Looking back, looking forward

Cheers to a brand new year and more opportunities for us to make a difference in the world. Before we dive any further into 2018, let’s take just a moment to look back on what an incredible year our PURE family had in 2017. We made some revolutionary accomplishments and achievements — chapters of our PURE story that are certainly worth remembering.

We would be remiss not to take the time to thank all of YOU for your love, dedication and partnership. Because of your tremendous efforts, PURE continues to move forward blessing more lives than ever before.

Here are some of the highlights from 2017 that make us so very proud.

  • We are PURE: People United Reaching Everyone. Probably the most important thing we did was introduce our new corporate brand and logo — a nod to our progressive spirit and our commitment to delivering unmatched products and opportunity.
  • GPS — before, during and after workouts. We revamped our GPS sports performance line of products giving them new names and a sensible way to incorporate them into your workouts.
  • New products — seven to be exact! CalciuMK+, Matcha Vegan Shake meal replacement, MelaTrim Sleep & Weight-Loss Support, ENERGY Variety Pack, Ciello Advanced Skincare, a reformulated Daily Build Liquid and the H20 Filtration System. We also introduced a new, easy twist-off cap to our Superfruit bottles.
  • PURE Rank Bonus. We launched this successful program to reward you for your efforts. Beginning at the rank of Platinum Director, awards range from $1,000 USD all the way to an amazing $250,000 USD!* The momentum this program has brought has been unprecedented.
  • We traveled the world. We basked in the Bahamian sun on the Seas Your Future cruise. We received expert training at the Be Fearless event in Branson, Missouri. We celebrated our emerging leaders, while riding the mechanical bull at Billy Bob’s, during an event right here in Texas. In September, we experienced the rich history, food and architecture of Barcelona and Madrid, Spain. Revisit the photos from these trips and events on our Facebook page.
  • Rally28 weight-loss system. Leaders took to the road on our Rally28 Take a Turn tour visiting people in more than ten states. People everywhere are seeing incredible results from this proven weight-loss system.
  • Global Whole Health Day. We designated this special day to commemorate the beginning of PURE: People United Reaching Everyone. Everyone was encouraged to share their PURE stories. This year, we will celebrate on August 8, 2018.
  • Mobile. We introduced Purity, a digital personal assistant that helps new Independent Business Owners (IBOs) get their business off and running. We also added new Quick Enrollment links. Download the app, available in the App Store℠ or Google Play™ online stores.
  • LIVE PURE PROJECT. We supported global relief efforts by delivering our H20 Filtration System to those in need of clean drinking water. To assist in relief efforts, PURE will give a non-tax-deductible donation through their Live PURE Project, which will purchase one water filtration bottle for every bottle system that is purchased. Excludes pack purchases. Learn more.

2018 is already off to a great start. Stay tuned for more wonderful announcements!

Dear future/healthier self …

First, I want you to know how proud I am of you for making some really good choices this past year. You exercised when you could, you ate healthier, and you made an effort to sleep more. You made some bad choices, too, and that’s okay. I know how hard it is between work, stress, money, other people – things just get in the way of your goals. I get it.

We’re at the end of 2017 and you’re going to get another chance in the New Year to really pursue wellness like you’ve never done before. I want you to be honest with yourself and the people around you. This is your life and your health. I want you to give it your all the next 365 days to live your heathiest life ever. You can do this!

Keep this letter close at hand to reference when you get stuck or fall short. These reminders will get you back on track to living a lifestyle of Whole Health. When you think about it, 365 days really isn’t that long; this past year sure flew by. Imagine how great you’ll feel and how different you’ll look on December 31, 2018. Looks pretty good, right?

You might be thinking that things look pretty good right now. Maybe so. But, I think you can make some changes in the New Year that will make an even bigger difference. Again, read over the following recommendations and see where you’ve fallen short in the past and where you can focus more effort.

