Reports on Study Showing Specific Antioxidant Could Help Fight Wrinkles (amazon) (shopzilla)

Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 15, 2012

The Doctors Health Press, a publisher of various natural health newsletters, books and reports, including the popular online Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin, is reporting on study that has shown astaxanthin, a potent antioxidant that is part of the carotenoid family, could help protect the skin from signs of aging.

As reported in Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin on Monday, May 14, 2012 ( ), the theory is that astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant that fights free-radical damage, helping to banish wrinkles and age spots, while making you look younger as you age. Following this same train of thought, Japanese researchers performed two clinical studies.

The Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin article reports that one was a study involving 30 healthy female participants that lasted for eight weeks. Significant improvements in skin appearance were observed by combining an oral supplement with a topical application of astaxanthin each day. Participants showed improvements in crows feet (those wrinkles around your eyes), age spot size, skin elasticity, and skin texture and moisture content after the eight weeks.

The other study involved 36 healthy male participants for six weeks. The researchers found similar results for the men: crows feet wrinkle and skin elasticity improved, along with transepidermal water loss after six milligrams of astaxanthin daily supplementation. Moisture content and sebum oil level at the cheek zone also showed strong improvement. The research team concluded that astaxanthin derived from Haematococcus pluvialis (a type of algae particularly rich in the carotenoid) may improve skin condition not only in women, but also in men.

The Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin article warns that there are conflicting reports about the safety of supplementing with astaxanthin long-term. There may be interactions with some drugs, as well as side effects (which could include yellow- or orange-colored skin, orange or red feces, unwanted hair growth, lowered calcium levels, decreased libido, and male breast enlargement, according to some sources).

Astaxanthin is a potent antioxidant that is part of the carotenoid family. Astaxanthin is made from certain kinds of algae as well as other similar microorganisms. When shrimp or krill feed on algae, they store astaxanthin in their shells. Humans consume astaxanthin when eating some seafood.

    ANTIAGING Institute of California Offers Natural Remedies for Erectile Dysfunction with the Help of LAD Solutions (amazon) (shopzilla)

    Beverly Hills, California (PRWEB) June 30, 2012

    More than 30 million men experience erectile dysfunction to varying degrees. The experience leaves men embarrassed at the least and completely humiliated at the worst. To help improve the sexual health of American men, ANTIAGING Institute of California has developed Function, one of the newest natural remedies for erectile dysfunction. To assist in the online promotion of the product, the firm has partnered with LAD Solutions, a Los Angeles-based internet marketing firm.

    Function for men works by providing a large supply of 100% natural high potency extract to generate nitric oxide. Nitric oxide has a number of functions within the body, including acting as a hormone to help increase blood flow. When blood flow is increased to the male genitalia, the size and duration of an erection also increase.

    Erectile dysfunction is an unfortunately common occurrence in American society, as current social habits encourage behavior that exacerbates the condition. The main causes of the condition include obesity, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and a sedentary lifestyle. In addition to these common causes, there are many others, such as stress, a feeling of self-consciousness about sex, feeling troubled in a relationship, high blood pressure, vascular disease, and diabetes.

    Function for men, however, does not act only as one of many remedies for erectile dysfunction, as it also provides a number of other health benefits as well. Some of those benefits include:

                Preventive Medicine Treatments for Future Mothers will Help Reduce the Number of Babies Born with Autism – Grand Opening of Living Longer Medical Resort on December 19 2012 (amazon) (shopzilla)

                Desert Hot Springs, Califronia (PRWEB) December 20, 2012

                The A 2011 Stanford University School of Medicine study which found that 62 % of autism risk as attributable to environmental factors. (#1) A report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that the number of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders is one in 88 in newborns, a 78% increase compared to results from a decade ago, and that the number of children born with autism and the number will double in the next 5 years..(#2)

