While proteins such as whey are naturally high in BCAAs, it is not the most effective strategy for muscle growth or fat loss. Other reports found that the proteins involved in muscle catabolism ( muscle breakdown caused by exercise ) seemed to be suppressed after BCAA supplementation.
Foods with a high BCAA content, such as whey protein, have been shown to produce higher muscle gains with resistance training.
The combination of BCAAs and resistance exercises results in maximum protein synthesis, because they both trigger what is called the mtorc1 signal path necessary for muscle building.
In addition, since bcaa triggers protein synthesis even in the absence of movement, maintaining lean muscle tissue can maintain metabolism and help prevent fat gain when it is inactive.
People with low protein intake may take BCAA supplements to promote muscle protein synthesis and increase muscle growth.
Amino acids are the cornerstones of protein and can be used to prevent fatigue from beginners. Valine is the essential amino acid anathorn for muscle metabolism, tissue repair and proper balance of nitrogen in the body.
In order to maximize your effor and recovery after training for good results, the answer is essential amino acids.
The use of BCAA supplements may prevent protein degradation in some populations where muscle is lost. It is more advantageous to obtain BCAA from complete protein sources because they contain all the essential amino acids.
Hmb, a leucine derivative, prevents muscle damage and increases muscle strength by reducing proteolysis caused by exercises in the muscles and also helps to increase lean body mass.
In a study, female athletes who supplement the arginine had a significant reduction in body fat percentage and an equally significant increase in lean mass, presented at the 2008 Annual Meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine.
Leucine, which is one of the three b. c. ( together with isoleucine and valine ), is particularly responsible for the development of muscle protein synthesis, a process by which muscle tissue is formed.
In addition to maintaining the existing muscle tissue, BCAAs are unique among the amino ones because they can serve as muscle fuel.
Effect of creatine and beta - alanine supplementation on performance and endocrine reactions in athletes.
Bcaas should also be used as a supplement during any fat loss plan because of the muscle retention effect.
In recent years, BCAAs, in particular leucine, have been found to send signals to the body, informing it of muscle building.
Recent studies have shown that oral lucine activates the mtor, which activates protein synthesis ( muscle growth ) and increases the ability of a cell to produce new proteins ( muscle tissue ).
It is also important to note that, although BCAAs can be used to signal muscle growth, there must be a whole spectrum of amino acids as a basis for muscle growth.
New and exciting research continues to be carried out on BCAAs and their applications for muscle growth, fat loss and performance.
While BCAAs have proven to be beneficial as a muscle tissue building block, their benefits as a signal molecules are only understood.

As part of the Fat Freeze Singapore Review, we will be reviewing the WellaFreeze Fat Freeze treatment at Wellaholic. For this review, we are happy to have Rany, a beautiful model cum influencer.
Wellaholic’s WellaFreeze™ or cryolipolysis helps target the stubborn fat areas of your body, such as the waist, arms and back. By using the latest breakthrough in science, and approved by FDA in 2011, the fat cells are “dissolved” by non-surgical means. This helps customers who have unwanted fat in targeted areas. While it is not a one-stop-shop for major fat loss, it is ideal for spot reduction for a specific area.
The staff on duty to service Rany for her WellaFreeze treatment was Rachel. Rachel is our freelance staff who is stationed at Orchard Outlet.
The first step of the treatment is the consultation. Consultation for WellaFreeze is important as the customer might be doing fat freeze for the first time. Rachel briefed Rany on the science behind WellaFreeze Fat Freeze and how it works. What WellaFreeze Fat Freeze does is to freeze the fat cells are sub-zero temperatures, and after the treatment the body will naturally purge the frozen (and dead) fat cells. By explaning the science as well as the Fat Freeze procedure to Rany, she is able to better understand how the process will be carried out.
A key aspect of the Fat Freeze or Cryolipolysis treatment is the preparation. Here, Rany's pulse rate, and blood oxygen level is being measured to ensure that she's suitable for the Fat Freeze treatment. The area to be treated is being measured using a physical caliper to gauge the thickness of the skin to be treatment. There is no pain or discomfort throughout this stage.
