SPECIAL SEC TION
FOR YOUR HEALTH
PONCE DE LEÓN discovered Florida while searching for the Fountain of Youth. You just have to
go to Costco and pick up SeroVital capsules. OK,
SeroVital may not be the magic bullet de León was
looking for, but when used in conjunction with a
healthy lifestyle, exercise and diet, it may help.
SeroVital claims to help increase the pituitary
gland’s production of human growth hormone
(HGH). One clinical study says it increased HGH levels by 682 percent, and it does it naturally. SeroVital
is a patented oral amino acid complex. HGH injections, which you might receive in a health provider’s
office, may contain a synthetic hormone, which
could actually limit the body’s natural production.
Among the health claims for HGH: It may reduce
body fat and wrinkles, tighten saggy skin, improve
sleep, boost energy, improve mood, increase lean
muscle mass and strengthen bones. As with all
supplements, there are potential risks, so you
should seek medical advice before using SeroVital.
SeroVital is not exclusive to Costco, but the savings are. Most other retailers sell a 30-day supply
(120-count), but we offer a 40-day supply (160-count)
for $99.99. That’s generally a 25 percent saving.
SeroVital is available at your local warehouse and on

SPRING IS A glorious time of year for most people. Yet, for many, spring means allergies, and
allergy season can begin as early as February in some places and last well into the summer.
Allergies often cause cold-like symptoms such as itchiness of the nose, mouth, eyes
and ears, along with watery eyes, runny nose, congestion and sneezing. These symptoms are caused by an allergic response to indoor or outdoor allergens, such as mold,
grass, trees and pollen. The best way to know if you have allergies is to visit a board-certified allergist for testing.
There is some good news for allergy sufferers: In recent years, the Food and Drug
Administration has approved several popular, and formerly prescription-only, nasal
sprays for over-the-counter use by adults and children age 4 and older.
Kirkland Signature™ Aller-Flo 50 micrograms contains fluticasone propionate
(glucocorticoid), which is comparable to the active ingredient of Flonase Allergy Relief.
Aller-Flo nasal spray relieves a broad range of uncomfortable allergy symptoms. (For
effective allergy relief, doctors recommend both a nasal allergy spray and an oral antihistamine for some patients.)
Talk to your doctor or a Costco pharmacist about which allergy medication may be
right for you. Kirkland Signature Aller-Flo is available in warehouses and at Costco.com.

TURMERIC, A MEMBER of the ginger family, is a
distinctive yellow spice that has been used for
thousands of years in Southeast Asia, China
and India for cooking and medicinal purposes.
Turmeric’s health benefits are linked to curcuminoids, a group of active compounds that,
when used in the right form and in the right
dosage, are reputed to support your body’s
natural inflammatory response process and
boost your daily antioxidant potential.
Turmeric powder contains just 4 percent
curcuminoids; when taken orally, its compounds are rapidly metabolized and excreted
by the body. High doses are required to achieve
the desired concentration of curcuminoids in
To overcome this, Youtheory Turmeric uses
a concentrated form of turmeric that is standardized to 95 percent curcuminoids (delivering
20 times more curcuminoids than average turmeric powder). It is also infused with a patented
black pepper extract that boosts the absorption
of curcuminoids by 2,000 percent. Youtheory’s
combination of turmeric and black pepper elevates this simple culinary spice into a superfood. Available in the warehouse. Item #1080377.—Mary Arriola
