New Study Suggests Metabolic Homeostasis As A Novel Opportunity In The Treatment of Diseases Such As Diabetes (amazon) (shopzilla)

Miami, Florida (PRWEB) January 21, 2012

Nutri-Med Logic Corp expands on a new study, published in the January Issue of the World Journal of Diabetes, which has targeted a gene (Nrf2), a central regulator of the cellular antioxidant defense, as a novel target for the treatment of Diabetes.

Nrf2 produces the most potent internal anti-oxidant, that being glutathione and while glutathione is found in food but studies have shown its concentration does not increase, significantly, through conventional food or its dietary supplementation.

Additionally, glutathione decreases by age and lack of glutathione shifts the bodys homeostasis toward oxidative stress, which according to this study, oxidative stress, may lead to the pathogenesis of diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, metabolic syndrome, aging and cancer.

Proper nutrients play an important role in enhancing or moderating the factors that shift the bodys homeostasis.

In 2004, a panel of U.S. and Canadian scientists recalculated the amounts of vitamins and minerals, based age and sex, and declared 30 vitamins and minerals as the raw materials that body requires daily but it cannot make in sufficient amounts: Essential Nutrients.

It is a fact that lack of these 30 essential nutrients plays an important part in the homeostasis of the body and some of those present important anti-oxidant properties. However, none of these 30 essential nutrients would increase the levels of glutathione, the most potent endogenous anti-oxidant, which recycles vitamin C and E, as well as re-energizing Co-Enzyme Q-10, an important anti-oxidant for the heart.

In 1996, Professor Lester Packer a senior anti-oxidant researcher and scientist at the University of California (Berkley) discovered that dietary supplementation of R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (also known as R-Lipoic Acid), increased the production, as well as the cellular concentration of glutathione. R-Alpha Lipoic, in its reduced form, is made by the human body, as a vital co-enzyme in the metabolism of glucose.

Stress and inflammation, also, play an equal but crucial role in shifting the bodys homeostasis and are implicated in diseases, ranging from degenerative, neurodegenerative, chronic, autoimmune to opportunistic and infectious diseases.

A cursory search of PubMed records reveals at least 200,000 related studies in the role of stress or inflammation and diseases, as well as, at least 2,100 related studies of Omega-3 fatty acids in inflammation and stress.

The primary mechanism for the resolution of the inflammation starts from the cellular membrane through the derivatives of the fatty acids of Omega-3. The membrane ratio of Omeg-3 dictates the intensity and the duration of inflammatory responses.

Diets lacking Omega-3 tilt the balance to the pro-inflammatory agents, thus throwing the body out of its homeostasis, as well.

The role of stress and homeostasis has been well studied and established. More importantly, the role of Omega-3 in moderating stress, specifically in the cases of depression and anxiety, has been even suggested by The National Institutes of Health.

The human body needs Omega-3 but cannot produce it. In the scientific community, Omega-3 is referred to as Essential Fatty Acids.

In conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp agrees with this recent study and the consequences of a redox imbalance but adds that stress and inflammation, also, play a crucial role in the homeostasis of the human body. Nutri-Med Logic Corp adds that the foregoing clearly establishes the need for inclusion of an anti-oxidant and an anti-inflammatory nutrient in the daily diet.

Nutri-Med Logic Corp. is a producer of dietary supplements, including a Pharmaceutical Grade R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, the ideal daily anti-oxidant and the dietary supplement of choice for the Diabetics, in Germany for more than 40 years.

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

Producer of PolyEnylPhosphatidylCholine (PPC 425mg), an extract of soy and the recommended dietarty supplement for those with Fatty Liver and Alcoholic Liver Disease, in Europe for about 50 years;

    New Study on Oxidative Stress Provides Insights to Premature Aging, Diabetes, Atherosclerosis, Hypertension and Neurodegenerative Diseases (amazon) (shopzilla)

    Miami, FL (PRWEB) February 17, 2012

    A newly published study, adopting the thinning of skin layers as a measure of normal or premature aging and the development of degenerative disease, states that in animal models proper anti-oxidant defense lead to normal skin aging, whereas deficiency in the anti-oxidant defense resulted in premature aging. Nutri-Med Logic Corp adds that an imbalance in the anti-oxidant defense inevitably involves the immune system and, thus, shifting its homeostasis. Accordingly, any therapeutic intervention needs to incorporate anti-inflammatory nutrients, as well.

    According the study, at ideal levels, ROS play essential roles as regulatory mediators in signaling or defense processes, including the promotion of angiogenesis (blood vessel formation), erythropoietin (red blood cell) production and the destruction of bacteria and other foreign substances by immune system.

    ROS is regulated by cellular anti-oxidant defense system, one of which is Superoxide Dismutase (SOD). Lower cellular levels of SOD gives rise to excessive Reactive Oxygen Species concentration. In another word, development of oxidative stress and according to this study, a growing body of evidence suggests its definitive role in premature aging and a host of human diseases ranging from diabetes, atherosclerosis, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative diseases up to cancer (DNA damage).

    Nutri-Med Logic Corp states that while increasing SOD might not be effectively attainable through diet, but the concentration of an equally important internal anti-oxidant, R-Alpha Lipoic, could very well be attained through its dietary supplementation.

    Both R-Alpha Lipoic and SOD are found in the mitochondria, where metabolism of glucose gives rise to the production of Reactive Oxygen Species.

    Application of R-Alpha Lipoic has conclusively shown that in presence of R-Alpha Lipoic, there is reduced requirement for SOD, by the human body, indicating the importance of R-Alpha Lipoic as a key anti-oxidant nutrient. (1)

    Other studies have shown that SOD presents anti-inflammatory properties, more specifically in studies relating to inflammatory Bowel Disease. (2)

    Inflammation is an immune mechanism and its dysregulation is not limited to Inflammatory Bowel Disease, rather it is implicated in the same spectrum of diseases as the oxidative stress, including but limited to per-mature cellular aging, diabetes, atherosclerosis, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative diseases up to cancer.

    While SOD has anti-inflammatory properties but it is not the mechanism, by which the human body resolves the inflammation. The human body resolves inflammation in two principal manners, one of which is through derivatives of Omega-3 fatty acids. The human body is incapable of producing Omega-3, thus it must be supplied through diet.

    While addition of R-Alpha Lipoic is a valuable nutritional support in improving the anti-oxidant defense (redox homeostasis), contemporaneous incorporation of the most powerful anti-inflammatory nutrient (Omega-3) would improve the homeostasis of the immune system (inflammation).

    In conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp agrees with this important new study but adds that regulation of inflammation is equally as important, in opposing the development of age-related disease and cellular premature aging, as the regulated anti-oxidant defense.

    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.
