Ribose Creates ATP = Energy

By Dr. Bob McCauley

  • RIBOSE Improves Athletic Performance
  • RIBOSE Increases Endurance
  • RIBOSE Supports Cardiovascular System
  • RIBOSE is a Low Glycemic Sugar
  • RIBOSE is the Backbone of the ATP structure
  • ATP is where the body gets energy
  • RIBOSE Reduces recovery time
  • RIBOSE Increases energy supplies in heart and muscle tissue
  • RIBOSE Improves cardiac efficiency
  • RIBOSE Increases tolerance of low oxygen environments
  • RIBOSE exists in every cell of the body
  • RIBOSE improves physical performance of inactive people
  • The more RIBOSE that is available to the body, the more quicky ATP levels return to normal.
  • RIBOSE reduces muscle pain and fatigue
  • RIBOSE rejuvenates cardiac and skeletal muscles

RIBOSE is a sugar (polysaccharide) produced by the body and is used in the production of Ribose_ATPATP (adenosine triphosphate).  ATP  is a critically important enzyme that creates the energy currency molecule. ATP is the most commonly used “energy currency” of cells from most organisms. It is formed from adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and inorganic phosphate (Pi), and needs energy for its formation.

When you exercise, some of the ATP that your body uses for energy is lost from your cells and must be replaced. Ribose is the only compound the body uses as a starting point to replace these energy-producing molecules. However, ribose production in the heart and skeletal muscles is a slow process, and cannot always keep up with the loss of energy during ischemia (insufficient blood flow) or strenuous, intensive exercise. Under normal conditions, it may take several days to completely restore ATP molecules that are lost due to poor circulation or intensive exercise.

atpRIBOSE improves athletic performance which increases the body’s ability to exercise by boosting muscle energy. It has been found to improve symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and coronary artery disease. RIBOSE is used to prevent symptoms such as cramping, pain, and stiffness after exercise.

RIBOSE is given intravenously in order to image the extent of damaged heart muscle in people with coronary artery disease.

  • Fatigue and exhaustion often occur as a result of depletion of the vital molecule called atp-structureATP in human muscle.
  • Injured or heavily used muscle is particularly vulnerable to low ATP supply and is slow to recover those levels.
  • RIBOSE  improves the cardivasclar system  following heart attacks by improving how the heart pumps blood in people with congestive heart failure.
  • Better heart muscle function after RIBOSE supplementation can lead to better delivery of energy-rich blood to skeletal muscles, revving them up for increased activity.
  • Increased ATP levels in skeletal muscle following RIBOSE supplementation can help to reduce the muscle pain and fatigue that prevent people from keeping up their vital exercise regimens.

Health Expert: “I Won’t Even Run to the Mailbox” – “Raw Foodists Are Idiots!”

By Bob McCauley, ND

Michael Savage, conservative talk show host, proves that you can be highly educated in what would appear to be health-related fields and yet know nothing about health.  Dr. Savage obtained a master’s degree in Medical Botany, as well as Medical Anthropology.   He earned his PhD. from the University of California at Berkeley in Epidemiology and Nutrition Sciences.

michael-savageSavage began to read about this the other day on his radio program where he essentially said that any kind of exercise short of light bicycling was extremely dangerous for anybody over the age of 30.  For the record, I run vigorously every day and bring my heart rate to least 120.  I have been doing this for the last 30 years and show absolutely no signs that it is causing health problems.  Quite the contrary it is one of the things that continues to keep me as healthy as I am at 58 years old (2016).

Dr. Savage’s educational credentials, that of a Ph.D. in nutritional sciences, demonstrates without any doubt why people should be suspicious of those who have been educated by the mainstream institutions of higher learning.

“. . . all of you people are idiotic – idiotic to think that Raw-food is good for you.  All you deluded fools who think that by eating raw all you will live forever,  I have a little news for you.  I’m one of the few people in the media who actually know something about food and nutrition because I have a doctorate in the field and in particular have written many many books in the field prior to becoming a talk show host shall – take it from an expert – the reason men learn to use fire to cook his food was because A – you are not an animal and B – Raw-food is very dangerous.  It is a full of microbes.  It is filled with toxins of various kinds.”

“The great anthropologist Claude Lévi-Strauss, the famous anthropologist wrote a book called The Raw On the Cooked.  And in that book philosophizes to the difference between a civilized man and one who was not civilized is that the civilized man learned to cook his food.”

You can call cooking your food civilized all you want.  Cooked food is – ultimately – the source of ALL Disease.  

“I know there is a trend in America for eating raw foods.  Better watch and listen to me very, very, very carefully.”

