Friday 8.31.12

We are excited to announce that we just received our first shipment of Pure Pharma products. As most of you know, we only recommend a handful of supplements. And the reality is, you can’t supplement your way out of a bad diet. So we don’t get excited about supplements very often.

Pure Pharma only offers 3 products – O3, M3 and D3 – all designed to work together.

Their O3 is a high quality fish oil product in a soft gel. If you are already taking SFH liquid, there is no reason to switch. This product is ideal for those that are a little squeamish about the liquid. Omega 3 is important for preventing/ reducing inflammation, accelerating recovery, supporting cognitive function and cardiovascular health.

The M3 product is a magnesium/ zinc supplement. Magnesium and zinc are important in the process of rebuilding muscle after exercise. Magnesium supports muscle and nerve function and deficiencies can lead to asthma, diabetes, osteoporosis and perhaps even depression.

D3 is essential for calcium absorption for strong, healthy bones. The sun is our main source of D3 but because of our lifestyles, most of us do not get enough sun exposure. Some experts believe that most Americans are significantly deficient in D3. D3 deficiency is associated with muscle weakness, osteoporosis, bone fractures, insulin resistance, cognitive impairment and lowered immune defense. There is also some suggestion that increasing D3 levels may improve quality of sleep.

If you have any questions about what supplements are right for you, talk to a Coach. Check out Pure Pharma online.
