32 Burst results for "growth hormone"
Delivering Biologics Orally
"Thanks for joining us. Daniel, thank you so much for inviting them. At least to be here, we're going to talk about Ronnie. Therapeutics effort to develop biologics orally the potential for this technology and the technology underlying this. What's the range therapeutics were talking about? How big a market opportunity are we talking about? That is a great first question to start with so. The the range of biologics there is no constraint on rich biologic. We can deliver for instance we can deliver peptides, insulin, or bt, age, human growth, hormone, or or Therapeutic antibodies like humira percent. Dick's in others. And other Larger molecules that are like factor aid. For instance for there is no constrained on kind of one accuser. We can deliver so therefore. The market that we address is merely. In? Hundred fifty billion dollars overall march that we we can. you know and can get a small piece of that. That great outcome. What's the case for doing this? What problems would be addressed and what benefits would there be? So you know when I started looking at this problem of the. Daily injections and Found that the people have tried turning. Insulin into oral formats or Even inhaled. Insulin end there. Other drugs people have tried. D- owning them in rural in fact over the last fifty years. There have been more than one hundred attempts main Trying to convert a few of these peptides into oil, and the vast majority of those efforts failed on the handful that have had some success in Rene. Say some success what I mean is. bio, absorption, or bioavailability, as it's called or amount of drug that is absorbed is Less than one percent so. compared to Subcu- injection. You're you're throwing a ninety nine percent of the drug. Because the enzymes in the gastric gi track really digestion breakdown in so the the chemistry approaches approaches that are employed cannot protect the drug long enough and well enough do get better than one percent absorption. have. There been other challenges to doing this. You know the the the significant amount of effort that has gone has gone into this chemistry based approaches Tried to block the enzymes with the enzyme blockers and. IMFORMATION enhancers that essentially the new the mucosal lining so. that. those those. Attempts have worked in very small biologic molecules to my knowledge. No one has tried delivering therapeutic antibodies with this approach and right after that will work well. Ronnie has taken. A mind-bending approach to the problem it's it's really fascinating to me as an approach to to problem solving it in the TAC. You've taken in developing the Ronnie Pill. What is the Ronnie Pill? Could. Let me start with the premise that. Led to this the asked a very simple question I. Ask. Why can't we have a pill? That goes into the intestine. and delivers a pain-free injection. and that was a that was the question I started with. And that question it has taken several years to answer that question. And we have. Great data so the a premise was. Created capsule. That is a like a tiny robot. Very low cost. And arrived the stomach acid. Goes into the casten and then. Transformed seven when injection delivers an injection in intestinal war. And The intentional water doesn't have the sharp pain receptors that we have in our skin, so the injection is pain pre.
Possible Symptoms of Autoimmune Disease
"Today show is called possible symptoms of autoimmune disease based on the rest of our show from last week about thyroid problem. So we're going speak a little bit about thyroid. Problems turning into autoimmune things. We're also going to talk about some other auto immune issues and the possible signs and symptoms that you're headed towards auto immune disease so with that getting started. We've got a ton of questions at the end again. Thank you so much for writing in to us in giving this those world. Try our best. Well Dr Elissalde tries best to answer them and We'll see if we can inform you and get you a little more educated because you guys out there learning so much coming back in quoting as things we've taught you and we're just so proud of our students here so Dr Lewis. Can you tell us a little bit about auto immune issues and why? They are so prevalent in this day and time it seems everyone has won a Can ramble on that for quite a while. You know one of the things. I'd like to say though. Yes you've learned a lot but it's not what you know it's what you do. What you do is by far more important. I'd rather have a not very well educated patient that just follows instructions because they always get better results Speaking of that and I'll let you get back to that. You're talking about a patient patients. They get good results. Do and what you do. We had a lady that came in for You know we run low cost lab work here for those people that don't know what we do and then in in about three months we run it again just to see how things are coming along and what. We change with the products Our last patient of the evening walked in our store last night and I said your lab results just came back and I just need to compare them again she. She had run her lab. I think it was about four months ago. I lab looked pretty high risk of heart attack and a whole bunch of other flags on the lab and really scared her pretty pretty bad and she was so diligent in keeping up with the program we gave her. I mean you saw like clockwork. She never ran out of any of the products she never said. Hey how about I take one of these off and just get these few. She did everything we told her to do and When I showed her lab last night just briefly I said Oh by the way your chance of heart attack and stroke. That was currently high is now in the in the low range non-existent All your digestive issues are are are corrected. All the flags that were