Benefits of CBD

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the compounds that is found in the cannabis plant. There a hundreds of different compounds found in the cannabis plant, but CBD is one of the compounds that does not affect the users in a psychedelic way. CBD oil is a non-intoxicating compound that has shown promise in treating and managing symptoms of a broad range of diseases. The compound has anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties.

There are some historic text that show that CBD was used in 2900 BC by the Chinese as a joint discomfort healer. While in 1000 BC, people in India used it as an overall health supporter. Although CBD seems to be a new health drug, it has been around for a long time and still has the same health benefits.

Health Benefits

CBD can help with a verity of health concerns from cancer to anxiety. When it comes to anxiety, studies show that 30% of adults in the U.S. and 25% of teenagers are affected by anxiety. Another on of the great benefits that comes from CBD is that it is an anti-anxiety compound and is effective in treating social anxiety, general anxiety, and panic attacks. CBD doesn’t have any of the side effects that pharmaceutical anti-anxiety medications have.

Along with helping relieve anxiety, CBD is also used to help with joint discomfort, inflammation, and pain management. It works to suppress certain processes and signals in the brain to provide relief. CBD eliminates many types of discomfort by interacting with receptors in our brain. By doing so users of CBD are able to find some form of solace.

How to use CBD

CBD comes in many different forms, but the most common is oil. The oil form of CBD is also the most potent and easiest way to intake it. Most CBD oil comes in a bottle with a dropper, this makes it easy to measure and ingest.

If you have low pain, recommended usage is 5-10 milligram dosage. If you have medium pain, recommended usage is 10-20 milligram dosage. If you have high pain, recommended usage is 20-110 milligram dosage. You can always start with a low dosage for 3-7 days and then go back and see if it's helping, then add more to the dosage as needed. It takes about 30-60 minutes for the CBD effects to kick in and for the pain to go away. The effects of the CBD should last about 4-6 hours, depending in the dosage and the person.

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!

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!

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.

Customer Testimonies:

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!

June H.

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.”

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

  • 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

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

Strengthen, Support & Build - with Cal-Mag!

Calcium is one of the most popular dietary supplements on the market, and for good reason. The body can’t absorb nutrients from conventional dairy. Homogenization and pasteurization zap the enzymes that help the body utilize vitamins and minerals, leaving nothing but empty calories. This unabsorbed calcium can cause build-up in arteries and actually cause the arteries themselves to stiffen and harden up. Excessive calcium can also cause kidney stones and affect the absorption of iron, magnesium and zinc.

These recent findings have caused most doctors to advise against calcium supplements, and in most cases, they’re right. Most companies use synthetic calcium that the body doesn’t recognize and cannot absorb. However, with the prevalence of osteoporosis and bone loss in America—to the point that by 2020 half of Americans over 50 years old will suffer from bone disorders—it’s clear we’re not eating enough calcium from plant-based or animal sources to meet our needs.

What’s more, we need more than just calcium for sufficient bone health.

The fourth most abundant mineral in the body, magnesium is required for bone density. Over 50% of the magnesium in the human body is found in the bones, and with over two-thirds of the American population deficient in this essential mineral, it’s no surprise bone loss has been on the rise.

Magnesium also:

  • Improves heart health
  • Regulates blood pressure
  • Helps balance blood sugar
  • Promotes a healthy gut
  • Relieves pain & inflammation

Vitamin D—fondly called the sunshine vitamin—is another requisite for a healthy skeletal system. It’s vital for calcium absorption, as well as many other processes in the body. Over half of Americans are deficient, which can lead to the development of several chronic health issues, including breast cancer, multiple sclerosis, type 1 diabetes, and more.

Vitamin D helps:

  • Boost metabolism
  • Increase health & longevity
  • Support immune function
  • Aid colon, breast & prostate health

Thankfully, NeoLife’s Cal-Mag provides all this and MORE in a balanced ratio of calcium to magnesium with vitamin D.

Ulandingpage_msing calcium derived from seashells, Cal-Mag:

  • Uses double chelation for the fastest available absorption of calcium, magnesium & minerals
  • Promotes healthyblood pressure
  • Relieves PMS symptoms
  • Supports optimal nerve & muscle function
  • Proven to postpone or prevent osteoporosis

The Key to Crohn's

crohns.jpeg

Crohn’s disease, which affects over 560,000 people in the United States, is traditionally managed with surgery or prescription medications. Recent findings may change that. A new study has found a correlation between fungal and bacterial populations in Crohn’s patients. Fungi Candida Tropicalis, Serratia marcescens, and the bacteria E. coli were found in abundance in the guts of Crohn’s sufferers, with a strong lack of good bacteria. Even with factors such as genetics and diet taken into account, the amounts of pathogens were found consistently high across the board.

Fortunately, lactobacillus acidophilus has been shown to slow the growth of Candida in the bowel, and these friendly organisms actually help to produce a type of natural antibiotic that will kill off Candida overgrowth.

