Coconut Oil Is Pretty Amazing - USANA

Your average coconut isn’t much to look at. But lurking underneath the unassuming exterior is a powerful force for good health.

Coconut oil.

Sure it’s a saturated fat, but the latest science is finding that we may have been misled a bit. Saturated fats are a vital nutrient that’s essential for life. Our cell membranes even need these types of fatty acids to function properly.

And recent scientific research shows that the medium-chain triacylglycerols (MCTs) that make up coconut oil may have wide-ranging health benefits. Let’s take a look at a few of them.

Fight Fat with Fat

The way our bodies process the MCTs in coconut oil reduces the opportunity for those fats to deposit into our existing fatty tissues. And it gets even better.

Consumption of MCTs from coconut oil has been shown to increase metabolism by turning up our bodies’ thermostats in a process called thermogenesis. When we produce more heat, it allows the body to utilize more energy. These increases in thermogenesis and metabolism mean our bodies burn more fuel—fat.

And coconut oil also has been shown to make you feel more full. So consuming coconut oil will help you feel satiated for longer, reducing overall food intake.

Guard Your Heart

Coconut oil has a famous fan. You might recognize the name—Dr. Mehmet Oz.

Our favorite cardiothoracic surgeon and host of The Dr. Oz Show says coconut oil is a heart-healthy food. We couldn’t agree more. And the latest scientific literature backs up these claims, too.

Evidence of coconut oil’s cardio-protective properties comes from the MCTs’ ability to support normal blood lipid profiles. That means coconut oil has been shown to support healthy triglyceride levels and the good kind of cholesterol—high-density lipoproteins or HDL.

Our heart is just the start. The process of breaking down coconut oil in the liver produces ketones and short-chain fatty acids—both shown to help support cognition.

Hopefully you understand why the coconut is worth cracking into. So next time you see one, remember all the power hiding right underneath that hard shell.

Immune response is improved with fish oil supplementation and strength training in elderly women - USANA

At a Glance:

A new study shows that measures of immune health are enhanced in elderly women in response to supplementation with fish oil, and further improved in combination with strength training.

Read more about this research below:

Aging is known to negatively affect the immune system, making elderly more vulnerable to disease. Physical activity and diet play roles in moderating immune response, and mild physical activity has been shown to improve immune response.  However, excessive exercise can also have a negative effect on inflammatory response.  

In a new study published in the British Journal of Nutrition, researchers investigated the impact of strength (ST) and fish oil (FO) on the immune system of elderly women.  

The study participants included 45 women with an average age of 64 years.  The women were assigned to one of three groups: strength training without supplementation for 90 days; strength training plus 2 grams of fish oil for 90 days; or fish oil only for 60 days, followed by 90 days of strength training.  The fish oil supplements contained 180 mg of EPA and 120 mg of DHA per gram. Training included various exercises conducted three times per week over a 12 week period. Various measures of immune function were measured before and after both supplementation and exercise.

Strength training alone did not result in any significant changes to measures of immune function. Fish oil supplementation improved functioning of the immune system by increasing the activity of the white blood cells neutrophils and lymphocytes. Production of specific cytokines IL-2 and IFN-g (important small proteins for cell signaling in the immune system) increased by 80% and 60% in response to supplementation. After exercise and supplementation they increased 85% and 88%, respectively. 

The results of this study showed that immune response was not enhanced by strength training alone. Immune response was improved significantly with fish oil supplementation, and further enhanced by the combination of exercise and supplementation.

Higher flavonoid intake is associated with lower mortality rate in older women - USANA

At a Glance:

A new study shows that elderly women who consume the most flavonoids, compounds found in tea, chocolate, red wine, and fruits and vegetables, have lower cardiovascular, cancer and all-cause mortality rates.   

Read more about this research below:

Flavonoids are phytonutrients (plant nutrients) found in tea, chocolate, red wine and many fruits and vegetables. Reduced mortality from vascular disease and some cancers have been linked to high intakes of flavonoid-rich foods and specific flavonoid intake.

In a new study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers explored the potential association between overall flavonoid intake and the risk of all-cause mortality. 

The study participants included 1,063 women over the age of 75 years. Flavonoid intake was estimated using two different sets of food data: the USDA and the Phenol-Explorer database. Over a five-year follow-up there were 129 deaths in the study group.  All-cause, cancer, and cardiovascular deaths were determined. 

Women with the highest flavonoid intake (per USDA) had a 63 percent lower risk of all-cause mortality over the five-year follow-up than those with the lowest flavonoid intake. 

Those with the highest flavonoid intake also had a 66 percent lower risk of cardiovascular death, and a 75 percent lower risk of cancer mortality. The results were nearly identical when using the Phenol-Explorer database to determine flavonoid intake.

