Improving the Regulation of Energy Expenditure May Reduce the Risk of Cardiovascular Diseases and Avoid Pre-Mature Cellular Aging (amazon) (shopzilla)

Miami, FL (PRWEB) February 28, 2012

A newly published study suggests, in animal models, an increased activity (expression) of a regulator of metabolism, PGC-1 Alpha, may improve pre-mature cellular aging. Nutri-Med Logic Corp, agreeing with this notable study, adds that credible research and evidence has pointed to R-Alpha Lipoic, a nutrient and a vital co-enzyme in the production of energy, as a viable mean to improve the activities of this regulator.

According to this study, by Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Miami, FL, aging increases our vulnerability to muscle degeneration (Sarcopenia), as well as cardiovascular diseases and that the accumulated alteration (mutation) in mitochondrial (cellular energy plant) DNA caused its dysfunction leading to potentially shorter lifespan.

According to the University of Miami study, the increased expression of PGC-1 Alpha, a regulator of metabolism, while improved the mitochondrial function but did not reverse the accumulated mutation in mitochondrial DNA, rather it caused a small increase in its mutation. Nonetheless, the increased expression of muscle PGC-1 Alpha improved some premature aging phenotypes.

Suffices to say that increasing the function or capacity of mitochondria (biogenesis) results in the production of additional reactive oxygen species (oxidative stress) and the increased oxidative stress would be a contributing factor for the added mutation, in the abundance of mitochondria, as well as the copy number and integrity of mitochondrial DNA in human cells.

Amongst mitochondrial anti-oxidant molecules, mitochondrial glutathione not only acts as key anti-oxidant defense against reactive oxygen species but also acts as a detoxifying enzyme, counteracting a variety of free radicals such as hydrogen peroxide, lipid hydroperoxides and xenobiotics, as well as being a co-factor for enzymes glutathione peroxidase or glutathione-S-transferase. (2)

In addition and according to The Department of Internal Medicine of University of Miami, the cellular Reduction-Oxidation (redox) is regulated by three systems, two of which are also regulated by glutathione. (3)

Overwhelming number of institutes, including the prestigious Linus Pauling Institute, have determined that Lipoic Acid (also known as R-Alpha Lipoic Acid) increases the synthesis of glutathione in the human cells.

Moreover and according to USDA/ARS Childrens Nutrition Research Center, in aged animals, the metabolic action of R-Alpha Lipoic is mediated through activating a cellular energy sensor (AMPK) that can regulate PGC-1 Alpha, a metabolic regulator. (4)

The USDA/ARS study suggests that, in animal studies, R-Alpha Lipoic Acid improves skeletal muscle energy metabolism (PGC-1 Alpha).

In conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp agrees with this study and adds that R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, a nutrient and a vital co-enzyme in the production of cellular energy, offers unique health benefits such as being a potent anti-oxidant by itself, increasing the glutathione levels and most importantly improving the energy homeostasis.

    Learn “How to Avoid a Hair Transplant” from Expert Dr. Alan Bauman at the Cosmetic Surgery & Wellness Expo 2012 (amazon) (shopzilla)

    Miami, FL (PRWEB) February 22, 2012

    How early a person spots thinning hair determines how much hair they save. Those who wait until the hair loss is visible to the naked eye are too late – 50 percent is already gone.

    Nationally recognized hair restoration expert Alan J. Bauman, M.D. will be a featured presenter at the Cosmetic Surgery & Wellness Expo 2012 at the Miami Convention Center on Saturday, February 25. Dr. Baumans multimedia presentation How to Avoid a Hair Transplant will discuss safe and effective medical therapies proven to protect, enhance and restore hair growth in men and women.

    Although hair transplant technology has improved significantly in recent years, our first goal is always non-surgical intervention, said Bauman, a board-certified hair restoration surgeon who is recommended by the American Hair Loss Association. The goal of this talk is to teach prospective patients about the abundance of preventative care treatments, from low level lasers to FDA approved medications and nutritional supplements and how to better understand the hair loss process, including the importance of meeting with a board-certified hair restoration physician.

    Following the presentation, Bauman and his medical staff at Bauman Medical Group will demonstrate new technologies to treat and prevent hair loss. Several of Baumans patients will also be at the expo to share their personal experiences with hair loss and hair restoration.

    A variety of new treatments and technologies have recently become available that make hair loss prevention a real option for patients who are genetically predisposed to hair thinning, said Bauman. Although new minimally-invasive techniques in hair transplantation like Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE, is more comfortable and natural than ever, most patients want to reduce the amount of transplants required or avoid any type of surgical procedure altogether. In my presentation, I will discuss four important ways people can prevent hair loss, including the latest cutting-edge treatments and technologies that top hair restoration physicians provide.

    Here are Baumans four tips for avoiding a hair transplant:
