Steroids have gotten a pretty bad rap! In reality, they're not just the big bad anabolic steroids. This class of molecules includes many vitamins as well as cholesterol. Cholesterol has also gotten a bad rap! We need cholesterol for our cell membranes to be rigid enough to stay intact, and for our bodies to build other important molecules. What I'm saying is that you should watch all of these tutorials, and don't believe everything you hear around town about molecules!

Course materials at http://oregonstate.edu/instruct/bb451 Highlights Steroid Metabolism / Fat Transport 1. The liver senses the body's need for lipids via LDL receptors. If lipids are needed, VLDLs are packaged by the liver and released. These get degraded by lipases and other enzymes to IDLs and LDLs. LDLs are taken up by cells when needed. If the liver LDL receptor cannot detect LDLs in the blood, it continues to release more lipids in lipoprotein complexes. 2. LDL receptors are a leading cause of high blood cholesterol. Other factors to consider include dietary cholesterol, cholesterol synthesis rate, and efficiency of recycling cholesterol. Statins inhibit HMG-CoA Reductase. 3. LDLs are referred to as "bad" cholesterol, because they are associated with formation of atherosclerotic plaques. 4. HDLs are referred to as "good cholesterol", because they are associated with reducing levels of cholesterol. HDLs are reduced in smokers, but are increased in response to exercise. 5. LDLs can lead to formation of atherosclerotic plaques. These arise due to oxidative damage of unsaturated fatty acids in the LDL by reactive oxygen species. The immune system attacks these damaged LDLs. 6. Factors increasing LDLs include smoking, obesity, and saturated fat in the diet. 7. High levels of HDLs correlate with reduced incidences of atherosclerosis. Factors increasing HDLs include exercise and factors decreasing them include obesity and smoking. 8. SREBP (Steroid response element binding protein) is a protein that plays a role in controlling whether or not HMG-CoA reductase is made. When cholesterol is abundant, SREBP is found in the membrane of the endoplasmic reticulum linked to SCAP through the regulatory (REG) region of SREBP. When cholesterol is abundant, SCAP-SREBP-A is held in the endoplasmic reticulum's membrane by a protein called INSIG 9. When cholesterol levels in the cell fall, the SCAP/SREBA complex loses its connection to INSIG and moves to the Golgi Complex where serine protease cleaves SREBP-A to release SREBP-B. SREBP-B migrates in the membrane to a metalloprotease, which clips the DNA binding region to free SREBP-C from the membrane-bound portion. The SREBP-C enters the nucleus and binds to the promoter region in front of the HMG-CoA Reductase, causing HMG-CoA Reductase to be synthesized. 10. HMG-CoA reductase can be broken down when cholesterol is abundant. Another INSIG carries an enzyme to ubiquitinylate the HMG-CoA reductase. Ubiquitin is a "flag" to the cell to digest it with a protease. 11. Phosphorylation of HMG-CoA reductase is also regulated by feedback inhibition and phosphorylation. Thus, HMG-CoA reductase can be regulated in multiple ways - synthesis, degradation, phosphorylation, allosterism. 12. Cholesterol is a precursor of the bile acids. Two examples include glycocholate and taurocholate. 13. Cholesterol is a precursor of the steroid hormones - all derived from pregnenolone and include Androgens (male sex hormones), Estrogens (female sex hormones), Mineralocorticoids (regulation Na/K and blood pressure), Glucocorticoids (fat/protein degradation & swelling/inflammation), and Progestagens (maintenance of pregnancy) . 14. Conversion of androgens to estrogens requires action of the aromatase enzyme. Some tumors are stimulated by estrogens, such as estradiol. Inhibition of them by aromatase inhibitors is a strategy of some chemotherapies. 15. Vitamin D is derived from cholesterol. A reaction converting 7-dehydrocholesterol to Previtamin D3 requires ultraviolet light. Conversion of Previtamin D3 to Vitamin D3 occurs spontaneously. Fatty Acid Oxidation 1. Breakdown of fats occurs by action of enzymes known as lipases. 2. Fatty acid oxidation and fatty acid synthesis are almost identically the chemical reverse of each other.

Cholesterol : What causes high cholesterol?
 
12:59
Cholesterol : What causes high cholesterol? Cholesterol is a chemical compound that the body requires as a building block for cell membranes and for hormones like estrogen and testosterone. The liver produces about 80% of the body's cholesterol and the rest comes from dietary sources like meat, poultry, eggs, fish, and dairy products. Foods derived from plants contain no cholesterol.

Estrogen vs Progesterone Hormonal Dominance: Control Low Hormones Symptoms
 
04:05
http://getleantoday.com - Dr. Raj Banerjee shares the key differences between estrogen and progesterone. Steroids are a group of hormones that regulate body functions – and they are all derived from cholesterol. Or fat. That’s right, fat. Estrogen, which is usually the focus of HRT, is actually a generic term for three different forms of hormone called Estriol, Estrodiol and Estrone - Estrodiol being the most potent. Estrogen is called the female sex hormone because it regulates the menstrual cycle and causes thing to grow during puberty – Dr Raj likes estrogen because it creates curves and it also stimulates cell growth in preparation for pregnancy. Estrogen is a growth hormone. It has received a lot of bad press because people have been taking too much estrogen in the form of synthetic hormone for a long period of time. And any hormone you take in excess is going to cause problems. And a growth hormone like estrogen if you take too much of it. You are going to get excessive cell growth which is another term for what we call cancer. So its understandable, estrogen is not good or bad, but if you take too much estrogen its going to cause problems. Progesterone is the pro gestational hormone. It’s the hormone that keeps the uterine lining intact if you get pregnant. And its depleted when you are under stress. So the typical reaction is high stress, high cortisol levels when you are under stress and the depletion of the progesterone. Its pretty amazing what progestronine helps with. It helps protect from many of the negative effects of extra estrogen. It helps women sleep. It gives them better sex drive, better energy levels, makes your skin look better. It’s a wonderful hormone. If we compare them side-by-side, you’ll see that they counterbalance each other in many ways. There’s an ideal ratio between these two hormones. Estrogen given in too large of a dose can cause depression, headaches, it increases the risk of blood clotting and stroke. It causes the loss of many nutrients such as zink and copper. It interferes with oxygen levels. Again that in a person that is getting excessive estrogen which has basically been the history of menopausal treatment. Dr Raj wants to leave you with an important point to free yourself from chronic fatigue and pain and depression and overweight. Ovarian hormones do not spontaneously malfunction by themselves. The female hormones do not all of a sudden malfunction by themselves. They are responding to stress as a stress hormone called cortisol. Every molecule of cortisol that you produce comes from progesterone. When you are under stress guess what happens? Your cortisol goes up and your progesterone drops. Dr Raj wants to test your cortisol and fix it. And he wants to test your female hormone and fix your whole hormonal system at the same time and make all your symptoms go away. That will help eliminate depression and fatigue. Night sweats, hot flashes, mood swings etc. and it will improve your metabolism so you will able to start losing weight.

33. Ahern's BB 350 at Oregon State University - Cholesterol Metabolism
 
52:15
Email me at kgahern@davincipress.com Friend me on Facebook at kevin.g.ahern Highlights Lipid Metabolism III 1. Fats are synthesized by putting fatty acids onto glycerol-3-phosphate. In the reactions, fatty acids are first esterified onto carbons 1 and 2 of the glycerol. This creates the molecule called phosphatidic acid, which is a branch point between synthesis of fats and glycerophospholipids. 2. In the direction of fat synthesis, the phosphate of phosphatidic acid is removed and replaced with a fatty acid, making a fat. 3. In the direction of glycerophospholipid synthesis, the phosphate is replaced by the nucleotide CDP, creating CDP-diacylglycerol (an activated form of diacylglycerol). The CDP can be readily removed and replaced by other molecules, creating phosphatides (such as phosphatidyl serine, etc.). 4. Sphingolipids are made starting with a palmitoyl-CoA and serine. The ultimate product of this reaction is the molecule called sphingosine, that we have discussed before. 5. Acetyl-CoA is the starting point for synthesis of cholesterol. The pathway overlaps with that of ketone body synthesis at first, as two acetyl-CoAs are joined to form acetoacetyl-CoA, a four carbon molecule. Addition of another 2 carbons from a third acetyl-CoA creates HMG-CoA, a six carbon molecule. The next reaction in the synthesis pathway to cholesterol is catalyzed by HMG-CoA reductase. This enzyme is the major regulatory enzyme controlling synthesis of cholesterol in the body. HMG-CoA reductase is feedback inhibited by cholesterol, the end product of the pathway. HMG-CoA reductase is also the target of cholesterol-lowering drugs called the statins, which resemble HMG-CoA. 6. From mevalonate, the following moledules are formed - isoprenes (5 carbon molecules), geranyl-pyrophosphate (contains two isoprenes), farnesyl-pyrophosphate (contains three isoprenes), squalene (contains two farnesyl-pyrophosphates, lanosterol (rearranged form of cholesterol), and (after 19 steps), cholesterol. 7. Cholesterol gives rise to the bile acids - detergent-like molecules such as cholate or glycocholate that help to emulsify fat in the digestive system. They also are precursors of the steroid hormones. 8. Pregnenolone is derived from cholesterol and is the precursor of all of the steroid hormones. These include the glucocorticoids (corticosteroids), such as cortisone, the mineralocorticoids, such as aldosterone, the androgens, such as testosterone, and the estrogens, such as estragen/estradiol. Among the sex hormones, the male hormones (androgens) are precursors of the female hormones (estrogens). The enzyme that catalyzes this conversion is known as an aromatase. Since some tumors are stimulated by estrogen, strategies for treating them involve the use of aromatase inhibitors to cease the production of estrogens. 9. Movement of lipids in the body occurs via lipoprotein complexes (contain lipids and protein) in the bloodstream. These start beingcarried out of the digestive system in large molecules called chylomicrons. Chylomicrons enter the blood stream from the lymph system. In the blood stream, chylomicrons move to the capillaries, where they are digested by cellular lipase enzymes. The result of this action is to reduce the chylomicron size, creating chylomicron remnants. These exit the capllaries and move to the liver. 10. The liver serves as the major organ regulating the formation and release of lipoprotein complexes (VLDLs, IDLs, LDLs). The liver accomplishes this by monitoring the concentration of complexes. As the concentration increases (indicating reduced uptake by target cells), the liver slows the release of complexes. As the concentration decreases (indicating increased uptake), the liver releases more VLDLs. People with deficiencies in the LDL receptor protein on the liver cells tend to have high concentrations of LDLs. They have a genetic disease known as familial hypercholsterolemia.

