Drugs are now on the market to treat dry eyes. While there are some diseases and prescription drugs that can cause dry eyes, the majority of dry eyes are caused by weather, sun, contact lenses, central heating, air conditioning, and the continued use of computer monitors. Therefore, it makes sense to include a dietary food supplement that can hydrate the mucous membranes. The mucous membranes cover our entire body (skin), and internally the mucous membranes are found throughout the digestive tract from one end to the other, as well as the eyes and vagina. When these membranes dry out, they are…• • • • More • • • •
The antioxidants in pomegranate provide numerous health benefits for the circulatory system. As we age, our arteries and other blood vessels become less efficient at transporting blood effectively. This can be due to a buildup in the arteries, hardening of the arteries, and other conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure. In studies, pomegranate protected cholesterol from becoming oxidized and accumulating in the arteries —a problem which, when left untreated, can damage artery walls. Pomegranate works by accelerating the activity of an enzyme that breaks down harmful fats in the arteries.
This wonder of nature has also been shown to…• • • • More • • • •
The human body is estimated to have around 60,000 miles of blood vessels! Uninhibited, healthy blood flow through these strong, flexible arteries, veins, and capillaries is central to good health. There is no drug that can make these blood vessels stronger; however, there is a nutrient that accomplishes the job — mesoglycan. Mesoglycan occurs naturally in the body and works to repair damaged blood vessels not only in the heart but also throughout the body including the legs, brain, and eyes. In fact, the entire circulatory system needs this necessary component to build strong and flexible blood vessel walls. Mesoglycan…• • • • More • • • •
Antioxidant compounds from grape seeds called oligomeric proanthocyanidins or OPCs help protect the circulatory system by reducing blood pressure, protecting blood vessel walls from free radical activity and dangerous oxidation, and discouraging blood clots. In one Italian clinical study, people with either pre- or mild hypertension were split into three groups. Two of the groups received either a low or high dose of grape seed extract while the third group served as a control group with simple changes to diet and exercise. At the end of the four-month trial, both grape seed extract groups saw an improvement in blood pressure,…• • • • More • • • •
A compound in butcher’s broom called ruscogenin has been shown to repair the delicate circulatory machinery that helps our blood vessels become stronger and work efficiently. Butcher’s broom is well known for treating varicose veins and the symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). One multi-center, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial of patients with CVI found that butcher’s broom reduced leg swelling extensively, especially in the lower leg and ankle. By 12 weeks, the study participants reported a noticeable improvement in the heaviness and tension felt in their legs.
Butcher’s broom extract was shown to help the veins in the legs pump…• • • • More • • • •
I think your varicose veins will love you for taking this herb. If you’ve ever heard about resveratrol from red wine, take notice of its first cousin: red vine leaf. Another of grape’s great gifts can be found in the leaves of the red grape plant. Red vine leaf extract provides anthocyanins and other protective polyphenols. It has been clinically proven to relieve the pain and swelling associated with varicose veins and chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), problems due to poor circulation.
In one study, red vine leaf extract was found to be just as effective as compression stockings and other…• • • • More • • • •
A lack of sleep is as destructive to the body as smoking. Everyone should enjoy good,sound sleep at least 8 to 9 hours a night. However, most of the drugs that are prescribed to induce sleep have too many side effects that lower the benefits of their use. A new European formulation of plant oils to induce a sound sleep is now available in the U.S. These four plants are mandarin orange, lavender, lemon balm, and ravensara. These plant oils are available in softgels. Taking 1 or 2 softgels before bedtime will reduce the stress of the day and a…• • • • More • • • •
In order to have a healthy heart there are many nutrients including herbs that can support its health. The number one mineral for a healthy heart is magnesium, the fat source of Vitamin B1 called Benfotiamine, with Vitamin B6 as P-5-P, along with grape seed and pomegranate extracts. Dr. Dennis Goodman, cardiologist in New York, highly recommends in his book, magnesium, for a healthy heart. The heart is a muscle and requires vitamins, minerals, and nutrients to be healthy. While drugs might help save lives, they don’t make the heart healthy, just weaker.• • • • More • • • •
So many people have a New Year’s resolution to lose weight, while this resolution only lasts about 30 to 60 days. Why not lose weight for a lifetime? Being overweight or obese is a major factor in the foundation of many chronic diseases. Being overweight or obese is not only being unfit, but being unhealthy. No pill or tablet is going to help people lose weight without including a healthy diet and exercise or at least increased activity. I would suggest investigating the ketogenic diet, www.ketogenic-diet-resource.com or at least the paleo diet. There is a new weight loss formulation available…• • • • More • • • •
