The Vitality Pack® with Oligo®

Vitality Pack Powered by Oligo

Vitality Pack Powered by Oligo

THE VITALITY PACK PROVIDES RESEARCH-RECOMMENDED LEVELS of key nutrients customized for your age and gender. It’s also the only multivitamin powered by our patented Oligo mineral delivery technology. Only Oligo helps keep nutrients in a form your body can more easily absorb. As a result, you get a lifetime of better health and wellness.

Not all minerals are equal

The mineral forms found in traditional multivitamins (gluconates, oxides, sulfates, etc.) dissolve easily in the acidic environment of the stomach, but as they pass into the small intestine where absorption takes place, they crystallize (or solidify), making them very difficult, if not impossible, to absorb–drastically reducing their benefit to the body.

Superior absorption

Oligo was created to be Just Like Nature.® Only Oligo binds minerals to organic compounds (amino acids and oligofructose) to mirror the way they are found in fruits, vegetables, and other whole foods to maximize solubility. In fact, Oligo minerals are scientifically proven to provide up to 4 times greater absorption than the minerals found in leading brands.*†

Maximum antioxidant protection

Minerals in traditional supplements can trigger massive free radical activity during digestion. These free radicals can actually cancel out the benefits of antioxidants like vitamins C and E. Oligo minerals are different. Oligo reduces free radical activity, thereby protecting critical antioxidants up to 5 times better than the leading brands.† It also extends that free radical protection throughout the entire body!

Patented Mineral delivery technology

In study after study, science has shown there is no other mineral technology that compares to Oligo. And thanks to patent no. 8,273,393, Melaleuca is the only place you’ll find Oligo.

4x Greater Absorption

5x more antioxidant protection

REDUCES FREE RADICAL ACTIVITY BETTER THAN ANY OTHER BRAND!

Oligo inhibits the free radical activity that traditional mineral forms cause. This protects the potency of your antioxidants and prevents free radicals from spreading throughout your body.

Oligo keeps minerals up to 10-times more soluble during digestion–making them much easier for the body to absorb.

Traditional mineral forms crystallize when they reach the small intestine, making them very difficult for the body to absorb.

“I want my customers to know that I was like them: I didn’t take a supplement and didn’t think they mattered, but once I tried Oligo and understood the science, that’s when I really got it. I know that when others really understand the science, that’s when they’ll never go back.”

Yvette Zona didn’t take vitamins. She didn’t think they mattered. After all, she was in good health and had plenty of energy. Fortunately for Yvette, her presenter convinced her to try the 90-Day Challenge.

“I figured I’d just take the vitamins for 90 days and then get all my money back,” Yvette recalls.

Only something happened—Yvette took the vitamins daily, and she actually felt better.

“I felt totally different!” Yvette says. “I needed less sleep and had more energy. I started reading about nutrition and discovered how difficult it is for anyone to get all the nutrition they need without help. I learned that Oligo had superior absorption, and I’ve been taking Vitality Total ever since.”

Yvette shares her Oligo experience with every customer. “I want my customers to know that I was just like them: I didn’t take a supplement and didn’t think they mattered. But once I tried Oligo and understood the science, that’s when I really got it,” Yvette says. “I know that when others really understand the science, that’s when they’ll never go back.”

For people like Yvette who’ve never taken a vitamin before, taking the 90-Day Challenge means creating a new habit. Yvette encourages her customers to set an alarm to remind them each day. “You might not feel a huge difference right away,” Yvette says, speaking of the 90-Day Challenge. “But if you stop taking the Vitality Pack after a few weeks, you’ll feel the difference.”

Through sharing her story, explaining the science, and getting her customers to take the 90-Day approach, Yvette is seeing great success. Just recently, Yvette enrolled a customer who used to regularly purchase from another supplement company. “She watched the Oligo video and realized her old stuff was junk,” Yvette says. “And because of the 90-Day Challenge, she literally feels the difference Oligo makes. She left her old company and started building a Melaleuca business.”

Oligo® The Just Like Nature® solution to better daily health and nutrition

vitality-oligo
In a nutrient-starved world where even brand name supplements may not offer all the nutrition listed on the label, Oligo helps close the gaps and put you in control of your daily health and vitality

LIFE HAS A WAY OF WEARING YOU DOWN, pulling you in so many different directions that it becomes too easy to miss those little moments that make it so meaningful. Getting proper nutrition every day is the best way to safeguard your health and build yourself back up, but fewer and fewer of us are eating the right amounts of fruits and vegetables daily, and the vitamin and mineral supplements at the drugstore likely aren’t giving you everything you’re paying for. Only Oligo maximizes the potency of your supplements to ensure you get the nutrition you need to be your best and make the most of every moment.

Seeking solutions from nature
In fruits, vegetables and other whole foods, plants draw minerals from the soil, and then bind them to proteins and fibers. In this form, they are easier for the human body to use and absorb. Melaleuca set out to duplicate the process used by nature. Melaleuca scientists tested hundreds of mineral forms before developing what would become known as Oligo. And the results were nothing short of astounding.

Proper nutrition: more than diet alone
Studies show that fewer and fewer of us are eating the ideal amounts of fruits and vegetables every day. But even when we make an effort to eat healthier, we can still come up short. Modern farming practices combined with new varieties of crops and even changes in the soil add up to one thing—fruits and vegetables aren’t as healthy as they once were. That means getting the nutrition we need from food alone is more difficult than ever.

Not all supplements are created equal
At a time when health care costs are skyrocketing and benefit programs are more confusing than ever, more and more adults are attempting to take control of their health. An easy and proactive step is to take a daily multivitamin and mineral, but not all supplements are created equal. Minerals are notoriously difficult to absorb. In addition, Melaleuca scientists recognized that the mineral forms found in traditional multivitamins (gluconates, oxides, sulfates and fumerates) trigger massive free radical activity during digestion. These free radicals can cancel out the benefits of antioxidants like vitamins A, C and E. Even more alarming, when out of balance, free radical damage can disrupt bodily systems and can lead to serious health concerns.

5 Tips to stay on top of your 2014 weight loss goals

workout-girl
You vs February: Running low on fitness motivation? Don’t give up yet.

It hurts. You’re tired. It’s too early. You’re sore. The gym always plays obnoxious music. You hate getting sweaty. You feel ridiculous dressed like this. You look silly to all of these skinny, fit people. You never liked gym class anyway. Is this even making a difference?

Go ahead: Add your reason to quit working out to the list. You set a goal to get fit, lose weight and improve your health last month, and now you’re into the month where New Year’s resolutions go to die: February. This is when your workout stops feeling new and fun, and starts feeling downright hard.

Want your New Year’s resolution to survive February? Want to keep it up long enough to see actual results and really change your life? Yogi Berra said, “Baseball is 90 percent mental; the other half is physical”—and the same goes for your workout routine. Whether your exercise habit survives is going to depend more on what’s going on in your head than what’s going on in your aerobics class. So how do you get your head straightened out?

Find a Fitness Nemesis … er, Buddy
Having a fitness pal can be a positive, but it’s not for everybody. How do you know if it would be a good thing for you? Well, if your fitness friend outperformed you, would you

a) feel discouraged and quit working out?
b) feel competitive and try to get the upper hand by the next workout?
c) not even notice?
d) get angry and smash one of those large mirrors against the gym wall?

If you chose b) or c), go get a workout partner. If you chose a), keep working out solo. If you chose d), go see a psychiatrist. Having a partner keeps you accountable and gives you additional motivation. If that’s not enough, you could ask your workout buddy (or buddies) to publicly shame you with embarrassing pictures on a website or social media if you fail to show up for your workout. (For reference on how to do this properly, visit November-project.com/ category/we-missed-you/)

Get a Mantra
This trick comes from marathon runners and endurance athletes, but there’s no reason you can’t take this same strategy into the weight room or indoor cycling class. Choose a phrase, or even a single word, and repeat it when times get tough. One marathoner told The New York Times he repeats the phrase “pain is inevitable; suffering is optional” over and over again as he taps out 26.2 miles. Need a few more examples?

