Glutamate and Cancer

January 27, 2011, Featured in Cancer and Natural Medicines, 0 Comments

We have already discussed the issues in other blogs about glutamine, and we already know that glutamine, converted to glutamate in the body, can stimulate growth of tumors.
Glutamine may actually stimulate growth of tumors.
High concentrations of oral glutamine also produce high amounts of glutamate in the blood, a breakdown product of glutamine. Glutamate is a key molecule in cellular metabolism and is the most common neurotransmitter in the brain. It is particularly abundant in the nervous system. The most common excitatory neurotransmitters are glutamate and aspartate while the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter is GABA. It is necessary for excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters to be in balance for proper brain function to occur. Glutamate receptors are responsible for the glutamate-mediated post-synaptic excitation of …

Effects of Hepazym-immunotherapy in chronic hepatitis B patient treated with Baraclude (Entecavir)

There are different potential mechanisms for how HBV can be inhibited. Mechanisms include an antiviral and immune modulating approach with natural substances like Hepazym. One of the primary ways in which Hepazym can benefit your health is in its ability to interact with, and modulate the immune system. The ability of a substance to modulate the immune system is extremely useful. Modulation is a term used to describe the process of reducing the extremes of cellular activity – either stimulation or inhibition. Immune modulating substances have the ability to work in both directions. They can boost the immune system when it is depressed (referring to conditions such as chronic fatigue) and can also suppress the immune system when it is over-stimulated (such as in the case of autoimmune diseases like …
