Beta Glucan Synbiotic

A Deep Nutritional Booster

December 20, 2019

Dear Friends

We all have those days when we realize we have not eaten many veggies, greens, fruits, or wholesome seeds and grains. And let us be clear: That little lettuce salad with the yummy dressing is not what we call deep nutrition.

Our solution is the very famous drink that has helped many people get a needed nutritional boost. Have it as part of your breakfast or afternoon pick me up, it is even a fantastic meal replacement.

The deep nutritional base of the drink: 1 tablespoon of Beta Glucan, 1 tablespoon of Be Regular, and 1 teaspoon of No 7 Systemic Booster. Put in a blender.

This combination has it all: greens, veggies, fruits, berries, seeds, grains, essential nutraceuticals (B12, Folate, Fructo Borate, Vitamin D, and Chromium), 10 probiotics (with Supernatant and ORNs for more immune boosting qualities), and plenty of fiber. The list of ingredients is impressive!

Liquids: 1. Juice – apple, pineapple, prune, watermelon juice, sweet green juices with apple, carrots, and beets, or any berry juice: 1/3 cup of juice & 2/3 cup water (if you need more liquids add a little of both). 2. Coconut water: dilute half/half with water. 3. Nut milks, oat milk, soy, or hemp, (half/half) or use the whole plant-milk. 4. Just water.

Optional: Choose a couple of things to add to your drink. Balance the liquids with items that make the drink thick!

Fruits: 1/2- to Banana, ½ -to 1 cup of frozen or fresh berries, and any fruit you would like (fresh or frozen, e.g., pineapple, melons, mango, peaches, nectarines).  You can add one date (take the pit out) for extra minerals and iron

Greens: a few leaves of spinach

1 tablespoon of Flax Seeds.

1 heaping teaspoon of Bee Pollen – if you are not allergic to bees or honey. Keep in the freezer for freshness. Bee pollen contains a host of nutrients such as antioxidant, protein, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and coenzymes, and more.

Nut butter: A teaspoon of almond butter, peanut butter, cashew butter – add more protein and fiber to the drink.

Play with different combinations to find just the right mixture of things and enjoy this deeply nourishing boost to your health.

The Relevant Gift

December 18, 2019

Dear Friends

Giving a relevant gift touches the heart deeply and connects us to each other. A gift that says I understand what is going on with you, and what is important to you is very special.

Finding a relevant gift is not easy.  Especially when a person needs to improve their diet or lifestyle habits. In fact, any topic that deals with the health of our body, mind, and soul is a private matter, and we do not want to intrude or push our own values (and products) on our family and friends.

But health is relevant. Joy is hard to come by when we suffer with ill-health. We suggest making health a fun and bonding experience by giving family and friends fabulous supplements they will love.

Start with the easiest and most fundamental gift: The No 7 Systemic Booster: The New Longevity. The name says it all – a gift that strengthens many systems in our body and has the correct nutritional strategy to bolster longevity. And the new batch tastes so so good! It is sweet and melts in your mouth. A teaspoon in a little water will make everyone smile!

Dear Friends

Did you know that oat beta glucan has enjoyed a long history as a special fiber for heart health?

The Beta Glucan Synbiotic is qualified for the American Heart Association “Healthy Heart” seal of approval.

From Sharper & Jones in 1959, to the Cornell China study in 1998, Andersson & Hellstrand in 2012, and the NIH report in 2015: oat beta glucan is found to lower LDL cholesterol and support a healthy heart function.

According to Andersson & Hellstrand (2012), oat β-glucan is not only known for its ability to lower LDL, but also for the general cardiovascular health-promoting properties – the micronutrients of oats, phytonutrients, that contribute to the protection of our hearts.

To strengthen the heart health properties, the Beta Glucan Synbiotic also contains red beetroot, shown in research as a rich source of dietary nitrate for heart and vascular health.

The gastrointestinal is central to a healthy functioning heart (Kassaian et al., 2017; Sáez-Lara et al., 2016), with many researchers positing the connection between heart and gut health (Serino et al., 2014; Huang et al., 2013).

The Beta Glucan is a comprehensive, multifunctional product – formulated to nourish the heart, open up circulation, and create a balanced microbiota in the gut.*

Dear Doctor

Let’s face it, we are not eating enough fiber. Recent published reviews continue to highlight the connection between eating enough fiber, especially from plants, to lower cholesterol and improve heart health.

Statins are prescribed to lower cholesterol, however, there are side-effects that are not tolerable.

Two review from the USA and the UK summarize our need to increase fiber, especially the kind that lowers cholesterol, like beta glucan.