Rany is looking to Fat Freeze her arms. To be honest, Rany is a svelte and slender lady who's both graceful and beautiful. Nevertheless, Rany felt that WellaFreeze would help remove excess fat from her upper arms. After measurement with the calipers, an anti-freeze membrane is applied to the skin, and an additional protective layer of cling wrap is added to secure the membrane and also to keep the membrance to the skin. This is important as the anti-freeze prevents the skin from getting frost-bitten.
In order to have excellent Fat Freeze results, it is important to choose the right probe size. At Wellaholic, there are 4 kinds of probe sizes, meant for different parts of the body. Here, an appropriate probe size is chosen and then secured (by suction) to the part to be treated. The blue light shows that the freezing has already commenced successfully.
The WellaFreeze machine is able to automatically adjust the pressure and temperature based on the treated area to ensure that the best fat freeze treatment can take place. The process usually takes between 45 to 65 minutes.
Rany was happy with the results, and in fact came by for another few sessions. The sessions need to be spaced 30 days apart (for the specific body part).
What sets Wellaholic's WellaFreeze Fat Freeze apart from other providers are the following:
9 INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT WELLAFREEZE FAT FREEZE OR CRYOLIPOLYSIS1. FAT FREEZE IS CRYOLIPOLYSIS
Fat Freeze is technically known as Cryolipolysis, which means cooling down fat cells down to a temperature initiating the apoptosis process. In short, Fat Freeze kills and disposes the fat cells targeted.
2. OUR BODY CLEARS THE FROZEN FAT CELLS EFFECTIVELY
Our body is really good at making sure we don’t have cells we no longer need left around and breaks them down after they have been frozen during treatment.
3. WE REALLY DO PEE AWAY THE FAT CELLS!
Peeing, pooping, sweating and breathing is all part of the natural process of ridding ourselves of waste. The fat cells that are killed by the treatment is disposed through the lymphatic system.
4. THE TREATED AREA MAY FEEL LIKE A CHILLED CHICKEN THIGH
Immediately after treatment, the areas will of course feel colder but it rarely freeze solid. The skin will be pink for a while, but this will last for between 30 to 60 minutes after.
5. RESULTS ARE NOT INSTANT AND YOU WILL NEED TO BE PATIENT
As the body takes time to naturally dispose the dead fat cells, you will take between 30 days to 90 days to see the full extend of the treatment.
6. WELLAFREEZE IS NOT JUST FOR THE BELLY
While the belly or stomach is the most popular treatment area, other areas such as the hips, inner thighs, lower back, upper arms or even chin can be treated.
7. WELLAFREEZE CAN ALSO TREAT MAN BOOPS OR GYNECOMASTIA
WellaFreeze can also be used effectively to treat male chest reduction or Gynecomastia, the swelling of beast tissue in males.
8. SIDE EFFECTS ARE VERY MINIMAL OR NON-EXISTENT
Side effects are very minimal and only include pinkness that lasts up to an hour after the treatment. There is also no down-time.
9. YOU CAN DO TWO BODY PARTS CONCURRENTLY
At Wellaholic, our machines allow you two concurrent sessions at one go, thereby saving you time for treatments.

As we approach the year end festivities, there is a tendency for us to drink more. We are often told that too much alcohol is bad for us, but do you really know why? Have you ever wondered how alcohol affects your liver when sipping your favorite cocktail or schooner of beer? Here’s a quick rundown:
Your liver is a robust organ and can usually cope with drinking a small amount of alcohol. However the liver can only handle a certain amount of alcohol at any given time, so if you drink more than the liver can deal with by drinking too quickly, or drinking too much, your liver cells struggle to process it.
When alcohol reaches the liver, it produces a toxic enzyme called acetaldehyde which can damage liver cells and cause permanent scarring, as well as harm to the brain and stomach lining.
