Dare to “Go Black”


“Take care of yourself first, you can’t pour from an empty cup.”

Fortunately, I have friends who encourage me to do good or eat healthy, quit smoking or don’t sleep late, exercise, be positive, keep my faith, etc. I have vegan friends too making me experience the best dishes out there without any meat and didn’t disappoint me on it’s being equally delicious. I’m lucky to have friends who practice what they preach. And they’re so encouraging. It teaches me to be conscious. Well, I am. I freaked if I gain a few pounds and will do things to bring my back my original weight.

However, there are just some stuff I can’t get over with yet but believe me I’m trying. I stopped drinking soft drinks (I have nothing against those who do) for 3 years now.

After giving birth, I got addicted to instant noodles, they are easy to prepare, and tasty too. Though thanks to friends again who made me aware of some facts: that they are low in nutrients and the MSG (Monosodium glutamate), TBHQ (Tertiary-butylhydroquinone: its’ reputation being a threat to my health if consumed regularly) and the high sodium contents may literally have a negative effect on my health like increasing heart disease, stomach cancer and metabolic syndrome. So I refrained from eating instant noodles. I prepare my own, home-made ones if I want noodles, and I make sure there’s plenty of vegetables.

I limited consumption of fats when during younger years, I eat most of the fat especially in pork sinigang (tamarind soup). I also lessened my “patis” (fish sauce) consumption to be a little kinder to my kidneys. I was doing all these changes to encourage my late mother too, per her doctor’s advise.

However, there’s a lot more that I need to do and not do. And thanks to products like “Go Black”. It is a delicious drink that gets rid of the body’s toxins or anything unhealthy that we’ve consume all our lives. It’s a great way to drink and detoxify at the same time.

I encountered these bottles for the first time some years ago and since then, a lot have been drinking them since, they now have several shops where their products can be found and they sell on-line too.

My all-time favorite! =)

The process is unique, it is from 100% food-grade activated charcoal which came from pure and organic coco shells. Not the regular charcoal that we know of, they burn the coconut shells at high heat and zero oxygen allowing the steam and gases to open up millions of pores making each tiny grain a potent detox magnet that can carry 1,000x its own weight.

It comes in powder that doesn’t have an expiration. While for the drinks: Lavender tea and Minty mansi will last up to 2 1/2 months while Honey lemon can last for a month. My favorite variant is the Lavender tea which is the one that caught my eye the first time I saw their booth.

Just in case you haven’t tried it, by the way, it is not a laxative, not only it is a very refreshing drink when chilled, it is definitely healthy and I consider it as one of the best way to detox. =)

The following are their known declared benefits: bloat buster, digestive detox, good for hangover too, cure to indigestion, acid reflux relief, upset stomach solution, skin detox and you would be surprised, it can whiten our teeth too.

Price might have changed already.

-An only daughter. A mother of a 22 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Lately, I have been enjoying quilting and crafting with beaded fabrics. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! However, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, frozen yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food along w/ broccoli, prawns and mushrooms. Of all the International cuisines, Japanese food is on top of my list. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. I started writing even as a child, I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year(s) they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost both my parents already, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for others' success, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
