In the Summer of 2005 BioPharma was proud to introduce to the health professions a quantum leap in functional food phytonutrition, NanoGreens10, Fruits and Vegetables to the Power of 10. In the Spring of 2007, we are just as proud to present NanoProPRP, Whey Protein with Colostrum Peptides, a quantum leap in functional food zoonutrition. (zoh-uh -noo-trish-uhn)
Phytonutrients are health promoting compounds found in plants. Zoonutrients* are health promoting compounds found in animals...that provide health benefits beyond the provision of essential nutrients and energy. Functional Foods are those that contain one or more of such substances...thought to influence health.1 (zoh-uh-noo-tree-uh- nts)
NanoProPRP provides a scientifically formulated blend of the highest purity whey and bovine colostrum, synergistically fortified with carefully selected nutrients to help
- support tissue repair and regeneration
- optimize endogenous antioxidant status
- promote detoxification
- modulate immune function
As BioPharma motto is blending high science with high compliance you can be sure NanoProPRP also tastes great and mixes instantly.
Whey protein isolate: A diet optimal in complete, balanced and easily digested lean protein of the highest biological value(BV) that promotes strong muscles and bones, optimal tissue regeneration and repair, a focused mind, and a balanced appetite. NanoProPRP uses certified undenatured whey protein that assures the bioactive peptides that promote antioxidant, detoxification, immune and repair functions have not been denatured by heat.
Whole Colostrum: Colostrum is the pre-milk fluid produced by the mammary glands during the first few days after giving birth. Colostrum is a rich source of prebiotics, antibodies, and growth and immune factors, as well as complete protein, healthy lipids, and vitamins and minerals. NanoPros bovine colostrum is derived from the first and second milking of cows, when the immune and growth factors are at their peak.
Proline Rich Polypeptides (PRP): PRP are natural nano-peptides carefully extracted from colostrum. These delicate molecules are then packaged in BioPharmas patented NanoSorb technology to help them survive the harsh environment of the digestive system. These PRP include immune factors thought to balance our immune response and growth factors thought to support repair and regeneration. Gram for gram, NanoProPRPs colostrum powder has more PRP than any other colostrum supplement, making it the most powerful immune modulator of its kind.
Reduced Glutathione: Reduced glutathione is a very special peptide that plays a major and essential role in health as an antioxidant, detoxifier, and regenerator of vitamin C. Our bodies can make glutathione from the peptides in whey as long as they have not been inactivated (denatured) by too much heat. However, glutathione as such is not absorbable. Therefore, in NanoProPRP reduced glutathione is pre-packaged in BioPharmas patented liposomal technology, called NanoSorb, to enhance bioavailability.
Organic Selenium: Highly bioavailable, organic selenium is added because it helps regenerate glutathione, the above very powerful antioxidant, detoxifier, and regenerator of vitamin C.
Soluble Fiber Prebiotics: Inulin, a special class of carbohydrate present in fruits and vegetable roots, are only slightly digested in the small intestine. Therefore, though sweet, they provide much fewer net calories than most carbohydrates. Fermented by the "friendly bacteria" in the colon, called probiotics, soluble fibers support a healthy colonic ecosystem and are therefore called prebiotics. Inulins soluble fibers may also support normal cholesterol and blood sugar maintenance and mineral absorption.
Enzymes: Although already less then 1% lactose, NanoProPRP contains lactose digesting enzymes (called lactase) to help prevent any discomfort or gas from milk lactose intolerance.
PRP and Immune Balance
"PRP activates an under-active immune system, helping it move into action against disease-causing organisms. PRP also suppresses an over-active immune system, such as is often seen in (allergies, chemical sensitivities and) autoimmune diseases. PRP is highly anti-inflammatory and also appears to act on T-cell precursors to produce helper T-cells and suppresser T-cells2
The thymus is a small, flat, organ located under the breast bone in front of the heart. It is of central importance in the maturation of T cells which help our immune systems stay in balance. These T cells are called Th-1 and Th-2. When the T cells are in balance, our immunes systems:
- Respond appropriately to infectious invaders, like viruses, bacteria, yeasts and parasites.
- Do not over react by mounting an attack against small amounts of generally harmless substances, or even our own body?s proteins, as in allergies, chemical sensitivities, and autoimmune diseases!
When our immune systems do not react strongly enough to infectious agents, or are overwhelmed by them, we have a Th-1? immune imbalance. When our immune systems are over- reactive we have a Th-2 imbalance and we may manifest allergies, chemical sensitivities and even auto-immune disease.
Proline Rich Polypeptides, abbreviated PRPs, do not treat any symptoms or diseases. Rather they send signals to the thymus to help the immune system regain its proper balance.
In its 1995 report on functional foods the American Dietetic Association concluded the following:
Nutrients and other bioactive food components that occur naturally in foods act synergistically with other dietary elements...dietetics professionals have a unique opportunity to promote whole foods.... In addition...functional food products can be developed that further enhance the health benefits of food...a combined functional food and food supplement approach may afford the greatest protection...."
The team of scientists and doctors at BioPharma Scientific created NanoProPRP to be just such a functional food zoonutrient supplement combination.
Maximizing Absorption with NanoSorb
However, maximizing bioavailability is also of vital importance today. To quote Jean Mayer of the USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging, Tufts University, Boston, MA,
"...as our knowledge grows...we will learn how best to create new products through altering their concentrations, combinations and/or their bioavailability."
The importance of delivery systems when formulating nutraceuticals is further underlined in the Journal of Drug Targeting,
"...we strongly advocate serious consideration of the bioavailability of dietary supplements... to improve their bioavailability using delivery systems such as liposomal formulations."
Biopharma Scientific has created NanoProPRP as a quantum leap in zoonutrition by combining proven potency and purity with our patented nanotechnology delivery system to maximize absorption.
NanoProPRP is formulated with patented NanoSorb which utilizes nanosized liposomes (literally fat bodies) that naturally encapsulate the delicate bioactive peptides to protect them from digestion in the stomach and maximize their availability for absorption by the small intestine!
NanoProPRP is manufactured in a cGMP (NNFA - A rated), Organic & FDA approved facility.
We have provided this website as a resource for you to better understand the importance of zoo- and phyto-nutrients to life long wellness and to better equip you to appreciate the superiority of our products. If any questions or concerns remain, do not hesitate to contact us directly.
