Shilajit Boosts sperm production, semen motility and testosterone levels

anti-aging-supplements Shilajit Boosts sperm production, semen motility and testosterone levels http://www.rudramani.com

In various studies Shilajit

  • Boosted spermia by 38% (production of sperm by volume) 
  • Enhanced total sperm count by as much as 62% (concentration of sperm in a man's ejaculate) 
  • Improved semen motility by 18% after different time intervals. Sperm motility describes the ability of sperm to move properly towards an egg. This can also be thought of as the quality of the sperm, which is a factor in successful pregnancies, as opposed to its quantity.
  • Boosted normal sperm count by 19% (this indicates the semen count in sperm,) 
  • Decreased of semen Malondialdehyde (MDA) content by 18.7%. More the Malondialdehyde content in semen means more the oxidative and DNA damage to the sperm. Malondialdehyde in sperm is normally higher in older patients above 40 years of age.
  • Boosted testosterone levels by 24%. Testosterone levels indicate the extent of sexual drive and vigor. It is known to decrease with age. Starting from the age of 30 there is a 1% decrease in testosterone levels each year. 
  • Enhanced  FSH production by 9.4%. FSH is Follicle-stimulating hormone. FSH regulates the development, growth, pubertal maturation and reproductive processes of the body. In both males and females, FSH stimulates the maturation of germ cells. In males, FSH induces Sertoli cells to secrete Androgen binding proteins. FSH stimulates the growth and recruitment of immature ovarian follicles in the ovary.

Methods of Diagnosing Alzheimer’s disease with Biomarkers

anti-aging-supplements Methods of Diagnosing Alzheimers disease with Biomarkers http://www.rudramani.com

Methods and compositions relating to Alzheimer's disease are done by analyzing the proteins that are differentially expressed in the brain in the Alzheimer's disease state. These are very much different from the proteins in normal brain.

Dementia is one of the major public health problems of the geriatric population. But off late it seems to affecting even those in their thirties. Increasing numbers of patients with dementia are imposing a major financial burden on health systems around the world. More than half of the patients with dementia have Alzheimer's disease (AD). The prevalence and incidence of AD have been shown to increase exponentially. The prevalence for AD in Europe is 0.5% for ages 60-69 years, 4.2% for ages 70-79 years, and 13.8% for ages 80-89 years. The survival time after the onset of AD is approximately from 3 to 10 years. Death occurs as the brain cells are starved of the energy and nutrients.

Alzheimer's disease (AD), the most common cause of dementia in older individuals, is a debilitating neurodegenerative disease for which there is no definitive cure as of now. It destroys the neurons in parts of the brain, chiefly the hippocampus, which is a region involved in coding memories. Alzheimer's disease gives rise to an irreversible progressive loss of cognitive functions and of functional autonomy. The earliest signs of AD may be mistaken for simple forgetfulness, but in those who are eventually diagnosed with the disease, these initial signs inexorably progress to more severe symptoms of mental deterioration. While the time it takes for AD to develop will vary from person to person, advanced signs include severe memory impairment, confusion, language disturbances, personality and behavior changes, and impaired judgement. Persons with AD may become non-communicative and hostile. As the disease ends its course in profound dementia, patients are unable to care for themselves and often require institutionalization or professional care in the home setting. While some patients may live for years after being diagnosed with AD, the average life expectancy after diagnosis is eight years.

In the past, AD could only be definitively diagnosed by brain biopsy or upon autopsy after a patient died. These methods, which demonstrate the presence of the characteristic plaque and tangle lesions in the brain, are still considered the gold standard for the pathological diagnoses of AD. However, in the clinical setting brain biopsy is rarely performed and diagnosis depends on a battery of neurological, psychometric and biochemical tests, including the measurement of biochemical markers such as the ApoE and tau proteins or the beta-amyloid peptide in cerebrospinal fluid and blood.

Biomarkers may possibly possess the key in the next step for diagnosing AD and other dementia. A biological marker that fulfils the requirements for the diagnostic test for AD would have several advantages. An ideal biological marker would be one that identifies AD cases at a very early stage of the disease, before there is degeneration observed in the brain imaging and neuropathological tests. A biomarker could be the first indicator for starting treatment as early as possible, and also very valuable in screening the effectiveness of new therapies, particularly those that are focused on preventing the development of neuropathological changes. A biological marker would also be useful in the follow-up of the development of the disease.

