Food & Supplement Quality

Why Bother to Supplement?

Dr. James Scala, who was a nutritional doctor for Mount Everest expeditions,  shares the statistic that over 60% of all deaths are related to poor diet. “…over 5 people in America die every 2 minutes from an illness that proper nutrition could have either prevented completely or put far into the future.”

To think that 60% of all deaths could be prevented if we only put enough nutrition into our bodies is mind boggling. In ‘developed’ countries, we have a food abundance and yet we are starving to death! How can that be? Here are 7 answers.

1. Much of the foods we eat today are empty of nutrition. We are eating too much overly processed foods, frankenstein GMO foods,  poor quality foods, and too little natural foods in proper ratios.

2. Agricultural practices have interfered with plants’ abilities to convert raw elements from the earth into bioavailable minerals and amino acids. Our plants are mineral and amino acid deficient.

3. Our society is trained to turn to medical prescriptions to solve the diseases we are becoming afflicted with. All drugs have harmful side effects that rob our immune systems from doing their job of sustaining our health.

4. We have forgotten that it is energy from the sun, from exercise, from love, from unprocessed foods with nutrients, minerals, amino acids, vitamins, essential fatty acids that will keep our bodies healthy and strong, as well as help our bodies recover from any illness we may be afflicted with. So nutrition in our present day is totally disregarded as the solution to all diseased conditions.

5. Dr. Scala stated that baby boomers may be the last generation to have increased longevity, and that their children will have a reduced average life span. He also said that with optimum nutrition, we should be living to 120 years!

6. Dr. Scala formulated the SynerPro (Synergystic Protectors) concentrate for NSP over 20 years ago, way ahead of his time. This concentrate contains broccoli, cabbage, carrot, red beet, rosemary, tomato, turmeric, grapefruit & orange bioflavonoids, and hesperidin). As detailed in Lorene Benoit’s book: The Paw Paw Program, pages 175 – 180 these phytonutrients and phytochemicals are powerhouses for healthy cells. The concentrate blend adds nutrition, energy & enhances absorption of the SynerPro  Vitamins & Minerals, B Complex, Calcium- Magnesium, as well as SynerProtein powder (CA & Europe).  Years after his formulations, mainstream started expounding the benefits of lycopenes in tomatoes, anti-inflammatories in turmeric, flavonoids in rosemary, etc.

7. Benoit’s 284 page book contains great wisdom on correct diet for building health, no matter what condition a person has. Her Case Studies & Testimonials answer many questions that clients have had. Recipes to start making healthier choices are found in Chapter 10.


How to Supplement?

Many people are choosing to make improved food choices, as well as supplementing their intake with vitamins, minerals, herbs and supplemental superfoods. A good decision!  But far too many people end up spending too much money on worthless supplements.

The missing factor is quality control. Not all supplements are  the same.  Diligent research and tests from independent labs such as Brunswick, show that only 15% of nutritional & herbal companies actually have in the bottle what is printed on the label. That is because 85% of all supplements on the market are made by 3rd party companies. In other words, a company takes another company’s products and sticks their own labels on it, then sells them.  There is no quality control here.

Nature’s Sunshine is second to none in quality. Our standards are so consistent that we get results. Nature’s Sunshine has more than the required certifications as they decided in 1972  to invest in quality control, in addition to research & development. Nature’s Sunshine goes so far that they make their own capsules, so they know they are free from fillers and questionable ingredients.

Nature’s Sunshine does not own any farms and therefore they are in no way obligated to sell products that may be of lesser quality. Quality is never compromised because of bad crops, harvesting, drying, or storage. They are free to choose the best quality from around the world, and they do.

One example is Kelp, which comes from Nova Scotia. 600  tests are performed on this one plant before it is released for production. One of these testing procedures is Geiger counter testing for radioactivity.  All products are manufactured in the Utah state of the art manufacturing facility, where every single batch of herbs is fully tested. All test samples are kept for 6 years. Having an organic or wild crafted label means nothing if this degree of testing is not performed. NSP is above and beyond organic; it is potent!

