Natural Wax ...Say What?

Have you seen my posts and been wondering "what does she mean by "natural waxes"???"  Well check out this comparison picture below!  

Now tell me why you want to burn/melt this in your home? 

I am hoping that it was of those cases of "once you know better, you do better", which I TOTALLY understand.  I didn't know that all the "other companies" were out there pitching their products as "non-toxic"  just because they barely qualify to do so.  This is why you need to always do your research people!!

I did some research of my own...not a tonne, cause it didn't take me long to realize I was going to burn/melt these paraffin wax based products in my home...but here is was I found, just of Wikipedia.


The simplest paraffin molecule is that of methane,. Heavier members of the series, such as octane, C8H18, and mineral oil appear as liquids at room temperature. The solid forms of paraffin, called paraffin wax, are from the heaviest molecules from C20H42 to C40H82

Paraffin, or paraffin hydrocarbon, is also the technical name for an alkane in general, but in most cases it refers specifically to a linear, or normal alkane — whereas branched, or isoalkanes are also called isoparaffins. It is distinct from the fuel known in the United Kingdom, Ireland and South Africa as paraffin oil or just paraffin, which is called kerosene in most of the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

So for the most part - it's toxic poisons.  When you look up safety & hazerdous guidlines, most of these are highly toxic and FLAMMABLE!  

Don't panic...if you're reading this, obviously everything has worked out for the better and you're not dead due to burning down your home, or inhaling to many of these toxins.  

Also don't worry that you won't be able to have those wonderful smelling, and beautiful candle lit ambiances in your home anymore because there is an alternative!