Shilajit Moomiyo also called Mumiyo is an energy metabolism booster

anti-aging-supplements Shilajit Moomiyo also called Mumiyo is an energy metabolism booster http://www.rudramani.com

Shilajit moomiyo is an adaptogenic herb which can be used to enhance physical and mental performance. Shilajit is believed to amplify the benefits of other herbs by enhancing their bio-availability. Shilajit is also believed to increase protein synthesis, growth rate and/or energy intake. Suitably, the nutritional composition can include a Shilajit material or extract which has been standardized to include or contain 10% humic acid and/or 10% fulvic acid. In accordance with certain other embodiments, the nutritional composition can alternatively and/or additionally contain fulvic acid, humic acid, and/or another botanical, natural, or herbal source of fulvic acid and/or humic acid.

In accordance with certain other embodiments, the nutritional composition can alternatively and/or additionally contain fulvic acid, humic acid, and/or another botanical, natural, or herbal source of fulvic acid and/or humic acid..

Shilajit plays an important part in boosting the energy metabolism process in the body. Anabolism is a key factor in the process of muscle growth for athletes and body builders. Anabolism is comprised of multiple metabolic pathways, constructing larger molecules from their building blocks. Energy is a necessary part of these metabolic pathways. In contrast, catabolism is the deconstruction of large molecules into smaller ones. Anabolism is fueled by both the small molecules of catabolism as well as an energy source, such as, but not limited to, adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The anabolic process and related anabolic hormones stimulate protein synthesis and muscle growth. Anabolic reactions are synthesis reactions and are endergonic, meaning that they consume more energy than they produce. Anabolism is the process of chemical reactions that combine simple molecules and monomers to form the body's complex structural and functional components. Glucose may take part in or be formed via several anabolic reactions such as, for example, synthesis of glycogen or the synthesis of new glucose molecules from byproducts of protein and lipid breakdown, i.e., gluconeogenesis. One way of promoting anabolism is through the use of a dietary supplement or drug However, many anabolic stimulation compositions are illegal or have been banned from use by athletes in a number of professional, collegiate, and amateur sports. Additionally, anabolic stimulating products also generally tend to have undesired side effects that can be harmful to the health of an individual. Thus, there is a need and a demand for a dietary ingredient or composition which can promote anabolism without undesirable side effects and/or which is suitable for use by athletes. For the most part, anabolism is increased where there is an energy source and a way to synthesize proteins and therefore build new muscle. One energy source is ATP. Alternative energy sources include compounds or methods to increase metabolism. The ability and rate at which the body can spare and replenish energy is critical for anabolism.

Shilajit contains 85 types of minerals in the natural ionic form which are very vital for maintaining the equilibrium of energy metabolism in our body. The minerals in Shilajit are not similar to the mineral supplements available in the market. The minerals in Shilajit are in ionic form and have previously been absorbed by rich plant life and returned back to earth. So they are easily absorbed by the body cells.

FULVIC ACID the major ingredient of the Shilajit plays a vital role in penetrating the cell walls and transporting the minerals deep into the cells. This is the most important property of the Shilajit that helps in arresting and reversing the aging process. With shilajit ensuring sufficient supply of minerals and vitamins deep into the body cells the energy metabolism process in the body is well maintained.

It's about Alzheimer, you won't understand the movie unless you lived or knew someone that suffered that disease.My grandmother just died. Alzheimer's. She didn't remember any of her relatives or her children. I hope they will find a cure or a way to prevent it from happening.
This video is awesome but what adds to the awesomeness is that the participants are studying Alzheimer's disease. Thank you all for brightening this grad student's day and for the research you are doing!EL ALZHEIMER los iva a traicionar. Jajaja que cagados-
Não seria Alzheimer?
Alzheimer??
It sounds like she's to the point where she needs a feeding tube or at the very least some kind of easier to eat food (like pudding). It doesn't seem like you're a medical professional and that's what she needs.Can I start an Alzheimer's charity even when there is an Association for it?
I have always wanted to gradually start up my own charity for Alzheimer's, even though there is already an Alzheimer's Association. Can I legally do this? I know it will take a lot of time, planning, money and research and I'm prepared to dedicate that to it. The point is, can I do this? . . Thanks!.
Your mission statement cannot duplicate any organization that already exists otherwise the IRS will not grant you tax exempt status. Suggest you learn what

