What People Say About re:iimmune

The change of the year has us thinking about how changing your routine or adding something new into your life can be unsettling or invigorating or perhaps a little bit of both. Even something small, like adding re:iimmune into your routine to better improve your gut health and stay hydrated can seem like a huge commitment. You might be thinking “I’ve got a thousand things to do in a day. What? Now I’ve gotta remember to drink this too?” Don’t laugh! You know what we mean. All of us are creatures of habit but it takes some of us a lot of time, effort, reminders and information to fall INTO those habits. So today we thought we’d give you some ideas on how to kickstart the habit of making re:iimmune part of your day and inspiration from some of our customers on why you should!

What People Are Saying

“Best. Product. Ever. My wife and I are both very health aware and try to make good choices. re:iimmune® does exactly what it says it will do – help you rehydrate and recover. How and why? It is the product of solid research. Simply put, it really does “make people better.” Dale Moore

“As a Registered Dietitian I am always on the lookout for superior nutrition products that are supported by evidence-based medicine, and have found a keeper in re:iimmune.  I often find myself becoming dehydrated throughout my busy workday, when things become so hectic it’s easy to forget to drink or eat anything! It’s a snap to mix up some re:iimmune and instantly feel recharged- and it tastes great, too, not like some other supplements that contain artificial sweeteners and a chemical-laden aftertaste. The nutritionist in me also likes fact that there aren’t extra calories from added sugars- it’s really just good, simple, nutrition- and can be enjoyed by diabetics or others who are controlling their carbohydrate intake.  Knowing that re:iimmune contains probiotics and L-glutamine, both proven to support intestinal health, makes me feel even better about drinking it and recommending it to patients, especially those on low-fiber diets or with gastrointestinal disease. re:iimmune contains just the right ingredients whether you’re recovering from an illness or just trying to stay healthy! And did I mention it tastes great?!” Stephanie B.

“I have been a daily user of Emergen-C and was recently introduced to re:iimmune®, my current job requires weekly travel with extended stays in hotels and use of rental cars and public transportation, my body tends to weaken / breakdown with the air travel and poor diet. With re:iimmune’s® keen ability to rehydrate my system it allows me to stay focused and maintain my energy level.” Mike Smith

re:iimmune® has been helping me since I was diagnosed with cancer. I drink one packet the day before and one the day of chemotherapy. I have not needed any additional medication for nausea. I am so thankful for this product.” Ladonna Appelbaum

“I have suffered from IBS since I was a teenager, I know how important “gut health” is so when I heard about re:iimmune I knew I had to try it.  I have used it for a couple years and I love it.  Every morning I drink a full glass of it, so it helps rehydrate me and the probiotics keep my gut in check. Since starting on re:iimmune I have not had any IBS issues, even in situations that would otherwise cause a flare up. I also have shared the product on numerous occasions with my elderly parents when they have had the flu and or have to take antibiotics and it has helped them recover faster and like me, my Dad thinks the salty flavor is great.  So, why re:iimmune…because it is all about taking care of yourself, being healthier, and living an active life style with NO side effects.”  Paula T.

“As a hairstylist and make-up artist, I spend most of my days on my feet rushing around, and I rarely have a chance to even slow down long enough to take a drink of water or eat a full meal. I love my job, and I am passionate about creating art with my clients, but the toll it takes on my body is unavoidable. Days when I’m feeling especially run down, dehydrated and fatigued, one glass of re:iimmune will put me right back on my A game. When my husband has clients in town, his job is to entertain them, so after a long day of work when the only thing my body wants me to do is relax and recuperate, re:iimmune gives me the refreshment and stamina to socialize without winding up sick the next day!” Vivian Conway

“I was first introduced to re:iimmune by a friend, when I was feeling under the weather one day. Back in 2009 I had gastric bypass (weight loss) surgery. I have kept off about 80 pounds of that weight loss. One thing that weight loss surgery patients must be very attune to, is their hydration levels. Some who have had this type of surgery can dehydrate faster than the average person, and it can be much more dangerous, sometimes even sending people to the hospital for days of re-hydration I.V.’s. Living in the great state of Texas where summer temperatures easily reach over a hundred degrees for several days in a row, I must stay acutely aware of my water intake. Any time I feel like I’m not quite there with my hydration, or I’m feeling tired, I just drink a re:iimmune and in about 30 minutes, I feel completely refreshed and recharged.  I feel so glad that I was made aware of this wonderful product and I always keep a box on hand. I’ve recommended it to friends as well!  While I may not be the type of consumer using this product for a more serious medical issue, I think it’s good to get the word out that this is extremely useful for the “average” consumer; i.e., after having been out in the heat all day, etc.  Everybody needs re:iimmune.

