    Eating Reishi Mushrooms May Promote Good Cognitive Function

    Mushrooms are definitely the “in” supplement right now. These things always come in waves; it happened with protein, it happened with creatine, and now it seems that mushrooms are firmly in the spotlight. There are dozens, if not hundreds of different mushroom supplements on sale today; just a few years ago, there were none. Manufacturers claim that different mushrooms can do different things, but they all seem to cluster around a central set of benefits – improved immune system function, better CNS recovery, and enhanced mental performance. But at face value, these claims seem a little unbelievable. After all, we eat mushrooms all the time – on pizzas, with pasta,…

    How Good Is Pea Protein? – An Honest Analysis

    Whey protein has been around for some time. Decades in fact. As has casein (typically peddled as a “slow release” protein alternative to “fast-acting” whey).  Over the last couple of years, people have begun to realize that whey isn’t the uniquely beneficial protein source that supplement manufacturers have made it out to be. A by-product of cheese manufacturing, whey is indeed a very protein dense ‘food’ – if we can call it a food – but the concentration of protein in a substance is not the only thing to consider.  Amino acid profile, digestibility, overall composition, its effects on digestion and health, not to mention its effect on the environment…

    Do Testosterone Boosters Really Work?

    Natural testosterone boosters are a hot topic right now in the world of bodybuilding.  They are currently one of the fastest selling supplement categories; manufacturers are struggling to keep up with demand as their natural test boosters fly off the shelves.  However, they are also widely-admonished. Lots of people hate testosterone boosters. They are extremely vocal in their disliking too; it isn’t hard to find articles, YouTube videos, and interview segments where people have called them an outright scam.  This hasn’t been helped by the advent of prohormones. This class of substances has attracted an enormous amount of attention over the past couple of years, most of it negative. Rightly so; prohormones…

    Rice Protein Powder – Worth A Try?

    Protein, protein, protein.  People never get tired of talking about protein.  If someone has recently just started working out, we guarantee they’re talking non-stop about protein; where they get theirs, where you get yours, how much they’re eating, how it’s the most important ting for health, etc.  The truth is that protein is really not that important, even for building muscle.  The amount of protein used to create a muscle cell is not that much. Only 20% of muscle tissue is composed of muscle proteins by weight; the rest is water, polyphenols, and so on. The entire human musculoskeletal system only contains about 3-10kg of muscle, depending on your height,…
