If you are interested in health for yourself, your children, spouse or a parent, there are some things you might like to know about the specially chosen synergistic ingredients in Bioraculous along with some of the why that may lie behind its’ power.
At the top of the list is the ORAC content – key to the name Bi-
NOTE: There are no claims made for Bioraculous and it is not sold to address any specific health concern. It is simply designed to be a super tasty green drink that supplies great nutrition you might otherwise not be getting in your daily diet. Your body will assimilate it as it will and if good benefits result for your health, we think that is just fantastic. You will too.
The following is a very brief review of some of the nutritional ideas behind the Bioraculous recipe with a short overview of some key ingredients and what publicly available research and studies have said about potential benefits. At no time can it be assumed your body will process this raw material to provide you the benefits discussed. Everything here is but a tip of a nutritional iceberg of information and you should do further research to get more of the story.

What’s ORAC? Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity.
This is all about a foods ability to forestall the aging process.
Studies at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University suggest that consuming fruits and vegetables with a high-
Key to the research is the amount of ORAC value per serving that appears to have positive effect. This is 3000 to 5000 per day. According to the studies, any more than this with any given serving goes unused due to the bloods tight regulation processes. (For a fuller review of this research, see the “USDA ORAC Research” link next to the button that brought you to this page.)
Bioraculous was formulated to hit the 5000 ORAC target. Knowing that there can be margin of error, a bit more ORAC power went into it allowing for the plus or minus 14.99% standard deviation in final results. Bioraculous tested at 6128 ORAC value per serving, and accounting for the worst case downside standard deviation in test results, you are assured of getting a minimum 5200 ORAC per serving positively meeting the high end daily target.
The power ingredients of Bioraculous
Let’s start with greens. We all know we need to eat more greens. Good greens. Greens with power -
Barley Grass Juice Powder,
Alfalfa on which was dried a trace mineral complex.
All of the above contain some of the best pH factors available in food – meaning optimal minerals and cofactors for positive health. They contain large amounts of natural chlorophyll and an antioxidant enzyme called superoxide dismutase. Yes these are powerful greens.
Chlorophyll is the green pigment in plants and it is what absorbs the sun’s energy for photosynthesis. It is to plants what blood is to humans and its’ molecular makeup is similar with the exception of magnesium filling the central atom in chlorophyll vs. iron in blood.
For people, chlorophyll has been seen to have anti-
Growth and repair of tissue,
Delivering magnesium and carrying oxygen to cells,
Stimulating cells to improve oxygen supply,
Helping assimilate calcium and chelating (taking out) heavy minerals (metals).
These are just a few things in addition to being anti-
As cooking destroys most chlorophyll in plants, it is important to get raw into the diet and Bioraculous helps to support this objective.
Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) is an enzyme with powerful free radical fighting ability. Oxygen free radicals are molecules that can damage cells. SOD is located heavily in the mitochondria which is the main cellular O2 production site. Decreased SOD activity there with consequent oxidative mutations may contribute to aging in cells and have been associated with neurodegenerative disease. Where do you find Superoxide Dismutase in food? Greens.
Trace Minerals. In the Bioraculous greens blend we also put in a pinch of natural trace minerals. Natural health clinics around the world have seen what might be called miracles occur in health with trace mineral supplementation. The consensus seems to be that we just don’t get enough from a commonly mineral deficient food supply and research seems to bear that out.
Getting a little mineral supplementation everyday is another form of health insurance -
When formulating for our ORAC target a single potent item could have been chosen, but that would potentially eliminate the wide ranging benefits of multiple nutrients that can act in concert with each other. One review of the label shows a mix of juice and extracts from powerful and often exotic berries, fruits, vegetables, roots, spices, kelp and resveratrol – intimated by some as the beneficial health ingredient behind red wine.
So what does this mix provide? Phyto-

In animal studies, other benefits become apparent. In humans, others still, or not. The “or not” in the last sentence is telling. What one thing works for some individuals, does not work for others, and what other thing works for those, is useless for someone else.

About Probiotics. Pro = for, biotic = life. Probiotics are the healthy, life supporting and enhancing living bacteria that inhabit the intestinal tract. They are also called the intestinal flora. The average adult has 3 to 4 pounds worth.
They have a job to perform and without them life would be impossible.
They manufacture some of the B vitamins like (B3), (B6), folic acid, and biotin.
