Dear Friends

How can we best protect our brain from dementia?

Barbara Shukit-Hale’s (2012) research, Blueberries and neuronal aging, clearly demonstrates the power of blueberry and particularly blueberry extract in protecting and even reversing cognitive decline.  Good news for all of us!

Blueberry Extract is the most powerful blueberry extract on the market, our 100% North American blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum) provides a comprehensive profile of anthocyanins.

Scientists describe blueberries as agents of neuro-regeneration. Research studies show that blueberry and blueberry extract offer a potent and effective brain food to support cognition, memory, and the general health of our nervous system.

The Blueberry Extract is expensive: It takes 80 pounds of blueberries to get one pound of the pure purple extract. One capsule of this extract is equivalent to a cup and a quarter of whole blueberries.

  • Blueberry Extract- 1 capsule daily

Blueberry protects by lowering oxidative stress and inflammation or directly by altering the signaling involved in neuronal communication, calcium buffering ability, neuroprotective stress shock proteins, plasticity and stress signaling pathways. (Shukitt-Hale, 2012)

Click the link below, under References, for Shukit-Hale’s paper.  It will give you hope.  Order a bottle for yourself and religiously take in a capsule daily.  That will give you a 60 day trial.  Notice how your brain functions particularly after the steady dosing.

To promote brain health:  15% off on Blueberry Extract in June.

The brain is responsible for conscious control of movement, and alterations in motor function may include decreases in balance, muscle strength and coordination, while memory deficits are seen on cognitive tasks that require the use of special learning and memory. (Shukitt-Hale, 2012)

One capsule of Blueberry Extract offers a steady dose of the needed amount per the research.

Dear Friends

Senescence is the technical word for aging. It is the condition or process of deterioration with age- a loss of a cell’s power of division and growth. The question is, What does healthy ageing look like?

We certainly can see unhealthy ageing all around us- people ridden with chronic degenerative diseases.  Ageing is among the greatest known risk factors for most human diseases: of the roughly 150,000 people who die each day across the globe, about two thirds die from age-related causes (Dillin et al., 2014).

blueberry X 4So, what methods can be used today to support healthy ageing?  An ageing where our bodies may be slowing down but where our bodily systems are still functioning well.  How for example can we keep our brain sharp, even to the very end of our life?

Research suggests that the polyphenolic compounds found in fruits, such as blueberries, may exert protection against Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s diseases; that they do indeed provide benefits for cognitive health, protection, and restoration (Joseph et al., 2007).

Spencer’s (2010) research, Beyond antioxidants: the cellular and molecular interactions of flavonoids and how these underpin their actions on the brain, explores the potential inhibitory or stimulatory actions of flavonoids within three sytems:  The first, through their interactions with important neuronal and glial signaling cascades in the brain; second, through an ability to improve peripheral and cerebral blood flow and trigger angiogenesis and neurogenensis in the hippocampus; third, by their capacity to directly react with and scavenge neurotoxic species and pro-inflammatory agents produced in the brain as a result of both normal and abnormal brain senenscence.

Happy Earth Day 2018!

April 25, 2018

Dear Friends

Happy Earth Day everyone!!!

As you can see our new labels are starting to appear on our bottles.  In the next several month we should be fully transformed.

A few thoughts on Earth Day:

Supernatant Photo 5

There have been five Mass Extinctions of life on earth, the last occurring 65 million years ago with the extinction of dinosaurs.  The great fear now is that we are on the cusp of entering into the Sixth.  We are seeing species loss, habitats vanishing, ecosystems collapsing, atmospheric CO2 levels over 400 ppm- all precursor levels similar to those of life’s previous past calamities.  Ecologists, oceanographers, deep time paleontologists are saying that we may be approaching the tipping point- the point of no return.

In today’s world there are now over one billion people who are starving, and at the same time over one billion people who are overweight or obese.  We have a pandemic of chronic degenerative illnesses on a worldwide scale increasing affecting all ages—as a species Homo sapiens are in trouble.  Chronic illness is a hallmark of a species in decline.

