Good exercise is defined as scrubbing your bathroom floor raw while bleach and other corrosive chemicals eat away at your skin.
Just kidding! But there’s no denying that doing housework adds to your level of physical activity and contributes to the burning off of calories. Sufficient exercise and proper diet are essential to attaining and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. A great support group would be beneficial as well, especially during those lazy days when you don’t feel like sticking to your healthy habits.
Sometimes, though, even determination and discipline aren’t enough to keep your body at its peak. Due to pollution and the excessive use of chemicals in growing our food, we don’t really get the most out of our fresh produce. The shortest route from farm to table would be the ideal setup, to ensure the preservation of those all-important nutrients ensconced in our delicious fruits and vegetables.
And that is what Nutrilite does, in a sense. Nutrilite is the world’s #1 selling brand of vitamins and dietary supplements, and its seed to supplement process ensures peak concentrations of phytonutrients in its products.
Phytonutrients are plant-based nutrients. They help strengthen our immunity, increase our energy levels, and enhance our quality of life. The different colors of fruits and vegetables usually relate to a range of health benefits. Purple fruits and vegetables, for example, promote brain health. Orange produce contribute to eye health and green plants help with cellular development. Red aids the heart, while white supports bones and joints.
The World Health Organization says that around 75% of the world’s population doesn’t eat the recommended 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables daily. Even if we “eat the rainbow”, there will still be a gap between what we need and what we actually consume. To fill in the deficiency in our diet, we must also eat the leprechaun and his pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Just kidding! A simpler solution would be taking vitamins and dietary supplements to complement nutritious meals and a healthy lifestyle. Nutrilite has pioneered phytonutrient supplements since 1934, and continues to develop products for personal daily nutrition, heart health, strong bones, and weight management. Its top selling products are NUTRILITE Protein Powder, DOUBLE X/TRIPLE X® Vitamin/Mineral/Phytonutrient, and Vitamin C.
Nutrilite products are available exclusively from Amway, the world’s number one direct selling business. Amway was founded by entrepreneurs Rich DeVos and Jay Van Andel in 1959 and is based in Ada, Michigan, U.S.A. Its bestselling brands are NUTRILITE™ vitamins, minerals, and dietary supplements, ARTISTRY™ skincare and color cosmetics, and eSpring™ water treatment systems.
To commemorate Nutrilite’s 80th anniversary, Amway and the Nutrilite Health Institute have released The Global Phytonutrient Report: A Global Snapshot of Fruit and Vegetable Intake, and Implications for Phytonutrient Intakes. Report highlights are being shared throughout 2014 during the Color Your Story World Tour. The tour features Nutrilite scientists, other experts, and Dr. Sam Rehnborg, the president of the Nutrilite Health Institute.
“These results are a big part of helping people understand how they can and should eat in order to fill their nutritional gaps and make an investment each and every day to live healthier lives for the benefit of their families and for themselves. Nutrilite’s philosophy of optimal health embodies healthy balanced nutrition that includes an abundance of plant foods and regular physical activity or exercise as two key foundational components for everyone,” said Dr. Keith Randolph, Technology Strategist at the Nutrilite Health Institute.
