Top Fitness Trends and the PURE GPS Support to
Level up your Fitness Game in 2020

A lot of fitness trends have come and gone over the last 10 years—some effective and worthwhile, and some we could have done without. (Goodbye forever, waist trainers and full-body sweatsuits!) The good news is that a fresh decade is upon us, and it’s already looking like it could be your healthiest and happiest year yet.

Thanks to the digital fitness boom, you’ll be able to get a solid workout from anywhere—not to mention have the coolest high-tech equipment and wearables right at your fingertips. There’s also a change in focus happening: Instead of just working out to get a six-pack, the mental benefits of exercise are equally important, if not more so, than the physical. Here’s a quick look at the top 5 fitness trends you can expect to see everywhere in 2020.

1.  All-in-one fitness 
Typically, you’re left going to multiple places to stay healthy, from hitting the gym to booking appointments with your nutritionist and doctors. That might not be the case in the future, though, as more health professionals join forces.

Instead of having to go to different places for your fitness, health, and wellness needs, you’ll be seeing more trainers, dietitians, physical therapists, and doctors working together under the same roof. By eliminating the gray area between these practitioners, it’ll be easier for you to get the results you’re looking for.

2.  Live workout experiences
You don’t even have to leave your house to work out in real time with other fitness buffs. In 2020, it will be even easier to have a live workout experience in your own space no matter which kind of exercise you enjoy. This trend will allow people to take their favorite fitness experiences and stay connected with their workout communities whenever they want, wherever they are. Right now, you can already take live spinning classes with Peloton, livestream fitness classes through ClassPass Live, and more. And the options are only growing.

3.  On-the-go wellness
If you have trouble squeezing in workouts while you’re on the road, that’s only going to get easier in 2020 with opportunities available right on your phone. According to health experts, the demand for on-the-go wellness is only increasing—especially around fitness.

As we get busier, we want to have our favorite workouts on our phones and at our fingertips so we can work out consistently no matter where we are. Going digital also makes boutique fitness more accessible and affordable. In most cases, it gives everyone the access to top trainers for less than the price of just one class.

4.  Community-driven fitness
It’s so much easier to stick with a workout plan when you have a community of like-minded individuals by your side, leading to the trend of community-driven fitness is really going to take off in 2020. As a society, we are seeking connection true now more than ever.

Instead of just hitting the gym by yourself, you can easily connect with others, thanks to the rise in live-streamed classes, sweaty selfie check-ins, social media challenges, and online chats within fitness apps. Having a team to cheer you on and empathize with where you are in your journey helps make those tough days more achievable.

5.  Virtual trainers
Maybe getting a trainer has been out of the question in the past because of the sky-high fees that can come with that one-on-one time. But if you go the virtual route and work with a trainer through your screen, you can get the same attention and guidance for a fraction of the cost.

16 Best Workout Apps to Help You Get in Shape1

Work smarter, not harder
So you’re ready to mix up your workout routine for 2020, but how can you make your new workouts really work for you?

Here’s a trend we can all get behind: doing less of what we hate, and more of what we love. Mandi Em of Healthy Living for Hot Messes says 2020 is “the year of the nature walk, the lazy hike, or the living room dance party.”2

Science shows us that getting out into nature is immensely good for our bodies and minds, says Em, which makes nature “the original gym.”

“Also, it’s free and comes with complimentary endorphins! Literally just go for a walk,” says Em. “That’s your step one. Kettlebells can wait. What 2020 needs is people looking at where they are at and taking it to the next level instead of bounding to the top step, falling short, hating it, hating themselves, and giving up entirely.”







The Skinny on Detoxing: A New Beginning

After spending the last month enjoying one too many cookies, peppermint mochas and spiked eggnogs, eliminating last year’s dietary sins seems like the perfect start to a new year. But with all of the juice fasts, heat wraps, supplements and teas promising quick weight loss and a detoxified body, how do you know what really works?

A well-laid out plan is the key to seeing results. Whether you want to just have more energy and feel healthier or you’re ready to finally shed those unwanted pounds, PURE offers two comprehensive, all-natural Detox Systems:  the 7-day Detox and the 28-day Detox, both of which include products that nutritionally support the body’s natural health-function processes. In just one week, you can feel refreshed and renewed—hitting the reset button on a healthy new beginning.

For a great way to kick-start healthier habits, begin with the 7-Day Detox. Then, keep your momentum going with the 28-Day Detox  for a full metabolic reset. Whichever program you choose, you’ll experience better digestion, more energy, improved mental clarity, fewer sugar cravings and reduced body fat*—putting yourself on track to a lifestyle of Whole Health.

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, it might be time to Detox

  • Low energy
  • Mental fog or trouble focusing
  • Trouble losing weight
  • Periodic digestive upset
  • Depression
  • Cravings for sugar, starches, salt and bread
  • Dry skin & hair, eczema

Where do toxins come from?
Toxins enter the body through inhalation, through the gastrointestinal tract and through the skin. Painting the house, varnishing furniture, dry cleaning and cooking are all sources of indoor air pollutants. Household cleaning products and toiletries also contribute to toxins in the air we breathe. Other sources that lead to internal toxins include agricultural chemicals, fumes and air pollution.

Additionally, excessive caffeine and alcohol promotes increased toxins in the body. When we eat bread, cheese and processed meat, we are ingesting salt, saturated fats, chemicals, hormones and antibiotics that put a strain on the liver and can also cause high blood pressure, bloating and kidney problems. Medications, food additives, preservatives, food colorings, sweeteners and flavor enhancers contribute to internal toxins as well.

Why Cleanse?
Fighting these toxins is at the forefront of the PURE Natural Detox System. The plan’s products  work to the eliminate these toxins from the body, promoting digestive health, while maintaining normal intestinal function. Another product by PURE that supports your body’s ability to detox internal and environmental toxins every day is Daily Detox. It’s a gentle blend of herbs that improves digestion and bowel elimination while increasing vitality and enhancing immunity.* Daily Detox is the perfect natural bridge between  Cleanse cycles.

For optimal results, be sure to eat a healthy diet, get regular cardiovascular exercise, hydrate with water, eliminate alcohol, coffee, refined sugars and saturated fats, and increase digestive enzymes by eating fruits and vegetables.

So, dive in and see how just seven short days can be the start to feeling better than ever and embracing Whole Health for 2020 and beyond. We’ve lined up all the steps and products you need to help make the transformation you dream of a reality.

Find the resources to guide you, including recipes, a helpful shopping guide, frequently asked questions, testimonials and more, at livepure.com/7-day-detox, and watch great things start to take shape for a healthier, whole new you in a new decade!

Outsmart Holiday Eating

christmas-dinner-749x562The holidays might be a good time for your taste buds, but it isn’t exactly the ideal season for your waistline (looking at you, eggnog and peanut brittle).

But what if you could enjoy all the holiday extras without sabotaging your health? PURE’s mission to deliver Whole Health is here to help you dash through the season without crashing at the finish line.

Here’s how sticking to your PURE routine and a using a few tricks can help you stay healthy— from the cookie platters through the New Year’s toasts:

  • Eat Mindfully.  When you’re eating, sit back and allow yourself to truly enjoy your favorite holiday flavors. Pay attention to the taste, aroma and texture of the foods. Since it takes a few minutes for your stomach’s “I’m full signal” to reach your brain, it’s smart to take a 10-minute break after your first helping, suggests Patrick Skerrett in a Harvard Health Blog article1. “You might realize you are full or want only a small portion of seconds,” explains the author. Other than that, don’t attend a party on an empty stomach as it makes you prone to overeating. As for the dessert, eat only one or two dishes (or even just bites!) of what you really love instead of sampling every option on the table.
  • Stay hydrated.Water accounts for 60% of our body’s total weight, and we need to stay hydrated in order to maintain this ratio. Water is also necessary for several bodily functions, including maintaining our cell’s fluids and delivering nutrients. Drink plain or infused H2O as often as you can throughout the day. Limit your intake of high-calorie drinks like eggnog, martinis and margaritas. If you’re consuming alcoholic beverages over the holidays, try alternating with glasses of water in between cocktails. Your body will thank you the next morning.
  • Choose healthy substitutes.With a few simple diet tweaks, you can indulge in your favorite holiday foods without packing on serious pounds. For instance, replace sour cream with Greek yogurt in your favorite holiday recipes. Trade mashed potato with mashed sweet potato. And swap heavy dips like blue cheese dip and spinach and artichoke dip with healthier bean-based dips and homemade hummus. In addition, choose broth-based soups over heavy, cream-based ones. And opt for lighter cheeses like cottage cheese, soft goat cheese and feta cheese instead of calorie-dense blue cheese, cream cheese or reduced-fat cheddar cheese. Additionally, load up on roasted veggies and lightly-dressed salads before reaching for ham or green bean casserole. You can also sneak more vegetables into your diet by grabbing a protein and fruit or veggie-packed smoothie for breakfast or a snack.
  • Reinvent your holiday workout.It might feel like a challenge to make time for a sweat sesh when your social calendar and to-do lists are jam-packed. To stay motivated, plan your workout routine around your holiday schedule. Instead of the usual 30-minute routine, do a 15-minute workout in the morning and evening or go for a 10-minute walk twice daily. This splits your physical activity into smaller, more manageable time intervals. If you don’t have time to hit the gym, workout at home with the help of online classes and fitness apps like Carrot Fit and Fitocracy.

