Typically, when you drink fluids, they pass through the entire digestive system, losing water and other nutrients before your body can absorb them.

Review of Free Merchandise from Born Tough

Hi, guys! This is Nikki, again! I hope you guys are doing well. Today, I’m here with some very good things to share with you. So, my friends at Born Tough sent me some very cool merchandise. And I am going to share my experience with you. No doubt, this company comes with many excellent workout apparel choices for both men and women. I was delighted to receive this package and check out my insights below:

Screen Shot 2014-02-28 at 10.49.20 AM

Born Tough Women Limitless Sheer Muscle Tank Top:

Screen Shot 2020-02-19 at 11.58.34 AM

I absolutely fell in love with this tank top. It is an athletic wear that you cannot ignore. It goes well with the body and comes with great comfort. Moreover, the design of the tank top is modern and goes well with the requirements of the gym as well. The side seams are very comfy. Wearing this lightweight fabric truly made my heart fill up with happiness. Moreover, the dress is quite flexible as well. I would recommend this tank top to everyone. As the name implies, it truly is limitless! Check out this marvel here.

 

Born Tough Women Contoured Tracked Bottom:

Screen Shot 2020-02-19 at 11.59.04 AM

So, this bottom became an instant favorite. It comes with Born Tough’s SWIFT fabric which is their signature fabric. And boy, does it get any better? With flexibility and comfort going hand in hand in this cotton and spandex marvel, this fabric is surely the best one to workout with. The dress has a tapered construction and also comes with side pockets. This bottom not only fulfills the needs of a gym suit but also addresses modern fashion needs.

 

Born Tough Snapback:

This snapback is one of the best out there. It is not only water-resistant but wind-resistant as well. This baby comes with a reflective visor, sweat-wicking, and breathable cooling mesh head panes. The Velcro strap is also adjustable. Even though this one’s a favorite among men, I also fell in love with it. Just look at the offerings for just $14.99. Plus, the logo at the front facing of the snapback is also really imposing. I like to express myself. And this cap goes well with my personality.

 

The company is also quite confident in their products. This is the sole reason that they provide replacements for a year from the date of purchase. Moreover, the company excels in providing fast deliveries. They ship orders as soon as you place them and deliver them within 48 hours. That is equal to 2 days! Now, how cool is that!?

 

It is no surprise that this company is one of the leaders in the workout apparel business. My takeaways are very positive. There is always room for improvement but I hear that they invest heavily in R&D as well. Moreover, their SWIFT technology speaks volumes regarding their efforts in this area. With that said, I would urge you to try their products. Who knows, you might also become an admirer just like I have.

A sweet (and natural) way to cut back on sugar!

 

As a health coach I recommend people cut back on sugar and eat things unsweetened so that they change their tastes and crave sweets less.

When that’s not possible, I always recommend natural foods rather than chemicals. I also work with and write for Diabetic Lifestyle, so sugar is always a topic I keep in mind when doing product reviews.

Recently I discovered Dolcedì – it’s a sweetener in plastic bottles that you squeeze, the consistency of honey, but clear. It can be used any way you would use traditional table sugar or honey; and because it is sweeter than table sugar, you can use less to achieve your desired sweetness. It’s neutral flavor enhances the taste of food and drinks without altering them. Dolcedì is also perfectly soluble in both cold and hot drinks and can be enjoyed with pancakes, on yogurt, in fruit salad, and in baking. With 25% fewer calories by weight than table sugar, Rigoni di Asiago Dolcedì is made from the concentrated and filtered sugar extracted from 100% organic apples.

Eating low-glycemic foods is one tool to help keep diabetes under control. As a low-glycemic alternative to sugar and other sweeteners, Dolcedì is a healthier choice for diabetics. It has a glycemic index (GI) of 22.5 +/- 5.

The glycemic index (GI) is a rating system for foods that contain carbohydrates. It helps you know how quickly a food with carbohydrate raises blood sugar, so you can focus on eating foods that raise blood sugar slowly.

As you see in the tables below, the graph on the left shows the incremental glycemic curves for sugar (glucose) vs Dolcedì. As you can see, sugar causes the blood sugar to spike, while the Dolcedì helps maintain a lower, steady blood sugar. The graph on the right compares the GI of both sugar and IMG_5022

So if you’re looking for a sweeter way to cut back in sugar, this might be your best natural alternative!

