    Tart Cherry

    Scientific tests show that tart cherry juice concentrate has 12,800 ORAC units per 100 grams of concentrate. This is a very high value, significantly higher than other fruits, including prunes, blueberries and strawberries. The ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) tests, which were conducted by Brunswick Laboratories in Wareham, Massachusetts, quantifies how many antioxidants are in a food and how powerful they are. Brunswick Labs is a leader in ORAC testing and has set the standard for other testing companies.

    Dried cherries have 6,800 ORAC units per 100 grams; frozen tart cherries, 2,033 units and canned tart cherries, 1,700 units. Other fruits that have been tested range from 700 to 5,700 ORAC units per 100 grams. Nutritionists suggest that people consume 3,000 to 5,000 ORAC units per day to have an impact on health.

    Tart cherries have 19 times as much vitamin A and beta carotene as strawberries and blueberries. They also are high in fiber and potassium and contain iron, magnesium, vitamins C, B6, E and folic acid; they have virtually no fat and no sodium. “This variety of nutrients in tart cherries translates into good nutrition,” says Rainville. A complete nutritional analysis of tart cherries was recently done on frozen, canned and dried tart cherries as well as tart cherry juice concentrate. How it works....

    The new theromogenic's ORAC value is off the sheezy! I have really impressed myself, and I'm unimpressive.

    USPLabs, when did you finish conducting ORAC testing on your new product? Again, that's a pretty big number. I'm definitely impressed.

    fatloss via anti-cortisol and thyroid, correct?

    I would imagine this helps narrow it down a bit more.

In obesity 11β-HSD1 mRNA and activity in adipose tissue are increased. The mechanism of this up-regulation remains uncertain; polymorphisms in the HSD11B1 gene have been associated with metabolic complications of obesity, including hypertension and type 2 diabetes, but not with obesity per se. Extensive data have been obtained in mice with transgenic over-expression of 11β-HSD1 in liver and adipocytes, targeted deletion of 11β-HSD1, and using novel selective 11β-HSD1 inhibitors; these data support the use of 11β-HSD1 inhibitors to lower intracellular glucocorticoid levels and treat both obesity and its metabolic complications. Moreover, in human subjects the non-selective ‘prototype’ inhibitor carbenoxolone enhances insulin sensitivity. Results of clinical studies with novel potent selective 11β-HSD1 inhibitors are therefore eagerly awaited. The present article focuses on the physiological role of glucocorticoids in regulating energy partitioning, and the evidence that this process is modulated by 11β-HSD1 in human subjects.

    Licorice Root Extract

    Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra L.) root was once used to make the candy of the same name, but has since been replaced by anise and corn syrup. Glycyrrhizin, one of the major components of licorice root has a structure very similar to corticosteroids. These compounds have been shown to block 11-b-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase, the enzyme responsible for the conversion of cortisol to the inactive cortisone (15-18). The result is increased cortisol levels. Chronic high levels of licorice have been known to raise blood pressure by causing increased cortisol binding to the mineralocorticoid receptors in the kidney, increasing water retention and blood volume. When taken in smaller targeted doses, licorice root extracts can be used to support adrenal activity. Licorice root extract should be used only in hypoadrenal states. Sublingual (tincture) doses should be taken several hours before the cortisol levels drop below normal. For instance if morning cortisol levels are normal or high but the noon levels are below normal, 5 drops of licorice root extract (equal to about 50 mg of root) would be taken between 10-11 am. This will maintain or boost cortisol levels for several hours. Additional doses can be taken in the mid afternoon if the 4-5pm cortisol levels are reduced. Severe hypoadrenalism may require 3 or 4 separate doses throughout the day and may also necessitate taking up to 10 drops at each dosing. While these amounts may seem rather low, they are intended to be subtle and used in combination with glycemic control and vitamin/mineral support products. Even at these levels, caution should be taken with individuals having high blood pressure.

    actually the Herb is pretty common but the extract is not..But I will take the name of the whole herb not the extract. If it where the extract, this would be a contest no one could win.

    Gossypol, a polyphenolic compound from cotton seed, caused hypokalemia in some men receiving it in a trial of its contraceptive activity. Searching for the mechanism for its hypokalemic action led to the observation that it inhibited 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase. This would enhance mineralocorticoid effect in the kidney. Many other polyphenols also inhibit this enzyme including those in grapefruit juice. Ingesting 1–2 l of grapefruit juice inhibited this enzyme in two men in a clinical experiment. Tea polyphenols inhibit this enzyme and add to the inhibition caused by gossypol. Men in China have lower serum potassium values than men elsewhere and this is due to the environment, presumably the diet, in China. The importance of dietary and other exogenous inhibitors of this enzyme in electrolyte metabolism remains to be determined.
