Two New Products from Nature's Sunshine

Nature's Sunshine is great to add to their already comprehensive product line. Not only do we get cutting-edge scientifically-proven products, but we get a 100% guarantee of purity and potency. Here's the most recent product announcements:

Krill Oil with Vitamin K2 - Krill are tiny crustaceans that represent a vast source of essential omega-3 fatty acids, including EPA and DHA. Omega 3's support cardiovascular and brain health, provide joint and skin support. Krill is a natural source of astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant carotenoid. Vitamin K2 is added to provide added support for the cardiovascular system and bone health. More Info.

Co-Q10 - 50 mg. - Nature's Sunshine uses a patented lipid blend to keep Co-Q10 (50 mg.) from crystallizing, and it yields maximum bioavailability. A double-blind human clinical trial showed that NSP Co-Q10 50 mg was at least eight times more readily absorbed by the body than competing (crystalline) products. More Info.

Milk Allergy

Frank A. Oski, M.D., Chief of Pediatrics at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine:

"At least 50% of all children in the United States are allergic to cow's milk, many undiagnosed." Dr. Oski has written the book, "Don't Drink Your Milk - New Frightening Medical Facts About the World's Most Overrated Nutrient."

Julian Whitaker, MD, founder and editor of the largest read health newsletter in the world, Health & Healing, writes regarding the myth that milk helps build strong bones:

"American parents pass this myth on to their children, and misguided nutritionists reinforce it. Actually, milk and other dairy products weaken the bones and accelerate osteoporosis. That's right, consumption of milk causes the very condition it's advertised to prevent."   Read the rest of Whitaker's article.

What's the Alternative?

There are many options for cow's milk replacement. Soy is the best known but there are rice and oat milks. There are nut milks such as almond milk. Soy is known for its many benefits in the world of health and our favorite cow's milk substitute is Tofu Moo.  It's a fat-free vegan alternative.

Tofu Moo is a soy product but since it is made from tofu instead of just soybeans, it is easier on the digestive system so nutrients are more readily assimilated. It contains no lactose or any milk by-product. It is white (most soy milks are beige in color), delicious, and a good source of calcium. One 8-oz. serving provides 50% of daily requirements.  More info on Tofu Moo.

Nuts No Longer a No-No

High in fat and calories, nuts were a dieting no-no during the low-fat era. Now these nutrient-packed powerhouses are making a comeback as a top heart-healthy snack.

And what's not to love? They taste delicious, are naturally low in sodium, contain no trans fats or cholesterol, and are a good source of fiber and protein -- the perfect combo for a hunger-quenching nibble. A low-sugar content also makes them a healthy choice for diabetics, who are at greater risk for developing heart disease.

Nuts are rich in good fats like omega-6 fatty acids (walnuts are also rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids) and monounsaturated fatty acids, both of which have been found to improve cardiovascular health by lowering LDL or bad cholesterol. (And don't be afraid of the 'F' word -- a recent Spanish study found participants who ate nuts at least twice a week were more than 30 percent less likely to gain weight than those who almost never ate nuts.)

Besides healthy fats, nuts (especially walnuts, pecans, and chestnuts, according to one Norwegian study ) are loaded with powerful antioxidants, which may contribute to their cardio-protective effects by slowing the development of atherosclerosis.

They are also full of essential B vitamins and minerals, including magnesium, calcium, and potassium, which are all important for regulating blood pressure and have been associated with a lower risk of stroke. Selenium and vitamin E, which function together as a potent antioxidant, are both found in nuts, especially Brazil nuts and almonds. How much do you need?.

Brain and Spirituality

Medically speaking, it was just brain surgery. But for some patients, it was a spiritual reawakening.

Researchers report in a new study today that they have found regions of the brain that seem to impact a person's level of spirituality.

The researchers worked with 88 patients with tumors in various locations in the brain and found that those with damage in the parietal region -- located in the top rear region of the brain -- could be seen to have a change in their attitude toward spirituality, something that tends to be relatively constant in a person.

'This finding highlights the key role of parietal cortices in spirituality and suggests that changes of neural activity in specific areas may modify even inherently stable dispositional traits,' explained Cosimo Urgesi, one of the study's lead researchers and an assistant professor in psychobiology and physiological psychology at the University of Udine in Italy.

The specific scale researchers used to determine spirituality is known as self-transcendence, a measure used to determine spirituality that appears to remain stable in a person over time. Read the entire article.

The Story of Bottled Water





Today is World Water Day, and to mark the occasion I'm joining promotion on the release of the latest Story of Stuff Project short film.