Now, here are seven ways to look after your liver:
1. Have a Balanced Diet
It’s also important to watch what you eat. “While nearly every cell in the body is able to metabolise glucose, only the liver cells can handle fructose,” says Dr Sherwood of the Functional Medicine Institute in Tulsa, Oklahoma. “If we consume too much fructose over time, the liver can become overwhelmed and suffer irreparable damage.” Limit foods that are high in refined sugars and high-fructose corn syrup, such as soft drinks, baked goods and sweets. Stick to natural sources of sugar (fruit for example) instead.
2. Maintain a Healthy Weight
Alcohol is not the only thing that can cause fatty liver disease – obesity (or even just being overweight) puts you at risk of developing non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).
People who have NAFLD are at an increased risk of suffering from cardiovascular problems; they also typically have diabetes and high cholesterol. During the early stages of NAFLD, the condition can be managed by losing weight, drastically reducing fat intake and exercising regularly.
3. Exercise Regularly
Regular exercising helps your body burn triglycerides for fuel, which can help reduce liver fat. Following an exercise programme that includes both aerobic exercises (walking, cycling or swimming) and weight training can improve your liver function.
Aerobic exercise helps strengthen your heart muscle, which means it can pump blood more efficiently throughout your body. When this happens, your pulse slows and blood flow improves – it’s easier for your heart to move blood to your liver, and then for your liver to send the filtered blood back into your system.
Building lean muscle mass delays severe muscle wasting, which occurs during the advanced stages of liver disease. Weight training also prevents a build-up of excess body fat, which can cause fatty liver and result in a non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases says that although NASH initially presents with only a few symptoms, it can cause your liver to become non-functional.
4. Stay Hydrated and Drink Lots of Water
Your body needs to remain hydrated. Toxins that affect your kidneys, liver and bowel function will build up when you become dehydrated.
According to Dr Neil-Sherwood, “Dehydration can have a direct effect on our liver’s ability to properly detoxify our body. So as the liver loses hydration, it also loses its organ reserve, or what it uses to take care of the rest of the body.”
Water also helps maintain the fluid content of your blood. When you become dehydrated, your blood becomes thicker – your liver is responsible for filtering blood and the thickness can impact its ability to detoxify.
5. Cut Down on Processed Foods
Manufacturers like to cram in lots of sodium, sugar, and chemicals to “improve” taste and appearance, extend shelf-life, and maximize profits.
Unfortunately, our liver gets the task of filtering through all the junk we eat and too much processed food can really take a toll on its functionality.
One particularly pesky ingredient that’s practically ubiquitous in processed foods is high fructose corn syrup. This refined sugar is made up of about 55 percent fructose and 45 percent glucose.
When we consume high fructose corn syrup, the liver uses it to create fat, which slowly accumulates in the liver cells and can lead to liver disease.
6. Cut Down or Limit on Alcohol Consumption
Consuming excessive amounts of alcohol can cause damage to your liver cells. Over time, liver damage can cause a build-up of fat in your liver, inflammation or swelling and/or scarring (cirrhosis). If you already have liver disease, even a small amount of alcohol can worsen your condition.
How much is a moderate amount of alcohol? According to a previous Health24 article, women should limit their consumption to one drink per day, while men should only have two. One drink is equal to 148ml of wine, a 355ml beer or one shot (44ml) of an 80-proof liquor.
7. Consider Liver Supplementation
Milk thistle has been used to treat liver disorders for more than 2,000 years. It’s the herbal ingredient most often used for liver complaints in the United States.
The active substance in milk thistle is silymarin, which is made up of several natural plant chemicals.
Lab studies suggest that silymarin helps regenerate liver tissue, bring down inflammation, and protect liver cells from damage by acting as an antioxidant. A 2017 analysis of studies found that silymarin slightly reduced certain liver enzymes, markers of liver damage, in people with liver disease. More research is still needed to know how well milk thistle might work.
Wellaholic's Liver Support helps boost and support liver function. Milk thistle, is a natural herb that has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and is commonly used to detoxify the body, especially the liver, as well as help liver diseases and gallbladder problems.
Suggested Use: One tablet, taken once daily preferably with meals.
