Dr Oz, Green Coffee Bean Extract and Dieting

For weeks I have been hearing fantastic things about Green Coffee Bean Extract. It all began when Dr. Oz did a show on fat burning and discussed exactly how Green Coffee Bean Extract was a new much to reduce weight without diet or workout. All seems too great to be real, so I determined to do some research and right here is exactly what I located.

Dr. Joe Vinson, Ph. D, and the University of Scranton just recently performed a study on the results of Green Coffee Bean Extract for weight loss. In this double blind, placebo controlled study, 16 overweight adults between the ages of 22 and 46 were randomly provided varying doses of Green Coffee Bean Extract (700mg and 1050mg) and matching placebos over a 22 week duration.

At the end of the research, topics lost an average of 17 pounds, which is around 10.5 % of their body weight and 16 % of their body fat. Dr. Vinson believes that it was chlorogenic acid, not caffeine, that caused these fat burning results.

Chlorogenic acid is an antioxidant located with Green coffee Bean extract. Chlorogenic acid may be the factor responsible for Green Coffee Bean Extract’s fabulous fat burning results. This powerful antioxidant boosts metabolism by changing the means sugar is absorbed in the body.

Chlorogenic acid hinders the release of glucose into the blood stream. The greatest quantities of glucose are released after dinners and physical task. The body uses this glucose for energy. When the body does not release as much glucose, it is required to burn fat cells for energy. This procedure is called thermogenesis.

This polyphenol anti-oxidant also helps hinder the absorption of dietary fat and the strong antioxidant effects of chlorogenic acid might even reduce the development of brand-new fat cells. All of these aspects help chlorogenic acid add to healthy and natural weight loss.

 The Right Chemical Properties of Rhodiola Rosea

There are certain chemical properties that are responsible for Rhodiola Rosea’s positive health benefits. In order to receive maximum benefits, consumers must choose a Rhodiola supplement with a 3:1 rosavin to salidrosides ratio.  Rhodiola Rosea with this chemical ratio is proven most beneficial.

Review of OOTW Dolls from Blip Toys – Out of This World Dolls

Why do all Barbie dolls have girls wanting to look perfect?  And who is to say that the Barbie look is the “perfect” look?  As a Mom I am tired of Barbie dolls and the stereotypes they reinforce.  The problem is, girls like to play with dolls, so what is a Mom to do?

OOTW Dolls from Blip Toys to The Rescue

I did some searching online for dolls for girls that celebrate being different and care about more than just good lucks.  My search led me to the O.O.T.W. Dolls from Blip Toys.  The OOTW Girls look really funky, fun and different.

I found a very good review of OOTW Dolls and also an excellent video that shows two of the dolls in action.  Check out this video –

The two dolls in the video are Techno and Vizi.  I really like how different looking they are.  This will teach our girls that there is no one perfect way to look.  Everyone can look different and be different and still be beautiful.  I have not checked out the online world yet – called Girlaxy, but it has a great name.

I will be buying the OOTW Dolls and see if my girls love it as much as I do!

What is Spirulina?

Spirulina is a single-celled, blue-green microalgae that is often called a super food because of its vast nutrient profile. Spirulina most commonly grows in warm lakes such as Lake Chad in Africa. However, it is found in many environments such as soils, sands, alkaline lakes, brackish water, seawater and freshwater. Spirulina can also be cultivated by artificial farming methods.

Pure Spirulina provides vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids, carbohydrates and enzymes. Spirulina is a highly digestible food made of at least 60% vegetable protein. It is higher in protein than any other food. Its nutritional profile also includes the essential fatty acids, GLA fatty acid, lipids, B complex, vitamin C and E and phytochemicals, such as carotenoids, chlorophyll, and phycocyanin. Phycocyanin is a protein that is known to inhibit cancer. The carotenoids and chlorophyll may also contribute to Spirulina’s anticancer effects.

Spirulina is very useful for those with a compromised immune system. It stimulates immune system cells that help fight infection. Spirulina may increase the growth of good bacteria in the intestines which prevents infection. It may also be helpful in removing toxic metals from the body. Spirulina has been used for the treatment of intestinal difficulties, arthritis, gout, malnutrition, allergies, anemia, high cholesterol, internal inflammations, cancer, radiation poisoning, diabetes, liver disease, kidney damage and hypoglycemia.

AppGear Zombie Burbz Hands-On Review. Augmented Reality Game for iPad

Zombies on the iPad and iPhone have been big for a while.  There is no shortage of apps that feature Zombies in endless battles.  So, what is so different about the new Zombie Burbz game for the iPad from AppGear?  You control your onscreen Zombie with a toy figure Zombie!

Augmented Reality Hits the iPad App Market

Zombie Burbz is the first game from AppGear.  AppGear is bridging the gap between apps and toys.  You use a toy figure Zombie to unlock different missions, but that is not all.  You also use your toy Zombie directly on the screen of the iPad to control the action in the game.

Here is a great video we found on YouTube that shows Zombie Burbz being played…

As you can see, the toy figures are really used in the game.  It looks like it cost about $10 to get a pack of 4 Zombie figures.  The thing is, only 1 of those Zombie figures actually interacts with the game, the other 3 are just for collecting.

Overall, the whole AppGear line looks pretty fun.  I love Zombie games, and having a toy zombie figure to control the action is a neat twist.

Also, you might want to check out the DadDoes.Com site – they have a ton of product reviews and just about everyone has a video that goes with it as well.

National Geographic Explorer Series of Toys Reviewed on Dad Blog

National Geographic has been around for ever.  It seems like parents love National Geographic for the wonderful pictures and lessons on conservation and protecting our planet.  While the National Geographic magazine has been a staple in homes for years, in 2012 their is a new National Geographic item – toys!

The National Geographic Explorer Series of Toys Gets Full Review

Uncle Milton has now released a series of nine toys under the National Geographic label. The toys are being call the National Geographic Explorer Series. We did a quick search for reviews on the National Geographic toys and found this excellent video review from DadDoes.Com –

The video shows 3 toys from the line – the Sky Flare, Shoe Lights and Earth Tag.  After watching the video, it is clear the toys do not represent brand new concepts.  Most of the toys have already been made in other forms, but it is the Activity Guide that comes with it that gives the toy the National Geographic feel.

With all the electronics my kids play, I am into any toy that gets them playing outside and learning more about our planet and the environment.  I think I will give some of the toys a try.

Roll & Play by ThinkFun Jr – The First Game for Toddlers

If you walk into a toy store you will see endless toys for kids ages 3 and up.  This is great, unless you happen to have a toddler.  For some reason, there are no games for toddlers.  Yes, there are plenty of toys and little stuffed animals for toddlers, but if you want to play a game, your selection is very limited.

ThinkFun Jr Looks to Change Things with Roll & Play

ThinkFun Jr recently released their Roll & Play game and it looks perfect for the 3 and under crowd.  The concept is very simple, kids roll a big plush cube and see what color comes up.  There are 6 sets of colored cards, to match the 6 colors on the cube.  You simply selected the colored card that matches the cube.  Each card has some funny action to do.  Maybe mo like a cow, or count to three.

Here is a video that shows the Roll & Play in action –

The great part about Roll and Play is that there are no set rules, you can come up with what is most fun for your whole family.  Give it a try, Roll and Play looks fun for the whole family.
