Aging and Your Cell Membrane

You can say that humans have a pretty odd relationship when it comes to the idea of aging. Especially in the current age of elective surgeries and injections. Fat makes up a lot of our body and is vital for every single cell. But how do fatty acids play a role when it comes to ensuring that our…


Today is a big day for BodyBio

In 1995 we embarked on a mission to create a comprehensive range of vitamins and supplements we couldn’t find anywhere else on the market. We started off with the development of a targeted blood chemistry analysis and epigenetic testing to investigate the most complex disorders in the world. To…


Who Needs Electrolytes and Why?

Many people talk about electrolytes but do you have any idea what electrolyte really is? Being among the smallest of chemicals important to a cell’s function, electrolytes are crucial to the manufacturing of energy, the maintenance of membrane stability, the movement of fluids in the body, and a…


Focus: The Cell Membrane

The membrane of the cell and the organelles are composed of two fatty acid tails facing each other. The bilipid layer is minute in comparison to its vital role as cell protector with a thickness of 3 to 4.5 nm. It would take 10,000 membranes layered on top of each other to make up the thickness of…


Dr. David Horrobin on Schizophrenia

David Horrobin MD, PhD, was one of the leading fatty acid researchers in the world. He had a life-time fascination with schizophrenia which culminated in his 2001 publication, “The Madness of Adam and Eve”. He believed that schizophrenia is a leading characteristic of mankind that makes us human.…


The Nerve of That Signal

Nerves carry signals throughout the body initiating activity in the body and brain. What has been slow to grasp is the role of the cell membrane in carrying those signals. The membrane is the covering and protection of our nerves. It also houses (embraces) the electrolyte enzymes in its thin…


The 4:1 Fatty Acid Ratio and the Brain

Delving into the subject of the Brain and Essential Fats is a difficult journey, primarily because of how important the topic is and how little we know about how we think. There are 100 billion neurons sitting on top of our shoulders with ~60% of that nerve material made up of fats, saturated and…


Fat Facts: Omega 3 and Omega 6 Fatty Acids

Omega-3 fatty acids —EPA and DHA— are the BIG news in nutritional m medicine today — and for some very good reasons. The scientific evidence is now irrefutable that EPA and DHA are essential for good health and long life. They are such important nutrients that agencies and institutions…


PC: The Fountain of Health

Phosphatidylcholine is a wunderbar nutrient – yet, it remains an enigma. At 6 syllables it’s a bit of a tongue twister, easier to say PC. In Europe, it’s even longer, Polyenylphosphatidylcholine, 10 syllables, which abbreviates to PPC. Both mean exactly the same. Both refer to the same wonder…


The Unusual Development of E-Lyte Balanced Electrolyte

The formulation of E-Lyte Balanced Electrolyte began 25 years ago for the purpose of creating a drinking version of Ringer’s Solution. In effect, a diluted solution of E-Lyte (normally 16:1) could be used as an oral replacement in stressful health situations if IV Ringer’s was not…
