Normalize skin metabolism
Most of us knew how to replenish moisture loss in our skin but do we know that it is important to retain moisture first? Many skin care products’ ingredients can replenish moisture loss but if we cannot retain moisture, it is a waste and brings no benefit to our skin.
This is why we need to enhance skin’s ability to retain moisture first before helping it to replenish moisture.
Skin contains 60-70% water of the whole body but its moisture content decreases with age. In fact, the outer horny layer has the ability to retain moisture for preventing evaporation, but its function is affected by metabolism and
unstable skin condition. Skin metabolism normally takes 28 days. For healthy skin, new cells always replaced old ones to keep it at optimal condition. However, due to work pressure, environmental pollution and poor eating habits, etc., abnormal metabolism cycle causes new skin not to form and old skin to accumulate, which affect the horny layer’s ability to retain moisture.
When old horny layer accumulates on skin, it is hard for moisture to penetrate, resulting in problems such as coarse and dull skin as well as appearance of fine lines.
In particular, AHAs, extracted from sugar cane, lemon and apple, are exfoliants that loosen dead cells from the skin’s surface by dissolving the natural glue-like substances that refuse to release dead skin cells. Young healthy skin is like a sponge which can absorb and retain moisture. R3 Factor Skin Defense Crème can renew and rejuvenate skin to keep it young and soft at all the time.
R3 Factor Skin Defense Creme contains aloe, soluble collagen and alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) which facilitate metabolism, rejuvenate, and renew skin.
By R3, we mean
Retain prevent moisture loss for suppleness
Restore enhance metabolism for resilience
Renew get rid of old horny layer for skin’s renewal

Forever Living offering the CLEAN9 & NUTRI-LEAN diet programs for people like you, people who have been in every diet what imaginable, people of every ages and at every wieght level are finding success with the step by step system for achieving and even
maintaining a leaner and healthier lifestyle.
Most of us have heard the basic explanation of how to lose weight: eat less, move more. And while it is good to have that simplified version in the backs of our minds, it doesn’t help as much when we have to make real choices in our daily lives. According to the Centers for Disease Control, adults need 150 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise every week and muscle-strengthening activities on two or more days a week.
Luckily that exercise does not have to be continuous, and there are many
ways that we can get it. Here are some tips for incorporating more physical activity into already busy days:
• Encourage your family members to move with you. Working together can make activity more like play. Ask your family members to take a group walk, shovel the driveway, trim plants and garden, or organize a game of kickball.
• Light exercise before meals can act as an appetite suppressant. Schedule a brisk walk, a session on the workout ball, or a moment with an exercise tape before dinner and you might find you want to eat less.
• Cooking takes time. A few days a week, replace one of your meals with a
Forever Fast Break bar, and use the time you save to take a nice walk. Forever Fast Break Energy Bars have only 230 calories and are full of vitamins and minerals.
• Talk walk breaks instead of coffee breaks. Use your 15 minutes to walk up and down a flight of stairs, walk around the block, or perform some rejuvenating Yoga poses.
• Form a lunchtime walking group. Walk or climb stairs for a half hour beforeeating and you might even eat less of your lunch.
At Play and Away
• Invite your pals for an active play date. Instead of going to lunch, dinner or happy hour where we are all bound to munch too much, invite your good friends to go for a hike, try a new Yoga or Pilates class, or grab your skates and head to the ice rink.
• Plan active outings with the family. Add a game of soccer to the standard Sunday dinner, or cap off a mall visit with two walks around the parking lot. We have all experienced what mindless eating can do to the waistline—a few extra
snacks here and there can add up to weight gain in no time. If you are interested in losing weight, see what mindless exercise can do for you. Add a few minutes of walking here, and a few minutes of family playtime there, and you are sure to feel better. Get into the habit of eating less and moving more, and soon enough you will love your weight loss!
Forever Nature-Min contains trace minerals from natural sea bed deposit. Perfect blend of minerals in each tablet. Minerals play many roles in the human body, from regulating fluid balance to activating genes and hormones.
