It takes 600 days to replace half the fat in your cell membranes.
Realisation : It’s going to take four years to get 75% of my cell membranes back where they should be if I had just been eating the stuff I was supposed to eat.”
We have reduced our saturated fats by 11% over the last 30 years. We have increased fruits and vegetables by 17%, and we’ve increased carbohydrates by 25% as we’ve been told. We have followed that food pyramid, eating most of our calories in that big bottom slab.

Most people have never heard of Vitamin K, but it is one of the most important nutrients for optimal heart health.
There are several forms of the vitamin. We have K1 (phylloquinone), which is found in plant foods like leafy greens. Then we have Vitamin K2 (menaquinone), which is found in animal foods.
Even though the two forms are structurally similar, they appear to have different effects on the body. While K1 is important in blood clotting, Vitamin K2 helps to keep calcium out of your arteries.
One nutrient that appears to be able to fight inflammation is called butyrate (or butyric acid). This is a 4-carbon long, short-chain saturated fatty acid.