Like The Story of Stuff, this new film uses simple words and images to explain a complex problem, in this case manufactured demand:  how you get people to think they need to spend money on something they don't actually need or already have.

Over the last two decades, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Nestle and other big beverage companies have spent untold millions of dollars making us afraid of tap water. They've told us that if we want to be sure what we drink is pure and clean-not to mention hip and fashionable-we should buy bottled water.

Unfortunately
, it worked.

InDrinkingWater the United States alone, we consume approximately 500,000,000 bottles of water each week. Imagine that: while 1 billion people lack access to safe drinking water worldwide, other people spend billions of dollars on a bottled product that's no cleaner, harms people and the environment and costs up to 2,000 times the price of tap water.

But there's good news: Last year, for the first time in a long time, bottled water sales fell-not that much, but they went down. Consumers who want economy, portability and convenience are switching to refillable metal bottles.Restaurants are proudly serving tap water. And cities, states, companies and schools around the world are ditching the bottle to save money and do their part for the environment.

Still, we've got a ways to go.

So please, take a minute today to watch The Story of Bottled Water. Then pass it along to your friends, family, neighbors and co-workers-anyone you think might be interested.

The Intestinal System

The intestinal system is like a city's waste disposal plant. While the digestive system breaks down nutrients so they can be distributed throughout the body, the intestinal system generally absorbs waste products out of the body so that they can be excreted with indigestible food fiber.

The colon may be divided into three parts: ascending, transverse and descending. It is only five feet long, but it has a 2-1/2 inch diameter, three times the diameter of the small intestine. The colon forms a frame for the convoluted shape of the small intestine.

The Elimination Process

Undigested food - in liquid form - flows from the small intestine into the large intestine. Once there, most of the water and mineral salts are absorbed into the body. The remaining semi-solid water is about 60-70 percent water and 10-30 percent bacteria combined with indigestible cellulose material, dead cells and other waste materials. The smooth muscular walls of the colon contract (called peristalsis) to move waste through the colon. This takes anywhere from 12-24 hours or longer, depending upon the amount of roughage present.

Stools reveal a lot about your health. You can get clues about dietary issues, gastrointestinal health, and even whether your stress, anger, or anxiety levels are too high. Stools: The Bowl Truth

Factors in Colon Health

Much like the teeth, the colon is adversely affected by the types of food we eat. People with diets high in refined foods (sugar and white flour, for example) and low-fiber foods (meat, eggs and dairy products) and low in high-fiber foods (fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains) are especially susceptible to intestinal problems. Colon and rectal disorders are much more common in America than in Africa or Asia, due to the difference in diets. For example, in parts of Africa, the diet contains seven times more fiber than that of the average Western diet. Read the entire article.

Silent Killers of Women

When it comes to silent killers of women, ovarian cancer, uterine cancer and hepatitis are particularly insidious. That's partly because these diseases show little or no specific symptoms, and they cause tens of thousands of deaths every year.

Dr. Oz warns of three diseases with little or no symptoms that kill many women.
Dr. Mehmet Oz appeared on 'Good Morning America' today to discuss the three diseases and tell you how you can recognize the symptoms. Read the entire article.

Boost Your Brain Health

From AARP Magazine

Worried you're losing it? Join the club. But with a few easy changes, you can stay at your sharpest.

Gary Small, M.D., remembers the patient well. An accomplished mathematician in his early 70s, the man consulted Small after struggling with calculations, and after his wife noticed he was getting cranky. Small, director of the UCLA Center on Aging, put the mathematician through a battery of tests—and the man got top scores on all of them, including 30 out of 30 on a memory test and a whopping 140 on his IQ test. So when Small saw the patient's brain scan, he was stunned: it had all the markings of full-blown Alzheimer's disease.

"Usually, people with such profound brain changes can barely carry on a conversation," says Small. "This man was still doing high-level mathematics." Though the case is extreme, it is not unique. In fact, up to 20 percent of people autopsied who had no major memory problems are discovered to have had Alzheimer's, says Yaakov Stern, Ph.D., a neuropsychologist at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York City.

Fish Oil - Safety Questions

It's so important to consider whether the company of the brand you purchase for your health supplements is one that tests their raw materials. That's one of the main reasons we have stayed with Nature's Sunshine Products since 1982. Quality does make the difference in not only safety ... but potency.

Some of the largest fish oil supplement producers, and the stores that carry them, are selling supplements contaminated with a class of now-banned industrial chemicals known as polychlorinated biphenyl compounds, or PCBs, charges a lawsuit filed earlier this month by the Manteel Justice Foundation and two other citizens.

