Cholesterol Solution

So what are these compounds, and why hasn’t the doctor told me about them? Well, there are a couple of them. The first is Pantethine. Pantethine is a compound in your body that is created from vitamin B-5. Although your body produces it through enzyme metabolism, supplementation of Pantethine has been shown to significantly improve your cholesterol levels. As your body uses Pantethine, it slows down cholesterol production in your liver. It also increases the rate at which your metabolism uses fats. Because of this effect, Pantethine has been clinically demonstrated to increase your level of good cholesterol (HDL) while lower the level of bad cholesterol (LDL) in your body.

Where is the proof? Japan has actually been using Pantethine for over 30 years. There are a number of clinical trials that demonstrate its effectiveness on cholesterol levels, as well as improved liver function.

In addition to Pantethine, the mineral …

Green Pharmacy

The Green Pharmacy has also been translated into many different languages, so no matter what part of the world you live in the Green Pharmacy should be available. Hopefully eventually we will see doctors and pharmacists read the book and perhaps even use the information to help their patients. Wouldn’t that be a wonderful day? One day “green pharmaceuticals” may be part of daily life.

There are several reasons why interest has peaked with herbal medicines. There is more fear of synthetic pharmaceuticals and the unknown factors associated with those drugs. We worry about the dramatic side effects as well. In just ten years, over half the drugs that were approved by the FDA have been recalled because of unanticipated side effects.

There is another reason for the growing interest in green pharmaceuticals. People are beginning to understand that all living herbs contain thousands of chemicals, and when you choose …

L-Methionine

Methionine is lipotropic. That is, it is a chemical substance that helps the liver to process fats (choline, inosol, and betaine). It prevents fat from accumulating in the liver and maintains normal liver function.

It is used to make creatine that is naturally found mostly in muscle tissue. This gives the muscles the energy to move. Athletic performance is boosted in short and intense workouts. Creatine is necessary for all muscle function. It supports heart and circulatory systems.

Methionine is very important for the development of healthy collagen. This helps to make skin, nails, and connective tissues. It helps to reduce inflammatory histamines in the body.

Conditions that may benefit from treatment with methionine include arthritis and chronic allergies. AIDS, pancreatitis, Parkinson’s, urinary tract infections and some forms of depression may also be treated with methionine as a supplement.

Antioxidate Supplement List

Antioxidants are a classification of several organic substances, such as Vitamins A, C, and E, selenium, and carotenoids. These substances are formed together to create the name “antioxidant,” and are effective in helping to prevent cancer, stroke, and heart disease. At the molecular and cellular levels, antioxidants serve to deactivate certain particles known as free radicals. In humans, free radicals usually come in the form of oxygen. The oxygen wants to be oxidized and this process can be carcinogenic. Free radicals are the natural by-products of many processes within your cells. They are also created by radiation, cigarette smoke, and other harmful environmental factors.

One of the biggest uses of antioxidants for bodybuilders is its role on the metabolism. In the body, energy is produced safely in the presence of antioxidant intake, which are able to be neutralize any excess of free radicals. Free radicals destroy muscle tissue in search …

Prescription Drug Coverage

Most people obtain their prescription drug coverage as a part of their overall medical insurance plan. Most medical plans include some form of prescription drug coverage, and some states actually require employers to include this coverage in the medical plans that they offer to employees. Whether purchased independently or in combination with other coverage, the available types of coverage are similar.

Traditional, or fee-for-service coverage is the most common form of prescription drug coverage. This type usually has an annual deductible amount in addition to the amount of the premiums. In general, the lower the premiums, the higher this deductible amount will be. This type of policy pays a percentage of your overall drug bill once the deductible has been met. This percentage is usually around 80%. This type of coverage usually requires you to pay for your prescriptions up front, and you are reimbursed by filing claims. Another aspect …

Copper Gluconate

A book we recently read on copper stated that copper is “one of the most important blood antioxidants and prevents the rancidity of poly-unsaturated fatty acids.”

Copper can also help keep cell membranes healthy and is “active in the storage and release of iron to form hemoglobin for red blood cells.”

Copper acts as an immune system booster, and it also plays a role in keeping nerves and bones healthy.

More potential benefits of copper gluconate include: helping reduce high cholesterol levels in humans, osteoporosis, wound healing, cardiac arrhythmia, hypoglycaemia, peripheral vascular disease, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis to name just a few.

HGH

When considering purchasing an HGH product or starting HGH therapy, follow the guidelines below to get the most from your purchase and avoid getting ripped off.

Avoid Unrealistic Claims – If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Remember, the FDA does not yet regulate HGH. This enables sellers to be more liberal with their claims by choosing their wording carefully or by using fine print disclaimers. If you see a product offering 20 lbs of muscle mass in 30 days without lifting weights, or saying that you’ll look 10 years younger instantly, please use your common sense. HGH treatments usually take at least 3 months to show results. Anything telling you otherwise is just hype. If it looks like a sales pitch, it’s best to move on.

Take a Hard Look at the Company – Who are you buying from? How long has the company been …

Lecithin

Many doctors consider lecithin or phosphatidylcholine a valuable nerve-building nutrient as a treatment for memory loss or impairment. Some say it is a major factor to building and repairing the structural components of brain cells.

Lecithin is said to be one of the major components of cell membrane which is the thin semi-permeable layer that envelopes the surfaces of cells in the brain and the body itself. Lecithin also provides for the constant regeneration of the phospholipid-rich membranes of the brain.

Lecithin has been widely used to help people who are prone to heart attacks and strokes, and even degenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s Disease and Parkinson’s to help reduce the effects of these Depilating diseases.

In 1998, the US Food and Drug Administration named Lecithin as GRAS, or Generally Regarded as Safe.
The effects of Lecithin seem to go beyond even the commercial side of things to include health …

Tribal Healthcare

Tribal Hospitals – Links to nutrition

Most tribal hospitals can prove to be lifesavers with respect to the life threatening health problems faced by tribals in the villages in Maharashtra and elsewhere in India. The single biggest factor that leads to malnutrition is the lack of proper food and nutrition. Part of the problem is also the lack of awareness regarding the importance of balanced diet and other daily dietary and nutritional requirements. For this, perhaps, if the tribal hospitals in these regions can be equipped with a nutrition rehabilitation unit, then a very critical source of this life threatening issue can be curbed. The nutrition rehabilitation units could help address the nutritional imbalances in the daily food intake of the tribal population suffering from malnourishment. The purpose of these nutrition units could be to dole out special therapeutic foods that contain macronutrients such as proteins, fats and carbohydrates and …
