From trying to get to bed early to eating a healthier diet, I really focused on my health and well being in 2016. But I'm only human! So I definitely backslid a little recently. I think my willpower - and common sense - both took extended vacations because I found myself saying yes to every slice of cake, every pile of perogies, and every alcoholic beverage placed in front of me.
I don't regret a single bite or sip, but I'm ready to start 2017 feeling great - and I'm not waiting for the clock to strike midnight to make healthy goals, I'm already righting the ship! It doesn't hurt that I was sent a case of detoxwater™ before the holidays, because not only has it helped me re-hydrate my body, it's also helping to give my metabolism and digestive system a little TLC.
Did you know aloe can do that?
I already knew about aloe's amazing burn-soothing properties, but I was oblivious to the benefits of consuming aloe, although I was definitely curious - especially after seeing some weird looking aloe cocktails online (yum). In turns out that in addition to 20 minerals (which help detoxify the body of metabolic waste) and 19 amino acids (which fight inflammation and bacteria), aloe also has naturally occurring polysaccharides. These long chains of sugar molecules are clinically proven to promote healthy digestion and nutrient absorption, plus they help support the immune system and stabilize blood sugar levels - which I definitely need right now. As an added bonus, these polysaccharides also improve skin's elasticity, which helps skin retain its youthful glow.
By incorporating detoxwater™ into my (once again) healthy diet, I'm feeling really good! It's fun to drink aloe water - it feels so strange! - and that's helped kick start some other good-for-me habits. By the time we ring in 2017 I'll be ready to tackle anything.

Wondering how it tastes? I was definitely expecting a really green tasting beverage, but it's DELICIOUS!
It's mild and refreshing, and it comes in three soft and subtle fruity flavors: Lychee & White Grape, Mangaloe, and Pinamint. It's sweetened with stevia (my favorite) and organic agave nectar, so it's not packed with sugar, which I appreciate. It's also free of any artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives (yay!) - and it's only 15 calories a bottle. More good news: it's also USDA organic, OU Kosher, vegan, and gluten-free.
