The Chicken Experiment – My first experiment with Vita Biosa 10+

Okay so as I looked around, I spotted the dogs so they were next…

Then the horses…

Then my friends…..

Tried, true, and fully tested… we are believers….then we had to wait for 5 years for the Company Biosa INC. owned by Niels Wandler to finally gain approval from Health Canada for us to be able to present to you the remarkable Vita Biosa 10+.

*Remember…..trust no one…..not even me…..do your own research and experiments

Information provided by Niels Wandler of Biosa Inc.

It appears and research confirms that oral hygiene is paramount to general health and, in particular, cardiovascular health. The oral cavity holds billion of microscopic pores inhabit by bacteria, places that are not reached by toothbrushes.

Dentists and heart surgeons report that bacteria, originating in the oral cavity, enters the cardiovascular system, where it build up and grow bio-colonies, which over time will impair blood flow, causing chest pains and ultimately heart failure. That because the mucus in the mouth, especially under the tongue, allows easy access for the pathogenic bacteria to enter the bloodstream. The researcher also finds the fungus Candida Albicans to be active in gingivitis and periodontitis, which may explain why dentist observes fewer and less severe disorders in patients gargling the mouth with our Broad Spectrum Probiotic before swallowing because Candida Albicans retreats when exposed to lactic acid.

By reaching each single pore, our Broad Spectrum Probiotic is a great help in actively preventing aforementioned. “Vita Biosa10+ goes places toothbrushes never reach.”

As bloodwork typically detects planktonic bacteria, bacteria that are flowing freely, bloodwork will not identify bio-colonies aka plaque aka biofilm. Cardiovascular screening is the simpliest way to identifying that bio-colonies are at work.

 

In conjunction with Dr. Licio, we are working on an article on the issue Broad Spectrum Probiotics and Oral Health.

Cardio Screening has shown that VB10+ greatly improves cardiovascular health.

Why do we need good and bad bacteria?

Everything in nature is about balance. When good bacteria flourish, bad bacteria struggle to keep a foothold, when bad bacteria flourish, good bacteria struggle to keep a foot hold. Science has determined that for optimum health the balance must be  75 % good VS 25 % bad. Baseline health requires a balance of  65 % good bacteria VS 35 % bad bacteria.

Bad bacteria and good bacteria communicate with one another and this communication is what allows them to work effectively together to give us health. When this balance becomes skewed, so does the communication, hence problems develop with our health.

What disrupts this balance?

1) stress                                    4) antibiotics

2) what we eat                          5) germ a phobia parenting

3) diabetes                                6) birth by C section

 

Stress: The different hormones that are released during periods of stress, the change in our sleep, eating habits, breathing, and exercise all change the balance of bacteria. Periods of stress and the outcomes on health are individual. Science tells us that stress destroys bacterial balance and when that balance falls below the numbers for health (65% good VS 35% bad) illness results whether it be a simple cold or a deadly disease.

What we eat: Beneficial bacteria flourish with the right foods and struggle when we eat the foods that do not support their existence. Hence, the term prebiotic. Processed foods and refined sugars do not offer beneficial bacteria any long fibers to cling to. Processed foods move very quickly through the stomach part of the digestive system, and then tend to pack up and move much slower. This slowed movement along with its hostility towards beneficial bacteria allows decay and rot to occur attracting the “bad” bacteria. Science tells us that continued consumption of processed foods on an ongoing basis will disrupt the balance of bacteria and ultimately our health. There is a reason “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” has remained a popular saying. An apple is full of fiber, beneficial bacteria thrive on fiber.

Diabetes: When you have diabetes, there is a problem with how you are able to use,  and store glycogen (sugar) from either too little or too much insulin. Sugar is the problem as excess sugar feeds “bad” bacteria especially Candida. When your residence bacteria are out of balance it becomes very easy to overeat because the ability of the body to signal the brain that it is full is diminished. Most of us tend to overeat when we eat processed foods. This effect on diabetics is even more pronounced and serious because of the excess problems with sugar and the slow movement through the gut because of the lack of fiber found in processed foods.

Antibiotics: Chances are if you have ever been sick or had surgery or severe acne you have been given a course of antibiotics. Unfortunately, antibiotics do not have the ability to only search out and kill the bad bacteria, they kill both good and bad. Science tells us that after a course of antibiotic treatment many of the good bacterial strains NEVER return to our body. I do not know about you but my logic tell me this is not a good thing, they were there for a reason, they had a function. Science may not be able to determine the function, but the very fact, they were there tells me they were a part of us and our original health signature.

