Sharpening Your Mind and Memory

    Do you ever try to remember someone’s name and draw a blank? How about those times when you search high and low for your keys? Or, the times when you have to go back to the room you just left in order to remember what you were doing? These common memory lapses sometimes start us wondering if we’re losing it or developing Alzheimer’s, especially as we get older. Don’t despair. Improving your memory is easier than you think with these four steps.

Stay In Shape

    Research shows that people with mild memory problems who exercise or walk for 50 minutes three times a week significantly enhance mental function. Improvements lasted more than a year, even though the exercise extended only 24 weeks. Exercise improves blood flow to the brain. The brain consumes a large percentage of the oxygen and food energy you take in. When poor circulation hampers their delivery, memory is affected.

Stay in Shape Mentally

    People who are involved in challenging work or are otherwise involved in stimulating mental activities reduce their risk of memory loss. Mental exercise builds neural connections and the brain becomes stronger. UCLA researchers discovered people over age 55 who regularly “surfed the Web” had twice as much activity in the areas of the brain involved in complex reasoning and decision making.

Get Smart

    The standard American diet of processed foods is a recipe for dementia. Processed foods are devoid of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients that nourish the brain. Because of inefficient absorption and poor diet, the vast majority of older Americans are deficient in some or all of these nutrients. Choose your foods carefully.

Take Your Supplements

    Simply correcting nutritional deficiencies can bring dramatic improvements in memory and general health. When it comes to cognitive support, nothing is more important than a good nutritional supplement program. By taking these recommendations to heart, you can enjoy optimal mental and memory function for years to come.
    The easiest way to begin to get the suggested supplement recommendations is to take a good daily multivitamin, two or more fish oil capsules and a combination brain/memory formula.

AGGRAND Natural Liquid Fertilizers


New AGGRAND SIGN Helps Spread the Word

   AGGRAND introduces the G2739, AGGRAND sign — a marketing tool for Dealers to place in agricultural fields, garden plots, anywhere AGGRAND fertilizers are used.

These attractive signs feature:
• size — 12 inches wide x 16 inches tall
• weather-resistant lettering on light weight corrugated plastic for stiffness and water resistance
• easily attached to stake with a screw, bolt, stapler or roofing nail
• section for Dealer’s or farmer’s name and phone number

US Dealer: 2 for $15; 6 packs $42
Canadian Dealer: 2 for $20.75; 6 packs $57.75


Some AGGRAND Products See Price Increase

   Because of unavoidable increases in raw material costs, select AGGRAND products will undergo price increases effective Feb. 1, 2010. Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash and, to a lesser degree, Natural Fertilizer are affected. The price of Natural Liquid Lime and Natural Liquid Bonemeal will remain at 2007 prices. In consideration of the increased commissions implemented in the Commercial Program in early 2009, AGGRAND commercial pricing is being equalized with pricing for other AGGRAND marketing programs, simplifying business for AGGRAND Dealers. In addition, AGGRAND pricing will be available in AGGRAND-only price lists separate from the traditional ALTRUM price lists. Watch the Dealer Zone for availability.
   In the meantime, rest assured AGGRAND continues improvement of internal processes to ensure the company delivers the highest quality products at the best possible prices.
