Weight Loss Secrets
|When Aubrey Hampton first mixed ground ginger, peppermint and eucalyptus leaf into coconut oil in 1967, little did he dream that almost 30 years later he'd be CEO of a bodycare company — Aubrey Organics — with happy devoted customers around the globe. His mother, an herbalist, told him 20 years earlier about making natural bodycare products. She'd say, "From the flower heads to the roots, nature works together." |
One hundred and thirty products later, Aubrey still hears his mother's voice every time he works in his lab. Why use something synthetic when something natural works so much better? That's the practical philosophy behind every Aubrey Organics product. This simple idea has made Aubrey the leading natural bodycare manufacturer in the world, and a leader in natural cosmetic chemistry.
|The family owned and operated company produces the finest and freshest organic flaxseed oil, organic Evening Primrose Oil, green food supplements and other premium essential fatty acid products.
Considered the world’s premier manufacturer of high quality, unrefined & unfiltered flaxseed oil, Barlean’s products have met international acclaim with leading health and nutrition authorities, doctors and health practitioners.
Barlean’s has a “common sense” approach to producing and distributing its products at the absolute peak of freshness and nutritional value. The oils are actually gently expeller pressed after (not before) they are ordered. Once fresh-pressed, the oil is air-delivered directly to local health stores within only days of being made. Every Barlean’s bottle is stamped with a “fresh pressed date” & “freshest before” date. A guarantee that you are getting the freshest, most nutritious flax.
The fresh, quality grown, 100% organically certified North American seeds combined with Barlean’s proprietary cold pressing method consistently deliver the famous great tasting, whole food nutty flavor.

|Bragg Live Foods, Inc. is the result of a life time of crusading the word of good Health worldwide since 1912. Paul C. Bragg, originator of Health Food Stores in America, founded the company, now run by his daughter Patricia Bragg, N.D., Ph.D., who continues to spread the gospel of health by providing natural healthy products, and a library of self-help books.
Bragg Live Food Products once produced 365 products, the first vitamins, minerals, health teas, health foods, health candies; skin care etc, "we had one for every day of the year" says Patricia.
Now she continues to sell her three favorites, Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, Organic Olive Oil, and Liquid Aminos, as well as 10 best selling self-help books. Her Apple Cider Vinegar-Miracle Health System has sold over six million copies to date!
Paul was the inspiration for today's Mega Companies such as Schiff, Thompson, Twin Labs, Shaklee, Herbal Life, Gardenburger, and even the Good Earth Restaurant chain was inspired by Paul to start restaurants to serve health foods instead of fast foods. Patricia continues to reach out and spread the word of health through radio shows, television, her web site, and personal lectures; she has traveled around the world 13 times spreading the word.
"You are what you eat, drink, breathe, think, say and do. Take control to live a long, vital, happy life!"

|Our family began by making cleaners for industrial use before Corvettes had fins. When your grandmother was wearing a poodle skirt and drinking a float at the soda fountain, we were earning our first patents.|
Decades later, when Jimi Hendrix turned rock upside down and played guitar with his teeth, we started our own quiet rebellion. We decided: only cleaners that were plant-based. Only paper that was recycled. Only products not tested on animals, period.
Does it sound boring to say we’re family owned and operated? Because what it means to us is that it’s personal. We’ve been around, well – seems like forever. We know how to make cleaners that CLEAN, paper goods that work (with 80% post-consumer content, and that’s good,) detergents that won’t harm a fiber of your clothing, and a phosphate-free auto dish soap that won’t etch anything. Ever.
We’re earth Friendly Products. Green. Clean.
And really, really good at both.

|Maxam Nutraceutics formulas are technologically advanced micro-activated, sublingual sprays administered in a colloidal mineral matrix, designed for maximum utilization and regeneration of target-specific cell receptor sites in the body. Maxam products activate immune response at the messenger RNA level, in turn, stimulating a stronger DNA cell replication. They do not contain herbs, vitamins, soy or other ingredients that may cause adverse reactions or imbalances in some people.
Maxam Nutraceutics has proudly pioneered SMART Nutrients (Systemic Micro-Activated Response Technology), a highly effective, multi-spectrum delivery system. SMART Nutrients are enzymatically bound into Micro-Activated Biospheres with an overall negative surface charge that mimics the body’s own natural fluids such as blood and lymph. SMART Nutrients are cell receptor site specific. Since they are recognized as natural body fluids and carry a proper ‘ionic charge’ (the same as the naturally occurring nutrients in fresh fruits and vegetables) – as they enter the bloodstream, the liver recognizes them as natural DNA elements (rather than trying to filter them) and allows the nutrients free passage to the cells. This enzymatic principle ensures complete nutrient absorption and uptake on a cellular level.
