Cruciferous Sprouts

Dear Doctor

Novel strategies for controlling influenza are needed, especially for susceptible subpopulations such as those with chronic disease, or with chronic exposure to airborne pollutants.

Muller et al (2016) and Noah et al (2014) showed us, in their respective randomized double-blind trials, that eating broccoli sprouts can reduce viral loads for influenza, decrease virus-induced inflammation, and boost your antiviral natural killer cell activity.  The active molecule within broccoli sprouts that accomplishes this is sulforaphane.

Our Glucosinolates & Sulforaphanes is a powerhouse, providing a four-fold increase in the phase 2 enzymes inducing and cancer preventing molecules for which it is named.

GS FMore Powerful:  Notice that the label above guarantees a Glucosinolate level of 15,000 ppm, a Glucoraphanin level of 10,000 ppm and a Sulforaphane potential of 4,000 ppm. However, as you can see in the Certificate of Analysis below, the actual levels of these three most important ingredients are much higher, with the Glucosinolates at 21,359 ppm, the Glucoraphanins at 19,407 ppm, and the Sulforaphane yield at 8,733 ppm.  Our old beloved our Glucosinolates & Sulforaphanes product offered a 1500 ppm sulforaphane potential yield.

Recommended dose:  one to two capsules a day. Preferably on empty stomach AM/PM.

Sulforaphane (SF) is a phytochemical that displays both anticarcinogenic and anticancer activity. SF modulates many cancer‐related events, including susceptibility to carcinogens, cell death, cell cycle, angiogenesis, invasion and metastasis.   Zhang and Tang (2007) review its discovery and development as a cancer chemopreventive agent.

The preponderance of evidence available from in vitro, animal, and human studies supports the association of sulforaphane with phase II enzyme inductions.  Broccoli sprouts are the richest source of glucoraphanin which is the direct precursor to sulforaphane.  Since broccoli sulforaphane is one of the most potent inducers of phase II enzymes, exploration into broccoli’s impact on other areas of human health, such as cardiovasucular health and upper airway immunity, has been suggested (James et al., 2012).

In Qidong, China, a region where exposures to food-and air-borne carcinogens has been considerable, clinical trials indicate that interventions with well characterized preparations of broccoli sprouts may enhance the detoxication of aflatoxins and air-borne toxins, which may in turn attenuate their associated health risks including cancer in exposed individuals (Kensler et al., 2012).

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

Globally about 1 in 6 deaths is due to cancer (World Health Organization, WHO, 2018, Cancer Statistics).  Yet some of the most common vegetables offer us the best protection against cancer.

Boivin et al., (2009) evaluated the inhibitory effects of extracts isolated from 34 vegetables on the proliferation of 8 different tumor cell lines: breast cancer, brain tumors, kidney cancer, lung cancer, childhood brain tumors, pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer and stomach cancer.  As you can see in their bar graphs the winners were the Allium family and the Cruciferous family.  Of those two groups garlic and broccoli were the leaders respectively in inhibiting the proliferation of all tested cancer cell  lines.

Dear Doctor

Livngstone et al. (2019) review the different plant bio-actives and their help in preventing prostate cancer. Here is her abstract and a few suggestions:

Prostate cancer has become the most common form of non-cutaneous (internal) malignancy in men, accounting for 26% of all new male visceral cancer cases in the UK. The aetiology and pathogenesis of prostate cancer are not understood, but given the age-adjusted geographical variations in prostate cancer incidence quoted in epidemiological studies, there is increasing interest in nutrition as a relevant factor. In particular, foods rich in phytochemicals have been proposed to reduce the risk of prostate cancer. Epidemiological studies have reported evidence that plant-based foods including cruciferous vegetables, garlic, tomatoes, pomegranate and green tea are associated with a significant reduction in the progression of prostate cancer. However, while there is well-documented mechanistic evidence at a cellular level of the manner by which individual dietary components may reduce the risk of prostate cancer or its progression, evidence from intervention studies is limited. Moreover, clinical trials investigating the link between the dietary bioactives found in these foods and prostate cancer have reported varied conclusions. Herein, we review the plant bioactives for which there is substantial evidence from epidemiological and human intervention studies. The aim of this review is to provide important insights into how particular plant bioactives (e.g., sulfur-containing compounds, carotenoids and polyphenols) present in commonly consumed food groups may influence the development and progression of prostate cancer.

Dear Friends

Chronic Disease is the new norm.  We see it all around us:  obesity, metabolic syndrome, fatty liver, diabetes, CVD, cancer, COPD, asthma, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, autism, IBD, IBS,  auto immune disease, arthritis, UTI, and many more.

