We have done many shows on Source Naturals® , so again this year Our TV Show Host: Margie Rey interviewed their reps, and this time Jeremy and Ryan Encinas really taught us a-lot:

Source Naturals® was created in 1982 by C.E.O. Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. Ira is also the founder of Threshold Enterprises, that is the Parent Company of Source Naturals® At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned—for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life–simply didn’t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula®, now the industry’s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force® Multiple, Mega-Kid™ Multiple, Inflama-Rest™, the Skin Eternal™ line, Higher Mind™, Essential Enzymes™, Male Response™, and more.

Source Naturals’ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas® help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, they evaluate the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provide targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Their line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single-entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Their nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today’s Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals’ Strategy for WellnessSM is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.

Right after we were done doing our news segment at the booth for Threshold’s Source Naturals- our news crew went right over to the booth for Jarrow Formulas- where our TV Show Host: Margie Rey interviewed their territory sales and national education manager: Hillary Nitschke – who really lived up to her job title and gave everyone an education on Anti-aging starting from within!

Jarrow Formulas® was founded in 1977 in Los Angeles by Jarrow L. Rogovin. At the time, Jarrow would personally deliver orders of his supplements to the doorsteps of local health food stores. His early formulations earned the company a reputation for producing innovative and efficacious formulations at a time when the health benefits of dietary supplements were just beginning to be recognized. Jarrow believed that well-crafted dietary supplement formulations based on sound scientific research data had the potential to promote optimal health. Since that time, Jarrow Formulas® has grown from a handful of products to hundreds of nutritional formulations, many of which were firsts for the dietary supplement industry. Jarrow Formulas’ original goal has always remained the same: To design superior dietary supplements that help empower individuals to take charge of their own health.

For over 10 years our news company has been searching for health products that can actually extend the number of years in your life- in the “Anti-aging ” category. Our health experts have searched the 100s of aisles at the Natural Products Expo West, and many other Health, Beauty, and Fitness related Conventions.

Living up to the “Anti-aging” name is a fantastic company called Life Extension. One of the primary benefits of life extension is the potential to extend both lifespan and health span – the period of life spent in good health. By slowing down the aging process and reducing the risk of age-related diseases, life-extension treatments could allow individuals to live longer, healthier lives!

NAD+ is an enzyme critical to healthy cellular energy production—but our levels dip with age. So, you can fight back against Father Time with this age-defying formula, which supports your NAD+ levels and promotes the health of your heart, mind and cells. The benefits of NAD+ Cell Regenerator™ and Resveratrol Elite™:  it fights general fatigue by promoting youthful cellular energy production, and it supports overall longevity by encouraging heart, mind & cell health, and is an ultra-bioavailable formula. Our news staff all agree that the large variety and assortment of supplements that Life Extension has- can actually help to add many more useful and productive years to your life. To see for yourself all the supplements they sell, check out:

Margie got the opportunity to meet some great people, and interviewed the Chief Marketing & Sales Officer: Beverly Takeuchi, for BioNatureHealth Inc. (BNH), who had some great health products that included some amazing ones that will help your eyes, which you will learn in this interview on this show.

We got used to feeling half well. Half asleep, half bloated, half energetic, and half well. We are not sick enough to see doctors. Sometimes even when we go to see doctors, we can’t take long term medication for chronic half-well conditions. We look to the past to find an alternative way of restoring ourselves. BNH is here to answer the call, innovating the ancestors’ formulas into convenient ways for self-care. 

How to Take Care of Your Itchy, Red, or Swollen Eyes. Likely Causes: 

Allergies:  When we have allergies, our body makes histamine. This makes your eye vessels bigger and irritates nerves. In 2018, a study in Nature Medicine revealed that our eyes mostly itch in the white part (conjunctiva) rather than the clear front (cornea) because of specific nerve fibers in the eye that trigger the itch. Symptoms: Itchy, red eyes with a runny nose or sneezing. Triggers: Pollen, pet fur, mold, dust mites, makeup, eye drops.  

