Fulvic Suur (Acid)

Inleiding?

Fulvic suur kry sy naam van die Latynse beskrywing, “Fulvus” wat diep geel, goudkleurig  en ligbruin kleure voorstel.

Ons lewe in ‘n sameleweling vandag waar ons weet dat ons nie voldoende voeding inneem in die veral die groentes wat ons inneem nie. Weens die massaproduksie metodes wat vir die oog goed en indrukwekkend lyk, maar op voedingsvlak arm in waarde is.

Daarby word meeste produkte gevoed met kunsmatige voedingstowwe in kunsmis, insektisiedes, pestisiedes en herbisiedes wat bydrae tot minerale verarming van grond en grondwaardes vir voeding in plante.

Hoeveelheid en ook vinnige omset en produksie is geld. En in hierdie produksiemetodes kort vrugte en groente belangrike spoorelemente en ander belangrike voedingswaardes vir mens en dier. Laat ons wel met ‘n klomp chemiese residue waarvan meeste bewus is. Insluitende fulvic suur.  In hoeveelhede wat Moeder Natuur onder normale omstandighede wou hê mens en dier moet inneem.

Fulvic acid of suur is ‘n organiese produk wat oor Tyd onstaan het weens mikrobiese afbreek van plante deur die eeue.

Fulvic suur:- ‘n Kritiese aspek tot enige Lewe

Fulvic suur blyk onbekend te wees in die algemene gesondheidsbegrip van mense. Tog word fulvic suur se waardes en bydraes deur baie wetenskaplikes intensief bestudeer. Min mense besef dat fulvic suur ‘n kritiese element in hul gesondheid is, so belangrik soos water, sonlig en suurstof.

fluvic-acid-research-findings

Plante kan nie sonder suur bestaan nie en sonder plante, kan die mens en dier ook nie bestaan nie.

Fulvic suurword in plante en in grond gevind. Dit het daar twee krities-belangrike funksies. Om uit die grond

  1. minerale en spoorelemnte te absorbeer, asook alle ander natuurlike voedingstowwe en
  2. om dit dan oor te dra na plante, waar dit metaboliseer word vr gesonde groei.

Wanneer plante hul leeftyd voltooi het en kompos word, word fulvic suur terug in die grond in geplaas en die sklus herhaal.

infographic-nutrient-deficiency-from-medications-img1

Soos by plante, het fulvic suur dieselfde aksie by die mens en sy diere. Fulvic suur het ‘n uitsonderlike spektrum van voordele. En alle lewensvorme deel soortgelyke boustene van lewe, naamlik lewende selle.

Fulvic suur dra aan mens en dier minerale en voeding oor in lewende selle wat gevind word in oerplante. Dit verhoog selenergie, wat oorskakel in lewensenergie, selgesondheid, vinniger herstel van siektes en beserings asook mense met uitdagende gesondheidstoestande wat gevind word in ouderdom.

Belangrikheid van Fulvic suur in selle

Om die belangrikheid van Fulvic suur te verstaan, moet mens by die selle van die mens self begin.

fulvic-missing-farmer_large

Selle, en veral mense wat die gevolge van onderdom besef en siektes besef, weet dat gesonde selle ‘n fundamentele komponent is van lewe. ‘n Enkele bevrugte eiersel ontwikkel in werklikheid  in 1 000 000 000 000 00 (10 tot die mag 14) selle.

Selle word van mekaar en van die eksterne omgewing onderskei met membrane.

Meeste mens en of dierselle bestaan uit ‘n nukleues of soortgelyk wat al die chemiese informasie (DNA) van die mens en dier beskrywe en, wat graag maksimale uiting wil gee aan die genetiese potensiaal van die mens of dier.

Wanneer selle hul tyd uitgeleef het en verouder, begin skade intree en ook siektes ontstaan. Dit is so eenvoudig soos dit.

Dit is dus krities dat die mens wat omgee, sorg dat lewende selle voortdurend gevoed word om ouderdom en siektes af te weer en of te keer dat dit ontstaan.

Fulvic.Benefice14

Voorkoming, is beter as beheer.

Voeding speel dus n belangrike rol om selle gesond te hou. Tekorte sal ouderdom versnel en so ook siektetoestande. Vir ‘n sel om maksimaal te kan funksioneer moet dit;

” Bio-aktief wees, en Bio-beskikbaar”

Spoorelemente, minerale en vitamienes het ‘n baie beperkte “Bio-beskikbaarheid” leeftyd in die dierlike sel.  Hul kan net “Bio-beskikbaar ” word en wees sou hul met ander substansies en komponente ingeneem word waarin hul natuurlik voorkom.

Al hierdie komponente vorm ‘n sinergistiese omgewing wat hul absorpsie van ‘n verskeidenheid belangrikse en nodige voedingstowwe in die selle maksimaliseer om hul jonk, funksioneel, bio-aktief en lewend te hou.

Hierin speel fulvic suur ‘n belangrike sinergistiese rol om daardie funksionele omgewing te skep.

Minerale in Fulvic Suur

Fulvic suur los in natuurlike vorm minerale in plante en die grond op en stel (bied) dit dan in ‘n opneembare vorm aan plante aan. Wanneer nie-organiese kompenente aan fulvic suur blootgestel word wat belangrike natuurlike minerale bevat. (klei, klip, skalie) word dit ook afgebreek en bio-beskikbaar aan plante aangebied wanneer dit met water in aanraking kom.

Op die manier word dit ook in die dierlike liggaam bio-beskikbaar en bio-aktief.

Fulvic suur bevat volgens die Literatuur die rykdom van sowat 70 minerale en spoorelemente, al die voedingswaardes wat oor Tyd en oertye geleef het, aminosure (boustene van lewe) aminosuikers, peptides, nukleo-sure, phytochemiese en phyto-voedingstowwe.

humic-acids-role-in-improvi

WIKIPEDIA beskrywe phyto-chemiese substansies as elemente wat natuurlik in plante voorkom om hulself van verskeie skadelike elemente te beskerm. Navorsing bewys egter dat vele van hierdie Biologiese verdedigingsmeganismes funksionele belangrikheid vir die mens demonstreer by die beheer of voorkoming of bestuur van kanker, metaboliese sindrome (dikderm, spysverteringstelsels) en ander siektes wat van belang is.

Daar is meer as 4000 phyto-chemikalië bekend wat betrokke is by verskillende voorkomende siektetoestande. Vele van hierdie elemente en of substansies tel as van die heel belangrikste komponente anti-kanker voedingstowwe.

Sommige belangrike en bekende phyto-chemikalië (Word in Engels gelos sodat lesers dit makliker kan Google en opsoek)

  1. Antioxidant action : allyl sulphides, carotenoids, flavonoids, polyphenols – protect our cells against oxidative damage and reduce the risk of developing certain types of cancer.
  2. Hormonal action : isoflavones – imitate human estrogens and help reduce menopausal symptoms and osteoporosis.
  3. Stimulation of enzymes: protease inhibitors, terpenes, indoles – stimulate enzymes that make the estrogen less effective and could reduce the risk of breast cancer.
  4. Interference with DNA replication: saponins – impede replication of cell DNA, thereby preventing the multiplication of cancer cells; capsaicin – protects DNA from carcinogens.
  5. Anti-bacterial effect: allicin – has anti-bacterial properties.
  6. Physical action: proanthocyanidins – bind physically to cell walls, thereby preventing the adhesion of pathogens to human cell walls.

