what’s new …

YOU NEED MORE PROTEIN THAN YOU THINK! It’s not so much that we’re overweight as under-muscled, says Dr Gabrielle Lyon, an integrative physician with a fellowship in Nutritional Sciences and Geriatrics.

sleep science

Getting enough sleep is essential for every single area in your life, from weight-loss to mental wellbeing. Now Boston sleep scientist Laura Lewis can explain why: in the deep non-REM (non-rapid eye movement) stage of sleep, waves of clear cerebrospinal liquid flow through our brains, ridding them of toxins and other metabolic by-products – and we absolutely need to be asleep for that to happen. Alzheimer’s is one of the things this process helps protect against, she believes, but certainly not the only one. Get your ZZZZZs!…
