A cure for your chocolate addiction? Eat Chocolate!

Did you know that eating chocolate can actually help you reduce your craving for sweets and LOSE belly fat? 

organic dark chocolateThe right kind of chocolate contains a special compound called theobromine, a wonderful compound shown to have some unique fat loss properties. It actually helps with appetite control and suppression! So you’ll likely find you crave less sweets and aren’t as hungry just by eating a square or two… two pretty solid benefits if you have a sweet tooth or not!

Moreover, theobromine has also been shown to mobilize fatty acids from fat cells to the blood stream to be burned as energy – just like caffeine – but without the stimulatory effect on the nervous system and those nasty “jittery” feelings that some people experience with caffeine.

And perhaps the biggest benefit of theobromine was discovered in a study published in The Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2005 where researchers found significant insulin sensitivity benefits associated with the naturally occurring theobromine found in high cacao dark chocolate.

Now, before you run out to grab a bar of your favourite childhood chocolate bar, stop!

I’m not talking about your typical convenience store chocolate bar here…you must look for dark chocolate that is at least 70%+ cacao (check the label). You see, dark chocolate that is more than 70% cacao is where you will find that wonderful theobromine.

daughter and grandchildrenOne of the sweetest – pardon the pun – things about this news is there are so many easy and delicious ways to introduce the right chocolate into your diet! My husband and I have just enjoyed a few days soaking up all the love with our youngest daughter and her family. We all live such full lives – but I’m big on keeping our emotional tank well fueled and I know that keeping a balance between family and work is hugely important.

But that doesn’t mean there wasn’t some time for chocolate! One of my favourite no-fuss ways of enjoying some high cocoa dark chocolate is to share it with some loved ones – simply to grab a bar of raw organic chocolate, break into squares, and serve with some organic nuts, dried fruit, herbal tea – and a whole lot of love!

I nearly always have a block of chocolate in our fridge and love to indulge whenever my taste buds say so. Next time you’re in the mood for a little something sweet, grab a square of dark chocolate – and don’t feel guilty!!

Raw Organic Cacao is another great way to get the bountiful benefits of theobromine and you can get that good old chocolatey deliciousness into your diet guilt-free, just good old chocolatey deliciousness!

Raw organic cacao has:

  1. healthy chocolate40 Times the Antioxidants of Blueberries
  2. Full of Magnesium for a Healthy Heart & Brain
  3. Highest Plant-Based Source of Iron
  4. More Calcium than Cow’s Milk
  5. A Natural Mood Elevator and Anti-Depressant
  6. Organic Cacao is also one of the ingredients in CELL Infuse Super Greens
  7. There are unique Fat Loss Properties in Cacao

For me cacao is not a special occasion treat because I like to look after myself every day. In my protein smoothie each morning I blend mineralized water, organic oat or coconut milk, protein powder along with a little alkalized cacao, half banana, berries, a little coconut oil and flaxseed. I like to mix up the variety with a little acai powder, nuts or camu camu.

These Cacao Balls are another very simple way to get some raw cacao into your diet.

Cacao & Date Bliss Balls1 cup pitted Medjool dates
1/4 cup raw cacao
1/2 cup organic shredded coconut, plus extra for rolling.
1 cup raw walnuts
1 spoonful Organic coconut oil (optional)

Toss these ingredients in to a food processor and whizz until mixture is like a dough then roll into small balls. Roll into the coconut and store in fridge.

Just as important as chocolate, is always remembering to say thank-you, so thank you for your loyalty. One thing I really do enjoy doing is picking up the phone and hearing how you are going with the products. It’s so nice to hear how many of you are happy with the results that you are seeing with your skincare regime

So – Happy Wednesday to you – and enjoy that chocolate!

Choose Skincare That Nourishes Your Skin

Think about your skincare routine as “treating” your skin with our LifeCell Cream. Then “feeding” your skin with our CELL Infuse products to receive the maximum results, so when you look in the mirror a younger you will be looking back. When purchasing skincare products, it’s essential to read the labels on everything from soaps to moisturizers and deodorants. Ingredients shouldn’t read like the index to a chemistry textbook.

