While Sampling my vitamins products last evening I found out something very cool. I want to share it with you.
Your body is pretty cool, but it can’t make a silk purse out of a pig’s ear. It can’t make nutrients out of synthetic chemicals. Try this: Put your current supplement tablet in a glass of water and watch what happens. If the tablet or capsule does not break down within 15 minutes, it is synthetic. It will sit at the bottom of the glass only releasing the coloring and the shellac.
But there is some good news: That synthetic product at the bottom of the glass will pass through your body unused and even though this is a waste of your money the synthetic will not harm you. It ends up in your local sewer system.
Yesterday, while sampling at a local grocery store in Salt Lake City, an older well-dressed woman listening to my pitch about VMA Multi Vitamins spoke up.
“Everyone here should eat a radish a day. The red radish is very low in calories they provides a goodly amount of potassium, vitamin C, folate and fiber. Radishes are grown and consumed in almost every country in the world.”
I am trying to tell people about my multi vitamin, and I have “Miss Radish USA” taking over my space.
She continues, a smile on her face, “Radishes were grown in China and Egypt thousands of years ago. Ancient writings have shown they were cultivated before the building of the pyramids.”
A young man wearing a Jiffy-Lube shirt says; “Are these vitamins made from radishes?
“No”, I say.
Well they should be says “Miss Radish USA” reply’s and she takes control of the group again. “In Ancient Greece the radish was so popular that gold replicas were made and offered to the god Apollo.”
At that point I have to stop her. “Where did you learn all of this?” I ask as my crowd of future customers gets thinner and thinner.
At that, I pack up my table and head home.

Last Saturday we had the opportunity to enhance our Activz brand and increase our product visibility by promoting our Activz Whole 9 Meal Replacement and our Activz VMA Multi Vitamins at the National Gluten Free Expo in Salt Lake City.
This expo put retailers, manufacturers, brand owners and marketers of Gluten Free products under one roof where attendees could touch, taste, and buy the latest in Gluten Free products from a variety of vendors. The diversity of the attendees made this expo an important forum for exhibitors with a wide range of products. The event was well planned and from what I observed the execution was flawless.
There were lots of cool products ranging from Snappy Daddy’s BBQ Sauce to Squatter’s Gluten Free Beer. I must have eaten thirty different types of bread and cookies and brownies and snack bars.
I don’t know the number of people that passed through the front door, but our booth was busy from the opening to the closing. We had well over 1200 people sample our products; that’s close to 3 samples every minute. The three people working our booth, me included, were busy and happy all day. I didn’t talk to one exhibitor or attendee that did not have a great time.

Last weekend my company, Honest Nutrition, was an exhibitor at our county’s ‘green expo’. A variety of exhibitors explained the latest environmentally friendly products and services to attendees such as alternative energy, green building and remodeling, water ecology, natural gardening and health and wellness; to name a few.
One booth seemed a bit out of place, a bank vice president giving advice about responsible investments. Kind of strange; a bank and responsible investments?
I learned that ‘Bee Keeping’ is a thriving hobby, can be a good business, and the benefits to the world are plentiful. The beekeeper told me bees pollinate all sorts of plants, the ones we eat along with the ones wild animals eat. And of course bees make honey and everyone likes honey.
I learned from the ‘windmill and solar’ folks that I can save money on electricity by installing either a windmill or a few solar panels. While upfront costs are still a bit high, the man told me there’s federal and state grants or incentives to supplement the cost.
One exhibitor showed me the art she made from junk mail and one guy made art from recycled bike tires and another made drinking glasses from recycled pop bottles; pretty cool. I now know what I’m getting my sisters for Christmas.
One woman made fashionable purses from old belts and sweaters. She said it was simply recycling items at the end of their life-cycle. Another woman turned old blankets into bedroom curtains and still another woman turned old curtains into dresses, or maybe it was vice versa, but for me, the real beauty was in the creative ways these women made one-of-a-kind items.
I also found out we should use cold water to wash our clothing and we should line-dry our clothes year round. This was needed information because last month my clothes dryer broke. As soon as I found my wife I told her about the line-dry idea. ”We can save money darling. We don’t need a new clothes dryer.” That didn’t go over very well. I can tell you right now there will not be a clothes line in our back yard. A new dryer in the laundry room; yes. Clothes line in the back yard; no.
I learned a lot from the exhibitors I spoke with and I came away smarter. Did you know that an average adult generates about five pounds of garbage each day? I recommend everyone attended a ‘green expo’.

Nothing synthetic is used in our process, nothing synthetic is added.
All vitamins and nutrients are from Organic Fruits, Organic Vegetables, and botanicals.

Day after day shoppers surprise me with how much they don’t know about vitamins. Take Margaret C. as an example. Margaret is a 56 year old woman who has raised 4 children. ”I don’t know what is in the vitamin I take or if they will keep me healthy.”
Margaret and I talked. I explained to Margaret that her synthetic vitamins are man-made in a laboratory. In the world of chemistry they may be identical to whole food vitamins, but there is a big difference between these “man-made” vitamins and natural vitamins once they enter her body. They act different from whole food natural vitamins.
Let’s take Vitamin C, the most highly processed vitamin there is. The ‘man-made’ form is ‘Ascorbic acid’. Ascorbic acid is not really vitamin C, it is the outer ring that is the protective shell for the complex known as Vitamin C. In natural vitamin C inside this outer ring you find Factor K, Factor J, Factor P, and Ascorbinogern Ascorbic acid. These compounds are missing from ‘man-made’ vitamin C (ascorbic acid).
To better understand this think of an egg. When you consume acsorbic acid you are eating the shell, nothing else. When you consume natural vitamin C, as found in our VMA Multi Vitamins, you are consuming the whole egg.
Here’s what happens when you consume ‘man-made’ vitamin C. Your body must gather the missing components from your tissues in order to make the vitamin a complete complex. It’s like eating an egg shell and having your body supply the yolk and egg whites. It is not good. If your body does not have the needed components. it eliminates the Ascorbic acid in your urine.
Whole food natural vitamins work together to supply your body with the full potential of their purpose. ‘Man-made’ vitamins do not. It is that simple.

By the way, give me a like on Facebook, please:
While talking about my Activz VMA Multi Vitamins in a heath food store last week I had a wonderful conversation with an elder lady. She sampled Activz VMA, my whole food multi vitamin, smiled and said to me. ” Good health is not something you buy from a store. Good health comes from the choices you make.”
“Please continue,” I said.
“You have to pay attention to the foods you eat, you have to exercise and you have to work in your yard as much as you can. Flowers make you happy.” she smiles and continues. “I quit smoking years ago, used to smoke Chesterfield longs. Back then people didn’t know smoking was bad for you. I quit smoking because my friend always complained about the smell in the damn car. I wanted her for a friend, so I quit.”
She walks around the small store for a short time and comes back to my table. ”Overweight, that’s the problem most people have, too much fried food, too much beer. I like beer, drink a glass every night. I don’t drink that light stuff, tastes like water.”
Another lady enters the store and speaks. “Mom, are you ready to go?”
The older lady looks at her daughter and continues talking to me. “Shes the one that needs vitamins.”
“Mom, I am not buying vitamins.”
“I have her and two other daughters. I am 93. After all these years my damn kids still don’t listen to me. I will probably out live all of them.”
She turn and walks out.
What wonderful advice this woman gave us.
Good health comes from the choices you make.
