R-Lipoic Acid As Protective Against Neurodegeneration

We are just starting to get a trickle of what I believe will be a flood of positive research on potent r-lipoic acid. Brand new research documents protective effects of "super" antioxidant r-lipoic acid.

A quote from the PubMed article:
"To investigate the mechanisms of neurodegeneration in this model, we studied cognitive function, hippocampal neuronal apoptosis and neurogenesis, and peripheral oxidative stress biomarkers and also the protective effects of the antioxidant R-alpha-lipoic acid. "

And the result:
"A concomitant treatment with lipoic acid ameliorated cognitive dysfunction and neurodegeneration in the hippocampus and also reduced peripheral oxidative damage by decreasing malondialdehyde and increasing T-AOC and T-SOD, without an effect on GSH-Px."

Remember - Unstabilized r-lipoic is worthless! Only GeroNova Research manufactures a stabilized, natural sustained release r-lipoic acid with the addition of super-potent r-dihydrolipoic acid. I will not mince words - Anything else and you are wasting your money.

I take 1 R-PLUS and 1 Mito-GOLD in the AM before breakfast, and then again before dinner for a very generous 600mg of r-lipoic/r-dihydrolipoic acid daily. Along with 1500 mg of Acetyl-l-Carnitine, and I have never felt better, younger, more energized in my life.

What are you waiting for anyhow? If are thinking of the cost or expense, I suggest you re-frame your thoughts to consider these products an investment. You are investing in your body and your life.

Cheers,
Pete

R-lipoic New Study Diabetic Retinopathy

Yes this study is one of those elusive R-lipoic specific studies. And the results are unequivocal.

To Quote:
"CONCLUSIONS/INTERPRETATION: R-(+)-alpha-lipoic acid prevents microvascular damage through normalised pathways downstream of mitochondrial overproduction of ROS, and preserves pericyte coverage of retinal capillaries, which may provide additional endothelial protection."

And:
"R-(+)-alpha-lipoic acid treatment reduced oxidative stress, normalised NFkappaB activation and angiopoietin-2 expression, and reduced vascular endothelial growth factor in the diabetic retina by 43% (p<0.0001)."

For you glasses and pocket protector types, this is the link to the full text article.

And lucky us! We have GeroNova Research to thank for developing America's only stabilized, sustained release R-Lipoic acid.

Customer Sulbutiamine Comment

Short and sweet, I loved it and had to post it here:

"Just a little FYI: Sulbutiamine is freaking awesome stuff.. "

Hehe, I have to agree. if you are seeking long-duration energy and a beneficial memory enhancing effect, this is the way to go. I find 3 capsules is great and I have sometime used 4 capsules for enhanced effect.

Some people report a libido enhancing effect. I have to agree with that too.

My personal thought is to use this product approx 4 weeks on, 1 week off just to let your body clear. No studies that say this, just my thoughts at the moment.

Cheers!

SalmonEssentials SUPER SALE. Short Expiry Inventory Blowout

SalmonEssentials with Astafactor Astaxanthin. I have limited supplies with short expiry - May 06. This is a one time chance to stock up at a special price: 1-3 bottles only $21.95 each or 4 or more only $15.95 ea. Yikes!

If you keep it and use it past expiry there is no problem other than the astaxanthin begins to lose potency. You still have the benefits of a molecularly distilled Omega-3 Salmon Oil supplement.

This is the same Omega-3 I use personally. Good stuff.

Grab it and growl.

Poking At Protandim. Again

Thanks to my dear friend for pointing out this article in The Scientist to me today.

From the article:
" The product is a long way from legitimacy when it comes to cellular aging, a process Protandim claims to affect "from the inside out." "

You may remember from my previous posts that I have not been friendly towards protandim (and searched for as probandum, protandum, pro tandem) because it's single claim to fame was a quick appearance on PrimeTime Live. People love to see a product on TV, and have no idea that employing and paying a public relations firm is what makes those appearances happen!

Don't be sheep folks.