Avoid products with ingredients like parabens, triclosan, mineral oil, sodium laurel, phthalates, or toluene. Many of these are made from petroleum. They can disrupt your endocrine system. Some have been linked to cancer, liver or kidney disease, and respiratory failure.

gree-tea-bagsInstead, look for ingredients that sound like foods to nourish your skin.

Here are three foods that work beautifully as skincare both inside and outside.

Green Tea: Sip three cups of green tea a day for its antioxidant power and to help reduce skin cancer risks. To relieve puffy eyes, chill the damp tea bags in the refrigerator. Apply to closed eyes for 10-15 minutes.

pumpkin-for-skin-carePumpkin: Carotenoids give pumpkin its distinctive orange color and wrinkle-fighting antioxidants. Pumpkin’s powerful enzymes also deep clean and hydrate skin. Combine two cups canned pumpkin, ¼ cup plain yogurt, four tablespoons honey and one tablespoon pumpkin pie spice in your blender. Smooth some on your face. Leave it for 10 minutes, then rinse. Eat the rest for dessert.

pomegranatesPomegranate: This fruit can help you attain younger-looking skin, and it’s also loaded with antioxidants, vitamins K and C, potassium, copper, zinc and iron. Pomegranate can help to prevent premature skin aging and keep our complexions smooth and radiant.

And remember, organic ingredients are always better when you can find them.

Here is another thought!!

Could you eat your skin-care?  It needs to be that safe.

Did you know your skin is just like a sponge? Whatever you put on the outside inevitably ends up inside. Our skin is a two-way street. What starts out on your plate eventually shows up on your face. Drinking plenty of water and eating lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and healthy fats will help your body build fresh, glowing skin.

On the flipside, whatever you put on your skin makes its way to the rest of your body. Just as your body absorbs food from your gut, it also absorbs whatever you put on your skin.

That’s why you shouldn’t put anything on your face or body that you wouldn’t eat.

Here’s to being more beautiful on the inside and outside!!

Drink THIS First Thing in the Morning

This daily trick can help you improve your digestion and boost your metabolism & energy levels.

Detox Your Body You’re bombarded with toxins in today’s modern world… everywhere from the polluted air you breathe, the water you drink, the shampoos and other cosmetics that lather your body with chemicals, and of course, all of the chemical additives, pesticides, hormones, antibiotics and other harmful compounds in the food that you eat.

All of these TOXINS can have harmful effects on your body, harming your metabolism and hormones, impairing your digestive system, and zapping your energy levels. If I could tell you ONE thing that you could do each morning right as you wake up to help your body eliminate some of these toxins, improve your digestion, stimulate your metabolism, and BOOST your energy, would you do it? Of course you would… and it takes less than 1 minute!

Here’s the trick… I know many of you already do it, but perhaps great reminder re the benefits this one thing will do.

Lemon JuiceImmediately upon waking each day, squeeze about 1/2 to 1 full lemon (depending on size of the lemon) into an glass of warm or room temperature purified water. This is gentler on your body first thing in the morning compared to ice cold water. I’ve found that slicing the lemon into quarters before squeezing by hand is easier than squeezing halves. Drink this at least 10 minutes before eating any food for the day.

Make sure to use fresh organic lemons to make this drink, and not bottled lemon juice. You want to use organic lemons to avoid the pesticides that can accumulate.

According to a leading health publication, TheAlternativeDaily.com:

Lemon Slices

The health promoting benefits of lemons are powerful. For centuries, it has been known that lemons contain powerful antibacterial, antiviral and immune boosting components. We know that lemons are a great digestive aid and liver cleanser.

Lemons contain citric acid, magnesium, bioflavonoids, vitamin C, pectin, calcium and limonene, which supercharge our immunity so that the body can fight infection.

