                                                                                        Profibe – How Does It Work?

August 6, 2008 by HealthSense

ProFibe is a water-soluble fiber product containing guar gum and citrus pectin. Clinical studies have shown that Cerburg Profibe effectively aids diet and exercise in lowering cholesterol levels and in breaking down soft arterial plaque. Zocor and Lipitor, generically known as simvastatin and atorvastatin respectively, are HMG-CoA (3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A) reductase inhibitors, which are known lipid-lowering agents.

Fiber has long been recognized as important to health promotion and disease prevention. Various health organizations, like the American Heart Association, are recommending increased fiber in the diet especially for those at risk of heart disease, those with gastrointestinal problems and diabetes. Water-soluble fibers like gums, mucilages, pectins, and algal polysaccharides such as those derived from seaweeds have looser physical structures giving them greater water-holding capacity.

ProFibe being a water-soluble fiber can:

  1. Delay gastric emptying. Increased retention time of food in the stomach means an earlier sense of fullness, helping to prevent overeating.
  2. Increase intestinal transit time. Absorption of food takes place in the intestine. Increased transit time means food passes quickly and there would be less time for food to be absorbed, particularly preventing much fat to be absorbed.
  3. Slow glucose absorption. Excess glucose in the bloodstream that are not utilized for energy needs are known to be stored as fats in the body.
  4. Be fermented in the colon into short-chain fatty acids that may inhibit liver cholesterol synthesis and help clear LDL cholesterol. The fatty acids are also believed to be responsible in interfering with adhesive property of plaque resulting in dissolution of blockage caused by arteriosclerosis.
  5. Bind bile acids and cholesterol, resulting in increased excretion.

If you suffer from high cholesterol, you are at risk of heart diseases, check out Profibe now to learn how to reduce cholesterol levels in a natural and safe way.

What ProFibe Can do for you?
The recommended three servings per day of ProFibe™
can provide as much beneficial water-soluble fiber
as a bushel of apples, a dozen oranges, or a bucket of
oatmeal. ProFibe™ accomplishes this by complexing
its components into a powder that the body can use 100
percent. Each 10.4 gram serving of ProFibe™ contains
a minimum 6 grams of water-soluble fiber, something
you cannot get from a single serving of fruit or other

What Is ProFibe™?
Developed by a gastroenterologist and a chemist at
the University of Florida, ProFibe™ is a water-soluble
fiber formula consisting of three elements: 1)guar gum;
2) unmodified citrus pectin; and 3) non-GMO soy
It’s all in the complexing. While there is nothing
remarkable about these three natural products by
themselves, ProFibe™ uses a patented complexing
process that transforms them into a powerful engine
for reducing cholesterol levels by as much as 25 to 30
percent in one month.
Other benefits may include a reduction in
atherosclerosis; better digestion; improved glucose
tolerance; weight loss and lowered blood pressure.
In addition, many ProFibe™ users report enhanced
energy levels—all without expensive medications and
their potential side effects.

The Science behind ProFibe

In 1993, James J. Cerda, M.D.,   (Gastroenterologist,
Paul Dudley award winner,  Ret. Rear Admiral) and
Charles Burgin, after researching the effects of watersoluble
fiber  (WSF) for nearly two decades, discovered
that by complexing a protein to the fiber they could
prevent it from leaching out and becoming slimy or
sticky.  This discovery meant that people could easily
consume the quantity of WSF necessary to lower LDL
ProFibe™ uses unmodified citrus (not grapefruit)
pectin and guar gum as its water-soluble fiber source.
The citrus pectin is extracted using the same method
used to extract protein from soybeans. The sugars, oils,
and bioflavonoids are removed.
This synergy between a natural fiber product such as
ProFibe™ and a synthetic pharmaceutical has enabled
thousands of people to lower their cholesterol to the
point where they are able—with their physician’s advice
and at their direction---to reduce their dosage of statin
drugs significantly or eliminate them altogether.

How Does ProFibe™ Do What It Does?
Our researchers discovered that by complexing the
WSF to a natural protein, such as soy, the body is able
to utilize 100 percent of the fiber intake. Bacteria in the
large intestine break down the WSF into short-chain
fatty acids, which is believed to lower LDL cholesterol
and to interfere with the adhesion of plaque to arterial
walls, thus reducing blockage.
Moreover, one of the well-known characteristics of
water-soluble fiber is that it inhibits glucose absorption
(think oatmeal), slowing down the absorption of sugar
and a corresponding rise in insulin production, which
can lead to cravings for yet more sugar and starches.
ProFibe™ helps you get off this treadmill, control your
blood sugar and increase your cardiovascular health.

