How Do They Get Distributors and Customers?

You can learn how to market the products through Ultra International training or do your own thing by talking to your friends, family and co-workers.

They also apparently promote Home Party Meetings as a fun way to get information on their products.

My Review

In review of everything that Ultra International has to offer, they do appear to be a good company. Due to fact that you can start an online eStore in minutes for free, makes it very appealing to broke people who want to start a business. You will have a presence on the internet, but if you don’t drive traffic to your site, nobody will be stopping by and you will not make any money.

To become successful and continually grow this business you will need to recruit others and sell products and teach your group to do the same. If that is what you are looking for the Ultra International opportunity might be a good fit for you.

However, the reason 95% of network marketers fail is because you have untrained people teaching untrained people. Without the proper training and mentoring most people will fail, so if you want to join Ultra International and be in the top 5% you must participate in either their training or another leadership development program.

If you are not willing to participate in a leadership development program, I would suggest looking for an internet based product and company to learn the skills to make money online as an alternative.

Ultra Refined Fish Oil Is Best

Yes, if there is one tip to follow when choosing fish oil supplements, it is: ultra refined fish oil is best to go for. But what does “ultra refined” really mean and how does an “ultra refined” fish oil differ from the regular omega-3 supplement out there in the market today?

Simply put, although regular supplements like this are also refined, it is refined with the most advanced and most sophisticated technology in filtering and refining. With this advanced technology, it gives the most concentrated, purest, contaminant-free form of it ever possible. Ultra refining brings with it processes like molecular distillation which is a powerful purification method that removes contaminants efficiently.

Why is ultra refining necessary?

Remember that when this oil is extracted from fish, along with the omega-3 fatty acids are other free fatty acids and even toxins that might have been present in the fish.

Huh?! Toxins?!

You may already know by now how fish, depending on where they are sourced from, can be laden with toxins including mercury, PCBs and lead, among others. Although it might be unavoidable, it should be kept at doses not harmful to your health. For instance, eating two to three doses of fish per week subjects you to minute amounts of contaminants, but as long as the doses are regulated, the body can handle the toxins. However, it is different when talking about this supplements. Remember that this supplements are concentrated and have to be taken regularly. Unsafe levels of PCBs, mercury and other toxins present in this supplement can be detrimental to your health.

For you to enjoy all the health benefits of it, make sure you take only this kind supplements. It that have not been subjected to sophisticated processes may not only be harmful but are lower grade, easier to break apart, and thus, not as effective in providing the promised health benefits.

This brings us to the issue of potency. It is best because it is most potent. The methods used for producing ultra-refined type of fish oil allows the extraction of higher concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA, which are responsible to the health benefits fish oil brings. Although standard it work, you will have to consume more in order to get the same amount of these essential fatty acids. If you want number, it contains at least 70% more omega-3 fatty acids than regular fish oil supplements.

What do all these mean?

Simple – when choosing this oil, make sure you opt only for this product. As far as potency, safety and effectiveness are concerned, this is best.

Ultra Pure Fish Oil – Does it Provide More Health Benefits Than Ordinary Oil?

Ultra pure fish oil will be free of mercury, dioxins and PCBs. High levels of oxidation, which indicate that the oils were allowed to spoil before being encapsulated, will not be present, because that increases your intake of free radicals. A cause of cellular aging, that’s not something that we want more of in our bodies.

But, how can you be certain about the purity of a supplement?

The better manufacturers are able to prove purity with an independent certificate of analysis or COA. The internet makes it easy for consumers to compare the quality of everything that they buy. Most supplement manufacturers realize the value of a good website. On it, they include valuable information that is easy to verify.

A COA is one of the things that they can and should include on their websites. It will list mercury, dioxins, PCBs and oxidation levels. If it is ultra pure fish oil, none of the contaminants will be detected. The level of oxidation will be lower than 17 and the anisidine value will be below 12. Not all manufacturers list both, but the best ones do.

A COA will provide other important information, as well. The omega-3 content will be listed.
Most of the fish oil capsules on the market contain 1000mg or 1 gram of fat. Of that fat, part of it is omega-3 fat, part is omega-6 fat and part is omega-9 fat. The largest part should be omega-3s, but that is not always the case. In the better brands, at least 500mg is omega-3 fat.

The COA will also list the content of a specific omega-3 called DHA or Docosahexaenoic acid, which of all the omega-3s, appears to be the most important to human health. A gram of ultra pure fish oil should provide a minimum of 280mg of DHA, because:

• Low blood levels are associated with depression

• Supplementation reduces blood triglycerides and increases levels of “good” HDL cholesterol

• The brain and eyes contain a great deal of it

• The only dietary sources are fatty fish and marine algae (which people don’t eat), so most of us don’t get enough of it

The COA will also list the content of EPA or Eicosapentaenoic acid, which has been the subject of more studies than DHA. A gram of ultra pure fish oil should provide a minimum of 120mg, because:

• Low blood levels are associated with suicidal behavior and schizophrenia

• Supplementation reduces the risk of heart attack, stroke, diabetic neuropathy and varicose veins by improving circulation and reducing the risk of blood clots

• The only dietary sources are fatty fish and marine algae

So, a COA allows you to be certain about the purity of a supplement, as well as the nutritional value.

If you choose a good supplement, there are benefits to the heart, brain, joints, skin, eyes and every cell of the body.

Ultra pure fish oil might even reduce your risk of certain types of cancer. Buy some, today.

Health and Fitness Tips- 25 ways to get fitter and feel better

1. Lift weights twice a week to increase your muscle mass. This muscle will burn more calories even when you are not exercising. Go to the gym, buy some weights for home, go for a walk with a bottle of water in your ruck sack or go to a weighted workout.

