Spring cleansing

When the weather warms up and the flowers start to bloom, it’s time for spring cleaning, or spring cleansing. We can finally open the windows and start dusting what has settled over the winter. Along with cleaning the house and swapping out my winter clothes for shorts and T-shirts, I want to be sure I cleanse my body, too.

We live in a toxic environment and our bodies are bombarded with chemicals and other potentially harmful substances on a daily basis. Toxins are found in the food we eat, the air we breathe, and the water we drink. They can also be found in commercially packaged products we buy and probably use every day. These toxins are causing us to be ill.

How do I know if I need to detox?

The following signs may indicate toxic overload in the body. If you suffer from any of these on a regular basis, you might try cleansing and see if they disappear.

  • Low energy
  • Constipation
  • Mental fog or trouble focusing
  • Having trouble losing weight
  • Intestinal or digestive upset

How do toxins enter the body?

Toxins enter the body through inhalation, through our gastrointestinal tract and through our skin.

Things like painting the house, varnishing the furniture, bringing home new furniture, dry cleaning, and cooking are all sources of many indoor air pollutants. Household cleaning products and toiletries contribute to indoor air toxins. We end up inhaling these toxins or absorbing them through our skin. Things like chemicals used in agriculture, fumes, air pollution and many other factors contribute to internal toxins. Consider using natural cleaning products or homemade remedies for cleaning the house.

When we drink caffeine and alcohol, we are ingesting toxins. When we eat bread, cheese and processed meat, we are ingesting salt, saturated fats, chemicals, hormones and antibiotics that all put a strain on the liver. These things can also cause high blood pressure, bloating and kidney problems. Medications, food additives, preservatives, food colorings, sweeteners and flavor enhancers contribute to internal toxins as well.

Detox naturally with HealthTrim® Cleanse.

A CORE4 product, HealthTrim Cleanse is a gentle, natural, non-fasting way to remove harmful toxins from the body through the seven channels of elimination: Blood, Colon, Kidney, Liver, Lung, Lymph, and Skin.

HealthTrim Cleanse includes unique ingredients that support each channel:

  • Blood is supported by Burdock (root), Red Clover (herb), and Dandelion (root & leaf).
  • Colon is supported by Cascara Sagrada (Bark), and Aloe Vera (leaf)
  • Kidney is supported by Dandelion (root & leaf)
  • Liver is supported by milk thistle (seed), artichoke (leaf), and garlic (bulb)
  • Lymph is supported by oregano oil
  • And finally, Skin is supported by dandelion (root & leaf) and green tea (leaf)

HealthTrim Cleanse also helps you meet and/or maintain your weight loss goals. You might be surprised with how much waste you have in your intestines. HealthTrim Cleanse supports clearing out your intestines. HealthTrim Cleanse is one of the products in PURE’s Rally28 weight-loss system, as it supports the elimination of these toxins from the body, promoting digestive health while maintaining normal intestinal microflora.

In addition to supplementing with HealthTrim Cleanse, be sure to eat a healthy diet, get regular cardiovascular exercise, hydrate with water, and eliminate alcohol, coffee, cigarettes, refined sugars and saturated fats, and increase digestive enzymes by eating fruits and vegetables.

Eating leafy greens and sprouted foods may help cleanse your body. Leafy greens, such as arugula, bok choy, endive, kale, lettuce, mustard greens, cabbage, spinach, Swiss chard and wild greens contain vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and chlorophyll, which help purify the blood and organs. Bulking up your diet with these foods can help your body. Consider adding several of these to your daily regimen to help create better health and vitality.

PURE’s Product Evolution: Continuing Advances in Quality and Efficacy

The Evolution of Science

Fully understanding human physiology, with its tremendous complexity, will certainly not occur at any point in our lifetime. In fact, to say that we have only “scratched the surface” probably overstates the current level of our knowledge in this area. It’s fair to say that as science continues to unlock new bits of information about the wondrous workings of the human body, we are provided a growing insight into the biological processes that make us fully functional and vital individuals.

Along with this evolving knowledge of human physiology comes the potential to improve our health. Applying each new scientific finding to the established base of knowledge and conventional wisdom moves us closer to the eradication of disease, the prevention of degenerative bodily processes, and the lifting of barriers to optimal performance.

PURE’s Product Philosophy

We are committed to providing excellent and effective products based on the best of science and nature. As science progresses, PURE relentlessly examines how best to use the new information to innovate as well as improve each of our products. Science does not stand still, and neither will we. Making the products more efficacious, aligned with Nature, and with quicker and more reliable results, is an ongoing endeavor and an important part of who we are at PURE.

PURE strives to create products that are natural, derived from natural sources, or made through natural processes, free of artificial dyes or colors, flavors, sweeteners, and other potentially harmful ingredients.

PURE continually evaluates our ingredients and makes improvements, following FDA guidelines, in order to provide you with safe, effective, top-of-the-line products to support your personal health goals. Year after year, PURE will continue to be at the forefront of nutritional science.

Ingredient spotlight: Melatonin

While you sleep, your body works the night shift. It’s time to build muscle cells, detoxify the body and support weight loss. The brain is busy too, producing a hormone called melatonin. This hormone has a big responsibility in helping to control your circadian rhythm, or internal clock, which regulates feelings of sleepiness and wakefulness.

