Chlorella for Fat Burning?

November 25, 2017

Dear Friends

Chlorella HZ 2
Chlorella is not often thought of as part of a weight loss protocol but with its powerful green nutrients, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and more, cholorella in fact can help with metabolic diseases such as obesity and diabetes.

Chlorella for fat burning?  Mizoguchi et al. (2008) concluded in their study, Nutrigenomic studies of effects of chlorella on subjects with high-risk factors for lifestyle-related disease, that chlorella intake resulted in noticeable reductions in body fat percentage, serum total cholesterol, and fasting blood glucose levels.

The researchers conducted Chlorella ingestion tests on 17 subjects with high risk factors for lifestyle-related diseases and 17 healthy subjects over a 16-week period including a 4-week post-observation period.

They utilized standard blood biochemical tests and also nutrigenomic analyses: analyzing gene expression profiles in whole blood cells in the peripheral blood before and after Chlorella intake.

Chlorella influences a myriad of metabolic pathways.  These included genes involved in fat metabolism and insulin signaling pathways.  There were clear variations in the expression profiles of genes directly related to uptake of glucose resulting from Chlorella intake, indicating that the activation of insulin signaling pathways could be the reason for the hypoglycemic effects of Chlorella.

The results of Mizoguchi et al. research as well as other studies (see below) showed that Chlorella intake brings about improvements in both fat and glucose metabolism.

Globe_Home 3Choosing a healthy diet: Research studies link the emerging global pattern of metabolic syndrome and weight gain to the prevalence of Westernized diet of daily meats, dairy, eggs, simple and processed carbohydrates, and too much sugar (Chai et al., 2017; Azadbakht & Esmaillzadeh, 2009; Lutsey et al., 2008). Although there are conflicting views on dietary guidelines, many scientists and health organizations agree that a focus on whole food plant-based diet is the healthiest guideline for metabolic syndrome and weight loss (Yokoyama et al., 2017; Satija et al., 2017; Kahleova et al., 2017; Hever et al., 2017; Turner et al., 2017; UN Report, 2016; Wang et al., 2015; Tilman & Clark, 2014; WHO/FAO, 2003).*

The Plates, Pyramids, Planet report, compiled in collaboration with the Food Climate Research Network (FCRN) at the University of Oxford, concludes that a plant-based diet has many advantages for health and the environment (UN Report, 2016).*

The type and nature of carbohydrates that improve our metabolic health (obesity, cardiovascular, and diabetes) are comprised of whole plants with fiber (Wright et al., 2017). Whereas low carbs diets with high fat content is shown to increase metabolic syndrome (Lamont et al., 2017; UN Report, 2016).*

A diet that is 80-90% whole food plant-based is highly recommeded by many health organizations and medical universities around the world.

Care For Your Heart

November 14, 2017

Dear Friends                                                                                                                                                      

Metabolic Syndrome is considered the leading cause of Heart Disease, the number one killer in the United States.

Three of our Therapeutic Food Supplements are designed with intelligent ingredients that are shown in research to support and help reverse both heart disease and the different conditions associated with metabolic syndrome: Beta Glucan High Potency Synbiotic, Weight-less Systemic Booster, and Organic Chlorella.

  • Beta Glucan High Potency Synbiotic– 1 heaping tbl twice daily before two largest meals.
  • Weight-less:  NO. 4 Systemic Booster– 2 capsules one-half hour before meals. A must do before a high carb meal or snack.
  • Organic Chlorella– 4 tablets taken with meals.

Food Science

Metabolic Syndrome is a disorder affecting approximately one-quarter of the American population. It is in fact considered a worldwide epidemic (NIH: NHLBI, 2015).

The risk factors for Metabolic Syndrome are:  Abdominal obesity, Atherogenic dyslipidemia,
Raised blood pressure, Insulin resistance, Pro-inflammatory state, and Pro-thrombotic state (McCullough 2011, Grundy 2004).
Beta Glucan HZ 3
The Beta Glucan High Potency Synbiotic contains powerful soluble and insoluble fibers and pedigreed strains of probiotics.

Multitude research articles strongly indicate that as dietary fiber goes up the risk of Metabolic Syndrome goes down (Grooms, 2013).

A healthy gut microbiome supports the maintenance of a healthy GI tract membrane barrier function.  Cani et al. (2008) found that bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) levels set the tone of insulin sensitivity and the onset of obesity and diabetes.  An increased gut permeability allowed for the passage of LPS through the gut wall into the systemic circulation.  Thus, lowering plasma LPS concentration could be a potent strategy for the control of metabolic diseases.

Cani et al. (2007, 2007a, 2008, 2009) demonstrated that adding soluble fibers to our daily diet, such as inulin and oat bran beta glucan (containing oligofructose chains found in the Beta Glucan Synbiotic), stimulates the growth of Bifidobacteria sp., which caused a reduction in gut permeability, thereby reducing the levels of LPS systemically, which initiates weight loss, and reduction of metabolic disorders.
WL Low Cropped Jpeg 2
Weight-less is a smart metabolic booster formula – the mix supports weight loss and effectively boosting energy levels.  Weight-less contains wild brown seaweed extracts from kelp and bladderwrack as well as 7-Keto DHEA.  Brown seaweeds are shown in research to lower the glycemic load of complex and simple carbohydrates for better insulin management, as well as offer a power-filled phenolic activity for antioxidant and anti-inflammation effect (Roy et al., 2011). The 7-Keto has been used for many years to turn on fat burning mechanism and offer an effective and safe way to lose weight (Bobyleva et al., 1997).

