The vegan lifestyle is incredibly expensive and harmful. Why are people still vegan?

By Dr. Bob McCauley, ND

Quora Question:

The vegan lifestyle is incredibly expensive and harmful. Why are people still vegan?

My Response:

That’s quite a promise you have their. The vegan lifestyle, or the vegan diet, is not expensive at all. In fact it’s one of the least expensive ways to eat and be healthy. What is the highest cause in the grocery store is meat and fish. Vegetables and fruits are cheap by comparison.

Having said that I have no idea why you would suggest that being a vegan is harmful. Who exactly is it harmful to?  If there is a diet that is harmful it would be the diet that needs to kill animals to support a tablets. That’s the harmful diet.

Serrap130: High Potency Serrapeptase – Systemic Enzymes

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Serrap130 provides 130,000 active enzyme units (SPUs) of enteric coated Serrapeptase, a systemic enzyme produced through fermentation.

Serrap130 reduces inflammation throughout the body and works much like an adaptogen allowing the body to heal itself without the burdensome presence and distraction of inflammation.

The enteric coating allows these sensitive enzymes to survive the acidic conditions of the stomach, thus allowing them to pass into the circulatory system and maintain high activity levels for longer periods of time. Serrap130 is the ultimate weapon in fighting deadly inflammation.

* Respiratory Support
* Sinus Health Support
* Muscle, Joint and Tissue Support
* Encourages Oxygen Levels
* Encourages Muscle Recovery

CoreZyme: Systemic Enzyme Blend

By Dr. Bob McCauley

CoreZyme TM systemic blend supports:

  • Overall Metabolic Health
  • Healthy Circulation
  • Muscle Recovery
  • Joint & Tendon Health
  • Vital Energy Levels
  • Healthy Stamina
  • Healthy Heels and Feet
  • Normal Circulation

Ingredients

  • Enteric-coated Serrapeptase (phthalate-free): a powerful fibrinolytic enzyme.
  • Bromelain: Proteolytic enzyme found in the pineapple plant; known for immune support.
  • Papain: Derived from papaya; supports the body’s natural immune response.
  • Lipase: Supports the breakdown of fats into essential fatty acids that are needed for healthy circulation.
  • Amylase: Breaks down carbohydrates and starches into simple sugars.
  • Rutin: Bioflavonoid that provides antioxidant support.
  • Amla: Natural source of Vitamin C, supports regulatory immune response.

Our enteric-coated serrapeptase has been formulated with the use of Methacrylic Acid Copolymer (MAAC), a safe food-grade compound used in the pharmaceutical industry with no reported side effects. Without enteric coating, enzymes will denature, or lose their effectiveness, in the stomach.

In addition, various proteases in CoreZyme help break down proteins and amino acid chains, promoting total body support.

CoreZyme also supports healthy fibrin levels in the circulatory system.

Fibrin is a protein that the body produces when healing. The protein precursor fibrinogen is converted into fibrin, which forms a layer of connective tissue inside the blood vessel. The fibrin strands assemble into a net-like structure over an affected vessel and harden, forming a “patch” to prevent further damage.

While fibrin is meant to have a protective function in the body, too much fibrin buildup can cause problems.

CoreZyme is a proprietary formula and efficacy-maximizing enteric coating make it the most potent blend on the market to support normal fibrin metabolism, metabolic health, and joint, muscle, and tissue health.*

Our enzymes are manufactured in a ISO 9001:2000 and GMP certified facilities, and undergo rigorous quality testing.

DOSAGE: Take on an empty stomach (30-60 minutes before or 2 hours after meals).

  • Days 1-5: Take 1 capsule, 3 times a day.
  • Days 6-11: Take 2 capsules, 3 times a day.
  • Day 12+:  Take the Therapeutic Dose of 3 capsules, 3 times a day.

CoreZyme is free of pesticides, chemicals, preservatives, animal derivatives, dairy, yeast, fish or shellfish, peanuts, and tree nuts. All individual enzymes are kosher-certified ingredients, and suitable for vegetarians and vegans.  CoreZyme is manufactured in the USA and follows GMP guidelines.

