Dear Customer Thank you for your interest in Vitality 4 Life. 15 years ago, our company's founder, Roger Akins began designing and distributing quality Living Juice extractors for the Australian market. During the early years, Vitality 4 Life developed the concept of living juice in association with such organisations as the Hippocrates Institute in Florida, USA. Since this time consumer awareness has developed significantly; a tiny alternative niche has now become mainstream. Vitality 4 Life has pioneered the introduction of coldpressed juice extractors to the Western World and now exports to UK, Europe, Canada, USA and NZ. We are encouraged that our Vitality 4 Life `Approved Product' range is regarded as the finest in the world. Our selection criteria remain simple; The product must offer the customer superior value and quality, deliver genuine health benefits and be made in a way that recognises the scarcity of our planets resources. During the past 15 years we have never forgotten why we started Vitality 4 Life and our belief in the healing power of living food, living juice, pure water, fresh air and sunshine.

What about Juice from the Supermarket?

Hugh Moran

Resident Naturopath at Vitality 4 Life

Processed bottled juice on supermarket shelves comes in all forms ­ plastic or glass bottles, canned, refrigerated cartons or vacuum packed and can last up to 2 years. The fruit processing industry uses powerful yet the same low speed extraction process as the cold press juicers to extract the maximum yield of juice from the fruit. Once cold pressed, fresh fruit juice is quickly pasteurised or heat treated at around 90°C. This heating process has been shown to destroy certain nutrients and changes the pH from alkaline to acid. Most antioxidants are heat sensitive and can reduce by 15% each time a juice is heated. By the time the juice is packed and sold in the supermarket or deli it may have been heated at 2 or 3 locations to get in the final bottle and the long term storage of pasteurised juice leads to a further breakdown of nutrients over time. If you look closely at the ingredients, you will see that a lot of juice companies use juice concentrates to save costs, but regardless of whether the juice is made from concentrate or not, the alkaline properties and naturally occurring nutrients are greatly diminished. These juice concentrates are often imported and typically involve hours of heating to remove the water, leaving little nutritional value behind.

The information on the properties of living juice was taken from Dr. Norman Walker's book Fresh Vegetable & Fruit Juices

The right Choice...

Australia's leading consumer authority has the living proof about living juice!

In October 2007, Choice tested the claim the coldpress-style machines' juice is more nutritious and that it'll stay fresh and tasty for up to 48 hours. They found that the manufacturers' claims are true... and Vitality 4 Life has the best juicers! Choice tested 12 leading brands of juicers and found the Oscar Vital Max 900 to be the best single gear juicer out of the 4 cold press juicers and 8 centrifugal juicers tested. The Hippocrates twin gear juicer was voted the best juicer in Australia with the maximum extraction of nutrients of any juicer. The gentle, slow-turning action of a cold press juicer produces a greater quantity of juice, which retains more vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytonutrients and fibre than high-speed centrifugal juicers which heat up the juice, allow air to enter and therefore cause damage to some of the perishable nutrients.

Less oxidation

Hugh comes from a family that was in the fruit processing industry for 32 years and he has also worked extensively as a health foods retailer.

Choice... Health Claims Tested

NonCentrifugal Centrifugal Juicers Juicers

The apple juice from the centrifugal juicers separated & went brown a few minutes after juicing The Greenpower Hippocrates & the Oscar Vital Max scored the highest at 90% on performance The Greenpower Hippocrates' juice contained well over double the betacarotene & alpha-carotene of the juice from every other juicer in the test Although the cold pressed juicers did produce more juice, the Healthstart Compact scored the lowest for the juice produced because its carrot juice was a little grainy & it produced a lower quantity All the centrifugal juicers have large, bulky parts that are hard to fit into a domestic sink for cleaning The juice from the noncentrifugal juicers didn't separate, smelt fresh & looked palatable & green after 48 hours in the fridge

Good Vibrations are here...

