Oriyen Cranberry Chewable Tabletscontain NutriCran®, a concentrated juice extract from the famous North American cranberries supplied by Decas, a renowned producer with over 70 years experience in growing and processing cranberries. The company employs a state-of-the-art chemical solvent-free extraction process that preserves 100% of the cranberry’s natural nutrients without adding any preservatives, additives or artificial colouring.
Researchers (including ones from Rutgers University in New Jersey and the University of Michigan ) have shown that cranberry offers protection against certain antibiotic-resistant bacteria that can cause urinary tract infections (UTIs). Cranberry prevents UTI-causing bacteria from adhering to urinary tract walls so they can be flushed out with the urine stream before doing any damage.
Researchers have found that drinking three glasses of cranberry juice a day significantly raises the level of ‘good cholesterol’ in the blood and increase plasma antioxidant levels, thus reducing the risk of heart disease.
With a potent formula consisting of no less than 35% organic acids, 9% quinic acid, anthocyanin, procyanidin and other nutrients, 2 chewable tablets are equivalent to the goodness of 100 grams of fresh cranberries.
Because cranberries can prevent bacteria from adhering to teeth, taking these tablets can promote good dental health and minimise dental plaque and dental caries (tooth decay). They literally cleanse your mouth as you chew!
The antioxidant power of cranberries enhances general health so your skin stays healthy and younger looking.
No Added Sugar!
Chewable tablets are tastier and healthier than ordinary cranberry drinks that are bitter-sour and/or high in calories.
Suitable for those who want to avoid high-sugar drinks or supplements. Great for everyone, including the elderly and children who are prone to urinary tract infections.
Directions for Use:
As dietary supplement: 2 tablets daily
For health enhancement: 4 tablets daily

We are constantly bombarded with messages from the media telling us that foods we have consumed for years are suddenly bad for us. One day eggs are good for you, the next day they are bad for your heart – what is the actual situation now?
You can’t afford to miss the information in the new movie “Food Matters” – Click the Title to find out more.
You need to eat more leafy green vegetables, reduce your consumption of bad fats (saturated animal fats), increase your consumption of good fats (like olive oil and avocado), eat quality lean protein, eat more fish (but beware of the mercury!), reduce your intake of sugar. Eat fewer processed foods. So what is the bottom line? What are nutritionists trying to tell you? It all boils down to the fact that what you don’t eat is more important than what you do eat.
Start From Zero
The best way to figure out what you should be eating to live up to your highest health potential is to start from recording what you are eating. It’s so easy to forget that extra bit of something. So, use your digital camera or phone camera. Every time you eat, stop, think, take a picture. Remember that the camera doesn’t lie. At the end of each day, write a list of the foods shown in those pictures. This may take a while, but you will be able to see that most foods can be broken down into a few simple categories at their basic ingredients:
Meat (beef, pork,chicken, fish, other seafood, etc)
Now take out a fresh piece of paper and add only the items that fall under the category of fruits and vegetables. This is what is called starting from zero. Remove everything that does not contribute to your health and only add back those items that you know are good for you. Mark whether the food is natural or processed. Aim for unprocessed, preferably organic, fruit and vegetables.
Why Fruits and Vegetables?
The governments of the world recommend that you eat between 5 to 10 fruits and vegetables every day. This recommendation is a great one and it has helped dozens of people lose weight and become healthier. It’s easy eat 5 to 10 fruits and vegetables a day by eliminating other snacks like muffins, cakes or cookies. Apples, bananas, mandarin’s, oranges are easy to take with you almost anywhere, just wash them at home to make life a bit easier. Find out more about the colors of fruit & vegetables HERE
It is only by eliminating the unhealthy, extraneous or over-processed foods that you will be able to incorporate the recommended quantity of healthy ones.
The Building Blocks of Health
Think of this exercise as a way to build up your health, starting from the base. By eliminating meat, dairy and aggravating grains from your diet you prepare your body for proper nutrition. You allow yourself to cleanse and you provide your body with all the enzymes, the minerals and the vitamins that your body requires for proper functioning.
