Recently (May-July), the manufacturer ran out
of stock of our most popular product,
BioSuperfood-f3, is the advanced Forté formula,
bio-algae concentrates product
for people. BioSuperfood-f3 has the most
which are super nutrients that can cross the blood-brain barrier. I learned
way how important feeding the brain is. Here are the ramifications when one
shorts the brain on the adequate nutrition it needs.
Back in 2002, I became an accidental entrepreneur
starting our Internet company, www.OptimumChoices.com,
offering holistic products and solutions for people and pets. I needed a lot
of creative ideas and bold action to leap from the corporate world, after
the 'dot.com' crash, to owning my own business. That same year I was also
introduced to BioSuperfood-f3, the single best superfood (NOT
an isolated supplement or drug) that I have ever taken. After
experimenting with this amazing superfood, I determined 5-6 capsules/day was
good for my (150 lbs.) body. Well, it obviously worked, as
Optimum Choices quickly
became the #1 independent distributor in the world of BioPreparation for
pets. Then in 2012, I had an accidental slip & fall, sustaining a
concussion. The resultant mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI) was like no
previous health challenge I had ever faced. None of the holistic remedies
and treatments I knew worked and Western medical science was not up to date
in brain injury treatment at that time. It has been only since the NFL
concussion lawsuit (2011) that Western medical science has devoted
significant money to brain research. New concepts of brain neuroplasticity
and treatments of neurofeedback, hyperbaric oxygen chamber and meditation
for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) have come to the forefront. For the mTBI
(mild Traumatic Brain Injury) symptoms I experienced see (Open
Letter from the Owner).
accident, I kept increasing my BioSuperfood-f3 until I found 12-14
capsules/day were adequate to keep me functional and progress in my
recovery. I spread out each serving, taking 2 capsules every 1-2 hours
throughout the day. Fast-forward eight years to 2020 and after 8 years of
therapy (chiropractic, osteopathic, bodywork), medical nutritional brain
amino acids, calming and sleep supplements, etc.), acupuncture,
neurofeedback and other holistic methods, I finally have reduced my
BioSuperfood-f3 intake to 7-8 capsules/day, while still maintaining progress
in my mTBI recovery and operating our Internet business. Then the
BioSuperfood-f3 out-of-stock situation occurred.
Deficient Astaxanthin Consequences
In order not to run out, I started rationing my
remaining BioSuperfood-f3 and substituting BioSuperfood-f1 instead. I took 4
capsules of BioSuperfood-f3 and 2 capsules of BioSuperfood-f1 per day. This
was almost a 50% reduction of BioSuperfood-f3, with its abundant
antioxidants, super nutrition for the brain. Here is what I experienced
after reducing my daily intake of BioSuperfood-f3:
Not able to handle business stress and
uncertainty of COVID-19 life as well, causing more neck and shoulder
tension pulling down on my upper cervical bones resulting in
Less stamina to hold my osteopathic
manipulations. Symptoms of structural imbalances from accident came back
one week after treatment.
TMJ imbalance from accident triggered by
dental work for crown. Required one chiropractic visit plus two
osteopathic sessions to correct.
6-month lab test showed an increase in
Hemoglobin A1c and Glucose levels into the high range. Now my
osteopathic physician wants me to start taking blood sugar and/or
cholesterol normalizing supplements.
My blind spot in the eye with severe glaucoma
How can I attribute all the above degradation
to less BioSuperfood-f3? Although not scientifically proven, here are the
nutritional attributes of Astaxanthin, one of two antioxidants species and
one of four total microalgae, in BioSuperfood:
times more effective as an antioxidant than b-carotene.
to 1000 times more effective in inhibiting lipid peroxidation as an
antioxidant and has greater anti-inflammatory capability than Vitamin E.
Almost 4 times the antioxidant capacity of lutein, thus offers superior
protection against UVA and UVB light-induced oxidative stress.
