Teacher Catalyst is designed
to provide maximum cell-integrity stabilization and to assist in the
optimization of gut by enhancing cell repair and intracellular energy
Teacher Catalyst Strategy:
- Vitamin D: This important
vitamin (actually a hormone) has important gene stabilizing effects. Vitamin D
metabolites influence the expression of various genes involved in calcium
homeostasis, cell differentiation, and regulation of the immune system.
- Selenium: This
micromineral is iportant for its effect in enhancing gene methylation and its
ability to remove genotoxins though it interactions with the antioxidant
glutathione. An adequate selenium status has for long been considered to
prevent the development of various forms of cancer.
- Quercetin: A significant
anti-mutagen, quercetin is a bioflavanoid anti-oxidant found in most plants.
In addition to its cell-stabilizing effects, quercetin also enhances the
cell's ability to process glucose and has mild anti-allergic properties.
- Panax Ginseng: American
ginseng (Panax quinquefolius L., Araliaceae) possesses anti-cancer potential
and is one of the most commonly used herbal medicines in the United States.
Waxy components in American gensing, called saponins, have been shown to
promote gene stability.
- ECGC Green Tea: The ends
of human chromosomes are protected from the degradation associated with cell
division by long end sections called telomeres. In normal cells telomeres lose
up to 300 base pairs of DNA per cell division that ultimately leads to
senescence; however, most cancer cells bypass this lifespan restriction
through the expression of an enzyme that helps repair the telomeres
(telomerase). Unfortunately many cancer cells express excess telemorase as
part of their quest for immortality. ECGC Green Tea helps regulate telemorase
activity, in addition to helping remethylate the sections of genes that
demethylate with aging.
Together with GenoType specific diet and lifestyle strategies, the Teacher Catalyst formula works in harmony with the Synergist and Activator formulas to support your body's natural ability to maximize your GenoType's strengths and minimize its weaknesses.
