Agaricus Blazei mushroom is as important a finding as was penicillin in the 1920’s. Modern research is showing that the main medicinal properties of this mushroom are anti-tumor and immune enhancement. In almost all of the studies published to date, the rate of tumor remission for all types of cancer has been amazingly high! Most of these studies have been done with rats or guinea pigs, but the hope is that results should be similar in humans. The largest and most complete human trials today are being done in China and Japan. Some of the more important active ingredients are: Beta-(1-3)-D-glucan, Beta-(1-4)-a -D-glucan & Beta – (1-6)-D-glucan. Known collectively as Beta-glucans, these substances are the most potent immunopotentiating (immune enhancing) substances yet found. They also have very powerful anti-tumor properties. It is thought by most scientists that the anti-tumor properties of these chemicals are directly resultant from the immune enhancement. That is, the beta-glucans do not directly cause the anti-tumor effect, but rather they trigger the bodies’ own anti-tumor response. This is relatively easy to measure, as the human body produces a type of anti-tumor white blood cell known as Natural Killer cells (NK cells). When human subjects are given BLAZEI in their diet, a 3000% increase of NK cells in the blood is seen within 2-4 days.

Ergosterol derivatives, also known as provitamine D2 is a potent anti-tumor agent.

Double stranded RNA – Anti-viral agent.

Proteoglucans and Protein bound Polysaccharides (low molecular weight) – Immune enhancement.

Protein bound polysaccharides of high molecular weight (referred to in the literature as “ATOM”) – provide a host-mediated anti cancer response against at least four different types of cancer in tests conducted at the Mei University School of Medicine in Japan. (ATOM)

Natural Cleansing to Promote Colon Health

Tags: , ,

When your colon isn’t working right, you can feel it right away – even though you may not know it’s your colon that’s bothering you. Colon problems can cause aching muscles, joint pain, fatigue, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, headaches, dull eyes, poor skin, spots and depression.

The inflammation from it can spread through your body and get into your blood. In fact, having a digestive system that’s toxic to your body is one of the main reasons people are chronically ill.

The typical American diet of refined sugars, starches and low-fiber foods produces a kind of sludge, creating a buildup and narrowing your colon. This buildup is the perfect breeding ground for all kinds of harmful bacteria and parasites. It also rubs and pushes against the walls of your colon, making them irritated and inflamed.

That’s why it’s critical to eat foods that clear out the colon regularly. Most Americans don’t do this, which may be why an estimated 100,000 people will be diagnosed with colon cancer this year.

A diet high in fiber is the best way to ensure optimal colon health. But the mainstream medical approach on this is misguided. You shouldn’t be eating a lot of cereal to get your fiber, or taking grain-based laxative products (which we’re told over and over is the best way to care for the digestive tract).

In fact, a study released a few weeks ago found that the non-rice cereals we eat increase colon cancer risk. It also found that those who eat the least fruit – which has natural fiber – have an increased risk, too.

When it comes to fiber, you should use what is natural and has been in our diet since primordial times. Before grains were domesticated.

Nature has given us all of the natural fiber we’ll ever need in fruits, nuts and vegetables. Here are some of the best sources of natural fiber:

Food Portion Dietary Fiber (grams) Soluble(grams) Insoluble (grams)
Fruits
Apple 1 Medium 2.9 0.9 2.0
Orange 1 Medium 2.0 1.3 0.7
Banana 1 Medium 2.0 0.6 1.4
Vegetables
Broccoli 1 stalk 2.7 1.3 1.4
Carrots 1 large 2.9 1.3 1.6
Tomato 1 small 0.8 0.1 0.7
Legumes
Green Peas 2/3 cup cooked 3.9 0.6 3.3
Kidney Beans 1/2 cup cooked 6.5 1.6 4.9
Pinto Beans 1/2 cup cooked 5.9 1.2 4.7
Lentils 2/3 cup cooked 4.5 0.6 3.9

If you can’t get enough fiber through the food you eat, an effective colon cleanse can release years of toxic buildup and reduce your risk of developing chronic diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome. It will prevent the toxins from overloading your colon, digestive system and blood stream.

Joint Savior is a comprehensive formula designed to help with joint mobility, inflammation, and pain. Joint Savior™ contains the popular Glucosamine, Chondroitin & MSM formula with 2 other effective ingredients CMO (Cetyl Myristoleate) and Hyaluronic Acid.

