Stuff Onions In Socks

Whether a daily dose of onions is on your menu or not, after you learn this simple trick you’ll make sure you have onions always in reach.

Although onions are mostly considered a food to eat, these pungent vegetables actually have other uses that can change your life. And after you learn how onions can heal you by putting them in your socks, you’ll be blown away.

If you put onions in your socks and sleep with them at night, they can actually heal you of cold, flu, and fever-like symptoms. Not bad for a veggie we are all too familiar with.

Now that more people are hearing about this creative use of onions, they’re giving it a try for themselves.

“You have nothing to lose by giving the onion theory a try,” Jennifer Thompson, a blogger who peeled the layers off the trick to get to the bottom of it. Her readers who heard about it gave it a try and the results they reported are nothing short of amazing!

After writing about the healing powers of onions, Jennifer tweeted to her audience about the onion sock trick and got a massive response.

But how does this onion trick work? With more than 7,000 nerve endings in the feet that link to different bodily organs, reflexologists have long known the feet hold a secret to good health.

A Los Angeles-based homeopathic doctor, Dr. Lauren Feder advocates for the use of onions for their healing properties.

“For colds, an onion pouch in [a] room can help with congestion,” Dr. Feder suggested. “In addition to treating colds, onion socks can be used for earaches, teething, and bladder infections.”

If you’re ready to try it, you’ll need to cut up some onions, white or red both work, and attach them to your feet.

With the onions strapped in place put on your socks, elevate your feet, and get some sleep. The strong anti-bacterial and anti-viral benefits of the onion will help purify your body.

If you’re ready to try it, watch the video below and let us know if you do.

******************************************************************************

Here is a little chart that Kelly Bagnasco posted showing the health benefits of mangos.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF MANGOS

From this chart, I would say that this is a very beneficial fruit. I think I myself will try to start eating it more often. I have only eaten mangoes a few times that I can remember. But I really like it in tea drink mixes. So I can’t imagine that I won’t like eating it by itself.

ACID RE FLUX Smoothie

Acid Reflux Smoothie

I’VE HAD A GAZILLION REQUEST FOR THIS so here it is. Now save it to your timeline so you don’t loose it.

I don’t have acid re flux anymore. I’ve lost inches off my belly so the pressure is gone. I drank it every afternoon on a normal day but on a bad day I would drink it more. Now, I only drink it when I need too!! But I know many of my friends and family still suffer with it, so this one’s for you!

ACID RE FLUX Smoothie

Ingredients: 1 and 1/2 cups diced fresh pineapple (yes you may use frozen if thats all you can get) , 1 banana, 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, 1/2 cup ice, 1/2 cup pineapple juice or water. Blend to consistency of a smoothie. Drink as much as you need and whenever you like.

You can’t substitute the recipe with other fruits, you may however try flavored yogurt to see how you do with it

Natural Remedies for Bee, Wasp, and Hornet Stings

Natural Remedies for Bee, Wasp, and Hornet Stings
Always seek medical attention though if your condition doesn’t improve or worsens!

If a stinger is left embedded in the body, then remove it as soon as possible. This should be the first step. Use whatever tools are immediately available to dig it out. You could use a knife, credit card, pliers, tweezers, or a needle. Sterilize the tool if possible, but do not waste time. For maximum absorption, clean the area with soap and water before applying remedies, otherwise the oils on the skin will repel them.

Wasp and Hornet Stings:
Vinegar – Wasp and hornet venom are powerful alkalines. Use an acid such as vinegar to neutralize them. It can be applied via a piece of cloth or bandaging. Make sure to keep the stings soaked for at least 15 minutes. Some vinegar will absorb through the skin, and it should greatly help eliminate the discomfort.

Bee and Yellow Jacket Stings:
Baking Soda – In the case of bee stings, baking soda will help to neutralize the acidic venom. Make a paste by combining baking soda with water. Leave this paste on the sting site for at least 15 minutes. Some of the dissolved baking soda will leach through the skin to neutralize the venom somewhat. After applying it, and cleaning the sting area of residue; a chamomile tincture may be repeatedly applied for any residual itching or swelling.

