Surprising Findings in Anti-Oxidant Supplementation and Younger Population (amazon) (shopzilla)

Miami, Florida (PRWEB) April 25, 2012

A newly published study in the Hypertension investigating the effects of anti-oxidants in blood flow and blood vessel function, which consisted of 87 healthy volunteers, 42 between the ages of 24-26 and 45 between 70-72, suggests different health outcomes in young vs. old.

The study incorporated a very powerful cocktail of potent anti-oxidants, those being Alpha Lipoic acid (600mg), vitamin C (1000mg) and vitamin E(600 IU).

While there is no RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance) on Alpha Lipoic Acid but 600mg supplementation is normally associated with those having pathological conditions such as Diabetes.

The RDA on vitamin C, for more than 19 years of age, stands at 90mg for men and 75mg for women, all smokers needing additional 35mg, and for Vitamin E is 22 IU from natural sources or 33 IU from synthetic sources, for more than 14 years of age.

The anti-oxidant cocktail incorporated, in this study, not only by far was one of the most powerful mixes, especially given the fact that Alpha Lipoic Acid additionally re-energizes the inactive vitamin C and vitamin E, but also the amount of the intake was relative to the upper limits of these anti-oxidants.

Aside from increasing the available vitamins C and E, Alpha Lipoic Acid also increases the synthesis and intracellular concentration of glutathione, the most potent internal anti-oxidant, which declines by age. Amongst its diverse properties, glutathione is used by the human body to neutralized free radicals and regulate an important biological process called Redox.

According to The Department of Internal Medicine of University of Miami, the cellular redox is regulated by three systems that counteract with free radicals, two of which are regulated by glutathione. Drugs. 2011 Jul 30;71(11):1385-96

While increasing glutathione, through such a potent intake of Alpha Lipoic Acid might be beneficial in very short term for the elder population, as it relates to the elimination of free radicals, improving the endothelial (blood vessel) function, but too much of glutathione is not beneficial for neither the old or the young.

Glutathione is found in sufficient amount in the younger population. However, its levels decline by age and while boosting glutathione is highly important to the health of older generation for eliminating oxidative stress, increasing glutathione in excessive amount results in an adverse health condition, referred to as Reductive Stress.

According to the University of Utah School of Medicine, excessive levels of one antioxidant reduced glutathione may actually produce adverse health results, which might explain why in the younger population the potent anti-oxidant cocktail did not produce favorable outcome.

In conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp agrees with this study that potent anti-oxidants, especially R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, improve endothelial function in the elders but adds that the result of this important study should not be mistaken, whereas consumption of anti-oxidants produce adverse effects in the younger population. The younger population, more than 25 years of age, could also benefit from anti-oxidants. However, the amount of the intake has to be reasonable and relevant to the age of the consumer, taking into account that too much of any good thing might harm the body.

    Nutralife Hails New Studys Findings on SAM-e, Giving Hope to Millions Seeking Joint Relief (amazon) (shopzilla)

    Lakewood,NJ (PRWEB) April 04, 2013

    The popular supplement S-Adenosyl Methionine, commonly known as SAMe received the highest rating for all supplements in a recent report evaluating the efficacy of many supplements taken for osteoarthritis. Once again this study reiterates the value of SAMe and offers significant hope for the 27 million plus Americans who suffer from osteoarthritis on a daily basis.

    In the report released by Arthritis Research UK, a major medical research organization in England, researchers evaluated 31 complementary medicines taken either by mouth or applied to the skin that were found to have quality studies available. Each was scored for effectiveness based on users improvements in pain, disability or quality of life on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 suggesting the lowest degree of efficacy and 5 suggesting the highest. SAMe received a 4, the highest rating of all the supplements for arthritis relief.

    The results of this study are not surprising to us, stated Abigail Glass, President and Founder of Nutralife Health Products (NHP), a New Jersey based company that has been distributing SAMe supplements for over a decade. Our customers have constantly been reporting back to us that SAMe has helped rejuvenate their joints, like no other supplement. According to the Textbook of Natural Medicine (Michael T. Murray, 2006), a total of 21,524 patients with osteoarthritis have utilized SAMe in detailed clinical trials. In double-blind trials, SAMe has demonstrated similar reductions in pain scores and clinical symptoms to those produced by nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and was found to be generally much better tolerated.

    We are pleased that the benefits and scientific evidence of the efficacy of SAMe has been reiterated, says Ephraim Glass, VP of Marketing at Nutralife Health Products. Because of the staggering amount of consumers suffering from osteoarthritis, it is important that they are able to make informed decisions about the supplements they purchase. There are 27 million people in the United States who suffer from osteoarthritis, and the number is on the rise according to a recent CDC report. According to a US government report released in 2013 by the AHRQ (Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality), a division of the National Institute of Health; Osteoarthritis was the most common diagnosis among adults ages 45-84 in 2010.

    We know that SAMe is truly a unique product, says Sarah Levi, VP of Research and Development at Nutralife Health Products. SAMe has been around for decades, has been the subject of numerous clinical trials and reviews, and is time and again proven effective.

    Nutralife Health Products introduced SAMe into the United States in the 1990s, and it remains a leading brand in SAMe distribution. NHPs SAMe is available in 200mg and 400mg doses and contain the trademarked (S)SAMe, Nutralifes proprietary SAMe raw material.

    Nutralife has always been at the forefront of SAMe research. We hope that by promoting consumer awareness, many more people will realize the benefits of SAMe, stated Abigail Glass.
