Coffee with Dr. Stewart: Episode 12

Podcast Show Date: 12-05-2014

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Welcome to Coffee with Dr. Stewart. This show will provide our listeners with up to date medical information from a leading neurotologist and neuro-immune specialist. With Dr. Stewart’s broad medical knowledge, we will discuss how he helps his patients with issues such as ADD, migraines, hormones, dizziness, sleep, fatigue, methylation, autism, and genetic mutations. I am your host Kara Stewart-Mullens and I invite you to sit back, grab your cup of coffee or favorite beverage and let’s have Coffee with Dr. Stewart.

Welcome everyone to Coffee with Dr. Stewart. I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday during this holiday season. I know I had a great Thanksgiving with my family. My big brother Dr. Kendal Stewart unfortunately was up in the mountains. Hey Dr. Stewart.

Dr. Stewart: Yeah, that was me.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: (laughing) We missed you around the Thanksgiving table.

Dr. Stewart: Yep, I missed y’all too.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah we missed the kids and everything, but I heard you had a good time.

Dr. Stewart: We did. We had an awesome time.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: You didn’t break your neck on the slopes?

Dr. Stewart: No. No, no, no. Chasing kids around.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Did you yard sale it with the skis?

Dr. Stewart: Not me. Chasing kids.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Well we are down to our last two shows in 2014. Brings a little tear to my eye because I’m pretty proud. We’ve made it through 11 episodes. We’ve had some amazing feedback. This is episode 12. We’ve got 12 and 13 to go and then we’re going to wrap for 2014, but let me tell you what we’re going to talk about today.

We’re going to talk about nutritional therapy and then talk about some of the formulas that you’ve created for our line.

Dr. Stewart: Okay.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: So a lot of people may or may not know this, Dr. Stewart is the lead formulator for Neurobiologix going on six years now. They asked him six years ago to design a couple of products and then he just never stopped.

Dr. Stewart: Right.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: We get a lot of emails and calls on a regular basis. On particular episodes we talk about certain formulas and now these people want to know; “is that the right formula for me?” Okay?

Dr. Stewart: Right.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: We answer it to the best of our knowledge, but I think coming straight from your mouth, as the creator of the product and you used it in your clinics, that you’ll give us a better understanding. So let’s start off with quality.

Dr. Stewart: Okay.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Okay? It’s very important. I know a lot about this just because I work with the chemists directly.

Dr. Stewart: Sure.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: There’s a lot of synthetics in a lot of products out there.

Dr. Stewart: Correct.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: We keep those out of our line because we’re pharmaceutical grade. We’re GMP, which we’ll get into that later. Dr. Stewart, tell us why synthetics don’t work well with the body.

Dr. Stewart: Simply the fact that it’s synthetic is the problem.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: What does synthetic mean?

Dr. Stewart: What synthetic means is that it’s not typically naturally occurring in the body and that it has a different chemical structure.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Okay.

Dr. Stewart: Okay? So even though it may have an affinity for a receptor or for a function in the body, it really isn’t the natural molecule that’s made for that specific function.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Okay.

Dr. Stewart: Okay? So drugs, in particular, are…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Synthetic?

Dr. Stewart: Synthetics are chemicals that are not the natural component that the body uses, but have effects that are similar to that natural component or a lot of times, a more powerful or more…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: I’ve always heard that the body has to work so much harder to get synthetics through the body. Is that true?

Dr. Stewart: It’s not really to get it through the…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: But when we’re talking about nutrition?

Dr. Stewart: You see the body has a natural way of delivering a molecule, whether it’s a hormone or whether it’s a neurotransmitter and then degrading that molecule or getting rid of it and then freeing up the receptor itself again.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Okay.

Dr. Stewart: So the body has been programmed perfectly, of course I believe by the good Lord.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah.

Dr. Stewart: We have set it up to degrade and to synthesize these natural elements in a perfect fashion. Synthetics, however, are made to mimic those, but a lot of times we’ll have more trouble degrading them, more trouble clearing them, and more trouble reversing them at the natural function. A perfect example would be amphetamines.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Okay.

