A Visit Nutrilite Health Institute Center for Optimal Health

This was a tour which we were waiting for. We got appointment for facility visit on April 30,2011(Saturday) 9.00 am .So we started from home by early morning around 7.00 am. It took approximately 2 hours drive  to reach the Buena Park where the Nutrilite  Health Center is located.

I am really thrilled by seeing the 33,00 square feet building itself. The entire facility is distributed in both the sides of a rail track and have a bridge connecting the two over the rail tracks. I am sure that it is not easy to get permission for such a private bridge over rail tracks. By 9.00 am, there were lot of people ready for the visit. For the tour, they divided us into teams and a guide is assigned to each team.Our team consists of 7 members.The tour started with a video show "Perfect Balance"- a short film which was explaining about the importance of balance in nature and how they are maintaining it in the nutrilite farms across the globe .We came to know that Nutrilite has farms in Brazil,Mexico,California,Washington and there were video footage which was showing the various farming techniques involved there. Once the video show is over, our tour started.

The tour was an overview of manufacturing and researching of Nutrilite products.The main attraction is 24 foot high DNA model which depict all fruits and vegetables in Nutrilite Products.
They also showed the models which teaches about the importance of fruits,vegetables and suppliments in daily life.

There was a session explaining the history of Nutrilite, how it started and progressed in course of time.They took us the  Quality department where the quality of the raw materials and the finished products are tested. Then they took us to various labs like Physical Testing Lab,Microbiology Lab and Vitamins Analysis Lab. Next they give us a brief description about tableting process and showed us the Stability chamber where Nutrilite Products is exposed to extreme heat and moisture for 13 weeks to test the durability.

Finally the guide take us to the Packaging section where Products are labelled and packaged in a orderly manner. Multiple conveyor belts are where each one belt meant  to one particular country.
  Then the products are send to differnt nations including United States and India.

The tour was really enjoying and knowledgable regarding the importance of supplements for a Healthy Life and how reliable the Nutrilite products are.  It also showcased the effort Nutrilite is putting for maintaining the quality of  their products.

Why Protein is Important in our Life???

Protein helps our body to build muscles and strong immune system.There are many types of protein that play different types of important role in our body. For example collagen is a protein and it gives the strength, elasticity and composition of our hair and skin. Some of the good protein sources are lentils, low-fat dairy products, nuts, seeds, peas. Protein plays a leading role in your body’s growth and maintenance.Because your body does not store excess protein,daily intake is necessary.Unfortunately,many protein sources-such as red meat,cheese,eggs and whole milk-also have high levels of fat and cholestrol.

How much protein a day?
Protein requirements are complicated because the amount we need changes with age.

  • Infants require about 10 grams a day.
  • Teenage boys need up to 52 grams a day.
  • Teenage girls need 46 grams a day.
  • Adult men need about 56 grams a day.
  • Adult women need about 46 grams a day.

One important exception is pregnant or lactating women, when the recommended intake rises to 71 grams of protein a day.

Today we are living in a busy world,no one able to manage a balanced diet .So here comes the importance of protein powder.

Why nutrilite protein powder is important?
Nutrilite protein powder is made from the best source of protein available which is soy.
Nutrilite protein powder has a high protein content (80%) mainly derived from vegetable/milk source. Moreover Nutilite protein powder contains 9 essential Amino acids which are the building blocks of the body.For a healthy life protein is necessary.A study showed that elderly people whose diets provided slightly less than the recommended amount of protein suffered less bone loss if they consumed an additional 20 grams of protein per day.A doctor can help people assess their protein intake.
That is why we have to take Nutrilite protein powder daily in our life. as we are in fast moving life it is very difficult for us to maintain our diet.

Is it OK to eat a lot more protein than the minimum recommendations?

This is the crucial question for people on diets that are higher in protein than usual, as low-carb diets tend to be. In a review of the research, the National Academy of Sciences reported that the only known danger from high-protein diets is for individuals with kidney disease. After careful study, they recommend that 10 percent to 35 percent of daily calories come from protein. They point out that increased protein could be helpful in treating obesity. There is also accumulating evidence that extra protein may help prevent osteoporosis.

Extra protein can be broken down into glucose in a process called gluconeogenesis. On low carb diets, this happens continually. One benefit of obtaining glucose from protein is that it is absorbed into the bloodstream very slowly, so it doesn’t cause a rapid blood sugar increase.

Bahai Temple,Chicago

On last Sunday,We immediately planned to go to Bahai House of Worship.Actually we don't know much about the Bahai faith.When we reach there ,i got astonished by its great architecture from outside.
I thought there will be idols for worshipping ,but inside it was just a prayer hall with out any idols or lamps. It looked like a meditation hall. It was so large and tall. If you look up, you can see the center of the dome. There were lot of good inspiration quotes written on the walls. I checked again.. Ya, I am right. There was no idols.
Then i got keen interest to know about Bahai Faith. I enquired more about it from the visiting center.
      Bahai Faith-:"A religion of Unity".The faith founder was Baha ullah(persian).Baha ullah claimed to be an independent messenger from god.His life,work,and influence parallel to that of Abraham, Krishna, Moses, Buddha, Christ and Muhammad.
We can see symbols of many religions on the pillar of Bahai House of Worship. See the picture below.
It was surprising that i came to know that there is a Bahai house of worship in India too.
There are seven Bahai temples in world, in which each temple has its own distinctive design,they all conform to a consistent theme : an area of gardens encircles a nine sided structure covered by a single dome.(symbolizing the unity of all people and religions under God)
Anyway it was a nice trip.. I got an opportunity to view a marvelous architecture and learn about a new religion.