Fulvic suur is dus die komponent in die liggaam van plant en dier wat voedingstowwe wat Bio-beskikbaar en Bio-aktief maak op sellulêre vlak. Fulvic suur word erken vir sy vermoë om balanse tussen selstrukture te bring, asook biologiese prosesse in selgesondheid te stimuleer, selle se energievlakke te optimaliseer om gesondheid te bewerkstellig.

Algemene bydraes en waardes van Fulvic Suur.

Fulvic suur se minerale en spoorelement-inhoudelike het die volegnde eienskappe;

  • Dit is dit ‘n waardevolle natuurlike elektroliet wat verskeie mikro-elemente vervang wat deur die vel deur middel van sweet verloor word, veral by oefening en sport.
  • Verander en bind “vegetale” silika na kollageen en versterk daarmee ook alle “connective tissue” (verbindingsmateriaal of gom tussen selle) in die liggaam. Dit is dus veral by plooie waar kollageen ‘n “anti-plooi” of dan gom funksie het omdat die die verbinding tussen selle versterk wat plooivorming verhoed.
  • Phyto-chemiese elemente in fulvic suur het verskeie antibakteriese, anti-virale, anti-inflammatoriese elemente wat die immuunsisteem help om daarteen te veg.
  • Fulvic suur stimuleer ‘n gesonde pH-balans tussen die onderskeie selle met verskillende pH- vereistes.
  • Fulvic suur, weens sy bio-chemiese samestelling deur Moeder Natuur, het die natuurlike vermoë om effektief sy minerale, voeding- en helingswaardes direk te neem na alle organe in die liggaam waar dit maksimaal opgeneem kan word en bio-aktief funksioneel kan raak ter wille van selgesondheid.

Fulvic suur se inname se doel

  • Om dit wat die liggaam nodig het in vandag se moderne lewe, terug te plaas in die ligaam wat nie in die gebruik van groente en ander moderne voedingstowwe beskikbaar is vir goeie velsorg en gesondheid nie.
  • Fulvic suur is ‘n robuuste anti-oksidant, wat vrye radikale neutraliseer in die liggaam veral in selle, en vrye radikale se invloed minimaliseer in die beskadiging van selmembrane van lewende selle, proteiene en sel DNA.
  • Fulvic suur is op molekulêre vlak saamgestel in 45% strukturele suurstof in massa wat direk in selle afgelewer word. Dit dien as ‘n bron van skoon volhoubare energie, diametries verskillend van kort skadelike geblikte energiebronne in kaffeiendrankies en suikerkoeldranke.
  • Fulvic suur dra by om van skadelike patogene, toksienes, bakterie en virusse ontslae te raak weens sy meganiese en strukturele aksies en voedingstowwe.
  • Help met die balansering van bloedsuiker

 

People-with-autoimmune-disorders

  • Beter opname van suurstof in selle wat enorm bydrae veral in kompeternede sport en siektetoestande waar die longe beskadig is.
  • Bogenoemde funksies van fulvic suur kan ook bydrae dat daar korter herstelperiodes is tydens sport, vinniger herstel periodes tydens beserings, kan dus bydrae tot die verminderings van “cravings” en ongesonde eetgewoontes.
  • Die verhoogde suurtofinname van fulvic suur kan ook bydrae dat skadelike virusse en bakterie nie kan oorleef om siektetoestande te veroosaak soos verkoue en griep nie.
  • Behoort n wesenike bydrae te lewer in die voeding van naels, hare, velsorg, veral om velverjonging te bevorder.
  • Spysverteringsakies te bevorder
  • Behoort beter konsentrasie vermoeëns mee te bring, beter brein en ook geheue funksies.
  • Behoort ook die libido te bevorder, beter seksuele funksionering en verhoging van seksuele behoefte.

Fulvic Suur en Eksterme Sport

  1. Fulvic suur is ‘n ideale vervanging van kreatien, wat gewild is onder sportmanne en vroue wat aan ekstreme sportsoorte soos liggaamsbou deelneem, waar spiermassa en die bou en instandhouding daarvan van belang is. Kreatien verhoog uithou vermoeëns.
  2. Fulvic suur is nie kreatien nie. Alhoewel fulvic suur ‘n ideale vervanging van kreatin is, is dit sonder die skadelike effekte van kreatien in oormaat.
  3. Fulvic suur sal ook by uitdagende fisiese aktiwiteite,  die immuunsisteem ondersteun en inflamasie van spierooreising beveg.

Fulvic suur en Gewigsverlies

Fulvic suur is ‘n onbekende, tog ‘n kritiese komponent waar gewigsverlies verlang word. Dit dien as ‘n “chelator” wat in die Mikrobiologie beskou word as “Chemical compound,  that reacts with metal ions, to form a stable water-soluble complex.

” Ione weer is ‘n elektries gelaaide atoom of molekule. Dit word as “gelaai” beskou omdat die getal elektrone nie gelyk is aan die getal protone in die atoom of molekule nie.  Atome kan ‘n positiewe of negatiewe lading benodig, gegewe die getal elektrone in ‘n atoom is of groter of kleiner as die getal protone in die atoom.

Fulvic suur, as ‘n natuurlike chelator, bind dan ander substansies aan sy molekulêre struktuur. Weens sy atoom struktuur, vind ander voedingselemente wat geëet word, bind daaraan en vervoer dan die voedingstowwe na al die selle in mens of dier se liggaam.

Wat dit in effek beteken is dat dit kosbehoeftes of “cravings” inhibeer wat te veel eet en of behoete tot oordadige eet verhoed.

Metabolisme

In eenvoudige beskrywing van “Metabolisme” kan wees die omskakeling van stysels, vette en proteien wat in die spysverteringstelsel verteer is, na energie wat die liggaam kan gebruik.

Enige fisiese aktiwiteit, verhoog die metabolisme. Die tipe metabolisme egter hang af van die tipe aktiwiteit.

Opsommend en Algemeen

Daar is baie verwysings in die Literatuur oor die waarde van fulvic suur. Moeilik vir die persoon om die basiese van Fulvic suur in gewone taal te verstaan.

Opsommend doen Fulvic suur die volgende vir ‘n persoon;

Fulvic suur stel by inname miljoene voordelige mikrobes en ander chemiese en minerale komponente, tesame met ‘n bouquet van vetsure, hormone, vitamiene en spoorelemente en minerale, ketone en ook flavonoiedes vry. Studies bewys ook dat dit help met spysvertering, beter voedingssabsorpsie en verstadig ook die veroudering van selle.

7healthbenefitsoffulvic

Hier is 10 belangrike waardes van Fulvic suur.

  1. Vul Mineraal en Vitamientekorte aan
  • Mineraalopname vanuit die moderne dieët is n groot rede tot kommer en dra waarskynlik tot vele siektetoestande by.
  • Geneties Moduleerde Organismes asook moderne boerderypraktyke met chemiese kunsmis mag bydrae tot laer mineraal en vitamieninhoudelike in groente en vrugte wat te koop aangebied word. Hierdie produkte weens hul groei en versorgingspraktyke mag dus mineraaltekorte hê wat onvoldoende is vir ‘n gesonde diëet.
  • Die toestand mag selfs die mees gesondheidsbewuste persoon se dieët twyfelagtig maak wat glo hy neem genoegsame voedsel in. In die groente en vrugte se groeiprosesse is hul ook aan swaarmetale in skadelike pestisiedes, insektisiedes, onkruidbeheemiddels en kunsmatige kunsmis en ander toksiese stowwe blootgestel.
  • Groente en vrugte lyk wel mooi maar daar is twyfelagtige voedingswaardes in hul opname.
  • Essensieële mineraal en vitamientekorte mag lei tot haarverdunning, naelprobleme en naleverkleuring, gewigstoename, selfs gewigsverlies, lae energievlakke, swak algemene gesondheid, migraines en bloeddruk en bloedsuiker probleme.
  • Gehalte Fulvic suur bevat sowat 70 spoor en mineraalelemente wat noodsaaklik is vir die normale ontwikkeling van die selle van die liggaam. En inname mag dalk die hele spektrum van minerale en spoorelemente aan die gebruiker per dag verskaf.

