Save Money Buying Healthy Thrive Freeze Dried Foods Today!

You save money buying healthy Thrive freeze dried foods. Not only will you minimize the impact of food inflation through food storage, eliminating waste and lowering your monthly grocery expenses (see “Cheaper than the Grocery Store”) but you’ll be giving yourself healthy food for your body. Because it offers GMO free, MSG free, aspartame free, rBGH and rbst (animal hormone) free foods, you can use the foods you eat to help build up your immune system or lessen your allergies. When shopping always use our Allergens Chart which identifies potential allergens or reactives that might be relevant to you (i.e., gluten, wheat, soy, etc.)

Thrive is Premium, Healthy Freeze Dried Food.

After battling multiple health issues (see “About Me”) and seeking GMO free (genetically modified organisms) foods for groceries and food storage, I came across Thrive as a solution to my food and nutrition needs. It helps protect and build my immune system and reduce allergies. There’s a growing body of medical research that GMOs, MSG, “hidden MSG”, and aspartame may be adversely affecting our health (see “Healthier than the Grocery Store”). GMOs have been linked to altering DNA, increasing allergies and adversing affecting our immune system. Studies of rats eating a GMO diet showed a variety of adverse effects on them, including, but not limited to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, infertility, organ failure, etc. MSG and aspartame have also been negatively linked to the same or similar adverse health effects (see Allergens & Reactives”).

With Thrive Foods you have a healthy alternative that saves you money!

Thrive foods are the best quality at the lowest price. Shelf Reliance guarantees you get the lowest food prices working with an independent consultant. They have 4 pricing levels on their freeze dried food:

Retail (You go to the Thrive Life [formerly Shelf Reliance] website and purchase through the company directly. The black bar across the page identifying the consultant is not present.)

Web Store -Home Party Price (You purchase off a consultant’s web store or through one of their parties. You see a black bar across the page identifying the consultant’s name. (This store is identified as “” on the black bar.) Savings approximately 5 to 15%.

Q Club (This is their frequent buyer program, where you agree to purchase a minimum amount, i.e., $100, per month. Savings approximately 10 to 25%.)

Unadvertised Specials (These are periodic specials, heavily discounted, i.e., up to 45% off, that the independent consultant emails you the pending specials. These specials are not publicly posted in the web store. They are password protected. To receive them you must give the independent consultant your email address per corporate policy. Once I have your email address I will email you the password.)

If you are interested in deep discounts, would like to see the unadvertised specials, then view my page on How to Get DEEP Discounts: Become Our Customer.

As an attorney (see “About Me” tab) I have a special sensitivity to privacy and confidentiality issues. Your information is kept private and is not shared. I only send out emails with the monthly sale specials, unadvertised specials and new products added which is usually once a month. I also will share once a month food supply, health articles or videos you might want to read on GMOs, food additives and how they adversely impact our health. Many of you are like me trying to purify our food supplies and eat healthy. It can be done.

Knowledge is power!

Explore this website. It contains a condensed summary of facts (with links to reputable third party sources) about issues going on with our food supply that are causing a broad range of health issues. Even if you don’t purchase anything from my store, I encourage you to share this site with others. We need to learn more about what makes us healthier and how to avoid illness. When you look at the scientific data and research, excessive calorie consumption is not the real poster child. Learn why and you’ll get healthier!

I work with customers to help them get the best deal for their budget and personal situation.  As a food ministry my efforts are committed to getting you the most food for the least amount of money.

So how do I do this?   I integrate various Thrive sales and specials and tailor them to what you eat and what you need.  I want you to have as much gluten free and non-GMO foods as possible.

Too many times in talking with people I’ve heard them saying that they wanted to eat organic or non-GMO foods but they can’t afford it.  I want to eliminate that obstacle for your and your family.

Below is a diagram showing how the various pricing tools, methods and strategies make eating non-GMO affordable and practical.


Thrive Life offers multiple ways to get discounts with its price structure.

Each method is covered in the following pages:

Thrive PRICING LEVELS:  The four pricing levels for Thrive Foods are discussed.

We Really Are Cheaper Than the Grocery Store:  There are hidden costs to the traditional grocery store.  Using Thrive foods substantially reduces, if not eliminate, those cost factors.

Monthly Sale Specials:  Each month we have specials.  Check them out.

Current Thrive Unadvertised Specials:  These are deep discounted specials (up to 45% off).  Sign up for our email list and you will receive them in less than 30 minutes.

