Getting to know Mark and Kaedi Worley

When Independent Business Owners (IBOs) Mark and Kaedi Worley were introduced to the products and opportunity offered by PURE, they knew they had found something special! Their mission is to show families a new, better “normal.” Better health. Better finances. Better time with loved ones. Better way of life.

Before joining PURE, Mark and Kaedi owned a construction and landscape business for 20 years. They have always been entrepreneurs, highly driven who enjoy traveling, hunting, fishing, attending their children’s sports and participating in church activities in their hometown of Bixby, Oklahoma.

Before finding PURE they weren’t looking for a business opportunity, rather they were looking for a healthy change.

In 2015, their daughters’ voice coach asked them to watch a video. At that time, they considered themselves a typical American family. They had five busy teenagers, three who were competitive athletes. They were exhausted, busy, battling weight gain and unexpected expenses. They were caffeine addicted and trying to keep up with the daily grind. Their business controlled their time and finances.

Shortly after joining PURE, they made their first profit.** In about a month of taking the products and living a healthier lifestyle, Kaedi experienced weight loss.*

“In the landscape industry, when it rains for five straight weeks, you’re grateful for “side” income. Nothing held us back,” said Kaedi.

As Ruby Executive IBOs, the Worleys have made PURE their full-time focus. They are building a team across the country and it’s spreading to other continents. Their passion lies in sharing the products and opportunity with others so that they too may focus on their families and not let money make the decisions anymore.

“Our biggest “aha” moment was realizing that our dreams really could come true,” said Mark. “We got familiar with the simplicity of the system and discovered that we could live on our time and still make a significant income.  We could help people when we wanted not when we could. The products and opportunity offered by PURE fuel us to bring the gift of freedom to other people like us.”

When asked how they motivate each other, Kaedi said, “We push ourselves through the tough times because we are both athletes and know that what challenges you changes you. We are relentless in achieving our goals. There’s growth in sticking it out.”

The experiences relayed by Mark and Kaedi Worley are represented as their personal real life story as individuals who use our products; however, individual results may vary. We do not claim, nor should the reader assume, that any individual experience recounted here are typical or representative of what any other consumer might experience. This testimonial is not necessarily representative of what anyone else using our products may experience. Successful weight loss will consist of dietary modification and regular physical activity.

Happy Hand Hygiene Day!

Ah yes, the act of washing our hands. We either do it or we don’t, depending on whether we’re in a hurry or have adequate soap and warm water, right? Washing hands is one of the best ways to defend against sickness and spread germs, so I hope you do take the time to scrub up.

In a 2018 survey conducted by the Bradley Corporation, only two-thirds of 1,035 adults across the U.S. said they “always” wash their hands after using a public restroom.1 Did you hear the joke about the toilet? Never mind, it’s too dirty!

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, hand washing can prevent about 30 percent of diarrhea-related sicknesses and about 20 percent of respiratory infections.Let’s face it, germs are everywhere. In a typical day, your hands go from the gas nozzle to the steering wheel to your keyboard. You might scratch your nose, hold your coffee cup, answer your cell phone, and open doors. How often do you clean your steering wheel or keyboard? Probably not often enough. Oh, and there’s the credit card machines that ask if you want cash back. How many fingers touch those buttons? Gross!

Yes, washing hands is necessary, and really simple. But did you know that to effectively wash and kill the germs, you should use soap and rub hands for 15 to 20 seconds? That’s the same amount of time it takes to sing “Happy Birthday” twice.

What should you do if you don’t have soap and clean water?

It happens to the best of us! Alcohol-based sanitizers reduce the number of germs on your skin, but they are very drying. We have a better solution! It’s called Skin Defense, and it’s a safe and natural solution.

A spray of Skin Defense on your hands targets external bacteria while providing immediate care and hydration for your skin. The active ingredient, hypochlorous acid (HOCI), also helps the body manage minor wounds without harming delicate cells that aid in recovery.

