Why Isagenix® is Your Anti-Aging Solution


Isagenix Nutritional Cleansing and Replenishing™ products help eliminate harmful toxins and impurities from the body that can accelerate the aging process. These products also replenish the body with crucial nutrients for optimal health. The Rejuvity and other anti-aging products also address the need for optimal cellular nutrition that ultimately creates a new level of wellness, vitality, and youthful appearance from the inside out.


The skin is largely an indication of how the body is aging. If the body has been abused, neglected and malnourished, then the skin will reflect this. However, if the body’s cells, tissues and organs are protected from harmful pollutants and replenished with crucial nutrients, the skin will reflect this level of health by appearing vibrant, glowing and youthful.


The anti-aging products in the Rejuvity and IsaDermix® lines do not use any harsh, irritating chemicals or compounds, including phthalates or parabens. Other common products that include harsh compounds often require downtime and may damage the skin further.


Ageless Renewal Serum and other anti-aging skin products help minimize the appearance of deep wrinkles, support collagen production, improve elasticity and tone, and increase firmness by helping the skin remember what it has forgotten as we age.


In addition to the superior skin care, Rejuvity and other Isagenix Nutritional Cleansing and Replenishing products slow biological aging of the entire body, leading to enhanced energy and a new level of vitality and improved overall wellness.


All of the ingredients in Rejuvity and the other Isagenix anti-aging and replenishing products are supported by scientific research. In addition, many of the company’s own products - including Ageless Renewal Serum - have been specifically investigated in scientific trials with extremely positive results. A recent trial on Ageless Renewal Serum showed a 92% increase in the overall improvement of the skin, and the CoQ10 used in Ageless Actives has been shown to be 800% more absorbable than standard powder forms used in other products.


Isagenix prides itself in using only the highest quality ingredients. With Rejuvity and other anti-aging product lines, this commitment to quality continues.


All of the Isagenix product lines boast unmatched ingredient profiles you can’t find in any other product. These include the growth factors, polypeptides and actives in Ageless Renewal Serum, the lipid-based CoQ10 in Ageless Actives, and many more.


The Isagenix Quality, Regulatory, Technology, Science (QRTS) teams use the latest scientific research to create life-changing products, thus solidifying its position as an industry leader.


Isagenix is the creator of the Replenishing product category. Its anti-aging product lines continue to solidify this position as the company continues to develop new products within this category.

Dog Hates Bathtub DEAR PAW'S CORNER: My German shepherd, "Silky," is 10 years old and has developed hip dysplasia, which makes her pretty uncomfortable. She avoids slippery floors and she hates the tub, but I need to give her a bath. Any way I can do this better to keep her comfortable? -- Jack T., Oklahoma City DEAR JACK: There are a few ways to help Silky stay comfortable while being bathed. First, try placing a large, wet towel in the tub that she can stand on to gain traction. Lift her into the highsided tub rather than make her jump in. Shepherds are large dogs, so if need be, work with a second person and tandem lift her, with one of you cradling under her chest and the other cradling her midsection and then tucking the other arm between her back legs and supporting her belly. A step-in shower is an even better option, if you have one. Again, put down a wet towel so that she feels secure standing or sitting. In warm weather, you could set up an inflatable kiddie pool and fill it with warm water. This gives big dogs enough room to sit or even lie down during their bath, and they can just walk into it over the low sides. During the bath itself it's important to work fast. Keep Silky's collar and leash on so you can

hold her still as you wet her down (either with warm water scooped in a cup or using a sprayer attachment), add soap (only soap formulated for use on dogs), then rinse. Talk soothingly through the whole process. Once complete, lift her out of the tub onto a nonslip rug and towel-dry her fur, then give her lots of praise and a treat.

Gulf War Syndrome, Diet Sodas Linked?

Gulf War Syndrome is often a mystery to the medical profession because there are so many varieties of symptoms. What happens in one veteran doesn’t happen in another. Even the source isn’t completely clear. Was it from the vaccines given? Bug sprays? Depleted uranium dust? How about the oil-well fires?

Or was it from something completely innocuous -- the diet sodas? Aspartame is a sweetener that’s used in diet sodas. Cooks realized long ago that using it in recipes was a bad idea because the sweetener breaks down at high temperatures. What happened to all those cases of drinks over in Iraq and Afghanistan? Were they kept chilled the whole way? Not likely. A better scenario is that they sat on the hot tarmac before being transported to a hot storage area. The temperature at which Aspartame breaks down in a mere 85 degrees F, turning into chemicals such as formaldehyde and formic acid. I’m not a doctor or a researcher, but from reading the studies it looks like there are biologic effects from putting Aspartame in the human body. In the U.K. and Canada, special product labeling is required when the sweetener is used in food.

