Two Best Ways to Buy EarthWater

Fulhum Family.jpg

Greetings, readers of the weekly EarthWater blog!  Today I wanted to highlight two different ways you can purchase EarthWater and help you decide where you should be stocking up on our products.  As many of you may know, we recently ended our own EarthWater Affiliate Marketing program as we transitioned into a partnership with PURE to make EarthWater products available to their extensive network of Independent Business Owners.  Since then, you may have gotten confused on how to continue purchasing EarthWater with the attached business opportunity.  Hopefully I can help clear things up for you today!

 

#1: Amazon Retail Purchase Option

EarthWater has been available on Amazon for about 2 years now and we are so proud to have such an incredible partner to help sell our products in over 121 countries worldwide!  Buying on Amazon could not be simpler.  All you need to do is navigate to this link, select the EarthWater product you wish to purchase, and enjoy FREE 2-day shipping with an Amazon Prime membership.

 

EarthWater Ready-to-Drink Case: $79.99

EarthWater Carton of Mineral Concentrate Packets: $129.99

EarthWater Pop-Tops: $149.00

 

This purchase option is for those of you who just wish to buy EarthWater products at the retail pricing and who are not interested in pursuing a business opportunity with PURE or purchasing EarthWater at a wholesale rate.  Thus, bringing us to Option number two!

#2: PURE Wholesale Purchase & Business Opportunity

sociallogo2.png

On September 17th of this year, EarthWater signed an agreement with PURE to allow the global distribution of our products to their network of 45,000+ people.  When you purchase EarthWater through PURE’s website, you are presented the opportunity to not only be able to buy EarthWater at a wholesale cost, but also engage in a business opportunity where you can earn extra income by sharing EarthWater and PURE products.

You can think of this purchasing option like a Costco or a Sam’s Club membership.  You pay an annual fee, in PURE’s case it is a $25 first-time annual enrollment fee; $10 annual renewal fee, and you are able to unlock wholesale pricing on not only EarthWater, but ALL other incredible products available on the PURE network.

If you would like to sign up to become part of the PURE network, whether you would like to just enjoy EarthWater at wholesale pricing or if you would like to join in on the excellent business opportunity, simply go to www.livepure.com/tristar to sign up and obtain more information on the amazing benefits that come with your new membership!

EW Ambassador: Bo Marchionte

Picture1.png

Meet Bo, a guy who just loves to run and loves his EarthWater. In fact, he loves running so much that he’s been doing it every single day, straight, since 1998. We think that’s pretty cool, so we asked him some questions.

1.     It's obvious that you love running, which is why you’ve done it every day since 01.04.98. So, I can’t help but ask, Why? How did this start and what has kept you going every day for more than 20 years now?

Cal Ripken Jr. had his consecutive streak in baseball back in the 90’s and it kind of coincided with that. During that time, he was as iconic as any athlete in sports today. I knew I was never going to be the fastest and run the farthest but figured this would be an accomplishment if I could reach his consecutive game streak by running at least three miles per day. I would go a few days, maybe like 13 days in a row then then miss, but I finally decided to get serious about it and go after Cal, which luckily, I reached and surpassed, thankfully. 

2.     Do you ever get tired of running or perhaps think about switching exercises?

Ironically no, my love has never been more intense. It is an addiction. The day before I’m already engaging in my head when and how far I plan on running. It is comical and maybe just sad how antsy I can get if I get with back-to-back three-mile days. I get nuts!

In regard to other sports I love them all but I’m a little reluctant to do some for the fear of getting hurt and not being able to run. Plus, I did some indoor soccer leagues when I was young, and guys were out there trying to dismantle your body. Wasn’t worth it.

3.     Do you run even when you’re injured or sick or out of town?

Yes, I’ve been sick just like everyone else, thanking the big man above that he has allowed me to avoid anything catastrophic. An ankle twist years ago, brought me to tears I thought I broke it. Arrived home my wife took me to the emergency and they took x-rays that came back negative. I told the doctor about the streak at that time and he shrugged his shoulders and said something along the lines, “you’re going anyway so what is the use of telling you to stay off it.”

When I’m out of town, I preplan routes and places I can go from where I’m staying. It is always one of my favorite things because you get a lay of the land that is avoided by cab or treadmill (which I never use). Love seeing a cool restaurant or shop on my run. Then after I clean up I know that around the block or up the road is a cool place I want to visit.  

The one run I get scorched about the most is the day our first born arrived. The doctor gave my wife an epidural and was informed that it would be a few hours before delivery. Laced up the shoes and out the door I went. Looking back might have been the best idea but in the moment she was napping and really just sitting there was all I was gonna do. Twenty minutes and bing, bang boom and it is done. 

4.     You look like you’re in incredible shape. Is that just from running or do you also do other stuff? Have you always been physically fit?

Thanks for the kind words. Far from incredible shape trust me on that. The passion is running and I do some sit-ups and push-ups. Never had a gym membership or lifted. I just like the freedom to lace them up and go out the front door and boom I’m in instance workout mode. Played soccer growing up and like most kids growing up, you are usually made to run when you mess up so I did not like running growing up at all. It was viewed as a punishment. Around 19 or 20 years old I began to tinker with it. It would be like two in the morning I’d be watching ESPN and decide to go running. Maybe half a mile but it was sporadic. Eventually a routine was developed. A little over three miles each day but not every day. Then finally I wanted to go streaking.  

5.     What is your resting heart rate?

No idea to be honest. I tell people all the time, I absolutely love running but I’m not what most people call a ‘runner’. People will say their glutes are tight and honestly, I’m like where are my glutes. Embarrassing to admit but it is the truth. I just run.  

