Kid Proof: Spill Proof Your Car and Home

He might not wear a cape, or have secret superpowers, but dad is the ultimate superhero when it’s time to save the day from little messes. Take Cory Listner for example, this dad and chemical engineer saved the family ride from more spilled milkshake coming up with a genius way to keep the car clean while protecting the health of his children.

He founded Caprock Products with the invention of Kid Proof, the fabric protectant that uses nanotechnology to safely seal fabrics and leather from food and liquid spills.

Why we love Kid Proof:

  • Doesn’t use fluorocarbons, acetone, or naphtha so all of your family members – the two-legged and four-legged – are safe from toxic chemicals.
  • Nanotechnology-based ingredients actually bond to the fabric or leather creating an impermeable barrier.
  • No matter how hectic family life gets, you can apply once and know it’s always working.
  • Spills don’t just happen in the car. Remember to use Kid Proof on your household upholstery and carpets too!

About Caprock Products LLC:

Father and husband Cory Listner is the founder and president of Caprock Products LLC. It was one incident in particular that put this chemical engineer in a new line of work in 2018 as he discovered day-old strawberry milkshake spilled in his car. He researched nanotechnology and how to get a hydrophobic material into water and thus Caprock’s first product, Kid Proof Fabric Protectant, was born. To prove it worked, he recreated the strawberry milkshake incident in his back seat. Aside from multiple hobbies and volunteering for various organizations, including Boy Scouts as a Cub Master, Listner holds a degree in chemical engineering from The University of Illinois at Chicago and will be graduating in August with his MBA from Texas Tech University.

The cactus is living out its fame lately in pop culture. Mini cacti are becoming the new house plant while images of this prickly plant adorn our clothing, bedding and linens. Perhaps it’s time to look at this desert-dweller for its health benefits rather than the bedroom theme we swoon over at IKEA.

McDonald points out that potent cactus oil secretions in KINDri Skin Care naturally increase cellular turnover while strengthening your skin’s ability to take on the elements and stresses of everyday life. Ingredients like organic prickly pear cactus seed oil have multiple anti-aging properties that stimulate collagen and hydrate and plump skin.

Summer must-haves:

Cactus & Rose Illuminating Face Oil – Your skin will glow! Hydrating Organic Prickly Pear Seed (cactus) Oil, reparative 4% Apple Stem Cell and the anti-inflammatory properties of Rose Essential Oil make up this potent serum.

Avocado Smoothie – A powerful blend of 2% Organic Apple Stem Cell and potent Organic Prickly Pear Seed (cactus) Oil naturally increases cellular rejuvenation.  Our newly reformulated extra rich day to night cream defends skin against harsh environmental conditions in the day, soothes and revitalizes while you sleep and has a fresh, clean aroma.

Wash Your Nose for Better Breathing!

You wash your hands, eat your veggies and stay away from sick people, all in an effort to stay healthy. But there’s one more thing you can do to stay healthier – wash your nose. That’s right, washing your nose is good for you, and there’s a multitude of studies to prove it. Nasopure is the comfortable way to breathe better, naturally.

Nasopure’s buffered saline nasal wash is designed to flush away the allergens, irritants and infectious particles you breathe in every day. Your filter, the nose, processes 10,000 liters per air each day. Does it make sense to clean this filter? Science Says Yes. Nasopure washes the nasal passages before these irritants have a chance to invade the body and wreak havoc – got you it now? If so, get it tomorrow by shopping on Amazon Prime.

Nasopure’s unique design offers a user controlled flush with patented water lines to ensure the proper flow along the nasal floor, avoiding the  common complaints of drowning sensation. Not Nasopure. The salt packets have the highest buffering content, offering an effective and soothing experience.

It’s different than other rinses because it doesn’t push debris into sinus cavity but flushes along the nasal floor, actually encourages natural sinus drainage. The patented ergonomic designed bottle along with the ideal saline and buffering makes this the one for comfort and effectiveness and ease of use.

Don’t want the kids to get the flu, don’t like having asthma attacks, tired of your spouse constantly sneezing due to allergies? Nasopure can help stop those problems before they start! It can also help combat sinus infections, colds, influenza, relieve congestion, help you stay healthy while traveling, expel occupational irritants and more. And when you stay healthy, you can avoid having to overuse medications. So clean your nose with Nasopure and breathe better naturally!

Why You’ll Love Nasopure:

  • Comfortable enough for even a two-year-old to use
  • Resealable cap & travel friendly
  • BPA Free
  • Affordable
  • Free of Chemicals – All Natural
  • Perfect balance saline mix
  • Easy to use
  • Developed by a pediatrician using a mothers wisdom

About Nasopure:

Nasopure was developed by pediatrician Dr. Hana Solomon after seeing the need for a comfortable solution to nasal health. She wanted to extend her oath – First Do No Harm and is passionate about helping people breathe easier, naturally.

She started BeWell Health, LLC in 2007 to offer Nasopure, The Most Comfortable Nose Wash In The World, in the hopes of reducing the public’s use of unnecessary and harmful medication and promoting patient empowerment through sharing knowledge. Nasopure is now sold around the world. Dr. Hana says “Our prime directive is KEEPING THE WORLD CLEAN, one itchy, snotty, drippy, sneezy, congested nose at a time!”

