  • Protein Supplements can be Dangerous!

    I have been telling people for years now that the 'protein myth' is alive and well in the U.S. and apparently the world considering the news today that a 25 year old body builder in Australia died from what appears to be excessive consumption of protein and protein supplements.

    I have had the opportunity to speak with a few body builders after they had blood work done and the line of questioning goes like this:  Do you take a lot of protein isolates?  They invariably answer in the affirmative.  Next question:  How does you liver panel look?  The answer is invariably will there were some problematic issues in my last panel.  Too much of just about anything can harm your health.  Protein in excessive amounts certainly qualifies as a harmful product if done in large amounts.

    My advice is BE CAREFUL with any protein supplement and please watch your diet.  Even lean meats in excessive amounts can be harmful especially if it is the 'conventional' type beef, full of BGH, antibiotics and lord know what else.  These sort of chemicals can accumulate in the body and cause all sorts of issues.

    We always like to use as much vegetable sourced proteins as they come with all the good fats and oils required to break down proteins.  This is so important and why many of the protein isolates out there can be harmful, they are devoid of naturally occurring fats an oils!  Hemp hearts are a great example, while not as high in protein per serving, they are a tasty and highly nutritious food that contains great omega 3 and 6s.  Food combining is something we should all do to maximize proteins in our diets, rice/grains and beans/legumes for example.  I don't know of a single incident where someone died of over doing these types of foods.  Make sure they are organic!

    Enerhealth Botanicals tries to present good information concerning your health and ways to achieve optimum health.  For everyone that phrase, 'optimum health' can carry different meanings and we try to meet people where they find themselves on the health continuum.  Enerhealth also offers a variety of organic nutritional supplements, foodaceuticals, that can help you achieve your personal goals, whatever they may be.

  • Colon Cancer is on the rise, Why?

    Wow, you would think that someone might make a connection.  What goes into the mouth, ends up in the gut and out the colon.  Does anyone think that it might be diet?  Perhaps the influx of GMOs?  This would be an interesting study that will probably not happen.  Lots of great drugs and radical radiation and chemo to ‘cure’ all your ills!

     

    http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/08/health/colon-cancer-rectal-cancer-deaths-study/index.html

     

    The article says: “To reduce your risk of colon and rectal cancers, Siegel recommended maintaining a healthy body weight, staying physically active, avoiding drinking alcohol excessively and avoiding smoking.”  All of which is true but the odd part missing is what I mention above!  Perhaps a better diet, one that eliminates as much as possible GMOs and high quality supplements could be the best preventative measures!

    Here at Enerhealth Botanicals we believe in proper nutrition and great herbal supplements to achieve and maintain optimum health!  Our view on this subject does not include GMO anything!

  • Four years into hemp’s legalization, NoCo Expo again lures industry leaders, visionaries

    By: John Garvey

    LOVELAND -- The 4th NoCo Hemp Expo, held March 31-April 1 in Loveland, again affirmed Northern Colorado’s place at the hemp industry’s epicenter.

    The largest hemp business event in the U.S. -- if not the world -- the Expo drew more than 100 businesses specializing in hemp products and ancillary services, plus legal advocates, artists and dozens of speakers

    .expo-inside-use

    Shortly after hemp’s legalization under Amendment 64, a group of thought leaders organized the first NoCo Hemp Expo, an inauspicious meeting held in a Loveland bar.

    By its third year, the event had become a Mecca for hemp entrepreneurs and activists. The list of speakers, vendors and sponsors reads like a Who’s Who of industry players.

    Hemp didn’t draw nearly the attention of the legal marijuana industry out of the gates, but the Expo -- now held at The Ranch Events Complex -- has gone far beyond its low-key origins.

    For Dr. Christopher Shade, CEO and founder of Lafayette-based THR Technologies, nutraceutical cannabis was a natural extension of the company’s previous work in natural products.

    THR, a subsidiary of Quicksilver Scientific, specializes in lipid nanoparticle technology for use in dietary supplements.

    “Quicksilver developed around technologies for assessing and treating metal toxicity in people,” said Shade. “To effectively treat people we needed to develop a better delivery system for nutraceuticals.

    “And we used lipid nanoparticle technology for making little spheres -- sometimes called liposomes -- to increase absorption of nutraceutical compounds in the GI tract. And as we made these better and better, we got them so they’d absorb right through the oral cavity into circulation.”

    A superior extraction process should result in a repeatable, metered, predictable dose, Shade said. Based on THR’s previous work on products like green tea extract and resveratrol, Shade said the medical cannabis industry was an obvious fit.

    Since most Colorado-grown hemp is used for consumables such as tinctures, industry players are grappling to refine the chemical extraction process to maximize purity, bioavailability (think absorption) and palatability.