They manufacture the milk-
They actively produce antibacterial substances which kill or deactivate hostile, disease-
Some bacteria have been shown to have powerful anti-
They improve the efficiency of the digestive tract. When they are weakened, bowel function is poor.
They effectively help to reduce high cholesterol levels.
They help protect against radiation damage and deactivate many toxic pollutants.
They help to recycle estrogen which reduces the likelihood of menopausal symptoms and osteoporosis.
Therapeutically they have been shown to be useful in treatment of acne, psoriasis, eczema, allergies, migraine, gout, rheumatic and arthritic conditions, cystitis, candidiasis, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, and some forms of cancer.
The interaction between bacteria in our gut and immune system is key to protecting us from pathogens, and also to protect us (or not) from obesity and metabolic disorders (like diabetes).
Probiotics are big news these days and folks are starting to catch on to their power, also that probiotics can be affected by certain circumstances.
Good bacteria are influenced by the degree of infection by yeast and other “bad” bacteria to which the bowel can be subjected, and certain drugs, especially antibiotics, can severely upset probiotic life. (Penicillin and tetracycline will kill friendly probiotic bacteria just as efficiently as they will kill disease-
When bad bacteria step into the places where the good bacteria should exist, problems can ensue. Bioraculous everyday gives you a probiotic fix.
Look what’s here; 1 billion colony forming units of:
More about these in a moment, but you will note that just as important as what is in Bioraculous, is what is NOT in Bioraculous.
Yes it is true. No acidophilus in Bioraculous. The reason is twofold. It’s already in large supply in many foods like all yogurt products, which some folks should not consume specifically because of this, but more importantly, in healthy adults, acidophilus is not a significant part of normal intestinal flora anyway and there is no reason to have it in supplement form. Many probiotic bacteria produce lactic acid and more is not necessarily better and with Acidophilus’ potential to create the toxic form d-
Let’s look at what is.
Bifidobacterium Longum and Bifidobacterium Bifidum.
You don’t see these together every day in probiotic formulas. In the book, Minerals for the Genetic Code by Charles Walters on the work of Dr. Richard Olree, these are the two super star probiotics that make the trace element yttrium bio-
Yttrium is a trace element and plays a role in protein synthesis and is one of the most important as a stop termination codon where gene expression is concerned. Deficiency is strongly correlated with negative neurological developments.
Aluminum, the third most abundant mineral in the earth’s crust, is used in the makeup and design of all of earth’s bacteria except for two, Bifidobacterium Longum and Bifidobacterium Bifidum which process yttrium. With a predisposition to aluminum use by most bacteria and our use of aluminum in foods, cosmetics and cooking utensils supporting those bacteria, it is easy to see the over-
This can lead to the selective starvation of the two probiotic bacteria that process yttrium, and where there is no yttrium, there is no proper gene codon for proper gene expression, particularly where neurological events are concerned.
This is not to be underestimated in importance. Your brain and neurological system has to work for everything else to work.
Some make mention that in India there is a very low incidence of Alzheimer’s. Of note in this observation is they are also big users of yttrium-
As an aside, the text from author Chaim T. Horowitz, Scandium and Yttrium in the Biological Process, notes that the only consequence of yttrium injection in test animals was extreme conservation of ultra minerals and a three-
Beyond the yttrium connection here, B. Bifidum has been called one of the most ferocious warriors for health in the probiotic army, and B. Longum one of the most significant of all the probiotics for its wide ranging role in a myriad of areas.
This is a beneficial microorganism that helps to promote other beneficial bacteria to grow and prevents overgrowth of pathogenic bacteria. It appears to offer great support to battle inflammatory bowel issues through downregulation of inflammation and in one study it was shown to counteract the pro-

The Flatulence Factor – Not here
One area of concern when selecting probiotics as a supplement, particularly for use in a super green drink such as Bioraculous, is how well does a given probiotic or a mix of probiotics do once it hits a human GI tract.
Some probiotics make people quite gassy. Next to uncomfortable, some might say it makes one socially unacceptable -
Well, you can rest assured that we have taken great care in our selection of the probiotic strains here and along with some very select fiber soothers for the GI tract, people have found Bioraculous to be gas free, unlike many other green drinks in the market.