Your body can benefit from nutrients locked deep in an ancient seabed, because four percent of our body weight is comprised of these minerals. Since our bodies can’t manufacture minerals, we have to obtain them from our food or supplementation.
Forever® Nature-Min® is an advanced, multi-mineral formula using new bio-available forms of minerals for maximum absorption. It provides minerals and trace minerals in a perfectly balanced ratio for maximum efficiency. Using a mineral base of natural seabed deposits, Nature-Min provides most of the minerals found in the human body.
Minerals in the body perform three functions:
1. Some, like calcium, phosphorus and magnesium, are constituents of the bones and teeth.
2. Others are soluble salts that help to control the composition of body fluids and cells.
3. Minerals, such as iron and hemoglobin, perform other vital tasks. They work with enzymes and proteins, which are necessary for releasing and utilizing energy.
Forever Nature-Min is an excellent way to ensure that your body is getting the minerals and trace minerals it needs to meet the demands of a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
Not only is exercise important for preventing illnesses, it is also
important for improving quality of life in all of its stages.
Studies have shown that our increasingly sedentary lifestyles have
created a trend towards weight gain and obesity that can be thwarted
with regular exercise. So how should people of all ages integrate
exercise into their busy lifestyles?
If you are not exercising regularly by your mid-twenties, you will start to see a decline in muscle mass and metabolic rate.
So how can busy young adults add exercise to their already strained
schedules? The most helpful option would be to make time.
Most people spend up to 2 hours a day in front of the television.
Cut that time in half and use the extra hour to go for a brisk walk. If your life is already jam packed with work, school, family time, and errands, recover a half hour a day through reassigningchores or getting up earlier in the morning.
Exercise in your thirties sets the stage for heart and bone health well into the rest of your life. By integrating weight lifting into your fitness routine, you can prevent the early onset of osteoporosis. Studies have shown that metabolism slows by 10 percent each decade, so during these years your body also loses much of its ability to burn calories. Weight gain may be inevitable in midlife unless you add weight-bearing exercise and build muscle. During your forties, hormone fluctuation can cause slowing of Base Metabolic rate. The National Institutes of Health recommend that adults in this age group get 30 minutes of moderate aerobic activity a day, with 2-3 sessions of weight-bearing exercise a week. They recommend the following tips to stick with a fitness plan: track progress, set goals, add variety, enlist a
friend for help, start slowly, wear comfortable clothing, and listen to the body to avoid injury.
According to a recent report by the Surgeon General, exercise helps maintain body weight, builds and maintains healthy muscles, reduces depression and anxiety, improves psychological well-being, and enhances work and recreation performance. People of all ages understand the benefits of exercise, but even with the best intentions there are days when we don’t feel up to it. For an extra boost, try FAB Forever Active Boost™ Natural Energy Drink to rev up your engine. A lifetime of exercise can equal a lifetime of health!
We hate to boast, but have you heard that
Forever Lite Ultra is now new and improved?
Yes, that is right, new and improved! Take our shake mix with fewer carbohydrates and higher protein content, and mix it with our formula of 100% Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) for vitamins and minerals, and you have Forever Lite Ultra with Aminotein in delicious Vanilla and Chocolate. Yum!
What is so different about that? Well for one, Forever Living’s new and improved Forever Lite Ultra has the complete and total benefits of soy protein. And it bears repeating that when we say complete and total, we mean complete
and total! Protein powder comes in many forms, including whey and soy. Both
have been used for many years as excellent sources of protein.
Forever Living currently uses a combination of whey and soy protein in the
Forever Lite products, making the product rich in protein, amino acids and
nutrients. However, emerging science has
revealed that soy protein alone can
provide some unique advantages over using the combination of whey and soy.
Therefore, Forever Living has chosen to create a new shake mix utilizing all the benefits of the latest technologies with our new proprietary soy blend!
