With news articles and stories all over the internet, I’m sure you’ve heard the words:  “Sea Buckthorn berry” before, I know I have and over the last few months, it’s become quite popular.  Dr. Oz calls it the “Miracle Berry” and others rave about how it’s a power-packed super fruit that should be on everyone’s radar.  So – what is this berry and why is it becoming so popular?  Today, I’m going to share with you some sea buckthorn products from SeabuckWonders and hopefully I can share with you a little more on this product so you are armed with some information.

The sea buckthorn berry has over 190 phytonutrients and fatty acids (ALL the omegas: 3, 6, 9 and the rae Omega-7) that help to protect against many diseases (including breast cancer), but it also provides soothing relief to many.  Many breast cancer patients use sea buckthorn products to reduce the negative effects from chemotherapy and radiation treatments and there are a variety of different uses for this berry in general.  For those that are looking for an improvement in your skin – sea buckthorn if filled with antioxidants, vitamins A, E and beta-carotene.  With a treasure chest of nutrients, sea buckthorn has been a secret beauty aid in Eastern Asia for over a 1000 years to provide the lasting and necessary benefits for ever-lasting beauty.

Seabuck thorn berry oil is not only high in Omega-7 which helps to moisturize the cell membranes, but the anti-inflammatory properties can have a hugely positive effect on blood levels.  I was especially intrigued by this particular miracle berry because of the recent health issues I’ve been experiencing and sea buckthorn berry is known to help maintain healthy blood pressure levels while reducing  inflammation, dry-eye symptoms, vaginal dryness and dry skin conditions.  It can also assist in hydrating the digestive tract and internal organs and I love that it’s great for the skin and nails – which for me take a beating during the colder months.

So – now that I’ve given you a little information on this miracle berry – I’m going to share with you a brand and their products that I’ve been using over the course of the last few months.  I’m excited to share these with you because I love products that are affordable and easy to attain.

SeabuckWonders is the first company that brought Sea Buckthorn products to the United States.  The sea buckthorn berries that they harvest are exclusively harvested from the prestine Tibetan region where high altitude and harsh environment have equipped the sea buckthorn with extraordinary biodefense mechanisms with numerous life-giving nutrients such as the rare Omega-7.  The SeabuckWonders 100% pure Sea Buckthorn oil contains up to 30-35% Omega-7, the highest concentration known in the natural world, that provides the best results possible.  All of SeabuckWonders products are made of 100% Pure, USDA Certified Organice Sea Buckthorn Oil, are Kosher Certified and are also Non-GMO Project Verfied and Gluten Free.

I tried four products from the line and have my eyes set on a few others that are on my wishlist to pick up.  The first I’m going to talk to you about is the Ultimate Hair, Skin and Nails Supplement ($34.97 – 60 vegan softgels / 500 mg each).  This supplement helps you to go below the hair, skin and nails to the root of any problems.  By combining biotin with the cell membrane nurturing properties of sea buckthorn oil, the blend offers the best support for strength and beauty.  As I mentioned previously, winter takes a toll on my body (especially my hair, skin and nails) and I make it a point to take a daily supplement to help with this.  The SeabuckWonders Ultimate Hair, Skin & Nails supplement (with Omega-7 and Biotin) have helped to keep my hair stronger than usual while keeping my scalp moisturized so I don’t experience dry, itchy or flakiness.  I noticed after about 2 weeks of taking this supplement that my nails grew faster (my nails naturally are long and grow, but they are at their strongest during the summer months and tend to be brittle during winter).  They not only were growing faster but also stronger without treatment of my cuticles.  My skin is not as dry as it usually is during the winter which to me is probably the biggest plus to see.  Normally – my skin is so dry I am lathering layers of moisturizer to combat my Eczema.  This is the first winter in a long time since I’ve experienced an Eczema flare up thanks to my skin being so hydrated.

  •  Cell membrane nurturing Omega-7
  •  5000 mcg of Biotin
  •  Vegan
  •  Gluten Free
  •  Available in 60 vegan softgels/500 mg each

This is the first winter in a long time since I’ve experienced an Eczema flare up thanks to my skin being so hydrated.

