Keep your children safe from toxic chemicals

Have you noticed in recent years that people are developing diseases earlier and earlier in life? When I was a kid, I’d never heard of childhood diabetes. I didn’t know anyone with cancer who wasn’t elderly. I had heard of autism, but didn’t know anyone autistic. None of my friends had food allergies. Yet today, I can list at least a handful of children I know personally who suffer from one or more of these conditions. And the numbers multiply annually.

How is this possible, with all the knowledge we have today? And yet it is happening, despite all the amazing medical breakthroughs of the past 30 years.

Unfortunately, with good science comes bad science. Chemicals can now be created in a lab to do astounding things. Some of these things are helpful. Some are downright dangerous. Some of these chemicals preserve our food, for example, which seems like a good thing, because they keep harmful bacteria from growing. But we now know that preservatives are not so good for us once we eat them.

Lots of healthful changes can be made to minimize exposure to toxins in our environment, our food and our possessions. But toxins are everywhere! Where do you begin? Here’s just one small thing you can do for your children: don’t let them use personal care products that include harmful substances. And if you plan to have children in the future, don’t use such products yourself.

Don’t just take my word for it. Check out this article from titled Teens and Toxic Skin Care: A Parent’s Responsibility.

If you are looking for a green, toxin-free skin care option, please consider Glimpse™, the new intuitive skin care line by XanGo®. Not only is it free from harmful chemicals, it is also very good nutrition for the skin. It’s gentle enough for children, it’s wonderful for teenage skin conditions, and it’s anti-aging, too. Everybody’s covered!

Three reasons to take a closer look at XanGo®

1. Protection

More doctors and researchers every day are coming to the conclusion that most chronic diseases have their roots in either inflammation or oxidation or both. In fact, Time magazine featured a cover story revealing this link between inflammation and disease back in 2004. (See the cover. Read the story.)

The New England Journal of Medicine’s website features a long list of articles on inflammation and its deleterious effects. A quick search reveals articles discussing atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease, cardiovascular disease, obesity, myocardial infarction, stroke, heart failure, influenza, rheumatoid arthritis and cancer. And that’s just the first page of results.

Searching the NEJM site for oxidation uncovers articles about preeclampsia, atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease, hypertension, oxidative stress, perinatal complications, mitochondrial respiratory-chain diseases, vasculitis, macular degeneration and uremia. Again, just the first page, listing 1-20 of 610 results!

But here’s the good news: mangosteen is a powerhouse anti-inflammatory and a potent antioxidant! And while scores of people have enjoyed relief from existing pain and illness by drinking Xango, how much better to start BEFORE these diseases take hold? Remember the wise old saying – an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Don’t wait until you have a diagnosis…

2. Preservation

Name one area of your body you’d like to preserve as you age. If you thought of your face first, you’re in good company. Your face is what others notice most and it is the target of the vast majority of the anti-aging products on the market today.

But while many skin care products tout a few “natural” active ingredients, they also employ a plethora of dangerous chemicals to do everything from emulsifying their formulas to helping your skin absorb the products better. Unfortunately, even if the products seem to work on the outside, these chemicals can do serious harm to your insides. Birth defects, hormonal imbalances, brain and nervous system damage and even cancer are just the beginning of the long list of side effects of some of these toxic chemicals.

Of course, you could use olive oil to soften your skin and cucumber slices on your eyes to reduce puffiness. But for serious anti-aging results, you need more.

What if you could have both? What if there was a skin care line that not only included powerful natural ingredients that worked wonders to improve your skin, but also offered a green, toxin-free formula that kept you (as well as the environment) safe from unwanted side effects?

You guessed it. Xango’s Glimpse™ is that skin care line.

You want beautiful skin, but you need to preserve your health, too. What have you got to lose by giving Glimpse a try?

3. Profit

Unless you live under a rock, you must be aware of the current economic situation – not just locally, but globally. Let’s face it; it’s a scary time. Most people have felt the crunch in one area or another. Many are finding it increasingly difficult to make ends meet. Some have lost their jobs. Others have lost their homes.

Even if you are among the fortunate ones who are still hanging in there, perhaps you have considered taking on a part-time job or trying to find an additional source of income. After all, none of us knows how long this will last. And what if your job is the next to disappear? Do you have a Plan B?

Once again, XanGo can help by paying you for word-of-mouth advertising! By simply sharing the products and the business opportunity with others, you can create a stream of residual income that can relieve the stress of rising prices and an unstable job market.

XanGo is now gearing up for its second huge wave of growth. Would you like to ride the wave? Don’t wait. Visit our website today for more information!

Welcome, Glimpse™!

This is an exciting time in the world of skin care! A brand new topical skin nutrition product has just been launched that is expected to take the skin care world by storm! It’s called Glimpse™ and it was created by XanGo®, the company that introduced the health-packed little fruit called the mangosteen to the nutritional marketplace.

Just like XanGo juice, the Glimpse line of products contains the potent mangosteen, amplified by an advanced biofermentation technique that originated in Japan. Glimpse also includes other nutrient-rich botanicals, all cold-processed to preserve and optimize the natural phytonutrients, as well as protecting the environment.

Glimpse is also an intuitive product, featuring formulas that are able to adjust to the changing needs of your skin. It is gentle, yet powerful, and best of all, it does not include the harmful chemicals used in most personal care products!

Glimpse is available in two systems: one for normal to dry skin and one for normal to combination skin. You can also enjoy all of the products by ordering the complete system.

Dan and I have been using Glimpse for several weeks now and we have both seen improvements in our skin. Stay tuned for before and after pictures in future posts!

Introducing the mangosteen

For centuries, the healers of Southeast Asia have been using a delicious local fruit called mangosteen to treat various diseases. The teas, poultices and ointments made from the deep purple pericarp (or rind) of the mangosteen contain a powerhouse antioxidant family called xanthones, which offer potent anti-inflammatory properties, as well.

Despite abundant scientific research proving the mangosteen and her xanthones beneficial by prestigious universities and researchers world wide, it is only now that this powerful botanical is being brought to market in a skin care line called Glimpse™!

The concentrated anti-aging properties of the mangosteen, having been harnessed by exclusive Japanese bio-fermentation technology, are highly bio-available as part of this clean, cold-processed skin care line that does not contain any of the harmful chemicals found in most personal care products.

Brought to you by XanGo®, the same company that created the very first mangosteen juice supplement, as well as the only whole-food multivitamin/mineral supplement containing mangosteen, this intuitive skin care line also features self-adjusting formulas specially designed to meet your skin’s ever-changing needs.
