Boost Your Immune System's Superpowers with Our BCPlus Immunity Blend

In today's health-conscious world, boosting immunity has become a top priority for individuals of all ages. The combination of turmeric, ginger, black pepper and beta-caryophyllene is a powerful and natural way to enhance immune function.

Our new BCPlus Immunity Blend capsules have been strategically crafted by Dr. Blair and our team of herbal experts. Inside each capsule is a proprietary combination and quantity of several research-backed ingredients that provide digestive support, protect against cellular damage, and reduce oxidative stress due to chronic inflammation.

How does this help your body?

Increased protection and rejuvenation support! Oxidative stress is an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in your body. Free radicals are oxygen-containing molecules with an uneven number of electrons. Antioxidants are molecules that can donate an electron to a free radical without making themselves unstable. This causes the free radical to stabilize and become less reactive.

Our water-soluble nano BCP powder is blended together with the physician formulated, proprietary Immunity Blend and pressed into a vegetarian, enteric-coated capsule which increases bioavailability by creating a delayed release. Thanks to this process, ingredients make it through the stomach to the small intestine or other stages in digestion to be metabolized.

Turmeric, with its active compound curcumin, is renowned for its immune boosting, anti-inflammatory properties. Since BCP is a natural terpene found in various plants, it complements this effect by interacting with the body's endocannabinoid system, potentially reducing inflammation. The addition of black pepper enhances curcumin absorption, making the effects even more potent.

What's in our physician-formulated BCPlus Immunity Blend?

beta-caryophyllene molecule

Beta-caryophyllene (BCP)

Beta-caryophyllene ( BCP) is a natural substance that is found in many common food plants, such as hops, cloves, black pepper, oregano, cinnamon, rosemary and basil. Beta- caryophyllene is FDA-approved as a food additive.


Our beta-caryophyllene blends are derived from hops, cloves or allspice. Everyone can use these physician-formulated CBD alternatives to help relieve, protect, and heal without risky side effects.


We used a proprietary, state- of -the art technological process to have our base liquid of BCP 91% concentration (that all of our BCPlus products start with) - dehydrated and turned into a water-soluble nano particle that can be combined with other herbal healing ingredients and placed into a capsule for an easily absorbed, sustainable, consistently measured dose that supports immune systems.


Turmeric roots and powder medicinal herb

Tumeric

Known as the “spice of life”, turmeric has been used in curry spice blends and as a healing herb for thousands of years in India and throughout Asia. In recent years, there has been a bounty of scientific research supporting its strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits, which in turn has made it a popular ingredient in anti-aging and skincare regimens.

  • Turmeric, a plant in the ginger family, is native to Southeast Asia and is grown commercially in that region, primarily in India. Its rhizome (underground stem) is used as a culinary spice and traditional medicine.

  • Historically, turmeric was used in Ayurveda and other traditional Indian medical systems, as well as Eastern Asian medical systems such as traditional Chinese medicine. In India, it was traditionally used for disorders of the skin, upper respiratory tract, joints, and digestive system.

  • Turmeric is a common spice and a major ingredient in curry powder. Curcumin is a major component of turmeric, and the activities of turmeric are commonly attributed to curcuminoids (curcumin and closely related substances). Curcumin gives turmeric its yellow color.

What is curcumin?

Curcumin is a bright yellow chemical produced by plants of the Curcuma longa species. It is the principal curcuminoid of turmeric, a member of the ginger family. Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. These compounds are called curcuminoids.


Curcumin is poorly absorbed into your bloodstream. In order to experience the full effects of curcumin, its bioavailability (the rate at which your body absorbs a substance) needs to improve. It helps to consume it with black pepper, which contains piperine. Piperine is a natural substance that enhances the absorption of curcumin. In fact, the best curcumin supplements contain piperine, and this makes them substantially more effective.

Piperine from black pepper

Long hailed as the “king of spices,” black pepper is a staple seasoning in many households around the globe. Its distinct flavor is due to the presence of piperine, a compound that has been linked to a long list of health benefits. Because most of us only enjoy a dash or two of black pepper with each meal, some people opt to take a piperine supplement to boost their intake.


Piperine is an alkaloid present in black pepper (Piper nigrum), one of the most widely used spices, in long pepper (Piper longum), and other Piper species fruits belonging to the family of Piperaceae. Piperine is responsible for black pepper's distinct biting quality. Piperine has been shown to increase the absorption of several nutrients and beneficial plant compounds. Studies show that piperine can increase the absorption of curcumin by up to 2,000%.


ginger root plant medicinal herb

Ginger

Ginger is a flowering plant whose rhizome, ginger root or ginger, is widely used as a spice and a folk medicine. Native to parts of Asia, such as China, Japan, and India, ginger has a leafy stem and yellowish-green flowers. The spice comes from the rhizome (underground stem) of the plant.

  • Ginger has been used for medicinal purposes in China for more than 2,500 years, and it has had a prominent role in Chinese, Indian, and Japanese medicine since the 1500s.

  • It’s been used to aid digestion, reduce nausea, and help fight the flu and common cold, to name a few of its purposes. The unique fragrance and flavor of ginger come from its natural oils, the most important of which is gingerol. Gingerol is the main bioactive compound in ginger. It’s responsible for many of ginger’s medicinal properties.

