Transform your weight, transform your shape
—Revealing the untold truth about weight loss
Manager Extra (2/1/2005)

In 2004 Nature’s Sunshine introduced the Untold Truth seminars. These training meetings focused on the nutritional deficiencies that are at the root of many common health concerns and reveal the untold truths that can make a difference to Americans’ health. One of the modules that was taught in 2005—Transform Your Weight, Transform Your Shape—specifically revealed the Untold Truth about Weight Loss.

The truth is that our society is overfed yet undernourished. Though we eat a lot, we may be starving nutritionally. Any good weight-management program should begin by making sure your body gets the nutrients it needs to function best. Just like every other Untold Truth module, Revealing the Untold Truth about Weight Loss begins with a nutritional core. NSP core products give your body proper nutrition—which should be the jumping off point for any weight-management program.

The truth is that people experience unhealthy weight gain for different reasons, and no one product or diet fits everyone’s needs. For instance, some people’s weight gain is triggered by emotional concerns. Others have a slower metabolism that contributes to weight problems. Diabetes, stress, hormone levels and toxins also affect weight. Revealing the Untold Truth about Weight Loss gives you the tools you need to determine the root of your weight problems. Armed with this knowledge, you can design a health and weight-management program specifically for you and the factors that contribute to your weight gain.

Whatever the root of your weight concerns or the goals of your weight-management program, Nature’s Sunshine can help. NSP products offer the nutritional and weight-management support you need.

The Core Products —
Healthy Weight Begins Here

Any weight-management program needs to begin with proper nourishment. Too often, dieters eat less without considering what they are putting—or not putting— into their bodies. They often cut out the good with the bad! NSP’s Core Products are the perfect starting point for a complete weight-management program.

Thai-Go™. This delicious liquid supplement features bioflavonoids, antioxidants and xanthones to support most body systems.

Nature’s Three or Psyllium Hulls. Fiber supplements help with proper waste elimination. Fiber also is known to bind fat in the intestinal system.

Bifidophilus Flora Force® or Probiotic Eleven. Friendly flora support a healthy digestive and intestinal system.

Super Omega 3 EPA. Supplement with heart-healthy Omega-3 essential fatty acids—the good fats!

Super Supplemental or VitaWave. A multivitamin ensures that your body is getting adequate amounts of essential vitamins and minerals.

Food Enzymes or Proactazyme Plus®. Enzymes help your body more effectively digest fats, proteins and carbohydrates.

USE NSP'S AUTO SHIP PROGRAM TO SAVE MONEY ON PRODUCTS YOU PURCHASE www.mynsp.com/herbsplus/HabitOfHealth/AutoShip/Intro.aspx

When focusing in on the 6 Core Products most people experience outstanding results. Coupled with More Nutritious Food Choices it can be life changing. Try these 6 products for three months to see how they can help you to better your health. Check out the Autoship Program to save money.

In my own experience with these products:
Foods are being broken down better, so nutrient absorption is maximized. The body absorbs less of the bad fats because they are carried out with the increased fiber. The good fats in the body which helps with vein, artery, connective tissues and skin flexibilty, allows for better fluid transfer throughout the body, and toxin excretion from the body more efficiently through the skin and mucus. Increasing the good flora of Probiotics will help rid the body of toxins through the bowels and thus boost the immune system. With the High ORAC value of the Thai Go free radicals are mopped up and carried away from the healthy cells. With all these great things happening at once the vitamins and minerals will be absorbed and used more efficiently in the body where needed most. As a result I have experienced amazingly better health personally. (Karen Doolan)

Holiday Weight Gain Worries?
Discover Weight Management Help from NSP

The average American gains about one pound during the holiday season. That may not seem like much, but some gain more, and not everyone loses that extra pound. Over the years, these pounds add up.
Nature’s Sunshine offers a wonderful selection of weight-management products that can help you and your customers prevent or get rid of that extra holiday weight.


Dieter’s Cleanse
A Cleanse Not Just for Dieters. Dieter’s Cleanse is a safe, convenient cleansing program for those who want to promote natural, healthy waste elimination and get the most nutrition from their food—an important starting point for any dieter.


Thyroid Activator
Thyroid Activator supports the thyroid gland and contains trace minerals known to be important for human nutrition. This formula contains Irish moss plant, kelp plant, black walnut hulls, parsley herb, watercress herb and sarsaparilla root.


Helps Make Life “Sweet”. SugarReg is a formulation of eight nutrients that help support the body’s effort to maintain levels of blood sugar and insulin that are already within their normal ranges. The levels of these substances help determine how the body stores carbohydrates as fat. SugarReg contains banaba leaf, gymnema extract, bitter melon, nopal fruit, bilberry fruit, fenugreek herb, chromium and vanadium.


