Exercise Proven (Again) to Reverse Aging

Buck Institute recent anti-aging study says:

"The vast majority of aging studies are done in worms, fruit flies and mice; this study was done in humans," said Melov. "It's particularly rewarding to be able to scientifically validate something practical that people can do now to improve their health and the quality of their lives, as well as knowing that they are doing something which is actually reversing aspects of the aging process."

1. Heathy diet
2. Exercise
3. High Quality Supplements

Your recipe for a long and healthy life.

American Analytical Chemistry Lab Information, Customer Feedback

A customer wrote to me concerned about a post he read on a website about one of the analytical testing labs I use. The post is apparently an attempt to somehow cast doubt on our product quality. Let me set the record straight:

1. AACL is a FDA inspected and credentialed laboratory. That is a fact.
2. Attempting to infer that the quality of our finished product could somehow be compromised by the choice of testing lab is absurd.

Relentless Improvement has shaken up supplement suppliers that only give lip service to quality. But I am shocked that we would come under attack by those unwilling to document their product quality (Isn't it crazy they would attack us for providing a higher-quality product?)

I have learned that the post purporting to present readers information about our testing lab is by an individual posing as a physician online. Not only is this poster a fraud (no medical license can be found when searching the state physician database) he is in reality associated with a competing business that sells supplements!

The Internet message boards are often populated by people hiding behind false identities with hidden agendas. As a careful consumer you must be aware all is not at it may first appear. That is the case here, disparaging posts by a competitor hiding behind their dark cloak of (perceived) anonymity.

I challenge you to shine the light of truth on these roaches. Call them out. And let them know how you feel about their slimy tactics by boycotting their businesses.

If anyone has concerns that I have not addressed, I am always available by telephone during business hours for further discussion.

Take care and have a good weekend.
Pete

Oh, I almost forgot. My customers comments to all this? Read below:

"Hi Pete,

Fair enough! As long as the lab is fully FDA certified, that is good enough for me. I've checked out your site, I've read your blog, and I am impressed. I can honestly say that this was the deciding factor when choosing to do business with your company. The other sites seem somewhat shady, while your site and manner of presentation is forth right, and educational to the customers. I appreciate the level of quality you strive for, and I appreciate your invitation to discuss the matter over the phone. Although that is not necessary, as your email addresses everything, the offer you provide to discuss the matter clearly shows that you give a damn.

I wish you continued success with your business Pete. I've had all my orders FAST, and I look forward to continue my patronage with your store!

Thanks again !!"

EGCG - Green Tea, More Good News (and New RI Product!)

The good news on EGCG Green tea Extract just keeps coming.

Tea 'healthier' drink than water
.

"They found clear evidence that drinking three to four cups of tea a day can cut the chances of having a heart attack.

Some studies suggested tea consumption protected against cancer, although this effect was less clear-cut.

Other health benefits seen included protection against tooth plaque and potentially tooth decay, plus bone strengthening.

Dr Ruxton said: "Drinking tea is actually better for you than drinking water. Water is essentially replacing fluid. Tea replaces fluids and contains antioxidants so it's got two things going for it."

News you already knew:
Green tea extract 'is cancer aid'
Green tea compound Alzheimer hope
Green tea 'may protect the heart'

The challenge for you, finding an ultra high-quality EGCG Green Tea Extract. Did you know most EGCG green tea supplements are produced using a chloroform extraction method? UGH! Not good because it leaves chloroform residues. Relentlessimprovement.com is a few weeks away from introducing a certified chloroform free, ultra high-potency EGCG green tea extract product.

Stay tuned as we continue to lead the way to high quality, safer, more effective supplements and vitamins.

Lipoic Acid Explored As Anti-aging Compound

Some great news being released today. Tory Hagen (bio), a noted well-respected researcher was quoted in this article:

"Our studies have shown that mice supplemented with lipoic acid have a cognitive ability, behavior, and genetic expression of almost 100 detoxification and antioxidant genes that are comparable to that of young animals," Hagen said. "They aren't just living longer, they are living better – and that's the goal we're after."

and

"We never really expected such a surprising range of benefits from one compound," Hagen said. "This is really unprecedented, and we're pretty excited about it."

