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.

Ask the Expert answers your product questions

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: Do any of your products contain vitamin D?

A: Daily Build contains 100% DV of vitamin D3. CalciuMK+ contains 150% DV of vitamin D3. Vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin, has several important functions. It works with calcium to promote healthy bones. It also facilitates normal immune system function.

Q: Is there an ingredient in GoYin that is stimulating?

A: The ingredients in GoYin are not known to be stimulating. There are botanical ingredients that together help support the body’s ability to better handle stress. Most would describe the effects of GoYin as having a calming rather than a stimulating effect. However, everyone’s biochemistry is different and not everyone will react the same.

Q: Does the flash pasteurization process that the superfruit juices go through harm the phytonutrients?

A: Although the levels of certain nutrients in Superfruits may decrease with pasteurization, the final product retains most of the original nutritional value. The idea behind flash pasteurization is to expose the juices to a higher temperature for a very short period of time (i.e. seconds). Other juices sold in the market place may choose to kettle pasteurize. While this process also kills harmful bacteria and microorganisms, a good portion of beneficial nutrients are destroyed, because this form of pasteurization takes several minutes (usually 30 min.). After you open pasteurized juice, it may lose nutritional value due to exposure to light and the air. To optimize nutritional value, store pasteurized juice in the container in which it came. Superfruits are still all natural as we are not altering or adding any ingredients.

How well do your know your B6 vitamins?

Knowledge is power and the more you know about vitamins, their benefits and their safe consumption, the wiser and healthier you’ll be.

All eight of the B vitamins, the energy vitamins, are important in helping the body convert food into fuel. B vitamins also help fight infection and disease. It’s also important to note that excessive consumption can be unhealthy.

In this blog post, we are going to educate on vitamin B6, also called pyridoxine. It plays a part in such major functions including movement, memory and blood flow. Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin meaning is dissolves in water so the body cannot store it. Leftovers leave the body through urine.

Adults ages 19 to 50 need 1.3 milligrams of vitamin B6 daily, while older senior women need 1.5 milligrams and senior men need 1.7 milligrams.1 The recommended supplemental, tolerable upper intake level is 100 mg (5,000% DV).2

Benefits of vitamin B6

  • Maintains normal nerve function
  • Supports a healthy gut
  • Balances healthy levels of blood sugar
  • Aids in the function of enzymes and protein metabolism

Deficiencies of vitamin B6

Not enough vitamin B6 intake may be linked to depression, and can also cause anemia. A lack of vitamin B6 can cause confusion, nausea, susceptibility to infections and skin rashes.

Be careful not to overdo it

According to the federal government, you should not take more than 100 milligrams of vitamin B6 a day (the upper tolerable limit), in supplement form. However, high intakes of vitamin B6 from food is safe.

Taking too much vitamin B6 in supplement form can cause nerve damage, sensitivity to the sun, painful skin lesions and nausea and heartburn. Taking vitamin B6 can also interfere with several types of medications.1

GoYin, Daily Build, 360 Compete Shake, Metabolic ONE, GPS Rebuild, GPS Energize, GPS Hydrate, ENERGY and PURE Café all contain B vitamins, including B6. If you took the recommended servings of these products, which is 2 times a day, your vitamin B6 intake would be approximately 90 mg.

However, if you were to take more than the suggested serving, approximately 3-4 times a day, you would be surpassing the safe limit.

Following the recommended serving of every supplement is very important, as you want to be careful not to go significantly above the recommended allowance. Every product pack contains a Daily Usage Guide that offers suggested product use throughout the day for optimal benefits. Be sure to read the product labels or learn more about each product and its recommended use at livepure.com.

Become the best version of YOU with CORE4

There’s a saying that you can’t build a solid structure on a weak foundation. This is also true for our bodies. At PURE, we designated four products to help lay that foundation – HealthTrim® Cleanse, GoYin, Daily Build and ENERGY.

Together, CORE4 helps fuel your body with the key nutrients needed to maximize you! CLEANSE your body of toxins, BALANCE your mood and stress levels, BUILD your nutrients and provide FOCUS with increased energy levels and mental clarity.*

What does the best version of you look like?

Are you thriving and feeling your best every day? Are you physically and mentally active? Or, do you deal with stress on a daily basis? Are you losing critical sleep most nights? Perhaps you snack on junk food and sit for prolonged periods without exercise. You are always capable of becoming more by giving your body what it needs. We’re giving you the products to make that possible.

CORE4:

  • Daily Build. Contains 23 vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, botanicals, and all-inclusive blends: Neuroprotective, Phyto-Vegetable, Phyto-Fruit, Bio-Protection, Amino Acid, Trace Mineral, Superfruit Juice, and Take 1 fl. oz. daily with a well-balanced diet or two capsules twice daily with your morning and evening meals.
  • GoYin. Balance your stress levels on a daily basis. GoYin is a great-tasting 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.* In a clinical study, GoYin was found to be effective in promoting healthy energy levels and mood.* Take 1-2 fl. oz. on an empty stomach in the morning and afternoon or as directed by your healthcare provider. Additional servings may be taken throughout the day if desired.
  • HealthTrim Cleanse. Cleanse your body and support your digestion. Gentle, natural, non-fasting detox gets things moving again while removing harmful toxins from the body.* The active ingredient is cascara sagrada, an herb used for centuries for the treatment of short-term constipation.* Add exercise and a healthy diet to your regimen and you’ll be on your way to ‘regular.’ Intended for short-term use (7-10 days) every couple of months. We recommend starting with two capsules daily with 8 fl. oz. of water in the morning or before bed. Do not exceed 8 capsules in 24 hours.
  • ENERGY. After you’ve built, balanced, and cleansed, clear the mental fog with ENERGY, the perfect alternative to sugar-laden energy drinks. It’s packed with antioxidants, botanicals and natural sources of caffeine, with no preservatives, artificial coloring or sweeteners. Just add it to your bottle of water and drink throughout the day. ENERGY stimulates alertness, enhances cognitive performance, eases fatigue and promotes wakefulness.* Add one level scoop or one packet drink mix to 8-12 fl. oz. of water (according to taste). Drink whenever a boost of energy is needed.*

It’s sweet to have a healthy heartbeat

In honor of Valentine’s Day and Heart Health Month, let’s talk about the heart. Having a healthy heart is so important. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women.1 Here at PURE, we ‘whole-heartedly’ believe that education is critical to keeping our hearts as healthy as can be.

We know that being physically active and eating a healthy diet are ‘musts’ for heart health. Other recommended lifestyle changes include quitting smoking, exercising to maintain a healthy weight, limiting stress and alcohol use, having our cholesterol and blood pressure frequently checked, among other things.

We can also add the following products by PURE to our daily routine for optimal wellness. Each contains ingredients that support heart health.

Heart-healthy products by PURE:

Take these additional steps to show your heart even more love.2

Avoid trans fats – Trans fat clogs your arteries by raising your bad cholesterol levels and lowering your good cholesterol levels. Cut these out of your diet to improve blood flow. Food to avoid include packaged baked goods, snack goods, margarines and fried foods.  Read food labels and look for partially hydrogenated oils, which are trans fats.

Brush and floss your teeth every day – It’s been shown that people with periodontal disease have the same risk factors for heart disease. Bacteria in your mouth can move into the bloodstream and can cause inflammation in the blood vessels.

Get adequate sleep – Studies suggest that lack of sleep may cause disruptions in biological processes, including blood pressure and inflammation. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep most nights. MelaTrim sleep and weight-loss support is a combination of herbs, amino acids, minerals and melatonin that together help the body get adequate sleep and burn calories naturally while sleeping.*

Avoid second-hand smoke – Chemicals from cigarette smoke promote the development of plaque buildup in the arteries.
