********www.youtube****/watch?v=3z3TcTO79yE In this video I will discuss What is Alpha Lipoic Acid Alpha Lipoic Acid is also known as Lipoic Acid or Thioctic Acid Deficiency was first identified in 1955 When high doses (25-50mg/day) were used intravenously to revive patients in hepatic coma Since then, the use of Lipoic Acid has increased steadily in the medical field and As an off-label supplement Lipoic Acid is essential for every cell in the body In order for it to produce energy for our bodily functions Lipoic Acid has biochemical properties similar to a B-vitamin and Is considered a conditionally essential nutrient It lost vitamin status after it was discovered that the body can biosynthesize it The body makes Lipoic Acid from a fatty acid combined with an amino acid (Cysteine) Lipoic Acid can be minimally found in certain foods such as Red meats, organ meats, spinach, broccoli, potatoes, carrots, and yeast Bioavailability of LA from food is very low The amount found is also very low -- 10 tons of liver residue yielded 30mg of Lipoic Acid As such LA is presently chemically synthesized Due to the fact that supplemental Lipoic Acid is fat and water soluble, It is able to pass through the walls of nerve cells and Protect against potentially harmful substances Lipoic Acid is a powerful endogenously synthesized antioxidant And it also regenerates other antioxidants Low levels of Lipoic Acid have been correlated with a variety of diseases and Biosynthesis declines with age This has led to an increasing use of Lipoic Acid supplements LA has a wide range of effects throughout the human body and One of the biggest targets for Lipoic Acid therapy research is In the management of diabetes and associated diabetic neuropathies Diabetes is associated with accelerated aging and The degenerative diseases that accompany it Lipoic Acid has also been used to prevent organ dysfunctions Including the kidneys, pancreas and liver To treat or prevent cardiovascular disease To accelerate chronic wound healing To prevent or slow down the progression of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease To reduce or prevent age-related cognitive dysfunctions and To reduce inflammation Generally speaking, Supplemental Lipoic Acid is beneficial for the Treatment of all chronic diseases associated with oxidative stress In this video you have learned What is Alpha Lipoic Acid Lipoic Acid is a part of my essential nutritional supplement stack.

********www.youtube****/watch?v=5jIN7xSsYNo In this video I will discuss Coffee, Heart Disease and Cardiovascular Health Coffee contains diterpenes These are only present in unfiltered coffee and They appear to increase the risk of coronary heart disease However, coffee also contains antioxidants This may be one of the reasons why some studies find A lower risk of coronary heart disease among moderate coffee drinkers Some studies show that consuming more than 4 cups of coffee a day Increases inflammation markers associated with heart disease In contrast, A 20 year study finished in 2006 on 128.000 coffee drinkers showed no such relationship This Harvard study concluded that Coffee consumption (by itself) does not increases the risk of coronary heart disease It did show however that high coffee intake is more prevalent in Individuals with other heart disease risk factors Such as: smoking, alcohol consumption and lack of physical exercise What this means is: unhealthy people tend to drink more coffee Coffee stimulates the heart, blood circulation and the respiratory system It thus supports the increases in energy demands which it itself generates But when this effect is continuous it leads to exhaustion Stimulating the heart and raising blood pressure is bad if you have a heart condition or If you are at risk of heart disease This is why coffee is not recommended for people with cardiovascular problems In conclusion, Coffee tends to be better tolerated by healthy people and May be beneficial when consumed in moderation However, High coffee intake is more likely in unhealthy individuals Individuals which already have underlying problems Therefore, coffee should be considered a risk to people who have developed or Are at risk of cardiovascular (and also digestive) diseases In this video we have discussed Coffee, Heart Disease and Cardiovascular Health If you want to discover things about Coffee which aren't included in this video series then go to: DamianAlexander****/CoffeePDF If you would like to learn more about critical nutritional supplements, life extension and disease prevention then subscribe to my youtube channel at: *******www.youtube****/user/DamianAlexandersVids The easiest and shortest way to: *Double physical and mental energy *Strengthen immunity *Restore health, visit: *******HowToChangeYourOwnBatteries**** *******HowToChangeYourOwnBatteries****/go/Coffee

********www.youtube****/watch?v=si5w4rCa0rM In this video I will discuss Coffee Benefits Coffee increases cognitive performance Especially when you are rested When you are tired coffee is used to alleviate mental and physical fatigue Coffee is also used to increase physical performance Some athletes take caffeine pills before a game in order to give their best on the field Another benefit of coffee is to increase the metabolic rate and thermogenesis; and Thus aid in fat loss Coffee drinkers are reported to have a lower risk of developing Alzheimer's and Parkinson's This correlation has been criticized as having more to do with poverty Than the benefits of coffee Those who can afford coffee can afford higher quality foods and better healthcare And thus reduce their risk of these diseases independent of coffee usage Some studies have shown protective benefits to the liver A reduction of gallstone disease progression has also been noted One interesting finding is coffee can induce the suicide of cancerous cells It is thus believed to aid both in cancer prevention and treatment Some