What Sugar Does to the Body

A high sugar intake increases insulin production, which turns on genes which cause inflammation, inflammation in the joints, arteries, heart and elsewhere in the body. Inflammation is now considered to be the major cause of disease.
Mangosteen, the main ingredient in the Thai-Go drink, has anti-inflammatory compounds. Omega-3 EPA also has anti-inflammatory properties. NSP's Omega-3 EPA is mercury-free. Many brands are not. By using these products, you reduce the incidence of inflammation in the body and increase insulin sensitivity so that the body can utilize insulin more efficiently and you have a lowered risk of developing insulin resistance, diabetes, heart and weight problems.

Cooking Food in a Microwave Oven Kills All the Antioxidants in the Food.

If you use a microwave oven, live or work where you are exposed to toxins, or don’t eat 5-7 servings of fruits and vegetables daily, it is important to supplement to increase your antioxidant intake. You can enjoy 2 ounces of Thai-Go drink daily or add 2 capsules Super Antioxidant to your supplement program.

Should You Use Milk Thistle?

If you drink alcohol occasionally, you should definitely consider Milk Thistle and anyone who is a frequent user of alcohol should take milk thistle regularly). This herb enhances the metabolism of liver cells and protects them from toxic injury. It is also recommended for patients with chronic hepatitis, abnormal liver function, and those using pharmaceutical drugs that are hard on the liver (including cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy). Milk Thistle is nontoxic and you can stay on it indefinitely.

Calcium & Kidney Stones

An inverse association between dietary calcium and kidney stone risk has been noted in older women and men, and now we know that calcium may protect against kidney stones in younger women, too. Women with the most dietary calcium intake are 27 percent less likely than those with the lowest amount to develop stones. Intake of animal protein and fluid is associated with a reduced risk, while sucrose intake seems to raise the risk.
The researchers conclude that the findings reinforce the idea that “routine restriction of dietary calcium in those who have had a kidney stone is no longer justified.” For those wanting to prevent kidney stone attacks, consider taking SynerPro Calcium, which contains magnesium, calcium, & boron plus vitamin B-6, daily with lots of purified water. Hydrangea, 2-4 caps daily, will cause the stones to break down and pass as they are formed, preventing an attack and is recommended for those with a history of kidney stones.

Testimonials from Very Satisfied Users

Bedwetting Solved (Finally): “My son just turned 9. He stopped wetting his pants during the day when he was about 5 but continued to wet his bed at night at least 2 times each week.

“I tried everything including avoiding dairy (no luck), parasites (no luck), hypoglycemia (no luck) and a whole laundry list of other things. Finally, I read in a book that bedwetting at a late age may be caused by weak bladder muscles and to use amino acids to help strengthen the bladder muscles and to use Magnesium to help avoid spasms. I gave my son L. Carnitine (Stock # 1632-6) and Magnesium Complex. One week after starting this program, my son had one accident at night. Four months later, he has not had a repeat.” NM, Phoenix, AZ


Question of the Month: Is there anything I can take to regulate my periods as I can be on and off all month for at least 20 days?

I would like to know what product to take if you are concerned about internal parasites?

Para Cleanse with Paw Paw can be very effective against internal parasites. It is a pre-packaged program from Nature's Sunshine. Use one package, rest for 1 week and use another package to kill any remaining eggs, larvae, etc...
