Renew Life Cleansing Products

Our bodies were designed with 7 channels of elimination (Lungs, Liver, Skin, Kidneys, Colon, Lymph, and Blood). Providing nutritional formulas that support our cleansing channels just makes sense. The Complete Cleansing Program is designed to nutritionally assist your body. Each step in the program is designed to provide additional total and targeted support.

CleanseSMART™ combines 23 natural ingredients, which provide support for the body’s cleansing processes‡. The Morning Formula is a 15 herb organ detox formula and provides seven herbs to help detoxify the liver. The evening formula contains 8 natural ingredients that help to cleanse the colon. CleanseSMART™ is easy to take, just 2 capsules in the morning and 2 capsules in the evening.

ParaGONE™ is a blend of herbs and natural compounds that help to maintain a healthy balance of intestinal flora. Recent findings of parasitologists and medical doctors indicate that at least 25% of all Americans are infected with parasites and 37% have candida yeast overgrowth.

Some of the common causes of parasites are:

  • Food is often inadequately prepared or eaten raw. Eating undercooked meats, unclean vegetables and fruits, and raw foods like sushi can result in parasite infestations.
  • Water is a primary source of parasite infections. Even filtered water can contain microorganisms such as giardia or cryptosporidium that can cause serious health problems.
  • Pets can often be carriers of parasites.
  • Travel outside the United States can expose one to parasites.

Some of the common causes of candida are:

  • Repeated antibiotic use can destroy intestinal flora balance, resulting in candida yeast overgrowth.
  • Sugar and carbohydrate overconsumption can cause yeast overgrowth.
  • Birth control pills and cortisone drugs commonly cause candida overgrowth as a side effect.

Bioplasma from Hyland's

Always on the search for products that improve their performance and their health, athletes sometimes miss the opportunity to consider fitness at a cellular level. We can introduce this concept through the simple idea of cellular fitness by replenishing minerals that feed the building blocks of our bodies.

  • is made naturally and entirely in the USA
  • is the #1 choice remedy of many health counsellors and considered as an excellent entry level product for first-time homeopathic users

Nordic Naturals' Omega Products

Strong science has contributed to healthy gains for the fish oil marketplace as the benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids—maintaining a healthy heart and healthy triglyceride levels—attract more attention in the medical community. In fact, the federal government is in the process of reviewing a health claim that may further expand the fish oil supplement market as a functional food. There is accumulating evidence to demonstrate the importance of Omega-3 fatty acids and their role as an important nutrient in maintaining a well-balanced diet, and an influence in human health.

Nordic Naturals Omega-3 provides an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids in their naturally existing ratios. Omega-3 fatty acids are needed daily, and must be obtained from our diet. Nordic Naturals Omega-3 is a great tasting, fresh, and pure source of omega-3s and vitamin E. Omega-3s support proper cellular flexibility and cardiovascular health. Available in 60 Softgel and 120 Softgel sizes.

Nordic Naturals Complete Omega-3.6.9 delivers EPA and DHA from fish oil and GLA from borage oil. Distilled for purity, Complete Omega-3.6.9 is an ideal supplement to ensure adequate intake of essential fatty acids from both fish and plant sources. Rosemary extract has been added for freshness and natural lemon oil for palatability. Available in 60 Softgel and 120 Softgel sizes.

Women's Products from Jarrow

Clinical trials have examined whether probiotics taken orally can influence vaginal floral balance and, likewise, whether all probiotics have such benefits. The answer to the first issue is that, yes, an intake of probiotics as an oral supplement can significantly and beneficially affect the balance of vaginal flora. However, the answer to the second issue is that only certain probiotics can provide this benefit. Direct comparisons have demonstrated that the probiotic species and strains must be carefully selected in order to significantly and beneficially influence vaginal health.

fem-dophilus™ contains two patented and clinically proven probiotic strains, Lactobacillus GR-1™ and Lactobacillus RC-14®, discovered and developed by Dr. Gregor Reid and Dr. Andrew Bruce at Urex Biotech. Over 20 years of research supports the oral use of GR-1™ and RC-14® to colonize and protect the vaginal tract. fem-dophilus™ is manufactured under pharmaceutical GMP conditions with guaranteed potency and consistency. The probiotic strains in fem-dophilus™ are in a proprietary polysaccharide matrix, which protects the bacteria from stomach acid and enhances probiotic bacteria survival to the lower intestine.

EstroG from Jarrow Formulas is the newest entry to the lineup of menopausal support supplements. It comprises standardized extracts of three medicinal herbs (Cynanchum wilfordii, Phlomis umbrosa, Angelica gigas Nakai), which have a history of usage in Eastern medical systems for purifying and tonifying the liver and kidneys, fighting toxins, and strengthening the physique. Modern research has identified additional health benefits for these plants in maintaining healthy cell replication, for immune health, as antioxidants, as neuroprotectants, and as stimulators of growth factors to enhance bone metabolism.

Personal Care Products from NOW®

XyliWhite™ is a remarkable new toothpaste gel from NOW Foods that uses Xylitol, a natural sugar alcohol that looks and tastes similar to conventional sugar with one major exception - it has 40% fewer calories!

In fact, the human body even manufactures its own supply - up to 15 grams, everyday. Xyliwhite™ is an all-natural "refreshmint" toothpaste made from select materials and guaranteed to be of superior quality. Xyliwhite™ toothpaste is completely safe for users of every age.

Lavilin Underarm Deodorant Cream is a unique herbal deodorant free of aluminum and other harsh chemicals, yet so effective, just one application can eliminate perspiration odor for days--without the need to re-apply even after showering.

  • "This is the best deodorant ever, and I mean it. It's totally effective, the only one I've ever found to work for me." - Flora, Seattle, WA
  • "This stuff is awesome!!! When I first get a mini-tub I use it the first couple of days in a row and then I'm good to go for anywhere from 7-14 days! I love not having to deal with deoderant everyday. Plus, no aluminum. The only draw back is it is messy to put it on, especially with long nails (it get up under your nails) but you only have to put it on once a week so it's not that bad:) No sweat either! I love this stuff." - Amy, Shelton, WA
