How These Probiotics Can Benefit Your Heart

Did you know that BODY BIOTICS™ is a natural CHELATING AGENT?

After 33 years in the marketplace focusing on the Probiotics Prebiotics benefits of BODY BIOTICS, this additional critical health benefit has finally come to light.

What is Chelation Therapy? The chelation process serves the purpose of removing heavy metals from the body by using amino acids to create bonds between undesired minerals so that the body can get rid of them.The most common method of chelation therapy involves a drug called EDTA (ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid), which is approved by the FDA when used in this way. EDTA is prepared with a solution of vitamins and minerals, and administered intravenously. BODY BIOTICS acts as a natural agent to bond with these heavy metals and gently remove them from the body.

Today, the danger of heavy metal toxicity is becoming more and more prevalent. These toxic heavy metals pose a great threat to all of us and may lead to a decline in the mental, cognitive, and physical health of the individual. Metals that are often associated with toxicity in the body are mercury, arsenic, and cadmium. Many of these metals, such as zinc, copper, chromium, iron and manganese, are required by the body for normal function. However, even these required metals up to a certain point can become toxic and begin to interfere with normal organ system function. Daily ingestion of BODY BIOTICS, acting as a natural agent chelating agent, is designed to restore the normal function of these vital organs. *

Here is a brief list of the many benefits reported on from natural Chelation.

Chelation Therapy helps to:

• Rejuvenate your cardiovascular system *

• Reduce toxic lead, calcium, and metal deposits *

• Reduce leg cramps *

• Improve liver & kidney function *

• Increase circulation to the brain *

What are some of the Symptoms of high toxic levels of Heavy Metals in the body? The following list will give you a brief overview of some symptoms associated with high levels of heavy metals in the body. Keep in mind that experiencing one or two of these symptoms does not automatically mean that you have been exposed to toxic levels of these elements. This is simply a list that might help you to recognize a potential health issue and help you to determine if natural chelation is something that you may benefit from.

For more information and to determine if you are experiencing toxic levels of heavy metals, you should contact a health profession trained in this area.
Some of the negative effects of heavy metal toxicity that you should watch out for are: tremors, depression, mood swings, irritability, poor concentration, aggressive behavior, sleep disabilities, fatigue, speech disorders, neuropathy, and hair loss. *

Other Symptoms:

• Headaches *

• High Blood Pressure *

• Cardiovascular Disease *

• Metallic Taste in Mouth *

• Diarrhea / Constipation *

• Chronic Fatigue *

• Memory Loss *

• Altered Sense of Smell *

• Increased Allergic Reactions *

• Autoimmune Diseases *

Chelation Therapy has been in practice for many years with numerous success stories to support it. From our heart to yours, we rank BODY BIOTICS number 1 in alternative Heart Smart solutions. So remember, daily ingestion of BODY BIOTICS provides you with a natural chelating agent formulated to help remove heavy metals and restore normal organ functions. *

SBO Probiotics Consortia and Iron Assimilation

Find out how SBO Probiotics Consortia
keep this life-giving ally from
quickly becoming a threat to your health.

Did you know that iron deficiencies are regarded as one of the single most prevalent syndromes in human health issues. According to UNESCO’s World Health Organization statistics, hundreds of millions of people suffer from iron deficiency around the world. However, what these statistics do not disclose, according to Dr. Peter Rothschild’s article on ―The Biology of Lactoferrin,— is that less than half of these lack iron due to malnutrition. More than half of these suffer from iron deficiency because of metabolic problems that hinder or inhibit the assimilation of iron from the ingested food or because of low bio-accessibility of the ingested iron.*

Iron is one of the most essential elements in the metabolism of many forms of life. It is comprised of unique properties that enable it to, both, initiate and facilitate certain critical chemical reactions within a living organism. For humans, one of iron’s most important functions is assisting us to breath. *

In a healthy normal body, iron is bound by protein carrier molecules, such as ferritin, which prevents undesired negative actions in the body while at the same time allows the useful properties of iron to remain biologically available. When our body does not perform properly, left unchecked, this friendly ally becomes our enemy and pervasively stimulates infectious agents, such as, unfriendly bacteria, vi-ruses and yeast—that heavily depend on iron for their very existence. *

Living organisms employ a variety of mechanisms to sequester iron and transport it to the proper receptors for life-giving useful purposes. In humans, this mechanism is called Lactoferrin. In simple terms, Lactoferrin, such as that found in SBO Probiotics Consortia, retrieves and sequesters iron from the environment and de-livers it directly to where it is needed in the body.

