Protect your cardiovascular health and your joint health with one substance

Posted by on 10:47 pm Anti-aging, Brain, General Health, Memory | 0 comments

Interesting and surprising research suggests you can reduce cardiovascular risk and protect your joints
by taking the same substance.

More and more research provides evidence that oxidative stress alters many functions of the endothelium, the inner layer of the blood vessels (Cai H, Harrison DG, 2000).

Nitric oxide which opens blood vessels and improves circulation is inactivated by free radicals. This seems to occur in conditions such as hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes, and smoking.

The use of glucosamine has been associated with reduced total mortality and a significant decreased risk of death from cancer and with a large risk reduction for death from respiratory diseases (Bell GA, et.al.,
2012).

Glucosamine sulfate has for many years been used to support joint cartilage and treat osteoarthritis.

The following study is interesting because the researchers investigated if glucosamine could improve endothelial function (Katoh A, et.al., 2017).They stated that vascular endothelial function is a potent surrogate marker of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular mortality where oxidative stress could be involved.

Endothelial function was evaluated using flow mediated dilation and oxidative, antioxidant status was evaluated by measuring the ratio of glutathione to the oxidized form of glutathione.

The results showed that glucosamine administration improved endothelial function and the ratio of
glutathione to the oxidized form of glutathione.

According to this research by reducing oxidative stress, the vascular function improved.

What if you could take both glucosamine and an effective form of glutathione?

It looks like that would be even more effective.

The patented form of S-Acetyl Glutathione is an effective form of glutathione shown to enter the cell.

You may know that you need calcium, but maybe you have heard that taking calcium may cause calcification of blood vessels.

Taking calcium by itself is not a good idea. You need to take calcium in a formula that includes multiple nutrients, and it needs to include magnesium. That’s one of the reasons the BMJ contains a large amount of magnesium in a very well absorbed form.

This substance is decreased in neurodegeneration and Alzheimer’s disease.

There is especially 1 substance which is very important for the brain and the nervous system, and that is
glutathione, a very effective antioxidant as well as an immune system regulator.

Glutathione is a substance the body is producing, and it is involved in many functions throughout the body. The body is however producing less as we get older, and that’s when we need more.

In the brain glutathione also regulates cell signaling, protein function, gene expression, and cell differentiation/proliferation.

Decreased levels of glutathione and increased oxidative stress are common in major neurodegenerative diseases (Ayoama K, Nakaki T, 2013).

In the following study proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy was used to measure brain glutathione levels in healthy controls, in patients with mild cognitive decline and in patients with Alzheimer’s disease
(Mandal PK, et.al., 2015).

The researchers concluded that the present study provided compelling evidence that glutathione levels in specific brain regions is a clinically relevant biomarker for mild cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease.

It is very important to do what we can early on to help prevent memory problems and Alzheimer’s disease, as these neurological problems are getting more and more common.

Changes in the brain start to occur many years before any symptoms are noticed.

Some years ago, glutathione could only be supplied by IV because the only oral form available, reduced glutathione is not very bioavailable, and does not produce results.

That however changed when S-Acetyl Glutathione, a patented form of glutathione, became available. S-Acetyl Glutathione gets transferred into the cells where it is needed.

Improve Your Memory By Improving Brain Circulation

Resveratrol supplementation has shown to improve executive function and memory in older adults (Thaung Zaw JJ., et.al., 2017).

The benefits were due to improved cerebral perfusion, circulation in the brain.

When 80 post-menopausal women were supplementing with trans-resveratrol or a placebo for 14 weeks, the researchers found that the women taking the resveratrol had significant improvements in verbal memory and overall cognitive function (Evans HM, et.al., 2017).

The researchers also measured cerebrovascular responsiveness and found an increase of 17% in the women taking resveratrol.

The dosage producing the improvements was low.

 

Only 75 mg of resveratrol taken twice a day was required to produce the results.

Post-menopausal women are at a higher risk for memory loss because of hormonal changes.

The bioavailability of resveratrol is low. That can, however, be greatly improved by using a methylated form of resveratrol (Wen X, Walle T, 2017).

