Melatonin-- Nature's Sleep Aid?

sylvie-tittel-673971-unsplash.jpg

There is much discussion and debate about the benefits and effectiveness of using melatonin as a natural sleep aid.  With so many differing opinions, it can be hard to decipher the facts.  So, what is the truth about melatonin?

What is melatonin?

Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland, located in the center of the brain. [1] The production of melatonin is affected by the time of day and amount of light-- production decreases when its light and increases when its dark. [2] Melatonin does not induce sleep, but it prepares the body for sleep by decreasing motor activity, increasing fatigue, and slightly lowering body temperature. [1]

Why is melatonin used?

Melatonin is used in individuals who have sleeping disorders because it has a very low risk of dependency, the body will not become used to the hormone and become less sensitive, and there is no "hangover effect." Research has proven melatonin to be particularly useful in those with insomnia, shift work disorders caused by working at night and sleeping in the daytime, and individuals experiencing jet lag. [2]

Is melatonin beneficial for those without a diagnosed sleeping disorder?

There have been no conclusive research findings about the benefits or disadvantages of melatonin use in individuals without a diagnosed sleeping disorder. It is crucial to contact your health care provider before beginning any supplement.

What if I am taking melatonin?

If you are taking melatonin, it is important to create the right environment to reap the benefits of the hormone.  Blue and green lights from electronic devices hinder the production of melatonin, so stop device use two hours before bedtime.  Bright overhead lights can also have the same effect.  Try to create a relaxing and restful environment before bed to prepare your body for sleep. [3]

Who shouldn't take melatonin?

Individuals who are pregnant, breastfeeding, have an autoimmune disorder, a seizure disorder, or depression should not use melatonin.  Remember to talk with your health care provider before beginning any supplement. [3]

Where can I purchase melatonin?

https://www.naturessunshine.com/us/product/melatonin-extra-3-mg-60-caps/2830/

Nature's Sunshine® Melatonin Extra® is a supplement option that also contains other herbs and vitamins for maximum effect.  It is offered in 3-mg tablets which also contain vitamin E, ginko leaf and leaf extract, and eleuthero root for optimal benefits. [4]

Other natural sleeping tips

  • Keep a normal sleep routine- try to go to sleep and wake up at the same time each day
  • Get active- aerobic exercise has been shown to improve adult's sleep quality
  • Watch your diet- stop caffeine intake (including coffee, soft drinks, and chocolate) by mid-afternoon. Make dinner your lightest meal and try to avoid spicy or greasy foods, which can increase indigestion and make it harder to sleep
  • Avoid smoking- studies show that smokers have less restful nights than non-smokers
  • Avoid alcohol before bed- while alcohol may help you fall asleep, it disrupts your brain waves and decreases sleep quality
  • Put down your phone- technology use (from phones, television, computers, etc.) should stop at least one hour before bedtime because the light from these devices stimulates the brain and makes it harder to fall asleep
  • Keep it cool- studies say that individuals with a lower core body temperature sleep better and longer, so lower your thermostat before bedtime
  • Use your bed for sleep only- doing other activities, such as working, eating, or watching TV, creates an association between these activities and your bed, making it harder to relax and fall asleep [5]

The Importance of Strength Training

  Don't feel the need to look like this guy either. 

Don't feel the need to look like this guy either. 

We all want to be strong, look good, and feel good but strength training goes beyond that. While we don't have to look like the lady above, strength training is a good way to improve overall health, mentally and physically. You're probably asking "what is the point if not to look "incredible"?" Let me shed some light. To engage in strength training does not mean you have to be incredibly ripped, strong, one big mass of muscle, or even "in shape". The key is to start with where you are and push yourself to get to where you want to be. ( it may sound cliche but it's true) Don't try to exceed your limits to the point of hurting yourself but also go a bit beyond what you think you are capable of. In my experience strength training goes further than the gym, it extends into our everyday lives. There are times in training where you will think you are not capable and feel the effects of the confidence and accomplishment when you push through, overcome, and do what you thought you couldn't. Going forward you will find yourself being full of more confidence and believing that you can do more and are capable of doing hard or uncomfortable tasks. Strength training is good for you mentally because of those reasons, it takes you out of your comfort zone and pushes you to rely on your resolve and resilience. Many people see positive changes in their self esteem as a result. Now lets get to the physical benefits. Obviously strength training can make you look great if you put in the work and that is a great benefit but not the only one. Some other benefits are gaining strength, losing weight, forming good posture, strengthening your bones carrying out everyday tasks easier, and long term benefits that help your body and mind in old age.

