Because of the amazing demand
for our "wholistic" consulting and
revolutionary products, we have to limit every inquiry
(e-mail and telephone) to 15 minutes in order to help all those
in need. After the first 15 minutes we charge our normal
fee. Please make use of all the free resources available 24
hours/day, by clicking on the buttons in the left-hand menu of
every product page. Thank you in advance.
To better serve its
customers the manufacturer has decided to handle all international sales of
BioSuperfood from their newly
opened London office. The office is run by Dr. Kiriac's daughter, Rodika Kiriac,
so you are in good hands. For international sales, please go to one of the local
representatives below [green buttons] or:
The BioPreparation labels were changed to make them more FDA compliant.
Instead of listing the specific names of Spirulina pacifica,
and Spirulina platensis separately, the labels now list Spirulina
collectively as one.
Hypromellose is now listed as a separate ingredient. It is
used as an emulsifier, thickening and suspending agent, and an alternative
to animal gelatin capsules. This makes BioPreparation vegetarian-friendly
containing no animal ingredients.
The “certification” statement on the label was taken off
because the FDA would require certification for EVERY single batch be
submitted to them. This would create an unreasonable paperwork nightmare.
Rather than raise the price of your bottle, the manufacturer chose to take
the advertising “claim” off the label. Rest assured that Dr. Kiriac still
adheres to the same quality control he always has. For details, go to: Quality_Assurance.
The ingredients, formula and quality of BioPreparation have not
changed, just the cosmetic appearance of the label.

Russell explains the difference between whole food
products and supplements. Are you flushing the benefits down the toilet?
One of the most frequently asked questions
(FAQ) is, “Will
your holistic products
any interactions or contraindications with medications (drugs) for me or
my pet?” While this is certainly a valid concern with isolated
supplements (like a Vitamin C pill), fortunately our whole superfood
products (like an orange) do not have these disadvantages. That is why
we focus on WHOLE food products that balance the WHOLE body rather than
just treat the symptoms like isolated supplements. The short answer to
the question is, “At this time, we know of no known interactions
Seacure or ALPHA-G with any drug (medication),
vitamin, herb, supplement, homeopathic remedy or other holistic
This FAQ highlights one major difference
between our whole superfood
products and drugs (and even most isolated supplements). Drugs
and supplements tend to
high concentrations of active ingredients to treat just the symptoms.
For example, an arthritis supplement to treat joint pain might include
high concentrations of glucosamine or chondroitin sulfate. Did you know
high doses of
glucosamine could have side effects? An isolated Vitamin C
supplement may have high doses of ascorbic acid (1,000-2,000 mg.). A doctor
or vet would rightfully be concerned if you were taking or giving
therapeutic doses of Vitamin C in the 3,000-10,000 mg. per day range and
taking certain medications, undergoing cancer treatment or going in for
surgery. In contrast,
our whole food products BioPreparation and BioSuperfood have less than 5
mg. Vitamin C per capsule. An orange only has 60-70 mg. of ascorbic
acid. No doctor or vet should be concerned with any interactions or
contraindications with medications (drugs) for you or your pet. Does this mean there is no holistic benefits and our products do
not balance the immune system? Consider these studies.
Scientists discovered the beneficial
nutrient in citrus fruits that prevents scurvy is Vitamin C. What is not
commonly known is by taking isolated Vitamin C in the form of an
ascorbic acid supplement one only gets rid of the symptoms of scurvy.
When the ascorbic acid supplement is discontinued the symptoms and
disease returns. However, if one gets Vitamin C made from an extract of
peppers not only do the symptoms disappear but the
scurvy is gone when discontinued. Vitamin C in the form of a
whole food product contains rutin, bioflavonoids, Vitamin E, selenium
and zinc that Nature dictated is needed for Vitamin C to work optimally
in our body. All these complementary nutrients are present in whole food
sources of Vitamin C (for example, green peppers, oranges, rose hips, acerola cherries, algae).
an isolated supplement with just ascorbic acid or by juicing an orange
and throwing away the pulp and peel, one is missing all the above
necessary nutrients. The question now becomes, Do you want just the
absence of symptoms for you and your pet or do you want “wholistic”
Here is another important benefit of using
whole food products. The more expensive Vitamin C supplements are
buffered to prevent nausea for those with a sensitive stomach (cannot
tolerate ascorbic acid). Nature included the buffer
ingredients needed in the pulp and skin of whole food sources of Vitamin
C (the white pulpy part of the orange). So, who is smarter—the scientist
that discovered we need to put back the buffer ingredients in isolated
Vitamin C supplements or Nature? New research shows that 90% of the
antioxidant power of whole foods is contained in the pulp and peel. Do
you want ALL the benefits Nature put in whole foods for you and your pet
or do you want to just
treat the symptoms?