Dr. Stewart: Okay? So the problem with an amphetamine is it will make you feel high, alert and function a whole lot better but the problem is the way it actually affects the body. You then start to get addicted to it…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Ah…

Dr. Stewart: And you have to have it and your body gets used to this new state of function…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Okay.

Dr. Stewart: And it becomes the new norm and basically you’re stuck on it.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah. I’ve talked to some nutritionists and they talk about fillers in nutritional products, you know…

Dr. Stewart: Sure.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: They use cork, they use shellac, the stuff I put on my nails, you know…

Dr. Stewart: Sure.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: And a lot of supplement companies out there that aren’t being watched by the FDA that are on our shelves and how does the body get rid of that stuff? Does it stack up?

Dr. Stewart: Well the answer is highly variable, depending on the person.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah.

Dr. Stewart: We have these natural genetically programmed clearing agents or clearing systems. We call them the detoxification systems and they are highly variable from one person to the next. So something that may be perfectly tolerable for one person is very, very difficult for another person to actually clear and get rid of.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: And it can cause side effects?

Dr. Stewart: Certainly can. In fact, people with methylation deficiencies, which we have talked about a lot in this show, typically have really great problems clearing chemical toxins…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Okay.

Dr. Stewart: Because of their production or their deficiency in producing glutathione.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah and I guess I want to get this point across. When I’m talking to somebody, about products, education is the biggest piece. Good manufacturing practices, that’s called GMP, it’s kind of an AKA for pharmaceutical grade, which our product line or company, makes sure that we are and anybody can kind of put that on their label if they want to, if the FDA doesn’t catch them.

Dr. Stewart: Right.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: But the truth comes down to the point where you have to get with your manufacturers and make sure that they’re providing clean nutrition and that’s what I hope we provide.

Dr. Stewart: Yeah really the basis of CGMP or GMP is that we essentially have a lot of these products of nutritional nature coming from outside the country.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah.

Dr. Stewart: Many of them from Asia and clearly the Asian suppliers can be quite suspect in certain situations.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah.

Dr. Stewart: So the quality of pharmaceutical grade supplementation in manufacturers is that they have actually approached the FDA to ask what qualifications, what safeguards do we need to make in order to comply with what you would dictate, should you decide to take over the industry.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: And then the FDA goes in and surveys them and makes sure that they’re following…

Dr. Stewart: That’s correct.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: And I’ve heard of companies getting like 12 page letters because they did not have everything up to standards.

Dr. Stewart: That’s correct. So the manufacturers live in fear that the FDA will actually oversee…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah. One day.

Dr. Stewart: The supplementation industry and the whole idea is these manufacturers obviously don’t want to go out of business. So what they do is they comply and what they typically do is very, very simple. They take each batch of raw, nutritional product and they have to…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Test it.

Dr. Stewart: They test it for purity and it has to meet…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Efficacy.

Dr. Stewart: Purity standards and efficacy standards and then if it passes that regimen, it’s then introduced into the product and utilized. Then after the product is made, where we combine different agents or we put them together, then they have to pull off every so often, maybe every 50th or 100th bottle and assay it for purity also…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah.

Dr. Stewart: To make sure there haven’t been any type of chemical changes.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: The one thing I like about our company is with your testing suite that you have. Of course we work through all the steps with the manufacturer, I’ve gone down to the plants, I’ve sat with the chemists, I’ve walked through the plants…

Dr. Stewart: Sure.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: In the white garb and head net and everything and then we bring that batch back and we test it on some patients in your office.

Dr. Stewart: Right.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: And that’s how we know the truth, if it’s really going to work.

Dr. Stewart: The biggest thing is that when you deal with CGMP or pharmaceutical grade, there’s a dictum that really comes down from the FDA oversight that you can only report the absorbable amount on the label. So if you go down to Walgreens or somewhere like that and you just get an off-the-counter supplement, sometimes it will say 500 milligrams of calcium on it…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah.

Dr. Stewart: But you may only absorb 50 milligrams.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: I know. That’s always baffled me.

Dr. Stewart: With CGMP we’re looking at efficacy. We can only report what’s absorbable. So you and I both know that we fuss with the chemists a lot. You know, like this is how much we want delivered and the chemist says; “Well I can’t do that, we’d have to put this much in there to get that.”

