Are Heavy Metals Destroying Your Health – OHR #408

Are Heavy Metals Destroying Your Health?

It’s summer. It’s hot. Sweating is good but can deplete you.

Did you know that our body runs on movements of a group of minerals that shuttle in and out of cells and in and out of little organs within our cells?

Did you also know that if we have low levels of these important minerals that our bodies can’t energize and we will feel blah or have a headache or muscle cramps or just feel drained?

Well I have a very good rescue if this is happening to you. My other company, BodyHealth, has come up with an electrolyte mix that has a blend of our Perfect Amino, with sodium, potassium, magnesium, zinc and trace minerals. It comes in two flavors, Watermelon Zen and Orange. I am using them daily for workouts and for a refreshing drink when I am thirsty.

They really work to pick me up after a sauna session, workout or with dinner. Many people have written in to say how well they work.

I want you to try them and see how they help your body perform better.

I know this will help you get through these brutally hot days with ease.

Try them out.

Have a great week.