I get asked this question many times about Thrive Foods!  The answer is simple:  Overall it is the best choice for quality and value!  It’s a win-win for the consumer!

These are just a few of the many good reasons to switch to Thrive Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) food products:


Our foods are healthier than the foods offered at the traditional grocery stores as they are not dominated with GMOs, MSG, and Aspartame, ingredients or processes which either have not been fully tested with long term studies by independent scientists.  At best GMOs, MSG and Aspartame are controversial and highly debated within the scientific community.  Are you or your family interested in being part of an ongoing experiment as many claim these growing methods and additives are?  See our page Healthier Than The Grocery Store for more information.


Food prices are skyrocketing, whether from companies changing their ingredients to cheaper ones, substituting ingredients, reducing the quantity, or just increasing the price.  Thrive Foods, because of their long term storage (many 25 or more years) and time to eat our foods once opened (usually 1 to 2 years) allows you to lock in lower prices as an offset to inflation, including potential upcoming hyperinflation.

Moreover, Thrive Life also offers you price stability that the grocery stores, whether those stressing whole foods or the traditional grocery store are unlikely to have.  The company adjusts it price schedule 4 times a year (for each season).  I’ve even seen our regular prices on food items go down.  Ask youself how often that happens at the grocery store these days?  To learn more about how we are cheaper, visit the page  Cheaper Than The Grocery Store.


As you know millions of consumers want more information on their food labels to indicate whether a food product is genetically modified.  There was a knock-down fight of David and Goliath in California with the November 2012 referendum about whether we could get pro-consumer food labeling.  Unfortunately the last 40 days before the vote, Monsanto, Dow Chemical, Syngenta, Coca-Cola, Pepsi-Co and other minions heavily engaged in shoveling GMOs into your food supply (and believe with their corporate practices that you are NOT entitled to know whether GMOs are in your food) won Round 1 because they poured millions into their campaign.  (Ask yourself:  If GMOs are so good then why don’t they want you to know that one or more ingredients in a product is genetically modified?)

Consumers during these challenging times did not have the financial means to offset these multinational corporations.

So battle may have been lost but the war is far from over.  The “genie” is out of the bottle.  That “bloodbath” caused more consumers to learn about the GMO issues not just inside but outside of California.

Before this referendum Thrive Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) was already providing potential customers information on whether their food products contained GMOs.  In fact they voluntarily give customers more information than the law requires.  Learn why this is important by reading my page:  “Natural” or “All Natural” Misleading Labels.


When I was growing up it was rare to hear that anyone had a food allergy, and even rarer to hear that a child had a food allergy.  Now, there is a dramatic increase in the number of food allergies not just for adults but of children.  Learn more about this from my page Allergens and Reactives.


Thrive Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) is providing you with an ever expanding number of whole foods, sauces and seasonings.  It really is a high quality online grocery store.  Look at our offerings:  Freeze Dried Grocery Store.  Why battle the long lines, be exposed to the end counter high leader product placements, the time spent, and the gas you burn going between grocery stores.  Thrive Foods are a online shopping service that is a one stop shopping experience that will save you not only time, but money.

Learn to Read Food Labels

Major food companies import food from China.  Did you know many of the mandarin oranges are grown in China?  Research and you will find many issues with Chinese agricultural practices and government practices that condone or attempt to hide the issues. Dole Mandarin Oranges come from China.  Does that motivate you to go purchase this product?


This past weekend I gave a talk (with Q & A’s from the audience–love those! :)) about how to read food labels.  (BTW if your group would like me to speak about this issue, food politics, etc. just send me an email to and we’ll discuss it.)

Unfortunately still too many people do not understand the issues about genetically modified (GMO) or genetically engineered (GE) foods, MSG, “hidden MSG”, aspartame or rbgh and rbst.

Just as important as those issues is the origin of the country where the foods are grown.  Let’s face it, some countries have better agricultural practices than others.  I know that I want to avoid as much as possible all imported foods from China or Southeast Asia.  Beyond their questionable agricultural practices, government corruption and history of contaminated food, I try my best to avoid buying products from China.  Our nation owes them too much money and some day we are going to get a much nastier boomerang than we are currently experiencing from this foreign trade imbalance.

I came across this article that has a basic explanation of the “organic” labeling program with some links for research.  I hope it conveys one reason why reading your food labels are important for your health and your purse!  –No Name Attorney

Organic Labels Come in Different Shapes and Sizes

Organic labels and their cousins abound. Here’s a look at some of the most  important labels consumers will see in grocery stores.

