Welcome to this month’s BioNews.  We learn to free ourselves from controls exerted over us. As we research we become FREE, we become powerful.  This pursuit of self-defense in wellness, I call “The Martial Art of Wellness.” And as we practice we become Ninja.


QUOTE OF THE MONTH

” The medical literature tells us that the most effective ways to reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and many more problems are through healthy diet and exercise. Our bodies have evolved to move, yet we now use the energy in oil instead of muscles to do our work. ”

– David Suzuki

THIS ISSUE’S TESTIMONIAL: Nothing but BAC

“It has been several months now that I have been on BAC (Bio-Algae Concentrates). Just recently, I had my annual medical check-up. I am proud to announce that I lost ten pounds and my blood pressure reading was 118 over 76. My Doctor just wrote in regards to my blood work, he stated my blood looks great. With me only taking three F2 tablets per day in the morning, I now can say I do feel the difference. I usually work out by myself in the morning, but now I work out in the evening as well with my daughter with her basketball drills.”
– John Pointer, KY – former linebacker in the Canadian and American Football Leagues.


THE MARTIAL ART OF WELLNESS (100 million new heart patients!)

According to the American Heart Association, you may be one of the more than 100 million “new” individuals now considered as suffering from abnormal blood pressure. Boom! Just like that, you are considered a “patient”

Why this sudden surge in numbers? Very simple: it’s all about the new regulations. In 2017, the American Heart Association decided to eliminate the category of pre-hypertension and made 130/80 mm Hg as the cut-off limit for being a hypertensive patient.

This takes blood pressure to a whole new level. With these new guidelines, young people (under the age of 45 years) will have a high blood pressure prevalence that is double for women and triple for men over previous years. In writing this, I can’t help but imagine how much business this will bring in for the mainstream physicians, and for the blood pressure medication manufacturers.

For decades, cardiovascular diseases have been among the top three causes of mortality and morbidity in both the USA and worldwide. According to the CDC, in the USA alone, 17.7 million people die yearly due to diseases of the heart, and 80% of these deaths are caused by heart attacks and strokes. And, unfortunately, cardiovascular diseases are becoming more pronounced and widespread throughout the world.

The mainstream medical solution

What the current mainstream medical model increasingly offers are surgeries and stronger life-long medications – all with numerous negative side effects. For heart failure, heart attacks, atherosclerosis and high blood pressure; the attention is always directed to invasive or chemical solutions. And the sad truth, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), most deaths from cardiovascular disease are due to a few preventable causes.

There is a better solution – the holistic route 

The mainstream medical model tends to isolate and treat surgically or chemically every aspect of a non-functioning organ such as an arterial tear, or a physical or chemical malfunction; disregarding likely root causes such as weight, diet, lifestyle, or stress.

Because of my years of benefiting from living a holistic wellness lifestyle, I am happy to share an alternative holistic perspective and solution for preventing and/or alleviating cardiovascular problems and distress. The holistic model for cardiovascular health encompasses the entire body and its cellular interactions as a solution. In this holistic view, one needs to become fully aware that the entire cardiovascular system with its thousands of miles of arteries, blood vessels/capillaries, heart and regulatory system is made of trillions of self-regulating super intelligent cells. Aiming for a healthy heart means that one must acknowledge this definitive cellular interaction within and between the organs, glands, tissues, blood, and nerves. When you acknowledge these interactions as “fact”, you realize that achieving wellness begins with a diet and lifestyle that are supportive of cellular health and vitality.

One should start by eliminating junk foods, reducing/eliminating foods that are high in saturated fats, acidic foods like red meats, dairy, and fried foods, and instead, one should increase the consumption of many alkalizing foods, like vegetables and fruits, seeds and nuts, and other plant-based foods, good fats, and fiber-rich foods among many others.  If Americans implemented this self-managed approach, it is estimated that over 80% of cardiovascular diseases would be eliminated.

In the following chart where statistics from the CDC and NIH have been merged together, one can clearly see that substance abuses (tobacco, overeating, wrong foods, alcohol, over the counter and other drugs, etc.) as being an undeniable causation of the top six killer diseases in America.

Taking it to the next level with Bio-Algae Concentrates (BAC)

Because of my long years of helping myself, my family and many clients benefit from consuming the Bio-Algae Concentrates (BAC) developed by Dr. Michael Kiriac, PhD during long years of research, I want to share with you the reasons why they may help you in your pursuit of cardiovascular health, and total wellness.

Starting in the early 70s, the agencies in the former USSR invested more than 20,000 person-years of research and development to produce Bio-Algae Concentrates (BAC) that hold extraordinary nutritional properties. Consisting of blends of the four best algae among over 25,000 available on earth, these concentrates have been tested, proven and used for agricultural and human applications now for more than 25 years. These naturally-occurring nutrient storehouses are enhanced by highly-refined, innovative growth technologies. The resulting synergistic nutraceutical blends are of ideal proportion to far exceed the benefits of any other single alga, algae blend, green food or superfood.     