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah.

Dr. Stewart: Essentially, we have to spend a lot of time formulating any type of new formula. Making sure that the chemists agree that we use the best quality, we use things that don’t interact, and that we use things that actually belong together.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: That’s your biochemical background.

Dr. Stewart: That’s the biochemistry of it. It’s a lot more difficult than you think, you know…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Oh I could never do that. I’m a supplement expert now, but then I look at the formulas and I don’t know what goes together. That’s your job for all of us.

Dr. Stewart: Well it’s actually my job and my job to talk to the chemists because I actually do speak some chemistry. So…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: A lot of it.

Dr. Stewart: Yeah and so the whole idea is that I can understand what the heck they’re talking about even when they’re talking in their jargon.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah.

Dr. Stewart: And so there’s…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Tell us a little bit about your biochemical background because it’s hard to make these formulas work.

Dr. Stewart: Well you’re going to be maybe a little bit surprised, but basically biochemistry is something that all doctors take during medical school, and you’re supposed to have some in college, too. Now, when I was at the University of Texas, I decided that I was going to graduate early and…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: And you graduated in three years, right?

Dr. Stewart: Yes. What I decided to do is take a summer course in biochemistry and the only summer course in biochemistry that was available was the one for pharmacists.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Ah.

Dr. Stewart: What happened is I got introduced to not only a very hard biochemistry course and I started as a chemistry major…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah.

Dr. Stewart: Then transferred over to biology just because it was easier…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Makes sense.

Dr. Stewart: But what happened is, they were really taught functional biochemistry, meaning biochemistry related to drugs. I got a very unique perspective on what biochemistry really meant from a drug physiology perspective.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Okay.

Dr. Stewart: Instead of just straight biochemistry from some, you know, please forgive me, professors, but geeks…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah.

Dr. Stewart: Who are just interested in their little area of research. So that kind of lit my biochemical fire and then when we get to medical school, I did a lot of training in biochemistry to a certain degree and most doctors hate it. I mean to say the least…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah.

Dr. Stewart: And they just forget it as fast as they remember it…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: They remember it? Kind of like me and algebra?

Dr. Stewart: They’d be hard pressed to admit it, but they certainly don’t do that now. What happened though, was that when I realized that all these genetics were involved in biochemistry, I had to go back and spend a lot of time re-educating myself on a lot of biochemical pathways…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah.

Dr. Stewart: Because, whether we like it or not, biochemistry is the physiologic foundation of the body.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: What’s interesting is when the company was founded six years ago and we got some formulas that were already pre-designed and then you would use them for something totally different, like a high blood pressure supplement you used for neurotransmitter support…

Dr. Stewart: Correct.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: And it was baffling, but we just fit the name to what you were using it for and it worked.

Dr. Stewart: Well it’s because the biochemistry doesn’t ever lie.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah.

Dr. Stewart: It never fails that I’ll be lecturing on biochemical and genetic pathways and I’ll have some doctor in the back raise their hand and say; “Where are your double blind placebo studies that tell us….” and I…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: And they talk like this (talking differently)?

Dr. Stewart: And they talk like that and so basically what I have to say is, Listen, doctor, you’ve really confused what I’m saying. This is not a drug study.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah.

Dr. Stewart: We are talking about straight biochemistry here. So you need to go home and get your biochemistry book out and open it up. You can just start reading on what I’m talking about.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: When you’re talking about the biochemical pathways, and the way it’s passed down through the body…

Dr. Stewart: Right. The body makes certain substances transition to other substances, transition to others and you can use it in multiple different facets.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah. You always say sometimes; “one vitamin doesn’t work alone.” I’ve had people come ask me; “What does he mean by that?”

Dr. Stewart: Yeah basically God is very beautiful in His design. He’s not going to use one vitamin for one thing. He’s going to use one vitamin for 50 things.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Ah. I gotcha, but then also you’re…

Dr. Stewart: It’s kind of like a recipe.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Okay.

Dr. Stewart: How many recipes can you make with sugar, Kara?

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah, you asked me that before and I got tricked (laughing).

