THE SISTER ABIGAIL SHOW…
Is happy to offer… HealthyFix Products!
Since 1992 HealthyFix has offered the highest quality nutritional supplements money can buy. When I was in my research stages prior to really taking charge of my health I participated in their nutritional course and became a Certified Nutritional Consultant. I also chose to become an Eat God’s Way Consultant as well. These are great courses and come with my highest recommendations. I am saying this simply to say that I have thoroughly investigated their products. These are the products that I use and love. These are the products that I recommend to my immediate family and friends. If you have any questions related to this product line then feel free to contact me or leave a comment below.
Radical Shield Beats “One a Day” anyday!
Value packed and convenient, Radical Shield™ is designed for those newcomers to nutritional supplements who prefer to begin their programs with just one capsule per meal. Radical Shield™ contains the right amount of various nutrients such as copper, iodine, and vitamins K, D, and A, five nutrients that you don’t want to take excessively. You would get adequate levels of these important nutrients if you took only three capsules of Radical Shield™ each day. This amazing formulation offers a remarkable amount of important nutrients including phytonutrients (nutrients derived from plants) such as quercetin, which is a very important plant polyphenol, and high levels of folic acid, as well as health-promoting amounts of vitamins B6 and B12.
Radial Shield™ contains powerful phytonutirents. Phytonutrients provide useful protection to you, just as they do for plants. Quercetin is a powerful antioxidant polyphenol. Given to experimental animals, it reduces the incidence of certain types of cancers when they’re exposed to carcinogens. People who have more quercetin in their diets tend to have a lower incidence of cancers, though, of course, people who eat a lot of vegetables ingest additional protective phytonutrients as well.
One of the causes of stomach upset that is sometimes experienced when you start taking a multi-vitamin is that the bugs (bacteria) that live in your gastrointestinal tract are not used to the levels of nutrients that are found in a supplement like Radical Shield. Although the population of these microbes is large, they are normal and generally do not cause any harm. They actually help to keep pathogenic microbes out. Once you introduce a supplement such as Radical Shield, some of those microbes may initially die as a result of new elevated-dose nutrient exposure. Before long, however, they develop resistance and are able to live happily under the more positive nutrient conditions. Many supplements can cause diarrhea when you start taking them, especially if you have never taken them before. If you have never taken a vitamin C supplement and suddenly begin taking 4 grams a day, you are more likely to suffer from diarrhea than if you take lower amounts. The E. coli bacteria, which make up perhaps 2/3 of the dry weight of feces, cannot initially tolerate high levels of vitamin C. They need time to adapt to it. Until then the E. coli die and you’ve got diarrhea. Once your body acclimates to the new levels of vitamin C, the E. coli are able to adapt and survive to do their job. Then you live happily ever after.
A survey conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture on over 37,000 Americans, who were chosen to represent a cross-section of all Americans, revealed that over 80% of the participants were deficient in one or more essential nutrients. The FDA’s recommended daily allowance is often not enough. For example, the FDA says 200 micrograms of folic acid is enough, that 1.7 milligrams of vitamin B-6 will do, and that 12 micrograms of B-12 is sufficient.
These three nutrients are extremely important in dealing with a toxic metabolite, which is produced as a normal byproduct of your metabolism. It’s not just oil refineries that produce toxic waste. Every animal does, too. One of these toxic wastes – which is very important in long-lived animals like human beings – is called homocysteine. You make it from methionine in your diet. If you have enough vitamin B-6, folic acid and vitamin B-12, you can convert it to a beneficial substance – the antioxidant known as cystathionine. Conversely, you could recycle it back into methionine. However, if you do not have enough B-6, B-12 and folic acid, (especially if you’re on a diet that’s rich in animal protein – which generally has a lot of methionine in it) you can end up with elevated levels of homocysteine that can lead to atherosclerosis, blood clots or strokes.
The FDA is now requiring fortification with folic acid for specific foods like pasta. Even so, it is estimated that only approximately 25% of American women will be getting 400 micrograms of folic acid a day from their food supply. So it’s important to take a supplement. In 2002 the American Medical Association (historically not a proponent of nutritional supplements) recommended for the first time that all adults take a good multiple vitamin. They based this recommendation on years of clinical research verifying that people who take a multiple vitamin have fewer illnesses and generally enjoy better health than those who don’t. Research has also shown that folic acid supplements taken before and during pregnancy reduce the risk of neural tube defects in newborn children. It’s also becoming evident that folic acid may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease caused by the elevated levels of homocysteine.
