What Are The Differences Between Fatty Acids And Glycerol
Different supplement: Omega 3 fatty acids are a type of "good" fat that is found in fatty fish e.g., salmon, etc. Coenzyme q10 is a supplement that is thought to help with muscle pain and/or weakness, especially in people on statin drugs like lipitor, (atorvastatin) zocor, etc. Since those drugs block the coq10 pathway and sometimes have muscle pains as a side effect. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The structure: The difference is where the unsaturated chemical bond is in the "tail" of the fatty acid -- 3 positions away from the end (that's where OMEGA comes from -- last letter in the greek alphabet) or 6 positions away. The reason this matters is that biochemically, omega-3 fatty acids get turned into anti-inflammatory signaling compounds, while omega-6 fatty acids may get turned into proinflammatory ones ...Read more
Multiple treat: Gastro esophageal reflux disease = gerd. This is generally synonymous with "acid reflux" or "heart burn". If you take "acid blockers", you decrease/eliminate stomach acid, however, that does not stop reflux into esophagus. It just decreases and/or eliminates the acidic content of material that refluxes into the esophagus. Hopefully, alleviating symptoms of reflux. ...Read more
The branding...: These 2 compounds are basically similar; and some even come in the same formulation/powder; so you can make shakes from it to enhance your workouts. Companies like twin-labs; now foods, etc. All have their own...And my sage advice on questions like this is let the buyer beware! always ask your doctor before starting any new medication/supplement! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Likely fibrosis, etc: Fatty liver is an early, reversible change from drinking and/or mid to long duration obesity. If drinking is stopped/lowered, and/or obesity is corrected, this goes away. If these and other forms of insults are imposed on the liver for a long time, the changes are chronic and irreversible, with fibrisis and chronic inflammation, leading to cirrhosis of the liver, and certain death. See dr., etc. ...Read more

What is the difference between linoeic acid and conjugated linoleic acid? Is one good and one bad? Are they both Omega 6?
LA: Linoelic acid (LA) is found in safflower oil , sunflower oil, poppy seed oil. Whereas conjugated LA found most in meat and diary products. They are isomers of LA. Both of them are polyunsaturated omega 6 fatty acid. Conjugated LA are usually found in supplements, pills etc. Both may POSSIBLY help with cancers and obesity. More studies need to be done. Hope this helps. ...Read more
The yin/yang of diet: Gherlin, a peptide secreted by the fundus of the stomach, increases before meals and falls after meals; whereas leptin, produced by adipose cells, interacts with the cns, specifically neuropeptide y in the arcuate nucleus wherein it induces satiety, or a sense of fullness. Currently, intense research exists to temper obesity via a pill and diet, rather than, say, gastric bypass. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Carbon Bonds: Saturated means all single c-c bonds. Trans & cis refer to the orientation of the c-c bond after a c=c double bond converted to single. See google images. If double bonds (unsaturated) are converted to single by industrial hydrogenation lacking control: ½ cis, ½ trans; all living cells do cis-. There is no evidence saturated fats of natural origin are unhealthy. Ancel keys a fraud, peter attia not. ...Read more
Rat-bite Fever or syphilis!: Two different bacteria! Spirillum is a bacteria that usually lives in fresh water and can cause "rat bite fever." See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spirillum Spirochetes are another form of gram negative bacteria, but have a double cell membrane and include the bacteria that causes syphilis. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spirochaete ...Read more
Careful-Lots of Hype: Hydrogenated means hydrogen atoms added to break c-c double bonds (unsaturated) to single bonds, aka saturated (no room for more hydrogen). If partial, then some double carbon-carbon bonds still present. Living cells make only cis-bonds. Vast majority of c-c bonds in all fats are single. The myth that sat. Fats were bad: ancel keys 1953, has driven obesity, dm & cv ds. Study gary taubes, nusi.Org. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Cholesterol is just a component found in food and made by our livers. Some (but not all) fats are a problem and all are caloric compared with the other 2. ...Read more
Very different: Calcitonin is a hormone made by the thyroid. Human calcitonin does not do much. If your thyroid is removed, we give you back levothyroxine but we do not need to give you back calcitonin. Calcitonin is secreted by a specific kind of thyroid cancer, medulary cancer. Calcitriol is vitamin D, 1, 25, the potent one. Vitamin D helps you absorb calcium in your diet. ...Read more
