MELATONIN "the miracle molecule”
N-acetyl-5-methoxytryptamine, the technical name for melatonin, has been heralded as “the miracle molecule” by Dr. Pierpaoli, one of the world’s foremost anti-aging researchers. As he points out, the value of melatonin as a sleep aid has overshadowed its other enormously impressive benefits. Researchers don’t know exactly what melatonin is, but they do know what it does.
Anti-Aging – It is the messenger of the pineal gland, the body’s “aging clock” to send a message of youth throughout the body, preventing aging.
Anti-Viral – Clinically proven to increase the immune system’s ability to fight off viral, bacterial, microbial and parasitic infections.
Heart Health – Reduces cholesterol levels, helps keep blood pressure at normal levels and counteracts harmful heart-damaging stress hormones call corticosteroids.
Cancer Prevention – Improves the body’s ability to identify and eradicate cells that might turn cancerous.
Sexual Health – The anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative stress effects of melatonin have been shown to help reverse erectile dysfunction in men. Increases the probability of success of in vitro fertilization treatments.
Eye Health – Found to be effective in treating and preventing a variety of eye diseases, including macular degeneration and glaucoma.
Gastrointestinal Health – The GI tract produces 400 times as much melatonin as the pineal gland. Found to provide relief for sufferers of IBS and IBD.
Sleep Disorders – Eases your body into the appropriate circadian rhythm, especially if using a time release form. Best taken at sunset to promote a more restful sleep.
Melatonin has a half-life of 40-60 minutes, meaning half of it is eliminated from your body within 40-60 minutes, half of the remaining amount in another hour and so on. Maybe this is why people have said "melatonin doesn't work for me." Look for "sustained release" which stays in the body 5-7 hours. Melatonin is required for every metabolic function of our bodies.
Melatonin is the keep-well and stay-well molecule that prevents and treats multiple health conditions, without any side effects. Free booklet while supplies last!

Why it Pays to Shop at Family Health Center
Remember back in 2020 when there was such demand for Elderberry that we ended up with a world-wide shortage? Many companies began to populate the internet with elderberry items for sale. One of our vendors paid for a 3rd party independent analysis of 25 different companies elderberry products. Of the 25 companies studied, only 6 actually had elderberry in their item! All of the other were just oat flour and filler. Just a reminder to be cautious when purchasing supplements online. You can trust ALL of your purchases at Family Health Center! We only carry the best items that are clinically studied and third party tested to ensure that our products are making a profound difference in your health.
Bile Flow is Critical for Good Health
Bile plays a critical role
in digestion and detoxification and is often overlooked, but bile is something you truly can’t live without! Produced by the liver, this thick fluid is sent through tiny ducts to the gallbladder where it’s stored until its needed.
Its primary job is to breakdown fats into particles small enough for your digestive system to process. When you don’t have a gallbladder, the bile flow is no longer regulated. Without controlled release of bile, your body isn’t able to absorb critical fat soluble vitamins or essential fatty acids.
Bile also helps the liver to flush out toxins. But in order for this to happen, bile has to be thin enough. The consistency of your bile is directly related to the quantity of toxins you
can eliminate. Thick, congested bile stops the detoxification process allowing toxins to reabsorb taking a toll on organs and joints.
Bile Builder’s ingredients work synergistically to help your body produce, thin out and move bile efficiently for optimum support.

History’s Most Nutrient-Dense Superfoods
Throughout history, people have used glandular tissues as food and as nutritional supplementation. They have been a good and natural way to improve general health or to treat specific ailments.
The logic underlying glandulars is that the gland of the animal is reasonably close in composition to that of a human. Animal organs can provide nutrients and enzymes highly specific to that organ, which promotes that organ’s health.
Animal glands contain most of the nutrients necessary for supporting healthy glandular function (in the same way that eating meat provides protein and amino acids needed to build or restore muscle). Glandulars are packed with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, polypeptides, fatty acids, enzymes, nucleic acid, and more. They’re an incredible source of fat-soluble vitamins which are easy for your body to absorb and retain. They promote balance in the body for optimal function.
Recapture what the modern diet lacks. These wild, grass-fed, clean organ blends will help you feel energized, youthful and ready for whatever comes your way. Targeted formulas for men and women are in-stock and available in our online store.
Choose from Grass-Fed Liver, Organs Blend, Women’s Vitality and Male Performance.
Signs and Symptoms of Vitamin D Deficiency
• Hair Loss
• Frequently Getting Sick
• Weak Bones
• Slow Wound Healing
• Muscle Aches
Optimal levels of Vitamin D, 50-80 ng/ml, are rarely reached unless you are supplementing with the natural form of Vitamin D - Vitamin D3. The general recommendation for dosing is 35iu per pound of body weight and doubling that amount during cold and flu season. During the winter months our levels can drop up to 50% if we are not actively working at improving our levels. An oil based Vitamin D3 should be taken with a meal that has a little fat for proper absorption and a plant based Vitamin D3 can be taken with or without food. Knowing your Vitamin D level is one of the most important health numbers to know!
Vitamin D3 is an amazingly effective anti-microbial agent, producing 200-300 different anti-microbial peptides in the body that kill bacteria, viruses and fungi. Vitamin D3 is needed for every age and for every season!
Ask about our home test kit. It is suggested that D levels should be tested every 4-6 months.
What are Probiotics?
The human body is made up of 100 trillion bacterial cells and only 10 trillion human cells.
Most of the body’s bacteria reside in the gut –
• 100 trillion bacterial cells in the digestive tract - roughly the weight of a brick (3-4 pounds)!
• Small intestine has a few billion bacterial cells.
• Large intestine has 10’s of trillions.
• Gut bacteria is known as our “microbiome”.
• The Gut – Brain Connection – the bacterial composition of our gut has a significant impact on our mood and general state of mind.
• Bacteria makes up approximately 60-80% of the dry mass of our stools.
• Probiotics are the “multi- vitamin for the Gut!”
• Each probiotic strain is different and does different things – there are many strains of the same species.
• We need multiple strains of each species.
• Look for probiotics with High Potency, High Strain Diversity, Multiple Prebiotics, Delayed Release, Stomach Acid Resistant, Potency Guaranteed until Expiration.
Symptoms of Magnesium Deficiency
• Stress • Low Energy • High Blood Pressure • Muscle Tension • Muscle Spasms and Cramps • Headaches • Inability to Sleep • Fatigue/Weakness • Abnormal Heart Rhythm • Irritability
• PMS and Hormonal Imbalances • Weakening Bones • Constipation • Nervousness/Anxiety • High Calcium • Calcification of Organs
It is estimated that 75% of the population – children, teens and adults – are deficient in magnesium. Magnesium deficiency can be caused by a number of stresses on the body: lack of adequate dietary magnesium, emotional stress, certain medications (diuretics, antibiotics, oral contraceptives, insulin, cortisone), heavy exercise, diabetes, gastrointestinal disorders and too much calcium in the diet.
Magnesium helps your muscles and nerves function properly; it keeps your heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system and also assists in keeping your bones strong. This essential mineral helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure and is required for producing and storing energy.
Many health experts recommend 600-900mg daily for optimal wellness. However, every individual’s needs are different – you may need 600mg up to 2000mg – your body will let you know!
We carry many forms of magnesium in various delivery systems: ionic liquids, capsules, powders and gummies. New Gummy Flavors from Garden of Life include Orange Cream and Peach. We can help you pick the right form of magnesium so that you can begin feeling what the “Magnesium Miracle” is all about.
