Fatty Liver Support

Dear Doctor

We live in an increasingly toxic world with novel and old virulent pathogens.  Your patients’ defense system must be ready and able to protecting their health.

High quality probiotics ingested on a regular basis can greatly add to the body’s defensive ability.  The Original Synbiotic strains are chosen for their strength, compatibility, safety and their 40 years of proven ability to neutralize food borne pathogens and xenobiotics (pollution, chemicals, drugs, and heavy metals).

O F

The Original’s probiotics are researched pedigreed strains of lactic acid bacteria that support the development of a healthy GI tract microbiome.

A healthy gut microbiome is dependent on strong and proven probiotics, such as the Original strains. The Original Synbiotic provides a powerful symbiotic combination of Lactobacillus acidophilus, Streptococcus thermophilus, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, and Bifidobacterium longum.

Suggested Use:  Take one tsp  daily

Research

The contamination of food with aflatoxins is a worldwide problem. Mold mycotoxins compromise the blood-brain barrier and induce neurodegenerative processes. L rhamnosus binds AFB1 in vivo and reduces bio-absorption of the toxin from the gut. L. acidophilus and B. longum neutralize AFB1 and AFM1 by binding mechanisms. S. thermophilus reduces content of ochratoxin A.

Mutagens cause impaired cell function, cell death or cell transformation into cancer cells. L. acidophilus, B. longum, L. rhamnosus, S. thermophilus and L. plantarum neutralize heterocyclic amines and nitrosamines, two of the most common and powerful mutagenic molecules found in our diet.

Verocytotoxin producing E. coli s0157 are emerging food borne pathogens worldwide. B. longum neutralizes this toxin.

Heavy metals are shown to be amongst the worst toxic chemicals. But research also shows the place of probiotics in detoxifying heavy metals.

The food and water we consume are often contaminated with a range of chemicals and heavy metals, such as lead, cadmium, arsenic, chromium and mercury, that are associated with numerous diseases.  Species such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, present in the mouth, gut, and vagina have the ability to bind and detoxify these metals.

Halttunen et al. (2007) showed that Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species can bind lead and cadmium to their cell surface, and hold on to them through defecation.  Singh and Sharma (2010) showed that L. acidophilus was able to bind and remove arsenic from water. Robinson and Tuovinen (1984) demonstrated that L. rhamnosus in yoghurt reduced the bioaccumulation of mercury and arsenic in pregnant women and children.  Shrivastava et al. (2003) showed that lactobacilli can transform chromium (CrVI) to its less toxic form (CrIII).

The collective ability of the Original probiotic organisms to protect the frontline border of our GI tract membrane from the aggressive enterovirulent pathoges is accomplished via: the production of bactercins, creation of an acid barrier, stimulation of the cell mediated immune system, and protective colonization of enterocytes.

Cani et al. (2008) found that a high animal fat diet changes the GI tract microbiome into a population of increasing numbers of Gram-negative bacteria, which raises the level of LPS endotoxins within the gut lumen and allows their passing through the GI tract membrane into the plasma.

The research team concluded that the plasma concentration of lipopolysaccharides (LPS) controls the inflammatory tone of the body.  This means that high concentrations of LPS set the stage for endotoxemia, resulting in metabolic diseases (obesity, diabetes, CVD) and cancer.  The Original strain of lactic acid bacteria reduce the levels of gram negative bacteria in the gut and support the tightening of a leaky GI tract membrane.

The Original Synbiotic is a collection of pedigreed strains of 5 lactic acid bacteria that help our body shore up its defenses against pathogenic bacteria, virus, molds, heavy metals and much more.

Transformation to healthy diets by 2050 will require substantial dietary shifts. Global consumption of fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes will have to double, and consumption of foods such as red meat and sugar will have to be reduced by more than 50%. A diet rich in plant-based foods and with fewer animal source foods confers both improved health and environmental benefits. (Walter Willett MD, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, 2019).

 

 

Dear Doctor

Are we stress binging? Eating too many of our special comfort foods? Not enough of vegetables and fruits?  We so understand.

The beautiful thing about Weight-Less is that it does work.  Taken 20 minutes before that intense snack or a calorie laden meal, 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

Comprised of wild-crafted brown seaweed, Ascophyllum nodosum (kelp) and Fucus vesiculosus (bladderwrack), along with 7-Keto DHEA, Weight-Less is unique and effective.

This exceptionally smart formula not only lowers the glycemic load of complex and simple carbohydrates (sugar, grains, potatoes) for better insulin management, but Weight-Less also offers a power-filled phenolic activity for antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects (Roy et al., 2011). Exactly what we need in times of stress.

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

Scientists agree that chronic low grade inflammation (LGI) in our body is the driving force behind the rise in chronic illnesses around the world.  65% of American fall into this category.

A dysbiotic gut (a bad combination of the wrong bacteria in our gut) creates LGI.  The most powerful factor determining the make-up of our gastro-intestinal microbiome lies in how we manage our diet—we desperately need more fruits and vegetable, and dramatically less simple sugars, highly processed foods, and less meat, meat products, and fats.

Most of the world’s industrial societies fall dramatically short of eating at least 5-7 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. That is the key reason we created the BioImmersion Therapeutic Foods Supplements.  These precious and potent veggies, greens, fruits, berries, ancient seeds and grains, probiotics, and plant derived minerals provide a broad spectrum of the necessary amounts of the phytonutrients (in particular polyphenols) that foster the development of a healthy gut microbiome, reducing LGI, and strongly supporting a healthy longevity..