6.     What is your typical running regimen? (average distance per day, max & min, time of day, etc.)

The goal each day is 8-10 miles, which doesn’t happen every day. One day might be three miles and the next day 14 miles. The least amount I go is three miles or 30 minutes. I keep a running calculator in my head that lasts seven to ten days, so I meet my goals of 60 to 80 miles per week. Typically, in the morning but not too early is when I run. It does vary from day to day. One day might be 9am the next 2pm.

7.     What's your favorite place to run at? Where do you dream of running?

Every day running it is Mill Creek Park in Youngstown, Ohio. About an hour away is the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, which host the Burning River 100 Endurance Race, which is rooted deep in my heart. Places I have on the Bucket List is The Behind the Rocks Ultra in Moab, Utah and the Great Wall of China Marathon is right up there. Following the No. 23 Earthwater racing car driven by Gray Gaulding on Instagram, gets my imagination thinking some running laps around Daytona or Talladega would be an ideal way to spend my running day. 

8.     What is the longest time/distance you’ve run in one go?

Fortunately, I’ve been able to finish four out of the five 100-mile races I signed up for that remain very dear to me for so many reasons. Those type of races allow you to meet so many wonderful people via the other runners and volunteers. The bonding and encouragement from total strangers when you are at your lowest point are memories that so special. The next race I have is a 30k or 18.6 miles and I’ll have plenty of Earthwater on hand for when I hit the aid stations. 

9.     What advice would you give those who are training to run for long distances?

My advice is if you can run a 5k then you can run a 10k. That means you can run a half-marathon and that means you can run a full marathon. I tell everyone the farther you go, it just means the pain is worse and most likely your average pace will slow dramatically (lolol). I’ve witnessed so many friends and family members who never dreamt of running a 5k and finishing. Then they eventually have a wonderful medal placed around their neck after running 26.2 miles. It takes most people time to build up to those distances, but it can be achieved. 

10.  Lastly, if you would, how do you like Earthwater?

Love it! Came across it after a run about a year ago and was interested after I saw the bottle. When I asked the other runner about it, he gave me one of his own to try and I really enjoyed it. Loved the fact that is wasn’t packed with sugar and I believe most people truly love the taste of water after a workout. We drink other things besides water after a workout because of what is in the particular drink. Earthwater taste great and has those natural supplements our bodies crave after a workout. I’m confident in saying this because I’m literally running every single day that I feel better before, during and after my runs. A little extra appears to resonate in your performance once you have been drinking it for extended time (few days). Truly feel that anyone who is serious about diet or exercise should use and feel the benefits of the product. I joke about it, but I feel like Popeye getting his spinach when I open an Earthwater bottle.

Top 5 Favorite Uses of EarthWater Mineral Concentrate Packets

 
Packets Trans.png
 

EarthWater Nation, it is with great pleasure that I am able to announce that… IT IS FRIDAY!  It has been another great week over here at EarthWater HQ and for this edition of our Weekly Blog, we wanted to share with you our Top 5 Favorite Uses of our beloved EarthWater Mineral Concentrate Packets.  This is my personal favorite on our product line and this entry has been long overdue!

When reading these 5 uses, it is important to understand that EACH PACKET is formulated to be used with 20 fluid oz. of liquid and IS NOT meant to be consumed on its own straight from the packet.  We HIGHLY recommend mixing the contents of the packet with the beverage of your choosing.  Additionally, I must include that you do not need to use the packet all at once! It is incredibly easy and common to just use a portion of the packet depending on how much liquid you mix with and fold the top to save it for another use!

Without further ado, please enjoy our Top 5 List of our favorite uses of our packets:

1.     EarthWater Packet + Protein Powder

Simply mix/combine ½ of the EarthWater concentrate packet with a scoop of your protein of choice (the office favorite is the PURE 360 Complete powder) and 10oz of purified water or milk of choice!

2.     EarthWater Packet + Coffee

This is a really close second favorite for me and I do it almost every morning.  Use ¼ - ½ of the EarthWater packet and mix it with your morning coffee (works with hot and cold)! It’s a great way to start the day off right! 

3.     EarthWater Packet + Juices/Smoothie

When making juices or smoothies, I typically combine 1-2 cups of veggies with 1-1 ½ cups of fruit with about ¾ - 1 cup of purified water.  I then add in ¾ - a full EarthWater packet and blend until I have a perfect mix. 

4.     EarthWater Packet + Tea

Similar to coffee, I typically mix in ¼ - ½ of the EarthWater packet with a cup of tea.  However, in the Texas Summers, you best believe we’re drinking Iced Sweet Tea in a 20oz bottle with a FULL packet of EarthWater mineral concentrate.

5.     The Classic… EarthWater + Regular Purified Water

When I’m at a restaurant with friends or I am traveling and don’t want to bring the EarthWater bottles with me, the EarthWater concentrate packets work PERFECTLY to ensure I am getting the most out of the water I’m drinking and that I am absorbing all the nutrients my body is needing.  Be sure to understand that each packet is formulated to be mixed with 20 fluid oz. of purified water, so mix accordingly.

That’s it for me this week, folks.  I hope you have enjoyed this blog and hope you have a healthy and hydrated weekend!  Thank you as always for tuning in and I will see you again this week! 

DISCLAIMER - DO NOT use EarthWater concentrate packets with carbonated beverages.

12 Potential Benefits from Trace Minerals

Mo Minerals No Problems.jpg

BENEFIT #1: HEALING OF SKIN, ORGANS AND MUSCLES FROM WOUNDS, BURNS AND BRUISES

(results may vary)

Retinol, Vitamin B and Copper are necessary for each step in the healing process. When they are combined with Fulvic Acid and Silicon, inflammation is reduced and the formation of new tissue is enhanced. Vitamin E and C work closely together to repair and protect damaged skin tissues too as well as retain moisture. The body does not produce its own Vitamin C, so we need to get it from dietary sources – like EarthWater! Humins and Humic Acids have antibacterial and antiviral properties6. Those acids even replace the standard antibiotics in some animal agriculture. With respect to skin conditions, you may apply it directly to the problem to speed up the tissue regeneration.

