The Navitas Naturals Corporate Wellness Program welcomes a variety of professionals in the health and wellness industry to speak on nutrition, health and the power of superfoods.

We kicked off the year with a class led by Licensed Acupuncturist & Herbalist Ben Zappin who showed us how to boost our immunity by sampling a variety of herbs, teas and tonics. He shared simple advice about listening to your own body and it's signals as a cue to start incorporating herbs like thyme into meals to help with respiratory issues, astragalus into soup broths to support the immune system and rhodiola in tea to address stress. Ben gave us some of his immune boosting tinctures, which have helped keep our office sick days to a minimum! To apply some of these tips to your diet look for fresh thyme (or grow your own in a windowsill planter) to add to savory dishes. Visit herb shops which carry an array of bulk herbs. It's easy to stock up on a variety of pre-blended herbal teas as an affordable way to prevent pesky seasonal colds.

In February, Mary-Sheila Gonnella of Occidental Nutrition and an instructor at Bauman College shared some of her top holistic nutrition tips on how to incorporate 'everyday superfoods' into your life. She stressed the importance of including a half plate of dark, leafy greens with every meal. Protein, starches and a thumb size dollop of healthy fats should make up the rest of your plate. She also emphasized how portion size is a key to weight management. Mary-Sheila also advised adding herbs and spice blends (like gomasio made with nori powder, black sesame seeds, nutritional yeast and sea salt) to each meal as a simple way to add digestive aids to your meals and up your nutrition in a flavorful way. She described the Ayurvedic herbs and spices as ‘kindling for your digestive fire’, and noted how spices stimulate digestion through their aroma and by creating enzymatic effects in the body. Keeping your spices in an attractive tray on the table ensures you use them more frequently.

Mary-Sheila also introduced the team to the importance of sprouting and how this simple step can make even more nutrients available to your body as well as making them easier to digest. Sprouting seeds in a mason jar as a 'portable' indoor garden was a great tip both for those living in colder climates and for RV travelers that want fresh food while on the go. It doesn't take up much space and the benefits of sprouting are tenfold. She also suggested healthy snacks that employees could keep at their desk to avoid that mid-afternoon slump including superfood smoothies, sprouted nuts, soup in a thermos and a deluxe salad stored in a tiffin (to go tin).

While a 45-minute Lunch and Learn session can fly by, there have been plenty of great nutrition ideas that our inspired staff has put into action, and we hope that you will too! Our next Lunch and Learn, in April, will feature one of our most extreme ambassadors, Grant Korgan.

Navitas Naturals is growing fast. Mary Beth Gadd, Western Sales Director, and Gabe Michelucci, Account Executive, are two of our recent hires. We asked them a few questions so we can all get to know them better.

Navitas Naturals IMAGE 3-1 Navitas Naturals

Navitas Naturals (NN): What is your favorite superfood?

Mary Beth (MB): This week my new favorite is the Cacao Powder. I like to make a smoothie with: 2TB cacao powder, 1 tsp maca, ½ of a frozen banana and 8 oz of organic vanilla almond milk. It's the healthiest milkshake I've ever had!

Gabe (G):I am relatively new to superfoods. I have always tried to eat very healthy and now I am finding myself incorporating the superfoods by adding our products to yogurt, cereals and smoothies. I love chia seeds and the cacao powder/nibs! They are a great mix with yogurt and cereals and give an extra crunch!

Navitas Naturals (NN): What do you enjoy the most about working for Navitas Naturals?

Mary Beth (MB): The people. Being new, I'm learning so much every day about the products, the customers and the company. I'm constantly blown-away by the knowledge the team has, the speed at which they can turn a project around, and their patience! I must ask 50 questions a day (and admittedly, I ask a few more than once) and everyone is always patient enough to help.

Gabe (G):I like how the company is growing quickly and always progressing. Being a part of that is fantastic because you really get an understanding of how all parts of the company work. The environment here is also great, there are a lot of awesome people that make my job that much more enjoyable.

Navitas Naturals (NN): When you are not busy selling superfoods, what are some of your favorite hobbies to pursue?

Mary Beth (MB): I love spending as much time with my nieces and nephew as I can – they are hilarious, and put me in an instant good mood after ANY long day!

Gabe (G):I would say my main passions are music, sports and the outdoors. I have been playing guitar for quite some time and basically play every day and am obsessed with music. I also play baseball, basketball and golf at least once a week. I hike all over Sonoma, Napa and Marin counties and do a lot of camping, fishing, and wakeboarding plus as many beach trips as possible during the summer.

Navitas Naturals (NN): What is something interesting about the Navitas Naturals team that people probably don't know?

Mary Beth (MB): They are avid bowlers – I've got the brand new bowling shirt to prove it!

Gabe (G): It is a very eclectic group here from all different backgrounds. It’s really cool to chit-chat and come across totally different backgrounds, perspectives and upbringings that life has to offer.
