Cannabidiol aka CBD - a Legal Way to Get the Many Health Benefits of Cannabis such as Anti-seizure, Anti-inflammation, Anti-tumor, Antioxident, Antinausea

What is Cannabidiol(CBD)?

What is Cannabidiol?

"Cannabinoids are a class of chemical compounds that act on specialized cellular receptors in both animals and humans. Cannabinoids originating from plants are called phytocannabinoids. The two most researched thus far are delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive compound of cannabis and cannabidiol (CBD). There are currently 85 different cannabinoids isolated from the cannabis sativa species including hemp and marijuana. The hemp plant has significantly more CBD compared to marijuana, with CBD representing up to 40% of the total cannabinoids in this plant. 3

Hemp, unlike marijuana, is the major plant commercial source for CBD extracts. CBD is produced by the hemp plant in the form of a sticky resin produced in specialized glands located on young leaves, twigs and buds of the plant. The CBD-containing resin is a source of antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and numerous other protective molecules (that will be discussed) for the growth and reproductive functions of the plant.7 Extracts obtained from hemp's resin are used to make concentrated CBD produced and sold as a legal non-psychoactive nutritional supplement.”(Nutritional & Medical Applications for Cannabidiol: Hemp Health Benefits without THC R)

CBD's Many Health Benefits;

Anti-inflammatory

CBD receptors in the body regulate inflammation in the body and studies on CBD show that it is has potent anti-inflammatory properties;

"Anti-inflammatory effect is several hundred times more potent than aspirin when measured in standard animal tests and isolated cell assays;"(Nutritional & Medical Applications for Cannabidiol: Hemp Health Benefits without THC R)
"A 2012 study published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine found that CBD significantly suppressed chronic inflammatory and neuropathic pain in rodents"(R)

Anti-epileptic/Anticonvulsive/Antiseizure

The use of cannabis for epilepsy goes back to 1881. Here is a quote from the 1881 book "Epilepsy and other chronic convulsive diseases : their causes, symptoms, & treatment"

"Ext. cannabis indica (was administered) three times a day, was then ordered ; the fits ceased at once,
' a wonderful change ' the patient declared. He had no fit for six months, and then, having discontinued attendance, the fits recurred, but were at once arrested by the same dose of Indian hemp. He continued free from fits for some months, until, during my absence, bromide was substituted for the Indian hemp : the fits immediately recurred, and he left off treatment. He returned to the hospital in six months' time, and on Indian hemp passed two months without an attack."(R)

"Human studies have been equivocal:
In a double-blind study Cunha et al (1980) evaluated CBD for intractable epilepsy in 16 grand-mal patients. Each patient received 200 to 300 mg daily of CBD or placebo along with antiepileptic drugs continued up to 4-months. In the treatment group 7 of 8 responded with fewer seizures. In the placebo group 1 of 8 responded with fewer seizures
In a human study of intractable epilepsy with 12 subjects, Ames et al (19862 14 were unable to duplicate these results and participants showed no response to CBD
In 2012, in a review of 3 studies that exclusively used CBD for intractable seizures, Hill et al found that wo of the three demonstrated significant anti-seizure effects
In 2014 Insys Therapeutics (USA) was granted orphan drug designation for its pharmaceutical CBD for the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) and two rare forms of epilepsy, Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome and Dravet Syndrome. GW Pharmaceuticals has also been given the same designation for a CBD drug for Dravet Syndrome in children.
Neuroprotective10,32
In experimental models activation of CB2 receptors (the receptors primarily associated with CBD) CBD has delayed progression of neurodegenerative events, in particular, those related to the toxic influence of microglial cells (excessive immune response) on neuronal homeostasis33. "

Neuroprotective-Protects the brain from concussion damage

Studies have shown CBD to both protect the brain from damage if given before a concussion and also to speed healing after a concusion. The Pittburg Steelers are now using CBD to help protect their players from concusions.
One of the main causes of brain damage after a concusion is caused by inflammation. CBD's anti-inflammatory properties help protect the brain from the damage caused by this inflammation. A study in Current Pharmaceutical Design showed