The SeabuckWonders Himalayan Sea Buckthorn Exfoliating Facial Cleanser ($16.97 – 4 fl.oz / 120 mL) has also been a welcoming part of my skin care routine.  During the winter my skin is so dry that I often layer on different types of moisturizing products but it can also cause my skin to look and feel dull while also causing me to breakout.  This exfoliating facial cleanser has been awesome to use the last several months because it not only deep cleans my skin but boosts my skin’s vibrancy.  It’s gentle and doesn’t strip my skin of it’s natural oils (which I definitely need) but still exfoliates my skin, leaving it smooth and clearing up my complexion.  This is a facial cleanser that is ideal for all skin types because of it’s nutritional properties and leaves my skin feeling clean, balanced and just awesome.

The SeabuckWonders Himalayan Sea Buckthorn Facial Cream ($19.97 – 1 fl.oz. / 30mL) has also been a great addition to my skin care regimen.  This product includes all the great ingredients that the others do like the Omegas (including Omega-7) and packs a lot of moisture for my dry skin while still keeping my skin in balance.  Absolutely lightweight and applies like a breeze, my skin drinks this facial cream up and stays moisturized and rejuvenated all day long.  This facial cream helps to minimize my fine lines while smoothing and softening my complexion.  I also enjoy the added benefit of it protecting my skin from the damaging effects of the sun and environmental pollutants.

SeabuckWonders Himalayan Sea Buckthorn Body Lotion ($14.97 – 6 fl.oz. / 180 mL) was also a hit for me.  It was awarded the Delicious Living Beauty & Body Award in 2013 and I can definitely see why.  Filled with a potent infusion of Omega 3, 6, 9 and the powerful skin-healing Omega 7, SeabuckWonders Body Lotion provides nourishment with age-defying properties for soft and healthy skin.  I think this product will easily be a favorite of mine for years to come, especially during the winter.  It’s intensely moisturizing without feeling oily/greasy or sticky.  When applied to the skin, it soaks right in while leaving my skin and body feeling touchable soft.  With a high concentration of sea buckthorn oil, this lotion allows for superior moisture retention while protecting the skin from various signs of aging and effects of exposure to the sun.  My knees, elbows and feel LOVE this lotion and I love the light orange scent.  It’s amazing!

I have my eyes set on a few other products to try from SeabuckWonders, especially the supplements.   As I mentioned previously, I have been dealing with a plethora of health ailments, so adding some new supplements to my regiment will surely help.  I’m beyond impressed with the products I’ve tried so far and I am definitely interested in picking up and ordering more that SeabuckWonders offers.

Like I mentioned previously, each product is reasonably priced – in fact, it’s quite affordable when you think of the benefits.  SeabuckWonders products were the first I’ve tried with Sea Buckthorn Oil and my experiencing has definitely been a positive one.  I know this was a lengthy review/feature, but I wanted to make sure you had as much information as possible to be able to make a decision on whether or not you wanted to try these.  As I say with anything I talk about here, my experience with one product may be different from those that you may have.  It’s important to make an informed decision before trying anything obviously, but I love sharing products I’ve been enjoying.

Joint supplements like Glucosamine and Chondroitin are so essential to your overall joint health and one of the reasons why my husband and I make sure to take these daily.  I have used products from Zenwise Labs before and their Joint Support offers a lot of product for a reasonable cost, making it an ideal supplement that is affordable.

Zenwise Labs Joint Support Pro-Mobility Formula

Zenwise Labs Joint Support Pro-Mobility Formula contains a powerful blend of Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM that has been shown to reduce aches, pains, soreness and inflammation in the joints.  The specialized formula also helps to restore strength, lubrication and collagen in the joints which can assist in improving mobility, flexibility and overall well-being of men and women.

I’m mentioned in previous posts that my husband has issues with his back and wrist, resulting in extreme pain at times making him uncomfortable.  With the suggestion from our physician, my husband has been taking joint support supplements such as this one and has been including it as a part of his supplement regimen.  This is our second bottle that we have been taking and after a few short months, we truly enjoy this brand.  You get 180 tablets (3x a day) for under $20 which is a great deal.  Each tablet is fairly large but very easy to swallow making taking this easy and effortless.

