Brain Power and Awesome Natique Testimonials
We don't usually refer to the personal testimonials given on the Health Show, even though they are always the crowning glory of the calls. But when a testimonial has the potential to provide marketing tips as well as sell the product, we feel it needs to be mentioned. So here goes: I shared with Meme that a good way to market the Natique Firming Lift would be to do a "half-facial" as a demonstration. Well, being the go-getter that she is she went right out and tried it on her sister! The results: Her sister and she were totally amazed! They said that the "Firming Lift" side looked 10 years younger. Try this amazing demonstration on yourself; then, use it to build your Natique business.
Now for the conference call!
MG: Tom are you there?
TM: I sure am Meme, and I am ready to give that free product! Tonight's free product is our incredible children's Blitz Chewable multivitamin. This scientific blend of target nutrients includes "helping nutrients" to offer maximum bioavailability and activity to this powerful antioxidant rich multivitamin/mineral. This unique formulation includes powerful enzymes to assist with the absorption, digestion and delivery of the nutrients. These enzymes also provide for cellular health and energy. To give your child a healthy advantage this cold and flu season give them Blitz Chewable.

MG: Tom is going to share some exciting news about how to boost your brainpower, how to avoid some of the mental decline that many expect as they age. You youngsters need to listen too! For we all know that prevention is the key to good health. That is what we emphasize at Vitamark ? good health! We do not claim that our products cure, treat or prevent any diseases. We say that our products support the various systems of the body so that the body can heal itself! Our goal is to educate you to some amazing benefits of taking a multivitamin that contains a good B complex , Vitamin C and E and N Acetyl L Cysteine (NAC) ? all found in our premier Anti-Aging product , Vita-Che. Our VitaOne young/healthy adult formula) also contains all four in supportive amounts. Blitz Chewable, our childen's formula, contains a B-complex and Vitamins C and E ? also all in supportive amounts.
TM: Before I tell our listener's how to hopefully avoid the mental decline of aging with products that should already be a part of their daily basics, I would like to encourage them to share how Vitamark products are changing their lives. Who would like to be first?
MG: Yes, who would like to be first to share the incredible health benefit you have received from your Vitamark products and get free product too? Start by saying who you are and where you are from.
TESTIMONIALS (not recorded)
MG: Thanks for sharing! Now for that amazing educational information on how we can protect ourselves from mental decline.
TM: One of the most common questions we hear from those maturing adults (of whom there are a great many and are a huge market for all on this call), is "What can I do to prevent the ravaging of my mental functioning as I grow older?"
There is a way to guard against this mental type of debilitation by making dietary choices that reduce homocysteine. Yes, thiscomponent that is so detrimental to your heart health is also detrimental to mental health. So, these dietary and supplemental guidelines should do double duty for your heart and mental health.
MG: I understand that there are studies that show that elevated levels of the amino acid homocysteine have been linked with Alzheimer's disease and dementia. So, it makes sense to try and reduce those levels in the body.
TM: You are so right Meme. Research has demonstrated that foods and supplements rich in vitamins B6, B12, and folic acid help reduce homocysteine levels.
MG: Is there research to support the role these vitamins play in the reduction of homocysteine and support for mental functioning?
TM: There sure is! Researchers from the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University conducted a study of more than 320 healthy older men from a Veterans Affairs study on aging. The criteria had all of the men complete a food-frequency questionnaire, and have blood drawn to measure B vitamins and homocysteine. Then, for the next three years, the men took periodic tests to monitor cognitive function.
MG: The study concluded that: there was an association between high levels of homocysteine and a decline in recall memory. High levels of folate were significantly linked to verbal fluency. Men with elevated folate levels also had less decline in spatial copying; a drawing test that measures the brain's ability to understand and reproduce geometric figures.
TM: Pretty telling; but that's just one study linking low B vitamin intake and homocysteine to mental alertness decline. The USDA (US Dept of Agriculture) wrote in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition that a low B vitamin concentration and a high level of homocysteine in the body could predict cognitive decline.
MG: Wow! Vitamins B6, B12, and folate certainly do seem helpful to maintaining healthy mental functioning due to their ability to help metabolize homocysteine. What foods are they in and what do I do if my food supply is lacking or my body can't absorb all the nutrition necessary?
TM: These nutrients can be found in asparagus, lentils, chickpeas, most varieties of beans, and especially spinach and other leafy green vegetables. But, you are right, Meme, many people don't absorb B vitamins well or their food supply is deficient; so, in addition to food sources a good vitamin/mineral supplement that includes the B-complex vitamins is often required to lower homocysteine levels.
MG: That is just one reason for Vita-Che being our anti-aging product of choice
TM: Right you are, Meme. I have to mention also that Vita One and our Blitz chewable for children certainly do contain supportive levels of these important nutrtients ? sufficient to support their respective age-level needs. Vita-Che contains a full complement of B vitamins per serving, including 800 mcg of folate. The perfect combination for those approaching the "Fun Years" with its challenges. Vita-Che also contains another vital nutrient in the homocysteine war, N Acety L Cysteine (NAC). There are studies that report this antioxidant amino acid may lower homocysteine levels.
TM: Like the study in 2001 that showed how NAC improved cognitive function in patients with early symptoms of Alzheimer's disease. This was a 24-week study involving 47 subjects. Those who took NAC showed improvement in nearly every area measured, without experiencing negative side effects.
MG: I understand that once homocysteine levels are brought into line, there are other nutrients that may offer protection for mental functioning.
TM: Right again, Meme. In fact, there are two studies from Johns Hopkins University that show how two key vitamins may support cognitive function.
In the first study which involved almost 580 subjects, 60 years or older, were followed for more than seven years. They were given a diet high in vitamin E, including, spinach, eggs, nuts, seeds, avocados, tomatoes, peaches and blackberries. The diet was associated with a significant reduction of mental decline associated with Alzheimer's risk. Intake of dietary vitamin C was also found helpful.
In yet another Johns Hopkins study they interviewed more than 4,700 subjects aged 65 or older. They monitored supplement intake (C and E) as well as the incidence of dementia and Alzheimer's disease, from 1995 to 1997(phase 1), and again from 1998 to 2000 (phase 2). After evaluating the data, the first phase showed that those who took supplements of vitamins C and E combined had a 78 percent lower risk for Alheimer's Disease. In the second phase, the percentage dropped to 64, but still indicated a significant level of protection.
When E was combined with not just C; but a multivitamin containing C, Alzheimer's risk was even lower.
Certainly these studies show good reason for including a good multivitamin/mineral that includes a B-complex, Vitamins C and E and N Acetyl L Cysteine to address mental functioning throughout your life.
MG: Thanks for sharing the benefits of these amazing nutrients. It is good to have information that reinforces the great nutrients that Vitamark uses in its fantastic formulas.
TM: Vitamark always uses the best to protect your health. Would anyone like to share any other life changing testimonials before we say goodnight?
MG: Thanks all of you for sharing your testimonials tonight ? tell everyone to join us next month for the January Health Show. Tom close us out.
TM: Let's all remember, this is the day the Lord has made ? let us rejoice and be glad in it! Until next month!
