Today I talk about two new hemp extracts available from HPDI in the Quicksilver brand. I specifically present the difference between two new products: Nanoemulsified Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract 400 and Nanoemulsified Full Spectrum Hemp Extract 400. These two products replace the single product known as “Colorado Hemp Oil” previously available from Quicksilver. We now offer these two products and a range of hemp and CBD formulas on our new hemp website: www.INTEGRATEDHEALTHHEMP.COM.
Quicksilver Scientific replaces its Colorado Hemp Oil with two superb hemp extract formulas. The new formulas (Broad Spectrum and Full Spectrum) are similar. They both have the same level (21 mg) per serving of hemp extract. Also, they both contain 16 mg cannabidiol, which is an increase from the 12 mg cannabidiol in the old product (Colorado Hemp Oil).
In addition, both of the new hemp extract formulas contain more ingredients associated with hemp extracts—including additional cannabinoids, terpenes, and beta-caryophyllene—that improve the effectiveness of hemp extract products.
For people tho are regular tested for drugs (e.g., THC), the Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract is recommended. For those individuals who are not drug tested, the Full Spectrum Hemp Extract is recommended because it will better support the functioning of the endocannabinoid system.
The price of the Nanoemusified Full Spectrum Hemp Extract 400 and the Nanoemusified Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract 400 hemp extract products remain the same as the price for the discontinued Nanoemulsified Colorado Hemp Oil product. HPDI currently sells each of these new hemp extract liposomal products for $78.50 (retail).
These two new Quicksilver Scientific hemp extract formulas are superior liposomal hemp extract products. Both Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract and Full Spectrum Hemp Extract are highly effective formulas utilizing unique nanoemulsification technology to maximize the many known benefits of hemp extract.
Multivitamins are the most important of the basic or foundational supplements providing nutrients essential for health and wellness. Because if there is a single nutritional supplement everyone should take, a multivitamin is it.
But it can’t be just any multivitamin. The best multivitamins are complete, high-potency, high-quality, high-purity, provide a complete range of essential vitamins and minerals, and contain advanced forms—more about advanced forms later.
The purpose of taking a high-potency multivitamin not only is to provide the body with amounts and forms of nutrients meeting minimum requirements for avoiding deficiency conditions, but also sufficient levels of nutrients that can support optimal health. Because vitamins levels for optimal health are NOT the same as levels required to avoid deficiency conditions.
MORE THAN DAILY ALLOWANCES
While 40% of Americans say they take a multivitamin daily, how many actually obtain all the nutrients they need for optimal health from taking it? Practically no one. Why?
Because basic “recommended daily amounts” (100% of daily allowance) typically found in multivitamins are based on models for disease prevention. That is, these are minimum levels indicated to avoid conditions like Pellagra (caused by vitamin B3 deficiency), Beriberi (caused by vitamin B1 deficiency), or Rickets (caused by vitamin D deficiency), for example. Nutrient fortification of foods by law has mostly eradicated those conditions. But, as noted, minimum recommended amounts are not the amounts required for optimal health.
The best multivitamin supplements therefore do not provide just 100% of a recommended daily amount of a certain nutrient, but far higher amounts. That is for truly optimal health, high-potency is a must in multivitamins. One of the main reasons for this is “biochemical individuality.” While most people fall within a certain range in terms of their needs for a specific nutrient, the overall range (or bell curve) may be quite large. Your needs may be greater.
Another, related reason is genetics. If you are heterozygous for a gene that requires a specific nutrient, then you may already be at a disadvantage for assimilating or processing it. If you are homozygous, then not having sufficient amounts of a nutrient can have much larger, adverse consequences.
For any given nutrient, then, your needs may be higher or significantly higher than other people’s needs. The best way to guarantee your needs are met is to ensure you consume larger amounts. That is, a high-potency multivitamin providing levels of nutrients well above the minimum amounts established to avoid deficiency.
MULTIVITAMINS ARE SAFE, LOW COST,
High-potency multivitamins work well because vitamins—at least at the levels we are talking about here—are non-toxic, safe, and well-tolerated. Add to the safety of vitamins their relatively low cost (especially compared to pharmaceuticals) that solidifies the case for high-potency multivitamins as a virtual “no-brainer” for supporting good health.
That is the basic rationale for why you need a high-quality, high-potency multivitamin. There are many other reasons. Such reasons include the fact that diet alone is usually not enough to provide the levels of basic nutrients you need.
DIET ALONE IS USUALLY INSUFFICIENT FOR OPTIMAL LEVELS OF NUTRIENTS
Diet alone could perhaps be sufficient if foods were nutrient-dense and you consumed enough of them. But foods today are typically not nutrient-dense given how modern agriculture has stripped the soils of essential nutrients. Herbicides and pesticides then poison foods. And the widely used glyphosate herbicide (RoundUp) actually depletes nutrients in foods by blocking their uptake in plants leading to further depletion in crop foods. Food processing then strips out additional nutrients. Get the picture?
On top of all this, your requirements for nutrients are increased by factors such as pollution and chemical exposures (and greater stress on detoxification organs), emotional stress, immune stresses (like fighting off colds or flu), and even free-radical stress caused by electromagnetic fields (EMFs) such as mobile phone and Wi-Fi exposures. In many cases, various stresses and environmental exposures put a greater burden on your antioxidant defense systems by subjecting you to free-radical attack. This is just the beginning.
