GLOSSARY

Cannabidiol (CBD)

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of more than one hundred non-psychotic cannabinoids that can be extracted from female cannabis plants. It has a long pharmacological history in many historical natural healing traditions.  CBD is said to have anti-inflammatory, anxiety-relieving and anti-nausea effects. Possible antipsychotic effects are currently also part of studies. It is also part of the CBD oils we offer together with other natural active ingredients from the hemp plant. It is ideal as a dietary supplement to maintain inner peace and not to let stress get too close to you, it also supports a calm and balanced sleep.

CBD is not to be confused with tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive substance that has given this plant a strained reputation. The extracts we offer are FREE of THC and therefore have no consciousness-altering or addictive effect.

Non-alcoholic disinfectant

We use an electrochemically treated salt solution, which after this activation process has a disinfecting effect.  This disinfecting effect is based on "activated chlorine" which comes from the salt solution and is much gentler than common disinfectants based on alcohol and hydrogen peroxide. The finished application solution has a bactericidal, virucidal and fungicidal effect. It is free of odorous substances, solvents, alcohols, preservatives and colorants, pH neutral and shows almost no undesirable effects with surfaces of all kinds to be disinfected.

Log Level

It goes without saying that the disinfectant we use is certified and corresponds to a germ count reduction higher than Log Level 5, and thus falls under the legal definition of a hygienically effective disinfectant.

VitaminD3

The production of vitamin D, more precisely vitamin D3, is usually based on Lanolin, a raw material, which is a compound of wool wax, and a by-product of wool production. Lanolin has been used since ancient times for creams, lotions and other cosmetics. It contains a relatively high concentration of cholesterol. The body's own cholesterol is converted in the skin to vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) by UV-B radiation. Cholesterol from lanolin is today mainly used for the production of Vitamin D3, by exposing it to UV-B.

A vegetarian or vegan alternative for vitamin D3 sources are fungi and liches, these naturally contain the substance ergosterol (provitamin D2). From this raw material vitamin D3 can be produced.

However, the production process is more complex and cost intensive. VitmaninD3 deficiency causes fatigue, hair loss, nervousness and visual impairment and is now a widespread problem due to our modern sunlight-poor lifestyle. It also used in high doses against multiple sclerosis (MS) and is part of studies as a treatment. Further studies, related to the current SARS-CoV-2 ("COVID-19" or

"Corona") pandemic indicate that patients with high vitamin D levels, less frequently suffer a serious course of the disease and also have to less frequently fear serious late-consequences of the infection.
