RESVERATROL… NOT EVERY R IS THE SAME!


Have you noticed that when a product is considered “HOT” on the market it appears in and on EVERYTHING!  Resveratrol is one of those products. Be careful what you wish for… You might just purchase the wrong Resveratrol!

Everyone from the Mayo Clinic to believe it or not UTUBE has something to say about Resveratrol. In short, Resveratrol is an antioxidant and similar to red wine (In moderation,) is considered to be good for the heart. The youthful factor is now tagged onto everything Resveratrol from tonics to face spritz!

I have spoken with several Doctors, who have stated that findings on Resveratrol are beneficial, but the data is new, and more research needs to be done. I wanted to try it out for myself, and in doing my own research, as I suggest to you, read many labels. I did this and then purchased Resveratrol 100 by Jarrow Formulas. The brand is not paying me to write about them, nor do they know that I am one of their customers. The company is a reputable one; please feel free to check them out. What I like about Resveratrol 100 is that is offers 100 mg of Resveratrol. Many supplements have great looking packages but the inside contents include additional ingredients. RESV 100 as I am calling it includes Vitamin C and Resveratrol, that is it and that is what I like about it.

I have been taking it about two months, and in my personal opinion, it is too early to make major claims about it. I can tell you that I am also taking ACAI Berry (More about that product on a different post), and although it is too early to make major claims, I do feel good over these past two months of product use. Used as directed they are not harmful and my Doctor gave them the thumbs up!

If you want to try Resveratrol, please make sure you are actually getting the real thing. Write me and tell me about your experience. Do not expect miracles, if a  product says it will take ten years off your age, and it does not include Yoga or a Surgical knife, it is most likely full of it. To those who have created Resveratrol 100, thank you. Every little bit helps!

HIGH RANKING POMEGRANATES… Not All Juices Are A Like!


On May 10, 2010, I started writing a  new post on knowing your juices, including the  benefits of Pomegranate Juice. Today, 5/12, Yahoo posts front page, from Men’s Health, “The Unhealthiest Juices in America. Parabenfree and Organic Blog provides you front page, vital information before the magazine is off the press. This blog is for YOU, delivering  accurate information and where to get it. Drink Up and read on…   Your comments are  appreciated!

Pomegranates are an A List Star when it comes to the vast benefits this fruit provides our bodies. Additional to the folic acid, fiber and anti-oxidants, Pomegranates are a rich source of Vitamin C.

Not all Pomegranate Juices are alike. The bottle may say fresh, but check it, because it could be concentrated, which means you are not getting fresh Pomegranate juice. Your best bet is Evolution Fresh, you can find the brand and their variety of natural juices, fruits and vegetables at Whole Foods, Ralphs, Bristol Farms and Gelsons. Evolution Fresh’s supreme quality and gratifying taste delivers a Pomegranate juice full of flavor, nutrients and no bitter after taste. Their delicious tasting Pomegranate juice leaves you wanting more and their Apple juice is addictive!  www.evolutionfresh.com

HIGH POINT POMEGRANTE NEWS! Pomegranate juice is known to lower bad cholesterol and stimulate the immune system. Pomegranate juice helps alleviate post-menopausal and menopausal symptoms due to the Phytoestrogen found in the Pomegranate seeds. Pomegranate juice is beneficial for those with digestive disorders by stimulating digestion. A UCLA study indicates that drinking a glass of pomegranate juice every day can assist in slowing down the spread of prostate cancer, the leading cause of death of men in the USA. It is important to drink up when it comes to this FRESH purple juice!

At the Farmers Market Apple Sherrill Orchard’s Pomegranate natural juices are tasty; they have a variety of flavors and several juices are made kid friendly. It is a family run business. The juices come straight from the farm to the farmers market. Obviously, it is bottled in-between. In my opinion, their juice has a rich, non-bitter taste that can often be found in Pomegranate juice. The contact information is below. If you live in Los Angeles, CA, you can find them at any Farmers Market.