The Joint Support supplements contain 1500mg Glucosamine, 1200mg Chondroitin, 1000mg MSM & Hyaluronic Acid that can help relieve ailing joints:

– Promotes Enhanced Mobility & Flexibility
– Soothes & Lubricates Joints
– Protects from Gradual Cartilage & Tissue Breakdown
– Reduces Inflammation
– Lessens Aches & Pains

So does this product work?  Well, as I mentioned previously – this is our second bottle from this particular brand and we like it.  A supplement alone cannot get rid of your pain on its own but used in combination with other products, exercises and treatment will help.  I have noticed that my aches and pains have definitely decreased some – my husband agrees to the same for him.  And, inflammation is much less than before.  Overall – I know this is a brand my husband and I will continue to use.

I have talked about NeoCell here before and wanted to share my thoughts on another product I have been using from the brand.  NeoCell Derma Matrix Collagen Skin Complex was something new to me when I was first given the product.  But, with new inventions in the beauty industry each day – I was very interested to see whether or not this was a product I would like.  I am constantly reminded that I am not getting any younger, so any product that I can use to try and slow down the aging process I’m experiencing, I’m all for.

REVIEW: NeoCell Derma Matrix Collagen Skin Complex

With advanced ingredients designed to internally nourish the skin, Derma Matrix’s formula uses BioActive NeoCell Collagen which is created through a propriety micronization process.  The product dissolves instantly in water, juice or your favorite smoothie and is standardized to be both bioavailable and bioactibe for maximum absorption and efficacy.

 This product helps to promote reduction of lines and wrinkles, increases hydration by 21%+ and supports cell turnover & elasticity.  After taking this product for about a month with my water or green juice, I noticed that my skin feels moisturized and hydrated, even before I add my normal moisturizing products.  During the Winter months – this is key since my skin is very dry and needs the added moisture to keep my Eczema from having a flare up.
This product is Clinically Tested with 92% of people experiencing an increase in skin hydration and 65% of people experiencing firmer & softer skin.  I have noticed my skin definitely is softer, more hydrated and in some places, firmer.  This product includes some of my favorite ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C.
Derma_supp_fact
I’m quite impressed with this product and I love that it is so easy to take.  NeoCell offers such awesome products for supplements and I have been liking this one.  It doesn’t really have much of a flavor so mixing it with juice or your favorite smoothie will result in no flavor or taste you don’t like.  I prefer to drink with my green juice, because I can slightly taste it when I mix it with water.  It’s not completely flavorless, but not a bad taste, just my preference.
You can purchase this product and others at places like Whole Foods, Vitamin World, GNC and other locations that carry supplements Nationwide.  For about $24.99 (6.46oz / 183g) you get to help your skin with great ingredients.  I’m loving this and I know that this is one supplement that is not only easy to take, but something I’ll continue to use.

As many people know, I take daily supplements to help with my health and well being.  One of those are Omega 3 Supplements – otherwise known as Fish Oil.  The Life & Food Omega 3 Supreme Fish Oil is one that I have been loving because it not only has the ingredients in the supplements that I need, but it’s easy to take.  While many think that Fish Oil is not mandatory or needed in their diet, for me it is beneficial and has been so helpful in my day to day that I find it a necessity.  Today – I’m gonna share with you a little about this brand and what I like about this specific product.

Are You Taking Your Fish Oil?  Life & Food Omega 3 Supreme Supplements

Life & Food Omega 3 Supreme Softgels retail for about $30.00 and are enteric coated and pharmaceutical grade.  These capsules are easy to swallow – really easy, considering their size and they have not funky after taste… woohoo – no fish burps.  I love that as many of the supplements I have taken in the past give me a funky fish after taste or make my breath smell weird.  Each capsule is molecurlarly distilled for healthy heart, brain and joint support.  I take two capsule soft gels a day – but spread them out by taking one in the morning with breakfast and one at night with dinner though you can take them both together.

Omega 3 Supreme has been shown by research to promote cardiovascular health, joint support, circulation and helps in maintaining cholesterol levels.  The softgel has a purely refined fish oil that contains a higher concentration of pharmaceutical grade Omega 3’s than the standard Fish Oil supplements.  The product comes from a fishery that has been independently certified to the MSC’s standard for a well-managed and sustainable fishery.

Since I have take so many different supplements with fish oil and similar attributes, I was not sure that I needed to change the brand I use but I’m glad I did and started with this one.  It makes it so easy to take and considering my supplement stack and medicine I have to take for my health already – these are really easy to swallow.

