354 – Why Many Doctors Are Wrong About Probiotics

In this interview with Ross Pelton (the Natural Pharmacist) we are going to explore a recent piece published in the prestigious Journal of The American Medical Association (JAMA) which effectively disparages the entire probiotic industry. This is a perfect example of the collusion of the medical industry to first disparage an entire segment of the nutritional industry and then attempt to turn those products into drugs. This article discourages practitioners from recommending conventional probiotics. Doctors trust medical journals to keep them informed and when articles like this are published by JAMA, doctors assume it must be true. It is poorly placed trust.

348 – Cordyceps for Stamina, Endurance and Sex Drive*

In this interview with Mark Kaylor, we will discuss Cordyceps. Cordyceps is very interesting as it is a fungus that grows on the head of a caterpillar. (Who discovers these things?) 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 HealthQuestPodcast.com. 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.
