This formula contains a proprietary blend that offers support for male sexual health in three ways: ingredients support blood flow, sexual desire and prolonged sexual response. Erectile function is principally mediated by relaxation of smooth muscle and increased blood flow within the corpus cavernosum. Smooth muscle relaxation is caused by increased levels of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP). cGMP is triggered by the production of nitric oxide (NO). Pomegranate, l-arginine and epimedium leaf extract all produce the catalyst for NO, the enzyme nitric oxide synthase.

Hair Loss Treatment by Robots

"It's a frustrating question no one can really answer: Why does the hair on the back of a man's head remain thick and lush, even while the hair on top withers and disappears?

Unfortunately, medical science still has not figured out the exact reason for male pattern baldness or even a cure, but in the meantime, your government wants to help.

Enter the hair robot.

Newly approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, it's a computer-assisted robotic arm that makes it easier for surgeons to do a little cranial landscaping. Or, as its California manufacturer puts it, to 'harvest hair follicles' from the back of the head and implant them in the barren or thinning areas. Read the entire article.

Americans Living in a "Sick" Care Model

The drug industry in particular is now primarily focused on treating illness, not promoting health, and has an industry market outlook projection of over $880 billion in sales in 2011. That's equal to one-third of TOTAL health care expenditures in 2008!

And guess what?

Top selling drugs have nothing to do with preventive health either physical or mental! The vast majority of them are sold to you based on their ability to lower or reduce isolated symptoms coming from an underlying imbalance in your body.

The more imbalance inside you, the more symptoms, and the more symptoms the more drugs you need.

That's what the drug companies have been telling America for the better part of two centuries, starting with the "patent medicines" formulations from yesteryear. It seems to me that the drug companies have now taken patent medicines to their ultimate pinnacle: a pill for every symptom needed every day.

Is this not a phenomenal business model?

The only thing they need to keep raking in their billions in profits is an endless supply of symptoms, which precludes allowing you to regain your optimal health, because that would drive you out of their business model. An optimally healthy American does NOT fit in their business model.

The sooner you realize this, the sooner you and your family can "opt out" of the health industry's current "sick care" model and truly begin to regain your health. Read the entire article.

Health From Digestive Enzymes

What are enzymes? They are said to be the “powerhouse” of every cell in the body. Intertwined with nearly every system in the body, digestive enzymes determine how effectively the body breaks down food. The body can’t function without them.

Food Enzymes

We are born with some digestive enzymes. However, these alone cannot sufficiently break down all of the food that we eat. The body can produce and replenish enzymes; but still it needs more from outside sources. Natural, raw foods have enzymes in them that are designed to break down the food. These are the same molecules that make fruit ripen and then eventually rot. However, today’s food preparation processes can kill these enzymes, making digestion difficult on the body. If you cook, freeze, dry or can your food, you’ll most likely kill the enzymes your body needs for healthy digestion.

As most of today’s diets include some form of processed food, it’s likely that you have an insufficient level of digestive enzymes. This causes stress on the digestive system, which can lead to indigestion, heartburn, bloating and more. Moreover, digestive stress can affect how many nutrients your body is able to absorb. Often, those with symptoms of digestive stress have a weakened immune system.

Since it’s nearly impossible to maintain a diet of just raw, natural foods, it’s important to supply your body with the essential digestive enzymes it needs. It’s easy to do so with a safe, healthful digestive enzyme supplement that will help you feel better as you find greater health.

Top 5 Benefits of Natural, Whole-Body Cleanses

Toxins are everywhere. They’re in the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe—and the list goes on. Every day new toxins are introduced to our bodies, and there’s only so much the body can do to rid itself of them. Thus, the importance of an occasional natural body cleanse.

Natural Body Cleanses
CleanStart® Apple/Cinnamon
CleanStart® Wild Berry
Tiao He® Cleanse
Para Cleanse
Dieter’s Cleanse

Natural body cleanses help rid the body of toxic build-up, resulting in many health benefits—five of which are listed below.

