Hemp Seeds: Nature’s Perfectly Balanced Fat

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Video on Hemp Seed Nutrition “Say My Name, Bro”

Hemp SEEDS are best known for having high amounts of healthy essential fatty acids. In hemp-farmfact, HEMP contains a perfectly balanced 3:1 ratio of Omega 6 (linoleic/ LA) to Omega 3 (alpha-linolenic/ LNA) essential fatty acids. HEMP has all 20 amino acids including the 9 essential ones. It contains both soluble and insoluble dietary fiber. Their delicious buttery flavor will enhance any salad or dish they are used in.  Put them in your smoothies and fresh juices.

“Nature’s perfectly balanced Fat”, due to the fact that it contains the perfectly balanced 3:1 ratio of Omega 6 (linoleic/ LA) to Omega 3 (alpha-linolenic/ LNA) essential fatty acids, determined to be the optimum requirement for long-term healthy human nutrition.

hemp-seedsHemp protein is free of the tryspin inhibitors which block protein absorption and free of oligosaccharides found in soy, which cause stomach upset and gas. Two-Thirds of the protein in hemp seeds is comprised of the globulin protein Edestin only found in hemp seed. Edestin aids in digestion. The other one third of hemp seed protein is Albumin, another high quality globulin protein. This dietary fiber is comprised of 3% soluble fiber and 27% insoluble fiber. Hemp protein does not contain tryspin inhibitors which block protein absorption. It also does not contain oligosaccharides such is found in soy, which cause stomach upset and gas.

Superfoods for Energy and Endurance

By Dr. Bob McCauley

My Video on Spirulina and Tongkat Ali.

Spirulina is the highest Energy Food on the planet.  It is incredibly easy to digest and translates into instant energy as the body his arms it.

spirulina platensisSpirulina is a perfect whole food, a true Superfood.  They have perfect compliments of protein (60%) carbohydrates (19%), fats (6%) bio-available minerals (8%). They are not extracts, concentrates or amalgams of vitamins and minerals that look good on paper such as the vitamin and mineral supplements that people generally believe to be healthy. In reality, the body does not absorb 90% of these vitamin supplements because they are dead, void of enzymes. One of the strongest nutraceuticals available, it is a powerful antioxidant and an extremely high energy food.

 Risk of Low Testosterone

  •     Prostate Cancer
  •     Dementia
  •     Stroke
  •     Osteoporosis
  •     Heart Disease/Cardiovascular Disease

Benefits of Testosterone

  •     Improved Sexual Performance
  •     Stronger Bones
  •     Weight Stability
  •     Greater Stress Resistance
  •     Improved Metabolism
  •     Improved Brain Function Memory
  •     Increased Muscle Mass

 Natural Solution to Low T (Testosterone) or, better known as losing your “mojo”.  Tongkat Ali naturally stimulates the production of testosterone in the body.tongkat_ali_root

Tongkat Ali is the root of the Eurycoma longifolia tree. It has been consumed in Malaysia for hundreds of years as an aphrodisiac since it naturally produces Testosterone. Our Tongkat Ali is standardized with 50% glycoproteins and 35% glycosapaneins, which are the active ingredients found in Tongkat Ali. It is a 100:1 concentrate that is completely natural, safe and non-toxic. The advantage of combining a concentrated herb such as Tongkat Ali  with a complete food such as Spirulina is that the protein allows the body to absorb and utilize the herb much more safely and effectively.

Results showed that E. longifolia Jack produced a dose-dependent increase in sexual performance of the treated animals. Further results also showed that E. longifolia Jack promoted the growth of both ventral prostate and seminal vesicles as compared with the control, but the growth of sexual accessories at 800 mg/kg of butanol, methanol, water and chloroform fractions of E. longifolia Jack was less than that of testosterone treated group. The present study therefore gives further evidence of the folkuse of E. longifolia as an aphrodisiac.  Study with Tongkat Ali

Best Herb in the World – Combined with Chlorella into Tablets

By Dr. Bob McCauley

My Video on Mucuna with Chlorella.

The advantage of combining a concentrated herb such as Mucuna with a complete food such as Chlorella is that the protein allows the body to absorb and utilize the herb much more safely and effectively.

Mucuna Pruriens (aka Velvet bean) is most famous for stimulating production of the mucuna_pruiensHuman Growth Hormone, the most important hormone necessary to slow the aging process.  It is the only herb I am aware of that will produce significant amounts of HGH naturally.  It doesn’t happen overnight.  A person needs to consume about 1 – 2 tsp of Mucuna Extract (15%) for about a month before he/she will begin to see results.  After a few months you will notice your gray hair disappearing as it gets back it’s original color.

