Berries are some of nature's most healthful gifts.

Red Raspberry
The leaves of the red raspberry plant contain trace amounts of several minerals and vitamins and have been used for centuries to support the female reproductive system, especially during pregnancy. Red raspberry leaves contain high levels of tannins and fruit acids, making this herb a popular astringent to tighten and tone tissues. Red raspberry may also help support the digestive system and colon.***

Cranberry & Buchu Concentrate
For centuries, herbalists have known the diuretic properties of cranberry. Scientific studies have concluded that cranberry juice contains substances that support a healthy urinary tract. Cranberries also help promote healthy digestion. Buchu helps nourish the urinary tract. Its powerful, penetrating aroma is akin to peppermint or camphor and helps keep the urinary tract healthy.***

Improving Digestion

Digestion is at the core of maintaining good health. As you provide your body with essential nutrients and it breaks them down into usable fuel for energy, you create a solid foundation for health.

It’s Good to Break Down

We’re not talking about cars or machines here. We’re talking about digestion. Enzymes are specialized proteins that speed up normal, necessary reactions in the body. Digestive enzymes can help make digestion infinitely more efficient.

Proactazyme provides natural, plant-based enzymes that break down starches, proteins and fats. It assists the stomach and small intestines in breaking down food into smaller particles, thereby enhancing proper digestion and helping to eliminate gas, occasional bloating and occasional indigestion.

Contains the following enzymes:
  • A blend of proteases and peptidase—breaks down protein 
  • Amylase, glucoamylase, malt diastase—digests starches (carbohydrates) 
  • Invertase and alphagalactosidase—simplifies sugars 
  • Lipase—breaks down fat into fatty acids and glycerides
Proactazyme features a base of herbs that support digestion, including beet root, dandelion, fennel, gentian and ginger. You know this product is working when you eat a big meal and don’t feel the after-effects.

Maintain Harmony in the Stomach

The stomach is home to a variety of living organisms, some of which can negatively alter normal balance. The effects of certain invaders, especially combined with hydrochloric acid, can be deleterious to the stomach lining and raise digestive-system issues.

Gastro Health
Nature’s Sunshine scientists spent nearly two years formulating this product for the stomach. Gastro Health is a blend of licorice root extract, pau d’arco bark, clove flower, Indian elecampane root and capsicum fruit. Together these herbs aid digestion, soothe the stomach, and help minimize gastric heartburn, acid indigestion and occasional discomfort. Gastro Health helps you maintain critical balance.

Get Your Beneficial Bugs

Probiotics are healthful bacteria that perform a number of good and necessary functions in the body, including promoting immune system health, aiding in the absorption of vitamins, breaking down some foods, and more. Adding probiotics to the daily diet can pay huge dividends in maintaining smooth digestion.

Flora Force®
This best-selling formula is a blend of four types of beneficial bacteria: Lactobacillus acidophilus, L. rhamnosus, L. casei and Bifidobacterium longum.

Replenishing friendly bacteria can help:
  • Support the digestive and intestinal systems
  • Promote intestinal and respiratory health in children 
  • Improve immune system function 
  • Help maintain vaginal and urinary tract system health 
  • Help synthesize needed B vitamins
Probiotic Eleven

Getting extra quantities of friendly bacteria helps to rebalance the normal, healthy populations in the gut. It’s especially important to replenish probiotics after intestinal cleansing or any illness or medication that may harm this delicate population.
Nature's Sunshine's Probiotic Eleven provides a full complement of 11 strains of beneficial bacteria that offer a variety of aid to the body, including intestinal, digestive and immune support.

Small Choices Can Reduce Inflammation & Chronic Disease

Dr. Travis Stork stood at Nature’s Sunshine Products’ National Convention and presented his solution to better health. It was based on two messages:

• Inflammation is the biggest health threat today
• Good health comes from making small, simple choices every day.

Those simple messages encompass a lot, and can have far-reaching effects on one’s quality of life.

Inflammation: A Health Care Dilemma
It’s no secret that inflammation is a major health issue for many people. Stork thinks it alone is responsible for the majority of illnesses, and it’s something that can be prevented by taking responsibility to make health a habit.

“One in in two of us have a chronic illness, and seven out of 10 deaths are caused by chronic disease, which means we have chronic inflammation,” Stork said. “A lot of these diseases are preventable.”

