Bowel Build – A process of elimination!  This very popular Key Product is a unique formula of vitamins, mineral and herbs to maintain a healthy intestinal and digestive system. This clever combination provides elements that encourage the proper flow of waste, with added ingredients for a soothing effect on the digestive system.

BENEFITS OF BOWEL BUILD

  • Bowel Build is the Key System Product for the intestinal system, and contains key nutrients and plant extracts perfectly balanced for the healthy digestive system.
  • Many health experts agree that the cause of most chronic health concerns is a toxic colon
  • Bowel Build supplies enzymes and vitamins formulated for the healthy digestive system
  • This formula provides betaine HCl to aid digestion in the upper gastrointestinal tract
  • Contains Psyllium Hulls and Chlorophyll to provide fibre and bulk, which in turn encourages the proper flow of waste
  • Althea and Ginger have been added for a soothing effect on the digestive system

Allergy Warning – contains Psyllium.
Not suitable for use during pregnancy.

Do not exceed the stated recommended daily dosage.
Food  Supplements should not be used as a substitute for a balanced diet.
Always consult your Doctor or Pharmacist before taking food supplements, when you are on prescribed medication.

THE INTESTINAL SYSTEM

  • The intestinal system eliminates solid waste products from the body and reabsorbs water. It is composed of the colon, also known as the large intestine, the small intestine or lower bowel, and the rectum.
  • The process of elimination takes anywhere from 12 to 24 hours or longer, and generally, the shorter the time, the better. Unfortunately, modern diets and health habits sometimes result in greatly increased transit times.
  • As transit time increases, the stool becomes increasingly hardened and difficult to pass due to dehydration. Moreover, as the body reabsorbs the fluid content of the faeces, it also absorbs many soluble toxins.

MAINTAINING REGULAR FUNCTION

  • The colon works best when it is moderately full, and dietary fibre fills this need. Although it contains no nutrients, fibre helps maintain a healthy intestinal system by providing the necessary bulk to encourage timely movement of faecal material through the colon.
  • As this happens, certain toxic materials are removed along with many times the fibre’s weight in water.
  • This is important because it helps maintain bowel regularity and shortens the time toxic materials remain in the body.

Juniper and Parsley

Juniper and Parsley

CLICK ON THE IMAGE FOR MORE INFORMATION

Juniper and Parsley – This is the Key System Product for the Urinary system that has been expertly created with herbs used for thousands of years for the urinary tract. Formulated to give precisely the right ingredients in perfectly balanced amounts, this unique formula is available only from Nature’s Sunshine.

BENEFITS OF JUNIPER & PARSLEY COMBINATION

  • Juniper & Parsley Combination is the Key System Product designed for the bladder and urinary system
  • This formula contains herbs used for thousands of years for the urinary tract
  • Specially formulated for the urinary tract, bladder and kidneys and nourishes the urinary tract
  • This unique combination contains Juniper Berries.  Berries contain resin, tannins, vitamin C, B vitamins, phosphorus, sodium, selenium and zinc
  • This combination is an herbal source of iron, manganese, potassium, sodium, vitamin A and riboflavin.

Do not take if pregnant or likely to become pregnant. Do not exceed the stated recommended daily dosage.

THE URINARY SYSTEM

  • The function of the urinary system is to produce and remove a waste product called urine, and to regulate the amount, alkalinity or acidity, and consistency of body fluids.
  • Kidneys are designed to keep the blood clean. They spend every minute of the day filtering out impurities. However, like any intricate structure, they have limitations.
  • Drinking water frequently during the day can alleviate some potential problems by helping the kidneys flush toxins from the body.
  • The kidneys are the major regulating mechanism for maintaining proper balance, and amongst the important substances the kidneys help to control are sodium, potassium, chloride, bicarbonate, pH, calcium, phosphate, and magnesium.

SPECIALLY FORMULATED FOR URINARY HEALTH

  • Healthy cells need the proper concentration of salts. That’s why potassium and sodium are essential to the body’s fluid balance.
  • When the kidneys are not working properly, waste products and fluid can build up. This can lead to serious health threatening conditions.
  • Since food processing lowers the potassium content of foods, we should try to include plenty of fresh, whole foods in our diets.
  • Herbal supplements, vitamins and minerals can also help provide the urinary system with the nutrients it needs.

