AA Resveratrol Blast helps burn fat

11 02 2011

I will sum up this study up to make it easy to understand.  Resveratrol helps in the required steps for your body to burn fat.  XCAP’s product is called AA Resveratrol Blast.

Here is a list of other things that AA Resveratrol Blast has been shown to improve in studies.

Up-regulation of Adiponectin by resveratrol: the essential

roles of the Akt/FOXO1 and AMP-activated protein kinase

signaling pathways and DsbA-L.

J Biol Chem. 2011 Jan 7;286(1):60-6.Metabolic Syndrome Research Center, Second Xiangya Hospital, Central South University,

Hunan 410011, China.

OBJECTIVE: The natural polyphenol resveratrol (RSV) displays a wide spectrum of health

beneficial activities, yet the precise mechanisms remain to be fully elucidated. Here we show that

RSV promotes the multimerization and cellular levels of adiponectin in 3T3-L1 adipocytes.

METHODS AND RESULTS: The stimulatory effect of RSV was not affected by knocking out

Sirt1, but was diminished by suppressing the expression levels of DsbA-L, a recently identified

adiponectin-interactive protein that promotes adiponectin multimerization. Suppression of the Akt

signaling pathway resulted in an increase in the expression levels of DsbA-L and adiponectin. On

the other hand, knocking out FOXO1 or suppressing the activity or expression levels of the AMP-

activated protein kinase (AMPK) down-regulated DsbA-L and adiponectin. The stimulatory effect

of RSV on adiponectin and DsbA-L expression was completely diminished in FOXO1-suppressed

and AMPK-inactivated 3T3-L1 adipocytes.

CONCLUSIONS: Taken together, our results demonstrate that RSV promotes adiponectin

multimerization in 3T3-L1 adipocytes via a Sirt1-independent mechanism. In addition, we show

that the stimulatory effect of RSV is regulated by both the Akt/FOXO1 and the AMPK signaling

pathways. Last, we show that DsbA-L plays a critical role in the promoting effect of RSV on

adiponectin multimerization and cellular levels.





Zinc improves mood

We know from previous studies that Zinc helps with many things such as preventing scarring after a cut, thyroid health and hormone production.  We have very specific instructions on the www.XCAP.tv website on how to use zinc.

Role of zinc in the development and treatment of mood disorders

Curr Opin Clin Nutr Metab Care. 2010 Nov;13(6):685-9.

Department of Biomedical Sciences, Florida State University College of Medicine, Tallahassee,

Florida, USA.

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The present review is a critical examination of the most recent

published work on the role of zinc in the development and treatment of mood disorders.

RECENT FINDINGS: Clinical studies and experimental work using animal models have both

revealed a link between zinc status and neuropsychological disorders such as depression and

anxiety. Not only has zinc deficiency been shown to induce depression-like and anxiety-like

behaviors, supplementation has been used as a treatment for major depression. Zinc

administration improves the efficacy of antidepressant drugs in depressed patients and may have

a particular role to play in treatment-resistant patients. Recent investigations into the molecular

mechanisms responsible for these observations suggest a role for zinc in the regulation of

neurotransmitter systems, antioxidant mechanisms, neurotrophic factors, and neuronal precursor

cells.

SUMMARY: The data reviewed here not only indicate a role for zinc deficiency in the

development of mood disorders, but also show that zinc may also be important in their treatment.

Given the prevalence of zinc deficiency in human populations, this work has the potential to

influence strategies to prevent and treat these disorders.