Emergency Allergic Reactions:
If there is difficulty breathing, extreme dizziness, or nausea after a sting, then there is a high probability that it triggered a dangerous allergic reaction. In these cases, we recommend quickly consuming a large (i.e. quadruple) dose of chamomile. Chamomile is related to ragweed, so those with ragweed allergies should skip this step. A large amount of echinacea is also strongly recommended, if available. If pulse irregularities are experienced, then try to take some taurine, even if that means just holding the powder in the mouth. Then immediately get to the nearest hospital. The allergic reaction may stop by the time you arrive at the hospital, but you should definitely make the trip in case it does not. In these unfortunate latter cases, a steroid injection may be required to save your life.

Misinformation About Sting Remedies:
Treating most bee, wasp, and hornet stings is easy, but that may be difficult to believe if you have spent any time researching this topic on the Internet. Researching natural treatments for bee, hornet, and wasp stings is revealing about how much misinformation there is on the Internet. Some of it is laughable.

The Incredibly Stupid Sting “Treatments” That We Discourage:
Meat tenderizer
Onion
Potato
Mud (literally dirt and water)
Garlic
Ammonia
Vinegar combined with baking soda (neutralize themselves)

Monday = Blue,
Tuesday = Green,
Thursday = Red
Friday = White
Saturday = Yellow.
So if today was Thursday, you would want red twist tie; not white which is Fridays (almost a week old)! The colors go alphabetically by color Blue- Green – Red – White – Yellow, Monday through Saturday. Very easy to remember. I thought this was interesting. I looked in the grocery store and the bread wrappers DO have different twist ties, and even the ones with the plastic clips have different colors. You learn something new everyday! Enjoy fresh bread when you buy bread with the right color on the day you are shopping.

Don’t forget Gatorade for Migraine Headaches. Power Ade won’t work. Pass this information on to friends so they can be informed.

 

Top 16 Healing Home Remedies with Honey

******************************************************************************

I will put this notice on my post from now on, every time that I copy a post from Facebook, so all of my readers will know that this is not my work, but that of someone else. This, like so many of my posts have, came from Facebook. This was in Love Live Health in the health section.

Honey is more than just a delicious food product. This versatile natural substance has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years. It has therapeutic properties that can treat a range of ailments. Here are sixteen simple home remedies to help you heal your ills with honey.

 1. Cuts and Scrapes

cuts-and-scrapes-honey

Honey is antiseptic and antimicrobial. It can speed healing of minor wounds and help to prevent infection. After cleaning the wound, cover it with honey and apply a bandage. Change the dressing in the morning and before bedtime.

2. Coughs

coughs-honey-2

Studies have shown that honey can be just as effective as over-the-counter cough suppressants. Whisk together one cup of honey, three tablespoons of lemon juice and ¼ cup of warm water. Transfer the cough syrup to a jar with a lid and store in the refrigerator. Take by the tablespoon whenever a coughing fit strikes.

3. Cold sores

cold-sores-honey

Cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus. Honey is rich in flavonoids and phenolic acid, compounds shown to combat the virus in laboratory tests. Dab honey onto cold sores four times a day to speed the healing process. Applying honey to the affected area as soon as you begin to feel tingling and soreness may help prevent an outbreak.

4. Eczema

eczema-honey

Eczema is a persistent inflammation of the skin. The anti-inflammatory properties of honey can help to decrease the symptoms while the anti-bacterial properties work to prevent infection. Apply honey over red, itchy scaly areas. Cover with plastic wrap and leave for twenty minutes, then gently rinse to remove the sticky residue.

5. Hiccups

Causes and Ways to Overcome Hiccups

Hiccups are caused by involuntary spasmodic contractions of the diaphragm. Both honey and castor oil have anti-spasmodic properties. Mix a tablespoon of honey with a tablespoon of castor oil. Swallow a teaspoonful every five minutes until the hiccups stop.

6. Dandruff

dandruff-honey

Many cases of dandruff are caused by a fungal yeast. The anti-fungal properties of honey can provide relief from itching and flaking. Mix together a solution of three parts honey to one part water. After shampooing, massage the diluted honey into the scalp. Allow it to work for twenty minutes before rinsing hair in warm water.

7. Acne

acne-honey

Honey and cinnamon both have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. They help to prevent acne outbreaks and reduce redness and swelling. Mix together one tablespoon of powdered cinnamon and two tablespoons of honey. Use your fingers to apply the mixture to your face, concentrating on acne-prone areas. Allow the ingredients to work for ten minutes before rinsing.

8. Burns

burn-kid-honey

Clinical trials have shown that burns treated with honey heal faster than those treated with conventional medical dressings. To care for mild to moderate burns, cool the affected area under cold running water and pat dry. Slather thick, set honey over the burn and onto the surrounding skin. Cover the honey-coated area in plastic wrap and secure it with a bandage.