                Multiple medical studies have found more than 200 chemicals in the umbilical cords of newborns.One of the recently Published Medical Research Studies, that found and identified the over 220 chemicals that may cause autism and other birth defects in a mothers umbilical cord, identified the rapidly-rising amount of toxic chemical contaminants found in our environment from exposures to air, water, and food, and in consumer products and commercial chemicals omnipresent on supermarket shelves.(#3)

                Our environment is currently flooded with chemicals that contaminate our body cells. One past study by the Environmental Protection agency (EPA) was engaged in the National Human Adipose (fat) Tissue Survey (NHATS). In this study, adipose samples from elective surgeries and cadavers from all regions of the country showed that the levels of measured and documented toxins reflected a skyrocketing increase. These results are a cause for great concern. Five of the chemicals that are known to cause birth defects were found in 100% of all samples. Another nine chemicals known to cause birth defects were found in 91-98% of all samples. In addition, olychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) were found in 83% of all samples, and beta-BHC in 87%, both of which have linked to birth defects and cancer. A total of 20 toxic compounds that have been known to cause birth defects, such as autism, were found in 76% or more of all samples(#4).For unknown reasons The United States governments E.P.A. discontinued this important study in 1986 after documenting such alarming increases, although they still continue to monitor chemicals in our environment.(#5) Many more published studies both international and from the United States confirm that the amount of toxic chemicals, that are known to cause cancer, autism, birth defects, and many other health issues have been increasing at an alarming rate.(#6)

                The doctors believe and promote preventive medicine procedure that treat the causes instead of waiting to treat the effects of the many health issues that are growing at an alarming rate in our modern society (including autism, birth defects, cancers, dementia and memory loss). They also are convinced that preventative medicine will have a major role in the future of the health care industry in the USA.

                The fact that many of these health problems are related to or caused by toxic chemicals found in our bodys cells and the benefits of cleansing the body of these toxic chemicals and improving circulation and blood flow will continue to be shown in published medical studies and research papers. The doctors have developed science-based, natural medicine procedures that implement cellular cleansing in combination with oxygen delivery treatments. These medical procedures have shown amazing improvement for patients who already suffer from health issues, including autism and other neurological and autoimmune disorders. The treatments and procedures focus on flushing, cleansing, de-toxing and ridding the body of harmful chemicals. Blood testing is offered where an independent laboratory identifies the toxic chemicals, and documents the decrease in amounts that treatment produces).The other focuses of these medical procedures is to strengthen the immune system and to rejuvenate, regenerate and improve the bodys cells growth and development, by improving the circulation of the blood, and making the vessels and arteries that remove the toxins and deliver nutrition and oxygen to the cells much more efficient, beneficial and productive. The doctors use an inter-graded preventive medicine approach when administering preventive medicine treatments and when treating patients already affected with autism and other neurological disorders. These medical procedures use medical equipment and procedures that modern western medical research and science provide (hyperbaric chamber oxygen, cold light laser, enhanced external counter pulsation, passive oxygen, heart rate variability monitoring, infrared therapies),combined with time-tested, eastern natural-healing medicine(supplements, herbs, juicing, nutrition, diet, exercise, massage, wraps, yoga, mind body meditation, acupressure) to address, treat and prevent these health problems and promote anti-aging and longer life.

                They are also aware, from multiple medical studies, of the effect that stress has on the bodys overall health and healing. One study from Researchers in Columbus Ohio found that stress can stretch the total time it takes for a body injury to heal by as much as 40%.(#7) This study parallels other studies on the significant effects of stress on the human immune system (which is the critical component in how the body naturally fights diseases, infections, and heals itself).(#8) These facts led our doctor to create the concept of a medical resort where intensive, yet relaxing, medical treatments are administered in a health-retreat setting where patients are administered calming and soothing, yet intensive, medical treatments while relaxing and vacationing in a low-stress environment. The Doctors at Living Longer Medical Resort are sure that the treatment programs will cost less than you think, while ignoring them could be far more costly then you could ever imagine for your familys welfare and future.
