The new feature means Amazon customers can effortlessly preserve their entire collection of old photographs and protect them, at no charge and forever, from loss, harm, and inevitable fading.

Celebrated Paleo Writer and Advocate Tina Turbin of PaleOmazing.com Supports Major Up-and-Coming, Paleo-Friendly Companies with Her Testing and Reviews

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 10, 2014

The celebrated author and paleo, gluten-free advocate Tina Turbin is raising awareness on behalf of newer, gluten-free, paleo-friendly companies through her product testing and reviews on her popular website, http://www.PaleOmazing.com.

With her presence in the paleo community, Turbin is continuously called and emailed with requests for product reviews. She is now making it a point to test and review the lesser known, up-and-coming companies that contact her.

Helping the amazing paleo and gluten-free companies that reach out to me has become a passion of mine, Turbin says. So many products have touched my life in special ways. I want to not only empower other celiacs, paleo followers and health-conscious individuals with these products that fit their needs, but I want to help these special companies flourish by spreading the word about them.

Recently, Turbin has reviewed major newcomers to the gluten-free paleo scene, including Paleo Diet Bars, the European coffee company Puro -MIKO, Pure Indian Foods, Skinny Coconut Butter, Sweet Spreads with many more reviews lined up for others including Bulletproof Coffee, Buff Butter and even Quest Bars and their newest releases.

In one of her latest reviews, Turbin brought attention to Puros organic, fairtrade coffee. The celebrated paleo writer recommended the European company for not only its environmentally conscious practices, but for its superior, gluten-free-friendly coffee. She not only reviewed it, but arranged for the coffee to be tested by the baristas and owners of Los Angeless leading cafes in an effort to get the word out about the company and to potentially help them find a U.S. distributor.

A leading voice in the gluten-free community, Turbin says, My purpose is to educate the public about these companies that possibly dont have the money and means to do large advertising. Im honored to have this opportunity to help, and I truly enjoy what I do.