Doctors, you are our heroes on the frontline in the battle for your patients’ health, and for helping them to prevent their occurrence in the first place.

Key finding in research for the root cause of these chronic illnesses: a continual low-grade inflammation (LGI), termed by scientists as “inflammageing” (Franceschi & Campisi, 2014).

Therapeutic Food Supplements were designed with powerful plant polyphenols, pedigreed probiotic strains  (with their metabolites and microRNAs), and key nutraceuticals to supports the reduction of LGI.  The results are easily measured:  lowering inflammatory markers.

Summary of the Therapeutic Food Offering:

Polyphenol products:  Garlic (antimicrobial, blood pressure regulation), Blueberry Extract (brain and nerve regeneration), Glucosinolates & Sulforaphanes (liver support), Chlorella (absorption of heavy metals and toxins), Be Regular (fiber from ancient seeds – a must have), and Phyto Power (DNA integrity).

Probiotic Products: Supernatant Synbiotic, and Original Synbiotic. Both powerfully effective for GI health

Probiotic + Polyphenols: High ORAC Synbiotic (post antibiotic therapy), Beta Glucan Synbiotic (Cardiovascular and GI support), No. 7 Systemic Booster (designed to combat the root cause of chronic illnesses), and Cranberry Pomegranate Synbiotic (UTI, and prostate support).

Nutraceuticals:  Fructo Borate Complex (bone and joints), Chromium (blood sugar control), Energy (plant ultra minerals), No. 7 (B12, Folate, chromium, D3, and Fructo Borate), Weight-Less (7 keto).

Nutraceuticals + Polyphenols:  Energy (increase ATP levels), Weight-less (weight loss and blood sugar control), and Chromium with high active Beet Root (blood sugar control, increase circulation), No 7 Systemic Booster.

All of our plant materials are eco-farmed, or wild-crafted, selected for their exceptional high-actives, many of which we standardize.  There are no excipients in our Therapeutic Food Supplement (e.g. flowing agents, sweeteners, natural flavors, emulsifiers, etc.).  We are purists in this regard, wanting to give you absolutely the strongest possible natural product for you restoring health.

Dear Doctor

Aging is characterized by a condition of rising levels of free radicals that generates increasing cellular senescence.

Only recently has aging itself been viewed as a treatable condition, with an etiology related to excessive ROS levels that lead to cellular senescence, a process by which cells enter a permanent state of cell cycle arrest. Although senescent cells lost their proliferative capacity, they still are able to secrete a range of proinflammatory molecules through the senescence associated secretory phenotype (SASP).

Patients with coronary artery disease show increased expression of the proinflammatory molecules MCP-1, IL-6, IL-1β and tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α), all of which are secreted by senescent cells through the SASP.

In Serino and Salazar’s 2019 review, Protective role of polyphenols against vascular inflammation, aging and cardiovascular disease, they discuss molecular mechanisms by which polyphenols improve anti-oxidant capacity, mitochondrial function and autophagy, while reducing oxidative stress, inflammation and cellular senescence in vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) and endothelial cells (ECs). They also  discuss the therapeutic potential of polyphenols in reducing the effects of the SASP and the  incidence of CVD.

The following Therapeutic Food protocol makes sense in light of Serino and Salazar’s research. (See also Food Science below)

Therapeutic Food Support:

Suggestions:  Add one tsp No. 7 to your smoothy, or to your shot glass of diluted juice add one tsp No. 7 and swig down the Glucosinolate capsule and 2 capsule of Phyto Power.   Try it for a couple of months and see how you feel.

Food Science:

Lai et al. (2015) reported that total fruit intake (g/day) derived from a 217-item Food Frequency Questionnaire was obtained from 30,458 women (aged 35–69 years) at baseline from 1995–1998., the richest sources of phenolic compounds, correlated with improved cardiovascular health with an estimated 6–7% reduction in deaths from CVDs for every 80 g portion. This study concluded that total fruit intake rather than intake of a specific type of fruit is protective against CVD. In terms of specific types of fruits, commonly researched varieties include berries, such as blackberries, raspberries, black raspberries and blueberries, grapes, citrus fruit, pomegranates, strawberries and apples. These fruits are rich in polyphenols like flavanols, flavonols, anthocyanins, procyanidins, sterols, carotenoids, and hydroycinnamic acids.

The Therapeutic Food Supplement protocol above provides a rich diversity of high active fruits and vegetables.
