Alkaline Star Feature: Jennifer Aniston

August 22, 2014

As Santevia is heading to the Emmys this year, let’s take a look at everyone’s favourite Friends star Jennifer Aniston. The positively radiant star is no stranger to the Emmys as she was nominated multiple times and won the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series in 2002 for her performance on the hit sitcom.

Jennifer Aniston, at 45, looks just as good today, if not better than her days as Rachel Green. How does she do it? Through healthy living, fitness, and eating well. She is said to be an ardent fan of the alkaline smoothie, made up of fresh, organic vegetables. Beetroot, cucumbers, spinach, garlic, carrots, celery and kale.

Nutritionist Jeannette Jackson said the smoothie can have amazing and cleansing health benefits.

‘The alkaline vegetables prevent bloating, help ease water retention and even mood swings. Beetroot helps clean the blood of toxins, celery and carrots boost potassium and sodium levels, and kale and parsley offer immense benefits to the brain, so you’ll feel less stressed,’ she said.

Don’t fret if the smoothie seems a bit overwhelming to incorporate into your daily life. You can balance out the pH in your body by drinking Santevia Mineralized Alkaline water. Our On The Go Products, which are featured at the Emmys, are a quick and easy way to ease yourself into the alkaline lifestyle.

The Santevia Energy FlaskTritan Bottle, and Mineral Water Stick are great to take with you wherever you go.

Here is a round up of 10 fitness, health, and life lessons from Jennifer Aniston.

1. Keep your workouts fresh 
“Mixing it up is always fun because that way you know you’re excited, and it’s muscle confusion. It keeps your body awake.” (via Women’s Health)

2. Moderation is key, and indulgence is OK
“I eat really well and I work out, but I also indulge when I want to. … I don’t starve myself in an extremist way. My advice: just stop eating shit every day.”

3. Just say OM
“Yoga kind of helps you prepare for everything.”
(via E!)

4. Exercise can be addicting—and that’s a great thing 
“It’s easy to get addicted to the euphoric feeling of having a good sweat after a run. It wakes up your body.”
(via Now Magazine)

5. It’s okay to say “forget this” if you don’t feel like working out…
“You know what, there are days I go ‘I can’t’ and ‘I don’t want to,’ and I think you just have to listen to your body. So sometimes you just don’t work out.” (via Women’s Health)

6. …but sometimes, just giving it 10 minutes is all it takes to getting past the “I don’t want to work out” stage
“And then there are times when you go, ‘Really? Do you really not want to [work out]?’ And then if you just say, ‘OK, I’m going to get on some machine for 10 minutes,’ you just start to get the endorphins going. Then you feel great, and you just keep going. So sometimes you can actually override the ‘I don’t want to work out.'” (via Women’s Health)

7. Find ways to fit in exercise during your regular routine
“I take eight-pound weights with me whenever I’m staying in a hotel … It’s always good to do arm exercises when you’re watching television or talking on the phone. I also love to stretch before I go to bed, and usually throw in a couple of sit-ups.”
(via InStyle)

8. Don’t waste your time on workouts you hate
“I’m not into boot camp, I don’t need to do all of this—I just want to stay fit! (Laughs) I don’t want to get yelled at—at all. Please stop yelling at me.” (via Women’s Health)

9. Embrace aging, and revel in how great it can be
“They do say youth is wasted on the young, but I feel just as youthful now—if not more—than I did when I was 25. I’m more in my body; I’m more in my mind.”
(via Parade)

10. Get your act together
 “Go to therapy. Clean up all of the shit. Clean up all of the toxins and the noise. Understand who you are. Educate yourself on the self.”
(via Glamour)