The Big "C" Word

peach-2573836_1920.jpg

We all know someone who’s had to hear that big “C” word from their doctor. Cancer is a venomous disease that takes thousands of lives and affects millions of people. Everyone is looking and praying for a way to stop cancer. But what if one was discovered hundreds of years ago?

Laetrile, aka vitamin B-17, or amygdalin is a chemical compound commonly found in fruits and vegetables. Laetrile was found in numerous studies to have beneficial effects on lung, prostate, and cervical cancer.

Commonly found in peach and apricot pits, apple seeds and other berries as well as some nuts and vegetables, Laetrile is the most purified and concentrated form of amygdalin. Historically, Laetrile has been used to prevent and stop cancer since the 1800’s. However, a political cover up and subsequent faulty clinical trials have kept it from being approved by the FDA. [1]

The famous study that was “covered up” was performed by Dr. Kenematsu Sugiura at the Sloan-Kettering Institute for Cancer Research in 1974. Dr. Sugiura found that cancerous mice that were treated with amygdalin had a “definite deduction in development of mammary tumors – 70% in controls against 48% in amygdalin-treated mice. It also shows amygdalin had a strong inhibitory effect on the development of lung metastases in mice – 75 per cent inhibition against 22 per cent in controls.” [2] Dr. Sugiura concluded that “Amygdalin (Laetrile) should be legal and available” as Laetrile has the ability to “attack only cancer tissue. It is ‘poisonous’ only to cancer.” Dr. Sugiura is not the only doctor to find that Laetrile can almost miraculously stop cancer from growing.

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer for men. Researchers at the Kyung Hee University Medical Center in South Korea found in 2006 that “amygdalin induces apoptotic cell death in human DU145 and LNCaP prostate cancer cells by caspase-3 activation through down-regulation of Bcl-2 and up-regulation of Bax. The present study reveals that amygdalin may offer a valuable option for the treatment of prostate cancers.”[3] Even cervical cancer can be inhibited by Laetrile. Researchers in the Bethune College of Medicine in China during a 2013 study concluded that Laetrile is “a new therapeutic option for patients with cervical cancer.”[4]

Laetrile has been found to specifically target cancerous cells time and time again, and yet the FDA still refuses to credit these studies or create more clinical trials. Perhaps the cure for cancer has been sitting right underneath our noses.

Kiss Your Seasonal Allergies Goodbye

woman-698943_1920.jpg

Spring is here, the pollen count is set at "very high," and seasonal allergies are in full swing. Congestion, runny nose, itchy eyes, sneezing, scratchy throat--is any of this sounding familiar? The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America estimates that 1 in 5 Americans suffer from seasonal allergies. Symptoms typically manifest in the lungs, nose, and eyes, but other symptoms can include

  • decreased concentration and focus
  • decreased decision making
  • exhaustion, and sleep disorders
  • mood swings
  • irritability
  • low blood pressure
  • hives
  • eczema
  • ear infections

Tired of experiencing the same symptoms year after year? Looking for relief, without the negative side effects of Benadryl, Claritin, and other pharmaceutical antihistamines? Good news! A combination of natural remedies and NeoLife's Herbal Respiratory Formula can help you kick seasonal allergies to the curb.

Natural Remedies

1. Eat an anti-inflammatory, alkaline diet. Add garlic, lemons, green leafy vegetables, bone broth, almonds, and probiotic-rich foods to your diet.

2. Buy local, raw honey. A tablespoon a day helps your body build up a tolerance to pollen that is common in your area.

3. Apple Cider Vinegar. Mix in some lemon juice and water to dilute the vinegar taste, and use it to flush your sinuses during an allergy attack.