9. Dry Skin

dry-skin-honey

Honey is a humectant and helps skin to retain moisture. Olive oil improves the skin’s suppleness and elasticity. Whisk together equal amounts of honey and olive oil until they emulsify into a cream. Simply massage the lotion into all areas of dry skin.

10. Athlete’s foot

athletes-foot-honey

Athlete’s foot is a fungal infection characterized by red, itchy, flakey skin on the feet. Honey has natural fungicidal properties. Before bedtime, rub a thick layer of honey over the affected area. Cover your sticky feet in an old pair of socks and keep them on overnight. Wash and dry your feet in the morning and repeat the procedure each night until the infection clears

11. Sore throat

sore-throat-honey

Honey coats the throat to soothe irritation. Capsaicin in cayenne pepper helps to reduce throat pain by stimulating the mucous membranes. Fill a mug with water and stir in a tablespoon each of honey and lemon juice. Add ½ teaspoon of cayenne pepper. Heat the mixture in the microwave and slowly sip.

12. Sunburn

sunburn-honey

The humectant properties of honey help to keep moisture in sunburnt skin and the anti-inflammatory properties soothe redness, burning and irritation. Whisk together two cups of apple cider vinegar, one cup of water and ½ cup of honey. Transfer to a spray bottle and spritz over sunburnt areas for instant relief.

13. Acid Reflux

upset-stomach-honey

Acid reflux is a condition in which stomach acid enters the esophagus and damages its walls. Honey coats the lining of the throat to soothe the painful burning sensations caused by the acid. Because it is an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, it also helps to heal the mucus membranes. Simply swallow a teaspoon or two of honey when symptoms arise.

14. Dry, Damaged Hair

dry-damaged-hair-honey

Honey is a humectant and helps to hold moisture in the hair. Olive oil coats the hair shafts, providing smoothness and shine. To make a hair treatment, warm ½ cup of honey in the microwave and stir in ¼ cup of olive oil. Shampoo hair, then work the conditioner through it. Leave for ten minutes before rinsing with warm water.

15. Mouth Ulcers

mouth-ulcer-honey

A honey and turmeric salve can help to speed healing of mouth ulcers. Honey’s anti-microbial effects ward off infection, while turmeric acts as a natural antiseptic and cooling agent. Mix equal parts of honey and turmeric to form a thick paste. Use a cotton swab to apply it to the sore and leave for two minutes before rinsing your mouth. Continue the treatment twice daily until the ulcer is healed.

16. Insect Bites

honey

The anti-inflammatory properties of honey ease the redness and swelling associated with insect bites, while its antiseptic properties help to prevent infection. Baking soda calms itchiness and irritation. Create a paste by mixing together a tablespoon each of honey, olive oil and baking soda. Apply to the bite and cover with a bandage.

Dear Health Conscious Reader,As we get older and our bodies and minds start to slow down, many people think there’s nothing that can be done about it. Of course this isn’t true.

The truth is, there are natural solutions that can help you stay healthy and active for years to come.

Take a minute to read Ilsa K.’s story. It’s a real eye-opener when it comes to “hopeless” memory loss, which is something many of us fear falling victim to in our golden years:

At 85, Ilsa’s future was looking bleaker by the minute.[1] She couldn’t remember names, she had trouble recalling where she had been just hours before and she was forgetting what day it was.She was growing more agitated, so her worried daughter took her to a memory clinic. That’s when everyone’s worst fears were confirmed, and she was given a prescription, which her daughter actually believed made her cognitive problems worse.

The story could’ve ended there, with an aging mother losing touch with reality and a heartbroken family helplessly standing by.

Thank goodness it didn’t.

Luckily, the memory clinic also tested Ilsa for vitamin B12 and the results caught her doctor’s eye. Her blood levels were well below normal, so he began B12 treatment immediately.

What happened next was a miracle.

Within days, Ilsa’s brain “woke up.” She became less agitated. Her confusion went away. As her daughter recounts, “I felt I had my mother back, and she feels a lot better, too.”

Two years later, Ilsa was still independent and living in her New York home without outside assistance. Vitamin B12 did the trick!

Thankfully, Ilsa and her daughter learned the truth about B12 deficiencybefore it was too late. Millions of other people are not so lucky…

Before you run out and grab a bottle of vitamin B12 to boost your memory and protect your mind, there’s a shocking secret about what most B12 supplements are made from — and you deserve to know about it.