By Brian Clark Howard

Labeling may not seem like a particularly exciting topic, but it is extremely  important to those with nut allergies, diabetics and those busy people  everywhere who rely on labels to know what’s inside the foods they eat. Consider  the heated controversy over whether genetically engineered foods should be  explicitly labeled, or the ongoing fight over country-of-origin seals and how  that relates to recent scares over food imported from China.  When it comes to the much-touted word “organic,” there is much at stake. Not  only is the sector the fastest growing in the food industry, but also advocates  are positioning organics as a great hope in the battle to protect the  environment from the ravages of industrial agriculture and even oil-fueled  climate change. There are perhaps as many detailed definitions of “organic” as  there are farmers, chefs and consumers. But here are some of the most important  labels:

Political Cartoon Captures What We're Facing in 2013

Political Cartoon Captures What We’re Facing in 2013

With food inflation setting to soar in 2016, saving money on your grocery bill is important.  I’ve seen figures reported groceries used to make up 6% of our monthly budget.  As of 2013 Max Keiser, an economic journalist, reported in the U.S. groceries rose on average to 16% of a family’s monthly income.

Two ways that you can significantly lower your grocery bill while simultaneously eating better food than is offered at the traditional grocery store (i.e., non-gmo, no msg, no hidden msg, no aspartame), is using Thrive’s Unadvertised Specials and the Q Club.

Since unadvertised specials, which can save up to 45% off of the retail price, are NOT published on the Thrive Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) website, then to receive these you must have a relationship with a Thrive Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) Consultant.  The consultant sends these to you via email, newsletter and/or has them on their website password protected.  These are the distribution requirements by Thrive Life corporate office.

How Survive-Thrive.Us Distributes Unadvertised Specials to Potential Customers:

1.    We require all customers or potential customers to sign up for our Email Newsletter.  Each month around the 2nd to the 5th day, we send out our newsletter.

2.    Within the newsletter there will be a link to the current unadvertised specials.  All unadvertised specials are subject to being discontinued at any time.

3.    Since unadvertised specials fluctuate how often that they are updated and to keep down the number of emails sent, we also post on the website, password protected, a copy of the current unadvertised specials.  So before purchasing you should check on the website to see if it has been updated.

4.    The website copy is password protected.  All customers are given the password.  It is subject to being periodically changed for security reasons.  If a customer loses or forgets the password, then please email me at and I will resend the current password.

5.      Your information is not shared or sold by me.  Thrive Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) likewise does not share or sell your information.

Who Can Join Our Email Newsletter:

1.    Anyone who is not already signed up for the Q Club under a consultant.  (Exception:  Those who are a Q Club customer of a Survive-Thrive.Us ministry team member are allowed to sign up to the newsletter.  Write me first at giving me your name so I can verify whether your consultant is on the Survive-Thrive.Us ministry team.)

2.    If you have purchased from another consultant, but are not enrolled as a Q Club customer, and you feel that the Survive-Thrive.Us ministry better meets your needs, then you will receive the newsletter if you decide to become our customer.  This means that you:

a.    Notify the consultant that you want to be taken off of their email list, newsletter, etc.

b.    Agree that the Survive-Thrive.Us newsletter and other communications are proprietary and will not share them with a non-ministry consultant.  We go to great lengths to minimize any potential conflict of interest and mitigate any risks of inadvertent copyright violations for the benefit of everyone.

c.    Should you decide at some point that you wish to discontinue being a Survive-Thrive.Us ministry customer, then you notify us in writing to take you off all communication lists.  We will quickly comply with your wishes.

 When You Become Our Customer, Then You Give Us Permission:

1.    Send you our newsletter, special sales or important food news.

You will be added to our email database hosted currently by Constant Contact.

We are conservative in sending out emails and other communications.  We realize it is a privilege and respect the trust you have given.

2.    Add your name to our Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) customer database.  This will create your login ID and issue a temporary password so you can shop at your convenience.

3.    Enroll you automatically (as long as you are an active customer) in periodical contests and giveaways.

4.    Verify with Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) that you qualify to be a customer and eligible to receive our Email Newsletter, contests and giveaway prizes.

5.    Verify with Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) your consultant history so that if you have been associated with a Survive-Thrive ministry team consultant your account stays with them. 

Survive-Thrive.Us and its ministry team members have a team approach and work closely together on many projects.  We have an agreement we do not take customers from each other.  Therefore, when we are entering your customer information into the Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) database, if you are already in the database, then we will need to take steps not to break our agreement. 