2. Stimuleer Minerale Absorpsie

  • In plante lok en bind Fulvic suur molekules, asook gelaaide atome en maak hul gereed vir absorpsie by die plant se wortels. Dit help die plant om voedingstowwe na die plant se blare toe te neem vir fotosintese en die byprodukte, minerale en vitamiene terug na die plant se wortels.
  • Fulvic suur doen dieselfde vir die liggaam. Dit verhoog en bevorder die opname van voedingstolwwe vanuit die spysverteringskanaal.
  • Fulvic suur dien ook as ‘n draer van amino-sure, mienrale en vitamine van verteerde voedsel.
  • Om Fulvic suur as ‘n byvoedingsmiddel in te neem, verhoog dus die selle in die liggaam om minerale en vitamienopname te verhoog.
  • Beter opname van minerale en vitamienes behoort beter gesondheid in mens en dier se liggaam te kan fasiliteer, metaboliese funksies, spysverteringgesondheid en nutriente assimilasie.

3. Bevorder Spysvertering

Gastro en en vele ander spysverteringsprobleme, soos, diarree, konstipasie, “bloating” en ander ongesteldhede het twee faktore in gemeen.

  • Ongebalanseerde maagbakterie balanse
  • verkeerde eetgewoontes

Die versameling van skadelike bakterie in die spysverteringstelsel, kan lei tot voedselsensitiwiteit en ook IBS (Irritable Bowl Disease), wat op hul beurt na dodelike gesondheidsprobleme kan lei.

Fulvic suur help/voorkom hierdie toestand met elketroliete, probiotika, vetsure en spoorelemente, wat almal bydrae tot spysverteringgesondheid.

Sommige spysverteringsprobleme lei tot die ” Leaky Gut Syndrome.” Dit is ‘n toestand waar voedselpartikels deur die kolon in die bloedstroom penetreer en op hul beurt inflammasie en auto-immuunreaksies tot gevolg het.

Fulvic suur herstel normaliteit in die spysverteringstelsel, die minerale en vitamien-inhoudelike restoreer ook die funksies van die spysverteringstelsel, verbeter stresvlakke, verhoogde aptytregulering en hormoonbalanse.

Die lewer en sy Belangrikheid

Inleiding:

The lewer is die grootste orgaan in die liggaam. Sy belangrikheid word beklemtoon met die vele metaboliese funksies wat die lewer het. Die lewer is mens en dier se eie persoonlike chemiese verwerkingsaanleg. Dit filter sowat 30% van die liggaam se totale bloedvolume op elke gegewe minuut, waar dit skadelike stowwe opvang en verwerk asook noodsaaklike voedingstowwe vervaardig en versprei in die bloedstroom.

1534361035741

Die lewer is aktief betrokke by ongeveer 500 funksies in die liggaam.

  1. Dit breek voedingstowwe af in ons dieët
    1. Breek dit op in herkenbare vorme
    2. stoor hierdie voedingstowwe
    3. en verskaf dan hierdie voedingstowwe aan selle en organe soos wat dit benodig word.

maxresdefault

  1. Die lewer neem toksiese stowwe (vrye radikale) in die liggaam op
    1. Breek dit af in skadelose afvalstowwe
    2. Skei dit uit na die maag en vir uitskeiding

zDA0M81tQ32lXyTy67EK_liver-bile-detox-pathway-how-a-toxins-are-making-you-gain-fat-toxic-diet-alex-fergus-pcb

  • Die lewer filter ongeveer elke gegewe minuut 1.4 liter bloed, en in totaal sowat 600 liter bloed per dag en skei ureum uit na
  • Die niere, wat sowat 400 liter afskeiding van die lewer in die vorm van ureum filter. Ureum is ‘n afvalstof van die lewer en dit word na die niere uitgeskei, wat dit verwerk en uitskei as uriene.

Kenmerke van die lewer

  • Die menslike lewer weeg ongeveer 1.4 kg. Sit aan die regter bokant van die abdomen en net onder die diafragma. Neem die meeste plek in onder die ribbes.
  • Die lewer is duidelik verdeel in twee eenhede, ‘n groter en ‘n kleiner lob. Die twee lobbe word aanmekaar geheg deur “connective tissue” (sien die funksie van kollageen) wat die lewer anker in die abdomen.
  • Die galblaas stoor gal en word in n klein holte aan die onderkant van die lewer gevind.
  • Die lewer bestaan uit baie klein eenhede wat as “lobules” bekend staan. In hierdie lobules is duisende klein kanaaltjies waardeur die bloed syfer.
  • Bloed word van die spysverteringskanale in die lewer ingepomp deur die hart met die “Portal Vein”. Hierdie toevoer van bloed is ryk aan voedingstowwe in ons dieët. Maar, dit bevat ook die chemiese stowwe van medikasie asook toksiese afvalstowwe wat in die liggaam opgeneem word en of self vervaardig.
  • In die lewer word voedingstowwe opgeneem, afvalstowwe verwerk, gestoor, verander en ontgif “detox” en weer in die bloedstroom vrygestel om gebruik te word, of om deur die liggaam uitgeskei te word.
  • Vitamien K is ‘n belangrike vitamien vir die lewer. Saam produseer hul proteiëne wat belangrik vir bloedverdikking (Wafarin medikasie is bloedverdunningsmedikasie).
  • Die lewer is ook funksioneel in die afbreek van ou bloedselle wat hul lewensiklus voltooi het.

NAFLD

Metabolisme en die Lewer

Die lewer speel ‘n sentrale rol in alle metaboliese prosesse van die liggaam.

Die lewer gebruik vetselle (vet is die liggaam se spens) as voorbeeld, om energie te verwek. ‘n Disfunksionele lewer sal dus nie instaat wees om vet in die liggaam funksioneel af te breek veral by mense wat ‘n paar kilogram sou wou wil verloor nie. ‘n Disfunksionle lewer kan dus ook die oorsaak wees waarom gewig opgetel word.

istockphoto-473850118-1024x1024

Die lewer produseer ook sowat 800-1000 ml gal per dag. ‘n Groen-geel dikkerige vloeistof wat belangrike funksie het in die absorbering van vet, asook die afbreek daarvan. Word in klein kanaaltjies versamel wat in die galblaas eindig en daarna na ‘n gedeelte van die dunderm toe versprei word.

gutjnl-2017-June-66-6-1138-F1.large

Metabolisering van Stysel

Met die metabolisering van stysels stabiliseer die lewer bloedglukose-vlakke in die liggaam. As die suikervlakke styg in die liggaam (soos byvoorbeeld na ‘n maaltyd) sal die lewer suiker in die bloedstroom neem (komende van die “Portal Vein”) en dit stoor in die vorm van glukose.

