Anderson et al.  (2011) demonstrated the powerful anti-obesity effects of rose hip in their research entitled, Rose hip exerts antidiabetic effects via a mechanism involving downregulation of the hepatic lipogenic program.

Two different parts of the 2011 research provided a window into rose hip’s weight lowering power.

In Study A, labeled the preventative study, 20 mice were divided into two groups, the control group and the rose hip fed group. Both groups were fed the high-fat diet during the 20 week trial but  the rose hip group showed a markedly lower body weight gain compared to the control group: 7.1 grams vs. 17.1 grams.

In Study B, labeled the intervention study, 10 mice were divided into two groups, the control group and the rose hip fed group. Both groups were fed the same low-fat diet during their 10 week trial but the control group kept gaining body weight while the rose hip group immediately started to lose weight. By at the end of the study, the difference in the body weight of the two groups was pronounced with the rose hip group average weight being 28.6 grams and the control being 38.5 grams.


Rose Hip Obesity Graph

Anderson et al. (2011) summarized that high doses of rose hip are capable of both preventing and reversing the increase in body weight.  Another dramatic beneficial aspect of rose hip supplementation:  Hepatic lipids were reduced by >50%  following the rose hip intake as a result of down-regulation of the hepatic lipogenic program. The researchers theorized that this may represent a major mechanism underlying the improvement in insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance.  Finally, they concluded that their results show great promise for the use of more moderate doses of rose hip to improve glucose tolerance and lower body weight in humans.

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).

Be Regular is back

June 12, 2019

Dear Doctor

We are excited for our Be Regular is back in.  Thank you so much for your patience.  We all have missed it!!!

For those of you new to this product, the Be Regular is a gluten free, global blend of indigenous organic seeds, originating in ancient cultures from all around the world. The five organic seeds provide gentle yet effective fiber for everyday regularity.*

One scoop of Be Regular offers over 7 grams of fiber towards your 25 to 35 grams a day.*  It is organic, vegan, kosher, non GMO, and gluten free.

Therapeutic Food Support:

Be Regular is comprised of organic whole seeds: Amaranth, Quinoa, Buckwheat, Chia and Millet (which some think of as also a grain). The Aztec people developed amaranth; the Incas raised Quinoa, while buckwheat was native in Asia, parts of Europe and the USA. Chia is a revered seed that is native to central and southern Mexico and Guatemala. Millets are a group of indigenous small-seeded grasses, especially known in Africa and Asia but are cultivated and enjoyed all over the world.

Adding a tablespoon or two of Be Regular to your morning shakes, cereals, baked goods, and even soups adds dietary fiber and nutrients for daily regular bowel movements (American Dietetic Association, 2008; Seal & Brownlee, 2015), and contributes positively to a host of health benefits such as cardiovascular health, reduction of fatty liver (van Gijssel et al., 2016; Georgoulis et al., 2014; Grooms et al., 2013, respectively), lasting energy, weight management and much more (de Vries et al., 2016; Albertson et al., 2016; Lambeau et al., 2017).*

Dear Friends

Doctors and their patients are discovering the addictive taste of the No 7 Systemic Booster. The quality of this rich bitter chocolate taste comes alive with any juice: apple, orange, pineapple, any berry, and even carrot or beet. Taking the No 7 in just water produces a very dark, bitter, chocolate drink (although there is not chocolate in this mix!). But a little diluted juice, and the chocolate taste comes alive.

The No 7 Booster is a serious, uncompromisingly healthy drink. There are no sweeteners, fillers, or natural flavors to muck up the real power of the blend. Typically, artificial, natural, or even organic flavors have from 100-500 different components that are not required to be listed on the label. The No 7 is as pure as it is powerful.

The No 7 has our famous probiotic mix with its Supernatant and ORNs. For those of you who are waiting to have the LactORN back – we have the ORNs (known in the scientific literature as microRNAs) now in the No 7, High ORAC, Cranberry Pomegranate, and the Beta Glucan.  We have decided to pull the incredible immune boosting abilities of the microRNAs into our formulas.

Life is getting more polluted, and chronic illnesses more difficult to treat. The No 7 is an effective tool with high actives and polyphenols from purposely selected veggies, greens, fruits, berries, extracts, nutriceuticals, and our super probiotic mix.

To your health,

Seann