Lemons are considered one of the most alkalizing foods you can eat. This may seem untrue as they are acidic on their own. However, in the body, lemons are alkaline; the citric acid does not create acidity once it has been metabolized. The minerals in lemons are actually what helps to alkalize the blood. Most people are too acidic (from eating too much sugar and grains), and drinking warm lemon water helps reduce overall acidity, drawing uric acid from the joints. This reduces the pain and inflammation which many people feel. And the American Cancer Society recommends warm lemon water to encourage regular bowel movements.”

3 Major benefits of this morning drink to your body, health, and energy:

Boost Your Energy1. Improves your digestion:

Lemon juice helps your body improve digestion and stimulates bile production. Lemon juice can even be an aid for heartburn and indigestion.

2. Boosts your energy for the day:

Even just the scent of lemon juice has been shown to improve your mood and energy levels, and reduce anxiety. Plus the detoxifying effect and alkalizing effect of fresh organic lemon juice can improve your energy through the removal of toxins from your body.

3. Helps you to lose fat:

Improve Digestion And Lose Fat

Since lemon juice helps to improve your digestive system, aids in removal of toxins, and increases your energy levels, this all combines together to help you to lose body fat as well through improving your hormonal balance… Yet another reason to add warm lemon water to your daily morning routine!

That’s a pretty simple trick isn’t it?

Here’s to staying healthy and simply beautiful.!!

DMAE Firms and Tightens Your Face without Surgery or Injections.

Many people want to stop gravity from dragging down the skin. Now it has become easier with the use of a new miracle ingredient called Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE).

Dermatology researchers in Belgium asked 30 volunteers between 36 and 49 years old to test DMAE. In a double blind study each subject applied a gel with DMAE to half their face. On the other side they applied a placebo gel.

The results were very clear. The placebo had little or no effect. But the side of the face treated with DMAE showed firmer, tighter skin.

How does DMAE work?
It increases the water retention in your skin’s connective tissues. That additional water plumps up the surface of your skin and tightens it up.

But there’s a second way DMAE works. The same action that boosts your brain’s memory power also lifts sagging skin.

Dmae Cream Before And After

You see, DMAE helps produce acetylcholine. That’s a neurotransmitter. Its job is to send signals from your nerves to your muscles. Those signals get your brain firing.

But they also send a message to your face muscles to tighten up and stop sagging. And more muscle tone in your face naturally reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

DMAE also helps fade age or “liver” spots. Those brown spots are an accumulation of waste called lipofuscin. It’s left over when fatty acids don’t completely metabolize in our cells.

DMAE reduces the buildup of lipofuscin inside cells. It even flushes that brown waste out of skin cells. That’s how age spots fade away.

How can you put DMAE to work for you tightening skin, reducing wrinkles and fading age spots?

Easiest way to enhance DMAE is By using our No 1 product LIFE CELL All-in-one Treatment.

Another two Easy Ways to Boost Your DMAE Levels:


A great way to boost your DMAE levels is by eating more fish.
Sardines, anchovies, squid and salmon are all significant sources.

You can also find DMAE supplements at health food stores or online.

Studies have found doses up to 1600 mg per day are safe with no reports of side effects or drug interactions.
A suggestion would be taking 150 to 300mg per day.

Take DMAE with meals for the best absorption. You can even break open the capsules and mix it in fruit juices or smoothies in the morning to kick start your brain for the day

But if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, check with your doctor before taking DMAE.


Until next week, consider the above information, so you too can look in the mirror and see a new natural you looking back for Christmas.

Here’s to being simply beautiful!

Is Your Dinner Making You Sad?

Food Affects The Brain

We are what we think and eat! Does your skin reflect how you are feeling?

No matter what part of the planet you call home, you aren’t immune to depression. Over 350 million people of all ages and backgrounds suffer from depression globally. If you’ve ever dealt with it, you know how grim it can be. Your doctor is more than willing to help you… If you want a prescription for an antidepressant, that is.

