Comparative effect of Piper betle, Chlorella vulgaris and tocotrienol-rich fraction on antioxidant enzymes activity in cellular ageing of human diploid fibroblasts

Posted August 16, 2013

Human diploid fibroblasts (HDFs) undergo a limited number of cellular divisions in culture and progressively reach a state of irreversible growth arrest, a process termed cellular ageing. Even though beneficial effects of Piper betle, Chlorella vulgaris and tocotrienol-rich fraction (TRF) have been reported, ongoing studies in relation to ageing is of interest to determine possible protective effects that may reverse the effect of ageing.

Omega-3 fatty acid, DHA switches off cellular inflammation to slash chronic disease risk

Posted August 12, 2013

Medical researchers have become increasingly aware that many chronic illnesses ranging from cardiovascular disease and cancer to dementia and arthritis are fueled by excess cellular inflammation. Systemic inflammation creates an environment that is conducive to genetic alterations and can lead to immune system dysfunction as macrophages, normally charged with the function of gobbling up pathogenic invaders, become ineffective as they permit rogue cancer cells to go undetected. Poor diet leading to an omega fat imbalance increases inflammation throughout the body and primes the mechanism that promotes disease.

Carnosine Provides Superior Cellular Protection and May Extend Lifespan

Posted October 20, 2012

Most allopathic medical practitioners would argue that the process of aging is nothing more than a normal process whereby cells deteriorate at a predetermined rate controlled by genetically determined commands and heredity. Standing in stark opposition is a rapidly growing body of research and documented evidence to indicate that aging is a product of many varied lifestyle choices including physical activity, smoking and most importantly, the type of diet we regularly consume.

Redirecting the Body’s Flow of Energy with Chakra Meditation

Posted April 30, 2012

The word Chakra is a Sanskrit word which translates to mean a circle or vortex. There are seven chakras in the body. These chakras are energy centers which control the distribution and flow of energy. If there is a partial or full blockage within one of these energy centers it has a negative effect on our physical, mental and emotional well-being. These blockages can be restored to normal flow by following a simple chakra meditation process.
