Savannah Bee Company Review- The Best Honey Products

I do not know about you, but I just love honey! I even spoon it right out of the jar and into my mouth. I did not always realize the great benefits that honey has. Even its pollen is good for us. Honey’s benefits range from lowering your blood pressure to apitherapy (applying bee stings on areas of your body to help with conditions like rheumatoid arthritis.) But honeys best health benefits go beyond just eating it. You can also make stuff out of the honey or the wax which leads me to a company called Savannah Bee Company. Savannah Bee Company make all types of products out of honey and wax. I will tell you about the wonderful products they offer.

Honey

Organo Review: Best Organo Products

Are you and your family looking for good products that will keep you happy and healthy? Products that are organic and have no artificial junk put into them? Well, let me introduce you to Organo ( Best Organo Products) that have wonderful products that strive to do just that for you and your family. I will give a description of the stuff they offer and you be the judge as to what interests you.

Top 5 Best Organo Products

1. Organo Gold Gourmet Black Ganoderma Coffee


Image result for amazon buy button
Do you like coffee, teas and coffee-like products? If your answer is yes, then let me get down and explain what they have to offer you. Before I explain the different types of coffee drinks, here are a few benefits of drinking coffee.

Drinking coffee can help you burn fat, may lower your risk of Parkinson’s, can drastically improve physical performance, and as it contains essential nutrients, it may lower your risk of getting Type 2 Diabetes. These are just a few of the benefits when you have a cup of coffee. There are more, but I just wanted to wet your interest right now.

Getting back to coffee drinks, let’s start with Organo Gourmet Black Coffee. This drink is a medium dark roast, and has a smooth flavor, which is enhanced with antioxidant rich organic Ganoderma lucidum (used in Chinese tradition for its immune benefits.)

If you want to try a unique tasting coffee, try one called King of Coffee. It is a luscious medium dark arabica roast organic black coffee with the uncommon and delicate spores of the organic Ganoderma mushroom which are loaded full with nutrients and antioxidants.

Not big on drinking coffee straight? How about a coffee blend? There are a few of them to try. One of my favorites is Cafe Mocha with a delicious smooth flavor of chocolate in a cup of tasty coffee. Pour me two glasses please! Just talking about this drink is making me crave it.

Latte anyone? Then try a Cafe Latte made with the finest quality robusta and arabica coffee beans blended with cream and sugar for a creamy coffee latte. This is great anytime you feel you need a pick-me-up or just want something good to drink.

How about a Cafe Supreme made with healthy coffee blended with the added benefits of organic Ganoderma lucidum, Ginseng and Eurycoma Longifolia Jack. These are great ingredients to make your life long and healthy.

If coffee is not your thing, maybe tea or cocoa is of more interest. Organo has 3 choices of drinks to choose from. So try some Organic Green Tea with Ganoderma lucidum for a twofold dose of flavor. Naturally rich in antioxidants, it can be enjoyed hot or cold so have a cup or glass today.

Not into green tea? Well then, try some Red Tea – a tasteful and aromatic tea with ganoderma lucidum and cordyceps. This one too is great hot or cold.

Now if you just do not like tea or coffee, then hot cocoa must be your choice, so mix up some Gourmet Hot Cocoa tasty blend of rich cocoa and ganoderma lucidum used in Chinese tradition for its immune benefits. Your body will thank you.

2. OGX Fenix Shake


Image result for amazon buy button
Organo’s got some great things for you to help in your body management – from drinks to oils. The first is OGX FENIX Rich Chocolate codensed whey protein along with vitamins, minerals, prebiotic fiber and our ganoderma mushroom. It’s a great and nutritious way to lose weight and just feel good.

If you’re not a fan of chocolate, try vanilla or the shake drink called OGX FENIX Creamy Vanilla which has all the same good benefits as chocolate but is vanilla flavored.

How about this one – Grapeseed Oil. What is grapeseed oil good for? It contains Linoleic acid to help maintain good health. Try some yourself and see if it will help you.

Next there is Ganoderma Lucidum which helps to support your immune system, which in turn promotes health and longevity for people.

Although this is a short OGX Fenix shake review, hopefully you can see that it’s a great product and super-healthy for weight loss.

3. Personal Care Needs


Image result for amazon buy button
Everybody has some personal needs. Here are some products that you may find useful. The first is OG Smile toothpaste, which combines the special richness of Ganoderma lucidum with the vigor of mint for healthy teeth and gums.

