BIO-ACTIVE MICRO NUTRIENT (MN) MINERALS = BIOLOGICAL RESPONSE MODIFIERS (BRM)
BIO-ACTIVE MINERALS consist of mineral atoms that have been incorporated by the delicate organelles of the budding phyto-plankton cell during its sprouting period. The minerals thus assimilated by the cell are not only easily absorbable by the human organism, but can be readily assimilated by the target organs. Therefore, Bio-Active Minerals act as highly efficient Biological Response Modifiers for individuals suffering from metabolic deficiencies caused by chronic mineral deficits. Both, specific and general mineral deficiencies are rarely caused by a persistent lack of such minerals in their daily intake. Such deficit is almost always triggered by faulty absorption mechanisms in their metabolic systems.
The ingestion of minerals in their so called native form (that is, the form in which they naturally occur), is never a solution unless they are presented to the organism in a form in which they can virtually latch on to molecules that require such association, the match cannot be consumed. This, incidentally, also explains why some persons suffer from seemingly incurable sundry mineral deficits notwithstanding their impressive daily intake of an assortment of minerals.
Since its inception, more than a decade ago, one manufacturer’s research arm has evolved a trail-blazing program dedicated to molecular biology. Their research encompasses the chemical reactions involved in all manifestations of life. That is, molecular biology seeks the comprehension of all purposeful molecular reconstructions caused by the life processes.
This fulfills the claim made by Israeli plant biologists as far back as the early 70s that all manifestations of life must be explained in sequence and only thus can be grasped in proper context to health and disease and to draw the possible therapeutic conclusions from them. In subsequent years, this manufacturer has proven profusely that plant enzymology, and enzyme pathology in particular, ranks paramount in human welfare.
The remarkable knowledge yielded by such research activities constitutes, to this day, the formidable data base that girds Body BioticsTM, an enhanced SBO Probiotics Consortiaproduced by Life Science Products, Inc. Following its commitment to evolve a LIFE-BEARING FOOD accessible for everyone, Life Science Products developed a product that contains, in addition to its biological components, a chain of BIO-ACTIVE MINERAL ENHANCERS. These are not to be interpreted as substitutionally or supplementally administered minerals.
BIO-ACTIVE MINERAL ENHANCERS are veritable Biological Response Modifies (BMR) that provide adequate amounts of minerals in the form of MICRO NUTRIENTS (MN)assembled by delicate bio-molecular processes finely honed within the sprouting phytoplankton cells. Thanks to the molecular structure of these cell-grown BIO-ACTIVE MINERALS, they are readily absorbed by both the intestinal villi and lymphatic plexi (receptors), whence they are remitted easily to the targeted organs.
As we already explained above, a specific or multiple mineral deficits usually does not imply that there is a corresponding deficit of these in the individual’s daily nutrition. For instance, very frequently one can see individuals who virtually wallow in milk and other calcium-rich foods afflicted with acute and often very painful manifestations of calcium deficiencies. People whose foods abound in magnesium, zinc, and manganese suffer from chronic cramps and folks with more than adequate beta-carotene intake report loss of night-vision.
The explanation is obvious. Those people’s nutrition does not lack in vitamins or minerals. Their problem consists of a chronic absorption deficiency. And the relief of such maladjustments is what can be precisely achieved by daily supplementation of BIO-ACTIVE MICRO NUTRIENT MINERALS, such as, those contained in Body BioticsTM.
BIO-ACTIVE MICRO NUTRIENT ENHANCED
SBO PROBIOTICS CONSORTIA
The steady deterioration of our environment and the ever harsher competition for survival has unleashed a constant and irrepressibly growing stress-factor among the so-called civilized nations. The junk-food we are inescapably exposed to- including high priced perishables saturated with preservatives- associated with the incessantly increasing nervous tension at all social levels require impossibly fast adaptations in the human body.
While it is true that the human body is surprisingly adaptable to many circumstances, the heavy-duty requirements imposed on us by our irrevocably distorted modus Vivendi and modus operandi has pushed us mercilessly past the limit of our ability to cope with such drastic permanent changes.
The results can be appreciated in the growing number of diseases, some of which were totally unknown just a few decades ago. We challenge the doubter to examine the U.S. statistics when our country had but 100 million inhabitants: He will be surprised to learn there were approximately 80% less cancer cases- per capita of course- and less than 50% of diseases in general, let alone conditions we classify today as “food allergies”.