Consumers who want the health benefits of fish oil shouldn't have to take the health risks of an extremely toxic man-made chemical,' David Roe, one of the attorneys for the plaintiffs, said in a press release. The Details.

Purchase Quality Omega 3 Fish Oils.

Does the Urinary System Affect Overall Health

This is the first area that generally needs to be addressed in order to have good health. Individuals can go a long time without having a bowel movement and not have immediate problems. However, they can't go very long without voiding their urine. Most of the herbs will attempt to flush toxins through the urinary tract. If a client's system can't eliminate the toxins, they will normally begin to experience discomfort. I have learned through the years that many herbalists consider the skin the "3rd Kidney." The skin is supposed to move at least 2 pounds of waste per day. Most of us work at a sedentary lifestyle or in air conditioned environrnents and we rarely sweat. Sweating is how the skin removes normal waste. This causes our kidneys to get overburdened. I also ask folks these questions related to urinary difficulties. Read the entire article.

Build Stamina-Boost Immunity

How to pick foods that build stamina and boost your immunity ...

What you put into your body before and after a workout may be as important as the kind of exercise you do. Research has shown that if you're not properly fueled, vigorous exercise can compromise your immune system rather than boost it—by breaking down muscles instead of building them up and by depleting your body of essential nutrients.

Here's a simple plan to optimize your performance. Read the entire article.

Internal Pollution

by Jim Robertson

Many health problems are related to toxins building up in the body over a period of time from food, water, and air. Symptoms may include arthritis, gout, sinus, allergies, colds, flu, body odor, or many other things. Internal cleansing on a regular basis is essential if someone is going to be disease-free and healthy long term.

The majority of toxins should go out through the kidneys. Many people don't drink enough water to accomplish this or they fail to drink pure water. Pure water includes distilled or purified, but not tap water. A minimum of 6 to 8 glasses a day is necessary for most people.

Internal cleansing has to start with the bowel. Toxins from the bowel can seep into the bloodstream and poison the rest of the body. Many people go for days or even weeks without a bowel movement. A lady came into my store one day that had been hurting under her right ribs. She thought that she had a gallbladder problem. She said that she had heartburn every time she ate and went for weeks without a bowel movement. Read the entire article.

My Thyroid is Not Working

by Dr. Hugo Rodier, M.D.

I hear this from a lot from a significant number of patients who feel practically all their symptoms (fatigue, hair falling out being the most common) are due to their thyroid, despite normal serum levels. They frequently add that they have been told or they read on the internet that it is common to have thyroid dysfunction that does not show up in the testing.

Chances are you have also contemplated this dilemma. Assuming you are reading this because you respect my opinion, I will pull no punches in telling you what I believe is going on. Read the entire article.

Urine in Fake Fragrances

For most shoppers, getting fancy-looking goods at low prices is a good enough reason to buy counterfeit products. But a knockoff is not always a great deal, especially when it comes to counterfeit perfume, because a fake fragrance gets absorbed into the skin.

"Active ingredients found in counterfeit fragrance include things like urine, bacteria, antifreeze," Valerie Salembier, senior vice president and publisher of Harper's Bazaar, said.

Salembier and her staff have dedicated themselves to exposing counterfeits for more than six years. In the January issue of Harper's Bazaar, they target fake fragrances. They brought the issue of counterfeit perfume to "GMA's" attention.

"You're putting something on your face, on your neck, on your wrists. Those are sensitive parts of the body, so, to have active ingredients that could endanger your life is a very serious health risk," Salembier said. Watch the video.

Plastic in Chewing Gum

According to Chemistry.About.com, chewing gum was originally made from tree sap called chicle, a natural rubber, and sometimes various waxes. But…

After World War II, chemists learned to make synthetic rubber, which came to replace most natural rubber in chewing gum (e.g., polyethylene and polyvinyl acetate). The last U.S. manufacturer to use chicle is Glee Gum.

Polyvinyl acetate? What’s that? According to the article “Behind the Label: Chewing Gum” published this week in The Ecologist, polyvinyl acetate (a type of plastic) is manufactured using vinyl acetate, a chemical shown to cause tumors in lab rats. In fact, in 2008 the Canadian government was so concerned about vinyl acetate used in the production of chewing gum that they added it to a list of substances to be considered toxic. However, according to the The Ecologist article, government regulators were forced to back down due to industry pressure.