“Spirulina Is An Anti-Cancer Superfood,” According to Research

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Spirulina (SP) (Arthrospira platensis; previously Spirulina platensis) is a filamentous blue-green microalga (cyanobacterium) with potent dietary phytoantioxidant and anticancerous properties. We investigated the chemopreventive effect of SP against 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA)-induced rat breast carcinogenesis, and further studied its underlying mechanisms of action in vitro. Remarkably, SP cleared DMBA-induced rat mammary tumors, which was clearly confirmed by morphological and histological methods. SP supplementation reduced the incidence of breast tumors from 87% to 13%. At the molecular level, immunohistochemical analysis revealed that SP supplementation reduced expression of both Ki-67 and estrogen α. More interestingly, molecular analysis in the in vitro experiments indicated that SP treatment inhibited cell proliferation by 24 hours, which was accompanied by increased p53 expression, followed by increased expression of its downstream target gene, Cdkn1a (alias p21 or p21(Waf1/Cip1)). In addition, SP increased Bax and decreased Bcl-2 expression, indicating induction of apoptosis by 48 hours after SP treatment. To our knowledge, this is the first report of in vivo chemopreventive effect of SP against DMBA-induced breast carcinogenesis in rat, supporting its potential use in chemoprevention of cancer.

Abstract

Spirulina platensis is a blue-green alga used as a dietary supplement because of its hypocholesterolemic properties. Among other bioactive substances, it is also rich in tetrapyrrolic compounds closely related to bilirubin molecule, a potent antioxidant and anti-proliferative agent. The aim of our study was to evaluate possible anticancer effects of S. platensis and S. platensis-derived tetrapyrroles using an experimental model of pancreatic cancer. The anti-proliferative effects of S. platensis and its tetrapyrrolic components [phycocyanobilin (PCB) and chlorophyllin, a surrogate molecule for chlorophyll A] were tested on several human pancreatic cancer cell lines and xenotransplanted nude mice. The effects of experimental therapeutics on mitochondrial reactive oxygen species (ROS) production and glutathione redox status were also evaluated. Compared to untreated cells, experimental therapeutics significantly decreased proliferation of human pancreatic cancer cell lines in vitro in a dose-dependent manner (from 0.16 g•L-1 [S. platensis], 60 μM [PCB], and 125 μM [chlorophyllin], p<0.05). The anti-proliferative effects of S. platensis were also shown in vivo, where inhibition of pancreatic cancer growth was evidenced since the third day of treatment (p < 0.05). All tested compounds decreased generation of mitochondrial ROS and glutathione redox status (p = 0.0006; 0.016; and 0.006 for S. platensis, PCB, and chlorophyllin, respectively). In conclusion, S. platensis and its tetrapyrrolic components substantially decreased the proliferation of experimental pancreatic cancer. These data support a chemopreventive role of this edible alga. Furthermore, it seems that dietary supplementation with this alga might enhance systemic pool of tetrapyrroles, known to be higher in subjects with Gilbert syndrome.

“Nearly all disease can a tracked to a nutritional deficiency” – Linus Pauling

By Bob McCauley, ND

As I was saying, I am not the only one to have reached the conclusion that disease can be overcome, and that the body is capable of healing itself of any disease. There are many aspects to staying healthy at any age, but nutrition is definitely at the heart of it.

Glutathione: the mother of all antioxidants

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Glutathione is an amino acid referred to as “the mother of all antioxidants”.  Glutathione is a natural antioxidant that is key to the immune system.  Glutathione is produced and used by every single cell in the human body and has a very wide range of scientifically-proven health effects. Glutathione is an antioxidant produced in our body’s cells. As we age, Glutathione levels in the body drop precipitously.

