B6 plays a valuable role in the liver by converting a type of cancer promoting estrogen into less harmful anti-cancer metabolites. B6 is very useful in the management of PMS, as well as nausea and vomiting that may accompany pregnancy. Oral contraceptives often increase the need for vitamin B6. The depression some experience on oral contraceptives can be helped with 40mg per day of B6. A five-month study with 76 asthmatics showed that 200mg per day of B6 lead to a reduction in the need for bronchodilators and asthmatic medications.
Folic acid is used to prevent birth defects and it may have particular application in the prevention and treatment of post-partum depression. Increased intake of folic acid may help protect against colorectal cancer.
Vitamin B12 has been found useful as a treatment for asthma, depression, nerve pain, low blood pressure, elevated homocysteine and promoting mental wellness. Vegetarians are particularly susceptible to low B12 levels, as B12 is found exclusively in animal products. Older adults are often low in vitamin B12, and it is known to be a cause of dementia in the elderly. Gastric acid is required for absorbtion, so that people on drugs to lower acid may become deficient.
Elevated homocysteine levels are felt to be the number one cause of strokes and heart attacks, and may contribute to Alzheimers. It makes blood vessels sticky, thereby predisposing them to plaque and clot formation. Cardio Health has all four elements required to lower homocysteine: methylated folic acid, vitamin B6, methylated vitamin B12, and trimethylglycine.
Recommended dose: 2 capsules daily
Specifically formulated to reduce high homocysteine levels (considered a major risk factor for heart attacks and strokes). Also for brain health (prevention of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease), female health, and depression.
Omega Max: (Retail: $53.00)
- Reduces Inflammation
- Reduces blood clotting
- Protects against heart disease
- Eases pain from arthritis
Fish are one of the most abundant sources of essential fatty acids (EFAs), but most Americans don’t eat enough fish on a regular basis. Even those who eat fish several times a week aren’t getting enough EFAs because much of the fish consumed today are farm raised which have a higher portion of omega-6 and lack significant amounts of EPA and DHA found in wild fish.
The “bad” fats are trans-fatty acids and saturated fats from animal products. Trans-fatty acids should be avoided completely; this includes margarine, shortening, and processed foods.
The “good” fats include essential fatty acids. EFAs are considered essential because they cannot be produced in the human body, and therefore must be provided in the diet. Omega-3 and Omega-6 acids constitute the two families of essential fatty acids. Omega-6 fatty acids include corn, soybean, safflower and sunflower oils. While they may be essential, it is important to limit our intake of these. It is Omega-3 that our standard American diet is lacking in. Sources of omega-3 include cold water oily fish such as salmon, mackerel, anchovies, sardines, and herring.
Omega-3 fatty acids comprise approximately eight percent of the average brain. The benefit of omega-3 is helping the brain to repair damage by promoting neuronal growth. This is especially true for the EFA component called DHA. Omega Max has an exceptionally high level of DHA compared to other fish oils - almost 800 mg in two capsules.
Elevated triglycerides are directly related to the progression of atherosclerosis and are considered independent risk factors for heart disease. Fish oil EPA and DHA have shown consistent triglyceride lowering effects in both animals and humans.
Recommended use: Daily dose - 2 capsules per day
Therapeutic dose – 4-6 capsules per day
Platt Pro 5% Progesterone Cream with Lavender Essential Oil - (Retail: $49.00)
The Platt PRO 5% with Lavender Essential Oil has a clean odor (not a fragrance) and disappears into the skin in about 30 seconds. Lavender Essential Oil is known to have a natural calming effect.
The major benefit of this cream is that it has been specially formulated to provide maximal effectiveness. In this regard, it has the exact strength needed to block the toxic effects of estrogen, insulin, and adrenaline.
Platt PRO has a 5% strength, which means that one pump provides 50 mg of progesterone. To gain insight into some of the actions of progesterone, please refer to the Progesterone Information below.
After it is applied, progesterone only lasts for about 5-6 minutes in the bloodstream because it is quickly picked up by receptor sites.
Since it is so short acting, the best time to use progesterone is 1-3 minutes before eating. The most important time of day to use progesterone is before lunch. Insulin levels are the highest in the afternoon, which, of course, is why many people get sleepy between 3-4PM. Please keep in mind that when sugar levels drop, the body will be releasing adrenaline to raise the sugar levels back up.
To get the most out of the cream, remove the bottom cap and push up the pump from underneath to unlodge any pressure.
Strength: 50 mg per pump
Apply 1 pump to the inside of one forearm and rub forearms together. Or apply to the back of the neck if there is tension.
For those with increased adrenaline, we recommend using the cream 1-3 minutes before meals in order to control insulin levels.
Do this up to four times a day. When symptoms of increased adrenaline are abated, you can reduce applications to 2-3 times a day.
If you have trouble sleeping at night, it is recommended that you eat a low-glycemic carbohydrate just before going to bed. In addition, apply the cream again just before eating your bedtime snack.
Progesterone provides benefits to both men and women in three major areas. The first area is its well-known effect in women as the hormone that helps block the detrimental effects of estrogen. In this regard, it helps prevent menstrual cramps, breast tenderness, and PMS in those women who are menstruating, along with fibroids, endometriosis, PCOS, and fibrocystic disease of the breast. It also eliminates other problems caused by estrogen such as asthma, migraine headaches, and morning sickness. In addition, it helps to prevent all cancers caused by estrogen, such as cancers of the breast, uterus, ovaries, cervix, colon, and prostate in men.
The second major area of benefit from using progesterone is the effect it has on insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is associated with the causation of obesity as well as type II diabetes and its many complications. It is a fact that insulin raises blood pressure and is felt to be a major influence in speeding up the aging process. Progesterone blocks insulin receptor sites on cells, thereby helping to eliminate drops in blood sugar (hypoglycemia). As a result, it prevents sleepiness after eating, between 3 and 4 PM, and while driving. This ability to block the effects of insulin also helps with weight loss.
The third major area of benefit of using progesterone is that it blocks the action and over-production of adrenaline. Adrenaline is popularly known as “the-fight-or-flight” hormone, and excess levels can create anger, road rage, insomnia, restless leg syndrome, and teeth grinding. When anger is internalized, it can lead to depression, anxiety, fibromyalgia, IBS, plus other problems. As a neurotransmitter in the brain, adrenaline can cause the mind to race which can cause problems with focusing – i.e. ADHD, or “brain fog”. It also causes urinary urgency in adults as well as bed-wetting in children. Adrenaline is probably the number one cause of unexplained weight gain. Leg cramps at night are also caused by adrenaline, and can usually be relieved within 30-60 seconds when progesterone is applied to the area of cramping.
Other benefits: 1) it can have a significant effect on the lowering of blood pressure, 2) it can help infertile women get pregnant, 3) it can prevent or treat postpartum depression, and 4) it is beneficial for relieving peripheral neuropathy.
