  • Speaker note – transition– of tale of three women.
  • FROM WIKIPEDIA - Epidermis
    Epidermis, "epi" coming from the Greek meaning "over" or "upon", is the outermost layer of the skin. It forms the waterproof, protective wrap over the body's surface and is made up of stratified squamous epithelium with an underlying basal lamina.
    The epidermis contains no blood vessels, and cells in the deepest layers are nourished by diffusion from blood capillaries extending to the upper layers of the dermis. The main type of cells which make up the epidermis are Merkel cells, keratinocytes, with melanocytes and Langerhans cells also present. The epidermis can be further subdivided into the following strata (beginning with the outermost layer): corneum, lucidum (only in palms of hands and bottoms of feet), granulosum, spinosum, basale. Cells are formed through mitosis at the basale layer. The daughter cells (see cell division) move up the strata changing shape and composition as they die due to isolation from their blood source. The cytoplasm is released and the protein keratin is inserted. They eventually reach the corneum and slough off (desquamation). This process is called keratinization and takes place within about 27 days. This keratinized layer of skin is responsible for keeping water in the body and keeping other harmful chemicals and pathogens out, making skin a natural barrier to infection. From WIKIpedia
    In the Heidelberg cohort of the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC-Heidelberg), which was recruited in 1994-1998, 23,943 participants without pre-existing cancer and myocardial infarction/stroke at baseline were included in the analyses. Vitamin/mineral supplementation was assessed at baseline and during follow-up. Cox regression models were used to estimate hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs).
    After an average follow-up time of 11 years, 1,101 deaths were documented (cancer deaths = 513 and cardiovascular deaths = 264). After adjustment for potential confounders, neither any vitamin/mineral supplementation nor multivitamin supplementation at baseline was statistically significantly associated with cancer, cardiovascular, or all-cause mortality. However, baseline users of antioxidant vitamin supplements had a significantly reduced risk of cancer mortality (HR: 0.52; 95% CI: 0.28, 0.97) and all-cause mortality (HR: 0.58; 95% CI: 0.38, 0.88). In comparison with never users, baseline non-users who started taking vitamin/mineral supplements during follow-up had significantly increased risks of cancer mortality (HR: 1.74; 95% CI: 1.09, 2.77) and all-cause mortality (HR: 1.58; 95% CI: 1.17, 2.14).
    Based on limited numbers of users and cases, this cohort study suggests that supplementation of antioxidant vitamins might possibly reduce cancer and all-cause mortality. The significantly increased risks of cancer and all-cause mortality among baseline non-users who started taking supplements during follow-up may suggest a "sick-user effect," which researchers should be cautious of in future observational studies.
  • When repleted - results pretty quickly. “If if spasms, think magnesium” – bowel, bronchial.
  • From the study: We and others have previously hypothesized that defects in mitochondrial oxidative and phosphorylation capacity might be a contributing factor to the increased triglyceride content in muscle and the liver. To test this hypothesis, we assessed in vivo rates of mitochondrial oxidative activity in skeletal muscle by 13C NMR and phosphorylation activity by 31P NMR. Using this approach, we found that rates of mitochondrial oxidative and phosphorylation activity were both reduced by ~40% in the elderly participants as compared with the young controls.
  • This heatmap illustrates gene expression of three groups from a pre-clinical test with one of the ageLOC Vitality ingredients: young (column 1), old (column 2), and old with ageLOC science (column 3). Each row represents one of 52 genes comprising the mitochondrial Youth Gene Cluster (mtYGC). Columns 1 and 2 show that each of the 52 genes became more or less active during the aging process. In column 3, the YGC activity pattern of the old with ageLOC science group has been reset to a gene expression pattern similar to the young group in column 1.1

    • 1. A Review of the Pharmanex Biophotonic Scanner, Supplements, the “Cady White Paper,” & Relevant Genomic Science in New AgeLOC Products Santa Ana, California – November 9, 2013 Louis B. Cady, MD – CEO & Founder – Cady Wellness Institute Adjunct Professor – University of Southern Indiana Adjunct Clinical Lecturer – Indiana University School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry Child, Adolescent, Adult & Forensic Psychiatry – Evansville, Indiana
    • 2. Background for this presentation: • There are no “drug claims” made for any products from NuSkin/Pharmanex • No NuSkin/Pharmanex product– nor any other “OTC” vitamin or supplement – is designed to treat, prevent, mitigate, diagnose or do anything else to or for any disease. • Pharmanex nutritional supplements & weight control products are designed to support the structure and function of the human body.

    • 3. CURRENT PRACTICE OF MEDICINE: What a patient had to say about her “specialists”: “They just monitor my degeneration.”
    • 4. Cady Wellness Institute – July 2005 The Reasons: • • • • Conventional medical practice had failed me twice. A lot of “psychiatric cases” WEREN’T “psychiatric.” Nobody was integrated. Nobody was looking at ALL of the peer-reviewed literature.