Find out more about Enzymes by viewing our Enzyme SeriesHERE
Looking at the new list of healthy foods, you might see that it needs to be improved upon a bit. Why not add some new and exotic fruits and vegetables that you never tried before? Add more healthful grains in the form of brown rice, quinoa, barley and buckwheat if you find you need something denser. Old fashioned foods like rolled oats are great for you as well as tasting good.
Give Yourself a New Start
By starting fresh you give your body a break and a chance to rejuvenate itself. If you decide that you would like to add some of the things from the original list back into your diet, do so only 30 days after this exercise. Then watch to see how your body reacts to this newly added food. If you don’t experience any side effects then you can continue to eat it, once again. Otherwise you have proof that it was never that good for you in the first place.

Colonleaf is an all natural formula that cleanses your colon helping you lose weight and remove deadly toxins from your body. It is derived from 100% natural ingredients and concentrates on cleansing your colon while providing you with the best possible detox program. Thousands of users have felt a decrease in weight, constipation, and fatigue.
Colonleaf will not change your bowel patters. When you do go, it will make the process easier and you will experience a more rewarding feeling.
Is there anything I need to know before using Colonleaf?
If you have been regularly using over-the-counter or prescription medications, then it’s a good idea to consult with your health care provider or physician before starting a new dietary supplement program.
Should I use Colonleaf if I’m pregnant?
Cleansing of the colon is not recommended for pregnant or nursing women. However it is recommended after giving birth (if not nursing) to control the excess weight gained during pregnancy.
The concept of Colon cleansing is ancient. It is both safe and effective for everyone of all ages. Colon cleansing is essential to your well-being and for the elimination of waste products and toxins. A detoxification and cleansing program is preventive health care and there is no better way to rid your body of toxins and contamination. It may surprise you to find out that Colon cleansing can provide relief of many ailments.
Toxins, especially drugs, can damage or destroy beneficial bacteria, allowing harmful bacteria to take over producing by-products like ammonia, purines, and ethionine, which can cause cancer. Toxins are more prevalent today today than they have ever been, with processed food and food additives. Advocates for colon cleansing believe that it provides health benefits by removing these toxins from their bodies, and boosting their energy and immune systems. When toxins have built up in your body, they eventually find a way of coming out, being expressed in the form of such problems as diarrhea, pimples, acne, liver spots, boils, bad odor and perspiration, bad breath, etc. The body finally gives up the battle and succumbs to cancer, heart disease, tuberculosis, and other fatal conditions.
I believe that there are many benefits of colon cleansing. These benefits not only include health benefits, but also in how it relates to ones appearance as the skin looks more vibrant; blemishes, cellulite, and water retention disappear; and the whites of the eyes regain a youthful clearness. Some of the potential benefits of a colon cleansing may include a decrease in gas or bloating, more radiant skin and hair, and an overall slimmer appearance. Other benefits that people claim after the cleansing include the alleviation of menstrual pain, migraines, joint pain, skin problems, weight loss, breast cysts, sinus congestion, improved concentration, and many others. If you have ever been diagnosed with any of these problems, it would be foolish not to proceed with some type of cleansing program because the benefits far exceed the risks. Colon cleansers can help restore bodies to their optimum function, thus increasing the nutritional benefits that our bodies receive from the food that is digested.
Colon cleansing is preventive health care and there is no better way to rid your body of toxins that can cause many illnesses. It is a safe and effective alternative to problems that normally can only be treated with medication. A healthy colon is essential to good health, which makes colon cleansing a must.

Thinking you will be young forever. Youth is very forgiving of late nights, early mornings, and poor eating habits. Later in life that the sins of your youth can catch up with you. Too much alcohol, sun exposure or other bad habits can leave lasting ill effects. As you age, the signs of excess in your youth will start appearing.
Solution: Realize you’re not “bullet proof”, and look after your health and well-being from any early age. It’s never too early to be aware of your body’s needs.
Common Mistake Number 2.
