Learning about Cholophyllin

Saturday, May 22nd, 2010

Chlorophyllin is a semi-synthetic mixture of sodium copper salts derived from chlorophyll and is water-soluble.

Carcinogens in our food (like well-done meat) and environment can cause DNA mutations that lead to cancer and other diseases.

Protecting against DNA mutations is crucial to preventing disease and prolonging life.

Chlorophyllin demonstrates protection against numerous carcinogens.

Experimental evidence suggests that chlorophyllin may help prevent liver, breast, colon and pancreatic cancers.

Your Own Personal Health Guide

Since the human genome discovery that we have about 30,000 genes, they have now come up with a DNA chip, a silicon or glass wafer with tiny holes just large enough to contain short DNA strands, each containing a single gene. Your DNA chip will allow scientists to identify the unique messenger RNA (mRNA) created by each of your genes.

According to  physicist Albert-Laxzlo Barabasi the map of life, your DNA chip, will be able to tell doctors and nutritionists exactly what your body needs to be completely healthy.

This interesting concept comes from Dr. Richard Restak, The New Brain, pp. 127-128

Exciting News

Wednesday, August 19th, 2009

Exciting news as we come into the new world of nutrigenomics. Nutrigenomics looks at how the nutrients that we consume whether by food or supplements interact with our genes to impact our health. New research gives us information that fish oil with EPA and DHA could possibly nullify the genetic disposition of some people for developing cardiovascular disease.

Another study shows that green tea polyphenols and vitamin D produce a synergistic effect that increases bone mineral density and reduce inflammation and DNA damage.

Inflammation as we know plays a major role in cardiovascular disease, obesity, and metabolic syndrome. Natural anti-inflammatory compounds found in fish oil, green tea, and cinnamon reduce the inflammation and lesson the possibility of these chronic conditions.