These supplements are also quite affordable.  With 180 softgels included, you get 75% Omega 3 potency and 1400 mg per serving of fish oil concentrate.  The softgels are made with Bovine Gelatin which make it easy to swallow and consume and again – no fishy taste or burps.

I definitely suggest you trying this particular brand or softgel if you are looking to try Omega 3’s or are looking for a new type of supplement.  I have really enjoyed taking these as a part of my daily intake of vitamins.  Like with all supplements or vitamins, please consult your physician prior to use as I am not a medical professional and simply stating my results with this product.

I have discussed my husband’s aches and pains in previous posts and have mentioned before that we have him on different joint and inflammation support supplements to help with such.  But, about 10 months ago he injured his wrist at work and I have been on the hunt to try and get a product for him to use that can help him so that he doesn’t need to take pain medication but has some form of relief.  We have tried different Turmeric supplements and find that it is a great dietary supplement additive to take to help not only with inflammation, but for heart health and healthy joint maintenance.   Recently my husband has started taking Total Renu Turmeric Curcumin as a part of his health supplements.  Taken as a part of his daily supplement regimen, this product helps with anti-inflammatory properties and with inflammation and joint pain.

Thicker, Longer, Beautiful Hair - My Hair Story With Hair La Vie

Being born and raised in Hawaii, I have had long hair my entire life.  In my teen years, my hair was so long it came down to my knees.  It’s a part of my culture and having danced Hula for most of my childhood, it was kind of a necessity.  After having my eldest son (11 years ago), I noticed that my hair started thinning and was not as strong as it use to be in my younger years.  Then, having my twins almost 6 years ago left my hair in disarray and my hair was not only thinning near my hair line, but it was weak and it shed a lot.  I have also caused severe damage to my locks with excessive bleaching and processing, which caused my hair to be brittle as well.  Over the years I have tried many things to help with my hair – not necessarily for the growth of it since my hair grows quickly naturally, but to help with the strengthening of my locks.  While some worked, some didn’t and I continued on my hair journey to find the supplements, natural tonics and formulas that would help.  About 9 months ago I started using Hair La Vie Revitalizing Hair Blend and have noticed a huge difference in  how my hair feels, looks and how strong it is.  Today, I’m sharing with you my Hair Story and how Hair La Vie helped my hair journey.

Thicker, Longer, Beautiful Hair - My Hair Story With Hair La Vie

Over the last year I have been taking Hair La Vie from La Muse.  While I do not take it consistently, I probably have taken a total of 4 bottles over the course of the last 8 months or so,  I have tried to incorporate into my daily supplements.  This product is easy to swallow since it comes in a capsule that makes taking it simple and I take two capsules a day – one in the morning and one in the evening.  The pill is rather large, but swallowing it has never been an issue for me.  With ingredients like Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, Biotin and Folic Acid (to name a few), Hair La Vie offers a wide variety of beneficial ingredients to help promote longer, fuller hair with faster results.  My hair naturally grows quickly, so I do not necessarily notice much growth with this product, but I do notice how strong and full my hair has become over the last several months.

Thicker, Longer, Beautiful Hair - My Hair Story With Hair La Vie

Hair La Vie is formulated to be an all-natural product, with clinically proven ingredients.  It helps to repair and stimulate your hair’s growth from the inside out and leaves you with longer, fuller hair that grows faster than ever before.  This product is perfect for hair that has been cut too short, is damaged (like mine is from all the bleaching) and thinning or balding (which I have been experiencing from past pregnancies).  My hair not only looks and feels fuller and healthy but I love that I’m not pulling my hair out of the shower drain because I’ve noticed a huge decrease in shedding.