Dr. Stewart: Yeah. The answer is thousands. Okay?

Kara Stewart-Mullens: I said…yeah.

Dr. Stewart: So the whole idea is methylfolate, for instance, can be used in what we know of right now, 250 different biochemical…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: But it requires a co-factor.

Dr. Stewart: But it requires other co-factors to make it work…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Like B-12?

Dr. Stewart: That’s correct.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Okay.

Dr. Stewart: But God makes recipes…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Okay.

Dr. Stewart: He does not make one vitamin.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Now I understand. One vitamin doesn’t drive alone; it takes the other ones to work together.

Dr. Stewart: That’s correct.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Okay. That makes sense to me. I think we covered the quality that at least the show’s sponsor Neurobiologix, what we try and achieve and when we get back, we’re going to talk about the products now.

Dr. Stewart: Okay.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: That Dr. Stewart’s designed. We’ve got 14 in the line that you’ve designed for us.

Dr. Stewart: Okay.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: And they’re very interesting and I use quite a few of them and I know a lot of people that do. So we will be right back with Coffee with Dr. Stewart.

Commercial Break:

Kara Stewart-Mullens: No two people are the same. Our health issues and our nutritional needs are as unique as our smiles. That’s why our mission at Neurobiologix is simple. Provide quality nutrition that changes lives, one formula at a time. Developed through a collaboration with top U.S. physicians, each Neurobiologix formula carefully targets specific health issues.

Speaker 1: I can’t tell you how much supplementation has helped our family. Being able to put back in their bodies what they were missing, we had dramatic results. We had focus in school; we had children that were able to sleep through the night. We had children that had their moods regulated.

Dr. Stewart: What we’re interested more in Neurobiologix is replenishing the insufficiencies that the body has in order to recover the underlying problem and reestablish the nervous system and immune system to normal function.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Each of us is unique, shouldn’t your supplement be too? Neurobiologix. We are changing lives one formula at a time.

Kara Stewart-Mullens:

All right welcome back everybody to episode 12 of Coffee with Dr. Stewart. I’m your host Kara Stewart-Mullens and of course, Dr. Stewart. How are you again?

Dr. Stewart: I’m doing great.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: I always ask you that when we come back from break. I don’t know why.

Dr. Stewart: That’s okay.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Hey, how you doing?

Dr. Stewart: As I’m trying to swallow my coffee.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Sorry, as he spits all over the mic (laughing). Anyways, we’ve been talking about quality of nutrition and kind of the guidelines that Neurobiologix goes by, Dr. Stewart’s biochemical background, because you have to know what you’re doing to make these formulas. A lot of people out there will buy, let’s say, zinc, calcium, vitamin D, all these individual bottles. The next thing you know, you look at your counter and there’s like 15 or 16 bottles that you’re trying to take a day.

Dr. Stewart: Sure.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: It becomes a little overwhelming. So Dr. Stewart’s really good at putting formulas together for particular conditions. So to make my job a little easier, now I can send this stuff off to people if they have a question about a particular product.

Dr. Stewart: Right.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Now there are videos by you on these products on our website, but let’s talk about the methylation products.

Dr. Stewart: Okay.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: The core of our line, kind of how we started. I mean you’ve been a methylation expert for ten years now, preaching it, that you cannot have good health without a proper methylation pathway.

Dr. Stewart: Right. The concept of all the designs is pretty simple. Back when my daughter, Courtney, your niece, was four, she decided to go to a party. Sherry was busy and she asked me if I could help her bake a birthday cake. So what I did is I walked over to the pantry, opened up the door, grabbed the cake mix, brought it back…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Out of the box.

Dr. Stewart: Dumped it in a bowl, put eggs and milk in it, stirred it up and baked a cake. Then it hit me that that’s exactly how supplementation should be.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Okay.

Dr. Stewart: Here’s the problem in the industry. You and I both know that if we were only in the industry to try to sell as much product as we can, we’d have everything separate because…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Oh yeah.

Dr. Stewart: The cost of the products, it’s mostly in the packaging.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: When I came on board as CEO and we sat down with you and some of the other people that are involved with Neurobiologix, that was what you kind of had to convince them of, you know…

Dr. Stewart: Right.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: That this has to be put together to make these formulas work or we’re not going to survive.

