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

Aging and Genes: Nutrition is Key

Each year, millions of Americans die of preventable, often chronic disease. This happens because people believe disease is caused by things they can’t control: inherited genes or aging. Neither is true. Health experts know that about 80% of health status is determined by daily choices and gene activity, not inherited genes or age.

Most genes are active day and night. They respond to many activities, especially nutrition. Other areas play a role, including, exercise, stress, weight and inflammation. In fact, it’s normal to replace about 1 billion cells every hour, and over time, that complex process of cell division can cause mutations and errors. What’s more, those risks are markedly increased by an unhealthy lifestyle.

A new, breakthrough article called, “Telomeres Genes and Aging” explores these critical issues and includes the latest research. The article includes critical “how to” tips to prevent chronic disease and improve longevity! It’s based on more than 50 credible source links, including numerous studies and expert sources. Some key findings are:

1. Nutrition and micro-nutrient intakes (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants) are key factors for gene activation and repair, including telomere length and longevity.

2. Other lifestyle areas contribute to gene health, including weight status, sleep, stress, activity, etc., and they all contribute to gene function, replication and repair.

3. Sirtuin proteins also help to activate or silence genes, especially those for metabolism, stress response, brain function, longevity, etc. Sirtuins are also enhanced by nutrient intake and harmed by nutrient deficiencies.

There is now enough research to show how to maximize gene health and replication, including telomere length, health and longevity. By making the right choices, gene health can be maximized, including the repair of mutations and genetic errors. Humans can largely control their health and destiny today!

More Healthcare press releases launches Baby Personality Quiz has launched a new, online Baby Personality Quiz which highlights several key traits to look out for when analysing a baby’s temperament.

With the help of the Baby Personality Quiz* on the Children and Parenting Health Centre, users can identify their baby’s personality by answering a series of simple questions about their behaviour. The results of the quiz can then be analysed to identify their behaviour patterns. Essential information about the best approach in managing a child’s behaviour habits can also be found, with a simple step-by-step guide to keeping in sync with the baby. It could even help users to work in tandem with their child’s temperament and personality to make life easier for both parent and child.

Whether the child is feisty or easy-going, the answer to identifying its personality and behaviour patterns lies in a number of key areas. According to paediatrician Dr William Carey, author of ‘Understanding Your Child’s Temperament’, these include:

Activity/energy level – if the child has high or low energy levels, parents need to look for ways to keep them moving at a pace that’s comfortable for them Approach to newness – a naturally hesitant or shy baby will need extra reassurance and patience to overcome their shyness.

Intensity – if a baby is laid back, they can get lost in the shuffle of family life and vice versa. If the baby is intense they must be taught to deal with the curves of life

Sensitivity – if a baby has high sensitivity to lights, noise or texture, parents must be patient and look for ways to avoid sensory overload such as the lighting and the type of clothes the baby wears.

Regularity – if everything is unpredictable, potty, naps, moods, parents have to let go of their controlling ways and loosen up. Conversely, if a baby likes structure, parents might have to adhere to the schedule they crave

Persistence – puzzles are great tools to lengthen attention span, along with a daily dose of bedtime reading.

Overall mood – parents should take the time to observe their baby’s daily patterns and what makes them smile for a happier baby.

More Healthcare press releases Reveals New Research Into Brits’ Summer Fitness Regimes has revealed new research showing that Brits are going for gold as they gear up for a summer of sport. However, the research also showed that many are sustaining unnecessary workout-related injuries.

Over half of survey respondents (53%) said they have started a new fitness regime in 2012, with the main motivation among those who have done so being to keep fit rather than lose weight.

Their good intentions are making them feel less stressed (44%) and more confident (31%), yet nearly one in five (16%) has sustained an injury. As well as bruises, the most common injuries are ankle or wrist sprains (26%), shin splints (23%), pulling a muscle (23%) and hamstring injuries (19%).

Over one third (39%) from the survey of 2,000 people who said they have started a new fitness routine in 2012 look online for fitness information. In fact, among the top ten search terms on’s fitness centre are ‘hamstrings’ and ‘shin splints’, reflecting the common injuries identified in the research.

Richard Callender, fitness instructor and TV trainer from ITV’s ‘The Biggest Loser’, said: “It’s really encouraging to see so many people getting more active in 2012. Everyone has different motivations for exercising, whether it’s to keep fit, lose weight, de-stress or just to have fun and socialise with friends and family, but it’s vital they all know how to exercise safely.”

The research shows that for people to continue this positive step, stay healthy and prepare for a summer of sport, they need to be taking greater care when exercising. Over a quarter (27%) of people surveyed admit they do not feel confident they are exercising in a correct and safe way/ Reasons for injury include not following instructions properly (28%), exercising too strenuously (34%) or not being offered proper inductions (23%). A third (33%) of the injuries has led to a long-term health problem.

Dr Rob Hicks, GP and contributor, said: “Exercising is one of the best ways for people to stay fit and healthy, and it’s important that people look after themselves and follow the correct instructions when they exercise and know what level of exercise they should be adopting. There are both short and long-term health consequences of not exercising safely and people should ensure they feel comfortable with what they are doing before they start.”