Thanks for creating this great product!”  Angie M.

Making re:iimmune Part of YOUR Day

So as you can see, people have so many good reasons to add our hydrobiotic recovery formula into their routine! Now how do you go about turning that into a habit? We found this awesome article on lifehack.org “18 Tricks to Make New Habits Stick” by Scott H. Young. We’ll share a few of his recommendations below but then we highly recommend you click on the link above to read it in it’s entirety because his suggestions are spot on!

Commit to Thirty Days –  Young says, “Three to four weeks is all the time you need to make a habit automatic. If you can make it through the initial conditioning phase, it becomes much easier to sustain. A month is a good block of time to commit to a change since it easily fits in your calendar.”

Stay Consistent – With any habit you are trying to form you need to play upon your regular routine. So for something like adding re:iimmune into your routine, find a certain time of day that you can easily see yourself mixing and drinking it. Perhaps it works best for you to mix it up in the morning and drink it in the car on the way to work. Or maybe it’s better for you to incorporate it during lunch. As Young says, “When cues like time of day, place and circumstances are the same in each case it is easier to stick.”
Remind Yourself –  Young suggests, “Around two weeks into your commitment it can be easy to forget. Place reminders to execute your habit each day or you might miss a few days. If you miss time it defeats the purpose of setting a habit to begin with.”

Digestive Health – Why you need both probiotics and prebiotics

What are probiotics and prebiotics and how do they affect digestive health?

The human digestive system is full of both good and bad bacteria and when all is working well, the good bacteria help to keep the bad at bay! Inside the digestive tract there are trillions of microorganisms working to keep the balance and keep the entire body healthy. An imbalance doesn’t just cause gastrointestinal and digestive issues. Our gut health is connected to brain function and mood, skin health and our immune system.

Probiotics are living bacteria and yeast which live in the intestines and help balance out bad bacteria in the digestive system. We ingest probiotics through foods like yogurt, kefir and aged cheeses such as bleu, gouda and cheddar. You can also get probiotics through soybean products and brined and fermented foods like pickles and sauerkraut.

However, all on their own probiotics can only have a limited effect because they are easily destroyed in our system. Probiotics must have particular sources of food in order to flourish and that’s where prebiotics lend a helping hand in digestive health! Prebiotics are not living bacteria, they are forms of fiber which act as food for probiotics. Legumes, beans, bananas, berries and vegetables like tomatoes, onions, asparagus, and greens are all good sources of prebiotics to add to your diet.

Often a good diet is not enough to keep a good balance of probiotics and prebiotics in our systems and a supplement can be of enormous benefit. Especially if one has been taking antibiotics which can kill off a number of good bacteria, if one has contracted food poisoning or is recovering from an illness. The latter was one of the driving forces in the creation of re:iimmune. We want to help people get better, better and two of the best things you can do for your digestive health when your system has been thrown out of whack for whatever reason is to stay hydrated and keep your gut in good health!  

Registered Dietitian’s Stamp of Approval – re:iimmune for Intestinal Health- Why Wednesday

And did I mention it tastes great?!”

Stephanie B.

It’s always exciting to hear from dieticians and other health care professionals who are using  and recommending re:iimmune to their patients and clients for better intestinal health! Dr. Kerri Miller’s intention in creating the first ever  Hydrobiotic formula was to help people get better, better. Added sugars are not better, in fact they are counterproductive! Much thought and consideration has gone into making a supplement that assists in hydration and helping to balance the digestive system but with no added sugars, artificial sweeteners or terrible aftertaste. Thanks for the shout out Stephanie!

Lactobacillus Acidophilus – The Friendly Bacteria

At re:iimmune we want to help our customers feel better faster as they are recovering from illness, help restore hydration and assist in boosting immunity. When we don’t feel well, there’s sometimes a disconnect between our minds and our bodies and we feel powerless to do anything. But knowledge is power! When one understands how different elements in our product, like Lactobacillus, aid in digestion and overall wellness, it helps to create a connection. When we know how our bodies work, we gain a sense of control in being an active participant in our own health. 

