Cruciferous vegetables can increase natural testosterone levels:
Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, can increase testosterone levels, (UGH!, my mother has been right).
Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli contain a compound called "(-)epicatechin". (-)epicatechin is a strong "Aromatase Inhibitor). What is Aromatase. Aromatase is an enzyme which converts Testosterone to Estrogen. Women obviously have higher Aromatase levels than us guys. As we age Aromatase levels increase in us guys. Less physical activity, sedentary lifestyle and lowering of the Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) are seen with aging. Thus, adipose (Fat) increases as we age. Aromatase is very high in fat. This DROPS our natural testosterone levels BUT INCREASES in Estrogen is seen.
This can happy at any age. Sedentary, boys (Seen with those who play video games all day) on diets high in fat, become fat.
This will INCREASE Aromatase activity lowering their endogenous Testosterone levels and increasing the levels of estrogen. Giving these young boys "Female breasts". This is why. However, this is reversible, by exercise and increasing the amount of cruciferous vegetables (broccoli) in their diet.
(-)Epicatechin is a strong Aromatase Inhibitor. (-)epicatechin
INCREASES our endogenous Testosterone levels naturally
by inhibiting Aromatase. The same results occur as we age as well. Consuming more broccoli can increase our endogenous Testosterone levels regardless of age!. When combined with exercise an Increase in Lean body mass results.
Other common foods high in (-)Epicatechin include cocoa, and Green tea. Cocoa is of course used to make CHOCOLATE ! (YEAH!). The interesting thing about the high (-)Epicatechin levels in cocoa is the levels are highest in Dark chocolate much less in milk or white chocolate.
This provides me the "Loop hole" to get out of eating the broccoli. My mom or my sister will "steal my plate" and the broccoli on it regardless, so the point is moot in this case. They still make me eat my broccoli (Ugh!), but I can justify eating the dark chocolate after!... Be well.

Your mother and "Popeye" are right. If you want to grow up to be "Big and strong, eat your spinach". As I sit. here eating my 2nd Twinki!
Ursolic acid- Ursolic acid is compound found in green leafy vegetables such as spinach. Kelp (sea weed), Cranberries, Billberries, Holy basil, and within the peel of apples, especially green apples. You have seen Ursolic. Ursolic acid gives the peel of an apple that "shiny" appearance. Next time when you are a supermarket, stand back a few feet and observe the "shine" on the apples. That's the Ursolic acid. Super markets take advantage of this, by placing the apples under bright lights. It makes the fruit more appealing. All have seen commercials on TV where they advertise facial creams which proclaim
"Younger looking skin, rid your face of wrinkles, and regain that youthful appearance. Believe it or not there is compelling scientific evidence that supports their claim and it is due to the high Ursolic concentration within their facial cream. You have seen this, many facial creams have "Bluish/green" hue to the facial mask. The blue/green color of the facial cream is due to the Kelp (Sea weed) within the cream. Remember, Kelp (sea weed) is high in Ursolic acid. Ursolic acid is great for facial creams because it thickens collagen fibers within the skin. The thickening of the collagen fibers "straighten" out the wrinkles, hence providing a more "youthful" appearance to the skin.
Ursolic acid has is currently being studied as a possible treatment for patients diagnosed with Duschen's Muscular Dystrophy (DMD)
DMD is a disease characterized by degeneration and atrophy of skeletal muscle. The fatality of this disease is do in a large part to the degeneration and atrophy of the skeletal muscles of both the diaphram and intercostal muscles. Lose of function of either will resort in the eventual death of the patient. Loss of function of the diaphram will require that the patient needs to be on mechanical ventilation.
Studies have clearly shown that administration of high doses of Ursolic acid thickens and strengthens skeletal muscles. Treatment of patients with Ursolic acid can thicken the skeletal muscle of the diaphram, slowing down the degeneration process and halting atrophy.
Studies in animals (Rats mostly) have clearly shown the inhibition of degeneration of skeletal muscle with a statistically significant DECREASE in skeletal muscle atrophy. Still much more research needs to be done, but results are promising. So go have an apple or two and
"Eat your Spinach" like your mother tells you!. I will start,...after I finish eating my Twinki!...

