 IN THE NEWS: L-CARNOSINE is a naturally occurring combination of two amino acids, alanine and histidine, that was discovered in Russia in the early 1900s. Most notably, there were a series of astonishing experiments done in Australia that proved that carnosine rejuvenates cells as they approach senescence (cells dying from old age).  Increase Cell Life But in terms of cell life, the increase was an astounding 300%. The cells transferred to the carnosine medium attained a life span of 413 days, compared to just 126 to 139 days for the control cells. Strong Antioxidant It’s a great heavy-metal scavenger. Auto-Regulator L-carnosine benefits individuals through the remarkable ability to throttle down bodily processes that are in a state of excess, and to ramp up those that are under expressed. For example, carnosine thins the blood of people whose blood tends to clot too much and increases the clotting tendency in those with a low clotting index. Another example is that carnosine suppresses excess immune responses in those who have “hyper” immune systems (allergies, auto-immune disorders), whereas it stimulates the immune response in those with weakened immune systems – such as the aged. And carnosine even seems to have the ability to normalize brain wave functions.

WELLNESS: SAMe EFFECTIVE FOR DEPRESSIVE SYMPTOMS A clinical trial published in August 2014 indicates that S-adenosyl methionine (SAMe) is effective in reducing the symptoms of depression in subjects with major depressive disorder (MDD). SAMe was superior to placebo from week one and was superior to escitalopram(Lexapro) during weeks two, four, and six in reducing symptoms of depression as measured by the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale. A 50% reduction in the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale occurred in 45% of the SAMe group, 31% in the escitalopram group, and 26% in the placebo group.

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: BRAIN FOG AND LACK OF CONCENTRATION one common cause for this condition is that the body is not detoxifying itself properly. When we talk about detoxification we’re talking about liver, kidney and colon function. Chiropractic adjustments can restore better function to these organs also cleaning up the diet and using targeted nutrition to open up the detox pathways can make a huge difference. This could also be due to a lack of sleep, and chiropractic care along with certain nutrients can improve a person’s sleep pattern. Subluxations at the base of the skull and blood sugar levels can also be a factor.

FUNNY BONE : What’s E.T. short for? Because he’s only got little legs.—“I stand corrected,” said the man in the orthopedic shoes.—- My grandad has the heart of a lion and a life time ban from the San Diego Zoo.—I went on a once in a lifetime holiday. Never again.
