CORALVILLE, Iowa, Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Pinnaclife, Inc., owned by McCord Research Inc., and founded by Darlene McCord, Ph.D., FAPWCA, produces supplements that promote the health of both the gut (digestive tract) and the brain. The gut has been called the second brain due to its many analogies with the cognitive brain, including the use of its own neural network and neurotransmitters, and its ability to sense the environment and danger. In addition, the second brain (gut) produces most of the body's serotonin and is impacted by antidepressants and sleep medications.
Dr. McCord recognizes that the health of the gut relates directly to the health of the brain due to the known connections between the second brain and cognitive brain, including signals from the gut microbiome and the gut's complex immune system.
Pinnaclife supplements including Brain Health, Joint Health, Detox Support, Mood Support, Energy Support, Olivamine10, Multivitamin, Omega-3, D3+Magnesium, and Prebiotic Fiber, all contain Olivamine10, a synergistic blend of antioxidants, vitamins, and amino acids that help protect against oxidative stress and inflammation. Oxidative stress and inflammation have been linked with digestive and neurodegenerative diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), Alzheimer's disease, and Parkinson's disease.
Dr. McCord is a renowned nutritional biochemist as well as CEO and CSO at Pinnaclife, Inc. and McCord Research, Inc. She created Olivamine10 to provide supportive nutrition, promote health, and help protect the body against many diseases linked to oxidative stress and inflammation including cancer and cardiovascular disease.
Dr. McCord has been using the knowledge derived from scientific research discoveries to formulate her health products for over 30 years. In addition, she is the creator of the most successful skin and wound care product line in North America that is also based on Olivamine. Nancy Ray, Ph.D., Director of Quality and Scientific affairs at McCord Research, is promoting gut and brain health by giving scientific and educational presentations at various health-related conferences.