4. Quercetin. A natural bioflavonoid found in onions, green tea, citrus fruits, and cruciferous vegetables (like broccoli or cauliflower), quercetin stabilizes the release of histamines in your body. It takes a few weeks of use to kick in, so be sure to stock up on vegetables and fruits before winter ends.

5. Stinging nettle leaf can be steeped in a tea, and naturally controls your body's histamine release.

6. Eucalyptus and Frankincense essential oils. These oils reduce inflammation and flush your body of bacteria, parasites, microorganisms, and toxins that can trigger an allergy attack. Use them in your laundry detergent, your diffuser, or rub some on your chest for all day relief.

NeoLife's Herbal Respiratory Formula

In conjunction with these natural remedies, try NeoLife's Herbal Respiratory Formula. One pill contains a comprehensive formula of seven different herbs:

Does YOUR child have a nutritional deficiency?

ben-white-124388.jpg

Parents, you want the best for your children--that goes without saying. But despite your best, gold star efforts, your children can still develop nutritional deficiencies. Nutrients, such as vitamins and minerals, are essential for good health, especially in children who are still growing and developing. We get most of our nutrients from what we eat, but today’s foods are not as nutrient-rich as your children need them to be. Worried that your children may not be getting the nutrients they need? Here are 4 types of deficiencies, their symptoms, and how to incorporate them into your children’s diet. 1. Iron

This mineral is a main component of red blood cells, responsible for transporting oxygen around the body. 47% of preschool-aged children have an iron deficiency. A lack of iron weakens the immune system, and it can cause fatigue or weakness because the brain isn’t getting as much oxygen. Severe cases of iron deficiency can develop into anemia, with symptoms such as pale, easily bruised skin, poor appetite, and frequent infections.

How do you avoid, or rectify, an iron deficiency? Incorporate red meat, seafood, beans, and dark green vegetables like broccoli, kale, and spinach, into your children’s diet. If you believe your child is experiencing anemia, you can start them on an iron supplement to boost their levels right away.

2. Magnesium

Less than half of the United States population--children and adults alike--consume the amount of magnesium a body needs. The body uses magnesium in 300 different ways, including bone and teeth development, making it one of the most important minerals your growing children can have. A magnesium deficiency can cause growth pains or cramps, restlessness, anxiety, and muscle spasms like eye twitches.

Avoid this deficiency by stocking up on magnesium rich foods, such as oats and other whole grains, nuts, and--as a treat--dark chocolate.

3. Vitamin D

Millions of children have a Vitamin D deficiency, because it is not found in many foods, and symptoms of a deficiency are hard to spot. The benefits of Vitamin D are tenfold:

  • Promotes bone growth
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Regulates cell growth
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Helps prevent cancer, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes

The primary source of Vitamin D is sunlight. Children are more prone to deficiencies during the winter months, when it’s cloudy, and too cold to play outside. Though symptoms of a deficiency are not obvious, children who lack Vitamin D are at risk for Rickets, a skeletal disorder that affects bone growth and density.

To keep the Vitamin D coming, even during the winter months, incorporate cod liver oil into your children’s diet, as well as seafood like salmon and trout.

4. Vitamin B12

This vitamin is essential for blood, brain, and nerve formation. Your children cannot develop normally without it. However, the body is unable to produce it naturally, and must get it from outside sources. Symptoms of a Vitamin B12 deficiency are scary: they include developmental delays, seizures, and mental retardation. A lack of Vitamin B12 can be misdiagnosed as autism, or other developmental disorders.

How can you ensure your children aren’t at risk? Feed them plenty of shellfish, red meat, eggs, and milk products.

 

Even if your children are eating healthy, organic foods, they might not be getting the nutrients they need to grow. Stock up on nutrient rich foods as a preventative, and keep an eye out for symptoms of nutrient deficiencies. You want the best for your children--make sure they have the nutrients to grow up strong and healthy.

ESSENTIAL OILS: why you need them in your life.

essential-oils-2385087_1920.jpg

Essential oils are the new black in the naturopathic, home remedy world. Chances are, you've heard a friend raving about her new bottle of lavender, or you have a bottle of peppermint oil on your shelf from Bed Bath and Beyond that you bought because it smelled nice. But few people know what exactly essential oils are, where to find non-synthetic brands, or just how much power is packed into those little 15ml bottles. So what's the big deal?

