Residents across the greater Phoenix area are noticing a lot of product shipped from right here in Camp Hill on shelves of various health food stores. Dr. Frank Jackson, a retired Gastroenterologist and lifelong entrepreneur, has recently found success with his formula for a prebiotic fiber supplement called Prebiotin. Health food stores from New York to California are now selling his family of nutritional supplements.

The locally developed formula is a daily fiber supplement that easily dissolves in water and is supported by as much research as you can handle! Prebiotics feed good bacteria in your colon, improving immunity and regulating overall digestive health. A few proven health benefits of natural prebiotics are stronger bones, bowel regularity, reduced risk of cancerous polyps, better control over appetite, and correction of ‘leaky gut’. These are just a few of the many health benefits that research has linked to adding prebiotics to your daily diet.

Dr. Frank Jackson has recently been featured in a number of publications and media outlets in health crazy Arizona, and his product continues to grow a loyal following here in Pennsylvania as well. For any Harrisburg locals, you can find the product on the shelves of The Healthy Grocer in Camp Hill. Better yet, order directly from Prebiotin.com and you’ll receive free shipping!

For anyone suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Crohn’s Disease, or any other digestive issues, definitely give this product a try and support a local entrepreneur!

It has recently occurred to me after randomly stumbling upon a few wonderful ethnic grocery stores that Harrisburg has quite a few shops unfortunately existing under the radar for most people.

After hearing good things about this new little spot in Camp Hill I decided to stop in for dinner and sample the homemade noodles for myself. It’s funny because the place used to be a Long John Silvers, but they really have cleaned it up quite nice, you probably wouldn’t notice unless you already knew what it used to be. Personally, I’m really not too disappointed with the change of cuisine (does anyone actually eat at Long John Silvers?). The inside isn’t too big, just a collection of small tables for those who wish to eat in and a counter for those who wish to take their food elsewhere.

For our dinner, my counterpart chose the beef pho and I took on the spicy jam bong. We both agreed that the pho was just average, as we are quite spoiled by a number of great Vietnamese restaurants here in Harrisburg, but the jam bong- delightful. It was deliciously spicy and included a collection of chicken, carrots, and cabbage on top of homemade wheat noodles. Unlike the rice noodles used in the pho, the homemade wheat noodles were noticeably fresh and perfectly cooked.

Besides the pho and jam bong, the Asian Noodle house has a host of various Asian dishes including Thai food and the regular American-Chinese food favorites. If meat isn’t your thing they also have a number of tofu dishes to accommodate your kind (I don’t know how you do it). All in all, I like the place quite a bit. The restaurant is clean and the staff were all very kind so in my book the Asian Noodle House is definitely worth a return visit.
