How and why we need to keep our blood healthy
Blood is life. Blood in the human body is the equivalent of engine oil in a motor vehicle. Just like the vehicle engine oil, our blood has three main functions: transportation, regulation and protection.
Our erythrocytes, or red blood cells, are the most abundant cell type in the human body. Additionally, erythrocytes are anucleated, which means they don’t have a nucleus. This extra room allows for more haemoglobin to be stored in our red blood cells. Haemoglobin is a respiratory pigment, which binds to either oxygen or carbon dioxide. This allows oxygen to be transported around our body to our tissues and organs (and carbon dioxide to be taken away).
Blood also helps us to maintain homeostasis by regulating our internal body pH and temperature as well as how much water is in our bodies at a given time. Plasma, our connective tissue matrix, is about 90 percent water. Thus, the crucial importance of healthy blood cells cannot be over-emphasised as it is vital in protecting our bodies.
Haemoglobin is the protein inside red blood cells that carries oxygen. Red blood cells also remove carbon dioxide from your body, transporting it to the lungs for you to exhale. Foods rich in iron help us maintain healthy red blood cells. Vitamins are also necessary to build healthy red blood cells. These include vitamin E, found in foods such as dark green vegetables, nuts and seeds, mango, and avocados; vitamins B2, B12, and B3, found in foods such as eggs, whole grains, and bananas; and folate, available in fortified cereals, dried beans and lentils, orange juice, and green leafy vegetables.
Most people don’t think about their red blood cells unless they have a disease that affects these cells. Problems with red blood cells can be caused by illnesses or a lack of iron or vitamins in your diet. Some diseases of the red blood cells are inherited.
Diseases of the red blood cells include many types of anemia, a condition in which the body can’t produce enough normal red blood cells to carry sufficient oxygen throughout the body. People with anemia may have red blood cells that have an unusual shape or that look normal, larger than normal, or smaller than normal.
Symptoms of anemia include tiredness, irregular heartbeats, pale skin, feeling cold, and, in severe cases, heart failure. Children who don’t have enough healthy red blood cells grow and develop more slowly than other children. These symptoms demonstrate how important red blood cells are to your daily life.
In the past two decades, extensive research carried out by top scientists in the world have concluded that the inability of blood to fully perform its function and be healthy gives rise to Oxidative stress which has now been found to be the root cause of a wide range of ailments and diseases.
Oxidative stress (often called OS) is what happens when the body does not have enough antioxidants to neutralise free radicals. Free radicals are the unstable molecules that react with other substances in our body to damage cells or create abnormal ones. Overproduction of free radicals can cause oxidative damage to biomolecules, (lipids, proteins, DNA), eventually leading to many chronic diseases such as atherosclerosis, cancer, diabetics, rheumatoid arthritis, post-ischemic perfusion injury, myocardial infarction, cardiovascular diseases, chronic inflammation, stroke, hypertension, diabetes, and kidney disease. Toxicity of free radicals also contributes to proteins and DNA injury, inflammation, tissue damage and subsequent cellular apoptosis.
Antioxidants are now being looked upon as effective therapy against these diseases, as they have capability to combat by neutralising free radicals. Diet is major source of antioxidants, as well as medicinal herbs. Recognition of upstream and downstream antioxidant therapy to oxidative stress has been proven to be an effective tool in alteration of any damage as well as free radical scavenging. Antioxidants have a wide scope to sequester and scavenge these free radicals to prevent oxidative stress.
Jobelyn occupies a unique and remarkable position in the world of the combination of food and medicine. Laboratory analysis from the reputable GMP Laboratory of USA confirmed that Jobelyn contains Carbohydrates, Protein, Dietary Fibre, Iron which could be classified as food. In addition, it contains other nutrients which could be classified as medicine/food/amino acids and these include selenium, manganese, potassium, zinc, calcium, vitamins like A, B12, C, Omegas 3, 6 & 9, calcium and more. It is a well-known fact that doctors now prescribe multivitamins in addition to drugs. Jobelyn is rich in vitamins and other essential fatty acids and amino acids which are by far superior to the synthetic ones in the market and this is a compelling reason why doctors should prescribe it.
Jobelyn was developed from Sorghum bicolor leaf sheaths, which had been in use as folk medicine for centuries by natives of South Western Nigeria for the treatment of diseases of diverse origin including cancer, diabetes, sickle cell anemia, anemia, arthritis, heart and liver diseases as well as HIV/AIDS. Health Forever Product Limited has spent the past 20 years to scientifically and clinically validate the proof in the positive use of these herbs by the natives to convince scientists and doctors that indeed, this folk medicine is capable of solving a variety of health problems.
Research, clinical and laboratory studies have been carried out in many institutions such as Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-Ife (OAU), Vivacell Laboratory, (Germany) Brunswick Laboratory (USA), MD Biosciences (USA), Texas AM University (USA), Natural Immune System (NIS) Laboratory (USA), Alcorn State University (USA), University College Ibadan (UI), University of Benin (UNIBEN), GMP Laboratories (USA), PhytoLabs (GERMANY), Military Hospital Ikoyi, Lagos and Police Hospital, Falomo, Lagos.
Human clinical trials have been done for sickle-cell anemia, anemia in pre-operative gynecological patients, HIV Studies in human and some of the results have been published in reputable journals. In vitro studies have been done to establish the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory properties of Jobelyn and the results have been published in peer-reviewed journals. In vivo animal studies have been carried out to show the potential of Jobelyn for restoring anemia and extensive in vivo studies were also carried out to establish the power of Jobelyn in neuro-cognitive deficits covering key areas like, stress, psychosis, dementia, schizophrenia, Alzheimer, seizure, depression, aggression, etc. The extensive work done on Jobelyn at Brunswick Laboratory has established that Jobelyn is the most powerful natural antioxidant in the world and the report has been published in a reputable journal. The safety of Jobelyn has been established through animal studies and in some of the human clinical trials carried out.
Being a most powerful and natural antioxidant, Jobelyn has consistently over the years proven to be a very effective means of combating oxidative stress and producing and restoring health blood cell into the body.