  • Sleep at least 8 hours a night. Get yourself into a good routine.
  • Eat more fruits and vegetables. Have at least one apple every day. Munch on carrots at work. Incorporate more products by PURE into your daily routine.
  • Focus on the simpler things; they matter the most. Keep love in your heart and make an effort to pay that love forward to those around you.
  • Exercise at least three times a week. Take walks. Go that Zumba or weight-lifting class. Take care of your body by squatting to pick up something heavy. Keep track and watch your progress. Take part in Rally28.
  • Do things you love, including travel. You don’t have to go far. Simply visit places that inspire you. New experiences are refreshing and healthy. Work hard to take part in a PURE Incentive trip.
  • Take a class at your local community college. What is your passion? Writing, music, art, psychology? Read a book a month. Learn something new. Educate yourself on products by PURE. Visit our blog, our website, and listen to our podcasts. There’s a wealth of knowledge out there.
  • Give back however small. Helping others is one of life’s greatest gifts and can help make others’ lives healthier, too. Introduce someone to PURE. Transform lives with your purchase of an H20 Filtration System.
  • Take time for yourself. The more tired you are, the harder it will be to take care of yourself. And, you can’t help others unless you are your best.
  • Laugh and smile! Read some humor, watch funny videos, listen to children tell jokes. Laughter really is the best medicine.
  • Be grateful for what you have. There is too much sadness and hatred in this world. You have so much to be thankful for and you can share that with others.
  • There is no room for regrets, something which brings on emotional pain. Everyone makes mistakes, but everything happens for a reason. Let it be.
  • Live is too short to not enjoy every second of it. EVERY SECOND.

2018 is your year! I can’t wait to celebrate with you!

PURE Heroes can be found everywhere

”Heroism is not defined by what others think, but by the legacy you leave in your path.”  – PURE CEO Daren Hogge

PURE Heroes can be found everywhere, expressing their heroism with just simple, ordinary acts. They are the teachers who make a difference, they are your neighbors who are always there in a pinch, they are the veterans who fight for freedom, and they are the coworkers who pat you on the back.

Meet the Heroes of PURE – He’s the dad next door who wants to see his child grow up, he’s the athlete who desires to mentor youth, and he’s the husband who wants to celebrate his 70th wedding anniversary. They will touch your heart in these four inspirational videos.

They are heroes in our PURE community, representing those who honor, support and defend Whole Health. They all treasure the path they are on and are passionate and committed to create that same path for others. Independent Business Owners everywhere use their business to make the world a better place. They are passionate about sharing what it means to live a Whole Health lifestyle.

You are a PURE Hero – You are someone who is passionate and courageous and have a desire to reach for something bigger than yourself. Heroes leave fine examples that others want to follow, and no red cape is needed. You likely have met PURE Heroes in your own life.

Share your hero story in the comments below. How are you, or someone you know, making an impact in the lives of others? We want to meet another hero!

Together, we are People United Reaching Everyone.

There’s a real need for supplementation

We all know the importance that vitamins and minerals play in our health. Vitamins are essential for growth, development, and normal cell function. Minerals are important for building bones, making hormones, and regulating the heartbeat. You would think that eating a variety of foods would meet all of your nutritional needs. Well, that’s not always the case. Americans, in particular, lack the recommended amount of vitamins and minerals they need.

There are many reasons for nutritional deficiencies: genetically modified foods, deficient soil, the shipping, processing and cooking of foods, poor digestion, environmental factors (pollution, water, etc.), medications, and more. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, 43 different vegetables and fruits have declined in protein, calcium, phosphorus, iron, riboflavin (vitamin B12), and vitamin C over the past half century.1

Studies show…

The consumption of vitamins A, C, D and E is inadequate in 25-70% of the U.S. population. Americans are also 38% deficient in calcium, 45% deficient in magnesium, and 97% deficient in potassium.2

 To make matters worse, Americans exceed the recommendations for sodium, saturated fats, refined grains, solid fats and added sugars. All of this can lead to chronic disease, such as high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and various forms of cancer.

The American Cancer Society estimates that 30% of deaths are related to obesity, lack of activity and poor nutrition.3

What are we to do?

