Boosting Metabolism

Metabolism is the term for all the chemical reactions in your body.  These chemical reactions keep your body alive and functioning.

However, the word metabolism is often used interchangeably with metabolic rate, or the amount of calories you burn.

The higher it is, the more calories you burn and the easier it is to lose weight and keep it off.

Having a high metabolism can also give you energy and make you feel better.

Did you know that we provide the right foods in our smoothies, juices and soups that boost your metabolism?

What are some ways to boost your metabolism?  Eat breakfast. Drink more cold water.  Eat protein with every meal.  Stand up more.  Exercise with high intensity.  Drink green tea and eat spicy foods.  Get a good night sleep and replace your cooking oil with coconut oil.  Get more Vitamin D.  Eat organic foods.  The list can consist of lots of things, however we may not know what is best for our particular body.  That is where a supplement can come in handy!

Are you looking for a way to supercharge a sluggish metabolism? Give it a kick-start with Genesis PURE’s Metabolic ONE, a unique blend of naturally occurring amino acids, nutrients, herbs, botanicals and caffeine that work together to help support your weight management goals.

Metabolic ONE naturally supports an increase in metabolism. It helps your body adapt to physical and emotional pressures helping reduce stress eating. In addition, it allows your body to utilize insulin more effectively, helping to curb appetite.*

It contains the ingredient L-theanine, an amino acid found in green tea. Green tea naturally stimulates metabolism through its caffeine content, but also provides a soothing feeling. The result is a calming effect which helps diminish a person’s cravings for unhealthy foods.

Metabolic ONE also contains an excellent source of vitamin B6 and B5, essential for energy metabolism. The supplement is gluten and preservative free.

While the reasons people gain weight are many and varied, stress is an often overlooked reason why people struggle with their weight. By adding L-theanine, we are able to help people better deal with everyday stressors. As a coping mechanism, people often seek food as a means of handling their stress and when they do, they most often reach for high fat, high sugar foods. Metabolic ONE is ideally formulated to boost metabolism and minimize the desire for unhealthy foods.

This week’s special is Metabolic One which is regular price is $37.27 but this week we want to jump-start your metabolism and offer it at the special price of $31.99.  Save this week! 

Until next time, eat and stay healthy!

So what is new here at Wheatgrass this week?  Pumpkin Smoothies are back!  Made with real Pumpkin, Mango and Banana and spices, sprinkled with Cinnamon will enlighten your taste buds and bring you back for more.  It is a seasonal smoothie that everyone loves.

What is coming up this week?

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. It is appropriate, therefore, that the nation pay tribute on Labor Day to the creator of so much of the nation’s strength, freedom, and leadership — the American worker.  WE WILL BE OPEN!  

LOYAL MEMBERSHIP SPECIAL – Come in on Labor Day and get two punches with purchase of juice or smoothie.  Just say the special phrase “Hit me baby one more time”. That is a $6.50 savings and worth a FREE purchase!

Learn how you can become YL Member to save on wholesale pricing!

BODY SCAN AVAILABLE!  Takes only 4 minutes to get your results.

LET’S TALK JUICE

How many raw fruits and vegetables do you eat in a day?  2 maybe 3?  How many could you eat?  (Be honest…your stomach only has so much room!) What happens when you drink raw juice?  When you juice raw fruits and veggies, you are getting the full nutritional value of the fresh, raw fruits and vegetables–more than the average person can fit into his/her diet normally!

Think about our Snazzy Rabbit for instance, basically it’s a handful of frozen mango and pineapple and we add to it, juice of two oranges and a lemon as well as s couple of carrots.  WOW!  What a Vitamin C Boost!

When you juice, your body absorbs the nutrients better.  Why?  There’s no plant fiber to get in the way…pretty much just liquid vitamins at this point.  The process of juicing helps to begin to break down vegetables, making it easier for our body to digest them.  When we eat raw vegetables, especially fibrous vegetables, our bodies cannot break them down fully, so we miss out on a lot of nutrition.  Juicing means that we get nutrition into our bodies, where it belongs!

Did you know that if you chew your juice and swish it around in your mouth you create more saliva therefore getting the most out of your digestion?

Juicing is the easy way to get your six to eight servings of vegetables a day.  Cooked vegetables lose nutrition; raw vegetables pack a powerful nutritional punch.  You can get an entire day’s worth of vegetables in a single glass of vegetable juice.
When you cook and eat vegetables or have a salad, you tend to use the same greens and the same vegetables all the time, right?  It is so easy to fall into a comfortable pattern!  Diversify your diet–start juicing!  Because you are juicing more than one vegetable at a time, you can mix and match your flavors, so your choices are endless when it comes to flavor combinations…and nutrient combinations as well!  Have you tasted our Kitchen Sink?  Lots of flavors and lots of vitamins in one drink, and if you like beet flavor Turn up the Beet is another favorite.

