Hi friends! This week has been longgggg. & It’s only Tuesday. Anyone else feel like this week is just dragging?!
I wanted to share something a little different today! Let me know if you like these type of posts 🙂 Lately I’ve incorporated some new supplements into my everyday routine & I wanted to share my experience with them!
- Natural Calm; Natural Vitality Magnesium Anti-Stress Drink
So I found this drink by researching TMJ treatments. I struggle pretty badly with TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder) which is essentially major pain in my jaw, head, neck and back. It’s caused by a slipping disk where your ear and jaw connect. It also gets more irritated from clenching my jaw & grinding while I sleep which leads to really stiff and achy muscles. It’s seriously the worst thing ever… 😦 Anyway.. I was looking up some natural remedies and found out that Magnesium deficiency can really irritate TMJ. It then led me to this wonderful little drink & I’m so glad I ordered it. I was a bit skeptical because I hadn’t really tried any natural remedies yet for my TMJ. This comes in powder form & I like to mix it with 16 oz of cold water & some ice, however it says you can mix it with hot water as well. It tastes just like raspberry lemonade & I honestly feel amazing benefits when I drink it.
- Calms Nerves & Anxiety.
- Helps With Digestion
- Relieves Muscle Aches and Spasms. (This is a big one!!)
- Regulates Levels of Calcium, Potassium and Sodium.
- Prevents Migraine Headaches. (Also very helpful! I struggle with headaches almost everyday)
- Helps Prevent Osteoporosis (Healthy bones!)
I think this would have benefits even for people that don’t suffer from TMJ. I definitely feel more relaxed after drinking this. Not to mention I’m getting a dose of vitamins! I also sometimes throw in 250 mg of pill form Magnesium (below)
I also wanted to throw in a few of my favorite teas. I’ve been more into tea lately which makes me happy! It’s definitely an acquired taste… but my goal is to someday move completely from coffee to tea! (wish me luck..haha)
The Lipton Acai Dragonfruit Melon Green Tea is one of my favs. It’s super sweet by itself so I don’t need to add any sweetener to it. Everyone knows the amazing benefits of green tea! Add some acai & dragonfruit melon to it & it’s even better!
I also love the Biegelow I Love Lemon Tea. This one also tastes really good all by itself. I’ve been struggling with stomach aches lately and this really helps settle an upset stomach. Highly recommend!
The Yogi Skin Detox Tea is a good one if you like a strong tea flavor. I must admit it’s a little too floral tasting for me, but I know it has great benefits. I’ve tried it iced and added a sugar free crystal light lemonade packet to it, and it’s yummy!
No matter the flavor of tea, I always feel more calm & de-stressed when I sip on a hot tea in a cute mug ❤
