      I am sorry. I am not manufacturing or selling any product. I am just writing articles on natural remedies. I am really delighted if my efforts look as good as a sales copy. You can try applying lemon juice to your hair and wash it off after 30 minutes. Do it on a regular basis. Please don’t expect any miracles.

      I believe anti-aging foods may add years to our life. They also improve the quality of life and boost immunity against diseases. It is also necessary to drink plenty of water.

      Rather than use medicines to look and stay younger, these anti-aging food suggestions sound better for me. I'm a fanatic about detox and anti-oxidants to flash out from my system toxins accumulated all those years of unmindful and careless eating when I was younger and ill-informed. It seems that I'm in the right direction because all of these are my regulars in meals except almond which is not produced in my country. Avocado is now in season and it's one of my favorites. Useful, vote up!