‘Tis the Season for Selling!

The holidays are here, and there’s no better time to grow your PURE business. But with all of the pressure to create the perfect holiday, in addition to boosting sales during the busiest buying time of the year, anxiety can take a toll. So tackle seasonal stress head-on with a well-structured plan (and some fun!) for how to achieve your business goals, and watch your sales reach new heights.

PanAmericanGames_7_17_19Here are a few ideas to get you fa-la-la-la-ing toward making sales bright:

You can’t know what you need to prepare for the holiday season without knowing your goals. Sit down and carve out goals for hitting different targets along the way from now until the end of the year. Define your goals as the minimum goals you need to reach, your expected goals, and your stretch goals. Don’t only define these goals in terms of revenue. Add any other goals you may have such as customer engagement and social media following.

Use our holiday-frenzied society as a benefit to your business. We’re programmed to LOVE holidays, especially the gift-buying season. Don’t be shy about it–let your target audience know that you have what they need. Send the message that, because they’re dealing with a small business that sells directly to them, you actually care about them, so you’ll do it better than the bigger guys.

You’ve done your best to anticipate customer needs and to be prepared, but was it enough? Make sure you have a plan to purchase extra inventory quickly if your holiday sales are better than expected. And there’s no better time to do it than right now. Check in daily at www.livepure.com for PURE’s Whole Health for the Holidays Promotions and nab the best deals all year.

Spoil your best local customers with a fun night that includes recognition and shopping. Create prize drawings for customers who bring a friend, share a review on your Facebook page, shop up to a certain amount, or book a selling party for the new year.

The personal touch goes a long way toward building stronger connections with your customers. Include a Customer Appreciation “bring back” coupon for a special offer, discounted shipping or free sample to keep your customers coming back for more in the New Year.

This is a great way to sell off excess inventory. Put removable price stickers on all your products and invite customers to shop. Go Live on Facebook to share what’s left with all your Facebook friends, who can comment on what they want to buy. Because…everything must go!

Create a gift certificate (redeemable in January) to offer as a bonus with a specific shopping amount. For example: Spend $50 and get a $10 gift certificate. The goal is that customers will spend much more than the gift certificate amount when they come back to shop in January, which means this promo can pay for itself.

Facebook holds a gold mine of leads. Watch for what friends are posting, and follow up with those who might be looking for gift ideas or who mention an upcoming fundraiser. You can also create a fundraiser of your own to support a local charity or cause by donating a percentage of profits.

If you try any of these selling ideas and see noteworthy results, please share your story via email to jdavis@livepure.com to be featured on a follow-up blog post. Thanks and, from all of us at PURE, we wish you a happy and profitable holiday season. Get those jingle sales on!

UNITE Recap from a Strawberry


Freshly rinsed and feeling plumper than ever, I burst through the double doors of the Delta Hotel to get the crowd of IBOs pumped up for UNITE! Arms are flailing, high-fives are lining up down the hallway, the anticipation building steadily; I could feel the electricity in the air. No one had any clue why I was there, but that was alright. They would soon know the real reason that this crazy Strawberry was waltzing down the hallway.


At last, the venue doors of Terrell Hall open and the event commences, glowing eyes and hopeful aspirations all around from those looking to learn and experience what was truly in-store for them and their business. What knowledge could they grasp onto? How many of my teammates will I see? What cool products will PURE unveil? How could I get the one-up for my business? Being a Strawberry on the outside looking in, I could tell all these cheerful folks were ready to take on the world and I was loving the vibe.


I walk 5 steps to my left and get asked what I was doing here? I told them to come follow me. We frolicked down the hallway to a giant green food truck (my home) where I showed them what items we had on our exclusive UNITE menu…then I busted out the Blender Bike. My prized possession. I had never seen such a complicated look of shock, confusion and giddiness in my entire life on this person’s face.


