THE BENEFITS OF WORKING FROM HOME

Many of us dream of working from home. Some of us may not, but for those that do, they may be catching onto something. There are countless benefits to working from home and we have compiled a list of how working from home can contribute to the perfect lifestyle.


Sleep

First things first, you can enjoy that desirable morning lie in. Sleep is essential to you being able to function throughout the day. Sleep deprivation can have a huge range of effects that can be detrimental to both your physical and mental health. You are recommended to have between 7 and 9 hours sleep a night which can be dependant on each person to be able to have optimal functionality.


Exercise

By getting that extra bit of sleep and not having to travel to and from work, you’ll be sure to feel more motivated to work. However, we all want to look as good as we feel too. Instead of spending time commuting, you are able to go out for a run or head over to the gym in your spare time. Adding this exercise to your daily routine will improve your physical appearance, as well as your mental state too, keeping you more focused for work.


Social Life

You may think that working from home may sound antisocial. But having this flexibility actually allows you to become more social, with both friends and work colleagues. You will be able to work on your own time and catch up with co-workers in the day and never miss out on a special occasion again. Working in network marketing itself is very social because you are always meeting new people wherever you go.


Snacking

One thing you will notice, is the lack of snacking when you leave the office environment. It is typical to find yourself grazing at your desk on snacks such as; biscuits, crisps, sweets and chocolate. By working from home, you will be able to make more conscious decisions on what you eat, without being surrounded by sugary treats. By implementing nutritionally rich foods to your diet throughout the day, you will find yourself being much more productive.

Brush Up On Nutrition

Good nutrition is the cornerstone of a healthy lifestyle. Whether we like to admit it or not, convenience eating is an unavoidable necessity. A trip to the drive-through on a busy day or ordering pizza after a long day of work is a concession even the healthiest among us can admit to making. For others, a vegetarian or vegan diet can leave nutritional gaps that need to be filled.

Nutritional supplements are a perfect solution in an unperfect world where, if we can’t always eat what we want, we can at least make sure our bodies are getting the vitamins and nutrients we need to feel alert, active and ready to face anything the day has in store!

Are you a little rusty on your nutrition basics? Don’t worry, we’ll take a quick look at some key points below to help you get back in the game.

The nutritional cornerstone: Diet

A balanced diet combined with plenty of water is the foundation of good nutrition. Water is like the oil in a car. It keeps your body hydrated and lubricated. In terms of food, a diet requires three crucial components, despite what you may have heard:

  • Carbohydrates
  • Protein
  • Fat

It is possible to get adequate nutrition from food, but in the real world, it’s quite common for adults to have nutrient deficiencies. These nutrient gaps can have adverse impacts on your body, including:

  • DNA damage
  • Faster aging
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of mental focus

What types of nutrients do you need?

Vitamins: Vitamins span a wide range and play crucial roles in nearly every function of the body. A multivitamin like Forever Daily® can ensure that you are getting the entire spectrum of essential vitamins.

Minerals: These are substances like calcium, copper, manganese and many more that play a role in everything from bone health to protecting your cells from oxidative stress. Minerals are present in tiny quantities in foods, but your body does not replace them on its own. That’s why a supplement like Forever Nature-Min® is so vital to ensure optimal mineral levels.

Antioxidants: Antioxidants are present in fruits like mango, berries and lemons. Antioxidants are the first line of defense against oxidative stress. Just as importantly, they scavenge the body to eradicate harmful free radicals.

The importance of nutrient absorption

It’s not only about the nutrients you put into your body, but how those nutrients are absorbed. Did you know our 99.7 percent pure Forever Aloe Vera Gel® aids in nutrient absorption? As our bodies age, our ability to absorb nutrients diminishes. Taking your supplements with aloe vera gel will aid in absorption and promote healthy digestion!

Keep your nutrition on track

Supplements are a great way to ensure your body is getting the right balance of nutrients. Remember, proper nutrition is the first step on any journey toward looking and feeling better. Pour yourself some delicious aloe vera gel and drink to a healthier, more motivated you!

Drink in the Benefits

AVG-ABN-Peaches-Tetrapaks - 2

Celebrated for thousands of years, aloe vera has many known benefits and is often used to soothe minor burns or comfort and moisturize stressed skin. But, did you know this powerful desert plant offers amazing scientifically proven benefits when consumed? Drink in the benefits of pure aloe vera with Forever’s aloe vera gel drinks –  Forever Aloe Vera Gel®, Forever Aloe Peaches™ and Forever Aloe Berry Nectar®. 

Originally from the Arabian Peninsula, aloe vera has been referenced throughout ancient history for its incredible benefits. The reason this powerful plant has stood the test of time is due to the potent nature of the inner leaf gel found in its thick leaves. Aloe Barbadensis or aloe vera, the varietal found to be most nutrient-dense and beneficial to humans, provides a thick gel layer rich with vitamins, minerals and nutrients.

One of these many nutritious compounds, acemannan, is a unique polysaccharide exclusively found in aloe vera. Acemannan is believed to be primarily responsible for many of its benefits. With such powerful effects, it’s no wonder that this plant has been used for centuries!

When ingested, the aloe works from the inside out leveraging natural cleansing abilities that help the digestive tract absorb nutrients from the foods we eat into the blood stream and promoting healthy bacteria growth. Imagine cutting open an aloe leaf and consuming the nutrient rich gel inside straight from the plant. Forever’s aloe vera products are as close to the real thing as you can get!

At our plantations, Forever hand harvests each of these precious succulents at the peak of maturity to ensure the most inner leaf gel can be extracted from each plant.  Leaves are removed from the lower level of each one by hand before being carefully cleaned and hand filleted, leaving only the pure, potent inner leaf gel.

Forever Aloe Vera Gel® provides a remarkable 99.7% inner leaf aloe vera gel. This nutrient rich drink helps to support a healthy digestive system and natural energy levels. No preservatives, no sugar, no gluten – just more natural aloe vera goodness for you to enjoy.

So pure and powerful, our aloe vera gel products were the first to be certified by the International Aloe Science Council (IASC). In fact, Forever Aloe Vera Gel® has nearly double the amount of acemannan required by the IASC, making it a powerful part of your daily routine.

But this nutritious drink isn’t just for the health-conscious. Forever also offers two additional delicious flavors with added health benefits.

Forever Aloe Berry Nectar® is a refreshing mix of cranberries, sweet apples and 90.7% stabilized, inner leaf aloe vera gel. Like our other drinks, it has the same great benefits to your digestive and immune systems, while also tapping into your natural energy levels.

But this tangy, robust drink goes even further. Packed with phytonutrients and vitamins, cranberries are an excellent superfood loaded with mighty vitamin C. They also have proanthocyanidins—powerful antioxidants that provide urinary health support.

What’s more, Forever Aloe Berry Nectar® has quercetin, a powerful antioxidant found in apples. How’s that for a healthy and delicious choice?

If you want the perks of aloe with a splash of sweetness, try Forever Aloe Peaches™. This tasty drink combines juicy peach puree with calcium and 84.5% stabilized inner leaf aloe vera gel.  Enjoy the powerful punch of our aloe vera gel with the rich taste of sun-ripened peaches.

Aseptically processed with no added preservatives and in packaging made with 100% recyclable materials, Forever Aloe Vera Gel®, Forever Aloe Peaches™ and Forever Aloe Berry Nectar® pack all the power of pure aloe vera – just as nature intended.

Aloe Vera Health Benefits

Aloe Vera the Miracle Plant

Smart people through the millennia have prized aloe plants.

• Hippocrates, father of modern medicine, used at least 14 different formulas containing aloe, 2400 years ago.

• It was King Solomon’s favourite laxative.

