Comments Off on Looking for a SPECIFIC Product Deal? Check with Us!
I had a great conversation with some folks today, and they brought my attention to an item that they were looking for, and needed to get a good deal on it. I told them I’d search out some deals and post them on the site. So, it occurs to me that you may also be looking for certain deals, but all the searching online isn’t getting you what you need.
Of course we can’t find discounts and coupon codes for absolutely everything since not all companies offer them. However, we do have affiliate accounts with hundreds of companies in nearly every category you could need. If you’re looking for a certain deal in a product category, and you aren’t finding it here, drop a line in the comment box and let us know what you need, and if we can locate a deal, we’ll post it in our coupon section for you!
And that brings me to a tip for searching the site. You can use the search function at the top right hand of the page (see the screenshot below), and search by product name (e.g. Lost Empire Herbs Pine Pollen, PianoForAll – which is a great online piano course, Cake Stackers – which is a fabulous cake-support system, Livfree Dental Gel – which btw used to be known as Livionex – TrueFit Grass-Fed Protein, Moissanite engagement rings), or the store name (e.g. Lost Empire Herbs, Amazon, Direct Vapor, Kobelli – the jeweler known for their moissanite gems, etc.).
Or, if you want to see what is available in different categories, you can search that as well! It’s easy to find our categories, and you’ll likely find numerous products cross-categorized. For example, if you were looking for a stand up desk (e.g. VersaDesk or VariDesk), you might check the “office supplies” category, or “ergonomic” category. If you are looking for a certain tent or backpack you might check the “camping” or “hiking” categories. We do our best to cross-categorize as much as possible. Skin care products might be found in “anti-aging skin care,” “rosacea,” “beauty,” “cosmetics,” or “skin care.”
In the next screenshot, you’ll see where to find our categories section. Simply hover your mouse over the “Stores” tab at the top of the page, and then when you see “Categories” in the drop-down menu, click on that, and all the various categories from A-Z will appear below. From there, click any of the categories of interest.
We are always looking for new products to feature on the site, and you’ll also find product reviews here, especially when we find items that we really love! We’ve got great relationships with a lot of merchants as well, so once in a while you’ll see us feature specific merchants in interviews and reviews so that you can get to know them as well!
For example, we had a great opportunity to try out some delicious organic meal delivery plans, and between Martin and I, we came up with some great reviews – for example, check out these videos from when I purchased a few meals from Personal Chef to Go – just below!

Comments Off on Amazing FiberFix Fixes Everything
Nutritionists tell everyone to eat enough fiber, but you didn’t know DIY experts were into the fiber trend, did you? This is not an edible fiber, though, and not the sort you find in a grocery store. We are talking about FiberFix and this review will reveal why every household needs some in their lives.
Caveat for Shoppers
Just a word of caution before we get too deeply into this review. There is a good chance that once you read the following article, you will want to rush out and buy some; not a bad idea. I recommend you treat this stuff with the sort of caution reserved for crazy glue and cigarette lighters. Children and FiberFix do not mix unless you really want them to stay put somewhere. When it hardens, no parent would want to be trying to get this material off of skin, trying to rip it from furniture, or attempting to unwrap it from around the cat. Read further and you will see what I mean.
First, a Little Bit of Background
FiberFix comes from a US team of engineers and innovators including Spencer Quinn. He was looking for materials that would work like medical tape but would be moisture proof and bond fully. This would involve finding a resin to make their tape many times stronger than duct tape. The team launched their product, took it to Shark Tank, and it became a huge hit. Investment money took them to the next level and they went from selling in over a thousand stores to getting their product into more than 30,000 locations.
This tape really is far more durable than duct tape; it has been subjected to testing under university conditions and the veracity of Quinn’s claims that it is “100 times stronger than duct tape” are revealed to be an understatement every time someone finds a new way to use it. Not every surface is suitable, especially flat surfaces, and shiny ones will have to be roughened first, but try everything from tools to the chassis of your car and see what Quinn’s project is capable of. Always wear gloves first, though; if the resin gets on your skin it has to be scrubbed off with an abrasive surface or you can wait for nature to have its way and for dead cells to take FiberFix with it.
Answers to Questions
One of the best resources for information is the FAQ section from the FiberFix website. Here you will find out how it works by exploring customer’s most common questions. For example, any adult can use this product. No tools are required but one should always apply a bit of common sense. Prepare the area ahead of time. Know what you want to fix and have someone around to help keep parts straight. For instance, if you are re-attaching the leg of a chair, you want the two parts to fit neatly together because the only way to break the bond once set is to break the chair leg.
Best Fiber Fixes
It is best used as a wrap, not as a hole patch. New products from the same company have been released to address those types of fixes, but we will get to those in a minute. The original stuff is best for curves and the product should form layers. Resin forms a solid bond.
How It Works
How does it work? Cut FiberFix from its roll. Get it wet and wrap the stuff around a pole, pipe, chair leg, etc. Let it dry. You can hasten the process by using a blow dryer. Also, warmer water speeds up the process compared with cold water. Temperature is important for speed only; FiberFix is resistant to extreme temperatures.
