Serrapeptase is an enzyme derived from silk worms. It is marketed in Asia under the trade name Danzen and in Europe as Anaflazyme. It has many clinical uses including:

* as an anti-inflammatory agent (particularly for post traumatic swelling)
* for Fibrocystic breast disease
* for Bronchitis (Serrapeptase loosens and expels mucous)

Serrapeptase digests dead tissue, blood clots, cysts, and arterial plaque. The late German physician Dr Hans Nieper used serrapeptase to treat arterial blockage in his coronary patients.  A doctor who requested anonymity calls serrapeptase "miraculous".  Dr X claims serrapeptase protects against stroke and is more effective and quicker than EDTA chelation treatments in removing arterial plaque.  He also reports that serrapeptase dissolves blood clots and causes varicose veins to shrink or diminish.  Dr X told of a man scheduled for bypass surgery who cancelled his surgery and recovered after treatment with serrapeptase.

Alpha Lipoic Acid is unique in that it is both a water-soluble and oil-soluble antioxidant. It has the unique effect of recycling other antioxidants such as vitamin C and vitamin E.  Lipoic acid can be used to prevent and treat both type I and type II diabetes by normalizing blood sugar levels and reducing insulin resistance.  Lipoic Acid reduces the incidence of cataracts in diabetics and prevents diabetic neuropathy.

5-HydroxyTryptophan (5-HTP) is a metabolite of the amino acid L-Tryptophan. It is a natural product extracted from Griffonia seeds. 5-HTP produces the neurotransmitter serotonin in the brain making it helpful in cases of depression, anxiety, sleep problems, and obsessive compulsive behavior including compulsive gambling..

Prozac and other selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) drugs raise serotonin levels by recycling it.  However, 5-HTP raises brain serotonin levels more effectively than Prozac without any accompanying side effects. For those not affected by depression, 5-HTP acts as a mild mood elevator.

Drugs like dexfenfluramine (Redux) act as an appetite suppressant by raising brain serotonin levels. Clinical trials have shown that 5-HTP causes people to voluntarily decrease their caloric intake of carbohydrates and fats but not decrease protein intake.

Substances that raise serotonin:

1. Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft (SSRI's)
2. Dexfenfluramine (Redux)
3. Alcohol
4. Tobacco
5. Caffeine

Taking natural 5-HTP in capsule extracted from Griffonia seeds is a much safer and healthier alternative to any on the above list.       to order

Galantamine is an extract of the snowdrop plant (Galanthus nivalis) that is approved as an Alzheimer's drug in Europe. It works by two mechanisms:

1) Galantamine inhibits acetylcholinesterase, the enzyme that breaks down acetylcholine (the brain neurotransmitter responsible for learning and memory).

2). Galantamine stimulates brain nicotinic receptors and reduces the build-up of amyloid plaque in the brain.  An interesting side effect is that people using galantamine are reporting a loss of body weight, most likely caused by the nicotinic receptor stimulation.       to order

Picamilon (also spelled Pikamilon) is a Russian nootropic that crosses the blood-brain barrier and increases circulation to the brain better than either Hydergine® or Vinpocetine.      to order

is a newly developed oral secretagogue that signals the pituitary gland to release more growth hormone. Growth hormone is known for burning body fat. This fact has not escaped bodybuilders who have used growth hormone for many years to improve definition.  Both men and women have reported body fat losses while using Symbiotropin

Vinpocetine is an extract of the periwinkle plant (vinca major).
Vinpocetine improves mental function by:

1) increasing circulation to the brain
2) increasing ATP production in the brain
3) improving the brain's utilization of glucose and oxygen
4) slowing lipofuscin pigment deposit in the brain
5) increasing the turnover of the neurotransmitters norepinephrine and serotonin.

Vinpocetine improves many ear problems including tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and vertigo (dizziness).        to order
