CBD+1500 Mouth Spray

Purium has released a progressive new sublingual spray called CBD+. Every bottle contains 1500mg of hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) and blends full-spectrum hemp seed oil with CBD extract.  Not only has CBD become a leading trend in the wellness community, but so have sublingual sprays. This product has quickly become a forerunner in the race for creating natural supplements that are pure, safe and effective. 

We know that this news may surprise some of you, so let’s chat facts! First Things First: 

When people hear “CBD,” they may think of marijuana’s mind-altering effects, but this isn’t accurate. In the words of Dave Sandavol, “Hemp is NOT – I repeat, NOT POT.”

Marijuana contains a psychoactive compound, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), that is responsible for brain fog, euphoria, delayed reactions and the feeling of being “high.” By contrast, hemp-derived CBD has been used to reduce the psychoactive effects of THC!  They look similar but are very different.  CBD StudiesAlthough studies of CBD are relatively new, substantial discoveries have been documented to show its success as a form of therapy for many kinds of health functions.

Medical doctors, pain relief clinics and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) treatment centers are all showing interest in this using this wellness product.   Pure + PremiumOur mission to provide pure and premium products continues with CBD+ sublingual spray. Providing the best Mother Nature has to offer, in the quickest and most effective way. At 50mg per serving, the oral spray is based in organic full-spectrum hemp seed oil. This product is intended for adults, so please consult a physician before administering to a minor.

Here’s to pushing the envelope of health innovation and improving our bodies with nature’s purest gifts.

A Special Report on Vitamin D

That One Critical Nutrient Your Multivitamin May Not Have Enough of

Did you know that vitamin D is not really a vitamin?  Vitamin D is actually turned into a hormone by the body.  This hormone is called “activated vitamin D” or “calcitriol.”

Your body will make vitamin D when exposed to sunlight.

Vitamin D
Vitamin D found to influence over 200 genes, highlighting links to disease

I grew up in Washington State where it always seemed to rain a lot.  As a kid I was forced to take cod liver oil as a supplement.  I was too young to figure out why at the time, but it contained vitamin D and I wasn’t getting enough of it.  This was to help my bones as well as to prevent rickets.   Research is now showing that vitamin D may be a very important part of treating a whole list of serious long term health problems.

It is estimated that 75% of Americans are deficient in this vitamin

Yet, experts estimate that adequate supplementation with this nutrient can reduce your risk of developing cancer by up to 77%, and cut your risk of developing heart disease by as much as 53%.

You may be wondering what is this incredibly important nutrient that can reduce your risk of cancer and heart disease, but is not included in sufficient amounts in virtually any of the multivitamins out there?

It’s actually a vitamin that our bodies can produce, yet most of us don’t have enough of.

You may have guessed it – it’s vitamin D.

The problem with ALL multivitamins on the market is that they don’t have enough of the “sunshine vitamin”.

You see, most multivitamins only include the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of the various vitamins and minerals. 

The RDA is a minimum number set by the government to ensure people don’t develop acute vitamin deficiency diseases like scurvy, pellagra, and beriberi.

Personally, I am not interested in merely surviving — I want to thrive. I want to enjoy OPTIMAL health.

Therefore I take MORE than the minimal amount of each vitamin. 

And so should YOU.

To achieve OPTIMAL health, you need to take the OPTIMAL amounts of vitamin D.

Currently the RDA (minimum amount) for vitamin D is set at 400 IU.  

They haven’t revisited that number in more than 20 years.  

When these numbers were set in the mid-1990s, most members of the medical community didn’t look at vitamin D as being all that important.  

They agreed we needed some of it to aid in the absorption of calcium in order to maintain strong bones and healthy teeth. 

Here’s the problem with the amounts, though… 

In the last 10 years, numerous studies around the world have shown that vitamin D is a lot more important than we once thought.  

In fact, it could very well be THE most important vitamin there is.  

It reduces the risk of developing most cancers. 

It fights heart disease, diabetes and bone loss. 

It cuts the risk of developing multiple sclerosis. 

How?

By unlocking over 200 DNA blueprints needed by your body’s cells for growth and immunity. 

But don’t take my word for it. See the results of the latest research from the Department of Medicine at the University of Oxford in the UK: 

What does this mean for you?

It means that supplementing with vitamin D can help keep you healthy for much longer. It will also greatly reduce the risk of developing debilitating diseases.

There are no shortcuts. 

Lying out in the sun exposing your entire body to sunlight will absolutely raise your vitamin D levels. 

There are, however, risks that could counter the effect of any vitamin D you create doing that.  

Risks like sunburn and skin cancer to name just two. 

Getting some sun is fine. In fact, it’s a great idea.  

Just be smart about it and give your body the proper support with a good vitamin D supplement.

Evaluating the vitamin

Why are there so many vitamin supplement companies?  Fifteen years ago, there were just a few companies on the market.  Once I started my research on vitamins, there were suddenly hundreds, or even thousands, of vitamin nutritional companies available.  How would anyone begin to choose what would be right for them?

Today, it is so easy to get caught up in the media, the hype, the fads that we see on TV, and who is sponsoring what product.  With the internet, we can research every company until our eyes cross.  If any information is on the internet, then it is obviously “true” because it has been written down in black and white.  Whenever an endorsement from an athlete, actor, or internet guru is made, then we assume that their product is the best, whether they use it or not.

