ATEoftheWeek_0216Q: Are there any Genesis PURE products that would cause blood thinning?

A: There are ingredients, botanicals, and vitamins which may have blood thinning properties found in many of the Genesis PURE products. We recommend taking a list of the products you take, including their ingredients, to a doctor to determine which products are appropriate.

Q: Does Alkaline Water Concentrate lower uric acid levels in the body?

A: Alkaline Water Concentrate was not designed to lower the uric acid levels in the body. But studies have shown that “diets poor in purine-rich food, sugars, alcohol and rich in vegetables and water intake” may help with uric acid levels in the body (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3606968/). Alkaline Water Concentrate was created to help increase the pH levels and reduce the oxidative potential of the water you drink. The pH of food and beverages will change when entering the body as a result of the acidity of the stomach. Some studies have also show that alkaline-rich diets could provide health benefits (read more  at: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3195546/).

Q: What are the sources of ingredients in Daily Build?

A: The Genesis PURE Daily Build ingredients are sourced from high-quality suppliers in accordance with international trade regulations, processed in facilities that comply with current good manufacturing practices (GMP) standards for supplements, and tested to ensure they comply with the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) guidelines for purity. Please note the GMPs for dietary supplements are much higher and stricter than food GMPs.  In addition, our quality team performs regular audits of all our manufacturers to ensure they continue to meet our requirements.

It’s a joint effort

1458310433_1That is … your body and Organic Sulfur working together!

Sulfur. It’s the fourth most abundant mineral found in the body, and something we need in larger amounts — yet the human body can’t make it. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is a naturally occurring, 99.9% pure dietary form of sulfur.

Organic Sulfur is functionally important to more than 150 compounds in the body. This includes the making of collagen, the main supportive protein of tendons, cartilage, connective tissue, and bone. Collagen is also important for healthy skin, hair, and nails.

  • Non–GMO
  • 99.9% MSM crystals
  • Dairy–free
  • Vegan
  • Maintains healthy joints*
  • Improves flexibility and mobility*

Simple, easy, and delicious ways to enjoy Organic Sulfur crystals

  • Add to your morning smoothie.
  • Dissolve in coffee or hot tea.
  • Stir into superfruit or grapefruit juice.
  • Puree with sweet potato, cinnamon, honey, and coconut milk.
  • Blend with water, lemons, blueberries, and sugar.
  • Dissolve in a bowl of chicken soup or a cup of hot tea.

Set MSM in motion!

  • Take three capsules or mix one level teaspoon into warm water or drink of your choice to dissolve crystals and consume.
  • Take twice daily. Organic Sulfur works best when taken with meals.

Discover the C’ENCIA difference

CENCIA_Rendering Introducing C’ENCIA Revitalizing Serum — advanced skincare specifically developed to treat the visible signs of aging. This exclusive formula is the ideal combination of nature and science that is unlike any other product you’ll find on the market. It’s time to discover your youthful beauty!

Your skin deserves the best.

After all, it’s more than just a protective barrier; the skin is an organ that serves to control life’s valuable functions, such as regulating temperature, and contains receptors for tactile sensation, pain, and pressure. The function and appearance of your skin, just like the health of your other vital organs, correlates with lifestyle and dietary habits, as well as critical age-related factors.

Daily stressors, environmental aggressors, dietary choices, and others conspire to fight against and break down our outer defenses – biological processes that contribute to the visible signs of aging, such as sun damage, loss of hydration, fine lines and winkles, free radicals and loss of elasticity.

The function of our skin is also affected. Collagen is the most abundant protein, comprising about one-third of the protein in the human body, and is found in muscles, bones, tendons, and skin. Think of it as the “glue” that holds the body together, giving skin strength and elasticity, replacing dead skin cells.

The unique, anti-aging skincare formula found in C’ENCIA Revitalizing Serum combines key scientific ingredients, each included for its unique ability to uncover what years may have masked.

