Swapping Sugar for Stevia is a sweet choice

Stevia blog headingWe all know that too much sugar is bad for us, however, there is a natural sweetener called stevia available. Unlike artificial sweeteners, stevia has the benefit of zero calories.

The raw leaves of the stevia plant can be 20 to 40 times sweeter than cane sugar, while the powdered derivative is 200 to 300 times sweeter! What this means is that a little bit of stevia goes a long way. For example, a single teaspoon of stevia extract may have the same sweetening ability as an entire cup of sugar. This ratio varies between brands.

Does stevia taste as good as sugar when added to beverages and food? It depends: Some are more concentrated, some contain filler, some have artificial flavouring and some are extremely diluted. Some stevia extracts may also leave a bitter after-taste. And, because stevia is so intensely sweet, it’s important to use it sparingly when replacing the sugar that is generally called for in baking. It may take a bit of trial and error before you decide on the form (liquid or powder), the substitution ratio (sugar vs. stevia) and your preferred brand.

Kenzen Ten4® Matcha Green Tea Drink uses high quality stevia extract from organic stevia leaves as a sweetener, in addition to the mild sweet taste of the organic brown rice solids. Drink to your health!

Learn from others… a guide to success

Learning from others Blog heading

There are many ways to earn income with Nikken. One way is by retailing Nikken products. Another way is by sponsoring fellow business-builders.

  • When you become a Nikken Consultant, you introduce new customers who purchase Nikken products at retail price. You earn retail profit based on the difference between the wholesale and retail prices.
  • When you sponsor new Consultants, you teach them how to retail and enrol their own team members in order to build their Nikken businesses. The more people you have on your team who duplicate your efforts of retailing and sponsoring; the more money you earn.

How do you make this happen?

Successful network marketers make this happen by being “coached” and then becoming coaches themselves once they’ve mastered the methods, strategies and techniques of the Company’s system of duplication. The goal is to help team members with the most perceived potential to reach the next level as quickly and efficiently as possible. At Nikken, we call those with the most perceived potential “quality enrolments” – people who sign up to be Nikken Consultants and commit to retailing a minimum of 500 points each month.

Every Nikken product sold is assigned a specific number referred to as “qualifying point volume”. Making your 500 monthly qualification points is pretty straightforward, and your coach can give you multiple options.

Here are five examples of retail orders to customers:

  • Sell 13 PiMag® Bottles
  • Sell 11 pairs of Kenko mSteps® or Kenko mStrides®
  • Sell 10 each of True Elements® Shampoo and Conditioner.

Be open to new ideas and activity as your sponsor or coach is there to help you succeed. Your coach is there to help you develop your knowledge and skills and may ask you to try out things that you haven’t experienced before such as new products.

Learning from others knowledge is a great way to help you advance your business.

Kenko light blog draftHumans thrive under natural sunlight, but modern living is spent largely indoors. Science has shown that at least a minimum exposure to sunlight may support physical wellbeing and emotional health.

Sunlight provides full-spectrum lighting, which includes what is known as “blue light.” Blue light is actually everywhere. When outside, light from the sun travels through the atmosphere. The shorter, high- energy blue wavelengths collide with the air molecules causing blue light to scatter everywhere. This is what makes the sky look blue. In its natural form, our bodies use blue light from the sun to regulate our natural sleep and wake cycles. Natural blue light also helps boost alertness, heighten reaction times, elevate moods, and increase the feeling of wellbeing. Therefore, exposure to the natural sunlight may make us happier.

The Nikken KenkoLight® includes an increased amount of blue light, replicated from natural sunlight. Unlike the sun, the KenkoLight® does not produce harmful ultraviolet rays. It uses light technology that reduces the flicker and glare effects common to fluorescent and incandescent bulbs and it may help towards reducing eyestrain and headaches, and increasing productivity and focus. The light can be dimed to the desired brightness and has a built in clock so you can keep an eye on your reading or working time. In the morning, the KenkoLight® can be set so that it gradually illuminates, helping to ease you awake so that you feel more energized (perfect as the dark winter mornings approach). There is also an in built alarm just to make sure you wake up when you need to! In the evening, the light will gradually fade similar to nightfall, helping you to fall asleep in a more –relaxing way.

