Soften That Carcass Before You Bite It.
Before meat tenderizers there were cleavers, knives and other sharp objects, designed to breakdown the muscle tissue of the animal you choose to bury in your stomach. Nowadays, we have chemical meat tenderizers which, help to partially breakdown the muscle tissue, so that when we bite into it we don't leave our teeth behind. Many of the meat tenderizers on the market today are filled with unwanted chemicals we don't need or want. If you eat meat and you choose not to add insult to embarrassment, INDO can do. INDO is a natural meat tenderizer by Modern Products Inc., Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 53209. This Health Alternative Product comes from the kitchens of the internationally acclaimed gourmet nutritionist, Gaylord Hauser.

Quiet days quiet nights, "ah."
Infantile colic affects more than three-quarters of a million babies, and over 2,000,000 parents a year. There are very few answers in the medical realm of treatment, aside from hoping and wishing that this mysterious malady will pass sooner rather than later. Although colic is one of the most common reasons why parents seek the advice of a physician, not to mention countless millions of dollars expended, it remains an enigma. Many physicians believe that intestinal spasm and formation of excessive gas is most likely the cause. Symptoms of baby colic can include persistent crying, erratic sleep pattern, irritability, abdominal rigidity, and a marked deficiency of smiles and "coo's." Pediacalm to the rescue! This all natural herbal supplement is made from the herb Fennel. A clinical study demonstrated that PEDIACALM is almost three times more effective than a placebo and has no documented adverse side effects. The pleasant flavor of PEDIACALM makes it readily accepted by the babies. PEDIACALM is easy to use simply by placing a nipple-top on the bottle, and giving it to the baby.

You can find out where to find PEDIACALM by calling 1-847-835-5795 or e-mail: shucalms@earthlink.net
