Looking for Clearer Skin AND Hormonal Balance?

Aside from Sunrider’s basic Foundation Foods: Nuplus, Quinary, and Calli tea; Beauty Pearl is also one of my FAVORITES!  Beauty pearl was originally developed for the Empress of China as a tonic to preserve youth and beauty.  Beauty pearls provide nourishment for the body to promote mental and emotional stability.

Beauty Pearl

Women have reported relief from PMS symptoms and Hot flashes

Men report feeling more centered and able to deal with anger and depression.

Men and women have also experienced clearer skin!  (improvement in Acne and other hormone related skin conditions).


These Ingredients are Exclusive to Beauty Pearl:

Korean Ginseng– benefits the nervous system, reproductive glands, and hormone production.

Royal Jelly– produced by the “worker bees” and is extremely beneficial to the skin with proven healing and regenerative properties.  The extract contains 18 amino acids, pantothenic acid, B vitamins and numerous minerals.

Pearl-- “actual pearl” is formed into a liquid extract (special process exclusive to Sunrider), which provides an excellent source of calcium.

Beauty pearl is also rich in Hyaluronic acid  and contains Chrysanthemum flower extract.  Hyaluronic acid serves as an amazing moisturizer to the skin and body.  Chrysanthemum flower works most completely when mixed with herbs and is widely used as a tea.  It is know for its anti-infection, anti-inflammatory and blood-purifying properties.

I can attest to Beauty Pearl dramatically improving my PMS!!!  One pearl a day is usually sufficient for me, but on days when I  am really feeling irritable, I will pop 3 at a time and then 2-3 more, later in the same day.  It doesn’t take long to kick in!  I LOVE IT!

I often think how unfortunate it is for those suffering from depression, bipolar disorder, and other hormonal problems because THEY DON’T KNOW about this natural product that allows the body to balance emotions!

I often joke how Beauty Pearl saves marriages because of the profound impact it has on men and women’s emotional well-being (including my own)!

By the way, Beauty Pearl is COMPLETELY SAFE to take with medications.  In fact, many Sunrider customers who were taking anti-depressants have weaned themselves off their meds completely.

Green Coffee Bean for Weight loss– Just Hype?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThere seems to be a lot of “buzz” about the green coffee bean lately and its amazing effects on weight loss.  First lets answer: What is a green coffee bean?


A Green coffee bean is one that has not been roasted.  It contains high levels of chlorogenic acid, a polyphenol antioxidant that researchers believe may promote weight loss by reducing the absorption of fat and glucose (sugar) in the gastrointestinal tract.


Sunrider’s new weight loss product, SunTrim Plus not only has Green coffee bean, but also… Cocoa bean, Polygonum, Green tea, and Garcinia mangosteen.


Cocoa bean contains antioxidants, including polyphenols, catechins, and epicatechins. Cacao, the source of cocoa beans, is a natural appetite suppressant and may help reduce food cravings.

Polygonum contains resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant that has been shown in studies to provide a multitude of health benefits such as weight loss, free-radical protection, anti-aging support, and cardiovascular support.

Green tea contains tea catechins, naturally occurring polyphenols (powerful antioxidants). Tea catechins may support both lipid and carbohydrate metabolism and on triglycerides and cholesterol within the normal levels.

Garcinia mangosteen is a source of hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which may suppress appetite and support a healthy metabolism.  Garcinia has been used safely for centuries in Southeast Asia to make meals more filling.

So, to answer the question: Is the Green Coffee Bean just hype?   The answer is No.  Although results vary from person to person, research and personal testimonies show its effectiveness for weight loss.

After Pregnancy with Sunrider

My baby girl, Keira is 51/2 months here and although I am not sleeping quite as much as I’d like, Sunrider has made it easier for me to get through my daily tasks.  I still feel alert, focused and sustained throughout the day.

I am currently taking: 4 Nuplus Original, 3-4 Quinary packets, 1 Beauty pearl, 4 packets of peach Fortune Delight, 2 Evergreen, and 2 Calli tea bags with Sunectar sweetener.

Even though I’m not carrying a baby anymore, I haven’t decreased my Sunrider foods to the amount I started with before pregnancy.  Here’s why…

1.) Lack of sleep from waking up to feed Keira.  The body requires 8 hours of sleep in order to renew and rejuvenate itself. Sleep loss means more free radicals that break down the body.  Quality nutrition helps repair the body, and although extra nutrition doesn’t replace sleep, it sure makes a difference when you can’t make that sleep up!

