          Are You Eating In Full Color At Every Meal?  

You should be getting phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals from five color categories: Red, Yellow/Orange, Green, Blue/Purple, and White. Phytonutrients provide antioxidant protection and many other health benefits. It's hard to get them even if you tried. By the time you bring home your fruits and vegetables from the market, they sat for days in transit and on the shelf. Phytonutrients start to die off once harvested. Therefore, supplementation with an exceptionally high product is necessary for maintaining good health.



The Nutrilite brand has been around for a long time, since 1934. It focuses on using phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals, in its natural form, from the plants. The plant concentrates come from its own farm, which are certified organic farms of over 6,400 acres. The parent company, Amway Global, takes care to ensure that premium ingredients are only used.

Nutrilite is featured in a section of the sports arena in downtown Orlando. I recently had an opportunity to visit the new Amway Center, home of the Orlando Magic NBA team. In fact, there were signs of Nutrilite everywhere throughout the Magic Fan Interactive Experience area, with even tabletops featuring the brand. The brand is only available for purchase through an Amway Independent Business Owner, but this form of branding is is effective because of the amount of people that come to the Amway Center.

For Amway, owning and maintaining all of the farms means that the company is able to control the manufacturing of the products more so than normal. This ensures a premium product with the best ingredients. No chemicals are used on the plants, nor are synthetic pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers. The soil is replenished rather than depleted. And only environmentally friendly methods are used to control weeds and insects.

Furthermore, Amway goes to extremes to include the best professionals when formulated the organic supplements. The Nutrilite Health Institute is a band of experts, more than 100 scientists, who are involved in the clinical research and product development. Research is led the Scientific Advisory Board which is a 10 member board of leading scientists from around the world with experience in health, nutrition and even genetics. Current members of the board include:

Sam Rehnborg, Ph.D.
Junshi Chen, M.D.
Ruth DeBush, Ph.D., R.D.
Stephen Fortmann, M.D.
Z.C. Ho, M.D., Ph.D.
Kenneth S. Kornman, D.D.S., Ph.D.
Hoyoku Nishini, M.D.
Artemis Simopoulos, M.D.
Thomas J. Slaga, Ph.D.
Young-Joon Surh, Ph.D.

With the experience of this board and the dedication to the Nutrilite brand by Amway Global, you can feel confident that you are going to get a high quality product. And Amway Global is so confident that it stands behind its Nutrilite line with a 180 day money back guarantee.

So why are phytonutrients so important? First, are you eating in full color at every meal? Most people do not. You should be getting phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals from five color categories: Red, Yellow/Orange, Green, Blue/Purple, and White. Phytonutrients provide antioxidant protection and many other health benefits. It's hard to get them even if you tried.

By the time you bring home your fruits and vegetables from the market, they sat for days in transit and on the shelf. Phytonutrients start to die off once harvested. Therefore, supplementation with an exceptionally high product is necessary for maintaining good health.

Let's see which color foods have which phytonutrients (don't worry about remembering the names of the phytonutrients, just know why thay are important).

1) White foods contain quercetin and allicin - maintains healthy bones, circulatory health, and supports arterial function.

2) Green foods contain isoflavones, isothiocyanate, EGCG, and lutein/zeaxanthin which supports the liver, cells, lungs and arterial function.

3) Orange/Yellow foods contain alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, hesperidin, beta cryptoxanthin which support eye health, immune function, skin hydration, growth and development.

4) Red foods contain lycopene and ellagic acid which is important in prostate health and cell health.

5) Blue/Purple foods contain resveratrol and anythocanidins which supports cognitive health, heart health, arterial function and antioxidant protection.

Nutrilite has many products for all your needs. But one of the top products is Nutrilite's Double X, which contains phytonutrients from all of the above categories. Double X is not synthetic (many products are made in a lab and are not made from real plants). It's derived from plants and fruits such as acerola cherries, red apples, cranberries, pomegranate, tomato, lemons, mandarin oranges, asparagus, basil, broccoli, kale, oregano, parsley, rosemary, sage, watercress, blueberries, grapes, plums, and horseradish and more.

In addition to the vitamin, mineral and phytonutrient products for women, men and kids, there are products for weight management and sports nutrition. The sports products are specifically formulated to provide the athlete with energy, strength, hydration, quick recovery and support to help you get the most out of your training. Whether you are in track, football, basketball, baseball or any sport, Nutrilite sport nutrition products will take your performance to the next level.

Now that you have a basic understanding of what the brand Nutrilite, Amway's practices, you can feel confident in using this line. Amway's new spokesperson, Kurt Warner, started with Nutrilite's supplements and immediately reported feeling better and sleeping better. So if an NFL Superstar like Kurt Warner is getting results from the brand, then so can others.
