No. 4 Systemic Booster

Dear Friends

The complex beauty of globalization is that we are all connected! Yet China’s pollution is our pollution; Africa’s pathogens are our pathogens, and our fast food epidemic has become the world’s fast food pandemic problem.

Green Facts below will take you to an important up and coming documentary—Fed Up—that totally hits the nail on the head.

No. 4 Systemic Booster: Metabolic Balance— The research on this product is down right exciting for blood sugar regulation and weight loss.  It also increases energy, cognition, and immune function (see more).  Take one cap. twice daily 1/2 hour before your two largest meals.

Here are some quotes that illustrate the dangers of sugar:

The message has been pushed on us, it’s your fault that you are fat. (Mark Hyman MD- Chairman of the Institute for Functional Medicine)

There are 600,000 food items in America and 80% of them have added sugar … Your brain lights up with sugar just like cocaine or heroin. You are going to become an addict. (Robert Lustig MD- Professor of Pediatrics, University of California, San Francisco)

You end up with one of the great public health epidemics of our time … We are toast. (David Kessler MD- Former FDA Commissioner)

Junk food companies are acting very much like tobacco companies acted in the early 60s. (Mark Bittman- Opinion Columnist for the New York Times)

There are four more important Therapeutic Foods we use synergetically with the No. 4 Metabolic Balance: Our Beta Glucan, Energy Sustain, Chromium and the Ultra Minerals.

Sincerely yours,

Seann Bardell

Clinical Notes:

No. 4 Systemic Booster: Metabolic Balance—is made up of two basic components: 7-Keto- DHEA which is a downstream metabolite of DHEA, and seaweed extract from two different species of wild brown seaweeds- kelp (Ascophyllum nodosum ) and bladderwrack (Fucus vesiculosus). Regarding weight loss, 7-Keto promotes thermogenesis, the process of burning stored body fat for energy. The two wild seaweed extracts slow down the absorption of carbohydrates, while providing powerful antioxidant strength systemically. The No. 4 Systemic Booster: Metabolic Balance offers a powerful new tool in the arsenal to battle weight gain, and can be the perfect addition to weight management programs.

On Wednesday and Friday of this week I’ll present two different Therapeutic Food’s sugar-managing formulas. Stay tuned for their Forward Thinking presentation.

The World Wildlife Fund, one of my favorite groups, lauched an international effort rescuing the black rhinos form the brink of extinction.  Conservation efforts have helped the total number of black rhinos grow from 2,410 in 1995 to 4,880 in 2010.  Today there is over 5,000.

Dear Friends

Several of the Therapeutic Food products help to prevent high blood sugar levels and the resultant development of insulin resistance?  See the Clinical Notes below.

A global estimate for diabetes in 1997 was 124 million people world wide.  By the year 2010 the total number of people with diabetes was projected to reach 221 million. (Amos AF et al. The rising global burden of diabetes and its complications 1997 Diabetic Medicine).

It’s 2014 and the total is 284 million with diabetes worldwide!

More that 20 million people worldwide suffer from dementia, and this number is expected to exceed 80 million by 2040 because of the rapid increase in the numbers of elderly (ferri et al. 2005).

Several recent studies have indicated effects of insulin and glucose metabolism on the risk of developing dementia, especially Alzheimer’s Disease (AD).  In fact, people that have insulin resistance, in particular those with type 2 diabetes have an increased risk of suffering from Alzheimer’s disease estimated to be between 50% and 65% higher.

Researchers have discovered that many type 2 diabetics have deposits of a protein called amyloid beta in their pancreas which is similiar to the protein deposits found in the brain tissue of Alzheimer’s sufferers.  Hence, Alzheimer’s is being proposed as type 3 diabetes.

Bottomline, we need to control the rate of sugar infusion from our diet into our bloodstream.

Sincerely yours,

Seann Bardell

Clinical Notes:

Therapeutic Foods that help maintain healthy blood sugar levels:

  • Beta Glucan Synbiotic Formula– take one tablespoon before your largest carbohydrate meal of the day.  The beta glucan soluble fibers are highly viscous and slow down the absorption of the carbohydrates.
  • Number 4 Systemic Booster– take 1 capsule 1/2 hour before your two largest meals of the day.  The flavonoid extracts from the two seaweeds extend the absorption time of carbohydrate from a meal into the blood stream by an hour.
  • Chromium with Beet– take one capsule twice a day to lower blood sugar levels.

