Whenever I look at zinc formulations, Zn Carnosine seems good from a gut-health + cognitive perspective. Dr's Best sells one in a modest dosage.

Re: Glucosamine: a mTOR inhibitor and autophagy activator?

What's the latest thought on Glucosamine and liver health? I've seen it pop up in a few poorly-controlled studies (but with enough frequency that I've been cautious to take the stuff myself.) "Glucosamine has been implicated in isolated case reports in causing clinically apparent liver injury&q...

Withings Body Cardio vs Gold Standards of PWV & Body Comp (J Pers Med 2020)

I bought one of the Withings Body Cardio scales when it first entered the market. It was the first of its kind, offering daily cardiovascular PWV measurements.
