Garlic can improve health 5 (1)

Garlic Can Improve Health More Than You Can Imagine.

Garlic can improve health. Significantly. Did you know that? Funny thing is though, most of the time that you think about garlic, you think about how horrible your breath is going to smell and how you obviously won’t be talking to anyone for the rest of the day. It makes sense then that this wonderful herb has had such a bad rap over the years and has pretty much been out of sight, out of mind.

Did you know, however, that garlic was actually considered divine in Egypt as a result of its therapeutic properties? Interestingly enough, despite it being mostly rebuked by western civilization, the more focused studies are done, the more people are starting to understand and believe in the curative powers of garlic. It’s really true. Garlic can improve health.

What can you do with garlic exactly? What makes it so special?

Well, instead of taking an aspirin to help prevent a heart attack, eat a clove of garlic. Garlic thins out blood just like aspirin can. Take it as you would a capsule. Swallow it with a glass of water. You don’t need to chew or taste it.

It also:

  • Helps prevent your arteries from clogging
  • Reduces blood pressure
  • Reduces cholesterol levels
  • It spikes the immune system (use liberally in a nice warm soup to help clear up a cold, congestion and chest infections)
  • Have intestinal worms or some sort of fungal infection? Garlic helps to fight against and get rid of them.
  • It’s known to have cancer-fighting capacities. Specifically, it helps against digestive, breast and prostate cancer, which if you are on testosterone therapy, may be a great addition to your diet.

Even though garlic can improve health and the above details sound fantastic, you don’t want to run to the kitchen and start downing garlic cloves. Remember, everything should always be done in moderation, even breathing.

Garlic can improve health

There are only about 4 calories in a clove of garlic but, consume too many of them and you can:

  • Develop heartburn
  • Develop flatulence
  • Have diarrhea
  • Develop skin rashes

In conclusion, it is really true. Garlic can improve health. There are studies coming out all the time about the incredible curative powers of foods. The benefits of foods over regular medication is that food really doesn’t cause negative side effects unless you are eating something you are allergic to or in exaggerated amounts.

Proteins and DNA: Their role in Anti-Aging 5 (1)

Proteins and DNA: Did you know…

  • Proteins are the active mechanisms in our cells, the molecular workhorses of life.
  • Proteins float around inside our cells or attach to membranes that are also inside cells.
  • When a protein bumps into one of the molecules it can attach to, the protein goes to work and performs the chemical steps of life.
  • Proteins give our cells their shape and function.
  • Proteins also allow the cells to produce chemicals and release them outside the cell wall, into the extracellular solutions, for example, the blood.

How do proteins know where to go?

Proteins are created in our cells by other proteins interacting with DNA and RNA. The DNA has the assembly instructions for how the protein is put together, and the RNA, very similar looking to the DNA, carries the message to wherever the protein assembly needs to take place, away and out of the nucleus where the DNA is fixed.

How do the proteins and cells know what they are supposed to do?

If a cell doesn’t have the code for a specific protein, the protein doesn’t get made. Some specialized cells produce specific kinds of protein that other cells don’t, even though all the cells in a body carry the same exact DNA. Some genes, or sequences of DNA information that code for the production of a protein, are expressed more or less depending on what kind of cell it is. Hair follicle cells produce keratin protein abundantly, other cells in the same body produce none at all. In a man, testicle cells not only produce sperm cells, but those same cells create a chemical signal to the other cells in the body. That chemical signal that gets released into the blood by the testicle cells is called Testosterone.

The instructions that a cell follows at any one given time are regulated by the role of the cell, defined by the local environment the cell is in. If the cell is in a hair follicle, the cell does what the other hair follicle cells are doing. If a cell is in the testicles, it does what the other testicle cells are doing: producing and releasing testosterone.

Mutations? How do they happen?

Different people carry different genes that have anything from a slight impact on the production of proteins; other genes that differ from person to person create drastic changes. For example, skin color or eye color are defined by whether the cell produces melanin or not. Some genes might also define whether the body produces something critical for health, or the degree to which the body produces that component. If a gene is so broken that it fails to do what it’s working version does, we call that broken coding a mutation. Most mutations don’t produce amazing X-men type effects. Most mutations are just broken mechanisms because the information used to assemble them is corrupted in the DNA. Part of the blueprint for the protein got scrambled, misplaced, or erased, during a mutation, and now the blueprint is virtually worthless.

The great part is that Growth Hormone actually has the ability to reverse mutations in our cells. Maintaining healthy hormone levels is the key way to maximize our cellular regeneration process and efficiency. Please contact us at your earliest convince so we may help you by answering any additional questions and by helping you through the qualification process for legal hGH and/or Testosterone therapy.

Is Testosterone Therapy Preventive Medicine? 5 (2)

Is Testosterone Therapy Preventive Medicine?

testosterone therapy preventive medicine

Is Testosterone therapy preventive medicine? This is a very fair question. We hear of so many pro’s and cons but, is there an actual medical need for testosterone. Is Testosterone therapy preventive medicine or, where does it rank in terms of the necessity for the male body?

It could be said that testosterone is what makes men, men. It gives them:

  • their characteristic deep voices
  • larger muscles
  • facial and body hair, distinguishing them from women.

It also:

  • stimulates the growth of the genitals at puberty
  • plays a role in sperm production
  • fuels libido
  • contributes to normal erections
  • fosters the production of red blood cells
  • boosts mood
  • aids cognition

Over time, the testicular “machinery” that makes testosterone gradually becomes less effective, and testosterone levels start to fall, by about 1% a year, beginning in the 40s. As men get into their 50s, 60s, and beyond, they may start to have signs and symptoms of low testosterone such as:

  • lower sex drive and sense of vitality
  • erectile dysfunction
  • decreased energy
  • reduced muscle mass and bone density
  • and even anemia, to name a few.

