Where to Buy Genuine Water Filters Online? (2024)

To improve water that is contaminated or unpleasant to drink, water filters (such as those in refrigerators, water filter pitchers, and under the sink filters) rely on proper design, components, and assembly to perform effectively. Counterfeit water filters have been sold online and may not provide the benefits of genuine water filters. In May 2023,  U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP)  discovered and seized 3,940 counterfeit water filters bearing unauthorized National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) certification logos, a third-party certification that indicates that a product meets certain filtration standards. When tested, the counterfeit filters failed to remove lead and other chemicals from the water. According to  partial test results published  by an industry group (the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers) in 2018, many counterfeit refrigerator water filters purchased through popular websites failed to adequately remove lead and live cysts from household water, and some

A Root Cause of Mental Illness: Harvard Professor

What Causes Mental Illness? For years, this pressing question has remained unanswered. Often, patients seeking clarity encounter explanations such as “it’s genetic” or “depression is a  lack of serotonin .” Mental illness has been an enigma and point of confusion for many researchers and scientists. Despite medical advances, the root cause of mental illness has remained unknown. However, a recent breakthrough in psychiatry may be the missing piece to this mysterious puzzle. Dr. Christopher Palmer, a Harvard professor of psychiatry, has been connecting the dots of thousands of research articles  regarding the relationship  between mental illness and mitochondrial dysfunction. According to Palmer, this collective research raises concerns about the current treatments used for mental disorders. A pivotal moment in 2016 started the psychiatrist on a new path when he helped a patient with schizoaffective disorder lose weight. The patient not only suffered from severe mental illness but also

Glutamine is considered “conditionally essential” because it can be synthesized from glutamate when total protein is adequate, yet it can become depleted to dangerous levels that require supplementation during illness, injury, and surgery.   L-Glutamine for Eczema The Google search term 'l-glutamine for leaky gut', returns over 150,000 results. Similarly, the Google search term 'l-glutamine for autoimmune', shows nearly 1 million results. And, of course, 'l-glutamine for eczema', returns over 300,000 results. So, clearly, a lot is being written about l-glutamine for eczema, l-glutamine for a leaky gut, and l-glutamine for other gastrointestinal problems. L-glutamine is sometimes just called glutamine. But, what is this l-glutamine? L-glutamine is one of the 20 amino acids already in your body. A significant amount of

Crucial Facts About Your Metabolism (2023)

STORY AT-A-GLANCE Cortisol is primarily a rescue hormone. It's a glucocorticoid, so it increases your glucose level by shredding your muscle protein to produce glucose. Cortisol also accelerates the aging process and is implicated in most chronic diseases. It also uses your brain tissue to use amino acids to make glucose which contributes to brain atrophy and subsequent depression Your mitochondria can only burn one fuel at a time — either fat or glucose — and there’s a stealth switch that controls which of these fuels your mitochondria will burn. This switch is known as the Randle cycle Ideally, you want to metabolize (burn) glucose in your mitochondria, as this only generates 0.1% reactive oxygen species (ROS). This route also generates energy most efficiently, creating 36 to 38 adenosine triphosphates (ATP) for every molecule of glucose that is metabolized. For this to occur, you need to consume less than 30% of your calories as fat When you consume significantly more than 30% f
