Gastrointestinal Support

Dear Friends

Doctors and their patients are discovering the addictive taste of the No 7 Systemic Booster. The quality of this rich bitter chocolate taste comes alive with any juice: apple, orange, pineapple, any berry, and even carrot or beet. Taking the No 7 in just water produces a very dark, bitter, chocolate drink (although there is not chocolate in this mix!). But a little diluted juice, and the chocolate taste comes alive.

The No 7 Booster is a serious, uncompromisingly healthy drink. There are no sweeteners, fillers, or natural flavors to muck up the real power of the blend. Typically, artificial, natural, or even organic flavors have from 100-500 different components that are not required to be listed on the label. The No 7 is as pure as it is powerful.

The No 7 has our famous probiotic mix with its Supernatant and ORNs. For those of you who are waiting to have the LactORN back – we have the ORNs (known in the scientific literature as microRNAs) now in the No 7, High ORAC, Cranberry Pomegranate, and the Beta Glucan.  We have decided to pull the incredible immune boosting abilities of the microRNAs into our formulas.

Life is getting more polluted, and chronic illnesses more difficult to treat. The No 7 is an effective tool with high actives and polyphenols from purposely selected veggies, greens, fruits, berries, extracts, nutriceuticals, and our super probiotic mix.

To your health,

Dear Friends

Our famous High ORAC Synbiotic is now 10 times more potent. What’s new?

HO PhotoFirst, we added our new advanced Probiotic Super Blend, naturally occuring whole probiotics with their Supernatant and ORNs (oligoribonucleotides). The five pedigreed lactic acid bacterial strains in our Supernatant Synbiotic are excellent as post antibiotic care.

We also added the supernatant of each of these five effective probiotics: The supernatant includes their healing metabolites, enzymes, vitamins, lactic acid, bacterocins, biosurfactants, bile salt hydrolase, and so much more.

The full-spectrum antioxidant activity component of High ORAC Synbiotic is a property of its new proprietary blend of fruit, berries and bioflavonoids.  A blend that successfully reduces the five major categories of free radicals- the hydroxyl, peroxyl, peroxynitrite, singlet oxygen, and superoxide anion.  It is standardized to a minimum total ORAC score of 40,000 umol Trolox equivalent (TE) per gram as measured by the ORAC 5.0 assay. That is 10 times more potent!

One capsule a day will do nicely.

Food Science

Studies are showing that dietary polyphenols contribute to the maintenance of intestinal health by preserving the gut microbial balance through the stimulation of the growth of beneficial bacteria such as Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria while inhibiting that of pathogenic bacteria.

Dueñas et al.’s (2015) study, A survey of modulation of gut microbiota by dietary polyphenols, showed that the beneficial effects attributed to dietary polyphenols appear to be due more to phenolic metabolites formed in the gastrointestinal tract, mainly derived from the action of gut bacteria than to the original forms found in food.

This all occurs in the colon where the growth of good bacterial friends is enhanced by polyphenols while at the same time the beneficial attributes of the polyphenols are made possible by their reduction into shorter chain lengths by the enzymes of these good bacteria.  Making their antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammtory, healthy aging, cell signaling effects more bioavailable throughout the body.

Duda-Chodak et al. (2015) present possible pathways of polyphenol metabolism by intestinal bacteria and describe the diet-derived bioactive metabolites produced by gut microbiota, with a particular emphasis on polyphenols and their potential impact on human health.

We will talk much more about this in coming Forward Thinking newsletters.

Dear Friends

What is the connection between the microbiome and heart heatlh? The microbiome’s metabolites are emerging as the deciding influence for good or bad health. We will dive into this topic in the next couple of weeks (check green facts below).

BG photoAs Dr. JoAnn Manson, professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and chief of preventive medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital says in Healthy gut, Healthy Heart(2018):

There’s a complex interplay between the microbes in our intestines and most of the systems in our bodies, including the vascular, nervous, endocrine, and immune systems.  All of these relationships are highly relevant to cardiovascular health.

What we eat plays a major role in the composition of our gut microbiota.  And we’re learning more about how the substances gut microbes churn out (called metabolites) influence our risk for many chronic diseases, including diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.

The Beta Glucan High Potency Synbiotic: Cardio-Metabolic Support is a great product for seeding the gut with good pedigreed bacteria and prebiotic fibers that strongly support the integrity of the GI tract membrane, support the reduction of GI tract inflammation, support the strengthening and balancing of the immune system.