Estrogen: How to Balance Hormones with Proper Food & Vitamins- Thomas DeLauer
 
08:14
Estrogen: How to Balance Hormones with Proper Food & Vitamins- Thomas DeLauer How do we balance estrogen and testosterone in our bodies and how do we know which estrogens are good or bad? You can check out more at http://www.ThomasDeLauer.com Estrogens are a group of hormones present in both women and men. Functions include: Puberty changes in women Fertility Plays a role in controlling cholesterol levels Helps bone health Affects the brain, including mood Also affects the heart, skin and other body tissues Affects heart and blood vessels In males, the maturation of sperm and labido maintenance Estrogen is produced by the ovaries, fat tissue, testis and adrenal glands. There are three kinds of estrogen: Estradiol - the primary kind of estrogen found in women during their fertile years Primarily produced in the ovaries, but also the placenta and adrenal glands Excess estradiol is implicated in many diseases, such as cancers and fibroids Found in both women and men Estriol - the estrogen associated with pregnancy A waste product of estrogen metabolism Estrone - the estrogen produced postmenopause Produced in tissues throughout the body, mainly fat and muscle tissues Known as the weakest form of estrogen Found in both women and men Estrogen levels change: Throughout the month when fertile, with peak estrogen in the middle of a woman’s menstrual cycle, signalling ovulation, and the lowest levels while bleeding. Estrogen levels drop after menopause. Problems can arise when your body produces too much or too little estrogen Too little - symptoms: Women Irregular periods Mood swings Loss of sexual desire Trouble sleeping Hot flashes Headaches Men Excess adipose tissue around the midsection Low sexual desire Too little causes: Anorexia Extreme exercise Medications Hypogonadism Post-childbirth Too much - symptoms: Women Irregular periods Weight gain Fatigue Low sex drive Depression and anxiety More intense premenstrual pain Cysts Men Erectile dysfunction Female characteristics, such as breasts Prostate enlargement and cancer Low sex drive Depression Fatigue Weight gain Too much causes: Obesity Puberty Diabetes Pregnancy High blood pressure Ovarian or adrenal gland tumors Medications When estrogen is broken down through aerobic metabolism, it can be broken into “good” or “bad” estrogen metabolites. The good metabolites, 2-hydroxyestrone (2-OHE), are estrogen antagonists. They have high antioxidant activity, providing protection for the heart and brain. The bad metabolites, 16-hydroxyestrone (16-OHE), are estrogen agonists. They have been implicated in causing cancer and weight gain. Therapies that increase the 2-OHE:16-OHE ratio are thought to decrease the risk for a number of estrogen-responsive cancers. Natural compounds found in food have been founds to be antiestrogenic and thus are being further explored to discover how to capture these benefits for possible cancer prevention and treatment. DIM (Diindolylmethane) DIM is a stable compound derived from the plant indole I3C (indole-3-carbinol) found in cruciferous vegetables. Dietary indoles found in cruciferous veggies such as broccoli and cabbage, have been found to exhibit chemoprotective and chemotherapeutic properties against many cancers. Its benefit has to do with hormone balancing. I3C has been found to decrease estrogen signaling and alter estrogen metabolism, leading to a reduced production of “bad” estrogen metabolites. DIM consumption has been linked to an increase in the production of the “good” estrogen metabolites and thus a resulting decrease in the production of the “bad” estrogen metabolites. -Increases the 2-OHE:16-OHE ratio One study on women with thyroid proliferative disease (TPD) found that supplemental DIM enhanced estrogen metabolism in such a way as to act as a dietary antiestrogenic supplement and in this way may decrease the likelihood of women to develop TPD. DIM has other hormone balancing properties and can contribute to more balanced hormones. -This more beneficial hormone balance can lead to a healthier metabolism The hormonal balance influence of DIM also positively impacts testosterone. For men, this estrogen metabolism has the added benefit of freeing up testosterone in the body. Free testosterone is important for mood, energy and labido. References: 1.

What causes High Cholesterol?
 
09:50
What causes High Cholesterol? Cholesterol is both good and bad. At normal levels, it is an essential substance for the body. However, if concentrations in the blood get too high, it becomes a silent danger that puts people at risk of heart attack. Cholesterol is found in every cell of the body and has important natural functions when it comes to digesting foods, producing hormones, and generating vitamin D. It is manufactured by the body but can also be taken in from food. It is waxy and fat-like in appearance. There are two types of cholesterol; LDL (low-density lipoproteins, bad cholesterol) and HDL (high-density lipoproteins, good cholesterol). In this video, we will explain the role of cholesterol. We will also discuss the causes of high cholesterol, and its symptoms, treatment, and prevention. Fast facts on cholesterol: Cholesterol is an essential substance that is produced by the body but is also ingested from animal-derived foods. The greatest risk factors for high cholesterol are modifiable lifestyle choices - diet and exercise. Having high cholesterol does not usually produce any symptoms. If lifestyle changes are unsuccessful or cholesterol levels are very high, lipid-lowering drugs such as statins may be prescribed.

Hormones (Introduction)
 
06:57
Hormones are Chemical messengers – Endocrine Glands, they are transported by circulatory system and they Regulate physiology and behaviour. Based on chemical nature there are three hormones, Steroid Hormones, Protein Hormones and Tyrosine Derivative Hormones. Steroid Hormones are the hormones synthesized from cholesterol or its derivatives. They are Secreted by adrenal cortex – Corticosteroids. Protein Hormones are also called Peptide hormones, they are Water soluble – Act on the surface via second messengers. They are Secreted as Prohormones. They are Secreted by Pituitary gland, Parathyroid glands, Pancreas and Placenta. Tyrosine Derivative Hormones are Derived from amino acid Tyrosine, Thyroid hormones involves 3 or 4 iodine atoms, Catecholamines - Epinephrine and Norepinephrine.

Photosynthesis is a process in plants and some bacteria that use energy from the light of the sun to synthesize glucose using carbon dioxide and water as starting reagents. It accomplishes this in a multistep process that is divided into two phases, called the light reactions (require light) and the dark reactions (don't require light). 2. Photosynthesis occurs in plants in organelles called chloroplasts. The thylakoid disks of the chloroplast are the sites where the light reactions of photosynthesis and the stroma is the location of the dark reactions.

The basic structure of a steroid molecule is a 4-ring system called the steroid nucleus. There are three 6-membered rings and one 5-membered ring connected together in such a way that the overall structure is nearly flat and planar. All steroids have the basic steroid nucleus of the A, B, C, and D rings, but they all vary slightly from one to the next. Steroids function as membrane components and as signaling molecules, namely hormones. The major sterol in animals is cholesterol. It is amphipathic, with the four hydrophobic rings and a polar hydroxyl group attached to the A ring. Due to its amphipathic nature, it can be a membrane component. In fact, cholesterol plays an important role in maintaining optimal membrane fluidity. It's also important as a precursor to the other steroids. The numbering system and its importance in understanding enzyme names is discussed briefly in the video. Bile acids are steroids that emulsify dietary fats, which allows for further breakdown of fats. The example mentioned in the video is taurocholic acid. Two key sex steroids are 1) testosterone and 2) estradiol. Testosterone, the male sex steroid, is made in the testes and contains a ketone. Hence its name. Estradiol, the female sex steroid, is made in the ovaries an contains two alcohol groups. Two corticosteroids (so named because they are made in the adrenal cortex) are 1) cortisol and 2) aldosterone. Cortisol is a glucocorticoid (so named because of its effect on blood glucose levels) that functions as a stress hormone. Aldosterone is a mineralocorticoid so named because of its effect on mineral concentration - specifically Na+. The last example discussed is prednisone, a synthetic corticosteroid that is used to treat inflammation (I made a few mistakes with what I said in the video). It is an immunosuppressant drug, which is an important thing for health professionals to consider when thinking about whether or not to use the drug to treat a patient. Steroid hormones, in general, are important as signaling molecules. They act by making their way inside the cell, binding either a cytosolic or nuclear receptor, and then exert their effects by altering gene transcription.

The 6 Keys To Healing Your MS!
 
