Plenty of Protein: by Darlyn Britt The Why and the HowM ost people think of meat when you talk about getting adequate protein. After all, advertisers spend millions telling us which meat is for dinner, and what the other white meat is. And chicken nuggets have become their own food group, right? Well, meat does provide a good source ofprotein, and we all need protein in our diets. Protein is a building block of many parts of our bodies: muscle tissue, hair, skin, nails, blood, hormones andenzymes to name a few. Anytime you exercise, you break down muscle tissue, which needs to be rebuilt.Dietary protein helps with that process. Additionally, muscle mass powers the body’s metabolism, or therate at which your body burns calories for energy. Increasing dietary protein can help build lean muscle massand thereby promote an increase in metabolic rate, which can lead to greater fat burning and fat loss. Protein is composed of amino acids. The body cannot store amino acids or protein, so we need to getthis nutrient from the diet on a regular basis for ongoing health and body structure. Pregnant and nursingwomen require extra protein in their diets to support the growth and nourishment of their babies.Adolescents also need about as much protein as full-grown adults. Protein is readily available from animal sources, including meat, eggs and, to a lesser extent, dairy products.But some people do not like animal protein or the cardiovascular risks associated with the consumption ofmeat and dairy products. Fortunately, protein is also found in foods such as legumes (peas, beans, peanuts,etc.), seeds, unrefined grains and certain vegetables. It is even found in some algae. Nature’s Sunshine offers three tasty, nutritious choices for getting more protein into your diet withoutcompromise. Get ample protein in your diet in one of three delicious ways, with NSP protein products! SynerProTein® SynerProTein powder features protein from non-GMO soybeans for a low-fat, balanced protein supplement. It provides essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals and a great vanilla flavor. One serving provides 20 grams of soy protein. Soy is renowned for its support of the cardiovascular and female endocrine systems. In fact, diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 25 grams of soy protein per day may reduce the risk of heart disease. SynerProTein also contains a base of rich and wholesome fruits and cruciferous vegetables, including broccoli, carrot, red beet, rosemary, tomato, turmeric, cabbage, grapefruit and more.
NEW! Love and Peas Love and Peas is a blend of pea protein powder from split yellow peas with a host of other nourishing whole foods. Pea protein offers a natural, plant-based protein source. It also supports the urinary system and helps to maintain blood pressure levels already within the normal range. NSP Love and Peas contains no common allergens, dairy, lactose or gluten. It is Vegan-Certified. Each serving of Love and Peas provides 20 grams of pea protein isolate, 1 gram prebiotic fiber (short-chain fructo-oligosaccharides) and 3 grams total fiber in a blend of naturally occurring amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, plus beneficial fats from flax seed and borage oil. Love and Peas has a wonderful vanilla flavor. Nutri-Burn® Nutri-Burn lactose-free protein drink mix supplies pure whey and calcium caseinate protein for a powerful, muscle-building, meal replacement supplement. It provides 25 grams of protein per serving and 60 percent or more of the Daily Value of 14 essential vitamins and minerals. Whey protein releases quickly into the body for fast, efficient muscle building and repair. Calcium caseinate protein offers a sustained release of amino acids and may help curb appetite. Nutri-Burn tastes great with improved chocolate and vanilla flavors. It also contains CLA, l-carnitine, a proteolytic plant enzyme blend (to aid digestion) and green tea extract. These may help enhance lean muscle mass, help boost energy levels and increase fat burning.Stock No. Product Direct Cost QV Points Mem. to Mem. Sugg.

A Closer Look at Fats The Good, the Bad and the Essential by Courtney Hammond Fats can strike fear in anyone on a weight-management plan, and for good reason. The wrong kind of fats can certainly derail your best plans, not to mention wreak havoc on your heart and cholesterol levels. Yet, other fats actually help your brain and heart functions.

Winterize Your Home and Your Health It’s time to winterize your home to protect against the onslaught of cold weather—and the immune challenges that come with it. The Boomerang will help you winterize your home and your health. The Boomerang Air Surface Sanitizer promotes better health with its Photo Catalytic Oxidation (or PCO) cell. It kills airborne microbes and neutralizes pollen and particulates, making the air you breathe cleaner and less harmful. The PCO cell contains nano-sized metals—silver, nickel, rhodium, copper and titanium—that react with photons from ultraviolet (UV) light to create millions of redundant oxidizers. These create a barrier of protection by killing or neutralizing airborne organisms, removing them from the air you breathe. The Boomerang covers up to 2,000 square feet of open living space and requires no cleaning or filter replacement. Try these NSP immune boosters for extra support this winter. Stay healthy with an adequate supply of minerals. Ionic Minerals contains 70 charged trace minerals that are easily and quickly absorbed into the cells that line the intestinal tract and readily used in the body. Seasonal Defense provides an immune-boosting blend of andrographis, synephrine, thyme, oregano and eleuthero root. Silver Shield provides 18 ppm of silver that stays suspended in purified, deionized water. Trust NSP to provide the highest-quality, safest products available. Immune Stimulator’s natural ingredients are known to support and boost the immune system. It contains beta- glucans, arabinogalactan, colostrum, reishi mushroom, maitake mushroom and cordyceps.