Adrenal Support
The adrenal glands are primarily responsible for addressing the effects of emotional, mental and physical stress on the body. This may include increases in body weight. Modern dietary habits can negatively affect the adrenal glands. Adrenal Support contains a blend of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and adaptogenic herbs to support and strengthen your body as it deals with stress.


Nature’s Hoodia Formula™

As a season full of feasts and home-baked goodies winds down, you may find yourself longing for those large meals and spreads of delicious snacks. Nature’s Hoodia Formula can help cut the cravings. Hoodia gordonii has been used for centuries by the San tribesmaen of the Kalahari Desert to reduce hunger. Researchers at the South African national laboratory discovered that when animals were fed this indigenous food, the animals began to lose weight. Scientists theorize that Hoodia affects the brains of laboratory animals by making the stomach feel full and reducing the desire to eat.

Nature’s Hoodia Formula combines Hoodia gordonii with other natural ingredients—Caralluma fimbriata, dry apple cider vinegar, Garcinia cambogia, l-carnitine, gymnema leaves, chromium, marshmallow root and psyllium hulls—that may be a helpful addition to your weight-management efforts.


Nature’s Cortisol Formula™

Festive meals and treats aren’t the only reason weight management is a challenge during the holidays. Researchers have begun to notice a connection between cortisol levels and weight-management indicators, such as calorie consumption and weight gain. Cortisol is a hormone produced in the adrenal glands in response to stress. That means that the holiday rush and the related stress might play a role in those few extra pounds.

Nature’s Cortisol Formula contains Relora® to help the body manage stress and maintain cortisol levels already within the normal range. Other key ingredients help maintain blood glucose levels already within the normal range. Nature’s Cortisol Formula contains Relora, banaba, holy basil, chromium, vanadium, DHEA, decaffeinated green tea extract (60% EGCG), l-theanine and calcium ascorbate.

Cortisol is a hormone produced in the adrenal glands in response to stress. It promotes the formation of glucose, which is used as fuel during stressful situations. Emerging scientific research is exploring the possible link in cortisol levels with abdominal fat storage and calorie consumption.Nature’s

Cortisol Formula combines herbs and supplements to aid in buffering the effects of stress and maintaining cortisol levels that are already within the normal range. This product contains Relora® (magnolia bark and phellodendron extracts), to help maintain cortisol levels already within the normal range, while banaba, holy basil, chromium and vanadium help maintain blood glucose levels already within the normal range. This formula also contains DHEA, decaffeinated green tea extract, l-theanine (supports the body during times of stress) and calcium ascorbate.

Nature’s Cortisol Formula features:
• DHEA—interacts with the adrenal glands, which may help lower cortisol production.
• Holy basil—may normalize cortisol levels and may have a positive effect on maintaining blood sugar levels already within the normal range.
• No stimulants like synephrine from bitter orange. Some competing products add stimulants unnecessarily.
• A more cost-effective formula. Compared to two competitors on the market, Nature’s Cortisol costs less. Product A costs $1.33–2.00 a day (direct cost), depending on how many tablets you take (4 or 6). Competitor B costs $1.67/day based on a suggested dosage of 2 capsules a day. Ours costs $1.17/day based on our recommended dose of 3 capsules/day (direct cost). Get the best and spend less!
• The patented Relora® formula has been proven effective when suggested daily dosage is followed in accordance with patent information.
• More magnolia bark extract than competitors.
• Green tea extract standardized to deliver 60% EGCG (others have less)
• Banaba extract standardized to deliver 1% corosolic acid.


MetaboMax EF

MetaboMax EF is a nourishing, caffeine- and ephedra-free formula that may help reduce appetite while supporting energy levels. As part of an overall program that involves increased activity and calorie restriction, this safe formula supports your weight-management goals. MetaboMax EF contains lotus leaf extract, green tea extract, Fructus aurantia, garcinia fruit, l-carnitine, cordyceps powder, eleuthero root, chromium, bee pollen, spirulina, vitamin E and kelp leaves and stem.

The ingredients in this combination appear to support weight-loss efforts. Lotus leaf extract and green tea extract help support the body. Cordyceps, eleuthero root and chromium may aid the body during times of stress. Bee pollen, spirulina, vitamin E and kelp nourish the body through the rigors of weight loss.


Fat Grabbers®

Fat Grabbers is an ideal product for anyone wanting to help reduce the level of fat in his or her diet. Fat Grabbers contains wholesome, nutritional substances—guar gum, psyllium hulls, chickweed leaf extract and lecithin—to help you achieve your weight-management goals. Research conducted in NSP laboratories verifies many other in vitro experiments performed at independent laboratories that lecithin and saponins emulsify fat in aqueous media. The fat-binding properties of fiber from guar gum and psyllium hulls interfere with the absorption of emulsified fat from the small intestine. The bound fat molecules are then eliminated. Fat Grabbers is designed to be used as part of a low-calorie diet and exercise program.

