HerbaLife Nutrition’s Unique Student Outreach

For its 26th year, Herbalife Nutrition has partnered with a major global brand for a competition. This year, it’s a clothing design competition in partnership with the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM). FIDM is considered to be one of the most prestigious design schools in the U.S. They share a passion for innovation and excellence, both skills of which are necessary to thrive in the real business world. The competition has already begun and is expected to continue until late spring 2019. Over 15 FIDM students have been chosen for the Herbalife competition.


Those students will be divided into teams to design sportswear and activewear that closely represents that lifestyle. Those students are expected to select a theme for their design along with the color scheme, type of fabric and making it. Once their projects are finished, a spokesperson will then be chosen to present the material and how they will market their collection. Each student will have the opportunity to create and make their own designs along with participating in a team project. This collaboration is an opportunity for students to practice making a line of clothing that will inspire potential customers to lead healthier lives.

In the past, Herbalife has joined forces with other major brands, such as Nike, in order to help teach design students to inspire potential customers to live healthier lives. During the competition, students also get to directly immerse themselves into the global consumer marketplace. They also do research to help themselves understand the kinds of things that millennials, as a group, tend to like the most. Students will also have a grand opportunity to travel to global design hubs in places known for fashion, such as Paris and Milan. While in those locations, they will have the opportunity to work directly with and interact with Herbalife leaders around the globe.

Why Waiakea Volcanic Water is the Best Choice

We are living in some of the most modern of times. At one point in time, nobody would ever consider buying bottled water. Unfortunately, the water that comes from your tap is loaded with chemical fillers, and these chemical fillers can cause health issues with consistent use. In other cases, the government hasn’t done enough to protect its citizens from harmful, polluted water. Just take a look at the situation in Flint, Michigan. On the other hand, one of the better bottled-water brands in existence today is known as Waiakea. This Hawaiian-based brand was founded in 2012, and it has grown by leaps and bounds.


Waiakea Volcanic water is some of the purest liquids on earth. This specific type of water flows through a labyrinth of porous rocks. These porous rocks just so happen to be located inside of a volcano. That’s right! Waiakea Volcanic water comes from the actual rain and snowmelt of the Mauna Loa Mountains. During its journey through the volcanic rock, the water is highly purified by the time it reaches its final destination. This particular water has plenty of healthy minerals in it such as calcium and magnesium. By drinking this water on a consistent basis, an individual’s health can take a turn for the better because the water is very alkaline. Waiakea Volcanic water has an 8.8 pH-level. The higher the pH-level means that the water is very far from being acidic. Unfortunately, most of the bottled-water brands of today are somewhere in the lower-seven range.


What more can you ever ask for from a high-quality source of water? Ryan Emmons, founder of the company, is revolutionizing the game with this resourceful product. The success of this water has led Emmons to install water well in underprivileged communities around the world. Waiakea Volcanic water appears to be staying around for the long-run and that’s a guaranteed fact.

Elysium Creates a Health Supplement That Maintains NAD+

Elysium Health, a consumer science company, is seeking to apply advances in science and technology into clinically validated products that work. Its first product is called Basis. Basis is a supplement that is clinically proven to increase levels of NAD+ in our cells.

Increasing NAD+ levels in humans works to support cellular well-being. NAD+ is a key coenzyme in our cells that is responsible for several key functions like DNA protection and circadian rhythms. But NAD+ levels decline as we age. Basis works to maintain higher levels of the coenzyme and support our cellular functions as a result.

Basis is a product intended for all healthy adults. Basis is also vegetarian, vegan, nut- and gluten-free, adhering to most dietary needs.

Elysium Health was founded by Dr. Leonard Guarente in 2014. He has conducted significant research on the genetic and molecular causes of aging during his career as the director of The Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT.

Basis is designed for long-term use and is third-party tested for quality. By taking two capsules of Basis daily you can begin to support your cellular health today.

Elysium Health sells Basis on its website. The supplement is available for individual purchase for $60. Each individual jar of Basis contains 60 capsules, which is enough for 30-days of the recommended dose of the supplement. Monthly subscriptions to the supplement decrease its cost to $40-50 per month depending on the length of the subscription.

Elysium Health is looking to increase the number of people it helps and is currently in the process of developing new products that focus on circadian rhythms, skin health, muscle function, and cognitive health. These are in various stages of pre-clinical and clinical trials.
