One of the most common questions asked, over the last 25 years is “Why do the Biosuperfood formulas support immunity so quickly?”
“Let us remind ourselves that the cyanobacteria alga, an important component of the formulas, was the first living cellular organism on earth. This alga initiated cellular respiration and photosynthesis as the first living cell. When it’s understood that all compounds / nutrients in these formulas are “primary” or “active”, it becomes evident that these microscopic foods are thousands of times more active, more rapidly delivered, and more efficient for cellular energy and immunity than any isolate supplement, herb, and the regular diet.”
Immunity is not a separate system of the body. When it comes down to fighting infections and free radicals, each cell in the body has its own internal defence system, or immunity. It is at this level where the primary antioxidant (AOX I) Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) plays a major role. SOD is an antioxidant enzyme produced in our bodies to neutralize a specific oxygen-derived FREE RADICAL called superoxide. If SOD levels are kept adequate through optimal nutrition, exercise, and avoiding known toxins (junk foods, heavy alcohol, smoking, environmental, etc.), cells will remain much younger for much longer.
The vitamin industry continues to sell us separate/isolate supplements such as vitamin C, beta-carotene, resveratrol, etc. Often these supplements are taken in doses much higher than what the body can use/benefit from. Many foods like berries, and spices like turmeric are touted as powerful antioxidants. It is true that these contain some antioxidants, but they are considered “secondary antioxidants (AOXII)” because they only play a buffer role, which offer a limited form of protection as these separate molecules are often not assimilated/utilized by the cells and are quickly eliminated from the body.
The reason for this “secondary” status is that the antioxidants in these foods/spices and/or separate supplements rarely come along with all the cofactors required for their activation in the body. Minimally, they require copper (Cu), zinc (Zn) and manganese (Mn) among others to actively protect the cell’s cytoplasm (the substances enclosed by the cell’s membrane where most of the cellular activity occurs), and to protect the cell’s mitochondria where energy is derived.
