XCAP – Healing Power – True Testimonial

13 06 2012

XCAP Testimonial (by Cassio S. Lopes )

“My mother is a 70 years old lady who passed thorugh a complicated problem recently.
She fell down and injured her shoulder. The rotator cuff was partially hurt and the tendons were almost destroyed with this accident.
Doctors made her do a MRI and detected she had a serious damage to her tendons. They diagnosed her and told she will never get her shoulder heal again.
Doctors recommended her to do 50 physioterapy sessions just to allow her to have shoulder movements partiatilly recovered. If she wanted even better results, she should go under surgery. However, as I told previously, my mother is a 70 year old lady and she is diabetic.

I was taking some XCAP supplements and I thought it would worth a try giving her my supplements. i was informed that there are no problems in administrate those supps to diabetic person.
So, I started giving her Xtra Enzymes, Max EFAs, Natural Mins, Joint Flex and B12 Nitro.

One month later, she told me she did not feel her shoulder aching anymore. Two months after start taking XCAP, she felt completely cured.
She went back to the doctor and told the good news. Doctors did not believe her and asked for another MRI. The MRI showed that her tendons were healed.

That was incredible! As a side effect of the supplments ingestion, her sugar levels almost reutrned to normal, her blood pressure regularized and her iron levels got back to normal.
She gained life quality and is more energetic with better overall health condition.

I would like to thank Doc John to provide me some alternative solutions and to XCAP for making state of the art supplements (and send me them to BRAZIL).

Kind regards,
Cassio S. Lopes ”

XCAP Xtra EnZymes helps Patient Regain Use of Finger!

1 09 2011

Below is a testimonial from Ikelene Boh on her tragic accident and how she almost lost the use of her entire right hand and all her fingers.

We talk about how XCAP is used to help athletes, but our products have other benefits, in particular the XCAP Xtra EnZymes  and how it helps to break down scar tissue.


In Ikelene’s own words…….. (Warning Images are Graphic )

“In April of 2009 I almost lost my life as the result of a household accident. I was home alone when I tripped and fell backwards onto a 12” Tera Cotta pot. The rim snapped and what remained of the pot severed all but one ligament of connective tissue in my right forearm. I used my left had as a tourniquet, and dialed 911 with my nose. The original injury was life-threatening in and of itself , but the measures that were taken to remove the potting soil from the wound left me mangled. 

The next morning I saw the surgeon. He was open about lack of promise that I would ever use the hand again. Over a month passed, and then a twitch in my thumb had me into physical therapy right away. Progress was slow and the nerve pain never subsided.

Three years later I met Dr. John Fitzgerald (Blood Doc).  

I still suffered never-ending nerve pain, but had regained primary use of three of my fingers. 

We had a discussion about XCAP’s systemic enzymes (Xtra EnZymes) that was unrelated to my injury. I began taking the enzymes. 

No more than two weeks later, I sat in amazement as my my forearm twitched and pulsated. By the days end I had full use, mobility, and dexterity in all four fingers, and the nerve pain was diminished by almost half.

I am thrilled that the impetus for taking the enzymes rendered such a far more meaningful result.

Note from XCAP: Blood Doc frequently recommends people with scare tissue break it up by taking 12 to 20 enzymes per day on an empty stomach.

My Secret Fight day regimen revealed – Randy Couture and Gray Maynard

28 08 2010

What supplements do Randy Couture and Gray Maynard take on fight day?

Randy said he sleeps in and takes O2 Plus all day long.  What exactly is all day long you ask?  Randy takes 20, in equally divided doses, throughout the day.

“The O2 Plus makes a noticeable difference in my endurance and since it is derived from vegetable cultures, it digests well.  Additionally, I take about 8 Xtra Enzymes on an empty stomach about an hour before the fight. The Xtra Enzymes help reduce inflammation” said Randy Couture.

Gray Maynard’s routine is very similar to Randy’s.  ” I love the O2 Plus.  I wish it was around when I wrestled for Michigan State!” stated Gray.

Gray went on to say, “I feel this difference every practice when I take the O2 Plus.  It really helps my wind.  I love that it helps so much and is so healthy for me at the same time.  On fight day, Blood Doc John has me increase the amount I take starting at breakfast all the way up to an hour before the fight.”