Extracted from the bark, leaves, roots, stems, and fruit of a plant, essential oils are a highly concentrated substance that contain the "essence" of their plant--the smell, but also the healing and nutritional capabilities. There are hundreds of different essential oils, which can be overwhelming; so today we're going to focus on a few that everyone should have in their homes.

Peppermint

One of the best oils on the market, with dozens of uses and health benefits--peppermint oil is a must have. It gives a cooling sensation when applied, which is perfect for muscle pain, cramps, and joint stiffness. It can reduce muscle spasms, leading many doctors to recommend it for nausea, and digestive problems like bloating, indigestion, and IBS (irritable bowel syndrome).

Other uses? Peppermint unclogs sinuses and soothes sore throats, providing relief for colds, coughs, asthma, and bronchitis. It acts as a natural, chemical free bug repellent, treats acne, sunburn, and bug bites, freshens breath, stimulates hair growth, and relieves headaches.

Bonus: Colicky infant? Teething toddler? Peppermint has been proven to heal colic and sooth teething gums.

Frankincense

Yes--the wise men's gift to Jesus is also an essential oil! It is commonly used in aromatherapy to reduce stress and anxiety, counteract insomnia, and decrease painful inflammation. But it can also boost your immune system, and even help prevent and/or treat cancer.

Bonus: take advantage of its antiseptic and disinfectant powers--use it as a household cleaner.

Lavender

Hands down the most used essential oil in the world, the benefits of Lavender were first discovered over 2,500 years ago. Ancient Egyptians used it in their mummification rituals.

Today, Lavender is a versatile oil. It reduces anxiety, improves brain function, and promotes deeper sleep in adults and children. It also has powerful skin benefits; it heals burns and wounds, restores skin complexion, reduces acne, and slows signs of aging.

Lavender can also be used to protect your body from symptoms of diabetes, and soothes symptoms of cancer and chemotherapy. It is used to treat migraines as well.

Bonus: it smells amazing. Dab a little bit on your neck and wrists as a natural, sweet-smelling perfume.

Eucalyptus

The benefits of Eucalyptus oil were first researched by Australian physicians. Today, people all over the world are using it for cold and flu relief, sinus and allergy treatment, and respiratory issues.

It also has many around-the-house benefits: use it as an odor remover, an air cleanser, a spot remover, and a natural soap. It is great for killing mold in your home.

Bonus: it is 100% safe to use on pets!

Clary Sage

Considered one of the top essential oils for hormones, Clary Sage is most commonly used to relieve symptoms of menopause or heavy menstrual cycles. It relieves cramps, staves off hot flashes, and corrects hormonal imbalances.

It can also be used to reduce cholesterol, increase circulation, and kill bacteria and infections. Preliminary studies have shown that it kills Leukemia cancer cells.

Bonus: need a confidence boost? Clary Sage alleviates anxiety, and leaves you feeling joyful and relaxed.

Cinnamon

Highly concentrated and packed with antioxidants, Cinnamon is great for your heart. It stabilizes blood sugar, boosts circulation, combats cardiovascular disease, and heals damage from heart attacks or strokes.

Other uses? Cinnamon reduces ulcers and promotes digestion health, burns fat, relieves depression, and kills parasites your body gets from undercooked meat, unclean vegetables, or traveling overseas.

Bonus: it has been shown to act as a natural aphrodisiac.

 

The most important thing to remember when in the market for essential oils? Check their quality! There is no third-party governing body that regulates essential oils, so companies that give their oils a "grade" or have "certified" on the bottle are not referring to external standards. Many companies sell adjusted, altered, or even synthetic oils. How can you avoid this?

Buy Nature's Sunshine! They back every bottle of our oils with our SureSource Guarantee, and have spend decades building trusted partnerships with their customers and suppliers. For each essential oil, they can provide several documents--signed by botanists, third party experts, and lab technicians at each phase of the product's life cycle--that certify pure, natural authenticity.

