Melatonin: Research Suggest That An Increase In Melatonin Levels May Help Reduce Prostate Cancer

Melatonin: Research Suggest That An Increase
In Melatonin Levels May Help Reduce Prostate Cancer


(Calgary, AB) -  Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland in the brain. It helps regulate other hormones and maintains the body's circadian rhythm. The circadian rhythm is an internal 24-hour “clock” that plays a critical role in when we fall asleep and when we wake up. When it is dark, your body produces more melatonin; when it is light, the production of melatonin drops (1)

Recently, there has been some discussion about melatonin and its relationship to prostate cancer. Preliminary research seems to suggest that an increase in melatonin levels may cause a reduction in  prostate cancer in men.

On January 20, 2014 The University Herald published an article titled "Prostate Cancer Linked To Melatonin In New Study: Can The Sleep Hormone Help Lower The Risk Of The Disease?"

The article cited a study that was presented at an American Association of Cancer Research meeting  held in San Diego, California which focused on prostate cancer. According to the study "Men who had higher levels of melatonin had a 75 percent reduced risk for developing advanced prostate cancer compared with men who had lower melatonin."
 
The article went on to state, "in experimental studies - animal studies and prostate cancer cell lines - it's been shown that melatonin has an inhibiting effect on prostate tumor growth,"
 
 
However, the article also went on to caution that the results are preliminary and that future research needs to be done to establish a cause and effect relationship.

###
 
According to official U.S. estimates, prostate cancer kills about 30,000 Americans annually, with nearly 200,000 new cases each year. Besides skin cancer, it is the most common cancer in American males. Although few sufferers report early symptoms, signs of nascent prostate cancer include difficulties urinating and back pain.
 
###
 
In another related article the University of Maryland Medical Center published an article titled
"Melatonin" In this article the authors went on to say...
 

"Studies show that men with prostate cancer have lower melatonin levels than men without the disease. In test tube studies, melatonin blocks the growth of prostate cancer cells. In one small-scale study, melatonin -- combined with conventional medical treatment -- improved survival rates in 9 out of 14 men with metastatic prostate cancer. Interestingly, since meditation may cause melatonin levels to rise it appears to be a valuable addition to the treatment of prostate cancer. More research is needed before doctors can make recommendations in this area."

When asked to comment on the melatonin articles/studies Life Choice, owner and founder, DrEldon Dahl , ND said " These preliminary studies look promising. We do know that higher levels of melatonin can help strengthen the immune system. It can also help people who have problems sleeping (insomnia)." He continued, "It [melatonin] also helps women with menopause; it helps people better deal with issues revolving around epilepsy, ADHD & autism; and it looks promising [melatonin] when we talk about breast cancer and slowing down the aging process."

Researchers have discovered that more and more students are turning to "smart drugs" to enhance their performance in school. Popular choices include Modafinil, originally developed for the treatment of narcolepsy; and Ritalin, originally developed for the treatment of ADHD. Students are now using these drugs to increase wakefulness in the hopes of improving test scores. Barbara Sahakian of Cambridge's psychiatry department, stated that the growing popularity of using drugs for performance has "enormous implications" and that universities should act on this growing trend. Both the physical implications and psychological implications of pills for performance are scary. Because these prescriptions are still relatively new, their long-term safety has yet to be established; also, as students are taking them without first consulting a physician, the students are endangering themselves, even if they do not have a pre-existing condition. The mindset that a prescription pill can serve as a coping mechanism is also an unhealthy pattern. (Full article here.)

It is very sad how we’ve evolved. Student in desperation for good grades to enter good schools for the slight advantage over other students. Some may call this doping, but I call it reckless. Each drug has at least 200 known side effects and for what? Pressing the mind to do more than it is intended with the capacity we are given? The ease you attain today will cost you tomorrow. Gains made with drugs are short-lived.

Our bodies respond best to natural means. The expression "you are what you eat" is not true--you are what you absorb into your cells. Drugs don’t absorb, the receptor sites do not open. You can trick them to respond, but in doing so you absorb residual effects with side effects. Absorption is providing the correct nutrients in the proper amounts in the manner the cells were created to receive. In other words, absorption is synonymous with natural design; drug design is not nature's design.