The Sun & Your Skin

There has been some discussion, and there is also some controversy about very high SPF numbers and just how much more protection they provide. As you will learn below from the percentages of protection of the different SPF numbers, the difference in UV ray protection in SPF numbers becomes minimal as the number increases past about 30 or 40. The difference of protection between SPF 15 and SPF 30 is great (5%), but the difference between SPF 30 and SPF 40 is minimal (0.5%).
Besides protecting you from sunburn, sunscreens help to prevent other skin damage related to sun exposure, such as premature aging and pre-cancerous growths.
Using sunscreen is an effective way to protect your skin from the sun’s damaging UV rays. However, since sunscreen cannot block all UV rays and many people do not apply it correctly, you should always practice additional sun safe behaviors such as wearing protective clothing and seeking shade when possible.
SPF... What’s it All About?
SPF stands for “Sun Protection Factor.”
Always wear a sunscreen with an SPF 15 or higher!
SPF was developed to describe the amount of protection that a sunscreen provides. No sunscreen can protect your skin from all of the UV rays, but a higher SPF number indicates protection from more rays.
The SPF number tells you how much longer you can stay outside without burning while wearing the sunscreen product as opposed to not wearing any sun protection product. SPF measures “time to burn.”
SPF Math
SPF Number x Time to Burn Without Sun Protection = Time to Burn while wearing sunscreen*
     *assuming that sunscreen is applied properly
Example: If your skin would burn in 10 minutes in the afternoon sun without any sun protection, and you applied a sunscreen with an SPF 15, you would have 15 x 10 = 150 minutes (2.5 hours) before you would burn.
Percentage of Protection from damaging UV rays:
SPF 15 = 92%
SPF 30 = 97%
SPF 40 = 97.5%
Sunscreen Basic Info
Always choose and use a sunscreen that is:
·         An SPF 15 or higher
·         Broad-spectrum (protects from both UVA and UVB rays)
·         Waterproof or Sweatproof
Application tips
·         Apply the sunscreen generously to all exposed skin – most people do not use enough sunscreen and therefore do not get the maximum protection.
·         Reapply every two hours, and even more frequently if you are sweating, getting wet, or are in a windy climate.
·         Apply 30 minutes before going outside.
The “DL” of Sunscreen:
·         Sunscreen is a lotion formulated with unique chemical components to absorb UV light.
·         When sunscreen is applied to the skin, the chemical molecules form an invisible, protective layer on the skin that protects from penetrating UV rays.
·         All sunscreens protect from UVB rays, but only “Broad-Spectrum” sunscreens protect from both UVB and UVA rays.
o    UVB rays affect the top layers of the skin and are responsible for Burning.
o    UVA rays affect the lower layers of the skin and are responsible for Aging.
·         Remember to always buy a sunscreen that is broad-spectrum!
The Confusing Part About Sunscreen
Many people think that SPF values can be added. Actually, SPF values cannot be added – if you apply a sunscreen of 8 and then one of 12, you will not have the protection of an SPF 20. You will only be getting the protection of an SPF 12.
Reapplication only helps to ensure that you have the amount of protection and time before you burn that you calculated when you first applied sunscreen that day. Since no sunscreens can protect your skin from all UV rays, some rays will get through.
After your calculated “time to burn” has expired, your skin has absorbed all the UV rays that it can handle before it will start to burn. Even if you reapply sunscreen at this point, you will still burn because some rays will get through to your skin and your skin has already been saturated with UV. Therefore, you need to get out of the sun at this point and let your skin rest before exposing it to more rays.
Reapplication only ensures that you have your original time outside – sunscreen can wear off because of sweat, wind, and other factors you need to reapply in order to be protected.
So what’s the lesson to be learned about sunscreen? If you know that you will be in the sun for a long period of time, start with a higher-SPF sunscreen in order to have protection for the entire time that you are exposed.
Sunscreen vs. Sunblock
·         Sunscreen contains chemicals that absorb UV rays before they damage the skin and sunblocks contain particles that physically block UV rays from reaching the skin.
·         Sunscreen needs to be applied about 30 minutes before sun exposure so that the chemicals have time to soak into your skin and form a layer of protection.
·         Sunblock does not need to be applied before going into the sun – it will begin to work as soon as you rub it on because it sits on top of the skin.
Environmental Factors Related to Sunscreen Performance
Certain conditions can actually increase the intensity of UV rays and put you at greater risk for skin damage. These conditions may also decrease the time that sunscreens keep you safe in the sun:
·         Higher altitudes
·         Low latitudes
·         Clear, sunny days
·         Mid-day sunshine (10am-3pm)
When any of these factors are present, you should be sure to wear a sunscreen with an SPF 15 or higher and re-apply your sunscreen every 2 hours – or better yet, minimize UV exposure by wearing cover-up clothing, a hat, sunglasses or goggles, and seeking shade when possible.
Sunscreen Use
·         Always make sure that your sunscreen is SPF 15 or higher, “broad-spectrum,” and waterproof or sweatproof.
·         A generous amount of sunscreen should be applied to all exposed skin (do not forget your ears and the back of your neck.) In the summer, it is recommended to use one ounce of sunscreen – the amount to fill a shot glass – to cover your exposed skin.
·         Allow at least 30 minutes for your sunscreen to absorb before you head into the sun so that the chemicals can form a protective shield.
·         Be sure to reapply another layer of sunscreen if you will be in the sun for more than 2 hours throughout the day under intense UV conditions, and especially when it’s windy or you’re sweating.
Incorporating Sunscreen Into Your Daily Routine
You can make sunscreen application easy to remember by making it a part of your day-to-day routine, like brushing your teeth. Keep a bottle of sunscreen with your other toiletries and apply it every day.
Women are lucky since many lotions and make-up products now include sun protection with an SPF of 15. Seek out these products and you can easily protect your skin from damaging UV rays.
Types of Sunscreen
Some people complain that certain types of sunscreens make them break-out, are too oily, or cause allergies. Improvements in sunscreen over the years have eliminated many of these problems. If you have sensitive skin, look for sunscreens that are:
·         PABA-free (PABA is a chemical that some people are allergic to – most sunscreens are now PABA-free.)
·         Noncomedogenic or oil-free sunscreens (will not clog pores.)
·         Sprays, lotions, gels, etc. – sunscreen comes in many different forms to suit various preferences

Paraffin Candles Are Destroying Your Home & Health!

Most of us who burn candles assume that they are safe – aside from the obvious danger that you can burn your home down if left unattended.  Please be sure that when burning candles that you follow all safety procedures to keep you, your family, and your home safe from being destroyed.

Personally we burn candles in our home for two reasons.  One being that we like to be able to set the mood with a certain scent, and make our home smell wonderful.  The other reason is because we have smokers in our home (I know, I know we focus on healthy living, yet we have smokers in our home?! Trust me, we’re working on getting this home to be a smoke free home too!)

Now here is where you need to pay attention!

Did you know that most candles are made from the sludge in the bottom of a barrel of oil which is bleached and texturized with a chemical called acrolein?

They're called paraffin candles and burning one puts all the same horrible toxins and carcinogens (cancer causing agents) into the air in your home that burning diesel fuel in your home would.

