VitaFruit & Evergreen

VitaFruit is available by phone. Call Christine at 480-688-8147

Legend has it, that Genghis Khan discovered new fruits when he was conquering Asia. When he was in Mongolia, he fed his soldiers the combination of these rare fruits, and he noticed they had more energy, were able to march longer and cope with the heat and humidity. Dr. Chen has reintroduced these fruits to the world and named the product VITAFRUIT. The Hou Han Guo herb in the VitaFruit has been known to help with the throat, voice, and speaking. One time when Dr. Chen was asked what the secret of VitaFruit was, he answered that he felt there are so many naturally occurring nutrients in the VitaFruit that man has not even discovered yet. With all the antioxidant research going on today, Dr. Chen is light years ahead of everyone else because of his concentration and whole food nutrients instead of isolated chemicals.


VitaFruit benefits the body for tissue repair throughout the entire body. It is easily digested and tastes great! There is so much information today about the benefits of antioxidant foods helping us fight the negative effects of pollution. Free radicals are chemical bombs that can cause the cells to change abnormally. When the body has plenty of antioxidant foods like VitaFruit, and many more of our Sunrider foods, it helps the body fight off the negative effects of pollutants and chemicals we are all bombarded with every day of our lives. Vitamin C and Vitamin A are also great antioxidant nutrients that fight the free radicals and help prevent the damage they do in our bodies.

VitaFruit is also rich in iron. Antioxidants have also been found to be important in anti-aging. They seem to strengthen organs and muscles. If you are not eating your five fruits and vegetables each day, VitaFruit will help you get those missing nutrients.

Since heat will destroy the nutrients in Vitamin C, only add it to cold liquid. VitaFruit will stabilize the Vitamin C in VitaFruit. It will not dissipate out for 72 hours after it has been mixed up. When we cut an orange open, the Vitamin C will dissipate out in about 20 minutes. Even orange juice, if not freshly squeezed, doesn’t have the Vitamin C that is in the orange. Most orange juice products have to be fortified with synthetic ascorbic acid because the Vitamin C has been lost in processing.

I personally love my super-cocktail of VITAFRUIT and EVERGREEN. It is a delicious icy drink. EverGreen is highly

concentrated liquid chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is the green pigment in plants that equates to the red blood in our bodies. It is identical to blood except for one molecule (magnesium). When Chlorophyll is consumed it fortifies and oxygenates our blood and helps the body build our iron supply. Most other liquid chlorophyll products contain water-soluble chlorophyll which does not allow the oxygenation. Iron supplements frequently cause constipation – not EverGreen! As a matter of fact, research shows that chlorophyll can benefit the small and large intestines and lubricate the illeocecal valve (where the small intestine empties into the large intestine.)

Sunrider Nourish, Balance, Cleanse with HCG

This is my Sunrider Nourish, Balance & Cleanse with HCG Journal.

Many of you asked me to document how my progress is going. So here it goes.

First, I start out with a confession that I have not been eating the healthiest. Thank goodness for Sunrider for helping me balance out the pollution I put into my body, i.e. ice cream, tortilla chips, cheese, alcohol… love Pinot Noir, lots of breads, etc.. you get the picture.

From my excuses with stress, family issues, personal and work challenges I’ve eaten badly at times and my weight has risen to 132 pounds as of the start of this NBC with HCG diet, May 13.

A week has passed and I weigh 127 lbs. I’ve been at a status quo with this weight for two days.

8 am

I inject .2 ml into myself in the morning.  5 Quinary Capsules, 2 Dandelion (morning and night)

I eat half an apple- Drink Calli Tea Reg. with Stevia

Light exercise- walk or bike with my dog, Max.

10 am

Drink Calli Tea Reg. with Stevia and mix with Plain NuPlus


1/2 chicken breast with salad- dressing is balsamic vinegar

3 pm

1/2 apple if I like and more Calli Tea Reg. with Stevia and NuPlus.

5:30 pm

Salad with 1/2 chicken breast

Day 4… I ate several strips of fish and a handroll. Boy that felt good.

Extra… munching on occassion with celery and red peppers.

I’m really not that hungry, my energy level has been very good.

Today- Day 6 feeling really achy below from my waist down. Very tired this morning, too.

The night before and last night feeling really achy… hard to sleep, urinating alot…

Only one poop this week. Sorry for being graphic. I think I’m achey because I need to release the toxins. There I go thinking :) )

The Plan: I plan to finish the cleanse on Monday, 5.27. The day before I move our office & home to the San Diego area. My goal is to be 120 lbs by then.

I hope I can stay strong.  I am moving and starting a new life and wanted to thank my body for hanging in there. So I wanted to purge not only stuff in my house but stuff on my body. How’s that for being over ambitious?

I really needed to do the cleanse and love how I am nourishing myself with Sunrider. Updates to come.

Calli Tea Fan.. Dan Baglione

Testimonial: This is a bit long. Feel free to edit/shorten it. I have a website at
I started running shortly before turning 47 (in 1977). I am now 81. While my aging knees limit the amount of actual running I do, I still walk, jog, and even run a little on local trails and roads. I am currently averaging 33 miles/week doing 10 to 13 miles at a time 3 days/week. Several years ago, I met and began running with a local lady who introduced me to Calli tea (Regular). She was my source; but she and her husband subsequently moved to Montana, and I stopped using Calli. I have been a drinker of cold, sweet tea for more than 55 years, 365 days a year. In my early days of running, there were no special sports drinks or even running shoes. Sweet tea was one of my sport drinks at that time (also uncarbonated coca cola). I later learned that many other runners also used sweet tea in those years. Eleven months after I started running, I did my first marathon. It was a very hot day. My wife met me at the 20 mile mark with cold water and cold sweet tea. I drank about 1 quart of each before continuing on to the finish.
In 1979, after having completed a few more marathons, I did my first ultramarathon (any distance beyond 26.2 miles). It was a 50K (31 miles). The following year I did a 40 mile run (Moon to Noon) from Palos Verdes, CA to the Santa Monica pier.In the ensuing years I have started more than 100 ultramarathons. I have finished four 100 mile trail runs, many 50 mile runs, two 6-day races, and two 7-day races. I finished the Ironman Triathlon in February, 1982. Ran around Lake Tahoe (72 miles) in September of that year. In 1987, I hiked to 18,000 ft in Nepal for a great view of Everest, Then, two days later, I started the first Everest Marathon at 17,000 ft finishing at 11,300 ft. In February 2000, at age 69, I hiked with a full pack (~45 lbs) to just over 20,000 ft on Aconcagua in Argentina. I have been physically active most of my life. I am very grateful to my parents for the genes they gave me.
About two weeks ago, my wife discovered a box of the Calli tea which has been lurking unknown for at least 7 years. I made a little less than a quart of it, sweetened with much sugar, and put it in the refrigerator to get cold. I then did a strenuous 10 miles on a hilly trail. When I returned from that outing, the first thing I did was drink some of that tea. I had forgotten how much I liked the taste, and I became aware of how refreshing it was to my tired body. Over the next few hours, I consumed all of the tea and learned that not only did it taste very good, but also, my recovery from the effort of the day was much quicker than in the past. I have since made it a point to make a quart of the Calli tea before each long outing. I have compared the effect with that obtained drinking ordinary tea (black tea) as in the past. While I still enjoy toe ordinary sweet tea, it does not provide the recovery effect of the Calli tea. I shall continue to drink ordinary sweet tea on a daily basis, but I shall have Calli tea waiting for me on those days that I walk/jog several miles.

Tricia, Love of my life since 1952!