It Worked for Them

The people profiled here—and thousands like them—have
achieved remarkable results using ProFibe™ to lower
their LDL cholesterol and reduce atherosclerosis, with no
side effects.
I’ve been taking ProFibe™ since July 1997, and it’s been
a lifesaver. I’m a 65-year old, 180-lb  male with a family
history of heart disease. For exercise, I try to walk five
times per week.
In July 1998 after chest pains a scan showed  plaque in
the arteries. On a scale of one to five, I was a four.
On an angiogram in February 2002 the doc found that I
had no plaque in my arteries. The people in the testing room
could hardly believe it. They said I had the arteries of an 18
year old, and that whatever you’re doing—keep doing it!
The only thing in my life I’ve changed is taking ProFibe™,
after reading an article in USA Today in 1997. It doesn’t
happen overnight, but it sure was worth the wait.
It’s for sure I’ll be taking ProFibe™ for the rest of my life.
Thanks for great research and for making this product.

“After being on ProFibe™ for three months, my cholesterol
has fallen from 243 to 188. Thank you so much for your
  L.M.H., Belton, TX
I started using ProFibe™ in September 2007 when my
total cholesterol was 191.  I recently (2/08) tested and my
total dropped to 161. I have to believe ProFibe™ played
a big role in producing such good numbers.  Thanks for
a great product.

Clinical Study Proved ProFibe

In 1994-1995, Cerda and Burgin conducted human
studies that enabled them document the extraordinary
benefits of three servings of ProFibe™ per day.  Fasting
cholesterol tests were taken on subjects at the beginning
of the study. Subjects then received three servings per
day of ProFibe™ for 30 days.
The result: An average 30 percent reduction in
LDLcholesterol levels without a change in diet or lifestyle.
In 1994, Cerda and Burgin documented the efficacy
of WSF in regressing arterial soft plaque in an article
published in Clinical Cardiology (“Grapefruit Pectin
Inhibits Hypercholesterolemia and Atherosclerosis in
Miniature Swine,” 11.595-600, 1998).
More than a decade after ProFibe’s introduction to the
market, this original research continues to be validated
over and over.
For Stubborn Cholesterols,
the Added Boost of ProFibe™

Made the Difference:
A 53-year-old Caucasian female taking 10mg of Zocor
per day. Total cholesterol was 249, LDL-C was 158, and
triglycerides were 198. After 30 days of three servings
of ProFibe™ per day, along with 10mg of Zocor, the
following results were observed: Total cholesterol: 216;
LDL-C: 134; Triglycerides: 130; The subject’s risk factor
also improved from 3.1 to 2.4 in just 30 days.
A 61-year-old Caucasian female with a recent history
of CAD was taking 20mg of Mevacor per day. Total
cholesterol was 301; LDL-C was 141. After only 14 days of
taking three servings of ProFibe™ per day, together with
Mevacor, total cholesterol dropped to 214, while LDL-C
was reduced to 84. Risk factor dropped from 4.7 to 3.2.
These kinds of results are why people
worldwide are discovering that they
can enjoy better health and a
reduced chance of cardiovascular illness
by using safe, all-natural ProFibe™.

I cannot thank you enough for ProFibe™.  My wife first
learned about it in Jean Carper’s book, Miracle Cures. 
She shared it with me not long after my heart attack in
2000 (I am now 59 years old).  It has been a great help
in lowering my cholesterol.  So, although I cannot thank
you enough, here is a start:  THANK YOU!
 Rev M, OH
I have been using ProFibe™ for about a year in order to
lower total cholesterol and eliminate Lipitor.  The results
have been excellent.

I had problem with one of my eye and I decided to clean
the vasel in my body so it possibly could help with my vision.
I learn you need to be consistant and take profibe regularly
for many months 3 times a day with milk, orange juice and...
I help myself with stoping and improving my vision.
Ted Jec.

Jean Carper, leading authority on health and nutrition,
columnist for USA WEEKEND and best-selling author,
highlights the positive effects of ProFibe™ in her book Miracle
Cures stating that “It seems to be almost an instant super cure
for high cholesterol in many people...”
Robert Kowalski, author of  The 8-Week Cholesterol Cure
and  The New 8-Week Cholesterol Cure is also known for
recommending ProFibe™ as “the only practical and good
alternative to whole foods for reducing cholesterol.”

