Cholesterol Absorption Inhibitors (CAI's) in Foods, an Effective Way to Fight Obesity

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - April 28, 2010) -  Alfred T. Sapse, MD of Endogenous StemCell Activators Inc., released a statement today:

"CAI's are a new class of drugs and nutritional compounds that can prevent cholesterol from foods, the main cause of obesity, to penetrate the human body after crossing the small intestine barrier. At the present time there is only one CAI drug on the market, namely ZETIA® marketed by Merck, Schering, Plough, either alone or in combination with a statin under the name VYTORIN®. On the other hand there are a number of nutritional CAI's available in health food stores, one of the most remarkable being the amino-acid Acethyl L-Carnitine or L-Carnitine fumarate or ALC. ALC is capable to prevent up to 40% of the exogenous cholesterol brought into the body by fatty foods, cross the small intestine barrier and being able to oxidize (dissolve) fatty deposits inside the body, thus also being a fat metabolic agent. For more information about Carnitine please consult the Merck Manual, the Eighteen edition 2006, pages 19-20, also visit the Internet and click on 'Cholesterol Absorption Inhibitors' the same for the 'Acethyl L-Carnitine.'

"As such anybody can buy ALC at the nearest health food store and reading the instructions on the label intake two Carnitine tablets or caplets a day, preferably on an empty stomach.

"This is the good news, the bad news is that in order to show benefits L-Carnitine should be taken for weeks, months or more and if taken intermittently or stopping it all together, all beneficial effects would disappear quickly.

"I don't believe that even the most perseverant users of ALC would be able to stay on for long periods of time.

"In order to overcome this obstacle and achieve outstanding results a way should be found where ALC would be constantly present in one's body.

"The solution as being filed in my Preliminary Patent Application(s) submitted to the Patent and Trademarks office in Alexandria, VA is by introducing ALC (or any other CAI on my list) in foods, all types of foods, that one would eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks in between, plus all types of beverages and the results would be the same as described in the Internets, Cholesterol Absorption Inhibitors and Acethyl L-Carnitine chapters.

"All the CAI's on my list are tasteless (no change in the taste of food), water soluble, no change in texture and with a few exceptions, resistant to heat, no side effects and their introduction in foods or beverages would be no technical problem for the food and beverage companies.

"There are already precedents in introducing in food and beverages, vitamins, minerals and other items such as phosphorous, Iodine, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, Magnesium, Chromium, Molybden and others. But how about amino-acids in foods, since ALC is an amino sulfonic acid?

"A search on the internet shows that amino acids participate in many of the vital body functions, too many to count. So I gave up mentioning them. However, I noticed that Red Bull, an energy drink, that I am indulging in from time to time, contains Taurine, an amino sulfonic acid synthesized from L-Cysteine another amino-acid. As such here we have already an amino-acid precedent.

"Incidentally, the word Taurine comes from the Latin word taurus. The English translation of taurus is 'the bull.'

"In conclusion, I believe that the introduction of nutritional CAI's especially ALC in foods would be translated into substantial improvements in the health and the quality of life (QoL) of large masses of obese people and not only in the obese."