Taken together, these signs and symptoms are often called hypogonadism (“hypo” meaning low functioning and “gonadism” referring to the testicles). Researchers estimate that the condition affects anywhere from two to six million men in the United States. Yet it is an underdiagnosed problem, with only about 5% of those affected receiving treatment.

Studies have shown that testosterone-replacement therapy may offer a wide range of benefits for men with hypogonadism, including improved libido, mood, cognition, muscle mass, bone density, and red blood cell production.

Taking into account some of the scientific facts delineated above, its simple to see how maintaining healthy testosterone levels can help in preventing accelerated aging. If maintaining healthy testosterone levels is reflected in a patient maintaining their vigor, strength, sexual interest and functionality and positive attitude, then it should be deemed preventive medicine. We think we can say “yes”. Testosterone therapy is preventive medicine.

Consider the fact that Testosterone is an incomparable antioxidant to the heart and its proven to maintain and aid in brain health. Not only do these points make testosterone out to be preventive medicine, it proves it an invaluable aspect of a male’s anti-aging regimen. No matter how well off all your other hormones are, as a male, if your testosterone is low, you are just simply not your normal self… and you can feel it. Call us at your earliest convenience so we can help you determine your testosterone levels. We even have

Take advantage, testosterone therapy preventive medicine is our area of expertise. Let us share more life-transforming fact as they would affect you specifically. Contact us now.

 

testosterone-injections

 

Testosterone Injections is the most common treatment for men going through andropause. This therapy may provide help and relief from the symptoms and help improve the quality of life in many cases, also lifestyle changes such as increased exercise, stress reduction, and proper nutrition also help.

Testosterone therapy is available in different forms, ask your doctor he will help determine which treatment is best for you.

TESTOSTERONE INJECTIONS: This treatment involves doses of bioidentical (Testosterone Cypionate, Testosterone Enanthate, and Testosterone Propionate).

TESTOSTERONE PATCHES: People who wear a piece containing testosterone receive the hormone through the skin. The patches allow a slow, steady release of testosterone into the bloodstream.

TESTOSTERONE GEL: This treatment is also applied directly to the skin, usually on the arms. Because the gel may transfer to other individuals through skin contact, a person must take care to wash the gel from the hands after each application.

TESTOSTERONE CAPSULES: This is yet another option for testosterone replacement. Men with liver disease, poor liver function, severe heart or kidney disease, or too much calcium in their blood should avoid testosterone capsules.

Follow-up visits with your doctor will be necessary after the initial treatment begins. At follow-up visits, your doctor will check your response to the treatment and make adjustments, if necessary.

Sleep, is it really that important? 5 (1)

Sleep

Sleep not an option? What we do here at AAI Rejuvenation Clinic is phenomenally rewarding work for those of us that have the unique opportunity of calling this our place of employment. On an every-day basis, we get to hear patient stories of reward and conquer, as they reach their health and fitness goals and the array of peripheral, quality-of-life enhancing benefits that always come along with feeling great.

  • Yes, our therapies are great and actually work!
  • Yes, the are individualized to focus on specific patient issues.
  • Yes, “yes” to all the other wonderful things you’d expect us to say in an effort to entice you to try and experience the superiority of our service.

However, let’s get beyond those formalities so we can get to some core truths. Free facts that are more important and more self-rewarding than any therapy or program any clinic can devise and structure for you.

The causes of low testosterone, symptoms of Low Testosterone, Chronic Fatigue

Sleep Studies

There have been an array of medical studies pointing to the fact that sleep, or lack thereof, has a direct correlation to our energy levels, cognitive functions and even organ and cellular health. Most commonly, adults are expected to sleep around 9 hours a day in order to get the adequate amount necessary for optimal systemic function. Unfortunately, the great majority of people get far less sleep than is necessary and recommended. Moreover, the number of people that are getting poor quality of sleep is slowly but surely increasing, leaving us to walk around in a world full of sleep-deprived, moody zombies.

Let’s talk scary numbers:

  • 60% of adults are not getting enough sleep.
    – The average American is in bed 7.5 hours but only asleep about 6.1.
  • Recommended sleep requirements:
    • – Infants      = 15 – 14 hours
      – Toddlers   = 14 – 12 hours
      – Children   = 11 – 10 hours
      – Adults       =   9 – 7 hours
  • Sleep just 6 hours a night and increase the chances of being overweight by 27% (about 14lbs a year).
  • Sleep 6 hours a day and increase the possibility of heart disease by 48%.
  • Sleep only 5 hours and increase this risk to 73%.
  • Sleeping less than 5 hours a day reduces your hormonal production by 27% and interferes with other endocrine functions so complex, you cannot measure them by a simple % indication.
  • Sleep only 4 ours a night and you will increase daily calorie intake by 22%.
  • Reducing your average night sleep by 1.5 hours impairs alertness by 32%.
  • If you only sleep 6 hours a night for 2 weeks straight your cognitive equivalence to blood alcohol level will be .10%.
  • Driving while sleepy can be equally, if not more dangerous than driving while drunk.
  • Driving while sleepy accounts for 20% of all annual car accidents.
  • There is a gene that allows people to function well only 6 hours of sleep but, it only exists in 3% of the population.