A long story husband’s Cardiologist
expressed concern regarding my husband’s high TC so
my husband told his Dr. that he would go on ProFibe™. 
The Doctor stated that it would do no good, etc.  
My husband took ProFibe™ ...never missed a day.  The
next check up his cholesterol was 178.  His Cardiologist
refused to listen to anything about ProFibe™.  One of the
nurses asked how to purchase ProFibe™ as her husband
was fighting a losing battle with cholesterol.  The next
time we talked to her, she expressed her gratitude for
our making her aware of your product....her husband’s
cholesterol was under control.  She had, obviously,
made the Cardiologist aware of her husband’s progress
with ProFibe™. 
Some time later, we overheard the Dr. ask his assistant
if she had ordered his case of ProFibe™.  We looked at
each other and winked and smiled.  (Some people have
to learn the hard way).

Medical researchers have known for years that water-soluble fibers (WSF) can reduce cholesterol.

The trick was to "package" such fibers in a form patients could, and would, take.

The slimy, sticky pure form of these fibers is not very appetizing, and people would have to eat enormous amounts of fruits or other foods daily to get beneficial amounts. Even in dry form, the effective amounts would require taking dozens of pills each day.

So Dr. James Cerda, a specialist in gastroenterology and nutrition in the University of Florida College of Medicine, and retired UF chemist Charles Burgin invented ProFibe(TM), a tasteless powder mixture of citrus pectin, guar gum and soy protein that can be mixed into drinks and sprinkled on foods.

Clinical studies by Cerda at the Clinical Research Center of Shands Hospital at UF found that adding 15 grams of grapefruit (citrus) pectin to the daily diet reduced cholesterol levels by an average of 11 percent within four weeks.

ProFibe(TM) can be used in conjunction with diet and exercise to naturally reduce moderately high cholesterol, and in conjunction with cholesterol-lowering medicine to control severe cases.

"This is not a medicine," says Cerda. "It is a natural blend of water-soluble fiber, and it lacks the side effects that sometimes occur with cholesterol-lowering drugs."

Today, CerBurg, the company Cerda and Burgin founded, is selling about 120,000 cans of ProFibe(TM) a year from its South Daytona Beach, Fla. headquarters. Typical monthly use is about three cans at an average of $29.00 per can. UF holds the patent on ProFibe(TM) and has licensed it exclusively to CerBurg.

CerBurg President and CEO Al Burgin, Charles Burgin's son, says the fact that ProFibe(TM) was developed at a major university using rigorous scientific protocols lends it great credibility in the marketplace.

"We've based everything we say about ProFibe(TM) on the research conducted at the university," Al Burgin says. "We don't want to be thought of as some snake oil salesmen."

Indeed, Burgin says, initial results from a study of ProFibe(TM) users indicates the formula is actually exceeding expectations compared to the clinical studies.

"We've had five of 40 subjects tested, and three of the five had noticeable regression in arterial plaque," Burgin says. "The other two didn't show any regression, but they also didn't show any progression, so the ProFibe(TM) seems to be keeping things in check."

Al Burgin calls CerBurg a "virtual" company. All of the manufacturing and distribution is contracted out, keeping costs low. Burgin says CerBurg buys the highest-quality raw materials available and closely monitors manufacturing at a plant in the Midwest.

"The way we are currently structured, we pay only for services rendered by the companies we contract with under non-disclosure agreements," Burgin says. "If we were vertically or horizontally integrated in production, we would not only have to invest millions initially, but would incur the operational expenses associated with ownership of plants and equipment."

ProFibe(TM) is sold via mail order, in health food stores, by request through Publix pharmacies and at selected Kmart, Target, and GNC stores. Burgin says people who are considering trying ProFibe(TM) are advised to discuss it with their doctor.

"Compared to what they hear about drugs, doctors receive very little nutritional training in medical school, so they are often skeptical about natural, nutritional approaches to health," Burgin says. "Our approach is to sell physicians on ProFibe(TM) through their patients. If they see good numbers from patients using ProFibe(TM), they may prescribe it for other patients."

Look around you.  Count the number of people you can see as you read this.  Now imagine half of them gone.  Statistically, nearly half the population will die of heart disease or a cardiovascular related illness nearly one in two!  If you are married, the odds are that one of you will succumb to this killer.

A significant factor in heart disease and related conditions such as high blood pressure and stroke is artheriosclerosis (clogging of the arteries by accumulated LDL [low-density  lipoprotein the "bad cholesterol"]  in the form of plaque).  Several factors contribute to cholesterol levels: smoking, exercise, diet, stress, and heredity.

