I often talk about unhealthy fats, like saturated fats and trans fats, that increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. Omega-3 fatty acids are the best example of healthy fats that the body needs to function at an optimal level. The three most important types of omega-3 fatty acids are ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), […]

Earlier this month, Reuters published a roundup of studies on COVID-19 that focused on risk factors, treatment options, and other issues. The top headline of the article focuses on how gut health affects COVID-19 severity and immune response. More specifically, a two-hospital study of 100 patients found that gut microbiome composition was significantly altered in […]

Student Reading label on soda can

As we head into another presidential election cycle, we’re starting to hear from people who want to bring back civics courses to every school in America. People need to learn about how government works, the rights and responsibilities of citizens, and why these rights and responsibilities are important. We also hear people demand that schools […]

Blood test nutrigenomics

Man deciding between medication and food

If you sprained your ankle, would you jump off a table 15 times in a row? Then why in the name of all that is reasonable would someone with inflammation continue to fill their body with inflammatory foods? I get that the pain you would feel by repeatedly jumping on a sprained ankle would be […]

Big Soda Is at It Again. When Will We Take a Stronger Stand?

A reader of my blog sent me a screenshot of paid content from the American Beverage Association that appeared on a major news network’s website. When I say “paid content,” I’m referring to advertising that’s dressed up to look like the kinds of articles that visitors actually go to the website to read. There were […]

Intestinal Permeability

In Part 1 of our blog series on intestinal permeability, we explained what intestinal permeability is and why it’s a problem. When there’s an imbalance of gut bacteria, the passage of toxins, digestive proteins, bacteria and viruses from the gastrointestinal system into the bloodstream becomes unregulated.

Intestinal Permeability

In Part 1 of our blog series on intestinal permeability, we explained what intestinal permeability really is and why the more popular term, leaky gut, doesn’t make sense. The gut is supposed to “leak” to allow nutrients into the bloodstream while the immune system fights off any toxins that sneak through the gastrointestinal wall. However, […]

Intestinal Permeability

Leaky gut has become a bit of a buzzword as more healthcare providers wake up to the fact that the food we put into our bodies can get into the bloodstream and affect our health. Unfortunately, we’ve found that many people don’t take the term “leaky gut” seriously. Not only does it sound silly, but […]

Because there’s no license for nutrition in New Jersey, a lot of different people make nutritional recommendations, from those with degrees in nutrition to dietitians and gym owners. In many doctor’s offices, “nutrition” amounts to a brief patient history and stepping on a scale. If your weight is appropriate, you’re told everything is fine. If […]
