Schisandra Berry, also known as Wu Wei Zi, translates to “five flavors fruit” — because it literally has all five flavors. The flavors activate the channels and meridians in our body, and that’s how we get all the benefits of this unique herb! 🙌🙋♀️
Schisandra berries are a wonderfully potent liver tonic which act to support our immune system and provide abundant energy levels while keeping us in a parasympathetic state. They encourage calmness and tranquility, reduce stress, nourish sleep and balance our hormones. Schisandra helps the liver remove toxins while eliminating detox symptoms such as blemishes, fatigue, and headaches. This encourages better hormone balance and decreases PMS symptoms, heavy periods, fibroids, cysts, and hot flashes during menopause.🧘♀️🌙
Balancing the liver results in clear, beautiful, smooth skin and bright, white eyes. Schisandra’s astringent nature helps the body hold fluids, which reduces dry skin and increases moisture content. Schisandra berries are a wonderful herb to help age gracefully with a gorgeous complexion. Schisandra also improves focus and reduces mental tiredness by reducing brain fog that is cause by many hormone imbalances such as low estrogen and adrenal fatigue. ✨🙏
The benefits of this adaptogenic and antioxidant superberry can be felt when taking Schisandra consistently for 100 days. I encourage you to try a 100 day Schisandra challenge — consume Schisandra berries in some way for 100 days straight, teas or tonics are my favorite way to take them. 💜
Simmer dried berres in a pot on the stove for 15 minutes, strain and drink tea. @moonjuice sells my favorite Schisandra powder that is ready to add to anything; smoothies, matcha tea, or juice. You can also sprinkle over yogurt, oatmeal, or fresh fruit. Good luck on your challenge! xo 👏✨💕
Looking to give your fast a boost?
Try adding some of these ingredients to your favorite fasting fluids to enhance the benefits of your fast.
Here are three of my favorites:
☕Add cinnamon to your black coffee .
Cinnamon is a spice that should be in every faster's arsenal. It's an antioxidant powerhouse, anti-inflammatory, improves insulin sensitivity, and lowers blood sugar. LITERALLY improves almost every benefit you're looking to achieve with fasting. Plus, it tastes delicious when added to your favorite cup of joe. 👌
🍵Add lemon to your green tea
Green tea is very healthy on it's own due to the polyphenols it contains, called catechins. Catechins in tea are tied to reduced risk of cancer, heart attack, and other diseases. However, we only absorb about 20% after digestion. Adding lemon helps the body absorb almost 13X more catechins from your tea, while providing vitamin C.
💦Add pink Himalayan salt to your water
I've posted about this in the past, but for those who don't know - when you fast, your minerals and electrolytes become depleted. Pink salt contains 84 trace minerals & electrolytes to replenish your body during a fast (especially for anything extended past 24 hours).
What are some of your favorite hacks to enhance a fast? Let me know 👇👇👇

Cannabinoid receptors are basically signaling stations that are able to communicate with other important cells in the body. There are two main receptors, CB1 and CB2, or cannabinoid receptor one and two.
Cannabinoids lock themselves to these receptors which can be found all over the human body. Endogenous cannabinoids do this so that the body functions as it’s supposed to, from the immune system to the muscular system.
CB1 is expressed throughout the central nervous system and exists in high concentrations in many regions of the brain. CB2’s greatest area of expression is in the gastrointestinal tract. Cannabinoid receptor two is mainly expressed within the immune system and the peripheral nervous system.
CB1 and CB2 work at their best when they operate together. The receptors have an important role to play in modulating the mood, memory, appetite and the pain felt by the body. When the receptor is linked with a cannabinoid – whether external or endogenous – the receptors are “unlocked” and release a certain effect into the body.
Cannabinoid receptors are used to keep the body in balance so that it operates as it is supposed to – they will release more or less of certain reactions into the body according to the situation. However, sometimes there will be a deficiency of cannabinoids in the system which is why people choose to take forms of medication that contain external cannabinoids like Full Spectrum Hemp Oil.

As we age, collagen production slows down, leading to fine lines and wrinkles. Our #VitaminCElixir helps to boost collagen production, the essential protein providing elasticity in our skin… 💫 📷: @yudo_kurita model: @brattny_b
🍉🍉🍉 Llegó el verano y no hay nada más rico, refrescante e hidratante que la sandía...
🍉 La sandía cuenta con más licopeno que los tomates crudos, los cuales se cree que actúa como un estupendo antioxidante, evitando que los radicales libres dañen las células y jueguen con tu sistema inmunológico.
🍉 El jugo de sandía puede aliviar el dolor muscular, Un estudio español publicado en el Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry encontró que beber jugo de sandía en realidad puede ser muy relajante después de un entrenamiento extenuante. Los atletas que consumen 500 gramos por hora antes del ejercicio, tuvieron menos dolor muscular y una frecuencia cardíaca más baja.
🍉 Tiene propiedades anti-inflamatorias “El licopeno en la sandía también hace que sea una fruta anti-inflamatoria”, aseguró Jarzabkowski, ya que es un inhibidor para diversos procesos inflamatorios, Además, la sandía contiene colina, que ayuda a mantener la inflamación crónica abajo.