The National Candle Association estimates that more than 7 million people in the US alone burn candles every year.

But testing by the EPA has confirmed that those candles, and the smoke and soot they give off, contain several dangerous chemicals in significant quantities. These chemicals include known or probable carcinogens, neurotoxins and reproductive toxins.

The American Lung Association also warns that burning paraffin candles can emit toxins (in measurable amounts) into your home's air.

It might shock you to learn that after burning just a few paraffin candles in your home, the overall effect on the quality of the air in your home could be worse than the air in major cities like Los Angeles! (Can you say DISGUSTING!?)

Not only is your health affected, but the health of your pets and children as well.

Cathy Flanders who has been at the forefront of addressing health and safety issues involving candles says, "With the current 'candle-craze' and increased candle burning in homes, expectant Moms need to be aware of the fact that the emissions from some candles are toxic, reproductive toxins, neuro-toxins and/or carcinogens. This has been a growing cause for concern for the EPA and children's health agencies."

And it might hit your pocket book soon too. Not only is the price of oil spiralling out of control, but you might have a nasty surprise the next time you go to renew your homeowners insurance.

The NIA Group (Insurance and Financial Services) lists the following problems with paraffin candles in an article on their website:

1) Reduces the internal air quality in your home.

2) Damage by particulate deposits on interior and exterior walls, carpets, furniture, appliances, window treatments, floors and other surfaces.

3) Contributes to health problems from inhaling particulate matter or ingesting harmful chemicals.

4) Spews hazardous chemicals that are either in the paraffin wax, the wick, or are present when paraffin wax is burned....Acetone, Benzene, Trichlorofluoromethane, Carbon Disulfide, 2-Butanone, Trichloroethane, Trichloroethene, Carbon Tetrachloride, Tetrachloroethene, Toluene, Chlorobenzene, Ethylbenzene, Styrene, Xylene, Phenol, Cresol, Cyclopentene and Lead

They go on to say...

"Another surprise is that the candle-making industry is not required to tell consumers about the ingredients used in their products, including when a wick is used which contains a lead core."

No one knows for sure if paraffin candles cause cancer, but there are at least 4 cancer-causing chemicals associated with paraffin candles.

The EPA lists these chemicals on their website:

1) Benzene (EPA classification as Group A, known human carcinogen).

2) Carbon Tetrachloride (EPA classification as Group B2 probable human carcinogen).

3) Trichloroethane (EPA classification as Group C, possible human carcinogen).

4) Toluene (EPA classification as Group B2 probable human carcinogen).

Would you burn animal fat in your home?

Most of us would answer an emphatic "No!" or "Yuck!" to that question, but like something straight out of a horror movie, you might react in horror to realize that you probably are burning animal fat in your home when you burn paraffin candles.

That's because many paraffin candles contain large amounts of animal fats to give them a more textured or rustic look.

So what's the alternative?

Naturally You is soon going to be carrying a line of gourmet candles distributed by Mia Bella
The wax they use is a proprietary blend of all-natural renewable materials, except the fragrance oils. Since there is approximately 10% fragrance oil in their candles (which may produce a very small amount of soot), they cannot be classified as 100% soot-free - no candle can unless there is no fragrance oil in it therefore making it unscented, OR  if it uses all-natural fragrance oils (which don't smell good).

Some of the surprising benefits of these alternative candles include:

* Burn with no toxins, carcinogens or choking soot.
* Burn up to 50% longer than paraffin candles.
* Cruelty-free, contain no animal fats.
* Non-toxic, biodegradable, derived from a renewable resource.
* Cleans up easily with soap and hot water.
* Better for the environment.
* Use no nasty chemicals to release fragrance.

As more and more people learn about the harmful effects of burning paraffin candles in their homes, they're substituting their candles with surprising results.

So the next time you want to create a warm, inviting, and romantic atmosphere in your home, don't destroy your home - or your health, choose an alternative to paraffin candles such as Mia Bella, as a healthy alternative.

Healthy Coffee?? You've gotta be kidding?

I know that many of you think that “coffee” and “healthy” cannot truly exist in the same sentence.  But it is true, they can, and they do!  Naturally You is one of the independent distributors of SereniGy products.  These products consist of delicious coffee, tea, and hot chocolate – with a bit of variety of “flavours” all which are HEALTHY!

How you ask? Well all of our products are infused with a Chinese herb know as “Ganoderma Lucidum”. What the heck is that?!  you wondering...well read on my friends, we’d love to inform you of this amazing herb and our amazing products!


