Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body. It is stored in our bones. Perhaps that’s why most people associate calcium with having strong bones and teeth. But calcium does a lot more. It carries out a number of essential bodily functions, It helps maintain a regular heartbeat, it helps your blood to clot, your muscles to contract, your nervous system to function and a myriad other essential processes. Calcium also helps your body absorb nutrients and prevent diseases. It may also help lower blood pressure.

Calcium & Bones
Virtually all of the calcium in the body, approximately 99%, is used to keep our skeletal system strong and healthy.
Throughout our lifetimes our bones are continuously regenerating, remodeling, aided by the constant reabsorption and deposition of calcium into new bone. The rate of calcium resorption and deposition changes with age. From infancy through adolescence, the rate of bone formation exceeds calcium reabsorption however in early and middle adulthood both processes are relatively equal. In seniors, especially postmenopausal women, bone degeneration rates surpass formation, resulting in bone loss that increases the risk of osteoporosis over time. National Institute of Health Calcium Fact Sheet
It is vital that we always maintain optimal levels of calcium. When the body is calcium deficient, it draws stored calcium from the bones. This calcium is then sent throughout the body to ensure basic muscle, nerve and cell functions continues. The constant withdrawal of calcium from the bones lead to Osteoporosis – brittle bones and teeth. Osteoporosis is a medical condition in which the bones become brittle and fragile from loss of tissue, typically as a result of hormonal changes, or deficiency of calcium or vitamin D. Again, Osteoporosis is also a sign that the other key bodily functions that calcium support may be compromised as well.
Herb Cal Tab – concentrated calcium for every life stage.

SunBreeze Oil and SunBreeze Balm are analgesics. Analgesics are topical agents that “relieve” or “kill” pain. There are several topical pain relief products on the market. They typically come in gels, creams, rubs and sprays. The most common brands include Icy Hot, BenGay and SportsCreme. Topical pain relievers are massaged directly onto the skin. Massaging increases blood flow and stimulates the musicles and joints. This allows the product to be absorbed deeper into the affected area (dermal absorption).

Unfortunately, this caused me great concern. Here’s why.
Dermal absorption is the transport of a substance from the outer surface of the skin into deeper layers of the skin and the body. Studies show that our skin absorbs constantly, even without our awareness. In some cases, the skin may represent the most significant exposure pathway. Many commonly used chemicals in household and health & beauty products could potentially result in systemic toxicity if they penetrate through the skin. Then they enter the blood stream and cause health problems away from the original site of entry.
The rate of dermal absorption and affectation of other areas of the body depends on many factors. The main factor is the epidermal or outer layer of the skin. The purpose of this layer is to a gatekeeper that prevents molecules from passing into and out of the skin, thus protecting the lower layers of skin and the bloodstream that feed the rest of the body. The extent of absorption also depends on several factors including any existing skin allergies, infections, injuries, irritants and the overall health of the individual.
The more product that is applied and the longer that product applied causes long term absorption into the body.
Most over the counter health, beauty and medicinal products are not fully regulated by the FDA. Manufactures are allowed to use ingredients and materials without the FDA’s review or approval. This means that you are being exposed to thousands of chemicals in everyday products. Many of these ingredients are carcinogens and contaminants that can be harmful and even deadly to humans. These ingredients can affect reproductive health and the health of an unborn child.

Sunrider’s Fitness Brigade and Sunfit Program are the perfect tools for family and friends who want to get in shape. I should know! My brothers and I are total Sunriders! We recently participated in the NYC TD 5 Boro Bike Tour. Last summer, we climbed Mt. Sinai with our dad. We’ve journeyed deep into pyramids, swam in the Red Sea, the Dead Sea and the Persian Gulf, explored the great Wall of China… You name it, we’ve probably done it. We are always traveling around the world together, doing something adventurous because we honestly just love to get out and play as a family! Like most habits, our active, healthy lifestyles were formed in childhood. Our parents loved to travel and they loved to play. We were also lucky to have grown up in southern California. Not only did we enjoy amazing weather year round but we also had great beaches, pools, parks, hiking trails and deserts. That meant we were always outside – playing! Our street was also a magical place there were a ton of us kids and we’d roller skate, ride bikes, skateboard, play kickball, baseball, tag, freeze tag, you name it. Another bonus of living in southern California was having the mountains close by. So when our “California” winter hit, we hit the slopes for snow sports. As my brother and I reminisced about the “good old days”, we realized one constant: Family and Friends. Some of my fondest memories are my dad holding the handle bars steady as I learned to ride my bike; and, my mom taking the neighborhood kids, in our camper, to the local pool for summer night swims and the block party we once had where the adults competed against the kids. Exercising together was a great bonding activity that has kept our families, our neighbors and our communities close. Even today, the strongest families and friends we have are those that not only prayed together but played together. My family’s bond and our continued commitment to health and exercise definitely started at home!
Apparently, both Sunrider and science agree! Dr. Reuben Chen, MD, talks about the importance of combining family time with fitness time. It’s a win-win for everyone’s health, young and old. It reinforces family bonds and helps children (of all ages) develop a positive attitude toward healthy living.

Benefits of Tea Catechins – Concentrated Green Tea Antioxidants:
Per Dr. Tei-Fu Chen, Sunrider International Founder and Owner, the benefits of tea catechins and polyphenols in Fortune Delight are greater than other beverages, including green tea. He states that “the problem with regular tea is that catechins don’t dissolve in water very well. Also, if you put tea in water, the water dilutes the tea and you won’t get the full benefits.” Fortunately, Fortune Delight is no ordinary tea! It’s an amazing health food in a glass. These teas are specially processed by concentrating the tea botanicals so the rich polyphenols remain effective even when water is added. My workout crew and I always finish our routines with a shaker bottle of Fortune Delight made with ionized water. We also add a packet of Quinary Powder to our tea for a total body boost of nutrition. Fortune Delight comes in a variety of tea-licious flavors. They are also a healthy alternative to sugary fruit juices, sodas and sports drinks. Check out the video below to learn how Sunrider teas, supplements and beverages complement your weight-loss or fitness program. And as always let us know what you think!.

I add a packet of Sunrider Quinary Powder and a tablespoon of Spirulina for extra nutrition. My brother’s VitaShake Cocoa blend is equally delicious with frozen bananas, fresh kale, tangy raspberries, Quinary Powder and, THANKS to our dad, real coconut water from real coconuts!
On Sundays, I always take Sunbars with me because my 6AM hiking crew can’t get enough, especially mid-way through a climb when your body is desperate for energy. So whether I’m hiking in Sedona, AZ, biking along Manhattan Beach, CA, jogging along the Hudson River in NYC or just power-walking around the neighborhood, from coast to coast, I love having Sunrider as a partner on my fitness journey.
