  • Detailed Description

    The energy patterns of collagen, non-specific immune response, chemicals plus anandamide, tumour necrosis factor alpha, more weight control hormones. 25 vials for use by Applied Kinesiologists, Chiropractors, Homeopaths, Naturopaths and others with training in natural therapies.


    BB51    n-Acetyl-D-Glucosamine        
    Builds and maintains the matrix of collagen6 and connective tissue that forms the ground substance of cartilage.    
    Inflammatory bowel disease; Crohn’s disease.

    BB52    Anandamide
    Pain control; may be used by the brain as a central fine-tuner of electrical activity; inhibits movement; involved with mood; short-term memory; male fertility (high levels slow speed of sperm); acts as a chemical messenger between the embryo and uterus during implantation of the embryo in the uterine wall; may control coughing and various respiratory functions; may increase appetite.    
    Also known as “the bliss molecule” (ananda is Sanskrit for bliss) and the body’s own cannabis (cannabis binds to the same receptors as anandamide); chocolate contains anandamide;  may be involved in Crohn’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, drug addiction, schizophrenia, autism and Gilles de la Tourette’s syndrome.

    BB53    Collagen Type I        
    90% of the collagen in human body; present in bone, skin (associated with type III collagen) and tendons.    In foetal and diseased tissue, type I collagen has been reported as having a different structure.

    BB54    Collagen Type II        
    30% of hyaline and elastic cartilage is composed of type II collagen; present in inter-vertebral discs and the vitreous body of the eye.
        
    BB55    Collagen Type III        
    The major collagen found in skin, blood vessels and internal organs such as the smooth muscle layers of the gastrointestinal tract.    

    BB56    Collagen Type V        
    A minor collagen as it is present in less than 10% of the total collagen in any tissue; usually found with type I collagen and type III6 collagen in bone, tendon, cornea, skin, blood vessels and  lungs;  during foetal development, basement membranes originally contain type V collagen before being replaced to type IV collagen.
        
    BB57    Complement C3    
    Part of non-specific immune response; turned into complement 3b which enhances phagocytosis (ingestion and destruction of cell debris, microbes and other foreign matter); most abundant of complement proteins.    low levels of C3 often seen in gram negative septicemia, shock, lupus,  fungal infections and some parasitic infections such as malaria; increased complement activity seen in cancer and ulcerative colitis; decreased complement activity in hepatitis and  liver cirrhosis.

    BB58    Complement C5a
    Part of non-specific immune response; contributes to the development of inflammation by dilating arterioles and causing release of histamine.    
    Increased complement activity seen in cancer and ulcerative colitis; decreased complement activity in hepatitis and liver cirrhosis.

    BB59    Complement Factor B    
    Part of non-specific immune response; activates complement C3 and so the immune response.    
    Increased complement activity seen in cancer and ulcerative colitis; decreased complement activity in hepatitis and liver cirrhosis.

    BB60    Complement Factor D    
    Protein    Part of non-specific immune response; activates complement C3 and so the immune response.    Increased complement activity seen in cancer and ulcerative colitis; decreased complement activity in hepatitis and liver cirrhosis.

    BB61    Complement Factor I    
    Part of non-specific immune response; recognizes repetitive sugar structures found in cell membranes of bacteria and viruses but not in humans; triggers reactions that activate complement C3 and C5 and so the immune response.    
    Increased complement activity seen in cancer and ulcerative colitis; decreased complement activity in hepatitis and liver cirrhosis.

    BB62    Complement Factor P/ Properdin    
    Part of non-specific immune response; activates complement C3 and so the immune response.    
    Increased complement activity seen in cancer and ulcerative colitis; decreased complement activity in hepatitis / cirrhosis.

    BB63    Elastin    
    With fibrillin forms elastic fibres which are strong but can be stretched up to 150% of their relaxed length without breaking; form a network within tissues particularly skin, blood vessel walls and lung tissue.    
    With age thickens, fragments  and acquires an affinity for calcium so may also be associated with development of atherosclerosis.

