With temperatures rising and a heat wave upon a large portion of the country, we at O2 Living and Living Health and Wellness want to make sure everyone is staying hydrated, cool and healthy! In addition to getting more than your regular intake of water, you may want to eat these delicious and hydrating fruits and vegetables. The bonus to these fruits and veggies - you don't have to cook them! Eating these raw, organic fruits and vegetables can keep you hydrated and save you the heat from the oven.
Mix together some fruits for a sweet and hydrating breakfast fruit salad. Crunch on some veggies with a side of hummus or salsa for a hydrating snack. Or, explore O2 Living's organic, vegan recipes on Living Juice's website! We have a long list of refreshing, vegan dishes that will keep you cool and hydrated throughout this heat wave. If you prefer to drink your fruits and veggies, try organic, cold-pressed Living Juices by the makers of Living Hemp Extract and Hormone products! Living Juice's Pineapple Punch (with hydrating pineapple and kale) and Carrot Kick (with hydrating oranges) are sure to quench your thirst and keep you hydrated while providing you with nutrients, vitamins and minerals!

Cigarettes and nicotine are detrimental to your body and your heart health. Almost one third of deaths from coronary heart disease in the U.S. are attributable to smoking or secondhand smoke. Smoking is the most preventable cause of death in the country as well. A recent study showed that hemp extract, like that in our Living Health and Wellness products, may reduce the urge to smoke cigarettes and could be a potential treatment for those hoping to quit tobacco!
