Hunting and fishing opportunities are many, as is wildlife viewing on trails, on the Elk Scenic Drive or at an Osprey viewing platform.

Have you heard the BzZzZz on

Bee Pollen The secret is out on the hottest weight loss capsule available! If you haven’t heard the BzZzZ around town, where have you been?? Zi Xiu Tang Bee Pollen Capsules are an all-natural herbal diet supplement that requires NO CHANGE IN DIET AND NO EXERCISE!! Most people are losing 10-20 lbs in one bottle! These pills aren’t available just anywhere. BeeXtreme, LLC has them available online with free shipping* (, Monaco “an intimate boutique” (335 West Long Ave. DuBois), Amy Straub’s Hair Salon (Main St. Falls Creek), Sun Spot Tanning and Fitness (Main St. Reynoldsville), and Denise’s Alterations (West Main St. Sykesville). BeeXtreme also delivers to you on Fridays! So how does this product work? And can it really be this easy?? Yes! These pills use a 3 part system to help your body effectively lose weight and keep it off. Part I: Elimination of Fat Through Thermo Genesis: Are you cold ALL THE TIME? This condition could be keeping those pounds right on you! Through the thermo genesis process, your body is heated from the inside out, increasing your metabolism, as well as your ability to sweat. In addition, this allows your body to go into instant metabolic function. If you start sweating more often it means the product is working not to be confused with a hot ash t is important to notice these effects tend to get stronger the longer you are on the product Think of it this way… Did you ever wonder why hibernating animals don’t freeze to death? The answer is thermo genesis.

a t eto ification o the olon an igesti e ystem This product offers total cleansing of the digestive system by utili ing insoluble fiber from all the ingredients, allowing for the product to provide a natural laxative that also removes some toxins and parasites. This process takes place approximately the first two-three weeks you are on the product. Part III: The pH Balancing: One of the biggest misconceptions is that fat is kept on the body due to the fact the body is starving. Now, fat is kept on the body due to the body being very acidic. The more acid your body produces, the more fat your body needs. Why? The body wraps the acid in the fat, and stores it into the body's fat pockets, protecting the body from the harmful effects of the acid. Fat is created for survival. Yet, the body is triggered for fat accumulation once it reaches a certain pH level. To make the body feel differently, this product changes the pH of the body, which does two things. First, the body stops and reverses fat absorption and then changes to fat burning, since it now believes it has too much. The second thing that happens is the increased fat burn rate also increases the metabolic levels of the body, making the metabolism go through the roof!

Weight Loss Capsules?? Energy is no longer an issue ome people notice an increased energy level after the first day of taking this product. y using this product you will benefit from the same effects as those who utili e the pH diet and run around finding all the right foods to fit the diets guidelines. ll you have to do is take two pills in the morning with water, and go about your day! Water is key for the product to work. It is recommended that you consume at least half of your body weight in ounces of water daily. For example, a person weighing 140 lbs should consume at least 70 ounces of water a day. Also this pill works off the fatty processed foods we consume every day. Eating 4-6 small meals a day or “grazing” throughout the day is recommended. Although Zi Xiu Tang Bee Pollen works for about 90% of consumers, there is still that lingering 10% who will not have success with it, whether it be metabolism, health issues, not consuming enough water, or inconsistency with the pills. The good news is NEW YOU launched on July 4, 2013 and ones who are using this pill are also seeing fantastic results!!

What is NEW YOU? New You has been years in the making, containing all natural herbs like Zi Xiu Tang, New You’s main ingredient is Garcinia Cambogia. Through effectively combining traditional Chinese herbs, (old and new) New You is the latest break-through in the all-natural herbal diet supplement world!! New You produces weight loss results in those individuals who have not seen results in other supplements as well as those who had initial weight loss with other products and then stopped losing. New You is Safe, Convenient, and It Works!! Dr. Oz just did a part special on this herb and the benefits of taking it for weight loss and more!!!!!!