A growing number of the population has become particularly sensitive to these, because food in general- in many ill-conceived forms it is being industrialized in most so-called “civilized” societies, - is necessarily turning a large number of nutritional items into prime allergenic factors. Those noxious hamburgers and hot-dogs in their respective buns, the factory made sandwich “breads” made of denaturated wheat flour and leavened with sugar instead of yeast, (because sugar is not only cheaper than yeast, but acts also as a preservative), or soft drinks of all denomination, take a heavy toll on the health of permanent consumers.
The first question we have to answer is: Why don’t we do something about this? In order to answer this question, we must examine briefly what the notion of “allergy” really means. Allergies represent the sensitivity to substances with a potential that is noxious to some to the extent of inducing pathological reactions (Poison ivy is a typical example). The immune system reacts with defensive mechanisms- the development of specific antibodies against the aggression. However, the constant stress imposed on our bodies by the above described factors, associated with our regrettable tendency to embrace many toxic habits, frequently induce program failures, that is, virtual “software defects” in our immune system, resulting in the production of random, auto-aggressive antibodies which, in the oversensitive individual, can be also triggered by otherwise perfectly harmless substances, like wheat. Once an individual has become sensitized to any such harmless substance, each new exposure to it will trigger an increasingly intense reaction.
Now we must understand the mechanisms that enable the immune system to identify undesirable factors- called antigens- even if it is a harmless one to which the system became sensitized through program failure. Each fully grown cell, including obviously those of exogenous extraction that is, which entered the body through ingestion or inhalation- has an electro-magnetic “signature” that is clearly legible from the surface of its membrane. All natural food forms occur in the form of cells. The person who became erroneously sensitized to wheat, for example, will immediately react to the presence of the wheat cells which he has just ingested because his or her immune system’s sensors will swiftly react against the wheat cells mistakenly identified as antigens.
The reason this enhanced SBO Probiotics Consortia can safely be administered to food allergic users is because the product is based on cellular Micro Nutrients and bio-components. That is, influence is exerted in cellular reproduction before they are fully grown. In biological terms we say that the cells are not yet differentiated. Differentiation of a cell means that the characteristics relative to its structure and behavior, determined by its resident genetic code, are fully developed and the cell’s membrane is broad as to its identity. Albeit, biological data furnished to cells amidst their reproductive process in our intestinal flora are not yet differentiated, that is, cannot be identified by the user’s immune alarms. This is why they do not trigger any immune response and thus can be safely ingested even by allergic individuals who benefit from its life-enhancing natural properties.As a corollary, it is noteworthy that when an over reactive immune system is exposed for several months to the regulator effects of this undifferentiated enhanced SBO Probiotics Consortia, the biological “software” that governs the immune program can be effectively “debugged”. In other word, this formula also operates as an immune modulator par excellence.
All living tissues- human, plant, animal- consist of composite matter conglomerated in living cells, whose complexity is mind boggling, even in the simplest cell-forms. Needless to say, complications already start at sub-atomic level and keep branching out through the entire atomic range, first to the molecular level and then to the cellular differentiation proper.
Thus, all living tissues contain variable samples of millions of types of different stable molecules. The list begins with the simplest of all, the hydrogen molecule that contains but two of the most elemental atoms, ranging to highly organize cellular molecules, or even viruses, whose giant molecules contain precision-engineered specific combinations of more than 400 thousands atoms.
The “blueprint” that allows these formidably complex units to interact coherently, is called “nature”, such interactions can only occur when the participating units become readjusted in millions of variable forms that permit them to react to one another in a purposeful way.
In a human organism, for example, relatively few of the ingested compounds are being absorbed in their intact form. Most of the pure elements, when ingested, are synthesized into complex molecules before they become absorbable, whereas complex molecules frequently have to be broken down into simpler types and often have to be reformed into different ones before they become acceptable to the organism. By and large, this is the process we all know as
In spite of the fact that the general public- enlightened by such reliable medical authorities as the health columns of Good Housekeeping, Reader’s Digest, the Farmer’s Almanac, etc.- turned the terms “enzymes”, “amino acids”, and “co-factors” into widespread household words, only a small fraction of the population understand what these notions really entail and how to react to them.
Thus, relatively few consumers know- let alone understand- that the digestive process encompasses four general stages that begin when food is ingested: breakdown, absorption, assimilation, and elimination. If we analyze these phases, each can be subdivided into several sub stages that reveal a multitude of activities, all necessary to the coherent functioning of the organism.
