Diet Product Comparisons – Which type is best for you?

How many diet products have you heard about? How many have you tried for yourself? If you are like the average person who wants to lose a little weight, you have probably tried quite a few. So what is the best?

This summary comparison will focus on two broad categories. Chemical and Natural.

Chemical based products, which has two sub-categories, prescription only and “over the counter”, include:-

  • Dermal patches which pass chemicals through your skin to change your thyroid activity.
  • Pills which claim to block your body’s absorption of carbohydrates by changing the way you digest them.
  • Pills which block your body from absorbing fat and oil, allowing it to pass through your digestive system.
  • Pills which use caffeine to boost your metabolism.
  • Pills which claim to imitate your brain’s signals to make your brain think your stomach is full.

People often turn to chemical based diet products looking for a “quick fix”, however as you can see from the summary above, these products interfere in some way or another with your body’s natural processes. In addition, by definition, they involve adding chemicals to your body.

We are all individuals and have our own particular metabolism and chemistry, so the effects of these chemical based diet products can be unpredictable. Unpleasant and even dangerous side effects have been reported by many people.

Chemical based diet products do not aim to provide you with any nutritional benefit, in fact they often aim to interrupt your body’s absorption of nutrients.

Natural diet products do not require any prescription. They are food. Natural diet products include:-

  • Wu Yi Tea. Green tea’s health benefits are undisputed. Hundreds of years of usage have proven the benefits which have now been backed by scientific studies. Green tea adds nutrition to your diet, with high levels of antioxidants, catechins, flavonoids, vitamins and minerals. The natural ingredients in green tea promotes thermogenesis and naturally boost your metabolic rate causing you burn calories faster.
  • Hoodia Gordonii a cactus plant from Africa which is proven to suppress appetite. So you simply eat less.
  • Acai Berries (euterpe oleraceae) -a dark purple berry from an Amazonian palm tree which is now known as one of the top ten superfoods. Acai berries are proven to be rich in minerals, vitamins, including natural vitamin E, fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, oleic (omega-9) fatty acids, antioxidants (including anthocyanidins), phytosterols and polyphenols. Acai berries, available as a juice product or in convenient capsule form, help you lose weight by detoxifying your system, eliminating built up waste and reducing water retention.
  • Pure Acai – One of the most Nutritious & Powerful foods in the World!

  • Maqui Berries (aristotelia chilensis) – a new superfood discovery from Patagonia. Maqui (pronounced mah-key) berries are like Acai berries on steroids. They have more than twice the antioxidant ORAC score of Acai berries. ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity)is a measure of a foods ability to neutralize damaging free radicals.

  • Chlorella – is a microscopic dark green algae superfood nutrient source. Is 60% protein with all 8 essential amino acids, has 23 vitamins and minerals and a special ingredient called Chlorella Growth Factor which supplies RNA and DNA. It’s superior nutritional qualities reduce food cravings which can cause over-eating. Additionally, chlorella’s fibrous cell wall has the ability to remove heavy metals from your system. Read all about Chlorella HERE
  • Spirulina – a blue-green algae which is considered to be a whole food. Spirulina provides total nutrition, so like chlorella, it nourishes your body so you don’t feel the need to eat junk foods or overeat. Read all about Spirulina HERE

This summary comparison clearly shows which group is the most beneficial to your body. The products you select to help you lose weight will be your individual choice. Do your self a favor – choose wisely.


Hoax John Hopkins Email – Cancer Update from John Hopkins

Below is the text of an email being circulated.

You will note it is attributed to Johns Hopkins, a world famous and highly respected medical research school based in the United States. However, none of the claims in the message were published or in any way endorsed by Johns Hopkins. In fact, Johns Hopkins has released a statement denying any involvement.

It really is a shame they cannot address the email and give us their point of view, rather than just denying any involvement.  Surely it’s a good thing to give the public sensible anti cancer information.

Of course I’d like that information to be correct and be useful in our daily existence.   To ensure you’re getting correct, up to date information I recommend you read Dr David Servan-Schreiber’s book “Anti Cancer – A new way of life” which directly addresses a lot of the points. Find out more about the book HERE.

The text of the hoax email follows:-

“AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY AND ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY.

Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins :

1.   Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2.    Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person’s lifetime.
3.   When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumours.