Vitamin B12 deficiency
Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamine) is important for maturation of red and white blood cells (RBC's, WBC's) within the bone marrow. Vitamin B12 is also crucial for normal function of the peripheral nervous system. When low (called Pernicious Anemia)
patients can present with lack of energy, low motivation. Blood work will show normal RBC count BUT the MCHC will be higher than normal. Prolonged deficiency of B12 can cause a "Peripheral Neuropathy" manifest by "Pins and needles" especially in the feet. Vitamin B12 deficiency is most commonly seen in senior citizens and strict vegetarians. Vitamin B12 is stored in liver and levels can never be high enough to cause toxicity.
Interestingly, we are now seeing Vitamin B12 deficiency presenting in younger middle aged patients who are non-vegetarians. These patients are frequently asymptomatic, and if not for a high MCHC are fine. Along with the increase of Vitamin B12 deficiency acid blocking medications such as Pepcid, Nexium, Omeprazole are being prescribed more and more frequently for acid reflux. All of these medications are safe and very effective. This is ONLY an assumption, but Vitamin B12 found meat is attached to a carrier protein called "R protein". R Protein combines with the Vitamin B12 within our saliva, stabilizes it and transports it to the stomach, where the stomach acid could dislodge the R-protein where the Vitamin B12 is passed on to another transporter Intrinsic Factor (IF) which transports the Vitamin B12 into the small into the small intestine where it is absorbed and makes its way into the bone marrow and peripheral nervous system.
One possible explanation (this is my assumption only) is when the gastric acid is lowered the Vitamin B12 attached to the R-Protein may NOT be detached. If this is true (again, my assumption only) then Intrinsic Factor (IF) will NOT be able to bind to the Vitamin B12. Pernicious Anemia is caused by LOW Intrinsic Factor concentration. Without IF, Vitamin B12 is NOT absorbed and is excreted with next bowel movement.
Regardless if my assumption is correct. The solution is simple, start taking B12 supplements, or better yet Vitamin B12 injections ( This bypasses the gut). Vitamin B12 is safe what your body does not use is stored in the liver. Vitamin B12 toxicity does not occur because what is not used is stored by the liver. Do NOT stop taking your gastric reflux medications
( Nexium, Omeprazole, Pepcid, Tagamet). These are great drugs with great safety record and are safe and effective. Continue to take your reflux medications, because the adverse effects of untreated gastric reflux disease is far worse (Esophageal cancer). CONTINUE TO TAKE YOUR REFLUX MEDICATIONS (Nexium etc.). Vitamin B12 supplements are safe and effective or get a yearly or even every 6 month injection of Vitamin B12 by your Physician.

Herbal fun fact: Where does the "Mad Hatter" in the "Alice and Wonderland" fairy tale come from?
In 19th century London, men as today wanted to look prosperous. The hats worn by men conveyed status and "breeding".
A hat could definitely "make the man" back in those days.
Hat makers were quite sought after. As part of making a hat, Mercury was used within the lining. Now, I do not know why Mercury was used as a hat liner but it was common. The amount and concentration of Mercury was very, very small.
So for the most part men never suffered from mercury poisoning. Like clothing designers of today, the best way to market your product was to get it out in public (No, TV, radio, or internet). The best way was to wear your hats out in public to help drum up business. Therefore, hat makers were on a daily basis of years then decades of being exposed to Mercury. Although in very, very, very amounts and concentration, the hat maker's hands , the forehead and scalp received a LOT of mercury exposure.
Mercury does have medicinal properties (To be discussed in future posts) but only in very, very, very small amounts eg.
.00001). However, when used in higher concentrations, Mercury poisoning is characterized by "Dementia". Mercury will collect within the Frontal Lobes of the brain. The Frontal Lobes of the human brain controls our personality, affect, decision making.
In the 19th century, "Dementia" was referred to as "Madness".
Thus, hat makers who were on a daily basis for years and decades exposed to Mercury. And when they wore the hats they made, they would sweat. Well, their perspiration INCREASED the absorption of the Mercury within the lining through the skin and brain. Over decades the Mercury builds up within the Frontal Lobes of the hatters resulting in Dementia, which they called "Madness". Hence, the "Mad Hatter" character in the story "Alice and Wonderland"...