We list separately absorption and assimilation for a good reason. The fact that a substance- regardless of how complex or simple- is really absorbed by the intestines does not necessarily also means that it is assimilated. Absorption relates to mechanisms responsible for the uptake of substances in the intestinal lumen, as well as, in certain other sectors of the organism; like the mucous tissue in the mouth, nose, and conjunctivas for example.
Whereas the notion of “absorption” entails the almost indiscriminate uptake of ingested substances, the incorporation of these or their breakdown fragments into any of the functioning organ tissues of the living body is a highly complex discriminatory process.
There is controversy raging around the question whether macromolecules ─ meaning large molecules, such as, the enzymes and peptides in this enhanced SBO Probiotics Consortiacan be absorbed intact or incorporated into the human intestinal lumen and can also be degraded first to much smaller molecules (amino acids) before they can pass the multiple barriers in the intestinal lumen.
La Tour A.C.’s Research Department has produced an essay under the title “The Intestinal Absorption of Peptiden and Enzymes” with the specific purpose to prove that under certain circumstances a moderate number of large molecules can be absorbed in the intestinal lumen. We recommend this essay, for it offers some coherent insight even for those who are not versed in biochemistry.
There is one more very important point that has to be stressed; especially in view that this enhanced SBO Probiotics Consortia’s efficacy pivots on the generic action of the product, rather than on its contents. None of the enzymes synthesized by the body is being produced in active form. That is, no enzyme is ready to function as such, after it rolls off the body’s biochemical assembly-line. All enzyme molecules have to be activated before they become functional. Until they are activated, they are generically called “enzymogens”. Think of a beautifully built electronic calculator: When it comes off the line it is inert. It requires a battery to enable it to perform all the wondrous functions that have been built into it. The same applies also to our enzymogens: They have to be coupled to a “co-factor” before they can enact the purpose they were designed for.
Curiously, in most cases of enzymopeniz- enzyme deficit, within a living organism the deficiency does not consist if a lack of enzymogens! The deficit is usually caused by a sharp decrease or complete absence of available co-factors, without whose interaction enzymogens simply cannot function as enzymes.
CALCIUM (Ca) is an alkaline earth-metal element (atomic number is 20; its atomic
Calcium is the fifth most abundant element in the human body and it occurs most commonly in the bone. Though in much smaller volumes, it has also paramount roles in the organism. i.e., the body requires calcium ions for the transmission of nerve signals, muscle contractions, blood coagulation, certain cardiac functions and also some other processes of lesser importance. Calcium can be found in the extra-cellular fluid and integrated into the membrane of soft tissue cells.
The average daily human intake of calcium varies between 200 and 2500 mgs. In the USA the major dietary sources for calcium are dairy products, though many other common sources are available as well. The RDA (recommended daily allowance) for calcium established by the Federal Food and Nutrition Board vary from 306 mgs for infants to 1200 mgs for women age 15-18. More than 90% of the body’s calcium is stored in the skeleton, which constantly renews its supplies from the interstitial fluids. The endocrine system controls the ionized calcium concentrations in the plasma. Only a small fraction if this is ionized and diffusible; the rest is bound to proteins, especially to albumin. It is the ionized, diffusible portion of plasma that participates in the physiological changes associated with hypocalcaemia.
About one third of the calcium ingested by humans is absorbed primarily in the small intestines. Vitamin D, calcitonin and para thyroid hormone are essential for the assimilation of calcium. (It should be always kept in mind that the absorption of calcium does NOT mean that it has been also assimilated). The degree of cell permeability varies inversely with the existing calcium concentrations. Abnormally high levels of calcium ions in the extracellular fluid can produce first muscle weakness, then lethargy and, if no measures are taken, even coma. Even a relatively small deficit can cause titanic seizures.
However, it is equally important to consider the effects of calcinosis which is the name of calcium excess. As it was pointed out, absorption doesn’t necessarily mean assimilation of a compound or element. In the USA it is very improbable that important percentages of the population would lack calcium in their daily nutrition. Even those who live on food stamps receive adequate amounts of minerals and vitamins. Thus, it is obvious that if someone shows signs of hypocalcaemia, it is more often than not caused by lack of assimilation rather than by lack of availibility.