Play defense at home, at work or in the gym.

Use Skin Defense spray daily to protect and defend the skin on contact. HOCI is a naturally occurring chemical that our white blood cells produce every day to fight off bacteria, superbugs and viruses.

  • HOCI is effective in killing bacteria, viruses and fungi
  • Higher concentration of HOCI than similar products
  • Attacks bacteria, viruses, fungi, and infections on the spot
  • Non-toxic, non-irritant, non-sensitizing
  • Antibiotic-free, steroid-free, alcohol-free
  • All natural; environmentally safe
  • FDA cleared

Skin Defense is non-alcoholic so it won’t dry your hands like hand sanitizers do. It’s also safe for the entire family!

May the CORE4 be with you

Today, May 4, is National Star Wars Day and fans everywhere are celebrating.

There are many lessons to be learned from the Star Wars saga. Some of these lessons can be applied to our CORE4 products, which we like to celebrate here at PURE.

Wisdom from the Galaxy:

Teamwork — We know that Star Wars is all about teamwork! For every situation, there is a squadron of heroes working together to overcome. Our CORE4 products represent teamwork at its best. Daily Build, GoYin, HealthTrim® Cleanse and ENERGY (see below) work together to provide a strong foundation for our bodies.*

The Force — This is what gives a Jedi his power. It’s an energy field created by all living things, surrounding and penetrating us. It binds the galaxy together. The Padawans strive to work with the Force to achieve personal success. Only when they connect are they able to harness their skills and make a difference. Just like the Force, CORE4 gives us that edge our bodies crave and deserve. We, too, work with CORE4 to achieve personal success.

Actions — They define our legacy. Yoda wouldn’t train Luke and help him raise an X-Wing out of the swamp if he knew it wouldn’t come to anything. So, why not give your body the best it deserves with key ingredients from CORE4? They will have an impact in the long run.

Patience — Sometimes progress happens slowly and may feel like you’re frozen in carbonite. When taking a supplement, be patient and consistent. Know that something great is happening inside of your body. Taking the products consistently goes a long way.

We think a Jedi Master would approve of our CORE4 products. No matter what the situation, CORE4 is always on your side, ready to maximize you.

May the CORE4 be with you.

Set the stage for optimal wellness with CORE4, and fuel your body with the key nutrients needed to maximize you!*

  • Daily Build. More than a multi with 23 essential vitamins and minerals, and then some. Includes 8 proprietary blends: Neuroprotective, Phyto-Vegetable, Phyto-Fruit, Bio-Protection, Amino Acid, Trace Mineral, Superfruit Juice, and

After you’ve built, balanced, and cleansed, clear the mental fog with ENERGY, the perfect alternative to sugar-laden energy drinks.

What does CORE4 mean to you?

Add these four products to your daily regimen, have fun, and may the CORE4 be with you!

Recycling on Earth Day and every day

Here at PURE we are proud to celebrate Earth Day on April 22. Did you know that each year, nearly 29 million tons of plastic end up in landfills across America? Are you doing your part to recycle every day?

Look at the bottom of any PURE container or bottle and you’ll see the recycling logo. When you’ve used all the product, simply rinse out the remnants, then place the container among the rest of your plastics, cans and bottles you’re taking to the curb.

You can also upcycle your containers! Here are some creative ways to find new uses for empty containers and bottles. Have fun with these while, at the same time, making the planet a cleaner place.

