  • Quenching the Flames of Inflammatory Brain Aging - Natural agents block the brain's dual inflammatory pathways, improve circulation and restore acetylcholine. Clearly, any steps that can be taken to prevent cognitive decline – often viewed as the first step on the path to full- blown dementia – are well worth investigating.

  •  Protocol: Aging and Inflammation - Chronic systemic inflammation is an underlying cause of many seemingly unrelated, age-related diseases. As humans grow older, systemic inflammation can inflict devastating degenerative effects throughout the body. This fact is often overlooked by the medical establishment, yet persuasive scientific evidence exists that correcting a chronic inflammatory disorder will enable many of the infirmities of aging to be prevented or reversed.

  • Alpha GPC - It is well established that aging people suffer a deterioration of memory, acuity and other cognitive functions. The encouraging news is that researchers are discovering compounds that may be able to slow and even reverse the relentless deterioration that begins with mild memory impairment and often progresses to full-blown Alzheimer's disease or vaxcular dementia. One promising compound is glycerylphosphorylcholine (GPC).

  • ArthroPro Anti-Inflammation System - Multiple degenerative processes occur due to agents that promote systemic inflammation. These inflammatory agents include, cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), 5-lipooxygenase (5-LOX), and damaging cytokines known as tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-a) and interleukin-1 beta (IL-1b). Other harmful enzymes are collagenase and phospholipase. Thus, the goal is to block all the destructive pathways involved.
