Electronic Cigarettes: A Basic Guide by Audrey Schroder

Electronic Cigarettes: A Basic Guide
If you’re a smoker, and have been trying to quit, electronic cigarettes could be the answer. An electronic cigarette is basically made of two parts: a cartomizer and a battery. The battery is the longer part of the ecig. When activated, the battery heats the e-liquid to produce vapor.

The cartomizer is the disposable part of the ecig that holds a liquid solution made of flavoring and nicotine. It is the combination of a cartridge and atomizer, and that’s where the name cartomizer comes from. Its built-in coil heats a liquid solution to produce vapor. E-liquid/juice is comprised of propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), food-grade flavoring, and nicotine (optional).

Cartomizers come either pre-filled with e-liquid, or blank. The pre-filled ones are ready to use right out of the package. E-liquid must be added to blank carts.

An ecig battery is the main part of the e-cigarette that provides the power needed to create vapor. They are traditionally long skinny tubes shaped like a cigarette (although there are others that don’t look anything like a cigarette). One end usually has a LED tip that lights up when in use. The other end has a threaded connector that screws into a cart.

There are two different battery activation types – manual and automatic. A manual battery is activated by pressing a small button on the side. They have a cut-off that turns off the battery after a certain time period (10-20 seconds, depending on the type). Automatic batteries are activated by inhalation. When a user sucks in, the atomizer begins heating the e-liquid inside the cartomizer. It turns off when they stop inhaling.electronic cigarets

There are different tips on e-cigarette batteries. Some are covered by a gray-colored ‘ash cap.’ When not in use, the tip is gray. When in use, the tip shows whatever color the LED is on the particular battery. Diamond batteries have a bejeweled sparkly tip covering the LED on this battery style. When in use, the LED lights up to the specific color light inside. The last style is called Stealth. These batteries are made to be less noticeable. There is no LED on the tip, so no light shines whether the battery is turned on or off. They’re good for people who are shy, don’t want to draw attention to themselves, or simply don’t want to get asked questions about their ecig.

If you’re new to electronic cigarettes, disposables are a great way to get introduced. They don’t cost much and will let you experience this smoking alternative without spending a lot of money.

Trusting Your Gut: Steps for Healthy Intestines

Trusting Your Gut: Steps for Healthy Intestines
Digestive health may not be a usual topic of polite conversation but a bit of insight into the real role of the incredible intestinal tract may just change that for good. Trusting your gut is easier after learning some facts about the complex nature of this organ. It is an appreciation for this complexity that provides the best means for creating an intestinal environment most suited to optimal health and well being.

What’s So Special About the Intestinal Tract?

The digestive system is a long and winding road made of several sections performing distinct functions. The term “gut” generally refers to the small intestine, a length of eyelid-thin muscular tubing extending for 18 to 23 feet to connect the stomach to the large intestine. Sandwiched between layers of tissue made from special absorptive cells and muscles, a network of nerves stretches the entire length of the small intestine. The dense innervation of the gut is complemented by and connected to nerves throughout the digestive system. This whole network, known collectively as the enteric nervous system, controls and coordinates the activities of digestion in an effective and highly independent manor. Amazingly, the enteric nervous system actually contains more neuronal connections than the brain! It is also the site in the body with the most serotonin activity. This feel-good neurotransmitter is what helps create a visceral, gut response to emotional situations. intestinal health

Another indispensable element contributing to the complexity of the intestine is its role as home to more microbes than any other part of the body. More than just hangers-on, the complement of beneficial bacteria that colonize the gut are essential for protecting the body from invading microbes and determining the true metabolic activity of the intestine. Imagine for a moment that the gut is like a bank, but instead of one or two customers waiting in the lobby, it is jam-packed with people who’ve decided to take up residence there. A robber at the door would simply be unable to push his way through the crowd of people in order to reach the bank tellers. Not only do the residents passively help keep away intruders but they also change the overall atmosphere of the space with their unique combination of activities. After all, a bank lobby filled with musicians would be quite different than one packed with athletes, gourmet chefs or painters. Similarly, the composition of microbes effects the full complement of activity taking place in the gut. It is now understood that microbial make-up may be the missing link to a number of diseases and disorders including inflammatory bowel diseases such as colitis, Crohn’s disease and leaky gut syndrome. Mounting evidence also points to the importance of intestinal flora in managing body weight and the development of obesity.

