Redd Remedies Introduces New Cardiovascular Health Support Supplement


Redd Remedies is introducing its new cardiovascular health support supplement, Heart Strong™, to promote overall cardiovascular strength at the start of next month!

The heart is the center of the cardiovascular system. It is vitally responsible for just about everything that gives life to the body, ranging from the transportation of oxygen to the success of the immune system. However, because of lifestyle activities and food choices, an increasing number of Americans are facing heart health issues. According to a recent report by the American Heart Association (AHA), more than 2,200 Americans die of cardiovascular diseases each day, with an average of one death occurring every 39 seconds.

Responding to this growing need for a workable solution, Redd Remedies®—a leading provider of natural, condition-specific, health and wellness supplements—is introducing its new cardiovascular health support supplement, Heart Strong™, to promote overall cardiovascular strength.

Heart Strong is scientifically-formulated to provide targeted nutrients to support energy creation within the heart muscle, enabling it to help maintain a healthy cardiovascular function and defend the cardiovascular system against stress. By taking two tablets a day, Heart Strong’s unique blend of magnesium, Acetyl L-carnitine, CoQ10, and adaptogenic properties such as White Panax ginseng, Hawthorn berry leaf and flower, and Arjuna helps support healthy heart muscle function by reinforcing heart muscle contractions and supporting healthy blood flow.*

“The ingredients in Heart Strong have been shown in many studies to support healthy blood flow, promote vascular muscle function, and to promote energy creation within the heart,” says Dan Chapman, Founder and CEO of Redd Remedies. “A healthy and active lifestyle reinforced by daily intake of Heart Strong may help make cardiovascular health issues a thing of the past.”

These words drive our passion to create holistic, natural health and wellness solutions. Redd Remedies is committed to providing you and your family with an effective selection of high quality, natural supplements.

Hair Styles from Johnathan Breitung Salon & Luxury Spa

It’s that time of year again! As the 2012 holiday season approaches, fashionistas may want to consider updating their hairstyle from the tousled waves rocked on the beach to sleeker, more sophisticated looks that can be paired with your holiday party attire. Johnathan Breitung, owner of the Johnathan Breitung Salon & Luxury Spa explains the following hot hair trends for this holiday season.



1. Ultra Glossy Chignon

To get this sleek and stylish look start with blow-drying hair away from the face while using a texturizing spray. Once hair is dried, brush into a high ponytail forming a large loop. Tease hair at the elastic band and finish by pinning the sides and bottom of the loop your head creating a large bun.







2. Poufy Bun
To get this elegant yet quick and easy do focus on having a less is more attitude. Start by teasing hair at the scalp and then pull back to form a simple bun. Once the bun has been secured it is time to finish off the style with a simple headband. Sticking with a simple color, like black or brown, is the best choice so it does not distract from the stylish do.







3. Old Hollywood Glamour

Achieve this look either with a low up-do, or wear hair down and do loose, full waves, do a drastic side part for both looks. To create the low up-do, after blow drying hair fully, use a one inch curling iron to achieve full waves. Once the curling is finished pin up your hair at the bottom of your hairline to complete this never failing look.






4. Super Sleek

Straight hair is always in style. The beauty with styling a straight hair look is that it can be achieved with or without bangs. Blow dry hair with a round brush and part either down the middle or on the side. Finish the look by applying a smoothing product to look sleek and stylish!

World Vision Helps Launch Giving Tuesday By Encouraging Virtual Volunteerism

New survey indicates fewer Americans plan to give a charitable gift this year as a holiday present


Today is Giving Tuesday, a new day designated for giving rather than getting. After four days focused on holiday shopping, the goal of Giving Tuesday is simple; let's all give back together. Christian humanitarian organization World Vision is joining nearly two thousand organizations nationwide challenging Americans to take part in the new national movement. While participating organizations have each created their own project to give back, World Vision is uniquely encouraging several virtual volunteerism activities.

“Giving Tuesday is intended to open the holiday season on a philanthropic note and put heart back into the holidays,” says Sarah Renusch, World Vision’s Gift Catalog Director. “World Vision knows not everyone is able to take off work to physically volunteer, but we still are encouraging volunteers to give virtually by donating food, clothing, and a number of life-changing gifts online through World Vision.”

To help those affected by Superstorm Sandy, during the week of November 26, any gift of food, clothing, or school supplies for children in the U.S. given through World Vision’s Gift Catalog (www.worldvisiongifts.org) will be designated for the Christian humanitarian agency’s Sandy relief efforts. World Vision relief teams have been distributing much-needed supplies in some of the most vulnerable communities hit by this devastating storm on the East Coast.

Giving Tuesday comes at a much needed time. A new World Vision Holiday Giving Survey, conducted by Harris Interactive, shows fewer Americans plan to give a charitable gift as a holiday present this year. In 2011, about half of U.S. adults (51%) agreed that, as a result of the current economic climate, they’d be “more likely” to give a charitable gift as a holiday present. This year, that percentage dropped to 45 percent. Meantime the survey also indicates that overall holiday spending could be up this year. Last year, 7 out of 10 (71%) Americans said they planned to spend less on holiday gifts as a result of the economic climate, yet this year, the number has dropped to 59 percent. Infographic here: (http://ow.ly/1PGe4A)

“World Vision is encouraged that our economy seems to be showing signs of improvement,” says Renusch. “Yet it is troubling to learn that shoppers aren’t planning to be as charitable as they’ve been in years past. To us, that means we could see a significant drop in the number of families and children being helped this year who truly do need assistance. If there is a silver lining,” Renusch adds, it’s that more than eight out of ten (83%) say they’d prefer to receive a meaningful gift that would help someone else instead of a traditional gift like clothing or electronics.”

There are many ways to participate in Giving Tuesday:

•Volunteer Virtually: Not everyone is able to take off work to physically volunteer, but you can volunteer virtually by donating food kits online through World Vision. Each ‘kit’ contains enough food to feed a family of five for one day ($16 per kit). During the week of Giving Tuesday (November 26 – December 2nd) food kits, clothing and school supplies in the U.S. given through World Vision’s Gift Catalog will be donated to those in need impacted by Superstorm Sandy.

• Give a Meaningful Gift: Share the spirit of Giving Tuesday by giving a gift that can change a life. World Vision’s Gift Catalog has hundreds of gifts such as goats, fresh water wells, and life- saving medicines that can be given in the name of a family member, teacher, co-worker or child and help one of more than 825,000 people around the world who benefit from gift catalog items. Gifts range in price from $16 to $39,000, and there are more than 250 items online to choose from. After purchasing a Gift Catalog item, the person whose name the gift was given in, can receive a special card describing the gift and its impact.

•Teach Generosity: Giving Tuesday is a great opportunity for parents, grandparents, and teachers to help children understand the importance of generosity and giving to others. World Vision’s Gift Catalog can be a helpful educational tool. The Pendleton family, of Colorado, adopted their son from Kazakhstan. When he saw the Mongolian Ger in the catalog, he immediately wanted to buy one for people in his homeland. “I didn’t know how to explain to a 10-year-old that $1,862 is a lot of money, so I didn’t,” said mom Amy. “And sure enough, he raised it all!”

To learn more about World Vision’s Gift Catalog visit www.worldvisiongifts.org or call (888) 511-6511. This year marks the 17th annual edition of the catalog. Since 1996 the catalog’s popularity as a gift-giving alternative has grown with more than 160,000 purchases last year raising over $33 million that helped more than 825,000 people around the world.
