Nutrient Deficiencies & Stomach Discomfort

MSM  

MSM or Methylsulfonylmethane (pronounced meth'-ul-sul-fo'-nul-meth'-ane) is a naturally occurring organic form of dietary sulfur. Our bodies use MSM on a daily basis for several functions: to maintain the structure of proteins, to protect cells and cell membranes, to replenish the connections between cells throughout the body and to preserve the molecular framework of connective tissue.

NSP MSM offers primary support to the structural and circulatory systems, and studies show that it may offer other health benefits as well. It supports collagen, helps fortify connective tissues and maintains healthy joints. It has also been reported to increase circulation, reduce inflammation and help the body resist toxins, allergens and parasites.* Used in conjunction with HSN-W, MSM promotes smooth skin, improves hair texture and strengthens nails.*

Organic sulfur is the fourth-most abundant mineral found in the human body. It's vital taht we get enough of it daily to replace what we use. Our diets can provide some MSM as it is found in many raw foods-fresh milk, fresh fruit, raw vegetables, fish and other meat. But it's easily destroyed by food processing and cooking, and most people do not get enough to give their bodies the support they need.

Nature's Sunshine has made it easier for you to get the MSM you need on a daily basis by harnessing it and putting it into a convenient tablet. One bottle of MSM contains 90 tablets. Take three tablets twice daily with a meal to supply your body with the recommended 4.5 g per day. For best results, add Vitamin C/Citrus Bioflavonoids, or Timed-Release Vitamin C, to your MSM regimen. Stock #4059-4 90 tabs.

Fibro Malic (Magnesium malate)
Millions of Americans suffer from chronic muscle soreness, stiffness and fatigue. If the body is deficient in energy-producing fuel, it breaks down muscle protein to create energy. This process may cause pain, fatigue and other problems. Researchers have recently found that many people with these signs of discomfort respond to supplements containing malic acid and magnesium.*

Malic acid is found naturally in high concentrations in apples and other fruits and vegetables. Along with magnesium, it provides fuel that generates energy to operate the body.

Dr. Alvin Segelman's suggested daily regimen for chronic muscle fatigue:


  • 2 capsules of Fibro Malic twice daily
  • 1 Capsule of St. John's Wort three times daily
  • 2-4 capsules of Flax Seed Oil daily
  • 6 capsules of Lecithin daily
  • Super Supplemental as directed

Nature's Sunshine has combined these two nutrients in a product called Fibro Malic, which helps support especially the muscles. In addition to its role in producing energy for the cells, magnesium is used daily to help with the absorption of several vitamins and minerals, to promote bone strength and to regulate nerve impulses.

Each bottle of NSP Fibro Malic contains 90 capsules. For optimum results, we recommend you take two capsules twice daily with a meal. And since people with this type of structural system concern often suffer from less-than-optimal mood, we suggest you also include one capsule of NSP St. John's Wort three times daily. Stock# 4061-6

GreenZone
Green foods have long been recognized for their amazing nutritive value. NSP is very pleased to offer a specially formulated green food drink mix that supports both the nutritional needs of the body and the immune system.

GreenZone is a whole food, meaning its ingredients are pure, unprocessed and natural. The inherent goodness Mother Nature put into these ingredients has been carefully maintained.

GreenZone also provides balanced nutrition. The 40-30-30 principle has received a lot of attention recently. This theory asserts that the body best utilizes food in the ratio of 40 percent of calories coming from carbohydrates, 30 percent from proteins and 30 percent from fat. NSP formulated GreenZone using this principle to help maximize the fat-burning and energy-releasing mechanisms of the body.

GreenZone Contains:

These nutrients plus a host of other beneficial herbs and supplements, including alfalfa, apple pectin, brown rice, chlorella, rhododendron root, sodium copper chlorophyllin, bee pollen, milk thistle, grape skin extract and many others make GreenZone the most complete nutritional green drink on the market.

Stir 1 rounded tablespoon of GreenZone powder into 6-8 ounces of pure water or juice and drink. Take one serving daily for the first three days, then increase to two or three servings daily as desired. Stock# 1095-4

Stomach-Comfort
More than one-third of the population experiences heartburn at least once a month, and approximately one in 14 people experiences heartburn daily. Many of us may suffer from occasional upset stomach or acid reflux (stomach acid that backwashes into the esophagus via the lower esophageal sphincter).

To help in these times of uneasiness, NSP created Stomach-Comfort. Stomach-Comfort is a combination of natural ingredients that helps nutritionally support digestion.* It contains calcium carbonate, alginic acid (from kelp), wintergreen oil, papaya fruit, slippery elm bark, licorice root concentrate and ginger. If you're no stranger to natural health, you're probably familiar with most all of these ingredients. Calcium carbonate is alkaline in nature and may help neutralize stomach acid. Alginic acid is converted to sodium alginate, which helps support the mucus lining of the esophagus against acid irritation. This product does not contain aluminum.

Stomach-Comfort may help normal body processes in soothing a burning sensation in the stomach or an uncomfortable acidic taste in the throat or mouth.* These problems are often triggered by certain foods like alcohol, caffeine, chocolate, high-fat meals, orange juice and tomato juice, which, when eliminated from the diet, may reduce discomfort.

One bottle of Stomach-Comfort contains 60 tablets. Chew two tablets when you need digestive support. Remember, digestive concerns can be a sign of more serious health needs. Use Stomach-Comfort only for quick, temporary relief. Work with your health professional to help determine the underlying cause of your discomfort and any other appropriate action needed, such as using NSP's Herbal H-p Fighter.