Personally I am staking my anti-aging bet on GeroNova Research's potent, sustained release R-Lipoic and ALCAR combo that I take daily.

Cheers,
Pete

Marketing - Viral, Guerilla, Affiliate, Whatever. Our Statement

Relentless Improvement markets primarily by word of mouth, one happy customer tells another.

We also use Google AdWords (so-called paid search) to target specific keyword search terms. We use press releases (not lately, too busy to write one!) We use search engine optimization to help organic ranking on the search engines. We publicly sponsor several Immortality Institute forums and pay for dynamic banner ads on MPrize associated sites as part of our sponsorship arrangement with them. Once in a blue moon we send an email newsletter or update.

Oh- and my blog, what you are reading now! Yup, this is marketing! And there is no doubt who I am, and the business I represent.

Some things we don't do because I believe they are inherently deceptive, and in my opinion, fraudulent:

We do NOT post under a variety of assumed names to internet forums. Nor have we ever paid or otherwise compensated anyone to do so on our behalf. We have never had an affiliate arrangement with any business or individual. We have never in any way compensated any person or business to represent Relentless Improvement in any form of marketing that is not obviously coming from us. And I wouldn't in a million years participate in multi-level marketing schemes!

I hope my position is ambiguously clear.

Marketing can be clean, clear and honest. Or it can be based on deception. Which tactic is used tells you all you need to know about the people running the business.

I want to earn your business based on the quality and effectiveness of our products and the level of service that we provide to you. We want to establish a mutually beneficial, long-term relationship with a select group of clients. Pretty damn simple philosophy.

A business based on deception, is one that will risk your life in the decisions that they make. Think about it.

Happy Weekend!

7 Day Program To Get Smart!

I found this article in the UK Guardian very interesting. Makes a lot of sense to me- exercise your mind, feed it brain food and reap the rewards. An excerpt from the article:

"THE GET SMARTER GUIDE

Saturday
Brush your teeth with your 'wrong' hand and take a shower with your eyes closed.

Sunday
Do the crossword or Sudoku puzzle in your Sunday paper and take a brisk walk.

Monday
Have oily fish for dinner, and either cycle, walk or take the bus into work.

Tuesday
Select unfamiliar words from the dictionary and work them into conversations.

Wednesday
Go to yoga, Pilates or a meditation class, and talk to someone you don't know.

Thursday
Take a different route to work; watch Countdown or Brainteaser.

Friday
Avoid caffeine or alcohol; memorise your shopping list."

Once you have the basics in place, then you can add high-purity supplements for additional benefits.

Ortho-Core
Ortho-Mind or the sustained release R-Lipoic and ALCAR combo
Sulbutiamine
Aniracetam or Piracetam
Pyritinol
Centrophenoxine
Idebenone

Enjoy your body and brain - make the most of your opportunities in life!

Pete

It Is A Mirage, All Just a Mirage...

The internet and its inhabitants and participants amaze me on a regular basis. Full of the prey: wide-eyed unquestioning believers along with the hunters: the hucksters and their sycophants, shysters, liars, posers and all manner of vermin.

Because the ability for critical thought is so lacking in our society, people will believe just about any line of bullsh*t presented to them by total strangers.

The sheep amaze me too, in their sheer determination to be sheared.

What is the answer?

Disclosure.

People you deal with must be accountable for their claims, and their identity must be public.

Because otherwise, you are simply prey.

My identity has always been totally public as a businessman, because I have nothing to hide, and indeed have much to be proud of.

My interests are also blatently obvious: I own Relentless Improvement, a premium quality nutritional supplement company. So, you, now being informed, can generate a more educated opinion about the thoughts I put forth.

If we do not have the truth, we have nothing.

Oh for the record? Relentless Improvement has never paid for any kind or manner of advisor regarding the supplement business. If somebody is claiming to ever have been an "advisor" ask them to produce a 1099-MISC from me.

Honesty and integrity are everything. Nothing else matters. Once it is lost, it is gone forever. No matter the pain of the truth, it must be put forth.

