Osteo-skeletal Support

Dear Friends

Longevity research teaches us that when we turn to a whole food plant-based diet, with less meat, dairy, and eggs (and refined, processed foods), we lower inflammation in every cell of our body. As we have discussed in our recent emails on the longevity field of study, inflammation is the root causative factor for most all of our chronic diseases.

Breakfast is a major meal, and hence our notoriously delicious breakfast drink that indeed lowers inflammation with a host of major nutrients that deeply nourish and energize your body. And the breakfast drink does so much more: it lubricates the bowels with fiber and polyphenols, lower cholesterol to benefits the heart, supports the liver, kidneys, immune system, brain, aids in blood sugar regulation, and fortifies bones and joints. It is an amazingly healthy drink.

Here is BioImmersion’s famous morning drink: a breakfast meal all by itself.

In a blender add: (for one person)

  • Be Regular:  Optimal Bowel Health-  1 heaping tbls.
  • Add Flax seed 1 tbls.

Further notes on Be Regular, Beta Glucan and No. 7 Systemic Booster

Be Regular

Be Regular is a gluten free, global blend of indigenous organic seeds, originating in ancient cultures from all around the world. The five organic seeds provide gentle yet effective fiber for everyday regularity.  One scoop of Be Regular offers over 7 grams of fiber towards your 25 to 35 grams a day.

We have formulated Be Regular with organic seeds from:  Amaranth, Buckwheat, Chia, Millet and Quinoa.  These seeds are ancient! They have been with us for thousands of years and globally used as foundational foods. Rich in both soluble and insoluble fibers, they contain essential nutrients such as amino acids, vitamins, minerals, complex carbohydrates with an overall low glycemic index.  Besides being organic and gluten free these seed are vegan, kosher, non GMO,

Beta Glucan

Beta Glucan is a great product for seeding the gut with good pedigreed bacteria, Supernatant and ORNs (microRNAs), along with 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.

One heaping tablespoon provides 65 billion strong probiotic organisms, and our famous beta glucans with red beet root to lower cholesterol and support liver function, open and relax blood vessels, and energize the body. The beta glucans also are shown to support  prevention of variety of cancers.

Dear Friends

Cellular Senescence means that cells cannot divide due to multiple reasons,  with inflammation posing as one of the greatest. Cellular Senescence hastens the development of chronic diseases like cardiovascular, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, dementias, cancer, immune and kidney dysfunction, IBD, and osteoarthritis among many others.

Current research has shown that certain plant polyphenols (i.e. quercetin and fisetin) are strong senolytic agents (molecules that stop senescence), and have exciting potential  for reducing and preventing senescence, which reduces the risk for developing chronic disease, and even reverses the onset of chronic illnesses and geriatric syndrome.  Research is now focused on the utilization of senolytic molecules in therapies.

The No. 7 Systemic Booster: the New Longevity contains both of these powerful phenolic flavonoids, quercetin and fisetin, within its high-active fruits and vegetables.  Daily dosing at 1 tsp supports the body’s ability to to fight against chronic disease.  (See Further Notes below)

Further notes on cellular senescence: 

Chronic low-grade inflammation (LGI) in the body is an etiological factor in chronic disease and it is also a causative force in cells going into senescence.  Cellular senescence is characterized as a state where cells: (1) lose their ability to divide and renew their healthy functionality; (2) become resistant to apoptosis (cell death); and  (3) increase their production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), and secret into their external environment pro-inflammatory cytokines, bradykines, prostenoids, miRNAs, damage-associated molecular pattern proteins (DAMPs), and other pro-inflammatory mediators, chemokines that attract immune cells.  In other words, these cells create more inflammation; more collateral damage that can lead to pathology.  This condition is called a senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP).

Senescent cells have been identified at sites of pathology in multiple diseases.  They accumulate in adipose tissue in diabetes and with age-related metabolic dysfunction, osteoarthritic joints, the aorta in vascular hypo-reactivity and atherosclerosis and the lung in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.  Transplantation of small numbers senescent cells around the knee joint can cause osteoarthritis (Zhu, Y., et al. 2015).

Therefore, the discovery of strong senolytic molecules  present in certain vegetables and fruits that  are able to delay, prevent, or alleviate a number of chronic  diseases is very exciting. The No. 7 Systemic Booster: the New Longevity is a great starting point to reduce inflammation and deeply nourish our cells with the nutrients they need to function healthily.

Our findings here give support for the speculation that these agents [senolytics] may one day be used for treating cardiovascular disease, frailty, loss of resilience, including delayed recovery or dysfunction after chemotherapy or radiation, neurodegenerative disorders, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, other bone and joint disorders, and adverse phenotypes related to chronologic aging.  Theoretically, other conditions such as diabetes and metabolic disorders, visual impairment, chronic lung disease, liver disease, renal and genitourinary dysfunction, skin disorders, and cancers could be alleviated with senolytics (Zhu,Y. et al., 2017).