  • Gingerol has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, according to research. For instance, it may help reduce oxidative stress, which results from having too many free radicals in the body.

Ginger’s antimicrobial properties could make it useful for fighting bacterial and fungal infections.


Experience the amazing benefits of blending these powerful herbal compounds together

Curcumin, the active compound in turmeric, and terpenes like Beta-Caryophyllene (BCP) both have demonstrated interactions with the endocannabinoid system. Curcumin influences the endocannabinoid system by regulating the activity of endocannabinoids and their receptors, particularly CB1 and CB2 receptors, which are crucial components of this system. These interactions play a role in modulating various physiological processes, including inflammation, pain perception, and immune response.


Both BCP and Turmeric are associated with strengthening the immune system. Their combined effects, enhanced by black pepper, can help your body better defend against infections and illnesses.

  • Combating Harmful Inflammation

Turmeric is perhaps the strongest, natural anti-inflammatory nutrient on earth. Research reveals this powerhouse compound can offer protection at the molecular level – perhaps even matching the effectiveness of some commonly used anti-inflammatories without their related side effects.


Studies have suggested that Turmeric and BCP may support heart health by reducing inflammation, improving blood circulation, and maintaining healthy cholesterol levels. Black pepper's piperine helps maximize curcumin's heart-healthy effects.


  • Supporting the Immune System

Both BCP and Turmeric are associated with strengthening the immune system. Their combined effects, enhanced by black pepper, can help your body better defend against infections and illnesses. Many people take turmeric and ginger at the first sign of sickness, hoping to enhance immune function and sidestep cold or flu symptoms.

Some research shows that ginger, in particular, may possess powerful immune-boosting properties.


  • Relieving Every Day Joint Aches and Pains

In several studies, turmeric was shown to relieve pain as effectively as a popular pain reliever while reducing stiffness and improving overall joint function.


The combination of BCP and Turmeric, with the help of black pepper's piperine, may provide natural pain relief, making it a valuable option for individuals dealing with chronic pain, arthritis, or other discomforts.


  • Protecting Against Cognitive Decline

A recent landmark study found that turmeric promotes the production of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), a growth hormone responsible for youthful brain function.

According to scientists, higher BDNF levels may hold the key to improved memory and sharper thinking as you age.*


What’s more, a recent study found that daily turmeric intake produced short-term memory improvements in adults over 60 who were predisposed to memory loss. It worked like a six-hour memory boost!*


Some research suggests that 6-shogaol and 6-gingerol — compounds in ginger — may help prevent degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis.

Oxidative stress and chronic inflammation may be key drivers of Alzheimer’s disease and age-related cognitive decline.


BCP has shown promise in supporting cognitive function. When combined with Turmeric, enhanced by black pepper's piperine, it may help enhance memory, focus, and overall brain health.


  • Brighter, Healthier Skin

Turmeric has been shown to inhibit a key enzyme that can reduce elastin formation in the body.** Elastin, in tandem with collagen, is skin’s main structural protein responsible for smooth, plump, supple skin.


The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of Turmeric, along with the potential skin-supporting effects of BCP, and the enhanced bioavailability from black pepper's piperine, can contribute to healthier, more youthful-looking skin.


  • Increase the antioxidant capacity of the body

Free radicals tend to react with important organic substances, such as fatty acids, proteins, or DNA. The main reason antioxidants are so beneficial is that they protect your body from free radicals. Curcumin is a potent antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals due to its chemical structure.


Due to its unique ability to bind with CB2 receptors, Beta-caryophyllene has potent anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties.


  • Digestive Support

Turmeric and ginger have both been traditionally used to aid digestion. Turmeric's anti-inflammatory properties, along with the digestive benefits of ginger, can provide a robust support system for gut health. Additionally, BCP, with the assistance of black pepper's piperine, may further contribute to reducing inflammation in the gut, potentially improving overall digestive health.


Understanding the science behind enteric-coated capsules

Enteric coating is a specialized technique used to protect the active ingredients in our BCPlus Immunity Blend capsules from stomach acid, allowing them to reach the intestines intact for better absorption.


Benefits of enteric-coated capsules:

  • Enhanced Bioavailability: Enteric coatings protect the active ingredients from the harsh acidic environment of the stomach, ensuring they remain intact until they reach the more alkaline environment of the small intestine. This leads to improved bioavailability and better absorption of the active compounds.

  • Reduced Gastric Irritation: Enteric-coated capsules can be gentler on the stomach, reducing the risk of gastrointestinal discomfort or irritation that can occur when certain supplements are taken on an empty stomach.

  • Time-Release Effect: Enteric coatings can be designed to release the active ingredients slowly over time, providing a sustained and controlled release of the beneficial compounds for longer-lasting effects.

  • Protection of Sensitive Ingredients: Certain ingredients, including probiotics and enzymes, are sensitive to stomach acid. Enteric coatings help protect these ingredients until they reach the intestines, where they can exert their effects.


The combination of BCP, turmeric, ginger, and black pepper offers a natural and holistic approach to improving health and well-being, supported by scientific research.