Dr. Stewart: Right. We really knew that we wanted to hit a boutique area which is basically put everything together and make it easy for the patient because…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yep. And cost effective.

Dr. Stewart: Right, and cost effective. It’s almost like at Neurobiologix we created an advocacy type of environment for the patient. Which means we put everything that belonged together and there are a few people that can’t take certain things that are in certain formulas…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah.

Dr. Stewart: So that creates some conflict for the patient.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah.

Dr. Stewart: But, in general, it actually works out best for those patients because they’re always asking how much of this, how much of this, how much of this, how much of this…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: And they’re confused…

Dr. Stewart: Right.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: And they’re spending a ton of money. It is kind of weird with the business plan going oh you know what? We’re not going to sell as many bottles, but we’re going to have a lot of return.

Dr. Stewart: Correct.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: You know?

Dr. Stewart: The whole idea is that what you got to understand about people who have methylation issues that I explain to people, is I’ll have people show up in my office every single day and, new patients, and they’ll have a list of 20 to 30 supplements they are taking.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Gosh.

Dr. Stewart: The first thing I notice is that there’s no methylation support and I say; “well you know what, that just is very expensive pee you have.”

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Ah.

Dr. Stewart: Okay?

Kara Stewart-Mullens: It’s probably bright yellow.

Dr. Stewart: Yes. The reason that is true is because methylation itself is not just involved in delivering the proper vitamins to the body’s cells, but it’s also involved in what we call growth factors that deliver nutritional elements.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Okay. That makes sense.

Dr. Stewart: You know, deliver cholesterols, deliver fats, deliver proteins, deliver minerals to the cells and they’re a growth factor specific to every type of cell, whether it’s a bone or whether it’s a tissue or whether it’s a fibroblast or anything else. What we’re doing is we have specific growth factors that need methylation support to deliver all this nutritional extra that you’re putting in your body.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: That’s why you created the Neuro-Immune Stabilizer Cream, which is a methylation cream. Now we have a sublingual, which is a different delivery, but achieves the same thing.

Dr. Stewart: Basically the problem is, is that it never made sense to me why would our body only absorb B-12 and folic acid and then convert it internally? Because other organisms make methylated forms, why aren’t we just absorbing it from our guts. Well the answer is, in my mind, is that the liver does not really care for methylated forms very well.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Okay.

Dr. Stewart: It’s because methylated forms, many neuro-toxins are things that what actually potentially get into the nervous system or the brain would be methylated because they’re fat soluble. And so I believe that the liver actually tends to clear things that are methylated when it comes from the gut.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: When it’s taken orally?

Dr. Stewart: Not to say that I’m absolutely 100% correct, but what I will tell you is that we did not see a clinical effect in oral consumption of these supplements, as opposed to an injectable or transdermal…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: And you’re talking about the methylation products?

Dr. Stewart: Talking about the methylation products.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah because I knew that you had a lot of good results with the injections because that’s going right into the blood stream.

Dr. Stewart: Correct.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: So the cream was the next best thing if you can’t get a prescription.

Dr. Stewart: Yeah or sublingual. The cream is one of my favorites; I love it because it’s just a beautiful way to deliver these fat-soluble vitamins. You and I both know how hard it was to make.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Oh gosh, yes.

Dr. Stewart: What I tell people is; “dudes don’t like lotions.”

Kara Stewart-Mullens: My six-year-old didn’t like lotions and he loves…

Dr. Stewart: That’s right.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: The sublingual now.

Dr. Stewart: Eventually we knew that we had to go to some other form to get a lot of these young boys and guys to buy into…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Especially teenagers going off to college and stuff. Their parents are like how am I going to get them to remember to rub on a cream?

Dr. Stewart: They won’t.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: But you can put a pill in their pocket and they’ll remember.

Dr. Stewart: I hate to say it, but even 50 and 60-year-old guys don’t like to do that.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah. And the hairy issue.

