Garden of Life Dr. Formulated Probiotics GIVEAWAY!

Garden of Life Dr. Formulated Probiotics GIVEAWAY!

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you’ve likely noticed that I sing the praises of this brand as much as I breathe. Okay, okay……not that much. But, I am a believer in what this brand does. I use their products daily and have been a lucky beneficiary of the health benefits they provide.

I was lucky enough to tour & hang out in their headquarters earlier this year in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida and was blown away by the people, the passionate minds behind these products, and their commitment to quality.

Garden of Life teamed up with renowned Dr. David Perlmutter to create this line of products health that hone in on the mothership of all absorption: your digestive system. These probiotic supplements are unparalleled in the world of probies. They even ship them cold so that they retain their longevity.

Blah, blah, blah, right? Maybe some of you just want to hear the answer to: “Why do I need to take these and what are they going to do for my body?”

The short answer:

Probiotics will help you become healthier, get leaner, have clearer skin, sustain more energy and absorb more of the good food you’re eating. Better absorption means more health. I’ve lived it.

The longer answer: (I’ll offer this up because it left a lasting impression on me (something I learned from one of many lectures at the Garden of Life headquarters):

“Probiotics” is not JUST a buzz word. Your body NEEDS them to function optimally.

-The standard American diet, pharmaceutical drugs, etc. have diminished our bodies’ good bacteria population in the gut. The effect on human health is profound.

-Supplementing the diet with probiotics is key is returning this good bacteria population back to a point where the digestive system can assimilate, absorb and process nutrients as it’s supposed to.

-“At Garden of Life, we are greens, we are probiotics. It’s who are are.” -Sherri Gunn, Garden of Life.

-“So much more can be done with health & prevention.” -Dawn Jarvis, Garden of Life.

-There are trillions of microbial organisms in your body. You help the good microbes thrive by eating a rich, whole food based diet that limits processed foods.

-A natural, whole food diet without pesticides, GMOs helps heal the gut.

-Good bacteria in the gut helps protect against the bad bacteria. So, we need the good bacteria.

-Digestive health is responsible for absorption of all of the food we eat, which contributes to our overall vitality. That’s why gut health is such a focus.

If you made it this far reading this post, I am here giving you a virtual hug. Thank you. I know it’s a lot.

But, I say all of this to say: probiotics can REALLY help you in myriad of ways. I am a huge proponent of them. I use them and I feel a difference when I do.

Holiday Immunity Boost GIVEAWAY with Amazing Grass!

Amazing Grass Immunity Boosters: GIVEAWAY!

During this time of year, isn’t it funny how even the healthiest of us may get the sniffles or feel a little under the weather at times? It’s frustrating to get sick. Luckily, there’s a whole lot in your hands as far as what you can do to prepare.

Enter: Amazing Grass.

This wonderful, quality-focused brand has been on my radar & blogging atmosphere for several years now–& for good reason. They produce organic, raw, nutrient-packed green superfoods that are pure, nourishing and very convenient to add to a shaker bottle or blend into a smoothie (just a few of the uses!).

The coolest thing about using these products to help boost that holiday (well, all-year round, really!) immunity is that they are so practical for everyday use. Just one serving a day can give you a sufficient boost to keep your nutrient intake high to fend off sickness & to avoid that winter fog that can come over too many instances of indulgence.

Most of these products are available to purchase in so many local health food stores and can also be found online. They make it really easy for you to reap the benefits.

__________________________

Here’s a little run down on two of their biggest immunity-targeting blends:

Green SuperFood Tangerine Immunity Defense – consists of six potent ingredients, each individually known for having immunity support benefits, including Organic Proprietary Mushroom Blend, Organic Olive Leaf, Organic Elderberry, Organic Ginger Root, Organic Astragalus and Andrographis.

  • The Vitamin C comes from ascorbic acid and Acerola Cherry Extract. 1000mg of Vitamin C is the same amount found in one serving of Emergen-C. The Vitamin C level in Immunity Tangerine is also equivalent to the amount in approximately 40 whole tangerines.

Green SuperFood Alkalize & Detox – specifically designed to simultaneously help the body achieve ideal pH levels while ridding it of toxins to allow for optimal function and organ restoration.

  • Containing over 20 different alkalizing and detoxifying agents including beet root, parsley, turmeric and apple pectin, each ingredient in Alkalize & Detox is specifically formulated to alkalize by bringing the body to a more natural pH balance, while simultaneously detoxing by cleansing tissues of toxins and pollutants.

Looking for that supplement that can give you that extra pep in your step? Check out Amazing Grass. Here’s how you can find them:

Ingredients
*CO=CERTIFIED ORGANIC *CO Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, *CO Chamomilla Recutita Flower Extract, *CO Beeswax, *CO Lecithin, *CO Carnauba Wax, *CO Coconut Acid, *CO Shea Butter, *CO Palm Butter, *CO Cocoa Seed Butter, *CO Soybean Oil, *CO Grape Seed Oil, *CO Jojoba Seed Oil, *CO Glycerin, *CO Lavender Oil, *CO Safflower Seed Oil, *CO Citrus Aurantium, *CO Olive Fruit Oil, *CO Guar Gum, *CO Sunflower Seed Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, *CO Alcohol, *CO Willow Bark Extract, *CO Oat Kernel Extract, *CO Witch Hazel Bark/Leaf/Twig Extract, *CO Pogostemon Cablin Oil, *CO Tea Tree Leaf Oil, *CO Wintergreen Leaf Oil, *CO Olive Fruit Extract, Citric Acid.

Tips for use:

  • Always ensure you cleanse your face thoroughly before using Organity Moisturizer – if you apply moisturizer without cleansing, it will not absorb properly and just sit on the surface
  • Exfoliate about 3 times per week – as we age, we don’t shed skin as effectively and the buildup of dead skin cells can lead to a dull, lackluster appearance. Exfoliating not only removes dead skin, it also helps your Organity Moisturizer to absorb much better and gives it a chance to be far more effective
  • Always remove makeup and moisturize before going to bed – if makeup is left on overnight, it not only clogs your pores, but also causes unnecessary exposure to oxidative stress and free radicals, all of which leads to premature aging and fine lines. Take an extra few minutes to clean your face and apply Organity Moisturizer – you’ll definitely feel the difference in the morning!”

My Thoughts:

This rich concoction is dense! No more watery facial creams that feel like they only temporarily quench the skin. Every ingredient is intensely moisturizing–and you can feel that as soon as you apply it. Only a small amount was needed to completely cover and moisturize my entire face & neck.

I love that there are no-nonsense ingredients (of course!) and I love that it acts as a pre-makeup skin primer: it serves as both a barrier to the environment and a quenching layer for the makeup to be applied to. I’m very happy with the quality of this Organity moisturizer, its staying power and how it leaves my skin feeling: moisturized, dewy, glowing and healthy!