• Alexander the Great was exhorted by his teacher Aristotle to conquer the island of Succotra where a rare plant called Aloe succotrina grew, so he could have aloe for his soldiers. At least that’s the story that’s been handed down. This early Mediterranean variety of aloe was known to be so potent that Alexander never left on a military mission without hauling a whole forest of the plants with him.

But we don’t have to rely on ancient legends. There’s plenty of contemporary evidence for aloe:

• Bill C. Coats, expert on aloe vera and author of The Silent Healer: A Modern Study of Aloe Vera, tells the story of the old rancher whose prize bull was bitten by a huge rattlesnake. The bull’s leg was swollen to three times its normal size, and the poison was taking a serious toll. It looked like the animal was going to die.

The rancher sliced two oversized leaves of aloe, wrapped them as a poultice around the bull’s leg. A short time later the bull could walk again. Within 24 hours he was completely healed.

• Father Romano Zago, a Brazilian priest and author of the book Cancer Can Be Cured, tells this story (plus at least 40 more) in his book:

The uncle of one of his parishioners, Giovanni, was deathly ill with prostate cancer. 

Father Zago visited the man to administer last rites. But he also knew of a remedy he believed could save Giovanni’s life. Try as he might to convince Giovanni’s wife to give it to him, though, she refused, thinking he was offering false hope.

Later Father Zago happened on the man’s son, and convinced him to prepare this drink for Giovanni. The boy promised to give it to his father. A week later, Father Zago learned that Giovanni was released from the hospital. The family thought the reason was to let him die at home.

But then they told Father Zago that the tennis ball sized swelling near Giovanni’s stomach had shrunk, disappeared even. At which time Father Zago declared Giovanni out of imminent danger, saying this was a sign he was improved.

Long story short, Giovanni improved month after month, resumed his life’s work, and lived to be more than 80 years old. 

• Dr. Julian Whitaker reported that a 10-year-old boy diagnosed with a rare brain tumor went into remission after drinking whole-leaf Aloe vera concentrate, 8 ounces a day for three months. Surgeons had been unable to remove the entire tumor, leaving his future uncertain, to say the least.

The child was living a normal lifestyle and participating in sports — but still drinking Aloe vera juice every day — at the time of the Whitaker report.

Is Aloe the Cure for Everything?

    Fresh aloe gel used as a topical may be the best skin cream on earth. The yellow bitter part of the leaf is a proven laxative. And whole-leaf extracts can help fire up your immune system, reduce swelling, improve healing, kill bacteria and viruses, and improve communication within and between cells.

    But nothing works 100 percent of the time.

    Body chemistries vary. And frankly, some people’s biochemistry may be so out of balance that nothing can heal it. However, Bill Coats says that if anything has a chance of working on such folks, it’s probably aloe.

What’s So Miraculous about Aloe?

    Aloe is one of the world’s most biologically active plants. It contains life’s basic building blocks — essential vitamins and minerals, proteins, polysaccharides, enzymes, and amino acids.

    Most of aloe’s leaves are filled with gel, about 99 percent of which is water. The remaining one percent boasts at least 75 known nutrients — including 20 minerals, 12 vitamins, 18 amino acids, 200 active plant compounds such as phytonutrients, enzymes, proteins, oils, monosaccharides and polysaccharides.

    Most people are only familiar with the skin healing aloe offers. But this remedy can do so much more. It has recognized antioxidant, anti-aging, and healing properties.

    Some consider it the world’s most impressive herb. Here are the benefits that have been credited to aloe:

• Stops the growth of tumor cells

• Lowers cholesterol / triglycerides

• Oxygenates your blood

• Eases inflammation

• Relieves joint and muscle pain

• Protects you from oxidative stress

• Supports your kidney

• Protects you from oxalates in coffee and tea

• Alkalizes your body, balancing your acid levels

• Cures ulcers, IBS, Crohn’s disease, and other digestive disorders

• Controls high blood pressure 

• Accelerates healing of physical and radiation burns

• Ends constipation

• Supports heart function, boosts physical endurance

• Speeds wound and injury recovery 

• Hydrates your skin, speeds skin repair

• Prevents candida infections

• Stabilizes blood sugar / insulin levels

• Controls cell communications

What Aloe Can Do for Cancer

Some alternative cancer experts rate aloe a “Stage IV Supplemental” treatment, to be used with highly potent “Stage IV” protocols, like radiation and chemo (should you choose to use them). Some clinics use aloe to boost the effectiveness of the chemo agents cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan, Neosar) and 5-fluorouracil (5-FU).

    Aloe is an immune stimulant that helps kill cancer and invading organisms.

    Dozens of studies confirm aloe’s anti-cancer activity — linked to acemannan’s immune-stimulating properties and glycoprotein, as well as anthraquinone and phenolic antioxidants. Acemannan is a substance found in aloe vera leaves. Aloe also boosts nitric oxide, a potent anti-cancer agent used by your immune cells.

    A large epidemiological survey of lung cancer and smoking in Japan suggested that drinking aloe juice prevented lung cancer, as well as stomach and colon cancer. Its impact on existing cancers was unclear.

A Word about Cellular Communication

    Aloes contain unique sugars called mannans, which enhance cellular communication — both within and between your cells. 

    These mannans are part of a crucial “telegraph” system capable of preventing or slowing down cancer. Mannans are responsible for billions of messages… and the implications of poor messaging are staggering.

Dramatic Story about AIDS and Cancer

    An AIDS study provides one of the most dramatic clinical proofs about aloe. Nearly everyone in the study who was on the daily aloe regimen got better, as indicated by skyrocketing white T-cell counts.

    One patient from this trial also had advanced liver cancer and was given less than two months to live. His liver was four times normal size. He kept drinking the juice, improved gradually… one year later his tumors were gone. 

    Pathologist H. Reginald McDaniel, MD, also involved with this trial, was initially skeptical. Seeing seriously ill patients improve was good. But what really sealed it for him was a disease of his own — viral pneumonia which conventional medicine couldn’t cure. He drank aloe, and his cure made him an aloe advocate.

Keep Aloe Handy in Case of Trauma Too

    In 2004, researchers discovered that an aloe compound called drag reducing polymer (DRP) could help patients with trauma and severe blood loss. DRP enhances the diffusion of oxygen in the red blood cells supporting your tissues — and allows a traumatized patient to live on less blood.

    This could potentially save many lives from car wrecks, war injuries, and other traumas. Perhaps this was Alexander the Great’s experience too.

How to Choose the ‘Right’ Aloe

    With 300 species of aloe and a host of products all claiming to be the best, how do you choose?

    Aloe vera is certainly the most well-known. Most store-shelf aloe juices don’t go much beyond soothing minor cuts. They’re processed, heated, and diluted. Nor do you have control over previous light exposure.  Also, it’s perfectly legal for aloe juice products to claim “Made with 100% Aloe Vera” on the bottle, when in reality, it may be 99% water and just 1% aloe vera juice. 
The processing method has the largest effect on the number and amount of active ingredients in an aloe vera product. The commercial production process of aloe vera products typically involves the crushing, grinding or pressing of the whole leaf to produce juice, followed by various steps of filtration and stabilization to achieve the desired extract. Although this is easier for the manufacturers, it can result in a product that contains little or no active ingredients.

It turns out, after extracting the gel, heating it and using fillers to make aloe vera products, the health benefits are minimized. In order to stop the common misrepresentations in the industry, and the false idea that all aloe vera products produce the same benefits, the International Aloe Science Council developed a certification program that validates the quality and quantity of aloe vera in approved commercial products. When looking to purchase aloe vera, read the labels carefully and look for this important certification.

 Forever Aloe Vera is grown at our plantations in the Dominican Republic and Texas. Forever Aloe is carefully grown and cultivated, ensuring the highest quality plant possible.