Next thing you know, boom, I grab a blending vessel filled with a pink liquid from the food truck, attach it to the front of my beloved Blender Bike, and pedal full throttle, sending the pink liquid into a vortex of frothiness. Slowing down, the deed was done. Shake complete. I pour my new friend a small cup of this thick pink blended liquid and WALA…they fell in love.


“This Strawberry Shake is incredible! I’m going to have my friends and team try this too!” History was made in this exact moment. The first-ever IBO had tasted our 360 Complete Strawberry Shake. From this moment on, nothing but sheer chaos ensued in front of my home…I mean food truck.


The first session of speakers had just ended in Terrell Hall and the IBO flood had broken through the double-door levee. Word around town was that 360 Complete Strawberry Shake was available to sample and the flood migrated toward the bright green food truck. To the bike I went!


Equipped with endless strawberry shake mixes and blending vessels, this Strawberry was biking like Lance Armstrong in the Tour de France (before being busted with PEDs) to blend all these shakes. For some reason, people acted like they had never seen a giant Strawberry before, so I was getting photos and videos taken all around me like paparazzi. All in a day’s work!


UNITE Attendees were also asking about our other new flavor on the menu, Limited Edition PURE Perk Salted Caramel! And just how the Strawberry Shake craze started, as did the Salted Caramel coffee bonanza. At this point, we were ready for it! More biking, more blending, more photos, more muscle gains on my Strawberry quads. Again, all in a day’s work.


Once the next session inside Terrell Hall started and everyone already received their Strawberry Shake and Salted Caramel fix, this sneaky little Strawberry snuck backstage. Can you guess what happens next? You could have only been there to get this full experience.


Timeline of events:

  • Discover a bag of event-exclusive T-Shirts.
  • Hear the song, Gangnam Style by PSY blasting through the airwaves.
  • Run out on stage, throw some shirts into the crowd.
  • Jump down the stairs and start running into the crowd.
  • Throw more shirts, give high fives.
  • Dance like no other Strawberry has dared dance before to Gangnam Style.


From this point of the story on, Strawberry was hanging out with his new IBO friends, taking pictures, laughing, hugging, interviewing folks, and everything in between. Both days of UNITE had truly made this Strawberry so excited that I just blush thinking about it (you probably couldn’t tell that I’m blushing, but I am). Not only am I excited about the kind folks I encountered, but the bright future PURE holds as they continue their momentum of freshness and innovation. Hopefully this momentum will continue well past my shelf-life.


So, what is the takeaway from all of this? Being a Strawberry is awesome. So is 360 Complete Strawberry Shake. You know what else is awesome? PURE Perk Salted Caramel. The PURE corporate staff for putting this all together. The speakers and leaders that inspired us all to be the best version of ourselves. The IBOs that dedicated their weekend to coming out to Allen, TX. The entire PURENerium® line launching. The exclusive deals. Rudy from the movie. Damon West. $1,000 cash giveaways. Seeing everyone learn and get involved. And, lastly, watching all IBOs come together and spend quality time together.

Have a healthy Halloween

Halloween is just around the corner, and that means there will be a lot of scary sugar. From parties to trick-or-treating to grocery stores, candy can be found everywhere, and it WILL block your path to Whole Health.

As much as I love M&Ms and candy corn, I know they’re not healthy. The bakery aisle usually tries to compete with their creatively decorated cakes, cookies and cupcakes. Everywhere we turn, there seems to be items just leaping off the shelf and into our grocery cart!

Yes, we buy candy for the adorable trick-of-treaters, yet we always find ourselves mindlessly munching on these tempting treats. If you have children, it’s hard not having sweets in the house. For others, it’s about moderation and keeping it out of sight. For myself, there are parties, festivals and other events that just beg for the attention.

Moderation is key

Halloween is a festive holiday and candy is to be enjoyed, but due to the rising rates of obesity and disease and a lack of vital nutrients in the diet, it’s important to watch your intake of sugar. The American Heart Association states that children and teens (ages 2-18) should limit their added sugars to less than 6 teaspoons per day and no more than 8 fl. oz. of sugary beverages per week. The average American consumes about 355 calories of added sugar a day, or the equivalent of 22.2 teaspoons. That is about triple the recommended amount!1

Don’t stray from your healthy habits

Enjoy Halloween with your children, but carefully plan ahead of time. Teach sensible eating so your kids can make wise decisions when faced with an overwhelming amount of temptations. Also make sure your child gets a well-balanced meal before trick-or-treating; it’ll reduce the urge to snack afterwards.

