Human Study: Top Results From Medically Supervised Trial

The much-anticipated results of the latest Pondera Wellness human study are documented below.  The positive results were evident across the board with all 45 individuals that completed the 6-week study.  This trial included the most comprehensive examination of laboratory and patient survey data completed to date with the use of Pondera.  Every individual that completed the study experienced health benefits which are specifically documented herein.

In cooperation between Pondera Wellness and the Quapaw Tribe of Oklahoma, a general human trial of the health benefits of Pondera Formula 1 was conducted. Please note that the study was not randomized or held as a blind-study of control subjects without knowledge of the product or its potential benefit in advance. The trial was conducted with the voluntary participation of 45 individuals in varying stages of health. Pondera Wellness funded this trial, and this reporting is presented based on the observations of Dr. Sterling Wood, an independent nursing staff and an independent laboratory with no stake, benefit implied or conveyed to these independent parties for their services or the outcome.

While the results of this trial are very impressive, this information is not intended to offer a conclusive result for any issue of health. The potential for benefit is apparent, but please consult with your physician before beginning a new nutritional regimen, and before making changes to your overall health practices, prescriptions and treatments. Pondera Formula One is a food-based nutritional supplement and therefore contains no pharmaceutical compounds that could interact with medications to any extent beyond interactions with various types of foods.  Some users of Pondera have reported an increase in gas, and occasionally stomach cramps and diarrhea but in no instances dangerous or life-threatening, and ended when the use of Pondera concluded.  Often these effects are temporary but we urge you to consult your doctor if you experience any discomfort or possess any food allergies when taking Pondera.  To the knowledge of this author there have been no embellishments, omissions or fabrications in terms of the data produced in this article.

CONCLUSION:  This Represents Major Lifestyle Changes in 1-2 Weeks From Pondera

Based upon laboratory data and lifestyle portfolios of this study, these conclusions were drawn.

Note:  This is not formulated from any outside work.

  1. Lifestyle – 100% of participants showed major lifestyle modifications within 1-2 weeks with noted:
    1. Higher energy levels
    2. More active
    3. Eating less at every outside meal
    4. Choosing much more favorable food
    5. Improved moods throughout the day
    6. Better sleeping habits

 The following results were independently collected by Diagnostic Laboratory of Oklahoma. Specifics are noted in the case-by-case reports that follow. Pondera Wellness conducts human study with Quapaw tribe in Oklahoma

Overall, the following key observations were made:

  • Major reductions of triglycerides and LDL with HDL elevations.
  • Amazing changes in cardiac risk profiles.  (triglycerides divided by HDL)
  • Much better control of hypoglycemic patients with return to regular blood sugars and improved daily functions.
  • Excellent blood sugar maintenance from 99% of pre-diabetics and diabetics type I and type II.
  • 99% improvement of diabetic and pre-diabetic hemoglobin A1C.
  • 71% of kidney and liver functions changing to become more normal.
  • Hemoglobin levels becoming more normal and helping 2 participants to not need transfusions at last test.
  • Body fat reduction in almost all participants.  Weight loss was seen in a lot of participants.
  • Large reductions of C-Reactive protein indicating body inflammation and organ inflammation reduced.
  • All results that were seen within the first 3 weeks continued throughout the 6-week test.  This is a short testing period to see such dramatic and sustained results.
  • Elimination or reduction of diabetes type I and type II medications by the doctors of some participants.
  • Elimination or reduction of statin medications by the doctors of some participants.
  • Elimination or reduction of anxiety or depression medications by the doctors of some participants.

LABORATORY STATISTICAL ANALYSIS AT 6 WEEKS

  • 71% (31 of 45) of participants showed significant improvement and reduction of BUN and Creatinine. This relates to significant results in kidney function improvement.
  • 71% (31 of 45) showed significant reduction of ALT and AST enzymes.  This indicates liver healing on a level that is rare.
  • 54% (24 of 45) showed reduction of triglycerides.   Most participants were taking statin drugs.
  • Pondera worked quickly to reduce formally stationery values.
  • 48% (21 of 45) showed lowered cholesterol readings.
  • 34% (15 of 45) showed elevated HDL cholesterol which is also a difficult value to raise.
  • 20% (9 of 45) showed reductions of LDL cholesterol.
  • 50% (22 of 45) showed a reduction in Cardiac Risk Profile.  This value is measured by dividing triglycerides by HDL.  This value is very sensitive for heart attack and stroke possibility.
  • 99% (25 of 26 diabetics and pre-diabetics tested) showed improvement in hemoglobin A1C.
  • 100% (5 of 5 hypoglycemic participants tested) showed marked and stable elevations of glucose to normal levels.
  • 95% (23 of 25 diabetic and pre-diabetic participants tested), when consuming Pondera, maintained or lowered blood sugar levels. *
  • This shows that Pondera is a complete, satisfying meal that will keep blood sugar in favorable ranges.
  • Test was performed as follows:  diabetics and pre-diabetics take fasting blood sugar in a.m. and write values down.
  • They were instructed not to take prescribed diabetic medications at this time.  They were to consume 2 scoops of Pondera instead.
  • Three hours later, they were to take blood glucose levels and record.  Note:  most participants were not hungry at 3 hours, post-Pondera.
  • 29% (13 of 45) had significant drops in C-Reactive Protein which is an inflammation indicator.
  • 29% (13 of 45) had improvements in hemoglobin (oxygen in blood stream).

* The maintenance or lowering of blood sugar levels were facilitated and observed in the following manner:

  • Test was performed as follows:  diabetics and pre-diabetics take fasting blood sugar in a.m. and write values down.
  • They were instructed not to take prescribed diabetic medications at this time.  They were to consume 2 scoops of Pondera instead.
  • Three hours later, they were to take blood glucose levels and record.  Note:  most participants were not hungry at 3 hours, post-Pondera.

DATA PER PARTICIPANT GROUPS BASED ON VARIOUS HEALTH CONDITIONS

PRE-DIABETICS:  All saw decreases in HgbA1C and blood sugar.  All felt better overall and had more energy and alertness

TYPE I DIABETICS:  All saw reductions in amounts and dosage of insulin with one being totally removed from it.

TYPE II DIABETICS:   All had a drop in HgbA1C.  Blood sugars stayed the same or dropped on Pondera dosage.  Random blood sugars much better.

Dosage of hypoglycemic medicines (Metformin, Actos, Januvia) were reduced or totally removed.  Skin abrasions and cuts all healed.

HYPOGLYCEMICS:  All were seeing normalized blood sugars, reduced times of eating, reduced HgbA1C and eliminated anxiety medications.

ARTHRITIS:  Psoriatic – 2 participants obtained much greater motion and virtually eliminated all pain.

Osteoarthritis – 3 participants with knee pain and limited mobility all experienced greater range of motion and major reduction of pain.

SKIN RELATED:  Psoriasis – 1 participant had arms and hands completely covered with lesions and after 6 weeks on Pondera, 95% resolved.

Eczema – 2 participants had 90%, or better, resolution.

1 participant with Stasis Edema Eczema was completely relieved of Edema and Eczema.

Hair Loss (Alopecia) – 4 participants, with severe hair loss, were growing thick, full hair on Pondera.  And one of their hairdressers even came to see me to discuss the results.

CHRONIC FATIGUE:  All 15 participants with fatigue and malaise were 100% resolved after only 2 weeks on Pondera.

FIBROMYALGIA:  2 participants were both much better with pain and associated-anxiety removed.

DEPRESSION:  1 participant, with severe chronic depression, had been hospitalized 3 times prior to the study.  She stated that Pondera had given her life back and that she was able to cope so much easier.

WEIGHT:  33 participants lost weight.

ANXIETY:  Everyone who had expressed anxiety said that it was much relieved, especially those with Hypoglycemia.

SLEEP DEPRIVATION AND APNEA:  All 45 participants, after only 2 weeks on Pondera, said that their sleep quality was much better, required less sleep and grogginess was almost eliminated.  One participant who, prior to the study, wore a sleep apnea apparatus was able to eliminate its use.

POST GASTRIC BYPASS:  All 3 participants expressed greater energy and feelings of easier digestion.  One participant has been requiring blood transfusions in the hospital 2-3 times yearly.  On Pondera, she reached above-normal hemoglobin levels and was able to avoid a transfusion at testing time.

LIPID DISORDERS:  All participants that had prior knowledge of elevated lipid disorders improved their triglycerides, total cholesterol and some improved their HDL cholesterol.  Some with no prior knowledge saw triglycerides fall from 300-500 points over the 6-week period with reductions in total cholesterol and some also had improved HDL cholesterol.

CARDIAC RISK PROFILE:  90% of all participants showed a drop when needed.  (Cardiac Risk is triglycerides/HDL).  Some had drops of 19 points, which is the most I have ever witnessed in my medical career.

ELEVATED LIVER ENZYMES:  (note: I have never seen marked improvement of liver enzymes in my 29 year medical career)  Participants showed 71% improved elevated kidney functions.  71% also showed improvement in kidney enzymes.

CARDIAC SURGERY (POST) & STENT:  3 participants all said they felt much better and that it was easier walking.  Those who had bypass surgery showed major reductions of edema where veins were taken from lower legs.

LEUKEMIA:  1 participant showed major changes in CBC, hemoglobin, platelets, RBC and WBC levels as well as reduction of triglycerides and blood sugar.
