BUYING SUPPLEMENTS AT WHOLESALE PRICES
I’m one of those people who will change the drawers around in the kitchen
just for an afternoon project. I love the challenge of remembering where I
switched what to. It’s like a scavenger hunt. My husband would rather the
spoons rest where they are for life. Opposites always attract….and that’s
a fun challenge too, at times, but it’s what makes life interesting and fun!
Somebody told me a long time ago that I had two options when I hit a
challenge or problem in life. I could get BITTER or I could allow it to
make me BETTER. So, I made a decision then to get BETTER and not BITTER
about life’s events. It’s been a great journey.
With the New Year starting, I’m just itching to make everything look
different. We just moved into this house in November, so it’s really not
time to move furniture around (or change kitchen drawers yet :-), so I took
a look at this newsletter format. I wondered if anything could be
eliminated. I’m always looking for ways to slim down email content for
myself and others. I’m wondering about the “This Issue Contains” section
that the newsletter begins with.
I NEED YOUR ANSWERS! Let’s take a VOTE. This newsletter is for our

We’d love to hear from our readers. I can’t promise to make all the

WISHING YOU AND YOURS A PROSPEROUS AND BLESSED NEW YEAR!
And don’t forget:

HUPERZINE A – HOPE for ALZHEIMER’S and MEMORY LOSS
Since its introduction to U.S. markets in 1998, Huperzine A has been
aggressively marketed as a natural memory enhancer and concentration aid and
is commonly paired with other memory-enhancing ingredients such as Ginkgo,
Ginseng, and Vitamin E.
Several studies, including a 1997 review paper published in JAMA, indicate
that Huperzine A, a purified alkaloid compound isolated from Chinese club
moss, inhibits the breakdown of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.
Studies show that acetylcholine is rapidly broken down in the brains of
Alzheimer’s patients and a shortage of the neurotransmitter appears to
contribute to their memory loss.
The above information explains why NSP has added Huperzine A to their BRAIN
PROTEX formula. Its addition only strengthens the formula which also
contains Ginkgo biloba for circulation within the brain; phosphatidyl
serine, choline, ethanolamine and inositol – substances proven to help
support memory and brain functions; as well as lycopene and alpha-lipoic
acid which are powerful antioxidants; and Rhododendron caucasicum, a potent
free radical quencher used for decades in Russia by longevity enthusiasts.

FDA – PUBLIC HEALTH ADVISORY
Subject: Safety of Phenylpropanolamine
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is issuing a public health advisory
concerning phenylpropanolamine hydrochloride. This drug is widely used as a
nasal decongestant (in over-the-counter and prescription drug products) and
for weight control (in over-the-counter drug products). FDA is taking steps
to remove phenylpropanolamine from all drug products and has requested that
all drug companies discontinue marketing products containing
A recent study reported that taking phenylpropanolamine increases the risk
of hemorrhagic stroke (bleeding into the brain or into tissue surrounding
the brain) in women. Men may also be at risk. Consumers can identify
over-the-counter cough-cold, nasal decongestant, and weight control products
containing this ingredient by looking for “phenylpropanolamine” in the list
of active ingredients on the label. Consumers can check with their health
care provider or pharmacist to see whether their prescription cough-cold or
nasal decongestant product contains phenylpropanolamine. We advise consumers
to discuss alternative over-the-counter and prescription products with their
health care providers or pharmacists.

“J.M. has a long history of canker sores. His wife has been a customer for
two years and has tried L-Lysine, B-Complex and watching his diet for the
mouth sores. His sores would even go down his throat. He tired VS-C and the
results were excellent.” Aimee

ARTHRITIS & SAM-E
“I have a friend who suffers from arthritis. I thought SAM-e might help
with her condition, so I gave her a bottle. The results were wonderful –
but they weren’t what I had expected. She said the SAM-e calmed her nerves
and gave her a really positive feeling. She’s nervous in the first place,
and being an executive at a bank doesn’t help her state of mind. But she
reported back to me that SAM-e took the edge right off. Now she’s asking
for more. It’s wonderful!” Margarite

“It is still with amazement that I think of how long I suffered with
before meeting you and trying the herbs to stop it. My life has been so
much richer since getting on the right “medication,” which is, of course,
not medicine at all. The doctors had me on so many things and nothing was
working. I can now plan my life around something other than a bathroom.
Thanks for everything! I am now retired and traveling and could never have
done this without a solution that God’s herbs provided. I am enjoying my
grandchildren and looking forward to my first great grandchild with renewed
spirit. The program I used was this: BOWEL BUILD (2 capsules with morning
meal and 3 capsules with evening meal), PARSLEY (2 capsules with morning
meal and 2 capsules with evening meal), and BLACK CURRANT OIL (2 capsules
with morning meal and 2 capsules with evening meal). I tried different
combinations of this and different dosages but this is what worked for me.
Praise the Lord! I am forever grateful. I only pray that my story will help
someone else that has reached the end of their “rope” as I had.” R.G .

7-KETO IS SAFE AND EFFECTIVE
for Weight Loss and Reducing Body Fat
Losing weight may be much easier in the coming millennium, thanks to
exciting new research connecting 7-Keto, a potent natural metabolite of the
human hormone DHEA, with the loss of body weight and body fat. 7-KetoTM has
been proven as a safe alternative to first-generation DHEA, a popular
anti-aging supplement, because it does not convert into the sex steroids,
testosterone or estrogens. Previous research focused on its anti-aging
benefits: increasing energy, strengthening the immune system, and enhancing
memory. Now, the newest research promises to help people control their body
weight and body fat.