Three capsules per day of Radical Shield™ contain 800 micrograms of folic acid, as well as health-promoting amounts of vitamins B-6 and B-12.
In a recent study in the Journal of the American Medical Association (Rimm et al. 1998;279:359-364) there was a 5.8% decrease in cardiovascular risk with each additional 100 micrograms of folic acid taken per day. We have 266 micrograms of folic acid in each Radical Shield™ capsule; there is no suggested RDA at this time. Therefore by taking three capsules a day, you’re going to get approximately 800 micrograms. Similarly, in the vitamin B12 department, we have 33 micrograms in each Radical Shield capsule, which is 550% of the RDA. And of course if you take three of those per day, you’re going to be getting nearly 20 times the RDA of vitamin B12. With B6, we have 15.5 milligrams in each Radical Shield capsule, which is 760% of the RDA. So if you take three servings per day, you’re going to get pretty close to 25 times the RDA.
Homocysteine has been looked at as a causal factor of cardiovascular disease since 1972. Dr. Kilmer McCully wrote about the detrimental effects of homocysteine. It’s taken a long time and a lot of studies for this relationship to be generally accepted. Of course, it’s taken even longer for the FDA to accept and, in fact, there isn’t any accepted health claim by the FDA for folic acid as a way of reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease; not yet. The FDA still hasn’t approved such a claim.
JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) published a study, in its February 4, 1998 issue, recognizing homocysteine as an independent risk factor for atherosclerosis. JAMA also indicates that B6 and folate may help prevent coronary heart disease, for which strong scientific evidence has been accumulating for over 20 years.

EnergyFix® is specifically designed to provide nutrients that your brain can use to make more neurotransmitters. Nuerotransmitters are not drugs. They are natural substances made by neurons in your brain from certain nutrients in your diet. These nutrients, which many of us are lacking, are required throughout the day for alertness, energy, ‘get up and go‘, making quick decisions and effortless memory. The amount of activity that you can perform has a lot to do with the supply of neurotransmitters available to your brain. Taking EnergyFix® 2-3 times a day will help your brain naturally make these great neurotransmitters.
WHY ARE NEUROTRANSMITTERS SO IMPORTANT?
Everything that you do begins in your brain – every thought, every memory, and every will to move a muscle. Everything that goes on in your body happens because of the release of neurotransmitters. EnergyFix® is specifically designed to provide nutrients that your brain can use to make more neurotransmitters. The results are pretty remarkable.
Mental fitness formulations were created in the early 70’s. Noradrenaline, the brain’s version of adrenaline, is required for alertness, activity and ‘get up and go’. When you have ample amounts of noradrenaline you can make quick decisions and have effortless memory. There is a related neurotransmitter called dopamine. Dopamine is important in the reward system of pleasure. It is also essential for memory.
Neurotransmitters are not drugs; they’re natural substances made by neurons in your brain from nutrients in your diet. The neurotransmitters transmit nerve signals across the synapse from one nerve to another.
The amount of activity that you can perform has a lot to do with the supply of the neurotransmitters that are available to your brain. That supply, in turn, depends on the availability of raw materials the brain receives from your diet or from supplements.
HOW DO WE GET MORE NORADRENALINE?
Phenylalanine is a precursor of the neurotransmitter noradrenaline and is available in the typical diet. Most of it, however, may be squandered through competition with other amino acids for transport across the blood-brain barrier or used for other purposes such as building proteins or for gluconeogenesis (making glucose from amino acids). The problem we face is not just the availability of precursors. Co-factors are also an issue. If you go into a health food store, you’ll be able to find phenylalanine capsules easily. Sometimes you take them and something happens; you get more energized. Many times nothing at all happens. Part of that is because other nutrients such as vitamin B6 and vitamin C, folic acid and copper are needed in order to convert phenylalanine into noradrenaline and dopamine. These are essential nutrients that are required as co-factors to enzymes that are involved in the process of conversion. These materials – the copper and the vitamin B6 – are also required to convert phenylalanine into beta phenylethylamine, which is a neuromodulator in your brain that modulates the effects of noradrenaline and dopamine and probably some other neurotransmitters as well.
DISCOVERING HOW THE BRAIN USES NUTRIENTS
The specific pathways along which these nutrients operate has been studied and this information is used in the design of EnergyFix. Once it was discovered that noradrenaline and dopamine were being depleted by excessively hard work, the obvious question was how does the brain make them? It is important to know what nutrients, enzymes and co-factors are required. Most of this has been known since the mid-1960’s. The metabolic pathway charts, which show each step in the process of going from phenylalanine to noradrenaline, are widely and readily available.