Lactobacillus Acidophilus is a bacteria but it’s a friendly one! It normally lives in our digestive, urinary and genital systems without causing disease. In fact, the bacteria is a pretty good friend to have on our side. It assists in breaking down food, absorbing nutrients and fighting off organisms that cause very unfriendly problems such as diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome and yeast infections. Lactobacillus produces Vitamin K and lactase which is the enzyme that breaks down the lactose (sugar) in milk. Therefore, when it is included in foods such as yogurt, kefir and soy products it can help people who are lactose intolerant.The bacteria becomes the lactose intolerant person’s best buddy, doing much of the work in breaking down the lactose and making it easier to digest.

We include probiotics like Lactobacillus in re:iimmune to support our body’s natural immunity, 70% of which is our digestive tract. Think of your body as an ecosystem. When all things are in balance, the ecosystem flourishes. However when the ecosystem of your body is bombarded with pathogens like E. coli, Staphylococcus Aureus, Salmonella or Candida it compromises that natural immunity and throws your system off kilter. Probiotics help to restore order in the ecosystem and get our immunity back on track!

Fighting Norovirus- Hydrobiotic Recovery Formula

fight_back_2.0_with watermark

Travel season, cruise excursions, or even large conference type settings like we have recently heard about in the news, are all the perfect breeding grounds for the dreaded norovirus. Although cruises and resort destinations have become infamous for their reputation of remaining plagued by the norovirus, they aren’t the only place this nasty bug likes to lurk. Norovirus is easily spread where there are a large amount of people in one place for any extended amount of time. For example, it is common to hear of outbreaks in schools, healthcare facilities, military camps, and prisons. Not only is norovirus spread from person to person, but it is also often spread through contaminated food in restaurants and catered event type settings.

Over the last few years, we’ve heard stories in the media about an influx of norovirus on cruise vacations and resort destinations – mostly due to large numbers of people residing in close proximity, traveling to foreign waters, eating and drinking new foods, and exposing themselves to unfamiliar bacteria. Although norovirus isn’t exclusive to cruise ships and vacation destinations, it is a concern to keep in mind when you’re preparing for your next trip or convention. Norovirus is an infection that induces a sudden onset of vomiting and diarrhea and is highly contagious, as it spreads rapidly through close contact with an infected person.  

Here are some helpful tips to prevent catching norovirus, according to the CDC:

Wash Fruits and Vegetables Thoroughly and Cook Seafood Thoroughly it’s important to be aware that noroviruses are very resilient, they can survive temperatures as high as 140F

When You are Sick DO NOT Prepare Food for Others, or Care For Others Who Are also Sickeven if you are feeling better, the truth is that you can still spread norovirus for up to two days after your symptoms have faded.

Clean and Disinfect Contaminated Surfaces it is suggested that you use a chlorine bleach with a concentration of 1,000 to 5,000 ppm (5-25 Tablespoons of bleach to one gallon of water) when washing contaminated surfaces.

Wash Laundry Thoroughly handle soiled items carefully and with rubber gloves, you should wash all soiled laundry at the maximum available cycle length and then machine dry them.

The Clinical Strength Hydration formula in re:iimmune® is sugar free and diabetic friendly, making it a safe resource for everyone experiencing dehydration caused by diarrhea and vomiting. The multi strain pre and probiotic blend in re:iimmune® restores balance to your digestive health after the damage caused during an illness, while the L-Glutamine works to repair damage done to the tissue in the intestinal wall. The generous dose of ginger found in re:iimmune® works to soothe nausea, and strengthens the immune system alongside a healthy serving of zinc contained in each sachet. When it comes to enjoying your travels, don’t let norovirus or dehydration throw a hitch in your plans. The last thing you want to happen during an important event is to wind up stuck in a bed, far from the comforts of your own home -so add re:iimmune® to your packing list, and..  

get better, better™!

What is a Hydrobiotic™?