To maintain a healthy environment for the proper use of iron in the body, two elements are extremely critical:

1.  Our ability to assimilate iron from the foods we eat, ie. it’s bio-accessibility.
2. The presence of substantial amounts of Lactoferrin in the body to sequester and deliver iron for its proper useful benefits.

The first becomes an apparent problem according to Dr. Peter Rothschild’s article referenced above, where he states: ―Iron that is used today to complement foods has a very low bio-accessibility rate. Only a very small portion – about 7% - is absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract and an even lesser percentage is actually assimilated by the organs that require it. In a useless effort to compensate for this shortcoming, persistently excessive amounts of iron are added to food in general. The iron that remains unassimilated supports infectious bacterial and viral growth in the entire organ-ism.” * 

Therefore, critical element number one is greatly dependent on our element number two, substantial amounts of Lactoferrin in the body, for the proper use of iron in the body. Rothschild states that: ―Iron carried by Lactoferrin is extremely bio-accessible – greater than 95% - yet it will not deliver it to noxious micro-organisms. Lactoferrin is identified by specific receptors and delivers iron to the epithelial cells of the small intestine. Iron is released only at the point of recognition and does, therefore, not become available to any other microorganism that may abound in the intestinal tract.‖ *

He goes on to say: ― “It has been demonstrated in breast fed infants that Lactoferrin is a key factor in both the absorption and assimilation of iron. Studies have revealed, for instance, that the absorption of iron from human milk – which is rich in Lactoferrin – is far more efficient than any of the so-called infant formulas that contain iron. The higher level of iron absorption from human milk yields a much lower incidence of iron deficiency anemia and much fewer intestinal derangements among breast fed infants.” *

―”Once iron is sequestered by Lactoferrin, it cannot be utilized by bacteria, viruses or yeast, or other parasites whose continuous metabolic need for iron is paramount, although such microorganisms do compete with Lactoferrin for iron by releasing minute molecular weight compound called siderophores, they are unable to capture iron in the presence of Lactoferrin. This implies that one of Lactoferrin’s primary functions is to act as a first line of defense against all pathogens.” *
Dr. Rothschild considers Lactoferrin, such as that found in SBO Probiotics Consortia, as a “first line of defense” against invading pathogens, or as he puts it  ― natures own endogenous antibiotics found naturally occurring in significant concentrations in human milk, saliva, tears, and other external secretions". *

Unlike your typical inorganic iron enriched foods or iron supplement vitamins, which are generally absorbed at a rate of 5-10%; Lactoferrin rich SBO Probiotics Consortia are far superior bio-accessible forms of organic iron that provide an absorption rate of 95%.  More importantly, this form of organic iron remains exclusively available to the cells for proper use in the body and can-not be absorbed by harmful invading pathogens.

In conclusion, there are many aspects of the use of iron in the body and how it supports other metabolic functions.  We have only touched on a couple of these vital biological reactions.  For more in-depth information you can review Dr. Rothschild complete article at: www.rothschildonprobiotics.com

Kids Probiotics-New Scientific Advances
That Can Help Protect Your Children For Years To Come!

The term Probiotics did not come into existence until 1989, when little was known about these mighty microbs. Today, two decades later, scientist are discovering the critical role that these friendly bacteria play in protecting our children’s health and wellbeing.

As a mother of two grown children and a grandmother of six, I know what it means to be concerned for our children’s health – and, not just for today, but for their lifetime. After 15 years of marketing a SBO Probiotics Consortia product, I have become quite versed in the dynamics of how Probiotics work to support one’s good health. I’ve especially become knowledgeable about what it takes to create a safe and effective Probiotics Consortia.

