Jarrow Formulas Green Tea 500 is a very interesting product as in research it's main polyphenol EGCG seems to extend life in mice. The same polyphenol that increases fat burning and reduces C-Reactive Protein's (CRP's) that are a sign of inflammation. Studies with men undergoing a resistance training regimen the men consuming Green Tea had significantly lower CRP's in their blood stream than the control group. This contributes to the idea that with less CRP's in the bloodstream, less cortisol is released by the adrenals. Less cortisol means more muscle. At least in theory. You can try it yourself and see if this theory actually works.

Green Tea 500 is water extracted and consists of 40% polyphenols, including 30% catechins. Catechins are flavan monomers, the building blocks of OPCs. OPCs, OligoProanthoCyanidins, are polymers (or chains) of flavans. Catechins are generally more bioavailable and more potent antioxidants than proanthocyanidins.

background reading

A benefits laden beverage
The tea plant (Camellia sinensis L.) is a small shrub with dark green, narrow, serrated leaves primarily grown in India, Sri Lanka, China, Indonesia and Japan. Green tea accounts for approximately one fifth of the world’s tea production. It is a non-fermented tea in which the fresh young leaves are lightly steamed or pan-heated and then dried.

Green tea produces powerful effects in the areas of vasodilation and cardiovascular health. The other traditional uses for green tea are as an intestinal astringent, diuretic, and central nervous system stimulant.
Although the green tea beverage does contain caffeine, even sensitive individuals usually find that drinking tea does not produce the excessive stimulation that the same amount of caffeine from coffee can induce. This may be because green tea also contains the amino acid theanine, which is known to facilitate relaxation.

Catechins and more
Catechins are compounds which are related chemically to the pigments which give fruits and vegetables many of their bright colors. These pigments are often powerful antioxidants.
Catechins, are colorless, water soluble and easily assimilated by the body. They are considered to be among the best of the antioxidants found in the plant kingdom for regular ingestion. In many experimental models, catechins have been shown to provide more antioxidant protection than do the antioxidant vitamins C and E. There is considerable evidence that catechins which are linked to gallic acid (that is, EGCG, EGC and ECG) are even more potent antioxidants.

Toxin reduction and cellular health
Most epidemiological and clinical studies have examined the qualities of green tea that protect cellular DNA. Green tea polyphenols may inhibit the formation of cell-damaging nitrosamines, especially when the tea is taken at mealtimes. Nitrosamines are compounds which are formed when nitrites bind to amino acids. Modern farming practices often increase the nitrite and nitrate load found in foods due to the use of chemical fertilizers. Likewise, modern food processing often adds nitrites to meat products as preservatives to maintain freshness and color. Both animal and human trials have demonstrated that green tea strongly inhibits the formation of nitrosamines. In addition, diets which are high in protein will tend to increase the formation of nitrosamines as a result of digestive actions upon protein, and therefore green tea is an important addition to such diets.

Green tea catechins are powerful antioxidants which also may increase the activity of endogenous antioxidant enzyme systems, such as the glutathione detoxifi cation system. The glutathione detoxification system is an important component in the process that transforms fat-soluble toxins to water-soluble compounds which then can be removed from the body. Activating the production of enzymes such as glutathione peroxidase, glutathione reductase, glutathione- S-transferase, and catalase helps to eliminate the toxins from the body and bring into play natural defenses against cellular damage, including to DNA.

Increasing 24-hour energy expenditure
Clinical trials have found an increase in 24-hour energy expenditure with three doses per day of caffeine (50 mg) and 90 mg epigallocatechins from green tea. This level of intake of caffeine plus epigallocatechins leads to a “significant increase” (+4%) in energy expenditure.
Supplementing with 150 mg caffeine alone, however, does not lead to a significant increase in energy expenditure. In European trials, the individuals taking green tea extract used more fat calories than those taking the placebo.
A serving of 500 mg of Jarrow Formulas Green Tea 5:1 extract supplies approximately 140 mg epigallocatechins (as EGC and EGCG). Two servings per day would therefore match the epigallocatechin intake found to be useful in these studies when consumed with a moderate amount of caffeine. Each 500 mg capsule contains only 40mg of caffeine.