When you make new things, you get to make up new words- so that’s what we did! Dr. Kerri Miller created a mighty combination of Clinical Strength Hydration®, and a multi strain pre and probiotic blend containing a special combination of 14 different probiotics and one prebiotic (the food probiotics require in order to flourish). When you look at the various keys to recovery, you’ll see that very high up on the list sit both hydration and intestinal health. Alongside these two vital components of recovery, you’ll also see adequate rest, a healthy diet, exercise, and a positive mindset listed.
hydro

Dr. Miller saw a missing piece in our healthcare system after working in it for over 20 years. We weren’t providing adequate means for our patients to stay hydrated and improve their intestinal health in an easy and accessible way, so she did something about it! She began her journey to create a solution, the first oral Hydrobiotic™. The first and foremost portion of this equation is “Hydro”, which represents the Clinical Strength Hydration® formula found in re:iimmune®. It is the first sugar free hydration pack made for rapid hydration needs. The “biotic” in Hydrobiotic™ stands for, you guessed it, probiotics! Not only did Dr. Miller witness her patients struggling to stay hydrated, but many medicines given in critical situations such as cancer, surgery and chronic illness, take costly tolls on your digestive health.

The pre and probiotic blend in re:iimmune® was especially formulated to promote restoration of the beneficial gut flora (good bacteria) that keep your digestive system balanced and functioning properly. L-Glutamine is an amino acid found in re:iimmune® that has more than one purpose, not only is it a co-transporter that helps your cells absorb hydration quicker, but it also helps rebuild healthy tissue in your intestinal wall. The ginger extract found in re:iimmune® boosts immunity, aids in digestive health and also reduces nausea. In cases of chemotherapy patients, antibiotic use and pregnancy, nausea is a common symptom and ginger is a safe solution. As you see, the Hydrobiotic™ formula in re:iimmune® represents it’s core combination of both hydration and probiotic supplementation, but the moving parts that make re:iimmune® the best way to get better, better™ are vast!

Impacting the World One Sip at a Time

Why Wednesday

“I use rbritnee_maysee:iimmune to re-hydrate and support not only my body but also my child’s when he is ill. Why do I choose re:iimmune? For me, it’s about motherhood and making a conscious choice to use products that make the world a better place. It is re:iimmune/ Make People Better’s initiative to help prevent unnecessary deaths from dehydration by working with international aid organizations.  I feel it is the responsibility of motherhood to support other women and mothers who are not as fortunate to live in a country such as the United States. I believe in supporting companies that quite simply, “do good”. Companies like re:iimmune that share my same belief, that the choices I make here at home can positively impact the lives of mothers and children around the world.” -Brittnee

 

The very foundation that re:iimmune® was built on centered around the concept of intentional living, if you ask Dr. Kerri Miller what was one of her number one inspirations when it came to the creation of re:iimmune®- she will tell you she found her “Why”. If you have breathe in your lungs, you have a resounding “Why” of your own to fulfill, you have a purpose and something valuable that only you can provide to this world. Just as my fingerprints differ from yours, so do our purposes’ vary. When Dr. Miller created
re:iimmune®, she was driven by an overwhelming passion to help make people better (hence the name of our company: Make People Better LLC).

Whether you’ve grown up in a developed country, or built your immediate life in one, you may feel overwhelmed by the desperate situations others are facing all over the world that appear so far outside your sphere of impact, yet every day we are presented with opportunities to make a global difference. Thanks to companies like TOM’s shoes, MudLove jewelry, and S’well water bottles (just to name a few) we are able to reach across, otherwise impassable boundaries, and make a difference! Every time you purchase Britnee_Maysea box of re:iimmune®, one serving of potentially life-saving, Clinical Strength Hydration® and Intestinal Immune support formula is given to a person suffering from life threatening dehydration in a developing country. The combination of rapid hydration and multi-strain pre and probiotic blend in re:iimmune® not only helps you and your family get better, better™, but it also allows you to be a crucial part of our mission to end dehydration related deaths around the world!