on. There were totally God. Immune system was way better and she started crying and I said I did. I do something wrong. And she said no she said I needed to hear this so bad she said I cannot believe that in a few short months that you have totally reversed all of this. She said I had another functional medicine. Doctor that I was with for over a year and he tried and tried to get my heart risk down and he could never do it and I said well you know it wasn't us that was doing it. Yes it was our knowledge but it was her participation at it like Dr Lewis said. She totally trusted what we told her to do. And she did the work and That it made me cry. We were all up there all crime for different reasons so I just wanted to pass that along. You're absolutely right. Yeah and and you know the other functional medicine doctors very good very competent but You know they're also playing with hormone replacement therapy and I'll tell people wanna see you know. Go to your MD or do for that if you want that. And there's a caveat for everything There's there's certain risk no matter what you do so you know. I I tell people all the time. This is not Alternative to good medical care but it's certainly very very complimentary so out on the end diseases you know. Some people just bigger. Oh well if I just removed this. Everything goes away your part of the plan. Some some people's College for four hours and you got to remove the toxins that organisms or the harmful foods There's essential oils. That can actually help with that. To help. Kill some of the noxious bacteria in the In Gums and down in the GI track. We use some of those Cappella ACID oversee Help fight yeast and most of us have too much of that going on. The reason is is because we have a society that has The farmers have been compensated for growing corn and soybean and then they're genetically modified. That's not necessarily a good thing. Then then we have food. That has Antibiotics in it sometimes growth hormones the antibiotics and our food and just the pesticides can just cause all kinds of problems with the microbiome of the Gut. Which that's Worthy Immune System Resides for the most part so remove the toxins or organisms. Found out. You know what it is. There's it's usually just dairy wheat. Excuse me I keep having this bronco stuff. But it's not nearly as bad as used to be Darrien weights. The top two chocolate comes in usually third-place which bothers me a lot but the dark chocolates. Not Nearly as offensive coffees and Eric can be nut served. Citrus fruits outs and people. So but you doc you talk about going gluten free. Oats don't have gluten in it. Well what if it's grown in the field where they used to grow wheat so gluten can be a big problem and it depends on the condition for you know for example? Migraines it's usually wait seventy eight percent of the time then in oranges and eggs come in second and third but for Coladas or IBS. It's dairy wheat. Chocolate coffee is different things but dairy and I'm not against dairy if it's raw milk and still has a good bacteria in it but going gluten free is is made a big difference for many people. But you know depending on the conditions if you have psoriasis. The first thing I would suspect is a nightshade sensitivity. Pepper cloves nutmeg Sometimes the nuts can't do that sometimes artificial flavorings. There's so many possibilities. That is hard to figure this out so you know that's why I tell people yet. Try the most common ones but more importantly Let's go to reoccupy the guts with the good bacteria. That's very very important. But that's not even going to work unless you replace the digestive enzymes because digestive enzymes have an immune boosting effect. That's actually it maximizes itself. When the blood is alkaline is but that's kind of an over-simplification isn't it? True you know the auto immune things haven't hasn't there been a rise in it that there's a lot of people getting it Has Something to do with losing some of the bacteria in the colon. That should be there. That's not anymore. I think it's worse than it was five or ten years ago. Or maybe God just sends us more people because we're a little bit more intelligent or better educated Than we used to be so yes. I think in common but at least more and more people with autoimmune thanks for coming to us in Macau partner. I'll tell ya I don't trade it unless it's connected to the musculoskeletal system but you know if the cells are going bad you've got metabolic syndrome or diabetes or whatever it it's adversely affecting those sales it's adversely affecting the sales that Come at well the muscles and the skeletal system so it it if you fix when you fix the other. The main thing is use the power in the body to do that and so yeah. I think it's the lack of bacteria and I take several different types of products. I think it's very important and I've said this for years. That people have over sanitized the biggest Ingredient in the hand sanitizer paranoia. I don't do that and there's nothing wrong with good bacteria that come out of the soil. I don't wash the Heck Outta my organic carrots. You know rent some. There's studies kids that have dogs and cats have greatly reduced allergies because their body has been exposed to and and their good bacteria in the soil. Unless the crops or ground on conventionally farmed You know because it has the N. p. k. and has the glyphosate etcetera go to your local organic farmer. I promise you it's worth a little bit of bonus that they charge extra for that sometimes. It doesn't even cost extra but it's really worth it. Well in old days didn't a lot of the people eat. Dr Like you know during the time of hippocrates at all that didn't they actually eat dard I mean I know a and now we have you know bat dirt but If it was organic dark that they tried to get a little bit of Dart on their food just so they'd be healthier.
