PURE featured in Direct Selling News

PURE was highly praised in the January edition of Direct Selling News for its steady growth in both sales force and revenue in the past two years. This edition is titled, “What you focus on grows”, which so aptly describes the transformation PURE has experienced in just a short amount of time.

The article, “A Promising Path for PURE”, recaps PURE’s growth from the creation of GoYin to the formation of PURE. Daren Hogge, PURE CEO, helped start GoYin several years ago and it eventually merged with another company in 2008, a company founded by Dae Geun Jung, now Founder and Chairman of the Board for PURE. PURE then underwent a rebrand in 2017 to become PURE: People United Reaching Everyone.

In the article, Daren Hogge refers to the HI-ACT principles as how he wants to build the company and how he wants its IBOs to build their businesses. HI-ACT is an acronym for the principles of Honesty, Integrity, Accountability, Commitment and Trustworthiness.

“We put in some founding principles that were pillars,” Daren explains. “One of them was the philosophy of our products that have come to life through the CORE4 — to cleanse the body, balance the body, build the body and provide focus for the body. All the products we developed, we created to make sure they fit into those categories and help to deliver Whole Health. The other principles we came up with are what I term the HI-ACT.”

The article continues to talk about how we’ve modernized our products to make them more mainstream with what consumers see in the marketplace — from the redesign of the GoYin bottle for our tenth anniversary celebration to bolder ENERGY packaging. And just recently, our GPS performance line was recognized by Informed Sports Certification as being safe for use by professional, collegiate and Olympic athletes.

Other notable recognition:

  • Strong leadership in its Independent Business Owners (IBOs)
  • 7-Day and 28-Day Detox Programs
  • CORE4 products featured in the 2018 Physicians’ Desk Reference
  • PURE Rank Bonus may be one of the most lucrative in the industry
  • Partnership with Disabled American Veterans (DAV)
  • Global presence with new markets in Western Africa and Thailand
  • Partnership with Gray Gaulding, PURE IBO and NASCAR driver

Going forward, Daren’s strategy is to continue to look for strong leaders who share the company’s HI-ACT principles and want to share them with like-minded individuals. “I believe that we have only scratched the surface here in the U.S.,” adds Daren. “I think we’ll see quadruple growth over the next few years from the projections we set two years ago — and we’ve exceeded — and where we’re headed over the next four years.”

PURE will keep the momentum going continuing their commitment to deliver Whole Health with high-quality products for physical health, opportunity for financial health, relationships for personal health and opportunities for social impact for philanthropic health.

Ryan Takao leads by example

We are proud to announce the 2019 New Year, New You Challenge winner, Ryan Takao! Not only did he go above and beyond sharing the PURE Detox programs, but he will be joining PURE on the PURE Destinations cruise to Bermuda! This exceptional achievement is right on the footsteps of Ryan winning the Team28 Challenge in 2018 which took him on the PURE Destinations cruise to the Eastern Caribbean.

Ryan participated in PURE’s Detox Programs and experienced great success with them. People saw that he was taking care of his body and achieving real results and naturally wanted to follow.

When asked how he found success through the Challenge, Ryan said, “I prayed a lot. I stuck with the guidelines and trusted the system. In the end, it’s not about what I did. It’s about everyone else’s stories. It’s not about comparing ourselves with others, but rather sharing with others. I modeled it, encouraged it and supported it. It’s about unification, not division.”

Ryan truly has a knack for helping others. He has demonstrated great passion for sharing Whole Health through his effort and dedication. He has shown us, and the world, how helping others can be mutually beneficial.

Regarding the detox itself, Ryan encourages those who want to participate to listen and learn from what others have done. Be consistent with your detox, and be social.

