4 Essential Features to Look for in a CBD Supplement

With all the publicity surrounding the advent of cannabidiol, or CBD, it’s only natural to ask yourself, “What’s all the excitement about, and why should I add this to my daily regimen?”

I’ve been paying close attention to CBD’s growing popularity, but before we introduced our own brand of CBD products, I wanted to make sure we could provide you with the highest quality offerings available anywhere.

As our team went through the process of determining precisely how we would formulate our products, we were laser-focused on a list of 4 must-have features. Please check them out below, but let’s first look at some reasons why so many people today view CBD supplements as a valuable tool for achieving optimum health.

CBD: An Ever-Evolving Story

As reported in Harvard Medical School’s Harvard Health Blog, “the strongest evidence for (CBD’s) effectiveness is in treating some of the cruelest childhood epilepsy syndromes.” This was confirmed in 2018 when “the FDA approved the first ever cannabis-derived medicine for these conditions.”1

In addition, perhaps recognizing the perceived value many consumers place on hemp-based supplements, “… states have legalized the sale of CBD oil, which is being used and studied for a range of health problems including: stress, anxiety, joint pain, post-traumatic stress disorder, menstrual cramps, nausea, insomnia, addiction, autism, multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune disorders, as well as schizophrenia. The oil may also have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.”2

CBD is still relatively new, and our knowledge of its effectiveness for the conditions mentioned above is an ever-evolving story. But it’s hard to ignore the increasing number of people across the U.S. and around the world that are citing positive results.

What CBD Users Are Saying

Generally, CBD users report feeling calmer and more at ease. Their blood pressure normalizes. Pain subsides. Sleep, digestion and circulation improve. People’s immune systems get stronger, and they feel happier and more content. More specifically, here are some favorable reviews posted by CBD users on WebMD3:

  • “I take CBD oil to help with chronic pain and it has changed my life! If I forget to take it for a day I can really feel how much worse my pain is.”
  • “For me, CBD simply takes away my anxiety completely. It is incredible. It doesn’t necessarily make you feel relaxed, and certainly doesn’t make you high or anything, it just makes you not anxious anymore.”
  • “I have been using this for pain from arthritis and have had amazing results.”
  • “I can’t say enough about CBD. After going to several different neurologists who kept prescribing anti-seizure meds which did not work, we began using CBD oil which provided almost instant relief.”
  • “I use CBD oil to help relieve pain from neuropathy.”

Our 4 Essential Product Features

Here’s the list of features I referred to earlier, along with reasons why you should insist on them as you navigate the maze of CBD products on the market today:

  1. Full Spectrum CBD Hemp Oil Extract – CBD is just one of many cannabinoids, and “full spectrum hemp extract” means the product contains a complete array of both cannabinoids and terpenes, compounds that work together to produce an “entourage effect” that helps bring our bodies’ systems into balance.
  • Subcritical CO2 Extraction – This unique manufacturing process makes the entourage effect possible. Subcritical means there’s no heat used during extraction, which enables all the powerful compounds – CBD, other cannabinoids and terpenes – to survive and have a positive impact on your health. Contrast that with the other popular method, supercritical CO2 extraction, which preserves only the CBD.
  • Grown in the USA – Specific standards as set forth in the 2014 and 2018 Farm Bills passed by Congress are required for legally growing, cultivating and producing industrial hemp plants. To ensure that these standards are met, it’s best to use CBD-based products from manufacturers located in the USA.
  • Independent Lab-Tested – A 2017 study from the University of Pennsylvania found that nearly 70% of CBD products sold online did not contain the concentration of CBD oil listed on the label. The team also reported that several products analyzed contained significant amounts of THC.4 That’s why it’s important to choose CBD products that are tested by a third-party lab to verify that what’s stated on the label is accurate.

I insist that any CBD product that carries the Baar logo have all of these important features. To learn more about our current offerings, click on any of the links below. Each product listing contains additional information on how plant-based cannabinoids and terpenes work together to help regulate the body’s homeostasis, or general state of balance.