    • 5. Today: A Tale of FOUR Guys…
    • 6. Learning objectives • Importance of antioxidants (with refs) • Origins and validity of the Biophotonic Scanner • The critical “three points” of the “Cady White Paper” • AgeLOC technology and “YGC’s” (??) • Vitality and TR90
    • 7. “Streaking”, or….. Better Buckle Up!!! • Definition: Streaking is the act of taking off one's clothes and running naked through a public place. [ref: - accessed 09 02 2013] • “In 1973, what the press called a ‘streaking epidemic’ hit Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, TX, with streakers being seen in residence halls, at football games and at various other on-campus locations and events, including Spring graduation.” (Harvard-Yale game, 2006)

    • 14. Could it happen to you?
    • 15. What causes oxidative stress? • Environmental Toxins – – – – Heavy metals – including Mercury (fillings!) Pesticides/herbicides Preservatives PCB’s, Dioxins, Phthalates • Toxins produced in the body – Yeast and bacteria – Products of cellular metabolism • Emotional Stress – Anxiety/Tension – Fear – Anger
    • 16. Oxidative stress in the BRAIN – why you should “know your numbers”
    • 17. Why is the brain so susceptible to oxidative stress? • Burns glucose – generates free radicals. • Uses 20% of total oxygen and energy consumed by the body. • ½ of this is for electrochemical nerve transmission. • Contains IRON • Contains essential fatty acids, which can be OXIDIZED (“rancid fat”) • Limited supply of own antioxidants • Limited ability to regenerate/repair damage
    • 18. • • • • What are some consequences of oxidative stress? Behavioral deterioration Impaired cognitive function Decreased memory Psychiatric symptoms • Increased inflammation • Depressed immune system • DNA damage • cancer
    • 19. Antioxidant assessment Reference:
    • 20. Center for Biomedical Optics – Dixon Laser Institute, University of Utah • Werner Gellermann, Ph.D. – Research Professor • Colleague – Igor Ermakov, Ph.D., et al. • Technologies – “Novel Raman Spectroscopy and Raman Imaging.” • Funding: – National Institutes of Health – State of Utah – Spectrotek, LLC
    • 21. “A method and apparatus are provided for the determination of levels of carotenoids and similar chemical compounds in biological tissue such as living skin.”
    • 22. Dissolved carotenoids in stratum corneum 27 days
    • 23. Scientific Validation: Peer-reviewed by the medical & research communities • Society of Investigative Dermatology, May 25, 2000. – Non-Invasive Raman Spectroscopic Detection of Carotenoids in Human Skin. • Arch Biochem Biophys. 2010 Dec 1;504(1):40-9. Epub 2010 Aug 1. – Validation model for Raman based skin carotenoid detection • J Eur Acad Dermatol Ven. 2011 Aug;25(8):945-9. – Skin carotenoid levels in adult patients with psoriasis.
    • 24. “RSS spectroscopy is a reliable method for non-invasive measurement of B-carotene levels in skin, and may be used as an important biomarker of antioxidant status in nutritional and health studies in humans.” Ramirez-Velez, et al. Endocrinol Nutr. 2012 April
    • 25. “But is the scanner really valid and dependable?”
    • 26. • “The totality of the evidence supports the use of skin carotenoid status as an objective biomarker of fruits/vegetable intake…” • “ carotenoids may effectively serve as an integrated biomarker of health…” • “Thus, this biomarker holds promise as both a health biomarker and an objective indicator of fruits & vegetables intake….”
    • 27. Scamo S et al. Br J Nutr. 2013 Sep 14;110(5):911-7. • Good agreement between single and multiple measures (95% CI) • + association with intake of total carotenoids • “A single RRS measure was reasonably accurate at classifying usual skin carotenoid state.”
    • 28. So where do I find this “white paper”? • • cadywhitepaper2008.pdf
    • 29. Relationships of carotenoids to other more conventionally measured antioxidants (p 6 -7) • Svilaas et al (2004): – 2, 670 adults studied with serum carotenoids measured and correlated with vitamin consumption – serum carotenoids were stronger predictors of other antioxidants than were alpha, beta, delta, and gamma tocopherols, as well as glutathione.* * Svilaas A, et al. Intakes of antioxidants in coffee, wine, and vegetables are correlated with plasma carotenoids in humans. J Nutr. 2004 Mar;134(3):562-7.
    • 30. Convenience of carotenoids as antioxidant measurement (pp7-11) • Hata, et al* (2000) – correlated skin carotenoids (Raman) with carotenoid levels from skin from abdominoplasty patients (HPLC). • “Our technique can be used…for assessing antioxidant status and the risk for diseases related to oxidative stress.” [Palm of skin = highest carotenoid location] *Hata et al. Non-invasive Raman spectroscopic detection of carotenoids in human skin. J Invest Dermatol. 2000 Sep; 115(3):441-8.
