What Are Bio-enhancers?

The term bioenhancer is an ancient Ayurvedic word that quite simply means the growing effect of a drug. Bio-enhancers are chemical entities that help improve the bioavailability (the magnitude and degree drugs enter the system) when mixed with drugs or supplements. Bio-enhancers can help to increase the bioavailability of a drug or supplement when taken together without any adverse effects on the pharmacologic action.

What do bio-enhancers do?

Scientists are becoming increasingly interested in herbal bio-enhancers due to their many benefits. Firstly, they are non-toxic and effective at low dosages which makes them easier to formulate and enhance either medication or nutrient's pharmacologic function. Herbal bio-enhancers have the potential to improve the bioefficacy and bioavailability of a large group of drugs including antiviral, antifungal, antibiotics, anti-cancerous and antituberculosis drugs and supplements.

How can bio-enhancers help you?

As the body becomes resistant to drugs it means that doses need to increase to achieve the same effect. Adding a bioenhancer to an individual’s regime means having benefits such as a reduction in drug dosage and frequency which in turn saves money. A reduction in drug resistance problems and also limiting adverse or toxic reactions. Bio-enhancers can be cultivated and procured easily. They are also economical and non-addictive. Their usage is safe and effective and can be used in a variety of applications.

Our bio-enhancers

Some of our products act as bio-enhancers at One Life Foods our Shilajit/Shilajit blends and Full Spectrum CBD oil/CBD pastes are potent bio-enhancers/potentiators. Potentiation is the process of making a substance more powerful. Shilajit is a powerful bio-enhancer and can enhance the absorption of compounds such as CBD/cannabinoids and other beneficial phytonutrients found in cannabis sativa extract. Shilajit can also be paired with nutrients commonly used in pre-workout formulations, to give its own energy-enhancing benefits, as well as increase the absorption and efficacy of other ingredients.

Due to its unique makeup, including metabolites dibenzo alpha pyrones, Shilajit has the ability to increase the efficacy of certain substances when taken together. This is the reason why we continue to formulate our Shilajit blends with important adaptogens and nootropics such as CBD, Ashwagandha, Lion’s Mane, Tongkat Ali, and Horny Goat Weed.

In addition to CBD Full Spectrum oils and pastes contain a full range of other important cannabinoids. One of these is Cannabichromene (CBC) is another of the ‘Big 6’ Cannabinoids, but often unheard of. Discovered just over 50 years ago, CBC is a non-psychoactive grandchild of CBGA, found in relatively low levels in cannabis plants. It is thought CBC works in a similar way to CBD, and by binding with our body’s own Cannabinoid system (ECS) indirectly and through the stimulation of endocannabinoids.
