Therapeutic Foods Paradigm Principle

Chronic Disease

When we bring into account the world’s condition in the 21st Century we realize that our toxic environment, increasingly virulent pathogens, world commerce and travel, dietary practices and habits, and fast-paced life style are multilayered factors that jointly create a deadly combination against good health. Health experts and scientists describe our global population’s health condition as a mounting crisis of chronic illnesses. Fortunately, it is also known that 70% of the chronic diseases today can be prevented and even cured with life style changes, dietary modifications and therapeutic intervention.

Dietary Intervention is Key

Governments worldwide have adopted the “5-A-Day” slogan to eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day. It is a good start. Good nutrition is foundational to good health. Nonetheless, the fact of life is that the bioaccumulation of xenobiotics (industrial chemicals and environmental pollution) along with increasingly virulent and resistant pathogens has overwhelmed our immune and nervous systems. We need help.

Eat better with Therapeutic Foods

The Therapeutic Foods Line of products is founded on the new paradigm principle that the pace of life will in fact become faster and although we purpose to slow down and properly eat 5 to 9 organically produced fruits and vegetables a day, hormone and antibiotic free meat and dairy, fermented foods and wholesome organic grains, nuts and seeds, it is not enough. We need more. We need 21st Century advanced manufacturing and scientifically backed Therapeutic Foods that are designed to deeply nourish and combat the growing multi-factorial assault on our bodies.

Therapeutic Foods Provides the Added Platform for Health

BioImmersion Inc. Therapeutic Food Line is a revolutionary new paradigm in the practice of medicine. It is the culmination of 30 years of research and experience in the medical and healthcare arena. Food as medicine is an ancient concept, but food as medicine with 21st Century technology and advancing scientific discoveries is transforming the known therapeutic modalities of today. The Therapeutic Food Line is a foundational platform to modern day medicine. Each formula provides powerful nutrients that help the body repair, regenerate and protect against the onslaught of environmental toxins, pollutions and increasingly virulent pathogens. The diversity of the Therapeutic Foods provides
a magnitude of important scientifically researched medical applications.

Four Important Therapeutic Foods

Wild Blueberry Daily

Blueberries are shown in research worldwide to help protect the brain from aging diseases, memory loss and other ailments of the nervous system. Our brain is the center of our universe and defines who we are. Wild Blueberry has been called the brain‐berry. The wild blueberry from Nova Scotia was rated #1 in ORAC units (Oxygen Radical Absorbent Capacity) by the USDA, for any berry in North America. Protects against cognitive decline, and general inflammation throughout the body.

Ingredients: Nova Scotia wild blueberry; 350mg of pure high actives whole wild blueberry and 150mg of the pure purple part (the extract). ORAC per capsule‐ 2000! The ORAC average in each meal with 5 servings of fruits and vegetables is‐ 2500.

Fructo Borate Complex

Studies show that populations that have low levels of boron in their diet have high rates of osteoporosis and arthritis. We, as North Americans, have low levels of boron in our soil and diet, the consequence of which‐ we suffer from bone and joint disease. Most Americans get less than 1mg of boron daily; the RDA for boron is 3mg per day. Maintain bone health and joint health with Fructo Borate Complex.

Ingredients: New form of boron supplementation that is the exact structure of dietary boron found in fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. Each capsule contains 240 mg of Fructo Borate and 260 mg of calcium ascorbate, providing 6mg of boron which is double the RDAs for boron. As in all our encapsulated products no excipients used.

High ORAC Synbiotic Formula

The #1 reason for visits to the emergency room is gastrointestinal distress! In our lifetime we put 60 tons of food into our digestive tract. Our food is increasingly contaminated with pathogens and toxins, which cause poor digestion and gut inflammation, shown to be leading cause for many chronic diseases. The High ORAC components lower inflammation, neutralize free radicals, protects against pathogens and promote good digestion.

Ingredients: 25 billion pedigreed probiotic strains of L. acidophilus and B. longum with wild blueberry extract, grape and grape seed extract, raspberry and raspberry seed extract, wild bilberry extract, cranberry, tart cherry and prune with inulin soluble fiber from chicory root. Provides an ORAC of 1500 per capsule!

Beta Glucan Synbiotic Formula

Cardiovascular disease still remains the number one killer in the world. Reducing elevated bad cholesterol (LDL) levels, and raising the often too low good cholesterol (HDL) is a proven preventative necessity. The Beta Glucan Synbiotic Formula provides not only good bacteria to protect and enhance the proper functioning of the gastrointestinal tract but provides the important beta glucan fibers and beet fiber betalain molecules that improve the cholesterol ratios in the blood. Taken at the level of two tablespoons a day, the Beta Glucan Formula qualifies this for the American Heart Association and the FDA “Heart Healthy Seal of Approval”.

