Five Amazing Liquid Antioxidants for a Healthy Life

Antioxidants are important for our bodies because they stop free radicals and prevent accelerated aging. The major sources of free radicals include: X-rays, pesticides and herbicides from non organic foods,  food processing chemicals, environmental contaminants, UV rays, cigarette smoke, alcohol consumption, etc. Unstable molecules in free radicals seek to become stable by attacking our bodies’ DNA and destroying cells.

The result includes health risks like cancers and degenerative diseases. To counter all the pollutants in the air, it is simply not enough to eat a balanced diet full of antioxidants. For a healthy life we need antioxidants. Antioxidants in capsule form are also effective but should you have a problem swallowing capsules, liquid antioxidants are the best next solution.  Antioxidants fight inflammation and oxidation, the two factors that cause diseases and aging. The best antioxidants should make you look more beautiful and protect you from diseases. Try these five amazing liquid antioxidants to help prevent disease and aging.

Krill oil
This is water based krill oil which has an orange taste. Unlike liquid fish oils it can dissolve in water and has no fishy taste. It can be blended with fruit juices or vitamin waters. Apart from being a source of omega three krill oil has a very powerful antioxidant called astaxanthin. Being a fat soluble supplement It Is easily absorbed with krill oil.  Its antioxidant potency is 6000 times stronger than vitamin C and 550 times stronger than vitamin E. As a carotenoid, it has anti- inflammatory benefits as well as protecting your skin from UV radiation.

Natural astaxanthin is the most potent antioxidant because it stays active eve after releasing its free electrons. Unlike most antioxidants which are depleted after transferring their free electrons.  Try Viva Labs 100% Pure Cold Pressed Antartica Krill oil.  Viva Labs Krill Oil is harvested from the fresh and toxin-free waters of the Antarctic, we can guarantee that our krill oil is free of metals, toxins and other contaminants. Moreover, our manufacturing facilities are FDA-approved and adhere to strict GMP standards.

GNLD’s Tre’
While other liquid antioxidants are just expensive fruit juices, Tre’ is a super juice with a lot of nutritional benefits. Its proprietary blend of dark berries such as bilberry, cranberry, blackcurrants, blue berry and elder berry, help the body to fight oxidation and inflammation. It also contains a mixture of Acai berry and green tea. This great tasting combination has 20mg of alpha-lipoid acid which is an equivalent of 5 cups of spinach. It helps the body fight disease and prevents aging.

Tea
Tea is the most popular beverage drunk around the world. Whether it’s taken black or green, they both contain almost the same amount of antioxidants. Flavonoids, the antioxidants found in tea, make tea a very healthy drink. Taking four cups of tea in a day, is rehydrating not dehydrating, unless they are all consumed in one sitting. Freshly brewed tea, which has steeped for four to five minutes produces the most amount of Flavonoids. Tea can impede absorption of iron it should therefore be taken between meals with lemon or milk.

Acai Berry oil 
Acai berries are high in antioxidants. They are therefore included in beauty products and cosmetics as Acai oil. Acai oils when processed and stored well retain its high anti oxidative properties. It is the safest topical oil used in anti-aging therapies.  Try Botanical Beauty Acai Berry oil for face body and hair.

Acia Berry oil is rich in essential fatty acids such as Omega 3, Omega 6, and Omega 9. There are also many other vitamins such as B1, B2, B3, E, and C, minerals such as Phosphorus, Calcium, and Potassium, as well as polyphenols, anthocyanins, and phytosterols. Acai Berry oil helps to heal dry, chapped and cracked skin, balances the moisture in skin, and conditions hair well.

Liquid Dark chocolate 
Chocolate with a high cocoa content of 60 % has antioxidants that lower blood pressure. The darker the chocolate, the lower the sugar content.  Love the taste of chocolate?  Try Stevia Sweetleaf liquid dark chocolate drops.  You can add them to your coffee, tea, smoothies, yogurt,and more.  Add to cold or hot beverages.  Traditional chocolate is loaded with carbs, fat, & calories but stevia chocolate has 0!

