Dr. Scholl’s® Active Series® Review

I work out every day and nearly always do high-impact activities like running. According to the Dr. Scholl’s Active Series experts, the foot is subject to the shock from impact of 2-3 times your body weight with every step during athletic activity. I received a pair of insoles complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

These insoles are a godsend! Even on long runs they make my sneakers feel cushy and comfy. They provide advanced support for any workout and come in models for both men and women.
Dr. Scholl’s ®Active Series® helps relieve and prevent pain from common sports injuries like runner’s knee and shin splints.

It’s easy to use these:
1. Pull out the insole that came in your shoe.
2. Place it on top of the Active Series® insole and trace the outline.
3. Trim the Active Series® insole on the line you traced.
4. Slip the Active Series® Insole into your shoe.

Re-Body Hunger Chews

I was given the opportunity to try
Re-Body® Hunger Chews™ – Mandarin Orange
(thanks to Naturally Savvy…visit
www.naturallysavvy.com for more info).
These are meant to help control your cravings and, in turn, help control your weight. The “secret” ingredient is Satiereal® Saffron Extract. Each chew is 30 calories and contains 88.5 mg of the extract.
REbodyHungerChews
Honestly, I work out daily and always have a good appetite, so I am not sure that they reduced my cravings. My theory is that food cravings (e.g. chocolate) are often psychological, and I am not sure there is a supplement to solve that issue.
However, I believe the Re-Body® Hunger Chews™ are a high-quality product and not just a scam; using them for a longer duration may indeed prove their efficacy.

The website says: “Studies have shown that after eight weeks of use, participants had a reduced desire to snack, fewer instances of between meal snacking and had an increased feeling of fullness.”
Other Ingredients: Evaporated Cane Juice, Brown Rice Syrup, Natural Flavors, Rice Syrup Solids, Palm Oil, Soy Lecithin, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Silcone Dioxide, Citric Acid, Malic Acid, Glycerin, Natural Color from Fruits and Vegetables
