Yummy fish oil … not an oxymoron!

I love, Love, LOVE coromega’s orange gel paks [taste like an old fashioned orange dreamsicle] providing high quality Omega 3s and my favorite one also adds Vitamin D3 … adds a pineapple twist.  Yummy!  Everyone knows that Omega 3 and Vitamin D3 deficiencies are taking their toll on our health.  My VeMMA premium liquid nutritional supplement is my plant-based ionic daily so all I add is my daily coromega to cover my oil-based nutrient needs. That’s how we roll in Little Mama’s house!

Humidity can be an all-year need

It took me years to realize that every time we turned on the furnace in the fall, I got a migraine headache the following morning.  I have a sensitivity to dry air and chemicals.  Then one year we didn’t put the humidifier in our bedroom away, we left it running and son-of-a-gun if that puppy didn’t keep pumping out vapor.  Now you do have to be vigilant to keep your filters replaced and we also put a cap full of chlorox in the tank every time we refill [learned that the hard way that mold can build up on the filter and that really causes congestion and mystery].  So here is my favorite bedroom humidifier [and you may need more for children’s bedrooms] :

Enjoy feeling better!

Omega 3s

Omega 3s are really important … even if you take our Vemma premium supplements.  Why?  Because our premium supplements are plant and water based therefore do not build up toxic levels of anything.  Yet there are some nutrients that the body must have daily including healthy oils to absorb the oil based vitamins and nutrients.

When most hear of fish oil [Omega 3s], they wrinkle their nose and can only think of those ‘fishy’ burps.  Not any more!  Coromega is a delicious, high quality fish oil that is an orange creamy gel — even the kids will take it!  It’s really good and covers your daily needs.  You can get it in several different flavors plus they have coromega plus CoQ10 in the same orange gel paks.  My hubby takes these daily because he’s on statins so I insist that he take CoQ10 as we all have seen the research that statins deplete the body of much needed CoQ10.

The ‘Really Good’ Oil — Coconut Oil

It seems that I continually get into arguments with the AMA and ADA about their recommended cook with canola oil … grrrrrrrr. I won’t get on my rant-box here but in two shakes online you can easily find that canola oil [aka rapeseed oil] is highly toxic to your body when heated. There are also reports that 90% of the canola oil in the U.S. is GMO so that nails it shut for me right there.

My friends rely on me to do the research [and the math ] as to what is the best oil to use for everything including heat so here is what I recommend : cold-pressed, 100% organic coconut oil [my preference is that coming from the Phillipines]. The two brands that I recommend are : 1]]
2] Carrington Farms that I usually find the best price at Costco; or if you don’t have a membership or Costco near you then amazon also carries it :

Shar’s Stevia

I am asked about stevia at least once a week as more people decide that artificial sweeteners [aspartame, nutrasweet, equal, splenda, sucralose, high fructose corn syrup, truvia …] may be harming their family.

I’ve tried several brands of stevia plus checked prices at local grocery stores and health food stores to find one brand that doesn’t leave an after taste or offend my taste buds and the price is most economical. So here it is … Enjoy!
and thank you for joining a healthy, be-good-to-your-body journey.

Have you had enough magnesium today?

You all know that I love our Vemma premium liquid nutrition, and it does wonders for my mature bod; yet there are times when I just don’t get enough magnesium — like when I try to move the coffee table with my toes or land a wicked one-pointer on my bum knee.  Soft tissue injuries are some of the longest to heal  so I’m told to add extra magnesium to speed up the healing!

There are all kinds of magnesium available and I haven’t researched many — my chiropractor recommended this one and when worked for me and earned my seal of approval, I stopped lookin’!

I love the Organic Orange flavor by Natural Calm [Other flavors are plain, lemon, raspberry lemon, cherry]. Make myself a hot toddy most evenings [add just a little hot water at a time because this stuff fizzes like Mt Vesuvius!].