"Cannabinoids of all classes have the ability to protect neurons from a variety of insults that are believed to underlie delayed neuronal death after traumatic brain injury (TBI), including excitotoxicity, calcium influx, free radical formation and neuroinflammation."(R)

Dr  Joseph Maroon the neuroseurgeon for the Pittburg Steelers is using CBD to protect the players from brain injury. He wrote the report "Nutritional & Medical Applications for Cannabidiol: Hemp Health Benefits without THC", in it he discusses the neuroprotective effects of cannibidiol;

"In experimental models activation of CB2 receptors (the receptors primarily associated with CBD) CBD has delayed progression of neurodegenerative events, in particular, those related to the toxic influence of microglial cells (excessive immune response) on neuronal homeostasis.
CBD has been shown to reduce glutamate toxicity of the brain.
CBD can reduce oxidative damage from glutamate via antioxidant effects
Neuroprotective benefits of CBD are reported to be greater than those of vitamin C and vitamin E. "

Anti-Cancer

Cannabinoids including CBD offer potential applications as antitumor drugs, based on the ability to limit inflammation, cell proliferation, and cell survival;
In particular, emerging evidence suggests that agonists of cannabinoid receptors expressed by tumor cells may offer a novel strategy to treat cancer;
GW Pharmaceuticals (UK) has preclinical data and has been approved for a human trial for GBM using submaximal doses of THC and CBD along with temozolomide (TMZ). This pharmaceutical THC and CBD has produced a strong antitumoral action in both TMZsensitive and TMZ-resistant tumors, and will be therapeutically exploited for the management of GBM. 38

Here is paper which goes over the anti-cancer effects of CBD on various forms of cancer https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3579246/

Antioxident

In a study 7 of 8 patients given CBD had fewer siezures
"In a double-blind study Cunha et al (1980) evaluated CBD for intractable epilepsy in 16 grand-mal patients. Each patient received 200 to 300 mg daily of CBD or placebo along with antiepileptic drugs continued up to 4-months. In the treatment group 7 of 8 responded with fewer seizures. In the placebo group 1 of 8 responded with fewer seizures "

“In the 1970's CBD's anticonvulsive effects in humans were discovered. Later, other studies have shown anti-nausea, anti-anxiety, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects as well as other disease specific benefits. “(R)

Helps in reducing marijuana use

Extracts from interview with Stuart Tomc from CV Sciences "Stuart Tomc, Cannabinoid Educator: Staying in Step With
the State of Research
";

 

“We have 2 primary endocannabinoid receptors and they are known as cannabinoid receptors 1 and 2, or CB1 and CB2. These are G protein–coupled receptors and they are located in the central and the peripheral nervous system; white blood cells; adipocytes, or fat cells; the liver; and bone. These receptor sites—and this whole system—are involved in learning and synaptic plasticity, immune regulation, appetite and pain, metabolic health and insulin sensitivity, and myriad other things.”

“The low-hanging fruit(health benefits from CBD) is really in pain, inflammation, anxiety, and neuroprotection. Those are areas where there is great interest—also in post-traumatic stress disorder.”

Summary of the Actions of CBD

CBD has been studied and found in both in vivo and in vitro studies to exert anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-nausea, anti-emetic, anti-psychotic, anti-ischemic, anxiolytic and anti-epileptic actions that may offer significant human health benefits.

Anti-inflammatory
CBD — analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect mediated by dual COX and LOX Inhibition;  Anti-inflammatory effect is several hundred times more potent than aspirin when measured in standard animal tests and isolated cell assays;
CBD, like THC, also stimulates the release of prostaglandin E2 (anti-inflammatory) from synovial cells and, like THC, inhibits leukotriene B4 synthesis in human WBCs;
Topical CBD Cream shown to reduce acne by reducing sebum overproduction, unwanted sebocyte proliferation and inflammation.

