Trehalose provides sustained energy and is a stress protectant for proteins and membranes E-mail
Trehalose provides sustained energy and is a stress protectant for proteins and membranes

By J. C. Spencer

Research mounts that trehalose acts as a stress protectant for plants and animals, proteins and membranes. Pathogen Research Show Trehalose Pathway as a Selective Fungicidal Target for Use in Antifungal Development. Trehalose has been found to play diverse roles, from energy source to a stress protectant. Improving stress tolerance and yield in crops are major goals for agriculture. Trehalose reseach in plants opens new doors for better production. The Endowment for Medical Research continues to be your educational resource for sugars that are beneficial to better health of plants, animals, and humans. Here are more reports of ongoing trehalose research.

Sugars Help Fold Proteins Correctly - A Significant Discovery E-mail
Sugars Help Fold Proteins Correctly - A Significant Discovery

by J. C. Spencer

MisfoldedProteinMisfolded proteins are responsible for neurodegenerative disorders, cancers, and viruses. Here are three articles from München, Germany, M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, and Oxford University plus a reference to an article I wrote about the common cause for neurodegenerative diseases. Correct the protein folding problem and you correct a wide range of problems. Specific sugars help explain how a string of amino acids consistently folds into a protein's three-dimensional shape — one of the more enduring mysteries in biology. Studies have revealed that sugars can regulate when a newly minted protein interacts with so-called chaperone molecules, which help it fold. The sugars "actually help a protein to fold," says Raymond Dwek, director of the Oxford University Glycobiology Institute. "That is one of the most significant discoveries in glycobiology." Doctors and scientists, let us connect the dots in these related articles and we will better understand why MIT said, Glycomics is one of the emerging technologies that will change the world.

University Study Shows Specific Sugars Improve Brain Function

by J. C. Spencer

BrainFunctionWashington, DC Howard University study shows improved brain function using specific sugars. This boost in brain power with normal healthy subjects supports the two published papers from the Alzheimer’s Pilot Surveys conducted by The Endowment for Medical Research in Houston. The Council For Responsible Nutrition (CRN) Research Watch states, "... a published randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study investigating the impact of Ambrotose® complex on the brain function of 62 healthy young adults. The study showed that a single, one-tablespoon serving of Ambrotose complex significantly improved visual discrimination and working memory."

Historical First Image of a Single Molecule with Atomic Force Microscope

by J. C. Spencer

SingleMoleculeA new door in scientific research has just opened. The future for imaging molecules and better understanding of their bonds is now possible. This new method even shows the chemical bonds. This has never been accomplished before although shapes of single carbon nanotubes have been outlined. The atomic force microscope (AFM) will enable us to better understanding structure. Couple the AFM with the ability to measure the charge on an atom and we have the potential to predict new dimensions of structure function. Oh, what we can do with this technology in opening a new understanding of glycomics.

Smart Drugs vs. Sugar E-mail
Smart Drugs vs. Sugars

by J. C. Spencer

Better brains are craved by students cramming for exams, executives attempting to out think their competition, Generals in the chess game of battle, and those who fear dementia. All are seeking answers to superior brain function by reaching into the dark pill box called Pandora.

Brain enhancing drugs are running amok. Research shows that using drugs to tinker with the brain is not only proving to be more addictive than previously thought but can actually cause deterioration in cognitive performance, cardiovascular complications, seizures, hallucinations, and serious skin rashes. In short, smart drugs actually damage the brain and body by compounding neurological problems.

Update # 7 (Letter to Senator Tom Harkin)

Many of you have purchased Dr. Gil Kaats' book, "Restructuring Body Composition" from our BookStore. Here is an important update for your files. You may print this out and place it in the back of your book. If you do not have a copy of this very informative book yet, please visit our BookStore and get your copy now! We appreciate so much your continued interest and support. Thanks, JC Spencer.

Update 7: Letter to Senator Tom Harkin on his Appointment as
Chairman of the Late Senator Kennedy’s Health Committee

Perhaps no time in our nation’s history have so many people been involved with issues of healthcare. Irrespective of one’s position on the multiple recent healthcare proposals and plans, it is clear that healthcare is a dominant political and social issue in contemporary America. Wellness and nutritional supplements are increasingly looked to as legitimate cost-saving healthcare options. Irrespective of the financial incentives provided through the marketing of dietary supplements, the incentive to play an important role in healthcare is a clarion call for the supplement industry and is an opportunity that should not be missed.

Trehalose Plays Major Role in Nanotechnology Developments E-mail
Trehalose Plays Major Role in Nanotechnology Developments

Comments by J. C. Spencer

New research indicates that the sugar trehalose will play a major role in future nanotechnological developments. We know trehalose can be utilized for positively altering gene expression. Do not confuse altering gene expression with genetic engineering. Genetic engineering can create new species. Positively altering gene expression can bring out the best of the DNA to correct corrupted signals.

We have seen this especially in neurodegenerative diseases. The nano size trehalose molecule improves brain function through its tiny architectural design enabling it to reach its destination where larger molecules cannot go. Trehalose applies its ability to affect the signals and after it has achieved its purpose, it becomes what I call “the slow drip of glucose” in its purest form. You know, like the glucose drip you automatically receive when you check into a hospital.

NEW Trehalose Study reveals How Trehalose Causes Positive Brain Membrane Interaction in Alzheimer’s Disease

Comments by J. C. Spencer

New research suggests HOW the disaccharide trehalose reduces the toxicity of the amyloid β peptide. Evidence indicated that it is this amyloid β toxicity that plays an important role in the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Trehalose actually appears to fold the peptide favorably. Trehalose promotes the insertion of α-helical amyloid β into biological membranes.

The Endowment for Medical Research in Houston continues its Trehalose Pilot Surveys so as to gather evaluation reports from neurodegenerative challenges. The Evaluation Forms may be downloaded from the website at www.endowmentmed.org
