TMAO: Eggs, Meats and Your Cardio-Metabolic Health | You Can Sill Eat Eggs & Meat, If You Got 'the Right Gut Bugs'

The (ill) health effects of choline and its pre-cursor l-carnitine in animal products like eggs or (red) meats are probably mediated by a diet devoid of prebiotics... however, simply pounding more resistant starches, for example, seems to do more harm than good. If you have been following the SuppVersity  News on Facebook ( a must , btw ;-)), you will be aware of the "TMAO"-issue. If not, here's the gist: The ingestion of certain dietary nutrients - primarily choline, phosphatidylcholine, and its precursor l-carnitine can serve as a precursor for the ultimate generation of an atherogenic metabolite, trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO).

While all three studies in this research update have been published last year, they are by no means "yesterday's news" - not even for those of you who "know" the studies which investigated (A) the effects of vitamin D supplementation on the suboptimal testosterone levels of 100 hypogonadal men, (B) the initially very similar but eventually fundamentally different effects of green- and black-tea supplements on the obesogenic effects of high-energy diets, and (C) the beneficial effects of the co-ingestion of plant protein on healthy people's postprandial glucose levels. What's new? Well, study A doesn't really tell you that vitam
