Give Your Body a Nano Glutathione Boost

In addition to eating a healthy diet, taking vitamins can help ensure you’re getting the nutrients you need. As much as I try, I sometimes skip taking my vitamins because I hate swallowing such huge pills. Recently, that all changed when I was asked to try Nanoceutical Solutions Nano Glutathione, as well as their Nano Methyl B12 and Nano Vitamin D3. Unlike traditional vitamins, these come in liquid form for easier swallowing.

What also makes Nanoceutical products so unique, besides being made in the US, is their proprietary manufacturing process. This process keeps the molecules of the vitamins and supplements intact so your body can easily absorb them.

In addition, this inventive technology also creates formulas that are “nano” in size. The smaller the particle, the more effective the vitamin. In other words, when you place the formula under your tongue, it can easily travel through your mucus membranes and into your bloodstream. This means your body is better able to absorb the vital nutrients while also receiving the most health benefit.

Nano Glutathione

So, now that you know a little bit about how the delivery system of these vitamins, let’s talk about my experience with Nano Glutathione, as well as with the other supplements. Since I had never taken Glutathione before, I was curious to learn more about its benefits and why it is called the “master antioxidant”.

Glutathione is essential for every cell of our bodies. This antioxidant is naturally produced in the liver and helps your body rid itself of toxins and fight off cell-damaging free radicals. It also plays a role in metabolism, immune response, and general health. Some research has shown that a lack of Glutathione in the body may lead to an increase in brain diseases, some cancers, autoimmune disease, infertility, problems with vision, pain, cardiovascular disease, and more. (You can find more details on the Nano Glutathione product page, linked above.)

After reading up on Glutathione, I decided it was time to put it to the test. And what better time than over the Thanksgiving holiday, especially when I would be traveling and spending time with my nieces and nephew. As much as I love the little munchkins, as I call them, they not only wear me out but also get me sick. I usually spend days trying to recover or get over whatever new illness they’ve passed on to me. Not this time.

Glutathione dropper

It did take some adjustment getting used to taking a vitamin from a dropper and then holding the liquid under my tongue for 30-60 seconds. However, it was worth it. I was able to keep up with all the holiday activities and travel and managed to survive it all without acquiring a cold or other sickness. I’m actually still noticing the benefits of using the Nano Glutathione beyond the initial two weeks.

Nano D3 and Methyl B12

I’ve also enjoyed using the Glutathione with the Nano Vitamin D3 and Nano Methyl B12. The Vitamin D3 helps improve calcium absorption, which in turn is great for bone health. It’s also great for brain health and your immune system. The Methyl B12 improves brain health, boosts immunity, and helps fight cell damage caused by aging. I can see these three little blue bottles becoming a staple in my health routine for a long time to come.

 

If you’re interested in trying Nano Glutathione, you’re in luck. Nanoceutical Solutions is offering Beauty Brite readers a discount up to 43% on bottles of Nano Glutathione, plus a free bottle of Methyl B12. For more information on these special discounts visit their Product Discount page.

Creating And Canning Seasonal Flavors

Creating And Canning Seasonal Flavors-Ball Collection Elite Sharing Mason Jars-Chameleon Cold Brew Coffee

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Canning jars can be used for many purposes: to can and store foods, to combine ingredients to create meals, salad dressings, or marinades; as serving containers; and to store and organize any number of small household goods such as buttons, pens and pencils, spices and oils. The uses are just about endless and are only limited within the bounds of your imagination.

I enjoy making jams and jellies as well as canning pickles, so these are the ways I most often use canning jars. But, I also have one that I keep spools of thread and sewing needles in for quick access to materials to mend garments and stuffed animals that develop holes with repeated use.

Ball Collection Elite Design Series Sharing Mason Jars

Canning jars make great gift receptacles for many types of small gifts. Not only do you minimize waste since wrapping paper or gift bags aren’t required, but you can use other small and simple things to dress it up such as ribbon, twine, and/or a gift tag. This minimalist approach allows you to let the gift itself (rather than the wrapping) take center stage. In addition, gift recipients can keep the jar to re-use in their own home in any way that is useful to them.