Please keep reading to learn how to safely increase your B12 levels and revitalize your health with the form of vitamin B12 that will do your body the most good.

Is There An “Ilsa” in Your Family? Could It Happen to You?

Right now, millions of American adults suffer the effects of low B12 and don’t even know it.

They think they’re “just getting older” or worse — and like Ilsa they aremisdiagnosed by their doctor with conditions like advanced cognitive decline… depression… fatigue… insomnia… balance disorders… jaundice… paresthesia (that pins-and-needles tingling)…and then given drugs that don’t fix the problem and may make it worse.

If you’ve experienced any of these symptoms, it’s imperative that you take action NOW before irreversible damage occurs. The good news is that B12 deficiency can be remedied easily, quickly and inexpensively.

SIGNS YOU HAVE A B12 DEFICIENCY
Low energy and weakness Memory problems
Confusion or “fuzziness” Irritability and mood swings
Persistent sleep problems Dizziness or lightheadedness
Digestive problems Weak immunity
Hearing and vision loss Tingling in the extremities

How bad is it? B12 deficiency now affects nearly 50% of older adults.[2,3] And nearly 40% of all adults are flirting with deficiency status and may already be suffering symptoms as a result. [4]

In fact, it’s so frequently missed by doctors that the Centers for Disease Control has rushed out a special course for physicians called “Why Vitamin B12 Deficiency Should Be On Your Radar Screen.”[5]

My advice to you — don’t wait for your doctor to bring it up!

It’s High Time Low B12 Was On Your Radar Screen

I read about Ilsa in The New York Times, so I’m glad the mainstream media is finally catching on to an urgent problem I’ve been warning my readers about for years.

The word is getting out:

“Being even mildly deficient in vitamin B12 may put older adults at a greater risk for accelerated cognitive decline.”[6] – Tufts Nutrition News, 2013
“B12 is the most important nutrient you aren’t thinking about…B12 deficiency can mimic all of the effects of aging.”[7] – Dr. David Katz of the Yale University Prevention Research Center in 2012
“B12 deficiency is common, with troubling symptoms…that are similar to many other problems related to growing older.”[8] -The Mayo Clinic Health Letter, September 2013
“B12 deficiency can be sneaky, harmful and is relatively common, especially among older people.”[9] -The Harvard Medical School’s health blog January 10th, 2013

The famous Dr. Mehmet Oz, recently devoted an episode of his TV show to“America’s B12 Deficiency”[10] and why this is a national crisis in the making.

However, the media reports are still missing one big part of the picture … and it might be the most important health-boosting factor of all:

You Need the Right Kind of B12 to Fix This Problem…
Because Most B12 Supplements Barely Work

Please read on for the full B12 story you’re not getting from the medical establishment. You’ll learn:

  • How B12 deficiency can be so widespread in the richest and best fed nation in the world. This is crucial, because you could be at risk even if you eat a healthy diet.
  • Why B12 in multivitamins and fortified foods may be completely ineffective. A false sense of security is the last thing you need.
  • Which form of B12 works best… and why the most common form of B12 simply won’t deliver optimal results no matter how much you take.

I’ll explain how in just a minute, but first…

Here’s How B12 Protects Your Brain

Scientists now understand that age-related cognitive decline is linked to a process in the body that involves a decrease in brain mass.

That’s right, your brain actually shrinks as you age! This reduction in brain mass is directly correlated with loss of memory and cognitive function seen in older individuals.[11]

Emerging research is showing that being deficient in B12 puts your brain in serious danger, so if you care about your cognitive health, you better be sure that you’re getting enough.

Recently, a landmark study showed vitamin B12 supplementation slows the rate of brain shrinkage and declining cognitive scores in older individuals.[12] Another study showed that older individuals with higher levels of B12 in their blood had less shrinkage of the brain. Those with higher B12 blood levels and increased brain size even scored higher on memory and cognitive tests![13]

Beware These 6 Red Flags:
How Low B12 Can Happen to Anyone

B12 deficiency is part nature, part our own doing. For many people, it’s the result of multiple factors coming together in a “perfect storm” of trouble. Here’s why it is so easy to become dangerously low on this vital nutrient.

Red Flag #1: You’re over 50.

Experts agree that B12 absorption decreases with age. That’s why B12 is “one of the few vitamins Mayo Clinic experts routinely recommend for older adults.”[14]

You see, B12 must first link up with a protein called intrinsic factor (IF), which is produced in your stomach. IF levels drop with age… which is why your B12 levels can plummet even when your diet remains the same.

