Fructo Borate is used for the management of osteoarthritis and osteoporosis.

Fructo Borate is a boron bound to carbohydrate – a molecule that is naturally found in fresh fruits, vegetables and honey, and in dried fruits (plums, raisins, apricots).  However, elemental boron must be in the soil from which these plants are grown and converted from its inorganic state to an organic complex tightly bound to carbohydrate. Due to bad farming all over the world, we have a deficiency of boron in our foods, causing higher levels of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis.

This special carbohydrate bound boron is actually found in a healthy bone matrix and hence its usefulness in increasing bone density.  By lowering inflammatory bio markers such as cytokines, chemokines, Fructo Borate significantly reduces joint pain. In research, it greatly lowered knee discomfort and improved flexibility within 7, 14, and 90 days (Hunter et al., 2019). Take 2 – 4 daily till pain subsides.

As we have discussed in our last email, Fructo Borate also reduces systemic levels of hs-CRP (high sensitivity- C-Reactive Protein), a key inflammatory markers for asthma. An increase in serum C-reactive protein levels measured by high-sensitivity assays is associated with airflow obstruction and airway inflammation.  As CRP levels are reduced, so too is an asthmatic episode (Hunter et al., 2019; Takemura et al., 2006).   Take 1-2 capsules daily.

 

Fructo Borate Complex is exceptionally bio-available  new form of boron based on the organic mineral structure found in whole foods.

Dear Friends

Atherosclerosis Cardiovascular Disease (ACD), or clogged arteries, is the leading cause of death in the world. Hypercholesterolemia, or high cholesterol levels in the blood, is one of the  major causative factor (Barquer et al., 2015) .  Hence, statins are among the top selling drugs.

High use of statins, however, comes with possible serious side effects.  Stroher et al. (2015) tested the possible advantages of combining lower doses of statins with a Blueberry Extract, or using Blueberry Extract on its own.  Her research group found that dosing hypercholesterolemic rats with a combination of Zocor (also called SIM) and Blueberry Extract (BE) brought better results. However, using Blueberry Extract alone also brought good results.

Thirty-six hypercholesterolemic rats were divided into six groups of six animals each, with  14 days of the following supplementation regime for each group: (1) Control (only got the high-fat diet), (2) Fat diet + SIM 10mg/kg, (3) Fat diet + BE  25mg/kg, (4) Fat diet + BE 50mg/kg, (5) Fat diet + BE 25mg/kg + SIM, (6) Fat diet + BE 50mg/kg + SIM.  Many beneficial results were found as is presented in bar graphs below.

This graph shows, after histological section, the thickness measurements of the aorta of hypercholesterolemic rats after treatment.  Notice here that groups 3-6 got better results. But the interesting part about this measurement is that group 4 got only 50mg of blueberry extract and has similar result to group 6 which got SIM drug and blueberry extract, 50mg.

Aorta thickness

To see the multitude of other bar graphs from their paper, graphically illustrating the various benefits derived from adding the Blueberry Extract, click the Stroher link in the References below.

After 14 days of supplementation with blueberry extract the levels of total cholesterol, LDLs, and triglycerides were decrease in hypercholesterolemic rats.  Histopathological analysis, analyzing the tissues after death, showed significant decrease of aortic lesions.  Oxidative parameters showed significant reductions in oxidative damage to lipids and proteins and an increase in activities of endogenous antioxidant enzymes such as catalase, superoxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase.

In conclusion, Stroher et al. (2015) state that Blueberry Extract supplementation was able to protect against weight gain, improve the lipid profile, reduce the high levels of total cholesterol, LDL and triglycerides and showed an anti-atherogenic effect in these rats.  The Blueberry Extract also showed improved oxidative parameters, showing a decrease is oxidation of lipids and proteins.  They concluded that as nutraceutical blueberry extract may have great potential as people prefer natural therapies.

Therapeutic Food Blueberry Extract is a powerhouse not only for brain function but for heart health as well.  Recommended dose is 1-2 capsules daily- with 500mg of pure blueberry extract in each capsule. We also suggest 1-2 tablespoons of Beta Glucan Synbiotic for lowering LDL cholesterol, and a primarily whole food, plant-based diet which is shown in research to combat heart disease.

Dear Friends

Longevity research teaches us that when we turn to a whole food plant-based diet, with less meat, dairy, and eggs (and refined, processed foods), we lower inflammation in every cell of our body. As we have discussed in our recent emails on the longevity field of study, inflammation is the root causative factor for most all of our chronic diseases.

Breakfast is a major meal, and hence our notoriously delicious breakfast drink that indeed lowers inflammation with a host of major nutrients that deeply nourish and energize your body. And the breakfast drink does so much more: it lubricates the bowels with fiber and polyphenols, lower cholesterol to benefits the heart, supports the liver, kidneys, immune system, brain, aids in blood sugar regulation, and fortifies bones and joints. It is an amazingly healthy drink.

