Tavala’s Amazon Gold … The Inside “Scoop”

I reached out to a dear friend and colleague, Keli McBride when the new Amazon Gold product was recently introduced.  I knew she would help us understand the magnitude of what we have in this one product.

26 years ago Keli began her career in the nutritional supplement industry where she learned that we have way more power over our health than we know! She was fortunate enough to work closely with her company Nutritional Biochemist as well as our Corporate Nutritionist.  She shared that early on, she learned the concepts of Alternative and Complimentary Medicines and how when medicine is necessary like antibiotics, we can then compliment that protocol with probiotics in order to maintain gut health.

Introducing Amazon Gold…..Tavala’s newest product! 

In her own words….

“I had a light bulb moment… Amazon Gold + Quantum Relief Strips are a Power Couple!

Amazon Gold has a significant SIDE BENEFIT (liver support) for people who have been on or are taking over the counter pain relievers or pain medication. We know how toxic those products can be on the liver so of course I saw a total marriage between Amazon Gold and the Quantum Relief Strips. I swear I heard wedding bells.  (Quantum Relief Strips are a natural product for the relief of pain and discomfort.

Keli went on to say, I am currently using the strips to reduce my medication for pain. I’m 3 days into the Amazon Gold and I am feeling totally AWAKE on a CELLULAR LEVEL!

I’m feeling like a sports car that just got my oil changed, a new filter, new spark plugs and a full tank of gas. My body just feels alert and ready. I remember having an experience like this before when I did a liver cleanse. Soooooooo, let me share.

The liver is the body’s primary filter. It converts toxins into waste products that the body will eliminate. It also helps cleanse the blood and metabolize nutrients. As a result, it needs a lot of love and support.

Nutrients like Antioxidants, Essential Amino Acids (substances the body CAN NOT make), B vitamins, Vitamins C & E and Minerals like zinc and selenium along with omega fatty acids are important nutrients that support healthy everyday functioning of the liver and are found within the whole food Super Foods in Amazon Gold! Anything that we can do to protect liver cells while the liver works to rid the body of toxins is critical to overall health.

Superfoods are called Superfoods because they are nutrient dense. Combining antioxidant rich Superfoods such as Acai, Camu Camu and Cupuacu with power packed and antioxidant rich whole fruits in one formula provides what I like to call WHOLE BODY SUPPORT. Amazon Gold is such a product because it addresses many areas.

Given the variety of naturally occurring nutrients found within all these fruits, Amazon Gold is able to benefit the immune system, liver function, skin health (help protect skin against oxidative stress and UV light), heart health, circulation, glucose utilization and vascular integrity. “*