Glucosamine & Chondroitin

Glucosamin & Chondroitin have been a popular combination for joint support for the past 10 years. Glucosamine comes from the exoskeletons of crabs, shrimp & other shellfish. Glucosamine Sulfate has been used clinically in Europe since 1960’s and became popular in the US during the mid-1990’s after the release of the book “The Arthritis Cure” by Jason Theodosakis. Today Glucosamine is the most popular nutritional supplement with annual sales of more than $200 million a year.

The largest clinical trial on Glucosamine Sulfate & Chondroitin is being conducted by the National Institute of Health (NIH) with over 1,500 people involved. The studies found positive results with a 25% improvement as the placebo group. The positive results of the clinical trial not only showed a reduction in pain and swelling but also when combined with Chondroitin it slowed the progression of the disease and helped rebuild damaged cartilage.

Methyl-Sulfonyl-Methane (MSM)

MSM came from the research that was done on DMSO by Dr. Stanley W. Jacobs at the Oregon Health Science University. He learned that MSM was a stable metabolite of DMSO which was very stable and odorless.

A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was conducted. Fifty men and women, 40-76 years of age with knee OA pain were enrolled in an outpatient medical center. MSM produced significant decreases in WOMAC (Western Ontario and McMaster University Osteoarthritis Index visual analogue scale) pain and physical function impairment (P<0.05).¹

Cetyl Myristoleate (CMO)

Harry Diehl, a research chemist at the NIH, discovered Cetyl Myristoleate after spending 2 years trying to isolate the substance that protected Swiss albino mice from getting arthritis. Harry Diehl proved that cetyl myristoleate circulates in the blood of mice that made them immune to arthritis. Harry Diehl was so ecstatic about his discovery he approached many large pharmaceutical companies to conduct human clinical trials on CMO. None of the companies were interested, however, because CMO was a natural substance and they would not be able to patent it.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid (also called Hyaluronan) occurs in large amounts in many of the places that people with connective tissue disorders have problems such as the joints, the eyes, the skin, and heart valves. Hyaluronic acid is needed to cushion and lubricate joints, eyes, skin, and heart valves.

A study published in the February 2007 issue of food and Chemical Toxicology has confirmed the safety of oral hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a dietary supplement that supports connect tissue health in joints and skin. The research was comprised of two oral toxicity studies involving acute and subchronic tests. Test subjects exhibited no toxicity, even at 33 times the recommended dose, as observed by a review of a variety of biomarkers and histopathological examinations.²

  • Promotes Immune System Health
  • Shown to Produce Anti-tumor Effects

NutraceuticsRx CoriolusPure™ is the most potent Coriolus Versicolor Mushroom extract on the planet!

Chinese medicine has promoted this mushroom for its energizing and healing properties for thousands of years. Chinese legend is filled with stories of those who discovered the mushroom and became immortal. In the West, acceptance is based less on tradition and more on the results of the scientific method. Researchers have documented that mushrooms are some of the most potent medicines on the plant. Recent research findings have shown the Coriolus versicolor mushroom stands out above the rest for regulating the immune system.

Coriolus versicolor found to be effective against cancer and human papillomavirus

Researchers at the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York tested several botanicals for their immune enhancing activity using a subcutaneous immunization model of cell surface carbohydrate expression in cancer cells in a study published in September, 2008 Vaccine. They found Coriolus versicolor to display consistent and significant immune enhancement activity superior to all other coumpounds tested. The superiority of Coriolus to yeast beta-glucan, maitake, turmeric, echinacea, and preparation H-48 from Honso USA, was described as surprising. Although the exhibited levels of immune enhancing ability of astragalus was also impressive, it was surpassed by that of Coriolus.

The March, 2008 BMC Cancer reports Coriolus versicolor has shown anticancer activity with positive results in the treatment of gastric, esophageal, colorectal, breast and lung cancers. The efficacy of its protein-bound polysaccharide as an immunomodulator is credited. This activity was independent of its previously described immunomodulatory effect on NK cells.

The journal Cancer Immunology and Immunotherapy reports double blind trials on 111 patients with colorectal cancer, using Coriolus versicolor. Although traditional medicine offers little help for colon cancer patients, Coriolus showed a remarkable enhancement of the patient’s white blood cells, even in advanced colon cancer cases. The white cells greatly increased natural chemotactic motion and phagocytosis, the ability to scavenge toxins and kill pathogens. Coriolus was also used with patients as a helpful maintenance therapy following cancer surgery.

