There has been a lot of discussion over the past few months about how using the NutriBullet is great for transitioning into a healthier lifestyle and controlling weight. The athletic community incorporates the NutriBullet into their pre-and-post-workout routines. Many people have shared how using the NutriBullet has helped ease unpleasant symptoms and improved their overall health; I’m one of them.
What we haven’t heard a lot about is how the senior community has caught on to the benefits of liquefying fruits and vegetables. I would think that the NutriBullet is something of great benefit to people 60 and above. For us over the age of 45, we are already experiencing the effects of aging and have gotten a little taste of what’s it’s going to be like when we’re older. Bones begin to crack when we move around, muscles that we didn’t know existed begin to ache, and getting up from a chair after sitting for an extended period of time almost requires a fork lift because of stiffness in the joints. It becomes more difficult after the age of 60! It is sad when someone wants to be active, but their joints have other plans. This is an unfortunate reality as we get older.
When I began the NutriBullet program, my 66-year-old husband would not go anywhere near my tall, green drink. He thought that it was the most dreadful site and would not consider the thought of drinking anything green, especially if it contained spinach, kale and chard. After observing my amazing results in such a short period of time, he finally gave in and decided to give it a try.
Before NutriBullet became a part of our lives, I had to hear about every ache and pain on a daily basis. After my husband would play tennis, he had to sit with an ice pack on his knees and shoulders. Well, I am happy to report that I haven’t seen an ice pack attached to my husband in months, and the daily reports on his aches and pains are a thing of the past.
Eating right certainly is important early on, but it’s never too late to change eating habits. We are perfect examples of people who chose not to give in to age and who make the changes necessary so that we can enjoy an active lifestyle…without the pain!
