Can Spirulina Boost The Immune Systems Of Athletes?

By Dr. Bob McCauley

A study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition demonstrates that spirulina is fantastic for working out, and even builds the immune system.

At the end of six weeks, the results suggested that the immune systems of the Spirulina group experienced protection from the effects of strenuous exercise.  Medical News Bulletin

This was based on the fact that the related T-cell counts remained constant for this group after the six week period, whereas a weakened immune system would have shown a change in the count. In contrast, the placebo group did show unhealthy changes in T-cell counts after the study period.  Medical News Bulletin

You can find the study on PubMed:  An attempt to induce an immunomodulatory effect in rowers with spirulina extract.

CONCLUSION:

The results of this study imply that supplementation with spirulina extract may protect athletes against a deficit in immune function (especially, anti-infectious function) associated with strenuous exercise, and may cause a beneficial shift in “overtraining threshold” preventing a radical deterioration of immunity.  An attempt to induce an immunomodulatory effect in rowers with spirulina extract.

Dr. Bob’s Sea Salt

Dr. Dr. Bob McCauley

Dr. Bob’s Sea Salt is hand-harvested by skilled salt farmers, using time honored, hand-crafted methods dating back centuries. It is unprocessed, natural and unrefined, a balanced mixture of essential minerals in the correct proportion that closely resembles our body’s own chemical make-up. Electrolytes provide critical conductivity in the body. They produce the “sparks of energy” that keep our bodies functioning. Without that “spark” created by the positive ion from quality salt, the body’s homeostasis, or compromised. As energy is exerted, body salts are lost through perspiration, and excretion through the kidneys.

  • Heart Health
  • Brain Function and Health
  • Water Balance within the Body
  • Balance of Ions
  • Protects Against Sunstroke
  • Anti-aging – should be used on the skin
  • Regulation of Bodily Fluids
  • Maintains Acid/Base Balance
  • Eliminates Excess Carbon Dioxide
  • Stops Muscle Cramps
  • Regulates Glucose Absorption

Like protein, our bodies cannot store salt for future use. It must be replenished regularly, especially during and after strenuous exercise. The watery part of blood, the plasma, has a concentration of salt and other ions that is remarkably similar to sea water. A balanced sea salt with the right proportions of sodium, magnesium, and potassium, along with the other minerals and trace elements found in seawater, fill the extracellular fluids of the body allowing nutrients in and waste to pass out through the cell walls.

Why are companies using the word “plant based” instead of just saying vegan?

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Quora Question:

Why are companies using the word “plant based” instead of just saying vegan?

My Response:

Vegan didn’t exist as a word until around 10 years ago as far as I can remember. There are militant vegans who run around spray painting butcher shop and throwing rape whistlers into the back yards of slaughter house owners in the middle of the night. Militant vegans are giving the rest of us a bad name in short. Plant-based sounds better and it doesn’t have an ideology behind it.   I’m a vegan because the plant-based diet is the healthiest diet.

REBUTTAL: 5 Similarities Between Religion and Alternative Medicine

By Dr. Bob McCauley

YouTuber Drew from “Genetically Modified Skeptic ” attempts to align religion with alternative medicine.  Honestly, I’m not sure what alternative medicine exactly is, or how it’s defined.  According to Drew, both religion and alternative medicine (natural health) are pretty much the same thing.  I debate those points with our friend Drew in this video.

How are religion and alternative medicine are similar according to Drew:

  1. Anecdotal evidence
  2. Placebo Effect
  3. Confirmation bias
  4. Rejection of Science
  5. Emotional manipulation

Fulvargine For A “Blast” Of Nitric Oxide and Energy

Fulvargine is a blend of L-Arginine and Fulvic Acid.  L-Arginine is a powerful circulatory stimulant used in the production of nitric oxide in the body which causes arteries to dilate for improved blood flow.  L-Arginine stimulates the release of human growth hormone (HGH), which is a key to longevity.  It is an immune system builder that improves circulation, promotes muscle growth and cardiovascular health. L-Arginine regenerates the liver and improves libido.

Fulvic Acid is an excellent carrier that has the ability to transport nutrients around the body better than any other element. L-Arginine and Fulvic Acid work synergistically to enhance their nutritional impact on the body.  For peak performance, take Fulvargine around 30 minutes before a work out since it opens up the blood vessels and significantly improves circulation which results in improve cadio-function as a result of increased Nitric Oxide production in the body.

We combined L-Arginine with fulvic acid in liquid form for immediate effect.  If you’re an athlete then you know that nitric oxide is required for a great workout.  L-Arginine is an essential amino acid which is required by the body for use in several capacities.  Athletes use Arginine for the production of Nitric Oxide and Human Growth Hormone (HGH), which is one of the keys to longevity.

  • Produces Nitric Oxide in the Body`
  • Opens the Arteries and Increases Blood Flow 
  • Assists in the release of Human Growth Hormone
  • Immune Builder
  • Improves cardiovascular function
  • Encourages wounds to heal
  • Regenerates the Liver.
  • Promotes muscle growth
  • Improves circulation  

Nitric oxide causes blood vessels to open wider for improved blood flow.  L-arginine is converted in the body into a chemical called nitric oxide.  L-arginine is an amino acid that opens up the blood vessels.

Nitric oxide was named “Molecule of the Year” in 1992 .  Three US scientists—Robert F. Furchgott, PhD, Louis J. Ignarro, PhD, and Ferid Murad, MD, PhD received the 1998 Nobel Prize for Physiology and Medicine for its discovery.

REBUTTAL: Ben Shapiro Claims Eating Meat Is Necessary To Be Healthy

By Dr. Bob McCauley

He talks fast, very fast. When he talks social issues and politics I don’t pay much attention. But when Ben Shapiro – www.DailyWire.com Editor in Chief, talks about health issues he usually demonstrates that his knowledge about health is about that of the average person which is almost nothing.

Should we eat meat? Well, his wife, who is a medical doctor, says “Yes, there are nutrients in meat that you require.” Is Mrs. Shapiro a nutritionists? Has she studies nutrition? Medical doctors get absolutely zero training in medical school about nutrition. None. Zip, zero, Nada. So why would Ben refer to his wife as an authority on whether or not we should eat meat. No offense to Mrs. Shapiro, MD, but you might as well use a grade school teacher or the mayor of a major city as your “authority” on nutrition because they know every bit as much about health as any medical doctor, including Mrs. Shapiro, MD.
