Youngevity’s Dietary Supplement Z-Radical

By Ben Fuchs | Pharmacist Ben

One of the things I always look for in a good nutritional supplement is value. And boy does Youngevity’s dietary supplement Z-Radical have value. Its active ingredient, fucoidan is a potent and unique bio-molecule with a chemical structure that makes it tremendously versatile. Derived from ocean vegetation, fucoidan absorbs and holds water like a sponge; this property is called hygro-scopicity (Latin for “moist looking”) and it’s responsible for the gooiness that is seaweed’s most obvious characteristic.

Z-RadicalScientists know fucoidan as a “sulfated polysaccharide”. This somewhat unwieldy nomenclature simply refers to the fact that this fabulously functional nutritional molecule is a complex of many sugars (poly = many, saccharide = sugar) with an element of sulfur attached. The complex sugar polysaccharide portion of fucoidan is, as described by its designation, made up of various sugar molecules. While most folks have heard of the more common sugar molecules such as glucose and fructose, fucoidan is composed of lots of pieces of a lesser known sugar called fucose, which is considered to be one of the 8 biologically active sugars (in addition to glucose, the most biologically active of all essential sugars, the others are mannose, lactose, xylose, N-acetyl neuraminic acid, N-acetyl glucosamine and N-acetyl galactosamine).

When sugar molecules are strung together in long polysaccharide chains some interesting properties emerge. The most dramatic is the aforementioned greatly enhanced ability to absorb water. This water trapping effect gives polysaccharides a slimy mucous-ey quality that plays an important role in healing wounded biological tissues especially in the digestive system. It may not sound very pretty but the water-trapping mucoid slime basically coats and soothes inflamed and irritated digestive tissue not only calming and healing irritation, but just as importantly “sliming’ away toxic substances like H-Pylori and other pesky bacteria as well as potentially irksome food particles (e.g. gluten and other allergy causing proteins). This makes polysaccharides like fucoidan super helpful for all digestive ailments including Celiac Disease, Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis and Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Z-Radical PowderThe sulfur attachment to the polysaccharide provides benefits too. First of all, sulfur, being water soluble, enhances the hygroscopic nature of fucoidan. That means even more sliminess and even more coating and soothing benefits for inflamed digestive tissue. And the sulfur attachment can be cleaved by the enzymes to releasing the element from its sugar attachment and making it available for use on its own. Formation of collagen, detoxification and activation of important biomolecules like cholesterol and Vitamin D are examples of sulfur dependent biological functions that can be enhanced by the cleavage of sulfur from its polysaccharide attachment. Finally, because of sulfur’s inherent attraction to protein molecule to proteins sulfation of the polysaccharide allows fucoidan to attach itself to various enzymes and tissues enhancing its biological activity even further.

Fucoidan’s complexes of sugars have significant and well-researched anti-cancer properties. A quick search of the scientific website reveals several pages of studies that that demonstrate fucoidan fights various forms of The Empower of Maladies, including cancers of the breast, prostate and skin. And it can help lessen the side effect severity of chemotherapy and radiation. Even if you’re not concerned about cancer, fucoidan provides all-around support for our body’s built-in defenses, the immune system. With the regular assaults on our bodies through food water and air, even if you’re healthy and a-symptomatic, using supplemental fucoidan can be an important maintenance strategy to prevent degeneration and illness before bodily breakdown begins.

Perhaps the most notable role that fucoidan plays in helping keep a human body healthy involves its ability to keep blood circulating smoothly. Embolisms and thrombosis and other defects in blood clotting are a significant and often fatal health condition. According to the National Blood Clot Alliance, every year, up to two million people develop clots. Blood-thinners like Warfarin and Pradaxa, consistently best selling drugs in America, are also among the most toxic and troublesome to monitor. While certainly not as potent as pharmacological agents, in non-critical conditions, the gentle and non-toxic anti-coagulant effects of fucoidan should at least be considered as a therapeutic alternative to toxic medications.

What more could you want in a nutritional supplement! OK, how about anti-inflammatory effects? Once again a quick search of the scientific literature reveals numerous studies that prove this multifunctional and completely non-toxic nutritional/food substance can improve all the markers of the inflammatory process including reduction in pain and blood clogging fiber formation. And for joints, fucoidan may be helpful in treating both osteo and rheumatoid arthritis.

If you’re thinking that you want to make fucoidan a part of your daily supplement regimen (good idea!), I can think of no better and more cost effective product source than Youngevity’s Z-Radical. Each bottle is 90 percent fucoidan and contains 50 mg of the stuff in every ounce (2 tablespoonfuls). According to Dr. Don VerHulst, MD, the physician who formulated the Z-Radical, that’s enough to stimulate stem cell growth an important marker of anti-aging and healing, within 30 days, when taken on a daily basis. It’s pretty reasonably priced, you can use it for general health or to effectively address various health challenges and on top of all of that, it’s berry and banana vehicle tastes pretty good darn good too!