The Last Quiz Answer:

 

This beautiful butterfly comes from Mount Mabu and ‘the Google forest’— the largest rainforest in southern Africa.  The rainforest of Mount Mabu overs approximately 7,880 hectares in total, and has revealed a number of species that were previously unknown to science.  This all was discovered in January of 2006.  So far, only around a fifth of the forest has been surveyed for its biodiversity, and scientists believe there are many more discoveries to be made.  Four new species of butterfly have so far been discovered at Mount Mabu.  Like most of the world’s rainforests there is increasing pressure around its perimeter with slashing and burning agriculture and indiscriminant killing of its fauna. Fortunately, Fauna and Flora International (FFI) has been working to establish a management strategy for Mabu to establish a protected area recognised by Mozambique’s provincial and national government.

Take a second look at the  No. 4 Systemic Booster.  The research on this product is down right exciting for blood sugar regulation and weight loss. It also increases energy, cognition, and immune function.

Beginning with the research of Roy MC et al in 2011, The Effect of a commercially-available algal phlorotannins extract on digestive enzymes and carbohydrate absorption in vivo, published in Food Research International, which demonstrated that a new food ingredient extracted from Ascophyllum nodosum (bladderwrack) and fucus vesiculosus (kelp) phlorotannins was able to reduce the normal increase in postprandial blood glucose seen 30 minutes after a meal by 90% and consequently reduce peak insulin secretion by 40%.

These results demonstrated the potency of this specific collection of two wildcrafted brown seaweed organic extracts to benefincially modulate carbohydrate digestion and assimilation in a way that would be suitable for use in foods and dietary supplements.

To this we added the powerful thermogenic agent 7 keto in amounts per capsule that turn on the body’s fat burning pathways in the mitochodria.  The result is fat weight loss and improved energy. Of course the 7 keto is also known for its ability to improve our cognitive ability and strengthen the immune system. Together with the two types of seaweed in the No 4, it is indeed an intelligent and systemic product.

Sincerely yours,

Seann Bardell

Clinical Notes:  Take one capsule BID 1/2 hour before your two largest carb meals.

Who doesn’t love a warthog!  Lions sure do—one of their preferred dishes.  But they aren’t an easy kill and many a lion has lost that battle.  A big male can weigh up to 250 pounds.  Three feet at the shoulder.  And, live for 15 years.  Scientists who know them say that they are remarkable for their strength, intelligence and flexibility.  They are not endangered because they are so skilled at adapting to new threats.  For example, most warthogs like to forage during the light of the morning and early evening.  But if they live in an area where they are hunted by people, they switch to foraging at night.

Dear Friends

The No. 4 Systemic Booster provides an effective and powerful tool for your weight loss program.

Most diets employ caloric reduction, along with mild exercise.  Taking one capsule of No. 4 before your two largest meals alleviates food craving, ups ones metabolic rate, and stimulates the body to burn fat for energy. Doctors are reporting that their weight loss patients are feeling energetic while they loose body fat weight.

Eliminates glucose and insulin spikes:  Paradis M-E et al in their research A randomised crossover placebo-controlledd trial investigating the effect of brown seaweed (Ascophyllum nodosum and Fucus vesiculosus) on postchallenge plasma glucose and insulin levels in men and womenApplied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism, 2011,36(6):913-919, examined the impact of brown seaweed on post-load plasma glucose and insulin concentrations in men and women.  Compared with placebo, consumption of seaweed was associated with a 12.1% reduction in the insulin incremental area under the curve and a 7.9% increase in the Cederholm index of insulin sensitivity.

Ups the metabolic rate:  Zenk j. et al in their research article, HUM5007, a novel combination of thermogenic compounds, and 3-acetyl-7-oxo-dehydroepiandrosterone: each increases the resting metabolic rate of overweight adults. Journal of Nut. Bio. 2007,18(9):629-634, showed that 7 KETO DHEA by itself increased the resting metabolic rate (RMR) of 40 diet restricted overweight adults.  During the placebo treatment, RMR decreased by 3.9%. However, the RMR increased significantly by 1.4% during the 7-Keto treatment.  Therefore, the addition of 7-Keto to a restricted calorie diet produced a statistically significant 5.4% increase in daily RMR when compared to only a calorie restricted diet.