Eating too much fast food laden with sugar, salt and fats. Sure it’s a quick fix when you’re hungry and in a rush, but is the lingering regret worth it?
Solution: THINK before you eat. Look for better quality offerings. It’s actually becoming easier to find fast food which is healthier. If you can only find pizza, then add a salad and cut down on the number of pizza slices you consume. Beware of salad dressings, use olive oil and vinegar to get the benefits of both.
Common Mistake Number 3
Not drinking enough water. It’s a fact that a majority of people are trying to get through their busy lives in a dehydrated state.
Solution: Drink 9 to 12 glasses of water each day. Seem too much or too difficult? Drink 1 glass on waking, 1 glass before breakfast, 1 glass after you clean your teeth in the morning, 1 glass mid-morning, 1 glass after each time you go to the restroom (say 4/5 times a day), 1 glass before lunch, 1 glass mid-afternoon, 1 glass when you get home from work, 1 glass before dinner, 1 glass after dinner, 1 glass after you clean your teeth in the evening. Use daily events as “triggers” for your water consumption. Try to drink purified, energized water at all times.
Common Mistake Number 4
Smoking cigarettes. It’s now well recognized that smoking is extremely detrimental to your health. Also avoid “second hand” smoke.
Solution: Never smoke, simply don’t start. If you currently smoke give it up – your body will love you for it. Keep away from places where you’ll be exposed to smoke.
Common Mistake Number 5
Thinking it’s too late to do anything to improve your health. Don’t give up on you!
Solution: Remember that the cells in your body are constantly being renewed. Give your cells the best possible chance to be repaired and rejuvenated. Nourish your body with natural superfoods to provide concentrated nutrition and antioxidants, keep your body alkalized, hydrated and detoxified.
Don’t wait until you get symptoms of illness. Prevention is always better than cure.
Your best health insurance is to take good care of your body. Nourish your body with nutrients from natural superfoods and energized water. Detoxify to reduce the toxic load on your cells. Alkalize yourself by creating your personal firewall against an acidic body.
What do you do if you, or someone you know has become ill? I would recommend the following:-
Aim to detoxify by:-
Drinking lots ofHexagon Energized water to properly hydrate your cells with water at the correct pH.
Taking lots ofChlorella to provide nutrients PLUS chlorella binds with and eliminate toxins
Plus, eat as many raw foods as you can, preferably organically grown. Check out the nutrition in fruit and vegetables by downloading you free chartsHERE. Find out more about the phyto-nutrients in fruit and vegetablesHERE
Get some Vitamin D – have your 15 minutes of sun exposure per day.
Breathe pure air, get an air purifier for your home. Did you know that the air inside your home is often more polluted than the air outside?

Frequently Asked Questions
1. I heard that liquid vinegar is very effective. Why should I choose vinegar in a tablet form?
Vinegar tablets are actually more concentrated and more effective than liquid vinegar. Highly concentrated vinegar extract would be too sour for consumption in liquid form. In order to give you multiple benefits, different types of concentrated vinegars are blended into each tablet. Liquid vinegar usually only contains one or two types. Finally, tablets are obviously more convenient; you can take them any time, anywhere.
2. Can I chew the vinegar tablet?
No. It is much better to swallow the tablet with water. The best way to take a vinegar tablet is to take a sip of water leaving a bit of water in your mouth, then place the tablet into your mouth and swallow immediately. Drink more water if required.
3. Can I take vinegar tablets with other beverages (such as fruit juice) instead of warm water?
Yes. However, we do not recommend that you take vinegar tablets with dairy-based or high protein beverages.
4. Can I take vinegar tablets with hot water?
Yes, the temperature will not affect the vinegar, but it’s important to make sure that you do not use water that could scald your mouth.
5. I’m healthy and not suffering from any aches and pains, is there a need for me to take vinegar tablets?
Vinegar tablets can help anyone to maintain health. They are especially great for people who have stressful lifestyles and unhealthy eating habits because vinegar tablets help to counteract acidity in the body.
