Dear Friends

Osteoporosis on the Rise: What’s missing?

10 million Americans have osteoporosis; and the numbers are predicted to reach 14 million by 2020 (Burge, 2007).

What is missing in our diets and supplementation to have such an increase in the number of people suffering with osteoporosis?

Many studies show that it is our lack of adequate intake of polyphenols from fruits and vegetables, green teas, and some seeds. Berry polyphenols are found to reduce the risk of age related bone loss.

In fact, Hubert et al. (2014) find a positive association of high berry intake and higher bone mass. The researchers recommend the addition of berries to supplement our daily diet.

Their meta-analysis study, Dietary Polyphenols, Berries, and Age Related Bone Loss: A Review Based on Human, Animal and Cell Studies, evaluated human and animal studies and found strong associations between polyphenol intake, reduced fracture risk, increased bone formation markers, and increased BMD (Hubert et al., 2014). For similar studies, see also Welsh, 2012; Hardcastel, 2011; Hooshmand, 2011; Langsetmo, 2011; Arjmandi, 2010; Burge, 2007; Garrett, 1990.

A protocol for added phenols and boron:

Food Science

Strengthen your phenol dietary intake with our High ORAC Synbiotic Formula. The High ORAC includes a collection of berries and fruits with their extracts. High ORAC contains two strong probiotic organisms which in research are shown to tighten the cell junctions in the gut, reducing gut generated chronic inflammation (Ulluwishewa et al., 2011). Chronic inflammation is shown to cause an increase in osteoclast activity resulting in the de-mineralization of the bone (Weitzmann, 2013; Garrett et al., 1990).

Add Fructo Borate Complex to the phenolic and probiotic rich High ORAC to create a highly effective protocol. The Fructo Borate contains carbohydrate bound boron as found in nature. It is highly absorbable and instrumental in enhanving the re-mineralization of the bone (Miljkovic et al., 2004).

Dear Friends,

“After the age of 50 years, a woman’s risk of dying from a hip fracture is equal to her lifetime risk of dying from breast cancer” (Devirian T., & Volpe S., 2003).

Osteoporosis and Osteoarthritis are of major concern for our aging as well as young population (Newnham RE.,1994; Devirian T., Volpe S., 2003). Osteoarthiritis results from lack of sufficient Boron in our diets (Devirian T., Volpe S., 2003; Helliwell et al., 1996).

Fructo Borate Complex and its natural bioavailable boron supports bone strength and joint integrity (Miljkovic et al., 2009; Scorei et al. (2011).

Boron is found to be a missing mineral in our daily nutrition as industrialized farming has depleted boron from our soil. Fructo Borate Complex is a complex of calcium, natural fructose, and boron; exactly as it is found in fresh and dried fruits, vegetables, herbs and wine (Miljkovic et al., 2009; Price et al., 2012).  This form of boron is not only safe but also bioavailable compared with most commercial forms of boron (Scorei et al., 2011).

1-2 capsules of the Fructo Borate Complex  provides 6-12 mg, which is the researched amount of boron to support healthy strong bone (between 3-10 mg). It also has the ability to reduce inflammation and pain in arthritic joints (Scorei et al., 2011).

Clinical Notes

Osteoarthritis:

Fructo Borate provides 6mg of elemental boron per capsule.  Each boron ion is bound to two fructose molecules.  All food derived boron molecules are bound to carbohydrates.

Take 1 to 2 capsules twice daily depending on the severity of the arthritis.

Osteoporosis:

Surgeons have observed that the bones of patients using boron supplements are much harder to cut than those of patients who had not used boron supplements.  Approximately half the population in the US consumes less than 1mg of boron per day.  Supplementation with 3 mg of boron per day for post menopausal women has demonstrated improved calcium and magnesium retention by the kidneys.

Dear Friends

Osteoarthritis is a disease condition associated with the aging process; an inability tophytopower-04 copy final 2 successfully manage inflammation in our body. And it is on the rise worldwide (see Nguyen et. al., 2011).

Utilize the Phyto Power for its three varities of wildcrafted Potent Alaskan Rosehip to support the reduction of pain, swelling, and inflammation. See the Therapeutic Foods protocol in Clinical notes below!

Research by Winther et al. (2005) studied 94 patients with osteoarthritis of the hip or knee to ascertain the effectiveness of rosehip (Rosa canina or dog rose). They conclude rosehip helps to reduce pain, swelling and suffering; alleviate symptoms of osteoarthritis and reduce the consumption of rescue medication.  The dosing was 5 capsules (500 mg per capsule) BID for 3 months. (note that dog rose is not a strong rosehip, hence the large dosage).

