Rich in flavanols The nutrients that we consume obviously impact our healthspan and lifespan, but studying their effects in a controlled environment in humans is not easy. Most...

A well-known preventative Acetylsalicylic acid, more commonly known as aspirin, is often taken at a steady, low dose of 100 to 300 milligrams a day in order to...
Obese mouse
Researchers publishing in Cell Reports Medicine have discovered that a vaccine targeting angiopoietin-like protein 3 (ANGPTL3) alleviates dyslipidemia and improves outcomes in obese mice. What is dyslipidemia? Dyslipidemia is marked by having an excess of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, a lack of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, or an excess of triglycerides.
