Which ingredient is the best way fight wrinkles? Retinol, peptides, collagen, stem cells, plancenta, amino acids or vitamin C

Which ingredient is the best way fight wrinkles? Retinol, peptides, collagen, stem cells, plancenta, amino acids or vitamin C

Growth factors: We have known since the 70s that retinoids and retinols are great collagen stimulators (which equals wrinkle fighters). In this century, we developed collagen growth factors which are derived from actual human skin and are necessary for collagen to thrive, thus reducing and eliminating wrinkles. Note i did not say "appearance of wrinkles". Skinmedica is my favorite product to contain these. ...Read more

Which combination of amino acids produce dystrophin gene?

Which combination of amino acids produce dystrophin gene?

DNA: Genes are made up of nucleic acids called DNA. Those genes are then transcribed into amino acid sequences called proteins. The dystrophin gene is much too large to spell out in a DNA sequence, and its protein is much too large to spell out in an amino acid sequence. Here is a link to some more information on the gene. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/gene/1756 ...Read more

Which causes muscle cells to generate new cells testosterone or Mechano growth factor?

Which causes muscle cells to generate new cells testosterone or Mechano growth factor?

Muscle growth: Many men desire muscular development and this has been so probably for many thousands of years. As a physician I have seen this done consistently well and healthy through sensible weight training which stimulates muscle development through human growth factor, Testosterone and other natural endogenous substances. Avoid exogenous supplements (such as steroids and probably Mechano ) Go natural! ...Read more

What nutrients stimulate angiogenesis?

What nutrients stimulate angiogenesis?

InternalBodyControls: If food made us what we are, they we would likely look like what we eat; reality far more complex. The bodies we inhabit: chemical wizards taking apart molecules & reassembling them like fantastic complex tinker toys under internal controls, called biochemistry. Current knowledge: ischemia, ?pressure diff. & flow may trigger complex responses ?angiogenesis & ?inhibitory controls: balance critical. ...Read more

Is it real that januvia (sitagliptin) 100mg made pancreas cells produce more insulin ( made beta cells more active )?

Is it real that januvia (sitagliptin) 100mg made pancreas cells produce more insulin ( made beta cells more active )?

Incretin: Januvia (sitagliptin) is an incretin which inhibits the breakdown of an enzyme called dpp-4. Dpp-4 breaks down glp-1. Glp-1 stimulates Insulin and inhibits glucagon (which raises glucose). Inhibition of glp-1 breakdown means it can stimulate more Insulin and inhibit more glucagon. ...Read more

Can a blood cell's Hemoglobin molecule lack iron component

Can a blood cell's Hemoglobin molecule lack iron component

Yes: Hemoglobin is the molecule which has iron attached to,it and carries and releases oxygen. Iron deficiency can occur with a normal hemoglobin value, though usually it is decreased (anemia). Tests for the amount of iron in your blood can be performed independently of hemoglobin. ...Read more

Electron transport chains and ATP synthase enzymes are embedded within what?

Electron transport chains and ATP synthase enzymes are embedded within what?

Mitochondria: It sounds like you have been reading about mitochondria, the powerhouse organelle of cells. These organelles use methods to create the cellular currency of energy, Adenosine triphosphate. You probably read that a portion of the ATP synthase complex is embedded in the mitochondrial membrane. Read about it here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3278611/ You can consult me if you have Q's ...Read more

LDH Isoenzymes lab test results: LDH total- 153. LD1- 32, LD2-30, LD3, 20, LD4- 8, LD5- 10. Are these results normal? Is the LD1&LD2 ratio abnormal?

LDH Isoenzymes lab test results: 
LDH total- 153. LD1- 32, LD2-30, LD3, 20, LD4- 8, LD5- 10. Are these results normal? Is the LD1&LD2 ratio abnormal?

Historic test: Matthew, the LDH isoenzyme test is ancient history, almost never ordered nowadays. And your LDH is normal. The old 1-2 ratio is an antique screen for a heart attack, and it's neither sensitive nor specific. I know you're obsessing over the idea that you have lymphoma, and a few websites suggest this as a screening test -- but it's not. Focus on building a life for yourself. ...Read more

?

Unlikely 2B related: Total and LDL cholesterol look ok, unless you have heart disease or multiple risk factors for heart disease, then LDL goal is <100. Inocmplete rbbb can be normal. Sometimes is just actually a "r s r-prime" pattern in certain electrocardiogram leads- many times a normal finding seen in healthy young military recruits. Incomplete rbbb can progress to a complete right bundle block. ...Read more
