Power Quotes From The Show

Common Nutrient Deficiencies in the USA

"Around 60% of Americans are not meeting their daily magnesium intake and it is 70% for calcium. Please be mindful of what you are eating. As well as counting calories, if you are doing that, try to count nutrients as well because as humans are living longer, we need to take better care of ourselves. Many of us will easily live to be 90 years old or older if we continue to take good care of our health. It's important that we have good health as we get older so that we're not in bad shape, barely walking, and suffering for decades. These nutrient deficiencies are really, really important and we need to keep an eye on them on a regular basis."  - Miray Tayfun

Vivoo's Positive Encouragement for Lifestyle Change

"I want people to be encouraged by their Vivoo results. If their results are above average, instead of panicking, I want them to see it as an opportunity to make a change to improve their results. The language we use on the app is not rigid but friendly because we don't want to make people feel sad or punished if they're not hydrated but rather encouraged. People don't tend to have a serious lack of information about how to improve their health but they have a lack of motivation and we want to help them with that. A health product and app should be supportive, not make you feel bad." - Miray Tayfun

Living Life Well Every Day

"For me, wellness is listening to your body's voice; listening to your mind's voice. Give it your full attention every day. Wellness is a whole but if one area of it is suffering, it's not the end of the world. You just have to take extra care. Maybe your body needs you to focus on nutrition or hydration more than usual some days. In moments of high stress when your heart is racing, remember to breathe. If you focus on doing something for your health every single day, then your whole body will remain strong." - Miray Tayfun