Studies show that every 1 percent drop in blood cholesterol results in a 2 percent drop in your risk of heart disease.  This is wonderful news but without an effective, inexpensive, safe way to drop blood cholesterol levels and to repair the damage already done this news is possibly useless.
The ProFibe Answer

Fortunately, there is an effective, inexpensive, safe way to lower blood cholesterol. It's called ProFibe and it's been changing people's health, and their lives, for many years.

ProFibe is a water-soluble fiber supplement containing guar gum and citrus pectin.  These water soluble fibers are complexed to soy protein to increase palatability and functionality. ProFibe is a tasteless powder, which is mixed into prepared foods or blended into beverages.  It is approved under the FDA’s G.R.A.S. (Generally Recognized as Safe) ruling and accepted by the joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives.  Since it is a constituent of all plants, soluble fiber has long been part of the human diet.  National and international food regulations recognize that water-soluble fibers are valuable foods and can reduce the risk of heart disease.

     The Astounding Results of ProFibe

ProFibe can reduce cholesterol levels up to 25-30 percent for most users in as little as a month in some cases, a drop of more than 50 points!  That's good news for preventing future artheriosclerosis but that's not all!

ProFibe has also been shown to reduce existing arteriosclerosis (soft plaque) by one third or more plaque that is clinging to the arterial walls, preventing the free flow of blood, actually reduces and begins to disappear. Moreover, ulceration of the arterial walls, caused by the damaging plaque, heals.

Many people have been able, under the supervision of their physicians, to discontinue taking cholesterol reducing prescription medications because the results they've obtained with ProFibe have been so promising.  Many prescription cholesterol reducers have significant side effects.  ProFibe not only greatly improves these patients' cardiovascular health, but reduces their risk of developing other potentially serious health problems as well.

ProFibe! A simple step towards reducing an important risk factor for heart disease!

What is ProFibe?

ProFibe is a uniquely manufactured, water soluble fiber (WSF) product. ProFibe has been clinically demonstrated to be an effective adjunct to diet and exercise for reducing cholesterol levels and reducing soft arterial plaque. ProFibe is approved under the FDA G.R.A.S. ruling (Generally Recognized As Safe) and accepted by W.H.O. (World Health Organization).

Why reduce cholesterol?

A high cholesterol level, especially the type known as Low Density Lipid cholesterol (LDL) has been identified as a major risk factor for heart disease. To some extent, cholesterol levels are determined by heredity. However, most people can lower high cholesterol levels by attention to diet, exercise, and sufficient daily intake of fiber.

Why Fiber?

Most health authorities, including the American Heart Association and Federal Government agencies concerned with health, now recommend increasing fiber in the daily diet. This is especially important for people at risk for heart disease. Fiber has long demonstrated its effectiveness in reducing cholesterol. However, most people in developed countries have a difficult time consuming the amounts of fruits, vegetables and whole grain needed to obtain optimal amounts of fiber in their daily diet.

Why Water Soluble Fiber?

For years researchers have known that water soluble fiber (WSF) could dramatically reduce cholesterol levels. While all fiber is useful, WSF has proven itself most effective. Water Soluble Fiber includes substances such as guar gum, locust bean, and citrus pectin.

How is ProFibe different from fiber products I may now be using?

Most fiber products recommended for ‘regularity’ contain psyllium husk, which is an insoluble fiber. Similarly, oat bran, while a healthful product, is not 100% water soluble fiber. Clinical studies have found ProFibe, which contains only water soluble fibers (WSF) to be as effective for most people as prescription medication such as Mevacor and Zocor, for example.

Why don’t we use more Water Soluble Fiber?

Although water soluble fiber (WSF) is highly effective in reducing cholesterol levels, it would be difficult to eat the enormous amounts of apples, grapefruit or similar foods each day needed for sufficient amounts. In their "pure" or isolated form, water soluble fiber products are slimy and sticky, and most people will not consume the amounts needed for optimal results. In dry form, as pills, the effective amounts would require taking dozens of pills each day, a costly and inconvenient regimen

What is special about ProFibe?

ProFibe is made from guar gum and citrus pectin. Each serving of ProFibe contains the citrus pectin of two whole grapefruit -- rinds and all! After years of experimentation, we at CerBurg developed a manufacturing process to complex water soluble fiber (guar gum and citrus pectin) with a protein, such as egg white or soy. This process offers a unique product that can be easily taken each day in a palatable drink.