By the age of 30 the production of each HGH has almost completely stopped.  Now the process and accelerated aging has begun and this is why with each decade we grow exponentially and older.  There are many artificial forms of HGH on the market, however I would suggest avoiding them like the plague.  There is no way to artificially produce HGH in the brain that will not leave you negative side effects than shall pay the price for the future.

L- Dopa found in Mucuna contains natural secretagogues which may support the body’s ability to stimulate the natural release of growth hormone. L-Dopa is a precursor to the production of dopamine, meaning that it is a necessary ingredient for that production.  The blood carries the dopamine into the brain, where it naturally increases HGH production from the pituitary gland. The increased dopamine levels also optimize the production of other hormones, including testosterone, leading to increased sex drive and improved sexual performance for both men and women, beneficial in stimulating muscle growth, as well as burning fat from fat cells. The seed powder of Mucuna has long been used in traditional Ayurvedic Indian medicine.  L-Dopa significantly affects dopamine metabolism in the striatonigral tract.

  • Improved sleep (promotes deep sleep)
  • Reduced body fat & decreased cellulite
  • Decreased wrinkles
  • Improved skin texture & appearance
  • Increased bone density and reversal of osteoporosis
  • Increased lean muscle mass
  • Improved mood and sense of well-being
  • Enhanced libido & sexual performance
  • Increased energy levels
  • Improved cholesterol profile & regeneration of organs (heart, kidney, liver, lungs)
  • Strengthens immune system
  • Dosage: 8 – 12 tablets per day.

Nation Shocked! Dr. Bob says: “Told you so.”

By Dr. Bob McCauley

vitaminsGreat health is found in the produce section of your supermarket.  Researchers have concluded that multivitamins don’t do a thing to improve your health. CBS News did a story on it.  I discovered that myself 15 years ago in 1998.  I was taking 7 or 8 vitamin supplements per day back then until I discovered that everything I wanted to put in my body to make it healthy is right there in Spirulina, a blue green algae.  I started taking it, then discovered Chlorella, a green algae, which was different, and even better in a lot of ways.  Spirulina and Chlorella are whole foods, not supplements.  They are foods that can be taken in powder or tablets for convenience. Vitamin supplements are concoctions.

Then I discovered raw fruits and vegetables and found that ALL my vitamins and minerals could be found in natural sources.  I realized that taking multivitamins and minerals was a fruits - vegwaste of money because there was no way they would work.  They have some “designed” just for men, some “designed” just for woman.  I often wondered back then – when I had no idea where nutrients actually came from – what if I took the woman’s vitamins.  Would my muscles go limp and I my beard would stop growing.

What nonsense all these designer multivitamins are.  I moved to Spirulina, Chlorella and raw foods and my energy increased, as did my stamina and recovery.  I realized in less than one week, after 30 years of taking vitamin supplements, that they are useless.

Minerals_and_our_healthAs far as minerals I am of the mind we need to supplement them.  After being on a raw food diet for more than 5 years I found that I was deficient in many minerals since it is nearly impossible to get all the minerals we need exclusively from the foods we eat.  The most effective mineral supplements are Angstrom Minerals, which are taken by holding them under the tongue so they can be absorbed into the bloodstream directly through the sub-lingual duct.  I wrote a book on Angstrom Silver, and how to take angstrom minerals.

Now “science” has at long last “discovered”  what I found to be true nearly 15 years ago.  Vitamin Supplements are completely worthless.  Health is found exclusively in the raw world.  The authors of the study said it best:

Enough-LOGO“We believe that the case is closed — supplementing the diet of well-nourished adults with (most) mineral or vitamin supplements has no clear benefit and might even be harmful,” concluded the authors of the editorial summarizing the new research papers, published Dec. 16 in the Annals of Internal Medicine. “These vitamins should not be used for chronic disease prevention. Enough is enough.”

Indeed.