Back to Vinyl
A vinyl strip is included with FiberFix and people often wonder why they would need that if the product is so good. This strip is not used to augment a repair but to help you press layers, strengthening the bond. That is all it does. Your fix would work without it.
DIY Time Frame
How long should it take for FiberFix to harden? That depends again on temperature, how wet the tape was, and whether or not you use some method to hasten the drying/heating process. For instance, next to a furnace this product will not catch fire but will get lovely and warm. But if your item is going to be left outside, you might need a day for the repair to fully take effect.
Compared Against Duct Tape
Why is FiberFix so much better than duct tape? This is really almost like homage to that historic product Red Green so loves to use on anything. What would he do with a roll of FiberFix? He would find all the places where duct tape had started to peel off due to a shoddy application and dampness. Although proper duct tape is really tough stuff, it does not bond to things or its own material. Wrapping something forms layers of defense but does not create a bond the way FiberFix does. Commercials showing duct tape and FiberFix used to make roll cages are not exaggerating: duct tape is still flexible at several centimeters of thickness while FiberFix is like cement. Its not super expensive to buy in spite of its amazing properties either.
Exciting Worldwide Phenomenon
Now that FiberFix has traveled the country, its makers have decided to launch it to the world too. You can buy it directly from a Canadian website and you may also find it in many locations worldwide. The original product has been diversified and there are numerous items one can purchase. The best deals could be found on the FiberFix website where there are special bundles and a chance to watch a video of two cars showing what happens when one is wrapped in a roll cage made of FiberFix and the other cage is made from duct tape. Give your DIY enthusiast a new reason to go on a household fix-it mission and the following month could see every little job completed at a low cost to the relief of an entire household and its groaning budget.
FiberFix Products Online and Near You
Now that you know about the history of FiberFix and how it works, maybe it is a good time to become acquainted with their short product line up. The online store offers some deals, but you can buy certain items at this shop and others at another store; they’re spread around the retail world online and in stores. FiberFix comes in several sizes and there are more products from the company besides their tape. Moreover, there are multiple formats and one gets the impression they will be developing more FiberFix products in the future.
Rolls of Tape
Most items from FiberFix are sold as rolls, the way you would expect to encounter duct tape or medical tape. It has to be sealed, of course, because water activates the resin to form a bond. There are three widths available: 1 inch, 2 inches, and 4 inches. I recommend trying some out before ordering a bundle or a multi-pack, but once you know how and where to use it, order three 1-inch rolls at a time or two 2-inch rolls rather than one at a time. This is the easiest way to save money on a product which, let’s face it, reduces your repair bills by a considerable amount. In fact, your spouse might get a little frustrated that you never need to buy anything new. Every home and office should keep at least one roll in the drawer marked “miscellaneous” and every tool box should contain some too. Keep it stored in a moisture-proof environment.
Costs of FiberFix
So a roll of 1-inch tape costs $5.99. The triple pack, however, costs just $12.99 or roughly $4.33 per roll. With the 2-inch version, you pay $8.50 for one or $12.99 for 2 ($6.50 each). Try a four-inch tape for $9.99, not available in multi-packs.
Another product, released to address flat surface repairs, is the 10X Tape for $11.99. It is not as tough as FiberFix but reputedly ten times stronger than duct tape. A person cannot rip or tear it but 10X Tape is more flexible than FiberFix and does not harden like cement. It does not form a bond either. FiberFix supplies a small retractable razor so you can cut 10X Tape easily, but scissors are also useful in this case.
For Hot Places
A Heat Wrap is designed specifically for use in high heat settings, although the original FiberFix is resistant to extreme heat as well. Wraps are ideally suited to furnace fittings, hot water pipes, and car exhausts. Don’t forget: the FiberFix wrap is heat-resistant, but you are not. Make sure pipes are cool when you apply the tape.
More for Less
Bundles are excellent value. FiberFix is offering three bundle sizes online only and these come with multiple sizes of FiberFix rolls, patches, and pens. The patches are meant for flat repairs like holes in your car frame or in a wall perhaps. Reviews for this product are not as promising as testimonial about original FiberFix, but it’s part of the bundle anyway and not sold separately on their website. That could be a sign the patches have been removed or are currently back in the development stage.
The pens are interesting. One holds 10g of resin. Use this to seal cracks in metal, glass, ceramics, etc. then turn the UV light onto a surface for the resin to harden like cement. A Flash Pen is similar, but you are spraying crazy glue into cracks and materials you choose for this purpose are porous, like wood. Turn the light onto a surface to heat it solid.
For readers with a latex allergy, it’s worth noting that the people at FiberFix were thinking of you. The gloves included with their rolls of FiberFix are made from plastic. Alternatively, you can buy your own, of course, just to keep the resin away from your skin. But it’s a nice touch to be sensitive to one of the most common skin allergies if you ask me.
Appearance of FiberFix
Left to form a basic repair without being enhanced aesthetically, FiberFix is no prettier than duct tape medical tape, electrical tape, etc. The advantage of this material, however, is that once hardened it can be sanded smooth without destroying the repair. Now you can paint an area. Of course, raised areas will remain; you have not bonded two pieces together on the inside as you would with crazy glue. At least a surface can be restored to its original color, however, and tidied up.