Using the two most comprehensive flavonoid databases available, this study provides evidence that a higher intake of flavonoids is linked to a reduction in all-cause mortality in older women, and even more so to cardiovascular and cancer mortality.

Higher intakes of potassium, magnesium and calcium are related to lower stroke risk - USANA

At a Glance: 

The results of a large prospective study show that women with a higher intake of magnesium, potassium and calcium have a lower risk of stroke.  

Read more about this research below:

Calcium, potassium and magnesium are the 3 most abundant minerals in the body. Each play roles in the health of the cardiovascular system.  Although studies have shown these minerals to have benefits related to cardiovascular health, information on the relation of magnesium, potassium and calcium with stroke risk have been inconsistent. These minerals are often found together in foods, and their intakes are strongly correlated.

In a new study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers examined the associations between intakes of magnesium, potassium and calcium with stroke risk in a large population of women.  

The participants included 180,864 women that were participants in two studies, the Nurses Health Study and Nurses Health Study 2 (NHS and NHS 2). Follow-up in the NHS was 30 years, and 22 years for the NHS 2. Food frequency questionnaires were used to document intake of each mineral and a combination of the 3 from both dietary and supplemental sources.  

During the follow-up period, a total of 3,780 stroke cases were documented. Compared to the women in the lowest 20% of magnesium intake the women with the highest 20% of intake had a 13% lower risk of stroke.  Women with the highest potassium intake had an 11% lower risk of stroke.  Women with the highest combined mineral score had a 28% reduced risk of stroke.  

Based on an updated meta-analysis of all prospective studies to date, the risk of stroke was reduced 13% for each 100 mg/day increase in magnesium intake.  For each 1,000 mg/day increase in potassium intake there was a 9% reduction in stroke risk. Calcium intake was not independently associated with stroke risk.

The results of this study show that both magnesium and potassium intakes are inversely associated with stroke risk, and that women with a higher intake of the combination of magnesium, potassium and calcium have a significantly lower risk of total stroke.

This ?#@*&%! Business Doesn’t Work!!!

My new distributor was complaining: "This ?#@*&%! business doesn’t work!!!"

And my new distributor was right. The business doesn’t work.

So I had to tell the new distributor a story. :)

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

You look for the best car for you, and you purchase the car.

But, you never learn how to drive your car.

You never take driving lessons, you never go out driving with your parents, you never read the owner’s manual. You don’t know about those strange pedals on the floor or where to put the key into the ignition.

The only thing you do is make a few attempts at "trial and error" ... you yell at your car and say,

“Drive! Drive!” And your car doesn’t drive itself.

But, you have a vision board ...

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

So, you looked for a network marketing business that was a good fit for you.

You purchased the business and joined.

But you never learned how to make your business work.

The only thing you did was make a few attempts at "trial and error" ... you said the wrong words to a few friends and two cold leads.

And your business didn’t build itself. Your business didn’t work.

* You didn’t come to Saturday trainings.
* You didn’t do three-way calls with your sponsor.
* You didn’t listen to any training CDs.
* You didn’t come with your sponsor while your sponsor went prospecting.
* You didn’t learn how to give a "One-Minute Presentation."
* You didn’t learn "SuperClosing" or any other closing.
* You didn’t learn about the "Colors" ... the four different personalities and how to talk to them.
* You didn’t learn any effective "Ice Breakers" or openings.
* You didn’t learn how to get prospects to beg you for presentations.
* You didn’t learn any effective first sentences.
* You didn’t learn how prospects make decisions in their minds.
* You didn’t learn how to get unlimited appointments.
* You didn’t learn how to stop sounding like a sleazy salesman.
* You didn’t learn any of the "sequences of words" to communicate directly with the prospects.
* You didn’t learn how to use the differences between needs and wants.
* You didn’t learn where and how to locate the best prospects.
* You didn’t learn how to create prospects instantly with effective sentences.
* You didn’t learn the sequences of words that the top leaders use.
* You didn’t learn how to open a presentation.
* You didn’t learn how to build instant rapport with anyone.
* You didn’t learn how to use word pictures.
* You didn’t learn how to talk directly to the subconscious mind of the prospect.
* You didn’t learn why prospects tell you "no" when they should be agreeing with you.
* You didn’t learn the first things you must say to cold prospects.
* You didn’t learn how to locate and create leaders.
* You didn’t learn how to motivate people.
* You didn’t learn how to get your prospect’s unconscious mind to work for them.
* You didn’t learn how to use stories to bypass the two mind filters of prospects.
* You didn’t learn how to quickly capture your prospects’ imagination and attention.
* You didn’t learn how to ...

