OPOVE M3 Pro Max Massage Gun – Review

I was recently given the opportunity to review the OPOVE M3 Pro Max Massage Gun. This is the best-selling massage gun on Amazon, with over 9000 reviews and five-stars given by 90% of all reviewers. As an avid runner, I’d seen different massage guns promoted by my local running store. Massage guns are widely used by runners, and other athletes, to provide relief after tough workouts and to prepare for big events. It’s not unusual to have sore muscles after a tough workout or after working a new muscle group. Massage has been shown to provide relief and allow another tough workout sooner. But who has the time (or money!) to get professional massages after every workout? Massage guns allow you to self-massage!

First Impression of the OPOVE M3 Pro Max Massage Gun

Within the exterior cardboard box, the OPOVE M3 Pro Max Massage Gun comes stored within a heavy-duty, zippered carrying case. I was super impressed with the quality of this case and the storage capability. The OPOVE M3 Pro Max Massage Gun set comes with a charging cable, 5 attachment heads for different massage needs for your entire body, and instruction guides. When fully charged, the OPOVE M3 Pro Max Massage Gun has a 4-hour battery life.

 

 

 

As someone not familiar with trigger point therapy, anatomy, or massage, I was glad that the set came with a guide for massaging different body parts. Each body part is marked with  X’s to show trigger point spots to apply the massage gun to for best results. The massage gun can be operated in either manual or automatic mode. The manual mode holds a consistent pressure, with 4 different operating levels. With the auto mode, the massage gun will automatically change the pressure to allow varying degrees of pressure without having to manually adjust.

Conclusion

While I consider myself, at a minimum, a weekend warrior, the OPOVE M3 Pro Max Massage Gun has strong power and is good for both fitness enthusiasts and people who suffer from back pain. It is extremely light-weight and quiet, even in high-speed mode yet is very high quality. You can also use the gun in either manual or auto mode, so it’s extremely customizable to your needs. Given that professional massages usually start at $1 per minute, the value of a massage gun is priceless!

Brew Your Own Kombucha in 3 Easy Steps

Disclosure: This article includes affiliate links that will pay me if you decide to purchase using the link. There is no extra cost to you but helps me to run this site.

What is Kombucha?

In its simplest form, kombucha is fermented tea. It contains a large amount of probiotics, yeast, and bacteria. The same elements in yogurt, kefir, and kimchi. All are recommended foods to keep your gut health in check. Kombucha also helps fight invading bacteria to keep us well. By having a healthy colony of yeast and bacteria in your body, you are more likely to fight off infection early and less likely to get sick as often or stay sick as long.

At any grocery store, you’ll find a shelf or more dedicated to the drink, with fun flavors like cranberry, ginger, lemon, and watermelon. While I love the store-bought brands, at $3.50+ per bottle, this adds up quickly. It takes a little investment to get started brewing your own kombucha, but the cost per batch is very low, needing just tea and sugar new each time.

Items Needed

Teapot or Kettle

You’ll need a teapot or kettle to boil water and steep the tea. I love this HadinEEon Variable Temperature Electric Kettle from Amazon.com because of its wide opening (helpful for stirring to dissolve the sugar) and built-in filter through the spout (you don’t want any tea or other particles to enter your kombucha brew). 

Black or Green  Tea

You want a plain black or green tea kombucha base. Green tea will produce a slightly sweet but subtle tasting kombucha, while black tea creates a rich yet smooth flavor.

Organic Cane Sugar

Any sugar can be used, but organic cane sugar is recommended to keep your SCOBY healthy.

Fermentation Container

While you can ferment your kombucha in any glass container of at least 1 gallon in size, I recommend a vessel with a spout at the bottom. This way, you can easily bottle your kombucha through the spot and add a fresh tea mixture to continuously brew kombucha.

Kombucha & Party Entertainer

SCOBY

Most kombucha kits will include a SCOBY (Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast), but you can also purchase on Amazon.com or get from a friend. As you brew, your SCOBY will grow baby SCOBYs that can be separated to start another batch, shared, or saved for the unfortunate event of a moldy brew. I’ve found the Fermentaholics brand to be very strong and effective.

SCOBY

Funnel & Strainer

Used for moving kombucha from one container to another without any small SCOBY’s from being transported.

Bottles

Once your kombucha has finished brewing, you’ll need to bottle it up and refrigerate it. Kombucha builts up carbonation, so you’ll want to find a strong glass bottle that can withstand the pressure. With the flip-top, these bottles can be used over and over.

Brew Your Own Kombucha

1. Brew Sweet Tea

Boil 4 cups of water. Stir in 1 cup of organic cane sugar until dissolved. Brew 2 tablespoons of your preferred tea for 10 minutes.

2. Add Scoby

Add 10 cups of cool water to your fermentation vessel. Then add your brewed sweet tea. You want to make sure to filter out all particles so they don’t attach to your SCOBY and grown mold. Once the entire mixture is room temperature, add the SCOBY and at least 1 cup of SCOBY liquid.

3. Wait

Cover your kombucha with a cover or cloth and place in a dark, undisturbed location at room temperature. It’s recommended to be between 68 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit. I found that my basement was too cold, so now keep on the kitchen counter. My kit said to start tasting on day 4 and brew til your desired taste is reached. I find that I prefer stronger kombucha and will brew up to 2 weeks. At this point, you can either bottle and refrigerate to slow the fermentation or add a second fermentation

2nd Fermentation

Second fermentation is optional, but where all the fun flavors that you are used to are added. Add 2 tsp of your favorite fruit tea (or straight fruit) and 2 tsp of organic can sugar to each bottle. Filter kombucha from your 1st fermentation vessel and gently stir to dissolve sugar. Place your bottles in a dark, room temperature location. I use the bottle’s original shipping box and keep next to my 1st fermentation vessel on the kitchen counter. Taste and burp your bottles every 2 days so they don’t overpressurize. When kombucha reaches your desired taste, refrigerate and enjoy!