Assuming your diet were “perfect” (which most likely it is not), your needs for various nutrients will vary depending on your levels of exposure to stresses (emotional, chemical, electromagnetic, etc.). This means that as your needs for extra nutrients rise to combat these stresses, the simplest and best way to meet those needs is through consuming additional, supplemental amounts of nutrients—to successfully meet those needs. Otherwise, having only minimal amounts (i.e., daily values created to avoid deficiency diseases) means your need for higher amounts will not be met.
IF YOU DO NOTHING ELSE, TAKE A HIGH-QUALITY MULTIVITAMIN
A multivitamin can meet those additional needs, or at least start meeting them. In fact, a multivitamin is the best “first line of defense.” In the HPDI system, a multivitamin is just one of six foundational supplements—but it “first among equals” and therefore the very first supplement we recommend. This means that if you do nothing else, then take a multivitamin.
Need another good reason to make a multivitamin? Again, genetics. HPDI has teamed up with Bodysync, the developer of Nutrisync genetic tests (available to HPDI resellers on the reseller website and to retail customers by phone) that offers testing for health-related genetic variations in your DNA.
Among the first things we realized after analyzing Nutrsync genetic test results is that many genetic variants that may cause problems with uptake of certain nutrients—or that require additional amounts of nutrients—can be partly or wholly mitigated by taking a high-potency multivitamin. This is not true in every case, but surprisingly the nutrients provided in a quality multivitamin can be a strong defense in this regard.
Another thing we noticed is that the results of almost everyone taking the Nutrisync test exhibit certain genetic weaknesses that would benefit from a multivitamin. Another “no brainer” observation that may not have been so obvious beforehand, yet which corresponds with what we have been recommending to clients for decades: Take a multivitamin!
People may not realize that optimal health is within reach. Taking a high-potency multivitamin daily is a major first step toward achieving it.
BENEFITS OF A HIGH-QUALITY, HIGH-POTENCY MULTIVITAMIN
Considering all the factors involved in optimal nutrition—and how important nutrition is to health—it is remarkable to think that your health can be well maintained or dramatically improved simply by taking a high-potency multivitamin. Yet, that is a fact. And
• Ensures complete nutrition by providing a wide-range of nutrients to supplement those obtainable by diet
• Provides optimal levels of nutrients in a balanced way
• Guards against deficiencies of particular nutrients
• Protects against nutrient depletion caused by increased needs for nutrients (e.g., various stresses or periods of inadequate intake).
• Helps you fulfill genetic potential by supplying nutrients required for optimal genetic expression and for overcoming adverse genetic factors
• Safe, low cost, and effective means to support good health
BENEFITS OF HPDI MULTIVITAMINS

Exclusion of ingredients such as wheat, dairy, corn, soy, and egg having well-known antigenic properties and that may be associated with allergy or delayed hypersensitivity reactions. Contains no GMOs.
A minimum of excipients, fillers, lubricants, etc. that exert deleterious effects in some individuals.
Multi Two is a great multivitamin and in many ways similar to the Mighty Multi-Vite!. However, Multi Two provides more B vitamins and in the case of certain B vitamins, it provides twice as much as Mighty Multi-Vite!. For anyone who requires plenty of B vitamins and who doesn’t necessarily want to take a separate, standalone B vitamin formula, Multi Two is an ideal multivitamin.
We call our Mini Multi the “World’s Purest Multivitamin.” This is because it was originally formulated for chemically and/or environmentally sensitive persons. The capsule is smaller than our other multivitamins which easily allows for partial dosing. It also is our only all coenzyme form multivitamin.
MINI MULTI is an ultrapure, biochemically formulated, complete multivitamin supplement that includes essential and trace minerals, and cofactors. MINI MULTI is highly bioavailable and contained in a preservative-free veggie capsule (helping eliminate chemical contaminants). The capsule contains no fillers, flow agents, or any other excipients. Each component is the highest purity.
MINI MULTI is ideal for chemically and environmentally sensitive individuals who require ultra-high purity supplements. The formula is designed by Dr. Hank Liers, who developed it as a ultra-pure formula for sensitive individuals. Yet, anyone can take MINI MULTI to benefit from its ultra-high purity and avoidance of additives, fillers, or other excipients.
Many individuals who take MINI MULTI are not chemically sensitive, but suffer from allergies, sensitive digestive tracts, wish to avoid gelatin capsules, or simply do not enjoy swallowing large capsules (or tablets).
Meet Mini Multi, the world’s purest multivitamin formulated originally for chemically and environmentally sensitive persons.
ADVANCED DESIGN INCLUDES NEARLY 100% COENZYME FORM B VITAMINS
MINI MULTI’s biochemical formulation incorporates the latest research on nutrient transport and interaction to enhance efficient metabolism and includes coenzyme forms of vitamins. The vitamins and minerals in MINI MULTI activate the body’s metabolic machinery, and synergistic cofactors aid absorption, assimilation, utilization, and metabolism of nutrients.
MINI MULTI is among the first multivitamins to provide almost all coenzyme form B vitamins (i.e., all except vitamin B3, which we include as niacinamide). Coenzyme form vitamins are the natural forms best recognized and utilized in the body. For example, MINI MULTI provides folate in the form of folinic acid (a natural form of folate) from calcium folinate and L-5-MTHF (another natural form of folate), rather than the typical and commonly used folic acid, a synthetic form requiring enzymatic processing in the body for utilization. That is, coenzyme vitamins are easier to assimilate (especially for older individuals or those with health conditions that reduce enzyme activity in vivo) and they are immediately recognized and used in the body.

