Low-Carb Diet Finding: Study Identifies New Regulator Of Fat Metabolism -- ScienceDaily


"Over the past several years, animal studies have shown that high-fat, low-carbohydrate "ketogenic" diets cause demonstrable changes in metabolism and subsequent weight loss. Now, researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) have identified a key mechanism behind this turn of events. Their findings, which appear in the June 2007 issue of Cell Metabolism, demonstrate that a liver hormone known as FGF21 is required to oxidize fatty acids -- and thereby burn calories"

A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of resveratrol for Alzheimer disease. - PubMed - NCBI


Resveratrol was safe and well-tolerated. Resveratrol and its major metabolites penetrated the blood-brain barrier to have CNS effects. Further studies are required to interpret the biomarker changes associated with resveratrol treatment.

Ät Dig Frisk anmärkning:
Resveratrol är kanske mest känd för att finnas i Vin, men bara för att resveratrol finns i vin, så betyder det inte att vin är nyttigt. För att komma upp i de doser man använt i denna studie så behöver man dricka upp till 1´000 FLASKOR vin om dagen.

Rethinking fat as a fuel for endurance exercise. - PubMed - NCBI



...... Beyond simply providing a stable source of fuel for the brain, the major circulating ketone body, beta-hydroxybutyrate, has recently been shown to act as a signalling molecule capable of altering gene expression, eliciting complementary effects of keto-adaptation that could extend human physical and mental performance beyond current expectation ......
