Will your sunscreen protect you?

Summer's coming in the Western hemisphere and with that comes a lot more sunny days and more outdoor activities.  With that in mind, we need to keep our skin protected from the threat of skin cancer. If you can, limit your sun exposure time and protect your body.

While commercial sunscreens may contain chemicals that are not necessarily "healthy" for the body, using them when you're spending a lot of time under sun may be safer than using nothing at all.  We found a great guide to use for comparing the toxicity of various sunscreen ingredients. Check it out here - The Trouble With Ingredients in Sunscreens.

There are also natural alternatives available. Read about them in Healthhub by Sunwarrior.  You can X2O from Xooma Worldwide adds over 72 trace minerals to your water and helps your body stay alkaline, resisting the harmful damage caused by free radicals.
also always protect yourself by keeping your body hydrated at the cellular level with a mineral-rich alkaline water supplement.

It's also important to maintain a diet rich in healthy fats and antioxidants. If you choose to supplement your diet, we recommend taking Omega 3/75 from Xooma Worldwide and the flavor-rich antioxidant drink mix, Blast, also from Xooma Worldwide. Omega 3/75 is a one-of-a-kind, ultra-pure formula that contains a high ration of EPA & DHA (Essential Fatty Acids) along with shark liver oil & squalene for immune system support. Blast, on the other hand, is natural fruit/vegetable flavoring with a high ORAC value and low-glycemic value content. Both work to keep your body's immune support system strong and fight off damage caused by things like free radicals.

Check these suggestions out. Keep yourself safe this summer season as you enjoy your time outdoors.

What’s really behind our food addictions

If you have not been paying attention to the product labels on the packaged foods you purchase, here are some good reasons why you should start doing it. Check out the article republished here:

Still drinking sodas? Then read this...

The human body is designed to consist of at least 70% water. Unfortunately, many of today's popular drinks such as coffee and sodas are a major factor that contribute to dehydration and unhealthy acidic conditions within the body. Do you know how much water it takes to neutralize the acid in just one soda?

It can take up to 30 glasses of purified water to neutralize the acid from one 12 oz. soda. Each time you choose to drink an acidic beverage, your body uses its own mineral buffers to protect you from these dangerous acids and maintain your healthy blood pH level of 7.35-7.45.

Is Bottled Water the Right Answer?

It's clear that while consuming water is important, consuming purified water is vital. And while bottled water does provide more purity, most brands of bottled water are still “acidic” to the body (because their pH readings fall below 7) and don't offer optimal hydration due to the lack of minerals and electrolytes. As a result, many health experts often refer to today's bottled waters as “dead water.” For example, reports are now surfacing about health problems from long-time consumers of distilled water – directly attributable to the lack of minerals in their water and in their body.

So the right answer is combining purified water with an X2O sachet, to create all the benefits of more energized, alkalized and mineralized water...which means more health benefits for you!