A protein must meet a high standard to be considered complete. And high quality proteins are only those thatcontain all of the essential amino acids in the correct ratio, to support healthy growth, development and maintenance of muscle tissue. Consider this table showing the benefits of a whey/soy protein blend vs. a soy only protein:
Forever Lite Ultra with Aminotein has all that and more! Soy is an
excellent source of dietary protein and includes all the essential amino acids, according to the Mayo Clinic. It is also plant-based, making it more sustainable and eco-friendly than animal-based whey protein. One of the best parts about soy protein, though, is that significant clinical research studies have found that it lowers cholesterol – and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has even approved this as an authorized health claim! In fact, two shakes made with Forever Lite Ultra with Aminotein provide you with 34 grams of protein from soy. And according to the FDA,
“25g of soy protein a day, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.”
That’s a win-win situation!
Soy protein also appears to support exercise performance, and because it is such a high quality protein, it satisfies the greater need athletes have for protein during muscle-building. It also supplies the necessary essential amino acids for physical and muscular development for both athletes and our growing families alike, making it the perfect drink to take before and after your exercise regimen. The other great thing about our new and improved Forever Lite Ultra with Aminotein
What’s ‘Aminotein’, you ask?! Basically, Aminotein is a unique blend of enzymes specifically designed to break down protein and to ensure proper digestion and optimal absorption of amino acids. One of the biggest stumbling blocks of consuming large amounts of protein is digestibility. As we age, the level of enzyme production needed to break down protein in the body reduces, making it harder for our bodies to properly digest protein and receive the benefits of its precious building blocks – amino acids.
Aminotein is a specialized enzyme blend that works to unleash the power of the amino acids in soy protein by breaking down protein molecules more efficiently than the body can on its own, making more amino acids available for absorption. Forever Lite Ultra with Aminotein and soy protein… who could ask for a better combination?!
Forever Lite Ultra has also been established as a great meal replacement shake for those of us who need support in keeping our calories low and our nutrients high. Not to mention, it is just a delicious and convenient way of getting your
RDI for vitamins and minerals in one long, sweet and delicious drink. And as you now know, soy is not only a complete
protein, but it does all that in a lactosefree and nondairy form. Wow!
And if that is not enough, soy also provides calcium, iron, zinc, phosphorus, magnesium, B vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids and fiber. Not many plants have that distinction…you can see why we’ve shaken things up a bit with our new and improved Forever Lite Ultra.
So take the plunge with our new and improved Forever Lite Ultra with Aminotein shake mix. Be consistent in maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and mix a shake or two every day. Make Forever Lite Ultra part of your healthy diet.
Gather the whole family around the kitchen and hand out a shake for all! You will get the added benefit of knowing you are supplying your dear family and yourself with many of the nutrients and protein you need in one deliciously blended
shake. Dive in!
Our skin is the organ with the largest surface area which toxins are removed via sweat glands. When detoxification is not competent with other body systems, the toxins can rise up to the skin causing acne and rashes.
In short, the skin is one of the most powerful indicators of our health.
Wrinkles, dry or oily skin, acne, and inflammation all are signs of poor
internal health, often caused by consuming unhealthy foods and avoiding skin-healthy nutrients.
These are the common skin problems:
1. Acne – due to overactive oil glands Excess oil makes the pores
sticky allowing bacteria to become trapped inside. Other factors that contribute to acne are hormone imbalance, stress, lack of sleep, poor diet habits and accumulation of toxins in the body.
2. Wrinkles – due to aging and overexposure of environmental pollutants and UV rays.
3. Blackhead – form when sebum (oil) combines with skin pigments to block the pores. To treat skin problems, most people turn to mainstream topical cosmetics, including lotions, soaps, scrubs, toners, and creams. However, treating outer blemishes with beauty products does little to address the root cause of the problem: poor nutrition and exposure to toxins in dietary products and environments. It is important to nourish the skin, making it healthy and youthful. The following are simple ways to attain healthy, glowing skin.
Forever Products That May Help
• Start your day with ForeverPomesteen Power*
(rich in antioxidants, which helps to reduce free radical damage due to environmental pollutants and toxins, and delay premature aging)
• Drink at least 2.5 liter water daily
• Eat healthy foods
• Sweat it out
• Rest well
• Stay happy
Forever Arctic Sea
Dry, inflamed skin or skin that suffers from the frequent appearance of whiteheads or blackheads can benefit from supplementing with essential fatty acids (EFAs), especially omega-3s. EFAs are responsible for skin repair, moisture content, and overall flexibility.
