Depression Symptoms from Low Hormones 0 (0)

Depression Symptoms from Low Hormones

Depression Symptoms impacts all of us at one time or another. It isn’t logical to expect that everything will go well all the time. Plenty of men may seem to be very lucky and prosperous. They may even appear to have the world at their fingertips. Sadly, that surface appearance may mean absolutely nothing to somebody suffering from Low symptoms of low motivation and/or depression. Depression can hit you like a ton of bricks. The stigma associated with being a man with symptoms of depression can be demoralizing and add insult to injury. Most men have no desire to admit their feelings of depression let alone confront or deal with the associated issues.

It’s safe to assume that before you try and tackle a problem you attempt to understand what at its core. Preparing yourself for your battle is the safest way to assure success in whatever it is you are trying to overcome.

It’s important for men to understand that feelings of Depression Symptoms do not diminish their masculinity in any way, shape or form. Everything may be going right in their life and they may have no reason to be upset or sad. Unfortunately, depression in men does not need to be correlated to any personal or external circumstance or situation.

With age, testosterone production decreases causing our endocrine system to have to work harder in other areas. In turn, additional stresses in the physiological production of regulated low Hormones can cause feelings of Depression Symptoms. When testosterone levels in men are low, many other functions in the body are hindered by the lower secreted amounts of the Low Hormone. Low testosterone causes feelings of fatigue, as well as reducing motivation and vigor. The end result is a once strong and inspired man is now tired and in need of rest and recharge. This demoralizing realization can be emotionally devastating to a man. This means, not only are there physical attributes associated with low testosterone and feelings of depression, but also functional and emotional declines associated with hypogonadism. This combination helps to further and fuel the feelings of an emotional downward spiral.

Life is too short and beautiful to waste. Make sure to contact us to help you take another approach to reviving your emotional engine. Don’t resign yourself to taking libido deteriorating antidepressant medication that has been scientifically proven to cause an array of unfortunate side effects over long term use. Fix the problem at the core, don’t mask it. Call us today in order for one of our Wellness Advisors to help you understand further how AAI Rejuvenation Clinic is going to help you regain control of your well-being.

The relationship between Growth Hormone (GH) and well-being appears to run very deep. Children who are severely emotionally deprived fail to grow. This phenomenon, known as Psychological Growth Failure, results in lower levels of Growth Hormone.

Researchers at St. Thomas Hospital in London led by Peter Sönksen conducted a series of experiments in the late 1990s which conclusively found that HGH injections change the concentration of certain neurotransmitters, or brain chemical messengers. GH raises the level of B-endorphin, while it lowers dopamine. B-endorphin, sometimes referred to as, the brain’s morphine, is responsible for the high feeling often resulting from intense exercise. Dopamine can produce feelings of agitation. The same effect, an increase of B-endorphin and decrease in dopamine, is seen in patients taking antidepressants. Therefore, it appears Growth Hormone replacement therapy has an antidepressant effect.

Low Hormone Lead to Decreased Sex Drive and Desire 0 (0)

Low Hormones: Does It Lead to Decreased Sex Drive and Desire?

Low testosterone may be the cause of decreased Sex Drive and Desire. Though it is the dominant hormone in men, Also there is a danger of low testosterone also plays a significant role in women.

As many as one in five of all men and 30% of women ages 18 – 59 suffer from decreased sex drive. Contrary to popular belief, low sex drive is not related to the frequency of sexual activity or the satisfaction achieved. Instead, it is determined by the body’s signal indicating sexual desire. This signal declines with age due to the body’s decreased production of testosterone.

The natural loss of testosterone, or low testosterone, may be linked to the following conditions, each of which contributes to loss of libido:

  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Obesity
  • Endothelial dysfunction
  • Diabetes

Testosterone therapy can assist in reclaiming your youth, vitality, and libido. Here at AAI Rejuvenation Clinic, we’re ready to help with low testosterone issues. Our services are discrete and confidential. Contact us today or fill out our medical history form. Our trained wellness team is eager to get you started on the path to a more satisfied, more confident you.