 

BENEFIT #2: STRONG BONES AND JOINTS, ANTI-INFLAMMATION AND ARTHRITIS REMEDY

(results may vary)

Cuprum, Nickel, Calcium, Manganese, Silicon and Strontium are not only responsible for making bones and joints stronger, they also help in building resilience against various forms of arthritis and osteoporosis. Magnesium deficiency causes chronic inflammation. EarthWater products may supply your body with extra Magnesium to prevent this. Potassium is also found in EarthWater products and aids in retaining a healthy bone mineral density by helping calcium to remain inside your bones. Taking EarthWater products together with turmeric and ginger increases their effectiveness against serious forms of arthritis.

 

BENEFIT #3: HEART, BLOOD AND CIRCULATION

(results may vary)

EarthWater has plenty of iron, which in combination with copper, plays a major role in transporting oxygen in our body. Cobalt is an essential element for making red blood cells after converting to Vitamin B12. Potassium balances the negative effects of excessive salt intake, and reduces “bad” LDL cholesterol. Together with calcium, they regulate the heartbeat. These may be key factors to improving and sustaining healthy blood pressure. There is also plenty of research that links Vitamin E to reducing the risk of heart diseases as well as protecting against atherosclerosis.

  

BENEFIT #4: IMMUNE FUNCTION AND METAL CHELATION

(results may vary)

The minerals housed within EarthWater will not only bolster your immune system, but they will aid in removing heavy metals and other toxins from your body. Manganese, Molybdenum, Iron, Zinc and Copper are all vital for the creation of enzymes, such as Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), Glutathione and Catalase. All three of these enzymes function as the body’s primary antioxidant defense against oxidative stress and constitute a huge part of our immune system. A deficiency in them is closely associated with rapid aging. These enzymes are also essential for ameliorating toxicity and removing all toxins from your system. Silver is a potent antimicrobial metal which swiftly acts to destroy many pathogens. This is the reason why those of Royal blood would often eat off silver plates and use silver cutlery. EarthWater yields perfectly-sized nanoparticles of silver in trace amounts, which are more potent and do not cause health problems – a concern when ingesting sizeable amounts or micro-sized particles.

BENEFIT #5: ANTI STRESS, DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY

(results may vary)

For those who suffer from depression, their zinc level is likely to be low. EarthWater boasts a lot of natural zinc, which is also required by more than 300 enzymes in our body. We don’t get enough zinc in a modern diet, and our bodies are not able to store much of it either. Hence, we need a small, but regular supply of this metal to stay healthy. Two additional important elements are magnesium and potassium. Both of these minerals lower blood pressure, muscle tension and heart rate. Together with zinc, this may be a great solution to relieve stress and anxiety. For some of us, it works as a natural and healthy replacement for prescription drugs or antidepressants.

 

BENEFIT #6: BLOOD SUGAR AND DIABETES

(results may vary)

Calcium, magnesium, and zinc may reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. The major role of magnesium is to control blood glucose levels. A recent study found that 25% or more of diabetic patients were deficient in magnesium. The role of zinc in diabetes has not been directly identified, however, a study from Harvard Health looked at how zinc levels influenced the risk for women. They found that a higher zinc level was associated with a slightly reduced risk of type 2 diabetes. The proper balance of calcium may also reduce the risk of diabetes by 33%. Chromium is another very important trace element present inside Fulvic Minerals which has a potent effect on those with diabetes. When Chromium is present inside the body, less insulin is required for glucose metabolism! Although little is known about it, research suggests that Vanadium plays a role in regulating sugar metabolism and cholesterol – more reasons to want EarthWater products every day!

 

BENEFIT #7: REJUVENATION

(results may vary)

The fact that EarthWater products could be life-giving and rejuvenating supplement for plants cannot be overemphasized. In studies, humic substances (such as found in EarthWater) have enhanced root and shoot growth every time. Anyone can prove it to themselves just by applying EarthWater mixed with water, to their healthy or weak plants. You’ll be amazed at the results. There is not enough available research to show exactly what it is that makes EarthWater work for all life forms. We do know, however, that as we age we accumulate damaged cells and deplete our overall bodily trace mineral stores, which make our tissues and organs weak. EarthWater helps our cells to be more stable and healthy. It may even replace the damaged tissue with new tissue indirectly by replenishing our trace mineral balance. It may not be the Fountain of Youth but it’s comforting to know that some of the damage can be undone. We think that EarthWater products can boost the production of the hormones that typically decline with age. The body may begin to respond as it once did when it was younger, and some bodily functions may be restored or repaired. The success of EarthWater products is determined by trace mineral absorption, your immune system, gut health, genetic complications, as well as numerous environmental factors, which is typically why results vary. However, we are sure that everyone will find it beneficial, if not life-changing!

 

BENEFIT #8: SKIN CARE AND WRINKLES

(results may vary)

Manganese slows down the aging of the skin and the development of wrinkles. It also improves the tensile strength and elasticity of the skin. Copper makes skin healthier by promoting collagen. It is a protein produced by the cells to ‘hold’ the skin together, promoting skin regeneration and reducing wrinkles. Deficiency of copper is also linked to depigmentation of the skin. Silicon is another important component of collagen formation as well as one of the most abundant trace minerals in EarthWater. Without collagen, your skin would perpetually sag! Organic selenium and zinc have a general role in normal skin development and function. They protect skin from UV radiation, providing a safe and effective means to reduce UVR exposure. People with a lack of these elements may have skin abnormalities. To use EarthWater for the skin, you can apply it externally like a cream or ingest it internally to promote collagen production. Though there is little scientific evidence to warrant oral or topical supplementation for the skin, there are many anecdotal reports claiming major success!

