Spring cleansing

When the weather warms up and the flowers start to bloom, it’s time for spring cleaning, or spring cleansing. We can finally open the windows and start dusting what has settled over the winter. Along with cleaning the house and swapping out my winter clothes for shorts and T-shirts, I want to be sure I cleanse my body, too.

We live in a toxic environment and our bodies are bombarded with chemicals and other potentially harmful substances on a daily basis. Toxins are found in the food we eat, the air we breathe, and the water we drink. They can also be found in commercially packaged products we buy and probably use every day. These toxins are causing us to be ill.

How do I know if I need to detox?

The following signs may indicate toxic overload in the body. If you suffer from any of these on a regular basis, you might try cleansing and see if they disappear.

  • Low energy
  • Constipation
  • Mental fog or trouble focusing
  • Having trouble losing weight
  • Intestinal or digestive upset

How do toxins enter the body?

Toxins enter the body through inhalation, through our gastrointestinal tract and through our skin.

Things like painting the house, varnishing the furniture, bringing home new furniture, dry cleaning, and cooking are all sources of many indoor air pollutants. Household cleaning products and toiletries contribute to indoor air toxins. We end up inhaling these toxins or absorbing them through our skin. Things like chemicals used in agriculture, fumes, air pollution and many other factors contribute to internal toxins. Consider using natural cleaning products or homemade remedies for cleaning the house.

When we drink caffeine and alcohol, we are ingesting toxins. When we eat bread, cheese and processed meat, we are ingesting salt, saturated fats, chemicals, hormones and antibiotics that all put a strain on the liver. These things can also cause high blood pressure, bloating and kidney problems. Medications, food additives, preservatives, food colorings, sweeteners and flavor enhancers contribute to internal toxins as well.

Detox naturally with HealthTrim® Cleanse.

A CORE4 product, HealthTrim Cleanse is a gentle, natural, non-fasting way to remove harmful toxins from the body through the seven channels of elimination: Blood, Colon, Kidney, Liver, Lung, Lymph, and Skin.

HealthTrim Cleanse includes unique ingredients that support each channel:

  • Blood is supported by Burdock (root), Red Clover (herb), and Dandelion (root & leaf).
  • Colon is supported by Cascara Sagrada (Bark), and Aloe Vera (leaf)
  • Kidney is supported by Dandelion (root & leaf)
  • Liver is supported by milk thistle (seed), artichoke (leaf), and garlic (bulb)
  • Lymph is supported by oregano oil
  • And finally, Skin is supported by dandelion (root & leaf) and green tea (leaf)

HealthTrim Cleanse also helps you meet and/or maintain your weight loss goals. You might be surprised with how much waste you have in your intestines. HealthTrim Cleanse supports clearing out your intestines. HealthTrim Cleanse is one of the products in PURE’s Rally28 weight-loss system, as it supports the elimination of these toxins from the body, promoting digestive health while maintaining normal intestinal microflora.

In addition to supplementing with HealthTrim Cleanse, be sure to eat a healthy diet, get regular cardiovascular exercise, hydrate with water, and eliminate alcohol, coffee, cigarettes, refined sugars and saturated fats, and increase digestive enzymes by eating fruits and vegetables.

Eating leafy greens and sprouted foods may help cleanse your body. Leafy greens, such as arugula, bok choy, endive, kale, lettuce, mustard greens, cabbage, spinach, Swiss chard and wild greens contain vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and chlorophyll, which help purify the blood and organs. Bulking up your diet with these foods can help your body. Consider adding several of these to your daily regimen to help create better health and vitality.

How well do your know your B6 vitamins?

Knowledge is power and the more you know about vitamins, their benefits and their safe consumption, the wiser and healthier you’ll be.

All eight of the B vitamins, the energy vitamins, are important in helping the body convert food into fuel. B vitamins also help fight infection and disease. It’s also important to note that excessive consumption can be unhealthy.

In this blog post, we are going to educate on vitamin B6, also called pyridoxine. It plays a part in such major functions including movement, memory and blood flow. Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin meaning is dissolves in water so the body cannot store it. Leftovers leave the body through urine.

Adults ages 19 to 50 need 1.3 milligrams of vitamin B6 daily, while older senior women need 1.5 milligrams and senior men need 1.7 milligrams.1 The recommended supplemental, tolerable upper intake level is 100 mg (5,000% DV).2

Benefits of vitamin B6

  • Maintains normal nerve function
  • Supports a healthy gut
  • Balances healthy levels of blood sugar
  • Aids in the function of enzymes and protein metabolism

Deficiencies of vitamin B6

Not enough vitamin B6 intake may be linked to depression, and can also cause anemia. A lack of vitamin B6 can cause confusion, nausea, susceptibility to infections and skin rashes.

Be careful not to overdo it

According to the federal government, you should not take more than 100 milligrams of vitamin B6 a day (the upper tolerable limit), in supplement form. However, high intakes of vitamin B6 from food is safe.

Taking too much vitamin B6 in supplement form can cause nerve damage, sensitivity to the sun, painful skin lesions and nausea and heartburn. Taking vitamin B6 can also interfere with several types of medications.1

GoYin, Daily Build, 360 Compete Shake, Metabolic ONE, GPS Rebuild, GPS Energize, GPS Hydrate, ENERGY and PURE Café all contain B vitamins, including B6. If you took the recommended servings of these products, which is 2 times a day, your vitamin B6 intake would be approximately 90 mg.

However, if you were to take more than the suggested serving, approximately 3-4 times a day, you would be surpassing the safe limit.

Following the recommended serving of every supplement is very important, as you want to be careful not to go significantly above the recommended allowance. Every product pack contains a Daily Usage Guide that offers suggested product use throughout the day for optimal benefits. Be sure to read the product labels or learn more about each product and its recommended use at livepure.com.

PURE’s Product Evolution: Continuing Advances in Quality and Efficacy

The Evolution of Science

Fully understanding human physiology, with its tremendous complexity, will certainly not occur at any point in our lifetime. In fact, to say that we have only “scratched the surface” probably overstates the current level of our knowledge in this area. It’s fair to say that as science continues to unlock new bits of information about the wondrous workings of the human body, we are provided a growing insight into the biological processes that make us fully functional and vital individuals.

Along with this evolving knowledge of human physiology comes the potential to improve our health. Applying each new scientific finding to the established base of knowledge and conventional wisdom moves us closer to the eradication of disease, the prevention of degenerative bodily processes, and the lifting of barriers to optimal performance.

PURE’s Product Philosophy

We are committed to providing excellent and effective products based on the best of science and nature. As science progresses, PURE relentlessly examines how best to use the new information to innovate as well as improve each of our products. Science does not stand still, and neither will we. Making the products more efficacious, aligned with Nature, and with quicker and more reliable results, is an ongoing endeavor and an important part of who we are at PURE.

PURE strives to create products that are natural, derived from natural sources, or made through natural processes, free of artificial dyes or colors, flavors, sweeteners, and other potentially harmful ingredients.

PURE continually evaluates our ingredients and makes improvements, following FDA guidelines, in order to provide you with safe, effective, top-of-the-line products to support your personal health goals. Year after year, PURE will continue to be at the forefront of nutritional science.

Ingredient spotlight: Melatonin

While you sleep, your body works the night shift. It’s time to build muscle cells, detoxify the body and support weight loss. The brain is busy too, producing a hormone called melatonin. This hormone has a big responsibility in helping to control your circadian rhythm, or internal clock, which regulates feelings of sleepiness and wakefulness.

Melatonin tells your brain when it is time to sleep. The amount of light you are exposed to and your circadian rhythm both influence how much melatonin your brain produces. This cycle is critical as your body needs adequate sleep for optimal well-being. If this cycle is not kept in balance, our body’s production of melatonin is disrupted.

Why is melatonin important?

I think we all know what disruption of sleep, or lack of sleep, feels like. Our mood is effected and we might find it hard to focus and concentrate.  A lack or absence of sleep affects you physically and emotionally. Sleep is critical in your journey to Whole Health.

Melatonin is necessary for adequate sleep. Melatonin slows your heart rate and your blood pressure falls. Melatonin aids the immune system, it helps eye function, it can reduce oxidative stress and protects against radiation.

A lack of melatonin can stress out our cells. If your body doesn’t relax during sleep, this can cause fatigue during the day. A disruption of melatonin has also been associated with the development of Alzheimer’s disease and even cancer.1

People who live close to the North Pole where there is 24 hours of daylight during their summers make little to no melatonin. They often experience irritability or restlessness. Some develop insomnia or a condition called hypomania, which is characterized by an increase in energy levels and a feeling of euphoria similar to bipolar disorder. These people are more prone to depression in the dark months.2

MelaTrim by PURE

MelaTrim sleep and weight-loss support, a HealthTrim® product, is a combination of herbs, amino acids, minerals and melatonin that together help the body get adequate sleep while also burning calories naturally. A Relaxation Blend of botanicals help the body relax, an Extended-Release Technology provides an initial dose of melatonin to help you fall asleep quickly then gradually delivers a second dose to help you stay asleep through the night, and a non-stimulating Metabolic Blend helps the body burn calories during sleep.*


  • Helps the body relax mentally and physically with a Relaxation Blend of botanicals, including magnesium, L-theanine, passionflower and chamomile*
  • Helps the body fall asleep, stay asleep and wake up refreshed with Extended-Release Technology that delivers melatonin in stages throughout the night*
  • Helps the body burn calories naturally while you sleep with a non-stimulating Metabolic-Boosting Pepper Blend*
  • Non-dairy, non-GMO and naturally gluten-free
  • No artificial colors, yeast, sugar or sweeteners, soy, wheat or preservatives
  • Vegetarian capsules
  • Made in a U.S. third-party-certified FDA GMP compliant facility

It’s important to note that sleep disturbances may not always be the cause of low melatonin. Side effects from medications and other illnesses might be the cause. Always consult your healthcare provider first before taking any supplements.




The art of GoYin bottle recycling
