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.

    Healthy Energy Shot 24K Becomes Ninth Reliv Product to Earn Patent (amazon) (shopzilla)

    Chesterfield, MO (PRWEB) July 26, 2013

    Reliv International, Inc. (NASDAQ:RELV), a maker of nutritional supplements that promote optimal health, this week announced that healthy energy shot 24K has earned a patent from the US government. Dr. Carl W. Hastings, Relivs chief scientific officer and creator of 24K, made the announcement as part of opening night at Relivs 25th Anniversary International Conference.

    This patent validates the work our R&D team put into making 24K unlike any other energy product on the market, Hastings said. 24K provides a healthy alternative to the high-caffeine, high-sugar energy shots that have become so prevalent in recent years. And with 24K, you not only get energy, but nutritional support for mental focus and stress relief as well.

    The patent for 24K comes two years after the product was first introduced and was named the Peoples Choice for Favorite New Consumer Product by the American Business Awards.

    Cracking the Fatigue Cycle

    Energy drinks have surged in popularity in recent years, and health advocates have expressed concern about the excessive amounts of caffeine found in most of these products. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration continues to investigate reports of illness, injury and even death of people who drank products marketed as energy drinks or energy shots. In June, the American Medical Association adopted a policy supporting a ban of the marketing of high stimulant/caffeine drinks to adolescents under the age of 18.

    Most popular energy products rely on caffeine and sugar to provide a quick jolt, Hastings said. But this can cause an unhealthy spike in heart rate and blood sugar, leading to an inevitable crash. Such stimulants only mask the symptoms of fatigue. 24K provides a healthy solution by addressing the underlying problem the fatigue cycle.

    Physical fatigue and mental fog go hand-in-hand, and stress is a leading contributor to both. Together, they make up the fatigue cycle. 24K delivers 24 active ingredients backed by clinical research to address all three factors. View healthy energy shot 24K’s ingredient list.

      Simple Steps for Boosting Energy, from the June 2013 Harvard Men’s Health Watch (amazon) (shopzilla)

      Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 13, 2013

      Some days do you feel like the Energizer Bunny with a weak batterystarting strong but unable to keep going and going? There are several ways to help boost flagging energy, like pacing activities, taking power naps, and eating healthfully, according to the June 2013 issue of the Harvard Men’s Health Watch. One thing that doesn’t work: taking overhyped dietary supplements.

      Sometimes fatigue is due to a medical condition. If that’s been ruled out, here are a few basic steps to maintain energy throughout the day:

      Set a steady pace: With age, the energy “battery” may not be able to store quite the charge it used to. “It’s fully charged but it’s smaller and you have fewer hours of energy in it,” says Dr. Fabiny, chief of geriatrics at Cambridge Health Alliance and an assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. “If you try to do all the things you did in the past, you could end up feeling tired.” Instead of burning through the battery in two hours, spread it out between morning tasks, afternoon tasks, and evening activitieswith rest and meals between.

      Take a walk: When daytime fatigue stems from chronic sleeplessness (insomnia), napping can make it worse. Instead of napping, get up and take a walk. For people who sleep well at night, a 20- to 30-minute power nap may work wonders.

      Fuel up: Sugary bakery treats deliver plenty of calories to rev up energy in the morning, but the body tends to metabolize them quickly. The result is often a sinking blood sugar level and fatigue. Instead, eat a breakfast or lunch with protein and fiber and moderate carbslike low-fat yogurt with a sprinkling of nuts, raisins, and honey. The body burns a carb-fiber-protein mix more gradually. And don’t skip meals: Your body needs a certain number of calories to get through the work of the day.

      Skip the supplements: Don’t believe claims that the widely hyped supplement known as DHEA is an anti-aging supplement. “There is absolutely no evidence that DHEA provides any benefit,” Dr. Fabiny says. Taking extra B vitamins doesn’t boost energy either. The same can be said for iron supplements, and getting too much iron can actually be harmful. Get your vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients the old fashioned wayin food.
