Together, let’s put an end to deteriorating health

Hot Dogs, Burgers, Steaks, and... Phyto Power to the Rescue

The 4th of July is centered upon a great barbecue, meat intensive foods, and to make it even more tasty, we add potato salad with a generous amount of mayonnaise (who does not like mayo?), ice cream, pies, and you get the picture - meat, fat, and more fat, sugar, and a tiny amount of fiber. 

Not exactly the greatest foods for our body, but we equate it with a celebration, and love the taste and tradition. 

So how do we mitigate this intensive holiday effect?

When we cook protein rich foods like meat, toxic molecules - heterocyclic amines (HCAs) - are formed, and are shown to cause heart issues and cancer (Khan et al., 2020). Chicken in fact is shown to have some of the highest amounts of HCAs.

Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) and Reactive Nitrogen species (RNS) are free radicals that are found in meats, causing lipid oxidation, which in turn causes meat spoilage or and the formation of chemical compounds that are toxic (Manessis et al., 2020). 

Eating berries with meat, or even marinating meat in berry juices prior to cooking, can mitigate these toxin effects by lowering the amount of HCAs, ROS, and RNS.

Berries also change the microbiome (Rodríguez-Morató et al., 2018) to bacteria that supports digestion, and decreasing toxic bacteria to the gut (more firmicutes then bacteroidetes. 

Even just blueberry tea lowered cholesterol for children (Ucar et al., 2017)! 

Have a wonderful barbecue - and take a couple of capsules of Phyto Power to mitigate the effects of meat toxins and ROS. 



Phyto Power

We suggest 1-2 capsules a day in the morning (for a boost of energy) - and when eating meat, 1-2 with the meal.
