Helpful article, however, I will have to disagree with your comment about sprinting. Sprinting is a maximal effort exercise which constitutes the body’s reliance on predominantly carbohydrates and not fat. The fast catabolism of carbohydrates causes the lactic acid build up. The maximal exercise will actually not burn any fat but will boost testosterone levels. Also, the exercise can produce increased muscle mass, which can increase resting energy expenditure. Since your body burns predominantly fat at rest this can indirectly help you lose fat weight. If a person wants to become more efficient in metabolizing fat and lactic acid, they should focus on long duration (greater than 30 minutes) and low to moderate intensity exercises (~20-60% MHR)
Another top pick from Dr. Kahn, this lemon-like fruit grows on trees on one region of Southern Italy. Bergamot has been shown in a 2015 study published in the journal PharmaNutrition to improve erectile dysfunction in men who also have diabetes mellitus. According to Kahn, such findings may be the result of bergamot also supporting healthy blood sugar, blood pressure, and blood cholesterol, while also having powerful antioxidant properties known to improve endothelial function—the lining of your blood vessels and key to cardiovascular health.
