Taurine: Energy Booster or Total Bull?

We’ve all seen the ads: Red Bull “gives you wings.” Sports supplements will keep you strong. These products point to the amino acid taurine as an essential ingredient – and the reason for those claims. At first glance, the promises make sense. After all, taurine gets its name from the Latin word for “bull.” Take in enough of this nutrient and you’ll be able to work – and work out – faster, stronger, and harder. Right? Well, not exactly.

There’s a remarkable story I want to tell you. Amid the ashes of the horrific World War II bombing of Hiroshima stood a lush, green tree, unmarred by the blast.

Today, scientists are learning that this tree, the world’s oldest living species, may hold the answers to Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, and other age-related woes. There’s no doubt about it.

The disease I’m talking about is diabetes, a disorder that affects nearly 26 million Americans and growing. The plant? Well, that’s called fenugreek. And while more research is needed, […]

Chia: Nature’s Most Perfect Superfood?

Who doesn’t love the idea of a “superfood” – an edible, one-stop-shop brimming with beneficial compounds? You’re probably familiar with many popular superfoods, like blueberries, salmon, and whole grains. But what if I told you there’s a super-superfood – one that contains all the important nutrients in these foods, and then some? In fact, gram for gram, this substance offers more omega-3 fatty acids than salmon, more calcium than milk, more fiber than all-bran cereal, and more antioxidants than blueberries.

Niacin: More Effective and Safer than Statins?

For most of us cholesterol is a bad word. Everyone from doctors and scientists to regulatory agencies and drug companies (and especially the media) blames cholesterol for everything bad that happens to us health-wise.
