This is the fifth and final interview with Dr. Jeffrey Burke on the Endocannabinoid support products from Emerald Health Bioceuticals. This has been a fascinating and in-depth look at the endocannabinoid system and at how nutritional herbs provide deep support. CLICK HERE for access to all the interviews with Dr. Jeffrey Burke.

We have also covered much of the content in the booklet “The Healing Power of the Endocannabinoid System”. This booklet by Dr. Michael Murray et al. describes how the endocannabinoid system works and its role in human health. He discusses some of nature’s most potent plants when it comes to providing ECS support. Hint: it’s not all about CBD or other cannabis extracts. It is Dr. Murray’s opinion that these other plants may, for some, works better than CBD.

PhytoCann Herbs

Endo Inflame by Emerald Health Bioceuticals is one of the most popular formulas. Certainly pain and inflammation are problems for many. Endo Inflame uses the proprietary PhytoCann Complex and is complemented by two well-known herbs for inflammation: curcumin and boswellia. Here is an excerpt from the booklet:

“Natural products to modulate the ECS. There are a number of plant extracts that support the ECS on multiple levels. The top six include:

  • Clove oil (concentrated forβ-caryophyllene). The pain-relieving aspects of clove oil are well known—mothers have used it to soothe the irritated gums of teething infants for generations. Clove oil contains several analgesic ingredients, but the one most researched for its effects on the ECS is β-caryophyllene. This compound is able to bind with great affinity to CB2 receptors, and is thought to be one of the ECS’ primary mechanisms to reduce pain.
  • Echinacea purpurea. Compounds in echinacea called alkylamides bind to CB2 receptors with great affinity, helping to boost the immune system. They also prolong the effects of anandamide on the ECS. Clinical studies on an alkylamide-rich extract have shown positive effects for relieving stress and anxiety.
  • Zanthoxylum or Sichuan pepper. This tingly pepper contains alkylamides that display very strong affinity to CB1 and CB2 receptors. These compounds also influence transient receptor potential channels, which are involved in the electrical control of cells, help cells communicate with each other, and work closely with the ECS.
  • Peony. This exotic flowering plant contains paeoniflorin, which has a number of benefits for endocannabinoid influence on cellular function. Like the alkylamides in Sichuan peppers, paeoniflorin influences transient receptor potential channels that are involved in the electrical control of cells and feelings of pain.
  • Ginger. This herb has a multitude of health benefits. In particular, it helps the ECS mediate some pain, inflammation, and gastrointestinal effects. Ginger’s volatile components also influence transient receptor potential channels.
  • Magnolia. This fragrant, flowering tree contains magnolol, which is very effective at binding to both CB1 and CB2 receptors. Magnolia extracts also promote a relaxed mental state, which can significantly reduce anxiety”
  • Curcumin. This yellow pigment of turmeric (Curcuma longa)—the chief ingredient in curry—is one of the most intensely researched natural products available today. A variety of clinical studies show that curcumin has anti-inflammatory activity. In addition, research shows that curcumin helps convert the plant-based omega-3 fatty acid ALA into the EPA and DHA omega-3s most commonly found in fsh oil, which could be why vegans in India who eat a diet rich in curry have excellent levels of EPA and DHA, while vegans in North America do not.
  • Boswellia serrata. This herb contains anti-inflammatory compounds boswellic acids and triterpenoids that complement the effects of curcumin. Since these compounds tend to be poorly absorbed in the body, we recommend the Casperome brand of boswellia. Casperome uses a technology called Phytosome to bind boswellia compounds with phosphatidylcholine (a key component of lecithin), which greatly enhance absorption. End excerpt.

Reduce Pain and Inflammation Naturally

Endo Inflame naturally promotes your body’s healthy response to pain and inflammation by nourishing your endocannabinoid system for optimal health and vitality. Endo inflame has positive effects in reducing pain*, by balancing key biological processes for better cellular health.

  • Promotes homeostasis (Biological balance of body and mind)*
  • Supports Endocannabinoid Receptor Sites*
  • Production and Retention of Endocannabinoids*
  • Promotes Mobility and Flexibility*

If you deal with pain and inflammation then it is in your interest to explore the world of nutritional solutions. Remember that pain and inflammation are symptoms of underlying disorder. Reducing pain and inflammation is important especially for those with chronic conditions. Using products like Endo Inflame can provide relief and comfort, which are very important, but they often don’t address underlying issues. For example, if you have joint pain for whatever reason, it is often necessary to seek relief from the pain. But for long term success you must also support the inflamed system or tissues. In the joint pain example, you want to support bones, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, collagen, synovial fluid, circulation, muscles etc.

All or some of these body parts may be involved and you will want to explore additional nutrients that support these tissues. These are your foundational targets. Think less about treating your “disease” and think more about how to provide targeted nutritional support to those specific areas.

Let your doctor treat your disease. Let food and nutritional supplements nourish your body. Your body is programmed for health, healing, maintenance and restoration. The body cannot do these things if you are poorly nourished.

This is the last of 5 interviews with Dr. Jeffrey Burke where we explore each of the individual products from Emerald Health Bioceuticals.

321 – Peace Possible and the Food Movement

Dr. Weiss has taken the road less traveled when it comes to aiding poor and impoverished children around the world. He started by asking the question “What causes youth to become radicalized and fall prey to the terrorists groups to which they become aligned?” This is a very profound question and the answer is just as profound.Dr. Weiss has set up numerous operations around the globe which focus on providing what these communities need in order to reverse the trend to radicalization. Ultimately the solution involves creating environments where people have opportunity to live healthy and productive lives. Proper and targeted nutrition can make a huge difference. It is impossible to gain an education and become a productive adult when day to day circumstances make life dangerous. Lack of the essential factors of life make it nearly impossible not to be adversely affected.

320 – The Endocannabinoid System – Part 4 – Endo Brain

This is Part 4 of my series on the Endocannabinoid System. In this interview with Dr. Jeffrey Burke we will discuss Endo Brain. Endo Brain naturally helps support mental acuity and cognition by nurturing and nourishing your endocannabinoid system in the following ways:

Supports memory and cognition*
Has beneficial effects on key neurotransmitters*
Facilitates homeostasis (biological balance of body and mind)*
Nourishes the endocannabinoid receptor sites*

Over the course of this series we have considered products for anxiety, mood and sleep and now memory and concentration.

And they can all affect your mood. The challenge is to figure out the best way to nourish your system.

f you are interested in supporting memory, cognition, and even addressing some of the most challenging issues in the aging brain, then you will be interested in this podcast. This interview with Dr. Alan Snow will give you some insight into how this novel nutritional product came to the marketplace. Consumers seldom consider the development of products. How do we know when a nutrient is effective? How do we know it is safe? How do we know that one particular form is the best, maybe even better than synthetic drugs?
This interview will be an excellent illustration of how powerful natural products are discovered and developed into effective health supporting supplements.

314 – CBD Liposomes Provide Up to 10 Times Better Absorption

Are you confused about CBD? If not, perhaps you should be. There are so many aspects to the CBD story that it is easy to be confused and difficult for the average consumers to know what to believe. A lot of what people think about CBD might be wrong or at least misunderstood. And that’s just if we consider the science of CBD.

When one looks into the marketplace of CBD, it appears to be a wild west stampede into the unknown. CBD is an approved drug by FDA and is also being sold in food and supplements.