There was a young man who had ambitions to work for a company because it paid very well and was very prestigious. He prepared his résumé and had several interviews. Eventually, he was given an entry-level position. Then he turned his ambition to his next goal—a supervisor position that would afford him even greater prestige and more pay. So he completed the tasks he was given. He came in early some mornings and stayed late so the boss would see him putting in long hours.
After five years a supervisor position became available. But, to the young man’s great dismay, another employee, who had only worked for the company for six months, was given the promotion. The young man was very angry, and he went to his boss and demanded an explanation.
The wise boss said, “Before I answer your questions, would you do a favor for me?”
“Yes, sure,” said the employee.
“Would you go to the store and buy some oranges? My wife needs them.”
The young man agreed and went to the store. When he returned, the boss asked, “What kind of oranges did you buy?”
“I don’t know,” the young man answered. “You just said to buy oranges, and these are oranges. Here they are.”
“How much did they cost?” the boss asked.
“Well, I’m not sure,” was the reply. “You gave me $30. Here is your receipt, and here is your change.”
“Thank you,” said the boss. “Now, please have a seat and pay careful attention.”
Then the boss called in the employee who had received the promotion and asked him to do the same job. He readily agreed and went to the store.
When he returned, the boss asked, “What kind of oranges did you buy?”
“Well,” he replied, “the store had many varieties—there were navel oranges, Valencia oranges, blood oranges, tangerines, and many others, and I didn’t know which kind to buy. But I remembered you said your wife needed the oranges, so I called her. She said she was having a party and that she was going to make orange juice. So I asked the grocer which of all these oranges would make the best orange juice. He said the Valencia orange was full of very sweet juice, so that’s what I bought. I dropped them by your home on my way back to the office. Your wife was very pleased.”
“How much did they cost?” the boss asked.
“Well, that was another problem. I didn’t know how many to buy, so I once again called your wife and asked her how many guests she was expecting. She said 20. I asked the grocer how many oranges would be needed to make juice for 20 people, and it was a lot. So, I asked the grocer if he could give me a quantity discount, and he did! These oranges normally cost 75 cents each, but I paid only 50 cents. Here is your change and the receipt.”
The boss smiled and said, “Thank you; you may go.”
He looked over at the young man who had been watching. The young man stood up, slumped his shoulders and said, “I see what you mean,” as he walked dejectedly out of the office.
If you are taken away only by the Gold-rush train of Bitcoin and its recent skyrocketing surge with new all-time highs every week you might be missing a lot what is happening around.
Ripple (XRP) a cryptocurrency with a centralized enterprise behind the curtains supporting its development and controlling where the token should be led just has experienced a very major climb upwards against the US Dollar – with a market cap of around $8.66 billion and a price (at the time of the writing) $0.2259.
In a trading and investing market – especially cryptocurrency, nowadays it is very difficult to pin-point down the reasons which conclude with this sort of spike, for example Ripple. For future references and help in investing-decision making purposes, down here we will try to explain this particular case.
What played the Role of the Pull-Up Lever for XRP/USD
Just before that, to have a quick heads up – Ripple while working together with financial services, banks and institutions wants to take down SWIFT (entity with a monopoly on border transfers) and disrupt its functionality. According to Thomas – Money should be fast sent and received like data and information now on a global scale.
(To trade cryptocurrency like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple or Litecoin, try eToro.)
So for the reasons why the catapult took place:
With the planned Blockchain improvements like Lightning Network for Litecoin, Ripple negotiations and so on, many investors are moving and diversifying their portfolio from the digital currency leader Bitcoin. More than ever now because of the potential upcoming fork happening in November. As for now and the longer term, Ripple is looking more promising than ever to be a choice for the future and a more reliable positioning for traders.
Just today, Ethereum is swinging wildy again, reaching to highs of USD 345 before retreating to the $328 range. (at the present moment). With its high fluctuations, how can we make money with Ethereum?
Ethereum has grown from a paltry price of $10 to the current $345 within a short period of time. There are several factors behind this price hike. One of the main reasons was Ethereum has been marketed to various potential corporate and government partners are a way of generating revenue through its integration of blockchain technology. Some highly publicized partnership are JPMorgan Chase, Cisco Systems, Inc, Bank of New York Mellon Corp, Microsoft, and other 30 big brands to create a partnership known as the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (EEA).