BAC can definitely be your nutritional ally in your holistic pursuit of cardiovascular health. BAC contains a wealth of nutrients enough to be considered the perfect food – too numerous to mention all;

  • Amino-Acids – BAC contains all essential and non-essential amino acids, making for a complete human grade protein
  • Vitamins: A, the entire B-Complex with B1-thiamine, B2-riboflavin, B3-niacin/nicotinamide, B5-pantothenic acid, B6-pyridoxine, B7 – biotin /Choline – B4 – one of the only vitamins that cross the blood-brain-barrier {Elson Haas}, B9-folic acid, B12-cyanocobalamin, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, and vitamin K
  • Minerals: BAC contains likely some trace of all minerals/trace elements such as potassium, calcium, chromium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, selenium, sodium, zinc, and many more
  • Photosynthetic elements such as chlorophyll-a, xanthophyll, alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, echinenone, myxoxanthophyll, zeaxanthin, astaxanthin, canthaxanthin, diatoxanthin, lutein, licopene, 3′-hydroxyechinenone, beta-cryptoxanthin, oscillaxanthin, phycobiliproteins c-phycocyanin and allophycocyanin, and others.
  • Fatty Acids: BAC contains the Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), linoleic acid (LA), stearidonic acid (SDA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and arachidonic acid (AA)
  • BAC contains all the nutrients to be considered a perfect food

BAC Awakens the Genius Within!

Aside from this incredible complete nutrient spectrum, what makes BAC a perfect food, is its efficiency at crossing the blood-brain barrier.  In the words of Dr. Michael Kiriac;

the bio-algae concentrates are the culmination of cellular nutrition, the perfect superfood that can cross the blood-brain barrier and efficiently nourish the cells of the hypothalamus, awakening the genius within.”

It is its abundance in naturally occurring photosynthetic elements such as chlorophylls, beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, astaxanthin and many other phytonutrients that gives BAC its extra-ordinary efficiency at reaching and nourishing the cells that make up the hypothalamus (the genius within), the most critical brain organ that regulates all endocrine glands and organs of our body.   Many of those phytonutrients, amino-acids, and photosynthetic nutrients present in BAC have been proven in several clinical trials to cross the blood-brain barrier and nutritionally energize the hypothalamus.

When the hypothalamus is energized/awakened, like any good commander, its first mission is to restore the balance (achieve homeostasis) within his team – starting with the endocrine glands, the guardians of health. When the endocrine glands are tasked by the hypothalamus they have no choice but to obey the hormonal signals/commands. These glands are largely responsible for triggering the metabolic activity of the various organs (liver, pancreas, kidney, etc.), glands (thyroid, adrenals, gonads, etc.) and systems/levels (blood insulin level, pH levels, cardiac function, selenium, vitamin D, calcium activities, etc.) of the body. In turn, when these metabolic systems begin to function well, we will observe symptoms of health instead of symptoms of a disease. Allow me to list a few of the functions/benefits that are better regulated by a well-energized-hypothalamus:

  • Improved brain function
  • Improved memory
  • Improved neurological function
  • Improved cellular repair
  • Prevention of tumorigenesis
  • Increased assimilation and absorption of nutrients from regular food
  • Better digestion
  • Improved cardiovascular function
  • Improved metabolism
  • Enhanced nucleotide production
  • Balanced blood sugar
  • Enhanced cellular glucose uptake
  • Enhanced hormonal function
  • Better bowel movements
  • Improved detoxification process
  • Protection from free radicals
  • Reduced fatigue
  • Increased energy
  • Enhanced libido

Overall, many benefits to cardiovascular health have been observed in various algae research with spirulina, chlorella, dunaliella and others.   While as it relates to BAC, during many years of research by Dr. Kiriac, many improvements specific to the cardiovascular systems were observed in several large studies with pigs, cows, goats, and sheep.

  • Supporting the heart and blood vessels
  • Improving elasticity and resilience of heart tissues
  • Lowering blood pressure in hypertensive individuals
  • Increasing protection of the vascular system
  • Preventing and reducing “bad” cholesterol or LDL
  • Preventing atherosclerosis
  • Strengthening tissues throughout the body, especially connective tissues
  • Strengthening anti-inflammatory effects
  • Guarding against arterial deterioration
  • Lowering blood fat protecting the vascular system
  • Preventing and dissolving arterial deposits
  • Reducing oxidative stress and inflammation
  • Improving lipid profiles
  • Promoting better blood flow in capillaries

Aside from specific benefits to cardiovascular health, one cannot ignore the overall health support benefits when consuming BAC:

  • Helping the body to detoxify from heavy metals such as arsenic
  • Helping to eliminate candida
  • Helping to prevent cancer
  • Lowering the incidence of HIV/AIDS
  • Boosting energy and stamina
  • Stabilizing weight
  • Relieving sinus infections
  • And much more

After everything you are discovering about this superfood, don’t you think it is worth incorporating it into your daily habits?

Other research linking algae to cardiovascular health:

Japan, the Department of Internal Medicine of Tokai University conducted a study on men to observe the link between spirulina and serum cholesterol. 30 men with high cholesterol, mild hypertension, and hyperlipidemia, were administered spirulina without having any other changes in their lifestyles. Following the same regimen for 8 weeks led these men to have much lower LDL, cholesterol, and triglycerides levels.

Mexico, a study linked the administration of spirulina and its beneficial effect on viruses, namely herpes complex 2, pseudorabies virus, and adenovirus.

The United States, a study showed that the continuous intake of spirulina diminishes ischemia/reperfusion-induced apoptosis and cerebral infarction.

California, the School of Medicine at the University of California in Davis studied a group of men over a period of 12 weeks.  Half were given spirulina and half were given a placebo (no spirulina). The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of the algae on Allergic Rhinitis. The results showed that those who were administered the spirulina had much lower levels of cytokines. This explains the beneficial effect of spirulina on Allergic Rhinitis.

The University of Maryland Medical Center explains the beneficial role of spirulina in increasing the production of antibodies and essential proteins that will help boost the immune system, prevent infection and keep chronic diseases away.

Hirahachi et al, explained that spirulina is a potential superfood that boosts the immune system and hence suppressed the development of viruses and cancer cells.