Manly Man Advertising
FiberFix has established an image for itself as a manly man’s product. Call them chauvinists if you like but FiberFix is appealing to a stereotypical audience – the handyman – that guy who refuses to call a plumber, carpenter, or mechanic until he has tried every form of adhesive known to man in order to stop that leak, fix that crack, or address that rust hole in his muffler. He doesn’t want to pay $100 an hour.
As a result, you will see many references to the “Manly Man” around their website. Don’t let it bother you, DIY women. There are lots of handy females out there, but they can rise above the bias. It is undoubtedly a male tradition to try and look after everything without asking for help and an accurate stereotype. Not only is it accurate, but that guy with a roll of FiberFix around his arm wandering around the house and yard isn’t drinking or gambling, so let him have his hobby and feel technically gifted if only for a little while. If he gets out a hacksaw, though, maybe ask a few questions.
Testimonials from Happy Customers
Finally, if you do not believe all that you have read here today, take a look at what real people have done with FiberFix. This amazing adhesive is all over YouTube, Amazon, and the FiberFix website. Videos, pictures, and articles demonstrate how versatile and simple the subject is. You don’t need a degree in engineering or a gifted mechanical mind to figure out how to use it and the fix will be effective for a long time.
Comments Off on Comparing The IWalk, Ergobaum, And Freedom Crutch
Being injured is crummy, and wearing a cast, frame, or bandage around your foot and/or ankle makes you feel like an invalid. Then you get crutches and are mobile, but they can cause pain of their own.
For example, the part under your armpits is padded but it still digs in and bruises the surrounding area. Your hands pressing down feel sore and some people report having to wear cycling or gardening gloves in order to prevent blisters or provide some padding. The wrists ache after being bent at an uncomfortable angle for too long. You have to hold your foot up and bend your knee slightly all the time which means activating muscles all the way up your leg for long periods of time.
They get stronger, but that’s not the way you want to go about improving leg strength. Ultimately, this posture causes pain and secondary injuries. Both hands are occupied so you can’t do anything for yourself, at least not without a great deal of difficulty.
What is the Answer?
Innovators, some of the previous injury sufferers or healthcare workers, have come up with a solution: provide consumers something to rest the knee on. You will only have to use one crutch if the balance is right. Some systems are all-in-one and others are accessories meant for attaching to a standard crutch. There are some criteria one must meet before considering such a device, but these tools come as a relief to many injured individuals around the country. Three such items are the iWalk, Freedom Crutch, and the Ergobaum.
One must be able to bend at the knee to a 90° angle so the injury will affect nothing as high as the knee. Very tall or very short people plus extremely heavy individuals might have to modify their search. Generally, all of the following products have provided relief to numerous individuals who can expect to be using crutches for several weeks or months. All of them present pros and cons, so lots compare them. Also, the makers of these tools insist they are not suitable for people with other mobility issues beyond an isolated injury. Your balance should be pretty good and active individuals seem to be drawn to these tools.
This is a crutch for people from 5 feet tall to 6’4″ which is a considerable height range and also a wide range of potential weights. You can use it if you are right- or left-handed by making adjustments which require no tools. It is a user-friendly system which has gone through some adjustments since it was first released.
With the iWalk, an injured person is able to rest the knee above an injured area and still walk if he or she can first establish correct balance. People become very excited about the iWalk because it allows them to release one hand and do more things for themselves. The one down-side to such an excellent product is that it costs far too much for what it is: more than $100 pricier than the Ergobaum which we will review next. Is $330 too much to pay? That’s a lot of money for something you hope to use for 6 to 8 weeks, maybe three months at the most, especially with some strong competition. At least you can sell it on and get some of your money back though.
Read Our iWalk Review (based on my brother-in-law’s experience) Post HERE.
Buy the iWalk on Amazon.com HERE!
I’m not sure what makes this so much cheaper than an iWalk when it seems to be even more innovative with so many safety features as designed by an orthopedic surgeon. The knee rest is there, adjustable within a similar range as above but slightly taller people can also use it comfortably.
There is also an elbow rest to allow one to take more weight off around the hand and armpit. In addition to mobility benefits and pain reduction, there are practical features for people who don’t want to stay in at night just because of a sprain, a break, or post-surgical healing.
There is a light, reflectors, and you can also let out a blast on the horn to make sure drivers see you when you cross a road or parking lot. Additionally, the makers installed springs into the tips in order to provide shock absorption that makes for an even more comfortable ride.
At around $200 it isn’t cheap, but more affordable than the iWalk. That said, there have been some noise-related issues with the spring-loaded tips, but not for everyone. Generally, ratings are good. The Ergobaum might need to go back to the drawing board if only to fix the squeaking problem.
Read our Ergobaum review HERE.
Buy the Ergobaum by Ergoactives on Amazon.com HERE!
At the hospital, many people walk away with a pair of medical-supply crutches that have been used by many individuals and worn out. The armpit rests aren’t as soft as they used to be. Tips don’t absorb a lot of impact; the rubber needs to be replaced. Meanwhile, there are all of those issues of strain and pain mentioned above whether your crutches are old or new.