• Boost Immunity
Toxic waste built up in the digestive tract affects the body’s ability to absorb many of the nutrients it needs for optimal health. Without a well-balanced diet full of an array of vitamins and minerals, the immune system can’t function at its potential. Even with a healthy diet, waste build-up can prevent the body from using those essential nutrients. A body cleanse dislodges the built-up waste, allowing the immune system to fully reap the benefits of nutrients. Additionally, toxins can be present throughout the body, not just the digestive tract. A natural body cleanse gives the body the extra boost needed to shed those toxins, which also boosts the immune system.

• Regulate Digestion
Toxic built up in the digestive tract can negatively affect the body’s digestive regularity. Irregularity affects the way you feel on more than one level. As mentioned before, the digestive tract is where the body absorbs nutrients. Digestive regularity means increased energy, immune system support and even emotional well-being. Ridding the body of toxic build-up puts the body back on track for healthy, regular digestion.

Digestive Supplements That Support Natural Body Cleansing

LBS II®
Cascara Sagrada
Intestinal Soothe & Build
Bowel Detox
Slippery Elm
Gentle Move
Black Walnut

• Improve Sleep
During sleep, the body digests at a much slower rate. Build-up in the digestive tract can further jeopardize digestive efficiency during sleep and disrupt a restful night. A known side effect of toxic build-up is chronic fatigue and restless nights. Cleansing the body of these toxins may help restore healthy sleeping patterns.

• Support Weight Loss
There may be a significant amount of undigested, hardened and possibly toxic food waste in your digestive tract. Ridding your body of this sheds unwanted pounds. Furthermore, kicking off a weight-loss plan with a natural body cleanse gives the body a fresh start to a healthy, nutritious lifestyle. Optimizing the body’s ability to properly absorb nutrition can positively impact any weight-loss plan.

• Clear Skin
One of the ways the body removes unwanted material is through the skin. This can clog pores and cause acne. Cleaning the inside of the body with a natural body cleanse can actually keep the outside of our bodies looking and feeling healthier.

Flame Retardants in U.S. Kids Blood

Children in California have high levels of flame-retardant chemicals in their bodies, and they appear to be exposed to these chemicals through household dust and food, a new study shows.

The study found that Mexican-American children, whose mothers emigrated from Mexico before they were born, had blood levels of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) that were seven times higher than children of the same age who were born and grew up in Mexico.

'The only levels that we've seen in the literature that are higher than the California children blood levels are children living on a hazardous waste site in Nicaragua,' says study researcher Brenda Eskenazi, PhD. Eskenazi is director of the Center for Environmental Research and Children's Health at the University of California, Berkeley. Read the entire article.

Vegetarians May Have Lower Risk of Cataracts

People who eat meat may be at increased risk of developing cataracts compared to vegetarians, a new study shows.

Researchers at the University of Oxford in England say vegetarians and vegans are 30% to 40% less likely to develop cataracts than people who eat a lot of meat.

Other factors, such as smoking, diabetes, and exposure to bright sunlight, also have been linked to greater risk of cataracts.

Researchers studied data on 27,670 people participating in the European Prospective Investigation in Cancer and Nutrition study. The participants in the study, all older than 40, were asked to fill out dietary surveys between 1993 and 1999. They were checked on between 2008 and 2009 to see if they had developed cataracts; about 1,500 had developed cataracts. Read the entire article.

FDA Cracks Down on Tainted Supplements

Not only are there lots of recalls on foods; the supplement industry is also another area that contamination can occur. Most supplement manufacturers don't own their own testing equipment to know what's in the raw materials when they get them ... and most don't manufacture to pharmaceutical standards either.

The Number ONE reason we sell Nature's Sunshine Products is because of quality. The company began in 1972 and has never had a recall. They have the equipment to test raw materials and numerous other steps along the manufacturing line of processing. The Herbs Place has distributed Nature's Sunshine Products (NSP) since 1982 and we've never had a complaint about quality. That's saying something to me ... and that's why I personally use the products. Get more info on NSP quality control process.

From CNN blogs:

Manufacturers who put tainted or undeclared ingredients into dietary supplements were warned Wednesday by the Food and Drug Administration that they can no longer market them as such. The FDA has received reports on well over 100 products over the last few years, a number of them detailed serious injuries, even deaths. In fact, since 2007 the agency has sent out consumer alerts about 300 adulterated products.