We are very proud to  educate & distribute a product line that demonstrates such a high  level of  sincere integrity. If this message reaches you and you are not a member of Nature’s Sunshine please contact us to start to get results with your nutritional program!

NSP Quality by Design Makes the Difference

There IS a difference between brands of health supplements. That’s not an opinion, it’s a fact based on consistent, reproducible scientific evidence. And user feedback – see a few examples below.

Did you know that the raw materials returned by NSP to its suppliers are sold to other supplement manufacturers, who do not do their own quality control ?

Are you paying for fillers? NSP Products are well known for their strict demand of pure product from the grower to you. They have a direct relationship with all their suppliers, farmers and wild crafted harvesters from every corner of the globe – so they can get the best quality with highest active ingredients. The source can change as climate or other conditions change, which is why they conduct over 150 meticulous tests with every batch they receive, even from 40 year suppliers.

NSP also tests every phase of the production process up to the finished product. No other company has this ability or history! Please watch this 3 minute video to see how this process makes a difference!

Maybe you are spending less or more for brand “C” , but you can’t tell the quality from reading the label. What is your health worth?   Do you want  peace of mind to know that every Nature’s Sunshine product is potent and pure?  Don’t gamble with your health or your money.

In our years of clinical practice we have seen consistent results with NSP. Here are a few that stand out above and beyond:

  • LBS, (Lower Bowel formula) that really works short and long term to get your bowel functioning properly
  • Capsicum to stop bleeding and disinfect deep cuts or puncture wounds
  • Oregon Grape to eliminate staph infections faster than prescription antibiotics with NO side effects
  •  Cranberry Buchu to treat and prevent bladder infections
  • Nature’s Gold to increase bone density
  • Women’s Formula to  regulate menses, decrease cramping and overall just balance whacky hormones
  • F.E. (Flash Ease) to help balance out menopausal symptoms
  • EverFlex with Devil’s Claw and Hyaluronic Acid for joint support
  • Tei Fu Oil for immediate first aid for sore throats, stuffy nose or sinus, motion sickness, breath freshener, insect bites and stings, nuasea, headache – yes! all this in a tiny bottle that lasts forever!
  • Paw Paw (asimini triloba) the herb that inhibits rampant cell growth – stronger and safer natural chemotherapy.

These are just a few examples – take a look for yourself at some of the hundreds of health products available from Nature’s Sunshine Products. Contact our office for specifics and or check here to make sure you get a discount membership, so YOU can get herbs from the same reliable source as the professionals. And, if you want to earn some income by helping others help themselves, please consider NSP as an amazing  business. We are here to support you.

Vaccination Awareness

A new vaccine was just announced in the US, which combines two more vaccines for 2 month old babies. This brings the total to about 9 vaccines to be injected into a baby’s blood before 6 months; suggesting to give them ALL at the same time! Unfortunately for future generations NO studies have been done to determine the long term effects on a child’s immune system by assaulting them with things like formaldehyde, mercury, aluminum, chicken eggs, viruses and other foreign toxins.

In the natural health field, we DO see children becoming less resistant to basic germs due to weaker immunity. At the same time there is an increase in allergies to everything, in learning and behavioral challenges, and an increase in autism.

Before you dumb your child down with unproven vaccines, that ‘may’ offer ‘some’ immunity for ‘some’ time (although no scientists are really sure how much, or how long), please study the issues. Also for adults, especially seniors, who are often frightened into annual flu shots, only to get sick within the month. However, if they die, well…. they were old, right? Then of course there are the scams we know have happened where vaccines such as the swine flu have caused more deaths than they have prevented….. I could go on, but suggest instead that you do your own research. Contact our office for a list of excellent websites to start your own research, and check out some tips on our website for Safe Vaccine Alternatives.
