Dear Friends

Phyto Power:  Supports DNA and cellular integrity during oncogenic treatment due to
its potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties.Phyto Power Photo 3

Food Science
  • DNA & Cellular Integrity: Blueberries, rose hip, and dandelion are shown in research to help maintain cellular integrity, suppressing or interfering with oncogenic transformation, bolstering antioxidant and anti-inflammatory defenses, and contributing significant re-generative health benefits to the brain and nervous system (Jedrejek et al., 2017; Jiménez et al., 2016; Skrovankova et al., 2015; Joseph et al., 2014; Liu et al., 2013; Andersson et al., 2012; Chatterjee et al., 2011; Adams et al., 2010).*
  • Anti-Inflammation: García-Lafuente et al. (2009) conclude that flavonoids from berries and plants behave as anti-inflammatory agents in our body. Blueberries are rich with anthocyanins and a wide variety of phytochemicals that have been shown to effect neuro-regeneration in the brain (Albarracin et al., 2012).*
  • Energy & Weight-Loss: Dandelion is shown to have a great antioxidant activity (Hu et al., 2003), exhibiting diverse biological activities that promote energy, weight loss, and reduced risk of metabolic syndrome (Jedrejek et al., 2017; González-Castejón et al., 2012; Jeon et al., 2008). The Rose hip has a rich phytochemical profile known for its antioxidant protection (Widen et al., 2012), supporting weight loss with a potential mechanism that decreases abdominal visceral fat (Nagatomo et al., 2015).*

Added Suggestion: Combine with the Original Synbiotic to bolster immune support. Add also the greenest food, Organic Chlorella, to support detox mechanism and immunity.

Anti-carcinogenic Support

February 16, 2018

Dear Friends                                                                                                                                                 Phyto Power High Rez 2

Phyto Power is formulated with several species of blueberry, rosehip, and dandelion, shown in research to support DNA and cellular integrity, suppressing or interfering with oncogenic transformation, bolstering antioxidant and anti-inflammatory defenses, and contributing significantly to nerve re-generation.

Blueberries, rose hip, and dandelion are showing great potential in research on many different cancers, such as gastrointestinal tract (Bishayee et al., 2016), breast (Jeyabalan et al., 2014; Adams et al., 2010; Ries-Filho, 2008), brain (Cagle et al., 2012), breast and prostate (Sigsted et al., 2008), skin cancers (Chatterjee et al., 1011; Aggarwal et al., 2004), colon (Jiménez et al., 2016), and more.

Plant phenols have been researched for many years.  Johnson et al. (1994) found plants and their biologically active constituents contribute protective and anti-carcinogenic effects (see Table 1, p. 193).

More recently, Zhan et al. (2016) found that blueberries effect the migration, invasion, proliferation and cell cycle and apoptosis in hepatocellular carcinoma cells. Li et al. (2009), Seeram, (2008), and Serram et al. (2006) have researched different berries for many years to discover their effect on a variety of cancer cells. Yang & Li (2015) have shown that dandelion extract protects human skin fibroblast from UVB damage, while Sigstedt et al. (2008) studies dandelion leaves, flower and roots and their anti-carcinogenic effect on breast and prostate cancers. Rosehip is found to have antiproliferative and anti-oxidant effect (Jiménez et al., 2016), as well as reduce brain tumor proliferation and apoptosis (Cagle, 2012).

Phyto Power utilizes several varieties and the whole plants of blueberries, rosehips, and dandelions. Grown in remote regions of Alaska, these plants and berries are more powerful with high actives due to the pure, harsh and challenging environment of Alaska (Grace et al., 2014; Youself et al., 2013; Dinstel et al., 2013).

Phyto Power is a wildcrafted wonder! Take 1-2 capsules a day.

Globe_Home 3Alaskan berries are known for their phenolic power:

Dinstel R.R., Cascio J., & Koukel S. (2013). The antioxidant level of Alaska’s wild berries: high, higher and highest. Int J Circumpolar Health, 72. DOI: 10.3402/ijch.v72i0.21188

In the last few years, antioxidants have become the stars of the nutritional world. Antioxidants are important in terms of their ability to protect against oxidative cell damage that can lead to conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease, cancer and heart disease – conditions also linked with chronic inflammation. The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of Alaska’s wild berries may have the potential to help prevent these diseases.

Objective: To discover the antioxidant levels of Alaska wild berries and the ways these antioxidant levels translate when preservation methods are applied to the berry.

Design: This research centred on both the raw berries and products made from the berries. In the first year, a variety of wild berries were tested to discover their oxygen radical absorption capacity (ORAC) in the raw berries. The second level of the research project processed 4 different berries – blueberries, lingonberries, salmonberries, highbush cranberries – into 8 or 9 products made from these berries. The products were tested for both ORAC as well as specific antioxidants.

Results: The Alaska wild berries collected and tested in the first experiment ranged from 3 to 5 times higher in ORAC value than cultivated berries from the lower 48 states. For instance, cultivated blueberries have an ORAC scale of 30. Alaska wild dwarf blueberries measure 85. This is also higher than lower 48 wild blueberries, which had a score of 61. All of the Alaskan berries tested have a level of antioxidant considered nutritionally valuable, ranging from 19 for watermelon berries to 206 for lingonberries on the ORAC scale. With the processed products made from 4 Alaska wild berries, one of the unexpected outcomes of the research was that the berries continued to have levels of antioxidants considered high, despite the effects of commonly used heat-processing techniques. When berries were dehydrated, per gram ORAC values increased.