In order to trade Ethereum, you need to know the various phases of Ethereum planned growth.
Option A: You could Buy and Sell
There are several reasons you should consider buying Ethereum for long-term investments.The technology that underlies Ethereum means that it can be used for a number of other purposes that will be built off of a decentralized and autonomous system. Simply put, it potentially will be a revolutionary technology with the potential to impact a whole spectrum of industries. As the demand for the Ethereum platform and its smart contracts enabled network increases, the value of Ethereum as a cryptocurrency will continue to surge.
Stability – Ethereum had an organic growth, without massive spikes, and it seems to be stable, if not even predictable. The increasing demand and value of a certain cryptocurrency serve as an indicator of its potential. Whatever the reason is, it still increases the demand – meaning a further increase in Ethereum price.
You can choose to buy Ethereum, or if you prefer to have more liquidity, you can opt to trade in Ethereum. I personally prefer eToro as it was an intuitive interface and allows several other cryptocurrencies to be traded as well, as such Bitcoin, Ripple, Litecoin, etc.
You can sign up for an eToro account at http://bit.ly/etoro-ethereum
Option B: You can mine Ethereum
Bitcoin mining started out with simple CPU and GPU mining that can be done on high-powered home computers before the introduction of ASIC miners overwhelmed the industry resulting in only specialized hardware being capable of any worthwhile mining. The Ethereum blockchain, however, is far more resistant to ASIC miners which result in most of the processing being done on rigs mounted with GPUs.
If you have a high-powered system for gaming then your computer is more than capable of mining Ether at a respectable rate. You can choose to mine Ethereum solo but you’ll probably get better results by contributing your resources to a pool. Personally, I have never mined any myself but I have a good read on Nanopool and they’re easy to use. Thanks to their great help page.
In my opinion, Ether could be at a high price but still not profitable to mine because your electricity costs are so high, or visa Versa. You also have to account for the difficulty increase associated with a price spike.
In any case, we should be seeing Ethereum go up, up and up! Don't wait too long!
Note: I'm sharing this as I've been deep-diving into cryptocurrency and blockchain as my own self-learning and perhaps future investment?
Bitcoin mining gets more difficult over time, and so it now takes more electricity and money to mine for the cryptocurrency than ever before.
The rise of ether, another cryptocurrency, and the appreciation of bitcoin could help maintain the profitability of bitcoin mining, despite increasing costs and difficulty.
It's getting more difficult to mine bitcoins, but that doesn't mean miners are packing up their servers en masse and seeking greener pastures.
The number of bitcoins available for mining has decreased from 50 BTC per bitcoin "block" when the cryptocurrency first came onto the scene to 12.5 BTC per block, according to Autonomous NEXT, a financial technology analytics service. It is set to decrease to 6 BTC on June 19 2020, according to bitcoinblockhalf.com, a bitcoin countdown site.
Bitcoin mining is the process by which bitcoin "blocks" are unlocked. Miners are rewarded with blocks when they successfully solve complex algorithmic math problems using computer software. In order to control the supply of bitcoin, its underpinning technology was designed so that those math problems would get more difficult.
In the early days of the technology, people with a few computers were able to mine hundreds of coins in three to four days. That's not what the landscape looks like today, according to Sebastian Quinn-Watson, a consultant with Blockchain Global, a bitcoin mining firm.
"Today, about 1,700 bitcoins are generated a day," he said. "Basically, we are all fighting over one coin every 10 minutes."
"Since mining has become so much more difficult, it requires more electricity, and as a result, more money," Quinn-Watson said. His firm halted expansion of its Chinese bitcoin mining facilities eight months ago.
But Quinn-Watson thinks two factors could make up for a spike in cost and difficulty and sustain bitcoin miners moving forward.
"Ironically, the rise of ether is one trend that could help bitcoin miners," he said.