Surya Brasil Sapien Women Haircare Collection Review

Founded in 1995, Surya Brasil has been operating successfully in Brazil supplying cosmetics founded on a vision of internal beauty.  Their collections include: Amazonia Preciosa, Sapien Men, Sapien Women, Color Fixation, Vegan Lip Balms and their very popular Surya Henna Hair Coloring Creams and Powders.  Their also Ecocert, Certified VeganPETA cruelty-free and Fair Trade Certified.  The Sapien Women product line was developed for daily use and includes shampoo, conditioner, leave-in combing cream and split end repair cream, all of which feature fragrances made from natural coconut and mango extracts.

Their also a member of The Compact for Safe Cosmetics and Organic Trade Association.  The Sapien Women line offers more sustainable products and uses packaging made from Braskem's Green Plastic, who works to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.  Recently I had the opportunity to try their new Sapien Women Haircare collection.  Here is my review.  


Sapien Women Shampoo $31.99
Sapien Women Shampoo is made from organic Amazonian ingredients and includes Pracaxi oil, essential amino acids, proteins from the Amaranth plant and Aloe Vera to hydrate, condition and add healthy shine. This shampoo does not contain sulfates, salt, parabens or mineral oil.   It also has none of the other bad stuff including BHT, EDTA, synthetic fragrances, GMOs, phthalates, alcohol or silicon.  The shampoo is a bit gooey and looks like melted honey with a fabulous natural fragrance similar to mango or a tropical fruit.  The smell is natural, light but not over powering.  It thoroughly and effectively cleans your hair with no weighing down and leaves it feeling moisturised at the same time.

Sapien Women Conditioner $26.59
Sapien Women Conditioner hydrates the hair while controlling frizz and contains rich organic ingredients from the Amazon like Uccuba and Murumuru butters, Pracaxi, Macadamia and organic Buriti Oils, Amaranth Protein, Vitamin E and Aloe Vera that drench the hair with intense moisture, shine and softness.  This shampoo does not contain sulfates, salt, parabens or mineral oil.   It also has none of the other bad stuff including BHT, EDTA, synthetic fragrances, GMOs, phthalates, alcohol or silicon.  It also has a luscious mango, tropical fruit smell.  The conditioner leaves your hair super soft with lots of shine.  I found this conditioner is very potent so a little goes a long way.  

Sapien Women Leave in Conditioner $16.69
Sapien Women Leave-in Conditioner is made with Amazonian Ucuuba and Murumuru butters, Pracaxi, Macadamia and Buriti oil as well as Amaranth Protein and Vitamin E, which work together to hydrate, condition and impart health and shine to the hair. Apply to damp hair and dry. Best results follow with Sapien Women Split End Repair.   It also has none of the other bad stuff including BHT, EDTA, synthetic fragrances, GMOs, phthalates, alcohol or silicon.

The leave in is one of my favorite products from the line!  I love the smell soooo good like the shampoo and conditioner.  A little goes a long way.  It won't leave your hair looking or feeling greasy or oily, and leaves your hair looking soft and silky.  This is hard to find with a natural product these days.  The shampoo and conditioner are gone and I still use this.  I highly recommend the leave in conditioning cream.

Sapien Women Split End Repair $32.79
Suitable for all hair types, Sapien Women Split end Repair softens and repairs split ends without sticky residue or product build up. This natural and organic styling aid contains organic oils of Argan, Pracaxi, Madadamia and Buriti as well as Vitamin E and plant-based silicon derived from rapeseed (Brassica napus) a bright yellow flowering member of the mustard or cabbage family (Brassicaceae).  
As with all of their products, it's free of sulfates, salt, parabens or mineral oil.  It's also free of BHT, EDTA, synthetic fragrances, GMOs, phthalates, alcohol or silicon. This is another favorite product.  It gives amazing shine and protection but doesn't look greasy or oily.  As with the conditioner and leave in, you only need a small skirt and you're good to go!  
Overall I loved trying this new, natural and organic haircare line from Surya Brasil.  All products are free of bad for you toxic ingredients and have healthier ingredients in their place which I love!  To learn more about Surya Brasil please visit their website at: http://shopsuryabrasil.com/.  You can also purchase their products at Amazon.com.