With the perfect balance of soil, the ideal temperature and just the right amount of rainfall, we grow quality into the Aloe plants. On our Dominican Republic plantation, we have over 30 million plants and harvest over 1 million pounds of Aloe per week!

From planting to tending to harvesting, our Aloe plants are carefully nurtured with the same level of care and standards that we put into to every one of our final products. Our farmers harvest our Aloe by hand, treating it with great care.

Raw materials can vary up to 500% based on method of harvest, climate, season and storage conditions. To minimize variations and to ensure the quality of our Aloe, the leaves are processed and packed for shipping to our manufacturing facilities within hours of harvest in order to ensure that you get the purest, freshest Aloe Vera gel as it was intended, intact with all its inherent qualities. Forever Aloe Vera Gel is the first to receive the International Aloe Science Council’s certification.

Recommended Doses of Aloe Vera

These recommended aloe vera doses are based on scientific research and publications. Make sure to read the label on aloe vera products before using them, and notify your doctor if you experience any side effects:

• For constipation, take 100–200 milligrams of aloe vera daily.

• For wound healing, psoriasis and other skin infections, use aloe propolis cream three times daily.

• For dental plaque and gum disease, use a toothpaste that contains aloe vera for 24 weeks.

• For high cholesterol, take 2 ounce of aloe vera gel twice daily for two months.

• For inflammatory bowel disease, drink 100 millilitres aloe vera gel twice daily for four weeks.

• For skin burns, use a 97.5 percent aloe gel on the burn until it’s healed.

• For dry scalp or dandruff, use a shampoo with a high content of aloe vera.

• To protect your skin from infection and bacteria, use a skin lotion with a high content of aloe vera gel.

5 Steps To A Healthier You!

1. Drink Aloe Vera Every Day

IMG_0959

Aloe Vera has been found to be helpful for:

  • Easing inflammation and soothing arthritic pain
  • Ulcers, including those caused by H. pylori bacteria
  • Crohn’s disease, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and other digestive disorders
  • Helping treat and prevent candida and parasite infections
  • Accelerating healing from wounds, burns, and ulcers (externally and internally)
  • Relieving constipation
  • Stabilizing blood sugar
  • Protecting kidneys
  • Oxygenating the blood and protecting the body from oxidative stress
  • Reducing high blood pressure
  • Helping reduce and reverse acid reflux
  • Helping halt growth of cancer tumors
  • Reducing heart attacks and strokes

 2. Incorporate Fiber In Your Daily Diet

fiber

While we often associate fiber with supporting digestive function – and this is certainly very true – fiber provides significant benefits to the body overall. Forever Fiber™, taken between meals, can help to support feelings of fullness, thereby controlling appetite and cravings, and caloric intake. This is especially important for those on a weight management program, when used with a healthy diet and regular exercise. By also helping to support normal blood sugar levels already in the normal range, and slow the absorption of macronutrients from our foods, fiber can also help limit feelings of sluggishness or low energy after we eat.

Fiber has been shown to support cardiovascular function and, of course, because scientists now recognize that up to 70% or 80% of immune function in the body is associated with the gastrointestinal tract, fiber may help to support the immune system via its benefits for digestive function. Adequate soluble fiber intake can facilitate removal of waste products from the body and may help to relieve occasional constipation.

Forever Fiber™ makes it easy to add more fiber to your diet by providing 5 grams of soluble fiber in each stick-pack. That is the equivalent of almost 1 ½ cups brown rice or 2 slices of whole wheat toast – without the carbohydrates and calories! Forever Fiber™ is a convenient way to increase your overall daily fiber intake and optimize your health.  Experts recommend that we consume up to 30 grams of fiber daily for optimal health and digestive function, yet sadly, most people only consume approximately half that amount. Our search for convenience in the foods we eat means that we aren’t obtaining the adequate amounts of fiber that we need to support our health. Forever Fiber™ is a proprietary blend of four types of fiber, and offers a convenient way to add some extra fiber to your diet – by sprinkling on the foods you eat, mixing with Forever Aloe Vera Gel® or other beverage, or adding to your water bottle when you are on the go!

3. Use Essential Oils For Your Everyday Needs

forever essential oils

Essential oil uses range from aromatherapy, household cleaning products, personal beauty care and natural medicine treatments.

The particles in essential oils come from distilling or extracting the different parts of plants, including the flowers, leaves, bark, roots, resin and peels. In ancient times, Jews and Egyptians made essential oils by soaking the plants in oil and then filtering the oil through a linen bag.

Essential oil benefits come from their antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.

These healing oils are rapidly growing in popularity because they act as natural medicine without any side effects. 

4. Maintain Healthy Weight

Benefits Of Aloe Vera For Skin

Due to its several benefits Aloe Vera has acquired pronounced recognition and has become an important natural ingredient to be used in various beauty products.

Aloe Vera has many properties that are powerful in treating a number of skin problems.

1. Aloe Vera As A Moisturizer:

It possesses great moisturizing properties, so it’s very beneficial for dry skin. This natural moisturizer maintains the skin hydrated and enhances its elasticity. When applied topically, it releases natural enzymes and essential vitamins to yield a deep moisturizing effect and restores pH balance as well. It also supplies oxygen to the skin, which strengthens the skin tissues and maintains the skin healthy. It moisturizes the skin without giving it a greasy feel, so it’s ideal for those having oily complexion. It’s great for cleansing and softens the skin.

2. Aloe Vera For Men:

Aloe Vera can be effectively used as an Aftershave Lotion because of its healing properties. It can treat small cuts caused by shaving. So it’s useful for both women and men.

3. Aloe Vera For Acne Treatment:

Aloe Vera gel possesses two hormones – Auxin and Gibberellin that provide wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties. Because of these properties, it can be used to reduce inflammation, blistering and itchiness. Gibberellin in aloe vera acts as a growth hormone. It not only promotes the growth of new skin cells, but also stimulates the skin to heal quickly with minimal scarring. Although it does not completely cure the acne but it reduces the inflammation and redness of the skin effectively. It can also be used to prevent pimples and acne. You can apply Aloe Vera Gel  directly on the affected area to cure acne.

4. Prevent Skin Aging:

Aloe Vera contains lots of antioxidants, including beta carotene, vitamin C and E that improve the natural firmness of the skin and keep the skin hydrated.  A regular application of Aloe Vera Gel improves skin’s elasticity and helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles associated with aging and loss of skin’s elasticity. While refreshing your skin, it makes your skin lively and young, leaving it soft and hydrated.

5. Heals Skin Disorders:

Due to its anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral properties Aloe Vera, can be used to treat various skin ailments, such as eczema, psoriasis, itchy skin, as well as treating blisters, insect bites etc.

6. Aloe Vera For Glowing Skin:

Aloe Vera helps to get rid of dead skin cells and replaces it with new ones, providing a radiant glow to the skin. Drinking Aloe Vera Gel helps your body with vital nutrients which will cause your skin look young and healthy.


Testimonials

“I first heard about drinking Aloe Vera back in the early 1980’s, it was when my mother was in her early sixties developing  breathing problems  and  was  prescribed prednisone. She was introduced to drinking Aloe Vera, which I believe  helped her  recover from the breathing problems and she lived until   the fall of 2012 at the age of  94 with no major health issues.

In the fall of 2008 I was diagnosed with colon cancer. A dear friend told me about Forever Living Aloe Vera Gel, which especially helped me  through the chemotherapy treatment ordeal. I believe that drinking the Forever Living Aloe Vera Gel helped me  with  minimal side effects  in comparison to the expected side effects advised by the medical professionals.

Then in the fall of  2014, Buddy  our dog  developed an autoimmune disease and was prescribed prednisone.  Buddy’s health was failing and a decision had to be made. At that time I decided to try Aloe Vera Gel in his food.It’s 2016, I am happy to say, I am a cancer survivor and Buddy, the dog recovered from the disease and is doing well for an 11-year-old senior doggy. There is no doubt  that Aloe Vera Gel played  a major part in the healing and recovery of  the dog, me and my mom.There will always be Forever Living Aloe Vera Gel in my house.

