HEALTH Helps: No Hungry Pangs, Just Less Appetite

This combination Garcinia Cambogia, Raspberry Ketones, Forskolin and Green Coffee Bean proprietary formulation in is a real appetite suppressant. I am on the max end of my weight range, and bravely took these pills once a day just to see if indeed it works better than dietary pills that have single components.

I’m amazed at how it significantly suppressed my appetite. In a span of 1 week, I lost 2 pounds, so I set it aside in the meantime as I have achieved my weight loss goal. I did not feel jittery, just a feeling of lightness and weightlessness with less bloating and less food volume intake. The natural L-carnitine gives me an extra energy boost to get through my day without feeling weak or less enthusiastic.

I’m now a happier 118-pounder in a 157 cm frame. In case I need fast results specially with the coming holiday feasting, I now know what to use to shed off pounds in the least time. I take it that taking a pill twice a day will deliver double the results.

DRINK Fest: Vodka Buck in a Genuine Copper Mug

Drinking in a copper container is believed to have health benefits besides keeping drinks cold longer in a rugged vintage-looking container. I enjoy the mood of drinking in one because of the following characteristics:

No nickel, tin, or steel. The mug is made of only pure solid copper. It has a lacquer finish that keeps it shiny, no need to polish which can compromise food safety, and which has the option to be sanded out to turn it into an antique finish in time. The copper and finish are of food-grade quality. The handle is welded, so no ugly rivets that can cause leaks or can come loose. The design leaves an interesting classic old Western masculine twist.
A real copper mug frosts up in seconds. These mugs get cold and stay cold longer than ordinary glass or ceramic mugs, probably 50% longer. Gives instant refreshment and lets me enjoy my drink longer, whether drinking water of mixed Vodka Buck.

The mug is well-made, looks stunning and functions well. I’ve used them for several rounds and it’s luster has not changed. It keeps my drinks chilled longer, is shatter-proof, odor-free and leaves no after-taste on my drinks. It’s a different drinking experience that can be shared with your fave man as it would make an excellent gift with its handcrafted box with a bronze vintage lock and coaster.

HEALTH Helps: Natural Chinese Herb that has Anti-Fungal, Anti-Arrhythmia and Anti-Diabetic Action

T.amz.BerberineHCl.NutriFountain.15.11.29

Berberine HCL by Nutri Fountain Health Research

It’s my first time to hear of this supplement that has anti-fungal, anti-arrhythmia (abnormal heartbeat), anti-diabetic and anti-carcinogenic, and after reading what it can do, I was eager to use it for my recurring yeast infection and propensity for diabetes (where I suffer intermittent hypoglycemia).

A week of use may be too soon, but it has improved my yeast infection which is noticeable in the absence of itchiness, discomfort and less abnormal secretions after 3 days of use following an active symptomatic recurrence. It comes from a plant and is considered a supplement making me more at ease with its use versus my perennial synthetic anti-fungal preparations of suppositories, topical ointments and oral tablets.

On the diabetic effect, it may be too soon to say that it prevents hypoglycaemic effects, but I have not suffered an episode of shaking, sweating and nausea after a week of taking it at 1 capsule (450 mg of the active component) per day or half the recommended dose. I am not suggesting this as medical advice, I am merely sharing my personal experience with this age-old Chinese medicinal herb. It is not a solution to my yeast or hypoglycaemic problem, but it has, in my opinion, relieved me of several symptoms and prevented active episodes.

HEALTH Helps: Natural Fruit to Curb Appetite + 3 Minerals

T.amz.GarciniaCambogia.OptimalXT.15.11.27

Garcinia Cambogia by OptimalXT

COMPARISON WITH OTHER FORMULAS: This is 500 mg of the active ingredient hydrocitric acid (HCA), plus 3 important minerals to support metabolic performance during weight loss, Calcium (Ca), Chromium (Cr) and Potassium (K). The bonus content of 50 mg, 200 micrograms and 50 mg for the minerals respectively, keep my internal biochemistry stable, important when I don’t eat a balanced meal due to appetite loss.

BACKGROUND: I am quite comfortable with my weight of 120 pounds in a 157 centimeter frame. I occasionally tip the scale when the volume and frequency of my meals increase mainly due to the convenience of fast-food. Everybody seems to be into the garcinia cambogia craze, and I thought why don’t I try preventing new fat cells from forming while controlling what is already present, that is, in the absence of diet and exercise.

Staying within my weight range can be difficult especially with my bingeing problem, and this garcinia cambogia with minerals formulation has helped me suppress my appetite at 1 cap per day with a glassful of water for weight maintenance. I’m glad it contains the necessary minerals to maintain healthy metabolism despite a possible lack of nutrients from lesser food intake.

These caps have no synthetic binders or fillers. I feel confident that I am controlling my hip expansion (having a pear figure) in an all-natural way. When I feel discomfort and think that taking these caps are the cause, I merely discontinue use without fear of long-term side-effects remembering that the source is a fruit that is normally eaten in tropical countries. I have not gained weight so far with ½ the recommended dose.

HOME Helps: Functional Cabinet Door Latch Keeps Off Prying Small Hands

T.amz.BabyProofLatches.TheBabyLodge.15.11.27

Child-Proof Cabinet Safety Locks (by 6s) by The Baby Lodge

When you live in a tiny house, storage solutions can be quite limiting, and it starts being an issue if you often have baby guests in tow! Since I have no choice but to keep risky poisonous cleaning chemicals on lower cabinets, I would need to baby-proof them to keep out prying curious hands from avoidable trouble.

