Repairing Damaged Cells, A Powerful Healthy Aging Strategy, Part 1
April 24, 2018
Prof. Garth Nicolson is recognized as a pioneer in research on the mitochondria, the energy factories within cells. Mitochondrial dysfunction plays a role in a myriad of diseases, as well as in the aging process. Fatigue is its cardinal symptom. The mitochondria are implicated in chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia, Alzheimer’s Disease, chronic infections like Lyme Disease, Gulf War Syndrome, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome and obesity, autism, and even some cancers. Prof. Nicolson has demonstrated that membrane lipid replacement therapy (LRT) with glycerolphospholipids (NT Factor) can facilitate recovery from many of these disorders. Clinical studies have demonstrated that LRT can increase energy levels by 40% or more. What companion nutrients also support mitochondrial performance? How much NT Factor do you need to take? How fast does it take effect? Prof. Nicolson shares exciting results of clinical trials he’s currently undertaking with LRT. Learn about NT Factor clinical trials by clicking HERE.
