Magistral for men only

Immunotec Research Ltd., a Montreal company, is proud to announce Magistral For Men Only, a unique supplement for men with prostate problems.

Great-tasting fish oils

Our high quality oils taste great because they're fresh, not oxidized. It's only the not-so-fresh fish oils that taste ... well ... fishy.

In fact, independent lab tests show Nordic Naturals' oils are 10 to 30 times fresher than other brands. Plus, our patented flavouring process gives our oils and capsules a light, natural fruity flavour. So it's no surprise we were awarded the 2003 gold metal for best tasting fish oil in a blind taste test by the American Tasting Institute.

Start feeling your best today.

Try the Nordic Naturals brand of fruit flavoured fish oils, and you be the judge!

Restore hair vitality

Hair loss is not always irreversible. When stress, lifestyle, health and even hair grooming products cause excessive scalp perspiration and sebum production, an ongoing follicle plugging process follows. That process chokes hair by restricting the flow of protein and blood from the hair root. Women then experience progressively thinner hair and men develop the familiar male bald pattern. But in either case, the hair root may be a long way from dead. Margo Alive Triple Action Hair Restoring System can and does help restore hair growth. The herbs in the popular shampoo, and penetrating and revitalizing lotion combo kit go a long way toward ridding the follicles of the damaging plugs and stimulating growth from within the root. The economically priced kit lasts three to four months. To get more information about availability call toll free 1-800-667-1022 or visit
