Astaxanthin naturally prevents sunburn

Posted on 2011/11/22. Filed under: FEBICO Nutraceuticals |

Overexposure to sunlight can have devastating effects on human skin. From minor sunburns to melanoma skin cancer, spending too much time in the sun can result in everything from discomfort to fatal disease. For this reason, preventing overexposure to sunlight has been at the forefront of peoples’ minds for years. Though staying out of the sun entirely is not an option for most individuals, utilizing sunscreen can drastically reduce the effects of direct sunlight. Astaxanthin, an antioxidant, has been indicated as a naturally occurring skin protector that can minimize the damage caused by the sun’s rays.

Astaxanthin is a member of the carotenoid family, which is a group of plant chemicals that are used by many species of flora to ward off damaging effects of the sun. A natural sunscreen, astaxanthin has been protecting plants for thousands of years. Astaxanthin is also present in the many animals that eat plants, especially algae. These animals include mostly seafood, such as salmon, shrimp, crab, and lobster, but also include flamingos.

Unfortunately for humans, simply consuming foods rich in astaxanthin is not enough to prevent sunburn; however, taking the antioxidant as a dietary supplement in pill form may be beneficial. As a powerful substance that can infiltrate every part of the body (cells, brain, nervous system, eyes, organs, and skin), astaxanthin can cross the blood-brain barrier, infiltrate the blood stream, and provide benefits to every cell in the human body.

But how does this antioxidant prevent sunburn, specifically? The sun’s rays damage the skin through free radicals, which are also responsible for causing premature signs of aging and some cancers. Counteracting the activities of free radicals with antioxidants is important in preventing damage, such as sunburn, and astaxanthin is one of the most powerful antioxidants in the body.

Building up enough astaxanthin to effectively prevent sun damage may take several weeks, prompting many people to rely upon over-the-counter sunscreens; however, the over-the-counter brands contain a great deal of harmful chemicals and also cause free radical damage, among other things. This is one of the many cases where products that are meant to protect the body cause just as much harm, if not more, than the damage they are meant to avoid.

Astaxanthin is a proven natural preventative of sunburn, but it is not yet evident how much of the antioxidant needs to be present in the body to provide reliable protection. Additionally, there is no way to be sure of the levels that your body contains. Taking a natural astaxanthin supplement will certainly improve the body’s ability to prevent sunburn, but if you decide to utilize this method of sun protection, be sure that you pay attention to the supplements you take and the amount of time you stay in the sun to gauge how long you will remain safe from sunburn.

For anyone that is looking for natural protection against sunburns, astaxanthin is a great alternative to the chemical-laden products that are sold in many stores. The benefits of this supplement are clear; however, if you do implement it into your dietary routine, be sure to pay close attention to your sun exposure to develop an understanding of how long your antioxidant levels can keep you safe.

Japanese secret to longevity-4 in 1 Formula using vegetarian capsule

Posted on 2011/10/05. Filed under: FEBICO Nutraceuticals |

It is slowly reaching the season of autumn, where temperature difference between night and day is clearly noticeable. This may cause vasoconstriction which may lead to cardiovascular diseases. According to a British research, cardiovascular diseases have a 25% higher percentage of occurring in autumn than in any other seasons. Low temperature may cause instability in the blood vessels, high blood pressure, poor blood circulation and other physiological changes. Coupled with over-eating and lack of exercising lifestyles during cold weathers. In addition, people who suffer from high blood pressure, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, smoking, obesity, and lack of exercise may have a higher risk to cardiovascular diseases.

For cardiovascular health care, health care experts recommend supplements such as nattokinase, red yeast rice, coenzyme Q10 and astaxanthin, these have been reported to be very beneficial for cardiovascular care. Therefore, FEBICO developed a formulated supplement using red yeast rice and natto, specifically aimed at providing cardiovascular care. The formula consists of the 4 above-mentioned ingredients from healthcare professionals, with each capsule containing a high and pure concentrate of 20000 F.U Nattokinase.

