Meet Mark Kobe, PURE IBO and U.S. Army veteran

The transition from military to civilian life can be difficult, but for Mark Kobe, Independent Business Owner (IBO), the PURE products and opportunity made the transition that much easier.

Mark served in the U.S. Army from 1995-2015, stationed in New York, North Carolina and Maryland, as a Signals Intelligence professional and Spanish linguist. He received the Air Medal and other medals for deployments to Afghanistan, Africa, Bosnia and South America.

Mark is most proud of the time he served with a Special Missions Unit in Maryland. He was one of less than 1% of the total military who was accepted into this unit.

Mark stated, “I had the opportunity to take part in historic missions and work with some true heroes. The places that I got to see, the missions that I was a part of and most importantly the quality of the people that I got to work with will always stay with me as the best time in my military career.”

After retiring, he was employed under the Secretary of Defense. He discovered PURE: People United Reaching Everyone in August 2018.

PURE gave Mark and his wife a vehicle through which they could reach their financial goals and generate residual income for their future. After retiring from the military after a full 20-year career, Mark was starting from scratch at the age of 46. He wanted to add another stream of income to his pension and disability. 

“PURE is providing for us, as long as I am willing to put in the time and effort.  As I struggle to understand how to be successful in this line of work, I find that I’m constantly reading books,” said Mark. “I have improved my personal relationship with Christ as I spend hours reading the Bible and have put my PURE business in his hands to support us. Daily Detox and Mila are my wife’s favorite products. My favorite is Organic Sulfur. I have full range of motion in my knees for the first time in a long time and I’m no longer taking glucosamine.”*

Mark decided to forgo his usual workout supplement regime to try PURE’s GPS line of products. After using all six products for three months, Mark noticed results, as did his friends and family whom he exercises with.

Mark stated, “The pre-workout combination of Adapt, Energize and Circulate is unlike any other pre-workout regimen that I have ever used. I don’t get the “shakes” that I would typically get with most pre-workout supplements. GPS Hydrate keeps my energy level high throughout my workout. GPS Rebuild post-workout supplement is awesome; the taste, the mixability, everything is top notch! With Reset, the cycle is complete. The energy it provides is amazing!”*

Mark is a true hero in our eyes. He is living the PURE philosophy by sharing the opportunity and the wonderful benefits of our high-quality products with others. We are blessed to have him as part of the PURE family.

Say “boo” to bad bacteria

Our digestive system can be a scary place, filled with trillions of bacteria fighting over who rules the gut. Those bacteria are responsible for how food is broken down in our GI tract and how efficiently nutrients are absorbed. Most of our immune system lives in our GI tract, so it’s very important to keep this area healthy.

There are good bacteria and bad bacteria. Good bacteria protect us, whereas bad bacteria release toxins that can hurt us. Bad bacteria can come from the food we eat, environmental toxins and everyday stress. For a healthy system, you always want more good than bad. But how do you keep the bacteria in check?

A balancing act

Probiotics, otherwise known as good bacteria, are microorganisms that help create a healthy bacterial balance in the gut. They help boost the immune system, improve cognitive and cardiovascular health, and promote a healthy inflammatory response in the GI tract.

Our bodies create probiotics naturally, to some degree. We can eat fiber-rich foods that nourish good bacteria, things like greens, bananas and artichokes. You can also supplement with a high-quality probiotic product, like Probiotic by PURE. On the other hand, consuming a lot of sugar and fat feed bad bacteria, so it’s smart to avoid those.

Probiotic by PURE

Not all probiotic supplements get the job done efficiently. Probiotic is unique in that it microencapsulates the “good” bacteria preventing them from getting destroyed on their journey to the gut. The digestive system starts in your mouth, so probiotics have a long way to go before they enter the GI tract. Along that route, many are often lost or damaged, but this new formulation ensures they are all released where they need to be — in the lower digestive tract.

Probiotic contains eight species of probiotics (listed below). Other probiotic supplements on the market may contain more species, but many are destroyed by the harmful acid in the stomach.

  • Lactobacillus acidophilus
  • Lactobacillus plantarum
  • Lactobacillus salivarius
  • Lactococcus lactis
  • Streptococcus thermophilus
  • Bifidobacterium bifidum
  • Bifidobacterium lactus
  • Bifidobacterium longum

Probiotic contains a new strain of bacteria, B longum, that provides immune and digestive system maintenance and supports intestinal regularity.* Probiotic also contains two prebiotics, non-digestible fibers that nourish the growth of probiotics in the lower digestive tract. Together they create the ideal environment.

Individuals age 12 and older can take 2 Probiotic capsules daily, preferably on an empty stomach, before breakfast and before dinner. Children 4 to 11 years of age can take the contents of 1 Probiotic capsule daily.

Probiotic:

  • Supports good digestion*
  • Promotes a healthy immune system*
  • Encourages a balance of gut bacteria*
  • Helps prevent overgrowth of yeasts*
  • Acid-resistant probiotic for maximum absorbency*
  • Assists with nutrient absorption*
  • Contains 8 probiotic species