6. Can I take vinegar tablets while I’m on other health supplements?
Certainly. Vinegar tablets will not reduce the efficacy of other supplements. In fact, they help the body to absorb nutrients such as Vitamin B Complex, Calcium and Iron better. Vinegar tablets also offer many other health benefits. However, we do not recommend taking vinegar tablets along with probiotics supplements.
7. My body is weak, and I was advised to avoid sour foods. Since vinegar is very sour, will taking vinegar tablets cause any undesirable effects to my body?
No, it will not. On the contrary, it benefits your body as it increases absorption of other nutrients.

Regulate Your Body pH To Restore & Maintain Prime Health
A healthy person’s blood pH level should be slightly alkaline (in the range of pH 7.35 – pH 7.45). However, most people today have an acidic blood level due to pollution, poor eating habits, stress and lack of exercise. This acidity adds to the stress of the organs involved in blood circulation and cleansing, such as the liver, heart, kidneys, spleen, pancreas, etc. As a result of this stress, many organs start to deteriorate, which may lead to health conditions, diseases and ailments such as fatigue, body aches and cardiovascular diseases that could develop into chronic diseases or even cancer.
An acidic body is primarily caused by a diet high in meat or refined carbohydrates. The lack of dietary fibre leads to the accumulation of animal fats, resulting in hardening of the blood vessels and stress on the organs. Once weakened, the body is susceptible to disease.
The Crucial Influence of pH Level on Health
The advantages of blood alkalinity
Blood that is slightly alkaline flows much smoother in the body. This efficient circulation allows greater amount of oxygen and nutrients to be transported and absorbed by the body. This helps to raise the metabolic rate, increase cell vitality, and improve overall energy. Slightly alkaline blood not only prevents arteries from hardening, but also reduces the amount of deposited fat on the arterial walls. This free blood flow helps reduce the potential for and symptoms of many cardiovascular diseases.
Slight alkalinity is a sign of good health; it indicates that the body’s immune system i.e. natural resistance and healing capacity, is in good condition, and able to resist the onset of many diseases.
The disadvantages of body acidity
Acidic blood has a higher viscosity. This prevents smooth blood flow, leading to poor oxygen transfer. The poor flow rate also leads to the hardening of blood vessels.
Cholesterol, adipose tissue, triglycerides, and other harmful compounds tend to accumulate on the cell wall when the blood is acidic. This can result in atherosclerosis (narrowing of arteries) and can accelerate hardening of the blood vessels, or lead to the accumulation of toxins in the body which can cause chronic disease.
Are you plagued by an acidic body?
Answer the following questions to find out for yourself!
If you have 5 or more of the listed symptoms, then there is a high chance that your body is acidic.
Move or perform tasks at a very slow pace. (You have the will but not the strength to perform tasks.)
Feel sleepy when you ride in a car or drive
Feel tired after mild exercise. Short of breath (panting) when walking up or down the stairs
Suffer from poor memory and concentration
Experience coldness in the limbs
Bruise easily, experience frequent skin breakouts, or bleeding gums
Prone to eczema
Have dull complexion or acne
Suffer from athlete’s foot
Tend to suffer infections (pus) on wounds
Suffer a protruding abdomen even though overall average in size.
Easily put on weight / Difficulty controlling body weight
Suffer from constipation or frequent diarrhoea
Have bad breath
Frequently suffer from tinnitus
Frequently feel dizzy, feeling very tired especially in the afternoons
Have weak immune system; prone to flu and fever
Frequently bitten by mosquitoes / insects
Lifestyle and diet
If you check 5 or more boxes, your lifestyle and diet could be contributing to an acidic body.
Frequent all-nighters or late nights (sleep after 1am)
Drink less than 2000ml of water each day, or drink water that is acidic (distilled water, RO water)
Like to eat processed food, fried food or sweet snacks
Lack physical exercise
Live or work under constant pressure , and usually find it difficult to de-stress
Constantly in a polluted environment (surrounded by second hand cigarette smoke, waste gas from factories, etc.)
