Mindset Health Tip

It has been shown in many research studies that goal setting is a proven strategy to achieve desirable outcomes. It has also been shown to increase self-esteem, self-confidence and even self-reliance. It has also been shown to improve motivation!

A 2015 study by psychologist Gail Matthews also found a strong link between goal setting and success. With research at the helm, it’s clear that goal setting not only benefits mindset, but also outcomes!

So what are you waiting for?  

I challenge you to write ONE GOAL this week that you want to achieve in the next 10 days…

Functional Medicine Corner

Did you know that in addition to helping us poop more regularly, our microbiome or beneficial bacteria inside of our gut make certain nutrients for us? When our microbiome is healthy and active, they are making nutrients including:

  • Vitamin K, which helps us absorb vitamin D, which supports our bone health as well as our immune system.

  • Biotin, which helps us convert food into energy, and supports hair, skin, and nervous system health.

  • Folate, which helps with red blood cell formation as well as liver function.

  • Short chain fatty acids, which are anti-inflammatory, but also help to keep colon cells healthy, and may contribute to decreased risk of colon cancer.

  • Neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine, which keep our brain happy and calm. Up to 50% of the dopamine and 95% of serotonin is made by the beneficial bacteria in the gut!

There are many reasons to eat probiotic foods and good fiber to support the microbiome and help improve overall health.

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?

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.