Don’t be afraid to try something more than just a Smoothie here at Wheatgrass but be adventurous and give your digestive system a break with a Juice for lunch or in the afternoon for a quick pick me up!

Don’t forget we do offer our 1,2, and 3 day Juice Cleanse!

Want Optimal Health WITH WATER

Wow, what a week!  Back the school has got us all back into a routine again! With that said, sports play a big important part in school.  We want our children to be eating healthy and drinking plenty of water for optimal health.

Drinking pure water every day is a key component of optimal health. Unfortunately, many make the mistake of forgoing water for other types of fluids, most of which have added ingredients that will not do your health any favors.

_________________________________________________________________________

We just got another testimony from a customer who drinks our Kangen 9.5 water:

“Kangen water has helped me lose weight, and I have never felt better…. I can tell the difference when I don’t drink the Kangen water”! 

________________________________________________________________________

YOUR BODY NEEDS WATER

Your body is composed of about 65 percent water, which is needed for a number of physiological processes and biochemical reactions, including but not limited to:

  • Blood circulation
  • Metabolism
  • Regulation of body temperature
  • Waste removal and detoxification

Once your body has lost between one to two percent of its total water content, it will signal its needs by making you feel thirsty. Using thirst as a guide to how much water you need to drink is one obvious way to ensure your individual needs are met, day-by-day.

However, by the time your thirst mechanism actually kicks in, you’re already in the early stages of dehydration, so you don’t want to ignore the initial sensations of thirst.

Hunger—sugar cravings in particular—can also be a sign that your body is crying for water, so as noted in the featured video, when you feel hungry, drink a glass of water first.

So, in addition to thirst, which is an obvious signal, other signals indicating you need to drink more water include:

  • Fatigue and/or dizziness
  • Foggy thinking and poor concentration
  • Muscle cramps
  • Dull, dry skin and/or pronounced wrinkles
  • Infrequent urination; dark concentrated urine
  • Bad breath
  • Mood swings
  • Chills
  • Back or joint ache
  • Constipation
  • Headache
  • Sugar cravings

Severe dehydration can be life threatening, but even mild dehydration can cause problems ranging from headaches and irritability to impaired cognition. It can also affect your sports performance, as noted in a recent CNN report.

CHRONIC DEHYDRATION MAY AFFECT AND DAMAGE YOUR ORGANS

Over a long-term period of daily drinking insufficient water, chronic diseases may develop:

Asthma and Allergies:  When dehydrated, your body will restrict airways as a means to conserve water. In fact, the rate of histamine produced by your body increases exponentially as the body loses more and more water.

Bladder or Kidney Problems:  With a dehydrated body, the accumulation of toxins and acid waste creates an environment where bacteria thrive, resulting in the bladder and kidney to be more prone to infection, stones formation, inflammation and pain.

Constipation:  When short of water, the colon is one of the primary regions the body draws water from, in order to provide fluids for other critical body functions. Without adequate water, wastes move through the large intestines much more slowly or sometimes not at all, resulting in constipation.

Digestive Disorders:  A shortage of water and alkaline minerals such as calcium and magnesium, can lead to a number of digestive disorders, including ulcers, gastritis and acid reflux.

Headaches and Migraines:  Headaches and migraines could be a sign of dehydration. Being dehydrated deprives fluid sacks around your brain cells to undergo pressure.

dehydration effectsHigh Blood Pressure:  The blood is normally about 92% water when the body is fully hydrated. When dehydrated, the blood becomes thicker causing resistance to blood flow and resulting in elevated blood pressure.

High Cholesterol:  When the body is dehydrated, it will produce more cholesterol to prevent water loss from the cells.

Joint Pain or Stiffness:  All joints have cartilage padding which is composed mainly of water. When the body is dehydrated, cartilage is weakened and joint repair is slow resulting in pain and discomfort.

Skin Disorders:  Dehydration impairs the elimination of toxins through the skin and makes it more vulnerable to all types of skin disorders, including dermatitis and psoriasis, as well as premature wrinkling and discoloration.

Sweet-tooth Cravings:  Your body needs water to help process nutrients, including glycogen. When you are dehydrated, your body may be signaling to you that you need sugar, which often presents itself as sugar cravings for cakes and other unhealthy goodies. Drink water or a freshly extracted juice instead.