2. Take care of your heart and lungs by staying active for at least 30 minutes each day. This can be split into more than one session, so could mean 2 x 15 minute walks.

3. Eat small amounts of GOOD fats: avocado, oily fish, olive/flax oil, nuts and seeds, these will take care of your cardiovascular system (heart, arteries and veins). Eat less BAD fats: Fried food, meat, cakes, chocolate, crisps, biscuits, butter, these will harm your cardiovascular system, and make you fat. Remove ALL hydrogenated fats from your diet, they are very bad for you and hide in many ready made biscuits, cakes, crisps, puddings, sweets, chocolates. These fats are extremely harmful to your health. Avoiding them will help you avoid foods which are high in fat, sugar and salt and low in nutrients. Check labels.

4. Protein will make you feel full, and will help repair muscle after exercise. Try sourcing protein from skinless chicken, tofu, pulses (beans and peas) and oily fish such as salmon, fresh tuna and mackerel; these also contain other beneficial ingredients and are low in bad saturated fats.

5. Make sure you eat your carbohydrates, they help you to exercise and burn fat, but eat SLOW BURN carbohydrates such as oats (porridge), brown bread instead of white, brown rice, honey instead of sugar, brown pasta, lentils, vegetables, pulses. If you want to loose body fat, then replace half your carbohydrates with steamed vegetables, at your evening meal.

6. Drink more water, often the body sends the same signal for thirst as for hunger. Drink water first thing in the morning and all through the day, especially during and after exercising. Cut down on tea and coffee, avoid fizzy drinks.

7. Eat a piece of fruit and drink water instead of drinking fruit juice which is high in calories, and difficult to digest.

8. Watch out for sports drinks. Unless you are training very hard, a bottle of sports drink may replace all of the calories you have just burned in your activity. Bring a bottle of water instead.

9. Keep an eye on your drinking! Alcohol and mixers are high in calories.

10. Do not get hungry; this will lead to you eating the wrong things. Carry healthy snacks wherever you go; bananas, apples, rice cakes, dried fruit and nuts (go easy on them though). Hunger can be triggered by boredom or lack of stimulation. Go for a walk or wander round the garden, or do the vacuuming. Eat 5 small meals a day rather than 3 big ones.

11. Look at your portion sizes; in general they are larger than they need to be. If a smaller portion will leave you feeling hungry, add a huge spoon of steamed broccoli, cauliflower or other vegetables.

12. Eat your breakfast. In tests people who eat breakfast loose more weight than those who do not. You cannot exercise efficiently and achieve your potential without eating properly.

13. Do not go shopping when you are hungry. When you go, write a list and stick to it, don’t be tempted by special offers on foods that you know are bad for you.

14. Look at the ingredients on everything that you buy. Look at the total amount of fat and what kind of fat- avoid saturated fats and hydrogenated fats as they are linked with developing heart disease. Look at the amount of calories and the amount of salt that you will be eating.

In general the more ingredients on a label, the less goodness is in the food. If you have time to prepare some meals with fresh ingredients you will improve your health, and probably cut down on fat, as most prepared food is high in fats and salt.

15. Beware of reduced fat labels- it only means that there is less fat than in the original thing. (For example reduced fat mayonnaise is still 50g fat per 100g- very high in fat). These foods are still often high in sugars, fat and calories and you may eat more of them because they appear to be healthy. Don’t buy reduced fat biscuits and cakes, just eat something healthier and get used to the fact that life is OK without those things.

16. Don’t fill the house with crisps, biscuits and sweets for the kids, it is no good for them and will encourage you to snack on them too. Try and move the whole family into healthier eating, this will help prevent obesity, heart disease and diabetes in your kids when they are your age, gift them with a long, quality life.

17. Stock up on healthy foods. Write a list of delicious healthy things that you may have forgotten you love, and make sure your cupboards are full of them; cherry tomatoes, baked beans on wholemeal bread, kiwis, mangoes, ryvita and marmite……

18. Make your lunch and take it to work. Buy whole grain rolls and tins of salmon and tuna- it only takes a few minutes to make a sandwich and pick up some fruit. Even a shop sandwich will be full of fat, and low in nutrients. Hold the mayo on the tuna!

19. Watch less TV: it will give you less chance to nibble, more time to exercise or organise yourself for the next day. Organization may be the key to making your lifestyle healthier.

20. Motivate yourself to change your lifestyle and that of your family. Set an example to the kids, that mum and dad are fit and active and healthy. Take them on walks, cycling, walk to the shops, and go swimming. Take them to a local fitness centre for football, dance or basketball. Our children need our help if they are to avoid the growing epidemic of obesity, heart disease and diabetes, as well as other lifestyle-related illness. Change their eating habits; you will only do them good. LEAD BY EXAMPLE.

21. Buy yourself an exercise video to do at home instead of watching TV. Choose yoga or Pilates, aerobics or stability ball. There is a huge range on offer, talk to me for help. Buy yourself a healthy lifestyle magazine for motivation, recipes and exercises to do at home. Four good ones are Zest, Men’s Health, Ultra Fit, and Health and Fitness. Buy yourself a healthy eating or low fat cookbook for ideas.

22. Remember to have some treats and some fun, life is for living, being healthy should be enjoyable too, not a chore.

23. Slow down, stop rushing around, become more organised and make time to enjoy cooking, exercising and life in general.

24. Take some time to relax and unwind. You need to lower stress levels to stay healthy, exercise, Yoga and Pilates can help you do this, and so can a warm bath by candlelight.

25. Make exercise and healthy eating a normal and enjoyable part of every day of your life. You will live longer, protect your children’s health and be a happier, healthier person.

I hope that this gives you some motivation to change your life in small ways and reap large benefits. Until next time,
Vikki.
