Dear Doctor

Have you noticed a few extra pounds since “captivity” begun? Eating too late at night? Drinking more wine? Stressed about the future?

The Weight-Less is your rescue remedy, an ocean of goodness, literally, in every capsule. The rescue supplement is made from seaweed extracts and the balancing and energizing 7 keto DHEA.

Taken 20 minutes before your breakfast, lunch or evening (afternoon) drink, Weight-Less slows down the infusion of sugar into your bloodstream, thereby reducing insulin spikes and the damaging effects of hyperglycemia and extra weight.

WL FWeight-Less: Smart Weight Loss

The brown seaweed is wild-crafted, Ascophyllum nodosum (kelp) and Fucus vesiculosus (bladderwrack), along with 7-Keto DHEA, are calming and effective.

This exceptionally smart formula lowers the glycemic load of complex and simple carbohydrates (sugar, grains, potatoes) for better insulin management, and it also offers a power-filled phenolic activity for antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects (Roy et al., 2011). Exactly the calming and balancing effect you need now.

For many decades, 7-Keto has been shown an ability to turn on fat burning mechanism and offer an effective and safe way to lose weight (Bobyleva et al., 1997). Together, with the phlorotannin extracts of wild-crafted kelp and bladderwrack seaweeds, Weight Less offers sustained energy level throughout the day as it modulates carbohydrate digestion and absorption for better weight management and metabolic health (Gabbia et al., 2017; Catarino et al., 2017).

Suggested use: 1-2 capsules, 20 minutes before meals for maximum effectiveness.

Dear Doctor

Why Polyphenols? Because they have molecules that act like generals – organizing and directing the body to repair, heal, protect, and so much more!

In this research article, we will look at how polyphenols improve cardiovascular health.

Lai et al. (2015) reported that total fruit intake (g/day) derived from a 217-item Food Frequency Questionnaire was obtained from 30,458 women (aged 35–69 years) at baseline from 1995–1998., the richest sources of phenolic compounds, correlated with improved cardiovascular health with an estimated 6–7% reduction in deaths from CVDs for every 80 g portion. This study concluded that total fruit intake rather than intake of a specific type of fruit is protective against CVD. In terms of specific types of fruits, commonly researched varieties include berries, such as blackberries, raspberries, black raspberries and blueberries, grapes, citrus fruit, pomegranates, strawberries and apples. These fruits are rich in polyphenols like flavanols, flavonols, anthocyanins, procyanidins, sterols, carotenoids, and hydroycinnamic acids.

Phyto Power- DNA & Cellular Health as a dietary supplement offers several species of especially potent wild-crafted, Alaskan Blueberries, Rosehips, and Dandelions, offering powerful hermetic benefits of polyphenols for DNA and cellular health.

Take two capsules daily.

The wilds of Alaska provide an amazing environment for powerful plants and berries— fertile volcanic ash soil, and a harsh environment that challenges plants to put out high levels of phenols (e.g. flavonoids) to protect themselves.

To give you an idea on the impact a region has on the concentration of medically useful actives in its produce notice the different between an Alaskan rosehip and the typical European rosehip (the dog-rose) in terms of their phytonutrient load.  All of our fruits and vegetables used in our Therapeutic Food Supplement are sourced with this degree of thoughtfulness for high actives.

Flavonoids

  • Quercetin- 10.50 (Alaskan rosehip) verses 1.05 (European rosehip) in mg/g.
  • Hyperoside- 3.03 verses 4.30
  • Kaempferol- 1.62 verses 0.00

Dear Doctor

What promotes repair in the body? Intense polyphenols.

Phyto Power supplies a broad diversity of polyphenols which are molecules that behave like Generals in the army, directing our body’s physiology into expressing longevity pathways. Longevity is the scientific field that studies root causes of chronic illness and what moves our body towards repair and healing, as well as reversing aging and disease (Lee et al., 2014; Davinelli et al., 2012).  This process is also defined by the word hormesis.

The concept of hormesis is described as the adaptive response of cells and organisms to low dosages of phytochemicals. This adaptive response stimulates a beneficial effect in the body (Mattson, 2008, 2008a). Calabrese et al. conducted many studies on hormetic phytochemicals and vitagenes (a group of genes that are responsible for cellular homeostasis during times of stress) in aging and longevity, including the effect of antioxidants such as polyphenols on neuro-generation (2012, 2011, 2009). The vitagene network of genes involved in the process of repair and maintenance is thought of as the longevity assurance processes: the efficient functioning of various maintenance and repair processes assuring our survival and health (Rattan, 1998; see also Cornelius et al., 2013; Calabrese et al., 2010; Rattan, 2010; 2004).

Dear Doctor

Globally about 1 in 6 deaths is due to cancer (World Health Organization, WHO, 2018, Cancer Statistics).  Yet some of the most common vegetables offer us the best protection against cancer.

Boivin et al., (2009) evaluated the inhibitory effects of extracts isolated from 34 vegetables on the proliferation of 8 different tumor cell lines: breast cancer, brain tumors, kidney cancer, lung cancer, childhood brain tumors, pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer and stomach cancer.  As you can see in their bar graphs the winners were the Allium family and the Cruciferous family.  Of those two groups garlic and broccoli were the leaders respectively in inhibiting the proliferation of all tested cancer cell  lines.

 

Antiproliferative vegies for cancer

Dear Doctor

We need to eat and supplement with more blueberries. Why? Because blueberry and blueberry extract in particular can protect us from cognitive decline and help reverse the effects of senescence (when cells lose the ability to reproduce).

Scientific research indicates that a cup (or two) of blueberry every day will improve cognitive performance, improve our athletic abilities (balance, strength, and endurance), and even elevate our mood (Miller et al., 2018; Schrager et al., 2015; Khalid et al., 2017).  Research also emphasizes that the quantity of blueberries matter: one cup a day is good but 2 cups a day may be even better (Miller & Shukitt-Hale,  2012).  And children can greatly benefit too (Whyte, 2016; Khalid, 2017).

The BioImmersion Blueberry Extract is a serious product.  The cognitive, mood enhancing, and athletic benefits all emanate from the blueberry pigment. That is  exactly what we extract from the North American blueberry.  Each capsule contains 500mg of this precious extract, equivalent to one and a quarter cups of blueberries.  In fact,  it takes 80 lbs. of blueberries to get 1 lb. of this extract!

Recommended dose:  1-2 capsules daily.

Order Now: Blueberry-Extract