26:18
6-KEYS TO HEALING MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS (MS)!!! #1: PREGNENOLONE! PREGNENOLONE MAKES UP THE MYELIN SHEATH!!! HAS ANY DOCTOR EVER TESTED YOUR PREGNENOLONE??? Pregnenolone is VERY important for brain function because it is the FAT that makes up the brain (especially, the cerebellum) so it BOOSTS cognitive and overall brain function. With normal levels of pregnenolone, you can expect improved memory and learning capacity. Pregnenolone stimulates sleep! Again, it is VERY important for your nerves because it makes up the myelin sheath!!! (see "Benefits of Pregnenolone below!) You NEED cholesterol because it allows your body to make hormones! Your body uses cholesterol to make pregnenolone. Pregnenolone is THE MOTHER HORMONE of which ALL other hormones are made (estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol, DHEA, etc). The PROBLEM is that doctors do not know how to properly test for pregnenolone and even if they did, they don't know how to DOSE it for the MS patient!!! We also analyze 36-different hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, and cortisol along with all of their metabolites! Oxidative stress markers are also included! Find out how we address serious hormonal issues NATURALLY! #2: COMPLETE GENETIC TESTING!! Genetic mutations can affect brain chemicals (serotonin, dopamine, and GABA), Hormone levels, Organ Function (heart, liver, kidney, lung and stomach) and Vit D levels to name just a few! Learn how we successfully address these genetic mutations with our specific nutritional protocols! Go to www.drjgeneticsupport.com and watch the video on how genetic testing will HELP YOU! #3: COMPLETE BLOOD WORK! A Complete Metabolic Panel to check your blood sugar, HA1C, kidney, adrenal, liver, gall bladder, and gut function...A Complete Thyroid Panel with 9-thyroid markers...A Complete Lipid Panel...A CBC with Auto Diff to measure red and white blood cells....Complete Inflammation Markers...Vit D levels and many others. Discover how we successfully address all of the blood work abnormals NATURALLY! #4: COMPLETE TRIGGER TESTING! MS is autoimmune so what is causing your immmune system to attack your brain and myelin sheath? Is it an underlying infection (parasitic, viral, bacterial, fungus/mold, etc.), heavy metal toxicity, or chemicals. Trigger testing will reveal what is the underlying cause. #5: LIFESTYLE AND DIET! MS patients need to consume an anti-inflammatory diet! We highly recommend an autoimmune-paleo diet! You need to eliminate all grains, dairy, soy, and refind sugar for at least 6-months to allow your body to heal! #6: STEM CELL THERAPY! Stem cell therapy alone doesn't help the MS patient! You NEED ALL of the comprehensive testing that we have listed above IN ADDITION to stem cell therapy! Stem cells are blank cells that can turn into any other cell or tissue in the body. Please go to our website, www.optimalhealthstemcell.com and watch our video, "Stem Cell Therapy and MS." BENIFITS OF PREGNENOLONE: Enhance memory (it is the major fat in the brain) Repair the myelin sheath membrane that protects the brain and nervous system and nerve cells Enhances and improves lung capacity Enhance DHEA levels without side effects Immune Enhancement Kidney, lymph and liver enhancement Anticancer Antidepressant Increased energy Life Extension Cognitive Enhancement Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease Balance estrogen levels Increase resistance to stress Reduced fatigue, increase endurance Improves well-being Repair of enzymes in rheumatoid and lupus arthritis Reduced exophthalmia in Graves' disease patients Protection from cortisone toxicity Control of certain cyclic seizures Sleep Aid PMS – helps with pre-menstrual syndrome Increased libido, sex drive I will ask it again....HAS ANY DOCTOR EVER TESTED YOUR PREGNENOLONE??? INVESTMENT: We charge $15,000 for 3-rounds of adipose-derived stem cell therapy where many clinics charge that for one round. We offer healthcare financing through Care Credit and some of our patients have used www.gofundme.com. FDA APPROVAL: The FDA approves medications and devices. It DOES NOT approve procedures performed by licensed healthcare professionals! The FDA does have specific guidelines for cell therapy and we are compliant with all of them!

Levels and ranges In adults, total cholesterol levels less than 200 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) are considered healthy. A reading between 200 and 239 mg/dL is borderline high. A reading of 240 mg/dL and above is considered high. LDL cholesterol levels should be less than 100 mg/dL. 100–129 mg/dL is acceptable for people with no health problems but may be a concern for anyone with heart disease or heart disease risk factors. 130—159 mg/dL is borderline high. 160–189 mg/dL is high. 190 mg/dL or higher is considered very high. HDL levels should be kept higher. The optimal reading for HDL levels is of 60 mg/dL or higher. A reading of less than 40 mg/dL is considered a major risk factor for heart disease. A reading from 41 mg/dL to 59 mg/dL is bo Cholesterol in foods a piece of salmon Oily fish like salmon has been shown to actively decrease cholesterol. A report from Harvard Health has identified "11 cholesterol lowering foods" that actively decrease cholesterol levels: oats barley and whole grains beans eggplant and okra nuts vegetable oil (canola, sunflower) fruits (mainly apples, grapes, strawberries, and citrus) soy and soy-based foods fatty fish (particularly salmon, tuna, and sardines) foods rich in fiber Adding these to a balanced diet can help keep cholesterol in check. The same report also lists foods that are bad for cholesterol levels, including: red meat full-fat dairy margarine hydrogenated oils baked goods Causes of high cholesterol High cholesterol is a major risk factor for coronary heart disease, a cause of heart attacks. Reducing blood lipid levels may lower cardiovascular risk. A build-up of cholesterol is part of the process that narrows arteries, called atherosclerosis, in which plaques form and cause restriction of blood flow. Reducing intake of fat in the diet helps manage cholesterol levels. In particular, it is helpful to limit foods that contain: Cholesterol - from animal foods, meat, and cheese. Saturated fat - found in some meats, dairy products, chocolate, baked goods, deep-fried, and processed foods. Trans fats - found in some fried and processed foods. Being overweight or obese can also lead to higher blood LDL levels. Genetics can contribute to high cholesterol - very high LDL levels are found in the inherited condition familial hypercholesterolemia. Abnormal cholesterol levels can also arise due to other conditions, including: diabetes liver or kidney disease polycystic ovary syndrome pregnancy and other conditions that increase levels of female hormones underactive thyroid gland drugs that increase LDL cholesterol and decrease HDL cholesterol (progestins, anabolic steroids, and corticosteroids) https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/9152.php hat causes high cholesterol? Last updated Mon 27 November 2017 By Markus MacGill Reviewed by Daniel Murrell, MD Causes Symptoms Diet Levels and ranges Prevention Treatment Complications Cholesterol is both good and bad. At normal levels, it is an essential substance for the body. However, if concentrations in the blood get too high, it becomes a silent danger that puts people at risk of heart attack. Cholesterol is found in every cell of the body and has important natural functions when it comes to digesting foods, producing hormones, and generating vitamin D. It is manufactured by the body but can also be taken in from food. It is waxy and fat-like in appearance. There are two types of cholesterol; LDL (low-density lipoproteins, bad cholesterol) and HDL (high-density lipoproteins, good cholesterol). In this article, we will explain the role of cholesterol. We will also discuss the causes of high cholesterol, and its symptoms, treatment, and prevention. Fast facts on cholesterol: Cholesterol is an essential substance that is produced by the body but is also ingested from animal-derived foods. The greatest risk factors for high cholesterol are modifiable lifestyle choices - diet and exercise. Having high cholesterol does not usually produce any symptoms. If lifestyle changes are unsuccessful or cholesterol levels are very high, lipid-lowering drugs such as statins may be prescribed. What is cholesterol? man with unhealthy burger High cholesterol has a number of causes, including dietary choices. Cholesterol is an oil-based substance and does not mix with the blood, which is water-based. It is carried around the body by lipoproteins. Two types of lipoprotein carry the parcels of cholesterol: Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) - cholesterol carried by this type is known as "bad" cholesterol. High-density lipoprotein (HDL) - cholesterol carried by this type is known as "good" cholesterol. Cholesterol has four primary functions, without which we could not survive, these are: contributing to the structure of cell walls making up digestive bile acids in the intestine allowing the body to produce vitamin D enabling the body to make certain hormones

Omega 7: The Forgotten Fat
 
05:36
Click Here to Subscribe: http://Bit.ly/ThomasVid Website: http://ThomasDeLauer.com Omega 7: The Forgotten Fat - Thomas DeLauer Omega-7 fatty acids: ● Monounsaturated fatty acids ● Found in macadamia nuts, cold-water fatty fish (salmon, sardines, tuna, trout) and sea buckthorn berries (a fruit). ● Palmitoleic acid is a type of omega-7 fatty acid that has been shown in many studies to be good for our health ● Acts through many pathways to prevent disease ○ Acts as a lipokine, a hormone-like molecule, to promote proper metabolism Omega-7 fatty acids are believed to: 1. Improve insulin sensitivity 2. Fight inflammation in the body 3. Protect cardiovascular health 4. Help people lose weight through controlling hunger and appetite All of the above point to how palmitoleic acid helps with metabolic syndrome Metabolic syndrome is a group of risk factors that raise your chance of diseases such as heart disease, type-2 diabetes and stroke. These risk factors include: 1. Abdominal fat - having a large midsection 2. High triglycerides 3. Low HDL level 4. High blood pressure 5. High blood sugar **Best study** A study published in the Journal of Clinical Lipidology in 2014 conducted a randomized, placebo-controlled study of palmitoleic acid supplementation versus a placebo on subjects with systemic inflammation and dyslipidemia for 30 days. The results were impressive! As compared to the control group, the experimental group: ● Reduced C-reactive protein (a marker of inflammation) ● Decreased triglycerides ● Decreased LDL ● Increased HDL 1. Insulin Sensitivity and Type-2 Diabetes and Heart Disease Type-2 diabetes is a cluster of metabolic diseases that results from problems with insulin secretion and/or action. Different fatty acids have been found to have differing effects on glucose and lipid metabolism as well as insulin sensitivity. As a general rule: ● Saturated fats contribute to insulin resistance ● Unsaturated fats counter insulin resistance Palmitoleic acid has been found to: ● Prevent beta-cell apoptosis (cell death of insulin-producing cells) that is caused by glucose and saturated fats ● Improve plasma lipid profile (beneficial for both heart health and diabetes) ○ Human study: One study took mildly hypercholesterolemic men and women and compared a control group with a group that consumed macadamia nuts for 5 weeks. Compared to the control group, the experimental group experienced a reduction of both total and LDL-cholesterol levels. ● Functions as an adipose tissue-derived lipid hormone, stimulating insulin action in muscle cells and suppressing fatty liver disease ○ What this means is that muscle cells use palmitoleic acid to communicate with organs, regulating systemic metabolic homeostasis 2. Inflammation A study looked at 20 participants with ulcerative colitis (UC), a disease marked by inflammation, and had ½ of the subjects take palmitoleic acid and the other half a placebo. This study found that after 8 weeks the palmitoleic acid group experienced decreased inflammatory activity measured by inflammatory markers. 3. Heart Health Studies above showed the ability to raise HDL and lower LDL. Also supports proper endothelial function. 4. Weight Loss/Appetite A 2013 study on rats found that consuming palmitoleic acid, as compared to other kinds of fats and a control, led to decreased food intake. In this study, consumption of palmitoleic acid was found to increase the levels of a hormone linked to satiety called cholecystokinin. References 1.