Further findings from the research showed that more women (54%) than men (52%) have taken up a new fitness routine in 2012. The age group most likely to have started a fitness routine this year is those between 18-24 (64%).

Researchers task force, led by faculties of T-Protocol, registered Genom Project as controlled genom project in the hosted database of NCBI, a publication matter authority and function assigned organization under oversee of Department of Health & Human Services, reached once to share the exegetical impression officially pre-published concerning the understanding specific spectrum of symptoms covering boroad range of character usually complained and observed through chronic inflammation, granuloma, some types of lymphoma and various uncommon symptoms to let physician scientists suspecting indicium of neurological diseases, NIDO disease, an unique type of post hetero-plastic implantation chronic inflammation syndrome and setting Massachusetts indications of treatments standardized manual (Massachusetts manual) & diagnostic and standardized medical treatment manual for post hetero-plastic inplantation chronic inflammation syndrome, specific edition against NIDO Disease.

The once defined causes of NIDO disease, an unique type of post hetero-plastic implantation chronic inflammation syndrome are considered each of a common living organism to cause conformational diseases like Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease and kinds of and a set of biochemical and physical reaction and response realized by cross-species gene- mutation, as biotransformation, easily describing natural physiological and biochemical changes in vivo substrate of human bodies. After this studies, standardized protocol of gene therapy and applied stem cell therapy is now in practice and on available.

Next Genetic Natural Stem Cell Therapy Established

Division of Gene Medicine & Stem Cell Application, School of Medical Science, complete the research and established completely new protocol totally recovering natural bio mechanism of hair regrowth.

The researchers, led by Lord. Prof. Dr. Daichent Otto Rie, specified protein and genom to affect internal bio mechanism to generate hair and control the level of successful growth being low which is the baldness.

The key cast of the set of the bio cycle is hair follicles, which is stem cell on head skin and effect or holding function to cure many neurotic diseases and disorders like Alzheimer’s disease – Prion Disease and even Trion Disease (Post Hetero-Plastic Implantation Chronic Inflammation Syndrome; PhCIS) has absolutely unique character being retrieved absolute stem cell, which can recover the ability as stem cell after got adult. The key genom and DNA has been found through the Genom Project’s T-Protocol research developing in the government registered Genom Project since 2005. The most concentrated attention of researchers is not “what is cause” but “What protocol is best”.

The team of Prof.Daichent has successfully completed in vivo and in vivro experiment actually using voluntary patients whose types of hair loss being across over highly wide range extent to even lymphoma and cancer and finally established next genetic hair loss curing treatment protocol mainly composed of stem cell therapy and gene therapy.

Most of cases are treatable through entry level stem cell theraputic technique or HIV-1 Vector using high level technique but A20 introduction as gene therapy is required when treating patients being suffered from lymphoma, cancer or any neurotic diseases like Alzheimer’s disease – Prion Disease and even Trion Disease (Post Hetero-Plastic Implantation Chronic Inflammation Syndrome; PhCIS).

As Prof.Daichent points since 2005 being on School of Public Health of Harvard, in the treatment manual (published 2005), the key factor to overcome of lymphoma and chronic inflammation on human skin is extraordinary redundancy coding of polyglutamine DNA synthesis as the type of disease caused by pathological proteins and lack or heavy impairment of an specific DNA of A20.

Actually, the treatment protocol curing for baldness is also found through T-protocol which was essentially aimed at achieving causal and complete treatment of lymphoma, cancer, chronic inflammation and many neurotic diseases.

IS Clinical Improperly Using Phytoceuticals Inc Proprietary Research To Sell Products With Proven Quality Issues

PhytoCeuticals, Inc., strongly cautions its customers that some claims being made by IS Clinical about their products improperly uses scientific publications, clinical trials and research that are the exclusive property of PhytoCeuticals, Inc. and its founder, Dr. Mostafa Omar.

Dr. Mostafa Omar, PhytoCeutical’s president, is the highly respected developer and manufacturer of proprietary skin care formulations and the inventor of Stable Liquid L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C).

PhytoCeuticals has developed several formulations, including stabilized liquid L-Ascorbic Acid in 1994. The company had distributed these products through Cellex-C, SkinCeuticals and IS Clinical. PhytoCeuticals permitted these companies the use of these scientific publications, clinical trials and research citations to support the marketing of PhytoCeuticals formulations.

PhytoCeuticals terminated its relationship (July 1, 2008) with IS Clinical by Innovation Skincare (Science of Skincare Inc.). Therefore IS Clinical no longer distributes any products using PhytoCeuticals formulations.

In addition, these companies surrendered the rights to use this materials for advertising and publicity claims. The only legal use of these studies is to support the sale of products formulated or developed by Dr. Omar and PhytoCeuticals, Inc.

PhytoCeuticals continues to retain the ownership of all its proprietary formulations, as well as the scientific research, publications, patents and grants from National Cancer Institute (NCI) and National Institute of Health (NIH).