Dry Eyes: You can have dry, itchy, red, or swollen eyes even without allergies. If your tear film isn’t right—either evaporating too fast or not enough tears are made—your eyes can get dry and irritated. SymptomsDry, itchy, swollen eyes. Cause: Improper tear film, leading to dryness and irritation.

Other Likely Causes:  Eczema: Can lead to itchy eyes if rash is near the eyes, Blepharitis: Causes inflamed eyelids, leading to discomfort, Contact Lens Infection: From improper use or care, Medication Reactions: From certain medicines like antihistamines or birth control pills.

Self-Care Solutions:  Allergies: Use anti- allergy eye drops, or allergy medications. Moisture: Apply eye drops several times per day. This might last for a while, Cool Relief: Press a cool, damp cloth or ice-pack on your eyes, Rinse: Gently with cold water or saline. Don’t rub,! Humidity: Increase to ease dry eyes, Use our Eye Empower supplement: See details here.

How to Fall Asleep Fast – #1 Tip: Boredom: Boredom is the mother of performance killers. But here it may be the best way to help you to forgo the excitement of the day and fall asleep fast. Here are a few tips to use this concept to help you to fall asleep. 1. Get into routines that are just something you wish to do or need to do, but not exciting, Learn a foreign language by listening to the language lesson, Listen to some part of history, philosophy, or other dense information with lights out, Memorize a few things that are important for you but you are not willing to do during the day. 2. Before bed time, try to do the least desirable and repetitive things: Review your account balances and pay bills, Getting next day ready by picking out the things to wear, organize the brief case or backpack, pack the lunch, and list the to-do items, Read the things that you think will help you to grow but not exactly exciting. Those Chicken Soup for the Soul type of self-help stuff are the best way to put you to sleep. Anything that sounds good but takes no brain to digest is the best material. 3. Distract yourself from anything that bothered you during the day. Watching news, talking to friends, or working out are all the good pre-plays before bed time that relieve burdens off your system. Slowing down and removing yourself from excitement are effective in getting you into the bedtime mood. If nothing helps, you may want to consider some natural non-habit forming supplements such as Speed Sleep here.  To learn more, and order these great products now go to:

Margie learned a lot from Rochelle about Collagen at the Better Your Health – booth, and you can see that interview on this show. In this interview you will see how women lose more Collagen than men as they age, and what you can do about it. You can take care of all your nutritional supplement needs in one place with Better Your Health. Making it easy to build daily health routines for the whole family. You need to choose the right collagen supplement to support healthy skin, hair, nails, and joints. Some brands feature collagen products within a broader portfolio of dietary supplements, while others focus exclusively on collagen and its benefits. And some brands use only specific types of collagen in their formulations, while others combine multiple types for a wider range of benefits. NeoCell is one of the leading brands of collagen since 1998. For over two decades, NeoCell has been formulating premium-quality supplements backed by science to help support your body’s own collagen production and nourish your inner beauty. As one of the top-selling brands of collagen supplements, with products distributed in more than 20 countries worldwide, they know what it takes to promote the strong foundation your body needs and feed your natural beauty.

Their Super Collagen powder, with type I and type III collagen, was among an elite group of winners in the Better Nutrition magazine 2018 Best of Natural Beauty Awards: Top 10 Classic Products. In the words of the Better Nutrition editors, “These are the hardworking products we keep coming back to year after year.” Even more recently, their Collagen Protein Peptides powder, which combines type I collagen, type III collagen, hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and amla fruit extract, was chosen by Shape magazine editors as a winner of the Shape Beauty Awards 2019: Best Body Products, and in an article featured in Harper’s Bazaar magazine titled, “Secrets to Thick, Shiny, Hair” New York dermatologist Macrene Alexiades-Armenakas gave a shout-out to supplement your daily juice or water with NeoCell Super Collagen powderNeoCell products have also been featured on ABC’s Good Morning America and CBS’s We Are Austin, as well as a number of other popular health and beauty sites.