The results of a year long clinical trial examining the effects of mushroom supplementation in patients with Human Papillomavirus (HPV) were so impressive they were presented in 2008 at the 20th European Congress of Obstetrics and Gynocology. Dr. Silva Couto and his research team found that Coriolus versicolor supplementation over the period of one year substantially increased regression of dysplasia and induced clearance of the high-risk subtypes of the HPV responsible for cervical cancer. Coriolus supplementation demonstrated a 72 percent regression rate in lesions compared to 47.5 percent without supplementation, and a 90 percent regression rate in the high risk HPV virus sub-types compared to 8.5 percent without.

After using the supplement for one year, 72.5 percent of recipients reverted to normal cytology compared with only 47.5 percent of the control group. Coriolus supplementation produced a 90 percent regression rate in the high risk HPV virus sub-tupes compared to an 8.5 percent regression without supplementation.

What makes Coriolus versicolor special?

Coriolus versicolor, also referred to as the turkey-tail mushroom, contains large quantities of Beta-glucans that act to stimulate the immune system. Coriolus can dramatically regenerate and rejuvenate the body. Its most active medicinal components are biological response modifiers called protein-bound polysaccharides. These polysaccharides are known as Krestin or PSK in Japan, and as Yun zhi, or PSP in China. There have been reports of cases of Bell’s palsy clearing up with use of Coriolus for just a few days. Others have found it effective against bronchitis.

Other studies have shown that Coriolus can double the number of natural killer cells after only 8 weeks of treatment. Coriolus has also been found to help patients with chronic fatigue syndrome and may be an effective treatment for Lyme disease.

More research documents the anti-tumor benefits of Coriolus

Japanese researchers screened 200 of the best phytochemicals (plant extracts) known for anti-tumor activity. Coriolus versicolor was designated as exhibiting the greatest amount of anti-tumor activity. In another Japanese study, 185 people with lung cancer at different stages were given radiation. Doctors found those who also took Coriolus showed the best tumor shrinkage and the best survival rate. Another study involving stomach cancer patients produced similar results. Those who received Coriolus survived significantly longer, felt better and had fewer side effects.

Coriolus is first line defense against infection

Coriolus is a good centerpiece for your natural medicine chest, even if you are currently the picture of health. When any type of infection strikes, you will be ready. Coriolus can be used to target any infected organ, gland or tissue. Its immune enhancing properties provide an increased response to deal effectively with infections, and do this without over stimulating the immune system.

Flavonoids are potent antioxidants that protect the body and fight silent inflammation – the leading cause of many chronic diseases, including cancer, heart disease, stroke, dementia and others. Flavonoid-rich foods include vegetables, tea, red wine and dark chocolate.

There are more than 5,000 flavonoids, but one of the most powerful is Quercetin. It’s one of nature’s best immune boosters and antihistamines – and among the most abundant flavonoids found in food.

Quercetin fights free radicals that can damage cells. But what really makes quercetin unique is that it protects you in three ways. It’s contains antioxidant, antihistamine and anti-inflammatory power. It stops your body from boosting histamine levels when you get sick, which can reduce symptoms like a stuffy nose, congestion and more.

One recent study by The American Journal of Physiology found that quercetin can protect against the flu for immune systems under stress. Another study put Quercetin’s healing powers to the test against the common cold, when University of Michigan researchers tested Quercetin on cells infected with the rhinovirus. Quercetin stopped the virus from replicating and prevented excess inflammation.

In a study to test the strength of Quercetin and vitamin C for fighting free radicals, Quercetin was a more effective antioxidant than vitamin C. So the next time you come down with a bug, treat it with 10 mg of quercetin daily.

The easiest way to get enough Quercetin is to eat dark, leafy, greens, or other dark-colored vegetables like red onions, scallions and kale. Even capers have Quercetin. But, what you may not know is that if you cook those veggies, they lose Quercetin. So it’s best to eat them washed and raw. A good way to remember which fruits have the most Quercetin is that they have it in the skin. That means blueberries, blackberries, cherries, grapes, and, of course, apples.

You can also try supplementing. American Nutrition carries a variety of dosages of Quercetin – along with several other rare and naturalimmune-boosting herbs and nutrients.