RelentlessImprovement.com is your lipoic specialist due to our close association with US lipoic manufacturer Geronova Research. We offer the most advanced lipoic products of any distributor in the world.



Combining Carnitine Plus (acetyl-l-carnitine and carnitine orotate) and lipoic acid supplements in your regimen is a proven anti-aging strategy.

Stay tuned, much more good news coming on lipoics!

Carnosine Eye Drops- Customer Feedback

Email from a customer today regarding our carnosine eye drop:

"Pete,

I think you will be interested in the following:

A year ago, I had an eye exam. My ophthalmologist indicated that my left eye had weakened significantly and I had the beginning stages of cataract formation. I found the Russian research on the internet and discovered that you have the drops as a private label product. I have ordered various products from you over the past couple of years.

I was scheduled to go for a follow-up at six months but did not do that because I wanted a longer period of time to use the NAC drops to see if I could avoid IOL implants.

Incredible results - No cataract formation and my left eye has improved significantly. The Dr. was extremely surprised. Perhaps the NAC drops worked better because I am taking various anti-aging supplements. Of particular impact could be benfotamine and (a pyridoximine) product I have been using due to a pre-diabetic condition. I did not mention the NAC drops to the Dr. because they see this stuff as "snake oil". Obviously, I will continue to use your NAC drops.

Regards,
Anon by request"

Carnosine eye drops
from Relentless Improvement are documented purity, sterility and potency.

Theralac Probiotic / Prebiotic - Professionally Recommended.

A high-quality, potent probiotic is esseential to good health. I have been convinced of this fact for years. The bugs colonizing your gut are vital to proper digestion and to obtain the nutriton form the foods that you eat.

Quotes below from a write-up on Prevention.com:

"Probiotics will someday be recognized as "a new essential food group," predicts Gary Huffnagle, PhD, a professor of internal medicine at the University of Michigan Medical School and a prominent probiotics researcher. "I believe we'll eventually have research-based minimum daily requirements for probiotics," he says, "just as we do for many vitamins and minerals."

and

"A recent analysis by independent tester ConsumerLab.com found that out of 13 products tested, only 8 delivered at least 1 billion live organisms per serving--a generally accepted minimum."

We offer the Theralac probiotic (which is mentioned in the story as a recommended product) as our only probiotic offering. In my opinion it is simply the very best.

Theralac's 20 billion CFU/capsule are guaranteed through expiration.

The makers of Theralac also offer Enzalase™ Enzyme Master Supplement. This is a smart addition to probiotic therapy.

Theralac and Enzalase are not sold in stores.

Amazing- From China to Panama, a Trail of Poisoned Medicine

NY Times this weekend had an incredible story.

"Shipping records showed the contents to be 99.5 percent pure glycerin.

It would be months and many deaths later before that certification was discovered to be pure fiction."

"The mystery had been solved. The barrels labeled glycerin turned out to contain poison."

This on top of the wheat gluten being contaminated by melamine story. If you are still not convinced of the necessity of 3rd party testing, you never will be.

While I strive to keep Relentless Improvement vitamins and supplements price competitive, my first and foremost concern is quality. That is why ALL our RI brand products are certified by an FDA approved analytical lab.

It is your choice- do you invest in a documented quality product from Relentless Improvement? Or do you roll the dice with your health?

Pete

Thanks to Dave Jensen's great "Sham vs Wham" Health Insider blog for letting me know about this story.

DHA- Protect Your Brain From Alzheimer's?

Pleanty of evidence already out there on the benefits of eating oily fish and using Omega-3 Supplements. Another story out this week says:

"In Alzheimer's disease, lesions known as "plaques" and "tangles" form in the brain, due to the abnormal clumping of two proteins called beta-amyloid and tau. The mouse study found that a diet rich in the fatty acid DHA might interfere with this process"

and

"The researchers also discovered that DHA may confer its benefit by lowering levels of an enzyme needed to generate beta-amyloid."

I have always been a big believer in fish oils and offer several molecularly distilled products:

EPA/DHA w/Olive and Sesame Lignans
(LEF)
Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega
Nordic Naturals EPA
Max DHA (AOR)
Salmon Essentials with Astaxanthin (Mera Pharmaceuticals, one of my favorites)