you can about current nonprofits that serve Alzheimer sufferers and ensure yours is different.
How can nationalism relate to Alzheimer's being delayed by bilingualism?
Relate nationalism to alzheimer's being delayed by bilingualism. . I had come across an article about bilingualism delaying the onset of Alzheimer's symptoms and found it quite fascinating. Out of curiousity, I wondered if nationalism could relate to this topic. Any words or contributions to this topic are open..
What causes Alzheimer's to progress quickly? Could it be a different dementia?
How to deal with an Alzheimer's patient who is starting to hit their caretakers?
I think he needs to be in a specialist nursing home...the staff will be used to people like him.
Can a person with moderate to severe Alzheimer's Disease symptoms have a day where they are lucid than others?

Hypothetically speaking, a person with Alzheimer's has been put into a nursing home. They are visited by their spouse and at that point asks if they can go home now..Yes. They have times when they are more aware than others.. . My step-mother, who has alzheimers, got mad at my Dad for something. He saw her in the bedroom, packing her suitcase. He said..."Where are you going Honey?". She said, "I'm going home." ...He said, "But honey, you ARE home." It was very sad.. . A devastating disease to the entire family.. . The person you describe may even have been referring to their Childhood home. You never know. So, sometimes even things that APPEAR nonsensical... aren't.
What is the effect of a surgery on an Alzheimer's patient?

My grandpa has cataracts and needs surgery to remove them. However he also has Alzheimer's and I am worried about the effect anesthesia has with his disease..
The anesthesia shouldn't affect the Alzheimers itself.. . But anesthesia can cause short-term confusion, as can hospitalization. So that can make his Alzheimers seem worse.. . Plus, if his dementia is severe, he won't be able to participate in his own after-care, and may need to be watched closely or even restrained to keep him from damaging his eyes before they're healed.
Any ideas for keeping an Alzheimer's patient from taking their colostomy bag off?
We have an Alzheimer's patient that keeps taking their colostomy bag off and putting it in their pocket. ANY ideas of how to prevent that would be appreciated! Thanks you!.
Perhaps using an abdominal binder loosely fitted, with the velcro closure in the back.
When a family member with Alzheimer's acts inappropriately in public, what is the best way to intervene?\

How can doctors tell an Alzheimer's patient suffered a stroke, and estimate the time?
How can one tell the difference between the early stages of Alzheimer's and simple forgetfulness?
Anyone can forget things but its different because Alzheimer's destroys brain cells, causing memory loss and problems with thinking and behavior severe enough to affect work, lifelong hobbies or social life. has she seen the doctor? this can be serious because when my grandma didn't go to the doctor and forgetting every ones names she had brain cancer. so i recommend for her to see the doctor
What are the things you can do to reduce the risk of Alzheimer?\

This may be about Alzheimer, but other I am also thinking about other deadly diseases. I know that we all get sick sometimes and there comes a time when our body does not always function because of aging and other stuff. But I am asking this question because I just want to educate myself and I believe I can learn from you and other people..
How do you approach your spouse about getting checked for early onset Alzheimer's?
My wife is always losing her keys and forgetting her cell phone. Her maternal grandmother has Alzheimer's. I'm just trying to figure out if my wife is just being forgetful or if it is more serious. How do you tell the difference? I want her to get tested, but how do you approach someone about it without being a blow to the ego..

Bexarotene could hold the key to cure of Alzheimer’s in humans.

anti-aging-supplements Bexarotene could hold the key to cure of Alzheimer’s in humans. http://www.rudramani.com

New hope and breakthrough in Alzheimer's treatment. In a paper published today a team of researchers Gary Landreth and Paige
Cramer of Case Western University found that a drug called Bexarotene has a remarkable effect on mice afflicted with a
condition similar to Alzheimer’s in humans. These mice have similar plaques in their brains, compose of beta-amyloid proteins, and they show behavioral and cognitive impairment similar to the problems experienced by Alzheimer’s patients.

