Or, do you have a few minor health worries, but chalk them up to "I'm getting older, what do you expect?"
If one of those statements reflects your sentiments, wise up! Now, when you are young; or now, when you are older and healthy; or now, when you are just easing into middle age is the time to act. Don't wait, or you'll cause yourself unnecessary health worries and health expenses.
Look at it this way. You regularly change the oil in your car. If you wait too long, you risk ruining your engine and experiencing car repair hassles and big bills, or buying a new car. The same holds true with your health. By practicing health maintenance-changing your oil-you can avoid big health hassles and big health expenses as you age. And, you can't go out and buy a new body!
Heart attack: A by-pass operation costs some US $41,000. Estimates for overall heart attack costs average some US $212,000. Exercise and diet reduce the risk and cost.
Osteoporosis: Hip fracture surgery runs to some US $23,000. Many experts say that at least 1/3 of all osteoporotic fractures may have a nutritional basis. Exercise, diet, and supplementation cost little.
Cancer: The cost per year of life gained is US $82,845 for patients with solid tumors (stomach, breast, lung and genital cancers), US $189,339 for patients with leukemia or lymphatic cancers, and US $449,544 for other cancers. Treatment for breast cancer averages some CDN $30,000. Studies have shown that eating carotenoid-rich fruits and vegetables may reduce risk of cancer by nearly 50 percent and slow progression of existing tumors.
Colds and flu: In 1995, flu deaths accounted for 6.5 percent of all deaths worldwide. Colds and the flu also result in countless sick days at school and work. Rest, exercise, and supplements may be able to cut sick days in half.
Constipation: Constipation is the most common digestive disorder in the United States and some $200 million is spent annually on medication. An easier solution is to eat more fiber.

The Council for Responsible Nutrition has announced that the appropriate use of dietary supplements has the following potential benefits:
The Healthy Cell Concept considers the cell as the starting point for health. The cell is the basic unit of the body, and cells form to create tissue, which forms organs, and combinations of organs form our body systems. It makes sense then, that if we keep the cell healthy, we are healthy.
The Pefect Health Maintenance Product?Fiber is one of the premier health maintenance foods you can consume. No less than the U.S. Food and Drug Administration allows health claims on fiber and cancer and fiber (including psyllium) and heart disease, when combined with low intake of fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol.
Another key to health maintenance is detoxification. This is the process of eliminating the harmful substances that make their way into our bodies every day. These include food additives and pollutants from air and water. Fiber helps detoxify.
"Herbal Fiberblend" combines fiber and cleansing herbs to provide you with the perfect product to safeguard your health.
