DISCOVER THE SCIENCE BEHIND THIS AMAZING SUPPLEMENT! A complex of some 40 antioxidants extracted from the bark of French maritime pine trees, Pycnogenol has remarkable healing properties. In fact, over the past 50 years, more than 300 studies have demonstrated Pycnogenol's health benefits, which scientists suspect are related not only to its combination of antioxidants but also to their inherent synergism. From enhancing circulation, physical strength, cognitive function and treating menstrual cramps and menopausal symptoms to fighting chronic diseases, including diabetes and heart disease, Pycnogenol has been shown time and again to efficaciously address issues that are relevant to everyone--adults as well as children. In this comprehensive resource, which includes extensive references listed at the end of each chapter, authors of Prof. Rohdewald and Dr. Passwater take an in-depth look at the science behind Pycnogenol, compiling and exploring the research (often with easy-to-understand, data-rich, full-color illustrations) to shed light on the supplement's role in improving cellular health, energy, quality-of-life issues, and symptoms related to more than 20 different conditions. The authors also document persuasive case studies, detailing how people have used the patented extract as part of successful treatment protocols, giving readers insights into how to use this supplement to enhance their own health and well-being.

The Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, officially recognizing that various risk factors for disease are present in our environment, has proposed the concept of lifestyle-related diseases. These include those diseases that are tied to such lifestyle choices as excessive alcohol consumption, cigarette smoking, exposure to stress, and poor diet. Ongoing attention to this issue led to an International Symposium on Free Radicals and Health: Molecular Interventions and Protection of Lifestyle-Related Diseases bringing together the top experts in that area. With the belief that the recognition of the occurrence of risk factors and their identification are important to overcoming lifestyle-related diseases, three of those experts invited prominent participants at the symposium to contribute to a book. Molecular Interventions in Lifestyle-Related Diseases is the result of that effort. This book is divided into three main sections: Free Radicals, Lifestyle-Related Diseases, and Their Protection Free Radicals, Brain Diseases, and Their Protection Nutraceuticals, Functional Foods, Micronutrients, and Pharmacological Interventions When bad lifestyle choices cause oxidants and free radicals to have a negative influence on cell signaling and gene expression, lifestyle-related diseases are set into motion, which in turn lead to further oxidative stress. Molecular Interventions in Lifestyle-Related Diseases addresses the molecular basis of free radicals and lifestyle-related diseases and preventive/therapeutic approaches including the use of nutraceuticals, functional foods, and pharmacological interventions. Each section contains several chapters addressing critical molecular mechanisms, therapeutic interventions, and other issues of relevance to human health that will be of interest to students and researchers in the health professions including nutritional and environmental scientists, molecular and cell biologists and others in the biomedical community

In this revolutionary book, bestselling author and anti-aging expert Dr. Nicholas Perricone reveals a completely new and hidden threat to our looks and our health–and gives us a program to defeat it. Dr. Nicholas Perricone has gotten to the bottom of accelerated aging with the discovery of AGEs (Advanced Glycation End Products). AGEs are at least as detrimental to our health as transfats but have been largely unknown outside the medical community. AGEs give us wrinkles, but they have also been implicated in serious age-related conditions that cut across all medical specialties, from Alzheimer’s and cataracts to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer. Yet we have not had strategic interventions for stopping and reversing the effects of AGEs until now. Dr. Perricone shows us how to win the fight against AGEs with a three-part plan of attack that includes a nutritional program, targeted supplements, and new topicals. His groundbreaking program helps to • erase wrinkles and firm sagging skin • reverse age-related memory loss • heal cardiovascular disease • stop precursors of cancer • prevent symptoms of diabetes Ageless Face, Ageless Mind brings us not only a new and exciting field of research and its remarkable discoveries, but also a way to fight one of the biggest hidden threats to our immediate and long-term health.

Impulsivity, hyperactivity, inattention and distractability—words that ring a bell? For the estimated six million Americans suffering from Attention Deficit Disorder, such words interfere with daily life! For another 40 million people, such words alone make them think they have ADD. A disorder that doesn't go away on its own, ADD turns untreated children into frustrated adults. And, adults who have children with ADD, probably have it as well. From the co-authors of Migraines: What Works! and Back Pain: What Works!, comes Adult ADD—The Complete Handbook. Although ADD books have appeared on bestseller lists before, this is the first ADD book ever written by neurologists. In simple and friendly terms, co-authors David Sudderth and Joseph Kandel offer help to those leading frustrating lives. They provide coping mechanisms, both psychological and an up-to-date guide to the latest technology that people with ADD will benefit from. In addition to providing a list of primary ADD symptoms and theoretic causes, the handbook also: • Suggests where they should start and which doctor they should choose • Explains which medicines (including Ritalin) are effective for ADD treatment • Offers complimentary treatments, such as changing sleep habits and diet, counseling, and biofeedback • Provides self-help strategies and coping mechanisms for daily problems