5. CHEWABLE KIDS MIGHTY-MULTI
HPDI’s KIDS MIGHTY-MULTI! is truly one-of-a-kind. It is most similar to the Mighty Multi-Vite! in terms of the nutrients it provides, including antioxidants. However, it is our only chewable and it tastes great.
KIDS MIGHTY-MULTI! is an advanced chewable multivitamin for children incorporating the latest nutritional research in a tasty, complete formula combining the highest-quality and most usable forms of vitamins, minerals, herbs, and cofactors.
Our children’s multivitamin formula provides optimal levels of basic essential nutrients and thereby is an ideal foundation upon which to build a complete nutritional supplement program. A high-quality multivitamin is the starting-point for building a program uniquely designed to suit to your child’s individual requirements.
We offer KIDS MIGHTY-MULTI! as a “top-of-the-line” children’s formula that tastes great and produces exceptional results. This unique formula very effectively provides children with a solid foundation of nutrients for establishing, building, supporting, and maintaining excellent health during this critical period of their lives.

Flavored with only healthy, natural sweeteners and functional taste enhancers, including mannitol, xylitol, fructooligosaccharides (FOS) (from chicory root), natural fruit flavor, and stevia leaf extract. Most of these taste enhancers actually exhibit other positive benefits in the body (i.e., prebiotic effects, cavity prevention, and antioxidant action). Kids (and adults) love the taste!
BALANCED ESSENTIAL NUTRIENTS – exceptionally balanced nutrients for supporting your child’s health. This is a foundational formula ideal for providing basic nutrients for health. Indeed, a high-quality multivitamin is a basic foundational formula (along with vitamin C and essential fatty acid formulas) in a nutritional supplement program. Our kids’ formula puts your child on the nutritional track he or she deserves right from the start!
“ULTRA PURE” – excludes common food source allergens (like wheat, corn, soy, or dairy). Also excludes unnecessary excipients, fillers, binders, and additives. Unlike many children’s vitamins, ours contains NO artificial colorings or flavorings, artificial sweeteners (like aspartame, saccharin, or sucralose) or hydrogenated vegetable oils…substances that can have deleterious effects on health (yet are frequently include. Plus, NO sugar and NO GMOs!
RAPID ASSIMILATION – incorporates bioavailable vitamin and mineral carriers the body recognizes and can assimilate immediately. Plus, multiple carriers ensure assimilation. Chewable form speeds uptake in the body.

MORE ABOUT KIDS MIGHTY-MULTI!
A Better, Safer Multivitamin for Kids
The vast majority of children’s vitamins today are decidedly not advanced formulations. They typically provide only minimum amounts (i.e., no more than government mandated daily values) of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. In addition, most kids’ vitamin on the market remain filled with sugars and artificial ingredients, including aspartame (a known toxin), artificial colorings, preservatives, hydrogenated oils, and other toxic substances.
Consider what our Kids Mighty-Multi! does NOT contain:
Aspartame. There is controversy surrounding this artificial sweetener, which is associated with a variety of neurological problems. In fact, there is widespread consensus that children under six should not use aspartame. We believe no one should consume aspartame at any age!
Refined sugars (usually listed as, sucrose, etc.). There is no place for sugar in multivitamins. Sugar in supplements is also dangerous because when coupled with ascorbic acid, it can damage teeth! Chewable kids vitamins containing sugar expose your child’s teeth to double jeopardy.
Artificial dyes (FD&C Yellow, Blue, and/or Red). Artificial colors are associated with a wide range of health and behavioral problems. These include carcinogenicity, and contributing to learning problems like ADHD. In addition, FD&C Yellow dye #5 (tartrazine) is one of the main food triggers of asthma attacks.
Benzoates, sulfur dioxide, sulfites. These are bad because they are all preservatives that have no business being in a health supplement. They all are known to stimulate allergic reactions.
Hydrogenated oils. These are the bad, sticky fats that are found in junk foods and are harmful to your child’s heart. Incredibly, some companies put hydrogenated oils in a children’s vitamin!
As you can see, our children’s chewable multivitamin is not your ordinary kids multivitamin, and it provides all the benefits of our other multivitamins in a tasty chewable format. In fact, many adults take it who prefer a chewable over a capsule or tablet. It is uniquely formulated to be scalable for adults at the dosage of two tablets per 20 lbs body weight.
Chewable Kids Mighty-Multi tastes great, provides advanced forms of nutrients, and scales up for adults.
CONCLUSION: TAKE A MULTIVITAMIN
Multivitamins are the first supplement most people need and should take. Taking a high-potency, high-purity multivitamin daily provides many benefits beyond what you might expect. This includes everything from ensuring against deficiencies to providing amounts necessary for optimal health, and for compensating for greater needs depending on your unique biochemical individuality. Given the overarching safety and relatively low cost of multivitamins, they are best “first defense” in a nutrient-depleted world.
HPDI offers four of the best multivitamins available anywhere, and five if you consider that Multi Two is available in capsules or tablets. So take your pick among them, and be the healthiest you can be.
One of the most significant developments for nutrient uptake and assimilation is the advent of liposomal delivery systems. Once in the range of 300–5,000 nanometers, the latest liposomes are now just 20–100 nanometers (nm)!
The significance of these small liposomes—tiny bilayer lipid structures—is that there is a major increase in the amount of nutrient delivery to cells. That is, small liposomes show significantly greater efficiency at intracellular delivery of encapsulated compounds.