Can Taking Zinc Help Shorten Your Cold?
"So we are right in the middle of cold and flu season and Alison as our consumer health aficionado. Let's start with talking about how to reduce the likelihood of getting a cold. Okay there's our shortwave favorite which washing your hands and you know mattie not everybody who gets exposed to cold actually get sick when they've done these studies where they take a rhinovirus and they stick it up people's noses and they see who gets sick and who doesn't they find that people who've slept less than six hours are about twice as likely to get sick when exposed to this cold virus as compared to people who've slept more so sleep is really important High stress has been shown to increase the likelihood and a lack of exercise has also been shown to make you more susceptible. I feel like you just targeted me with the high stress. I am not here to wag my finger at you or anyone else because at a certain point look we all get a cold. Typically adults in the. Us get about two to three colds a year. And when you do get a cold there is something you can do to put yourself out of so much misery. One method people swear by is zinc. That's right it's a mineral found in trace amounts in a lot of the foods that we eat our bodies need zinc to function optimally. In fact it's considered an essential mineral and boosting the amount of zinc. You get during a cold by sucking on zinc. Lozenges is actually shown a bunch of studies to help shorten the length of the common cold but only in certain situations and there are a lot of caveats so today on the show zinc an essential mineral and a cold remedy. We'll talk about when it works and when it doesn't Okay Alison we're talking about zinc and whether or not it helps shorten the length of a cold and there's a story behind that question that starts in the nineteen sixties. Yup that's right that is when a young physician named a Nanda persad studied a group of young Egyptian men who were completely deficient in zinc. Now these young men suffered from stunting. They hadn't grown to a normal height or developed normally in other ways and this is because they had very limited diets. They ate a lot of bread. That was hind phosphate. And that can actually block the absorption of zinc. Now skip ahead. Prasada is now ninety. One years old. He is still an active researcher at Wayne State University in Detroit and. He told me that when he gave these young men zinc. Something really remarkable happened. The grew at the rate of five to six inches in height the first two years so it was. What is a molecule remarkable? Change that occurred after supplementation. When you first documented this what was your you must have been ecstatic. Y- well actually the first patient re gives zinc and his other two couldn't believe it because I thought that the growth phenomena will be shut off after the age of eighteen and nothing will happen to anybody but that was not the case. So does that mean that. We all need to grow right well. We all do need zinc for optimal health. It doesn't work like a growth hormone and here in wealthier nations. It's completely possible to get enough zinc in your regular diet. But back in the nineteen sixties. The role of zinc was not at all understood. I mean people thought persad was crazy for just suggesting that zinc deficiency can do this but he ignored all those people who are skeptics. He just kept pressing on. He became really just kind of obsessed with getting to the bottom of how zinc work in the body. And so after he documented the growth in these young men. He threw himself into further studies. He really laid the groundwork by showing that zinc influences immunity he theorized that zinc works as an anti inflammatory agent and then over the course of a couple of decades persad and other scientists have shown that up to three hundred enzymes requires zinc for their activation or stability of their structure. Right like enzymes that you would even be familiar with like alcohol. Dehydrogenation rolls right up the Tong Yung. But importantly breaks down all that beer and wine. You drink the alcohol right right exactly but keep in mind. It took decades to show this. I mean lots of scientists completely questioned persad findings but eventually in nineteen seventy four. The National Academy of Sciences declared zinc an essential mineral for human health and they established recommended daily intake level. What is that Level Alison? Because now I'm a little worried about my zinc levels. Prepare well public. Health officials say that adult men need about eleven milligrams of zinc per day. Women about eight milligrams so let me help you figure this out. If you ate a three ounce beef chuck rose you'd get about seven milligrams so red meat can be quite high. That's close to a day's amount. A Half Cup of beings will get you about three milligrams. Pumpkin seeds a single ounce provides two point two milligrams so that's a good source and then there are lots of cereal grains that are fortified with