2.) Breast-feeding:  A nursing mother requires more nutrients.  A woman’s body is taking on “extra work” to produce milk for her baby.  Also, by consuming enough high-quality nutrition, benefits are passed onto your little one!



Sunrider Foods and My Pregnancy

Hi Ladies! I want to share with you my pregnancy story and the enormous help that the Sunrider foods can be for you and your baby during and after your pregnancy.

I had been doing Sunrider for one year when I got pregnant.  My health issues were a real challenge for six years prior to starting SunriderI was lucky to have one year of “Regeneration” (repairing and healing) in my body from Sunrider before getting pregnant, which I believe really helped prepare my body for the demanding task of carrying a baby.

At the time I found out I was pregnant, I was taking 3 Nuplus, 3 packets of Quinary, 2 Calli tea bags daily, along with Sunrider’s Sunectar sweetener, and 1-3 Beauty pearl a day. This amount of Sunrider is what I felt I needed for energy, stamina, and balance.  But of course, everyone’s body is at a different health state, so your body may be okay with less or may require more.

The first month of pregnancy was great, but the second month I felt nausea and upset stomach off and on.  I never threw up and only missed a few hours of work (instructing my fitness classes).  After the second month I felt pretty good.  I noticed feeling low on energy, so I increased my Nuplus intake to 4 packets a day.

As my pregnancy progressed, I could feel the demands placed on my body from my growing baby, so I decided to increase my nuplus to 6 packets a day: 2 before breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  In addition to the 3 packets of Quinary, I also added 3 packets of Alpha 20C, which supports the immune system.  (The 5 herbal formulas in Quinary include: Alpha 20C, Prime Again, Lifestream, Assimilaid, and Conco.) Sometimes I would take as much as 6 Beauty Pearl when I was having really emotional days.  I also took 4 vials of Evergreen and 4-6 packets of Peach Fortune Delight, which is great for the blood and supporting iron levels–I always had a problem with anemia, so this prevented my iron from dropping into dangerous levels.

* You may have been warned by your doctor about needing a blood transfusion if your iron drops too low.

I did NOT take Pre-natal vitamins. I know that vitamins are not what the body prefers to function optimally and to heal itself.  Had I not known about Sunrider, I would have taken pre-natal vitamins. As long as I ate plenty of the Sunrider foods, I knew there was no need for isolated vitamins and minerals.  After all, I could actually feel the positive changes in my body from taking Sunrider.

Vitamins, minerals, & other isolated supplements on the other hand NEVER improved my health.  It was one of those things that I was afraid to stop taking my vitamins even though they didn’t help my condition.  I, like many other health conscious people felt like various supplements were something I HAD TO DO if my health was important to me.  Perhaps we believe this because we hear about it frequently in many health and fitness magazines and by different  professionals in the wellness industry. (e.g. Personal trainers, health practitioners, etc.)

I can’t express enough how much these Sunrider foods helped me through my pregnancy!!

I had energy which is probably one of the biggest complaints from mothers.

• I was able to continue with my cardiovascular and strength training exercises–I just lowered my resistance and intensity.

• I had NO problem with edema.

• The only swelling I had was in my feet towards the last month.

I had NO cravings for junk, which was really helpful for me in staying at a healthy weight.

So even though my pregnancy was not 100% perfect, it really wasn’t a dreadful thing like I had imagined before finding Sunrider.

Sunbreeze oil and its many uses!

Sun breeze essential oil was one of Sunrider’s first products, which Dr. Chen made in the basement of his father’s home.  Sun breeze does not irritate the skin like Biofreeze, IcyHot and Bengay do. Rather it contains completely natural oils that aid in quicker recovery.

Ingredients: menthol, cassia oil, mint extract, eucalyptus oil, & camphor.

Sun breeze is most used for the purpose of relieving sore muscles, aching joints, and tension.  Like all of Sunrider’s products, a little goes a long way!

Sun breeze oil also works great for cuts, insect bites, bee stings, sunburns or burns from other heat sources such as the stove or boiling water.  If Sun breeze is applied right away, healing time is much faster.

It can also be used on tooth aches, warts, or moles.  For a tooth ache, apply a small drop of oil on the affected area.  Many have claimed that applying 1/2 an inch of the balm on a wart or mole, with a tight bandage, have eliminated it after 3-4 days.  People have also used Sun breeze on bruises to clear up faster.

People with sinus congestion have used Sun breeze by applying it on either side of the nose, on the temples and forehead.  *Use sparingly as to not bother the eyes.

1-2 drops of the oil has also been used in the ear for infections, water-logging, and wax-buildup.

When giving Sun breeze to children, use less.
