The Center for Food Safety emailed me an alert this week and I thought I would share excerpts of its important message: “A recent study (printed in The Journal of American Medical Association and reported… More
There are many aspects of network marketing that are uniquely geared to help you make money. One important difference from regular sales is that you not only earn money when you sell a product, but you can also earn money on your purchases. This year Nikken gives Black Friday an added twist by creating a “cyberweek” that helps all our Consultants increase point volume as well as commissions. It’s the ideal time of year to role-model Active Wellness and look good doing it!
With our Black Friday sets, available only from November 23 through November 30, Nikken Consultants will receive at least 58% more and up to 71% more points and at least 38% more and up to 42% more leadership bonus (depending on the set).
Two Kenko Energy Sets each contain one KenkoGround, one KenkoTouch and either a small or large pair of mStrides. These two sets introduce three important technologies: Grounding, patented DynaFlux® magnetics and solenoid reciprocating massage.
- The KenkoGround enables you to reconnect to the Earth’s natural surface charge and restore the natural electrical state in your physiology1
- Patented DynaFlux® technology combined with solenoid reciprocating massage imbues the KenkoTouch with pulsating magnetic wave therapy. Opposing magnetic fields with rotating and reciprocating massage mechanisms provide a personal shiatsu-like experience in three settings.
- Patented DynaFlux® intensifies the magnetic field and provides 100% coverage in the Kenko mStrides. These insoles energize the feet. They are ventilated to help keep feet fresh and cool. Each pair supports up to 275 pounds.
Two Jewelry Sets each contain either a stainless steel or gold-plated Perfect Link II with a KenkoHeart pendant and a pair of KenkoHeart earrings—both hypoallergenic.
- The stainless steel or gold-plated Perfect Link II necklace features 800-gauss neodymium magnets throughout their 18-inch lengths. Nickel-free and non-corrosive, these finely crafted necklaces are polished to a glossy finish and look perfect both day and night, with casual or formal wear.
- The KenkoHeart pendant is stainless on one side and gold-plated on the other. It fits perfectly with either the stainless steel or gold-plated Perfect Link II necklace. Symbolizing the Heart of Nikken, the pendant is engineered with an 800-gauss neodymium magnet.
- The KenkoHeart earrings are gold-plated. They match the pendant and feature 600-gauss neodymium magnets.
Who will you be buying for? Make your shopping list now: one for prospects and one for gift recipients. And remember, every new Consultant you sign up before Black Friday will be able to take advantage of this unique offer!

The holiday season is the make-it or break-it season for many brick and mortar retailers. They depend on the last couple of months for the majority of their entire year’s sales. This is less true of online sales, but the common denominator for both types of retailers is that November and December are huge months for making big bucks.
What can Nikken Consultants do to cash in on the holidays? Much of the retailer’s work is already done for you because whenever nikken.com makes an update on the homepage, you automatically receive it on your Personal Web Page (PWP) which is linked to it. Whenever a Customer places an order on your PWP, you have successfully make a sale. This is a great way to make passive income, but don’t you want to actively make more money?
Do the following and see what happens in the next two months:
- On all your social media accounts, post something daily about the holidays, Nikken products and the convenience of shopping on your PWP. Or, you can simply share the Nikken corporate Facebook posts.
- Review your contact list. Update it by removing people who are no longer in your life. More importantly, add new people who more recently are in your life.
- Divide your updated list into two groups. Group A lists people you will telephone. Group B lists people you will email or text.
- Write down a short script that reminds you of what you want to say to your phone contacts. The same script can be emailed/texted to Group B.
- Within Group A and Group B, separate out the Customers who actually ordered Nikken products this year, and note what they purchased. (see * below)
The goal of the script is to get in touch with your existing Customers as well as prospects. Make it personal and warm:
- Remind them the holidays are around the corner and Nikken products make great gifts.
- Remind them that ordering via your PWP eliminates the stress of driving, looking for a parking space, braving the crowds, lining up at the cash registers and carrying burdensome packages.
- Remind them that if they encounter any issue at all during the ordering and shipping process that you will personally help resolve it. Nikken offers Consultants internet and phone support so you can provide your Customers with the best service.