zinc. Right that's why I eat a bowl of cereal every night. Eleven PM for my zinc. That's right you are clearly not zinc division. Here's a fun fact. Wasters have more zinc per serving than any other food. They contain seventy four milligrams per three serving. That feels like too much now overall. We shouldn't laugh. I mean overall here in North America overt zinc deficiency is pretty uncommon. But let me get back to the story of Dr Prasada and his discovery is now these zinc guidelines were first put into effect in nineteen seventy four and once. That happened. Persad began to wonder since he knew that zinc had an effect on immunity. Weather's zinc supplements might help to shorten the duration and symptoms of a common cold. And I should say that he kinda came at this from what he had realized back in Egypt. He's seeing that. A lot of these deficient men died early from infections. So his guests was that yes zinc lo and behold probably did play this role and immunity. Now it's known for instance that the body requires zinc to develop an activate t lymphocytes those. They're like protect you viruses and tae exactly that come out to protect you. They're the type of white blood cell. That is a key part of the immune system so this was all kind of in the back of his mind. He wanted to test out. Whether these zinc supplements might help shorten the cold so he collaborated with a scientist fellow. Scientists named Tom Fitzgerald at the University of Michigan. I talked to Fitzgerald and he told me what when Persad I gave him this theory. He was pretty skeptical. Got Admit when I first heard this I I actually told us a research assistant i. I think he's losing it. I was he so skeptical other than just being a scientist right. Exactly you know. I guess he was skeptical. That something as basic as a mineral would be powerful enough on its own to alter immune function which is a good level of skepticism. But he did agree to do the study. They recruited a whole bunch of people in Detroit. Who had colds? They gave them zinc lozenges made by a pharmacist. It was a double blind placebo controlled trials that means that neither the participants nor the researchers knew who was getting the real thing and who was getting the Placebo. And here's what they found long behold when I did in Dallas it indeed did shorten common cold symptoms by about two or three days and I gotTa Admit. I was stunned by that result. Two or three days isn't nothing now not at all when you think about. How many lost work and schooldays there are just because of cold symptoms that significant absolutely and then several other studies have confirmed these findings. I talked to another scientist. His name is Harry. Pamela of the University of Helsinki in Finland he published a sort of Meta analysis that reviewed a bunch of the studies and says bottom line here is low doses of zinc lozenges. Don't work you gotTa take about eighty to ninety milligrams a day of zinc at the onset of a cold that has been shown to help shorten it and he says he now uses zinc when he the cold coming on himself though. I'm also encouraging my patients to try zinc but Usually I am encouraging only if the common cold has been lost in for a day or something like that so he saying only within the first day that's right because if you don't catch it at the beginning you can't really halt the progression. It doesn't work okay so if you're taking zinc at the beginning of a cold it has to be within the first twenty four hours. That's what the studies have shown. Okay but here is another caveat and it's a pretty big one if you go to the drugstore right now and you find a zinc product. A lot of what you'll find are these multi ingredient products with a whole bunch of other ingredients. You've probably never heard of before. Be Aware that a lot of ingredients can undercut the effectiveness for instance. Some of them contain citric acid which actually binds with the zinc and makes it completely ineffective. So you're basically saying you've got to take it early. You've got to take at least eighty to ninety milligrams and avoid stuff with citric acid. That's right and as the consumer health reporter here I want to be able to say. Go out and buy this product. Unfortunately I can't do that because the lozenges used in the clinical trial. Those are not commercially available. And here's the deal. A LOTTA TIMES MANUFACTURERS CHANGE THEIR INGREDIENTS. They changed dosing. It's hard to make a solid recommendation about a product. Just basically have to do your homework. You gotta be aware that you need certain dose and that you don't want all these other ingredients think it's more what you can feel assured of is that there's science behind the idea that yes zinc can help shorten a cold. Would you be comfortable saying? Hey go out there and eat a couple of years. You know if you're seafood lover absolutely go. Enjoy some wasters. I can't tell you whether or not they're an aphrodisiac but I can tell you. They've got plenty of zinc
How Do We Fall Asleep?
