Muscle, menopause and glucose

The relationship between muscle, menopause and glucose are inextricably linked if you seek optimal health. A few weeks ago, we shared a post discussing the importance of muscle for metabolic health. Muscle — and, in particular, having more muscle — is linked to better insulin sensitivity and glucose utilization. The body also burns more calories at rest when it has a higher amount of muscle, making it easier to maintain a healthy body weight and also maintain bone density. […]

Food labels, explained

Our food system here in the United States is a complex topic, and even more so given that the cost of goods is increasing. What differentiates between an organic product and a conventional one? Or a “grass fed” piece of meat versus “grain fed?” And what’s this “pasture raised” stuff? […]

Exercise Benefits the Brain

Exercise benefits the brain in many measurable ways. A popular book among our team of personal trainers is “Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain.” Written by John J Ratey, MD and Eric Hagerman, “Spark” argues that exercise helps produce “Miracle-Gro for the brain.” Most of the evidence supporting this argument was drawn from the previous decade of studies on learning capacity, cognitive decline, and brain health. The book is now seven years old, making some of that evidence almost old enough to vote. […]
