Innovative technologies to help balance your wellbeing

INTEGRATIVE APPROACH

a mindful balance of systemic nutritional support

To embrace holistic living is to embrace wholeness. It is to reimagine our lives as a system in the sense that every aspect of our life feeds right into the other. If one is off balance, the other will be. To truly understand and incorporate a holistic perspective, we often need to take a broad view of our life and evaluate how our health might be affecting our relationships. For example, the foods we consume might be affecting our work or sleep cycles. It’s all related. We can achieve a deep sense of fulfillment, joy and well-being when we tend to all aspects of our mind and body. It is important to rebalance and patch any weaknesses in our life system. Our products put holistic thinking into action through an integrative health approach. Providing nutrition that goes beyond simple nourishment actively enhances your embodied experience and enables an active lifestyle with a sense of wellbeing.

In today's supplement and skincare business environment, the market is crowded and competitive. It is very important to help our customers understand our unique advantages when it comes to the features and benefits of our science-based, synergistic blends. All of our products are non-toxic and designed for the very best bioavailability.

TECHNOLOGIES WE USE

The immune system is critical for everything from vision repair to fighting off external and internal attacks on the body. A properly working immune system keeps our health from degrading as we age. One of the primary factors of why young people are healthier is because their immune system works better.

As the acemannan in our ingredient RegenAloe™ is metabolized by the body, it is broken down into smaller parts inside cells, giving support to the cells. Acemannan engages with specific receptors in several types of immune system cells, and it interacts with these cells in a way that activates them. Acemannan also helps the immune system as it interacts with bacteria in our gut, nurturing the proper bacteria that are known to be beneficial agents to the immune system.

Although we don't use acemannan to treat, prevent or mitigate any disease, if you provide the proper nutrition in the diet and give the immune system what it needs, then you can improve the wellbeing of a person in a very substantial and very intimate way because the immune system is critical to everything.

The entourage effect is a chemical reaction that occurs when a combination of cannabinoids is present in the body at the same time; enhancing all their effects simultaneously, they produce a better effect than when taken alone.

Full-spectrum hemp oils contain all the compounds manufactured by the plant: cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. The cannabinoids in these oils include less than .3% THC. That’s not nearly enough to get you high, but it is enough for the entourage effect to kick in which makes full-spectrum oils a more productive choice.

In contrast to isolates, full-spectrum CBD products contain a full range of cannabinoids. It was once believed that isolated CBD was more effective than full-spectrum, but now the opposite is the case; most now agree that full-spectrum CBD is the preferred option because of something called the “entourage effect. 

Vapor Distillation is a revolutionary process that uses a precise burst of heated air instead of solvents.

Cannabinoids and beneficial terpenes are directly distilled from the surface of the cannabis plant using heated air. The distilled vapor is condensed into a terpene-rich, full-spectrum cannabis concentrate.

Higher Terpenes = Stronger Effects NES Proprietary Vapor collection process 

A liposome is an extremely tiny bubble composed of an outer double-wall of lipids (the bubble's membrane) and an inner payload of any number of water-soluble substances.

Lipid molecules are made up of a hydrophilic head (likes water) and hydrophobic tail (hates water). This binary interaction of its hydrophilic and hydrophobic properties in water help structure these molecules into tiny bi-layered bubbles. The interiors of these tiny bubbles are able to contain an ingredient, protected on the outside from digestion and oxidation before their final delivery to your cells.

Liposomes protect their contents until they can be absorbed. Once the blood delivers the liposomes to the cells, the liposome is absorbed into and through the cell wall without the consumption of energy. Liposomes are vastly smaller than any of the cells in your body, allowing them to pass into cells without difficulty. That means you get the nutritional goodness of the ingredients and the absorption benefits of the liposomes.

Liposomes can both dramatically increase absorption AND supply a life-sustaining nutrient at the same time. When a nutrient can be delivered into the cells of your body, not be degraded before delivery, and not consume energy in the process, the benefits of that nutrient can be optimized in a way that even intravenous delivery often does not match.

An oleosome is similar in structure to a liposome.

Oleosomes are naturally found in the cells of plants and seeds in great abundance where they assist in the storage and creation of lipids (fats). Similar to liposomes, they are a spherical membrane of lipids and proteins surrounding and protecting an aqueous solution within.

Oleosomes can be harnessed as time-released lipid bubbles that melt upon contact for ongoing hydration and nourishment. To penetrate ingredients deep into the skin layers we utilize oleosome and micelle technology to shield ingredients such as glutathione by packaging it up to deliver into the system for the best bioavailability and efficacy.

The process of infusion involves steeping ingredients in liquid to gently extract useful qualities, flavors, and healing properties.

We use this process when brewing tea.

"While each type of tea is unique in taste and appearance, they are all known to bestow great health benefits. I hear customers say, "I know green tea is supposed to be good for me" This perception is due to the great quantity of published research that is available with green tea and green tea extract. While green tea may have certain unique attributes, all the tea types are known to be beneficial. Therefore, enjoy all types of tea and feel confident that you are making a healthy choice. Tea is truly amazing! It hydrates and nourishes the body and contributes to overall good health and wellbeing.

There are many healthful plant chemicals (known as phytochemicals) in tea. These are naturally occurring chemicals and many have strong antioxidant properties. An antioxidant can neutralize free radicals that are believed to damage the body, its genetic material, as well as contribute to disease.

Tea contains a mixture of polyphenols. Polyphenols are plant pigments that help give  plants their color and help protect them from damage. When you eat polyphenols from plants, you may receive powerful health benefits as well. There are many types of polyphenols but the most well-researched are flavonoids. Flavonoids are compounds that affect the flavor and feel of your tea and an important subset of flavonoids are catechins."

*Excerpt from Ease of Tea  

True healing begins when the body, mind, and spirit have returned to harmony. The intention is to reach your place of pure 'knowing,' as it is in this place your body holds the 'key' to healing.
