  • ANTI-AGING ?????????
    The therapeutic value of DHEA is being applied to the preventative measures and treatment for conditions such as cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, immune disorders and chronic fatigue. The hormone is also being explored for potential benefits in the aging process. Hormone, alpha–lipoic acid andacetyl carnitine prevent oxidative decay in the mitochondria. Scientists long ago discovered that acetyl-L-carnitine and coenzyme Q10 help protect against cellular energy deficits by maintaining healthy mitochondrial function.  Carnosine prevents protein cross-linking and AGE formation.Carnosine and benfotiamine appear to be the most effective nutrients to reduce glucose-induced cellular damage. Melatonin seems to hold the secret to the aging clock. Crossing the blood-brain barrier efficiently, melatonin releases itself into the system, reaching its peak at night (promoting sleep) and seemingly works with growth hormones and other agents that help maintain our tissues in a state of health.