By insisting on flooding an organism unable to assimilate proper amounts of calcium with excessive amounts of this mineral, we shall inevitably induce hypercalcaemia, or calcinosis, which is characterized by abnormal deposits of various calcium salts in different tissues of the body. Such concentrations can result in deposits on the interior lining (intima) of the arterial walls, where it attracts fat excesses and causes arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). It can also result in kidney, heart, and lung disorders, as well as in bursitis, vertebral and articular BIO-ACTIVE MICRO NUTRIENT (MN) MINERALS, such as, those contained in this SBO Probiotics Consortia prove to be a priceless therapeutic tool. The Micro Nutrient presentation of calcium offers the ailing organism the proper information ─ a veritable as hocassimilation software for the calcium starved cells, that will virtually “reprogram” the cells metabolic mechanisms.This SBO Probiotics Consortia provides a form of calcium which makes it impossible to overdose, thus, the risk of inducing a calcinosis is completely eliminated. The body will learn once again to assimilate the ideal amounts of calcium from its daily
BIO-ACTIVE MICRO NUTRIENT (MN) MAGNESIUM
MAGNESIUM (Mg) is a silver-white mineral element. Its atomic number is 12 and its atomic weight is 24.32.
Magnesium occurs abundantly in nature, always in combination with other elements. We can find it in sea water, bones (especially in those of mammals), and in many seed types, including wheat. It is present in the chlorophyll of the green plant tissues. It also forms combinations with other minerals, such as magnetite, dolomite, and carnalities.
In its purified form it is chiefly obtained by fusing salt containing magnesium chloride, or through thermal reduction of magnesia. It is useful in many industries such as metallurgy and photography. In its presentations as magnesium sulfate it is also used in various medicines.
Magnesium is the second most abundant in the intracellular fluid of the body and its presence is an essential premise for many enzyme activities. Its importance is also paramount in neuro-chemical signal transmission and, as such, for muscular excitability. The body of an average 145 lbs adult contains some 2000 mEq of magnesium. 50% of this amount is distributed among the bones, about 45% exist as intracellular cations, and 5% can be found in the extracellular fluid. The intracellular concentrations of magnesium range from 5 to 30 mEq per kilogram (1 kilogram is approx. 2.2 lbs), depending on the type of tissue. The concentration of magnesium in plasma is 1.5 to 2.2 mEq per liter, of which about two thirds circulate as free cations and one third is bound to plasma proteins. Very little is officially known about the interaction between plasma, intercellular and bone-bound magnesium. However, we already have ascertained that approximately 30% of the magnesium contained in the skeleton constitutes an exchangeable pool.
The average daily magnesium intake of an adult in the USA ranges between 20 and 40 mEq. About one third of the ingested quantity is effectively absorbed in the GI (gastro intestinal) tract. In fact, the magnesium absorption takes place in the upper bowel by means of an active process that relates closely to the calcium transport system.
Magnesium is excreted mainly through the kidneys. About 3% to 5% is effectively evacuated in the urine. The rest is re-absorbed. Most of the re-absorption is carried out by the proximal tubules of the kidneys. Renal magnesium excretion in notoriously increased during induced dieresis, accomplished with ammonium chloride, glucose high-concentrates, or organic mercurial and permanent treatment with diuretics, cause, among many other problems, hypomagnesaemia. Small amounts of magnesium are also excreted through the salvia and the milk of lactating mothers.Magnesium, as an element influences many enzymes in the body and represents a very important co-factor of all enzymes participating in phosphate transfer reactions that involve adenosine tri-phosphate and other nucleotide tri-phosphates as substrates. It is also essential to the interaction between intracellular particles and the binding of macromolecules to sub-cellular organelles, i.e., when ribosome’s acquire messenger RNA molecules.
Magnesium affects the central nervous system, the neuromuscular potential and many cardiovascular functions. Hypomagnesaemia increases the irritability of the central nervous system and in severe, persistent cases, can cause disorientation, convulsions and psychosis as well. On the other hand, resent research revealed abnormally high concentrations of plasma magnesium in manic depressive and schizophrenic patients, as to patients with endogenous and neurotic depressions, show abnormally low magnesium concentrations in their plasma. Magnesium tends to stifle the skeletal muscles functionality. Excessive magnesium concentrations inhibit the release of acetylcholine, an essential substance for the trans-synaptic signal traffic. To the contrary, insufficient magnesium the extracellular fluid increases the release of acetylcholine, augmenting muscular excitability to sometimes dangerous levels, causing subsequently persistent muscular contractions to the onset of tetany.
Magnesium excess can also slow down the heartbeat, and magnesium concentrations greater than 15 mEq per liter can lead to cardiac arrest during the diastolic phase. Persistent magnesium excesses can produce vasodilation both by direct influence and through ganglionic blockade. But hypomagnesaemia can be equally deleterious, causing changes in cardiac and skeletal muscles and can be also conductive to nephrocalcinosis.
