New & Improved Thai-Go Coming in June

One of our best-selling products ever and arguably our tastiest liquid supplement, Thai-Go is replete with antioxidants that provide powerful support to the circulatory system. Now it’s going to be improved! Watch for the announcement on our news blog: The Herbs Place News

Besides the original 11 ingredients which include mangosteen fruit and pericarp, wolfberry, red grapes and skin, blueberries and more …. Nature’s Sunshine is adding these two potent antioxidants.

• Pomegranate fruit contains vascular-protective agents that guard the body’s endothelial cells against free-radical assault. Pomegranate contains polyphenols, tannins and anthocyanins; all are beneficial antioxidants. This fruit may support cholesterol and blood pressure levels that are already within the normal range, and it may help increase the amount of oxygen that gets to the heart.

• Açai Berry is commonly found in Brazil and Peru, and is long-used by natives for its health benefits (especially antioxidant properties). Açai is also known to help the body rid itself of toxins, improve blood flow and support already-normal cholesterol levels. Açai berries are high in potassium.

Three New Solstic Products

Hopefully you have read about the new Solstic line of products in the May Manager Extra, but for those who are not yet managers, here’s a post about them on The Herbs Place News website about the products. Solstic Nutrition has been replaced with Solstic Twenty-Four.

Our order came in and we’ve tried the Solstic Energy and Solstic Twenty-Four. WOW! They are truly delicious! I generally don’t enjoy liquid supplements, but these are amazing. Not only do they taste great, they even smell wonderful and yummy. I was very surprised! The energy one has caffeine in it and I’m not used to that, so it kept me up very late. Guess it does work!

What a great alternative to those caffeine drinks that are so expensive. These are easy to carry with you also. They’re in little slim pouches that can be stuck in a shirt pocket or purse. Just add it to 14-16 oz. of cold water and you’ve got a nutritious beverage to feed your body.

Watch for all the details in upcoming information. This new line of products will bring in new customers interested in getting the cleaning chemicals out of their homes. You can share with them information on cleansing the blood and bowel to detox from all the years of chemicals they’ve been exposed to. We’ve been using natural cleaning supplies since the late 70’s and I love Sunshine Concentrate for so much of my cleaning in our home, from laundry, countertops, bathrooms, dishes and even the dishwasher … we also use it in the garden and to wash the car and pet. This is one product you can sell and get continued business. Be sure to share as many uses as you can since it has a multitude of uses and saves a lot of household dollars. Print the PDF version of the uses and instructions sheet.

Your new member gets a free membership and a 10% discount! If you sponsor five people this way in June, you can earn 100% bonus QV toward our Cancun Convention in 2011.

Sales Tax

When NSP began collecting sales tax we were less than excited since it increases the amount of the customer’s bill. However, you’ve probably noticed that your state tax return asks you to pay any sales taxes from purchases you’ve made without sales tax being charged (such as internet orders from places that do not charge them).

I recently processed an order at a website that had an alert on my confirmation page for the state of Colorado (I know it won’t be the only one there for long since all states have geared up to get their missing sales tax dollars from internet sales). Here’s what the website showed:

? “Colorado state sales tax is due on all non-exempt purchases. This website does not collect and is not required to collect it here. However, purchases are not exempt merely because they are made via the internet. The state of Colorado requires its residents to file a tax return at the end of each year for all untaxed purchases, and pay the appropriate sales tax on those purchases, if any. To assist Colorado residents, retailers who do not collect sales taxes are required to provide their Colorado customers a year-end summary of all purchases made by that customer during the year. We are also required to provide that annual summary to the Colorado Department of Revenue.”

We’re a lot more excited now that NSP is collecting sales tax for our sales. It’s an inevitable charge for the customer … and NSP sure saves us a lot of headaches and paperwork by keeping yet another bookkeeping task off of our time schedules. Thank you, Nature’s Sunshine!