Hello Olga

Yes I like my products! The dry patches on my face are better after using the creme and I’ve been using the aloe gelly on my sons dry patches on his arm and it has helped. 🙂 I have also noticed the creme to help with my psoriasis on my knees and elbows. I’m going to continue to use everyday and see if I see more results as I haven’t been using everyday. Thank you for reaching out. Have a great day.

“I am a woman in the sixth decade of life, I am a daughter, a sister, a wife a mother and a grandmother. As time passes I see more and more of the ailments common to my family in myself.I have osteoarthritis and have had a hip replacement surgery. My grandfather was crippled by this disease and endured much pain. Many of my extended family are also afflicted. An awesome friend of mine recommended the Forever Freedom Aloe Vera Juice with glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM, I began taking it about eight month ago, it’s not like taking an Aspirin, it takes a little while to notice the benefits, so gradual in fact that I put it to the test and stopped taking it. It took only a week to realize that it was indeed the Aloe Vera Juice responsible for the improvement and the way I felt.

My quality of life is much improved and I will keep taking it.”

To take a line from the C9 booklet,

“Can you look better and feel better in just nine days?” 

A resounding YES!

I became interested in the C9 program when my sister-in-law told me about her success with it.  I am a dance teacher, and a rock climber, so I live a pretty active lifestyle, but I wanted to cut fat, for a leaner, more toned look.I kept track of my physical progress, as well as how I was feeling throughout the nine days, so that I could recommend the product and give advice to first time users.  I formatted my review in four stages, just how it will appear when you start the cleanse for yourself.

DAY 1: BASE MEASUREMENTS: (in inches)Chest: 31Biceps: 9 1/4Waist: 25 1/2Hips: 37Thighs: 21Calves: 12 1/2

ALOE VERA GEL: The very first part of the cleanse that you will experience is the Aloe Vera Gel, which has been proven to have fantastic benefits for your health, and appearance.  The only thing that is not fantastic about it is the taste. Most people do not have a problem with it, but for some reason, it was difficult for me UNTIL I discovered a trick that got me through the remaining 8 days:

Aloe Vera Gel Tip: Follow your shot of Aloe Gel with a bite of a “free” food from the C9 list, and remember the benefits FAR outweigh the taste!I found that HALOS (mandarin oranges) were the best at masking the taste of the Gel, however APPLES, and GRAPES also worked wonders.

GARCINIA and THERM TABLETS: Possibly my favorite part of the cleanse experience was the energy and focus that came from the Garcinia and Therm supplements. I had more motivation to do normal tasks, and my workouts were better than ever!  Plus, they were easy to take, and had no bad aftertaste.

FOREVER FIBER: The Fiber packets helped a lot with curbing hunger, and best of all, they dissolved easily, and were tasteless when consumed in a glass of water.

FOREVER LITE ULTRA SHAKES: YUM! Seriously, that about sums up how I feel about the shakes.  I had never tried a protein powder before starting C9, so I had no idea what to expect. I choose the Chocolate flavor, and throughout the process, created some delicious shake recipes that I have continued to use even after completing the cleanse! I LOVE to eat, so I expected to be absolutely starving every day.  However, I was happily surprised at how full the shakes made me feel, even while the fat was dropping off of my body.

DAY 3:MEASUREMENTS: (changes are in BOLD)Chest: 31Biceps: 9 ½ (1/4 inch gain, which was my goal for rock climbing)Waist: 25 (1/2 inch loss)Hips: 36 (1 inch loss)Thighs: 20 (1 inch loss)Calves: 12 ½

My initial thought on the morning of Day 3 was “WOW!” In just two days I had already begun to see changes in my body, and overall feeling of health.  I had gained muscle mass where I wanted to tone up, and lost inches of fat from my waist, hips, and thighs!

Throughout the cleanse I kept active, but did not go out of my way to increase my exercise level.  I kept teaching dance classes, walking the dogs, and went rock climbing 4-5 times per week (which is my normal routine).

MORE SHAKES: The cleanse changes on day 3 to incorporate a Forever Lite Ultra shake for lunch, as well as a 600 calorie meal for dinner. You have cleansed your body of the toxins that you ingest from processed foods and now are ready to begin filling it with what it really needs!

FREE FOODS: Thank goodness for these! If you are a naturally active person, you might have more trouble curbing the hunger that you will experience from changing the way you think about and consume calories.  That’s ok, because you have a long list of healthy foods to choose from when you feel a craving. The best part is that you are training your body to crave HEALTHY foods, and these cravings will continue even after you are done with the program.  I find that I crave healthier snacks after completing C9, because my body loved the nourishment that it got from the natural sugars found in fruits and veggies.

DAY 6:MEASUREMENTSChest: 31Biceps: 9 1/2Waist: 25Hips: 35 ¾ (1/4 inch loss)Thighs: 20Calves: 12 ½As you consume more calories during the later stages of the cleanse, you will not see as dramatic weight loss as you do on the first 2 days, however, what you WILL see is your body toning up and your muscles showing through! Even though I only technically lost ¼ inch from day 3 to day 6, I could see my muscles through the lessening layer of fat that covers them, even without flexing!

Days 3-9 tip: Get creative with your 600 calorie meals!You will be surprised how few calories there are in natural foods.  You might think that 600 calories is just not enough to satisfy you, but some of the things I was able to make in under 600 calories include: Chicken Caesar Salad, Chipotle Glazed Salmon, Veggie Pasta, and even Tacos with Black Beans and Rice!

DAY 9:MEASUREMENTS:
Chest: 31 (No change)Biceps: 9 ½ (Total Gain= ¼ inch)Waist: 24 ½ (Total Loss= 1 inch)Hips: 35 (Total Loss= 2 inches)Thighs: 19 ½ (Total Loss= 1 ½ inches)Calves: 12 ¼ (Total Loss= ¼ inch)When I finished the C9 program I lost a total of 4 ¾ inches from my body, could see that my muscles were more clearly defined, and I felt energized and motivated to continue making healthy choices. There are challenges that come with ANY change that you make in your life, and of course the results from C9 will vary from person to person, but I’m sold! C9 will now be my go to program when I want to jump start weight loss, muscle gain, or when I need to get back on track with my fitness goals!

Protecting Day Lotion - overhead 2

Imagine your skin as a juicy plum – moisturized, taut and smooth. However, as we age our skin loses moisture faster and with environmental factors like pollution and the sun, our skin loses elasticity, luster and firmness.

While we can’t turn back the hands of time, we can restore skin’s moisture balance, stimulate healthy collagen levels and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles – making your skin appear more like a freshly picked plum.

    The Aloe Fleur de Jouvence Collection provides you with all the elements of our restorative.

    STEP 1

    Cleanse

    Aloe Cleanser is the first step in achieving beautiful, flawless skin. Massage Aloe Cleanser into face and neck area every morning and evening. Gently remove with a dampened cloth or tissue.

    STEP 2

    Tone

    Rehydrating Toner is alcohol-free and contains aloe vera, collagen and allantoin for gentle toning. Using a cotton ball, apply Rehydrating Toner in an upward motion every morning and evening.

    STEP 3

    Moisturize (Morning)

    Firming Day Lotion is a hydrating moisturizer that helps skin retain its healthy, vibrant appearance. Gently massage lotion into the face and neck area. It also makes an excellent base for applying your favorite cosmetics from the Sonya Colour Collection.

    STEP 3

    Moisturize (Evening)

    Recovering Night Creme hydrates and soothes, replenishing your skin while you sleep. After cleansing each evening before bedtime, apply generously to face and neck area.

