Kings College London Research Has Found an Association Between Diet and Depression / Anxiety in Elderly, Says Nutri-Med Logic Corp. (amazon) (shopzilla)

Miami, Florida (PRWEB) November 29, 2011

Nutri-Med Logic Corp: This newly published study by King’s College London establishes a more conclusive role for Essential Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids in Depression and Anxiety Disorders, from young to old.

The study by the Kings College London states Plasma linoleic acid (Omega-6) levels were found to have a negative linear relationship with depressive symptoms. (Negative association denotes factors that lead to various forms of mental disorder.)

The study, which included 130 participants, aged 60 to 86 years of age, from outpatient psychiatric services of four hospitals, concluded that the higher levels of Omega-6 are associated with higher residual Depression and Anxiety.

The results of another recent study by National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) suggested that a daily diet of Omega3 fatty acids should be incorporated for the young and healthy individuals, since it has reduced their symptoms of anxiety.

According to the NCCAM study, a 12 week, double-blind study that included 68 healthy young medical students (38 men, 30 women), not only suggested that omega3 fatty acids reduced the symptoms of Anxiety, and consistent with the previous studies of NCCAM, Omega-3 diet was suggested for reducing depressive symptoms in “clinically” depressed young subjects.

Moreover, another recent study by National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism of National Institutes of Health and Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHA) recommended that 2 grams of omega-3 fatty acids per day to reduce depression and anxiety scores among active service members with recurrent self-harm tendency.

Omega-3 and Omega-6 are classified as Essential Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids, both of which are only obtained through diet and they form an important part of all cellular membranes. Human body is incapable of producing either Omega-3 or Omega-6 and thus depends on the diet for their supply.

Omega-6 is found in most food but Omega-3 can only be attained from leafy green vegetables and cold-water fishes. Due to its scarcity in the diet, the deficiency of Omega-3 is substituted with readily available Omega-6, which explains the association between the higher residual depression / anxiety and the higher levels of Omega-6, as suggested by the King’s College study.

The higher levels of Omega-6 can only be reduced through higher dietary intake of Omega-3.

Higher intake of Omega-3, not only would reduce the high levels of Omega-6, determined to be the key focus of elderly depression and anxiety in the Kings College London study, but consistent with the various recent studies of NIH, higher intake of Omega-3 reduces the anxiety symptoms for the younger population.

In conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp ( agrees with the study published by The Kings College London but adds that higher levels of Omega-6 can only denote deficiency of Omega-3 in the diet. Nutri-Med Logic Corp, also, adds, that higher intake of Omega-3 not only would reduce the higher levels of Omega-6, beneficial for the elderly with Depression and Anxiety, but also beneficial for the young suffering from Anxiety Disorder due to stress.

    Newly Published Study Finds Important Association Between Oxidative Stress, Microvascular Aging and Healing (amazon) (shopzilla)

    Miami, Florida (PRWEB) February 06, 2012

    A new study, investigating the premature aging and improper healing of the blood vessels, has found that the dysfunction of a cellular factor (Nrf2) to be an underlying cause of the impaired blood vessel formation (angiogenesis) and its subsequent improper healing and premature aging. Expanding on this study, Nutri-Med Logic Corp states that a key target for activation of Nrf2 is to increase the production of an internal anti-oxidant, Glutathione, colloquially referred to as anti-aging anti-oxidant, which decreases by age.

    Prior to this new study, the most notable study in premature cellular aging was done by Dr. Farzaneh-Far of San Francisco General Hospital, published in Journal of American Medical Association, where Dr. Farzaneh-Far found an association between the consumption of anti-inflammatory nutrients (Omega-3) and the extreme ends of the DNA (telomeres), as an indicator of pre-mature cellular aging. Accordingly, inflammation was and continue to be presumed as a key culpable element in normal or premature cellular aging.

    However, while inflammation exerts itself as a cause but, more often than not, the inflammation could only be the symptom. Thus, distinction has to be made as to whether the cellular premature aging is due to the inflammation, per se, or that the inflammation is a manifestation of another underlying cause Redox Imbalance.