Please note if you are associated with a ministry team consultant you are eligible to join this website’s newsletter.

 Who Is Not Eligible to Become a Customer or Join Our Email Newsletter:

1.    A Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) Consultant who is not a member of the Survive-Thrive.Us ministry team.

2.    A family member of a Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) Consultant who is not a member of the Survive-Thrive.Us ministry team.

3.    An individual who resides in the household of a Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) Consultant who is not a member of the Survive-Thrive.Us ministry team.

4.    An individual who has a Q Club account with a Thrive Life (Shelf Reliance) Consultant who is not a member of the Survive-Thrive.Us ministry team.

If you have any questions about any of the above policies, then please send me an email at  If you are uncertain as to whether you are associated with another consultant, or whether you have a Q Club account, then write me.  I will research the matter and share with you the results.

Attending Charlotte PrepCon November 17th?

Charlotte Prep Conference on Saturday, September 8, 2012

The Charlotte Prep Con series of conferences are an excellent tool to stimulate your analytical and critical thinking skills on what to do in a variety of emergency situations. See their website,, for topics discussed.

The Survive-Thrive.US food ministry team will again be a vendor at the next Charlotte PrepCon.  This third conference will be on Saturday, November 17, 2012.  The location for PrepCon III is Grace Covenant Church, 17301 Statesville Road, Cornelius, NC, 28031.. Cost is $22.00 per person (adult) and $12.00 per child.  For more information, go to

They have some good and informative speakers in this series of conferences.  The first two PrepCons featured a video teleconference with James Wesley Rawles, of Survival Blog.  Please see their website for speakers for PrepCon III as the list is evolving. 

At the PrepCon I and PrepCon II conferences there were many Christians attending and corporate prayers for wisdom and our nation.

If you are planning on ordering freeze dried food and attending the Charlotte PrepCon III conference, here are my recommendations:

r   Use this website to learn about how GMOs, MSG, Hidden MSG and aspartame affects your health and the quality of your food.

r   Review the list of food products we have on the Freeze Dried Grocery Store page.

r   Read the page regarding how you can save money on groceries using freeze dried food.

r   Make a list of foods that you and your family eat regularly.

r   Determine how much food storage you want, i.e., 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 2 years, etc.

r   How many calories approximately does each person in your family eat a day?

r   Review the monthly specials and unadvertised specials.

r   Contact me for a phone consult or scheduling a time for Melissa, Suzane or I  to meet with you, your friends or family before the conference.  This allows you to ask as many questions you want, gather information and analyze what is best for you.  It also gives you time to compare the quality or offerings to other freeze dried food manufacturers.

If we don’t meet or discuss your needs before the conference, then bring with you a list of our items, along with estimated quantities, estimated calorie needs, etc. to the conference.

We can review the list and make suggestions on how best to get what you want at the lowest possible pricing at the conference.  We can also, if you like, schedule a meeting or phone conference for fine tuning your order needs.

If you have never tasted Thrive Freeze Dried Foods, then you’re in for a treat at the conference.  We will have a variety of foods for you to sample.   Also, if we meet before the conference, then we’ll bring some samples for you to try during our meeting.

Tasting some samples is a critical part of the process when  ordering.  I’ve met customers who bought my competitor’s foods without tasting.  After they tasted the competitor’s foods, then tasted Thrive, they became my customer.

Besides having free samples to taste at the conference, we will also have pantry can sizes of many of our foods for purchase for you to try.  Note at the conference, trade show events or whether team members have a physical storefront all Shelf Reliance consultants are required to charge retail prices per our contract for products that are “cash and carry”.  Only when you or a ministry team member place a order online are you eligible for special sales, monthly specials and unadvertised specials. 

I am attaching an order form.  We will be taking completed order forms at the conference.  If you prefer, you do not have to put your credit card information on the form.  After the conference when your order is entered we can contact you and obtain your financial transaction information at that time.

Any questions please feel free to email me at

Looking forward to seeing you at the Charlotte Prepcon November 17th!

Why Join The Thrive Life “Q Club”

Q Club Banner Narrow


Among freeze dried food companies Thrive Life (formerly Shelf Reliance) has a unique online shopping service called the Q Club.


The Q Club shopping service can replace traditional grocery store shopping so you can prepare healthy meals quicker through reallocation of grocery monies.  Likewise, it serves as a method for creating a monthly budget towards purchasing foods for emergency storage.  Many customers use the online shopping service for convenience and cost savings as well.

