Posted on 2011/05/30. Filed under: FEBICO Nutraceuticals |

Are people nowadays taking care of their eyes? Computers during work, mobile phones during traveling, and television at home are all factors of damage to the eyes. In addition to these, there are also risks of electrical radiation, ultra-violet rays from the sun, old age which could cause overuse of the eyes resulting in the speeding up of old age with the eyes and more chances of damage.

Behind the retinas of the eyes is an area known as the macula, the function of this are is to provide color and details to vision. The macula itself is in a yellowish color because it contains large amounts of lutein. In developed countries, the most common vision problems comes from macular degeneration due to old age, myopic retinopathy, senile cataract, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, etc.; in which, macular degeneration and cataracts, following high-tech development and larger usage of mobile phones, are creating a gradual decline in the age groups, and worsening day by day.

 According to statistics of America, on average, one person becomes blind in every 11 minutes. Every year, blindness created from macular degeneration has reached 300,000 people, and has affected the vision of 13,000,000 people. In Taiwan, 60 percent of the age group above 50 years old has contracted cataract, 80 percent in the age group above 60 years old, and 90% of the people aged 70 and above are faced with cataract. It is estimated that an increase of 110,000 new cases will be reported every year. Approximately 100,000 cases have accepted to undergo cataract operations. If people do not take care of their eyes at early stages, it won’t be long until cataract operations are needed.

FEBICO Bright Eyes Softgel, uses lutein extracted from Germany certified organic chlorella, at the same time they combined zeaxanthin, chlorophyll, FEBICO’s self cultivated red algae extract-phycoerythrin, and added β-Carotene and phycocyanin. These ingredients act as sunglasses, protecting the eyes and filtering the ultra-violet rays from the sun, blue ray, and radiation. Lastly some fish oil, which contains DHA to avoid dryness of the eyes. Lutein and zeaxanthin are both a type of β-Carotene, and are considered very important ingredients for the retina and lens. However, the human body is unable to produce these ingredients and therefore absorbed from other sources. Phycoerythrin has excellent antioxidant abilities, 550 times that of vitamin E, and is also known as super vitamin E. It is capable of cleaning free radicals and reduce eye damage. β-carotene is able to help the formation of rhodopsin, so that the eyes can adapt to light changes, maintaining vision in the dark.

