Greetings ARIIX Family,
At this time, much of the world is enjoying or has recently enjoyed a holiday season. It is during these special times that we reflect on the things most important to us and the things for which we are grateful, including our family, friends, health and more.
It is common that special symbols accompany these times, which help us to remember the important things in life.
For the past 5,000 years of human history, symbols have been a quick and easy way of sharing information. So much so, in fact, that written language itself can be traced back to basic symbols scratched into surfaces for accounting purposes!
We encounter many symbols in our daily lives and use them to gather and disseminate information. Common symbols we see every day include messages such as:
- Where to go
- When to go
- Places we want to go
- Things we want to do
- And even things we don’t want
During this time of year, as we remember the important things in our lives and enjoy time with family, one symbol we hope you remember and appreciate is the ARIIX Quality Seal.
This seal represents our commitment to provide you with the highest quality products to help ensure the health and wellness of you and yours. During the next few months, we will illustrate in further detail the processes that go into the ARIIX Quality Seal and its accompanying commitment.
In addition, we hope this symbol represents for the whole ARIIX family our commitment to quality and continuous improvement, to ourselves, to each other, to our community and to the world.
We at ARIIX Quality want to wish every member of the ARIIX family a happy and prosperous New Year!
Dr. Strand’s Medical Minute #3: Antioxidants to the Rescue!
You will hear the argument that we need to supplement our diets because of the depleted nutrients in our food today. Although this is true, it is not the main reason to supplement our diets. The main reason is the tremendous number of free radicals we produce. Our stressful lifestyles, polluted environment and over-medicated society cause this generation to handle more free radicals than any previous generation. Remember, it is about balance. You need enough antioxidants available to manage the number of free radicals you produce.
The medical literature now shows us that the optimal level of antioxidants and supporting nutrients needed to prevent or decrease the risk of chronic degenerative diseases is much greater than the amount we can obtain from our depleted food supply. Our best option to prevent or slow down this process of oxidative stress is to take high-quality, complete and balanced nutritional supplements for the rest of our lives.
Consider a wood fireplace. It usually burns just fine, but occasionally a spark or hot cinder shoots out and burns a little hole in your carpet. Over the months and years, you will have a damaged carpet in front of your fireplace. Liken the fireplace to the furnace of your cell and the hot cinders to free radicals. Your carpet is your body. Whatever part of your body wears out first is the type of disease you will develop. If it is your brain, you could develop Alzheimer’s, Dementia or Parkinson’s disease. If it is your eyes, you could develop a cataract or macular degeneration. If it is your arteries, you could develop a heart attack or stroke.
You are not defenseless against this process. Antioxidants are like the fine wire mesh or glass doors you place in front of your fireplace. The sparks are still going to fly, but your carpet — your body — is protected. This is the key. To protect your body, you want enough antioxidants on board to handle the number of free radicals you produce. The best way to achieve this goal is to take high-quality, complete and balanced nutritional supplements.
This month, we’re happy to announce that our manufacturing team has been able to reduce the amount of material used in the production of the Jouvé™ Dark Spot Corrector & Brightening Cream bottle while maintaining the same function and product quality, thus reducing its overall environmental impact! Consequently, you may notice a small change in the size of the silver pump and bottle (about 2mm each).
This slightly smaller bottle contains the same amount of high-quality brightening cream; the change merely eliminated a small amount of excess bottle material. This change demonstrates our focus on continuous improvement without compromising product quality.