The Ganoderma Herb is one of the world's best adaptogens. There are several distinct species of Ganoderma that are grown in various parts of the world, and Ganoderma is known to be the most desired herb for its medicinal properties. Ganoderma is commonly called "The King of Herbs". Ganoderma is native to the mountains of China where it has grown and been used for over four thousand years and is commonly known as "Ling Zhi". SereniGy has developed a proprietary blend of the world's purest form of 100% Certified Organic Ganoderma.  We blend the most valuable Ganoderma species into our beverages, capsules, and other products making daily use convenient and effective for the consumer.


Using the Ganoderma herb as raw materials for use in food, beverage and dietary supplement applications has produced health results for thousands of people in Asia over the years. Ganoderma pharmaceutical grade extracts have actually been used throughout Asia for a variety of acute health issues. The unique combination of ganoderic acids, polysaccharide complexes, antioxidants and other nutrients in the biological profile provides a wide variety of health benefits that are unmatched in the world of nutrition or herbology. For this reason, the Ganoderma Herb is highly prized and rare to find in nature. The wide variety of potential health benefits that Ganoderma makes this herb complex the best overall herb to take long term on a daily basis.

Researchers have shown that the most important active chemicals in Ganoderma belong to a group of complex sugars called polysaccharides and also oil soluble molecules called ganoderic acids or triterpenes. The many forms of polysaccharides are known for helping the immune system and balancing the chemistry of the body. Levels of these triterpenes or ganoderic acids can vary
depending upon the type of extraction used. SereniGy's 100% Certified Organic Ganoderma Blend extraction methods insures the highest quality of the Ganoderma nutrients in our products using every valuable part of the herb during the peak of its growing cycle.

Our laboratory and herbal processing facilities meet U.S. and international pharmaceutical manufacturing standards. Finished herbal extract testing is also done to measure the strength of active ingredients to insure the level of bioactive nutrients. Advanced laboratory testing has shown that some coffee beverages and other products that claim to contain Ganoderma actually contain no Ganoderma at all, and some have shown that the ganoderma used in some of these products may contain toxic heavy metals or that the source of the herb is so very weak that no true health benefit is found. These type of practices are done to cut corners in the herb industry to make money. When choosing a Ganoderma product, be sure you trust the integrity of the company to know that you have a quality product for you and your family. Our commitment at SereniGy to you is that we will provide you with the highest quality of 100% Certified Organic

4 Keys to Exceptional Health

The key to radiant health is not understanding the molecular structure of the human body, but understanding some basic principles that can guide you onto a path that allows you to make better decisions about your choices for; food, water, air, and environment.

It has become increasingly difficult to wade through mountains of claims and decipher what is the “real deal”, and what is some fake money making scam.  So before you go to the product shelves, you need to first understand the 4 key things that are required for exceptional health.

1.    Nutritional Requirements

The North American population is severely deficient in the nutrients required for good health. There are a variety of reasons, but it mainly stems from the fact that most people only eat 20 different types of foods (20 people! That is so very little when you look at the big spectrum of food out there!), and they all deliver little in the way of nutrition. If they chose to eat 20 “superfoods” it would be a radically different story. This situation is exacerbated by toxins (which you heard about in our previous blog “Daily Toxin Intake - Ewww! in our food and water which strips the few precious minerals out of our body as well creating absorption challenges.

**Please Note** Even though our physiological make-up is generally the same, what condition it is in currently is a totally different subject. For this reason, I suggest  talking to a physician who can help you assess your particular situation with various tests and questionnaires.

One thing for sure is that you want to progressively start doing the following:

1)    Choose organic whenever possible to avoid toxic substances like pesticides and herbicides. If you are on a budget, check out this video that will help you choose organic for the “dirtiest” produce.  Also, it’s a good idea to choose organic starting with the top of the food chain, such as chicken and beef.

2)    Choose a quality water filter for your home, and if you can get one that infuses natural minerals into the water, that will make a tremendous difference
over cheap filters, or worst case, tap water.

3)    Start to incorporate different foods into your diet and replace other foods with them to boost your nutrition exponentially. Choose sweet potatoes over regular potatoes, quinoa instead of white rice, spelt flour in lieu of white flour, and almond or rice milk over cow’s milk, for a few examples ;)

4)    Choose “superfoods” daily that will quickly increase your uptake of nutrients in whole form, supplements, or powders. A properly made smoothie with a “superfoods” powder can deliver more nutrition in a single serving than what some people get all week.

