*NEW* Metabol Complex from MediHerb | Metabolism, Boosted

Let’s be honest. Unless you’re one of those rare folks blessed by a fast-metabolism, you’d probably like to optimize your body's fat burning mechanism and support efficient metabolism of sugars – both for you and your patients. The question is: How?

Announcing MediHerb's NEW Metabol Complex, a unique combination of Black Cumin seed, Bitter Melon fruit, Cinnamon bark and concentrated extract made from Fenugreek seed. This synergistic formula will rev up your metabolism in powerful ways*. Order at 800.662.9134 or visit spnatural.com, item #M1610, SLP $71.00.
BLACK CUMIN | This tiny black seed has traditionally been used to help the liver metabolize fat and relieve mild bloating and flatulence.

BITTER MELON | Bitter melon’s bitter energy promotes digestive function, clears metabolic waste, and helps the body to metabolize fats and sugars.

CINNAMON | Quality cinnamon bark is known to help generate heat and relieve symptoms of cold, sluggish indigestion, and promote vitality. That’s always a good thing.

FENUGREEK | With its strong and penetrating qualities, Fenugreek seed supports the pancreas in clearing metabolic waste. Also helps the body metabolize macronutrients.

*NEW* E-Z Mg | Plant-Based Magnesium

Magnesium is a major mineral that is key to many body processes. As a co-factor for more than 300 enzyme systems (1), magnesium plays a role in blood glucose management, nerve conduction, energy production, and much more (1,2,3). In fact, research NOW shows that higher levels of magnesium has been associated with a decreased risk of diabetes and metabolic syndrome (4).
Enter our latest product, E-Z Mg! Developed to support the dietary magnesium intake of patients, E-Z Mg is made from two key ingredients – Swiss chard (beet leaf) and buckwheat – both grown on the Standard Process certified organic farm. The best source of magnesium is naturally occurring and obtained from the diet. Plant-based magnesium, like that found in E-Z Mg, is considered ideal as it consists of a collection of multiform magnesium.* Available in convenient and portable stick packs, E-Z Mg is certified USDA organic, and can be mixed with water, blended in a smoothie, or even sprinkled on foods. Order at 800.661.9234 or visit spnatural.com, item #3935, SLP $58.00.
