Can you name the biggest health-and-fitness trend to rule 2017?

2017_fitness-trends-blogEvery year, there are new trends in fitness and nutrition that take the world by storm. Last year it was coconut oil, juice cleanses, barre workouts, meditation, and bone broth, just to name a few. What will become mainstream in 2017?

Let’s look ahead. Have you ever heard of or taken a sound bath? Hint…there is no water involved.  A sound bath is a type of meditation that employs sound waves (more on that below). You will likely see these in 2017, along with wellness vacations, magnesium supplements and adaptogenic herbs.

The biggest trend of all?

Genesis PURE’s new Rally28™ weight-management system, of course! This easy, flexible, 28-day program helps you reach your weight-loss goals with products that feature Craving-Control Technology, help you burn fat and curb cravings, and help you power through fatigue. It has everything you need including a blender bottle so you can take your meals on the go, and a tape measure so you can track your results.

Participants everywhere are throwing their unhealthy habits into reverse and getting back on track to a lifestyle of Whole Health. They are learning the secret to a healthy lifestyle, from the help of Genesis PURE’s top-quality products, satisfying eats, tracking tools, and a supportive community.  Learn more here.

More trends you will see in 2017

  • Adaptogens. These are botanical compounds from nature that help the body handle stress and fight fatigue, slowly and gently. Much like a thermostat works to balance the temperature inside a home, adaptogens help balance the body’s adrenal system, which is in charge of managing the body’s response to stress and fatigue. Genesis PURE’s Moomiyo Edge, a product in the GPS line, combines moomiyo extract, an adaptogen, with an array of other adaptogens such as golden root, reishi, cordyceps and codonopsis to boost your workout performance and help improve recovery time.* Ginseng is also an adaptogen which is used in many Genesis PURE formulations. ENERGY contains American ginseng. ENERGY contains Indian ginseng, or Ashwagandha (an adaptogen). Daily Build, Fasting Solution and ENERGY contain Siberian ginseng.
  • The wellness vacation. These all-in-one vacation/spa/retreat/boot camps are a popular way to refresh the mind and body. Companies such as Well & Being are bringing customized fitness, nutrition, integrative medicine, mind-body therapies, and advanced skincare to luxury resorts. Even Marriott hotels offer amenities such as air purifiers, organic mattresses and posture-supportive flooring, for a minimal upgrade.1
  • Dream meditation. This new kind of meditation is all about training your brain to dream consciously. Dream Reality Cinema, is a company hoping to help teach us how to lucid dream (control exactly what happens in your dream). This new form promises to unlock information stored in the subconscious while helping with sleep and stress disorders.
  • Magnesium. Americans are deficient in magnesium which can cause negative side effects like muscle cramping and insomnia. Magnesium helps relax muscles for restful sleep and regulates blood pressure already in normal range.* A great way to get your magnesium is by taking Genesis PURE’s Coral Calcium liquid dietary supplement.
  • Sound Baths. This is a trendy form of meditation that utilizes sound waves to put the body into harmony. The vibrations from crystal bowls, which are “played” with a mallet in various patterns is thought to reduce anxiety, pain and aid sleep disorders.
  • Longevity Foods. This is a new name for superfoods. Things like black garlic, avocado oil, nutritional yeast, dragonfruit will make a big difference in diets everywhere. Black garlic has been aged and is loaded with more antioxidants the raw garlic. Avocado oil contains high concentrations of unsaturated fats and vitamin E. Nutritional yeast is packed with nutrition, particularly B-vitamins, folic acid, selenium, zinc, and protein. It is low in fat and contains no added sugars or preservatives. It tastes great on popcorn or added to soups, gravies, and sauces. Dragon fruit contains Vitamin C, phosphorus, calcium, fiber and antioxidants.
  • Boot camps. Getting a full-body training session in a team environment is really popular. Plus, you will meet like-minded people. When they see you are missing, it gives accountability a community vibe.

Do any of these inspire you to try something new? If there is a trend we did not mention and you would like to share, please do so.