Core Ingredients

Nattokinase  –The Japanese have been using Natto for thousands of years, and has become a widely used ingredient or food to prevent cardiovascular diseases. The longevity health secret comes from the sticky material on the surface of the natto, which contains a physiologically active substance-Nattokinase. Nattokinase is very effective in dissolving fibrinogen, helps improve the body’s natural clotting against thrombosis, and the ability to dissolve blood clots. Consequently, it is often used in the prevention of cerebral infarction, strokes, and myocardial infarction. It frequently supplements, regulates physiological functions, enabling smooth circulation and maintaining good health.

 Red Yeast Rice-Ancestors of modern China discovered thousands of years ago the special characteristic of the red yeast rice. It has a bright color, a pleasant aroma, the ability to adjust physiological characteristics, and has been regarded as an excellent supplement since ancient times. Red Yeast rice produces many precious active ingredients during fermentation, such as: Monacolin L, GABA, and anti-oxidant substances. Studies show that Monacolin K is a cholesterol inhibitor, and can inhibit the synthesis of cholesterol, at the same time it can lower low-density lipoprotein (LDL), and increase high-density lipoprotein (HDL), therefore has lipid-lowering effect.

Astaxanthin-Astaxanthin is an ingredient extracted from red algae. It is a type of carotenoid, and a natural antioxidant. Its antioxidant ability is equal to 550 times of Vitamin E; therefore Astaxanthin is also called “Super Vitamin E”. It has the ability to protect vascular endothelial cells, avoid damage from free radicals, and prevent arteriosclerosis and other cardiovascular diseases from occurring.

Coenzyme Q10-Coenzyme Q10 is one of the important factors of maintaining vitality and youth. The main function of this substance is its participation in the production of energy; it can also inhibit the production of free radicals, reducing free radical damage. The body’s organs all contain Q10, especially in organs that use a lot of energy, such as the heart, kidney, and liver. As the body gets older, the amount of Coenzyme Q10 gradually reduces, breathing may also cause consumption of Q10, especially after the age of 40, the Q10 amount in the heart is reduced to about 30%. Therefore, the body needs sufficient supplements of Q10 to help resist free radicals so that the heart can regain its lively function.

11 Ways to Pick Out Healthy Food-Part II

Posted on 2011/09/30. Filed under: FEBICO Nutraceuticals |

6.Soup

Stay below 20% of your RDA of sodium (about 460 mg for a daily allowance of 2,300 mg, or 300 mg for 1,500 mg). Several companies make low-sodium soups that fall within this range.

Calories should be limited to 200 per serving unless the soup constitutes your entire meal, in which case you can reach 400 calories.

And check the serving size. A can typically contains two servings, and eating the entire thing could put you over your sodium limit.

Protein is a plus, and a soup can make a good snack or partial meal if it has between 5 and 10 grams of protein. If it’s your entire meal, it should have at least 10 grams.

7.Rice and pasta

Choose rice and pasta that are high in fiber, and preferably pasta that is 100% whole grain. Brown rice doesn’t have as much fiber, but it has more than white rice.
Ideally, you want 7 grams of fiber per serving (and 25 to 35 grams daily), but before you dig into a bowl of rigatoni, check the serving size. Pasta expands as you cook it, so an ounce of uncooked pasta has more fiber—and more calories —than an ounce of cooked pasta. If the label doesn’t specify, assume the serving size is for cooked pasta.
And with flavored/packaged rice, check for added salt. There’s likely to be a lot—up to 1,000 mg in certain brands.

8.Salad dressing

Almost all salad-dressing serving sizes are two tablespoons, making them easy to compare. Stick to 50 calories or less per serving, and the less sugar the better.
“Basically any sugar in salad dressings is added sugar,”. Choose salad dressings that are made of olive oil, like vinaigrettes, rather than mayonnaise, like ranch or Thousand Island.
And again pay attention to sodium. The more processed foods you eat, the more salt you get.

