Ultra Minerals

Dear Doctor

The proprietary mix of plant minerals and apple extract in our new product ENERGY was used in a double blind research by Joy et al. (2016). The research demonstrated that the mix increases energy and enhances performance during exercise. The mix also helped relax sore muscles from over exercising. We suggest one capsule a day or when you need extra energy.

ENERGY

The Research

Twenty-five healthy, resistance-trained, male subjects completed this double-blind study.  All subjects were prohibited from using any supplements not provided in the study except for a multivitamin or protein powder food substitute, which they were not permitted to use within 2 hours before or after resistance training sessions.

Each subject was required to be capable of lifting 1.5 times their bodyweight in the squat and deadlift and 1 times bodyweight in the bench press.  At baseline, the placebo group (PLA) was able to squat 1.71, bench press 1.45, and dead lift 2.17 times their bodyweight; and the treatment (TRT) was able to squat 1.66, bench press 1.31, and deadlift 1.93 times their bodyweight.

Subjects were randomly assigned to either the PLA or TRT groups.  The TRT got 1 serving of 150mg of the proprietary blend of Energy, which is one capsule. And, the PLA group got the placebo.  The single capsule dose was given 45 minute prior to training on training days or at a similar time of day on rest days.

The resistance training program, weeks 1-8, consisted of one muscle hypertrophy-oriented workout, one power-oriented workout, and one strength-oriented workout featuring cycle ergometer Wingates following strength training.

The back squat, bench press, and deadlift exercises were performed on each day along with several other multi- and single-joint exercises.  Participants rested 48-72 hours between each training day.  During the overreach phase (weeks 9 and 10), participants performed high volume workouts on Monday through Thursday with a strength-oriented workout or performance testing conducted on Friday for weeks 9 and 10, respectively.

The taper phase (weeks 11 and 12) consisted of one power day on Mondays then strength and power days on both Wednesdays and Fridays performed at low volume for back squat, bench press, and deadlift only.

The Results

Energy appeared to beneficially augment strength and power adaptations to resistance training and attenuate power loss during overreaching (over exercising).  Squat and deadlift IRM both increased to a greater degree in TRT than in PLA,  Peak power in the vertical jump seemed to increase as a result of training and supplementation, and vertical jump peak power and peak velocity did not decline following overreaching.  Strength endurance was preserved during overreaching in TRT compared to PLA. The proprietary blend of ancient peat and apple extracts may be better suited to resist performance decrements, as a decline in performance was only observed in the PLA group in the present study

Our new ENERGY is here!

November 14, 2018

Dear Friends

We are very pleased to let you know that our new product, ENERGY– a combination of our plant Ultra Minerals plus the addition of apple extract – is here!

And, you are going to love it. Who doesn’t need more energy in their body today?  Energy provides clean, healthy energy that our body relies on to fuel all of its metabolic processes—ATP.

What is so exciting about Energy are the benefits shown in clinical human studies, by our collaborating scientists, using Energy’s exact ingredients and suggested doses.  Studies showed increases in strength, power, and stamina in adult atheletes, while in other trials with aged adults, a single treatment [of Energyat a serving of 150mg resulted in a significant increase of blood level of total ATP;  with no concomitant increase in blood ROS [free radicals] or serum lactate [lactic acid] and a reduction of total mTOR levels in blood under these experimental conditions (Reyes-Izquierdo et el., 2013).

ENERGY

Food Science

Joy et al.’s (2016) study, Ancient peat [ultra minerals] and apple extracts supplementation may improve strength and power adaptations in resistance trained men, aimed to determine the effects of a proprietary blend of ultra minerals derived from ancient peat and apple extracts on athletic performance. It was hypothesized that supplementation would improve strength and power over the duration of the training program as well as blunt a decrement in performance due to overreaching.

Overreaching is a training volume and/or intensity of exercise resulting in performance decrements.  In the state of overreaching, the adaptation capacity to training load is decreased.  In the state of overreaching one can not achieve optimal performance and is more susceptible to illness and injury.