One thing is for sure. These trends all point toward a shift to a healthier lifestyle, something important to all of us here at Genesis PURE. We believe that experiencing a life of Whole Health all comes down to the basics: getting proper nutrition, quality exercise and adequate sleep.

Making your 2017 New Year’s Resolution(s) Stick

resolutions2017_1216The year 2016 has flown by and I am ready for the excitement that 2017 will bring! I am carrying forward several accomplishments from the year: I took two great vacations, I made some new life-long friends, and I achieved a cycling personal record.

I usually start writing my resolutions list on January 1. I will likely include things like: Finish that novel; eat more salad; and, lose weight.

Research has shown that 45% of Americans will make a New Year’s resolution; some of the top ones include losing weight, getting organized, saving money, staying fit, learning a new skill, and enjoying life to the fullest.1

People who make resolutions are ten times more likely to retain their goals than people who don’t make resolutions. The end of every year is a great time to assess prior accomplishments, whether personal or professional, and plan for the coming year.

Here are some tips to help you stick with your resolution(s), and succeed, in 2017:

  1. Break it down: Don’t use the New Year to create a large bucket list of goals to accomplish, either personal or professional. You may have a big goal, but breaking it down into milestones will help keep your spirits up and easily see your own progress. For example, if you set a weight loss goal, exercise more, quit smoking, and manage your stress, chances are you will not meet those expectations set for yourself.  Trying to tackle too many goals at once can leave you overwhelmed and eventually abandoning all goals.  Instead pick one or two goals to manage at a time.
  2. Be Specific: Setting specific goals can lead to greater performance. If you want to lose weight, for example, change “I want to lose 20 pounds in 3 weeks,” to “I want to be able to do 100 pushups within 3 months,” or “I want to be able to complete a 5K in my hometown.”
  3. Find a partner: Share your weight loss goals with a family member and/or friend. Find a buddy with similar goals so you can motivate each other to stay on track. By asking for support, you’re able to strengthen your own resiliency.
  4. Don’t let the bumps in the road get you off track. Make sure you’re able to attach personal value to your goals and focus on progress each step of the way. Be sure to self-reflect throughout the year, not just on December 31. Ask yourself: Am I on track with my goals? What changes can help me achieve success? Are there other changes in my life I can tackle?
  5. Find a program that helps you stay on track. Genesis PURE’s new Rally28 weight-management system offers a simple, yet effective way to help you change your body and your life. A winning combination of Genesis PURE’s proprietary Craving-Control Technology and sustainable fat-burning ingredients support weight loss while you develop healthier habits for real, lasting results. Learn more at rally28.com.

Once you’ve accomplished your goals, be sure to check in periodically to ensure you don’t backtrack. I hope these guidelines can be put to good use and help you achieve your goals for 2017.

All of us at Genesis PURE wish you a New Year of Whole Health!

Start your day with new HealthTrim® PURE Café

coffeemug_blog_v2Not only does PURE Cafe wake you up, it slims you down with a balanced blend of botanicals, antioxidants, vitamins, and natural caffeine. It’s an ideal and convenient way to jump-start your weight-loss journey. PURE Cafe, as part of Genesis PURE’s HealthTrim® line of products, helps suppress appetite to limit the amount of calories you are eating. It helps speed up your body’s ability to burn fat while helping to increase the absorption of nutrient-rich foods.

Start every day with PURE Café, along with proper diet, quality sleep and regular exercise. It’s a simple way to jump-start your goals as you segue into Genesis PURE’s Rally28 weight-management system. Introducing PURE Café to your morning routine can help reduce cravings by suppressing the appetite without the addition of calories. Plus, you’ll love the distinctive mocha flavor.

