Osteoporosis? Bone Health? Stress Fractures? Check out this post!

How is your bone health?
Our bones are responsible for many of our body’s crucial functions, including movement, organ protection, production of blood cells, storage of minerals, and support for the rest of our body.

Did you know...

•  Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body
•  Collagen fibers give the bones strength, and absorb and utilize energy 
•  Minerals make up 70% of bone matrix and collagen makes up 30%.
•  Its the collagen that gives the bones flexibility, and viability
•  The missing link in bone density is collagen
•  Without collagen, the bone cannot endure stress
•  A deficiency in collagen will affect the mechananical properties of bones 
•  Collagen deficiency drastically increases the risk of fracture
Did you Know...

Another very important task of collagen in the bone matrix is to serve as the proper framework necessary for the body to be able to hold the essential minerals like calcium, silicon, manganese, boron,  to bind - ie to HOLD the calcium in the bones!


Each collagen fiber acts as a calcium binding site, this means the more collagen you have in the bone, the more places there will be for calcium to be incorporated! 

Heard of Bone Metabolism? You need old bone removed/re-sorption and bone formation are critical to control the healing and remodeling of bone! Collagen is critical in this process of having healthy bones!! #osteoblasts #osteoclasts 

What depletes the collagen in our bones? Age (late 20's onwards), menopause, especially the loss of estrogen, cause bone loss to propel at a very fast rate! 
Calcium alone isn't enough... calcium supplements might make our bones stiffer, but we also need bone flexibility ! Science shows that  bone density  from prescribed calcium supplements alone can eventually create vulnerable, brittle bones. Why is this? Well,  calcium supplements on their own allow only an increase of osteoblast   activity, but reduces osteoclast activity. It is key to understand that Osteoblasts and osteoclasts  are types of cells the human body uses to repair broken bones.  Osteoclasts  break down old bone tissue allowing  osteoblasts  to replace it with new material. Together, these cells facilitate bone mending and bone growth. Thus, there needs to be a balance of minerals both in and out , as this is dependant for the framework of the collagen matrix, which is the definition of both the minerals and the collagen fibers for the minerals to attach to. Thus, having good collagen levels in our bones is what allows us to bend and twist without breaking.  

Therefore you see, the missing link is COLLAGEN not CALCIUM, as without adequate collagen the bone can not endure stress!
To think on:
If you are lacking collagen => less bone roughness => less surface area for minerals like calcium to bind to => higher fracture risk!
Are you suffering from...

Stress fractures? Gum disease or periodontal disease? Leg cramps at night? Poor nail growth or brittle nails? Low back pain? Less skin elasticity and firmness?

These are ALL indicators of collagen deficiency

Are you wondering if just weight lifting is enough? If you are wanting to build strong, dynamic bones, you need more collagen so your bones have the right collagen matrix! Curious about the best type of exercise to help you get healthy and strong bones - Check out this great website for more info!

Are you or do you know anyone who is pregnant?

Visi's Probita are little portable protein snacks that have 20 essential amino acids our bodies need for functioning & development! 

👩🏻   Here's a powerful testimony... A young Australian mom,Kristy Lea, was diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes at 29 weeks. She met with me & started taking 2 Probita chews/day & within two days was balancing her blood sugars between 4-5 & didn't need to go on insulin for the rest of her pregnancy! (Unlike the other 9 mums in her Gest Diab group that did) 🙌🏻She was so excited! 👶🏼Beautiful healthy, chubby baby boy, and healthy momma for the win! 😍 Love Visi! (And yes ~ it comes in chocolate!)

Vísi   products are inspired by the Scandinavian way of life.

Their rich history is reflected in the beautiful arctic cloudberry featured in many of our products. Long-prized for its antioxidant properties, the arctic cloudberry only grows wild around the Artic Circle under the intense rays of the midnight sun. Now through   Vísi , the arctic cloudberry can support you wherever in the world you call home.