 

NEOLIFE’S ACIDOPHILUS PLUS differs from other probiotics in that it:

  • provides 5 billion live bacteria – more than the probiotics in 10 servings of yogurt!
  • supplies an exclusive blend of 5 types of probiotics
  • uses gel-guard protection to ensure probiotic delivery through stomach acid to the small intestineacidophilus

Acidophilus has many benefits, including but not limited to:

  • higher b-vitamin absorption
  • long-term colon health
  • reduced risk of colon cancer
  • easier lactose digestion
  • strengthened immunitycrohns-disease-research.jpg
  • reduce food allergy symptoms
  • less “bad” bacteria
  • IBD and IBS relief

 

Garlic has demonstrated significant anti-fungal activity and is especially active against candida, both in invivo and invitro studies, so an evening dose of Garlic is prudent.  (This should be taken some hours after taking Acidophilus, as Garlic can inactivate friendly probiotics, too.)

NEOLIFE’S GARLIC ALLIUM COMPLEX:provitaminai-lt10

  • Utilizes targeted technology to ensure release in the intestines for optimal benefit
  • Contains the complete allium family—garlic, onions, leeks, chives, etc.
  • Provides rosemary to help protect tablets from being destroyed by stomach acid
  • The only garlic clinically proven to kill ALL 22 strains of Candida yeast
  • Each serving provides the antioxidant power of a whole clove of garlic
  • Garlic breath free!

Historical benefits of garlic include:

  • Heart health
  • Reduced cholesterol & blood pressure
  • Lower risk of cancer
  • Increased immune response
  • Normal cell growth
  • Improved thyroid health
  • Balanced blood sugar
  • Alzheimer & Dementia relief
  • Heavy metal detox

Silver Sol

SILVER SOLsilver Throughout history, silver has been used to purify water and fight colds and flu all across the world.

A recent technology of silver called Sol or Aquasol has been shown to be several times more effective than colloidal and ionic silver products. Its cellular formation is super-charged to spread throughout the body at an exponential rate to heal the body faster.

Below are historical uses for Silver and recommended dosages. Note: this is NOT a prescription.

For Lyme Disease, Pneumonia, Malaria, MRSA, Staph, AIDS, HIV, etc: Blast the infection away by taking an entire bottle of silver for four days. After this, reduce the amount to half a bottle (four tablespoons) for four days. Then reduce the amount to two tablespoons. Continue at this amount until the symptoms are gone.

Aches/Pains: Take one teaspoon of silver internally three times daily.

Athlete’s Foot: Spray Silver Sol liquid on socks or directly on foot. Apply Silver Sol gel between the toes.

Autism: (Note: Silver does not cure autism, but greatly improves symptoms. Children with Autism who take Silver have been shown to be less irritated or agitated, learn better, and ask more intellectual questions.) Children under seventy-five pounds can take one teaspoon morning and night. Children over seventy-five pounds should take two teaspoons twice daily.

Bad Breath: Swishing Silver around in the mouth for six minutes in the morning and the evening will eliminate odor-causing bacteria. For bad breath caused by sinus infections, spray Silver liquid in the nose four times a day.

White Flour vs. Whole Grains, and the Importance of Tre-En-En

whole-grain.jpeg

We hear a lot about whole grains these days. Some people say they're good for us; others tell us to avoid them at all costs. Here we'll take a closer look at both whole grains and white flour, and see what roles they play in our diets. Until the invention of steel rollers in 1839, grains were ground by hand at a slow speed and low temperature. With rollers, the process quickened and it became easier to separate out the different parts of wheat: the germ, endosperm, and bran, and hence came the emergence of white flour.

Since this and the processing of three other staples of health (sugar, fats, andtre-en-en2 dairy), there's been a highly-documented rise in degenerative health issues, including:

  • arthritis
  • allergies
  • asthma
  • cancer
  • depression
  • mental disorders
  • and heart disease.

Furthermore, the more we consume white flour, the greater the research grows against it. For one thing, white flour cannot support life.

This is why it's so popular among manufacturers. Insects will flourish in anything that supports life, but they won't touch white flour. There is no nourishment to be found in it. In fact, in a recent study, of a group of rats fed solely enriched white flour for 90 days, two-thirds died of malnutrition, and the remaining third was on the brink of death, growth severely stunted.

Even more interesting is the fact that during World War II, the wheat germ was added back into bread rationing in Britain to keep the people healthy. White flour was banned in almost all bakery products and replaced with "wheatmeal," a nearly whole wheat flour with the germ and bran added back in. Because of this decision, the British people were healthier than ever before, and the healthiest they've been ever since.

Once the war was over, the bran and germ were removed, and Britain's health declined again.

So, what's so great about whole grains?

Whole grains:

  • are high in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals
  • are rich with iron, magnesium, and fiber
  • reduce the risk of heart disease
  • assist diabetes management
  • lower the risk of stroke
  • fight/prevent cancer development
  • support weight management
  • boost energy metabolism
  • reduce cholesterol and blood pressure
  • and more!

While you'd think it'd be simple to add more whole grains to your diet, it isn't as easy as you think. Often, products marked as containing whole grains only contain half whole grains, half refined. And even those that DO contain mostly whole grains, don't possess the nutrients the body needs to stay healthy.