5)    Start juicing. A small orange, kiwi, and grapefruit will make a glass of juice rich in phytonutrients, and knock off 3 servings of fruit in one shot.

6)    Steam or lightly cook your vegetables. Do not boil them to death, or worse microwave them to the grave (sure it might be faster, but it’s also a faster way to lessen your health). This destroys the nutrition there was initially in the food.

7)    Eat your fruit and vegetables as raw as possible.

Do not feel you need to do all these at once. Start with one, and work through each of them in due time. This is the key to staying on the right path.

2.    Detoxification is Essential

The physical signs of ageing are invariably linked to the amount of toxins built up in your system. The aches and pains, illnesses, disease, and deaths can all be tied back to an unhealthy level of toxicity in that person’s body. This is why detoxification, and proper nutrition with it, is essential to true health.

There are several ways to detoxify:

1)    Consume foods that are naturally detoxifying on a daily basis. Dark green leafy vegetables, lemon, garlic, and cayenne are great places to start.

            We offer a selection of “instant” beverages that will help you Detox on a daily basis and it’s easy as a cup of healthy coffee or tea or any of our other beverages we have to offer! Check them out here:

2)    There are also several herbs and “superfoods” like chlorella that will do the trick a bit faster. Be careful as these products can be very powerful, and you don’t want to bring on a detox too quickly.

3)    Drink at least half your body weight in purified, preferably alkaline and mineral rich, water. (I know this seems like your drinking an oceans worth of water, but you can start gradually – especially those who don’t drink water much to  begin with)

4)    Do a cleanse or a fast.

       ∞      The safest way to do a fast is to simply juice your food, or blend it (smoothies), for 2-3 days. You can also eat easily digestible foods like soups and salads. The key is to give your digestive system a rest, so no animal protein, sugar, grains, dairy, beans, or legumes.

            Our ion cleanse foot soak is a great option because you don’t need to change to much of your daily diet & exercise programs to get do a cleanse.

5)    Sweat profusely.  Keep reading, we don’t mean in a disgustingly gross way! This may include a hot bath with sea salt and essential oils like lavender or chamomile, and a cup of detoxifying tea. A sauna could also do the trick if you are comfortable with it.

             We have a great contact for some fabulous sea salt & esseitial oils that make it so easy to have that relaxing bath!  Check out Pure Alternative at:

Again, do not look to do these all at once. Pick one and do it well, then move on to the next until they are all a part of your regimen.

3.    Stop the Stress

I know, I know…this one is easier said than done, but stress is extremely acidic to your body and causes all types of health issues. It’s often sneakier than the rest as we deal with it every day and don’t notice it until it’s too late. Make no mistake about it though; reducing stress is a key to your health.

Some of the best ways to reduce stress include spending time doing more things you love and less time doing things you dislike. This could mean more time with family and friends, or doing more recreational activities and exercise. It can also mean a different career path and simplifying your life.

Whatever it is that stresses you out, take steps to start reducing it or eliminate it altogether, before it’s too late.

4.    Eliminate Your EMF Exposure

An often misunderstood concept, EMF’s (electromagnetic frequencies) are everywhere. They are often emitted by everyday things we are around like; appliances, computers, cell phones, power lines, and other communication equipment. Airports are one of the worst places for EMF chaos, especially with the advent of body scanners. They are virtually unavoidable in today’s world.

Save moving to a blue zone or electronic free atmosphere, the best way to deal with EMF’s is to neutralize them. There are different ways to do this including the use of diodes and wrist bands that block EMF’s from your body. It’s amazing the energy shift many people feel when putting an effective EMF blocker on their body.

      ∞      Stay tuned to our website and blog for more information on products we provide to help block and prevent EMF’s

Now remember…Start Slowly, but Start

The purpose of this information isn’t to overwhelm you, but to empower you. Many people see the list of things they should do and quit before they ever get started. Keep in mind that getting/being healthy is an ongoing journey, and by you simply starting to do a few things right you will get positive feedback that will encourage you to keep going and
continue to make more positive changes.

Health is about focusing on the journey and making it as fun as possible so that you never stray off that path (but even when you do stray, it’s not the end of the world!).

So take your first step into your journey, start doing some things  above, and enjoy yourself!  Once your health improves, everything else will just come naturally.

In the words on Journey....Don’t stop believing! ;)

Daily Toxin Intake - Ewww!

