|==> Fucoidan – Approximately 4% of the total dry weight of brown seaweed consists of fucoidan. Fucoidan is a sulfated polysaccharide, also referred to as an “evaporated oligomineral.” It is the fucoidan content in brown seaweed that has been proven to cause certain types of rapidly growing cancer cells to self-destruct, according to the Biomedical Research Laboratories of Takara Shuzo and the Research Institute for Glycotechnology Advancement.
This phenomenon of cancer cell “self-destruction” is known as apoptosis, which is caused by a mechanism that is programmed into the nature of the cells themselves. When the apoptosis mechanism is triggered within a cell, the cell’s DNA or genetic blueprint is rendered useless, and therefore destroyed. Apoptosis has been referred as the natural process through which living organisms expel harmful cells.
The health benefits of fucoidan have been published in more than 600 scientific articles in The National Library of Medicine. The research shows that fucoidan’s therapeutic properties include immune system enhancement, relief of digestive/intestinal disorders, allergy control, improvement of liver functions, powerful anti-oxidant action, cholesterol and blood pressure regulation, blood sugar stabilization and the promotion of healthy skin and hair.
==> Fucoxanthin – It is the fucoxanthin in brown seaweed that is credited with efficient fat-burning. However, fucoxanthin does not accomplish this by itself. Therefore, taking fucoxanthin supplements will not do the trick. Rather, fucoxanthin works in combination with the mineral iodine that’s also present in brown seaweed. When the thyroid is supplied with a sufficient amount of iodine, the endocrine system is rehabilitated and functions more efficiently — and this increases your body’s metabolic speed, thereby enabling your body to burn calories faster and prevent the accumulation of body fat.
==> Alginates –Alginic acid, also called algin or alginate, is an anionic polysaccharide that exists in the cell walls of brown algae. The alginate content of brown seaweed detoxifies the body of strontium, uranium, mercury, lead — and hundreds of toxic chemicals that we’re exposed to in modern society. Such toxins, which become embedded in the heart, kidneys, liver, brain and other organs, are effectively eliminated from the body by sea vegetables, particularly brown seaweed.
“Brown Seaweed Detoxified the
Effects of Chernobyl…”
Perhaps the most convincing case study that points to the detoxification ability of alginates in brown seaweed occurred in 1986 when a nuclear power plant in Chernobyl, Ukraine exploded — enveloping the city and surrounding areas in radioactive debris. Modifilan, a super concentrated extract of brown seaweed, was readily deployed to all affected areas and helped detoxify thousands of victims.
In addition, more than 2,000 reserve-drafted men between the ages of 25 to 45, who were assigned the task of re-excavating Chernobyl and changing the sewage system out, were taking Modifilan on a daily basis for about 2 months under the supervision of doctors. They consumed about 2 tablespoons of Modifilan per day.
The results of the study exceeded all expectations! In addition toModifilan‘s ability to remove heavy metals from the body, those who had pre-existing health conditions (particularly those over the age of 40), experienced a wide array of healing episodes. They were also able to rehabilitate thyroid gland function and increase energy level in those who consumed the extract.
|==> Organic Iodine – Most people think iodine is only beneficial for the thyroid, but it’s actually important for other organs of the body as well, including breast and prostate gland tissue. It is believed that the rates of breast cancer in Japan are significantly lower than they are in the Western world because the Japanese consume higher quantities of seaweed. A sufficient level of iodine reactivates the thyroid, and consequently regulates other glands and organs, including the pancreas, gall bladder, kidneys, adrenals, and even the liver.
==> Laminarin – The laminarin content of brown seaweed is a great natural source of energy.
Because of the publicity that brown seaweed has received in recent years, including a feature article in Time Magazine, it’s not surprising that most people are heading to the nearest health food store and buying brown seaweed. However, there is a danger in simply buying brown seaweed in the form of kelp, kombu or kombu powder as a dietary supplement.
Warning: Consuming large amounts of kombu can actually backfire on you because kombu consists of indigestible cellulose or non-soluble fiber. Even taking a teaspoon or tablespoon of kombu powder, which appears finely ground, can feel like shrapnel to your colon because it is an insoluble substance. Diarrhea or constipation is likely to occur in those who start eating kombu in larger quantities than their bodies are accustomed to.
