New Chapter WholemegaThis month, the company New Chapter, founded in 1982 by Paul and Barbi Schulick, brings us a new fish oil product called Wholemega. This certified organic manufacturer of dietary supplements turns its expertise on fish oils, and the family of healthy omegas, including Omega 3's, 5, 6's, 7 and 9's, that are so necessary for nourishment of the brain, heart, eye and kidney tissues. They also brought us Zyflamend and Host Defense, both are on very special pricing! 

Don’t Forget Ginkgo

The American Botanical Council reports: “In Germany Ginkgo is an approved therapy for the treatment of memory loss in conditions such as Alzheimer’s, ringing in the ears, dizziness, and poor circulation in the lower legs resulting in pain during walking (intermittent claudication.)”

Also, ginkgo aids in the “control of acute symptoms of altitude sickness and vascular reactivity to cold exposure, protective action in hypoxia (insufficient oxygen in the body); acute deafness related to the cochlea (part of the inner ear).”

It should not be used before elective surgery or persons with a bleeding disorder. It is important to check with your health provider when taking pharmaceutical drugs along with ginkgo.*

Feel the Difference with Octacosanol, Glucosamine and Salmon Oil

Pain Free Energy

It is wonderful to know you can affect your health dramatically by taking supplements. Octacosanol is a remarkable substance found in wheat germ oil that at first you may not feel, but the longer you take it the more energy you experience to the point that when you see a set of stairs you just have to run up them! This is why athletes have used octacosanol for years to improve their strength, reaction time and endurance. It's exact mechanism of action is still unknown. Some evidence suggests it works to improve the transmission of nerve impulses.

Glucosamine helps to create cushioning fluids and tissues around joints. It aids the repair of arthritic joints, helps to reduce pain and builds synovial fluids. It's also an aid for inflamed discs and sciatica. It is necessary in the formation of skin, eyes, bones, tendon, nails, ligaments, and parts of the heart. It's also necessary in the production of mucous as a protective coating in the urinary, digestive, and respiratory tracts.

Salmon oil is composed of Omega 3- EPA and DHA, and other important fatty acids. It lowers triglycerides (where inflammation occurs), and cholesterol. It also aids circulation, helps to prevent blood clots, and helps arthritic conditions. The EPA helps to regulate cell hormones and helps to protect the body from high blood pressure, edema, and inflammation. DHA is important for vision, hearing, brain function and the reproductive system.