Of course this is no guarantee that your specific gut situation at the outset will not notice a change which may be the exception, but in a period of time as the good guys overtake the bad this will generally work itself out.
Speaking of Fiber
Everyone knows by now that fiber in the diet is important. But who would think fiber could be exciting? Bioraculous has fiber you can get excited about.
Lignans. We’re talking SDG Flax Lignans (secoisolariciresinol diglucoside).
Lignans are a group of phytonutrients that are found in seeds and grains. Flax seed is by far nature’s richest source of plant lignans. Other sources of lignans such as rye, buckwheat, millet, soya and barley, yield 2 to 6 micrograms of lignans per gram of grain. Flax seed yields an extraordinary 800 micrograms. While the essential fatty acids are in the oil of the flax seed, the lignans are found in the fiber shell of the seed. The oil contains less than 2% of the flax seed lignans.
It takes nearly twenty five pounds of flax seed to produce just 4 ounces of flax lignans. Lignan compounds have shown such extraordinary potential that they have been studied by the National Cancer Institute for their cancer preventative properties. The SDG lignan not only has anti-
Cordyceps Extract Beta Glucan. First, cordyceps has been classified as an adaptogen, i.e. a metabolic regulator which increases the ability of an organism to adapt to environmental factors, and to avoid damage from those factors. Bottom line, he who adapts best, survives longest. Adaptogens are all about anti-
You will also find the other specific fiber factors listed which have been carefully selected to help with absorption and to be soothers to the GI tract to provide everything and more that fiber should.
What No Flax?
Yes. You will not find straight flax seed in Bioraculous. Nor will you find other seeds supplying polyunsaturated fatty acids of the omega 3-
Due to selected preferences and promotion of certain studies, the health food industry has packaged all manner of Omega 3, 6, 9 and similar polyunsaturated oils into products and onto the shelves for consumption. That may not be a good thing, because….
The consumption of polyunsaturated fatty acids lead to faster aging.
Yes, people sometimes do feel great taking the so-
This can be seen in practice, particularly in people over age 40-
So, no fishy or other oils for Bioraculous. What there is, is only…
Lipids are fats. And there are healthy fats which the body needs, without which it would simply fall apart.
Lecithin. This is an antioxidant. It is a mixture of fatty and fat-
Lecithin can be taken when there is difficulty in digesting fat. Lecithin also helps to prevent arteriosclerosis, improves brain function, protects against cardiovascular disease and aids in the absorption of vitamin A by the intestine and thiamine by the liver. It is needed to help repair damage to the liver caused by alcoholism.
Lecithin and the phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylethanolamine it delivers – superstars for cell membrane maintenance – is all about cell protection, brain protection, and is why some might refer to it as brain food.
MCT. Medium Chain Triglycerides. In the animal kingdom, mothers milk for her babies deliver the most important of nutrients. Where humans are concerned, a most important component of mother’s milk is MCTs. They help improve nutrient absorption and digestive function, support the immune system, and they are taken directly to the liver where they are used as an immediate source of cellular energy.
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein structure in the body – important to everything from holding you up to supplying the material for the synthesis of new proteins used in the brain for memory storage.
We bring amino acids in through our diet, but many amino acids are heat-
Since amino acids are critically important to active life processes being carried out effectively and so many people cook a lot of their food thereby destroying what they need to be getting, we added a little bit of…
Pea Protein Concentrate to provide a complex of raw amino acids. While Bioraculous is not a protein drink, having a mix of amino acids available simply adds to the synergism of the overall nutrition factor of Bioraculous which is what makes it so miraculous!
Enzymes – The Catalysts for Life
The chemistry of the body is all about taking one substance and converting it into another substance for biological utilization. Enzymes are the catalysts that make it all work, and work faster. Without enzymes as catalysts, many biological processes just wouldn’t happen, or it could take so long to occur you could die simply waiting around for it to happen.
Sadly, some people do die waiting around for their biological processes to get into gear. While not feeding themselves well and getting important enzymes (as well as amino acids, trace minerals, antioxidants, vitamins and other co-
Now you might think a person that is fat and eating all the time is feeding themselves, the fact is at a molecular level their bodies are starving. They are not getting nor assimilating what is needed for health and what they are getting is simply turned into fat.