specific examples are a reduced risk of oral, esophageal, Pharyngeal, breast and prostate cancer in moderate coffee drinkers Coffee has also been shown to increase the effectiveness of pain killers and Can be used as migraine and headache medication A 2004 study concluded that coffee consumption is associated with significant increases in inflammation This is a detrimental effect on the cardiovascular system While some studies show coffee is negative for the cardiovascular system, Others find it is protective The cutoff point seems to be around 4 cups a day In other words, If you drink more than 4 cups a day then coffee is negative, but If you drink 4 or less, then coffee is protective of the cardiovascular system Again, there is wide variation in the human response to coffee My opinion is coffee use needs to be tailored based on the individual This means actually paying attention to your usage pattern, quantity And how it affects you I would advise you actually reexamine your relationship with coffee Many people have a midday energy crash which they fight off with coffee This energy crash is actually a natural renewal time Fighting this midday renewal time is supremely exhausting And taxing to the body The solution is to simply lay down with your eyes closed for half an hour This will provide huge health benefits in the long run And you will find you no longer need coffee in the afternoons In this video we have discussed Coffee Benefits and Some of its potential negatives If you want to discover things about Coffee which aren't included in this video series then go to: *******DamianAlexander****/CoffeePDF If you would like to learn more about critical nutritional supplements, life extension and disease prevention then subscribe to my youtube channel at: *******www.youtube****/user/DamianAlexandersVids The easiest and shortest way to: *Double physical and mental energy *Strengthen immunity *Restore health, visit: *******HowToChangeYourOwnBatteries****

********www.youtube****/watch?v=xgP_VQEh3BQ In this video I will discuss How does Coffee work After you ingest coffee, 99% of caffeine is absorbed by Your intestinal system in 15 to 45 minutes From here, caffeine reaches your liver where it is metabolized Most caffeine is turned into paraxanthine Paraxanthine is very similar to adenosine This similarity means it can fit into adenosine receptors - without stimulating those receptors Paraxanthine thus blocks the effects of adenosine on brain receptors The general effect of adenosine is to inhibit neural activity And here lies the problem with caffeine use Adenosine is a building block of ATP ATP is broken down for energy production And adenosine is thrown out of the neurons Once outside the neurons, adenosine can stimulate the fatigue response Stimulating the fatigue response allows neurons to rest and make more ATP When you block the action of adenosine with paraxanthine You disrupt the rest cycle of neurons This leads to neurons being overworked and eventually crashing This is why habitual coffee use inevitably leads to exhaustion On top of this, there is no adaptation to caffeine It keeps working Coffee contains other active chemicals besides caffeine Among them are antioxidants These antioxidants are hypothesized to be the reason why Some studies have found cardiovascular benefits associated with coffee use Coffee also contains some compounds called Diterpenes Diterpenes appear to increase risk of coronary heart disease Luckily, Diterpenes can be eliminated through simple paper filtration Always filter your coffee to protect yourself from these compounds Other compounds in coffee are responsible for the release of stress hormones Stress hormones are deleterious in high quantities or for extended periods of time Remember when I told you about the Gauss Curve Coffee is one of those compounds Which sits towards the middle It has many goods, but also bads, Generally speaking, the more unhealthy you are, the more harm coffee does to you The healthier you are the fewer the negative effects you experience from coffee This is why I believe the key to coffee use is moderation A simple guideline is to drink 4 or less cups of cofee per day and also Avoid concentrated forms of coffee (which have far more caffeine) In this video you have learned How does Coffee work and A little bit about how to protect yourself from the negatives of coffee use If you want to discover things about Coffee which aren't included in this video series then go to: *******DamianAlexander****/CoffeePDF If you would like to learn more about critical nutritional supplements, life extension and disease prevention then subscribe to my youtube channel at: *******www.youtube****/user/DamianAlexandersVids The easiest and shortest way to: *Double physical and mental energy *Strengthen immunity *Restore health, visit: *******HowToChangeYourOwnBatteries****

********www.youtube****/watch?v=Q3vd9CZDBdY In this video I will discuss What does Coffee do First, I need to point out there is wide variation in how people react to coffee But the cellular effects are mainly the same Coffee contains multiple active ingredients Among them is caffeine The main action of caffeine is to block adenosine receptors in the brain In other words, Caffeine inserts itself in places where adenosine should insert itself With long periods of wakefulness Adenosine accumulates in neurons as a result of ATP breakdown Adenosine from inside the neurons is transported across cell membranes into the extracellular space This increases levels of adenosine On the surface of all cells you have receptors Cell receptors are just like locks Caffeine competes with adenosine in trying to occupy the keyholes of these locks But caffeine is a different sort of key from adenosine Because of this caffeine increases brain metabolism By increasing brain metabolism it reduces The feelings of drowsiness, brain fog and fatigue It also stimulates neurons into