get-attachment (9)Kefir, now here is a drink that will do your body good.

Kefir is something like a liquid yogurt but not really.  Kefir is a cultured milk product with a slight tart taste.  Now don’t let the tart taste cause you not to try Kefir.


I always add bananas, strawberries, blueberries, even blackberries to sweeten this amazingly healthy drink.get-attachment (10)get-attachment (8)

Pour and I enjoy.  get-attachment (4)

Kefir   is high in protein, calcium and vitamin D.

Each cup of Kefir contains 12 live and active cultures and 7 to 10 billion beneficial probiotic strains.  Probiotics are healthy, beneficial microorganisms such as bacteria or yeast found in the digestive tract.  This  helps keep your pipes from clogging.

Kefir is rich in Vitamin B12, B1, and Vitamin K and did I mention calcium…your bones will be happy when you Kefir!

Vitacost Advanced Collagen – For Hair and Skin

January 29, 2015 · Leave a Comment

Hair on my head is very important to me.  I will assume it is important to a lot of us.  It was very upsetting to me when I began to notice that my hair was falling out by what seemed to be the 100’s.

I know we lose hair every day. They say we should lose about 50 strands of hair daily, but I really think I was starting to lose at least 50+ hairs daily.  Every shower I took showed how much hair was falling out.

Then I heard this doctor talk about Collagen. Collagen is a type of protein that helps to provide our skin with strength, smoothness, elasticity and resilience.  And it helps keep hair on your head.

This doctor said that as we age we  begin to lose this important protein (collagen).  Hence we begin to show the signs of aging, wrinkles, sagging skin, and  hair lose.  The good news is we can replace this collagen back into our bodies.  We can consume it in foods or we can drink it.  So off I went to buy this  Collagen. get-attachment (3)

It is easy to take.  Just one scoop of this dietary supplement into a glass of water, stir till all the powder is dissolved.  The trick is you need to drink it on an empty stomach.   get-attachment (2) Every day this drink gets made.  Gulp, gulp, gulp down I drink.  Have been taking this for quite some time now.  Do I see a difference in my hair and skin?  Yes, I do.  I see that my hair has stopped falling out, like it was hair rain, and I think I see new hair growing.

Collagen!  The drink that puts hair on your head and life back to your skin.