No More Bandaids

Why Wednesday

“I’ve strugglSarah_Garzaed for most of my adult life with constant UTI’s and in 2014, this reached an all-time high. I was pregnant, and during this pregnancy, I had 7 (yes 7) bladder infections and consumed countless rounds of antibiotics. By the end of it, I was exhausted, frustrated and feeling awful. My doctors decided to put me on a daily prescription that I would have to take for the rest of my life. Not a cure by any means, but a ‘bandaid” just to get me by. After reading the side effects of the medication, I knew I had to find a way to heal myself naturally. I began a diet of whole foods, and I started pumping my body full of probiotics. During this personal health revolution, a friend of mine told me about re:iimmune. It sounded like everything I was trying to put in my body all in one small packet! I ordered some re:iimmune almost immediately. Now, re:iimmune has become a part of mine and my family’s regular health routine. Sometimes, if I’m feeling particularly run down, I’ll take it once a day for several days in a row. Recently I had a stomach virus and the only thing I could keep in my system was the re:iimmune. My body was able to heal itself while staying hydrated. It’s been over a year and a half and I haven’t had one UTI, nor have I been on any antibiotics. I also never did take the prescription that was supposed to make my life “bearable”.  For me, this is a medical miracle! I’m the healthiest I’ve ever been and I contribute this to great gut health with the help of re:iimmune. I feel better at 40 than I did at 30, and I’m expecting a healthy baby boy this summer.” -Sarah

 

As a society, we have just begun to scratch the surface when it comes to our understanding of digestive health, and the effect it has on our overall health- the benefits of a healthy gut are proving to be endless! From energy improvements, uplifted moods, hormone balance and generalized health- to notable improvements in chronic illnesses and serious diseases. Digestive health has been linked back to all things positive in regards to our wellbeing. It’s time that we stop putting “Band-Aids” on our laundry list of symptoms, and begin to heal ourselves from the inside out.

When it comes to a healthy digestive system, there isn’t one explanation, one supplement, or one diet to correct the complexities of each individual body. Instead, it takes work, research and an open mind to find what’s right for you and your body. One thing we do know is that no matter who you are, or what your body tolerates, adequate hydration and healthy intestinal bacteria will assist your body in its attempt to heal itself. re:iimmune® contains a multi-strain probiotic blend that is accompanied by a prebiotic which acts as food for the probiotics and in turn, aids in your healthy intestinal bacteria’s growth. At the core of re:iimmune® is our Clinical Strength Hydration® formula which helps your body maintain optimal function for all of its vital organs, while strengthening your immune system. If you’re feeling distraught over reoccurring symptoms, a negative prognosis, or a plateau in your personal health goals, add re:iimmune® to your routine and get better, better™!

Shake it Off!

Why Wednesday 

lezley_Dhonau“After a 4 month run of colds, flu, stomach ache and sickness- I felt unable to shake off the last of it each time to be able to fully recover. I then got hit with oral thrush which really told me my guts were not in a good way and I suspected I was chronically dehydrated too. With just the first few mouthfuls of re:iimmune I feel uplifted and more energized. It’s like drinking a fresh coconut…you know it is good – it feels like it is instantly boosting your health!  I changed the food I eat to clean out my system, but the re:iimmune has been a key part of recovering fully and resetting my gut to a healthier state, and no cramping. I am passionate about only putting natural foods in my body and re:iimmune fits this need for me. It is now a firm addition to my medical kit.” -L. Dhonau
Those first few hints of a cold or flu normally send you running for the medicine cabinet with determination. You tell yourself “I will not let this slow me down!” If you begin to fight it early on, you just might be fortunate enough to kick the infection before it’s got you stuck to your bed for a week or so. Although, when an infection does take up roots, it may send you on a downward spiral that can last weeks, or months before you fully recover. When you eventually do recover, you are often left with a compromised immune system, and the after effects that most common symptom relievers leave behind. Chronic illness patients can attest to the fact that feeling ill for long periods of time can feel discouraging, but don’t give up. After you’ve conquered an illness, it’s important to remember that your immune system has taken a hit and will be left more vulnerable to further infection even after your symptoms have cleared up.
The illness recovery formula in re:iimmune® contains just what your body needs in order to shake off an infection, or infections. Hydration is a key component to your body’s ability to create healthy cells and a strong immune system. Often times, when you’re experiencing cold and flu symptoms, drinking fluids is easier said than done, and your hydration levels drop as a result. The ginger root in re:iimmune® helps to soothe an upset stomach as the Clinical Strength Hydration® Formula, and multi strain pre and probiotic blend, get to balancing out your body’s hydration and intestinal immune support needs. Since re:iimmune® is sugar free, and doesn’t contain toxic coloring agents, your body won’t have to spend it’s energy figuring out what to protect itself against and what to use to heal itself. Since nearly 70% of your body’s immune system is located in  your intestines, our intestinal immune support formula boosts the very core of your immune system while helping you get back up on your feet.
Take a tip from our friend in the U.K.- keep re:iimmune® as a firm addition to your medical kit, and get better, better™!
