Keep Calm Stay Fresh

Ever been confined at crowded place? For example in the carriage of a jam-packed subway train especially on a hot, summer day.

Automatically the brain brave ourselves for the assault of … body odors!

It is not the most pleasant thought. However, somehow our brain reminds us of those previous nasty experiences with body odor. Not only we want to avoid being ‘assaulted’ with the unpleasant odors, we can even be self-conscious. What if we are the one that emits this unpleasantness?! Did I skip bath this morning? Did I change to a clean pair of undershirt? And on, and on.

What if we can just . . .

KEEP CALM AND STAY FRESH

Won’t that be great!

Yes, indeed.

FAQs


What is the difference between deodorant and an antiperspirant?
Deodorant and antiperspirants tackle the effects of apocrine sweat glands. Antiperspirants use chemicals — like aluminum – to stop sweat, while deodorant works to contain odor.

Does sweat cause body odor?
Sweat itself does not cause body odor. The body’s apocrine sweat glands in the skin, mostly in the armpit locale, “excrete fats and proteins which feed bacteria and cause body odor.”1

I have only ever used antiperspirants. How do I make an easy transition using the Shopping Annuity Brand Premium Deodorant?
If you are making the complete transition from an antiperspirant (which is great!), it may be helpful for some to try our Premium Deodorant before the weather gets hot so you can ease into it. Also, note that it may take your body up to a few weeks to regulate its sweat production – your body is detoxing the antiperspirant in your skin.

I have sensitive skin. Is this safe for me to use?
Yes, Shopping Annuity Brand Premium Deodorant is safe for all skin types.

Is this deodorant for both men and women?
Yes, Shopping Annuity Premium Deodorant is gender neutral with a fresh, scent that does not lean towards a traditional male or feminine fragrance.

Can children use this deodorant?
Body odor is common in young children and teenagers, especially during puberty. Practicing good hygiene is a great first step. As with anything you purchase for your family, deciding whether to let your child use this deodorant is a personal choice based on what each parent feels is best for their child’s health and wellness.

What is the texture of Shopping Annuity Brand Premium Deodorant?
Our deodorant has a smooth, white texture that glides onto your skin effortlessly.

Is Shopping Annuity Brand Premium Deodorant cruelty-free?
Yes, this product has not been tested on animals.

Sure! That will be SUPER!

Hence it’s really exciting when my associated online business launched a series of these everyday essentials in the recent International Convention.

Right at the current moment (Aug 2018),  these premium quality products are only available to business owners and not yet launched to the public. There will therefore not be associated links to the e-Commerce page for these respective products. When they are available, this page will be updated!

Let’s explore!

SHOPPING ANNUITY BRANDED TOOTH PASTE

 

Brushing your teeth is an essential part of healthy oral hygiene routines. We have to do it every day, at least twice a day. As often as you use toothpaste, do you know what is actually going into your mouth?

If you are looking to add a premium, natural product to your household for you and your family’s oral health, Shopping Annuity’s Premium Natural Toothpaste is a great solution to help clean your teeth, freshen your breath and whiten your teeth, with gentle ingredients.

Shopping Annuity’s Premium Natural Toothpaste’s whitening and brightening power is supported by bromelain and papain. Our toothpaste contains these two natural proteolytic enzymes that have been shown to help whiten teeth2. Natural calcium carbonate, a commonly used polishing agent, is also used to support teeth whitening.1

Another thing to consider is that many natural toothpastes are known to put taste on the back burner. Shopping Annuity Premium Natural Toothpaste contains stevia, xylitol, and a blend of natural flavors to create a fresh, minty taste while you clean your teeth.

Our toothpaste contains no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners. Just ingredients that gently clean and whiten your pearly whites.

Shopping Annuity Brand Hand Sanitizer – (Pack of 6)

Why Choose Shopping Annuity Hand Sanitizer?


Think about what you do in a normal day.

Now, think about everything you touch and come into contact with along the way. Are you feeling confident about how clean your hands are?

