Jessica Berman, Director of Sales and Innovation at BodyBio, a nutritional research company creating innovative supplements for better health & wellness at the cellular level joins eHealth Radio and the Health News & Supplement Channels.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Jessica Berman discuss the following:

  1. How did Smart Pressed Juice originate?

BodyBio was conceived when founders, Ed and Patricia Kane, developed targeted blood chemistry analysis and epigenetic testing to investigate the most complex disorders in the world. Their mission began with developing a medical software program that would produce a list of required nutrients based on an individual’s blood chemistry results matched to the medical literature. The findings from that research developed into BodyBio as we know it today.

BodyBio products stand out from the majority of vitamins and supplements on the market because they were created for those with complex disorders. BodyBio products are developed to offer the purest, non-oxidized, high-quality supplements founded on the market. BodyBio focuses on “cell membrane medicine” – an investigation into real-world science, not fictional promises. BodyBio stands steadfast behind the belief in the ability of their products to improve lives one cell at a time.

Rob Miller Of Supplement Critique Is On A Mission To Prove He’s Legit

Rob Miller Of Supplement Critique Is On A Mission To Prove He’s Legit

December 30, 2018

 

RobMiller.jpg

 

Rob Miller, founder of SupplementCritique.com, a supplement review portal that analyzes the effectiveness of a wide variety of supplements ranging from fat burners to pre workout supplements and everything in between joins eHealth Radio & the Health News and Supplement Channels.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Rob Miller discuss the following:

  1. So tell us a little bit about why was Supplement Critique created?
  2. What makes Supplement Critique different from the 100’s of other supplement review sites out there?
  3. How do you decide what supplement is worth reviewing, explain your process a bit for us.
  4. What types of supplements should consumers watch out for?
  5. What should someone do if they’re unsure about a supplement?

Rob Miller is the founder of Supplement Critique. He holds a certificate as an “Advanced Dietary Supplements Advisor” from a globally recognized nutrition science university, and worked at GNC as a sales rep for 3 years while in college.

Prior to starting Supplement Critique, he was a commercially rated pilot that worked as both a flight instructor and charter pilot.

Supplement Critique is a team of health experts dedicated to providing consumers with unbiased, informative, and fair reviews of a wide variety of supplements. Founded in 2011, it has quickly grown to become one of the most influential supplement review sites in the US.

What makes SupplementCritique.com different from the 1000’s of so called “supplement review sites” on the internet?

For starters, their team personally tests out a wide range of supplements and report back on their results.

No other supplement review site does this.

Additionally, Supplement Critique heavily backs up their articles with links to credible resources. These sources include medically peer reviewed studies, academic research institutions, and credible online publishers like WebMD and Healthline.

Supplement Critique also employs both a licensed pharmacist and a medical doctor to factually review their content, ensuring that it stays up to date with the latest health data available.

Lastly, unlike a wide variety of other supplement review sites, Supplement Critique does not promote their own brand of supplements.

Many of their competitors have created their own brands of supplements. Those same competitors then go on to needlessly bash competing products, all the while selling their own brands.

How Liquid I.V. uses Cellular Transport Technology to Hydrate More Efficiently

How Liquid I.V. uses Cellular Transport Technology to Hydrate More Efficiently

April 14, 2018

 

BrandinCohen_April18.jpg

 

Brandin Cohen, Founder of Liquid I.V., the Non-GMO electrolyte drink mix that is based on Oral Rehydration Therapy joins eHealth Radio and the Health News Channel.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Brandin Cohen discuss the following:

  1. How does it work?
  2. Explain the technology behind it.
  3. How do I know if I'm dehydrated?
  4. Does drinking liquid IV help anything else in my body besides dehydration?
  5. What does Liquid IV do better for the body rather than drinking water?

 

Brandin Cohen is the CEO and Co-founder of Liquid I.V. Brandin Cohen grew up in Manhattan Beach, California, where he aspired to become a professional golf player, eventually playing the sport on scholarship at Loyola Marymount University. When Brandin hurt his shoulder in college, he had no idea the injury would close one door and open another: a career as an innovative entrepreneur with a philanthropic mission.  

After graduating Loyola Marymount University as Entrepreneur of the Year for a project he did in Haiti, Brandin accepted a sales & marketing position with the Arizona Diamondbacks of Major League Baseball. He quickly noticed the players were opting for ineffective sports drinks to fight dehydration. As a former athlete himself, Brandin knew just how full of artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, and preservatives these drinks contain. He set out to find a cleaner, more efficient alternative along with his friend and Liquid I.V. co-founder, Hayden Fulstone.