- For those Customers who have previously purchased nutritional supplements, make sure they are on Autoship. If they are already on Autoship, try to introduce products from another category. Since gifting is important this time of year, make sure they know about the various jewelry items. Do the same cross-selling for Customers who purchased in non-nutritional categories. Introduce something new to them.*
- For first-time prospects, deliver your elevator speech. If you don’t have one, ask them to watch the new Why Nikken video that’s on the nikken.com homepage as well as the Nikken YouTube channel. Be sure to follow up with these contacts within three days of having them watch the Why Nikken video.
Nikken Consultants really should perform the five steps consistently year round, but during the season of giving and showing gratitude, you have wonderful opportunities to renew contacts, offer beneficial gift ideas and provide exceptional customer service. Remember to check the Information Center for updates and promotions from Nikken that will help you spread the Active Wellness lifestyle.
A “paragon” is defined as a model of excellence or perfection. The most successful Nikken Consultants live up to being paragons. To help Nikken Consultants advance and increase earnings, the Paragon Award was developed to motivate Consultants to sponsor new people and retail products, the two tried and true ways to advance in ranking and earn more income. Historically, the more effort Consultants exert, the faster they earn and the higher they progress in rank.
The Paragon Award is designed to help Nikken Consultants at the Silver and lower ranks advance to Gold. However, a Consultant at any level can achieve the Paragon Award by meeting the qualifications. To qualify, a Consultant needs to develop three or more new frontline Silver (or above) Consultants within a period of three consecutive months. In addition, awardees need to achieve a minimum of 18,000 Personal Group Point Volume. The prize is a choice of $1,000 US or a 60 inch 4K flat screen TV.
Platinum Consultant Leo LeMay of the province of Quebec in Canada, achieved the Paragon Award and may soon go for another. He chose the $1,000 cash instead of the 60 inch flat screen TV because “when you go for the Paragon Award, you don’t have time to watch TV!”
For anyone taking on this extremely fruitful challenge, Leo gives some personal advice on how to succeed. He says, “I decided not just to try for the Paragon Award but to truly commit to attaining it. I believe in focusing on the decision to succeed and backing it up by taking consistent action every single day.
“Taking action means contacting new prospects, doing the ABC presentations* and coaching people by phone when possible. I committed to making five to seven new contacts each week as well as doing at least one and sometimes two or three presentations each week. These presentations were either an ABC* or a personal one-on-one meeting. By consistently doing these things, I was able to increase volume to meet the qualifications. I also did a lot of coaching by phone.
“To achieve the sponsorship requirements, I asked each of my first-level Consultants who were not yet at the rank of Silver whether they were ready to go for Silver. Réal Houle was the one who was committed, and I continued sponsoring to find two more. Whenever I sponsor new Consultants, I ask them if they are willing to commit to working towards Silver in three months or less. I also ask if they’ll commit to going for the Entrepreneurs Club at the same time. I’m happy to say that after all our hard work, my new frontline people are now independent and know how to retail and sponsor their own new Consultants.”
Congratulations to Leo LeMay for sharing Active Wellness and being a Nikken Paragon!

Un « Parangon » est défini comme un modèle d’excellence, de perfection. Les Consultants Nikken les plus talentueux vivent pour être des modèles. Pour aider les Consultants Nikken à avancer et augmenter leurs gains, la récompense Parangon a été créée pour amener les consultants à parrainer de nouveaux arrivants et faire la vente de produits au détail ; ces deux façons de procéder ont fait leur preuve dans l’avancement au rang supérieur et dans l’augmentation des gains. Historiquement, plus les Consultants s’investissent davantage et plus rapidement leurs gains augmentent et plus vite ils atteignent les rangs supérieurs.
La récompense Parangon est faite pour propulser les Consultants de niveau Argent vers le rang Or ou même plus. Cependant, un Consultant de n’importe quel rang peut obtenir la récompense Parangon en répondant aux conditions d’éligibilité. Pour se qualifier, un Consultant doit impérativement faire évoluer trois nouveaux Consultants, ou plus, au rang Argent (ou plus haut) dans une période de trois mois consécutifs. De plus, les lauréats doivent atteindre un minimum de 18 000 points de volume de groupe personnel. Le prix est au choix, soit une somme de 1000 US$ ou un écran plat 4K de 60 pouces.
