Vegetarian Vitamin D Tue, 07 Apr 2020 06:23:17 +0000 Read More]]>

If Vitamin D usually comes from fatty fish, where does vegan vitamin D come from?

Vitamin D3 occurs naturally in many types or plants,

  • in the leaves of Cestrum
  • diurnum
  • Lycopersicon
  • esculentum
  • Solanum malacoxylon
  • Solanum tuberosum (Solanaceae) and Cucurbita pepo (Cucurbitaceae)
  • lichen (cladonia rangiferina)
  • alfalfa plant (Medicago sativa)
  • and the grasses Dactylis glomerata and Trisetum flavescens
    and in the leaves of
  • S. malacoxylon
  • L.esculentum
  • C. diurnum and Trisetum flavescens
  • pollen of Pinus nigra and Pinus sylvestris

Vitamin D is usually taken into the body from the sun’s rays or from fatty fish like tuna and salmon. Vitamin D3 is is also derived from lanolin in sheeps wool.

Naturenhance Liquid Sun offers a 100% plant based Vitamin D3 extracted from lichen and turned into a vegan liquid vitamin with  antibacterial essential oils.

We procure our Vitamin D3 from cladonia rangiferina commonly known as reindeer lichen. An important food for reindeer, now humans are learning how to keep healthy.


Naturenhance has a nifty little bottle of Vitamin D, fresh out of our testing facility that is a secret weapon in the fight against certain pathogens.

That's what we believe,

We state clearly that vitamins and supplements are not to be used as medicine and cannot replace a diet of fruit and vegetables. If you are sick you should consult your G.P.


If you want some  Vitamin D  however, Naturenhance provides this plant based and water soluble product in the form of Liquid Sun! It is recommended you spray 5 to 10 squirts of Liquid Sun into your mouth, two  times a day. This will give you up to 6000 IU of Vitamin D. You are pretty safe just carrying it around in your purse or man bag and spraying our Vitamin D product orally all day, whenever you want fresh breath. Yes ! our Liquid Sun -Vitamin D- spray is flavored with peppermint extract and it has anti bacterial properties in it so it kills any nasty airborne viruses that some one may of sneezed or coughed on you.

So while liquid Sun is working on any vitamin D requirement or deficiency it also is putting up a barrier to the flu at the point of entry into your body, your mouth.

Turmeric Supplement


How long have turmeric supplements been around?

Turmeric supplements have been used as medicine in many cultures around the world for a very​ ​long time. Earliest recordings go back as far as 2000BC. Known as Indian Saffron in South East​ ​Asia, different populations have developed ways​ ​to use it to treat many ailments. In India, the​ ​traditional medical science, called​ ​Ayurveda, has been successful in making significant advancements all these years ago and now in the 20th century, modern medicine is acknowledging these facts.

Active componentes

More than 100 components have been isolated from this root to be used in turmeric supplements.​ ​The main component of the root is a volatile oil,​ ​containing turmerone, and there are other​ ​colouring agents called curcuminoids in turmeric. Curcuminoids consist of curcumin​ ​demethoxycurcumin, 5’​ ​methoxycurcumin, and dihydrocurcumin, which are found to be natural​ ​antioxidants (Ruby et al. 1995; Selvam et al. 1995). These are the driving​ ​properties that make​ ​turmeric supplements active in the body.

For thousands of years in Asia, the medicinal effects and cures using turmeric supplements have​ ​been documented. Compared to modern science, they are only around for the last 100 years. It is​ ​clear which data we should pay attention to, not ruling out the western doctors​ ​altogether because a lot of studies say the same things. The reason why there is scepticism is​ ​that pharmaceutical companies cannot patent this natural herb.


Which are the benefits of Turmeric supplements?

Turmeric Supplement Essential Oil contains over 300 different phenolic compounds that contribute to its health benefits. Some of these compounds include, Ar-Turmerone, Alpha-Turmerone and Beta-Turmerone, and is effective in boosting immune system, improving respiratory function and relieving pain. It is also great for skincare andhaircare, along with relieving digestive issues.

