In one of those unfortunate ironies in life, the man who was involved in researching the benefits of cGP has now come to use it on a daily basis for his own health battle.
Now retired, Ernest worked at Auckland University at the Centre for Brain Research for many decades, especially looking at how cGP can help stroke victims. Diagnosed with diabetes, Ernest is working hard to manage the disease and its impact on his body and knows that his cGP levels play an important role in this.
A well-known symptom of diabetes is loss of feeling in the legs and feet as a result of a lack of blood and oxygen circulating around the body. Without this essential circulation, nerve endings start to die, which results in thinning of the skin and numbness in the limbs.
Knowing this, Ernest wasn’t too surprised when a regular trip to the podiatrist revealed through a ‘touch test’ that he was losing sensitivity in his feet. The situation deteriorated and it got to the point where the podiatrist could get to work on his feet and he would feel almost nothing at all.
Ernest knew that this wasn’t good news.
Lack of blood supply to the legs and feet is a common symptom for people with diabetes and the consequences can be severe, sometimes resulting in amputation.
Knowing from his research that cGP occurs naturally in the body, but decreases with age, Ernest started taking cGP Max™ to help boost his cGP levels, which would in turn help provide oxygen to his brain and nerve-endings.
“If you don’t get enough blood into the brain, cells will die, and this leads to aging. Diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Vascular Dementia are caused by lack of blood to the brain,” says Ernest.
“cGP keeps your brain going. It all relates to circulation in the brain. Fix that and you fix so many things. I recommend it to everyone, regardless of their health.”
Recently Ernest went to his regular podiatrist's appointment. This time the 'touch test' had him almost jumping out of his seat with pain. He is gaining back the feeling in his feet, and while this means future podiatry work might be more uncomfortable, it is something he celebrates.
Ernest’s nerve endings are repairing themselves as a result of his increased cGP levels. The cGP is undoing some of the damage done by his diabetes and the prospect of Ernest maintaining good circulation and avoiding the complications of lost nerve-endings is insurmountable in terms of his quality of life.
Ernest is now walking proof of the years of research into cGP that he had helped to conduct.
He never forgets to take his daily dose of cGP and believes that over time, it has also given him better clarity of thought and improved memory. Ernest enjoys playing a game called Catan with his wife, which relies on recall and strategising and finds he can remember things more easily. He also has better energy levels, another benefit he puts down to the increased cGP levels in his body and has recently taken up learning the piano.
