Kathryn Stephens’ Race for Weight Loss Challenge in February. Her positive
attitude and winning approach to life is truly motivating to all who hear her story.
My name is Eugénelle Trudeau. I am a single parent of three children.
Since my introduction to Immunotec, I have been a very happy person!
Last September, I began to seriously use Immunotec products; namely
Immunocal/HMS 90 with Immunotec’s Co-Factor Multi-Vitamin and
Mineral Supplement which have greatly helped improve my overall health.
Today, though, I’m here to talk to you about two new products I have
tried; the PRYCENA shake and PRYCENA THERMAL ACTION. I cannot
believe it! In February, I received the email about Kathryn’s Challenge

an overall feeling of well-being.
Dr. Bruce Ames, winner of the National Medal of Science is quoted as saying,
“You might as well stand unprotected in front of an x-ray machine as to
not eat enough fruits and vegetables.”
The 8 to 10 servings of whole foods each day takes considerable focus and
effort. To bring it into perspective, this number is equivalent to 21/2 cups
of vegetables and 2 cups of fruit. In addition, the fresher, closer to home
(average food travels 2,000 miles) and the more natural (with the best
being organic), the better.
The push for fruits and vegetables is based on their huge number of
phytonutrients, also called micronutrients, which I call ‘mini-vitamins’.
These micronutrients are very important, and may reduce the risk of some
types of cancer and contribute to improved health. A fresh veggie or fruit
shake every day makes great sense on this model. However, when I am
rushed, traveling, or simply ‘lazy’, I use both of the Grass Valley products;
Grass Valley Fruit Complex and Grass Valley Vegetable Complex.
Each of us is unique when it comes to our need for micronutrients. Hence
we must eat multiple fruits and vegetables to have the optimal carotenoids
(about 600!), anthocyanins and other potent plant nutrients.

TRUDEAU / From the front cover

My family and friends began to notice that I was losing weight and everyone started to ask how I was doing it. Of course,
that’s when I told them about PRYCENA.
As unbelievable as it might seem, this great contest brought me the courage to lose weight plus it provided me with an
opportunity to develop new clientele. But most of all, as a single parent, I realized that I am capable of doing something for
myself that is very worthwhile.
                                    In the next day or so, I will meet with two new customers only because I have talked to
                                    them about Immunotec. It’s true to say that we can move forward when our overall
                                    vision changes; my current vision is to progress and look toward building my business
                                    with Immunotec.
                                    I have a dream! I visualize this dream almost every night before going to bed and I am
                                    convinced that I will fulfill this dream. I am surprising myself, as before I became part

                                            my daughters are enjoying the meals I prepare and say that they feel much better as well.
                                            I should mention that I’ve tried many diets before, but my daughters didn’t like the food and I felt very