“I have had a frozen shoulder once before, in my right arm. While I was looking at treatment options, on one of my visits, I saw a surgeon who told me that I would get it in the other shoulder as well… I didn’t believe it until I the right one was about healed and the left started with the symptoms. He was right.”

“I did everything I thought possible to try and fix it, including: physiotherapy, 7 weeks of acupuncture, prolotherapy (injections of vitamins into the shoulder capsule), a cortisone shot (which did nothing), deep tissue massage, bowen treatments, and Laser treatments.”

“If you haven’t had frozen shoulder, I hope you don’t get it…. it’s the most painful, shittiest condition ever. Simple movements are so painfully impossible to do, such as putting on a belt, driving, tattooing (my job), and even playing my guitar!”

“My twin brother Steve, met Dr. John in Las Vegas at a seminar, and on the recommendation of Dr. John, I started taking 40 Xtra EnZymes (from XCAP) per day along with MaxEFA’S, B12 Nitro and Zinc Clutch (all from XCAP).”

“It’s not something that completely heals it over night but as this problem takes almost 2 years for the inflammation to go away, anything that will shorten the healing time is welcome. At the point that I started on the enzymes, I was at about 6 months into the left frozen shoulder.”

“After 6 weeks on the XCAP products, I started noticing a significant reduction in pain. After 2 months there was even less pain. My first frozen shoulder took a year and a half for the pain to go away and almost 22 months to get 90% movement back in the right arm. I am now at 13 months and am starting to do my stretches again. I can skate again with almost no pain… not doing hand plants yet but soon.”

“I FULLY recommend the Xtra EnZymes and MaxEFAs for any chronic joint injury or inflammation. I have been battling this shit for almost 4 years. I wish I had known about these products sooner. Normal medicine prescribed me anti-inflammatories that had really nasty side effects listed on the indications and were no better than Advil. I was eating Advil like candy! The Xtra EnZymes didn’t take the pain away, they took the CAUSE of the pain away. That is what we all want. I wanna say thanks…”

Reduce Recovery time by 50%

18 02 2010

When Randy Couture said that his top 3 supplements he takes are O2 Plus, 4Ever Greens and Xtra Enzymes from XCAP, people wanted to know more about the enzymes and here’s why.

Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to bounce right back after an injury?

Or even after a hard training session?

When we are young we can fall down, get hurt and the next day we’re back to normal.  As adults, it usually doesn’t work that way.  We need much more time to recover.

I remember as a kid going swimming or playing basketball for 5 and 6 hours straight and the next day going and doing it again.  The recovery time was very quick.

Why can’t adults do this?

As we age, enzyme levels become depleted in our tissues.  These enzymes digest inflammatory debris and help circulation, which speeds repair and recovery.

Studies have shown that enzymes speed healing and recovery.

One author after reviewing 14 different studies using over 1,500 subjects said using proteolytic enzymes cut the length of recovery time in half.

Enzymes are indicated for edema, swelling, and acute injury. They have also been used as digestive aids, for low back pain, disc herniation, reduction of food allergy symptoms, acute and chronic sinusitis, increasing the effectiveness of antibiotics, post surgical trauma/recovery, and as a natural way to destroy intestinal worms.

One doctor observed Karate fighters in his book called “Enzymes and Enzyme therapy.”

Ten karate fighters of both sexes were given enzymes before the event. The second group of ten was given a placebo. All 20 athletes had comparable injuries. Here are the impressive results.

Hematomas disappeared in the treated athletes in 6.6 days where placebo athletes took 15.6 days to heal.

The swelling in the enzyme group disappeared in 4.3 days vs. 9.8 days in the control group.

Restrictions in movement as a result of pain and injury disappeared in 5.0 days vs. 12.6 days for the placebo group. When the injuries suffered in the karate competition became inflamed it took 3.6 days to subside vs. 10.6 for the control group.

For the people who were injured and were unfit for work, the enzyme group was able to return to work in 2 days whereas the placebo group was unable to return to work for 5.3 days.

Although this is a small study, it is consistent with all the other studies, which show injuries heal faster, recovery time being reduced to 50% in many cases.

To get these types of results from enzymes, you must learn how to use them right.

