A coffee a day may keep Alzheimer’s at bay

A recently published article in Neurobiology of aging has found that moderate caffeine consumption may help reduce the decline of Alzheimer’s disease. The mouse study showed that 0.3g / l of caffeine in the drinking water eased some of the pro-inflammatory and oxidative stress markers associated with Alzheimer’s disease and improved results in a memory test.

Omega 3 improves exercise efficiency

A recently published article in Bioscience, Biotechnology and Biochemistry (Kawabata, 2014) suggests that a daily dose of 3.6g of fish oil can improve exercise efficiency.

In a double-blind study, the group of healthy male subjects, supplemented with EPA-rich fish oil, experienced a decrease in oxygen uptake needed for sub-maximal exercise. They also perceived the exercise as being easier.

This points to an increase in exercise economy, which is linked to an increase in exercise endurance.

A sachet of KetoactiveMind contains 3.5g of high quality fish oil rich in EPA and DHA in a tasty shot.