I’m going to show you two ways that I like to use canning jars utilizing the new Ball® Collection Elite Design Series Sharing Jars. First, I’m going to use one to combine the ingredients to make a delicious fall drink using Mocha Chameleon Cold-Brew Coffee. Then, I will illustrate how I use them to make gift-worthy food items, like the Spiced Pear Butter I recently made, that are great gifted on their own or as an item in a larger gift basket to friends, family, co-workers and acquaintances alike….

The only beauty products I packed were the items that were unopened. In other words, I’ve been using name brand products for my hair.

Take a Walk on the Wild Side of Hurricane Irma

Take a Walk on the Wild Side of Hurricane Irma

Beauty Brite Disclosure 

2017 has been a challenging year for my family, and that’s putting it mildly. Let’s just say this summer hasn’t been my favorite season. I thought we were done with whatever life had thrown our way until things took another interesting, wild turn when Hurricane Irma decided to attack the entire state of Florida just a couple of weeks ago.

I live on the west or Gulf coast side of the state. Luckily, we don’t see too many hurricanes. The last major hurricane to hit our area was Charley in 2004. Sadly, it took out my childhood home, which had to be torn down to the studs and rebuilt. Thankfully, my parents, who were in the home at the time with our two dogs, some neighbors, and a bunny rabbit, were unharmed.

When we heard about Irma, we watched and waited to see where it would go. We debated the possibility of evacuating. I filled up every water bottle and plastic container we had with water because a week before the storm hit the shelves were empty. (Below is just a small sampling of what I filled up.)

Hurricane Irma Prep

I was able to find “designer” water here and there, which added to our stash. I bought several plastic containers to place our family albums and pictures in so they would have less of a chance of being damaged. We also had our hurricane shutters installed on the water facing side of our house.

On Wednesday we heard that the west coast would only experience tropical storm winds and rain, so we decided we could stay. On Thursday, my friend from the east coast called to ask if the offer to evacuate to our house was still open. It was of course, but unfortunately, just two hours later, the Irma had changed course and we realized we would have to evacuate. My house is on the water and in Zone A. Even though it was 15 feet up, we knew the county would force us out. (They did end up evacuating Zones A & B after we left.)

So, my dad and I began the task of packing ourselves and the family dog up to leave for my sister’s in Atlanta. I hardly remember what I threw in my suitcase, but it was a miss mash of clothes, valuables, and toiletries. I also packed up my electronics, important documents, and Henry (my stuffed animal I’ve had since I was 2).

Henry

Next, I gathered Coda’s (our 101 pound Rhodesian Ridgeback) dog food, treats, lease, and blankets, as well as some food and water for the trip.

I also put on my new favorite Okabashi Indigo Canvas Flip-Flops.  I knew I would want something comfortable and sturdy for the long, road trip ahead.

American made since 1984, Okabashi sandals and flip-flops are designed with protection and support in mind. In fact, all their footwear is manufactured in Buford, Georgia, which also allows the company to focus on sustainability and lowering their carbon footprint.

My Okabashi Indigo Canvas Flip-Flops are made from a patented plastic blend that ensures their durability and longevity. Let’s face it, when it comes to flip-flop, once you find a comfy pair you want them to last as long as possible. With their durable woven fabric straps and soft neoprene backing, it’s no wonder my Indigo Canvas shoes held up through the long trip, chasing after a dog, and dodging the wind and rain. I also really love that my flip-flops contain 15-25% recycled materials.

Okabashi Indigo Canvas Flip-Flops

WIth my feet in good hands and the car packed we jumped on the road. Little did we know that the usual 8-10-hour drive to Atlanta was about to take us 15. (Thanks Irma for constantly changing course). Every time the GPS would update us, the traffic delay would expand to 3, then 4, then 5+ hours. I wish I had pictures to show you how many cars were on I75 and how crowded the rest stops were along the way. Since I did most of the driving, I’m was not to capture the organized chaos, but I do have a picture that my cousin sent me. It gives a small idea of what approximately 7 million people having to evacuate from an entire state looks like.