Dr. Savage then goes on to relate a story of a Hawaiian man who became extremely ill andsavage the doctors could not figure out why.  Some months later it was determined that his food had been contaminated with rat feces and the toxins had made him deathly ill.

“He had a terrible illness, months of recovery, paralysis, etc.  What is the moral to this story?  Well, you can make a joke out of it if you wish or you can choose to stop eating raw food.  Your mother was right, cook your vegetables.  Your mother was right, wash your vegetables . . .  For god sakes we listen to Uncle Michael.  Wash your vegetables.  Cook your vegetables.  Don’t eat raw food.  But stop listening to what these whack jobs are telling you.  I know the story – ‘enzymes’ they’ll tell you, ‘enzymes’.  They don’t know what they’re talking about.  They don’t know what an enzyme it is.”  Michael Savage [Michael Savage Show]

“I don’t have anything against eating or running.  Don’t get me wrong.  I ran for years and I stopped running when I was 30 when I heard an inner voice say to me stop running, stop running, stop running, stop running, stop running running running running running. I was running up the mountain trail every day . .  .  and eventually an inner voice told me stop running, and I never ran again.

An inner voice told me to keep running, keep exercising and eat raw foods.  S0 whose ‘inner voice’ should we listen to.  The advice that my inner voice offered me resulted in perfect blood work at 57 years old.  What kind of shape are you in Dr. Savage?

I ride a bicycle every day – but moderately.  Exercise2You need to take the Asian approach to exercise which is moderate, moderate, moderate, moderate, moderate, you want to elevate your heart rate very slightly.  Don’t [do it] to the point where you’re thumping in your of the head and you’re going to get a heart attack or a stroke.  I can guarantee you.  Or you’re gonna burn out at a very young age.  Obviously you are going to burn out your joints from running.  That you know already.

I don’t know that as a matter of fact.  I’m 58 years old and still work out vigorously daily.  I don’t have any joint issues.  I am not heading for a heart attack or a stroke and I certainly am NOT burned out.

How many runners do you know that by the time they are 40 had a knee replacement, a hip replacement?  So watch out with this extremism in your exercise, take the Taoist approach.  Believe me, I know what I’m talking about in regard to this and it’s the same with foods.  Stop with the extremism.”

This is what you can expect if you live on a cooked food diet.

marathonI believe Dr. Mercola, who I often disagree with, is completely correct to say that running Marathons are not healthy.  I’ve been a runner my entire life and I have always held this philosophy about running.  While I was in high school and college I would often run more than 10 miles a day, although I’ve never run a race in my life over 5 miles.  Running a marathon drains the body of all its resources, in particular its minerals.  One thing to remember about exercise is that it creates a city in the body as well as free radicals.  Therefore excessive exercise works against your health rather than for it.  My cousin nearly died of a heart attack while running a marathon because a piece of plaque became dislodged from one of his arteries then blocked his heart from pumping blood.  He lived on a meat and potato 100% cooked food diet, and those who live on that kind of diet can expect these kind of health problems.  Sorry, but it’s true.  I’m only the messenger: True health ONLY comes from Raw Fruits and Vegetables.

Dr Savage, stick to the politics and writing, things that you’re actually good atNutridiot-Savage
because when it comes to health you are yet another ‘know nothing’, or as I like to say, a nutridiot.  You are a classic nutridiot.

Yet Another Reason To Take Control of Your Health

By Dr. Bob McCauley

John Stossel recently announced that he has lung cancer and that he is going StosselCommonCoreto survive.  That is, he will survive the cancer but not the medical establishment and their treatment of their clients, ie customers.  You know – customers – the people who are the reason you actually have a job because they need services.

Customer service is sclerotic because hospitals are largely socialist bureaucracies. Instead of answering to consumers, which forces businesses to be nimble, hospitals report to government, lawyers and insurance companies.  Stossel

Adding to that is a fear of lawsuits. Nervous hospital lawyers pretend mistakes can be prevented with paper and procedure. Stressed hospital workers ignore common sense and follow rigid rules.  Stossel

John-StosselThe hospital does have “patient representatives” who tell me about “patient rights.” But it feels unnatural, like grafting wings onto a pig.  Stossel

Leftists say the solution to such problems is government health care. But did they not notice what happened at Veterans Affairs? Bureaucrats let veterans die, waiting for care. When the scandal was exposed, they didn’t stop. USA Today reports that the abuse continues. Sometimes the VA’s suicide hotline goes to voicemail.  Stossel

Who was it that said: “If you liked your health care plan you can keep your health care plan.”  But you’re not going to want to because the service, like ALL the service you get from the government SUCKS.  Keep yourself healthy – the consequences of not doing so do not look terribly appealing.

