I recently came across a great vitamin and health company with wonderful products.
In 1908, Elis Metchnikoff, a Nobel Prize recipient working at the Pasteur Institute, observed that
L. bulgaricus benefits the overall support of good, indigenous gut flora; inhibition of undesirable organisms; enhanced digestion of milk products and other proteins; production of natural antibiotic substances; effective immune enhancements; maximum effectiveness of waste disposal; and colon cleansing without disrupting beneficial flora.
Roex gets you ready for travel in other ways with the Ultimate Body Package by freeing the body from toxic waste with WOW, which is designed to cleanse, purify, strengthen, and tone the gastrointestinal tract. WOW helps detoxify your body while benefiting your body’s ability to uptake nutrition. I tried it for a month and will never go back to any other anti-oxidant, which is another way of saying weight loss or weight maintenance, even if you are not over weight.
The WOW vitamins replenish the body with the friendly flora offered in the Colon Essentials, a combination of four probiotics that increase the bio-availability of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and fatty acids. This increased absorption of nutrients triggers the body’s “full” signal leading to decreased appetite. You know how hard it is to lose those last few pounds when you are trying to get buff? Probiotics also replenishes friendly bacteria in the intestinal tract, warding off unfriendly bacteria that cause illness. You eliminate old waste from the body, assuring proper elimination and detoxification.
Say no to fat and yes to energy with the Citrigenics I portion of the package that contains vitamins and minerals as well as both thermogenic and lipotropic herbs that work synergistically to support insulin balance, with the conversion of fat to energy and fat metabolism in the liver.
The easy to take fiber Citrigenics II is an all-natural marine fiber that can absorb 6-8 times its weight in fat. Drink lots of distilled water with any vitamin enhancing program to gain the ultimate effects.

Malaria, the ancient mosquito-borne disease that was considered conquored with specialized drugs developed in the 1950s is making a deadly comeback.
But malaria has hotspots in the Western Hemisphere as well, most notably Central America, with surprise, surprise, Costa Rica one of the hottest of the malarial hotspots, and even Mexico showing signs. Only AIDS kills more people on a worldwide basis, but among children, malaria kills more than AIDS.
The malaria economic impact is enormous. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation have supported the efforts to eliminate the disease and most importantly set up grants for vaccine research. AIDS research gets about $400 million a year while malaria research stands at about $60 million annually.
Chloroquine, the cheapest and once the most effective drug against malaria used since the 1950s is no longer efficacious. An extract from the sweet wormwood plant from
In India, fish are being used with great success in controlling malaria by simply eating the Anopheles mosquito larva, with guppies working the best for gobbling the disease literally right from the water. Another solution is bio-engineered mosquitoes that are released into the wild and eliminate the disease because the mosquitos can't breed; needless to say, this is a controversial move and there is no
The parasite is transmitted from one human to others when the mosquito is attracted to an ingredient in human sweat and the mosquito probes for blood; once that person is infected other mosquitoes draw blood from the infected person and carry the disease to other victims. The mosquito is attracted to the odorant called 4-methylphenol and a receptor on cells that picks up the molecule is AgOr1. Human sweat contains over 300 compounds and aromatics and only the female Anopheles mosquito is attracted to this one substance, and only the female carries the disease.
In Africa, the Anopheles gambiae mosquito is the most deadly because it carries the most dangerous parasite: Plasmodium falciparum.
One new technique used by scientists to combat the disease with more modern methods is by starving the parasite’s need for glucose by inhibiting certain blood transporting proteins. Even drug resistant parasites need glucose, and without it they can not multiply in the victim’s bloodstream, thus shutting off the tap or cycle of transmission.
One malaria success story is
