Do Bamboo Plants Make Your Home Healthier?

Why You Should Get a Bamboo Plant Today

If you are planning to buy new houseplants, then you should make one of them a Bamboo plant. One that happens to have a lot of green stalks.

According to Chinese tradition, the more stalks your plant has, the more health benefits you reap.

Based on a two-year research study by NASA, Bamboo plants are great at detoxifying nasty indoor pollutants like chemical vapors that can come from paint, plastic, new rugs and furniture.

And while it is cleaning the air in our home, bamboo releases oxygen as well. That pure oxygen can help people sleep better, feel more energetic and even have less allergy symptoms.

In addition to helping you breathe fresh air, bamboo plants make excellent spider mite repellents.

A pretty indoor plant that repels nasty spiders. Got to love it.

Another health benefit of having a Bamboo plant is that it will help moisturize the air, especially during the winter months when there is naturally less moisture in the air.

Easy to grow plants that can keep spiders away sound pretty awesome to me. Cleaning the air in my house at the same time?

But really. A plant that fights spiders. That is all the reason I need to go buy a Bamboo plant today.

The Best Drinks You Should Be Drinking Everyday For Your Skin

I don't know about you, but I can see changes in my skin almost daily as I get older. So I am just about over-the-moon excited to learn that there is a way to drink your way to healthier looking skin!!

And I am not talking about just drinking water all day. Would you believe Soy Latte is one of the drinks suggested to help improve your skin? 

I'll share why it is in a minute, but for right now, just enjoy knowing that having a delicious soy latte every day is actually good for your skin.

In the morning, start out with a green juice with Kale. It has Vitamins A and C - both of which apparently do amazing things for tired dull skin. Along with that delicious glass of green juice, you get to have one Soy Milk Latte!!

So Why the Soy Milk Latte? 

It is all about the isoflavones in Soy. They help protect collagen. And isoflavones can also help fight wrinkles. Plus,  minerals and proteins in soy milk can help reduce the darkening and discoloration of the skin.

Enjoy two cups of green tea in the afternoon. Now I can absolutely, without a doubt, tell you that drinking green tea always makes me feel better. Especially if I have eaten too much sugary food - or just food in general. But I do tend to get on green tea binges, then back off again. Seeing this list though has reminded me that this is one drink really worth making a daily habit.

In the evening, sip on a glass of chilled Pomegranate juice. This juice actually has twice the anti-oxidants and polyphenol as green tea?  It is also great for building up the collagen in the skin.

And as you get ready for bed, drink a glass of cucumber enhanced water. Cucumbers help hydrate skin. and contain magnesium and potassium, which help decrease skin inflammation.

And of course, drink water throughout the day. You knew that was coming, right?

Happy Drinking!!