    BB64    Erythropoietin/ EPO    
    Produced by kidneys; formed from a plasma protein, stimulates red blood production.    
    Increased blood levels in anaemia.

    BB65    Exendin (9-39)    
    Reduces glucose levels; competes for the same brain receptors as GLP1 and so blocks the effect of GLP1 and stimulates appetite.    
    Has been shown to acutely increase food intake and promote weight gain in long-term rodent studies; influence on type 2 diabetes.

    BB66    Glucagon-Like Peptide 1/ GLP1    
    Produced in intestinal endocrine cells; stimulates production of insulin; inhibits production of glucagon and gastric emptying; reduces appetite; lowers blood glucose in people with diabetes.    
    Biological activity is arrested by Dipeptidyl Peptidase IV.

    BB67    Glucosamine-6-phosphate        
    The form that occurs in the body; “glues” structures together; forms an integral part of cell membranes; influences cell to cell communication; important for joint surfaces, tendons, ligaments, synovial fluid, skin, bone, nails and mucus secretions of the digestive, respiratory and urinary tracts.    
    Important in osteoarthritis and cartilage health generally; the supplement glucosamine sulphate may be used when the body is short of this.

    BB68    Glutathione Peroxidase    
    Involved in conversion of hydrogen peroxide within the body; protection against free radical damage; reduces the production of inflammatory prostaglandins and leukotrienes.    Children with asthma have significantly reduced blood levels; may be involved in schizophrenia; levels reduced if selenium deficiency.

    BB69    Nociceptin/ Orphanin FQ2    
    Present in many areas of the CNS; believed to play a role in pain transmission; amplifies pain and enhances harmless stimuli into painful sensations.
        
    BB70    Nocistatin
    Counteracts the effect of nociception.    

    BB71    Orexin B    
    Generated when blood sugar levels drop, so acting as a trigger to eat.    people who over-eat may possibly produce too much orexin; lack of orexin has been linked to narcolepsy (sleep disorder characterized by sudden sleeping).

    BB72    Phosphatidyl-inositol        
    Important component of biological membranes; supervises division of cells and metabolism.    
    In some skincare products and lipsticks.

    BB73    Superoxide Dismutase/ SOD    
    Antioxidant produced naturally in the body; combats the damage to cells caused by the superoxide radical.    Supplementation of SOD has been shown to exert strong regenerative effects on tissues that have become hardened or fibrotic because of age, disease, or injury; may be anti-ageing.

    BB74    Tumour Necrosis Factor Alpha    
    Produced by macrophages, which engulf and destroy bacteria, viruses, and other foreign substances; role in regulating inflammatory and immune responses throughout the body and particularly in relation to some parasites.    
    Asthma, eczema, psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, AIDS, multiple sclerosis, cancer; may be involved in septicaemia, and the weight loss associated with parasitic infection or cancer.

    BB75    Ubiquitin/ APF-1        
    Essential for protein degradation and cell cycling; DNA repair; cellular stress responses; various enzymes attach ubiquitin to body proteins; these enzymes are known as ubiquitin ligases.; when a protein bears many ubiquitin molecules, it is targeted for degradation by the proteasome, a huge enzyme complex; when few ubiquitins are attached, they may serve structural, regulatory, or trafficking functions.

    More hormones are available in the Hormone Test Kit and the other Body Biochemical test kits.

    Complement system - “a series of 11 chemicals always present in the blood stream. They can create a chain reaction, each one becoming activated and then activating the next member in the chain…. Each activated complement component does something to help eliminate the enemy. Some chemicals dilate blood vessels; others can destroy the membranes of bacterial cells…. Some of these attract …. [granulocytes]… into battle. These cells are extremely important, being our best eaters and destroyers of bacteria.” The Body At War by John Dyer