Can Ioxan Prevent Alzheimer’s?

A new study1 was just released and is supporting the hypothesis that Alzheimer’s is not just a disease, it’s also an infection of the gums.2,3,4,5,6,7

Ioxan, Herbal Gum Massage - Possibly Help Prevent for alzheimer's?

This evidence is connecting the pathogen, P. gingivalis to Alzheimer’s.  This is the pathogen that causes gum disease or periodontitis.  An inflammation of the gums.  The researchers identified enzymes called “gingipains” secreted by this bacteria in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients.  These enzymes are toxic to a protein needed for normal brain and neuronal function.  In addition to that, the study found that mice with this P. gingivalis infection resulted in a brain colonization and increased production of the component of amyloid plaques.

Ioxan Salt N' Soda, Herbal Gum Massage - Possibly Help Prevent for alzheimer's?

We don’t know if Ioxan™ can prevent Alzheimer’s. But, we believe if Ioxan is capable of helping so many people with their gum conditions there is a good chance they may also be getting the benefit of a healthier mind and a longer, more joyous life.   I will continue to use Ioxan and our Ioxan Salt and Soda.

Testimonials on Ioxan:

“Since using the Ioxan, Herbal Gum Massage and Mouthrinse, my gums no longer bleed. Thank you so much!” – M.H., Covina, CA

“I’d also like to comment on item #772 Ioxan. My gum and teeth health have greatly increased.” – A.L., Libertytown, MD

“…The Ioxan is nothing short of miraculous.” – K.C., Sequim, WA

“Ioxan is the most effective gum therapy I have found.” – A.B., MD., Wheeling, WV

“I had not gone to the dentist for nearly four years and when I finally went I was told, after the cleaning, to come back in three months because my gums didn’t look healthy and that I may need a deep cleaning. For two months prior to my return I used IOXAN and was glad when told that my gums now look healthy.” – W.B. Sarasota, FL

“IOXAN … worked! I used the stuff twice a day, working it into the gum with an electric rotary toothbrush… Last week, I went for another checkup without telling the hygienist what I had done, but merely asked what the “pockets” looked like. ‘What pockets? There are none!’ No more talk of surgery and my mouth feels just fine!” – F.Z., St. Augustine, FL

“Excellent products! My husband was told he needed gum surgery. I bought IOXAN. A few months later, the dentist was amazed and said he didn’t need surgery! I gave our dentist all the info about it for other patients. He was impressed! THANKS!” – J.C., Wichita Falls, TX

Hemp’s Health Benefits for Your Mind and Body!

Hemp has been grown and used for thousands of years as a food, medicine, and fiber for textiles, paper and manufacturing. It is a nutritious plant rich in Omega fatty acids, healthy fats, minerals, vitamins and proteins. Research on it is currently ongoing for its potential anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and pain relieving properties.
 
While Hemp and marijuana come from the same plant species, Cannabis sativa, they are distinctly different plants. The most important difference to note is that marijuana contains tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”). THC is the compound responsible for the psychoactive properties of the plant. Hemp, on the other hand, is extremely low in THC. By legal definition, it cannot have more than 0.3 percent tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in it.

Hemp seed oil’s unique nutritional content offer numerous health benefits. Its Hemp Oil, Organic, 8 fl. oz.unique composition of Omega fatty acids moisturize and nourish skin, promote healthy looking hair, relieve dry, flaking scalp, support heart health, and provide excellent nutrition for the eyes and brain… and more.

Sulflax: A Remedy For Stimulating Eliminations

Sulflax, Healthy Elimination Powder FormulaThe formula name, Sulflax, was created by combining the name of one of its key ingredients and its function. It contains the prefix “sulf” (sulfur) and “lax” (laxative), its remedial purpose.