Within just hours of administering bexarotene to these mice, the plaques started to clear. If that weren’t amazing enough, within a few days the mice also recovered cognitive abilities that they had lost. In particular, they regained the ability to make nests, a behavior that normal mice have and that the Alzheimer’s mice had lost. They also regained at least some of their sense of smell. Bexarotene known commonly as Targretin is a drug that came into market in 1999 and was originally meant for treating certain types of Skin cancer. It is also used off label for lung cancer and breast cancer. If you are a care giver just makes sure your doctor knows about Bexarotene.

Steve Jobs of Apple is dead. Steve jobs pancreatic cancer
Is it possible that one of the greatest geniuses, inventors and innovators the world has seen - Steve Jobs could have been alive today if only he had been bit more smart when it came to his health? There are currently talks that Steve Jobs relied more on natural and herbal medicines to treat his cancer rather than surgery. Question arises whether it is really true.

Firstly we have to understand the type of cancer Steve Jobs was suffering from. He was suffering from a rare form of pancreatic cancer known as islet-cell neuroendocrine pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic cancer does not show any visible symptoms for as much as 12 years in most cases. By the time it is diagnosed the malignancy would have already grown and spread beyond manageable levels. This is the reason why it has such a high mortality rates. The first year survival rate - the year after which it is diagnosed is 24 percent. The 5 year survival rate is as low as 3%. That means that of 100 persons diagnosed of pancreatic cancer as many as 75 will die at the end of first year and as many as 97 out of 100 persons will die by the fifth year. Pancreatic cancer is the fourth most leading cause of cancer deaths in America. It has highest mortality rates of all the cancers. To aggravate this mortality rate further Steve jobs was suffering from a rare form of pancreatic cancer which has even higher mortality rates.

Steve Jobs' pancreatic cancer was diagnosed in 2003 and he died in 2011. . There only a 3% chance for him to survive beyond 2008. Going by the statistics he definitely lived much longer and gave the world few more great products. Steve Jobs took a number of herbal medicines along with conventional treatment. The news that Steve Jobs relied upon herbal medicines and hence he did not take conventional medical treatment or undergo surgery is totally wrong. No one least of all Steve Jobs would have ever done such a thing. Surgery for cancer is something that is truly daunting and outright scary.

Being such a busy man with the entire world looking towards him in 2003 it was quite possible that he in consultation with his doctors opted for Chemotherapy or radiation and delayed surgery. It is also very common for doctors to administer radiotherapy and chemotherapy on pancreatic cancer patients for a couple of months before doing surgery. This is considered a more effective practice as the chances of relapses are reduced.

Herbal extracts, diet etcetra do have proven anti cancer properties. In fact they are known to be very effective in reducing the risks of cancer. Just as tobacco increases risk of cancer certain herbal extracts can reduce the risk of various types of cancer. But it has to be born in mind that only a doctor and modern medical science can treat cancer effectively. No herb or supplement can treat or cure cancer.

Shilajit as a treatment for reproductive infertility – Try before looking for sperm bank donors..

