Over 10 million Americans are fighting cancer. If you know anyone fighting a battle with cancer, please tell them about “Paw Paw”:

For the past 25 years, Dr. Jerry McLaughlin has researched acetogenins and their role in cellular protection. During that time, he has published over 100 articles and studies related to the health benefits of these compounds that are found naturally in certain herbs. A recent clinical study with over 100 cancer patients shows that the extract (containing a mixture of acetogenins) may support the body’s cells during times of cellular stress.

McLaughlin’s research has led to the development of a patent-pending product, ”Paw Paw Cell-Reg”(Stock #511-3) available only from Nature’s Sunshine Products.

What are acetogenins?

Acetogenins are active compounds that affect the production of ATP in the mitochondria of the cell. ATP is our cells’ energy production center and, hence, our body’s major source of energy. Acetogenins modulate the production of ATP.

How do they work?

The energy-inhibiting properties of acetogenins help fight cancer in four ways:

1. Stops the production of cellular energy in abnormal cells, while hearty cells remain unaffected.
2. Inhibits blood cells and vessels growing near the abnormal cells, preventing the transporting and metastasizing of cancer cells.
3. Enhances the effectiveness of common medical treatments for cancer.
4. Reduces ATP levels (the amount of materials available for cellular division).

Where are they found?

The most potent available source of acetogenins is the paw paw tree (Asimina triloba). The twigs contain the most concentrated amount of acetogenins, especially if they are harvested when they are most biologically active.

To hear a one-hour presentation about Paw Paw presented by Nature’s Sunshine Products and featuring Dr. McLaughlin, dial 1 800 756 3819, PIN 007220, 24-hours a day until June 10th when it will no longer be available.

PAW PAW CELL-REG Works Fast: “My grandmother has liver and bowel cancer. Since she started using the Paw Paw Cell Reg (Stock# 511-3), Nature’s Immune Stimulator (Stock #1839-3), High Potency Protease (Stock #1876-1) and Milk Thistle (Stock #4076-5), she has really turned around! She no longer is nauseated and throwing up and she actually has an appetite now. The diarrhea has stopped, and she really seems to feel genuinely better! She has only been taking these products about a month!” K. A.

In a recent conversation, Dr. Jerry McLaughlin had the following to say regarding our new Paw Paw products:

Paw Paw Cell Reg (Stock #511-3) has a suggested dosage of 1 capsule 4 times daily because some people might feel nauseated or even vomit on higher doses. Higher doses will in no way harm anyone and could be beneficial, if they can keep them down.

Don’t use the Paw Paw Cell Reg unless you have diagnosed cancer because the cells may become "used to it," and then it would not be as useful should an abnormal cell growth develop. The analogy would be that you don't take antibiotics daily to prevent a bacterial infection because then when you really need it, it wouldn't be effective. Other than that, there should be no fear in using it.

Paw Paw is in the new ParaCleanse (Stock #4081-0). This product is only used for two cycles of 10 days each and therefore will not cause it to become ineffectual should you need it for abnormal cell growth.

Paw Paw Lice Remover Shampoo (Stock #3534-1) has multiple uses other than just for removing lice. Consider it for any abnormal scalp or skin condition. Among them would be:

  1. Athletes' Foot or toenail fungus. It kills funguses (like candida) on contact. Rub on the area, put socks on and go to bed. In the morning wash it off.
  2. Acne: Wash the area with the shampoo, letting stay on for 1-2 minutes. After rinsing off, apply Pau D'Arco lotion as a moisturizer.
  3. Fleas, ticks, and mange (called scabies in humans): Use as a shampoo, leaving on as long as is feasible before rinsing. This is 100% effective and all natural. Let your vets know about this product as they currently use chemicals which are hard on the animal's nervous system.
  4. Scalp Conditions: Shampoo your hair, leaving on 1-2 minutes. Rinse as usual. This will clear up candida patches in the hair and many other scalp conditions.