Testosterone (Low-T) and Sex Drive and Desire

It’s not something we like to talk about, however, loss of libido or Sex Drive and Desire is a more common condition than you would think. 1 in 5 men doesn’t want to have sex! That doesn’t go with the image society paints of men, the sex-drive machine with one thing and one thing only on its mind. How is this something that we haven’t heard of? Well, apparently many of us have. Those of us getting denied with a, not tonight dear. The problem not only affects men but women too. About 30% of women from ages 18 to 59 are suffering from decreased Sex Drive and Desire.

Low libido stresses a relationship more than any other sexual dysfunction. It’s one thing if your partner wants to have sex with you and is physically incapable. It’s a whole other ball game when they have the low sex drive or decreased sexual desire and seem completely uninterested in the subject as a whole. A sudden loss of intimacy due to decreased sexual desire with no physical difficulties to blame it on can create a huge elephant in the room. Your partner can feel that your loss of sex drive is a result of something they did and even you may come to question the source of this decrease in libido.

You may ask yourself what exactly is low sex drive? Well contrary to popular belief, it is not the frequency with which you are having sex or the satisfaction achieved through sex. It has more to do with your body signaling that it wants to be sexual then it has to do with you acting on that signal. This signal, sexual desire or libido, naturally declines with age. Much of this is due to the decrease in the body’s natural production of Testosterone.

Testosterone is the dominant hormone found in males, however, it also plays a dominant role in women. Testosterone Therapy is they key factor when it comes to your Sex Drive and Desire and should always be the first avenue to consider if there is a suspicion that your libido is beginning to decrease. If you notice your vigor is not what it once was, you are doing yourself a sad disservice by not, at least, just checking out your testosterone levels. Of course, other variables may come into play such as stress, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, influences from your peers, etc. Low testosterone may not be the main cause of your loss of Sex Drive and Desire but it is likely a contributing factor.

The natural loss of testosterone is also linked to many conditions that lead to loss of libido. Metabolic syndrome, obesity, endothelial dysfunction, and diabetes, are just a few of these. A medical examination would be the best way to determine what exactly may be going on. You don’t have to learn to live with your low libido or decreasing Sex Drive and Desire.

Here at AAI Rejuvenation Clinic, there are a number of therapies and protocols that can help bring back the passion in your life. With the help of one of our physicians, a proper diagnosis, an individualized and physician supervised testosterone protocol, a proper diet, and healthy lifestyle change, natural decline or loss of Sex Drive and Desire is not something we have to learn to live with. We can do something about it now. Call us now or fill out the Medical History Form. We will call you at no cost or obligation to give you a proper rundown of our services, what we can do to help better your situation and the associated costs you can expect to be involved.

Can Hormone Levels Cause Decreased Motivation 0 (0)

Can hormone levels cause Decreased Motivation?

Decreased Motivation is incredible. Without motivation, the most routine task can become daunting.

It is common for people to assume if they get a good night sleep they will feel rejuvenated in the morning. Even with a full night of sleep, when you wake in the morning, your head is immediately flooded with thoughts of what you need to get accomplished throughout the day. At this point, you begin to organize your day. By planning your activities you feel that you have created a map of the tasks you need to accomplish. It’s the start of what should be a productive day.

Decreased Motivation

However, without motivation, all the preparation in the world will not help you execute your plan to complete your activities. Can low T and or GH be the culprit? Human Growth Hormone and testosterone play a vital role in the creation of the energy we produce to get motivated and moving daily.

Science has demonstrated that hormone secretions, especially testosterone therapy, and HGH therapy, diminish with age. Low Testosterone is a proven fact. Low Testosterone and lesser Human Growth Hormone secretion bring about many unwanted physical manifestations. When hormone levels diminish, so do the energy boosting components that are associated with them. Additionally, as we age, because of low Testosterone and your body producing less Human Growth Hormone, your ability to experience restful sleep diminishes. Regardless of how many hours you actually lay in bed. Having low Testosterone levels and less GH produces less restful sleep, which leads to reduced daily energy. This combination of events decreases motivation, which results in an inability to complete daily tasks. This is just one of many unfortunate side effects of having low Testosterone, low Human Growth Hormone production and, really, just not having a handle on your endocrine production.