“You don’t have to feel good to run fast.”
“Sweat is your fat crying.”
“Bigger, stronger, faster.”
“Go hard or go home.”
“Pain is weakness leaving the body.”

Buy a Box of Access Bars
Yes, the Access Bar® will help you burn fat more efficiently, but that’s not the point of this particular tip. Purchase one box of your absolute favorite flavor of Access Bars and commit (pinky swear if you have to) to only eat a bar before a minimum 30-minute workout. There are 10 bars in each box, and that means you’ll have to do 10 workouts (or two and a half hours of exercise) this month.

If you’re already working out more than 10 times per month, double it and give me 20! That’ll be five hours of exercise per month. The point is, you’ll get a reward for deciding to do your workout, and you’ll have the added benefit of feeling less sore, which will help with your motivation to go do it again next month.

Keep a Workout Calendar
There’s an old saying about planning: “Plans are useless but planning is invaluable.” What does that mean? At the start of every week, write out your fitness plan. (If you want extra credit, you can write out your nutrition plan too.) Every time you fulfill a scheduled workout, draw a happy face over it on your calendar.

But suppose your planned workout doesn’t come through—the weather doesn’t cooperate or your workout buddies bail on you. If you replace your planned workout with another 30-minute workout, draw your smiley face anyway. If, on the other hand, you miss a workout, draw a sad face … or an angry face … in red ink … baring its teeth at you. You get the point.

Hang your workout calendar in a public place where your entire family can see it. At the end of the week, you and your family can look back to see what you did—or didn’t—accomplish.

Focus On The Process
Say you want to lose 15 pounds. When you step on the scale, will it inspire you to work harder? Or will it remind you how far you have yet to go? And how many nagging reminders can you take before you throw your hands up and quit?

If standing on the scale every day motivates you to get better, by all means, do it. But if measuring yourself every day leaves you feeling discouraged, for goodness’ sake, stop doing it. Instead, focus on what you have to do to achieve your goal: exercise and eat better.

Real results come when you execute your plan over the long term. In an ideal world, you’ll even come to enjoy it. And when that happens, goal or no goal, you’ll keep doing it.

Minerals Matter Micronutrients Yield A Big Benefit

While vitamins get a lot of the credit for good health, minerals are just as critical. In fact, without minerals, vitamins cannot be metabolized and are rendered useless. Yet too many of us aren’t getting minerals in a form our bodies can actually use. That’s why Melaleuca minerals are powered by Oligo.®

What is an essential mineral?

Minerals are simply inorganic chemical substances. They are all naturally occurring in the earth, but cannot be created by the body. An “essential” mineral is just that—a mineral that is critical to life and good health.

The spark plugs of life

Minerals are often referred to as the “spark plugs of life” because these chemical elements are required to activate the more than 20,000 enzymes found in the human body. If you think of an enzyme as an engine, it is the mineral that provides the spark that starts the engine, while vitamins and amino acids are part of the fuel that helps it perform its task. Without the mineral—the trigger—the reaction would never take place.

Jump-starting critical functions

Enzyme reactions are responsible for everything from regulating your heartbeat to breathing, digesting food, and even proper growth and development. Each enzyme has a specific function in the body that no other enzyme can perform, and each enzyme requires a specific essential mineral or group of minerals to function properly. As a result, the health and proper functioning of your body is directly tied to getting the ideal level of essential minerals every day.

Why aren’t we getting enough?

While all the minerals we need are found in the earth, our bodies cannot process them in their raw form. The ideal way to get minerals is from the foods we eat. But there are two problems with that.

We don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables: According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), only 14% of adults eat the recommended number of servings of fruits and vegetables a day.

