Probiotics have received a lot of press in recent years. They are featured in yogurts and many other products advertised on television. Nature’s Sunshine Probiotics Eleven stands out from the rest with eleven different strains of probiotics and prebiotics. Most products you have seen advertised mainstream only have one strain of probiotics and no prebiotics at all.
In order to keep the digestive system functioning as it should your body needs good bacteria and other microorganisms. These beneficial flora can be negatively affected by anti-biotics, stress, and aging. Probiotics are used to replenish and encourage the growth of these essential elements.
Not only is digestion boosted by probiotics, the immune system is also made stronger. Toxins that have long set in the system are encouraged to vacate the body through improved digestion resulting in improved bowel regularity and better health. Bloating and abdominal discomfort often disappear when probiotics are used regularly. Sometimes even those pesky extra few pounds vanish!
These are real, living micro-organisms so it is important to keep them refrigerated or frozen. Recommended dosage is between 1 and 2 capsules daily with a meal. After continued use you will be able to determine what works best for your body.
Not only are there multiple, separate strains of probiotics, there are also prebiotics. Prebiotics are non-digestible food particles such as fiber and are in a sense food for the probiotics. Taking prebiotics can make up for a diet that is missing the sufficient amount of fruits and vegetables.
Acidophilus (L. Acidophilus) is the most commonly mentioned probiotics, which is part of this supplement. Additionally there are Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, L. brevis, L. bulgaricus, L. plantarum, Streptococcus thermophiles, B. infantis, B. longum, L. casei, L. salivarius and FOS (short and long chain).
The presence of both short and long chain prebiotics makes this a “full spectrum” supplement. Short chain prebiotics tend to nourish the bacteria on the right side of the colon and longer chains nourish the left. By having both, the entire colon is strengthened and proper mineral absorption is encouraged.
Nature’s Sunshine has a full line of probiotic and prebiotic supplements. Heroes Probiotic Power is digestive support specially designed with children in mind. For adults, also consider the Digestive System Pack or Intestinal System Pack. Both are 30 day packages that make it easy to get your body on the right track.
LBS II stands for “Lower Bowel Stimulant.” Nature’s Sunshine created this product to encourage lazy and irregular systems to get moving again. Unlike laxatives, LBS II is gentle and promotes proper functioning of the bowels instead of just a bowel flush.
An often overlooked element of regularity are the peristaltic muscles. To understand how these muscles work, just imagine an earth worm and how it moves along the ground. The digested food that travels through our body goes through canals that function that same way. If these muscles become weak, waste is not cleansed as it should. Cascara Sagrada or “Sacred Bark” as well as licorice root stimulate these muscles to get them working again.
An herb you don’t hear mentioned often, but is an important part of LBS II, is Couch Grass. Also known as Quackgrass and Witchgrass, it was added to nourish the intestinal system and the urinary system. Additional benefits can include loosening mucous and phlegm and soothing sore throats. The same benefits to the sinuses of dispelling mucous are also experienced in the digestive tract. Toxic waste that has built up for some time can be passed easily and gently.
As the ingredients work together to cleanse your digestive tract, Ginger Root is soothing it. It is also known to be an anti-inflammatory and conditions such as arthritis and other muscle discomfort have been known to ease with its use.
Many of the supplements used in Nature Sunshine’s LBS II are beneficial to more than just the digestive system. Oregon Grape Root supports the liver and gallbladder, but is also is known to fight infections. And since so many conditions stem from liver difficulty, other ailments such as eczema may be relieved.
Any idea what a capsicum fruit is? It’s more familiar name is bell pepper. Bell peppers are rich in antioxidants and highly recommended to prevent cancer. It also fights off food-borne disease and helps circulation. Capsicum fruit also increases the metabolism so there may be an increase in energy and possibly weight loss.
Such an amazing combination of herbs is put together by Nature’s Sunshine, known for producing dependable, high quality herbal supplements. Strict quality control ensures that you receive consistent potency and a reliable nutritional supplement. LBS II can also be found in CleanStart in Wild Berry and Apple/Cinnamon flavors as well as Dieter’s Cleanse and the Tiao He Cleanse. It works very well in combination with Black Walnut, Herbal Pumpkin, and Intestinal Soothe & Build.
Mind-Max capsules from Nature’s Sunshine are a potent brain boost aid. This is mainly due to its primary ingredient, magnesium l-threonate. There seems to be little comparison between it and its naturally occurring counterpart, magnesium. Let’s talk a look shall we?
