Luis Kasuga - General Director Nikken Latin America

Nicki Edgell
The following is extracted from an interview with the General Manager of Nikken Latin America, Luis Kasuga, first published at the Direct Marketing website www.businessforhome.org

He talks about how Nikken is enjoying unprecedented growth in Central and South America which will be cemented by the introduction of an integrated international website later this year.

25 Years of Nikken in South America


"This year we will celebrate our 25th Anniversary in style; in fact, our celebration in style already began with a very successful 2017. Our growth in sales and sign-ups was 40% and 52%, respectively.

"We have had a record-breaking year in moving-up-in-rank and in the number of high bonuses paid. In total, we closed 2017 with 90 new Platinum, 28 new Diamond and 14 new Royal Diamond consultants.

Nikken's New Compensation Plan


"Our new compensation plan is much easier to explain, results are achieved much more quickly, it’s more dynamic and more fun, while at the same time we ensure the integrity and sustainability which have always been our trademark.

Reaching New Generations


"Something that is very important and gives us great peace of mind and confidence is the number of both male and female millennials that moved up in rank. We had been trying to get the attention of new generations and I am sure we are attaining this goal through our compensation plan and our wellness home and office concept.

"Today, we are fortunate to have in our business four generations that together share the benefits of our products, the great potential of our Nikken business and the amazing challenge of continuing to invite more and more people to know, discover and achieve a balanced life based on our 5 Pillars of Health.

Nikken's New Products


"We know we still have a long way to go. We will travel this road led by the firm hand of our leaders from North America, Europe, and Latin America. We plan to introduce nutritional products based on natural super foods and products based on wellness technologies, as well as to enhance our incentives to make it even more attractive for people to join our business.

Digital Advancement


"We also plan to have a broader presence in the digital world. In fact, one of our biggest projects is to harmonize our IT platform worldwide. With this new foundation, we will very soon renew our projects to continue to expand our business to additional countries.

"During our Diamond Seminar in the Rainforest of Panama last November, Diamond and Royal Diamond Nikken consultants from several countries got together to unify the mission and the message they want to share with the world. This year they have undertaken an international agenda of activities in virtual platforms to share their vision and experience with thousands of people.

Kaizen Leadership Team Trip to Japan


"Meanwhile, on May 19th of this year we will be celebrating in Mexico City Nikken’s 25th anniversary in Latin America. Afterwards we will commemorate this anniversary by travelling to Japan with the winners of the 2017/2018 Kaizen contest.

"For us, to travel to Japan means learning about the roots of our company and its culture, its philosophy, and respect for nature. During this trip we will visit the city of Hiroshima, where we will present an offering of 1,000 origami cranes representing our wish to join in world peace during a ceremony at the Children’s Peace Monument."


Join The Team

17 Buenas Razones para Beber Agua Nikken

Nicki Edgell

Ahora es bien sabido y aceptado que la cantidad de agua que consume todos los días juega un papel importante en el mantenimiento de un cuerpo sano: los expertos recomiendan beber de 8 a 10 vasos (aproximadamente 2 litros) de agua por día para mantener una buena salud.

Esto tiene que ser agua pura. Los tés, los cafés, el agua carbonatada, las bebidas gaseosas y los jugos de fruta no cuentan: el cuerpo ve cualquier bebida como la comida y la trata de manera completamente diferente al agua. Además, muchos tienen un alto contenido de cafeína y azúcar, son ácidos y en realidad se deshidratan, por lo que se logra exactamente lo contrario de lo que pretendes hacer con el agua.

Pero no toda el agua es igual, ¿qué agua deberíamos beber? ¿El agua del grifo está demasiado llena de contaminantes? ¿El agua embotellada o mineral es una mejor alternativa? ¿O debería invertir en un sistema de filtración de agua en el hogar y, de ser así, de qué tipo?

El sistema de filtro de agua de la empresa de bienestar japonesa Nikken se inspira en las corrientes frescas de Japón, donde los beneficios del agua mineral de manantial, rica en minerales, se conocen desde hace siglos. Esta es la idea detrás de Nikken Pimag® Waterfall que busca recrear el agua pura natural de manantial en su hogar a un costo económico. Siga leyendo para descubrir 17 buenas razones por las que creemos que el agua de Nikken debería ser su agua potable preferida:
"El agua más saludable del planeta".