Together, Weight-less promotes a sustained energy level throughout the day as it modulates carbohydrate digestion and absorption for better weight management and metabolic health (Gabbia et al., 2017; Catarino et al., 2017).
Chlorella HZ
Organic Chlorella– New studies show that Chlorella supports reduction of body fat, improves fat and glucose metabolism, decrease weight, and reduce the risk factors involved with Metabolic Disease.

Mizoguchi et al. (2008) in their research, Nutrigenomic studies of effects of Chlorella on subjects with high-risk factors for lifestyle-related disease, demonstrated that Chlorella intake, in 17 subjects with high risk factors for lifestyle-related disease (obesity, diabetes or hyperlipidemia) and 17 healthy subjects, results in noticeable reductions in body fat percentage, total blood serum cholesterol, and fasting blood glucose levels.

Their research confirmed that Chlorella intake brings about improvements in both fat metabolism and glucose metabolism.  The expression of genes involved in the insulin signaling pathway were also affected by Chlorella vulgaris intake, especially those related to glucose uptake in tissue, providing support for the observation that Chlorella lowers blood glucose levels.

Vecina et al.’s (2014), Chlorella modulates insulin signaling pathway and prevents high-fat-diet- induces insulin resistance in mice, research goal was to evaluate the prophylactic effect Chlorella vulgaris on body weight, lipid profile, blood glucose and insulin signaling in liver, skeletal muscle and adipose tissue of diet-induced obese mice.

Their conclusion was that C. vulgaris supplementation (Chlorella) could be considered as an adjunctive therapy to decrease weight and improve glycemic status and reducing hs-CRP as well as improving liver function in patients with NAFLD.

Cold and Flu Treatment

October 3, 2016

Dear Friends

We are in the cold and flu season.  Science finds specific foods that are amazing in the treatment of sore throats, colds, fever, congestion, and achy body.

The protocol we use is very effective: 

  • No. 7 Systemic Booster– 1 tsp. daily in a glass of water.
  • Organic Garlic– 1-2 capsule daily X 2. For sore throat, open capsules and mix with No. 7 in water, drink slowly.
  • Organic Chlorella– 4-8 tablets daily.
  • LactORN- 1 level tsp. twice a week. Take extra tsp during a cold/flu infection. Chew the powder to stimulate the oral immune system (it is on the sticky side).

We use this protocol successfully with stomach flu as well.

Food Science

Colds and Flus begin with the mucous membranes of our body— the oral cavity, the gastrointestinal, genitourinary, and respiratory tracts, and the mammary gland.  They represent the largest surface area of our body exposed to the pathogenic bacteria, viruses and protozoa of the outside world.

Our GI tract alone embodies a surface area the size of a full tennis court with most of it only one-cell layer thick.  70% of our immune system resides on the inside surface of the gut membrane.  Because we bring in 20 tons of food in a life-time it is our most vulnerable Port of Entry for infections.

No. 7 Systemic Booster (click on this link to see the ingredients in the No. 7)

Lactic acid bacteria and Bifidobacteria such as are found in No. 7 have shown to be able to reduce the number of participants who experience upper respiratory tract infections in the best study to date by Hao et al. (2011)— Probiotic for preventing acute upper respiratory tract infections.

The two studies by Gill et al. (2001) and Sheih et al. (2001) describe subjects who were given a probiotic regime between weeks three to six (of the cold) and saw a significant boost in the ability of their white bloods cells to gobble up invaders.  The same boost was found in the ability of their natural killer cells to kill cancer cells.

Organic Garlic

Garlic offers a broad spectrum antimicrobial against bacteria, viruses and protozoaAt the same time it is not hard on the lactic acid probiotic organisms.  Take a large glass of water, open up a capsule of the garlic in the water.  You will smell the antimicrobial agent allicin being forming.  Each capsule contains 4 to 5 cloves of organic garlic.  Now add one tsp. of the No. 7 to the drink (Ankri, 1999; Bakri, 2005).

Organic Chlorella

Boosting the immune system without exacerbating allergies and autoimmune disease is one of the important benefits of Chlorella.  A big part of the front line of defense within the mucous membranes is the IgA- the secretary immunoglobulin A (SIgA).

The research of Yamauchi et al (2011) and Otsuki et al. (2012) not only demonstrated an increase in human participants levels of SIgA, but also an increase in their levels of NK cells (Natural Killer cells) and the corresponding reduction in upper respiratory infections (URI).

LactORN

LactORN contains the probiotic Lactobacillus casei grown in a way to retain its natural ORNS (oligoribonucleotides).  Plus it contains the prebiotic inulin derived from organic chicory root.  There are no other ingredients.  Its dairy free, soy free, gluten free (as is No. 7).

Think of this product as your immune system boosting tool.  Across animal species the LactORN has been shown through research to support immune system competencies to prevent infections cause by viruses and bacteria ( Marshall, 2007).
