  1. Tap into your body's natural and preferred energy source

    If you didn't think this was possible before, I'm here to tell you that you can
    power through your 3 p.m. slump without making another pot of coffee. You can
    tackle projects around the yard without hiring a contractor. And you can take
    your grandkids on a day trip to the zoo without crashing after visiting the

    All you have to do is tap into your body's natural and preferred energy source.

    You see...

    Most energy drinks contain caffeine or other stimulants. This is a major
    roadblock, I know. You do want more energy...but you don't want to take a

    And the good news is, you don't need to -- because there are ways to give your
    muscles more of what they naturally need...

    Super-fuel "cranks your engine"

    In 2009, scientists recruited a small but select group of bodybuilders to take 10
    grams of an all-natural super-fuel for 30 days. They also followed a weight
    training regimen designed to increase lean muscle mass.

    This super-fuel substance is not a stimulant, like caffeine. It's a natural
    substance found in each and very one of your cells. That's why non-meat heads
    like you and me need it! Plus, your body uses it for energy metabolism. This
    substance also forms the primary building block of adenosine triphosphate

    ATP is the preferred source of energy for your skeletal muscles and heart tissue.
    So the more ATP available, the happier your muscles and heart are likely to be.
    The only problem with ATP energy is that your body quickly depletes it.

    But this super-fuel helps replenish ATP...

    And after just 30 days, the elite body builders who took this natural super-fuel
    noticed a distinct difference in their workouts. In fact, the results suggested
    that these already physically superior men increased their total work capacity
    and bench press just four short weeks!

    Now, I'm no body builder and couldn't keep up with these elite athletes at the
    gym even if I tried. I like to stay in shape but I'm certainly not a heavy-
    lifting gym rat. I know you probably aren't either.

    But energy is energy.

    So just imagine what it can do for you during a stroll around the neighborhood...
    or shopping with friends... or working in the yard!

    Raw energy -- without the let down

    You'll find this all-natural super-fuel in each and every serving of NorthStar
    Nutritional's energy drink called Vital Power. In fact, Vital Power contains 2.5
    g of this super-fuel.

    Plus, unlike many power drinks, Vital Power doesn't contain caffeine or other
    stimulants. It doesn't even contain sugar. It contains the all-natural sweetener
    Stevia. It's sweet, but it won't cause a sugar crash.

    Better yet, you don't even have to hit the gym to feel its affects!

    Plus, Vital Power contains another type of fuel that may...

    Enhance physical performance and EXPLOSIVE POWER!

    You see, red grapes contain key antioxidants that may help protect cells from
    exercise-induced oxidative damage. So your recovery after a big day of activity
    may go a little easier.

    You see, these antioxidants flood your muscles and appear to help:

    • Wipe out free radicals

    • Promote muscle recovery after exercise

    • Increase vitamin E in the blood, a powerful antioxidant

    • Protect muscles from exercise-induced damage

    All of this means Vital Power can help you play on the beach all day long with
    the grandkids... and still be ready to do it all over again tomorrow!

    In fact, my cousin Fenton, a body builder and trainer in his early 60s, loves
    Vital Power. At 6' 3'' and 238 lbs, Fenton can bench 290 to 300 pounds. Plus, he
    can flat dumbbell press 80-85 lbs. He does three sets of ten of these bad boys.

    Fenton wrote me recently to say that Vital Power has rocked his world:

    When I first starting using this, I mixed it with a bottle of
    water and drank it before the workout. Not much happened, but I
    did notice a slight elevation of energy.

    After about a week, I decided to drink it while I was working

    And BAM!

    It was like I was shot out of a cannon. All I felt was energy and
    more power during my workouts using this mixture. I can lift more
    weight and more sets than before. I got guys now asking what
    I'm on and where can they get it.

    Plus, remember Vital Power does not contain stimulants. Fenton noticed this key
    difference right away. He said, "The one thing about this power that really
    turned me on was it had NO SIDE EFFECTS. No caffeine rush. No jitters. Just raw

    As I told you earlier, I hate the gym. It's torture for me. I like being outside,
    so I'd much rather hit the trails or play a game of tennis. And since using Vital
    Power myself, I've noticed that my energy throughout the day is much steadier. No
    3 p.m. slump. Plus, I have more endurance to start a project around the house
    late in the day.

    It's so simple. Just sprinkle a packet of Vital Power in your water or over ice.
    It goes to work helping fuel you through your day and keep you going until

    P.S. Better yet, you can try Vital Power RISK-FREE for a whopping 120 days! I know
    you'll like Vital Power as much as Fenton does. But if you don't, simply return
    any unused packets and we'll promptly refund your money, less shipping.

  2. Vitamin D use skyrockets in U.S.

    This week, I read that 27 percent of Americans now take vitamin D. That‘s up from 16 percent just last year. And while I‘d like to hear that every American takes 5,000 IU of vitamin D, I‘m glad to hear that at least we‘re making progress.

    Vitamin D is critically important to your health. In fact, recent research suggests that vitamin D affects more than 200 of your genes. Over the years I‘ve written about it plenty as it relates to:

    • Stronger muscles
    • Decreased Parkinson‘s disease risk
    • Stronger immune health
    • Younger bones
    • Lowered risk of type-2 diabetes, heart attack, stroke, as well as colon and breast cancer
    • Fewer urinary tract infections
    • Improved digestion
    • Happier moods

    So if you haven‘t yet joined the vitamin D bandwagon, now‘s the time to hop on. Go for up to 5,000 IU of vitamin D3 (the form of vitamin D most readily absorbed by the body). You can also get vitamin D into your diet by eating more eggs (naturally found in yolks) and fatty fish such as salmon, tuna, and sardines.

    Lastly, make sure to have your vitamin D levels checked with your annual blood work. Ideally, you want your levels between 50-70 ng/mL.

  3. Vitamin D = girl power!

    Following up on last week’s Guide to Good Health, I thought I’d mention another new study out this month highlighting the importance of good ole vitamin D, especially for young girls. A research team from England measured vitamin D levels in 99 girls between the ages 12 and 14. Turns out that almost 75 percent of the young girls were deficient in vitamin D. The remaining 25 percent had adequate levels. The researchers then put all the girls through a series of tests to measure their muscle strength and stamina. Not surprisingly, the girls with low vitamin D performed badly on the tests. On the other hand, the girls getting enough vitamin D did great. They demonstrated significantly greater muscle strength and stamina than their counterparts. Just imagine the next 50 years for these young girls, already vitamin D deficient, already physically impaired. It’s not hard to connect the dots and see how a lifetime of deficiency can lead to major problems. If you have a young girl in the family, do her a favor…make sure she spends 30 minutes a day in the sun (without sunblock). She’ll get 10,000 IUs of vitamin D from it. Plus, she’ll certainly have more natural “girl power”!
