Studies Show Mens Biological Clock is Ticking Too — Chinese Medicine Can Boost Sperm Quality (amazon) (shopzilla)


Vancouver Canada (PRWEB) February 16, 2012

Age takes its toll on mens sperm starting at about age 30, and semen quantity and sperm quality decline sharply after age 45 according to a recent study presented at the American Society for Reproductive Medicines annual conference.

This can affect pregnancy outcomes for couples undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF). Advanced paternal age is also associated with a higher risk of spontaneous abortion and genetic disorders like downs syndrome, autism spectrum disorder and schizophrenia. Natural supplements and Traditional Chinese medicine appears to repair the quality of aging sperm.

Acubalance Wellness Centre, a Fertility Acupuncture clinic, is offering a free seminar on Fertility and Age: Can You Turn Back the Reproductive Clock? March 12 at Pekoe Tea Lounge in Vancouver. Lorne Brown, a Dr of TCM and clinical director at Acubalance, will be talking about the effects of age on mens and womens fertility, and what you can do about it.

Much of what we do is try to slow down the reproductive clock, repair environmental insults to the reproductive system, and extend that window of fertility for both men and women. Chinese herbal therapy and regular acupuncture has been shown to boost sperm quality. There are now some exciting studies showing that CO Q10 may be effective in improving semen parameters. says Brown.

A study published in the Journal of Urology found that Coenzyme Q10 supplementation resulted in a statistically significant improvement in certain semen parameters. The study stated that further studies were needed to determine to what extent those improved parameters results in increased pregnancy rates.

Another study has just shown that vitamin D levels may be a potent factor in fertility for men and women. Vitamin D is essential for the healthy development of each sperms nucleus. It also increases levels of the male sex hormone testosterone, improving a mans libido, according to the review of several studies, published this week in the European Journal of Endocrinology.

Vitamin D3 is one of the supplements I prescribe to boost male fertility in all my male patients particularly those over 40, says Brown.

    Studies in Anxiety and Depression Point to Age-Associated Benefits of Omega-3 (amazon) (shopzilla)

    Miami, Florida (PRWEB) March 20, 2012

    A newly published study by the School of Medicine, Adelaide University, Adelaide, Australia, suggests inflammatory markers, more specifically, the marker PAI-1 is associated with remitted depression but not with the symptom of anxiety in the older population. Nutri-Med Logic Corp adds that PAI-1 is also an indicator of mental stress, which is the precursor to anxiety in the younger population, as well as hypertension and coronary artery disease in the older population.

    As to PAI-1 and cardiovascular risk, DR. John Laragh, a Professor of Medicine in Cardiothoracic Surgery and Director of the Cardiovascular Center at The New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Medical Center, more than three decades ago discovered the relationship between stress system and malignant hypertension, in which the bodys ability to dissolve clots is inhibited by PAI-1.

    Later in time, studies by Veterans Administration Medical Center, Gainesville, concluded that supplementation of Omega-3, in three weeks, resulted in a decrease of PAI-1 levels by 21 +/- 5% and such reduction in PAI-1 also correlated with a reduction in blood triglycerides (American Heart Journal. 1988 Nov; 116(5 Pt 1):1201-6.)

    As to PAI-1 and mental stress, overwhelming number of studies have shown a strong correlation between higher levels of stress and increased levels of PAI-1. In particular, blood samples taken before and after a battery of psychological questionnaires, to create mental stress, revealed a strong relationship between mental stress and PAI-1, in which there was a decrease in certain tissue molecules that become inactivated due to an increase in PAI-1 (A decrease in tPA-PAI-1 complex). Eur J Appl Physiol. 2000 Nov;83(4 -5):344-8.

    The dietary intervention of Omega-3 in reducing stress has been well studied, most notably in a recent study by National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism of National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHA), which has sought to incorporate Omega-3 into the diet of the U.S. military, especially those in deployment situation.

    Additionally, The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) of The National Institutes of Health (NIH) also concluded, in a recent report, that an anti-inflammatory diet consisting of Omega-3 reduced the symptoms of Anxiety in the young and healthy subjects, not yet diagnosed with the disorder.

    In conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp states that the findings of overwhelming number of studies relating to PAI-1, mental stress, anxiety and hypertension highlight the importance of Omega-3 dietary intervention, from young to old. Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids not only offer substantial benefits for the cardiovascular health of the older population but also confer beneficial or protective properties for reducing anxiety in young adults, even those not yet diagnosed with the disorder.

    The diverse benefits of Omega-3 in cardiovascular or nervous system arises from two important polyunsaturated fatty acids: EPA Omega-3 fatty acids with broad anti-inflammatory application in cardiovascular system and DHA Omega-3 fatty acids with broad anti-inflammatory and protective application in the brain and nervous system. Low levels of DHA Omega-3 fatty acids have also been associated with higher levels of mental stress and aggression.

      Dr. Sam Speron Agrees With New Studies Explaining The Difference In Skin Aging Between Men and Women (amazon) (shopzilla)


      Park Ridge, IL (PRWEB) July 15, 2013

      If you put one male and one female right next to each other, you may notice that the majority of men will look much younger than the women.

      It is well known that women may live longer than men. It is also believed that men do not age faster than women but simply get frailer. Women have lived longer than men in every era and in many different countries. In the 80s in the USA, the estimated life expectancy at birth was 77.5 years for women and 70 years for men. But do women age significantly slower than men?