Dr. Stewart: Sure.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: You want to do some where there is less hair…

Dr. Stewart: We eventually made a sublingual because it bypasses the liver and gets introduced into the blood stream.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: But both have methylated B-6, B-12, and folic acid.

Dr. Stewart: And two types of…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Bioactive forms.

Dr. Stewart: Yeah so bioactive forms, so they have methyltetrahydrofolate, they have folinic acid, which is formal tetrahydrofolate, they have methyl B-12, hydroxo B-12, and also P5P.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Which is B-6.

Dr. Stewart: Which is B-6.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: And all those together, they’re co-factors.

Dr. Stewart: Yes and the ratios matter.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah.

Dr. Stewart: The way we actually built those was to have the appropriate ratios together. What I tell people is if I’m baking cookies and I dump way too much flour in it…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: It doesn’t do well.

Dr. Stewart: Then if I don’t add the other ingredients, then I’ve got cookies that don’t do well. The whole idea is when you start explaining it that way, you can take too much of one thing. So if you take too much methyl B-12, it can interrupt the ability of the methylfolate to work properly.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: That makes perfect sense. I’m glad you finally said that because that is hard to tell some people because they go; “Oh my gosh, there’s really not that much P5P,” or “there’s really not much methyl B-12.” Well you’re the chemist, so you know why it’s not too much.

Dr. Stewart: Well it’s not too much because what happens with a lot of these people is they’re not taking GMP products so they’re looking at what’s on the label and assuming they’re absorbing it.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Oh like 200 milligrams, but maybe only getting 50?

Dr. Stewart: Maybe even getting 20.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Twenty? And then you have to take out the extraction in the liver up to 30%...

Dr. Stewart: Right. So the whole idea is…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: You’re swallowing orally.

Dr. Stewart: Don’t get fooled by labels. Okay?

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Good point.

Dr. Stewart: So the reason the CGMP world, when people turn our products over and they go; “oh, there’s just not as much in this there’s a lot more in this other product.” Well the answer is no, that’s absorbable which means that if I put 200 on the label, there’s probably 500 in the product.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Wow. Okay. Let’s go to the speed round here.

Dr. Stewart: Okay.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Okay? Methylation’s kind of the core of our line. If you’re not methylating, some of these products, and other nutritional products you’re taking, may not work as well, but they’re going to work better if you start methylating.

Dr. Stewart: Correct.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: So you usually start people off with a sublingual, the Methylation Complete or the Neuro-Immune Stabilizer Cream.

Dr. Stewart: Correct.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: The next one that you made for us about six months ago was Full Focus.

Dr. Stewart: Right.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Very, very popular item because ADD, ADHD and mood.

Dr. Stewart: Yeah. So Full Focus is based on the concept of basically having what’s called methyl donors and the methyl donors that typically people know about are choline, inositol, methionine, trimethylglycine, co-factors like that. What they typically do is they make dopamine break down faster.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Okay.

Dr. Stewart: What I mean by that is dopamine is about how fast you not only trigger the dopamine receptor, but also how fast you clear it….

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Okay.

Dr. Stewart: And be able to provide another dopamine so you can transition…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: That’s what keeps you focused.

Dr. Stewart: That’s right. Now it also has green coffee bean extract and…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Which I love.

Dr. Stewart: Many people get shocked about that, but green coffee bean does not have a whole lot of caffeine. It basically…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Not until it’s roasted.

Dr. Stewart: It’s roasted that produces all the caffeine that’s…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: So we got it in the extract. I always tell people it’s pressed out of the beans in the raw form.

Dr. Stewart: Right. What it does have is a very high level of what’s called chlorogenic acid and chlorogenic acid has been proven in some clinic studies to augment the dopaminergic system of the brain. So it actually provides better functionality for the dopamine receptor.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: I’m just telling you from memory, like me and my office manager Cathy were talking about just after taking the product, our memory of things we didn’t even know an actor’s name that we’ve never seen the movie of…

Dr. Stewart: Sure.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: But probably heard it in random passing…

Dr. Stewart: Right.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: What is that? I mean the cognitive performance; it just seems to go through the roof.

Dr. Stewart: It’s just the way it’s built and we had Advanced Neurotransmitter before that…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: And we still do.