These safety locks is a functional and easy-to-install solution as it keeps cabinets securely locked by merely adhering 2 strap holders on both sides (one fixed and one moving surface like the door, or both moving like 2 doors) with double-sided tapes. Because it does not require drilling, it can be installed intuitively or with simple instructions. The only difficult step is when cutting the plastic notched strap and attaching it to the steady catch or strap holder to get the right length that will prevent the doors from being slightly pried open, if you choose it to be completely closed.

The latch opens by pushing on 2 buttons on the latch catch (as the other ideally remains fixed). I recommend the latch opening to be on the moving part (ex. cabinet door) to avoid being caught in the crevice upon closing.

I should say that the adhesives are sturdy enough after passing a pull stress test by 120-pounder me mimicking a pull force of a 4-year old. Since the lock set comes in 6s, I can use the others as a deterrent for cabinets and pet doors that need to be more secure, without going through the hassle of installing a lock and key.

HOME Helps: Takes Out Closet & Basement Odors

T.amz.MouseDeodorizer.J.I's.15.11.27

Pest & Mouse Deodorizer by J.I’s Mouse Deodorizer

No matter how I clean out our junk closet, a few months will bring the same fetid smell of pest droppings. Even with traps and poisons to get rid of these pests, the odor remains for days or even months if it’s not properly aired out. I tried the traditional baking soda and charcoal to absorb the undesirable smell, but it is not enough. The smell sticks to the walls and floors.

This mouse deodorizer comes in a biodegradeable paper pouch where you need to poke or slash 3 to 5 holes of ½-inch long for the deodorizing effect and scent to emit. Each pack can cover a room volume of approximately 5 cubic meters. For larger areas, poke more holes in a bag, or simultaneously open the bags according to room size. It leaves a fresh scent, too, that is non-irritating. I like it that it is non-toxic and safe with children and pets.

HOME Helps: Wider Grip, Floating Heads & Hookability onto Pan Edges

First to go when I buy kitchen utensil sets are flipper spatulas. So this piece is the first to be tested with almost everyday frying. What I like about it is its wide handle grip, that gives better leverage when used. The material after several use had not melted down on the tips or by the long stem where it hits the side of the pan due to its temp threshold of 410-degrees Farenheit. The holes on the spatula allows fat to drip from fried foods prior to finally lifting it off the pan.

For all, the handles where it meets the slimmer stems of heads, are larger in width so it acts as a hook onto pan edges to prevent the entire utensil from slipping into food for large wide-mouthed containers. It also allows utensils not to touch the surface, seemingly “floating”, when laid laterally, in case you have to put one down without a plate.

The carousel is a useful holder to make all utensils accessible and visible when there are several dishes to prepare simultaneously.

HEALTH Helps: Copper & Neoprene Stability & Warmth in an Arm Compression Sleeve

My job entails being in a constant position for 12 hours, that is, I stay in front of a computer endlessly. This position stiffens my muscles tremendously, especially on those body parts that are rarely moving, one of them is my arms.

On one hand, copper is believed to have medicinal values when attached to the skin. I actually wear a copper bracelet daily. On the other hand, compression allows proper blood circulation for stagnant blood flow. I wear compression stockings due to genetic predisposition to DVT (deep venous thrombosis), but this is another issue.

I like it that the material is hygienic, odor-free and easily washable without compromising the elasticity feature for better fit. It is easier to wear than most compression sleeves I’ve had in the past. To put them on, I bunch it up and slide it into my arm, and when I need to take it off, I roll off the material like a sock. I can wear it under long-sleeved shirts discreetly.

Having used it for almost a month now, I feel a lightness to my arms, no more heavy sore feeling after a full day’s work in a single clerical position.

FASHION Flair: Professional Statement with a Chic Credit Card Holder

My sales and marketing job involves a lot of image building. Something within my control is how I look, and that includes the accessories I use when working. This credit card holder looks classy and elegant with its soft sheeny metal material. It is functional by opening through a push-button to 6 individual slots to carry credit and business cards in a fan-like manner for easy pull-out. It’s best to insert 1 card per slot because the last slots at both ends are glued to the inside panels of the case and may give in if you put more. It is 1 cm thick and carries the standard credit card size. It is quite heavy, but it adds to the professional elegance.

It comes with a fancy black box that come useful for gift-giving.

HEALTH Helps: Relieves Itchy Skin Reactions to Cold Weather

T.amz.Dermaroot.Urbal.15.11.27

Dermaroot by Urbal

When the cold season creeps in, I start getting rashes, my skin is dry and itchy. Even with therapeutic lotions, the moment the applied layer dries out, the skin condition is not improved. When I am in a rush to work, applying topicals can eat up so much time since I want it absorbed before putting on clothing. Otherwise, the topicals will just stick to clothing.

This 18 natural ingredient-containing caps has relieved the urticaria significantly, which is my priority discomfort issue. My urge to relieve the itch by scratching has diminished, specially at night when the attack is extreme. The appearance of my skin however, has remained the same, and I think that the topicals would still help somehow. Since I’ve used this for less than a month, I am still observing its aesthetic effects.
