March 30, 2010

Maximum Antioxidant Protection

Improves & Restores Cardiovascular Function

Triggers the Longevity Gene

Made with High Quality Ingredients for Optimized Potency

TerraCeutics™ TerraVin contains High Potency ingredients including the latest breakthrough in anti-aging supplements, Resveratrol!

TerraVin Natural Anti-aging formula contains powerful antioxidants, giving benefits to the cardiovascular system and the the immune system. Researchers believe that antioxidants, such as flavonoids or a substance called Resveratrol, found in red wine grapes, have promising heart-healthy benefits. Most bottles of wine on the market contain less than 1mg of Resveratrol in each bottle. The sure way to get the higher dosages of Resveratrol is through high quality nutritional supplements.

Resveratrol
The secret to anti-aging lies with Trans-Resveratrol, active form of resveratrol polyphenols found in the skins, seeds, and stems of red wine grapes. Trans-Resveratrol remains active only when sheltered from the sun, light, and oxygen. In this pure, ultra beneficial form, Trans-Resveratrol has been proven in studies to activate the SIRT1 longevity gene and enhance cellular productivity. Trans-Resveratrol is found here and available to you at its peak of potency.

Activin® Grape Seed Extract
The ActiPureTM is a patented (patent #5,912,363) natural extraction process. This process involves a hot water extraction of polyphenolic compounds (OPCs) from dry grape seeds. Extracted OPCs are selectively purified using food grade membrane filters and adsorption resins. Active compounds adsorbed on the resin are reversibly removed using an ethanol/water solution. Food grade membrane filters are employed to concentrate the OPCs before drying. The finished product consists of a red powder containing over 85 percent polyphenolics (measured as Gallic acid equivalents) and a potency of greater than 250 Porter units.

Pine Bark Extract
Pine bark Extract (Pycnogenol®) has proven to be one of the most potent antioxidants, a property that may explain why pine bark has been used in folk medicine around the world. Pine bark contains complex polyphenols that are among the most potent of any plant. Pine polyphenols are powerful antioxidants, giving benefits to the cardiovascular system and the immune system. They are well known for supporting capillary health. Polyphenols are vigorous free radical scavengers that help the body reduce oxidative stress.

Pycnogenol® is a combination of some 40 chemicals extracted from the bark of the French maritime pine, Pinus pinaster, which grows in many areas along the Atlantic coast of France and into North Africa. Extracts and teas of pine were commonly used by early Europeans and native Americans, and reportedly are used in Asian medicine as well.

Scientific studies have also found that Pycnogenol® extends the lifetime of vitamin C in the body, prolonging its beneficial effects as an antioxidant.

Fish oil may flow in the fountain of youth

January 27, 2010

The Spanish Explorer Ponce De Leon spent countless years looking for the fountain of youth. The answer wasn’t the water but what was swimming in it. Yet another study shows that fish oil may be a key to longer life.

Omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil may slow the ageing process by slowing the rate that telomeres shorten. Telomeres are the structures at the end of a chromosome that affect cell stability and replication. A growing body of research shows that the longer the telomeres, the longer the life of cells, which ultimately means slower ageing.

“Telomere length is an emerging marker for determining biological age, and many scientists are interested in understanding the impact of influences such as age, exercise, oxidative stress, diseases like diabetes and heart disease, and how interventions like dietary supplements, statins and omega-3 fatty acids impact length,” said the study, which was lead by Dr. Ramin Farzaneh-Far, assistant professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco. “We are excited to identify omega-3 fatty acids as a potentially protective factor that may slow down telomere shortening,” he said.

Previous research indicates heart patients with a higher intake of Omega-3s as have higher survival rates. Now researchers may know why. The new telomere Omega-3 research validates this and other studies on the importance of Omega-3 with regards to life expectancy. A study published in the April 2009 edition of PLoS Medicine, an online journal, showed that Omega-3 deficiencies may contribute to as many as 97,000 deaths annually.

“We know that daily doses of Omega-3 EPA/DHA can help with many conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, and we’re committed to increasing consumer awareness about the drastic Omega-3 EPA/DHA deficiency in the Western diet. However, these recent studies validate that Omega-3 EPA/DHA is more than just part of a healthy diet … it’s a matter of life and death,” said Lori Colvert, Ocean Nutrition Canada’s Vice President of Marketing and Communications.

For the telomere study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, researchers evaluated 608 patients with stable heart disease (from the Heart and Soul Study from September 2000 and December 2002) and followed up on their status for a median period of six years.

Researchers evaluated participants for Omega-3 fatty acid levels at the start and throughout the study. They also isolated DNA from the blood and evaluated the length of the telomere of the leukocyte, a type of blood cell. Telomeres in patients with the lowest Omega-3 levels shortened 2.6 times faster than patients with the highest levels of Omega-3s. The study only looked at blood levels of Omega-3s, not dosage.