Here are key Therapeutic Foods Supplements to add to your diet:

A Deep Nutritional Booster

December 20, 2019

Dear Friends

We all have those days when we realize we have not eaten many veggies, greens, fruits, or wholesome seeds and grains. And let us be clear: That little lettuce salad with the yummy dressing is not what we call deep nutrition.

Our solution is the very famous drink that has helped many people get a needed nutritional boost. Have it as part of your breakfast or afternoon pick me up, it is even a fantastic meal replacement.

A Deep Nutritional Booster Photo
 

The deep nutritional base of the drink: 1 tablespoon of Beta Glucan, 1 tablespoon of Be Regular, and 1 teaspoon of No 7 Systemic Booster. Put in a blender.

This combination has it all: greens, veggies, fruits, berries, seeds, grains, essential nutraceuticals (B12, Folate, Fructo Borate, Vitamin D, and Chromium), 10 probiotics (with Supernatant and ORNs for more immune boosting qualities), and plenty of fiber. The list of ingredients is impressive!

Liquids: 1. Juice – apple, pineapple, prune, watermelon juice, sweet green juices with apple, carrots, and beets, or any berry juice: 1/3 cup of juice & 2/3 cup water (if you need more liquids add a little of both). 2. Coconut water: dilute half/half with water. 3. Nut milks, oat milk, soy, or hemp, (half/half) or use the whole plant-milk. 4. Just water.

Optional: Choose a couple of things to add to your drink. Balance the liquids with items that make the drink thick!

Fruits: 1/2- to Banana, ½ -to 1 cup of frozen or fresh berries, and any fruit you would like (fresh or frozen, e.g., pineapple, melons, mango, peaches, nectarines).  You can add one date (take the pit out) for extra minerals and iron

Greens: a few leaves of spinach

1 tablespoon of Flax Seeds.

1 heaping teaspoon of Bee Pollen – if you are not allergic to bees or honey. Keep in the freezer for freshness. Bee pollen contains a host of nutrients such as antioxidant, protein, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and coenzymes, and more.

Nut butter: A teaspoon of almond butter, peanut butter, cashew butter – add more protein and fiber to the drink.

Play with different combinations to find just the right mixture of things and enjoy this deeply nourishing boost to your health.

Dear Doctor

Let’s face it, we are not eating enough fiber. Recent published reviews continue to highlight the connection between eating enough fiber, especially from plants, to lower cholesterol and improve heart health.

Statins are prescribed to lower cholesterol, however, there are side-effects that are not tolerable.

Two review from the USA and the UK summarize our need to increase fiber, especially the kind that lowers cholesterol, like beta glucan.

In the USA, Dr. Ghada Soliman, an associate professor of Nutrition in the Department of Environmental, Occupational and Geospatial Health Sciences, concludes her review of the literature that higher intake of fiber can in fact lower the need for statins. Some people may need statins but in much lower dosage.

Here are other fiber functions in the article by Ghada A. Soliman:

Dietary fiber has several protective effects against chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, inflammatory bowel syndrome, diverticular disease, obesity, and colorectal cancer in the age-adjusted analysis [77,78,79,80,81,82,83,84]. For example, insoluble fiber binds to and adsorbs carcinogens, mutagens, and toxins, and therefore, prevents their harmful effects to the body, by preventing the toxins absorption and targeting them for elimination [83,85,86]. Other fiber properties include delayed colonic transit time, prolonged post-meal satiety and satiation, and induction of cholecystokinin satiety hormone [87,88]. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics position on fiber intake is to increase consumption of whole grains, fruits and vegetables, nuts and legumes, and that dietary fiber is associated with risk reduction of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and select cancer types [89].

In the UK, Dr Charlotte Elizabeth Evans, an associate professor in nutritional epidemiology and public health nutrition, speaks highly of high fiber intake and the positive association between fiber and health benefits such as cardio-vascular health (2019).

Dietary fibre and cardiovascular health: a review of current evidence and policy

Charlotte Elizabeth Louise Evans:

Dietary fibre comprises many different, mainly plant-based, compounds that are not fully digested in the human gut. Insoluble fibres include cellulose, hemi-celluloses and lignin and soluble fibres include pectins, β-glucan and hydro-colloids. In the UK, the daily recommended amount has increased to 30 g but only 13 % of men and 4 % of women meet this recommendation. Currently the mean intake for adults is 21 g for men and 17 g for women. There is a wealth of epidemiological evidence based on systematic reviews of trials and cohorts to support the higher fibre recommendation. This includes evidence of reductions in the risk for CVD (both heart disease and stroke) and lower risk of type 2 diabetes, lower blood pressure, lower LDL-cholesterol, as well as some cancers. Beneficial effects of fibre operate via a diverse range of mechanisms throughout the digestive system including the mouth, stomach and small and large intestine; some of which are still not completely understood. The updated recommendation for fibre is a long way from a typical British diet and requires several daily portions of fruit and vegetables and wholegrain foods. Improving dietary fibre intakes will require a variety of actions and policies from stakeholders; however, there is currently more of a focus on reducing sugar than increasing fibre. In order to increase the number of adults meeting the fibre recommendation, social marketing and labeling of high-fibre foods are warranted as well as reformulation and wider availability of wholegrain versions of popular foods.
