The Potential of Produce: FreshOne, LLC Fresh Produce Sales Increase Across the Board

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) June 12, 2015

As physical fitness, wellness and nutrition grow increasingly popular among all ages across the nation, the demand for healthy fresh foods has sky rocketed. This consumer demand has caused fresh fruits and vegetables to morph into the perfect grab and grow snack. Recent industry research shows significant increase in sales for these health-filled snacks and it forecasts this growth well into the future.

Whereas in the past, whole fruit and fresh cut fruit have been the focus of this segment, fresh vegetables have recently stepped into the spotlight. People are looking more toward fresh fruits and vegetables than ever before.

Consumers are eating a wider variety of fresh fruits and vegetables and less canned or frozen options. One of the major factors in decision-making is whether or not the produce is grown locally.

FreshOne, a nationwide provider of ready-to-eat fresh food programs for major retailers, has embraced this trend and continues to grow their reach in the fresh food industry through innovative solutions.

Fresh cut fruit and vegetables appeal to the market segments virtually every retailer is trying to attract: Millennials and Soccer Moms says Red Boswell, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at FreshOne. The bonus that whole and cut fruit gives the retailers is that everyone else likes it too!

Six Pac OTG Bars Now Available on the American Market

Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) April 10, 2015

Six Pac OTG, a company that produces a line of nutritional bars for people who care about eating healthy while on the go, announced that its products are now available on the American market at online and traditional retailers.

Six Pacs bars are designed to give people a healthy eating option without having to sacrifice great taste, like so many other bars on the marketplace do. People who are fitness- and health-oriented who constantly find themselves on the go can benefit greatly from carrying these bars with them to give them a nutritious snack when food options are otherwise limited.

Ive lived a lifestyle where I was constantly on the run for business, and its so easy when youre living that life to stop at the drive through to satisfy your cravings, said Ron Dichter, owner and founder of Six Pac OTG. These bars give people a quick and easy way to tide themselves over while still being able to maintain their focus on living a healthy lifestyle.

The Six Pac bars are composed almost entirely of organic ingredients like nuts and fruits. Many similar nutritional bars use synthetic ingredients and artificial sweeteners preservatives that give them a somewhat chemical taste, whereas only three of Six Pacs bars use any form of sweetener, and one that is completely natural.

Despite the lack of preservatives in Six Pac bars, they still have a six month shelf life because of the unique packaging they contain. Every bar is wrapped in foil that is three times the standard industry thickness, as well as a plastic shrink wrap to preserve freshness. These bars do not get dry or flaky they maintain their texture and their nutritional qualities for months after they hit the shelves.

Were very excited to bring our bars to a wider audience, said Dichter. We strongly believe that we can give people of all ages who care about eating well and staying fit a way to do exactly that without having to do a ton of research into what products to buy. These bars taste good and they keep you feeling energized and healthy. What more could you ask for?

Six Pac OTG bars are organic and high in protein, and have gone through rigorous certification processes to be labeled 100 percent gluten free. The bars are produced using only a few natural ingredients, and they come in a variety of different flavors.

Deringers Wellness Initiatives Receive Praise

Saint Albans, Vermont (PRWEB) March 11, 2015

Deringers commitment to employee wellness has recently been recognized with two Vermont state wellness awards. On March 25, 2015, Deringer will be presented with the Worksite Wellness Award by the Governors Council on Physical Fitness and Sports and the Vermont Department of Health. This is the second consecutive year that Deringer has been honored with this award, which applauds an employee wellness program that decreases absenteeism, reduces employee turnover, and lowers healthcare costs. Additionally, Deringer has received a silver status participant certificate as a Breastfeeding Friendly Employer, which recognizes Deringers adoption of breastfeeding-friendly policies in the workplace.

Deringer is one of 92 businesses receiving the Worksite Wellness Award.

Worksites that promote healthy eating, physical activity, tobacco use cessation, and breastfeeding, contribute to the overall health and wellness of all Vermonters, and they are one of the key reasons we are routinely rated the nations healthiest state, said Health Commissioner Harry Chen, MD.

Although the award recognizes Deringers Vermont program, the companys initiative extends to its 30 customer service centers and all employees in the US and Canada. The program includes educational components, fitness involvement challenges, and participation in national awareness campaigns.

According to a 2013 study from the Department of Labor and US Department of Health and Human services, about 46% of employees participated in employer-sponsored wellness programs. Deringers employee participation exceeded the national average with approximately 72% of employees actively involved in the 2014 corporate wellness initiatives.

These events are part of Deringers corporate wellness program that encourages healthy lifestyles and provides education surrounding many wellness topics. Were excited about our successful transition from an awareness-level to a more hands-on level of participation among our employees. We continually strive to develop employees that are happier and healthier, said Human Resources Manager, Rebecca Greenough.