    While the lack of anti-inflammatory nutrients could become a causative issue, as to the inflammation, but in the cases of inflammation due to oxidative stress (redox imbalance), anti-inflammatory nutrients could only offer some protective role, whereas improving the redox imbalance would directly address the cause.

    This new study correctly brings to surface an important underlying cause of premature aging: Redox Imbalance, which promotes the activation inflammatory genes, via activation of the inflammation master switch (NF-kB).

    While this study only discusses the premature cellular aging of the blood vessels but the redox imbalance is a matter of systemic concern, to-wit, not only it affects the cells of the blood vessels but also each and every human cell, as the activation of NF-kB through the redox imbalance is a systemic matter.

    As it relates to this study, the genes are those that cause the activation of Nrf2, a cellular transcription factor. Nrf2 targets one of the most important elements in the human anti-oxidant defense (redox): Glutathione. (1)

    According to The Department of Internal Medicine of University of Miami, the cellular redox is regulated by three systems, two of which are also regulated by glutathione. (2)

    For reason unknown, the production of glutathione decreases by age and while glutathione is found in food, its concentration does not increase significantly either through food or through the dietary supplementation of glutathione.

    In 1996, an anti-oxidant researcher at University of Berkeley, California, Dr. Packer, a professor of molecular and cell biology, discovered that R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, a nutrient, increases the production of glutathione.

    R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (also known as R-Lipoic Acid) is a biologically significant (active) compound produced by human body and found in many foods. The serum concentration R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, like glutathione, does not increase from food but studies have conclusively shown that the dietary supplementation of R-Alpha Lipoic results in its detectable serum concentration.

    In conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp agrees with this important recent study but adds, while targeting the activation of Nrf2 is a fundamental step in correcting the redox imbalance but nutrients that are capable of achieving similar results should receive equal considerations.

    Nutri-Med Logic Corp. is a producer dietary supplements such as a Pharmaceutical Grade R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, the dietary supplement of choice for the Diabetics, in Germany for more than 40 years;

    Nutri-Med Logic Corp is also the producer of the Natural, Balanced, Deodorized and Concentrated Omega-3, which is also a Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3;

      Dr. Sam Speron Discusses The Battle Between Saline, Silicone And New Generation Implants (amazon) (shopzilla)

      Park Ridge, IL (PRWEB) August 11, 2013

      Breast implant surgeries have escalated 40% since 2010 with nearly 300,000 women opting for breast augmentation. However, when it comes to choosing breast implants, women are often baffled on which implants will give them the more natural look that they desire.

      Saline and silicone implants have been used by plastic surgeons since the 1960s. Silicone gel implants were introduced in 1968, however banned temporarily in the US in 1992. The FDA issued a suspension on silicone gel implants due to the concern of the product causing autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. From 1992 to 2006, saline implants were the only choice available to women seeking breast augmentation in the United States. During that time, silicone gel implants still remained the choice of implant for women in South America, Europe and Canada. The FDA finally lifted the suspension on silicone gel implants in 2006 after substantial evidence was presented that silicone gel implants did not cause any diseases. It was confirmed that a womans risk of developing auto-immune diseases was the same whether a patient had silicone gel implants or no implants.

      Saline breast implants are filled with sterilized saltwater solution similar to the fluid that makes up most of the human body. The implant is inserted without fluid and will then be filled to a predetermined size. Silicone gel implants come pre-filled with silicone gel inside a silicone outer shell. Saline implants are more susceptible to rippling, and many patients find them to be a less-natural feeling alternative to silicone.

      In addition, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently approved a new-generation MemoryShape Breast Implant manufactured by Mentor, a unit of New Brunswick-based Johnson & Johnson. The silicone gel in the MemoryShape Breast Implant will contain additional cross-linking compared to the silicone gel used in the companys previously approved implants. Cross-linking refers to the bonds that link one silicone chain to another which will result in a silicone gel that is firmer.