Recent studies indicate that by correcting low T and decreasing Growth Hormone issues and elevating them to the same levels we experienced in our youth can help maintain positive mood levels despite negative distractions from external sources.

Controlling your Human Growth Hormone levels and dealing correctly with low Testosterone problems will help all your internal and external systems function at maximum capacity on a daily basis. We live in a time where there is potential to attack pituitary and low Testosterone issues more than one way. At AAI, we can focus on your low Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone levels and develop a program or therapy regimen to keep them optimized. The results will help your system operate at peak performance, which will produce increased motivation. Your ability to focus, maintain energy and complete your daily plan will re-emerge. You no longer have to live with dragging symptoms of low Testosterone and low HGH.

Call us at your earliest convenience in order to schedule blood work at a lab-testing center near your home. These tests will help us determine what your hormone levels are and how they are impacting your daily routine. These tests will also help us tailor a therapy specifically for your needs. It will help us determine the best course of action to quickly correct low Testosterone, HGH or any other hormonal deficiency issues a patient has been dealing with. Fill out the medical history form located on the tab at the top of this page. One of our Wellness Advisors will contact you within 24 hours to review all the details and requirements you will need to qualify for a physician supervised, hormone replacement program.

Cellulite Improved Through Balancing Hormone 0 (0)

How is cellulite improved through balancing hormone levels?

For years, How is cellulite improved through balancing hormone levels. the link between Human Growth Hormone and Testosterone to cellulite improved was basically nonexistent. As Testosterone and HGH therapy were studied in greater depths, we saw more and more that both Testosterone and HGH therapy played a major role in almost every single aspect of our anatomy. In recent years, there have been countless studies organized in attempts to fully understand the effects of Testosterone and Human Growth Hormone in the body. We are beginning to see, conclusively, that maintaining healthy levels of both Testosterone Injections and Human Growth Hormone injection can actually correct, regress or help to mend old tissue damage.

Sadly, some women and men will never wear shorts or a bathing suit because of the appearance of dimpled skin on their legs are known as cellulite. People have tried everything; wraps, creams, even undergoing electrical stimulation in an effort to regain their formerly smooth and evenly plump skin.

group-testimonials

Is Testosterone or HGH Therapy is better to fight Cellulite?

cellulite improved is almost exclusively a female concern, as the anatomy of a woman’s skin is very different from a man’s. Cellulite is primarily about Human Growth Hormone, though keeping in mind that healthy Testosterone levels go hand in hand with a healthy, active lifestyle are very important. Also, testosterone does, in fact, have a role in skin and protein production. Testosterone sensitive tissue is located throughout our entire bodies. It’s very important to understand that Testosterone is not limited to our sexual desires or libido level, and though women need a lot less Testosterone than men, they still need adequate, healthy levels of Testosterone in order to feel and be great. It’s just an anatomical fact.

That being said, in its initial stages, as estrogen is released into a woman’s body, some fluid builds up in fatty tissues around the thighs, buttocks, arms and sometimes the midsection, and sometimes even areas of the back can be affected as well. Since women have more fatty tissue than men – particularly throughout the thighs and hips, this manifestation is usually and unfortunately more noticeable on a woman’s body.

HGH injections and Testosterone injections, which are responsible for cellulite improved and tissue regeneration, and maintaining healthy body tissue, are the same hormones that are also responsible for a decrease in the production of collagen. Collagen is the protein which helps keeps skin elastic and strong. The issue is when collagen levels lower and elasticity decreases, there is a greater likelihood that cellulite will become visible, as the skin does not have the taught, tighter quality to help hold back the apparition of fat deposits below the skin.

cellulite improved is located in the subsurface or subcutaneous layer of the skin. It is made up of connective tissue and fat cells known as the Cellulite. This actually forms when the structural support of the skin starts to collapse and the fat cells push through it. That’s what causes the dimpled look that so many women and men, would love to erase.

