WHAT DO REGULAR HEARTBEAT, DIGESTION & HEALTHY NERVES HAVE IN COMMON?

It’s MAGNESIUM. I began to use it regularly when I noticed I was having more leg cramps. I use this one – it tastes good and mixes easily.

NATURE’S DESSERT…

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE Summer fruit!

REAL FOOD OR “FOOD LIKE?”

EVERY year thousands of new products are launched in our grocery stores. 70 to 80% of these items will fail and be pulled from the shelves. But, those that remain could be “food like” rather than actual, nutritious whole food items. Most of these engineered “foods” are not created by nature but made in a lab. The majority are designed by food scientists and not chefs, and that photo of the cute Italian Lady in her apron or the celebrity chef smiling with pride does  ...