Skeletal Strength – healthy bones

Skeletal strength

 

Skeletal Strength – healthy bones. The structural system is the framework for your body. This Key System product provides a unique and comprehensive blend of nutrients the body uses to manufacture bones and muscles, and to fight the forces that deplete the structural system of strength and flexibility.
BENEFITS OF SKELETAL STRENGTH

  • Skeletal Strength is the Key System Product designed specifically for the structural system
  • This unique combination provides Calcium, which is needed for the maintenance of normal bones and teeth, and contributes to normal muscle function and energy yielding metabolism.
  • Vitamin A, helps to maintain the normal function of the immune system, and the maintenance of normal skin, mucous membranes and vision. It also contributes to normal iron metabolism.
  • Vitamin C which is used for normal collagen formation and for the normal functioning of the bones, cartilage, teeth and skin. This well known antioxidant vitamin also contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress, and helps to reduce tiredness and fatigue.

          Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

THE STRUCTURAL SYSTEM

  • The structural system provides a framework for the body consisting of bones, muscles, skin, membranes and connective tissues, collectively giving the body form, mobility and protection.
  • Although bones generally stop growing in length during mid-teens for girls and at around age 20 for boys, they never really stop the growing process, because they are constantly rebuilding themselves. To sustain this growth, the body must have sufficient supplies of certain nutrients including calcium, phosphorus and vitamin D.
  • If there is a shortage of calcium in the bloodstream, the body will remove it from the bones without replacing it. This can eventually cause bones to become weak and porous. Unchecked, this can lead to a condition known as osteoporosis.
  • When approaching menopause the rate of bone loss accelerates greatly, partly because of a decreased secretion of the hormone oestrogen, which helps maintain bone mass.
  • Men can also be affected, although the number of men experiencing serious bone loss is only about one fifth that of women.

COMPLETE NUTRITION FOR BONES AND MUSCLES

  • Regular, lifelong activity is essential to keeping bones and muscles functioning optimally.
  • Diet is also extremely important, and a shortage of calcium over an extended period of time can spell disaster. In fact, a loss of calcium is a most serious nutritional problem.
  • Nature’s Sunshine’s Skeletal Strength provides nutrients the body uses to manufacture bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and skin.
  • These nutrients counteract many of the forces that deplete the structural system of strength and flexibility under mechanical stress and the ability to replenish the blood supply.

Nutri-Calm

Nutri Calm

CLICK ON THE IMAGE FOR MORE INFORMATION

Nutri-Calm is a Key System Product designed to support a healthy nervous system during times of pressure, and for physically stressful conditions that can deplete the body of B-vitamins, helping you to stay soothed and settled.

One of Nature’s Sunshine’s Best Sellers, Nutri-Calm is a powerful formula that includes Vitamin C and a range of B-Complex vitamins with added chamomile.

THE NERVOUS SYSTEM

  • All of our senses – vision, hearing, smell, taste and touch – are a vital part of the nervous system network.
  • In addition to influencing the physical functions of our body, the nervous system also influences how we act or react to demanding situations.
  • Stress is a factor in every life, and the degree to which it affects us negatively is largely determined by how we react to the stresses around us. Prolonged emotional stress can lead to a breakdown of health.
  • Stress can also increase the need for certain nutrients, since it alters our metabolic process.
  • During times of pressure, the nervous system uses extra B-complex vitamins and vitamin C. B-Complex vitamins are in high demand within the body, but they are often lost in the refining and cooking process of most foods, and can be easily washed from the body.
  • Physically stressful conditions can also deplete the body of B vitamins.

CALMLY FACING LIFE’S CHALLENGES

  • Nutri-Calm is the Key System Product designed for the nervous system and is specially formulated to provide plentiful levels of Vitamin C and B-Complex Vitamins, which helps maintain a healthy nervous system, along with the herb chamomile.
  • Nutri-Calm contains Biotin, which maintains the normal functioning of the body’s organ tissues and systems, particularly in old age, is necessary to maintain energy and vitality, and is recommended in periods of intense fatigue and during recovery.
  • B-complex and C vitamins are the core of all vitamin supplements which help maintain healthy nervous systems.

THE CIRCULATORY SYSTEM

  • The heart is an amazing organ that pumps the equivalent of 2,000 gallons of blood through its chambers each day.
  • Blood carries nutrients and oxygen to every cell in the body. Simultaneously it picks up carbon dioxide and other waste material produced by the cells and carries them away for removal from the body.
  • We must take proper care of our circulatory system so that it does not become clogged or restricted in its natural flow.
  • Being overweight and smoking are just two of the many factors that put this system under stress.