Positive sleeping points:

  • Sleeping more is not an option? Take a nap: a 20-minute nap increases cognitive function by 40%, enhancing concentration, alertness and motor skills.
  • A 45-minute nap with REM sleep enhances creative thinking and boosts sensory processing.
  • Naps over 45 or 90 minutes will leave you groggy and disoriented.
  • Complete darkness stimulates melatonin – sleep hormone.

AAI Clinics can help you with sleeping issues. If you find that you are not acquiring the adequate amount of rest necessary to really promote your best potential and healthiest self, contact us for assistance. Despite the fact that well-balanced hormone levels significantly aid and promote restful quality of sleep, there are other nutraceuticals that we can provide needing patients with in order to promote real deep, quality of rest that isn’t induced by synthetic drug absorption.

Depending on your particular issues and life circumstances, you will want to click on the below medications to read the herbal facts and medicinal details of each of the below body-and-mind calming options to see which one of these, or combination of these, will best aid you in your quest for real quality rest.

  • L-Tryptophan
  • Sereniten Plus
  • Relora ®-Plex
  • Seditol ® Plus
  • Brain CALM
  • Valerian Root Max-V
  • Valsed
  • Melatonin (3 mg)
  • Controlled-Release Melatonin

Sleep disturbance

Sleeping disturbance affects every facet of our existence. Many sleeping-related problems can be overcome with testosterone therapy. Men with lower testosterone levels have lower sleep efficiency, with increased nocturnal awakenings and less slow-wave (REM). Studies have even shown that sleeping disturbances caused by apnea, a chronic breathing problem, may be linked to low testosterone levels.

In a 2011 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), ten men volunteered to have their testosterone levels checked during eight nights of Sleep Disturbance restriction. They were only allowed five hours of rest per night. The study found their daytime testosterone levels decreased by 10 to 15 percent. The lowest testosterone levels were in the afternoon and evening. The study also found a progressive loss of energy over the course of the week.

Thus, there appears to be a direct correlation between testosterone levels and better rest quantity and quality. Here at AAI Rejuvenation Clinic, we’re ready to help. Our services are discrete and confidential. Contact us today at (866) 224-5698

Depo Testosterone Description and Information 5 (1)

Depo Testosterone

Depo Testosterone Injection, for intramuscular injection, contains testosterone cypionate which is the oil-soluble 17 (beta)- cyclopentyl propionate ester of the androgenic hormone testosterone.

Testosterone cypionate is a white or creamy white crystalline powder, odorless or nearly so and stable in air. It is insoluble in water, freely soluble in alcohol, chloroform, dioxane, ether, and soluble in vegetable oils.

The chemical name for testosterone cypionate is androst-4-en-3-one, 17-(3-cyclopentyl-1-oxopropoxy)-, (17β)-. Its molecular formula is C27H40O3, and the molecular weight 412.61.

The structural formula is represented below:


Depo-Testosterone Injection is available in two strengths, 100 mg/mL, and 200 mg/mL testosterone cypionate.

Each mL of the 100 mg/mL solution contains:
Testosterone cypionate……………………………………………………………………….. 100 mg
Benzyl benzoate …………………………………………………………………………………. 0.1 mL
Cottonseed oil …………………………………………………………………………………… 736 mg
Benzyl alcohol (as preservative) …………………………………………………………… 9.45 mg

Each mL of the 200 mg/mL solution contains:
Testosterone cypionate ………………………………………………………………………. 200 mg
Benzyl benzoate …………………………………………………………………………………. 0.2 mL
Cottonseed oil …………………………………………………………………………………… 560 mg
Benzyl alcohol (as preservative) …………………………………………………………… 9.45 mg

Depo Testosterone – Clinical Pharmacology
Endogenous androgens are responsible for normal growth and development of the male sex organs and for maintenance of secondary sex characteristics. These effects include growth and maturation of the prostate, seminal vesicles, penis, and scrotum; development of male hair distribution, such as beard, pubic, chest, and axillary hair; laryngeal enlargement, vocal cord thickening, and alterations in body musculature and fat distribution. Drugs in this class also cause retention of nitrogen, sodium, potassium, and phosphorous, and decreased urinary excretion of calcium. Androgens have been reported to increase protein anabolism and decrease protein catabolism. Nitrogen balance is improved only when there is sufficient intake of calories and protein.

Androgens are responsible for the growth spurt of adolescence and for eventual termination of linear growth, brought about by fusion of the epiphyseal growth centers. In children, exogenous androgens accelerate linear growth rates but may cause a disproportionate advancement in bone maturation. Use over long periods may result in fusion of the epiphyseal growth centers and termination of the growth process. Androgens have been reported to stimulate the production of red blood cells by enhancing production of erythropoietic stimulation factor.

Slideshow: Welcome to Parenthood! 10 Things To Prepare Yourself For Welcome to Parenthood! 10 Things To Prepare Yourself For:
During exogenous administration of androgens, endogenous testosterone release is inhibited through feedback inhibition of pituitary luteinizing hormone (LH). At large doses of exogenous androgens, spermatogenesis may also be suppressed through feedback inhibition of pituitary follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH).

There is a lack of substantial evidence that androgens are effective in fractures, surgery, convalescence, and functional uterine bleeding.

Pharmacokinetics
Testosterone esters are less polar than free testosterone. Testosterone esters in oil injected intramuscularly are absorbed slowly from the lipid phase; thus, testosterone cypionate can be given at intervals of two to four weeks.

Testosterone in plasma is 98 percent bound to a specific testosterone-estradiol binding globulin, and about 2 percent is free. Generally, the amount of this sex-hormone binding globulin in the plasma will determine the distribution of testosterone between free and bound forms, and the free testosterone concentration will determine its half-life.