  • 20 all-natural, clinically proven ingredients
  • 1370mg proprietary active ingredient blend (highest on the market)
  • 5000mcg biotin (most competitors have 2500 or lower)
  • No synthetic fillers, binders, or additives

Last week I chopped off about 6 inches from my hair to allow for it to be healthy again and my curls to be revived.  After taking Hair La Vie the last month, I noticed that my hair is looking fuller once again and areas where my hair was thinning after pregnancy now look fuller.  While my hair grows rather quickly – I chop off about 6 inches every 4 months and it grows almost as fast, I noticed that over the years my hair shed a lot and my locks were not as thick as they once were due to pregnancy, age and just overall health and weather.  With the assistance of Hair La Vie, my locks are now stronger, have more bounce and are thicker and healthy looking.  I even noticed that my hair is much shinier than before.  My biggest improvement is the growth along the hair line.  Near my hair line by my temples of my head, I was experiencing receding after having my twins.  Thinning and receding were discussed in previous posts and you could noticeably see that there was a bald spot.  Look at the photo below… do you see a bald spot?  My hair line is full and filled in and where I had noticeable receding over the years is now but a memory – THANK YOU HAIR LA VIE.  This is the ONLY product that I have used that has filled in my hair line completely – after only 2 months of consistent use.  I noticed after the first month that my receding hair line was less visible and now two months after the constant use of Hair La Vie, I don’t even notice the bald spots and you wouldn’t either.

This photo was taken after I cut my hair recently.

Hair La Vie Revitalizing Hair Blend is affordable.  I have tried different supplements that can retail for quite a hefty cost but that is not the case as a 30 day supply is just $39 and they offer discounts if you buy more than one.  Since I’ve noticed such a huge improvement in my hair, I will definitely continue using Hair La Vie to keep my hair looking and feeling healthy and to encourage healthy growth and strong locks.  I hope I can continue to keep Hair La Vie in my beauty regimen to promote healthy hair in my life.  Again, I have tried many products as well as taking regular Biotin, but Hair La Vie is my absolutely favorite.

Have you tried Hair La Vie products before?  If not, what hair supplements have you taken and have they worked for you in the past?

Skin care is such an important part of any beauty regimen which I have stressed and talked about many times before in the past.  But many do not realize that taking care of your skin isn’t just about what you put on top of it – but what goes inside of your body.  It’s important to make sure that you are hydrating your body – water is definitely essential and protecting your skin, SPF / Sunscreen is VERY important.  But, there are products on the market today that can help you with your skin and it’s in a tasty little treat – not a pill form.

Get Beautiful and Radiant Skin With NeoCell Beauty Bursts

In the last month, I have added a new product to my skin care regimen.  NeoCell Beauty Bursts are gourmet super chews that taste pretty good – actually, I think they are delicious and deliver a high absorption of beauty nutrients in two little bite size goodies.  With key ingredients like Super Collagen 1&3 which is the body’s beauty protein and strengthens skin, hair and nails and Hyaluronic Acid – which is nature’s moisturizer and my favorite beauty secret – the NeoCell Beauty Bursts help to build beautiful skin from the inside out.

Beauty Bursts taste pretty good for a product that is considered a supplement.  It tastes like mint chocolate and are soft and easy to chew.  It is suggested that you take 2 to 4 soft chews daily.  I prefer to take two since I already take a lot of supplements on a daily basis.  I will take them in the morning after breakfast.  I love that these are available because I take a plethora of supplements daily – from multi vitamins, hair supplements, Fish Oil and more and that doesn’t include my daily medications I take for my asthma and allergies so this makes it so much easier.  The product is made right here in the USA and does not contain soy, wheat, lactose, palm oil, starch, yeast or artificial flavors.

Get Beautiful and Radiant Skin With NeoCell Beauty Bursts

This product has an all natural formula with good flavor and if you are not good with a beauty routine that includes serums, etc – this may be a product you may want to try.  I love that all the essential ingredients in serums that I use daily are in this product so if I’m in a rush and can’t apply my normal skin products, many are still included in the chews:  i.e. Collagen Type 1 & 3, Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C.

I also love that these make it easy to continue with your beauty regimen while traveling.  No more having to worry if the size of your serums will meet the TSA regulations for travel, these fit in your purse or carry on and you’re good to go.

Get Beautiful and Radiant Skin With NeoCell Beauty Bursts

Have you tried anything like this product before to help with beautiful skin?  This is my first time trying a soft chew that offers this, but I have taken the pill form from another brand several times.  Overall – I love that I have this option available to me and while they aren’t a Kit Kat Bar or Twix, they still taste pretty good considering the ingredients and how helpful this will be for me.

