Jarro-Zymes Plus contains porcine pancreatic enzymes because their composition is similar to that of human pancreatic enzymes and are superior to vegetable enzymes. Alpha galactosidase is produced by single cell fermentation and facilitates digestion of legumes.
We are in a youth oriented society and no matter how much you may change your outside appearance with clothes and make-up, our insides are moving at a rate that stays in tact with our actual birthdate! What this means is that many of our insides such as our digestion system do not work like they did when we were in our twenties. Poor digestion can cause problems with our organs and cause build up in our colon. You know what that means, and besides it not being pretty, the indigestion, bloat, gas, constipation and heartburn cause problems in your everyday life. The gift is that digestive enzymes taken with meals help the body digest the foods the way they are supposed to be digested and remove toxicity in the intestines and colon. What is important is that the digestive enzymes are natural and contain a formula that includes the right amount of specific ingredients that create the flow of movement while eating.
JARRO-ZYMES PLUS Cold- Extracted Pancreatin, contains extra strength Lipase which is very important in the digestion process, as well as Alpha Galactosidase that helps with gas and bloating. Taking these capsules with each meal, or as directed by a health professional will keep your insides matching the youthful outside! It is important to eat breakfast, as that starts your metabolism. I use the JARRO-ZYME PLUS at lunch and dinner. It is especially beneficial at night when digestion is at its slowest. That includes every age, which is why it is suggested to eat your largest meal in the middle of the day. For many of us that is hard to do, so the JARRO-ZYME, digestion enzymes truly make a progressive difference. If I do not use them, I can feel and see bloat that is not there when taking the Jarrow enzymes. Jarrow also produces the enzymes in vegetarian/vegan capsules. I have tried other digestive enzyme brands and they do not work as well as Jarrow. The completeness of their products is bar-none as well as the quality. Whole Foods turned me on to Jarrow, and I am always satisfied!
Additionally important to intestine and immune health are probiotics. You can’t turn a magazine page or watch television without hearing something about digestion. This is not an ad, it is to inform you about products that per my experience and twenty years of media reporting are the very best.
Jarrow Formulas has an enhanced Probiotic system called Jarro-Dophilus EPS. This specific Probiotic formula is room temperature stable. Many Probiotics need to be refrigerated. These do not. It has 8 species with clinically documented strains in vegetarian capsules and have five (5) billion organisms per capsule! The capsules are Enteric coated for enhanced survival. I take one to two a day, but check with your professional. You can take up to four a day. Take them on an empty stomach.
So here is to staying healthy, youthful inside and out and feeling great while doing it!
Jarrow Formulas are considered number one in the market and have a seal on their packets to prove it!

Have you noticed that when a product is considered “HOT” on the market it appears in and on EVERYTHING! Resveratrol is one of those products. Be careful what you wish for… You might just purchase the wrong Resveratrol!
Everyone from the Mayo Clinic to believe it or not UTUBE has something to say about Resveratrol. In short, Resveratrol is an antioxidant and similar to red wine (In moderation,) is considered to be good for the heart. The youthful factor is now tagged onto everything Resveratrol from tonics to face spritz!
I have spoken with several Doctors, who have stated that findings on Resveratrol are beneficial, but the data is new, and more research needs to be done. I wanted to try it out for myself, and in doing my own research, as I suggest to you, read many labels. I did this and then purchased Resveratrol 100 by Jarrow Formulas. The brand is not paying me to write about them, nor do they know that I am one of their customers. The company is a reputable one; please feel free to check them out. What I like about Resveratrol 100 is that is offers 100 mg of Resveratrol. Many supplements have great looking packages but the inside contents include additional ingredients. RESV 100 as I am calling it includes Vitamin C and Resveratrol, that is it and that is what I like about it.
I have been taking it about two months, and in my personal opinion, it is too early to make major claims about it. I can tell you that I am also taking ACAI Berry (More about that product on a different post), and although it is too early to make major claims, I do feel good over these past two months of product use. Used as directed they are not harmful and my Doctor gave them the thumbs up!
If you want to try Resveratrol, please make sure you are actually getting the real thing. Write me and tell me about your experience. Do not expect miracles, if a product says it will take ten years off your age, and it does not include Yoga or a Surgical knife, it is most likely full of it. To those who have created Resveratrol 100, thank you. Every little bit helps!

Not all Pomegranate Juices are alike. The bottle may say fresh, but check it, because it could be concentrated, which means you are not getting fresh Pomegranate juice.

HIGH POINT POMEGRANTE NEWS! Pomegranate juice is known to lower bad cholesterol and stimulate the immune system. Pomegranate juice helps alleviate post-menopausal and menopausal symptoms due to the Phytoestrogen found in the Pomegranate seeds. Pomegranate juice is beneficial for those with digestive disorders by stimulating digestion. A UCLA study indicates that drinking a glass of pomegranate juice every day can assist in slowing down the spread of prostate cancer, the leading cause of death of men in the USA.
