Deborah’s Reviews

Milk Thistle - Your liver will thank you!

Your liver is the ultimate multitasker. It aids in digestion, helping to break down fat, absorb some vitamins and minerals, and stores glycogen (an energy source) and vitamins to be used by the body later. It cleans toxins from the blood, has a role in regulating glucose, blood pressure, insulin,...

Proven Stress Reducer!

Stress.  Work, schedules, deadlines, traffic, family stresses, worries, etc....   Like many of us, I have A LOT going on most of the time.  I am definitely getting better at prioritizing exercise, nutrition, meditation, a little reading - me time.  But when my never ending to do list doesn't mesh with...

Relaxation and focus all at once!

It's no wonder so many of us have a hard time relaxing.  Dealing with daily traffic, work pressures, schedules, family issues...heck, even the news reports (my hubs is obsessed), can keep our nervous systems in a constant Sympathetic State.  Once upon a time, that was just our Fight or Flight...

Natural Memory Support

Aah yes. as much as I’d like to think I’m aging like a fine wine, I’m definitely noticing some changes. What did I come in here for? Why did I just pick up my phone? And (for me) the constant where are my glasses? At any age, it's so important...

Vitamin D3 + K2 So much more effective than solo D3!

Vitamin D is involved in calcium and phosphorus absorption.  It helps to facilitate normal immune and neuromuscular system function.  Vitamin D is also necessary for the production of serotonin, a hormone that makes us happy.  Our bodies require calcium to build and maintain bones. Vitamin D helps move calcium from...

Liquid Iron - Easy to take and Easy on your tummy!

Whenever I've donated blood, I'd be couch-bound with crippling fatigue and seemed to be ravenously hungry for days.  It was quite a mystery as my hemoglobin levels were always very healthy, so I was never considered low in iron (anemic).  I stopped trying to donate blood but still struggled with...

I actually woke up rested and refreshed!

I have a busy life!  Busy with more than the occasional side of stress. I try to stop working (at whatever) a couple of hours before bedtime.  I know I need that time to chill and let go of the day if I have any hope of sleeping.  Even when...

Wow these are tasty gummies!

We know the best way to support our immune systems is to get enough sleep, eat healthy foods, especially plants, limit sugar, stay hydrated, exercise, and manage stress.  Many of us strive to do that, but there are days, weeks...sometimes longer, when we just miss the mark.  And, with cold...

So good for your skin and for the planet!

I have been making an effort over the last several years, to make the switch to all natural skin care products.  As a Registered Massage Therapist, I'm on my feet ALL day.  So, when looking at the Upfront Cosmetics line, I chose a refreshing peppermint lotion bar. Upfront Cosmetics uses...

Zero waste laundry detergent that really works!

Wow! This was the perfect time for me to truly TEST a laundry detergent. We’re building an apartment in our home so, the hubby’s clothes are literally covered in drywall dust.  There are so many great things about this product, so I was really hoping the clothes would come out...

Rhodiola: Natural Stamina and Stress Relief

Like many of us, I have A LOT going on, most of the time.  There are many days when the never-ending ‘to do’ list (both in action and the ongoing one in my head) gets a bit overwhelming. That leaves me feeling exhausted and makes it difficult to focus on...

A One Stop Shop Supplement for the Whole Family!

My son came up for the weekend and was complaining about having to source and buy separate supplement formulations for himself, his partner, and my grandson.

The Ideal Easy Fiber Source!

Let’s be honest, a super busy lifestyle, stress, not always getting enough exercise and sleep, and eating on the go, can lead to irregularity. Tough to live your best life when you’re uncomfortable. The answer?  Well, improving on all the above.  But, also fiber.  Fiber is so important, but most...

A Protein Powder with All The Things 🙌🏻

I like to stock a variety of ‘superfoods’ and adaptogens in my pantry. I add them to my smoothies and boost my baked goods with them. But if I’m being honest, not only do ‘all the things’ take up a bunch of space in my pantry, they are pricey and...

A Coconutty Alternative to Icing Sugar

I love baking with coconut and have always preferred using just the right amount of coconut milk powder mixed with water over a can of coconut milk in recipes.  But, never before have I considered coconut milk powder as a substitute for icing sugar. Coco Natura Organic Coconut Milk Powder...

All the Benefits of Beets, without the mess!

To be honest, I’ve never loved beets, outside of my Mom’s Borscht (which was served once a year, on Ukrainian Christmas Eve). In recent years though, I’ve hidden (mostly from my husband lol) roasted, puréed beets in chocolate cake, raspberry muffins, and even in waffles. They always add a moisture...
