Dr Max Powers 15 day cleanse review


Dr Max Powers makes a 15 day cleanse, that I really wanted to try. So myth or fact?
Lets see if we can figure that out right now.
Here's what I discovered. The pills are not very small, but not large either. Capsules filled with brown powder, nothing too shocking or never before seen there...
What is inside of it?
What are senna leaves and what do they do?
Herbalists most often prescribe senna leaf tea as a laxative. Senna does have mild to serious side effects, so you should consult a physician before using it, particularly if you are on a medication or being treated for a medical condition. Common side effects of Senna Leaf include weight loss, and loose stools.

What is cascara sagrada and what does it do?

Spanish for “sacred bark”, the dried cascara sagrada bark of the buckthorn Rhamnus purshiana family, is used in medicine as a laxative. The cascara sagrada tree is cultivated in North America and Kenya. It is harvested mostly from wild trees in Oregon, Washington, and southern British Columbia. The bark is aged for a year so that the active principles become milder, as freshly dried bark produces too strong a laxative for safe short-term use. For relief of occasional constipation (irregularity). Cascara sagrada herb in many cases produces a bowel movement in 6 to 12 hours.

What is psyllium husk and what does it do?

For those suffering from (READ more ->constipation or diarrhea, appropriate daily dietary fiber intake can help improve these conditions. As psyllium husk travels through the human digestive tract, it absorbs water, but is not digested. This results in stool that is bulkier, but also softer, translating to fewer problems with passing stool. has long been recognized as an excellent means of getting more dietary fiber into a person’s diet due to its high fiber count in comparison to other grains.

What are the benefits of Flaxseed?

Although flaxseed contains all sorts of healthy components, it owes its healthy reputation primarily to three ingredients:
  • Omega-3 essential fatty acids, "good" fats that have been shown to have heart-healthy effects. Each tablespoon of ground flaxseed contains about 1.8 grams of plant omega-3s.
  • Lignans, which have both plant estrogen and antioxidant qualities. Flaxseed contains 75-800 times more lignans than other plant foods.
  • Fiber. Flaxseed contains both the soluble and insoluble types

What are the benefits of aloe vera plant?

It toughens up the immune system owing to the 23 peptides contained by the aloe vera, it accelerates and regulates the methabolism, purifies the human body from toxins, bringing about a feeling of calm. 


What are the benefits of L. Acidophilus?

The benefits of L acidophilus are still being discovered, though there are plenty of uses for this helpful bacterium. One of the most important benefits of L acidophilus is how it does battle with the unhealthy microorganisms that also reside in your intestinal tract. L acidophilus breakdowns nutrients for the body to use and creates by products such as lactic acid and hydrogen peroxide that create a hostile environment to the organisms that are unhealthy for you.

What are the benefits of Captex 300 oil?

Description:

Captex® 300 is also known as Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) and is manufactured by the esterification of fractionated fatty acids (mainly caprylic and capric) and glycerin. Captex 300 is prepared from food-grade, raw materials of vegetable origin. It is fully refined, bleached and deodorized and is miscible with most organic solvents including 95% ethanol.


I did notice that I seemed to be "going" more. But then, I also just started a new healthy Nutrisytem diet as well.
From what I can gather about the information, the product seems like it should work. While some of the ingredients do make you "go" all cleanse are supposed to make you go. It also does provide healthy benefits as well, such as the acidophilus and the fiber from the psyllium husk. I finished it off and haven't noticed a drop in weight. I did feel more energetic that usual, and didn't notice anything strange. It has no strange smells, or aftertaste, and is extremely affordable. Will it work for you?
Buy the 15 day cleanse from Dr Max Powers.
Be sure to check out his other products, like BURN, which contains caffeine and gives you mega energy. I haven't tried that one yet!
Combined with this 15 day cleanse, you will probably see some real progress.
My main advice, be sure to stay hydrated with any of these pills.
Good Luck!~

What did we think of this game?
Beware, highly addictive. young girls can be hard to shop for, because there are so many different brands and you never know what they will (or will not) like. This game is neat because any little girl, of any age would love this game. Especially a little girl who loves dolls, being girly and owns a Nintendo DS. This game features colorful & vivid images, and also is age appropriate for man different ages. Easy enough for my six year old, yet still appealing for an older child of age 12. Some of Giana's favorite features of the game are: You can upload pictures or yourself! She hasn't uploaded but one yet. I have to make her put the game down to go outside and play. She tries to take it with her. I used to let her, but it kinda defeats the purpose, right? Also, she and her friends end up arguing over who gets to play with it! She also loves playing little mini games, become a fashionista and get her character all dolled up! There is also a fun personality quiz to let you find out which Moxie Girlz character you are most like. Overall, I give this game an A+!!!


