Here’s why…

With that in mind…get some well thought out ‘braincare!’

You decide which you love most…Fig & Dark Chocolate or Fig & Roasted Peanut…either way…feed your brain, don’t delay!

They got it right…and what sticks out to me right away is “DECISIONS” – making that important decision, just as you make daily with thousands of other topics, of what to eat, how much, when and more! #StayAheadOfBrainFog

Consumer spending on health and beauty is increasing globally, with Asia & Oceania driving most of the growth. North America is currently the largest region in terms of spend, accounting for 36% of global revenue. Whilst strong growth is projected, its share will decline to 33% as other regions grow at a faster rate.

Leading specialists compete in a highly concentrated health and beauty sector. Walgreens and CVS dominate the health & beauty sector, contributing to 62% of the top 10 specialists’ sales, which is set to reach 65% by 2022. With global consolidation a key trend within the sector, smaller specialists will need to invest in their fulfilment capabilities and broader health and beauty service provision, to compete over the next five years.

Other top global retailers are also adding more health & beauty services to their overall proposition. Amazon and Zalando have recently launched online beauty brands, whilst Alibaba is investing in its provision of the ‘future pharmacy’. Such developments mean that innovation across the health, beauty and personal care sector will be increasingly inspired by retailers beyond the traditional drugstore or pharmacy channel.

As consumer interest in health & beauty peaks, the sector will grow in importance. Health & beauty consumer spending as a share of total retail format sales is set to steadily increase from 5.6% in 2012 to almost 6.5% by 2022. This increase in share means growth in consumer spending on health & beauty is set to outpace growth in overall global retail format sales.

For retailers and suppliers selling beauty, recent focus has centred around elevating the customer experience of shopping the category and, particularly, ensuring in-store experiences are reflected online. Integrating technologies such as AR into product merchandising and embracing demonstration through in-store events or online tutorials, are just some of the ways stakeholders are engaging consumers in the sector.


Anxiocalm boasts pure and natural ingredients and seems to be a great alternative for anti-anxiety medication for those that suffer from a mild case of the worries.  Once taken, the calming effect seemed to take action in no time at all and the effects of this fast-acting formula compare to the relief of chamomile and melatonin.  Taking Anxiocalm at night was especially helpful to feel a sense of well-being and relaxation while studying, assisted in late nights on deadline and helped with nervousness and difficulty falling and staying asleep.

Venom Good!

There is a new over-the-counter analgesic product called Venodol that will make your life and aches better. This awesome product is a topical roll-on cream created to supply long-lasting relief from chronic pain related (inflammation including joint pain, tendinitis, arthritis and body aches). After using Venodol, you’ll feel like new.

Venodol is very easy to use, is non-addictive and is scent free. Also, the product does not use other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as aspirin, naproxen sodium or ibuprofen, and does not have acetaminophen.

When we heard that the active component in Venodol is cobra venom, we immediately thought of the fierce venom devouring pain! Cobra venom contains many small proteins that apply analgesic and immune-modulating activity. Even though it is thought that these proteins control the immune system to control the body’s response to injury.

Apply affected areas 3 to 4 times every day, relief from chronic pain should be accomplished within two weeks. Venodol gets the job done.

Look in the Heart Mironova!

Before the month is over…heart health month is not just February…not just a Leap Year thing…it’s everyday!! Think MironovaEGT+!

  • Oxidative stress occurs when there is an imbalance between oxidants and antioxidants in the body. When this imbalance occurs, free radicals are released that alter DNA, proteins, and cholesterol and can trigger harmful reactions that affect cardiovascular health.
  • Oxidative stress is turns LDL cholesterol into its damaging form — oxidized LDL cholesterol. Over time, cumulative damage from oxidative stress of LDL cholesterol can contribute to heart and blood vessel disorders, including atherosclerosis, heart failure, heart attack, and stroke.
  • Nearly 74 million adults (31.7%) in the U.S. have high LDL-cholesterol, or “bad” cholesterol.
  • Ergothioneine is a super antioxidant that can protect against oxidative stress, and the body has a transport system specifically designed to deliver ergothioneine to areas of the body where stress is high and damage can occur.
  • For more than a century, scientists have known about the heart health benefits of ergothioneine but no one has been able to unlock the full potential of the  super antioxidant until now.
  • The human body does not produce ergothioneine and it can be difficult to obtain in your everyday diet.
  • Using breakthrough science, a daily nutritional supplement that contains the highest concentration of ergothioneine available today has been developed to help protect the heart from the damaging effects of oxidative stress.