About 90 percent of a dose of testosterone is excreted in the urine as glucuronic and sulfuric acid conjugates of testosterone and its metabolites; about 6 percent of a dose is excreted in the feces, mostly in the unconjugated form. Inactivation of testosterone occurs primarily in the liver. Testosterone is metabolized to various 17-keto steroids through two different pathways.

The half-life of testosterone cypionate, when injected intramuscularly, is approximately eight days.

In many tissues, the activity of testosterone therapy appears to depend on reduction to dihydrotestosterone, which binds to cytosol receptor proteins. The steroid-receptor complex is transported to the nucleus where it initiates transcription events and cellular changes related to androgen action.

Indications and Usage for Depo Testosterone

Depo Testosterone Injection is indicated for replacement therapy in the male in conditions associated with symptoms of deficiency or absence of endogenous testosterone.

1. Primary hypogonadism (congenital or acquired)-testicular failure due to cryptorchidism, bilateral torsion, orchitis, vanishing testis syndrome; or orchidectomy.

2. Hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (congenital or acquired)- gonadotropin or LHRH deficiency, or pituitary-hypothalamic injury from tumors, trauma, or radiation.

Safety and efficacy of Depo Testosterone (testosterone cypionate) in men with “age-related hypogonadism” (also referred to as “late-onset hypogonadism”) have not been established.

Contraindications

  1. Known hypersensitivity to the drug
  2. Males with carcinoma of the breast
  3. Males with known or suspected carcinoma of the prostate gland
  4. Women who are or who may become pregnant
  5. Patients with serious cardiac, hepatic or renal disease

Warnings

Hypercalcemia may occur in immobilized patients. If this occurs, the drug should be discontinued.

Prolonged use of high doses of androgens (principally the 17-α alkyl-androgens) has been associated with the development of hepatic adenomas, hepatocellular carcinoma, and peliosis hepatis —all potentially life-threatening complications.

Geriatric patients treated with androgens may be at an increased risk of developing prostatic hypertrophy and prostatic carcinoma although conclusive evidence to support this concept is lacking.

There have been postmarketing reports of venous thromboembolic events, including deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), in patients using testosterone products, such as testosterone cypionate. Evaluate patients who report symptoms of pain, edema, warmth, and erythema in the lower extremity for DVT and those who present with acute shortness of breath for PE. If a venous thromboembolic event is suspected, discontinue treatment with testosterone cypionate and initiate appropriate workup and management.

Long-term clinical safety trials have not been conducted to assess the cardiovascular outcomes of testosterone replacement therapy in men. To date, epidemiologic studies and randomized controlled trials have been inconclusive for determining the risk of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE), such as non-fatal myocardial infarction, non-fatal stroke, and cardiovascular death, with the use of testosterone compared to non-use. Some studies, but not all, have reported an increased risk of MACE in association with the use of testosterone replacement therapy in men. Patients should be informed of this possible risk when deciding whether to use or to continue to use Depo Testosterone (testosterone cypionate).

Edema, with or without congestive heart failure, may be a serious complication in patients with pre-existing cardiac, renal or hepatic disease.

Gynecomastia may develop and occasionally persists in patients being treated for hypogonadism.

The preservative benzyl alcohol has been associated with serious adverse events, including the “gasping syndrome”, and death in pediatric patients. Although normal therapeutic doses of this product ordinarily deliver amounts of benzyl alcohol that are substantially lower than those reported in association with the “gasping syndrome”, the minimum amount of benzyl alcohol at which toxicity may occur is not known. The risk of benzyl alcohol toxicity depends on the quantity administered and the hepatic capacity to detoxify the chemical. Premature and low-birth weight infants may be more likely to develop toxicity.

Androgen therapy should be used cautiously in healthy males with delayed puberty. The effect on bone maturation should be monitored by assessing the bone age of the wrist and hand every 6 months. In children, androgen treatment may accelerate bone maturation without producing the compensatory gain in linear growth. This adverse effect may result in compromised adult stature. The younger the child the greater the risk of compromising final mature height.

This drug has not been shown to be safe and effective for the enhancement of athletic performance. Because of the potential risk of serious adverse health effects, this drug should not be used for such purpose.

Precautions

General

Patients with benign prostatic hypertrophy may develop acute urethral obstruction. Priapism or excessive sexual stimulation may develop. Oligospermia may occur after prolonged administration or excessive dosage. If any of these effects appear, the androgen should be stopped and if restarted, a lower dosage should be utilized.

Testosterone cypionate should not be used interchangeably with testosterone propionate because of differences in duration of action.

Testosterone cypionate is not for intravenous use.

Information for patients

Patients should be instructed to report any of the following: nausea, vomiting, changes in skin color, ankle swelling, too frequent or persistent erections of the penis.

Laboratory tests

Hemoglobin and hematocrit levels (to detect polycythemia) should be checked periodically in patients receiving long-term androgen administration.

Serum cholesterol may increase during androgen therapy.

Drug interactions

Androgens may increase sensitivity to oral anticoagulants. The dosage of the anticoagulant may require the reduction in order to maintain satisfactory therapeutic hypoprothrombinemia.

Concurrent administration of oxyphenbutazone and androgens may result in elevated serum levels of oxyphenbutazone.

In diabetic patients, the metabolic effects of androgens may decrease blood glucose and, therefore, insulin requirements.