Stock up on our essential oils, knowing they're full of pure, concentrated plants, and have fun finding your favorites!

The Elimination Diet

theeliminationdiet_fruits-850x478.jpg

Do you think you might have a food allergy or sensitivity, but you aren't sure which foods to blame? Are you experiencing skin flare-ups, digestive issues, moodiness, or brain fog after meals? An elimination diet might be just what you need. Elimination diets are "short term eating plans that eliminate certain foods that may be causing allergies and other digestive reactions--then reintroduce the foods one at a time in order to determine which foods are, and are not, well-tolerated." It's estimated that over 15 million adults in the U.S alone suffer from food allergies and sensitivities. An elimination diet can help you pinpoint what is causing yours, and guide you in taking steps to heal your digestive system.

Which foods are removed during an elimination diet?

Eight foods account for almost all food reactions: milk, eggs, peanuts, nuts, wheat/gluten, soy, fish, and shellfish. Though elimination diets can vary in terms of exactly what foods are excluded, most will cut out:

  • gluten
  • dairy
  • soy
  • refined/added sugar
  • peanuts
  • corn
  • alcohol
  • eggs
  • all packaged, processed, and fast foods

How long does an elimination diet usually last?

Most diets last about 3-6 weeks. Antibodies--the proteins your immune system makes when it reacts to food--take about three weeks to dissipate. This is the minimum time needed for someone to fully heal from sensitivities, and notice improvements.

What are the benefits of an elimination diet?

There are so many benefits to doing an elimination diet. Here are just a few:

  • uncovers unknown food allergies
  • helps reduce digestive syndromes such as IBS and Leaky Gut
  • relieves skin irritations like eczema and acne
  • can help treat disorders such as ADHD, ADD, Autism, anxiety, and depression
  • calms inflammation, boosts your body's energy, and strengthens your immune system
  • increases awareness of the foods you eat, and which ones work best for your body

Elimination diets are not for losing weight, so don't think of them as quick ways to drop pounds. The goal is to heal your body.

This diet shouldn't last for more than 6 weeks--stay on it just long enough to pinpoint foods that aren't working for you. Continuing to follow such a strict diet for longer than 6 weeks can begin to deprive your body of the nutrients it needs to keep functioning at 100 percent.

Not sure how it's possible to cut so many foods out of your diet for 3-6 weeks, without running out of meals to make? There are tons of good websites that have elimination diet recipes, tips, and advice available to you for free. Or, you can stop by Nature's Finest Nutrition--we're always happy to help!

Magnesium Complex: what it can do for you!

1859.jpg

An estimated 80% of adults today are magnesium deficient. This is a condition referred to as hypomagnesemia, and it often causes symptoms such as muscle aches or spasms, poor digestion, anxiety, and trouble sleeping. More serious symptoms include:

  • hypertension and cardiovascular disease
  • kidney and liver damage
  • migraine headaches
  • restless leg syndrome
  • worsened PMS symptoms
  • behavioral disorders and mood swings
  • osteoporosis
  • recurrent bacterial or fungal infections
  • tooth cavities
  • eclampsia
  • muscle weakness

Magnesium is involved in over 300 biochemical functions in the body--making it one of the most important minerals our bodies need. Unfortunately, few people are tested for hypomagnesemia, and many people don't realize they are deficient.

What makes magnesium deficiency so common? There are a few factors at play. Soil depletion lowers the amount of magnesium in the crops we eat. Digestive disorders, high rates of prescription medication, and antibiotic use damage the body's ability to absorb magnesium. We naturally lose magnesium every day from normal activities, but if those stores are not replenished, then our bodies can become deficient.

Here at Nature's Finest, our solution is the Magnesium Complex supplements from Nature's Sunshine. Jim recommends starting with 2 capsules a day, and working up to a dose that best meets your body's needs. Give us a call, or drop by the store to pick up a bottle today!

Michelle C. “For 25 years I’ve suffered with anemia. My doctors wanted to give me iron shots, but I knew there had to be a better way to get the iron I needed. I came to Jim and he told me to drink Liquid Chlorophyll. In 4 weeks the iron level in my blood test went from 9 to 13!! I don’t suffer from anemia anymore! I feel less tired, and more energetic!”

