Vitals Echinacea extract or the purple cone flower (Echinacea purpurea) is a plant originally from Norther America. By now, it is very well known in Europe too, due to its beneficial effect on the immune system and most particularly on the respiratory system. 

The highest concentration of active ingredients is found in the root. The root contains a broad spectrum of active ingredients such as polysaccharides, alkylamides, and cichoric acid. Alkylamides are fat-soluble substances found in the root. These improve aspecific immunity by supporting the normal function of macrophages.
Polysacharides and cichoric acid are water-soluble substances that improve specific (adaptieve) immunity by supporting B-cells as well as the creation of interleukins and immunoglobulins.

The active substances of plants are well hidden inside cells. Plant cells are surrounded by tough and fibrous cellulose cell walls. This necessitates careful extraction to liberate the active ingredients from the plant cells so as they become available for the hun body. A herbal medicine that will solely contain the herb (not the extract) will be far less effective. .

The active ingredients from echinacea are both lipophilic and hydrophilic. This means it is important to select an extration method that isolates and extracts both types of components from the roots.

Unique extraction method
The PhytoPrevent extraction method is very much suited to result in a high quality extract. Typical for this patented method is how a solvent is used that uses water and alcohol in varying concentrations, resulting on extraction of both the hydrophilic and lipophilic components that make this such a powerful herbal medicine. 
It is important to isolate as much as possible from the original root because there is still so little iknown about how the various components actually work and it is most likely the ingredients work synergistically.
Another advantage of this unique PhytoPrevent product is how only organically grown echinacea is used. The final product is free of alcohol, and freeze-dried so they are not exposed to high temperatures during the production process. PhytoPrevent herbal extracts are produced in Europe according to a patented extraction method, preserving as many of the beneficial properties of the plant as possible.

Should I get the vaccin against COVID-19 or not? On vaccines, ivermectin, paracetamol and fever 

By late April most older adults in the Netherlands will have received an invitation from the government or their physicians to get vaccinated. My own invitation came in this past week, quite a bit earlier than expected. 
 
To be honest, it took me much longer to decide than anticipated. And no, it wasn't just because of all the health scares around the AstraZeneca vaccin due to rare thrombosis incidences. 
 
In general, I'm a fan of vaccinations. As a child I received all of the vaccins that were given to us, with no questions asked.
When travelling to Brazil in 2002, I also followed the guidelines to get vaccinated against yellow fever and hepatitis B. 
 
Like most people, I've also been in awe about the speed at which vaccines were developed for COVID-19. Unlike some, I'm also not as concerned about the use of new mRNA technology to develop the Moderna and Pfizer vaccins. What does appal me though is the high cost for these vaccins, that run in to almost €20 for those high tech vaccins as opposed to just about €2 for a traditional vaccin like Oxford AstraZeneca.
What's worse is that those vaccins don't even offer absolute protection and people may be reinfected with a newer virus strain. Or they may require yearly booster vaccins. 
 
As I was pondering whether or not to get vaccinated, a Youtube video passed by in which dr. John Campbell interviewed dr. Pierre Kory. 
 

Forget about exercising to lose weight: you can't outrun a bad diet! 

A few days ago, an article showed up in my newsfood about a remarkable result of research done on the Hadza tribe in Tanzania, which still leads a traditional hunter-gatherer lifestyle. 
Despite walking an average of a multiple of ten thousands of steps every day, they barely need more calories than the average couch potato in a Western country. 
That same day I discussed with an old friend who had read the same news story. He told me how he had trained for a marathon in the past, but barely dropped any weight while doing so. Only when he spent a week on liquid foods at a spa, he succeeded in losing weight which he mostly thanks to the relaxed environment. Otherwise it was next to impossible. Apparently his body really clung to its precious body fat! 
 
But how was this possible? We didn't really know though we had our suspicions. I I could tell much about the same story. Yes, I'd drop weight pretty fast in the first few weeks of the cycling season or on a longer cycling holiday, but would get stuck at my regular (still too heavy) summer weight while I wasn't really inhaling tons of food. Except then for the Route des Cent Cols during which I could barely eat enough to stay fit and sleep well for all those mountains. 
 
Let's find out more about this particular research!
 
When Herman Pontzer set off for the rugged savannah of Tanzania to spend a summer with the local Hadza people, he thought he knew what he would find. As an evolutionary biologist, his aim was to measure how the Hadza’s hunter-gatherer lifestyle causes them to burn more energy. Because we all know the more exercise you do, the more calories you burn and the slimmer you become, right? Well no, not exactly.
Don’t expect any meaningful weight change in the long term from exercise alone.”
 
What Pontzer and his fellow researchers discovered flew in the face of received wisdom about how our metabolism works. Although the Hadza lead far more active lives than ours – routinely walking long distances, they undertake more physical activity daily than the typical American does in a week – their energy expenditure was no greater. They were burning the same number of calories as men and women from industrialised populations. Our bodies, concluded Pontzer, seem to maintain daily energy expenditure within a narrow window, no matter what lifestyle we lead. While obesity is largely caused by overconsumption, it appears there’s little we can do to change the calories we burn.
 

What's the relation between histamine and gluten intolerance?

A short while ago, I was alerted to research that is being conducted on histamine intolerance. The reason it piqued my interest was the remark on how perceived gluten intolerance may in reality be a case of histamine intolerance. The researchers that were interviewed spoke about probiotics being developed to 'cure' histamine intolerance.

Therefore, without further ado, an explanation on what histamine intolerance really is.

