ASTAXANTHIN, a powerful antioxidant carotenoid obtained from microalgae, is found widely in nature including shellfish and salmon. It has no vitamin A value, but protects against lipid peroxidation that causes plaque formation up to 500 times that of vitamin E, traps more types of free radicals than any other antioxidant, is able to cross the blood-brain barrier, protects skin & eyes by quenching singlet and triplet oxygen, boosts the immune system, alleviates oxidative stress, prevents initiation of certain cancer cells, reduces abnormal cells in the liver, and increases muscular endurance 2.8 times compared with placebo in one human study.

Seems sort of like an under the radar supp that could be beneficial.

Regulation of multiple insulin-like growth factor binding protein genes by 1alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3.

Recently, insulin-like growth factor binding proteins (IGFBPs) have been found to be primary mediators of the anti-proliferative actions of the nuclear hormone 1alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 [1alpha,25(OH)2D3], but dependent on cellular context IGFBPs can also have a mitogenic effect. In this study, we performed expression profiling of all six human IGFBP genes in prostate and bone cancer cells and demonstrated that IGFBP1, 3 and 5 are primary 1alpha,25(OH)2D3 target genes. In silico screening of the 174 kb of genomic sequence surrounding all six IGFBP genes identified 15 candidate vitamin D response elements (VDREs) close to or in IGFBP1, 2, 3 and 5 but not in the IGFBP4 and 6 genes. The putative VDREs were evaluated in vitro by gelshift assays and in living cells by reporter gene and chromatin immuno-precipitation (ChIP) assays. Of these 10 VDREs appear to be functional. ChIP assays demonstrated for each of these an individual, stimulation time-dependent association profile not only with the vitamin D receptor, but also with first heterodimeric partner the retinoid X receptor, other regulatory complex components and phosphorylated RNA polymerase II. Some of the VDREs are located distantly from the transcription start sites of IGFBP1, 3 and 5, but all 10 VDREs seem to contribute to the regulation of the genes by 1alpha,25(OH)2D3. In conclusion, IGFBP1, 3 and 5 are primary 1alpha,25(OH)2D3 target genes that in intact cells are each under the control of multiple VDREs.

try ginseng too! I had a benign but aggressive Giaant Cell Tumour (a bone tunour) growing in my distal ulna. When I took ginseng ( a mix of siberian, korean, and american ginseng blend), I could feel my tumor becoming cooler. It felt like the blood supply to the tumor was greatly reduced, and my tumor slowly shrank in size. Nevertheless, I had the tumor excised on the advice of my doc. I 'll continue taking ginseng to prevent it from growing back.

hey man that's awesome bro! Did you use a regular dose or a more aggressive one?

The Mayo Clinic maintains an online database where they grade alternative medicines based upon actual studies of them.
