Review: Spirulina Powder from Sari Foods #OrganicSpirulina

Dear Readers:
I received an amazing sized bag of this delicious and healthy Sari Foods Spirulina for this review. Shortly after it arrived, I realized I was pregnant and have had terrible morning sickness, so Duncan is now my short term supplement and food tester and taster. He told me that this Spirulina is clean and tasty and super high quality and who am I to argue. I have had Spirulina on my superfood list for along time. It is amazing and full of great stuff.

From the site:

"Spirulina is a 100% Whole Food
Based source of more than 
100 nutrients, including:

Protein: Not only does Spirulina contain more protein content than any other food source, it is biologically complete, containing all of the essential amino acids needed for human health. Did you know that Spirulina is also the most planet friendly source of protein? It yields 20% more than soybeans with 25% of the water usage and is 5 times more energy efficient! We won’t even begin to discuss the comparisons with beef and other animal sources.
Calcium: Yes, more than 26 times the calcium in whole milk!
Essential Amino Acids (Gamma-Linolenic Acid - GLA; Omega 3, 6, 9's): Fish oil? Ha. Where do you think they get their omega content? Blue-green algae like Spirulina, of course. Let me introduce you to the original source of Omega 3, 6 and 9’s. Omegas are essential in preventing heart disease, reducing bad cholesterol & lowering blood pressure. They also play a key role in reducing arthritis, osteoporosis, depression and diabetes.
Iron: With an extremely high concentration of bio-available iron (2300% more than spinach!), this green algae is an excellent during pregnancy and for those with anemia. Also, it will not cause constipation. That’s good news!
Beta-Carotene: Spirulina has 3900% more beta carotene than carrots! The body converts it to Vitamin A, an essential nutrient needed for healthy teeth, bones, mucous membranes, skin and eyes; helping poor vision, cataracts, glaucoma, age spots, acne, eczema, etc. Oh and, twenty years of research proves eating foods rich in beta carotene gives us actual anti-cancer protection.
Chlorophyll: Helps remove toxins from the blood, literally acting as a blood cleanser, suppling the nutrients our bodies need to detox naturally and enabling the removal of toxins. As if it couldn’t get any better, chlorophyll also oxygenates the blood.
Antioxidants: Spirulina provides more antioxidant power than 5 servings of fruits and vegetables and 4x more than blueberries.
Folate (known in the synthetic world as Folic Acid): This food based vitamin is crucial for proper brain function, mental and emotional health and is especially important during high growth periods (such as infancy, adolescence and pregnancy)
Phytonutrients: Comparing phytonutrient levels, Spirulina is 31 times more potent than blueberries and 60 times more potent than spinach!
Prebiotics: These fiber compounds literally act as food for beneficial gut flora like lactobacillus and bifidobacteria, improving your digestion and bowel function by encouraging the colonization of “the good guys" which simultaneously discouraging the growth of pathonogenic bacteria.
Spirulina contains many other nutrients such manganese, zinc, copper, selenium, and chromium and B12...

Sponsored Review: iMaze Fitness Dual HR Strap #imaze

Dear Readers:

As you know, I have recently added running to my workout regime and I love it. It is so freeing to feel the wind blow through my hair as I run on the Walkway over the Hudson or smell the plants and trees along the Rail Trail. There are so many picturesque and beautiful places to run and get close to nature in the beautiful Hudson Valley.  

When I run, I like to keep track of my pace, and how far I run. I am not really training for a race right now , and am currently out of commission with bad allergies and headaches. But when I run, I use my new iMaze Fitness Dual Heartrate Strap and free app that keeps track of my numbers. It was free and easy to download the app, and pretty self explanatory on how to hook the heart rate monitor up. It snaps on and adjusts around my ribcage. I love it. I have taken it out with me many times already and plan on using it for running and races in the spring.summer and onward. Check below for all of the details and links for more important information.

