Action Steps for Banking Summer Vitamins

  • Take Advantage of Summer’s Protective Bounty
  • Summer delivers natural sunscreen protection and complete vitamin nutrition just-in-time in the form of herbs, fruits, vegetables, and sunshine. Bank them now and enjoy their immune-boosting benefits all winter long.
  • Follow a Protective Diet 100% to protect your endothelium, shed excess body fat, and populate your gut with health-promoting microbes, so your body can fully benefit from everything summer offers.
Optimize Sunsine Vitamin D
 Optimize the Sunshine Vitamin—raise Vitamin D levels safely and efficiently by:
*Hydrating with beverages that protect against oxidative stress/sunburn
*Eating foods that repair and rebuild
*Taking time for healthy sun exposure every day  

Summer Beverages that Protect Your Skin From Damage

  • Protective Diet’s herbal beverages are powerfully photo-protective, anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, and rich in antioxidants. They also provide prebiotics for healthy gut microbes. This is calorie-free protection you should be drinking all summer.
Fresh Herb TeaPut fresh mint leaves in a jar with a teaspoon of loose green tea. Pour hot water over & let steep. Caffeine in the green tea is immediately extracted in the first batch. For a decaffeinated cup with all the benefits of protective Catechins, pour the first batch out and brew the same leaves again.
Flower WaterBeautiful in a transparent pitcher w/ ice and lemon. Tastes tangy and lemony. Bright red color is from photo-protective Anthocyanins in hibiscus, unlike artificial coloring in popular summer drinks.
Blue ChaiA kids favorite—add something for flavor (mint leaves, or fresh squeezed lemon or lime) and the Anthocyanin-rich butterfly pea tea changes color from deep blue to bright pink/purple. It’s magic!
  • Order loose teas in bulk. They will keep indefinitely in their original packaging. Just close them after each use.
  • Keep smaller amounts of loose tea handy to make preparing a variety of beverages in rotation convenient. Julie Marie keeps hers in refillable glass containers attractively lined up along a kitchen windowsill.
  • Repurpose glass tamari and vinegar bottles—they make awesome drinking vessels that stay nice and cold.
  • To fill a bottle, brew a beverage concentrate with hot water in a separate pitcher. Strain and pour enough concentrate into your drinking vessel to fill it about 1/3 full. Add natural well water, or filtered water to the top. Put on the lid and chill.
  • Be sure to filter your water if it contains chemicals. A Brita, Pur, built-in fridge, or Berkey water filter is recommended.
  • Sip in the sun, knowing you are getting a lot of hydration with powerful phytochemicals, like UV protective Anthocyanin.

Summer Foods that Repair and Rebuild

  • Eat summer’s collagen-promoting mangoes to enhance both skin tone and texture, turning back the hands of time.
  • Get a healthy golden glow from the inside out by eating dark leafy greens, like Dry Steamed Kale.
  • Help your skin repair its tissues by eating protective Lycopene in watermelon as well as roasted and fermented tomatoes.
  • Hunt for summer fruit at farmer’s markets, Costco, u-pick farms, generous neighbors & Azure Standard’s monthly delivery.
  • Fill your freezer with fresh organic stone fruits and ginger root from this season’s harvest and enjoy them all year.
  • Get Outside Every Day

Healthy Sun Exposure

  • Letting the sun touch your skin every day does not have to cause skin damage or premature aging. You can prevent that.
  • Take in repairing functional foods and beverages that help the body correct and combat oxidative stress caused by the sun, air pollution, and toxins in your home or office (Check out Protective Diet’s Lifestyle recipes for clean replacements for toxic air fresheners, surface cleaner, laundry detergent, toothpaste, dishwasher soap, deodorant, mouthwash, and more).
  • Take your lunch break outside in the sunshine. Take a walk, or just sit and sip on an oxidative stress crushing beverage.
  • Expose as much skin as possible. Do not wear a hat or sunscreen. Expose your abdomen, back, legs, arms, face, and neck.
  • Think of your skin as a solar panel. The more surface area you have the more Vitamin D you can bank for later.
  • Stay exposed for a full 10 minutes. Give the sun enough time to hit your skin, penetrate your body fat, and make Vitamin D.
  • Gradually work up to a longer sun spa session, depending on your unique needs. This is safe and efficient.
Complexion variance to sun exposure

  • Do not shower immediately after time in the sun. Sweat and microbial activity on your skin prolongs Vitamin D production.
  • Sun exposure feels amazing and relaxing because it promotes the microbiome and cellular recycling.

Healthy Microbial Exposure

  • Summer’s microbes will boost your immunity, lift your mood, enhance your appetite, and improve the quality of your sleep.
  • Touch the leaves on the bushes and trees as you pass by them. Tend a garden. Touch the dirt. Inhale deeply. Do yoga directly on the grass with bare feet. Swim in an ocean or a lake. Lay down in a cave. Spend a day in the forest for protection that lasts for weeks. Pet farm animals. You are picking up tons of microbes and getting exposed to different pollens. Food sensitivity and outdoor allergies will be reduced.
  • Take time off. Think about the protective benefits of taking time to be in nature. Studies show that hearing the sound of birds chirping has the same effect on the brain as receiving a wage increase of $250/week.
  • Go camping. Cook rice over a campfire. Eat outside. Sleep on the ground outside. Wake up and brew some hot tea.
  • Never Worry About Vitamin D Deficiency Again
  • Vitamin D Deficiency occurs because the average person is overweight & getting little to no sun-exposure.
  • Take your vitamins in whole food form—the body is designed to metabolize vitamins found in whole foods. Isolated, extracted, mostly chemical vitamin supplements are taxing to the liver. For example, protective Catechins from green tea infusions are safe. But, when taken as supplements, catechin levels have been shown to be toxic.
  • Be confident that your 100% Protective Diet and Lifestyle provides complete vitamin nutrition—researchers in a Johns Hopkins University study concluded that vitamin supplementation is ineffective and sometimes even harmful. “Pills are not a shortcut to better health and prevention of disease, but eating a sugar-free low-fat diet that maintains a low body fat is.”

Cooking Tips

Encouragement

  • Average weight loss is 10 lbs/month. It happens fast! Just follow through every day. It will make Vitamin D easier to produce and eliminate Vitamin D Deficiency.
  • If there was a pill that would improve my health, you better believe I would take it. There’s not.

“We have a great opportunity to improve our health dramatically

by taking advantage of what Nature seasonally provides.”
