Available in 3 sizes. Pick the size that's right for you.

Do you suffer from skin irritation and rashes caused by under breast sweat?

Persper-eez Breast Sweat Pads are disposable pads for relief of under breast sweat and breast rashes designed to be worn with or without a bra. They are ideal for medium to larger breasted women with a B cup or larger.

Persper-eez is not only perfect for hot days but any day you want to be dry and confident. Whether you're heading out to exercise, putting on formal wear, getting ready to make that business presentation, are a pregnant woman experiencing breast growth, or you care for a senior with under breast sweat problems, Persper-eez is right for you!

Here's Another Way to Wear Persper-eez

We’ve heard from a couple of women that they are attaching the pads directly to their bra, laying the bra down on a flat surface and attaching the pads to the bottom edge of the bra, then putting it on. Let us know if you’ve tried it too. info@persper-eez.com.

Foods to Improve Life

Most of us like food. We enjoy sharing a meal with others, the aroma of something yummy cooking on the stove. But did you know there are actually foods that may trigger anxiety in someone already struggling with the issue, or even affect those who aren’t? The effects of food on the body has been studied by researchers, government agencies, dietitians, even therapists. The amount and variety of processed food currently in the American diet has been under scrutiny for years, yet the general public remains largely unaware of the effects.

Foods that may trigger/worsen anxiety

Sugar

Most everyone knows that diets including large amounts of processed sugar can lead to a host of physical and emotional issues. The human body’s natural blood sugar levels are strongly impacted by what we eat, especially the intake of processed sugar. The roller coaster effect from the highs and lows of eating or drinking sugary products can leave us feeling worse than before we ate it. See our articles on the roller coaster effects of sugar.

Instead: Choose fresh fruit (natural sugar) and vegetables, eggs, nuts, 100% fruit juice.

Trans Fat

While there is zero benefit to consuming foods high in trans fat (also called partially hydrogenated vegetable oil), health professionals are very familiar with their negative impact on the body. Research has shown that consuming trans fat (found in processed foods such as chips, refrigerated biscuits, baked goods) may actually worsen depression and increase anxiety. They are bad for our health but also for our mood. More information can be found at PubMed.

Instead: Choose avocados, low-fat cheese and cottage cheese, low-fat yogurt.
Visit Allina Health for more information on trans fat and saturated fat.

Coffee

How many people have you heard say they HAVE to have that morning cup of joe before they’re truly awake? Caffeine has cortisol (a fight or flight hormone) that revs up the body to combat stress. That’s why people feel more awake and energized after that first cup. Caffeine can cause anxiety in people who don’t have it and may worsen it in those who do. Switch to decaf if you’re having more than one cup.

Instead: Choose decaffeinated beverages (coffee, tea) and plenty of water.

Gluten

Gluten intolerance has become a major focus of discussion on healthy living. The rise of diagnosed Celiac Disease has literally put gluten under a microscope. Gluten (a protein in wheat, barley, rye) can worsen anxiety and panic attacks in those already coping with these issues, especially in people with a gluten intolerance, and can even affect people who are not necessarily gluten intolerant.

Instead: Choose fruits and veggies, quinoa, eggs, low-fat dairy products, lean meats.

WebMD provides a list of foods to avoid when dealing with anxiety and/or depression including “fruit juice/soda/diet soda/energy drinks, white bread, ‘lite’ dressing, ketchup, pastries, and processed foods like lunch meats and refined cereals.”

The site also lists foods that can help fight depression such as:

turkey/chicken/soybeans (which have tryptophan that the body uses to make serotonin)
brazil nuts/brown rice/lean beef/seafood (rich in selenium which protects against free radicals)
carrots/pumpkin/spinach/sweet potatoes/cantaloupe (their beta-carotene can lower depression levels)
clams/mussels/lean beef/milk/eggs (good sources of vitamin B-12)
leafy greens/lentils/lima beans/asparagus (providing folate for healthy brain cells)
salmon (high in polyunsaturated fats like omega-3)

Life is complicated enough when living with anxiety and/or depression. Making wise food choices can help you feel better physically, emotionally, and mentally. Talk with your medical professional or a nutritionist to know which foods might help improve your mood, clear your brain, and make life better.