But some drugs come with some serious health risks. They can cause chronic pain, loss of motor control, and sexual disorders. And they may not even work!

You are more in control of depression than you think. Case in point: The foods you ingest have a direct effect on your brain and mental health. We’re talking about carbohydrates. For many people, comfort food equals carbs. Loads of them.

While they give you a temporary feel-good wave of endorphins, an overload of carbohydrates harms your brain. Research proves it.

A study by Harvard University traced the eating habits of 43,000 women over 12 years. These women had no history of depression before the study. After 12 years, it was a different story. The women who ate processed grains like bread, pasta, and chips were 41 percent more likely to be diagnosed with depression.

These results don’t surprise us. It’s why we tell you to eat a Paleo-type diet and cut out the processed carbs.

You know that processed foods are junk. But it’s the carbohydrates that are the worst.

They raise your blood sugar and inflammation levels. That puts your brain at risk. Your brain functions best when you reduce blood sugar levels and inflammation. In fact, patients who receive treatment for chronic inflammation can relieve their depression symptoms by over 60 percent.

But this doesn’t mean that all carbs are evil.

food-affects-the-brain copy

It simply means where you get your carbs from will make an impact on more than just your waistline.
Eating clean sources of carbohydrates may actually keep you free of depression.

Miracle Oil From The Deep Sea

Deep Sea Miracle Oil Squalene

Today I want to share with you the amazing beauty benefits of a gift from the sharks.

Hundreds of years ago, the Japanese believed shark livers had miraculous powers.
Fishermen from the Izu Peninsula in Japan hunted for deep-sea sharks swimming 3,000 feet below the ocean surface.

They were after the oil in the sharks’ livers. They called it “Samedawa” meaning cure-all.
The Japanese thought this rare oil provided strength, energy, virility and overall good health.

It wasn’t just superstition. Oil from deep-sea sharks contains a unique unsaturated fat.
It’s called “squalene” because these sharks belong to the genus squalus.

Today studies prove squalene is indeed a miracle oil from the sea.

Squalene Oil

Squalene Quenches Your Skin’s Thirst

Squalene makes up a major part of the natural oils in your skin.
The highest levels are in areas with the most sebaceous glands.
That means the T-zone of your face – your forehead, nose and chin.
Your sebaceous glands secrete squalene. Here’s why you need it…

First, squalene is a natural moisturizer. It lubricates your skin’s surface, healing chapped or cracked skin and eczema.
It also helps revitalize damaged hair, dry scalp and brittle nails.

Next, it forms a protective barrier to your skin’s surface. That locks in moisture and prevents your skin from losing water.

Finally, squalene has powerful antioxidants. They accumulate in your skin protecting it from the sun’s UV radiation.
They also absorb free radicals and deactivate them. That helps prevent skin damage like age spots, fine lines and
wrinkles that give away your age.

Squalene Benefits

What can you do?

You produce lots of squalene when you’re young. But your levels start to decline around your mid 20s.
Not long after that you may notice dry skin, the first sign of aging.

How to Use Squalene To Reverse Signs of Aging

Shark liver oil is far and away the richest source of squalene. But we can also get it from food.
Good sources include olives, olive oil, palm oil, rice bran, and wheat germ.

But we don’t eat enough squalene-rich foods.
People on Mediterranean diets take in about 200-400 mg per day.
But in the some countries, we only get about 30 mg a day. That’s not enough.

Squalene Shark Liver Oil

Shark liver oil and squalene are now available in supplements.
Taking 500 mg per day is known to be safe and can assist in normalizing cholesterol levels,
along with giving all the above benefits I outlined above.

You’ll see it in sunscreens, hair products, face cleansers and anti-aging products.

But beware. Most products don’t add enough squalene.
To get the benefits, it should be among the first three ingredients listed.
So do become a smart buyer. Check your labels?

Have a great week!