Conclusion: Alaska wild berries have extraordinarily high antioxidant levels. Though cooking lowered the antioxidant level, and adding ingredients such as sugar diluted the antioxidant concentration, products made from berries are high sources of antioxidants.

Plants Heal

February 13, 2018

Dear Friends

Plants heal. A plant based diet centered around vegetable, fruits, grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds is now being promoted by Kaiser Permanente (the largest of Americas health care providers), the WHO (The World Health Organization), and Harvard Medical School.
Noncommunicable diseases (chronic diseases) are on the rise. According to our Dr. Dohrea Bardell, statistics on “our aging population project” that 6 out of 10 people will live with 1 to 5 different chronic illnesses. But that is not all, chronic diseases also affect our younger (0-18) and working-age (from 18-64) populations.
Plant based diets (vegetarian and vegan) have shown in research to prevent and even reverse noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) such as Metabolic Syndrome, Obesity, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Cancer and additionally Arthritis, and Neurological Disorders. More on that will be published in the joint project with Dr. Judy Stevens-Long and Dr. Dohrea Bardell later this year.

The following four BioImmersion products provide the essence of what these dietary regimes must give your body to support your body attaining health in old age.

Garlic: 1 capsule each day. Garlic is shown to not only fight colds/flu but to support the body against a variety of cancers.
Cruciferous Sprouts– 2 capsules a day before bed to support the liver’s ability to detox (phase II detox). Cruciferous vegetables are touted as the best preventative foods against cancer.
Phyto Power– 1-2 capsules daily taken in the morning to provide the brain with the best food for better thinking, regeneration of nerves, and prevent aging brain. The potent polyphenols also protect against a variety of cancers (blueberries and rose hips), offer anti inflammatory properties, and liver support (dandelion).

Beta Gluten High Potency Synbiotic– one heaping tablespoon taken before breakfast or dinner. One of the most potent probiotic product with 65 billion strong probiotic organisms, and our famous beta glucans with red beet root to lower cholesterol and support liver function. The beta glucans also are shown to support  prevention of variety of cancers.

As you can see, we revere plants and their power to heal our bodies.

Choosing 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.

Think better with blueberry

January 22, 2018

Dear Friends
Blueberry Extract
The CNS (the brain and spinal cord) is particulary vulnerable to oxidative stress, and this vulnerability increases during ageing (Joseph et al, 1998).  In fact as Dr. Joseph put it, “the brain becomes a hot bed of free radical activity in our old age.”

Shukitt-Hale et al. (2015) demonsrated in her research titled, The beneficial effects of berries on cognition, motor behaviour and neuronal function in ageing, the powerful cognitive effects by adding blueberry extract and strawberry extract to the diets of senile old rats.

The results showed that rats consuming the berry diets exhibited enhanced motor performance and improved cognition, specifically working memory. In addition, the rats supplemented with blueberry and strawberry diets showed increased hippocampal neurogenesis and expression of insulin-like growth factor 1.

What about research today on the bioavailability of blueberry polyphenols and their beneficial effect with human subjects?

Sandhu et al. (2017) explored the metabolic fate of blueberry anthocyanins after daily (90 days) supplementation of freeze-dried blueberry (equivalent of 1 cup of fresh blueberries).  Their conclusion was that blueberry anthocyanins are absorbed and extensively metablized resulting in the production of various phenolic acid derivatives and their conjugates, all together contributing to the bioavailability and beneficial effects associated with blueberry comsumption.

Miller et al. (2017) studied men and women between the ages of 60 and 75 years. Their findings showed that the group consuming the equivalent of one cup of blueberries daily for 90 days exhibited significantly fewer errors in a verbal learning test and increased mental flexibility on a task-switching test, relative to the placebo group.

Dear Friends
Phyto Power High Rez
Stull’s (2016) review, Blueberries’ Impact on Insulin Resistance and Glucose Intolerance, highlighted a multitude of in vivo and in vitro studies that demonstrated another of blueberries important attributes — the anti-diabetic effects of blueberries and berry extracts in insulin-resistant rodent, human, and cell culture models.

The scientific evidence in support of the anti-diabetic health benefits of blueberries and blueberry extract is encouraging. Epidemiological studies reported that consumption of foods rich in anthocyanins, especially from blueberries, were associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes (T2DM) and of peripheral insulin resistance.

Prediabetes is a condition in which blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be classified as T2DM.  Although the prediabetes stage is when corrective actions need to be implemented to prevent the possible development of T2DM, many studies find blueberries to have an anti-diabetic effect. See the references below.

Dinstel et al. (2013) found the blueberries in Alaska to have the highest anthocyanins content. See Green Facts below. Our Phyto Power utilizes Alaskan blueberries’ potent levels of plant phenols.

Phyto Power is comprised of several species of wildcrafted blueberries, Rose hip, and Dandelion, including their leaves, stems, roots, and flowers. Growing wild and strong in remote areas of Alaska, these berries and plants are handpicked at the peak of their phytonutrient potential. For centuries, indigenous tribes of Alaskan Natives have used these power-filled berries and plants for their daily nourishment as well as ceremonial and medicinal purposes