Do not be “ambushed” by acid
Humans are born with a body that is slightly alkaline, but on average, our bodies tend to become acidic after the age of 25. This is due to ageing, environmental and food pollution, poor diet, stress, unhealthy, sedentary lifestyle, overworking, etc. Acidity can be the cause of many diseases because it impedes normal enzyme functions. In a study carried out by the University of Tokyo, up to 90% out of the 600 cancer patients surveyed have an acidic body, of which, 85% have pH levels of 5.8 and below. “Immune cells” are adversely affected by acidity and may succumb to cellular poisoning or death if exposed to it for prolonged periods. With the immune cells severely depleted or damaged, virus and other disease-causing agents can wreak havoc in the body. Approximately 40 million members of Japan’s various “golden years” clubs are actively promoting vinegar as one of the best products for reducing fatigue, and returning the body to its normal alkaline pH level. These Japanese in their golden years drink large amounts of “vinegar” during meals to improve overall bodily functions and revitalise the organs. It is no coincidence that the Japanese have the highest human life expectancy in the world!
The best way to overcome an acidic body is to consume more alkaline food and beverages.
Most vegetables, garlic, mushrooms, onion, wheatgrass, etc.
Algae: chlorophyta, spirulina, seaweed, etc.
Most fruits: apple, banana, lemon, grape, orange, watermelon, pineapple, Japanese plum, strawberry, etc.
Sprouts like alfalfa…
Almost all meat products: beef, chicken, pork, duck
Almost all seafood: fish, oyster, prawns, etc.
Most grains & beans: flour, bread, corn, plain rice, noodles, pasta, biscuit, wheat, barley, etc.
Dairy products: butter, milk, cheese, cake, etc.
Almost all oil and fats, including corn oil and olive oil
Others: coffee, carbonated drinks, refined sugar, alcoholic drinks, medicine, food tainted with pesticides and insecticides, canned or pickled foods
If you regularly consume food that is high in calories and mainly consists of fat and protein, have inadequate physical exercise and high stress levels at work, you are likely to have a sluggish citric acid cycle and a huge accumulation of lactic acid in the blood stream.
You are also highly susceptible to obesity, muscle aches, high blood pressure, diabetes, and other chronic diseases. You might have to rely on medication if you do not start adjusting your diet, exercise, and lifestyle soon. However, you can easily bring your health back on the right track by improving your citric acid cycle with the introduction of natural acetic acid (vinegar) into your diet.
Vinegar – Your Personal Firewall Against Diseases
1. Eliminates fatigue & reduces muscle aches
Lactic acid tends to accumulate in the body after strenuous exercises or from consuming too much meat. This build up of lactic acid causes tiredness, fatigue, stiff shoulders, natalgia / sore lower back, inflammation of the joints and shoulders, sciatic nerve pain / pelvic pain, neuralgia / aching nerves, knee neuralgia / sore knees, shoulder neuralgia / spinal aches, etc. Lactic acid also causes poor blood circulation, resulting in blood acidity, which is one of the main causes of neuralgia. Lactic acid combines with protein to form lactic protein, which causes shoulder soreness and neuralgia / lower back pain, as well as arterial hardening if it is allowed to accumulate in the blood.
2. Transforms an acidic body
All patients suffering from chronic diseases and cancer have an acidic body, which is also the case for those who consume a large amount of meat in their diet. This is probably why people who consume large amounts of meat are more prone to cancer. The risk of disease is reduced when we reduce acidity in the body. Vinegar might taste sour (acidic) but it becomes alkaline once it enters the body, and taking it frequently will make the blood slightly alkaline which is the body’s healthy and natural state.
3. Revitalises cells, supports blood flow
The poly amino acids in vinegar cause red blood cells to be more flexible and able to pass smoothly through narrow capillaries to transport oxygen to all parts of the body, aiding cell revitalization. Smooth blood flow can help prevent high blood pressure, heart diseases and stroke. It also alleviates edema and varicose veins that are caused by poor blood circulation.
