It is a new week which means another highlighted ingredient:
Have you ever found your legs, feet, hands, etc. falling asleep or getting numb/tingly, especially after a workout?? Well, look no further! This powder helps maintain blood circulation in the peripheral areas of the body such as legs, hands, and feet.
It also stimulates the metabolism of fats and acts as an anti-oxidant. (Take that, fats!!)
Gingko leaf tea was also used to enhance a clear mind and improve the power of concentration. (Where has this been during nursing school?!)
It is the oldest living species of plant on the earth, dating backmore than 225 million years!!
It is an approved therapy for the treatment of memory loss in conditions such as Alzheimer's, ringing in the ears, and dizziness.
Wow! Who knew?! Do any of you take gingko powder or know that it's in your multi-vitamin/protein shakes??
Ok so as excited as I am about this, I am also very nervous to announce that today is MY FIRST GIVEAWAY!!
That's right bloggers! I am giving away what I am calling my "Maryland Health Basket." In it includes:
- A reusable Maryland bag (I use these when I grocery shop- saves on paper and plastic!)
- A longsleeve University of Maryland tshirt! (My whole family went there so it's where my heart is- Go Terps!)
- A box of Mango Black Tea and a jar of Mango butter from Trader Joes! (I love drinking hot tea before I go to bed and the Mango butter I love to put on whole wheat toast as a snack or even breakfast with some Chobani!)
- A box of Old Bay seasoning! (A true Maryland staple! Mix it with some steamed shrimp or as a spicy marinade for chicken! Yum!)
- 2 Larabars!
- 2 kinds of veggies for your garden! (And some of my favorite summer veggies: squash and snow peas!)