Happy Weekend,
Pete

Love Is The Drug. Seriously...

The Economist, as reputable as publications come, has a wonderful story about love's effects on humans from a neurochemistry perspective. A fun and very intersting read, hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Quickie Quote:

"Research is also shedding light on some of the more extreme forms of sexual behaviour. And, controversially, some utopian fringe groups see such work as the doorway to a future where love is guaranteed because it will be provided chemically, or even genetically engineered from conception. "

Theralac Probiotic and Lyme Disease

This just in to me from Therabiotics Inc, makers of Theralac probiotic/prebiotic:

High Quality Probiotics – Vital for Lyme Disease

The antibiotics used to treat Lyme disease are a double-edged sword, as they fight the pathogenic Lyme bacteria they also reduce the number of beneficial, probiotic bacteria in the intestinal tract. Consequently, diarrhea, Candida yeast, C. difficile infections, intestinal pain, and poor nutrient absorption often result. Probiotics re-establish the beneficial bacteria and normalize bowel movements as they help restore intestinal health.

There are many probiotic products on the market and quality varies significantly; five vital criteria are required to satisfy the stringent requirements of the Lyme patient:

VITAL CRITERIA #1

Multiple probiotic species with strain designations must be present. Multiple species cover the entire intestinal tract. Lactobacillus species work best in the small intestine, Bifidobacterium colonize the colon. Example: Lactobacillus acidophilus is a well known probiotic species but many strains exist and effectiveness is strain dependent. Make sure strain designations follow all species names on the label.

VITAL CRITERIA #2

Potency must exceed 10 billion CFU/capsule. The human intestinal tract contains 100 trillion bacteria, it takes many billions of probiotics to effectively colonize the intestinal tract. Make sure each probiotic species is guaranteed separately through expiration date and the total exceeds 10 billion CFU.

VITAL CRITERIA #3

Acid-proof formulations are critical to insure delivery of the probiotic bacteria through the stomach’s harsh acidity. Most enteric coatings don’t work, look for patented “acid-proof” formulations.

VITAL CRITERIA #4

One or more prebiotics should be present to stimulate the probiotics after they enter the intestinal tract. Prebiotics are special nutrients that selectively stimulate the growth and colonization of probiotics.

VITAL CRITERIA #5

Look for published clinical studies that specifically cite the probiotic strains listed on the products label. Check website for references.

THERALAC® is a high potency probiotic that meets the above criteria and has a proven record helping people with Lyme disease. Currently THERALAC® is recommended by leading Lyme disease specialists throughout the USA.


Pete says: When potency and effectiveness matter, your only choice is Theralac. I have used many products from names you would instantly recognise, but nothing matches Theralac.

Eating Well... Google Gets It




I see a theme emerging in my postings this week!

This article (be sure to click the pictures too!) in today's San Francisco Chronicle talks about how Google employees eat well, healthy, and best of all free. Every day, week in and week out. Love 'em or hate 'em, Google is a very progressive company and willing to stand conventional wisdom on its ear.

Hopefully other companies will follow in their footsteps both ethically and philosophically.

What you eat DOES matter. Garbage in equals garbage out. Supplements are no substitute for healthy eating habits.

Pete

More Feedback

"Hi Pete,

Wanted to let you know that we LOVE the Theralac [probiotic].
Really great stuff. My husband is still trying to decide on the Sulbutiamine (he's going to try 600mg tomm. & has noticed an effect on 400mg), but I already love it at 400mg. I have suffered from chronic fatigue (am on disability for ) & I have noticed a dramatic improvement on my cognition& energy level! Now if it can just keep up. Thanks so much for getting this.

Look forward to doing business with you soon!
A Customer"

Pete comment: I am still using Sulbutiamine at 600mg once daily, and sometimes do 800mg. Incredible for cognition, energy.

Had a second bout of "stomach flu" this weekend, I immediately took Theralac to recolonize with good bugs, and I was right back to normal. Awesome.

Cheers,
Pete