13 Reasons Why You Must Take Supplements

Posted on 2011/05/27. Filed under: Health issue |

  1. Most people today are born with nutritionally deficiency because the parents are nutritionally deficient too. Our body are depleted and toxic. To correct this inherited nutritional deficiencies and to detoxify the body, we require extra nutrients.
  2. Today’s soil is depleted. Soils are low in zinc, manganese, chromium, molybdenum, calcium magnesium and selenium. This means that we may not obtain all the nutrients we need from foods.
  3. Modern fertilizers do not supply enough trace elements. One hundred years ago, manures were used extensively for fertilizer. Today, superphosphate fertilizers have largely replaced manures. These contain mainly nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus and are deficient in the trace elements contained in manures. Superphosphates often act more as growth stimulants. This has contributed greatly to depletion of the soil and crop minerals. This includes organically grown food in certain areas, although it is much better.
  4. Pesticides and herbicides kill soil microorganisms and affect the nutrition of the plant. Soil microorganisms are needed to make minerals and other nutrients available to plants. The result is lower nutrient content. Also, our bodies require extra nutrients to process pesticide residues that remain inside the foods.
  5. Many pesticides are deadly chemicals that severely tax the human system. Some contain lead, arsenic and other toxic metals that slowly accumulate in the body unless and until one follows a health program designed to remove them.
  6. Long-distance transportation of many foods diminishes their nutrition. Most vegetables and fruits of Singapore are imported. Many foods are grown thousands of miles away They may spend days on trucks or ships to reach us, and then store in warehouse / coldroom for months.
  7. Fruits and vegetables are harvested before they’re fully ripened, this affects their nutritional value.
  8. Processed Foods. Food processing often drastically reduces nutrient content. Refining of wheat to make white flour removes 80% of its magnesium, 70-80% of its zinc, 87% of its chromium, 88% of its manganese and 50% of its cobalt. Refining sugar cane to make white sugar removes 99% of its magnesium and 93% of its chromium. Polishing rice removes 75% of its zinc and chromium.
  9. Food additives often deplete nutrients. Thousands of artificial flavors, colors, dough conditioners, stabilizers and preservatives are added to our foods. While some are harmless and may increase the value of food, many are toxic and can deplete the body of nutrients.
  10. As a result of eating refined, low-quality food loaded with additives, most people’s digestion is impaired.This further impairs nutrient absorption and increases nutritional needs. This is why I recommend a digestive aid for everyone who is suffering from any health condition.
  11. Pollution and Stress deplete many nutrients including calcium, magnesium and zinc. Stress also causes excessive sympathetic nervous system activity, which reduces digestive ability. This is another important reason why supplementation in high doses is sometimes needed.
  12. Everyone’s Biochemical Composition Is Different. Each person’s oxidation rate, stage of stress, trace element levels, toxic metal levels, digestive adequacy, state of the immune system and other factors are different, therefore, it’s difficult to replenish nutrients only through food. Moreover, one’s nutritional requirements are affected by age, sex, weight and health conditions including pregnancy and acute or chronic illnesses. In order to prevent illnesses or rebuilding after sickness, we need to provide the body with the amount of nutrients needed. This is so called Orthomolecular Nutrition coined by Nobel Laureate, the late Dr. Linus Pauling. And, this might not be able to accomplish just by diet.
  13. We use foods and nutrients not just to correct symptoms, but to balance body chemistry. For example, we need to take into consideration of the person’s physical and mental conditions, post- or pre-operation requirements and other factors. And, therapeutic dosages of nutrients and foods are not the same as standard food menu or set lunch. We have to attend to the individual needs differently.

*When the health is rebuilt, the extra amount of nutrients and supplements is no longer needed, but it will take a number of years to achieve this. A fundamental change of diet and lifestyle is also needed to accomplish this and to be out of the vicious cycle.

Loosely defined, a superfood is a nutrient dense foods with various health promoting properties. Some are packed with nutrition, other superfoods have special properties that make them highly beneficial for certain purposes. Basically, a superfood can provide you with more benefit than regular food.

-Goji berries are a superfood that support the immune system and are nutrient dense.
These are just a few of the many types of superfoods available. A superfood may also have high levels of phytonutrients or antioxidants. Hytonutrients are the reason that fruits and vegetables have their vibrant and beautiful colors. A superfood often contains high levels of phytonutrients. These nutrients generally also have strong health promoting benefits. A superfood does not have to be a strange and foreign food. Blueberries are commonly considered a superfood since they have high levels of antioxidants, fiber and vitamin C. Spinach is another common superfood that is filled with vital green nutrients, as well as iron and vitamin K.
The term superfood has become increasingly common over the last several years. This may be due to the fact that we are learning more about foods and how to use them. Recent scientific advances have allowed researchers to find foods that possess extra nutritional value and to classify these as a superfood.
Most types of superfood are easy to eat and enjoy. Often superfoods are a type of raw food. Fruits like goji berry, mulberry and pineapple are commonly enjoyed fresh, frozen or dried. Other types of superfood like spirulina and maca are more commonly found in a powdered or tablet form. Powered forms of a superfood can be sprinkled onto prepared food, mixed into foods before baking, added to smoothies or juices or simply taken as they are. Regularly taking a superfood, or several, can be a great way to ensure that you receive the nutrition that you need each day. A superfood is a concentrated type of nutrition which means that you can get a variety of nutrients without having to eat a lot of the superfood. The many types of superfood available make it easier to get a complete diet without having to take supplements. Another benefit of the superfood is the health and healing benefits that may be associated.
Some superfood have medicinal properties as well. For example, guarana is a superfood that contains high levels of caffeine for natural energy. Goji berries have been shown to help heal the eyes, while Chia seed may lower cholesterol.