You can leave one of the pair at your medical supply shop and just wear one with the Freedom Crutch. This accessory is screwed onto the crutch at the right angle for your knee to rest on it. You don’t have to buy a whole new crutch; just this $60 accessory. Some consumers have complained about the cost, and big people don’t find it very good value for money.
It is great, however, for someone with a tight budget or who thought he would be on crutches for a short time and had to extend his use of them, but doesn’t want to pay for an upgrade to the Ergobaum or iWalk after all this time. The knee rest is adjustable and lightly padded; maybe too lightly padded. Consider wearing pants that cover your knee when you use this device.
Consumers over 6 feet tall and 250 lbs will potentially bend the frame of the Freedom Crutch and others have complained about sharp metal pieces. Obviously, the Freedom Crutch needs to go through some tweaking, but it’s a revelation to people of average weight and height and has given many people relief from crutch-related suffering.

Comments Off on What The Heck Are Nootropics?
Say what? You haven’t heard of “Nootropics?” Don’t worry – neither did I until fairly recently! Nootropics is the title being given to a few drugs and supplements that are supposed help to improve cognitive motor function and perhaps more importantly, contribute to easing the symptoms of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s as well as ADHD. In spite of inconclusive research, they are becoming more of an option for easing such symptoms mentioned above.
The actual word Nootropic is a term that is frequently used for any supplement that a person takes to work for the brain function and cognitive ability.
If a product helps the person to focus or improve their alertness and relax, it is considered to be a nootropic.
The actual word Nootropic is Greek for “Toward the Mind.” As supplements are taken the goal is to improve the memory and function of the mind.
As more research is being done constantly, many are jumping on board in hopes of finding ways to reduce such symptoms with minimal side effects. Unfortunately, many of these supplements have serious side effects so more research is underway to help find how these drugs can be improved to help increase the good of the supplements and reduce the bad side effects.
What Are Nootropics?
In the United States, there are many dietary supplements that are safe and reliable for treating cognitive motor function as well as memory. There are also drugs that are stimulants that are believed to help improve the memory as a side effect.
According to a new law in the United States, if such supplements contain any drugs that claim to prevent or treat such conditions, they are now illegal. This leaves a lot of the information open to interpretation by the user which can be a dangerous way to determine if a supplement is safe to use for specific conditions.
Used to help alleviate cognitive motor conditions, these nootropics come in a wide array of forms and potencies that are believed by many to help such conditions. However, without the proper research, these supplements may or may not be helpful in treating these patients.
The Research on Nootropics
According to research, supplements may help mental/cognitive function, focus, memory, and other symptoms that frequent patients who struggle with Alzheimer’s, ADHD, Huntington’s and Parkinson’s disease.
They may improve how the brain functions and they may help to stall symptoms from worsening in patients of the above-mentioned conditions.
Other pharmaceuticals such as Adderall, lisdexamfetamine, and other amphetamine classified drugs may also be of benefit for such conditions. Interestingly, such drugs are frequently used for those with ADHD symptoms.
Researchers are always trying new drugs and combinations of drugs to help reduce symptoms and alleviate what they can in patients who are struggling with these health issues.
Some drugs and supplements can cause a myriad of serious side effects, others may not work as well on one patient as they do on others. Just as every disease and condition progress differently, every drug and supplement may have different results in patients.
Researchers want to find out why something works well for one patient and doesn’t work at all for another patient so more research is constantly underway to try and help them understand how these drugs and supplements are metabolized in the body.
Top Nootropics Brands
when it comes to supplements and drugs there are many to choose from. Some are old and very traditional while others are new or hybrids of other drugs or supplements that we’ve known about for decades.
Not only that, but the company is using real clinical trials, including double-blind, placebo controlled studies to determine if Ceretrophin™ (the technical name for BriteSMART) is effective, and the results are very promising! You can see the information about this study for yourself here at the company’s page about the clinical trial.
BriteSMART is believed to help with your memory, focus, and concentration. Taken daily, this all natural formula has been available on the market for over 20 years.
BriteSHIELD protects, detoxes and restores the brain. It protects it from the daily stressors that can affect how a person perceives and deals with whatever life throws at them.
BriteSHOT works much like energy drinks work in that it helps to boost your energy midway through the day when you’re starting to lag. It protects the brain from neurotoxins, free radicals, and inflammation.
All three formulas may be used together or patients may choose to use one product over the others as a stand alone product.
Either way, the product is said to improve the brain function and the person’s ability to recall and remember things that once were evasive.

Lumonol is designed to raise the cognitive performance and enhance the memory. It helps to improve focus and speed up the time it takes the brain to remember and recall things.
The company emphasizes the ingredient Noopept (N-phenylacetyl-L-prolylglycine ethyl ester), which they say is not only promotes stress relief, but also better cognitive health and memory – which is one of the primary reasons consumers are looking for these formulations.
For those who are struggling with issues of being able to focus, if they are easily distracted or struggle with poor memory or nervousness. If they struggle with fear or slowing down their thought process, if they are feeling as if their brain won’t stop and the thoughts keep coming, this product can help to reduce these feelings and more.
Lumonol allows the patient to relax and slow these thoughts and manage their anxiety. Lumonol is also designed with three specific formula’s.
Choose the formula that is tailored to meet specific needs. There is the Nootropic formula that is believed to help improve the mental abilities of those who take this supplement.
