I used R+F Lash Boost for almost 8 weeks. My lashes definitely grew longer but by week six I started noticing redness and burning. Just last week I noticed puffiness around both eyes, especially under my left eye. I stopped using the Lash Boost. I haven’t used it for 4 days and the swelling is getting worse as well as the redness and itching. The skin under the eye that is swollen looks darker. I also noticed hair growing on the skin near the inside corners of my eyes, where hair is NOT supposed to be growing. I do not recommend this product. My eyelids have been swollen and my eyes have been hurting for several days now. It is not worth it. Buyers beware!
Some scientists are trying to take the next step to determine whether exercise directly affects a person's susceptibility to infection. For example, some researchers are looking at whether extreme amounts of intensive exercise can cause athletes to get sick more often or somehow impairs their immune function. To do this sort of research, exercise scientists typically ask athletes to exercise intensively; the scientists test their blood and urine before and after the exercise to detect any changes in immune system components. While some changes have been recorded, immunologists do not yet know what these changes mean in terms of human immune response.
Polyphenols have recently been termed “lifespan essentials”, and they actively work in the body to prevent certain disease mechanisms from occurring.  Polyphenols are antioxidants from plant foods that work in the body to enhance health in complex ways, and as such they are not simply antioxidants.  Their specific health-promoting actions are still being actively researched, and it is generally recognized that they can reduce the risk factors for cardiovascular disease and basically help to protect many body systems from the risks or ravages of many types of chronic disease.  It is possible that the health promoting effects of polyphenols are not due to their antioxidant qualities, but rather because they help control blood sugar spikes after meals.  Boosting one's intake of polyphenols on a daily basis is easy to do, and can be a tasty, gourmet adventure.