Red Flag #2: Common medications.

Antacids, ulcer drugs or proton-pump inhibitors can trigger B12 deficiency because they block IF production. Likewise with aspirin and other medications that affect the stomach.

Even diabetes drugs like metformin can trigger B12 deficiency. Indeed, research has documented the link between metformin, low B12 and impaired cognitive performance.[15]

Red Flag #3 and #4: Your diet and alcohol intake.

Dietary B12 only comes from meat, poultry and seafood. So vegetarians are at risk — but so are folks who have simply cut back on their meat for health reasons, which is a lot of us! Plus, if you drink alcohol regularly, your ability to absorb B12 will be reduced.

Red Flag #5 and #6: Intestinal problems and surgery.

Conditions like IBS, Crohn’s, celiac disease, enteritis and food intolerances block B12 uptake at the receptor site. Plus any gastric surgery can reduce absorption, because it can eliminate stomach cells that produce intrinsic factor.

It’s a wonder we absorb any B12 when the deck is stacked against us. It takes powerful B12 support to turn the tide, so that’s why it’s important to know:

Multivitamins and “B12 Fortified” Foods Simply Won’t Do

Many people think their B12 needs are met by taking a multivitamin or eating fortified breakfast cereal. They are sadly mistaken.

Taking just any old multivitamin for low B12 is like trying to fill a swimming pool with a teaspoon.

First, the B12 in multivitamins may not even work.[16] Research shows that the form of B12 found in many multivitamins may chemically interact with the other nutrients in the multivitamin and could be ineffective by the time you take it.

Even if it remains stable, there’s a huge gulf between what you ingest and what you absorb. A lack of intrinsic factor could reduce your oral B12 absorption to as little as 1%.[17]

That’s why nationally known experts like Dr. Hyla Cass, M.D. of UCLA believe that the older you get, the more likely you’ll need to take significantly more B12 to offset absorption problems. Research shows it may take at least 200 times the current low RDA in order to successfully address B12 deficiency.[19]

B12 Is Crucial As You Age…
Because It Does SO MUCH to Keep You Young

So aside from its brain-protecting effects, why is ample B12 so important?First and foremost, you need B12 for normal DNA replication in every cell in your body. It helps you constantly generate healthy new cells that keep your body vibrant and your mind razor-sharp.

When B12 is low, your body can’t produce enough new cells. That’s why B12 deficiency starts aging you practically overnight. It triggers all the bad physical and mental effects of growing old at the most fundamental cellular level.

If DNA replication were B12’s only job, it would still be one of the most crucial nutrients of all. But B12 is the most biologically active vitamin by far.

Vitamin B12 also helps your body:

  • Convert carbohydrates and fats into energy. Extra B12 can help you enjoy greater energy, motivation and mental focus almost immediately.
  • Regulate sleep cycles. Fixing a deficiency can help you sleep soundly again, so you get the rest you need and wake up refreshed every day.
  • Keep nerve cells healthy and communicating with each other in an optimal manner — is critical for brain health and good physical balance as you age.
  • Neutralize dangerous homocysteine in your blood, to protect your heart, bones, vision, and hearing from this well-known health destroyer.
  • Keep your immune system working at its best, to help keep you healthy and illness-free even during cold-and-flu season.
  • Produce serotonin, the “feel good” neurotransmitter that helps to prevent depression. (Studies have linked low B12 and depression.[20,21])

The Vitamin B12 Supplement I Always
Recommend to My Readers

Many people who learn about low B12 make the big mistake of grabbing the first B12 they see at the supermarket.

Unfortunately, most B12 supplements are made with cheap, low-grade cyanocobalamin B12. This is the most difficult form of B12 for your body to absorb. In addition, many B12 supplements come in pill form, which is problematic because many older people lack the ability to absorb B12 through their digestive tract.

The very best B12 supplements are made with the superior methylcobalamin form of B12 and come in sublingual lozenges, so the B12 gets absorbed under your tongue directly into your bloodstream.

Unfortunately, the B12 supplements that have “all the right stuff” are often prohibitively expensive. This is a shame because the high cost often steers people towards cheap, ineffective B12 supplements.

I knew this was a big problem — and I was determined to solve it. You see, in addition to my work with the Live in the Now newsletter, I am also CEO of Stop Aging Now, a company that has produced premium nutritional supplements for nearly 20 years.