    Aloe Facial

    An Aloe Facial is recommended 2 to 3 times a week to smooth, cleanse and tighten the skin while revitalizing your appearance. Aloe Activator is a superb moisturizing agent and is the ideal partner to work in combination with the Mask Powder. Aloe Activator is also extremely effective as a skin cleanser and freshener.

    Add one mixing spoon of Mask Powder to the mixing bowl. Combine with one mixing spoon of Aloe Activator until the mixture has the consistency of lotion. Use the applicator brush to apply a thin, even film from the neck upward. Relax in a reclining position, limiting facial movement for approximately 30 minutes.

    Apply a moist towel to the face to soften the mask, then gently remove remaining mask and rinse with warm water. Follow with toner and your favorite moisturizer.

    For additional benefits, use Forever Living’s Facial Fabrique Tissue. This revolutionary product heightens exfoliation by refining the pores and tightening the skin. Facial Fabrique’s unique layering design also helps the skin better absorb the many wonderful nutrients found in the aloe vera rich moisturizers from Forever Living Products.

Thoughts About Health, Fittness And Nutrition

 

fittness nutrition

External stress and the demands of life affect virtually everyone in today’s society.

Stress depletes critical nutrients and creates a higher demand for specific vitamins and minerals. But in today’s fast-paced, fast-food world, few of us eat the way we should, and our nutritional needs become less of a priority.

In fact, studies show that over 90% of Americans are deficient in at least one vitamin or mineral, and only about 9% of the American population consumes the recommended five servings of fruits and vegetables daily.

Making healthy food choices and getting enough of the right nutrients in our diets might sound overwhelming with so much going on in our busy lives, but it can start with a few simple changes

Preparation is key,  always having the right sort of foods and snacks available is crucial and should be the case both in the fridge and when out and about.

Have meals that consist of green vegetables or salad and either salmon or cod, steak, chicken or lean beef mince, turkey or venison. You can cook the vegetables in a variety of different ways; stir-fries are particularly quick and easy. Use fresh herbs like coriander and basil as well as fresh spices, including ginger and chillies.

Eat five small meals a day; these should always include protein. I recommend eating protein at least three times a day to help maintain lean tissue. A great snack is avocado or a couple of dessert spoons of nuts and seeds.

I drink black coffee to keep my dairy intake to a minimum as I get my ‘good fats’ from other sources. My latest ‘love’ is 100% pure cacao! Chocoholics take note – it is good for you! It’s a useful source of magnesium, potassium and iron. I simply add a spoonful for flavour or make it into a drink. 

I am a major advocate for drinking a lot of water as water is very important for many of our body’s processes, and you should also use our fantastic supplements; my immune system benefits from many of the ingredients contained in certain Forever supplements.

Before you go to bed have a Greek yogurt with a scoop of Forever Lite protein powder for flavour and a generous sprinkle of crushed seeds (such as chia, flax, sunflower and pumpkin). These are full of fibre and protein as well as vitamins and minerals.

As for exercise it is crucial to set a goal; make a plan and stick to it! Consistency is key and essential to maintaining good habits and achieving your goals.

Getting good quality sleep for your body to repair and recover is also really important; I definitely notice a difference  if I’ve not had enough hours of sleep.

Finally I use Forever Garcinia Plus three times a day – because it contains chromium which contributes to the maintenance of normal blood glucose levels, Forever Therm twice a day, and my absolute favourite, ARGI+ !

35 Essential Oil Uses

Essential oil uses range from aromatherapy, household cleaning products, personal beauty care and natural medicine treatments.

The particles in essential oils come from distilling or extracting the different parts of plants, including the flowers, leaves, bark, roots, resin and peels. In ancient times, Jews and Egyptians made essential oils by soaking the plants in oil and then filtering the oil through a linen bag.

Essential oil benefits come from their antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.

These healing oils are rapidly growing in popularity because they act as natural medicine without any side effects. Ready to harness the power of the world’s most proven therapeutic compounds? Then let’s talk about the many ways to use these amazing essential oils.

Lavender – The Versatile Essential Oil.

100% PURE. 100% PEACE

FOREVER™ ESSENTIAL OILS LAVENDER | 506

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) is called the “Swiss Army Knife” of essential oils for good reason—its benefits and uses are virtually limitless, which is why lavender is often the first oil people experience as they are introduced to essential oils. Lavender has been prized for centuries for its calming, soothing, and regenerating properties, and a large body of scientific evidence supports its use for a variety of conditions experienced by man. Stress and anxiety is a daily battle for many. Fortunately, lavender is waiting in the wings to encourage a more relaxed and peaceful state. Its aroma is calming to the mind, body and emotions. Knowing its profound relaxing properties, a number of scientists have researched lavender essential oil and its influence on stress, anxious feelings, negative emotions and overall mental well-being. The evidence is mounting that the use of lavender supports normal mood states and can reduce the negative effects of stress and anxious feelings. Study after study has concluded that lavender essential oil is an extraordinary stressbuster that can affect the stress response on a variety of levels. Scientists have discovered that inhaling lavender oil balances cortisol (the primary stress hormone) levels in the body. Scared of going to the dentist? Scientists report that those who inhale lavender essential oil in the dental office waiting room experience less anxiety about dental procedures. According to published research, infants who receive a lavender bath are calmer. Indeed, enough positive research has been published regarding lavender’s effect on mood state that it is approved in Europe to alleviate a number of mood disturbances.

Using Lavender Oil

To enjoy the calming effects of lavender, place a drop or two on a tissue and inhale from this regularly, diffuse lavender or apply a drop or two to the wrists. If worries are keeping you awake, lavender essential oil may be your ticket to a good night’s sleep. Place a couple of drops on a cotton ball under your pillow, or a drop or two on the underside of your pillowcase to enjoy the restful sleep you have been missing. You can also diffuse lavender next to your bed. Not only does lavender soothe the mind and emotions, it also helps ease muscle soreness at both the physical and emotional level. Lavender mixed in carrier oil and massaged into sore, tired muscles can provide long-lasting relief. It can also be applied to soothe the head and neck. Lavender is nourishing to the skin too. It promotes the health of the feet and is soothing to stressed skin. It also has a long history of relieving the discomfort, and encouraging the normal repair, of tissues following a sunburn or burn. Many people find that a drop or two of lavender next to affected areas provides soothing relief. Lavender essential oil also nourishes the scalp and hair by encouraging normal hair growth and enhancing the luster and glow of hair. It only takes a drop or two added to your shampoo to realize this nourishing effect for the hair. Lavender is also used to support normal digestion. It supports the production of gastric juices and bile, which aids the digestion of meals, and helps food move through the digestive tract normally so that nutrients can be absorbed. Massage a drop or two to the abdomen in a clockwise direction to support normal digestion. A practical way to use lavender is to add a few drops of lavender essential oil to a wet cloth and place it in the dryer with your clothes for a clean, fresh scent. This makes a great alternative to laundry fresheners with harsh synthetic chemicals. This is just one great way to care for clothes – try several drops on a cotton ball to create a natural “moth ball.” Many people also use lavender essential oil mixed with some witch hazel to deter pesky bugs from biting. If a bug does happen to penetrate your lavender essential oil shield, you can apply a drop of lavender to the area for soothing relief. With so many benefits and uses of lavender essential oil, many essential oils users are inclined to say “when in doubt, use lavender”.

Nutrition From The Bee Hive!

 

forever-bee-products

When we think of bees, honey and pollen are foremost in our thoughts. Yet another important substance, propolis, is a sticky resin collected by bees. Honeybees collect and metabolize the propolis, then line their hives with it to protect the hive. It’s so effective, the interior of the beehive has been found to be safer than most operating rooms. The name Propolis is derived from the Greek meaning “before the city,” signifying that propolis defended the entire community from external threat. Propolis has a 5000-year history. The Assyrians and the Greeks used propolis to help maintain good health. Fortified with royal jelly, Forever Bee Propolis® is an excellent way to help support the body’s natural defenses. Forever Bee Propolis® is gathered from pollution free regions. To further assure purity, specially designed bee propolis collectors are used.

