Cinnamon Extract Creatine Booster

Creatine booster: cinnamon extract | Flex | Find Articles at BNET:

"Cinnamon extract (which contains high levels of hydroxychalcone) imitates the effects of insulin and potentiates the release of insulin from the pancreas. Additionally, cinnamon extract may enhance insulin binding in muscle cells, which could lead to better uptake of glucose, creatine and amino acids by muscle tissue. Improving glucose uptake promotes glucose utilization and, in turn, glycogen synthesis, which helps in recovery from intense exercise. Boosting amino acid uptake aids protein synthesis and muscle growth. Aside from its beneficial effects on insulin, cinnamon extract has also been shown to improve blood levels of triglycerides, total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol."

Brazil Nuts And Selenium

Dr. Jonny Bowden's Blog::

"Recently, researchers from New Zealand asked a group of adult volunteers to consume either two Brazil nuts, 100 mcg of selenium as a supplement, or a placebo for 12 weeks. Even though the nuts averaged just 53 mcg of selenium, at the end of the 12 weeks, the nut eaters had increased their blood levels by over 64% while the supplement takers had increased theirs by a still very respectable 61%. The nut eaters also had more than twice the blood levels of an important selenium-dependent enzyme, glutathione peroxidise."

Boron and Arthritis

Boron and Arthritis:

"In countries where there are minimum amounts of available boron in the soil there is much more arthritis. In most developed countries there are about 20% of people with some musculo-skeletal disease, which is generally arthritis. In places where there is more than usual boron in the soil there is much less arthritis"

Aphrodisiacs: Honey

Honey The Study of Aphrodisiacs:

"In addition to Boron, honey is a relatively rich source of a chemical called chrysin. Chrysin acts in the same way as Boron, blocking the conversion of testosterone into estrogen. In a 21 day study on people in Italy, it was found that eating honey did reduce the conversion of testosterone into estrogen"

Increase Libido


"Celery While celery may not be the first food that comes to mind when you're thinking sex, it can be a fantastic source food for sexual stimulation. This is because it contains androsterone, an odorless hormone released through male perspiration and turns women on.

How to enjoy this libido food: Celery is best eaten raw. Wash and cut some, and munch away."

Spices May Protect Against Consequences Of High Blood Sugar

Spices May Protect Against Consequences Of High Blood Sugar:

"The researchers found a strong and direct correlation between the phenol content of common herbs and spices and their ability to inhibit the formation of AGE compounds. Spices such as cloves and cinnamon had phenol levels that were 30 percent and 18 percent of dry weight, respectively, while herbs such as oregano and sage were eight and six percent phenol by dry weight, respectively. For comparison, blueberries – which are widely touted for their antioxidant capabilities – contain roughly five percent phenol by dry weight."

When blood sugar levels are high, protein glycation occurs in which the sugar bonds with proteins to form AGE compounds. These compounds activate the immune system, resulting in the inflammation and tissue damage associated with aging and diabetes.

Cardiovascular Risk: Low Sodium Diets Might Be Worse Than High Salt Diets

Cardiovascular Risk: Low Sodium Diets Might Be Worse Than High Salt Diets:

"Contrary to long-held assumptions, high-salt diets may not increase the risk of death, according to investigators from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University. They reached their conclusion after examining dietary intake among a nationally representative sample of adults in the U.S. The Einstein researchers actually observed a significantly increased risk of death from cardiovascular disease (CVD) associated with lower sodium diets."

"The first thing we do with men showing signs of female fat distribution is to access their zinc level. Nearly 100% of the population is severely deficient in zinc. The next step is to get them on natural anti-estrogens such as green tea, grape seed extracts, and resveratrol."

Krill Oil 48x Better Than Fish Oil?

Krill Oil 48x Better Than Fish Oil?:

"Krill oil, logically enough, comes from krill, which are small, shrimp like crustaceans that inhabit the cold ocean areas of the world, primarily the Antarctic and North Pacific Oceans.

Despite their small size–one to five centimeters in length–krill make up the largest animal biomass on the planet. According to Neptune Technologies, the Canadian company that holds the patent for krill oil extraction, there are approximately 500 million tons of krill roaming around in these northern seas, 110,000 tons of which are harvested annually.

Krill oil, like fish oil, contains both of the omega-3 fats, eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA), but hooked together in a different form…"
