Help Stop Lame Duck Senatorial Regulatory Shenanigans

From our friends at the National Health Federation




November 16, 2010

As you have heard from several other sources, the Beast is back. Congress has begun its dreaded Lame Duck session where the discredited Congressional Leadership intends to pass every anti-freedom measure they can while they still hang by their filthy claws on to power.

Among the many disturbing acts of violence Congress plans to inflict upon Americans is the so-called Food Safety Modernization Act (S.510), which is scheduled for a cloture vote on Wednesday. You have already taken steps to oppose S.510 before, but now it is really time to take action and stop this monstrosity from being passed.

In a misguided attempt to “safeguard” our food supply, S.510 grants extraordinary powers to the FDA, which already has a long history of abuse and misuse of its authority over both foods and supplements. This bill would give the FDA the authority to impose extensive, burdensome requirements on small- and medium-sized farms, ranches, and orchards such that many of them would certainly be driven out of business. Far from making our food supply safer, this bill would make it less safe. You must help us stop it!

So please call your Senators today to urge them to oppose S.510!

You can find your two Senators’ contact information at

In addition, even if they are not your own Senators, contact the following Senators to complain about their anti-freedom support of S.510: Orrin Hatch (UT), Tom Harkin (IA), Mike Enzi (WY), Lamar Alexander (TN), Judd Gregg (NH), John Isakson (GA), and Richard Burr (NC). These are Senators who should know better, but are supporting this bill in a misguided belief that it will actually accomplish something.………

Tell your Senators and these others that:

  1. S.510 fails to address the real cause of the problem: Big Agribusiness and increasing centralization of the food supply. We need to DE-centralize, not increase centralized, Federal control.
  2. They need to at least support the Tester-Hagan amendment, and even broaden its scope, so that small farms, ranches, and orchards will not be disproportionately impacted by burdensome rules and regulations when these food suppliers are not even the cause of any problems in the food supply.
  3. S.510 actually supports foreign food suppliers and helps them compete against our own U.S. companies!
  4. S.510 puts arbitrary power into the hands of the very agency (the FDA) that has proven time and again that it cannot be trusted with such powers.
  5. You will make it your personal mission to tell everyone you know that, if they vote for S.510, these Senators voted to wreck America’s food supply and that they are personally responsible for the food problems this bill will have caused.
  6. You support the efforts of Senator Tom Coburn to mandate spending offsets to pay for the massive increases in the FDA’s $4 billion dollar budget. We need government fiscal restraint, not more increases in deficit spending.

And for all of those who signed our On-Line Petition opposing S.510, our NHF Lobbyist Lee Bechtel is hand-delivering that completed Petition to Senate Offices today.

Please take action right now! Your calls could make the difference!

Weekly Special- Extended To Nov. 20, 2010- Super Limonene

Got customers with acid reflux who want to try a natural approach to the problem? Then we’ve got what you want.

Super Limonene is a natural extract from orange peel that has some unique properties. It can help the body reduce discomfort from GERD (acid reflux) a couple of different ways. It floats on top of the stomach fluids and helps soothe the irritated mucous membranes in the stomach.

Some have reported belching with this product but that’s not necessarily a bad thing in this case. That’s because the second way it helps is by coating the lining of the esophagus, thus helping the body to protect that area from damage from stomach acid.

Now’s your opportunity to try this approach to the problem of reflux at a great new price!

Between Nov. 7 and Nov. 20th, 2010 we are offering a 10% discount on Super Limonene. If ordering online use the coupon code “SLIM.” Wholesale customers can purchase here.

Co-Enzyme Q10 Ubiquinol Softgels- New Low Price!

Rainrock Nutritionals is pleased to announce a new, much lower price on a great supplement!

We are reducing the price on our Co-Enzyme Q10 softgels in the highly absorbable ubiquinol form. The ubiquinol is already a vast improvement over the previous ubiquinone softgel product in terms of product value. Increased absorption means less expense in the long run. But, to provide even more incentive to look into a great product with an increased value,we’ve been able to reduce the price by 33%. Not bad.

Ubiquinol has been praised as the most highly absorbable and handiest forms of the vital nutrient co-enzyme Q10. Unlike co-enzyme Q10 delivered in the original ubiquinone form, ubiquinol doesn’t have the requirement of being absorbed poorly in the absence of relatively large amounts of oils and fats as a carrier. This used to restrict use of co-enzyme Q10 supplementation to around meal times.

There have been many attempts to get around this problem. The one that has been most successful for us has been the use of the sublingual (dissolved under the tongue) tablet form (see our Co-Enzyme Q10 Sublingual Tablets), which is still a VERY important delivery method if quick action is desired. But the new ubiquinol form means that co-enzyme Q10 may be ingested between meals if desired and without use of other oils to boost absorption.

Reduced prices are always GOOD NEWS during economic hard times!

McCain Flip-Flops On Dietary Supplement Regulation

In an article in the Over The Counter Today blog we learned that Sen. John McCain has withdrawn all support of his own bill (S. 3002), the laughably misnamed Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010.