Liposomal delivery systems have evolved rapidly and now offer major advantages over nutritional supplements delivered by standard means—like capsules, tablets, powders, and liquids (e.g., tinctures).
Liposomal delivery systems first utilized multi-lamellar vesicles (MLV) ranging ins size from 300–5,000 nanometers. Later, “large” unilamellar vesicles (LUV) (100–300 nanometers) were developed. Products containing LUVs are more effectively assimilated than MLVs.
As noted, lipsomal technologies have shrunk liposome sizes to 20–100 nanometers (nm), the category size for small unilamellar vesicles (SUV). This means the body can far more easily assimilate nutrients delivered liposomally when the particle sizes are up to 10 times smaller than already effective liposome sizes.
Small liposomes (SUV) have a long circulation half-life and better cellular accumulation. Small lipid particles have the fastest uptake kinetics and can participate in paracellular (between cells) transport. The nutritional liposome industry is rapidly moving toward the use of small liposomes.
Key Point: Small liposomes (SUV) are significantly more efficient at intracellular delivery of encapsulated compounds. In a recent study with carefully sized liposomes, cellular uptake increased nine-fold as liposome size was decreased from 236 nm to 97 nm and was 34 fold higher at 64 nm.
Nutrients that can be delivered liposomally range from vitamin C and glutathione to many types of adaptogenic and medicinal herbs.
Benefits of Liposomal Delivery
Rapid update, assimilation, and movement into cells
Oral intake bypasses digestive system—nutrients go directly into body
High levels of nutrients assimilated
Reduced dosages and less “wasted” product
Nutrients penetrate smallest compartments in the body
Nutrients circulate widely
Precise intra-oral delivery
Simple manual pump from glass bottle
Easy water dispersability when desired
Liposomal delivery systems are the future of nutritional supplements given all the advantages they confer. HPDI recognizes the value of liposomal products, and now offers the best formulas available—from Quicksilver Scientific, Inc.—to our customers.
QUICKSILVER LIPOSOMAL FORMULAS
HPDI offers multiple liposomal formulas from Quicksilver Scientific, the leader in nanoliposomal delivery systems. Each formula offers unparalleled uptake and assimilation—and good taste!—via inta-oral delivery. These products include:
HPDI offers four liposomal formulas from Quicksilver Scientific.
Liposomal Vitamin C with R-Lipoic Acid (mean size 50–100nm): Quicksilver Scientific’s Etheric Delivery™ system for Liposomal Vitamin C (with R-Lipoic Acid) is the most absorbable form of professional-grade Vitamin C. Vitamin C is essential to any detoxification program because it feeds the system that eliminates toxins. It is also very effective in removing lead and other heavy metals from our system and fighting off the free radicals that form in the liver during the first phase of detoxification.
R-Lipoic Acid (as sodium R-Lipoate) has an exceptionally well-documented ability to upregulate the glutathione system via the Nrf2 nuclear transcription pathway. This combination of liposomal vitamin C and R-Lipoate in a nanoliposomal delivery system potently harnesses the potential of Vitamin C to the power of a fully functioning glutathione system.
The absorption of conventional oral Vitamin C diminishes rapidly as the dose increases (e.g., about 19% for 1000 mg oral vitamin C). Nanosphere delivery greatly increases absorption and for some compounds can provide higher intracellular delivery than an IV administration.
Quicksilver Liposomal Vitamin C with R-Lipoic Acid
Suggested Usage: General use for antioxidant and detoxification function, take eight pumps per day (1,000 mg of Vitamin C and 50 mg of R-Lipoate). For advanced intermittent use, use up to 50 pumps per day (6,250 mg Vitamin C and 312.5 mg R-Lipoate) or more, in divided doses throughout the day. For detoxification protocols, especially with metal toxicities, build dosage gradually, starting from low doses, as they are tolerated. If strong detoxification reactions are observed, back off dosage. Children should start at approximately 1/4 of adult (two pumps per day) dosage and work up. For topical application, one pump can cover the face for a daily treatment, or use several pumps as a mask and leave on for 10–15 minutes; skin can be re-wetted and left for another 10 minutes before rinsing off excess.
Liposomal Glutathione: Quicksilver’s Phospholipid Encapsulation Etheric Delivery system protects glutathione from digestive enzymes that otherwise inhibit absorption of oral glutathione supplementation. In cell cultures, liposomal products have demonstrated over 100 times more efficiency for intracellular delivery than IV-based liposomal glutathione.
Quicksilver’s Liposomal Glutathione comes with a precision pump to accurately deliver 50 mg of reduced glutathione and 68 mg of injectable-grade essential phospholipids (derived from sunflower oil) per pump. The patent-pending process, plus a natural lemon flavoring, allows this product to be taken intra-orally for maximum absorption without the foul sulfur taste typical of liposomal glutathione products. The formula can be taken every 3–4 hours for even delivery throughout the day. One bottle delivers 100, 0.5 ml doses.
Quicksilver Liposomal Glutathione with Lemon Mint
Suggested Usage: For general antioxidant and detoxification protection, use eight pumps per day (400 mg glutathione). For advanced protection, use up to 20 per day (1,000 mg glutathione) or more, in divided doses throughout the day. For large doses, take two pumps at a time to allow for maximum oral absorption, and hold at least 30 seconds before swallowing. Children should start at approximately 1/4 of adult (two pumps per day) dosage and work up.