4.  When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5.  To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6.   Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7.   Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.
8.  Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9.    When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.
11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.
WHAT CANCER CELLS FEED ON:
a.     Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal,Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added> to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg’s aminos or sea salt.
b.     Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells are being starved.
c.      Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.
d.     A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment.  About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).
e.     Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine.  Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrefied and leads to more toxic build-up.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body’s killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body’s own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body’s normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

Nutrition – Starting From Zero

We are constantly bombarded with messages from the media telling us that foods we have consumed for years are suddenly bad for us. One day eggs are good for you, the next day they are bad for your heart – what is the actual situation now?

You can’t afford to miss the information in the new movie “Food Matters” – Click the Title to find out more.

You need to eat more leafy green vegetables, reduce your consumption of bad fats (saturated animal fats), increase your consumption of good fats (like olive oil and avocado), eat quality lean protein, eat more fish (but beware of the mercury!), reduce your intake of sugar. Eat fewer processed foods. So what is the bottom line? What are nutritionists trying to tell you? It all boils down to the fact that what you don’t eat is more important than what you do eat.

Start From Zero
The best way to figure out what you should be eating to live up to your highest health potential is to start from recording what you are eating. It’s so easy to forget that extra bit of something. So, use your digital camera or phone camera. Every time you eat, stop, think, take a picture. Remember that the camera doesn’t lie. At the end of each day, write a list of the foods shown in those pictures. This may take a while, but you will be able to see that most foods can be broken down into a few simple categories at their basic ingredients:

  • Meat (beef, pork,chicken, fish, other seafood, etc)
  • Dairy products (milk, cheese, yogurt, cream, desserts, etc)
  • Corn products (bread, chips, popcorn, etc)
  • Wheat (pastas, breads, desserts, etc)
  • Soy (bread, desserts, drinks, anything processed, etc)
  • Fruit
  • Vegetables
  • Water
  • Energy drinks
  • Alcoholic drinks

Now take out a fresh piece of paper and add only the items that fall under the category of fruits and vegetables. This is what is called starting from zero. Remove everything that does not contribute to your health and only add back those items that you know are good for you. Mark whether the food is natural or processed. Aim for unprocessed, preferably organic, fruit and vegetables.

Why Fruits and Vegetables?

The governments of the world recommend that you eat between 5 to 10 fruits and vegetables every day. This recommendation is a great one and it has helped dozens of people lose weight and become healthier. It’s easy eat 5 to 10 fruits and vegetables a day by eliminating other snacks like muffins, cakes or cookies. Apples, bananas, mandarin’s, oranges are easy to take with you almost anywhere, just wash them at home to make life a bit easier.  Find out more about the colors of fruit & vegetables HERE

It is only by eliminating the unhealthy, extraneous or over-processed foods that you will be able to incorporate the recommended quantity of healthy ones.

The Building Blocks of Health
Think of this exercise as a way to build up your health, starting from the base. By eliminating meat, dairy and aggravating grains from your diet you prepare your body for proper nutrition. You allow yourself to cleanse and you provide your body with all the enzymes, the minerals and the vitamins that your body requires for proper functioning.

Find out more about Enzymes by viewing our Enzyme Series HERE

Looking at the new list of healthy foods, you might see that it needs to be improved upon a bit. Why not add some new and exotic fruits and vegetables that you never tried before? Add more healthful grains in the form of brown rice, quinoa, barley and buckwheat if you find you need something denser. Old fashioned foods like rolled oats are great for you as well as tasting good.

Give Yourself a New Start
By starting fresh you give your body a break and a chance to rejuvenate itself. If you decide that you would like to add some of the things from the original list back into your diet, do so only 30 days after this exercise. Then watch to see how your body reacts to this newly added food. If you don’t experience any side effects then you can continue to eat it, once again. Otherwise you have proof that it was never that good for you in the first place.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. I heard that liquid vinegar is very effective. Why should I choose vinegar in a tablet form?
Vinegar tablets are actually more concentrated and more effective than liquid vinegar. Highly concentrated vinegar extract would be too sour for consumption in liquid form. In order to give you multiple benefits, different types of concentrated vinegars are blended into each tablet. Liquid vinegar usually only contains one or two types. Finally, tablets are obviously more convenient; you can take them any time, anywhere.

2. Can I chew the vinegar tablet?
No. It is much better to swallow the tablet with water. The best way to take a vinegar tablet is to take a sip of water leaving a bit of water in your mouth, then place the tablet into your mouth and swallow immediately. Drink more water if required.

3. Can I take vinegar tablets with other beverages (such as fruit juice) instead of warm water?
Yes. However, we do not recommend that you take vinegar tablets with dairy-based or high protein beverages.

4. Can I take vinegar tablets with hot water?
Yes, the temperature will not affect the vinegar, but it’s important to make sure that you do not use water that could scald your mouth.

5. I’m healthy and not suffering from any aches and pains, is there a need for me to take vinegar tablets?
Vinegar tablets can help anyone to maintain health. They are especially great for people who have stressful lifestyles and unhealthy eating habits because vinegar tablets help to counteract acidity in the body.

6. Can I take vinegar tablets while I’m on other health supplements?
Certainly. Vinegar tablets will not reduce the efficacy of other supplements. In fact, they help the body to absorb nutrients such as Vitamin B Complex, Calcium and Iron better. Vinegar tablets also offer many other health benefits. However, we do not recommend taking vinegar tablets along with probiotics supplements.

7. My body is weak, and I was advised to avoid sour foods. Since vinegar is very sour, will taking vinegar tablets cause any undesirable effects to my body?
No, it will not. On the contrary, it benefits your body as it increases absorption of other nutrients.

8. I’m currently taking medication for hypertension, diabetes & etc prescribed by my doctor. Can I take vinegar tablets and how should I take them?

Yes, you can. However, we recommend an interval of 3 hours between intake of your medication and vinegar tablets.

9. Will I be dependent on vinegar tablets? If I stop taking vinegar tablets, will my body revert to its previously unhealthy state?
Vinegar tablets do not cause dependency. However, if you stop taking the tablets and do not change your unhealthy lifestyle and eating habits e.g. excessive intake of meat, refined food and insufficient intake of dietary fibre, your body could revert to its previously unhealthy state.

10. I’m a vegetarian. Can I take vinegar tablets?
Yes. Our vinegar tablets are made of apple cider and cereal vinegar, and do not contain animal products.

11. Who should not take vinegar tablets?
People suffering from serious gastritis and gastric ulcer should not take vinegar tablets.

12. Are there any other uses for vinegar tablets?
Yes, vinegar tablets:

  • Help digestion, prevent thirst and regulate bodily functions
  • Freshen breath and promote secretion of saliva
  • Act as a teapot cleaning agent: Add one tablet into the pot and boil together with the water to remove stubborn stains inside the teapot
  • Help to clean and maintain healthy feet: Grind 1 tablet into powder and mix into a bowl of warm water. Soak your feet in it for 10-15 minutes before bedtime
  • Keep vegetables fresh: Grind half a tablet into powder and add into water, then soak the vegetables in water for 5 minutes,
  • Prevent flowers from withering: Grind 1 tablet into powder and add to the water in the vase.
  • Protect your pets from fleas and mites: Grind 1 tablet into powder and dissolve it into your pet’s drinking water.

13. Is there a different dosage for children and adults?
Yes, please refer to the guide below.

Recommended dosage:
For children 6 years or older 2 tablets after meal, twice daily.
For adults (maintenance) 5 tablets after meal, twice daily.
For adults (improvement) 10 tablets after meal, twice daily.


Your Personal Firewall Against An Acidic Body – Part 4 – Transform Yourself

If you regularly consume food that is high in calories and mainly consists of fat and protein, have inadequate physical exercise and high stress levels at work, you are likely to have a sluggish citric acid cycle and a huge accumulation of lactic acid in the blood stream.

You are also highly susceptible to obesity, muscle aches, high blood pressure, diabetes, and other chronic diseases. You might have to rely on medication if you do not start adjusting your diet, exercise, and lifestyle soon. However, you can easily bring your health back on the right track by improving your citric acid cycle with the introduction of natural acetic acid (vinegar) into your diet.

Vinegar – Your Personal Firewall Against Diseases

1. Eliminates fatigue & reduces muscle aches

Lactic acid tends to accumulate in the body after strenuous exercises or from consuming too much meat. This build up of lactic acid causes tiredness, fatigue, stiff shoulders, natalgia / sore lower back, inflammation of the joints and shoulders, sciatic nerve pain / pelvic pain, neuralgia / aching nerves, knee neuralgia / sore knees, shoulder neuralgia / spinal aches, etc. Lactic acid also causes poor blood circulation, resulting in blood acidity, which is one of the main causes of neuralgia. Lactic acid combines with protein to form lactic protein, which causes shoulder soreness and neuralgia / lower back pain, as well as arterial hardening if it is allowed to accumulate in the blood.

