Get a goodnight’s sleep

Sleep Promo - Blog Heading ENG

As the dark nights of winter set in, we can sometimes feel like we have less energy; one way to help combat this could be to get more sleep!  We all live such hectic lives, that this may seem like an impossible task but making some simple adjustments to your sleep environment may mean you wake up feeling like you have more energy, better concentration and feeling happier.

These changes won’t happen after a single early night. If you’ve had months of restricted sleep, you might have built up a significant sleep debt, so expect recovery to take several weeks. To begin with, ensure your bedroom is a relaxing and confortable space. ‘Your bed may have deteriorated by as much as 70% from its ‘as new’ state after 10 years. Even beds as little as six years old could offer significantly less support and comfort than a new one, thanks to wear and tear not just from body weight and movement but also sweat and debris such as skin and hair.’[1]

This does not mean that you need to rush out and buy a new bed, but it may be time to try a mattress topper. You can transform your current mattress with the Naturest® Kenkopad®. Made from ecologically sound and renewable non-allergic latex, natural materials and RAM® Magnetic technology; it also helps with temperature regulation as you sleep.

To catch up on sleep; try to add on an extra hour or two, perhaps at the weekend. Start your bedtime routine earlier and go to bed when you’re tired, allowing your body to wake you up naturally in the morning. For extra comfort try the KenkoDream® Quilt  KenkoDream® Quilt  and Naturest® Pillow. The revolutionary technology in the KenkoDream® Quilt, helps to regulate temperature whilst the Naturest® Pillow is fully adjustable with an internal collar to help towards achievinge the most comfortable position. Isn’t time you had a really good nights sleep?

Autumn Skincare Tips

Autumn Skincare blog headingAutumn is an ideal time to correct any summer skin damage that may have occurred and to prepare for winter. Here are some tips on how you could help maintain a hydrated complexion during the autumn and winter months.

  1. Choose a scrub/exfoliant that sloughs off dead skin but is gentle and helps stimulate natural oil production. Use True elements® Marine Organic Skincare, Radiance Scrub, once or twice a week to buff the skin. This gentle facial scrub may help remove dead skin cells and may allow the seaweed extracts to help boost hydration and energise the skin.
  2. Use a gentle cleanser such as True elements® Marine Organic Skincare, Velvet Cleansing Milk. It’s free from synthetic fragrances, parabens, mineral oils, phthalates, artificial colouring and preservatives. It provides gentle cleansing, that works with your natural pH balance to nourish the skin while removing impurities.
  3. True elements® Marine Organic Skincare, Nutritional Mask contains aloe vera to moisturise the epidermis, and hyaluronic acid plumps from the inside out, stimulating the synthesis of collagen which may help the skin appear firmer and smoother.
  4. As the air becomes drier, be sure to use a moisturiser to help reduce water loss from the skin. True elements® Marine Organic Skincare, Nourishing Face Cream is specifically formulated to moisturise the upper epidermis and to help soften and smooth the skin.

At the very heart of Nikken’s TRUE elements® skincare range is a synergic blend of organic seaweeds and coastline plants, making our formulas unique.

Don’t forget that skincare can make a thoughtful Christmas present, so if you are not treating yourself, why not treat a friend or family member to luxurious True elements® Marine Organic Skincare?

What are Brown Rice Solids?

Brown Rice blog heading v2

Most health enthusiasts know it is more beneficial to eat brown rice than white rice. Brown rice by itself is rich in minerals such as iron, zinc, manganese, calcium, selenium, phosphorus, magnesium and potassium. It also contains natural fibres that may help digestion. Brown rice fits in perfectly with the Nikken Active Wellness lifestyle. But have you heard of brown rice solids?

Brown rice solids are basically functional protein ingredients that are processed from sprouted brown rice following organic methods. When the rich protein content that is distributed between the bran and endosperm layer is concentrated and dried, brown rice solids are generated. They provide a high level of naturally occurring nutrients, such as potassium and magnesium. Even if you’ve never heard of brown rice solids before, Nikken has done the research for you, to ensure you have access to the best in food technology.

Brown rice solids are one of only four ingredients that make up our Kenzen Ten4® Matcha Green Tea. As with labelling protocol, ingredients appear in descending order: organic matcha green tea powder, organic brown rice solids, kiwi powder (fruit) and organic stevia extract (leaf).

So what is the significance of brown rice solids in Kenzen Ten4® Matcha Green Tea Drink?

Find out with our guide below:

Brown rice solids:

  1. Are hypoallergenic; they have a mildly sweet taste and are easily digestible
  2. Contain essential and non-essential amino acids and are a quickly oxidized natural energy source.
  3. Provide a sustained supply of energy without experiencing the symptoms of low-blood sugar that can impede performance.
  4. Contain a wealth of vitamins, including B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B6 (folate) vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol) and vitamin K. Vitamins B and E are known for their energising properties and vitamin K is important in its support of bone health.