Le Consultant Platine Leo Lemay, originaire du Québec au Canada, a reçu la récompense Parangon et devrait bientôt en recevoir une autre. Il a choisi le cash de 1000 US$ à la place de l’écran plat ! Pourquoi ? Voilà ce qu’il dit « quand vous obtenez la récompense Parangon, vous n’avez pas le temps de regarder la télévision ! »
A quiconque veut prendre exemple sur ce challenge superbement réussi, Léo donne des conseils de son expérience personnelle sur la façon de réussir. Il déclare « j’ai décidé non pas d’essayer seulement de gagner cette récompense, mais de m’engager à fond pour l’obtenir. Je pense qu’en m’engageant dans cette décision et en m’y tenant, j’ai pris chaque jour des décisions, j’ai dû agir de façon cohérente et ne jamais me relâcher. »
« Agir signifie contacter des nouveaux prospects, faire des présentations ABC*, parrainer des personnes par téléphone quand c’est possible. Je me suis engagé à obtenir de cinq jusqu’à sept nouveaux contacts toutes les semaines et aussi à procéder à deux ou trois présentations par semaine. Ces présentations se faisaient soit sur le modèle A-B-C soit sur des réunions personnelles en tête à tête. En faisant ces choses de façon cohérente, j’ai été capable d’augmenter mon volume d’affaires et ainsi me qualifier. J’ai fait aussi beaucoup de coaching par téléphone.
Pour atteindre les conditions de qualification, j’ai demandé à chacun de mes Consultants de premier niveau, qui n’avaient pas encore atteint le Rang Argent s’ils étaient prêts pour le rang Argent. Réal Houle était celui qui était engagé mais j’ai continué à parrainer pour en trouver deux autres. Quels que soient les Consultants que je sponsorise, je leur demande s’ils sont d’accord pour s’engager à travailler pour l’obtention du rang Argent et ce dans les trois mois ou moins. Je leur pose en même temps la question sur leur volonté à aller vers le Club des Entrepreneurs. Je suis content de pouvoir dire qu’après tout ce dur travail, ces nouvelles personnes de première ligne sont indépendantes et savent comment parrainer leurs nouveaux Consultants et faire des ventes au détail. »
Toutes nos félicitations à Leo Lemay pour son action dans la diffusion du « Bien Être actif » et sur son statut de lauréat Nikken avec la récompense Parangon !

When we describe someone as “being grounded,” it means he or she is steadfast, centered and balanced. Grounded people are not “up in the air”; they are strong and focused, regardless of the chaos that may be around them. Their feet are planted on terra firma.
Being grounded is not just a metaphor. It’s a physical fact. Before civilization, homo sapiens actually lived on the ground: walking, sleeping and sitting all took place on the Earth itself with nothing in between—no furniture, no shoes. In other words, we were connected to the soil beneath our bare feet.
“Only recently has the knowledge and significance of this connection been explored and explained by scientific experts in geophysics, biophysics, electrical engineering, electrophysiology and medicine. From them, we are learning that the Earth’s electrical energy maintains the order of our own bodily frequencies. We all live and function electrically on an electrical planet. We are each of us a collection of dynamic electrical circuits in which trillions of cells constantly transmit and receive energy in the course of their programmed biochemical reactions. Your heart, brain, nervous system, muscles and immune system are prime examples of electrical subsystems operating within your bioelectrical body. The fact is, all of your movements, behaviors and actions are energized by electricity.”1
Most people are totally unaware of their bioelectrical nature or the energetic connection between their bodies and the earth’s surface. Many of us don’t even realize that we’re disconnected from Mother Nature. Our feet and the rest of our bodies rarely touch real ground. We keep insulated with layers of clothing, rubber soles, mattresses, any assortment of chairs and accessories.
Science informs us that the Earth’s electrons contain a natural, negative charge. Maintaining contact with the ground allows our bodies to naturally receive and become charged with these electrons. When we are “grounded,” we absorb these beneficial electrons that “reduce electrical imbalances in the body.”2 Since our bodies are composed of mostly water and minerals—just like the Earth—we are mutually electrically conductive.
Nikken created the KenkoGround™ to help us maintain our connection to the ground even when indoors. Devised to be plugged into a grounded outlet, the conductive fabric, when placed against our bare skin, duplicates the effect of direct contact with the Earth, our source of natural energies. Try the KenkoGround™ and you’ll see how Nikken has combined the best of science and nature to help us live our best Active Wellness lifestyle.