Take a closer look at what makes up this rich formulation:

  • Garcinia cambogia is an herb found naturally in India, parts of Asia, and on the Pacific coast of South and Central America, all the way from Peru up to Mexico. Also known as Brindall berries, garcinia is believed to act as an appetite suppressant. Increased calorie burning and a suppressed appetite help prohibit the body from converting excess carbohydrates into stored body fat. In fact, garcinia cambogia can help increase your energy.
  • Piperine, also known by its trademarked name, BioPerine, is an extract derived from black pepper. It gives peppers their spicy taste. This extract has been found to increase the absorption of a variety of nutrients. According to an article published in the Journal of Ayruveda and Integrative Medicine in 2010, piperine was shown to increase the absorption of vitamin C, selenium, beta-carotene, vitamin A, vitamin B-6, and coenzyme Q.
  • B-vitamin complex is a combination of B6, B12, Riboflavin, Niacin and Thiamin, all responsible for protein metabolism and the healthy functioning of nerves and blood vessels. B vitamins also support energy and the breakdown of foods and carbohydrates.

In addition, PURE Café also:

  • Contains clinically supported amount of hydroxyl citric acid for maximum fat burning
  • Contains polyphenol-rich oolong tea for antioxidants and metabolic boosting
  • Is naturally sweetened with a hint of stevia
  • Contains 150 mg of naturally sourced caffeine
  • Contains clinically tested Piper nigrum for optimal absorption of key active ingredients
  • Contains other ingredients to support blood sugar level maintenance

My goal for doing Rally28 was to start eating healthy on a regular basis and it helped me do just that! Rally28 gave me the motivation to start planning my meals and snacks every day so I always had something good but healthy to eat and I was no longer tempted to hit the drive-thru. Rallying helped me learn how to make healthy eating my new lifestyle! –  Whitney H.

“I can’t say enough good things about Rally28.  I found the system to be educational and easy to follow. I lost five pounds and four inches, and I found that I had more energy. It’s now 90 days since I started and I am keeping the weight off. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone interested in weight management or just interested in applying Whole Health to their life. – Dave B.

“With help from Rally28, I lost 18 pounds and three inches from my stomach. What I love about Rally28 is that I am never hungry and I’m always energized.” – Darin B.

“I’ve been overweight all my life and fitness/nutrition was never a priority for me. Having tried many different weight-loss programs without much success, I accepted that I was “meant” to be overweight and out of shape. Like I’ve done every year, I made a promise to myself that 2016 was the year for real change and I knew Rally28 was what I needed to see long-term success…

The system is simple and gave me the structure I needed to implement a lifestyle change. While participating in Rally28, I joined a boot camp program. This combined with the Rally28 program has changed my life.  Over the past few months, I’ve experienced normal readings on lab work, I’ve run a ¼ mile without stopping, and I’m wearing clothes I’ve been saving for years. The scale says that I weigh less than I have in 10 years, but more importantly I am stronger and more motivated than ever!  I have a long Whole Health journey ahead of me but I know I will be successful with the help of Rally28 and support systems built into the program.”  – Trish T.

“Weight management is very personal but I believe everyone needs a ‘why’ and a ‘how’.  I’ve had my ‘why’ for a while and I found my ‘how’ with Rally28. I’ve been able to gain muscle mass and I’ve lost 18 pounds and 11.25 inches overall.  My confidence and energy levels are higher than they’ve ever been.  I continue to rally and have set several goals to reach before my 50th birthday in 2017.  I believe I will reach those goals before then, and will be able to maintain the results. Thanks, Genesis PURE!” – Nena S.

“Within the last year, before Rally 28, I had gained 40 pounds. I made great effort in following the program using the Rally28 Program Guide. It paid off in more ways than one. I lost 19 pounds during the 28 days and I kept with it after the four weeks. I am now 45 pounds lighter and have much more energy!” – Aaron O.

“Rally28 is amazing! I followed the instructions as outlined in the program. By eating six small meals a day, I was not hungry like I always had been on previous diets. I had the 360 Complete Cacao Shake for two of my daily meals, which made food prep for the three other meals so easy.   I started walking 30 minutes a day, building up to an hour every day.  In the first 28 days I lost 12 pounds. To date I have lost a total of 23 pounds.  This is a lifestyle, not a diet. I truly believe that is why I am having so much success.” – Lisa P.

Slow down, you’re eating too fast

mindful_eating_1016 We’ve got to make our delicious food last! You’re probably familiar with the phrase, “Stop and smell the roses.” Have you ever stopped to really savor your food? Eating slower and thinking about your food can help with weight problems and may even help some people make healthier choices.