Green tea extract is not associated with any significant side effects or toxicity at the recommended level of intake. Some individuals with sensitive stomachs may react to the polyphenol content of green tea extract. This reaction can be avoided by taking the extract with food.

The true danger of COVID-19 vaccines : why we should avoid leaky vaccines

Two weeks ago I wrote in my blog on how I did not want a vaccine out of madness because governments won't allow the use of HCQ or ivermectin, both of which are both safe and cheap treatments against COVID-19.
However, I said to not see anything wrong in the vaccine itself. By now I've changed my mind. No, I don't actually deem mRNA vaccines to be unsafe, nor am I too worried about the very rare side-effects of clotting.

What truly spooked me is the fact these are 'leaky' vaccines, which allows viruses to still infect people despite being vaccinated. They just won't get sick, but can become hosts of viruses that may still infect unvaccinated people. Who , in the end no longer will have any other choice but to get vaccinated when a virus has mutated into a too dangerous variant.

At least this is the theory from dr Geert Vanden Bossche, a prominent virologist who spoke out against massive vaccination.

Why is the fact those vaccines are leaky so scary? Let me explain with an article on Marek's disease in chickens.

Should I get the vaccin against COVID-19 or not? On vaccines, ivermectin, paracetamol and fever 

By late April most older adults in the Netherlands will have received an invitation from the government or their physicians to get vaccinated. My own invitation came in this past week, quite a bit earlier than expected. 
 
To be honest, it took me much longer to decide than anticipated. And no, it wasn't just because of all the health scares around the AstraZeneca vaccin due to rare thrombosis incidences. 
 
In general, I'm a fan of vaccinations. As a child I received all of the vaccins that were given to us, with no questions asked.
When travelling to Brazil in 2002, I also followed the guidelines to get vaccinated against yellow fever and hepatitis B. 
 
Like most people, I've also been in awe about the speed at which vaccines were developed for COVID-19. Unlike some, I'm also not as concerned about the use of new mRNA technology to develop the Moderna and Pfizer vaccins. What does appal me though is the high cost for these vaccins, that run in to almost €20 for those high tech vaccins as opposed to just about €2 for a traditional vaccin like Oxford AstraZeneca.
What's worse is that those vaccins don't even offer absolute protection and people may be reinfected with a newer virus strain. Or they may require yearly booster vaccins. 
 
As I was pondering whether or not to get vaccinated, a Youtube video passed by in which dr. John Campbell interviewed dr. Pierre Kory. 
 

Hearing problems and COVID-19: tinnitus explained

 
Among people suffering from what is called 'long-COVID' a new ailment sprang up, tinnitus. Not one that is commonly reported, but it came to the headlines recently when a the founder of a restaurant chain committed suicide after suffering from severe tinnitus as a result of COVID-infection.
 
While tinnitus is not a symptom you'd expect from a virus, tinnitus is much more common than you'd expect as you rarely hear people complain about it. 
Turns out, there's not much known about tinnitus. You'd expect it is the same as for hearing loss after exposure to excessive noise from work, hobby or a singular event like a very loud concert, fireworks or explosions. While true, that's not the only reason why people contract tinnitus. 
 
Let's start with the relation between tinnitus and the virus. 

Hearing problems and COVID-19

 

Set point and holiday weight gain

At the time of writing this article the first week of advent has almost finished. In this week most people will have started decorating their homes for the holiday season that is upon us.
Though for most this period may not be as festive as it normally is, since it is not allowed to organize large gatherings because of COVID-19, we can still try to make the most of it and indulge in the small pleasures of life. 
 
Quite a lot of people that are trying to become fit and trim worry about the holiday season and what damage it will do to their progress: how can they avoid weight gain during those days? 
We can reassure the worryworts: you will be fine to indulge on those special days. With emphasis on 'special' days as nothing spectacular will happen when you eat normal on the other days. The bigger problem is when you spread out those days over an extended period of say two to three weeks. 
 
But even with a longer period of dietary negligence, most people notice it is surprisingly easy to get rid of the extra holiday weight, due to a wonderful (and scary) phenomenon called 'set point'. 
 

Tips and tricks to keep your house cool without airconditioning

After having survived the hottest two weeks of the past century, and hearing about the deliberate choice to switch of the power in some areas of California as it became impossible to match the demand for electricity, due to the massive use of airconditioning, this week's topic had to be about how to keep your house and yourself cool without needing to rely on energy-guzzling airconditioning.

