Wrinkled Cell Nuclei and Aging. The Key?

From this Nature.com article:
" A new study shows that cells from people over the age of 80 tend to have specific problems with the nucleus that young children's cells do not. The elderly nucleus loses its pert, rounded shape and becomes warped and wrinkled."

This is why I use the natural sustained release R-Lipoic Acid and ALCAR combo, because I believe I achieve DNA and enzyme repair at the cellular level. "Unwrinkling".

From the article: "In cells taken from the elderly, the nuclei tend to be wrinkled up, the DNA accumulates damage, and the levels of some proteins that package up DNA go askew, the team reports in Science"

and most intriguing: " "You can take these old cells and make them young again".

Maybe that explains my high energy level in spite of me being a middle-aged guy?

The question for you is, are you willing to begin investing in your longevity and vitality?

Cheers!

Customer Feedback

From an email today from one of my international customers:

"btw: you know iherb.com? They now move to papanature.com and i ordered from their new website. nothing big, just a bit of whey protein plus a chinese herb that does inhibit mitochondria peroxidation plus dhea (50mg a mistake i think now :-) ) but unfortunately i never got a tracking number and it's more then a month and the main reason for ordering was stevia which i'm out of and i don't get that damn package... maybe the new company name was not yet ok with the customs and they didn't like
the dhea? Who knows. Well, i get no meaningful responses from them and i even called but to no avail... aw, why doesn't everyone do business your way eh?"

Hmmm, yes, why not?

A fine time to present my favorite quote:
The bitterness of poor value remains long after the sweetness of low price has been forgotten.

More Probiotic Research - New Study From Canada's McMaster University

If you are reluctant to believe in the benefits of highly-bioavailable, high-potency probiotics, then take the time to read this short article from BBC News.

To quote: "The researchers believe that probiotics probably compete for space with harmful bacteria, helping to dampen down inflammatory responses.

They say their use offers a potentially promising approach to the management of intestinal problems caused by stress.

Professor Alastair Forbes, medical director of the digestive health charity Core and an expert in gastroenterology at University College Hospital, London, said the study presented a "reasonable hypothesis"."

I only offer one probiotic/prebiotic product simply because I believe it is the best available - Theralac by Therabiotics. I have researched and tried the popular brands and found Theralac to be superior in every way. Its patented formula gets the beneficial bacteria past the deadly stomach acid and into your gut where they can work their magic. Sure, you can buy a cheaper product, and you will get your money's worth too.

Cheers!

Week-Ending Customer Feedback

I wanted to share some feedback I received today:

"I really can't get over the the truly profound results I derive from the supplements I've discovered through RelentlessImprovement.com

Ortho-Core is amazing, and along with the astaxanthin and (of course) R-Alpha Lipoic, I am coming out of the gate stronger than ever this season. In the past, recovery time used to be a huge obstacle for me (along with joint inflammation) and would oftentimes interfere with my training schedule (especially when recovering from tournaments), but I've been able to reach new heights in my conditioning and I credit this mostly to you! So, once again, thank you for your hard work and superior product line. Please, keep up the excellent work!

And while I'm gushing--also wanted to thank you for the interesting posts and articles through your blog."

Heck- I have been riddled with guilt for not posting more blog information the past few weeks. I suppose my excuse is that I prefer higher quality posts as opposed to just a bunch of "filler".

Nothing makes me happier than having heathy, satisfied customers.

Happy Weekend!

Eat Your Veggies, But Ortho-Core Is Still A Wise Choice

We all know how important it is to eat fresh vegatables, but what you may not know is many now lack the nutrients they once did!

This article makes some eye-opening observations including: "data collected by the U.S. government show that the nutritional content of America's vegetables and fruits has declined during the past 50 years -- in some cases dramatically."

Why? It is suspected that:

"the trend in agriculture toward encouraging crops that grow the fastest and biggest is a reason for the decline"

Why risk deficiencies? I don't want to, that is why I use AOR's Ortho Core daily. LEF's multi-vitamin powder and tablets are another good choice.

New Study- Good night's sleep boosts long-term memory

I have posted similar studies before, if you want to boost your brain power and memory, you have to start with basics.

To quote from this article: "During a good night's rest, memories of recent events are shifted from one part of the brain to another, a process that is crucial for developing long-term memories, according to a report published today in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences."

1% Acetyl-L-Carnosine Eye Drops Are in Stock

The rare, elusive and very effective 1% Acetyl-L-Carnosine Eye Drops (also known as simply acetyl carnosine eye drops or carnosine eye drops) are finally back in stock. We have customers using these to dissolve cataracts and so far the results have been excellent.

My customers tell me that after approximately 4-6 months of daily use at 3-4 drops per eye, the cataracts will "dissolve". Pretty amazing that a natural amino acid can restore clear vision and avoid a costly surgery.

But we can only sell them as "Lubricating Eye Drops" otherwise the FDA considers them to be a new drug.

Our drops are manufactured in a cGMP pharmaceutical facility and have an independent Certificate of Anaylsis to document their Acetyl-L-Carnosine content (1.12%).

Bacteria- Best Friends, Worst Enemy. This Is A MUST READ.

The story I have linked to below is a MUST READ for everybody!

This article from Discover is a must read. Grab a coffee and put your phone on hold, it will take a few minutes to read. It is definitely worth your time investment - believe me!

To quote:
" For every cell in your body, you support 10 bacterial cells that make vitamins, trigger hormones, and may even influence how fat you are. Guess what happens to them when you pop penicillin?."

and:
"We know that our environment affects our health to an enormous degree," Gordon says. "And our microbiota are our most intimate environment by far."

This story is a MUST READ.

I have posted before about my belief in PRO-biotics. It is critical for overall health and well being that our bodies are colonized by "good" bacteria. That is why I use and sell the most effective probiotic in the world- Therabiotics Inc. product: Theralac. I have used the popular probiotics, and none compare to Theralac. Want to feel better? Make the investment- Try a bottle TODAY.

Cheers!