CYC/MD: Cholesterol
 
31:18
Cholesterol is a chemical compound that the body requires as a building block for cell membranes and for hormones like estrogen and testosterone. The liver produces about 80% of the body's cholesterol and the rest comes from dietary sources. Foods derived from plants contain no cholesterol. If you want to know more, watch this episode of CYC/MD

6-SECRETS TO HEALING MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS (MS) THAT YOUR NEUROLOGIST DOESN’T WANT YOU TO KNOW!!!
 
10:58
6-SECRETS TO HEALING MS THAT YOUR NEUROLOGIST DOESN’T WANT YOU TO KNOW!!! 1: STEM CELL THERAPY 2: FUNCTIONAL NEUROLOGY 3: GENETIC TESTING 4: HOMEOPATHY 5: COMPLETE BLOOD WORK 6: DIET AND LIFESTYLE WATCH THIS REVOLUTIONARY, GROUND BREAKING VIDEO NOW! WHAT MAKES THE OPTIMAL HEALTH STEM CELL AND WELLNESS INSTITUTE DIFFERENT FROM EVERY OTHER STEM CELL CLINIC? #1: REMOVAL OF UNDERLYING INFECTIONS AND CHEMICALS! THIS IS A MUST! We have specific protocols to remove underlying infections and chemicals from the body. Many chronic pain or chronic disease patients have infections or chemicals still lodged in the body that are at the root cause of their condition. Our specific protocols help to eliminate them. No other stem cell clinic has our protocols! This is why there are failures with chronic pain or disease and stem cell therapy, The infections or chemicals that CAUSED the condition in the first place are not being removed from the body! #2: COMPLETE BLOOD WORK! Complete blood work to reduce underlying infections, chemicals and inflammation! We do a Complete Metabolic Panel (blood sugar, liver, adrenal, gut, kidney and gall bladder function.) a CBC with auto diff (breaks down the red and white blood cells), a compete Lipid Panel (cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL, LDL, and Cholesterol/HDL ratio) and a complete Thyroid Panel (your thyroid DRIVES your metabolism...TSH, Free T3, Free T4, Total T4, Free Thyroixine Index or FTI, T3 Uptake, TPO or ATA, TGB or ATG, TBG or Thyroxine Binding Globulin and Reverse T3). #3: COMPLETE HORMONE TESTING! You NEED cholesterol because it allows your body to make hormones! Your body uses cholesterol to make pregnenolone. Pregnenolone is THE MOTHER HORMONE of which ALL other hormones are made (estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol, DHEA, etc). Pregnenolone is VERY important for brain function because it is the FAT that makes up the brain so it BOOSTS cognitive function. With normal levels of pregnenolone, you can expect improved memory and learning capacity. Pregnenolone stimulates sleep and if your cholesterol is too high, it lowers cholesterol! It is VERY important for your nerves because it makes up the myelin sheath. This is WHY hormone testing from www.dutchtest.com and blood work is VERY IMPORTANT because it will help the patient heal faster! #4: PLATELET RICH PLASMA OR PRP! We use PRP with a nebulizer as a home therapy to help the stem cells heal the body and reduce inflammation! This is especially helpful with lung disease patients. We also may use it with other chronic disease patients. #5: INTRATHECAL INJECTIONS! We use intrathecal injections into the spine with chronic neurological patients like MS, Parkinson’s and stroke rehab patients. An intrathecal injection allows the stem cells to cross the blood-brain barrier. Having the stem cells cross the blood-brain barrier helps the neurological patient to heal faster! #6: ALL 3-STEM CELL PROTOCOLS! We are familiar with ALL 3-Stem Cell Therapy Protocols…amniotic, adipose, and bone marrow! To be frank, we have found through using stem cell therapy on hundreds of patients that adipose or fat derived stem cell therapy is by far the best! #7: HIGH NUMBER OF ADMINISTERED STEM CELLS! Extremely High Number of IV administered Stem Cells! 60 ml = 2 million stem cells! #8: HIGHLY TRAINED STAFF! Our staff is highly trained! We continue to go to conferences and seminars to implement the latest advances. #9: GENETIC TESTING! We do Genetic Testing! Please go to www.drjgeneticsupport.com and watch the video! #10: FOUR -POINT THERAPY PROGRAM! Include our 4-Point Therapy Program! Go to www.drj4pointtherapyprogram.com. PEMF, laser therapy and Hako-Med therapy help the stem cells grow (proliferate) and turn into other cells (differentiate) #11: COMPOUNDING PHARMACY! We use a compounding pharmacy for our specific patient needs! Whether for LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone) or a topical cream to reduce pain, specific formulas can be produced for the patient! Our compounding pharmacy is one of top compounding pharmacies in the country, Home Town Pharmacy in Sun Prairie, WI. www.hometownpharmacy.com #12: ACUPUNCTURE! Acupuncture has been shown to help stem cells grow and turn into other cells. Our on-site acupuncturist uses a specific type of acupuncture to allow stem cells to grow and differentiate. #13: IV THERAPY! We use IV therapy to infuse vital nutrients like glutathione (the body’s master anti-oxidant) and other essential vitamins and minerals. IV therapy will bypass barriers to absorption and supercharge the body with therapeutic levels of healing nutrients. .

Lipids - Structure Of Lipids - Structure Of Fats - Triglycerides, Phospholipids, Prostaglandins
 
04:59
In this video we cover the molecular structure of lipids or fats. We discuss the structure of triglyceride molecules, the structure of phospholipid molecules, and the structure of prostaglandins. Lipid structure Lipids or fats are composed mainly of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. However, lipids contain a lower proportion of oxygen atoms than do carbohydrates. Some lipids contain other elements such as nitrogen and phosphorus. Most lipids do not dissolve in water because they are non polar, meaning that electrons are shared equally in the molecule. So, they have no partially charged regions in the molecule. The main types of lipids include triglycerides or fats, phospholipids, steroids, and prostaglandins. Triglycerides are the most plentiful lipid in the body and they are composed of 2 building blocks, a glycerol unit, and 3 fatty acids. A glycerol molecule has 3 carbon atoms, with each bonded to 2 hydrogen atoms, a hydroxyl group, which is an oxygen bonded to a hydrogen, and the fourth bond being to another carbon atom. Fatty acids are made up of long chains of carbon atoms and hydrogen atoms. Some carbon atoms are linked by single bonds, and others by double bonds. These bonds determine which type of fatty acid the molecule is classified as. There are 2 types of fatty acids, saturated fatty acids, and unsaturated fatty acids, which include monounsaturated fatty acids, polyunsaturated fatty acids and trans fatty acids. We will cover fatty acid molecules in depth in (the next) a separate video. In the formation of a triglyceride, the fatty acids bond with the glycerol molecule. The 3 fatty acids attach by their carboxyl groups, which are the carbon, oxygen, oxygen, hydrogen group, at the end of the molecule to the hydroxyl, OH groups of the glycerol molecule. As this process takes place, 3 molecules of water are removed, which is a dehydration synthesis reaction. Some triglycerides contain 3 molecules of the same type of fatty acid, and others may have 3 different types of fatty acids. Triglycerides are found in many food items such as vegetable oils, coconut oil, beef, fast foods, many seeds and avocados. Phospholipids are similar in structure to triglycerides in that they have 4 subunits. They are composed of a glycerol unit, 2 fatty acids, a phosphate group, and a nitrogen containing group. The phosphate and nitrogen group extend in the opposite direction of the fatty acids. This end, or head of the molecule is actually polar, so it is water soluble. Hydrophilic, meaning water loving, is the term often used to describe the head portion of a phospholipid molecule. The fatty acids end is non polar, so it is called hydrophobic, which means water fearing. This property, having a hydrophilic and a hydrophobic region, allow this molecule to join, or bridge a water environment and a lipid environment. So, in water, these molecules will form bilayers, with the fatty acid tails facing each other, and the heads facing outwards as you can see here. Phospholipids are the main component of cell membranes, which we will cover in depth in another video. Steroids, which are often referred to as sterols, have a 4 hydrocarbon ring, or steroid nucleus as the foundation of their molecules. Steroids differ based on the side chains extending out from their rings. Cholesterol, whose molecular model is shown here, is an important steroid, as it has hydrophilic water loving polar region here at the hydroxyl OH end of the molecule, and hydrophobic water fearing non polar region at its hydrocarbon chain. Cholesterol is a key part of cell membranes as its polar region can interact with the polar region of phospholipids and its non polar region is embedded in the membrane along side the non polar fatty acids of the phospholipids. Cholesterol is also an important building block in bile acids, which are key in breaking down fat molecules in the body, and many hormones, which are signaling molecules the body releases. Cortisol, estrogen and testosterone are other important steroid compounds. You can see that each of these molecules differ slightly based on their side chain formation, but they all have the 4 hydrocarbon rings as the foundations of their molecules. Prostaglandins are lipids that are derived from unsaturated fatty acids. They are composed of a 20 carbon, 5 carbon ring structure. There are many different types of prostaglandins in the body, that take part in different important functions, such as enhancing the immune system and inflammatory response.

