What is Hyaluronic Acid?  

In my research about the product itself and its
origin, I came a crossed in the article published on the Dr. Oz beauty website, 
“Hyaluronic Acid
(HA) is a naturally occurring polysaccharide (carbohydrate) in the human body,”
explains Arielle Kauvar, M.D., director of New York Laser and Skin Care.
 “It’s present in large amounts in the
spaces between skin cells, where it provides moisture, plumpness, firmness and
suppleness to the skin. It’s also present in the eyes and in the joint spaces,
where it acts as a lubricant and ‘shock absorber.’”  (Source:
In the website
called, the specific functions of HA in the human body was
briefly discussed: 
acid is present in every tissue of the body, and it performs many important
functions.  It helps deliver nutrients to
and carry toxins from cells that do not have a blood supply, such as those
found in cartilage; without adequate amounts of HA, the joints will become
brittle and deteriorate.  Not only does
it keep joints lubricated, but hyaluronic acid also encourages water retention
in other bodily tissues. It is found in large concentrations in the
extracellular matrix (ECM), which is the fluid-filled space between cells.  HA locks moisture into the ECM, keeping
collagen and elastin moist and promoting a youthful appearance.”
HA both have a Medicinal and Beautification purposes.
People take hyaluronic acid for various joint disorders, including osteoarthritis
It can be taken by mouth or injected into the
affected joint by a healthcare professional.  The FDA has approved the use of hyaluronic
acid during certain eye surgeries including
cataract removal, corneal transplantation, and repair of a detached retina and other eye injuries. It is
injected into the eye during the procedure to help replace natural fluids.
Research shows that company’s which carries skin care products like Clarigenics claimed that using
HA in the form of serum once applied in the facial skin (constantly and as directed) will moisturize the
skin surfaces and as a result will have a smoother skin surfaces, and youthful
glow eliminating skin dryness. 

Facial Serum Reviews Proving Questions
1. What is your main concern why you tried this
My facial skin is becoming dry resulting to rough
feeling because of the climate and it lacks of moisture.
2. What do you expect to achieve in using the
Youthful glow with smooth and moisturized feel.
3. Will you recommend it to other and if so who?
(Answer is at the end of the review statement)
My husband and I are using the Clarigenics
Hyaluronic Acid Serum for 17 days already.  We religiously applying the serum
around our eyes, and face down to our neck. Right now, we can visibly tell the
difference it made in our skins mostly on my part.  Before I tried this serum,
my facial care was Anew Platinum Cream but after few hours of applying it into
my face and being exposed to sunlight, my skin were becoming dry again to the point that 
becoming flaky.  With this serum, my skin were transformed from dry and rough
to smooth and soft.  It is not flawlessly smooth like the face of commercial
model but it is totally far from being dry.  The potent, long-lasting moisture
treatment effectively works in the kind of facial skin I previously had and
transformed it to a moisturized skin.  For the deep line repair part, I should say it’s still a work in progress.   As you noticed in the picture below, there was a deep line in between my eyebrows but after weeks of applying HA it was  reduced slowly. 

Be the judge

The lines below my eyelids are still there, but we are not yet done using the whole bottle of HA.  Right now I am
satisfied with the result. 

I will recommend it YES, but as always with
careful consideration what kind of skin condition and correction you need to
have.  If you need an effective natural facial moisturizer, try this serum.  Aside
of moisturizing your skin it is also an Anti-Aging Cream with Vitamin C + E.  It’s free from toxic ingredients (Paraben) and HA is good to all types of facial condition.  Follow thoroughly the instructions to works best and take care your health.  We want you to be healthy.