For a healthier way to gain a mental edge, try Life Choice products like Tyrosine and DMAE. Here is a student's testimonial about her experience with these products:

My name is Kinga Hegedűs and I’m a student at the University of Szeged in Hungary. I’m studying Biology and my wish is to become a scientist. This is the path I’ve chosen and I know that it won’t be easy. It’s a hard and stressful path. But I have to fight for my dream. In this fight Life Choice products are helping me a lot. As a biology student it is important for me what kind of products I’m using to keep myself fit and calm during exams. I prefer natural products. I chose Life Choice because of the natural origin and the free form of the molecules they offer. I’ve learned and read about these compounds. I know them. I’m happy that we can use nature’s gifts. They are safe, no side effects or dependence. This is what our body needs. I personally use two products: L-Tyrosine and DMAE. When I have to study a lot and the time is short, or on the exam day, when I must be fit, I take DMAE. I know that DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol bitartate) is a precursor to acetyl-choline, our key neurotransmitter, and that means that my brain is working better when I take it. But my biggest problem is stress. Under stress I can’t do anything, I can’t study or remember the stuff I learned and I have a horrible belly-ache. Thanks to Life Choice’s L-Tyrosine it’s a thing of the past. Without these products I can’t imagine how my university years would be. Terrible and more difficult, I think. Sometimes when I learn a lot, I just can’t sleep. I solve this problem with Life Choice’s Melatonin. I know that this product is good for my body too, because it’s a hormone that’s part of the normal human sleep-wake cycle. I’m very thankful to the Life Choice Company for taking care of our health!

Why Take The Risk? Natural Health Products Can Help University Students Improve Their Grades: Without Any Negative Side Effects

Why Take The Risk? Natural Health Products Can Help University Students Improve Their Grades: Without The Negative Side Effects
 

(Calgary, AB) - From Canada and the United States to Australia and the United Kingdom, university students are feeling the stress of academic life. Studying; mid-terms; finals and project deadlines are taking a physical and mental toll on many who attend university.

The pressure to: graduate; to get a degree; to find a job; or to get accepted into medical school, law school; or graduate school has many students turning to prescription stimulants or 'Smart Drugs' to gain a 'competitive edge'

Prescription stimulants such as: Modafinil; Ritalin; Adderall; and Concerta; are finding there ways onto university campuses. Some students are even taking 'drug cocktails'; a combination of stimulants and depressants to control their moods.

Students can readily access or obtain these drugs from friends, family or other students. Others, go online to purchase the drugs either from unknown individuals or drug retailers.


The Risks

When asked about the drug Modafinil, Barbara Sahakian, professor of clinical neuropsychology at Cambridge University, said "there had been an increase in the number of students taking the drug in recent years. A lot of young people are purchasing these drugs over the internet.

It is a very unsafe way to get these drugs because you don't really know what you're getting and you don't know if it's safe for you as an individual. What are the effects of putting a drug into and changing the chemicals in your brain as your brain is developing?”

When asked about the stimulant Modafinil, British Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt was quoted as saying "I'm very concerned. Let's be clear. This is drug abuse. To all those young people we completely understand the pressures of taking exams but you are playing with fire if you take drugs that haven't been prescribed.

"You don't know what the effect will be on your mind and body. It's a very dangerous thing to do and I would strongly encourage students to think again before doing this."

Dr. David Juurlink, a clinical pharmacologist at Sunnybrook and Women’s College Health Sciences Centre in Toronto, tracks and studies prescription drugs such as Adderall was quoted as saying “In the wrong patient and at the wrong dose, it can be quite dangerous,” [Taking a drug without a prescription}. “But the fact is, it is not a difficult drug for a child or young adult to get.”


The Statistics Are Frightening

According to statistics; researches in the United States estimate that as many as 30 percent of students there are abusing Adderall. In Canada some studies suggest that 11 percent of students have, or would consider using the drug.


A Comment From Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND

When asked to comment on these revelations, Life Choice founder and CEO Dr.Eldon Dahl , a trained naturopath said ...

"How sad. We have evolved at such a fast pace, and with the population growth and limited jobs, the only positive future students have today, is good grades in a good school for a slight advantage over other students. Some may call this doping but I call it reckless, each drug has at least 200 known side effects and for what, pressing the mind to do more than it is intended with the capacity we are given.

The thing is you can’t trick nature, you can do the pay as you go plan, but in the end, the gains you make with drugs are short lived. Our bodies respond to nature and natural means, we have all heard the expression you are what you eat, that is not true, in fact you are what you absorb to your cells. Drugs don’t absorb, the receptor sites do not open. You can trick them to respond but in doing so, you absorb residual effects and short lived with side effects.

Absorption is based on providing the correct nutrients, in the proper amounts, in the manner the cells were created to receive. In other words, absorption, is synonymous with design. Drug design is not natures design."

