Five ailments that can be naturally cured by supplements!

Supplements have long existed to help treat various ailments. They have also been used as the basis of some pharmaceutical companies in developing common medicines. You can find supplements either as tablets, capsules, soft gels or in liquid or powder form. But whether you eat them or drink them, they help add nutritional content to your diet.


Aside from supplying vitamins and minerals that are needed by the body, supplements can also be taken when you are suffering from these ailments.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome – Abdominal pain along with diarrhea or constipation is never a good feeling. It’s a sure sign that there is something wrong with your bowel system. One of the ways that this can be helped is by taking in Psyllium Powder. This can be ingested as a capsule or taken in powder form and mixed into your food or drinks. Psyllium adds fiber to the body to help with the symptoms of constipation as well as diarrhea.

Sleeping Problems – If you’re experiencing difficulty in sleeping then it’s time you consider magnesium supplements. Magnesium is known for its healing properties and this includes sleeping problems. We lose magnesium through certain foods that we eat and drink such as alcohol, caffeine, and some medications. Taking in additional magnesium can help in the production of melatonin, which then helps you sleep better.

Flu – When it comes to treating the flu, check out elderberry supplements. The one responsible for this is an elderberry extract called Sambucol. It helps boost your immune system, thereby preventing the virus to further spread. Flu symptoms are reduced in as early as two days. Plus, they have an anti-inflammatory effect, which helps lessen aches, pains, and fever.

Colds – The common cold is truly a common ailment that has been experienced by most, if not all, people. And when it comes to colds, Vitamin C is one of the most prescribed supplements. It’s available as a pill, tablet, juice, and cough drop as well as in other forms. Taking Vitamin C will help reduce the number of days that you’ll experience colds as well as reduce its severity. So make sure that you take your daily dose but do consult with your doctor first.

Chronic Pain – Cannabidiol (CBD) is making waves in the field of medicine as it is now being identified to potentially treat different types of conditions. But while there are still scientific and clinical studies that have to be done, CBD Crystals have already been used to treat various conditions including chronic pain. CBD Crystals are ingested through vaping or dabbing and you don’t have to wait long to experience the effects. For those who have concerns regarding CBD, you don’t have to worry as these are safe and do not contain any psychoactive elements.

There are a lot of supplements for different types of ailments. Just be sure to check this with your doctor before taking any. And as always, take supplements together with healthy foods. Your health is important, so practice living a healthy lifestyle and say goodbye to these ailments.

Review : Mad Hippie Exfoliating Face Serum!


Last October, I bought Mad Hippie’s Exfoliating face serum from iHerb (Click here to see that haul post). I love serums. That’s no secret. Mad Hippie, though unusually named, is an advanced skincare brand. All of their products have very powerful, natural antioxidant ingredients. The more powerful the ingredients, the better the results are.


I have been using it for about 2 months now and it’s a good time period to judge the product well. This serum contains 16 active ingredients in it. Those 16 ingredients are : Glycolic acid, Vitamin B5, Lactic acid, Matrixyl 3000, Vitamin C, Niacinamide, Sodium hyaluronate, White tea extract, Goji berry extract, PhytocellTec (Apple Stem cells of the rare Swiss apple which have been shown to protect skin cells from age related damages, in combination with a few other ingredients), Gigawhite (A natural blend of six organically grown alpine plants that lessen discoloration by inhibiting melanin production), Melatonin, Caffeine, Biotin, Tocopheryl acetate and Ceramide 3. This product contains no parabens, harmful chemicals, synthetic color or fragrance.

These ingredients work together to help shed dull, damaged skin & discoloration to reveal brighter, smoother skin. Within a couple of weeks, I could see the results!. My skin was visibly brighter. Even my family noticed it when they saw me after a gap of two weeks. There is a bouncy feel to my skin which is really healthy.

The outer packaging has cute floral designs on them. The brand believes in flower power and being close to nature when developing their products. The serum itself, comes in a dark brown glass bottle. It has a dropper, which is one of my favorite kind of packaging for such products. The serum is beige in color. It looks a bit sticky when you dispense it out through the dropper. However, when you apply it onto your face, it isn’t sticky at all. It’s almost liquid like, then. It gets absorbed into the skin, super fast. It smells like apple and coffee mixed together!. Though individually these smells are nice, combined am not a fan of it. So, I am disliking it’s scent however when looking at how amazing the product is, I can live with it!


The bottle contains 30 ml and will last a LONG time. You only need 2 drops each time. I give two long presses on the cap of the dropper. That dispenses enough amount to cover both my face and neck. The liquid consistency is easy to work with and spreads well. I use this every night right before applying an oil. To read my nighttime skincare routine, click here.

Since some of the ingredients in this serum can cause sensitivity to sun, it’s best advised to use it only at night. Use sunscreens, if you like to use it in the morning. I highly recommend this serum. This is one of the best serums I have ever used. It’s not just about having my skin brightened. It’s about the overall feeling of healthy skin that I just love!.

Price : $27.99 (AED 102.81) for a 30ml bottle. It seems really expensive but in the long run (since a bottle lasts really long), it’s a good investment. Also, iHerb has the lowest prices. It’s best to buy from there. Even Mad Hippie’s own website sells these for $34.99 (AED 128.52).

iHerb ships worldwide by the way. It ships from US, ultra fast. Use the code SCZ695 on your first purchase to receive an instant discount of upto $10.
