Organic Springtime Horsetail

Silica in its chelated form, is an essential nutrient for normal growth and development, and must be supplied continuously from food sources. In the human body, it is found in the collagen of skin, hair and nails, and in the connective tissue of the joints and bones.

The average human body holds approximately seven grams of silica (a quantity far exceeding the figure for iron). Silica plays an important role in many bodily functions, and it has a direct relationship to mineral absorption.

It is responsible for cross-linking collagen strands, which is critical for the strength of the l connective tissue matrix of the body.
With increasing age and/or a silica deficient diet, the human body requires larger amounts of silica to assist prevention.

Lack of silica has a direct influence on the degenerative process, and will show up as lowered elasticity and strength of the skin, less shiny hair and splitting nails. Supplementation with organic vegetal silica extract as in Original® Silica helps to reverse this process and strengthen the matrix of the skin and the bone’s structure, as well as hair and nails. Any excess silica is readily eliminated through the kidneys.

PRODUCT HISTORY
Produced from springtime Horsetail plants, in which the silica is chelated with water soluble bioflavonoids, and it can therefore be utilized to almost 100% by the body. It is furthermore processed according to the French professor Louis Kervran’s patented formula for extraction, using water only, no solvents.

The water extraction method neutralizes harmful enzymes in the silica, such as thiaminase, and it eliminates the risk of solvent residue contamination in the silica extract.

NOTE: some silica formulations on the market, both extracts and powdered whole plants, are of the non-organic type, described earlier, with little or no content of organic water soluble silica.

MINERAL FACTS
Silicon, in the form of silica, is one of the most abundant elements on earth, making up 40% of the earth’s crust, and is an essential mineral for all living organisms. Silica plays an important part in the metabolism of many plants.

A rich supply of natural, organic silicates can be found in Equisetum arvense, the Horsetail plant. In the springtime this plant “transforms” most of its mineral silica into an organic form, through chelation with water soluble bioflavonoids. Only this form can be assimilated by man.

Good food sources of silica are unprocessed whole grains, such as barley, rye, wheat, oats and millet. Other sources are potatoes, corn, beets, asparagus and artichokes.

Bilberry – Benefits for your eyes

Bilberry has shown to help improve night vision, relieve visual fatigue and protect the eye against glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration, as well as other circulatory-related conditions.

The active constituents of the bilberry fruit have been identified as anthocyanidin glycosides, commonly called anthocyanosides. (For analytical purposes, the anthocyanosides content usually is expressed in
terms of anthocyanidin.

An anthocyanidin content of 25% is equal to 37% anthocyanosides). These anthocyanosides are bioflavonoids responsible for the red to blue colors in many berries and flowers. By
using GLC-MS and HPLC technique, it has become possible to produce highly standardized extracts.

bilberry_night_vision

Anthocyanosides have the ability to crosslink collagen fibers, thus strengthening the collagen matrix and decreasing the permeability of capillary walls, thereby reducing and preventing capillary leakage.

For this reason bilberry can be effective in protecting the eyes against glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration, which are caused by the breakdown of collagen in the capillary walls and other tissues in the eyes, and by “leaky” blood vessels in the macular region of the eye.

Bilberry is the European version of the blueberry, known scientifically as Vaccinium myrtillus. It has a long tradition as a herbal remedy and a nutritious food.

The most notable discovery leading to the contemporary use of bilberry for the eyes occurred during World War II, when the British RAF pilots found that using bilberry jam before their night missions improved their dark adaptation and their visual acuity In the last 30 years, researchers have found bilberry extract to be an impressive microcirculation enhancer.

bilberry_improve_vision

It helps strengthen the capillaries, and it decreases the permeability of blood vessels. It also acts as a powerful anti-oxidant, improving the flexibility of cell membranes and inhibiting damage to the eyes caused by free radicals.

Bilberry furthermore aids the eye’s adaptation to darkness by accelerating the regeneration of visual purple. The very first clinical study for the use of bilberry in ophthalmology was conducted in 1964 (Jayle and Aubert).

It showed a marked improvement in the retinal adaptation curve in healthy subjects. Several studies in France involving air traffic controllers, helicopter pilots and night drivers also demonstrated a clear improvement in night vision.

Other double-blind clinical studies show that anthocyanosides significantly improve visual disorders by reducing myodesopsy, photopsy and visual fatigue. Bilberry has become one of the most common herbal pharmaceuticals in Europe, due to its efficacy and
complete safety.

Dental Plaque – An Overview

Research has shown that plaque must be controlled in order to combat gum disease and periodontal disease. Furthermore, by reducing plaque, dental decay can be kept to a minimum.

Couple a lifetime of good plaque control and total oral hygiene and dental decay becomes almost nonexistent. Reduced plaque also has very pronounced positive effect on plaque build-up in the arteries, with beneficial consequences on cardiovascular disease and heart attacks as well as on diseases states and health status in general.

