Why You Shouldn't Live Without This One Thing

You keep telling yourself that you are going to get your daily fruits and veggies; that you’re going to put down those crunchy, oily french fries and pick up that healthy apple, spinach, or kale.

“I’ll start on Monday”, you say. “A fresh start is just what I need.” 

But Monday never comes, and you keep procrastinating.

Unfortunately, your health can’t wait. Your risk for long-term health problems, mood disorders, and poor physical and mental well-being increase substantially when you don’t get your diet right. 

You know all this. But goodness! It's hard to eat healthy, right? If it were easy, everyone would be doing it. 

Ruvi makes it easy. Pour, mix, drink. That’s it. Four servings of fruits and veggies in just a few minutes. 

 

Experiencing the Afternoon Crash

It’s 2:30 in the afternoon. A couple of hours ago, you chowed down on a sub sandwich with turkey, lettuce, and cheese.

“I ate pretty dang healthy today”, you tell yourself.

But, unfortunately, the contents of that sub sandwich didn’t do you any favors. 

The cheese was highly processed. It contained artificial colors and preservatives. It was also pasteurized and homogenized, which killed off its enzymes and probiotics and denatured much of its protein and fats.

As for the meat, it wasn’t exactly from pastured turkeys. 

We won’t even talk about the gluten-rich, hybridized wheat bread or the nutrient-deficient iceberg lettuce. 

Come 2:30 pm, you’re crashing. Your body is lacking much needed vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. 

You should’ve had a Ruvi with your lunch. It could have made up for what lacked in that sub sandwich. 

 

Lacking Focus & Motivation

You eat breakfast cereal every morning. Afterall, it does say it has 13 essential vitamins and minerals. 

That’s got to be healthy, right? 

Unfortunately, those vitamins and minerals are synthetic. They were sprayed on after the breakfast cereal was cooked at very hot temperatures and highly processed, making the cereal useless for your body, and even toxic. 

You find you lack motivation and focus throughout the day. You have deadlines to meet at work, personal goals and commitments, and friends who want you to come out for the night. 

If only you had the motivation to do it all. 

Drinking a Ruvi can get your brain started right every single day. Ruvi gives you the high-quality, raw nutrients you need to keep your motivation and focus rolling for hours. 

It’s time to get that report submitted to your boss. Drink a RuviI every day and get going.

 

Eating Processed Junk for Snacks

According to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the average American consumes a diet that consists of 60% processed foods. 

That’s a lot of junk. 

Unfortunately, this high consumption of processed foods is clearly associated with many chronic health problems, low mood, brain fog, fatigue, and mood disorders. 

You don’t want all that. You want the good stuff. Ruvi gives you that boost of raw, powerful nutrients every day, filling you with energy, focus, and vibrance. 

 

Finding it Hard to Wake Up in the Morning

It typically takes you about 20-30 minutes to fall asleep at night. Sometimes even an hour. You lay there, totally awake, frustrated that sleeping isn’t easier.

The next morning, you wake up drowsy and foggy. Getting out of bed is quite the ordeal. Your motivation to ‘pop out of bed’ just isn’t there. 

You press the snooze button 3 or 4 times every morning. But as this is your norm, you’ve come to accept it’s just the way things are. 

Little do you know, this can be changed! Your diet has everything to do with how easily you fall asleep and how much motivation and clarity you feel when you wake up in the morning. 

Drink a Ruvi in the evening, and say hello to an easier time falling asleep and a boost of energy and clarity in the morning. 

Say goodbye to drowsy you, and say hello to your new declaration as a “morning person.”

 

Gaining Artificial Fitness vs. Real Fitness

Do the materials a house is built from have anything to do with its quality? 

“Well of course they do”, you might say. 

You’d never move into a house with a plastic foundation rather than a concrete one, right? So don’t build your body’s foundation on processed garbage. 

If you want to be fit - and we mean really fit - you’ll need the right vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Ruvi can help you build a body founded on the good stuff.

 

Can’t Lose that Stubborn Belly Fat

You keep hearing the phrase “calories in, calories out.” You eat a low calorie diet and workout 1 hour, 5 days a week. 

Despite all your best efforts, you just can’t seem to get that extra 15 pounds off. 

What most don’t know is that your metabolism has a ton to do with your gut health. You need to build up good gut flora if you want to lose weight. 

What’s one of the best ways to do this? You guessed it - all those healthy fruits and veggies. 

You want the highest quality fruits and vegetables you can find. Ruvi comes from clean sources - family-owned farms we partner with that use only the best practices. The produce in Ruvi is non-GMO and always picked at peak ripeness. It is flash frozen within a few hours of being picked, and then freeze dried within only a few days to lock in all of those good nutrients. 

Feed that good gut flora and lose that pesky belly fat. 

Drink a Ruvi a day. Get a leg up, and then hit those ever-elusive fitness goals.
 

Buying “Fresh” Fruits & Veggies that Lack Nutrition

Most fruits and veggies you find in the grocery store are picked well before they are ripe. This causes them to lack the full amount of vitamins and minerals they would otherwise have. These fruits and veggies also don’t have the chance to develop many of the vital phytonutrients that come during the final stages of ripening.

Bummer. 

Not only that, did you know it takes weeks or even months for fruits and veggies to get to you after they are picked? 

Produce is kept in cold storage for weeks, and then chemically ripened. Many are even irradiated to preserve them. Then, they are shipped to the grocery store. 

But don’t get us wrong. Fruits and veggies rule! They are awesome for the body and brain and certainly worthy of eating. It’s just tough they aren’t the freshly picked, close-to-nature creations they once used to be. 

 

One Simple Solution

According to a study done by the University of California, vegetables can lose 15 to 55% of their vitamin C within a week of being picked. Some spinach loses 90% within 1 day after it is harvested. It is estimated that produce loses an average of 30 percent of its nutrients within 3 days of being picked. 

At Ruvi, we source our fruits and veggies from family-owned farms. We make sure that our produce is grown with the best practices. Our fruits and veggies are never GMO, and they are always picked at peak ripeness, ensuring you get all of the vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients that you should from your fruits and veggies. 

Since our fruits and veggies are freeze-dried, that also means that the nutrients are locked in. Our fruits and veggies don’t lose nutritional content like the fresh stuff. They stay healthy and filled with all the good vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients for years.
