Tooth Fairy Approved

February 16, 2018

Oral health is key for overall health.  Did you know that having poor oral hygiene practices can negatively affect your cardiac, digestive, lymphatic, and bone health?  A major risk factor in the decline of oral health is consuming sugary and acidic foods that don't get brushed away in time before plaque and tartar build up.  Eating sugary foods also decreases immune function and increases likelihood of periodontal disease.  Switching out refined white sugar for natural sugar alternatives is easy as pie, Monk fruit sweetener, erythrithol, stevia, are fantastic sugar alternatives. Coconut sugar, yacon syrup, and agave necter tastes like brown sugar but without the calories, spike in your glycemic level or tooth decay. With so many options now available for cooking and baking.  Adding nutrients such as protein, Gymnema sylvestre, cinnamon bark and curcumin all of which have a reputation for curbing sugar cravings, help balance blood glucose to keep your sweet tooth in check will stop the crazy cycle of over sugar consumption and poor oral health.  Cinnamon bark also has been known to brighten your smile and protect your gums from inflammation.  Our Tooth Fairy Approved recommendation will give your pantry and your medicine cabinet all the essentials to help kick your sugar addiction and bump up your oral health.

Bye, bye Winter Hair Care

Ah spring time is on the horizon. Why not give your mane a spring detox and make over? Dry and cold winds can deplete your hair and scalp of moisture. Overtime your locks can become dry and brittle. Try this easy and pampering recommendation to protect your mane to look lustrous and feel silky smooth again. Apply True Moringa - All Purpose Moringa Body Oil with Peppermint, to your hair and scalp, leave in hair for 30 minutes or wrap your hair in a towel and leave in overnight. Moringa oil does not clog scalp pores, strengthens hair follicles and combats frizz. Keep it in your hair overnight into the next day (really it's not greasy at all?). Wash it out with a mild, sulphate free shampoo, like the very juicy ACURE Mega Moisture Shampoo and reveal an uber moisturized hair and scalp. Next give your scalp the sustained moisture lock it deserves. We love the organic hair mask for its triple threat recovery from the dry blustery cold air that shocked our scalp and hair during the winter months. Apply one to two times a week the John Masters Organics Hair Milk, Rose and Apricot.  The premium ingredients like...

Brush off Winter "Pomenantly"

Feeling like you need a kick in the pants to get yourself out of the stuper of winter?  Well we’ve got a fantastic Brush off Winter “Pomenantly” recommendation, to leave those feelings of hibernation and S.A.D in the dust and wake up to the freshness and rebirth of Spring time. Pomegranates are indeed a fruit of the winter months but no need to leave these gems of a fruit to last season.  Getting back to the swing of fitness as we get more daylight?  Drink Pom Wonderful (pomegranate juice).  Pre and Post workout pomegranate juice makes for a fantastic workout drink, 1-2 oz before or after a workout and or 1-2 oz in your water bottle for an intra workout. Pomegranates contain nitrates, which is converted to nitrite and can then help support blood flow, helping the body bring more oxygen to  your muscle tissue, improving your work out  and recovery. Not quite hitting the gym because you still feel stuck in hibernation mode?  We can all relate.  The lack of daylight turns our melatonin production to super high mode which makes us feel extra sleepy.  As we get more daylight this feeling of lethargy and even S.A.D (seasonal affective...

Phenomenal Phyto-Estrogen Superfoods

Our diets today, unfortunately have many hidden and not so hidden sources of high estrogen foods and environmental estrogens.  If Estrogen is a natural hormone that our body naturally produces why would high estrogen foods be a bad thing?  The thing is the overload of the estrogens from foods and environmental factors also known as Xenoestrogens — synthetic or natural substances that mimic estrogen — are all around. The end result is a condition known as estrogen dominance. Estrogen dominance has been studied to contribute to low progesterone levels, poor thyroid function, weight imbalances, fibroids, cysts, dysplasia and tumors.  You can balance out high levels of estrogen by incorporating the Phenomenal Phyto-Estrogen Superfoods health hack to your wellness routine.  Phyto Estrogen superfoods will give your body the right type of estrogen which will then help the body produce adequate Progesterone levels and decrease symptoms of estrogen dominance.  Taking maca may help to increase progesterone levels by balancing the estrogen to progesterone ratio.  Maca is a simple root cruciferous with very broad spectrum hormone balancing and antioxidant effects on the body. Warming up a cup of non-dairy milk add a heaping teaspoon of powdered (and if possible gelatinized) Maca makes for...
