Deborah’s Reviews

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...

Stress Release, Immune Support, and more!

In a perfect world, we would all be able to manage stress on the daily. Eat healthy foods, exercise, have time for hobbies, have a satisfying social life, have time to slow down, and get a great sleep every night. Sounds great, but we know life doesn't always work out...

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...

Memory and mood support from flowers!

I’ve used Bacopa flowers in my gardens for years, but I had no idea they were medicinal.  Bacopa has actually been a staple in Ayurvedic medicine and has been used in herbal medicine for centuries.  HAVN Life Bacopa Brain uses the powerful Bacopa plant extract clinically proven to support cognitive...

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...

Great ingredients, but not great for me.

Power On is packed with powerful ingredients! Ginseng has tremendous benefits.  It's antioxidant, anti inflammatory, supports the immune system, may fight physical and mental fatigue, and may increase energy levels. The Panax Ginseng in Power On is an East Asian variety.  Both Canadian and Asian Ginseng contain ginsenosides which can...

Nutty but Safe😋

Do you miss nuts?  Do you or a loved one need to be nut free?  I live with someone who developed an allergy to some nuts, later in life and really misses them. So, we were Uber excited when we tasted Organic Tigernut Bits from Ecoideas!  My nut free housemate...

Anti-Aging Energy!

Do you feel like you’re slowing down as you get older? Are you noticing that you maybe don’t remember things as readily? Or maybe it’s that slower rise when you’ve been sitting a while. Well, that’s because our NAD levels decline as we age.  NAD or nicotinemide adenine dinucleotide is...

New Developments in Healthy Aging!

This is a truly exciting development in anti-aging!  As a Registered Massage Therapist, I regularly hear patients talk about their aches, pains, and ailments, assuming they have to accept them as a normal part of aging. But, that is simply not true. There are many things we can do to...