  1. El agua Nikken Pimag® es particularmente eficiente para hidratarte: los humanos generalmente deben estar compuestos de alrededor del 70% de agua (y más en el cerebro), pero el 75% de nosotros normalmente está deshidratado. Muchos síntomas de malestar son los mismos que los síntomas de la deshidratación y, en lugar de estar fundamentalmente enfermos, una persona puede estar deshidratada.
  2. El agua Nikken está energizada, estructurada y condicionada por un sistema magnético y de filtrado único que ayuda a su absorción por las células del cuerpo. Esto se demuestra por no sentir el agua pesada en su estómago como lo hace generalmente si toma un vaso de agua corriente. Esta absorción mejorada también significa que no se adelgazará como lo hace con el agua normal.
  3. El agua Nikken activa su mecanismo de sed que normalmente se suprime o se malinterpreta (a menudo como hambre). Mientras más agua Nikken bebas, ¡más quieres! Esto además ayuda a rehidratarte rápidamente. ¡Intentalo!
  4. Este estímulo para beber más y más agua no solo te rehidratará, sino que te llenará y satisfará tu "hambre", por lo que será muy útil como parte de una dieta de control de peso.
  5. El agua es alcalina con un pH de aprox. 8-9 (más embotellada, y Britta, el agua es ácida, menos que ph7, y la mayoría del agua del grifo es ph neutra, alrededor de ph7), las dietas ácidas pueden contribuir a muchos problemas de salud como la osteoporosis y la diabetes. El agua alcalina puede ayudar a contribuir a un mejor equilibrio corporal al contrarrestar el aumento de la acidez de nuestra dieta moderna.

    Ácido a alcalino: el pH (l a r) respectivamente del agua con sabor, el agua con gas, el agua embotellada y el Nikken Pimag

    1. El filtro multi-etapa todo en uno elimina los contaminantes típicamente presentes en el agua del grifo, que incluyen metales pesados, pesticidas y cloro. Dos tercios de flúor también se eliminan.
    2. La mayoría de los sistemas de filtración alternativos eliminan los buenos minerales y los malos dejando agua pura, limpia pero "muerta". El sistema Nikken agrega minerales esenciales como magnesio, potasio, calcio, manganeso y sodio.

      Una zanahoria después de 5 semanas sentado en Tap, Bottled y Nikken Pimag respectivamente, agua
    3. Muchos sistemas de filtración desperdician mucha agua, ¡muy perjudicial para el medioambiente y las facturas de agua! El filtro Nikken Pimag usa el 100% del agua del grifo.
    4. El filtro Nikken es un modelo de encimera: no se requieren plomería y el sistema es rápido y fácil de usar directamente desde la caja, con una superficie de trabajo pequeña. Por lo tanto, también es relativamente portátil y se puede mover por la cocina, la casa, la oficina o incluso durante las vacaciones.

      La cascada de Pimag: en la caja
    5. Nikken Waterfall es un sistema alimentado por gravedad con buenas tasas de flujo, mucho más rápido que muchas marcas alternativas. El tanque de 5 litros del sistema se rellenará en cuestión de minutos.
    6. El sistema tiene muy buenas tasas de reemplazo de filtros: el filtro durará 900 litros (para una familia de 4 personas que usa el sistema para todas sus necesidades de consumo y cocción, esto generalmente se traducirá en aproximadamente 3 meses).
    7. El agua Nikken está oxigenada y ionizada de forma natural (sin electrólisis artificial). El agua tiene propiedades antioxidantes, como lo demuestra una lectura mejorada del potencial de reducción de la oxidación, el ORP, sobre agua del grifo y agua embotellada.
    8. Los sistemas de agua Nikken utilizan plásticos biodegradables no lixiviantes sin BPA.
    9. Con US$419 para la unidad y US$27 por los filtros de repuesto, el sistema Nikken es una de las soluciones de filtración de agua doméstica más baratas del mercado. Los filtros de reemplazo funcionan a aproximadamente 4 c / litro en promedio, considerablemente más barato que comprar agua embotellada.
    10. El agua Nikken también puede obtenerse de cualquier grifo cuando está fuera de casa a través de la botella Nikken Pimag, excelente para viajar, incluidos los aeropuertos.
    11. El sistema ha sido probado y verificado por la Water Quality Association of America obteniendo la "Aprobación de Sello de Oro".
    12. Y por último, y por supuesto, ¡no menos importante, el agua aterciopelada tiene un sabor excelente! No disfrutará del agua del grifo después de probar el agua Nikken. ¡Ven a una demostración de Nikken cerca de ti y prueba un poco!
      La botella Nikken y la cascada
    Agua Nikken: la forma más fácil de mejorar de inmediato su salud y la de su familia.

