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. (1)

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.

      HealthyAnswers.com Reveals The 10 Best Nutrients To Prevent Cardiovascular Disease (amazon) (shopzilla)


      Delray Beach, FL (PRWEB) December 27, 2012

      Cardiovascular disease is the #1 killer of both men and women in the United States today, but that doesnt have to be the case, says HealthyAnswers.com. In one of their recent health alerts, HealthyAnswers.com explained the key to keeping a healthy heart is to include the best heart nutrients in the diet several times a week.

      HealthyAnswers.com resident medical expert, Mark Rosenberg, M.D., explains, A variety of specific nutrients have different jobs that keep the heart healthy. These nutrients can come from whole foods or from extracts in supplement form. These nutrients include powerhouses like: Omega-3 and ALA essential fatty acids which perform the vital function of cooling inflammation throughout the body. Heart researchers have recently found that inflammation is one of the biggest factors that create the risky arterial plaques of cardiovascular disease.

      Another supernutrient group are the B vitamins, particularly folic acid, B12 and niacin. B12 and folic acid help decrease dangerous homocysteine that can form blood clots; niacin helps reduce bad LDL cholesterol.

      Antioxidants particularly vitamins C, E help fight free radicals that can damage cellular DNA. Co-Q10 is another that helps energize the mitochondria power centers of your cells to keep them functioning at a healthy level.