Since the termination of the business relationship, PhytoCeuticals has received numerous requests from customers who have purchased IS Clinical products, (which do not contain PhytoCeuticals formulations) to exchange these IS Clinical products for genuine PhytoCeuticals PHYTO-C products.

Dr. Omar has stated that, “The acceptance of exchanges of IS Clinical new products for PhytoCeuticals PHYTO-C products was initially a courtesy to patients who thought they were still purchasing our formulations. It is my ethical duty to help and treat these patients – which is more important then making a profit. But we must be fair.”

Any purchaser of IS Clinical skincare products who is dissatisfied, should return these products to IS Clinical directly for refunds or substitute products. PhytoCeuticals has no responsibility and does not guarantee IS Clinical products.

PhytoCeuticals is currently is unaware of any controlled clinical testing, stability testing or research undertaken by IS Clinical with respect to the products it has been selling since July 1, 2008.

Dr. Mostafa Omar stated, “Normally a clinical study and testing of a new formulation takes at least 5 years or more before a product is launched into the marketplace. To the extent that IS Clinical claims that it has undertaken extensive research in connection with its products, customers should confirm that the research cited is genuine and not proprietary research using authentic PhytoCeuticals formulations.”

PhytoCeuticals, Inc. is the market leader in antioxidant skin care products. Established by Dr. Mostafa Omar and based in the United States, the company was awarded NCI grant #1 R43- CA83538-01A1 for “Prevention of UV Photoinjury in Skin by Antioxidants”, NCI Grant #1-R43-CA94484-01 for “Photoprotection of Skin by Topical Selenium” , Olive patent # 6,743,499 B2 and Aleoferon patent # 4861761 & NIH.

Menopause Blamed For Rise In Receding Hair

Hair loss is often the hardest aspect of growing old, but for a number of people the problem is not confined to their later years.

And it’s not just men suffering from the affliction, with studies suggesting an increasingly number of post-menopausal women are finding their hairlines receding.

This new epidemic is a type of alopecia, which damages hair follicles so that hair falls out and cannot grow back.

The condition known as Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia (FFA) can cause women to lose up to five inches from their hairline as well as their eyebrows. If FFA goes undiagnosed, women can even lose hair at the sides and back of their head.

Scientists believe that FFA is a result of the immune system attacking hair follicles, which causes inflammation at the root. This can damage stem cells in the follicles and prevents hair from growing back entirely.

The only treatment available involves controlling this inflammation, so only offers a reduction in overall hair loss rather than a cure.

However, the damage for most has already been done and the only alternative is to undergo a hair transplant.

The Hospital Group, one of the country’s leading cosmetic surgery providers, is at the forefront of hair restoration surgery, treatments and techniques. Those seeking a solution to their hair loss can undergo a hair transplant, which involves splitting the follicles of existing hairs and relocating them in the sparse area.

Providing expert advice and assistance, The Group carries out more hair transplantations than any other clinic in the UK and recognises that hair restoration is an art just as much as a surgical procedure.

Since The Hospital Group was established in 1992, it has grown from a small pharmaceutical company to one of the UK’s foremost weight loss surgery providers.

Boots Stocks New Alli Weight Loss Product

Boots have announced the arrival of alli, a new over the counter weight loss medicine. alli (Orlistat 60mg), available at Boots without prescription and is suitable for adults with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 28 or over, who are prepared to make changes to their diet – and Advantage Card holders who purchase alli from Boots are eligible for a whole host of added savings and benefits.

Alli Weight Loss

As one of UK’s leading healthcare retailers, Boots is a popular destination for those wanting to find out more about how to lose weight safely and effectively through taking alli. Boots pharmacists are on hand for expert, personalised help and advice without an appointment, and will be able to recommend the best way to help customers lose weight with the help of the weight loss aid, alli.

Weight loss advice from Boots experts:

“If customers want to lose weight, their pharmacist is a good first point of call,” said Boots Pharmacist Angela Chalmers, “They will be able to ascertain a method of weight loss which would be suitable, provide advice and set realistic goals. They are there to help the customer and monitor their progress, so they really don’t have to go it alone. They don’t even have to make an appointment, just pop into their local Boots store.”

The first step towards losing weight is for customers to find out their BMI, which for a healthy person is between 18.5 and 24.9. Boots has installed easy-to-use Healthy-Weight Check Machines in larger stores throughout the UK which enable customers to ensure they are making the right weight-loss decision for their individual needs. The machines give a healthy weight assessment that measures their height, weight, and BMI at the cost of just 50 pence.

For those on a reduced calorie and lower fat diet, they may find it helpful to consider supplementation, to help ensure they are meeting all their nutritional needs while on a diet.

Boots Positive Healthcare Technical Expert Nick Bennett said: “If customers are taking a weight loss product that reduces fat absorption, then they may wish to consume extra fat soluble vitamins and important fatty acids such as EPA and DHA which may otherwise be lacking in the diet. A good way to do this is by building a foundation of supplementation to include a complete A-Z of vitamins and minerals, an omega 3 supplement, such as a high strength fish oil, and a probiotic supplement to help maintain the health of the digestive tract while it experiences potentially radical changes in food intake.”
