I finally did it…

I underwent Lasik surgery last week.  I had thought about doing this for the last five years.  It was interesting as five years ago I wasn’t a candidate but this year I was.  It seems that they have made advances in the technology used for the procedure which was incredible news for me.

For a very long time, I happily wore contact lenses and didn’t think too much about it.  Recently, my contacts have become increasingly uncomfortable and I really didn’t like wearing glasses every day.  Before my surgery I made sure to pick the best doctor I could find.

After my surgery, I wanted to make sure that I did everything I could to help my eyes heal quickly.  So what did I do?  I looked at our Purity Products product line to see what supplements I could take to help support eye health and healing.

The Ultimate Eye Formula was the obvious choice.  It’s loaded with many nutrients that help support eye health such as Lutein, Bilberry extract, IP6, Vitamin C, E and B12 and more.

Another product I immediately started using is the Co-Q Daily plus Lutein.   I also made sure to continue with an Omega-3 Fish Oil formula because Omega 3’s help support healing and are integral to many eye functions.  I switched to the Lycopene Omega Super Formula in order to get my fish oil with the additional carotenoids from the lycopene.

I am very happy with my eyesight and how these products gave me added confidence that I was doing everything I could to support quick healing from surgery.

Purple is in, trust me

Purple is such a hot color right now.  As a mom I can tell you all the teenagers are into purple.  My daughter wants purple room, purple clothes, even purple nail polish which I happened to try this week in honor of our new and improved Perfect Purples from Purity Products.  The new formula tastes great!!  I am drinking it right now with some cold water and it is a delicious treat as well as a really great afternoon energy boost.  It’s a great way to get all that berry goodness, as well as vegetables, fiber, Acai, Gogi, Resveratrol, and Brain Nutrients in one great drink.  I would recommend putting it in a water bottle for your child’s next game.   Your child will keep hydrated and energized.   It’s especially good for sipping with some ice during a workout.  Also, the energizing effects are great for moms and dads to use instead of caffeine in the late afternoon at work as well. You will also love how it supports mental clarity. I also like giving it to my kids in the morning especially if they are having a big test that day.

The Product Reviews We Can’t Show

For me, the level of work satisfaction of working for a company (and standing behind their products) depends greatly on what customers openly have to say. Call it a level of reassurance.
Part of my job responsibilities include looking after product reviews that come in. I see firsthand what customers think about our products.
There is a drawback to customer reviews, though, in the nutritional supplement industry. Each and every review must be reviewed first to ensure they are compliant with FDA guidelines. This means if the review is written in a manner that does not comply with guidelines, it can’t be posted. For example, if you posted a review on one of our products where you stated that our product cured a disease, or treated a serious health condition, we wouldn’t be able to post it publicly. To do so would violate FDA policy, which reasonably forbids food or supplement companies from claiming their products treat disease conditions. So while you may see those kinds of reviews posted on other sites, it means the company in question chooses not to comply fully with FDA guidelines like we do.
What ends up happening is that a lot of the most outstanding reviews don’t reach our website for all to see. We believe them. We’re delighted to read them. We just can’t share them with anyone.
The “hidden” reviews have made more than a believer out of me.
Because I work for Purity Products, naturally friends and family will ask me about nutritional supplements. I’m proud and confident to recommend our products to them. When asked “are you just saying that because you work there?,” I say, “don’t take my word for it, read the reviews on our site.” Followed by, “if only you can read the reviews we can’t post.”

Purestin – Suntheanine is great for sleep

I know a lot of folks have a little trouble getting to sleep, at least occasionally. Or maybe your issue isn’t falling asleep, but rather staying asleep. Typically I sleep like a baby (Quick interlude- why does the expression “sleep like a baby” connote deep solid undisturbed sleep?? My 2 kids, when they were babies, normally screamed half the night, either pooping themselves into a mud bath, demanding milk, or just hollering away for some inexplicable but highly interruptive reason!)…

Anyway, recently, for some reason, I noticed that I was consistently waking up in the middle of the night, and it wasn’t so easy to quickly get back to sleep. As you can imagine, I was waking up groggy, grumpy and asking myself “How many hours before I can return to my bed?”

So the first thing I thought of was that maybe I need to stick to one glass of red wine with dinner instead of two. Tried this for a few days and didn’t really help much, which was frustrating because it was the only obvious thing I had changed in my routine recently. Now while I bounce  up and down 10 or so pounds,  I’m not overweight. I run fairly consistently. I avoid sugar (most of the time). All my numbers are rock solid. I did not feel abnormally stressed out.

So I decided to call in the big guns- Purestin, our sleep supplement which features Melatonin and Suntheanine, which is just a fabulous evidence-based ingredient derived from green tea. And while I know you’re thinking “Wait a second, doesn’t this guy SELL this product? How objective can he be?” I have to say I felt the difference the first night.

We know Melatonin works. And Suntheanine is great for sleep because it basically helps you relax without having sedative properties. And Suntheanine is special because there’s actually data showing it helps you wake up feeling more refreshed.

Fortunately, it helped me here as well.  All in, it’s been 3 good nights, and mornings, in a row, and I’m excited about our future with this formulation.
