DNA testing: Is it ready for Prime-Time? Part 1
August 15, 2019
Dr. Sharon Hausman-Cohen, Chief Medical Director of IntellxxDNA, shares her perspective on the genetic testing revolution. What’s the difference between a mutation and a SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism)? How does the IntellxxDNA test differ from, say, 23andMe? Isn’t it potentially scary to find out you have a “bad” gene, like the ApoE4 gene that’s associated with Alzheimer’s Disease risk? Can genetic risk factors be overcome with diet, exercise, and targeted supplements? IntellxxDNA pinpoints obesity genes, genes that predispose to diabetes and heart disease, macular degeneration, autoimmune disorders, thyroid problems and osteoporosis. Certain SNPs predict the likelihood of neurodegenerative diseases when exposed to environmental toxins like mercury and glyphosate. Others may dictate higher requirements for antioxidants, B vitamins, magnesium, vitamin D, and choline. Why is the IntellxxDNA test only available through health practitioners? Some critics say genetic testing is only in its infancy and not yet ready for primetime—is this mistaken? What can genomic testing tell us about remedial strategies for autism?

Curcumin and Magnesium for Brain Health, Part 1
July 30, 2019
Protocol for Life Balance Senior Nutrition Education Manager Neil Levin weighs in on nutritional strategies for preventing cognitive decline. While BigPharma flounders in its multi-billion-dollar efforts to find a “magic bullet” drug against Alzheimer’s Disease, an estimated 28 million Baby Boomers are destined to suffer from the debilitating condition by mid-century. A new study suggests that simple lifestyle changes can mitigate risk even in those with Alzheimer’s genes. Levin discusses the science substantiating the brain benefits of curcumin and magnesium. But bio-availability is a problem; most forms of curcumin and magnesium don’t cross the blood-brain barrier. Levin highlights research on Curcumin SPLC (Cogumin) and magnesium threonate (Protosorb Magnesium). Other ancillary nutrients like phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylserine, bacopa, huperzine, CoQ10, fish oil and tocotrienols also deserve consideration in a brain-protective regimen.