    When Do We Need Calcium?

    Nicki Edgell
    Calcium is one of the most important minerals for the human body. It helps to form and maintain healthy teeth and bones. By maintaining a proper level of calcium in the body over a lifetime, we can help prevent osteoporosis. In addition, calcium is used throughout the body to help with blood clotting, sending and receiving nerve signals, flexing and relaxing muscles, releasing hormones and other chemicals and keeping a regular heartbeat.

    Calcium is the most abundant mineral found in the human body, but as we age, we absorb less and less calcium from our diets. This results in our bodies taking more from our bones, which can contribute to osteopenia or osteoporosis. How much calcium we need depends on age and gender. Adolescents, especially girls, postmenopausal women and the elderly often have a high risk of calcium deficiency.

    As we age we absorb less and less calcium from our diets.

    Recent research shows that a diet high in calcium and also high in protein and other essential nutrients can positively impact bone health by aiding in more calcium absorption. Most of these nutrients can be found in high-quality dairy products like organic whey protein, raw unpasteurized milk, organic goat cheese, and kefir. Other sources of calcium include green leafy vegetables, salmon and sardines, nuts, blackstrap molasses, tofu and calcium-fortified foods, such as orange juice, soy milk, cereals and seeds.

    Although the calcium found in dairy is considered the most readily absorbed, these foods are not eaten by many people, including vegans and those who are lactose intolerant. When dietary calcium is not sufficient, a supplement may be needed, and there are many kinds. Some of the common calcium supplements include Calcium carbonate, Calcium citrate, Calcium gluconate, and Calcium lactate. But however much we take of any supplement, if it cannot be assimilated by the digestive system and used by the body’s systems, it will not support an Active Wellness lifestyle.

    Nikken's Caldenx® stands out specifically for its high bioavailability. That means it is easily absorbed: The complex mimics the mineral composition of our bones. In addition to the calcium the supplement contains additional minerals and vitamins including K and D. Furthermore, the supplement is produced with sensitive filters that purify and separate out the calcium-rich minerals used in the formulation from the lactose and proteins, so that it may be tolerated by virtually everyone.

    Getting Paid Your Worth - 3 Big Secrets

    Nicki Edgell

    I am grateful to my colleague Caroline Rushworth for this guest post. Caroline can be contacted at her newly launched website www.carolinerushforth.com


    The topic of money is a sensitive subject which affects each of us in different ways, but the relationship we have with prosperity is down to something we all have in common: our deeply rooted beliefs and the relationship we have with ourselves.

    Throughout my coaching and training experience, I have witnessed both ends of the abundance spectrum. I have seen people persevere and succeed in reaching their goals and go on to be very successful in their business or chosen career. I have also seen many fall flat on their face, walking away feeling deflated and worthless. The good news is that we can all be successful – but there are just a few things you should be aware of first.


    Big Secret Number 1:
    You are to blame for the relationship you have with money


    When you think about your past, what stories do you tell yourself and others about your childhood and money? Do you tell people that you had abundance or scarcity? Perhaps you think about the times where there wasn’t enough food or perhaps your parents didn’t buy things for you. All of these experiences will have an impact on how you relate to money and success in the present day.

    When we were young we looked to our support network of family, friends and teachers as role
    models, gently absorbing their beliefs and values so we could form an identity. As we developed we began to have new experiences that were either harmonious to our growth or detrimental, causing us to form additional personal beliefs according to our experiences. A mixture of these beliefs and values form who we are today and they shape our attitude towards money as adults.

    Do any of these beliefs sound familiar?