"On this podcast. You take questions from kids just like you all over the world and we find answers. We've heard from a lot of you who listen to podcast when you're winding down and getting ready for bed so it makes sense that a lot of you are inspired to send. Us questions about sleep. Flooded people toss and turn on the Risley when new getting into the deep sleep. You'll Buri somehow wakes you up but kicking and it feels like you're really hot. Why's that I don't want to get out of bed in the morning? And when it is nighttime I don't want to go. She read in this episode. We are answering your questions about sleep. Did you know there are doctors who focus specifically on helping kids sleep better? We found one of them at national Jewish health. That's a hospital in Colorado. My Name is Dr Lisa. Meltzer and I am a pediatric sleep psychologist. Which means I work with kids to help them sleep better. Do you feel like you sleep. Pretty well do you think. Oh Yea when the adults in your life tell you it's bedtime or do you struggle to get ready for bed and maybe even struggled to go to sleep or to stay asleep. Dr Meltzer says there are a few things that all of us can do to help us on the path to good sleep. Kids have a very consistent bedtime. Wake time so that means you go to bed about the same time every night. Wake up about the same time every morning. We recommend things like not having any screens in your bedroom. Having a bedroom. That's nice and cool and dark and a place that you like to sleep things like that that are very consistent. What we call sleep health. Let's jump right into some of our questions because we have a lot of kids who have sent us questions about sleep or we're going to start with the basics. Hi My name is and I live in South Orange New Jersey. I'm Steffan and my question is why do people need to sleep? Thank you I love your show similarly from Jordan in Vermont. Why do we really need to go to? Here's one from Maria and five years old and I come from Ottawa Ontario. And my question is why people need to sleep and we also got this from five year old aiden in McKinley Bill California. Why do have to sweep? 'cause I don't will you get and by the White Cornyn Swe We book. That sounds like a lovely way to fall asleep. Aiden so Dr Meltzer. Why do we need to sleep? These are great questions that scientists are spending a lot of time trying to better understand and we don't have one particular answer but we have a lot of different reasons that people think are important for why we sleep. The first one goes back to how humans have developed so there was a time when humans didn't live in houses but lived out in caves. Lived out in the wild and at night when they sleep they were inactive and that made them vulnerable so that predators. The big animals might come and attack them during the night. So you sleep to stay away from those animals that might come and harm in the middle of the night. In other words people were possibly safer tucked up in a cave or shelter sleeping through the night instead of being out and about in the dark when there were big animals with better eyesight also roaming around but being asleep doesn't mean your body shuts down completely. You can still be somewhat alert to danger when you're sleeping you do notice a little bit of the world around you. You can hear certain sounds and things like that and it same thing back in those times where you would want enough of a consciousness enough of awareness of what's going on around you to protect you from those Predator so we call that the evolution of why we sleep so another theory why we sleep is to conserve our energy. I mean we use a lot of energy during the day when you're running and you're playing when you sleep. These things changed the number of calories that you need reduce your temperature drops down your body is basically given a time to rest and relax. So that conserves your energy while you're sleeping and along those lines that allows your body to restore itself so again you're working your muscles all these types of things when you're awake and when you rest it allows them to heal sort of like when you get a cold at night it allows your immune system to fight off those bad germs to help you get better again really interesting one of the first things that happens when you fall asleep is growth hormone is released in growth hormone helps you grow so you literally grow in. Your sleep. So that's another reason. Why Sleep is important. I knew it. I knew I felt taller when I wake up in the morning. Okay maybe it doesn't work that way for adults but that's pretty cool isn't it? You grow while you're sleeping kind of make sleeps on more appealing more like something you might. WanNa do doesn't it? But it's not just your body that gets to rest and recover and rebuild from a busy day of running around. Your brain also need sleep to stay at peak performance. We know that children's brains develop in different ways as they get older so in very young children. The areas around language envision are the parts that are the most active during sleep. Because that's the part of you that's developing during the day and when you're in school aged the parts of your brain that start learning all the different things like math and reading those parts of your brain start to develop when you become a teenager the front part of your brain that helps you with decision making and keeping your mood. Nice calm. That's the part of your brain. That's most active during sleep. So your brain is also developing during sleep. Here's something else you might like to know. Sleep helps you remember what you've learned you take in information while you're awake but it sets in your brain while you're sleeping so if you're studying for say vocabulary test you. WanNa go to sleep after you've because it will help your brain remember. Those words in the morning same goes for all kinds of memories and other things. You might want to be able to repeat like that joke. Your friend told you that you can't wait to tell someone else. Hello My name is Shaun. I live in San Diego. My question is what is sleeping. Get rid of toxins in your brain. Why does sleeping get rid of toxins in the brain? It's a great question so again during the day. Our brain is really busy with everything that we have to do to help us get through the day but when we're sleeping our brain is less busy with all those activities so it has time basically to clean itself out and the toxins build up as we're active and doing all the things that we're doing so sleep gives a time for the brain to relax and sort of take care of itself. I like picturing little cleaners with brooms and stuff inside my brain going in and sweeping and scraping things off. That don't need to be there. That's perfect I mean. It really is a time. It's kind of like when you leave school overnight. They come in and they clean all the rooms and they get ready for the next day. It's the same kind of thing going on in your brain. We have some questions for you. Dr Meltzer about movement and Hello. My name is emily now from Brisbane Australia. Seven and my question is when you sleep. He'll but we're new getting into the deepest sleep your body somehow wakes you up but kicking in feels like you jump really hot what I want to know. So this is something called a hip nick jerk or asleep twitch hip nick jerk sleep twitch. I love that name. Do you ever have a hip. Nick Jerk happen to you. You're just falling asleep and then you feel like you're falling and your body twitches and it wakes you up if you watch babies. They do this all the time when they're falling asleep as you get older you tend to do it a little bit less and there's again multiple reasons why people think this happens. One of the reasons is that as you're falling asleep all of your muscles start to relax and your brain may think oh those muscles relaxing. They must be falling. And it kicks you awake and that causes you to jerk or jump high into the air. It could make maybe even scare you that feeling of
Could a Drug Cocktail Reverse Biological Aging?

