Dear Friends

The common cold is one of the world’s most famous viral infection that gets us all down several times a year. Can garlic supplementation help to prevent or alleviate this misery?

In Medicinal Plants of the South, Saif et al. (2019) places garlic as the 20th most important vegetable in the world. Garlic contains pharmacological activities such as the antimicrobial, allicin, the component that goes after viruses, bacteria and fungus.

Kovarovič et al. (2019) also consider garlic as one of the most valuable plants in the world, because it contains substances with protective and healing effects for common colds, flus, and coughs. Instead of having the general malaise that keeps us down for 7-10 days, garlic can cut the time down by half (Lissiman et al., 2014).

Garlic has been used for centuries with research showing that it is the unique bioactive compounds with a host of antimicrobial genes that support the body’s ability to fight bacteria, viruses as well as fungus (Abbas et al., 2019).

Dear Friends,

Ischemic Heart Disease is the number one killer in developed countries with high blood pressure as the main risk factor for developing this disease (WHO, 2016).

A straight forward way to lower blood pressure levels is to increase the amount of fresh fruits and vegetables in the diet and reduce the levels red meats, eggs, and dairy.

Yokoyoma et al. (2014) conducted a systemic review and meta-analysis of controlled clinical trials and observational studies that examined the association between vegetarian diets and blood pressure (BP).

All studies met the inclusion criteria of the use of (1) participants older than 20 years, (2) vegetarian diets as an exposure or intervention, (3) mean difference in BP as an outcome, (4) a controlled trial or observational study design.

The main outcome and measures were the net differences in systolic and diastolic BP associated with the consumption of vegetarian diets were assessed.

They examined 258 studies and identified 7 clinical trials and 32 observational studies that met the inclusion criteria.  In the 7 controlled trials (a total of 311 participants, mean age, 44.5 years), consumption of vegetarian diets was associated with a reduction in mean systolic BP —4.7 mm Hg and diastolic BP —2.2 mm Hg compared with the consumption of omnivorous diets.  In the 32 observational studies (a total of 21,504 participants, mean age, 46.6 years), consumption of vegetarian diets was associated with lower mean systolic BP —6.9 HG and diastolic BP —4.7 HG compared with the consumption of omnivorous diets.

The conclusion: Consumption of vegetarian diets is associated with lower Blood Pressure.  Such diets could be a useful nonpharmacologic means for reducing Blood Pressure.

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 with 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 Friends

Chronic Disease is the new norm.  We see it all around us:  obesity, metabolic syndrome, fatty liver, diabetes, CVD, cancer, COPD, asthma, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, autism, IBD, IBS,  auto immune disease, arthritis, UTI, and many more.

Doctors, you are our heroes on the frontline in the battle for your patients’ health, and for helping them to prevent their occurrence in the first place.

Key finding in research for the root cause of these chronic illnesses: a continual low-grade inflammation (LGI), termed by scientists as “inflammageing” (Franceschi & Campisi, 2014).

Therapeutic Food Supplements were designed with powerful plant polyphenols, pedigreed probiotic strains  (with their metabolites and microRNAs), and key nutraceuticals to supports the reduction of LGI.  The results are easily measured:  lowering inflammatory markers.

Summary of the Therapeutic Food Offering:

Polyphenol products:  Garlic (antimicrobial, blood pressure regulation), Blueberry Extract (brain and nerve regeneration), Glucosinolates & Sulforaphanes (liver support), Chlorella (absorption of heavy metals and toxins), Be Regular (fiber from ancient seeds – a must have), and Phyto Power (DNA integrity).

Probiotic Products: Supernatant Synbiotic, and Original Synbiotic. Both powerfully effective for GI health

Probiotic + Polyphenols: High ORAC Synbiotic (post antibiotic therapy), Beta Glucan Synbiotic (Cardiovascular and GI support), No. 7 Systemic Booster (designed to combat the root cause of chronic illnesses), and Cranberry Pomegranate Synbiotic (UTI, and prostate support).

Nutraceuticals:  Fructo Borate Complex (bone and joints), Chromium (blood sugar control), Energy (plant ultra minerals), No. 7 (B12, Folate, chromium, D3, and Fructo Borate), Weight-Less (7 keto).

Nutraceuticals + Polyphenols:  Energy (increase ATP levels), Weight-less (weight loss and blood sugar control), and Chromium with high active Beet Root (blood sugar control, increase circulation), No 7 Systemic Booster.

All of our plant materials are eco-farmed, or wild-crafted, selected for their exceptional high-actives, many of which we standardize.  There are no excipients in our Therapeutic Food Supplement (e.g. flowing agents, sweeteners, natural flavors, emulsifiers, etc.).  We are purists in this regard, wanting to give you absolutely the strongest possible natural product for you restoring health.

