With India and China changing the market demand, we now see that the value of gold is changing. Something to think about.

Protandim at VCU Medical Center on Hypertension

Protandim Study #12 as we’re calling it, focuses on Protandim’s ability to reduce hypertension and what it can mean for human intervention in future studies. This is followup review from the previous VCU study published in the American Heart Association study, and adds: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22870869 Significance: Pathobiological mechanisms which contribute to pulmonary vasoconstriction, lung vascular remodeling and the development of right heart failure include the generation of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species and the response of lung vascular and cardiac cells to these molecules. We review the information regarding oxidant stress balanced by antioxidant mechanisms and the role of oxidants and antioxidants in hypoxic pulmonary hypertension and their potential role in an animal model of severe pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Recent Advances: In human lung tissue from patients with idiopathic PAH we find reduced SOD activity and high expression of the oxidant stress markers nitrotyrosine and 8-OH-guanosine. In the Sugen 5416/chronic […]
