In this interview with Mark Kaylor, we will discuss the properties of green propolis. Mark will make the distinctions between brown, green and red propolis. This is our second interview with Mark on propolis. In our previous interview we discussed brown propolis and in our next interview we will discuss red propolis.

Most people who use propolis don’t know that there are different sources and regions of the world that produce propolis. Most people assume all propolis is the same. They are not. And most people don’t know how to make the distinctions between companies and products. It is one of the biggest mistakes people make when buying nutritional supplements. They don’t put the energy and time to learn how to indentify better companies and products.

One of the main goals of is to explore the science of nutrition and supplement manufacturing. We only allow credible companies to be represented here. We vet them so you don’t have to. In this way we are one of your trusted sources. Then we teach you the important distinctions that make a difference. In this case we have examined NaturaNectar as a company. We interviewed the co-founder J.L. PaisLeme. CLICK here to listen to his interview.

As we look deep into the products produced by NaturaNectar you will learn more about the distinctions between their propolis products. Would you rather buy your propolis from a company whose sole mission is to bring you the best propolis in the world or from a company whose only passion is to capitalize on the naive consumer? You get to decide if it is important enough to you to figure it out.

If it seems like work, it is, but only at first. Once you have identified companies you trust, you can try their products with confidence. That’s how I feel about NaturaNectar. You can try different products if you want to experiment. The best product is the one that works best for you. Don’t be afraid of trying different products. This is how you discover the best nutritional program for you.

Mark discusses the benefits of Cordyceps from both the historical story as well as current scientific research. Remember that we are discussing the nutritional benefits of Cordyceps. Our discussion of scientific research does not constitute a medical claim.
“Found in pristine high altitude locations in Nepal and China, Cordyceps mushrooms are used in China to promote stamina, endurance and sex drive.* Cordyceps has gained much attention in the West since the early 1990’s, when Chinese track athletes shattered world records and revealed that Cordyceps was an important part of their training regimen. Since that time Cordyceps has been embraced by a growing number of endurance athletes worldwide. Cordyceps was traditionally reputed as a precious longevity-supporting herb, but now considered a mushroom, is widely recognized for its energy and cardio support.*”

347 – How to Choose a Quality CBD Product

In this interview with Dr. Jason Mitchell we will discuss the challenge that consumers face when shopping for a CBD product. Fortunately there are numerous quality oriented companies that produce high quality CBD products. Unfortunately there are many more companies that are questionable on any number of criteria. The CBD industry is woefully under-regulated by FDA. This has resulted in an industry that is filled with questionable products.

How can a customer identify good products from reputable companies? The only solution I know is to examine each company carefully. This is not an easy thing to do for the average customer. That’s one of the reason we do that for you here at In this interview we will take a closer look at Hemp Fusion. Dr. Mitchell discusses in detail the Hemp Fusion process. This is one of the quality companies that we have profiled for you.