What are some of the advantages of ProFibe?

Our unique manufacturing process offers two benefits to the user. First, ProFibe is a flavorless drink that most people tolerate well. Second, our unique manufacturing technique insures a 100% utilization of the water soluble fiber.

Why use ProFibe?

Heart disease is the leading killer of both men and women in the United States today. As a cause of death, it leads cancer, AIDS, homicide and accidents, COMBINED ! Your chance of dying from cardiovascular disease is one in two or 50% !
Some risk factors for heart disease (such as heredity) cannot be changed. Fortunately, we can modify other risk factors, such as smoking, diet and exercise, by our own actions. Some authorities believe we could reduce deaths from heart disease by up to 80% by modifying these ‘voluntary’ risk factors.

One important risk factor for heart disease is cholesterol level. If your doctor has told you that your cholesterol level is high, diet and exercise can help. For many people, however, diet and exercise are not enough.

Each percentage point drop in cholesterol levels is associated with a decreased risk of heart disease. Clinical studies on human patients, as well as animal studies have shown ProFibe can help lower cholesterol levels, an important heart disease risk factor.

If I use ProFibe, can I forget about diet, exercise and other risk factors?

Definitely not! ProFibe is a valuable addition to a total program of a healthy diet, regular moderate exercise, blood pressure control, stress management, and elimination of smoking and excessive drinking. This is a program for you to develop with your health-care provider. ProFibe can add to the effectiveness of this program by helping you to reduce cholesterol.

Are there any side effects when taking ProFibe?

Water soluble fibers may create flatulence. ProFibe is to be gradually introduced into your daily routine to reduce the gas produced. Individual results vary.

Try ProFibe for just one month.

ProFibe helps most people lower cholesterol, an important risk factor for heart disease. The best way to see if ProFibe will work for you is to try it for just one month. Ask your physician to order a fasting cholesterol screening.
Then take ProFibe, as directed, for four weeks (includes one week gradual incorporation). Finally, ask your physician for a second fasting cholesterol screening. This will be your best demonstration as to the value of ProFibe for you. If you are on prescription medication do not discontinue. ProFibe channels differently than drugs. After a period of time (60 days) you may be able to reduce the dosage or completely eliminate the prescription medication. Be sure to consult your health care provider.

How do I use ProFibe?

ProFibe is provided in a convenient 454 gm container, containing a one (level) tablespoon scoop. Each can contains 44 servings. Take one half scoop initially (WSF’s may produce flatulence) with a 10-12 oz. ( 300 - 350 ml ) glass of liquid such as water, apple, grape or cranberry juice, skim or soy milk, Crystal Light, Gatorade, etc.. Stir vigorously or shake well before drinking. Gradually increase your intake of ProFibe over the next several days to reach one scoop, three times per day, preferably with meals.

May I take my entire daily ration of ProFibe at once?

Our customers report best results when ProFibe is taken three times a day in equally divided doses. Three scoops a day, that’s the key!

What if I am taking a cholesterol lowering drug?

If you are taking a prescription medication such as Lovastatin, Mevacor, Zocor, Questran or Pravachol, you may find that ProFibe further lowers your cholesterol. Continue your medication as prescribed by your physician. If you are taking a drug such as Lopid, to lower triglycerides (another blood lipid), these levels may also drop.
IMPORTANT: Under no circumstances stop taking any prescribed medication except under the supervision of your physician. Many people find they can reduce their drug intake when used in conjunction with ProFibe, but this is a decision to be made with your physician. See Conjunctive Guidelines.

Functionality of ProFibe

     Water soluble fibers (guar gum, citrus pectin, locust beans, etc.) are very viscous, slimy and sticky in their natural state. It would be virtually impossible to consume therapeutic doses (15 gms/day) of these fibers. What our researchers figured out was how to reduce the viscosity, slimy stickiness of WSF by complexing it to a protein (egg white, soy, etc.). Through the complexing of WSF to protein we were able to improve the actual functionality (benefit) of WSF by increasing the utilization of the WSF by the body. This is accomplished by enzymes from the pancreas digesting the protein in the small intestines, releasing the WSF. The WSF passes into the large intestine where 100% of the fiber is utilized. Bacteria in the large bowel breakdown the WSF into short chain fatty acids. It is the fatty acids we believe are responsible for lowering LDL-C and interfere with the adhesive characteristics of plaque promoting regression of artheriosclerosis (blockage). The flatulence (gas) one experiences is created by the bacterial action in the large intestine. The amount of flatulence can be effected by diet as well. Bean-O (3-5 drops) in your ProFibe may eliminate the flatulence. Lessening of flatulence should occur over time but again remember diet plays a part too.
Side benefits which may be achieved by taking WSF (ProFibe):

