ProArgi9 Plus – Wound and Bone Healing

Although not originally declared as part of the High Desert Study parameters, wound healing was greatly enhanced for the participants. Following is more information on the ability of nitric oxide in HEALING:

http://www.futurescience.com/arginine.html

Arginine is also a powerful immune stimulant and wound-healing agent. At one time, this was thought to be exclusively due to its growth hormone releasing properties; but arginine is a powerful immune stimulant and wound healing agent even in the absence of significant growth hormone release. It is now known that arginine has other important benefits as a precursor of nitric oxide.

Nitric oxide is usually thought of as a toxic component of smog, but recent scientific discoveries have shown it to be a biological compound of immense importance. Nitric oxide is the epithelial-derived relaxing factor, the chemical secreted by the lining of human blood vessels that causes the blood vessels to dilate, and thus determines what parts of the body receive extra blood flow, and what parts will receive less in response to other biological signals. Adequate nitric oxide also helps to insure that this allocation of blood flow is accomplished without undue increases in blood pressure. Scientists have searched for years for the chemical that causes this blood vessel dilation. They were not expecting that the chemical would be a gas, although nitric oxide dissolves easily in water. The search for this chemical was made even more difficult by the fact that the nitric oxide is destroyed by hemoglobin within about three seconds of the time it is released in the blood vessel lining.

Nitric oxide now also appears to be the neurotransmitter responsible for converting short-term memories to long-term memories in the brain. This is another ability that often declines with aging.

The body also concentrates high levels of nitric oxide in the fluid around a wound. The exact function of nitric oxide in wound healing is unclear at this time.

In some hospitals, small amounts of nitric oxide are being mixed with the oxygen received by patients with certain lung disorders. The results of this new treatment appear very promising.

Overall, the role of nitric oxide in the human body is a major area of current medical research. Important new discoveries about the role of nitric oxide are being made every month. The human body manufactures nitric oxide from only one nutrient: arginine.

The remarkable wound healing enhancement of arginine appears to be due to its growth hormone releasing properties as well as its role as the body’s sole source of nitric oxide. There are a number of reports in the scientific literature about the wound healing properties of arginine and the usefulness of arginine before and after surgery. Arginine can greatly accelerate the healing of broken bones and other accidental wounds.

Mistica, The Acai Berry, Super Food Packed with Nutrients

I am sure by now you have heard of the Acai Berry and its amazing benefits. The Acai Berry has been talked about on Oprah, Dr. Oz, Dr. Perricone and many other TV news programs. The Acai Berry has been named a super food or one of the five good foods for you. But with these great benefits comes many scams, so beware of what you are purchasing. Acai Berry comes in many forms such as juice, powder, pill or natural. So how do you know which product has real benefits or is it a scam. Well let’s first look at what the Acai Berry is and what benefits it can bring.

What is the Acai Berry?

The Acai Berry is grown in the Amazon Rain Forest of Brazil on top of the Amazon Palm trees. Acai is pronounced ‘ah-sigh-ee’ and is dark purple in color, very similar to the blueberry. It is a relative of the blueberry, cranberry, and other dark purple fruits. The Acai is rated in the top of the ORAC scale, which is a measurement, pound per pound, of the amount of antioxidants. But that is not all that is in the Acai Berry, it is also rich in Omega oils (Omega 3, 6, and 9), and it is fiber rich, containing 45 grams of fiber per 100 grams of berries. It also contains 19 different amino acids and proteins that promote the growth and health of body tissues. It contains three various plant sterols that promote heart health and aids digestion, and it has amounts of vitamins B1, B2, B3, C and E. If that’s not enough, Acai also contains the essential minerals potassium, calcium, copper, magnesium and zinc. Wow it is really a super food.

What are the Benefits of the Acai Berry?

Research on the Acai Berry has focused on its possible antioxidant activity and this activity may help prevent diseases caused by oxidative stress such as heart disease and cancer. Acai contains several substances called anthocyanins and flavonoids. Anthocyanins and flavonoids are powerful antioxidants that help defend the body against life’s stressors. They also play a role in the body’s cell protection system. Free radicals are harmful byproducts produced by the body. Eating a diet rich in antioxidants may interfere with aging and the disease process by neutralizing free radicals and help reduce the risk of some diseases, such as heart disease and cancer.

Although acai is touted in some weight loss products, few studies have tested the benefit of the Acai Berry in promoting weight loss but people have testified of their ability to lose weight when using Acai Berry. For now, plenty of research supports eating a diet rich in antioxidants. There’s no doubt that berries and other fruits are a key part of any healthy diet promoting weight loss.