The Q Club offers the lowest prices on individual cans.   (Unadvertised Specials offer the lowest prices on small packages to 1 year packages.)   All items are on sale, up to 30% off.  Each month at least one item is a featured Q-Pon, offering savings of 30%.  You will get an additional 5% off if you buy a case of the #10 cans (6 cans) or 3% off if you purchase a case (10 cans) of the pantry size.

Why the Q Club Trumps the Traditional Grocery Store

Our shopping habits are changing: moving away from the storefront to purchasing in the privacy of our home online.  We now purchase clothes, books, electronics and other consumer needs online, so why not purchase our groceries online?

Probably the biggest concerns about purchasing food online are the weight of groceries (i.e. shipping costs), breakage of items, and spoilage.  But what if your food was lightweight, ideal for shipping, protected in BPA-free cans and would not spoil before you used it?

Thrive Life’s Q Club totally revolutionizes grocery shopping!Q Club Compared to Traditional Grocery Store


 How the Q Club Works

Steps for setting up Q Club

No Cost To Join The Q Club If You Sign Up Under A Consultant

Your membership fees are waived if you:

Make an initial commitment of 3 months to try the service;

Purchase a minimum of $100 per month (or more) of product; and

Keep the same monthly budget for the first 3 months.

At the end of the 3 month period, should you want to continue on with the Q Club, just purchase 11 out of 12 months of the year and your renewal fees are waived as well.

If you are interested in signing up for the Q Club, contact me at or your Survive-Thrive.US ministry team member.  We’ll be happy to set up your account and assist you.

THRIVE™: Healthy Foods that Helps You

Purify and Win In the Health War

Spaghetti dinner made with gmo free thrive products. Gourmet without the gourmet costs.

You can have healthy, GMO-free meals in less than half the normal prep time without the gourmet costs

Thrive Foods (by Thrive Life, formerly Shelf Reliance), a leader in the freeze dried food industry, sells healthy foods without GMOs, MSG or aspartame.  Thrive Life’s focus is on selling you premium healthy foods  that you can eat every day, replacing the grocery store.  They also make available over 40 packages, from small packages to 4 individuals, 1 year package for those who are stocking food as a hedge against food inflation or preparing for times of local or national emergency.

Healthy Foods

No other freeze dried food company can claim all of the following: 

  • Healthy, Non GMO (or GMO free) foods (see Thrive Product Details) and seeking USDA organic certification on several items.  We released our first 6 certified organic items in February 2013 in our ongoing quest;
  • Shelf Life up to 30 years with an average life of 25 years;
  • Opened cans, average life of 1 year;
  • Higher natural vitamin (phytonutrient) content;
  • Animal Growth Hormone (rBGH, rbst) free meat and dairy products;
  • We do not source vendors that use Pink Slime Meat or by-products;
  • Avoid MSG or hidden MSG in prepared processed food and freeze dried meals;
  • No salt  or low salt (meats) in freeze dried foods as preservative;
  • Lower salt in Thrive Express™ prepared dishes than our competitors
  • Award winning 5 star chef (Todd Leonard) that teaches customers how to use Thrive daily;
  • Extensive collection of recipes using Thrive products;
  • Real meat in their Thrive Express™ dishes, not the “fake” TVP substitute;
  • Eliminate food waste by only getting the serving size you need for that meal;
  • Helps you better count your calories by controlling the ingredients and the serving size;
  • Cut meal prep time in half or more;
  • Latest food preservation technologyno nitrogen put directly on food (nitrogen flushing); and
  • Lower per serving cost.

Compare Us to the Competition

Most freeze dried food companies sell you packages focused primarily on you using them during financial hardships or emergencies.  Many of these processed foods have numerous GMO ingredients and contain multiple neurotoxins or excitotoxins, i.e., textured vegetable protein, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, etc.  These companies remind me of the food processing industry because of their lack of sensitivity to the GMO, neurotoxins and excitotoxin issues, the only difference is that their processed food has a longer shelf life.

Some of these companies do not even have the nutritional information on their website!  You don’t get to see that their food has high sodium (salt) in excess of 40+% of the recommended daily allowance per serving, undesirable levels of cholesterol or low or no natural vitamins in their servings.  You have to call to find out that they do use GMO ingredients.  When you finally locate their nutritional information on one of their affiliate or reseller sites, then the ingredients shows that there are multiple ingredients containing hidden MSG (less than 99% pure grade MSG or glutamate-see “Healthier than a Grocery Store”).