Stay Away from These Fats & Oils-Transformation TV-Episode #020
 
06:29
Dr. Josh Axe tells you exactly which oils to stay away from and why. And he gives you healthy alternatives for cooking and making your own salad dressings. Find more recipes for healthy alternatives at http://www.draxe.com Unhealthy Oils: 1. Vegetable 2. Canola 3. Cottonseed 4. Hydrogenated 5. Trans fats •Different oils have different heat thresholds. •Most oils, when heated, change molecular structure. This process, called oxidation, causes the oils to turn rancid and converts good fats into bad fats. •Every cell in the body is composed of fat, called a lipid bilayer. Therefore, in order to be healthy, it’s essential to consume good, healthy fats. Healthy Oils: 1.Olive Oil (Organic, Cold-Pressed Extra Virgin) •Olive oil is not healthy to cook with or heat at high temperatures because it oxidizes at high temperatures. •Olive oil contains healthy Omega-9, monounsaturated fats, which help balance hormones. 2. Grapeseed Oil (Organic) •Grapeseed oil is a healthy oil to cook with because it has a higher heat threshold. It does not oxidize at high temperatures. •Grapeseed oil contains healthy Omega-9 monounsaturated fats, which help balance hormones. 3. Coconut Oil (Unrefined, Expeller-Pressed) •Coconut oil is a healthy saturated fat that contains lauric acid, which is a medium-chain triglyceride that helps the body burn fat and lose weight. •Coconut oil is a healthy oil to cook with because it has a high heat threshold and does not oxidize at high temperatures. 4. Organic/Raw Butter (Grass-Fed ) •Organic butter is a healthy saturated fat that contains CLA, conjugated linoleic acid, which helps the body burn fat and lose weight. 5. Ghee (Organic, Grass-Fed) •Ghee is a clarified butter derived from India. ◦The protein is removed, so it is often more tolerated by those who are casein intolerant. Action Steps: 1. Eliminate unhealthy oils from your kitchen. 2. Find healthy oils in your local grocery store or health food store. 3. Read food labels. ◦Avoid: ◾Vegetable ◾Canola ◾Cottonseed ◾Hydrogenated ◾Trans fats ◦Look for: ◾Olive Oil ◾Grapeseed Oil ◾Coconut Oil ◾Organic, Grass-Fed Butter ◾Organic, Grass-Fed Ghee For more health, fitness, and nutrition tips, visit: http://draxe.com/ *This content is strictly the opinion of Dr. Josh Axe, and is for informational and educational purposes only.

Rich Piana on Carbs VS Steroids: Rich Piana shares his 2 cents on Carbs VS Steroids. Rich Piana, is a former professional bodybuilder, is still a huge mass monster and usually weighs between 250-315 lbs. For a long time, he has been promoting a popular supplement company - 5% Nutrition - which helped him attract the attention of many muscle worshipers. What makes him stand apart from the rest is his massive arms, measuring way over 20 inches, tattoos and get-rich-or-die-trying attitude. He is one of the most knowledgeable and a rare feat - honest - bodybuilder out there. He has been very popular on various social media channels because of his crusade about teaching and educating young people who are looking up to body builders like him. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbohydrate A carbohydrate is a biological molecule consisting of carbon (C), hydrogen (H) and oxygen (O) atoms, usually with a hydrogen–oxygen atom ratio of 2:1 (as in water); in other words, with the empirical formula Cm(H2O)n (where m could be different from n).[1] Some exceptions exist; for example, deoxyribose, a sugar component of DNA,[2] has the empirical formula C5H10O4.[3] Carbohydrates are technically hydrates of carbon;[4] structurally it is more accurate to view them as polyhydroxy aldehydes and ketones.[5] The term is most common in biochemistry, where it is a synonym of saccharide, a group that includes sugars, starch, and cellulose. The saccharides are divided into four chemical groups: monosaccharides, disaccharides, oligosaccharides, and polysaccharides. In general, the monosaccharides and disaccharides, which are smaller (lower molecular weight) carbohydrates, are commonly referred to as sugars.[6] The word saccharide comes from the Greek word σάκχαρον (sákkharon), meaning "sugar." While the scientific nomenclature of carbohydrates is complex, the names of the monosaccharides and disaccharides very often end in the suffix -ose. For example, grape sugar is the monosaccharide glucose, cane sugar is the disaccharide sucrose, and milk sugar is the disaccharide lactose (see illustration). Carbohydrates perform numerous roles in living organisms. Polysaccharides serve for the storage of energy (e.g. starch and glycogen) and as structural components (e.g. cellulose in plants and chitin in arthropods). The 5-carbon monosaccharide ribose is an important component of coenzymes (e.g. ATP, FAD and NAD) and the backbone of the genetic molecule known as RNA. The related deoxyribose is a component of DNA. Saccharides and their derivatives include many other important biomolecules that play key roles in the immune system, fertilization, preventing pathogenesis, blood clotting, and development.[7] In food science and in many informal contexts, the term carbohydrate often means any food that is particularly rich in the complex carbohydrate starch (such as cereals, bread and pasta) or simple carbohydrates, such as sugar (found in candy, jams, and desserts). Often in lists of nutritional information, such as the USDA National Nutrient Database, the term "carbohydrate" (or "carbohydrate by difference") is used for everything other than water, protein, fat, ash, and ethanol.[8] This will include chemical compounds such as acetic or lactic acid, which are not normally considered carbohydrates. It also includes "dietary fibre" which is a carbohydrate but which does not contribute much in the way of food energy (calories), even though it is often included in the calculation of total food energy just as though it were a sugar.[9] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steroid A steroid is an organic compound with four rings arranged in a specific configuration. Examples include the dietary lipid cholesterol, the sex hormones estradiol and testosterone[2]:10–19 and the anti-inflammatory drug dexamethasone.[3] Steroids have two principal biological functions: certain steroids (such as cholesterol) are important components of cell membranes which alter membrane fluidity, and many steroids are signaling molecules which activate steroid hormone receptors. The steroid core structure is composed of seventeen carbon atoms, bonded in four "fused" rings: three six-member cyclohexane rings (rings A, B and C in the first illustration) and one five-member cyclopentane ring (the D ring). Steroids vary by the functional groups attached to this four-ring core and by the oxidation state of the rings. Sterols are forms of steroids with a hydroxyl group at position three and a skeleton derived from cholestane.[4][1]:1785f [5] They can also vary more markedly by changes to the ring structure (for example, ring scissions which produce secosteroids such as vitamin D3). Hundreds of steroids are found in plants, animals and fungi. All steroids are manufactured in cells from the sterols lanosterol (animals and fungi) or cycloartenol (plants). Lanosterol and cycloartenol are derived from the cyclization of the triterpene squalene.[6]

Hair Loss prevention diet:  Avoid saturated fats
 
10:36
Visit: ►►► http://endhairloss.eu Hair Loss prevention diet avoid saturated fats I will tell you the fats to include in your diet if your hair is thinning and which fats you should not have. There are some fats that can increase cholesterol rquickly and the risk of some specific diseases, while good fats protect the health of your body and hair. First, a basic but extremely important concept for your hair: in our body there is a hormone called DHT - this is derived from Testosterone. If it’s in excess on our scalp, it can be quite aggressive the hair, attacking the follicles, making hair finer and smaller until you go totally bald. One type of this hormone is made in the sebaceous glands while the other type is produced in the hair follicles, and if you want to save your hair, you should reduce both. In this video you will learn how to reduce the "sebaceous DHT" through diet. For this matter it is important to be aware of the type of fats that we eat, in fact harmful fats will increase dht while good fats will give benefits to your hair follicles. Good fats will also improve blood circulation (something really good for the hair follicles) The fats to avoid for an anti hair loss diet are called saturated fats, and they come from foods like fat meat, salami, fat cheeese and fried food. These fats increase cholesterol, decrease blood flow and clog the internal side of veins and artheries. That's why you want to avoid them. Beef and lamb fat are bad, while pork fat is not, remember! Bad fat will irritate the hair follicles through blood flow and skin will become even more oily, increasing the risk of hair fall. They are contained in different fishes, fish oil, nuts legumes, beans, corn, and other green leaf veggies. This is one of the best hair loss prevention diets. Well watch the full video for the details, and dont forget to visit our home page http://endhairloss.eu if you want to watch the intro videos of our stop hair loss program.

5 Easy Ways To Boost Your Testosterone Naturally For Greater Muscle Growth
 
04:50
Testosterone boosting tricks that will add lean muscle fast: http://sixpackshortcuts.com/rd2Bc Hey guys what up it’s Nate here today to give you my top 5 tips for BOOSTING your testosterone levels naturally. Testosterone is what makes you a man. It makes you attractive to women, powers your sex drive, helps build and maintain muscle, shed off excess weight and has even been linked to one's ambition and success. -- Video Breakdown: 0:28 - The interesting thing is that “normal levels” of testosterone can range from 348ng/dl – 1197ng/dl. This means that some men can naturally produce 3x more testosterone and still be considered normal. If you are interested in fitness, you need to be on the high end of that range… and here’s HOW: 0:46 - Tip 1.) SLEEP! A lack of quality sleep can dramatically diminish the amount of testosterone your body produces, thereby reducing muscle growth and fat loss! Research has demonstrated that the amount of sleep you get is associated with morning testosterone levels. Researchers at the University of Chicago recorded the sleeping patterns of healthy men and found that participants' testosterone levels increased the longer they slept... I recommend 7-9 hours of sleep per night to optimize the testosterone response. 1:11 - Tip 2.) Lose the excess body fat: As your waist size goes up, your testosterone goes down. The more fat you have on you body the more armotrase you produce, which will causes your body to convert testosterone into estrogen. 1:30 - Tip 3.) Don’t completely avoid cholesterol: Testosterone is derived from cholesterol, so it should come as no surprise that if your diet is lacking in cholesterol, you're also more than likely shortchanging yourself when it comes to the muscle-building hormone… Try incorporating small portions of lean red meat, whole eggs or seafood like shrimp or lobster 2:13 - Tip 4.) Add Multi-Joint movements to your workout routine: Essentially, the more muscle mass you stimulate, the more testosterone you'll secrete. A recent study conducted on trained subjects showed that squats stimulated a greater testosterone response when compared to leg presses. Stick with multi-joint exercises like squats, bench presses, and deadlifts—as they are prime examples of the kinds of compound lifts that'll help significantly jack up your testosterone levels! 2:54 - Tip 5.) Limit Your Alcohol intake: Happy hour can wreak havoc on your manly hormones. In a recent Dutch study, men who drank moderate amounts of alcohol daily for 3 weeks experienced a 7 percent decrease in their testosterone levels. Limit your drinking to one or two glasses of beer or wine a night to avoid a drop in T. Keith Klien at the Institute of Eating Management is my go to for the diet tonic water hack! 3:44 - There you have it guys - my 5 tips to boost your t-levels inside and outside of the gym… Keep it here NEXT WEEK for my next video where I share with you guys the secrets behind getting BIG on a budget.