Anti-Aging Formula

Resveratrol is found in the skin of grapes, but also in other various plants. It is known as an antioxidant and got a lot of attention when a study on mice showed that resveratrol increased their lifespan spite of a high fat, high-calorie diet. Some of the changes included improved insulin sensitivity, increased number of mitochondria (the energy producing entity of the cell) and improved motor function (they moved better).

Reduce Inflammation By Adding 1 Food

Posted by on 9:52 am Anti-aging, General Health, Health Risk, Inflammation, Inflammatory factor | 0 comments

You can reduce inflammation by adding just 1 type of food to your diet.

If you also remove another food, you will get even better results.

When a group of type 2 diabetes patients replaced 2 servings of red meat with different types of legumes like lentils, chickpeas, peas and beans for only 3 days per week for 8 weeks, this was the result (Hosseinpour-Niazi S, et.al., 2015).

 

heart shape by various vegetables and fruits

The legumes resulted in significantly reduced levels of the inflammatory markers hs-CRP, IL-6 and TNF-alpha, compared to when they ingested the red meat instead of the legumes.

 

After consuming a legume diet for 6 weeks, comparing it to their regular diet, first-degree relatives of patients with diabetes had significantly reduced levels of hs-CRP (Saraf-Bank F, et.al., 2015).

Women with the highest legume intake had lower levels of hs-CRP, IL-6 and TNF-alpha compared to the ones with the lowest intake (Ezmaillzadeh A, Azakbakht L, 2012).

 

Just by adding beans or lentils to your meals, you can reduce low-grade inflammation significantly.

That is not difficult. Adding beans to a salad is easy, and if you substitute potatoes or rice with beans or lentils, you should notice a nice difference in your inflammatory markers.

Not only will you see a difference there, but most likely you will also see a reduction in cholesterol and triglyceride levels as well.

3 Important Benefits of Flax Seeds

One of the impressive health benefits of flax seeds is the ability to decrease blood pressure (Rodriguez-Leyva D, et.al., 2013).

In a double-blinded, placebo-controlled study, 30 g of flax seeds daily for 6 months reduced the systolic blood pressure of 10 mm Hg and the diastolic blood pressure with 7 mm Hg.

 This is as good as some blood pressure medications, and instead of side-effects, you get even additional benefits.

13 g of flax seeds daily has shown to decrease blood glucose and insulin and improve insulin sensitivity in obese individuals with pre-diabetes (Hutchins AM, et.al., 2013).

Flax seeds can also lower cholesterol. 

In just 7 days a drink made of flax seeds lowered total cholesterol by 12% and LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol) 15% (Kristensen M, et.al., 2012).

Even if many people are not aware of these health benefits, it’s been known for a long time that flax seeds can reduce total cholesterol, LDL and decrease the blood glucose after a meal (Cunnane SC, et.al., 1993).

 

It is very important to keep the blood glucose in a good range even after a meal, it is not enough to only have good fasting blood glucose.

I recommend grinding 2 tablespoons of flax seeds in a coffee grinder and put them in a glass with water, stir it and drink it thick. You can of course also sprinkle it on food, like a salad if you prefer.

This is how you can protect your skin.

Posted by on 9:45 am Anti-aging | 0 comments

Ultraviolet light is causing oxidative stress and that is damaging to the skin.

This also leads to the depletion of important cellular antioxidants, especially glutathione, which you may have guessed.

Glutathione is a very effective antioxidant.

Glutathione protects the liver, it’s involved in detoxification, and it also regulates the immune system.

The body is making this antioxidant, but the problem is that it is making less as we get older.

When we get into our forties, we start to make approximately 10% less each year.

The logical solution would be to take glutathione, but regular glutathione is not effective as a treatment, because it is oxidized (damaged in the stomach).

For that reason the researchers in this study used S-Acetyl Glutathione because that has been shown to effectively get into the cells.

The research showed that the S-Acetyl Glutathione increased the intra cellular glutathione level and protected against ultraviolet induced free radical damage and lipid peroxidation (Wright D, et al. 2013). 

Most of the glutathione on the market is not getting into the cells where it is needed.

To ensure that you receive the benefits of glutathione use S-Acetyl Glutathione.
