A Note From Randal

Hi everybody!  Recently, we did a major overhaul to the way the site looks.  Stop by and give us your feedback.  We appreciate your input and want our site to be a resource that is helpful to you.

Welcome to all who have joined our Sunshine Family.  Thanks for choosing us as your sponsors and for all of your "hard" work Sharing Sunshine (I know it’s so much fun).  It’s wonderful owning your own business and your own destiny.

Winter is soon here.  Here in Virginia, we are beginning to have frosts so we are having to bid a farewell to our brightly covered yard.  Donna’s website (blog), The Nature In Us contains a lot of natural health info.  Subscribe to the email that will send you a list of topics 3x a month (see left sidebar).

Blessings to you and your business,

Donna

New Product:  Super ORAC

Benefits:

* Provides key nutrients needed by the body to neutralize free radicals.
* Helps prevent cellular damage.
* May exhibit anti-aging benefits.

Super ORAC Antioxidants are the body’s natural defense against free radicals. They scavenge them, "mopping up" free radicals before they have a chance to harm cells.

Super ORAC combines eight powerful ingredients known to quench free radicals—decaffeinated green tea leaves, mangosteen pericarp extract, turmeric root, quercetin, resveratrol, apple extract, açaí berry extract and selenium.

Green tea contains polyphenols, which are potent antioxidants. EGCG is considered the most active polyphenol. It appears to help protect brain cells from damage.

Mangosteen xanthones are potent antioxidants with special affinity to supporting the circulatory system. One such xanthone, mangostin, helps the body battle the oxidation of LDL cholesterol.

Resveratrol protects both the nervous system and the cardiovascular system.

Turmeric contains curcumin, a polyphenol with wonderful health benefits for the immune, circulatory and glandular systems. In studies, curcumin has been shown to inhibit oxidative DNA damage.

The açai berry contains powerful anthocyanins—water-soluble compounds with potent antioxidant actions. This fruit also helps protect against superoxide and peroxyl radicals.

Clell graduated from Utah State University with a BA in History and Sociology. After USU he entered the University of Utah School of Pharmacy and graduated from the U of U with a BS in Pharmacy and Medicinal Chemistry.

Working as a pharmacist for the past 15 years, Clell comes to NSP with a unique perspective on nutritional supplements and the proper role of herbs and natural products in health. In pharmacy practice his area of clinical expertise was concentrated in nutritional supplementation and clinical investigation and research.

Since joining NSP in 1997, Clell has been extensively involved in natural product research, new product research and writing for The Green Book. He has also published a book titled "Drugs and Natural Alternatives" which explores the ways in which natural alternatives might be employed to aid the most common ailments for which medications are prescribed. A new book "Drugs and Nutrient Depletion" was published in 2003 and explores the hidden side-effects associated with the depletion of nutrients through prescription drug use. His experience leads him to advocate a stronger role for natural products in our healing philosophy. Clell is currently Manager of Health Sciences for Nature’s Sunshine Products.

Group Address Labels

Robin sends Christmas cards to her NSP group and called to find out how she could download a list of her group so she could address envelopes.  NSP informed her that there is no download option available at this time other than to get addresses individually from the reports.  However, they do print and mail you these reports for a small fee ($3-$10 depending on the size of your group) and even put it all on address labels for you.  She didn’t like having to pay a fee for getting a group detail report, but did see that it was worth it if she was going to get the labels already done.  That saves quite a bit of time and the fee is taken from her bonus check.  She suggested we tell the rest of our Sunshine Family this tidbit of news … and so we are.

Famiily News

Last month we reported Robin Sockness’ 235% increase in her QV with a few changes to her presentation of the way she speaks to potential customers (see archives for details) and a few alterations to the way she presents her business online. In case you think it was just a great month, she’s done even better this month, so we’re sending cheers to Robin for sticking with her scripts and goals for success. She just returned from a trip to Michigan to visit her parents and family. She’s hoping to be able to move there. She’s had her house on the market in Fayetteville, GA. If you know anybody wanting to move south of Atlanta, maybe her house would be a good fit. Her parents are aging and she wants to be there for them. It’s been on the market most of this year.

I’ve not heard much from "the family" this month, so I will assume y’all are out there getting new customers and enjoying this wonderful Fall weather.
