Purality – Vitamin C

If you’ve tried collagen for aging skin and haven’t gotten the results you want… It’s because most collagen is missing a critical ingredient. And without this “missing link,” collagen WILL NOT WORK. With this “missing link” you can turn loose, saggy skin –– into tight, glowing, younger-looking skin!

So what is that missing link I am talking about? VITAMIN C.

Of course, you may know Vitamin C as a powerful immune-boosting nutrient…

But did you know Vitamin C is a critical nutrient for anti-aging? You see, Vitamin C it’s the “glue” that holds collagen together in your body. And if you’re low in Vitamin C, well all of that collagen you’re taking is pointless.

And here’s the thing, not all Vitamin C supplements are created equal…

If you’re taking Vitamin C in capsule or tablet form, you are missing out on key nutrients as they will simply pass through your body without being absorbed (you can thank your stomach acid for that).

However, our friends over at Purality Health have a patented formula that utilizes something called ‘MICELLE LIPOSOMAL’ technology which delivers the nutrients into your bloodstream – proven to be 800% more efficient!

So, if your skin is looking older than you… And the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, sagging skin, and otherwise “old-looking” skin frustrates you…

Give Purality Health’s Micelle Liposomal Vitamin C a try! It’s backed by a 180-day money-back guarantee. And today, we have a 30% OFF coupon for you! Just visit puralityhealth.com and use the coupon DRJ to access 30% OFF your purchase today!

Paleovalley – NeuroEffect

This podcast is sponsored by our friends at Paleovalley. And they have a great new product that I’ve been taking every morning that is called NeuroEffect. 

NeuroEffect is an organic blend of 8 different mushrooms that will fuel your brain for all-day concentration, clarity, and enhanced brain function. 

I’m a huge fan of medicinal mushrooms – I take them daily to support my immune system and my brain health. But did you know that virtually every mushroom product on the market isn’t actually the mushroom? It’s the mycelium that they grow on grain. This means they barely contain any of the medicinal compounds that mushrooms have to offer and instead contain up to 50% starch!

The grain can cause gut irritation and can interfere with the absorption of the little mushrooms they do have in it. 

Paleovalley’s NeuroEffect only uses whole mushrooms that are cultivated naturally and organically. They are then tested not once, but twice for quality, guaranteeing you get 2,100 mg of our neuro-supportive REAL mushrooms that have more than 26% beta-glucans ( the medicinal elements of a mushroom) in every serving, without the grains.

Paleovalley has added an organic whole coffee fruit that has been shown in clinical trials to stimulate the production of a protein vital for focus, memory, and clarity. Which means no caffeine jitters, or feeling like you need an afternoon cup of coffee. 

Check out Paleovalley’s Neuro Effect by going to Paleovalley.com/jockers to get 15% off at checkout.