Their conclusion was that the proprietary blend of plant ultra minerals and apple extracts (Energy) were capable of increasing lower body and total strength as well as lower body power output compared at an equal-volume, visually-identical placebo.  Moreover, the supplement was able to prevent performance decrements commonly associated with increased training volume and overreaching.

Suggested use: one capsule a day.

What’s new at BioImmersion?

September 18, 2018

Dear Friends

What’s new at BioImmersion?   Plenty!  And, we are very excited to share the good news this week.  First, we are almost done updating all the labels.  Thank you, Hovie Hawk, our amazing website and label art designer who we think has done a beautiful job! Secondly, we continually seek out and incorporate into our formulas more powerful plant materials and bio-available nutriceuticals. Our proprietary blends of naturally occuring, whole probiotics, complete with their supernatant and ORNs are better than ever. We have been working in the last two years with our scientists and researchers to advance and update our formulations according to the latest scientific findings.

As ususal, we are not trendy or commercial – we hold firm to scientific research and formulate accordingly.

Here is a glimpse of four advanced formulas.  I’ll expand on them in the coming weeks.

(1)  GLUCOSINOLATES & SULFORAPHANES:  Organic Broccoli Sprouts

  • This product advances the Cruciferous Sprout Complex, with six times  the potency of sulforaphane potential.
  • Glucosinolate is the precursor molecule to glucoraphanin which is the precursor to sulforaphanes.
  • Sulforaphes enhance detoxication of aflatoxins, the most dangerous of mold toxins, and air-borne pollutions, and is a major inducer of phanse 2 detoxication enzymes for liver detox.

G and S


(2)  ENERGY:  Plant Ultra Minerals with Apple Extract

  • Our proprietary blend of ancient plant minerals and apple extract has been clinically testedto increase ATP levels by enhancing mitochondrial ATP production.
  • Resistance training with healthy males saw increases in their strength and endurance while taking this product.
  • Supplementation with our Energyblend of ancient peat minerals and apple extract enhanced resistance training-induced skeletal muscle hypertrophy without affecting fat mass or blood chemistry of rhese healthy males.

ENERGY

 

(3)  No. 7 Systemic Booster:  The New Longevity

  • The new longevity: In research, aging is linked to a variety of chronic illnesses that occur due to a continual inflammatory state in the body, which accelerates stem cells’ deterioration and ultimately lessens our ability to regenerate. 
  • The No 7 combination of Polyphenols (from high active berries, fruit, veggies, and greens), Fibers, Prebiotic, B12, Fructo Borate, Folate, Chromium, and the new blend of naturally occurring whole Probiotics with their Supernatant and ORNs offer potent calming nutrients and rejuvination.
  • The No 7 boosts many systems in the body: the GI Tract, Urogenital, Osteo-skeletal, Cardiovascular, Brain and Neurological, Detoxification, Metabolic, Digestive, and Energy.

No7_ 8.15.18

 

(4)  High ORAC Synbiotic:  Post Antibiotic Care

  • The High ORAC is 10 times more potent with Total ORAC of 40,000ppm! The advanced formula’s Polyphenols re-energize our bodies by boosting nitric oxide levels in the blood; stimulate antioxidant activity while reducing ROS; improve cellular oxygen consumption.
  • The new naturally occuring whole probiotics with Supernatant and ORNs create a more acidic ph balance in the gut, allowing a better growth of good organisms while creating an antimircrobial effect that protects the GI tract membrane from opportinistic pathogen- e.g., Candida.
  • Since antibiotics often unbalance the microbiome (GI Tract) resulting in overgrowth of yeast in the gut and vagina, we have chosen plant extracts that have antimicrobial properties, and together with the probiotic, reduce pathogenic populations, calm the GI, and restore normal balance to the microbiome.

Chronic inflammation and oxidative stress in human carcinogenesis.  International Journal of Cancer, 121(11), 2381-2386, state that a wide array of chronic inflammatory conditions predispose susceptible cells to neoplastic transformation.

Inflammatory condition occurs when the generation of free radicals and active inter-mediates in a system exceeds the system’s ability to neutralize and eliminate them.  Reactive intermediates of oxygen and nitrogen may directly oxidze DNA, or may interfere with DNA repair.