Help with Some Dietary Fat Is on the Way!
Fat Grabbers is one of NSP’s most popular products. This formula combines the high-quality fiber found in guar gum and psyllium hulls with chickweed and lecithin for a unique formula that emulsifies and binds some of the fat molecules from the foods that are present in the intestinal tract before they can get into the bloodstream. This can be viewed as “grabbing” the lipid molecules and trapping them so that some may not be absorbed. Using Fat Grabbers in conjunction with a sensible dietary plan and exercise will help you create an effective overall weight-management program.


Carbo Grabbers®

Starchy carbohydrates have been in the news for their contribution to the nation’s weight problems. Now you can partially interfere with the enzymatic digestion of dietary starches with all-natural Carbo Grabbers. Carbo Grabbers contains an amylase inhibitor derived from the northern white kidney bean. It naturally and safely interferes with the digestion of starchy carbohydrates and may help reduce the calories that may be available to the body. Carbo Grabbers was designed to be used as part of a low-calorie diet and exercise program.

Improved Cellu-Smooth™ with Coleus

Say Goodbye to Cellulite - Horizons (3/1/2002)
As people age, tissues in certain parts of the body break down. Poor microcirculation in these areas damages fatty tissue while blood- and lymphatic-vessel walls become more permeable. These vessels leak fluid into surrounding tissues, causing congestion and swelling. This prevents oxygen from being carried to the tissues, hindering the drainage of toxins. Poor elimination of toxins, especially in the lymphatic system, can cause scarring and stretch marks as fat cells become trapped.

NSP’s improved Cellu-Smooth with Coleus offers help for millions of people. The nutrients in Cellu-Smooth combine to support circulation, mobilize fat and lymph stores for better distribution, and protect against free radical damage to structural skin proteins. The addition of coleus causes a shift from a more fatty body mass to a more lean body mass, which improves overall health. The effect can be measured by decreases in the waist–hip ratio and the body mass index.

Cellu-Smooth also contains bladderwrack, which nourishes the thyroid gland with iodine, thereby supporting metabolism; rhodiola extract, which may improve strength and stamina; milk thistle, which acts as an antioxidant, detoxifying the liver and aiding elimination; and ginkgo leaves, known free radical scavengers.

No other product on the market contains the same synergistic blend of ingredients as all-natural Cellu-Smooth with Coleus.


Collatrim (capsules) [Weight Loss, Structural] is composed mainly of bovine collagen—the fibrous protein in bones, tendons and connective tissues. It provides the building blocks of protein and amino acids. Your body may utilize the amino acids in Collatrim to rebuild muscles and strengthen lean muscle mass. For weight management, take 6 to 9 capsules daily before bedtime with one glass (8 oz.) water on an empty stomach. For structural benefits and skin support, take 2 to 3 capsules with a meal three times daily.

Collatrim is designed to support weight management by utilizing high levels of protein and important amino acids contained in our premier source of collagen. Collatrim helps the body obtain a favorable ratio of the fat-storing hormone insulin and the fat-burning hormone glucagon, while stimulating the release of human growth hormone, which burns fat and strengthens and supports muscle tissue. Collagen is also important for healthy skin and strong joints.


Support the Thyroid Gland. Every dieter knows about the weight plateau. After a rigorous diet and exercise routine, you lose a few pounds and then hit a plateau. 7-Keto is a safe, natural metabolite of DHEA, which supports an active thyroid gland.Taken twice a day, 7-Keto significantly lowered body fat over an eight-week study period. People who participated in the study group lost about three times as much fat as those in the control group. 7-Keto is a trademark of Humanetics Corp., patent no. 5,296,481


Nutri-Burn™Chocolate and Nutri-Burn™Vanilla
A Nutritious, Delicious Way to Go! Sometimes it is difficult to eliminate certain foods and still have a balanced, nutritious diet. Nutri-Burn balanced meal replacement drink mix provides essential vitamins, minerals, fiber and protein. It contains essential nutrients that support metabolism. These include whey protein, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), l-carnitine and chromium.


—Why Mom Insisted on Brussels SproutsIndole-3-Carbinol is a powerful antioxidant found in the cell walls of cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and brussels sprouts. This antioxidant is helpful in the metabolism of estrogens, protecting estrogen-influenced organs and maintaining hormonal balance.


Pro-G-Yam Cream®
Pro-G-Yam Cream contains progesterone along with wild yam extract from the Mexican Wild Yam. This deep-penetrating formula provides prolonged release action by means of a patented liposome delivery system.

