67OMNIZYMEFORTEMany of you are wondering why you haven’t been able to get Omnizyme Forte and have had to settle for Omnizyme, instead. Here’s the story.

In mid-March, just as we were supposed to be getting a shipment of Omnizyme Forte from our contract manufacturer we were informed that not only would the product not be delivered when promised, it would not be available in the near future. This meant that the search was on for a new manufacturer.

Well, the search took longer than we had hoped. We had several criteria that we insisted upon; GMP certification, manufacturing experience and quality, raw material availability, ability to manufacture in a timely manner and, of course, price. Finding a manufacturer with all of these qualifications was no simple task and we thought we were close several times only to have it all fall through due to one major problem or another.

After weeks of work and research we finally made our choice and have now gone to contract and Omnizyme Forte will soon be available again.

Will there be any changes?

Yes, there will be.  For the better. The new Omnizyme Forte will still contain nearly all of the old ingredients. We removed rutin due to  food sensitivity issues in a number of customers. It was a minor player in the old formula. The new Omnizyme Forte will be in specially enteric coated capsules instead of the tablets it has been delivered in. It will also be smaller than it has been in the recent past.

Why capsules?

For many years we have been getting requests to put this formula in capsules. We simply couldn’t comply because the technology to protect capsule contents from the gastric juices in the stomach just wasn’t fully developed.

The advantages of capsules are many. There is no loss of enzyme activity due to heat of compressing tablets. There are fewer excipients (binders, fillers, granulating agents, etc. ) required to make the tablet hold together on the outside of the body and break apart in the correct spot on the inside of the body. In other words,  make the product work as it should. Capsules are, for many people, easier to swallow. The only disadvantage is size because tablets compress the ingredients and usually have a smaller footprint. We have also taken advantage of newer technology that allows us to use more concentrated forms of our raw materials and make the capsules actually smaller than tablets have been in the recent past.

Now we can report that the technology is developed to the point where we can deliver the product to you in capsule form with at least an equal, and in our opinion greatly improved, strength and quality. Thus we can now take advantage of that improved technology to bring you the most powerful and advanced proteolytic enzyme formulation available.

When Will It Be Available?

This is being written in late July. We expect to have Omnizyme Forte available in about 8 weeks from this posting. We expect to have an improved Omnizyme product manufactured along the same technology available shortly thereafter. As we know exact delivery dates we will post them here. In the meantime we will once again begin accepting orders for this product on a backorder basis which will be shipped on a first-come-first-served basis as it arrives. Get your orders in so we can ship as soon as they arrive! Order HERE

Are you or your clients dealing with bloating, gas, the “lump in the stomach” feeling? Wondering how to approach the problem?

Gestall HCL may be just what you’re looking for. It utilizes our two-phase tableting technology to help provide that extra support that individuals with digestive issues often need.

Phase one is the stomach phase of the tablet containing the betaine HCL and Glutamic  HCL, pepsin, gentian root, ginger root, bromelain, papain, and dessicated stomach. Phase two is the duodenal phase which is where the pancreatin, amylase, pancrelipase, ox bile extract and dessicated duodenum support are delivered.

Proper support for digestion can have many benefits in both the long and short terms  since complete digestion of the food we eat is critical to proper nutrient absorption and utilization.

If you think that some of your clients may need additional digestive support (see our technical bulletin on Gestall HCL for more information) now’s your chance to try it at a discount.

For the entire month of December (a BIG eating month!) we are offering Gestall HCL at a 10% discount.

It’s the time of the year. The weather turns cold and suddenly there’s lung congestion all around. Coughing, wheezing, chest tightness. A winter cough can be quite unpleasant.

Now’s the time to give your lungs the support they need. Pneumaplex is specially designed to give maximum support to these important but often neglected organs. It contains vitamin support in the form of Beta-Carotene as well as herbal support using Slippery Elm, Pleurisy Root, Foenugreek, Thyme, Yerba Santa and Perilla Seed Extract,

These nutrients seperately provide powerful support for many problems associated with the lungs but together they serve synergistically to create a potent all-purpose lung support supplement.

If you or your clients need a supplement designed to support the lungs through a tough winter (or any other season- they all can be hard on the lungs in different ways) then Pneumaplex is for you.

NEWS RELEASE


TAKE ACTION NOW TO STOP S.510

CALL YOUR SENATORS TODAY!

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

http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm

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.

burr.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=Contact.Conta…


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!

Senate main number is (202) 224-3121

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.

Freedom Action Conference

What’s going on with Codex Alimentarius? What’s the FDA up to? How come the FTC seems to be doing a lot of the FDA’s dirty work? And how does this relate back to the Codex? Are there deeper implications of the Codex? If you’re wondering about the answers to these questions or have others we haven’t thought of, then you need to join us for the 2010 Freedom Action Conference. Health freedom doesn’t exist in a vacuum. It’s a piece in the puzzle of personal liberty.

This August, you can get more of the rest of the pieces and the guide to how to assemble them.

The health care freedom advocates that will be presenting are true experts in their fields. Scott Tips is an attorney with an international practice, practicing law in both the United States and Europe. Scott is the president of the National Health Federation and is THE expert on Codex Alimentarius, a European organization trying to assume control over American medicine through international treatyagreement. You can read more on Scott HERE.

Other presenters will be Dr. Jeffrey Marrongelle, an expert in Homotoxicology and nutrition. He is a graduate and member of the Board of Trustees for Capitol University of Integrative Medicine, in Washington, D.C. He is a primary researcher in the effects of Electomagnetic fields with the Human Physiology. Dr, Marrongelle and Scott Tips are speaking on Codex and the continuing drive to control natural supplements.

Additionally, Dr. Jane Orient is speaking on ObamaCare, crisis and opportunity Will it destroy private medicine – or cause it to rise from the ashes? Dr. Orient has been in solo private practice since 1981 and has served as Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) since 1989. She is the author of YOUR Doctor Is Not In: Healthy Skepticism about National Healthcare, Sutton’s Law (a novel about where the money is in medicine today), and the second and third editions of Sapira’s Art and Science of Bedside Diagnosis.

This is simply a line-up you wont want to miss! We’ll be there. Come see us! Sign up today at FreedomActionConference.com.

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).

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!