Five common ways to spread germs include1:
1. Nose, mouth, or eyes > hands > others
2. Hands > food
3. Food > hands > food
4. Infected child > hands to other children

Shopping Annuity Brand Organic Foaming Hand Soap – Sage Lime (8 fl oz / 236 ml)

Why Choose Shopping Annuity Organic Foaming Hand Soap?


Shopping Annuity® Organic Foaming Hand Soap is a plant-based hand soap that both cleans and moisturizes. This USDA certified soap is available in a Sage Lime scent. Tough on germs, yet gentle on your skin – you’ll love using Shopping Annuity® Organic Foaming Hand Soap when the call for clean hands arises.

A University of Michigan study found that out of 3,749 people, about 95% did not adequately wash their hands (see CDC recommendation) long enough to kill germs.1 The sample group, of which 10% did not wash their hands at all1, was observed in public restrooms.

Think about this scenario in your own life. How long are you washing your hands after using the restroom? How often are you washing your hands? How thoroughly are you washing your hands?

Germs don’t just breed in the restroom though. Whether it’s after a trip to the toilet, handling raw meat, coughing into your hand, or grabbing handles while standing on public transit, the risk of germ spread rises. Handwashing is one of the most important steps to avoid spreading germs and getting sick.2

Add Shopping Annuity® Organic Foaming Soap to your home or office as a part of your health and hygiene routine!

Introducing Probiotics 10

Before diving straight into the ‘bolts and nuts’ about Probiotics 10, it is best to give a little background about probiotics and how it helps our digestive health and the importance of supplementation.

The following is extracted from : blog.unfranchise.com/blog/probiotics-beginners-guide

Did you know that the number of bacteria in your body outnumbers your body’s cells 10 to 1? It’s true, and most of them reside in your gut. There’s no reason to worry – most bacteria are harmless, and having the right bacteria can even help! This leads us to the topic at hand, probiotics. While this buzzword has been around for a while, what are these tiny-but-mighty organisms and what do they really do?

What Are Probiotics?

Often there is confusion surrounding what a probiotic is, exactly. Simply put, they are live and naturally occurring microorganisms, bacteria, or yeasts, that support overall health. These microorganisms come in a variety of strains that can colonize the gut and thereby work to help maintain optimal bacterial balance.While these strains can and do act similarly at times, each has a slightly different purpose or use. Multiple strains, taken together, is often a preferred and effective way to support the needs of most individuals! There are a number of foods or supplements that contain these friendly bacteria and are supposed to help colonize our guts with health-boosting microorganisms, and their importance can not be overstated.

 

The History of Probiotics:

Starting in ancient Egypt, physicians used probiotics in the forms of fermented or soured foods for specific health-related conditions.  Think of popular foods such as kombucha, kimchi, or kefir!  At that time they did not know how or why these foods worked, they just knew that they did!  Thanks to years of scientific research, we now know that these foods were beneficial due to the naturally occurring bacteria that multiplied and fermented the food.

Dr. Eli Metchnikoff was the first to identify probiotics and their support of overall health. He proposed that by consuming these beneficial microorganisms, one could improve health.  He named these organisms “probiotics” which means ‘for life’ in Latin.  Dr Metchnikoff was a Russian biologist, zoologist, and protozoologist who did significant pioneering research into the immune system. His research was so significant that in 1908 he received a Nobel Prize for his work.

Types of Probiotics:

There are dozens of different probiotic bacteria, and the most common groups include Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium.  However, there are many different species within each group and each has many strains. It is important to keep in mind that this is a new and rapidly expanding area of research, but the most commonly used probiotics on the market today include the following:

Bifidobacterium

Bifidobacterium bacteria are probiotics that can naturally reside in the mouth, digestive system, and vagina. There have been at least 52 different species of bifidobacterium identified to date. These bacteria are classified as anaerobes. This means that they do not need oxygen to grow or live, though this classification is not completely correct for all bifidobacterium.  

