Immortal Energy Review


I received a sample of 'Immortal Energy' to try out in order to give an honest review.

The samples I received were in pill form.  I took two or three when I just didn't seem to have a lot of energy and needed to get through the afternoon at work.  I seemed to be more focused without the jittery after effects of an energy drink or a cup of coffee.

 There are no hard drugs in the Immortal Energy tablets.  They are 100% all natural and give an immediate release from the herbs.

Ingredients according to their website........

DEER ANTLER (LU RONG)
Deer antler is widely used in Asia, and now throughout the world, to strengthen adrenal, reproductive and brain functions. It is mainly used as a rejuvenating agent. Short term use is believed to quickly build strength and power, while consistent long-term use is believed to re-build deep life force, preserve youthfulness and to enhance longevity.

ASTRAGALUS (HUANG QI)
For centuries people have used astragalus root to enhance strength and regulate metabolism. The herb has only recently gained popularity among herbalists and practitioners of alternative medicine in the West. Chinese medicine uses astragalus root to enhance the body’s energy, known as “qi”. Astragalus root is a mild diuretic, and it can help to reduce perspiration as well. In traditional Chinese Medicine, all of these uses are attributed to the ability of astragalus root to replenish “qi”, so a person who is ill can regain strength and immunity. Astragalus root is also been shown to protect the adrenal cortex, the gland that produces hormones related to stress. It may also help allergy sufferers by strengthening the immune system’s response to allergens in the environment.

GINSENG (REN SHEN)
Ginseng is used for improving thinking, concentration, memory, work efficiency, physical stamina, and athletic endurance which have a significant impact on our energy levels.
GOJI (GOU QI ZI)
The nutritional and medicinal benefits of goji berries are legendary. Goji berries are very high in antioxidants and have great anti-inflammatory properties.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine goji is used as a blood and immune system tonic. It supports vision, is a mood elevator, and is known as “the happy fruit.” One of the most famous herbs in Asia to promote beautiful skin. It can improve memory, and increase libido.

SCHIZANDRA (WU WEI ZI)
Schizandra is known as the five-flavor fruit; it has each of the five flavors (sweet, spicy, sour, salty, and acidic).  It’s one of the most famous herbs used in Chinese medicine. This herb is considered to be one of the premium mind tonics of herbalism. It is used to sharpen concentration, improve memory, and increase alertness. Yet, unlike caffeine-like stimulants, schizandra does not produce nervousness when increasing energy. In fact, some people consider schizandra mildly “calming” while producing wakefulness and improved focus.

Loved the extra boost of energy and will surely use Immortal Energy again.

nuNAAT Real Me: Curl-to-Coil Collection Review

In exchange for an honest review, I received the nuNAAT Real Me: Curl-to-Coil Collection of hair products.  I have fought curly, gnarly thick hair all of my life.  I am constantly searching for products to tame the wild beast.  I was thrilled when I was chosen to do this review.  



 Above is pictured the collection I received, which included Lather up and hydrate shampoo, Real moisture conditioner, Pick me up sheen, Blast of shine hair mask, Natural curl activator and Perfect do pomade.



The shampoo and conditioner left my hair manageable without all the frizz.  As soon as I rinsed my hair, you could feel the difference.  It was like a hydrating wash and condition.  






After shampooing and conditioning and towel drying my hair, I would mix the curl activator with the pick me up sheen and put it in my hair as a leave-in conditioner.  It gave my curls lots of bounce and definition with a little bit of shine!  My goodness, I'm getting control of this out-of-control hair! I'm a happy girl!

                                                  

About once a week, I used the Blast of Shine hair mask.  I put it on after my shampoo and conditioner and left it for about 5 minutes.  It was like a deep conditioner and gave me that extra repair from the blow dryer and the combing. Loved this product.





The pomade I used as a stay-in-place for extra definition.  It holds the hair in place and gives it some control as you are styling.  

I am hooked on these products and doubt I will ever use anything else.  Be sure to visit their website at http://www.nunaat.com/.  They have many different hair products for all different kinds of hair.  They also have a facebook page https://www.facebook.com/nunaat.

I highly recommend the nuNAAT Real Me: Curl-to-Coil Collection for those of us who need to control that curl that we have been blessed with.

Ozeri Precision Digital Bath Scale (400 lb Edition) with Widescreen LCD and Step-on Activation Review



I was given a Ozeri Precision Digital Bath Scale (400 lb Edition) with Widescreen LCD and Step-on Activation, in White in exchange for an honest review.



I love the thin shape and light weight of the Ozeri Precision Digital Bath Scale.















One of the most amazing features is the auto calibration.  You never have to worry about whether your scales will match those at the doctor's office.  No surprises when you go to get a checkup!

The scale will weigh up to 400 pounds and features a step-on activation and huge numbers so even those of us who have 'aging' eyes can see!

See how thin and stylish the Ozeri Precision Bath Scale is!  You can purchase your very own scale on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CWM1QIY.  It's a very stylish addition to your home and will serve the purpose of keeping an eye on those unwanted pounds.

I also love the fact that I don't have to tap it and wait to get my weight.  I just step on and have an accurate weight in seconds.  You won't be disappointed with this purchase.
