What is Rhodiola Rosea Root and why I take it

If you’ve never heard about Rhodiola, let me tell you that is most commonly used for increasing energy, endurance, strength, and mental capacity.  It is also used to help the body adapt to and resist physical, chemical, and environmental stress.

Rhodiola Rosea Root grows at 10,000 feet in the Altai Mountains of Siberia. The root when cut gives off the aroma of a rose. Its suitable for Vegetarians, Vegans, Gluten Free, Soy Free & Dairy Free.

I started taking Rhodiola Rosea from Brainpower Nootropics 6 weeks ago as a natural supplement to help me fight common daily stress and I can tell you that I definitely feel the difference.

I’m a very organised person so I tend to accept any tasks coming my way because I can always find time to do them, but what I never do is considering taking time off. Nowadays I’m more conscious about it and I make sure my daily schedule is balanced with work, entertainment and relaxing time off. But for the days that are hard to maintain this balance, taking something natural is a great support.

I always take two capsules a day with water, they don’t replace any of my meals and I make sure I maintain a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and eating a varied, well-balanced diet.

This is only my personal experience, so if you’re considering using Rhodiola I would recommend you to visit the following link so you’re fully informed:

Plant Powered Smoothies| Batch Organics Review

And I’m back at the Gym again! It’s been exactly an year since I stopped going to the gym because I thought that walking daily would be enough. And it’s enough to keep me active but not to keep me fit. There’s nothing like a good workout to make you feel good about myself, so here I am back again, but this time I had to adapt my diet to my new lifestyle.

Since a few months back I’ve decided to slowly give up on meat and that means that I need to get my nutritious needs somewhere else.

I’ve recently found the Plant powered Smoothies from Batch Organics that are 100% organic, gluten free and plant-based. And I thought it’s about time that I tell you guys about it!

I know we don’t have time to be home preparing smoothies, so what if I told you that they deliver really nice cups filled with the right amount of healthy organic frozen fruit, veg and superfoods to your door? And they’re designed to be popped straight into the freezer so that you can use them as and when you need them? Cool, hein?

I take mine sometimes in the morning if I don’t have time to prepare breakfast. Sometimes I have them in the middle of the afternoon when I need an energy boost and the same after a gym session.

So here are the smoothies I’ve tried and you can find different ones on Batch Organics website.

Greens & Ginger – Definitely my favourite, with organic avocado, kale, courgette, ginger, lime, moringa and yacoon root.

Cherry & Charcoal – This one isn’t only delicious but the colour is also amazing, with Organic cherries, blueberries, kale, apple, ginger, rosemary and charcoal.

Kiwi & Bee Pollen – I didn’t enjoy this one, but I’m also not a big fan of mango so I guess it makes sense. It included pineapple, mango, kiwi, papaya, lime, maca, cinamon ashwagandha and bee pollen.

I haven’t tried the Mango & Basil one you can see on the image but it’s on my pans for this evening.