 

BENEFIT #9: HAIR AND SKIN, SHOWER GEL SUPPLEMENTATION

(results may vary)

Many hair experts believe that human hair was healthier 100 years ago. The food was full of nutrients and there were no shampoos with harsh detergents that strip the natural oils from the scalp. Chemically treated water also possesses many harsh chemicals that often contribute to hair loss. EarthWater can enrich your shower soap with a variety of needed elements that our modern diet simply doesn’t supply. One of the important metals is copper. It may calm your scalp and help hair growth. Copper also may increase your hair’s natural pigmentation. Manganese, selenium, and zinc play an important role in healthy skin, including the scalp. To be most effective, you should take EarthWater internally as well as mixing it with your shampoo or shower gel. Argan or Emu Oil together with EarthWater products may multiply the positive effect for hair health. You can also try using organic shampoos and take extra care not to wash your hair too often. Your hair can go much longer between washings, without becoming too oily. Showering less frequently, filtering the water supply leading into your house and using a cooler temperature are also better for skin and hair health. If you are going to filter your water, make sure to use a system that replenishes trace minerals – or better yet, use EarthWater products instead!

  

BENEFIT #10: LONGEVITY, POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANT

(results may vary)

Some EarthWater trace minerals act as master antioxidants in the body, meaning that they can positively affect our immune system and protect against oxidative stress. Firstly, copper. Besides its role in collagen production, it also serves as an antioxidant that helps skin fight free radicals. It neutralizes the ions that may damage the skin cells. A lack of magnesium is one of many situations that contribute to age-related diseases including arthritis and other forms of chronic inflammation. A constant source of Magnesium equates enough of an antioxidant capacity to withstand free-radical damage, even in an aged individual. Fulvic Acid itself plays a role as one of the most powerful antioxidants, reducing the damage incurred by free radicals that are produced by your body in response to oxidative stress, certain foods and environmental factors. Finally, the carotenoids retinol and terpenoids plus Vitamin E are all potent antioxidants. These make EarthWater products a powerful organic substance that may prevent or delay cell damage from oxidation. Just as an engineer may separate a model into its various components, we separate our EarthWater into a set of main minerals and acids in order to explain how it works. A model would not work if a single piece is missing, just as a piece is useless without a model.

What Can Music Therapy Do for Your Mental Health?

Mental health affects so many of us, and you may not realise it now, but you are not alone. It sounds cliché, but it is also very true, and we need to remember that. Music has helped many of us through really hard times, but what would you say if we told you that it could also be used as a form of therapy? Music therapy is a fast-growing way of expressing yourself and working through mental health issues – and it might be just what you need. Why not read on and see what you think?

What is Music Therapy?

The way it works is that it allows you to express yourself in a new and relaxed manner, so there is no pressure on you to speak directly with a therapist, and you can work through feelings at your own pace. You have the option to go for group therapy, so you can interact with others, or just have a one on one session with a therapist.

The first form of music therapy is where you get to create and play music using some provided instruments. These are really basic, like wood blocks and cymbals, so you don’t need any experience or skill in order to play them. The second form is where you sit and listen to music while performing a creative task, like painting, in order to get your feelings out there. It makes you feel good, and lets you work through the issues that you are having.

How Can it Help?

In a nutshell, it teaches you new ways of expression so that you can communicate your feelings in a way that is both clear and healthy. It gives you confidence and a feeling of self-worth because you know that you have better control and a deeper understanding of what is going on in your mind. As a result, your self-esteem is also increased, and you can access emotions as well as past traumas that were previously locked away, or you could not access.

Music therapy can teach you how to regulate your mood, so you are better able to control yourself and learn how to handle any sudden feelings and impulses that arise. As time goes on, you will become better at the process and more able to control them quickly and efficiently. Plus, the music will leave you feeling incredibly peaceful and relaxed, allowing you to experience a truly tranquil environment in which to relieve your thoughts

How Does Mental Health Affect Us?

Mental health affects millions of people around the world, and it is something that we need to learn to become more tolerant of and educate ourselves about. To show you just how much mental health affects us, here are some statistics for the most common mental health issues and the number of people in the USA that suffer from them:

-        Anxiety: 3.1%

-        Depression: 8.3%

-        OCD: 1%

-        PTSD: 3.5%

-        Suicide Attempts: 0.5%

-        Self-harm: 4% (adults) 15% (teens)

How to Start Music Therapy

Starting music therapy is not difficult, and there are two routes you can take to get there. It is possible to get a referral through your doctor, and all you need to do is make an appointment to discuss music therapy and why you feel that you may benefit from it. If you don’t want to go through the referral process, however, there are many centres that will take direct applications.

To Conclude

Music therapy is a fantastic way to get your mind back on track and also try and come to terms with some of the issues that you are facing. It’s a really simple form of therapy, and one that doesn’t put any pressure on you, but it can also have amazing results. If you have found the subject of music and mental health an interesting one, you seriously need to consider reading our detailed and fully referenced article on the subject – you might find yourself pleasantly surprised.

EarthWater Fights: UFC Fighter, Ryan “Baby Face” Benoit

8.png

Ryan “Baby Face” Benoit got his start at Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA) 2009-2013 and has been fighting in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) since 2013.  His next big fight is coming up on Saturday, September 8th 2018 at American Airlines Center for UFC 228 against 32 year old, Roberto Sanchez.  Ryan has been an EarthWater Ambassador for 2 years and has used FulHum to help him stay hydrated throughout his rigorous training regimes and to help him recover afterwards.

“Baby Face” was kind enough to take time between his workouts for a phone interview with EarthWater HQ to answer some questions for us to share with you!