Forever Bee Propolis® is 100% natural with no added preservatives or artificial colors.FOREVER BEE PROPOLIS

 

Royal Jelly is a substance derived from the pharyngeal glands of the honey bee. This “super food” of the bees is specially blended with enzymes and fed to each bee destined to become a queen. It is the exclusive food of the queen bee throughout her highly productive life, enabling her to lay up to 3,000 eggs per day during her sixyear lifespan. Worker bees eating ordinary honey live only four to six weeks.

royal-jelly

Royal Jelly can help support the immune system, increase energy, and benefit the skin and hair.

Pollen is the fertilizing dust of flowers. Bees gather and bring it back to their hives for food. Without pollen, plants, trees and flowers could not exist; even we depend on it.

Forever Bee Pollen® is gathered in specially-designed stainless steel collectors from the blossoms that blanket remote, high desert regions. This ensures the freshest and most potent natural food. Forever Bee Pollen is all-natural and contains no preservatives, artificial flavors, or colors.

Bee Pollen is readily digestible and easily absorbed by the human body. Research by scientists suggest that Bee Pollen provides energy and may enhance stamina.

Bees make honey by traveling from flower to flower, removing the rich nectar, storing it briefly to mix with their enzymes, and then depositing the honey in their hives. Throughout the ages, honey has been recognized as a premium natural food – a storehouse of energy that is easily digestible. This great-tasting, all natural sweetener is loaded with nature’s goodness.

Easy to digest, Forever Bee Honey® is a quick and natural energy source for any occasion!

Winter Beauty Tips For Cold Weather

Screen Shot 2017-11-03 at 17.04.05

Winter beauty tips for cold weather.

Let me ask you a question, how do you take care of your skin when it’s really cold outside? More than usual? Less than you feel you should? Maybe you want to know how to do it better, but you’re not sure how?

During these cold winter days, we might not want to put on too much makeup, which can dry out the face and make our skin dull. The key to winter skincare is moisture!

One of the fabulous things about Forever’s makeup is that it contains Aloe Vera, which soothes and calms the skin. Forever’s skincare boasts the same fantastic ingredient to help us achieve the best results when applying makeup.

Step 1
First,  cleanse your face with the Sonya® Aloe Purifying Cleanser from the Sonya® Skin Care Collection. Tip: You can also use the Sonya® Aloe Deep-Cleansing Exfoliator three times a week to scrub away dull skin.

Step 2
Apply the Sonya® Aloe Deep Moisturizing Cream, and on fine lines, you can add the Sonya® Aloe Nourishing Serum, which I simply adore. The smell and the texture it gives the skin is fantastic! Plus, the moisturizing cream keeps my skin smooth and moisturized all day.

Step 3
As my makeup base, we want something that easily evens out the skin, but still makes it look natural. I use the aloe BB crème Sandy with SPF 20. It protects your skin since there is UV factor, and also gives your complexion some color.

Step 4
Add a little Delicate Finishing Powder in Dark  to your cheekbones for some definition and the Brilliant Blush in Mia on to the apple of your cheeks, which really has that “winter pink” color to it and gives a fresh and healthy look.

Step 5
Apply the black Defining Eye Pencil right at your lash line to give extraordinary depth and to complete the natural look.

Can you believe all this takes is seven minutes? Until next time, take care of yourself and remember that beauty starts from within!

Why Do We Need To Add Fiber To Our Diet?

fiber

While we often associate fiber with supporting digestive function – and this is certainly very true – fiber provides significant benefits to the body overall. Forever Fiber™, taken between meals, can help to support feelings of fullness, thereby controlling appetite and cravings, and caloric intake. This is especially important for those on a weight management program, when used with a healthy diet and regular exercise. By also helping to support normal blood sugar levels already in the normal range, and slow the absorption of macronutrients from our foods, fiber can also help limit feelings of sluggishness or low energy after we eat.

Fiber has been shown to support cardiovascular function and, of course, because scientists now recognize that up to 70% or 80% of immune function in the body is associated with the gastrointestinal tract, fiber may help to support the immune system via its benefits for digestive function. Adequate soluble fiber intake can facilitate removal of waste products from the body and may help to relieve occasional constipation.

Forever Fiber™ makes it easy to add more fiber to your diet by providing 5 grams of soluble fiber in each stick-pack. That is the equivalent of almost 1 ½ cups brown rice or 2 slices of whole wheat toast – without the carbohydrates and calories! Forever Fiber™ is a convenient way to increase your overall daily fiber intake and optimize your health.  Experts recommend that we consume up to 30 grams of fiber daily for optimal health and digestive function, yet sadly, most people only consume approximately half that amount. Our search for convenience in the foods we eat means that we aren’t obtaining the adequate amounts of fiber that we need to support our health. Forever Fiber™ is a proprietary blend of four types of fiber, and offers a convenient way to add some extra fiber to your diet – by sprinkling on the foods you eat, mixing with Forever Aloe Vera Gel® or other beverage, or adding to your water bottle when you are on the go!

Good health starts with good nutrition. With today’s farming methods depleting the natural mineral content of our lands, we can no longer rely on our foods to completely provide us with the essential vitamins and minerals that our bodies need. More people are turning to nutritional supplements as a means of getting sufficient quantities of those vital nutrients that can make a difference to their quality of health. ARGI+® provides all the power of L-Arginine, plus pomegranate – well-known for its strong antioxidant properties and grape skin, red grape and berry extracts for cardiovascular and immune system support. L-Arginine is a potent amino acid that helps to support what scientists refer to as the “Miracle Molecule” – nitric oxide. L-Arginine is converted into nitric oxide in the body, to help support circulation.

Be Heart Healthy

CardioHealth (11-11) final

Get enough sleep

It seems like we’re always talking about the importance of getting a good night’s sleep and heart health is no exception. Studies show that those who get adequate rest have lower blood pressure and lower risk of diabetes, heart disease and other chronic diseases. Prepare your mind and body for a restful sleep by turning the TV off and avoiding your pesky cell phone. The artificial light from these sources can keep you from falling asleep quickly and experiencing a restful sleep!

Know your numbers

Measuring your cholesterol levels and blood pressure are a great way to gauge your heart health and recognize areas of concern. Healthy cholesterol levels should be below 200mg/dL. This stands for milligrams per deciliter and measures the concentration of cholesterol in your blood. Similarly, the American Heart Association recommends that blood pressure be less than 120/80 mm Hg. The top number indicates the pressure in the arteries when the heart beats and the bottom number measures the pressure in the arteries between beats when the heart muscle is resting. It’s important to remember that one reading doesn’t mean something is wrong but multiple high blood pressure readings can give you insight into how efficiently your heart is functioning. These are just a few of the ways that our body regulates and reports. How amazing is that?

Feed your heart

Okay, of course we don’t mean that literally! But there are heart healthy foods you should make sure you’re including in your diet. Good fats (mono and polyunsaturated fats) like olive oil, canola oil, fish that are high in omega-3s, avocados, some nuts and many other foods are great sources of these healthy fats.You should also get plenty of fiber through whole grains and vegetables. The target goal should be 35 grams of fiber every day! Fiber supports heart health by promoting lower cholesterol and helping you feel more satiated, which can support weight-loss. As you already know, when you lose weight, the body is able to function more efficiently, which in turn helps to support your heart. What’s not to love?