Korábban is igyekeztem egészségesen táplálkozni, de mióta babát várok azóta extrán odafigyelek, sőt, ha őszinte akarok lenni, akkor néha talán túlzásba is esek. A legnagyobb felfedezés nálam a kókuszvíz volt, tele van tápanyagokkal és még finom is. Nálam nem telhet el nap a fogyasztása nélkül. Ugyanígy vagyok a gránátalmalével is, ami az egyik legerősebb antioxidáns. Ti isszátok valamelyiket ❓Nekem fontos volt, hogy amellett, hogy 100%-os a gyümölcstartalma, ne tartalmazzon hozzáadott cukrot és tartósítószert. Olvassatok Ti is utána, tök jó dolgokat fogtok találni❗️ #healthy#life#antioxidant#coconut#momtobe#pregnant#pregnancy#reklam#tucsok#life@grantehungary

Still looking for last minute Christmas gifts?
Here is a little homemade recipe that you're going to love!
Homemade Whipped Peppermint Body Cream ~
1 cup shea butter
1/2 cup coconut oil
6 tbsp jojoba oil
20-40 drops peppermint essential oil
1/2 tsp beetroot powder or a few drops of beet color (optional)
Put 1-2 inches of water in a small pot and place over medium-high heat. Put a glass bowl on top of the pot so that the water is just underneath the bowl, but not touching it. Put the shea butter, coconut oil, and jojoba oil in the glass bowl, and let the ingredients fully melt. Stir the mixture occasionally.
Once ingredients have melted, turn off the heat and remove the glass bowl from the pot. Let the ingredients partially set so that it feels soft to the touch but solid. You can speed this process up by placing the bowl in the freezer for 20-40 minutes, and then letting it finish setting in the fridge.
Whip the ingredients with a hand mixer (or in a stand-alone mixer) until the body butter becomes light and fluffy. While whipping, add the peppermint essential oil and beetroot powder (optional) until it reaches a light pink. Transfer to small glass containers for storage or to give as gifts!
Tips and Tricks:
You may be tempted to whip your body butter before it’s ready because it’s super fun. Believe me, I get it. However, it’s incredibly important to allow the mixture to partially set before whipping. The mixture must be solid, but soft. This will allow it to have a soft, fluffy texture when whipping.
If you let the body butter sit in the fridge too long, simply set it out on the counter and let it come back to room temperature.
If the body butter melts or becomes too soft, you can re-whip it to give it a light and fluffy texture.

Green smoothie and my nails are exactly Christmas color 🎄 🦌 ⛄️ My favorite basic green smoothie
recipe😋🍀🌱🍀🌱🍀🌱🍀🌱🍀 ⭐️one cup frozen kale ⭐️half banana 🍌 (because I ate half before I put it into blender😛)
⭐️some raspberries ⭐️one tea spoon of cinnamon ⭐️some lemon 🍋water
⭐️cashew milk (unsweetened) 😶this smoothie was amazingly fresh and delicious 😋 and make me rejuvenated. Three step to lose weight🐥🐾
1 Listen positive affirmation in the morning and don’t listen news in the morning ( because most of the case news aren’t good news)
2 Do 🧘♀️ yoga and remove stress from your body.
3 Make green smoothie for yourself. If you wanna eat muffins or cake, it’s totally okay to eat cakes 🍰 but please eat them in the morning with tea or coffee ☕️ (This is a secret between us. Eating cakes or sweets in the morning never make you fat because you can consume the calories easily later. and in my theory cake isn’t the cause of obesity. Cakes are my friends🤗🎂🍓and they always encourage me to work out hard and make me happy as human friends. If you have a time, I also recommend people to bake cakes or muffins by yourself. Homemade cakes and muffins are much healthier and more delicious because they include love ❤️ and you can choose healthier and good quality ingredients!! 今夜はお風呂上がりにグリーンスムージーを飲んだよヾ(๑╹◡╹)ﾉ"
材料は、ケール、バナナ、シナモンパウダー、レモン汁、水、カッシュミルク、ラズベリー数個です( ^ω^ )ケールとバナナさえ入れれば他は変えても大丈夫です。日本ではカッシュミルクが手に入りにくいと思うから、豆乳やアーモンドミルクでもいいと思う。冷たくて、びっくりするくらいフレッシュで美味しい😮❤️ 🥕🥕🥕🥕🥕🥕🥕🥕🥕🥕🥕🥕🥕🥕🥕