Working with my Scientific Advisory Board, I created a vitamin B12 formula calledMAX-B12. My goal in creating this formula was to offer a B12 product of superior quality at an amazingly affordable price, so that no one has to suffer the consequences of a B12 deficiency.

How affordable is MAX-B12? Well if you act today you can get MAX-B12 for as little as $7.95 per bottle!

There’s Ordinary B12… and Then There’s MAX-B12

The fast-acting power of MAX-B12 will simply amaze you. It’s so quickly absorbed into your bloodstream in its active B12 state that you’ll feel greater energy and mental focus within minutes. And when you take it daily, the lasting benefits will emerge and you could enjoy:

Sharper memory and clearer thinking
Improved energy and stamina all day
Fewer mood swings and greater well-being
Better sleep so you wake up refreshed
A stronger immune system to avoid illness
Protection for your heart, vision and hearing
And more, as every cell in your body gets the
B12 it so urgently needs
Great Results in Weeks…
“I am 50 years old and after only a few weeks of using the product I noticed increased energy levels, better memory and overall a better state of health”
-Joy Lester from Boonsboro, MD

MAX-B12 may cost the same or just a few pennies a day more than lowgrade supermarket B12, but its advantages are worth their weight in gold.

Let me explain the difference, and then you can be the judge:

MAX-B12 Advantage #1
You Get The Most Bioavailable Form of B12: Methylcobalamin

Methylcobalamin is the active form of B12 that cuts through absorption obstacles much better than cyanocobalamin. That’s because your body doesn’t have to struggle breaking it down into a usable form. Methylcobalamin is also the purer choice. You see, cyanocobalamin consists of a cyanide molecule joined with a cobalamin molecule. That’s right: cyanide. And it can accumulate in your brain over time with disastrous results.[22] That’s never a worry when you take MAX-B12instead.

MAX-B12 Advantage #2
The Fast-Acting Lozenges Promote Optimal Absorption

For a B12 delivery method, there’s no comparison to lozenges. B12 pills are hard to absorb. B12 liquids are messy and inconvenient. B12 sprays cost too much for what you get. MAX-B12 lozenges, on the other hand, are the perfect way to go: fast-acting, convenient, economical and pleasant tasting.

You dissolve each MAX-B12 under your tongue, directly absorbing the B12 into your bloodstream. Sublingual absorption lets you sidestep typical absorption and enjoy nearly immediate boosts in your mental clarity, mood and energy.

MAX-B12 Advantage #3
At 3000 mcg, It’s the Perfect Daily Serving Size

Many vitamin B12 supplements only give you 1,000 mcg a day of B12, which is far less than what you really need. Many leading experts recommend a daily intake of 3,000 mcg, which is the daily dose MAX-B12 provides. Most people find this an excellent level for B12 maintenance. However, if blood tests confirm that you are B12 deficient, you can safely increase your intake to 10,000-15,000 mcg daily until levels are adequate. Remember there is zero toxicity with B12 so it’s safe to take high doses.

MAX-B12 Advantage #4
Made in the U.S.A. in a State-of-the-Art Facility

MAX-B12 is produced in an FDA-inspected facility and exceeds the strict quality standards set by the US Pharmacopeia (USP). You can be confident you’re taking the purest B12 available, in the form shown to be the safest and most effective for daily use.

Quality and purity matter a lot. The market is flooded with low-cost vitamins from countries where facilities and processes may leave a lot to be desired. When you can get U.S.-produced MAX-B12 for about the same price, the choice is easy.

MAX-B12 Advantage #5
A Surprising Low Cost for a Premium-Grade Supplement

How affordable is it? You can get MAX-B12 for as little as $7.95 per bottle for 90 lozenges (a one-month supply) for the finest-grade, U.S.-produced methylcobalamin in the superior lozenge form. That’s 9-cents-per-serving affordable!

Add in FREE SHIPPING and no tax and you’re looking at an amazing deal — especially when you consider how much support MAX-B12 provides.

We Stand Behind MAX-B12 With
Our 365-Day Money-Back Guarantee

I take MAX-B12 daily, so I know it provides faster and better results than any other B12 I’ve tried, and I’ve tried plenty. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

But the choice is yours to make. That’s why I invite you to see for yourself risk-free what this premium-grade B12 can do. You can take it for up to one year and still get a full refund if you don’t like it. Return your purchase, even empty bottles, and I’ll send you your money back. It’s that simple.
