Cambridge Micelle Technology in Carocelle® Lycopene and Resveratrol anti-ageing and cardio-protective formula

Cambridge, England, 2017-Feb-14 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — Resveratrol and lycopene are the compounds known for anti-ageing and cardio-protective properties. Mediterranean diet based, among others, on consumption of big quantities of lycopene-rich vegetables coincides with a longer lifespan, lower incidence of CVDs and reduced occurrence of some forms of cancer among the population of Mediterranean region. High resveratrol consumption is considered a factor in “French Paradox”, where epidemiological data show low incidence of CVDs, despite high consumption of saturated fats. Consumers have enormous choice of food supplements including lycopene and resveratrol, but key information is often missing: what happens to the substance once consumed and how much of it is really absorbed?

Resveratrol – the powerful anti-ageing, antioxidant polyphenol

Resveratrol is a phytochemical from polyphenols family, compounds known for their antioxidant properties. It is produced by plants in response to different stresses from their surrounding environment and found mainly in the peel and seeds of red grapes, also in peanuts and berries. High resveratrol consumption is considered a factor in “French Paradox”, where epidemiological data show apparent disconnect between the incidence of cardiovascular diseases in French population and high consumption of saturated fats. It is thought to be related to high consumption of red wine that contains resveratrol. There is significant scientific research on the beneficial effects of resveratrol relating to anti-ageing and longevity – activation of sirtuin enzymes, support of mitochondrial metabolism, protection of telomeres, antioxidant properties. It also supports cardiovascular health and influences glucose metabolism management.

Lycopene – great contributor to healthy skin

Lycopene belongs to family of plant-derived substances – carotenoids. Due to their strong antioxidative properties carotenoids help protect plants from oxidative damage caused by various stressing factors. Scientific interest in lycopene originates from the phenomenon of the Mediterranean diet and its’ cardio-protective and longevity promoting properties. The Mediterranean diet is based, among others, on high consumption of tomatoes and other vegetables that contain high levels of lycopene and other carotenoids. The population of the Mediterranean region has a longer lifespan, lower incidence of cardiovascular diseases and lower occurrence of some forms of cancer. Because of its’ antioxidative properties lycopene helps fight against free radicals in the skin, reduces its’ sensitivity to UV radiation, reduces mitochondrial DNA damage, lowers the risk of heart diseases.

Carocelle® presents best in class lycopene and resveratrol anti-ageing supplement

The main challenge of resveratrol supplementation remains its’ bioavailability. As quickly as it is absorbed from intestinal tract to bloodstream most of it is transformed into inactive compounds. New Carocelle® Lycopene & Resveratrol formulation delivers superior bioavailability, proven in clinical trials. Carocelle® technology makes resveratrol over +500% more bioavailable than other products on the market and provides its’ outstanding concentration that would normally be difficult to obtain from other available sources.

Pharmacokinetic tests for Carocelle® Lycopene have also confirmed 2x higher concentration of lycopene in the bloodstream (bioavailability) in comparison to reference brand available on the market, with the same dosage of the compound.

Carocelle® Technology behind compounds’ superior bioavailability

Vesicle-micellisation helps carotenoids become more resistant to degradation in the highly acidic stomach environment. This ensures that more active lycopene and resveratrol can pass to the intestines and be absorbed. The vesicle-micelle format is easily transformed in the intestines by bile acids to the mixed micelles. This guarantees optimal absorption of fat-soluble ingredients, like lycopene and resveratrol. The result is increased delivery of active lycopene and resveratrol to the intestine for maximum absorption, improved bioavailability and remarkable bioactivity. Chaperone compounds in Carocelle® Lycopene & Resveratrol vesicle-micelles additionally contribute to increased bioavailability of both lycopene and resveratrol.

There are currently 3 SKUs within Carocelle® range:

Carocelle® Lycopene & Resveratrol
Carocelle® Lutein & Zeaxanthin
Carocelle® Lycopene

Want Vibrant Wellness? Free talk by Encinitas physician December 4th

Dr. Diana Hoppe, Encinitas Ob/Gyn physician, is giving a free talk at the Kaila Beauty Bar and Med Spa in Encinitas on Wednesday, December 4, 2013 from 5:30pm-7:30pm.

If living a vibrant life is on your to-do list, you’ll want to learn what this well-known physician has to say about your taking charge of maintaining good health. While we are living in a “toxic soup,” Dr. Hoppe, who is an integrative physician, believes that healthy aging is attainable.

Dr. Hoppe will talk about how to support the body’s ability to cleans toxins so cells can be nourished using positive thinking, exercise, healthy foods, and valuable supplements. Dr. Hoppe says, “It is my sincere desire to help individuals feel, live and perform their very best.”