Kenzen Ten4® Matcha Green Tea Drink can be enjoyed on its own, can be added to smoothies or even to cakes for a subtle colour and flavour. It is also included as part of the Everyday Weight Management pack.

Don’t forget we are offering FREE shipping on the Everyday Weight Management Pack (# 8801 + # 8802) when ordered between 25th October – 31st December 2017.  This offer applies to retail, wholesale and Autoship orders. * Terms and Conditions apply (see MyNikken for further details or ask your Nikken Independent Consultant).

The rise in popularity of plant-based protein

Plant based blog headingOne of the latest trends in foods is the plant-based diet. Supermarkets and restaurants are well aware of this trend, resulting in more plant-based options than ever before. A plant based diet is not necessarily a vegetarian diet but is primarily based on foods derived from plants, including vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds, legumes and fruits, but with few or no animal products.

The benefits of eating a plant-based diet extend past just health and sustainability. In fact, plant-based proteins can be as nutritious as meat but contain far less fat. As a consequence, companies are producing innovative plant-based “complete” proteins and supplements. These innovative plant proteins are an ideal part of an Active Wellness lifestyle.

The good news is that plant-based proteins are easily accessible. Legumes are widely known to provide high amounts of protein, e.g., organic tofu, lentils, black beans, lima beans, organic peas, chickpeas and so on. Nuts and seeds— such as almonds, cashews, walnuts, pumpkin seeds and chia seeds—are also known sources of protein.

Nikken continues to be a pioneer in organic nutrition. One of our first organic nutritional supplements contains multiple benefits other than just providing plant-based protein: Organic Jade Greenzymes® is made with a proprietary blend of organic young barley grass, organic acacia and organic pearl barley.

New to our range, KVB® Natural Food Mix is a healthy meal replacement mix. Use as a base and add PiMag® water, non-fat milk, almond milk or coconut milk. For a variation add fruit or vegetable and blend. Our new KVB® formula contains naturally sourced proteins from organic peas, organic moringa powder, organic spirulina, as well as organic vegetables, prebiotics and probiotics.

Discover more about our Everyday Organic-based Weight Management Programme and products and how it can help you to eat well and live well every day.

Eat well and live well everyday

The NEW Nikken Everyday Organic-Based Weight Management is based on three basic assertions for a healthy lifestyle: Cleanse, Balance and Energise. It’s simple and convenient.

The latest new products in the Nikken range are all crucial components in the new Everyday Organic-Based Weight Management Pack, along with Kenzen Ten4® Matcha Green Tea Drink.

Kenzen® Cleansedx is a gluten-free, 100% organic nutritional supplement, which may contribute to the support or maintenance of normal liver function and digestion. Featuring organic Roasted Chicory Root, Milk Thistle extract, Turmeric extract, Bupleurum extract, Shisandra and Ashwaghanda. Each of these organic ingredients serves multiple purposes on its own, but together, work in synergy. Simply take three capsules every day 20 minutes before a meal.

In the know: Used for more than 2,000 years to support the liver naturally, Milk Thistle gets its name from the white fluid that comes from the plant’s leaves when they’re crushed.

KVB® Natural Food Mix in Vanilla or Chocolate flavour are formulated with naturally-sourced protein from organic pea, organic rice and organic chlorella. Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian or just health-conscious, KVB® helps you put plant protein into your diet.

To create a nourishing breakfast, snack or lunch, use KVB® Natural Food Mix as a base and add PiMag® water, non-fat milk, almond milk or coconut milk. For a delicious variation add your choice of fruit or vegetables and then blend until smooth.

In the know: We tend to associate protein with animal sources: meat, poultry and seafood. However, in the East legumes have also long been key sources of protein: soy, garbanzo, lentil, bean sprouts, pea sprouts, adzuki bean and so on.

Kenzen Ten4® Matcha Green Tea Drink contains 80 mg per serving of natural caffeine from organic matcha green tea. The natural caffeine in organic matcha green tea binds to the naturally occurring phytonutrients to slow down the absorption of the stimulant, giving it a slow release effect. Kenzen Ten4® Matcha Green Tea Drink is a great way to help energise and hydrate you.

In the know: Natural sources of caffeine include seeds, leaves, nuts and berries.

We are offering FREE shipping on the Everyday Weight Management Pack when ordered between 25th October – 31st December 2017. This offer applies to retail, wholesale and Autoship orders. * Terms and Conditions apply (see MyNikken for further details).

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.