However, remember to keep in mind that there isn’t a quick fix for erasing cellulite. We need to take into account that this is an accumulation of cells. Since it occurs at a cellular level, it’s a slow process and you must be patient in waiting for the skin to revert back to its smoother, tighter beginnings.

Here is where we can revert back to the conversation of maintaining healthy Testosterone levels and why, even if you are a woman, Testosterone therapy may be the very answer to many ailments being experienced; many issues that most women would not typically first consider Testosterone to be the culprit.

Aside from helping to reverse the appearance of cellulite improved, Human Growth Hormone and Testosterone will actually help all tissue in the body to repair, tighten and regenerate. This will literally magnify your potential for maximum health and body optimization. If your body is functioning at its best, you are looking your best, feeling your best and capable of your best! At AAI Rejuvenation Clinic we are eager to speak to you about the developing a Wellness Regimen, including HGH therapy that will help address your ailments or any health-related concerns that you may have. The appearance of damage to the skin is always an indicator that something is not right internally. We will organize a comprehensive blood test to help us determine what is really happening internally. Fill out our Medical History Form or call us today: (866) 224-5698

Anti-Aging Answer for Women’s Health 0 (0)

AAI is the Anti-Aging Answer for Women’s Health

Women’s Health hormonal web is complicated; finding the right anti-aging serum can also be challenging. The hormones governing women’s physical and mental function throughout their lives work together to maintain a balance. The key hormonal players in women, Estrogen, Progesterone, Testosterone/DHEA, Human Growth Hormone, Thyroid, & Cortisol, begin to play out of tune as their levels decrease with age. So when hormones decline or become imbalanced, as in Peri-Menopause & Menopause, we start to notice changes in our bones, muscle strength, the elasticity of our skin, and in our energy, mood, memory, & libido. The majority of women think that Peri-Menopause and Menopause cause inconvenient symptoms: mood swings, fatigue, hot flashes, & low libido among others. What they don’t know is that these hormonal imbalances raise our risk for serious diseases such as heart disease, Alzheimer’s, osteoporosis, obesity, depression, stroke, and cancers; especially breast cancer. Therefore, it is crucial that we prevent and treat the cause of these symptoms as soon as they start to appear in our late 30’s. Not only our well­ being and quality of life depends on it, but our health and risk of disease is optimized by becoming hormone balance.

The Women’s Health Initiative (WHI 2002) was a major multi-national study that included thousands of Women’s Health on synthetic estrogens (Premarin, Birth Control Pills, Nuvaring) and/or on synthetic progesterones (Provera, Progestins, Birth Control Pellets/Injections). This study had to be stopped abruptly: unprecedented for any medical study around the world. The reason was that Women’s Health in the study were getting a much higher incidence of heart disease, stroke, blood clots, and breast cancer than Women’s Health in the general population. At this point, 08/GYN’s around the country took Women’s Health off their synthetic hormonal therapy (synthetic estrogens and Peri-Menopause) to prevent these problems, even though they knew women would have to live with bothersome symptoms and their risk for serious illness would be greatly increased. Bio-Identical or Non-Synthetic hormonal therapy progesterones is the only option for women to treat Progesterone symptoms, decrease significantly the risk of age-related diseases, and increase well-being & quality of life. Most doctors are not familiar with the Bio-Identical hormonal therapy, but experts in Anti-aging Medicine specialize in this field.

Bio-Identical hormones are the answer!

Women’s reproductive life is composed of 3 stages:

  1. Pre Menopause – the PMS Years
  2. Peri-Menopause – the Rollercoaster Years
  3. Menopause/Post-Menopause -the End of Periods

Pre Menopause-The PMs Years

During their 20’s and 30’s, Women’s Health experience fairly regular cycles with balanced estrogen and progesterone production. But increasingly, younger females who are prone to excess stress, crash diets, and contraceptive use are not ovulating regularly. Anovulatory cycles can lead to symptoms of

hormonal imbalance, severe PMS, and more serious health issues, such as polycystic ovaries, endometriosis, and infertility.