I’ve mentioned a few times on my site before about the aches and pains my husband has had to endure over the years and his current injuries.  Because of this, we try our best to find supplements that we can take in place of pain medication to help relieve the pain that he experiences.  While we have yet to find a product that will help him get rid of his pain altogether (he has been told he needs surgery), it is always great to find supplements that offer Anti-Inflammatory benefits at a reasonable cost.  For more details about my husband’s injuries – click here.  Recently my husband has been trying out the Eu Natural Primal Anti-Inflammatory Supplement for pain relief and here are our thoughts on the product.

Primal Joint Support Anti-Inflammatory for Pain Relief

PRESS SAMPLE

Now, no one really enjoys taking pills to help alleviate the pain, especially if they are supplements since those tend to be much larger in size than a normal pill, but if there is a possibility that something may help – why not try it?

Eu Natural’s Anti-inflammatory joint support pain relief retails for $59.99 (currently on sale for $49.95) and includes 90 capsules which is a 30 day supply.  You one capsule three times a day (3 total each day) before a meal with a minimum of 8 oz of water.  These pills are about the average size you would expect a supplement to be, but they are fairly easy to swallow.

Primal Joint Support Anti-Inflammatory for Pain Relief

Although the pain did not decrease entirely, there was some relief after a few short days of taking the supplement.  The taste is not ideal and neither is the smell, it really smells like a vitamin but stronger, that really is the only drawback besides the size of the capsule.

Primal-Joint-Support-Label

Overall – considering the amount of products on the market today for anti-inflammatory support, this product worked quickly and while it doesn’t relieve all of the pain, it definitely takes some of the edge off sometimes.  From personal experience, I find that this product has helped with my mobility in my knees which is a huge plus.  Normally at the end of the day my knees start to hurt as does my ankles and after taking this supplement I noticed that my aches and pains are still there, but not as bad.

Like with any supplement I always suggest that you check with your physician prior to using the product.  There are various ingredients that your body may not agree with, so be sure to get approval first prior to use.  No fillers are included in this product and I like that it is made in the USA.

Phytoceramides Skin & Hair Renewal Formula

 PRESS SAMPLE

I’m always looking for products that will help strengthen my hair and hydrate my skin and if it is something that requires little to no work and great results, I’m all for it.  In the last month I have been taking the Phytoceramides Skin & Hair Renewal Formula as a part of my vitamin and supplement regimen.  This product offers 30 capsules (a 30 day supply) for about $20 on sale ($36.00 retail price).  One tablet a day as a part of your natural dietary supplement and it claims to erase fine lines and wrinkles, hydrate and restore your skin and strengthen your hair and nails.  This is a veggie capsule that is easy to swallow and works best when you take it 20-30 minutes before a meal with an 8 ounce glass o water.  Now, I’m no doctor but offer the information on this product per my use so I do suggest you consult with a physician prior to use.

Phytoceramides Skin & Hair Renewal Formula

These capsules are not as big as some on the market, and I am impressed with how easy they are to swallow.  They are said to be a “Face lift in a bottle” and while I certainly do not look like I had a face lift, I do notice that my skin is soft and smooth and feels much more hydrated then when I used my regular moisturizer on its own.  I do suggest your water intake increase when taking these capsules because I often felt like I was constantly thirsty, though I do take in quite a bit of water during the day (more than the suggested amount) and I’m constantly hydrating my body.  I’m not sure if it is the ingredients in the product itself, but be sure to stay hydrated.

Ingredients
Vitamin A 5000 IU, Vitamin C 60 mg, Vitamin D 400 IU, Vitamin E 30 IU, Phytoceramides (From Rice) 40 mg. Other Ingredients: Vegetable Cellulose (Veggie Cap), Purified Water, Magnesium Stearate, Stearic Acid, Silicon Dioxide.

Phytoceramides Skin & Hair Renewal Formula

While I don’t think I’ve been taking these supplements long enough to see a large difference in my skin and hair I did notice a few things that stood out to me.  My hair hasn’t had as much breakage as it used to – though there are many factors that I know can contribute to that and one of them is that it is starting to cool off where I live and therefore, my hair doesn’t shed or break as often.  I can say that I did notice that my hair doesn’t seem as weak.  I also noticed that my nails are not chipping on the ends like they often do.  As many know, I take a daily vitamin supplement as well as Biotin from time to time and my chipping nails has always been a problem, but I noticed that it hasn’t been chipping as much.  While my skin may not have necessarily changed dramatically, I definitely notice that if I have a small pimple or a little break out, it healed within a day without me treating it as I normally did and I also noticed that some of my fine lines and wrinkles under my eyes look small and less defined.  While I can also contribute these to the use of great skincare items, I think that working together, they can all accomplish these things for me.

