8 01 2013

Athletes, Coaches and Parents, read this. Most of you, especially involved in winter sports, know what it is like to get sick during the season. At XCAP, we strive to bring you information that keeps you healthy and performing your best.

XCAP’s  Vitamin D is the best product on the market, Vita D. Remember this, XCAP products are Manufactured in a FDA audited facility with a pharmaceutical license. Only buy quality stuff that actually works when you look for Vitamin D.

A Japanese study is the first clinical trial to test vitamin D against flu; children who took vitamin D were less likely to get one kind of flu!

Last year, American researchers who analyzed data from a survey of nearly 19,000 Americans (NHANES III) found that those with the lowest blood levels of vitamin D reported having significantly more recent colds or cases of the flu.

A Japanese team has just published the results of the very first controlled human trial designed to test vitamin D’s power to prevent the flu.

And the outcomes were encouraging: “This study suggests that vitamin D3 supplementation during the winter may reduce the incidence of influenza A.

This study among schoolchildren included a sharp drop in asthma attacks among the kids assigned to take vitamin D and also showed that kids taking vitamin D were 63% less likely to have developed influenza type A.

Bottom line is start using Vitamin D on a daily basis to help your body’s immune system.

If you get hit in the head, take Max EFA’s

15 02 2011

I recommend that people take Max EFAs from XCAP for many reasons such as hormone support, exercise recovery, heart, skin and joint health.

Here is yet another reason to take Max EFAs.  Studies are showing that if you do an activity that involves getting hit in the head, you should take Max EFAs.

Football, MMA, Boxing, Soccer and many other sports involve getting hit in the head.

Omega-3 Curbed Traumatic Brain Injury in Rats

Rats that got the highest dose of omega-3 DHA displayed the least brain damage.

Traumatic brain injury or TBI happens during accidents and sports mishaps, when the brain takes a shock that causes tissue damage.

Sadly, TBI became the signature wound of the Iraq war, in which some soldiers survived a blast only to suffer invisible blows to their cognitive and emotional capacities.

Omega-3s may offer hope for blunting the effects of TBI.

For example, in 2004, researchers reported that omega-3s deterred the worst brain damage from concussions suffered by rats.

Two rat experiments published in 2010  – bolstered the idea that omega-3s can curb the brain damage resulting from TBIs.





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.
