    "ultra-thin lancet for comfortable blood sampling of only 0.3 ml"
    There's nothing comfortable about pricking your finger for 0.3ml of blood. You should check this as most devices draw only a few ul.

  • It Finally Looks Like Something 'Nu' Has Arrived In The Anti-Aging Market [View article]
    BSR, it's not myself vs the TV show, it's what's the leading scientists from the National Institute of Aging and and other research institutions are saying!!! I think the Discovery does a really great job of explaining science to the masses but one should realize that are really big leaps between ideas and concepts in the laboratory and validation of the technology in people, and that's why it's called "science fiction" by one of the experts quoted (When come to think of it, I once saw a show on the possibility of time travel on there). A lot of nutritional supplement companies are really good at telling the story, and it's really unfortunate that the end users and distributors either don't want to or lack the background to assess the claims. Try to be objective for a moment and consider the credential of the experts and what they think about NUS products specifically. I have nothing to do with NUS. I'm not in their MLM network, and I don't use their products. I come here strictly to investigate NUS recent price movements.

    NUS may be good at selling products through their vast MLM distribution network, but when it comes to their claims on the products "reset genes", "reverse aging", and "restore youth" it's best to see what the reputable scientific experts have to say. See the link from Oversouled to a recent Fortune article. Here are some of the quotes regarding Nuskin Ageloc.
    "Experts in the science of aging deride Nu Skin's claims"
    One expert calls its ageLOC claims "science fiction"
    "If someone tells you they know what the mechanism of aging is, they are trying to kid you"
    You get the can buy NUS based on a number criteria, but NOT because of any anti-aging scientific breakthrough claims, the purpose of which in my opinion is to give their sales people and customers a story filled with hypes and technical buzzwords that most simply lack the background to evaluate.