Forever Absorbent C
Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant, which helps in reducing free radicals damage, caused by overexposure to the sun or pollution. Free radical weaken collagen and elastin (the fibers that support skin structure) causing wrinkles and other signs of premature aging. Vitamin C also helps to boost collagen production.
Aloe Vera Gel
Healthy skin comes from healthy colon. Aloe Vera contains saponins, a bubble forming substances which helps to cleanse digestive tract, while fiber helps to stimulate colon movements and excreting waste products.
Forever Royal Jelly
Stress and hormone imbalance causes acne. Royal Jelly contains phytohormones which are helpful in regulating body hormonal imbalance, thus improving skin health.
Forever Active HA
As we grow older, the ability of skin to produce hyaluronic acid (HA) decreases and the skin becomes drier, thinner, and fine lines and wrinkles appear. Forever Active HA helps the skin to retain its moisture and increases hydration to the cells, giving your skin smooth and ‘plump’.
Forever Light Ultra
Amino acids are building blocks for the body and for healthy skin too. Forever Light Ultra contains 60% less carbohydrates and 55% more protein than the regular Forever Lite which provides the essential amino acids required by the body for collagen building. With good simple habits and the help of Forever products, healthy skin from the inside out is something we can attain.
The Fecal amount of city-dwellers has decreased 20% when compared with that 20 years ago, which shows that our intestines are under the great pressure of stored feces.
According to experiments, there will be weight loss of 2-30lb after cleansing intestines. So it is time for us to manage bowel properly.
A Glimpse of Stored Feces
In view of aging and consumption of more meat, modern people’s bowel movement is weakened, resulting in stored feces, which will produce harmful materials for intestine wall to absorb, and then being transmitted to other parts of the body. Such toxins lower skin quality and cause all kinds of diseases. Getting rid of stored feces not only improve constipation, acnes and color spots, but also help remove intestine fat, lose weight and regulate body immunity. In the age of Hippocrates (an ancient Greek physician), there had been records of intestine cleansing already.
According to studies, the averaged stored feces of a normal person can be up to 13- 14lb. Even though one may defecate regularly, his/her intestine can be contaminated. This is due to bad dietary habits, daily stress, sitting for a long time, etc., all affecting the digestive function.
When food residues are kept in intestine wall, they accumulate and harden into a film of mucus and bacteria, leading to narrowing of intestine, and thus hindering nutrient absorption. Once feces are stored inside the colon, toxins are produced and released into blood.
Sources of Diseases
Scientific research reveals that 50% human’s immune system is located in the colon. If the colon malfunctions, toxins inside the body will be removed through other channels, e.g. kidney, skin and respiration, resulting in problems such as body and breath odor, dull skin, skin allergy, rash as well as color spots. Some may think that the formation of big belly is due to obesity. Actually, the underlying cause is the accumulated toxins, which bring about increased waist line and weight.
The toxins also increase kidney and liver’s burden, damage other main organs, thus triggering the incidence of cancers.
Lymphatic system is found throughout the body, which serves to fight against bacteria and detoxify by means of sweat glands, intestine and kidney. As more than 70% lymphatic system is located around the intestines, if the toxins are not removed, they will enter into other parts of the body through the system again. This phenomenon is known as
“autointoxication”, which is the source of many diseases.
Don’ts for Healthy Intestines
In order to keep intestines clean, one needs to take care daily diets and ways of living by avoiding the followings:
Eating Too Fast
Busy and hectic life urges one to eat fast and food is digested incompletely, leaving the toxin problem. So it is important to chew thoroughly.
Human body needs a warm environment. Thus cold food should be avoided as it slows down bowel movement.
Drinking Too Much Water During Meals
This will dilute digestive fluid and enzyme, which send a wrong signal to stomach that the digestive process is finished. The indigested food gives extra burden to small intestine. So it is recommended not to drink abundant water half an hour before and 1 hour after meals.