As die liggaam se bloedsuikervlakke te laag is, sal die lewer glukose afbreek en vrystel as suiker en dit dan vrylaat in die bloedstroom. Die lewer stoor ook minerale soos yster en koper en stel dit in die bloedstroom vry wanneer die liggaam dit benodig.

maxresdefault (1)

Metabolisering van Proteiene

Die lewer speel ook ‘n funksionele rol in die afbreek van proteiene. Breek en verander amino-sure in voedsel sodat dit gebruik kan word vir die vervaardiging van energie vir die liggaam. Of, om voedsel om te skakel in suikers en vette en dit dan te stoor.

Die lewer se afvalstowwe word vrygestel in die vorm van ammoniak, wat ‘n toksiese en sadelike stof is. Die lewer versag die skadelikheid van amoniak, verander dit in ureum voordat dit in die bloedstroom vrygestel word. Ureum (Urea) word dan in die bloedstroom na die niere vervoer wat dit deur die urienwegstelsel as uriene vrystel.

 

Liver-Bruising-Connection

Opsommend.

  1. Die lewer is een van die belangrikste organe in die liggaam en moet as ‘n vriend beskou word wat jou wil voed, en in dieselfde asem wil “detox” of ontgif.
  2. Die is die liggaam se eie voedselverwerkingsaanleg
  3. Dit is die liggaam se spens. Dit stoor nutriënte wanneer nodig en stel energie vry waneer nodig.
  4. Breek ook nie-suikers, soos proteiene of amino-sure af en skakel dit om as as glukose om bloedsuikdervlakke optimaal te hou.
  5. Breek ook vette af soos cholestrol, lipo-proteiene en phospholipiede.
  6. Die lewer is ook die liggaam se spens wat Vit A, Vit B12, Vit D, Vit E asook minerale soos yster en koper.
  7. Filtreer nitrogeengasse, cholestrol en skadelike hormone na die niere en ingewande vir uitskeiding
  8. Vervaardig gal om al die skadelike toksiese stowwe te neutraliseer asook om te help in die geval van afbreek van voedsel by inname.

Gevolge van Disfunksionele Lewer

Wanneer dar lewerskade van soorte by mens en dier ontstaan, wat verskeie oorsake het, kan vele probleme ontstaan. Alle boed beweeg deur die lewer. Die lewer moet alle toksiese stowwe, vette, voedingstowwe, afvalstowwe van soorte filter en filtreer. Afbreek en of stoor en uitskei.

Die lewer moet dooie bloedselle, afval en gebruikte hormone,  medisyne soos penisillien suksesvol afbreek en uitskei na die maag en uitskeidingsorgane soos limfkliere en kolon.

skin-pigment-in-elderly-5-638

Wanneer die lewer nie dit suksesvol doen nie, kan vele siektes ontstaan.

Dan versamel hierdie toksiese afvalstowwe orals in selle in die liggaam. Dit kan lei na sere op die bene of ander dele van die liggaam, kan breinskade en of komas ook veroorsaak.

Fatty-Liver-symptom-cause-risk-factor-treatment-bangkok-hospital-thailand

Die lewer produseer op ‘n kontstante basis proteiene. Wanneer die lewer onsuksesvol lewensnoodsaaklike proteiene vervaardig, (belangrik vir die bestaan van alle lewe in plante en diere) en daarmee saam “blood clotting” of normale bloedverdikking suksesvol verseker, kan bloeding ontstaan in organe of in wonde wat baie moeiik stop.

Dit lei ook tot “bruises” of onverklaarbare bloukolle en oppervlakkige rooikolle en ontsteking.

Fatty-Liver-Cirrhosis

Die Wonder van die Lewer

Die lewer is die enigste orgaan wat homself kan hernu, en kan teruggroei met volle funksie. Vir die rede kan jy ‘n gedeelte van die lewer skenk sonder dat jy as persoon enige skade ly.

detox-pathways-e1411681365440

Gaan sien ‘n mediese praktisyn indien die volgende opgemerk word;

  • Swelling van die bene of enkels
  • Onverklaarbare jeuk
  • Donker uriene
  • Vaalkleurige, of bloederige of teer of swart stoelgang
  • Kroniese moegheid
  • Geelkleurige neerslag in die wit van die oë
  • Braking
  • Maklike kneusings en of bloeding en bloukolle
  • Maagwerkings of diarree, ens

Siektes van die lewer

  • Sirrose van die lewer, ook bekend is as “scarred liver.” Dit is lewer wat nie normaal funksioneer nie.
  • Hepatitis A, B en C.
  • WILSONS’S se siekte
  • Lewerskade weens alkohol misbruik
  • Kanker van die lewer

Behandeling van wonde.

hqdefault

Wonde word behandel deur die ideale omstandighede waarin skadelike bakterie voortplant. Gebruik dus metodes wat bakterie se suurstof afsny,  hul ideale temperatuur te verander, hul waterbehoeftes te ontwrig.

maxresdefault

Leaky gut (LGS)

“Leaky gut syndrome is a condition that affects your digestive system. In leaky gut syndrome, these tight junctions loosen, potentially allowing harmful substances like bacteria, toxins and undigested food particles to enter your bloodstream…”

Leaky Gut: Can This Overlooked Sickness Be Wrecking Your Health?

by Ronald Grisanti D.C., D.A.B.C.O., D.A.C.B.N., M.S.

Leaky Gut Syndrome (LGS) is a major cause of disease and dysfunction in modern society, accounts for at least 50% of chronic complaints, as confirmed by laboratory tests.

Leaky-Gut-Syndrome

In LGS, the epithelium on the villi of the small intestine becomes inflamed and irritated, which allows metabolic and microbial toxins of the small intestines to flood into the blood stream. This event compromises the liver, the lymphatic system, and the immune response including the endocrine system.

Some of the most incurable diseases are caused by this exact mechanism, where the body. Gut Syndrome is often the real basis for chronic fatigue syndrome and pediatric immune deficiencies.

People-with-autoimmune-disorders

Leaky attacks its own tissues.

This is commonly called auto-immune disease.

It is often the primary cause of the following common conditions: asthma, food allergies, chronic sinusitis, eczema, urticaria, migraine, irritable bowel, fungal disorders, fibromyalgia, and inflammatory joint disorders including rheumatoid arthritis are just a few of the diseases that can originate with leaky gut. It also contributes to PMS, uterine fibroid, and breast fibroid.

leaky-gut-image

Leaky Gut Syndrome is reaching epidemic proportions within the population. Historically, the only way bowel toxins entered the blood stream was through trauma, for example by sword or spear.

Leaky-Gut-Diseases

This quickly led to septicemia that might be treatable, or more probably, ended in death. Outside of trauma, the body maintained a wonderfully effective selective barrier in the small intestine, one that allowed nutrients to enter, but kept out metabolic wastes and microbial toxins rampant in the intestines.

What Modern Event Allowed Such A Break-Down?

Primarily it has been antibiotics, secondarily non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs, Motrin, Aleve and Advil) with NSAIDs being the major cause of leaky gut because they so viciously inflame the intestinal lining, causing a widening of the spaces between cells and sometimes hemorrhaging.

Healthy-Gut-vs-Leaky-Gut

Other common causes are chemotherapy, ingested alcohol, inhaled formaldehyde from a new carpet, food allergens, stress emotions, lactase deficiency, gluten/gliaden allergy, abnormal gut flora (bacteria, parasites, yeasts).

