MedRock HotRock Foam Roller Review: Combines Muscle Release and Comforting Heat in One

Ask any personal trainer, and they’ll tell you the best item you can have in your home for recovery is a foam roller. There might be (there will be) moments where you’re cursing the demons who forged such a torturous item, but foam rolling is a big part of keeping your body healthy and happy after a hard workout. They can be as simple as a cylinder of foam, or they can be studded with textures to dig into each knot. The new MedRock HotRock Foam Roller brings the heat to the foam rolling experience!

Anyone who exercises regularly knows that recovery is a key part of improving. You can’t push forever; sometimes, your body needs to heal.

Enter the Fishda Double Heads Massage Gun, which offers a way to pummel your muscles into submission without also destroying your wallet or disrupting your home decor!

Anytime I’ve sung their praises, I’ve had to steer potential buyers towards Amazon, CVS, or the Neuro website, but Neuro sent us some amazing news today — you’ll be able to get Neuro Mints and Gum at Whole Foods!




Fluo Labs Flo Can Tame Seasonal Allergies without Drugs? Yes, Please!

Like many people, I suffer from seasonal allergies. Apparently, I’m allergic to trees, which is unfortunate since they’re everywhere and kind of key to a healthy ecosystem.

Fluo Labs Flo has a particularly intriguing concept, where they use handheld light therapy to reduce nasal inflammation caused by Allergic Rhinitis.

I reviewed the BlendJet some months ago; the small, battery-operated blender does exactly what it promises and can go anywhere. Paired with the company’s JetPacks, you can have a smoothy anywhere.
