Benefits of Aloe Vera

Chances are, you're familiar with using aloe vera on skin that's been left out in the sun too long. However, Aloe Vera's nutritional and healing properties are beneficial to the skin on a daily basis as well.

Why we use organic aloe vera juice as a base:

Research has shown aloe vera has the unique ability to regenerate cellular membranes and produce fibroblast cells (responsible for collagen production) up to eight times faster than normal cell reproduction.

It has been proven that aloe vera can soak into the skin almost four times faster than water. This allows other nutrients and botanical actives to penetrate far deeper into the underlying layers of the skin for optimal results.

Contained in Aloe Vera are almost 20 amino acids, calcium, magnesium, enzymes, vitamins, polysaccharides, nitrogen and other components that work together to heal and nourish your skin.

Aloe Vera increases the circulation of blood, which in turn facilitates an easier oxygen exchange between the cells. Aloe vera even has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal effects!

Health Tips & Beauty Tricks: Stay Hydrated

Summer's heating up! Beat the heat by staying hydrated!

Research has shown that we begin to feel thirsty after we have lost 28% (the equivalent of two quarts) of the average 7 quarts of water in our bodies. At this point, it's important to rehydrate yourself or risk damage to your circulatory system.

But why wait until you begin to feel the effects of dehydration?

Sipping water through out the day will keep you hydrated and enable your body to flush out all of the toxins that are accumulating in your blood. The proper amount of water to drink a day varies per person, but the bottom line is this- Drink enough water so that you can urinate two quarts a day.