passing messages faster The problem is: this doesn't actually give you energy What it does is mask tiredness So you are still tired, you just don't feel it Because you don't feel tiredness you keep pressing forward In order to keep pressing forward your body taps into its energy reserves -- Which are finite and exhaustible This is how caffeine eventually causes exhaustion It gets your body to a point where there is nothing left to give In a nutshell, Caffeine masks the state of energy depletion of brain cells And disrupts the regenerating cycle of ATP Interestingly, Alcohol exerts many of its effects by modifying adenosine receptor activity The approach I favor is to give your body so much of what it already wants that It can afford to give you a lot of energy You don't have to force it Back to what does coffee do Coffee stimulates the heart, blood circulation and the respiratory system It thus supports the increase in energy demands Again, when this effect is continuous it leads to exhaustion Stimulating the heart and raising blood pressure is bad if you have a heart condition This is why coffee is not recommended for people with cardiovascular problems Because it raises the blood pressure throughout the day and night Coffee interferes with the quality of sleep Many people drink coffee hours before bedtime and say it "It doesn't disturb my sleep in any way" But even if you don't feel it, the quality of your sleep is decreased There is no adaptation to the effects of coffee So even if you've been drinking it for 50 years, It still disturbs your sleep Coffee, but not caffeine, increases uric acid excretion This is a good thing for people with gout A very painful and debilitating condition On the negative side, coffee increases levels of stress hormones For example, epinephrine is raised throughout the day and night This not only interferes with sleep, But it increases your stress response In other words, the same stimulus is perceived as more stressful This has further implications Emotional stress and increasing stress hormones activates the flight or fight response This chemically communicates to your body you are in a life or death situation And this changes the priorities of your body It focuses on the immediate, as opposed to the long term This means systems such as digestion, immunity And detoxification will be depressed This is because these systems are only useful if You are going to be alive tomorrow Depressing these systems in the long run leads to a body Which has nothing left to give -- it is drained, exhausted, Worn out and ready to be thrown out But coffee is not completely bad It can allow healthy individuals to train at the edge of their abilities It can be used to stay awake in situations where falling asleep can actually kill you And there is even research that shows it can increase intelligence -- when combined with proper training of course In this video we have discussed What does Coffee do Both in terms of positives and negatives If you want to discover things about Coffee which aren't included in this video series then go to: *******DamianAlexander****/CoffeePDF If you would like to learn more about critical nutritional supplements, life extension and disease prevention then subscribe to my youtube channel at: *******www.youtube****/user/DamianAlexandersVids The easiest and shortest way to: *Double physical and mental energy *Strengthen immunity *Restore health, visit: *******HowToChangeYourOwnBatteries****

*******www.youtube****/watch?v=PtqbrxB_S_4 In this video I will discuss Modafinil Synergy and Interactions Synergy is the joint action of two or more agents that Produces a combined effect greater than the sum of their individual effects Modafinil Synergy: Modafinil is synergistic with Yohimbe Yohimbine  a stimulant and aphrodisiac from the plant Yohimbe  Also enhances norepinephrine activity, but you should be careful because This combination can cause a dangerous increase in heart rate and blood pressure Modafinil is also synergistic with coffee and caffeine, but the same warning applies Interactions of Modafinil: Birth control pills have decreased effectiveness when combined with Modafinil The mechanism is that Modafinil upregulates (increases the quantity) of an enzyme Which breaks down the contraceptive hormones Thus, higher doses of birth control pills may be needed 400mg/day of Modafinil for a month significantly reduced levels of estradiol and Norgestimate in a study of 16 women Modafinil also interacts with Opiates (including Methadone) The action of these drugs can be substantially shortened Concomitant use of opiates and Modafinil results in the formers decreased effectiveness If you suffer from epilepsy, or serious hepatic or renal disorders, Modafinil can be contraindicated to you Another thing to remember is that in some countries Modafinil is considered a doping agent and a prohibited stimulant Long-term use has also been associated with instances of elevated liver enzymes Thus, if you plan to use Modafinil for an extended period of time, You should have your liver function tested to establish a baseline, And then retest after 3 months and again every 6 months thereafter to spot changes If abnormalities appear, reducing the dose or stopping the drug should permit a return to normal One last but very important thing Combining Modafinil with Alcohol is a very bad idea At least 24 hours should pass between your last Modafinil dose and Alcohol use In most situations, I would advise against using Modafinil But I believe many will try it anyway so you might as well be correctly informed In this video we have discussed Modafinil Synergy and Interactions If you want to discover things about Modafinil which arent included in this video series then go to: *******DamianAlexander****/ModafinilPDF If you would like to learn more about critical nutritional supplements, life extension and disease prevention then subscribe to my youtube