But is all chewing gum made from polyvinyl acetate? If the label lists “gum base” as an ingredient, it may contain “petroleum, lanolin, glycerin, polyethylene, polyvinyl acetate, petroleum wax, stearic acid, or latex,” according to the Vegetarian Resource Group.

The trouble is that we as consumers have no way of knowing which of these ingredients, if any, are included in a particular gum base because manufacturers are not required to go into any more detail! Read the entire article.

Weight Loss with MetaboMax Plus

Excerpts from The Science Behind Nature's Sunshine Weight Loss Products by Dr. William J. Keller with Darlyn Britt

MetaboMax Plus

White fat (also called adipose tissue or fat) is simply stored energy. When you eat more than you burn, it is stored as white fat. Everyone has it. Some people have more than others. Excess white fat can lead to health problems. As fat builds up, it can lead to blood pressure issues, hardening of the arteries, insulin resistance and blood sugar concerns.

All of these are precursors to Type II diabetes. White fat can also contribute to inflammation. Therefore, it is logical to decrease extra white fat in the body. In designing the new weight management formulas, Nature's Sunshine discovered a lot of powerful ingredient synergy that can assist in achieving meaningful weight loss when added to a suitable regimen of diet and exercise.

What Is Thermogenesis?

A lot of people define this as fat burning, which is a pretty apt description. But let’s take it a step further. Thermogenesis is the generation of heat in the mitochondria (the cell’s energy factory) due to an uncoupling of oxidative phosphorylation. What does this mean?

When food is metabolized in your body, a lot of electrons are produced. As these electrons are processed in the mitochondria, the energy liberated is trapped to form ATP—the cell’s energy currency. Normally electron processing and ATP formation are coupled and the ATP produced provides needed cellular energy. When uncoupling occurs, very little ATP is formed. Most of the energy is released as heat.

Free fatty acids from fat cells activate uncoupling and the thermogenic mechanism. Lipolysis, or the breakdown of fat, liberates free fatty acids (hence the name fat burning). The fat disappears and a lot of heat is produced.

Working Together For a Goal

At least five ingredients in MetaboMax Plus combine to synergistically affect lipolysis, which gives the free fatty acids that spark thermogenesis.

Synephrine from bitter orange stimulates the release of noradrenaline (or norepinephrine) that binds to receptors on fat cells, causing lipolysis.

EGCG, the main catechin from green tea, enhances noradrenaline action because it inhibits an enzyme that normally breaks down noradrenaline.

• Natural caffeine from guarana and yerba mate interferes with the breakdown of a key mediator in the lipolytic process.

• The other ingredients act together to cause lipolysis and weight loss.

From this we understand that the free fatty acids from lipolysis stimulate uncoupling. This uncoupling results in thermogenesis. So, fat breaks down, the fatty acids cause uncoupling, and foods are oxidized to give only heat, which is dissipated and not used by the body as an energy source. Remember, this process continues at a fairly fast rate as long as the ATP levels are low.

The remaining MetaboMax ingredients benefit weight loss by different mechanisms.

Capsaicin from red pepper decreases appetite through sensory stimulation, as well as binding to the so-called vanilloid receptor. This receptor is important in body temperature regulation.

Guggulsterones increase the conversion of T4 to the more potent thyroid hormone T3, which is known to stimulate thermogenesis.

Chickweed interferes with fat absorption from the gastrointestinal tract.

MetaboMax Free has the same weight-loss benefits as Metabomax Plus. But this formula is caffeine-free. For this reason, the thermogenic effect of Metabomax Free is slightly less.

A solid weight loss program should also include a sensible diet and a reasonable exercise program. And of course, determination is a key component.

Roundup Herbicide Deadly to Human Cells

Used in gardens, farms, and parks around the world, the weed killer Roundup contains an ingredient that can suffocate human cells in a laboratory, researchers say

Used in yards, farms and parks throughout the world, Roundup has long been a top-selling weed killer. But now researchers have found that one of Roundup’s inert ingredients can kill human cells, particularly embryonic, placental and umbilical cord cells.

The new findings intensify a debate about so-called “inerts” — the solvents, preservatives, surfactants and other substances that manufacturers add to pesticides. Nearly 4,000 inert ingredients are approved for use by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Glyphosate, Roundup’s active ingredient, is the most widely used herbicide in the United States. About 100 million pounds are applied to U.S. farms and lawns every year, according to the EPA.

Until now, most health studies have focused on the safety of glyphosate, rather than the mixture of ingredients found in Roundup. But in the new study, scientists found that Roundup’s inert ingredients amplified the toxic effect on human cells—even at concentrations much more diluted than those used on farms and lawns. Read the entire article.