MORE THAN JUST A MULTI VITAMIN

  • The circulatory system is an incredible network of around 60,000 miles of blood vessels, all powered by the heart.
  • For the circulatory system to function properly the heart must be strong, the vessels capable of safely transporting optimal amounts of blood, and the blood itself must be healthy.
  • Health problems can arise when these systems are not healthy. Three major factors that contribute to circulatory problems are hypertension (high blood pressure), high levels of triglycerides and cholesterol in the bloodstream, and smoking.
  • Other factors include obesity, heredity and emotional stress.
  • Mega-Chel includes Vitamins A, C and E along with the trace mineral selenium, these help to prevent important molecules and structures within the cell from reacting with oxygen, which often injures the cell structure.

Weight maintenance – Waxing Moon

waxing-moon cycle

The Waxing moon phase (21st June 2015) is when the cravings for food increase.  So weight maintenance in this phase can be challenging but this is when water is your best friend, it is the hardest phase to work with, but it is only for 26 hours so turn to water when you get strong cravings for anything, or eat a handful of raw almonds which will take away the craving, if you have sugar cravings it is often because you are low on protein, so add some protein powder to your juices. (also available in VANILLA)

26 HOUR CARDINAL RULES 

You can choose just ONE of the following options throughout this 26 hour phase

Fruits – Remember that most fruits are available the whole year round these days, so it is pretty easy to get a full range into your diet. Now remember to ensure that you have five portions, these can be spread out throughout the day, or you can eat the potions in one go.

Salads: you can use any of the following:  Celery, peppers, radishes, tomatoes, lettuce, watercress, rocket, carrots, cucumber, dandelion leaves etc. one portion for lunch and one portion for dinner, in the winter you can have steamed veggies (however, as I prefer raw food I would continue with salads or dehydrated foods which still offer high nutrients).

If you require a dressing then you can use 1 tablespoon of Olive oil, or apple cyder vinegar.

You can also use any vegetables or salads and make up a juice using a vitamix or nutri bullet instead.

Vegetables: Any vegetables can be used as a juice or you can eat them raw making raw spaghetti from courgette with other veggies cut or sliced up.  You could also use any combination of raw veggies to make beautiful soup if you have a dehydrator to “warm” it up (again personally I don’t believe in cooking food as it destroys all the good enzymes etc. But you can heat soup up if you prefer, some of the veggies are carrots, kale, courgette, sweet potato, butternut squash, etc. add some herbs to enhance the flavour.

Like any other moon phase it is important to drink plenty of fresh water to assist with the removal of toxins from the body. A good guide line is 8 glasses.  It is important on waxing phase to eat a balanced diet of solid foods regularly throughout the day, so breakfast, mid-morning, lunch, mid-afternoon, dinner.

It is on the waxing moon that you should eat less than you would under any of the other moon cycles, so avoiding all sweets, sugary foods, fats, bread, etc.

There is a rule of thumb to say that you should not eat after 6 p.m. and drinking more fluids in the afternoon, this will help you feel more full before bedtime.

Now remember that each cycle is only for 26 hours.

The best news is that it is NATURAL and your body will assist you to get into the rhythms of the moon phases which will then make it so much easier to achieve the next time you begin the cycle, which is something that you can do every month of the year!

As I have said in the other posts, remember that if you have a medical condition then it is important that you talk with your medical practitioner before changing any aspects of your diet.

You can find products HERE that will assist.

Proactazyme – Digestive health

Proactazyme

Proactazyme – Digestive health.  This is an advanced, full spectrum enzyme supplement, from plant sources, that helps break down food in your stomach, making it easier to digest. Especially useful when you feel uncomfortably full after a meal – keep some handy!

BENEFITS OF PROACTAZYME

  • Proactazyme is the Key System Product for the Digestive System
  • Proactazyme is a full spectrum general purpose enzyme product
  • This formula is scientifically balanced for maximum effectiveness
  • Helps maintain a healthy digestive system
  • Helps the body digest all food types and helps break down difficult to digest foods

(100 capsules per bottle)

Do not exceed the stated recommended daily dosage.

THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM

  • Enzymes are the chemical catalysts that control every function in the body, and without them, body functions would be too slow to sustain life.
  • They are an important part of our food, enabling us to break down proteins, carbohydrates and fats into their raw components that have a wide variety of uses throughout the body.
  • Unfortunately we often destroy enzymes in our food through overcooking, and many of us consume a diet high in refined foods that lack enzymes.
  • Also, as we age, our bodies produce fewer enzymes, and, depending on our dietary choices, we may not get very much benefit from the foods we eat.