First, I would like to share some government standards: (taken from http://www.globalhealingcenter.com/nutrition/all-vitamins-are-not-created-equal)

FACT: A consumer would assume that a vitamin contains the potency listed on the label.

GOVERNMENT STANDARD: Only 90% of the vitamin potency listed on the label has to be in a product at the time of shipping.

FACT: A vitamin starts losing its potency the minute it’s made. If not manufactured properly, a vitamin can be up to 50% weaker than the label’s claim by the time you purchase the product.

GOVERNMENT STANDARD: There are only minimal government guidelines, not requirements, regarding product storage (light, temperature, moisture, etc.),  inventory rotation, particle granulation or product coating, all of which affect the potency and quality of a vitamin.

FACT: Even though vitamins are perishable items, manufacturers are not required to prove that their products last for an extended period of time. Remember, light, heat, moisture and oxidation rapidly destroy vitamin potency.

GOVERNMENT STANDARD: After a vitamin is manufactured, vitamin companies are not required to conduct shelf life testing to see how product potency is affected over time.

FACT: Even though vitamin supplements are essential to your health, there is no law requiring that vitamin supplements be tested during the manufacturing process.

GOVERNMENT STANDARD: A quality control laboratory is not required in a vitamin manufacturing facility.

So what kind of criteria would you use to differentiate between the various vitamin manufactures?  I used a website called http://www.multivitaminguide.org.  Using current scientific literature and peer journals, Greg Marshall compared multivitamins on four scientific criteria. The following are excerpts taken from this to evaluate vitamins:

  • Composition – Based on the fact that your body needs 13 type of vitamins and at least as many different type of minerals, Marshall followed the Optimal Daily Intake index for the most effective combinations and dosage amounts.
  • Bio-availability – Are the nutrients easily and effectively absorbed by the body and in their most absorbent forms?
  • Safety –  This should be considered first.  The supplements should not contain any harmful additives or a potential risk of overdose.
  • Store brands – Over the counter vitamins typically contain low-quality forms of nutrients and the potency of the ingredients should meet or exceed the Optimal Daily Intake index.

Although this is a guide to many popular supplements, such as Shaklee, Melaleuca, Centrum, One-A-Day, GNC, Amway, Nature Made, etc, it includes over 100 other brands.  Researchers found that the majority of vitamins and nutitional supplements you find in  stores are practically worthless and would be a waste of money.  To find the few that are truly effective and will give you highest value for your money, I suggest that you forego the hype, the endorsements, and the fads of what is “hot” on the market .  Do your own independent research and discover for yourself what would be best for you.

For me personally, after 15 years of trying many different brands and manufacturers, and using this guide to support my findings, Shaklee comes in second place with an overall score of 9.4, ranking second place.

The beginnings of an opportunity

I would have never believed it.  To hear this kind of news, you must be kidding.  I eat right, or think I do.  I’m not tremendously overweight, at least if I compare myself with the general populace. I exercise sometimes, in spite of the fact that the media tells me that I only have to do 20 minutes of vigorous exercise everyday.  I must remember that everyone has a different definition of vigorous!

About 15 years ago, my wife and I were attending a health fair at one of the local hotels.  I had been thinking more seriously about what I would look like when I got to be in my 60’s and beyond. Looking at the people around me, I realized that I was pretty healthy and really didn’t have any serious health issues (or so I thought).  Sure, I had some heart problems, my joints hurt due to a bad knee injury left over from basic training,  took Tums for my stomach after evening meals, and was pushing 200 pounds for my 6 foot frame.  Wasn’t this the norm?  Isn’t this America where it was okay to be 20-30 pounds overweight and talk about all your health issues?

It was at the health fair, that I took one of the devices you hold in your hands at chest level for a minute or so and the readout came:  OBESE.  What?  You are kidding, right?  OBESE at 26 percent body fat?  OBESE?  I didn’t like that word.  For me it was the start of my quest to be healthier.  I needed to do something about it.  But what do I do?  I had been at this weight for over 30 years!  Why would I want to change?  This was my wake-up call.  However, it wasn’t one of those instant changes where you decide to go on a crash diet by not eating, drinking only water for a week straight to get back into shape.  There was no way I was going to do that.  I had seen other people try it, and after a week of dehydration, they would typically go back to eating like they had always done as that was their “comfort zone” and they were not about make a change.

For my wife and I, it was more about taking a look at where we were, assessing the situation, and starting to make subtle changes.  I was content with my weight at that time.  I did not realize that I would be more content, as well as comfortable, if I lost  some of those extra pounds that were classifying me as “obese.”

The first thing I did was to start reading labels and counting calories.  Not that I knew anything at the time about what I was reading, but it sounded good.  The next thing was to eliminate things I didn’t really need like candy, sugar, sodas, junk food, etc.  Needless to say, just by doing that, I reduced that number of Tums I was taking every night.

The next step, I hypothesized correctly, was the need for some sort of vitamin supplementation.  There are a million different variations of nutritional vitamin supplements on the market.  Everyone advertises theirs as the best.  I started with a vitamin network marketing company that said they could prove they were the best.  They had the documentation, the doctors’ endorsements, and at the plenty of testimonies endorsing the products.

That was now the opportunity to begin a new career!
