Gungho for Brain Focus/Health Supplement – Review Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Hi friends, I am in love with this Product I just sampled called GungHo, a real scientific breakthrough (in my humble opinion) of Brain Health, Focus, and recall. As I read up on GungHo, preparing for my samples to arrive, I was very impressed with all the studies and the work of the PHD’s on developing a safer, more effective and actually long term brain health of this product.

But we all know “the proof is in the pudding”

Hai. (that's Ninja for hello) on the cardboard cover from GungHo ("For Ninja Like Focus")

My 3 sample packets of GungHo arrived safe and sound to my home, it is packaged in the most brilliant folded cardboard, full of great information and some good laughs too. Speaking of laughs, who ever heard of a Focus Supplement that gave you energy and yet improved your mood? I hadn’t until I was introduced to GungHo and for me this statement by the company is true! Alas I am rambling again… lets get back on topic here. Lol

Yes, as many of you know from past reviews, I have ADD and sure enough I show it often in my struggle to write reviews and if my ADD is acting up terribly, my dyslexia comes out more as well, making writing a real chore. Add in my CFS (Chronic Fatique Syndrome), Fibromyalgia (which often creates something called β€œFibro-Fog”) and you have yourself a but you folks are kind enough to bear with me. Now on with the show… lol

My Packets of Gungho

My GungHo Challenge:

1. Avoid energy drinks / shots or sodas for 3 days (so you don’t crash from them)
2. When you are tired, take a GungHoR instead – convenient tiny liquid packet can take with you anywhere
3. You will note a smooth boost of energy & focus with no jitters or crash

“* Over time, GungHoR will also build brain health, capacity to focus and memory recall…but you won’t notice that in 3 days”

The above is a qoute from GungHo on the Challenge I accepted

The Challenge, how I got started:

We ran out of soda in the house and coffee for a while (we shop once a month with our disability checks, so this happens from time to time) and it was the perfect time to take the challenge! So no caffeine, sodas or energy drinks… just water on hand for a week. I went 3 days with just water, then I did a 2 day test (I gave my husband one to try too)… okay so I cheated on my challenge, by sharing… however my Mommy taught me to share and it has stuck with me. lol

I did start getting a headache for the first day without soda or caffeine… but it soon went away with some generic Aleve that I had on hand.

My thoughts on Gungho:

I have run out of my GungHo and I am saddened by this, as it really did help me stay focused on the tasks at hand here, I can get so distracted by the Boob-Tube (which is almost always on here, since my husband has become disabled recently, so he’s home all the time)… and of course the demand of the blog, the keeping up with social media, emails and my 2 cuddly dogs demanding attention. The GungHo has helped me focus on one thing at a time and I just have to say, you need to try this to believe it!

On GungHo I am relaxed, yet more focused, I am energized but not shaky and I feel a sort of sense of wellness… a satisfied feeling that I cannot describe as anything else other than a cheerful disposition. Amazing the balance that has been achieved in this formulation and how completely they covered all the bases of this unique product, I’ve never experienced this before like I did with GungHo.

As I mentioned before, I shared one of the packets with my husband, he felt a little difference but being a man of few words he didn’t tell me much more than energized some and a feeling of the focus some as well.

Now the long term effects that are mentioned by GungHo, are brain health building… this is with longer term/daily use of GungHo and I would be tempted to keep a stash on hand for daily use, had I had the means to do so… with my very limited trial I am pleased!

Gungho Real Brain Science Information

Who would I recommend this product for?

Mothers, we know how draining just being a Mother can be!

Students, oh yes, as I always recommend with studying, take it as you study and then make sure to take it as you do your testing (the studies have all shown you must be in the same state as when you were studying for better recall when you are testing or public speaking for that matter).

Gamers, as some of you know, until I started blogging, I was an avid gamer since the 1990’s, and I really could have used this when my group would be in highly dangerous game areas and I was stuck spamming out heals constantly. Yes I always played the supporting role of a healer, it’s hard work, but really beneficial to most power gamers out there.

And those that have trying work/jobs, be it physical, mental or that have demonstrations or public speaking involved etc.

I would have loved this while working as a Cosmetologist and during memorizing lines and preforming in plays.

Now one of you can take the GungHo Challange for yourself, enter to win your own 3 pack sample of GungHo

Wordless Wednesday – Windy Tuesday

Here we go with another Wordless Wednesday, we had a lot of excitement in the neighborhood yesterday. A street light that stood in our next door neighbors yard blew down. So much excitement, on a Windy Tuesday, Police, firemen, and Electric Company. I was foolish enough to get extra close for some good shots, before I thought about the voltage running through the still live wires on the street light.

