THE BIG BOOST!


YOU no longer need to rely on coffee or caffeine-loaded drinks to keep you up or give you energy. Jarrow, one of the top companies producing pure and natural products like Resveratrol and other vitamins now also has BrainBoost.  So many products are loaded with caffeine or need to be prescribed others need to be refrigerated, BrainBoost is filled with pure ingredients that are in pill form.  The reaction is practically instant, and you feel like you are getting an enriched focus and nervous energy is being left behind. In addition, it leaves you WITHOUT that nervous energy, like the majority of products do that are normally on the shelves.

Before sharing BrainBoost with you, I wanted to try it. I am not paid by Jarrow, nor under any obligation to write about them. This piece is due to the exciting alternative to products that are refined and not so healthy for the body or mind. A college student, who also works almost full time, was asked to write about her experience, which will be featured in this piece.

So What Is Brain Boost…?

The specific enzymes and unprocessed ingredients to promote brain function immediately, as well as for long-term periods, are packed into each BrainBoost capsule. The specific ingredients will be provided at the end of the article. Additional information can be found at www.jarrow.com

In regards to my experience, I felt the boost gently, but it gave me a feeling that allowed me to focus on my work when traditionally I would be tired at that time. It does not disappoint and each time I tried it, the product was effective.

So there is a natural, unrefined product, which allows us to work longer, focus well without drinking five cups of coffee or the latest buzz beverage. Additionally it gives us enzymes we need at the same time it gives as a nudge of a wake up call. Check it out for yourself, and tell me what YOU think!

I asked a journalism student, named Lauren Schiff to share her experience of Brain Boost…

Ok, let’s face it I am a busy girl. I work in a fast-paced technologically driven place and additionally take classes, try to see friends, cook for myself, and attempt to have some free time. I am like much of the population, as I have found that I cannot help my desire to be active and need to be alert and energized, especially when it comes to school and work. As you may guess, I like most students and those I work with, I struggle to get enough hours of sleep. This makes it hard to keep a get-up-and-go attitude.

I was introduced to Jarrow Formulas’ BrainBoost and asked if I would try with the specifications that I be honest when sharing my experience afterwards. I am happy that they asked me and genuinely glad to have been introduced to it, as it has helped make an energetic difference in my daily life. I learned that BrainBoost is generally a wake up vitamin for your brain; it features primarily that factually are chock full of all the good stuff we find naturally in chocolate, high-functioning brain cells, and even periwinkle.

I take the recommended serving size of two capsules (or sometimes even just one!) right before work or class to give my brain a little head start on the day.  The dose does nothing more drastic to the body than simply making me feel like my head is getting more oxygen, more space to breathe, and a little punch of crisp, fresh air.  The formula even boasts not only short-term, but also long-term memory benefits as well. I now use Brain Boost on my own. All I can say is that if you have trouble waking-up or need help focusing and are catching up on hours in the sleeping department, this may be a good option. It certainly is for me.

BrainBoostcombines three well-studied, natural-source ingredients that are useful in promoting brain function both immediately and over the long-term.* These ingredients are 1) ChocoMind®, a cocoa bean extract standardized to contain 12% theobromine and 8% caffeine, 2 Sharp-PS® GOLD phosphatidylserine (PS) omega-3 phospholipids, the form of PS typically found in the brain and known to lead to better omega-3 absorption and 3) Vinpocetine, an alkaloid derived from periwinkle flowers, that has been studied for promoting blood flow and metabolic activity in the brain.*

SUSTAINABLITY, YOU BET!


This is not to put anyone down; it is simply a valid question… Do you know what sustainable means in the context surrounding us today? Simply put, sustainable products, programs and developments create something out of resources that are disrupting our planet and environment. Sustainability has become a necessity in the sea, on land and for mankind. I am not the dictionary version of sustainable, I’m a journalist who is learning how desperately important it is that we not only become more aware of the sustainable products available to us and the need to rebuild our resources.

When did mankind become the sea’s predator, today we are worse then ever.  the documentary movie, The End of The Line by filmmaker Rupert Murray, based on the book by Charles Clover, states that at our current juncture, we will run out of seafood by 2048. Sadly, this is not new news, but if it is to you, check out the film, do not eat Blue Fin Tuna, and read up more about fish that are endangered… most important, don’t eat them! Learn about trolling, an insane way that fishermen catch fish, they should be called poachers, not fishermen.

Did you know that Mitsubishi is into the Fish Market? They are stocking up and freezing the endangered Blue Fin Tuna, this allows them to mark it up to a ridiculous price. However, we are human beings and have a choice, we can shift the way we are going by becoming aware and making different choices.

Here are a few sustainable companies worth checking out…                             www.Threadsforthought.com that manufactures cozy, comfortable clothing made out of Organic Cotton, and recycled bottles. Try sustainable, fabulous Wines that you can find on www.uncorqed.com such as www.ClosPepeVineyards.com and valuable sustainable information on the website, www.shft.com

Sustainability supports what we have been given and it is up to us to give it back. Don’t you think kindergartners today deserve to live in a world that provides life, not extinction? Let’s not eat ourselves up.

Paraben Free Boutique Update!


There was a mistake made last week when I listed the name of the boutique in Beverly Hills, that provides the majority of Paraben Free products, the name is SAVVY in Beverly Hills, not Sassy! The owner is definitely Sassy, so enjoy yourself. As mentioned free make-overs, excellent products for men and women on South Beverly Drive.

COMING UP… A big bang of Brain Boost without the negative results, plus new products that will make your day!

Happy Weekend. More soon~!

BARE NATURALLY!


Hi Everyone,

Thanks for checking in! I’m sorry for not having new posts for the past week but I was out with the flu. Who heard of such a thing in the Summer?

I have something great for women especially in the summer, it is completely natural and most likely you have it in your home! If you want your legs, elbows, feet, etc., to be as soft as a bare baby’s bottom… this is the way to do it, naturally.

Ingredients:

SEA SALT, JOJOBA OIL, or Grape Seed, Vitamin E…

READ THE LABEL! Sometimes an Oil will say it is something but the ingredients show other additives. Just make sure it is pure and Paraben free.

Mix 3 part oil to one part Sea Salt and swirl together, then put it on your body as you would a purchased salt or sugar scrub. This feels better,  it is A LOT less money, and so simple, plus the outcome of  bare baby bottom soft skin! Yes, soft elbows.

If you live in Los Angeles, a store in Beverly Hills on South Beverly Drive recently opened called SASSY. The owner is great and she features mostly Paraben free beauty products and skin and hair products  for both men and women.  She has a large variety so make sure and ask for the Paraben free products. She does free Make-up applications.

Please let me know what you think.

Shortly we will be featuring women and men just like you and me for make on’s. A refreshing look at  individuals beauty with Paraben free cosmetics and products. For Men we will be doing skin and hair. There will be  before and after photos. We will NOT be doing the before frown after smile… This blog is real, so the results will be too.

Don’t forget to chime in. Requests regarding product information, questions, comments… I look forward to it.
