These AmeriSciences® products are very distinctive in the fields of nutritional supplements / nutraceuticals for the following reasons:-
Manufactured and tested to pharmaceutical grade standards
The highest quality and purity available so that you know exactly what you are putting into your body – no more, no less. This is essential for long term use.
95% bioavailability guaranteed
This means that at least 95% of the vitamins, minerals and phyto-nutrients in the supplements can be absorbed by your body – compared with the more typical industry averages of as little as 25%.
Astronauts Test Use of Nutritional Supplements in Space
After nearly four years of joint research of Houston-based AmeriSciences® and NASA / Johnson Space Center (JSC), a senior NASA medical officer has confirmed that two of the resulting nutritional supplement formulas were used and tested in space by the astronauts of mission STS-125 of May 11, 2009 and the mission STS-127 of July 15, 2009 and are now in use and testing aboard the International Space Station.
This marks a milestone in the advancement of a project between AmeriSciences® and NASA/JSC to develop nutritional supplements for the astronauts to meet the needs of long-duration space flight as well as conditioning here on Earth. Commenced through a Space Act Agreement between AmeriSciences® and NASA/JSC back in the fall of 2005, this joint research effort has now progressed to in-flight testing as well as clinical ground studies to determine safety and effectiveness of the resulting formulations.
What is it?
Himalayan Rock Salt originates from the primal seas of millions of years ago, where life began. It was dried by the sun at a time where pollution did not exist. Despite what we have been led to believe, salt is equally as important to the human body as water. Obviously, we are not talking about refined table salt which is little more than a white poison.
What’s in it?
Himalayan Rock Salt is totally pure and contains every mineral and trace element found in the human body.
What can It be used for?
• As long as you’re drinking enough water, salt is absolutely essential for the body to generate hydroelectric energy, maintain good blood chemistry, and balance the correct amount of water in our blood and cells.
• Crystal salt helps to restore and balance the body’s energy and rebalance acid-alkaline levels.
How can It be used?
• As a “sole solution” (so-lay): To make a sole solution simply add a desert spoon of crystals into a glass jar then fill with water. Put the lid on and leave for 24hrs for the crystals to dissolve. Once dissolved add some more, up until such time that the crystals stop dissolving. At this point the solution is saturated at 26% and ready for consumption. Take 1 teaspoon every morning in a glass of water before breakfast. Just one glass of sole a day brings amazing benefits and has positive effects on health.
• Sports Hydration: If you are exercising and sweating a lot, it is vital that you replace your mineral levels as well as water levels to avoid sodium depletion. Using Himalayan Rock Salt in a weak solution with water is the most natural and effective way of re-hydrating your body. About a quarter of a teaspoon of salt for every litre of water is a good balance.
• Can be used to flush the sinuses.
• As an eye bath to restore moisture to dry eyes.
• As a cleansing bath that has a detoxifying effect.
• For beauty masks and wraps.
Our bodies have to maintain a fine PH (acid/alkaline) balance in order to keep us alive and healthy, if we are constantly consuming acidic forming foods and beverages (meat, sugar,alcohol,caffeine etc) than they will take nutrients from our organs and bones to neutralise the acids leaving us weakened and prone to disease. Our bodies will also store fat in order to disperse acid, making weight lose even harder to achieve. Some fruits are actually alkalising once metabolised, a juiced fresh lemon in some warm water 10 mins before breakfast is a great way to start your day, alternatively a teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar in warm water or Himalayan Rock Salt Sole ( has to be prepared in advance).
When we are under stress we tend to take short shallow breaths which leads to a build up of carbon dioxide making our blood acidic. After your morning hot water and lemon try sitting upright comfortably and take long slow deep breaths for 5-10 mins, not only will this alkalise your body but set you up to face your day in a relaxed positive manner.
Below is a list of Alkaline and Acid forming foods and beverages, to alkalise the body aim for 80/20 alkaline/acidic until the end of January and then 60/40 to maintain through the year.

|General Guidance:Stick to salads, fresh vegetables and healthy nuts and oils. Try to consume plenty of raw foods and at least 2-3 liters of clean, pure water daily.
||General Guidance:Steer clear of fatty meats, dairy, cheese, sweets, chocolates, alcohol and tobacco. Packaged foods are often full of hidden offenders and microwaved meals are full of sugars and salts. Over cooking also removes all of the nutrition from a meal.
Here’s how to indulge without the bulge
An easy way to remember portion sizes is as follows:
For carbohydrates, have an amount the size of your fist.
For protein, have a palm-sized portion (not including your fingers!).
For high-fat foods such as cheese, stick to a thumb-sized amount.
As for vegetables? You can have as many as you like. Except for potatoes – stick to one regular-sized spud. If you’re having mashed, follow the guide for carbs.
TRICKS TO HELP YOU EAT LESS:
Hide the treats! Keeping snacks covered or even out of reach will encourage you to eat less.
Don’t snack in front of the TV. We can easily eat an extra 300 calories or more when we’re sat watching TV.
“Keep your fork in your ‘wrong’ hand at a buffet,” advises nutritionist Amanda Ursell. “It’ll slow down your ability to load your plate.”
Blow out your candles. Researchers in California found that we eat more in dimly lit rooms.
Beware huge wine glasses: Drinking out of a smaller wine glass will reduce your intake of calories.
