Success Story


A NuPlus Story:  By Trish Powers

I suppose everyone in Sunrider has a product, which they’d hate to do without.  For me, although I love the Calli, Fortune Delight, Quinary, and other products, the food my body needs most is NuPlus.  You see, it seems to me that just as certain families may have a tendency not to produce, say enough insulin, it is also true that some families tend to have a tougher time producing proper brain chemistry, resulting in depression and other disorders like learning disabilities and eating disorders.

Before Sunrider, I had suffered from lifelong depression, which appeared to worsen, the older I got.  Despite all manner of pharmaceutical intervention, by age 40, I could no longer work.  The doctors, exasperated with my case, finally pronounced my condition “old age” (at 40 mind you!), and told me that I’d just have to learn to live with it.

There was nothing left for me to do but to pray for a miracle.  Two long years later, that’s exactly what I got…in the form of a SunPack, of all things.  I ate the SunPack as directed, and on the fourth day, I was granted my miracle… the depression was lifting!  I could once again think and remember and make decisions.

It seems that what was wrong with me was that my brain was just hungry!  For some reason I just couldn’t make the brain chemistry my body was so desperate for.

Could it have been so simple all along?  Skeptically, I put my own theory to the test.  After I had eaten my entire first supply of NuPlus packets, I didn’t replace it right away.  Guess what?  I found that if I went without NuPlus for four days, the symptoms returned.  My dear husband Tom, who had watched me struggle for nearly a quarter of a century, observed all this and simply but emphatically said, “Don’t ever run out of that stuff again!

I have since learned that in certain kinds of depression like Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.), blood seratonin levels normalize when patients spend two hours a day in the sun, four days in a row (just like four days of Sunrider!).  Here up north in snowy Michigan, NuPlus is my “sunshine in a canister.”  And guess what?  I took my husband’s advice: Twelve years later, I have never let myself run out of “that stuff” again!


How to Eat:


NuPlus is great to consume between or before meals.  Conveniently sized so it’s handy to take with you anywhere!   NuPlus powder can be eaten straight from the package, in water, juice or Calli and/or Fortune Delight.  Add Sunectar (Suncare in Canada) or SunnyDew (Suncare Plus in Canada) to taste.  Great added to smoothies, fruit or pasta salads, rice or soymilk, yogurt, cereal, baked goods, or any table food you like!  Eat a minimun of 2 scoops a day.  Many people eat 5 to 10 scoops a day!  

VitaShake or NuPuffs count as your daily NuPlus, if you enjoy those instead or in addition!



NUPLUS – Ingredients Summary


Traditional Uses

Coix Fruit

(Main ingredient in NuPlus).  Extremely regenerative; powerful anti-oxidant, restores energy; counters diarrhea; helps eliminate excess water; strengthens defense and nervous systems; lowers cholesterol, stabilizes blood sugar levels, reduces muscle tension; expels poisons; beautifies skin.

Yellow Bean


(Second ingredient in NuPlus)   Delays aging, eases menopause (has good, harmless plant estrogen); beneficial to weight management; fights fatigue; helps regulate blood sugar; strengthens the spleen; lessens indigestion; and lowers harmful LDL cholesterol without affecting beneficial HDL (soy compound genestein helps block formation of fatty plaques, reducing a risk of heart disease).  (NOTE:  - Dr. Chen does not use indigestible soy protein ISOLATE. – see notes below)  Dr. Chen soaks the beans to start the sprouting process, which increases the nutritional benefits of NuPlus.  The sprouting process allows more of the enzymes, vitamins and minerals to be digested, plus it eases digestion and helps eliminate excess gas.

Chinese Yam

Counters coughing; helps correct hormonal imbalance, helps reduce inflammation; strengthens kidneys, stomach, spleen, lungs, adrenal glands, and reproductive system.  (Dr. Chen will use only Chinese Yam since Mexican Yam contains saponin, which is medicinal and can be poisonous  Dr. Chen has warned us of this source, telling us that it is a steroid containing cortisone.)

Fox Nut

Helps relieve joint pains in legs and back, diarrhea, and chronic fever; increases energy.

Lotus Seed

Nourishes deficient spleen; strengthens heart and circulation; and helps peristalsis.

Lotus Root

Absorbs clots and bruises; stops bleeding; and aids in circulation

Water Lily Bulb

Benefits poor circulation; helps relieve joint pains, diarrhea, incontinence, thirst, dizziness, restlessness, chronic fever, and stomach disorders; increases energy and systemic balance.

Green Bean

Nourishes and strengthens the liver; helps reduce age spots

Red Bean

Nourishes and strengthens the heart.

Black Bean

Nourishes and strengthens the kidneys, reproductive system, and immune system.

White Bean

Nourishes and strengthens the kidneys and immune system; strengthens the pancreas; and helps to eliminate mucous.

Imperate root

Is highly nourishing; anti-inflammatory; anti-viral