Spirulina Feeds the Starving

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Chlorella and Spirulina, the two most powerful foods in the world, hold the keys to feeding the world.  They are the most nutritionally dense foods, and have the broadest array of spirulina_bnutrients of any foods know.  They are also incredible inexpensive to cultivate compared to the amount of nutrition they possess.  I have said for many years that these foods could feed the world and they if anyone is starving and/or malnourished this would solve their problem.

Well apparently someone else has caught on to the idea and is actually solving the problem of malnutrition in children in India.

Chlorella-spirulina-tablets-powder-hi-resThe Department of Women and Child Development has launched a dietary supplement programme for anganwadi children in Karnataka claiming that the initiatives carried out by three major corporates had yielded positive results in addressing malnutrition.  Deccan Herald

Once health officials in Karnataka, India started giving spirulina to children they saw the results immediately.  

According to the department’s data, there are 23,295 “severely malnutritioned” children. But, it has set aside a budget of Rs 3.6 crore for administering Spirulina to 25,000 children.  Deccan Herald

chlorella-pondsAnd the results were so good, they increased the program and are planning to start using it in others India states. 

[Consuming spirulina] has brought down malnutrition levels from 33 per cent to eight per cent. Following this, a decision was taken to supply Spirulina to all the districts in Karnataka.  Deccan Herald

If only they’d started doing this sooner, but at least they are doing it.   Spirulina and chlorella are capable of feeding the world.

Rush Limbaugh and the Futility of Disease Telethons

by Dr. Bob McCauley

Rush Limbaugh’s EIB Network Cure-A-Thon Raises More Than $3 Million for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society – yet no one has ever been helped in fighting cancer or finding a cure for Cancer.

Like every “disease ribbon”, “awareness bracelet”, and money raiser – people want to help, but that is not where the answer lies in curing cancer, Alzheimer disease or any disease.   The cure for disease is found in the produce department of your favorite supermarket.

The final number’s gonna come somewhere north of $3 million, in our 26th year of doing this.  That amount of money generated essentially in a three-hour radio program, but it wasn’t three hours because we didn’t go wall-to-wall content on the radiothon.  I bet you, if I went and tabulated it, we probably spent 45 minutes total, because we did the rest of the program as well.   Rush Limbaugh

“The road to hell is paved with good intentions”.    Shoe fits perfectly on this one.

By Dr. Bob McCauley

  • Holy Basil Is Known As the “Elixir Of Life” tulsi
  • Legendary Ability to Promote Longevity
  • Radiation Removal Properties
  • An Adaptogen: Strengthens the Body’s Response to Physical/Emotional Stress
  • Promotes Balance and Homeostasis Throughout the Body
  • Holy Basil Supports the Cardiovascular System
  • Regulates Insulin Levels to Help Balance Blood Sugar
  • Holy Basil has Healing Power
  • Excellent For Digestion
  • Supports the Respiratory System  
  • Contains Antibacterial, Antifungal Properties
  • Contains Anti-Inflammatory Properties

tulsi2Holy Basil is known as the “Elixir of Life” because of its legendary ability to promote longevity.  It is an adaptogen meaning it enhances the body’s natural response to physical and emotional stress, promoting balance and homeostasis in the body.  Holy Basil supports the cardiovascular system and regulates insulin levels.  It has healing power.   It is excellent for digestion and the respiratory system.  It has Antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties.

The health benefits of holy basil, also known as tulsi, include oral care, relief from respiratory disorders, as well as treatment of fever, asthma, lung disorders, heart diseases and stress.  Holy Basil, which has the scientific name Ocimum Sanctum is undoubtedly one of the best medicinal herb that has been discovered.

radiationBasil is well known for removing radiation from the body.   The radio-protective effects of Holy Basil are mainly attributed to the flavonoidsorientin and vicenin contained in the herb.  These flavonoids have been shown to protect against radiation-induced cellular damage in human cells through increased anti-oxidant properties that include enzymes, free radical scavenging and reduced lipid peroxidation.

Pink Ribbon Mafia Gets an Earful

By Dr. Bob McCauley

I have always warned about the “Ribbon Mafia” – in particular the “Pink Ribbon Mafia”. These are the groups that raise money for the “cure” to every disease imaginable.  They are fundraisers, not cure finders, and everything – in the end – is about money.  We now need to endure an entire month – October – of men wearing pink, NFL and College football players wear pink jerseys and pink shoes, all done for “raising awareness” which is really about money raising – and nothing more than that.

