When it comes to nutrition and supplements, it’s a jungle out there! Confusion about choices, misleading claims, and a shortage of knowledgeable guidance – no wonder you’re confused! And then there’s Plexus, offering high quality products for digestive health, optimal nutrition, and youthful looking skin.
Asheville Plexus distributor Karen Sargent became a Plexus ambassador after seeing some amazing benefits from the products to her own health and well-being. Through her experiences, some of the Plexus products became her favorites.
“I love the TriPlex combo and have taken it for almost 5 years,” Karen said. TriPlex consists of three products: Slim (the “pink drink” that supports healthy glucose metabolism), ProBio5 (a probiotic/enzyme), and BioCleanse (a gentle cleansing agent).
“Plexus focuses on balancing the body from the inside,” Karen said. “Most of the health issues we deal with are really just symptoms, but Plexus supplements address the root cause – blood sugar imbalance, inflammation, and gut health. Common benefits are more energy, better sleep, healthy digestive function, stronger immune system, reduced inflammation, less “brain fog” and chronic discomfort, improvement in autoimmune diseases, healthy weight management, improved blood sugar numbers, and healthy cholesterol levels.”
If Karen had to choose only one Plexus formula, it would be ProBio5, a probiotic whose effectiveness comes from the combination of good bacteria, enzymes, and an antifungal. What makes this product unique and so effective is that it destroys yeast overgrowth first so the good bacteria have room to colonize and thrive. No other probiotic does that.”
“I love what Plexus has done for my husband and me, but I’m more grateful for what it’s done in my children’s lives. My daughter Leah is a violinist and developed an overuse injury in college. She tried every available remedy and finally had cortisone injections to get through her senior recital. After graduation she put her instrument away and didn’t play for more than three years.
“Then Leah began taking TriPlex and within a few months she was completely pain-free. She now teaches middle-school orchestra and plays professionally with no pain. But that’s not all Plexus has done for her.
“Leah suffered with anxiety and PMDD for many years. Getting her body balanced from the inside helped her chronic pain, but she still struggled emotionally and wanted to feel better. When Plexus launched a second probiotic, VitalBiome, which includes bacterial strains shown to help with anxiety and stress, Leah tried it. After a month, my daughter Abbey (her roommate) called me and said, ‘I don’t know what Leah’s taking, but she’s a different person!’ To say that Plexus has changed Leah’s life is not an understatement!”
Karen is always on the lookout for dedicated Plexus ambassadors. “The best ambassadors are products of the products,” she said. “When someone knows first-hand how life changing these supplements are, you can’t shut them down!”
That’s how it began for Karen. “I wanted to lose 10 pounds before my son’s wedding, but the harder I tried, the more frustrated I became. I had no energy, never slept well, craved the wrong foods, and felt hopeless. I’d been listening to my daughters talk about this pink drink, and I just rolled my eyes at what I thought was a scam. Finally, when I saw the pictures of myself at my son’s wedding, I knew I had to at least try it. In the first week I felt more energetic than I had in years and noticed I had less appetite. My sugar cravings disappeared and I began going for a walk after work. By the end of the month, all my pants were loose even though I’d only lost 3 pounds. But best of all, I was feeling so much better! I didn’t realize the extent of my brain fog until it was gone! In the second month, I put my husband on Slim and we’ve never looked back. Together we’ve lost 47 pounds. We’re in our late 50s and have more energy and better health than in our 30s!”
Karen didn’t go into Plexus with the idea of doing it as a business. “When friends started noticing changes in us and asking what we were doing, I had to tell them. So I started sharing what we were doing, and friends began joining me. At first I made enough to cover the cost of our products. Then it became a more significant income that enabled me to quit my job as an editor.”
Company integrity is a very important factor with Plexus ambassadors. “Their philosophy is clear from the start,” Karen said. “To build relationships, put people first, and support true health from the inside out with science-based products that work and that are always high quality and safe. Our core beliefs are simple: be trustworthy, be honest, be reliable, and be responsible.”