channel at: *******www.youtube****/user/DamianAlexandersVids The easiest and shortest way to: *Double physical and mental energy *Strengthen immunity *Restore health, visit: *******HowToChangeYourOwnBatteries**** *******www.howtochangeyourownbatteries****/go/Modafinil

*******www.youtube****/watch?v=enFZcHDmpTI In this video I will discuss How to use Modafinil The key to Modafinil use is: 1) Use the lowest effective dose and 2) Use it with precise regularity The general instructions on the package are: "Take one 50-200mg dose by mouth with or without food" "If you miss a dose, then skip it" And then things are left at that I don't agree with this approach and I will give you a more specific protocol "Doses over 500mg/day may cause euphoria, slight motor excitation and insomnia" Again, I find this unacceptable Remember: Modafinil has addiction potential In terms of dosage, I would never go over 200mg of Modafinil per day And I would generally keep it at either 1x 100mg/day dosage in the morning OR 2x doses of 50mg at an 8hour interval (for a total of 100mg/day of Modafinil) Before you even think of using Modafinil You should memorize the following information: Oral administration of Modafinil produces effects for 5-10 hours; Time to onset: 20-60 mins Coming up: 10-30 mins Plateau: 3.5-5 hours Coming down: 1-3 hrs After effects: 2-6 hours Take Modafinil in the morning unless otherwise directed by your doctor If you miss a dose of Modafinil, then I strongly advise you skip it And go back to your regular dosing schedule tomorrow DO NOT take 2 doses at once If you are elderly use extra caution because you may be more sensitive to its effects Here is the best (general) dosing schedule to use Take 50mg of Modafinil as soon as you wake up and wait 30minutes before eating After exactly 8 hours, take another 50mgs of Modafinil � again, on an empty stomach If you miss a dose, skip it Use Modafinil at EXACTLY the same time each day Avoid combining Modafinil with other medications - Especially psychiatric and cardiovascular drugs These guidelines will help you avoid problems If you are going to purchase Modafinil online Have a look at some of the sites I have screened at DamianAlexander****/Modafinil In most situations, I would advise against using Modafinil But I believe many will try it anyway so you might as well be correctly informed In this video you have learned How to use Modafinil If you want to discover things about Modafinil which aren�t included in this video series then go to: *******DamianAlexander****/ModafinilPDF If you would like to learn more about critical nutritional supplements, life extension and disease prevention then subscribe to my youtube channel at: *******www.youtube****/user/DamianAlexandersVids The easiest and shortest way to: *Double physical and mental energy *Strengthen immunity *Restore health, visit: *******HowToChangeYourOwnBatteries**** *******www.howtochangeyourownbatteries****/go/Modafinil

*******www.youtube****/watch?v=u7rmNrydlls In this video I will discus What is Modafinil used for Modafinil is used in the treatment of narcolepsy, cataplexy, Obstructive sleep apnea, shift work sleep disorder, idiopathic hypersomnia and Other disorders characterized by hypersomnia or excessive sleepiness Modafinil is extensively used off-label for: Sleep suppression, combating sleep unrelated general fatigue (tired with enough sleep), Treating ADHD & ADD, as an aid to antidepressants, for increased energy, And also to improve cognitive functions like concentration, mental endurance and memory Modafinil is also used off-label for many other situations, including Opiate and cocaine addiction, Parkinson's Disease or schizophrenia, But, these uses are for the most part unsubstantiated In most situations, I would advise against using Modafinil But I believe many will try it anyway so you might as well have an idea of what to expect Modafinil is best known under the trade name of Provigil® It has become accepted as the leading product for the treatment of narcolepsy, Sleeping in the daytime, cataplexy and a few other disorders involving the sleep-wake cycle But many have found it useful for helping them undertake intellectual work The nature of the stimulation induced by Modafinil Is distinctly different from that produced by other stimulants Being characterized by a particularly cerebral quality The most useful quality of Modafinil relates to mental endurance combined with A stable level of attention and a calming of the emotional system Simply put, you undertake a task and keep working on it until it is done Hours may pass and you retain the ability to focus The effect is NOT motivational, but It can make it easier to do tasks that you don't feel like doing and Know that you should be doing It gives the: �I'll just sit down and do it anyway� feeling If taken with a particular purpose in mind Modafinil increases the stick-with-it ability This has made Modafinil very attractive to students and others who Regularly and vigorously undertake intellectual work It is quite easy to fall asleep after a dose of Modafinil In addition, Modafinil does not seem to produce any post dose exhaustion It continues to work when taken consecutively for a number of days In fact, it seems to work even better the more you use it I am referring here to consistency of use, NOT dosage For Modafinil less is more, so keep the dosage as low as you can From what I've experienced, When completely ceasing the use of Modafinil you may sleep much longer than normal And it may produce some permanent changes in brain structure Similarly to how coffee increases the number of adenosine receptors This may be one of the pathways of Modafinil's addictive potential To minimize problems with the use of Modafinil - problems which clearly do exist It is critical to keep the dosage low and the pattern of use consistent More information can be found in the video: �How to use Modafinil� In closing, I