Detoxification Support

Dear Friends

Original copy
The Original Synbiotic is a daily probiotic for the whole family.

The Original probiotics are researched pedigreed strains of lactic acid bacteria that support the development of a healthy GI tract microbiome.

A healthy gut microbiome is dependent on strong and proven probiotics, such as the Original strains. The Original Synbiotic provides a powerful symbiotic combination of Lactobacillus acidophilus (ATCC 4356), Streptococcus thermophilus (ATCC 19258), Lactobacillus plantarum (ATCC 8014), Lactobacillus rhamnosus (ATCC 7469) and Bifidobacterium longum (ATCC 15707).

Our chosen probiotics are foundational ATCC strains shown in research to work together with human cells to perform many functions in the body. For example, these probiotic strains help the digestive system, support and balance the immune system, and enhance our nervous system by producing neurotransmitters. They reinforce the GI barrier function to protect us from xenobiotics and pathogens, even binding heavy metals. Moreover, they neutralize carcinogens such as those caused by heterocyclic amines found in blackened meat and elements such as nitrosamines in sausage. By acidifying the epithelial membrane, they enable the absorption of minerals such as calcium and magnesium more readily. And lastly, our chosen strains also support the important task of daily regularity (Syngia et al., 2016; Hardy et al., 2013; Figueroa‐González et al., 2011; Ng et al., 2009).

The Original Synbiotic suggested daily dose: one tsp daily.

Of the many beneficial functions needed to be performed by our probiotic friends, colonizing the GI tract membrane and thereby protecting from our body from pathogens and xenobiotics, is very important. Check out these studies on colonization (Toscano et al., 2017; Underwood et al., 2015; Panigrahi et al., 2008; De Champs et al., 2003; Sarem- Damerdji et al., 1995).

Weight-Less

September 22, 2017

Dear Friends                                                                                                                                                      WL Low Cropped Jpeg

Recent research has shown the link between chronic hyperglycemia, oxidative stress, and weight gain. Hyperglycemia puts our body into a state of oxidative stress, which leads to many pathologies such as diabetes mellitus, obesity, cancer, and cardiovascular diseases (Domingueti et al., 2016).

Ingredients of Weight-Less per capsule

  • 7-Keto DHEA- 25mg (helps to burn fat)
  • 2 Brown Seaweed extracts- 200mg (help to lower and prevent high blood sugar levels, offers a strong anti-inflammatory, and supports weight loss)

Take 1 – 2 capsules of Weight-less one-half hour before meals, especially important before your carbohydrate (or meat) laden meals.* (See Green Facts on meat and diabetes)

Food Science

The ingredients in Weight-less have been shown to reduce both the states of hyperglycemia and oxidative stress. The Kelp and Bladderwrack polyphenol extracts (phlorotannins) offer organic-certified bioactive ingredients that (1) act on amylase and glucosidase enzymes to optimize post-meal blood glucose and insulin responses and (2) demonstrate that they have a high total antioxidant activity as verified by the Total ORAC 6.0 assay.

The phenols in the kelp and bladderwrack have superior antioxidant activity – a neutralizing effect – on the primary free radical superoxide anion. Superoxide  anion is known as the “mother of  free radicals” because  it also can become a hydroxyl ROS, a nitrogen RNS and a hydrogen peroxide ROS.

Thus, Weight-Less helps prevent post-meal hyperglycemia and has a direct scavenging action on excess free radical generation.  The key is not to totally neutralize all free radical activity but to bring about a healthy redox homeostasis.

Dear Friends

Dr. George Kessler, Dr. Artemis Morris, and myself have started to work on a Therapeutic Food’s protocol book.

This first protocol from Dr. Kessler and myself is designed to support the detoxification process.

In today’s modern world we battle a monster, which is the underlying cause or at least a contributing factor of many or most of our health problems.  It can make us express or create genetic weakness, feel ill in numerous ways and create the diseases of modern life.  I am, of course, referring to environmental toxins, the bane of modern civilization.

