Green tea, broccoli, bran flakes? of course. But hot cocoa?

According to CNN.com Health, the rich sweet goodness in a cup is right up there when it comes to a winning winter diet. That’s some welcome news! Looks like we’re doing things right after all. So drink up, but you might want to hold off on the marshmallows… At ActiveForever, we’re always thinking about your health and ours, so thought we’d bring you this informational little blurb to start your day off right.

While we’ve got you in a health-oriented state of mind, be sure to check out our luxurious skin care products in honor of National Healthy Skin Month. There’s nothing like showing the harsh winter weather who’s boss by pampering your largest and arguably most precious organ this time of year. Women especially need to take heed as they have a thinner, drier dermis than that of their male counterparts. Barrier creams reinforce the skin’s natural shield and prevent precious moisture from exiting the skin’s surface.

‘Tis the season, so all of our winter products are moving fast, especially where attire is concerned. Our collection of heated and insulated clothing is material proof that you really can be stylish and comfortable at the same time.

So, grab some walnuts, but just a few, (they are rich in fat,) the good fat, but still… and shop healthy!

ActiveForever and CMTA

Did you know that Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease (CMT) currently affects roughly 115,000 Americans of all ages?

The hereditary, neurological disorder first diagnosed in 1886, is not life-threatening and almost never affects the brain. It does however, cause damage to the peripheral nerves. These nerves connect the brain and spinal cord to the muscles and sensory organs in our bodies. This neuropathy (nerve damage) causes muscles to become weak and deteriorate as well as a loss of sensation in the extremities.

The genetic causes of CMT were unknown as recently as 1991. As of now, scientists and physicians have helped to concretely identify 10 different genes linked to CMT. In all, there are a total of 30 genes in which abnormalities are thought to lead to CMT.

As part of their growing arsenal of partnerships, ActiveForever has joined forces with the Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association (CMTA). Together we advocate for the support, education and pursuit of a cure for those afflicted with CMT.

We invite you to learn more about this cause and find out ways in which you can become involved!

Med-E-Lert Automatic Pill Dispenser

With how hectic life can get sometimes, it’s no wonder the Med-E-Lert Automatic Pill Dispenser is one of ActiveForever’s top selling items.

It’s not a supreme deluxe gadget with a lot of bells and whistles. It’s a simple, handy little tool. With all the issues that go along with a complicated medication plan however, it’s literally a life-saver.

The compact medication compliance device helps individuals and their caregivers easily and accurately monitor medication administration. It’s a wonderful device for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s patients, or people with visual, mental or auditory impairments. It’s easy to use and program, and is great for basically anyone who would simply appreciate a little help staying up with their medication schedule.

An alarm and blinking light lets the user know when it’s time for medication. It is fully customizable, allowing for up to 4 daily alerts. The risk of over-medication is all but eliminated. Busy caregivers attest to the freedom and peace of mind afforded them by such a reliable reminder.

The discreet, compact design, pleasing tones and easy customization make the Med-E-Lert Dispenser the best part about a daily medication regimen. It makes the whole process automatic, so people are free to focus on the things that really matter in life.

Med-E-Lert takes the stress out of medication

iGrow Laser Hair Rejuvenation System

There are a number of things that signify youth, health and beauty. Among them are glowing skin, bright clear eyes and  firm, smooth nails. Of all of these factors however, the state of your crowning glory is perhaps the most obvious. The impact that a full head of hair has on a person’s looks is undeniable.

The advanced iGrow Laser Hair Rejuvenation System

Is this fair? Of course not. What about those who take impeccable care of themselves but just happen to have genetics working against them?

At one time, they’d have been either out of luck or confined to a questionable looking toupee or wig.

At ActiveForever we are thrilled to report that the iGrow Laser Hair Rejuvenation System has leveled the playing field for the follically challenged. Their unique, patent-pending combination of LED lights and low-level lasers has earned iGrow media attention. The effectiveness of this popular system has been scientifically proven, and a number of happy, healthy-haired heads publicly swear by it.

It’s not a hand-held device, but rather goes on like a helmet, so complete scalp coverage is effortless. Follicles are fattened as you sit, read, catch up on your favorite show, work on your laptop, etc., The innovative iGrow is also iPod and MP3 compatible so you can listen to your favorite music during your 25 minute session a few times a week.

It incorporates 5 pre-programmed modes for a customized session to meet the needs of each man and woman. After 10 to 12 weeks of regular use (or as directed) users can expect to see thicker, fuller, healthier looking hair.

The iGrow is one of ActiveForever’s hottest selling items and now it is 31 percent off. Free ground shipping is included if you order now.

Users rave bout the ease and painlessness of the iGrow system, claiming that it doesn’t cause discomfort like other hair-growth treatments. Now, with such a low price, neither your scalp or your wallet will feel the burn.

Thank you for your support.