GOOD DIGESTION, THE KEY TO GOOD HEALTH

  • When the enzymes that exist naturally in foods are destroyed prior to digestion by heat, storage, wilting or cooking, the body must create new ones before it can properly digest the food.
  • Proactazyme contains plant based food enzymes to break down proteins, carbohydrates, and fats.
  • To make them even more effective, Nature’s Sunshine added plant extracts specifically selected for the digestive system.
  • It’s formulated for everyday use to help you get maximum nutrition from your daily diet.

  • This is a traditional formula used by nutritionists for the respiratory system

Fenugreek & Fennel is also available in an alcohol free liquid extract which is suitable for vegans, and may be used with children aged 6 years and older.

 

THE RESPIRATORY SYSTEM

  • The respiratory system is responsible for supplying oxygen to the blood and expelling waste gases.
  • Without life-giving oxygen, cells cannot utilise the energy resources that are available to them and so cannot function. Without oxygen, body cells start dying within minutes.
  • If the efficiency of the respiratory system begins to diminish, any energy stored in the body has to be released at a slower rate.
  • Since oxygen is so vital to the energy needs of the body, it is essential that we maintain healthy lungs by breathing unpolluted air as much as possible and by supplying the body with good nutrition.

 

BALANCED NUTRITION FOR A HEALTHY RESPIRATORY SYSTEM

  • The respiratory tract, which is especially vulnerable to particles floating in the air due to pollution, has several ways of dealing with these particles.
  • For example, the cough and the sneeze reflexes keep the passageways of the lungs clear of foreign matter.
  • The hairs in the nose trap irritants, contaminants, bacteria, viruses, fungi, vehicle exhaust fumes and other materials.
  • But not all particles are trapped here. If particles are trapped further down in the tract, bronchitis and other breathing difficulties may result.

Master Gland Formula

Master Gland Formula

CLICK ON THE IMAGE FOR MORE INFORMATION

Master Gland Formula – A Key System Product that contains a full complement of essential vitamins and minerals including antioxidant vitamins A, C and E, combined with specific herbs that are rich in easily absorbed trace minerals, to supply the glands with nutrients. Vitamin C contributes towards a reduction in tiredness and fatigue.
BENEFITS OF MASTER GLAND FORMULA

  • Master Gland is the Key System Product designed specifically for the glandular system
  • Contains Vitamin A, which contributes to the normal function of the immune system, and the maintenance of normal skin, mucous membranes and vision
  • Contains Vitamin C, which contributes towards a reduction in tiredness and fatigue and the normal functioning of the immune and nervous system. It is used in the protection of cells from oxidative stress, normal collagen formation and increases iron absorption

  • Contains Pantothenic Acid that contributes to normal mental performance and energy yielding metabolism

Do not take if pregnant or likely to become pregnant. Do not exceed the stated recommended daily dosage.  Contains ingredients derived from soya beans.

THE GLANDULAR SYSTEM

  • The glandular and nervous systems work together to regulate all of the body’s processes, including growth, metabolism, digestion, elimination, menstruation and sleep.
  • The glandular (endocrine) system communicates using chemical messengers called hormones that stimulate reactions that may last from a few hours to several days.
  • The endocrine system functions best when it has ample stores of minerals, particularly trace minerals.
  • For example, the thyroid gland maintains proper metabolic rates and levels of body fluids when it has ample iodine.
  • Similarly, the pancreas, which controls blood sugar levels, needs chromium.
  • Eating foods rich in trace minerals helps support the body’s glandular functions, but unfortunately, many foods that are a mainstay of the modern diet are low in trace minerals.

FINDING YOUR NATURAL BALANCE

  • Eating foods rich in trace minerals helps support the body’s glandular functions, but unfortunately, many foods that are a mainstay of the modern diet are low in trace minerals.
  • This is due in part to the depletion of soil and the effects of processing.
  • For example, raw sugar loses 94% of its chromium and 89% of its manganese during processing. Likewise, as wheat is processed into white flour, it loses 50% of its chromium and 86% of its manganese.
  • Nutritional supplements rich in trace minerals, when taken with a well-balanced diet, help ensure the endocrine system gets the nutritional elements it needs to function properly.
  • Master Gland’s unique formula contains a full complement of nutrients that can be easily assimilated by the body, and provides targeted nutrients to nourish the body.
  • It provides essential vitamins and minerals, combined with specific herbs which are rich in easily absorbed trace minerals, to supply the glands with nutrients.