Analgesic Effects
Modulates immune response — anti-inflammatory and reduces WBC-mediated cytokine action;
Blocks peripheral nerve fibers — used for multiple sclerosis spasticity and associated neuropathic pain;
CBD, unlike morphine, effective at relieving chemotherapy-induced neuropathic pain with no psycho-active effects.

Anti-nausea, Anti-emetic & Gastrointestinal Benefits
Direct action on gut smooth muscle;
Inhibits acetylcholine induced contractions in the isolated mouse ileum;
Effective to suppress nausea and vomiting;

Anti-proliferative actions in human colorectal carcinoma;
Prevents oxidative stress intestinal epithelial cells. Anxiolytic.
Animal models and healthy human volunteers, demonstrate anxiolytic-like effects of CBD;
CBD reduces anxiety in clinical patients with social anxiety disorder;
Countered THC-induced anxiety effects.

Anti-epileptic
Human studies have been equivocal:
In a double-blind study Cunha et al (1980) evaluated CBD for intractable epilepsy in 16 grand-mal patients.

A Powerful Natural Immune Booster - d-Lenolate Olive Leaf Extract

The East Park Research company has done extensive testing of the beneficial immune boosting properties of olive leaf extract. This research shows that it is one of the best natural anti-viral and anti-bacterial  supplements available. Their patented extract process is the key to why their form of olive leaf extract, d-Lenolate is the most potent. Below are some of the studies that have been done on olive leaf extract.

d-Lenolate® Studies and Research

Several significant studies have been made and published documenting the powerful correlation of both Olive Leaf Extract and specifically d-Lenolate to a myriad of life threatening viral and bacterial diseases. The following are studies and research of highly defining studies that document in two distinct methodologies the effectiveness and efficacy of d-Lenolate®.

Studies & Research:

  • ·         Immune Building
  • ·         Herpes Simplex I
  • ·         Safety Testing
  • ·         In Vitro HSV-1 Testing
  • ·         B. Anthracis
  • ·         Influenza & Extra Cellular Bacterial Infection
  • ·         Microbial Infections (E.coli, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa, Yeast)
  • ·         Antimicrobial Activities of d-Lenolate®
  • ·         Candida Albicans
  • ·         Arthritis
  • ·         Prosiasis, Crohns Disease, Candida
  • ·         HIV Virus
  • ·         West Nile Virus

 

Immune Building

The purpose of this study was to test the immune effects of d-Lenolate® in healthy volunteers at the Department of Cytogenetics and Immunology of NICS. This study examines the effect of 21 days of d-Lenolate® treatment on the immune parameters of healthy volunteers.

Study: The effect of d-Lenolate® on the Immune Parameters in Humans

Findings: d-Lenolate® showed a potential immune building response along with the ability to fight off weak, solid, and strong bacterial stimuli.

 

Herpes Simplex I

East Park Research, in a coordinated effort with one of the foremost research Universities in the world, has been testing its Topical for the past two years on various skin conditions to determine its efficacy in a scientific clinical environment.

Study: d-Lenolate®, Aloe, and Neem Tissue Culture Experiments

Findings: It was shown at the conclusion of this first phase of testing that Oleuropein has a direct improving effect on cold sores, also known as Type I Herpes. It was shown to assist in the healing of human tissue where Herpes symptoms are present.

The findings, using tissue cultures and Herpes Simplex Type I, were so positive in fact that East Park Research was encouraged to develop a safe and effective cream product for cold sores associated with Herpes Simplex I (HSV1), DELEVE. One of the most important findings was the proper concentration of each ingredient to make the most effective anti-viral solution. The inhibition of spreading is one of the very exciting properties of this final formulation.

 

Safety Testing

The cold sore formulation containing d-Lenolate® was evaluated for its safety in animals. There were no toxic effects observed.

Study: LSU Safety Report

Findings: The treated skin remained clear of inflammation and redness and all animals appeared normal throughout the duration of the study. 

 

In Vitro HSV-1 Testing

d-Lenolate® was evaluated as an antiviral for effectiveness in treating herpes infections.

Study: In Vitro Anti-HSV-1 Activities of d-Lenolate® at Different Concentrations

Findings: Treatment of mice infected with virulent human strain of herpes simplex virus type-I (HSV-1) with formulation containing a higher concentration of d-Lenolate® and other compounds resulted in highly significant protection of mice against all disease outcomes including substantial decrease in animals with herpes symptoms.

 

B. Anthracis

Dr. Sergui Popov of George Mason University, a globally acknowledged expert on the study of anthrax performed a study in 2006. His protocol focuses a direct application of d-Lenolate®, to test its ‘antibiotic” properties directly on the spores.

Study: Anti-B Anthracis Activities of Olive Leaf Extract: In Vitro Study

 

Influenza & Extra Cellular Bacterial Infection

Two “animal” studies, performed by a very prominent Japanese research organization, focuses on the effects of d-Lenolate® on the body’s immune system and how the enhanced immune system then eradicates some of the world’s most deadly viruses and bacteria.

Studies: Enhanced Resistance against Influenza Virus by Treatment with Dietary supplement d-Lenolate® in Neutropenic Mice Induced by Cyclophosphamide 

Findings: d-Lenolate® appears to be a successful treatment for influenza and extra cellular bacterial infection. It is particularly useful as preventative treatment prior to exposure and as a treatment to enhance healing in exposed and immunocompromised mice.

 

Microbial Infections (E.coli, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa, Yeast)

d-Lenolate®, was evaluated as a protective agent against two bacterial species in mice: E.coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa; and the yeast, Candida albicans.

Study: Therapeutic Effect of d-Lenolate® Against Experimental Infections in Immuno-compromised Mice

Findings: d-Lenolate® enhanced the restoration of white blood cells to the normal level and protected against infection with bacteria and yeast. In this study, d-Lenolate® restored PMN levels in immunocompromised mice and also enhanced clearance of E.coli from blood, both restorative effects after infection with bacteria. These two factors make d-Lenolate® a powerful protectant from infection as well as an enhancer to recovery post infection.  d-Lenolate® was able to restore immune function after treatment with all of these agents.

In this study conducted by the Japanese scientists, d-Lenolate® was able to restore antibody production after chemotherapy. Therefore, d-Lenolate® functions in the early stages of infection by enhancing PMN number and function antibody production capability of B cells. All of these d-Lenolate®-induced functions make the efficacy of cellular mechanisms in late stage influenza virus infection more successful when the immune system is depressed and at least equivalent to healthy mice responses.

 

Antimicrobial Activities of d-Lenolate®

Resistance to antimicrobials increases the fatality rate of infections, and the prolonged disease state allows greater chance for pathogenic organism to spread across the population.

Study: Antimicrobial Activity of d-Lenolate®

Findings: Recent research at University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) has revealed that d-Lenolate® demonstrates effective direct anti-microbial activity against representatives of both Gram positive and Gram negative bacterial. Expanded research also showed that d-Lenolate® is effective in inhibiting growth of several hospital-based pathogens.

 

Candida Albicans

In January of 1999, Dr. Bernard J. Mizock evaluated the efficacy of d-Lenolate®, to determine its effectiveness in reducing the burden of Candida Albicans, a single cell fungi living in the blood that confuses inter-cell communication and is the underlining cause of many ill-health problems according to the CDC.

Study: Evaluation of the Efficacy of d-Lenolate® in the Control of Symptoms of Candida Hypersensitivity Syndrome

Findings: Nystatin is the drug of choice and in a 32 week study did 2% better than placebo while d-Lenolate® reduced the symptoms by greater than 50% in 60 days with no apparent side effects. East Park believes that with the appropriated testing, d-Lenolate® will be proven to be a powerful treatment for many common ailments.

 

Arthritis

d-Lenolate® was used by Dr. Mizock in a second study to record the modifications of symptoms related to arthritic symptoms. Using the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Arthritis (WOMAC) index, scores were obtained during the period of September 2000 to January 2001 at baseline, 20, 40 and 60 days. 

Study: Effects of d-Lenolate® in Modifying Symptoms of Arthritis

Findings: Dr. Mizock concluded that East Park’s d-Lenolate® improves the symptoms of arthritis.  The effects were first noted at 20 days, and reach a maximum effect of 32% improvement at 40 days.

 

Psoriasis, Crohn’s Disease, Candida

In 2002, the Chief of Medicine at Budapest General Hospital noted that his experience with fighting infection by prescribing d-Lenolate® had reach a success rate of 90 percent and had been using d-Lenolate® before resorting to any antibiotics.

 

HIV Virus

Two in-vitro tests were performed in 2007 by a group of prominent biochemists associated with some of the most prominent research institutions in the world, including NYU School of medicine, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Harvard Medical School. These tests focused on the use of Oleuropein as an inhibitor of the HIV virus. One of these tests was executed under a grant by the National Institute of Health.

Findings: Both of studies concluded that Oleuropein is an effective inhibitor of the HIV virus and that under certain conditions a “complete inhibition” occurred.

 

West Nile Virus

Upon the West Nile Virus epidemic in the United States, a study was conducted to determine the in-vitro anti-West Nile Virus (WNV) activities of d-Lenolate at different concentrations.

Study: Effects of d-Lenolate® in combating the West Nile Virus

Findings: The d-Lenolate filtrate demonstrated anti-WNV activity at higher concentrations. The effect decreased with increasing dilutions.

Black Cumin Seed aka Black Seed - an ancient remedy with many amazing properties

An ancient remedy that has been in use for over 2000 years, black cumin seed, also known simply as black seed is an immune boosting remedy(study) that has been used for asthma, infections, eczema, headaches, diabetes, hypertension and coughs.

Black seed contains a natural chemical called Thymoquinone which is a large part of the bio-active components of the essential oil.

In traditional medicine it is used to stimulate the body's own "healing energy" to build resistance to illness and recover from fatigue. 

Black seed has been tested to inhibit the growth of staph bacteria was well as gram-negative bacteria.(R)(R)

Black Cumin oil is also a potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-histamine. Studies have shown that the Thymoquinone in black seed inhibits inflammatory cytokines.(R

Black Cumin seed has been traditionally used as a remedy for diabetes. A study showed that an extract of black seed was able to lower blood sugar.(R

Some of the other health benefits of black cumin seed is that it is neuro-protective, it can have a anti-seizure effect, it can protect from ionizing radiation and can help people with opioid addictions.

Black seed also has anti-anxiety and anti-depressant properties.

Studies on black seed have also shown it can assist in weight loss in men with obesity.(R)

As you can see, this is a potent and versatile natural medicinal seed. Click here to view available formulas online. 

 

5-HTP - A natural antidepressant that works with your own body. Increases serotonin levels

Low levels of serotonin found in the brains of people with depression

depression

Serotonin levels have been shown to affect depression. People who chronically have depression tend to have lower levels of serotonin in the brain. This is why serotonin uptake inhibitors are prescribed to increase the levels of serotonin. 

5-HTP is a way of increasing your bodies own production of serotonin. 5-HTP is a precursor of serotonin so your body can use it to quickly produce serotonin. 

 5-HTP is also a precursor of melatonin, so it can also be used to more gently go to sleep than the flood of melatonin caused by taking a pure melatonin supplement.

Studies have shown that low levels of serotonin contribute to mood and impulse control disorders. (R) This relates to impulse control with diet as well.

carbs

Serotonin can affect eating habits, especially impulse carb eating

Carbohydrates can increase serotonin release and this is what leads to "carb craving". 5-HTP supplementation can block this craving by increasing serotonin levels.

Serotonin affects many parts of the body including normal cardiovascular function. 

