“Watch The Salt, Denver Parents!”

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

Low Sodium Snack Denver

It’s true for Denver parents and children alike: the more sodium you eat, the more likely you are to develop high blood pressure. But for Colorado children and teenagers who are overweight, the warning is even more dire.

High blood pressure in childhood usually means a person will also have high blood pressure as an adult, and this can lead to a heightened risk for stroke and heart disease. Every parent in the Colorado Springs area who is concerned with children’s nutrition should know some basics about lowering sodium intake.

There is a lot of sodium found in processed foods, restaurant foods, and packaged foods. In fact, this is where most Monument, Woodland Park , and Manitou Springs kids get their sodium, as opposed to getting it from the salt shaker.

Better options for your child’s health are fresh, minimally processed foods and home-cooked meals. Make fruits and veggies available for snacking and get everyone hooked on water as their go-to drink.

Hi, I’m Elsa Shields and I am very interested in kids health in Monument. I am the owner of a Denver area home business that sells Xocai Nuggets. If you are interested in learning more, visit my web site at http://www.mxi.myvoffice.com/elsashields/ or give me a call at 719.439.0142.

I hope to talk with you soon.

Vidoes Can Help Monument E-Tailers

Vidoes Can Help Monument E-Tailers

It seems like everyone in Monument has their own video on YouTube. Whether it is a shaky phone-filmed clip of their daughter’s dance solo or the winning goal in a Monument soccer game, videos have a huge impact.

The online marketplace is like the newspapers in Harry Potter’s world: the people in the photos actually move and talk! Why should your Monument home business site be the electronic equivalent of an inert Muggle newspaper?

Savvy Monument online retailers use the power of video to sell online.

Customer Testimonial Video
Record one of your satisfied Monument home business customers enthusiastically extolling the virtues of your Monument online business.

How-To Video
Find a YouTube clip of an expert explaining how to use your product or services. (Make sure you don’t drive potential customers to your competitor’s site.) This type of video works well for Monument direct marketers. The parent company site usually has professional marketing videos ready to drop into your e-store.

Product Demonstration Video
This is similar to the previous two videos. This video should emphasize how your product or service is superior to your competitors. If you give product demos at Monument trade shows, simply record one of them. Voila! A perfect video for your website!

Visual Stories
Easy-to-understand graphics and animation can explain complicated products and services. These are more difficult to produce yourself if you are not a professional. However, they can be extremely effective if your product or service is complex.

If you want more ideas for promoting your online store, contact me today.

New Anti Aging Product In Denver

When it comes to anti aging skin care, Denver women naturally tend to focus most of their attention on their faces. In fact, in 2008 it was reported that 97% (98% in 2006) of female anti aging beauty care purchases are for facial skin care products. But what about the rest of you? Skin you reveal on your hands, chest and legs can give away your age if you’re not careful — no matter how much attention you give to your face. Areas that receive the most incidental UV exposure, like the hands and the décolletage, are very sensitive to the aging process. So when it comes to powerful anti aging skin care in Denver, love the skin you’re in.

UPDATE: In 2000, one of the great scientific achievements occurred when the sequencing of the human genome revealed the entire genetic blueprint. That discovery led cutting edge skin care Beauty Scientists to explore how skin-related genes function and, more importantly, respond to aging and environmental stress at the molecular level. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_Genome_Project

Most Denver folks probably know that stress actually causes a physiological reaction in your body that results in the production of cortisol, known by scientists as ‘the stress hormone.’ Cortisol causes inflammation in the organs of your body, including the skin. That’s right. It’s not a typo. Your skin is an organ! And just like other organs, it can become inflamed. The result? Inflamed pores clog more easily. Inflamed collagen can result in wrinkles. Other signs of skin inflammation include itchiness, dryness and acne. The fact of the matter is that Denver men and women wear their stress on their skin. The question is, what can be done about it?

Denver residents: address your stress. Don’t ignore it!

Learn to identify feelings associated with stress so you can self-soothe through coping strategies such as deep breathing, exercising, meditation or yoga. Carve out time for yourself to minimize tension. Relax in a luxurious bath or shower. Get a massage at a plush Denver day spa. Unclench your jaw. And, of course, take care of your skin—keep it hydrated by moisturizing morning and night. Remember, to get maximum benefits from your moisturizer, apply it to damp skin.

What are peptides and do they matter? Scientifically speaking, peptides are tiny fragments of protein molecules: short chains of amino acids that naturally occur in the skin. Practically speaking, peptides are a growing trend in anti aging skin care! What do peptides do? Peptides promote the natural production of collagen and elastin, both of which plump the skin and give it elasticity. And both of which decline as we age. In skin care products, powerful peptides can work together with glycerin to enhance the stratum corneum to increase hydration which in turn, helps with the natural production of collagen. Not surprisingly, the use of peptides in powerful commercial products sold in Colorado has significantly risen in recent years. Another peptide getting its fair share of attention is pal-KT. Expect to see more from peptides in the future.