First all enzymes are not alike. Sometimes the life or activity of the enzymes has expired before it even gets to the store.

I heard a story about how a formula of enzymes for a major nutraceutical company caused a big stir during manufacturing. The plant manager was happy that the product was so good it was actually warm as it was bottled.

It was so hot that the workers had to wear gloves to handle the tablets.

Little did the manager know that if the tablets were warm, they were spending their enzymatic potential on the raw materials in the tablet. They were actually digesting the tablet. When the product was tested for enzyme activity, there was little to no activity in the tablet six months later.

Contrast that to XCAP’s enzyme product called Xtra EnZymes, which are produced by Biotics Research and have met label claims eight years after the expiration date.

You see enzymes are a whole field unto themselves and certain precautions have to be taken to make sure they are active when you take them.

Some of the reasons people don’t get results with enzymes are poor manufacturing which is common.  This is why you should take enzymes from XCAP.

Taking enzymes with food is another reason.  If you take them with food the enzymes act as digestive enzymes working on the food rather than getting out into your tissues.

For best results, take the enzymes 30 minutes before a meal or 2 hours after eating.

Another reason people don’t get results is that they don’t take enough.

After an injury occurs, Adults should take a loading dose of 10 tablets, take more if your large and you have experience with the product. Then take 5-7 tablets 3 or 4 times per day between meals.

If you are taking enzymes to help with recovery, adults typically take 6 to 8 before practice and another 6 to 8 after practice.

If a patient is anemic I generally don’t use enzymes until the anemia is fixed.

I also take 1 to 2 B12 Nitro’s per day when I am using enzymes to replace folic acid.

One incident really stands out in my mind when it comes to enzymes.  A pro football player received a very bad thigh bruise when he got a direct hit from a helmet.  The next day he could not walk and was not expected to play in the next week’s game.  Now I have seen many bruises, but this was the worst I have seen.  He started taking 40 enzymes in divided doses per day produced by Biotics Research and in 2 days, he was back at practice.  He was so impressed that he continued taking 8 enzymes before and after practice.

I have also known many boxers who load up on enzymes to reduce swelling in their face and basketball players who swear by these enzymes because they say their ankles and knees feel 10 years younger when they use them.

I hope this information benefits you.

Some of the many beneficial studies below:

This double-blind study investigated the use of enzymes in ankle joint injuries. The enzyme group experienced faster reduction of swelling, faster return to joint mobility, and decreased pain during resting or movement as compared to the placebo group. The time during which patients were unable to work or train was significantly shorter (reduced by some 50 %) with enzyme therapy.

Marcel Baumuller, “Therapy of Ankle joint Distortions with Hydrolytic Enzymes; Results of Double-Blind Clinical Trials,” Allgem-einmedizin 19:178-182 (1990).

A preparation containing trypsin and chymotrypsin was tested on professional football players. “Two separately conducted double blind trials have confirmed the value of proteolytic enzyme therapy in resolving inflammation and associated edema and increasing recovery rates. The overall reduction in recovery time is 1. 3 days for hematoma and 2.4 days for sprains – an approximate 27% decrease in recovery time.”

The British Journal of Clinical Practice, September, 1970

This double blind study of patients sustaining sports injuries found considerably less bruising, reduced swelling, a quicker return to function and fitness to resume play in the proteolytic enzyme treated group.

The Use of Proteolytic Enzymes in Sporting Injuries, S.A. Medical Journal l, Feb., 1971

An eight-week, double-blind study of 424 patients. Proteolytic enzymes proved particularly effective in alleviating pain, improving mobility, and reducing soft tissue swelling and muscle stiffness.

Klaus Uffelmann, “Enzyme treatment of soft tissue rheumatism,” from lecture, First International Conference on Systemic Enzyme Therapy. Univ. of Klagenfurt, Klagenfurt, Austria. September 12, 1990.

“The results indicate that enzyme therapy minimizes the edema so frequently seen following hand surgery.” In the group treated with enzymes, 21 of 25 (84%) patients were considered symptom free on the 7th postoperative day. In the placebo treated group only 4 of 29 (14%) were symptom free. This was a randomized, double blind study. Therapeutic Value of Oral Proteolytic Enzymes Following Hand Surgery, Archives of Surgery, January, 1969.