That's where Tre-en-en comes in. Literally meaning "three-in-one," Tre-en-en is the oily, waxy residue found when the Vitamin E is removed from wheat germ. High in proteins, vitamins, minerals, unsaturated fats, lecithin, lipids, and sterols, this collection of oils, fatty acids, and other nutrients is completely missing from our diets.

Only NeoLife has the patent for Tre-en-en as a supplement, and their research on grain lipids, sterols, and their effect on the human body is astounding.

After over sixty years of research on the subject, they found a direct link between grain lipids and sterols, and chronic fatigue.They also found that without the grain concentrates now lacking in our diet, cell membranes within the body cannot function properly to the point that nutrients can't get in, and waste can't get out.

Tre-en-en nourishes the body at the cellular level to energize, correct hormone imbalances, promote cardiovascular health, and boost cellular growth and activity. In addition, this powerful grain concentrate helps the body absorb other vitamins, minerals, and nutrients from food that are otherwise slipping through our bodies, unused.

As an added bonus, Tre-en-en is cholesterol, yeast, and gluten-free, making it safe for those with gluten intolerance.

Turmeric: An All Natural Pain Reliever and More!

turmeric.jpeg

Used for over 2,500 years, this root and spice has been safely used for centuries. A member of the same family as ginger, turmeric has become one of the most researched herbs of all time, and it's not hard to see why.turmeric Turmeric has a wide range of health benefits, and more are being discovered every day.

The benefits of turmeric include:

  • pain relief
  • reduced inflammation 
  • cancer-causing free radical protection
  • arthritis relief
  • moderated insulin levels
  • lowered cholesterol
  • a heightened immune system
  • accelerated wound healing
  • weight loss/management
  • improved digestion
  • Alzheimer's prevention
  • slowed cancer growth
  • liver detoxification
  • quickened fat metabolism
  • lessened depression
  • halted growth of blood vessels in tumors
  • psoriasis (and other skin condition) relief
  • lowers the risk of childhood leukemia
  • slows the progression of multiple sclerosis
  • high in antioxidants
  • soothed burns

Conveniently, turmeric can be taken in either a powder or capsule form. As a powder, it can be mixed in salads, dishes, or in drinks like milk. It's very versatile and gives off a lovely yellow hue.

If mixed with black pepper, turmeric's bioavailability (the extent to which a nutrient or medication can be used by the body - courtesy of dictionary.reference.com) goes up by an astounding 2000%! Together, these two spices can also reduce damage caused by peptic ulcers, while also improving memory and brain health. 

Whether taken by itself or with black pepper, turmeric is an amazing herb. The benefits multiply every day, and the testimonies with it. Below are the stories of a few of our customers and their  results with this remarkable spice.

Jimmy A: "I've been in martial arts since I was 3. Recently I broke my foot and ankle in a kick. I couldn’t walk for more than 30 minutes. My doctor told me to live with it. After 2 months of taking Salmon Oil, Cal-Mag, and Turmeric, I can swim, white water raft, rock climb, and do yoga."

Kim W: "My husband has psoriatic arthritis and went through three rounds of steroid shots that didn't work. He started taking glucosamine and turmeric, and the pain is gone! I had arthritis pain in my shoulder, neck, and arm, and couldn’t sleep. I tried turmeric, and in 4 or 5 days, I noticed a difference. Now I have more energy, less pain, and if I don’t take it, I hurt. Our entire family uses turmeric. We love it!"

Victoria V: "I am under a lot of stress and anxiety at work. I take turmeric and niacin, and now I can relax and sleep better. I rarely get headaches. I never use Tylenol or Ibuprofen anymore!"

The Cholesterol Scam

cheese.jpeg

Here are a few surprising facts about cholesterol:pills• Those with high cholesterol run the same risk of heart disease as people with low cholesterol. • The human body needs cholesterol to be healthy. • LDL and HDL are not types of cholesterol, but lipoproteins that transport cholesterol through the blood stream.

Here are some facts about statin drugs, the medications often prescribed for lowering cholesterol. • Statins are prescribed with the promise of offsetting the risk of heart disease. In reality, they’re HUGE moneymakers for the health industry. The top three most common are Lipitor, Crestor, and Zocor. Lipitor alone pulls in $8 billion a year. • One out of five people who take these drugs experiences their side effects. • The FDA has reported that statins raise blood pressure and cause memory loss. Yet they leave them on the market. • After a simple blood test reveals high cholesterol, millions of healthy people are put on statins to prevent heart attack or stroke—a practice called primary prevention—meaning there are millions taking a drug they don’t need. • Statins block the creation of enzyme COQ10, which is an antioxidant found and needed in every cell of the body.

What’s more, in a study, French women between 60 and 75 with cholesterol levels of 160 were 5 times more susceptible to heart disease versus women the same age with a cholesterol level of 260.

Here are some side effects of statin drugs: • muscle pain • fatigue • exercise intolerance (muscles too painful and weak to exercise) • memory loss • tingling, numbness or burning pain in limbs • irritability • sleep problems • sexual dysfunction • cancer • stroke • diabetes • autoimmune diseases • digestive problems • kidney disease • liver isssues • lung problems • weight gain