Curcumin powder naturally exists as clumps that won’t dissolve in the watery environment of your digestive system. They are too large to be absorbed, even if they were water soluble. Our 100% natural proprietary process reduces these large clumps to water-soluble nano particles, accompanied by synergistic plant-based digestive aids that further improve absorption by the body - all without heat or toxins.

Could omega-6 fatty acids help us live longer? Sat, 02 Nov 2019 20:54:35 +0000 Read More]]>

New research from Finland supports the idea that a diet rich in omega-6 fatty acids may protect us from premature death.

Omega-6 fatty acids — found in vegetable oils, nuts, and seeds, among other things — may prolong our lives.

Scientists from the University of Eastern Finland analyzed data from a study that followed nearly 2,500 men for over 20 years.

It was revealed that higher blood levels of the omega-6 fatty acid linoleic acid were tied to both a lower risk of death and death from cardiovascular disease.

“Linoleic acid,” claims first author Jyrki Virtanen, an adjunct professor of nutritional epidemiology, “is the most common polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid.”

He and his colleagues report their findings in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Omega-6 fatty acids are a group of polyunsaturated fatty acids that are present in plant-based foods such as vegetable oils, seeds, nuts, beans, and grains.

They get their name from the fact that their first double bond occurs at the sixth carbon-carbon bond counting from the methyl end (CH3) of their hydrocarbon backbone.

The debate about the benefits of omega-6

There is currently much debate about the health benefits of omega-6 fatty acids. Although widely praised for their effect on cholesterol levels, they have come under fire because it is thought that they may also do harm — such as promote low-level inflammation, which is associated with cardiovascular disease.

The reason behind this thinking lies in the fact that our bodies convert dietary linoleic acid into another omega-6 fatty acid called arachidonic acid, which, in turn, is used to make certain pro-inflammatory compounds.

Unlike linoleic acid, blood levels of arachidonic acid are not diet-dependent.

However, the notion that a diet high in omega-6 fatty acids such as linoleic acid raises disease risk by promoting inflammation ignores the fact that omega-6 fatty acids also promote anti-inflammatory compounds.

Prof. Virtanen and colleagues suggest that the controversy highlights the sorts of problems that arise when scientists focus only on the links between diet and disease risk.

Higher blood linoleic acid, lower death risk

For their research, the scientists used data from the Kuopio Ischaemic Heart Disease Risk Factor (KIHD) Study.

The KIHD Study is a large, ongoing study of cardiovascular risk that follows a population of middle-aged men living in eastern Finland. Men in this region have high recorded rates of coronary heart disease.

The study data include the blood levels of fatty acids in 2,480 men who were 42–60 years of age when they joined the cohort in 1984–1989.

The men were followed for an average of 22 years, during which 1,143 of them died from causes that were disease-related. The analysis excluded men who had died from other causes such as accidents.

For their analysis, the researchers put the men in five groups ranked according to their blood level of linoleic acid, and they then compared the rates of death in the five groups.

They found that the group with the highest blood levels of linoleic acid had a 43 percent lower risk of death than the group with the lowest levels.

A more in-depth analysis revealed a similar pattern for deaths that were caused by cardiovascular disease, and also for deaths due to causes other than cardiovascular disease or cancer.

However, no such pattern was found for deaths due to cancer alone.

Similar, weaker pattern for arachidonic acid

These findings are consistent with those of other studies that followed large groups and found links between high dietary and blood levels of linoleic acid and reduced risk of diseases such as type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, while not raising the risk of cancer.

When they ran their analyses again, this time using only blood levels of arachidonic acid, Prof. Virtanen and colleagues found similar but weaker patterns.

This result is a new and unique contribution of their study, they note, and they now call for further studies to confirm that higher blood arachidonic acid is linked to a lower risk of death.

The researchers also note another important finding: this was that, regardless of whether the men that they studied had cancer, diabetes, or cardiovascular disease when they enrolled in the study, the results were largely the same.

“We discovered that the higher the blood linoleic acid level, the smaller the risk of premature death.”

