I used to be really good about properly taking care of myself. I got my daily exercise in, took a little time out for pampering at home, took my vitamins, ate healthily, etc. Now that I am married, with a family of my own, I am much more concerned about taking care of everyone else- making sure that they have what they need, and I sometimes forget that I still need to be taking care of myself. I have gotten back into some really good habits, like the daily exercise, and watching what I eat, but it wasn't until recently that I started taking a daily multivitamin again.
Vitamins delivered to my door, thanks to Puritan's Pride.
I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with Puritan's Pride, who sent several vitamins to my home. I think that I stopped taking a daily vitamin after I was pregnant with my son, and that was several years ago. Taking a daily mutilvitamin has a lot of benefits, and I was happy to see that my package from Puritan's Pride included a bottle of One Daily multivitamins for men, and a bottle for women, as well. I was ready to take on the daily multivitamin challenge with my hubby- after all, we could both use a little overall good health boost.
Our vitamin selection from Puritan's Pride included Men's and Women's One Daily Multivitamins, Omega 3 Fish Oil Capsuls, and B-12 Vitamins.
We already have B on a children's daily multivitamin, and hubby and I were excited to get back to taking vitamins geared specifically toward men and women. After taking our daily vitamins for a couple of weeks, we both began noticing small improvements in our overall health. We were feeling a bit more energized, our appetites were slightly curbed, and our skin and hair had a healthier glow to them (my fingernails are even stronger than usual).
I have also been taking the B-12 vitamins, because they are known to promote good circulation. Anyone who sits a lot may want to consider taking a B-12 vitamin. I am noticing more and more spider veins in my legs, which is partly caused by poor circulation.
Hubby and I are both taking the Omega-3 Fish Oil capsules. Heart problems run in both of our families, and in my family, it runs on both my mom and dad's sides. My dad lives with arrythmia, which basically means that his heart is never quite in rhythm. Taking care of my heart is especially important to me, because heart problems run in the family, and I am no stranger to stress and anxiety. I won't lie- fish oil capsules are gross- you can't taste them when you take them, but you can often take them later on (and I hate fish, if that tells you anything). I take these anyway, in hope that by doing so, my heart will be healthy and strong for a long, long time.
A balanced breakfast, complete with a daily vitamin from Puritan's Pride.
We take our vitamins with our balanced breakfast each morning. We make sure not to skip breakfast, drink some all natural orange juice when we take our vitamins, and we have our son take his chewy children's vitamin at this time, as well, so he will get into the habit of taking one everyday, and continue this one his own when he is older.
According to the National Institutes of Health, more than one-third of Americans take multi-vitamins—with about one in four young children taking a vitamin each day. With back to school time upon us, the kids are ready to go taking their vitamins and eating a healthy breakfast-- now it’s time for parents to get into their own healthy routines. Puritan’s Pride has put together some supplement suggestions to get back into the swing of fall and move to the head of the class.
