10 reasons you should reduce the amount of sugar in your diet 👈😛🍩🍰🍫


Sugar sugar!  Are you consuming to much of the sweet stuff ? Probably yes 😁 You may of heard of people doing a sugar detox and thought about trying it but sugar is just everywhere ! And we all love some sugary deserts 😊 In this post I’m not advising you to remove sugar entirely from your diet, just explaining the benefits of cutting down and you will thank me for it.

So let’s begin :

1. Improved mental health

Hey hey who doesn’t want this benefit ?

Over-consumption of sugar leads to imbalances in certain brain chemicals, doubling the chances of outcomes like depression & anxiety. In particular, it seems excess sugar impacts dopamine–the neurotransmitter that fuels the brain’s reward system!

Chronically high blood sugar levels have also been linked to inflammation in the brain. And as some research has suggested, neuroinflammation may be one possible cause of depression. Don’t let this demonise sugar, the human body needs sugar ! But the correct amount. We are eating 5 times our daily intake it has been proven in scientific studies.

2. Reduce aging & roll back the years

In numerous detox participants there has been fantastic results in skin appearance after the reduction of sugar in the diet, Collagen and elastin are the most important proteins for healthy wrinkle free skin. They are the two building blocks essential to keeping your skin smooth and flexible. The British Journal of Dermatology explains, “Dryness and lack of elasticity occurs when these proteins become damaged.”

The science is this: When you have sugar molecules in your system, they bombard the body’s cells like a meteor ­shower—glomming onto fats and proteins in a process known as glycation. This forms advanced glycation end products (commonly shortened, appropriately, to AGEs), which cause protein fibers to become stiff and malformed. Much of what is known about glycation’s ill effects comes from diabetes research: The connective-tissue damage and chronic inflammation resulting from diabetics’ sustained high blood sugar can lead to debilitating conditions, such as cataracts, Alzheimer’s, vascular tightening, and diseases of the pancreas and liver.

 Foods rich in antioxidants fight the effects of aging by reducing free radical damage. They can also help keep sugar from attaching to proteins. Sugar attaches to these proteins when you consume too much sugar!  This leads to damage to Collagen which means older looking skin 😜 So now you’ve been scared into eating fruit and veggies haha I don’t feel guilty because I know it will help you 😀

The proteins in skin most prone to glycation are the same ones that make a youthful complexion so plump and springy—collagen and elastin. When those proteins hook up with renegade sugars, they become discolored, weak, and less supple; this shows up on the skin’s surface as wrinkles, sagginess, and a loss of radiance. The presence of AGEs also makes the complexion more vulnerable to bad-news assailants such as UV light and cigarette smoke. As New York–based dermatologist Cheryl Karcher, MD, puts it: “Number one, the glucose makes the cells abnormal; and number two, it creates free radicals. So you get a double whammy when it comes to aging.” From http://www.elle.com

The amazing uses of Organic Coconut Oil

At the moment there is a massive trend in the hair and beauty world for coconut oil based products. Especially shampoos and conditioners! But what about just plain old organic coconut oil ? What can that do on its own ? Well there are a lot of amazing uses and I’m going to delve into a few in my blog post today. As it’s just been new year I bet there are ladies out there who want some natural health and beauty tips to help kick off the first half of 2018 😉


Natrual Bug, Flea and Insect Repellent for humans and animals 

Use coconut oil mixed in with tea tree oil, lavender oil or peppermint oil and apply all over your body if your in a location that has bugs, flies, bees or insects of any kind and this should act as a pretty good repellent. You can also add all oils in together to create a more powerful reppelent. Some people add lemon or lemongrass to the body repellent but you should avoid doing that if your going out in the sun as the lemon could burn and damage your skin 👈

For dogs and cats you can create a spray using a bottle at one cup of water, 1 cup of coconut oil with added lavender oil or lemongrass oil. Spray and comb throw coat. This will help combat lice and fleas in animals and also repel any insects or bugs. You can use tea tree for this also.