Drug/Laboratory test Interferences

Androgens may decrease levels of thyroxine-binding globulin, resulting in decreased total T4 serum levels and increased resin uptake of T3 and T4. Free thyroid hormone levels remain unchanged, however, and there is no clinical evidence of thyroid dysfunction.

Carcinogenesis

Animal data

Testosterone has been tested by subcutaneous injection and implantation in mice and rats. The implant induced cervical-uterine tumors in mice, which metastasized in some cases. There is suggestive evidence that injection of testosterone into some strains of female mice increases their susceptibility to hepatoma. Testosterone is also known to increase the number of tumors and decrease the degree of differentiation of chemically induced carcinomas of the liver in rats.

Human data

There are rare reports of hepatocellular carcinoma in patients receiving long-term therapy with androgens in high doses. Withdrawal of the drugs did not lead to regression of the tumors in all cases.

Geriatric patients treated with androgens may be at an increased risk of developing prostatic hypertrophy and prostatic carcinoma although conclusive evidence to support this concept is lacking.

Pregnancy

Teratogenic Effects

Pregnancy Category X. (See CONTRAINDICATIONS.)

Benzyl alcohol can cross the placenta. See WARNINGS.

Nursing Mothers

Depo Testosterone is not recommended for use in nursing mothers.

Pediatric use

Safety and effectiveness in pediatric patients below the age of 12 years have not been established.

Adverse Reactions

The following adverse reactions in the male have occurred with some androgens:

Endocrine and urogenital: Gynecomastia and excessive frequency and duration of penile erections. Oligospermia may occur at high dosages.

Skin and appendages: Hirsutism, male pattern of baldness, seborrhea, and acne.

Cardiovascular Disorders: myocardial infarction, stroke.

Fluid and electrolyte disturbances: Retention of sodium, chloride, water, potassium, calcium, and inorganic phosphates.

Gastrointestinal: Nausea, cholestatic jaundice, alterations in liver function tests, rarely hepatocellular neoplasms and peliosis hepatis (see WARNINGS).

Hematologic: Suppression of clotting factors II, V, VII, and X, bleeding in patients on concomitant anticoagulant therapy, and polycythemia.

Nervous system: Increased or decreased libido, headache, anxiety, depression, and generalized paresthesia.

Allergic: Hypersensitivity, including skin manifestations and anaphylactoid reactions.

Vascular disorders: Venous thromboembolism.

Miscellaneous: Inflammation and pain at the site of intramuscular injection.

Drug Abuse and Dependence

Controlled Substance Class

Testosterone is a controlled substance under the Anabolic Steroids Control Act, and Depo Testosterone Injection has been assigned to Schedule III.

Overdosage

There have been no reports of acute overdosage with the androgens.

Depo Testosterone Dosage and Administration

Prior to initiating Depo Testosterone (testosterone cypionate), confirm the diagnosis of hypogonadism by ensuring that serum testosterone concentrations have been measured in the morning on at least two separate days and that these serum testosterone concentrations are below the normal range.

Depo Testosterone Injection is for intramuscular use only.

It should not be given intravenously. Intramuscular injections should be given deep in the gluteal muscle.

The suggested dosage for Depo Testosterone Injection varies depending on the age, sex, and diagnosis of the individual patient. Dosage is adjusted according to the patient’s response and the appearance of adverse reactions.

Various dosage regimens have been used to induce pubertal changes in hypogonadal males; some experts have advocated lower dosages initially, gradually increasing the dose as puberty progresses, with or without a decrease to maintenance levels. Other experts emphasize that higher dosages are needed to induce pubertal changes and lower dosages can be used for maintenance after puberty. The chronological and skeletal ages must be taken into consideration, both in determining the initial dose and in adjusting the dose.

For replacement in the hypogonadal male, 50400 mg should be administered every two to four weeks.

Parenteral drug products should be inspected visually for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration, whenever solution and container permit. Warming and shaking the vial should redissolve any crystals that may have formed during storage at temperatures lower than recommended.

How is Depo Testosterone Supplied

Depo Testosterone Injections is available as follows:

100 mg/mL
10 mL vials                    NDC 0009-0347-02

200 mg/mL

Testosterone esters are less polar than free testosterone. Testosterone esters in oil injected intramuscularly are absorbed slowly from the lipid phase; thus, Testosterone Cypionate can be given at intervals of two to four weeks.

Testosterone in plasma is 98 percent bound to a specific testosterone-estradiol binding globulin, and about 2 percent is free. Generally, the amount of this sex-hormone binding globulin in the plasma will determine the distribution of testosterone between free and bound forms, and the free testosterone concentration will determine its half-life.

About 90 percent of a dose of testosterone injections is excreted in the urine as glucuronic and sulfuric acid conjugates of testosterone and its metabolites; about 6 percent of a dose is excreted in the feces, mostly in the unconjugated form. Inactivation of testosterone occurs primarily in the liver. Testosterone therapy is metabolized to various 17-keto steroids through two different pathways.

The half-life of Testosterone Cypionate, when injected intramuscularly, is approximately eight days.

In many tissues, the activity of testosterone therapy appears to depend on reduction to dihydrotestosterone, which binds to cytosol receptor proteins. The steroid-receptor complex is transported to the nucleus where it initiates transcription events and cellular changes related to androgen action.

Indications and Usage for Testosterone Cypionate description

Testosterone Cypionate description injection is indicated for replacement therapy in the male in conditions associated with symptoms of deficiency or absence of endogenous testosterone.

