Super Beets For The Heart

October 22, 2021

Good morning.  Today should be sunny with temps in the upper sixties.  Slowly, we're dipping back into the cooler temps.  Indian Summer doesn't last very long.

I got a lot of good sleep during the night.  In clumps of time, of course.  I can't remember when I last slept for more than three hours at a time.   As long as I can keep going back to sleep after each clump of time, it's okay.  

I've been taking two Super Beet Chewies every day for months now.  I don't know if they are helping to keep my blood pressure down, but at my last doctor visit my blood pressure was the lowest it has been in a long time.  These chewies are super tasty!

The ad says: "Clinically shown to promote normal blood pressure as part of a healthy lifestyle.  Provide circulatory support.  Promote plant-based, heart healthy energy.  Support heart health.  Provide antioxidant support to help protect against oxidative stress & damage.  Plus they are made with no artificial sweeteners, flavors or colors."

In response to Steve's question about the Raven stamp, I did look it up and found:  "The Raven Story represents a great meaning to the indigenous people of the Northwest Coast" said Jakki Krage Strako, the Postal Service's chief commerce and business solutions officer and executive vie president.  Art director Antonio Alcala designed the stamp based on art created by Tlingit/Athabascan designer and artist Rico Worl.  There was more information if anyone is interested in looking it up.

While I was looking for this information, I came across the Raven poem by Edgar Allen Poe, and read it again.  Tis quite a sad story.  The poem made Poe popular in his lifetime, but it did not bring him much financial success.

The mailman has just been here and I'm about to go out and pick up the mail.  So, till Sunday, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous weekend.

Hugs, Edna B.

Hi Edna. I have been thinking of using those beet chewies myself. Some times I think if we all took meds and supplements we are advised to take...we could be eating a med or vitamin every five minutes of the day. LOL. I still am going to try those. speaking of mail...I received a package the other day, I was excited, opened it and it was empty !! It was for returning my telephone internet modems...oh how mean, to make me think I had a gift. LOL. Take care and wishing you well. Blessings xoxo, Susie

Hi Edna, Super beets are great for normalizing blood pressure, the stamp is so unusual, beautiful in its own way!
Have a great day! ,

Interesting about the raven! Thanks so much for looking that up! It IS a beautiful image.

I haven't heard of beet chews but I love beets (and pomegranate). Maybe I should try them one of these days! My blood pressure isn't high but they couldn't hurt. :)
