Sleep Well for Kids Review + Giveaway

How about giving a good night's sleep to an entire family?

As any parent will tell you, kids need their sleep!  When we sleep, we thrive.  Deep restorative sleep regenerates and rejuvenates us; it heightens our sense of well-being.  When we don’t sleep well, our bodies and our minds are deprived of the chance to repair and renew and this can lead to serious problems, especially for children and their parents.   But kids just aren’t always ready to just “settle down” when bed time comes.

"Sleep Well for Kids," combines soothing guided imagery and relaxing melodies to create a nurturing atmosphere that can help children and their parents drift off to sleep, making bedtime a relaxing experience for everyone.  Janet Montgomery CH.t. is your guide as she leads you on a leisurely stroll through her neighborhood to a farm, where we are introduced to a variety of “friends” with a simple message of kindness to all animals, and respect for nature as we are relaxed to sleep.  It is that simple, just a qualified guide with a sweet and comforting voice, and some beautiful music to help set the mood.

Children are introduced to the basics of breathing, progressive relaxation for their body, and visualization techniques for managing worry and relaxing into a restful sleep.  “Sleep Well for Kids” is a wonderful tool for helping children to learn the essential life-skills associated with calming down and relaxing.  Parents will find they will also get the rest they need too!

Great for kids ages 1 - 99+

Cassandra's review-  The CD is mostly talking and with the sound effects it presents a guided story for your kids to sleep with.    Listen to it for yourself first and make sure there is nothing that will upset your child.  For instance if they are afraid of cats because this could go the other way.  However it is sweet and most children would love it!

Prenatal Multivitamin Review

About Multivitamins
Multivitamins are supplements that contains at least 3 or more vitamins and/or minerals in amounts that are below tolerable upper limits established by the Office of Dietary Supplements to help ensure that the body's nutrient needs are met and risks of health conditions associated with specific nutrient deficiencies are minimized.
Most commercially available multivitamin supplements feature vitamins and minerals in one or more of the following forms:
Synthetic isolates created wholly in a lab from industrial chemicals
Cultured nutrients created by culturing vitamin and mineral isolates in nutritional yeast
Whole-food nutrients extracted from natural food sources (e.g. herbs, fruits, spices, & vegetables)
A combination of the three forms listed above
Forms of Multivitamins - Synthetic Isolates vs. Cultured Nutrients vs. Whole-food Nutrients
Synthetic Isolates - Although not ideal because they are synthetic and created in a lab from industrial chemicals, synthetic isolates are frequently used in commercial multivitamin formulations to achieve high doses of vitamins and minerals without the premium price tag associated with food-based and whole-food vitamins. Although relatively inexpensive compared to cultured nutrients and whole-food multivitamin supplements, products formulated using synthetic vitamins and minerals suffer from issues related to poor bioavailability, poor assimilation, non-compliance due to metallic/medicinal aftertastes, and tend to produce side effects like nausea when taken on an empty stomach.
Cultured Nutrients - Cultured Nutrients are synthetic isolates that are cultured in a blend of nutritional yeast, S. cerevisiae being the most common, and other vital nutrients. The benefit of culturing isolated vitamins in this nutritional yeast blend is that it transforms the vitamin isolate into a whole-food matrix that resembles food. This form of vitamins is safe, natural, wholesome, and does not have the metallic taste associated with synthetic vitamin isolates. This form of vitamins is also better assimilated/utilized by the body than synthetic isolates.
Whole-food Nutrients - The terms "whole-food" and "food-based" are, without a doubt, the most overused and abused terms in the supplements industry. Most companies use these terms loosely to either market vitamin isolates cultured in yeast / probiotics or, in extreme cases, to market products that contain synthetic vitamin isolates along with a small amount of fruit and vegetable powders to justify the reference to "food" on the label. This kind of labeling is misleading and a disservice to customers who are looking for vitamins derived from conventionally grown food sources. As a general rule, products that claim to be "food-based" or "whole-food," and list yeast (S. cerevisiae) or probiotics instead of the actual food source that the vitamins were extracted from are NOT true whole-food multivitamin products. Whole-food vitamins and minerals are highly bioavailable nutrients that are extracted by concentrating the full spectrum of naturally-occurring nutrients and their co-factors from conventional food sources like fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices..
Prenatal Multi is a synergistic complex of food-based nutrients concentrated from 100% certified organic fruits, vegetables, and herbs using a patent pending process AND ActivFood™ nutrients cultured in a proprietary whole-food matrix comprised of nutritional yeast, probiotics, bioactive enzymes, glycoproteins, lipoproteins, chlorophyll, glucomannan, Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), glutathione, ß-glucans, lipoic acid, essential trace minerals and CoQ10.Prenatal Multi does NOT contain any vitamins or minerals in the synthetic form.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does Prenatal Multi contain anything other than the active ingredient?
In addition to the active ingredient, each vegetarian capsule of this multivitamin product contains a food concentrate that the nutrients are cultured in, which includes S. cerevisiae and other vital nutrients like CoQ10, complex carbohydrates (beta-1,3-glucans and mannan), dietary fiber, SOD (superoxide dismutase) and glutathione (an antioxidant found in yeast that plays a major role in cellular defense mechanisms). To some extent, this food concentrate is considered an integral part of the active ingredient and does not qualify as an additive or filler in the truest sense of the word.
Is Prenatal Multi free of allergens and GMOs?
Prenatal Multi is verified free of egg, gluten, milk, peanut and shellfish by an independent, third-party lab. Although the product contains a soy derivative (Natto, from which the K2 is extracted), the soy protein allergen is removed during processing. Individuals who have an allergen or intolerance to soy, yeast or any of the other ingredients in the food concentrate that the multivitamin nutrients are cultured in should consult their healthcare provider before taking the product. This product is pending GMO-free verification by the Non-GMO Project™.
Is Prenatal Multi suitable for Vegans / Vegetarians?
Prenatal Multi does not contain any animal-derived ingredients and is, therefore, suitable for both vegans and vegetarians.
Is Prenatal Multi safe for long-term use?
Prenatal Multi should be safe for both short-term and long-term use when taken as directed and under the guidance of a licensed pharmacist or healthcare professional.
Is Prenatal Multi suitable for individuals with a medical condition?
Individuals with a known or suspected medical condition should always talk to a licensed medical professional before beginning any form of supplementation. It is never advisable to self-diagnose or self-treat a medical condition.