More stable in scavenging and quenching free radicals than b-carotene,
canthaxanthin and zeaxanthin.
Highly potent in enhancing T1 and T2 helper cells and IgM and IgG
(secondary immunity) production in the gut.
More effective than lycopene and lutein in enhancing liver microsome
detoxification activity (enzymes that metabolize drugs).
Supplies super nutrition to cross the blood-brain barrier
nourish the eye, brain and central nervous system. This may alleviate
oxidative stress that contributes to ocular and neurodegenerative
diseases such as glaucoma and Alzheimer's.
Capable of reducing blood glucose levels by nearly 40% in laboratory
mice administered with an Intraperitoneal Glucose Tolerance Test (IPGTT),
as well as preserving pancreatic beta-cells from oxidative damage and
increasing insulin sensitivity.
Aides in the prevention of diabetic nephropathy.
Reduced knee pain as reported by the 2000 Winter Games Russian hockey
players as being the best (among astaxanthin, Ginseng and a Chinese
herb) for alleviating pain, particularly knee pains, for recovery on the
bench between plays, for post-game energy recuperation and blood
WebMD said more evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of
astaxanthin, here is a list of potential benefits:
Age-related vision loss (age-related macular degeneration; AMD).
May improve damage in the center of the retina.
Indigestion (dyspepsia). May reduce reflux symptoms in people with
indigestion, especially due to the H.
High cholesterol. May help reduce triglycerides blood fats and
increase high-density lipoprotein (HDL or "good") cholesterol and lower
total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL or "bad") cholesterol.
Male infertility. May help increase the pregnancy rates of partners
of men considered to be infertile.
Menopausal symptoms. Early research shows taking astaxanthin,
vitamin D3, lycopene, and citrus bioflavonoids daily reduces menopausal
symptoms such as hot flashes, joint pain, moodiness, and bladder
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Research shows that taking astaxanthin,
lutein, vitamin A, vitamin E, and safflower oil helps to reduce pain.
Sunburn. Might reduce skin damage caused by the sun's "UV" rays.
Wrinkled skin. improves how quickly skin bounces back (elasticity),
reduces fine lines and wrinkles in middle-aged people, improves moisture
content in the skin and improves the appearance of skin wrinkles.
Based on our holistic research and the
potential benefits from
WebMD, now I see why I experienced the above decline in my mTBI
recovery after decreasing BioSuperfood-f3. So, why did I choose to take less
capsules/day and substitute BioSuperfood-f1, instead of the more potent
BioSuperfood-f2 or even
BioPreparation-F3+ (for pets) that I recommended to all our clients?
Because we already had an opened bottle of BioSuperfood-f1 on hand and I did
not want to waste it. By saving money using up our BioSuperfood-f1, I spent
more money on chiropractic adjustments, osteopathic manipulation treatment,
bodywork massage, anxiety and depression remedies.
As the old British saying goes, "Do not be
penny wise and pound foolish." To save a few pennies by using an old bottle
of BioSuperfood-f1, which has 50% or less of Astaxanthin compared to
BioSuperfood-f3, I incurred headaches from subluxations, TMJ pain, decreased
stamina and energy, anxiety,
and blood sugar levels. We suggest the
for anyone with the above degenerative symptoms and all seniors (with or
without symptoms) to nourish the brain, instead of supplementing the
symptoms. It is better and more cost-effective to take holistic action now
before symptoms show up or blow up. As my personal example showed, by trying
to save money on the cheaper formula BioSuperfood-f1, I spent more money in
the long run on holistic and medical treatment, isolated supplements to just
fix my depression and lost revenues from mistakes and inefficiencies on my
job. Even though BioSuperfood-f3 costs twice as much as BioSuperfood-f2, it
is 5 times more efficient at balancing the body and feeding the brain. I do
not even need a calculator to know spending 2X as much money to get 5X the
benefits is a good deal.