9.Yogurt

Yogurt can be a low-cal way to get protein and calcium, but choose the wrong kind, and you could eat a container with nutritional content similar to that of ice cream.
Pick low-fat varieties, with at least 6 grams of protein. Greek yogurts have more protein per serving than plain yogurt, but full-fat Greek yogurts can contain up to 18 grams of saturated fat.
Also check for sugar. “Oftentimes sugar is off the charts in yogurt,”. Aim for less than 20 grams of sugar per serving. Choose a version that has lower sugar, between 6 and 12 grams, like plain yogurt, then add your own sweet fruits.
The good news is yogurt is low in sodium

10.Sports drinks

Unless you’re involved in an endurance activity for over an hour, you don’t need a sports drink. Be aware that if you do reach for a sports drink, you can end up consuming more than 60 calories per serving.
If you are sweating heavily and need replenishment, have one that has below 60 calories per serving and make sure you know what the serving size is (bottles often contain two servings).
“A lot of them are just sugared water, and you’re getting extra calories, which you don’t need,” Gans explains. Though sports drinks are great while exercising, choose water if you’re simply thirsty on a hot day.

11.Salty snacks

Salty flavor is a favorite among snackers, but you should make sure you don’t get more than 15% of your daily sodium from snacking.
To indulge wisely, first check the serving size. Find out how many pretzels or chips constitute one serving. Take only that amount from the economy-size bag and don’t go back for seconds.
Search for the least amount of salt and fat per serving (pretzels tend to have less fat than chips). Baked versions are better than fried ones, as they contain less fat. But be careful. These snacks often pour on more salt to compensate for flavor.

Take care your liver !!!

Posted on 2011/06/17. Filed under: FEBICO Nutraceuticals |

The liver is also known as a silent organ, because the majority of infections are asymptomatic until the hepatitis outbreak. Global Overview: 80% of primary liver cancer is caused by chronic hepatitis B. Each year, about 1.2 million people die from hepatitis B-related chronic liver diseases.

Asia: This region carries the highest incidence of Hepatitis B, carriers of Hepatitis B accounts to about 10 percent of the total population, or more than 100 million people. In South East Asia, each year about 25 million deaths are caused from liver diseases, and there are many more patients who suffer from long-term liver infection and diseases.

China: The country has the highest ranking with people infected with HBV, about 120 million people (about 1 out of 12 people is infected), and around 30 million people suffer from chronic type Hepatitis B. 

Taiwan: Liver cancer is ranked number 2 in the top 10 cancer caused deaths. Every year, 7 to 8 thousand people die due to lung cancer, and Hepatitis B carriers is calculated at 3 million people (average of 1 out of every 7 people is a carrier).

Significant difference of micronutrients found in Hepatitis B carriers and healthy people

Clinical studies show that the micronutrients status changes in carriers or patients of viral hepatitis, such as the rise in oxidative stress, the rise in percentage of heavy metals and microelements. These symptoms reduce the body’s immune, anti-oxidize and anti-virus abilities, which therefore, affect the cure rate.

Related studies show that, carotenoids, folate, vitamin B2, vitamin B12, vitamin C, iron, zinc, copper, selenium and other micronutrients have immune ability, and also affect the patient’s susceptibility for infectious diseases and cure rate.

Therefore, Hepatitis B patients can take supplement externally to replenish the micronutrients status, which may decrease side affects of Hepatitis B therapy, also improving the cure rate.

FEBICO Bpogen Capsules

Bpogen is the latest product developed from bio-technically developed spirulina. It not only contains high purity of phycocyanin (CPC), zinc, selenium, chromium, it is also capable of replenishing carotenoids, folate, and other micronutrients. It can effectively regulate the immune function, enhance anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-virus abilities, thus reducing side effects of Hepatitis B drug treatment and enhancing the cure rate of Hepatitis B treatment.

Bpogen has proven from experiments that, the special anti-oxidant ingredient known as phycocyanin is capable of reducing carbon tetrachloride (CCI4) and other chemical reagents ability to bio-transform, and prevent damage to the internals from the toxic elements created during its process, it can also effectively reduce GOT and GPT. In addition, Bpogen also focused research and clinical studies on chronic Hepatitis B patients. During the process of medical treatment for chronic Hepatitis B patients, Bpogen was applied, and the study shows that the anti-oxidant enzymes (Zn/CU-SOD, Se-dependent GPx, GR) found in patients have improved significantly, suggesting that viral clearance and live function improvement are significant. Bpogen can further help reduce liver total lipids and triglycerides, and increase good cholesterol (high density cholesterol, LDL) levels, reduce liver and cardiovascular burden. Therefore, an adequate usage of FEBICO Bpogen capsules, is the solution to building up strength, reducing fatigue, and good circulation.