7 KETO in the No. 4 Systemic Booster enables three times more weight loss than diet and exercise alone:  Clinically proven weight loss through activation of 3 thermogenic enzymes and turning on fat burning pathways.  The majority of weight loss is fat loss. Promotes weight loss without the use of stimulants.

Sincerely yours,

Seann Bardell

Clinical Notes:

The No. 4 Systemic Booster contains the ingredients and amounts that duplicates the successful trials.  The dosage found most successful is one capsule twice daily before your two largest carbohydrate containing meals.  Expect results.  We are getting tremendous feedback from those of you who’ve discovered this product.

No. 4 is back and better!

November 6, 2013

Dear Friends

Can you idenitify this beautiful creature?

Can you identify this beautiful creature?

Number 4 Systemic Booster is back!  And, it is even better!!

Let’s briefly review its features and benefits and why it’s better.

Ingredient wise it is the same product, containing two components—7 Keto DHEA and wildcrafted, certified organic brown seaweed extract from Kelp and Bladderwrack.

7-Keto DHEA:  features and benefits

  • 7-Keto is an endline metabolite of DHEA.  It is a chemical impossibility for it to convert back up to DHEA, which means that it cannot convert to other steroids like testosterone or estrogen.
  • 7-Keto works naturally with the body to enhance the activity of three key fat burning (thermogenic) enzymes.  The up-regulation of these key enzymes provides a higher metabolic rate during periods of caloric restriction and diet modification.
  • Multiple peer-reviewed, placebo-controlled clinical trials have demonstrate that taking 100 mg twice daily when combined with a program of diet and exercise will result in a three-fold increase in weight loss and fat loss compared to placebo.
  • Other evidence points to the positive effects that 7-Keto may have on immune (enhances interleukin-2 production by human mononuclear leukocytes) and brain function (more effective that DHEA in improving memory).
  • Our 7-Keto is made from plant sources.  It is manufactured to a very high level of purity to look exactly like the 7-Keto our bodies produce.  Therefore it’s a vegetarian product.

Kelp and Bladderwrack:  features and benefits

  • Both brown seaweeds are USDA Certified Organic and Wildcrafted.
  • The Kelp (ascophyllum nodosum) and Bladderwrack (Fucus vesiculosus) are extracted with pure water to extract the polyphenols and maintain them in a biologically-active form.
  • The mix slows down the rate of absorption of glucose from the diet.  In one of four clinical trial this combination induced a 48% lower post-meal blood sugar response than placebo and reduced the need for insulin by 12%.
  • Kelp and Bladderwrack do not block carbohydrate absorption, the mix just slows it down in a healthy way.
  • By slowing down the amalase and sucrase enzymes you get less spikes in blood sugar and less insulin produced.  It is similiar to eating brown bread verses white bread.  You get the same amount of sugar digested but the brown bread facillitates a much slower absorption.
  • These are very important attributes when it comes to maintaining stamina, healthy blood sugar levels, and achieving the ability to loose weight from fat loss.
  • When taken with meals the No. 4 Systemic Booster helps to lower the glycemic index.

What makes this new and improved No. 4 better?  See Clinical Notes below.

Sincerely yours,

Seann Bardell

 

Clinical Notes:

We decided to increase each components amount in a capsule by 50%.  The 7 Keto has increased from 50mg to 75mg and the brown seaweed from 125mg to 200mg. Although legally we do not need to change the label for a 50% increase (interesting isn’t it?), we will do so on the next run to show the increase.

The new dosage is aligned with the amounts used in the studies for your easement.

Recommended dosage:  For weight loss, one capsule twice daily before your two largest meals.  This will lower the glycemic load of each meal, and predispose the body towards burning stored fat for energy—thus fat weight loss.

For energy and memory boost, stamina and general immune enhancement, take one to two capsules in the morning and afternoon.

The Last Quiz Answer:

The Northern Bald Ibis at one time existed in large numbers in many countries. They even existed in Germany and Switzerland, but almost completely vanished from Europe in the 17th century. In addition to being hunted for food, it is believed that climate change has also led to their disappearance. Few habitats remain, building and farmland development has taken the place of their feeding and nesting areas. There are a small number of habitats in North Africa, but they are on the brink of extinction.
