PROACTAZYME

Life could not exist without enzymes. Our breathing, sleeping, eating,
working and even thinking are enzyme-dependent. They catalyze and regulate
nearly all biochemical reactions that occur within the human body; enzymes
unlock energy in the body and turn food into energy. Vitamins and minerals
require enzymes for delivery in our systems. We’re born with a limited
number of enzymes our bodies can produce in a lifetime; we’ll call this our
"bank account." The enzyme bank account gets depleted by heavy withdrawals
and skimpy deposits.

BRAIN PROTEX with HUPERZINE

Huperzine, the new addition to this formula, occurs in Chinese club moss and
appears to block the enzyme acetylcholinesterase and prevent the breakdown
of acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter. People with Alzheimer’s or
memory trouble have characteristically low levels of acetylcholine.

The formula contains Huperzine, Ginkgo biloba, phosphatidyl serine, choline,
ethanolamine, inositol, lycopene, alpha lipoic acid and Rhododendrum
caucasicum to protect the brain from damage and increase memory and
concentration.

** SPIRITUAL & EMOTIONAL ASPECT OF HEALTH**

"Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your
frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not
with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for
you to do."

– Pope John XXIII

NO FRILLS DENTIST APPOINTMENT
From http://www.funnymail.com

The Cohens were shown into the dentist’s office, where Mr. Cohen made it
clear he was in a big hurry.

"No fancy stuff, Doctor," he ordered, "No gas or needles or any of that
stuff. Just pull the tooth and get it over with."

"I wish more of my patients were as stoic as you," said the dentist
admiringly. "Now, which tooth is it?"
