The Science of Pondera

In late 1970's and early 1980's, Harvard University researchers made a discovery that changed the medical world forever: Eicosanoids. These powerful ‘signalling compounds’ are produced in the body from Essential Fatty Acids. The Harvard scientists won the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1982. Pondera is based on their research.

Eicosanoids are apocrine hormones that are absolutely crucial for your overall health. They exist on every single cell in your body.  They are nature’s first developed ‘hormonal control system’ for living organisms. Eicosanoids are considered to be the most powerful hormones in existence. These hormones control all vital physiological functions.

Pondera works by providing a positive Eicosanoid response that your body creates naturally through a balanced of nutrients at each meal. This can have an extremely positive effect on your overall health and wellness. We strongly believe Pondera can help almost anyone live a healthier, happier, longer life!

Olive Oil & Whey Protein 

At its most basic level, olive oil provides energy, helps build muscle and is a great anti-inflammatory.  The USDA recommends 25 ml (2 Tbsp.) of olive oil each day. This amount is sorely lacking in western diets. In powder form, your body absorbs these healthy fats better than a glob of oil. Whey protein plays a critical role in building lean muscle while increasing fat loss. Protein also helps moderate blood sugar while helping the body and muscles recover faster after exercise.  Here are some great links that explain the benefits of olive oil and whey protein.


Pondera was formulated by a highly-respected physician, Dr. Sterling Wood. He has over 4 decades in the medical profession — including 27 years as a Diabetic Foot & Limb Salvage surgeon.

After spending 30 years teaching patients how to easily enhance the Eicosanoid Hormone through diet, Dr. Wood decided to leave his practice and devote the next 10+ years to bio-engineering a great tasting meal replacement formula anyone could use.

Here are just a few highlights of Dr. Wood’s extensive medical career:

  • Podiatric Surgeon / Chief of Podiatric Surgery
  • Studied under Nobel Prize recepient Dr. Linus Pauling
  • Author of ‘Eicosanoids, The Road to Cellular Health’
  • Author of ‘Caloric Responsibilty: Don’t Be Afraid of Fats’
  • Director of Chef Training in Zone Diets
  • Cooking Practioner of Preventative Medicine

Customer Testimonials

My name Is Cyndie. I am 61 years old and I was a Registered Nurse for 35 years. I have always believed in approaching health problems the traditional way, with doctors and medicine. I have always been a skeptic when people talk to me about vitamins and nutrition. I have cabinets full of vitamins and it never seemed to make a difference, so, I was no initially that interested nor did I believe his powder would work.

In 1974 I was in a car accident and broke both of my legs. Due to the accident, I suffer from arthritis and inflammation in both knees, and now my hip. About a year ago,  I was finally diagnosed with Scleroderma. Scleroderma is an autoimmune disease which has been attacking my mouth and my entire digestive system. Everything is inflamed and I have been miserable for the last 2 years. I was beginning to believe that this was just going to be my new “quality of life”, and am very grateful that there was something that could do to change it. He stopped by my place of business and took one look at me and told me I looked terrible. He began once again to tell me to start drinking Pondera and follow a simple eating plan that he prepared for me. To surprise within 11/2 weeks of following his suggestions, my hip pain is gone, my knees are better, I move better and I have energy. Normally on my day off i sleep because I am so miserable but last weekend I woke up early feeling great and took my dog for a walk at 7:30 am!

My digestive system is greatly improved, and as a bonus, I have lost of weight without “dieting”. Pondera makes me feel full and I feel satisfied! I almost have forced my self to eat. I will continue with Pondera and Dr Sterling’s recommendations. Thank you Pondera and for being there to urge me to try the Pondera and help me change my eating habits. I got my life back with Pondera and I never want to be without it!” - Cyndie

“My name is Patricia, I met Dr Sterling by chance at a Chrysler dealership. As he was discussing his experience with diab. and Pondera, I decided to try his products.

Before Pondera: I am a type 2 diab. It was discovered 10 years ago. I was prescribed daily meds. My morning sugar is on average 135. I am dragging the morning, I have no energy and I have to push my self to do anything.  My left ankle is swollen in the morning and by evening my whole left leg is swollen and numb as though my leg is asleep and it is painful. I have a pain in the bottom of my foot and I continually stomp my foot trying to offset the pain.

After Pondera: After one week of Using Pondera I was able to discontinue my meds. I feel really good, I have energy, I wake up at 4 am and so my laundry, go shopping, clean my house. There is now more swelling or pain in my left leg. It is completely gone. My blood sugars are averaging 97 in the morning and no higher than 101. People are noticing a difference in my skin. I look healthier and feel wonderful.  I am so exited to find Pondera. I look forward to continuing this product and good eating habits to continue to get results and lower medications as my blood sugar continues to become normal.” - Patricia

A friend sent me Pondera. I was a bad diab. & all my doctors did was up my drugs. I felt so awful, lethargic and in constant pain. I began taking Pondera twice a day.

Within one month I stopped craving sweets and I lost 15lbs. I started gaining energy and feeling like a new person. People couldn't believe the difference in me. Since then everything is so positive, friends are so excited that they have started Pondera!!! - Penny (trustpilot)

This product exceeded all of my expectations. I originally began taking Pondera for the heart health properties.

This has helped improve my quality of sleep, reduced the amount of blood pressure medication I was taking, helped me lose weight, and increased my energy. I cannot say enough about how this product has changed my life. Definitely not your typical protein shake, and worth every penny! - Bridget (trustpilot)

I saw this product on Facebook and was a bit skeptical. A user of Pondera assured me it was great. I ordered this over a month ago and I love it. When I first took it I could feel the energy pick up and I lost weight.

I ran out and didn't reorder and I felt sluggish with in a few days. I just got my second bag last week and I feel incredible again. It keeps me full until lunch and I am using it as a meal replacement and a whole body balancer. It lasts longer than that expensive crap I would buy at GNC. It also helped to get my blood sugar down.Vince (trustpilot)

“Dr.Wood I just want to thank you for introducing me to Pondera. This has helped me so much. Before I used it I was hurting all over in my joints, I didn’t have any energy. I just didn’t want to do anything because I was hurting so bad. But once I started using Pondera and I mean as soon as I started using it I felt my whole body start to tingle.

My sugar level is great now. It’s not jumping up and down. Plus now I don’t hurt any more in my joints. Now I’m outside more working in my yard.” - Hope