Skin tone actually plays a role in how old—or young—you look. How do we know that? Notable Scientists used digital photos of real women to create 3D images of faces with a variety of skin tone patterns. These successful scientists removed all other age-defining features such as facial furrows, lines and wrinkles. Then, over 400 subjects were asked to view the faces, guess the age, and rate them for how healthy they looked and how attractive they appeared. The faces with the most even skin tone, or most uniform color distribution, were not only judged to be younger but they also received significantly higher ratings for attractiveness and looking healthy. So if you are a Colorado Springs man or woman with younger-looking skin on your mind, skin tone should be too.

As you age, your skin does, as well. Not exactly rocket science. Or is it? Every time your skin is exposed to a change in its environment (for example, you scrape it, go out on a sunny day in Denver or even apply moisturizer), the cells in your skin respond by turning on and turning off thousands of different genes at the same time. Using scientific advances that have recently emerged from the Human Genome Project, skin scientists are beginning to gain a deeper understanding of the genes involved in the skin aging process. Meet the gene chip. No bigger than the size of your thumbnail, the gene chip can measure the signals sent out by thousands of genes at a time. Using gene chips, skin scientists are in the process of identifying the genes that play a role in maintaining your skin, as well as how the signals or messages sent out by genes change as your skin begins to age.

Scientists watch and learn. By comparing the genetic composition of the skin of younger and older women, scientists have observed the ups and downs of genes related to inflammation, pigmentation, collagen breakdown, hydration, antioxidant response and lipid synthesis over time. The benefits for Denver residents: Ingredients for anti aging. Scientists have determined that a strong moisture barrier in the top layer of your skin is key for maximum inner skin performance and have identified (and are continuing to identify) ingredients that hydrate to improve skin’s appearance.

Woodland Park Children And Vitamins

Woodland Park                  Children And Vitamins

Many parents in the Denver area are interested in proper nutrition for their children and they want to make sure their kids are getting all the vitamins and minerals they need. Before parents assume that their children need supplemental vitamins, here are a few things to consider.

By far, the best way to meet your child’s nutritional needs is with real, whole foods. Even picky eaters are likely getting what they need since many common foods are fortified with necessary vitamins and minerals.

Next time you’re shopping at your Manitou Springs, Woodland Park , or Monument grocery store, try to buy a rainbow of fruits and vegetables. Also, look for whole grains when buying bread and pasta.

Make sure you’re providing regular balanced meals and healthy snacks for your children.

Since vitamins and supplements do carry some risks, you should consult with your Colorado Springs pediatrician about their use. If one is recommended for your child, be sure it is an age-appropriate product.

My name is Elsa Shields and I want to help Denver families to raise healthy, happy kids.
Issues such as proper nutrition for children and childhood obesity in Manitou Springs concern me. I am the owner of a Denver area home business that sells Xocai Nuggets. If you are interested in learning more, visit my web site at http://www.mxi.myvoffice.com/elsashields/ or give me a call at 719.439.0142.

Tweet Your Denver Online Business

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

Tweet Your Denver Online Business Greetings to my Denver direct selling blog followers! Today’s article is for Denver home business owners who want to use Twitter to promote their businesses.

If you have never used Twitter, here is a quick rundown from the Twitter folks themselves:

‘Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co-workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent messages. People write short updates, often called ‘Tweets’ of 140 characters or fewer. These messages are posted to your profile or your blog, sent to your followers, and are searchable on Twitter search.’ twitter.com

This begs the question, ‘What is a follower?’

Having someone ‘follow’ you means they receive your tweets, or Twitter updates about your Denver business. For example, the followers of my XoBiotic Squares business receive my tweets on their Twitter home page in real time.

Even if you are one of the many Denver social media newbies, I hope the wheels are turning in your entrepreneurial head. The business promotion possibilities are endless.

How about special limited time XoBiotic Squares discounts for your Twitter followers? How about reposting positive tweets on your home businesses Facebook page or online store? How about having your tweets automatically posted to your Denver home based business blog? (You can do this easily by installing a Twitter widget.)

As with other forms of social media, Twitter updates gain speed as more and more people repost them. You can enhance your businesses’ brand by reposting positive online reviews from any source.

As I continue to discover new ways to use Twitter to promote my Denver XoBiotic Squares business, I will share them with my network marketing team members. Check back often.

If you are looking for the best home based business opportunity in Denver, call me today.

The XoBiotic Squares market has ample growth potential in the Denver and absolutely explosive growth potential globally. (Remember, you can sell XoBiotic Squares online to anyone with an internet connection, whether they live in Caracas or Khartoum.)

Future Denver MLM blogs will describe additional ways to use social media to sell product and recruit downline members. If you have discovered something new that works, I would love to hear about it.