would advise against using Modafinil In this video we have discussed What is Modafinil used for and A little bit about the subjective experience of its use If you want to discover things about Modafinil which aren't included in this video series then go to: *******DamianAlexander****/ModafinilPDF If you would like to learn more about critical nutritional supplements, life extension and disease prevention then subscribe to my youtube channel at: *******www.youtube****/user/DamianAlexandersVids The easiest and shortest way to: *Double physical and mental energy *Strengthen immunity *Restore health, visit: *******HowToChangeYourOwnBatteries****

*******www.youtube****/watch?v=Gvww68q7caE In this video I will discuss How does Modafinil work Currently, Modafinil is believed to work by Increasing the sensitivity of the brain to excitatory neurotransmitters Specifically noradrenaline-which is also known as norepinephrine The effects of noradrenaline on the CNS (central nervous system) include Increased attention, memory, learning and cerebral plasticity Noradrenaline stimulates the sympathetic branch of the nervous system (The accelerator pedal of the CNS) Noradrenaline increases blood glucose, mobilizes fatty acids from fat stores, Increases heart rate, increases blood pressure and inhibits digestive processes These effects lead to increased energy levels While you would expect this to show more cardiovascular system side-effects This does not happen in practice Modafinil interacts with a large number of neurotransmitter systems Yet it rarely interferes with other chemical balances in the body And this is perhaps why it has a lower risk -and number- of potential side effects Modafinil also works by restricting the parts of your brain that make you sluggish or sleepy It does this by decreasing the sensitivity to inhibitory neurotransmitters like GABA Modafinil is considered superior to conventional stimulants Because it doesn't affect heart rate, blood pressure And it does not raise anxiety, agitation or promote insomnia Modafinil is believed to lack the side effects of classic stimulants (amphetamins) Due to the fact that it also influences histamine levels In the brain, histamine lowers susceptibility to convulsion, drug sensitization, Denervation supersensitivity, ischemic lesions and stress Histamine is also involved in sleep regulation And this is why Modafinil users can sleep if they want to Modafinil is the main metabolized element from Adrafinil And though both drugs have the same desired result, Adrafinil requires a larger dose for an equal effective strength Adrafinil also targets alpha-1 brain receptors - making them more responsive to noradrenaline But it is not as specific or potent as Modafinil Modafinil is considered an improved version of Adrafinil, but both are still in use Modafinil was initially developed as a treatment for narcolepsy, but Has been found useful for other situations as well - many are off-label Modafinil is considered superior to amphetamine or pemoline The most widely used drugs to treat narcolepsy, hypersomnia and cataplexy Because it has less cardiovascular side effects, less interference with sleep, Fewer psychiatric disturbances and lower addiction potential In summary, Modafinil operates by changing the sensitivity of receptors in the brain to hormones and neurotransmitters By improving the sensitivity to the neurotransmitter norepinephrine, It serves to increase attention and promote wakefulness But the effects of Modafinil project to many different parts of the brain Its mechanism of action is still being clarified and this is why A lot of care must be taken if you will experiment with Modafinil In most situations, I would advise against using Modafinil But I believe many will try it anyway so you might as well be correctly informed In this video you have learned How does Modafinil work If you want to discover things about Modafinil which aren't included in this video series then go to: *******DamianAlexander****/ModafinilPDF If you would like to learn more about critical nutritional supplements, life extension and disease prevention then subscribe to my youtube channel at: *******www.youtube****/user/DamianAlexandersVids The easiest and shortest way to: *Double physical and mental energy *Strengthen immunity *Restore health, visit: *******HowToChangeYourOwnBatteries**** *******www.howtochangeyourownbatteries****/go/Modafinil

*******www.youtube****/watch?v=Kyfx5im4Gfg In this video I will discuss What does Modafinil do In short, Modafinil changes the way the brain reacts to various hormones Modafinil is considered superior to conventional stimulants Because it doesn't affect heart rate, blood pressure And it does not raise anxiety, agitation or promote insomnia Modafinil is believed to lack the side effects of classic stimulants like amphetamins Due to the fact that it also influences histamine levels Modafinil increases histamine release in the hypothalamus  In the brain, histamine lowers susceptibility to convulsion, drug sensitization, Denervation supersensitivity, ischemic lesions and stress Histamine is also involved in sleep regulation And this is why Modafinil users can sleep if they want to  Insomnia is a frequent side effect of amphetamines Not all the effects of histamine are positive Histamine triggers the inflammatory response because It is involved in the local immune response Modafinil is a highly selective agonist of brain alpha-1 adrenergic receptors This means it increases sensitivity to norepinephrine (or noradrenaline ) In other words, The same quantity of norepinephrine will have a greater effect when Modafinil is used GABA is the main inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain Modafinil inhibits the release of GABA, but This normally happens with higher than normal doses Modafinil also increases dopamine release in the brain And affects physiological function in the gut Modafinil produces