Some people know me as the girl behind this blog, that Willamette Valley Wonder Woman. Other people know me as the President of our grade school’s PTO in this little town. Some patients call me their nurse for eight hours.
The most important name I have though is ‘Mom’, and with the rise in health issues among youth that I’ve personally witnessed in my line of work, I’m always searching for ways to keep my children’s nutrition in check.
My kids love fruit, but I have to face it – there’s still no way that we consume enough servings everyday. Life gets busy, fresh fruit spoils quickly, and I’ve got the reputation of that ‘mean mom’ who won’t buy those corn-syrup drenched canned fruits for my kids. I have to admit, there are some days I’m lucky if they eat a few slices of apple at lunch time.
And that’s not right.
I’m not into most fads and pills that are out there, but recently my family had been using FruitsMax as an extra immune boost, and its just like the name sounds: fruits to the max. FruitsMax is a chewable fruit and probiotic supplement.
That’s it. A combination of 21 fruits and L. Acidophilus probiotics.
What is L. Acidophilus probiotics? Well, nicknamed “Narine”, they are organisms already in our digestive systems that help promote ‘good’ bacteria and kill the ‘bad’ bacteria.
It helps promote our digestive health.
My first question was, “How do they get all of those fruits into one chewable pill without loosing nutritional value?” So I checked into it. It’s pretty cool. Its something called lyophilization technology and you can read more about it on their website.
It’s great knowing that we can have something that has no preservatives, and 12 essential vitamins, 11 minerals, and all the great antioxidants that are in fruit when we just can’t fit enough servings of fruits into our days.
The FruitsMax website can explain it way better than I can, so go check it out and see what you think. I researched it and found absolutely no negatives, so I tried it, and am loving the digestive health benefits that it offers!
Right now FruitsMax is offering the first bottle to customers FREE and you just pay shipping and handling so you can try it and see for yourself, and if you sign up for their newsletters they will give you 15% off too!