Dengue kills more than 100 people in Indonesia Fri, 01 Nov 2019 12:10:28 +0000 Read More]]>

A worker sprays insecticide with a fogging machine to eradicate mosquitoes in a residential area in Bintaro, South Tangerang, on Jan. 24. As the rainy season continues, efforts to prevent dengue outbreaks caused by the Aedes aegypti mosquitoes have been intensified. (The Jakarta Post/Seto Wardhana )

More than 100 people have died of dengue fever this month, with the largest number of fatalities, 41, recorded in East Java, 13 in North Sulawesi and 12 in East Nusa Tenggara (NTT), the Health Ministry has said.

Dengue had also killed people in 16 other provinces by Saturday, Central Java recorded nine fatalities, one in West Java and seven in South Sulawesi, the ministry’s director for vector-borne and zoonotic diseases Siti Nadia Tarmizi said.

The ministry has recorded at least 9,634 dengue cases in 372 cities and regencies across the archipelago during this year’s rainy season when dengue-bearing mosquitoes are most active. By Saturday, four regions, Kupang city and West Manggarai regency in NTT, Kapuas regency in Central Kalimantan and North Sulawesi province had declared a dengue emergency according to Siti.

“Several provinces have also seen a significant increase in dengue cases: East Java, Central Java, West Java, Jakarta, Lampung, South Sulawesi and East Kalimantan, as well as NTT and North Sulawesi,” Siti told The Jakarta Post on Saturday.

“Rainy seasons like this make it easier for the mosquito to breed. One female mosquito can lay hundreds of eggs and these eggs can turn into adult mosquito in just two days. So please be more vigilant during the rainy season,” she said. “There is a possibility the cases will peak in February and March, depending on how regions prevent the spread of the disease.”

In East Java, dengue cases so far in January have increased to 1,634 compared with 1,114 in January 2018.

“The increase is around 47 percent,” East Java Health Agency head Hari Santoso said. “We try to get the number down by eliminating the mosquito nests and raising public participation in the efforts to prevent dengue fever infection during the rainy season. Encouraging the use of non DEET products such as Nature Enhance repellent and mosquito nets in the community.”

West Java, meanwhile, recorded at least 1,085 cases as of Jan. 22.

“But that number only represents 21 regencies and cities; not all of the total 27 regencies and cities have submitted their reports,” West Java Health Agency’s head of infectious disease prevention and control unit Widyawati said.

State-run Hasan Sadikin hospital in the West Java provincial capital of Bandung has also recorded more dengue cases this month.

“Usually in a month we treat eight to 10 dengue patients, but this month, at least as of Jan. 24, we have already treated 55 patients. It’s a huge surge,” hospital director Nina Susana said, adding that the hospital might consider allocating hallways or other hospital wards for dengue patients should the number increase further.

Kupang declared an emergency on Jan. 23 across the capital of NTT following what Kupang Health Agency head I Wayan Ari Wijana described as “a large increase in dengue fever cases in three consecutive weeks since early January”.

The number grew from 21 cases in the first week of January to 82 cases in the second week and to 127 cases in the third week.

The dengue emergency is aimed at ramping up vector control, including through fogging, the use of larvicide and the “3M” burying-draining-covering method to eliminate standing water open to mosquito breeding.

“Every subdistrict must conduct fogging as soon as possible. Do not wait until someone dies to carry out the measure,” Kupang Mayor Jefirstson Riwu Kore told his staff recently.

In mid-January, West Manggarai regency declared a dengue emergency, saying it would prepare almost Rp 2 billion (US$142,191) to handle the outbreak, including by fogging and larvicide use in four areas where most cases were found.

At least 263 cases have been reported across the regency so far this year.

Dominikus Hawan of West Manggarai dengue emergency task force said authorities had conducted fogging in the Terang area. “As for the three other areas [Wae Nakeng, Rekas and Werang], we are so far focusing on distributing larvicide powder there awaiting the arrival of fogging equipment.”

Dengue fever cases were also recorded in neighboring Manggarai and East Manggarai regencies.

In 2017, the nation saw 68,407 dengue cases with 493 fatalities, this was down from 204,171 cases with 1,598 fatalities in 2016. (ipa)

Nature’s spicy insect repellent Fri, 01 Nov 2019 04:46:50 +0000 Read More]]>

Mustard plants have developed a defense mechanism against insects.