In the USA, Dr. Ghada Soliman, an associate professor of Nutrition in the Department of Environmental, Occupational and Geospatial Health Sciences, concludes her review of the literature that higher intake of fiber can in fact lower the need for statins. Some people may need statins but in much lower dosage.

Here are other fiber functions in the article by Ghada A. Soliman:

Dietary fiber has several protective effects against chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, inflammatory bowel syndrome, diverticular disease, obesity, and colorectal cancer in the age-adjusted analysis [77,78,79,80,81,82,83,84]. For example, insoluble fiber binds to and adsorbs carcinogens, mutagens, and toxins, and therefore, prevents their harmful effects to the body, by preventing the toxins absorption and targeting them for elimination [83,85,86]. Other fiber properties include delayed colonic transit time, prolonged post-meal satiety and satiation, and induction of cholecystokinin satiety hormone [87,88]. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics position on fiber intake is to increase consumption of whole grains, fruits and vegetables, nuts and legumes, and that dietary fiber is associated with risk reduction of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and select cancer types [89].

In the UK, Dr Charlotte Elizabeth Evans, an associate professor in nutritional epidemiology and public health nutrition, speaks highly of high fiber intake and the positive association between fiber and health benefits such as cardio-vascular health (2019).

Dietary fibre and cardiovascular health: a review of current evidence and policy

Charlotte Elizabeth Louise Evans:

Dietary fibre comprises many different, mainly plant-based, compounds that are not fully digested in the human gut. Insoluble fibres include cellulose, hemi-celluloses and lignin and soluble fibres include pectins, β-glucan and hydro-colloids. In the UK, the daily recommended amount has increased to 30 g but only 13 % of men and 4 % of women meet this recommendation. Currently the mean intake for adults is 21 g for men and 17 g for women. There is a wealth of epidemiological evidence based on systematic reviews of trials and cohorts to support the higher fibre recommendation. This includes evidence of reductions in the risk for CVD (both heart disease and stroke) and lower risk of type 2 diabetes, lower blood pressure, lower LDL-cholesterol, as well as some cancers. Beneficial effects of fibre operate via a diverse range of mechanisms throughout the digestive system including the mouth, stomach and small and large intestine; some of which are still not completely understood. The updated recommendation for fibre is a long way from a typical British diet and requires several daily portions of fruit and vegetables and wholegrain foods. Improving dietary fibre intakes will require a variety of actions and policies from stakeholders; however, there is currently more of a focus on reducing sugar than increasing fibre. In order to increase the number of adults meeting the fibre recommendation, social marketing and labeling of high-fibre foods are warranted as well as reformulation and wider availability of wholegrain versions of popular foods.

Transformation to healthy diets by 2050 will require substantial dietary shifts.  Global consumption of fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes will have to double, and consumption of foods such as red meat and sugar will have to be reduced by more than 50%. A diet rich in plant-based foods and with fewer animal source foods confers both improved health and environmental benefits.  (Walter Willett MD, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, 2019)

Dear Doctor

According to Lambeau & McRorie (2017), only 5% of adults consume the recommended amount of fiber! And even worse, many fiber supplements do not actually provide the health benefit that is associated with dietary fiber.

Dietary fiber is shown in research to help with many functions in our body, such as bowel regularity, improving short-term glycemic control, and reducing cardiovascular disease including lowering LDL cholesterol. Beta-glucan has a special gel-forming fiber that significantly increase the viscosity of chyme in the small intestine, slowing down the absorption of glucose.  Chyme is a thin liquid composed of nutrients and digestive enzymes which is absorbed readily in the intestines. Other fibers that are non-viscous soluble fiber like inulin, wheat dextrin, guar gum along with insoluble fiber like wheat bran do not have this gel-forming ability.

But what about long term glycemic control in metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes? Short term (postprandial) glycemic control is very important for acute glycemic effects of fiber, but what about a more long-term effect of fiber? Multiple studies have shown that gel-forming fibers like psyllium or B-glucan show a reduction in fasting serum glucose, insulin, and Ab A1 C in patients with metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes (Lambeau & McRorie, 2017).

The increase in chyme viscosity by gel-forming dietary fiber also lowers elevated serum cholesterol by trapping and eliminating bile (McRorie & Fahey, 2015). Read Lambeau & McRorie (2017) for a detailed technical Review

How much fiber do you need? Institute of medicine recommends 25 grams for women, and 38 grams for men per day.

Order Now:  Beta Glucan Synbiotic has the American Heart Association Seal of Approval for healthy heart dietary fiber. 2 tablespoon a day is the suggested use.