Fifteen years ago, I really didn’t know much about Probiotics….in fact, no one did. The term was so new that there were only a couple of known consumer formulas of it’s kind being sold in the US marketplace. Sure, we had yogurt type products, but for the most part, friendly bacteria were only used to ferment the yo-gurt not to restore the natural ecology of the intestinal tract. Not enough data had surfaced for manufacturers to focus on the actual benefits that these friendly bacteria have on our health. Medical and commercial interest in Probiotics grew from the pioneering efforts put forth by nutritional companies like LIFE SCIENCE PRODUCTS, who came face-to-face with consumers to share the good news.
Over time, the number of consumers experiencing tremendous benefits from the daily ingestion of Probiotics grew so large that mainstream marketers finally took notice. Probiotics popularity, which first began in the nutrition industry, spread quickly to the food industry, and ultimately under a preponderance of mounting evidence; the Medical and Pharmaceutical industries joined rank and began telling us the critical importance of consuming Probiotics on a daily basis. *

Probiotics popularity has inspired scientist and researchers from around the world to probe deeper into the health benefits of these friendly soil born bacteria. The most recent studies regarding children have produced compelling information that supports the use of Probiotics on a daily basis; some even indicate benefits when taken by the expectant mother long before the child is born. *

Here is a list of some studies focused on the use of Probiotics for Children:

Saran, et al, 2002 studied the use of fermented foods to combat stunting and failure to thrive in children. The conclusion: that 6 months of Probiotics supplementation may be beneficial to increase the integrity of the gut epithelium, to decrease diarrheal morbidity, and to accelerate growth in the experimental group. [Saran, et al., 2002] *
Atopic dermatitis, allergic rhinitis, and bronchial asthma in childhood represent a significantly large segment of chronic diseases in the Western World. According to Kopp, et al., 2007, his concept, supported by epidemiology data, shows that children with allergy in comparison to healthy children have a different intestinal flora with higher levels of Clostridia and lower levels of Bifidobacteria. [Kopp, et al., 2007] *

[Note: similar studies that support Kopp, et al., 2007 findings are: Ouwehand, 2007, Odamaki, et al., 2007, and Halpern, et al., 2002] *
Obesity among children is increasing at an alarmingly high rate. According to Kallioma, et al., 2008, children may find themselves in a vicious circle: obese children often become obese adults and maternal obesity over-nourishes the fetus, thereby programming the child to have a heightened risk of obesity as an adult. Scientific advances point to systemic low-grade inflammation and local gut microbiota as contributing factors to glucose being rapidly absorbed and fatty acids excessively stored. Both processes boost weight gain. [Kallioma, et al., 2008] *

The most recent studies regarding children have produced compelling information that supports the use of Probiotics on a daily basis ─ some studies even indicate benefits when taken by the expectant mother long before the child is born. *

Probiotics help mature the immune system in young children, reports Ouwehand, 2007. The intestine, where most of the antibody producing cells reside, is the body’s largest immune organ. According to Ouweland, 2007, consumption of Probiotics and Prebiotics aimed at modulating the composition and/or the activity of the intestinal microbiota, can be expected to influence the immune system, positively; after sufficient time and sufficient amount of consumption. *

As the rich colors of an Indian Summer quickly fade, winter of colds and flu seem to follow. 

People often demand a quick-fix, pushing doctors toward the choice remedy─Antibiotics!

Probiotics Verses Antibiotics
Scientist Believe One of These Are Making Us Fat?

 

In the early 1900’s, no one knew much about intestinal microbiota or the vital role that nature played in providing the body with naturally occurring Probiotics through the daily intake of wholesome organic foods.  In fact, before the discovery of antibiotics, there simply was not much doctors could do to fight bacterial infections. 

 

Known at the “Miracle Drug of the 20th Century,” antibiotics have brought about amazing recovery from illnesses which once claimed a multitude of lives. Streplococcus pyogenes caused half of all post-birth deaths and was a major cause of death from burns. Tuberculosis and Pneumonia bacteria were deadly killers and Stephylococcus aureus was fatal in more than 80% of infected wounds.  Today, antibiotics play a vital role in modern medicine. *

 

In 1928, when Alexander Fleming, a bacteriologist at London’s St. Mary’s Hospital, discovered that a mould on a discarded culture plate exhibited antibacterial activity, he had no idea what he had discovered.  It was not until after his writings were published, in 1929, which introduced Penicillin as a possible antiseptic that Australian-born Howard Florey and Jewish refugee from Hitler’s Berlin, Ernst Chain,  went on to analyze the biochemistry and prove its efficacy for human use. *

 

This was the beginning of the “Golden Age” of Antibiotics.  First prescribed in the late 1930’s, this great discovery quickly reduced the number of deaths caused by bacterial infection in staggering numbers.  Between the years 1944 and 1972, our human life expectancy increased by eight years, mostly as the direct result of the introduction of antibiotics.

 

Experts from around the world were certain that concerns over bacterial infections were finally put to rest.  In 1969, US Surgeon General, William Stewart, stated boldly to Congress that it was time to…“close the books on infectious diseases.”

 

However, the pioneering expert of this profound miracle, Alexander Fleming, had a less favorable prediction.  In his statement on June 26, 1945 to the New York Times, Fleming had this to say:

 

“The greatest possibility of evil in self-medication is the use of too small a dose such that instead of clearing up infection, the microbes are educated to resist Penicillin and a host of Penicillin-fast organisms is bred out, which can be passed to other individuals, and from them to others; until they reach someone who gets a Septicaemia or Pneumonia which Penicillin cannot save.” *

 

Within 4 years of its introduction, evidence of the emergence of Penicillin resistance bacteria were already being reported, although mostly ignored.  By the 1970s, Penicillin resistant strains of one of the most common causes of Pneumonia, Steptoccocus Pneumoniae, as well as, a variety of venereal diseases, popped up around the globe.

 

By 1999, in an assessment report titled: The Use of Antibiotics in Food Producing Animals: Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria in Animals and Humans from the Joint Expert Technical Advisory Committee on Antibiotic Resistance (JETCAR,) top Australian experts stated:

 

“Resistance has emerged for all known antibiotics in use today.  For most antibiotics, and classes of antibiotics, antibiotic resistant genes have also entered the bacterial population in the domains where antibiotics are used...for example in hospitals, farms, and aqua-culture ponds.” *

 

As consumers,  we should be concerned about the amount of antibiotics that we personally consume, and be aware of the fact that antibiotics are widely used in food animals as a growth promoter, as much as they are used to prevent and treat infections.  However, prolonged use of such antibiotics disrupts the metabolism of fat by altering the balance of microbes in the animals’ gut, thus leading to significant weight gain. The result is fatter cows, pigs, and chickens...not to mention faster, fatter profits. 

 

Similar to the microbial imbalance of the animals’ gut, antibiotics disrupt human intestinal function, making a compelling case for the Antibiotics ─Obesity connection.  This is old but forgotten news dating back, as far as, 1955,  researchers have been pointing to antibiotics as an important contributing factor to the rapidly growing obesity epidemic.*

 

In the December 16, 2009, issue of Scientific American, one article expresses serious concerns that antibiotics kill off many important microbes essential for human life. This industry journal even used the word “extinction” when referring to the disappearance of certain important bacteria that are being killed off by overuse of antibiotics. *

 

Science magazine on March 4, 2010,  elaborated on earlier observations made by Blaser, when researchers at Cornell, Emory, and the University of Colorado, reported that gut microbiota determines how food is digested and fat is stored in the body. They further stated that antibiotics can disrupt certain bacteria in the gut that can lead to obesity, as well as, increased inflammatory processes that can trigger metabolic syndrome─a serious condition that can lead to high cholesterol levels, higher risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes.*

 

According to Lawrence Cheskin, MD., Director of the Johns Hopkins Weight Management Center, “Medication-related weight gain has become far more important over the past decade as obesity increases in prevalence and more people are taking medications for chronic illnesses.” *

 

While these miracle drugs certainly suppress unfriendly, disease-causing microbes, they simultaneously,  kill off an army of  beneficial  micro-flora critical to good health leading to unintended adverse consequences.

 

Unfortunately, we live in a world filled with toxic overuse of chemicals-from those used in our fruit and vegetable supply; to antibiotics feed animal foods, and finally, our personal use of antibiotic.  Often we do not get the daily Probiotics needed to maintain a proper microbial balance in the GI tract.  This means that it is up to each individual to add a quality daily Probiotics Consortia supplement to help combat the negative effects of living in today’s toxic world. Body Biotics™ Prebiotics / Probiotics Supplements is a healthy alternative to help minimize your need for antibiotics and to restore the gut after the use of them.
