Natural Support For Stomach Health

The discovery that H. pylori infection leads to serious stomach problems enabled two scientists to win the Nobel prize for their breakthrough research.1-3

Perhaps even more meaningful, it was found that eradication of H. pylori can relieve symptoms of stomach distress, including gastritis, and prevent cancer.4

The ulcer-inducing bacteria H. pylori is now believed to affect up to 40% of Americans.5

 


Probiotics Provide Anti Aging Defense

Scientists report that the strength of your immune system—at least 70% of which is located in your gut—relies on the makeup of your intestinal bacteria.1,2

Put differently, the estimated 100 trillion bacteria living in your gut are the human equivalent of an environmental ecosystem. And like global ecosystems, our personal microbe population is losing its diversity—and threatening our health as a result.3


Grow New Brain Cells

For years, scientists believed brain shrinkage was inevitable and irreversible.

Cutting-edge research has shown that brain cells can regenerate.

An amino acid called taurine plays an important role in creating new brain cells.

 


Oral Treatment For Dry Eyes

Scientists in Japan have made an important discovery that could revolutionize treatment for people suffering from dry eye syndrome.

Researchers found that an extract from the South American maqui berry can mitigate an underlying factor in dry eye syndrome—leading to significant improvements in symptomsand quality of life.


Relief From Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Few people realize that the intestinal tract has its own nervous system that communicates directly with the brain. Because of this unique nervous system,1-3 people with irritable bowel syndrome often have intensified responses to abdominal distension or movement that can result in the brain receiving distressingly strong pain signals.4-6

Nearly 20% of Americans suffer from irritable bowel syndrome, a chronic disorder that causes painful symptoms such as cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, diarrhea, and constipation.7-10


Natural Methods To Control Cholesterol

Approximately 25 million people take statin drugs to reduce their cholesterol, yet heart disease remains the number one killer of Americans.1-3

While statins lower LDL cholesterol and C-reactive protein, and modestly elevate protective HDL cholesterol,4,5 they may increase the risk of heart failure in certain people.6,7


A Common Virus That May Accelerate Immune

A major reason why our immune system fails with aging is that we lose vital naïve (virgin) immune cells while we accumulate excess levels of senile memory cells.1,2

Naïve immune cells are needed to respond to new malignancies and infectious agents,3whereas memory immune cells only respond to the original antigen, i.e. bacteria, virus, or cancer cell.4


AMPK --- The Cellular Enzyme That Promotes Longevity And Reduces Fat Storage

If one were to travel back in time to the 1800s, it would have been difficult to imagine that bacterial diseases would ever cease being the leading cause of suffering and death.1


The Deadly Consequences Of Excess Abdominal Fat

Few people realize that excess abdominal fat, especially excess fatty deposits around the internal organs in the abdominal cavity (called visceral body fat), is far more damaging to health and longevity than simply being “overweight.”


Maximizing Omega-3 Health Benefits

There are now close to 20,000 published studies on the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids. As researchers continue to discover new longevity mechanisms such as reducing brain shrinkage, protecting memory and improving endothelial function, scientists have begun to analyze how different omega-3 sources affect the body.
