CHORI Bar Team
Meet some of the CHORI bar team: Dr. Bruce Ames, Dr. Joyce McCann, and Dr. Mark Shigenaga.
On this podcast we talk about the different types of HDL and LDL cholesterol and what they do in the body. We discuss a low-calorie, micronutrient- and fiber-dense nutrition bar (referred to as the CHORI bar) that Bruce and I briefly touched on in a previous conversation, how each of the components of the bar from the vitamins and minerals to the fiber and polyphenols are all really important but have separate functions in the body that can work together in much the same way an orchestra play their individual parts to create a symphony that is larger than their individual roles, how the chori bar raised a certain type of HDL in lead adults in just two weeks, how eating the CHORI bar raised HDL, lowered triglycerides and small LDL particles, and improved insulin sensitivity after eight weeks in overweight/obese individuals all without them changing their diet.
The CHORI bar is not available for consumers yet but you can keep up with choribar updates on bruceames.org/choribar.
