Clients always ask me if they should take BCAAs. My answer is usually yes. Then they want to know what kind to take. Before I get into any of that, do you know why you might want to take BCAAs? Let me explain what they are and why you might want to take them.

I have boycotted whey protein for years now. I am discovering this might be the wrong thing to do. Back in the day I used to use whey protein isolate. Isolate means they took almost all the fat out of the milk and it has a higher percentage of protein. Whey was the way to go for bodybuilding because it was a complete protein and had all 9 or I think in those days it was only 8 essential amino acids. Essential meaning our bodies don’t produce them and we have to take them in with diet.
Last week I wrote an article talking about how 50% of articles written are 100% bullshit. I didn’t mention in that article how many studies are also crap. I have heard about half the studies are also skewed to prove a product. One of my clients is a pediatrician who studied this exact topic while getting her PhD. When I asked her what percentage of studies are false, all she said was, "A lot." and chuckled.
There is a ketogenic summit going on right now and I highly recommend everyone has a listen here. It seems like every doctor is writing a book on how fat is good for you and all the benefits of eating good fats.

This engineer was intimately familiar with the technology and he said that the technology wasn’t ready for production. He said it was completely dangerous for those who eat it and for the environment. Dr. Jeffrey Smith has been trying to eliminate GMOs ever since.
The Microbiome Summit was last weekend and 33 doctors got together to talk about the bacteria of the body. Many of the doctors at this summit believe the microbiome is the one of the greatest discoveries in modern medicine and the unseen root cause (or cure), of almost all health problems. The doctors say the bacteria is our greatest allies against disease and illness
As an EMT, half the people I see going to the emergency room are in for abdominal problems and half of those people leave the hospital undiagnosed. While your family doctor argues with an alternative medicine doctor about whether leaky gut syndrome exists or not, let me explain what it is, how it’s caused, and what to do about it. I want you to know this isn’t like the sasquatch; you see it every day, it has a profound effect on our society, and you probably have it to some
This is a very common question cuz who doesn’t like dairy?? I’ll briefly list the reasons and like always feel free to contact me with any questions.
1. The processing- like all processed foods, there is very little nutrition in dairy. All dairy is processed in some way unless you’re getting it straight from the animal. Homogenization,