Wordless Wednesday Windy Tuesday 1 Wordless Wednesday Windy Tuesday 2 Wordless Wednesday Windy Tuesday 3 Wordless Wednesday Windy Tuesday 4 Wordless Wednesday Windy Tuesday 5 Wordless Wednesday Windy Tuesday 6Well, up too late at night, still in pain from the windy day and now I guess we are expecting snow now. πŸ™ I can’t wait until spring, had it not been for those wild winds yesterday, it would have felt like it was almost spring. As you can see in the pictures hardly any snow remains from our last storm.

Have a wonderful Wednesday my friends, this wordy gal is signing off and going to bed… I just wanted to get my Wordless Wednesday post up and running. πŸ™‚

Add Vitamin C Serum to your Anti-Aging Arsenal

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Vitamin C Serum Perfect for Anti-Aging

Β Mariah's Lets Talk Beauty, Vitamin C Serum by La Beaute Pure

Hi all, I was lucky enough to receive Vitamin C Serum, from La Beaute Pure, for hubby and I to use. I have so say that the shipping was very speedy and the packaging was secure in bubble wrap, no breakage at all (like some products I received in the past in glass containers)… so I was happy when I opened up the package and saw to my surprise the container is nice brown glass.

The brown glass of the bottle, as with any product, is an indication of a product that is best kept out of the light and should be placed in a closed cabinet, cupboard, draw, you name it. Why is it perfect for this product? Vitamin C can be unstable, but it’s one of the newest products in our Anti-Aging Arsenal, as finally they found a way to stabilize vitamin c for skin care.

This product comes with a dropper… now careful about exposure to the air, close tightly and when you go to squeeze the bulb of the eyedropper, squeeze it outside of the bottle before you dip it in to have is suck up the product… The Air (namely Oxygen) can diminish the effectiveness of the product, just like exposure to light can


Though this product is not advertised for this purpose, I believe that this product also helps with Adult Acne, as I’ve been using products with the same Vitamin C (Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate) in them and it seemed to help my Adult Acne, as my system has decided to go into Peri – Menopausal, the hormone changes (as well as the sweats) seemed to make me break out for a while, this changed a few months ago when I started using products with Vitamin C in it on my skin. And since Vitamin C is anti-bacterial, I know that it should help with the skins inflammation caused by the bacteria in acne.

Vitamin C Serum bottle & dropper
Inside the bubble wrapped I found individually wrapped Vitamin C Serum and a Dropper.

While using Vitamin C, it may take a while to see improvement, but it is said to help with your production of Collagen and Elastin, which helps with wrinkles, firming the skin, and fading skin discolorations (such as dark spots, freckles, liver spots, age spots) from sun exposure too. Basically help your skin recover from sun exposure and help reverse the signs of aging. And more pluses, Vitamin C has been shown to be an Anti-Oxidant for the skin.

What does La Beaute Pure Say about their product? Here is a quote:


Organic Vitamin C Serum: Dr. Oz Recommended for Healthy Beautiful Skin

You eat an organic diet, use an organic skincare
-Fades sunspots, dark spots & discolorations
-Prevents free radicals
-Helps Collagen tighten skin
-Fine lines & wrinkles are less noticeable within 2-6 months (results vary)
-Works for up to 72 hours: Does not wash off

Vitamin C Serum with dropper in it.

Now I haven’t used this product long enough to tell you how it works for me, or for my husband. But what I can tell you is that the Vitamin C Serum is 98% Naturally Derived & 72% Organic! Nice! The Vitamin C is #3 on the list of ingredients so it seems not to be overly diluted (I would tell you what % the Vitamin C is, but I failed to ask the company, sorry, but if I receive this information, I will include in a review of results on my skin as well as my husband’s in a few months.) I love the fact that this product has Aloe in it… I believe that this is why, when I am using it, it didn’t sting like the skin care line I’ve been using for several months does.

Vitamin C Serum Picture

How to use The Vitamin C Serum:

Make sure that prior to use that you read the instructions on the bottle. You should use this product on freshly washed and toned skin. Wait until you Vitamin C Serum is dry to apply your moisturizer. And a side note, WEAR SUNSCREEN every day… it’s important to be careful in the sun while using this product. I recommend an SPF higher than a 15… best be careful and not be sorry. With using Vitamin C Serum your skin may become susceptible to sunburn & sun damage, counter productive to what you are trying to do with the Serum… so wear that Sunscreen my beauties!

Oh and another note, I picked up my Vitamin C Serum by La Beaute Pure on! πŸ™‚