The proprietary formula includes: 

  • Spider-Silk Protein – a special combination of 10 powerful amino acids, such as tyrosine, arginine, and glycine which work to moisturize and promote elasticity of the skin, leaving it feeling smooth and rejuvenated.
  • Cryoprotective Glycoprotein – works to help defend skin from extreme environmental conditions, such as cold weather and excessive dryness, and rejuvenates and revitalizes your skin to help maintain its youthful appearance.
  • Biological Growth Factors (BGF) – five unique oligo-peptides, vitamins and amino acids which have a synergistic effect on the skin. They help rejuvenate and revitalize the skin while giving the appearance of restore elasticity and a reduction in the visible signs of aging and wrinkles.
  • EGF Complex (Epidermal Growth Factor) – works naturally with your skin to help speed up cell turnover. Has been shown in clinical trials to increase skin tone, texture, elasticity, and firmness, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Cell Renewing Oligo-Peptides – these send signals to your cells to produce new collagen and other rejuvenating properties. Applied topically, they encourage the body to produce collagen.
  • X50 Dual-layer Molecular Technology targets cells and fibroblasts to help smooth and fight against the visible signs of aging, delivering key ingredients in the most effective way possible
  • Korean Ginseng Plant Stem Cells encourage production of collagen while promoting stronger elasticity of the skin, stimulates cell regeneration and contains antioxidant enzymes, which help fight against free radical damage.
  • Absolutely no parabens, phthalates, sulfates, or mineral oils.

C’ENCIA works in combination with your current skin care routine. For a more targeted approach, use with other Genesis PURE™ products, including C’VOSA skincare.

C’ENCIA is making a difference!

“C’ENCIA has taken my skin to a level I didn’t know existed!  I look forward to the feeling of silk-like C’ENCIA on my skin each morning and night, knowing that my skin will be more radiant, skin tone will exhibit evenness and I can say goodbye to large pores.  Amazing results, thanks to a clean, safe product that is the perfect blend of nature and science.” – Taryn Leiker

“After using C’ENCIA for three short weeks, morning and night, the difference in my skin tone, evenness and the disappearance of fine lines was not just noticeable to me, but also to others. It has given me a confidence in my skin that I never had before.” – Heather Burnett

“I’ve been using the new C’ENCIA product faithfully for about eight or nine weeks now, and I’m thrilled with the results.  Using one or two “pumps” each morning and evening has made a visible difference in not only fine lines, but also in my skin tone and texture.  I haven’t had the usual skin issues that I’ve been plagued with in past years, and I know I look younger, but also healthier.  My wife has always been blessed with great skin, but she loves C’ENCIA for the way it makes her skin feel.  The science of C’ENCIA works for both of us!  We love it.” – Lloyd Davis

 

You asked, we answered!

ATEoftheWeek_0216 Q: I was looking at the Daily Build and I don’t see iron or silver listed in the ingredients. I’m curious as to why? Daily Build was promoted to us as having every mineral and trace mineral.

A: Our liquid Daily Build stands out because it contains unique Genesis PURE blends of superfruits, greens, sea vegetables and botanicals. These blends provide a wide range of phytonutrients. Our products do not have every mineral that humans could consume.  But the Daily Build is loaded with 23 essential vitamins and minerals, which offer a unique role in maintaining health. Silver was not included because most of our IBOs take our Genesis PURE Silver product. Our Daily Build gives people the opportunity to have a substantial liquid vitamin if they are on iron restricted diets due to medical interactions or conditions like hemochromatosis.  In addition, some research suggests men and postmenopausal women should avoid multivitamins with 18mg of iron or higher. As products are reformulated, we will reevaluate the addition of iron in this product.

Q: Our bottle of Organic Sulfur has a manufacturing date on it of July 2014.  Does it ever expire?

A: Products should be consumed within two years of their MFG date for optimal nutrition. Your sulfur with a MFG of July 2014 should be consumed by July 2016. If your product has been properly stored with intact seals then it is safe to consume, even if it is slightly after the July date. But please note that the flavor and other sensory attributes of the products may change if they are consumed outside of its intended shelf life.

 

Make every bite count

NutritionBlog_0316 If I had to choose one word to describe Genesis PURE’s mission, it would be “nutrition”.  After a century (at least) of cultural obsession and hype-filled argument surrounding the concept of nutrition, it’s helpful to remember the basics. I like Merriam-Webster’s definition the best:  “The process of eating the right kind of food so you can grow properly and be healthy.”

