    Dr. Nicole Avena on Fertility and Nutrition

    Fertility rates have been dropping due to environmental toxicities, higher incidence of obesity and metabolic dysfunction, and couples waiting until later ages to conceive.

Dr. Nicole Avena is a PhD researcher who is widely published on the health effects of nutrition. Her most recent book "What to Eat When You Want to Get Pregnant," outlines the latest research on how nutrition can improve fertility and which foods might actually be hindering couples looking to conceive.

    Food Additives - Hidden in Plain Sight

    Food Additives - Hidden in Plain Sight

    Food labels can be very confusing. In fact, many of us completely ignore them. If you look at the ingredients in many processed foods, you’ve probably tried to pronounce some of the chemical compounds listed in the ingredients. The food industry adds chemicals to food to either enhance flavor and color, or to preserve shelf life. There are thousands of accepted food additives and some may have important health implications.

    In today’s episode, we discuss just a few additives you might want to keep an eye out for next time you go to the grocery store.

    Today on The Lab Report:
    3:20 MSG – monosodium glutamate
    6:40 Nitrites and nitrates
    9:55 The “Name that Food” game
    12:45 Sulfites are everywhere
    13:55 Maraschino cherries are polarizing?
    15:20 Sulfites as a top food allergen
    16:55 Food colorings, FD&C, lakes, and blue rats
    21:25 Artificial vs. natural flavoring

    Patti & Michael On The Benefits of Bone Broth

    Patti & Michael On The Benefits of Bone Broth

    Animal protein from meat is an important part of a healthy diet. But many of us overlook further using the animal bones to provide additional healing properties. Simmering animal bones over an extended amount of time helps extract minerals, collagen, and other important nutrients into a broth. Bone broth can then be used as stock for other soups or ingested itself to improve health.

    Listen in as we discuss the many health benefits of bone broth and why you should consider adding it to your diet – oh yeah, we also demonstrate how to make it – kind of.

    Today on The Lab Report:
    2:40 What is bone broth?
    5:00 Collagen, glucosamine, chondroitin, and minerals
    7:00 Gut healing properties
    8:35 Detoxification support
    10:00 Amino acids  
    10:50 Kitchen Cook-cophany!
    19:10 How might bone broth effect Genova test results?

    Catecholamines, Stress, and the Reward System

    Catecholamines, Stress, and the Reward System

    Neurotransmitters act as chemical signals from our nerve endings to various target cells found in muscles, glands, and other neurons. Although there are many types of neurotransmitters, today we will focus on the catecholamines - epinephrine, norepinephrine, and dopamine. Anyone who has ongoing stress or is an ‘adrenaline junkie’ can attest to the physical effects of the catecholamines. But did you know that they also play a role in our brain’s reward system to make us happy and feel good?

    Listen in as we discuss the importance of catecholamines, their downstream metabolites, and why we measure them.

    Today on The Lab Report:
    2:10 What is a neurotransmitter?
    3:25 Introduction to catecholamines
    6:00 Dopamine and the reward system
    8:20 Epinephrine, norepinephrine, and the stress response
    11:30 Neurotransmitter breakdown and downstream metabolites
    16:50 Question of the Day

    How does caffeine affect catecholamines?