Peri-Menopause – The Rollercoaster Years

Most women don’t know that there is a period of time called Peri-Menopause {of 10-15 years) when the body gets ready to start Menopause, therefore, they do not associate mood and emotional symptoms with their hormones or menopause. But they should! Beginning in the late 30’s until menopause (average age of 51), Women’s Health begins to experience a whole new world of symptoms, as estrogen and progesterone levels fluctuate dozens of times a day from wavering ovarian function. These symptoms range from classical menopause symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings to not so typical ones like high anxiety, foggy thinking, bone loss, weight gain, depression, fatigue, and low libido. These fluctuations in hormone levels take women on a rollercoaster ride! At this point, the search for symptom relief begins with Bio-Identical hormones.

Menopause/Post Menopause- The Ends of Periods

The official start of Menopause is 12 months in a row without a period, occurring around age 51. But it is not uncommon to see symptoms much sooner. Acute/prolonged stress, for example, can negatively impact ovarian function and can precipitate premature Menopause in vulnerable women as early as their mid to late 30’s. Menopause can also be surgically induced through hysterectomy, radiation, or chemotherapy. We think that hormones control only our sexual and reproductive systems, but hormones actually regulate the entire body. With fewer hormones to go around, their important role in protecting the health of the brain, bones, muscles, skin, breasts, and heart is diminished.

Supplementation with Bio-Identical hormones is a matter of life or death at this stage.

Common hormone imbalances in Peri-Menopause & Menopause:

The right balance of anti-aging serum and hormones is vital to a woman’s health & well being. During Peri-Menopause & Menopause, hormone levels drop and hormone deficiencies take place. Logically, one would think that hormonal deficiencies should be resolved with hormonal supplementation. Unfortunately, there are so many hormones at work in a woman’s body that deficiencies in one hormone may trigger excesses of either hormone and this is how imbalances take place. (Remember, low levels of hormone are as harmful to your health as high levels). The following are the most common hormone imbalances in Women’s Health and their symptoms:

  1. Estrogen Dominance–mood swings, migraines, fat gain, low thyroid, breast cancer risk
  2. Low Estrogen & Progesterone-hot flashes, night sweats, palpitations, foggy thinking
  3. High Testosterone & DHEA-acne, hair loss, irritability, belly fat, polycystic ovaries
  4. Low Testosterone & DHEA-decreases bone/muscle mass, energy, libido (sexual desire)
  5. High or Low Cortisol  (Stressed Adrenals): insomnia, anxiety, chronic fatigue, allergies, food cravings, low immunity

Do you have symptoms of hormonal imbalance?

Mood Swings
Cold Body Temperature
Scalp Hair Loss
Memory Lapses
Incontinence
Sleep Disturbances
Stress
Can’t Lose Weight
Thinning Skin
Fatigue
Bone Loss
Uterine Fibroids
Hot Flashes
Sugar or Salty Cravings
Aches & Pains
Decreased Libido
Tender Breasts
Weight Gain (waist &/or hips)
Heart Palpitations
Fibrocystic Breasts
Fibromyalgia
Headaches
irritable
Polycystic Ovaries
Night Sweats
Oily Skin
Increased Body /Facial Hair
Vaginal Dryness
Heavy Menses/Bleeding Changes
Foggy Thinking
Anxious
Water Retention
Nervous
Depression
Foggy Thinking
Tearful

Troublesome or persistent symptoms during Peri-Menopause & Menopause are a sign of related imbalances that may be complicating the situation and raising disease risks of osteoporosis, heart disease, breast cancer, obesity, and Alzheimer’s.   Symptoms from one Women’s Health to another are as highly individual as a thumbprint! If you answered yes to 3 or more symptoms in this questionnaire, you may be hormonally imbalanced:

How can I balance my hormones naturally?

Hormone balance and the knowledge that hormones work together with a healthy mind and body are the keys to optimal health and Peri-Menopause & Menopausal relief.