Weight Gain, Constantly Feeling Hungry:  When dehydrated, cells are depleted of energy to burn fuel. As a result, people feel tired and hungry, leading them to eat more when in reality, the body is just dehydrated.

THE COLOR OF YOUR URINE A HYDRATION MARKER

The oft-repeated guideline is to drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day, but considering the fact that your water needs can vary significantly from day-to-day depending on factors such as your activity level and weather conditions, this suggestion may be inadequate.

In reality, it’s virtually impossible to determine a general guideline that will apply to everyone, all the time. As noted in the video above, the Institute of Medicine recommends a much higher average water intake, suggesting women drink 2.7 liters or 91 ounces of water per day, and men 3.7 liters, or 125 ounces.

The featured study used urine concentration to evaluate hydration status, and looking at the color of your urine is perhaps one of the best ways to track your individual hydration status from day-to-day.

Concentrated, dark-colored urine is a sign that your kidneys are retaining fluids to maintain your bodily functions, and is a good indication that you need more water. Ideally, you’ll want to drink enough water to turn your urine a light-colored yellow.

Also please realize that riboflavin (vitamin B2; also found in most multi-vitamins) will turn your urine a bright, almost fluorescent yellow. So if you’re taking supplements containing B2, it may be more difficult to judge your water needs by the color of your urine.

Frequency of urination can also be used to judge your water intake. A healthy person urinates on average about seven or eight times a day. If your urine is scant or if you haven’t urinated in several hours, that too is an indication that you’re not drinking enough.

DRINK PURE WATER TOWARDS HEALTH

It’s important to recognize that your body loses water throughout each day, even when you’re not sweating, and that you need to constantly replenish this fluid loss. While soda, fruit juices, sports drinks, energy drinks, and other beverages typically contain a fair amount of water, they are poor substitutes for pure water, and generally do not count toward this requirement.

Soda and energy drinks, for example, are high in caffeine, which acts as a diuretic that will actually dehydrate you, so they’re a terrible choice for quenching your thirst. In fact, have you noticed that you tend to get thirstier the more soda you drink? The sugar is addictive, which contributes to this phenomenon, but dehydration also plays a role.

Worse yet, sodas, fruit juices, sports drinks, and other sweetened beverages typically contain processed fructose, which is a primary driver of obesity and metabolic dysfunction. Just one can of soda per day can add as much as 15 pounds to your weight over the course of a single year.

One soda per day also increases your risk of diabetes by 85 percent, and frequent soda drinkers have higher cancer risk. So to stay hydrated, drinking pure water is key. This is true when exercising as well. Many still believe that sports drinks are the best alternative to replenish lost fluids and electrolytes when working up a sweat, but that’s simply not true.

WHY SPORTS DRINKS ARE BEST AVOIDED

The majority of people believe that sports drinks like Gatorade are far better to drink than water when you’re dehydrated because of electrolyte replacement. Avoid this common mistake, as nothing could be further from the truth. More important than the electrolytes are sugar, and most sports drinks contain two-thirds or even more sugar than sodas, typically in the form of high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS).  WE HAVE A BETTER SOLUTION! 

Many also contain artificial flavors and food coloring, none of which contribute to optimal health. Fructose is primarily metabolized by your liver, because that is the only organ that has the transporter for it and is the main cause of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).

In your liver, fructose is metabolized much like alcohol, causing mitochondrial and metabolic dysfunction in the same way as ethanol and other toxins. And just like alcohol, your body turns fructose directly into fat—hardly what you need after a good workout.

If your sports drink is low-calorie and sugar-free, it likely contains artificial sweeteners, which may be even worse for you than fructose. In addition to that, consuming sugar after exercise will negatively affect your insulin sensitivity—and your human growth hormone (HGH) production if you’re doing high intensity exercise. Most sports drinks also contain high amounts of sodium (processed salt), which is meant to replenish the electrolytes you lose while sweating.

It is very easy and inexpensive to address the electrolyte replacement issue simply by adding a small amount of natural, unprocessed salt, such as Himalayan salt, to your water.  Contrary to processed salt, this natural salt contains 84 different minerals and trace minerals that your body needs for optimal function. Another excellent option when you’re sweating profusely is coconut water.

BEVERAGES THAT PROMOTE POOR HEALTH

While many have become savvy about the health hazards of soda, many are still under the mistaken belief that boxed fruit juice is a healthy beverage. This is a dangerous misconception fueling rising rates of weight gain, obesity, fatty liver disease, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes in the United States and other developed nations—especially among children.

