Jarrow Formulas Ultra Policosanols provides long-chain fatty alcohols that collectively have been shown to influence cholesterol metabolism as well as give better endurance.

Lecithin is important in the emulsification of fats for enhanced nutrient absorption, and is rich in phosphatidylcholine, a critical component of cellular membranes.

Lecithin and medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) have been added to this formula to improve the absorption of the policosanols.

Forget about exercising to lose weight: you can't outrun a bad diet! 

A few days ago, an article showed up in my newsfood about a remarkable result of research done on the Hadza tribe in Tanzania, which still leads a traditional hunter-gatherer lifestyle. 
Despite walking an average of a multiple of ten thousands of steps every day, they barely need more calories than the average couch potato in a Western country. 
That same day I discussed with an old friend who had read the same news story. He told me how he had trained for a marathon in the past, but barely dropped any weight while doing so. Only when he spent a week on liquid foods at a spa, he succeeded in losing weight which he mostly thanks to the relaxed environment. Otherwise it was next to impossible. Apparently his body really clung to its precious body fat! 
 
But how was this possible? We didn't really know though we had our suspicions. I I could tell much about the same story. Yes, I'd drop weight pretty fast in the first few weeks of the cycling season or on a longer cycling holiday, but would get stuck at my regular (still too heavy) summer weight while I wasn't really inhaling tons of food. Except then for the Route des Cent Cols during which I could barely eat enough to stay fit and sleep well for all those mountains. 
 
Let's find out more about this particular research!
 
When Herman Pontzer set off for the rugged savannah of Tanzania to spend a summer with the local Hadza people, he thought he knew what he would find. As an evolutionary biologist, his aim was to measure how the Hadza’s hunter-gatherer lifestyle causes them to burn more energy. Because we all know the more exercise you do, the more calories you burn and the slimmer you become, right? Well no, not exactly.
Don’t expect any meaningful weight change in the long term from exercise alone.”
 
What Pontzer and his fellow researchers discovered flew in the face of received wisdom about how our metabolism works. Although the Hadza lead far more active lives than ours – routinely walking long distances, they undertake more physical activity daily than the typical American does in a week – their energy expenditure was no greater. They were burning the same number of calories as men and women from industrialised populations. Our bodies, concluded Pontzer, seem to maintain daily energy expenditure within a narrow window, no matter what lifestyle we lead. While obesity is largely caused by overconsumption, it appears there’s little we can do to change the calories we burn.
 

Six reasons why eggs are awesome superfoods

Eggs are so nutritious they can be nicknamed nature's oldest superfood.
Eggs are abundant in essential vitamins and minerals as well as unique antioxidants and brain nutrients many people are lacking in their nutrition when they don't eat eggs regularly.

Here is a breakdown of the six reasons why eggs are such an awesome food choice

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!

A healthy gut, a healthy brain

Few people realize how the amount of microbes residing in our gut between the mouth and the end of the large intestine outnumber the amount of human eukaryotic cells by ten to one. This complex ecosystem is formed mainly by bacteria, but also viruses, archae, protozoa and fungi.

Even less known is how gut microbes lays a major role in host health by shaping the development of the immune system, metabolizing dietary nutrients (such as fatty acids, glucose and bile acids) and drugs, digesting complex indigestible polysaccharides and synthesizing vitamins and bioactive molecules.

Throughout different life stages, various changes occur in the microbial diversity of humans.
While babies are massively 'inoculated' with microbes from their mother during birth, smaller amounts enter the baby's gut via the bloodstream and placenta.
After birth, the composition of the gut microbes in the infant changes slowly with age, and stays mostly the same until old age.

While the composition of the gut microbes don't change much in a healthy adult, that is not to say that they aren't vulnerable to outside factors, such as lifestyle, use of antibiotics or even vaccinations, and overall health.
However, outside those factors, diet is one of the most important factors for gut health.
A change in a diet, especially by eating more or less fiber can change the composition of the gut microbitics within a few days. When this change is negative, a dysbiosis can result, characterized by an overgrowth of potentially pathogenic organisms.
This change in the delicate balance between 'good' and 'bad' organisms will result in a 'leaky' gut because of a more porous gut lining and cause chronic inflammation, which can even influence our brain because it also affects our central nervous system. So, as incredible as it sounds, an unhealthy diet can cause you to have an unhealthy brain as well.

This makes it easier to understand why an increasing amount of people try to improve gut health.

Is Alzheimer’s Disease the same as type 3 diabetes?

Alzheimer starves your brain, tangles and twists vital cells, and for decades it has been misrepresented as an untreatable, genetically determined disease. Alzheimer's disease is already an important cause of death in Western Europe and is expected to rise to the top. This devastating illness shares a strong link with another sickness that wreaks havoc on millions of people too: diabetes.

Why coconut oil is being demonized by the American Heart Association

You may have heard the news last week about new guidelines from on dietary fats from the American Heart Association (AHA). The part that made the most news around the globe is that coconut oil is unhealthy. It led to flashy newspaper articles as “Coconut Oil is as Bad as Butter”, “Coconut Oil is Unhealthy and Has Never Been Healthy”. Not only do these types of headlines cause increased confusion for the general population, for those of us who understand the nuances and politics behind the AHA’s statement it’s absolutely infuriating.

Seize the day, crack an egg?

In the past week, a discussion started between a dietician-foodie and a paleo/fitness-foodie, who embraced eating eggs without really giving a lot of arguments. The dietician wrote a critical article (in Dutch) to show the flaws of that bold statement.
