I know CBD products are all the rage right now – and of course they are, as they’re a fabulous all-rounder supplement.  What’s not to love about a natural product with no bad side effects (most of the CBD’s doing the rounds are THC-free), that helps with a long list of different problems?  One such brand is Biomedcan – a brand with a variety of all-natural supplements and CBD-infused chocolates (!) that is not just effective, but BEAUTIFUL!

I know this sounds ridiculous, but I love aesthetically pleasing products, and even though this a health supplement, I get such a kick out of the beautiful Biomedcan bottles and their bright teal packaging.  And the chocolate is just as gorgeous: –

About the Brand

Biomedcan provide quality CBD supplements that are THC-free (THC is the psychoactive compound that gives you the feeling of being ‘high’, so you won’t experience that at all with Biomedcan).  They’re also gluten free, suitable for vegans and have no additives.

Biomedcan CBD Products

Biomedcan has a regular CBD Oil supplement, with just the CBD in capsules, a selection of supplements that contain CBD and other natural ingredients for different issues, and their infamous CBD chocolate.

The chocolates are actually a collaboration with Von Geusau chocolate, an artisanal Belgian chocolate company based in Greyton (I would KILL to sample some of their other goodies, but have no idea where I can get my hands on some, with me being in KZN).  You can choose from Dark Chocolate and Milk Chocolate, and both are utterly scrumptious.

Each 100g slab is infused with 20g of CBD (20g being the most you should take each day), so you shouldn’t eat more than one slab to yourself – but you WILL WANT TO!  They taste exceptional, some of the finest quality chocolate I’ve ever eaten.  I did worry with the CBD oil being included that they might have a slightly odd after taste to them, or an oily quality – but no!  All you’re tasting is some of the most incredible chocolate, with added benefits.

The benefits (due to the CBD extract) from the chocolate slabs are the following:

♥ Immune system boost

♥ Improved sleep

♥ Improved memory/focus/brain clarity

♥ Decrease in anxiety, stress, depression and mood swings

♥ Lowers high blood pressure

♥ Regulated heart rhythm

♥ General wellbeing

♥ Cellular anti-ageing properties

The slabs landed on my desk the day my PMS was in full swing.  I didn’t waste any time – I probably should have waited for photos, but my need for chocolate was just too strong.  I’m pleased to announce that not only did a third of the slab ease my sugar cravings, but it also definitely improved my mood and made me feel better all round.  I can HIGHLY recommend these as a PMS splurge!

I was also sent the full range of mixed supplements, the 4 bottles with CBD extract, as well as other ingredients that help with each of the 4 issues you’d like to address.  I have reviewed 3 of them, but I did give my Mom one of them to try out and provide feedback on.   This range works on an ‘entourage’ effect to give an extra boost to all the ingredients involved.

Biomedcan Mood

This was the supplement I was most interested in.  On top of the CBD extract, it contains: –

Bacopa Monnieri (good for anxiety, improved memory and ADHD, and is also commonly used for Alzheimer’s disease, and helps your dopamine and serotonin levels)

5-HTP (your body converts this to serotonin, so it’s an incredible natural alternative to prescription anti-depressant or anti-anxiety meds)

L-Theanine (promotes relaxation, boosts GABA, dopamine and serotonin levels)

Sceletium (enhances mood and increases relaxation)

Passion Flower (helps with anxiety and sleep problems)

Biomedcan Mood claims to: –

♥ Improve your mood

♥ Decrease stress, anxiety, depression and mood swings

♥ Regulate heart rhythm

♥ Lower blood pressure

I suffer with anxiety and have suffered from depression in the past.  My anxiety ebbs and flows, and I never really know when it’ll rear it’s head.  With the current climate of stress and worry with the covid19 pandemic, I think it goes without saying that anyone who has a problem with poor mental health is suffering more than ever before.  My anxiety has been at an all time high and I’ve had a few panic attacks.  I’ve also been feeling very low and flat and blue.  I’ve had this kind of dark cloud on my back, and during May especially I really battled.  All I wanted to do was stay in bed with my dogs and watch TV all day.  I was not in a good place.

Since taking (and now finishing) the Biomedcan Mood supplement, I noticed a big difference.  It wasn’t instantaneous, nor was it super fast.  In fact, I didn’t even notice a specific moment when I felt better.  After about 2 weeks I started feeling more motivated, and gradually I started getting better and better.  One Friday I mentioned to my friends that it almost felt like a cloud had lifted on my mind.  The fogginess and tense feeling lifted and I was feeling SO much better.  I felt myself again.  It was only the following week that it clicked that it must be the CBD supplement.

I cannot recommend this enough.  I’ve previously taken a 5-HTP supplement on it’s own, and while it was effective, I think that this was a much more well-rounded natural supplement for anxiety and depression.