We’re offering Consultants a special offer on KenkoLight® from 2nd – 13th October 2017. Place a minimum wholesale order of 240pv or £250 retail and receive free standard shipping.The order must include KenkoLight® (item #1292).

This offer excludes International Site orders. Orders cannot be placed via PWP sites, orders can only be placed on MyNikken or with your Customer Service Team.

Certified by EcoCert – TRUE elements® Marine Organic Skincare

TE Eco Cert blog 25th SeptWhen a product is certified by EcoCert, it means the item has met the strict standards set for its specific category. EcoCert is an inspection and certification body established in France in 1991 by agronomists (those who study the science and technology of producing and using plants) who were aware of the need to develop environmentally friendly agriculture and the importance of recognising those committed to sustainable development in production.

Product categories open for certification include natural and organic cosmetics, natural and organic home perfumes, natural cleaning products, fair trade, ecological outdoor areas, organic textiles, eco-sustainable golf course, reforestation and solidarity, organic and ecological spa, ecological and recycled textiles, climate commitment and biodiversity commitment.

EcoCert has invested more than 10 years in a harmonisation project for cosmetic standards with European partners, BDIH (Germany), the Soil Association (UK), ICEA (Italy) and COSMEBIO (France). EcoCert has become a benchmark in organic certification worldwide.

In the EU, EcoCert is accredited by the Cofrac (French Accreditation Committee). In the USA, EcoCert is accredited by the USDA (US Department of Agriculture) for the National Organic Program (NOP) and in Japan; EcoCert is accredited by the MAFF (Agricultural Department) for the Japanese Agricultural Standard (JAS)

Companies voluntarily request EcoCert certification to prove:

  • Control and traceability throughout the supply chain.
  • Commitment to environmental protection.
  • Integrity of raw materials and ingredients.
  • High standards within the specific industry such as food or cosmetics.

TRUE elements® Marine Organic Skincare is certified by EcoCert, a distinction that very few products — even those labelled as “organic” — can claim. True Elements® Skincare products are derived from various seaweeds and are abundant in natural minerals that are well absorbed by skin. The entire premium skincare range is formulated with a combination of ingredients that work synergistically to offer remarkable benefits.

Install confidence in your customer’s skincare selection by telling them about the EcoCert logo and what it means.

Are you earning money with Nikken?

Are you earning money blog heading v3 US Version

If you are a Nikken Independent Consultant, you have the potential to earn money. Whether you’re working your Nikken business part-time or full time, you have the ability to generate income.

The formula for earning is simple. The more products you sell, the higher your sales volume and the more you earn. Unlike many other network-marketing companies, with Nikken you’re not expected to personally purchase products in order to earn money. Our business model encourages you to sell at least 500 points worth of product to customers every month, develop at least three frontline entrepreneurs who do the same and duplicate the process. As your organisation’s sales volume increases, you will naturally advance in rank and gain even more financial benefits.

When starting out it’s not necessary to think about rank advancement, if you stick to the simple formula, sell at retail. Sell a lot. It’s not often that a company lowers prices substantially and Nikken did just that a couple of years ago to help Consultants move lots of product and earn retail profits.

The Nutrition, Personal Care and Magnetic Support products have the lowest prices so new prospects will be able to try Nikken quality for a small expenditure. They’re what are known as “door openers” by our industry. Once people experience their superb benefits, they’ll naturally be interested in other products. As long as you do your job and follow up.

To make sure your monthly sales stay consistent and grow, get your customers to go on Autoship. That way they won’t run out of product, will receive a substantial price discount and you are guaranteed a certain amount of sales every month. Each customer you have on Autoship adds to your monthly volume. You can also think of Autoship as the easiest way to retain your customers. Again, you personally are not required to spend money on purchases.

