Dear Practitioner

Summer is almost here, despite the recent rainy weather, and we are all looking forward to dosing up on some of that natural Vitamin D. There is nothing like the great outdoors for boosting immune function and improving general health!

This month, we have a great offer for you on our AlphaClear, which is a combination of suspended micronized zeolite and Alpha lipoic acid. This product is ideal for detoxing and general cellular protection - something that can make a big difference to the success of any treatment program. We also reporting on two of our men's health products - AlphaProst and Flowease - as well as a new study on Biobran, which shows its ability to activate dendritic cells.

We are also pleased that the Max B from Quantum Labs that we carry has won the Natural & Organic Awards 2012 for the Best new VMS product.

Finally, we will be sponsoring The British Society for Integrated Oncology Conference in London next week, as well as sponsoring Prof. Rupert Handgretinger at The Cambridge Institute of Complementary Health - Cancer Convention in Birmingham in October. Maybe we will see you at one of these events.

We wish you and your patients health, vitality and blue skies,

The Really Healthy Company

 

 

AlphaClear - Detox & Immune Support

AlphaClearAlphaClear is a new detox supplement that contains Alpha Lipoic Acid, a powerful antioxidant, as well as zeolite, a volcanic detox mineral. This synergistic combination works to both detoxify the body and boost immune function, making AlphaClear an essential supplement in an increasingly toxic and stressful world.

Alpha Lipoic Acid is a powerful antioxidant that is found naturally in the body, where it is vital for neutralizing destructive by products of normal cellular metabolism called free radicals, which can damage our bodies and cause premature ageing of tissue. Production of free radicals is increased by toxins and stress. What is unique about Alpha Lipoic Acid is that it is both fat and water soluable, which means that it can provide its protection from oxidative attack throughout all regions of the body, which is why it is often called the "universal antioxidant".

Zeolite is a naturally occurring crystalline mineral formed over millions of years by the process of crystallization of volcanic ash submerged in the sea or in fresh water lakes. It has been a common ingredient in traditional Asian remedies for over a thousand years, and today it is used as a food additive, to purify water and by the pharmaceutical industry, because of its remarkable ability to absorb heavy metals and other toxins. Zeolite was even used to mop up radioactive elements after the Chernobyl disaster. The type of zeolite used in AlphaClear is clinoptilolite, a very safe form of this compound which has been given GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) status.

Each bottle of AlphaClear contains 1.5g of Alpha Lipoic Acid and a full 15g of the highest quality TMAZ zeolite, a unique type of zeolite that has undergone tribomechanical activation to ensure extremely small particle size. (This is many times the amount of zeolite contained in similar products.)

MEN'S HEALTH PRODUCTS

ALPHAPROST AND FLOWEASE

These two products can bring welcome relief to your older patients. AlphaProst supplies prostate support nutrients that can be important for middle-aged to older men, whereas Flowease supplies bladder support nutrients for older men and women who find difficulty fully emptying the bladder.

AlphaProstAlphaProst® Plus is a new formula to help men maintain a healthy prostate, containing a unique and extensive blend of herbs and nutrients well documented to ease prostate discomfort and that all have protective and anti-inflammatory effects, making it of the best all-in-one prostate-support supplements available today for men over 40 for hormone balancing, anti-inflammation, antioxidants, and immune system stimulation/regulation.. These ingredients include: Mixed Plant Sterols and Saw Palmetto Extract, both helpful in natural hormone balancing, as well as other extracts, vitamins and minerals that are important for prostate health. The reason we put such a potent variety of nutrients into this supplement is that they tend to work synergistically in the body — their combined benefit far exceeds what would be obtained by taking them separately, so that together these ingredients work synergistically to ensure the prostate remains healthy into the latter part of life.

For more detailed information, visit http://www.healthy.co.uk/products/alphaprost.html

floweaseFlowease is a premium quality flower pollen extract containing specific phytonutrient combinations that can help support the prostate and maintain healthy urination by promoting bladder health and stability. After the age of 40, urination for men can become increasingly difficult with more frequent visits to the bathroom and urinary discomfort associated with an enlarged prostate or chronic prostatitis. Clinical studies have shown this pollen extract relieves the symptoms of an enlarged prostate such as urinary frequency, prolonged voiding time, sense of incomplete voiding, poor flow, retention, urgency, incontinence and pain. It is also clinically proven to improve the size and shape of the prostate gland and reduce prostate gland inflammation.

Flowease provides relief because it has an anti-inflammatory effect on the prostate tissue, it also inhibits the binding of 5-alpha-dihydrotesterone (DHT) to prostate cells, and it is this hormone which may encourage the overgrowth. It also activates the receptors in the bladder muscle strengthening the bladder and supporting the health of the urethra making urination easier. Flower pollen has been the subject of research by Professor Jonsson of Lund University and has been found to contain over a hundred different nutritional components including: minerals, trace elements, amino acids, nucleic acids, enzymes and anti-bacterial substances.

The product also may be helpful for sufferers of interstitial cystitis and painful bladder syndrome, and is also hypoallergenic and safe for hayfever sufferers.

New Biobran Study

Activation of Human Monocyte-derived Dendritic Cells in Vitro by the Biological Response Modifier Arabinoxylan Rice Bran (MGN-3/BIOBRAN). M. Ghoneum' and S. Agrawal’z

Arabinoxylan rice bran (MGN-3/Biobran) is a potent biological response modifier (BRM) that activates natural killer (NK) cells, T cells and monocytes. Currently, little is known regarding the effects of MGN-3 on dendritic cells (DCs), the cell type that bridges innate and adaptive immunity.

Therefore, we examined the stimulatory effects of MGN-3 on DCs. Human monocyte-derived DCs were treated with MGN-3 at different concentrations (5-20 pglml) for 24 hours in vitro. Activation of DCs was determined by assessing the expression of co-stimulatory and maturation markers (CD40, CD80, CD83, CD86 and HLA-DR) by flow cytometry, and production of cytokines by ELISA. DC function was determined by assessing their ability to activate naive Tcells. Activation of T cells was assessed by measuring cell proliferation and cytokine production. MGN-3 treatment, in a dose-dependent manner, resulted in: 1) up-regulation of the surface expression of CD83 and CD86, on DCs; 2) an increase in the production of pro-inflammatory and immuno-regulatory cytokines (IL-lp, IL-6, IL-10, TNF-c,lL-12p40 and low levels of lL-12p70 and IL-2) by DCs; and 3) MGN-3 stimulated DC induced CD4* Tcell proliferation and their production of cytokineso IFN-y, IL-10, lL-17. Results suggest that MGN-3 functions as a natural adjuvant for DC activation and thus may be used in DC-based vaccine strategies against infections and cancer.