The above link takes you to this review which focuses on some of these intricate events by discussing the relationships occurring among oxidative/nitrosative/metabolic stress, inflammation and cancer.

You can see now when contemplating on the features and benefits of our products outlined above that they have major applications for this chronic inflammation condition and its down stream consequences.

Globe_Home 3Choosing 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.

Hi Everybody

I am back from my June hiatus on Forward Thinking Newsletter production, and excited to be sharing with you all again.  There is so much important stuff for us all to talk about regarding “food as medicine”.

This is after all the theme of the BioImmersion Therapeutic Food Supplements.  First of all, we must consider the wisdom of our 3 billion year old mother of all teachers- Mother Nature (see Janine Benjus below in Green Facts).

When we think about food, the food chain comes to mind, and this cyclic reality begins with the autotrophs (green plants). What comes to mind here is BioImmersion’s Organic Chlorella, our Phyto Power (wild-crafted berries from Alaska), our Cruciferous Sprouts, our Garlic, and our Blueberry Extract.  We offer the hormetic power of plant phytochemicals to heal.

But a prior to the food chain comes the raw material of earth from which our bodies are ultimately made- the inorganic elements (the minerals).  And, here we also have some very unique and powerful products- Ultra Minerals, Fructo Borate and BioOrganic Chromium.

For the purpose of your detailing and practical usage of, I will focus on the Ultra Minerals- Mesozoic Vegetate.  A true mineral multiple for us derived from DEEP TIME.

Back 65,000,000 years ago, in the late Dinosaur period, the earth had lush tropical forests teaming with all kinds of plant and animal life, and of course the earth’s living microbiome.   In fact,  by weight the microbiome is heavier than all of the higher plant’s and animal’s mass combined.

Then came the crash- THE FIFTH MASS EXTINCTION- and for many of the higher forms (around 75%) life must start over again, reemerging from the bacteria, slime, mold, and higher surviving phyla.  Now here is the interesting and exciting part, around the world there exists still today accessible deposits of the ancient rain forests, and it is from one of these massive deposits that we obtain our Mesozoic Vegetate.  From this vegetable matter we exact 72 plant derived minerals for our ULTRA MINERALS.

ultra_minerals 2

Using pure water, we are able to extract from the ancient peat (also referred to as “humic shale”) 72 different kinds of nano-sized, negatively charged minerals in a hydro-collodial solution.  This liquid we then drum dry into an absolutely pure mineral powder.

Colloidal minerals are negatively charged, hydrophilic, and nano-sized.  They form direct hydrogen bonds with water, and are therefore water-soluble and nearly 100% instantly absorbable with digestion.  If you open up a capsule in water, it immediately homogenizes in the water, and the minerals are absorbable when rubbed on the skin.

We have put 150mg of this pure negatively charged mineral powder into vegetarian capsules, 60 capsules to a bottle.  Dosages are 1 to 4 capsules a day.  Ultra Minerals is manufactured under GMP, Kosher, GRAS, and is without excipients of any kind.  Check out the Specification Sheet on these minerals in Ultra Minerals by clicking on the foregoing link, and then clicking on the Ingredient tab.  These are typical and not guaranteed values, as some natural variation in the source Mesozoic vegetate occurs from production lot to production lot.

Plant based minerals are naturally chelated through plant root uptake and digestion.  This is important to understand for we know that aluminum for example in its insoluble aluminum oxide or hydroxide form is toxic to our bodies, but in its soluble aluminum sulfate form is not.  All of the aluminum in this ancient vegetate is in the form of aluminum sulfate and has GRAS status by our FDA.

Healthy mineral rich soil, filled with an abundance of microbes, makes for healthy plants, and healthy plants makes for healthy animals.  The historicity of use of these ancient peet deposits by locals around the world in their farming and the benefits derived for their animals and for human energy, stamina and health is very exciting.  We are pleased to bring you this powerful Therapeutic Food supplement.

Sincerely yours,

Seann
