If you have pets, I need your help!
For 18 years we have been encouraging people interested
in natural health to consider natural pet foods for their pets.
We have been looking for a quality brand to sell on the website
and we think we’ve found it. The ingredients are excellent and
they ship from the warehouse with free shipping if your order
is over $9. That’s a good deal. The brand we’re considering
is Flint River Ranch.
I need some feedback on this. This business is our only income,
so we’re excited about the opportunity for increased revenue,
but input has always been important to us so that we meet the
needs of our website visitors and customers.
Would you answer 6 questions to help us make this decision
so we know that we’re making a good choice? It’s only one
click away and you answer all the questions at the same time.

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.
The unpleasant smell of this plant’s strong roots belies its numerous
healing effects. Yet, the distinctive odor did not deter the Romans and
Greeks from drinking the tea to treat a wide range of afflictions – most
notably epilepsy and many stress-related ailments. It’s also effective for
easing asthma, menstrual pain and indigestion. Valerian is cultivated in
Europe for its safe, non-addictive, calming properties, and is useful as a
popular natural tranquilizer for all forms of nervousness.
It helps to alleviate anxiety, promotes sound sleep, and benefits those
suffering from exhaustion or mental burnout. Valerian has a balancing effect
on the entire nervous system without any dulling or deadening effects.

IS IT A COLD OR THE FLU?
NEW LIGHT SHED ON MIGRAINE CAUSES
About 28 million Americans suffer from migraine headaches, yet millions go
without treatment. They may not realize that the pain they experience is
from a migraine and not some other headache, or their doctor may not
recognize the symptoms. New studies show that migraines are not caused by
abnormally dilated blood vessels, but by a unique disorder of brain cells.
Migraine sufferers have abnormally excitable neurons in the brain. New
imaging devices show that when a migraine is triggered, these neurons fire
electrical impulses that ripple across the brain, then down into the
brainstem where they activate the pain centers. Blood flow to the brain
surges until the wave passes, then the flow drops sharply. Blood vessels
become inflamed by the rapid changes in blood flow, and this inflammation
combined with the brainstem activation are the causes of migraine pain.
Migraines can be caused by many triggers, including too much or too little
sleep, hunger, bright lights, certain foods, and women’s fluctuating
NATURAL SUCCESS STORIES
"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
More Info on SAM-e:

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. Read more: http://www.7-keto.com/7keto/clinical.html
Nature’s Sunshine’s MetaboStart and Syner-Slim contain 7-Keto along with
other supplements for a well-balanced approach to weight loss and energy!
You can also buy 7-Keto as an individual product:
