HUM Nutrition

I am not one to share my passion for a specific product, unless I find myself truly in LOVE with not only the product, but the company. I was so excited to receive my new HUM order yesterday, that I felt it was time to share my passion for HUM Nutrition, on Growing Self!  img_1855

I have been using vitamins and supplements from HUM Nutrition for about a year, and I have never been disappointed. I tried to narrow down my favorites and it was almost impossible!  But, I can’t imagine my life without these 4 products…

Moody Bird is formulated with dong quail root and chaste berry to help maintain hormonal balance.  Think of it as your best friend during PMS or menopause! Let’s just say that I have noticed a POSITIVE difference during the more “challenging” times of the month! (My family can vouch for that, too!)

Arctic Repair assists in rejuvenating my 46-year-old skin!  It helps with those fine lines, too!  Repair away, my beauty sidekick!

Wing Man was one of the first products I tried from HUM Nutrition, due to struggling with dark circles.   Within 2 months, I noticed a significant improvement, thanks to the silymarin extracted from the milk thistle seed.  Not only does it help your dark circles, but is a great liver detox, too!

OMG is packed full of omega-3 fatty acids, for not only beautiful skin tone, but overall heart and body health!

I am passionate about health and wellness.  Hum Nutrition has been a beautiful addition to my daily regimen.  Keep in mind, these are just a few of my favorites!  Check out their website for the full collection!

I might not have a lot of time to pamper myself, so I think of HUM as my daily spa treatment!

Soul Organics

I am always elated to discover new health and wellness products to add to my morning smoothies. My goal is for my smoothies to be the best breakfast powerhouse as possible!  While researching spirulina, the ultimate green super food that I was excited to add to my health and wellness regiment, I discovered the company, Soul Organics.  After learning about their philosophy and products, I knew this was a company I wanted to support.  Here are some tidbits about Soul Organics

I am just as impressed with the organic maca powder as I am the organic spirulina!  I love the energy boost I receive from adding maca to my smoothies!  Here is the link, if you are having trouble finding organic maca in your local market: Maca Powder, Organic – Gelatinized from Raw for Enhanced Absorption

Breakfast in a Cup!

Breakfast has always been difficult for me. Getting up in the morning and chewing food just never worked. But, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It jump-starts the metabolism and prevents those afternoon energy dips that make me want to curl up with my favorite green blanket and hibernate. Eating breakfast not only protects my family members from potential crankiness, but protects myself from the notorious afternoon salty/sweet attack. For all of these reasons, I was determined to find a breakfast source that I could easily stomach, within the first hour of waking up. About 5 years ago, I discovered the perfect answer to my lifelong dilemma… The Smoothie! Continue reading “Breakfast in a Cup!”
