Antioxidant Scans Generate Food for Malnourished Children
By Joe Childs
For several months New Leaf Market patrons have taken the opportunity to have their nutritional status analyzed through a proprietary scanning technology provided by NuSkin Enterprises. The scanner measures the level of carotenoid antioxidants in skin tissue, an important indicator of the body’s ability to fend off and repair free radical damage that can have serious health consequences. As the local representative, I perform the scans at minimal cost with all proceeds donated to Nourish the Children, a NuSkin initiative to feed malnourished children in underdeveloped countries and the United States.
The program, which has been in effect for 10 years, partners with Feed the Children and other international humanitarian organizations to distribute VitaMeal®, a NuSkin product designed to provide all essential nutrients (unlike most humanitarian food that consists mainly of grain, such as corn, but may lack many essential nutrients necessary for healthy development). Nearly 100,000 starving children throughout the world are fed daily by this initiative and the New Leaf Market community has already funded over 1,500 meals.
You too can participate in this vital effort by purchasing VitaMeal that is then distributed by Feed the Children at no additional cost.
For information concerning Nourish the Children and the opportunity to participate, see me, Joe Childs, at New Leaf Market on the second Saturday of the month.