So what is the best Acai Berry Product? Naturally, Synergy Mistica.

Everyone will tell you that their Acai Berry product is the best. The best source of any fruit or vegetable is raw in its natural form. But that may only be possible for the people that live in the Amazon Rain Forest. So what is the next best? Well there are a lot of great Acai Berry products on the market so it may be hard to narrow it down to one. The juice form is always a better option than the pill form because of its ability to absorb into the body. So now we have narrowed it to a lot of Acai Berry juices. Many of these are sold through Network Marketing. Many have blended other products into the juice that just enhances the product even more. So this gives you a good start on which product to choose.

The choice is yours, choose wisely.

Get More Phytonutrients, Chlorophyll, and Antioxidants with Core Greens

Doctors and nutritionists alike unanimously proclaim the importance of large amounts of fruits and vegetables in a healthy diet. But finding the time to eat the recommended five to nine servings a day can be a daunting task. Synergy’s Core Greens and its enhanced Green Fusion Technology help you bridge the gap and provide the protection your body needs for optimal health and continual vigor.

Do you get your 5 to 9 servings of vegetables each day? Difficult isn’t it?

Vegetables are the building blocks of a healthy body and many today just don’t get enough vegetables in their daily diet. So just why are the leafy greens so important for us to maintain proper health?

Core Greens was developed to help provide a daily dose of the needed greens. Mix up a scoop of Core Greens and the task is complete.

Here are a few of the key points that Core Greens has to offer.

* Phytonutrients will provide powerful health-protective benefits

Phytonutrients (pronounced “fight-o-nutrients”), are natural bioactive compounds found infruits and vegetables that works together with vitamins, minerals, and fiber to promote good health. The National Cancer Institute recommends eating at least 5 – 9 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. In addition to helping you feel better eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables can also help reduce your risk of many chronic diseases including cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, stroke and other diseases. But it is difficult to eat enough fruits and vegetables to get the recommended dosage of vitamins and minerals that our bodies need to stay healthy, unless we are taking some form of vitamin supplement. However, traditional vitamin supplements do not provide us with phytonutrients. But Core Greens will provide you with the proper dose.

* Antioxidants combat free radicals and help counter cell damage

Antioxidants are substances or nutrients in our foods which can prevent or slow the oxidative damage to our body. When our body cells use oxygen, they naturally produce free radicals (by-products) which can cause damage. Antioxidants act as “free radical scavengers” and hence prevent and repair damage done by these free radicals. But are we really getting enough antioxidants in our daily meals?

* Chlorophyll enhances immunity and protects cells

Science has known for years the benefits of chlorophyll; without chlorophyll, the ‘green blood’ of plant / photosynthesis, life as we know it could not exist. Until recently, most research involving plants has been geared towards ‘better plants’ for ‘better meat'”. For years it was thought that the protein we needed could only come from meat.

Chlorophyll provides an all natural detoxification. As more and more research is done, scientists are learning that chlorophyll is not only a cleansing and blood builder food, but that it can be used to counter radiation and may prevent certain cancers from forming. In addition, another little known benefit of chlorophyll is its ability to kill some germs, promote intestinal health and its use as a topical skin healer.

* Green Fusion Technology harnesses the power of the sun

An advanced process that concentrates chlorophyll and other photosynthetic elements from grasses and other vegetables into a convenient, easily digestible form to help protect healthy cells, support the immune system, and act as a natural detoxifier. In fact, a good Green Fusion product will provide all the necessary ingredients to meet the five keys to optimal health and nutrition.

* Alkalizing formula hydrates and detoxifies the body

The foods you eat have a major impact on your body’s acid-alkaline balance. Digestion of processed foods, for example, will create acidic byproducts that flow into the bloodstream. The more processed foods (sugars, refined carbohydrates, etc.) you eat, the more acid-byproducts will be created and the more acidic your bloodstream will become. Core Greens puts the alkali back in your body.

* Greens enhance energy and provide nutrition

These green ingredients help provide phytonutrients, chlorophyll and antioxidants. Combined with the Green Fusion Technology we can get the most from these ingredients.

Wheat Grass, Oat Sprout Powder, Barley Grass, Lemon Grass, Avocado Fruit Powder, Cucumber Powder, Okra Powder, Celery Seed Powder, Parsley Leaves, Spinach Powder, Kale Powder, Broccoli Powder, Cabbage Powder, Tomato Fruit Powder, Watercress Leaves, Wintergreen Leaves Powder, Peppermint Leaves, Rosemary Leaves, Sage Leaves, Spearmint Leaves & Flowers, Thyme Leaves.