2. Transforms an acidic body

All patients suffering from chronic diseases and cancer have an acidic body, which is also the case for those who consume a large amount of meat in their diet. This is probably why people who consume large amounts of meat are more prone to cancer. The risk of disease is reduced when we reduce acidity in the body. Vinegar might taste sour (acidic) but it becomes alkaline once it enters the body, and taking it frequently will make the blood slightly alkaline which is the body’s healthy and natural state.

3. Revitalises cells, supports blood flow

The poly amino acids in vinegar cause red blood cells to be more flexible and able to pass smoothly through narrow capillaries to transport oxygen to all parts of the body, aiding cell revitalization. Smooth blood flow can help prevent high blood pressure, heart diseases and stroke. It also alleviates edema and varicose veins that are caused by poor blood circulation.

4. Cleanses blood, prevents arthritic pain

Clean blood is slightly alkaline and lower in viscosity. When we consume a lot of meat, our blood and body fluids become acidic and more waste products are produced during metabolism and energy output. This increase in waste matter puts additional stress on the kidneys and can lead to uremia in serious cases. Arthritic pains happen when there is too much uric acid in the blood stream; the waste increase in the blood also leads to higher blood viscosity which can result in hardened arteries. V inegar helps maintain a healthy alkaline level by preventing uric acid build up and body fluid acidification. It also promotes the excretion of deposited uric acid, reduces the burden on kidneys, prevents gout and solves each kind of fearful cardiovascular disease.

5. Relieves gastrointestinal discomforts

Nowadays, people often suffer from autonomic nerve abnormalities due to extreme pressure. Autonomic nerve abnormality results in an over production of gastric acid which lead to intestinal mucosal membrane injury, stomach wall hemorrhage, and gastric and duodenal ulcers. Acetic acid (also found in vinegar) is mildly alkaline so taking acetic acid can neutralize strong acids and alleviate ulcers caused by excessive gastric juice.

In times of low gastric acid production, the acetic acid in vinegar can play the role of gastric acid and help in the digestion and absorption of food. At the same time, its antibacterial properties promote the healing of the affected areas.

6. Facilitates calcium absorption

The smell, taste and composition of vinegar can stimulate alimentary organs / digestive system and enhance digestion and absorption of nutrients in food. Vinegar also improves the breakdown of food into its nutritious components for easy absorption by the body. For example, calcium and vinegar can combine into calcium acetate that is easily absorbed by the body. In this way, vinegar helps the body absorb more calcium. The citric acid in vinegar enters the body and promotes the full utilisation of calcium by the body; the results are stronger bones, less mood swings, and a better night’s sleep.

7. Fights obesity

Most weight loss medications on the market fight obesity by suppressing the absorption of calories, but this can lead to poor nutrient uptake and have adverse effects on health. Consuming vinegar assists calorie burning while maintaining adequate nutrient intake. When food is consumed, the digestion process converts sugar into glucose, oil and fat into fatty acids, and protein into amino acids. These nutrients require acetic acid (available in vinegar) to act as a catalyst before they can enter the citric acid cycle to be converted into energy for the body. In the absence of acetic acid as a catalyst, these nutrients will turn into fat and be stored in our body. Consuming vinegar not only improves digestion and nutrient absorption, but it also boosts metabolism and caloric expenditure for optimised energy – so no excess calories are left to be converted to fat.

8. Eases constipation

Vinegar improves metabolism and promotes the excretion of waste from the body. It also supports intestinal elasticity and the production of carbonic acid that facilitates bowel movement. Some people who consume highly concentrated vinegar are even known to excrete oil from their body during bowel movement, and this phenomenon can be attributed to the ability of vinegar to break down fats.

9. Beautifies the skin and improves complexion

Lipid peroxidation refers to the oxidative degradation of lipids. It is the process whereby free radicals “steal” electrons from the lipids in cell membranes, resulting in cell damage and causing signs of ageing . Vinegar helps prevent lipid peroxidation, promote skin metabolism and prevent the production of brown spots, keeping skin fair, young, and healthy.

In short, vinegar can alleviate a host of skin conditions including dermatitis, brown spots, acne , eczema, etc . by improving metabolism, blood circulation, and fat metabolism in the skin.