There is a formula called Lumonol prep for ages 8 to teens. This is to help them to focus and improve their cognitive abilities.
Lastly, there is the Lumonol Wisdom formula for those 60 and over. It helps to improve memory, energy, and clarity.

For those wishing to boost energy and their mind, Optimind is believed to help them achieve focus and clarity.
Being able to focus helps a person to function at their prime regardless of the hour of the day. Whether a person is a night owl or an early bird, Optimind can help them to achieve their highest level of ability regardless of the time of day.
Taken as a supplement this can help to boost energy and the ability to recall and remember what is going on.
Note that caffeine is common to formulations such as this, so take note of this if you are sensitive to caffeine.
New IQ2 Nootropic Stack: Some Real Good Brain Food
As we’ve been seeing, nootropics are big business, and the subject places focus on healthy cognitive function after many years of hearing about obesity and heart disease. The iQ2 nootropic breakthrough proves that a much-loved substance is good for the brain and the whole body.
- Raw, Unprocessed Cacao
Raw cacao contains numerous nutrients which perform a host of functions. Medical studies have uncovered the way this food, known and used for centuries in its native lands, acts as a natural stimulant.
We also know why women often eat chocolate during their menstrual periods: raw cocoa is a mood enhancer and regulator. In other words, if your moods are out of balance, raw cocoa can help to stabilize them.
Antioxidants fight free radicals and raw cocoa is full of them too; more than other foods and drinks associated with polyphenols such as red wine.
Raw cacao inhibits bad cholesterol; thus, eating a little bit of it every day is an excellent way to protect the heart. Polyphenol supplements also contribute to the prevention of Type Two Diabetes and stroke.
- Science and Society
We see the proof of these things in daily life, especially the mood-enhancing power of chocolate, but science stands behind the claims made above. Using nootropics which contain raw cacao powder has been shown to improve mental health, provide additional energy, and fight off disease.
- An iQ2 No-brainer
There was no question that iQ2 would include raw cacao powder given what their research uncovered. It works with other essential ingredients to create a highly bioavailable supplement, reaching the brain rapidly. Use this supplement and expect to feel energized and focused.
- What else is in the iQ2 nootropic stack?
The iQ2 nootropic supplement contains extracts which can be found naturally in salmon, eggs, bananas, apples, avocados, oranges, and more.
Some substances would normally only be taken as vitamins, such as vinpocetine for improved blood flow.
DMAE, found in fish, improves mental endurance. Choline — present in eggs — enhances memory, learning, and prevents memory loss due to age.
Most of the other ingredients also promote improved energy, concentration, and memory such as guarana, B-complex, and acetyl-L-carnitine found in dairy products.

Readily available without a prescription, this product by Neuro Laboratories is believed to help patients focus and hold their attention.
Seven years ago, Archie Marks created this original formula. He designed it to help boost his neurotransmitter function, improve his memory and help improve his memory. As he worked on this product, it was also noted that it helped to improve anxiety, improve concentration and restore feelings of confidence.
NITROvit has quickly become a favorite among others who are trying to improve their memories as well as their cognitive function. Another reason that may be attributed to NITROvit’s popularity if that Neuro Laboratories is proud to announce exactly what is in the product, and they refuse to hide behind the term “proprietary formula.”
Consumers know exactly what is in the product – and this is certain to engender a sense of confidence and trust. Read more about this and their other policies at the nitrovit.com site.
According to research, it shows that the supplement helps to improve ADHD symptoms, reduce the signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s and it helps to balance the brain nutrients that affect the aging process.
For those who are struggling with memory retention, this product is said to help to restore that function. It improves blood flow to the brain and restores most function to the brain.
What might be in a typical nootropic stack?
In many of the supplements we have talked about, you might see something that is often referred to as a “nootropic stack,” and some of the following ingredients will be bundled together:
In a Lumonol “Energy Blend,” for example, you’ll see Guarana, Hordenine, Vitamin B12 and Panax Ginseng.
In their “Focus Blend,” you will see “Noopept” (N-phenylacetyl-L-prolylglycine ethyl ester), L-Tyrosine, Acetyl L-Carnitine, and Phosphatidyl Serine.
In their “Memory Blend,” you’ll see Alpha GPC and Ginkgo Biloba.

Is Solubility Important?
Some supplements are water soluble while others are fat soluble. If you’re unsure, you’ll want to find out.
Water solubles are perfect for taking or mixing with water. When they are in powdered form they will dissolve easily in water and mix well.
On the other hand, fat soluble products will not mix well with water. They will clump and not dissolve.
A solution for a fat soluble product would be to take it with a glass of milk or mix that powder into the glass of milk.
It will then dissolve and be able to mix and blend into the product so that it can be easily ingested and digested in the body.
Typically, most supplements are a fat soluble. An additional benefit to fat soluble products is that they will last longer in the body and thus provide a longer benefit to the body.
Should Nootropics Be Taken With Food?
Just as many of your medications should be taken on an empty stomach or with food, so should nootropics.
The trick is to remember that water soluble products should be taken on an empty stomach. This way they get into your system much more quickly to provide the benefits that your body needs.
