Takara spent the first 30 years of her life fighting a debilitating illness which left her immune system dysfunctional, the need to sleep for up to 16 hours a day, catching and not being able to rid herself of every illness that came along, and having a hard time concentrating. She was introduced to Sunrider Foods in 1989 and the shift in her health was nothing short of miraculous. Prior to this, she had tried everything imaginable to regain her health. Within a few weeks of eating these foods, she was no longer requiring prescription medication just to get through the day. After a couple of years of eating these foods, she was in-line skating competitively, hiking in the desert in the middle of the summer, exhibiting incredible stamina, and having few colds or illnesses.
Realizing the incredible impact our lifestyle and emotional state have on our well-being, she began to study nutrition, the principles of Chinese medicine, the Tao, and emotional healing.
She still eats Sunrider whole foods concentrates daily. She is delighted to offer these wonderful foods to you.
Sunrider is a philosophy: “Feed the body the proper nutrition and the body can heal itself.” There are three main products by Sunrider that are basic to optimum nutrition: NuPlus (for nourishment), Quinary (for balancing the main body systems), and Calli or Fortune Delight (for cleansing the system).
Nourishment – the body uses energy for several functions: to pump the heart, to walk around, to heal, to breathe, etc. Because of the poor quality of the soil in which our foods are grown, the pesticides and artificial ingredients that block our ability to absorb nutrients, and the processing that kills the nutritional value, the foods we ingest typically provide us with very little other more than bulk. High energy fuel is required to sustain optimum health. In the chain of command, first the body provides energy to keep the vital systems going (like the heart). Next, it provides energy to walk, play ball, make love, etc. The final thing it has energy for is healing. Almost no-one has enough energy in their system for healing to take place. NuPlus is the cellular energy food and provides the nutrition the body needs to perform all its functions. NuPlus comes in a powder that is mixed in the beverage of your choice.
Balance – there are many systems in the body. They each must be in balance and communicate with all the others. It takes many nutrients (the Chinese believe you should eat 100 different foods each day) to ensure that each system receives the nutrition it requires to operate at its fullest potential. Few people have balanced systems. More often, one or more systems are weak, be it immune, respiratory, circulatory, endocrine, digestive, electrical, or whatever. Unfortunately, if one system is weak, it taxes all the others. Quinary is designed to feed the main systems of the body with balanced nutrition. Quinary comes in power that is mixed in the beverage of your choice. It also comes in capsules and liquid. She often recommends that people start with the capsule.
Cleansing – you can eat the greatest food in the world and if your colon and eliminative organs are not clear, you absorb almost none of it. Calli and Fortune Delight are beverage which feed the eliminative organs of the body. They are not laxatives or forceful in any way. They just provide those systems with the nutrition they require to perform their function properly. Either beverage can be drunk hot or cold.
Sunectar is often added to sweeten the beverages. It is a highly concentrated dark form of stevia. Stevia has been shown to be antimicrobial, helps to regulate blood sugar and blood pressure, and has been used successfully to treat Lyme disease. Unlike so many other brands on the market, Sunrider’s Sunectar is pure and the process used to create it doesn’t remove the important components.
There are numerous other products in the Sunrider line. However, all of them are add- ons to these fundamental products. The three main products are available, along with several free extras, in what is called a Sunpack.