Welcome to brainstorm a production of iheartradio. Hey, brain stuff. Lauren Vogel bomb here. Fans knew Andre the giant as the eighth wonder of the world, but friends and loved ones had their own designation. We spoke by Email with Benjamin Brown. An archivist for world, wrestling, entertainment, or the WWE. He said, under the giant was and still is affectionately referred to as boss, symbolizing, the respect he commanded and was appropriately given long before the towering icon, became a pop culture, phenomenon under the giant was Andrew SAAF, a French kid who led up somewhat average life until puberty hit born in Grenoble, France in nineteen Forty-six resolve was beautiful baby has older brother and Thuan said an HBO documentary about Andre's life, quote, he was normal his life changing transformation began in his early teens when it became evident that Roussel mauve had to Terry Glenn disorder called acrimoniously the sorter. According to the mayo clinic occurs, when the Patou itary gland produces too much growth hormone during adulthood, causing the bones to increase in size. It typically affects middle aged. Notes, but can happen at any age and what it strikes, still developing kids like it did, and muffs case it can cause a condition called, gigantism, which results in, abnormal increases in height and exaggerated bone growth, Roussel, muffs major physical, transformation occurred in the time between his departure from home at age fourteen to seek employment outside of granola and his first return visit at age nineteen nineteen Eighty-one Sports Illustrated profile reported indeed during the five years young Andre had been estranged from his parents, he'd grown so large that even as mother and father failed at first and even second glance to recognize him or to connect the giant. They had seen on television with the gangly dreamer, who would hide himself to Paris so long before. Of continued to grow by the age of twelve he hit six feet, that's one point eight meters and two hundred and forty pounds or a hundred kilos and rapidly grew from there. So he set his sights on a career that allowed him to use his size to his advantage. Wrestling after training with French champion Frank. Val wa who later became his manager worse enough begin competing under the name zone. Fair in Montreal and monster off in Japan. The young giant began making a name for himself, as a baby-faced colossal, competitor and bell wa introduced him to legendary wrestling promoter and Smick man senior as the founder of the world, wide, wrestling federation, or WWF, which later became the WWE McMahon made a few suggestions to increase Russa muffs. Potential success, including a name change McMahon dubbed, the wrestler, Andre the giant and sent him off to compete around the world.

