sorry, i just saw your request.
methyl b-12 is a form of b-12 that has had an enzymatic reaction done to it that turns it into the methyl form. it regenerates nerves. so far it has
been successful in treating autism, diabetic neuropathy and several other delibating diseases of the nervous system.
apparently, what happens is, the person suffering with neuropathy, autism and etc, is lacking the enzyme to convert b-12 into its methyl form, and
because the methyl form is normally present to regenerate nerves, the nerves don't repair, and as they degrade, they don't recover. so when the
enyzme is used to convert b-12 into its methyl form, it bypasses that particular problem, once again allowing the body to repair damaged, aging nerves
with the methyl b-12 form. it has to be the methyl b-12 though. normal b-12 is not the same thing.
even if we don't have a disease that hampers the enzyme that converts b-12 to methyl b-12, as we age, we make less and less of the enzyme, so it's
always useful for the elderly to supplement methyl b-12.
telomerase is an enzyme that rejuvenates non-coding dna, called telomeres, that acts like a protective stop loss on the portion of the dna strand that
makes copies of itself. the dna strand has a set amount of times it can replicate before the non coding protection is used up. what telomerase does
is recover the non-coding dna strands, so that the coding dna can continue making replications. i wouldn't suggest using it for more than a short
period of time, just long enough to get him out of the woods.
then the astrogalus, which has a natural form of telomerase in it, and is used in chinese medicines, is a more gentle approach, and i think, likely to
be alot safer. if the non-coding dna is not refreshed, the replicating dna breaks down and the cell dies. apparently, cancer cells use telomerase
as well although the form it uses is somewhat different. i imagine that anyone taking it regularly, needs to be overseen by a doctor with regular
blood tests to be sure they aren't developing any side issues from it. that's why i said, only a short period of time. i mean this stuff grows the
fur back, in the right color, on old mice and restores their aging brains. it's being used by humans now but is extremely expensive and still pretty
experimental as far as i'm concerned. i mean, suzanne summers uses it but i am not able to ask her how it's working out for her or if she stopped
taking it. she certainly looks good for 60 something years old.
the alpha lipoic acid and resvinatrol are anti-oxidants.
the echinacea is an immune system stimulant. it works like an anti-biotic but better, as it fights viruses as well as bacterial infections.. people
who have auto immune disease or allergies to daises, should not use it, however.
co-enzyme Q-10 is good for your heart and kidneys.