Do you come home from work and head straight for the cupboard for a snack? Do you keep snacks at your desk and munch while surfing the Internet? We live hectic lifestyles making it hard to keep our bodies functioning and achieving a lifestyle of Whole Health. When you are eating mindlessly, it’s to lose attention to what we’re eating and why.

When we are mindful about our food, we engage all of our senses. We notice the smells, flavors, colors, sounds and textures. We chew slowly and eat without distractions, like reading or watching TV.  We are aware of what is on the table, what is going into your mouth, and how much you are eating. Being mindful of our emotions helps us recognize when we are eating because of anxiety or sadness. But what we probably need to do is talk to a friend, take a walk, play some music, take a warm bubble bath, or diffuse Genesis PURE’s Lavender Essential Oil to create a relaxing environment.

 There are other things we can do to increase mindfulness:

  • Set your kitchen timer to 20 minutes, and use that time to eat a normal-sized meal.
  • Try eating with your non-dominant hand; if you’re right handed, hold your fork in your left hand.
  • Take three deep breaths between bites.
  • Think about the production of your meal, from nature to farmer to grocery store.
  • Take small bites and chew slowly.
  • Before opening the fridge or cupboard, ask yourself if you are really hungry? Could you go for a walk instead, or read a book?
  • Reserve time for meals and stick to them.
  • Don’t skip meals.
  • Participate in Rally28, Genesis PURE’s premier weight-loss system offering a simple, yet effective way to help you change your body and your life. This winning combination of Genesis PURE’s proprietary Craving-Control Technology and sustainable fat-burning ingredients support weight loss while you develop healthier habits for real, lasting results.

How does mindful eating help solve weight issues?

The simple act of slowing down allows you to think first before you act, which gives you a chance to make a healthier choice. Many people who struggle with food react mindlessly to their thoughts and feelings. They are not fully aware that they’re eating because they are sad or anxious. They don’t pause to ask the question, “Am I really hungry?” They usually aren’t, but they are eating to appease the emotion. Being mindful empowers you to look for options that are healthier and work better for you.

Give your body what it needs to live a lifestyle of Whole Health. Genesis PURE is here to help.

You asked, we answered

ATEoftheWeek_0216Q: How do we know the body needs sulfur? How much sulfur does a person need to function properly?   How much sulfur does a person go through or lose in a day?

A: Sulfur is an essential nutrient obtained from soil that is required for plants to grow, but what about for humans? It can be obtained in the diet from sulfur-containing amino acids (SAAs) like methionine, cysteine, and taurine. These can be found in protein rich foods such as poultry, meat, fish, eggs, nuts, milk, legumes and cheese. The body does acquire some sulfur by consuming these foods. Some have suggested it is essential to human health; however, there is limited research in this area. The NIH’s US National Library of Medicine lists sulfur as a macromineral the body needs along with calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium and potassium, but there is currently no established RDA for sulfur. It is one of the most abundant minerals in the body, since it contains approximately 175g of sulfur behind calcium and phosphorus (~1400g and 850g respectively).

Q: What are the eight essential oils in Genesis PURE’s Boost8?

A: The eight essential oils in Boost are: Clove, Cinnamon, Frankincense, Rosemary, Basil, Bay Laurel Leaf, Bergamot, and Thyme.

Q: How many servings per day of Mila qualifies as “high intake of ALA”?

A: There isn’t an official RDA requirement for omega-3 fatty acids or ALA. The body can convert alpha linolenic acid (ALA) to omega-3 fatty acids, which have various benefits to the body. One serving of Mila provides 3g (3,000mg) of ALA. The FDA recently established an amount of ALA that constitutes the allowed use of a “high source” claim.  This amount is > 320mg per serving.  One daily serving or even half a serving of Mila would provide more than sufficient ALA to meet the FDA’s standard. It actually offers more than 9 times this amount; however, Genesis Pure recommends one serving daily in order to derive the most benefits from this incredible product.
