Mindset Health Tip
Have you watched “You Are What You Eat: Twin Experiment” on Netflix yet?
This is an interesting recap of multiple sets of identical twins changing their diets and lifestyles for eight weeks in a unique scientific experiment format designed to explore how certain foods impact the body.
Of course, this experiment has its flaws but you might enjoy seeing a body scanner basically the exact same as our Fit3D! So cool that we have such a high-tech piece of equipment right inside our facility.
So let me know what you think if you have seen it!

We all feel best when we have clarity and focus while moving through a busy workday. And yet I’m sure we’ve all had days when we feel that despite our best efforts, our brain feels like it is trudging through mud, just trying to keep up.
Thankfully, mother nature has provided several nutrients that can help to improve brain function. Sometimes improving our mental processing can be as easy as including a few of these phytonutrients into our day!
Zeaxanthin benefits your eyes, skin, and areas of the brain responsible for decision making and processing. This nutrient can be found in pistachios, broccoli, spinach, and lettuce.
Anthocyanins help to increase blood flow to the brain, especially areas related to memory and attention. These are especially high in blueberries, blackberries, and elderberries.
Lignans and quercetin are both powerful antioxidants, helping to decrease inflammation which can impact brain function. These nutrients can be found in foods such as flax and sesame seeds, red onions, apples, and Brussels sprouts.
Resveratrol is a power antioxidant that can protect us against stress. This is found in highest quantity in grapes.
If you work on incorporating at least some of these colorful foods into your day, it will not only benefit your body, but also help your brain function optimally. A little brain boost!

Member of the Month
Introducing Renee Huyck!
This incredible athlete is one tough cookie! She works hard here at Mindset and she is an incredible pitcher in her main sport of softball. If she is on the mound, you don’t want to be in the batter’s box.
Renee is a force to be reckoned with! She works hard, lifts heavy and focuses on her technique during every movement! She might be quiet at times but that is only because she is FOCUSED.
Give her some love as she is in training for her upcoming softball season!!!

Does Juicy Leaf use organic fruits and vegetables?
- We strictly use certified organic or local, organically grown produce unless an item is on the “EWG Clean Fifteen” list; e.g. pineapples, melons, etc.
What’s the difference between a juice and a smoothie?
- The main difference is fiber. Most of the insoluble fiber is removed in the juicing process.
- By taking the fiber out, you can pack more fruit & veggie nutrients into a juice than you can into a smoothie of the same size.
- The lack of insoluble fiber allows your body to rapidly absorb the nutrients while expending minimal digestive effort.
- Smoothies are made by pulverizing fruit/veggies with liquid in a blender. The insoluble fiber, which helps keep things moving through your system, is maintained in the process.
What are the benefits of juice?
- Several servings of fruit & veg nutrition effortlessly absorbed without energy taxing digestion.
- Easy way to incorporate more fruits and veg in diet than eating produce alone.
- Boosts immunity and energy. Alkalizing, chronic illness prevention, helps aid in weight loss, clear skin, healthy hair.
