What is 1st Line?

1st Line is a refreshingly new and unique weapon to help us fight infection in our ever resistant world. It consists of a four part enzymatic kit that provides 25 mg of thiocyanates ions in half a litre of water.

Up until now, while the benefits of thiocyanates in protecting us against infection may have been understood, the actual method by which you could easily provide supplementation has stood in the way of thiocyanate supplements reaching the market place.

Fortunately, a British chemist by the name of Richard Stead has been able to overcome these issues – and the result is 1st Line. By using Richard Stead’s patented technology, the 1st Line kit allows the four individual elements that go to make up the thiocyanate solution to be stable at room temperature for up to 2 years. When required, using 1st Line is simplicity itself. All that is required is for these four ingredients to be mixed into water and the resulting almost tasteless solution to be drunk within 2-hours of preparation.
The order that the elements are mixed in to the water is crucially important but the 1st Line kit provides you with easy to follow instructions so that you can be assured that, if followed correctly, you will be able to give yourself an unmitigated boost to your thiocyanate levels.

The infection fighting capabilities of thiocyanates are impressive. Not only do they offer a broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity (active against both gram negative and gram positive bacteria) but they are also effective against viruses, yeasts and fungi – none of which respond to antibiotics. This means that the number of pathogens against which thiocyanates are effective against is much wider than that of antibiotics and includes some of the most common global infections such as:

•  Staphylococcus aureus
•  Campylobacter jejuni
•  Escherichia coli
•  Haemophilus influenzae
•  Listeria monocytogenes
•  Salmonella

In addition, thiocyanate supplementation avoids some of the unpleasant side effects of antibiotic treatment. The problem with antibiotics is that they are indiscriminate and will attack healthy cells as well as unwanted bacteria. This can be particularly problematic in the intestines where antibiotics may upset the delicate balance of healthy bacteria and cause intestinal problems. Thiocyanates, on the other hand, do not attack healthy cells or healthy bacteria – they only attack unwanted invaders! And being bio-identical, the safety profile of thiocyanates is extremely good, provided, of course, that doses are kept within normal levels.

And 1st line is so effective that if you take it at the first signs of a cold/flu like infection, you may not need to repeat the dose and if you do, the need to take more than two doses is highly unlikely. And even if you are feeling well, by giving your thiocyanate levels the occasional boost you can not only increase your immunity but also improve your energy levels and your general sense of well being.

Quick Overview:

1st Line is a scientific breakthrough discovery in the fight against everyday infections. The science is based on a thiocyanate solution now patented technology invented by British chemist Richard Stead.

Product Description:

1st Line or KIB500 is a remarkable new discovery in the fight against everyday infections.

1st Line’s patented formula makes up into a drink containing hypothiocyanite and hypothiocyannous ions, identical to those in tears, saliva and milk. These ions are a critical defence against a wide range of pathogens including bacteria, yeasts, fungi and viruses; many of which they destroy on contact.

Until recently, the unstable hypothiocyanite ions could not be stored. In a technical breakthrough, the 1st Line kit enables the ions to be produced immediately prior to use so they can be consumed ‘fresh’, whenever required. For the first time, hypothiocyanite ions can be used as a supplement.

These bio-identical immune molecules differ from antibiotics in two ways:

1. The ions are very small molecules, with a molecular weight of around 90. They therefore diffuse further and faster though tissues than the much larger synthetic antibiotics.
2. They kill a surprisingly wide range of disease-causing micro-organisms, but unlike synthetic antibiotics do not damage probiotic species such as lactobacilli and bifidobacteria. Our immune systems and these beneficial bacterial species have co-evolved, and have ‘learned’ to co-exist. 1st Line should be used at the first symptom of an infection.

