As a busy mom of two toddlers, the last thing I want to do is get sick. You know how it is…one person gets a cold, then all of a sudden you have an epidemic on your hands. Somehow the illness passes from one person to another, and before you know it, you are contemplating whether or not to burn down the house just so that you can get rid of all the viruses and germs. Meanwhile, life doesn’t stop so you are busy carrying both your toddler and your baby while hauling a gazillion grocery bags and the ever-so-important but weighs-a-ton diaper bag around when all you want to do is just drop dead on the bed and take a nice long nap.
Before I became a mom, I knew I should be taking vitamins, minerals, and supplements to help enhance my health. However, I always got lazy or just plain forget and as a result, my pantry was full of expired bottles of expensive supplements. Now, as a busy mom who is lacking sleep as well as time to eat wholesome meals, I know I need help filling the nutritional gaps in my diet. Especially since I am breastfeeding, my nutrition and health is of ultimate importance since it translates to the food I am providing my baby through my breast milk. Therefore, I am very diligent about taking all the vitamins, minerals, and supplements every day so that I can stay healthy for myself and my family. Yes, even when I have already gotten in bed and pulled the warm blanket over me, I will get up to take my vitamins if I have forgotten.
One brand that I have always trusted is Nature Made®. With the variety of vitamins, minerals, and supplements they offer at Ralphs (operated by Kroger), I have no problem stacking my shelves with what I need as a breastfeeding mom. With the kids going back to school, I am looking to improve my digestive health. Since I am already taking Nature Made® Postnatal Multi + 200 mg DHA, B-Complex, and Fish Oil, I naturally looked for the Nature Made® brand when I searched for probiotics at Ralphs.
Looking at the different probiotics Ralphs stocked, Nature Made® Advanced Probiotics really caught my eye because of the graphics on the front cover of the box explaining how Advanced Dual Action Probiotics work in your small intestine and large intestine. It helps support digestive balance and healthy gut flora†. I knew probiotics are “good” bacteria with really long Latin names like Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium that push out bad bacteria to deliver digestive benefits, but I never knew that different strains work in different parts of the intestine. Moreover, Nature Made® Advanced Probiotics is 100% vegetarian, gluten & dairy free, and gentle enough for everyday use. And taking them is easy – just two pills a day with a glass of water and you get 15 billion live cultures per serving*!
I always strive to be active and live a healthy lifestyle so that I can be a good role model for my kids. Since there is no time to go to the gym, I do the best I can to get my blood pumping and muscles working by chasing after my kids. And since there is barely time to eat, I try to stick with healthy alternatives even when I am eating on the go. A mom does not get sick days, and the last thing we want to do is get our children sick, so thank goodness we have help giving our health a boost with supplements like Nature Made® Advanced Probiotics!
