GliSODin® - SOD (SUPEROXIDE DISMUTASE) is the key and most active ingredient in Pollen Burst is SOD. ProJoba International uses the patented SOD/Gliadin (GliSODin) in Pollen Burst because it is the first clinically proven, orally bio-available vegetarian form of supplemental SOD. This simple chart (click here) describes GliSODin's most significant benefits .Below is the information and research done on SOD and more specifically GliSODin. A 135 page book, available from any bookstore, discusses this exact ingredient and its effectiveness.

SOD/GliSODin It's the detoxifying enzyme that every cell in the body manufactures (and needs) to fight cell damage. As you grow older, your body produces SOD less effectively, which can cause disease and aging. In addition, lowered levels of SOD are typically found in those with chronic illnesses.

Now there's a way to restore your body's SOD level with SOD/GliSODin, the first orally
bio-available, vegetarian form of supplemental SOD. In
SOD/GliSODin: "The Ultimate Defense Against Disease and Aging," leading nutritionist Carl Germano tells you how this amazing nutritional supplement can be used to combat chronic disorders such as arthritis, asthma, cancer, vision problems, and neurological and cardiovascular ailments, as well as aging.

Secalate™ - FLOWER POLLEN EXTRACTS AND THEIR MICRONUTRIENTS: Pollen, one of nature's most remarkable gifts, is the very foundation of the plant world. It is as ancient as the earth itself, as complex as the concept of time, and as plentiful as grains of sand. Now, through the unique merger of nature with science, it has become our true, cellular super-food. Like snowflakes, each species of pollen grain is distinctive and carries a "fingerprint." The microscopic pollen grain is the richest full-spectrum source of trace elements and nutrients known to humanity. Each grain contains vitamins, minerals, amino acids, RNA and DNA factors, plant hormones, enzymes, unsaturated fatty acids, prostaglandin precursors, as well as numerous other essential bio-factors necessary for life.

The History of Pollen: The use of pollen as a dietary supplement is not unique to our modern world. The people of ancient China, Persia, and Egypt have used pollen, collected from bees, as a food. Archaeologists have discovered identifiable parts of pollen that are more than 100 million years old. Scientists attribute this phenomenal preservation to the nearly impermeable sheath that encases each grain of pollen. This tough husk enables the pollen to remain intact for thousands of years and protects its valuable nutrient core. Until recently only bees, because of special enzymes in their saliva, have been able to penetrate the pollen husk and benefit from its contents.

Nearly 50 years ago Gösta Carlsson, a Swedish biologist, beekeeper, and inventor of the bee pollen trap, came upon research concerning a group of beekeepers in Russia. They consumed pollen residue and lived extraordinarily long lives, confirming Gösta's belief that pollen held exceptional powers. His interest led Swedish researchers to intensify their studies of pollen and its use as a dietary supplement. What they found was a natural, wholesome food source that can replenish our nutritionally deficient diet. By unlocking the secrets hidden within its husk, we now know that pollen is much more than microscopic dust. It is the male seed of the plant kingdom and represents the vital half of the reproductive cycle. Pollen guarantees our survival and the proliferation of the plant world.

Bee Pollen versus Flower Pollen: There are two types of pollen: bee pollen and harvested flower pollen. Our products are made solely from flower pollen. Why is harvested flower pollen superior to bee pollen? Bee pollen is collected by bees from a variety of flowers, plants, and weeds near the hive. While pausing in various other places, the hard working bee contaminates this pollen mixture with molds, spores, and bacteria. Thus, it is impossible to produce a stable, consistent, and clean product from this contaminated source. It should be emphasized that the major problem with bee pollen is not the pollen itself, but the collection, storage, and processing methods used by the bee.

The ProJoba manufacturer has created pharmaceutical grade, pure organic flower pollen extracts. They are hypoallergenic and contain none of the pollutants or contaminants found in bee pollen. These products are made from select pollens and are extracted directly from specially grown flowers. This process removes the pollen husk, providing total, pure pollen extraction with the full array of essential bio-factors and nutrients. You will find each capsule and tablet to be a consistent, high quality product. These products are for the nutrition of the human body, derived from nature and produced in a sound, scientifically proven process. This biotechnology has been exclusively provided to ProJoba International for distribution.

ProJoba works with raw material providers from around the world to supply the key components found in Pollen Burst. One of the key ingredients found in Pollen Burst is a rare blend of precise amounts of flower pollen extracts. Flower pollen is a source of great health benefits and has been known for decades as a life giving source of micro nutrition for the cells in our body. The use of pollen extracts in North American has been primarily geared toward the development of pharmaceutical drugs, but clinical studies from around the world have proved that flower pollen extracts have a far more valuable roll in the prevention of several health concerns as well as a natural way to combat health problems that face people everyday.