Then there is Premium G3 Beauty Soap that has a certain method that not only cleanses and moisturizes the skin, but also increases the power of antioxidant-boosting ingredients such as glutathione, Grape Seed Oil, and Organic Ganoderma Lucidum. Why not try some and see what you think.

4. Skin Care


Image result for amazon buy button
Need some products to help you with your skin care? Well, Organo offers a few of them to help you with that.

To begin with there is Manuka CREAM CLEANSER. It helps retain moisture, and protects and rejuvenates. Then it has Aloe Vera to soothes tired dry skin. Then there is Jojoba Oil which protects, hydrates and rejuvenates your skin. Finally, Avocado Oil is a powerful moisturizer leaving skin nourished.

Next in line is Jojoba ANTI AGING SERUM. It has Pure Rose Oil that repairs, hydrates and enhances your skin. Another ingredient is Jojoba Oil which is a powerful and soothing moisturizer. The last ingredient is Argan Oil to leave skin soft and supple. These are some of the main ingredients in this product.

Trying to maintain that youthful look? Try this stuff called Bee Venom ANTI AGING MASK. It helps encourage the production of collagen and elastin in your skin and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The main ingredient – Bee venom – improves elasticity and radiance.

Another ingredient in the mask is Manuka Honey – a natural antioxidant that helps retain the skin’s moisture as it promotes skin regeneration. The next ingredient is Organic Shea butter that smoothes and moisturizes your skin. Finally, Jojoba Oil is added to protect and hydrate your skin.

The final product I’d like to tell you about is Retinol ANTI AGING MOISTURIZER with its pure form of Vitamin A, helping to increase your skin’s own ability to produce collagen that helps smooth and soften skin. Other ingredients are Manuka Honey, Apricot Kernel oil, and Vitamin E.

Sun-Maid Review- Get the Best Dried Fruit

For years, I always enjoyed eating fruit – dried or fresh, but here lately I have been on a dried fruit kick because I have learned that dried fruit is much better for you because of the concentrated nutrients value it has over fresh fruit. An example would be raisins versus grapes. Now the people at Sun-Maid have a whole line up of the best dried fruit to choose from -from raisins to cranberries, so let me give you the fruity low down on them.

Raisins


Image result for amazon buy button
Raisins are good just by themselves. I always snack on them when my sweet tooth starts talking to me. I also have used them in a multitude of recipes. The nutrients values are: fiber 2 g, Potassium 322 mg, Carbohydrates, Antioxidants, Antimicrobial (good mouth health) and vitamin B-6. So keep on eating those raisins. They’re delicious and nutritious!

Mediterranean Apricots


Image result for amazon buy button
Mediterranean apricots also have many uses. They can be used in recipes for dinner as well as breakfast. An example is using them in chicken dishes. You could also make apricot muffins or apricot jams if you like. What do they have in them, you ask? Well, lets see: one apricot has 3g of fiber, 480 mg of Potassium, copper, and vitamins A & C. And as a bonus, apricots are known for protecting people against inflammation. Personally, I just liked the taste of them.

California Pitted Prunes


Image result for amazon buy button
Prunes are another dried fruit that are great in many dishes and desserts. Some dishes that prunes are used in are Indonesian Fried Rice or Roasted Pork Tenderloin. Some desserts are Moist and Fudgy Brownies or how about Dried Plum Snack Bars? Plus, prunes are a good source of fiber. They also have lots of vitamins and minerals. So why not include prunes into your daily diet. You won’t regret it.

Pitted Dates


Image result for amazon buy button
These guys are great in the following drinks and foods: how about a Banana Date Smoothie or maybe an Orange Smoothie? There’s also a recipe for Almond & Date Salad. Would you believe there’s also a dish called Paleo Bacon Date Bites? These are just a few recipes that call for dates. Finally, dates too, are a good source of vitamins and minerals. Some of them are vitamin B6,copper, potassium and manganese, to name a few. Plus dates, like prunes, are loaded with fiber too.

Figs


Image result for amazon buy button
Figs are versatile in appetizers, cakes, cookies and many more dishes. Here are a few recipes that use figs: A couple of the cakes are Raspberry and Fig cake and Fig and Almond cake. If that’s not what you like figs in, how about Chicken and Roasted Fig or maybe Fig, Ham and Ricotta Pizza. This is just to name some recipes that call for figs. Nutrients in figs are vitamin A,K,C, iron, copper, potassium, zinc, magnesium, manganese, and B vitamin (I am going to do a jig the next time I eat a fig because they’re so good for you! Hey, I made a rhyme!)

