Cold and Flu Support

Dear Friends

Viral infections? Don’t forget to add Chlorella to your protocol.
Chlorella Photo 2
Historically, Chlorella is known as a superfood with a wide range of phytochemicals such as carotenoids, vitamins, polysaccharides, and essential fatty acids. Since the 1950s, Chlorella has been found to have antimicrobial properties, akin to antibiotics (Borowitzka, 1986, 1995, respectively). A more recent study by Kwak and associates demonstrates Chlorella’s ability to boost several markers of the immune system.

An 8-week randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled study of Chlorella (5g) was conducted to see the immune/inflammation response in healthy humans. Kwak et al. (2012) primarily measured the cytotoxic activities of Natural Killer (NK) cells and serum concentrations of interferon-y, interleukin-1ß and interleukin-12, and found significant increases.

These results suggest a beneficial immune-stimulatory effect of short-term supplementation of Chlorella which enhances the NK cell activity and produces interferon-γ and interleukin-12 as well as interleukin-1β, the Th-1 cell-induced cytokines in healthy people.

As a short-term supplementation for immune stimulatory effect: 8-10 tablets of Chlorella. For maintenance, 4-6 tablets.

Dear Friends

Still dealing with the flu? Chest cold? Coughing?

We suggest a second consideration of Weight-Less.

What possible food has powerful anti-microbial abilities against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, and of course, promotes weight-loss, contains antidiabetic, anti-inflammatory, and antitumor properties? AND all this, plus, insanely high ORAC antioxidant?

Brown algae, from the fucaceae family!

Weight Less is composed of two brown algae from the Fucaceae family: Ascophyllum nodosum, known as kelp, and Fucus vesiculosus, or bladderwrack. Pholorotannins extracted from these algae show some of the highest and richest phenolic content, performing many biological activities (Catarino, Silva, & Cardoso, 2017).

Sandsdalen et al. (2003) has shown that a fucophlorethol derivative isolated from F. vesiculosus (bladderwrack) has a potent antimicrobial against Gram-positive bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureusStaphylococcus epidermidis, and Gram-negative bacteria, such as Escherichia coliProteus mirabilisPseudomonas aeruginosa, reducing their growth by 85% compared to controls.

A purified phlorotannin extract of A. nodosum is also shown to have potent anti-microbial properties against E. coli (Wang at al., 2009).

Together with 7 Keto, Weight-Less is a smart tool for immune boosting during the flu season. Boost treatment with Garlic and No 7.

New Cold/Flu Remedy

January 1, 2018

Dear Friends

Happy New Year!

Winter is upon us, and hence the cold and flu season. Our new year resolution: To strengthen our immune system.

An exciting BioImmersion product for the flu and cold season is our LactORN – the next generation probiotic. A must have flu/cold immune booster.

LactORN Bottle 2What is LactORN and how does it work?

LactORN contains the probiotic Lactobacillus casei grown in a way to retain its natural oligoribonucleotides (ORNs). Plus it contains the prebiotic inulin derived from organic chicory root. Dairy free. Soy free. Gluten free.

Take one tsp 1 and disolve in the mouth,  2-3 times a week for immune boosting.  If you have a cold/flu, take a teaspoon of LactORN plus a capsule or two of our Organic Garlic.

The Lactobacillus casei‘s ORNs are also called microRNAs, our immune boosting communication molecules. Across animal species, the LactORN has been shown to support immune system competencies to prevent infections caused by viruses and bacteria. It helps the body to protect itself from toxins.  Plus, it keeps the adaptive immune system from overreacting into septic shock.
Chlorella HZ

Organic Chlorella enhances the immune system’s ability to defend against and fight upper respiratory tract infections (URTI), and inhibit reactivation of dormant Epstein Barr Virus (EBV).

The adaptive immune system plays a crucial role in our mucosal membrane’s ability to ward off pathogenic microbial invasion.

Otsuki et al.’s (2011) research showed that chlorella supplementation increases mucosal SigA levels thereby enhancing our body’s mucous membrane’s barrier protection from bacteria and viruses.

In another 2011 study, Yamauchi et al. found that during intense training of athletes, those that showed a reduced level of SIgA had a greater chance of coming down with upper respiratory tract infections and/or an reactivation of latent viruses such as Epstein-Barr virus (EBV).  In their study, the EBV-DNA levels tended to be higher in subjects who exhibit sore throat and cough.  The SIgA level was significantly lower one day before the EBV-DNA expression.

Our Suggestion: Take 4 to 8 tablets of Organic Chlorella daily.

Garlic
Our Organic Garlic is an exceptionally potent supplement boasting four to five whole cloves of organic garlic in every capsule.  Known as the Russian Penicillin, garlic has been used for centuries therapeutically as a broad-spectrum antimicrobial; and over the last thirty years this has been our focus as well.

Each bottle contains 90 capsules of pure organic garlic with antimicrobial high actives.  This QAI Certified garlic is exceptionally potent at 10,000 ppm alliin.  At 400mg garlic per capsule this translates to 2.65 mg of allicin per capsule.

Our Suggestion:  Take one to two capsules and open them up, pouring the powder into a glass of water.  Stir, allowing the whole garlic clove powder to react with the water.  In about 40 seconds you will have freshly produced allicin, garlic’s premier antimicrobial substance.  Swig it around in your mouth, slowly swallowing.  You are treating the whole mucous membrane of the GI tract with this powerful broad spectrum antimicrobial for a lot of pathogens. You may add a teaspoon of No7 to the water for more system boosting of probiotics, nutriceuticals, and phyto nutrients.

Green Facts:

Globe_Home 3Immunoglobulin’s deficiency may exist in a significant percentage of patients with chronic or recurrent infections of the upper respiratory tract.  Adequate surface protection of the upper airway tract depends on intimate cooperation between natural non-specific defense mechanisms such as ciliary function and acquired adaptive immunity such as healthy SIgA levels (Daeli J, 2000).

An immunologic screening should be extended to patients who have persistent sinus infection, and Organic Chlorella is an option well worse using.
