A New Study Suggests Certain Nutrients May Offer a Healthy Intervention In Premature Aging of Lungs (amazon) (shopzilla)

(PRWEB) January 22, 2012

A recently published study opens the discussion of the importance of nutrients as a therapeutic vehicle in lung diseases, such as COPD and Emphysema. Expanding on this study, Nutri-Med Logic Corp states that, while polyphenols in this new study are correctly suggested to retain potent anti-oxidant properties, capable of activating certain genes associated with aging, R-alpha Lipoic, an endogenous anti-oxidant, also retains similar suggested potent anti-oxidant properties, capable of interfering with premature cellular aging.

According to American Society for Clinical Nutrition (Proceedings of The International Conference on Polyphenols and Health), polyphenols are antioxidants, and since 1995 they have received more reviews and interest from nutritionists than antioxidant vitamins, carotenoids or minerals. (1)

In 2010, the Department of Environmental Medicine’s Lung Biology and Disease Program, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, NY, proposed that polyhenols, aside from having anti-oxidant properties, also, possess the potential ability to regulate metabolism, stress resistance, cellular survival, and cellular aging. (2)

In this recent study, University of Rochester Medical Center, states that COPD is, also, inflammaging (inflammatory disease associated with aging) and, further, since polyphenols possess the potential ability to regulate inflammation, due to their anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory nature, promote cellular resistance to premature death via activating Sirt-1 (a gene associated with regulation of cellular aging), polyphenols offer promising therapeutic intervention for lung health.

Notable polyphenols are resveratrol, curcumin and catechins, found in red wine, turmeric and green-tea, respectively.

Not only the University of Rochester Medical Center but also many other equally prestigious institutes have suggested the potential benefits from nutrients such as polyphenols, due to their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-premature cellular aging potentials.

One other equally important nutrient is R-Alpha Lipoic, which has anti-oxidant properties that could surpass polyphenols, due to its hydrophilic and lipophilic ability (water and fat soluble), as well as its potential ability to neutralize free radicals in mitochondria (cellular energy plant).

Alpha Lipoic was used by Dr. Burton Burkson, The FDA principal investigator of Lipoic Acid for last 23 years, in the treatment of a patient with pancreatic cancer and liver metastases. Dr. Burkson credits Lipoic Acid for its ability to moderate NF-kB, a master switch of inflammation. As a parallel comparison, the recent study also suggests moderation of NF-kB by polyphenols.

Additionally the anti-aging properties of R-Alpha Lipoic acid was a component of supplements that got the attention of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Division of Cancer Biology (DCB) as a popular combination of anti-aging and vitality formula, as reported by National Toxicology program, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.

It has been suggested that dietary supplementation of R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (also known as R- Lipoic Acid), increases the production, as well as the cellular concentration, of glutathione, which decrease by age. Glutathione is perhaps the most potent internal anti-oxidant and its decline shifts the body toward oxidative stress and its inevitable consequences of cellular aging.

In Conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp agrees with this recent study regarding the benefits of polyphenols. However, Nutri-Med Logic Corp adds that R-Alpha Lipoic is equally important as an endogenous anti-oxidant, and a vital co-enzyme in the production of energy, which a plethora of studies have suggested. Also, it is valuable for its multi-faceted benefits.

    Omega-3 Dietary Intervention May Prevent Functional Losses of The Sight (amazon) (shopzilla)

    Miami, FL (PRWEB) March 25, 2012

    A new study by the Department of Ophthalmology, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, suggests that supplementation of Omega-3 fatty acids has resulted in a protective application against a particular toxin, commonly associated with age-related retina functional losses. Nutri-Med Logic Corp, agreeing with study, adds that while dietary intervention of Omega-3 may improve age-related retina dysfunction and some retina degenerative diseases, prophylactic supplementation of Omega-3 would also reduce the risk of developing such dysfunction or diseases, in the first place.

    The study by the University of Alberta suggests that DHA Omega-3 dietary supplementation resulted in its increased retina levels for the 1-3 months, 1-6 months trials and while the 1-3 months intervention had no effects, in the 1-6 months intervention the retinal pigment epithelial cells (cell layer just outside the neurosensory retina) function was preserved and the 6-12 months trail led to maintained outer and inner retina function.

    The University of Alberta study was conducted on accumulation of a constituent (A2E) of the toxin Lipofuscin, also referred to as the aging pigment and “a wear and tear indicator” for nerve cells and retina ganglion cells. Lipofuscin has been and remains a focus of aging and stress research and there is sufficient evidence to reasonably infer that Lipofuscin can also be used as a marker of oxidative stress and aging, in general. Adv Exp Med Biol. 1989;266:17-26; Discussions 27-9.

    Since retina has the highest concentration of DHA Omega-3 fatty acids, many studies such as the University of Alberta study have sought to evaluate if its dietary intervention could improve or delay the onset and/or the progression of retina diseases.

    It is a known fact that DHA Omega-3 fatty acids exclusively activate the signaling pathways that can promote cell survival during their early development and protects them, later, from premature death. J. Neurochem. Vol. 98, P. 1507 – Sept. 2006.