Probiotics are found in research to positively effect heart health (Kassaian et al., 2017; Sáez-Lara et al., 2016; DiRienzo, 2014; Delzenne et al., 2011; Saini et al., 2010), with many researchers positing the connection between heart and gut health (Serino et al., 2014; Huang et al., 2013).*

Oats and oat beta glucan have enjoyed a rich cultural historicity and extensive research on heart health (Andersson & Hellstrand, 2012).  Oats and oat beta glucan are found to reduce serum LDL cholesterol (Ho et al., 2016; Zhu et al., 2015; Whitehead et al., 2014; Wolever et al., 2010), improve liver function (Chang et al., 2013), and promote bowel regularity (Clemens, 2012; Mobley et al., 2014).*

Red beetroot offer a rich source of phyto-nutrients, including ascorbic acid (vitamin C), carotenoids, phenolic acids, and flavonoids. Beets provide a source of dietary nitrate, shown in research to have important implication for heart health (Kapil et al., 2014). Beet’s nutrients are shown to prevent oxidation of LDLs, lower triglycerides, and balances blood pressure (Clifford et al., 2015; Eggenbeen et al., 2016; Hobbs et al., 2013).*

Inulin from organic chicory root supplies food for the probiotic organisms. Probiotic organisms need fiber to grow and multiply. See Slavin (2013) on fiber as prebiotics, and Dehghan et al. (2013) on inulin and cardiovascular support.*  Together with probiotic, inulin is also found in research to help tighten cell junctions, which is thought to aid against leaky gut syndrome (Cani et al., 2007, 2007a, 2008, 2009).*

The Beta Glucan was formulated to nourish both heart and gut into health.*

Dear Friends

Did you know that polyphenols from berries and plants are the most favored foods for the probiotics genera Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium in the gut?

The berries and plants enhance the growth of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium inside the gut microbiome, while inhibiting many pathogenic organsims.

For example, Possemiers et al.’s (2011)  “The intestinal microbioime: a separate organ inside the body with the metabolic potential to influence the bioactivity of botanicals,” explains that rich polyphenolic molecules from berries and plants are broken down by probiotic organisms into many important sub-molecules that are more bioavailable yet still contain their classic polyphenolic structure to serve the body as antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, antimicrobials, anti cancer, anti diabetes and more  … no wonder berries and plants are the preferred prebiotics foods for the Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria!

Green Facts:

Globe_Home 3Phyto Power is indeed powerful. In fact, Dinstel et al. (2013) found the antioxidant levels of Alaska’s wild berries to be extremely high, ranging from 3 to 5 times higher in ORAC values than cultivated berries from 48 other states. For example, cultivated blueberries have an ORAC scale of 30. Alaska wild dwarf blueberries measure 85. When the berries were dehydrated, per gram the ORAC values increased.*

Autism and Clostridia

February 24, 2018

Dear Friends

Research ascribes various etiologies to Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).  There are exogenous factors such as iatrogenic drugs, pollutants of various kinds, and over use of antibiotics; and there are the endogenous factors such as dysbiosis of the GI Tract, mitochondrial dysfunction, and of course genetics. Interestingly, genetic causation is found to be in the low percentile, whereas dybiosis and mitochondrial dysfunction conditions present major links to ASD.

Let’s focus on dysbiosis.  Overgrowth of clostridia, bacteriodes, and desulfovibrio are all ASD-associated bacterial populations. The overuse of antibiotics enables the clostridial family of bacteria to dominate because their spore forming ability resist many antibiotics and they can easily gain a foothold over good bacteria.

Clostridia is a big producer of the SCFA propionate. Too much propionate in the systemic circulation (which is able to cross the blood-brain barrier) becomes neurological and mitochondrial toxins, disrupting and causing the very symptoms that we see with autistic patients.

There is strong support in the literature for foundational probiotic organisms that reduce the overload of clostridium. These are the organisms we have chosen for our probiotics.

Research is showing that L. plantarum, L. casei rhamnosus, B. longum and even L. acidophilus can put out bacterocins against clostridia.  Doctors who have used our Original Synbiotic and our Supernatant Synbiotic (either one works) found improvement in the behaviors of ASD patients.

I would recommend adding Phyto Power for the high potency of polyphenolics grown in remote Alaskan regions. Phenols are shown in research as antimicrobials, inhibiting many pathogenic organisms including those implicated in ASD, yet at the same time, they enhance both the growth of the Bifido and Lactobacillus genera.

I suggest the following dosage:

Original Synbiotic: up to 1 tsp. daily. With very young patients start with an eight of a tsp and work up slowly adjusting the dosage. Back off just a little from a dosage that causes reaction. You be able to get up to a tsp dose in about a month of gradually ratcheting it up.

As a reminder this product contains L. plantarum, L. casei rhamnosus, L. acidophilus, B. longum and S. thermophiles plus organic chicory root inulin which is very bifido and lacto genic.  Each of the organism are good butyrate produces, and as we know, butyrate helps to heal a leaky gut which is a big problem for ASD patients.

Phyto Power– 1 capsule daily (if they can’t take capsules then just open up the capsule and take the powder directly).