an appetite reducing/ weight loss effect  Via action on the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) A simplified way to think of the SNS is to view it as the bodies accelerator pedal Modafinil may be very useful for some individuals and a health risk for others Since everyone's brain chemistry is slightly different Reactions with Modafinil can vary greatly among individuals If you wish to try Modafinil you need to start with small doses and Carefully monitor your reactions Long term use of Modafinil - or the earlier version Adrafinil - Should be combined with blood tests and assessment of liver enzymes In summary, Modafinil operates by changing the sensitivity of receptors in the brain to hormones and neurotransmitters By improving the sensitivity to the neurotransmitter norepinephrine, It serves to increase attention and promote wakefulness Yet Modafinil rarely interferes with other chemical balances And this is perhaps why it has a lower risk -and number- of potential side effects In most situations, I would advise against using Modafinil But I believe many will try it anyway so you might as well have an idea of what to expect In this video you have learned What does Modafinil do If you want to discover things about Modafinil which arent included in this video series then go to: *******DamianAlexander****/ModafinilPDF If you would like to learn more about critical nutritional supplements, life extension and disease prevention then subscribe to my youtube channel at: *******www.youtube****/user/DamianAlexandersVids The easiest and shortest way to: *Double physical and mental energy *Strengthen immunity *Restore health, visit: *******HowToChangeYourOwnBatteries**** *******www.howtochangeyourownbatteries****/go/Modafinil

*******www.youtube****/watch?v=PVbRRNLnokY In this video I will discuss Piracetam and Aging Piracetam is used for improving mental performance in "aging, non-deteriorated individuals" In middle aged and older individuals, Who do not yet suffer any specific neural malady or major mental impairment, It can slow down or postpone entropic brain aging and Even reverse some mild neural/mental decline Have you ever watched an out-of-practice musician? Once nimble fingers skip familiar notes A common expression is to say he grew �rusty� That is actually not so far from the truth Rust, what we see on a bicycle left in the rain, is an example of oxidation Oxidation occurs when molecules are ripped apart by reacting with oxygen In the case of rust, it's the reaction of iron with oxygen Oxidation occurs in the body, too, and in the brain Piracetam reduces oxidative stress and It protects the brain from neurological toxins If using Piracetam consistently the same person at age 50 might be smarter, Have better memory, quicker reflexes and greater vigilance and alertness than when they were 40 The best results come from: Higher dosages, Synergizing Piracetam with brain growth and repair factors And, very importantly, consistency of use For neuroprotective effects -preventing problems before they arise- A good dosage is 2400mg/day in 3 doses with water Remember: take Piracetam on an empty stomach whenever possible The upper range daily dosage of Piracetam is 24 grams per day Piracetam is not metabolized to any other substance This means no extra work or burden is placed on the liver- And it is completely excreted via urine Piracetam is useful both for the chronic -and accumulating- daily damage to the brain, But also for acute damage Stroke victims might avoid paralysis and death if given drugs like Piracetam after entering the hospital Even in patients who suffered stroke-induced brain damage years ago, There is evidence that Piracetam helps improve the functioning of these damaged people Piracetam has restored various functions (use of limbs, speech, EEG, state of consciousness) In people suffering from acute or chronic cerebral ischemia (decreased brain blood flow) Piracetam has improved alertness, cooperation, socialization, and IQ In elderly psychiatric patients suffering from senile involution (dementia, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's) Piracetam is useful as a long-term treatment for clotting, coagulation, And vasospastic disorders such as Raynaud's disease and deep-vein thrombosis One last tip: Remember that Piracetam potency is increased when taken with lecithin, choline, DMAE or other acetylcholine precursors There are also: Hydergine, fish oil and many other supplements which can increase The effectiveness of Piracetam for both treatment and cognitive enhancement In summary, Piracetam is very useful for the prevention and treatment of neurodegeneration and Some forms of vascular disease Additionally it is completely non-toxic This is why Piracetam is a very important agent for any worthwhile AntiAging Therapy In this video we have discussed Piracetam and Aging If you want to learn more useful things about Piracetam then go to: *******DamianAlexander****/PiracetamPDF If you would like to learn more about critical nutritional supplements, life extension and disease prevention then subscribe to my youtube channel at: *******www.youtube****/user/DamianAlexandersVids The easiest and shortest way to: *Double physical and mental energy *Strengthen immunity *Restore health, visit: *******HowToChangeYourOwnBatteries**** *******www.howtochangeyourownbatteries****/go/Piracetam

*******www.youtube****/watch?v=Q3OVptn6OYA In this video I will discuss Piracetam, Memory and Boosting Intelligence Piracetam increases the sensitivity of receptors in the brain Involved in memory and learning processes, It increases blood flow, oxygen usage and glucose metabolic rate in the brain and It protects brain tissue from a broad range of toxins and Other physical and chemical insults Via these effects Piracetam improves brain function Piracetam, and racetams in general, Influence neuronal and vascular functions without acting as a sedative