We recently met up with the Quicksilver team at the USA CBD Expo and learned more about the benefits of their scientific health supplements.

Watch the video below and then read our recap of product notes to learn more!

Quicksilver Scientific combines nature’s nutrients with the power of science to deliver the most effective supplements and detoxification protocols on the market.

That’s why we carry their top-of-the-line products at Brookside Holistic Solutions in Kansas City.  Below are the products and descriptions (taken from the Quicksilver site) that are discussed in the video, with notes from Stephanie at Quicksilver.

Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract

“A THC-free, broad spectrum hemp oil extract consisting of the suite of phytocannabinoids and terpenes naturally present in hemp. We included additional beta-caryophyllene, the most common terpenes found in Cannabis to extend the potency and action of the extract without the need for THC.”

  • THC free containing minor cannabinoids, and a high terpene profile
  • Great for those who are routinely drug tested and concerned about passing

Full Spectrum Hemp Extract

“A comprehensive, full spectrum hemp oil extract, featuring the sought after cannabidiol (CBD) as well as the suite of phytocannabinoids and terpenes naturally present in hemp. We’ve retained the Farm Bill compliant level of THC (<0.3) to boost therapeutic benefits without the psychogenic effects.”

  • Contains the full-spectrum, including CBD, CBD, CBG, etc., and more terpenes, creating the entourage effect.
  • Great for those who aren’t worried about drug testing.

Ultra Binder, Universal Toxin Binder

“Ultra Binder answers that need with a comprehensive blend of natural materials that can effectively bind the wide array of toxins we encounter in everyday life. This may allow our body to detoxify safely and naturally.”

  • Binds to mold, toxins and pesticides in gut
  • Intestinal metal and heavy metal detox
  • Do not take with food or medications as it can bind to those, causing them to not work properly
  • For those with detox or sulfur intolerance, the Ultra Binder Low Sulfur is a more gentle version

LipoCalm

“LipoCalm is a premium sleep formula containing a blend of PharmaGABA® and powerful botanicals perfectly calibrated to ease the body into a restorative sleep.”

  • Fantastic for sleep
  • Works well with CBD
  • Good for those with high stress and tendency to panic

About Liposomes

“Liposomes are microscopic single to multilayer spheres made of phospholipids (the basic building blocks of cell membranes). Phospholipids encapsulate a compound, such as glutathione, in order to bypass the digestive processes that normally degrade or limit the compound’s absorption. Liposomes demonstrate the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, deposit their cargo intracellularly, and enhance lymphatic circulation of therapeutic compounds. Additionally, the phospholipids that compose the liposome fuse with and feed the cell membranes. Providing phospholipids in this way ensures proper membrane function to facilitate the absorption of nutrients and the excretion of cellular waste products and toxins. In fact, phospholipid therapy, using both injectable forms and oral forms, has a long and solid clinical history for repair and maintenance of liver function, circulatory health, and neurological health.

At their highest expression, liposomes bring the power of intravenous therapy into a convenient oral delivery. However, all liposomes are not created equally. Most liposomes on the market use low grades of phospholipids, e.g. raw lecithin, instead of the high-phosphatidylcholine phospholipid mixes necessary for a good liposome. Nutraceutical manufacturers also typically use cheap shear methods resulting in large (200–600nm), poorly-absorbed particles.

Quicksilver Delivery Systems improves upon basic liposomal delivery technology with smaller, more stable, tightly distributed single-layer spheres (called unilamellar vesicles) made from the highest-grade ingredients available. These small vesicles begin absorbing as soon as they hit your mouth, so you can get high absorption before they are altered by the harsh processes in the intestines. Quicksilver Scientific uses the same high-tech equipment, rigorous processes, and tight particle size controls used by pharmaceutical companies. Look for the clear difference of Quicksilver Delivery Systems.”