How to make better food and lifestyle choices 

Ever since Boris Johnson barely survived an infection with COVID-19, he embraced a healthier lifestyle. He doesn't just want to live healthier himself, but also wants the British people to eat and live healthier as well. 
The question is, how? Over time, manufacturers of junkfood have mastered the game of tricking us into buying calorific foods while these foods are also attractive because we have evolved to enjoy that kind of foods. 
 
Aside from financial incentives to make us buy less junkfood (sugar tax) and more healthy foods (by lowering VAT) the best bet seems to be a mix of methods that 'nudge' us into making better choices.
 
There have been countless behavioural science-based initiatives intended to nudge healthier eating. But which ones actually work, leading to a sustained behaviour change? And of those, which are most effective? What concepts, tools and styles of intervention are best at getting us to eat healthy foods, or less of the unhealthy foods...?

Zinc and HCQ

In the past few months, nearly everyone will have become familiar with the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and how it has been welcomed as a miracle drug, only to be set aside as being too dangerous to expose sick patients with underlying cardiovascular diseases to it.

Upon learning how HCQ is supposed to be used in this crisis, I was flabbergasted to read how HCQ was put to use by itself, as a drug on its own. True enough, HCQ is a malaria drug, but it was not just meant to be used as a curative medicin on its own for COVID-19 but as a messenger to transport the true miracle mineral, zinc into cells.
The now famous Zelenko protocol which uses HCQ , azithromycin and zinc as well as a number of other essential vitamins and minerals, was never meant to be used in hospital either, but for use by doctors on patients who had just fallen ill.

Now the researchers who discredited HCQ in the Lancet article have been debunked as having used fraudulous data in order to promote a much more expensive drug in which one of the authors had a vested interested, we think it is about time to explain a thing or two on why and how HCQ is used in combination with zinc.

Leptin, leptin resistance and SIRT1

After demand for resveratrol and pterostilbene went up considerably, due to a remark on tv by a doctor about its' effect on leptin and cardiovascular function, we got a lot of requests to explain how leptin works. 

Currently, a major topic in the field of obesity research is the link between obesity and the hormone leptin. Some evidence suggests that obese-prone individuals don’t respond to increasing leptin levels in the same way that non-obese-prone individuals do, which is the reason obesity is now being associated with possible “leptin resistance.” Scientists first discovered leptin in 1994, after years of research focused on hormones that affect body weight and calorie intake. While initially researchers believed the discovery could be used to create powerful weight loss supplements, this has never happened.

How does leptin function in the body and where does the hormone come from? Leptin interacts with areas of the brain that control hunger and eating behavior. The nickname “the starvation hormone” has been given to leptin because levels tend to plummet when someone restricts their calorie intake too much, exercises more and loses body fat. These are all factors involved in what’s called “starvation mode.”
Meanwhile, ghrelin is called a “hunger hormone” that increases your desire to eat.

At your ideal “set point weight,” fat cells produce a given amount of leptin, which maintains the internal energy balance needed for necessary cellular function and proper weight management. In most healthy adults, changes in body weight will trigger changes in leptin, causing appetite to either increase when body fat falls or decrease when body fat rises — although in some susceptible individuals this energy-balance system seems to malfunction.

There’s still a lot to learn about how leptin resistance or decreased sensitivity to leptin’s signals develops, and what can be done to prevent or reverse it. Many experts believe that eating a highly processed diet — especially while also leading a stressful and mostly sedentary lifestyle — is the perfect storm for developing leptin resistance.

Even if someone is genetically susceptible to weight gain or obesity, there’s still a lot they can do to help prevent this from happening, especially eating a nutrient-dense diet, getting enough exercise and taking steps to manage stress.

How to love your body?

With all these standards for beauty, it’s easy to plummet into a spiral of body-hating. Don’t succumb to the pressure! Love your body, no matter what!
Body shaming is, sadly, a trend these days. You have songs that hate on the skinny girls because “real women have curves.” Then you have songs about shaming people who don’t happen to have the body type of a Victoria’s Secret model. We all know that no one is perfect, but there are still some people who insist on telling people how they should look, how they should act, what size they should be, what their hair color should look like.

