Anti-Monkey Butt Powder is the perfect stocking stuffer for the active man whether he takes part in physical hobbies or has a job that runs him around. Anti-Monkey Butt Powder is a new product, invented by motocross riders, designed to treat friction and irritation that can result from excess sweat. As you and may or may not know, excessive sweat can cause irritation of the buttocks and inner thighs, also known as “monkey butt”. Unlike other powders, Anti-Monkey Butt has calamine and talc which gives it a cooling sensation instead of the burning that you might get from other products. Anybody who has used those other powders will know what “the burning” is we are referring to. If you’re not sure what to think about this product take a look at the web site. http://www.antimonkeybutt.com It’s got the cutest label and it’s a real product that has a very large following. They have over 15K AntiMonkey Butt fans on their facebook page.
AntiMonkey Butt also has a lady friend – New Lady AntiMonkey Butt – delivers the same great results only made with calamine and cornstarch. Perfect for frictional discomfort that women often experience when using exercise equipment, running, driving, cycling or just walking (even discomfort from bras).
It may sound crazy, but this is the greatest powder. You will instantly be hooked and anyone that receives it in their stocking will be forever grateful to you. Tate is getting it in his. Karate class is sweaty, stinky and he is constantly getting that friction rash from his workouts. He has been using the Anti-Monkey Butt powder for a couple of weeks and says it is the greatest stuff since sliced bread…and since he eats sandwiches several times a day, so he knows what he is talking about!

I sweat. There, I said it. I live in the south…it gets hot here and well, let’s face it…I am not a size 3. Although I wish I was a size 3! But I’m not and I sweat. Certain Dri is the number one over-the-counter antiperspirant recommended by doctors for treating excessive perspiration. New to the Certain Dri line of antiperspirant products is Certain Dri Solid, equally effective and specially-formulated for those with sensitive skin. While other over-the-counter antiperspirants claim to be “clinical strength” and “waterproof” the Certain Dri formulations – 12% aluminum chloride and 25% aluminum sesquichlorohydrate – are the strongest available, providing 72-hours of protection with each application. Retail price is $5.50-$6, almost 40% less than the other clinical strength antiperspirant products. AND, it really works! No…I mean it really, really works. I did the 72 hour test. Yeah, gross…but I wanted to see. And it worked! You gotta try it. It is a must have on my list.
One (1) lucky reader will win one!
4.) Do you or a loved one suffer from allergies? Well, the good news is there’s a new, natural product that can help — PreHistin, the world’s first pre-histamine. I was a little skeptical when I first heard of this product, but it has truly worked wonders for myself and Erin. And we needed it after the crazy weather we have been having. It goes from 60-70 degrees one day to 30 degrees the next. I have roses blooming. And it has just messed with every one’s sinuses and the pollen doesn’t know whether to stay or go.
PreHistin works by regulating and normalizing the release of histamines, which trigger the onset of allergy symptoms. By preventing or reducing the over-production of histamines before they are released, the need to rely on anti-histamines is eliminated (no more drowsiness!). Safe for adults and children 12 years and older, you can begin taking PreHistin cherry lozenges at any time, but it takes several weeks to see optimal results since it works by rebalancing the immune system to maintain a normal response to allergens. PreHistin is effective for both indoor and outdoor allergies, and is safe for long-term use year-round. There are no known adverse side effects, it is totally non-drowsy, and it is completely safe. PreHistin does not affect any medications you may be taking.
PreHistin is available now for $19.95 as an introductory offer for a 30-day supply, with a free additional 1-month supply added as part of the offer (suggested retail price is usually $29.99 for a 30-day supply, so this BOGO offer is a great deal). Three, six and 12 month multi-packs are also available. Products are purchased online at www.prehistin.com or by calling 1-877-4POLLEN.
One (1) lucky reader will win a box of PreHistin (63 cherry lozenges in a blister pack; retail value $29.99).
Lipo-Flavonoid Plus, an all natural nutritional supplement for the treatment of tinnitus (ringing in the ears). This condition is suffered by 50 million men and women in the US and less than half of them seek medical attention and decide to just live with it. And let me tell you…it is enough to drive you up the walls at times. Bric suffers from tinnitus and it even drives me NUTS. Cause it affects his hearing and he is constantly asking me if I hear something that isn’t there or else he hears nothing I say or says “huh?” all the time. So, I am not sure who it affects more…me or him. Lipo-Flavonoid is a nutritional supplement that contains the B complex group of vitamins in a base of lipotropic agents, such as choline, inositol and pantothenic acid, plus vitamin C and bioflavonoids. Lipo-Flavonoid is free of sugar, starch, yeast, wheat, corn milk products and preservatives and is a great natural alternative for people who have tinnitus and need help coping with this condition. According to doctors, patients with tinnitus who used Lipo-Flavonoid as directed have had success with Lipo-Flavonoid (7 out of 10 patients), which provides nutritional support to improve circulation in the inner ear for overall ear health. The exact formulation of ingredients in Lipo-Flavonoid has been tested numerous times in clinical studies on humans and the results have demonstrated relief and improvement in the tinnitus.
Here is a link to a video testimonial from a consumer : http://www.lipoflavonoid.com/Pages/lipo_debbystory She is married and a mother of three and she really put her heart out there. She decided to do this video because she figures if she can help one more person it was worth her time. People can also learn more about the product and tinnitus at www.stopearringing.com.