Liposomal Colorado Hemp Oil (discontinued). Quicksilver has replaced it with two new hemp extract formulas available on HDPI’s new hemp extract & CBD formula website: https://IntegratedHealthHemp.com
Quicksilver hemp extracts far outpace tinctures and is faster, stronger and more effective. Cannabidiol interacts with our body’s naturally occurring cannabinoid receptors to aid with pain relief and enhanced feelings of well being. The advanced technology behind this groundbreaking liquid delivery method makes for precise dosing and immediate effect.
Because of the known interaction of CBD with these cannabidiol receptors, much new research has focused on CBD’s receptor-mediated neuro-protective, antiemetic, and analgesic properties, and of its effect on mood and other aspects of mental health.
New research on gene transcription modulation offers an even deeper look into the biochemical mechanisms at work when ingesting CBD. Research in this vein has shown more than 1,000 genes that are differentially upregulated by CBD (a more than ten-fold increase than those affected by THC). In general, the effects increased cell stress responses—including antioxidant-defense and detoxification genes (mainly via EhRE/ARE-Nrf2 induction)—and downregulated many inflammation-mediating genes. These effects combined with CBDs NMDA-receptor-stabilizing effects, show great promise for its use in calming the neuro-inflammatory responses accompanying neurotoxic and chronic illness states.
Colorado Hemp Oil is discontinued. We offer Quicksilver Full Spectrum and Broad Spectrum hemp extracts at https://IntegratedHealthHemp.com
Suggested Use: Take 1–4 pumps by mouth, holding for 30 seconds before swallowing. Repeat if needed. Four pumps contain 30 mg of Hemp Extract (aerial parts) and 12 mg of Phytocannabinoid Diols. There are 25 four-pump servings per container. Best taken on an empty stomach 10 minutes before meals. May be stirred into a small amount of water. Once opened, use within 60 days. Store at room temperature and away from light.
Liposomal NanoMojo (adaptogenic blend): Dr. Christopher Shade, PhD of Quicksilver Scientific, collaborated with master herbalist Dan Moriarty of Sun Horse Energy to create NanoMojo, a groundbreaking functional medicine product. By combining Moriarty’s unique adaptogenic formulation with Dr. Shade’s state-of-the-art liposomal encapsulation, they’ve overcome the limitations of poor oral adsorption and made the phytochemicals quickly available at the cellular level. This new innovative blend of adaptogens from around the world is maximized for effectiveness.
Adaptogens are non-toxic phytochemicals that help the body achieve homeostatic balance under adverse conditions that would typically be associated with sympathetic (fight or flight) reactions. They help regulate natural harmony, adrenal balance, and stress accommodation (resistance to stress). In fact, adaptogenic herbs have been used in Ayurvedic medicine for more than 4,000 years and Chinese medicine for nearly 3,000 years to increase energy (chi) and concentration.
Scientific literature reports that adaptogenic herbs play significant roles in decreasing markers of stress-activated protein kinases, cortisol, and nitric oxide. These markers indicate a lowered level of systemic stress and inflammation and decreased symptoms of an over-taxed adrenal system.
NanoMojo helps your body adapt to the various conditions that cause stress, something most of us experience daily. This liposomal formulation is the culmination of more than eight years of research and development. Not only is it effective, but it also tastes very good.
NanoMojo Liposomal Adaptogenic Blend
Directions: Take two pumps twice daily, or more. May be mixed into a small amount of water. Best taken on an empty stomach. Once opened, use within 60 days.
The advent of small liposomes means significantly greater uptake and assimilation of nutrients than ever before. This means you stand to benefit greatly from advanced intra-orally delivered nanoliposomal formulas like those developed by Quicksilver Scientific, Inc.
Years ago in the late 1980s, I found from experience that people’s health improved significantly when they used a foundational nutritional supplements program.
The reasons behind people’s need for foundational supplements: 1) Nutritionally deficient diets, 2) Excessive exposure to toxic chemicals, and 3) High levels of stress.
These reasons remain true today. But the three categories have become greater factors than previously. They seem to have gotten dramatically worse over time.
Due to these factors, and in light of new understandings based on scientific and clinical research, I have decided to amend the HPDI Foundational Supplements Program.
Consequently, in this article, I am introducing two new categories to the HPDI Foundational Program. These are: 1) Gut Health/Microbiome products and 2) Hydrogen products. The complete amended program is illustrated by the diagram below.
1.1. Diagram of the newly amended HPDI Foundational Supplements Program
HISTORY OF HPDI FOUNDATIONAL SUPPLEMENTS PROGRAM
The original HPDI foundational program was initially called the “Core Program” and consisted of a therapeutic multivitamin, a vitamin C/antioxidant formula, and an essential fatty acid product. The essence of the foundation was based upon over 70 years of research during which the basic elements of nutrition were elucidated.
ADDING RNA TO THE CORE PROGRAM
When we became aware of the work of Dr. Benjamin S. Frank regarding ribonucleic acids (RNA) and the powerful affects RNA had on the body independently of the other nutritional components of the “Core Program”, it was clear that a new element was necessary and we developed and added High-RNA superfoods to our program.
Amending the HPDI Foundational Supplements Program is a necessity based upon important new research and clinical studies. Even today many people do not understand the importance of RNA and its role in implementing the basic DNA structures of the body.
One reason that RNA has become so much more important than it was 40–50 years ago is that diets have basically become devoid of RNA. Muscle meats and processed foods have little RNA and the population is no longer eating sufficient high-RNA foods such as organ meats, fresh fish, and certain vegetables.