10. Prevents diabetes

The number of diabetic patients is rising in many countries all over the world. The major reasons for this are an imbalanced diet, insufficient exercise as well as poor lifestyle habits and increasing stress at work.

Sugar, protein and fat that our body absorbs are burned to produce energy. Insulin is needed for the absorption of glucose (converted from sugar) into cells. However, when there is insufficient insulin, this glucose remains in the blood stream instead of being absorbed into cells and is then excreted from the body via urine, causing excessive sweet urine (glycosuria) or diabetes mellitus.

Consuming large amounts of vinegar (acetic acid) on a regular basis can increase the activity of acetic acid in the body. This enhances the citric acid cycle and converts glucose into energy for full utilisation by cells. In this way, vinegar helps solve diabetic problems caused by incomplete glucose metabolism in the body.

11. Prevents cold & flu

The best way to prevent a cold or flu is by strengthening the body’s immune system. The abundance of vitamins found in vinegar can help prevent cold and flu and reduce fatigue. Vitamin A is closely related to the formation of glycoprotein which helps moisten the mucous membrane and prevent the invasion of filterable viruses. Vinegar’s preventive powers are enhanced when taken in conjunction with a diet high in yellow-green vegetables. Vinegar is also rich in Vitamin C that is good for suppressing the flu virus and the spread of infection. The Vitamin B1 in vinegar reduces fatigue, fights cold and flu and maintains optimal bodily functions.

12. Reduces hangovers

As vinegar can accelerate the citric acid cycle, taking concentrated vinegar before and after drinking alcohol helps prevent drunkenness and cure hangovers. The consumed alcohol is rapidly broken down in the citric acid cycle, relieving your liver from the stress of breaking down alcohol.

QUICK LINK TO THE SOLUTION & FAQS


Your Personal Firewall Against An Acidic Body – Understanding the Citric Acid Cycle – Part 3

You may know have read that consuming vinegar can reduce fatigue, aid digestion, relieve aches, and alleviate body acidity, but not many people understand the mechanism behind this.

In 1953, a British scientist, Professor Hans Adolf Krebs won the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine with his discovery that is now called the Kreb’s Cycle Theory.

This marked the beginning of the understanding of how vinegar can enhance health by improving digestion, breaking down and converting food into energy. According to Kreb’s theory, the starch and sugar in the food we eat is converted into glucose, the fats are converted into fatty acids, the protein in meat and beans is converted into more than 20 types of amino acids.


All these nutrients must be combined with acetic acid (from vinegar) before they can enter the citric acid cycle. In this citric acid cycle, these nutrients are converted into energy (adenosine triphosphate, ATP) that can be utilised by the body. During the conversion process, the food is continuously converted into citric acid, which is then converted into cis-Acotinate, isocitrate, ketoglutarate, succinate, fumarate, malate and oxaloacetate. The cycle repeats itself when the acids are converted back to citric acid.

Maintaining this citric acid cycle is very important, but the cycle cannot function properly if the body is tired or restricted by an improper diet. When the nutrients are not fully synthesized, the incomplete combustion residue will be converted into pyruvate, which will break down into lactic acid when exposed to hydrogen ion. The accumulation of lactic acid in the body results in muscle aches, pain in the nerves and lethargy. The accumulation of lactic acid in the blood stream results in an acidic body; which is a magnet for chronic diseases. QUICK LINK TO THE SOLUTION & FAQS


Your Personal Firewall Against An Acidic Body – Vinegar The Master of pH Balancing – Part 1

“Vinegar” – the master of pH balancing – Sir Hans Adolf Krebs (Dr. Krebs), awarded the Nobel Prize in 1953 and 1964, proved that the modern man’s diet contains too much animal fat, protein, and high calorie foods that can lead to an acidic body.

To combat the problem, “pH balancing” has become one of the most important daily tasks for healthy living. The basic principle of good health is to keep the pH level of the body slightly alkaline (between pH 7.35 and pH 7.45), so the body is best able to fend off disease.

Vinegar is one of the food products that can rapidly improve the blood acid level. In just 2 hours, it can bring your body back to a healthy alkaline level, possibly saving your life!