Since orally administered enzymes have very few undesirable side effects, this treatment is suitable for all patients with sciatica due to intervertebral disc herniation. The clinical benefit is presumably due to decrease of inflammatory edema in the nerve root and, in suitable cases, clinical results have been spectacularly good.”

Treatment of Sciatica Due to lntervertebral Disc Herniation, Rheumatology and Physical Medicine, Vol. Xi, No. 1, 1971

A double-blind placebo-controlled trial of 71 individuals with finger fractures found that treatment with proteolytic enzymes significantly improved recovery.

Shaw PC. The use of a trypsin-chymotrypsin formulation in fractures of the hand. Br J Clin Pract. 1969;23:25-26.

A double-blind placebo-controlled study of 44 individuals with sports-related ankle injuries found that treatment with proteolytic enzymes resulted in faster healing and reduced the time away from training by about 50%.

Baumuller M., The application of hydrolytic enzymes in blunt wounds to the soft tissue and distortion of the ankle joint: a double blind clinic al trial (Translated from German). Allgemeinmedizin. 1990;19:178-182.

“Further research has shown that proteolytic enzyme use will: 1) speed up the inflammatory process and bring it to a conclusion; 2) help clean up the waste products in the area; 3) decrease pain and swelling; 4) dissolve any small blood clots floating nearby; 5) improve the supply of nutrients to the tissue, improving circulation; and 6) aid in easing blood flow.”

A Cichoke, Enzymes and Enzyme Therapy, Keats Publishing, p. 182

“Favorable results were obtained in every study, with all

reporting significant improvements in reduction of pain,

swelling, edema, recovery time, period of disability, time

of return to normal activities and leg-raise stiffness (for

low back pain). The amount of time needed to resolve

injuries was halved in most subjects with supplements.”

Randy Couture’s supplements for UFC 109 (very detailed)

5 02 2010

Randy Couture’s supplements for UFC 109

I have gotten a few emails asking how we change Randy’s supplement schedule.

Randy takes quite a bit of supplements to keep him in top form.

For the last 2 training camps we have modified a few things based off what was needed from micronutrient testing.

(Randy has been in 3 back to back to back training camps at age 46.  Most fighters half his age are burned out after 1 training camp, let alone 3 in a row.  This is what we do to keep him going)

Remember, this is extensive because it is an example of what an elite athlete needs to do to keep his body functioning at a top level and slow the over oxidation (aging) that occurs when one is doing an extreme amount of exercise.  I am talking about intense workouts, twice a day for months on end.

He is taking the following things daily from XCAP:

(These are the things he takes regularly)

Vita D – 3 drops

Max EFA’s – 6

B12 Nitro – 3

Joint Flex – 3

Optimum T – 6

Adrenal Glandular – 6 to 9 depending on how he feels

IGF Blast – 6

Natural Mins – 4

O2 Plus + – 6 to 8

Xtra Enzymes – 16

4 Ever Greens – 2 scoops

Whey Isolate – 4 scoops

AA Resveratrol – 6

Below are things that he has added because of the constant training camps.  These were only added after extensive testing.  You don’t need to add these things just because Randy is taking them right now.  The basis of his program is the supplements listed above from XCAP.

We added the following things based on lymphocyte micronutrient, spectox and telomere testing:

(These will be taken up to UFC 109 then stopped.  Randy will be retested before his next training camp and we will decide what to from there.)

Phosphatidylserine – 3  (helps lower cortisol and boost testosterone)

Lipid Sirt – 4  (helps stop cholesterol oxidation)

Super Phosphozyme – 2 (balances calcium ratio)

Alpha Lipoic Acid – 3 (reduces oxidation)

CoQ Zyme – 3 (reduces oxidation in mitochondria)

Selenium -1 (anti-oxidant mineral)

Bio B with C – 1 (specific ratio of B vitamins to bring up a low level)

Iodizyme-HP – 1 (iodine for thyroid support)

Chlorocaps – 2 (chlorophyll to support hormones)

Cytozyme PT/HPT – 6 (Pituitary gland support)

Cytozyme orchic – 3 (testicular gland support)

L-Glutamine powder – ½ scoop (amino acid replacement)

NAC – 3 (production of glutathione)
