The Nutrient Body Sculpt system was developed by the owner of an assisted care facility that catered to hospices. To heal a particularly bad decubitus ulcer for one of her patients, she created a natural compound. With the help of a biochemist, she developed a formula of micronutrients that worked to heal the ulcer when traditional medicine had failed. It was this part of the Nutrient Body Sculpt backstory that intrigued us since
it was in keeping with our Pura Vida philosophy. When Pura Vida Body
& Mind Spa was founded, we made a promise to ONLY provide the very best, healthy, safe, and evidence-based treatments for our guests. Every product we use or sell has been researched extensively before being offered to our Guests. So, it should come as no surprise that Pura Vida was the very first in Florida to offer a cutting-edge approach to vitamin and mineral delivery that also improves body contouring (inch loss).
WHAT ARE MICRONUTRIENTS?
Micronutrients are simply the vitamins and minerals which are required by our bodies to support normal metabolism, growth, and physical well-being. Most vitamins are organic, essential nutrients that cannot
be made by the body but are vital to sustain a healthy life. Minerals are inorganic nutrients including trace elements like copper, iodine, iron, manganese, selenium, potassium, sodium, and zinc. Although our bodies only require small quantities of micronutrients for optimal health, even when we eat a so-called well-balanced diet, it almost never contains a sufficient amount of micronutrients for optimal function.
BENEFITS OF MICRONUTRIENTS IN THE BODY
If you’re on social media, you no doubt find advertisements for all sorts of supplements in your newsfeed. Sure, companies have flocked to the vitamin industry due to its lucrative and unregulated nature, but it’s only lucrative because millions of people just like you want improved health, to live longer, and to be more active. But all supplements are not equal and many cannot offer the wellness benefits of natural, mined from the earth, micronutrients, antioxidants, and minerals. Nutrient Body Sculpt’s proprietary blend boasts all of the following benefits and more with the science to back it up. Here are the most common benefits:
• Regulating metabolism / Stable weight
• Antioxidant properties which reduce the cell damage caused by oxidative stress
• Regulation of hormones
• Reduction of chronic inflammation
• Reduction in the incidence of cancer
• Improvement in healing
• Lean tissue mass
• Lower body fat
• Reduced likelihood of diabetes
• Improved immune system
• Healthy cells (reduced oxidative stress)
• Improved eye health
CAN’T YOU JUST EAT RIGHT AND FOREGO SUPPLEMENTS?
Theoretically yes, you can get all that your body needs from food, but Americans just plain suck at eating. Don’t get me wrong, we Americans love to eat. The problem is, we eat terribly! The obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease epidemic is proof of that. I think most of us can admit that we don’t eat the daily dietary requirements as prescribed
by the Dietary Reference Intakes (DRI) which is 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day. This fact was proven in a clinical study of people aged 19-64 with results showing that only 13% of men and 15% of women met the five portions a day requirement.
OTHER CAUSES OF MICRONUTRIENT DEFICIENCY
If it isn’t bad enough that many of us don’t eat a varied and healthy diet regularly, many other things can reduce the amount of micronutrients in the body. For example, anything that causes impaired absorption
of micronutrients or when increased metabolism is needed, a drop in micronutrient levels can occur. How many of the below things apply to you?

Surgery or trauma;
Periods of weight gain;

HOW DOES PURA VIDA’S NUTRIENT BODY SCULPT HELP?
This just might be the most interesting part! Typically, to supplement the body we use pills or drinks or foods that are supposed to be packed with all the good things we need. But, here’s the real problem with that. Even if the supplement really has what it says
it has (which is often questionable), when your body is already impaired by any of the above things, the gut cannot properly process or absorb what you take in by mouth. Common sense, right? That’s where Pura Vida comes in. We give you all those amazing minerals and nutrients in a totally different way! Using a propriety wrapping process, we tightly wrap your body, from knee to head, with liquid micronutrient-soaked bandages. Once all wrapped up, you will stand on a vibration plate for 20 minutes. The vibration plate, according to Dr. Laskowski of the Mayo Clinic, provides the body with additional health benefits and aids in weight loss so it is a great compliment to your body sculpt treatment session. While you are wrapped and vibrating, your skin (which is the largest organ of the body) is absorbing all of the amazing nutrients that your body is lacking. This transdermal approach to vitamin supplementation bypasses your malfunctioning gut and allows a high level of absorption into your body’s tissue and organs where the nutrients are ultimately needed. As an added bonus, because unhealthy inflammation is reduced, most people will experience an immediate loss of 1-2 inches around the waist and other areas of the body with long-term inch loss with continued treatment. The body’s tissues will also be well hydrated (unlike wraps which dehydrate the body), creating a more firm and toned appearance.
