  1. Laughter really is the best medicine

    A chuckle a day keeps the doctor away

    Ever have one of those days? The neighbor's dog won't stop barking... someone is parked in your space... and a bill arrives marked "Past Due" even though you KNOW you've paid it.

    When life's stresses get you wound up tighter than a banjo string, you don't need some Big Pharma happy pill or a dangerous muscle relaxer.

    What you DO need is a good laugh.

    A new study from Loma Linda University in California has found that a good, deep belly laugh produces the same relaxing effect on your brain as a full mediation session! Thirty-one research volunteers were shown videos that were either amusing, spiritual, or distressing (maybe an Obama campaign video?).

    Turns out funny videos produced the same healing gamma waves your brain generates when you meditate.

    And that's not just good news for you -- it's FANTASTIC news for me. Because let me tell you something -- if you ever find me lying on the floor humming, I'm not meditating. I'm having a stroke.

    New Age healing has never really been my thing. But if I can relax and give my brain a workout by watching a few Archie Bunker re-runs, sign me up!

    The truth is, the way you handle stress has an enormous impact on your health. A poor stress response can make you fat, trigger heart disease and can even cause cancer!

    And the mainstream doesn't have any answers for you -- but the Smothers Brothers might. So the next time you're feeling stressed, pop in a DVD of your favorite comedy show and put your feet up. You may be adding years to your life one chuckle at a time.

  2. The secret source of antioxidants

    Get what your coffee is missing

    Coffee drinkers live longer, healthier lives. You don't need me to tell you that coffee is loaded with powerful antioxidants that are proven to promote a healthy heart and brain, support overall good health and more.

    But what if I told you that your daily cup contained only a tiny fraction of the real benefits of coffee?

    It's true!

    As great as a cuppa joe is, most of the nutrients in coffee are hidden in the part that's thrown away -- the fruit of the coffee, called a cherry (the coffee "bean" is actually the seed). The cherry is so loaded with nutrients that just a handful contains more antioxidants than FOUR POTS of coffee.

    But because coffee cherries rot easily and are difficult to store and ship, they get tossed in the bin -- and that's how one of the most concentrated sources of antioxidants on the planet ends up in a Third World landfill.

    It hardly seems fair, does it?

    Well, I'm here to give you back the FULL benefits of coffee -- the nutrients locked inside the cherry that could help keep you LOOKING and FEELING years younger, while fighting off some of today's biggest health threats at the same time.

    It's an extract of the coffee cherry, called CoffeeBerry, and on its own it has the power to work wonders. But I've made it even better by combining it with another leading source of concentrated antioxidants: Pomegranate.

    Like coffee, pomegranate on its own is loaded with healthy antioxidants. But, like coffee, pomegranate on its own is not the most efficient way to get those nutrients.

    You'd have to eat them by the bushel -- or down sugar-soaked pomegranate juice by the gallon -- to really get the benefits.

    Once again, it's an extract to the rescue -- a potent concentrate that delivers all the nutrients, minus the calories and sugar.

    I've put these two powerful extracts at the heart of my age-fighting, energy-boosting formula, PomXel. It's so potent that just one capsule delivers close to 90 times the antioxidant load of a cup of coffee.

    That's 90 times the power to fight damaging free radicals, boost your energy and help you maintain a healthy heart and sharp mind -- in a single capsule!

    It's so powerful that I believe you'll FEEL the difference in as little as a few days. But you don't have to take my word for it. Try it for yourself, and if you don't notice the extra spring in your step -- if you don't get the age-fighting results you're looking for -- send it back for a full refund.

    I call it my Ultimate Guarantee, and you won't find a better deal than that. Learn more -- or place your order -- here.