Choose the right supplements

While we all try to make the healthiest choices possible, there are times where this is hard or alltogether impossible! There are many heart health supplements that can help fill these gaps. Two of our favorites are Forever Arctic Sea® and Forever CardioHealth®. Forever Arctic Sea® provides the optimum balance of healthy fats to support a healthy heart including a proprietary blend of DHA-rich calamari oil, Omega-3 fish oil and high oleic olive oil. Forever CardioHealth® not only features CoQ10, a powerful naturally occurring antioxidant that decreases as we age, but also contains a powerful blend of B vitamins that help maintain healthy homocysteine levels. It gets better! Herbal extracts grape seed, turmeric, boswellia and olive leaf found in Forever CardioHealth® are known to be beneficial for cardiovascular health too!

CardioHealth (11-11) glamour

Understanding the effects that diet, exercise and a good night’s sleep can have on your health is a great first step to making positive changes that can help you look and feel better.

Forever Bee Pollen

bee_pollen

Bee pollen is a holistic remedy used throughout the world. Unfortunately the vast amount of uses that pollen can be used for are often overlooked.

What is Pollen?

Bee Pollen is made by honeybees, and is the food of the young bee. It is considered one of nature’s most completely nourishing foods as it contains nearly all nutrients required by humans. Bee-gathered pollens are rich in proteins (approximately 40% protein), free amino acids, vitamins, including B-complex, and folic acid.

Bee pollen is a complete food and contains many elements that products of animal origin do not possess. Bee pollen is more rich in proteins than any animal source. It contains more amino acids than beef, eggs, or cheese of equal weight. About half of its protein is in the form of free amino acids that are ready to be used directly by the body.

It is important to recognize that a one teaspoon dose of pollen takes one bee working eight hours a day for one month to gather. Each bee pollen pellet, contains over two million flower pollen grains and one teaspoonful contains over 2.5 billion grains of flower pollen.

Dr. Gabriel Cousens MD, has listed bee pollen as one of his 22 most recommended food energies. Bee Pollen can be used medicinally for a wide range of conditions from prostate health to skin conditions and can help correct specific nutritional imbalances within the body.

Here are just 10 great reasons to add fresh bee pollen to your daily diet… although there are many more!

1. Energy Enhancer – The range of nutrients found within bee pollen makes it a great natural energizer. The carbohydrates, protein and B vitamins can help keep you going all day by enhancing stamina and fighting off fatigue.

2. Skin Soother – Bee pollen is often used in topical products that aim to treat inflammatory conditions and common skin irritations like psoriasis or eczema. The amino acids and vitamins protect the skin and aid the regeneration of cells.

3. Respiratory System – Bee pollen contains a high quantity of antioxidants that may have an anti-inflammatory effect on the tissues of the lungs, preventing the onset of asthma.

4. Treating Allergies – Pollen reduces the presence of histamine, ameliorating many allergies. Dr. Leo Conway, M.D of Denver Colorado, reported that 94 percent of his patients were completely free from allergy symptoms once treated with oral feeding of pollen. Everything from asthma to allergies to sinus problems were cleared, confirming that bee pollen is wonderfully effective against a wide range of respiratory diseases.

5. Digestive System – In addition to healthful vitamins, minerals and protein, bee pollen contains enzymes that can aid in digestion. Enzymes assist your body in getting all the nutrients you need from the food that you eat.

6. Immune System Booster – Pollen is good for the intestinal flora and thereby supports the immune system. According to holistic health expert Dr. Joseph Mercola, bee pollen has antibiotic-type properties that can help protect the body from contracting viruses. It’s also rich in antioxidants that protect the cells from the damaging oxidation of free radicals.

7. Treats Addictions – Used holistically for healing addictions and inhibiting cravings by suppressing impulses. Because bee pollen crashes cravings, it is a very useful research is needed into this benefit, particularly when it comes to weight management.

8. Supports the Cardiovascular System – Bee Pollen contains large amounts of Rutin; an antioxidant bioflavonoid that helps strengthen capillaries, blood vessels, assists with circulatory problems and corrects cholesterol levels. Its potent anti-clotting powers could help prevent heart attack and stroke.

9. Prostate Aid – Men who suffer from benign prostate hyperplasia can find relief by using bee pollen. Bee pollen can help reduce inflammation to stop frequent urges to urinate.

10. Infertility Problems – Bee pollen stimulates and restores ovarian function, therefore may be used to assist in accelerating pregnancy. As well as being a hormonal booster it is also a great aphrodisiac!

How Should Bee Pollen Be Consumed?

Bee pollen is a food and acts faster and more effectively when taken at mealtime and especially with fruit, which lets it gently, perform a little cleansing of the intestinal flora.

Forever Bee Pollen is available in a 100 tablet bottle.

Top 10 Reasons To Drink Aloe Vera Gel

10 Proven Aloe Vera Benefits 

 Screen Shot 2018-01-04 at 19.16.52

1. Helps Soothe Rashes and Skin Irritations

There have been numerous reports that have explored the role of topical Aloe Vera administration in skin conditions and wound healing management, including the treatment of psoriasis, dermatitis, oral mucositis, surgical wounds and as a home remedy for burn injuries. The first study of this kind was surprisingly done in 1935!

Aloe Vera extract was reported to provide rapid relief from the itching and burning associated with severe radiation dermatitis and skin regeneration.

A 1996 study done at the Department of Clinical Physiology in Sweden included 60 patients with chronic psoriasis who participated in a randomized, double-blind, controlled trial of Aloe Vera or placebo cream. The cure rate in the Aloe Vera group was 83 percent (!) compared to only 7 percent in the placebo group, and there were no relapses reported at the 12-month follow-up.

In 2009, a systematic review summarized 40 studies that involved using Aloe Vera for dermatological purposes. The results suggest that oral administration of Aloe Vera in mice works effectively to heal wounds, can decrease the number and size of papillomas (small growths on the skin), and reduce the incidence of tumors by more than 90 percent in the liver, spleen and bone marrow. The studies also showed that aloe vera effectively treats genital herpes, psoriasis, dermatitis, frostbite, burns and inflammation. It can be used safely as an anti-fungal and antimicrobial agent.

2. Helps To Treats Burns

Aloe Vera gel has a protective effect against radiation damage to the skin. With the threat of nuclear warfare always looming, the U.S. government conducted research on the ability of Aloe Vera to treat thermal and radiation burns with the aim of introducing its use into the military.

By 1959, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the use of Aloe Vera ointment as an over-the-counter medication for healing burns on the skin. When Aloe Vera gel is used on burns, it prevents UV-induced suppression so the area can heal at a faster rate.

3. Helps with Cold Sores

When Aloe Vera gel is applied to a cold sore a few times a day, it eases the discomfort and helps speed the healing process. It’s also safe when consumed by mouth, so there is no need to worry about swallowing this natural treatment. Aloe Vera has antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties that accelerate healing and reduce pain associated with cold sores — or any sores on the mouth.

The amino acids and vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6 and vitamin C are also extremely helpful. One of the vitamin B6 benefits, for example, is it acts as a natural pain treatment and creates antibodies that our immune system uses to protect us.

4. Moisturizes Hair and Scalp

Aloe Vera is a great natural treatment for dry hair or an itchy scalp. It has nourishing properties, and the tons of vitamins and minerals that are present keep your hair strong and healthy. Because of Aloe Vera’s antibacterial and antifungal properties, it also helps with dandruff, and the gel’s enzymes can rid the scalp of dead cells and promote the regeneration of skin tissue around the hair follicles.

Aloe also helps stop the itching associated with dandruff or a dried scalp. Too many shampoos and conditioners are full of chemicals that damage hair and can even cause inflammation and skin irritations; adding aloe vera is an effective way to keep your scalp free of bacteria and uncomfortable skin reactions.

