Heart attacks happen lightening fast. It is critical to get aspirin in someone immediately upon any indication they may be experiencing a cardiac event. This clever American company took that urgency and made palatable fast acting credit card sized packets containing potent medication in the form of a powder.
Company president Jordan Eisenberg watched his dad carry around tablets as a precaution for a heart attack and he himself sported antihistamines for allergies and knew there had to be a better way. UrgentRx uses the same active ingredients as the leading brands, fits right in your wallet and no water is needed-just rip open the package and pour the pleasant tasting dissolving powder directly into your mouth. UrgentRx Critical Care is a must-have for heart attack sufferers, offering the doctor-recommended dosage of 325mg of aspirin. There are formulations for other ailments too, including allergy attacks, ache and pain relief and heartburn.This should be in every home and handbag.

Swisse Women’s Ultivite Formula and Wild Krill Oil
1 came across this brand at a gifting suite for the Emmys. I lived with it for several months to see if I could tell any difference. My energy levels, concentration and overall wellbeing are up. Plus, I’m a true believer in quality fish oil for internal organ and brain function. I really like the combination of these two supplements for the wide swath of good they both do, and many people (myself included) forget to take multiple pills, but two pills is manageable for most people. The Women’s formula contains 50 premium quality vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and herbs to help support women’s nutritional needs and maintain health. The multi has antioxidant Vitamins A, C and E and Selenium. Available sizes: 60 Tablets MSRP $19.95
The Wild Krill pill capsules are loaded with Omega-3sm essential fatty acids that help maintain good health and play an important role in helping maintain a healthy cardiovascular system. This supplement is especially beneficial for the heart, brain, joints and eyes. Suisse uses krill and wild fish, not farmed.

Over 70 million Americans are interested in lowering their gluten consumption, according to a 2013 survey conducted by NPD Group, a consumer research firm. Amazing numbers, as 1 in 8 people are estimated to have trouble digesting this protein composite, as evidenced by symptoms like bloating, gas, nausea, headache, and fatigue. For some with Celiac disease, gluten is poisonous and even deadly if not removed from the diet.
Gluten is found in bread, pasta, pastries, pizza, and even non grain-based foods like soups, salad dressings, sauces, marinades, deli meats, seasonings, soy sauce and even ice creams.
Gluten Cutter™ literally shields the stomach and small and large intestine from the gluten molecules. One to two capsules should be taken just prior to eating a gluten-containing food. Gluten Cutter is easy to carry with you and should be in your handbag or computer bag for an unexpected meal out.
“Gluten is such a prevalent part of our diet that it is hard to avoid. In fact, the USDA food pyramid encourages us to let grains account for up to 20% of our food intake each day,” says Al Baumeler, Sr. Vice President of Marketing. “Finally saying ‘no’ to gluten doesn’t mean saying “never again” to favorite foods.”
Gluten Cutter is distributed by Core Science Medica, and is available at Walgreen’s, CVS, select Walmart stores, and many other locations. See www.glutencutter.com for stores near you. Suggested retail for a 30-capsule box is $12.99.
