Healthy Aging Support

Dear Friends

Increasing our consumption of a diverse range of dietary polyphenols is a proven strategy for protection against the pathogenesis of aging and degenerative diseases.

phytopower-04 copy final 5Take a look at this long list of researched findings. As of August 2015 PubMed’s database contains 78,524 studies that research flavonoids alone.

Potentiate your protocols with Phyto Power:

Polyphenols act in our bodies as antioxidant, anti-apoptosis, anti-aging, anticarcinogen, anti-inflammation, anti-atherosclerosis, anti-microbial, cardiovascular protection, neurological protection, improvement of the endothelial function, as well as inhibition of angiogenensis and cell proliferation activity. Additionally, they offer indirect protection by activating endogenous defense systems and by modulating cellular signaling processes such as reducing NF-kB, enhance glutathione biosynthesis, Nrf2 and much more.

We have developed our products based on scientific research and/or the practical experience of many healthcare practitioners.  There is a growing body of literature on food based nutrition and supplements and their application in support of our health.  Please  use our products under the advisement of your doctor.

Clinical Notes

Phyto Power can be utilized in many ways to potentiate your protocols. Use it as a gentle  detox on a daily basis. It is designed to detoxify and boost the most sensitive individuals.

Take two capsules a day.  This gives you the equivalent in flavonoids of eating directly from the wilds of Alaska, a small hand full of four types of blueberries, 6 rosehips (including seeds and husks) and a small cup of dandelion greens (including the flowers and roots).  To read more about Phyto Power click on this link. There you will find our Foward Thinking newsletters on Phyto Power’s wild-crafted blueberry, dandelion and rosehip— highlighting the very special nature of the Alaskan growing environment for enabling exceptionally high levels of phytonutrients within its wild plants.

Dear Friends,

The research demonstrating the importance of diversity of plant polyphenols in our diet and their medical benefits continues to proliferate.  As of August 2015, PubMed database contains 78,524 studies that research flavonoids alone.  Likewise, the mounting research as to the importance of the makeup of our gastrointestinal microbiome and its relationship to the overall health of our body is accumulating exponentially.

What is fascinating is the bi-directional communicative nature of the relationship between the plants we consume and the bugs in our gut.

Cardona et al. 2013. Benefits of polyphenols on gut microbiota and implications in human health. J. Nutr. Biochem;24(8):1415-22, shines important light on this subject.

Cardona maintains that the microbial profile of ones GI tract microbiome determines the bioavailability and bio-efficacy of polyphenols and their metabolites. At the same time the composition of the dietary intake of polyphenols may in turn modulate and cause fluctuations in the proportions of the microfloral populations in our GI tract.

Apart from the inter-individual variation in daily intake of polyphenols, inter-individual differences in the composition of the gut microbiota may lead to differences in bioavailability and bio-efficacy of polyphenols and their metabolites.

Recent studies have suggested that both the phenolic substrates supplied to the gut bacteria through different patterns of dietary intake and the aromatic metabolites produced may in turn modulate and cause fluctuations in the composition of the microflora populations through selective prebiotic effects and antimicrobial activities against gut pathogenic bacteria.

This is a topic we will be focusing on more fully over the next several months.

Sincerely yours,

Seann Bardell