Partnering with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Vermont, Deringer delivered other themes on nutrition, stress reduction, and an employee invest in you program that focuses on mind and body. As an additional benefit of the wellness program, Deringer employees were motivated to participate in community walks and other wellness programs not formally part of the corporate wellness plan. In addition to group walking challenges, the strength-building portion was the most successful of the companys 2014 wellness initiatives.

Deringers wellness strategy includes regular participation in, and communication regarding, national health awareness events. Employees from Deringer attended the American Heart Associations Go Red for Women event in Vermont on January 29th, which focused on womens heart health education. Deringer sponsored the Vermont event and brought awareness of the cause throughout the organization’s 30 offices by encouraging employees to wear red in support of the national Go Red for Women campaign.

Forbes: Bone Soup Boosts the Immune System; The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) Reviews a Report

Rochester, NY (PRWEB) March 08, 2015

Infected with a latent virus such as herpes, HPV, EBV, CMV, or HCV? The CBCD, which conducted two separate post-marketing clinical studies on the natural antiviral formula of Novirin, recommends taking this remedy against these latent viruses. – Greg Bennett, CBCD

Soups like chicken soup or some stews, which use animal bones as a base may help boost the immune system. (1) Whats better than a hot bowl of homemade soup during a cold winter day? Almost every culture throughout history has used bone broth for its nutritional significance, versatility and overall deliciousness the term Jewish penicillin is used for chicken soup, known to inhibit cell inflammation and mitigate cold symptoms. And the English sip beef tea, or beef broth, used since the Victorian era. helps the immune system by carrying oxygen to cells in the body. (See (2) Additionally, an article on Dr. Frank Lipmans website notes that A traditional folk remedy for colds and flus, bone broth provides a rich array of nutrients (especially gelatin) which support your immune system. (See, from June 3, 2014) (3)

We believe in a comprehensive, positive blend of natural and Western medicines. Its clear that a healthy diet, which includes foods, such as bone based broths, is essential. These soups help provide building blocks for the immune system. They help target active cold and flu viruses, and thats important. In addition to these soups, we recommend taking Novirin against viruses in the latent form, which is based on our clinical studies. Greg Bennett, CBCD

The formula of Novirin was tested by Hanan Polansky and Edan Itzkovitz from the CBCD in two clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines. The studies showed that the Novirin formula is effective against a broad range of viruses, including the herpes simplex family of viruses (HSV-1 and HSV-2), the human papillomavirus (HPV), the Epstein Barr virus (EBV), the human cytomegalovirus (CMV), and the hepatitis C virus (HCV). The clinical studies were published in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, the first, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs. Study authors wrote that, individuals infected with (a latent virus) reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment (4) The study authors also wrote that, we observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms. (4)

Novirin can be ordered online through the product website, here:

Novirin is a natural antiviral dietary supplement. Its formula contains five natural ingredients: Selenium, Camellia Sinesis Extract, Quercetin, Cinnamomum Extract, and Licorice Extract. The first ingredient is a trace element, and the other four are plant extracts. Each ingredient and its dose was chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists at polyDNA, the company that invented and patented the formula, scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals, and identified the safest and most effective natural ingredients against latent viruses.

To date, Novirin is the only natural antiviral product on the market with published clinical studies that support its claims.

There are a few ways, in which bone broth helps the immune system. For example, people with Celiac disease who suffer from a variety of digestive problems due to an intolerance to gluten, often find bone broth is a way to superfeed the system without causing digestive discomfort. I have even started prescribing it to my patients who cannot digest supplements comfortably. In this example, the immune system has become so hyper-vigilant in attacking gluten stressors, that it may also attack beneficial foods such as celery, navy beans and chicken. The body uses the collagen and other connective tissues in the broth to rebuild the damaged tissues like the intestinal lining. In this way, the bone broth heals the gut without irritating the body. (2) The elements that infuse bone broth, glucosamine, chondroitin, collagen, and gelatin support your joints, bones, and reduce inflammation throughout your body. (3)

The CBCD points out that all patients with coeliac disease were also found to be EBV seropositive. (See the Irish Journal of Medical Science, from 1985) (4) In other words, the Epstein Barr virus may be the underlying cause of the immune disorder. While bone broth may help repair the damage caused by the disorder, the CBCD recommends taking Novirin, which was designed to help the immune system target the virus in its latent form.

Dr. Auer recommends that when making your own tasty broth, bones, are readily available from your neighborhood butcher for very affordable prices. Be sure to use the bones and other materials from grass-fed beef, wild-caught fish, or pasture-raised chicken. This will ensure the fat in the broth is less inflammatory and of higher nutritional value. (2) Dr. Auer is an integrative health physician from Zurich, Switzerland.

We recommend eating bone based soups and taking Novirin. On the one hand, youre helping to repair damage viruses may have already caused, and on the other, youre helping your immune system to fight latent viruses that may cause auto-immune disorders in the first place. – Greg Bennett, CBCD