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,

Seann

The No 7 Longevity encompasses a great deal of research into better health. The scientific community has much more to discover, yet many of the findings do show a clear path toward health that is not riddled by chronic conditions that can be supported by a plant-based diet of whole foods, a cleaner home and office environments, exercise, toxic free personal and home cleaning products, organic or pesticides & herbicides free foods, and clean, researched based supplementations (see Living Well – Dying Well , Chapter 8).

Dear Friends

The Fructo Borate Complex is back!!!

FB old BtlHere are some of the reasons why Fructo Borate is important:

Fructo Borate Complex is a plant form of the mineral boron that is based on how boron is found in plants— a covalently bound boron to plant carbohydrate.  When boron is not tightly bound, it can become toxic in our gut as it forms boric acid.

In the Fructo Borate, each boron ion is strongly bound to two plant – fructose molecules.  Therefore it passed into the systemic circulation without disassociating with its carbohydrate bond.  Preventing it from turning into boric acid in the gut.

Boron is considered to be a master mineral and is a co-factor in many metabolic functions.  Each capsule provides 6 mg of elemental boron.  In areas of the world where boron dietary intakes usually were 1mg or less/day, the estimated incidence of arthritis ranged from 20% to 70%.  On the other hand, in areas of the world where boron dietary intakes were usually 3mg to 10mg, the estimated incidence of arthritis ranged from 0% to 10% (Newnham, R.E., 1994).

In Nothing boring about boron, Pizzorno (2015) nicely summarizes some of boron’s many benefits: (1) is essential for the growth and maintenance of bone; (2) greatly improves wound healing; (3) beneficially impacts the body’s use of estrogen, testosterone, and vitamin D; (4) boosts magnesium absorption; (5) reduces levels of inflammatory biomarkers, such as high-sensitivity C-reactive protein and TNF alpha; (6) raises levels of antioxidant enzymes, such as SOD, catalase, and glutathione peroxidase; (7) protects against pesticide-induced oxidative stress and heavy-metal toxicity; (8) improves the brains electrical activity, cognitive performance, and short-term memory for elders; (9) influences the formation and activity of key biomolescules, such as SAM-e and NAD+; (10) has demonstrated preventive and therapeutic effects in a number of cancers, such as prostate, cervical, and lung cancers, and multiple and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma; and (11) may help ameliorate the adverse effects of traditional chemotherapeutic agents.

Boron is one of the most important minerals in our diet.  How are your boron levels?

The average American’s boron levels are 1 mg/day; and, many studies have shown that the benefits to be derived from boron intake don’t occur until levels of 3 mg/day and above are achieved (Price et al., 2012).

Dear Friends

Reduce blood sugar levels with polyphenols!

Americans have a serious problem with chronic hyperglycemia.

Untreated hyperglycemia can cause long-term complications. These include:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Nerve damage (neuropathy)
  • Kidney damage (diabetic nephropathy) or kidney failure
  • Damage to the blood vessels of the retina (diabetic retinopathy), potentially leading to blindness
  • Clouding of the normally clear lens of your eye (cataract)
  • Feet problems caused by damaged nerves or poor blood flow that can lead to serious infections, and in some severe cases, amputation
  • Bone and joint problems
  • Skin problems, including bacterial infections, fungal infections and non-healing wounds
  • Teeth and gum infections

What are its causes?  There are multiple, and some may surprise you.

The diet for many Americans contains an overwhelming amount of carbohydrates, with a high proportion coming from added sugars.  To give you an idea, the annual added sugar intake has been reported to range from over 50 lb (median value) in the Dutch population to 142 lb in Americans (Wells & Buzby, 2008).

This means that almost every meal is followed by hyperglycemic conditions.  Recent studies indicate that hyperglycemia induces overproduction of Superoxide Anion (O2-) by the mitochondrial electron transport chain (Node & Inoue, 2009).  O2- is known as a primary free radical, because it converts either spontaneously or through enzymatic assistance into H2O2, peroxynitrite or hydroxyl radical (Gutowski & Kowalczyk, 2014).

Intervention aiming to reduce postprandial hyperglycemia are thus believed to benefit health through prevention of oxidative stress from glucose-overloaded mitochondria.

No. 4 Systemic Booster: Weight-less accomplishes this in two ways: WL Photo 2

  • It contains a powerful mix of wild crafted brown seaweed extracts of Ascophyllum nodosum (kelp) and Fucus vesiculosus (bladderwrack) along with 7-Keto DHEA.
  • These phlorotannin extracts are a class of polyphenols found exclusively in brown seaweed that act on amylase and glucosidase enzymes to optimize post-meal blood glucose and insulin responses.
  • Brown seaweed phlorotannins have a high Total ORAC and the extracts in Weight-less showed the highest antioxidant potency against superoxide anion of all antioxidants tested.
  • Dosage:  take one capsule 20 minutes before your meals.

Since post-meal glycemic fluctuations lead to oxidative stress, these results suggest that Weight-less could have a superior action against free radicals by preventing post-meal hyperglycemia as well as having a direct scavenging action.
