New International Shipping Option- Lower Cost

Live outside the USA, don't care about tracking, and want the lowest possible shipping cost? Ok, you got it! Earlier today I enabled a third international shipping option: "First-Class Mail International".

This joins our tried and true "Priority" and "Express" options.

There are weight restrictions with the new service level; item weight max of a bit over 3 lbs (NOT kg). Don't worry, our shopping cart automatically knows your order weight and will only offer available options.

Like anything in life there are trade-offs, NO tracking, and delivery time/customs clearance is currently an unknown (but have heard it is not bad).

The price is right though, place an order in our system and see for yourself.

Full details can be found in our Simple Shipping Policy.

If you are the anxious type, the previous option for "Express" is the way to go, with full point to point tracking.

Lipoic Acid Could Reduce Atherosclerosis, Weight Gain

New research paper out on Lipoic Acid.

The results "strongly suggest that lipoic acid supplementation may be useful as an inexpensive but effective intervention strategy . . . reducing known risk factors for the development of atherosclerosis and other inflammatory vascular diseases in humans."

"Also of considerable interest, Frei said, is the apparent role of lipoic acid supplementation in reducing weight gain. It appears to have this effect both through appetite suppression, an enhanced metabolic rate, and – at least in laboratory animals – has been shown to stimulate higher levels of physical activity, which again would increase caloric expenditure and further reduce weight."

There is a lot more information at the link and you owe it to yourself to read up on this.

As you know Relentless Improvement has long offered the most technically advanced lipoic acids in the world from Geronova Research. This is a direct link to to our full line up: Lipoic Acid

You need to become a member of the World Transhumanist Association today. Then, contribute to the cause and your donation will earn matching dollars from two sponsoring organizations.

In other words, for every dollar you contribute in support, it will be matched dollar for dollar.

I have had the pleasure of meeting the WTA's Executive Director, James Clement, and enjoyed a multi-hour conversation with him in my office. Enthusiasm, honesty and integrity are words that come to mind when describing my impressions of him and the WTA.

What is Transhumanism?

"(1) The intellectual and cultural movement that affirms the possibility and desirability of fundamentally improving the human condition through applied reason, especially by developing and making widely available technologies to eliminate aging and to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities.

(2) The study of the ramifications, promises, and potential dangers of technologies that will enable us to overcome fundamental human limitations, and the related study of the ethical matters involved in developing and using such technologies. "

I made my contribution today on behalf of Relentless Improvement. Please join with me and make your show of support right now?

Carnitine: New Study Shows Fat Loss, Energy and Cognitive Gain

This L-Carnitine study is some really great news or those of us using Carnitine:

"The dietary supplement L-carnitine can lessen fatigue and boost mental function in very old people, Italian researchers report.

Study participants given L-carnitine also experienced significant increases in muscle mass and reductions in fat mass, Dr. Mariano Malaguarnera and colleagues from the University of Catania report in the December issue of the American Journal of Clinical nutrition."

"Cholesterol levels fell significantly among the individuals taking the supplement, they report. L-carnitine takers also gained 3.8 kilograms (8.4 pounds) of muscle mass, on average, and lost 1.8 kg (4 pounds) of fat mass. People given L-carnitine were also able to walk 4 meters (13 feet) further during a 6-minute walking test after treatment than those given placebo.

Study participants in the L-carnitine group also reported significant reductions in mental, physical and overall fatigue, while placebo treatment had no effect on fatigue. The individuals who took the supplement also scored higher on a test of mental function after treatment, while there was no change in the placebo group.

The supplement was well tolerated by study participants, the researchers report, with no serious side effects."
