Vinpocetin

Natural Brain Energizer and Oxygenator

Vinpocetin for Cerebral CirculationVinpocetin is derived from vincamine, the major indole alkaloid in the periwinkle plant.

More than 100 studies have shown that vinpocetin increases cerebral circulation (blood supply to the brain) AND improves brain energy production (ATP) and oxygen use.

The benefits of vinpocetin are derived from these effects and include:

  • treatment of stroke
  • inner ear problems that result in dizziness
  • hearing loss
  • vision loss
  • neurological disorders
  • memory loss

Precautions: Adverse side-effects are rare and mild but may include a brief drop in blood pressure or a faster heart rate. These effects usually disappear with continued use of vinpocetin. Vinpocetin has no known drug interactions, no toxicity, and is generally very safe.

Dose: 10mg, 3 times per day for one month or until desired effects are achieved, then 10mg 1-3 times thereafter for maintenance.

 

Vitex (Vitex agnus-castus)


“Chaste Berry” for Hormone Balance

Vitex, commonly known as “Chaste-berry” because of it’s effect on hormones, has hormonal effects on both men and women.

Vitex inhibits the action of male androgens (sex hormones). The name “Chaste tree” came from it’s use by monks to decrease libido. Vitex effects prolactin, the hormone responsible for making breast milk in women (although men have prolactin hormone, too). In very small doses, (120mg), prolactin may be increased in men. In higher doses, prolactin is decreased in both men and women.

In men, Vitex is used to treat prostate cancer because of its ability to inhibit male hormones and keep prolactin levels low. In women, Vitex has progesterone effects and is often used as a hormone regulator when more progesterone is indicated, such as in menopause.

The more common uses of Vitex include:

  • Prostate cancer
  • Female menopause
  • PMS
  • Irregular periods
  • Infertility

Recommended dose: 2 caps (500mg) per day between meals.

Vitamin E


The Premier Fat-Soluble Antioxidant

Vitamin E is the primary fat-soluble antioxidant vitamin in the body. (Vitamin C is the primary water-soluble antioxidant). Vitamin E plays a major role in  cellular respiration. Deficiencies of Vitamin E are associated with:

  • heart disease
  • cancer
  • strokes
  • arthritis
  • allergies
  • infections
  • inflammation
  • diabetes
  • neurological damage
  • muscle weakness
  • fibrocystic breast disease
  • eczema
  • macular degeneration
  • poor wound healing

Dietary sources of Vitamin E include: wheat germ oil, nuts, whole grains, egg yolk.

NOTE: Doses over 800 IU per day of vitamin E may elevate triglycerides.

Maxi Multi provides 400 IU per day of Vitamin E

Those requiring additional Vitamin E supplementation should consider Tocotrienols

Syncholamine™

Excitatory Neurotransmitter-Enhancing Formula

SyncholamineSyncholamine provides the precursors (raw materials) to assist the body’s production of the neurotransmitters epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine. These three hormones are excitatory neurotransmitters (NT’s). A deficiency of any of these neurotransmitters can cause depression, fatigue, food cravings and addictions, and weight gain. Low dopamine is also associated with Parkinson’s disease. A neurotransmitter profile is used to evaluate altered brain chemistry.

St. John’s Wort is covered by health insurance in Germany as a prescription drug, where an estimated 20 million people take it to treat depression. Studies suggest that St. John’s Wort inhibits the reuptake of serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine, thereby making these neurotransmitters more available to the brain.

Decreased levels of vitamin B12 are known to cause depression.

Each Syncholamine capsule contains:

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine HCl) 15mg
Folic Acid 500mcg
Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) 300mcg
L-Tyrosine 350mg
L-Phenylalanine 250mg
St. Johns Wort (Hypericum perforatum) extract (aerial) 0.3% Hypericin 125mg

Other Ingredients: Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (Vegcap).

Contains no added starch, salt, wheat, gluten, corn, coloring, or dairy products.

Recommended Dose: two to four capsules per day before breakfast on an empty stomach.

Longevity & Rejuvenation

Live A Long and Healthy Life

Many of the practices that make for a healthier life also increase life expectancy. In addition, some herbs and nutritional substances may increase life expectancy, although this is less well-proven than the health practices described below.

Factors which have definitely been shown to increase life expectancy, demonstrated in decades-long research in animals and also in human population studies: Maintaining a lean body mass index (being at the lean end of your desirable weight range) while maintaining a high level of nutrition. Staying slim through nutrient deprivation doesn’t extend life. Staying slim by eating a high quality diet does. (See Weight Loss if you are overweight).

No other physical means (not even exercise) is proven to increase life expectancy. (Exercise is known to increase health span, meaning the number of years that a person stays healthy. We have no proof that it increases total lifespan, however).

Diet And Lifestyle Recommendations

  • Diet: eat a diet high in nutrient-rich foods.
  • Achieve and maintain a normal weight. Overweight is the second biggest cause of premature aging and death. (Smoking is first).
  • Exercise regularly. 30 minutes, 3 times per week minimum.
  • Don’t smoke! Smoking is the single biggest cause of premature aging and death.
  • Follow the Ten Golden Rules of Good Health.

Skin Rejuvenation and Protection Cream

rejuvenates and protects the skin in one easy formula. I have found it difficult if not impossible to find a good cream that contains all of the important ingredients for quality skin care until now.

is the first cosmetic preparation that I am aware of to combine the finest, proven ingredients into one easy formula. You can try to duplicate all of these skin essentials yourself, but you will be working hard and paying far more for the individual preparations. (Believe me, I know from experience. That’s how I’ve been making my own cream until now!)

This cream is rich, wonderful, contains “all the right stuff” as listed below, and what’s more, and a little goes a long way. You need only apply it morning and evening to get great results. Both men and women will benefit.
