Right now as I write this, I am watching the morning sun, sitting on a bench in Dolores Park with my shirt off an laptop out - in 50ºF weather!
Last night I had no sleep as I just traveled from FL to CA and helping my brother pack until 4am… and I woke up around 5am (8am my normal time… thanks jetlag).

Zeitgebers (the German word for “time givers”) are signals that help synchronize the body's circadian clock with the environment.

Is histamine a villain… or really a superhero?
It really depends on which receptor it works on and where it is in the body.
In this post, we will discuss how to use the 3rd histamine receptor to boost cognition, memory, and attention.
We will first discuss how the histamine receptors work.
Then, we will move onto the benefits (and downsides) of blocking Histamine H3 Receptor's (HRH3 or H3R) activity with natural and pharmacological methods.
Lastly, we will discuss the potential benefits of increasing HRH3 with some agonists, HRH3's mechanism of action, and some important HRH3 SNPs.Read More
