I began my own health journey a few years ago and quickly took a wrong turn. Like many young women, I thought under-eating and over-exercising were the path to health. Boy, was I wrong! After a couple years, my health had gotten progressively worse. I became an exhausted young mom with severe acne, PMS and mood swings that could intimidate a seasoned combat veteran. I figured this was no way to live and began to research nutrition, natural supplements, and healthy living. Within a few months, I was a different person. Today I enjoy excellent health, sleep like a baby and my moods are fantastic.

My Reviews

The first scrub I LOVE.

Posted by thenourishedlife on Oct 20, 2012

I've been looking for a great facial scrub for a LONG time. I've tried everything from typical drugstore brands to all natural/organic brands... I never found something worth purchasing twice. Many were ineffective and could hardly be described as "scrubs," while others broke out my sensitive skin (exactly the opposite of the effect I'm looking for!). I've been using baking soda, which is inexpensive, but messy and inconvenient at times. After trying this Acure scrub, I can't believe how much I love it! First of all, it does the job (no sparse "microbeads" that don't actually exfoliate). My skin feels velvety smooth after and looks fantastic, and you really only have to use it three times a week as per the instructions. My skin tone is much more even, and I've only used it a few times. I notice my makeup looks much more flawless than it did before (but, hey, with how great my skin looks, I might be able to use less makeup now!). Plus, you only have to use a little bit of product, which makes the higher price tag worth it for these results.

Pregnenolone is the youth hormone--even for the young!

Posted by thenourishedlife on Oct 25, 2012

I can't go without my pregnenolone! This 50 mg per day is the perfect dose for me. Even at 26, I've experienced signs of hormonal imbalance like fatigue, low moods, and skin that doesn't bounce back like it used to. This pregnenolone is no magic pill, of course, but all I know is 1) my PMS always improves when I'm on pregnenolone and 2) the skin around my eyes feels much firmer when I take it. I rarely experience such tangible results with supplements, so this one is definitely staying in my medicine cabinet!

Very high quality magnesium glycinate.

Posted by thenourishedlife on Nov 07, 2012

Most magnesium supplements use magnesium oxide (which isn't absorbed well and can cause diarrhea even in small doses) or magnesium citrate (which can be very irritating to the digestive system). That's why I prefer this chelated magnesium, which is magnesium glycinate. This form of magnesium is gentle on the digestive system, easily absorbed, and it's bound to glycine, which is a stress-relieving, anti-inflammatory amino acid. At 200 mg per capsule, it's the perfect dose to take 1-3 times daily, which should raise magnesium to optimal levels. A+++

A natural solution for cats and ear mites.

Posted by thenourishedlife on Nov 06, 2012

Our family includes a few cuddly felines who spend time outdoors, and this garlic oil with mullein is exactly what I need to keep away ear mites. The garlic and mullein not only prevent mite infections, but also prevent bacterial infections as well. Considering ear infections can lead to far more serious respiratory infections in cats, this oil is a vital part of keeping my cats healthy!

A solid 3 star product.

Posted by thenourishedlife on Nov 28, 2012

I've tried several different zinc products over the years to help with my adult acne. This product is mildly helpful, and doesn't upset my stomach if I take it with a meal. However, it doesn't really compare to Jarrow Formula Zinc Balance, which I have found immensely helpful in clearing my skin. I will definitely switch back to Zinc Balance.

5 stars for price and performance, 1 star for odor.

Posted by thenourishedlife on Nov 07, 2012

I really wanted to like this progesterone. Progesterone is a must for me during the last two weeks of my cycle. It keeps PMS at bay and helps clear up the acne breakouts I tend to get at that time. I was using Life-Flo brand, which worked well but was a little expensive for me. So I tried NOW Foods brand progesterone cream. It rivals Life-Flo in performance, but the smell of NOW progesterone is very off-putting. I like to use progesterone cream at night because it helps me sleep, but the smell of this product makes it a husband-repellant! I will be switching back to Life-Flo because of the odor issue.

Outstanding value for vitamin A and D!

Posted by thenourishedlife on Nov 06, 2012

I've found this natural A and D softgel to be an hugely important part of my anti-acne regimen. These little pills pack a powerful punch, and when combined with a quality zinc/copper supplement, have cleared up my adult acne almost completely. Of course, vitamin A and D also support hormonal health and thyroid balance, so it's a good daily supplement. But its skin clearing benefits are the icing on the cake for me! This huge bottle lasts me for months, and is definitely worth the price.

So many uses!

Posted by thenourishedlife on May 11, 2012

I love orange oil, and this brand smells like pure, freshly peeled oranges. I use this in homemade cleaners and body scrubs, and I also sprinkle a few drops in my bottles of lotion and facial toners. Smells fantastic!

Works well, but not quite the holy grail moisturizer for me.

Posted by thenourishedlife on Nov 28, 2012

I love the smell and feel of this serum. I do feel it brightens my complexion and helps fade old acne marks a little. However, it doesn't provide much moisture, so I have to use additional product to moisturize my skin. Considering the price of this product, I was hoping it would hold up as a moisturizer as well. Maybe in the summertime, but not in the dry winter months. I'm not quite sure it's worth the price.

Call me Ginger!

Posted by thenourishedlife on Dec 06, 2012

This is way better than store bought ginger. It has a more well-rounded aroma and taste, warm and spicy. This big bag is a wonderful bargain for me, because I use ginger in detox baths (about 1/4 cup in the bathwater). It's a great way to cut inflammation and get your circulation going. It does wonders for my skin!

Great NATURAL vitamin A supplements.

Posted by thenourishedlife on Nov 06, 2012

This is one of my top vitamin A supplements. Synthetic forms of vitamin A are a big concern to me, so I prefer my vitamin A supplements to use a natural source like fish oil. This is a decent dosage that can be regulated easily based on your individual needs. I prefer a vitamin A and D combination with a higher dose (needed to clear up my adult acne), but for a lower dose this product is top notch.

One step closer to eradicating chemical air fresheners!

Posted by thenourishedlife on Nov 05, 2012

This cinnamon oil is a godsend. I absolutely detest traditional air freshening products. They reek of chemicals and give me migraines. Essential oils are my go-to product for making my home smell fresh and beautiful, and cinnamon oil is perfect for bringing to mind winter evenings spent curled up by a warm fire, sipping fresh apple cider. Mmm...