Cohen M. (2012) conducted a meta-analysis of three randomized controlled trials involving 287 osteoarthritic patients with a median treatment period of 3 months with a standardized rosehip powder.

Green Facts:

Globe_Home 3The Institute of Public and Environmental Affairs is a registered NGO created by Ma Jun a Chinese environmentalist who was named as one of the 100 most influential persons in the world by Time magazine in May of 2006.  IPE is promoting widespread public participation in environmental governance.

We have added a new topic to our ongoing conversation about good health. Historically, macronutrients, vitamins, minerals, fish oil and fiber have been the center of nutritional advice (McDowell, 2013). But to enhance our diets maximally toward good health we must understand how to utilize phytochemicals (or phytonutrients) from plants. There is a tremendous growing body of research on phytochemicals use for therapeutic purposes.

What we used to call Vitamin P (flavonoids), Vitamin U (glucosinolates and indoles) and Vitamin Q (ubiquinone) were dethroned from vitamin status because specific deficiency symptoms could not be established; and they were simply called phyto-chemicals and classified as secondary metabolites.  What is the definition of a secondary metabolite?

Secondary metabolites are organic compounds that are not directly involved in normal growth, development or reproduction of an organism.  Unlike primary metabolites, absence of secondary metabolites does not result in immediate death, but rather long-term impairment of the organism’s survivability and fecundity. (Fraenkel GS. May 1959. The raison d’Etre of secondary plant substances. Science 129 (3361): 1466-1470)

Long-term impairment of an organism’s survivability sound frighteningly like the very conditions experienced by the increasing millions of people engulfed  in the pandemic of the chronic degenerative disease—CDV, diabetes, cancer, IBD and Alzheimer’s—just to name a few.   It is now understood and acknowledged that the diminished intake of alive colorful foods, fresh fruits and vegetables which are loaded with a diverse array of phytochemicals, could be the cause. Too often, our body is quite simply not fully nourished with plant based nutrients to defend itself against chronic illness (see NutritionFacts.ORG for more information).

Why has the USDA recommended the 5-to-10 servings-a-day of Fruits and Vegetables for all Americans?  Our plate, claim the USDA, should be half filled with vegetables and fruit at each meal.  The scientific evidence now demonstrates that a healthy diet of live foods gives the body what it needs to heal, repair and defend itself.  Health in large part is a matter of feeding the body a diversity of fresh high active foods with rich nutrient density. Your mission then is to help your body with a healthy and diverse plant based diet to fortify your body with nutrients for healthy functioning (for more news on recent research read The Guardian)

Most Americans Eat Much Less than Recommended Amounts of Fruits and Vegetables, Guenther et al. Sept. 2006, J. Amer. Dietetic Assoc. Vol. 106, Issue 9 Pg. 1371-1379.

“Americans need to consume more fruits and vegetables, especially dark green and orange vegetables and legumes.  Nutritionists must help consumers realize that, for everyone older than age 3 years, the new recommendations for fruit and vegetable intakes are greater than the familiar five serving a day.”

It’s not only the baby boomers who are looking in the mirror and thinking wow, I’ve got to slow down this aging process to look and feel better.  People at younger and younger ages are experiencing the debilitating diseases of aging, including those that impair neurological functioning.

Research by L Rossi et al., in their peer-reviewed paper, Benefits from Dietary Polyphenols for Brain Aging and Alzheimer’s Disease, Neurochem Res 2008, Vol. 33 Issue 12, Pg. 2390-2400, add to the mounting body of scientific evidence the awareness that “diets rich in polyphenols are preventative and can even reverse the aging process.”

The researchers summarized the characteristics of the most studied food polyphenols that were shown to have potential anti-aging and brain protective activities.  Foods that due to their polyphenol content were able to scavenge free radicals, chelate redox metals, down regulate inflammatory activities, and of concern to baby boomers, have components that are able to cross the blood-brain barrier and protect for healthy cognitive functioning of the brain.  Rossi et al.’s bottom line is to eat a wide variety of polyphenol rich foods daily.