What is histamine?

Histamine is an extremely important bioactive chemical that is indispensable in the efficient functioning of many body systems. It is a neurotransmitter and is involved in the regulation of stomach acid, the permeability of blood vessels, muscle contraction, and brain function.
In humans, the highest histamine concentrations are found in the skin, lung, and stomach, with smaller amounts in the brain and heart.

Histamine is also essential in defending the body against invasion by potentially disease-causing agents such as bacteria, viruses and other foreign bodies.

Histamine is made and stored within white blood cells such as mast cells.
When the immune system is activated in response to foreign material entering the body, histamine is the first "defense chemical", or more correctly, inflammatory mediator released in the process called inflammation. Inflammation is the clinical evidence that the immune system is responding to a potential threat to the body. Histamine is always present when inflammation occurs, and excess histamine will result in symptoms that resemble inflammation.

In addition to its role in controlling vital body processes and defending against foreign invaders, histamine is a key mediator in the symptoms of an allergic reaction. Since allergy is essentially an inflammatory reaction, histamine, together with other protective inflammatory mediators is released in response to the allergen.
Allergens are components of living cells that in themselves are harmless, such as plant pollens, animal dander, mould spores, dust particles, dust mites, and foods. An allergic reaction to these "foreign but harmless" substances occurs when the immune system mistakes these innocuous materials for a potential threat.

Particulate matter and your health

As the Dutch government decided to move away from natural fossilized energy sources, we are moving towards solar and wind energy.
Because solar and wind energy cannot provide all energy and a decision to also move away from natural gas, biomass plants seemed to be the perfect solution.

Biomass is plant or animal material used for energy production (electricity or heat). It can be purposely grown energy crops, wood or forest residues, waste from food crops (wheat straw), horticulture (yard waste), food processing (corn cobs), animal farming (manure, rich in nitrogen and phosphorus), or human waste from sewage plants.

Burning plant-derived biomass releases CO2, but it has still been classified as a renewable energy source in the EU and UN legal frameworks because photosynthesis cycles the CO2 back into new crops. In some cases, this recycling of CO2 from plants to atmosphere and back into plants can even be CO2 negative, as a relatively large portion of the CO2 is moved to the soil during each cycle.

However, over the past few months it has become clear how a lot of biomass comes from trees, that were previously pristine forests in the USA or the Baltics.
While in the best case, the use of biomass could even be CO2 negative, burning biomass will result in excessive CO2 output locally as well as of particulate matter.
This is why almost overnight, due to negative public opinion, politicians changed their mind. Too late though, there are already few hundred biomass plants that are being constructed due to substantial subsidies that were handed out, so we can expect a substantial worsening of air quality in the upcoming decade(s) because of the increased amount of particulate matter.

Zinc and HCQ

In the past few months, nearly everyone will have become familiar with the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and how it has been welcomed as a miracle drug, only to be set aside as being too dangerous to expose sick patients with underlying cardiovascular diseases to it.

Upon learning how HCQ is supposed to be used in this crisis, I was flabbergasted to read how HCQ was put to use by itself, as a drug on its own. True enough, HCQ is a malaria drug, but it was not just meant to be used as a curative medicin on its own for COVID-19 but as a messenger to transport the true miracle mineral, zinc into cells.
The now famous Zelenko protocol which uses HCQ , azithromycin and zinc as well as a number of other essential vitamins and minerals, was never meant to be used in hospital either, but for use by doctors on patients who had just fallen ill.

Now the researchers who discredited HCQ in the Lancet article have been debunked as having used fraudulous data in order to promote a much more expensive drug in which one of the authors had a vested interested, we think it is about time to explain a thing or two on why and how HCQ is used in combination with zinc.

Because of a recent case in the Netherlands about excessive lead exposure in a school for young children, we were asked how to avoid lead poisoning. Hence why we present you this blog article. 

How to avoid lead poisoning

Although exposure to lead has decreased within the last two decades, it is still a concern and caution is advised, especially for children who have access to toys with lead-based paint or individuals who live in older homes. In some instances, lead can leach from the main water pipes and into the household water supply. If exposed to lead, eating a healthy diet can help reduce its absorption by the body.

When lead is consumed, research shows it can cause learning and behavior problems; as it accumulates, it can cause lasting problems with growth and development. Infants and children are at a higher risk because they absorb lead more quickly than adults, in addition to being more likely to put non-food items that might contain lead in their mouth.  

How to prevent getting sick from the flu

You can prevent germs from making you ill in two ways: prevent entry into the body by careful hygiene, and if they do get in, make sure your body’s natural immune system is able to fight these germs, so they self-destruct before overwhelming the system.

Most flu germs are spread in two ways:

  • touching such as hand-to-hand contact
  • droplet spread when germs ride along on tiny water droplets that are sneezed or coughed into the air

Try these flu prevention tips to avoid person-to-person spread:
  • avoid shaking hands, but bow or give a head nod
  • avoid nose-picking as the nose is a breeding ground for germs
  • sneeze into a disposable handkerchief and if you don't have one available, sneeze inside your elbow
  • shun coughers and sneezers as much as possible.
  • avoid crowded rooms

Breathe in, breathe out!

Did you ever notice you don't have equal air flow through each nostril? Most people alternate between breathing through the left and the right nostril. The only time you are vividly aware of the existence of such a cycle is when you have congestion in just one side of the nose, which results in only being able to breathe more easily every few hours and then feel congested in the other period.
