Over 24 years we’ve seen a lot of nutrition supplements come on the market.  In the field of protein powders, we remember the earliest versions (Hoffman pure protein – 1960s), to the hundreds of whey, soy, or even hemp powders that line the shelves of health food stores today.

Two years ago we were introduced to the Master Amino Acid Pattern (or MAP) organic vegan protein supplement – that boasts a 20-minute absorption into the tissues, and an incredible 99% net nitrogen utilization (NNU).  This is the standard by which scientists can detail how much of a protein is used by the tissues metabolically.  Organ meats are around 40-50%, and sadly – most protein powders are around 20%. 

We feel that we’ve hit upon the jackpot of protein supplements – because the tablet is absorbed through the duodenum (the first part of the intestines).  By doing do – it can be used by patients with cancer, those who have had bariatric surgery, persons with irritable bowel syndrome and obstructive bowel disorder, autoimmune diseases, and even those persons with other less severe conditions such as poor digestion.   Trainers and coaches can use this supplement with children, athletes, and seniors.  MAP may be the most advanced supplement on the market today.  Now – we’re offering it to you.

In the past half decade, the issue of medical Cannabis has become much more mainstream.  That said – it is interesting that a plant so versatile that has been around for centuries is finally getting its due.  Perhaps the most versatile plant in history, we now have a part of it that will be making its mark in medicine in the very near future.

Although CBD doesn’t make people feel high like THC does, it’s causing quite a buzz among scientists, health professionals, and patients who are using CBD-rich products to treat a wide range of conditions—chronic pain, cancer, Crohn’s, diabetes, arthritis, PTSD, cardiovascular disease, anxiety, antibiotic-resistant infections, multiple sclerosis, schizophrenia, and more.   In the mid-19th century, the U.S. Pharmacopeia listed cannabis tincture as a treatment for pediatric epilepsy, and subsequent scientific studies have documented the anticonvulsant effects of CBD, THC, and whole plant cannabis.  Between 10-15 percent of severe childhood epileptics who are given CBD oil products experience a near complete cessation of seizures. 

 With regard to anxiety, when CBD is administered acutely (“as needed”), it appears safe, well-tolerated, and may be beneficial to treat many anxiety-related disorders, including: Panic disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), social phobia, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), and mild to moderate depression.

All that said – hemp may be one of the most versatile “non medicines” on the market.  Click to order Santa Barbara CBD through the company. Use the promo code MedHealthFit, and receive 10% off your entire order.
