New Product Reviews with Lee Swanson — What's New for August 2013?

Dear Friends and Valued Customers:

This month we pick right up where we left off last month with another breakthrough in anti-aging nutrition science. I’m very proud to announce our new collaboration with another world-leader in human nutrition and pharmaceutical applications, GELITA USA.

Continuing our tradition of going right to the source, my product development team and I recently visited GELITA’s North American headquarters in Sergeant Bluff, IA, to learn more about their newest anti-aging innovation, Verisol® Bioactive Collagen Peptides®. Verisol is the cornerstone ingredient in our new Beauty Drink Mix formula that is now available at


Beauty Drink Mix—Healthy Skin Reveal from Within

There are a lot of excited folks here at Swanson Health Products thanks to the launch of this new product. They’re excited about Verisol’s clinical studies showing how it can reduce the appearance of those fine lines and wrinkles. They’re excited that it can promote skin hydration and skin elasticity for timeless beauty from within. And we’re all excited that it’s so easy to take (just mix one packet of powder into a glass of cold water and enjoy).

The problem with traditional skincare products like creams and lotions is that they only really work on the outermost layer of your skin. They are many excellent options available, but beauty is more than skin deep, as the saying goes. Verisol works from the inside out, nourishing the deepest layers of your skin, building a healthy foundation that radiates outward. For more information, I invite you to read my full article about our trip down to the GELITA headquarters.

Osamine® Wild Shrimp Glucosamine—Ultra-Pure Joint Support

As a lifelong golfer, this product is really fascinating to me. Walking a full 18 holes out on the golf course isn’t as easy as it used to be in my younger years. Products like glucosamine have helped me maintain my joints and my mobility, but the more I learn about joint nutrition the more I’ve come to realize that not all products are created equal.

That’s why I brought in this new ultra-pure glucosamine supplement. Osamine® glucosamine is sourced from the purest, wild caught and sustainable shrimp. What more, the makers of Osamine are among the only producers to adhere to strict environmental standards for “zero discharge” manufacturing, which helps protect the waters and the environment. Read more about this eco-friendly glucosamine and learn how it can help you maintain your mobility and active lifestyle.


Probiotic Powder for Kids—Sugar Free!

By now the health benefits of probiotics are very well established. Even many mainstream doctors will tell you that a good probiotic is a smart addition to any dietary supplement regimen. We adults have many options and formulas to choose from, but for kids, the options aren’t always as easy to find... until now.

Our new Probiotic Powder for Kids is a no-sugar-added probiotic supplement designed to be easy and painless to take for kids of most any age. No longer do you have to fight with breaking open capsules and cleaning up that inevitable mess. Just add one scoop of our new powder to a small glass of water and it’ll go down easy. It’s a great way to add beneficial Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium lactis to your child’s diet, giving his immune system and GI tract a healthy boost.




What Else is New This Month?


Kombucha Update:

In the current issue of the Swanson Health Products catalog, we feature a new Full Spectrum® Kombucha capsule that we are very excited about. Unfortunately, I must apologize that it is not yet available for purchase. We experienced some difficulties in securing the right raw ingredients and did not want to release a sub-par product. Therefore, we made the difficult decision to wait until we got everything we needed to deliver the high-quality you expect from Swanson.

But with a website now featuring over 17,000 products, I’m very happy to highlight a few national brand kombucha products that you are certainly welcome to try:

Pronatura Original Kombucha Capsules

Garden of Life Vitamin Code RAW Kombucha (this product is also gluten free)

Yogi Tea Green Tea Kombucha (this tea is also available in decaf)


Thank you for taking the time to review with me our newest products and formulations. I look forward to this monthly update with you. Please feel free to post a comment below and share with me which products intrigue you most and which products you’re still waiting for us to develop. Your ideas and opinions are always welcome.

As always, I wish you the very best of health,

Lee Swanson
