JAVITA Weight Loss Coffee

“Burn + Control”,  JAVITA’S  W eight Loss Coffee

JAVITA has taken gourmet, estate-grown coffee and infused it with 2 organically grown herbs: Yerba Mate and Garcinia Cambogia. Yerba Mate acts as a metabolism booster, an appetite suppressant, a long term energy booster, and increases oxygenation to the heart and muscles. Garcinia Cambogia suppresses appetite, burns calories, builds lean muscle mass, reduces belly fat, boosts mood, helps with sleep, lowers cholesteral, and so much more…

 Garcinia Cambogia

The real superstar of  JAVITA’S  ”Burn + Control” coffee is Garcinia Cambogia …an herb with astonishing effects and health benefits. Commonly known as the tamarind fruit,  Garcinia Cambogia has recently become wildly popular, spreading from its home in Southeast Asia into a global sensation.  It  has especially gained  notice in the medical community.

The Longevity Salon.com ~ Garcinia Cambogia "The Holy Grail of Natural Weight Loss", says Dr. Oz.

“The Holy Grail of Weight Loss”

Perhaps the most famous Medical Doctor and health expert of our times, Dr. Oz, devoted an entire hour to this potent fat burner in October 2012. He highlighted the dual-action effects of Garcinia Cambogia.  First, it acts in the liver to block the enzyme that converts carbohydrates and sugar into fat. This enables our body to be burning the fat we already have stored – and enables our calories to be available to us as sustained energy throughout the day. This balanced blood sugar and energy means less spikes and crashes normally associated with food. The second way it works is in the brain, where it sends messages of satiety and decreases food cravings, especially for emotional eaters. Dr. Oz expressed his excitement about Garcinia Cambogia on the show, referring to it as “The Holy Grail of Weight Loss.”

More recently, the press has been from the public testimonials of success with Garcinia Cambogia by famous celebrities such as Rachel Ray and Kim Kardashian. The world has noticed, and now most others who have tried it are taking notice too.

  ”Drink and Shrink”

JAVITA’s visionary weight loss coffee,  Burn + Control, offers Garcinia Cambogia in the first non-pill form. This is big news, since taking Garcinia Cambogia as a pill is expensive – paying up to $15/day is a definite investment.  And it is inconvenient –  as many as 2 or 3 pills to be taken thirty minutes before every meal. Furthermore, the source and potency of the pills can be variable – which means results may definitely vary.

Garcinia Cambogia infused in coffee, on the other hand, is easy to consume; and, more importantly,  it is even more incredible than Garcinia Cambogia alone because it  combines synergistically with the coffee and the Yerba Mate …thus the potent effects of Garcinia Cambogia are boosted and amplified.

So, JAVITA’s Weight Loss Coffee is potent, it is gourmet,  it is instant, easy, and affordable. The coffee beans are estate grown in Brazil according to organic principles, and the herbs are certified organic. It  is FDA approved, and manufactured in the United States. It tastes delicious, and drinkers are having incredible results with just one or two cups a day – simply by changing their cup of coffee.

Get Your Magnesium!

magnesium-rich-foods, and why you need magnesium

Magnesium is a vital nutrient, one of the six essential minerals that the body needs in large quantities.  Revered as the “beautiful mineral” in Chinese Medicine, magnesium contributes to the manufacture of energy, cardiovascular function, and cellular reproduction. Strong bones and teeth, radiant skin, balanced hormones, a healthy nervous system, and relaxed body and mind are all made possible by sufficient magnesium in our cells. In other words, not only is magnesium anti-aging, but magnesium also helps with inflammation, sleep, depression, stress, and fatigue!

Amazingly, most people are deficient in magnesium. Currently less than 30% of Americans meet the recommended daily intake for magnesium in the diet.  And a stunning 19% of adults—one in five—consumes less than half of the US RDA for magnesium.

According to USDA food charts, the five foods with the highest magnesium per typical serving are:

  • Halibut
  • Mackeral
  • Boiled spinach
  • Bran breakfast cereal
  • Almonds

Foods with highest magnesium per milligram, regardless of typical intake, are:

  • Cocoa
  • Bran breakfast cereal
  • Almonds
  • Cashews
  • Pumpkin seeds

However, the amount of magnesium your body actually uses is different than the total amount of magnesium found in a food or supplement – in fact researchers have found that the average magnesium absorption by the digestive system is only 20 to 50%.

This is why applying magnesium directly to the skin is so effective. Known as transdermal magnesium therapy, it is a powerful new tool that combines the healing power of the body’s largest organ — the skin — with the life sustaining properties of one of our most vital minerals.

magnesium oil massage

And it’s amazingly simple ~ apply magnesium lotion as you would a moisturizer; spray magnesium oil on the bottom of your feet; have a massage with magnesium gel; or add some magnesium flakes to your bath.  Ancient Minerals,  sold by LL’s Magnetic Clay, is the brand we use, and heartily recommend. They utilize an ultra-pure, highly concentrated form of naturally occurring magnesium, along with other trace minerals.

Some benefits of Ancient Minerals topical magnesium:

  • Relieves headaches and migraines
  • Calms stress and hyperactivity
  • Facilitates safe and effective detoxification
  • Relief of aches, pains, spasms
  • Elevates mood and relieves stress
  • Encourages healthy skin tissue
  • Helps maintain proper muscle function
  • Boosts energy levels
  • Supports a healthy immune system
  • Balances the hormonal system
  • Calms overactive nerves
  • Improves quality of sleep
  • Relieves restless leg issues and leg spasms
  • Helps with depression
  • Helps with peridontal disease
  • Helps with eczema and psoriasis
  • Anti-aging
  • …and much more

So, go ahead and eat your magnesium rich foods, but to supplement with magnesium , let your skin do all the absorbing!

Dances with the Daffodils

Field of daffodils

We were going to write about the healing properties of Daffodils –  For centuries, the bulbs were made into a paste and applied to wounds as an astrigent,  as well as placed on strained sinews, stiff or painful joints, burns, and areas affected by gout – However, we then thought twice, since Daffodils also have toxic properties.
So, we’ll leave off with a nod toward the health benefits of poetry and the inspiration that Daffodils can provide…

 I wandered lonely as a Cloud
.
I wandered lonely as a Cloud

That floats on high o’er Vales and Hills,

When all at once I saw a crowd

A host of dancing Daffodils;

Along the Lake, beneath the trees,

Ten thousand dancing in the breeze.

.
The waves beside them danced, but they

Outdid the sparkling waves in glee: —

A poet could not but be gay

In such a laughing company:

I gaz’d–and gaz’d–but little thought

What wealth the shew to me had brought:

.
For oft when on my couch I lie

In vacant or in pensive mood,

They flash upon that inward eye

.
Which is the bliss of solitude,

And then my heart with pleasure fills,

And dances with the Daffodils.

.

William Wordsworth,  Poems in Two Volumes: Moods of my Mind 7 (1807)