'These tainted products can cause serious adverse effects, including strokes, organ failure and death,' said FDA Commissioner Dr. Margaret Hamburg. 'The manufacturers selling these tainted products are operating outside the law.'

Concern over the growing problem has led the agency to send a letter to five major trade associations - the Counil for Responsible Nutrition, Natural Products Assocation, United Natural Produdcts Alliance, Consumer Healthcare Products Association and American Herbal Products Association - whose member companies make dietary supplements, warning them of the problem and of 'their legal obligations and their responsibility to prevent tainted products from reaching the US market.

Lifetime Cookware - NatureSeal

It's that time of year for weddings, when many couples begin their new lives together. In our world of disposable things, it's great to find a cookware that will last forever. We purchased a 20-piece set back in 1989 and are still using it. When I use the polish it looks like a brand new set of cookware. What a blessing it's been not to have to continue to replace pots and pans as I see so many of my friends doing.

NatureSeal is a five-ply cookware with tight-fitting, self-sealing lids which decreases nutrient and flavor loss by cooking foods in their own juices. Too often the nutrients and flavor are boiled right out of food. Good health begins with healthy food.

Stainless steel is a great cooking surface because of its durability and cleanliness. Because it's a poor conductor of heat, two layers of pure alluminum and one layer of alluminum alloy are sandwiched between the two layers of durable 18/10 stainless steel construction.

Foods cook in their own juices making meals easier to digest than foods cooked in oil or grease. Foods shrink less and the nutritional value loss is minimized. The water seal keeps flavor and nutrition in the food. A vapor seal is created by the tight fitting, self-sealing covers. Tight seal allows food to cook in own juices. Reduces need to peel, core, boil or fry.

This five-ply, aluminum core and stainless steel cookware can be used at lower temperatures, which makes cooking more energy-efficient.

Nature's Seal is available in a 12-piece set and also as open stock pieces.

Lifetime Warranty
Full 5-ply construction for even heat distribution
18/10 stainless steel will not react with food
Constructed for waterless cooking to preserve nutrients
Convenience of stack cooking
Durable and easy to clean
Flame guards help kep handles cooler
Handles and knobs are dishwasher and oven safe up to 350'

Nature's Sunshine Prices Increase June 1st

It is Nature’s Sunshine’s goal to provide you with the finest natural health supplements at the best possible prices. As you know, the price of gasoline, food, cotton and clothing have gone up dramatically in recent months. Nature's Sunshine is pleased to announce that they have successfully negotiated with raw material suppliers and other vendors, and were able to pass along a very moderate price increase.

Although most products will experience an increase in price, 84 products will not be affected. They also decided not to increase the prices of the JumpStart Packs, individual JumpStart products within the packs and other recently introduced products, including the entire Solstic and Nature’s Fresh cleaning and laundry product lines.

Because some raw materials and manufacturing processes had higher-than-average cost increases, certain product lines and specialty products have experienced slightly-larger price increases. These include the Chinese herb TCM product packs and most of the pre-packaged box products (Tiao He Cleanse, Para Cleanse, Dieter’s Cleanse and Candida Clear).

Natural Body Cleansing

The benefits of a natural body cleanse reach beyond ridding the body of harmful toxins—they allow for a better life. With the stress of each day weighing on our shoulders, we’d all like to feel more energized. However, our bodies are constantly bombarded with toxic chemicals in the air we breathe and the food we eat. Naturally, our bodies can’t keep themselves completely clean of toxins and consequently that toxic waste builds up. Participating in a natural whole body cleanse helps relieve the body of the toxic build-up and maximize health.

Each body system is closely connected—digestive, circulatory, muscular, immune, respiratory, nervous, etc. At the beginning of these close connections is the digestive system, where the body first extracts essential nutrients needed for survival. Coincidentally, the digestive system is where much of the body’s harmful toxic build-up occurs.

Toxic build-up in the digestive system could actually be robbing your body of many of the vitamins and nutrients you provide it. As a result, you may feel fatigued, experience restless sleep, a weakened immune system, irregular digestion or unnecessary weight gain—and the list goes on.