  1. First, determine your symptoms
  2. Then, test ALL of your hormones to detect specific imbalances
  3. Find a board certified doctor in Anti-Aging Medicine (specializing in Bio-Identical hormonal therapy)
  4. NEVER use Estrogen alone (even after Hysterectomy)!
  5. ALWAYS use Bio-Identical hormones (the exact chemical structure as the hormones produced by the body and derived from a natural source)
  6. STOP all synthetic hormones-Premarin, Provera, Progestins, and birth control pills, pellets, injections, & intrauterine devices (They ALL contain synthetic hormones)
  7. Supplement with Nutriceuticals (pharmaceutical-grade nutritional supplements that are prescription strength, free of harmful contaminants, and actually absorbed by the body)-only way to have the available building blocks to regenerate the body’s tissues and to work properly
  8. Detoxify is key for Bio-Identical hormone treatment to work at its best
  9. Limit “Xenoestrogens” (substances that mimic estrogen in the body & precipitate hormonal imbalances)–for example, pesticides, nail polish, fumes,
  10. Use “hormone-free” foods and products
  11. Maintain ideal weight (fat cells send signals in the body that cause hormonal It is medically proven that overweight/obesity is a major risk factor for the major killers in the US: heart disease, stroke, and cancer. Also, breast cancer patients have a significant increase in fat mass compared to women without cancer)
  12. Boost hormones naturally with exercise not a substitute for hormonal supplementation with Bio-Identical hormones; exercise makes hormonal therapy more work at its best while becoming more stable
  13. Minimize stress and use stress-handling techniques like yoga, meditation, prayer,
  14. Stop smoking ASAP
  15. Eat more fiber
  16. Get deep, restful, uninterrupted 7-8 hours of sleep this is the only way that body tissues regenerate after being used during the day

Vitamin B12 Health Benefits and Safe Administration 0 (0)

Vitamin B12 Health Benefits

Vitamin B12 Health Benefits, There has been a lot of controversy over whether or not there is truly a benefit from taking B12 supplements. Some doctors suggest that as long as a person is not vegan (though probiotics in the gut can produce some B12), they are probably getting sufficient B12 from the basic foods they are ingesting.

Vitamin B12 Health Benefits

Vitamin B12 Health Benefits, There has been a lot of controversy over whether or not there is truly a benefit from taking B12 supplements. Some doctors suggest that as long as a person is not vegan (though probiotics in the gut can produce some B12), they are probably getting sufficient B12 from the basic foods they are ingesting.

Let us reference some studies:

  • There is documented research from the Framingham Study suggesting that 40% of all people are deficient in B12
  • The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition did research in 2009 and they published a study suggesting close to 6% of U.S. and U.K. residents over the age of 60 are B12 deficient. Another 20% were referenced as “marginal status”.

Vitamin B12 Health Benefits has the most multifaceted and prevalent chemical structure of all vitamins. One area where it differentiates from other vitamins is in the fact that it’s the only vitamin that contains a metal commonly referred to as Cobalamin, which is also a universal term for all the various compounds that may have some kind of B12 properties in it.

  • B12 has the ability to improve energy by aiding in thyroid function and cellular methylation.

That being said, B12 is not only useful in supporting healthy energy levels. It is unequivocally essential to life and a healthy existence. People deficient in B12 will suffer from serious health issues if the problem is not addressed.

B12 plays a role in the following human biological processes:

  • Nerve and brain regeneration
  • Adrenal gland support
  • Male and female reproductive health
  • Nutrient absorption
  • Red blood cell formation
  • Cellular energy
  • Memory recall
  • DNA synthesis

Some of the risks associated with extended periods of depleted B12 levels are:

  • Pernicious anemia
  • Migraine headaches
  • Macular degeneration
  • Tinnitus
  • Fatigue (adrenal fatigue and CFS)
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Memory loss
  • Neuropathy
  • Anemia
  • Asthma
  • Shingles
  • Kidney disease
  • Depression

Some possible causes for B12 deficiency are:

  • You have leaky gut or digestive disease
  • You are over 50
  • You have had Helicobacter pylori bacterial infection or stomach ulcer
  • You are a vegan or vegetarian
  • You have acid reflux
  • You’ve had weight loss surgery
  • You are taking one of the following types of medications:  antibiotics, anti-gout, blood pressure, birth control pills, cholesterol-lowering drugs, diabetes medications and antipsychotic drugs.
  • The two most common ways you may become vitamin B12 deficient are through a lack of Vitamin B12 Health Benefits in your diet or through an inability to absorb the B12 from ingested foods. 