or stimulant They have been found to increase blood flow and oxygen consumption in parts of the brain, But this is believed to be a side effect of increased brain activity, not a primary effect or mechanism of action Piracetam improves memory, concentration, information processing ability, Spatial learning, motor mechanisms, creativity and intelligence Piracetam can harmonize and synchronize the two hemispheres of the brain, Promote youthful neurologic function, increase brain metabolism and intercellular communication One very interesting beneficial effect of Piracetam is on Corpus Callosum function The Corpus Callosum enables the communication between The logical side of the brain(left) and the creative side of the brain(right) Improving its function allows the user to draw on greater brain potential But that's not all, Because it improves the ability of brain cells to produce energy, Piracetam allows users to work harder and longer Boosting intelligence is a matter of putting in the work required to process, Store and accumulate information and this is how Piracetam boosts intelligence Just taking Piracetam and sitting around will not make you smarter But using it to extend the time you spend learning does Piracetam works to strengthen brain function Among the functions the brain performs are processing information, Forming and storing memories and retrieving information from memory (recall) Memory and learning go hand in hand When you learn you both access your memory to make sense of what you are learning And also depositing new information in the memory banks Via these effects on memory, Learning and mental endurance Piracetam can indeed boost intelligence But only if the user is motivated to put in the work Piracetam gives the ability, But not the desire to undertake sustained intellectual work In summary, Piracetam is one of the most popular supplements that is used to increase intelligence, Information processing ability, concentration, memory, and creativity It has been shown to harmonize and synchronize the right and left hemispheres of the brain Allowing them to more effectively work together It is useful for stimulating the formation of memories and anchoring information within the brain In this video we have discussed Piracetam, Memory and Boosting Intelligence If you want to learn more useful things about Piracetam then go to: *******DamianAlexander****/PiracetamPDF If you would like to learn more about critical nutritional supplements, life extension and disease prevention then subscribe to my youtube channel at: *******www.youtube****/user/DamianAlexandersVids The easiest and shortest way to: *Double physical and mental energy *Strengthen immunity *Restore health, visit: *******HowToChangeYourOwnBatteries**** *******www.howtochangeyourownbatteries****/go/Piracetam

*******www.youtube****/watch?v=WAUBHH2_1eA In this video I will discuss Piracetam, Parkinsons and Alzheimers Parkinsons and Alzheimers are neurodegenerative diseases that Typically result from chronic damage to specific regions in the brain Chronic means damage accumulates over time and Then reaches a critical mass where symptoms become obvious Healing this type of damage is slow and difficult, Especially if the brain has sustained significant damage, But it is possible Long-term administration of high doses of Piracetam can slow the progression Of cognitive deterioration in patients with AD, PD or other types of neurological damage However, the more advanced the damage, the less can be done This is because neurons don't divide and Unless you can stimulate the growth of new neurons, There is no way to repair the damage That being said, The particular usefulness of Piracetam is that It can protect the brain from additional damage and Thus allow it the chance to heal to the extent that it can The real value of Piracetam in the case of brain disease is Shielding the brain from a broad range of toxins Because Piracetam has a short-half life this shield needs to be raised multiple times throughout the day The way to help patients with such diseases is not to limit them only to Piracetam (as is done in clinical trials), But to combine this neuroprotector with brain growth factors These brain growth factors will allow the brain to repair the damage while limiting new damage Piracetam should be used together with supplements such as: Choline, lecithin, DMAE, fish oil, Acetyl-L-Carnitine, CoQ10, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Hydergine and others And this is how the brain has the best chance to experience healing Even then this might not be enough and you would need to resort to steroid hormones, But this is the way to start In summary, Piracetam is not effective at directly repairing the brain damage responsible for the clinical symptoms of Parkinsons and Alzheimers It is however very effective at protecting the brain from more trauma If consistently used at high doses and multiple times throughout the day then It can reverse some clinical symptoms of these diseases However, the best way to do it is to combine Piracetam with brain trophic factors In this video we have discussed Piracetam, Parkinsons and Alzheimers If you want to learn more useful things about Piracetam then go to: *******DamianAlexander****/PiracetamPDF If you would like to learn more about critical nutritional supplements, life extension and disease prevention then subscribe to my youtube channel at: *******www.youtube****/user/DamianAlexandersVids The easiest and shortest way to: *Double physical and mental energy *Strengthen immunity *Restore health, visit: *******HowToChangeYourOwnBatteries**** *******www.howtochangeyourownbatteries****/go/Piracetam

*******www.youtube****/watch?v=5Egz-2iPPJc In this video I will discuss What is Piracetam Piracetam is a derivative of the amino acid GABA and a member of the racetams It is a nootropic substance Nootropics are drugs, supplements, nutraceuticals, and