    • I have to work hard to gain money
    • I don’t deserve to have money
    • Money causes pain and suffering
    • I never have enough money
    • I can’t afford to spend money
    • Money never comes to me
    • I always have bad luck with money
    • Wealthy people are lucky
    • I am not worthy of being wealthy
    • Money causes arguments
    • I must work in a job I dislike to have money

    These are referred to as ‘limiting beliefs’: they are beliefs that we hold close but they have a negative impact on our attitude towards money. Although these limiting beliefs can feel very real and true, they cause us to feel restricted in our relationship with prosperity. The same thing applies to any negative belief you have in your mind: the more negatively you perceive something, the harder it is to be flexible to opportunities for personal change.

    Your beliefs and values can change at any time, but it is down to you to transform them if you are to have a more balanced and harmonious relationship with money. We are constantly reminded that abundance and prosperity is relative to our state of mind, so if you feel that you lack or struggle to obtain money, then a bit of mind re-tuning may be in order.

    To learn more about your behaviours around money, take a piece of paper and some quiet time
    and write down your honest answers to the following questions:

    • Describe your spending habits. Are you an impulsive spender or a careful controller?
    • Do you look to material possessions to lift your mood?
    • How do you react to other people’s wealth?
    • Do you find yourself spewing venom at anyone who is financially better off?
    • How does it make you feel to receive money – from friends, family, clients or customers?
    • Do you feel any resistance to giving money out?
    • How does it feel when you pay your bills?
    • Would you say you are lucky or unlucky with money? Why do you think that?

    Many successful entrepreneurs know what it is to live a life of poverty. Some have come from homelessness or pulled themselves out of dysfunctional family situations. But their success hasn’t been down to simple luck; they changed their attitude and created a vision for themselves. An attitude shift can happen at any moment for anyone with the right mindset.

    Taking the above beliefs, you can get into a habit of changing a few words around so the beliefs no longer seem limiting. To show you how this works, here are the same old limiting beliefs reframed as empowering, positive beliefs:

    OLD LIMITING BELIEFS / NEW POSITIVE BELIEFS

    I have to work hard to gain money / I allow success into my life
    I don’t deserve to have money / I deserve to have money
    Money causes pain and suffering / Money creates happiness and joy
    I never have enough money / I can have enough money if I choose to
    I can’t afford to spend money / I can spend money wisely
    Money never comes to me / Money is OK for me to have
    I always have bad luck with money / I trust myself with money
    Wealthy people are lucky / It is OK for other people to have money
    I am not worthy of being wealthy / I am equal to anyone else
    Money causes arguments / Money allows me freedom and choice
    I must work in a job I dislike to have money / I can make money doing what I love

    A simple change in how you say things in your mind or out loud has a positive impact on your
    mindset. That way, you can allow the thought to come, but without the feelings of guilt that may
    have accompanied it before.

    Big Secret Number 2:
    You are worth it, you just don’t realise it yet


    If you want to be successful in your business or career, it’s not someone else’s job to create your success; it’s down to you. In addition, if you don’t believe in yourself or your product or service, why should anyone else? Whether you want to get more clients or climb the career ladder, it’s your responsibility to make it happen.

    Does any of this negative self-talk sound familiar to you?

    • I never get offered a pay rise
    • I don’t deserve money
    • They can’t afford to pay me
    • I’m not worth the money
    • They won’t like my product/service
    • My product is not good enough
    • I am not good enough
    • I feel guilty asking for payment
    • I am embarrassed to ask for more
    • I deserve more recognition

    If you added up all the time and money you’d spent on your own personal investment into your skills and knowledge and into creating your product or service, how many hours would it come to? This is something people tend to forget but it is highly relevant, whether you have your own business or you are working for someone else.

    Here are some reminders to help you feel more worthy of getting the financial reward you deserve:

    Your time is worth money
    Whether you have dedicated some of your life to self-development, university or employment to
    up-skill, remind yourself how much time throughout your life you have invested into cultivating a
    skill or expertise, and that you have created something of commercial value.

    Money is an energy exchange
    Sometimes we can complete an energy exchange by doing something else in return, but
    essentially money allows us to buy nice things and enjoy a more comfortable life. Each time
    we part with our money we are investing in someone else’s livelihood, and then they invest in
    someone else after that.

