Back to School and Beyond - Supporting Your Children's Health!

You know protecting your child’s health requires constant effort! You already try to make healthy food choices, but food today is not as nutritious or pure as it used to be and children need extra protection. We can help make your job easier! Give your kids the nutritional boost they need with quality supplements from Nature’s Sunshine Products designed just for children. Here are four key products to help get your children ready for school:

L. Reuteri (60) - Protect and Populate with Friendly Flora


Focus Attention – Help Your Child Focus their Attention

Most children have up to eight colds a year, so chances are that your child will be exposed to a lot of germs at school. Lactobacillus reuteri is a particularly hardy strain of healthy flora that helps to strengthen the body’s natural defenses and maintain healthy equilibrium in the gastrointestinal tract. These healthy flora are essential to good health, digestion, nutrient absorption and immune strength. If your child ever uses antibiotics, it is critical that this and other probiotics be taken at the same time the restore the beneficial bacterial needed in the intestinal tract. This product is available in tasty chewable tablets.   The ability to focus on the subject at hand is crucial to your child’s academic success. A perfect complement to a healthful diet and Herbasaurs Chewables Vitamins and Minerals, Focus Attention provides nutrients that are essential for maintaining brain-stimulation levels while supporting normal neurotransmitter activity in the brain. Your child doesn’t have to have A.D.D. to benefit from this formula which also helps protect the body from stress. Focus Attention is available in capsules or a great-tasting powder drink mix. Adults love it too!


“Herba-saurs” Children’s Chewable Vitamins and Minerals


Liquid Calcium (16oz) to Build Strong Bones for the Playground

Our all-natural chewable vitamins and minerals provide basic vitamin and mineral nourishment for your growing child. Without proper nutrition, kids simply cannot function and perform at optimal levels. We have seen this product quickly perk up children who seem to catch every cold that comes around. Not only do Herbasaurs Children’s Chewables taste good, they also contain no sucrose, starch, preservatives, artificial colors or artificial flavors! Hint: Keep in the freezer and the children will like the taste even better!   Bones depend upon proper nutrition, especially calcium, magnesium, Vitamin D, zinc and manganese to remain strong. Liquid Calcium is specially formulated to increase the mineral’s bioavailabilty. In addition to supporting bone health, Liquid Calcium also helps to maintain balanced pH levels in the body. Calcium, a naturally alkaline substance, helps to offset the primarily acid forming foods—meats, cheese and sugar, which is ever present in kids’ diets. NSP Liquid Calcium is naturally fruit flavored.

The following is an excerpt from the book by Larissa Jones, IS YOUR HOME SAFE?
Most commercial insect repellants contain the active ingredient DEET, which stands for the chemical N, N-diethyl-meta-toluamide. If the name isn’t enough to scare you consider this: DEET absorbs through the skin, and the use of it in high concentrations or for long periods of time has caused skin, eye, and mouth irritation, encephalopathy, headaches, slurred speech, convulsions, and in very rare cases, death. The Centers for Disease Control recommends that DEET not be used on children under three. In addition, it recommends products with no more than 10% DEET.
Natural insect repellants are effective, as long as they are applied frequently. I recommend that you make your own insect repellant using essential oils. Essential oils that contain citronella, such as lemongrass, eucalyptus citriodora, and geranium are effective repellants. Herbal Trim skin treatment is also an effective insect repellant. Here is a great recipe:

Safer Mosquito Repellant

6 drops eucalyptus essential oil
2 drops geranium essential oil
4 drops lemon essential oil
1 drop of peppermint essential oil
1 Tablespoon Herbal Trim skin treatment
¼ teaspoon vegetable oil
1.5 ounces purified water

Pour all ingredients into a 2 ounce bottle with a spritzer top, and shake to blend. Spray liberally onto all exposed skin areas, and repeat as necessary throughout the day.

Proactazyme is a blend of digestive enzymes from plant sources. It contains protease to digest protein foods and other enzymes to digest carbohydrates and fats.

Protease Plus and High Potency Protease are used as systemic enzymes which should be taken on an empty stomach. Fungi, molds, parasites, bacteria and viruses have a protein coating which Protease helps break down so the immune system can do it's job in destroying them. Use this product to assist the lymphatic system and clean the blood of harmful pathogens.


SAM-e - Improve Your Mood, Joints and More!!

Depression? – SAM-e plays a significant role in the production of dopamine, serotonin. Controlled studies of depression found that SAM-e provides antidepressant effects comparable to that of tricyclic antidepressants, with fewer side effects.
Liver weakness? - SAM-e may benefit liver dysfunction and relieve the symptoms of cirrhosis, hepatitis and drug-induced liver damage.
Joint problems? -The largest human study of SAM-e involved over 20,000 patients with arthritis of the knee, hip and spine. After 8 weeks of supplementation, 71% reported an improvement and another 21% reported moderate benefits.

Preventing Ticks


I went to visit my parents this weekend. Their house is surrounded by 30 acres of woods. The last time I went with my two dogs we got home with 6 ticks. Yuck!!!!!

This trip I used half a bottle of Nature’s Fresh and poured enough out to put in two capfuls of the Paw Paw Shampoo. I also add 3 drops of Lemon Essential Oil to make it smell good. I also added a few drops of Tea Tree Oil and Eucalyptus Oil. I shook it and sprayed two dogs with it once a day. I am happy to say that we are all tick free!

  Contributed By: Blake & Kristi Dowding I wanted to tell my story of how fantastic Capsicum is. I cut the inside of my mouth last night due to my carelessness in licking a serving spatula that had a serrated edge. I sliced the inside of my
cheek and it was a fairly sizeable wound. I had heard of capsicum helping bleeding wounds so I tried putting it on the slice wound and it instantly stopped bleeding and within 15-20 minutes the wound closed and basically cauterized itself. The pain went away, also, although it didn't taste great. I now know that if it can heal ulcers AND small wounds. Nature's Sunshine Capsicum works! I will now carry it in bulk form in my first aid kit in my car.

Foods rich in Omega-3 may help prevent Alzheimer's disease.

The new finding fits in with a growing body of scientific evidence that suggests Americans could reduce their risk of developing all sorts of killer diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, and more recently discovered Alzheimer's, by eating a healthier diet-rich in fish, fruits, and vegetables. Researchers believe that Alzheimer's takes years to develop.
A recently completed study at Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke's Medical Center in Chicago recruited 815 people ages 65 to 94, who showed no signs of Alzheimer's. The researchers asked about their diet and kept track of the volunteers for four years. At the end of the four years, 131 people developed Alzheimer's. An analysis of the data revealed that people who eat fish once a week or more had a 60% lower risk of Alzheimer's than those who rarely or never ate fish. Other foods, such as nuts and olive oil-based salad dressing, also contain these helpful fats.
Research suggest various reasons for the effects of Omega-3: It assists nerve cells to fire more efficiently and may help boost memory abilities, those who eat more fish also choose to eat more fruits and vegetables which starve off Alzheimer's because they contain antioxidants that protect brain cells, according to neurologist, Robert Friedland of Case Western University.

USA Today

For those who do not eat fish once a week or more, NSP offers Omega-3 Fish Oil in capsules, a healthy addition to your daily diet.