Firstly, why not just take ordinary magnesium or vitamin C supplements? Well, over the past several decades there has been increasing research into what magnesium does for the body - and the answer is actually quite a bit. It is needed for muscle tissue, for your heart, even for your teeth. You may have heard of buzz words such as electrolyte before. Magnesium is one of them. It is the fourth most abundant mineral to be found in the human body, assuming one is getting their recommended daily amount. However, ordinary magnesium has two fatal flaws, it is in short supply (to be specific, there is a lot of it - but it is hard to utilize) and it doesn’t work as effectively, especially with the brain, as magnesium l-threonate - the primary ingredient in Mind Max capsules. Thus making magnesium l-threonate king.
Magnesium I-threonate is a synthetic, a derivative of vitamin C. Thanks to research done at MIT back in 2010 we now know it is the most efficient form of magnesium to supply the brain with what it needs. It is just as safe as naturally occurring magnesium and its efficacy makes it much more viable to use as a brain boost.
Mind Max is a cognitive synapse booster, that is to say it improves cognition, stamina and recall. In this regard it is miles ahead of ordinary magnesium. It has also been known to aid with hair loss in certain individuals and reduce anxiety in others.
The everyday magnesium you find on the shelves of your grocery store is simply not well absorbed by your system. Magnesium I-threonate crosses the blood brain barrier which aids in far greater absorption. You would have to use 100 times more magnesium to get the same effect as Mind Max.
To begin experiencing the effect, it is recommended to take 3 capsules before breakfast and 3 more at bedtime. Continue for one week and then stop the bedtime dose.
Nature’s Sunshine has a full line of attention and focus boosting supplements. You can find them here and don’t forget to take advantage of our loyalty program when ordering products such as Focus Attention, Brain Protex, and Ginko Biloba.
Put simply, Brain Protex with Huperzine “protects” your brain. With more than 5 million Americans suffering from alzheimer’s disease and others suffering from age related memory loss and dementia, it is more important than ever to take steps to improve brain health.
Brain Protex is designed to protect your body’s most sensitive tissues, the brain mainly, from free radical damage. It seems like we are always hearing about free radicals and their damage these days, but what do we know about them really? The simplified explanation is that free radicals are atoms with an odd number of electrons that cause damage when they react with certain DNA and cellular components. This can lead to increased risk of cancer, heart disease, and, of course, memory problems.
Free radicals can be fought and neutralized with antioxidants. Antioxidants also are known to prevent strokes and to slow the aging process. The herbs contained in Brain Protex are rich in antioxidants and will bolster your mental alertness, staying off age related memory loss.
Nature’s Sunshine looks to herbs found worldwide and used in traditional medicine to bring you the best for your health. Most people have heard about the energy and circulatory boosting benefits of gingko and the heart nourishing nutrient lycopene. But Chinese club moss is not something found in most health supplements.
Chinese club moss is known to have Huperzine as its active ingredient. It has long been used in traditional Chinese medicine, but western medicine is only now beginning to recognize its significance. Clinical trials have shown that there is a great chance that Huperzine can have a positive effect on alzheimer’s and dementia. Many studies have shown an improvement in cognitive function.
A very important element of Brain Protext with Huperzine is the strengthening of capillaries and the blood-brain barrier. It is essential to keep toxins and bacteria out of the brain and central nervous system, weakness of the blood-brain barrier is linked to diseases such as epilepsy and multiple sclerosis.
To prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine, lecithin is included. Acetylcholine is an important neurotransmitter, which basically sends messages in the brain, involved with thought and memory.
It is recommended that 2 capsules of Brain Protex with Huperzine be taken twice a day with a meal. Those interested in nourishing the brain and protecting their memory are also encouraged to take a look at Super Omega-3 EPA, the Nervous System Pack, and Ginkgo Biloba Extra T/R.
Dieter’s Cleanse from Nature’s Sunshine is a great way to turn over a new leaf. In trying to lose weight, it’s important to also not lose all the nutrients your body needs. By detoxifying the digestive tract and eliminating the built up waste, the body will be better able to absorb the good things it has been hungering for. As an effective cleanse, it is also recommended for those that are not dieting.
There is simply not an easier cleanse. The box contains capsule packets for AM to be taken with breakfast, NOON to be taken with lunch, and PM to be taken with dinner. The convenience ensures that you are getting exactly what you need to stay on track for your weight loss. Use each day during the first week of your diet. The 2nd week’s packets can be used at a later time, during a break period from the diet, or you can do 14 days straight.