A highly respected clinical researcher and popular public speaker, Dr. Hoppe earned her medical degree at the University of California, San Diego, where she also completed her internship and residency in Obstetrics/Gynecology.

Dr. Hoppe is a distinguished physician who has practiced integrative medicine in Encinitas since 1989. Among her many accomplishments, she wrote a book called “Healthy Sex Drive, Healthy You,” writes a weekly newsletter and blog, spoke on the Dr. Oz Show, and San Diego Living Show (www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1NCazPmriI (Preview)). She is hosting a seminar with four other doctors called “Vibrantly You” on Jan. 18, 2014. Her website is www.DrDianaHoppe.com

Dr. Hoppe will discuss the hormonal aspects of stress and toxins, and why they make us sick, tired and fat. Focusing on how to de-toxify and help the body to reach optimal health and weight, she will suggest the use of simple core supplementation to support and nourish our inner environment so the body can start to heal itself.

As a physician who is known for wanting to empower her clients to take responsibility for their wellness, after a great deal of investigation, Dr. Hoppe decided to work with the company called Orenda International. Dr. Hoppe found that Orenda is a highly ethical company, endorsed by other reputable doctors. In her research, Dr. Hoppe found that Orenda International uses a paradigm shift called “Awaken, Cleanse and Feed” that supports healthful aging.

Having offered herself as a “guinea pig” to try the new Orenda “Clean Burn Shape” program for effective weight loss, Dr. Hoppe found she could actually shed—without difficulty–17 pounds that she previously failed to get rid of no matter how many different programs she tried to adhere to and found to be unsuccessful. “It is so rewarding to be able to slender down and wear clothes that have been too small for a number of years—especially with the added benefit of having more energy!”

Dr. Hoppe says, “We have the honor of having George Hall, one of the co-founding brothers of Orenda International, join us for the evening.” Hall will share his insights about how to maintain optimal health and will be available to answer questions about the products and the company. Dr. Hoppe adds, “George is not only full of information and positivity—but he makes difficult information easy to understand using his keen sense of humor to keep us entertained while learning.”

The public is cordially invited to attend this 90 minute talk to learn how stress and toxins can impact health and the aging process. Question and answers will follow. Learn how Dr. Hoppe addresses the toxic overload we are all being subjected to, no matter how pure we try to be.

The Orenda website is available for perusal. For those interested in learning about the products or the “People Lifting People” philosophy of the Orenda International company, see “Addressing the Host” and other videos at www.ThisIsOrenda.com/DrDianaHoppe

This talk is free and the general public is welcome.

Glucosamine To Help Protect Cartilage Suggests BestMultivitamins.co.uk

Recent research has shown that supplements including glucosamine do in fact protect and build cartilage tissue rather than purely acting as a pain killer designed specifically for joints.

Glucosamine To Help Protect Cartilage Suggests BestMultivitamins.co.uk

Glucosamine is a compound that exists naturally within the body. Made up of glucose and glutamine the compound is needed within the body to aid the formation process of cartilage and other body tissues. As humans grow the production of glucosamine slows which weakens the cartilage that serves to protect our joints.

Glucosamine made from chitin, a chemical found within the shells of shrimp, crab, lobster etc, is extremely popular both in sulphate tablet form and in liquids such as sports drinks. Vegetarian glucosamine supplements are also available from many health stores, which may be suitable for individuals with allergies to shellfish. In recent years there have been many studies that questioned the potency of the supplement, which has become popular in many health stores across the world.

Doctors are now beginning to stand by glucosamine in supplement form after recent research has proven that easily accessible supplements do in fact protect and build cartilage rather than just combating pain symptoms. Rheumatologist Dr Rod Hughes, from St Peters Hospital, Surrey, explains that the recent breakthroughs in research conducted in Belgium have shown that previous studies concluding that Glucosamine is merely a placebo must indeed have been inaccurate.

‘The results showed a statistically significant difference which could be measured in thickening of the cartilage,’ said Dr Hughes. ‘Glucosamine is one of the chemicals of which cartilage is made, feeding the chondrocytes which produce the strong healthy cartilage which is the shock absorber of the joints and it’s that which wears out in osteoarthritis.

Successful athletes, particularly those playing high impact sports that place joints and cartilage under huge pressure have often proclaimed the benefits of such supplements.

“Sports men and woman can now feel reassured in their choice to use supplements to strengthen their cartilage and protect their joints. It is never too early to think about looking after your body.” explains Tom Kalton owner of popular health blog bestmultivitamins.co.uk.

It is always important to understand however that supplements are not an alternative but merely a supportive measure to a healthy lifestyle. The benefits of a well rounded and nutritional diet, as well as sensible workouts that include proper stretching, warm ups and cool downs, are all equally as important and must not be forgotten.

As with any medical problem it is always advisable to conduct your doctor if you are experiencing joint issues.
