Healthy is a Lifestyle!

Being healthy is not a diet, a program, a workout goal, or short term "plan" but a LIFESTYLE. Which isn't just about how we look, but how we feel physically and emotionally. We hope to share with you our experiences, knowledge, and resources to help you BE HEALTHY. The purpose of HealthKey HUB is to provide tools that will teach and inform people how to live a healthy lifestyle. We want to remove the confusion surrounding all the healthy advertising out there and just leave you with simply healthy.

Some people choose organic food because on average it is 25% more nutritious in terms of vitamins and minerals, their concern with pesticides, food additives, and environmental reasons. HealthKey HUB, like many people, has found relief from health problems by choosing to go organic, but it's not affordable or convenient for everyone. The more important question you should be asking is are you eating a balanced diet? Did you know that you should be getting 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables per day? Are you even getting one fruit and one vegetable in your body a day?

Contrary to popular belief, the U.S. government doesn't regulate cosmetics for safety, long-term health impacts or environmental damage. Many common cosmetics ingredients are harmful to people and the environment. Consumers can avoid toxic ingredients by using USDA certified organic cosmetics. The trouble is, while the USDA allows cosmetics to be certified organic, it doesn't require it. HealthKey HUB will constantly be writing reviews and recommending products we have tried. Check back frequently for more!