According to the George Mateljan Foundation, the most Vitamin B12 Health Benefits rich foods are:

  1. Beef and Chicken Liver (550% RDA)
  2. Sardines (337.9%)
  3. Salmon (236.2%)
  4. Tuna (110.8%)
  5. Cod (109.1%)
  6. Lamb (104.5%)
  7. Scallops (101.6%)
  8. Beef (grass-fed) (60%)
  9. Yogurt (37.9%)
  10. Venison (36%)
  11. Raw milk (22.9%)
  12. Turkey (10%)

Why is B12 in my Testosterone Therapy?

Aside from all the additional life-sustaining implications supported by B12, it also plays a vital role in maintaining some possible side effects away that can arise from participating in unsupervised Testosterone therapy. You might hear about cases of cardiac troubles stemming from testosterone therapy. What’s not mentioned is the reasoning behind it. Testosterone therapy causes an increase in red blood cells. This causes the viscosity of the blood to elevate. If it isn’t addressed, it causes intense stress to the heart, up to eventual failure. The artery walls and heart valves may also harden from unsubstantiated testosterone treatment. Incorporating the B12 helps to ensure artery and valve walls remain supple and malleable. Unfortunately, a lot of participants of therapy that are not being supervised by a hormone specialist overlook this medication or edit it from their protocol entirely, not understanding the dangers they are ultimately setting themselves up for.

Our programs always have B12 incorporated as the necessary portion of the protocol. Side effects have to be as equally regarded as the results we are hoping for and expecting.

AAI Clinics has two different options for supplementing with injectable B12:

  • Methylcobalamin
  • Cyanocobalamin

The most common form of B12 is Cyanocobalamin. However, the popularity of this product is dwindling as people become better educated on the differences between the two forms of B12. In fact, there is actually a very small difference. The only alteration comes from a minute chemical dissimilarity, which boils down to one very small area of the molecule.

  • Methylcobalamin contains a “methyl” group (just carbon and hydrogen).
  • Cyanocobalamin has a cyanide group, which everyone knows cyanide is a substance you obviously want to stay away from as much as humanly possible.

However, Cyanocobalamin should definitely not be considered “bad”. Its chemical structure allows for its safe administration and beneficial properties, however, studies have conclusively determined that the Methylcobalamin quite simply contains healthier compounds and is recorded to be more bioavailable and more easily accepted by the body.

It is considered to be a leading cause of virtually every disease known to man. Found in most cells, Glutathione Health Benefits is an important part of the body’s internal, natural antioxidant defense system. The ratio between oxidization and reduced glutathione in the body is indicative of overall toxicity as well as inflammatory response.
  • Heavy Metal ChelatorL-Glutathione is a potent chelator, involved in the cellular response, transport, and excretion of toxic heavy metals. It is also a biomarker for toxic metal overload. With ample glutathione levels, we are capable of excreting these heavy metals from the body, relieving the stress and damage they cause to our cells.
  • Antioxidant: The antioxidant benefits of l-glutathione Health Benefits are extraordinary. This is why it has earned the title of the body’s “Master Antioxidant”. Found in every cell, L-Glutathione scours our body for toxins, free radicals, and heavy metals that pose a threat to our health and well-being. Acting as a magnet, it gathers up all of these harmful substances and expels them from the body.
  • Liver Health: Glutathione is also closely linked to liver health and function when GSH levels are high, the workload put on the liver is reduced and it has a chance to repair itself. This helps reduce liver inflammation, which is the cause of liver cirrhosis and impaired liver function. Supporting liver health is one of the most beneficial things anyone could do for ensuring their best life. In the process, it helps with reducing body toxicity and supporting the immune health.
  • Cognitive Health: Supporting glutathione levels can help detoxify the brain and ensure heavy metal deposits never get a chance to damage the brain severely. This can help ward off the root cause of many cognitive disorders and even improve cognitive function and memory throughout the aging process.
  • Skin Health and Appearance: By supporting L-Glutathione levels, you are improving the quality of your skin, translating into a healthy glow and a reduction in wrinkles and dry spots. It is also commonly used topically as a skin whitener, because of its ability to reduce melanin production. Melanin is the pigment that gives skin its color. By reducing melanin production you can get the appearance of whiter and sometimes clearer skin.

