As good as 'Pure Gold'

Jodana Albers is a blur as she pours powders and liquids together before blending, icing and sealing a remarkably healthy fast food before your eyes.

Albers was familiar with the health benefits of nutritious drinks back in her days as a Wadena-Deer Creek high schooler and is doing her best these days to let people know that healthy food doesn't have to be slow or burdensome. And it can be found right here in Wadena.

She recalls making regular trips to a nutrition club in Wadena before it closed about five years ago. Pure Gold Nutrition was opened in 2017 by Holly Middendorf and in June 2018, Albers took over the helm, bent on making you healthier. Her entrepreneurial spirit stems from her parents Garth and Peggy Albers, who run their own business, Albers Realty in Wadena.

"This has definitely been my best personal business as far as personal coaching," Albers said.

Jodana can attest to the weight loss potential of her products, which are powered by Herbalife Nutrition supplements. She recently lost 27 pounds using the product. Weight loss may not be the first thing you think of looking over the selection of 30-plus shakes. They include such words as donuts, cookies, cheesecake, muffin, pie—all synonymous with growing out love handles. Cake batter is probably the most popular, Albers said.

Instead of fat gain, the shakes give the flavor you like in a well-balanced, low calorie meal-in-a-glass. But Albers notes that these shakes are not just for weight loss. With the right adjustments these supplements can be used to gain muscle mass, too. All drinks are less than 250 calories and include 24 grams of protein.

"We also offer personalized coaching whether for gaining muscle, lose weight or gaining energy," Albers said.