Some of the abnormal conditions that can lead to hypo-magnesia are: Diarrhea, steatorrhea, chronic alcoholism and diabetes. Also, newborn babies can develop hypomagnesaemia when fed with cow milk or certain artificial formulas which supposedly feature a high phosphate-magnesium ratio. Hypermagnesaemia is caused either by persistent intakes indiscriminate of macro dosages or by renal insufficiency, which is manifested by hypotension, ECG changes, muscle weakness, auto-sedation and mental confusion.Macro dosages are only indicated to prevent seizures, preeclampsia, to prevent some forms of constipation and heartburns, or to replenish notorious magnesium losses.
Macro dosages of magnesium should not be taken without proper medical supervision.This SBO Probiotics Consortia provides a form of magnesium which can function in the body as a finely programmed regulators, instructing the body to assimilate and use the proper amount of magnesium abundantly available in our daily nutrition.
BIO-ACTIVE MICRO NUTRIENT (MN) POTASSIUM
The technical name of potassium is KALCIUM. (K) It is an alkali metalloid element, the seventh most abundant element in the earth’s crust. Its atomic number is 19 and its atomic weight is 39.1.
Potassium occurs in a wide variety of silicate rock. In its elemental form it is easily oxidized and is extremely reactive. Life based on carbon metabolism is impossible without potassium salts, because this element constitutes the predominant intracellular cation regulating neuronal signal transmission and consequently muscular contractions.
Nutritional sources of potassium are: Whole grains, meats, legumes, fruits and vegetables, the adequate average of daily intake for an adult ranges from 2 to 4 gm’s. Potassium is of paramount importance in glycogen and protein synthesis (formation), and is one of the controlling factors of the appropriate balance in the acid-base metabolism, especially in association with sodium and hydrogen atoms.
Most of the potassium in the body is absorbed by the GI tract during the processes of homeostasis (the replacement of excreted water in the blood serum; this is supplied by the lymphatic system through its thoracic duct which decants the lymphatic fluid into the right atrium of the heart through the superior vena cava.) thus, ideally, the amount of potassium excreted in the urine should equal the amount of potassium ingested in the diet.
Potassium salts are very important therapeutic agents but can be extremely dangerous when used improperly or indiscriminate quantities. The kidneys play a highly significant role in controlling potassium absorption and excretion. Many conventional prescription drugs-particularly those prescribed as diuretics or to lower high blood pressure (i.e. Aldosterone) - stimulate sodium re-absorption and potassium secretion by the kidneys. A major consequence to this anti-physiological process, for example, is the extra renal adoption that involves random potassium absorption in the liver and in muscle tissues.
The intracellular concentrations of potassium are always higher than those in the extracellular fluid of the body, and when the extracellular hydrogen ion concentration increases-as in acidosis, for instance- potassium ions move from the cells into the extracellular fluid. Again, when the extracellular fluid into the cells.
Extracellular acidosis produces hyperkalemia- the medical term for potassium excess, whereas, extracellular alkalosis causes hypokalemia, referring to potassium deficit. This most common mechanism that depletes normal potassium concentrations is an increased rate of renal or intestinal excretion or more rarely, through the skin. Excessive loss can occur due to persistent diarrhea, or due to persistent heat in high humidity environments.
It is important to know that the ingestion of adequate amounts of food- particularly fruits and meats- ensures appropriate sources of potassium. When a potassium deficit has been determined, its cause rests usually in some form of assimilative disorder, rather than in the lack of available potassium. Thus, also in these cases BIO-ACTIVE (MN) POTASSIUM is recommended, because it offers BIO-CORRECTIVE INFORMATION to the cells rather than indiscriminate flooding of the organism with macro doses of potassium. Such drastic measures can, at best, only serve as crutches, but endanger potentially the health of the indiscriminate.
BIO-ACTIVE MICRO NUTRIENT (MN) MANGANESE
MANGANESE (Mn) is a rather common metallic element. Its atomic number is 25 and its atomic weight is 54.938.
It is usually present as trace element in various tissue types of the organism where it acts as a catalyst in the synthesis of several very important antioxidant, proteolytic and glucolytic
Because it is a trace element, the requires daily intake of manganese can be expressed only in terms of micro nutrient substances, in this case ranging from 13 to 60 ppm (part per million). Manganese is present in many components of our regular nutrition, particularly in most forms of fresh fruits and raw vegetables. Its absorption occurs through osmosis. Thus, for once there is no danger of overdosing because only very minute amounts can pass the osmotic.
