Therapeutic Food Supplements

Dear Friends
High ORAC Photo
High ORAC Synbiotic is back in and what a powerful formula it is.

With a potent mix of polyphenols and two pedigreed strains of colonizing Bifido and Lacto species.

  • The CFU per capsule of L. acidophilus and B. longum (50:50 mix) is over 25 billion.
  • 3000 ORAC value per capsule with grape seed extract, wild blueberry, quercetin, resveratrol, wild bilberry, cranberry, tart cherry, prune, raspberry and strawberry.
  • The organic chicory root inulin is 100mg.

We understand how upsetting back orders can be. One of our absolute commitments to you is creating the highest and most potent therapeutic foods, probiotics, and nutraceuticals. But to do so, at times, we have to reject batches of the raw materials. Plants and foods are unpredictable, with different moisture levels, potency, and consistency. The typical practice is to simply keep these batches and get a reduction in price to help profit margins. But this practice is not part of our sourcing, formulating, and manufacturing.

The BioImmersion’s products are truly special, and one of a kind in the supplement industry for multiple reasons. We make small batches of each product often to ensure therapeutic potency.  Our sourcing of raw materials is strict and thorough; plants are grown to produce very high actives.  We encapsulate without excipients, which means there are no flowing agents, fillers, or additives. We are currently the only company that fills every plant-based (vegan) capsule with only high active, powerful ingredients.  Our collaborating partners are holistic minded scientists, doctors,  farmers, and manufacturing experts — a network of thoughtful professionals who care greatly about your health.

It is very difficult, expensive, and time consuming to produce such fresh, pure, and powerful products in small batches. Please know that we have you in mind when we produce each and every batch of our products. Call us for suggestions on what to use as different foods and probiotics are multi-dimensional and can easily preform the same tasks.

To your health!

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.

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?
WL Photo 2
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.

Dear Friends

No. 7 brings together the power of the polyphenols with pedigreeds strains of probiotics.
No. 7 Systemic Booster 13
A reduced life span is an outcome associated with many prevalent diseases, including diabetes, obesity, and high blood pressure. In seeking to prevent these diseases, many researchers have looked into potential therapeutic benefits of naturally occurring compounds.

AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is a major metabolic-sensing protein implicated in the prevention of metabolic disorders, or in minimizing the effects thereof, via the regulation of both upstream and downstream target molecules.

In the field of food and nutrition, the current focus lies in the finding of components that activate AMPK. AMPK is a serine/threonine protein kinase and is activated by several natural compounds, including resveratrol, epigallocatechin gallate, berberine, and quercetin. AMPK activation can induce ATP (adenosine triphosphate) generation through pathways such as glycolysis and β-oxidation. By contrast, ATP-consuming pathways, including fatty acid and cholesterol syntheses, and gluconeogenesis, are suppressed by AMPK activation.

The No. 7 Systemic Booster suggestion daily dose:  1 tsp.

Food Science

We used to think of the colon as a storage place for fecal matter, on its way out, whose function was to reabsorb water and minerals.  Now, thru the worldwide research on the human microbiome, we understand that the colon is home to another digestive organ in our body- the GI Microbiome, whose metabolic capacity is 100 fold that of our liver.

A healthy gut microbiome residing in the colon is “the organ” in our body that consumes the fibers (inulins, pectins, beta glucans, resistant starches) and polyphenols in our diet as food, breaking down the longer phenolic chains into shorter ones that are more bioavailable, enabling these phytochemicals to enter into our body and hometically supply their multitude of benefits towards the health of all bodily systems.

Therefore, seeding the digestive system with proven probiotic organisms and bringing in a healthy mix of plants, berries and fruits into your diet is an absolute must for health now and for health long in one’s old age.