functional foods That are memory, cognitive, and intelligence enhancers Piracetam is a cognitive enhancer which improves memory, concentration, Information processing ability, spatial learning, motor mechanisms, creativity and intelligence It has been shown to harmonize and synchronize the two hemispheres of the brain, Promote youthful neurologic function, increase brain metabolism and intercellular communication Piracetam was first synthesized in 1964 by Dr. Corneliu E. Giurgea and his team At the Belgian pharmaceutical company UCB They discovered the drugs ability to improve overall mental functioning In the 1970s, it was officially clinically launched, and Soon after distributed in European countries Today Piracetam is available without a prescription in Europe, Asia, South America and USA It is used in the treatment of vertigo, dyslexia, sickle-cell anemia, dementia, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, alcoholism, clotting disorders, and deep-vein thrombosis; and As an aid in recovery from aphasia, stroke, hypoxia, ischemia, electroshock, and brain damage It has over 30 years of clinical use and more than 800 studies have been published on it If taken orally, 99% of Piracetam is absorbed into the blood directly Piracetam easily crosses the blood brain barrier Within 1 ½ hours, Piracetam will hit its peak plasma level As Piracetam is soluble in water and not metabolized to any other substance, There is no effect on the liver The largest part of the human brain is divided into two hemispheres Its roles switch up a bit; but basically, One side controls logic and the other controls creativity In the middle, a thick bundle of fibers called the corpus callosum transmits Information from one side to the other, through nerve impulses Aided by a chemical called acetylcholine (aCH) Smart drugs in general and Piracetam in particular Increase activity of the corpus callosum by supporting the body's use of aCH, and Promoting growth of additional neural connections This increased brain activity sets off a chain of benefits, Starting with helping people to think creatively and logically at the same time College students utilize Piracetam to enhance intellectual performance Stroke victims take it as part of their recovery Parents claim it helps their children with learning disabilities Piracetam has many and varied uses in the area of neurology In summary, Piracetam is a drug that facilitates learning and memory in healthy individuals and It facilitates healing in those whose brain function has been compromised The pharmacology of Piracetam is unusual because It protects against a wide array of physical and chemical insults applied to the brain At the same time, even in relatively high dosages, It completely lacks toxicity and is devoid of any serious side effects In this video you have learned What is Piracetam If you want to learn more useful things about Piracetam then go to: DamianAlexander****/PiracetamPDF If you would like to learn more about critical nutritional supplements, life extension and disease prevention then subscribe to my youtube channel at: *******www.youtube****/user/DamianAlexandersVids The easiest and shortest way to: *Double physical and mental energy *Strengthen immunity *Restore health, visit: *******HowToChangeYourOwnBatteries**** *******www.howtochangeyourownbatteries****/go/Piracetam

*******www.youtube****/watch?v=DhdEKPb2MF4 In this video I will discuss SAMe and Depression As a team of Harvard researchers noted in a remarkable 2010 study Published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, "The majority of depressed patients will not experience remission when treated with a first-line antidepressant" In other words, Antidepressants don't really work for most patients More is needed to help depression's victims This is where SAMe comes in In modern high-tech imaging studies of healthy human brains, SAMe produces effects typical of several classes of antidepressant drugs But unlike those drugs, SAMe has remarkably few side effects And is well-tolerated even in elderly subjects People with depression may exhibit a wide variety of biochemical imbalances The most common and best-known are imbalances in: Serotonin (involved in mood, sleep, appetite, and learning) and Norepinephrine (involved in heart rate, blood pressure, and the fight-or-flight response) These chemical messengers belong to a class of molecules known as monoamines And their synthesis in brain cells is largely controlled by The presence of folic acid, vitamin B12and SAMe When released into the space between brain cells (the synapse), Monoamines exert stimulating or inhibiting effects on postsynaptic neurons With too little serotonin or norepinephrine available The brain cannot sustain a positive moodand depression results Virtually all antidepressant drugs work by attempting to boost levels of these Neurotransmitters within the synapse And therein lay many of their limitations And the causes of many of their side effects SAMe operates through a completely different mechanism than these drugs Essentially, it allows the brain cells to make what and how much of it they need SAMe is derived from the sulfur-containing amino acid methionine, Is found in every living cell and plays a central role in cellular biosynthesis processes In addition to being required for monoamine synthesis It also affects cell membrane fluidity Which in turn influences how well a neuron transmits an electrical signal What this means is that SAMe affects how well your brain functions and performs Recent studies have shown that SAMe is also involved in the so-called "epigenetic" control of cellular function The ability of cells to activate or suppress specific genes This likely explains some of it�s benefits for cancer prevention and treatment See the videos: "What is SAMe good for" and "How does SAMe work" In this video we have discussed *******www.howtochangeyourownbatteries****/go/SAMe
