NRF2 Hits the News!

The National Cancer Institute Cancer Therapy Evaluation Program JUST approved the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center to start clinical research of the Nrf2 pathway this month.

THE STUDY: “A Phase II Basket Trial of Glutaminase Inhibitor (BeGIN) CB-839 HCl in Patients with NF1 Aberrations, NF1 Mutant Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumors (MPNST), KEAP1/NRF2 and LKB1 Aberrant Tumors”

What does that mean?

Well, a “malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor” (MPNST) is a tumor that develops in the protective lining that covers nerves. The first symptom of MPNST is often a lump or mass that increases in size, sometimes causing pain or a tingling sensation. So in short, it’s not a good thing!!!

What does it mean for us?

The take home message is quite simple: EVERYBODY who wants to reduce their risk of chronic disease needs to be Nrf2 Activated on a daily basis!

Nrf2 is a potent modulator of antioxidant response and can rapidly target oxidative stressors. While Nrf2 responds to oxidative stress directly, certain key nutrients can improve this effect, the exact source of these nutrients varies widely but certain vegetables can help… and of course, the #littleyellowpill has been compounded in the “right” ratio and has been proven to reduce Oxidative stress as much as 40% in just 30 days!

My Story

“I’ve been struggling with high blood pressure since my early 40’s. Despite my active life as a water skier, snow skier and cyclist, I was still looking at being on two different blood pressure medications. My diet hasn’t been ideal but certainly improving and my stress level has gone down as well – all contributing factors to blood pressure.

My husband Robin introduced me to ‘Nrf2 activation’ in 2014 as a way to help with inflammation and overall health. Soon after I found my blood pressure dropping. A lot. I started halving one of the medications, and then taking the half every other day. My doctor finally said no more, stop taking it. Hallelujah happy day!

I started to wonder if it was just a fluke sometime later and stopped taking ‘Nrf2’ for about a month. Back up went the blood pressure. Back on the ‘Nrf2’!

As an athlete I’m also no stranger to the benefits of Aleve. Naproxen has been my friend for muscle aches and pains for years. In retrospect I realized that I had reduced my use of Aleve to only a few times a year, if that. Something is working here!

I still need to work on improving my diet and workout habits but I’m a firm believer in the benefits of ‘Nrf2’. It’s not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle but it’s a fantastic supplement to one!”