    The plant contains compounds including cannabinoids and terpenes that are increasingly sought after for their medicinal properties. Best known among many, cannabidiol (CBD) has been used to formulate medications undergoing FDA testing for Dravet Syndrome, a crippling form of epilepsy.

    THC, the main psychoactive compound in cannabis, is essentially absent in hemp. By legal definition, hemp must contain less than 0.3 percent THC on a dry weight basis.

    So while it can’t get people high, the legal distinction between hemp and “marijuana” is somewhat arbitrary.

    Hemp’s nutritional value is another industry focus. Longmont-based EnerHealth Botanicals recently distinguished itself by becoming the first company to get U.S.-grown hemp seeds on grocery shelves.

    Robbie Jaramillo, the company’s director of customer support and sales, said he is proud of this milestone.

    “One of our aims when we developed the product and started with the R&D … was to have a 16-ounce bag cheaper than [industry leader Manitoba Harvest]. And at the Natural Grocers store it is. It’s cheaper by 10 cents.”

    NoCo_Hemp_Expo_logo

    Jaramillo said he believes the much more mature Canadian industry is supportive of America’s emerging hemp market in spite of the inevitable competition.

    The considerable majority of all Colorado hemp is grown for self-care and medicinal products derived from its oils. Its highly-nutritious grain contains all nine essential amino acids and a healthy accompaniment of fatty acids, yet less than 10 percent of all plants cultivated in the state are for food.

    For those yearning to see hemp’s industrial potential unleashed, the gaping infrastructure gap for processing hemp fiber and stalk is the key issue.

    The processing machinery required for seed, clothing, rope, composites and other purposes varies considerably. Because hemp farms tend to be small and have unique needs, a small number of firms like Power Zone Equipment, Inc. are designing and retrofitting farming equipment to suit the individual needs of growers.

    “We don’t necessarily go out and build off-the-shelf stuff,” notes PowerZone marketing director Brandon Maston.

    “We build custom stuff, so we’re building directly to a farmer’s needs, directly to a specific purpose as opposed to trying to find out what’s something that might work for a lot of people and then requiring them to conform to what we want them to.”

    The company's Grasshopper is a decorticator of Maston’s design. Decortication separates hemp fiber from hurd, which is necessary to process industrial hemp but very few such machines are available in the U.S.

    Hemp can be used in building materials such as drywall and “hempcrete”-- a hemp-lime mixture with some advantages over concrete -- as well as textiles, rope and composites used in car panels.

    Hemp fiber is the strongest plant fiber found in nature. Yet while the plant’s durability is fundamental to its industrial value, it also makes it challenging to process.

    In 2015, Colorado had 8,844 acres registered for hemp cultivation -- far more than every other state combined. Kentucky, the runner up, had slightly more than half that figure.

    Expo organizers said hemp is extremely versatile and holds great promise for its industrial and medicinal properties. And while the infrastructure and economies of scale aren’t quite there, the Centennial State seems likely to remain the industry’s vanguard.

  • Take Action Now!

    DEA declares non-psychoactive CBD to be a Schedule 1 substance!

    On Tuesday 12/13 the DEA made a sweeping decision to place CBD extracts in the category of Schedule 1, which defines them as having no medicinal purpose and high-risk of abuse.

    "Schedule I drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. Some examples of Schedule I drugs are: heroin, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), marijuana (cannabis), 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (ecstasy), methaqualone, and peyote."

    You can read the DEA document here

    This is especially disconcerting given that CBD oil is specifically designed to be a healthy and beneficial dietary supplement. Since it does not produce a mind-altering state nor have any known adverse side effects, it would not seem to have a "high potential for abuse". Case studies suggest that CBD oil does indeed have an "accepted medical use" and these studies can be readily found on the internet.

    The DEA did this in direct contradiction to existing law, the 2014 Farm bill which specifically states that all parts of the hemp plant are legal and allows for interstate transport of hemp products. The DEA is acting as if it were Congress in effect by implementing 'administrative actions' that for all practical purposes create new 'laws' that usurp Congress' authority.

    Unless there is a change, on 1/13/17 there is a high-possibility that CBD processors will no longer be able to ship this product to people who rely on it to help manage their well being. It will only be available within the states where cannabis is already legal. This is an unacceptable infringement on your rights as a US citizen! It is time to take back control over our destinies.

    LET YOUR REPRESENTATIVES KNOW YOU WANT THIS HARMLESS & NON-PSYCHOACTIVE PLANT TO BE AVAILABLE TO THOSE WHO NEED IT!

    If you are unsure about how to contact your representatives, then just use this link to easily find out their name and how to contact them. Find Your Representatives here!

    All of us need to make our voices heard now! Call both your incoming and outgoing representatives and let them know that this action is unacceptable. The only way to stop this is to take immediate action, and it needs to come from each and every one of us to stop this needless infringement on our rights!