 improved GI motility (transit time, etc.)
improved glucose tolerance (diabetics)
 reduced prostates (men)
 improved dental check-ups
due to improved vascular system
improved blood pressure
due to improved circulation to renal artery
male libido
We at CerBurg firmly believe we are just beginning to discover the benefit of WSF to humanity. As we go forward with our artheriosclerosis regression studies we will learn even more about the benefits associated with water soluble fibers (ProFibe).

Profibe and Eye Problem:

ProFibe Studies Performed on 70-Year-Old Male

Dear Dr. Cerda and Mr. Burgin:

Mr. S.L. Garrett experienced visual transient ischemic attack symptoms in left eye in December of 1994 and subsequent carotid ultrasound examination in December of 1994 demonstrated moderate focal hard and soft plaquing of the left common carotid artery with small area of ulceration change in the central portion of the plaquing and this is felt to account for patient’s visual transient ischemic attack symptoms in left eye.  The degree of stenosis was a little more than 40% narrowing of the left common carotid artery.  Patient had mild plaquing and minimal narrowing otherwise in left internal and external carotid arteries in the bulb and of the right common carotid artery and right internal and external carotid arteries at the bifurcation.  Patient subsequently under went arteriography in December of 1994 which confirmed and correlated one-to-one the ultrasound findings of the left common carotid artery just beneath the bifurcation with demonstration of small ulceration change in the area of moderate plaquing  with approximately 40% stenosis narrowing of the left common carotid artery in this area. 

Patient subsequently started on a ProFibe regime January of 1995 and continued though to present, the end of May 1996, with repeat ultrasound of the carotid arteries performed 5-28-96 demonstrating improvement from the 1994 examination with previous ulceration changes no longer identified and also of important note, there is diminished component of plaquing of the left common carotid artery in the area previously with only 20 to 25% relative narrowing stenosis currently and with smooth margins of plaquing which has relatively flattened configuration compared to prior examination.  The left internal and external carotid artery beyond the bifurcation along the carotid bulb on the left, as well as right internal carotid artery bulb and internal carotid artery and external c! arotid a rtery just passed the bifurcation remaining relatively clear.  There is demonstration of excellent flow through the carotid arteries bilaterally currently.  This significant improvement of the left carotid since 1994 is felt directly attributable to the ProFibe regime.

The Best Kept Secret to Silencing the Killer Within

By Sheri Robbins


It’s a scary fact ¾ many of us have a killer lurking within. 


That killer has a name ¾ PLAQUE.  The simple word plaque may not sound deadly, but its components of elevated cholesterol, fatty substances and other deposits may cause blockage known as atherosclerosis.  When combined with high blood pressure, poor diet and smoking, this blockage becomes even more dangerous. The build up of plaque, which may become unstable and rupture, can form a blood clot which has the debilitating ability to totally block the blood’s flow through an artery.  This can result in a heart attack or stroke, two of the top three leading killers in America as indicated by the National Center for Health Statistics. 


Fortunately, the growing popularity of integrative medicine into medical practices is paving the way for safe, natural and effective solutions to what can be fatal problems.  More and more, both the patient and health care provider are seeking solutions to medical problems which do not bring about additional difficulties, such as the ever present side effects so commonly found in many prescription drugs. As an example of this modern day trend, the American Heart Association cited one study conducted in Toronto which determined that out of 308 patients interviewed, 45 percent used complementary or alternative medicines.


Incorporating various methodologies with the conventional western approach of medicine has been something Jan Radzik, MD, is extremely familiar with and believes in wholeheartedly.  Radzik, a member of the Oregon Medical Association, American Academy of Family Physicians and a Founding Diplomat of the American Board of Holistic Medicine, serves as doctor for the Oregon Center for Integrative Medicine.  He has conducted years of research into the reduction and reversal of calcified plaque, the silent killer.  His studies have documented extraordinarily successful results for heart disease reversal and decalcification of plaque by as much as 46 percent to 93 percent in as little as 7½ to 12 months. 