The first antibiotic, penicillin, did not enter mainstream health care until 1939. Since the 50’s and 60’s, antibiotic use has been frantically prescribed for every infection and inflammation, particularly pediatric ear infection, bronchitis, and sore throat.

It is sadly ironic that most of these infections are viral in nature, and not only are the antibiotics damaging, but they are ultimately unnecessary. Antibiotics should be considered a hospitalization level medicine, when bacteria have entered the blood, bone, or organ.

Antibiotics Destroy Beneficial Bacteria

Antibiotics create their damage in two ways. The first is by destroying beneficial bacteria. The small intestine and large intestine host over five hundred different kinds of beneficial bacteria. These bacteria perform hundreds of functions required for healthy metabolism and immune response.

Complete-Health-Clinic-Leaky-Gut-Syndrome-4R-Program

Through enzyme secretions, bacteria transform metabolic and microbial wastes before they are discharged by the body. These wastes include cellular debris, hormones, chemical wastes, bile, pus accumulations, viral toxins, bacterial toxins, etc.

75a5837651d72dd8dee26faf329a7576

For example, the body creates bile not only as a lubricant to flush wastes out of the liver, but also, to detoxify many of the poisons accumulating in the liver. Bile however is extremely damaging to large intestine epithelium.

When bile enters the small intestine via the common bile duct, beneficial bacteria break the bile salts down into a less toxic compound, making it non-dangerous by the time it reaches the large intestine.

fig32-72230623-opt03-171

When you take antibiotics you destroy these bacteria and the bile salts freely enter and damage the large intestine. I believe this contributes significantly to the high incidence of colon cancer plaguing today’s society.

Beneficial bacteria also break down hormone secretions that are discharged from the liver to the small intestine. If you lack the bacteria to break down estrogen and the intestinal permeability has been altered, the patient is now reabsorbing estrogens in their original state.

0d5698fd769de983d9fe55e823683c15

The body will deposit these in estrogen sensitive areas such as the breast, uterus, or ovaries, contributing, if not causing, fibroids and tumors. The same scenario is responsible for premenstrual syndrome as well.

Healthy mucosa allows nutrients to pass the barrier while blocking the entry of toxins.

With leaky gut, the barrier is dysfunctional, blocking nutrients at the damaged villi while permitting toxins to enter the blood stream.

Brain-gut-microbe-communication-in-health-and-disease-A-stable-gut-microbiota-is

Antibiotics Promote the Growth of Fungus

The second way antibiotics damage the intestines is by fostering the growth of Candida albicans and other pathogenic fungi and yeast. This event, more than any other, precipitates Leaky Gut Syndrome.

healing-gut-diet-plan-plexus-slim-the-autoimmune-solution-pillar-i-heal-your-gut-amy

In a healthy situation the small intestine epithelium maintains tight cell junctions, which contributes to the physical barrier involved in intestinal absorption. In addition to the physical barrier, there is an important chemical barrier within the mucus that contains immune agents, which neutralize any toxin that comes in contact.

Candida exudes an aldehyde secretion, which causes small intestine epithelial cells to shrink. This allows intestinal toxins to infiltrate through the epithelium and into the blood. The secondary barrier – immune agents in the epithelial mucus – remain the sole agent for neutralization.

Eventually, the immune system becomes exhausted rising to this challenge.

The damage done by Candida is to the intestinal epithelial barrier, allowing the absorption of serious toxic agents and chemicals, which then enter the blood and affect numerous organs, including the brain.

GetNaturopathic-Autoimmune-Diseases-Info

Food Allergies: The Complicating Factor

When the integrity of the intestinal barrier has been compromised, intestinal toxins are not the only pathogens to be absorbed. The barrier, in a healthy state, selectively allows digested nutrients to enter the small intestine when all is ready.

With leaky gut, nutrients can be absorbed before they are fully digested. The body’s immune response, through specific antigen-antibody markers, will tag some of these foods as foreign irritants.

leaky-Gut

Every time that particular food touches the epithelia, an inflammatory immune response is mounted which further damages the epithelial lining. What started as a Candida irritation with shrinking of the cells has now been complicated with active inflammation every time a particular food is eaten.

Food allergies are a common secondary problem to Candida, and if present, will maintain the leaky gut continuously, even if the Candida is eradicated.

37ec1bb9133be5602c566654ac02091d

The most common food allergies are dairy, eggs, gluten grains (wheat, oats, rye), corn, beans (especially soy), and nuts. There are seldom real allergies to meat, rice, millet, vegetables, or fruit, although an allergy to garlic is not uncommon.

We have to distinguish a real allergy – that which causes a histamine inflammatory reaction at the site of the small intestine (SI) epithelia – from sensitivity, which may cause uncomfortable symptoms, but seldom is damaging.

{922D9E98-C25F-425A-AF83-F7DC93188E31}Img100

Sensitivities are usually due to low stomach acid or pancreatic enzyme secretion, that is, poor digestion.

In the healing of the intestinal lining, exposure to a significant allergy can sabotage the treatment. For example, one may be very good at restricting wheat, dairy and eggs, but then compromises the treatment by taking garlic tablets.

The Role of the Liver and Lymphatic System

The metabolic and microbial toxins that enter the bloodstream during leaky gut end up in the liver, which has the job of detoxifying and discharging the poisons. Under normal conditions, the liver is taxed just by processing the daily metabolic wastes created by cell and organ activity.

fig32-72230623-opt03-171

Imagine the further load created by dumping serious intestinal toxins on a regular basis. There is a point when the liver becomes saturated; it cannot further detoxify the poisons, and they are returned to the blood circulation.

The blood has sophisticated mechanisms for preserving chemical homeostasis, and will diffuse as much of the toxic chemicals and physical debris into the interstitial fluids as is possible. From here the lymphatic system will attempt to collect and neutralize the toxins, but unable to send the toxins to the liver, the body essentially becomes toxic.

Microbes grow and develop, hence there can be chronic lymphatic swelling, especially in children. Over a period of time, toxins will be forced into distal connective tissue around muscles and joints, causing fibromyalgia, or into the cells, which can precipitate genetic mutation and ultimately cancer.

Stress to the Immune and Endocrine Systems

The immune system is stressed in three major ways. First is at the site of the intestinal mucosa. As toxins and food antigens brush up against the mucosa, the immune system mobilizes to neutralize the toxins. Normally, much of this work would have been done by beneficial bacteria, which have been destroyed by antibiotics.

For toxins that make it to the mucosa, the body will tag them with a chemical secretory IgA (SIgA), which attracts macrophages and other white blood cells to consume the toxins. It is not long before this immune response is overwhelmed and depleted.

15050829272

This can be measured directly with a stool or saliva test for the intestinal SIgA level.

The second stressor happens in the liver and lymphatic system, which, also overwhelmed, puts demands on the immune system. The third stressor is a consequence: as the immune response diminishes, more microbes (viruses, bacteria, and fungi) multiply, allowing for a chronic state of infection.

The most important organ in the production of immune agents seems to be the adrenal gland, and Leaky Gut Syndrome slowly diminishes adrenal function. In the early and middle stages, there is actually an adrenal excess, as measured by excess cortisol output. Eventually, cortisol levels drop, and one now has exhaustion.

The Role of the Digestive Tract

Candida flourishes when the terrain in the intestines favors it. Just killing Candida is usually not successful, because the chemistry and vitality of the terrain has not been normalized, and Candida returns.