Shilajit as a treatment for reproductive infertility – Try before looking for sperm bank donors..
Shilajit was used by Indian Yogis and Ayurvedic doctors of India for thousands of years to help childless couples and infertile persons. Shilajit is perhaps one of the best kept secrets of ancient India. Modern science and medicine has begun to discover the powers of shilajit in this regard. Shilajit contains certain types of proteins, amino acids, Dibenzo alpha pyrones, fatty acids, carotenoids, metal ions and Fulvic acid which help in the reproductive function. Fulvic acid transports the nutrients in shilajit as well as other vitamins and minerals deep into the body cells. Fulvic acid also flushes out of all the toxns and chemicals that affect the reproductive function. Shilajit acts on various areas related to reproduction notably male infertility, development and protection of embryo, female sexual dysfunction and libido enhancement. We will see the ingredients of shilajit and their specific functions in detail.
L Carnitine an ingredient in shilajit provides an energetic substrate to spermatozoa and it contributes sperm motility. L Carnitine directly assists in the successful maturation of sperm.
Poly unsaturated fatty acids  PUFA in shilajit give the cell membranes of sperms considerable fluidity to participate in membrane fusion events associated with fertilization. Another ingredient in Shilajit is Dibenzo alpha pyrones known as DBP. DBP’s are very essential for sperm health.
The amino acids in shilajit are far more effective than what is available from other sources are supplement extracts. The amino acids like arginine and lysine are the constituents of sperm chromatine proteins, protomines and histones.
DBP – Chemoproteins ( Dibenzo alpha pyrone chemoproteins) protect against the damage to seminal fluids by reducing the reactive nitrogen species in the sperm. Reactive nitrogen species act together with reactive oxygen species to damage cells, causing nitrosative stress. This process destroys the vital sperm cells. This leads to lower count of sperm in the seminal fluid. Shilajit thus can very effectively prevent this destruction of vital sperm cells.
The zinc in shilajit is in organic and ionic form. This is unlike what may be ingested through food or through supplements. This zinc raises testosterone levels and consequently augments sperm health.
Several detailed studies were done in India on the effect of shilajit on semen quality of adult males. Seminal analysis was done initially and after 60 days of consuming shilajit. The results were truly remarkable.
The volume of seminal fluid per ejaculation was 3.42 ml initially. It rose to 4.25 ml after the administration of shilajit. This was a marketd 24.27 percentage in seminal volume.
The wet weight of the seminal fluid was 3.08 grams initially. It rose to 4.15 grams after taking shilajit. This was an increase of 34.74 percentage..
Dry weight of the seminal fluid was 317 milli grams initially. It rose to 394 grams after consuming shilajit. This was a marked 24.29 percentage increase.
The fructose content in seminal fluid was 4.45 milli grams per milli litre initially. It rose to 5.18 after consuming shilajit. This was an increase of 16 percentage.
Amino acid content in sperm is one important factor that determines the survival of spermatozoa in the female genital tract. The failure of sperm progression in the female genital tract may be due to a decrease of amino acid molecules in semen of infertile patients. It was also shown in various studies around the world that consumption large amount of amino acid supplements alone did not increase the concentration of amino acid molecules I semen.
Shilajit was found in 2 distinct studies to effectively increase the concentration of amino acids in semen. The seminal fluids of 2 sets of individuals were studied. One set was of average age of 60 years and mostly infertile. The other set was of average age of 30 years.
The amino acid concentration in their seminal fluids was measured initially and after 4 months of taking shilajit. In older subjects there was an increase of amino acid (total) in semen from 1% to 3%. In the younger subjects the amino acid concentration increased from 2% to 6%.
Those who wish to enhance their reproductive levels and fertility should consider shilajit as an option.

Shilajit was found in 2 distinct studies to effectively increase the concentration of amino acids in semen.  The seminal fluids of 2 sets of individuals were studied.  One set was of average age of 60 years and mostly infertile.  The other set was of average age of 30 years.

The amino acid concentration in their seminal fluids was measured initially and after 4 months of taking shilajit.  In older subjects there was an increase of amino acid (total) in semen from 1% to 3%.  In the younger subjects the amino acid concentration increased from 2% to 6%.

Those who wish to enhance their reproductive levels and fertility should consider shilajit as an option.

