A Novel, Newly-Discovered Nutraceutical, Part 1
April 20, 2022
The Annatto plant is valued as a rich source of tocotrienols and a novel, newly-discovered nutraceutical: geranylgeraniol (GG). Dr. Barrie Tan, a Ph.D. biochemist who discovered GG, and Dr. David Brady, former director of the Human Nutrition Institute at the University of Bridgeport and author of numerous books and scientific papers, join us to discuss the roles of tocotrienols and GG in human health. Traditional forms of vitamin E supplements—the tocopherols—are being superseded by tocotrienols as more therapeutic forms of vitamin E. Tocotrienols have shown promise in oncology, for supporting liver health, and for protecting cell membranes as potent fat-soluble antioxidants. GG is ubiquitous as a precursor of diverse compounds including CoQ10, active vitamin K, sex steroids, and proteins. It is useful as a general preventive supplement as well as for specific applications like offsetting CoQ10 depletion in statin users, in metabolic syndrome, and for staving off sarcopenia. Drs. Brady and Tan share their experience in dosing Annatto products, which come in a variety of iterations, alone or teamed with other supplements. Click HERE for part 2.

ENCORE: A Holistic Approach to Pain, Part 1
April 19, 2022
Addressing the underlying causes of pain and dysfunction: Dr. Arkady Lipnitsky takes a holistic approach to pain at RebalanceNYC, www.rebalanceNYC.com, a multidisciplinary anti-aging and rejuvenation clinic in midtown Manhattan. Calling steroid shots, perfunctory physical therapy, drugs and surgery mere “bandaid” approaches to pain conditions, Dr. Lipnitsky prefers to analyze the underlying causes of low back, neck, knee, shoulder and hip problems, which he says can usually be traced to maladaptive movement patterns. He believes prolonged sitting is a fundamental contributor to chronic pain that runs counter to our evolutionary blueprint. A pioneer in the use of a variety of modalities including movement analysis, electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), extracorporeal shock wave therapy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cells, needling, along with nutritional support, Dr. Lipnitsky individualizes programs to help athletes, performers, and ordinary strivers achieve their goals. The key is to develop a consistent program of beneficial movement and to unlearn counter-productive patterns that prolong the injury cycle. In many cases, joint replacement and back surgery can be avoided with less invasive and more broadly therapeutic techniques. Click HERE for part 2.
