The Fertility Nut n’ Spice Smoothie – Drink it for Your Skin, Your Hormones, Immunity, Anti-Cancer, and Anti-Aging

This drink is not for the faint of heart so if you are one of those people who aren’t capable of making a big effort for beauty, youth and immunity – stop reading now.

I drink this concoction about 5x a week and yes, I gag a little during the process.  My baby always watches me with great fascination while I glug back this nut-spice smoothie.  But ladies, I glow, I shine and I exude health and vitality… And I might be able to crank out a baby when I am 60!

You will need a coffee bean grinder – about $20 (worldwide).  Below, are the ingredients and their amazing benefits.

Put a spoonful of curcumin/turmeric, nutritional yeast, cinnamon and wheat germ in a large glass.  Grind all your seeds (make certain to keep your seeds ‘oil-ripe’ by preserving in the fridge) and put in the glass.  Add water and stir vigorously.  Stir before every sip as well.  Swallow.   Because you have ground the seeds they will be more quickly and easily absorbed and digested by the body.  Remember, eating solids causes the body to produce stress hormones in order to break down food…

After drinking this drink you will promptly lose your appetite for the entire day.  So it is an excellent nutrition-diet (and may have laxative effects on some). Continue reading

One of the magical vitamins I have been taking for years is magnesium glycinate.  My motivation was anti-aging but, the below article by Dr. Mercola will explain why magnesium is important for SO MANY other reasons.

You don’t hear much about magnesium, yet an estimated 80 percent of Americans are deficient in this important mineral and the health consequences of deficiency are significant. One reason could be because magnesium, like vitamin D, serves so many functions it’s hard to corral.

Few nutrients possess the remarkable and diverse benefits of magnesium. It is the fourth most abundant mineral in cells after calcium, phosphorus and potassium. Magnesium is found in our bones, muscles, blood, and other tissues. It is needed by the body for energy production, fat and protein synthesis, muscle relaxation, nervous system function and calcium metabolism.

According to US Department of Agriculture data, two out of every three Americans don’t meet average daily intake requirements for magnesium, which are 300 milligrams (mg) to 420 mg daily for adults. In addition, many people have a magnesium deficiency due to stress, genetics or a medication, such as a diuretic (usually taken to control blood pressure). As a consequence, these people face an increased risk for health problems. Maintaining adequate levels of magnesium can help reduce muscle cramps, stabilize blood sugar, lower the risk for heart disease, ease migraine headaches, strengthen bones and slow the aging process.