One of the primary ingredients to his tried and true wellness program for treatment of coronary heart disease and carotid artery stenosis reversal is water soluble fiber (WSF), found in the pectin of grapefruit and other citrus fruits.  Over two decades ago, studies at the University of Florida proved that citrus pectin, when combined with guar gum and complexed to a non-GMO (non-genetically modified organism) soy protein result in a WSF supplement which is 100 percent usable by the body.  This led to the development of the patented, award-winning formula which is found in the natural supplement ¾ ProFibe.

Why WSF and why ProFibe™?  Soluble fiber has been recognized for its ability to lower total cholesterol and LDL-C (bad cholesterol) therefore reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke.  In addition, soluble




fiber regulates blood sugar which is a plus for people suffering from diabetes.  Robert Kowalski, author of The 8-Week Cholesterol Cure and The NEW 8-Week Cholesterol Cure can attest to the benefits of soluble fiber.  Kowalski, a medical journalist at the time, was on a personal mission to find the best possible ways to care for his heart after he had suffered a heart attack at the age of 35 and by the age of 41 had undergone two coronary bypass surgeries.  Known for starting the soluble fiber movement with oat bran, Kowalski is also known for recommending ProFibe™ as “the only practical and good alternative to whole foods for reducing cholesterol.” 


Additional studies performed at the University of Florida determined that ProFibe™ can reduce cholesterol levels by 331/3 percent in as little as one month and can reduce existing soft plaque by one-third or more.  The integration of ProFibe™ into an existing treatment of niacin or cholesterol lowering medication, such as statin drugs, has successfully resulted in the decrease or elimination of the need for medication.  Typically, optimal benefits are achieved after 30 days of three servings a day.


Dr. Radzik, a devoted advocate of ProFibe™, has been using the natural supplement in his Oregon practice since it was first introduced to the market over ten years ago.  “I love this product.  It’s viable, safe, has no side effects and takes care of lots of issues that plague today’s society,” stated Radzik.  His patients suffering from diabetes have experienced outstanding results using ProFibe™ in conjunction with a proper diet, exercise and certain nutrients. 


Jean Carper, leading authority on health and nutrition, columnist for USA WEEKEND and best-selling author, highlights the positive effects of ProFibe™ in her book Miracle Cures stating that “It seems to be almost an instant super cure for high cholesterol in many people ….”


This “super cure” does not channel through the liver, but instead is broken down into short-chain fatty acids in the large bowel by bacteria.  Initially, this bacterial action may result in flatulence, but should subside with time.  The quickest and easiest way to reduce this inconvenient symptom is simply by controlling diet and drinking the recommended daily dose of water.  When compared to the risk of liver damage and to the other side effects found in many prescription drugs used to reduce cholesterol, ProFibe™ offers the least risk. 


Speaking of risk, if you are taking other medications, there is no cause for worry of grapefruit interference.  Although ProFibe™ creators, Dr. James Cerda and Mr. Charles Burgin, used grapefruit pectin in their initial formula they changed course.  Due to the possibility that grapefruit and grapefruit juice could interfere with the absorption of certain medications, they decided to use purified pectin derived from other citrus fruits such as lemons and limes.  This decision removed concerns regarding medication absorption.


Not only is ProFibe™ safe and proven effective, it is easy to use.  Three servings a day are recommended for optimal benefits.  This provides as much beneficial wsf as a bucket of oatmeal, a dozen oranges, or a bushel of apples!  Yet you cannot receive the same healthy benefits from fruit alone or other supplements on the market.  It is virtually tasteless when the powder is mixed with liquids. 


Be prepared for significant results when you add ProFibe™ to a lifestyle that includes exercise, proper diet, and appropriate health care.  ProFibe™ may be called a “super cure,” but it works best in a well-rounded and medically approved way of life.  As with any medical lifestyle change, it is recommended that your physician be consulted prior to use.  Also, check with CerBurg for details to discuss with your physician before stopping prescribed cholesterol-lowering medications.


ProFibe™ ¾ the best kept secret to silencing the killer within.  Now that is a secret worth sharing!

 Please carefully READ labels for instructions before opening ProFibe.  Only unopened containers/boxes will be accepted for refund less S&H within 30 days.  Ship unopened product for return to CerBurg, 2040 S. Ridgewood Avenue, So. Daytona FL  32119-2241.  Please include order name, address and phone number to expedite refund.     


