What Are The 5 Benefits Of Healthy Eating?
We are what we eat.
You must have heard of this mantra.
Perhaps you don’t need to be told what it means but just to make sure we’re on the same page, it implies that everything we eat forms a collection of molecules that make up the whole body.
That means that if we eat healthy foods, our bodies stay healthy. And if we eat unhealthy foods our bodies become unhealthy.
But how does eating healthy affect your body?

Acne Before Period: 8 Ways to Prevent
Let's Talk about Moisturizing, Inside and Out
The truth is that water is not my favorite beverage. In my Heaven, cappuccino would be the essential fluid, burgers and fries would be health food, and milk chocolate would contain all the essential nutrients in the recommended daily allowances. But that’s my Heaven; things seem to be arranged a little differently here on Earth. So, I drink water, lots of water.
Water is an interesting substance. It is an inorganic, transparent, colorless, odorless fluid. It has no calories and provides no organic nutrients. For such an apparently “nothing” substance, it’s actually quite startling just how indispensable it is to organic life forms.
Tips for Managing Menstrual Cramps in the Summer from a Gynecologist
From Sherry Thomas, M.D.
The traditional way of dealing with menstrual cramps — the good ol’ heating pad — is so yesterday. And in the summertime, who wants to be hugging the equivalent of a toaster oven? The latest research suggests there are much better options for fighting off menstrual distress. Here are my top five recommendations:
1. Stay away from foods that can cause bloating. Some foods that are nutrition super-heroes the rest of the month may provoke bloating right before and during your period. That includes legumes (such as peas, beans and lentils) and cruciferous veggies (like broccoli and kale). Likewise, dairy products and whole grains can be bad factors during this time. Be extra careful to stay away from anything with lots of sodium, which is well-known for causing bloat. But… this is a good time to be reaching for ginger. It has long been a traditional medicine for fighting inflammatory disease, and recent research says it can help tame cramps. It’s available as a supplement on the vitamin aisle.

I would highly recommend the Nanno pads to any woman, especially those who suffer from menstrual issues. This type of pad is literally a life saver. I was highly allergic to other brands which caused much discomfort. I came across these at my local CVS and they were the best. I won't use any other brands. You will be very pleased they help to lessen menstrual cramps and they are more pure.
I have purchased this product once before and that prompted me to purchase more. I can say they help with coverage during your heavy days. I like the fact that they are thinner than most brands.
I love these pads sooo much. They actually do help with my period pain and so absorbent, don't smell at all... literally perfect!
I have been using Nannopads for the past few months. I've held off writing a review because I wanted to really see if there is a difference between more natural products & that of the big manufacturers. Welp! I can safely say...I don't miss the heat that the plastic on most pads make you feel all day. I don't miss the minute crinkling sound as I walk with a "traditional" pad. And, I don't miss my privates perspiring & irritation! So, I recommend highly recommend Nannopads!
My review may seem a little biased. I didn't purchase these for my cycle. I purchased these based off the fact I was having major surgery and I would need pads during recovery . What drew me in, was the fact it was suppose to help with discomfort and they weren't the typical pad. So far, I love these pads. I don't feel like I'm wearing a pad, especially how even the thins in other brands felt bulky. Since I'm still recuperating, these have helped me through the spotting and I've noticed there has been a reduction in discomfort.
For the first time in over 20 plus years I didn't have to take any medication during my menstrual cycle. While I did experience some discomfort, it was tolerable without pain medication. Now I'm a bit of a skeptic, so even after the amazing results, I had to wait for a second cycle to post my results. Comparing the two cycles I consider the first cycle a "light" (not the norm for me) which consist of me talking about 1800mg of motrin during each of the first two days. The next cycle was a doozy, ( the norm) which usually consist of me taking the 800mg of motrin every six hours and still having discomfort. I'm very excited to report I only had to take 400mg of motrin during the first 24hrs. These results are amazing, on my worst cycle the nanno pad significantly reduced my pain. I have given the nanno pads to my nieces, I'm hopeful they see the same results since they too suffer from cramps. LIFETIME CUSTOMER!
These are the best pads I’ve ever tried! They are super absorbent so I feel more confident wearing them. I really didn’t see much of a difference in my cramps but I’m ok with that. The only thing I would change is to make to panty liners a little longer or have an option for longer ones.
I had some of the most debilitating cramps a few days ago and my mom gave me these NannoPads. I put it on and literally within 20 mins my cramps were going away. I couldn't believe it. Now I am the person who pops in an Advil or ibuprofen to get rid of the pain because I am a workaholic and I NEVER want to miss work. BUT I hate painkillers so the fact that I found a product that is natural AND SO EASY to help relieve my cramps is very exciting for me.
To say I’m pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. Nannocare DOES work......it was both absorbent and subsided my cramps about 70-75% – which is huge!
I really didn't think it was possible for a pad to help with cramping so | didn't think it would do anything. I was very surprised that I had no cramping at all! I started using them a few days before I probably should have but my period was about 3 days later than expected. I really liked the bigger pads as it covered more area for night time.
I felt the pads not only kept me dry and did not cause and leakage but most importantly they helped with my cramps. | definitely felt as a result of using the pads my cramps were more manageable as | felt a lot less pain and was able to do normal activities without having to worry about the pain being so bad.
I have fallen in love with everything from Nannocare. I literally don’t want to leave the house without a panty liner because they truly keep you fresh feeling all day. As for the actual pads, I have been able to go from lying in bed with a hot water bottle and popping Motrin, to being able to go on like any other day due to the reduction in cramping and overall pain. I highly recommend this product even if you are a hard No against pads (which I totally get because that was me), at least give it a shot. I will take pain relief over anything.
I was really happy with these pads. I used to have very severe cramps right before my period and on the first day of my period but this product really worked for me. I still had cramps but they did not hurt as much as they usually hurt me. I was very happy with this product.
I have no idea what is in these pads, but they are wonderful! I normally have horrible backaches and migraines and it seemed when I was using these pads, I didn't experience any migraine pain and very little back pain, I am a full-time college student and my period usually keeps me out of school one day a month and this month, I was able to attend school every day, as I did not have any discomfort that was so extreme that 1 had to miss classes! Please tell me what this product is! Thanks again for letting me be n part of this great study and letting me he practically pain-free for at least one month of my period!
