The Path to Success…

Nikken is about more than innovative products – it also has a great Income Opportunity1. Income can be earned in a number of ways; selling to customers, getting new business partners on board who develop their own Nikken business, and using the Nikken Incentive programmes to maximise income potential. 

We’d like to congratulate Chantal Martin, one of our Independent Nikken Consultants in France.  She has built her Nikken business over the past few months, achieving Silver rank in August and Gold in September AND won the High 5 Incentive. We asked Chantal what her favourite products are and how she built her business and achieved her rank advancements. This is her story: 

“Hello, I am Chantal Martin, 68, a retired shopkeeper from Vichy, France. I became an Independent Nikken Consultant in January 2018, after a very positive experience while testing the Nikken Sleep System.

I was very pleased with how I felt after using the Sleep System and wanted to purchase one for myself, as well as try more Nikken products, so I purchased the complete Sleep System and PiMag Water Fountain. I also use the Jade GreenZymes®, KENZEN Super Ciaga®, KVB® Natural Food Mix and the TRUE elements® Marine Organic Skincare. I use these products every day – they are now my essentials! 

I became very aware that I was actually responsible for my own health by choice – and not by chance. I attended workshops and discovered how I could share ways of living an active wellness lifestyle with others too.  

I introduced Nikken to people who wanted an additional income, with minimal investment, and who wanted to be part of a Team. Our Team currently consists of: two Consultants – who reached Executive rank in two months and won the Power Start Incentive. Their small initial investment has now been returned to them in products. And a Consultant – who has reached Silver rank in just two months and already, has his own team of 3 people. 

We are aiming to achieve the PARAGON prize by the end of December. We’ve achieved what we have so far with help and support from Marie and Jean Marie and their participation in our three business presentations.

I am now Gold rank. One of my beliefs is in helping others. Nothing we do is ever a waste of our time, we cannot help everyone, but we will be able to help someone. Nobody has ever become poor by giving. With hard work, perseverance and courage, we can get there. The only way to fail is to give up before reaching the goal. Be grateful for each difficulty you encounter – it could be the gift which will help you grow. The difference between a successful person and others is not lack of strength, nor lack of knowledge – but rather a lack of willpower.

Thank you and GO! GO!”

Be a champion to your natural defence system

Seasonal immunity

On Sunday, 28thOctober 2018 the clocks go back one hour, which means we are truly heading towards the Winter season.

Researchers speculate that since our internal body clock, also known as our circadian rhythm, is affected by changes in daylight, that the seasonal variation of the immune system is also caused by environmental cues, such as daylight and temperature.

Have you ever noticed how healthy you feel in the summer, while certain conditions tend to flare up around the winter months? This isn’t the result of more time spent at the beach, but rather seasonal changes in how our immune system functions.

A recent study1, conducted at the University of Cambridge, has revealed that the activation of around a quarter of our genes, associated with the human immune system, is influenced by the time of the year. Seasonal differences were present across mixed populations in geographically and ethnically diverse locations. However, the pattern of seasonal activity was not reflected as strongly in the Icelandic population. The researchers speculate that this may be due to the near-24 hour daylight during summer and near-24 hour darkness in winter.

As winter approaches, it’s important to maintain a strong and balanced immune system. Taking additional food supplements can help, as can a variety of other activities, such as:

1. Eat a hearty breakfast. Winter is the perfect season for a warm breakfast like porridge. Eating a bowl of warm porridge on a cold morning isn’t just a delicious way to start your day, but it also helps boost your intake of fibre.

2. Get outdoors in the natural daylightas much as possible. Walking for just 20 minutes a day can help maintain your immune system.

3. Consume more fruit and vegetables. Kenzen Super Ciaga® exclusively from Nikken, is an organic super fruit juice concentrate that is not only delicious on its own, but also makes a great mixer with water whilst helping your immune system. The numerous organic berries in the formula are harvested at the peak of their growth cycle for high potency and a natural sweetness. A healthy immune system depends on a balanced mix of vitamins and minerals over time. Nikken’s Kasai® Multi-Vitamin and Minerals provides a supportive range of vitamins and minerals, as well as the associated phytonutrients and nutritional matrices, to help count towards your daily nutritional needs.

Winter can take a toll on our mind, body and soul – so make sure you take time to look after yourself both inside and out.

This September… celebrate all things Organic!

OS-Home-EmailBanner1Organic food has become very popular. The term “organic” refers to the way agricultural products are grown and processed. How your food is grown or raised could have a major impact on your health as well as the environment. Organic foods often have more beneficial nutrients, such as antioxidants, than their conventionally grown counterparts.

Here are some of the benefits of going Organic:

Organic produce contains fewer pesticides. Chemicals such as fungicides, herbicides, and insecticides are widely used in conventional agriculture and residues remain on (and in) the food we eat.