A Therapeutic Food protocol to support detoxification:

Scientific Rational:

Excessive exposure to toxic heavy metals or persistent organic pollutants (POPs) from diet or environment is inevitable amid [our present energy based] industrialization and [the subsequent] pollution.  Understanding of the detoxification ability amongst nutrients in plant based food offers therapeutic and preventive effects against these toxins (Chung, 2015).

Garlic prevents methyl mercury-induced cytotoxicity in peripheral blood leukocytes (Abdalla, 2010), and protects against methyl mercury neurotoxicity in the brain (Belle, 2009). Garlic prevents cadmium-induced kidney damage and decreases the oxidative damage due to lead in rats (Suru, 2008); as well as reduces tissue lead concentrations (Senapati, 2001).

Chlorella supports the detoxification of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (Yang et al., 2015) and inorganic mercury (Wu & Wang, 2014). Researchers investigated the influence of Chlorella on the excretion and tissue accumulation of methylmercury in mice.  The reduction of Hg levels in the kidney and brain were significant (Siao, 2011).

Phyto Power with its combination of wild-crafted rosehip, blueberry and dandelion supports the shifting of the body’s reserves to become more alkaline which enhances its ability to detoxify (Minich, 2007). Denev et al., (2014) found rosehips and blueberries to supply the most potent inhibitors for lipid peroxidation.

Beta Glucan High Potency Synbiotic contains powerful pedigreed strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species. Research demonstrates that probiotic supports the binding of lead and cadmium to their cell surface and hold on to them through defecation.  Singh and Sharma (2010) showed that L. acidophilus was able to bind and remove arsenic found in drinking water.  Robinson and Tuovinenn (1984) demonstrated that L. rhamnosus reduces the bioaccumulation of mercury and arsenic in pregnant women and children.  Shrivastava et al. (2003) found that Lactobacilli can transform chromium (CrVI) to its less toxic form (CRIII). The fibers and probiotic combination in the Beta Glucan support the regularity of the GI tract to remove toxins and help those with IBS or other gastrointestinal disorders (Lacey at al., 2015; Sarowska et al., 2013).

Cruciferous vegetables contain secondary metabolites termed glucosinolates that break down to products that upregulate hepatic detoxification enzymes.  These enzymes are called phase II enzymes and are responsible for phase II liver detoxification—a critical component in the body’s detoxification processes (Nho CW, Jeffery E., 2001).  Our cruciferous sprouts magnify production of the glucosinolates 100 fold.

Heavy Metal Detox

November 18, 2015

Dear Friends

Heavy metals are shown to be amongst the worst toxic chemicals. But research also shows the place of probiotics in detoxifying heavy metals. For your consideration: add Bioimmersion’s probiotics. Here’s why.

  • Original Synbiotic Formula- one teaspoon daily.
  • Supernatant Synbiotic Formula- one capsule daily.

Rational

The food and water we consume are often contaminated with a range of chemicals and heavy metals, such as lead, cadmium, arsenic, chromium and mercury, that are associated with numerous diseases.  Species such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, present in the mouth, gut, and vagina have the ability to bind and detoxify these metals.

Halttunen et al. (2007) showed that Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species can bind lead and cadmium to their cell surface, and hold on to them through defecation.  Singh and Sharma (2010) showed that L. acidophilus was able to bind and remove arsenic from water. Robinson and Tuovinen (1984) demonstrated that L. rhamnosus in yoghurt reduced the bioaccumulation of mercury and arsenic in pregnant women and children.  Shrivastava et al. (2003) showed that lactobacilli can transform chromium (CrVI) to its less toxic form (CrIII).

Clinical Notes:

Having both the Supernatant Synbiotic Formula and the Original Synbiotic Formula gives you the option of taking a capsule or a powder.  Both formulas provide excellent support for the chelation and detoxification of toxic heavy metals.  They both contain multiple, but different, species of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium.  If you want the maximum diversity of species take a capsule of Supernatant in the morning and a teaspoon of Original before bed (or vise versa).