Making the Most of Intestinal Intelligence

The precise makeup of microbes populating the intestines is influenced largely by food intake. Probiotics are foods rich in live active bacteria known to make a beneficial part of the intestinal microbiota. More and more strains of Lactobacillus and other probiotics are available in foods such as natural yogurts but may also be ingested in capsule form. Prebiotics are the foods such as inulin and FOS (fructooligosaccharides), items favored by beneficial strains of gut bacteria. By ingesting prebiotic-rich foods, such as yacon syrup, beneficial bacteria receive the support they need to help create a truly healthy bowel. Whether taken alone as a nutritional supplement or used as a low glycemic index sweetener, yacon syrup is a delicious and effective way to promote digestive health.pure yacon syrup

Another tool for building a healthy bowel is saffron extract. This time-tested, scientifically studied herbal extract works wonders to curb appetite. With fewer cravings for gut busting indulgences, establishing a healthy bowel environment becomes both more attainable and sustainable. Saffron also acts to increase serotonin activity, the main neurotransmitter of the intestinal tract. Its calming effect on mind and body makes saffron extract the ideal supplement to stimulate long-last health and well being.

Using saffron extract and yacon syrup a regular part of a comprehensive intestinal health plan can significantly contribute to the intestinal track  health and help avoid digestive discomfort.

Vegan Products Reviews-Vegan cream from Mimilicious

This week I had the opportunity to try Mimilicious.Its a vegan cream made with no soya.I was really pleased , that I had it sent to me to try and review.The cream is made in Devon , the Holy land of Clothed cream in UK  by The Devonshire Klotted Kream Company. If I have to sum it up in a few words the cream is rich and awesome.


vegan cream


Water, pure oats, coconut oil, sunflower spread (sunflower oil, vegetable oils, salt, emulsifier – mono and diglycerides – vitamins E & A, colour – natural carotenes – vitamins D2 & B12) rapeseed lethicin, xanthan gum, vanilla extract, sea salt.

(The  packaging pots are 100% reusable and recyclable, and are dishwasher and freezer safe.)

As soon as the cream arrived I opened the pot, and I had to have a sniff.As you know I wasn’t brought up as a vegan, so I have had cream made from a  cow’s milk.My verdict is, that it tastes better and its also with a nice and cool texture, delivered by the coconut butter in it.

Here is a video, made in my kitchen where I share my thoughts about it. 

When you think of cream , apart from other yummy things I think of scones.This is one of the treats, that I adopted since moving here.Here it is.Lemon zest scones , served with Mimilisious .vegan cream


I don’t know how much you like scones, but if there are not your thing there are many other ways to enjoy this product.You can use it to make a sauce creamy or make a delicious ice cream.To me personally the best part about this product is the fact, that offers an alternative to the cow’s milk cream.

I feel , that a lot of people will be more than happy to use Mimilicious if it was available in any corner shop.I like to recommend anything , that helps you reduce the amount of animal products, that you consume if you are not vegan yet.

Blue Lotus: The Narcotic Flower

Blue Lotus: The Narcotic Flower

Keeping the body stimulated all the times is the common problem of people today, especially the adults since their time is commonly allocated for their family and work, which somewhat results to stress. They can hardly do workout, have a walk, and do other things that are good for the body as well as help in stimulating their systems. What they need to have now is a remedy that has narcotic like effects. Narcotics are substances that affect ones behavior and mood. Unfortunately, most narcotics are illegal. This; however, must not be a hindrance for them. They must also search for remedies that address their problem. One remedy is the Blue Lotus Extract.blue lotus extract

The Blue Lotus extract is a supplement that came from the Blue Lotus flower plant, which is commonly found in Egypt. It is very popular since then as it is a part of the history of the Egyptian people. They have tested the extract and approved its efficacy as it is invigorating and has sexual enhancing effects. This is the reason why some choose to include the extracts in the wine.

The Blue Lotus extract contains an alkaloid known as nuciferin and this is the one responsible for providing the mood-enhancing effects. Today, the flower can also be found in some parts of the world like India and Africa. There are also ready-made extracts developed into supplements so people can conveniently buy them as needed. Unfortunately, there are some sellers who commonly advertise Blue Lotus powder, which do not really contain any nuciferin at all.

Many people use the Blue Lotus extract to treat ailments. It also has several uses such as:

  • Alleviate body pain 
  • Enhance memory
  • Improve blood circulation
  • Enhance sex drive
  • Serve as an aphrodisiac. 
  • Improve mood and behavior

Blue Lotus Extract is a very good alternative to other chemicals used in smoking because it is an upper and does not cause depression. In addition, some say that Blue Lotus is effective in treating migraine, tinnitus, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Plenty of biological studies also prove blue lotus as a plant that is quite similar to Gingko in terms of the number of flavonoids.

Effects of Using Blue Lotus Extract
For so many years, there were no recorded serious side effects associated with using the Blue Lotus Extract. The effects are usually mild, and this is why this product can easily be utilized first time users. This is also not addicting. This will just give you a relaxing effect, and it is not expensive as well.

The advisable dosage for Blue Lotus is two times a day only – one in the morning and one at night. It must be taken in drops – 6 to 10 drops together with water or juice.

Safety Information
Though there are no severe interactions relating to the use of Blue Lotus extract, it must also be taken appropriately as suggested. However, it is not advisable for women who are pregnant and nursing, as well as minor children and people who have organ disorders.