The Serotonin system affects people with ADHD

hyper kid

A study showed that families that have a defect in serotonin(5-HT(1B)) receptors have a susceptibility to ADHD.(R)

Another study shows the relation in the serotonin/dopamine system and ADHD. "studies however provide evidence for separate contributions of altered dopamine (DA) and serotonin (5-HT) function in this disorder"(R)

Contraindications of 5-HTP - High levels of 5-HTP have shown to cause nausea and diarrhea. These are usually at levels above 900mg. We suggest using a slow time release or low level 5-HTP supplement.

One of the most promising and controversial nutrients on the market today is Cannabidiol (CBD).

Read about CBD and see below for an exclusive offer on CBD products. 

Many customers have personally reported great results with neurological issues such as Parkinson's, seizures & anxiety. Studies have been done on it’s effects on seizures & social anxiety.

Promising studies have been done with CBD on many forms of cancer such as lung cancer and brain tumors.
https://www.medicaljane.com/cannabinoid/cbd/

CBD reduces cancer cells ability to produce energy which results in their death. Link

CBD has shown anti-tumor qualities, as this study shows in the case of breast and prostate tumors. 

CBD is an anti-inflammatory. Here is a quote from a study done on the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD;
“This review discusses recent studies suggesting that cannabidiol may have utility in treating a number of human diseases and disorders now known to involve activation of the immune system and associated oxidative stress, as a contributor to their etiology and progression. These include rheumatoid arthritis, types 1 and 2 diabetes, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer disease, hypertension, the metabolic syndrome, ischemia-reperfusion injury, depression, and neuropathic pain.”

The mechanism is through the body’s own cannibinoid system. “Growing evidence suggests that the endocannabinoid system, which includes the CB₁ and CB₂ G-protein-coupled receptors and their endogenous lipid ligands, may be an area that is ripe for therapeutic exploitation.”

Happy Light - Light therapy lamp - Remedy the winter blues


The Verilux Happy Light





The sun in a lot of ways is wonderful for you but a lot of the time people don’t give the credit the sun deserves. It’s what generates so much life to this world. When you think of the sun today you think about the harm it can do to us personally. These two main rays the sun puts off that can hurt us are UVA which is long wave ultraviolet A and UVB short wave ultraviolet B. These two wave lengths the sun puts off can do a lot of negative things to our bodies such as age our skin faster, burn all the way to the dermis layer of our skin (which is the thickest layer of your skin), can usually burn the superficial layer of skin, are the main cause of skin cancer, can effect our eyes in ways that cause cataracts, lower your immune system, and takes away vitamin A in your skin (by the way cool fact that most people in the world are deficient in vitamin A). Yes these two rays are HORRIBLE for you! But, that’s not what this post is all about. it’s actually about the GOOD things the sun gives to us and how we can some how add them into our day to day life with out the sun! How Amazing is that!? Think about it, if you could some how take away these horrible ultraviolet rays and get just the good wave lengths of the sun, would you do it? it’s a no brainier, I know I would and DID!

I’m sure your wondering what I’m talking about but before I announce this amazing product we have in our store I want to tell you a little about the background science of it so you can have a feel of how beneficial this thing can be in your life. First off lets talk about white light, what is white light? White light is electromagnetic radiation of all frequencies in the visible range of the light spectrum which puts of a “white appearance” to the eye. Now, what does this crazy white light do for us? Well, white light does a lot for us such as, it functions both as an antioxidant and an antitoxin, its a major defense system against illness and aging/ slows down the aging process, it detoxifies and improves liver function, strengthens the immune system, reduces the change of developing cancer, works to help improve mental functions, increase energy, improves concentration, improves heart and lung function, and can provide good oral hygiene. WOW, this light does a lot for you! How can one thing promote so much beneficial proprieties? Now to find something that can take this one light and put it into something we can have portable and able to have in our home or at work. THE VERILUX HAPPY LIGHT! Yes, this amazing lamp gives off nothing but white light! Right when you turn it on I personally feel this fluttery happy feeling in my chest as if I’m about to be excited about something. I almost feel the need to jump for joy with how much happiness this light gives me.

The Happy Light simply works!