**Thank you to the Global Healing Health Center for this information below**

I want to illustrate to you the amount of toxins that bombard us daily. For this example, we'll say that your body can effectively process and expel 1 million toxins in 24 hours. Any more than that and your body's overloaded.
The problem is we take in far more than that on a daily basis. In an average lifestyle, the following toxins may enter your body daily, that's every 24 hours.
Toxins from Air: 200,000
  • Paint Fumes
  • Air Fresheners
  • Cleaning Supplies
  • Carpet Out-Gassing
  • Fossil Fuels
  • Benzene
  • Chemtrail residue
Toxins from Water: 150,000
  • Bacteria
  • Prescription Drug Residue
  • Rocket Fuel (Perchlorate)
  • C8 (the Chemical used to make Teflon®)
  • Bisphenol-A (Toxin used in making Plastic Bottles)
Toxins from Food: 325,000
  • Fast Foods
  • Boxed Foods
  • Canned Foods
  • Processed Foods
Toxins from Beverages: 160,000
Toxins from Prescription Drugs: 180,000
  • Chemotherapy
  • Liver Toxic Glues
  • Fillers & Binders
  • Artificial Colorings
  • Synthetic Hormones
  • Synthetic Chemicals
  • Left-over Animal Parts from Meat Processing Plants
Toxins from Microbes (Parasites): 525,000
  • Bacteria
  • Yeast
  • Fungus
  • Worms
  • Amoebas
  • Viruses
  • All of these survive by feeding off of a host organism (you in this case).
  • These harmful organisms consume your vital nutrients and then deposit waste matter (massive amounts of harmful acids & toxins) back into your system.
Toxins from Physical & Emotional Stress: 200,000
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Fear
  • Stress
  • Negative emotions cause the body to over-produce stress hormones & other compounds to fight these conditions. This is dangerous because the body can damage itself in the process.
Toxins from Heavy Metals: 130,000
  • Cookware
  • Deodorant
  • Cosmetics
  • Toothpaste
  • Food & Water
  • Aluminum Cans
  • Light Bulbs
  • Vaccines
  • Mercury Dental Fillings
  • Herbal Supplements
  • Household & Auto Paints
  • Chemically-Poisoned Fish
Toxins from Radiation (Causes Cell Damage & Death): 230,000
Total: 2,100,000 toxins every 24 hours - more than twice what I've proposed as a maximum tolerance!
So basically, your 1 million-toxins-daily body is being overworked in an effort to expel these 2.1 million toxins. Many of the toxins build up in your body and wreck havoc until they are removed. The energy it takes to make this effort is often unsuccessful. Even more important, your body pulls resources from elsewhere to combat these toxins. And this constant drain of your body's valuable resources leaves you weakened and vulnerable to the diseases the toxins can generate, because the job of expelling these toxins simply cannot get done.

Now can you see what's happening inside your body every day?

You begin to get the picture. To further illustrate the point: one packet of synthetic sugar can contain more than ten thousand toxic molecules in its ingredients! These toxins bombard your intestinal lining daily. And if you don't eliminate them, they can pass through the intestinal walls into your bloodstream where they begin the disease development process.
Green living is a matter of eating a healthy organic diet and having a toxin free environment. When you consider how long you could live, don't you want to have your best health? I know I do.
One thing more I want to share with you: I used one million toxins in my example to give a simple calculation. Really, that number is very low. Toxins are everywhere and they're not just going to go away. But there are things that you can do to improve your lifestyle

A Healthier Coffee Beverages?? Doubters - read this!

Did You Know??

That regular coffee
- Contains 150-200mg of caffeine per cup
- Is high in acid, creating a Ph imbalance in the body
- You have to drink 16-18 glasses of water to neutralize the acid in 1cup of coffee
- Lowers oxygen levels in the blood
- Dehydrates your body
- Stimulates glands to produce elevated levels of Cortisol
      ~Cortisol contributes to; arthritis, obesity, diabetes, depression, anxiety, etc….
- Increases insulin production creating a blood sugar roller coaster

So now...what if….?

What if you could still enjoy a high quality, full bodied, delicious blend of coffee without the negative effects?What if there was a healthier coffee?What if it was as simple as switching brands?
What if the healthier coffee company had other beverages and supplements?

Well it’s TRUE!!!

There is now a healthier coffee. See for yourself what we have in this miraculous herb!

 “A Gourmet Healthier Coffee Beverage”