  • Primary hypogonadism (congenital or acquired)-testicular failure due to cryptorchidism, bilateral torsion, orchitis, vanishing testis syndrome; or orchidectomy.
  • Hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (congenital or acquired): gonadotropin or LHRH deficiency, or pituitary-hypothalamic injury from tumors, trauma, or radiation.

Safety and efficacy of Testosterone Cypionate description in men with “age-related hypogonadism” (also referred to as “late-onset hypogonadism”) have not been established.

Contraindications

  1. Known hypersensitivity to the drug
  2. Males with carcinoma of the breast
  3. Males with known or suspected carcinoma of the prostate gland
  4. Women who are or who may become pregnant
  5. Patients with serious cardiac, hepatic or renal disease

Warnings

Hypercalcemia may occur in immobilized patients. If this occurs, the drug should be discontinued.

Prolonged use of high doses of androgens (principally the 17-α alkyl-androgens) has been associated with the development of hepatic adenomas, hepatocellular carcinoma, and peliosis hepatis —all potentially life-threatening complications.

Geriatric patients treated with androgens may be at an increased risk of developing prostatic hypertrophy and prostatic carcinoma although conclusive evidence to support this concept is lacking.

There have been postmarketing reports of venous thromboembolic events, including deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), in patients using testosterone products, such as Testosterone Cypionate description. Evaluate patients who report symptoms of pain, edema, warmth, and erythema in the lower extremity for DVT and those who present with acute shortness of breath for PE. If a venous thromboembolic event is suspected, discontinue treatment with Testosterone Cypionate description and initiate appropriate workup and management.

Long term clinical safety trials have not been conducted to assess the cardiovascular outcomes of testosterone replacement therapy in men. To date, epidemiologic studies and randomized controlled trials have been inconclusive for determining the risk of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE), such as non-fatal myocardial infarction, non-fatal stroke, and cardiovascular death, with the use of testosterone compared to non-use. Some studies, but not all, have reported an increased risk of MACE in association with the use of testosterone replacement therapy in men. Patients should be informed of this possible risk when deciding whether to use or to continue to use Testosterone Cypionate description.

Edema, with or without congestive heart failure, may be a serious complication in patients with preexisting cardiac, renal or hepatic disease.

Gynecomastia may develop and occasionally persists in patients being treated for hypogonadism.

The preservative benzyl alcohol has been associated with serious adverse events, including the “gasping syndrome”, and death in pediatric patients. Although normal therapeutic doses of this product ordinarily deliver amounts of benzyl alcohol that are substantially lower than those reported in association with the “gasping syndrome”, the minimum amount of benzyl alcohol at which toxicity may occur is not known. The risk of benzyl alcohol toxicity depends on the quantity administered and the hepatic capacity to detoxify the chemical. Premature and low-birth weight infants may be more likely to develop toxicity.

Androgen therapy should be used cautiously in healthy males with delayed puberty. The effect on bone maturation should be monitored by assessing the bone age of the wrist and hand every 6 months. In children, androgen treatment may accelerate bone maturation without producing a compensatory gain in linear growth. This adverse effect may result in compromised adult stature. The younger the child the greater the risk of compromising final mature height.

This drug has not been shown to be safe and effective for the enhancement of athletic performance. Because of the potential risk of serious adverse health effects, this drug should not be used for such purpose.

Precautions

General

Patients with benign prostatic hypertrophy may develop acute urethral obstruction. Priapism or excessive sexual stimulation may develop. Oligospermia may occur after prolonged administration or excessive dosage. If any of these effects appear, the androgen should be stopped and if restarted, a lower dosage should be utilized.

Testosterone Cypionate description should not be used interchangeably with testosterone propionate description because of differences in duration of action.

Testosterone Cypionate description is not for intravenous use.

Information for Patients

Patients should be instructed to report any of the following: nausea, vomiting, changes in skin color, ankle swelling, too frequent or persistent erections of the penis.

Laboratory Tests

Hemoglobin and hematocrit levels (to detect polycythemia) should be checked periodically in patients receiving long-term androgen administration.

Serum cholesterol may increase during androgen therapy.

Drug Interactions

Androgens may increase sensitivity to oral anticoagulants. The dosage of the anticoagulant may require a reduction in order to maintain satisfactory therapeutic hypoprothrombinemia.

Concurrent administration of oxyphenbutazone and androgens may result in elevated serum levels of oxyphenbutazone.

In diabetic patients, the metabolic effects of androgens may decrease blood glucose and, therefore, insulin requirements.

Drug/Laboratory Test Interferences

Androgens may decrease levels of thyroxine-binding globulin, resulting in decreased total T4 serum levels and increased resin uptake of T3 and T4. Free thyroid hormone levels remain unchanged, however, and there is no clinical evidence of thyroid dysfunction.

Carcinogenesis

Animal data

Testosterone has been tested by subcutaneous injection and implantation in mice and rats. The implant induced cervical-uterine tumors in mice, which metastasized in some cases. There is suggestive evidence that injection of testosterone into some strains of female mice increases their susceptibility to hepatoma. Testosterone is also known to increase the number of tumors and decrease the degree of differentiation of chemically induced carcinomas of the liver in rats.

Human data

There are rare reports of hepatocellular carcinoma in patients receiving long-term therapy with androgens in high doses. Withdrawal of the drugs did not lead to regression of the tumors in all cases.

Geriatric patients treated with androgens may be at an increased risk of developing prostatic hypertrophy and prostatic carcinoma although conclusive evidence to support this concept is lacking.

Pregnancy

Teratogenic Effects

Pregnancy Category X. (See CONTRAINDICATIONS)

Benzyl alcohol can cross the placenta. See WARNINGS.