    Additionally, DHA Omega-3 fatty acids are also the precursor to Docosanoids, which produce neuroprotectin D1, inhibiting premature apoptosis (cell death) and oxidative-stress-mediated pro-inflammatory gene induction. Trends in Neuroscience. 2006 May;29(5):263-71.

    Moreover, according to University of Maryland Medical Center, in a study of more than 3,000 people over the age of 49, those who consumed more fish (richest source of Omeg-3) were less likely to have Age-Related Maculate Degeneration (onset) than those who ate fewer fish.

    University of Maryland Medical Center further states that other studies show that eating fatty fish reduces the risk of Age-Related Maculate Degeneration “AMD” in half and consuming DHA and EPA fatty acids may even reduce the risk of developing AMD.

    Last but not least, according to the Department of Opthalmology, Ottawa Hospital Eye Institute, University of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, their meta-analysis of eligible studies between 1995 and 2004 indicates trends in improvement of some retinitis pigmentosa outcomes with omega-3 fatty acids in higher quality studies. Can. J. Ophthalmol. 2006 Aug;41(4):481-90.

    In conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp, agreeing with this news study, adds that while dietary intervention of Omega-3 has resulted in notable therapeutic values for the age-related retina dysfunction or retina diseases, but the results are associated with the proper duration of its supplementation. Nutri-Med Logic Corp also adds that prophylactic supplementation of Omega-3, both DHA and EPA fatty acids, have been also associated with delaying or deterring the onset of such retina age-related dysfunction and diseases.

    Nutri-Med Logic Corp is the producer of the Natural, Balanced, Deodorized, Concentrated & Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3.

      Investigation in Metabolic Syndrome and Brain Points to Dietary Intervention of Omega-3 (amazon) (shopzilla)

      Miami, Florida (PRWEB) April 11, 2012

      A newly published study in the Journal of Physiology states that, in animal study, a diet high in fructose but low in Omega-3 fatty acids results in disturbance in the brain energy homeostasis, decrease in the level of a biological molecule (Sir2, responsible for cellular longevity) and a biological process (AMPK, associated with insulin resistance and diabetes). Nutri-Med Logic Corp, agreeing with this study, adds that while supplementation of Omega-3 improves both aforesaid, credible evidence suggests that levels of Sir2 and the activation of AMPK would be further increased via supplementation of another important nutrient, R-Alpha Lipoic.

      High (concentrated) fructose is found in many candy bars and soft drinks. Data from 1909 to 1997 relating to nutritional consumption of concentrated fructose (corn syrup) was examined and a significant correlation was found between concentrated fructose and metabolic disturbances (dyslipidemia), suggesting that high dietary intake of fructose is an important causative factor in the development of the metabolic syndrome. (1)

      This recent study examined the effects of Metabolic Syndrome (high-fructose die) and brain energy homeostasis, taking into account a diet deficient Omega-3, as a potential causative factor. According to this study, when animal were fed Omega-3 there was an increase in an important biological molecule and a biological process. Those being Sir2, a highly investigated protein (proposed to prolong cellular longevity) and the activation of AMPK, a process that plays a key and fundamental role in cellular energy homeostasis and a target of many anti-diabetic agents.

      While these findings expand the beneficial properties of Omega-3, Nutri-Med Logic Corp adds that the relationship between another important nutrient, R-Alpha Lipoic (Lipoic Acid) and SIRT-1, mammaline equivalent of SIRT2, was recently discovered by the University of Navarra, Pamplona, Spain, investigation cellular energy (mitochondria) in fatty liver disease. Obesity (Silver Spring). 2012 Feb 13.

      The study by the University of Navarra found that Lipoic Acid stimulated SIRT-1 and increased the production of a potent anti-oxidant, ManSOD, by 60.6%.

      ManSOD adjusts and/or maintains the proper level of free radical as well as offering metabolic homeostatic poise. (2)

      Additionally, overwhelming number of studies have suggested (PubMed, Keyword: Lipoic Acid AMPK; most recent Diabetologia. 2012 Mar 30) that Alpha Lipoic Acid induces an improvement of insulin sensitivity through activation of AMPK, as well as reducing triglyceride accumulation in skeletal muscle.

      In conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp, agreeing with this recent study, adds that while dietary intervention of Omega-3 offers valuable health benefits in brain energy homeostasis and metabolic syndrome, credible evidence suggests addition of R-Alpha Lipoic would amplify the results.

      Nutri-Med Logic Corp is the producer of the Natural, Balanced, Deodorized, Concentrated & Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3. Omega-3 is the most effective anti-inflammatory nutrient.

      Nutri-Med Logic Corp is also a producer of dietary supplements such as a Pharmaceutical Grade R-Lipoic Acid (the natural type of Lipoic Acid), a universal anti-oxidant and the dietary supplement of choice for the Diabetics, in Germany for decades;

      Producer of PolyEnylPhosphatidylCholine (PPC 425mg), an extract of soy, a pure and effective dietary source of choline and the recommended dietary supplement for those with Fatty Liver and Alcoholic Liver Disease, in Europe for decades.