"growth hormone" Discussed on The Peter Attia Drive
"If not more of circulating idea fun in the plasmas of you take blood of you or me comes from the liver. So it's liver derived, so if you knock out growth hormone, signaling in you completely shut off and shutdown circulating, Jeff one. There's still local one in cells and tissues but circular object. One goes to zero and circulating if one is the plasma biosensor for growth horns growth owns half. Life is extremely short. So we have all system to measure growth on levels. Not by measuring growth around self about idea. If once when levels fall, the hypothalamus Petur sense that and then they turn on growth on that is. So brilliant, just as an engineer I have to sort of reflect on that for a moment. Every time I hear something like what you just said. I'm so glad that I was not in charge of evolution because I screwed that one up. I would have said make the growth hormone censor since growth hormone. And of course, you would get into a cyclic amplified response because of how short it sticks around. But instead, luckily, Volusia was in charge and not me it said, not an undue. That's going to be way too fluctuating. Let's look at something that's much more stable. That's a read out of growth hormone. Oh, hey, how about I g f and have that the feedback loop? Goodness gracious. I love when nature is so smart. The fascinating thing is that circulating. I have one. I won't say it's all it does because it does a few other things, but the vast majority of its role is as a plasma by sense of growth, regular, growth hormone secretion. So what happens if you knocked out if you get this Eugene, greasing Bruins agreed. And you basically get acrobatically, but you get sick. Active growth resistance in the hat aside. So you probably remember the growth hormone has been described for a long time forever and ever to be prolific and it actually one of two home runs both catafalque anabolic. But it turns on it's a way to mobilize that from adipose tissue stores to stop thrown being the other where you can be anabolic to muscle cata Bolic fat and third horn ethic is another one where you can be both unlike insulin, for example, which would be anabolic to both or cortisol which would be actually of the reverse its cata Bolic to muscle anabolic defecit. So in any case begin animal, growth hormone, if you have a patient who has a tumor that secretes growth run disease called Akra medically or gigantism right under the giant had gigantism. Those people have a decrease in lean body mass increase muscle mass. That's that's basically because growth hormone mobilizes fab adipose tissue stores. So we reasoned that what was happening was the growth was turning on life policies and mobilising all this fat..
Jarrell 'Big Baby' Miller fails additional drug tests after losing out on Anthony Joshua title fight
"Yards. Big baby Miller. Flunk the preflight drug tests a couple of days ago. Well that kills the fight. But he has the option he asked he can ask the commission to test a step a second sample. Okay. So the first sample had something called GW one five one six I came it. This is the EP. Oh, okay. They test the second sample that sample comes out clean, you go to commission and say it was something wrong with the first one. Okay. Usually the second one is just as bad as the first only in. This guy's case. He doesn't have APO in the second test. He's human growth hormone because they did blood work for the second test. So he's he flunked two tests not one test with with two samples they split. Now. You've got to two different drugs in the system and earlier in the day. He said, we I I know knowingly would put anything in my body. I don't happen to have been tested never funk before said. Oh, yes. You do. Oh, you've forgotten back in two thousand fourteen when you were kickboxer you got suspended for nine months by the California commission. He had some drug in his system has seventeen letters.

"growth hormone" Discussed on Ben Greenfield Fitness
"Do you have any concerns because I knew we'll probably get this question about, you know, undifferentiated cell growth and the potential for carcinogenicity or something like that along with the use of growth hormone. I think growth hormones tricky. I mean, we we have some patients on growth hormone. I think what happens with growth hormone in my experience, and I've been using it with patients for a long time is patients get the sense that if a little is good a lot is better. And I think that's where people get in trouble because I think you can use a very moderate dose of growth hormone in a reasonable way without manipulating that hormonal pathway, and so if we stick to that, and you know, the issue is, and this is a interesting topic. Anyways, you know, what happens with, you know, insulin growth factor one or I G F one. And I know there's this. There's this kind of rivalry almost with the fitness versus longevity in terms of fun. And I think with growth hormone, you have to be careful because if you exceleron IGF one too quickly you can signal for cell growth at times, you don't want cell growth, whereas the peptide. Ads don't seem to elevate. I one in less. I mean, there is peptide of of idea when I have a patient on right now. But you really with the peptides, especially the growth home, releasing peptides? You're not increasing. I Jeff one you're just making your idea one more efficient, and that's the big difference. So P who use growth hormone, the challenges in my opinion. We do is we monitor their levels because if we see them rapidly going up, we know they're potentially is yet. That's the cell signaling telling the cells to accelerate growth where we probably don't want that. Okay. Got it. Yeah. So basically, you wanna test pretty intensively under supervision when using these things not like with growth hormone. Yeah. I from me from a website and just administer willy nilly. Yeah. And I think of growth hormone being much more valuable if you're seventy eight years old, right? And you really do need growth hormone replacement right? Like just like testosterone declines as we get older, growth hormone, certainly declines. But for my patients, I wanna reserve that till the variant, I think the peptides offer way too much potential. They're not as potent. But again, we're fine with that. Because we don't want to trigger this cell signaling their the cell growth at times, we're not supposed to have cell growth, and the and the and the peptides don't do that they make your idea of one more efficient, but they're not gonna accelerate your idea fun. And I know that because we've been using them for years, and we measure people all the time. Okay. Good to know. I again, as you guys are listening to me, and we're going through this. I'm.
Is GHB Safe?
