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 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).

Can the Blue Zones be a blueprint for living longer, better lives in the US?
“A growing number of US cities are adopting the secrets of longivity discovered in Blue Zones.” (Blue Zone Website).
