Lincoln Cannon - Feed Your Head: How to Enhance Your Brain Now and Soon - The Eternities

‘We’re on the cusp of a biotech revolution that will make the information technology revolution of the late 90s / early 2000s look like a small thing in retrospect.’ Cannon, a philosopher and technologist, is a founder, board member and former president of the Mormon Transhumanist Association, the world’s largest advocacy network for the ethical use of technology and religion to extend human abilities.

He is also CEO of Thrivous, a company on a mission to connect customers to technologies to improve brain and body, starting with a range of cognitive enhancing nootropics. 5 Ways to Improve Nutrient Absorption. Eating all the right fruits, veggies, and healthy foods isn’t very much help if your body isn’t getting all that it can out of them.

5 Ways to Improve Nutrient Absorption

Check out these tips to learn how you can help your body to absorb more nutrients and get the most out of your healthy diet. 1. Pair Your Foods Properly Different nutrients paired together are more readily absorbed by the body than just one. The exact mechanism isn’t entirely clear, but researchers have identified a few foods that go particularly well together.

Pair avocado and tomatoes, for example, and you’ll see greater health benefits than from eating just one of them. And when you eat all three major B vitamins together (thiamine, B-6, and B-12), they work better to prevent artery damage. 2. A low-fat dressing on your salad may actually be preventing you from fully absorbing all of the available nutrients.

"It is useful to remember that the human body works on the minimum of anything it needs" Dr. D. C. Jarvis Bizarre chemical discovery gives homeopathic hint 19:00 07 November 2001 From New Scientist Print Edition. It is a chance discovery so unexpected it defies belief and threatens to reignite debate about whether there is a scientific basis for thinking homeopathic medicines really work. A team in South Korea has discovered a whole new dimension to just about the simplest chemical reaction in the book - what happens when you dissolve a substance in water and then add more water.

Conventional wisdom says that the dissolved molecules simply spread further and further apart as a solution is diluted. The discovery has stunned chemists, and could provide the first scientific insight into how some homeopathic remedies work. Some dilute to "infinity" until no molecules of the remedy remain. Further work showed it was no fluke. Is Sitting Killing You:How To Biohack Your Movement with Katy Bowman. Nutrients for Better Mental Performance.

Photosynthetic electron transport chain of the thylakoid membrane.

Electron transport chain

An electron transport chain (ETC) is a series of compounds that transfer electrons from electron donors to electron acceptors via redox reactions, and couples this electron transfer with the transfer of protons (H+ ions) across a membrane. This creates an electrochemical proton gradient that drives ATP synthesis, or the generation of chemical energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The final acceptor of electrons in the electron transport chain is molecular oxygen. Succinate dehydrogenase. In step 6 of the citric acid cycle, SQR catalyzes the oxidation of succinate to fumarate with the reduction of ubiquinone to ubiquinol.

Succinate dehydrogenase

This occurs in the inner mitochondrial membrane by coupling the two reactions together. Structure[edit] Cataplerosis and anaplerosis. Cataplerosis and Anaplerosis Cataplerosis and anaplerosis refer to two biochemical processes related to the Kreb’s cycle, also known as the citric acid cycle and Tricarboxylic Acid Cycle (TCA cycle).

cataplerosis and anaplerosis

The Kreb’s cycle is a series of enzymatic reactions that takes place in a cell’s mitochondria. These reactions help breakdown carbohydrate and fats provides the primary source of energy in most cells. In general, glucose and other carbohydrates as well as fats are broken down in to molecules that contain two carbon atoms before they enter the cycle. The Kreb’s cycle further breaks the molecules down to carbon dioxide and water and harnesses the energy of these reactions for cellular processes. Mitochondrion. Two mitochondria from mammalian lung tissue displaying their matrix and membranes as shown by electron microscopy Mitochondria can range from 0.5 to 1.0 μm in diameter.


A considerable variation can be seen in the structure and size of this organelle. Unless specifically stained, they are not visible. These structures are described as "the powerhouse of the cell" because they generate most of the cell's supply of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), used as a source of chemical energy.[3] In addition to supplying cellular energy, mitochondria are involved in other tasks, such as signaling, cellular differentiation, and cell death, as well as maintaining control of the cell cycle and cell growth.[4] Mitochondria have been implicated in several human diseases, including mitochondrial disorders,[5] cardiac dysfunction,[6] and heart failure.