Everyone has the right to love their own body. Whether you’re skinny, fat, tall, short, missing a limb, dark-skinned, pale-skinned, what have you, every single body in the world deserves to be loved. It’s just a shame that so many people insist on hating on their bodies, simply because they don’t conform to the unrealistic standards set by society.

Should I worry about my cholesterol levels?

Recently, new guidelines were introduced for what is deemed to be a healthy cholesterol level. While formerly, it was adviced to introduce cholesterol lowering drugs when your 'bad' cholesterol level amounted to over 2.5 mmol/litre, that number now dropped to 1.8.
This big drop will probably result in a vast increase of people that are being administered cholesterol lowering drugs.

But what if I told you, cholesterol is a poor marker for heart health?

For decades, cholesterol testing has served as that warning for many. An elevated level of "bad" LDL cholesterol has been just the warning people needed to change their ways. It has played that role for several reasons. People like tests because the results seem objective. Reliable measurement of cholesterol is easy and relatively inexpensive. It makes sense biologically. LDL cholesterol, a protein-wrapped package containing fat and cholesterol, tends to slip out of the bloodstream and lodge in blood vessel walls, forming the plaque that leads to clots and heart attacks.

And it makes sense statistically. The correlation between lowering your LDL and lowering your chances of having a heart attack or developing other forms of heart disease is well documented. Indeed, exercise and dietary changes are good for the heart partly because they lower LDL cholesterol levels.

Usefulness of herbal medicine in modern times

Natural plant products have been used throughout human history for various purposes. In fact, written records of the use of herbal medicine date back more than 5000 years, and for much of history, herbal medicine was the only medicine.

Today, plants are being used to treat a number of health concerns and conditions, including allergies, arthritis, migraines, fatigue, skin infections, wounds, burns, gastrointestinal issues and even cancer, proving that it’s true that food is medicine. These herbs are less expensive and they’re a safer means of treatment than conventional medications, which is why so many people are choosing to go back to this traditional idea of medicine.

Exercise or diet, what's better for weight loss?

Especially in January, we are asked whether it is better to lose weight by exercise or by diet.
The response I mostly give is that diet is the more efficient method but makes you grumpy and if you overdo it, will lose muscle, while exercise can make you happy, fit and strong.
A few years ago the discovery how in general, exercise doesn't make you lose weight made headlines.
In my former life as a long-distance cyclist I'd have shaken my head in disbelief.. after all, every single spring, fat would almost literally melt away once the cycling season started.

Anyhow, as counterintuitive as it seems to mile-eating cardio-junkies, exercising more is not the best solution to weight loss mostly because the weight piles on off-season.
True enough , once the season was over, the fat would pile on equally fast. Why?
Quite simply, unlike many of my cycling buddies who were also passionate about (marathon) skating, I didn't practice any other sport. Some others refused to skate indoor and only wanted to skate on natural ice, which has become a rarity in the the past 30 years!
Of course I knew exercise burns calories, but somehow it is very difficult to adjust to diet upwards or downwards as appetite lags behind so much!

What is PSA?

Every year, thousands of men are told they have a high PSA level after undergoing a routine screening test. The most important and most concerning cause of an elevated PSA is prostate cancer. However, prostate cancer is only one of many potential causes of an elevated PSA. Virtually anything that irritates the prostate will cause your PSA to rise, at least temporarily.

What exactly is PSA? PSA or Prostate-specific antigen is a protein produced by the prostate and found in the blood.
A PSA blood test can detect prostate cancer early, which makes it seem like a no-brainer to get tested.
Many prostate cancers grow slowly, so a PSA test may save the lives of some men whose prostate cancer would go undetected otherwise.
However, there is a downside to testing for PSA as quite frequently there is no real health risk even though somenone's PSA-levels are elevated. Some men will undergo unnecessary surgeries or radiation treatments, which could cause lifelong problems such as erectile dysfunction or incontinence.

Losing weight in a healthy way

Most of us have made at least one resolution for the new year and for many that will be to lose weight as well as eating more healthily and exercise more often.
While it is great to be able to fit back into that awesome pair of trousers that has become too tight, eating healthily should be your top prioritiy.
That is because eating healthily means you are paying attention to what you feed your body, rather than you simply fill it with empty calories.