LITHIUM (Li) is a silvery white metal occurring in a variety of infrequent compounds, such as petalite and spodumene, for example: Its atomic number is 3 and its atomic weight is 6.94.
Lithium is the lightest known metal and one of the most reactive elements. Traces of lithium ions occur in some animal tissues and it abounds in many alkaline mineral spring waters. For about three decades its salts have been used to treat a variety of manias and depressive syndromes. However, notwithstanding its acceptance and use as valuable therapeutic tool, the mechanism through which lithium helps to stabilize and compensate some psychological conditions is not understood by the medical establishment.
Thus, Lithium carbonate is used for psychiatric purposes in the USA. It has proven to be particularly effective in the prevention of recurrence of manic depressive episodes. It has also assisted manic patients to correct insomnia, apparently by suppressing the rapid eye movement (REM) phases of their sleep. It is important to know that in-depth research has determined that therapeutic concentrations of lithium have no psychotropic effect on normal individuals. In manic patients macro doses of lithium salts also trigger high voltage and sloe electro encephalic waves, frequently with superimposed beta waves.
An important feature of lithium ions is their relatively small gradient of distribution across biological membranes. Although it indeed can replace sodium in supporting a nerve cell action potential, it is not competent in priming the sodium pump adequately; thus, it cannot maintain those potentials. Lithium ions are quickly and almost completely absorbed from the GI tract, producing peak concentrations in the plasma between 2 and 4 hours after ingestion. First, the ion spreads through the extracellular fluid and then, gradually disperses in varying concentrations through different tissues. Lithium ions do pass slowly the blood-brain barrier, and when a steady state is achieved, the concentration of lithium in the cerebrospinal fluid represents about 40% of the concentration in the plasma. It is interesting to know that approximately 95% of the ingested lithium salt is excreted through the urine.
Lithium ions have such a low therapeutic index that safe treatments require daily determinations of plasma concentrations. Toxicity may result if persistent levels rise beyond peak concentrations. Acute poisoning by lithium may cause seizures and eventually death. Side effects may include polyuria, polydypsia and benign enlargement of the thyroid gland. In addition to manias and manic depressive cases, mixed and somewhat inconclusive results have been achieved with macro doses of lithium in cases of premenstrual tension, alcoholism, episodic irrational anger and anorexia nervosa. Severe cases should be hospitalized when treated with macro doses of lithium salts so they can receive proper medical maintenance and supervision.
Macro doses of lithium should never be administered in cases of pre-existing renal or cardiovascular conditions. In general, patients should be pre-tested for sensitivity. The administration to children before their puberty is definitely contraindicated.
The remarkable effectiveness of lithium administered in Micro Nutrients quantities is because, on one hand, such amounts functions as a virtual blueprint offering vital information to the cells, in this case to neurons. On the other hand, at such quantities lithium is indeed also effective in normal individuals subjected to persistent stress conditions.
BIO-ACTIVE MICRO NUTRIENT (MN) CESIUM
CESIUM (Cs) is an alkali metals, cesium emits electrons when exposed to visible light and is used industrially in photoelectric cells and TV cameras. This makes its human nutrition the more remarkable.
At therapeutic quantities- 100 to 500 mgs daily- cesium is completely non toxic. Its toxic amount was determined by Brewer as 135 grams (almost 5 ounces!). Its lethal age has never been determined. Its chloride salt is highly soluble and is, as such, easily absorbed yielding prolonged tissue persistence. Cesium blocks the egress of potassium in kalium channels (from any tissue) and thus reduces remarkably stimulations commonly arising from potassium loss. It also diminishes amphetamine toxicity; it has a synergistic effect with chlorpromazine and haloperidol (tranquilizer-depressors) and reveals a suppressant effect on dopaminergic transmissions. (Dopamine is a sympathomimetic catecholamine which is used in shock, extremely low blood pressure and in deficient cardiac output). This implies that small amounts of cesium exert a standardizing regulatory effect on individuals with incipient congestive heart failure and/or moderate high blood pressure.
Cesium has also been used as a coadjutant in the treatment of alcoholism, in some affective illnesses, in drug-induced motor disorders and even in some cases of obsessive compulsive behavior and depressions.
It is important to know that there also exists a radioactive cesium (CESIUM-137) with a half-life of 30.2 years. Cesium chloride blocks very effectively the absorption of the radioactive Cesium-137 frequently used as radioactive agents, implanted in humans ad hoc for the treatment of various types of localized cancer. In these cases cesium chloride is very useful to limit the action of its radioactive isotope.