In 2012, the duo came across an untapped hydration science, Oral Rehydration Therapy, developed in the 1970’s by the World Health Organization and deemed to be one of the best medical advancements of the 20th century. This hydration breakthrough was created to aid children in developing countries suffering from extreme dehydration caused by deadly diseases such as cholera. Brandin searched for any beverage utilizing this technology and but were left empty handed. They decided to bring this untapped science to market and create Liquid I.V. The company officially launched in December 2012.

Aside from creating a great hydration product, Brandin also has a passion for giving back. In 2015, Liquid I.V. began sending hydration aid to some of the poorest regions of Haiti. The brand has since joined forces with multiple nonprofit organizations to fight dehydration together in other undeveloped nations like Uganda and South Sudan. Since the company’s inception, they have donated 34% of all manufactured Liquid I.V. product to fight dehydration both in developing countries and here in the United States.

Brandin was recently nominated as a finalist for Forbes’ 30 Under 30 Social Entrepreneur List. He currently resides in Playa Vista, California, and when he is not on the road meeting with retailers, he loves to travel the world and meet new people of varying cultures on his mission to eradicate global dehydration.

Safe Catch where their tuna is traceable from catch to can

Safe Catch where their tuna is traceable from catch to can

November 2, 2017

 

mij-l-tank-1103-01.jpg

 

Bryan Boches, the Co-Founder of Safe Catch where their tuna is traceable from catch to can and we only buy from captains whose fish come from managed and sustainable tuna stocks joins eHealth Radio and the Health News and Supplement Channels.

 

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Bryan Boches discuss the following:

  • How did you come up with the idea of Safe Catch? Tell us a little more about it? 
  • Is it true Safe Catch - Elite Wild Tuna has the lowest Mercury of any tuna brand? Please explain. 
  • Is Safe Catch ok to eat several times a week unlike traditional tuna? 
  • Is it safe for pregnant women as well?
  • Tell us about the additional products in the Safe Catch line? 

 

About Safe Catch: Our tuna is traceable from catch to can and we only buy from captains whose fish come from managed and sustainable tuna stocks. Read more about our sustainability policy. Then, we test each tuna.Using our proprietary technology, we are able to test every single fish for its mercury content. If it doesn’t meet our purity standards we don’t buy it.  It still may be a good tuna, but it’s not a Safe Catch tuna.

  • Our limit for Safe Catch Elite Wild Tuna is ten times (10x) stricter than the FDA mercury action limit.
  • Our limit for Safe Catch Wild Albacore Tuna is three times (3x) stricter than the FDA mercury action limit.

 

About the Co-Founders Bryan Wittenberg & Bryan Boches: As childhood friends growing up next door to each other, we never thought we would be working together and fighting for purity in our seafood and oceans. It all began when Sean’s mom read an article about mercury variance in tuna and said, “Moms shouldn’t have to worry about giving tuna sandwiches to their kids. Sean, why don’t you solve this?”

After some research, we learned that two identical tuna, same species, size and school could vary in mercury levels by over 10 times. The only way to know the mercury level was to test every fish.

Existing technology cost $100 per mercury test which would make a can of tuna cost about 50 bucks. So, we formed a team of talented software and hardware engineers and invented a new technology to rapidly test every fish for purity.

We went to major seafood brands and offered to test for them but they all declined. One executive told us that consumers wouldn’t understand or care about better purity. So, we did what any entrepreneur with zero experience in food would do. We started a new brand of tuna and named it Safe Catch.

We knew how to identify amazing tuna but we didn’t how to make amazing tuna. We were surprised to learn that conventional tuna is precooked, rehydrated with fillers, machined processed and recooked and as result of so much processing it loses many vital Omega 3 oils, flavor and texture.

So, we searched for a better way to make and cook tuna. We found and adapted an old artisan method. At Safe Catch, we hand cut and hand pack each wild tuna steak into a BPA free lined can with no additives or fillers. Then, we slow cook it just once. It took us 75 different variations to get our formula perfect.

We’re so happy with the purity, quality, and taste. All of the vital Omega 3 oils and flavor are retained in Safe Catch tuna and there is no draining after opening. Open the can into a bowl, chop up the steak with a fork and let it reabsorb its natural oils. It’s moist and delicious pure wild tuna as nature intended.

We hope you love it!

– Sean & Bryan