Alzheimer's And Dementia; 40 And 50 Year Olds Are Now Being Diagnosed With The Disease

Alzheimer's And Dementia:
40 and 50 Year Olds Are Now Being Diagnosed WithThe Disease


(Calgary, AB) - When you think of Alzheimer's and Dementia you always think of elderly people, getting the disease; people 65 and over. Not true! A recent story that first appeared on CTV News on January 6, 2014 shows that the disease is now affecting younger people (-65). Men and women in their 40's and 50's are now showing the symptoms.
 
 
In 2009, a report released by the  Alzheimer's Society of Alberta and The Northwest Territories Region stated that 71,000 young Canadians have the disease.

In Australia,  a health report issued by the Australian government estimated that "Younger Onset Dementia" affecting people under the age of 65, in 2011 was approximately 23,900.
 
In the United Kindom, a report issued by their Alzheimer's Society stated that there were more than 17,000 younger people with dementia. However, the report went on to state "this number is likely to be an under-estimate, and the true figure may be up to three times higher. Data on the numbers of people with young-onset dementia are based on referrals to services, but not all those with young-onset dementia seek help in an early stage of the disease."

In the United States a recent report estimated that 200,000 young people have Onset Alzheimer's.

The liquid form makes it perfect to use for highly controlled doses or for those who cannot swallow capsules. It seems fitting that on the heels of our latest Kava product, new Kava research would also come out! We have included the article and a link to the press release below!
Kava May Help Prevent Lung Cancer in Smokers Say University Researchers
(AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 8, 2014) Researchers at the University of Minnesota (UM) and Texas Tech University recently studied the effects of a special preparation of the kava root (Piper methysticum) on lung cancer in mice, and have concluded that the chemically defined extract may have the potential to reduce the risk of lung cancer in humans, according to a press release (appended below) issued today by UM.

“This is highly interesting research and suggests a potential new use for certain preparations made from kava root and rhizome,” said Mark Blumenthal, founder and executive director of the nonprofit American Botanical Council (ABC). “Of course,” he added, “the preliminary results must be confirmed in human clinical trials."

Blumenthal noted that ABC policy on reporting of scientific and clinical research on herbs and their preparations designates that "ABC does not usually cover animal research in its scientific reporting, preferring human clinical trials. However, in this case ABC believes that the potential implications for human health and the herb kava are significant enough, as suggested by this particular animal research, to warrant attention by ABC."

According to Stefan Gafner, Chief Science Officer of ABC, “The fact that the researchers were able to find evidence of the ability of a kava fraction to prevent the formation of tumors in mice, in support of epidemiological data showing a lower incidence of lung cancer in people living on the South Pacific Islands where kava is traditionally used, makes this study very compelling. If confirmed in human clinical studies, the results could have a big impact on human health and may lead to a greater emphasis on prevention rather than cure."

Prof. Bill Gurley, PhD, professor of pharmaceutical sciences at the College of Pharmacy of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock, reviewed the study and commented to ABC, “…the findings are both compelling and certainly merit further research in order to translate them into the clinic. The findings are a breath of fresh air for kava, in particular, and botanical supplements, in general. Recently supplements have suffered quite a bit of negative publicity — some of it deserved, some not — but the kava study from the University of Minnesota emphasizes what good science coupled with quality botanicals can produce."

According to Rick Kingston, PharmD, a clinical professor of pharmacy at the University of Minnesota and president of Regulatory and Scientific Affairs at SafetyCall International in Minneapolis, “This research is truly unprecedented in its potential impact. A 99% cancer prevention efficacy is unheard of with this very sensitive research model and paves the way for future clinical trials to assess human applications. Another fascinating aspect relates to identifying kava components likely responsible for rare cases of liver toxicity associated with kava dietary supplements. Fortunately, the risk of kava liver complications is low, but this will allow development of supplement preparations devoid of [compounds that may cause] adverse liver effects that can be used for both anti-anxiety and wellness applications in the supplement arena.”

Back To The Future With Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND: Stay Healthy This Flu Season


Back To The Future With Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND:
Stay Healthy This Flu Season

(Calgary, AB) On November 24, 2011 The Toronto Star Newspaper published a special report on Natural Products and the Human Immune System titled Immunology: Stay Healthy This Winter

Because of their expertise in this area, Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr.Eldon Dahl ND were both asked to contribute to this special edition.

Dr. Dahl's contribution to this special report, which appears on page 6, was an article titled "Unlock The Treasure Chest of Healthy Living". In this article, Dr. Dahl offers advice to individuals on how to "improve their body's own immune system with the use of natural products."

Because the flu season is now upon us, we thought that it would be a good idea to revisit the article and allow individuals the opportunity to review the many natural suggestions that Dr. Dahl has to offer.