      “The Mentor MemoryShape gives a more natural tear drop shaped appearance in which the upper portion of the breast drops down to a fuller lower portion of the breast forming a breast that looks and feels natural.” noted Dr. Sam Speron, board certified breast plastic surgeon and consumer advocate.

      Mentor will still be required conduct a series of approved studies to evaluate long-term safety and effectiveness conclusions and the risks of rare disease. Mentor will be tracking approximately 2,500 women who will receive the MemoryShape Breast Implants and will be followed until they have completed their 10 year assessments for long-term device performance.

      A patient should keep in mind that any type of implant can exhibit rippling of the overlying skin. Both silicone and saline implants can give you a natural look, especially if the implants are positioned under the chest muscles. Silicone gel breast implants on the other hand have a reputation for providing a more natural feel. Both silicone and saline are considered to be exceptional and safe choices. The choices between implants are primarily determined with the patients personal goals and preferences.

      My opinion is in favor of either saline or silicone implants. I mainly want to achieve constructing natural-appearing results and I believe you can accomplish these results with either silicone or saline, notes Dr. Sam Speron. I tell my patients that silicone implants are a bit riskier as they have a higher contracture rate and need for MRIs but the choice is entirely theirs. At this time, about 80% of my breast augmentation patients chose silicone. added Dr. Sam Speron

      Whatever a patients motives are for considering breast augmentation, it is important that the patient chooses an experienced plastic surgeon who can guide the patient in choosing the best implants as well as keeping the aesthetic goals in mind achieving the finest and utmost natural results.

        Dr. Speron Explains the Perceived Difference Between Male & Female Plastic Surgeons and Boston’s Gender Discrimination Law (amazon) (shopzilla)

        Park Ridge, IL (PRWEB) August 18, 2013

        Cosmetic surgery is successfully booming in the United States and it continues to rise as more individuals seek self-improvement surgically. Despite the enticements, there aren’t a lot of women streaming into plastic surgery as they are into other medical fields such as general medicine, obstetrics, pediatrics and gynecology.

        According to a August, 2012 study by the American College of Surgeons, the number of women in surgery training has increased evidently from 21 percent in 1999 to 35 percent in 2009.

        There were some indications that male and female physicians communicate differently with their patients. Researchers say that, when they observed doctors of both genders during a hundred patient visits, they found that women physicians were more passionate and less overbearing than men. The real subject of debate between male and female plastic surgeons may be though that they have different standards of beauty.

        Female patients are drawn perhaps to the awareness that they are going to acquire more understanding and time from a female surgeon, notes Dr. Sam Speron, board certified plastic surgeon and consumer advocate. I do personally feel though that there are excellent male and female plastic surgeons who relate well to their patients. My patients visually look for a sense of comfort, someone who they are willing to trust. A sense of security is more important to patients than the gender of their physician!

        As reported by the Boston Globe in February of 2013, a Harvard Medical School doctor has settled a gender discrimination lawsuit against Bostons Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center for $ 7 million. Dr. Carol Warfield, who became chief of anesthesia at Beth Israel in 2000, stated that the former chief of surgery discriminated against Carol due to her being a woman. The chief of surgery openly disregarded Carol in meetings and urging for her removal. Once Carol protested to her former chief executive, she suspected both men retaliated and forced her out. Carol Warfield still sees patients part time in the clinic she helped start. Warfield, in an interview with the Globe spoke about the difficulties she had to face as a woman ascending to the top influences of academic medicine. Warfield had also stated that she continuously felt an obligation to keep the door open for other women.

        The human potential to excel in the medical field should not be the province of one gender or another. Dr. Sam Speron noted. There shouldn’t be any discrimination anywhere, especially in the medical field Dr. Sam Speron added.