There is virtually no scent and no after taste – which I love and considering the cost, these capsules are a pretty reasonable addition to any skincare and hair care regimen.  Remember, I’m not a doctor or a professional in this matter, so be sure to check with your physician before taking any supplements or vitamins. 🙂

Aches and pains come in a wide variety for many people… and in our family – my husband and I suffer from inflammation and  injuries that cause uncomfortable daily pain.  Supplements and healthy eating eating help us with pain control so that pain medicines – especially narcotics are not needed as often.

Nutraviva Turmeric Curcumin Supplement

 

PRESS SAMPLE

About 3 years ago my husband was diagnosed with a Perforated disk between the L4 and L5 region in his spine, that leaks spinal fluid and irritates the nerve causing inflammation.  Now, this diagnoses came after a few years of suffering without knowing the cause.  Pain medication, anti-inflammatory medicine and even Cortisone shots are all provided to him to assist with pain management and while they may take the edge off sometimes (not all the time), my husband literally lives day in and day out in constant pain.  We are very selective in our physical activities in that one wrong move could cripple him and doctors do not want to operate since he is so young and having to redo the surgery several times through out the rest of his live will be inevitable once the surgery is performed.  I have minor injuries – all of which are a challenge to work with, but compared to my husband – not nearly as bad.

While we live daily with our aches and pains, we both do our best to increase the quality of our life by including healthy eating, exercise and of course supplements to increase mobility as well as decrease our pain levels.  Since pain medicine is not something we enjoy taking or the side effects it gives to both of us, we try not to take them as much as possible.  I have been reading about Turmeric and the benefits it offered so my husband and I were very excited to try this supplement out and see how it worked for both of us.  Honestly, the benefits of Turmeric are quite plentiful so we were excited to see and feel what it could do for us.  Even if it didn’t help tremendously with our normal pains, since both my husband and I are experience signs of Arthritis, we were in hopes to see some relief there.

Nutraviva Turmeric Curcumin Supplement

I’m not gonna lie, the pills are kind of larger than I had expected and it freaked me out quite a bit.  I love the fact that when you do take them however, that they do not have any funky after taste or any taste at all – major bonus.  Keep in mind though, that because they are so large, make sure you swallow it with a lot of water so it goes down easily.  After taking the pill just two days – my husband and I both noticed that while still achy and sore, our inflammation was tolerable.  MAJOR BONUS!  After a month of using the product while we still have pain and inflammation, we definitely noticed the difference in our mobility and how we felt.  It’s hard to explain because we still experience pain, but you can tell a difference in how our body reacts to certain things and how we feel.  Mind you – this is not a cure all, pain be gone type of pill but a supplement to help with ease of pain as well as other benefits.

After reading about Turmeric, some of the benefits include:  Ease of Arthritic Pain, Bad Cholesterol, Inflammation, Blood Sugar Imbalances, Promotes Heart Health, Aids in Digestion, Helps prevent the early manifestation of Parkinson’s Disease, slows or delays Liver damage, slows or helps reverse Alzheimer’s Disease, Insulin Resistance, helps heal inflammatory bowl disease.  This list is a small one compared to what I have been reading about Turmeric.  While I’m not a doctor, it’s been nice to find different articles and first hand reviews on the product itself.

Like I mentioned earlier, this is not necessarily a cure all – or at least not yet or not for us as of yet… but it has helped to make pain a little more bearable by easing a lot of our inflammation.  Yes – my husband and I still experience a ton of pain but it’s nice to know there are supplements out there along with those we already take that help with the issue instead of masking it like pain medicine does or dulling it.  It truly feels like its combating our pain issues to make our quality of life better.  Overall – if you experience some of these issues – while I’m not doctor, I suggest talking to your Physician to see if this may be something you can add to your daily vitamin intake, maybe it will work for you.  I know my husband and I will continue to have Turmeric – more specifically Nutraviva’s Turmeric Curcumin supplement as a part of our daily supplement regimen.