Antibiotics are the original cause of the change on the terrain. By killing acid forming bacteria (Lactobacillus bacteria produce lactic acid, for example), the environment becomes alkaline, which promotes Candida.

Antibiotics and chronic illness reduce stomach acid production, contributing to the alkalinity, and also allowing poor digestive absorption. In fact, many people with LGS are malnourished and will lose excessive weight, no matter how healthy the food is that they eat.

The idea that lactobacillus supplementation is all that is required after antibiotics is somewhat delusional; in fact most of the lactobacillus from supplementation does not survive in the intestine, due to poor terrain. Just to make sure you have a full understanding of the seriousness of Leaky Gut, the following is a summary:

unicity-make-life-better-clearstart30-helps-you-understand-about-detox-cleansing-12-638

  • When the gut is inflamed it does not secrete digestive enzymes to digest foods properly or absorb nutrients and foods properly. The result can indigestion with gas and bloating, called irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
  • When large food particles are absorbed, food allergies and new symptoms are created (e.g., IBS, gallbladder disease, arthritis or fibromyalgia).
  • When the gut is inflamed, carrier proteins are damaged, so malabsorption and nutrient deficiencies occur.These deficiencies slow down the ability of the gut to heal and can cause any number of other symptoms (e.g., magnesium deficiency induced angina or gut spasms, chromium deficiency induced high cholesterol or sugar cravings, zinc deficiency induced prostatitis or lack acid formation)
  • When the detoxification pathways that line the gut are compromised, chemical sensitivity can arise. Furthermore, the leakage of toxins overburderns the liver so that the body is less to handle everyday chemicals in foods, water and air.
  •  Now many foods can cause symptoms that never did before, because the gut’s detoxification (liver) system is unable to cope with the hundreds of chemical additives, dyes, colorings, preservatives and pesticides common in our foods.
  • When the gut lining is inflamed, the protective coating of the gut antibodies can be lost. With loss of the secretory immunoglobulin A (SigA), the body becomes more vulnerable to infections in the intestines from bacteria, viruses, parasites and yeast and they become resistant to treatment.
  • Ironically, the more resistant the bugs become, the more-high powered antibiotics doctor prescribe, resulting in more overgrowth of resistant fungi (Candida). As the unwanted bugs grow, the gut gets more inflamed and leaky initiating a vicious cycle of worsening condition and major cause of so many incurable diseases.
  • When the intestinal lining is inflamed, bacteria and yeast can translocate. In other words, they can pass from the gut cavity into the blood stream and set up infection anywhere else in the body, including the brain. This is often the mysterious and undiagnosed cause of infections in the teeth and gums, bones, prostate, bladder and sinuses.
  • With the formation of antibodies, the food antigens that leak across the gut wall can sometimes resemble the natural antigens on tissues. Protective antibodies will then attack the antigens, as they should and the tissues, causing further damage.

It is the very reason why auto-immune diseases begin. Lupus, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, myocarditis, iritis and thyroiditis are some of the members of this ever-growing category of mysteriously incurable auto-immune diseases.

Free Radicals II

free-radical-test-kit-large

  1. Introduction

Antioxidants in Literature are one of the solutions to get rid of naturally produced free radicals.

images (5)

Well known natural antioxidants can be attained from well-planned diets, that include various fruits and vegetables. Herbal teas like rooibos, green tea, honey bush, spices such cayenne pepper, ginger, turmeric, pepper, cinnamon and others are also known as sources of natural antioxidants.

As explained, there are two main sources of free radicals.

  • External Sources: The industrial environment that pollutes the air that we breath, the water we use, petrochemical fumes, ultraviolet rays from the sun and pesticide sprays and products to name a few.

formation-free-radicals-diagram-concept-260nw-295823912

  • Internal Sources: Breathing, turning oxygen into carbon dioxide, food and minerals into waste, water into urine, drugs into waste, as well as exposure to household cleaning products and pets control.

Conclusion

Man and animal are exposed to 1) external sources of free radicals, as explained in External Free Radicals ­­­­in Bentonite Clay, as well as self-produced free radicals which will be explained now.

Importance

To keep man and animal healthy, as well as restraining the physical body and its organs from early aging, the Immune system needs to defend the body every second from the dangers of free radicals. Not only from the external environment, but also from the body as a living cell itself, producing its own free radicals.

It is the immune systems of man and animal and its functional fitness, its ability as a body defense system that able the body to deal with harmful free radicals.

Take Note

Free radicals will be explained in depth in (3). What we do know will be explained in (2) and the limits and questions of what we don’t know, in (3) as well.

  1. Free Radicals Destroy Living Cells

Media portrays many times pictures of Hollywood stars and how they age over the years. In shock admirers of these movie stars stare in disbelief at the human factor in the aging of these actors, not believing how some of these people are ageing in time.

the01

Scientific studies on rats prove the natural phenomenon of aging. It shows that rats produce a significant number more of free radicals when they naturally age.  These natural age related modifications of their bodies, also match the age-related illnesses associated with ageing rats.

Fact

  • Research on rats in independent studies indicates that free radicals produced in the mitochondria (the little engine of each and every living cell), is also the engine that damages the elements in the cell that keeps it alive, rejuvenated and functional.

images (1)

  • Therefore in skin and health care, the focus should be on the health and abilities of the mitochondria, the little machine that is rejuvenating the body’s DNA, the telomeres, those parts of chromosomes in our bodies that controls aging and have links to various diseases and long life.

This damage causes mutations that produce more free radicals. In effect rushing the process of skin aging and or skin damage as free radicals cause cells to turn against themselves.

young-woman-and-older-woman-with-faces-side-by-side

In effect it means that the cell turns against its own organs in the cell, which are the machines that must rejuvenate and revitalise the cells in skin repairing and skin growth. The reverse effect of skin growth damage cell walls, the little engines in each and every cell that revitalise cell growth, the mitochondria, the glue between cells, collagen, shortening telomeres that are critical to cell growth and cell reconstruction, as well the function of other critical cell structures.

OxidativeStress

If left untreated, or without proper care by guessing being misled with make believe or brand marketing products, the gradual and increasingly build-up of free radicals explains why healthy bodies age in many unwanted ways and rapidly deteriorate at some point in time.

Causes

Although free radicals are produced naturally in the body, lifestyle factors as well as external factors from outside can also accelerate free radical production in skin cells. Especially when harvested by oily or water based substrates applied on the skin to hide acne marks, pores and wrinkle’s.

These free radicals include:

  • exposure to toxic chemicals, such as pesticides and air pollution, petro-chemicals
  • smoking
  • alcohol
  • fried foods
  • drugs
  • sunburn damaging the skin DNA

Above mentioned lifestyle factors have also been linked to diseases such as cancer and cardiovascular diseases.

The term “Oxidative stress” will explain why exposure to these substances can causes many types of diseases.

  1. Antioxidants and free radicals

The Media portray thousands of products selling the solutions to anti-aging and detoxing harmful elements from the human body. Products sells as if they are the only of the answer to the elimination of free radicals as well as the reversing of its harmful effects.

The truth is, it is only a healthy and well cared immune system, supported by the genetic qualities of the individual that brings real solutions to the individual body and skin health. No two persons are the same. True health and skin care can also only progress reactively within the reality of the effects of aging, given that the individual is actively protected his/her health with testable knowledge of what does cause individual aging and illnesses.

Antioxidants

Free-radicals (1)

Antioxidants are molecules in food sources that prevents the oxidation of other molecules in the body that lessen or prevent the effects of free radicals.

