Old Man Winter has finally arrived in full force! For some, he is a pleasant and kindly grandfather who brings nothing more than long nights, chilly air, and an excuse to break out the skis or cozy up with your favorite hot beverage. To others, he’s a joy killing curmudgeon whose arrival marks the beginning of shivers, colds, snow shoveling, and icy roads. Whatever he is to you, you’ll benefit from some great Melaleuca products that can make your wintertime magical!
Before we get to these great products, keep in mind that Melaleuca just announced all-new products and formulations, including an all-new GC Control formula and a completely brand-new product, Vitality for Life Berberine, which helps support healthy blood sugar levels.*
You’ll want to take a closer look at these new Melaleuca innovations, which may help you accomplish your New Year’s health resolutions. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, maintaining healthy blood sugar levels can help delay or even prevent serious health problems, like heart disease, kidney disease, and loss of vision.
Aside from the new innovations, what other Melaleuca products can help you enjoy wintertime?
Cold air often means dry skin, and although staying out of that cold air can help, Jack Frost’s influence can still be felt even when you’re staying cozy within the walls of your home. Tell him to take a hike with Renew Lotion!
In two separate clinical trials conducted by Hilltop Research in Winnipeg, Canada, Renew outperformed Eucerin and kept skin better moisturized. What’s the secret? A perfect ratio of natural allantoin, USP-grade petrolatum, and plant-based glycerin.
It’s no wonder Renew Lotion has earned an outstanding 4.9 out of 5 on Melaleuca.com, with more than 2,150 reviews from real customers!
“Best lotion I’ve ever used!” says Cheryl. “This is the only lotion we’ve ever used that has kept [my husband] from getting dry cracked fingertips in the winter!”
Nothing beats sitting by a window to watch the snow fall while you drink something warm—and it’s a bonus if that warm drink can also help boost your immune system! Packed with 1,200 mg of vitamin C (more than 14 oranges!) and 15 mg of zinc in each serving, Activate-C is a must-have for any cold day. You certainly don’t have to drink it warm, but where’s the fun in that? Lattes and hot chocolate are great, but they won’t give you the benefits of Activate-C! Get a natural immunity boost this winter with Activate-C Immune Complex™!
Vitality Vitamin D3
Less sunlight in winter means less vitamin D production in our bodies. If you live north of the 37th parallel, then you can be particularly at risk of low vitamin D levels. For most people, the vitamin D in Vitality Multivitamin & Mineral (also found in the Peak Performance Pack) should be sufficient. Many experts agree that 600–800 IU (15–20 mcg) of vitamin D is all that is necessary.
For those who have reason to be especially concerned about their vitamin D levels, Melaleuca offers Vitality D3, which offers a dose of 2,000 IU (50 mcg) of vitamin D.
Current scientific research shows that, for most adults, large doses of vitamin D don’t result in increased health benefits compared to moderate doses. So use your vitamin D wisely! Unless instructed to do so by a competent medical professional, don’t exceed 4,000 IU per day, which is generally considered the safe upper limit.
Pure Bath Bombs
There’s certainly no bad time to take a relaxing bath, especially during the chilly wintertime! Melaleuca’s Pure Bath Bombs are powered by Pure Peace Aromatic Blend to ensure your bath is tranquil and filled with the aroma of tangerine, orange, patchouli, and blue tansy.
This fizzy bath bomb dissolves in warm water and is made with natural essential oils and skin-softening ingredients. It just might become your favorite way to unwind after a long winter day!
Don’t Forget the Little Things
Dry skin also means chapped lips. Keep them hydrated with Sun Shades® Lip Balm, which uses jojoba, cocoa butter, beeswax, and vitamin E to keep lips soft. And it’s available in four flavors—Mountain Mint, Pina Colada, Vanilla Bean, and Cranberry Tangerine.
When you find that the winter has gotten the best of you, reach for CounterAct® Cough Drops to help soothe your throat. Natural menthol and Melaleuca Oil help to effectively clear nasal passages.
Additionally, we now offer an all-new cookbook that features R3 reset-friendly recipes. You’ll be able to eat great, lose weight, and achieve higher levels of wellness than you thought possible. Featuring more than 170 recipes for every time of the day, many of which incorporate Melaleuca and Riverbend Ranch products, you’re sure to discover recipes to fit your lifestyle and your weight management needs!
Don’t be had by winter! Keep your skin hydrated, your immune system strong, and your emotions bright!