Only one kit should be used per day and often only one is required. If symptoms persist another kit can be consumed the following day. Persons with more serious symptoms can use 1st Line up to twice a week, dependent upon need.  And let us remember that hypothiocyanite ions are not toxic to human cells, they appear to have excellent tissue penetration and have little if any effect on probiotic species, making them a near perfect antibiotic system. Scientists speculate that the age of antibiotics may be coming to an end. This is because there has been a relentless increase in antibiotic resistance across all classes of drug. Furthermore, recent articles on antibiotic resistance in China paint an alarming picture of a near-future where antibiotics will have little therapeutic value (Heddini et al 2009). Sadly, the use of antibiotics inevitably leads to the selection of resistance traits; the overuse and misuse of antibiotics in medical and other situations makes it increasingly unlikely that we will be able to stay ahead in the war against infection. Important work in such areas as quorum-sensing blockade may produce important new drugs, but these will not be available soon. Various alternatives have been proposed from the natural world, and this article reviews one of the most prominent candidates that being the lactoperoxidase system, specifically thiocynate ions as contained in 1st Line. Unlike antibiotics, thiocyanates are also effective against viruses. Viruses have sulfhydryl groups on their coating. Thiocyanates work to oxidise this coating and in doing so the structure of the virus is destroyed. Given its broad spectrum, the number of pathogens against which thiocyanates are effective against is pretty impressive and includes some of the most common global infections such as: Staphylococcus aureus; sometimes called golden staph. Common infections caused by s. Aureus include boils and sores and impetigo. It can also cause more serious infections such as meningitis, endocarditis, pneumonia and osteomyelitis. S. aureus infections can sometimes prove fatal Campylobacter jejuni; One of the most common causes of human gastroenteritis worldwide Candida albicans; Causes yeast infections such as thrush Escherichia coli; Causes gastric problems such as stomach cramps, vomiting and diarrhoea Haemophilus influenzae; Responsible for a wide range of diseases including pneumonia, acute bacterial meningitis, Cellulitis and osteomyelitis Herpes simplex virus; Oral herpes causes cold sores around the mouth or face. Genital herpes affects the genitals, buttocks or anal area Listeria monocytogenes; Causes listeriosis, a particular nasty form of food poisoning that can be fatal Salmonella; Responsible for food borne salmonella that typically affect the intestines, causing vomiting and fever Streptococcus mutans; Found in the mouth, this bacterium contributes significantly to tooth decay You may be forgiven for thinking that the adaptation and evolution of resistant strains must take many years to occur. But you would be wrong. The build-up of resistance and the development of resistant strains of bacteria happen remarkably quickly (at least in evolutionary terms). It also happens in parallel with the use of antibiotics. For example, in an 11-year study of Swiss cancer patients no strains of the bacteria Escherichia coli resisted any of the fluroquinolone antibiotics used against them during the period 1983 and 1990. However, in the following three years 28% of the Escherichia coli strains became resistant to all fluoroquinolone antibiotics.

The development of this resistance occurred at the same time as the use of the fluroquinolone antibiotics rose from 1.4% of patients being treated with them to a staggering 45% of patients receiving fluroquinolone therapy1. So just how did we allow the ever increasing rise in the number of antibiotic resistant bacteria to happen? The answer to this question is not of course straight-forward and no single cause can be identified. But what is clear is that we have become complacent in our use of antibiotics. Their very success in treating disease may represent their downfall. Many people are quite happy to take antibiotics even when they are not really necessary and this has created a tendency for overuse and misuse: Some people use antibiotics to fight minor ailments that do not require such treatment for a patient to effectively recover It’s not uncommon to find antibiotics being used to fight viral infections even though antibiotics are ineffective against viruses. They are used as “props” when alternative methods of infection control might be preferable (consider the use of quarantine or sterile equipment).

Certainly the prophylactic use of antibiotics during surgery can lead to overuse. Surgeons perhaps feel that their patients may be at risk if such treatment regimes are not followed. And yet a sterile operating theatre should mean that infection should not occur. Inadequate use of appropriately prescribed antibiotics may also be adding to the problem. Although we are prescribed a course of antibiotic with the instruction to complete the course, this doesn’t always happen. Perhaps you feel better before the medication has run out so you stop taking the antibiotics without completing the full course. Or perhaps the antibiotics were causing unwelcome side effects so you halt treatment early. Whatever the reason, there is an argument for suggesting that infections become more resilient if treatment is stopped early. And because the bacteria were not completely over-powered the first time around, subsequent infection is less responsive to antibiotic treatment. The increasing mobility of populations also aggravates the situation. Resistant strains can become widespread very quickly. Take the emergence of resistant tuberculosis - thanks in part to modern jet travel, it quickly spread from New York to Denver, Florida, Nevada and Paris. Whatever the cause for the over-use or misuse of antibiotics, the end result is the same in that we have ended up with far too many antibiotics in the community. And given the speed at which bacteria appear to be able to respond to such widespread antibiotic use, our actions are simply serving to accelerate the evolution of resistant bacterial strains. As a consequence, we are left with a situation where the pharmaceutical industry simply cannot keep pace with Mother Nature.