 

Glutathione:

  • Reduces oxidative stress
  • Anti-Inflammatory
  • Reduces cell damage fatty liver disease
  • Improves insulin resistance
  • Supports cardiovascular Health
  • Helps Controls blood sugar levels
  • Prevents Kidney problems
  • Joint Support
  • Supports Respiratory Support

Glutathione was discovered in the year 1888. Glutathione is such a ubiquitous and versatile functioning molecule that shortly after its discovery in 1888 by J. de Rey-Pailhade, this small tripeptide molecule was deemed so important with so many vital functions that it was considered coincident with the “origin of life.”

Sir Frederick Gowland Hopkins (1861-1947) of Cambridge University is also credited with a role in Glutathione’s discovery and characterization and its name. (See Hopkins, FG and Dixon, M, J Biol Chem [1922] 54, 527-563). He received the Nobel Prize in 1929.

Why this water have pH 9 or high??

By Dr. Bob McCauley

Question from Dr. Bob:

English is not my first language, but . . . Calcium and magnesium hydroxide are insoluble in water. But we don’t see any white residue in commercial alkaline ionized water bottle. These particles (as an alkaline agents) are probably filtered, my question is ” if calcium and magnesium hydroxide are filtered, why this water have pH 9 or high??” thank you I’d be happy and it is my pleasure if you tell me this.  – Maryam

My response:

Thanks for your email and I’m happy to know about your interest in alkaline ionized water.  Perhaps some mag/cal will be filtered but not all of it. Most is dissolved, meaning it cannot be filtered. Even with the high pH there is not enough time to filter those minerals before they precipitate out in the high pH environment of the water. So the white film that accumulates inside a glass over time is the precipitate, but as you can see it was too small to be filtered.  I hope this answers your question.

ProbioZyme: Great Health Depends On Great Digestion

By Dr. Bob McCauley 

All disease comes from our diet.

ProbioZyme is a fortified blend of probiotics, prebiotics and enzymes specially formulated to support intestinal and digestive health.  It is specifically designed to combat yeast infections by delivering larger amounts of live bacteria into the intestinal tract, where they germinate, colonize and flourish. The central tenant of Dr. Bob’s health philosophy is the concept that all disease comes from our diet.  Great health does not derive from the foods we eat but rather what nutrients our bodies are capable of absorbing and assimilating. ProbioZyme gives our bodies the tools to do just that.

* Intestinal Health Support

* Colon Health Support

* Digestive Support

* Immune Support

Dr. Bob’s Probiotic Blend

Acidophilus, L. casei, L. rhamnosus, L. lactis, L. plantarum, L. brevis, L. salivarius, S. thermophilus, B. bifidus, SEBiotic® (B. coagulans), S. boulardii

Dr. Bob’s Enzyme Blend

Protease, Cellulase,Chitosanase & Peptizyme, Serrapeptase (enteric coated).

Dr. Bob’s Prebiotic Blend

Fructooligosachharides (FOS), Alfalfa (leaf, stem), Emblica officinalis extract (Amla), Papaya Juice, Fulvic Acid, Ionic Minerals, Iron.

Maintenance Dosage Take 2 capsules in the morning and 2 capsules at bedtime on an empty stomach. Take capsules 30 to 60 minutes before or 2 hours after a meal with 8 oz. of water.

Store in cool, dry place

Probiotics are critical to human health. Lactobacillus acidophilusis a friendly bacterium necessary for the digestion of proteins. It also reduces fungus infections, lowers blood cholesterol, aids in general digestion, and enhances nutrient absorption. Deficiencies in probiotics may lead to constipation, bloating, intestinal toxicity, gas, bad breath, Candida, mold, and fungal infections.

Probiotics create vitamins in the body. Bifobacterium bifidium is key for the synthesis of vitamins K and the B vitamins, including vitamin B12. Deficiency of Bifobacterium bifidium can cause constipation, gas, and elevated levels of ammonia from protein digestion, which can lead to liver toxicity. A high level of ammonia in the blood stream decreases appetite and leads to nausea and vomiting. Probiotics are commonly used in the treatment of cirrhosis of the liver and hepatitis. Bifobacterium bifidium can be used as a douche to fight yeast infections or as an enema to fight harmful bacteria and improve bowel function, but it should also be taken orally.
