Nancy Barnett Enzymedica Eastern Regional Sales Manager WebWhen Nancy was backpacking in Denali National Park in Alaska, perhaps she pondered one day returning to Florida to manage Enzymedica’s eastern regional sales team. Maybe her love of plants, and developing herb and vegetable exhibits at Atlanta Botanic gardens help prepare her for our dynamic products. Whatever the reasons, or paths to get here, we are pleased to welcome Nancy Barnett to the Enzymedica family.

Nancy brings a diverse educational and extensive sales and sales management background to Enzymedica. Her experience with integrative medicines and pharmaceutical sales provides a vast understanding of our industry and customers. She has even worked with some of our sales reps in former positions. Her hope for our industry is to become more and more mainstream and not ‘alternative.’

Becky Lee - Enzymedica Customer CareBecky Lee

Enzymedica Customer Care

 

Weekend Headbanger – Weekday Helpmate

To look at Becky Lee, you’d never suspect this heavy-metal loving, aspiring snowboarder, dreamt of being a Victorian era teacher. “You know…before cell phones, computers and those pretty clothes,” she says. But, if she were stuck on a desert island, she’d want her Bible, matches and her husband, Bill, because “he’s tall and can reach stuff (coconuts?) and, he’s handy.” Bill also works at Enzymedica, in the bottling department.

Becky joined customer care in November of 2013, following in sister, Carol’s footsteps. She loves the “clean, comfy, spacious, good feel of our building. It goes hand-in-hand with the growing, friendly and caring work environment.” Working in a LEED certified facility that has its own solar power plant is just another perk.

“Nature is the ultimate multi-tasker, achieving countless ends with a single action. Humans by contrast, are the only creatures who consciously isolate nutrients, actually believing that a single compound extracted from its natural element is better than the whole complex from which it originated. 

“Vitamins,” are in fact biological processes that occur when the right balance of nutrients is present in the body. Think of every vitamin as a jigsaw puzzle… Ascorbic acid, which most supplement companies fatuously label “Vitamin C” is at best, one piece of the actual biological process (jigsaw puzzle) known as “Vitamin C”. Taking ascorbic acid and expecting it to perform like real vitamin C is like ripping the steering wheel off your car, and actually expecting that amputated steering wheel to still get you where you need to go… ridiculous!

Enzymedica is so happy to have Ashley Whetung as one of our newest ambassadors. Let’s learn a little more about her, below!

1. What is your best kept work out secret?

I mix up my gym training between periods of heavy training and higher reps. That way I don't tire out my central nervous system, and I keep my body working hard without getting used to my sessions. For cardio, I go for walks with my dogs or play lacrosse. I would rather have fun than stare at myself on a treadmill or bike. If need be, I put a stationary bike in front of the TV and watch a lacrosse game or skiing, and pretend I'm part of the action.

Season of overeating: occasional gas and bloating* by Justin Bohager

Season of overeating: occasional gas and bloating*

Large meals are hard to avoid, especially around holidays and special events. Surrounded by our families and friends, it may feel nearly impossible to say no to seconds or thirds. The food may be delicious, but the digestive discomfort, followed by occasional gas and bloating, is less than desirable and all too common. In fact, digestive distress has been reported to affect over 95 million Americans.i

Why is it that we experience distress after we overeat? The answer may be found, not only in the content of our meal, but also in the size of the meal we consumed. When we overeat, maybe after going back for second or third helpings, the sheer size of the meal may overfill our stomach and cause it to stretch. Similar to a balloon that’s been filled with too much air; our stomach (when overfilled) may grow larger and stretch thinner than normal.

Now, our stomach acid cannot cover and break down the food in the stomach as fast as it normally could.

Fun Enzymedica mention on late night podcast

Between moving out of my parents house and getting married, I lived on my own for around 9 months. I didn't have roommates, I didn't have cable, I didn't have wifi. It was just me, alone, learning how to provide for and take care of myself. A trial run of adult hood. Now, I wasn't just sitting in the center of an empty house listening to the echoes of my own voice. For one, my brother gave me an xbox as a gift. And two, I discovered the wonder of podcasts.