Ryan calls San Antonio, Texas home. He joined PURE as an IBO (Independent Business Owner) in October 2014. Through the success he has had telling his own story and promoting the Detox, he has reached the rank of Platinum. His favorite product is Mangosteen for its antioxidant benefits and ability to help support the body’s natural defenses by enhancing the functions of the immune system.*

Meet IBOs Ron and Jill Grieve

Ron and Jill started their journey with PURE in September of 2017. They saw the opportunity as a way to improve their family’s health and their finances. They envisioned a way to take some of the pressure off Ron who was the sole income earner, while allowing Jill to homeschool their two boys.

After taking products by PURE, they began to experience more energy and realized how good they felt. They were more than excited! While consuming the products and making healthy lifestyle choices, Jill lost 15 pounds after one month and a total of 30 pounds by the end of 3 months, which she has maintained for over a year.* This followed an ischemic stroke Jill suffered in 2014, when she was only 38.   

Jill participated and completed PURE’s Detox program and is a proud member of Team28.  She attributes the community of support and the Detox Guide as  invaluable components to her long-term success.

By simply introducing others to PURE’s community and opportunity, and by helping them get started on their health journey, the Grieves are now earning a residual income!

“It is turning out to be everything we had hoped for! Deciding to get started with PURE: People United Reaching Everyone has truly been one of the best decisions for our family! My biggest piece of advice to anyone wanting to become part of this family is to always stay positive, stay connected with your leaders who have gone before you, and stay focused! Having a no-quit attitude is important, regardless of what you are looking to achieve!”

When asked what her favorite product by PURE is, Jill replied, “I love it all but I will say that one time we ran out of Daily Build (liquid) and noticed a big difference in how we felt. We won’t let that happen again!”

PURE IBO John Louch benefits from PURE Detox and DAV

Meet John Louch, PURE Independent Business Owner and a lifetime member of the DAV (Disabled American Veterans).

John joined PURE in September 2018 after being introduced to the company by his brother, Russ Louch. The products seemed great to him, but what really attracted John to PURE was the remarkable dedication from the leadership of those at the highest levels of the organization.

“J.R. Burnett, Chairman Independent Business Owner (IBO), drove from Lubbock, TX to my brother’s house in San Marcos, TX to share PURE,” said John. “What kind of company has people willing to drive hundreds of miles for each other? I knew at that point that I wanted to be a part of this!”

In addition, the inspirational leadership John has received from IBO Lucretia Valle (2018 PURE Heart recipient) and the entire Valle team has been amazing and provides him with the motivation to excel.

John started with the CORE4 products and later participated in the 7-Day Detox program. During his first 7 days on the detox, he lost 11 pounds and felt so good that he continued with the 28-Day Detox. He lost a total of 35 pounds. The products have helped support John’s healthy lifestyle changes.*

John enlisted in the Army in 1990 and served until 2016. He began his career as a combat medic and after several years received a Green to Gold Scholarship. He earned his commission as an Army officer from Norwich University in Northfield, Vermont.

John served as a team leader, platoon leader, company executive officer, detachment executive officer, company commander, detachment commander, battalion logistics officer, brigade planning officer, military transition team executive officer, battalion executive officer and senior military advisor. John was stationed in various locations across the U.S. including Alaska, North Carolina, Texas, Colorado, Washington, Maryland, Kansas, and Washington D.C.

John is most proud of his time serving as a company commander during the initial ground assault into Iraq and as an advisor to foreign governments. He has a wide range of medals and awards from his 25 years on active duty and more than 58 months spent in combat. He is forever grateful for the medics, nurses and surgeons at Landstuhl Army Medical Center in Germany for the care they gave him after being evacuated on multiple occasions.

These days, John spends his time volunteering in his community. He is active with the Good News Club which provides free after-school care and shares the message of Jesus Christ with students. John has helped the Fort Hood Area Habitat for Humanity build several homes dedicated to deserving disabled veterans. He is a member of the Southern Baptist Men’s Disaster Relief and Team Rubicon, a veteran-run disaster management/relief organization.

