Activation Products Review: How Can You Develop Vibrant Health?

I was first introduced to Activation Products during a “midnight of the soul” experience with my youngest son. I told myself I was searching out help for my colic-ridden baby; truth be told I wanted help for myself.  I was horribly sleep-deprived and had a bad case of post partum depression.

I had read that magnesium deficiency is sometimes a contributor to sleep disturbance–let me tell you, my baby had sleep disturbance!!!  Consequently, so did I.  But I knew I couldn’t shove a horse-pill-sized magnesium tablet down my son’s throat to see if it made a difference.  That’s where this novel concept (to me) of spray-on-magnesuim arrested my attention and I immediately purchased it from the company Activation Products.

I wish I could report that the spray magnesium made all the difference in the world, but I wasn’t consistent enough to see a difference.  Five years later, however, I tried the second generation, and “Wow”, have I seen an impact.

What our family has experienced is better sleep for our kids;  easing of sore muscles, and blessedly an easing of intense and uptight emotions in our youngest child.  Yes, there is a discernible difference when we douse him in magnesium spray; he’s calmer and less irritable–“Yay!”

So what’s the deal with magnesium?  Good question!  It’s been reported that with the seriously reduced mineral content in our soil, this master-mineral magnesium is sadly missing from our foods, leaving most of us bereft of it’s vital life-source.

Magnesium Ease is considered to be one of the best natural remedies for relaxing sore muscles, Magnesium Ease, Activation Productscramps, spasms, and restless legs syndrome.  Interestingly, magnesium is reported to be responsible for over 300 enzymatic reactions in our bodies and it regulates serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to be involved in the onset of migraine headaches. Magnesium is calming for the nervous system.  For my youngest child, the calming of the nervous system is most assuredly a relief.

Magnesium Ease is indicated in helping people relax in the evening, falling asleep faster, and sleeping better throughout the night because it improves your blood circulation.  This spray-on product does not leave a sticky residue  and supplies the magnesium our bodies need.

Magnesium Ease is one of the purest natural magnesium chlorides available.  It is made in Canada and is 100% pure.  There are no chemicals, no fillers and no animal testing. 

To experience better sleep, better mood, and a calmer nervous system check out Ease Magnesium spray!

My next foray into the world of Activation Products was Marine Phytoplanton.  Let me tell you, it really is as horrible tasting as it sounds.  I need to say that right off the hop.  Nonetheless, I’ve been so impressed with the stuff, that the taste is a moot point.

I love to try new and innovative health products.  I’m always on the lookout for the newest and best in green products.  And I’ve tried my fair-share.  I have been using a great organic multi-superfood product for about 2 years.  I saw my nails get stronger, my bones increase in density among other benefits.  THEN, I tried Ocean’s Alive 2.0 Marine Phytoplankton!

Activation Products Ocean's Alive 2.0Oceans Alive 2.0 Marine Phytoplankton far surpassed the previous green product I had used.  My nails have gotten so strong, they’re hard to cut–finger and toe nail health are indicators of overall health.  My skin is better and my energy is good.  Despite the taste, I’ll be choosing Marine Phytoplankton over my previous green product for the foreseeable future.

Oceans Alive 2.0 Marine Phytoplankton is a plant-based premium superfood and the source of all marine based nutrition. It has been said that this is the food that powers the planet.  If you’re into biology or ecology, this will make total sense to you.

Oceans Alive 2.0 Marine Phytoplankton is a concentrated solution that fortifies the electrolytic fluid system with 90+ ionic, trace and organic minerals that are fully bioavailable to the body.  That is probably one of the reasons my nails have become super-strong!  Furthermore, Oceans Alive 2.0 Marine Phytoplankton’s new advanced formula powerfully addresses oxidative stress, DNA damage and cellular impairment to optimize your health.

Oceans Alive 2.0 requires no refrigeration.  The product comes packaged in 1 oz. dark amber glass bottles with high-end food grade droppers for easy dispensing.  And, I am not the only one who is loving Ocean’s Alive 2.0! People that consume Ocean’s Alive 2.0 express enhanced brain function, improved immune function, improved cellular repair, anti-inflammatory support, antioxidant support, improved circulation, improved heart function, and a residual “grounding energy”. 

To increase your wellness in virtually every area, try Ocean’s Alive 2.0 Marine Phytoplankton today.

The Beauty of Food Review: Simple Foods For Lasting Beauty?

Have you ever wondered at all the creams, lotions and potions that exist in your local drug store?  When look at the container to read the ingredients, are you able to pronounce some of those words?  Do you question what in the world Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride is?  Yeah, me too.

If you’ve been reading this blog for some time, you are aware that I have been on a quest to find alternatives to the chemical-laden must-haves that the food and beauty industries thrust people.

A while back, I became interested in the work of Hanan, a Middle-Eastern born girl who suffered gravely at the hands of war and fled to America as a lonely refuge.

Sadly, Hanan’s mother was killed, but not before she passed along treasured beauty secrets from her royal Persian heritage.

To learn how to incorporate essential beautifying foods found in your own home, click here.

Hanan did not understand much English when she arrived in America.  Furthermore, she was faced with all the other difficulties refuges encounter when they flee their home countries–financial pressures, the need for shelter, community and a positive future.  However, those things did not stand in Hanan’s way.  With a few fortuitous encounters and whole lot of courage, she created  the ebook “The Beauty of Food” shortly after arriving on our shores.

“The Beauty of Food”  is remarkable for a couple of reasons.  Firstly, it showcases the resilient human spirit despite overwhelming obstacles like Hanan faced with the lost of her family and country.  Secondly, it delivers on it’s promise to provide natural food combinations that work as targeted beauty treatments.