"For those. You haven't heard of GHB gamma hydroxy botanic acid originally known as the date rape drug. Be put slip it into drinks to aid with sexual assault. And I in no way endorse anything like that. When it comes to the use of GHB. However, there are there are interesting things about this molecule that. I think make it compelling, and when I go to parties these days where I'm in in Vegas with some my friends at cetera. Many of them are now a shoeing alcohol in favor of you know, marijuana edibles marijuana. Vape pens, small microdosing LSD or suicide Simon. Some cases larger doses. And then also do GHB which will typically have them like a little, you know, like like a little flask. Or, you know, I know some people carry it around like five hour energy bottles things that look like it's not what it is. And that's that's GHB even bodybuilders speak of mass gains that it promotes increase production of growth hormone, human, growth hormone and promote sounder sleep. And it actually is one of the few molecules I've ever been able to find that has been proven to increase deep sleep cycles, dramatically and recovery and growth hormone dramatically during sleep when used in the proper amounts and used correctly without any deleterious side effects. The problem is that it can be very difficult to dose, and it causes this coma like sleep the when mixed with alcohol enhances the depressant effective in more. And so it can quickly lead to unconsciousness and even death. You know, especially if you've vomited or something like that while you're in the coma. And that's one of the reasons that of course, it was used as a date rape drug as well. Because if you don't dose properly, I mean, your heart rate will slow your breath rate will slow your body temperature will decrease in get nausea, and you get coma, and you can't even get death. So, you know, this also though in lighter amounts is something that is used as a party drug. You know, one of one of the the the street names for it is liquid ecstasy liquidity. And so you know, it actually can be one of those things that kind of kind of picks you up a little bit. If you use it in in a little bit more of a party or kind of even like a sex scenario. It's us a lot of times to enhance as well, but in higher amounts definitely something that would be used for sleep. So this is one of those compounds of very similar to some other compounds out there, you know, like CBD, for example, you know, very effective in the treatment of narcolepsy or anxiety or stress and smaller amounts, but then larger amounts can improve sleep structure and really give you a lot of growth hormone release in recovery while you're asleep, and it. Simulates the the brain neurotransmitter gamma immuno be acids. So anybody who's taken like a P H Gabba, which is far easier to get you can buy ph GATT on Amazon, you can kind of get a little bit of a feel for what had feel like to use GHB. If you were to do something like take PH Gabba and have a glass
New study links processed meats to breast cancer
"Show a link between tumors cancerous tumors that start in the breast associated with women. More commonly those women who eat hot dogs and burgers on a regular basis. Women who consumed the most processed meat were nine times nine percent. I should say more likely to develop the disease, breast cancer. According to a meta analysis and data of twenty eight previous studies world cancer research fund recommends cutting out red meat altogether. Here in the US, the so-called experts don't recommend a specific limit. Of course, they don't because why. Well, the cattle industry rains here. They have made many. Lobbyists that can can really rain in any kind of education on this process. And it's not that red meat necessarily is unhealthy for you in eating once in a while. I don't eat red meat haven't had red meat in forty years. I grew up on it in the mid west. But we're talking here about processed meats, mostly vacant hotdogs. Now listed as carcinogenic by the international agency of research on cancer, a branch of the World Health Organization. The same agency also says red meat is a probable carcinogenic agent. Now, of course, you know, Marta. The problem is how we adulterate meets we feed these animals, the wrong stuff antibiotics and hormones and bovine growth hormones and recombinant hormones, and they get all kinds of stuff in their bodies that are passed on to those people who bury their carcasses in their bodies the amount of processed meat in the American diet has dropped in recent years, but millions of people still easily exceed the proposed limit which they don't even list. The new research by Harvard University offers another reason for women to keep cutting out hot dogs and hamburgers and red meat in general, mainly because it increases their risk of. Of breast cancer by nine percent. And they believe that is significant and we're not just talking about hot dogs and hamburgers. We're talking about salami bacon ham, corned beef put that on the list. So the goal here would be to consume more omega rich fish, and maybe some organic poultry and stay away from the red meat. And a specially the processed red meat's. That's for sure. All right. We're going to go back to your telephone calls and your questions now. And we'll say Hello to as always. Thank you question up. Read something in a paper a correlation between taking ibuprofen Advil stuff like that and ovarian cancer at women. No, I don't know. There's a truth to that. But if it does have a correlation what about men, well, it's long term use when you're talking about.