Cold, Flu and Shingles are caused by a variety of viruses. A strong immune system prevents the virus from becoming active. Recent research has shown a study using Freeze Dried Elderberry Extract and various immune supplements; Vitamin E, Vitamin C, selenium, and zinc have blocked the uptake of the virus. During the cold weather season where the immune system is more challenged, it would be good to take 300-600 mg of Freeze Dried Elderberry Extract daily along with the dietary nutrients that are able to support the healthy function of the immune system. This combination of nutrients can be used…• • • • More • • • •

I just saw a new allergy nasal powder spray that relieves the symptoms of allergies within 3-5 minutes. The nasal powder spray reverts to a light gel barrier with a moisture in the nasal passages and stops airborne particles like pollen, mold, pet dander, and dust mites from entering the upper respiratory tract and setting off allergic reactions. It is especially effective for people with hay fever. It can be used during pregnancy and lactation as it contains no drugs or medication. It’s a mechanical barrier that blocks the uptake of these allergens. It can be used whenever it’s necessary, several…• • • • More • • • •
It has gained its reputation based on centuries of use. It was commonly referred to as the medicine that healed the battle injuries of soldiers in medieval wars. It was the herbal folk medicine that has withstood the test of time. And centuries later, science has confirmed a Comfrey (Trauma Comfrey) cream for its healing properties for minor wounds, joint pain, sprains, trauma, strains, and back pain.
Look for a cream that is PA free and guaranteed safe to use even for children over 3. Science has proven that results can be felt within 15 minutes. For me, nature has…• • • • More • • • •
There are many reasons why women who try black cohosh fail to get results for relief of hot flashes, night sweats and mood swings.
Based on European research, there are three basic reasons why women are not satisfied with the results of this highly popular and scientifically studied herb.
• Poor quality sourced black cohosh. Many inexpensive herbs are not the real stuff, they are cheap, inferior alternatives. They are adulterated or spiked with another less expensive herb. Taking more inexpensive herbs provides less benefits.
• More is not better. The ideal dosage for black cohosh is 13 mg once daily. Another reason is not allowing sufficient time to bring about results. A fair trial with this herb is 3 months. I know that…• • • • More • • • •
Propolis is used by the bees after they add beeswax and resin that forms a glue that they then use to seal the openings in their hive against bacteria and viruses. It's their natural antibiotic which protects the health of the hive. The bees collect the source of the propolis from the buds of trees and shrubs. You and I can also use Propolis as a natural antibiotic.

One in four deaths in the United States is cancer-related, and colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second leading cause of cancer-associated deaths. Screening strategies are utilized but have not reduced disease incidence or mortality. In this regard, there is an interest in cancer preventive strategies focusing on lifestyle intervention, where specific etiologic factors involved in cancer initiation, promotion, and progression could be targeted. For example, exposure to dietary carcinogens, such as nitrosamines and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons influences colon carcinogenesis.
Furthermore, dietary deficiencies could alter sensitivity to genetic damage and influence carcinogen metabolism contributing to CRC. High alcohol consumption increases the…• • • • More • • • •
Sea buckthorn, both pulp and seed oil, is valuable for improving the quality and moisture of mucous membranes.
Therefore, it is specifically indicated for dry mucous membranes commonly found in the throat, mouth and oral cavities as well as other cavities throughout the body. Sea buckthorn SBA24 has been clinically studied and shown effective to reduce dryness of the eyes and also menopausal dryness. It can soothe and moisturize the skin up to 48% thereby reducing dry skin. A recent study has shown it can improve the dryness associated with Sjögren’s disease. The studies shown to reduce dryness of the mucous membranes were conducted with 2 grams of Sea buckthorn SBA24 daily. Vaginal dryness was reduced with 3…• • • • More • • • •
It has an ability to restore healthy function to arteries and veins, more effective than any drug developed to this date. Over time it can restructure a healthy lining to the arteries and reduce any inflammatory processes. It restores the elasticity and flexibility to the arteries reducing stiffness and inflexibility to the arteries, which can be an aid to lowering blood pressure. Mesoglycan can also reduce the thickening of the endothelium, which is responsible for reducing the inner diameter of the artery that requires the heart to work harder to push the blood through.