Total Oral Hygiene means good Total Health!

STAGE 1: WHAT IS PLAQUE?

Plaque is a clear, sticky film, an invisible layer of microorganisms growing in colonies, which adheres to the surfaces of teeth, gum tissues, dental restorations, and even the tongue – and then further “into” the body: the arteries, the heart, etc.. It is so adherent, that it can not be washed or rinsed off, but must be mechanically removed.

Plaque contains a variety of bacteria, some also producing strong acids, that can cause dental decay (cavities/caries) by dissolving the minerals that make up the tooth enamel (tiny holes appear that get bigger and bigger until there is a cavity), contribute to calculus (tartar) formation, and initiate the inflammatory response associated with periodontal disease, some producing dangerous and poisonous toxins.

There are different stages of plaque formation: The first stage is the Pellicle Formation, subdivided in turn into four stages:

  1. The surfaces are bathed with salivary fluids
  2. Salivary Glycoproteins (positively and negatively charged) adsorb to the surfaces.
  3. This probably occurs due to ionic interaction.
  4. The Glycoproteins lose their solubility
  5. The Glycoproteins become altered by the action of the bacterial enzymes

The next stage is the Bacterial Colonization. At this stage the bacteria borne in the saliva are brought in contact with the organic dental pellicle, either physically or more often through some type of chemically complicated interaction.

Protein molecules on the bacterial cell surfaces recognize and link to the pellicle glycoproteins – and plaque is formed! The Final stage is the Maturation of Plaque. As plaque matures it increases in mass and thickness. Its microbiological composition also changes. Mature plaque is potentially more pathogenic.

noplaque_dental_health
WHAT IS THE CHEMICAL COMPOSITION OF PLAQUE?

Plaque is composed of glycoproteins from the saliva, various bacteria and bacterial metabolism products and minerals and their ions.

PLAQUE FORMS QUICKLY

Plaque forms again soon after it is removed and effective plaque control will keep it to a minimum. It takes approx. 21 days for plaque to completely mature.

That’s why you are encouraged to brush your teeth and rinse your mouth 4-5 times a day, plus daily flossing, to prevent plaque from maturing into calculus/tartar.

IN REGARDS TO PLAQUE NO ONE IS CREATED EQUAL – NOT EVEN THE SAME MOUTH!

The rate plaque forms and what it’s made of, varies from individual to individual. In fact, it varies in different parts of the same mouth.

Studies have shown that plaque affects each of us differently – some are more susceptible to the bacterial components in the plaque than others. That explains why individuals have different healing responses to periodontal treatment.

WHAT’S THE FIRST SIGN OF A PLAQUE ATTACK?

A frequent warning sign is when the edge of the gums next to the teeth, become reddened and inflamed, and bleed when touched. This early stage is known as Gingivitis and takes three weeks to form when all oral hygiene measures are suspended.

Gingivitis is a reversible condition. With diligent flossing and tooth brushing, Gingivitis usually disappears. Left untreated, it can progress into periodontal disease.

Periodontal disease is defined as the formation of pockets (loss of gum attachment to the teeth) and the loss of bone that supports the teeth. Periodontal disease is a chronic disease that can result in tooth loss.

In fact, periodontal disease is the main reason adults have teeth removed, as well as many other serious disease like heart attacks, Cancer and many other (inflammatory) diseases!

Why DHEA might change your life

Dehydroepiandrosterone, DHEA, is a natural hormone produced primarily by the adrenal gland. It circulates in the body in its water-soluble form, called DHEA-sulfate or DHEAS. First isolated in 1934, it has, for many years been considered of little importance.

dhea_dehydroepiandrosterone

It is now known to be an essential component in a vast number of physiological functions in the body, including metabolic conversion to both male and female sex hormones (androgens and estrogens), and to have an inverse relationship to the production of stress hormones.

As levels of stress hormones rise, levels of DHEA drop. Blood levels of DHEA start rising before puberty and usually peak between the ages of twenty and thirty. At that time DHEA is the most abundant hormone in the body.

Unlike other adrenal steroids, such as cortisol, DHEA begins to steadily decline with age, suggesting that DHEA may be a measure of the aging process itself.

DHEA levels have been found to be higher in healthy individuals than in unhealthy men and women, which has initiated research linking DHEA to healthy aging.

dhea_health

More than 5000 research papers have appeared over the last three decades, suggesting a connection between DHEA levels and a great variety of diseases.

DHEA is currently the focus for some of the most interesting medical research of this century. DHEA does not seem to be controlled by a “feedback loop”, as with other hormones, and supplementation is not likely to stop the body’s own production.

Convince yourself of DHEA – DeHydroEpiAndrosterone – The Fountain of Youth.