Biochemists have referred to enzymes as the body’s “labor force” or even as the “life energy” of the organism. The same might also be said of the enzymes in Bioraculous. We put a select Plant Enzyme Blend into the formulation to provide the work force to not only act as a catalyst for assimilation, but as a force to put more life energy back into the human.
Miraculous? No, Bioraculous!
The last of the ingredients listing indicates natural plant flavors. What these are we will not disclose as it is proprietary information giving Bioraculous its magical taste but we will say they are not at all artificial but 100% natural without any MSG or other excito-
Due to the incredible sweet tooth that people possess (Bioraculous was made for everyone and not just the pond drinking and grass eating health nut) we gave a mellow sweetness to Bioraculous that is very pleasant.
Being adamantly opposed to high fructose corn syrup/corn sugar, sucralose and many other sweeteners, Stevia has played a role. Being not only non-
A Word About Organic and Quality
There is much confusion about the word organic. In the USA, the USDA regulates the use of the word and it means different things depending on the particular foodstuff that bears the label.
We believe that all that is intended as food for humans be grown naturally and sustainably. This basically means without synthetic chemical support in its myriad forms and certainly without genetic modification.
Genetics aside and not considered, certain chemical support in the growing process in the end may not have a direct impact on the nutritional value or quality of the food, as much as it might impact the environment. But this also depends on many variables and what we might be discussing with specificity which is far too deep to go into here.
What we do want to discuss here is something that many people don’t realize where nutrition is concerned. And that is this; just because something is labeled organic, does not mean it is better nutritionally than something that is not labeled organic.
We Grow Food Why?
The purpose of growing food out of the “dirt of the earth”, or more properly the soil, is to bring the mineral up out of the earth into the plant where the magic of photosynthesis can process it with the energy of the sun where we in turn will get it all back out when we eat it (assuming our digestion is working well.)
You may recall the phrase “we are made of the dirt of the earth” -
In the natural farming community, getting mineral into the plant is the goal. The more mineral in the plant, the more dynamic it is in terms of nutritional value and its ability to fight off disease and pestilence (bugs, rot, fungus, etc.), and the more healthy for us.
Tools of the Trade
One tool used in the field to get a quick look at the mineral content of food is called a refractometer. This measures the degree of weight of the juice in the crop being grown be it fruit, vegetable, grass, etc.
The more weight to the juice, the more mineral in the food.
We know the nutritional power of a food through the refractometer by weight tables which index weights of various crops and classifies them as poor, average, good or excellent. For example, a pear would measure poor at 6, average at 10, good at 12, and excellent at 14.
One day we were visiting a workshop with a local organic growing club. The people were very proud of their growing habits and organic production. Upon measuring their bounty, most of what they were growing barely made it up to “poor” for mineral value. Did their organic effort do anything for their food? No it did not. Possibly for the environment and long term sustainability of the soil, but this all depends on a lot of unknowns. What is known is their end product, nutritionally speaking as related to mineral content, was not good.
So this raises the question. If you have two pears in front of you, one that has a certified organic label and measures below 6, and another with no label and measures 12, which one would you likely want to consume in support of building your body and health?
You would want the pear that measures 12. Take it home, wash it well and eat it. The mineral content in that one is far more valuable nutrition-
Processing for Quality
With the knowledge that being organic is not synonymous with quality, and things certified as organic are often priced much higher, there is careful consideration that goes into ingredient selection for a product like Bioraculous. Bottom line, we want the best ingredients that we can get at a price point that won’t preclude most people from buying it because they can’t afford it.
Native American Pure Nutritionals, which produces Bioraculous for you, uses a certified USDA organic processor, cGMP compliant, with very tough FDA oversight. At any moment the FDA can show up at the door (which they have done), to test every single raw ingredient in the warehouse (which they have also done) looking for any form of quality violation. Happily, they’ve always left with nothing to act upon. This is being on top of your game.
Everything that comes in the door is tested for microbials and for things that should not be there, like heavy metals. Each ingredient has to pass muster as top quality. If something fails tests, it can’t be used.
Raw ingredients aren’t just being purchased so they can go into a “health food” product to sell into a market simply because it exists, it is also being consumed by the producers themselves and going to their children and families as well.
Being directly in the thick of the health and wellness business, the objective is to tap top resources and contacts and strive to obtain the highest quality product wherever it may come from worldwide.
Along with everything else, we’ll say it again, Bioraculous is simply -
The best and tastiest green drink in the world.