Important Info:

The new Fitness Dual HR strap from iMaze is the ultimate smart sensor for multi-sport training.
When used with the free iMaze Fitness app, it tracks and records your performance on smartphone when running or cycling. Once registered to the iMaze cloud, you can sync and review your workout history and stats from the app, a tablet, or any computer.
In addition, the Dual HR strap also connects to any other digital sport device, allowing you to incorporate existing gear. With the Dual HR strap your Heart rate is broadcast in real-time simultaneously on both Bluetooth(R) 4.0 and ANT+ channels, allowing you to monitor your heart rate on one Ant+ device (sport watch, cycle computer) while recording the data on your phone.
Heart rate training isn’t limited to outdoor activities and neither is the Dual HR strap, by connecting to any ANT+ foot pod* using the Dual HR strap, you can track essential data such as HR, speed and distance, even on a treadmill or during any other indoor sport.
iMaze knows that leading a healthy lifestyle means more than activity tracking so the Dual HR strap is also an accurate and proven health wellness monitor. With a simple 1 minute assessment each morning during rest, the Zenn in-app feature does the rest by calculating your Heart Rate Variability, giving you a Zenn Health index score scaled from 0-100. The higher your Zenn is – the better you are! By monitoring your daily and weekly Zenn score, you can adjust your training load to optimize results.

Review: Forskolin Extract Supplement #naturallane

Dear Readers:

I receive all kinds of diet aids, and supplements to review. I usually read up on the product when it arrives and give it a trial run. In this case, Duncan was the guinea pig as he tested out Forskolin from Natural Lane when it arrived from Amazon. It was easy to digest, and aids in weight loss and metabolism boosting, and he did not notice any side effects. It seemed to work.

What is Forskolin?

Forskolin is found in the roots of the Coleus forskohlii plant, which is a member of the mint family and it grows through out subtropical areas. It has been used in traditional Indian medicine for centuries. Researchers not long ago learned that forskolin can help to promote the breakdown of stored fats in animal and human fat cells and aid losing weight.

Important Info From Natural Lane:

 Forskolin has become pretty popular because of its ability to help people boost their metabolism, but there are many lesser known benefits such as: helping with inflammation, clearing up skin, getting better sleep, among many others. Our forskolin is 250 mg per capsule and each bottle has 60 capsules. This is a 1-2 month supply depending on your dosage.

Review: The Kupp Colorful, Fun Glasses for Kids!

Hello Dear Readers:
  Ana is 4 years old now, and it is well past time to let go of her plastic sippy cups. Even though we still use them for travel and in the carseat, we have switched to big girl cups and glasses at the table and for everyday use. When we recieved these beautiful, colorful Kupp glasses, I knew Ana would be hooked and sure enough, she uses them for everything. Soup, tea, water and juice. She loves them. They are easy to hold, safe, and so well made. Plus the colors are fun and vibrant. Perfect if she has a friend over to keep track of which glass is in use. 

Our New Kupps! 

Important Info:

"The Kupp’ was created by Katesplace founder Kate Oliver as a tool to help her young boys learn accountability and responsibility. She gave each of her children their very own glass in a different color and put them in charge of their cup and all of the responsibilities that came with it, including setting the table, washing, and putting it away. She quickly discovered that she had a cleaner kitchen and her family consumed less plastic. As a result, the Kupp’ was born—a six-ounce glass with
a colorful silicone sleeve designed just for kids.

Important Facts:

  •   The Kupp’ is a six-ounce glass outfitted with a colorful silicone sleeve. It’s designed for kids ages 3-10.

  •   The firm grip and silicon sleeve helps to protect the glass from damage while providing a safe, toxic free vessel to drink from.

  •   The Kupp’ comes in four vibrant colors that represent the environment: blue for water, green for earth, orange for the sun, and red for warmth.

  •  The Kupp’ is the perfect serving size for children, and allows them to become more conscious of waste and consumption.

  •  The Kupp’ is made in the USA using imported glass, and all materials are sourced from environmentally-friendly manufacturers that adhere to EU and US regulations.

  •  All glass is recyclable, certified lead and cadmium free, and is made from a pure soda-lime formula. It is also dishwasher safe!

  • The grip-friendly silicon sleeve is BPA/BPS free and made with medical and food grade silicon to prevent damage. The sleeve does not have to be removed when washing, which makes cleaning your Kupp’ very simple.

  •  The adorable Kupp’ is designed to resemble a smile so kids are naturally attracted to it!

  • The retail price of the Kupp’ is $16.99 each