Don’t just make resolutions, achieve them

Welcome to 2019! Are you one of the many Americans who make New Year’s resolutions? Are you successful at achieving them? Research says that more than 50% of people who make New Year’s resolutions generally keep them for the first two weeks, but by the end of the first month that number declines and at six months many people have completely abandoned those resolutions.

Any guesses as to what the number-one New Year’s resolution was in 2018? Losing weight topped the list. How many of you agree and even have it on the top of your resolution list for 2019? I know it has frequently topped my list. Do you wonder how and if you can succeed with your resolution? You can, and I’ll explain.

Dieting versus healthy eating

Losing weight can feel like a never-ending cycle. Sometimes it seems like you try every “diet” plan and workout on the market, but they turn out to be failures. There is a difference between healthy eating and dieting. Dieting makes you hungry. Diets are temporary and often unrealistic.

A philosophy of ours at PURE, called Cleanse, Balance, Build, Focus, teaches that when you give the body what it needs, it will be able to do what it was created to do. In other words, if you feed your body health and wellness, it will provide health and wellness in return. If you feed the body garbage, well, that’s what will come out.

Cleanse, Balance, Build and Focus with CORE4

Begin with a strong foundation. The products in CORE4 help set the stage for optimal wellness. Start by cleansing your body of internal and environmental toxins. Next balance your mood and stress levels. Then, build key nutrients and provide focus and mental well-being.

  • Cleanse your body with HealthTrim® Cleanse. Our world is swarming with toxins. They are in the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat. And, they’re not just physical. We have mental toxins, too. Check out PURE’s Detox Program below.
  • Balance your body with GoYin. Every system in the body strives to maintain status quo. When something is out of balance, our bodies will do what’s necessary to get that balance back. This isn’t just about physical balance, but emotional, mental and spiritual balance, too.
  • Build your body with Daily Build. We must provide our body with the basic nutrients needed to be strong and healthy. Also, one size NEVER fits all. You must find and give your body what it needs to be healthy.
  • Focus with ENERGY. You are doing this for you; not for someone else. You must get healthy for you, and you can do this when you focus.

PURE Detox Program

A way to jump-start the cleanse/detoxification process is to start with the Detox program and then you go into CORE4. Or, if you started with the CORE4 and you are ready to take your detoxing a step further then we recommend participating in PURE’s Detox program. Successful weight loss consists of healthy eating and regular physical activity. Jump-start your journey with a combination of herbs and botanicals that help facilitate the removal of toxins from the body.

Begin with a 7-day detox, or if you desire a deeper detox, continue with the 28-day program for a full body reset. Once you see the difference it makes, you’ll be hooked. This program works because you’re feeding your body plant-based, whole food nutrition. You are eating and creating sustainable habits. You will experience life-changing results

It’s time to get your health back on track and support your weight loss journey. In just one week, you’ll remove harmful toxins, experience better digestion, have more energy, improve your mental clarity, have fewer sugar cravings and see a reduction in body fat.*

This is your year. It’s your time not just to lose the weight, but to become the healthy person you were created to be. Use PURE’s philosophy combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise to lose weight and keep it off. Make that your resolution for 2019.

Weight loss results may vary based on individual users. Products by PURE are designed to be used in conjunction with a sensible diet and regular exercise. Persons interested in using products by PURE or programs to maintain healthy weight should consult with their health care provider prior to beginning any new nutrition and exercise program.

Spice up your cleansing regimen

Herbs are truly a gift from nature. Not only do they add wonderful flavor to dishes, but they offer many health benefits, including the possibility of cleansing the body of harmful toxins.

Spices like turmeric, oregano, ginger, parsley and black and white pepper may have cleansing properties. Many of them can be grown in your backyard or indoor gardens. Consider coupling these herbs with your PURE 7-Day or 28-Day Detox meals to take advantage of their cleansing benefits.

Turmeric is a plant that comes from the ginger family. It contains a phytochemical substance called curcumin which is yellow in color, and is found in a lot of foods from curry to mustard. Studies suggest that curcumin’s antioxidant properties can support overall health. Daily Build has a Bio-Protection Blend that contains turmeric extract.