Don’t worry, BrEathe HAPPY!

It’s So Much More Than a Diet: How to Embrace the Mediterranean Lifestyle and Enjoy Stellar Health

The popularity of the Mediterranean diet is no surprise. After all, it helps prevent diabetes, heart attacks, and strokes; reduces inflammation; lowers your risk of dementia; and may even extend your lifespan. Amy Riolo says if you want to get the most out of the Mediterranean diet—which was named Best Diet Overall for 2019—you must also adopt the Mediterranean lifestyle.

“The Mediterranean ‘diet’ is more than the foods you consume; it’s also a way of life,” says Riolo, author of The Mediterranean Diabetes Cookbook, 2nd Edition: A Flavorful, Heart-Healthy Approach to Cooking (American Diabetes Association, May 2019, ISBN: 978-1-580-40702-1, $22.95). “The people in this part of the world live in a way that optimizes health. But to achieve the same level of wellness, you can’t just eat the foods of the region. You must also commit to its food philosophy and make lifestyle changes that feed your body, mind, and soul.”

In the Mediterranean, people not only value the preparation and enjoyment of natural whole foods, but they participate in communal eating and make regular physical activity a priority. Together, these factors make them some of the healthiest people in the world. If you are one of the 25 million people in the U.S. with diabetes, you too will benefit from the Mediterranean way of life.

These tips will help you enjoy the Mediterranean diet as part of a greater lifestyle where food is steeped in a rich tradition of community and activity.

First, start thinking of food as an ally. To fully benefit from a Mediterranean-style eating pattern, you should adopt the belief that food is a friend—instead of something problematic. Throughout the region, food plays an important role. It is viewed not only as a traditional medicine, but also as a form of artistic expression, a social activity, a cultural relic, and most of all, a symbol of hospitality.

Embrace the Mediterranean-style eating pattern. The great thing about this eating pattern is that there’s no “one-size-fits-all” daily intake list to stick to. It simply focuses on seasonal produce, fish and seafood, poultry, eggs, dairy, and smaller amounts of meat and sweets. To start following a Mediterranean-style eating pattern, plan your meals around plant-based foods including seasonal vegetables and fruit. Be sure to incorporate fish at least two to three times a week. Cook with olive oil. Enjoy dairy often, and consume meats and sweets only sparingly. Try to cook as much of your food as possible and incorporate the freshest, highest-quality foods you can find. NOTE: Please see the attached sidebar for a recipe from The Mediterranean Diabetes Cookbook, 2nd Edition.

Tune into the eating process. “In the U.S., we tend to think of mealtime as something we have to do, instead of something we want to do,” says Riolo. “But the eating process is a big part of life in the Mediterranean. It’s a major topic of conversation, and people think about it all day. To emulate this in your own life, start finding ways to get excited about cooking and eating Mediterranean-style meals. Search for healthy and delicious recipes you’ll enjoy, make a meal plan every week, and schedule times when you’ll be able to cook. Then, find ways to make cooking fun. Host a themed dinner party or invite friends over to cook a meal together. When you’re finished cooking, sit down and enjoy the fruits of your labor.”

Nurture strong social ties through communal eating. Every country and culture in the Mediterranean has its own way of encouraging people to eat together. (In fact, eating alone was once frowned upon throughout the region!) Restaurant dining is a rarity, and most meals are served family-style at home. This tradition has been linked to improved digestion and eating less overall. Further, eating with others contributes to overall well-being.

“Even modern researchers have concluded that having at least three confidants whom you can call upon after a bad day plays a great role in longevity,” says Riolo. “Sharing the table with people you care about can be even more rewarding—it provides a sense of comfort, security, and stability. Strive to enjoy regular communal meals with your loved ones. Pencil it into your schedule, as you would any other activity, and when you can, include meal prep as part of the fun! In addition to having regular family dinners, enjoy lunch outings with coworkers and host a potluck dinner party with friends.”

Get physically active. Americans don’t typically get the 30 to 60 minutes of physical activity we need daily. When this is compounded with an unhealthy diet, it causes weight gain that can lead to diabetes, clogged arteries, and other health problems. But in the Mediterranean region, the simple tasks of daily life—things like hanging clothes out to dry, shopping, and cooking—naturally require more activity and calorie expenditure. Nightly walks with family and friends, more walking due to limited parking, and the abundance of stairs also keep people healthy throughout the region. Try the following ways to incorporate exercise into your routine.

  • Play a team sport.
  • Garden.
  • Take the stairs and walk whenever possible.
  • Take walks after meals.
  • Sign up for exercise and/or dance classes.
  • Meet friends and relatives at parks, gyms, sports meets, or lessons, rather than at restaurants.
  • Invite people to walk and window shop while catching up instead of sitting down and talking.
  • Cook your own meals! Shopping for produce at markets, going grocery shopping, preparing food, and cooking are great ways to burn additional calories.

“You’ll get the greatest benefit from the Mediterranean diet when you think of it as a part of a healthy lifestyle,” concludes Riolo. “The food you eat is important, but so is enjoying that food with a network of people you care about, and getting up and moving so your body stays strong and healthy. Together, these changes create lasting wellness and vitality.”
