Mangosteen – the royal fruit

Ah, she’s the “Queen of all fruits,” favored as a dessert or used to make sweet jams. Queen Victoria claimed it as her favorite, and Carolus Linnaeus, MD, a Swedish naturalist once said, “It is very wholesome, refreshing and more cordial than the strawberry.”1

We’re talking about the Mangosteen fruit, the namesake for Mangosteen Superfruit juice by PURE. This mandarin-sized, purple-skinned fruit has a thick velvety stalk and thick, waxy skin. The inside consists of white fleshy sections, similar in appearance to garlic pods. These sections melt in your mouth and have a fragrant flavor.

Native to Southeast Asia, the mangosteen was traditionally used as an herbal remedy for its ability to promote a healthy inflammatory response. In fact, a tea made from the mangosteen fruit is used in the Caribbean as a tonic for fatigue and low energy.* 2 More than 60 different xanthones, or antioxidants, may help the body maintain a healthy homeostasis state.3 These nutrients are found in the rind of the fruit. The inside sections contain vitamin C, fiber and potassium, as well as polyphenols (antioxidants).

Studies suggest that xanthones may promote healthy bodily functions, including supporting the body’s natural defenses, neutralizing free radicals, and supporting joint function.*

Mangosteen Lemonade

The flavor of mangosteen pairs nicely with lemon in this refreshing drink. Serves one.

Ingredients:

  • 2 fl. oz. Mangosteen Superfruit juice
  • 3 fl. oz. chilled water
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar (preferable organic cane sugar)**
  • Ice cubes – optional

Directions:

  1. Add sugar to water and stir to dissolve.
  2. Add Mangosteen and lemon juice to water.
  3. Add ice cubes if desired.

** May also substitute stevia and/or naturally sourced erythritol

Super Noni

Meet the noni, a large, light-colored fruit that grows in tropical climates, and was traditionally used as a food, an herbal remedy and nourishing tonic in the Polynesian islands. It is also a key ingredient in one of our Superfruits at PURE. Noni is deemed “super” when it comes to your health, and we are about to share why.

Polynesians ate noni fruit as a stimulant and as a way to combat fatigue and promote endurance.1 The fruit has been used for centuries as herbal and folk medicine in Indonesia, Hawaii, Australia and other tropical islands. The warm climate and nutrient-rich soil of the tropics guarantee perfect growing conditions for the noni fruit.

Nourishing noni

Studies have shown noni to be an antioxidant powerhouse, with immune-stimulating properties. Noni is naturally high in polyphenols, minerals and other nutritious compounds, including vitamin C and potassium. Vitamin C is an important antioxidant that is necessary for growth and development and is required to produce collagen, a protein. Potassium is a vital mineral that helps muscles and nerves communicate.*2

Topical treatment of pain and bruising is one of the most common uses of the noni plant in tropical alternative medicine. In fact, one of the traditional names for noni in the Caribbean was “pain killer”. A study suggests that noni juice improves range of motion and reduces pain in the joints.*2

Nothing but noni

Noni Superfruit by PURE uses 100% pure morinda citrifolia, the tree noni comes from. It is not diluted with other juices, and is kosher, gluten-free and vegan. Our formulation uses no additives or fillers so your body is benefiting from the whole fruit.

Noni Smoothie

If you are averse to the strong taste of noni, you might want to try the following recipe for a sweet tasting and nutritious smoothie.

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz. Noni Superfruit
  • ¼ cup cranberry juice
  • ¼ cup pomegranate or apple juice
  • 1 cup ice
  • ½ cup water
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • ½ cup frozen cranberries
  • ½ avocado (sliced)
  • 1 apple, cored
  • ½ cup chopped kale
  • Optional: cayenne or stevia

Directions:

  1. Add liquid ingredients to a blender followed by avocado and then the remaining ingredients.
  2. Puree until smooth.
  3. Add a bit of cayenne for a flavorful kick or stevia to enhance the sweetness.

Order Noni today and reap the benefits.

Getting to know Dr. Haiyan Li, PURE Formulation Scientist

Meet Dr. Haiyan Li, the mastermind behind all of our products at PURE. Her role as a formulation scientist is to formulate products, and Dr. Li is an expert at creating and maintaining all of PURE’s formulas.

Not only does she formulate new products, she reformulates current products as needed and stays up-to-date on the latest trends and published research. She also works with vendors to ensure the accuracy, purity and safety of raw materials.

“I take great pride in knowing that our products are helping others,” says Dr. Li. “It is pleasing to see people love the products I make.”

Every morning, Dr. Li can be found in PURE’s in-house Research & Development laboratory creating products, organizing and working with vendors to ensure they can duplicate the formulas. She meets weekly with material suppliers who share new information about raw materials trends, research and clinical studies. She also spends time reading journals and websites to stay up-to-date on the latest trends.

Dr. Li collaborates daily with Darin Blackhurst, Director of Research and Development & Quality. Darin works closely with members of the Wellness Advisory Board. After meeting with Darin, Dr. Li drafts a preliminary formula with key ingredients to ensure the viability of the product. She adds different flavor agents to ensure the finished product mixes well and tastes great.

“It’s not easy creating a product,” says Dr. Li. “From drafting the formula to finishing the piece, it takes a lot of time and effort. There might be several versions of a formula that we have to discard and recreate if its effect, taste and dosage are not to our liking.”

Dr. Li appreciates our Independent Business Owners for their support and love of the products she creates. They encourage her to work hard and create more. She is currently working on some new ideas, but wouldn’t share her secrets … not yet, at least.  She looks forward to surprising our IBOs with new products that will help everyone maximize their overall well-being.