Ether, the bitcoin rival, which is powered by Ethereum blockchain, is up over 2,000% since last year. Up until June, the cryptocurrency was on track to surpass bitcoin as the world's largest cryptocurrency by market cap, according to Coindesk, but its share of the market has since pulled back.
"Many miners without the wherewithal to compete may completely shift over to mining ether tokens," Quinn-Watson said."Less participants means better economies of scale for firms that stay in."
Miners could also benefit from future appreciation in bitcoin's price, according to Quinn-Watson. If bitcoin's appreciation were to outpace the rise in the cost of mining, then the profitability of the business would be unaffected.
To be sure, bitcoin is up about 250% since last year, but it has recently experienced extreme swings in its price. Some miners have attributed this volatility to an ongoing civil war between crypto-power brokers over the future structure of the cryptocurrency.
This, however, doesn't bother Quinn-Watson. He told Business Insider volatility is exciting.
"It will make the system stronger and drive more growth," he said. "So we welcome the uncertainty and see this as necessary aftershock of the Cambrian explosion that is Blockchain."
IrHence, I started to explore avenues where I could possible mine some cryptocoins. I then chanced upon Minergate.
MinerGate is your gateway to mining CryptoCurrencies easily, quickly and with no hassle - you don't need to be an expert programmer - MinerGate will guide you through the process. Mining is an important part of any cryptocurrency’s ecosystem, it allows the maintenance of the network and it’s also a good way to use your computer to make money, but not everyone gets along with a command line terminal and not everyone can afford a powerful graphics card, so today we’re going to show you how to mine Ethereum and other Cryptocurrencies – the easy way!
No “Matrix” terminals, no complicated commands and parameters to set! All you need is a computer and an internet connection, MinerGate will do the rest for you, even if you don’t have a GPU!
MinerGate is a GUI miner (GUI just means it looks pretty) with its own incorporated multipool, and even though it’s an extremely intuitive tool, MinerGate’s cutting edge smart algorithm is always working in the background to make sure you’re getting the most out of your hardware.
MinerGate’s Variable Difficulty algorithm, allows small portions of the Ethereum Blocks to be sent to miners according to their equipment and effective hashrate, making Ethereum mining possible in any computer with a simple click of a mouse!
You might want try Minergate. It's free and while it won't promise you a fortune, at least you can convert your spare smartphone and laptop processing power to good use!
Or if you prefer to trade either Bitcoin or Ethereum, you might want to do so via an Etoro account instead.
I had the opportunity to attend the premier of Cirque Du Soleil's KOOZA, which would be running in the striking blue and yellow Big Top, till 20 August at the open area along Bayfront Avenue, just beside Marina Bay Sands. Having attended previous shows by Cirque Du Soleil, I know that while the production quality for their shows are always of a high standard, the individual segments for the shows could be a hit or miss.
Notwithstanding, KOOZA turned out to be amazing!! A deliberate return to Cirque Du Soleil's origins, KOOZA follows the protagonist, a simple guy with a kite, as he journeys into a magical kingdom after he opens a magical box. KOOZA is inspired by the Sanskrit word "Koza" which means "box" or "chest", and emerging from this box is an international cast of acrobats, musicians, singers and actors.
What made KOOZA special, in my opinion, was that various acts and segments were fresh and interesting. The tightrope segment, for example, was executed differently and with no safety harnesses for the acrobats, it was freaking nail-biting scary!
Accompanying the various acts was a strong and stellar music ensemble and two power singers. Having recorded music and live music made all the difference, and for many occasions I felt that I was watching a musical, where the story flowed seamlessly from one chapter to another.
Interspersed between the acts were several entertaining comedy moments, brought about by the unassuming funny King and his two humping assistants. They broke the tensed acrobatic parts skillfully with genuinely funny antics, and the crowd, including myself lapped it all up.
All in all, KOOZA was pure 150 minutes of pure fun, fear and entertainment. If you have time, do make a date with KOOZA before 20 August. There is a 15% discount for M1 customers, and DBS and POSB card holders also save 15% on A, B, C and D Reserve tickets for shows from 13 to 23 July and from 14 to 20 August. Enjoy!
