Waiakea was Hawaii’s first premium volcanic water supplier. Founded in 2012 by Ryan Emmons when he figured out the water that he was drinking during the summers and winters in Hawaii was unique and special. Waiakea water comes from a source southwest of the town of Hilo, on the big island of Hawaii.
This precious water is filtered through the Mauna Loa volcano, which gives it a rich mineral composition and an alkaline pH. It contains sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium. Each bottle contains 30mg of silica, which gives the water a soft and silky feel. Being naturally alkaline the pH is between 7.8 and 8.8.
Waiakea Water uses sustainable packaging for its waters. The company is one of the first premium beverages in the world that is certified Carbon Neutral. It means that there is little to no release of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere during production, planting trees can offset carbon dioxide emissions. The packaging material used is made out of 100% recycled polyurethane terephthalate. It takes 85% less energy to make bottles out of these materials compared to making bottles out of new plastic. Also, not as much carbon emissions are produced and the bottles are BPA free.
The unique water that Waiakea supplies is responsibly sourced from an aquifer that has a 1.4 billion gallon recharge rate. The bottling facility is ran on 33% renewable energy.
Since the inception of Waiakea Water the founder, Ryan Emmons, always wanted to add a social aspect to the company to address the problem of people not getting enough clean drinking water.
Waiakea partnered with a charity called Pump Aid to try and help out communities with this problem. Together they have donated 650 liters of clean water to communities in need. Access to clean, safe water is available to over 1.3 million people in rural Africa. 3200 elephant pumps help to do this. Thanks to their achievements more than 500 million liters of clean water has been donated to date.
A practicing physician, Dr. Kristy Applehans assumed a seat on the board of the Los Angeles chapter of the American Red Cross at the beginning of this year. In addition to her practice and duties with the Red Cross Dr. Applehans is employed by Herbalife in the company’s Global Post-Market Safety Surveillance Department.
Herbalife was established by Mark Hughes. The company’s first product was a protein shake to control weight. Herbalife’s mission statement is to “Change the nutritional habits of the world.”
As a doctor, Kristy Applehans fully understands the importance of hospitals having an adequate supply of blood for transfusions. Herbalife Nutrition has teamed with the Red Cross to educate the public on the need to donate blood. The program Herbalife and the Red Cross launched is called #MissingType. The campaign’s objective is to ensure hospitals have enough blood on hand when it is needed most.
It seems only natural to Dr. Applehan that Herbalife and the Red Cross be allied. To explain this belief she cites the goals of her employer and the Red Cross have in common. Both are devoted to the preservation of life and health and share a commitment to bringing people together to help their neighbors in times of crisis.
Are you are interested in giving a little of yourself to save a life? Contact the American Red Cross and get on the schedule to give blood at a blood drive near you.
Five years after Mark Hughes began selling his protein shake from the trunk of his car in 1980 Herbalife was realizing $423 million in sales. After the company began offering its products in Asia, Europe, New Zealand, and Mexico their sales more than doubled. Today, sports drinks, protein bars, vitamins, and other personal care products are part of Herbalife’s product line.
Co-founded by Dr. Leonard Guarente, the director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research, Elysium Health is a consumer health company. The research of Elysium Health is guided by the company’s scientific advisory board. The company is focused on translating advances in science and technology into clinically-validated health products that work.
Currently, Elysium Health makes the supplement Basis. Basis is made up of two ingredients, nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene, which is proven to increase and sustain levels of NAD+ in our cells. This essential coenzyme is essential to many of our cellular functions like DNA maintenance, circadian rhythms, and energy creation. Our levels of NAD+ decline naturally as we age, and those functions break down.
To make sure that Basis works as advertised, Elysium Health put the supplement through a clinical trial in 2016. During the trial, 120 subjects were divided into three even groups. Group one took two capsules of Basis, which is the recommended daily dose of the supplement. Group two took four capsules of the supplement, which is double the recommended daily dose of Basis. Group three took a placebo. Those who took the recommended dose of Basis during the trial had their NAD+ levels rise by an average of 40 percent and remain there for the duration of the trial.
Visit Elysium Health’s website to purchase Basis. The company sells Basis in a variety of monthly subscriptions, as well as in individual jars. Each jar contains 60 capsules (the recommended daily intake is two capsules). A standard monthly subscription costs $50 each month. Longer subscriptions cost more upfront but offer discounts on the monthly rate.
More information on Elysium Health, the company’s team of scientists, and the science behind Basis can be found on Elysium’s website.

THE NEW DAWN FOR MODERN DAY MEDICINE BY ERIC LEFKOFSKY.
Cancer has proven to be a menacing challenge with almost half the population in the U.S facing diagnosis in their lifetime. The number of diagnosed patients has been estimated to increase in the next years tremendously. With the aid of companies like Tempus co-founded by Eric Lefkosky advancements have been realized in the modern technology field.
The company aimed to revolutionize the delivery of cancer care. They developed a system that analyzes a patient’s clinical information and molecular data. The struggle they had to face was the collection and storage of crucial details of cancer patients. The trick was to develop a software that promotes human genome sequencing that fights the disease at a cellular and molecular level which has clues for many things making it easier to combat cancer.
Previously this used to be expensive in the past years but with the advancements in science and technology this has reduced, and it is set to be more affordable to patients through Tempus. It assures that doctors will be able to offer effective treatment to cancer patients. They will also be able to discern between which medicines and treatments are better suited compared to others.
Eric Lefkofsky (born 1969) is an accomplished person and talented scientist in his right. Having attained high honors after graduating from the University of Michigan and a Juris Doctor’s degree from University of Michigan Law School. Despite achieving this, he still did not venture into law instead into the technology revolution. This decision got initiated especially when his wife, Elizabeth, was diagnosed with breast cancer. Lacking an up-close and personal experience with the treatment of cancer, he took note of the poor state that existed between patient’s data collection and the storage regarding the technology employed. The amount of data generated and collected was enormous. The problem came when handling the data collected to deliver treatment.

In these types of screenings, high frequency sound waves are transmitted to the region that requires check up in the body and echoes are recorded. They use these kinds of screenings to do;
i. Carotid artery screening
ii. Peripheral Arterial Disease PAD also known as the hardening of arteries
iii. Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms
Finger Stick Blood Screenings
In these kinds of screenings, a person’s soft pad of the finger is pricked and a few drops of blood are collected and send to the laboratory. Life Line Screenings uses clean and standard instruments that are recommended by professionals and other stakeholders in this field. They use these kinds of screenings to;
i. Test for cholesterol. They measure (HDL) good cholesterol, (LDL)bad cholesterol and triglycerides.
ii. Measure the amount of glucose levels in the blood
iii. C-Reactive Protein (an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease)
iv. Kidney function
v. Liver function
This kind of screening is used to detect fibrillation which is also known as an irregular heartbeat, a condition that is significant in the risk of stroke increase. They conduct an EKG electrode screening which is quick, non-invasive and requires no removal of clothes. They also provide bio-metrics such as blood pressure, waist size, and body mass index BMI. Other tests are also offered on request.

This company uses Ultrasound technology for abdominal aortic aneurysm, carotid artery disease, ankle-brachial, and bone marrow density screenings.
The other type of screening method offered by Life Line Screening is finger-stick blood screening. This method includes pricking one’s finger with a needle and then taking the blood provided in order to test it. The method is used for complete lipid panel, glucose, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, and elevated liver enzyme screenings.