Bacillus

Bacillus bacteria can be found throughout the natural world including in the soil and water. These bacteria, unlike bifidobacterium, can be aerobes, meaning that they need oxygen to live, or they can be facultative anaerobes, which means they can live with or without oxygen. Bacillus bacteria can form spores, or more precisely spore-like forms that protect the bacteria and allow them to survive for extended periods in a dormant state. Only two species of this particular bacterium are particularly good for use in supplementation:

  • Bacillus coagulans
  • Bacillus subtilis

Lactobacillus

Lactobacillus bacteria are probably the most well known of the groups of probiotics. There have been approximately 180 different species of lactobacillus identified to date. These bacteria are non-spore forming bacteria that can that naturally reside in the digestive, urinary and genital systems.  Lactobacillus are the bacterium that are often associated with fermented foods such as yogurt, kefir and sauerkraut.

What Do Probiotics Do?

Now that you’ve got the 101 on what these important organisms are, we can talk about what they do for your health + wellness! In the case of probiotics, there is a symbiotic relationship which means one organism provides help for the other.  In this case, humans provide food (nutrition) and shelter for the microflora while the bacteria support the health of the human host. But, how?

 

Probiotics and Gut Health

The complex community of microorganisms in your gut is called the microflora.  Your microflora actually contains hundreds of different types of microorganisms, and this includes bacteria, yeasts, and viruses! Most of this microflora is found in the colon and performs many functions that are important for health. Your body needs this good bacteria to absorb undigested starches, fiber, and sugars in foods. Having that healthy balance allows your digestive system to efficiently convert these carbohydrates into valuable nutrients and energy!

Additionally, as the microflora metabolize nutrition for themselves, they produce B vitamins, vitamin K, free fatty acids, digestive enzymes, natural amino acids, all of which the human host uses.

Probiotics and the Immune System

When you think about your immune system, where do you picture it? Most have no idea where to begin since it isn’t confined to one organ in particular. Instead, most of your immune system resides in your gastrointestinal tract! It’s this location that means what happens in your gut influences your immune function.

When your gut and microflora are healthy, your immune system has a large, thriving population of beneficial probiotics supporting those immune system receptor cells in your gut. These can help form a protective barrier within your colon and intestines and even help to train your immune system to respond in a normal way to antigens! Supporting a healthy presence of probiotics in your gut is an important step in supporting your health and well being.

Supplementing with Probiotics

Probiotics are more popular than ever before, and there is an ever-growing volume of research to support the use of probiotics for adults and children for a myriad of health and wellness needs. While there are dozens of supplements on the market, the all-new Probiotics-10 is a great way to ensure you’re providing your body with the right balance of “good” and “bad” bacteria!

This hot new product offers 10 billion CFUs from 10 of the most-studied and well-supported probiotic strains, utilizing the unique benefits of each to synergistically support numerous areas of health while also defending against the effects of stomach acid to ensure the highest percentage of CFUs reach their destination viable + alive!

 

PROBIOTICS-10

WHY PROBIOTICS-10 STANDS OUT:

Diversity of strains and total bacteria count are key elements in a powerful probiotic.

While many products on the market deliver a high total probiotic count, some only contain one or two bacterial strains. In contrast, Probiotics-10 provides 10 carefully selected bacterial strains, each of which plays a unique role to help your body maintain bacterial balance to support optimal digestive health.*

Other probiotics products may easily become less viable due to their manufacturing process and reduced shelf life.

By the time the product is used, it may be significantly less effective. Probiotics-10 features LiveBac® and BIO-tract®, patented delivery technologies that help keep probiotics alive during the manufacturing and digestive processes, thus maximizing its effectiveness.*

There are hundreds of different bacteria present in the digestive tract called microflora.

Some of these bacteria are beneficial and support the body in maintaining healthy digestive function. Maintaining a healthy balance of “good” bacteria and “bad” bacteria supports your
digestive and immune health. Probiotics-10 can be a great option for helping you maintain
that balance and supporting overall health!*