Preservatives in topical supplications
Formaldehyde, facts you need to know
Last week, we pointed out that formaldehyde, used for decades as a preservative in topical over the counter applications is carcinogenic.
The amount of formaldehyde within these products are at levels that our FDA allows for an over the counter (OTC) application.
Unfortunately, the low concentration of formaldehyde makes it
no less of a carcinogen. We highly recommend that everyone read the ingredient list so you know what you are putting on yourself and on your loved ones.
Be aware of "FORMALDEHYDE RELEASERS". These are compounds that do NOT have "FORMALDEHYDE" in the name. However, once on the skin it's broken down to form "FORMALDEHYDE" and yes
FORMALDEHYDE is still a carcinogen. Some of the most common
Formaldehyde Releasing Compounds are the following:
In order, the FRPs that releases the most formaldehyde are
2. diazolidinyl urea,
3. DMDM hydantoin,
4. imidazolidinyl urea
Other frequently used compounds that are synonyms for
1. CH2O- CH2O represents the actual formula for "FORMALDEHYDE"!
3. Formica aldehyde
7. Methylene oxide
All are formaldehyde but " FORMALDEHYDE" is NOT within the name but once applied the body will convert it to FORMALDEHYDE
We here Jaxsens had absolutely no intention on ever using formaldehyde or the formaldehyde releasers as the preservative in our herbal cream.
We provide information to our patients and council them on ways to DECREASE their Cancer risk (Apply sunblock, add more vegetables to your diet, stop smoking etc.)
It would be hypocritical for us to use Formaldehyde or Formaldehyde Releasers in our Jaxsens Herbal Cream because FORMALDEHYDE is so inexpensive.
We found natural preservatives from plants and herbs which have shown both efficacy and safety. Jaxsens NEVER have and NEVER will put "PROFITS BEFORE PATIENTS"

Preservatives in Topical Over The Counter (OTC) applications for arthritis, musculoskeletal pain, as well as Cosmetics: A VERY disturbing trend.
Australian Dream?, TETRASODIUM EDTA Nightmare!
Facts that you need to know.
All topical creams, salves, gels etc. must have preservatives to protect against the growth of mold, fungus etc. The most commonly used preservatives include:
1. Formaldehyde and it's derivatives
2. Formaldehyde Releasing Agents- These compounds initially are NOT formaldehyde, but once contacting the skin they are degraded by enzymes producing and
"RELEASING" formaldehyde hence the name "FORMALDEHYDE RELEASING AGENTS"
3.When FORMALDEHYDE is combined with SODIUM CYANIDE this produces another preservative ETHYLENEDIAMINE. This compound is best known by its acronym EDTA
Yes, the Sodium CYANIDE used to produce EDTA, is the same CYANIDE used by that COWARD ADOLF HITLER and his Nazi, wimps. All ROASTING in HELL I am sure.
CYANIDE is lethal because it disrupts cell metabolism.
This leads to the production of ACID within the cells and all organs resulting in DEATH. CYANIDE gives an ALMOND like smell.
Do not take my word for it, below is an excerpt from the science literature describing the mechanism of action of CYANIDE
"DESCRIPTION: Sodium cyanide releases hydrogen cyanide gas, a highly toxic chemical asphyxiant that interferes with the body's ability to use oxygen. Exposure to sodium cyanide can be rapidly fatal. It has whole-body (systemic) effects, particularly affecting those organ systems most sensitive to low oxygen levels: the central nervous system (brain)"
Topical pain relief creams on the market right now use EDTA in the form of
TETRASODIUM EDTA. "AUSTRALIAN DREAMS". is an example of a topical OTC analgesic that contains TETRASODIUM EDTA where it is used as a preservative and penetration enhancer. I am sure the concentration of TETRASODIUM EDTA in this product as well as in others who use it as a preservative is at a concentration that our
FDA says is safe. However, FORMALDEHYDE remains a CARCINOGEN, and
SODIUM CYANIDE still remains as a compound that can be toxic
A small concentration of the compound does NOT change the fact that FORMALDEHYDE is a carcinogen and Sodium CYANIDE can be toxic.
