Let's look at the air we breathe One billion people,
mostly women and children, are regularly exposed to levels of indoor
air pollution exceeding
World Health Organization guidelines by up to 100 times.
Next time you are dropping your children or grandchildren off at
school, see how many kids have inhalers to help them with
asthma-related breathing problems. Then think back to when you
attended school and the magnitude of the problem will hit you.
The level of pollution has overwhelmed children's natural ability to
fight back and deactivate the toxic overload.
It is predicted that
by the year 2020, 8 million people will die annually from the air
pollution we cause .
How about the water we drink?
Millions of people around the world have no choice but to consume
water that exceeds the lead contamination level deemed acceptable by
the World Health Organization.
Studies show that
80% of U.S. streams and rivers are contaminated with a broad
array of medical drugs, including hormones, antibiotics,
antidepressants and heart mediations, as well as chemicals from
personal care and household cleaning products.
Now, let's look at the food we eat
used to say, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." ... but now,
those lovely looking apples we eat are full of pesticides.
Even the worms do not want to eat them! Furthermore, most of
these apples are grown thousands of miles away, picked while they
are still green and exposed to ethylene gas so they can
ripen as they are being shipped to their destination in a truck.
Not only do these fruits still carry a residue of the chemical but
because they are picked early, they may have little or no
nutritional value by the time they reach your kitchen table.
Our modern food supply has become a mixture of chemicals and
additives with the emphasis on appearance and taste as well as shelf
life, rather than on the nutritional value. That's why by
middle age many people have
as much as 20 pounds of undigested, putrefactive food in their
colon. No wonder why colon cancer is the number one
cancer in the United States.
Back in 1976, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) began a
program of collecting and analyzing human fat tissue samples -
looking for toxic compounds. They searched for and studied 54
different environmental toxins. What they found was alarming.
100% of the people they
studied had toxic chemicals stored in their bodies and at
least 76% of all people had more than 20 different chemicals stored.

Well, it was 1976,
things may have been improved ... or is it? On January 2004, a
study released by the Atlanta Centers for Disease Control (CDC)
shows alarming levels of pesticide contamination in North
America. CDC researchers tested the blood and urine of more than
9,000 people for level of 23 pesticides, and found that 100 per
cent of the subjects carried detectable levels of contamination.
The study shows the
average American has 13 pesticides in his body, many at levels
well above health thresholds set by U.S. EPA.
Think about it! Every single person had some toxins in
their bodies - undeniable proof that body pollution is a very real
concept and a threat to your health.
Our world is vastly different from that of our
ancestors. While we are more aware of environmental
pollution today than ever before, we can't avoid it. We
eat, breathe and live in our modern environment, making the
ingestion of toxins a part of everyday life! Click

together in balance and harmony.

The special blend of 23 herbal extracts found in intra work well
in the formula due in part to the concept known as synergistic
effect. The synergistic
effect is defined as multiple herbs in a blended formulation
working together to produce a greater benefit than any one of
the individual components on their own. A great example
of this is licorice root - this unique botanical magnifies the
positive effects of other botanicals in a formulation.

Grand Master of Tai Chi in Clearwater, Florida. I have won
over 8 world championships in Karate and have been trained and
coached by the best in the world. Today I am currently 60
years old and have recently released a book called the Six Steps to
the Fountain of Youth! I am also a professional dance
instructor and have been taking vitamins and supplements and herbal
blends for years. Lifestyles products are the first products that I
have ever endorsed. Not only do I use Intra, and Nutria, but I
am totally amazed at how Lifestyles has been able not only to have a
product line that is on the cutting edge of nutrition, but to keep
the price so reasonable that anyone can afford. I am so impressed
with the integrity of the products and the folks behind the scenes,
that I will be incorporating the Lifestyles products into all my Tai
Chi schools in Florida and eventually around North America.

I have been
introduced to many different types of nutritional supplements over
the years. My personal belief was that most of them were
limited in terms of their ingredients and failed to live up to their
hype. So when my trusted friend asked me to try a bottle of
intra to give me more vitality, I was less than enthusiastic.
In the end, however, I was pleasantly surprised to find intra is
everything its made out to be and more. Needless to say, I am no
longer a skeptic and I feel sixteen again!

