Ultimate Sleep Formula

I have to say that rarely have I seen the effects of one of our Purity Products so quickly and so effectively as I have found the Ultimate Sleep Formula.  Firstly, almost immediately I found that I woke up refreshed and earlier.  So I got less sleep and felt much more relaxed and refreshed than I normally did.  Isn’t that amazing?  I hate to admit it but I love sleeping.  While I don’t suffer from any kind of sleep disorders, or chronic sleep problems, I do think I need more sleep than most adults. Also,  as I have gotten older I’ve discovered that I have more trouble with waking up in the middle of the night, and when  this happens, I toss and turn and usually wind up feeling like I need to sleep more in the morning.  Since I have started taking Purity Products’ Ultimate Sleep Formula I sleep more soundly and I am telling you the feeling in the morning when my eyes open more than an hour earlier than my alarm clock is set for is just priceless.  When I am up earlier than I need to be and have an incredible feeling of a satisfying and restful sleep and the desire to get up I am astounded because it’s just not how I normally feel.  Also, if that wasn’t enough I started taking the Ultimate Sleep Formula during the day.  Would you believe that when you take it during the day, it doesn’t make you sleepy?  It helps me feel really relaxed but at the same time alert and focused.  I even feel that it enhances my mood.  All of the results I have personally found are supported by the research behind this product as well.  I highly recommend you trying this product.  I am curious to hear what others think about this really wonderful new product. – Sabrina Levin

Research Links Pesticides with ADHD in Children

Recent research published this week in the Journal Pediatrics, has determined a correlation with pesticides exposure and attention-deficit disorder in U.S. children.  The kids’ urine was tested for pesticide residue and those with the highest levels had increased chances of having ADHD which is associated with trouble in school and with learning.  It isn’t clear whether they were exposed in the food they eat or by environmental factors such as drinking water or air.  Pesticides were found in the urine of 94% of the 1,139 children tested.

Previous studies have shown that switching to organic fruits and vegetables drops levels of pesticide compounds in urine to undetectable or close to undetectable levels.  I personally feel that more studies should be done that may actually prove causality and not just correlation with pesticide levels on fruits and vegetables that will push the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to lower the levels of pesticide that are deemed expectable in all food.   Until then parents in general should be aware of the risks that may be involved when feeding their children non-organic produce and non-filtered water.

Here at Purity Products we established our Organic Brothers line of Certified Organic Triple Greens and Organic Reds Formula exactly because of our concern for this issue.  Our customers can feel confident drinking our Reds and Triple Greens knowing they are certified organic by the USDA and QAI.  I love when my kids drink our powdered drinks because I know the benefits are tremendous and the drinks are so pure and contaminant free.  Also, many of our other powdered drinks although not certified organic contain many organic ingredients as well.

I for one, try to buy as much organic food as I can to make sure my kids have as little pesticide exposure as possible.  Reality is we are all exposed to pesticides and chemicals on some level.  Why not do what you can to lower the exposure as much as possible especially for our children who are more susceptible due to their growing bodies and relative size?

Organic vs. Non-Organic Eggs—is it worth it?

Buying Organic eggs?  Ever wonder if it’s worth it?  I was at the market the other day and observed a young couple.  The female went to put some organic eggs into the cart when her significant other said, “Hold on now, why would be pay so much more for the same thing?”  I could tell the girl was disappointed and felt like she needed to defend what she wanted to do.  I tried to walk away and mind my own business but not until I put my organic eggs into my cart.  I understand times are tough and people have to cut corners but I believe that buying organic eggs is so worth it for me.  Firstly, eggs are a very healthy complete food.  One egg has most of the nutrients one needs to have optimal health.  The protein value is excellent in building strong muscle and it’s a great food for pregnant women and kids too.  In fact, I believe having organic eggs, let’s say as an omelet with vegetables for dinner, is much more economical than many other food choices and you will get much more bang for your buck nutritionally.  Also, I always feel full and satisfied after this type of meal and can go longer between meals which can also be argued as a great way to cut down on expenses and calories that would have been spent on snacking foods.

Organic eggs are always free-range.  These hens are always fed an organic diet.  The eggs are healthier with higher levels of Vitamin B, Folic Acid and higher Omega-3’s as well.  Non organic chickens, unless they are free range, may be and more often than not are usually kept in small cages and fed genetically engineered corn, animal by-products and antibiotics. The overuse of antibiotics can result in antibiotic resistance in humans and can contribute to overgrowth of yeasts and other unfriendly bacteria in the intestinal tract.  The farmers may also be using hormones which could further jeopardize our health and vitality in the long run.  The USDA organic standards are the strictest food production standards in the world and are regularly inspected by a third party. Also, organic means that the chickens can’t be fed food from genetically modified sources.  Lastly, by buying organic eggs I know I am going green as we like to do here at Purity Products, by supporting the organic farmers, and supporting a system which doesn’t pollute our environment further.

Orange Juice as a Super Food

I always thought apple juice was an empty drink with lots of sugar, so I told my kids to drink it rarely and watered it down significantly when they really wanted it.  Now it seems that apple juice may help to  maintain acetylcholine levels, which could help support memory and recall.  So next time I call out the names of each of my four kids before arriving at the appropriate one I will reach for a glass of apple juice.

Orange juice too is now touted as being a super food especially helpful with diminishing inflammation throughout the body.  Besides having good doses of Vitamin C (highest in the pulp), orange juice is a great drink choice for its many health benefits.

If you are going to go nuts and allow your car to swerve into the Fast Food Drive-thru of choice, you better order some orange juice with your meal.  A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition last month says OJ significantly neutralized the proinflammatory effect of a high-fat, high-carbohydrate meal and also prevented endotoxin increase.   Oranges are nature’s superfoods and are full of flavonoids and phytochemicals as well as vitamin C.

But what about the sugar?   Solution:  Purity Products’ Amazing Oranges!!

What a great way to get the benefits of oranges (plus many the benefits of many other orange fruits/vegetables) without all the sugar in juice.  It’s also very good if you are trying to watch your calories as orange juice can be highly caloric when trying to lose or maintain weight.  It’s a great way to start your day as a morning drink to help wake you up.  I have used it after a workout or before especially if I’m feeling sluggish.  It’s also good as an afternoon “pick me up”, and as everyone here at  Purity Products knows, it really gives you a great sense of vitality and clarity after you have it.  The triple action blend features 3 classes of phytonutrients: Carotenoids, Polyphenols and Bioflavonoids amplified with Vitamins C & D to support healthy energy, endurance, and mental clarity.

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.

Omega-3, Glucosamine, and Chondroitin: We knew it was a strong combination!

The benefits of glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate have been well established since the GAIT study sponsored by the National Institute of Health was published in the New England Journal of Health in 2006.  The result indicated that glucosamine and chondroitin provided excellent nutritional benefits for joint health.  The Omega-3’s in fish oil are better known for their cardiovascular benefits, but it is its special ability to naturally support the body’s normal inflammatory response that has researchers examining its utility in promoting joint health.  Recently, a Berlin based study reported that combining Omega-3 fatty acids with glucosamine could be a better approach than using glucosamine alone.  Our Joint Formula Supreme is a good way for people looking to support their joint health using natural nutritional tools. The scientists in the recent study noted that the ingredients acted synergistically.  As we would have expected, the Omega 3’s were beneficial in supporting a proper inflammatory response, whereas the glucosamine sulfate played a beneficial role in the rebuilding of lost cartilage substance. Purity Products captures the magic of this combo in our new and updated Joint Formula Supreme.  With well over a full gram of our concentrated molecularly distilled fish oil, it’s not only your front-line joint formula, but it conveniently doubles as your daily fish oil supplement.

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.
