Inflammatory Support

Dear Friends

Are you suffering with a chronic illness?  More people are, and the numbers are rising!

In the United States, 85% of people who are over 65 years of age suffer from one or two chronic illnesses, and nearly a quarter of children that are under 17 years old suffer one or more chronic conditions, with almost half of young to mature adults (18 to 64 years old) having one or more chronic illnesses (Bardell, 2018, Living Well, Dying Well, p. 120). That means that about a half of our population is constantly dealing with chronic conditions.

Based on the new longevity research we are able to go after macro and micro inflammation, the root causes of chronic disease, by turning on the body’s own rebuilding and repair mechanism (World Health Organization).

BioImmersion’s No. 7 Systemic Booster: The New Longevity brings the nutrients into our body that goes after the root causes of chronic disease and also turn on our body’s repair and rebuilding mechanism.

Calder et al. (2017) in the  research entitled, Health relevance of the modification of low grade inflammation in ageing (inflammageing) and the role of nutrition, showed that ageing is characterized by an increase in the concentration of inflammatory markers in the bloodstream.  This chronic inflammation (LGI) is associated with age-related decline of many functional systems.  Slowing, controlling or reversing LGI is a way to prevent age-related functional decline.  Specific and strategic dietary intervention provides a successful way to prevent age-related functional decline.

Dear Friends

Noticed a few extra pounds around your mid-section?  Being overweight, especially around the abdomen is a primary risk factor for prediabetes. 86 million Americans have this condition. What’s more, 90% of people with prediabetes don’t even know they have it.

The more fatty tissue you have the more resistance your cells become to insulin.  Prediabetes leads to developing diabetes.  Diabetes negatively impacts our immune system, and is an added risk for catching the coronavirus.  In China, people with diabetes showed a 2-fold increase in risk of severe COVID-19 requiring intensive care unit admission (Li et al., 2020).  In North America and Europe diabetes rates are between 6.3% and 11.1% and prediabetes affects 23% to 33% of adults (IDF, 2019). This means that pandemics induce even greater suffering by taking advantages of the population’s increased susceptibility to complication.

Therefore, it makes great sense to aggressively take measure to reduce mid abdomen weight and take the load off of our pancreas.

Weight-Less goes after that excess weight accumulating on the gut.

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

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).

Dear Friends

Prostate cancer accounts for approximately 28% of newly diagnosed cancers in the USA and is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in men in the Western world. The American Cancer Society’s estimates about 191,930 new cases of prostate cancer and around 33,330 deaths from prostate cancer in 2020.

A promising agent that reduces prostate cancer incidence and progression is sulforaphane- a sulfur-rich compound found in great amounts in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli sprouts.  Sulforaphane has the ability to attack cancer in many different ways. Livingston et al. (2019) describes Sulforaphane’s ability to induce antioxidant pathways, death (apoptosis) of cancer cells, inhibition of inflammation and angiogenesis and detoxification of carcinogens. Sulforaphane is a hard working nutrient in the body.

Glucosinolates & Sulforaphanes  provides 60 capsules (500mg per capsule) of organic broccoli sprout powder full of sulforaphane potential.  Brocolli sprouts harvested on the third day of growth are the richest nature source for sulforaphanes.  On the label, BioImmersion guarantees  a glucosinolate level of 15,000 ppm, a glucoraphanin level of 10,000 ppm and a sulforaphane potential of 4,000 ppm.  As you can see on our Certificate of Analysis below, we have twice as much potency in each capsule!

Dear Friends

We have discussed the use of Garlic as an antimicrobial support for IBS and SIBO.

IBS sufferers also require a calming effect.

Probiotic and polyphenols have shown in research to offer relief from pain by reducing the irritating and pathogenic organisms of the microbiota (the community of the different organisms living in the GI Tract) with friendly and calming bacteria.  Probiotics simply competes with irritating or pathogenic bacteria and lowers their numbers. The immune system along with the nervous system relax as inflammation is lowered and with that pain is reduced. These friendly probiotic bacteria are hard workers! See the research below.

Select one or two of the top three calming and reparative Therapeutic Food Synbiotics:

Siebecker and Sandberg-Lewis, co-founders of the SIBO Center for Digestive Health at The National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM), state in their paper, Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth: Often-Ignored cause of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, that they have used various multistrain and single probiotics as well as yogurt and cultured vegetables with their SIBO patients with good results (2013).  They consider avoiding prebiotics such as FOS, inulin and GOS as the main ingredient.  However, they also state that these prebiotics may be tolerated in small amounts used as base ingredients.

Soifer and associates pilot study (2010) compared the short-term clinical efficacy of the drug metronidazole vs. a probiotic with people who have SIBO and functional chronic abdominal distension. The study population consisted of 50 patients with chronic abdominal distension (Rome III criteria) and diagnosis of SIBO made by a lactulose H2 breath test.

The participants were divided into 2 groups, 25 in the metronidazole group and 25 in the probiotic group.  The probiotic group received a blend of L. casei, L. plantarum, S. faecalis and B. brevis.  Both groups went on the same diet, which consisted in reduced consumption of alcohol, legumes, dairy products and leafy green vegetables.

The results showed that thirteen (52%) subjects receiving metronidazole and twenty (82%) receiving the probiotic showed clinical improvement after the treatment.  All the study patients completed treatment.  No adverse events leading to treament discontinuation were observed.

Their conclusion was that the probiotics used had a higher efficacy that metronidazol and may prove successful in treating SIBO.

Dear Friends

Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) is considered to be part of the larger condition of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

IBS is known as a chronic, episodic, functional gastrointestinal disorder, characterized by abdominal pain/discomfort and altered bowel habit (constipation, diarrhea or alternating periods of both). It is estimated to affect 10-15% of Western populations, one in seven Americans suffer with this condition (Hungin, 2005).

320 subjects enrolled who were diagnosed with IBS according to the Rome II criteria.  SIBO was found in 37.5% of IBS sufferers.  Escherichia coli, Enterococcus spp and Klebsiella pneumoniae were the most common isolates found in patients with SIBO (Joankers, 1999).

Pylorus et al. (2012) found that the pathogenic Escherichia coli, Enteroccus spp. and Klebsiella were the most common isolate found in SIBO patients.  Very dangerous and potentially deadly pathogens—especially VRE (Vancomycin Resistant Enteroccoci).  And, researchers have found that garlic inhibits the growth of all three (Lawson, 2010).

Garlic is an amazing broad-spectrum antimicrobial.  Its magic bullets are in its secondary metabolites—its thiosulphanates of which allicin comprises about 70 to 80% and is the most potent (Block, 2010).