In our homes we use antibacterial this and antibacterial that. We scrub, clean, sterilize, purify all in the hopes of attaining health. In this attempt at attaining health we must take a look at what we are doing and ask ourselves “Now that I understand the balance… and in killing bacteria there is no discrimination.. good and bad both go.. Is this wise”? Lets take a step back even further and ask ourselves about our water. We poop and pee out antibiotics when they are in our system, we use antibacterial soap, cleaners etc in our homes, and all of this is flushed into our lagoons, septics,  or municipal sewage treatment plants, not to mention our waterways. We then have treated water coming into our homes, which is designed to purify our water, which is also flushed into our waste disposal system. I won’t even mention what this does to our soil.

Do you think there are many good bacteria left alive after this treatment regime?

Are there other options? You bet  there are, but first we need to free a small space of our minds to even consider the possibilities and the benefits.

Germ a phobia parenting: In the hospital, the premise for health is all about sterilization, killing off bacteria to prevent infection/disease and thus promote health. Our society is generally terrified of germs, disease, illness and wholly embraces the concept that bacteria is bad. It is no wonder we have parents that are terrified to let their child eat dirt. It is all about clean, clean and clean. Anti this and Anti that. We even have hand washing stations now at petting zoo’s. Couple a cesarean birth with germ a phobic parenting and the question that must be asked is” Exactly how will my child acquire the bacteria for their central bacterial system (residence bacteria) and ultimately their immune system and health?” Science has shown that children raised with pets have fewer incidents of autoimmune diseases. Science has shown that our hands (our first line of defense) are covered with good and bad bacteria. The balance that is so necessary for health. What do you think happens when we kill all the bacteria off our hands and then come into contact with bad bacteria? What happens to the balance? What does that ultimately mean to our health?

C Section Births: When a baby is born through the birth canal one of the many benefits is the acquisition of healthy beneficial bacteria from the mother. Next the baby nurses from the mothers breast, and acquire more. From age 0-4 ish the baby is busy acquiring more every time he or she sticks their fingers in their mouth, eats dirt, eats poop.. you name it. The bacteria that is acquired through this process becomes that babies central bacterial system–residence bacteria ( contains good and bad) and is responsible for the babies overall health. It is very important to realize that this system, once it is destroyed or compromised NEVER returns to its original composition. Once it is gone it is gone. Science is coming up with ways to reintroduce, but the reintroduced bacteria do not set up house like the ones that colonized in the first 4 years. C section births are a double whammy. First, the baby does not get the bacteria from the birth canal, second the Mom is given antibiotics because of the surgery so the baby is getting antibiotics in the breast milk. This means the opportunity for the baby to acquire their central bacterial system is severely compromised if not eliminated totally from these two sources! As we speak approx.70% of all births in the USA are cesarean, and approx.50% in Canada. Asthma and respiratory problems are also on the rise.

How do we get beneficial bacteria?

Residential Microbes:  From age 0 to 4 ish we have the opportunity to build our residence bacteria (central bacterial system) by the birth canal, breast milk (mother’s milk has up to 600 species of bacteria as well as the sugars that nourish beneficial bacteria while the babies biosiome is being created), and touching and eating what ever our hands come into contact with from dirt to poop. Remember, this is the only time frame in which to build your residence bacteria, the bacteria colonies that stay with you for life, unless destroyed by antibiotics, stress, the food we eat, cesarean, and or germ a phobic behaviour.

So very important to remember that:

After age 4 — How do we get beneficial bacteria?

 Beneficial bacteria must be consumed daily. the greater the variety, the greater the benefit. The most important factor of all is the delivery method. Your choices are food and supplements. Food is always the best choice. Great news!!! VB10+ is classified as a food by Health Canada.

 Why these foods?

For the most part they are high in fibre and they contain great food for your gut bacteria.

 **pick your own huckleberrries, saskatoons, blueberries, raspberrries and strawberries

Did you Know that in as little as 24 hours you can change your gut flora by eating the right foods.

In order to answer this question you must first understand our digestive system and the 7 hour window. Science tells us that in order to have beneficial bacteria provide us with the most benefits they must be able to be; fully functioning, able to withstand the acidity of our gut, able to reproduce, bond, communicate, get along and work together cohesively for the 7 hour window which is more or less the time it takes from ingestion of food to the passage of the food through the small intestine into the large intestine. All of our nutrient absorption occurs in the small intestine. Science tells us that without beneficial bacteria present in the small intestine no nutrient absorption is possible.  Without adequate fibre for the beneficial bacteria to adhere to they are just flushed through your system. Without adequate food, they are unable to reproduce, and work at building health in your body. Processed foods feed the wrong bacteria. Note: Beneficial probiotics found in VB10+ are able to make digestive enzymes.

Now lets try to navigate the myriad of products available.