Escaping Irma on I75N

Now imagine all of those cars also needing to get gas along the way. We literally had to come up with a tactic for finding and getting gas, which involved filling up anytime we pulled off the road to switch drivers or let Coda out.

It was pure insanity but we got lucky. The first place we tried allowed us to fill up five gallons, and later when we opted to take the back roads to avoid the traffic, we found gas again in Valdosta, GA. I was so tired by then that I had to ask the lady behind the counter to tell me where I was. With enough gas to make it the rest of the way and a tip to continue on the back roads we drove on.

Although the trip was harrowing and so, so, so long, it did provide some amusement. This mostly came from Coda. It was the poor thing’s first time taking a long road trip and being in a sedan instead of the usual SUV. Seeing the reactions of people when this behemoth of a dog emerged from the back seat was hilarious. One lady actually thought I had a deer on a lease.  Yes, he is that big. At one point Coda did try to make a break for it across a gas station parking lot. Not sure where he thought he was going. Thankfully, my Okabashi shoes helped me make the mad dash after him.

As we finally pulled into my sister’s driveway 15 hours later, I felt a sense of relief. Since it was 6 something in the morning we were greeted by the whole crew, including my dogphew, nephew, and niece. They were so excited to see us. I thought, finally, we can relax and spend some time with the munchkins. Unfortunately, our adventure had yet ended.

Dear old Irma, keep changing course. I checked in with my friend in South Florida, she was fine. We tried to persuade friends from our hometown to also come to Atlanta. They luckily found places to evacuate or staid safely at home. Finally, I watched as Irma turned up toward the middle of the state where my best friend and family lived. I had to text my BFF to let her know what was happening because they were already without power. (Below are some of the text messages I sent her of the storm.)

I kept an eye on our front door camera to see what was happening at home until our power went out. We tuned into the news to find out when Irma would come to visit Georgia. When the governor announced no one should be on the road, and all schools and most businesses would be closed, we became a bit concerned.

Tropical Storm Irma came a-knocking on Monday morning. It was a bit unnerving but not too bad until later in the day when we heard three loud pops and then darkness. We really didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. We had left Florida to avoid this precise issue. Turns out, several trees in my sister’s area had fallen on power lines knocking the power out for thousands. My six-year-old nephew proclaimed it was the worst day of his life because there was no internet. The kid has his priorities.

In the interim, our power came back on at home and my dad and I began to make plans to return home after discovering our house, and our town had been spared. It was really a miracle because just 30 miles south and east of us everything was under water and without power.

Okabashi Indigo Flip-Flops Wear

After spending Tuesday at a hotel, we decided to make the long drive home on Wednesday. Again, I wore my Okabashi Flip Flops. They served me well on the 12-hour return trip, which consisted of a mix of highway and back roads. We needed all the luck we could get to find gas and hopefully avoid missing the closing of roads because of the overflow of the Santa Fe River near Gainesville (North Central Florida).

Coda didn’t try to escape this time. Instead, he slept most of the way home, occasionally stinking up the car with his tummy troubles. For some reason, he refused to go to the bathroom during breaks. I can only imagine what people thought of me standing there saying, “Go poop. Go poop,” over and over to our confused dog.

When we finally saw the “Welcome to Florida” sign hours later, we rejoiced. This was later followed by more exclamations of happiness at the site of home as we pulled into the driveway.

Florida State Line

My sister finally got power back on Thursday. Both of us had to throw out most, if not all, of the food in our refrigerators and freezers. My dad needs a new roof on the house and some of the screen from the pool was ripped out and off. Irma added to the problems we were already experiencing with the roof. But all in all, we got lucky. We wouldn’t have to rebuild the house again. You can still see trees and some debris piled up around the county and some standing water, but not much else.

Irma home and neighborhood damage

Others in Florida and the islands weren’t so fortunate. Some people lost everything. Many still don’t have power even as I write this post. More storms are wreaking havoc or waiting in the pipeline. I’ve already donated some supplies to help those struggling, and I hope to do more. Perhaps I’ll donate some Okabashi Indigo Flip Flops because they work great in the hot Florida sun and in the wet, tropical storm-induced weather of Atlanta.
