FAQs - opti-MY-WISE life®
- COVID-19, multiple sclerosis, ALS, Alzheimer's or Parkinson's disease:
1. Tarek: 'Should all healthcare workers be taking the Chronic Pain product to help them through the long hours on their feet during COVID-19?'
2. Samuel: 'Would the Brain Well-Being product be useful for the chronic nerve and neurological changes being experienced by some people post COVID-19 as it helps nerve health?'
Response from opti-MY-WISE life: Thank you for your questions.
Tarek: I agree that preventing back problems is always better than finding a cure. Although it can be taken by healthy people, opti-MY-WISE life® is most effective for people who have cellular stress associated with chronic pain.
Samuel: In a mild illness, the COVID-19 is damaging nerves and tissue in the brain and spinal cord (Speth MM, Singer‐Cornelius T, Oberle M, Gengler I, Brockmeier SJ, Sedaghat AR. Mood, anxiety and olfactory dysfunction in COVID‐19: evidence of central nervous system involvement?. The Laryngoscope. 2020 Jan 1). Improving brain, spinal health and well-being is what brain well-being by opti-MY-WISE life® was designed for as an aid for recovery. This would be a therapeutic target to test. These questions have arisen from the USA COVID19 experience and customers are purchasing the brain well-being product for this purpose. Fortunately, here in Queensland, Australia we have not experienced COVID19 in large numbers to be in a position to test these ideas.
Could the Brain Well-Being product by opti-MY-WISE life® be useful for multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease or ALS?
Response from opti-MY-WISE life: According to Nitika Jaiswal. Protective effect of Flavonoids in Multiple Sclerosis. Journal of Scientific and Innovative Research 2013;2(3):509-511 the active ingredient of opti-MY-WISE life has a potential role as an inhibitor of myelin phagocytosis for multiple sclerosis and is thought to be beneficial for Alzheimer's, ALS or Parkinson's disease. I must stress that this is early research and is not verified clinical trials. The potential benefit of opti-MY-WISE life would presumably be as a neuroprotective agent for the health of astrocyte structures and myelin sheaths in the brain. Further work is required to test this idea.