What are foundational supplements? This booklet offers suggestions for improving intake of essential nutrients.
ADDING GUT HEALTH / MICROBIOME TO THE FOUNDATIONAL PROGRAM
More recently, the scientific community has discovered the importance of the human microbiome to our health. It is known there are about 10 times more bacterial cells living on and in the human body than the number of cells in our body. The amount of DNA carried by these bacterial cells is about 100 times the amount in our cells!! Many of these bacterial cells reside in the human gut. It is proven that these gut bacteria play a major role in keeping us healthy.
The issue of of how to create a healthy human microbiome is very complex. The problems start with how we grow our food. Beneficial, natural soil bacteria play an important role in helping to create healthy gut bacteria.
Yet, farming methods over the last 50-60 years have been oriented to the use of herbicides, pesticides, and synthetic fertilizers. These methods have basically destroyed much of the healthy bacteria in our soils. This means these bacteria cannot be passed on to the human gut.
In addition, the overuse of antibiotics in both animals and humans has further destroyed more of the healthy bacteria available to us.
According to Dr. Zachary Bush, healthy gut bacteria protect us from conditions of leaky gut. Without the healthy gut bacteria humans develop conditions of leaky gut, which leads to toxicity in the body from a variety of sources including pesticides (especially Roundup/glyphosate), antibiotics, medications, gluten, anti-inflammatories (such as ibuprofen), etc.
Recent findings regarding the human microbiome clearly indicate the absolute necessity of finding ways to build a strong human microbiome. There are multiple ways a person can do this including healthy diets, avoidance of toxic chemicals and drugs, and with the use of certain supplements.
Dr. Bush has discovered a supplement using redox molecules found in lignite. These molecules were deposited in the lignite material millions of years ago by a broad range of healthy soil bacteria.
By extracting and activating these molecules and putting them into a liquid product called RESTORE™ he found that when people consumed this liquid they could regenerate a broad range of good bacteria in the gut (20,000–30,000 species). He also found they could simultaneously repair conditions of leaky gut. RESTORE™ also significantly helps with dehydration issues, which is another key factor in achieving good health.
Based on the importance of having a broad range of healthy gut bacteria and a robust microbiome—and RESTORE’s ability to cause this to happen—we have chosen to add RESTORE™ to our amended HPDI Foundational program. HPDI is now carrying this product in 8 oz and 32 oz sizes. This product should be taken daily at an appropriate dose for you (up to 3 tablespoons daily).
ADDING HYDROGEN TO THE HPDI FOUNDATIONAL PROGRAM
Hydrogen is among the most fundamental elements in the universe and makes up a large percentage of all molecules. It is known that hydrogen and oxygen are key ingredients in the mitochondria used to make ATP, the principal energy molecule of the human body.
What was not known about hydrogen until recently was its powerful ability to safely trap free radicals and to stimulate the production of ATP.
Many studies have been conducted over the past 20 years showing the power of hydrogen in either the molecular hydrogen form or the hydride form.
More recently, a number of hydrogen products have become available. These include molecular hydrogen tablets, silica hydride capsules, molecular hydrogen drinks, water ionizers producing molecular hydrogen, molecular hydrogen water purifiers, etc.
Based upon the research and product availability, we are amending the HPDI Foundation Supplement program to include silica hydride capsules (Megahydrate™) and molecular hydrogen tablets (Active H2) under the category of hydrogen.
Megahydrate™also plays a major role in hydrating the cells of the body. It is now feasible for people to take hydrogen products on a daily basis at reasonable cost. The benefits can be immense!
Based on current research—and the availability of breakthrough products—we have amended the HPDI Foundation Supplement Program. The recommended program now includes:
1. Therapeutic Multivitamin, including Hank & Brian’s Mighty Multi-Vite! or Multi Two
2. Vitamin C/Antioxidant formula like PRO-C or Ultimate Protector™
3. Essential Fatty Acids formula like Hank & Brian’s Essential Fats plus E
4. High-RNA Superfoods from our Rejuvenate!™ product line
5. Gut Health/Microbiome products, including RESTORE™
6. Hydrogen products, including Megahydrate™ and Active H2
We believe that to achieve optimal health these six types of supplements ideally need to be taken on a daily basis.
Over the next several months, we will update our websites to document more fully the amendments we have introduced to the HPDI Foundational Supplements Program.
An interview (see link below) by Dr. Pompa of Dr. Stephanie Seneff provides extremely important information regarding how GMOs are destroying the health of so many people, especially our children (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PidYStbzHY).
I am excited this month to talk about Warrior Mist, which is an all-natural skin, muscle, and joint support formula. Warrior Mist is a topical formula that is my go-to-product for effective pain relief.
Warrior Mist is highly effective for pain. Indeed, my father Dr. Hank Liers formulated it for rapid pain relief, naturally. Many health care professionals find it useful for their clients.
Being applied topically on skin, Warrior Mist acts quickly at the pain source to stop it. Topical application is an advantage when it comes to rapid relief.
Warrior Mist comes in a pump-spray glass bottle.
NATURAL INGREDIENTS FOR EFFECTIVE PAIN RELIEF
Beyond its effectiveness against pain, what I like about Warrior Mist is that it contains all-natural ingredients. What does that mean? Most of its ingredients are herbal like peppermint oil, lavender oil, and organic coconut and olive oils.
Warrior Mist contains: DMSO (99.999% pure), peppermint oil (the source of menthol in the product), organic olive oil, distilled water, MSM, magnesium chloride, lemon oil, lavender oil, and organic coconut oil.