Tell us about your upcoming fight?

It’s September 8th at Dallas American Airlines Center against Roberto Sanchez.  He’s based out of Houston and comes mostly from a jiu-jitsu background which means he’s not a prominent striker, he’s mostly a strangler and takes people down to go for submissions.

How has training been going for you? 

It’s been brutal.  I’ve been out here in New York for a couple weeks now, but it feels like it’s been a month.  It’s been going absolutely great though, because I’m fighting a jiu-jitsu guy who is a talented grappler so I decided to go up to New York to train with the best guys on the planet.  The team I’m working with up here consist of literally the #1, #2, #3 ranked in the world. This gym is mostly known as the most dominant jiu-jitsu gym on the planet.  In fact, there was a feature on Joe Rogan’s podcast recently where he was asked “who do you think is the best grappler on the planet?” and Joe said “It’s gotta be one of John Danaher’s guys, Garry Tonon or Gordon Ryan”.  They call his John’s team the Danaher Death Squad who have been absolutely destroying the competition lately and that’s the team I came to train with and Gary Tonin is the guy that is cornering me and who I’m living with while I’m up here in New York. 

Is there anything new that you have incorporated into your usual schedule?

Yeah, like 3 extra training sessions in a day!  Usually, I only do 1-2 hard work outs when I’m home, but here I’ve been doing 3-4.  Not every session is brutally intense, but I’ll do 2 tough classes one right after the other and then I have a long commute from New York City to New Jersey where I’ll do more strength and conditioning work outs followed by light jiu-jitsu in the night.  I’ve really changed up my routine a whole lot with this camp.

What time does your training day start/end?

So typically, it takes me 2 hours to get to the city every day and my first session starts at 10am and I’ll do two in a row.  Then I’ll take a break and do two in a row at night.  My last session starts at 9pm so it’s a long day of training starting at 10am and ending at 10pm.

I understand that you are having to cut some weight for this fight.  How much are you needing to lose by weigh-ins?

Currently I am sitting at about 139-140 and need to weigh in at 126 so I still have 14 pounds to lose.  On fight week, they weigh you on Tuesday and you officially weigh in on Friday and usually by this time I weigh about 136-137 so looking at losing 10-11 pounds of water weight in 24 hours.

What does that process look like and how do you recover afterwards?

Up until you’re cutting water, it’s all about a clean eating diet and staying hydrated. I get on a nutrition plan that’s high on carbs and proteins leading up to the fight and that’s so you have enough energy to make it throughout the day, you also need to drink at least one gallon of water each day.  Usually on fight week, we cut off most carbs and sodium, however the week before the weight cut I try to sodium load as much I can to retain a lot of water so on fight week it all comes off very quickly, I usually cut about 10 pounds in 1 day.  In the process, I use Sweet sweat which is a cream that helps you sweat, and a plastic suit. Then I start my training routine between getting in the sauna and treadmill then step on the scale and hope you’re at 126 pounds flat. It is the most painful process. 

I have a Nutritionist that gives me a whole plan. We start off with a certain amount of water before I take Pedialyte or start taking any other supplements or nutrients, then we start with our proteins and sugars. After you have your post weigh in meal you start eating at least every hour and try to gain as much weight back as you can.

How much time do you get to recover before you get in the cage?

If you weigh in on Friday morning, you have a window from 8am-10pm for official weigh in and from there you don’t fight until the following night so usually you get a little more than 24-hours to recover.

What is the most difficult part in your preparation?

It’s all difficult and it all sucks.  Finding a balance between training and eating right is really difficult. Being able to stay healthy and not get sick but still be able to push your body. To narrow it down, I would say what sucks the most is the weight cut. You can be planning your whole game plan for weeks and then you get to the weight cut and it’s like nothing else matters. Once you make weigh-in it’s like your first win, you know you’re at least guaranteed your first pay check. After that it’s like switching gears back to fight mode, Weight cut definitely messes with your head the most.

How has EarthWater helped you in your training and in preparing for the big fight?

One big thing I noticed is that when I first came out here it was extremely difficult because I really wasn’t used to training this much and this often.  After doing it for about a week, my body felt terrible because I was feeling overworked, congested and sick after my training sessions my nervous system just felt shot.  Even my team was telling me I was looking sick and wasn’t looking healthy and that I was getting sloppy. After I started drinking EarthWater I started feeling better and wasn’t feeling as sick because my vitamins were absorbing better.  After drinking the water, I think my immune system increased a little bit more.  Training 3-4 times a day really depletes your nutrients and vitamins and I feel a huge difference using the FulHum water to helfp me recover and absorb my nutrients better.

Any parting words for your fans as well as EarthWater’s?

My body. My health.  Stay healthy, stay hydrated and keep training hard!  Make sure you keep your eyes open on September 8th UFC 228 cause I’m coming hard man, and I’m the most prepared I’ve ever been for a fight.  You’re going to see Baby Face 2.0.

Huge thank you to Ryan Benoit and his team for letting us steal him away for a few moments to answer our questions and provide updates on his training and preparation for the big fight.  EarthWater HQ is in the Benoit corner and cannot wait to cheer him on at American Airlines Center, Saturday, September 8th for UFC 228!

EarthWater Weight Loss Challenge: Garett Thomas

6.png

Garett Thomas is EarthWater’s very own Global E-Commerce/Logistics Manager, aka “Mr. Amazon”.  He has been with the company 2 years and has been drinking FulHum ever since.  Garett embarked on his weight loss journey in March of 2018 continuing with a consistent exercise regime and eventually moving to a full ketogenic diet. 

For those of you who are not familiar with this diet, the ketogenic diet (keto) is a low-carb, high-fat diet that can offer many health benefits. Studies have shown that the keto diet can help improve your health and assist in weight loss. Ketogenic diets may even have benefits against diabetes, cancer, epilepsy and Alzheimer's disease (Mawer 2018).