Wanda H. "For a long time I've lived with a very poor appetite, and stomach pain. When I came to Nature’s Finest, I sampled some Liquid Chlorophyll. On the way home, just 10 or 15 minutes later, my appetite returned, my stomach did not hurt, and I was able to eat a very good amount for lunch. My stomach felt soothed, relaxed, and nourished! I returned immediately to Nature’s Finest to buy my own quart of Chlorophyll."

HistaBlock: The Herbal Antihistamine

histamines.jpg

Caused by an immune response to pollen, dust mites, molds, foods, or other substances, allergies spark an inflammatory response in the body. Histamines are produced to attack the invading allergens, which then manifests itself as dry or watery eyes, itchy nose, nasal or lung congestion, runny nose, scratchy throat, or even hives. Prescription or over the counter anti-histamine medications can help relieve some of these symptoms, but they often come with a host of other side effects.

BENADRYL Lack of coordination Tremors Blurred or double vision

ALLEGRA Changes in menstrual cycle Vomiting Ear infections

CLARITIN Abdominal pain Nose bleeds Exhaustion

The Real Story About Soy

soy.jpg

Over the years, soy has developed a bad reputation. Fear of hormone disruption, poor mineral absorption, digestive issues, and other woes has grown so widely that people fear ingesting soy in any form. However, soy continues to be a staple in the diets of some of the healthiest communities in the world. Here, we will attempt to discover the truth. Is soy good or bad?

Firstly, it is important to recognize there are two different kinds of soy: fermented, and unfermented.

UNFERMENTED SOY:tofu

  • Includes tofu, soy milk, and fake meat products
  • Contains phytic acid, which blocks absorption of key vitamins and minerals
  • Provides anti-nutrients, plant compounds that can act like toxins in the body
  • Can promote blood-clotting, due to a substance called hemagglutinin
  • Blocks thyroid function, due to goitrogens
  • Likely GMO – 93% of soy in America is genetically modified

FERMENTED SOY:

soy sauce

  • Includes tempeh, natto, miso soup, tamari, and soy sauce
  • Improves bone healthy by boosting calcium & magnesium aborption
  • Easier to digest
  • Contains probiotics for gut health
  • Boosts immune function
  • Rich in vitamin K2, necessary for circulatory health and for calcium absorption
  • Balances cholesterol levels

Most studies that show detrimental effects of soy are using unfermented, GMO, conventionally-grown soy. These studies are also often done using rats, and humans differ anatomically from rats. More importantly, rats and humans utilize soy in different ways. For instance, soy isoflavones have been found to inhibit the synthesis of thyroid hormones in rodents, but studies have not found the same effect in humans.

As for the claim that soy can alter estrogen levels in the body, this is a misconception. The phytoestrogens found in soy are not the same as estrogen. Only animals or people can make estrogens. Plants cannot. Plants do contain phytoestrogens.

These are so named because they are similar in structure to mammalian estrogens, but they do not affect the body in the same way, i.e. interrupting menstrual cycles, or giving men feminine qualities unless eaten to excess. This takes 12 servings a day!

Regular consumption of organic, fermented soy has been found to:

  • Slash the risk of prostate cancer by HALF
  • Reduce the risk of heart attacks
  • Reduce breast cancer by 40 percent in pre- and post-menopausal women
  • Lower the rate of ovarian cancer
  • Reduce overall rates of chronic diseases
  • Boost brain function

The Original Multi-Vitamin

liver-plus-c-new1.jpg

Benefits of Liver

Although uncommon in America, liver has historically been consumed for thousands of years throughout the world.  In many cultures, it is considered a delicacy. The French foie gras and pâté, Scottish haggis, and German liverwurst are just a few examples of liver’s global popularity.

Steeped in civilizations with a tendency to let no part of the animal go to waste, liver and other organ meats fell out of favor as food processing grew more prevalent. Muscle meats quickly gained more popularity and were highly shelf-stable, as opposed to delicate, fast-spoiling liver.