When I first reviewed the guide, I expected it to be like so many others.  You know the ones I mean; guides that tell you what to ingest in order to develop healthier skin and hair.  That’s all fine and well, but I’ve read so many of them now, I know exactly what they’ll tell me.  Eat avocados, gelatine and unprocessed oils, maintain good hydration, drink green tea and the like.  Same old, same old.

In “The Beauty of Food” Hanan provides beauty regime recipes that you use on your skin and nails.  Foods such as tomatoes, bananas, honey, apple cider vinegar, tea, milk, sugar, etc.   I have every one of those staples in my kitchen right now.  What fun I had when I was first introduced to this book!  

Enjoy beautiful skin just like Persian Princesses, using essential nutrients found in your kitchen.  Click here now.


In my opinion, this book has few drawbacks.  However, I did notice that some of the grammar and sentence structure were a little weak.  And a few recipe descriptions could have had more detail.  I chalk that up to a non-English speaker creating an English ebook; an extremely minor inconvenience.

A couple of the beauty “recipes” are a bit messy.  But hey, you’re playing with your food.  What can you expect?


This beauty guide is simple and straight forward.  It is inexpensive and practical.  It provides time-tested beauty strategies that have apparently lasted centuries.

“The Beauty of Food”  is a money-saver if you are looking for beauty strategies that are inexpensive and easy to find.  This beauty guide provides tips for common concerns like split ends, and less common concerns such as hair loss in women.

Hanan will teach you about how to address oily skin, dry skin or wrinkles.  You will learn how certain foods benefit your hands and feet, depending on the concern.  Hanan will instruct you on natural hair solutions as well as facial masks you can create in a matter of minutes.

The Final Word

“The Beauty of Food” is a must-have for women (and men) who are looking to reduce the amount of chemical they use on their skin on a daily basis.  The beauty “recipes” are simple and easy to incorporate; best of all, they work.  The ebook targets skin and hair problems.  It also provides care-tips for overall skin and hair health.

theCream Review: Is Nature’s Superfood for Skin for Real?

I fell in love with theCream a couple of years ago.  At that time, I was searching out options to alter my skin care regime from chemical-based products to all-natural products.  Did you know that, between eye creams, skin creams, body lotions, deodorants, and her daily grooming and make-up routine, the average woman could be subjecting her skin to an alarming 515 different synthetic chemicals every single day?

It became a frustrating exploration because though many products stated, “Natural Ingredients”, upon further inspection the “natural ingredients” were few and far between.  Those products did include a limited number of natural ingredients, but they were vastly overshadowed by chemical ingredients that only someone with a Ph.D. in biochemistry could pronounce.

The history of the Pink Cow Brand is fascinating.  It is equally fascinating to learn how this product -line has grown and become an award winning group of skin care products that women and men LOVE!

The line was developed by Denie Hiestand, a natural health consultant, author, research expert, and former successful New Zealand dairy farmer.  Denie has spent decades studying the skin and toxins/chemicals in everyday cosmetics and personal care products and identified a strong link between the high usage of chemical personal care products and the growing rates of cancers, infertility, hormone imbalances, allergies and various other modern day illnesses.

In response to his patient’s requests, Denie set about to create a completely pure and natural range of skincare products which not only contained none of the harmful additives found in the majority of commercial products, but  contained life-giving, cell nourishing ingredients which feed and nourish the skin.

Kiwi Natural Beauty AwardTestimonies abound reporting that this set of products is innovative and remarkable.  This year, “Beauty experts and moms across the USA tested and reviewed hundreds of products and voted theCream Face as the Best Facial Moisturizer in the recent Kiwi Magazine 2015 Natural Beauty Awards. These awards honor the best of the best; products were scored on quality and performance.”

Ruby Lane Make-Up reported, “I absolutely love this moisturiser and would certainly say it is the best that I have ever used.  I have been using the product for almost two months so it has received a very fair and realistic trial.”

A key component, and the reason theCreme has become so popular it that it uses Colostrum, the life-giving first-food baby mammals get from their mothers.

Colostrum is:

  • The most powerful and complete all natural ingredient known
  • Produced by female mammals for approximately 72 hours after birthing
  • Is not milk, but rather the starter of all life, and completely recognized, accepted and utilized by human cells

One reviewer indicated she initially thought the smell “unusual”–not bad, she says–but unusual.  That makes sense to me, as conventional perfumes are not used in the 100% natural product.  Most of us are so used to perfumes and dyes in our personal care products that the lack of a powerful scent seems strange to us.

From my own experience, I didn’t find the eye creme as effective as the “chemical” variety that I use.  It’s definitely better than using nothing at all, but it does’t give me as long lasting a lift as other un-natural options–sorry girls!


100% natural is pretty hard to beat.  These products are even safe for pregnant and nursing mothers, they are so clean.  The technology for extracting colostrum is sound, as are the ethical practices used in protecting the animals and their young.

theCream began in 2012.  Since it’s inception theCream won awards every year following for its superseding products.  The catchy company tag line is, “100% Natural, up to 85% Colostrum, 0% Bull”.

My absolute favourites are:  Face, Facial Serum, Lips and Body Elixir.  I have never felt anything on my lips like, well, Lips.  It is smooth, not greasy and literally reduces lines on my lips.  The Body Elixir is stupendous.  It has orange oil in it, and the combination scent is divine.  Even my children (and I have boys) ask for it when the weather is cold and they have chapped hands.  It works great and smells even better.

Final Word

Pink Cow products are quickly becoming an ALL-natural-facial-care revolution.  They are reasonably priced when you consider top facial care products of the chemical variety.  Furthermore, they last, and last and last.  I bought a three-pack of theCream for face and I’m still not through it.  That was about 18 months ago; I still have one bottle left.  I find that remarkable.