50/50 – Two Most Powerful Foods in One Tablet

By Dr. Bob McCauley

My Video on Spirulina/Chlorella 50/50 Tablet

DynoMill vs. Pressure-Release Chlorella

A building constructed from inferior materials is ready to collapse at any moment, if not from external then from within. The body built of inferior materials awaits the same fate. The basic elements of the human cell must be constructed from the exact nutrients it has been using over millions of years of evolution chlorella-pondor it will fold under the attack of any disease. Detractors of algae dismiss it as pond scum, which is a laughable assertion stated out of shear ignorance. The nutritional content of Spirulina or Chlorella make them the most powerful foods in the world. No other foods could possibly compete with them. Of the nearly 70,000 species of algae that exist, most are quite nutritious. A few are toxic and a few are powerful nutraceuticals capable of supplying the body with nutrients unimagined by most other foods. A nutraceutical is any food that provides the body with the proper nutrition so the body can heal itself.

spirulina platensisSpirulina and Chlorella are perfect whole foods, true superfoods . They have perfect compliments of protein (60%) carbohydrates (19%), fats (6%) bio-available minerals (8%). They are not extracts, concentrates or amalgams of vitamins and minerals that look good on paper such as the vitamin and mineral supplements that people generally believe to be healthy. In reality, the body does not absorb 90% of these vitamin supplements because they are dead, void of enzymes. On the other hand, eating Spirulina or Chlorella is like eating any other whole food such as a banana, apple or broccoli.

Algae are the oldest foods in the world. Fossil records show that Spirulina and diving_C_cellChlorella have existed for billions of years essentially unchanged for all that time. They have both developed strategies of survival against harshly unfavorable conditions such as drought, radiation and even strong man-made poisons that have driven many other plant organisms to extinction.

A tremendous amount of scientific research has been done on both Spirulina and Chlorella from universities and medical institutions from around the world. They have proven to be one of the best solutions world hunger problems. They are also used as feed for all kinds of live stock. Once tableted, they will last up to a year with refrigeration and even longer if vacuum-packed.

Which one should you take?

Even though the nutritional profile of Spirulina and Chlorella are quite similar they are completely different foods, as different as apples and oranges. Although many of the nutrients in these foods are the same, they will assimilate and benefit the body in different ways. This is also why we should attempt to get as many different types of foods into our diet as possible. The greater array of nutrients in any food, the more nutritious it is.

Spirulina is a nitrogen based blue green algae and has the predominant odor of seaweed. Chlorella is an oxygen based green algae that has the predominant odor of fresh grass. Chlorella gets its name from the high amount of chlorophyll in it, up to 10 times that of chlorella_cellsSpirulina which is itself quite high in chlorophyll. Chlorella belongs to a class of algae called chlorophyta.

Spirulina is an extremely high energy food, great before or after a workout and is used widely for joint soreness and joint support. Chlorella is excellent for digestion, heavy-metal detoxification, and is a immune system builder. Therefore, the answer to the question as to which of these two algae should you take is that you should definitely have both of them in your diet.

Protein, the Great Regulator
Spirulina and Chlorella are complete proteins meaning they provide the body with the eight essential amino acids, yet they go much further. They are 60% protein in the form of amino acids that are in the right ratio to one another. There is a lot of confusion and misinformation about protein, how much protein is actually in certain foods and what the protein actually consists of. For instance, most people assume Protein Chainmeat is comprised of 100% protein when it is only 19% protein on average. Meat only has eleven amino acids and is heavily weighted in only four of them, which means that the body is receiving a very lopsided version of protein. What the body needs is a broad array of amino acids that are in the correct proportion to one another such as Spirulina, Chlorella and even wheat grass. Wheat grass juice is only 20-22% protein (higher than meat) compared to over 60% for Spirulina and Chlorella, which is the highest amount of protein of any whole foods.

 

Dosages – How much to take. When to take it.     (formulaIt is NOT complicated)

Chlorella: A maintenance dosage of Chlorella is about 3 – 5 grams per day. Although you will not see significant changes taking such a small amount of whole food, your body will be getting a broad array of nutrients unlike it has seen before. Since Chlorella is a detoxifying whole food, not a concentrate or extract, a person can eat as much as they desire without any fear of it becoming potentially toxic in any way.

Chlorella is best taken before a meal with probiotics, our friendly bacteria ( Acidophilus and Bifidus ). Chlorella causes probiotics to multiply at four times the rate of normal.

Maintenance Dosage: 3 – 5 grams/day
Significant Part of the Diet: 6 – 10 grams/day
Immune System Builder: 11 – 14 grams/day
Primary Source of Protein : 12 – 19 grams/day
Healing Purposes & Heavy Metal Detoxification: 20 – 30+ grams/day

Best before a meal to aid with digestion.