The 6 Keys To Ultimate Hashimoto's Healing
 
26:42
6-KEYS TO ULTIMATE HASHMOTO'S HEALING! #1: PREGNENOLONE! PREGNENOLONE IS THE "MOTHER" HORMONE OF WHICH ALL OTHER HORMONES ARE MADE!! Discover in this video how Dr. Johnson correlates how important pregnenolone is to the Hashimoto's patient! HAS ANY DOCTOR EVER TESTED YOUR PREGNENOLONE??? Pregnenolone is VERY important for brain function because it is the FAT that makes up the brain (especially, the cerebellum) so it BOOSTS cognitive and overall brain function. With normal levels of pregnenolone, you can expect improved memory and learning capacity. Pregnenolone stimulates sleep and it increases energy! It is VERY important for your nerves because it makes up the myelin sheath so it helps relieve pain!!! (see "Benefits of Pregnenolone below!) You NEED cholesterol because it allows your body to make hormones! Your body uses cholesterol to make pregnenolone. Pregnenolone is THE MOTHER HORMONE of which ALL other hormones are made (estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol, DHEA, etc). The PROBLEM is that doctors do not know how to properly test for pregnenolone and even if they did, they don't know how to DOSE it for the Hashimoto's patient!!! We also analyze 36-different hormones such as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, and cortisol along with all of their metabolites! Oxidative stress markers are also included! Find out how we address serious hormonal issues NATURALLY! #2: COMPLETE GENETIC TESTING!! Genetic mutations can affect brain chemicals (serotonin, dopamine, and GABA), Hormone levels, Organ Function (heart, liver, kidney, lung and stomach) and Vit D levels to name just a few! Learn how we successfully address these genetic mutations with our specific nutritional protocols! Go to www.ohhashimotosuccess.com and watch the video "The Thyroid Answer" on how genetic testing will HELP YOU! Also watch "You Can Beat Thyroid Disorders Naturally!" and "Stem Cell Therapy and Hashimoto's!" at www.ohhashimotosuccess.com. #3: COMPLETE BLOOD WORK! A Complete Metabolic Panel to check your blood sugar, HA1C, kidney, adrenal, liver, gall bladder, and gut function...A Complete Thyroid Panel with 9-thyroid markers...A Complete Lipid Panel...A CBC with Auto Diff to measure red and white blood cells....Complete Inflammation Markers...Vit D levels and many others. Discover how we successfully address all of the blood work abnormals NATURALLY! #4: COMPLETE TRIGGER TESTING! MS is autoimmune so what is causing your immmune system to attack your brain and myelin sheath? Is it an underlying infection (parasitic, viral, bacterial, fungus/mold, etc.), heavy metal toxicity, or chemicals. Trigger testing will reveal what is the underlying cause. #5: LIFESTYLE AND DIET! Hashimoto's patients need to consume an anti-inflammatory diet! We highly recommend an autoimmune-paleo diet! You need to eliminate all grains, dairy, soy, and refind sugar for at least 6-months to allow your body to heal! #6: STEM CELL THERAPY! Stem cell therapy alone doesn't help the Hashimoto's patient! You NEED ALL of the comprehensive testing that we have listed above IN ADDITION to stem cell therapy! Stem cells are blank cells that can turn into any other cell or tissue in the body. Please go to our website, www.ohhashimotosuccess.com and watch our video, "Stem Cell Therapy and Hashimoto's." I will ask it again....HAS ANY DOCTOR EVER TESTED YOUR PREGNENOLONE??? INVESTMENT: We charge $15,000 for 3-rounds of adipose-derived stem cell therapy where many clinics charge that for one round. We offer healthcare financing through Care Credit and some of our patients have used www.gofundme.com. Because of these 6-Keys to Ultimate Hashimoto's Healing, patients come to our office from all over the world! Please email Dr. Johnson for more information at mljohnson@askdrjohnson.com.

Why bio-identical hormones versus conventional synthetic chemically manufactured hormones? The natural hormones have identical molecular structure to human hormones. Therefore it’s safe. - Testosterone: Known as a male hormone responsible for the sex drive of both men and women, it has been shown to provide many health benefits such as increase in lean muscle mass, energy, memory, sense of well-being. Men who received testosterone replacement report that they feel sexier, stronger and healthier. It also protects against cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis… - Estrogen: A female hormone prescribed to menopausal women to alleviate symptoms, such as hot flashes, insomnia, vaginal dryness etc… It helps to protect women against heart diseases, bone loss, and uterine cancer - DHEA: Is a steroid hormone derived from cholesterol and produced by the adrenal glands. It is needed for the production of estrogen, testosterone and progesterone. Deficiency of DHEA is associated with increased mortality, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer. - Thyroid: Is a metabolic hormone secreted by thyroid glands responsible in the regulation of body temperature, metabolism and cerebral function. Thyroid hormone diminishes as we age. Replenishment of this hormone will improve metabolism, thin hair, dry skin, thin nails, brain functions, and blood levels and energy. - Progesterone: Deficiency of progesterone in menopausal women can cause uterine cancer, breast cancer, osteoporosis, and heart disease. It is as important as estrogen.

Course materials at http://oregonstate.edu/instruct/bb350 Highlights Lipids/Membranes 1. Lipids are cellular compounds that have at least some part of them that is very hydrophobic. The category includes fatty acids, triacylglycerols, sphingolipids, glycerophospholipids, steroids, and others. 2. Fatty acids are amphipathic compounds (part polar, part non-polar), consisting of a long non-polar carbon chain at one end and a polar carboxyl group at the other end. 3. Fatty acids can have all single bonds (saturated), one double bond (unsaturated) or more than one double bond (polyunsaturated). Double bonds of biological origin are almost all cis in nature. I didn't say this in class, but trans double bonds arise from hydrogenation of fats (typically in partially hydrogenated vegetable oil). 4. Fats (and oils) consist of glycerol esterified to three fatty acids. The resulting compound is very non-polar. Fats are the primary energy storage forms of animals. The different between a fat and an oil is simply that a fat is solid at room temperature, whereas an oil is liquid at room temperature. Oils will tend to have shorter fatty acids and/or less saturated fatty acids, since these features favor lowering of the melting point. 5. Enzymes that release fatty acids from fats are called lipases. 6. Fats/oils can have any combination of common saturated and unsaturated fatty acids in them. 7. Essential fatty acids are those that an organism cannot synthesize and must be in the diet. 8. Phosphoacylglycerols (glycerophospholipids or phosphoglycerides) are important components of cellular membranes (part of the lipid bilayer). They differ from fats in having a phosphate replace one of the fatty acids on the end carbon of glycerol. Addition of only a phosphate creates phosphatidic acid. In fact, phosphatidic acid is a branch point in the synthesis of fats and glycerophospholipids. 9. When a compound is esterified to the phosphate it creates a phosphatidyl compound. Example compounds attached to the phosphate on phosphatidic acid are ethanolamine (creating phosphatidylethanolamine), choline (creating phosphatidylcholine), serine (creating phosphatidylserine), and others. 10. Sphingolipids are derived from sphingosine. Cerebrosides and gangliosides are sphingolipids that are common in the membranes of brain tissue. Sphingomyelin is a sphingolipid common in the membranes of nerve tissue. Cerebrosides are sphingolipids that have only a simple sugar (usually glucose) attached to them. Gangliosides are sphingolipids that have more complex sugars attached to them. 11. Steroids are compounds with ring structures that are made from cholesterol. Steroids include sex hormones (androgens, estrogens, etc.) and in animals are derived from cholesterol. Cholesterol is an important constituent of animal membranes, giving them structural integrity.

