Analysis of ascorbic acid (Chemistry Laboratory Previews)

Analysis of ascorbic acid (Chemistry Laboratory Previews)

Today we’ll be testing an ascorbic acid formulation. Our goal will be to ascertain the percentage mass of ascorbic acid in this formulation and we’ll be doing so via an acid-base titration. The base that we’re going to use in today’s experiment has yet to be standardised still will be standardising it determining the true concentration by titrating it against an acid first. Today’s experiment is also designed to reinforce…

How the cell prioritizes and targets organelles and protein aggregates for degradation by autophagy

[Rhonda]: So maybe we can kind of talk, shift a little bit into the general role that autophagy plays in some of these age-related diseases, like neurodegenerative disease, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. Talk a little bit about the microautophagy, or is that what you call it, like, when you’re talking about the specific degradation of organelles like mitochondria or protein aggregates? [Dr. Kroemer]: So normally, when we refer to autophagy,…

First topic: How to combine Ingredients the right way! Are there ones that you should never combine? Are there some that actually enhance…

Doctors Panel Ibogaine Treatment for Obesity and Eating Disorders

The most important… I… Yes, yes. The most important thing about this treatment is the way you address it as we were talking about earlier that the rabbi just came back from a quite long trip. The most important thing, which he was talking about, it’s not the diet itself but the inner changes. The internal changes that make in the brain and in the spirit. And that allows you…