So stop blaming the business.

The business doesn’t work.

You work.

Carli Lloyd’s Golden Goals

The first goal was a left-foot strike in the sixth minute of overtime. The player, a relative newbie on the international scene, called it “a dream come true, and also kind of shocking at the same time.”

The second goal came screaming off the right foot of an experienced, resurgent star. The shot blazed past the outstretched arms of the goalkeeper and tucked just inside the post.

The results were the same—Olympic gold. And they made USANA Brand Ambassador Carli Lloyd the only soccer player, male or female, to score a gold-medal-winning goal in two Olympics.

But that’s where the similarities end.

Building to Beijing

It took five years for Carli to find the game. Once she did, the soccer ball rarely left her feet.

Like so many others, her dreams were built on the United States Women’s National Team (USWNT) and their historic run to the 1999 Women’s World Cup title. Carli was in the stands for a game, watching her heroes.

Nine years later, she was the one mobbed by teammates after scoring her first gold-medal-winning goal in overtime against Brazil in Beijing. It made Carli the 2008 U.S. Soccer Athlete of the Year and launched her into stardom.

London 2012

Carli, now a stalwart of the USWNT with over 100 international appearances, was suddenly on the bench. But an injury to a teammate during the first match put Carli back on the pitch.

“I wanted to prove my coach and my doubters wrong,” she says. “I waited for my opportunity and I got it and I made sure to seize it.”

Carli scored the winner in that first match and added a goal against Colombia later in the tournament. Then there was the gold-medal match against Japan. Carli scored both U.S. goals, writing her name in the record books.

Tackling Challenges

Those goals will be part of Carli’s legacy, but they don’t tell the whole story. The buildup to these moments are filled with obstacles overcome and failures turned into lessons.

“You don’t learn if things are going well,” Carli says. “You learn from the obstacles and looking at the positives—as hard as that is.”

She almost quit the U.S. under-21 team. Competing with other stars for the first time was almost too hard. But she found a mentor and trainer who helped her refocus on soccer. Carli credits him with transforming her game on and off the field.

There were injuries—like the broken ankle in 2010—missed shots, tough losses, and setbacks. But Carli came out stronger. “I just keep fighting and fighting and raising the bar and exceed limits that don’t even exist yet,” she says.

And that’s the real difference between those two goals. The focus and determination that turns an opportunity into stardom and a little girl with a soccer ball into a legend.

#USANA July 2015 Happenings

Here is a summary of everything you need to know about what is happening in USANA in July, 2015:

Please be sure to review the information about the new USANA Fast Start Enrollment Pack which will be available in the US on July 6th, 2015*

* This is only available in the US, for US Distributors who bring in new US teammates. 

Happy #USANA New Year!

In case you didn’t realize it, today, July 4, 2015, is the beginning of the new annual qualification period for USANA 2015/2016 incentives, including Fortune 25, Growth 25, 2016 International Convention Recognition, etc., etc.

It’s time for all of us to take renewed responsibility and accountability for our USANA businesses, get to work, and do the right things to build our USANA businesses to the level that we have always wanted. 

Here are some ideas to help you get off to the best possible start in your USANA New Year:

·         Just as many people make New Year's resolutions in December and January, make your USANA New Year's resolutions now. Define or re-define your "Why". Set your goals and develop specific plans (Single Daily Actions) to achieve those goals. Focus on achieving them.

·         Re-visit and clean up your prospect list. Prioritize your best prospects and start contacting them today. Clean out the "dead wood" on the list - don't allow them to waste your valuable time. Make one last call to those prospects who have been telling you "maybe" for all these past months (or years). Politely tell them that you won't be contacting them again in the future, but, if they want to be a part of your success story, you would welcome the opportunity to help them create their own success story if they decide to get started now.

·         As always, updated Health and Freedom newspapers, and many other marketing tools, will be introduced at the USANA 2015 Convention. Clean out your USANA tool box now, and get all those tools into the hands of prospects before they are obsolete. Take all of the USANA business building tools that are still in the box in your closet, put them in the middle of your dining room table, and make it your goal to hand out each and every one of them before this year’s Convention. Don't move the stack from the table until you have given them all out. Put some on the front seat of your car, so you don't forget, or get caught talking with a good prospect and nothing to give to them.

·         Finally, September and October are two of the best business building months of the year. Vacations are over and the kids are back in school. Do yourself and your prospects a favor by explaining to your prospects the value of joining USANA with you NOW so that they will be fully trained and ready to hit the ground running in September to take full advantage of that excellent prospecting period.

Will 2016 be your breakthrough year in USANA? 

Only you can decide that, and only you can make it happen.
