The fountain of youth for $49 per month?
Perhaps. We now know that aging can be linked to blood levels of thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances (TBARS,) and that TBARS are elevated in people who have (or will get) Heart Disease, Cancers, or who are under stress. Well, a 2005 study revealed that a combination of five herbal medicines reduced TBARS levels by more than 40% within 30 days. And, an ongoing trial suggests this combination of herbs may slow the aging process of a mature adult to that of a 20 year old. read more
Less Wrinkles with Estriol Cream?
Yes, Two clinical trials suggest that treatment for 6 months with Estriol cream improves elasticity and firmness and moisture of the skin. In fact, in one study, wrinkle depth decreased by 61 to 100%. And, unlike other estrogens that have been linked to cancer, Estriol seems to have cancer preventive effects. Physicians and Pharmacists have been recommending Estriol cream topically to keep tissues healthy for decades, now, research supports this recommendation for improving wrinkle appearance. Talk to your Northwest Center doctor about whether Estriol Cream is right to help you maintain a youthful and vibrant appearance!

Natural Medicine Products Update:
ProstaPro replaces Serenoa Gelcaps: ProstaPro, newly available in the country, is THE Saw Palmetto that was used as the basis for all Saw Palmetto prescriptions for prostate health. It is also twice the potency of Serenoa gelcaps. As more effective, and more potent plant extracts become available, you can be sure we will bring them to you! Q-Cell CoQ10 now available: Q-Cell is a new 50mg CoQ10 that boasts up to eight times the absorption of regular CoQ10.
Choleast is at an new higher potency: Choleast is now in a 900mg potency per pill (vs. 600mg)-- so you can get the same cholesterol-reducing effect with less pills. Stress X is now Stress Factors and RelaxMax is now back in stock: These two formulas are great to help you tolerate a stressful environment. Might want to to these on hand during the holidays!