  • EnerHealth’s Whole Hemp Extracts Create The “Entourage Effect”

    hemp-extracts

    Many studies of cannabidiol(CBD) utilize a synthetic, single-molecule CBD produced by laboratories for research purposes. In fact, many of the popular extraction techniques utilized by the industry today are not focused on the whole plant, rather specific parts – namely CBDs.

    In contrast, whole plant extractions, like EnerHealth Botanicals Whole Hemp Extract, include CBDs and more than 400 trace compounds. Many of these compounds interact synergistically with the CBDs to create what scientists refer to as an “entourage effect” that magnifies the therapeutic benefits of the plant’s individual components—so that the medicinal impact of the whole plant is greater than its individual parts.

    Around 200 compounds called terpenes have been found in hemp. Terpenes offer wide-ranging benefits which are typically lacking in “CBD-only” products. Cannabinoid-terpenoid interactions produce synergy within the body to help it modulate inflammation, combat “the blues”, calm the brain, support healthy cognitive function, and fight the more serious health challenges.

    Below is a listing of merely a handful of the active compounds EnerHealth Botanicals has extracted from the whole hemp plant using our spagyric process and the amplified benefits they provide in the body:

    Cannabidiol (CBD) Benefits: calms worriment, analgesic, supports mental balance, modulates inflammation, antioxidant

    Cannabinol (CBN) Benefits: sleep support, antibiotic

    Cannabichromene (CBC) Benefits: modulates inflammation, antibiotic, fungal balance

    Cannabigerol (CBG) Benefits: modulates inflammation, antibiotic, fungal balance

    Terpenoids:

    Myrcene Benefits: analgesic, modulates inflammation, antibiotic

    Caryophyllene Benefits: modulates inflammation, protects cells

    d-limonene Benefits: modulates inflammation, calms worriment, protects cells

    Linalool Benefits: sleep support, supports mental balance, stress coping, modulates inflammation

    Pulegone Benefits: memory booster, sleep support, healthy body temperature

    1,8-cineole (Eucalyptol) Benefits: cognitive support, healthy blood flow, energizer, antibiotic, modulates inflammation

    a-pinene Benefits: modulates inflammation, lung support, energizer, antibiotic, whole body balance

    a-terpineol Benefits: sleep support, antibiotic, antioxidant

    Terpineol-4-ol Benefits: antibiotic

    p-cymene Benefits: antibiotic, fungal balance, memory support

    Flavonoid and phytosterol components and their benefits:

    Apigenin Benefits: mood support, modulates inflammation, estrogen balance

    Quercetin Benefits: antioxidant, healthy cell growth

    Cannflavin A Benefits: modulates inflammation

    Beta-Sitosterol Benefits: modulates inflammation, healthy prostate function

Immune Boosting Benefits of Medicinal Mushrooms

    Mushrooms have been used for centuries by traditional healers to help strengthen the immune system. A good source of calcium, magnesium, potassium, fiber, niacin, essential amino acids and Vitamins B and D, mushrooms have been used in China and elsewhere around the world as natural remedies, and to help boost immunity for centuries.

    The following fungi are well known for their purported beneficial properties including:

    Agaricus blazei - This nutrient-dense mushroom contains higher levels of protein than most other mushrooms. In traditional Chinese medicine Agaricus blazei was known to help build immunity and promote healthy body weight, and as a detoxifier to help improve liver function.

    Cordyceps - This mushroom, which grows out of caterpillar larvae in the Himalayas. has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to help treat conditions including coughing, wheezing, reducing fatigue, and to calm nervousness. Cordyceps mushrooms are also revered for their potential to enhance physical performance.

    Coriolus versicolor - This mushroom has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries but since the1970s has become one of the most widely researched mushrooms in conventional medicine. More than 400 studies have evaluated Coriolus mushrooms for their immune-boosting qualities.

    Ganoderma - This mushroom grows on wood and is one of Asia's most popular medicinal mushrooms. Many species of Ganoderma contain bioactive compounds and antioxidants that have potential therapeutic benefits including promoting liver health, helping reduce cholesterol, and may have antimicrobial qualities.

    Maitake - Maitake mushrooms grow in clusters at the base of oak trees and are native to Northeastern Japan and North America. In 2009, a human trial showed Maitake could stimulate the immune systems.

    Shiitake - Traditional Chinese herbalists have used shiitake mushrooms to help with ailments including gastrointestinal distress, and liver problems. It is known that ancient physicians prescribed shiitake to boost chi, or life energy. Today, shiitake mushrooms are a subject of intense research, and the medicinal capabilities attributed to the mushroom are so prized that it is now among the most cultivated of the world's edible mushrooms.

    With all the beneficial qualities of these mushrooms, EnerHealth decided to create a method to capture the immune supporting benefits of these mushrooms in an easy and delicious way.
