Cell Phone Radiation and Ginkgo

Past studies have determined that mobile phone use and the subsequent emission of low level EMR (electromagnetic radiation) can lead to oxidative damage in brain tissue. Ginkgo biloba has been shown to prevent mobile phone induced oxidative tissue damage.

Membrin combines three powerful brain revitalizing nutrients, Ginkgo Biloba, Vinpucetine and Huperzine.

A Pigment with a Punch.

Astaxanthin, a carotenoid with powerful antioxidant properties and the pigment that gives salmon and krill its pinkish to dark red color, may protect against the development of diabetic kidney disease, says a new study.

Take Antioxidants Before Surgery

Patients receiving anesthesia prior to surgery may want to increase their intake of antioxidants as anesthesia may decrease levels of naturally occurring antioxidants and increase oxidative markers such as lipid peroxidation, which have been implicated in a variety of chronic disease processes.

Pure Synergy greens powder contains high levels of naturally occuring antioxidants, enzymes, vitamins and minerals.

The Pain of magnesium deficiency.

Substance P, a brain protein, has many functions including involvement in pain perception and the transmission of pain information to the central nervous system. Mice kept in a magnesium deficient state demonstrated increased levels of Substance P and inflammatory markers including cytokines, including interleukin-1, interleukin-6, and tumor necrosis factor. This is evidence that magnesium may play a significant role in reducing inflammation and pain perception.

Natural Calm is an excellent powdered magnesium preparation for relaxation and reducing musculo-skeletal aches and pains. For a combination Calcium and Magnesium powder, try Natural Calm + Calcium.
