Supernatant Synbiotic

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.


Heavy Metal Detox

November 18, 2015

Dear Friends

Heavy metals are shown to be amongst the worst toxic chemicals. But research also shows the place of probiotics in detoxifying heavy metals. For your consideration: add Bioimmersion’s probiotics. Here’s why.

  • Original Synbiotic Formula- one teaspoon daily.
  • Supernatant Synbiotic Formula- one capsule daily.


The food and water we consume are often contaminated with a range of chemicals and heavy metals, such as lead, cadmium, arsenic, chromium and mercury, that are associated with numerous diseases.  Species such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, present in the mouth, gut, and vagina have the ability to bind and detoxify these metals.

Halttunen et al. (2007) showed that Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species can bind lead and cadmium to their cell surface, and hold on to them through defecation.  Singh and Sharma (2010) showed that L. acidophilus was able to bind and remove arsenic from water. Robinson and Tuovinen (1984) demonstrated that L. rhamnosus in yoghurt reduced the bioaccumulation of mercury and arsenic in pregnant women and children.  Shrivastava et al. (2003) showed that lactobacilli can transform chromium (CrVI) to its less toxic form (CrIII).

We have developed our products based on scientific research and/or the practical experience of many healthcare practitioners. There is a growing body of literature on food based nutrition and supplements and their application in support of our health. Please use our products under the advisement of your doctor.

Clinical Notes:

Having both the Supernatant Synbiotic Formula and the Original Synbiotic Formula gives you the option of taking a capsule or a powder.  Both formulas provide excellent support for the chelation and detoxification of toxic heavy metals.  They both contain multiple, but different, species of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium.  If you want the maximum diversity of species take a capsule of Supernatant in the morning and a teaspoon of Original before bed (or vise versa).

Dear Friends

Did you know that constipation has become the most common gastrointestinal complaint in the United States? Sixty million Americans suffer from chronic constipation.

Diets strong in whole plant foods give more regularity! See references below for scientific research.

Fiber is the key to regularity. Our simple recipe is the combination fiber with the Be Regular and one of our probiotic. Today we’ll discuss the Beta Glucan, which has probiotic and added fiber.

Take two heaping tablespoons of our Be Regular, (containing whole seeds of organic quinoa, amaranth, chia, buckwheat and millet). Add to the Be Regular a heaping tablespoon of Beta Glucan High Potency Synbiotic, with oat bran (99.99% gluten free and 10% of which is oat brans soluble beta glucan fibers), organic whole red beet root, inulin soluble fiber (organic chicory root), and probiotics (5 pedigreed lactic acid bacteria).

Stir into a large glass of water or juice; they mix easily and have a nice mild taste. Plus, Be Regular and Beta Glucan Synbiotic work beautifully in a smoothie, giving body, thickness and a low glycemic load value to the overall drink—even when a variety of berries are added.

For further discussion see Clinical Notes below.

Clinical Notes:

Fiber is what causes bulky stools and fiber is found only in whole plant foods. But research is increasingly showing, as Bianchi’s (2010) study did, that higher antioxidant foods such as berries bring also increases the stool size. Berries besides being antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and hormetic (hormone-like) in their action, they are also a good prebiotic and enable the good bacteria to grow, further increasing the bulk of the stool.

Enjoy your smoothie!

Autism and the Gut

October 24, 2015

Dear Friends

Its been two weeks now since we’ve come back from the Integrative Healthcare Symposium in Florida.  It was a great conference, highlighting the human microbiome and its critical importance to our health.  One of the important diseases covered in detail was ASD—Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Did you know that the United Nations estimates that up to 70 million people worldwide are now dealing with ASD.  It is a pandemic in the modern industialized societies, while not so amongst rural indigenous peoples still living off the land.  What is going on?

We need to look at the gut-brain connection.  Here are some research based facts:

  • In 2012, researchers at NIH evaluated children with autism and found that constipation was seen in 85 percent of them and gastrointestinal distress noted in 92 percent. (1)
  • The CDC estimates that children with autism are more than 3.5 times more likely to experience chronic diarrhea and constipation than their peers who do not have autism. (1)
  • Other research has determined that a pattern of autism exists among many individuals with leaky gut syndrome.  They found higher levels of the endotoxin LPS in their systemic circulation. (2)
  • The bottom line is the GI tract ecosystem of individuals with autism is dramatically different from that of people without autism. (3)

In particular individuals with autism tend to have higher levels of clostridial species and clostria produce too much of the short chain fatty acid propionic acid (PPA).  PPA is toxic to the brain if allowed into the bloodstream, causes the immune system to overreact and aggravates the neurological system.(4)

How and what synbiotic formulas from BioImmersion can help?  See the Clinical Notes.

Clinical Notes:

Three products to consider: The Original Synbiotic and the Supernatant Synbiotic have been used successfully by many doctors in supporting the reduction of inflammation in the GI tract of Autistic patients, and the LactORN, our newest probiotic formula that came into the market 4 month ago offers great promise in helping to downregulate the overreaction by the immune system to LPS transiting into the systemic circulation due to leaky gut.

Both the Original and the Supernatant have the ability is inhibit and even retard the Clostridial gut populations.  The Original is a powdered format and the Supernatant is a capsule.  Both will work well with autistic patients, and by rotating them over time you increase the diversity of good bugs coming into the gastrointestinal tract. A feature that can’t be overemphasized. A diversity of probiotic organisms adds a healthy resiliency and redundancy to the functionality necessary to maintain a healthy gastrointestinal ecosytem.

Dear Friends,

Diversity  seems to be a particularly pungent word for this day and age.  Consider the following:

(1) Appreciation for cross-cultural diversity as our world becomes smaller and smaller is an imperative.

(2) Biological scientists have raised the red flag, warning us that our polluting ways are precipitating the loss of tens of thousands of species each year into extinction.  With the two most important predictive markers for a pending planetary mass extinction rising exponentially—CO2 levels and rate of species extinction—many experts are giving us as little as a 100 year before the next Mass Extinction hits.  It will be the sixth for life on planet earth.  The last being 65 million years ago with the lost of the dinosaurs.

(3)  The loss of diversity at the macro level, of animals and plants, is matched at the micro level when we look at the gastrointestinal microbiome.  Due to our overuse of antibiotics and our ultra hygienic life styles our guts lack a biodiversity of bacteria.  Hence the rising tide of Inflammatory Bowel Disorders.

(4)  The reduced density of nutrients in our foods is of survival important in our 21st Century.  It begins in the soil with the loss in diversity of minerals and microbes, and plays out in our plant with a minimal mineral load.  Add the overuse of herbicides and pesticides and you get plants and berries with low photochemical diversity and levels, resulting in foods are that weak and bodies that are chronically ill.

Lack of diversity and the lack of embracing diversity is literally driving us to extinction on many levels.

BioImmersion’s Therapeutic Foods are facing this issue at the dietary level as the Therapeutic Food Supplements add a diversity of polyphenols into our diet which work together towards facilitating our our good health, and supply a wide variety of good probiotics that augment healthy GI tract functioning. See Clinical Notes.

Sincerely yours,
