Dear Friends

The scientific field of Longevity studies the forces that create chronic disease globally and the method that can reverse and prevent these illnesses.  We created potent formulas based on their studies and findings.

Immunosenescence and inflammageing are two key causative forces that are linked with the diseases of our time—metabolic syndrome, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, neurological disease, and other NCDs (Calder et al., 2017).

Franceschi (2014) has coined the term, Inflammageing:  As we age the concentration of pro inflammatory molecules increase in our blood stream—including acute phase proteins (CRP and serum amyloid A), cytokines (TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-6, IL-8), and adhesion molecules (sICAM-1 and sVCAM-1) amongst others.  The key to reversing chronic diseases and attaining a healthy life and longevity is to have plenty of anti-inflammatory molecules aboard and this can be attained through a specific diet and supplementation.

Immunosenescence:  One common characteristic of ageing is a decline in innate and acquired immune function, called immunosenescence, which increases ones susceptibility to infection.  The preserving of a healthy and strong immune system can be prolonged through a healthy anti-inflammatory food supplementation that turns on our endogenous antioxidant producing genes and networks; as well as to providing the kinds of fiberous and polyphenol rich foods that promote the development of a healthy, life- supporting gut microbiome.

BioImmersion’s Therapeutic Food Supplements are designed to mitigate micro-macro inflammation, the chronic low-grade inflammation (LGI) that is linked to our toughest chronic illnesses. Each formula is built with potent ingredients, concentrated foods that are highly researched as well as probiotics with their supernatant and ORNs (Holscher, 2017).

Dear Doctor

The proprietary mix of plant minerals and apple extract in our new product ENERGY was used in a double blind research by Joy et al. (2016). The research demonstrated that the mix increases energy and enhances performance during exercise. The mix also helped relax sore muscles from over exercising. We suggest one capsule a day or when you need extra energy.

ENERGY

The Research

Twenty-five healthy, resistance-trained, male subjects completed this double-blind study.  All subjects were prohibited from using any supplements not provided in the study except for a multivitamin or protein powder food substitute, which they were not permitted to use within 2 hours before or after resistance training sessions.

Each subject was required to be capable of lifting 1.5 times their bodyweight in the squat and deadlift and 1 times bodyweight in the bench press.  At baseline, the placebo group (PLA) was able to squat 1.71, bench press 1.45, and dead lift 2.17 times their bodyweight; and the treatment (TRT) was able to squat 1.66, bench press 1.31, and deadlift 1.93 times their bodyweight.

Subjects were randomly assigned to either the PLA or TRT groups.  The TRT got 1 serving of 150mg of the proprietary blend of Energy, which is one capsule. And, the PLA group got the placebo.  The single capsule dose was given 45 minute prior to training on training days or at a similar time of day on rest days.

The resistance training program, weeks 1-8, consisted of one muscle hypertrophy-oriented workout, one power-oriented workout, and one strength-oriented workout featuring cycle ergometer Wingates following strength training.

The back squat, bench press, and deadlift exercises were performed on each day along with several other multi- and single-joint exercises.  Participants rested 48-72 hours between each training day.  During the overreach phase (weeks 9 and 10), participants performed high volume workouts on Monday through Thursday with a strength-oriented workout or performance testing conducted on Friday for weeks 9 and 10, respectively.

The taper phase (weeks 11 and 12) consisted of one power day on Mondays then strength and power days on both Wednesdays and Fridays performed at low volume for back squat, bench press, and deadlift only.

The Results

Energy appeared to beneficially augment strength and power adaptations to resistance training and attenuate power loss during overreaching (over exercising).  Squat and deadlift IRM both increased to a greater degree in TRT than in PLA,  Peak power in the vertical jump seemed to increase as a result of training and supplementation, and vertical jump peak power and peak velocity did not decline following overreaching.  Strength endurance was preserved during overreaching in TRT compared to PLA. The proprietary blend of ancient peat and apple extracts may be better suited to resist performance decrements, as a decline in performance was only observed in the PLA group in the present study

The Chromium is here!

January 9, 2019

Dear Doctor

Our new Chromium has arrived!

The formula 9 times stronger, with 50mcg of elemental trivalent chromium per capsule (6mcg in the old chromium), and with high active beet root, standardized to 10,000ppm nitrate.

The new Chromium is also trivalent:  the ligand on each of the chromium ion ports is a molecule of nicotinic acid (in other words, niacin), in contrast to the nucleotide sugars from brewers’ yeast.

The supplemental facts on the label lists only the weight of the elemental chromium (50mcg), rather than the whole Chromium polynicotinate molecule, which is 500mcg.

