New Product: Mind-Max

It’s the perfect combination for optimal brain function. Scientists are finding that a decreasing number of nerve synapses (the connections between nerve cells) spells problems in memory, cognition and overall brain health. Blood circulation and magnesium play an essential role in nerve synapses. Nature’s Sunshine is proud to introduce Mind-Max, which contains magnesium l-threonate, plus the herbs ginkgo leaf, gotu kola and bacopa leaf.

Type in the name of an herb, supplement, health condition, etc., and you will be guided to entries with extensive information. One word of caution: Anyone with computer access to Wikipedia can edit the entries. As a result, the entries are quite up to date, but there can also be significant misinformation.