Many people are astounded by the improvements to their physical and mental health from using the Vitality 600. For our aging population especially, the mere task of light exercise can be difficult, but with this machine they receive the same benefits and more. "The Vitality 600 has been independently tested to show improvements in circulation" More active customers use the various vibration platforms in our range as an alternative or enhancement to their personal fitness regime. Vibration platforms get your whole body vibrating with a host of benefits. Research suggests that vibration technology may assist in cellulite reduction, stimulate circulation and lymph drainage, improve flexibility, stimulate metabolism and weight loss, strengthen bone tissue, reduce body fat and more... Furthermore, vibration technology may increase the production of regenerative and repair hormones and increase the basal metabolic rate. All this results in more strength, more speed, more stamina, rapid recovery of muscles and tissue and most importantly, increased flexibility, mobility and coordination. The "more is better" principle does not apply to vibration training. You look and feel fitter, but you do not have to train as intensively. The added advantage is improved training quality and effectiveness, so you can shorten your sessions and recover faster. Feel the human touch.... Due to overwhelming demand from our customers, we at Vitality 4 Life have secured the `Good Vibrations" Massage Chair. Italian design puts this chair in a category of its own, you not only get a great massage but it compliments your home as well. It was imperative that when we made the final decision on distributing this Massage Chair, it had to comply with our strict quality standards.

Did you know the average Australian spends approximately 80% of their time indoors? Air pollution is thought to be a problem related to outdoor air, but the same pollutants can be found inside the home. Pollutants from different sources escape into the indoor air environment, creating a "chemical cocktail" in the home. Research suggests long periods of exposure to this type of toxic environment can contribute to a large range of health problems. Air pollution is a build up of dust particles, pet hair, seasonal allergens, building and furnishing materials,

cleaning products, perfumes, plastic packaging & carbon emissions. Diet related illnesses are on the increase all over the world due largely to the increase in the consumption of over-processed foods which are more readily available than ever before with clever marketing tricks deeming processed foods to be "healthy & packed full of goodness". "Your physical health is directly affected by your dental health." Don't underestimate the adverse effects of neglected gums and teeth on your overall wellbeing!

Chlorine and synthetic chemicals such as THMs and VOCs vaporize from tap water and are inhaled or absorbed through the skin, potentially causing adverse health effects. Stress is a normal part of life, however it's on the increase as we fit more responsibilities into each day. Research has shown that exercise can play an important role not only in weight control but also in reducing many other health problems such as heart disease and some forms of arthritis. As we become more aware of our impact on the environment, gardening becomes a great way to reconnect with nature and teach our children how to care for our planet.

Reducing your Carbon Footprint

A Carbon footprint refers to not just the carbon produced by a person. It also includes the carbon that's released by everything they might use in order to live their lives such as the energy consumed to manufacture, store and transport food & material possessions and then to dispose of it!

Did You Know?

Buying locally produced food is great because: the goods usually aren't packaged or packaging is greatly reduced they didn't have to travel far they haven't been in long term storage they are less likely to decompose before they are consumed they are fresher & simpler which means healthier for you

3Composting is good for the planet

You can save 1,200 kg's of carbon dioxide per year by recycling just half of your kitchen waste. If you're not going to use your compost for growing veges, it's a great place to dispose of your dog poo, where it will decompose quickly instead of releasing carbon into the air. Alternatively, doggy droppings can be buried where food plants and sensitive natives will not be grown.

Ok, so there are some things you just won't give up... like shopping? We can reduce our carbon footprint by making sensible buying decisions which helps our wallet in the long run too!

Look for appliances that are energy efficient and repairable, rather than "throw away" items Choose furniture that is made from eco-friendly materials When buying gifts, look for things that will last or are biodegradable Say no to plastic bags by bringing your own shopping bag

3getting fit can reduce your

carbon footprint

As our lives get busier, we are on average 40% less active than previous generations. Increases in the distance travelled to and from work each day, after school activities may be fun for the kids, but the parents are often just scurrying from place to place. The computer age plays a part as well and as a result, we are facing an increase in health problems worldwide. Even just a brisk walk or bike ride to your local park or shops on a regular basis will increase your cardiovascular activity, help reduce your stress levels and improve your sense of wellbeing and it's good for the planet too!

3Local fresh foods are good for

you & the planet

Transporting food for thousands of kilometers leaves an enormous carbon footprint behind. So, local food is the way to go. Buying locally produced fresh foods are not only good for the planet, but for your health as well. If you're lucky enough to have a local supply, then do the planet and your health a favour. You will probably find some industrious locals in your area making delicious chutneys, jams, muesli's and dips. They'll be fresher and the packaging will be less for sure!

Which water is right for you?

