Scientists shrink stroke damage in mice by calming immune cells outside brain

brain after a stroke, could meaningfully treat the stroke even days after it takes place, said Katrin Andreasson, MD, professor of neurology and neurological sciences. Such an approach may be preferable because the immune cells in question uniquely express, on their surfaces, a molecule that acts as an inflammatory loudspeaker. Turning down its volume softens the… Read More »

Glycine Quells Oxidative Damage by Inhibiting NOX Superoxide Production and Boosting NADPH

As you probably know, inflammation and oxidative damage are primary drivers of most chronic diseases. What you may not be aware of is the importance of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate hydrogen (NADPH) and NADPH oxidase, typically abbreviated as NOX, in these processes. In a recent paper,1 James DiNicolantonio, who also co-wrote my latest book “Superfuel,”… Read More »
