Here are Bulletproof Labs we are constantly getting new research and field reports on the advanced technologies we utilize. Today a very interesting report came through (packed with scientific articles!) on experiences with the Atmospheric Cell Trainer (CVAC) which we would like to share with you. While research still continues, there is growing research on the mechanism by which Atmospheric Cell Training can improve brain function after TBI. See update from CVAC below.
“CVAC corporation was invited to speak at the NFL Retired Players Congress held on July 21st & 22nd at the Hyatt Regency in Long Beach, CA.
Marvin Cobb, President of the NFL Retired Players Congress in the CVAC System, at his meeting at the Hyatt Regency in Long Beach:
Marvin Cobb has used this CVAC System along with Ron Brown and Bob Grant. They are the leadership of the NFL Retired Players Congress. Bob Grant was interviewed about his use of the CVAC System for this article.
There are now many retired NFL Players using CVAC to improve their brains. This is our hypothesis as to why:
The major breakthrough in understanding has been the Nedergard paper that identifies that CSF flows through the brain to clean it out. Additional here. We expect that if CSF flow is not adequate, the brain accumulates waste products leading to neuro-degeneration as posited in this study. In TBI CSF flow is decreased according to this study. CSF flow is regulated by inspiration according to this study. During inspiration, the pressure is lowered in the lungs to provide the motive for air to enter the lungs. During a CVAC Session the pressure in the lungs is lowered by as much as -400mmHg. We expect these pressure changes are transmitted to the brain through the venous system. We expect that during a TBI, cytoplasm and other cellular components are squeezed out of the cell into the space between the cells impairing CSF Flow. We believe that over time increasing CSF flow may wash out the glymphatic system restoring full flow.
This potential mechanism seems to explain much of what we observe in people who use the CVAC System as well as physical exercise and yoga breathing. It also may explain the conflicting results for HBOT studies in TBI.”