Life & Food Garcinia Cambogia Supreme 80% HCA Review

The first time I heard about Garcinia Cambogia was in one of the TV commercial of the famous Dr. Oz followed by when we visited one of our herbal supplements dealer store.  She was selling it there and for marketing she handed us a flier which briefly discussed the benefits of taking Garcinia Cambogia.  From then on my curiosity about the said natural weight loss was stirred.  Someone even offered us to try the product but my husband and I decided to declined it since we were in our midst of our pregnancy to our first born.  On my husband part, it was okay with him trying it but for me I was being legalistically-strict in using products that I don’t even have a thorough knowledge mostly dietary pills.   Before I had a negative connotation towards dietary products, for me anything about it is a drug that will not do anything good in the body.  

Things changed when “Reviews with Lady” received a free sample of Garcinia Cambogia Supreme 80% HCA (180 capsules) for product reviews from Life & Food, a company that is dedicated to deliver the highest quality supplements, health and food
products to provide a clean and healthy lifestyle. They strive to make a
difference in people’s health.

For a thorough understanding of this dietary capsules, “Reviews with Lady” conducted an individual online research about the history of this famous dietary capsule.

What is Garcinia Cambogia?

Garcinia Cambogia, also known as the Malabar tamarind, is a small, sweet tropical tree
fruit shaped like a pumpkin.  In the late 1960s, scientists discovered an
acid in the fruit somewhat similar to the citric acid found in fruits
like oranges and lemons.  That acid—called hydroxycitric acid, or HCA—has ridden a roller coaster
ride of popularity over the last 20 years.  It is alternately touted as a
miracle weight loss supplement and derided as effective only in rats.  (For further details, please visit

Photo Credit: cited that  the mechanism of action is inhibiting an enzyme called Citric acid lysase which is required in the synthesis of fatty acids, known as de novo lipogenesis.
At least in rats, evidence of suppressed de novo lipogenesis has been
noted and oral consumption of (-)-HCA appears to reliably
reduce food intake and body weight (the latter to a degree where food
intake cannot explain all the observed effects).   

HCA is the key component reduces glucose absorption there by leading to
fat reduction for those with high glucose levels.  With formulated high percentage of HCA, the more it helps suppress the appetite while burning fat. It has
also shown to improve blood lipid leves, help reduce fate production,
curb emotional eating and help improve mood by raising the “feel good”
hormone serotonin. It is clinically proven to block the stress hormone
cortisol, too. (For further details, visit Life & Food).  

Dietary Capsules Reviews Proving Questions

1. What is your main concern why you tried this product?
husband’s body mass index is 24.3% which is in the normal range (given
his age and height). Our main goal is for him to eliminate his belly
fat which looks like a 2 month-old-baby bump of a pregnant woman.
2. What do you expect to achieve in using the product?
the belly fat and to become more confident with the “body health” not
just physically but mentally using a natural weight loss products.
3. Will you recommend it to other and if so who? (Will answer at the end of our review statement).

Garcinia Cambogia Supreme 80% HCA is currently used by my husband.  He
said that the moment he first took it, he can tell the difference it
made in his body right after he took it.  For a few days he felt so good
with his body, and even boost his metabolism (been in the bathroom 3
times a day).  He was taking the capsules for a matter of 11 (eleven)
days now. For a matter of week and days of using it, his belly fat
become noticeably deflated.  

Judge for yourself

He did what was mentioned in the
instruction and carefully followed what was suggested. The first day he
only had two (2) capsules once a day and decided to changed it to two
(2) capsules twice daily.  His mood became lighter because of the
serotonin that is naturally present in the Garcinia Cambogia (which was what he likes more-more than the losing weight benefit).  In terms of
his appetite, I noticed that nothing really changed.  He usually eat
well and good.  Over all, taking this dietary capsule provided a good
benefit to his well-being the only thing was for the past days he became
sleepy and always wanting to have a nap than usual.  This started when
he increased his capsules intake daily.  Primarily, its credited to
serotonin which is being the natural sleep aid (study shows).  Other factor that we were also considering was the affect of serotonin to the anti-psychotic prescription drugs that he had called Haloperidol.   We are not sure(though we showed it to his primary care doctor before he started taking Garcinia Cambogia and he didn’t put any bad words about taking it).  Right now
we decided for him to stop taking it (just to stabilize the serotonin
levels in his body-our scientific hunch) and take it again and stopped it once we achieved our
goal why he first had it.  