    It’s good practice to drill down and discover what having more money would do for you. Before
    he was famous, actor Jim Carey wrote himself a cheque for 10 Million Dollars for “services rendered”. He is now one of the wealthiest and most famous actors in the world! Decide on a figure of money you want to have and write down all the things you would spend the money on, so you can start to bring in the essence with your ideas.

    Ask for a pay rise
    All successful business owners are driven by similar values – such as money, success, achievement and leadership. Whether you work for someone who is a senior manager, director or even the CEO of a company, or you work directly for the business owner, they all have something in common: they make money for the business. Business drives the economy; it pays for our survival and gives us more freedom to do the things we want to do. Every business owner will want the best, highest performing people working for him.

    If this sounds like you, ask yourself: when was the last time you had a pay rise? Similarly, when
    was the last time you asked for a pay rise? Notice the difference in your neurology when you think
    about asking for money as opposed to having it offered to you. There are many ways you can be
    proactive in asking for a pay rise and successfully achieving it!

    Give your customers what they want
    An artist selling her artwork may feel that because she has a natural talent for something, she is not deserving of reasonable payment for her work. But if you were a passionate advocate of art and beautiful pictures made your house look nice and brought your family great happiness, how much would you be willing to pay for an amazing painting to grace your walls?

    Customers buy your product or service because it will benefit them in some way and it will turn a
    problem into a solution. They could be investing in themselves, giving a gift or helping to change the way they feel. They need and want what you have, so why keep it to yourself? Tell the world about your gift. Your skills and expertise are no use tucked away in a cupboard or stuffed to the back of your mind.


    Big Secret Number 3:
    Your own self-belief and confidence have an impact on your success


    For most people, the essence of success manifests itself in a feeling of self-love, self-esteem or self-worth. If you say to yourself “I am successful”, how does it feel? As you acknowledge your success it
    becomes easier to view yourself as successful. So, if you tend to lean more towards focusing on all the things you didn’t get right or where you made mistakes, you will view yourself as not good enough, or even as a failure.

    As you bring the feeling of success into your body more frequently, this feeling will draw further success to you in every area of your life. Appreciate where you are now and focus on how far you have come already in the amazing university of life! The more you acknowledge your success, the more you will build upon it.

    You can change your mindset
    The way you interact with your inner world and outer world makes a big difference to how
    success finds its way to you.

    Logic will get you from A to Z but imagination will get you everywhere.
    Albert Einstein 

    Your subconscious mind is a powerful driving machine. It has complete control over your behaviours, emotions and mindset and takes you towards more of what you think about. If you’re grumpy and constantly picking out the flaws in what isn’t working in your life, your subconscious mind will take that as your reality and bring you more of it. So, if you are a natural pessimist, perhaps it’s time to consider doing something differently. You may want to start by paying attention to your own personal navigation system, also known as your emotions. Learn to listen to your mind and body because when you tune in you will notice how much energy and enthusiasm you have for the day ahead. If you’re feeling flat and unfulfilled, your day will continue with the same energy output and attract it in. If you’re feeling broke and financially restricted, think about what you could do that enriches you that doesn’t cost anything, so you can get into a routine of changing your state of mind.

    One of the most effective things you can do is focus on what is working well for you and consider
    all the things you have already that many others don’t.

    Get into the gratitude habit
    The more gratitude you have, the more rooted and positive your body will feel, which has an
    impact on your mindset too. Ultimately, this all contributes to the energy of money coming in and
    out of your life.

    To get into the flow of bringing more abundance into your life, it’s useful to create a habit of
    reminding yourself about what you DO have already and why you are grateful. Then write out a
    daily or monthly list of the things you would like. Tune in and discover what essence having those
    things will bring you, then begin to behave in a way as though you already have it. To get you
    started, write down ten things you are grateful for today:

    10 things I am grateful for today are:
    1. _______________________________________________________
    2. _______________________________________________________
    3. _______________________________________________________
    4. _______________________________________________________
    5. _______________________________________________________
    6. _______________________________________________________
    7. _______________________________________________________
    8. _______________________________________________________
    9. _______________________________________________________
    10. ______________________________________________________


    6 things I would like this month are:
    _________________________________________________________
    _________________________________________________________
    _________________________________________________________
    _________________________________________________________
    _________________________________________________________

    Having these things will make me feel:
