What Tikva Users Have To Say

I have been taking these ingredients for over 1 year now.  It has been great!

My blood pressure went from 160/101 to 115/75.  My total cholesterol went from over 300 to 201.  This all happened in less than 6 months after taking these ingredients.

My husband and I wanted to let you know what our experience with these ingredients has been, even at this early stage. This Wednesday marks 4 weeks on the drink.

Daniel is 42. His health is good except for the high blood pressure. He's been on Lisinopril and Indapam for about two years. He became a living zombie. It was a struggle for him some days to get the dishes washed and unload the dishwasher. He had almost every side effect listed for these drugs. In looking back, we realized that he is someone that is extremely sensitive to medicine and responds very quickly to them (either way).

We received the shipment on Wednesday, March 16th, and he began taking it.
His energy began coming back the following Monday, and has remained (and gotten better).

On Friday, April 1 he had to
stop taking the diuretic medicine because his blood pressure was dropping too low. Once this diuretic was stopped, everything leveled out within the target range.

He began having another symptom of skin rash/eczema and I got on the Internet to find out more about ACE inhibitors. Once we found out it was based on the venom of a Brazilian pit viper snake, the symptoms he's been experiencing were completely understandable.

He's now cut his ACE inhibitor in half, and is still in the target range on the blood pressure. We feel like that with a bit more time on the formula, he will be off of these medicines.

These ingredients have given me my husband back.

Thank you so much!

Best regards,
Ann and Dan R .

I am 45 years old and have been diagnosed with having high blood pressure (150 over 93). Because of my medical plan changing I have seen several different doctors, over a 2 year period, all are family practitioners. Each doctor prescribed different blood pressure medicine which I took and followed there direction. I saw no difference in my blood pressure. My biggest problem was with the side effects of each drug.

Then my life changed when I started taking these ingredients. I have seen my blood pressure drop to 125 over 79 in 2.5 months. I no longer take blood pressure prescription medication and my doctor considers my blood pressure to be normal, I agree. Thank you.

Two months ago, despite swimming and jogging for an hour each day, my blood pressure was 187 over 98. I freaked. After using these ingredients for just
9 weeks now I am already down to 144/84. I know that it takes most people 3 months to get it down but I am very pleased so far.

I have been using these ingredients for 2 1/2 months and my blood pressure has dropped from about 180/100 to an
average of 125/80. This decrease occurred without other medication. My doctor wanted to put me on an ace-inhibitor medication but I decided to take these ingredients instead. I'm glad I did.

What Is It?

Lecithin is a fatty substance manufactured in the body and widely found in many animal- and plant-based foods, including eggs, liver, peanuts, soybeans, and wheat germ. Lecithin is often used as an additive in such processed foods as ice cream, margarine, and salad dressings, because it helps blend (or emulsify) fats with water. Lecithin is also available in supplement form.

Lecithin is considered an excellent source of choline, one of the B vitamins. Once in the body, a key component of lecithin--phosphatidylcholine--breaks down into choline. Now available in dietary supplement form, phosphatidylcholine (PC) might be thought of as a purified Extract of lecithin. It is commonly recommended for treating liver, nerve, and a variety of other conditions, including multiple sclerosis and memory loss.

Lecithin and choline help form cell membranes and transport fats and nutrients into and out of cells.

These nutrients also play a vital role in keeping the nervous system healthy.

Health Benefits

Lecithin Extract Counters Brain Aging

One of lecithin’s most effective brain-protecting extracts is phosphatidylserine, a naturally occurring compound found in every cell membrane in the body. Phosphatidyl-serine supports healthy levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, facilitates brain cell energy meta-bolism, and provides structural support for brain cell membranes. While phosphatidylserine has demonstrated impressive results in clinical trials, you will soon learn how combining it with DHA can improve its efficacy even more.

Several studies confirm the benefits of phosphatidylserine as a key component in fostering healthy brain function. Additional studies suggest that phosphatidylserine is helpful not only in treating cognitive decline, but also in avoiding its onset.

For example, a clinical study was conducted of dementia patients aged 65-91. One group received 300 mg of phosphatidylserine daily while the other was given a placebo. At the end of the six-week trial period, the phosphatidylserine group showed significant improvement over the placebo group in all measured tests of memory and cognition.

In another placebo-controlled, double-blind study, Alzheimer’s patients taking 300 mg of phosphatidylserine daily performed significantly better on standardized memory tests at the end of the 12-week trial period than did the study participants who received placebo. Importantly, those patients who were the least afflicted by dementia demonstrated the greatest benefit from phosphatidylserine therapy. These results suggest that beginning supplementation very early on, or perhaps even before the appearance of symptoms, can help prevent age-related loss of memory and other cognitive impairments.

Another study compared the effects of phosphatidylserine to placebo in 425 elderly patients, each with some degree of cognitive decline. When compared to a control group taking placebo, those receiving 300 mg a day of phosphatidylserine significantly improved their scoring on tests measuring both cognitive and behavioral performance. The people taking phosphatidylserine also showed markedly improved motivation, initiative, interest in surrounding environments, and socialization. Throughout the six-month trial, no one taking phosphatidylserine exhibited any side effects.

Positron emission tomography (PET) imaging measures energy production across the brain. In advanced-stage Alzheimer’s patients, PET scans revealed that after taking 500 mg of phosphatidylserine each day for three weeks, every study participant showed significantly enhanced glucose metabolism across all brain regions, compared to baseline scans.

Treat memory loss or impairment

Many nutritionally oriented doctors consider phosphatidylcholine a valuable nerve-building nutrient that might be able to help slow or reverse memory loss. As a phospholipid--a Fat-soluble substance--this nutrient serves as a major structural component of brain cells.

Perhaps even more important, phosphatidylcholine plays a key role in supplying sufficient choline to the brain, where it's used to manufacture the Neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Levels of acetylcholine are known to dwindle with age and this decline is associated with age-related memory impairment.



Protect the liver from alcohol abuse and hepatitis

Phosphatidylcholine is believed to speed the flow of fats and cholesterol through the liver, prevent the buildup of fats within the liver, and assist the liver in eliminating dangerous toxins from the body.

A 10-year study of baboons found that lecithin prevents two serious side effects of alcohol abuse: severe liver scarring and cirrhosis. Other research suggests that it may also be suitable for liver problems caused by hepatitis. There are no human studies so far, however.

Choline is frequently found in combination with such liver-strengthening ingredients as the B Vitamin inositol, the amino acid methionine, and the herbs dandelion and milk thistle in preparations called lipotropic combinations.


Prevent gallstones

Low levels of lecithin, an important constituent of the fat-digesting substance known as bile, may promote gallstones. That's why taking lecithin supplements (or its purified extract, phosphatidylcholine) may help to avert often painful gallstones.