Pesticide-Free, indeed many of the intra botanical plants are wild crafted, meaning they
grow naturally in the wild
with no human intervention.
Picking the Plants
It is vital that the plants are picked at the right time - they
must have reached their peak growing phase to ensure that they have
a high level of active ingredients.
Lifestyles has ensured that
each of the botanicals used
in intra are hand picked, washed with only pure water, and then
naturally sun dried before being sorted into various quality
grades in central processing area.
Once sorted, only the highest quality plants are exported to the
The Extraction and Standardization Process
Once the raw plants arrive at our extraction facility, several
quality control tests are preformed to ensure the plants meet our
high quality standards.
The extraction process is vital to ensure that consistently high
levels of active compounds are present in the final blend.
Each plant is cut into smaller pieces and prepared for insertion
into the extraction kettles.
The extraction process uses water, pressure and time to extract
the active compounds present in each plant. Botanical extracts
are many times stronger than the raw plant.
During the extraction process, each botanical is tested for
active compounds. The standardization process is performed
through a method known as high-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC)
- the gold standard of measuring nutrient activity. This will
ensure each botanical has a consistently high level of active
Blending of Intra® Proprietary Formula
Once each of the plants have been extracted and standardized,
they are blended together in the specific proportions that make up
the unique botanical blend of intra.
They key to the botanical blend is the balance between each of
the extracts - they are specially formulated to enhance each other
in the final product.
The intra formula is proprietary to Lifestyles and is known only
to very few people in the world.
Intra® Quality Assurance
Each batch of intra is subjected to a rigorous
set of quality
control tests to ensure the quality of the finished product meets or
exceeds the standards of Food GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice)
The intra factory is 'Hazardous Analysis and Critical Control
Point' (HACCP) certified. HACCP is a state-of-the art approach
to food safety recognized and supported by regulatory agencies
around the world, including the U.S. FDA and the Canadian Food
Each batch of Intra produced is analyzed for the following before
it is released for distribution:
Botanical Potency - each botanical extract in both
intra liquid and capsules is standardized for potency and purity
of the active compounds. This ensures the customers is
getting exactly what the label claims.
Disintegration - this is a measurement as to how fast
the intra capsule dissolves. It is important to ensure
that the product breaks down quickly in the stomach so the
nutrients can be fully absorbed. Intra capsules have been
shown to break down fully in the stomach in less than ten
Yeast and Mold Testing - each of the raw materials is
fully tested for any bacteria, yeast or molds prior to being
used for production. Then each batch of finished product
is tested once again to ensure the product is free of bacteria,
yeast and mold.
pH and Viscosity - each batch of intra is analyzed to
ensure it is within normal limits for both pH (acidity) and
Body Pollution (the pollution from the environment that
enters our bodies) is exposing our immune systems to levels
of chemicals, toxins, pollutants and other agents our bodies
were never designed to absorb. The scary truth is that we
are all ingesting these negative substances everyday in the
food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breathe.
Together, they weaken our immune systems and contribute to
many of today's most common diseases.
Around the world we have seen an
increase in cancer,
asthma, allergies, HIV and, most recently, the outbreak of
SARS and avian viruses. Even relatively minor
ailments such as colds and the flu seem not only to be on the
rise but also more intense. In many cases, our immune
system is the only effective weapon against these problems.
But sadly, it seems we just can't fight things off like we
So what can we do to support and maintain a healthy immune
system, and be better prepared to fight off environmental
invaders? Daily supplementation with botanical extracts,
antioxidants, vitamins and minerals and phytonutrients is a good start. By
giving our bodies the daily nutrition it needs, we are
providing the basic building blocks for a healthy and
effective immune system.
When Intra was introduced to me - my life changed

Stress is part of a vicious circle that includes anxiety and
depression. Each one contributes to the other, with negative
effects being seen in the gastrointestinal tract, skin, and
several internal organs. When we are stressed our bodies

stress-related hormones. Over stimulation of these hormones
can lead to a state of severe exhaustion commonly known as
Stress is related to - and greatly affected by - nutrition
and diet. Adequate levels of vitamins, minerals and
antioxidants can help the body deal with the negative
aspects of stress. Healthy foods and optimal protein and
fiber intake can help balance blood sugar levels and may
help offset the effects of stress and depression.
My profession as a systems engineer is very demanding. When

life was great, except for the amount of study I was doing
for my exams. The work load was almost impossible to keep up
with and consequently I felt under tremendous pressure and

energy and am tremendously positive about the future. - Andrew Holdsworth, Aldershot, UK
