“Blue Green Algae: Nature’s Most Potent Superfood.”

According to Dr. Daniel Pompa it is anyway.

And I would not argue with him: I began eating blue green algae in 1980, and have been a huge fan every since.

Like any whole food, this supplement is subject to degradation via all kinds of processing slip ups. That is why, after looking and working through those issues as well as cost, availability, and convenience, I wrote this Blog Post about it four years ago. Here is another Post where I put it in context (nutrition recommendations are not given in a vacuum – at least not if you are a health care professional, supposed to follow the evidence). And one more here.

Try searching “blue green algae” if you are interested because there are other Posts on it that I think are worth looking at – if you care about such things.

I mentioned in a recent Blog Post that I care about your health. I also mentioned that I see it as my job to help you make the best health choices that you can. One way that I do that is by providing you with valuable information: not the stuff you will get through the mainstream (corporate) media; and not the stuff you will see walking down the isles.

Often what we recommend is free – if you don’t count time and energy. Sometimes there is a cost. But the cost of health promotion and maintenance is nothing compared to the cost of being sick and diseased. And it is going to be one or the other. The older you get, the more certain you can be of that fact.

It is hard for some people to believe that we are not just another place making recommendations so we can sell stuff. For those who can get past that and actually look at what we recommend… here is a video describing the results of the 36th clinical study performed on JuicePlus+ products (https://safeshare.tv/x/ss58fb8760eb9a4).

(And I just figured out that if you go to our JP+ site and click on the photo of the Journal that each study is published in, you get a synopsis of the research results, cool huh? Here is the link to the Study in the video: http://dennisdilday.juiceplus.com/us/en/clinical-research/published-medical-and-scientific-journals)

JuicePlus+ is like Tai Chi and Kangen water: the more science studies it, the more benefits it is recognized as having. These things are like cheating for anyone wanting to restore or maintain their health. If that is you just let us know and we can help.

My Notes From Last Week’s JP+ Event

12189625_1004349716306487_4999366956215085122_n

It was a wall-to-wall crowd, with folks standing in the back and along the walls on one side. The food was great; and there were (mostly healthy) drinks. But the main speaker was almost an hour late, so I left when he finished at 9 p.m. and didn’t listen to Dr. Mitra Ray.

For most part what John Blair had to say was all old news, or very predictable (JP+ is the best, and way out ahead of all of the rest of the supplements available – we already knew that.) There was some interesting information though, and I took notes. So here I will share with any who may be interested in learning a little more. (All, or most, of the blanks in my notes is filled in by dozens of Posts on the subject over the past ten years on this Blog, and by the JP+ website I get as a Representative: I keep the website so patients and others can access all they want to online, before contacting me to place an Order.)

So here are my notes:

JuicePlus+ John Blair Event

Lynnwood Convention Center

January 27, 2017

 

John Blair is the Sr. VP of JuicePlus+ – for 27 years

Research common threads… lifestyle diseases: chronic inflammation, immune dysfunction, oxidative stress, & obesity (obesity is going to pass heart disease as the #1 disease…causes of death)

Predation: death by predator (that used to be a big deal – ancestors – verses lifestyle now).

The JP+ study on smoking was done in Italy (big smoking problem there).

NIH, WHO, & NCI… the “5 a Day” push for fruits and vegetables in the daily diet was an effort to get the public to do something in the right direction, they knew it was actually 9-13 servings per day that is recommended in the research.

 

“Salt, Sugar, Fat” by Michael Moss – about how the food industry worked to find the ‘bliss point’ (brain chemistry) that would have humans keep eating more and more of their food.

 

San Bernardino, CA – first McDonald’s… Dire Straights song was about McDonald’s

 

SuperSize Me, the movie: what would happen in 30 days (gained over 24 pounds, etc.) and then how long it took to get back to normal (14 months)

“Younger Next Year” – a book – the over 50 crowd has to exercise 6 days a week (Chris Crowley)

ChooseMyPlate.gov – the government has figured it out (1/2 of the plate is fruits and vegetables!!), but no one is paying any attention!

70% of us are taking supplements regularly… isolated, fragmented, synthesized for the most part (COSTCO).

One study on supplements recently… higher risk of dying (all cause) for woman taking the supplements!

With the JP+ TRIO and the Complete you get over 40 fruits, vegetables, and berries (the TRIO alone has 30 whole foods)

 

The message of the RAINBOW DIET is (1) to get more colors, and (2) the more pigment the better (darker, e.g., the Vineyard Blend has lots of very dark berries!)

 

NSF – 3rd Party testing… all of their testing duplicates all the testing already done routinely by JP+

Plant Power

The most thoroughly researched name brand nutritional product on the market (JP+)

35 Medline published studies… compare to any other: none compare.

Over weight boys study… the researcher’s wife became a JP+ representative; the researcher went on to do the 35th JP+ study – he had the burning question (and the connections, resources, etc.)