For the last question, are we going to recommend it?  Absolutely YES.  We support the goodness of nature, and the
tastes of life.  But of course with careful consideration and depending
if the person really needs it.  We will also give emphasize to a careful consideration of person’s age,
if taking a prescription drugs, pregnant or nursing.  I myself tried a
two capsules but stopped using it since I am nursing.  But if you will ask what did I felt or noticed with my body after I had it…well I felt so light and tucked myself early in the bed at around 8:00 pm (same sleeping time as our little one) and the following morning, I was out of the bed at around 6:00 a.m with a refreshed and strengthened body.   Commonly, I stayed up late until 2:00 a.m and wasn’t able to have 8 hours of sleep because I need to be in the kitchen around 8:00 a.m preparing for our  breakfast.   I have a plan and with my husband’s support, once I am done nursing our baby girl,  I will definitely USE it again.

Experience and Expression by Joshua Adam Haltom

There was a time that I defined my husband as a person who communicate himself
using extensive metaphoric expression.  Yes he was perfectly aware about it in fact in the lyrics of the song he wrote for me
which entitled “Lady Bug” he said there, “words and feeling do not
so much define my meaning

This is funny but true that  even the people he was talking with, sometimes
had a drop-jaw experience whenever they talked with him because of the words he was using to communicate himself and even his ideas.  Amazed and stunned, they turned and looked at me saying, Josh is smart.  Different people, same comment.   

Before, the moment he opened his mouth he spoke ideas that totally out of this world.  The most concealed, something that came-out from pandora’s box.  Ideas that enveloped with  courage and braveness and certainly someone that conformed to what is familiar will not say.  One of the oldest person that knew him well advised me to pull him back, back to earth. 
Here is another fact about us, we grew up in a different country, different culture and mostly different languages.  His primary language is English, and mine is Filipino (Tagalog).  Though I was thought to use the English language when I was in elementary (age 6) sometimes his southern accent was also a barrier for me to fully understood what he was saying.   So it was really a BIG effort on our part to established a good communication. 
Now that he is back in doing his online-home schooling again (he stopped and give way his college to helped me rearing Abigail) I am thankful that he is becoming more fluent in expressing himself using words in a layman’s term.   In which of course a great helped on my part because I don’t need to grab Mr. Webster just to find what words he used (I am just kidding on the latter part).  One thing that I also noticed is he is becoming more open to express himself far from being intellectual but with a “soul” what I mean is straight from his heart.  
With the permission of my husband, I am sharing the article
that he wrote for his class called “Experience and Expression.”  As part of
their task they were instructed to write an essay of a brief introduction of
themselves using a brief examples of  their life. 

Our Family
My prayer is that every word that is written here will bridge the message of hope that comes from the love of God to each of us.   That the life experience of Joshua will expressed the hope he found in Jesus Christ and being transformed because of God’s grace and mercy that bestowed upon him.   Be blessed.  
John 15:27 ESV 

And you also will bear witness, because you have been with
me from the beginning

Author: Joshua Haltom

Course: Experience and Expression


My family was truly engraved by the fullest desire of my
soul.  I believe that, of course,
everyone reaps exactly what they sow. 
So, this essay is about the divine forming of my still blooming
family.  My submission to the unity
consciousness is a walk still becoming everyday more and more well directed by
this creative nature I call bestowal.  It
began when I was 13 years old, and having been a regular guest at the local
Baptist congregation, I listened attentively to the message of Jesus saying,
“Ask whatsoever you will in my Name, and you shall have it.”  And, so, almost on a lark, I made my way alone
down to the Alter  (word he used to describe Altar). 