Cardiologists note that this study was the first to look at telomere length over time. The question remains whether the study results apply to healthy people because the researchers only looked at patients with heart disease. Though according to Farzaneh-Far, telomeres shorten in everyone, so Omega-3s could indeed benefit most people.

People with the Highest Levels of GLUTATHIONE are Living Past the Age of 100

October 9, 2009

Cutting-edge research is revealing the power of a “master antioxidant” – a tripeptide molecule called glutathione (GLUTATHIONE (GSH)).

People with the highest levels of GLUTATHIONE (GSH) are the ones who routinely live past 100. Plus, it may prevent a host of chronic diseases like arthritis, high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer and diabetes – just to name a few.
Best of all, boosting your levels of GLUTATHIONE (GSH) is easy. Below is an effective strategy that may add decades to your life. These include the best ways to get the most powerful forms of GLUTATHIONE (GSH) and how much to take.

When scientists at the University of Louisville gave mosquitoes a GLUTATHIONE (GSH) booster, their levels went up by 50 to 100 percent. And, their life spans increased by a remarkable 30 to 38 percent. Doctors at the Montreal General Hospital Research Institute in Canada then repeated the experiment with mice. They were able to duplicate the results – boosting levels of GLUTATHIONE (GSH) and increasing life spans.

Their success prompted others to investigate the effects of GLUTATHIONE (GSH) in humans. Odense University in Denmark compared levels of GLUTATHIONE (GSH) in centenarians (age 100 to 105) and people age 60 to 79 and found that GLUTATHIONE (GSH) was higher in the centenarians. Among the centenarian group, those who were the most active had the very highest levels.

In the same way that high levels of GLUTATHIONE (GSH) increase life spans, low levels of GLUTATHIONE (GSH) show a direct link to chronic degenerative diseases.

Here’s just a partial list:

  • Heart Disease
  • Cataracts
  • Arthritis
  • Renal Failure
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Leukemia
  • Diabetes
  • Hearing Loss
  • Cancer
  • Obstructive Lung Disease (COPD)
  • Macular Degeneration

High levels of GLUTATHIONE (GSH) are associated with fewer illnesses. A University of Michigan study found that those with higher GLUTATHIONE (GSH) levels reported a greater sense of well being along with lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol and reduced body fat.

The most natural way to get more GLUTATHIONE (GSH) is eating foods high in glutathione. These include horseradish, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale and Brussels sprouts.

These nutritional supplements will also boost your GLUTATHIONE (GSH):

There are also two reliable GLUTATHIONE (GSH) precursors – substances that stimulate the production of GLUTATHIONE (GSH). These are whey protein, commonly found in protein powders and N-acetyl cysteine (in a dose of 1,800 mg to 2,400 mg a day) – both are available at American Nutrition and/or local health food stores.

Finally, you can take GLUTATHIONE (GSH) supplements (1 to 2 grams per day). The latest reports show that up to 80 percent of most GLUTATHIONE (GSH) supplements are absorbed and used by your body.

    Alpha-Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant that is soluble in both fat and water. It directly recycles vitamin C and indirectly recycles vitamin E, providing additional antioxidant protection. It is also an important component in the energy production process in the cells. Alpha-lipoic acid is a coenzyme that assists in the conversion of pyruvate to acetyl-coA. Acetyl-coA is the beginning point for the Krebs cycle, one of the body’s main energy production cycles, which produces the high-energy molecule ATP. Alpha-lipoic acid supports the immune system and also supports healthy liver function.

    Experts reveal best ways to save an aging brain

    June 23, 2009

    Fifty-three percent of people have at least a minor mental decline in their 70s, 80s. But research done by a team at the University of California, San Francisco, found several ways to save your aging brain, including:

  • Stay in school: High school graduates were 2 to 3 times more likely to be cognitive maintainers, compared to those with minor memory loss. Those with a ninth-grade literacy level or higher were 4 to 5 times as likely to maintain their mental capacity with age.

  • Quit smoking: Chalk up one more advantage of steering clear of cigarettes. Nonsmokers were 1.84-fold more likely to be in the “no memory loss” category compared with those with minor decline.

  • Exercise: People who engaged in moderate or vigorous activity at least once a week were more likely to maintain their memory.

  • Stay connected: People who lived with someone had a higher chance of being a memory maintainer, and the same was true for those who did volunteer work.

    Additionally there is some scientific evidence that supplements can help suppress damaging free radical and inflammatory reactions that are linked to underlying aging processes. Although none have been proven to slow aging.

    Among others this includes alpha lipoic acid. Results from animal studies indicate that alpha lipoic acid may improve long-term memory. and holds promise for preserving brain cells following a stroke or other type of trauma that restricts blood flow to the brain.