 Eat a healthy diet, exercise, get adequate sleep, and choose a daily multivitamin supplement. Overall, Americans should increase their consumption of foods rich in vitamins A, C, D and E as well as folate, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and fiber.

Two things I want to highlight are vitamin D and fiber, both essential to overall health.

Vitamin D is critical for bone health, muscle strength, immune function, and the reduction of inflammation. It promotes calcium absorption in the gut. The recommended daily allowance of vitamin D is 600 IU and yet the average intake is 156-404 IU.4 Without sufficient vitamin D, bones can become thin and brittle. Together with calcium, vitamin D also helps protect older adults from osteoporosis.

Fiber is critical to better health for blood sugar control, improved digestive health, weight loss, lowered risk of heart disease and diabetes, and more. Most Americans are not getting enough. Fiber is found in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes. It helps relieve constipation, helps you maintain a healthy weight, and lowers the risk of diabetes and heart disease.

Let your health care providers (including doctors, pharmacists, and dietitians) know which dietary supplements you’re taking so that you can discuss what’s best for your overall health, and avoid any drug-nutrient interactions. Avoid supplements with sweeteners, colors, artificial flavors, preservatives, or fillers.

Please note that dietary supplements are products intended to supplement the diet. They are not drugs and, therefore, are not intended to treat, diagnose, mitigate, prevent, or cure diseases.

People are talking about Rally28!

Let’s face it, losing weight and breaking bad habits are hard to do. But, I’m sure you can agree that having a “buddy” can help you stay motivated when it comes to exercising and eating healthy. That special friend or family member might be all it takes to keep you focused on your journey to Whole Health.

You’ll definitely find that support with PURE’s Rally28 program. We’re seeing it happen here in our PURE corporate community, and among our members and Independent Business Owners (IBOs) out there! You’ll find support in our Facebook community as well. Consider it your accountability group where you can find encouragement, stay focused, achieve your goals, and most importantly … have fun!

See what others are saying about the transformative power of Rally28

“I am so fired up about the lifestyle changing nutritional system called Rally 28.  My wife, Jana, and I believe in healthy living and in the power of proper nutrition, rest, hydration and exercise. The first few days were the toughest because of the bad habits we had let set in and the sugar cravings that often ruled our food choices throughout the day. But within a few days we were loving the process.  And our results were UNBELIEVABLE!” – IBO Doug Young

“… On Rally28, I began feeling and seeing results within 10 days. I still have some work to do which is why I will continue using Rally28 until I have achieved my goal. Wonderful program! Even if you are already in shape, I would encourage everyone to try this program. I have not felt so invigorated in years!” – IBO Lyndle Spencer

“I have been able to lose weight every week since my weight loss journey started in November 2016. Since then I’ve lost 75 pounds. I still have a lot to lose but with all your products, it’s given me an edge that I haven’t had ever. My weight has been up and down all my life. My goal is to get it off and keep it off.” – IBO Carol Gardner

“I always feel so much better when I am eating good food. This program was easy to follow and had a step-by-step process.” – IBO Jill Parton

“…I highly recommend Rally28 and strongly emphasize the importance of appropriate physical activity along with the Rally28 products. Muscle weighs more than fat but a toned and healthier body is far more valuable than a lighter, flabby, saggy body. My goal was to improve my health by toning my body … and I achieved that. I will continue to follow Rally28, as well as exercise, to further improve my health. If I can do it, so can you. Forget coulda, shoulda, woulda. I did!” – IBO Angela Johnson

“I needed to lose weight! I have done Rally28 before. I used to weigh 245 pounds! I knew that even at 225 pounds, I was still overweight. I was often tired and it was difficult to do simple tasks. I wanted to do Rally28 not only for me but for my family, too! I want to be able to run around and participate in activities with them without being exhausted. I want to be able to push our son and do races as we used to. My wife rallied with me. People started noticing my weight loss and that encouraged me to keep going. As I saw the numbers dropping on the scale, I said I can keep this going. The Rally has a great system with great products that work! I want to thank PURE for giving me and my family all the products we need to lead a healthier life! And yes, everyone in my family consumes the products!” – IBO Tony Rebimbas
