Spring It’s that time of year when the budding trees,
new grass and blooming flowers entice everyone outside. But for many,
a stroll outdoors can quickly turn into a miserable allergy attack. Let
Nature’s Sunshine help you enjoy everything spring has to offer.
HistaBlock safely relieves allergy symptoms!
HistaBlock contains a powerful blend of herbs and nutrients
that naturally enhance immune function and inhibit the release of histamine
and other inflammatory compounds that initiate the sneezing, swelling
and itching of allergic reactions. HistaBlock can be used to safely relieve
allergy symptoms and improve breathing without the side effects commonly
associated with over-the-counter and prescriptions antihistamines, decongestants
and nasal sprays.
Millions of people can use seasonal respiratory support to deal with all
kinds of bothersome particles and HistaBlock may be the answer they are
looking for. Nature’s
Sunshine’s HistaBlock contains nutrients that support the respiratory
system in its battle against pollutants and toxins. This unique formula
helps support mast cells that are responsible for seasonal defense.
Jeannie Patty, of Otway, OH had a severe sinus infection due to an allergy:
“My sinuses were completely blocked. I was not able to blow my nose
due to the swelling. My eyes itched, burned, and watered terribly. I had
extreme swelling in my eyes. I had taken Zyrtec as prescribed by an emergency
room doctor. I also had tried Afrin nasal spray. My sinuses had been blocked
up for over four months and nothing had helped.”
Jeannie began using HistaBlock and Allergy
Homeopathic remedy. “Within 24 hours I could feel relief. For
the first time in four months I was able to blow my nose and have results
of a discharge. For days I was blowing out a thick mucus that had been
blocked up for so long.”
Jeannie used the Allergy homeopathic every 15 minutes until symptoms improved,
then hourly. She took two capsules of the HistaBlock every hour until
she felt an improvement, then reduced it to three times daily. “I’m
still using the HistaBlock and feel so much better! I definitely recommend
HistaBlock and Allergy Homeopathic formulas for those with similar problems!”

Red Yeast Rice
Rice significantly reduces total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and
total triacylglycerol concentrations compared with placebo and provides
a food-based approach to lowering cholesterol in the general population.

A reminder that anyone taking Red Yeast Rice or any statin drug should
also be taking Co-Q-10.
Statin drugs and Red Yeast Rice block the production of Co-Q-10, which
is needed for heart health. So, although the Red Yeast Rice is preferred
over the prescriptive drugs because it is natural, it, too, will block
or reduce the production of Red Yeast Rice in your body.
ANTIOXIDANTS SCORE AMAZING HEALTH BENEFITS
Eye Disorders, Longevity, & Zinc
There is a connection between eye disorders and serious declining health,
but those taking zinc and high-dose antioxidants have an increased chance
at better survival.
Consider zinc supplementation and anti-oxidants if your visual acuity
is worse than 20/40, or if you have nuclear opacity, or if you have had
cataract surgery to increase your chances of a long life. These problems
may be related to a systemic condition which may take years off your life.
For example, advanced macular degeneration is associated with serious
The decreased health status of those with macular degeneration, cataracts,
or other serious eye problems suggests that these conditions may reflect
more than local processes. The improved health status in those taking
zinc and high
levels of antioxidants is encouraging.

Antioxidants Prevent Brain Deterioration
In a recent study it was found that those consuming high levels of antioxidants
lowered their risk of getting Alzheimer’s Disease by 87 percent.
Because so few people get the recommended five servings of fruits and
five servings of vegetables daily, they are getting too few antioxidants,
which may be a clue as to why this dreaded disease is on the rise at an
Antioxidants Fight Against Stroke Damage
A new study shows how antioxidants may limit the brain damage a patient
may suffer from stroke or other neurological disorders.
Researchers studied four groups of rats, all fed equal amounts of food
for one month. Three groups were fed rat chow supplemented with blueberries,
spinach or spirulina while a fourth control group ate no antioxidant-rich
foods. Four weeks later, scientists induced an ischemic stroke in each
rat with a blood clot and then later removed it.
To say the protective power of antioxidants on those rats was undeniable
would be an understatement. The size of the stroke suffered by rats fed
blueberry or spinach supplements was half that seen in the brains of untreated
rats. Rats fed spirulina-enriched diets had stroke lesions 75 percent
smaller than their untreated counterparts.
Rats that were pretreated with blueberry, spinach or spirulina diets
also showed greater recovery of post-stroke movement than seen from the

NOTE: When you are not getting an adequate supply of foods that are high
