5 Simple Healthy Habits to Start Now

1.Eat at least one raw fruit or veggie at every meal  Most fruits and veggies will provide you with more nutrients before they are cooked. Try adding a few apple slices to your lunch for extra fiber and to boost metabolism. Then add in some fresh carrot sticks to your dinner for potassium and antioxidants. Whole foods provide your body with the sustainable energy it needs from food, while processed snacks cause spikes and drops in energy. Every product at XR is made with whole-food sources with absolutely no chemically created synthetic sources like many typical supplements on the market.  2. Carry a water bottle with you  Staying hydrated will make a huge difference for your health. An easy way to get enough water is to carry a water bottle with you. Women should drink about 11.5 cups, or 2.7 liters a day and men should drink about 15.5 cups or 3.7 liters…

We will always encourage everyone to eat healthy delicious foods that promote energy and health! But what do you do when your diet needs an extra boost? Our products are made with real, high quality, plant-based ingredients that provide an effective delivery system to bridge any gaps in your nutrition.  A 2012 study found that men who took a daily multivitamin for several years had a lower risk or cancer and cataracts than those who did not.

Healthy Hair and How to Get There

Let’s talk hair. Sometimes it seems to style perfectly, but other times it proves to have its own agenda. Why? There is more to hair health than perfecting that Pinterest tutorial. Hair health starts with nutrition and is supported by proper care and maintenance.  Where to start?!  Protein. Zinc. Omega 3 Fatty acids. These nutrients will boost hair health! Hair is mostly protein and needs you to make sure it gets the replenishment it needs.  Zinc keeps hair strong and healthy so less will fall out. A good amount of protein and zinc can be found in XR Nutrition’s Protein + Superfood. Hair health starts at the roots and omega-3 fatty acids will boost root health. Our Multi-Daily vitamin includes enzymes that help digest and maximize the benefits of other important nutrients you are eating.  How to care for your hair? Make sure the products you put in your hair…

It was an interesting place with lots of types of people. Looking back, I’d say I didn’t really fit in to any one type. At a super young age I was involved with athletics. I literally took gymnastics classes starting at two years old. I stuck with it for a while and began to do it competitively around age six. I’ll be honest here and tell you I peaked at gymnastics when I was seven or eight and I won the gold medal for the Parallel Bars at the Florida State Championships. It’s probably not as impressive as it sounds. Wanting to have a more normal life and go to public school, I retired from my gymnastics career at age 12. Starting school in 7 th grade,…
