Down the Rabbit Hole: When Phytate Becomes a Nutrient

Primarily found in higher concentrations in cereal grains, it binds to important minerals in our food, such……...

Guys, imagine having to go in every year, dangle your package between two cold plates of some metallic alloy—designed to be cold, impersonal, and clinical. To add insult, the nurses in attendance will simply……...

The First Non-Weight-Loss Body Recomposition Success Story on Resistant Starch

Dispelling Paleomyths: Humans Ate a Lot of Starch, Even During the Ice Age
