Pine Bros Softish Throat Drops Review

Image
Now that the colder weather is here, I sometimes reflect back to the winters when I was a kid. Waiting for the school bus, bundled up from head to toe, there was one thing that I relished the whole day through...the package of cherry-flavored cough drops that were stashed in either my backpack or pocket. I absolutely loved the flavor so much, that I couldn't resist crunching them up in a matter of seconds. Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops have been soothing America's throats for over 140 years. My favorite of the 4 flavors ,Honey, Wild Cherry, and Licorice the honey was my favorite.

They are sold in economy size bags and convenient and refillable pucks, which are perfect for toting around in your handbag, car or backpack. I was ready to experience these softish and chewy lozenges for myself and love what I discovered! The Wild Cherry flavor was superb...not too overpowering, but definitely tasty. I also enjoyed the overall shape of the Pine Bros. Softish Throat Drops. Th…

Review : Nordic Naturals Supplements

Image
Omega-3 fatty acids (also known as n-3 fatty acids) are polyunsaturated fatty acids that are essential nutrients for health. We need omega-3 fatty acids for numerous normal body functions, such as controlling blood clotting and building cell membranes in the brain, and since our bodies cannot make omega-3 fats, we must get them through food. Omega-3 fatty acids are also associated with many health benefits, including protection against heart disease and possibly stroke. New studies are identifying potential benefits for a wide range of conditions including cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, and other autoimmune diseases such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

There are two major types of omega-3 fatty acids in our diets: One type is alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is found in some vegetable oils, such as soybean, rapeseed (canola), and flaxseed, and in walnuts. ALA is also found in some green vegetables, such as Brussels sprouts, kale, spinach, and salad greens. The other type…

Cellulite and Body Firming Cream Review

Image
Cellulite is an ugly thing, but we all have it- even supermodels! Yes, they do. It doesn’t seem to matter what diets you try or how you work out or how much you work out, you always seem to find that cellulite glaring at you in the mirror.

. I really had high hopes for this cream and figured good or bad, it couldn’t do any harm. I really like that this product is made in the USA. That’s one thing that’s a huge selling point for me. I prefer USA made products to China, etc. made products. I also like that this cream can supposedly firm, tone, and potentially eliminate cellulite. I find this a tall order to fill, but we shall see.

After actually using the product for over a week, I can see some slight improvement, but I’m sure it will take more time and use to see more of a difference. My legs seem to be a little a bit more toned, and I think I notice a little reduction in the appearance of the cellulite on my legs. I hope this is real and not in my imagination! I really do want to …

Matcha Tea

Image
Matcha is a type of green tea that comes in powdered form. Matcha tea is prepared by whisking matcha powder with hot water, which forms a frothy liquid. Matcha powder is also sometimes used as an ingredient in foods and non-tea beverages (such as smoothies). Long used in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony, matcha has recently gained popularity among tea drinkers in Western countries. Matcha vs. Green Tea Unlike most green teas, matcha contains the entire leaf of the Camellia sinensis (the species of plant used to make green tea, black tea, oolong tea, and white tea). In cultivating matcha, the plant is shade-grown for several weeks prior to harvest. After harvesting the plants, processors grind the leaves into a fine powder. Uses for Matcha Some proponents claim that matcha contains more antioxidants than other forms of green tea. In addition, matcha is purported to promote weight loss, lower cholesterol levels and blood pressure, support detox efforts, enhance mood, reduce s…
