Why I’m glad I started supplementing my amino acids
I’d been hearing about amino acids for a while, mainly in the context of athletic performance. I’m not a triathlete or marathon runner, so I didn’t think they held any value for me. Boy was I wrong.

When it comes to taking vitamins and minerals to improve or maintain your health, most doctors will tell you not to worry about them. But there’s a good argument that shortages of vitamins and minerals are not only very real and widespread but that by skimping by with inadequate amounts, we’re cheating ourselves of valuable “longevity vitamins” critical to long-term maintenance.
What you should know about the new COVID-19 variants
We’ve given up a lot over the past year. Is all of that behind us now as we seem to be turning the corner in the battle against the virus? Like me, and many of the people around me, you may have questions, especially about the new variants and what they may mean for us.
How I’m beating the migraine trigger I didn’t know I had
Light is connected to migraine in more ways than one. Anyone who suffers from them knows that during an attack light is like salt on a wound. Light hurts and makes a migraine worse. But light can also be a trigger. When I changed the light in my life, I also changed how migraine affected my life.

Type 2 diabetes is considered one of the most preventable diseases. That doesn’t mean it’s easy to do so.