Ingredients: 15 billion pedigreed probiotic strains of L. acidophilus, B. longum, L. rhamnosus, L. plantarum and S. thermophilus and a patented oat brand, whole red beet root and inulin from chicory fiber. No excipients.

We chose to carry Pure Encapsulations because they specialize in high quality, hypoallergenic nutritional supplements. Their products contain no hidden fillers, coatings, artificial colors or other excipients that would disrupt or diminish the bioavailability of the ingredients. This means their products are easily absorbed to get you the most pure and potent form of nutrients. Additionally, their products are always free of wheat, gluten, nuts, egg, preservatives and hydrogenated oils.

Energy Xtra

Energy Xtra offers a blend of key adaptogenic herbs for enhancing mental and physical work capacity and stamina.

Adaptogens have long been associated with increasing energy, enhancing stamina, and reducing fatigue. They encourage physical work capacity and mental performance. Often referred to as tonics, they have far reaching effects on overall physiological health, supporting immune, cardiovascular, and endocrine functions. At the same time, they help the body to adapt to and cope with stress, primarily by supporting the hypothalamic- pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis.

Digestive Enzymes Ultra

Digestive Enzymes Ultra contains a high-strength mixture of vegetarian enzymes supporting enhanced protein, carbohydrate, fat, fiber and dairy digestion and promoting optimal nutrient bioavailability and absorption.

* Digestive Enzymes Ultra contains an all-encompassing profile of vegetarian digestive enzymes. Proteases included in this formula facilitate the normal breakdown of proteins and di- and tri-peptides. Lipase promotes lipid breakdown while amylase and glucoamylase are included to stimulate polysaccharide breakdown of starch and glycogen. Invertase and lactase support digestion of carbohydrate disaccharides, including the dairy sugar lactose. This formula also offers numerous enzymes to support fiber breakdown, including cellulase, hemicellulase, beta-glucanase and phytase. These enzymes act to break down cell wall components and phytic acid, promoting nutrient bioavailability of fiber-containing foods. Additionally, alpha-galactosidase promotes the breakdown of certain complex carbohydrates, such as raffinose and stachyose, found in some vegetables, grains and legumes–helping to relieve occasional bloating or gas.

Probiotic–5 (dairy–free)

Probiotic–5 (dairy–free) is a high–strength blend of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria to promote GI tract health and comfort, immune cell function and overall health.

*This dairy–free formula provides 10 billion CFU of the beneficial bacteria Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Bifidobacterium longum, Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium lactis. Research indicates that these strains may have particular health promoting properties for gastrointestinal (GI) and immune health. L. acidophilus and B. longum have been shown to promote healthy cytokine production in the colon and maintain healthy GI barrier function, in part by supporting the mucosal lining of the GI tract. Several trials have also revealed that mixed probiotic supplementation helps maintain intestinal flora, support healthy yeast balance, and promote GI comfort. Studies also suggest that probiotics support immune health, enhancing B cell, T cell and NK cell function.

Vitamin D3 5,000 i.u.

Vitamin D3 enhances calcium absorption and retention, a key nutritional role in supporting healthy bones; new evidence suggests it may also have a prominent role in cellular, cardiovascular, colon and immune health.

Vitamin D promotes intestinal calcium and phosphorous absorption and reduces urinary calcium loss, essential mechanisms for maintaining proper calcium levels in the body and for healthy bone composition. Vitamin D supports cardiovascular function in some individuals, which may be attributed to its effect on calcium metabolism or possibly by helping to maintain healthy plasma renin function. A role for vitamin D in supporting colon health by promoting healthy cellular function has also been suggested. Furthermore, vitamin D is believed to provide general cellular support potential, including for the breast and prostate, in part by helping to maintain healthy angiogenesis balance, supporting immune cell activity, and maintaining healthy cell metabolism. Vitamin D’s role in immune health has long been established; vitamin D receptors are found on a number of immune cells, including lymphocytes and macrophages, supporting healthy immune cell activation.

Iron-C

Iron-C provides the body with a highly utilizable form of iron, supporting optimal muscle function.

*The major function of iron is to combine with protein and copper in the synthesis of hemoglobin. Iron is necessary to manufacture myoglobin, a transporter of oxygen found in muscle tissue, which causes the chemical reactions that initiate muscle contractions. Vitamin C enhances the intestinal absorption of iron.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
