An Award and a Giveaway!

I’m so excited to receive the Healing Hearts Awards, hosted by Nature Made and nominated by Maggie (who is one of the original 5 winners).

Nature Path launched “Healing Hearts Club” this month. They’ve found five bloggers who play a major role in educating their readers about overall health, including maintaining a healthy heart. We’re offering this award to these bloggers because they exemplify everything that it means to not only teach healthy ways of living, but also do so in a fun and uplifting way. Each of these bloggers will receive a heart healthy package to use for themselves, as well as one to give away.

I am so honored!!! Thank you Maggie and Nature Made! 😀


As award winner, I got this AMAZING package!!!!


Heart Healthy package includes a 6 month supply of our CholestOff, CoQ10, and Fish Oil supplements as well as an aluminum water bottle, yoga mat and carrying bag.



What is it? – A combination of plant sterols and stanols, which have been shown to help lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol levels when used in conjunction with proper diet and exercise.

What are the benefits? – CholestOff has been shown to lower cholesterol naturally and may help to prevent heart disease.

How does it work?  – The active ingredients in CholestOff have been shown to reduce cholesterol levels in the body by blocking the absorption of dietary cholesterol sources


Fish Oil

What is it? – Omega 3 – Fatty acids found in fish oil. Omega – 3 fatty acids have been shown to have cardio-protective benefits.

What are the benefits? – Fish oil may reduce the risk of heart disease later in life. In addition, omega-3 fatty acids have shown the potential to help maintain triglyceride levels already in the normal range.

How does it work? – The two primary omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). These fatty acids can be beneficial to heart health when added to a nutritional diet.



What is it? – Coenzyme Q10 – A compound that is involved in energy production and can support heart muscle strength.

What are the benefits? – CoQ10 is also a powerful antioxidant, which works in conjunction with Vitamin E to help the body resist free radical damage.

How does it work? –CoQ10 is an electron carrier in the mitochondria, or energy-producing part of the cell. Therefore, CoQ10 is necessary for energy production in the body.



This is a great package for my parents and uncles. I’m sure they’ll love it!!! 😀

And now, the best part. One of You can win this package TOO!!! 😀
