Centrophenoxine AKA (Lucidril) or (Meclophenoxate) is an anti-aging drug widely used to increase brain energy, since it stimulates the chemical activity of the brain. Much like other nootropics (Piracetam, Aniracetam, and Oxiracetam) Centrophenoxine promotes cognitive brain activity. In particular, uptake of the sugar glucose (which is essential for energy production and keeps the mind sharp) is increased.

Oxygen consumption and carbon dioxide production also increase significantly when centrophenoxine is taken regularly, providing further evidence of its effectiveness. Feel more aware and more alive!

Anxious? Mildly depressed? Stressed out? Rhodiola Rosea Extract is a natural herb that can help regulate mood and help cope with the everyday stresses of life. Rhodiola has been used for thousands of years to help deal with stressful conditions in Siberia.

Traditional folk medicine used R. rosea to increase physical endurance, work productivity, longevity, resistance to high altitude sickness, and to treat fatigue, depression, anemia, impotence, gastrointestinal ailments, infections, and nervous system disorders. In mountain villages of the Republic of Georgia, a bouquet of roots is still given to couples prior to marriage to enhance fertility and assure the birth of healthy children. In Middle Asia, R. rosea tea was the most effective treatment for cold and flu during severe Asian winters. Mongolian doctors prescribed it for tuberculosis and cancer. For centuries, only family members knew where to harvest the wild “golden roots” and the methods of extraction. Siberians secretly transported the herb down ancient trails to the Caucasian Mountains where it was traded for Georgian wines, fruits, garlic, and honey. Chinese emperors sent expeditions to Siberia to bring back the “golden root” for medicinal preparations.

During another study, they found that oxiracetam had better therapeutic results than piracetam on both a psychosomatic and neurologic symptoms. Oxiracetam also seemed to decease platelet aggregation.

Deal of the Day: Glucosamine & Chondroitin

CN-Glucosamine-and-Chondroitin-240Caps
Glucosamine & Chondroitin
240 Caps
from Colorado Nutrition
(Retail: $49.95)
Our Price: $12.76

Both Glucosamine and Chondroitin occur naturally in the body and act as building blocks for the functioning of healthy cartilage. Glucosamine and Chondroitin have been studied and have been found to be critical nutrients that assist in supporting flexibility, comfort and range of motion.

Glucosamine: Glucosamine is one of the major components involved with the formation of cartilage (critical lubricants and shock absorbers necessary to maintain and restore healthy joint performance). Glucosamine facilitates the renewal of cartilage and helps keep cartilage lubricated to maintain its naturally slippery texture. These mechanisms of action improve the structure of joints.

Chondroitin: Chondroitin supports existing cartilage by promoting the quality of the synovial fluid — it attracts fluid to act as a spongy shock absorber for the joints. It works together with Glucosamine to promote the healthy flow of water and nutrients into cartilage producing cells.

When taken together, Glucosamine and Chondroitin work naturally with your body to promote healthy, flexible joints. This process of revitalizing healthy joints takes time and depends on your specific individual nutritional requirements. With daily continued use, you should look forward to experiencing the benefits of taking Glucosamine and Chondroitin.

Twitter Struggles with Denial of Service Attack

twitter-logo
As our tweeps have noticed, Twitter and Hootsuite and Tweetdeck… etc was knocked over by a technical assault yesterday morning and they’re still having issues.

Check out Twitter Status for the latest update.

Deal of the Day Still Running Despite Annoyances From Botnet.
How did this happen? Hackers. Yes, honest-to-goodness hackers. Using an army of PC’s (a botnet) commandeered using virus software the hacker can use these zombie PCs to send phony service requests to a server until it just shuts down. No one has been able to determine what the motive is behind this attack, whether it’s some punk showing off or something more sinister. From Telegraph.co.uk: “During last year’s conflict between Georgia and Russia, denial of service attacks were carried out against high-profile websites in both countries, although the perpetrators were never identified.” As Twitter is still a fairly new company, it was particularly vulnerable to such an attack that companies like Facebook and Google weather from time to time.

Since yesterday Twitter has instituted some security measures, but many of their users (American Nutrition, for example) are left unable to Tweet. We are still able to run our Deals of the Day, however, through Facebook and our blog. Hopefully Twitter can get this straightened out, best of luck to them. Let this also serve as a reminder to PC users to keep their antivirus software up to date!

L-Carnitine Fumarate is an amino acid(like) nutrient that is found naturally in the body and in red meat. It plays a major role in the process of burning fat for energy. This nutrient is a great weight loss aid as it can help to increase muscle strength, energy and increase fat burning efficiency. L-Carnitine can also help you achieve more energy, increase immune function, enhance and protect your mental faculties, and lower your cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

L-Carnitine Fumarate is the most stable and bio-available carnitine salt. Contains 58.5% of active principle. Because fumarate is naturally present in the Krebs cycle it optimizes the action of L-carnitine. Recent studies have shown that fumaric acid increases energy through the anaplerotic effect and is beneficial for cardiac conditions.

When L-Carnitine Fumarate is taken in supplemental form, it can increase energy, burn fat, improve the functioning of the heart and liver (and studies suggest, even increase sperm quality!) Supplementation of this essential nutrient is a good idea for anyone looking to lose weight and improve muscle tone and strength.