We took some time this week to sit down with Mr. Amazon and ask him a few questions about his current wellness progress and how EarthWater has helped him to stay healthy and hydrated with his diet and fitness routines.

What do you do to stay healthy and fit?

Dieting properly and hitting the gym regularly. Weightlifting and incorporating "super" or "giant" sets is mainly what I stick with in the gym. That kind of weightlifting really keeps your heart-rate elevated while building muscle, endurance and burning fat. I don't find myself in the gym on the weekends normally. Instead I usually I try and go for a hike or maybe kayak on a lake at least once over the weekend. Then I follow a very strict ketogenic diet while implementing intermittent fasting 5 to 6 days a week.

What health benefits have you experienced from the Keto diet?

I definitely have more clarity and better energy levels: no "2:30 Crash" any longer. I don't have food cravings nearly as much, and when bad food gets put in front of me, I know that I am in control and not the food. But probably the most mind-blowing thing I have witnessed with this diet is that my fiancé’s migraines have completely vanished since she has been keto. She was someone who had migraines so bad medication, even prescribed "pill cocktails," would NOT help ease the pain. I mean she couldn't function for days when she got them. One of her migraines even lasted for 2 months. With the keto diet, she rarely gets migraines. She started it around March with me, and I would say she has had 2 very mild migraines that were both treated with over-the-counter migraine medicine. Metaphorically speaking, its night and day for her.

What is the difference between the Keto Diet and Atkins?

Great question that a lot of people ask me. In short, the Atkins diet focuses on phases. Phase 1 is when you eat very little carbs, similar to the keto diet. However, later in the program, they introduce carbs back into your diet. When you start eating a lot of refined carbs and refined sugars (which get turned into carbs) with large amounts of fats, that's when you will harm your body research shows. With the Keto diet, its high amounts of fats, moderate amount of protein, and very little carbohydrates. That stays the same no matter if you are just starting or have been doing the diet for 10 years. In addition, being in ketosis as a result of the keto diet brings a range of benefits to people. Most people seem to have an increase in energy, some have mental clarity and feel much more alert. Then you are also able to control your blood sugar and insulin levels a lot better because you avoid insulin spikes and crashes. 

What is the hardest part of the Keto diet? 
Personally, I think it would have to be the learning curve of the diet. There are so many factors and hurdles that go into reaching a healthy level of "ketosis." Its difficult to switch your body to using fats as a primary energy and fuel source instead of carbohydrates, which is what "ketosis" essentially is. In addition, a lot of people who are new to this diet put too much emphasis on JUST eating low amounts of carbohydrates. While that is equally important, you must eat enough fats throughout your day to achieve the true benefits of this diet. 

Is there a food that you miss the most? 
Honestly, this diet really does well with stopping your cravings. There are also a lot of foods that can be used instead of traditional ingredients that are friendly to my diet. But I would say the biggest thing that I miss though would have to be French Fries, Pizza, and Taco Casa Tacos. But honestly, there is so much good food you get to eat on the keto diet.

What does your current fitness plan look like? 
My weekdays start every day at 4:20 AM. I start with running for 5 minutes - even though I hate running - just to get my heart-rate elevated for the duration of my workout. After cardio, I structure my workouts around "super" and "giant" sets, which means 2 to 3 exercises going into 1 set. Furthermore, all my exercises have a minimum of 3 sets. I usually do 2 upper body days and 2 lower body days. I would say my minimum goal is to be in the gym 4 hours a week and at least 1 hour doing a low impact exercise like hiking, kayaking or even yoga with my fiancé.

How has EarthWater helped you in your wellness journey?

When it comes to the keto diet, there aren't many fruits and veggies you can eat early into the diet. In my previous eating habits, there were a lot of micro nutrients that I would normally get by eating fruit and veggies. With the keto diet, I mainly stick with dark green veggies, cauliflower here and there, and berries. That still is not enough to get all the micro nutrients your body needs. However, with EarthWater I was easily able to consume those micro nutrients, simply by drinking bottled water. There are so many trace minerals in every bottle of EarthWater. In addition, the keto diet requires heavy water intake and EarthWater is excellent at quick and lasting hydration.

What progress have you made up to this point?

My worst weight I recorded was 222 lbs. I started this diet in March and have done it all the way up to this point, but I am down to 187 - which is lower than my college playing weight AND I am so much stronger now. I feel like my goal is 178 lbs., but once I get there it may change. Once I do get to that goal weight, I will probably focus my diet toward gaining muscle mass. As far as progress in the gym, currently I am burning around 650 calories per workout. I would like to get that to 750 calories per workout. 

Who has the best BBQ in Texas?
City Market BBQ in Luling, TX is hands down my favorite. Their all-beef sausage is the best with their mustard based sauce.

I want to thank Garett for taking time out of his busy schedule to answer our questions and for sharing his story with us.  He has been a huge inspiration to all of us here at EarthWater HQ and we hope that he has encouraged you as well!

EarthWater Goes Off-Roading with Josh Herzing at 3P Offroad

Josh Herzing is the owner and operations manager at 3P Offroad and has one of the coolest jobs we have ever heard of… racing super-charged dune buggies.  3P Offroad started in a small garage in Texas centered around a love for the ATV industry and is your one-stop shop for ALL Can-AM & Polaris ATV/ Side-By-Side needs. 

 

EarthWater connected with Josh through a post on social media where he mentioned that FulHum helped him stay hydrated during their recent race in 105-degree heat! Needless to say, we were excited to ask Mr. Herzing some more questions about these crazy awesome machines and how EarthWater has played a role in what they do over at 3P Offroad!

 

What was the race called and where was it?