Melatonin tells your brain when it is time to sleep. The amount of light you are exposed to and your circadian rhythm both influence how much melatonin your brain produces. This cycle is critical as your body needs adequate sleep for optimal well-being. If this cycle is not kept in balance, our body’s production of melatonin is disrupted.

Why is melatonin important?

I think we all know what disruption of sleep, or lack of sleep, feels like. Our mood is effected and we might find it hard to focus and concentrate.  A lack or absence of sleep affects you physically and emotionally. Sleep is critical in your journey to Whole Health.

Melatonin is necessary for adequate sleep. Melatonin slows your heart rate and your blood pressure falls. Melatonin aids the immune system, it helps eye function, it can reduce oxidative stress and protects against radiation.

A lack of melatonin can stress out our cells. If your body doesn’t relax during sleep, this can cause fatigue during the day. A disruption of melatonin has also been associated with the development of Alzheimer’s disease and even cancer.1

People who live close to the North Pole where there is 24 hours of daylight during their summers make little to no melatonin. They often experience irritability or restlessness. Some develop insomnia or a condition called hypomania, which is characterized by an increase in energy levels and a feeling of euphoria similar to bipolar disorder. These people are more prone to depression in the dark months.2

MelaTrim by PURE

MelaTrim sleep and weight-loss support, a HealthTrim® product, is a combination of herbs, amino acids, minerals and melatonin that together help the body get adequate sleep while also burning calories naturally. A Relaxation Blend of botanicals help the body relax, an Extended-Release Technology provides an initial dose of melatonin to help you fall asleep quickly then gradually delivers a second dose to help you stay asleep through the night, and a non-stimulating Metabolic Blend helps the body burn calories during sleep.*


  • Helps the body relax mentally and physically with a Relaxation Blend of botanicals, including magnesium, L-theanine, passionflower and chamomile*
  • Helps the body fall asleep, stay asleep and wake up refreshed with Extended-Release Technology that delivers melatonin in stages throughout the night*
  • Helps the body burn calories naturally while you sleep with a non-stimulating Metabolic-Boosting Pepper Blend*
  • Non-dairy, non-GMO and naturally gluten-free
  • No artificial colors, yeast, sugar or sweeteners, soy, wheat or preservatives
  • Vegetarian capsules
  • Made in a U.S. third-party-certified FDA GMP compliant facility

It’s important to note that sleep disturbances may not always be the cause of low melatonin. Side effects from medications and other illnesses might be the cause. Always consult your healthcare provider first before taking any supplements.




The art of GoYin bottle recycling

We recently asked our PURE Facebook community to share how they recycle their GoYin bottles.

We asked them to send us their photos. Check out these creative ideas, both decorative and functional, and pick your favorite.

A CORE4 product, GoYin is a great-tasting balancing blend of superfruits, herbs, and other fruits that have been traditionally used to help reduce the impact of stress on the body and mind while enhancing overall well-being.*


How would you recycle GoYin bottles, or any other PURE container? Send us your ideas and we just might post them!

PURE Ask the Expert questions and answers

At PURE: People United Reaching Everyone, we have an expert team that is dedicated to answering your product and nutrition questions.

Here are the most popular questions from the previous few weeks. You might find a topic related to a question you have.

Q: Does our Silver have colloidal in it?

A: PURE’s silver technology has taken colloidal silver and has turned it into the next generation of colloidal silver. Our Silver product incorporates a patented manufacturing technology to create an advanced nano-silver solution. Our Silver is easily absorbed and highly stable even outside of a glass container. It is also very safe, because unlike other silver products, it does not build up in the body. Research has shown it is excreted from the body within 24 hours making it a highly safe and effective way to gain the benefits of using Silver.

Q: Can you suggest recommendations on products that produce collagen?

A: MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), the main ingredient in Organic Sulfur, has been shown to support healthy joint function and mobility. How exactly MSM works is not known, but preclinical studies suggest it works by balancing inflammatory mediators. Some research also suggests the sulfur found in MSM can be incorporated into the connective tissue of the joints helping to maintain collagen integrity. Most published research on the benefits of MSM have used as much as 3g taken twice daily (6g/day total). To achieve this amount use 2 scoops daily by using one scoop in the morning and another in the evening, or take 6 capsules daily (3 in the morning and 3 in the evening).

Q: What product(s) help with hair growth?

A: PURE has not created a specific supplement for the benefit of maintaining healthy hair and growth; however, there are some essential vitamins, which may support normal, healthy hair. The B vitamin biotin, for example is often suggested for the benefit of the hair, skin, and nails. A lack of adequate biotin in the diet has been linked to minimized hair growth. Some case reports and a couple of smaller studies have shown an improvement in healthier-looking hair through the use of biotin supplementation. Daily Build liquid provides 300mcg (1000% DV) of biotin. While not the primary function of Organic Sulfur (MSM), sulfur is an important component of collagen production. Collagen also plays a role maintaining normal hair growth. Two smaller, preliminary studies have shown improvements in healthier-looking hair through the supplementation of MSM. Organic Sulfur may help support the maintenance of healthy hair.