Cat and dogs coats

Apply coconut oil to your animals coat after rubbing it I’m your hands to heat or you can heat slightly in a container over the cooker but just slightly ! Brush it through and leave on for 1 hour and then wash off, once dry their coats should improve in quality and shine, can improve hair loss in animals and is very effective in combating fleas 😉 So looks like you and your pet can have coconut oiling pamper nights !!!

This will improve your hair growth, reduce dandruff and make your hair stronger. If you have hair loss concentrate on applying to those areas ☺ also you may want to mix coconut oil with organic castor oil and leave in overnight with cling film covering your head. That would be very affective for your hair loss.

Consuming a tablespoon of coconut oil a day benefits 

– Coconut oil is easy to digest and contains compounds that destroy bad bacteria, promote growth of probiotics and helps heal leaky gut. Coconut oil promotes the growth of healthy probiotics in the digestive tract.  The antibacterial, antifungal, and antimicrobial properties help to control parasites, and fungi, while aiding in the efficient absorption of essential nutrients.

According to numerous studies a tablespoon of coconut oil a day can help you lose weight 😁  So if your working hard at the gym or on a diet this trick is for you 😉

 Ezcema and Psoriasis Cure Treatment 

Coconut oil can be used as cream to naturally heal dry and flaking skin for those with eczema and psoriasis.


  Coconut oil supports both a healthy liver, and kidneys. According to researchers, virgin coconut oil, prepared without chemical or high-heat treatment exhibits an inhibitory effect on chronic inflammation. As inflammation is one of the leading causes of many chronic diseases, this study supports regular consumption of virgin coconut oil to help fight inflajmmation.


Consuming 2 tablespoons of pure coconut oil a day for a few months reduces symptoms of fibro. Energy from the oil goes straight to the liver and gives an energy boost. A compound in the oil can also reduce pain and inflammation which is fantastic for fibromyalgia. I have read glowing reports of improvements from people who have used this method for fibromyalgia although it’s not a miracle cure an improvement is an improvement and it’s worth a try 😉 Having fibromyalgia makes people more susceptible to other conditions so anything that boosts the immune system is a bonus 💖


OK so I heard that coconut oil could kill Hepatitis viruses in your body but I was really not so sure about that, maybe it could combat the symptoms but certainly not kill it ? If so everyone with this could be cured. So I did a little digging about and this is what I found :

The liver is one of the most important organs of the body. It detoxifies, builds proteins and fats, secretes hormones, stores vitamins and minerals, produces bile necessary for digestion, and a hundred or so other functions vital for maintaining proper health. Both Hepatitis C and cirrhosis can be fatal. Researchers have been finding coconut oil to be of great benefit to liver health. The medium chain fatty acids in Virgin Coconut Oil go straight to the liver from the digestive tract. The anti-microbial fatty acids can then clean the liver of harmful micro-organisms as well as protect it from free-radical reactions. Research has shown that in the laboratory, medium chain fatty acids are effective against Hepatitis C infections. Virgin Coconut Oil will also help with cirrhosis. A few studies have shown both natural palm and coconut oils to be effective in preventing alcohol-induced cirrhosis and, as stated by one researcher “reverse alcohol related liver injury – from http://www.yesgethealthy.com


Children and adults with cancer should commit to taking 2 spoonfulls a day of Virgin coconut oil as having cancer makes you suspectible to secondary illness, this will massively improve and build the immune system up. Making recover faster. Also there are the many beauty benefits such as hair growth and better skin to acompany the immune support. A recent study which has found an active, anti-cancer component in coconut oil. In fact, this component makes up 50 percent of this amazing oil. What is this amazing cancer killing compound? Lauric acid. In one study, published in the journal Cancer Research and conducted at the University of Adelaide, it was discovered that lauric acid killed more than 90 percent of the colon cancer cells after just two days of treatment. This study was conducted in vitro, but researchers reached the conclusion that lauric acid could also induce cancer cell death in clinical studies as well.

So that’s pretty amazing right ? Your health and beauty regime just got a new friend > Mr Coconut 😂