Featuring pure, natural fucoidan, ZRadical™ is an advanced biotherapeutic drink that combines the best of nature and science. This powerful blend is formulated to support immune, cardiovascular, neurological and joint health.

Youngevity’s Beyond Tangy Tangerine

I’ve been designing consumer chemistry products for over a long time. I’ve developed oven cleaners, paint, paint removers, toothpaste, shampoos, skincare products and a whole bunch of nutritional products; hundreds of different products in all. I’m making this point because I want you to know that I know a good formulation when I see one and Youngevity’s Beyond Tangy Tangerine (BTT) is not just a good formulation, in my opinion it’s a great one!

Beyond Tangy Tangerine CanisterBeyond Tangy Tangerine is a powder that you add to water and drink. Although most folks tend to underestimate the therapeutic advantages of fluids over solid medicines, pharmacists don’t. Because we are steeped in the importance of absorption and dosages forms, we know it’s not only the medicine that counts it’s how much is medicine absorbed and used. That’s why in pharmacy school students are trained to understand the singular and unique effectiveness of the liquid format.

This potability affords the Beyond Tangy Tangerine numerous important benefits that you don’t get with ordinary capsules and tablets.

For example, because the BTT nutrients are in solution, there’s no need for dissolution, i.e. the dissolving of nutrients by the action of digestive secretions. The liquid format also allows for rapid absorption form the stomach and intestines. Rapid absorption means quick action.

This bypassing of the digestive mechanics makes liquid nutrition ideal for patients and clients who have some kind of impairment of digestive secretions i.e. acid and enzymes.

When you swallow a capsule or a tablet, that capsule or a tablet has to be processed before it can be used. That means digestive chemicals and juices such must be secreted for said tablet or capsule be disintegrated and dissolved and for the included nutrients to be released. If you’re not making enough of these digestive juices and many Americans aren’t you can quite literally be flushing your pills down the toilet.

Beyond Tangy Tangerine Supplement FactsThe facility with which the nutrients in the BTT enter into the blood can also be important for folks dealing with inflamed or irritated or otherwise broken down digestive lining.

What’s more important, if you’re dealing with celiac disease, Crohn’s Disease, IBS, or ulcerative colitis you are at especially high risk for nutritional deficiencies as absorption through the intestinal wall may be compromised. High concentrations of liquid nutrients can be used to “drive” vitamins and minerals and accessory nutrients through a damaged digestive lining.

The liquid format of the Beyond Tangy Tangerine also allows for formulation of a super concentrated nutritional supplement. There are over 100 different nutritional components in a scoop of BTT; it would impossible to deliver this kind of this kind of nutritional density in a tablet tor capsule. And if you have problems swallowing a pill, once again the liquid nature of the BTT makes dosing yourself with nutrition much easier to accomplish than with the more traditional capsules and tablets.

There’s yet another advantage to the powder/liquid nature of the BTT: flexibility. Because the powdered nutrients can be dissolved into liquids in a literally infinite variety of concentrations, dosages can be tailored to both need and taste. You need more concentrated dose of nutrition? No problem, just add a bit more powder. Your BTT tastes too strong? Again, no problem, just use a little less. Sometimes I’ll just put a half teaspoonful in a glass of water when a need quick pick-me- up. This kind of flexible dosing once again gives the Beyond Tangy Tangerine an ease and convenience that is impossible to achieve with tablets and capsules.

The liquid format of the BTT also allows for what is in essence a sustained release of nutrients. In other words, you can sip on the stuff. In fact you should sip on the stuff! Delivering the nutrients in the Beyond Tangy Tangerine to the body slowly gives you several important benefits. First of all, slow delivery means slow excretion. That means more time for the body to absorb the vitamins and minerals and other nutrients. In the world of nutrition what we don’t use we lose. An overly rapid delivery of nutrition to the body will inevitably result in overly rapid excretion. Even if the digestive tract and system are healthy, this means that much of the nutritional benefit of the BTT vitamins and minerals and accessory nutrients will be lost. That can be unfortunate. But, if the digestive tract is not healthy, swallowing down your BTT to quickly can lead to even more distressing results. Rapidly delivered nutrients will not only be lost via excretion, but even worse, they will tend to attract water as the body attempts to excrete the unabsorbed material. This can cause loose stools and diarrhea. If you use your BTT and find yourself running to the bathroom, for an evacuative emergency, chances are you’re dealing with impaired nutrient absorption. By sipping slowly and using a less concentrated dose you’ll be assuring a more complete absorption of the BTT and preventing the distressing diarrhea that can be caused by malabsorbtion and disturbed digestive chemistry.