Grounding is defined as “a process that helps your physical body to connect to life sustaining earth energies.”1 Feeling grounded is the opposite of being jittery, anxious and stressed out. Grounding is therefore an important aspect of Active Wellness. It is an effective way to help combat stress and pervasive EMFs, to help obtain regenerative sleep and to help maintain an overall equilibrium in daily life.*
The KenkoGround™ is a simple yet effective way to reconnect with Mother Nature. Direct contact with the ground (soil, grass, sand, ocean floor) gives our bodies natural energy, but what happens when we wear shoes all day or spend every minute indoors? The KenkoGround™ helps us make the connection to nature even when we’re working at the computer, sleeping in bed and while exercising or doing yoga.
What is the KenkoGround™? It’s an 18” x 36” feather light tripled layered fabric that is quilted together with silver ions. The 80% nylon and 20% silver fabric is conductive, and technology known as “vacuum sputtering” prolongs and strengthens the conductivity.
Silver is the best conductor of electricity because it contains a higher number of movable atoms; however, silver is more expensive than other materials and not normally used unless required for specialized equipment like satellites or circuit boards.2 At 20%, the KenkoGround™ has an unusually high amount of silver in the fabric, making it an outstanding creation.
Nikken ensures the high efficacy of the KenkoGround™ with exceptional materials, top quality construction and a water-resistant surface layer.
Super easy to use, all you need is a grounded outlet to plug into. You can place the KenkoGround™ under your bare feet, drape it over your shoulders or sleep on it. Direct contact is best, but even a small area of skin is enough for grounding.
Here is some feedback from our test group: “better sleep with no tossing and turning,” “more energy in the morning when it was hard to rise before,” “warmth in my usually cold feet,” “tingling sensation in my toes that go numb,” “feeling less jittery even when I have a lot of caffeine,” “calmness” and many other positive responses.

There are more than 500 unique polyphenols. 1 Polyphenols are a category of chemicals that naturally occur in plants. Known as micronutrients, the polyphenols that we get through certain plant-based foods are packed with antioxidants and potential health benefits. Nutritionists believe that polyphenols can improve or help treat digestion issues, weight management difficulties, diabetes, neurodegenerative disease, and cardiovascular diseases.2
Factors that influence the activity of polyphenols in the body include metabolism, intestinal absorption, and the bioavailability of the polyphenol. Although some foods may have higher polyphenol levels than others, this does not necessarily mean that they are absorbed and used at higher rates.3 For example, polyphenols found in actual foods are often more readily absorbed than those encapsulated in supplements.
Different categories of food contain various amounts of polyphenols. Here are some of the more easily accessible sources by food group, with berries having a notably high concentration of polyphenols:
Berries: blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, elderberries, blackberries, cranberries
Other fruit: oranges, apples, grapes, peaches, grapefruit, cherries, black currants, plums, apricots
Vegetables: onions, shallots, spinach, potatoes, black and green olives, globe artichoke heads, broccoli, asparagus, carrots
Nuts: hazelnuts, pecans, almonds, walnuts, chestnuts
Seeds: flaxseeds, sesame seeds
Legumes: Soybeans, black beans, white beans
Beverages: Coffee, green tea, black tea, red wine
Fats: dark chocolate, virgin olive oil, sesame seed oil
One of the easiest ways to incorporate polyphenols into the diet is to eat a Mediterranean diet. It emphasizes fruits and vegetables, includes ample amounts of olives, nuts and seeds, adds seafood and lean meat, and goes easy on starchy carbs.
Two Active Wellness formulations make it easy to insert antioxidant polyphenols into your daily regiment:
- Kenzen Super Ciaga® is an organic superfruit juice concentrate that is not only delicious straight from a shot glass, but also serves as a great mixer with seltzer water to help you kick the soda habit. The numerous high-polyphenol organic berries in the formula are each harvested at the peak of their growth cycle for potency and natural sweetness.
- Kenzen Ten4® Energy Drink Mix contains organic matcha green tea, the most concentrated form of green tea. It’s another way to add antioxidant polyphenols into your daily regimen, and it’s versatile enough to be enjoyed hot or cold.
As you enjoy these delicious drinks, they’ll be busy helping your body cope with the onslaught of free radicals.
For three days only, October 16, 17 and 18, place a single order by phone with both the 2-pack Kenzen Super Ciaga® and Kenzen Ten4® Energy Drink Mix, and you’ll receive a yellow Kenko PowerBand® necklace as our gift to you!
