Dr. Petrosino's Biography Directions
Parkinson's Disease and Glutathione


My Story

01-06-99 As a clinical scientist and a certified nutritionist, I probably would have never tried Calorad® if it had not been recommended to me by my best friend, Scott.

01-10-99 Purchased and started using Calorad® for the first time.

01-17-99 Day 7 - Weight loss ...4 lbs.

01-24-99 Day 14 - I lose 4 more lbs and decide to become a distributor!

02-10-99 Day 30 - I finish my first bottle and lose .. another 4 lbs for a total of 12 pounds!

02-10-99 Day 30 I have lost almost 12 pounds and over two and a half inches off my waist within my first four weeks on Calorad®.

02-10-99 Day 30 My wife, Lynn, loses three pounds and a total of five inches in the same time period.

02-24-99 Six weeks on the product. I experience increased energy, improved sleep, and several lipofuscin deposits (age spots) on my hands recede and totally disappear.

03-03-99 My wife, who previously suffered from frequent and rather severe bouts of insomnia, now 'sleeps like a baby.'

04-07-99 My teenage son and daughter also start to use the product and experience similar weight loss and muscle toning.

05-11-99 My sister loses 10 pounds and two dress sizes in three weeks, and she loves the product.

11-07-99 I decide to spread the word online, and establish my nutrition advisor website.

As a clinical scientist with a doctorate in nutrition, I can truly say that Calorad® is one of the best diet products I've ever seen!

In the 4 1/2 years since, we have sold over $1 million dollars of Calorad® online, and have seen many great Calorad® success stories.

Sincerely, Dr. Steven Petrosino, Ph.D. (nutrition)

Glutathione and Parkinson's Disease:

Glutathione augmentation appears to be beneficial in Parkinson's disease. Although data suggests that milk (primarily pasteurized milk) appears to be associated with an increased incidence of PD, glutathione augmentation in Parkinson's Disease (which can be accomplished with bioactive whey protein, a fraction or isolate of unpasteurized milk) appears to offer some benefit.