Warrior Mist contains no harsh chemicals or synthetic preservatives (like parabens, dimethicone, or phenoxyethanol). What else would you expect from a formulator like Dr. Hank Liers or a company like Health Products Distributors?
For anyone who cares about NOT putting toxic chemicals on their skin, Warrior Mist is a high-purity formula worthy of consideration. It is a pure, simple, and effective formula.
Warrior Mist comes in a spray bottle made of glass, not plastic. Shake it, then spray it. Gently massage the area of application to assist absorption. That’s all there is to it.
WARRIOR MIST APPLICATIONS FOR PAIN
Warrior Mist is effective for many applications, including pain relief for joints (wrists, elbows, knees, ankles), bruises and scratches, as well as insect bites and skin irritations. I occasionally I spray it directly into my mouth for throat relief, especially in winter or during allergy season (although technically it is not for internal use).
I practice aikido, which can stress joints, especially wrists. Most aikido techniques involve grips that can become throws. There are also strikes, counterstrikes, blocks, falls, rolls, wrist breaks (escapes), and other movements.
Aikido is safe when practiced carefully. Yet, many techniques can lead to bumps, bruises, strains, sprains, and soreness. Warrior Mist helps me (and others) a lot. In fact, I donated a bottle of Warrior Mist to the dojo, so it’s there for anyone who needs it.
I am not sure what I would do for routine aches and pains without Warrior Mist. Sometimes just having relief after an aikido workout makes a big difference in my day.
My eight-year-old son also practices aikido in the same dojo. I feel confident using Warrior Mist on him because it is a safe, natural product that works.
I also practice yoga. Yoga rarely results in the types of minor injuries I experience from aikido. Yet, for times when I overstretch a muscle or overdo a pose, I reach for Warrior Mist for rapid, effective pain relief.
I enjoy hiking. We live on the edge of a desert wilderness north of Tucson, Arizona. There are cactus, thick brush, thorny bushes, and biting insects like ants and scorpions. Many hikes involve at least a few thorns, scrapes, or mild soreness. Warrior Mist helps with these.
I have used Warrior Mist for bee and scorpion stings, ant bites, scrapes, cuts, small puncture wounds (e.g., from cactus spines), as well as skin irritations of various kinds.
In fact, there are few types of pain I have found Warrior Mist doesn’t mitigate. I use it for shoulder pain, neck pain, and lower back pain when it occurs. I notice the sooner I get Warrior Mist on the affected area, the faster I experience relief.
I don’t personally suffer from headaches, but friends who do tell me Warrior Mist helps them a lot. One of the ingredients is magnesium chloride, which is known to help ease headaches, including migraine headaches. Gently rub Warrior Mist around temples, forehead, or base of the neck.
Pain relief is not always immediate when using Warrior Mist. Yet, I know from experience how much it helps. The ingredients it contains support healing, too. Be patient, give it time, and allow it to work. That is exactly what I do sometimes.
AROUND HOUSE, YARD, AND GARDEN
Warrior Mist is ideal to keep in the house for everyday bumps and bruises like stubbed toes, bruised shins, or skinned knees. We find it useful after yardwork or gardening. You can spray it directly on an area, or else spray it into your hand first (after shaking the bottle), and then rub it into an affected area.
I know of two people who use Warrior Mist for pain in the tailbone (coccyx), the final segment of the vertebral column. Tailbone pain for them was originally caused by falling. One person fell from a horse and the other off a skateboard. While these injuries are structural, Warrior Mist provides significant relief. The reduction in pain helps daily function and facilitates sleep.
WARRIOR MIST FOR PETS
Warrior Mist is safe for use with pets. In fact, it was originally formulated for pets with the help of a veterinarian. You can feel confident using Warrior Mist on pets, large and small. It is ideal for use on dogs, cats, horses, and farm animals. Many veterinarians use Warrior Mist in their clinics for effective pain relief.
If you are a veterinarian, consider using Warrior Mist for your pet patients.
My wife Stefanie is a practicing acupuncturist. She uses and recommends Warrior Mist for her clients.
She frequently uses Warrior Mist in her practice for knee pain, shoulder pain, and back pain. What she often does is mix about five sprays (pumps) of Warrior Mist with about ten sprays of Magnesium Oil along with a dime-sized amount of carrier oil (like organic jojoba oil or coconut oil) in her palm.
She mixes the liquids in her palm (for amounts up to one tablespoon), but it can be mixed and stored a small container. For greater amounts, the ratios remain the same – about 2:1 Magnesium Oil to Warrior Mist – with correspondingly higher amounts of carrier oil. This is an excellent mixture because it combines the benefits of Warrior Mist and Magnesium Oil.
There is a slight chemical reaction that occurs when Warrior Mist mixes with Magnesium Oil. It is actually a warming effect. Stefanie likes it because the mixture is then applied warm, which relaxes muscles and opens pores for better absorption. No “warm up” is necessary and clients seem to appreciate the mixture’s warmth.
The mixture (of Warrior Mist, Magnesium Oil, and carrier oil) may be applied directly on affected areas with high rates of success. Clients themselves can obtain Warrior Mist and Magnesium Oil to make this mixture at home. Using a carrier oil is helpful, but not required because Warrior Mist contains organic coconut and olive oils.
Warrior Mist works well mixed with Ancient Minerals magnesium oil.
