Does it All Begin W/ Vitamin K in the Gut? Vitamin K ⇆ Gut Interactions Link in Intestinal Dysbiosis, Prostate Health and an Emerging Cause of Severe Pregnancy Complications?

Is there a "bacterial link" between prostate issues and pregnancy complications? Are both promoted by a messed up microbiome? You know what a hypothesis is, right? Well, in that case the title of the scientific journal "Medical Hypothesis" should tell you that the two studies the "results" of which I am about to present in the following brief write-up are hypothetical. This means, it will require further research efforts to prove that vitamin K is the missing link in prostate health and to confirm that instestinal dysbioses (=messed up gut microbiome) are at the heart of the an ever-increasing number of pregnancy complications. As of now, both assumptions are based on scientific evidence, the "last" 100% convincing evidence, however, is still missing.

RT & Vibration or Plyometric Training for Runners? Can You Outtrain Colon Cancer and How Does it Work? Plus: What's the Verdict on Exercise to Prevent Metabolic Damage?

Make room for cardio & strength training in your workout routine. Both offer significant and scientifically proven health benefits, but neither cardio or strength the will prevent diet-induced obesity, when you eat everything in sight. Time for another installment of the SuppVersity Short News on exercise science. This installment features the effects of strength training associated with whole body vibration training on running economy and vertical stiffness (Roschel. 2015), the acute effects of plyometric intervention on sprinting performance (Mackala. 2015), the anti-colon-cancer effects of aerobic training (Frajacomo. 2015) and, finally, the effects of exercise training and energy expenditure following weight loss (Hunter. 2015). When we are already talking "metabolic damage", let's top that off with a brief reminder that hyperphagia = eating everything in sight, not a reduced energy expenditure is the most significant contributor to post-diet weight regain.

L-Tryptophan is Reduced While Dieting - Does This Make the Essential Amino Acid a Key to Successful Weight Loss?

Trp and it's metabolite 5-HTP may be particularly useful for female sugar cravings and binges. Can l-tryptophan help you lose body fat? If you look at the results of the latest study from the University for Health Sciences, Medical Informatics and Technology it would seem that the answer to this question may be "Possibly, yes, but..." Before we come to the implications I would yet like to take a closer look at said study which shows that a lack of tryptophan (Trp) during diets does not just affect the biosynthesis of serotonin, but may also be associated with increased susceptibility for mood disturbances and carbohydrate craving. Accordingly, "strategies to supplement Trp while dieting could be highly useful in treating uncontrolled weight gain or in preventing neuropsychiatric symptoms" (Strasser. 2014). Honestly, fasting and eating / skipping breakfast may be more promising weight loss tools Breakfast and Circadian Rhythm Does Meal Timing Mat

Study Comparing Whey & Pea Protein Finds Superior Gains in Sleeve Size W/ Pea, But the Results May be Misleading

One study wouldn't be enough to prove that pea is superior to whey as muscle builder, anyways. In a recent study, French scientist investigated the effects of two types of protein supplementation on muscle thickness and strength in 161 moderate physically active (2–6 hours per week) male participants (mean age 22 years). More specifically, the scientists compared the effects of vegetable Pea protein (NUTRALYS®) vs. Whey protein and Placebo on biceps brachii muscle thickness and strength after a 12-week resistance training program. And as the headline already reveals: The pea protein had the upper hand, when it comes to biceps brachii size, but the way the gains were measured and superior strength gains in the whey group raise questions about whether the results of this study are practically relevant - meaning you have to switch from whey to pea.