According to food researchers Elizabeth Devore ScD, Jae Hee Kang ScD, Monique Breteler MD/PhD, and Francine Grodstin ScD (2012), greater intakes of blueberries and strawberries were associated with slower rates of cognitive decline.  Additionally, in further supporting evidence, greater intakes of anthocyanidins and total flavonoids were associated with slower rates of cognitive decline.  This is good news for all of us IF we incorporate this ever-growing body of knowledge seriously into our dietary habits. Devore et al. summary statement couldn’t be clearer:  Higher intake of flavonoids, particularly form berries, appears to reduce rates of cognitive decline in older adults. (Devore EE, Kange JH et al, Dietary Intakes of berries and flavonoids in relation to cognitive decline. Annals of Neurology, Vol. 72, Issue 1, Pg. 135-143, July 2012.)

Clinical Notes:

Speaking of protecting the supporting the cognitive functioning of our brains, our wonderful Blueberry Extract will be back in 2 to 3 weeks.  And, not only that but over the next 2 months we are bringing in 8 to 12 new products, most of which are formulas that we have been diligently researching for two years.  We are very excited about this.  Stay tuned.

As to the above discussion on secondary metabolites that this is the whole point of the Therapeutic Food Supplements.  To enable you to give your body what it needs in the way the phytonutrients to support its healthy functioning.

Dear Friends

With great pleasure and joy we introduce BioImmersion’s medical director – George J Kessler, DO. His 2000 book, The Bone Density Diet: 6 weeks to a strong body and mind, has received great reviews.

In this newsletter,  Dr. Kessler writes about the Fructo Borate Complex as he has used it successfully in his practice for over nine years. Make sure to read Clincal Notes for Dr. Kessler’s suggested use of Fructo Borate.

Dr. George Kessler on boron and Fructo Borate:

Boron is a mineral that plants access from the soil.  It is contained in the cell membranes of every plant.  If the soil is of poor quality the plants grown in it will lack boron.  The Journal of the American College of Nutirition (Feb 2014) looked at dietary vitamin and mineral consumption in the United States from 2007 to 2010 and found large parts of the population did not get adequate levels of these nutrients from the foods they ate.  They recommended taking supplements to make up for these common deficiencies.

Boron in a natural food form such as fructoborate can be much more potent and much less toxic than synthetically manufactured boron supplements.  Boron from food sources can also be much more bioavailable than synthetic sources.

Although boron is considered a trace mineral, it has many important and necessary functions in the human body.  To paraphrase a July 5, 2014 article published in The Journal of Trace Element Medical Biology:

In human studies, boron is a bioactive element that beneficially affects bone growth and central nervous system function, alleviates arthritic symptoms, facilitates hormone action and is associated with a reduced risk of some types of cancer. In the medical book Breast Cancer- Current and Alternative Therapeutic Modalities (2011, chapter 5, 2.1 it is stated “A diet with low boron has been found to lead to a number of general health problems and to increase cancer risk. The most common symptoms of boron deficiency include arthritis, memory loss, osteoporosis, degenerative and soft tissue cartilage diseases, hormonal disequilibria and a drop in libido.

The chapter goes on to detail the information to support this quote. Keeping in mind the various and intertwined effects boron has on the entire human body, I will try to isolate some of the individual areas that boron is important in.

Bone Metabolism:

One of the most researched uses for boron is in its relationship to bone metabolism, how it affects calcium, magnesium, vitamin D metabolism and bone formation and loss.  It has been shown that boron has very important and useful effects on bone health and development.  The National Osteoporosis Foundation states that, “Millions of Americans—54 million to be exact—have low bone density or osteoporosis.  In fact, about one in two women and up to one in four men over the age of 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis.”

While osteoporosis is a disease influenced by many factors, mineral composition of the bone is of utmost importance.  Boron helps both the uptake of calicum and magnesium into the bones and decreases the excretion of both through the kidney.  This is very helpful in both the treatment and prevention of kidney stones and in lowering parathyroid hormone levels in some patients.

Boron also decreases subacute inflammation, which is a factor in bone loss.  In Dec. 2013 The Biological Trace Element Research Journal printed an article stating that in human studies, boron protects the bones against inflammation disruption of the equilibrium between bone reabsorption and bone deposition.

This same journal printed an article in July 2001 showing that boron added to estrogen “significantly increased serum Ca, P, Mg and osteocalcin concentrations” resulting in increased bone growth.  Deficiencies of trace elements slows down the increase of childhood/adolescent bone mass and accelerates bone loss after menopause or in old age” Clinical Chemistry Laboratory Medicine Aug. 2013.