Don’t be afraid to offer healthy trick-or-treating alternatives! Obesity rates are climbing at an alarmingly high rate; in fact, the prevalence of childhood obesity has increased dramatically. One in every 5 children are obese.2

Healthier and non-food options for trick-or-treating:

  • Organic juice boxes
  • Natural fruit leather
  • Bouncy balls
  • Hair bows
  • 100-calorie pack snacks
  • Granola bars
  • Card games
  • Pencils
  • Bubbles
  • Temporary tattoos
  • Plastic vampire fangs
  • Toy cars
  • Mini packs: Play-Doh, crayon packs, erasers, coloring books


I used to always get frustrated when my parents made me wait to eat the candy I collected. They insisted on inspecting it all first. Rule of thumb — if the wrapper looks suspicious, tampered with or you’re not familiar with the brand, toss it! Another wise rule, let your child choose a few pieces of candy to eat on Halloween night and then a few pieces each day after that.

Restriction can often backfire, leading to an obsession with candy. Use this time as an opportunity to teach about healthy, nutritious eating. Combine a miniature snack bar with a piece of fruit and then teach the benefits of the fruit while encouraging healthy eating habits.

Be a healthy host

Finally, Halloween isn’t just for kids. Adults like to attend and host costume parties for friends and families. If hosting, incorporate other fall favorites, such as pumpkin, squash, apples and other fresh produce. Check our PURE’s Pinterest page for some delicious, healthy food choices that all your guests will love!

How do you celebrate Halloween? It’s your turn to tempt us with your treats. Post your fun Halloween recipes and health ideas on Facebook and tag us @livepureglobal.

Target Sleep

Was that a yawn? Did you get enough sleep last night? Do yourself a favor and read this post to understand the importance of sleep.

Do you sleep 7 to 8 hours every night? Do you go to bed and get up at decent timeI usually have no trouble getting to sleep and I rarely wake up in the middle of the night, though I do have some bad habits like playing games on my phone right before turning off the light. Now, getting out of bed in the morning is a totally different story. I’m not a morning person.

Whatever your sleep habits, making sure it’s quality sleep and at least 7 to 8 hours is vital to our health. We’re going to discuss the benefits of sleep in this post. One thing’s for certain, a lack of sleep can make one cranky, but it can change more than just your mood.

Stay awake and lose more than just sleep

Do you charge your phone at night? Your body and brain need recharging, too. Lose sleep and you’ll lose your “charge”, or the ability to recall details and more. Your brain needs sleep to catch up. A lack of sleep may cause you to experience more negative emotions and fewer positive ones.2

  • Lose sleep and your blood pressure doesn’t have time to rest, which can lead to illness.
  • Lose sleep and your muscles can’t repair themselves from the day’s activities.
  • Lose sleep and you’ll disrupt the hormones that control appetite. When these get out of balance, so does the temptation to eat unhealthy foods. You’ll also be more tired and less likely to exercise. Not a good combination.

Can you get too much sleep?

Yes. Sleeping too much may have the same effects as not sleeping enough. According to a study in the journal Sleep, researchers defined short sleep as six hours or less, adequate sleep as seven to eight hours, and long sleep as nine or more hours.1

A study from the American Heart Association showed that people who slept for than ten hours in a 24-hour period were 30% more likely to develop cardiovascular disease.2

Catch those Zzzs with products by PURE

If you’re not getting adequate sleep, or if you’re getting too much, products by PURE can help.

Fall asleep, stay asleep and wake up refreshed with SleepTrim and help the body burn calories while you sleep.* Melatonin is released in two stages throughout the night, ensuring continued absorption. A Relaxation Blend of botanicals, including magnesium, L-theanine, passion flower and chamomile, helps the body relax mentally and physically.* Melatonin decreases as we age, making its consumption even more important.

Relaxed muscles are necessary for adequate sleep. CalciuMK+ can help by supplying magnesium, a mineral that relaxes muscles but also regulates blood pressure already in normal range.* CalciuMK+ is an excellent source of magnesium, providing 50% of your daily value.

GPS Reset, a product in our performance line, encourages restful sleep while enhancing muscle physiology and calorie burning. It supports the release of growth hormone (HGH) which encourages adequate sleep. Think of HGH as your body’s master hormone. It helps to maintain your health as an adult by controlling metabolism, immunity, brain functions, temperature regulation, heart health, organ and tissue growth and more. The older you get, the less your body produces it. Lose sleep and your body loses the ability to produce it as the only time the body releases HGH is when it sleeps.