4. Cleanses blood, prevents arthritic pain
Clean blood is slightly alkaline and lower in viscosity. When we consume a lot of meat, our blood and body fluids become acidic and more waste products are produced during metabolism and energy output. This increase in waste matter puts additional stress on the kidneys and can lead to uremia in serious cases. Arthritic pains happen when there is too much uric acid in the blood stream; the waste increase in the blood also leads to higher blood viscosity which can result in hardened arteries. V inegar helps maintain a healthy alkaline level by preventing uric acid build up and body fluid acidification. It also promotes the excretion of deposited uric acid, reduces the burden on kidneys, prevents gout and solves each kind of fearful cardiovascular disease.
5. Relieves gastrointestinal discomforts
Nowadays, people often suffer from autonomic nerve abnormalities due to extreme pressure. Autonomic nerve abnormality results in an over production of gastric acid which lead to intestinal mucosal membrane injury, stomach wall hemorrhage, and gastric and duodenal ulcers. Acetic acid (also found in vinegar) is mildly alkaline so taking acetic acid can neutralize strong acids and alleviate ulcers caused by excessive gastric juice.
In times of low gastric acid production, the acetic acid in vinegar can play the role of gastric acid and help in the digestion and absorption of food. At the same time, its antibacterial properties promote the healing of the affected areas.
6. Facilitates calcium absorption
The smell, taste and composition of vinegar can stimulate alimentary organs / digestive system and enhance digestion and absorption of nutrients in food. Vinegar also improves the breakdown of food into its nutritious components for easy absorption by the body. For example, calcium and vinegar can combine into calcium acetate that is easily absorbed by the body. In this way, vinegar helps the body absorb more calcium. The citric acid in vinegar enters the body and promotes the full utilisation of calcium by the body; the results are stronger bones, less mood swings, and a better night’s sleep.
7. Fights obesity
Most weight loss medications on the market fight obesity by suppressing the absorption of calories, but this can lead to poor nutrient uptake and have adverse effects on health. Consuming vinegar assists calorie burning while maintaining adequate nutrient intake. When food is consumed, the digestion process converts sugar into glucose, oil and fat into fatty acids, and protein into amino acids. These nutrients require acetic acid (available in vinegar) to act as a catalyst before they can enter the citric acid cycle to be converted into energy for the body. In the absence of acetic acid as a catalyst, these nutrients will turn into fat and be stored in our body. Consuming vinegar not only improves digestion and nutrient absorption, but it also boosts metabolism and caloric expenditure for optimised energy – so no excess calories are left to be converted to fat.
8. Eases constipation
Vinegar improves metabolism and promotes the excretion of waste from the body. It also supports intestinal elasticity and the production of carbonic acid that facilitates bowel movement. Some people who consume highly concentrated vinegar are even known to excrete oil from their body during bowel movement, and this phenomenon can be attributed to the ability of vinegar to break down fats.
9. Beautifies the skin and improves complexion
Lipid peroxidation refers to the oxidative degradation of lipids. It is the process whereby free radicals “steal” electrons from the lipids in cell membranes, resulting in cell damage and causing signs of ageing . Vinegar helps prevent lipid peroxidation, promote skin metabolism and prevent the production of brown spots, keeping skin fair, young, and healthy.
In short, vinegar can alleviate a host of skin conditions including dermatitis, brown spots, acne , eczema, etc . by improving metabolism, blood circulation, and fat metabolism in the skin.
10. Prevents diabetes
The number of diabetic patients is rising in many countries all over the world. The major reasons for this are an imbalanced diet, insufficient exercise as well as poor lifestyle habits and increasing stress at work.
Sugar, protein and fat that our body absorbs are burned to produce energy. Insulin is needed for the absorption of glucose (converted from sugar) into cells. However, when there is insufficient insulin, this glucose remains in the blood stream instead of being absorbed into cells and is then excreted from the body via urine, causing excessive sweet urine (glycosuria) or diabetes mellitus.
