Dear Friends

Boron is one of the most important minerals in our diet.  How are your boron levels?

The average American’s boron levels are 1 mg/day; and, many studies have shown that the benefits to be derived from boron intake don’t occur until levels of 3 mg/day and above are achieved (Price et al., 2012).

BioImmersion’s Fructo Borate Complex is a new form of boron supplementation that duplicates the exact nature of the molecular structure of dietary boron found in fruits and vegetables— that is, boron in the food chain is always found bound to carbohydrate (US Patent #5,902,049).

Fructo Borate Complex contains 240 mg of Fructo Borate along with 260 mg of calcium ascorbate to provides 6 mg of elemental boron.  There is 500 mg per vegetarian capsule with 60 capsules per bottle.  There are no excipients of any kind.

Boron is found to be a missing mineral in our daily nutrition as industrialized farming has depleted boron from our soil. Fructo Borate Complex is a complex of calcium, natural fructose, and boron; exactly as it is found in fresh and dried fruits, vegetables, herbs and wine (Miljkovic et al., 2009; Price et al., 2012).  This form of boron is not only safe but also bioavailable compared with most commercial forms of boron (Scorei et al., 2011).

(See the references to the above concluding bullet points in the 2015 paper by Lara Pizzorno entitled, Nothing Boring About Boron)

What are possible benefits from adequate boron intake?

  • Is essential for the growth and maintenance of bone.
  • Greatly improves wound healing.
  • Beneficially impacts the body’s use of estrogen, testosterone, and vitamin D.
  • Boosts magnesium absorption.
  • Reduces levels of inflammatory biomakers, such as hs-CRP and TNF-alpha.
  • Raises levels of antioxidant enzymes, such as SOD, catalase and glutathione peroxidase.
  • Protects against pesticide-induced oxidative stress and heavy-metal toxicity.
  • Improves brain electical activity, cognitive performance, and short-term memory in elders.
  • Influences the formation and activity of key biomolecules, such as SAM-e and NAD.
  • Has demonstrated preventive and therapeutic effects in a number of cancers, such as prostate, cervical, and lung cancers and multiple and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
  • May help ameliorate the adverse effects of traditional chemotherapeutic agents.

Globe_Home 3We’ve been talking, in our last two emails, about the deficiency of certain minerals in our diet, largely in part because they have become missing in our soil due to faulty farming methods.  If they aren’t in the soil, they won’t be in plants coming from these farms.

The following link is a fabulous and totally inspiring TED talk given by farmer Gabe Brown presenting us with an absolute solution on how we can feed the world if we start farming with nature as he has impressively demonstrated in North Dakota on his massive farm.  The Febuary 2016 talk is called: Regeneration of our Lands: A Producer’s Perspective.

Maui anyone?

February 13, 2017

Dear Friends

We will be in Maui at the Hawaii Doc Talks Convention! Are you coming? It is March 2-5 and we are excited!

On Friday March 3rd we will host the breakfast and teach on a topic that gets right to the heart of the matter:  The Intelligence and Power of Therapeutic Food Supplements: Science, Research, and Protocol. If you cannot attend the convention how about a zoom meeting?

Here is our invitation to the doctors in Maui and of course to you as well:

In this enlivening 30-minute presentation and discussion you will learn the power and intelligence of using foods therapeutically to potentiate your existing protocols.

The science on food as a therapeutic tool is definitive and encouraging.  Learning how to utilize food supplements to heal the difficult ailing conditions of our time is imperative.  Food in its concentrated form is foundational to your protocols.

Our Learning Objectives:

  • The historicity of food science:  the power and intelligence of plant based foods.
  • Learn how to utilize the Therapeutic Food supplements for non-communicable diseases (NCDs).
  • Discover the next generation probiotics:  infection fighting supernatant metabolites and immune boosting microRNA.

The time:  Whatever is best for your schedule.  Just give a call— 425-451-3112— and let’s schedule a time.

Yours truly,

Seann Bardell CEO

Dear Friends

A very big congratulation to our amazing and fantastic BioImmersion president, Dohrea Bardell, on becoming a PhD.  We had a wonderful and joyful celebration this past weekend at Fielding Graduate University in Santa Barbara, California.

Dohrea belongs to a very interesting group of theoretical scientists. Her PhD research is focused upon the realm of International Relations, in specific, she built a theoretical model for world peace.

Dohrea has studied the nature of theories for a long time, which as we know, frame all scientific research.

Theories create the framework for measuring and evaluating life and our experience of the world in which we live.  At this point (as I understand it from Dohrea), we are going through a major shift in our research community, and many scientists are not even aware of this important phenomenological change. As a hint, the microbiome project belongs to a very different world theory, and hence will slowly change the way we consider research and the world around us. Exciting!

Dohrea studied one of the most influential and complex philosophical thinker in the Western world, Immanuel Kant. She built a Kantian normative peace model— a theoretical model that we can enact as a law.  Peace, as Dohrea describes it, is a categorical imperative: A binding international law. A universal law that considers the dignity of Humanity as its core.

Peace as a categorical imperative has a beautiful ultimate goal – But, to find out what it is, as she told her audience at the graduation ceremony, “you’ll need to read my dissertation or monograph when it is published.”  So stay tuned. It is in the process of being published, and I will keep you posted.

Congratulations Dohrea!

Celebrate Earth Day

April 22, 2016

Dear Friends

Let’s celebrate Earth Day!!!   Here’s the link: Earth Day — April 22.

The year of the first Earth Day was 1970, and it gave voice to an emerging consciousness that we all need to come together to make critical changes in our environmental practices. Here we are, it’s 2016, and this reality is clearer and more urgent than ever.

The Earth Day Network is working to protect our planet every day of the year, with tens of thousands of partners across 192 countries.  We’re at a critical moment in the fight to defend the health of our planet. (The Earth Day Network: Join the Movement)

Dear Friends

It was Albert Einstein’s 100th year celebration yesterday, as I am sure you noticed, and here’s a great quote from him that he shared for us all in 1949:

“A human being is a part of a whole, called by us—universe—a part limited in time and space.  He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest… a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.  This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us.  Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassions to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

That sure is the task at hand, don”t you think?