We all understand “the process of eating”: food on fork into mouth, chew and swallow. I think we have difficulty understanding what should be on the fork and what happens after we chew and swallow the food.

 What is on the fork?

Referencing the above definition, nutrition means eating “the right kind of food”. What does this mean? In the whirlwind of Paleo, vegan, raw vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free, autoimmune, and the standard American diet options, it’s not surprising why so many of us are confused as to what is “right”. Having all of these choices is intimidating and can lead to no change at all. So where do we begin?

What happens after we chew and swallow?

 We must understand the macronutrients, protein, carbohydrates and fats — the basic building blocks and why they are important for the function of our bodies. Suggested proportions exist; however, you must learn the proportions your body needs to support your current activity level and achieve future wellness goals. It is important to understand that although some may choose to be vegetarian, plants contain protein too. And the last I checked, buffalo are not carnivores.

Macronutrients:

  • Protein is found throughout the body in muscle, bone, skin, and hair to name a few. Protein is involved in many biochemical processes that power reactions at the cellular level and thus is essential for life. Protein helps to balance blood sugars. In the United States, the recommended daily allowance of protein is 46 grams per day for women over 19 years of age, and 56 grams per day for men over 19 years of age. (1)
  • Carbohydrates provide the body with glucose which is converted to energy through biochemical processes in the body. Carbohydrates have been classified into high-glycemic and low-glycemic as it affects the blood sugar in the body, suggesting it is the quality of the carbohydrate that matters most. Carbohydrate sources from unprocessed or minimally processed whole grains, vegetables, fruits and beans provide vitamins, minerals, fiber and many phytonutrients. Highly processed simple carbohydrates from refined sugars, white bread and soda will provide immediate energy source at the expense of unbalanced blood sugars. Excess carbohydrates will be stored as glycogen in the liver and when the max of glycogen storage has been reached the excess will be stored in adipose (fat) tissue. Both are designs for energy sources during a time of need for the body.
  • Fat is nutritionally known as fatty acids (not the same as adipose). Fats are essential for the cell membrane function of the brain, the eye, and many nerves in the body. Fats are required for the transport of Vitamins A, C, D, E and K. Cholesterol is a fatty acid present in all cell membranes. In the healthy body, approximately 80 percent of total body cholesterol is manufactured in the liver and 20 percent is derived from the diet. (2) Manufacturers replace fats often with sugar or other starches to achieve a “low fat” classification. More important than adopting a “low fat” approach is choosing the preferred “good” sources of fatty acids from poly- and mono-unsaturated sources such as nuts, seeds, fish, and olive oil. Avoid the “bad” trans-fats altogether and limit saturated fats for optimal health.

“…so you can grow properly and be healthy”.

Let’s examine this last part of the definition. My translation is, “so you can balance the physiological processes of growth, metabolism and repair.” A balanced body will provide a well-functioning machine.

There is not time nor the space here to discuss the hundreds if not thousands of critical vitamins and minerals required by the body to function. Unfortunately, our current diets do not provide all of them which is where supplements may be used to fill in these gaps. One of my favorite studies from the Journal of Clinical Nutrition (3) studied the diets of people who use supplements. They found the primary reasons for using supplements were for overall health and wellness as well as to fill nutrient gaps in the diet. The study also found that supplement users do not use these products as a license to slack off on eating right or exercising, but instead are health conscious individuals trying to do all of the right things to be healthy.

A passion for nutrition.

As a physician and mother, I have developed a passion for nutrition through the years of caring for myself and my family. I did not have a lot of nutrition classes during my medical education; therefore, I read extensively about it and applied what I learned. I found that what I put on my fork as well as how I managed my stress made more of a difference in my wellness goals than how many hours I spent in the gym.

My hope is that something in these few paragraphs will encourage each of you to look at what is on your fork and view it as your single most powerful way to transform your body inside and out. It is your choice what to put or not put into your body. I challenge you to respect yourself and your future enough to make every bite count. You deserve so much more than average. You deserve the best. Stop dreaming about it and make it happen.