Is there a link between the ingestion of Aspartame and the symptoms of Gulf War Syndrome? Arguments exist on both sides of the issue. If you want to do your own research, put these all words in an Internet search engine: aspartame methanol formaldehyde formic acid. Look for the scholarly articles, not those a non-medical person has written. If you are suffering with any of the myriad symptoms of Gulf War Syndrome, try cutting Aspartame completely out of your diet for one month and see how you feel. You’ll need to read the ingredients in everything you consume. Write to Freddy Groves in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Almirola Earns Seat With Petty Racing Aric Almirola has a shot to compete full-time at stock car racing's highest level, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. At age 27, he has a chance to prove he can make it in Cup racing after distinguishing himself in the Nationwide and Camping World Truck series. Almirola, who is of Cuban descent and from Tampa, Fla., hasn't competed in Cup since the final race of the 2010 season, when he surprisingly finished fourth in Homestead, Fla. His Cup career consists of 35 races: nine in 2010, eight in '09, 12 in '08 and six in '07. Last year he finished fourth in the Nationwide Series standings, competing in Chevys fielded by JR Motorsports. Now Almirola moves from Nationwide to Cup, from JR to Richard Petty Motorsports and from Chevy to Ford. "Dale (Earnhardt Jr.) said the main reason for him having a Nationwide team was to get guys in the Nationwide car at his shop and to give them an opportunity to go an make a career out of racing in NASCAR," Almirola said. "He gave me a great opportunity to go there and drive the '88' car, and that's led to this opportunity at RPM." Almirola finished second in the Truck standings in 2010, winning twice. He was credited with a Nationwide victory in 2007, though it was Denny Hamlin who took the checkered flag after Almirola started the race. Making the move to Cup will be challenging. "Obviously, it's going to be my first year running fulltime in Cup, so there will be some growing pains," Almirola

said. "I realize that I've got a lot of learning to do. "I don't expect to just go out there and win six races and run for the championship, but I do expect to be competitive. I do expect to run really well on a regular basis." The team recently picked up sponsorship from Smithfield Foods. Last year A.J. Allmendinger piloted the No. 43, finishing 15th in the Cup standings. Allmendinger had 10 finishes in the top 10, one of them in the top five. Almirola's Cup teammate is Marcos Ambrose, who won at Watkins Glen, N.Y. ••• Monte Dutton covers motorsports for The Gaston (N.C.) Gazette. E-mail Monte at © 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

• You’ve probably never heard of the Spanish village of Lijar, located in the south of that country. This village, though, was involved in a nearly 100-year war that lasted well into the 20th century. It seems that in 1883, Alfonso XII, the king of Spain, made a state visit to Paris and received a less-than-royal welcome. Led by mayor Don Miguel Garcia Saez, the citizens of Lijar, after hearing that their monarch had been insulted and possible accosted by mobs, declared war on France. Though there were no casualties -- not even any gunfire -- the war lasted until 1981. That was when the town council ruled that it would end hostilities with France thanks to the warm welcome King Juan Carlos of Spain received in France in 1976.

Yeast Infection Tends to Recur DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I haven’t seen an article about vaginal yeast infections. The doctor gave me an oral antiyeast medicine for it and a cream to apply. In addition, he gave me something to stop the itching. It seemed worse after the treatment, so the doctor gave me five more days of the oral medicine. What would you suggest if it comes back again? Could it be something I am eating or taking? -- N.F. ANSWER: Candida is the name of the yeast responsible for vaginal infections. Itching is a prominent sign. The vaginal lining also often is irritated and painful. Intercourse can be uncomfortable. White patches adhere to the vaginal lining, and there may be a white discharge. Close to 75 percent of all women will experience at least one Candida infection during their life. It has nothing to do with what you eat or take. Somewhere between 20 percent and 50 percent of woman harbor this yeast in their vagina but don’t have any symptoms of it. If these women are put on an antibiotic for an unrelated infection, the vaginal bacteria that keep the population of Candida at small numbers die off. Without those good bacteria, the Candida yeasts reproduce at a rapid rate and lead to symptoms. You were put on a standard treatment for Candida. Those treatments are antiyeast medicines that come as ointments, creams or vaginal suppositories. There are many of them. The oral antiyeast fluconazole (Diflucan) is another approved treatment. Recurrence of this infection is common and hard to abolish. If it happens, longer treatment with vaginal antiyeast medicines coupled with a weekly dose of oral Diflucan for six months is a reasonable action. If that fails, referral to a center that has the capability to check Candida’s sensitivity to antiyeast medication can end the problem. Unproven but popular ways of attacking this infection include eating yogurt with live lactobacillus in it to repopulate the vagina’s normal bacterial population. Another unproven approach is to treat the male partner. It hasn’t been shown that such an approach works, but some experts resort to it. Vaginal infections are discussed at length in the booklet on that topic. To obtain a copy, write: Dr. Donohue -- No. 1203W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada. with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. ••• Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.