A visit to your health food store is bound to leave you comparing this and that and not really knowing what on earth to do. CFU is a method of counting “colony forming units”. It is impossible to count individual bacteria so instead if bacteria have the capability of forming a colonizing unit it is counted. NPN is a “natural health number” given by Health Canada. Any supplement on the market by law requires a NPN number, the only exception is health products that have been classified as a food by Health Canada such as VB10+. A NPN number is in place to guarantee you that label and contents match in every way. E.G. if it says 60 Billion, it has to have 60 Billion at the time of packaging.

Powders: These are great for mixing in smoothies and drinks. The draw back is that once the lid has been opened the powder is exposed to moisture and the bacteria start to wake up. When they wake up they must feed so they start to eat each other. It is impossible to open and close the jar with out letting in moisture so the product degrades rapidly.

Pills: In order to aid in swallowing and to protect the bacteria from moisture the outside of the pill is either coated or sealed using pressure. The coating may be made up of plastics, or other material impervious to moisture which also means there is no guarantee your gut, especially a compromised one, will be able to break it down in order for the bacteria to be able to go to work.. If the pill is sealed using pressure the pressure kills some of the bacteria.

Capsules: It is important to realize that in a capsule there is also a second lining made of plastic because with out it the bacteria would eat through the vegetative capsule. Again, this process of using plastics means that our guts, especially a compromised one, my not be able to break down the protective capsule making it impossible to get benefits.

Fermented Foods: We have Kefir, yogurts, kombucha, fermented veggies (sour crout). Kefir/yogurt usually have one bacterial strain present. Kombusha/fermented veggies usually have 1-5 strains present. VB10+ has 10 strains present. This is possible because of the triple fermentation. Triple fermentation allows the “marrying” of different strains that require different temperatures to incubate and reproduce. This process gives you the widest array of bacteria in a bacterial community that are living and working cohesively together. That is why the results of taking VB10+ are so profound. From the first sip, to elimination the benefits are felt. These amazing powerhouses are busy doing wonderful things in your GI tract with full benefit for the crucial “7 hour window.”

RE-CAP

*excerpt taken from Ave Maria’s post on VB10+

Uses for probiotic therapy that have been discovered in other scientific studies that support a more expanded role for probiotics in your life. The following therapies have been effective in at least one scientific study and can be tried for yourself.
•Preventing Allergies – probiotic supplements for pregnant mothers have been found to help with atopic sensitivity in infants.
•Limits Lactose Intolerance – with probiotic therapy more lactose was tolerated by test subjects.
•Better Cholesterol – possibly lowers bad LDL cholesterol and increases good HDL cholesterol, bettering the HDL/LDL ratio.
•Lowers Blood Pressure – modestly in normal blood pressure ranges, but more significantly in those with elevated levels of blood pressure.
•Boosts Immunology & Reduces Infections – researchers have shown that antibiotics kill off the ‘good’ bacteria in the gut which are linked to keeping our immune systems effective at fighting infections. By taking probiotics it helps recolonize these ‘good’ bacteria possibly preventing infections and boosting the immune system.
•Reduce Eczema – probiotics helped manage Atopic Dermatitis (eczema) in children, especially those allergic and higher IgE levels.
•Increases Vitamin production – actively consuming probiotics help produce vitamins K and B12 and folic acid.
•Prevents Bacterial Vaginosis – aids in preventing vaginosis and is effective in reducing recurrence rates.

  

What results have we seen from people taking VB10+?

 Results vary from person to person, but the recurring ones reported are:

Better dental checkups–less tartar and plaque

Reduction and or elimination over a period of time of cholesterol and blood pressure medications

Vast improvement in cardiovascular health

Greatly improved lactose tolerance

Improvement and or elimination of varicose veins

Drastic improvement in allergies and asthma symptoms

Happier outlook

Improvement in ability to manage stress

Decrease in joint pain

More energy

Better sleep

Clearer skin

Clearer thinking

Better elimination

Less inflammation

VB10+ is not magic, you must give it at least a 3-4 month trial. I know personally that it helped myself when I needed it the most. It took two years, but my ulcerative colitis is gone. When I tested VB10+ on myself and 4 others, we all had better dental checkups, better sleep, better energy, clearer thinking, better skin/hair and at the 25th month we all experienced weight loss. Each one of us lost approx. 20 lbs during that one month period. None of us were dieting or trying to loose weight. It just fell off. Ever since none of us have had to watch our weight. We are finally, eating, and utilizing as we should.

 

Dollars and Sense

This is a question every prudent consumer considers prior to a purchase. Purchasing VB10+ may mean over time that you will no longer need to buy digestive enzymes, prebiotics, other probiotics, mouth rinse, facial toner, vegetable wash/spray, rennet or cultures for making yogurt and cheese. As well, over time you may be able to reduce the prescription drugs you are currently purchasing and have better dental checkups. As long as you continue to take VB10+ your health will be the best it can be.
