Steviva $10 Gift Certificate

Have you ever seen that Ally Bank commercial where the man playing the bank representative gives one kid an ice cream cone and the other gets none? When the kid asks why, the representative says "well he's new". Here's the commercial if you want to watch it http://youtu.be/yl67TNDW-0Q.

Last week we sent a a no strings attached $10 gift certificate the could be used on any of our products in the Steviva Brands on-line store. This commercial reminded me that I should be offering the same to you. After all you are the ones who have helped build this company.

My accountant is going to go ballistic about basically giving away our products but, what the heck. You guys deserve it! Go to http://www.steviva.com/store/ and use gift certificate code QBQ25V0FY when checking out and you can redeem this no strings attached Steviva Brands $10 gift certificate.

If you don't have use for this $10 gift certificate feel free to send it to a friend and they can use it. It is good until September 15th 2011.

Not All Supplements Are Created Equal
5 Tips to pick out the best

Have you heard the saying, there is a pill for everything? Well, it seems to be somewhat true, whether it's for a medical condition such as anemia or constipation, or for performance enhancement athletically. The purpose and definition of a supplement is “that completes or enhances something else when added to it.” What is that something else? It is a good diet that is based in whole foods, plenty of fruits and vegetables, and lean protein. This also should be coupled with exercise, let's also put in good sleep, and less stress. You have heard this probably a million times before!

Ok, so given that, you are doing your best to meet those criteria, but it still isn't enough to meet your bodies' needs, so now you are turning to a pill. That pill could be a pharmaceutical, but ideally try a nutriceutical first. Nutriceuticals include dietary supplements as well as other categories of products based from food. Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, said “let food be your medicine and medicine be food.” Here are a few things to consider when purchasing supplements.

  1. The Delivery Method: Capsule, tablet, liquid or sublingual. Choosing the appropriate form is important as it can affect the results. For example, generally speaking, tablets are hard pills that may be difficult for your body to break down and absorb. An example maybe those multivitamins that are advertised by taking once per day. Sublingual means under the tongue, which is usually absorbed faster, Vitamin B12 is best in this form. Some form may also just be your preference.
  2. The Brand: Generic or brand name? Seems to be a dilemma in many industries. This is your health we are talking about, and my favorite saying is if we don't have health, what do we have? That being said, generally speaking, I recommend brand name. Occasionally generic maybe okay, and safer when it is a natural food store. The problem here can be that label and true contents may not match up. For example lets say you are looking a Probiotics, and label says you are getting 100 billion, but then 3 rd party testing shows that there are 50 billion.
  3. Location: Typically the better brands that have better results are usually found at health food stores, or doctors' offices (Naturopathic & Chiropractic). There are some other retailers that also may carry better supplements, such as The Vitamin Shoppe. For example a better fish oil brand is Nordic Naturals or Carlson's and those are carried there.
  4. Ingredients: We want supplements that are pure as possible, and it is best if the label says it is free of gluten, dairy, soy, egg, casein, and corn. Also stay away from food coloring, such as FD&C Yellow #6, or other similar additives or preservatives. If it is in capsule form this is usually made vegetarian.
  5. Form: If you are supplementing a vitamin, it is important to get the best bioavailable form, meaning the form that is most useful to your body, and best absorbed. For example, the citrate form of both iron and calcium is usually a better option.

It is always a good idea to check in with a doctor before taking anything, especially if you are on prescriptions or other supplements, there can be interactions.

The Power To Succeed is Yours
Max Steingart

Success on any major scale requires you to accept responsibility. Your life to a large extent is what you make of it. Nothing will happen by itself. It will all come your way once you understand that you have to make it come your way.

Choose the thoughts and actions that will lead you to success. Nobody can do it for you.
Only you can make it happen. You're the only one that has to live your life.

The day you take complete responsibility for yourself, the day you stop making any excuses, that's the day you start on the road to success.

You have the power to succeed at anything. The power to fulfill your dreams is within you.

Re-framing Misperceptions
over-coming prosperity issues on lack at a time

We all know what it feels like to want something we don’t have. It may be a pair of expensive jeans, a romantic partner, or rent money; it may be a certain attitude, a car, or a savings account. This is part of life, and in the best-case scenario, we experience a constant flow of money and material possessions, companions and experiences, in and out of our lives. However, many of us linger in a state of wanting and not having, a state of lack that never seems to subside. We consistently perceive ourselves as not having what we need or not having what we want. This is an energetically draining state to be in. It is also self-perpetuating because how we feel about ourselves determines what we are able to create for ourselves.

How we feel profoundly influences how we perceive our reality. When we feel we are lacking, we look around and see what is not there. On the other hand, if we feel abundant, we can look at the very same situation and see a completely different picture, one full of blessings and advantages. The more we see the blessings, the more abundant we feel, and the more blessings we attract. Similarly, if we see lack, we tend to create and attract that energy.

If you find yourself habitually residing in a feeling of lack, it may be due to a core belief formed in your childhood or even in a past life. It may be because you are out of touch with your inner divinity, which is the source of your abundance. In any case, know that your perception of lack is a misperception that can be corrected with awareness and effort. It can be as simple as taking 10 or 15 minutes each day to quiet your mind and imagine yourself in a state of unlimited abundance, handling the financial demands and others in your life with total ease, drawing from an endless supply of resources. Know that it is your birthright to be fully supported in the fulfillment of your needs and desires.