The Premier Antioxidant Beverage

  • Enhances Immunity System
  • Supports Cardiovascular System
  • Promotes Energy

The Only Functional Beverage Certified for Consistent Antioxidant Quality.

Putting Thai-Go to the Test

Brunswick Laboratories, the leading commercial laboratory specializing in the science of antioxidants and oxidative stress has recently studied Thai-Go, a Nature's Sunshine product. As part of its rigorous guidelines for compliance, Brunswick is testing Thai-Go on a lot-by-lot basis to certify its exceptional product quality. This testing will ensure consistent Thai-Go quality, and highlight its unparalleled antioxidant activity. Brunswick Labs' founder and Chairman Jim Nichols says the seal is "a visible symbol of antioxidant quality." Nature's Sunshine is proud of Thai-Go's exceptional scientific formulation and is committed to an unprecedented quality assessment - five ongoing antioxidant tests:


  1. ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) - Measures total antioxidant capacities of different foods.
  2. HORAC (Hydroxyl Radical Averting Capacity) - Measures capacity to avert hydroxyl radicals that are more damaging to the body.

  3. Phenolics - Phenols are substances in plants that have antioxidant characteristics.

  4. Bioflavonoids - Known for antioxidant activity, these are nature's biological response modifiers.

  5. Xanthones - Xanthones are biologically active plant compounds; these compounds support the immune, structural and digestive systems, the brain and the skin.

What are Antioxidants and Why are they Important?

There are many different types of oxygen free radicals formed in the body as a result of natural chemical reactions necessary for life. These oxygen free radicals are very reactive and can damage most cell structures to cause cancer, heart disease, and other age-related diseases. This process is called oxidation. Antioxidants are molecules that slow or prevent oxidation in the body. Antioxidants scavenge the free radicals that the body accumulates. Antioxidants benefit virtually every organ and body system because they mop up damaging free radicals. Thai-Go delivers a punch of antioxidants potential with a very high ORAC value.*


Major ORAC Differences Among Top Antioxidant Beverages

(Potomac, MD) - Health and nutrition researcher Kimberly Day tested three of the top selling antioxidant drinks on the market to determine if they are delivering the benefits they claim to offer.

Ms. Day sent samples of MonaVie, Xango, and Thai-Go to Brunswick Laboratories, which is nationally recognized for their antioxidant testing. The drinks were tested to determine their ORAC value. Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) is the most widely accepted method of measuring antioxidant content in food.

Results indicated that MonaVie had the lowest hydro-ORAC value (23,323), with Xango just slightly higher at 24,480. However Thai-Go was nearly twice as high as either of the the other two beverages tested, coming in at 51,939. All three drinks are comparatively priced and all are marketed as high-quality antioxidant beverages.

Antioxidants work to protect your body from free radical damage. Free radical s are highly reactive forms of oxygen that are missing an electron. When they come into contact with normal molecules, they try to steal an electron, damaging the healthy cell and its DNA.

Free radical damage has long been believed to be a risk factor of many of the chronic diseases that accompany aging - including heart disease, eye degeneration, memory loss, damage from UV light, and cancer. Antioxidants, however, deactivate free radicals, preventing them from doing damage.


Thai-Go is a blend of the most healthful fruits and nutritional supplements from all over the world. Thai-Go is chock full of xanthones, bioflavonoids and powerful antioxidants. Bioflavonoids contribute to the bright colors of fruits and vegetables, enhance vitamin C absorption and help maintain collagen and capillary walls. They also aid in the body's immune-defense system.

Among Thai-Go's key ingredients is mangosteen, a tasty fruit found in eastern tropical nations, such as Thailand. Thai-Go incorporates the whole fruit, including its pericarp to ensure maximum xanthones and phytonutrient capture. Xanthones offer powerful immune and cardiovascular support. Other ingredients in this nutritious juice include wolfberry/gogi fruit, sea buckthorn, red grapes, grape seeds, grape skins, blueberries, apple extract and green tea.

  • Delicious taste
  • Very High ORAC*

    Basically I recycled my Thai-Go Bottles and made them into beautiful gifts. Of course the first step is making sure they are washed and dryed. Then My family and I painted each bottle differently and uniquely with craft paint (I think Acrylic). After the paint had dried for 24 hours, I filled each bottle up with a homemade salad dressing which is a favorite at my home. I made up a recipe card on my computer, with a picture of my family on one side and the recipe on the other. This way when the salad dressing is gone they can make themselves up another batch. I put a hole in the top corner and strung the recipe card on with some pretty red and green ribbon. We gave these out to our friends at our Christmas party. They were LOVED by all!!!

    This same idea can be used in our homespa businesses by instead filling each bottle with pure and natural bubble baths, bath salts, etc. and painting on things such as flowers, butterflies, etc.
