Guest Bio: Ray Doustdar, CEO Buiced INC
Ray Ray Doustdar is the CEO of BUICED Inc., and the creator of the all new BUICED Liquid Multivitamin, as well as the curator of Everyday Juicer, a website dedicated to helping people add fresh vegetable juicing to their daily lifestyle.

Through fresh vegetable juicing, Ray was able to bring down his cholesterol from 234 to 168 (down 28%) by incorporating juicing into his daily lifestyle.

During this time, he discovered that although the leafy greens are packed with phyto-nutrients, they lack many essential vitamins and minerals.

He tried taking vitamins in pill form after each juice, but they upset his stomach. Then Ray learned liquid vitamins are more readily available for easy absorption, so he decided to solve his own problem and created BUICED to "boost his juice."
Do You Know Your Vitamin ABC's?
You may have been told more than once that you need to be taking your vitamins.

Vitamins play a major role in keeping your body healthy on daily basis.

Do you know why?

Vitamins are micro-nutrients that help grow, repair and protect your body from oxidative damages. Your body does not produce vitamins naturally, and therefore they must be obtained through food or supplements.

Do you know which form is best to take?

When it comes to absorption of your nutrients, the quickest way to get them into your body is in a liquid form.

There are 13 essential vitamins that are needed every day to help your body function in a healthy way.

Do you know your vitamin ABC's?

Vitamin A promotes bone growth, vision, reproduction and your immune system.

Vitamin B (there are several kinds) is water soluble and essential for your metabolism.
