Don Martin - Love the run down on the development of Seagate. Richard you also do a great job of story telling. When I’m doing it people call it BSing.

I can see how habit forming taking pics of sea life could be especially when that is such a part of your life. Great pics!

More later in a email about Olive Leaf and Anaconda’s.

Pam - What about your Olive Leaf Extract. I have been taking them
from your company for years.
Does this help the heart also? Or does it have to be Olive Oil?

Richard (Founder) - Hi Pam-
Only the olive oil – the FDA permits us to use the following “qualified health claim” for our Olive Oil, not the Olive Leaf Extract:

“Limited and not conclusive scientific evidence suggests that eating about 2 tablespoons (23 grams) of olive oil daily may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease due to the monounsaturated fat in olive oil. To achieve this possible benefit, olive oil is to replace a similar amount of saturated fat and not increase the total number of calories you eat in a day. One serving of this product contains [x] grams of olive oil.”

The reason is that the olive oil contains the monounsaturated fat- Oleic acid.
Thank you

Off-label drug use – Pharmaceuticals vs. Homeopathic Drugs

“Off-label use” can apply to both prescription and over-the-counter (non-prescription) drugs.  This occurs when a drug, generally a prescription drug, is used in ways not specified on the label: for an unapproved use (indication); or an unapproved dosage; or an unapproved age group; or even an unapproved method of application. Even though this can be […]

Joan Carter - I believe it is the Seagate Olive Leaf Cut and Wound remedy.

Richard (Founder) - Seagate replies —
Joan was answering a question from a contest that we just placed on the Seagate Facebook page. In order to win a free T-shirt and a free bottle of Cut & Wound Remedy, it was necessary to click on a specific blog link Boiling Bug bites to reduce the histamines and itching and actually read it … and find the answer to the question — “Which of Seagate’s products is suggested as an alternative remedy to help alleviate itching from bug bites?”.

Unfortunately for Joan, Cut & Wound Remedy was never mentioned in the blog as a remedy for itching bug bites. One Seagate product was mentioned. But you have to read the blog to find the answer.
This contest was really a test of the Facebook audience to see if anyone was actually clicking through and reading the articles. Yes, there are a few.
Thank you
