Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body that makes the structure of our bones, skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. If you are not intentionally consuming collagen-rich foods, there is a chance your body does not receive the needed amount of this protein.
Enriching your Bulletproof coffee with collagen is a great way to enjoy a tasty cup of joe while taking advantage of all the health benefits that come from collagen supplementation.
In this post, we cover everything you need to know to make your own Collagen Bulletproof Coffee, as well as its effect on the human body.
No. Theclassic Bulletproof coffee recipeis made with unsalted, grass-fed butter orghee, which is typically made from cow or goat milk. Dairy products. Hence it is not vegan. However, here's a Vegan Bulletproof Coffee Recipe.
Bulletproof coffee is a keto-friendly morning drink that was originally created byDave Aspreyand designed to be used as a breakfast replacement. It keeps you feeling full, energised, focused and helped many people with weight-loss.
SnakeWater is the latest sports performance drink from KetoneAid, the maker of KE1 and KE4 Ketone Esters. But what makes it so powerful?
In this post, KetoneAid founder and CEO, Frank Llosa, and pharmacist formulator, James Hughes go in-depth covering each and every KetoneAid SnakeWater ingredient to explain the science behind each compound and its effect on the human body.
Frank and James also talk about the main benefits of KetoneAid SnakeWater for keto and non-keto athletes as well as debunk some myths about using such ingredients as Taurine and Niacin.
Brett Melanson, a PhD Candidate in Behavioural Neuroscience, describes how exogenous ketone supplementation, precisely in the form of ketone esters, can enhance performance and possibly reduce anxiety-like state. Combining ketone esters with ketone-salts or MCTs may also enhance motor performance. The addition of keto esters to a ketogenic diet may also provide benefit in reducing the long-term elevations in lipid and cholesterol that can arise from a persistent ketogenic diet alone.
Nowadays, the idea of ketone ester diet has already been utilised by nutritional companies like Ketone Aid, which received positive feedback from athletes claiming a boost to their typical performance compared to training without the ketone ester supplementation.
Glucose or Ketones? Carbs or fats? Carbohydrates have been a staple part of meals for centuries, but there is evidence that ketones produce more energy per mole of substrate than glucose, while optimising body composition, cognition and sports performance.
Brett Melanson, a PhD Candidate in Behavioural Neuroscience, talks about how following a ketogenic diet allows our body to tap into fat stores to produce energy during extended periods of low glucose availability. He explains that burning ketones instead of glucose preserves carbohydrates in muscle. Therefore transitioning the body’s energy dependence from glucose to ketones could be beneficial in the long run, both mentally, and physically.

In this post, he gives practical recommendations on what to look for when buying eggs, as well as the healthiest way to cook and eat eggs for maximum benefits.
In a population of 786 Australian elders, higher concentrations of carotenoids (lutein and zeaxanthin) and vitamin C in plasma were associated with longer Telomere Length, which is positively correlated with longevity.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoids found in the egg yolks that concentrate mostly in the human eyes retina and macula, and to a lesser extent, in the liver and brain. Both of these compounds can help reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration as well as cataracts.
In this post, Dr. Berg describes the numerous health benefits of eating eggs: One of the key reasons that I consume eggs on a regular basis is not only do I enjoy it, but eggs have the greatest anabolic effect out of all the food options around. Anabolic means that it's contributing to growth. Building muscle protein.
48% of egg actually turns into your body tissue and that's pretty much the highest, not counting breast milk. Moreover, cholesterol and fat in the yolk actually help in the anabolic effect.
Egg whites have really low amounts of essential fatty acids, while egg yolk contains most of the nutrition.