As a teenager, I could not fully comprehend how such a
promise could be possible, but it made sense to my budding metaphysical
understandings, which I cannot expound upon so fully here.  So, I forced a few tears to come from my eyes
as I considered the implications of the Creator of the universe coming in human
form, suffering, being pierced, dying and being resurrected in order to advance
the correction of the world.  This truth
was, and still is, certainly inspirational.

There I was, ready to make what I now know was a conditional
commitment for my service.  I asked God
the Father, “if” what I have heard here is really for me, “then” I ask you for
a sign.  In prayer, I uttered silently my
heart’s desire, which was to merit being with my true soul mate forever.  And so, I started to imagine who she could
be.  There was then a song by a rapper
Ludacris that was popular, and the line that stood out to me was “we want a
lady in the streets but a freak in the bed.” 
Maybe it was my teenage hormones thinking about such things, so as an
alternative, I requested “if” it is not the sovereign will of the Creator,
“then,” I would like to be a famous musician and die at age 27. 
I thought, as long as I can receive whatever
I ask for, I might as well lay it all out here, just in case. 

Now, I can see that God is the producer of this movie called
life, and the producer is charge over the director, not the other way
around.  Not long after this, I continued
to live for myself only, and just so happened to be involved in a tragic auto accident
wherein I almost lost my life.  Then, for
about a decade after having woken up from a coma, I was wandering in a hazy
state, and experimenting with various drugs. 
I did try my hand in music with only minimal success.  Since, after trying a few times to be an
employee, I applied for and began receiving Social Security Disability Income
due to the traumatic brain injury, I stayed at home a lot.  Most of my time was spent on the world-wide
web in Yahoo! Christian chat-rooms discussing what was still so very sacred to

After about 7 or 8 years of doing this daily, finally, at
age 27, I met a lady whose name happens to be Lady.  We met after she was praising God, someone
ridiculed her, I defended her, and she messaged me in private to say thank you.
 We talked most everyday afterwards and
we each found love.  After a lot much
paperwork for the government and much waiting, I flew to the Philippines to
meet her and her family.  About a year
later, she flew to Tennessee, and we were married on March 19, 2013.  I had made my way to the Alter again, but
this time I was not alone.  It was a
beautiful wedding.

In conclusion, the difference my wife has made in my life is
all the better.  We have a newly born,
wonderful little bundle of joy, our daughter Abigail Exodus.  Abigail is by definition, “father’s joy,’’
and Exodus means out of exile.  The Alter
is not a strange place for me anymore, nor is it foreign to any of us.  We lead the worship ministry in a church that
is just beginning to grow.  Our daughter
is truly anointed by the Lord, and we are acting together to make the world
ever more suitable for her to express her undeniable joy.


Quest Nutrition Protein Bar: Double Chocolate Chunk & Coconut Cashew Review

“It’s the best protein bar I ever tasted.”  This was the words used by my husband (Joshua) right after I asked him the question if he like the Coconut-Cashew flavored Quest Bar.

Just this afternoon we received a package from Quest Nutrition through FedEx.  The package contained a free samples of Coconut Cashew-Single Bar and Double Chocolate Chunk-Single Bar.  The items were packed in a very intriguing rectangular black-box in which the other side was printed with a thought provoking statement in a white and red bold ink saying, “You Are Intense, You Are Obsessed, You are Not Normal” as shown in the picture below.   

While the other side of the box were printed with a radically encouraging words like, “You Are Better Today Than You Were Yesterday, You Do What Others Will Not (true with Joshua and I), You Control Your Destiny. Well designed packaging!

Since it was our snack time when it was delivered, we immediately opened the box and had it with a cup of freshly brewed coffee…for Joshua it was perfectly matched!

I didn’t considered myself as a protein bar lover like my husband but I am an occasional chocolate lover.  The moment I opened my personally picked Double Chocolate Chunk bar, I immediately smelled the chocolaty flavor of a dark looking brownie bar.   The texture was rich-chewy and I even felt those small chocolate chunks in my tongue.  