Industry Conferences… as a Board member of the Council on Responsible Nutrition, and Past Chair, he attends many of these…. Where the talk is more and more about the microbiome… (turns our JP+ is way ahead of the curve and doing the research on how JP+ Trio + Complete affects the microbiome).

JP+ Children’s Health Study – there have now been 750,000 participants!

/////////

The CRN overlooks the quality control of the nutritional supplements industry. As past Chairman, Mr. Blair will share insights and trends affecting the industry and explain where JuicePlus+ sits in the bigger scheme of things nutritionally.

 

DESCRIPTION

Join John Blair, Sr. Vice President of the Juice Plus Company, to get a real look inside the Nutritional Supplementation Industry and the Quality control and Research behind Juice Plus.

John is responsible for leading the Juice PLUS+ Company into the field of nutrition, and was the developer of the manufacturing team that has produced the entire Juice PLUS+ product line since 1993.

Feedback

This…

A JuicePlus+ customer completed their JuicePLus+ Effect Survey yesterday.

Out of 17 questions, he said “yes” to 11. Here are the yeses after only 4 months of taking the JuicePlus TRIO of capsules (Orchard, Garden and Vineyard Blends of fruits, vegetables and berries):

An increase in the amount of water you drink? YES
A reduction in the amount of fast food and/or soft drinks you consume? YES
An improvement in the quality of your sleep? YES
An increase in your energy level? YES
Any weight loss (if you felt you needed to lose weight)? YES
A reduction in the number of cold or flu-like symptoms? YES
(Or has your dentist noticed) healthier gums-things like less bleeding when brushing or flossing, or a healthier pink color? YES
(Or has your hair dresser noticed) indications of healthier hair – things like shinier hair, stronger hair, or more hair growth? YES
Stronger or faster growing nails? YES
Improvements in your complexion, such as smoother skin, clearer skin, a reduction in the oiliness or dryness or your skin, or just and overall healthier glow? YES
An improvement in your general sense of wellbeing? YES

Like many folks some of these changes hadn’t really occurred to him until he was asked, just like chiropractic patient who don’t realize until asked that their breathing or their digestion improved after chiropractic care.

Do The Math On Where To Buy Your Supplements

Some people say that our JP+ supplements are expensive. (For some reason the primary research support of claims made and the third party endorsements of quality just aren’t compelling.) To that I usually agree – unless you compare it to the cost of not being healthy – sickness is really expensive – if you do the math.

Others believe that they get the same thing at a bargain price by buying at Walmart, GNC, Target or other retail stores.

You may want to re-think what you get for what you pay – depending on what results you are really after. Don’t take my word for any of this though – gather some facts for yourself.

Click here if you want to buy some of those expensive JuicePlus+ supplements – the ones with more research than any other, with third party endorsement of what is and what is not in them; and the ones that result in a very predictable (clinically proven actually) list of health benefits.

Pay For Health Now, Or Pay For Sickness Later

I recently placed a JuicePlus+ Order for a friend. I asked whether she wanted the TRIO of Capsules (Orchard Fruits, Garden Vegetables, and Vineyard Berries) or just the Orchard and Garden Blends. There is a significant difference in expense.

She asked me what I thought she should do, and I said, “well, you can pay for health now or pay for disease later” and gave her the choice. She chose to order the TRIO.

You see I am supposed to make recommendations based on evidence. And it’s not just that JuicePlus+ is in a league by itself when it comes to research; it’s also a matter of considering the alternative options. Second best is so far behind that it isn’t even in sight.

For many people at least one meal a day is purchased at the drive-thru. That’s processed food by definition; and junk food on a more-probable-than-not basis. If that’s the case and you can’t, don’t or won’t eat the recommended 7-10 servings of fruits and vegetables each day, then how are you going to make up the difference? How are you going to bridge the Gap? (If you don’t bother now you will be paying for your diseases later.)

When all the options are considered, JuicePlus+ stands out as the best value. You can place an Order here; or give our office a call and we can help you decide what is best and take care of ordering.

 

P.S. – This friend mentioned, as she often does, that going back nearly 20 years she has never regretted following my advice: whether it’s was exercise, Kangen water (which she now drinks), chiropractic, or supplements. It is worth noting that on each point mentioned the same analysis applies – what is the evidence and what are the options?

“How to Choose the Best Quality Nutritional Supplements”

1559343_10153406433915200_7076689658473109983_oThat’s the title of this article.

I read because I wondering if they would recommend you look for supplements that have primary gold standard research. That wasn’t even mentioned. It’s so rare in the industry – some say “impossible” because it’s “too expensive” – that it doesn’t even rate mention.

So take a look at this article with your supplement bottles in your hands because there is some useful information about what not to buy. Then take your JuicePlus+ secure in the knowledge that the claims are backed up by real research and all the quality assurance claims are backed up by a third party endorsement of the highest caliber. There’s a reason the JuicePlus+ is the most popular name brand supplement in the world.

If you are not on JuicePlus+ yet, then Order your today here! Or call us for more information at (425) 348-5207.