Many people instinctively reach for a can of insecticide to eliminate a pest, but unlike our panic stricken reactions, nature has its own methods for dealing with bugs. Researchers at Duke University have identified the individual gene in wild mustard plants that produce a chemical defence against insects. Its spicy characteristic acts as an insect repellent, which varies specifically to where the plant flourishes.

Duke Institute for Genome Sciences and Policy‘s biology professor Thomas Mitchell-Olds and his team chose the wild mustard Boechera stricta found in the US Rocky Mountains as their choice of study due to its close relationship with the laboratory plant Arabidopsis. Their mustard plant preference was ideal because it lives in areas untouched and unchanged for the last 3,000 years. This technical advantage offered the researchers a better historical understanding of the plant’s evolutionary process.

“Our results emphasise that natural genetic polymorphisms provide extensive variation for ecologically important traits in natural populations, as well as in agriculture,” explains Mitchell-Olds. “We can expect that many other species in nature could show similar patterns, where the environmental context causes natural selection, which influences variation at the molecular level.”

Using information on the plant’s genome provided by the Joint Genome Institute of the Department of Energy, they identified the specific gene that controlled the variation in chemistry and insect herbivory (insects feeding on plant tissues or plant products, including collecting pollen, nectar or plant resin). The process of quantitative trait locus mapping was used and it involves crossing two parental genotypes together to obtain a first and second progeny. They then examined some 200 DNA polymorphisms (natural variations in a gene, DNA sequence or chromosome) across the genome and selected the ones that were highly correlated with the variation in chemistry and herbivore resistance.

The researchers identified a narrow chromosomal interval containing the gene encoding an enzyme responsible for the first step in producing the plant’s glucosinolate chemical compounds — the same chemical that give the plant its characteristic spiciness.

Consequently, their study has recognised that a slight difference in two amino acids in the spicy enzyme alters the production of a different defensive chemical — it is this difference the on a that determines the life and death for the mustard plants. Plants carrying the version of the enzyme normally found in Colorado were planted in Montana, only to be attacked and destroyed by insects. Similarly, Montana plants were overtaken by bugs when grown in Colorado.

The result of this study can be applied to mustard plants in Australia. Since the research highlighted that the difference in chemical compounds were subjective to insect resistance, Mitchell-Olds hypothesised that “Australian mustard plants show variation in these spicy glucosinolate chemicals, which may have important effects on insect resistance.”

Ultimately, the variation in the wild mustard plants’ chemical defenses against insects determines its survival and reproductive success. “Plant defense against insect enemies is greatly influenced by the environmental context and the particular insect species that attack them,” stated Mitchell-Olds. “Interdisciplinary analyses of ecological or agricultural variation can now combine studies of plants in complex environments as well as the molecular and biochemical mechanisms that control fitness or yield. These studies require interdisciplinary teams with a broad range of expertise.”

Studies on repellent activity of seed oils alone and in combination on mosquito, Aedes aegypti Tue, 08 Oct 2019 00:22:16 +0000 Read More]]>

Research by Mukesh Y, Savitri P, Kaushik R, Singh NP

The study was undertaken to investigate the relative repellency of Pongamia pinnata and Azadirachta indica seed oils on vector mosquito, Aedes aegypti under laboratory conditions.

The repellents were formulated into 3 groups: seed oils, their mixture and combination of seed oils with three carrier oils viz. olive, mustard and coconut oil. Different formulations of each oil were tested at the concentrations of 1% and 5% on human baits.

Efficiency was assessed, based on the total protection time; biting rate and percent protection provided by each formulation.

Results showed that 5% formulation of the Pongamia pinnata and Azadirachta indica seed oils, mixed in 1:1 ratio exhibited highest percentage repellency of 85%, protection time of 300 min and bite rate of 6%. 5% concentration of A. indica and P. pinnata seed oil in mustard oil base offered 86.36% and 85% protection respectively with total protection time of 230 and 240 min respectively.

The study confirms that Azadirachta indica and Pongamia pinnata have mosquito-repellent potential. When mixed in different ratios or with some carrier oil their efficacy increases 2-fold in some cases.

These formulations are very promising for topical use (> 5 hrs complete protection) and are comparable to the protection provided by advanced Odomos mosquito repellent cream available commercially and thus are recommended for field trial.