Laurie Becklund, who passed away from breast cancer this year and was a staff writer at the

PHOTO: Medicinex.Stanford.edu

LA Times wrote a piece entitled “As I Lay Dying” at the end of her 20 year battle with breast cancer.  She tells it like it is, and said exactly what I have been saying for years.  The Ribbon Mafia – who no one dares speak against, or not put on pink when they are told to, is nothing less than a racket, and could be best described as a charity racket in my opinion.

I had more than 20 mammograms, and none of them caught my disease. In fact, we now have significant studies showing that routine mammogram screening, which may result in misdiagnoses, unnecessary treatment and radiation overexposure, can harm more people than it helps.” – “As I Lay Dying”by Laurie Becklund

At the top of my list of Ribbon Mafias is the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Here Your_cards
is a group that is more concerned with donating money to Planned Parenthood than it is about cancer research and finding a cure for cancer.  Boy did that ever backfire on them.  I found it difficult to get any work done for the next week or so since I just couldn’t stop giggling, even though Komen insisted that the response to their stupidity has been “very very favorable“.  Right, sure it was.   What a joke.

The most powerful organization in the breast cancer universe, Susan G. Komen , has raised $2.5 billion over the last 20 years, much more than many corporations will ever earn. Yet Komen channels only a fraction of those funds into research or systems to help those who are already seriously sick. Most of that money continues to go to a breast cancer “awareness” campaign that is now painfully out of date.  Becklund wrote.

I adore Becklund’s dissection of the Susan G. Komen foundation and I wish she would have done more to expose this completely fraudulent organization that bullies their way into board rooms to make demands of support and thakoment everyone wear PINK damn it.  Apparently wearing pink must actually scare cancer cells.  Why would they want to find a cure for a disease that is making them millions of dollars each year.

“We are each, in effect, one-person clinical trials. Yet the knowledge generated from those trials will die with us because there is no comprehensive database of metastatic breast cancer patients…”Becklund wrote.

“Promise me you’ll nepink-ribbonver wear a pink ribbon in my
name or drop a dollar into a bucket that goes to breast cancer ‘awareness’ for ‘early detection for a cure,’ the mantra of fund-raising juggernaut Susan G. Komen, which has propagated a distorted message about breast cancer and how to ‘cure’ it,”
Becklund wrote

Far more people die of lung, colon and rectal cancer, so why the focus on breast cancer?  Because it’s about women, and it’s a woman’s cause and they need to “march together to fight this disease” as if marching and defiance and awareness ever cured anyone of anything.  But it makes good sound bites.  Besides, 25% of all people who die of breast cancer are men.  Oops. 

1. Lung and bronchial cancer: 792,495 lives

2. Colon and rectal cancer:268,783 lives

3. Breast cancer: 206,983 lives  Live Science

Promise me, I told my friends and family, that you’ll never say I died ‘fighting a courageous battle with breast cancer. Becklund wrote

I love this quote because people who get very ill, especially with cancer, and especially children, suddenly become courageous.  I have never understood this.

Susan G. Komen’s income was $287,409,269 in 2014 and allegedly 79% went into its programs for education, research and support, yet besides being aware, the money spent for over 30 years ($2.6 billion worth) did little for the survival rates of the breast cancer that actually kills – MBC.  Althealth Works.

Pretty in pink, and pink is pretty to a lot of girls.  But money is green, and that is the pink-ribbonprettiest color in the universe to the Komen foundations of the world.  If you want to protest next October during “wear pink or else” month refuse to put on any pink and instead wear green, the color that Ribbon Mafia really is about: the money.

“Pink is pretty, but it does not disguise the fact that metastatic breast cancer kills,”  METAvivor take-action page.

I will leave you with this thought: The body is capable of healing itself of ANY disease.  You need to stop putting the wrong things into it and start putting the right things into it.  

Put on a HOT PINK t-shirt and let that sink in.

Best Ginseng Product on the Planet

By Dr. Bob McCauley

I am a connoisseur of ginseng.  I have been eating raw ginseng, dried ginseng consuming ginseng tinctures and drinks of all kinds.  I absolutely love ginseng.  GinST15 is an enzyme fermented that offer 15x better absorption at 4x a faster rate. ginst15-30ml

  • Homeostatic Balance
  • Healthy Blood Glucose
  • Stress Management
  • Mental Clarity & Focus
  • Immunity
  • Sustained Energy
  • Restful Sleep



