The Constant Conversation: Exploring the Mysteries of Cellular Communication

By Kristen Schepker

A 3D model of the intracellular landscape of a eukaryotic cell, created from X-ray, NMR, and cryo-electron microscopy data sets by Evan Ingersoll & Gael McGill using the Digizyme Molecular Maya software. New insights about cell signalling mechanisms are redefining many long-held medical truisms.

Your cells are talking to each other. Can you hear what they’re saying?

Physician and neuroscientist Jon Lieff, MD asks this simple yet profound question with his new book, The Secret Language of Cells.

In this new and fascinating work, Lieff tunes in to the biological conversions taking place deep inside the body to show how a myriad of different kinds of cells—from brain and blood cells to bacteria and even viruses—all use a common language to communicate.

How Body Recomposition Can Revolutionize Your Patients’ Health

Written by Stacy Collier

Body recomposition refers to the process of gaining muscle and losing fat simultaneously. It is not a specific diet or exercise plan. Rather, it is a set of principles and practices that help people build muscle and strength, lose fat, and establish healthy eating and exercise habits. When followign the 5 main pillars of body […]

A Revolution in CoQ10: Advancing Energetics through Cellular Metabolite Optimization

Written by Erik Goldman

Co-enzyme Q10 is among the most widely purchased dietary supplements worldwide. Yet many people who take it don’t get the optimal benefits they seek from this important metabolic cofactor. 

New research suggests that Geranylgeraniol (GG), a naturally-occurring substance in the seeds of the Annatto plant (Bixa Orellana), can increase the body’s natural production of CoQ10, improve its absorption by cells, and optimize the effects of CoQ10 supplementation.

Clinically, the combination of GG and Ubiquinol can reverse skeletal muscle damage, restore muscle function, ameliorate the adverse impact of statin drugs, and improve energy production in the heart and other organs with high metabolic rates. 

In this webinar, Barrie Tan, PhD, one of the world’s experts on annatto-derived compounds, explores new insights into the biochemistry of Ubiquinol, Geranylgeraniol, and the ways in which the combination of these two compounds represent paradigm shift in the way we view CoQ10 and cellular energetics.

Dr. Barrie Tan earned his PhD in Chemistry/Biochemistry from the University of Otago, New Zealand and spent several years as a professor at UMass. Credited with discovering a form of vitamin E called tocotrienol in three major sources – Palm, Rice, and Annatto, Dr. Tan was dubbed the “Tocotrienol King” by cardiologist Stephen Sinatra, MD.

Dr. Tan is currently the President of American River Nutrition, a natural health R&D company he started with his wife, Elizabeth, in 1998. His research focuses on lipid-soluble nutrients that reduce and slow chronic conditions.