  • Organize your junk drawer or craft space. The GPS Adapt bottle is small enough to hold glitter or sequins. It can also hold push pins, rubber bands, pencil erasers and other small gadgets.
  • Organize a tool box. The garage can quickly become a storage mess; but your toolbox doesn’t have to be. Our containers are great to hold loose nails, screws, hex nuts, etc. so you’re ready for that next project! Simply label the container with a Sharpie and voila.
  • Create a coin holder for your vehicle.
  • Loose tea and spices in your kitchen? Stick them into an ENERGY tub for a great airtight solution.
  • Make mini ice packs, or any size for that matter. Just fill a container with water, freeze and you’re ready for those impromptu picnics or camping trips. Also great for keeping your frozen items cold while coming home from the grocery store.
  • Store batteries, etc. Try screwing used containers, like Immune6, to a shelf to create hanging storage for batteries, screws, nails, nuts and bolts, etc.
  • No more missing game pieces, or Legos. Use containers to store small pieces from your kids’ games.
  • Keep matches dry for camping. Just glue a piece of sandpaper to the lid and you’re ready to go.
  • Keep jewelry safely stored while traveling.
  • Make a homemade mini first-aid kit.
  • Create a memory jar with a larger container, like Organic Sulfur. Jot down memories on paper that you can read during special moments or holidays.
  • Make a hide-a-key! Simply put your key in a used container and glue the cap to a rock or a pine cone.

What do you do with your empty PURE containers? Please share with us.

Getting to know IBO Lynette Keys

Brent and Lynette have been Independent Business Owners (IBOs) with PURE since 2012. They live in Oklahoma. Brent is a petroleum engineer and Lynette is an oncology nurse and an author of two medical books. Lynette also has a secondary bachelor’s degree in physiology with a minor in biochemistry.

When introduced to PURE, Brent and Lynette were both working full-time jobs, but did not have the time to enjoy building their dream. They realized that their priorities were in the wrong order. They prayed for something else that would allow them to make a difference in their lives, the lives of their children and the lives of the people around them.

“We weren’t praying for change, but for peace,” said Lynette. “We prayed that we were doing the right things that would secure a strong future for our family.  PURE was the blessing that we had been looking for.”

In less than seven months they hit Diamond Executive rank.** Lynette retired from her full-time practice while earning more money than her regular job while working less than a part-time job all from the comforts of home.** She lost 25 pounds and her husband lost 35 pounds.* Their son joined PURE and hit Platinum Director when he was just 19 years old. They have traveled the world and have the freedom to spend time with their children. They are healthy and debt-free.

Lynette believes to succeed with PURE you have to have a plan, and without a plan a dream is only a wish. She believes that if you want greatness in your life, you have to take action and not be afraid to change.

“A rubber band is only useful when it is stretched. Never be afraid of failure,” she said. “Failure is just success wrapped in a lesson.  The lessons can be hard and painful but they are required to grow. You can’t have a rainbow without any rain! Don’t stop.  Don’t quit.  I promise, it will be worth it.”

We do not claim, nor should the reader assume, that any individual experience recounted here are typical or representative of what any other consumer might experience.

In the kitchen with Mila® micro-sliced chia

Mila micro-sliced chia seed is a super food that is gluten-free, trans-fat free, sugar-free, and a superior plant-based source of protein and fiber. Mila uses different varieties of the chia seed to provide a wide array of nutrients. By combining these chia seed varieties, you get a nutritionally robust product.

Because of its mild flavor, Mila is a versatile ingredient that can be incorporated into a variety of dishes to enhance their nutritional value.  Just how nutritious is Mila?

  • Gram for gram, Mila is one of the richest whole-food sources of dietary fiber and omega-3 fats (ALA).
  • The fiber found in Mila is predominantly insoluble fiber, a form of fiber that is especially beneficial to the digestive tract. It supports intestinal regularity and promotes good bowel health, slows digestion of food to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels, and supports weight loss by helping you feel full for a longer period of time.
  • Studies have illustrated improved cardiovascular health among those with a high intake of ALA containing foods like Mila.*

Below are some recipes using Mila; you can also try Mila in your recipes. Add Mila as a substitution to an ingredient already in a recipe. You can also use it as an addition without taking away from the flavor or consistency of the original recipe. Add to cereals, smoothies, beverages, and salads. Learn more about Mila here.