How antioxidants function

  • Antioxidants donate an electron to a free radical, thereby reducing its harmful possible reactivity.
  • Antioxidants are unique in the sense that they can donate an electron to a free radical, without becoming a free radical itself.
  • Antioxidants act as scavengers, stealing electrons from free radicals and in the process helps to prevent cell and tissue damage, that could lead to cellular damage and disease.

G4500077

Be not be misled

  • No single antioxidant can combat the effects of every free radical.
  • Free radicals have different effects in different areas of the body.
  • Every antioxidant behaves differently due to its chemical properties.

Antioxidant foods and supplements

Many foods are rich in antioxidants. Berries, citrus fruits, and many other fruits are rich in vitamin C, while carrots are known for their high beta-carotene content. The soy found in soybeans and some meat substitutes are high in phytoestrogens.

antioxidant_sources

The goodness of antioxidants in foods have inspired many health experts to recommend antioxidant-rich diets. Also did the “Antioxidant theory of Aging” led many Health Companies to push sales of antioxidant supplements.

The ill-understanding and the ill-use of antioxidants can also be harmful. Antioxidants are able to into “Pro-oxidants”. This means when antioxidants are used without understanding what it must do, an antioxidant can turn into a pro-oxidant.

It will then search and link to electrons from other molecules, resulting in chemical instabilities that will lead to oxidative stresses of sorts.

Thousands of chemicals can act as antioxidants. Vitamins C, and E, glutathione, beta-carotene, and plant oestrogens called phytoestrogens are well known antioxidants.

Research on antioxidants are mixed.

Studies suggest that antioxidants cannot “cure” the effects of free radicals, especially those antioxidants coming from artificial sources.

What we do know is the following;

  • That we need much more data to understand the real problem of free radicals
  • Antioxidants neutralize free radicals by donating one of their own electrons, ending the electron-“stealing” reaction.
  • Free radicals are an early sign of cells fighting (immune system) a possible disease or aging
  • Free radical formation is inevitable with age.

images (9)

The Role of Vitamins C and E

  • Vitamin E does not turn into a free radical when donating an electron
  • Vitamin E is also the most abundant fat-soluble antioxidant in the body.
  • Vitamin E is known as one of the most efficient chain-breaking antioxidants available.
  • Vitamin E is also known as the primary defender against oxidation
  • Vitamin E is the primary defender against lipid peroxidation (creation of unstable molecules containing more oxygen than is usual).
  • Vitamin E may protect against cardiovascular disease by defending against LDL oxidation and artery-clogging plaque formation.

images

Vitamin C

  • Vitamin C is the most abundant water-soluble antioxidant in the body and acts primarily in cellular fluid.
  • Vitamin C is also known for combating free-radical formation caused by external pollution and cigarette smoke.
  • Also helps return vitamin E to its active form.
  • Many studies have correlated high vitamin C intakes with low rates of cancer, particularly cancers of the mouth, larynx and esophagus.

images (1)

Conclusion

  1. Literature suggest that antioxidants are believed to help protect the body from free-radical damage. But be warned, the solution is not mega-doses of these vitamins as more is not always better and might turn against your body in.
  2. The long-term effect of large doses of these nutrients has not been proven. Other chemicals and substances found in natural sources of antioxidants may also be responsible for the beneficial effects. So for now, the best way to ensure adequate intake of the antioxidant nutrients is through a balanced diet consisting of 5-8 servings of fruits and vegetables per day.

Pierre@ Natural Health Clay masks

Introduction

We are without question living in a highly industrialized environment. Various pollutants of many sources propel free radicals into the air that we breathe. We inhale these toxins into our lungs and many of these free radicals find their way onto our skin. Not only do we inhale these pollutants, toxins and free radicals, we collect various airborne viruses, fungi and bacteria onto our hands and faces just being outside in a industrialised environment.

Not only is the physical environment responsible for creating free radicals harmful and dangerous to man and animal, man and animal are their own natural producers of free radicals.

Whatever the cause or origin of free radicals are in the physical environment we live in, or the free radicals generated by the human or animal body, free radicals are part and parcel of personal health care and all people should be aware off.

6ee42d2dde622e0e62d5552cd04934a8

Free radicals have a profound negative effect on human and animal health. Only sound knowledge of what free radicals are, will enable a person to protect him or herself from the harmful effects of free radicals.

In skin care, dealing with free radicals, it is all about effective preventative care.

Preventative skin care will support the growth factors in the and keep the skin vibrant and alive. It will also enable the little engines in the skin cell that support health and growth, to function optimal. Skin renewal is all about supporting the telomeres in each and every cell. Healthy telomeres will support cell longevity and cell rejuvenation abilities.

External Free Radicals.

There are many external sources of free radicals. It is a subject well published. Here are a few that could be studied in own time with their harmful effects.

  • Industrial manufacturing smoke
  • chemical evaporation of industrial solvents
  • herbicides
  • insecticides
  • petro-chemical gasses
  • nicotine
  • radiation
  • ozone
  • certain drugs
  • heavy metal deposits in dams, rivers and the sea.

Internal Free Radicals

Equally to external free radicals, there are many free radicals generated by man and animal by their mere existence. Such an example is breathing.

Breathing turns oxygen into carbon dioxide or CO², which is also a free radical. One generated internally. This production of free radicals is known as “Oxidation,” and obvious, with its origin in the respiratory chain of anything that breathes.

Breathing provides necessary oxygen to each and every living cell.

unicity-make-life-better-clearstart30-helps-you-understand-about-detox-cleansing-12-638

All living cells which do not receive the required amount of oxygen, will struggle in all aspects of its survival and functionality. Any living cell deprived of oxygen will starve as well as not being able to keep the skin healthy, promotes cell growth and or be functional in cell replacement or rejuvenation.

A second source of free radical production is the waste generated from using minerals, vitamins, amino acids and sugars. A healthy cell needs shed one-use waste effectively back into the bloodstream, back to the liver to deal with the self-generated waste or free radicals.

Conclusion

Free radicals are part and part of the system. Cells are in constant need of food and oxygen. All living organisms have a disposal system or an “exhausts” of sorts. Waste needs to be filtered into the blood stream, to be dealt with by the kidneys, lungs, liver, lymphatic system etc.,

Cells

  • The human body is composed of many different types of cells.
  • These cells are invented with various different types of molecules.
  • Molecules consist of one or more atoms
  • Of one or more elements
  • These elements are joined by chemical bonds or reactions.

Fig.1

water molekule

A chemical bond is the attraction between atoms that enables the formation of chemical compounds such as water.

  • Atoms, as Fig 2 will indicate, consist of a nucleus, neutrons, protons and electrons.
  • An atom is known as the basic unit of a chemical element.
  • Every solid, every liquid, gas and or plasma is composed of neutral or ionised atoms.
  • Every atom is composed of a nucleus and one or more electrons bound to the nucleus.
  • The nucleus is made of one or more protons and typically, a similar number of neutrons.
  • Protons and neutrons are called nucleons. More than 99.94% of an atom’s mass is in the nucleus.
  • The protons have a positive electrical charge, the electrons have a negative electric charge, and the neutrons have no electric charge.

The number of protons in the atom nucleus, (also known as positively charged particles) determines the number of electrons (negatively charged particles) surrounding the atom.