Nevertheless, liver—be it from beef, fish, pig, or chicken—is rich in many vitamins, minerals, and nutrients, typically ten times the amount found in muscle meats. Gram per gram, liver contains the highest amount of nutrients of any known food. It contains these nutrients in their easiest available forms, allowing the body to work less to remain healthy.

Vitamins and nutrients in liver include:pregnancy-massage

  • 65% of the daily value of folate – the organic form of folic acid, important for fetal growth in pregnancy, red blood cell production, and brain health.
  • B12. Liver is the most concentrated natural source. B12 and folate work together to grow the myelin sheath – the protective covering around nerves that “takes the hit from stress.”
  • Vitamin A in the highest absorbable/bioavailable form, retinol. Necessary for eye, skin, bone, and tissue health, retinol is easier for the body to utilize than plant sourced beta-carotene.
  • Vitamin D3, the sunshine vitamin. Since most people have difficulty soaking enough D from the sun, supplementation is often necessary. Liver is one of the purest whole food sources.
  • Vitamin E. Another fat-soluble vitamin, E boosts immune function, helps repair damaged cells, as well as balance hormones and cholesterol levels.
  • Vitamin K1. This lesser known vitamin is critical for building and maintaining bones, protecting cardiovascular function, reducing bleeding (especially in regards to hemorrhaging, internal bleeding, and heavy menstrual cycles), and insulin regulation.
  • Choline, a chemical rather than a vitamin or mineral, that has a structure similar to that of B vitamins. It is has been found to prevent fat buildup in the liver, aid childhood and infant development, reduce memory loss, and possibly lower cholesterol and homocysteine levels, as well.

Liver also contains a wide array of trace minerals, including:

  • Magnesium
  • Potassium
  • Copper
  • Phosphorous
  • Calcium
  • Zinc
  • Selenium

What about toxins?

Due to its ability to filter and neutralize toxins in the body, most people hesitate to consume liver in fear of absorbing toxins from animals. There’s no reason to fear.

Liver does not store toxins. The toxins that pass through it are stowed away in fatty or nervous tissue. What does stay in the liver are vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, in great heaping portions.

NeoLife’s Liver Plus C

Originally developed for Olympic athletes, NeoLife’s Liver Plus C has profound benefits for athletes, or anyone looking to boost their energy levels.

  • Contains heme iron, the more absorbable form found in animal-based products
  • Supplies vitamin C, which helps boost iron absorption
  • Supports improved physical endurance
  • Supplies “anti-fatigue” nutrients
  • Specially coated to lock in flavor and nutrients, and to eliminate odor
  • Derived from 100% South American beef liver
  • Free of hormones, pesticide residues, and antibiotics
  • Defatted to remove cholesterol and eliminate rancidity

Put to the test:

In a 12 week study of rats, three groups were divided and given supplements. The goal was to mark any differences in stamina and endurance between the rats during a swimming test.

Group 1 was given a simple balanced diet.

Group 2 was given an identical diet, but with added B vitamins.

Group 3 ate the same diet supplemented with liver.

At the end of the study, the rats were tested to see how long they could swim. Both Groups 1 and 2 swam, on average, 13 minutes.

The liver supplemented Group 3 swam an average of over 2 hours. Only three rats swam for shorter time periods: 62, 83, and 87 minutes, a minimum of 49 minutes longer than the other groups!

The scientists conducting the study felt that a minimum of 24 days was necessary for liver supplementation to manifest its full effects.  The cause for liver’s unique effects on physical performance are still unknown, but its benefits are radically clear.

Kim P.Kim Peppers

I added the Liver Plus C (LPC) about a month ago. I had been running three miles max. When I added the LPC I bumped it up to five miles and ran my first half marathon in two hours and 39 minutes. I attribute the LPC with my energy level and endurance. My youngest daughter said, "Mom, you are so hyper! I want to take what you are taking." I'll will be 55 years old on Sunday and I have never felt better! Fuel matters!

My son battles with acne.  He started with two Formula IV and two Liver Plus C a day.  Since starting on the program he has no acne.  He stopped his program and it came back, so now he remembers to take the products more regularly.

Mary D.

