Amazing Grass - 1 Year Later

It has been about one full year since I started using Amazing Grass.

I wanted to re-visit this subject and let you guys know how it's been going.

I have used Amazing Grass every single day, except a few days here or there when I forgot, or when I left the tub behind in travels (sad). In total, I'd say in the whole year there were only about 10 days I did not use Amazing Grass.

The benefits have been life-changing for me.

Headaches - completely gone. I've had maybe 5 in the past year. This is huge for somebody that used to get them once or twice a week and have to call out of work when they got bad enough to make me nauseous and cause blurred vision.

Nails - healthy, strong, and fast growing. I have to cut my fingernails every week and my toenails every other week. They are thick and never crack or break.

Hair - healthy, strong, and fast growing, too! In late September I cut my hair to have bangs. It's now early February and the bangs are long enough to put up in my ponytail. That is inches of growth in less than six months.

Acne - I still have small breakouts here and there, mostly around my period. My regular acne and smaller breakouts on my chest and back have disappeared. I used to get large, painful cyst-like pimples on my face and I cannot remember the last time I had one.

Digestive system - before I started Amazing Grass I used to go poo only about two or three times a week. I thought this was normal for me. Since starting Amazing Grass I now go every single day. I believe this regular elimination reduces build-up and toxins in my system which contributed to the headaches and the acne.

Instead of the smoothies, I now mix my Amazing Grass with a small glass of orange juice every morning. I find when mixed with orange juice, the gritty texture of the powder disappears completely.

I purchase my Amazing Grass through Amazon on a subscription basis. The 17 oz. (60 serving) Berry Flavor tub ends up costing about $32, which is far less than I've seen it anywhere else. You can pause or edit your subscription preferences at any time and keep the same cost, too.

This is not a compensated review. These are my personal opinions and experiences with a product I purchase and use on my own accord.

Christina I am amazed and impressed while at the same time I am not - you are doing what I have been telling people to do for years and that is fix yourself from the inside out - people used to laugh at me when I would be gorging on avocados and salmon because I told them I needed the oils before I go home to dry old New Mexico - well no one is laughing now...I am so glad to hear how well this is working for you and I am sure you will be influencing many others with this testimonial.

Christina said...

Thanks Christo! A few years ago I saw an Edgar Cayce documentary. I've read many of his books since. He has the same theory - to fix your body, not the symptoms. Our aches, pains, and illnesses are symptoms - our body is trying to tell us something. To take meds and band aid over those symptoms is ignoring what the body is saying!

Tracy Simmons said...

Wow! The truly is amazing! I have heard really good things about this product and I am glad it helped you :)

Stuff still gives me the willies taste & texture wise but I'll try it mixed in OJ!

Jessie said...

Thanks for your great review, Christina! I'm glad you've felt so much better this year (especially the poo thing, which can make life so much better ;) ).

Have a great rest of your week!

This is awesome. I just added some more to my amazon cart. I've been feeling exhausted and sluggish lately. Not to mention tummy issues and headaches. I remember you telling me about amazing grass. I'll try it daily and see how it goes.

Roz said...

Wow...that is a great testimonial. Very tempting to order some and give it a go. Thanks Christina, have a great day

First off, thank you times a million for your sweet comment on my new adventure!! It's not going to be easy, but it'll be totally worth it in the end :-)

Secondly, I've heard a bit about Amazing Grass here and there, but I had no idea that it had this many benefits. I am seriously going to consider ordering some!!

I absolutely LOVE Amazing Grass! I actually have quite a few smoothie recipes on my blog that call for it. I work at a health food store and it goes on sale quite often, with my discount it's even cheaper. My mom and my little brother are also using it... little bro likes how it makes his smoothie "a toxic green" ;) It's soo awesome! Never tried any other kind except the berry flavor. I will have to try with just orange juice.

Biz said...

I may have to check that out - glad that you are "reguluar: now!

Alisa Fleming said...

Wow, awesome results Christina! I love that stuff too, but don't use it as religiously. I usually add it to my breakfast smoothie - banana required - no grit!
