Last month I went to the Amway Center of Health in California to view the process of how the Nutrilite supplements are made first-hand. We toured the facilities, watched batches of vitamins being made, and listened to a few interesting speakers on who and what Nutrilite is all about. If you aren’t familiar with Nutrilite, they are the the leader of mineral, vitamin, and dietary supplements worldwide. Their plant concentrates are grown according to sustainable farming principles on their organic farms like Trout Lake Farm, pictured below. This is one of the major reasons I believe they are the leader in their industry.
Why you need vitamins…
I will shamefully admit before this experience I never took vitamins, but I decided to go on this trip because I needed the knowledge and that little extra push to living a more healthy life. Nutrilite and the doctors, scientists, and everybody behind the scenes are very firm believers that you can only achieve optimal health through a healthy diet, exercise, and healthy lifestyle choices. You then fill in the nutritional gaps with Nutrilite supplements.
Color yourself healthy
One of the most interesting things I learned is that we are actually supposed to be eating 9-13 servings of fruits and vegetables each day and you should try to eat every color of fruit and vegetable. Why do colors matter? Each color contains different plant nutrients, or phytonutrients, which act as antioxidants to protect your cells and also have specific health benefits. Here is a great chart with all of the fruits and vegetables in each color category and what nutrients are associated with them.
