Driver Powered by StemKine
The Winning Formula
Our Role Model, Dr. Joe Smarda, let's his race car do the talking for the benefits of StemKine.
Brain on Fire
Connecting Opioid Use, Pain Relief, Depression and Addiction
We have been testing the blood sera of our clients for biomarkers related to Brain Inflammation and also the Blood Brain Barrier (BBB). These clients suffer from chronic pain and autoimmune neuro-disorders. All have elevated inflammation biomarkers and most have indications of a leaky BBB.
European Porsche Cup and ImmunLink Therapies
Keeping our Role Model Healthy and Sharp
Our immunoLinkTM Therapies Role Model, Dr. Josef Smarda, considers Stem-Kine and StemTrophin key to his racing success. It takes total concentration to drive a 650 hp Porsche Race Car around the F1 Hockenheimring.
Can Exercise Make You Sick?
Impact of Excessive Exercise on Immune System
A common perception exists that overtraining will cause athletes to become ill. In fact, results from a survey conducted by the Gatorade Sports Science Institute show that nearly 90 percent of 2,700 high school and collegiate coaches and athletic trainers believe that overtraining can compromise the immune system and make athletes sick.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Brain Health
Omega-3s Improve Brain Function and Structure in Older Adults
Our ProDHATM 1000 is in the long-chain omega-3 polyunsaturated family of fatty acids (LC-n3-FA). Seafish are rich in Omega 3s. In this study (see: http://cercor.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2013/06/23/cercor.bht163.full), researchers found a significant increase in executive functions after LC-n3-FA compared with placebo (P = 0.023). In parallel, LC-n3-FA exerted beneficial effects on white matter microstructural integrity and gray matter volume in frontal, temporal, parietal, and limbic areas primarily of the left hemisphere, and on carotid intima media thickness and diastolic blood pressure.
Imm-Kine and Immune System Health
Action of Lactibaccilus Fermentum
The main ingredient in our Imm-Kine is the probiotic bacteria Lactibaccilus Fermentum. For many years, probiotic bacteria have been known to confer health benefits to the consumer. One possible mechanism for this may be the ability of probiotic bacteria to modulate immune responses.
CoQ10/Ubiquitin For Power and Endurance
Study Results-Sound Science
It is important to me that all our immunoLinkTM solutions are backed by sound science. The focus in this posting is CoQ10 or Ubiquinol. It is a component of the electron transport chain and participates in aerobic cellular respiration, generating energy in the form of ATP. Ninety-five percent of the human body’s energy is generated this way. But what does this mean to you?
Serrapeptase as an Anti-inflammatory
A Key Ingredient of InflamaZyme
Many people in Asia and Europe use Serrapeptase for pain relief and heart health. It is viewed as a healthy alternative to salicylates, ibuprofen and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
Serrapeptase digests non-living tissue, blood clots, cysts, and arterial plaque and inflammation in all forms. The late German physician, Dr. Hans Nieper, used Serrapeptase to treat arterial blockage in his coronary patients. Serrapeptase protects against stroke and is reportedly more effective and quicker than EDTA Chelation treatments in removing arterial plaque.
BNDF, StemTrophin and Mental Health
Keeping Your Brain Happy and Healthy
A protein called brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is a key factor for not only creating new neurons, but also for protecting existing neurons and encouraging synapse formation within the brain. The defense of these neurons is vital for our thinking, learning, and brain function process. Low levels of BDNF are associated with a multitude of neurological conditions, including depression, anorexia nervosa, epilepsy, schizophrenia, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Thankfully, the production of BDNF is completely within our own hands, and can be activated by voluntary physical exercise , caloric reduction, intellectual stimulation, curcumin, and docosahexacnoic acid (DHA), an omega-3 fat (see: Improving Brain Function With BDNF).
Mesenchymal Stem Cells as Anti-inflammatory Agents
StemTrophin Can Dampen Inflammatory Pain
Our StemTrophin Activates your Mesenchymal Stem Cells. Why does this matter? The properties of the cells include the power to act as anti-inflammatories; hence, they can dampen inflammation related pain AND awaken systems to optimize healing, cellular regeneration and functionality. The science behind this is solid. The authors of Mesenchymal Stem/Stromal Cells (MSCs): Role as Guardians of Inflammation (Joo, Youn Oh et al.) Molecular Therapy (2012); 20 1, 14–20. doi:10.1038/mt.2011.211 concluded: "The role of MSCs as guardians against excessive inflammation explains many of the beneficial effects observed with administration of the cells in animal models".
Curcumin and Aging Health
Not All Curcumin Based Supplements Are Created Equal
There have been many academic publications on the miracles of Curcumin for Aging Health. Here's a description of its therapeutic properties: The desirable preventive or putative therapeutic properties of curcumin have also been considered to be associated with its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Because free-radical-mediated peroxidation of membrane lipids and oxidative damage of DNA and proteins are believed to be associated with a variety of chronic pathological complications such as cancer, atherosclerosis, and neurodegenerative diseases, curcumin is thought to play a vital role against these pathological conditions. The anti-inflammatory effect of curcumin is most likely mediated through its ability to inhibit cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), lipoxygenase (LOX), and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS). COX-2, LOX, and iNOS are important enzymes that mediate inflammatory processes. Improper upregulation of COX-2 and/or iNOS has been associated with the pathophysiology of certain types of human cancer as well as inflammatory disorders. Because inflammation is closely linked to tumor promotion, curcumin with its potent anti-inflammatory property is anticipated to exert chemopreventive effects on carcinogenesis. Hence, the past few decades have witnessed intense research devoted to the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin. In this review, we describe both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin, the mode of action of curcumin, and its therapeutic usage against different pathological conditions see: (Adv Exp Med Biol. 2007;595:105-25).
The immunoLink and Autism Spectrum Disorder
With These Results, Think What We Can do for You.
We have discovered the ASD Children we treat have differing levels of chronic inflammation, oxidative stress and stem cell health. We have pre-tested and treated about 50 children to date. We then re-test after 6 months of our customized treatment plans to check on the children's improvement at the cell/molecular levels. For some of the children, we are seeing startling improvements. Parents are also reporting a moderating of symptoms. Here I would like to share the results from the testing of one of our ASD children.