On the other hand, fat soluble products should be taken with food. They will bind to the fats and process through the body much more quickly thus providing the nutrients that the body requires.
Another option for fat soluble products is to take a fish oil supplement about 15 minutes after eating. This will help give the product something to bind to and provide the body with the extra boost that it requres to process the nootropic.
Sublingual vs Ingesting
Some products might be taken sublingually. Sublingual simply means that you place the substance underneath of the tongue and allow it to dissolve or absorb.
Sublingual products pass directly into the bloodstream avoiding the liver as well as the stomach. This means that they enter the system much more quickly and will begin to work faster.
If a product must first pass through the liver or the stomach, it is going to take longer for it to process through the body. It must first pass through the stomach and be digested before it can begin to work as it should in the body.
This time frame can take a few hours in some individuals. If taking products like this it’s wise to factor the digestion time in prior to ingesting so that the product is taken in plenty of time before it is required by the body.
With so many options on the market today, it’s no wonder that people struggle to understand which nootropic supplement is best for their specific needs.
Trial and Error
For others, it will take a bit more of trial and error to completely determine which product is best and which one will fit their needs most closely.
Other products and supplements tout their ability to help improve the memory but they have little scientific evidence to back it up. Without hard concrete scientific evidence, there is minimal chance that these supplements can actually improve the memory, help people to focus and relax.
With commercial prescribed medications such as these, many patients find that they are misusing them. Not all of this misuse is intentional, some patients don’t realize how potent these medications and drugs are.
They feel as if the medication isn’t working and in an attempt to make it work they inadvertently overdose. Other times, they take their prescriptions incorrectly and thus bring other issues on to their health.
Often, patients are on the path of discovery for what will work for their needs. Some medications and supplements shouldn’t be taken together.
Every effort should be taken to understand how the supplement and medications will interact. It’s important that patients tell their doctor if they are taking any supplements in addition to the prescribed medications that they are taking.
Although many of the nootropics have had limited studies done in humans, they are believed to provide improved brain function.
The brain is an organ in the body that is largely unknown. It helps to manage how everything else in the body functions. From language to motion, the brain is always at work, even when people are asleep.
By providing the brain with supplemental support, the cognitive function, as well as the memory are improved.
Clearly nootropics have a lot of responsibility to the body and to the brain. Helping to clarify and maintain focus as well as improve energy and overall well being, many are turning to this supplement as a way to improve their brain function as well as their cognitive abilities and many medical conditions.
Comments Off on Impact Of The Hybrid & Electric Bicycle
Electric powered travel is not as new as we think it is. For more than a hundred years, inventors have been trying to develop systems which allow consumers to use electricity to power their vehicles and even bicycles rather than burning fossil fuels. This has meant developing batteries that can last long enough for extended journeys without being huge and too expensive. Electric and hybrid bicycles have been around for more than a century, so why are consumers only hearing a lot about them right now?
Hybrid & Electric Bicycle Absence
Technology was not quite ready to meet the needs of consumers a hundred-plus years ago; even a decade ago. Low-tech batteries were very large. The e-bike, as it would later be known, was slow and expensive. The battery was capable of only short journeys, just like an electric car battery. Battery chemistry has been subject to extensive research and funding in recent years, thanks to demands for electric cars, so technology has been leaping forward at a fast rate than ever. This is also partly due to the desire for wireless electronics among consumers.
UPDATE! We now have some great electric bikes listed!
Check our sections on “Electric and Hybrid Bicycles” and “Electric Bicycles on Amazon“
Why Go Electric
With a regular bike, a person’s body is responsible for doing all the work. This makes it impractical for consumers to make regular journeys by bicycle if they travel many kilometers to work, church, school, etc. Time constraints are an issue as is the uncomfortable reality that you sweat when you work like this. Bosses tend to frown on sweaty employees. Then again, traffic and parking prices plus the cost of purchasing, maintaining, and insuring a vehicle make cars poor options as well. Even if you can afford the price of running your car and taking it to work every day, there is the unfortunate environmental cost to be weighed up.
Think of a traffic jam, where cars are spewing toxins into the air without going anywhere. Bicycles can get between the vehicles, however, allowing individuals to travel more freely at times. Of course, that is not the case on a high-speed highway or where cars are able to move freely; when climbing hills, a car will go faster. Ultimately, the efficiency and usefulness of an electric bike is not as important as environmental factors.
Hybrid vs. Electric
There are two types of electric bike. The hybrid requires consumers to do some of the pedaling and might take some power back into the battery as a result of a person’s cycling efforts or while coasting downhill. An electric bike can be pedalled but the motor will handle everything if you wish. The line between them is a very fine one; more to do with battery power and duration; wattage and speed than anything else. Designs resemble all types of bicycles and they are made for city or off-road use specifically.
Who is the Electric Bike for?
Little has been said about electric bikes in North America until recently. The success of electric cars has prompted greater interest, however. Like Tesla and Nissan, e-bike inventors and manufacturers are responding to environmental needs. Finally, the technology is becoming affordable enough for average people to purchase it.
But will the average person buy one? Right now, that depends on where you live. In places where cycling is the normal way to travel, these devices are very big business. Holland and China are two examples. If your destination is further than 60 miles, a car is the better choice, and this is only with the top bike motors installed. For short journeys of 20 miles or less, electric bikes are excellent if there is somewhere to plug the battery in and charge it up.