Stefanie also finds Warrior Mist useful for clients suffering from headaches. In addition, she will apply straight Warrior Mist to the throat, lymph nodes, or upper chest area for clients dealing with respiratory issues. Indeed, she applies it to these areas on herself when she feels she may be fighting or coming down with something.
Use Warrior Mist on clean, dry, lotion-free skin. The DMSO in the formula acts as a solvent carrying substances on skin into the body. This allows natural ingredients in the formula to penetrate into painful areas. Wash hands and the application area (or wipe with a damp cloth) before treatment. Avoid using carrier oils with toxic ingredients (like synthetic preservatives) that could be pulled into the body.
Stefanie tells her clients not to put anything on their skin that they would not eat. That is, use only natural oils and products containing ingredients that are natural and organic. A useful resource to determine what products are most natural is the Skin Deep Database on the Environmental Working Group website (www.ewg.org).
If you are a health care professional who deals with clients requiring pain relief, please contact HPDI to request a sample bottle of Warrior Mist. See how well this effective pain relief formula works for your clients.
Wash hands, shake bottle, then spray on clean, dry skin. Massage area to assist absorption.
WARRIOR MIST FOR ATHLETES AND SPORTS
One group of people who love Warrior Mist is athletes, especially runners, triathletes, and other endurance athletes. Warrior Mist is useful for nearly all sports, including contact sports.
HPDI’s sponsored athlete, pro cyclist Irena Ossola, uses Warrior Mist regularly, especially during races and high-intensity training. She incorporates it into the sports massage she receives with reportedly good effects. She also states that it helps her with recovery.
Irena occasionally crashes her bicycle. This remains a hazard in her sport, she says. However, Warrior Mist has done much to help her joints, road rash and other abrasions, sore muscles, and to speed her recovery.
For purposes of athletes, the magnesium chloride in Warrior Mist can help support muscle health and recovery, and provide effective pain relief.
WARRIOR MIST SUMMARY
Dr. Hank Liers designed Warrior Mist as a natural formula containing ingredients known for providing effective pain relief. Given its wide applicability, topical application, natural ingredients, and proven history of use, Warrior Mist is ideal for personal use by consumers and in clinical settings for clients who require effective pain relief.
Warrior Mist is one of the most natural, effective pain relief products available to heath care professionals and consumers alike.
Warrior Mist comes in a 30 ml (1 oz) spray bottle which provides hundreds of applications. A single bottle typically lasts about two months.
Directions: Shake bottle before applying. Wash hands before and after use. Apply in a thin layer to a clean, dry, and lotion-free area needing support. Shave thick hair that may prevent absorption by the skin. Gently massage the area of application to assist absorption. Re-apply as needed 3–4 times daily. (Contains DMSO, a known solvent.)
BEYOND WARRIOR MIST: WARRIOR SLEEP & WARRIOR ENERGY
Warrior Mist is one of three Warrior Health products offered by Health Products Distributors. Dr. Hank Liers formulated these Warrior products, all of which are topicals requiring ultra-low doses (ULD) by design: Warrior Mist, Warrior Sleep, and Warrior Energy.
Warrior Mist, Warrior Sleep, and Warrior Roll-On Energy are topical formulas.
Warrior Sleep (9 ml) is an effective, natural sleep and relaxation formula having no drug-like side effects (compared to conventional sleep aids). Like Warrior Mist, you apply Warrior Sleep directly to skin (transdermal application) for rapid absorption. Warrior Sleep incorporates four natural ingredients for sleep: lavender oil, roman chamomile, magnesium, and melatonin. It uses DMSO and natural oils to carry these rest promoters into the body. Warrior Sleep contains: DMSO (99.999% pure), olive oil, distilled water, MSM, magnesium oil, lavender oil, lecithin, roman chamomile oil, coconut oil, and melatonin.
Warrior Sleep is an effective topical relaxation and sleep formula.
Warrior Roll-On Energy (9 ml) is a unique topical roll-on energy product. It is formulated to provide five hours of mental and physical enhancement. One bottle will last 30 days when used twice daily. Warrior Roll-On Energy contains: DMSO (99.999% pure), organic aloe vera gel (inner fillet), distilled water, organic extra virgin olive oil, peppermint oil, magnesium chloride with trace ocean minerals, MSM, organic coconut oil, caffeine (80% from green tea), soy lecithin (high phosphatide and 98% oil free), glutathione (reduced), Vitamin B6 (from pyridoxal-5’-phosphate), Vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamin), and Folinic Acid (from calcium folinate).
Warrior Sleep and Warrior Roll-On Energy contain built-in roll-on applicators.
I use all three Warrior products depending on daily needs. Warrior Sleep is an effective sleep aid, but is also effective for relaxation or applied before bedtime to prepare for sleep. I apply to the neck base, upper throat, and temples. We have noticed it nourishes and smooths facial skin. This is due to its synergistic blend of ingredients, including melatonin, MSM, and organic carriers oils.
Warrior Roll-On Energy is uniquely energizing. It differs dramatically from most energy products, or coffee, tea, or chocolate. The formula utilizes ultra-low dose (ULD) technology to carry energizing ingredients (including caffeine from green tea) rapidly into the body. Yet, unlike caffeinated drinks, users typically experience no let down or rapid drop in energy after using it. Warrior Roll-On Energy provides non-jarring, sustained energy during the day (up to six hours).
Health Care Professionals: Please contact HPDI (1-800-228-4265) to request sample(s) of Warrior Mist, Warrior Sleep, Warrior Roll-On Energy, or other products in which you are interested.
