On a quest toward health with help from vitafusion™ (plus $100 giveaway!)

 

Two tasty little cherry-flavored gummies can give you your daily B12!

 

I'm on a quest right now to Get Healthy (I always think of it as a trademarkable phrase), so I was delighted when BlogHer and vitafusion™ gave me an amazing resource to try out toward that goal: vitafusion™ Extra Strength B-12.

These gummy vitamins are a yummy, enjoyable boost to my daily nutrition. Since February (we're a little slow on the uptake for New Year's resolutions), Sam and I have forsworn grains and also most refined sugar. For those of you following along regularly, we gave up grains about two and a half years ago at about 80-90% compliance, but we decided to be absolutely strict about it for a while, and for kicks, also see if we could do without added sugars. It's a challenge, but a worthy one!

That's why I'm always on the lookout for ways to ensure we're meeting our daily nutritional goals. I'm happy we're eating more whole foods and am confident that will help us meet our health needs, but I'm never sure what gaps there might be. For one thing, I don't eat the most varied diet. I like certain things and am not keen on others, so I tend to eat the same (delicious) meals over and over. Plus, I recently gave birth and am breastfeeding, so I know my nutritional needs are heightened. That's why supplements give me that extra boost of reassurance that I'm doing what I can to be complete.

Of course, it doesn't do any good if the vitamins I take aren't healthy in themselves. That's why I love that all vitafusion™ products are gluten-free and made with natural fruit flavors and colors derived from real fruits, vegetables, and plants. Beyond that, though, they taste so good! Forget swallowing hard tablets — I just pop and chew two tangy, cherry-flavored gummies once a day for a burst of fun and flavor. I can take them anywhere, making them very convenient to travel with as well. I've made supplements such a part of my daily habit that I rarely forget to take them, but if I did, I could easily grab one of these on the go — no need to find a glass of water first.

 

Tip: Link your vitamin-taking to a daily habit that's already well established.
For me, I take them just before I brush my teeth at night,
and it's a pleasant, healthful end to my day!

 

And did I mention we're off most added sugars? That means I really, really, really enjoy this daily indulgence of something so tart and tasty. These are not vitamin-y tasting; they're just plain yum. After all, being healthy should also be enjoyable! It's what vitafusion™ calls "healthy fusion," and I couldn't agree more.

 

Buy it!

You can find vitafusion™ at club, mass, drug and grocery stores nationwide including: Costco, Walmart, Target and Walgreens. Find more information at www.gummyvites.com.

If you're looking for a brand for your kiddos, try L’il Critters™. My kids love their daily multivitamin and Vitamin D gummies! L’il Critters™ gummy vitamins have no high fructose corn syrup or synthetic (FD&C) dyes, and they're gluten free.

You can find vitamins, minerals, and other dietary supplements from vitafusion™ and L’il Critters™ to meet your health needs through every stage of life. There are products tailored to meet the specific health needs of children, men, women, pregnant women, and those 50+.

I have been diagnosed with Type2 Diabetes. So we have overhauled our diet and gotten a gym membership. My goal is to actually go to the gym now. It's hard when you work from home and homeschool to find the time, but I have to make the time so I can still be here with them.