Science today clearly recognizes that in order for us to reduce disease and gain back our health, we High ORAC Photo 3must  reduce pollution, manage pathogens differently, de-stress and  improve our dietary habits. Dramatic dietary changes are now being recommended by the most exalted bastions of medical research science, and that is to make our diet for the most part a whole food, plant-based diet,where animal foods, dairy and eggs are rarely if ever eaten.

The colonic microbiome is now considered as another organ: Our colon contains 100 trillion bacteria whose metabolic capacity is 100-fold that of our liver.  We are really a chimera of sorts- part human and part bacteria.  When we bring food into our body we are feeding both our human cells and the bacterial cells in our gut. Phyto Power Photo 6

The composition of the GI tract microbiome is largely dependent on the nature of our diet.  Our colon’s good bacteria, from species of the Bifidoand Lacto genera thrive on soluble carbohydrate fibers like inulin, pectin, beta glucans, and vegetable and fruit polyphenols.

When we eat fruits and vegetables our good bacteria break down carbohydrate fibers and berry polyphenols into a whole host of important health giving metabolites: SCFAs, antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, antimicrobials, and beneficial cell signaling molecules, enabling our body to defend itself from pollution, pathogens, and chronic inflammation. Chlorella Photo 6

Dietary habits of daily meat, saturated fat, trans-fats, sugar, etc. have supported the growth of more toxic bacteria in our gut.  Add to that the overuse of antibiotics and we are dysbiotic. We simply don’t eat enough fresh fruits and vegetables, and enough seeds, grains and fermented food that support the growth of friendly bacteria.

We must change our worldwide farming practices that poisons our soil into one that embraces eco-friendly agriculture.  As we create more local farms to feed local communities, worldwide, people’s health will begin to thrive.

WL Photo 5Such an accomplishment will dramatically lower our green house gasses, and pollution levels.  This is what our bodies need, but obviously we are a long ways from achieving such a sea-change.  In the mean time we do the best we can and support our diet with high quality dietary supplements that are backed by science.

The BioImmersion area of expertise:  Our specialty is organic plant-based nutriceuticals with a special focus on plant polyphenols and probiotics.  Plants can be only as potent as the soil from which they come and the farming methods employed.  We ulitize biodynamic farming, eco-agricultural practices, wild-crafted sourcing and harvesting, to maximize high-active potentials. No excipients are used in our products.

Sincerely yours,

Dear Friends
High ORAC Photo
High ORAC Synbiotic is back in and what a powerful formula it is.

With a potent mix of polyphenols and two pedigreed strains of colonizing Bifido and Lacto species.

  • The CFU per capsule of L. acidophilus and B. longum (50:50 mix) is over 25 billion.
  • 3000 ORAC value per capsule with grape seed extract, wild blueberry, quercetin, resveratrol, wild bilberry, cranberry, tart cherry, prune, raspberry and strawberry.
  • The organic chicory root inulin is 100mg.

We understand how upsetting back orders can be. One of our absolute commitments to you is creating the highest and most potent therapeutic foods, probiotics, and nutraceuticals. But to do so, at times, we have to reject batches of the raw materials. Plants and foods are unpredictable, with different moisture levels, potency, and consistency. The typical practice is to simply keep these batches and get a reduction in price to help profit margins. But this practice is not part of our sourcing, formulating, and manufacturing.

The BioImmersion’s products are truly special, and one of a kind in the supplement industry for multiple reasons. We make small batches of each product often to ensure therapeutic potency.  Our sourcing of raw materials is strict and thorough; plants are grown to produce very high actives.  We encapsulate without excipients, which means there are no flowing agents, fillers, or additives. We are currently the only company that fills every plant-based (vegan) capsule with only high active, powerful ingredients.  Our collaborating partners are holistic minded scientists, doctors,  farmers, and manufacturing experts — a network of thoughtful professionals who care greatly about your health.

It is very difficult, expensive, and time consuming to produce such fresh, pure, and powerful products in small batches. Please know that we have you in mind when we produce each and every batch of our products. Call us for suggestions on what to use as different foods and probiotics are multi-dimensional and can easily preform the same tasks.

To your health!