Enhancing better eliminations is a major component for achieving better health – part of Dr. Harold J. Reilly’s C.A.R.E. formula: Circulation, Assimilation, Relaxation, Elimination. While some laxatives are considered too harsh for some systems, he did offer other means of assisting and stimulating eliminations. This particular formula is one such remedy, and it is recommended to individuals from the ages of 21 months to 74 years.

Amount and Frequency

Taking Sulflax® can extend from once per day for 2 to 3 days, up to as long as 2 weeks; the suggested use is in the middle range of this spread–from 3 to 7 days. Some are advised to take Sulflax in a series, such as 3 to 5 days, rest 5 days, then repeat. With just a few exceptions, it is to be taken daily in the morning before breakfast; for some every other day is suitable, and for a few twice a day–morning and evening–is recommended. It can be taken either dry or mixed in a glass of water, while a few mention warm or hot water. Some customers state that they added it to syrup or honey.

The length of time recommended for taking Sulflax often depended upon one’s reaction to it, so that once eliminations have begun, it can be discontinued. Ten days and 2 weeks is the longest recommended time for taking Sulflax consistently. As mentioned earlier, it can be taken in a series, with rest periods in between repetitions.

Expected Effects from Using Sulflax

As to the purpose of the remedy, it is a purifier and cleanser for the body–for the circulatory and digestive systems as well as a stimulant for the elimination system. In its role as a mild laxative, it not only will increase the eliminations and set up the better assimilating forces for the body, but it will also cleanse and purify the alimentary canal (the passageway extending from the mouth to the anus through which food is processed and digested).

Additional Information

Poor eliminations may be the indirect or direct cause of various physical ailments for which Dr. Reilly’s patients asked for help. It is always advisable to seek advice from a health professional when beginning a new regimen of treatment.

It’s important to keep in mind that very rarely is only one item suggested for a particular health problem. Other remedies, such as osteopathic adjustments, the three-day apple diet, massages, steams, or colonics, are also recommended either during or after the taking of Sulflax. Each remedy has its own function to aid and assist the body in coming to a better balanced condition.

Introducing New Ragweed Capsules, the Food of the Gods?

I grew up dealing with allergies to ragweed and have studied the Ragweed plant for many years, including the optimum growing conditions and optimum area to grow a consistent crop.  I am fascinated by this lowly plant and the benefits we can obtain from its proper application.  In my research I have determined there are a few ways to acquire the benefits this plant’s constituents have to offer.  One is through a tincture.  Another is through a tea (a different milder species) and the other is via a capsule.  It is the Ragweed capsule that we are excited to introduce to you today.

Ragweed Capsules, 420 mgThere is no other product like this in the world.

There is no other product like this in the world.  We are able now to capsule fresh handpicked young Ragweed Ambrosia Leaves.  Each vegetable capsule contains 420 mg of these young fresh leaves from the Ragweed plant.  Locally grown and locally harvested.  The tender leaves of the Ragweed plant are handpicked and then they are carefully dried in our special facility.  Most importantly, we harvest our Ragweed at a particular time of the year to be sure the plant has not grown out of our quality specifications.  After we inspect the plants and judge their quality, we harvest and dry the tender leaves.  Because these procedures are meticulous, and because of the current size of our crop, we have a limited supply available.  Don’t miss out.

In Greek mythology ambrosia is considered the food of the Gods, and whether they are referring to Ragweed or not, we are discovering more benefits from this plant every year.  For example, Edgar Cayce (who often referred to ragweed as ambrosia) mentions using it for hay fever, reactions during allergy season, as a liver flush and much more.  He states it is excellent for the liver and good for everyone: “This is for anyone! This is the BEST of the vegetable compounds for activities of the liver.” He goes on to state that it “Maintains equilibrium in the pancreas, spleen, liver and hepatic circulation and digestive system as a whole.” He also calls it a non-habit forming mild laxative that will aid in both assimilations and eliminations.

We are proud to introduce to you this remarkable new product.
