Sugar Crash and Burn

Like it or not, the candy-coated Halloween festivities are over and November is here. If you are like me, you may or may not have over-indulged in a few too many spooky s’mores sandwiches or poisoned caramel apples. (I know how you feel … I also was under some kind of “Just One More” spell over the past few days.) This weekend is a great opportunity to consider how your general health is faring in the wake of all those enchanting treats. But don’t just stop there — take the next week to focus on adding nutritious antioxidants to your diet that will help kick any bad-health juju to the curb.

Antioxidants are a key part of helping to defend our bodies’ cells against damage. On a day-to-day basis, our bodies come into contact with a wide variety of elements that, when left to build up in excess in our bodies, can have an adverse effect on our health. Lily of the Desert’s aloe vera juices and gels are clinically proven to reduce nitrates and ammonias by 11%. Reducing these from the body will allow room for more nutrients and benefits to be taken in by the cells, helping to maintain normal balance in the body. Our Aloe Herbal Detox Formula is a special blend of certified organic aloe vera and trusted herbs that are known to aid the body in this detoxification process.

How else can you boost your antioxidant levels? Add more fruit and vegetables to your diet. The three major antioxidant vitamins are beta-carotene, vitamin C, and vitamin E, which means that when you’re in the produce section, be on the lookout for colorful fruits and vegetables, especially those with purple, blue, red, orange, and yellow hues.