Those diseases, he said, start with a poor diet, which leads to inflammation, which leads to a variety of problems. Some include:

• Obesity causes inflammatory processes in the body, that if not addressed, will lead to other illness

• Inflammatory conditions can lead to diabetes, heart disease and cancer, strokes and major depressive disorders

• Kids who eat three or more fast food meals a week have increased risk for asthma and hay fever.  More of these kids are diagnosed with Type II diabetes.

“It’s truly become a health care dilemma,” he said.

Not surprisingly, fast food is a main culprit. The cycle of eating fast food, however, can be difficult to break. Here’s what Stork says happens when you eat fast food:

• Dopamine pleasure hits a high
• The body produces insulin
• Fat cells multiply in number, releasing cortisol.
• Blood pressure rises
• Inflammation rises
• The only thing that makes you feel better is the next meal
• All the sugar, fat, and salt is designed to cause addiction

Good Health Comes from Small Choices
Stork really drove home the point that consistent, small choices are what will drive a healthy life.

“We are in control of our health. In so doing, we become role models for others,” he said. “We make these subtle, seemingly inconsequential decisions every day that affect our health.”

Some of those decisions he mentioned are eating a healthy breakfast every day, flossing teeth, putting on sunblock, regular exercise, and of course, making wise decisions on the food we eat.

“Eighty percent of Type II diabetes are thought to come from lifestyle choices,” Stork said.

Healthy Living Starts in Two Places: the Kitchen and Movement
Stork said we currently live in a health care system that is focused on treating diseases instead of preventing them; that we take care of problems after they happen and not before.

"Let food be thy medicine. Hippocrates was onto something,” Stork said. “Healthy living starts in the kitchen and studies show that lifestyle (exercise and diet) can decrease your chance for many cancers and can decrease the recurrence of cancers.”

He told the story of his father who was 60 pounds overweight and on medication for much of his life. The medication he took was to treat his symptoms.

“Not once did he ever have a conversation with anyone about how he could reverse his condition. "Sometimes we overprescribe when the best thing to do would to write a grocery prescription," Stork said.

Nature's Sunshine Passes FDA Inspection With Flying Colors

Nature's Sunshine Passes FDA Inspection with Flying Colors 

The Food and Drug Administration oversees the natural health industry. An FDA inspector recently visited Nature's Sunshine's Spanish Fork manufacturing facility for a surprise inspection and audit. 

After just two and a half days of watching employees throughout the facility do their jobs, and inspecting records and documents, the auditor was satisfied. She had seen everything and had no questions and found no deficiencies

By comparison, a typical FDA audit for supplements lasts 4 days, and in 2011 and 2012 70% of dietary supplement manufacturers failed their FDA compliance inspections. While the FDA is not in the business of issuing compliments, the inspector told Lynda Hammons (Vice President of Quality Assurance and Regulatory Affairs), "NSP did very well."

July 14-20: Omega-3 Fatty Acids Special

Nature's Sunshine Products

Get Your Daily Essentials for Complete Nutrition
Special offer on Omega 3s
July 14-20, 2013 Only

Studies have shown repeatedly that the typical American diet does not provide the levels of essential vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that our bodies need to perform at optimum levels. In order to make up for what's missing from our food and give your body what it needs for optimal health, we have designed the Daily Essentials program.
Complete daily nutrition is the goal. 

A multivitamin alone just isn't enough. We all require 7 categories of nutrients to achieve optimal health:

  1. Vitamins and Minerals
  2. Antioxidants
  3. Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs)
  4. Probiotics
  5. Enzymes
  6. Fiber
  7. Protein
Each month we will focus on one of these categories to help you make informed decisions regarding your nutritional health.

This month's focus is on Essential Fatty Acids.

OMEGA-3 Fatty Acids 
Omega-3 fatty acids are one of four types of fats that the body derives from foods. While many fats can be harmful, omega-3s benefit the body and are especially good for the heart. Found primarily in fish, omega-3s play a vital part in building a strong nutritional foundation.

They provide essential fatty acids that your body needs daily to promote and sustain wellness, including specific nutrients that nourish the brain and help keep cell membranes elastic. Fatty acids also help protect nerve tissue and support eye health.

Supportive but not conclusive research shows that the consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids (both found in NSP Super Omega-3 EPA) may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Omega-3s also benefit the structural system and the skin.

We all want to feel our best every day. So help your body out, and give it the omega 3s it needs to feel great and function properly. 

To get started on a beneficial Daily Essentials regimen, take advantage of this special offer on Super Omega-3 EPA.

From July 14-20th only, save up to 25%!