So whether your goal is weight loss, greater energy, more youthful skin, or a great independent business, call Karen and find out more about Plexus. “This business isn’t about sales; it’s about people being healthy and happy. Relationships are our focus, and our team approach is company-wide.”
Don’t take anyone’s word for it; find out for yourself if Plexus products are right for you. All Plexus products come with a 60-day money-back guarantee. Use them for 60 days risk-free. “This could be the last thing you ever have to try!” Karen said.

The world of vitamins and nutritional supplements can be a jungle. So many choices and conflicting claims can leave you confused. That’s why we all need a trusted source of great advice. Look no further than New Sun Products in Hendersonville. It’s your one-stop shop for vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and proprietary herbal blends formulated by a Master Herbalist and Naturopathic Doctor.
Owner Cecelia (Ceil) Salvadori loves to set customers on their road to natural health. “At New Sun we believe that the body can heal itself when given the proper environment,” Ceil said. “An environment free from chemicals, toxins, provided with pure water, enriched through education and physical exercise and uplifted by strong spiritual beliefs. The holistic philosophy at New Sun is: body, mind and spirit that work together for the benefit of the whole. “
Established in 1987, New Sun has been helping customers find natural health solutions for 31 years. Co-founder, Jim Salvadori, was a Master Herbalist and N.D. who wanted to help people to better health with exceptional natural supplements. He had experienced major health issues and the holistic path was his ticket to better health. “Our products are natural, they are certified to be free of harmful pesticides and fungicides,” Ceil said. “We strive to offer products that are as close to nature as possible.”
Ceil is more than just the storeowner – she’s a customer. Asked about her favorite product, she said it’s difficult to choose. “That’s hard, since we have well over 100 products” Ceil said. “I take a number of them every day and have for years. I guess if I had to choose one it would be Life Source. It is our number one selling product – the ultimate green drink. It also comes in capsule form. It is formulated to help alkalize the body, it aids with boosting the immune system, it’s a high source of protein derived from spirulina, and it is also a rich source of calcium, again plant based. For me personally, I feel a difference in my energy levels and just have a feeling of balance when I make it part of my daily protocol.”
In addition to great products, New Sun gives personalized guidance on customers’ supplement needs. “New Sun is one of 15 natural products providers that has an FDA approved tool (Zyto Compass) that can provide a personalized report on your body's supplement needs,” Ceil said. “We also offer classes from time to time that are directed toward educating people about ways to improve their health and well-being through natural means. That includes diet.”
Making their way up the ranks of all-time customer favorites are the new Hemp (CBD) products. “They have soared to the number 20 spot in our bestselling product list,” Ceil said. “Again, New Sun believes that our products have to be as close to how they were created in nature as possible. Our CBD Oil is 100% organic hemp, US grown, no flavor additives, no other oils used to cut the efficiency of the hemp.“
New Sun caters to a clientele that wants the best for their health. “Our customers are those who are aware that not all supplements are created equal,” Ceil said. “They understand that in order to experience better health, in many cases, it is necessary for a life style change. Most of our customers want to be the stewards of their own bodies and continue to learn about all that is available in the holistic realm. The staff at New Sun loves working with all of our customers, those who have been with us since 1986 and those who come to us for the first time. Their improved health is our mission.”
Spending as much time as Ceil has in the shop and working daily with customers, she has seen some remarkable things. Ceil describes a few. “One that happened recently, a customer came into the shop and was experiencing an anxiety attack. With the use of an essential oil she was able to regain calm and walked out recovered. “
“Another was years ago but stays in my mind always,” Ceil said. “A well known urologist came into our shop, wanting to know about one of our prostate products. This came as a surprise to us since in many cases mainstream medicine doesn't place much value on supplements. He then explained that several of his patients were taking our products, he noticed real improvement, and he then asked if he could sell the product at his office! That product was sold from his office for over 15 years until he retired. Last but not least, is that our customers become like our family, and they can feel that when they enter our doors.”
If you haven’t experienced New Sun yet, you owe it to your health to stop on in or visit their website. Ceil and her staff are dedicated to your health and well-being. “We are here to help you achieve optimal health in any way we can,” Ceil said. “Our mission is to help people to a better way of life through natural means, using high quality ingredients in our products, giving personalized attention to each customer, and pricing our products so that all can afford them.”

