Ever wonder what Olympic athletes take to stay in optimal condition while working out 8 hours a day? With so much drug testing involved, it’s hard to navigate through all the loaded supplements that claim to be the panacea to all ailments. We spent a lunch with Gold winning Olympiads like Sanya Richards-Ross – one of the fastest women in the world, Jenn Suhr – World’s #1 pole vaulter, and Jessica Long – Paralympic Swimming Gold World Champion – and found that they all take Amway’s Nutrilite supplements which are NSF certified for Sport.
Nutrilite was founded by Carl Rehnborg who was living in China in the early 1920s and noticed the connection between the Chinese diet and their overall health. He started using the local Chinese herbs, grasses and vegetables in a broth and discovered the nutritional benefits of these foods. Everything used in the Nutrilite vitamins and supplements is derived from organic farms and uses whole plant concentrates to capture the powerful compounds known as phytonutrients that are found in plants, herbs, fruits, and vegetables. The secret to maintaining a healthy diet is in staying away from brown and beige foods and eat foods rich in color.
Green foods like broccoli, beans, and zucchini have isoflavins, lutein and egcg that support cell, lung and liver heath. Purple foods like grapes, beets, and plums have resveratrol and anythocanidins to support the heart and antioxidant protection. Red vegetables and fruits like tomatoes and watermelon have lycopene and ellagic acid to support prostate and DNA health. Yellow and orange foods like carrots and cantaloupe have beta carotene, hesperidin, and alpha carotene to support the immune system, skin hydration, and eyes. White and gray foods like cauliflower, turnips, mushrooms, garlic and onions have allicin and quercetin to maintain healthy bones and circulatory health.