 

Dr. Haiyan Li has a Ph.D. in Chemistry from University of Maine. She lives in Frisco, Texas with her two daughters and husband. She enjoys traveling and watching her children play volleyball.

Reflecting on 9/11

Today, on the seventeenth anniversary of 9/11, Patriot Day, we remember the tragic events, loss of life and the profound effect on people’s lives.  We remember the 2,977 people whose lives were stolen, their families, and the many, many others who were injured, or who suffered long-term health effects due to the terrorist attacks in New York, Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania.

For me, this event was personal as it happened in my country and in the city in which I was born. I believe that 9/11 changed us all.

Not only do we mourn our losses, but we celebrate our fortitude and our passion for positive change. As Americans, we have a strong resolve not to yield when adversity strikes. We unite as a nation not to be cowed, but instead to push forward. Patriot Day reminds me of the great dedication we have as a community, and a country.

The American people are famous for the unity embodied by our flag and in our love of country. We are blessed that in adversity, we come together in strength.

Today, we shall spend a moment in silence together to remember those who lost their lives, and to offer gratitude for those who work to make our lives better.

Ryan Takao takes on the Team28 Challenge

Here at PURE, we’ve been running the Team28 Challenge with fantastic results. We have over one-hundred participants, with the majority already enthusing and telling us about their great gains in energy levels and losses of both weight and belly fat, along with changes in body composition.

The Team28 Challenge involves committing to a 28-day Detox Plan. Carefully selected products by PURE help detoxification by nutritionally supporting the body’s natural health-maintaining processes.

One of the earliest participants this summer was Independent Business Owner (IBO), Ryan Takao. Over the last few years, he’d been seeing worsening results in his annual health screening blood-work and so he participated in the Team28 Challenge to improve his health. He told us, “I did it because of my triglycerides and cholesterol levels and I didn’t want to medicate.” And, wow, has he got great results: his triglycerides are down from 323 to 99 and his cholesterol measurement was 224 and is now down to 124 – with improved HDL and LDL levels. As Ryan puts it, “I have gotten my health back naturally.”

But there is more to this story. When we spoke with Ryan, he told us that his father is a physician. “My dad’s numbers had been going in the wrong direction for several years, despite being on medications. When he saw the results I was getting, he was mad at me for telling so many people about the 28-day Detox Plan, but not him. He’s now received his own Detox Kit and has started the Challenge.”

It’s not a surprise that Ryan’s dad wanted to join in: have a look at Ryan’s before and after photos. They speak volumes. The Team28 Challenge is continuing to run throughout September. We’ll be featuring other participants on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/livepureglobal/

And if you’d like to join Ryan in the 28-Day Challenge, click on this link.

Yoga – peace among the chaos

The Department of Health and Human Services has designated September as National Yoga Month to educate about the health benefits of yoga and inspire a healthy lifestyle.

More than just a physical exercise program, yoga can help people achieve clarity and harmony in life. You don’t need any special skills to begin practicing yoga. Yoga offers the opportunity to improve your mind, body and spirit; improvements in your balance and poses will come naturally as you practice.

Yoga is a healthy discipline

A friend once told me she wanted to find a yoga class that would maintain her interest. She had attended many classes, but she got bored with them, either from a lack of connection with the teacher, the type of yoga, or because it just wasn’t the “right” time.

There is a plethora of wonderful yoga classes and amazing teachers at the gym I go to. I attended a few yoga classes because I thought I needed the calming affect they provide, but I never felt I accomplished anything. Sometimes I felt more stressed because it wasn’t the high-intensity exercise I was used to.  What I didn’t realize is that there are many kinds of yoga available, from the meditative, calming kind to more physically demanding classes.

Styles of yoga

Hatha yoga and Yin yoga are good choices for beginners. These are both slower paced and use the classic approach to breathing and exercise. If you want to relax, these styles are for you.

If you are looking for yoga that is slow and comfortable, try Iyengar yoga. This kind focuses on precise movements. Poses are held for longer periods of time while focusing on controlled breathing. This class often uses props to help hold your pose.1

Kundalini yoga is equal parts spiritual and physical. This type really works your core and breathing, with fast-moving, invigorating postures and breathing exercises.1

Ashtanga yoga is for the advanced person. These postures are more physically demanding, with standing and floor postures. 1

Vinyasa yoga is the most athletic of yoga styles. The movement is coordinated with your breath and you move to flow from one pose to another. Jivamukti yoga is similar to this style, but infused with Hindu spiritual rituals. 1

If you want to sweat, Bikram yoga may be for you. This yoga is done in a sauna-like room that is set to 105 degrees.

Cleanse your mind and really relax after a hard day’s work with restorative yoga. The name itself describes this type of yoga.

Yoga can be great for pregnant mothers. Prenatal yoga is adapted specifically for moms-to-be in all trimesters. This style really prepares Mom for labor and delivery by focusing on breathing, pelvic work and bonding with the baby.

My daughter and I signed up to participate in a goat yoga class. My daughter has a fascination with goats, and I love yoga, so I thought we’d combine the two. It was fun! The owner walked around placing a baby goat on the backs of people, upon request. Goat yoga is definitely a trend that is happening all over the United States.

Not into goat yoga? Try out yoga in the company of puppies, the latest trend! This is a great way to do Downward-Facing Dog while getting kisses from man’s best friend, and lowering your stress levels. Also, proceeds often benefit animal rescue charities.

A new magic

I continue to participate in yoga, not only to test my body, but also to test my spirit.  Through yoga, I’ve discovered a new magic within me and I’ve changed my outlook on life. Yoga allows me to bring peace to any chaos from the day.

As you know, PURE is a big proponent of exercise, for both our health and well-being. Yoga is just one way to exercise in a fun way that will help you feel great and stay fit.