Cassandra's review-  I have only tried these a few times. They are easy to swallow and did not hurt my stomach.  If you leave them in your mouth and do not swallow they will taste bad.  I drank plenty of water while taking them.  This would be a perfect blend for women who need a good mutli vitamin even if they are not in the prenatal stage.

Mosquito Repellent Incense Sticks Product Review

Your search for the Best 100% Natural Mosquito Repellent Outdoor Incense Sticks - Deet Free and Non-toxic ends now! 


Keep black flies, mosquitoes, and other biting insects from pestering and ruining your outdoor events. Let these old-fashioned punk sticks help you fight the bite. When lit, the smoke drives away bugs, but isn't offensive to people so you can enjoy the great outdoors pest-free! It is a 100% natural mosquito repellant which is safe for use around children and pets.

Each 10½" stick burns just shy of an hour; it depends on the wind factor. Wind will reduce the burn time.

When using these sticks, place 4 sticks approx. 10 - 12 feet apart in a general square area from each other. See diagram located in the photos.

Remember that it is best to fight the pesky mosquitos when it gets close to dusk or at dawn. However, you can use these sticks at any time.

If you plan to remain in the area for an extended period, we recommend you place them in pairs in each desired location - lighting one at a time. You can light up the next stick when the time comes.

Cassandra's Review-  You can not use these where this is great winds.  You will need quite a few to create enough power to make the bugs flee, I have witnessed bugs going toward it, but maybe they were just confused by the incense.  Now if you were having a BBQ and has a screen porch, with these well placed and plentiful they would help.  Also if you sit and breathe them in , they can get you very sick, so make sure your in an area that gets good circulation and do not let the kids and pets by them.

Living Natural Yacon Syrup Review

Living Natural Yacon Syrup is a great tasting alternative to sugar and a natural boost to weight loss.

Living Natural Yacon Syrup is an all-natural food that helps in slimming down, boosting metabolism and energy levels, and providing overall gut protection.  It is a great tasting alternative sweetener that not only suppresses in-between meal sugar cravings, but also contains only a third of the calories of ordinary table sugar.  Taken alone, with drinks, or used in preparing foods like cookies or muffins, it gives a rich sweet flavor similar to molasses.  By simply substituting sugar or sweetener with the equivalent amount of yacon syrup gives a delectable twist to refreshing drinks like juice, tea or coffee, homemade and gourmet cuisine, and even grandma's time-tested recipes.  Whilst improving the flavor of food and drinks, this natural wonder helps make them healthier too!

The yacon root is a soluble fiber that helps people feel full.  Yacon contributes few calories because it passes through the body undigested.  The active ingredient, which leads to weight loss, is fructooligosaccharides (FOS).  FOS is also found in onions, garlic, asparagus, bananas, artichokes and chicory, but the concentration in yacon is much higher.  With a low GI (or glycaemic index), this makes it suitable for diabetics and those suffering from digestion problems.  Fiber assists in lowering blood sugar, cuts cholesterol and can help to prevent colon cancer by pushing waste out through the colon.  It absorbs water and cleans the gastric cavity along the way for ease with bowel movements which eliminates internal toxins faster. Additionally, the low GI of this root crop extract results to the steady rise of glucose level in the blood, which in turn leads to small gentle increases of insulin in the body.  This maintains the feeling of fullness for longer periods and prevents unwanted between-meal snacking, a better and healthier method than dieting or skipping meals.

Living  Natural Yacon Syrup is produced from only pure quality yacon root crops, with no coloring or additives used to preserve its purity.  It is manufactured in state-of-the-art US facilities approved according to FDA standards.

Cassandra's Review- The syrup taste good and when used in small quantities can be good for you! I like to add it to my waffles and tea in the morning.