LIP CLEAR Lysine+: Cold sores are painful, unsightly blisters that form on the lips or just outside the mouth as a result of the herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV1). While many people may carry this virus (it lies dormant in some), upwards of 60 million people get cold sores annually as a result. Cold sores can last for up to two weeks, in some cases, and are very contagious. The virus can be spread through kissing, touching, sharing cups and utensils, towels, etc. Cold sores can be triggered by sunlight, arginine rich foods, fever, illness, stress, food allergies and hormonal changes. In addition to being embarrassing for sufferers, cold sores are often very painful, causing itching, burning and other discomfort.
While there is no cure for HSV1 and the resulting cold sores, the best solution is to heal them as quickly as possible. LIP CLEAR Lysine+ Cold Sore Treatment utilizes the active zinc oxide, as well as lysine – an essential amino acid – and 14 other natural ingredients to help treat cold sores faster; according to a Southern California University of Health Sciences study. It is clinically shown to cut healing time in half, median time to complete cold sore healing was four days, and a remarkable 40% of participants had full cure by end of third day. LIP CLEAR’s unique combination of natural ingredients provides immediate relief from symptomatic burning, itching and tingling upon application. LIP CLEAR Lysine+ is all-natural, has a non-chemical flavor, goes on clear, can be worn under lipstick and doesn’t burn on application. It provides immediate soothing relief of burning and itching.
Suggested retail price is $6.99 for a 7-gram tube; available at drug stores, supermarkets and health food stores nationwide, and online at www.LipClear.com. – Online coupon available, too.

Canker Cover: Canker sores are painful blisters that form on the inside of the mouth, cheeks, and inner lips, as well as on the tongue, affecting 56 million people annually. If left untreated, they can last from seven to 21 days, causing pain each time you eat, drink, chew, or move your mouth. While nobody knows for sure what causes canker sores, possibilities include increased stress, lower immunity, trauma (e.g. cheek bites, irritation from braces, etc.), vitamin B12 or iron deficiencies, hormonal changes or food allergies.
Canker Cover is the only over-the-counter canker sore treatment shown in clinical studies to significantly speed treatment. The pill shaped patch adheres to the sore and forms a gel patch that protects the sore, relieves the pain, and speeds treatment. In two separate clinical studies, Canker Cover was shown to heal most canker sores within 24 hours and to be more effective than benzocaine, the active ingredient in most canker sores products, at eliminating pain. No other canker sore products in the world have shown this result.
Canker Cover is also made from natural ingredients including natural menthol, citrus oil and sea salt, which dissolves over time, offering immediate pain relief upon application while covering and protecting the lesion from bacteria and other irritants (e.g., movement, food, drink, orthodontia/dental appliances, etc.) for eight to 12 hours. Canker Cover provides immediate and long-lasting pain relief by steadily releasing pain-numbing menthol and other ingredients on the sore. In most cases, one patch completely treats a canker sore within 24 hours. Suggested retail price is $9.99 for a box of six patches; available at drug stores, supermarkets and health food stores nationwide, and online at www.cankercover.com. Online coupon available, too.

OraMoist: Dry mouth (xerostomia) is an under-diagnosed condition that affects 10% of the U.S. population, and can have a severe effect on oral health, causing tooth decay, gum disease and bad breath due to lack of oral moisture. Dry mouth is a symptom of several medical conditions, such as Sjogren’s Syndrome and diabetes, for example, and is a common side effect of many prescription and over-the-counter medications. In fact, people taking three or more medications have a 60% chance of suffering from dry mouth, making this a more common occurrence in mature adults.
OraMoist Dry Mouth Patch is a revolutionary, time-released, muco-adhesive patch powered by edible natural ingredients that adheres to the roof of the mouth or inside the cheek. As the patch dissolves over two to four hours, it releases ingredients that help increase saliva production alleviating parched, dry mouth. The increased moisture also helps restore a healthy oral environment, a significant benefit for dry mouth sufferers.
OraMoist Dry Mouth Patch has been clinically proven effective in terms of increased saliva production and improved feeling of moistness. Suggested retail price is $9.99 for a box of 16 patches; available at Rite Aid, Albertson’s LLC and Raley’s, and online at www.oramoist.com. Online coupon available, too.
Parents know what their children’s favorite foods are, what shoe size they wear and what cartoons they like to watch. But, how can we know if they can see correctly?
We’re all on high alert on preventing ourselves and our family from getting the flu this season and the thought of being in tight quarters makes most cringe. That’s why I’m so excited to tell you about MyClyns, a new alcohol-free, germ protection spray that you can immediately use on your face when exposed to harmful pathogens. The non-toxic, non-burning spray contains a fast-acting solution that has shown to reduce more than 60 potentially dangerous germs, including MRSA, staph and E-coli*.
Why It’s Unique: MyClyns is the only germ defense for use in the eyes, nose and mouth – offering protection where you need it most – common entry points for most germs. It is a compact, non-aerosol pump spray shaped like a pen and easy to slip into a pocket, baby bag, purse or carry-on (meets airline restrictions) for everyday use and when traveling. MyClyns is safe to spray directly onto the face and even onto open cuts and abrasions. It’s safe for people of all ages, even those who wear contact lenses. While many other germ sanitizers are good for prevention, MyClyns is designed to be used after the unexpected incident occurs -so if a person sitting in front of you or next to you coughs or sneezes, simply take out your MyClyns and spray 2-3 mists on your face and you’re good to go. Each vial has approximately 60 mists and can be thrown out when it’s empty.
MyClyns is trusted and used by hospitals and first responders (EMS, police, firemen, etc.) – whose contact with germs is often extreme – and is now being made available to consumers to be the perfect complement to hand sanitizers as part of a complete germ-fighting routine. . MyClyns, is sold at CVS stores nationwide along with other chain stores for suggested retail price ranging from $7.99- $9.99. Consumers can stay up to date on the latest from MyClyns, including availability in stores by fanning them on Facebook .
*Independent laboratory tests have shown that the solution in MyClyns demonstrates a 99.99% reduction in more than 60 potentially dangerous pathogens.
