Caloric Restriction, Amino Acids, And Longevity

The effect of caloric restriction on longevity in animals has been observed as far back as 1935 when McCay observed extended lifespan in underfed rats. In that experiment, the rodents were weighed weekly and those on the restricted diet received calories based on weekly weight gain, they were allowed to gain 10g per week. The […]

Polyunsaturated fatty acids decrease the apparent affinity of vitamin D metabolites for human vitamin D-binding protein. Polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats affect vitamin D-binding protein, which transports vitamin D around the body. Mono- and polyunsaturated fatty acids markedly decreased the affinity of both 25-OHD3 and 1,25-(OH)2D3 for DBP, whereas saturated fatty acids (stearic and arachidic acid), […]