  • Electrons are involved in chemical reactions.
  • It is the substance that bonds atoms together to form molecules.

atome en molekules

Fig 2

  • The bond may result from the electrostatic force of attraction between oppositely charged ions, as in ionic bonds, or through the sharing of electrons as in covalent bonds.
  • Opposite charges attract via a simple electromagnetic force.
  • The negatively charged electrons orbit the nucleus
  • The positively charged protons in the nucleus, attract the negatively charged electrons that orbits the nucleus.

How Free Radicals Are Formed

  • Electron, or the bond between molecules, seldom split in a way that leaves a molecule with an unpaired electron.
  • It is only when a weak bond split, where free radicals are formed.
  • Free radicals are unstable molecules, formed from weak bonds
  • It is a molecule in search of completeness, therefore reacts rapidly with other compounds.
  • It is the nature of free radicals to capture the wanted electron to gain stability.
  • Free radicals attack the nearest stable molecule, “stealing” its electron.
  • When the “attacked” molecule loses its electron, it becomes a free radical itself
  • This cause a chain reaction between molecules of stealing available electrons.
  • Once this process of stealing electrons from other molecule starts, it most often ends in the death of a cell.
  • In skin care, the rapid aging of a living cell.
  • Many free radicals are generated by the body itself, because we breathe and we eat.
  • The immune system itself purposefully create free radicals to neutralize viruses and bacteria.

Conclusion

There are three sources of free radical production;

  • The living body of man and animal will generate free radicals by mere existence.
  • Nature herself provide a number free radicals in bacteria, viruses and fungi
  • The industrialized world produces a number of harmful free radicals traced in soil or food production, in our rivers, the air that we breathe, the food sources we have in the sea.

Living Organisms and Free Radicals

When all is equal, the human body and the immune system should be able to successfully manage and dispose the free radicals.  But, to eliminate these free radicals successfully, the body needs antioxidants to eliminate these harmful molecules.

Of particular importance to note that free radical damage accumulates with age.

26234947_1771623666222902_15770770_n

Free radicals will accumulate in many places of the body. If the accumulation thereof is not dealt with appropriately, those free radicals will cause illness or damage to cell structures, cell proteins, DNA, and cell membranes by stealing their electrons through “Oxidation

Free Radicals are therefore associated with;

  • Cellular and organ damage
  • Early ageing
  • Decreased immune system
  • Collagen weakening or connective tissue weakening and wrinkle forming
  • Artery wall degeneration
  • Cholesterol plague build up
  • Reduction of blood flow to all cells, brain and other organs
  • Blood clots
  • Stress on the hearts functionality because of damage cells
  • Various chronic diseases
  • Cancer
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Arthritis
  • Lupus
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Impaired vision and cataracts
  • Inflammatory diseases and joint pains
  • Grey hair
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Cardiovascular diseases
  • Diabetes

Note: it is in health and skin care important to note that the body is under constant attack from various “Oxidative stress”.

edc532aa01edf62e5d803053498aab06

To Recap

  • “Oxidative stress is something that happens naturally inside our cells as these cells use oxygen turning into carbon dioxide, food and mineral sources turning into waste.”
  • The human body is made up of trillions of cells.
  • Inside each and every cell (except red blood cells) is a tiny “engine” called a mitochondrion.
  • The mitochondria create the energy your bodies use to function, to be awake, to sleep, to digest, to think, to breathe.
  • All body functions are dependent on the health of the mitochondrion
  • In all health care, every little cell that has a function towards health.
  • Mitochondria produce oxidative stress.
  • Living cell needs to get rid of used food waste, toxins generated, carbon dioxide as well as harvested bacteria, viruses and fungi
  • Many organs in the body plays a vital role in getting rid of these oxidative waste products in their normal functioning.
  • Study the functions of the lungs, the liver, kidneys, lymph and the digestive system, etc.,

See these by-products as in a motor vehicle “engine” analogy. It running engine needs to get rid of its “oxidative stresses” and by-products. All engines need an exhaust to do so and so does living cells to.

Oxidative stress is associated with the damage of proteins, lipids and nucleic acids.  Free radicals are known to damage the cell’s DNA instructional code, causing new cells provided by the immune system to grow erroneously whilst leading to the early aging of the skin

If the body, with its immune system do not have enough “anti-oxidants” to assist functional cells with their natural detoxing processes, the accumulation of free radicals will ensure that the cell’s exhaust will block. Blockage will lead to a dysfunctional mitochondrion, a decrease in cell energy production, the starvation of cells, etc.

Various studies have connected oxidative stress by free radicals also to:

  • central nervous system diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and other dementia’s
  • cardiovascular disease due to clogged arteries
  • autoimmune and inflammatory disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis and cancer
  • cataracts and age-related vision decline
  • age-related changes in appearance, such as loss of skin elasticity, wrinkles, greying hair, hair loss, and changes in hair texture
  • diabetes
  • genetic degenerative diseases, such as Huntington’s disease or Parkinson’s
  • many skin problems as in sores, wounds, acne, in wrinkles, in skin thinning and or thickening, can be associated with skin cells in a dysfunctional state.

Preventative skin care is therefore critical matter of knowledge.

It makes sense to focus on the mitochondria or little engine of facial skin cell in facial skin care. The mitochondria are tiny organelles in cells that process the nutrients to power the cell.

To assist the mitochondria and the telomeres into maximal functioning, the harvesting excessive free radicals naturally (remember they have a positive electrical charge) through electromagnetic means, whilst these free radicals are in search for another electron, makes perfectly sense.

Free radicals, as said, are positively charged. The Pierre@ Natural health bentonite blend of clay are negatively charged. This blend of negatively charged clay will act as a highly charged magnet, absorbing the positively charged free radicals naturally into the clay blend.  It will naturally “detox” the affected area where free radicals did accumulate, place needed natural sodium and calcium back into the cells that the cell engine or mitochondria need.

The question should be asked why this method?

Let us have a look at the function of Antioxidants and their natural reaction to known free radicals

  • Antioxidants, as in the Pierre@ Natural Health blend of clay, are blend to keep accumulated free radicals on the skin in check.
  • Antioxidants are molecules in the clay prevent free radicals accumulated on the skin from taking electrons and causing further skin damage and destruction.
  • Antioxidants in the cream are a blend of vitamins and related molecules that prevent free radicals from taking electrons from skin cells disturbing cell functioning and causing damage.
  • Antioxidants are able to give an electron to a free radical, without becoming destabilized themselves, thus stopping a free radical chain reaction as explained.
  • Antioxidants are natural substances who are used and contracted to clean up and harvest free radicals.
  • Fibre in the intestines are used to clean up waste products in the intestines. Antioxidants in the same token are used to clean up free radical in the cells.
  • Free radical chain reaction can lead to broken cell membranes which means it can alter what enters and what exits the cells
  • Free radicals are able to change the structure of a lipid, making it more likely to become trapped in an artery.
  • Damaged molecules may mutate and grow tumours
  • The cascading damage of free radicals are also able to change the DNA code of a cell.

Skin cell care

Feed the cells with the Pierre@ Natural Colostrum Balm. Colostrum is Nature’s own food, well known and proven to regrow and revitalise skin cells. Also known that it will stimulate and enhance natural cell growth. Colostrum will feed and stimulate the telomeres in the cells, repair the DNA to rejuvenate the skin and natural cell functions.

Internal Free Radical Care

We are what we eat. We need to assist our skin, the biggest organ of the body, with what we eat. We also need to get rid of the free radicals our bodies produce naturally. External skin care is not merely enough.