Now just how many of these ingredients would you normally eat in a day?

Core Greens is one of the three products that make up Synergy Worldwide’s V3 Nutritional System.

The choice is yours, choose wisely.

The Benefits of Nitric Oxide

It’s amazing but 1 out of 3 people will end up with some form of heart disease. 2 out of 3 people with diabetes will die from heart disease or stroke. Folks with diabetes have twice the chance of getting heart disease, so what is the correlation between heart disease and diabetes? Folks with diabetes have a higher rate of high blood pressure, a higher rate of cholesterol and a much higher rate of hardening of the arteries. Studies suggest that the added stress to the heart from the ups and downs of blood sugar levels may contribute to these higher rates of problems. With this additional stress to the circulatory system the veins and arteries contract and can not relax. These constant contractions leads to the hardening of the arteries, restricted blood flow and higher blood pressure.

There have been a proliferation of studies in the medical world on Nitric Oxide. The studies have concluded that people with diabetes have lower levels of nitric oxide in their blood stream. Science doesn’t quite know why yet but suggestions are that the diabetic stress or contracted arteries may be part of this lower level.

So,what is nitric oxide and what does it do? Nitric oxide is produced when we take in an amino acid called l-arginine. L-arginine comes from red meat, some nuts,as well as a variety of other sources, but most people as they age need more l-arginine and usually eat less of the foods that provide it. Nitric Oxide stimulates the endothelia and causes the arteries to relax. This is the only purpose of Nitric Oxide, but is so vital to a healthy circulatory system. Relaxed arteries and veins reduce plaque build up, reduce high blood pressure and reduce hardening of the arteries. So Nitric Oxide in the body is crucial and is many times absent, leading to heart disease.

It’s important to note that however that just taking a l-arginine supplement may not always help. There’s another amino acid needed to assist l-arginine, l-Citruline. L-Citruline helps the Nitric Oxide last longer in the blood stream. Without l-Citruline the Nitric Oxide is very short lived, often ranging from just minutes to perhaps a couple of hours, and thus not reaching all parts of the circulatory system. with the addition of L-Citruline, Nitric Oxide can often last from 24-48 hours. So what are the steps needed to reduce the most evident chance a diabetic will get heart disease? The American Diabetes Association suggests following you ABCs of diabetes. A is for keeping your A1c in check or below 7 B is for keeping your blood pressure in line C is for keeping your cholesterol levels down They also suggest losing weight, stop smoking, physical exercise and staying on your medication. But let’s take this a step further. The ADA never once mentioned taking a supplement of l-Arginine, increasing omega fatty acids or using any natural products to help with a healthier body. If you look hard on the ADA or the AHA site you will find that the main sponsors of these sites are the major pharmaceutical companies. Coincidence? They want to keep you on the medications and not completely stop the use of their products. That’s why an addition to the ADA recommendations is warranted.

If one studies l-Arginine and the effects that Nitric Oxide has on the circulatory system, you find it does many great things for our bodies. Many of the complications of diabetes are related to poor circulation. So if one can increase blood circulation, relax the vessels and lower blood pressure many of these complications would be drastically reduced. One example is the loss of limbs, which is one of the more common complications. This is because the feet and legs are the farthest from the heart and without proper blood flow to them; they begin to die, resulting in amputation. A strong l-Arginine, l-Citruline complex may be just the product to help diabetics with better overall circulation.

Allow me to introduce you to an endocrinologist that has spent his life researching and studying what l-Arginine can do for diabetics. Dr. Joe Prendergast has an operating endocrinologist practice in California. Dr. Prendergast has been treating patients for years with a product called Proagri 9 Plus. Prior to using this l-Arginine supplement,Dr. Prendergast regularly referred patients onto several different heart specialists. Now he very seldom refers patients to any heart specialist. Dr. Prendergast has taken heart disease out of his diabetic patients, the ones willing to take the product anyway. A great reference to the benefits of l-Arginine is a book called No More Heart Disease by Dr. Louis Ignarro. Dr. Ignarro along with two other doctors won the Nobel Prize with their discovery of what Nitric Oxide does to the circulatory system.

So you might ask why we do not hear more about this. Well,  the pharmaceutical industry makes billions a year on heart and diabetes medications. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in men and women; diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death. The pharmaceutical industry continue to keep adding products to reduce this rate but still has not done so, but they sure keep increasing their sales. So,in short, do your research and decide if Proargi 9 Plus may benefit you or someone you may know. The evidence is out there and is evident in Dr. Prendergast’s practice.

The choice is yours, choose wisely.