    • 31. The Svilaas/Hata Syllogism: • Hata (2000) – Raman measurements of carotenoid == HPLC skin measurements • Svilaas (2004) – skin carotenoids = better predictor of antioxidant status than mixed tocopherols and glutathione • THEREFORE [Cady]: Raman spectroscopy is a better measure of antioxidant status than mixed tocopherols and glutathione.
    • 32. BTW – what does that “SCS” actually mean in REAL LAB MEASUREMENTS? • Y = 12703 * X + 5891.7 – Where Y is the SCS, and X is the carotenoid concentration in MICROgrams/ml, viz: • • • • • 25,000 = 12703X + 5891.7 25,000 – 5891.7 = 12703 * X 19,108.3 = 12703 * X 19,108.3 /12703 = X X = 1.50 MICROgrams /ml • Rule of thumb: 1,000 on SCS = .06 ug carotenoid/ml blood serum • (e.g., SCS of 40,000 = 2.4 ug carotenoid/ml) Source: NuSkin/Pharmanex
    • 33. “You don’t need vitamins: (a) you can get’em in your food; (b)they just make expensive urine.” “I don’t believe in antioxidants.” – from an MD!!
    • 34. “Inadequate intakes may result in chronic metabolic disruption, including mitochondrial decay.” “[They] cause DNA damage, such as chromosome breaks, in cultured human cells or in vivo.” “triage theory
    • 35. 16,103 people – 1994 – 1996. ZERO got 100% of all required vitamins and nutrients - Highest – B12 =- 82.8% got enough - 66.8% - had adequate folate - Lowest – Zinc – only 26.6% got enough.
    • 36. Seismic shift in the medical literature - 2002 “Pending strong evidence …from randomized trials, it appears prudent for all adults to take vitamin supplements.” Fletcher & Fairfield, JAMA 2002
    • 37. What’s New since the “cady report” (2006 & 2008)?
    • 38. Angela Mastaloudis Ph.D. Senior Scientist, Global Research & Development, Pharmanex
    • 39. “RS accurately measures total carotenoids in human skin with less intra-individual variability than measurement of serum carotenoids by HPLC analysis. RS technology is a valid and reliable noninvasive method to rapidly assess carotenoid nutritional status in humans.” (J Am. Coll Nutr 2009)
    • 40. Epidemiology of Vascular Aging (EVA)
    • 41. Epidemiology of Vascular Aging (EVA) • Study population: – N=1,389; age range {59-71 yoa} – 9 year study • Relative risks: – all cause mortality at 2.94X in men in lowest quintile (95% CI, P=0.03) – cancer 1.72X in men (95% CI, P=0.01 • “Total plasma carotenoids levels were independently associated with mortality risk in men.”
    • 42. Vitamin/mineral supplementation & cancer, cardiovascular, and all-cause mortality (EPIC-Heidelberg) Li K, Kaaks R., et al. Eur J Nutri July 2011 • Purpose: evaluate vitamin/mineral supplementation with CA, CV dz, and mortality • Methods: – 23,943 healthy participants, followed 11 years – Baseline and “new-use” supplementation noted • Results: 513 CA deaths, 264 CV deaths – “No MVI supplement had any significant effect” • “sick user” phenomenon discussed. • Baseline users of antioxidant supplements had significantly reduced risk of cancer [HR 0.52] and all cause mortality [0.58]
    • 43. Antioxidants and brain tumors? • “free radicals are another etiological factor of brain tumor and are removed by cellular antioxidants in the human body.” • Inverse correlation between: – antioxidant levels and oxidative DNA damage – Grades of malignancy • Decrease in antioxidants are associated with severity of malignancy
    • 44. Conclusions • “It is concluded that administration of antioxidants could reduce the incidence of brain tumors and probably other types of cancer.” • - Shewelta SA , Sheikh, BY Curr Drug Metab. 2011 Jul;12(6):587-93. (Dept.of Biosciences & Technology, Alexandria University, Egypt.)

Hum Psychopharmacol. 2011 Sept 8. doi 10.1002/hup.1229 (Swinburne University of Technology – Hawthorn, Victoria, Australia.)
    • 65. “Micronutrient supplementation has a beneficial effect on perceived stress, mild psychiatric symptoms, and aspects of mood in apparently healthy individuals. Supplements containing high doses of B vitamins may be more effective in improving mood states.”
    • 66. What happens with biotin deficiency? Two LifePak Nano packets have 100% of recommended daily requirements of Biotin. “Our results suggest that biotin deficiency promotes hyperglycemic mechanisms…and decreased insulin secretion and sensitivity to compensate for reduced blood glucose concentrations.”
    • 67. One more time… no supplement, under the DSHEA act, may be represented to treat, cure, mitigate or prevent any disease. No such “health claims” are being advanced for any Pharmanex/NuSkin supplement or product.
