Aluminum is a Powerful Neurotoxin

ALUMINUM IS USED IN VACCINES, IS IT REALLY SAFE? Contributed by Dana Slick Mayo Aluminum salts are used as adjuvants in all attenuated vaccines. They force the immune system to react to the “killed” pathogen. Unlike ingested aluminum found in the earth, Aluminum salts...

What is Beta Glucan 1-3,1-6

WHAT IS BETA GLUCAN? “Beta Glucan is the world’s most powerful immunomodulator, meaning that it helps activate and enhance all of the functions of the immune system. This helps your immune system become more “aware” and more effective at fighting off foreign...

Epigenics and Targeted Nutritional Intervention

UNDERSTANDING EPIGENICS AND TNI. Abstract “One of the most challenging questions in neuroscience is to dissect how learning and memory, the foundational pillars of cognition, are grounded in stable, yet plastic, gene expression states. All known epigenetic...

The Gelb Study on Nutrivene

NOTE: This study was done with an early incarnation of Nutrivene. Since it’s publication further research has provided the means to greatly improve the protocol. Gelb Matthias J. Gelb Reprinted with the permission of Günther Samitz Translator: Dr. Lutz Kube,...

The Miguid Study on Nutrivene

NOTE: Since this study in 2001 better co factors for Glutathione Peroxidase and reduced Glutathione (in the form of Setria Glutathione)  have been added to the formula to increase GHPX and GHX. At the time this study was done the supplements for Glutathione available...

For Patty and other Parents New to TNI

FOR THOSE NEW TO TNI FOR Patty and other parents new to TNI. Let me introduce myself. I am Dixie Lawrence, biochemist and team member for Trisomy 21 Research. We developed TNI 24 years ago using a method to down regulate (kind of like turning off) over expressed...

MicroRNA-155, DS and Resveratrol

WHY WE USE RESVERATROL  MICRO-RNA-155 IS OVER EXPRESSED IN DS This article is the first in a series explaining why we utilize certain nutrients, proteins and polyphenols to down regulate genes that are over expressed in Down syndrome. We will also discuss measures...

Nutrivene-D – The Heart of TNI

NUTRIVENE D, THE HEART OF TNI By Carina Stjernholm Hoff TNI stands for targeted nutritional intervention, and the reason for using it is to help normalize the biochemistry of children and adults with Down syndrome. Their extra chromosome gives them an extra set of all...

A Quick Refresher on SOD1

  We have discussed Superoxide Dismutase 1 (SOD1), an enzyme mapped to the Down syndrome critical region of Chromosome 21. It is over expressed in most tissues, including the brain, by as much as 51%.  Because this gene is over expressed it is completely out of...

A Closer Look at Stem Cells

STEM CELL THERAPY FOR DOWN SYNDROME? There are clinics around the country illegally selling stem cell therapy. This is presently being investigated and halted by the FDA. I fully agree with shutting down these clinics as stem cell therapy has not yet reached the stage...