The senior/disabled market could benefit significantly. If you can’t ride a regular bicycle comfortably because of injury or poor health, motorized assistance offers a compromise. You might have to pedal a little bit and at least get some exercise, but age and infirmity don’t keep you off of two wheels anymore. Spouses and kids can’t complain that a loved one is riding a dangerous, noisy motorbike; bicycles with motors are permitted on paths, are quiet, and they don’t reach nearly high enough speeds to make for a risky ride.
Young people are also discovering the allure of riding a bike with a motor. Battery operated technology and green attitudes are trendy. Teens and 20-somethings are more assertive about environmental issues than the previous generations have been, so they are choosing this bike versus a car. Moreover, since a good once can be purchased for around $1,500, a young person on a budget can afford this sort of transportation far more easily than he can afford to buy a car, fill it with gas, and keep it insured.
Generally, the electric bicycle is not fast enough or capable of high enough wattage to require registration or licensing. Anyone can ride them down city streets. Cars enhance one’s feeling of independence, but an electric bike is a compromise between that desire for freedom and budgetary realities.
Comments Off on Buying and Using 3D Printers
We’ve recently become enthralled with 3D printers. I even had a dream about using one the other night where I was talking with someone about “making a tree” or something oddball like that, and he told me, “Okay, let’s do it now,” and (in my dream), he pressed a button and lo and behold, a “tree” just kind of “grew” on top of the desk. So… anyway, I have vivid dreams. (No gold coins were created though… haha!)
Anyway, there is no reason to feel limited by two-dimensional printing anymore. If you are struggling to convey a 3-dimensional idea to someone at the office, have it printed in three dimensions and show people what are you have been thinking about. This is really, truly possible right now and has been going on for longer than the average person might imagine.
How Does It Work?
With a conventional printer, you take something from your computer and copy it onto paper to share and to see. Information comes from software, files saved into your documents, and so on. With a 3D item, special software allows the user to create a model of something precisely. An example might be a figurine one would place on a shelf. It would be created without necessarily having any artistic skill thanks to an advanced, user-friendly software program. Reports say it can work with mechanical parts, jewelry, and much more.
In fact, for many years manufacturers have been using 3D printers to create items either to continue the process of creating a finished item, looking at a prototype and so on, or to create the finished item. Companies are saving money and time by spending big money on commercial 3D printers because, in spite of their cost (which is coming down), these machines allow commercial operations to create prototypes on the spot without having to send away for them. If a change has to be made, it is also created on the spot. There is no waiting and the cost is much less.
There are items which can be placed on a desktop at work and can be used even in a small office space. Bigger machines take up half of a room, but those are not the biggest. The biggest 3D printing machines are for manufacturing items for sale. These can be created, seemingly, out of any media.
One brand provides inexpensive versions of those printers specifically for making models. Insert the filament color you need and watch smoothly finished items pile up on your desk for sale to customers anywhere in the world.
For Personal Use
On the other hand, keep them and finish them to be added to a collection you are building, to give as gifts, or to put in your garden. You can even have a printer at home and use it to duplicate items for your hobbies such as model parts. The software you need is already available and some of it for free, but other items must be purchased. They give you the ability to print off things which you would ordinarily have to order, maybe wait weeks for, and then possibly return because of a fault or damage which occurred when the item was shipped. Imagine having that technology on your desk at home: it is possible and affordable.
Some machines are just a few hundred dollars to purchase. Of course, providing the materials to use them is not like buying paper and ink cartridges. This is where expenses will increase considerably.
Like any individual who wants to buy some technological gizmo and has to have the best, there are expensive models of personal printers too. They are getting cheaper but cost a few thousand dollars to own.
When VHS first came out, hardly anyone owned a video player. To watch a movie at home meant renting the machine and the movie. People did not own printers. They took floppy disks to special print shops and had items produced that way. Individuals still take their information to print and photocopy shops to save money on the costs of printing masses of material, especially in color or in particular styles of paper. This way they do not have to own the technology or find room for it when they can hardly ever see themselves using it.
The same is true for 3D printing. Shops providing this service are more common today than ever. If you are not sure about the uses you could find for 3D printing, try the software without buying a machine. (Of course you can buy them for home use.)
Writers on the subject of 3D printing note that the possibilities continue to expand and change the world we live in. Once someone comes up with an idea, it seems only a short while before it is brought to fruition now that the technology exists. For instance, there are reports of using 3D bioprinters for testing medicines and for other medical purposes.
Who knows where it’s all going to lead? Right now, there are a number of desktop versions available, such as the one in this LulzBot Mini Desktop 3D printer review here at the site. People are having a blast learning this new technology, and I’m guessing it won’t be long before they’re seen in schools and homes everywhere!