There are many different types of water filtration available to consumers nowadays which raises the question, how do you know which water is right for you? `Standard' Water Filters come in two types; pitchers & carafe-style filters and carbon block & granular carbon filters. In recent years, pitchers & carafe-style filters have emerged as lowcost alternatives to tap water and bottled water and although they do offer a slightly improved alternative to tap water, they have very limited effectiveness and a low capacity. Carbon Block and Granular Carbon Filters are the most common styles of countertop and under-the-sink systems (point of use). Granular carbon filters and carbon block systems use the same process of contaminant removal, adsorption, by which the contaminant bonds chemically or physically to the surface of the filter medium. Activated carbon is recognized by the U.S. EPA as the best available technology for filtering VOCs and THMs, but for best performance it is essential that a multi stage process be used to filter out a wider range of contaminants. benefits, however, their respective uses could not be more different... · Alkaline ionised water is used for drinking and demonstrates strong antioxidant effects on the body. · Acidic ionised water is used externally and can kill many types of bacteria including E.coli. Naturopaths use and recommend ionised water to help propel the body into an alkaline state as it's believed that many life threatening illnesses within the body can only survive in an acidic environment. This theory is supported by the fact that the areas where people live the longest, most disease free lives are the areas that have the most alkaline water; water with the highest mineral content. Distilled Water combines steam distillation and coconut shell carbon filtration, resulting in the removal of all fluoride and 99.8% of impurities from the water. A water distiller is essentially a `mother nature' machine producing `newborn' water; that is pure, organic water that's brand new, replicating the water found in raw fruits & vegetables. Due to the newness of the distilled water particle, it has the inherent ability to act like a magnet. As it travels through the body, it attaches to and draws out toxins, passing them out through the body, assisting in the detoxification process.

The Easy Guide to Natural Cleaning

Household cleaning with natural alternatives is a way to clean your home safely ­ producing less waste and reducing the need for harmful chemicals.

All these ingredients can be bought inexpensively from your local supermarket. CARPET CLEANER Sprinkle bicarbonate of soda on carpet before vacuuming to deodorise. It's also a great stain remover. Just brush up and vacuum when dry. WOODEN FLOORS Add some Methylated Spirits and a few drops of eucalyptus oil to a bucket of warm water for mopping. This mixture helps prevent fleas. AIR FRESHENER Add a few drops of your favourite essential oils to a spray water bottle. Antibacterial Essential Oils such as Eucalytus, Lavender and Tea Tree Oil add freshness to toilet bowls.

Vitality 4 Life offers a wide range of quality water filtration products to suit individual needs...

The Aquasana System is a multi-media block filter which features all the benefits of activated carbon with several added advantages. A blended media is extruded or compressed into a solid form with a sub-micron pore structure to filter out sediment and cysts like Cryptosporidium and Giardia. This configuration prevents water from channelling around the filter media.

The ion exchange removes contaminants such as lead that carbon will not remove. It is this additional stage that provides higher quality water, and also enhances pH by adding potassium ions to the water. In addition to being a carbon and ion-exchange filter, it is also a mechanical filter down to .5 microns. Ionised Water Ionised Water is electronically enhanced water that has been run over positive and negative electrodes to become ionised. Both alkaline & acid waters have extraordinary properties and

Dr Norman Walker

Was a great advocate of distilled water and a living testament of his beliefs. Dr Walker considered distilled water to be ideal for anyone undertaking a detoxifying or a raw food diet: "Distilled water has the inherent ability to work much like a magnet. It can pick up rejected and discarded minerals and then with the assistance of the blood and lymphatic stream, transport them to the kidneys for elimination from the system. Inorganic minerals rejected by the cells and tissues of the body can, if not evacuated, cause arterial obstructions and even more serious damage. These are minerals which must be removed and which Distilled Water is able to collect."

SUFACE & CERAMIC CLEANER Use bicarbonate of soda on a damp cloth to clean benchtops, sinks and your refrigerator or freezer surfaces. Store in a flour shaker to keep it dry. Make a paste from borax & water or lemon juice with a few drops of tea tree LAUNDRY A mixture of pure soap, lemon juice & oil for cleaning non-septic toilet bowls, tiles & washing soda removes stains and softens water so you need less detergent. baths. WINDOW CLEANER Add half a cup of vinegar to a litre of warm water. Wash the window first with warm soapy water if especially dirty. Use crumpled newspaper moistened with vinegar to get a beautiful sheen. For mirrors, apply eucalyptus oil with a wad of newspaper to prevent fogging. PEST CONTROL Borax can be used to control pests such as ants and cockroaches. Diluted Eucalytus Oil wiped on surfaces prevents spiders making webs. Hydrated lime sprinkled on the garden changes the pH so fleas can't breed!