  1. First, Ilhwa uses white ginseng root that has not been peeled, as peeling
    removes the minor rootlets and hair rootlets that carry key bioactive compounds. 
  2. Second, they use a proprietary low heat vacuum extraction of the whole unpeeled root, which maintains the vitamins, amino acid profile and organic germanium lost in the high heat steaming process used in traditional processing.
  3. Third, Ilhwa harvests the roots at the optimum time between the 4th and 5th year. In comparison, red ginseng extract available from most companies use the traditional 6 year harvested root.
  4. Finally and most importantly, Ilhwa uses a proprietary enzyme fermentation process to improve absorption. High-yield enzyme fermentation mimics the fermentation that occurs in the intestine to transform ginsenosides to an end-stage metabolite called compound K or IH-901. Compound K has been proposed to be the most bioavailable metabolite from colonic fermentation.viii 

Fermented ginseng extract containing this metabolite have been shown to have many adaptogenic qualities such as strong antioxidant,ix anti-stress,hepatoprotective,xi anti-allergy and anti-inflammatoryxiiactivities as well as support healthy glucose and lipid regulation.xiii In addition, GS15-4® has been clinically proven to provide 15 times increased absorption, 4 times faster absorption and 4 times more consistent absorption (Figures 2-4). In addition, the fermentation process also provides an improved taste profile compared to conventional ginseng extracts. Improved bioavailability means improved adaptogenic support for fatigue and stress.

Many studies have been done on GinST 15 which is shown in research via its metabolite ginst15-1marker IH901 and Compound K. One of the areas where Ilhwa has created numerous studies is energy creation, blood glucose and blood lipid management.

Il Hwa’s research is so substantial that they received a KFDA certification for a functional health claim for blood glucose management.
Absorption over time

ginst15Regular ginseng extract takes 12 hours to get maximum absorption while Gin ST15 extract will get maximum absorption in 3 to 4 hours. This illustrates the far greater absorption of GinST 15.

(Please Note: the scale of 0-50 ng/ml for Ginseng Extract and 0-300ng/ml for GinST 15. A different scale for each had to be used so that a comparison can be seen.)

Consistent Absorption
With standard ginseng extract each individual possesses different capability in img-6metabolizing ginsenosides. Absorption is inconsistent, and there is a wide range of average times in reaching the maximum plasma concentration.

In addition, only a small amount of ginseng extract is absorbed.

When GinST 15 extract is taken, absorption is approximately 4 times more consistent.

How is GinST 15 used?

GinST 15 has a broad affect on health and well being. It is virtually not contra indicative.

It harmonizes and augments a broad range of protocols and supplements. So the applications for GinST 15 are remarkably diverse as a stand alone supplement and as part of a formulation.

The GinST-15 Solution
As the world leader in ginseng science, Ilhwa was determined to find a solution to this img-4problem of absorption, and in 1999 they secured 2 patents for creating ginseng extract metabolites via human bacteria. They continued their diligent work in the next decade developing a high yield enzyme fermentation process with their famous ginseng extract creating 2 more patents in 2009 and 2010.

img-5GinST 15, the 21st Century Ginseng was born.

When GinST 15 extract is taken, a far larger amount is absorbed in the blood compared to standard ginseng extract. (15 times more AUC)

The GinST 15 extract provides 4 times faster absorption than standard ginseng extract.

Natural Source of Taxol – Anti-Cancer Food

By Dr. Bob McCauley

  • Anti-Inflammatory 
  • Anti-cancer
  • Antioxidant 
  • Immune Builder

Taxane is a chemical substance derived from a yew tree of the Pacific Coast: used yew tree
experimentally as a drug in the treatment of cancer.  It is derived from Yew trees – Taxus Brevafolia – and bushes and used to kill dividing  cells, especially tumor cells.  

Before its pharmaceutical value was discovered, the Yew was routinely slashed and burned during logging operations.   However, with prolonged manufacture of the chemotherapeutic drug, Taxol, survival of the species was threatened by long-term harvesting.  Bark harvesting totally destroys the tree so they started using the tips of the branches in the Summer months when the Taxane is at it’s highest concentration in the plant.  

The taxanes are mitotic inhibitors, meaning that they inhibit tumors primarily by preventing cells from entering mitosis, a process of cell division. The taxanes accomplish this by inhibiting microtubule polymerization. In addition, taxanes appear to stimulate apoptosis, or programmed cell death, which is often inhibited in cancer cells.  Toxipida

yew1The only natural source of Taxol, approved by the FDA, was the bark of Taxus brevifolia for initial supplies. Subsequently, the manufacturer of Taxol developed the semi-synthetic Paclitaxel, eliminating the need for great amounts of Taxus brevifolia bark.  Paclitaxel is now manufactured from the bough tips of nursery grown cultivars of European yews and is approved by FDA.

Maintenance: 2 – 3 capsules per day
Health Challenge: 3 capsules 3 times daily.