Cesium also reveals a remarkable affinity with several endogenous reactions of the spleen, which stimulate vigorously the immune system in general.
The extraordinary usefulness of cesium in Micro Nutrient concentrations can be established as two different parameters: In the effective prevention (NOT in the therapy) of degenerative cardiovascular conditions and in the prevention of cancer in patients which were never afflicted with it before. A family history of cesium does not diminish the preventive effectiveness of cesium. (Obviously, this is a rather delicate issue, since, in order to produce a statistically significant proof of its efficacy, it would require a rather extensive study to show that normal individuals taking daily 500 mgs of cesium are not victimized by cancer over a period of not less than 20 years, whereas US. Vital statistics accepted by government agencies and insurance companies reveal that at present 20.7% of the general public die of some form of cancer.
BIO-ACTIVE MICRO NUTRIENT (MN) MOLYBDENUM
MOLYBDENUM (Mo) is a grayish, metallic element. Its atomic number is 42 and its atomic weight is 95.94.
Molybdenum is one of the rarest elements on earth and is available only in scarce, isolated pockets in the planet’s crust. From a biological standpoint, it is remarkable that in spite of its rare and uneven occurrence, all life forms equipped with nerve cells evolved requiring molybdenum as a trace element which enables the synapses to transmit signal traffic. It appears that notwithstanding the tenuous- virtually homeopathic- concentrations of molybdenum, corresponding to that of a trace element, it wields a paramount influence over the formation of the myelin sheaths, the insulation around all nerve segments.
Considering all that we were taught in regards to the evolution of life on our planet, it would stand to reason that our bodies should have evolved essentially from abundant, universally available elements. The requirement of a trace element, that is extremely rare on earth, in the capacity as a catalytic agent ─ essential for the insulation of all nerve conduits would appear to be extremely unlikely. Yet, these are unquestionable facts. Thus, the enormous importance exerted by molybdenum over vital nerve functions and processes is very profound.
Molybdenum salts are absorbed through osmosis, which is rather comforting, for it eliminates the hazard of overdosing. Yet, molybdenum cations can, under certain faulty renal conditions, accumulate and wreak havoc within the nerve cells, particularly in those of the central nervous system.
Regrettably, a molybdenum deficit cannot be easily determined. Only be inference can we attempt to identify a hypo-molybdiemia; whereas, because molybdenum is osmotic ally assimilated, a molybdenum excess could, as we’ve seen above, occur only in response to cumulative concentrations which are so extremely rare that they have no statistical significance.Summarizing all these considerations, we are left with the somewhat startling knowledge that the mammalian onto genitical program appears to prescribe that at a certain stage of the myelin sheath synthesis, the fatty molecules needed in the process of forming the insulating sheath- designed to embrace the axons (motor nerve segments; in fact, segment is an elongated nerve cell designed to carry and transmit nerve signals)- require the presence of a trace amount of molybdenum in order to coalesce into the programmed structure.
BIO-ACTIVE MICRO NUTRIENT (MN) IRON
Iron is one of the most misunderstood minerals incorporated into human society’s nutrition. The battle-cry is “iron is good for you!” and under this aegis the entire population is encouraged to overdose relentlessly. Now, there is no doubt that without iron we would be unable to breathe. For, the oxidizing and deoxidizing potential of the iron atom enclosed in the hem faction of the hemoglobin is the agent that makes it possible to carry oxygen to the cells and when the red blood cells are unable to assimilate iron we are diagnosed as victims of anemia. (Though there are several varieties of anemia, for the purpose of illustrating the point we want to make, we focus here only on the hypo chromic variety, which is when the erythrocyte, red blood cell is unable to assimilate.)
However, before we indulge in a reverent praise of iron, it is necessary to examine a few facts which are largely ignored by human society. First of all, it is necessary to become aware that besides for breathing, iron is completely useless for the human body. Originally, when the first life forms evolved about two billion years ago when the planet cooled sufficiently down to sustain life; our atmosphere was completely free of oxygen. In fact, for those early life forms, oxygen was a lethal gas. It is a long story to explain why and how the planet
This implies that the consequences of excessive iron in the body will cause a whole array of problems and in certain cases even wreak havoc. There are three main trends of pathological conditions that can be triggered by excessive iron. The first, which is the most conspicuous, is also usually the least dangerous. A well functioning body that is, however, unable to eliminate the excessive iron, will usually deposit the excess somewhere under the skin, causing dark brown spots under the skin, which medical terminology calls siderosis.
