Cacao and Goji

This is what I'm drinking daily at the moment; Cacao and Goji berry smoothies. Yummy!!!It makes me feel so good. I've also just completed a seven day detox fast in a Spa on Koh Samui, Thailand. That is helping too. No food, just liquid broth and special drinks plus coffee up the backside twice daily. Not for the feint-hearted I tell you.

More on Cacao

"Cacao seems to be the number one source of magnesium of any food. Magnesium balances the brain’s chemistry, builds strong bones and promotes happiness. Studies show that 80% of us are chronically deficient in Magnesium and it is the most deficient major mineral in the standard UK diet. As well as Magnesium, most people in the west also have a lack of the mineral sulphur in their diets. Cacao is also high in sulphur which is one of the most important building blocks in our bodies, being present in every single cell. It is known as the 'beauty and healing mineral' as it helps to build strong nails, shiny hair and beautiful skin. It also detoxifies the liver, supports healthy pancreas functioning, promotes circulation and decreases inflammation."
