News Flash: Our Top Selling Product of 2015

Our top selling supplement in 2015 was AvinoCort which was also our top selling supplement in 2014. AvinoCort seems to be a favorite, being utilized by nutritional, functional and biological medicine practitioners alike. AvinoCort has once again outsold every other supplement we carry and I wanted to try and explain why this product has continued to impress practitioners and patients in a major way.

AvinoCort affects the whole body and multiple body systems in such positive and meaningful ways that 70% of patients feel its positive influence within 2-5 days.

Obtained from fertilized chicken embryos between the the 9th and 10th days of gestation AvinoCort is a purified broad concentration of oligo-peptides, growth factors and stem cells.

AvinoCort affects all cells and tissues of the body by supplying oligo-peptides for growth and repair. It seems to also have a major impact on the endocrine and nervous system via its actions that resemble a high quality adaptogen.

AvinoCort contains but is not limited to this list of growth factors:

1. IGF-1, IGF-2 (insulin-like growth factors 1 and 2) we know these from HP-100 which play important roles in growth and development. IGF-1 mediates many of the growth-promoting effects of growth hormone, while IGF-2 is essential to liver, kidney, and brain function.
2. FGF (fibroblast growth factors) are peptides that play a prominent role in the development of the skeletal and nervous system.
3. NGF (nerve growth factors) are peptides that promote neural cell regeneration.
4. EGF (epidermal growth factors) are peptides that promote tissue growth and development as well as helping with wound healing.
5. CTGF (connective tissue growth factors)- peptides that promote collagen production in the body and help with cartilage regeneration. TGF-β (transforming growth factors)- peptides that important in regulation of the immune system and plays a crucial role in the regulation of the cell cycle
6. FOLLISTATIN (also known as activin-binding protein), is involved in the development of the embryo and is part of the inhibin-activin-follistatin axis.
7. Tβ4 (thymosin beta-4) been found to play an important role in protection, regeneration and remodeling of injured or damaged tissues.

There have been several studies concerning the measured effects of chicken embryo extracts that have shown positive adrenal modulation via adaptogenic activity. This adoptogenic activity is a consequence of the growth factors from the standardized oligo-peptides extract on the adrenal cortex. Due its mechanism of action (in a paracrine manner of adrenal cortex activity) the growth factors from these special oligopeptides helps to modify the equilibrium of all the hormones secreted by the adrenal glands. These peptides also help to stimulate the division of mature cells and significantly help to decrease the mortality of older cells, and assist the body in normalizing numerous cellular processes by activating the fibroblast growth factor receptors. When this occurs, healing is accelerated and a variety of cellular processes are normalized and stabilized.

AvinoCort is also a wonderful nutrtional support for any type of brain tissue because of its high content of FGF.

FGF is responsible for building the linings in the blood vessels, creating the infrastructure for the nutrients to flow to critical areas of the brain and organs. Recent research credits FGF with the potential to directly affect many neuro disorders because of the clear results of the ability of FGF to affect the growth of neurites. Neurites are signal senders (Axons) and signal receivers (dendrites) attached to the brain neurons. Additional research has also shown clearly that new cell cultures show a dramatic increase in peptide and amino acid uptake in the presence of FGF.

The feedback we hear from patients on AvinoCort ranges from improved sleep, more stamina, better moods and often times more mental clarity. There are many more studied and recognized benefits from AvinoCort including but not limited to its ability to relieve adrenal stress via improved cellular repair and subsequent function.

There are many other benefits we see in patients taking AvinoCort including anabolic muscle activity via Follostatins and much more that we can discuss at a future date.

Because stress in any form ages the body we continue to believe AvinoCort plays a major role in health restoration and maintenance for all seekers of health as a first line adjunctive support product to basic nutritional support protocols.
