Superoxide Dismutase with
Gliadin (SOD) Now Available
SOD is a
natural part of the body's detoxification system. It is present
in every cell in the body and is part of immune response and cell
maintenance. Not only does this enzyme play an important role in
neutralizing superoxide radicals into oxygen and hydrogen peroxide,
it may help prevent age-related decline and maintain neurological
health. It is commonly injected locally in joints for inflammatory
conditions such as arthritis. SOD plays an important role
in the immune response by protecting leukocytes and macrophages.
In doing so, SOD prevents the damage to these cells. SOD supplementation
has been shown to stimulate innate immunity by triggering the production
of immune factors. SOD supports the structural and respiratory systems
and is a superb antioxidant. SOD also helps protect against radiation
damage, whether from biological warfare or treatment of cancer.
Very little information exists on the oral uses of SOD. We know
that it is partially digested by acids in the stomach, and that
enteric-coated SOD capsules are not well absorbed either. This led
many to conclude that SOD, while beneficial in the body, could not
be administered orally. NSP learned that when SOD was bound to a
protein complex, it was not only protected through the stomach but
it was also absorbed in the small intestine through M-cells found
in the Peyer's patches which are part of the lymphatic (immune)
system. This complex is called glisodin and it is made from a proprietary
mixture of melon extract (SOD) and wheat extract (gliadin). This
protein complex allows the SOD to be effectively absorbed. Other
SOD preparations are poorly absorbed even if they are not destroyed
in the stomach acid. The combination of SOD with gliadin clearly
separates NSP SOD from competitors.
NOTE: If you have not yet listened to the NSP product focus call
on “The Importance of Enzymes”, you can hear Dr. Alex
Duarte address this topic through Wednesday, March 12th. After March
12th, there will be a new call up for one month—most likely
as interesting as this one on SOD & Digestive Enzymes. This
is a FREE call provided by Nature’s Sunshine Products. You
can hear the recording 24-hours a day by calling: 1-800-756-3819;
Vitamin A supplementation and bone fractures:
The January 23, 2003 issue of New England Journal of Medicine reports
that a Swedish study looked at vitamin A intake over 30 years in
men. They concluded that men who had the highest blood serum levels
of vitamin A had an increased risk of bone fractures. While this
information confirms data in prior animal studies, it does not mean
that humans should stop using vitamin A supplements. Why? Because
there is much information that states vitamin A is needed by
the body for its antioxidant properties, immune-stimulating properties
and its important role in vision. Consumers needn't be scared
by this study. It was flawed in many ways. It only looked at serum
retinol levels once over 30 years, and only in half of the study
population, and only in males.
Vitamin A, also known as retinol, is a fat-soluble vitamin that
is found in most multivitamins, meats, and especially in vegetables
and fruits. Since vitamin A is fat-soluble, it's a double-edged
sword. On one hand it is absolutely necessary to have in the body
because it serves as an antioxidant in fatty areas of the body like
the liver. On the other hand it is excreted slowly over time. In
a nutshell, you need Vitamin A in the right amounts.
Certain carotenoids such as ß-carotene can be converted to
vitamin A as needed by the body. The body will do this naturally
if there is adequate ß-carotene in the diet. You'll find that
half of the vitamin A content comes from ß-carotene in most
NSP products that contain vitamin A. The daily value for Vitamin
A is 5,000 IU but should not exceed 10,000 IU per day. (The dose
varies for men, women and children.) Continue to take products that
contain Vitamin A from NSP, knowing
they are both safe and effective.
ALLERGY RELIEF: "I
was able to take my son (age 9) off Zyrtec and Nasacort nose
spray with ALJ and Histablock.
First we started with the ALJ which cleared up the allergies
and sinus infections, but he still complained of a pressure
headache so I added the Histablock. His headache went away
shortly after taking the Histablock. As a maintenance dose,
he takes 2 ALJ capsules before bed and he takes 2 Histablock
when he gets up in the morning." email@example.com

PROTECTING AGAINST CATARACTS: Virginia
has been a firm believer in the EW
Combination to strengthen her eyes. Being a senior citizen,
she was very conscientious about using the product. Each time
she would see her eye doctor for a six month's check up, he
would report that her eyes were really healthy. Then, like
so many of us, she became a bit lax and took it "just
every now and then." Her next visit revealed the development
of a tiny cataract. Her doctor suggested she get right back
on those herbs! Next visit, no more problems and the cataract
MUCOUS BE GONE: "I started taking 3 Protease
twice a day for mucous stuck in my throat after a cold and
saw incredible results after just 2 days. By the third day,
I had very little mucous left. I could wake up with a clear
throat and didn't have to hack up a bunch of garbage."
"Early 20's male was so blue that his parents planned
to see a psychiatrist if we couldn't help him. Mary Ann recommended
Calcium w/D, B
Complex, SAM-e, and St.
John's Wort. His elated mother called us within a week
saying, "Praise the Lord! The program is working.”
PLS II TESTIMONIAL: "I tried taking the PLS

a shoulder pain I have been dealing with for over 8 months.
I felt tremendously better the next day! WOW!" Jenny
BREAST ENHANCE TESTIMONIAL: "I have a client that has
used the Breast Enhance product

breasts with an increased size of almost one cup
with only taking 2 bottles." Nicole Bandes
IMPROVEMENT IN FACIAL APPEARANCE: “I
spray Nature's Fresh on my face
at least 2 times a day. At first my face felt real dry but
looked plumb and refreshed. I found that during the first
week that where the old skin sloughed off is where the dryness
feeling came from I was molting!! But the blemishes aren't
there like they were before and I feel like I get plenty moisturizing
now with it alone.” Teresa Gibson, firstname.lastname@example.org
MIGRAINE HEADACHES: I have had migraine
headaches for years. I have tried every sort of herbal program
you can think of to alleviate them with little improvement.
They are the type of headaches that, once you get them, there
is no getting rid of them. The headaches are the one thing
that I have broken down and used a prescription drug for but
it makes me wired and jittery and does little to help the
headache. I decided to take a different approach. At the very
first sign of one of these headaches, I decided to take 3
Triple Relief. WOW! It really
worked. After several hours, if it starts to come back, I
just take 3 more and I'm good for the day. No fatigue, no
side effects. I'm hooked!