In effect this bill would have imposed draconian penalties for dietary supplement companies who made new products with recently uncovered ingredients if they weren’t marketed in the United States prior to the passage of the Dietary Supplement Health Education Act (Oct. 15, 1994). In other words, only drug companies would have access to ingredients that became available prior to nearly 16 years ago. If a company were to use one of these ingredients, the FDA would be empowered to call it “adulterated” and to order an instant recall. It also handed the Secretary of Health and Human Services the power to ban ingredients by simply striking them from a list called “Accepted Dietary Ingredients.”

It is clear that McCain is feeling the political heat. He is in a tense primary battle to keep his Arizona US Senate seat and apparently, enough of you have contacted his office and expressed your displeasure with this new power grab to give him the idea that maybe supplements ought to be left alone. This effort of McCain’s was really just one of the many steps the federal government is taking to turn control of all dietary supplements and pharmaceuticals over to the control of international “authorities” by adopting the European “Codex Alimentarius” as law in the United States. This essentially would place all regulation of supplements under the control of European bureaucrats who are themselves under the control of German Pharmaceutical giants.

McCain was convinced by both internal and external pressure to withdraw support for this bill. Your calls helped as did this letter from Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah.

But we must be vigilant. Dietary supplements are in the cross hairs of regulators and the current administration. I was told at a meeting of Complementary and Alternative Medicine providers and patients last summer that the Obama health care bill would ensure the continuation of the easy availability of dietary supplements. This is an absurd notion. The European example tells a very different story. Dietary supplements throughout the EU are rapidly becoming an endangered species (except in the UK which doesn’t care for German control of ANYTHING).

New Formula Virucidal- Now With Vitamin D3!

VRCMWe are in the middle of a hype-filled cold and flu season. Government agencies proclaim and news outlets dutifully repeat the proclamations verbatim (with no investigation of the veracity of the claims) the coming DOOM if certain drastic steps aren’t taken.

Many of you are looking for something to give maximum natural support to your immune system , your body’s built-in ability to fight off colds, flus and bacterial assaults on it. Now you can stop looking!

Virucidal has been one of our top sellers for years, and for good reason. It works! And we have always taken great pains to make sure it continues to work better and better.

We have been watching the research on Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) for a while now and when it came time to review Virucidal‘s formulation for possible updating it became obvious that what was missing from this already potent formulation was this suddenly VERY important nutrient.

And here’s one of the most important parts. We were able to add 1000 IU of Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) per capsule to Virucidal WITHOUT increasing the price!

If you are already a Virucidal customer then you know just how well the old formulation works. You will be impressed with the New Vitamin D3 containing formulation. New customers cannot help but be impressed with the new formulation’s ability to aid the body in fighting and warding off nasty seasonal attacks on your health. Give NEW Virucidal a try!

New Ubiquinol Co-enzyme Q10 Formulation

CQCMany of you have heard about the latest in Co-enzyme Q10 research that says that the Ubiquinol form of Co-enzyme Q10 is by far the most active and absorbable form of this important supplement. If you have clients over 40 and/or on statin type drugs then Co-enzyme Q10 supplementation is a MUST!

The heart is responsible for moving blood through your system 24 hours a day. It must constantly work to keep you alive. For this reason, heart cells, have far more mitochondria than any other type of cell in your body.And one of the most important fuel pumps for the mitochondria is Co-enzyme Q10. Even heart specialists are finally beginning to see the importance of Co-enzyme Q-10 and are recommending it to their patients.

By the time we reach our mid 40’s our body’s own production of Co-Enzyme Q-10 is about half of what it was in our 20’s. For this reason, many choose to supplement their Co-enzyme Q-10. Many have reported that they have more energy, are no longer short of breath, and that many different health problems have vanished. Since many of the cells utilized in our defense mechanism have a large quantity of mitochondria naturopaths and nutritionists have claimed for decades that Co-enzyme Q-10 plays a major role in our immune system. In just the past few years, more and more professionals are jumping on the bandwagon. Several studies and books have been published on the subject. We have two Co-enzyme Q-10 products.

The softgel contains the culmination of modern research on Co-enzyme Q10 in the form of Ubiquinol. Ubiquinol is the most active and absorbable form of Co-enzyme Q10. It is reported to be up to 4 times more active than the Ubiquinone form of old.

New! Super-Limonene Is Here!

SLimROur new orange peel extract product Super-Limonene is here! It is a 95% extract of D-Limonene from 1053 mg yielding 1000 mg of D-Limonene.

Many of you are looking to natural support or a low-cost alternative for heartburn and/or GERD (gastro-esophogeal reflux disease). If you are one of the millions who suffer from one of these this might be just what you are looking for.

How does it work? That’s currently the focus of several studies. There is some research that indicates that D-Limonene, which is less dense than water and floats on top of material in the stomach may help coat the esophagus and soothe the burning of GERD and protecting the tissues. D-Limonene may also have the effect of promoting a faster movement of material in the stomach down into the gut by causing valves to open and close more normally. Along this line of thinking, some have reported help with low-motility and constipation.

Whatever the mechanism of action, this might be something that could support your body in combatting the ravages of heartburn, GERD, Constipation or low-motility.