The company that manufactures Modifilan and U-Fn, the most bioavailable fucoidan extract, does not sell directly to the public, but distributes its brown seaweed extract through a network of medical doctors (MDs), naturopathic doctors (NDs), dieticians, chiropractors, kinesiologists and other licensed medical professionals. They also make their brown seaweed products available through online distributors such as Poseidon’s Harvest.
Featured Topic: A Mushroom That Makes You Skinny?
Many health-conscious people have already discovered that the medicinal reishi mushroom has extraordinary health- and longevity-enhancing properties, is a super immune booster —and is one of the most powerful herbs known to man. But most people don’t know that Reishi mushrooms can also make you skinny, or eliminate unwanted weight.
Dr. Suzanne Gudakunst, the doctor who recently discovered the cure for obesity — much to the consternation of the medical and food industries that make billions of dollars by keeping people fat — developed a proprietary method of dehydrating Reishi mushrooms down to a tiny fraction of their size, and encasing them in small capsules. When you take a capsule (called Skinny Shrooms) as directed, the dehydrated reishi mushroom expands in your stomach. This not only makes you feel full … but it goes further than that.
The feeling of satiety (which tells your body, “I am full” and to stop eating) does not come from your stomach. It comes from your brain. Some experts say it takes an average of 20 minutes for the body’s signal to reach the brain. This is how weight gain usually happens. If you eat an entire meal in less than 20 minutes, you would have consumed hundreds of calories more than your body really wants before the satiety signal makes it to the brain.
With the reishi mushroom capsule, the feeling of fullness produced in the stomach is not theonly factor involved in the satiety process. The reishi mushrooms actually activate the satiety response (which originates in the hypothalamus) and makes you stop eating.
In addition, because reishi mushrooms are a nutrient-dense “super food” — and not just a dietary supplement — they actually provide super nutrition that most diets never provide.
What Fitness and Nutrition “Gurus” Won’t Tell You
Every major diet — whether it be the South Beach Diet, the Atkins, Zone or Master Cleanse diet — DOES work. But only for a little while.
It doesn’t take a genius to know that if you cut down your carbohydrate intake (as recommended by the Atkins Diet) … or you go on a lemonade diet for 10 days — or replace 2 meals a day with Slimfast, Special K or a protein drink, and have just one sensible dinner thereafter — you WILL lose weight.
But a weight loss program is only truly effective if it works with — and not against — the natural biochemistry of the human body … and if it promotes good health.
What good is a high-protein diet that makes you gain muscle and lose fat … if it causestoxicity of the liver, kidneys and brain? Yes, that’s what a high-protein diet does in the long run.
What good is it if you got really skinny on a low-fat diet … but the diet caused you to havesaggy, loose-fitting skin, ovarian cysts (in women), and low sperm or testosterone counts (in men)? Yes, that’s what a low-fat diet does. Have you ever noticed that most weight management “experts” look haggard and old for their age?
What good is having a diet that has the 40-30-30 balance of macronutrients if you will constantly have digestive distress?
And what good is having a lean, great-looking body if the process of acquiring it causes you to be in poor health?
Dr. Gudakunst’s Skinny Shrooms can, once and for all, enable you to lose unwanted pounds while honoring your body’s nutritional needs so that you can keep the weight off forever — and you won’t jeopardize your health in the process of shedding pounds. This is what most so-called fitness and nutrition gurus won’t tell you.
No More Food Cravings
Another secret mechanism at work in Skinny Shrooms is this: Because reishi mushrooms “mineralize” your body, food cravings virtually disappear. It is a well-known scientific fact that mineral deficiencies (such as a deficiency in chromium and vanadium) causes sugar cravings and other fattening predispositions.
In addition to effective weight management, Skinny Shrooms comes with all the health benefits of reishi mushrooms. Reishi mushrooms have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for more than 4,000 years. Some of the most common health issues treated with this herbal relief include:
A high quality reishi mushroom supplement in tablet or capsule form would cost upwards of $50.00 a bottle. But although commercially available reishi supplements might provide excellent nutritional support, they would not be in a dehydrated form that expands in your stomach, activates the satiety response in the brain — and makes you skinny. Skinny Shrooms costs only a fraction of what reishi supplements normally cost — and this week only, Dr. Gudakunst is letting Underground Health Reporter readers get a 10-day supply completely free of charge.