As you continue to build a strong customer base, you should also be sponsoring people who want to earn an income instead of just purchasing products. You should start them off by explaining the merits of selling as many products at retail as possible and retaining their own customers by placing them on Autoship.

This may sound like facile training but the truth of the matter is that keeping it simple is what makes it work. Think of it this way: You’re giving people a deal that shouldn’t be passed up, great products that help create Active Wellness and a more balanced lifestyle.

The Ciaga®V_Story

Ciaga Organic September blog headingFor thousands of years, those who inhabit the remote reaches of the world have understood the value of highly nutritional fruits – ingredients that are familiar to us, as well as the exotic produce of faraway lands. Any of these fruits are a healthy addition to your diet. But the precise selection and combination of them can yield an outstanding range of nutrients. Nikken challenged a worldwide team of scientists and flavour experts to amplify the potency of these valuable foods and combine them in a nutritional supplement. The result is Ciaga®V. An unparalleled combination of the Maqui Berry from remote Patagonia, the Acai Berry native to Central and South America, Elderberry, Blackberry, Grape Seed extract and Raspberry – Ciaga®V _is an array of healthy phytonutrients.

Only Ciaga®V _provides this carefully chosen, balanced broad spectrum of ingredients in a 100% organic formulation. No artificial flavours. No artificial colours. No preservatives. No chemicals. Certified organic — nutrition as nature intended.

Ciaga®V unique formulation

An excellent source of Vitmains A, B and C. The foundation of Ciaga®V is the Organic Maqui-Acai fruit blend. Science has discovered that the Maqui Berry and Acai Berry have the highest ORAC values of any fruit – giving Ciaga®V an ORAC rating of more than 1500 units per 30ml. The Maqui and Acai Berry fusion also has very high levels of phenols and anthocyanins which, combined with other berries and extracts, give the remarkable blend of nutrients that Ciaga®V affords.

Natural in every way

Ciaga®V is an all-natural, certified-organic, 100% juice drink with no added preservatives and a naturally sweet flavour. The organic, fresh foods in Ciaga®V are harvested at the peak of their growth cycle. No pesticides, herbicides, artificial fertilisers or genetically modified organisms are used in the growing or processing. No sugar (only those naturally occuring from the natural ingredients), artificial colours or artificial flavors are added. Flash sterilizing and aseptic bottling allow Ciaga®V to be prepared without prolonged pasteurisation, to preserve the natural nutrients. Even the Ciaga®V container is healthy – for our planet. Ciaga®V bottles are made of an environmentally-friendly polymer that contains no bisphenol A or other potentially harmful chemicals and are easily recycled. Compared to glass, they require fewer resources to store and transport, for a smaller carbon footprint and reduced impact on natural resources. Serve 30ml chilled. Refrigerate after opening and consume within 30 days. Available on Autoship.

Pack of 2 x 946ml bottles (#2130)

Why go organic?

Organic September blog headingFor decades the Soil Association has worked to identify and highlight key tangible consumer benefits of organic food and farming.

Organic always means:

* Fewer pesticides
* No artificial colours & preservatives
* The highest standards of animal welfare
* No routine use of antibiotics
* GM Free Plus no manufactured herbicides or artificial fertilisers and more environmentally sustainable management of the land and natural environment – this means more wildlife!

 

Whatever you’re buying – from cotton buds to carrots – when you choose organic food, drink or beauty and textiles, you choose products that promote a better world.

Food as it should be

Organic food comes from trusted sources. Any food products labelled as organic must meet a strict set of standards, which define what farmers and food manufacturers can and cannot do in the production of organic food. All organic farms and food companies are inspected at least once a year and the standards for organic food are laid down in European law.

Look for the logo!

Going organic is easier than you’d think. Food, health, beauty and textile products that hold the Soil Association organic symbol have been produced to the highest possible animal welfare and environmental standards. Look for the logo!1

This September we are supporting the Soil Association’s ‘Organic Your September’ campaign. Nikken is proud to have Ciaga®ᵛ and Jade Greenzymes® both certified Organic by the Soil Association.
