Indium is an exciting new discovery that somehow has fallen “under the radar.” But there’s even a book about it – cleverly titled “Indium” – in with author Dr. Robert Lyons states, “”Let Indium turn back your biological clock. Researchers believe that Indium may help you look and feel years – even decades – younger.” He states that Indium users report a burst of youthful benefits including more energy, -enhanced senses of smell and taste, weight loss, more restorative and rejuvenating sleep, improvements in skin and hair tone and color, increased libido, and better moods.

Indium has been shown to have age-related benefits, including improving memory, increasing libido, keeping weight stable and regulating blood sugar levels. However, new research has found that indium helps improve the absorption of essential trace elements – such as copper, manganese, and chromium, copper and zinc – in the body, thereby allowing them to perform their functions more efficiently.

Dr. Henry Schroeder, author of “The Trace Elements and Man”, found in his early studies that Indium supplementation increased the utilization of trace elements by 142%.

How it Works
Indium appears to work via the hypothalamus/pituitary/adrenal (HPA) feedback loop complex. Your hypothalamus is the key to homeostasis and parasympathetic functions such as breathing, body temperature, food and water intake, and stimulation of the gastrointestinal tract.

Your pituitary controls growth hormone release, sexual glands and the function of your adrenal glands. Your adrenal glands produce sterols such as adrenalin, epinephrine, and cortisol. These hormones down regulate the effects of inflammation as well as the perception of pain, fatigue, and mental alertness.

Balancing the feedback of your HPA complex synchronizes the function and production of at least thirty-one hormones. This synchronization produces a feeling of euphoria and well-being in most users.

One of the theories regarding the aging process is that it involves the decreased production of certain hormones as we get older. Indium appears to counteract this by balancing and synchronizing the HPA complex, the hypothalamus, pituitary and adrenal glands. These hormones control sleep, metabolism, body temperature, appetite, blood pressure, sex desire and many other body functions.

Indium stimulates hormonal production back to youthful levels by stimulating the HPA master hormone producers. These hormones then circulate throughout the body and help prevent and fight various aspects of the aging process – for example, supplies of growth hormone are boosted, which controls metabolism and affects bone density.

Indium also potentiates your thyroid gland and supports proper thyroid levels, more calories are burned and weight is normalized.

Fitness/Training Applications
Immediate increased energy and strength is one of most reported effects of Indium by sports and fitness users. Most of the benefits of Indium occur within 5-10 days of supplementation.
Within one week the regular exerciser, who normally stop exercising due to muscular pain and fatigue should be able to increase their workout by 10% before reaching the pain threshold as indium helps reduce the painful buildup of lactic acid by removing it more quickly from the tissues.

You will find an extended limit to the activity as it hastens the removal of the lactic acid build-up in muscle mass. This causes the pain of lactic acid build-up to take longer to accumulate. In one very recent study with Indium conducted in Budapest, Hungary, 13 of 15 members of the National Kung Fu Championship Team demonstrated significantly increased their stamina after eight weeks of indium supplementation.

Anecdotally, a group of distance runners reported 30% increase in running distance for the same time in just two weeks, and a group of weight lifters recently reported increasing their bench press by 40% in 60 days.

It also appears to aid or enhance the master hormone function (the pituitary and hypothalamus glands in particular) in the system. These glands direct the function of 40 endocrine glands and help balance 31 hormones.

Indium Supplementation is Safe 
Indium is water-soluble and does not remain in your system. Even the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has determined Indium is totally safe even at 20,000 times the recommended dosage.

Additional reported benefits of Indium include:

  • increased endurance
  • improved memory
  • better sleep
  • help with migraine headaches
  • healthier blood sugar levels (with some diabetic patients reducing their insulin by 80 %)
  • normalization of blood pressure (with high blood pressure going down and low blood pressure going up)
  • reduction in incidence of lip and lung cancers
  • improved hair growth
  • lessened menopause symptoms
  • alleviation of hypertension
  • more youthful appearance
  • elevated immunity activity
  • reduced severity and duration of colds
  • drop in prostate PSA levels (as much as 75%)
  • increased libido in both men and women

With a long list of documented benefits like that, doesn’t Indium look like a supplement you should add to your nutrition and fitness program right away?

Indium is hard to find, but it’s just one of the powerful, all-natural ingredients in Define Fitness Formula for Women [] and Dr. Summers’ Fitness Formula for Men Dr. David Summers is best known as the inventor of the Endothio-CR and is the CEO of Metabolic Research, Inc.
