Jan Stern’s arthritis has improved so much that she’s cleared room in her life to make art again, thanks to Kare’s Micronized Purple Rice (MPR)!

In addition to her arthritis improving, Jan, 65, has experienced many other health benefits since starting on MPR back in August 2015, she says.

“I first learned about it from Helen Harvey,” Jan remembers fondly.

“Helen and Kare have been friends of mine for years. Kare and I first got to know each other through various art classes here in the St. Petersburg area.”


“I had a hysterectomy last summer,” Jan says, “and Helen offered her home to take care of me afterward. She’s a great cook, so I took her up on it. Well, the whole time, she couldn’t stop talking about Micronized Purple Rice!”

“Helen had been suffering from chronic pain and fibromyalgia for many years,” Jan says, “but now she was feeling a lot better and was working full time as a health coach with Kare — yet she seemed to have energy to spare. I thought, WHAT!? How can that be? She was so fatigued before!”

“With Helen feeling so well,” Jan says, “I thought, hmmm… I should try this. So two days after my surgery, I started on it.”


“After having abdominal surgery,” Jan says, “it’s difficult to get out of bed without using the stomach muscles. And I’ve had painful arthritis in my knees from skiing and playing tennis 40 years ago, and I dreaded needing to use them after my surgery.”

“Well, within two weeks the arthritis pain went away,” Jan says. “Later it flared up again, but by then, so many other things had gotten better that it didn’t bother me. And today it’s completely gone!”

“Before my surgery I had resisted starting on MPR,” Jan says. “I knew about it months before starting, but it took my having a hysterectomy to convince me to take the plunge — and I am SO glad I did.”

Jan learned how this powerful food can fuel the body, giving it more energy to repair and regenerate, and that it takes 60 pounds of rare, heirloom purple rice from Thailand to make just one pound of powerful MPR powder.

The most nutritious part of the purple rice grains is extracted and milled so fine that its concentrated nutrients can be absorbed through the cell membrane, where they can fuel our mitochondria (cellular batteries), which then produce ATP, or pure light energy.

“I also stopped having leg cramps at night and foot and toe cramps by day,” says Jan, “and after two to three months the plantar fasciitis in my feet stopped hurting.”


Jan has lost some weight, too, she adds. “When people ask me if MPR is a weight-loss product,” she says, “I tell them no, but in my case it sure has put a stop to my sugar cravings. I used to eat ice cream a lot, and I’ve always been addicted to carbs. One day, I just didn’t want them anymore. Someone asked me if I wanted a macaroon (which I love), and I said, nope.”

Her sleep is another thing that has improved, Jan adds. “As a result of childhood trauma,” she explains, “I’ve always had insomnia. I still take a sleep aid, but now I don’t need as much.  I no longer wake up for no reason, and when I get up to go to the bathroom, I go right back to sleep. It’s a big difference, getting a full night’s sleep every night. Considering that we heal when we sleep, that’s huge!”

“Oh, and my hair!” Jan exclaims. “My hair is very fine, and it was falling out. I used to have to gather it up and put it in the garbage. But now I have maybe three to five hairs in my brush instead of a bunch.”

“My hairdresser has noticed that it’s coming in darker, too!” she adds. “I never would have noticed that the gray hair under my auburn, for which I pay, is now coming in browner. It was never fully gray, but now it’s about 25 percent browner.” “The real miracle would be if it came in auburn!” she laughs.

“Now I’m a Health Coach for Kare’s Purple Rice,” Jan says, “and I couldn’t be happier! I love making a difference in people’s lives, and it’s very satisfying to follow their progress as they improve their health.”
