Ancient Japanese Secret May Change Your Life (if you’re over 50)

If you’re over 50...

You’re a female, or a male with the problem I’m about to describe...

Or, you just want to help make sure you never have to deal with a painful and debilitating condition an estimated 44 million Americans suffer from...

Then I believe this Japanese secret may be of some interest to you.

While it may not seem like it, Japan is an innovator in medicine.

Both ancient and traditional medicine.

Sadly, most people don’t hold Japan in high regard when it comes to ancient medicine. The main reason is the ancient practices like Indian Ayurvedic medicine as well as Traditional Chinese medicine overshadow Japanese medical practices.

Yet the fact remains, the Japanese have some pretty powerful medicinal tricks up their sleeve.

Frankly, I’m very happy for that.

One of the main Japanese medicinal secrets I’m fascinated with could help make your bones incredibly strong without putting your heart at risk (like some of the mainstream treatments available in Americado).

And all of this is thanks to a peculiar weed they’ve been using for thousands of years called Knotweed.

Knotweed: The Invasive Japanese Weed That May Help Heal Your Heart and Strengthen Your Bones

Never heard of knotweed?

You’re not alone. Most Americans haven’t heard of it - not when it comes to using it as a supplement at least.

Those who have heard of knotweed probably have a negative opinion of it as this invasive weed takes over gardens, the sides of buildings and just won’t go away.

It’s a real pest.

BUT, it’s the kind of pest you can use to your advantage.

The Japanese (as well as the Chinese) have included knotweed in their healing arts because they’ve seen how it many aspects of health it may improve.

Thousands of years ago they would treat sick people with various ailments with knotweed, not clearly understanding what made it so powerful.

Now we know what makes knotweed so powerful, and the main reason I’ve included it in one of my Health As it Ought To Be Supplements, is that it contains high amounts of one of the most powerful antioxidants in the world.

In fact,
knotweed is one of the most potent plant-based sources of resveratrol in the world.

Resveratrol as you probably know, is the antioxidant found in wine (every wine drinker’s favorite antioxidant no doubt), grapes, chocolate and more.

And while wine’s great for resveratrol (which cabernet drinkers love to hear), compared to wine, knotweed is a much better source of resveratrol.

The reason knotweed is superior is instead of delivering the first-stage form of resveratrol, knotweed gives you trans-resveratrol.

And if you want to experience the full effects of resveratrol it’s better to ingest trans-resveratrol.

As Dr. Bill Rawls writes:  “Trans-resveratrol is the chemical form of resveratrol best absorbed and utilized by the body. While red grapes are high in resveratrol, it must be converted into trans-resveratrol in the body. Japanese knotweed contains mostly trans-resveratrol, making it the preferred source.”

Countless studies conclude it’s one of the most potent antioxidants in the world.

Resveratrol supplementation is associated with:

  • Improvements in cardiovascular function
  • Better blood sugar regulation
  • Heightened cognitive function and protection
  • DNA protection
  • Healthy liver function

And many more health boosting qualities.

While all of the reasons listed above are great reasons to take knotweed.

They’re not the main reason I recommend knotweed.

Truth is, I’ve begun recommending knotweed because trans-resveratrol has been shown to work extremely well to preserve and strengthen bones.

Knotweed is One Of My Secret Weapons For Improved Bone Health

Unlike most physicians, I do not recommend calcium for bone support.

If you’d like to see my full reasoning, please visit this article describing why calcium isn’t good for bone health.

Instead, I recommend including vitamin K-2, magnesium, vitamin D-3, boron, and a few other minerals and enzymes.

Knotweed is also part of my arsenal for defeating “bad bones.”

Science shows that resveratrol (and knotweed being high in the best form of resveratrol) is a sturdy pillar for bone health.

In 2005 researchers wanted to see how resveratrol supplementation would affect the bones of rats who’d had their ovaries removed (mimicking what post-menopausal women’s bones might be like).

The study was published in the International Journal of Biomedical Science.

To determine how resveratrol might affect bone health they took 48 female rats fed the same diet for 3 weeks and then divided them into 6 groups.

5 of the rat groups had their ovaries removed and the 6th group had a fake operation.

3 of the groups (including the 6th “fake operation” group) were fed a base diet with slight modifications.

The other 3 groups were administered resveratrol.

Of these, the first group was given 5mg of resveratrol per kg of bodyweight, the next as given 15mg of resveratrol per kg of bodyweight and the last was given 45mg of resveratrol per kg of bodyweight of resveratrol.

All 6 groups were on their respective diets for a total of 90 days.

At the conclusion of the study they found the rats who were given resveratrol had reduced bone turnover and also saw previous bone loss reversed. They also noted the rats who had the highest dose of resveratrol were the ones to experience the highest benefits.

This is why they later concluded resveratrol is a helpful therapeutic option for preventive bone loss.

Then in a human trial the results were repeated.
In a study published in the The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism it was shown that men who took high doses of standard resveratrol benefited from increased mineralization of bone.

The study was the gold standard in scientific research; a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial assessing changes in bone turnover markers and bone mineral density.

In the study, 74 men whose ages averaged around 50 years were asked to take either 1,000 mg of resveratrol, 150 mg of resveratrol or a placebo for 16 weeks.

66 men completed the study, and at the end the researchers discovered it was the men who took the most resveratrol who received the most benefit.

Keep in mind all these bone boosting benefits came from standard resveratrol, not trans-resveratrol which is the better form of resveratrol.

Get Knotweed In My Calcium Free Bone Support

 If it’s not obvious, I’m somewhat infatuated with knotweed. 

Which is why I was happy to hear knotweed is becoming a popular food choice among master chefs.

I don’t recommend growing knotweed as it will take over any space you grow.

But if you want it, I’ve included a high-strength dose in my Calcium Free Bone Support.

Calcium Free Bone Support is my precise blend of 7 vitamins, minerals, enzymes and knotweed I give my patients to help strengthen bones.

It’s absolutely brilliant at healing people from the inside out.