In the packets are some of Nature’s Sunshine most popular and effective supplements. Bowel Detox is in both the AM and NOON packets. As it cleans the intestinal system, it is also building it up to support proper digestion and strengthen colon tissue. Pancreatin, pepsin, and bile salts allow for more effective digestion of proteins, fats, and other foodstuffs.
Master Gland includes thyme, licorice, dandelion root, kelp, dong quai root, and alfalfa. As part of the AM and NOON packets it will support your hormones by nourishing your thyroid, pancreas, and your adrenal glands. By supporting healthy blood sugar levels and metabolism it will be easier to lose weight and enjoy better health.
Boosting the immune system and cleansing the bowels, liver, lungs, skin, and kidneys is the purpose of Enviro-Detox in the AM and NOON packets. The influx of clean blood your body will receive by all these organs being cleansed at one time gives a feeling of inner freshness. Echinacea helps to rid the body of the toxins as they are released. Fenugreek and marshmallow root loosen intestinal mucus and then eliminate it from the system. Liver Cleanse taken the same time in the MORNING and NOON packets offers even greater support to this important organ and additionally to the gallbladder.
LBS II is Nature’s Sunshine’s popular lower bowel stimulant found in the PM packet. It is widely used because of its natural and gentle laxative qualities. While cleansing the colon of build-up it will provide the nourishment needed to ensure comfortable regularity. Also in the same packet is the SF supplement which helps to manage weight loss through urinary, digestive, and intestinal support.
Rounding out this powerful 14 day Dieter’s Cleanse is Chromium in the PM packet. Chromium is the central atom in the Glucose Tolerance Factor. By cutting down on the body’s need for insulin, healthy blood sugar levels are supported. The liver also need Chromium for proper function and optimum liver filtration.
There is so much contained in this easy cleanse. Instead of purchasing each incredible supplement individually, Nature’s Sunshine has made it as easy as possible to lose weight and get your body functioning at its best.
Chlorophyll has so many benefits that it is widely used for many different purposes. It is the green pigment in plants, sometimes called “the green blood of plants,” and is what makes photosynthesis possible within plants to take the sun’s rays and turn it into energy.
The similarities between chlorophyll and human blood are remarkable. The main difference is that its primary atom is magnesium, whereas in human blood it is iron. This has led to the main use of chlorophyll supplements as a blood cleanser, which detoxifies the entire body.
Used as an overall body cleanser, the results are nothing short of amazing. By ridding the body of toxins, chlorophyll acts as an internal deodorizer. Many find relief from what are even considered to be normal body odors. The intestines and colon are also refreshed, supporting regularity.
Halitosis (bad breath) is most often caused by problems with digestion. As the digestive tract is cleansed and deodorized, bad breath naturally disappears. Since Nature’s Sunshine added spearmint oil to the liquid chlorophyll, gargling and swishing out the mouth will give immediately fresher breath.
With the body being cleansed and beneficial flora supported in the digestive tract, the immune system is boosted. By creating an oxygen rich blood supply and a more alkaline, pH balanced system, disease is more easily resisted. While the body is healed from the inside out, wounds will heal faster and skin disorders have been known to clear up.
Chlorophyll can be particularly useful to women. The need for more oxygenated blood can be supported during the monthly cycle. Regularity is more easily achieved during pregnancy and after childbirth with daily supplementation, often eliminating the need for prescription and over the counter laxatives.
In the battle against cancer, liquid chlorophyll is a mighty preventive measure. Heavy metals and other carcinogens are stripped from the system leaving behind oxygen, making it more difficult for cancer and other diseases to grow. It is also safe to be taken during treatments and in conjunction with special diets.
Nature’s Sunshine offers liquid chlorophyll in 3 varieties. The largest is 32 ounces and the other 2 are both 16 ounces, however one is extra strength.
Love and Peas protein-rich meal replacement will bring the “happiness” with it! Nature’s Sunshine created this vegetable protein blend to give you 20 grams of protein per serving. It is 100% free from common allergens such as wheat, gluten, dairy, and lactose, perfect for those on special diets.

The markings on the side of the cup make it convenient to measure the desired ounces.
Pea protein has alkalinizing effects to balance your body’s pH level and has been shown to support the urinary and circulatory systems. For even more urinary tract support, cranberry powder is included. Through antioxidants, it also provides protection against free radicals. The grape seed extract in Love and Peas also has been known to be rich in antioxidants, support circulation, and even to fight aging.
