Protective effect of betaine on changes in the levels of protein, glycoproteins and amino acids in isoprenaline-induced myocardial infarction in rats

Abstract edited by Dr. Kunin for clarity:

In this research rats were injected with isoprenaline (similar to adrenalin), so as to cause myocardial infarction, identical to heart attacks in humans. The experiment included a second group of rats that were pre-treated with betaine. The outcome showed a dramatic protective effect of betaine, evidenced by survival and significant changes in the levels of protein, glyco-protein and amino acids in the betaine treated animals after the injection of isoprenaline.

Pre-treatment with betaine (by mouth) significantly prevented the isoprenaline-induced rise in the levels of troponin-T and creatine phosphokinase (CPK), signs of heart muscle damage. It also lowered amino acid signs, specifically, taurine, aspartate, glutamate, arginine, hydroxy-proline and homocysteine, which appear in the blood after heart attacks. Reduced damage was also evidenced by reduced glycoprotein components (e.g. hexose and hexosamine) and there was also a decrease in lipid peroxidation. In fact, the heart damage was so limited that tissue peroxides remained at normal levels, comparable to the uninjected control animals.

Healthy hearts for the holidaysThe holidays are in full swing and with it comes an increase in heart attacks. How could it be during this incredible month of celebration and joy that there could be an increased risk of death to go along with it?

As far as I am concerned it's very simple. Starting with Thanksgiving and continuing through to New Years, we let our hair down and let loose with an incredible amount of good cheer which includes a big increase in the consumption of animal protein which leads to increased homocysteine levels which leads to an increase in heart attack. It's sobering to remember that Chambers & McGregor showed that the average healthy male had a decrease of 85% in blood flow by simply consuming the amount of methionine found in two steaks.

"Brazil's health ministry urgently requested 140 of the cyanide-treatment kits containing the medicine hydroxocobalamin"*

Image of the Brazilian nightclub ruins in which 238 people lost their lives.

In February, a terrible nightclub fire took the lives of 236 people in Brazil leaving over 140 people with acute Cyanide poisoning due to the combustible materials that outgassed Cyanide. Currently the standard treatment for acute cyanide poisoning is a very special form of Vitamin B12 that is used in Ola Loa Products, HydroxyCobalamin. I find it amusing that this vitamin is being referred to as a "medicine." Ironically, virtually all vitamin B12 supplements contain the cyanide form of B12 known as CyanoCobalamin. This form of Cobalamin is already bound to a cyanide molecule and can't detoxify cyanide.

image graphic - NO PROZAC!With the recent shootings in New Town, CT there has been a justifiable outcry for something to be done but I'm worried that our representatives in Washington and elsewhere will overreach and not make us any safer. Our elected officials seem obsessed with the idea of gun control and are doing a disservice by referring to certain weapons as "assault weapons". The fact is all firearms in the wrong hands are potentially "assault weapons" and with over 300 million firearms in circulation gun control does very little from keeping guns out of the hands of deranged individuals determined to get their hands on a firearm. What New Town shows us, like other tragedies of this type is that we don't have a gun control problem as much as a medical problem. What's going on with these people to commit such horrible acts? And is there a way to work with these people before they become killers? I believe there is and the Orthomolecular approach is the answer.

Richard Deth, Ph.D., shows that HydroxyCobalamin (Vitamin B12) is more available in almost all tissue of the body!

Many of you have probably heard me say the form or source of an ingredient can make a huge difference. One such ingredient is Vitamin B12. Ola Loa has gone out of our way to make sure that you have access to the most available form of Vitamin B12 (HydroxyCobalamin) versus the common form of Vitamin B12 (CyanoCobalamin, just think Cyanide). At $6,000 more per kilo, is there any wonder why most other companies use the less expensive, toxic form? In the slide below, Dr. Deth shows that the body uses HydroxyCobalamin up to 300%+ better than even MethylCobalamin.
