ATEoftheWeek_0216 Q: Do Genesis PURE superfruits have any effect on hormones ?

A: None of the ingredients in superfruits are known to effect the hormonal balance within your body.  Nonetheless, always consult your doctor before beginning any new Genesis PURE product.   Many people enjoy our superfruits as they utilize herbs for overall wellness. Due to strict FDA rules and guidelines, the Genesis PURE products are not intended to treat or cure any disease or conditions including the balancing of hormones.

Q: What essential oil can I use to make a hand sanitizer?

A: Making natural household products with essential oils is a great idea. Genesis PURE Tea tree essential oil contains naturally-occurring compounds known for topical cleansing. You can find recipes using Genesis PURE Essential Oils here: http://www.genesispure.com/resources.

Q: Do Genesis PURE products expire?

A: There are many factors which play into how long a product lasts, including proper handling and storage of product. Products should be consumed within two years of their manufacture date for optimal flavor and nutrition. If your products have been properly stored with intact seals then it is safe to consume them even if it is two years after the manufacture date. Please note that the flavor and other sensory attributes of the products may change if they are consumed outside of their intended shelf lives. Please read each label for storage and usage directions. If your products have been properly stored with intact seals then it is safe to consume them. Once opened, you should refrigerate and consume products within 45 days.

Hats off to the Whole Health chef

culinarians_0716 Today, July 25, is National Culinarians Day. It’s a special day set aside to honor all chefs and cooks and to show our appreciation for their talent to turn ordinary ingredients into delicious, healthy meals.

Virginia Woolf once said, “One cannot think well, love well and sleep well, if one has not dined well.”  This rings so true to us at Genesis PURE. We believe that without proper nutrition, our bodies cannot function the way they were made to. It’s also important to recognize our nation’s rising obesity rate and our obsession with fast food. We all get caught up in the busyness of life and eating healthy often turns into a run to the closest take out—actions that neglect wholesome ingredients and the exceptional art of cooking.

When you compare our culture with others, it’s obvious that we aren’t very mindful about our food. The French spend hours a day going to different markets to find the freshest ingredients. The Italians enjoy preparing and sharing their meals with family at the dinner table.  Eating in other cultures is a social activity, done slowly and not on the run.

When was the last time you made a great meal? What did you make? Usually, what someone wants to cook and eat is representative of their life experiences, people of different cultures they’ve met, what they’ve learned and where they’ve traveled.

Now you’re cooking

Of all the things we can do for our health, being mindful about what we eat and connecting with our food matters. This means making it ourselves and appreciating where the food came from. . Make your own food by gardening. Next time you go shopping think about the history behind certain food. Enjoy making a great recipe and sharing it with friends and family for dinner.

Cooking is an essential human skill. Pass it down to your children who may not understand nutrition or how to make healthy choices. Introduce them to foods from different cultures and different flavors. Teach them the consequences of eating poorly.

If you enjoy cooking, kudos to you. If cooking’s not your thing, these ideas might whet your appetite:

  1. Clear your kitchen counters. It’s easier to cook in an uncluttered area.
  2. Cook healthy foods. Use fresh ingredients and incorporate herbs and spices in your cooking.
  3. Grow your own food in a garden.
  4. Get the right utensils: a sharp knife is a must.
  5. Understand the journey your food took to get to your table.
  6. Start with foods you love.
  7. Make your presentation visual appealing
  8. Appreciate and really taste the food you’ve made. Eat slowly and while sitting down with others.
  9. Learn to love to love the cleanup.
  10. Collect your favorite recipes in a favorite notebook, drawer or elsewhere.

Visit www.genesispure.com/recipes to find recipes using Genesis PURE products, from entrees, sides, soups to drinks and dessert. There’s also a Cooking with Mila guide that walks you through ways to use this versatile product. Have a creative edge in the kitchen? Create your own recipes using Genesis PURE products and share them with our Facebook community.

Cheers to the cook

If you go out to eat today, make sure you thank the chef. If you eat at home, thank the cook!  If you are the cook, enjoy your time in the kitchen! You don’t have to be a renowned, but do try to use the healthiest ingredients. Even if you set the fire alarm off, you’re still cooking!

Now get into your kitchen and celebrate! Have your friends over and cook up a Whole Health storm.

ATEoftheWeek_0216 Q: With CardioClean being discontinued and having IBOs that have seen great results from taking this product, will there be an alternative or are you able to give suggestions as what GP products might be used in place of the CardioClean?

A: At this time, we do not have any plans on producing a product similar to CardioClean.  CardioClean contained B vitamins and folate as well as an antioxidant blend, among other ingredients. Our Daily Build product, a multivitamin with superfruits, greens, sea vegetables, and botanicals, is an excellent source of these ingredients. Mila contains the omega-3 fat ALA, or “alpha-linolenic acid,” which has been shown to support heart health; in fact, studies have illustrated improved cardiovascular health among those with a high intake of ALA-containing goods, like Mila.

Q: Which of our products have glucosamine in them?

A: None of our products contain glucosamine. However, in regards to joint health, L-carnitine is an ingredient in our Recovery and ENERGY products. L-carnitine is an amino acid or building block of proteins. It is important for muscle movement and other body processes. Organic Sulfur and Mangosteen are also beneficial for joint health support.