Unlike the regular super-sweet chocolate bar sold in the US, this one was more of a bitter-sweet-salty and it took a while for my taste buds to like how it was formulated.  I love the fact that a protein bar that only weighed 0.13 lbs. supplied 20 grams of protein to my diet and only added 3 grams of active carb,  plus it didn’t stick in my hands while I was eating it unlike other protein bar that almost glued to my fingers.   

I also tried the Coconut Cashew-Single Bar.   The natural-richly coco and nutty flavoring tastes were there but it didn’t become my favorite.  I love the fresh coconut juice and fresh coconut meat but not as a protein bar flavoring.  Eating eat made me remembered the home made coconut oil of my grand mother for her hair nourishment. 

In the product description in their website,  both of these protein bars was sweetened with Stevia Extract and Erythritol.  According to their customer service support named Giselle, Stevia is a natural sweetener that comes from the leaves of the Stevia plant.  Erythritol
is a sugar alcohol that derives from normal table sugar which has had
the calories extracted, leaving the sweetness without the calories.”  
Smart right?  

These bars are designed and good to buy by consumers who love to eat healthy and at the same time enjoyed what they are eating.  As they said, #CheatClean today!

Here are the ingredients of Double Chocolate Chunk bar:   Protein Blend (Whey Protein Isolate, Milk Protein Isolate),
Isomalto-Oligosaccharides* (Prebiotic Fiber), Erythritol, Water,
Unsweetened Chocolate, Almonds, Cocoa, Cocoa Butter. Contains less than

Dollar Tree, “Store and Product Review”

It’s always good to be involved into something that I always love doing mostly with my husband’s (Joshua) help and support.   It made me more fulfilled in terms of achieving goals (whether it is small or big scale) once it comes into fruition.

These past days, I been asking Joshua to accompany me to once again re-visit and shop at the, “Dollar Tree.” Of course, he said yes and we both agreed to scheduled it one day of this month which happened today.  

I was extra excited.  In my mind I knew exactly what kind of stuff we need to get for our home and the things we need for a friend’s baby shower.  We involved ourselves in organizing a baby shower and we are handling the decorations and program.  

Three reasons why our family love going back to Dollar Tree:

1.  Affordability of the price (which was our main reason).   All of the products literally priced after its store’s name.  Can you imagine that?  Once you visit their website, their business tag name, boldly stated, “Dollar Tree everything’s $1 (dollar).”  
2.  Product creativity (for party supplies).   If you are a kind that is willing to spend a dollar in buying party needs than following a step-by-step directions on how-to-do a craft online,  then pay a visit to their nearest store.  They mostly have all the decorations supplies for any kind of your party needs like baby shower, birthday, balloons & accessories, party favors and games, decorations, catering supplies & tableware and etc. 

Invitation card for a friend’s baby shower.  (Price: $1 each)

3. Accessibility and neatness of the store itself. 
I love the interior design of the store.  Its green (relaxing to the
eyes).  Also the products that are being sold inside accentuate and
decorate the whole store floor area.  

Party & Toys Section

4.  One-stop home basic needs shop.  Aside of fulfilling your party needs,  they also sell household products for kitchen and dining,  bed & bath, home decors, home electronics down to pet food.  

Plastic Cutlery for our home (Price: $1)
Epsom Salt (Price: $1)

Light bulb & Electrical Tape

The only product that I will say I ended up not being satisfied using was the electrical tape.   We used it to repair and covered the ripped sofa cover.  At first it adhered but after a few minutes, it started tearing off.  Using an electrical tape was my own idea, thinking it might work.  I will not suggest using an electrical tape in repairing a vinyl sofa covering.  In the first place, electrical tape is used by electricians and home repair expert to insulate wires and complete electrical pairs cited from  So Mom’s, its really a BIG No, No!