Shilajit and antiretroviral treatment in HIV/AIDS therapy

anti-aging-supplements Shilajit and antiretroviral treatment in HIV/AIDS therapy http://www.rudramani.com
Shilajit is a multi mineral pitch containing 85 trace minerals, Fulvic acid and other not elsewhere available enzymes. It is truly a wonder substance. Its powers were known to Indian Yogis since thousands of years. Modern science and medicine are slowly discovering the powers of shilajit.  It is Shilajit that can make a difference in chronic ailments that are plaguing the body and mind and where others fail. One such truly amazing power of shilajit is in boosting the immune systems to totally different levels.  In this context the effect of Shilajit was studied in regards to HIV/AIDS therapy.
It is generally accepted that agents hat enhance immune system or temper drug side effects may complement conventional HIV/AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) therapies. Drugs that reduce the viral load of the human immune deficiency virus (HIV) enable the body to restore white blood cell counts and as a result extend the life of the people who are affected with HIV.    The modern treatment methods for HIV/AIDS patients mainly involve ART or anti retroviral therapies. HIV infection when diagnosed early and if treatments are started in time, can be effectively controlled so that it does not develop into full blown AIDS. The life of the patient can be extended by several decades with ART therapies.  Shilajit’s powers have been found to be truly surprising and amazing in this regard. This has been clearly established with 2 latest studies. It has been found that Shilajit is endowed with both immune potentiating and viral load reducing properties.
A clinical study of AIDS patients with multi component natural product formulation comprising 3 essential and 3 supportive ingredients was done. Shilajit was the main component in the study – others being Withania Somnifera and Tulsi. Out of 36 patients the 22 patients who received the treatment with the formulations for 6 months showed positive signs of improvement. Their CD4 ( (cluster of differentiation 4) cell counts increased from  around 260 to 450.  Around 10 patients who received this treatment for 1 year showed distinct improvement in the symptoms and augmentation in the CD4  to a consistent level of around 650.  Doctors use a test that 'counts' the number of CD4 cells in a cubic millimeter of blood. A normal CD4 count in a healthy and HIV-negative adult can vary but is usually between 600 and 1200 CD4 cells/mm3. It recommended that HIV treatment is started when  CD4 cell count is around 350.
Another study of the effect of shilajit and 2 other herbs was done on HIV patients at Department of Virology, Haffkines Institute at Mumbai, India. The Haffkines Institute, Mumbai , India was established in 1899 by Dr. Waldemar Mordecai Haffkine who trained directlt under the legendary Louis Pasteur in ParIs. This institute played a vital role in containing bubonic plague outbreak in India during early part of last century.  In-vitro tests were done with the herbal extracts of the plants Shilajit, Ashwagandha and Tulsi on Reverse Transcriptase, an enzyme that is found in the Human Immuno-deficiency Virus (HIV) and causes it to multiply. The tests showed that these herbs have the potential to act effectively against the enzyme. The study began in 2006 with the three herbal extracts being tested against Reverse Transcriptase. Simultaneously, a drug named azidothymidine (AZT), which is used for the treatment of HIV/AIDS, was also tested. Results of this comparative study showed that tulsi and shilajit gave better results than that of AZT drug on the enzyme. “When AZT was 70% effective in blocking the enzyme activity, tulsi and shilajit showed 80% to 90% activity. Now that the herbal extracts of these plants have shown positive results, the institute is planning to take the research to the next level. Surely some more organized research and study needs to be done on these beneficial powers of shilajit. One can surely benefit by taking Shilajit as a supplement together with any other conventional treatment for HIV/AIDS.
Can Shilajit together with Ashwagandah and Tulsi help in prevention of HIV infection? This is a very tricky question which has no conclusive answers as of now. Conducting such a research is extremely difficult and risky. The best ways to avoid HIV infection are well known. HIV infection spreads through bodily fluids namely blood, semen, vaginal fluids and breast milk. One has to be very careful in case of exchange of these fluids. Safe sex using condoms give protection only 85% of times. Transfusion with HIV infected blood is almost 100% sure to transmit the infection. A course of antiretroviral treatment administered immediately after exposure, referred to as post-exposure prophylaxis, reduces the risk of infection if begun as quickly as possible. This has to be done within one hour to 72 hours from the time of infection. The success of this preventive treatment depends on the viral load that is received and how soon the treatment is started. If the treatment can be started within an hour the success of the treatment could be as higher as 96%. In this context logical inference means that Shilajit can make a significant contribution. Shilajit was initially never meant for tackling HIV infection. It is an anti aging elixir providing vital nutrients to the body. Shilajit has already been proven to be an effective therapy for HIV in conjunction with conventional treatment or by itself. Shilajit has been shown to decrease the viral load and increase CD4 counts in those who have already contracted HIV.
Those who take Shilajit daily could benefit to some extent at the time of exposure to HIV. The virus is at it’s most vulnerable time during initial time. With shilajit already being taken some degree of protection against contracting the infection could be possible. Indian Yogis discovered the wonderful benefits of Shilajit thousands of years ago. They called it as Amrit – meaning “the elixir that makes one immortal”. It is indeed interesting to note that shilajit is of help in a modern 20 century disease like HIV/AIDS.