Radiation still a problem ?? Don’t be fooled by reassurances

Posted on 2011/05/11. Filed under: Health issue |


The New York Times and other mass media publications have been publishing articles that downplay the dangers of radioactive fallout from nuclear disasters like the Fukushima and Chernobyl disasters. And the Environmental Protection Agency has now stopped testing air, water, and milk samples for radiation despite the continuing release of radioactive materials into the environment from Japan.

The Fukushima disaster has resulted in a nuclear meltdown that has no end in sight. That reactor is still spewing fallout into the ocean and the atmosphere. It may never be brought under control. Chernobyl is still leaking dangerous radioactive materials. Nuclear reactors are fundamentally unsafe. Every one of them is subject to a meltdown situation in multiple unforeseen and even predictable scenarios. Chernobyl resulted in at least one million deaths. How many will Fukushima claim?

And the New York Times pundits have the audacity to remind us that the atomic bomb tests of the 1950s resulted in more persistent radioactive fallout than these nuclear reactor disasters. And what about those decaying barrels of nuclear waste material dumped in the ocean, they ask. And the junked and sunk nuclear submarines in the deep abysses of our oceans. But the New York Times and other media fodder have an agenda – to promote the deadly nuclear energy program.

Everyone is being exposed to radioactive fallout, which is much more dangerous to you than natural sources of radiation. Don’t be fooled by fancy graphs of the relative exposure from rocks and x-rays and reassurances about your exposure during airplane travel. Man made nuclear reactor disasters result in radioactive particles that animals ingest. These particles emit radiation. They lodge in body tissues of cows. They are passed through their milk. They enter our bodies through water and milk and rain. They persist in our bodies near vital organs and continue to emit radiation that damages cells and increases cancer risk.

Please be aware that seaweed, kelp, spirulina, chlorella, and other sea vegetable sources that chelate and detoxify radiation exposure may now be radioactive if they are produced in Japan. Some kelp sources have shown elevated levels of radioactivity. Fish and seaweed may be dangerous. Research your sources of these products. Call the manufacturer and ask about their monitoring for radioactivity. Then determine if you are satisfied with their assurances.

10 reasons to go for organic food

Posted on 2011/05/05. Filed under: Health issue |

1. Organic production reduces health risks

Many EPA-approved pesticides were registered long before extensive research linked these chemicals to cancer and other diseases. Organic agriculture is one way to prevent any more of these chemicals from getting into the air, earth and water that sustain us.

2. Organic farms respect our water resources

The elimination of polluting chemicals and nitrogen leaching, done in combination with soil building, protects and conserves water resources.

3. Safeguard the Integrity of Food

Certified organic provides a guarantee that product has been grown, handled, packaged and distributed avoiding risk of contamination of the product to the point of sale. Full traceability is maintained along the chain.

4. Organic food tastes great

It’s common sense well-balanced soils produce strong, healthy plants that become nourishing food for people and animals. Organic produce also has up to 30% more antioxidants than conventionally grown produce.

5. Organic products meet stringent standards

Organic certification is the public’s assurance that products have been grown and handled according to strict procedures without persistent toxic chemical inputs.

6. Organic farmers build healthy soil

Soil is the foundation of the food chain. The primary focus of organic farming is to use practices that build healthy soils. Organic farming methods improve the condition of the soil including the presence of important nutrients a

7. Organic farming helps keep rural communities healthy

USDA reported that in 1997, half of U.S. farm production came from only 2% of farms. Organic agriculture can be a lifeline for small farms because it offers an alternative market where sellers can command fair prices for crops.

8. Organic abundance Foods and non-foods alike

Now every food category has an organic alternative. And non-food agricultural products are being grown organically � even cotton, which most experts felt could not be grown this way.

9.Avoid GMOs

Avoid GMOs. Independent testing of the long-term health effects of GMO foods on humans has not been carried out. Certified organic foods are a great way to avoid GMOs.

10.Organic producers strive to preserve diversity

The loss of a large variety of species (biodiversity) is one of the most pressing environmental concerns. The good news is that many organic farmers and gardeners have been collecting and preserving seeds, and growing unusual varieties for decades.