Main Moxie Girlz video game features:
  • Customization: Pick which Moxie Girlz character you want to be or upload pictures of yourself.
  • Variety of Modes: Art Play, Fashion Play, Games and more!
  • Personality Quizzes: Discover the Moxie Girlz character that resembles you!
  • Picture Fun: Use DSi functionality for picture taking and puzzle games – mix and match! (this looks cool, but we have the DS, so we were unable to do this part)
  • Positive Message: All modes and gameplay focus on the positive Moxie Girlz message– Be true! Be you!™

Softlips Seasonal favorites GIVEAWAY! 12/7 ***Closed!!!**

***CLOSED!!!**
I have reviewed Softlips before! It's funny because I do prefer wand liquids to sticks. But Softlips smells so darn yummy, it almost seems to tide over my sweet tooth cravings! Softlips has a few new treats I want to let you know about!
The  Softlips winter flavors are:

  • Winter Mint 
  • Sugar Cookie 
  • Sugar & Spice 
  • Sugar Plum Berry

I was sent two of each flavor and they came in these cute little tiny drawstring mesh bags! 4 little purple see through drawstring mesh bags, each containing two Softlips of each new flavor! The flavors are very light, and the stick is not heavy., This is one of the reasons I will use this stick over others. I don't like the "waxy feel" that some balms have.  I am grateful to have these little stocking stuffers for Christmas, which is so very soon!






Plus, watch the new Softlips. “So Merry. So You.” video, as Jenn Falik, beauty & style expert, shows how easy it is to be "so thoughtful," and give the gift of beauty this holiday season!  www.youtube.com/ilovesoftlips  (the tips are highlighted below for you to read, too!)Softlips availability: Now throughout the holiday/winter season, there will be select dual-packs (Winter Mint/Vanilla, Sugar Cookie/Raspberry, and Sugar Cookie/Cherry) available at stores such as Walmart, Target, and Rite Aid for $3.99. There is also a Winter 5-Pack that’s available exclusively in the Softlips online store, Softlips.com that offers all four winter flavors and a bonus flavor of Mint with a Hint of Vanilla.

Pillow Pets for Nintendo DS (review)




Pillow Pets for Nintendo DS is a cute kid's game based on the line of children's plush pillows that transform into cuddly friends. In the game you jump, buzz, fly, and explore Dreamland, the imaginary world where the pillow pets live. You can give your pillow pets more personality by customizing them with hats, glasses, shoes, and more! There are up to 40 accessories to unlock.




I adored this little game. I also adore the brand Pillow Pets. My daughter has the purple Unicorn Pillow Pet! I totally recommend this game if you have younger children, and if your kids like pillow pets or own one, this makes a very nice addition to your game collection, or pillow pet collection. Either way! It is a lot of fun and the graphics are so cute and brightly colored. My daughter loved dressing up her pillow pet character (she is a big fan of dress up). The game itself was not too hard for her to play by herself. I only had to help her out once. She is six years old. In fact- she wouldn't put it down!


( Please also see my review of the new Moxie Girls DS game review here. )


When your favorite pal goes missing, you must set out on a journey to bring them home again. You will venture into magical lands such as the Fantasy Woods, Rainbow Valley, and Slumber Land Castle. Along the way you will meet friends and collect tokens and rewards. You can meet and collect 16 well known pillow pet's characters including farm critters, sea creatures, and jungle animals.This is sure to be a great game for both boys and girls.

The game retails for around $20 and can be purchased wherever video games are sold.
This game would make a wonderful holiday present for your younger Pillow Pet or DS fan!

Party Beans brings you customization on party favors!





I received a $25 gift certificate to review Party Beans customizer and the products you can make with it.


About the customizer - it's so easy to order, it literally took me 10 minutes! I used some of their own images, but you can choose yours to upload if you like. They have all sorts of shapes and sizes of metal tins, which actually makes them eco-friendly, because you would keep the tin to re-use for mints, vitamins, pills, or other small things. In my case I ordered a tiny glass jar of M&Ms. I was a little disappointed, some of them were broken. I am sure that would be from shipping, perhaps they weren't packed tight enough and settled? Or perhaps wasn't enough padding in the packaging. There weren't many broken M&M's though, so it was OK. Plus- ordering was a breeze though, and I really liked the fact that there are no minimums. Their advice to you? Be sure to keep in mind the size of the items you are purchasing when you are choosing your graphics. For example, do not put a very text heavy graphic on something like the breath strips.  It won't come out well and they will actually contact you to change it because they want you to be happy with the products that you receive.  Also, Please be sure to use high resolution graphics in order to ensure that you get the crispest printing possible. Again, if a photo is not high enough resolution, they will contact you about changing it.

Here are a few of the things they offer!
1. wedding favors
2. party favors
4. bridal shower favors
5. birthday favors
7. custom favors 
8. customized favors
9. personalized favors
10. Graduation favors




So, in conclusion.. 




  • Create personalized gifts and themed party favors!
  • starting at just $1.99
  • no minimums
  • ships next day
  • KOSHER (OU) certified
  • Upload photos, add text
  • Featuring Jelly Belly &  M&Ms
  • Their Facebook page can be found at:  http://www.facebook.com/partybeansfavors

The holiday season is a time of giving, and we want to give you an opportunity to do just that.Primrose Schools® is proud to announce that they are teaming up with Feeding America in an effort to help those in need. Founded in 1982, Primrose Schools has been giving back to its local communities for almost 29 years.

Primrose Schools is announcing the return of their 2nd annual Cans for Fans virtual food drive. Now through December 31, Primrose Schools will donate one can of food for every new "like" they receive on their Facebook page. Not only that, they will donate two cans of food every time a fan "shares" the Cans for Fans status post. You have nothing to lose, but those in need have so much to gain!
