A new study has been published that again demonstrates the value of eating a high-protein meal to start the day. This corroborates 3Care’s position that a macronutrient strategy is critical in dealing with hormonal signaling, and in turn can address many metabolc disorders that are correlated to the obese state. Here are the highlights from the findings: Continue reading “Recent study demonstrates the benefits of a high-protein meal on satiety and as a tool in battling obesity”
About 95% of Americans may have sub-optimal levels of omega-3s that put them at increased risk of cardiovascular disease, says a new study.
Omega-3’s have been clinically demonstrated to improve two important markers of heart health; the lowering of trigylcerides and the improvement of HDL cholesterol levels. To get these effects with patients it is important to understand dosing levels and ratios of EPA-DHA and of those fractions to total omega-3’s. Here is what the data shows.
Do you suffer from a weakened immune system? Rheumatoid arthritis? GI issues, or Skin conditions?
We all would like to stay lean and fit. We know that exercise and diet play a key role. But it’s not just how much you eat, it’s when you eat and what you eat that counts as well. One aspect of that is how we start our day. The research on obesity and dietary patterns keeps pointing to the importance of starting the day with a high protein, low glycemic meal.
Though the condition-specific platform, as it relates to either EPA or DHA dominance, is still a “work in progress,” we do see some areas that have emerged. One such area is EPA for inflammatory conditions. EPA has a unique mechanism of action.
It’s no secret, that as we age us males are in continual decline with our Testosterone (T) levels. By age 50, we can have 15-220 % lower T levels than we did at age 30. This is why we see the emergence of prescription medications that address low T. Continue reading “The Low Testosterone Problem”
