Cranberry SuperBREEZER

Better known as the "Superfruit" and the "The Thanksgiving Peacock", cranberry is high in antioxidants and nutrient contents. Raw cranberries have moderate levels of Vitamin C, dietary fiber and the essential dietary mineral, manganese, as well as a balance profile of other essential micronutrients.  Research indicates they may reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, urinary tract infections, gum disease and ulcers.

Cranberry juice happens to be my favorite due to its lush magenta color and its oomph factor. The little berries always pack a nutritional punch.
Cranberries are grown in the northeastern United States, Wisconsin, Washington and Oregon, as well as in Canada. Massachusetts has the oldest cranberry story — some vines date to the time of the Pilgrims. When colonists arrived in North America, they found a cranberry that was twice the size of the berries they were used to back in Europe, though just as tasty. (America has been super-sizing portions from the very start.) Today, Wisconsin is the country's leading cranberry producer.

Cranberries are perfect, edible jewels. They turn any drink into a showstopper. Raw cranberries are mouth-puckeringly sour, which is why they're almost always paired with sugar or some other sweetener such as maple syrup.

I lost my alcohol virginity to the Bacardi Cranberry Breezer and trust me when I say IT-WAS-TOTALLY-WORTH-IT. I was always skeptical about how alcohol would taste and refrained from drinking. My friends told me that all of them tastes like a tonic. Boy! Cranberry breezer was so damn different and amazingly appetizing. It became my favorite drink instantly and I just couldn't get enough of it. It is perfectly smooth and the flavor is totally balanced. Other flavors don't even come close to it. 
It's the perfect combination of taste and looks. I'll recommend each and every person who wants to have some fun and chill out to try and start with a Bacardi Cranberry Breezer. The party will suddenly be rocking if you follow my counsel mate. Cheers!

Growth, KING Style KING Size

"To keep the body in good health is a duty...otherwise we might not be able to keep our mid strong and clear." -Buddha

Ayurveda (Life-knowledge) is referred to as the “mother of all healing systems”.

The Lord hath created medicines (Ayurvedic) out of the earth; and he that is wise will not abhor them. ~Ecclesiasticus 38:4

Ayurveda is not a weird diet and the practitioners are not really tree-hugging woo-woos with an extreme affinity for Mother Nature (they're normal people who take really good care of themselves & their communities). Funny how we make expectations & judgments about things before we even try them.

Ayurveda, though it is our ancient medicine, isn't appreciated by our society. Allopathy has taken over massively. The traditional medicine has lost its sheen over the years. It is not popular today because of lack of funding from the govenrment as well as the private sector. All the money is being spent on allopathic drugs, which have massive side effects.

Ayurveda also plays a vital role in a baby's early growth & development. The aim of any parent is to provide a healthy environment to the child for appropriate nourishment enabling the kid to be able to face the pressures of our increasingly complex lifestyles.

My childhood was under the protection, love and care of my grandmother. Whenever I suffered from common cold, cough, indigestion, stomach pain etc., my grandmother pops into the kitchen and does some magic and the problem vanishes. It's wonderful how without any side effects, we are able to recover with the help of ayurvedic medicine.

It is rightly said:

"I move with the infinite in Nature's power.
I hold the fire of the soul.
I hold life and healing."
-Rig Veda

Childcare is a sensitive issue. Side effects of processed and synthetic products easily affect kids. It's always recommended by many doctors and also Home-Doctors (Grandma) to go Natural!

I have seen my sister massaging my 3-year-old niece with Dabur Lal Tail, which helps in strengthening baby's bones and muscles and is proven safe and effective for better overall physical growth of babies. She even uses Dabur Gripe Water, which guards the baby against common stomach problems like afara, aitten, indigestion and acidity. I can clearly see her growth.

I myself use Dabur Badam Tail, which helps in making my skin soft & glowing and also makes hair strong & healthy.

Why Dabur? Because for the past 125 years, they have been dedicated to provide nature-based solutions for a healthy and holistic lifestyle.

Ayurveda believes, by supporting the body, one can enjoy living a balanced and harmonious life. It targets to cure the holistic health of a person, instead of treating just the physical body of a person. Ayurveda believes in healing from within.

Because as they say: Health is Wealth.