Myself and my partners are Physicians. There was absolutely NO chance that we would use FORMALDEHYDE, FORMALDEHYDE RELEASERS, or EDTA in our
JAXSENS HERBAL CREAM.
All companies have the safety of the public in mind. FORMALDEHYDE, FORMALDEHYDE RELEASERS, or EDTA are NOT expensive. They are made in bulk and used by companies for various products were a preservative is required. In our opinion here at JAXSENS cost of the ingredients although important, but We do NOT put PROFIT before patients. We reviewed many preservatives to add to our formula. Preservatives such as FORMALDEHYDE, FORMALDEHYDE RELEASERS, or EDTA, were NEVER considered. We turned to NATURE.
So when it came time to choose the preservative for our formula, we all said categorically that we will NEVER use FORMALDEHYDE, FORMALDEHYDE RELEASERS, or EDTA in our cream.
In fact we did find a WONDERFUL herb/plant that has been used for centuries as a preservative and had a great tract record of efficacy and safety. It is expensive however, because it is must be extracted from the herb/ plant. But safety ALWAYS comes first, here at Jaxsens "Patients before Profit"
Next week we will be reviewing FORMALDEHYDE RELEASERS. You need to know the name of the compound because the word FORMALDEHYDE, DOES NOT appear within the ingredient list. These companies can get pretty "Sneeky". The public needs to be made aware so you can make a well informed decision. More on that next week.
A thousand apologies for such a long post, but you need to the facts

Preservatives in Topical Herbal Formulations
1. What is it?
Formaldehyde is a colorless, flammable, strong-smelling chemical that is found in many household products. In addition to its most common use in embalming fluid used in mortuaries and medical school anatomy labs. Formaldehyde is also used as a preservative in many of the well known topical over the counter pain relief formulations ( I will mention the name of these products, but all know them well and probably have in your medicine cabinet).Short term exposure to high concentrations of formaldehyde can cause eye irritation, runny nose, cough, wheezing. All are reversible. However little is known regarding formaldehyde and Cancer risk. NO human studies exist to answer this question. However, in animal studies results showed that exposure to formaldehyde could cause nasal cancer in rats. Thus, in 1987, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classified formaldehyde as a probable human carcinogen under conditions of unusually high or prolonged exposure. In small amounts as is used in these topical over the counter medications, Formaldehyde still exists as having a possible Cancer risk. Therefore why expose yourself, and your family to a product with a cancer risk, albeit it might be small.
Jaxsens Herbal Cream does NOT use formaldehyde or "formaldehyde releasers"( To be discussed next week) as a preservative in our revolutionary herbal formulation. In Jaxsens Herbal Cream, our preservative comes from a PLANT.
Yes, plants will produce compounds that act as a "Natural preservative". Plants also need to keep mold, yeast, fungi population low. This is how plants have survived over the past 4 Billion years. Without such a "Natural Preservative" plants would not be able to grow because mold and yeast will degrade the nutrients that plant needs to survive. This occurs in topical formulations as well. Without preservatives, molds, fungi, yeast will decrease the shelf life and effectiveness of the topical formula. In Jaxsens Herbal Cream, our patented formula is so revolutionary and ground breaking that the preservative in our formula comes from a PLANT/HERB!. So look before you "Leep". Before you purchase that topical over the counter pain relieving cream, look at the ingredients. If you see "FORMALDEHYDE". My advice?, leave it. There exists an excellent topical herbal pain relief cream that uses "Nature" as a preservative!
Beware, some companies know that most consumers will not purchase any pain relief cream that uses "FORMALDEHYDE"as a preservative. BUT since formaldehyde is a really good preservative AND cheap they will disguise it.
These compounds when placed on the skin will be metabolized to produce FORMALDEHYDE!. BUT beware, "FORMALDEHYDE" is NOT in the name of the compound. These preservatives are known as "FORMALDEHYDE RELEASERS".
More on this next week.