The husband of one of my friends was eating very poorly and struggling with energy.  He wouldn’t drink NeoLifeShakes or eat their Bars, so we put him on 6 Liver Plus C a day.  After only 3 months, his energy levels increased dramatically.  His wife told me that he has so much more energy, and he’s even eating better.  They live across the street from me, and rarely did I see him outside his house, but in the last few weeks I have seen him working in his yard, sometimes late into the night!

Barbara S.

Two years ago, I started taking 4 Liver Plus C every day for physical stamina.  Later, to my surprise, I was able to recall hymns when they were first announced in church.  This was a first for me!  Second hymn same thing! It is wonderful to get a voicemail message right the first time, including the number.  I’ve tried other supplements for brain health, but Liver Plus C has made the most mental change.  Other friends are also thrilled.  One said, “I got my mind back.”

Live Long & Live Well with Tre!

Science has slandingpage_lhown that a special group of nutrients called polyphenols, typically found in superfoods, plays a wide range of critical roles in supporting and maintaining optimal health, longevity, and cognitive capacity throughout life.  Research shows that when polyphenols are absent or deficient in our diets, aging processes are accelerated and disease risk is higher. Conversely, when they are abundant in the diet, aging is slowed and disease risk is lowered. Tré contains those special groups of nutrients that will help you live long and live well.

 What are the nutritional values of Tré?

  • 6 times the alpha-lipoic acid of fresh spinach

Why You Need B Complex - NOT B12

Are you looking to take B12 for an energy boost? Do you want to strengthen your hair, skin, and nails with biotin? While it might seem easy to take a single B vitamin, it’s wiser to supplement with the whole B complex. If one B vitamin is deficient, it’s likely others are out of balance, too.

Besides, supplementation of any one B vitamin to the exclusion of the others can cause deficiencies.  For instance, supplementation of Thiamine by itself causes a severe drop in B6 levels.

B1 – Thiamine

  • boosts metabolism
  • supports immune health
  • enhances learning
  • improves mood

B2 – Riboflavin

  • eases migraines
  • strengthens eyes
  • reduces anemia
  • fights cancer

B3 – Niacin

  • relieves stress and anxiety
  • increases circulation
  • lowers cholesterol
  • nourishes nerves and brain

B5 – Pantothenic Acid

  • Increases energy metabolism
  • reduces stress
  • supports wound healing
  • fights acne

B6 – Pyroxidine

  • aids brain function
  • reduces rheumatoid arthritis
  • relieves morning sickness and PMS
  • protects eye health 

B7 – Biotin

  • strengthens hair, skin and nails
  • balances blood sugar
  • promotes heart health
  • nourishes thyroid and adrenal glands

B9 – Folate

  • aids fetal development
  • eliminates excess homocysteine
  • boosts mood
  • regulates red blood cell production

B12 – Methylcobalamin

  • boosts energy
  • helps prevent memory loss
  • aids digestion
  • strengthens hair, skin and nails

Omega-3 Liquid

oil-315528.jpg

landingpage_lRecent studies on omega-3 fatty acids have shown that not only are there the fatty acids DHA and EPA, but also a whole family of omega-3s, a family of 8. Each fatty acid has a unique biochemistry and role in the body, although the fatty acids work synergistically together.

Why do we need Omega-3s?

  • To support the optimal function of body tissues and organs: notably the heart, blood vessels, brain, nerves, eyes, skin and joints
  • Naturally present in mothers' milk, they are crucial to the development of infant brain and eyes.
  • They may slow aging of the brain. Older adults who supplement their diets with EPA and DHA have demonstrated greater cognitive function when compared to those who don’t
  • Omega-3 fatty acids may prevent asthmatic mothers from passing it on to their offspring

The USDA suggests all adults eat 2-3 servings of fish each week for optimal health. Unfortunately, most adults eat very little fish on a consistent basis and rarely meet this important nutritional need.

In a recent analysis of data from 2,500 children ages 1-5 years in the United States, 46% of children did not eat fish even once in the last 30 days.

People who do not consume enough fish can get the omega-3 fatty acids they need for optimal health from fish oil supplements
