Neuroprotective role of intermittent fasting in senescence-accelerated mice


Dietary interventions have been proposed as a way to increase lifespan and improve health. The senescence-accelerated prone 8 (SAMP8) mice have a shorter lifespan and show alterations in the central nervous system. Moreover, this mouse strain shows decreased sirtuin 1 protein expression and elevated expression of the acetylated targets NFkappaB and FoxO1, Read the full article

everything you always wanted to know about Vitamin k2…


The Bottom Line:

Vitamin K2 deficiency is very common.
Vitamin K2 deficiency is associated with:

  •    Heart attacks.
  •    Osteoporosis.
  •    A shorter life span.

The best food sources of vitamin K2 are natto, organ meats, cheese and fermented foods (such as natto, sauerkraut, kim chi and fermented cheeses)

My advice:

  • Start eating liver, sauerkraut, natto and kim chi.
  • Natto = fermented soybeans – a slimy and smelly Japanese food – just any old soybean won’t do; it has to be the fermented variety.