Vinegar is your good friend in your pursuit of good healthPrevention is better than cure, and a stitch in time saves nine – the same applies to our health. If we wait till disease strikes before we pay attention to health, it’s too late. Focus on prevention can cut down on pain, suffering and medical bills.
According to a study by the World Health Organization (WHO), modern medical science can only identify 10% of the symptoms of diseases; the other 90% of disease symptoms are hidden and cannot be identified with our current technology and methods. There are so many different health care products on the market, why choose vinegar? The reason is that vinegar has a broad range of benefits, ranging from slimming, improving metabolism, reducing urea acid, alleviating hangovers, lightening the skin, removing blemishes, balancing body pH level, etc.
Vinegar can quickly return the body to a healthy alkaline level, and help maintain this level, so it promotes cell revitalization and reduces the chances of contracting diseases.
Chronic diseases strike vegetarians too, albeit at a lower rate than non-vegetarians. Many monks, priests and sages consume large quantities of vinegar to maintain good health as vinegar can aid in the breaking down of grain and vegetable proteins. Especially in those suffering from anaemia due to nutrition imbalance, vinegar can break down the consumed nutrients, so that they can be easily and quickly absorbed by the body.
The faster the nutrient uptake, the faster the body’s health improves. Vinegar is known as the antidote to an acidic body, and highly concentrated vinegar can effectively protect a person from chronic diseases.
Vinegar can be a blessing to your health! QUICK LINK TO THE SOLUTION & FAQ

Nutrition Intelligence – Glossary – Antioxidants, Vitamins, Phytochemicals

Glossary of Terms you may find useful. Got something you can add? Just post a comment with the details.

A

Antioxidants Group of nutrients (vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phyto-nutrients, phyto-chemicals) which help protect your body from free radicals (caused by normal body functions, aging, pollutants, pesticides, antibiotic use and other factors).

Adaptogen – That which helps boost, balance and normalize functions in your body.

B

Bioflavanoids – Sometimes referred to as Vitamin P, these help to enhance the absorption of Vitamin C. The human body does not produce these so they must be supplied by your diet. They help to promote circulation, stimulate bile production, and act with Vitamin C to preserve and protect the structure of capillary blood vessels.

D

Demulcent – Helps to soothe and relieve internal inflammation.

E

Emollient – Helps to soothe and soften inflamed tissue

F

Free Radicals – A single or group of unstable molecules/atoms that can cause damage to cells, leading to breakdown and disease. Visualize and apple – when you cut it and leave the cut surface exposed to air.It turns brown, almost like it’s rusting. Oxidization has occurred. In a similar way unstable oxygen molecules in your body are the free radicals that cause your unprotected organs to “rust” and breakdown.

P

Phytochemicals – Literally meaning “plant chemicals”, phytochemicals are protective food factors derived from a variety of plant sources. Phtyochemicals have powerful health benefits. Whenever there is plant life, phytochemicals protect plants from attack by their enemies in the environment, like bacteria, viruses, radiation and insects. Research is now showing that we can benefit from these life-sustaining qualities as well. Good news for us. Plants have been in existence much longer than man and know much more about survival. Research indicates that phytochemicals can provide protection against some types of cancer.

T

Tonic – A product that is strengthening and invigorating.

Vitamins really deserve there own glossary! Vitamins are organic chemicals that are necessary for growth, metabolism, and overall health and well-being. Vitamins originate in food, and are categorized as either fat soluble (meaning they can be stored in the body for long periods of time) OR water soluble (these pass easily through our bodies, cannot be stored, must be replenished daily).

Vitamin A – Also known as Beta Carotene, a fat-soluble vitamin essential for cell growth, development, reproduction, and immunity. It is stored primarily in the liver and is considered one of the most potent antioxidants.

Vitamin B1 – Also known as Thiamine, a water-soluble vitamin, beneficial to the nervous system. It helps to convert blood sugar (glucose) into energy.

Vitamin B2 – Also known as Riboflavin, a water-soluble vitamin which helps with energy production. It must be replaced constantly. It is the most common deficiency.

Vitamin B3 – Also known as Niacin, a water-soluble vitamin, a major player against heart disease. It helps to lower cholesterol and high blood pressure.

Vitamin B6 – Also known as Pyridoxine, this water-soluble vitamin goes through the body in only 8 hours. It is needed for red-blood cell production and cellular growth. It also plays a key role in the immune system and antibody production.

Vitamin B12 – Also known as Cyanocobalamin, a water-soluble vitamin known for its energizing capabilities. It is essential for nerve tissue, promotes growth, memory and regenerates red blood cells.