I’ve heard some people say that should we have a SHTF situation that they won’t worry about whether they have unhealthly food but only concerned that there is food.

Have Healthy Foods Now or in the Future

Is this wise when you can plan ahead and have healthy foods?  In times of crises when stress levels are high or if we have a nuclear emergency (i.e., nuclear reactor situation like Fukushima) our immune system must function at a high level instead of a weakened one.  How is your immune system going to do that when your intake is low vitamin, high sodium, GMO, and excitotoxin food? 

For those who are considering buying a package for preparedness purposes, don’t you want to buy healthy foods that you would eat every day rather than be left with food at some point you need to eat but would not normally eat as part of your diet?

Whether you are buying to replace grocery store food, trying to hedge inflation or for preparedness purposes, Thrive™ is a real win-win for consumers!

Healthier Than the Grocery Store

We have over 17 fruits and 22 vegetable products. Hormone free meat and dairy too!

Healthier Than the Grocery Store:

No Hidden MSG, GMOs or Aspartame

Thrive Foods are high quality, foods that are healthier than the grocery store: natural grains, vegetables, non-hormone meat and poultry, dairy, yogurt, beans, and more.   When you buy the actual ingredient (rather than prepared or processed foods) you have more control over the quality of your food.

Our method of freeze drying food kills the salmonella, e.coli and other viruses and bacteria while preserving 98% of the natural phytonutrients.  No chemical vitamins or preservatives are added!  Plus you get a bonus of foods coming chopped, diced and prepared (thus cutting cooking and prep time 50% or more).  You only add water, wait 5 minutes and then drain off the water.

From an analysis of studies and objective medical literature and research, the quality of our food supply is being attacked in three separate ways:

  • The use of GMO (genetically modified organisms) foods and food  additives;
  • The injection and use of bovine growth hormone on animals and overuse of antibiotics with meat and/or poultry;  and
  • The use of neurotoxins and excitotoxins as additives for flavor enhancing and calorie reduction.

Did you know that now over 80% of the food in our grocery store contains one or more GMO (genetically modified organism) ingredients?  They’ve done this by modifying food crops that are commonly used as ingredients in processed foods:  Corn88%; Soy94%;  Canola90%; Cottonseed (oil)-90%; Sugar beets (refined sugar)-95%; Hawaiian Papaya50% +; Zucchiniover 24,000 acres; and Crookneck Squashover 24,000 acres.

This method of corporate farming, using Roundup, modifying seeds to be resistant to Roundup in which they alter the DNA through crossing species, in independents studies have been linked to a wide array of chronic, life threatening conditions: diabetes, cancer, heart disease, organ failure, etc.  In mice fed strictly a GMO diet after three generations were sterile.  Want to learn more about GMOs?  An excellent website is Institute for Responsible Technology.

Another reason many items in your grocery store are not healthy is the food additives put in processed food. You may not realize it but neurotoxins or excitotoxins get added to processed food.  In layman’s language an excitotoxin is any substance that causes brain cells to become very excited, start firing their impulses so rapidly that they become exhausted and prematurely die. 

Two common excitotoxins in our food supply are monosodium glutamate (MSG) and aspartame.  Most MSG in our foods is not listed as MSG on the ingredients because the FDA only requires MSG to be specifically identified if it is 99% pure grade.  Aspartame, an artificial sweetener, is also an excitotoxin.  It is responsible for about 75% of the complaints regarding food to the FDA.

Besides prematurely killing certain brain cells, which attacks the hypothalamus in our brain, these food additives are highly addictive, causing you to eat more food. This means food manufacturers sell more food.

 You and your family’s health would benefit tremendously by watching an interview with Dr. Russell Blaylock.  Dr. Blaylock is a board certified neurosurgeon, author and a is a leading researcher on neurotoxins and excitotoxins.  During this interview Dr. Blaylock  explains the science as well as sharing the numerous adverse effects to our nervous and endocrine system (i.e., causes obesity, increased diabetes, heart disease, cancer, reduced fertility, increased Alzheimer’s disease, etc.).  This interview was in March 2012 and has the latest research.

With all of these biotech and food additive attacks on our food supply, do you now see why I say Thrive Foods are healthier than the grocery store?

We vote on our health with our dollars.  We can improve our health by engaging more, examining food supplies, eating healthy foods, limiting exposure to environmental toxins and maximizing our vitamin and nutrient intake.
