Liquid Stevia

100% natural liquid stevia sweetener, 3 flavors, French Vanilla, Dark Chocolate, and Unflavored. Stevia is a herb, it has zero calories, and is 300 times sweeter than sugar. So you only need a couple drops. A small bottle like this lasts me for a long time even though I use it daily. The first bottle I had lasted for close to a year. I use stevia drops in my drinks, tea, coffee, smoothies and a delicious lime chia drink that I make. I also use it when I make raw chocolate treats, and recently tried it in my gluten free peanut butter cookies with great results. See all three stevia flavors here Read more »

Dark Leafy Greens

Dark Leafy Greens Magnesium, it’s been called the ‘miracle mineral’ and it’s necessary for over 325 essential bodily functions, yet most people don’t get a enough on a daily basis. To put it another way, if you don’t have sufficient magnesium your body won’t be able to carry out over 325 important tasks properly. David Wolfe has said that magnesium is the #1 mineral deficiency. According to a National Academy of Sciences report 80% of American men and 70% of American women don’t get the RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) of magnesium from their diet and whatever supplements they take.

I want to tell you about these cool glass tea infusers that are on special for an unbelievable price of $2.95 right now. I’m not sure how long they will be at this price, but you can get one here. The glass tea infuser is beautiful and very well made. It normally sells for $8.95 at iHerb because they have such low prices but the standard retail price is $14.95. With this special offer you get it for only $2.95 (one per customer), and it’s well worth it!

Diet Can Affect Aggression & Temperament In Dogs

American Pit Bull Terrier Pup

Myths About Aggression In Dog Breeds The proverbial “don’t judge a book by its cover” is difficult to apply to certain dog breeds because of statistics and news media coverage of certain types.

And despite the above mentioned incidents, the most aggressive dogs by nature are the ones you’d least expect. Read more »