The Mysore Practice Rugs offer a great feel, remind practitioners of the ‘old school’ method when yogis practiced on cotton, they absorb sweat, and work great on top of any sticky mat helping prolong its life. For extra stick on your down dog, I recommend wetting your hands a bit before the sweat kicks in to glue you down. The cotton rugs are sanitary and also easy to clean.

3. Men’s and Women’s Toe Socks that are ingenious, by Injinji $12-30.00 http://www.injinji.com 

I was out running the other day, and got a blister on one foot and had a bleeding tow from a sharp toenail on a nearby toe, on the other foot.  Now I know how to avoid limping home. The Injinji socks for men and women (in many bright colors like tangerine and daffodil) offers increased two-way stretch, enabling the material to better stretch across a foot arch and providing compression throughout the foot. The fit of the individual toe-sleeves are redesigned for a better, snugger fit throughout the toes without any excess material. Dreamy durable, light fibers make for cool, dry and bloody and blister-free feet. They have ankle-height for a nice summer run, as well as calf and knee- height for when the weather calls for a legging attached to your sock!

And whether you’re a snow junkie, hiking and outdoor enthusiast, or looking for compression, Injinji has you covered with socks for Hiking and outdoorCompressionTrail Running, and Snow socks (click on the link).

8. Hot read:  Inches Aren’t Everything http://steamromance.com/books/ $11.95 paperback, downloads

This fall when you are recovering from sweat sessions and it’s a little cold outside, warm up with a good book… One that puts you IN THE MOOD to go to the gym or turn on that NikkiFItness video instead of skipping your next workout. It might put you in the mood for other “calorie burning activities” as well…with the newest book from Steam Romance. Inches Aren’t Everything by Sarah B. Daniels, is an erotic yet suspenseful tale of the elite trainers of Body Management Corporation (BMC) and the between-the-sheets rival battle against its head trainer, Dean Stoddard, and his colleague, Orlanda Kennedy.  I sat down to start reading this with another book as a backup when this failed to get my attention… and lets say that other book remains closed. This page turner takes Shades of Grey for a body sculpting class. Read it, then work out, and repeat.

9. Febreze Laundry Odor Eliminator  $8.99 http://www.newfebreze.com

Now that this product review article has you all hot and sweaty, time to get “clean” again.

One thing about working out, it often leaves you too tired to do laundry right away…You undress and throw the stinky athletic wear into your hamper. They sit, getting smellier and smellier for the next two days. To help banish these odors, Febreze has created the Febreze Laundry Odor Eliminator. It’s an in-wash solution used with your detergent. The odor eliminator targets hard to get odors while your detergent focuses on washing away dirt and stains. Febreze Laundry Odor Eliminator is sold at Walmart, Mejier, HEB, Kmart, A&P, Pathmark, Stop&Shop and many other grocery, drug and mass retailers. It’s available in a 50-fl ounce bottle in “Fresh Scent.” And now we’re getting fresh again…

10.  Hit it where it hurts: Salonpas pain patches  www.salonpas.us (prices vary)

Getting fit sometimes results in aches and pains and reaching for over the counter (OTC) pills is not always the healthiest solution. Doctors agree that topical OTC analgesic products, in the form of creams, gels, sprays and patches, are a healthier solution for pain management because  “Acetaminophen has a narrow therapeutic window, meaning the difference between a safe and effective dose and an overdose, which could led to liver toxicity, is a relatively small increment in milligram consumption,” says Dr. Aristotle Economou, author and acclaimed Beverly Hills physician. “Topical pain relievers such as creams, gels and sprays work locally and large reduce, although they do not entirely eliminate the systemic risk, that OTC pain pills can present. The Salonpas patches are the first and only topical non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSADs) approved through the FDA’s rigorous New Drug Application process which is the same process used to approve prescription medicines.” By putting the medicine right at the site of pain, bypassing the stomach and liver, Salonpas can use less medicine to deliver an effective dose.

I recently used them for a pulled calf muscle and a sore back, as well as for normal muscle aches from working out after being off on maternity leave for 6 weeks. Try the Salonpas Pain Relief Patch and Arthritis Pain Patch which are the only FDA-approved OTC pain patches, Salonpas Pain Relieving GEL-Patch HOT, and Salonpas Pain Relieving Jet Spray and the Salonpas DEEP Relieving Gel for your sculpting soreness and love your liver!
