Test Assured Water Test Review!

No comments:
Hi everyone, so I am not sure if you all are aware of this but I currently live in Southern California. I'm originally from NJ, and I loved the drinking water there. I lived near NYC which is one of the top 10 cities in America with the best drinking water (according to this article). So when I first moved here, I didn't experience any real culture shock but I was definitely very shocked and disappointed with the drinking water. You have to use a filter to drink the water pretty much and it sucks. That's why I was very excited to try out Test Assured's Water Testing Kits.

This test kit is very cool because it gives you a variety of tests to try out with your water. I did a few cool tests with this kit and happy to announce that my filtered water is fine! I did not test the unfiltered water though. 

I did their Pesticides and Lead test, it had really easy to follow steps. From what I remember, you dip the sticks into a certain amount of water and if one of the lines is more solid than the other than you do not have pesticides or lead. Not sure if you can see the lines labeled 1 and 2 on the stick but suffice it to say is that I had pesticide and lead free drinking water.

I also took their bacteria test to see if my water had any bacteria. That is where you mix some water in a capsule with a certain chemical and let it sit for about 48 hours. If the water is purple then you are bacteria free. Guess what? We were!

There are a variety of other tests in this kit -- ten to be exact. You can test the iron, copper, chlorine, alkalinity, etc all too. The final test I took with the water was the alkalinity/pH/hardness test. (The sticks pictured to the right of the purple vial). You dip them in water and then match the colors to the sheet they give you.

Each square follows a certain test which is why they're different colors. It was a little hard trying to match them up with a specific color because I ddi feel like they might've been in between colors. It did prove I did have little alkalinity and the water was still okay!

Overall, aside from this test I definitely recommend those Brita water filter pictures as I have been using that forever and after a while you wonder if it works -- well these tests are proof that they do! I really enjoyed taking these tests because it made me feel safe. I feel a lot better about my water, especially because I drink it all the time. Definitely check it out, you won't be disappointed!

Evergreenlife's Olife Review!

No comments:
Hi everyone, I know we are all trying to take steps to lead a happier and healthier life right? It can be very difficult, especially with temptations like donuts and all that awesome dessert food and Hulu's endless content so you can just chow down on the couch. But there are ways you can still do those things and maybe feel a little bit better about yourself. That is where Evergreenlife's Olife comes in!

Olife is a powerful anti-oxidant, helps with circulation, energy, skin, joints, menstrual cramps, and lots more. 

It's really easy to use, all you do is drink 1/4 cup right in the morning to start your day. Forewarning, it does not taste the best. It reminded me of tea but like way more harsh, if that makes sense. But also it is only 1/4 cup and it is pretty easy to digest.

Olife is a herbal olive leaf water extract supplement. It is rich in Oleuropein, Elenolic Acid, Rutin, Tyrosol and the efficient antioxidant Hydroxytirosol. 

It also has a variety of excellent benefits including:
- helps maintain blood pressure levels 
- helps maintain blood glucose levels
- helps maintain healthy blood circulation
- may improve metabolism of lipids and carbohydrates
- helps maintain cholesterol levels
- energizes you

I tried this out for a week. I do have trouble not being sleepy all the time as I do work an 8-5 job and I am pretty much out until 2am doing comedy every night. So I was mostly excited to try it out to see if it would energize me. I did notice some changes. I usually take naps during the day but didn't need to. I felt more positive and happy instead of sluggish.

I cannot check my vitals to see if my blood pressure and everything is still the same but I imagine it is. It also helps with your period cramps which I am kind of excited to check out once it's that time of the month again, haha, as I do get some annoying cramps.

Overall, I really enjoyed this. The taste isn't the best, but I feel it is pretty important to take supplements to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and this is a pretty easy one and has a lot of key benefits. Definitely check it out, you won't be disappointed!

Clover Organics Review!

No comments:

Hey everyone, with so many pesticides and GMO's being used and added to our food it's important to think before you purchase anything. Sometimes organics, although maybe a little more expensive, is the way, way better option. That's why you should check out Clover Organic Farms. They have a wide range of dairy products for you to check out. I received this opportunity thanks to Social Nature.

I received some Clover cash to purchase a Clover product and I chose their 1% Low Fat Milk with Vitamin A & D.

I actually haven't had regular milk in a while, which I guess is a weird thing to say. I usually buy coconut or almond milk from Costco in bulk because they last longer, that's why. I do love regular milk though. 

Some key benefits of this milk are:
- Organic 
- rBST and antibiotic-free 
- Fresh pasteurized to ensure the quality 
- Gluten free 
- Low fat 
- Excellent source of calcium 
- Good for reduced calorie diets

It has 25% of the daily value of Vitamin D, 10% for Vitamin A, and 35% for calcium.

Honestly, it tastes just like any old milk to me which I love. It has low fat but doesn't taste too watery or like it is missing anything. That's why I can't do skim milk, really. This milk is delicious and quenches your thirst when you're craving some and it also goes great in all cereal -- that's what I use it for a lot.

Overall, I really enjoyed this milk, it tastes great and is good for you. Definitely check it out, you won't be disappointed!

Chewy.com September Review!

No comments:

Hey everyone, new month new treats! Chewy.com is a website dedicated to to pet treats and supplies with such a variety to choose from you can get lost in the hundred of brands, seriously, but you'll definitely find something great!  

I received two types of treats:
- Halo Healthsome Well-Being Chicken and Cheese Flavor
- Greenies Feline Oven Roasted Chicken Flavor Dental Cat Treats

Halo Healthsome Well-Being Chicken and Cheese Flavor Grain-Free Dog Treats are crunchy bites loaded with antioxidants, protein and fiber. They're made with real chicken and real cheese, nonfat yougurt, and plenty of fruits and veggies.

Some key benefits include:
- Flaxseed keeps the coat luxurious and soft
- Crunchy texture cleans teeth and gums
- Grain-free treat suitable for dogs with food-sensitivities
- Parsley freshens breath

I actually gave both treats to my cousin when she came to visit because she has a dog named Presley (pictured above) and a cat named Jerry (pictured below). She gave them to her pets right when she got home and she said they loved them. Presley loved the Healthsome treats they she actually even ate them out of her hand.

I had never known that they had Feline Greenies, I used to give my old dog Greenies all the time and she loved them so I was super excited to see these Feline Greenies. 

Greenies Feline Dental Treats offer complete nutrition and help your cat maintain good dental care. They have a unique shape and crunchy texture that's proven to reduce tartar. 

Some key benefits include:
- They're the #1 vet-recommended dental chew
- Delicious chicken flavor cats love
- Helps clean your cat's teeth by wiping away tartar buildup
- Natural formula with added vitamins, minerals, taurine and chlorophyll
- Each treat is only 1.25 calories
- Contains no artificial flavors or preservatives
- Made in the USA

Greenies are great, too the cat ones are smaller than the dog ones, way smaller. So they don't like chew on one, you can give them a few like Jerry eating a few above.

Overall, these treats were great and Chewy once again did not disappoint. Presley and Jerry loved the treats! Definitely check them out, you won't be disappointed!
