Boost your immunity this flu season with FloraPro!

While probiotics cannot cure a cold or the flu, they can support your immune system in ways that reduce your risk of getting sick from contagious illnesses. Research shows that probiotics can help prevent flu and reduce not only your symptoms, but also the length of illness.

With 80 percent of our immune cells located in or near the gut, our digestive systems are critical for optimal health. FloraPro contains good bacteria which supports not only vaginal health but also the normal functioning of the digestive system. This aids in the absorption of nutrients as well as helps your healthy gut bacteria to thrive.

Though probiotics can be found in fermented foods and yogurt, commercially prepared foods often don’t provide high enough amounts of good bacteria to offer true health benefits. FloraPro can help optimize your immune system this cold and flu season with once a day therapy. Be sure that your significant other is taking FloraPro too! 

If you haven’t already received your flu shot, the CDC says it’s not too late. There is plenty of flu season left this year, so hustle to your doctor or pharmacy, as it takes 10 days post injection to develop immunity.

Alexa’s Daily Health + Beauty Regime with BoriCap

This post is in partnership with BoriCap. I’ve been a fan of the brand and product for a very long time!


 Over the years I’ve heard a constant complain from girl friends of mine. We’ve all been diagnosed with BV, which is just a (very common) situation down there that isn’t fun to deal with. It’s similar to a yeast infection. Actually, it’s the most common infection in women ages 15-44! Through my own personal search over the years, I’ve watched hundreds of videos and read one too many online threads to try and solve this common problem among my friends. It wasn’t until one doctor I saw in Connecticut (my old OBGYN) that I decided to try something new. He suggested I try boric acid. I’d never heard of it before 2 years ago but I was willing and ready to take anything! I came across BoriCap, which is the #1 rated brand and I decided to buy the product on Amazon to test it out myself.

No one is talking about BV, and the people who do online seem to be just as confused as the doctors. I’m not a fan of being on antibiotics for weeks which is all doctors care to prescribe, especially when it comes to BV or cysts. In my opinion, nothing ever works!

I’m not kidding when I say this product changed my life. It’s founded by two women who know way more about female anatomy than any of us and who aren’t just interested in a short-term resolution. When I purchased this product a few years ago I was using it daily because I was so scared BV would keep recurring but after over 1 year of using it I only use the pills sparingly now. Sometimes not even once a month (if that) and I feel completely cleared or if it recurs, I take one of the pills and it’s gone instantly.

I’ve heard that apple cider vinegar is another way to keep your pH in check which isn’t a remedy I’ve tried but keep meaning to. I happen to have a more acidic composition which is why my pH is always out of wack. Knowing where your body is pH wise is a great thing overall because it’ll help you in the future if you’re dealing with any female issues.

Never feel ashamed to talk about something you’re dealing with. Trust me, if you are, 1000s of people out there are too!

Probiotics & Prebiotcs - What's the difference & do you need both?

The quick answer is yes. Prebiotics are indigestible plant fibers that feed the good bacteria that are contained within probiotics. Probiotics are live microorganisms that live inside your gastrointestinal tract promoting overall wellness. Like all living things, probiotics need food in order to remain active and healthy and to benefit you as much as possible. The more food (prebiotics), that these probiotics have to eat, the more efficiently these live bacteria work, and the healthier your gut will be.

Did you know that not only is it important to take daily FloraPro which contains 9 strains of live CFU’s totaling 42.5 billion but you also need to feed those strains with their favorite dietary treats in order to nurture the gut garden you are growing. What foods can you eat to maximize the benefit of FloraPro?
Jerusalem artichoke
When your gut bacteria becomes imbalanced, your body does not function as it should. FloraPro helps replenish the good gut bacteria, keeping you balanced.  This can mean less yeast infections, less bacterial vaginosis, and a stronger immune system.

CranCap supplement from BoriCap can prevent urinary tract infections
Cranberry juice alone doesn’t contain enough proanthocyanidins  to protect urinary health, but the new North American cranberry sourced CranCap supplement from BoriCap can prevent UTIs with a higher concentration of PAC’s.

BETHLEHEM, Pa, September 1, 2019—Women’s health care supplement creator, BoriCap, just released its new North American cranberry sourced CranCap supplement containing 36 mg of proanthocyanidins (PACs), which scientists say boosts urinary tract infection prevention efforts.

CranCap’s release comes alongside news from the United Kingdom’s National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, which sifted through several studies to discover that cranberry juice alone may not contain enough PAC’s to prevent urinary tract infection (UTI).

“It is thought that the amount of proanthocyanidins in plain cranberry juice just isn’t high enough to bolster urinary health by itself,” said Danica Ettle, BoriCap co-owner. “Several studies show that you need a therapeutic dose of 36 mg PAC's to prevent UTI bacteria from adhering to and spreading up through the urinary tract.”

That bacteria, E. coli, is the same microbe responsible for the last years outbreak of gastrointestinal illnesses from contaminated romaine lettuce. When E. coli bacteria enters the urinary tract, it can multiply and spread, causing a urinary tract infection. Without treatment, the bacteria may also cause bladder and kidney infections, as well as sepsis if left untreated.
Although both women and men can suffer UTIs, the National Institutes of Health reports that most of the 10 million Americans who visit their doctors for a UTI are women.  Ettle said that both men and women can use CranCap to prevent urinary tract infections, but that the supplement is not recommended for children. Pregnant or nursing mothers should ask their doctors before taking CranCap.

CranCap’s higher dose of 36 mg PAC's, all of which are natural, North American cranberry  (Vaccinium macrocarpon) sourced, is far more concentrated. It works for adults who need a reliable urinary tract infection prevention aid,” said Ettle. “We certainly agree with the latest recommendations on drinking plenty of water, but for people who have frequent bouts of UTIs and who are concerned about the overuse of antibiotics, CranCap’s high concentration of PACs can support urinary health naturally.”

Having a UTI prevention tool is life changing for those who suffer from chronic problems says Ettle. .She adds that urologists often have patients who are using daily antibiotics for prevention of UTI’s. In addition, some patients take a one dose treatment after intercourse to ward off infections. This is just the tip of the iceberg.  Urinary tract infections (UTI) are one of the most common diagnoses in nursing home residents. 20 - 30% of infections reported in nursing homes are urinary in nature.  People who experience urinary tract infection symptoms should consult their doctors prior to taking  CranCap.