Experiments have shown how much noradrenaline can be produced. One experiment involved army personnel who had to fly halfway around the world and then engage in simulated combat. They used a related amino acid, tyrosine, as a supplement. They found that tyrosine could help fight the fatigue and brain fade that occur. Another study involved the breakdown products of noradrenaline and other neurotransmitters that are found in the urine after various kinds of activities. It is known that more of the breakdown products of noradrenaline appear after mentally fatiguing activities, such as working long hours.
In an experiment performed on office workers in Japan who were given difficult mental tasks to perform it was discovered that if the difficult mental tasks went on for only a couple of hours a supplement didn’t make a drastic difference. However, in an all-day task of eight hours or more supplements made a real difference – particularly as the day wore on – in terms of the person’s alertness and ability to perform.
HOW DO I TAKE ENERGYFIX FOR BEST RESULTS?
Do not take EnergyFix® with proteins. Wait at least one hour after consuming protein and then do not consume proteins for an hour after taking EnergyFix. When your stomach disassembles protein certain amino acids can interfere with the transport of phenylalanine across your stomach into your blood stream and particularly across your blood-brain barrier into the brain.
There are protease enzymes in your saliva that start the digestive process as soon as you start chewing. When protein reaches your stomach it starts to be taken apart by protease enzymes. Our bodies are very efficient at breaking down food into usable nutrients.
EnergyFix® Capsules are designed to do the same thing as the EnergyFix drink but without the low glycemic fructose. You’ll get better results if you take carbohydrates with EnergyFix® and EnergyFix® Capsules . We recommend a piece of fruit with your drink (or capsules) both at 10:00 AM & 3:00 PM. This is a good way to get your two pieces of fruit for the day along with the necessary fiber.
CHECK IT OUT WITH YOUR DOCTOR
One fascinating statistic is that 80% of the population does not get the FDA’s recommended daily allowance of one or more of the essential nutrients you need to make the most important neurotransmitters, dopamine and noradrenaline. So it is understandable that the number one complaint doctors get from their patients is that they feel chronically tired or fatigued. Now we hasten to warn against the assumption that if you are chronically weary then all you need is one of our supplements containing phenylalanine and co-factors. You may have a medical condition, which needs to be treated by a doctor. If you feel chronically tired, go to a doctor; have him or her do lab work for you. If everything checks out then EnergyFix® may be your best solution for feeling better.

SlimFix Carbohydrate has become a dirty word. While carbohydrates (carbs) are necessary for good health, some are not so good for you. Eating the wrong carbs can place a drain on your energy, inducing sleepiness when you want to be awake, and fattening you when you want to be slim.
Moreover, many of the carbs we like best, such as bread, potatoes, and angel food cake drive our blood sugar sky-high, a real problem as we age. Eventually the body becomes resistant to insulin which in turn can lead to diabetes. Carbs can run you down and tire you out if their glycemic index (GI) is too high. The GI is a measure of how much a carb affects our blood sugar levels, determining how fast they rise, how high they get, and how long they stay there.
What’s worse, high blood sugar can stimulate the formation of molecules called AGEs (advanced glycation end products), which are known to be reflective of how fast we age. SlimFix contains Resveratrol, a polyphenol found in red wine and grapes, has been the subject of recent research showing that it can help protect against some cancers, cardiovascular disease and other conditions. Now you don’t have to drink wine to get the benefits!
How It Works!
Now it has been discovered that an important trace mineral, our old friend chromium, can help reduce the glycemic impact of food when taken with your meal. The bioflavonoids diosmin and hesperidin also help in this process, as do the herbs cinnamon, green tea, allspice, cloves, and nutmeg. SlimFix (formerly AGEless) contains all these ingredients, as well as American ginseng, an herb found to be important for proper blood-sugar metabolism.
Resveratrol is a natural substance with the ability to halt or reverse age-related disease through the use of natural sirtuin activators. While aging still remains a mystery to be solved, the new research allows important pieces of the puzzle to fall into place. Its hypothesis about how the sirtuin SIRT1 operates within a cell is strongly supported by the evidence, which goes a long way toward unveiling what (cringingly) may be thought of as the secrets of aging.
We first learned about the glycemic index (GI)from books like the Life Extension Weight Loss Program, The Zone, and now The Glucose Revolution. These books explained how the GI can affect our weight, our energy levels, and our lives. And now SlimFix picks up where they left off. SlimFix can help:
Increase your response to insulin
Keep you wide awake throughout the day
Decrease fat accumulation
Reduce the formation of AGEs