Cholesterol is both good and bad. At normal levels, it is an essential substance for the body. However, if concentrations in the blood get too high, it becomes a silent danger that puts people at risk of heart attack. Cholesterol is found in every cell of the body and has important natural functions when it comes to digesting foods, producing hormones, and generating vitamin D. It is manufactured by the body but can also be taken in from food. It is waxy and fat-like in appearance. There are two types of cholesterol; LDL (low-density lipoproteins, bad cholesterol) and HDL (high-density lipoproteins, good cholesterol). In this article, we will explain the role of cholesterol. We will also discuss the causes of high cholesterol, and its symptoms, treatment, and prevention. Cholesterol is an essential substance that is produced by the body but is also ingested from animal-derived foods. The greatest risk factors for high cholesterol are modifiable lifestyle choices - diet and exercise. Having high cholesterol does not usually produce any symptoms. If lifestyle changes are unsuccessful or cholesterol levels are very high, lipid-lowering drugs such as statins may be prescribed. what is cholesterol ? High cholesterol has a number of causes, including dietary choices. Cholesterol is an oil-based substance and does not mix with the blood, which is water-based. It is carried around the body by lipoproteins. Two types of lipoprotein carry the parcels of cholesterol: Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) - cholesterol carried by this type is known as "bad" cholesterol. High-density lipoprotein (HDL) - cholesterol carried by this type is known as "good" cholesterol. Cholesterol has four primary functions, without which we could not survive, these are: contributing to the structure of cell walls making up digestive bile acids in the intestine allowing the body to produce vitaminD enabling the body to make certain hormones Causes of high cholesterol ? high cholesterol is a significant risk factor for coronary heart disease and a cause of heart attacks. A build-up of cholesterol is part of the process that narrows arteries, called atherosclerosis, in which plaques form and cause restriction of blood flow. Reducing intake of fat in the diet helps manage cholesterol levels. In particular, it is helpful to limit foods that contain: Cholesterol - from animal foods, meat, and cheese. Saturated fat - found in some meats, dairy products, chocolate, baked goods, deep-fried, and processed foods. Trans fats - found in some fried and processed foods. Being overweight or obese can also lead to higher blood LDL levels. Genetics can contribute to high cholesterol - very high LDL levels are found in the inherited condition familial hypercholesterolemia. Abnormal cholesterol levels can also arise due to other conditions, including: diabetes liver or kidney disease polycystic ovary syndrome pregnancy and other conditions that increase levels of female hormones underactive thyroid gland drugs that increase LDL cholesterol and decrease HDL cholesterol (progestins, anabolic steroids, and corticosteroids) High cholesterol symptoms Having high cholesterol levels, while a risk factor for other conditions, does not itself present any signs or symptoms. Unless routinely screened through regular blood testing, high cholesterol levels will go unnoticed and could present a silent threat of heart attack or stroke. Oily fish like salmon has been shown to actively decrease cholesterol. A report from Harvard Health has identified "11 cholesterol lowering foods" that actively decrease cholesterol levels: oats barley and whole grains beans eggplant and okra nuts vegetable oil (canola, sunflower) fruits (mainly apples, grapes, strawberries, and citrus) soy and soy-based foods fatty fish (particularly salmon, tuna, and sardines) foods rich in fiber Adding these to a balanced diet can help keep cholesterol in check. The same report also lists foods that are bad for cholesterol levels, including: red meat full-fat dairy margarine hydrogenated oils baked goods Various low cholesterol recipe books are available to purchase online. Levels and ranges In adults, total cholesterol levels less than 200 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) are considered healthy. A reading between 200 and 239 mg/dL is borderline high. A reading of 240 mg/dL and above is considered high. LDL cholesterol levels should be less than 100 mg/dL. 100–129 mg/dL is acceptable for people with no health problems but may be a concern for anyone with heart disease or heart disease risk factors. 130—159 mg/dL is borderline high. 160–189 mg/dL is high. 190 mg/dL or higher is considered very high. HDL levels should be kept higher. The optimal reading for HDL levels is of 60 mg/dL or higher. A reading of less than 40 mg/dL is considered a major risk factor for heart disease. A reading from 41 mg/dL to 59 mg/dL is borderline low.
Males & Natural Progesterone
 
04:59
https://www.drlam.com/blog/analyzing-effects-of-progesterone-in-men/22258/ This is Dr. Lam from DrLam.com and the Adrenal Fatigue Center. One of the questions we’ve been asked is should men be also taking natural progesterone? That question is quite interesting because the use of natural progesterone is oftentimes related and associated with women. The question is why would a man need to consider that? Let’s take a step back. The progesterone’s main action is to oppose estrogen. Now, estrogen is a pro-growth type hormone. In the world nowadays, where we are filled with chemicals and environmental toxins and hormones, it is impossible for the woman or the man to escape hormonal exposure. These types of hormones, or what we call xenoestrogenic hormones, have molecules that are very similar to estrogen. So whether you are a man or a woman, if you take in these hormones, such as hormones from animals such as chicken or beef, chemicals such as petroleum, ingredients in shampoos and nail polish, they all have these types of chemicals. These chemicals, derived from petroleum, have a chemical structure that is very similar to estrogen. When these molecules get into the body, they behave estrogenically by sitting on the estrogen receptor sites. Now, how serious is this? It really depends on the person. Most people have the ability to get rid of it, or at least a certain level of it. But if you overflow the body day in day out with excessive amounts of estrogen or estrogenic-type compounds, as we call it xenoestrogenic compounds as we mentioned earlier, then invariably the body will have excessive estrogen whether you are male or female. Now in the female, taking natural progesterone can help not only to oppose the estrogen but also to reduce the menstrual symptoms such as endometriosis, fibroids, or PCOS and that type of stuff. In the male, the prostate gland can be vulnerable if there’s excessive amount of estrogen. Taking progesterone can be helpful and indicated with the right circumstances. Of course, the dosage and frequency are very different because the body in the male does not need the same level of estrogenic opposing as that in the female. In men, if indicated, especially for prostate issues and hormonal issues that is well documented, then the amount can be considered and is usually lower in quantity and a cream form is usually quite good. Normally, there’s no downside, especially males with clinical signs of gynecomastia, enlarged breasts, may consider these things with the right workup. But it is not something that you want to just pick up over the counter and start taking without any consideration. In the case of adrenal fatigue, then the problem is further compounded because progesterone is metabolized by the liver. If you have liver congestion, as is commonly the case in adrenal fatigue, then even a small amount of progesterone can make adrenal fatigue worse. So for the male, we don’t find that the use of natural progesterone is so indicated unless there are very specific reasons. In those cases, it has to be tracked and followed properly. The use of natural progesterone for males falls in very different parameters as compared to females. If you do it right, it can be quite beneficial especially for the prostate. At the same time, it is not something you want to embark on without the knowledge and the supervision of an adrenal fatigue and natural hormone health care specialist.

Dr. Capasso Hormone Replacement Expert Jacksonville Florida - Jax Fl.
 
02:06
http://letsgothin.com/hormones 904-694-0992 For a no-cost bioidentical hormone evaluation. In Jacksonville Florida, Dr. Anthony Capasso, expert at The Thin Centers MD Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy program can also help to improve numerous different symptoms, which may include thinning hair, wrinkling skin, hot flashes, night sweats, fatigue, insomnia, sexual dysfunction, insomnia, and porous bones. Hormones, chemicals produces with the body, are responsible for development and growth from the time we are born through puberty and the remainder of the aging process. Hormones control the chemical balance that triggers our nervous and immune systems, metabolism, reproduction, and other bodily functions. Regular hormone levels fluctuate and decline as we age. This progression can affect both men and women physically and mentally depending on the individual. Because hormones control a wide variety of functions in the body, imbalances can lead to less than optimal states of health. Bioidentical hormones are unique in that they are exact copies of the body’s own hormones, and the body cannot tell the difference between the bioidentical hormones and its own endogenous hormones. For this reason, the body can easily use the bioidentical hormones to make up for an inadequate amount of available hormones in the body. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Process In 1930, doctors developed hormone replacement supplements to alleviate the symptoms of menopause. “Bioidentical” was the very first supplement. Essentially, the molecular structure of the supplement is identical to the patients’ own molecular structures. The treatment originally addressed symptoms including weight gain, hot flashes, night sweats, and so on. Over a decade later, doctors developed synthetic hormone supplements. The widely distributed synthetic hormones of the time were not identical to the patients’ molecular structures, in contrast to bioidentical. Synthetic hormones were derived from other animals, specifically from pregnant horse urine. This hormone replacement often caused side effects including nausea, dizziness, and fluid retention. Pharmaceutical companies, such as Upjohn, have been producing bioidentical hormones for over 70 years. Bioidentical hormones are plant-derived supplements, which are usually comprised of soy and yam. Once the bioidentical powders have been manufactured, “compounding” pharmacies create topical creams according doctors’ prescription. Creams are preferred because when bioidentical hormones are taken orally they go straight to the liver, which converts them into a different hormone. Therefore the preferred method of delivery for bioidentical hormones is in the form of creams or gels or sub-cutaneous suppositories, which are absorbed directly from the skin into the bloodstream. There are many benefits and advantages to using bioidentical hormones. A key element in effective hormone replacement treatment is using the proper dosage (based on the patient’s needs). The window for the right hormone balance is narrow and varies from person to person. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy takes into account this delicate process to achieve the best possible results. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy benefits include: Weight loss Increased sex drive Hair and nail improvement Lower cholesterol Emotional balance improvement More stable mental health Increased memory ability Decreased osteoporosis risk http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estrogen#Binge_eating Binge eating Research suggests that estrogen may play a role in suppressing binge eating. Hormone replacement therapy using estrogen may be a possible treatment for binge eating behaviors in females. Estrogen replacement has been shown to suppress binge eating behaviors in female mice. The mechanism by which estrogen replacement inhibits binge-like eating involves the replacement of serotonin (5-HT) neurons. Women exhibiting binge eating behaviors are found to have increased brain uptake of neuron 5-HT, and therefore less of the neurotransmitter serotonin in the cerebrospinal fluid. Data has shown that estrogen works to activate 5-HT neurons, leading to suppression of binge like eating behaviors. At the Thin Centers MD clinic in Jacksonville Fl., Dr. Anthony Capasso, Hormone Replacement Expert, and trained in administering bioidentical hormones can work with you to relieve hormone imbalance. Providing biochemical hormones that match your molecular structure exactly will allow you to feel like you did in your younger years. If you want to live your life to its fullest, you now have the chance to do so.