We amplified the Arctic Cloudberry’s phytonutrients with Hydrolyzed collagen   protein to create our proprietary AC2 Technology. Hydrolyzed collagen protein is identical to the only natural protein found in the human body. Hydrolyzed collagen protein is the highest absorbing protein with a 95% absorption rate, (which is significantly higher than the 53% absorption rate of whey protein, the 26% of soy protein, and the 16% of pea protein.*)

From this innovative blend, we’ve expanded our product line with a variety of products to meet your daily needs. Whether you’re drawn to Probíta’s easy on-the-go protein chews, Nufinna's nutrition packed smoothie or Vara's Immune System support, we’re sure you’ll find what you need to be a little better every day.

😄   Start your journey to a better life now—message us or the person who introduced you to Visi today!

*Protein absorption percentage is based on 15g of protein/hr.

Setria® Glutathione is a tripeptide consisting of three amino acids: glutamate, cysteine, and glycine. It is found to varying degrees in all cells, tissues, body fluids, and organ systems.

Glutathione is recognized as the great protector. Without glutathione, each cell would become so ravaged by free radicals that it would disintegrate. A lack of glutathione would also negatively affect the liver and immune system. By fighting free radicals, glutathione supports the liver so it can carry out its job of detoxifying the body. Likewise, preventing free radical damage also helps promote a healthy immune system.

Our bodies obtain glutathione in two ways: from the foods we eat and from our own internal production. Because of the body's ability to make glutathione, it is not considered an "essential" nutrient. Under some conditions, though, the body's need for glutathione is outpaced by its ability to produce it.

Why Setria Glutathione is different?

Setria® Glutathione is L-Glutathione or Reduced Glutathione and is superior to other glutathione based on the following features:

  • Clinically studied  to increase blood glutathione levels and support the immune system
  • A pure and safe material with an assay value of 99.0% – 101.0%
  • Produced by a patented, fermentation process
  • Contains no additives, artificial flavors or preservatives
  • Has no animal origin material (vegetarian)
  • Meets specification for the new USP monograph (USP)
  • Meets specification for The Japanese Pharmacopoeia (JP)
  • No TSE/BSE risk
  • GMP-compliant manufacturing
  • Allergen-free
  • Kosher

The World we live in is TOXIC. This really isn't news to most of us now is it...but do we realize just how toxic it is? Have a listen to Dr Charlie Rouse, a certified Doctor of Naturopathy and Registered Pharmacist as he speaks about the world around us and how it is weakening our defenses againts the onslaught of chemicals, synthetic hormones, preservatives, artificial flavourings, smoking (& 2nd hand smoke!), pesticides, herbicides, environmental pollutants, free radicals,etc!  
20 square feet of the body's largest organ is the SKIN! The skin is very effective and acts like armour if the collagen is intact and healthy at keeping foreign invaders into our body!
So the condition of our skin lets us know how much collagen our body has, so if our skin is sickly, weak, thin, then the collagen inside us will definitely be lacking!

We get asked...Is Visi Expensive?? Here you go!

Visi Nufinna Lifestyle Meal Replacement or Meal Supplement! Eat better, and spend less at the grocery store!

When you use Nufinna (protein collagen smoothie) you are getting the nutrition of eating 6 fruits, 6 green vegetables and the most absorbable protein on the market. (90 calories) Helps keep you full for hours. Comes to you vanilla and you can mix it with your favorite fruit, chocolate or peanut butter. Add coconut, almond or regular milk and ice.

Hydrolyzed Collagen Protein (AC2 Technology)—Vísi’s hydrolyzed collagen protein is the most absorbable and easiest to digest of any protein. Nufínna’s collagen is hydrolyzed via a patented process that uses natural fruit enzymes—rather than unnatural acid hydrolysis like many protein products use—to extract collagen protein without using heat, synthetic chemicals, or acids, just like nature intended. This guarantees the integrity of the finished molecules through a six-hour filtration, sterilization, and drying process. The care taken ensures the finest quality protein on the market, with a 95% absorption rate that the body can utilize better than any other protein source available. COST?? Nufinna is less than $4AUD a meal 😋🍏 🍊 🍓

NOTE: This smoothie is brilliant nutrition for your children with 'selective pallets' (like mine)! Safe for ALL ages!!

SCIENCE LINK: Here is a call with Dr Charlie Rouse (Naturopath & Pharmacist on our medical advisory board) talking all about the Greens in Nufinna!!…
