No. 7 Systemic Booster

Healthy Aging?

August 9, 2016

Dear Friends

As it stands, chronic degenerative diseases are prevalent, not only in the Western world, but also in countries that adopt our dietary habits. In fact, children born in the U.S. today may have a reduced long healthy life expectancy than their parents. This is the first generation with a potential decline in life expectancy (Olshansky, 2005).

How do we achieve health as we age?

Most deaths in the United States are preventable, and they are related to what we eat (Lenders, 2013).  Our Diet is the number-one cause of premature death and the number-one cause of disability (Murry, 2013).

Therapeutic Food Support for healthy aging

Phyto Power– 2 capsules daily
No. 7 Systemic Booster– 1 teaspoon daily
Ultra Minerals– 2 caspules daily

Food Science

Phyto Power supplies the phytonutrient power of multi-species of wild-crafted Alaskan blue berries and rosehips, and four species of dandelions picked in the wild.  This product is loaded with bioflavonoids (Dinstel, 2013).  Robust consumption of flavonoids reduces the risks of CVD, arthritis, diabetes and cancer (Hans, 2007).  They are antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. They work epigenetically. They prolong our cognitive functioning, protecting us against dementia and Alzheimers.  They protect against the diseases of aging (Han, 2007). Cultures that consume robust amounts of flavonoids and phytochemicals in their diet are cultures with robust longevity for its citizens as witnessed in the Blue Zones (see Green Facts below).

No. 7 Systemic Booster contains a higher potency proprietary blend of our pedigreed Bulgarian probiotic bacteria, plus an important fusion of organic whole fruits, berry extracts, chicory root soluble fiber with carefully selected complimentary nutriceuticals (including Vitamin D-3). A healthy Gi tract microbiome is essential to reducing chronic inflammation throughout the body including in conditions associated with muscular-skeletal disease and heart disease (Saini, 2010; Vitetta, 2013; DiRenzo, 2014).

Ultra Minerals brings into our body cold-water extracted from a pristine source of Mesozoic Vegetate a full spectrum of important plant-based elements and minerals in varying trace amounts, the majority of which are absent from our foods and mineral supplements currently on the market.  Plant-based minerals which are naturally chelated through plant root uptake and digestion.

Our human cells and the cells within our human microbiome have a long history conditioned early on in Deep Time to use earth’s multitude of minerals as necessary co-factors in our millions of biological pathways and processes.  See the Ultra Mineral Monograph.

The North American continent has had an average of 85% mineral depletion over the past 100 years — the worst of any other country in the world!  During the Past 100 Years by Continent: North America 85%, South America 76%, Asia 76%, Africa 74%, Europe 72%, Australia 55% (US Dept of Agriculture).

Candidiasis Support

April 12, 2016

Dear Friends

Did you know that nosocomal infections of multiply resistant pathogens kill more patients each year than breast cancer and HIV combined?  The war on pathogens with antibiotics is not a war that we are winning.  Picking a fight with natural selection is not a smart thing to do (Read, 2012).

The human gut contains a vast ecosystem of microorganisms, a flora that must be ecologically managed well by us, in order to be truly healthy.  The overuse and misuse of antibiotics in medicine, the practice of giving cattle low growth promoting doses of antibiotics has created grave gastrointestinal problems.  There are better ways to manage the ecosystem within our gut and control the overgrowth of pathogens, without antibiotics.

Dear Friends

In industrialized countries isolated systolic hypertension (ISH) increases steeply with age. Many Americans over the age of 60 have ISH, which is increasingly recognized as a cardiovascular risk. Several studies have shown the strong association between ISH and stroke, kidney failure, cardiovascular morbidity and mortality (Gasowski et al, 2002; Vaccarino et al, 2001).
Reversing or stabilizing the increased arterial stiffness associated with age and disease by targeting any or all of its causes provides of a number of promising new approaches to treatment of systolic hyertension and its sequel, the main causes of mortality and morbidity (Greenwald SE, 2007).

Therapeutic Food supplements magnify the protective benefits of key phytonutrients that support the reduction of ISH.

Cancer Support (continued)

February 17, 2016

Dear Friends

In this weeks Forward Thinking we will continue with our cancer support protocol focusing on Phyto Power and Beta Glucan High Potency Synbiotic.

Last week we looked at vegetables, and research siting their most potent anti-cancer fighters. This week we are getting into the intelligent use of fruits, fibers and probiotics for preventive cancer support.

Metabolic Syndrome

February 3, 2016

Dear Friends

Metabolic Syndrome is a disorder that now affects about 1/4 of the American population and has emerged as a worldwide epidemic.  It may soon replace smoking as the leading cause for Coronary Heart Disease—the number one cause of death for men and women in the US (NIH: NHLBI, 2015). Additionaly, Metabolic Syndrome is causative for diabetes, NAFLD and cancer.

The risk factors for Metabolic Syndrome are (Grundy 2004, McCullough 2011):

  • Abdominal obesity
  • Atherogenic dyslipidemia
  • Raised blood pressure
  • Insulin resistance
  • Proinflammatory state
  • Prothrombotic state

Therapeutic Food protocol for Metabolic Syndrome:

  • Beta Glucan High Potency Synbiotic – 1 heaping tbl BID before 2 largest meals.
  • No. 7 Systemic Booster 1 tsp before bed. 
  • Be Regular – 2 heaping tbl taken as a meal replacement three times a week.
  • Phyto Power – 2 capsules daily.
  • Chromium, Bio-organic with Beet – 1 capsule BID.

Food Science:

How can Therapeutic Foods help in the challenge to reduce of the above risk factors?

There is a multitude of research that strongly makes the point that as dietary fiber goes up the risk of Metabolic Syndrome goes down (Grooms, 2013). Beta Glucan Synbiotic, No. 7 Systemic Booster, Be Regular, and the Phyto Power together contain powerful soluble and insoluble fibers.  Click on their links to see more.

How does fiber do this?  It helps get rid of excess bile, feeds our good gut bacteria which enhances our SCFA production and reduces cholesterol synthesis, reduces macronutrient absorption, low energy density, gastric distension and increase satiety, delayed gastric emptying, effect on gut hormones, reduced post prandial responses.  All of this collectively helps to control body weight, cholesterol, blood sugar and blood pressure (Satija, 2012).

Reducing chronic inflammation is of course the major factor for reducing the above risks and the friendly probiotics, rich assortment of phyto nutrients (i.g. flavonoids,etc) in Beta Glucan Synbiotic, Be Regular, Phyto Power and No. 7 all makes this possible (Pan, 2010).
