I have received a number of queries from interested reads about the product I use
(to keep up my appearance among other uses) and market. Rather than take the time
to answer each one individually I decided to write a couple of articles about the most asked questions, and hope those who asked the questions would find the articles.
One place I know they will be is in the reprint section at this url. http://www.faithwriters.com/websites/my_website.php?id=28340
I know they will be there because I showcase most of my articles there. (1) it
is my favorite reading site and I think it will be yours once you go there and (2) I like to reach Christians and this is the best site, although there are others,
on the Internet to do that.

Even the American Medical Association (AMA) has conceded that because people do not eat a proper diet, they recommend that all adults and teenagers should regularly take a multi-vitamin/mineral supplement.
Mounting research suggests what native folk healers have thought for centuries that the mangosteen fruit may be helpful for a variety of conditions ranging from diarrhea and skin infections to arthritis and diabetes.
The next article will discuss free radicals, proanthocyanidins and catechins, and if we have room we'll discuss polysaccharides and sterols as well as xanthones. If not, there will be