At first I didn’t believe this thing worked, how can some random table lamp make you feel good and promote health in so many ways? When I saw this product it almost made me laugh and I immediately thought this was a scam, a placebo effect, a joke, lie, silly, stupid, out of this world, far fetch, I can go on with what my mind was thinking. So as you can probably tell I didn’t feel the need to buy this silly contraption but I kept having more and more people asking about them and saying how amazing they are. Me being a Manager in retail I’m of course nodding my head saying yea this is a great product I love it when I really think otherwise. So weeks, went by that turned into months and I have yet to feel the need or want to get one but the more people came in asking about it the more I was intrigued to figure out what was the cats meow about this lamp. I started asking around with friends I know that have used these lights and would swear by them and some friends have told me that the light can honestly be to much and make you feel too good, others say you have to get use to the brightness but its amazing. The silly thing about all of this is that I refused to try this light out this whole time! I never once opened a box to turn it on and see if it really worked. I guess I was just being to pessimistic and negative about it that I felt trying it out would be useless. If I’m going to be 100% honest with my customers about why I ended up with one of these things in my home its because of a small little life I have that needs these positive properties to keep it living. My sun conure lady bird is a little bird who if you don’t know anything about birds NEED a full spectrum bulb to be happy and healthy! So I thought “why not give this light a try since it is a full spectrum light”. I brought it home, turned it on, and those feelings I said in the begging of fluttery happy giddiness came threw me like a flash of lightning! I was kicked off my feet, blown away, amazed, dumb founded, astonished, this crazy happy light works!!!! I have never in my life had something give me so much joy so instantly that I almost couldn’t take it! The Happy Light by Verilux almost feels like your being forced to be in a good mood, it helps keep you awake if your feeling tired and its easy to sleep with it on in a big room.

The light it gives off is so much nicer than the horrible yellow orange color normal bulbs give off. Normal lights tend to almost give me headaches also florescent lights tend to give me migraines behind my eyes but this light, I feel no negative affects from it even if I were to stare into it, although I wouldn’t want to because of how bright this thing is. It does have a high level and a low level but its not to big of a difference. The low level gives off not as much as a shine as the higher level does. I have a 5000 watt, its not that big, fits nicely in the corner of my desk and easily portable it lights up a 600 square feet room nicely and it can also be put in a smaller area and not feel like its to much, if it does to you It’ll take a few days of getting use to but its well worth it.

From being a pessimistic person about the Verilux Happy Light and turning into an optimistic customer unexpectedly, I highly recommend this product to anyone that gets the winter blues, sits at a desk for 40 hours, have kids who get sick often, depressed or seem tired regularly, honestly this light is meant for you! Buy it, try it out, see how it changes your life like it did with mine!

Eliminate the winter blues with the Happy Light!

A powerful brain booster and mood enhancer. E3 Live Brain-On

E3 Live Brain-On is live-frozen Blue Green Algae that also contains brain boosting extracts of Phenylethylamine and Phycocyanin which are already in the blue green algae but the added concentrate gives it a powerful effect. It has a double effect of enhancing cognition and improving mood at the same time. I really feel great after taking it. I remember when first I tried it, I was blown away by the double effect of mental clarity increase and an almost euphoric feeling it brings.

 

Phenylethylamine(PEA)

Phenylethylamine HCL is a neurotransmitter and is used for brain stimulation, elevated mood, promoting feelings of wellbeing mental clarity, increased concentration and even weight loss because it is also a appetite supressent. Within the brain it causes the release of dopamine and norepinephrine, which contribute to sexual drive, mental attention and alertness. It can even lead to feeling euphoria and giddiness!

Phenylethlamine has been referred to as the “love drug” because it is released by the brain when you feel love.

It is considered an effective treatment for depression, attention deficit disorder(ADHD), and Parkinson’s disease. Phenylethylamine has also been used to treat arthritis and alcohol withdrawal.

Phycocyanin

A blue colored protein found in Klamath blue green algae which gives E3 Live Brain-on it’s bluish tint. This powerful health building material helps the body to produce stem cells which can rejuvenate the body and speed healing.