Chiropractors are plentiful in the Asheville area, but they are not all created equal. For the very best in whole family chiropractic care, no one beats Dr. Derek Kasten at One Love Chiropractic.
Specializing and certified in Pediatric and Prenatal Chiropractic Care, Dr. Derek is passionate about family wellness and enjoys working with families seeking something more than the mainstream healthcare model.
After seeing his first child experience traumatic birth and subsequent health issues, Dr. Derek became concerned with the health and well-being of children. “My concern is that there are too many kids suffering from preventable chronic dis-ease, and to me, that is NOT acceptable,” Dr. Derek said. “Furthermore, too many of these children are given medication to cover up their symptoms.“
Treating symptoms is not a focus of chiropractic care. Dr. Derek believes in getting to the core of each person’s health and vitality, rather than focusing on disease or imbalance. “I am looking for the cause and prevention of dis-ease and have no intention on labeling a condition or treating symptoms,” he said.
“At One Love Chiropractic our goal is to set every family on the path toward wellness,” Dr. Derek said. By focusing on some of the challenging issues families need to tackle, he can help families keep the bigger picture in mind – wellness for life. “We specialize in childhood neurodevelopmental disorders, and have years of experience helping children and families find hope and healing.”
Dr. Derek is certified by the International Chiropractic Pediatrics Association (ICPA). He specializes in caring for children and families struggling to cope with serious challenges, such as:
“If a child suffers from one of these conditions, their neurology is in a state of protection and imbalance,” Dr. Derek said. “Chiropractors are essentially functional neurologists. I can help your child’s central nervous system to find balance, and can help to restore it to a normal state so they can start healing again.”
Helping his first child overcome health challenges kindled Dr. Derek’s passion for helping children attain and sustain health and balance. “I am a parent of three young children,” he said. “My first suffered from colic and constipation after a very traumatic birth. She was also diagnosed with Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) when she was less than a year old. Because I was challenged with my daughter and now have two more children, I want the very best for them.”
Dr. Derek’s mission to make children healthy doesn’t stop with his own. “I am still learning and I will not stop trying to be a better parent and husband. I also see so many children who had to suffer like my daughter, and I will do everything in my power to prevent her scenario from happening to others, and to care for every child that needs my help, just like they are my own. I care too damn much.“
Wellness always begins from the child’s point of view. “At One Love Chiropractic, our primary goal is to put ourselves in the shoes of each child with a chronic issue, and help them compassionately,” Dr. Derek said.
In addition to children’s care, Dr. Derek specializes in Pre-Natal Chiropractic Care. Chiropractic care for pregnant women has so many advantages. “There’s no better time than right now to begin caring for yourself and your family,” he said.
Dr. Derek is certified by the ICPA in the Webster Technique for adjusting pregnant women. Chiropractic care during pregnancy is proven to help prevent:
Well-adjusted Moms report feeling better, staying healthy, and experiencing easier and even shorter labors. “And we know it can help with the baby being in the correct position in the uterus at delivery time.”
You don’t need to be a child or an expecting mother to benefit from Dr. Derek’’s services. He also specializes in treatment of athletes with sports injuries. As a former professional and college soccer player, Dr. Derek understands the drive and passion that goes into the love of the game. “Unfortunately, sports injuries are a part of the game, and if you are anything like me, a speedy recovery is a must,” Dr. Derek said.
“The most common areas of injury are the ankles, knees, shoulders, elbows and the spine. “With an injury, the alignment and biomechanics of the spine and body can easily be altered, which results in weakness, instability and an inability to heal quickly and correctly.”
At One Love Chiropractic the goal is to bring your body back into balance. “We make sure everything is in proper alignment and moving optimally so that healing, strength and full recovery can take place as easily and as quickly as possible.”
Sometimes just the stress of daily life can put you out of balance and on the road to dis-ease. Don’t wait until you are injured. Find out today how chiropractic can help you. Contact One Love Chiropractic today.