Fruits and vegetables contain fewer minerals: Modern farming practices combined with new varieties of crops and even changes in the soil all add up one to one thing—fruits and vegetables aren’t as healthy as they once were. That means getting the minerals we need from food alone is more difficult than ever before.
reduced-minerals

First signs of deficiency

That fatigue you’re feeling may not be just because of the changing seasons. And your muscle cramps may be caused by too little calcium rather than too much walking. The body does an amazing job of prioritizing health needs. If you aren’t getting the ideal amount of a mineral, the symptoms aren’t severe, but over time the deficiency can really add up. The following are some common minerals adults often do not get enough of and the symptoms that can indicate a deficiency.

  • Calcium: Muscle cramps, nervousness, arm/leg numbness, tooth decay
  • Iron: Cold hands and feet, anemia (pale skin and fatigue), headache
  • Zinc: Fatigue, frequent colds
  • Magnesium: Exhaustion, irritability, poor digestion, anxiousness


Just Like Nature® for superior absorption

Melaleuca redesigned mineral supplements from the ground up to create a one-of-a-kind technology that offers superior absorption and maximum antioxidant protection.

Oligo is the only mineral form that binds minerals to protein and fiber to mimic the way they are naturally found in fruits and vegetables.

The result is a mineral form your body can more easily use to get the nutrition you need to be your best and make the most of every moment.

The Difference Is GC Control

gc-control-differenceDo you want to actively support a healthy weight—along with a healthy cardiovascular system and normal blood sugar metabolism?  It’s time to try GC Control.

Today, 80% of Americans over 25 years old are overweight. Many struggle to find ways to lose weight and 1 in 3 Americans are facing health challenges associated with blood sugar metabolism.

There’s no question: healthy blood sugar management has never been more important. No wonder people all over North America are looking for the clinically tested natural blood sugar support GC Control provides.

The difference starts here

The difference starts with GC Control’s exclusive, patent-pending blend of ingredients. Anchored by Oligo® chromium, this blend includes cinnamon bark extract, Korean red ginseng root, mulberry extract, green tea leaf extract, and sweet potato extract—each with specific natural benefits.

Together inside GC Control, these natural, concentrated ingredients have been clinically shown to help:

  • Support balanced glucose uptake and metabolism in healthy individuals
  • Support normal insulin activity in healthy individuals
  • Slow the absorption of high glycemic foods
  • Promote proper carbohydrate metabolism


Make a Difference?

Officially, it’s a blood sugar support supplement—but for the thousands of people who rely on it every day, GC Control is proving to be the difference in everything from energy support to weight management. Here are three ways GC Control can make a difference for you:

GC ControlMore Energy
What happens when your blood sugar levels rise and dip? Your energy goes down. When your blood sugar levels are constantly high, your body becomes more and more insulin-resistant, which further impairs your ability to properly metabolize blood sugar. As a result, you feel more fatigued. You’re no longer able to get all the energy you need from the foods you eat.

The feeling is similar when your blood sugar levels crash. You’ll feel a lack of energy—and experience hard-to-ignore cravings for more sweets and carbs. The processed carbs and sugars you may eat to regain your energy only continue this seesaw cycle of spiking and crashing.

How does it support more energy? GC Control helps support healthy, stable blood sugar levels thorughout the day, helping you avoid those energy-sapping spikes and crashes altogether. no wonder participants in the clinical study reported feeling more energy and less fatigue as well as reduced appetite.

Easier Weight Management
Not long after GC Control was launched, customers began to notice its effect on their ability to lose weight. By providing support for healthy blood sugar as well as helping to minimize carbohydrate and sugar cravings, GC Control was allowing them to avoid the processed carbs and sugars and the spikes and crashes that made staying on track with weight loss goals such a difficult chore.

But there is even more to it. By addressing healthy insulin response, GC Control can help you keep your body in fat-reduction mode.

How does it promote better fat reduction? When you eat a lot of carbohydrates, you blood sugar can spike, prompting your body to produce large amounts of insulin. That insulin prompts your body to stop breaking down fat for energy and store it instead. If you blood sugar remains high, your body can stay in “fat-storage mode,” where it’s difficult to lose weight.

But when your blood sugar stays within healthy levels, this promotes a healthy insulin response, allowing your body to naturally break down fats and sugars for energy. your weight loss efforts are optimized and weight loss is easier.