GPS Reset not only helps you sleep but it helps boosts lean body mass and overnight recovery from physical activity from the day. *

Can’t stay awake? Caffeine and other botanicals might do the trick. Products like PURE Perk, PURE Café, ENERGY, GPS Energize, Matcha Vegan Shake and 360 Complete Shake work in different ways to boost your energy.* Be sure to monitor your caffeine consumption and limit it to no more than 400mg a day.

Well, I hope I didn’t put you to sleep. Then again, that might be a good thing!

Trace your health to these important minerals

When someone is coming down with a cold, I think it’s commonplace to hear, “I need to drink some vitamin C”. But I rarely hear someone say, “I didn’t get enough zinc today.” Minerals are just as critical for our health as are vitamins. A deficiency in minerals can have an impact on blood pressure, weight, digestion and more.

There are minerals the body needs a lot of such as sodium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, sulfur and calcium. Sodium and calcium are more recognizable, but all these minerals play a role in our health.

Then there are “trace” minerals that our bodies need in smaller amounts (less than 20mg per day)1 but are just as important. These include chromium, copper, iodine, iron, manganese, selenium and zinc. These “trace” minerals serve as antioxidants, they help build enzymes, and they’re important for normal growth and development. We’ll break these down in more detail below.

Where can we get trace minerals from, how much do we need, and what happens if we don’t get our daily dose?

The seven trace minerals:

  • Chromium – this mineral is found in fruit, vegetables, meat, fish and grains so it’s not hard to obtain. It helps with the function of insulin and glucose metabolism.2
  • Copper – this mineral is found in organ meats, shellfish, nuts and seeds, bran cereals and whole grain products. Copper is involved in energy production, iron metabolism and the production of hemoglobin. 2
  • Iodine – Seafood is an excellent source of this mineral which is synonymous with a healthy thyroid. Too little of this mineral can lead to a slowed metabolism, weight gain and mental sluggishness. 2
  • Iron – Think rich, red blood! This mineral is vital for red blood cell formation. It’s found in red meat, poultry, seafood and dark leafy vegetables. It’s common to see iron deficiencies are seen in women, children and pregnant women as well as those involved in rigorous exercise. 2
  • Manganese – this mineral is involved in metabolic functions and the support of bone development and wound healing. Rich food sources include whole grains, nuts, leafy vegetables and teas. 2
  • Selenium – This mineral is found in seafood and organ meats, as well as cereals, grains and dairy products. It plays a role in reproduction, thyroid hormone metabolism, and protection from oxidative stress. 2
  • Zinc – This mineral is found in oysters, beef, crab meat, dark meat chicken, turkey, pork, yogurt, milk, cashews, chickpeas, almonds, peanuts and cheese. It’s necessary for normal growth and development in children and functions of the immune and neurological systems. 2

How much trace minerals do you need?

PUREGen Africa launches PurXcel in Nigeria

PUREGen Africa, Nigeria, recently celebrated the approval and licensure of a new health-promoting technology, called PurXcel, by The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC).

PurXcel is a product that delivers clinically effective Tri-Active Technology (bioavailable Glutathione, Superoxide Dismutase, and Aloe Acemannan) in a proprietary blend of 18 complementary ingredients designed to help cleanse, balance and build the body at a cellular level. These ingredients have clinically demonstrated significant improvements in overall health by supporting the body’s ability to neutralize damaging free radicals and remove toxins. 

PURE is committed to help Africans gain access to high-quality, highly effective products that can  support optimal health. PurXcel is already available in the PUREGen Africa, Ghana market. Fred Ansah, director of PUREGen Ghana said, “There are positive testimonies coming from the Ghanaian people who have used PurXcel and have experienced its tremendous benefits. It has become a product of choice and is recommended by doctors and pharmacists here. With the massive impact PurXcel is having in Ghana, we know it will create a lot of attention in Nigeria as well.”

PURE launched six products in the Nigeria market in August 2019. PURE Independent Business Owners and Preferred Customers can now purchase PurXcel from the Nigeria office. The Nigeria office offers free shipping of products throughout the country. Products can also be picked up at several stockist locations across Nigeria.

People interested in learning more about the products by PURE and the opportunity in Nigeria can participate in seminars at Nigeria’s main office on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays between 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. The Nigeria office regularly hosts Super Saturday meetings and health symposiums/outreaches in different cities every week.