Add turmeric to soups, rice dishes, vegetables and chicken dishes. Another nice treat is to add 2 teaspoons turmeric, 1 teaspoon ground ginger and a few drops of stevia sweetener to warmed almond milk.

Oregano is widely used in Italian food. A study in the Journal of Nutrition found that oregano, among other dried culinary herbs, contained very high concentrations of antioxidants. The authors stated that in a normal diet, the intake of herbs may contribute significantly to the total intake of plant antioxidants, and can be an even better source of dietary antioxidants than many other food groups such as fruits, berries, cereals and vegetables.1

Oregano adds flavor to broccoli, tomatoes, mushrooms and potatoes. It tastes great sprinkled on chicken dishes as well.

Ginger is considered by many to be one of the best detoxifying herbs. It has been used medicinally for thousands of years for its antioxidant benefits. In fact, it is used in many cleansing programs. The beneficial portion of the plant is referred to as the rhizome, which is the thick underground stem. Metabolic ONE and HealthTrim® Cleanse contain ginger.

To benefit from this herb, try infusing finely chopped ginger root in boiling water. Add lemon juice and stevia sweetener for a refreshing drink, hot or cold.

Parsley’s unique taste comes from a phytochemical called polyacetylene. This herb contains vitamin C, chlorophyll, beta-carotene, vitamin K and folate, which may be used by the body for detoxification. Finely chop parsley and add it to a salad or use it in pesto. Parsley can also be added to juices or smoothies.

Black and white pepper are great flavor agents. They are made from the Piper-nigrum plant. Black pepper is ground from dried, whole, unripe fruit. White pepper is ground from dried, ripe fruit that has had the outer layer removed. Black pepper may help digestion. Black pepper increases your hydrochloric acid secretion, which is necessary for the digestion of proteins and other foods within the stomach.Daily Build, PURE Café, Green Coffee Bean and Metabolic ONE all contain black pepper extract.

PURE IBO Cassie Wimberley benefits from Team28

Here at PURE, Independent Business Owners (IBOs) have seen incredible results from their participation in the Team28 Challenge.

You, too, can benefit from the 28-day detox program. Products from PURE’s CORE4, HealthTrim® line, Everyday Essentials and GPS line, help facilitate the removal of toxins from the body while supporting weight loss.*

Cassie Wimberley is a PURE Silver IBO who saw amazing results with the 28-day Detox. After teaching in an elementary school, Cassie decided to stay home with her children and work her PURE business full time. She wanted her old self back and desired to feel comfortable again. Cassie participated in the 28-day detox program to develop healthier habits and to jumpstart her weight loss. She had been taking products by PURE for five months before starting the program, so she knew how wonderful they were. 

She invited her mother to join her and, together, they completed the program. Cassie lost 15.4 pounds and 14.75 inches in 28 days.** She has maintained the weight she lost and is enjoying wearing clothes she hasn’t worn in a long time. She found that the accompanying food guide and daily calendar were very helpful and motivating.

When Cassie is not managing her PURE business, she enjoys making jewelry, painting, baking and spending time with her husband, her 9-year-old son and her 4-year-old daughter. Her favorite products are Organic Sulfur, CORE4 and PURE Café. She loves how the products are created for entire families. And she loves that every single ingredient in each product is listed on the label so you know exactly what you are taking.

Cassie’s favorite bible verse is Psalm 46:10; ’Be still and know that I am God.’ She says that this verse, “…helps on a hard day, on a beautiful, happy day, and anywhere in between. God has our backs and is there for us in all times, both good and bad. God made me a determined person, and if I start something, I always try to finish it to the best of my ability. I lean on that verse all the time, knowing that God is with me through it all.”   

Cassie recommends to, “Do something amazing for yourself and your health by participating in the 7-day and/or 28-day detox. Be strong and have the mindset that you can do it!”
