15% Off Green Tea Extract - Can 4,000 Years of Research Be Wrong?
Green tea - you hear about it almost everywhere these days; itís in shampoos, moisturizers and itís in every other beverage you see sitting on the shelves at the grocery store. One could think that this seeming surge in popularity is just another health-craze, but take a look at what the experts are saying about green tea and see if itís something that you should consider as part of your healthy lifestyle.
Tea has been brewed as a beverage for almost 5,000 years -- and green tea, in particular, has been used as an enjoyable drink and for medicinal purposes in China as far back as 4,000 years ago. A Zen priest from the tenth century wrote a book all about the healthful benefits of green tea and believed it was helpful for maintaining many vital organs, including the heart. It sounds like theyíve known for a long time what we are just now discovering.
While the west has always had a love affair with coffee and black tea, Americans are now making room for the possibilities of green tea, in a big way. Recent studies support many of the antioxidant claims. A 2007 study by the United States Department of Agriculture shows that just one cup of green tea contains flavonoids in a higher content than many other foods and beverages considered to be healthy in nature. In addition, a recent study published at the University of Maryland indicates that green tea does have many antioxidant properties which may help support cardiovascular health, maintain healthy cholesterol levels and keep breast, lung, and other cells safe from the damage caused by oxidation and other stresses.
While numerous research facilities continue to study the possible health benefits of green tea, initial findings make it a healthy inclusion into your daily diet. One of our featured products this month is Green Tea Extract, which delivers all of the immune system and antioxidant activities to your body in an easy-to-take capsule. In fact, just one capsule of Our Health Co-op, Green Tea Extract provides the equivalent health benefits of 5 cups of green tea.
There are countless green tea products on the market right now, but consider your choices carefully, fair members. Many of the green tea beverages contain sugar and other additives that could sabotage a healthy diet plan. Since, it's pleasantly decaffeinated for your comfort, however, our Green Tea Extract is a concentrated and affordable way to add a positive supplement into your diet so you can experience the benefits of green tea as well as lower caffeine intake. For those sensitive to caffeine, check out our product page to see how it compares to other common beverages.
So can 4,000 years of research be wrong? That's for you to decide, of course. But if you're sitting on the fence about this supplement and would like to try it... or are already an ardent fan, the Co-op team is giving you a great reason to test it out or stock up. Through Tuesday, August 16th, Green Tea Extract is on special at 15% Off its already low Co-op price.

(As a little aside, this kat discovered that Teri loves the strong taste of the Green Tea Extract powder. In fact, she's been known to open a capsule and add a little to her morning smoothies... yikes! To each their own, but me-thinks she may have gone too far for this feline's taste.)
Teri Takes Us on Vacation. Off on a little adventure for a few days with her family, Teri returns to one of her favorite childhood spots -- Chesapeake Bay, Maryland. As she reminisces about her years growing up there and shares the joys and dangers of vacactioning on the beach, you might feel that you're enjoying the journey with Teri and her clan. So thanks, Teri for taking us along! Glad you had fun... and traveled home safely... Harley and the Co-op team missed you. ^..^

Super Savings: 15% Off Neuro-PS and B-100 Plus -- $5 Off New Krill Oil
The first special is a 15% Off Limited Time Offer on Neuro-PS (a.k.a. phosphatydalserine). As we age, membrane functions slow down, and the membranes themselves are highly susceptible to damage. Brain cell membranes are especially at risk, with wear and tear resulting in poor neuron communication, and decline of memory and cognitive function.
But never fear, fair members, phosphatidylserine, as a supplement, has been studied for about 50 years and has an outstanding track record in both human and animal studies for supporting healthy cognitive function.
Note: No coupon needed for this special. Simply add Neuro-PS to your cart before midnight, August 14th to claim your discount.
Also on special for 15% off through Sunday, August 14th there's B-100 Plus. That's right... through Sunday, you can buy this member favorite for the low price of only $7.61. That's a savings of $1.34 per bottle!

Kat's Notes: A Dog, A Cat, and a Rat -- A Most Unlikely Trio
When life sets your course in a very different direction, some people figure out how to adapt and create something totally unique from their experience.
Such is the case with Greg Pike and his three pals (a dog, a cat, and a rat) who have set out to show the world that if these unlikely friends can get along, humans ought to be able to do the same (this kat couldn't agree more). So enjoy a little trip to Santa Barbara, California where Greg and his crew do their sidewalk show (remember to scroll down the page to access the pictures)...and feel free to send this kat some of your own favorite videos or pictures. You never know who you might inspire.
(Special thanks to Teri T. from West Palm Beach for this one -- a 15% Off Coupon is headed your way).
If your friends and family care about supplement quality and love a good deal, they will certainly thank you!
