Once again Dr. P. R. Raghavan has demonstrated how Metadichol works to improve health. In a recent paper, published in the Journal of Stem Cell Research & Therapy, Metadichol is shown to affect the glucose transporter 4 (Glut4 – found primarily on muscle cells) and associated receptor substrates. This explains the control of glucose in patients treated with Metadichol in many case studies. “Umbilical Cord Treatment with Metadichol, IRS and Glut4 Expressions and Implications for Diabetes” Link to Paper as PDF: IRS-GLUT4-PAPER
It is important to understand that this is a new paradigm for treatment of disease. Typically, in medical treatment research, it has been “one drug–one target.” In the above paper, it is shown how a new understanding of treatment is obtain with “one drug–multiple targets.” When gene expression as well as nuclear receptors are brought into proper communication, amazing things happen.
Glucose transporters have been shown to increase the transfer of sugars through cell membranes in several ways. Of course, insulation regulation has always been the obvious control of sugar uptake by cells. It is also well known that exercise significantly increases the action of Glut4 which is the transporter for muscle cells. In addition, thyroid hormones play an important role in glucose transporters (which means that iodine and selenium are important). Now for the first time, the regulation of glucose transporters is shown to be affected by a food substance.
Metadichol is a nano-emulsion of waxy aliphatic alcohols, policosanols. The difference of Metadichol and other policosanol supplements is the small particle formulation. Policosanols can be found in many plants. Modern processing of foods has significantly changed the way our bodies take up policosanols. The most concentrated areas of policosanol are on the surface of leaves and husk of seeds and grains.
This is exciting news for diabetics who may be able to control their blood sugar with a substance that does not have side effects, Metadichol.