Nursing Mothers

Testosterone Cypionate description is not recommended for use in nursing mothers.

Pediatric Use

Safety and effectiveness in pediatric patients below the age of 12 years have not been established.

Adverse Reactions

The following adverse reactions in the male have occurred with some androgens:

Endocrine and urogenital: Gynecomastia and excessive frequency and duration of penile erections. Oligospermia may occur at high dosages.

Skin and Appendages: Hirsutism, male pattern of baldness, seborrhea, and acne.

Cardiovascular Disorders – myocardial infarction, stroke

Fluid and electrolyte disturbances: Retention of sodium, chloride, water, potassium, calcium, and inorganic phosphates.

Gastrointestinal: Nausea, cholestatic jaundice, alterations in liver function tests, rarely hepatocellular neoplasms and peliosis hepatis (see WARNINGS).

Hematologic: Suppression of clotting factors II, V, VII, and X, bleeding in patients on concomitant anticoagulant therapy, and polycythemia.

Nervous system: Increased or decreased libido, headache, anxiety, depression, and generalized paresthesia.

Allergic: Hypersensitivity, including skin manifestations and anaphylactoid reactions.

Vascular Disorders: venous thromboembolism

Miscellaneous: Inflammation and pain at the site of intramuscular testosterone injection.

Enzymes: Why do we need them to stay healthy? 5 (1)

Enzymes

Enzymes: What do we need them for? How do Enzymes work?

Enzymes, how important are they to anti-aging and why should we all take Ultrazymes from Douglas Labs.

Let us explain that enzymes are extremely microscopic, much smaller even than DNA.

Let’s talk for a second about the creation of DNA:

  • The Nucleus of every cell makes DNA.
  • Like a photocopy machine, that’s all it does. It makes DNA instructions which determine how our bodies will function, controlling both Structure and function.
  • The job of making so much daily DNA is so monumental that mistakes are made in various strands of the DNA.
  • Every cell makes these small mistakes, which, if not corrected would indeed result in death.

So, why aren’t we all falling apart and mutating? This is because of the enzymes. It is here that their role is of paramount importance, protecting our bodies and lives from unwavering deterioration. How does this work? Simple:

  • Tiny enzymes just a few molecules in size are directed by our biofeedback loop to go to the site of a bad strand of DNA.
  • Once it gets to that damaged area of DNA, they splice it out.
  • At that same time, the Nucleus makes a perfected copy of the spliced piece of DNA.
  • Another set then carries the new strand of perfected DNA to the area that was bad and splices in the new perfected strand of DNA.

It is in this most remarkable way that each second of our life they keep our DNA perfected so we do not die or get a horrible illness.

The problem is we do not get enzymes in our highly processed food. There is another imperative for them though: that of digesting our food. If we do not have them for that purpose we would be gravely ill or we would die. The end result is if we do not have enough of them and digestion of food is primary, then no DNA repair will happen and folks will eventually suffer devastating illnesses.

We want our clients and patients to be vitally healthy and live much longer so what we MUST make certain is that they have an abundance of wide spectrum ENZYMES each and every second of each and every day! It is that important! That is why we ultimately place ALL our clients on Ultrazyme from Douglas Labs.

Live Long. Live Well. Make Certain You’re Blood Pressure is Normal in 2016. 5 (1)

Blood Pressure An Important New Year message
from your Friends at AAI Rejuvenation Clinic

We here at AAI are committed to keeping our clients in perfected states of good health. Anti-Aging and Longevity start with the very simplest basics, which we often forget, like making certain our blood pressure is normal, to very slightly below normal. Why? Because high blood pressure has no warning signs, you feel normal.

HOWEVER:

  • High blood pressure is a “silent killer” because it usually has no warning signs, yet it can lead to life-threatening conditions like heart attack or stroke.
  • 1 out of 3 people has high blood pressure!!
  • The good news is that high blood pressure, or hypertension, can often be prevented or treated. It is imperative to be diagnosed as early as possible.

We live in an age where many folks do not even have a primary doctor. Please let me say that is a very big mistake. Some of us, I included forgetting to take our Blood Pressure medicine or skip days… That is truly playing with fire. The facts speak loudly:

  • Every 3 months our blood pressure is subject to change.

We must stay on top of this health factor, as it is so consequential to a long, healthy fruitful life.

Normal blood flow delivers nutrients and oxygen to all parts of your body, including important organs like:

  • Heart
  • Brain
  • Kidneys

Your heart helps to push blood through your massive network of blood vessels, large and small. Your blood vessels, in turn, constantly adjust. They become narrower or wider in response to how much volume of blood is pumped out with each beat of your heart. We call this blood stroke volume.

  • If your arteries are starting to get stiff and a little brittle with middle age it can be because at mid-age we lose some of the all-important and vital elastin in our arteries.
  • We have collagen to make the arteries and veins strong and elastic to make them expand properly.

It’s normal for your blood pressure to go up and down throughout each day. Blood pressure is affected by:

  • Time of day
  • Exercise
  • The foods you eat
  • Stress
  • and other factors such as heredity.

Problems can arise, though, if your blood pressure stays too high for too long.

  • High blood pressure can make your heart work too hard and lose strength.
  • The high force of blood flow can damage your blood vessels, making them weak, stiff, or narrower.
  • Over time, hypertension can harm several important organs, including:
    – heart
    – kidneys
    – brain
    – eyes

Hypertension is a leading risk factor for death and disability worldwide, according to Dr. Paul Whelton, an expert in hypertension and kidney disease at Tulane University. “High blood pressure raises the risk of having a heart attack, heart failure, stroke, or kidney disease.”