Organic Dried Mango

Image result for amazon buy button
The health benefits in dried mango is good source of fiber has some minerals and vitamins which you need. Mango are great for many different types of desserts from chewy bar desserts to quick breads, but they can be used chicken and meat recipes that require pork or beef (I thought mango were just great as they are ).

Organic Dried Cranberries


Image result for amazon buy button
Now here’s a fruit I like to munch on any time I am looking for a healthy snack before a meal. You can use dried cranberries in quick breads or salads and even in meats. Dried cranberries are great in sauces too. Of course, there are some health benefits from dried cranberries as well. They can help prevent urinary tract infections, may boost your immune system, help prevent gum disease, may help reduce bad cholesterol and help to improve your digestion because they are a good source of fiber. The vitamins and minerals in them are: Manganese, Copper, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Vitamin K1.(No wonder I love eating them – they are so good for me).

The Fruity End


Image result for amazon buy button
I do not see myself stopping my healthy habit of eating dried fruit any time in the near future (okay, if I am dead I will probably stop then) because they are not only yummy, but are so good for us. Sun-Maid has been producing the best great dried fruit products for over 100 years! From raisins, to prunes, to apricots, to cranberries and I have a feeling they will keep on producing these delicious and healthy dried fruits for the next 100 years too.

Halls Cough Drops Review- The Best for helping and Stopping That Coughing

Hey everybody – do you hate coughing like I do and wish you could find something that makes you stop coughing and start feeling good? How about Halls cough drops? They taste real great and I suck on them just like I would suck on hard candy. That cool menthol always makes my nose and mouth feel so good. Like a breath of fresh air. Let me give you a run down on Halls’ best assortment of cough drops as I pop one into my mouth.

Soothe


Image result for amazon buy button
Halls offers three varieties of cough drops in this category. They are: Soothe & Relieves, which, as the name implies, relieves cough and soothes sore throats. These cough drops contain 2.7 mg of menthol. The second product in the Halls Soothe category is Honey Chamomile. These cough drops have 2.5 mg of menthol. They suppress your cough so you can get a good night’s sleep and they will soothe your sore throat too. Finally, Halls offers a cough drop called Honey Vanilla. This cough drop also soothes sore throats and relieves coughs (this one I put in my mouth because it is so good to suck on – even when I feel alright.) Honey Vanilla has 2.5 mg of menthol.

Defense


Image result for amazon buy button
The Defense category has four varieties of cough drops. Assorted Citrus is a great source of antioxidant/vitamin C. Sugar Free Assorted Citrus, is the obvious pick for those who need to watch their sugar intake. Pink Grapefruit is another choice, which contains 225 percent of the daily recommended vitamin C and helps the immune system too. And finally, there’s Watermelon with 177 percent of recommended daily vitamin C (I will be happy to pop that one in my mouth. I love watermelon!)

Relief

Who does not want relief from a cough, sore throat or stuffed up nose? Well, Halls has seventeen different flavors to choose from! I will tell you about just a few of them, since you probably don’t want to spend your entire day reading this! Intense Cool has 15 mg of menthol for a sore throat and/or a cough. Strawberry flavor (yum!) has 2.7 mg of menthol and Cherry Flavor: Soothing Syrup Center (doesn’t the very name of it make you almost feel better?) with 7.6 mg of menthol for help with sore throat, nasal congestion and coughing.

Another one that is my personal favorite is Peppermint flavor. Check them all out!

Breezers

Choose which one you have a craving for (I go with Creamy Strawberry – yummy.)

Kids

Halls has a sneaky way to get children to take cough medicine without them knowing they are getting it. After all, what child would pass up a sucker! And that’s the form that Halls offers for children. They are called Throat Pops. Even the name sounds fun, don’t you think? Throat Pops come in three flavors: Strawberry, Orange and Cherry. Strawberry and Cherry have 5 mg of menthol and Orange has vitamin C, so the next time junior has a cough and does not want cough drops try these! He or she will think they are getting a treat, but will really be getting medicine. Pretty clever, eh?

The Final Cough


Unfortunately, coughing is a part of life. As my sister-in-law would say, “get over it,” so the next time you get a cold or have a coughing session, “get over it” with Halls best cough drops. They certainly have a great assortment to choose from. Something for every taste bud!

One more type of cashew that Planters makes is honey roasted, for those of us that have a sweet tooth.