        When asked in ASPS studies, individuals mostly answered no preference to the question of preferring a male or female surgeon. Patients specified that when choosing a plastic surgeon, what is strictly more important to them is education, credentials and experience. The outdated notions that female plastic surgeons were more compassionate and related better to women or male plastic surgeons were smarter or more competent are simply no longer valid.

            Dr. Sam Speron Agrees With New Studies Explaining The Difference In Skin Aging Between Men and Women (amazon) (shopzilla)

            Park Ridge, IL (PRWEB) July 15, 2013

            If you put one male and one female right next to each other, you may notice that the majority of men will look much younger than the women.

            It is well known that women may live longer than men. It is also believed that men do not age faster than women but simply get frailer. Women have lived longer than men in every era and in many different countries. In the 80s in the USA, the estimated life expectancy at birth was 77.5 years for women and 70 years for men. But do women age significantly slower than men?

            One area where age has a major impact is our skin. Researchers show that mens skin ages differently than womens skin. If you put a same-aged female and male next to each other, you may notice that the male will usually look younger than the female. This is because men secrete slightly more sebum or oil on the skin than women, making them sweat more and allowing them to produce more hair. Individuals with oily skin commonly have thicker skin layers, enabling them to store more fat and water in the skins papillary layer and nutrients in the subcutaneous layer (also known as the Water Tank Layer). In comparison, a person with dry or dehydrated skin will have thinner skin layers and is therefore unable to store mass deposits. We all have the same amount of layers in our skin. The difference is the size of the layers varies for different people with different skin types. Mens skin is actually 25% thicker than womens skin. This is a why mens skin may look younger womens skin.

            One of the reasons women may live longer than men are their advantages in terms of cardiovascular disease such as heart attack and stroke. Studies show that women usually develop these problems in their 70s or 80s, which is 10 years later than men. Men usually develop these diseases in their 50s or 60s. For a long time, researchers believed that these differences were due to estrogen. However, recent studies have actually shown that this may not be the case after all.

            Although researchers have supported allegations on what type of skin may age quicker, ones skin is also affected by numerous external factors, such as the environment and a daily skin care routine. Beneath the surface, skin is affected by a more permanent factor – a patients genes.

            In either men or women, the best way to slow skin aging is to be sure to use a sunblock with an SPF of at least 30 every time you step outside. This habit will help reduce the aging effects of the harmful UV rays to your skin, notes Dr. Speron a board certified plastic surgeon and consumer advocate. Men and women have different skin properties but sunblock, proper nutrition, regular exercise and getting a good nights sleep are vitally important for both.

              New Studies Examining Positive Connections Between Diet Rich in Wild Blueberries and Better Brain Health (amazon) (shopzilla)

              Portland, ME (PRWEB) May 10, 2013

              What started 10 years ago with a few studies looking into the impact of blueberry consumption and Alzheimers Disease has led to more research relating to Parkinsons Disease, cognitive performance in children, balance and hearing.

              During this time, researchers have learned a tremendous amount about the powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties in blueberries. Now, they want to learn more and are launching new studies into the health benefits of the naturally occurring compounds found in blueberries polyphenols, flavonoids and anthocyanins.

              Previous studies have shown the potential for compounds in blueberries to impact memory and mood in older adults, as well as the function of compounds in blueberries to enable housekeeper cells in the brain to remove biochemical debris, which is believed to contribute to the decline of mental functioning with age.

              Below are some of the many brain-related studies currently underway looking into how compounds in blueberries can help improve brain health and protect against other diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other chronic illnesses.

              Parkinsons Disease

              Parkinsons Disease is a degenerative disease that affects the area of the brain that controls movement, and researchers at Purdue University and North Carolina State University are looking for ways polyphenol compounds in Wild Blueberries may slow or help prevent Parkinsons Disease.

              Hundreds of thousands of people are impacted by Parkinsons Disease in the U.S. alone. The potential positive impact of discovering a link between compounds in Wild Blueberries and Parkinsons is huge, noted Mary Ann Lila, Director of the Plants for Human Health Institute at North Carolina State and a leading researcher in this area.
