Amazed at the difference in my skin after only 3 treatments. I am an Elemis fan and have many of their products in my regular skincare regime and am always happy to try new products. I received the cream-oil in a special value package which contained many of my favourites and included this and the frangipani oil which I hadn't yet tried. I used the peptide4 on Wednesday evening after cleansing, the smell is absolutely wonderful, it absorbs quickly and doesn't leave any stickiness. I used it again on Thursday evening and when I woke on Friday I did see a difference in my skin, usually my skin has a slight shine across the T-Zone regardless of what night cream or treatment I have applied but this wasn't the case this morning. I applied it again last night and woke to the same result, shine free skin that definitely looked refreshed and healthy and it feels so soft, I will definitely continue to use this, well done to Elemis a beautiful and very welcome addition to my collection.
This is a little bit of repeated information, and we’re going to move through this quickly because you’ve heard it before. It’s about the nature of neuroendocrine tumors. Remember that the phrase “neuroendocrine tumors” refers to a big bowl of fruit. It’s a family of fruit, and within that family are carcinoids, in there are insulin-secreting tumors, in there are probably medulloblastomas, and probably neuroblastomas. So, different types of fruit, but they all fall within the basket of neuroendocrine tumors. They’re derived, as I said to you earlier, from neural crest origin. They arise primarily, as we heard from Dr. Warner, from the gut. In adults, 60% of the all neuroendocrine tumors are carcinoid; 72% arise in the midgut and hindgut, and 22 or 23% of those, 60% are then in the pancreas, the foregut, part of the pancreas, stomach, or lung. You can see they’re episodically secreting. Why do they episodically secrete? Why do people with growth hormone excess not always look huge and big all their lives? The answer to that question is that the secretion of growth hormone is under the control of the somatostatin molecule as part of a complex set of counter-regulation mechanisms. What’s controlling it? Most probably somatostatin, because somatostatin binds to the growth hormone secreting cell and blocks the synthesis and release of growth hormone. That’s why the symptoms are not often present and sustained when you have it early on, as Dr. Warner pointed out. They’re episodic because somatostatin controls the secretion, and the secretion becomes normal. It controls serotonin release; it controls substance P release; it controls gastrin release so you don’t burn your stomach out with too much acid all the time. Then when they become tumors, these neuroendocrine cells grow slowly and overwhelm the somatostatin, your protective system.
What I can’t understand is the journos asking various people about using Peptides etc. They are already using Peptids aren’t they? Peptides are legal. Only a certain few are against the code. It annoys me that Journos are just blanketing the “peptide” word everywhere and perpetuating a snowball of mis-understanding about the chemistry and what is legal now and what isn’t. When they shove a microphone in someones face, it would be nice to have someone with a bit of knowledge asking the questions as well.