    It’s important to your success to use ProFibe properly

        For best results using ProFibe, follow a recommended plan of diet and exercise. Do not stop taking any prescribed cholesterol lowering medication until after the benefits of ProFibe have been seen and only under the supervision of your physician.  CerBurg recommends a fasting baseline blood cholesterol profile within 30 days before initiating the use of ProFibe, and follow-up profiles periodically thereafter to chart your progress.  Best results are seen at three servings of ProFibe per day. Compare LDL-C to LDL-C, not total cholesterol.   ProFibe is an on going program to achieve and maintain lower LDL levels and possible reduction of soft plaque in the arteries.

        Water-soluble fibers, including those found in ProFibe, can increase flatulence.  This may be controlled by gradually introducing ProFibe into your diet to acclimate the body to the high fiber intake.  Diet, exercise, hydration, meds, etc. also play a part in flatulence. 


  Stepping up to good health 


    Introduce ProFibe into your diet gradually.  Serving scoop is provided in each container of ProFibe.  Serving size is 10.4 grams of powder (1 rounded tablespoon).  Begin with 1/2 serving or less only once per day.  Gradually increase to one serving per day over a few days.  Slowly increase by 1/2 servings to 2 servings per day (one morning and one evening) and then 3 servings per day (one morning, one noon and one evening) over several weeks.  Eventually a heaping scoop in the morning and then another heaping scoop later in the day is an option that works well for many people.

        Research accumulated over 50 years has found that 15 grams of water-soluble fiber (wsf) per day (found in 3 servings of ProFibe) is recommended for optimal benefits to lower elevated LDL-C (Journal of The Franklin Institute, Vol. 331.A. pp. 199-202, 1994).  Research from UF found that wsf can be beneficial in regressing soft plaque in the arteries. (Circulation. 1994;89:1247-1253; Clin. Cardiol. 11:595-600; 1988).


        . ProFibe should be offset from prescription medications by one hour.  ProFibe is made of food ingredients and can be taken with vitamins, minerals and supplements.

        . Drink plenty of water as recommended by the American Medical Association.

        . Best results occur when ProFibe and water are shaken. Add some water to a container; add ProFibe, then remaining liquid.  Top on container and shake. ProFibe is a colloid; it suspends, does not dissolve.  Swirl if ProFibe begins to separate. 

        . Any liquid you prefer may be used with ProFibe.  Be aware that fruit juices, for example, turn to sugar in the body and could affect triglycerides in some people.

        . Add to food after cooking process.  May be used in baking but not over 350 degrees.

        . ProFibe does not contain grapefruit. Original studies at UF began with grapefruit pectin then changed to citrus pectin (minus grapefruit). Grapefruit juice and grapefruit meat (not grapefruit pectin) are suspected to interfere with certain medications.  However, to avoid confusion, we do not use any form of grapefruit in the formulation of ProFibe.  ProFibe continues to be made with non-genetically modified soy protein, guar gum(wsf), and citrus pectin (wsf) from lemons, limes, etc – no grapefruit.

Charlie's Heart "Well Charlie, I never thought we would reach 75 years old. I've watched you dodge a lot of bullets in our time together. You did have enough sense though to make some serious changes as you got older and your knowledge of heart disease grew. Boy, am I glad!"

"Let's expand our knowledge a little more about preventing heart disease and perhaps even reversing heart desease.The first thing we need to do is define what cholesterol is and comes from. "Cholesterol is a soft, fat like sub- stance found in all the body's cells. It is used to form cell membranes, certain hormones and other necessary substances "People get cholesterol in two ways.

The body - primarily the liver - produces varying amounts, usually about 1,000 mg a .day. An additional 400 mg to 500 mg or more can come directly from foods. Foods from animals, especially egg yolks, meat, fish, poultry and whole milk dairy products, contain it; food from plants don't. Typically the body makes all the cholesterol it needs, so it's not something that people need to consume to maintain their health."

"Besides being present in human tissues, cholesterol is also found in the bloodstream. The blood transports cholesterol to and from various parts of the body. Hypercholesterolemia is the term for high layers of cholesterol in the blood." Charly, I know this is pretty basic information but wait until you see what high cholesterol can do to our arteries. Remember, Charlie, I only weigh a pound or two but I have the responsibility of pumping a couple of thousand gallons of blood per day throughout our body."

"Now that I have your attention, let's explore the relationship between the different cholesterol components and what they represent." "The levels of HDL and LDL in the blood are measured to evaluate the risk of arteriosclerosis."

"Arteriosclerosis is a general term for the thickening and hardening of arteries. Some hardening of arteries normally occurs when people grow older. Arteriosclerosis , a type of arteriosclerosis, comes from the Greek word athero (meaning gruel or paste)
