The Keys to Prevention of
E. Wheeler, Ph.D., RD
There is considerable interest
in factors that can either stop or reverse the effects of premature aging.
Several authors have shown that by increasing levels of Human Growth Hormone
(HGH) many of the symptoms associated with aging could be reduced or partially
These findings have stimulated
considerable interest in the sale of various products that have been suggested
to contain HGH. Unfortunately, the ingestion of HGH will not have an effect
on blood levels of HGH. This is due to the fact that the HGH molecule
is too large to be absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract. Consequently,
research focus has concentrated on the pursuit of factors that may help
stimulate HGH secretion by the pituitary gland. Such compounds are known
Various secretagues have been
suggested over the past few years. For example, compounds such as amino
acids, herbal extracts, biotin, vitamin B6 and vitamin E have been suggested
as secretagues. However, most of these investigations have focused entirely
on HGH but not the underlying causes of low levels of HGH. These issues
involved the stimulation of Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GRH). Furthermore,
changes to cellular DNA profiles have not been addressed as probable causes
of low HGH.
GRH with its 44 amino acid
peptide triggers the release of HGH. Moreover, Pero (1999) found that
changes to cellular DNA structure were responsible for GRH deficiencies.
Changes to DNA structure were associated with factors responsible for
premature aging such as nutritional deficiencies, environment and pollutants.
Therefore, the key to prevention of premature aging contains many factors.
In the 20th Century, science
proved the key to cellular life and function was the message center of
deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). Thus, DNA has a significant effect on both
GRH and HGH. DNA has been shown to contain the keys to both cellular health
and aging. However, several factors such as aging, environmental toxins,
disease and stress can permanently alter the cellular DNA message and
result in premature aging, poor health or death.
The scientific staff at Wachters'
has pioneered the development of products that support cellular health.
Now, the scientists at Wachters' have spent several years in researching
and developing a product that would support normal cellular DNA function.
This research involved the investigation of both herbal and dietary factors,
which affect the repair, or replenishment of our natural cellular DNA.
Consequently, for the 21st Century, this effort has resulted in the most
revolutionary product available on the market today, WDNA.
WDNA, unlike any other product, provides all the factors necessary to
support healthy DNA. There is no other formula on the market that has
been exclusively designed to support healthy cellular DNA.
contains both nutritional factors such as riboflavin, vitamin B6, L-Arginine,
L-Methionine and DNA. It also contains herbal factors such as Uncaria
tormentosa and wild yam root that affect DNA repair. The 1996 Nobel Prize
for Medicine was awarded to the research group at Stanford University
for its findings concerning L-Arginine. Therefore, WDNA contains a complex
of secretague compounds. It is important to realize that WDNA must be
taken everyday as part of a total supplementation program.
Several popular books (The
Wrinkle Cure by Nicholas Perricone, MD)have been written concerning ways
to prevent premature aging. These books suggest "cures" for
premature aging that can range from questionable treatments with human
growth hormone (HGH) to mud baths. Unfortunately, most of these suggested
"cures" for aging are expensive, can be unsafe and simply don't
Another key to prevention of
premature aging is very simple - protein balance. Research has clearly
shown that the best aid to the prevention of premature aging is to eat
large amounts of protein while reducing carbohydrate intake. Skin, hair
and nails are over 80% protein. Consequently, by not consuming enough
dietary protein, we are literally starving our skin of an essential nutrient,
protein. This results in those unsightly wrinkles.
Dietary protein balance is
essential for repairing and restoring the damage done to our body's by
free radicals. Sugar, a simple carbohydrate, in our bodies causes the
formation of cell-damaging free radicals. These free radicals cause damage
to the skin that speeds up the aging process. The best anti-aging diet
is to choose a balance of protein sources. Furthermore, a diet rich in
balanced proteins lowers your blood sugar, gives you a healthy glow and
improves your mood. These important benefits from balanced proteins also
will boost how you look and feel.
I am seeing more clients with
premature aging today than ever before. As part of a consultation, I request
these clients to complete a Personal Profile where I can evaluate medical
as well as dietary issues. These profiles have shown that clients with
premature aging and wrinkles are not getting enough protein in their diet.
Moreover, they are not getting the right balance of different proteins
to aid in the prevention of premature wrinkles. Furthermore, most of these
clients are consuming 1/3 to ½ the optimum amount of protein. For
example, I suggest that women should consume a minimum of 50 grams protein
per day whereas men should consume no less than 80 grams per day. Surprisingly,
these clients look younger in days after their dietary protein intake
N Lean Protein Shake is a key to meeting your protein needs. These
delicious protein shakes will not only allow you to lose weight but also
to look younger at the same time. Simply have one or two of these delicious,
Less N Lean shakes daily. This will allow you to not only maintain a 'face-lift"
level of protein but also it will allow you to obtain the right combination
of different proteins to nourish and revitalize your skin. Unlock the
power of protein to help you fight the signs of aging. Feel younger -
look younger with a Less N Lean Protein Shake and WDNA.