Biomedcan Sleep

Another of the products I was looking forward to trying is the Sleep supplement.  I used to be a TERRIBLE insomniac, and it has gotten better over time.  However every so often I get a series of nights where I sleep, but wake up exhausted.  I like taking something natural that will just help me get good quality sleep.  I often turn to melatonin for this, but I was interested to see how a combination of different natural ingredients would compare.  Other than the CBD extract, this contains: –

Ashwagandha (an adaptogen that can help lower cortisol levels, manage stress and improve quality of sleep)

Hop (assists with insomnia, anxiety and other sleep disorders, can increase sleep time)

Magnesium Citrate (relaxes you and may help improve sleep)

Valerian Root (helps with insomnia and anxiety)

Sceletium (enhances mood and increases relaxation)

Biomedcan Sleep claims to assist with an improved faster and deeper natural sleeping pattern.  I can 100% agree with this.  I tried to think of how to explain it, but it works even more naturally than just taking melatonin at night.  I did need to take it at least an hour and a half before bed, as I found it took quite a while to kick in, but I think this is more that you just fall asleep as if it were happening without an assistance.

I didn’t feel like I was dopey, the way I do when taking prescription sleeping pills, and when I woke up the next day I was refreshed, with no grogginess at all.

Biomedcan Pleasure

These supplements are designed for use by both men and women.  They can increase libido, blood flow, improve arousal and stimulation, promote sperm motility count and semen quality, longer lasting erections and easier to reach orgasms.  It can also help with mood and can enhance the overall sexual experience for both men and women.

Other than CBD Extract, this supplement contains: –

Horny Goat Weed (improves low libido, increases blood flow, improves sexual function)
Panax Ginseng (known aphrodisiac, enhances sexual behavior, improves sperm count and quality)
Gingko baloba (Improves circulation and sexual function)
Schisandra Berry (an adaptogen that increases resistance to disease and stress, increases energy, physical performance and endurance)
Maca Extract (amazing superfood, an adaptogen that reduces fatigue, increases stamina, improves sex drive, balances hormone levels, improves fertility)
Tribulus Terrestris – (enhances libido, increases testosterone)
Bangalala (enhances male potency, aphrodisiac)
Vitamin B12 (keeps nerve and blood cells healthy)

I’ve been through a hellish ordeal with on and off treatments for my endometriosis.  All this yo-yoing of my hormones has left my libido a bit flat, and with my anxiety levels high this is just worsened.  I have previously found success with this by taking a Maca extract I bought on Faithful To Nature (I mentioned it HERE), but I was curious to see what a combination of different ingredients could do.  I definitely found the supplement to work well for me on this front, and I would happily repurchase and recommend it.

A lot of the ingredients claim to help with erectile problems (obviously I cannot stand as testament to this, not being male), and I imagine it would be worth a try for couples trying to conceive, as it could help with sexual function and sperm count and quality.  Always worth a try to go the natural route before you go for more intense (and expensive) treatments.

Biomedcan Mind

This is the supplement I gave to my mom to try.  it claims to: –

♥ Improve memory

♥ Improve focus

♥ Improve brain clarity

♥ Anti-ageing properties for the brain

♥ Neuro-protectant

Biomedcan Mind contains the following ingredients, on top of the CBD extract: –

Alpha GPC (can be used as treatment for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, improves memory and thinking skills)

Phosphatidylserine (improves thinking skills, treats ADHD and Alzheimer’s, prevents age related mental function decline, helps with depression)

Forskolin (many uses, such improving high blood pressure, insomnia and glaucoma)

Gingko Baloba (Improves circulation and sexual function)

L-Theanine (promotes relaxation, boosts GABA, dopamine and serotonin levels)

Rhodiola rosea (an adaptogen, promotes good health, physical and mental performance, strength and endurance)

Panax Ginseng (anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory, enhances brain function, fights fatigue)

Vitamin B6 (improves brain function and health, improves mood and reduces risk of Alzheimer’s)

My mom has been battling for quite some time with bad brain clarity and poor memory.  I thought it would be best for her to put this to the test, as it may be more beneficial for her.

She says she didn’t find a dramatic improvement in memory or focus, but I figure it may take a couple of month’s worth of the supplement to show a big difference in these.  However, she found a really great improvement in her brain clarity!  It would be a good supplement for her to stay on too, with it’s anti-ageing properties for the brain.  She has just repurchased her second month’s worth of product and plans to try it out for a full 3 months – I’ll update you guys if she sees any bigger improvements!

Overall

I am so impressed by how much work Biomedcan has put into these products – so much research and thought has gone into making them the best possible quality they can be.  I highly recommend the brand, and especially the Mood supplement, as overall it was the one that impressed me the most.

All of these supplements retail for R549 for 60 capsules (one month’s supply, but with the Sleep/Pleasure it can last longer, perhaps up to 2 months or more depending on how often you’re taking them).  Currently, if you purchase 2 bottles of this range you’ll also receive a bottle of their CBD Oil Capsules free!