Vitamin B15 – Also known as Pantothenic Acid, this water-soluble vitamin helps protect against cardiovascular disease as ell as helping with symptoms of arthritis. It helps encourage healing, protects the liver and immune system.

Biotin -This water-soluble vitamin is essential for the metabolism of vitamin C, fat and protein. It helps with healthy hair, skin and nails.

Vitamin C – This water-soluble vitamin is essential for formation of collagen (exists between cells to hold tissue together). It is necessary for growth and integrity of bones, blood vessels, teeth and gums. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and has many powerful properties; anti-cancer, prevention of blood clots.

Vitamin D – This is a fat-soluble vitamin that the skin can produce on its own when exposed to direct sunlight. In only 15 minutes a day, your body can manufacture all it needs. It is not very abundant in food, and is stored in the liver for future use.

Vitamin E – This fat-soluble vitamin is stored in many places; the heart, liver, reproductive organs, fatty tissue, and muscles. It basically works for the nervous system. It is a potent antioxidant, and helps to combat heart disease, by keeping good cholesterol (HDL) high, blood thin and blood pressure low.

What Makes Our Rice Bran Different?

Rice bran contains a lipase enzyme that causes rancidity within hours after harvesting so traditionally it has been removed and discarded or used as animal feed.

Rice Bran is an amazing storehouse of health-enhancing nutrients and antioxidants, but until recently its nutritional power was not fully available because it became oxidized right after milling (making it rancid and unfit for human consumption) or it was treated with high heat or chemicals (which kills the nutrients). Now, with NutraCea®s patented, proprietary technology, rice bran can be stabilized without high heat or chemicals, and we can finally enjoy the true power of rice bran.

NutraCea ® from USA Arizona-based is the only manufacturer in the world that has successfully

  • Stabilized rice bran by inactivating the lipase enzymes within seconds after harvesting
  • Performed the whole stabilisation process without using chemicals or high heat treatments that degrade the nutritional profile.

What is in Stabilized Rice Bran?

If it is stabilized WITHOUT high heat or chemicals, rice bran contains:

Protein — stabilized rice bran contains easily digested, hypoallergenic essential amino acids that are necessary for building human protein. These include Tryptophan, Histidine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Isoleucine, Lysine, Valine, and Leucine.

Complex Carbohydrates — unlike simple carbohydrates which can add to blood sugar and fat storage problems, healthy complex carbohydrates like those found in stabilized rice bran have a “low glycemic index” which means that they don’t cause spikes in your blood sugar. In fact, stabilized rice bran has been found to help normalise blood sugar.

Fibre — stabilized rice bran contains soluble and insoluble fibres necessary for optimum digestive health, blood sugar regulation, lowered cholesterol, and the prevention of diabetes and heart disease.

Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) — Omegas 3, 6 & 9 help to strengthen cellular membranes (so the bad stays out and the good stays inside cells). They also help with energy production (eliminating fatigue); transporting oxygen to the cells; removing waste from the cells; regulating hormones; reducing inflammation, pain and stiffness; reducing LDL “bad” cholesterol & increasing HDL “good” cholesterol, on top of improving your complexion, mood, memory & concentration!

Enzymes — including Glutathione Peroxidase, Methionine Reductase, Polyphenol Oxidase, energy enhancing, immune boosting CoQ10, Aspartate Amino Transferase Isozyme AAT-1 & AAT-2, Catalase, and Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), which is an exceptionally powerful antioxidant.

Tocotrienols & Tocopherols (Complete Vitamin E family) — Tocols as a complete group are much more powerful than regular vitamin E. They are great for your cardiovascular system, your immune system, and your complexion! Stablized rice bran contains a-Tocopherol, b-Tocopherol, g-Tocopherol, d-Tocopherol, a-Tocotrienol, ß-Tocotrienol, g-Tocotrienol, d-Tocotrienol, Desmethyl-tocotrienol, and Didesmethyl tocotrienol.