5. Good for Constipation

The use of aloe latex as a laxative is well-researched; the anthraquinones present in the latex create a potent laxative that increases intestinal water content, stimulates mucus secretion and increases intestinal peristalsis, which are contractions that break down food and mix the chyme.

In a double-blind, randomized, controlled trial of 28 healthy adults, aloe vera latex was reported to have a laxative effect compared to a placebo that was stronger than the stimulant laxative phenolphthalein — making aloe vera a natural constipation relief remedy.

6. Helps with Digestion

Because of its anti-inflammatory and laxative components, another Aloe Vera benefit is its ability to help with digestion. Aloe Vera juice helps digestion, normalizes acid/alkaline and pH balance, lessens yeast formation, encourages digestive bacteria and regulates  bowel processing.

One study reported in the Journal of Research in Medical Sciences found that 30 millilitres of aloe vera juice twice a day decreased the level of discomfort in 33 patients with irritable bowel syndrome. Flatulence also decreased for the participants, but stool consistence, urgency and frequency remained the same. Although the study suggests that aloe vera can be beneficial to people with IBS, more data is needed to conclude that it can be used as an effective treatment.

Another study from the Avicenna Journal of Phytomedicine tested aloe vera on a group of rats with gastrointestinal problems. The gastric acid levels were significantly decreased in rats treated with aloe vera. The study also measured the gut-brain connection and reported data on the water content found in the brains of the rats with aloe vera treatment. The water content in the treated rats was reduced, which suggests that the brain influences the gut and gastrointestinal problems.

Aloe Vera has been used to soothe and heal stomach ulcers because it has antibacterial agents and natural healing properties that can restore the stomach lining back to health.

7. Good for the Immune System

The enzymes present in Aloe Vera break down the proteins that we eat into amino acids and turn the enzymes into fuel for every cell in the body, which enables the cells to function properly. The bradykinase in aloe vera stimulates the immune system and kills infections. Zinc is also an important component in aloe vera — making it a great source to combat zinc deficiency — because it’s essential to maintain immune function.

It helps us ward off diseases, kill bacteria and protect the function of our cell membranes. Zinc is also a key structural component for a slew of hormone receptors and proteins that contribute to healthy, balanced mood and immune function.

A 2014 report points out that Aloe Vera is being studied for its uses in dentistry; this is because it has proved to be an antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antifungal plant, and it’s very good in building up the immune system without causing allergic reactions or side effects. It’s gaining popularity because it’s completely natural — and it’s being called a miracle plant.

8. Provides Antioxidants and Reduces Inflammation

We know that inflammation is at the root of most diseases. Aloe Vera provides an amazing number of vitamins and minerals that help reduce inflammation and fight free radical damage.

Vitamin A, for instance, plays a critical role in maintaining healthy vision, neurological function and healthy skin because it’s an antioxidant that reduces inflammation. Vitamin C is another important component found in aloe vera; it protects the body from cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, eye disease and even skin wrinkling.Vitamin E benefits include being a powerful antioxidant that reduces free radical damage, fights inflammation and helps naturally slow the aging of cells.

These antioxidant properties are also helpful when you’re exposed to cigarette smoke or UV rays from sunlight — they protect the skin from skin cancer and fight skin inflammation after exposure to the sun. Aloe vera can also naturally treat acne and eczema since it helps the healing process in the skin. Bradykinase, also present in aloe vera, helps reduce excessive inflammation when applied to the skin topically.

9. Recommended for helping with Diabetes

Some evidence in humans and animals suggests that aloe vera is able to alleviate the chronic hyperglycemia and perturbed lipid profile that are common among people with diabetes and are major risk factors for cardiovascular complications. This add natural diabetes cure to the list of Aloe Vera benefits.

In two related clinical trials, 72 diabetic women without drug therapy were administered one tablespoon of aloe vera gel or a placebo for six weeks. Blood glucose and serum triglyceride levels were significantly decreased with aloe vera treatment. In the second trial, the effects of Aloe Vera gel or placebo in combination with glibenclamide, a commonly prescribed antidiabetic medication, were investigated; this, too, resulted in significant reductions in blood glucose and serum triglyceride concentrations in the aloe vera group.

10. May Reduce Cholesterol Levels

Medical studies have shown that beta (β) sitosterol can bring high cholesterol levels in your blood under control. This substance is a type of sterol with a similar chemical structure that stops cholesterol absorption. It even helps to reduce overall levels in your body, hence promotes good cardiovascular health!


Aloe Vera History & Interesting Facts

Aloe Vera was officially listed as a purgative and skin protectant by the U.S. pharmacopoeia in 1820 and was clinically used in the 1930s for the treatment of radiotherapy burns to the skin and mucous membranes. In 2004, the value of the Aloe Vera industry was estimated to be $125 million for the cost of the raw Aloe material, and $110 billion for finished Aloe-containing products.

Today, cosmetic companies commonly add sap or other derivatives from Aloe Vera to products, such as makeup, soaps, sunscreens, incense, shaving cream, shampoos, tissues and moisturizers. Commercially, Aloe Vera is used as an ingredient in yoghurts, beverages and desserts. Extracts of Aloe Vera are used as a fresh food preservative and for water conservation in small farms.

For the greatest health benefit, choose only a good quality Aloe Vera brand like Forever Aloe Vera.

ARE YOU GIVING YOUR BODY THE NUTRITION IT NEEDS?

External stress and the demands of life affect virtually everyone in today’s society.

Stress depletes critical nutrients and creates a higher demand for specific vitamins and minerals. But in today’s fast-paced, fast-food world, few of us eat the way we should, and our nutritional needs become less of a priority.

In fact, studies show that over 90% of Americans are deficient in at least one vitamin or mineral, and only about 9% of the American population consumes the recommended five servings of fruits and vegetables daily.

Making healthy food choices and getting enough of the right nutrients in our diets might sound overwhelming with so much going on in our busy lives, but it can start with a few simple changes:

Mix it up

Each food has a different nutrient profile and provides different benefits, but most of us eat the same foods each day. To mix it up, try one new food each day.

Add more color

The various nutrients found naturally in foods and are responsible for giving foods their unique colors. The more colors you can add to your diet, the greater the variety of nutrients you will receive.

Increase your activity

The more you move the better you will feel. Exercise improves mood, and it doesn’t have to mean hours at the gym. Start simple: Take the stairs instead of the elevator, park at the far end of the parking lot when you shop, or walk down the hall at the office to talk to your co-worker instead of calling or instant messaging.

Forever Daily® provides a balanced formulation of vitamins and minerals combined with natural antioxidants and phytonutrients to help you meet your daily nutritional needs.

Vitamins and minerals are essential to the normal functioning of our bodies. They support growth, vitality and general well being. Almost every system in the body utilizes vitamins and minerals, but the body also needs the antioxidants and phytonutrients that come from fruits and vegetables.

Forever Daily’s proprietary FVX20 fruit and vegetable blend contains fruits and vegetables from all five food color categories, ensuring a variety of vitamins and minerals. By including these whole food sources, Forever Daily® not only provides the essential vitamins, but all the other co-factors and phytonutrients the body needs. Forever Daily® also includes a unique Advanced Cellular Support Blend. This blend includes important nutrients like bioflavonoids and key cellular nutrients like CoQ10 and alphal-lipoic acid that enhance health at the cellular level.

Vitamins combined with all their essential nutrients help your body produce energy more effectively, help fight stress, support immune function and provide the essential nutrients for optimal health.

It is not only critical to get enough of the nutrients your body needs each day, but it is also important that the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients are balanced with each other. Each vitamin and mineral in Forever Daily® is hand selected and placed in balanced amounts to maximize absorption and optimize the synergistic effects of the formula. These effects are further enhanced by ensuring all the important nutrients and phytonutrients are provided through the proprietary FVX20 fruit and vegetable blend and the Advanced Cellular Support Blend.
