New Years Resolution

Many of us make a New Years Resolution to lose weight, and live a healthier life style. Only to have that resolution come to a screeching halt when we wake up the next morning and grab our caffeinated beverage of choice.    

I say let's break the cycle and start the New Year off right and replace our caffeinated beverages with a drink that truly "Does the body good", and Cleanse with Calli®.

Why is Calli good for the body? 

Calli assists in the body’s natural cleansing processes 
through its unique herbal extracts combined with a 
healthy diet and exercise program.

But you do not need to take my word for it, here are a couple of articles written on Calli Tea from two individuals that are not associated with Sunrider International. 

What are the benefits of Drinking Calli Tea?
Written by William Lynch
On Live Strong web site

A product of Sunrider International, Calli Tea provides all the benefits of green tea plus more thanks to its unique concentration of herbal ingredients such as camellia leaf, perilla leaf, mori bark extract, alisma root extract, and imperate root. Calli Tea, which does not contain caffeine, added sugar, or artificial sweeteners, comes in regular, cinnamon, or mint flavors. And because of its herbal concentration, one Calli Tea bag can make four cups of tea.

Like other forms of green tea, Calli Tea's main benefit comes in detoxifying the body. Camellia sinensis, the main ingredient in Calli Tea, contains antioxidant polyphenol chemicals known as catechins. These catechins aid in the body's natural cleansing process and absorb harmful free radicals, removing them from the body before they can do any damage. Unlike acidic beverages like coffee, Calli Tea is alkaline in nature, creating an environment within the body that prohibits the easy absorption of impurities and toxins resulting from the normal digestive process. As a result of the improved detoxification, Calli Tea drinkers report increased mental clarity and improved function of the immune, endocrine, digestive, respiratory, and circulatory systems.

Calli Tea's detoxification properties help improve digestion, aiding in the elimination of waste without serving as a laxative or diuretic. Drinking Cinnamon Calli Tea, in particular, can prove beneficial to digestion, with cinnamon long revered for its ability to soothe stomach discomfort and calm nausea symptoms.

Aside from its detoxifying abilities, camellia sinensis acts as an antibacterial to combat infections. Calli Tea also contains lemon herbal extract, another recognized antibacterial and antiviral herb in Chinese medicine. Because of these ingredients, drinking Calli Tea can help ease symptoms of the common cold.

According to Chinese medicine, herbalists also prescribe camellia sinensis to treat asthma and other respiratory ailments. Chrysanthemum flower, another ingredient in Calli Tea, provides relief of sinus congestion and allergy symptoms, while also acting to strengthen the lungs. Mint flavored Calli Tea only enhances these benefits, with mint's strong aroma helpful in opening up congested noses, throats and lungs.

Calli Tea offers the same soothing effects of other herbal teas, helping calm the mind and alleviate stress. However, Calli Night, another Calli variation, enhances relaxation and promotes a more restful sleep thanks to ingredients such as passion flower, ho shou wu, jujube seed, poria, camellia leaf, sage root, rose hip, imperate root, and winter melon seed.

Calli Tea –a “Food?”