Phytosterols and Sterolins (phytosterols glucosides) — these are natural phytonutrients with healthful properties that range from helping to fight free radicals, prevent cancer, reduce blood sugar and blood lipid levels, lower cholesterol and ease menopausal symptoms. Stabilized rice bran contains ß-Sitosterol, Campesterol, Stigmasterol,?5-Avinasterol, ?7-Stigmastenol, Sterol glucoside, Acylsterol glucoside, Oligoglycosylsterol, Gramisterol,Monoglycosylsterol, Dimethylsterol, Cellotetraosylsitosterol, Branosterol, Isofucosterol, Obtusifoliol, Sitostenol,Methylsterol, 28-Homosteasteronicacids, ß-Amyrin, 28-Homotyphasterol, Citrostadienol, and 6-Deoxycastasterone,

Calcium — which helps build strong bones, teeth and muscles; promotes healthy nervous system; has a calming effect on the nervous system; helps with proper functioning of the heart, muscles, and nervous system; and plays a role in maintaining normal blood pressure, regulating blood clotting, preventing cancers of the digestive tract and decreasing mood swings, food cravings, and the pain, tenderness and bloating associated with premenstrual syndrome.

Magnesium — which is an essential element for proper functioning of the nervous, muscular and cardiovascular systems. It also helps with nerve and muscle functioning, helps relieve cramps and PMS, aids in bone formation, regulates heartbeat and helps to normalise blood pressure.

Potassium — which helps to regulate fluid balance, heart rhythms and blood pressure and helps with mental function by sending oxygen to the brain. It is required for the proper functioning of the heart, kidneys, muscles, nerves, and digestive system.

Gamma Oryzanol Complex — this amazing anti-mutagenic group includes Campesterol Trans-ferulate, Cycloartenol Trans-ferulate, Cycloartenol Cis-ferulate, Cycloeucalenol Trans-ferulate, Cycloeucalenol Cis-ferulate, Stigmasterol Trans-ferulate, 24-Methylenecycloartanol Trans-ferulate, 24-Methylenecycloartanol Cis-ferulate, ß-Sitosterol Trans-ferulate, ß-Sitosterol Cis-ferulate, ß-Sitostenol Trans-ferulate,21 ß-Sitostenol Cis-ferulate, Stigmasterol Cis-ferulate, Stigmastenol Cis-ferulate, Campesterol Cis-ferulate, Cycloartanol Trans-ferulate, Cycloartanol Cis-ferulate, Stigmastenol Trans-ferulate, 24-Methylcholesterol Trans-ferulate, and 24-Methylcholesterol Cis-ferulate. These help boost immune response, reduce inflammation, increase energy, metabolise glucose, regulate blood sugar, and more!

Polyphenols — including Ferulic acid, a-Lipoic acid, Methyl ferulate, ?-Coumaric acid, ?-Sinapic acid, Isovitexin, Proanthocyanidins. These have been shown to assist the immune system and to reduce the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Metal Chelators — including Magnesium, Manganese, Phosphorous, Potassium and Inositol Hexaphosphate (IP6). Getting heavy metals helps to ensure that antioxidants don’t “turn to the dark side” and become pro-oxidised free radicals.

Carotenoids — very effective free radical scavengers including Lutein, a-Carotene, ß-Carotene, Lycopene, Zeaxanthine, and Crytocyanthine.

B-Vitamins & Vitamin-like substances — including Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Pantothenic acid, Pyridoxine, Betaine, Dimethyl glycine, Inositol, Biotin, Choline, Folic acid, and Phytates. These can help prevent cancer and prohibit cholesterol buildup, support adrenal function, calm and maintain the nervous system, and assist in key metabolic processes.

Polysaccharides — including Cycloartenol-ferulic acid glycoside, Diferulic acid complex, Diferulic acid-calcium complex, Hemicelluloses, Arabinogalactan, Arabinoxylan, Xyloglucan, Proteoglycan, Glycoprotein, Arabinofuranoside. These are known to help immune function lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and increase coronary artery capacity.

Phospholipids — including Phosphatidylserine, PhosphatidylCholine, Phosphatidylethanolamine, Lysophophatidylcholine, Lysophosphatidylethanolamine. Phospholipids help support the growth and renewal of cellular membranes, forming an important barrier to filter toxins out. They also act as cellular antioxidants when free radical “bullets” try to penetrate the cell. Phospholipids are also thought to prevent depletion of the neurotransmitter choline, improving mental focus, brain function, and both mental and physical stamina.

Nn Stabilized Rice Bran & ORAC

Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) measures the antioxidant levels of a substance. A high ORAC score means the substance is high in antioxidants.

Nn Stabilized Rice Bran’s ORAC value surpasses that of other antioxidant-rich fruits, including blueberries and pomegranates.