Here is BioImmersion’s famous morning drink: a breakfast meal all by itself.

In a blender add: (for one person)

  • Be Regular:  Optimal Bowel Health-  1 heaping tbls.
  • Add Flax seed 1 tbls.
  • Bee Pollen- 1 tsp.
  • Fresh or frozen berries (depending on the season)- 1 cup
  • Banana or other fruit like melon, papaya, mango
  • Organic Apple juice, or pineapple, berry, or a juice of your choice- 1 cup.
  • Filtered water- 1 to 2 cups.

Dear Friends

Cellular Senescence means that cells cannot divide due to multiple reasons,  with inflammation posing as one of the greatest. Cellular Senescence hastens the development of chronic diseases like cardiovascular, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, dementias, cancer, immune and kidney dysfunction, IBD, and osteoarthritis among many others.

Current research has shown that certain plant polyphenols (i.e. quercetin and fisetin) are strong senolytic agents (molecules that stop senescence), and have exciting potential  for reducing and preventing senescence, which reduces the risk for developing chronic disease, and even reverses the onset of chronic illnesses and geriatric syndrome.  Research is now focused on the utilization of senolytic molecules in therapies.

The No. 7 Systemic Booster: the New Longevity contains both of these powerful phenolic flavonoids, quercetin and fisetin, within its high-active fruits and vegetables.  Daily dosing at 1 tsp supports the body’s ability to to fight against chronic disease.  (See Further Notes below)

Further notes on cellular senescence: 

Chronic low-grade inflammation (LGI) in the body is an etiological factor in chronic disease and it is also a causative force in cells going into senescence.  Cellular senescence is characterized as a state where cells: (1) lose their ability to divide and renew their healthy functionality; (2) become resistant to apoptosis (cell death); and  (3) increase their production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), and secret into their external environment pro-inflammatory cytokines, bradykines, prostenoids, miRNAs, damage-associated molecular pattern proteins (DAMPs), and other pro-inflammatory mediators, chemokines that attract immune cells.  In other words, these cells create more inflammation; more collateral damage that can lead to pathology.  This condition is called a senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP).

Senescent cells have been identified at sites of pathology in multiple diseases.  They accumulate in adipose tissue in diabetes and with age-related metabolic dysfunction, osteoarthritic joints, the aorta in vascular hypo-reactivity and atherosclerosis and the lung in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.  Transplantation of small numbers senescent cells around the knee joint can cause osteoarthritis (Zhu, Y., et al. 2015).

Therefore, the discovery of strong senolytic molecules  present in certain vegetables and fruits that  are able to delay, prevent, or alleviate a number of chronic  diseases is very exciting. The No. 7 Systemic Booster: the New Longevity is a great starting point to reduce inflammation and deeply nourish our cells with the nutrients they need to function healthily.

Our findings here give support for the speculation that these agents [senolytics] may one day be used for treating cardiovascular disease, frailty, loss of resilience, including delayed recovery or dysfunction after chemotherapy or radiation, neurodegenerative disorders, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, other bone and joint disorders, and adverse phenotypes related to chronologic aging.  Theoretically, other conditions such as diabetes and metabolic disorders, visual impairment, chronic lung disease, liver disease, renal and genitourinary dysfunction, skin disorders, and cancers could be alleviated with senolytics (Zhu,Y. et al., 2017).

Dear Friends

Can a diversity of fruits and vegetables in one’s diet reduce the risk of developing the number one killer in the world – CVD (Cardiovascular Disease).  Can diet really help?

The UK Women’s Cohort Study analyzed the dietary habits of 30,458 women between the ages of 35-69.  The women answered a 217 – item Food Frequency Questionnaire. The conclusion was that total fruit intake rather than intake of a specific type of fruit is more protective against CVD.

The woman who ate a greater variety of fruits, include berries such as blackberries, raspberries, black raspberries and blueberries, grapes, citrus fruit, pomegranates, strawberries and apples had less cardiovascular disease.  These fruits are rich in polyphenols like flavanols, flavonols, anthocyanins, procyanidins, sterols, carotenoids, and hydroycinnamic acids (Lai et al., 2015) – the very phytonutrients needed to reduce inflammation in the body and to turn on the longevity genes (Serino & Salazar, 2019).

See Green Facts for more on the longevity genes.

Therapeutic Food Support:

  • No. 7 Systemic Booster:  The New Longevity-  1 tsp daily includes a concentration of 8 fruits and berries, plus greens from cruciferous veggies: broccoli, kale, spinach, and beet. (Along with probiotics and key nutraceuticals).

Suggestions:  Add one tsp No. 7 to your smoothie, or to your shot glass of diluted juice.