Through 75% of the daily value of 18 vitamins and minerals such as vitamins A, D, B6, B12, and folic acid many people are deficient in, the body is supported and strengthened. In addition to protein isolate from split yellow peas, there is also protein from brown rice, adzuki bean powder, black bean powder, and garbanzo bean flakes. Flax Seed is also included to provide dietary fiber and essential fatty acids.
Many people enjoy pea protein as opposed to whey protein supplements due to it being much more comfortably digested and having a balanced amino acid profile. With 1 gram prebiotic fiber (short chain fructooligosaccharides), essential bacteria in your colon are nourished and regularity is supported. Prebiotics have shown to reduce the risk of colorectal cancer and inflammatory bowel disorders.
Nature’s Sunshine offers a full line of natural supplements. For even more cell protection and better health, use along with Super Omega-3 EPA. If you are looking for more support for your digestive system, try Bifidophilus Flora Force.
For those that need a good night’s sleep and some much needed relaxation, Nature’s Sunshine offers an easy solution in their vitamin and dietary supplement Nutri-Calm. By providing over 100 percent of the daily needs of important nutrients, and in some cases over 1300%, the nervous system is supported and nerves are soothed.
To replenish nutrients used while the body is stressed, take one capsule with a meal three times a day. The rapid loss of B vitamins can contribute to fatigue, hair loss, and also sets the stage for many diseases. Supporting the nervous system through resupplying the body with doses of B complex vitamins such as thiamin, riboflavin, B6, and B12 at 567% to 1333% of the recommended value, sets the stage for better health.
Valerian root extract is an important element of Nutri-Calm. This herb has been used as an effective sleep aid without the side effects and dependency experienced in other products and helps sleep to feel more restful.
Vitamin C and lemon bioflavonoids provide protection against free radicals with their anti-oxidant power. Their bioactivity boosts your immune system and are even thought to provide strength to the capillaries.
To fall asleep faster, passionflower flower extract has been added. Not only does it help with insomnia, it also eases your nerves, reducing stress and anxiety. Many have found it to also be effective against weight gain. Once asleep, the hopsflowers extract contributes to a deeper sleep, as well as reduced anxiety while awake.

Nature’s Best Health Store is pleased to offer a paw paw twig extract in Nature’s Sunshine Paw Paw Cell-Reg natural supplement. Offered in 180 capsule bottles, it contains over 50 acetogenins. Standardized and to make it easy, just take 2 capsules with your meal 3 times a day to support your immune system.
The Paw Paw twigs are harvested at the optimal time to ensure that the acetogenincompounds are the most biologically active and you will experience the full benefit. This supplement is known as a cell regulator for how the ATP production is affected by the consumption of paw paw and accompanying acetogenins. The ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) is a cell’s major source of energy. By slowing the production of ATP in the Mitochondria(the cell’s powerhouse) of abnormal cells, their growth is inhibited. The growth of the blood vessels surrounding abnormal cells may also be reduced. Without enough energy (ATP) to run the power plant (the Mitochondria), a cell cannot grow.
More and more research is being published that identifies the tumor suppressing qualities of paw paw and other annonaceousacetogenins. For the most active paw paw, Nature’s Sunshine has used the extracts of the North American Paw Paw tree which has been found to contain the most concentrated amount of acetogenins.
As a natural supplement offered by Nature’s Sunshine, it can be taken along with other medical diets. Paw Paw Cell-Reg can also be taken in conjunction with conventional medical and cancer treatments.
For well over 10 years Paw Paw and its acetogenins have been recognized in the fight against cellular abnormalities. This product is only recommended for regular use by those with such disorders and one should be careful to note the 2 capsule serving size or nausea may result.
Nature’s Sunshine Paw Paw Cell-Reg is the one and only standardized acetogenin product. Containing over 50 annonaceousacetogenins, their selective targeting of abnormal cells is what gives the immune system a boost.Using an invertebrate bioassay, the potency and effect have been standardized to ensure consistent potency and cellular affect.
Clinical tests that included over 100 participants confirmed that Paw Paw Cell-Reg does indeed support our bodies’ cells when under stress. You can also feel good knowing that the trees that are helping your body in the fight are not harmed in the harvesting. Since only the twigs are used, the same trees can be harvested time and again without damage.
Being one of Nature’s Sunshine’s most popular products, Paw Paw Cell-Reg can be ordered on our website www.naturesbesthealthstore.com, along with over 500 other natural supplements, tax free. Also, make sure to take advantage of our new loyalty program.
