Irwin Naturals Pledges to Give Away $1,000,000* Worth of CBD Products

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Klee Irwin, founder of Irwin Naturals and author of Pain Nation, announced today that, in celebration of the federal legalization of hemp, he is pledging to give away $1,000,000* worth of CBD products when the bill is signed by President Trump.

"Our mission is to spread health to the world through plant medicine. And I can't think of a better way to celebrate than to give something back to our Country – a nation in an emergency state of emotional and physical health," said Klee Irwin, founder of Irwin Naturals. "There are, arguably, five plant molecules that have changed the course of how we eat and live, and which have had a massive impact (some positive some not so much) on human history. These are alcohol, sugar, theobromine from chocolate, nicotine and caffeine. CBD will be the sixth. It will become ubiquitous in our food supply because it will have a profound impact on our health and wellness – on our society, really."

The same day President Trump signs the bill into law, Irwin Naturals will start giving away $1,000,000 of free CBD on a first come first serve basis. Consumers can sign up to get their free CBD sample while supplies last. Irwin Naturals will pay for everything except shipping, handling and processing costs of $9.95. 

Under the leadership of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky), Mike Conaway (R-Texas), Pat Roberts (R- Kan.), Collin Peterson (D-Minn.), James Comer (D-Kentucky) Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) and many others, the bipartisan 2018 Farm Bill (which also includes the Hemp Farming Act of 2018 legalizing hemp and hemp derivatives for the first time in over 80 years) was approved by the Senate and the House and now awaits President Trumps signature.

Japanese Microbiologist Proves Probiotics Effect on Bone Density 15 Years Before Swedish Study is Credited for Discovery

Japanese Microbiologist Proves Probiotics Effect on Bone Density 15 Years Before Swedish Study is Credited for Discovery

August 30, 2018 - Dallas, TX –Many news sources including the New York Times and Science Daily recently reported significant research findings from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden stating that the “first-ever study in humans” had demonstrated probiotics effect on bone health.

However fifteen years before the Swedish study, microbiologist Dr. Iichiroh Ohhira’s research, “The Influence of Lactic Acid Bacteria (OM-X) on Bone Structure” was published in the February 2003 Journal of Applied Nutrition proving the correlation between probiotics and increased bone density. 

Dr. Ohhira: A Pioneering Genius in Probiotic Science

Dr. Ohhira is proving to be one of the world’s most influential researchers in the history of probiotic science as his discoveries continue to be confirmed. He intrinsically understood nature’s restorative timeline when developing a 3-year natural temperature fermentation method that produces herculean strains of probiotics and Postbiotics Metabolites, recently proven to be the most effective aspect of supplementation for digestive health. Research conducted this year revealed Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics® contain over 400 health-promoting postbiotic metabolites.       

In 1973 Dr. Ohhira developed OM-X (Ohhira’s Mountain Extract), a fermented whole food probiotic containing 12 select Lactic Acid Bacteria (including his patented strain, TH-10).  This whole food, culture-rich amalgam contains live, viable strains, and postbiotic metabolites, yet require no refrigeration.  It was encapsulated for ease of consumption and then sealed in airtight blister packs for convenience and safety.  Twenty-seven years later, natures ‘perfect probiotic’ was brought to America by Essential Formulas and renamed Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics®. 

As a revered scientist and humanitarian in Japan, Dr. Ohhira received many awards and Presidential Citations while living.  He was the first Japanese honored with the prestigious GUSI Peace Prize, Southeast Asia’s equivalent of the Nobel Peace Prize.  

Dr. Ohhira’s fascination with the amazing health benefits of fermented foods, and his determination to merge nature and science for the good of humanity made it possible to achieve his lifelong goal of “bringing excellent health and long life to all.”

Innovating Toothbrushes by Dr. Plotka

Innovating Toothbrushes by Dr. Plotka

Dr. Plotka’s brushes claim to keep your teeth clean with two innovative features: 1) antimicrobial technology where the bristles on each toothbrush are infused with natural bacteria-fighting silver that kills 99.9% of bacteria within six hours after brushing; and 2) ultra thin (1 micrometer at the tip) flossing bristles which allow them to reach areas that other toothbrushes often miss. Made of polyester, they last longer than traditional toothbrush bristles (up to 4 months instead of 3). These polyester bristles bend better than the nylon bristles found in most other brushes on the market. The inner bristles, thin as a human hair, gently brush away food and plaque in places other brushes miss while the outer thicker bristles ensure complete cleaning of gum and teeth.

Dr. Plotka’s toothbrushes come in a smaller youth size as well. Dr. Ronald Plotka designed this innovative toothbrush as part of his thriving 40+ year Boston-based dental practice.

*An untreated toothbrush can grow up to 100 million microorganisms between brushings.

Dr. Plotka's toothbrushes can be found on their website and on AMAZON.