Dear Doctor

Cancer is the 2nd leading cause of death globally, and is responsible for an estimated 9.6 million deaths in 2018.  Globally about 1 in 6 deaths is due to cancer.

The most common cause of cancer death are:

  • Lung (1.76 million deaths)
  • Colorectal (862,000 deaths)
  • Stomach (783, 800 deaths)
  • Liver (782,000 deaths)
  • Breast (627,000 deaths)

(World Health Organization, WHO, 2018, Cancer Statistics)

Boivin et al., (2009) evaluated the inhibitory effects of extracts isolated from 34 vegetables on the proliferation of 8 different tumor cell lines: breast cancer, brain tumors, kidney cancer, lung cancer, childhood brain tumors, pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer and stomach cancer.

The best by far were vegetables from the Allium (particularly garlic) and the Cruciferous (particularly broccoli) families—inhibiting these cancers almost 100% in vitro. The researchers concluded, “The inclusion of cruciferous and allium vegetables in the diet is essential for effective dietary based cancer-preventative strategies.”

Kodali and Eslick (2015) conducted a meta-analysis of a total of 8,621 cases and 14,889 controls.  Garlic intake were all associated with reduced risk of gastric cancer.  High intake had the most significant risk reduction.

Helicobacter pylori is a bacterium implicated in the etiology of stomach cancer. The incidence of stomach cancer is lower in individuals and populations with high allium vegetable intakes. Sivam et al. (1997) as part of their study of the role of Allium vegetable intake on cancer prevention, investigated its antimicrobial activity against H. pylori.  An aqueous extract of garlic cloves was standardized for its thiosulfinate concentration and tested for its antimicrobial activity on H. pylori grown on chocolate agar plates.  Minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) was 40 micrograms thiosulifinate per milliter.

The sensitivity of H. pylori’s susceptibility to garlic extract at such low concentration make garlic a good candidate for a low-cost intervention, with few side effects in populations at high risk for stomach cancer, particularly where antibiotic resistance and the risk of reinfection are high.

Reference:

Our Organic Garlic is an exceptionally potent supplement boasting four to five whole cloves of organic garlic in every capsule.  Known as the Russian Penicillin, garlic has been used for centuries therapeutically as a broad-spectrum antimicrobial; and over the last thirty years this has been our focus as well.

Each bottle contains 90 capsules of pure organic garlic with antimicrobial high actives.  This QAI Certified garlic is exceptionally potent at 10,000 ppm alliin.  At 400mg garlic per capsule this translates to 2.65 mg of allicin per capsule.

Our Suggestion:  Take one to two capsules and open them up, pouring the powder into a glass of water.  Stir, allowing the whole garlic clove powder to react with the water.  In about 40 seconds you will have freshly produced allicin, garlic’s premier antimicrobial substance.  Swig it around in your mouth, slowly swallowing.  You are treating the whole mucous membrane of the GI tract with this powerful broad spectrum antimicrobial for a lot of pathogens, including the H. pylori in the stomach. You may add a teaspoon of No7 to the water for more system boosting of probiotics, nutriceuticals, and phyto nutrients.

A MIC is generally regarded as the most basic laboratory measurement of the activity of an antimicrobial agent against an organism.  The lower the MIC the more powerful the antimicrobial.  The MIC of allicin, the post powerful of garlic’s thiosulfinates, against Staph aureus is 27, against E. coli is 27, and against H. pylori 40.  We normally don’t consider a substance as a serious antimicrobial with an MIC of 50 and above.  The reason that garlic does not kill Lactobacillus and Bifido genera is that its MIC is over 200.  This is very good news for our friendly probiotics.

Dear Friends

Last week one of our doctors reported the following successful protocol for a new patient with a declining condition of Parkinson’s Disease (PD).  The patient could barely walk.

After analysis, the doctor added these three products:

After two months the patient is now walking 4 miles a day.  And was having increasingly long stretches where she was feeling very well.

Gao et al., (2012) found that daily intake of dietary flavonoids lowers the risk of developing Parkinson disease in a large cohort of 49,281 men and 80,336 women that were followed for 20-22 years.  In general, high amounts of flavonoids, such as anthocyanins, quercetin, epicatechin, and proanthocyanidins were found to be protective. People who eat less blueberries and strawberries are more likely to develop PD. During that time 438 men and 367 women developed Parkinson Disease. Other studies show that blueberry and strawberry extracts increase dopamine release alleviating oxidative stress and suppressing neuroinflammation (Balk et al., 2006).

A number of factors play into the risk reduction or even a turnaround into better health: researchers have known for a long time that more fiber and lower animal fats reduce the risk of PD (Renoudet et al, 2012). The combination of fiber, probiotics (to produce L-dopa), and polyphenols in the Beta Glucan and No 7 all play part in the healthy functioning of our nervous system.

Our protocols add the Phyto Power and Blueberry Extract for a powerful addition of polyphenols. We’ll discuss these two products in our next email.