  • Putting on extra weight or having a family history of high blood pressure also raises your risk for hypertension. You must take meaningful action.
  • The number one thing that you can do is to lose weight and get daily exercise.

Eat fewer fats and simple sugars….you want healthy fats like omega 3 high-density lipids from high-quality fish oil. We can help with that with our lab, which quite literally only has the highest quality nutraceutical supplements.

Because it usually has no symptoms, the only way to know for sure that you have hypertension is to have a blood pressure test at least once a month. This easy, painless test involves placing an inflated cuff with a pressure gauge around your upper arm to squeeze the blood vessels. A healthcare provider may then use a stethoscope to listen to your pulse as air is released from the cuff, or an automatic device may measure the pressure.

Blood pressure is given as 2 numbers.

  • The first number represents the pressure in your blood vessels as the heartbeats (systolic pressure).
  • The second is the pressure as your heart relaxes and fills with blood (diastolic pressure).

Experts generally agree that the safest blood pressure—or “normal” blood pressure—is 120/80 or lower, meaning systolic blood pressure is 120 or less and diastolic pressure is 80 or less. I like to keep mine at 114/70 because that is still very safe and puts much less pressure against the artery walls.

High blood pressure is defined as having an average blood pressure of above 140/90 according to the National Institute of Health’s Dr. Lawrence Fine. He oversees research on the treatment and prevention of hypertension. Since blood pressure can vary widely from day to day, a diagnosis of hypertension is usually based on an average of 2 or more readings taken on 2 or more occasions.

When diet and exercise fail, there are now medications that do not have the terrible side effects that so many people complain about. Remember we talked about the arteries needing elastin at youthful levels in order to have healthy arteries able to stretch without bursting? The prescription Enalapril comes from a group called Ace Inhibitors and scientists have found a very remarkable aspect to Ace Inhibitors.

  • Ace inhibitors can cause the artery walls to make elastin and become more youthful in a healthy ability to stretch and as they are able to stretch out more safely, blood pressure goes down with very few, if any, side effects.
  • Ace inhibitors also make the kidneys, heart, and brain healthier, according to cardiologist Dr. Luis Tami.

So folks, this New Year please make certain your blood pressure is normal and if it’s not please call your doctor right away. If you are one of our patients, call your assigned Wellness Advisor at AAI ASAP.

What is Testosterone-Cypionate? 5 (1)

Testosterone-Cypionate the form of testosterone provided most often in testosterone therapy. It’s a specific form of testosterone, slightly different than what human bodies produce on their own, but for reasons essential to its administration to the body. To maximize the benefits of male hormone therapy, testosterone Cypionate is one of the types of testosterone a person can inject or get in a gel. There are very specific reasons why this form of testosterone is most popular for therapy.

Testosterone is the substance produced in human bodies that regulate the expression of male characteristics. It also promotes healing and mental well-being. It’s a relatively small organic molecule that isn’t a protein or peptide-like HGH, but instead is very similar to cholesterol or Vitamin E; it’s a hydrocarbon ring, an oil-soluble type of substance. It travels to all parts of the body through the blood. In males, it’s produced by specific cells in the testicles, triggered by signals from the brain, which also travel through the blood. The amount of testosterone in a man’s blood correlates directly with the masculine traits he exhibits, i.e., being hairy, being strong, and having physical and mental energy.

The human body produces a natural form of testosterone.

When humans produce testosterone in their body, the specific type of testosterone that’s produced is just plain testosterone. No additional fragment is stuck to it, as in the case of testosterone-Cypionate where what’s called a Cypionate moiety is stuck to one end of the testosterone molecule.  Technically, human bodies don’t produce the Cypionate form, but doses of testosterone injections are taken in the Cypionate form as opposed to just plain testosterone by itself.

what is testosterone cypionate used if the body doesn’t make that form?

When testosterone-Cypionate is administered in the form of a gel or injection, the body converts the Cypionate form into plain testosterone. There are enzymes called esterases that target the connection between the Cypionate moiety and the testosterone molecule, breaking off the Cypionate from testosterone, leaving plain testosterone in the form that the body uses it. These esterases yield the same molecule of testosterone the body produces. This is why testosterone-Cypionate is referred to as bio-identical testosterone, putting it into the body is essentially equivalent to increasing what the body has made at one time and is already capable of using, natural testosterone in the form the body uses it.

A time-release effect provides stable hormone levels.

The reason the Cypionate form is administered, as opposed to just plain testosterone, is to provide a time-release type of effect. Making the molecule more oil-soluble tends to stabilize the blood levels of free testosterone, releasing more gradually over time. If free testosterone were injected directly, we’d observe a peak in its blood concentration immediately after injection followed by a rapid decrease thereafter. By injecting the Cypionate form, more of the testosterone gets absorbed by the body’s fatty tissue to be released more gradually over time. It gets dissolved into the blood more slowly, and the blood concentrations of testosterone Therapy resemble a more stable pattern useful for therapy. Instead of having to get multiple injections daily, with testosterone-Cypionate you can instead space out injections on the order of weeks.

As we discussed in our previous blog post about the different forms of testosterone, testosterone-Cypionate is only one out of several that are included in therapeutic doses. The dosage and forms that are prescribed to anti-aging patients differ from patient to patient. Whatever form is prescribed, it’s important to follow dosage instructions as precisely as possible. Both the form and the dosage times are chosen together to provide the most stable, consistent hormone levels possible, getting the most benefits with the least side effects.
