416 – Immune Support and the Endocannabinoid System

“Think of your immune system as an internal network of cells, organs, tissue, chemicals, proteins, enzymes, and hormones that fight off infections and foreign invasions of viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungi, etc. Your immune system is always at the ready and monitoring your body’s health like a military detail protecting a physical border. When your immune system senses infection or bodily invasion, it will send antibodies or secrete chemicals in the body to help defend it.

Your immune system is usually on duty or activated without you even realizing it. If you have ever had a cold, fever, or mild inflammation, then those are good signs that your immune system is activated and working. Those are physical signs and evidence that your immune system is healthy, as unpleasant as the experience may have been.

415 – 22 Interviews on Aged Garlic Extract

I have interviewed many of the experts and researchers who have discovered the wonderful benefits of Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract. With over 900 studies there is plenty to discuss.

When you want to know the answer to this question; “How do we know that a supplement works?” look to the science. It is through the modern scientific inquiry that we have confidence in what nutrition can do. Just remember to use the products that were used in the studies. Don’t assume that any other garlic has the same benefits. You can always ask for any studies on any product that interests you. Be careful with ‘borrowed science’.

414 – Is Delta-8 THC a Dietary Supplement?

In this interview, Dr. Douglas Kalman discusses some of the legal and regulatory issues regarding Delta-8 THC. He will contrast the differences between CBD and Delta-8 THC derived from hemp. Is it legal on a federal and or state level? It does seem that FDA is beginning to take some action towards Delta-8 THC.

Many people think that anything derived from hemp is now legal because of the 2018 farm bill. Dr. Kalman discusses the distinctions and what consumers need to know. It seems confusing because many make assumptions that are not necessarily true.

413- What is the Most Effective Probiotic and Why?

In this interview with Ross Pelton we will discuss probiotics and postbiotic metabolites. Specifically we will discuss Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotic and contrast that with common and conventional probiotics. Safe to say there is a huge distinction to be made.

The popularization of probiotics in the marketplace has led to the commoditization and of cheap and largely ineffective probiotics. This has also led to many consumers being confused as to how to choose a quality product. This is the story of Dr. Ohhira and his development of his innovative probiotic supplements. Dr. Ohhira’s probiotic is unique and stands alone.

410 – The Elegance of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

Previously, mitochondria have been thought of as the ‘powerhouse of the cell,’ more like an engine. The study represents a ‘theoretical shift’ in how mitochondria are understood to facilitate future discoveries across scientific disciplines. The study indicates that “intelligence” and “consciousness” are tied more to the mitochondrial organelles inside cells than they are to the brain itself.
What we have found is that mitochondria are configurable around DIET and ENVIRONMENT. This is great news because as we learn more, we will learn better ways to optimize the performance of mitochondria, create more of them, and functionally access and optimize mitochondria using safe natural processes.

407 – What You Need to Know about Hemp CBD Regulation

I have been interested in CBD beginning in 2014. I have followed its evolution into the marketplace. In 45 years as part of the nutritional products industry, I have never witness anything close to the explosion and growth of the hemp and CBD industry. I have done many interviews with experts in the CBD business and these continue to be some of the most downloaded podcasts.

In this interview Asa Waldstein will explain how CBD is regulated and how consumers can identify trustworthy companies and products. Asa describes some of the challenges faced by companies as well.

The challenges are significant. CBD is regulated one way by FDA and states regulate CBD in variety of ways. The quality and potency of CBD products is all over the place with many products being unreliable for numerous reasons. Asa also gives us numerous resources that will help give clarity.

406 – Inflammation is NOT a disease

In this interview, Dr. Russell Jaffe used a phrase that conceptually made a lot of sense in a few words. He said “Inflammation is Repair Deficit.” This simple sounding phrase is a profound statement that leads to seeking how to facilitate repair in the body.

Inflammation is not a disease. It is a result of the body’s attempt to heal. When we use targeted nutrition, we are giving the body the specific nutrients to facilitate repair. Dr. Jaffe’s research has led to our understanding of the role of specific antioxidants for inflammation repair.

“Inflammation is like a smoldering fire that eventually eats through the fiber of our being. Because it affects the connective tissue infrastructure upon which our bodies are built, repair deficits can occur in any part of the body that is stressed, lacking in nutrients, or more exposed to toxins. This makes inflammation an underlying co-morbidity for many ills