Q: My son is allergic to turmeric.  Can you tell me the name of your products that contain turmeric?

A: Our Daily Build does contain curcumin (an extract from turmeric). Both Liquid Cleanse and Greens have turmeric root in them.

When you build relationships, you build business

Networking_0616 Networking! It’s the end-all-be-all of business success, with the word “net” being the giveaway. Think of networking as your safety net in business. Envision casting a wide net to catch, or make, as many relationships as you can.

Networking involves engagement. When you are truly engaged, you build trust. It’s not easy, but when it’s done right, it’s RIGHT! First you have to identify those people who are going to boost your business. That can be done anywhere…at the bookstore, over coffee or lunch, at the dentist, or at the gym.

Once you’ve identified those key individuals, next comes building the relationships. And it’s all about communication and reciprocation. Get to understand their business. Start referring people to them, and you know what, they’ll start doing the same for you. And we all know that with referrals, comes new business. And who doesn’t want that?

So how do you become engaged?

  • Take time to meet regularly with people in your network.
  • Surround yourself with people who are passionate.
  • Educate them on the key aspects of your business, the products, etc.
  • Understand their business as well; learn about their products and services and use them.
  • Position yourself as an expert, an educator, but most importantly…a person
  • In the book, The Yes Factor, author Tonya Reiman says, “…the fastest way to someone’s heart is to express interest in them. Exude happiness and confidence…and your charm becomes contagious.”

If you are successful in developing strong relationships, your referral sources will help identify opportunities for you. They’ll do this because they know you would do the same for them. It’s reciprocal and it takes time, but it works.

In the book, Launching a Leadership Revolution, by Chris Brady and Orrin Woodward, the authors share that relationships are based on:

  • accepting people;
  • approving of people;
  • appreciating people;
  • seeing the good in people;
  • caring for people;
  • putting others first;
  • helping people accomplish goals;
  • …and living the “Golden Rule.”

Research has shown that reciprocal engagement in a business relationship results in higher productivity. According to Psychology Today, people who are actively engaged in a business environment are 43% more productive than those who are not. Furthermore, they say that engagement includes: regular dialogue, quality of relationship, and recognition.1

Take advantage of social media, if you don’t already. Have valuable conversations on Facebook. These platforms are great ways to build credibility and make new connections that can lead to business success.

Take your networking to new levels. Remember, engagement is much more than just a meeting. It’s about building long-term relationships. Be committed by keeping your relationships in front of your every day.

How do you, or how can you, support your networking partners and build your teams? How do you increase your referrals? We’d love to hear from you!

To market, to market to buy something fresh

FarmersMkt_0716 When was the last time you visited your local farmers’ market? If you’ve never been, you might be pleasantly surprised at what you’ll find! Buying your produce from a farmers’ market is not only a great way to eat healthier, but it can be an adventure for the whole family. More so, the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans is shifting to a plant-based diet centered on vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, making buying fresh and affordable produce from a farmers’ market a smart thing to do.

I recently visited a farmers’ market in my hometown of Frisco, Texas and they offered much more than fresh food. My daughter enjoyed educational programs, live music, face painting and more. It was a place to connect with the community, which is great for personal well-being. I also learned about upcoming events in the area. But the best part was that I brought home some fresh, just-picked fruits and vegetables.

The next time you’re heading out to a supermarket or big-box store to buy your groceries, think about why shopping at your local farmers’ market is a better idea.

  • Farm Fresh. The produce was likely picked that same morning compared to what you’ll find at a grocery store which is usually days old and has been packed in refrigerated trucks.
  • Affordable. For the sheer nutrition you get from farmers’ market produce compared to supermarket produce, it’s a really good value. Grocery stores tend to charge an arm and a leg for organic fruits and vegetables. At the farmer’s market, however, they are typically not much more expensive than conventionally grown produce, and the benefits to your health are likely to save you money on healthcare expenses over the long-term.
  • Organic. Many farmers participating in local farmer’s markets use organic methods to grow their produce. Organic farming is better for the soil, the environment, and your body.
  • Product knowledge. Chat with the farmers and learn how their produce was grown. They may even offer recipes and ways to prepare the food.
  • Ripe and tasty. If you’re willing, buy a peach from the grocery store and one from a farmers’ market. Taste both and see which one you like better. The farmers’ market peach was picked at the peak of ripeness and is incredibly fresh when it gets to you.
  • Supports local family farms. There’s no doubt local family farms have decreased in numbers over the years, succumbing to the high cost of running a farm and increasingly stiff competition from giant conglomerate-run farms that produce massive amounts of extremely cheap produce. Purchasing fruits and vegetables from farmers’ markets, however, supports local family farms, giving them the valuable capital they need to keep operating and providing consumers an alternative to mass-produced foods.
  • Conserves fuel. Many supermarkets receive their produce from hundreds or thousands of miles away. This involves the use of fossil fuels for shipping on refrigerated trucks and trains. Famers’ market produce doesn’t have far to get from the farm to your table, significantly reducing the use of fossil fuels. They also often operate in the open air and thus do not require electricity or heating.
  • Better for the environment. Along with conserving fossil fuels, small family farms produce less environmental waste in the form of carbon monoxide, pesticide use, and chemical fertilizers.