Posted by: richnpolly Post date: February 10th, 2010

Much has been said on the internet about the virtues of Calli Tea—the unique blend formulated and marketed exclusively by Sunrider of Torrance, California. Dr. Chen, in this product, has combined several ingredients to create a synergy effect not available in any other tea on the market.
In this report, I want to focus on the claim that Calli Tea is a “food.” Why? Because if it is a food, it will further set it apart as having properties that entitle it to be in a class all by itself. For purposes of this article, let’s take a look at some of the details concerning this claim:
1. To quote Sunrider distributor, and researcher J.W. Emerson of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma: “Calli Tea feeds the hollow organs of the body—those organs having a “cavity”: gallbladder, stomach, urinary bladder, the small intestine and the colon.”
2. Further, JW stated: “Calli Tea provides these hollow organs with short chain (3-5) amino acids and peptides necessary for their maintenance and growth as cellular entities.”
3. In my interview with JW to learn the details of how Calli Tea is a food in liquid form, he recalled that the late Dr. Michael DeBakey, the world-renowned heart surgeon from Baylor College of Medicine, before he began taking Calli Tea, Nuplus, Quinary and Sunnydew, submitted all of those Sunrider products to chemical analysis right there at Baylor. He wanted to make sure that what he was taking into his body would be “food” the body would recognize as food and that it would be beneficial to his body. When the results came back, he found confirmation of the claim that indeed all of those products were “food” and good for him. He became a user of Sunrider foods at that point until his death in 2008.
4. Although Calli Tea is not a “complete” food, i.e.; containing  carbs, amino acids, essential fatty acids , vitamins and minerals, it does contain those elements necessary that can be metabolized to give energy and build tissue.
5. Here is a quick rundown on the main ingredients of Calli Tea and how each  herb contributes significantly to the combined life-force produced as they are blended together to produce a “food” readily used by the body:
• Camellia sinensis (Green Tea):  has a long and distinguished history in Chinese medicine to treat asthma as a bronchodilator; also used to treat angina pectoris, peripheral vascular disease, coronary artery disease, antibacterial activity, bacterial infections.
• Lemon herbal extract: used in Chinese medicine for its antibacterial and antiviral properties; also exhibits high antioxidant activity.
• Chrysanthemum flower: relieves allergy/sinus congestion symptoms; strengthens the lungs; relieves red, itching and dry eyes; has been used in Chinese medicine to treat high blood pressure.
• Jasmine extract: used to treat: fever, inflammation of the eyelids; and mosquito bites.
• Lalang grass: an herb used in Chinese medicine to treat: heart, lungs, stomach and urinary bladder.
Given the above facts, it would appear that indeed, Calli Tea does qualify as a “food”—a substance recognized by the body as able to produce both energy and cleansing. It is highly likely that as the use of Calli Tea becomes more prevalent worldwide, we will discover many more benefits to this liquid food.

Oral Hygiene

Did you know that the chemical, Sodium Laurel Sulfate in regular toothpaste causes canker & mouth soars, and can contributes to mouth cancer?  My dentist warns his patients to not use products that contain it. 

Did you also know that Fluoride is a waste product that they use to etch glass?  It is a very strong chemical that eats the enamel from our teeth, yet it is in most commercial toothpaste. Do you know that there is a warning on most toothpaste against children using and swallowing  toothpaste with fluoride in it? 

Did you know that Sunrider's Sunsmile Toothpaste, Whitening Gel and Refresher Drops do not contain these harmful chemicals?  It is an excellent Oral Hygiene program we all can use safely. It tastes good, and is more effective than regular toothpaste.  It is very concentrated, so you only need a small amount, the size of a small pea.

I use a small amount of Sunrider's Sunsmile  Toothpaste, Whitening Gel and 1 drop of Refresher Drops on my toothbrush, each time I brush. Then I use a few drops in my water pick reservoir and get the refresher drops between my teeth to kill bacteria and help prevent gum disease. I believe it is more effective than flossing.

Did you know that the  Sunsmile Refresher Drops are basically the same as Fruit and Vegetable Rinse, but taste better?  They are designed for oral hygiene, to help kill bacteria in the mouth.  You can also put a few drops in water and rinse your mouth, after brushing or anytime you want to refresh your mouth or kill bacteria.  This product is effective to gargle with for soar throats also.

 Did you know that Refresher Drops do not contain alcohol, like most  other mouth washes do? 

Do you know about Sunrider's Sunsmile Tabs?  You can use them anytime you want to refresh your mouth with a breath mint.  Or you can chew them and swish the saliva between your teeth, to help remove plaque when you can't brush your teeth.  They also nourish the vocal chords so we can sing or talk better. Professional vocalists love them.  I use them all the time, as I travel internationally, doing lectures and SR training's, all over the world.  They keep me in "good voice".

I have switched to Sunrider's Sunsmile oral hygiene program.  Have You?  If not I encourage you to place your order soon with a Sunrider IBO.

 These products are very economical, because they are concentrated.  A tube of the toothpaste  will last a long time, and is cheaper in the long run, than other brands. And Sunrider's Sunsmile products are much more effective.  Give it a try today.

It is important to preserve our teeth.  They work so much better than the "store bought" oral hygiene products.
Don't delay, Start you day, the Sunrider Way!!

Your Sunrider Friend,
Sharon Farnsworth Ekins