      One area where age has a major impact is our skin. Researchers show that mens skin ages differently than womens skin. If you put a same-aged female and male next to each other, you may notice that the male will usually look younger than the female. This is because men secrete slightly more sebum or oil on the skin than women, making them sweat more and allowing them to produce more hair. Individuals with oily skin commonly have thicker skin layers, enabling them to store more fat and water in the skins papillary layer and nutrients in the subcutaneous layer (also known as the Water Tank Layer). In comparison, a person with dry or dehydrated skin will have thinner skin layers and is therefore unable to store mass deposits. We all have the same amount of layers in our skin. The difference is the size of the layers varies for different people with different skin types. Mens skin is actually 25% thicker than womens skin. This is a why mens skin may look younger womens skin.

      One of the reasons women may live longer than men are their advantages in terms of cardiovascular disease such as heart attack and stroke. Studies show that women usually develop these problems in their 70s or 80s, which is 10 years later than men. Men usually develop these diseases in their 50s or 60s. For a long time, researchers believed that these differences were due to estrogen. However, recent studies have actually shown that this may not be the case after all.

      Although researchers have supported allegations on what type of skin may age quicker, ones skin is also affected by numerous external factors, such as the environment and a daily skin care routine. Beneath the surface, skin is affected by a more permanent factor – a patients genes.

      In either men or women, the best way to slow skin aging is to be sure to use a sunblock with an SPF of at least 30 every time you step outside. This habit will help reduce the aging effects of the harmful UV rays to your skin, notes Dr. Speron a board certified plastic surgeon and consumer advocate. Men and women have different skin properties but sunblock, proper nutrition, regular exercise and getting a good nights sleep are vitally important for both.

      Dr. Speron is the founder and medical director of Dr. Speron Plastic Surgery. He is board certified with the American Board of Plastic Surgery and an active member of both the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS).

        New Studies Examining Positive Connections Between Diet Rich in Wild Blueberries and Better Brain Health (amazon) (shopzilla)


        Portland, ME (PRWEB) May 10, 2013

        What started 10 years ago with a few studies looking into the impact of blueberry consumption and Alzheimers Disease has led to more research relating to Parkinsons Disease, cognitive performance in children, balance and hearing.

        During this time, researchers have learned a tremendous amount about the powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties in blueberries. Now, they want to learn more and are launching new studies into the health benefits of the naturally occurring compounds found in blueberries polyphenols, flavonoids and anthocyanins.

        Previous studies have shown the potential for compounds in blueberries to impact memory and mood in older adults, as well as the function of compounds in blueberries to enable housekeeper cells in the brain to remove biochemical debris, which is believed to contribute to the decline of mental functioning with age.

        Below are some of the many brain-related studies currently underway looking into how compounds in blueberries can help improve brain health and protect against other diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other chronic illnesses.

        Parkinsons Disease

        Parkinsons Disease is a degenerative disease that affects the area of the brain that controls movement, and researchers at Purdue University and North Carolina State University are looking for ways polyphenol compounds in Wild Blueberries may slow or help prevent Parkinsons Disease.

        Hundreds of thousands of people are impacted by Parkinsons Disease in the U.S. alone. The potential positive impact of discovering a link between compounds in Wild Blueberries and Parkinsons is huge, noted Mary Ann Lila, Director of the Plants for Human Health Institute at North Carolina State and a leading researcher in this area.

          Studies Associate Alzheimer to The Declining Sex Hormones With Oxidative Stress and Inflammation as The Key Players (amazon) (shopzilla)

          Miami, Florida (PRWEB) June 22, 2012

          A newly published study that conducted a study of male sex hormones and an inflammatory, immune mechanism (TNF-Alpha) found that men with Alzheimer Disease (AD) had lower levels of free sex hormones (testosterone) than non-AD men and, further, states a positive association between the parent hormone to testosterone (LH) and inflammation.

          Agreeing with this study, Nutri-Med Logic Corp adds that while the sex hormones (testosterone or estrogen) are well known for their roles in reproduction, but a large body of evidence suggest these hormones to also confer neuro-protective function in the cases of elderly AD, in part by anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory mechanisms and that the rise in their parent hormone LH (Leutinizing) is suggested to be an attempt in normalizing their declining levels due to the biological aging; women being more disposed due to the abrupt decline in their estrogen levels after menopause. (1, 2)

          While inflammation is a known risk factor for AD, but studies also support the position that increased levels of oxidative stress have been found in AD patients and same to be strongly associated with amyloid deposits. Amyloids (Beta) are molecules that are implicated in the development and the progression of AD.

          Moreover, while both testosterone and estrogen confer anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties on the neurons but the inherent protection against inflammation and oxidative stress is through the bodys internal anti-oxidant defense and its ability to efficiently resolve inflammation.

          The cellular anti-oxidant defense is the ability of cells to counter oxidative stress (redox) and, according to The Department of Internal Medicine of University of Miami, the cellular redox is regulated by three systems, two of which are also regulated by an internal anti-oxidant called glutathione. (3)

          Like the sex hormones, glutathione levels decrease by age and, thus naturally, such decline places a greater burden on any available molecule to counter oxidative stress, including but not limited to the declining sex hormones.

          Overwhelming number of studies have shown that glutathione level increases through dietary supplementation of a nutrient called R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, a potent anti-oxidant by itself.

          The natural resolution of inflammation in the nervous system is achieved through Resolvins Series D, a by-product of DHA Omega-3 fatty acids.

          DHA Omega-3 fatty acids also produce Neuro-Protectin D-1, molecules that confer natural protection on the cells of nervous system (neurons).

          While hormone replacement therapy is always an available option to increase estrogen and testosterone but a diet that would incorporate anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant nutrients is always essential and prudent.

          In conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp. agreeing with new study, adds that while the decline in male sex hormones and inflammation are implicated in the development and progression of Alzheimer in men, but oxidative stress is also a key player, women always carrying a higher risk due to the abrupt estrogen decline at menopause.

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

          Nutri-Med Logic Corp is also a producer of dietary supplements such as a Pharmaceutical Grade R-Alpha 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;
