New Krill Oil A Whale of a Product for Circulatory Support At Leaders Conference in February, NSP introduced new Krill Oil. Krill are tiny crustaceans that provide a critical food source for whales, penguins and other ocean animals. They naturally contain highly bioavailable omega-3 fatty acids, which support cardiovascular, brain and structural system health. Krill oil also provides phospholipids, which bind to the omega-3s, allowing for better absorption and utilization in the body. These phospholipids are an essential component of all cell membranes, keeping toxins out and letting nutrients and oxygen in. Krill oil also contains natural astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant. And we’ve added vitamin K2 to this formula for its cardiovascular benefits. Take one capsule with a meal one or two times daily for circulatory, joint and brain support. Stock Direct QV Mem. to Sugg.

The Digestive System: Giving Us the Energy to Go on The process of digestion begins in the mouth and is completed in the large intestine. It occurs as food is taken in, broken down, sorted and re-processed—all in an effort to convert it into a usable, absorbable form that can be circulated throughout the body to nourish cells and create energy. The major organs of the digestive system include the mouth, esophagus, stomach, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, small intestine and colon. Each of these organs works in a unique way, but they share a common purpose: to help digest food and absorb nutrients. These exist in the form of carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Each nutrient type is handled by the digestive system differently, and each gets broken down at a different point during the digestive process; but all are aided by the presence of enzymes. Digestive enzymes are organic substances that speed up the chemical reactions that break food down into smaller, more usable particles. Without enzymes, body functions would happen too slowly to sustain life. Some enzymes are produced by the body, and others come from the foods we eat. This system is subject to many weaknesses and inadequacies. A Lot to Digest These include digestive transit times that may be too fast or too Did you know? Each slow, a lack of sufficient enzymes and probiotics, and a deficiency day, your digestive system of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. Luckily, we can combat these processes approximately through diet, exercise, adequate water and fiber intake, regular detoxification and supplementation. 2.5 gallons of food, liquids Since there are more organs in your digestive system than in any and bodily secretions! other, it makes sense to support them with quality supplements.

The Hepatic System:Love Your Liver The liver plays vital roles in digestion, metabolism and the elimination of toxins from the body. Our largest organ produces bile to aid in the digestion of fats. Bile also helps eliminate excess cholesterol and toxins. The liver stores and processes nutrients, including excess carbohydrates (as glycogen). When blood sugar levels drop, sugar is released by the liver to bring levels back up. Your liver also makes cholesterol to transport fats to and from body cells. The liver is the primary detoxification center, breaking down metabolic waste and environmental toxins so they can be eliminated. As it filters the blood (over a liter of it each minute), the liver removes toxins and microbes from the body before they can damage cells. Chemicals in the body attach to cholesterol and are transported to the liver. Toxins are then eliminated through normal waste-removal channels. A healthy liver can process heavy metals, cleaning solvents, gasoline fumes and toxic household cleaning products. But these can severely tax or overwhelm a dysfunctional liver. The Hepatic Pack includes one bottle each of these products: Milk Thistle Combination boasts liver-protecting and free-radical Did You Know? fighting ingredients, including milk thistle seed extract, N-Acetyl-Cysteine • he liver affects nearly every T (NAC), dandelion root, choline bitartrate and inositol.

The Immune System:The War against Germs The body’s immune system is made up of lymph nodes, antibodies and specialized white blood cells, as well as the organs that produce these cells and the lymphatic vessels that transport them. Together, they act as an army—ready to fend off attacking microorganisms and invading pollutants. We may not even be aware of it, but our immune system is hard at work daily— protecting us from billions of foreign invaders anxious to wage war on our bodies. Our lymph nodes produce and house the “soldiers,” or immune cells, that defend the body. As lymph fluid passes through the lymph nodes, invading organisms are filtered out and destroyed. As the lymph fluid exits the lymph nodes, it picks up fresh immune cells that can be circulated throughout the body to where they are needed most via a network of lymph vessels. This elegant and efficient system of defending against unwanted invaders is truly amazing, but it requires care. The immune system can be likened to a bank account. Each day, we have the option to make deposits or withdrawals to this “account” based on our choices. Factors that can either deplete or fill this immunity account include stress management, food choices, sleep habits, water intake, mental attitudes, exercise and exposure to toxins. While making healthy diet and lifestyle choices is a surefire way to fortify the immune system, our imperfect diets can’t always supply every nutrient we need. Adding quality immune- boosting supplements can help. NSP’s Immune Pack combines three key products that make getting adequate daily immune support simple. The Immune Pack includes one bottle each of the following: Silver Shield with Aqua Sol® Technology provides 18 ppm of silver that stays suspended in purified, deionized water. Just one teaspoonful provides 90 mcg of pure silver without heavy metal contamination for powerful immune system support.

The Urinary System:Your Body’s Clean Team The urinary system’s anatomy includes two kidneys, two ureters, the bladder, sphincter muscles and the urethra. The ureters connect the kidneys to the bladder. The bladder then connects to the urethra, which ultimately leads to an opening out of the body. The sphincter muscles are located where the bladder meets the urethra, and either tighten to prevent urine from leaking, or relax to allow urine into the urethra. The kidneys filter and purify the blood. Think of them as your body’s janitorial staff! Each kidney is composed of approximately one million microscopic filters, called nephrons, which absorb nutrients and then eliminate waste and toxins as blood circulates through the kidneys. The kidneys also help regulate body fluids— including the amount, pH balance and consistency of these fluids. Healthy cells need the proper concentration of salts and minerals, including potassium and sodium. The kidneys work constantly to maintain this ideal balance. The urinary system performs a delicate daily balancing act, leveling body fluids and filtering impurities. We can do much to help keep it performing—including sustaining a healthy lifestyle, eating plenty of raw foods, drinking adequate amounts of pure water each day and supplementing with quality products. The Urinary Pack from Nature’s Sunshine includes four key products designed to Eat, Drink and Be Wary assist and enhance urinary system function.