Osteoarthritis:

The American Journal of Biomedical Sciences Oct. 2011 published an article showing that plant based boron could, in 14 days, decrease the symptoms of osteoarthritis of the knee.  The article further found that taking boron also resulted in increased levels 1,25(OH)vitamin D.  Clinical intervention in Aug 2014 published an article that found the same relief of osteoarthritis symptoms in 14 days as found in the previous study.

Antioxidant:

Experimental and Toxicologic Pathology Jan 2012 found that boron played a protective role in lowering the genotoxic effects of heavy metals by its antioxidant capacity. Biological trace element Research April 2014 found that levels of boron in the 40 mg/L range could increase weight, organ indexes, and antioxidant capacities of spleen and improve the speen tissue structure.  There is a toxicity level of boron at over 640 mg/L.

Hormone Balancing:

Toxicology Ind. Health Jan. 2013 found boron decreased body weight, leptin, insulin and glucose levels and increased T3 (the thyroid hormone your cells actually use) and carnitine levels in plasma.

Biological Trace Element Reserch April 2013 published an article showing that “there was a significant relationship between age and qualitative values of body mass index for each subject.” This shows that there is a “reverse relationship between blood boron levels and body mass index in humans”.  This means that low boron levels are associated with increased weight and that high levels are associated with lower body weights.

The Indian Journal of Experimental Biology (March 2012) stated that the consumption of fatty acids, calcium, Vitamin D, and boron with physical activity increased levels of estradiol, testosterone and free testosterone. They also caused a strengthening and higher breaking point of bones.

The journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology (Jan. 2011) stated that Boron possesses widespread properties in biochemistry and nutrition.  It further found that boron had significant biological effects on steroid hormones andinflammatory markers. Signficant decreases in sex hormone binding globulins, CRP, CRP-HS and TNF alpha levels.  Also found were increased levels of plasma free testosterone, dihydrotestosterone, cortisol and Vitamin D along with decreased levels of Estradiol. What this means is that not only can boron help to balance your hormones but can improve the cross talk between your various endocrine glands.

Dyslipidemia:

Oral resveritrol and boron supplementation showed a significant decrease in C-reactive protein, N-terminal prohormone of brain natriuretic peptide and an improvement in the quality of life of individuals in the study (Nutrition July 2012).

The Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology (April 2011) published an article showing that “added boron and copper had a significant effect on plasma high density lipoprotein  cholesterol fraction.”  And went on to state that “plasma lipid contents were also decreased by addition of copper and boron in the ration.”  What this means is that boron can affect blood cholesterol levels in good ways.

This was further found in the Journal of Diabetes (Mar. 2014) which stated that boron containing compounds could result in decreased hepatic and blood levels of lipids and that this may represent a novel approach for threating diseases with aberrant lipid homeostasis.

Anti Cancer Research:

Journal of Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine (Oct 2011) found that boron could reduce cancer risk and had beneficial effects on oxidative stress, central nervous system function, hormone facilitation, immune response, arthritis, bone growth and inflammation.

Anti-Cancer Agents in Medicinal Chemistry (May 2010) found that consumption of “boron containing compounds resulted in significant decrease in the risk for prostate and cervical cancer, and decrease in lung cancer in smoking women.”  They also showed promising chemotherapeutic effects for specific forms of cancer.

Much more can be said about boron, i.e. its ability to down regulate the immun system, its antiaging effects, its lowering of CRP, but enough said for now.

George Kessler, DO

 

Clinical Notes:

To health practitioners:

Assuming that you are doing before and after tests, a typical dosage pattern would be to begin with one capsule of Fructo Borate Complex with breakfast and one with lunch for about 2 to 4 months.  After this trial period re-evaluate the lab tests, symptoms, etc to see the change in the parameters that you are following—bone formation and loss, pain, cholesterol levels, urinary excretion of calcium and/or magnesium, parathyroid hormoes, sex and stress and hormones etc. then adjust the dose accordingly.

 

The Last Quiz Answer:

This wild life photographer is getting a little love from a truly wild hyena who he has been filming for many months.

Hyenas are skilled hunters that will take down wildebeest or antelope.  They also kill and eat birds, lizards, snakes and insects.  They’ve got big bugs in Africa.  You can make a meal on the darn things.

 

 

Elephants may be extinct in the next 6 years if the current poaching rates continue. And, why all this poaching? For ivory bracelets, hair pins, pendants, chopsticks, trinkets and more. 35,000 were killed in 2013. Thirty Five Thousand. We are something else!