 

The race is called Vegas to Reno, is an off-road race through Nevada's rough terrain desert.  The start is outside of Las Vegas and it finishes in Reno Nevada.   This is the Longest off-road race in America. 

 

What type of vehicles do you race?

 

We race a Polaris RZR 1000 which is a UTV (utility vehicle or utility task vehicle). Think of a dune buggy on steroids!

7.png

How many racers participated and how did it go?

 

This race had about 350 racers!  Our class (Pro UTV Production) had 40 entries, we had some serious mechanical failures that resulted in us getting a 14th place finish.  

 

Which EarthWater Product did you use?

 

 We used the FulHum concentrate inside of water bottles. 

 

How did EarthWater help you during the race and after?

 

The temperatures in the desert out there were 110 degrees plus and with us being inside the race car for almost 20 hours it is very easy to get dehydrated.   Many teams that were not familiar with EarthWater were using IV's before the race.   The FulHum gave our bodies the hydration and minerals we needed to complete this race safely and efficiently 

 

When is the next one and where can people go to learn more about you?

 

The next race is in Laughlin, Nevada in October, after that we have the legendary Baja 1000 in Ensenada Mexico.  Our company name is 3P Offroad and we are located in Houston, Texas.

The Egg: Still Alive and Kickin’

The Egg: Still Alive and Kickin’

The egg. It is, has been, and most likely will remain a staple food item in all of our lives. Records dating as far back as 1400 B.C. show fowl birds laying eggs for man in Egypt and China. Hens have been domesticated in Europe since 600 B.C. Today, we add it to dishes, baked with it, use it as batter, and throw it at the occasional house. A million questions have been asked about it. Should we eat the yolk? Should we eat the white? Should it be included in the vegetarian diet? Did it come before or after the chicken? More importantly, its nutritional value remains heavily debated over.

A recent, long-term study involving the analysis of almost 500,000 Chinese adults found that increased egg consumption (up to <1 egg/day) can significantly decrease cardiovascular risk (Cardiovascular disease, Ischaemic heart disease, major coronary events, haemorrhagic stroke as well as ischaemic stroke). Specifically, the results showed that daily consumers had an 18% lower risk of cardiovascular disease related death and 28% lower risk of haemorrhagic stroke death compared to non-consumers. Statistical analysis attempts to take into account potential co-factors such as age at recruitment, sex, education level, household income, marital status, alcohol consumption, physical activity, BMI, waist to hip ratio, prevalent hypertension, use of aspirin, family history of cardiovascular disease, intake of multivitamin supplementation and dietary pattern. Excluded from the study were individuals reporting a history of cancer, heart disease or stroke, and diabetes. READ THE FULL REPORT HERE1.

*The egg also contains essential minerals, specifically Phosphorus, Iodine, and Selenium.3

Happy Friday EW Nation. Eat eggs and drink EarthWater.

THE BASICS of Dieting and Exercise

Summer time is BACK AGAIN!! For some, this means family, friends, fun, and pool season. For others, unfortunately, it can mean fat, fat, and fat. We know how much shade tummy tub can throw on your summer plans, so for this week, we’re going to talk about some basics that involves weight-loss. If you are adamant about losing weight, we’ve collected some research that will help you get on your way. As always, we turn to our trusted resource, MERCK MANUALS, to assist us in helping you merc away those unwanted pounds.

beauty8.jpg

Listed below are some notable points we took from an article on weight-loss, written by Dr. Adrienne Youdim, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine; Associate Professor of Medicine, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA; Cedars Sinai Medical Center.

ABOUT DIETING

-          Weight loss ultimately requires consuming fewer calories than the body uses, so therefore it is important to keep in mind that in order to lose weight, you’ll have to eat less and exercise more.

-          As people lose weight, the body starts using energy more efficiently (a mechanism to protect against starvation). This is why weight-loss is always an uphill battle.

-          One pound of body fat stores about 3,500 calories

-          People are usually advised to consume 500 to 1000 fewer calories per day to lose about 1 to 2 pounds per week

-          How much fat and weight are lost, even when the same number of calories is eliminated, varies a great deal from one person to another

-          Most conservative weight loss diets involve consuming at least 1,200 to 1,400 calories a day

-          When rapid weight loss is needed, fewer than 1,200 calories may be consumed, though this should be used only if prescribed and supervised by a doctor

-          Diet should contain enough essential nutrients, including protein, vitamins and minerals!

-          Consuming fewer than 800 calories is NOT RECOMMENDED

-          Weight loss diets should provide about the same volume of food, but less calories (less saturated fat and sugar and more fluids and fibers)

ABOUT EXERCISE

-          Vigorous walking burns about 4 calories per minute. That’s 240 calories in 1 hour.

-          Running can burn twice as many calories (about 6 to 8 calories per minute).

-          When at rest, muscle tissue burns more calories than fat tissue, which is why weight and resistance training is recommended to increase muscle to fat ratio and maintain weight-loss.   

Always remember to consult a doctor before making lifestyle or health related changes, especially if you have medical issues or in an older age group. For the full article, which includes general guidelines as well as analyses on different types of diets, please visit MERCK MANUALS.

National Osteoporosis Month is Here Y’all!

Hey EW Nation! We are about health! So, as part of health, we’d like to make you aware of National Osteoporosis Month. It’s a campaign headed by the National Osteoporosis Foundation intended to educate individuals on the prevention and management of Osteoporosis. Just take a look at their Jumping Jack Challenge Videos! https://www.nof.org/about-us/building-awareness/jumping-jack-challenge/

To help us learn more about Osteoporosis, CONSUMERSAFETY.ORG kindly offered us some information and resources regarding this topic:

About Medication Use

-        “Experts say it is crucial to weigh the benefits of the medicine against the possible negative effect on the bones.”