Organic food is often fresher because it doesn’t contain preservatives that make it last longer. Organic products are usually produced on smaller farms near where it is sold. This way, by going organic you support the local economy.

Organic farming is better for the environment. Organic farming practices reduce pollution, conserve water, reduce soil erosion, increase soil fertility and use less energy. Farming without pesticides is also better for the nearby wildlife as well as people who live close to farms.

Organically raised animals are NOT given antibiotics, growth hormones, or fed animal by-products. Feeding livestock animal by-products increases the risk of mad cow disease (BSE) and the use of antibiotics can create antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria. Organically raised animals are given more space to move around and access to the outdoors, which help to keep them healthy.

Organic meat and milk are richer in certain nutrients. Results of a 2016 European studyshow that levels of certain nutrients, including omega-3 fatty acids, were up to 50 % higher in organic meat and milk than in conventionally raised versions.

Organic food is GMO-free. Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) or genetically engineered (GE) foods are plants whose DNA has been altered in ways that cannot occur in nature or in traditional crossbreeding, most commonly in order to be resistant to pesticides or produce an insecticide.

Did you know? 2

  1. 43 % of the amount of British food was found to contain pesticide residues by Government testing in 2015.
  2. 98 % of the research conducted suggests pesticide use would drop in England and Wales if all farming was organic.
  3. 50 % is the average increase in wildlife on organic farms.

This September, Nikken is supporting the Soil Association’s “Organic Your September” campaign and is proud to have the Kenzen Super Ciaga® (#17001) and Jade GreenZymes®(#20310 / #20311) both certified Organic by the Soil Association.

It’s simple – more people buying organic food means more organic farms. More organic farms mean fewer pesticides, more wildlife and more animals raised under the highest standards.

The choices you make with the food you eat have an impact on the world you live in. Switching to just one organic item can really help contribute to changing our food system for the better.

NEW… KENZEN Super Ciaga®

Super Ciaga BLog banner GC

We hear about antioxidants all the time… and we know they are good for us. But why are they good and how do they work? Relative to antioxidants, we hear a lot about free radicals. Here’s why:

Antioxidants are natural substances that may slow or even prevent damage to the body’s cells. Our bodies contain natural antioxidants in the form of vitamins, minerals and hormones. Our immune system uses these natural antioxidants to fight “threats” such as pollutants, toxins, radiation and UV light. Importantly, antioxidants fight and work to reverse the damage caused by free radicals that wreak havoc in our bodies and are the leading cause of premature aging.1

Free radicals are bad cells that are unstable and reactive. They enter our bodies as we breathe in polluted air and cigarette smoke; they creep in from unclean water; they’re generated when we’re under prolonged stress or suffering from illness; they even come in the form of unhealthy diets. Every metabolic reaction that involves oxygen has the potential to generate free radicals and if nothing is done, inflammation and arterial wall damage are the end results.2

Even though our bodies contain natural antioxidants, we obviously need more support to maintain Active Wellness in our increasingly polluted world. That’s where the elderberry can play a starring role.

The elderberry is generally traced back to Hippocrates, the Greek known as the “father of medicine.” He described it as his “medicine chest” for its wide variety of health benefits. Over the centuries, elderberry has been used to help treat colds, flu, fever, burns, cuts and more than 70 other conditions.3

In 2007, the US Department of Agriculture looked at the oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) or overall antioxidant capability of various berries. That is, which berries were the most effective at attacking damaging free radicals? Elderberry had higher ORAC values than blackberry, blueberry, cranberry, raspberry and strawberry, which also are relatively high in antioxidants.4

With such a high ORAC, it’s no wonder that elderberries are known as excellent immune system boosters. Your local pharmacy or health shop is likely to have an array of elderberry supplements. Numerous studies have demonstrated that elderberry extract is highly effective in mitigating flu-like symptoms and shortening the duration of colds.5

Research published in the Journal of Nutrition show that elderberry extract helps expedite the process of clearing excess sugar from the bloodstream and into muscles and the liver, thereby helping to maintain normal levels of blood sugar.6 Studies also show that Sambucus (the scientific name for elderberry) has natural diuretic and laxative effects, which helps the body decrease fluid retention and constipation.7

KENZEN Super Ciaga® contains a mighty medley of berries. In scientific testing the Maqui Berry, from the forests of Patagonia, are shown to have some of the highest ORAC (antioxidant) value of any fruits and exceptionally high levels of anthocyanins. Elderberry, which is an excellent source of vitamins A, B and C, provides substantial support with an ORAC value of 14,500 per 100g serving of fresh fruit. Blueberry, blackberry and raspberry add to the overall ORAC value as well as enhancing flavour with their natural sweetness. Kenzen Super Ciaga® is a delicious way to ingest some powerful antioxidants!

Here is what you can look forward to with new KENZEN Super Ciaga®:

  • High ORAC hydro (antioxidant) values – 3,500+ units per 30 ml
