by Scientific Medical Devices Inc. (SMDI)
Scientific Medical Devices has established itself as one of the leading suppliers of Meeker Raspberry Seed products. Raspberries contain one of the most powerful antioxidants known - a series of ellagitannins that are converted into ellagic acid in the body. Raspberry ellagitannins are one of very few fruits that have been clinically shown to be transformed into beneficial levels of ellagic acid in the body. The ellagitannin content in the seeds is much higher than in the fruit.
The ellagitannin content of red raspberry seeds varies dramatically with the variety of the berry. The highest levels of ellagitannins are found in the Meeker variety of raspberry seed. SMDI processes the seed into maximum bioavailable flour, which frees the ellagitannins for immediate adsorption and transformation into ellagic acid in your body.
SMDI's Meeker Variety Raspberry Seed products contain the highest amount of ellagitannins available in nature. There has been much research into ellagic acid, its value as a potential antioxidant and cancer fighting supplement. Ellagic acid has been found to inhibit the promotion and progression of certain types of cancer. Many pet owners are feeding the Raspex Raspberry Seed Powder to their pets. They are experiencing dramatic tumor reduction, and maintaining the quality of their pets lives.
SMDI is proud to deliver its line of skin care made with the Meeker Variety Raspberry Seed Extract. These cosmetic products were developed by one of the world's leading skin biophysicists, resulting in some of the most effective skin restoration and preservation products on the market today. SMDI has improved the process further with the production of a concentrated Meeker Raspberry Extract from the flour. The concentrated extracts are used in the production of Raspex Skin Gel and the full line of cosmaceuticals listed on the web site.
The manufacturer states:
"Yes, we are aware of the irony that anticancer products are formulated with toxic preservatives. However, it should be noted that the primary ingredient is Meeker Raspberry Extract and that every ingredient has a reason for being there. The addition of a minute amount of preservative is not considered harmful.
There are reports in circulation that have linked parabens to possible carcinogenic and estrogenic effects. These studies were done using approximately 25,000 times more parabens than is used in our and other cosmetics. There is no evidence that any cosmetics or lotions containing minute amounts of parabens pose a health risk, because of the low doses involved. Parabens are unlikely to penetrate into your tissues, remain intact and accumulate there. The cosmetics industry believes that parabens along with other cosmetic ingredients are safe based upon their long term usage and safety record based on recent scientific studies.
At levels 25,000 times of the application dose everything becomes harmful. Any food ingredient at that dosage (common salt, for example) becomes harmful at these levels."
The manufacturer chooses the lower price preservatives over the ideal pure product. So there you have it, conflicting information exists everywhere. Will the raspberry heal your cancer? Will the parabens cause more of it? Our user feedback suggests that a little bit of preservatives is possibly not too bad.