Comments Off on Help Save the Vape & Why We Support HR 2058
We don’t often get into political discussions here at MyFavDeals.org, but on behalf of a number of our merchants and our customers, we are asking you to consider supporting what is known as HR 2058, an effort for and by the electronic cigarette industry to stop improper FDA regulations that would remove 99.9% of Vapor products from the market (while, of course continuing to allow big tobacco cigarettes to remain ON the market). We support HR 2058, and hope that you will too. Anyway, you’ll hear our own story in a moment…
To go right to the petitions:
1. Sign The Official White House Petition to overturn the FDA’s ruling on e-cigarette classification as a tobacco product – because, these are NOT tobacco products. –> Click Here to Sign
2. Send A Message to Your Representative to Support HR 2058 introduced by Oklahoma Representative, Tom Cole. –> Click Here to Sign
3. Send A Message To Your Attorney General to Support Iowa AG Tom Miller, regarding a debate on the scientific merits of vaping. –> Click Here to Sign
To learn a little about what this is all about, we offer this video entitled Truth About Vaping – Episode 1 “Why They Hate Us.” Then, below, please allow us to give you our background and reasons for our personal support of this bill.
The other day, our team here at the site was talking about much fun it is for us to discover new merchants, products, and services, and then to introduce them to all of you. We were marveling at how many diverse interests that we have between all of us – some of us dig music and reading, others love yoga and hiking, almost all of us love cooking and gourmet foods (or at least eating them!), etc.
It’s pretty amazing that almost every time we turn around, we’re presented with another amazing opportunity to promote, and we love it. We feel quite blessed to have such a diverse tapestry of products to offer.
Some of the things you’ll notice that we offer here on the site include a variety of electronic cigarettes and vaping supplies. This is because a number of us either have smoked cigarettes and made the move to e-cigs in an effort to cut back on inhaling tobacco smoke. I, personally used to smoke cigarettes, and it took a mighty effort to quit “back in the day” (before e-cigs were available). It would be almost impossible to ignore the fact that inhaling tobacco smoke is just not healthy.
When at least 3 of my friends and colleagues here on MyFavDeals.org discovered e-cigs, one of them began using them to see if he could wean himself off tobacco cigarettes, because he wanted to feel better. He – along with a couple of the others here – kept reading that e-cig companies were not allowed by law to say that these might be useful as smoking cessation devices. But, they had seen the anecdotes and experiences of other men and women in a variety of vaping and e-cig forums, and thought, “Hey, why not? Surely it can’t hurt to try…”
Here it is a couple of years later, and one of the guys is 100% smoke free, AND he no longer even vapes. In another example, a young woman I know told me that she was trying e-cigs, because her mother had tried repeatedly to quit smoking, and had gone through gums, nicotine patches, and who knows what else without any success – until she tried substituting e-cigs for tobacco. She now no longer needs either.
Then, another guy I know has cut back his cigarette use considerably. He didn’t give me an exact measure, but he figures that e-cigs constitutes about one half or a little more than what he used to smoke.
Finally, I was talking with one of the guys who was working on my apartment building when I was away this past winter, and I noticed during one of his breaks, he was vaping on an Eleaf iStick box mod that I recognized since of course that’s a model we often see promoted by the different merchants we highlight, and we struck up a conversation about vaping in general.
He couldn’t speak highly enough about e-cigs, because he had completely given up tobacco since making the decision to try this as an alternative. He talked about how much money he saved – which I know is considerable since I’ve seen cost comparisons between tobacco cigarettes versus e-cigs in general – but even more important to him was that he physically felt better. His job is a very strenuous one, and he explained that he had more endurance and no longer felt out of breath. Also, he would not vape for the same amount of time that he would smoke a cigarette. In other words, he might take a puff or two off his mod, and be totally satisfied; whereas, if he had lit a cigarette, he would not stop puffing until the whole thing was smoked.
During any conversation that I have with someone who vapes, I notice that I am not in the least bit bothered by the vapor that their devices help produce. I don’t smell it, I don’t notice it, and I’m not offended by it. And the person vaping doesn’t “smell” either. I have an exceedingly sensitive sense of smell, and don’t like the smell of tobacco smoke (with the exception of certain pipe tobacco which for some reason doesn’t bother me). Of course that’s another benefit my friends who vape have noticed.
Now, again, I am a non-smoker. I also do not vape since I long ago gave up nicotine and have no intentions of starting again. I am a staunch supporter of HR 2058, and I have signed 2 separate petitions to help the cause. And, it’s not just because we offer vaping supplies here on the site. To me it’s to support the vaping community and to help put a stop to the madness perpetuated by “big tobacco” since in my personal opinion – along with the opinion of my partners here at MyFavDeals.org, the push to pretend that e-cigs and vaping supplies are “tobacco products” is about one thing only: Greed.
Please take a moment to watch this excellent video that explains part of why “big tobacco” is pushing so hard to harm the e-cig industry, and it should become crystal clear that they aren’t interested in your “health” – they are interested in being able to increase their own profits. I have nothing against profits – we all need to make a living, and part of the fun here at MyFavDeals.org is earning commissions when someone purchases a product as a result of something they have found here at the site!
But when common sense and decency are trampled by nonsense and greed disguised as something called “in our best interests” I cannot just stand by and do nothing. And so I am asking you – whether or not you personally vape – please take a moment to learn the facts behind these ridiculous attempts to hurt the e-cig industry and sign the petitions. We have also added a few additional links to other news articles covering this topic, below.
Thank you so much for reading, and for your support!