NeoCell delivers a full line of collagen peptides plus dietary supplements to support healthy skin, hair, nails, joints, and collagen production. Their products include collagen powder, capsules, gummies, and more. You can view a list of their bestsellers or shop all products here. At NeoCell, they know there is more beauty within you because they see you differently. They look past the superficial and see beyond what others see. Others may tell you to conceal. To cover up. Or to mask. They believe you should do the exact opposite. We believe you should reveal more of who you are. Boost your collagen intake and feed your inner strength and outer beauty. Because you—your unfiltered self—is truly beautiful!

NeoCell Super Collagen Plus Vitamin C tablets nourish your skin at its core and supports healthy collagen formation for healthy skin, hair and nails. These collagen capsules give your body the building blocks it needs to create its own collagen and other proteins like keratin, which is found in nails and hair!

A healthy juice drink that we discovered at this convention, is from China: BOSUN NFC MULBERRY JUICE. NFC stands for “Not from Concentrate” meaning that the entire manufacturing process- never concentrates the juice, and it does not put additives in it like other Juice companies do, therefore it is more fresh and you get more healthy nutrients from the juices!

The Mulberry juice is pressed after cleaning the fresh original fruit, and then directly filled after instant sterilization without concentration and recovery. It retains the original fresh flavor and nutrition to maximum. There are many things in it that improves your health, supports your immune system, has anti- radicals in it to fight off toxins in your body, and is great for your liver!

There are many benefits of mulberry juice. Studies in people are needed before more conclusions can be made, but research to date shows some positive links between mulberries and several health benefits: They help to regulate blood sugar, They’re good for heart health, They’re helpful for increasing metabolism, has lots of great nutrition, and They’re helpful to gut health!

The NPEW Convention is SO BIG, using the all 3 floors of the entire Anaheim Convention Center, North & South Halls, and the Hilton & Marriott Hotels, so our news team needed a hotel right next to the Anaheim Convention Center to carry around all of our big and heavy video camera equipment, and have enough time to make it over to as many of the 3300 booths as possible to produce some great shows on this convention, so we wanted to give a special thanks to the Best Western Stovall’s Inn, who came through at the last second and got us a room directly across the street from the Convention Center, and they even give free breakfast buffets to all the guests:

So we like to tell you about their 4 Hotel properties that are all near the Anaheim Convention center, Disneyland: for more information go to, Angel Stadium, and so many more attractions in Anaheim and Orange County!

The Fabulous History of Stovall’s Hotels: The Stovall’s family of hotels have surrounded the magic of the Disneyland Park since 1964. Hotel owner and operator Al Stovall wanted an out of this world experience for hotel guests coming to Disneyland, and he delivered! With flying saucers, spacemen and aliens adorning the hotel lobby, to a rocket van that would pick up guests from the airport, no detail was overlooked. The sixties were coming to life! America was just entering the space race, skirts were getting shorter and shorter, and in a small town called Anaheim Walt Disney’s masterpiece was coming to life! Each hotel had its own space age feel and name! There was the fabulous “Inn of Tomorrow” (now Stovall’s Inn), the amazing “Space Age Lodge,” (now Pavilions Hotel), the “Cosmic Age Hotel,” “The Galaxy Hotel” and the “Apollo Inn.” In the 70’s Disneyland was coming to life! Families would flock to Anaheim for a once in a lifetime experience, and the Anaheim hotels were ready to meet and exceed their expectations. Their hotels were state of the art, with color TVs, direct dial phones and much more. Their “Rocket van” would pick up people from the Orange County airport and “jet” them back. In the 80’s New wave music, strange hairstyles, MTV was born, and the eighties were alive and kicking! To embrace this lively and hip decade, many of their Anaheim hotels were re-modeled with a “Miami Vice” feel and look. Decorative neon could be found in their lobby areas. They even had a modern computer at the front desk connected to other Best Western hotels!

Today, their 4 Best Western Plus hotels have been completely remodeled with brand new guest rooms, upgraded amenities, HD tvs with movie channels, free in room WIFI, and the comfort you have come to expect from Best Western. Contactless check in, free daily breakfast, fitness centers, and a great nights sleep await your arrival! For reservations: 800-528-1234 or: for:
