Finally...Some Supplements that actually HELPED!

Thursday, January 10, 2008

Like a lot of you, I've tried many different vitamins and supplements. In the last year (or two, or three....or who knows how long?!) I have felt very, very tired and run-down, and always like I was just one step away from getting sick. During this time I have done things like eating a mostly raw-foods diet, or exercising 4-5 days a week, or trying some new vitamin that someone told me made them feel great. Well, for me, none of those things helped. I gained a pound a week (for 7 weeks straight!) while I ate a 100% raw foods diet (!!!!!), only felt more tired and more hungry when I was working out, and the vitamins didn't give me any energy but did succeed in making me constipated! (Thank You Iron!!) ugh.

As most of you know, I have six children, plus homeschool, plus run my businesses, plus have a husband. I Need Energy!! I had been watching projects pile up, things going undone, and just felt too stinkin' tired all the time to get a handle on any of it.

Recently I was doing some reading and two new supplements caught my eye. Because of my desperation to feel better, I got both (they were very reasonably priced) and started taking them. The first time I took them was at night, and by the next morning I was literally BURSTING with energy. That day I worked around my house conquering all sorts of projects and chores for at least 12 HOURS!!! It was amazing! Since then I have continued to have a lot of energy, except on the days when I realize I have forgotten to take the stuff. It has been since December 23 and I am still GOING STRONG and feeling SO thankful that I found these supplements.

As usual, I don't clutter up my store here with just any old thing you can buy. (There are plenty of places like that on the web) Supermom's Health and Wellness exists to offer you products that I personally feel are very worthwhile. So, of course, I had to bring these products to you.

The first product is called Bee Strong, and it is a bee propolis supplement. This is well-known for giving lots of energy, and it certainly works for me. Of course, if you have a bee allergy, this isn't going to be something for you to take.

The second product is called Berry Well and it is an elderberry syrup with good stuff like raw honey, raw apple cider vinegar, among other ingredients. Berry Well is intended to be taken if you are sick, or feeling like you're getting sick. I decided to take it since I could tell that my immune system just wasn't very good. Although I do experience good amounts of energy when I take the Bee Strong, I feel really, really, REALLY great on the days when I take Berry Well. I really enjoy it mixed into my healthy lemonade, and that has proven to be a great way to give it to my children. (You could even make it into a popsicle for sick little ones that need a health boost!) The taste of the syrup is fine and not objectionable, but when I put it in the lemonade it just makes a yummy berry lemonade that is very refreshing. (It mixes up great in juice as well)

I highly, HIGHLY recommend these new products to you. If it helps you feel half as good as I've been feeling, you will be THRILLED that you gave it a try!
