July Is National Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month

Juvenile Arthritis (JA) affects over 300,000 children a year under the age of 16.

The symptoms of juvenile arthritis are the same as adult arthritis, marked by painful joint movement, stiffness and overall inflammation throughout the body. At Youngevity®, we recommend your children use exercise, good nutrition and bone-supporting supplements to help them to create a healthy life.

On a personal note, one of the things I love about Youngevity is that health challenges are not mysterious to us. We approach everything from a nutritional standpoint: Give the body what it needs and watch it slowly (and sometimes swiftly, depending upon the person) begin to heal and repair itself.

There are few things more amazing than watching the body heal and repair itself from the inside out. If you or someone you love is suffering from arthritis, please direct them to this site and help them experience (for themselves) the joys of a body that has been consistently given the 90 essential nutrients (also known as “90 for Life“).

*NEW*: Introducing Our New Natural Mascara

It has been years in the making and now it’s finally here, Youngevity® Mineral Makeup Natural Mascara.

I had an opportunity to try this last March at our annual convention, and it is fabulous. It made my lashes look so long and luscious, and it was easy to remove. In fact, my current profile picture was taken just after my mineral makeup session.

The best part is, it does not contain any harsh chemicals, parabens, fibers, dyes, or synthetic preservatives. And for something that you use daily, so close to your eyes, that is what you really want in a mascara, right?! In addition to it being long lasting, smudge proof, and the other essentials. :)

I have already added this to my next order, and I cannot wait to start using it again. For those of you who know me, the only two makeup items I wear daily are mascara and lipstick (I currently wear Poppy™ Lipstick, Item #: 166062). Recently I saw a tweet from Star Jones saying that Celebrity Makeup Artist Sam Fine says these are the two things a girl always needs. So, apparently, I was right on point…who knew?!

(By the way, this is not an endorsement of our product by either of these individuals, it is a general makeup recommendation for looking fabulous when you walk out the door. I know you knew that, but…well…you know, crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s.)

Here is the list of Ingredients:

Distilled Water, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Organic Cera Alba (Beeswax), Vegetable Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Glyceryl Sterate, Aloe Barbardensis (Aloe) Leaf Juice, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Seed Extract, Arnica Cordifolia (Arnica) Extract, Panax Ginseng (Ginseng) Extract, Iron Oxides, Mica.

Once you’ve tried it, we would appreciate any and all feedback. Your input helps to make our products even better. And if you want to share your photos, I would be happy to post those here.

Water With Lemon? No Thanks!

If you’re like most of us, when you sit down at a restaurant, one of the first items you request is a glass of water with lemon. Now you may want to rethink that.

I was watching a recent episode of The Dr. Oz Show, featuring Chef Michael Symon discussing “Shocking Restaurant Secrets,” and what they said about lemons was startling. I had already been warned years ago to skip the lemon in the water because restaurants often do not wash the outside of the lemon, so whomever or whatever has touched it between harvest time and your restaurant plate is still present. But what Dr. Oz added to this literally made me gasp.

They tested five lemons from five different restaurants (I would presume they are in and around New York City, since that is where his show is taped), and five out of five lemons tested positive for germs, the most shocking of which was candida (candida is found only in the mouth and the vagina). Ew!!

Their suggestion was to order the lemon on the side and squeeze the juice yourself, making sure it doesn’t touch the lemon rind on its way down into your glass. Um, but you will still need to wash your hands after touching it, or at least you should (candida on the hands?!).

My Solution: I use lemon (essential) oil. I carry it with me in my purse, and pour 1 to 2 drops into my glass and it covers me for all refills during my meal. That is more than enough to help purify whatever water enters my glass and, according to our company’s essential oil expert, the oil residue from my glass will even help to purify the other water glasses it is washed with, kind of like a good deed for the day! :)

*About Lemon Oil (Citrus Limonum): Lemon can help support the body in fighting infectious diseases, especially colds and fevers. Its scent also helps to increase concentration and neutralizes unpleasant odors. Some hospitals use lemon oil to help calm frightened or depressed patients. Lemon boosts the immune system by stimulating production of white and red blood cells. Lemon oil is a must for every aromatherapy kit, as it has an uplifting fresh citrus scent, has some immediate purifying qualities, and may help to settle the digestive system. It is an agreeable fragrance the kids will love.
