Detox after the Holidays

I hope all of my readers had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Holidays are a great time to get together with friends and family to eat, drink and be merry!! But sometimes there is the tendency to over eat and drink and then we pay the price after the fact.

Zeoforce is a fabulous daily detox for your body!! You don't even need a Holiday to begin!

Zeoforce is a deeply detoxifying and alkalizing diet supplement form Earth clay, (zeolite is formed when volcanic magna hits fresh or salt water.)
It holds a negative charge and can bond with toxins for safe and effective removal of toxins. It removes toxins such as:
heavy metals
harmful chemicals
environmental substances
All of these things are in the food we eat, water we drink and air we breathe. Toxins in our intestines are one of the main causes of disease and sickness in our society.
Metals are in fish, ammonia is in meat. Chemicals are in processed food and all kinds of beverages.

Toxins in the body are substances and chemicals that aren't normally found in or used by the body for its systems and functions. These "poisons" slowly eat away at your health, destroying vital organs, cellular tissues, and can cause a variety of cancers, illnesses, and diseases if they are not dealt with properly.

So this is an easy way to help your body detox. I use the powder form and mix 2 teaspoons in a glass of water, it is virtually tasteless. Or they sell it in capsule form. I get mine from Amazon because it's much cheaper.

The benefits increase with usage.

I love this product!! I try to remember to use it every day-but sometimes it's every other day. I always take it in the evening, so it works on by body while I sleep.

I see the difference it makes in my skin every time I use it! You look better and feel better when you're body is getting rid of the toxins in your body!

You can also use it for a face mask or add it to your bath for a detoxing bath!!

Check it out and see what you think!!

Until next time,

Clay Masks

Sorry that I haven't posted in a week. I have been out of town on work and haven't had a chance to post.

Here are a couple of face masks that I use from 
I try to do one once a week. I love the way they make your skin look, besides all the great things they so for you.  I usually put one on when I have time to take a long bath. I not only put it on my face, but on my neck, chest and shoulders, and then rinse it all off in the shower.
If you are interested, check out their site. They have so many wonderful products. Here is what they have to say about their French Green Clay.

Our French Green Clay has enormous absorbent powers due to the constitution of its micro molecules. It literally "drinks" oils, toxic substances, and impurities from your skin. Its toning action stimulates the skin by bringing fresh blood to damaged skin cells, revitalizing the complexion, and tightening pores. French Green Clay is marvelous for helping to clear problem skin. Use it daily on trouble spots, or weekly as part of a complete facial treatment. Mined from bedrock quarries in France, it is completely natural, unscented and fragrance free.

I also use this one also.
Rhassoul Clay
A truly exquisite Spa quality clay from ancient deposits unearthed from the fertile Atlas mountains of Morocco. Rhassoul is a mineral rich clay that blends extremely well with water making its application to the face and skin a smooth and delightful experience.
The best Spas across the globe utilize the toning and enriching benefits offered by Rhassoul and now it's just as easy to enjoy this splendor within your own home. High in Silica, Magnesium, Iron, Calcium, Potassium and Sodium content, this clay is surely one of the finest treasures for the pampering of your skin.

Check it out and see what you think. Great product, great price, great results!!

Here is my granddaughter Eden.  Last time she came we did a mask together!

Until next time,

Last week my daughter in law Megan of sent me a message and asked me about this article she saw at Mail Online. The article was about celebrities that take the supplement astaxanthin. I thought that I would share part of it since I had just written a blog about astaxanthin.

Here is what Mail Online is saying:

"It is dubbed the "extended life pill" and counts fans including Gwyneth Paltrow and Heidi Klum.
The powerful antioxidant is the ultimate supplement that promises to "fight wrinkles and improve skin elasticity.
Trials showed Astaxanthin to reduce visible signs of UV-aging through dietary supplementation within four to six weeks of use.
The completely natural pill, that uses no chemicals, preservatives, synthetic sweeteners or flavour enhancers, also boosts the immune system and improves join and muscle pain.
Astaxanthin belongs to the family of carotenoids, known to most as the pink color of salmon.
Salmon accumulate a very high level of Astaxanthin from their diet, which helps protect them from the free radical damage caused by the environment and the  physical stress caused by swimming upstream for spawning."

If you need more information on Astaxanthin check out my blog post that I put up a few weeks ago!

Also, I talked about raw protein powders in my blog post on "My daily routine". I have decided that the protein powder that I am going with after trying out The Raw Code, and Healthforce brand is  Healthforce.  I ordered Healthforce from Amazon because it is $30.00 cheaper than Whole Foods. Also I got the plain instead of the vanilla because I heard that the vanilla was very sweet. So whatever is your preference. Here is a link just in case you are interested in reading about it or purchasing it!

Check these products out and see what you think! I believe that it really takes about 30 days to really see the results of the Astaxanthin, but it is definitely worth the wait!

African Mango

                                                                   Before African Mango

Okay, so I got the nerve to put up the picture of me from this August before I decided....I do believe it's time to do something before this gets too far out of hand. You might did you put on an extra 25-30 lbs???
To be honest it wasn't that hard. I call it "Party till you're fat"!!
I was eating fabulous raw vegan food, but I was also drinking wine (and clearly martini's, I see the glass sitting on the table!!) and I was not exercising!!!
Also, I don't know if this has anything to with it but I will be 56 in two months-so I used that statement to tell myself, you are getting older, your metabolism is slowing down, you're not in your 20's or 30's, it's okay!! Well that is so not true, because I see a lot of people in their 50's, 60's and on up that are in great physical shape and not overweight.
So I took charge!! One thing I decided to do besides start running, working out with kettle bells, yoga and detoxing is begin taking African Mango.
Afican Mango is an exotic fruit from West Africa. They take the seeds and crush them into a powder and put them in a capsule. Here are the 4 things that it claims to do:

1) Increase your Metabolic Rate
2) Reduce and surpress your appetite
3) Increase Energy Levels
4) Target Belly Fat

In the 2 and 1/2 months that I have been taking this supplement, I will have to say that for myself it does all that it claims. I do believe that proper diet and exercise are also a contributing factor to the 20 lb weight loss so far.

After taking African Mango

Here are a couple of brands that I have purchased through Amazon-I usually take 3 a day-but I stop taking them at 2 in the afternoon.

Check it out for yourself, there is a lot of information out there about it.

Until next time,

P.S.  Wishing my husband a Happy Birthday today!!! He turned the big 5 0!!!!
