Woodstock for Nutrition Nerds

Experimental Biology—or “EB” as it is referred to—is the largest nutrition science conference in the world (organized by the American Society for Nutrition, of which I am a long-time member since my graduate-school days).

In a lot of ways, EB is like “Woodstock for nutrition nerds” because nutrition researchers from around the world congregate here every year to present their research on everything from obesity to metabolism to cancer to heart health and everything in between. If you study nutrition, you want to be at EB every year to find out what’s new.

“Get Off the Couch and Be a Blessing to Others”

You could say that Team RVLution has taken their “why” up a notch—well, 860 notches to be exact. As a team, they’ve decided to ride the grueling 860 miles from Oceanside, CA to Durango, CO, in a relay-style ride they are calling the Raise Across the West. Their goal is to finish in 55 hours and to raise $100,000 for The MORE Project. 

Text “4MORE” to 20222 to donate $10.

Effects of MonaVie Mx on Cellular Turnover

MonaVie Mx combines the functional benefits of three existing MonaVie Juices (Essential, Active, and (M)mun) into a single “3-in-1” formula delivering superior antioxidant protection, joint flexibility, and immune system support.

Through a variety of biochemical mechanisms, MonaVie Mx may also stimulate the body’s natural cellular renewal process known as “autophagy,” which can be thought of as a “housekeeping” and repair process for all the cells in our bodies. This process of cellular turnover is a constant cycle of breakdown and buildup—resulting in a healthier, stronger, and more resilient body. You might think of this process the same way you would think about renovations on a house. Sometimes you put up a new wall (“building”)—and sometimes you need to tear down an old damaged wall (“breakdown”) before you can make repairs. The end result of a house renovation is a stronger house—just as the end result of cellular turnover and autophagy is a healthier body.

Our Fat Pets (and what we can learn from them)

You might be asking yourself what fat cats and stressed rats have to do with you? Studies show us quite clearly that being overweight and having excess body fat is detrimental to long-term health, and also show us that typical “fast food” type diets can be both highly addictive (the dopamine data) and extremely “stressful” to break away from (the corticotropin data).

In today’s world where we’re surrounded by both stress and fast food, a big part of the “solution” to managing body weight is to eat meals that (1) taste good, (2) help balance metabolism and blood sugar, and (3) do not feel restrictive like a diet. The MonaVie RVL products have an excellent balance of protein, fats, and carbohydrates that not only taste delicious, but also help keep you satisfied longer.

Joint Flexibility for a More Active Lifestyle

For many people in the nutrition industry, the simple mention of the term “joint health” conjures up images of the “tried and true” dietary supplement, glucosamine. Numerous research studies show the ability of glucosamine supplements to help rebuild and repair joint cartilage to keep joints healthy and flexible. If you’re a consumer of MonaVie Active juice or MonaVie MX juice, then you’re already familiar with the plant-derived form of glucosamine (not from shellfish, like most glucosamine supplements) that MonaVie uses in both products.

What you might not be familiar with, however, is that having a healthy “joint” is a lot more than just healthy cartilage. Joints are actually complex systems involving bones, ligaments, tendons, and blood vessels—and all of these structures need to be maintained in a state of healthy turnover (balance between buildup/breakdown) if we want to stay mobile and flexible as we age.

Stronger Economy. Stronger MonaVie Opportunity.

We have good news and even better news as we approach the end of the first quarter of 2012. The good news: According to a fresh Associated Press survey of leading economic experts, the U.S. economy is improving faster than anticipated. And because of this apparent acceleration in our economic recovery, projections moving forward are reflecting this increased speed. It is now projected that the unemployment rate will fall from its current 8.3% to 8% by Election Day—that’s down from a last December–projected 8.4%. Better yet, by late 2013 the jobless rate is now projected to be at 7.4%, well below the previous estimate of 7.8%. According to USA Today, accompanying these optimistic, new projections are surges in industrial output during both December 2011 and January 2012, leading to a new and higher calculated growth rate of 2.5% this year.