The High Active Beet Root is also very powerful: it is standardized to offer a minimum of 10,000ppm plant nitrate. Our bodies convert plant nitrate into nitric oxide, an important nutrient that relaxes blood vessel muscles, opening up circulation. And of course, the high active beet root offers betalains, a unique polyphenolic molecule in beet root with very strong antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties.

Inflammation and Aging

January 2, 2019

Dear Friends,

Let’s continue our discussion on achieving longevity: What are the reason(s) behind the design of the No 7 New Longevity?

We defined longevity as a healthy state, free from  chronic illnesses.

The global numbers for chronic illnesses are alarming: chronic diseases are responsible for about 35 million deaths each year (United Nations, Ageing, 2017; Living Well, Dying Well, Chronic Illnesses, 2018, p. 119).

In the United States, 85% of people who are over 65 years of age suffer from one or two chronic illnesses, and nearly a quarter of children that are under 17 years old suffer one or more chronic conditions, with almost half of young to mature adults (18 to 64 years old) having one or more chronic illnesses (2018, Living Well, Dying Well, p. 120). That means that about a half of our population is constantly dealing with chronic conditions. On one hand, our life span has increased, but on the other hand, healthy longevity seems very far off the radar for people here and the world.

Did you realize that we actually have known that inflammation is a slowly debilitating killer since the late 1800s? Already in 1913, Dr. Arnold Lorand seminal work, Health and Longevity through Rational Diet, summarized the connection between inflammation and disease:

The majority of the diseases with which mankind is afflicted usually creep in through the accumulated effects of successive slight irritation, by the operation of apparently insignificant factors which are just sufficient to take part in some chemical reaction. (p. 115)

Calder et al. (2017) characterize aging as an increase in the concentration of inflammatory markers in the blood stream, a phenomenon that has been termed “inflammageing”(see Franceschi & Campisi, 2014; Franceschi et al., 2007; Franceschi et al., 2000).*

Key to longevity and anti-aging is the approach of calming inflammation, micro and macro inflammation, seen as the intrinsic biological aging clock (Luo et al., 2011). Along with inflammation, the ageing of the immune system, called immunosenescence, is an age-related decline of the immune system that leads to an increased frequency and severity of infectious diseases and certain cancers (Solana & Pawelec, 2004; Clements & Carding, 2016; Bauer & Fuente, 2014).

Immunosenescence is brought about by a continuous chronic antigenic (toxins inducing) immune response which then overloads the ability of the immune system to keep up with the demands for naïve cells, the component of cells that enable the body to fight off new, unrecognized infections or diseases (Candore et al., 2006; Calder et al., 2018).*

Once chronic inflammation is activated, it becomes a system-wide condition that leads to higher mortality rates from different illnesses (e.g., Bozzetto et al., 2018; AHA, 2017; Clements & Carding, 2016; Morrisette-Thomas et al., 2014). A study on 1018 Italian old persons demonstrated that higher levels of certain inflammation-related mediators such as IL- 6, IL-1ra ,TNA-a, TNF- a receptor II (TNFAR2) were associated with higher number of chronic illnesses, such as hypertension, diabetes, ischemic heart disease, stroke, cancer, Parkinson’s, hip fractures, joint diseases, anemia, kidney disease, and cognitive impairment (Fabbri et al., 2015).*

Longevity is a balanced state of pro- and anti-inflammatory mediators. By protecting the body against the harmful effects of inflammation with high levels of anti-inflammatory molecules, long-life with better health is attainable. For example, Le Couteur et al. (2016) explain the profound effects nutrition has on ageing and longevity, with animal studies showing longevity is achieved with a specific diet that is similar to the dietary traditions of the long-lived people on the island of Okinawa – a predominantly plant based diet.*

Many scientists have come to realize that health, longevity, and anti-aging are fundamentally dependent upon the correct nutritional strategy that facilitates and educates the body’s defense, repair, adaptation, and renewal functions (Calder et al., 2017; Mykytyn, 2005). *

In fact, scientific research insists upon the daily consumption of plant-based foods, probiotics and their fermented metabolites, plenty of fiber, and particular nutriceuticals to achieve and sustain longevity: the healthy systemic functions of the body (Seidelmann et al., 2018; Devi & Sekhar, 2018; Filosa et al, 2018; Donoiu et al., 2018; Iskar & Antonyak, 2018; Smith & Hsu, 2018; Holscher, 2017).*

The No7 Longevity is designed with what science considers the best nutritional molecules that support the body’s ability to to defend, repair, adapt and renew.

We will continue this conversation!
