The smart watch U10L works with your smartphone. Here's a list of things it is advertised to do. We found that some of them work and some really don't.

Smoke Melatonin? Why, yes!

inhalable melatonin
Have you ever taken melatonin to aid in your sleep? How about smoking it? Okay, well...vaping. Nutro-vape inhalable sleep aid has ZERO nicotine and tastes great. Plus, it doesn't have to go through your entire digestive system to work. 

We always keep melatonin in our house, so when I got the chance to try Nutrovape sleep aid I jumped right on it. I've never been a smoker but Mitch vapes. I had a little vape envy (don't ask me why). I was a little worried that it might burn my throat or make me cough. I worried for nothing. It tastes great and works fast. I really, really love the results I got. I slept so well, and when I got up at night to use the bathroom, I was able to get right back to sleep. (Something I can't do on my own.)

You're allowed 5 puffs per hour, but you inhale this right before bed, so you don't need more than five puffs per night. I never smoked so I can't say how it compares in size and feel to a cigarette, but it seems like they would be about the same size. When you take a puff, the end lights up to let you know you are getting the vapor. 

Downside? It only lasts about two weeks, but it is advertised to last four. Bummer. I would still buy more even though it only lasts two weeks though. When I went to amazon to make a purchase they were currently out. Look like other people like it too! Now that you know how it works, why not give it a try. You'll sleep great.

Disclosure: I was given this product at a deep discount in exchange for an honest review.

Help For Low-Carb Constipation

When you eat a really low-carb diet, like the ketogenic diet I'm currently doing (and loving) its difficult to get enough fiber in your diet. All that delicious cheese doesn't help either. Many people experience constipation. Here's what I do to beat it.

One thing about having a blog with health as one of the topics is you end up talking about some things that aren't so pleasant, like constipation. Nobody wants to talk about that! Well, except the people wondering how to deal with it in a way that does not compromise their diet. Low-carb diets notoriously cause it, and extremely low-carb diets like the ketogenic diet I'm on are even worse. There's just not a way to get enough fiber, no matter how many green leafy veggies you eat. (Honestly I don't eat a lot because you'd be surprised how many carbs are actually in them.)