Consuming large amounts of vinegar (acetic acid) on a regular basis can increase the activity of acetic acid in the body. This enhances the citric acid cycle and converts glucose into energy for full utilisation by cells. In this way, vinegar helps solve diabetic problems caused by incomplete glucose metabolism in the body.
11. Prevents cold & flu
The best way to prevent a cold or flu is by strengthening the body’s immune system. The abundance of vitamins found in vinegar can help prevent cold and flu and reduce fatigue. Vitamin A is closely related to the formation of glycoprotein which helps moisten the mucous membrane and prevent the invasion of filterable viruses. Vinegar’s preventive powers are enhanced when taken in conjunction with a diet high in yellow-green vegetables. Vinegar is also rich in Vitamin C that is good for suppressing the flu virus and the spread of infection. The Vitamin B1 in vinegar reduces fatigue, fights cold and flu and maintains optimal bodily functions.
12. Reduces hangovers
As vinegar can accelerate the citric acid cycle, taking concentrated vinegar before and after drinking alcohol helps prevent drunkenness and cure hangovers. The consumed alcohol is rapidly broken down in the citric acid cycle, relieving your liver from the stress of breaking down alcohol.
“Vinegar” – the master of pH balancing – Sir Hans Adolf Krebs (Dr. Krebs), awarded the Nobel Prize in 1953 and 1964, proved that the modern man’s diet contains too much animal fat, protein, and high calorie foods that can lead to an acidic body.
To combat the problem, “pH balancing” has become one of the most important daily tasks for healthy living. The basic principle of good health is to keep the pH level of the body slightly alkaline (between pH 7.35 and pH 7.45), so the body is best able to fend off disease.
Vinegar is one of the food products that can rapidly improve the blood acid level. In just 2 hours, it can bring your body back to a healthy alkaline level, possibly saving your life!
Vinegar is your good friend in your pursuit of good healthPrevention is better than cure, and a stitch in time saves nine – the same applies to our health. If we wait till disease strikes before we pay attention to health, it’s too late. Focus on prevention can cut down on pain, suffering and medical bills.
According to a study by the World Health Organization (WHO), modern medical science can only identify 10% of the symptoms of diseases; the other 90% of disease symptoms are hidden and cannot be identified with our current technology and methods. There are so many different health care products on the market, why choose vinegar? The reason is that vinegar has a broad range of benefits, ranging from slimming, improving metabolism, reducing urea acid, alleviating hangovers, lightening the skin, removing blemishes, balancing body pH level, etc.
Vinegar can quickly return the body to a healthy alkaline level, and help maintain this level, so it promotes cell revitalization and reduces the chances of contracting diseases.
Chronic diseases strike vegetarians too, albeit at a lower rate than non-vegetarians. Many monks, priests and sages consume large quantities of vinegar to maintain good health as vinegar can aid in the breaking down of grain and vegetable proteins. Especially in those suffering from anaemia due to nutrition imbalance, vinegar can break down the consumed nutrients, so that they can be easily and quickly absorbed by the body.
The faster the nutrient uptake, the faster the body’s health improves. Vinegar is known as the antidote to an acidic body, and highly concentrated vinegar can effectively protect a person from chronic diseases.

The Japanese are renowned for longevity, low cancer rate and excellent skin condition. Part of the reason lies in their regular diet of Ume, the Japanese plum. Considered an indispensable food, these plums are taken after every meal to aid digestion and improve assimilation of nutrients for enhanced general health and vitality.
Oriyen Japanese Plum Balls are obtained from the concentrated extract of Ume. The extract is then combined with Wild Japanese Mountain Yam or Jinenjo, a digestive aid that enhances its potency. The mixture is sculpted into easy-to-swallow plum balls.
Two Oriyen Japanese Plum Balls are equivalent to one fresh plum of 25 grammes. The people of Japan take an average of 5 fresh plums (equivalent to 10 plum balls) a day as part of their diet. Children in Japan are given an average of 2.5 fresh plums (equivalent to 5 plum balls) as a part of their daily diet. Make plum balls part of your diet to enjoy the longevity and vitality of the Japanese!