Dr. Stewart: And we still do and it was good, but when you start throwing that green coffee bean extract in there…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: You have…

Dr. Stewart: What’s happening is you can’t sit still in biochemistry. There’s always new information coming out and so if you keep up with what’s going on, you’ll find out that maybe, and you and I know, I’ll say, Kara, I think we need to…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: You drive me bananas sometimes. We need to change this.

Dr. Stewart: I need to augment this formula and we don’t stay stagnant. You’ll see that we do redesign…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah that’s a good thing. I just joke that he drives me crazy with that but things have to evolve with time.

Dr. Stewart: Sure.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: We figure out what works better, we get a test batch and then we change the formula a little bit. People wonder why I want to keep the old formula, but…

Dr. Stewart: Right.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: The new one usually is so much better.

Dr. Stewart: What’s really a great thing is watching Full Focus and how much better it typically works than Advanced Neurotransmitter, but that’s not true for everybody.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah.

Dr. Stewart: It’s really true for women, for sure.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yes.

Dr. Stewart: It’s one of the few supplements…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: I know the days I do not take it.

Dr. Stewart: It’s one of the few supplements I’ve designed where women tend to like it a whole lot better for some reason.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Really?

Dr. Stewart: Guys were pretty happy with Advanced Neurotransmitter and they don’t know…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah. I feel that it lasts longer than Advanced Neurotransmitter.

Dr. Stewart: Probably.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Well okay. Let’s get onto the next one; Neuro-Immune Infection Control.

Dr. Stewart: Neuro-Immune Infection Control is, instead of…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: What’s it for?

Dr. Stewart: Basically it is for helping the body with natural agents to control all types of infection; viruses, yeast, bacteria, and fungus. Instead of buying a specific agent for each one of those, you are buying one product that has all the components in it.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Okay. What about Glutathione Topical?

Dr. Stewart: Glutathione is a very important molecule to the body. It’s the only thing that can clear chemical toxins, it’s a major anti-inflammatory, and it’s actually a chemical signaling agent between cells…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: And it’s on the pathway, methylation.

Dr. Stewart: And when your methylation is weak, you have very little glutathione. So when you apply it, it helps inflammation, it helps clear toxins, it helps cells signal better and helps people feel better.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: And it’s a nice cream that you can rub on.

Dr. Stewart: That’s correct.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Okay. To another cream, Calming Cream

Dr. Stewart: Calming Cream is when you have methylation in place, there are specific precursors, we mean amino acids that are designed to help you make specific neurotransmitters. So we’ve got tyrosine to make dopamine, 5HTP to make serotonin, theanine to help GABA and we even have some GABA in there…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: And what does it do though? Calms you…

Dr. Stewart: Basically what that does is helps you calm your limbic system, which is your emotional center.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Okay.

Dr. Stewart: Which is based on the serotonin and GABA…

Kara Stewart-Mullens: That’s why it works so well for me.

Dr. Stewart: And dopamine essentially helps your processor. So we know that helping your brain function better will calm you too.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Yeah and I always put it on like 20 to 30 minutes before bed because…

Dr. Stewart: Correct.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: I’ve got brain spinning. I keep thinking about the same…

Dr. Stewart: Sure.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Things over and over again.

Dr. Stewart: Yeah. You and I both have that; you know that.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: It calms me down. I was so blessed when this product came out. Okay. Well let’s just recap really quickly because we’re about out of time. Look for CGMP if you’re looking at supplement companies or brands because if they do not know what that term means or it’s not on their label, I would probably consider hanging up the phone or not taking a…

Dr. Stewart: Right.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: Hard look at that product. Look for natural sources when you’re looking at ingredients. Stay away from the synthetics; they’re a lot harder to process through the body. Look for combinations or co-factors for certain ingredients, no fillers, and look at the other ingredients. If there’s a lot in there, that’s probably not a good thing on the other ingredients list.

Dr. Stewart: Correct.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: So thank you everyone for joining us. We are out of time. Dr. Stewart, I appreciate you taking time out….

Dr. Stewart: Your welcome.

Kara Stewart-Mullens: With all your wisdom and I hope everybody has a blessed and wonderful Sunday.