Occasionally clearing the body of toxic build-up can positively affect every system in the body. With improved digestion and ability to absorb nutrients you can tackle the stress of life with a more enthusiastic, energetic approach.

Check out Nature’s Sunshine’s natural body cleanse products today!.

When Alzheimer's Turns Violent

One minute, Sam Cohen, 80, points to photos of his kids and talks about how his son wanted to become an actor. The next minute, he unravels.

Cohen, a former New Jersey taxi driver and ironworker, is convinced his family will steal his money. He talks about escaping to Israel. He ignores his grown children's pleas to take his medication -- he tells them they've been brainwashed. And he threatens his wife, Haya.

Earlier this month, he went from paranoid to physically violent. An attack on Haya put Cohen in a hospital psych ward. Read the entire article.

Laughter and Music Lowered Blood Pressure

From CNN Health

Listening to your favorite tunes or funny jokes could lower your blood pressure, perhaps even as much as cutting salt from your diet or dropping 10 pounds, according to the preliminary results of a small study presented Friday at American Heart Association meeting in Atlanta.

In the study, Japanese researchers found that people who took part in bimonthly group sessions built around music or laughter lowered their systolic blood pressure (the top number in the reading) by an average of five to six points after three months. By contrast, the average blood-pressure reading in a control group that received neither therapy didn't budge. Read the entire article.

Skin Support for Sunny Weather

UV exposure is a major risk factor for the development of two types of skin cancer; basal cell carcinoma and melanoma. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that there were 45,625 new cases of melanoma in the United States in 2003. A total of 7,818 people died from the condition in the same year, making melanoma the deadliest form of skin cancer. (1) Severity and frequency of sunburns at any age contribute to DNA damage in skin cells and ultimately melanoma development (2).

In 2004, approximately 34 percent of adults reported experiencing at least one sunburn in the previous year (1). This demonstrates that even as adults with knowledge of the sun's damaging effects, we might throw caution to the wind and overindulge in the sun's rays now and again without adequate protection. In fact, a recent study coauthored by William J. Keller, Ph.D., NSP's Vice President of the Health Sciences and Educational Services Department, documented Thai-Go's mangosteen ingredient to contain compounds with antioxidant actions (3).

Compounds in other key ingredients such as green tea's epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) and anthocyanins found in red and blue fruits such as red raspberries and blueberries share similar actions (4-7). When taken daily, Thai-Go provides a multitude of health benefits.

Sunscreens can be used to help reduce the damaging effects of the sun's UV radiation. Sunscreens usually contain ingredients that absorb or reflect UV light. The sun protection factor (SPF) is a measure of a sunscreen's effectiveness against UVB radiation. A higher SPF number indicates a higher level of protection. While this protection is good for preventing damage to the skin, it also creates a dilemma for vitamin D. A sunscreen with an SPF of just 8 can inhibit more than 95 percent of vitamin D synthesis in the skin (8). Many products provide greater protection than this.

When considering the best source of vitamin D, the American Academy of Dermatology says, "Get vitamin D safely through a healthy diet that may include vitamin supplements. Don't seek the sun" (9). As mentioned above, it can be difficult for some to meet their daily vitamin D needs through the diet, even when supplementing with a general multiple vitamin and mineral. This is especially true now as several vitamin D experts from research institutes and universities are finding that the Reference Daily Intake (RDI) of 400 IU for vitamin D may be set far too low. They are also finding that the current tolerable upper intake level (TUIL) of 2,000 may be too conservative, based on strong evidence for safety in amounts of 10,000 IU per day. Considering the latest research on vitamin D, Nature's Sunshine now offers Vitamin D3 with 2,000 IU per tablet.

The American Academy of Dermatology says that sun exposure is the most preventable risk factor for skin cancer. Among several tips, they recommend using a sunscreen with at least an SPF of 15 and providing broadspectrum protection against ultraviolet A (UVA) and UVB radiation.

For additional antioxidant protection and for general skin support, Carotenoid Blend provides a potent combination of UV-protecting ingredients including lycopene, phytofluene, phytoene, lutein, zeaxanthin and more. And remember to supplement with Thai-Go and Vitamin D3 this summer.