Flower pollen contains over 187 micronutrients. Nutrients so small that they can not be seen with the naked eye. Vitamins, Minerals, Essential Amino Acids, Carotenoids, Enzymes, Lipids, Fatty Acids, Prostaglandin's, Phytosterols and Flavinoids. If you look around you will not find any multi vitamins that has as many elements in them as flower pollen extracts do.

Progallate™ - GREEN TEA EXTRACT (50% EGCG): Green tea is one of the most consumed beverages in the world today, second only to water, and has been used for over 4,000 years for its health enhancing benefits. The properties of green tea have been widely researched.

The majority of the health benefits produced by green tea are attributed to the many polyphenols it contains (epicatechin, epicatechin-3-gallate, epigallocatechin, and epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG).

The polyphenols in green tea have demonstrated significant properties in the following areas of research (in numerous human, animal and in vitro studies). For additional research information on green tea extracts, see the RESEARCH  PAGE.

B VITAMIN - The Energy Vitamin: The B vitamins are group of vitamins vital to a vigorous and energetic long life. A deficiency in B Vitamins can lead to serious health problems. B vitamins are water soluble vitamins and easily flushed out of the body. People on weight-loss diets, alcoholics or those who take antibiotics are more prone to having vitamin B deficiency. Pollen Burst contains five very important B Vitamins:

B1-Thiamin Thiamin is necessary for adrenal gland function, proper immune performance and the synthesis of neurotransmitters. It also plays a role in the metabolism of food and alcohol.

B3-Niacin:is necessary for the body's production of energy. It has also been useful in treating high cholesterol, schizophrenia, neurological disease and Raynaud's syndrome (a blood vessel disorder).

B6-Pyridoxine:helps regulate the levels of homocysteine, a byproduct of protein breakdown that damages arteries and makes them prone to cholesterol deposits.

B12-Cobalamin is required for normal gene function, energy production, the formation of blood cells and proper immunity.

Pantothenic acid is essential for human growth, reproduction, and normal physiological functions. It is a precursor of the coenzymes which are involved in more than 100 different metabolic pathways including energy metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and lipids, and the synthesis of lipids, neurotransmitters, steroid hormones, porphyrins and hemoglobin. B Vitamins May Be Helpful For:

o Maintain the health of nerves, skin, eyes, and mouth
o Vital for the nervous system
o Assists in the release of energy from foods
o Has antioxidant activity
o Useful for stress, depression, and anxiety
o Helpful with heart problems and improving heart health

B vitamins and Weight Loss: B vitamins are important in terms of weight loss, and they are often known as the 'stress' vitamins. Vitamins B3 (Niacin) and B6 are especially important because they help to supply fuel to cells, which are then able to burn energy. Vitamin B6 is necessary for the production of pancreatic enzymes which help you to digest food. If your digestion is good, you will be much more likely to use your food efficiently, instead of storing it as fat.

Vitamins B3 (Niacin) and B6 are necessary for normal thyroid hormone function production, so any deficiencies in these can affect thyroid function and consequently affect metabolism. B3 is also a component of the glucose tolerance factor which is released every time your blood sugar rises. For additional information on the Research in B vitamins, see the RESEARCH  PAGE.  RETURN TO TOP OF PAGE

Gluconate™ - GLUCURONOLACTONE (glucuronic acid lactone) is a natural metabolite found in the body. Because Glucuronolactone was used as a drug during the Vietnam conflict to supply energy and feelings of well being to soldiers in combat, it was believed widely that Glucuronolactone was developed by the United States Government. Because Glucuronolactone is naturally occurring, this claim is false and no evidence exists to support this claim.

What does it do and what scientific studies give evidence to support this?
Glucuronolactone is a popular ingredient in energy drinks. Most of these drinks contain caffeine, but Glucuronolactone is included because it not only supplies energy, it also increases feelings of well-being.

Glucuronolactone has been clinically proven to reduce sleepiness and sleep-related driving incidents under conditions of afternoon monotonous driving following sleep restriction the night before.1 It is widely known to improve mental performance, reaction time, concentration and memory.2,3,4

Who needs it and what are some symptoms of deficiency? The body manufactures Glucuronolactone naturally and deficiencies are rare. Supplementation can be of benefit to those who want increased energy levels and increased feelings of well-being. How much should be taken? Are there any side effects? Strictly adhere to label instructions. For additional information on the Research in glucuronolactone, see the RESEARCH  PAGE.