Such delay will harm the body, bringing toxins into the bloodstream. According to “The Lancet” and “American Health Journal”, scientific studies shows that women with constipation and defecation difficulty are vulnerable to breast cancer.
Water, probiotics, fiber, enzyme and vitamin B complex are essential in the process of colon detoxification.
Probiotics: Forever Active - Probiotic
Designed to promote a healthy digestive system Unique combination of 6 beneficial strains of microbes.
Intestinal health is closely related to the balance of microorganisms. As harmful bacteria causes constipation and diarrhea, take probiotics to increase good bacteria.
Easy-to chew tablet that delivers your daily requirement of antioxidants and fiber made from 18 fruits and vegetables.
The occurrence of stored feces is also related to how well food is digested and feces volume. As sufficient amount of feces facilitates defecation, fiber plays a vital role in feces volume. It is suggested to consume 25-30mg dietary fiber
Enzyme: Aloe Gel:
Aloe acts as a “prebiotic,” which fosters the growth of and provides the ideal environment for the probiotic to function and contains enzyme which helps digestion. Enzyme aids in protein and fat digestion, and is crucial for metabolism. It also detoxifies the body. The Aloe Gel contains vitamin B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 and B12.
Water - Forever Natural Spring Water.
It can improve metabolism and rid the body of toxins and wastes. Therefore one should drink at least 6-8 glasses
of water daily.
Food borne disease is one of the growing global public health problems. It happens after one consumes food or beverage that is contaminated with microorganisms or chemicals. With the recent outbreak of E.coli infection which began in Germany, people are concerned about preventive actions.
What is E.coli?
E.coli is bacteria commonly found in the intestine of human and animals.
Most of the strains are harmless but some strains are able to produce
toxin in which they are commonly known as Shiga Toxin Producing E.coli (STEC). The toxin produced not only cause bloody diarrhea but also hemolytic uremic syndrome (a disease that destroys red blood cells and cause acute kidney failure) which can be fatal.
Who gets STEC infection?
You get an E. coli infection by coming into contact with the feces, or stool, of humans or animals. This can happen when you drink water or eat food
that has been contaminated by feces. Anyone of any age can become infected with STEC after consuming contaminated food or drink. However, children and the elderly are more likely to develop serious complications.
What happens in the body after the E-coli bacteria enter the digestive system?
After they are swallowed, there is an incubation period before the symptoms of illness begin. The incubation period for STEC is three to eight days. During the incubation period, the microbes pass through the stomach into the intestine, attach to the cells lining the intestinal walls, and begin to multiply there. They stay in the intestine and produce Shiga toxin that is absorbed into the bloodstream. Some people do not notice any symptoms. Children are more likely than
adults to have symptoms. Symptoms usually start 3 or 4 days after you come in contact with the E. coli.
Most people get better in about a week. They often don't see a doctor and don't know that E. coli caused their problems.
What are the symptoms of E-coli infection?
The symptoms include severe stomach cramps, fever, bloody diarrhea, low platelet count and vomiting. Most people
get better within 5 to 7 days, but some may go on to develop deadly hemolytic uremic syndrome which is characterized by hemolytic anemia (toxin substance destroy red blood cells) and acute renal failure.
When E. coli causes serious problems with the blood or kidneys, symptoms include:
Pale skin, fever, weakness, bruising, frequent painful urination feeling, passing only small amounts of urine, (UTI)
How do you prevent an E. coli infection?
Cook all types of beef, but especially ground beef, to at least 160°F (71°C).
In the kitchen, wash your hands with hot, soapy water often, especially after you touch raw meat.
Wash any tools or kitchen surfaces that have touched raw meat.
Use only pasteurized milk, dairy, and juice products.
Use only treated, or chlorinated, drinking water.
When you travel to countries that may have unsafe drinking water, don't use ice or drink tap water. Avoid raw fruits and vegetables, except those with skin that you peel yourself.
Wash your hands often, before preparing food or eat a meal and always wash them after you use the bathroom or change diapers.
Boosting your immune system is the best way to prevent food borne disease. It can be achieved by exercising regularly, managing stress well, leading a healthy diet and resting well.