-        “The US National Library of Medicine reports that many doctors are unaware that commonly prescribed medications contribute to significant bone loss and fractures. This is why it’s important for patients to research their medications.”

-        “Corticosteroids such as prednisone may be used as a therapy to treat rheumatologic inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus. Severe inflammation caused by these conditions can damage critical organs, which is why steroids may be prescribed. Corticosteroids have been shown to cause glaucoma, high blood pressure, and osteoporosis, so it’s essential for doctors to monitor a patient while going through steroid therapy.”

-        “The elderly population has the highest risk for drug-induced osteoporosis. Drug-induced osteoporosis occurs when therapeutic agents increase the risk of significant bone loss and fracture.”

-        “If you’re concerned about a medication casing bone loss, talk to your doctor to find out if there’s an alternative. Never stop taking a medication without speaking to your doctor first.”

About Lifestyle

-        “A poor diet often consists of high fat, salty foods. Sodium causes calcium loss, which weakens bones over time.”

-        Exercise strengthens muscles and improves overall bone health. Experts recommend incorporating weight-bearing and muscle-strengthening exercises into a weekly routine for optimal bone health.”

About Gender and Age

-        “Women are much more likely to develop osteoporosis than men, though men do develop the disease”

-         “Did you know estrogen helps to protect the bones? This hormone decreases sharply when women reach menopause, which may lead to bone loss. This is why the chance of developing osteoporosis increases as a woman ages."

-        “For both men and women, as a result of the aging process, the bone deteriorates in composition, structure, and function, which can predispose people to osteoporosis.”

Achieving Balance: Battling Obesity through Wellness-Focused Habits

Obesity has reached epidemic levels in the United States. It’s a crisis with far-reaching health implications for millions of Americans and translates to massive health care costs for taxpayers. It can be difficult for individuals struggling with a chronic weight problem to shed pounds and maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle. A well-considered combination of exercise, diet and wellness-focused activity can help you achieve the right mindset and empower yourself by emphasizing personal wellness and a spirit of optimism.

Do what works for you

It doesn’t make much sense to commit to a diet-and-exercise routine that you dislike. You’re apt to quit or put insufficient effort into it, which won’t get you any nearer your objective. Look for physical activity that make you feel good such as strength and resistance training, aerobic dance exercise, meditation, yoga or martial arts. Don’t be afraid to try something you haven’t done before, or to pursue an activity that’s always interested you. You might even discover something that could help change your life. Try thinking out of the box and exercise with your dog - hit the trail for a nice, relaxing hike, or go for a job together at the nearest dog park.

Personal well-being

Working toward a healthier you means more than reaching a baseline weight or being able to do a set number of pull-ups. It’s also about personal happiness and feeding your soul with enjoyable activities that make you feel good. Focus on self-care habits such as watching a favorite movie, walking in the woods or taking time out from a busy schedule to read a few chapters of that novel you’ve always meant to finish. Doing things you enjoy lowers the blood pressure, reduces stress and activates “feel-good” chemicals in the brain including serotonin, melatonin and dopamine.

Get your sleep

People who struggle to lose weight often are unaware that shorting yourself on sleep makes it more difficult to shed pounds. You need a healthy metabolism to burn those calories, and your metabolism suffers when you’re not getting enough sleep. According to an article in Shape Magazine, sleep is the most important thing you can do to lose weight because, among other things, there’s a direct connection between weight gain and a lack of sleep.  

Eat right

You can exercise six times a day, but it won’t do much good if you fail to couple it with a healthy diet. Losing weight doesn’t mean starving yourself, followed by a period of binge eating. Instead, seek balance with vegetables and fruit, whole grain breads, low-fat dairy, protein, healthy meat and nuts. If you’re still having a hard time losing weight, consult your doctor or a nutritionist, who can lay out a complete and wholesome diet that complements your exercise routine.

Tracking your progress

Using a bathroom scale to track your progress can be a discouraging and fruitless endeavor. Instead, try other methods, such as increased breathing capacity, sleeping more soundly, more energy and compliments from people who are close to you are far more gratifying indications that you’re making real progress. Instead of feeling listless in the afternoon after lunch, you’ll have the energy you need to get through the rest of the work day productively. Reduced stress and greater mobility are also good indicators that you’ve lost weight and achieved a healthier overall condition.

Crash diets, weight loss pills and fad exercise regimens hold little hope for people who struggle with obesity and seek a sustainable healthy weight and lifestyle. Track your progress through changes in your physical appearance and energy level.

Underneath the Skin’s Surface

As an official sponsor to the Miss Earth United States pageant this year, one cannot go without thinking about beauty. And when one thinks about beauty, one cannot go without thinking about skincare. As with beauty, skincare starts from the inside out.

There is surmounting evidence to suggest that how your skin naturally looks and feels on the outside is a manifestation of what is going on internally. Your skin is the largest organ in the body. So just as with any other organ, like your heart or liver, what you eat and how well you’re able to maintain it, will ultimately affect the condition of those organs. Terms such as ‘Holistic Skincare’, ‘Ingestible Skin Products’, ‘Body Skincare’ too, are becoming increasingly popular.

Therefore, this week, we are talking about how and which minerals may be beneficial for the health of your skin.

Selenium has shown to play a key role in skin care prevention both topically and when ingested regularly.

Copper has shown to help maintain and even improve skin elasticity and thickness.

Zinc is sometimes used to tame oil production and therefore control the development of acne. In fact, acne itself may be a symptom of zinc deficiency.

#FUNFact: Our Humic/Fulvic Complex Contains Traces of All These Minerals.

Don’t miss out on the crowning of a new Miss Virginia Earth United States THIS WEEKEND, April 21-22, at the Crystal City Marriott at Reagan National Airport in Crystal City, VA!