Why Vegan Intermittent Fasting Is A Tactic Not A Strategy
 
07:24
Todays #askgojiman question is on vegan intermittent fasting and whether it is healthy and I explain why it should be used as a health tactic and not a strategy. Role the titles. Welcome back its good to see all your smiling faces again. If we haven’t met before then I’m goji man. Im currently finishing a masters in nutrition and qualifying as a nutritionist and next year I’m doing a phd in nutritional science. I do vegan health and nutrition vlogs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in which I answer your health and nutrition questions under the # ask goji man. So if you have a question for me then #askgojiman in the comments below and I will pick one of these for my next video. So hit that subscribe button and bell notification so you never miss any of my videos. So without further ado…..to the video. Helen Blake asks whether vegan intermittent fasting is healthy and whether it is backed by science. Great question lets get to it. Now I just want to quickly start this video and say that fasting and intermitted fasting can be both healthy and damaging for the body. Fasting goes hand in hand with detoxification and if done incorrectly for prolonged periods then it can be very dangerous for the body. Now I have done a video on detoxification, so if you are considering fasting then be sure to watch this first in order to do it correctly. Now let me just get into some of the main benefits of fasting. First and foremost, both fasting and intermitted fasting gives the body an opportunity to rest. Fasting has been carried out for hundreds and hundreds of years. In fact Hipocrates used fasting when helping some of his patients to recover from illness and disease. We now know through the science that fasting can also help with naturally boosting our hormones so that we can get more of an equilibrium in the body, which is pivotal for our health. Then as I said before as well as giving the opportunity to rest, fasting also helps with detoxification and removing those unwanted toxins from the body. So there is lots and lots of benefits for fasting, and there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that it can be very beneficial and healthy when looking to address health conditions in the body. Now there are lots of different ways fasting can be done. You can do full day fasts that last one or more days. Or you can do intermittent fasting in which you only eat during certain periods of the day or week. Some people might intermittently fast with juices and only one meal during the day, while others might fast using juices or water for 5 or more days. Now while short term intermitted fasting can be very beneficial and healthy, I really don’t recommend long term fasting – and this means anything longer than 7-10 days max. The reason for this is that there is very little research around this and I would always air on the side of caution. Now I have seen been people fast for longer periods and they have had dramatic and profound in their health, but this has always been done under the supervision of trained individuals. Its certainly not something you should be doing at home on your own. Now obviously one of the most popular forms of fasting today is intermittent fasting. And generally people will do this from one to three months in order to get the full benefits. So intermittent fasting is where you are essentially not eating for a certain period during the day. So for example most people will get up at 6-7 in the morning and eat breakfast and then snack throughout the rest of the morning. And if this is the case then most people will only allow their digestive track to heal for 7-8 hours per day. So what people do when intermitted fasting is that they allow a 4-8 hour window of eating a day. So they might not eat breakfast and then eat at lunchtime and in the evening. This means the body is getting upwards of 14 hours a day where its being the opportunity to heal. Or they might eat at lunchtime, then around 4 and then around 6-7. Now if you are fasting then you obviously want to ensure that you are getting plenty of protein, healthy fats and lots of starchy carbohydrates in your diet. So lots of nutrient dense food. So now we have talked about some of the benefits and types of fasts available, is this actually supported by science? And this is where it gets slightly confusing. When people talk about the health benefits of fasting, the benefits have usually been derived from studies where the participants have undertaken both intermittent fasting and calorie restriction at the same time. And to make things more complicated, these studies often include those eating standard western diet. So of course when they reduce their levels of saturated fats, cholesterol and processed foods they are all going to get massive benefits in the body. And the science supports this. You see improved cognition, weighloss, improved hormone levels – the list goes on and on.

Testosterone is the principle sex hormone responsible for the development of reproductive function in male vertebrates. Testosterone is one of the hormones referred to as androgens, which are also known of as anabolic steroids. As a steroid hormone, testosterone is derived from cholesterol and the structure of this hormone is similar across all mammals, reptiles, birds and fish. Function In males, testosterone is required for the development of male sex organs such as increased penis and testes size. The hormone also promotes the development of sexual male characteristics during puberty such as voice deepening and the growth of armpit, chest and pubic hair. Testosterone plays an important role in maintaining sex drive, sperm production, muscle strength and bone mass. A healthy level of testosterone is also protective against bone disorders such as osteoporosis. As testosterone is required for so many bodily functions, it is considered to be a general promoter of overall health and well being and has been described by The National Institutes of Health as the most important hormone in men. Testosterone is also important for maintaining bone strength and lean muscle mass in women, as well as contributing to overall well-being and energy levels. This hormone plays a key role in a woman’s sex drive and is responsible for enhancing sexual pleasure during intercourse. However, the levels of testosterone produced by females is still between ten and times less than the amount produced by men. Low Testosterone:  Search Menu   1 What is Testosterone?

This hormone plays a key role in a woman’s sex drive and is responsible for enhancing sexual pleasure during intercourse. However, the levels of testosterone produced by females is still between ten and times less than the amount produced by men. Secretion In males, the majority of testosterone is secreted from the testes, hence the term “testosterone”. The hormone is also produced in small amounts by the adrenal gland. The production of this hormone is controlled by the hypothalamus and pituitary gland in the brain. The pituitary gland receives instructions from the hypothalamus on how much testosterone needs producing and passes this information onto the testicles via chemicals and hormones circulating in the bloodstream. In females, half of the testosterone is produced by the ovaries and adrenal glands. The remainder is produced through conversion of adrenal androgens in other parts of the body. Declining testosterone In males, testosterone levels peak during adolescence and early adulthood and start to decline after the age of 30. This can lead to a progressive decline in physical energy and libido as a man ages. The testosterone level is thought to decline by approximately 1% every year after a man has reached 30 years of age. Advertisement However, in older men, it is important to establish whether any decline in well-being or function is due to a normal age-related decline in testosterone or whether symptoms are being caused by an abnormally low testosterone level, a condition referred to as hypogonadism. Low testosterone Related Stories Higher protein intake may not benefit older adultsMale birth control pill taken once a day shows successRegular soaking in hot tub improves health outlook in obese women with PCOS In men with hypogonadism, a low level of testosterone is produced due to a problem in the testicles or the pituitary gland. According to Harvard Medical School, determining exactly what constitutes a low testosterone level is a controversial matter. Levels of this hormone fluctuate wildly and even vary according to the time of day

Course materials at http://oregonstate.edu/instruct/bb451 Glycerolipid and Sphingolipid Metabolism 1. Phosphatidic acid is an immediate precursor of CDP-diacylglycerol, which is a precursor of the various glycerophospholipids . CTP combines with phosphatidic acid to yield a pyrophosphate and CDP-Diacylglycerol. Activation by CDP yields a high energy activated intermediate that can be readily converted to phosphatidyl glycerophospholipids. 2. From CDP-diacylglycerol, phosphatidyl serine can be made, as canphosphatidyl ethanolamine and phosphatidyl choline. Synthesis of phosphatidyl choline from phosphatidyl ethanolamine requires methyl groups donated by S-Adenoysyl-Methionine (SAM). Loss of the methyl groups by SAM yields S-Adenosyl-Homocysteine (I incorrectly said S-adenosyl-homoserine in the lecture). 3. Phosphatidyl ethanolamine (and phosphatidyl choline - derived from phosphatidyl ethanolamine) can both be made independently of phosphatidic acid biosynthesis. For this pathway, CDP-ethanolamine is the activated intermediate and the phosphoethanolamine of it is added to diacylglycerol to form phosphatidylethanolamine. Phosphatidyl choline can be made by the same methylation scheme in point 4. 4. Sphingolipids are synthesized beginning with palmitoyl-CoA and serine. Addition of a fatty acid to the amine group yields a ceramide. Addition of sugars to a ceramide yields either a cerebroside (single sugar added) or a ganglioside (complex sugar added). 5. Deficiencies in enzymes that degrade sphingolipids (particularly cerebrosides and gangliosides) are linked to neural disorders. One such disorder is Tay-Sachs disease. 6. Cholesterol is an important component of membranes, particularly in the brain. Cholesterol can be synthesized totally from acetyl-CoA. 7. Steroids include all compounds synthesized from cholesterol. This includes steroid hormones, vitamin D, bile acids, and other related compounds. 8. Isoprenes (also called isoprenoids) include the steroids and other compounds, such as Vitamin A and E that are also made from isoprene units. 9. Isoprene - 5 carbon units - 1) isopentenyl pyrophosphate and dimethylallyl pyrophosphate. Each is made from acetyl-CoA molecules. Synthesis of isopentenyl pyrophosphate and dimethylallyl pyrophosphate comes from mevalonate, which, in turn, comes from HMG-CoA, so isoprenoid biosynthesis overlaps partly with ketone body synthesis. 10. The most important enzyme in cholesterol biosynthesis is HMG-CoA reductase. It converts HMG-CoA to mevalonate and is the primary regulatory enzyme in cholesterol biosynthesis. Cholesterol is a feedback inhibitor of the enzyme. 11. Reaction of isopentenyl pyrophospahte with dimethylallyl pyrophosphate yields a 10-carbon intermediate, geranyl pyrophosphate 12. Reaction of geranyl pyrophosphate with isopentenyl pyrophosphate yields a 15 carbon intermediate - farnesyl pyrophosphate. 13. Reaction of two farnesyl pyrophosphates yields a 30 carbon intermediate - squalene. 14. Further reaction of squalene yields a cyclic intermediate, lanosterol. Synthesis of cholesterol from lanosterol requires an additional 19 steps. 15. Cholesterol in the body is either there as a result of 1) synthesis; 2) diet; or 3) storage/recycling. 16. In the digestive system, bile acids and mechanical agitation of the stomach help emulsify fats. 17. In the intestines, hydrolysis of fatty acids from fats by lipases (pancreatic lipase), yield soapy like substances that help emulsify lipids for transport across the intestinal wall. 18. After movement across the intestine, lipids are packaged in chylomicrons. They move through the lymph system into the capillaries where they get stuck. 19. Action of lipoprotein lipase in the capillaries removes some of the fat from the chylomicrons and they shrink in size and exit the capillaries and move to the liver. They are taken up there and released, when needed as VLDLs. These travel the blood system and get converted to IDLs and ultimately LDLs. Note that cholesterol ONLY gets into cells via receptor-mediated endocytosis of the LDL at the target cells.