MIC Complex and Lipo information 0 (0)

MIC Complex and Lipo factors

MIC Complex and Lipo Factors (Lipo)These lipotropic factors work with your body to metabolize fat.  They promote the flow of fat to and from the liver.  M.I.C. MIC Complex and Lipo Factors also nourishes the liver, resulting in an organ better equipped with the necessary nutrients to function properly and eliminate fats.  There are many other processes in the body that use these lipotropic factors for uses such as energy production, cardiovascular health, and nerve health. The M.I.C. vitamin Complex is a specialty-compounded medication that combines supplements (Vitamins A, D, B-12, minerals, probiotics, diuretics, and L-Carnitine) to aid in increasing energy levels, cellular health, and boost both the metabolism & immune system. Fantastic for instances where there is water retention that needs to be focused on and flushed out. 

Compounding Description

Methionine: An essential amino that acts as a lipotropic agent, which assists in the breakdown of fats within the liver. It also helps to lower cholesterol, which prevents excess fat buildup in the liver and throughout the body’s circulatory system. Methionine helps in preventing and relieving fatigue. It’s been known to be useful in some cases of allergies by virtue of its ability to reduce histamine release.

Injecting methionine into your muscles will help you to rapidly achieve high concentrations in your blood levels, which many researchers and physicians say may result in more effective mobilization and further eradication of anomalous fatty deposits in the blood.

Other re-counted benefits of methionine include improvement of:

  • Liver disease
  • Skin tone and elasticity
  • Nails
  • Hair
  • Cardiovascular and muscular functions

There have been conclusive studies where methionine was successfully used in treating the following maladies as well:

  • Premature ejaculation
  • Chronic depression
  • Pancreatitis
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • AIDS myelopathy

More importantly, recent clinical research has plainly established methionine’s ability to “…strongly improve the alcohol-induced histological changes in the liver.

It was also found that triglyceride content of the liver had decreased in a dose-dependent manner with increasing methionine ingestion.

Inositol – Inositol is a B-vitamin that stimulates the health of cell structures and nerve synapses. It helps with metabolizing fats. It contributes to the reduction of bad cholesterol (LDL) and participates in the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to be in charge of our moods and appetite.

Inositol is also involved in the breakdown of fats, the reduction of serum cholesterol, serotonin activity modulation, gene expression, and insulin signal transduction. It’s actually not a vitamin because your body is unable to synthesize it. Aside from that fact, it has demonstrated to be beneficial in treating:

  • Depression
  • Panic disorder
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome
  • Fatty liver

Moreover, the fact that it is important for optimal brain function is reason enough to give this B-vitamin some heavy consideration.

Inositol deficiency may manifest as symptoms of:

  • Constipation
  • High cholesterol
  • Vision problems
  • Hair loss

Even though inositol is naturally found in some foods like nuts and beans, it is more effective in breaking down fat when administered as an injection.

Choline – Choline is an essential nutrient that helps to support the liver in its processing and excretion of chemical waste products. More importantly, it is vital for the transference and metabolism of fats and cholesterol, which is imperative for the healthy maintenance of the endocrine, cardiovascular, and hepatic systems.

Aside from these three main ingredients, our M.I.C, MIC Complex and Lipo Factors complex comes compounded with B-12 and additional B-Complexes, as well as L-Carnitine, which is also an amino acid that is essential in the process of transporting and breaking down fats for the generation of metabolic energy.
