Most of us try to pay attention to what we put in our bodies. From the foods we eat to the beverages we drink, it’s important to know what ingredients are used in the things we consume. That being said, have you ever stopped and looked at what is used to make your toothpaste? What about your children’s dental products? If you stopped and read the labels, you would be shocked!
That’s why I am recommending the oral hygiene products from Jack n’ Jill. Their toothpaste is safe for children to use because it is 100 percent natural and made with organic flavors. I love this company because they also believe that they have an obligation to protecting the environment. That’s why they formulated their hypoallergenic toothpaste and used organic ingredients. This company has also designed the packaging to be minimal, recyclable and BPA Free. How cool is that? Along with the toothpaste, their toothbrushes are made of non-GMO cornstarch. This makes them biodegradable and recyclable. I just love that!
I recently had the pleasure of trying out two of the Jack n’ Jill toothpastes. The first was the strawberry flavor and let me tell you….it was very yummy! Like their other products, this toothpaste is fluoride free, sugar free, color free, and SLS free. Best of all? It does not contain any preservatives! Another one of their fabulous toothpastes is the blackcurrant flavor. It’s rich in Xylitol and contains organic calendula to help soothe the mouth. It’s also bursting with flavor…your kids will love it! And yes, grown-ups can use these products too.

It doesn’t get any better than enjoying a pumpkin smoothie on a blustery fall day. The delicious flavors help you feel warm on the inside while the nutrients work to keep you healthy and happy. But not all smoothies are created equal…I have a new favorite ingredient that really pumps up the nutrition factor. Meet my latest obsession…Aduna Baobab Superfruit Powder.
What is baobab? It’s an amazing super food grown on the baobab tree in the African Savannah. Known as “the tree of life”, the baobab tree produces a nutrient-dense fruit loaded with fiber, vitamin C, and other essential vitamins and minerals. Aduna Baobab Superfruit Powder is 100 percent organic and helps to support energy metabolism and the immune system. It also works to boost energy levels in your body naturally! Baobab has one of the highest antioxidant capacities of any fruit in the world. Would you believe it contains five times the antioxidants of fresh acai berries and twice that of goji berries? This makes it an amazing addition to your daily diet, especially during cold and flu season.
Not only does Aduna sell this amazing product, they are a company that truly cares for the good of the world. Aduna works in partnership with a grass roots organization to harvest and collect the fruit from women’s cooperatives in eleven remote rural communities. They make sure that the workers are always paid a fair price for their work efforts, helping to support the local communities.
How do you include Aduna Baobab Superfruit Powder in you daily diet? You can add it to baked goods, salad dressings, smoothies, juices…just about everything! If you are a smoothie fan, here’s a delicious recipe to get you started:
Baobab Fall Pumpkin Smoothie
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 cup almond milk
- 3 or 4 large figs (fresh or frozen)
- 1/2 granny smith apple
- 1 tsp raw honey
- 2 tsp Aduna Baobab Superfruit Powder
- 1 Tbsp chia seeds
Add all these ingredients to your blender and you are good to go!