One eight-ounce glass of orange juice has about eight full teaspoons of sugar, and at least 50 percent of that sugar is fructose. That’s almost as much as a can of soda, which contains approximately 10 teaspoons of sugar.

Fruit drinks, on the other hand, will likely contain high-fructose corn syrup, just as soda does. In fact, soda giants like Coca-Cola, Pepsi, and Dr. Pepper are actually the parent companies to most sugary drinks on the market, and that includes fruit juices.

If you and your family drink soft drinks and/or fruit juice regularly, one of the best things you can do for your overall health is to switch to clean fresh water or fresh raw juice or smoothies made from real food. Fortunately, stopping soda is one of the easiest health habits to make for most people.

Events For The Community

When I was a little girl, my mother always told me that I could do anything I set my heart to do.  My passion was and has been to help others.  In fact most of you know me as owner of Wheatgrass Juice Bar, the Young Living Oil Distributer, Legacy Owensboro Pastors wife, a Counselor, a Photographer or as a friend.  A few years ago, I designed my purpose statement as to “Help others find abundant living in all areas of their life”.  This is my heart, this is my passion.

I love getting out into the community to share our products and educate people not only on products but also encourage people to get out of their comfort zone and try something new, learn something new or experience life in a new direction.

This past month has been quite a move for us here at Wheatgrass in our new location and we appreciate everyone stopping in to see the place as well as sharing our photos on social media.  We also enjoyed our interview with Theresa Rowe Shaped by Faith.

Opening our doors to after hours event has also been a success for small groups looking for a great place to have meetings or small gatherings, so if you are looking for a place to have your next gathering give us a call!

 

 

This month the Chamber Breakfast invited us to participate in their Health Fair, who partnered with Owensboro Health.  The focus was on small businesses and how they could incorporate health and wellness into their work routines and lifestyles.

It was great giving out free samples of Green Lemonade and Snazzy Rabbit as well as our famous tasting Ginger Shots.   We gave out samples of the Kangen 9.5 Alkaline water too.  Let’s keep Owensboro healthy!

Look for us at Edge Fit every last Monday of the month for membership appreciation day.  We offer two kinds of juices for members!

Wheatgrass was also featured on the back of the programs of the Miss, Teen and Pre-Teen Daviess County Pageants, supporting our young women and our yearly Fair.

Coming up, Tuesday, August 1st, our doors open up to another event for introducing whole body care with our PURE product line here at Wheatgrass starting at 5.  Les Magness from Arkansas will be here to answer any question as he explains our products in detail as well as share some amazing testimonies of how these organic products have helped hundreds of people improve their quality of life.  Some of these products will be listed in the 2018 Physician Desk Reference.  So if you are interested in hearing more, come and grab a free juice to learn more!

Our biggest Celebration, we definitely want you to come and be a part!  Thursday, August 24th at 12:15pm we will be having our Ribbon Cutting!

We just finished our three weeks at our new location 3500 Villa Point Suite 102 and finally our signs went up this week!  So what does that mean???  Let’s Celebrate with a DISCOUNT for our Loyal Members!

For the week of July 24th – July 29th, when you come in and say the SECRET WORDS ” Let’s Celebrate!” You get 10% SAVINGS of anything and everything in the entire store including our top of the line supplements or essential oils!

With the move, I have been very busy trying to get the new location all prepared to create a space of health and wellness and a place to come and enjoy lunch at one of our tables or bar.  We love our new additions and our new items on the lunch menu and the grab and go cooler items.

Have you seen our new slender bottles?  We love the fresh new logo and look!  Come in and grab our cold pressed juices for a quick pick me up or save for later for the afternoon slumps.  This week since it has been sooooo hot, we will also offer our smoothie popsicles for only $2!  So don’t forget! 

One of the other things we are really excited about is our new packets of Matcha! HealthTrim® Matcha Vegan Shake is here!  I met the gal who owns the Certified Organic Matcha farm at the bottom of Mt Fuji.  Why is this so important and why is this the best matcha on the planet?  It is grown in Volcano soil which is rich in nutrients to produce the riches most powerful Matcha.

This nutritious meal replacement combines premium, ceremonial-quality green tea leaves with sacha inchi and chlorella to help support weight management and sustained energy. Exclusively available in vanilla and dark chocolate.

Matcha is combined with the power of sacha inchi, a whole food that provides fiber, iron, all essential amino acids, and omega fatty acids for sustained energy. We also include chlorella, an ingredient rich in antioxidants and other phytonutrients with potent, free radical fighting capabilities.

The Power of HealthTrim Matcha Vegan Shake:
