Dietary Inflammation Tied to Muscle Aging

Cost per polyphenol concentration is more appropriate than cost per tablespoon.
Super high polyphenol level might cost a lot but one doesn’t have to consume anywhere near as much to get the same benefit.

I think Boswellia caps (I’ve also bought from AMZN,) is same as Frankincense.

So, eat more grapes?

Grapes are just little bags of sugar …

A spoonful of sugar helps the polyphenols go down.

If the research show that grape polyphenols reduce inflammation and sarcopenia, that’s all the reason I need to eat these delicious little bags of sugar.

Especially when you coat them in water and freeze them. Nothing better on a hot summer day…

Yeh, I don’t know about the whole issue of the tradeoffs of the nutritional benefits of grapes, vs. the downside of the blood glucose spikes caused by the grapes. If you’re on metformin, SGLT2 inhibitors (cangliflozin) or perhaps acarbose, maybe the issue goes away … Its very hard to parse all the data, given the imperfect world of nutritional research studies.

There doesn’t seem to be a test for "fake"ness. They tested for the key variables that define the quality. Haven’t read the full article, but I didn’t see any “fake” judgements.

Amphoranueva.com has a great selection of olive oils, and they list the chemistry for each one. Here’s their EVOO with a biophenol content of 970 PPM: https://amphoranueva.com/marin/product/organic-tunisian-chetoui/

And here’s a paper with a counterpoint to high polyphenolic content olive oils:
Olive oil with high polyphenolic content induces both beneficial and harmful alterations on rat redox status depending on the tissue.pdf (2.4 MB)

There are 3 macronutrients, 2 of which are essential and the third literally rots the teeth out of your mouth…

Checked it out. It’s excellent if you are in CA. If not, the shipping cost is higher than EVOO. Is it possible to find something similar on Amazon?

Amazon has Tunisian EVOO - Terra Delyssa and Kevala brands. It also carries Moroccan EVOO, favored by Dr. Gundry. He even markets his own brand.

I think long established that inflammation involved in all degenerative disease. The CRP is a marker, but does not say anything about causes.