Spirulina: A maintenance dosage of Spirulina is 3 — 5 grams per day. Although their nutritional profile may appear to be quite similar, Spirulina and Chlorella are completely different foods. Spirulina is great before a physical workout. I take 5 – 6 grams religiously before any kind of physical training. Stamina, endurance and recovery are significantly improved with Spirulina. After a strenuous workout where the body is pushed to its limits, an additional 10 – 20 grams should be taken during the following 24 hours to rebuild the body and muscle tissue that has been torn down.

Spirulina should also be taken 15 – 30 minutes before a meal to help prepare the stomach for proper digestion since it also helps accelerate the reproductive rate of probiotics.

Maintenance Dosage: 3 – 5 grams/day
Significant Part of the Diet: 6 – 10 grams/day
Immune System Builder: 11 – 14 grams/day
Primary Source of Protein : 12 – 19 grams/day
Healing Purposes: 20 – 25+ grams/day

Also great before a workout.

Protein: The Most Misunderstood Nutrient

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Proteins are large biological molecules consisting of one or more long chains of amino acids.   Proteins were first described by the Dutch chemist Gerardus Johannes Mulder and named by the Swedish chemist Jöns Jacob Berzelius in 1838. Today, protein is used as an excuse why someone shouldn’t become a vegan or vegetarian.  Lack of is protein is “the reason people become anemic” when they don’t eat enough animal protein, meat, fish, eggs and/orProtein Chain dairy, which is partially true.  See my video on why we don’t need to eat animal protein to be healthy.  Protein is only one of numerous nutrients required by the body for our health.  It certainly is not the most important nutrients when you stop to consider how critical oxygen is for example.  I believe the most important nutrient is Chlorophyll, in my opinion, for a number of reasons.

The reason that eating animal protein is one of the worst things for our health is simple. Let’s first establish that everyone always cooks their animal protein.  Rarely does anyone eat raw meat, fish, eggs or dairy, although there is a strong movement to consume raw dairy, in particular raw goat’s milk.   I am not against eating raw animal protein, but it certainly is not necessary for us to consume it if we wish to be healthy.  Eating raw animal protein is known as the Raw Paleo Diet – although definitions of the Paleo Diet vary dramatically.

Peptide Bond

Peptide Bond

The problem with animal protein is that it is a pre-formed protein chain of amino acids that are then brought to high temperatures during the cooking process.  The higher the temperature and the longer the animal protein is cooked at these temperatures, the more harmful the animal protein becomes to our health.  In a protein chain, what holds the amino acids together (links them) are peptides.  These peptide are temperature sensitive, and when exposed to high temperatures they break down and eventually disintegrate turning the protein into mush.  This is what makes cooked animal protein so dangerous to our health.  Although it is not desirable to eat cooked plants, exposing plant proteins (pre-digested amino acids) to high temperatures does not have the same deleterious effects on our health because these peptide chains do not exist in plant protein.

Spirulina and Chlorella are perfect proteins because they provide the body with the nine essential amino acids; yet they go much further.  Their amino acids are in a natural 400px-Peptidformationball.svgratio to one another.  Animal protein, on the other hand, has a limited complement of amino acids that are heavily weighted in some, yet drastically low in others.  This is one reason why the body does not react well to them and why they lead to so many diseases.

There is a lot of confusion and misinformation about protein, how much is in certain foods and what their amino acid structure actually consists of.  It is assumed that meat is comprised mostly of protein when it is only 16 – 20% protein on average.  Beef, for instance, has eleven amino acids and is heavily weighted in four of them, which is a lopsided amino acid complement.  What the body requires is a broad array of amino acids that are in the correct proportion to one aminoAcidsanother such as that found in Spirulina and Chlorella.  Even wheat grass juice is only 18% protein compared to over 60% for Spirulina and Chlorella, the highest percentage of protein of any whole foods.

Based on a traditional protein diet of meat, fish, eggs and dairy products, a 150-lb. adult would need 54 grams of animal protein per day in order to meet their recommended daily allowance.  Since meat is 18% protein on average, you would need nearly 300 grams of meat. If this were true of algae, a person would need to consume a minimum of 90 grams of algae to equal 54 grams of protein.  However, I am extremely active and take only 30 grams of algae each day, which translates into about 18 grams of protein.  Some would consider 30 grams of algae an enormous amount to consume each day, yet an extremely small amount of protein.  While 30 grams of algae may look like a lot when you actually see it, we need to remember that algae is a whole food, which helps put its recommended dosages into perspective.   Video: Defending the Vegan Diet.