ActiveForever would just like to say thank you to everyone who supported Small Business Saturday®.

Yesterday was Small Business Saturday, a day that fuels local economies, supports small businesses and invigorates the economy.

It was an incredible success, and that’s because of all of the people around the country who got involved, helped spread the word and, most importantly, decided to Shop Small®.

Together, we made a big impact on small businesses in our community.

Gearing up for Black Friday

It’s here folks!

Well… almost. Because if it were, you wouldn’t be reading this. You’d be running around  throwing elbows at the old lady standing between you and the best deals in town.

I’m talking about that which has worked it’s way into our national psyche as perhaps the most aggressive holiday of the year. The cultural phenomenon itself, Black Friday.

Here at ActiveForever, we’ve been preparing for this day for months. Parsing through our aisles and aisles of inventory, bringing down prices on some of our most coveted items. And we’ve done it all in appreciation of you, our wonderful customers.

Snow Wolf Wovel Snow Shovel

Take a look at our Discovery Digest. We’ve reduced our prices on great gift items like cold-weather gloves, the Huggie Buddy Heated Blanket you can wear, motorized massagers, yard equipment, and of course, the famous “Snow Wolf Wovel Snow Shovel.” This handy device makes once stubborn snow wish it never darkened your door in the first place.

Jeanie Rub Massager

People love our soothing facial and skin clarifying systems, and our popular exercise stations and whole body vibration machines are perfect for those who want to start their New Year’s resolutions off right.

DKN Technology Xg3 Whole Body Vibration Machine

 

There’s even cool stuff kids love like the Trikke T7 Convertible Kids Carving Vehicle.

Trikke T7 Convertible Kids Carving Vehicle

Everything is 20 to 75 percent off, and and Shipping is Free!

We know this consumer holiday can reduce otherwise perfectly mild people to fisticuffs; but that is only because trying to satisfy everyone on your list can be enough to force you to put off retirement, indefinitely.

Huggie Buddy Heated Blanket

We’ve got Black Friday deals going on all week. So act now, these fab items will never be cheaper!

ActiveForever supports “Project Patriot” with our “Charitable Check-out.”

‘Tis the season for charitable giving. And it’s no wonder. It’s a time-tested truism that people tend to hit their philanthropic peaks when they are at their happiest.

Yes, you are busy and yes, you are frazzled with a to-do list twice the size of  Santa’s. But you are talking to your beloveds more frequently, and everyday exchanging cards and gifts with friends.

Your hideous Christmas sweaters are now in style and what is normally a dismal block of pavement is adorned in twinkling garland and bows. Hot cocoa and candy are a dietary staple and once bitter kids are well-behaved. So naturally we can shell-out a dollar or two for the storefront Santa.

We have a lot of people to thank for these happy times, starting with the troops; especially those overseas.

In honor of these brave men and women, ActiveForever has joined with Daughters of the American Revolution to support “Project Patriot.”

This project makes the holidays a little brighter for our overseas servicemen and women by fulfilling their holiday “wish-lists.” These lists include everyday items such as Top Ramen, peanut butter, Campbell’s Soup, Slim Jims, “Extra” gum, Pop Tarts, etc.,

They are purchased directly for the troops with 100 percent of the donations received. D.A.R. packages and ships them in time for the holidays.

ActiveForever is thrilled about this wonderful cause and we thought you might be too, so we created our “Charitable Check-Out.” This makes donating to Project Patriot very easy and fast.

After you have made your selection and pressed the check-out button, you will be given the option to make a donation. The amount you choose will be added to your purchase total. That’s it!

This is just our way of remembering some very important people at this special time of year.

There are so many great ways to give this holiday season and this is just one of them. We know that no matter how you choose to be charitable, you will be making someone’s season very bright.

Happy  Holidays!

Knock that Cold out… Cold!

If you are anything at all like us here at ActiveForever, you are a mere mortal who is wont to fall prey to the common cold and flu from time to time.

It’s even more maddening when, to top it all off, you were a good little soldier and got your flu shot. Confound those blasted germs! (We’ll get you yet… *shakes fist*)

But until that day comes when we, as a species, finally overcome the cold and flu, ActiveForever would like to remind you that we are standing shoulder-to-shoulder here in the virus trenches with you and we’ll never leave. Well… we may have to turn our heads to cough or sneeze from time to time, but other than that we are here to help.

To that end, we thought we’d share a few of our cold and flu season survival kit, must-haves.

We’ll update this list frequently, but for today, we’d thought we’d start with one of our faves:

It’s the Slanket Blanket with Sleeves! These cold weather staples are a superior, long-lasting brand and they come in soo many pretty colors! We like the “Ruby Wine” one pictured below, but just in case you don’t, there’s Apricot, Texas Tea, Moss Green, Hunter Green, Castlerock, (a.k.a. grey) Princess Armor Pink (!) and more!

Enjoy! and Gesundheit!!
