In pursuit of wellness

Beauty is not just about looking good. It is also about feeling good. I’ve noticed that whenever I am sick, my skin looks horrible. So now that I am older, I don’t just take care of my skin and hair but also the rest of my body (I try to at least). Taking care of oneself means eating right and exercising. Taking supplements helps, too.

One of the supplements that I take is ABW Leaves of Life which combines the health benefits of three of the world’s proven nutritional powerhouses – alfalfa, barley and wheatgrass, to help boost the immune system.

I know I am late getting into this wheatgrass trend as people have been talking about it for more than a couple of years.

Alfalfa is alkaline so it helps offset the acidic effects of the common diet made up of acidic influencers such as red meat, processed and refined food, deep fried foods, trans-fat, sugar, caffeine and dairy products.

Continued intake of barley grass provides energy and helps restore the body’s acid-alkaline balance. It is also rich in live enzymes and anti-oxidants that help rid the body of toxins and destructive free radicals.

Gluten-free wheatgrass provides a far greater amount of amino acids and vitamins than other plant sources. It stimulates the immune system and assists in cleansing the blood of impurities.

ABW’s three food sources aid in correcting the body’s blood chemistry and strengthening the immune system.

This is a good way to take your vegetables without having to eat them.