While siderosis is definitely ugly, it is relatively harmless until, due to certain changes in the body’s chemistry, excess iron eventually winds up in the Sino- atrial and Sino- ventricular nodes of the heart, which are the centers of the autonomous nervous system of system of the heart, called the bundle of His. These nodes are the mechanisms that generate the heart pulses. When oxidized iron penetrates the nodes, it interferes with the heart rhythm and a condition known as arrhythmia occurs. Many cardiologists do not know to this date what really causes arrhythmia.
The second condition is far more unsavory. We just said that the human body has no use for iron other than for breathing. On the other hand, all infectious agents- germs, viruses and pathological yeast do require iron in their metabolism. Virtually all infectious agents are anaerobic or at least semi-anaerobic, that is, they are non-breathers. So they do not require iron for breathing; they use it as a nutrient! In other words, whoever takes indiscriminate amounts of iron is virtually nourishing all infectious agents that happen to be present in the body!
The third pathological influence of excessive iron has far more complex causes. The various nervous systems of our body- the central, the vegetative, the sensorial and the autonomous nervous system of the heart operate through millions of electromagnetic micro force fields. Now, all unused iron, meaning iron that is not required by the breathing mechanisms does not circulate through the body humors as free iron, but oxidizes in the aqueous environment and circulates as a ferrous oxide. This is the same substance that coats the tapes in tape and video recorders. This implies that it can be randomly magnetized and will retain such magnetic information. We live in a highly magnetic and electromagnetic environment where all ferrous oxide atoms are indiscriminately exposed to such influence. When a magnetized oxide molecule traverses existing force fields it will make it react. Due to its random magnetization, the effects are totally unpredictable. Arrhythmia, which we have mentioned earlier, is atypical consequence. The iron atom that becomes oxidized in the course of the breathing mechanism is relatively well protected because the core of the hemoglobin constitutes an “armor” of sort, called a pyrrholic ring that protects the tissues from the possible magnetic effects of the ferrous oxide carrying oxygen in the hemoglobin.
The body provides no such protection against the so called “free” iron. Randomly magnetized ferrous oxide molecules circulating through the body humors can wreak real havoc at the most unexpected sectors of the organism. Nervous problems such as Parkinson’s or severe malfunctions in the bone marrow, or “unexplainable” digestive, motor, or kidney disease can be triggered by massive and disruptive electromagnetic signals broadcast by incessantly cruising contaminated ferrous oxide molecules. Very few nutritionists are really aware of this circumstance. Iron has been recommended indiscriminately.
The solution, first of all, it must be known that in modern environment an iron poor nutrition is almost impossible. When iron is lacking in the red blood cells it is because the cells do not assimilate it. The solution, then, consists of furnishing appropriate programming to the red blood cells, rather than attempting to substitute what they already have.
One of the most extraordinary values of this enhanced SBO Probiotics Consortia is its multiple potential to perfectly furnish assimilation enzymogens, cofactors and Micro Nutrients tot he organism. A very moderate amount of co-factors are more than sufficient to activate vast numbers of enzymogens, which also explains why its performance is so superior to many of the "so called" enzyme formulas on the market. The unique physiological method of dehydration of this product preserves intact the vitality of its components and provides a compact bioactive, natural food complex that can stimulate and regulate, both, the body's immune response and its endogenous energy sources.
This SBO Probiotics Consortia provides a form of calcium which makes it impossible to overdose, thus, the risk of inducing a calcinosis is completely eliminated. The body will learn once again to assimilate the ideal amounts of calcium from its daily nutrition.
This SBO Probiotics Consortia provides a form of magnesium which can function in the body as a finely programed regulators, instructing the body to assimilate and use the proper amount of magnesium abundantly available in our daily nutrition.
The bio-corrective information contained in this SBO Probiotics Consortia acts as veritable biological blueprint for the immune response, inducing appropriate repairs in cells and tissues.
This SBO Probiotics Consortia has incorporated manganese in its arsenal of Bio-Active MN Minerals with the purpose of using it, in combination with other MN Minerals, as a paramount synthesis enhancer of many important enzymes.
Due to the significance of the micro nutrient, Molybdenum, and its scarcity; the manufacturers of this SBO Probiotics Consortia identified it as having great importance in their formula.
This SBO Probiotics Consortia offers the perfect solution to iron overload. As a Micro Nutrient, these minute quantities operate as a virtual blueprint to assist the red blood cells in assimilating the iron extant in its environment.
