The main reason I take ALTRUM Supplements is that they have ultra high quality while offering deep discounts for consumers.

Caveat Emptor

Recently on the news, New York Times etc….

Using DNA Testing authorities catch makers and retailers of Supplements/Vitamins cheating on a huge scale…..

“The New York State attorney general’s office accused four major retailers on Monday of selling fraudulent and potentially dangerous herbal supplements and demanded that they remove the products from their shelves.

Key ingredients such as St. John’s Wort and Echinacea completely missing.

The authorities said they had conducted tests on top-selling store brands of herbal supplements at four national retailers — GNC, Target, Walgreens and Walmart — and found that four out of five of the products did not contain any of the herbs on their labels.

The tests showed that pills labeled medicinal herbs often contained little more than cheap fillers like powdered rice, asparagus and houseplants, and in some cases substances that could be dangerous to those with allergies.

The investigation came as a welcome surprise to health experts who have long complained about the quality and safety of dietary supplements, which are exempt from the strict regulatory oversight applied to prescription drugs.”

This is why Altrum is a logical and safe choice.

Integrity

In a perfect world you don’t need supplements.

The October and November issues of the Altrum Newsletter demonstrate Amsoil’s commitment to integrity. If anyone would like hard copies let me know. They can also be viewed online.

Altrum.

The products they offer are intended to be the best choice for the consumer based upon existing technology and cost-benefit analysis whether it’s Lubes or Supplements.

This has become clearer and clearer to me as time goes on. Pretty amazing when you think about it.

COPD

Several homeopathic helpers.

There is no cure for COPD.

Several things that improve quality of life:

1.) NAC N-Acetylcysteine.
2.) All 8 Amino Acids
3.) Vitamin C, IVC
4.) Glutathione
5.) Licorice Extract, Glycyrrhizin ( see article).

Nebulizers used in some cases for administering various components.

Use a homeopathic physician.

ALTRUM SUPPLEMENTS

Pineapple

Pineapples stop ripening the minute they are picked. No special way of storing them will help ripen them further.

Colour is relatively unimportant in determining ripeness. Choose your pineapple by smell. If it smells fresh, tropical and sweet, it will be a good fruit.

Pineapple is a remarkable fruit.

The juice has an anthelmintic effect; it helps get rid of intestinal worms.

Pineapple is high in manganese, a mineral that is critical to development of strong bones and connective tissue. A cup of fresh pineapple will give you nearly 75% of the recommended daily amount.

It is particularly helpful to older adults, whose bones tend to become brittle with age.

Bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme, is the key to pineapple’s value. Proteolytic means “breaks down protein”, which is why pineapple is known to be a digestive aid. It helps the body digest proteins more efficiently.

Bromelain is also considered an effective anti-inflammatory. Regular ingestion of at least one half cup of fresh pineapple daily is purported to relieve painful joints common to osteoarthritis. It also produces mild pain relief.

In Germany, bromelain is approved as a post-injury medication because it is thought to reduce inflammation and swelling.

Orange juice is a popular liquid for those suffering from a cold because it is high in Vitamin C. Fresh pineapple is not only high in this vitamin, but because of the Bromelain, it has the ability to reduce mucous in the throat. If you have a cold with a productive cough, add pineapple to your diet. It is commonly used in Europe as a post-operative measure to cut mucous after certain sinus and throat operations.

Those individuals who eat fresh pineapple daily report fewer sinus problems related to allergies. In and of itself, pineapple has a very low risk for allergies.

Pineapple is also known to discourage blood clot development. This makes it a valuable dietary addition for frequent fliers and others who may be at risk for blood clots.

This is why Altrum Longevity Enzymes contain Pineapple enzymes and Papaya enzymes.

Colds

Unknown wildflower –photo by Steve Dawes 2015

Got a cold. Everybody seems to be getting it.

Sneezy, clogged runny nose. Watery eyes. Became really noticeable yesterday after dinner.

At the first sign of symptoms I took the Altrum Cold Season Zinc Lozenges as I always do.

Contains: Slippery Elm, Echinacea, Zinc, Selenium, Propolis, Vitamins A, C etc.

Directions on bottle say dissolve 3 lozenges in mouth and follow every 2 hrs with another. No more than 12 a day. Seems to start working almost immediately. Relief.

This time next morning improvement was big.

Pycnogenol

Pycnogenol is obtained from Pine Tree Bark.

It is a cold and flue fighter as well as general health supplement.

I currently get Pycnogenol from Prelox Blue from Herbalife.

Prelox Blue was designed by Louis J Ignarro for Herbalife. He was the 1998 Nobel Prize Winner for Physiology or Medicine, Cellular Research.

Prelox Blue also contains L-Arginine and is marketed by Herbalife as a male sexual enhancer. L-Arginine increases nitrous oxide content in the blood.

I noticed a definite improvement in cold/flue resistance when on Prelox Blue.

Another benefit is that it can cure tinnitus — ear ringing.
