Blueberry Extract

Healthy Cognition

June 8, 2020

Dear Doctor

An estimate of 16 million people live with some form of cognitive impairment while 5.1 million have Alzheimer’s disease (CDC, 2014; 2011).

How do we protect our brain from dementia? And is it possible to reverse an aging and forgetful brain?

Barbara Shukit-Hale’s (2012) research, Blueberries and neuronal aging, clearly demonstrates the power of blueberry and particularly blueberry extract in protecting and even reversing cognitive decline.

Scientific research indicates that a cup or two of blueberry every day will improve cognitive performance, improve athletic abilities (balance, strength, and endurance), and even elevate our mood (Miller et al., 2018; Schrager et al., 2015; Khalid et al., 2017).  Research also emphasizes quantity: one cup of blueberries a day is good but 2 cups a day may be even better (Miller & Shukitt-Hale,  2012).  These health improvements are not just limited to the elderly but to all ages — even children greatly benefit (Whyte, 2016; Khalid, 2017).

BX FBlueberry Extract:  Brain and Nerve Regeneration

The BioImmersion Blueberry Extract is a serious product.  The cognitive, mood enhancing, and athletic benefits emanate from the blueberry pigment is extracted from the North American blueberry.  Each capsule contains 500mg of extract, equivalent to one and a quarter cups of blueberries.  In fact, it takes 80 lbs. of blueberries to get 1 lb. of our extract!

Suggested Use:  1-2 capsules twice daily for two weeks to start an intensive program, and 1 capsule a day as a maintenance.

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

We need to eat and supplement with more blueberries. Why? Because blueberry and blueberry extract in particular can protect us from cognitive decline and help reverse the effects of senescence (when cells lose the ability to reproduce).

Scientific research indicates that a cup (or two) of blueberry every day will improve cognitive performance, improve our athletic abilities (balance, strength, and endurance), and even elevate our mood (Miller et al., 2018; Schrager et al., 2015; Khalid et al., 2017).  Research also emphasizes that the quantity of blueberries matter: one cup a day is good but 2 cups a day may be even better (Miller & Shukitt-Hale,  2012).  And children can greatly benefit too (Whyte, 2016; Khalid, 2017).

The BioImmersion Blueberry Extract is a serious product.  The cognitive, mood enhancing, and athletic benefits all emanate from the blueberry pigment. That is  exactly what we extract from the North American blueberry.  Each capsule contains 500mg of this precious extract, equivalent to one and a quarter cups of blueberries.  In fact,  it takes 80 lbs. of blueberries to get 1 lb. of this extract!

Recommended dose:  1-2 capsules daily.

Dear Doctor

Cognitive decline is a serious issue. And estimate of 16 million people live with cognitive impairment.  Over 5.1 million Americans live with Alzheimer’s disease (CDC, 2014; 2011). In 2019, Marcum et al.’s survey found that most people are aware of the risks associated with getting dementia but do not know what to do.

James Joseph and Shukitt-Hale have studied blueberries and brain health for many years (e.g., 2010). Their research studies have confirmed that a daily supplementation of blueberries reverse age-related deficits in different groups of aged rats (2019). Both Travica et al. (2019) and Dodd et al. (2019) found blueberry supplementation in adults and children improve cognition performance, and in particular, improve short – and long-term memory.

Wilhelmina Kalt has also led many research teams to study the power of blueberries (e.g., 2013). In a recent article, her team (2019) reviewed current research on the health benefits of blueberries and concluded that it is widely agreed that regular consumption of blueberries can be unconditionally recommended.

Blueberries contain large amounts of phytochemicals, and in particular, blueberries are abundant with anthocyanin pigments, which according to Kalt et al. (2019) makes the greatest impact on brain health.

Our Blueberry Extract is highly concentrated: 80 kilos make 1 kilo of extract – a powerhouse of anthocyanins for brain health. Furthermore, the Blueberry Extract is pure: 100% free of any fillers, excipients or flowing agents.

1-2 capsules twice daily for two weeks to start an intensive program, and 1 capsule a day as a maintenance.

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:

 

No. 7 Systemic Booster- The New Longevity:  take one tsp daily

No.7 F

No. 7 Systemic Booster

 

Phyto Power- DNA & Cellular Health:  Take two capsules daily

The Relevant Gift

December 18, 2019

Dear Friends

Giving a relevant gift touches the heart deeply and connects us to each other. A gift that says I understand what is going on with you, and what is important to you is very special.

Finding a relevant gift is not easy.  Especially when a person needs to improve their diet or lifestyle habits. In fact, any topic that deals with the health of our body, mind, and soul is a private matter, and we do not want to intrude or push our own values (and products) on our family and friends.

But health is relevant. Joy is hard to come by when we suffer with ill-health. We suggest making health a fun and bonding experience by giving family and friends fabulous supplements they will love.

The Relevant Gift Photo 

Start with the easiest and most fundamental gift: The No 7 Systemic Booster: The New Longevity. The name says it all – a gift that strengthens many systems in our body and has the correct nutritional strategy to bolster longevity. And the new batch tastes so so good! It is sweet and melts in your mouth. A teaspoon in a little water will make everyone smile!

No.7 F

And who does not need a little pick-me-up gift of health? Energy is made up of 72 plant-based ultra-minerals with apple extract. A mix that is used successfully by professional athletes for longer and less painful exercise routines. We certainly can use that during on Christmas Day and for sure in January when the holiday buzz fades away.

Our brain is at the center of our universe, and as we age, it is harder to keep it all together. Two of our products have potent blueberries, shown in research to actually help the brain regenerate! The Phyto Power and the Blueberry Extract. Choose one or the other – and give to your elder friends or family, or a younger student working hard to get through university. And even us regular working folk need a brain support, something to brighten the thinking pathways of our brain.
