Covid-19 and the immune system

Gloves, masks, steralise, isolate.

All good things right now in the face of COVID-19. BUT.

There is far more focus on killing the germ, bacteria or virus than creating an internal environment that fights off anything entering the body that shouldn’t be there.

This is the western approach to medicine.

Louis Pasteur’s ‘germ theory’

Louis Pasteur’s  ‘germ theory’ implies that disease originates with the microbe. This is what set the prevailing view in the 19th century. However Claude Bernard believed that the ‘terrain’ was far more important than the ‘pathogen’ (bacteria or virus such as COVID-19), and we should focus on strengthening and supporting the body to fight off disease, instead of focusing on killing pathogens. It is actually believed that on his death bed, Pasteur admitted that Bernard was right: “the pathogen is nothing, the terrain is everything”.

Western medicine was already committed to killing the pathogen in order to restore or maintain health and  has continued to evolve on this premise. Sadly, other more natural approaches, which prioritised the terrain, soon lost their credibility. 

Evidence-based integrative medicine capitalises both, applying the best combined approach for each individual person.

The body’s internal terrain

Our terrain starts at the cell level, making up organs which make organ systems and these are all interconnected. How we live defines the health of this terrain. What we eat (diet), where we live and work (environment), by those around us (relationships), what we think and feel (thoughts and emotions), our lifestyle and of course our genes. 

Not your ordinary Algae

BioSuperfood Microalgae (BSF) are a breed apart from plain algae because of the completeness, the balance, and the synergies obtained from its selected algae when blended in precise proportions. Each alga in the blend is selected for its base nutritional value, and, with advanced hydroponics, nurtured to its peak nutritional potential: 

Spirulina

Spirulina – Pacifica and Platensis have the broadest number of proteins, vitamins, minerals, EFA, trace elements, and enzymes naturally occurring on Earth. 

Astaxanthin

Astaxanthin – derived from Haematoccocus Pluvialis, is believed to be the alga that can accumulate the highest levels of antioxidants in nature. Many studies show that it is the most powerful natural antioxidant on Earth. 

Dunaliella

is a green or yellow mono-cellular alga that contains the highest known concentration of beta-carotene: minimally 10% of the base alga weight. Dunaliella has been used in anti-cancer research and has many promising results in reduction of tumours and cancer cells. It is also very high in vitamin C, which complements Spirulina’s low content. Data suggests there is critical synergy between Spirulina and vitamin C. 

contains over 5,000 known nutrient constituents in BSF

The final BSF product contains over 5,000 known nutrient constituents and is 100% natural – not artificial. BSF’s high protein content averages 50%, with 98-99% net utilisation. BSF contains many phytonutrients, nature’s special forces such as lycopene, phycocyanin, chlorophyll, polysaccharides, sulfolipids, and others; Essential Fatty Acids (EFA) – Omega 3, 6 and 9 – and linoleic acid (GLA); thousands of active natural enzymes; powerful antioxidants such as Astaxanthin, which has hundreds of times the antioxidant activity of vitamin E and 40 times that of carrots; the vitamins A, B-complex, B12, C, E, D; all essential amino acids; all known minerals and trace elements like calcium (with 95-98% net 6x`assimilation), zinc, sodium, iron, phosphorus, and potassium, etc. 

the whole is larger than the sum of its parts

BSF are a perfect example of the saying “the whole is larger than the sum of its parts.” BSF are exponentially more nutritionally efficient than plain alga such as Spirulina or Chlorella, and because of that, have significantly more nourishing, rejuvenating, and healing effects on the body and brain.

Optimal Immune System

For our immune system to be optimal, we must support it in all these areas and nutrition is perhaps the most direct and easiest one for us to control. 

Given the enormous offering of nutrients that are naturally occurring in BSF balanced and synergistic blend, the body’s innate capacity is triggered to take what it needs to nourish and self-repair and fight bacteria and viruses such as COVID-19. BSF targets the brain glands via super nutrition, in particular the hypothalamus, pituitary, and pineal, because only they and the central nervous system they control are able to powerfully awaken a sluggish immune system.
