Urgent Action Required

According to sources, the pharmaceutical company Medicure Pharma wants sole use of P5P and so has petitioned the FDA to ban its use as a supplement.

P5P has been used for years as the necessary form of B6 to ensure proper enzymatic function to assimilate and deliver amino acids, especially for the elderly. It has been sold for many years in health food and vitamin stores.

Garden of Life offers Wobenzyme

Garden of Life has recently added Germany's number one selling nutritional enzyme system to their product line! Wobenzym is a wonderful anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving and immune building supplement made with a unique blend of specific enzymes.

Taken on an empty stomach, proteolytic enzymes directly stimulate the activity of immune competent cells while food based enzymes like bromelain and papain act like a biological vacuum cleaner to rid the body of circulating immune complexes and other harmful proteins that can lodge into joints and cause painful inflammation.

When taken with food, Wobenzym can also increase the digestion, enhance metabolism, and help your cells to use up stored fat as energy!

Thompson Vitamins- Super Savings!- Top Quality

Thompson is well known brand from the 1960’s to the 1980’s. Then it seemed to fade from view after it appeared in the mass market. Bought and sold over time, it was fortunate to being revived by our friends at Nutraceuticals offering prices rarely seen today with high quality. Maybe in the 1960's you saw these prices, and here they are now!

Here we have an answer to stretching incomes with great value, good basic formulas and high quality!

The Marvels of MSM (reprint 4/25/2010 SF Examiner)

Sometimes high dosage of a nutrient can be extraordinary. That is revealed with MSM, methylsulfonylmethane, a natural form of organic sulfur found in all living organisms. We obtain it in certain foods such as cruciferous vegetables, seafood, fruit, milk and meat. Sulfur is vital to health.

Dietary supplementation can begin at 250mg and reach as high 6000 mg. One would think there would be toxicity present at such high levels. However, even at such high amounts it remains so low in toxicity that MSM is compared to water.

The research of Stanley W. Jacob, MD and Robert Herschler of the Department of Surgery, Oregon health Sciences University, who discovered MSM, found it clinically aided relief of allergies, parasitic conditions and even snoring while helping lung function and elimination.

Further research indicates many other applications such as protection against skin conditions like psoriasis, wounds, rosacea, sunburn and even tinnitus (ringing in the ears).

What has made MSM most popular is its effectiveness in helping arthritis sufferers by reducing pain, helping connective tissue and aiding flexibility as found by Lawrence, R.  Methylsulfonylmethane (M.S.M.).  A double-blind study of its use in degenerative arthritis.  International Journal of Anti-Aging Medicine.  1(1):50, 1998. Frequently one finds MSM in formulas combined with the popular glucosamine and chondroitin for joint health.

Other researchers report benefits for helping hair and nail growth and skin elasticity to eliminating leg cramps, and helping Carpal Tunnel Syndrome as reported by Jacob Stanley in his book, The Miracle of MSM, Berkeley Books 1999.

MSM is part of the molecular structure of the sulfur bearing amino acids methionine, cysteine and taurine. It is needed also in the production of coenzyme A for energy production and the production of the important antioxidant glutathione.

MSM Health benefits begin to be noticed after several days of use and most researchers recommend doses of 250 - 750 mg per day. It also comes in powder form, easily dissolves in water and is near tasteless. M.L.
