Healthy Nut - Weekly Delivery


     At least once a month I get a box that looks like this...can you guess what might be in it?!?? Well, it is from Iherb. It is usually filled with vitamins, supplements, protein powder, and even some groceries. Iherb sells most of the supplements I use and ships for free if you spend over $20. As a mom of 3, I have a hard time getting to the local health store every time I need something. So the next best thing is Internet shopping! This is a smaller order since I only really needed kid vitamins. 
Below is a picture of the items I purchased. 
From the left:
1. Riboflavin 400mg - I take this at night for headaches. It's helps with cellular energy and I tend to have migraines from my TMJ so I take this in combination with magnesium 500mg and coQ10 150mg.
2. Natures Plus Animal Parade Gold Kids Multivitamin Chewable - This children's multivitamin was suggested to me by a holistic pediatrician. It is made with raw ingredients and is gluten, soy, dairy, and nut free. I use to give my kids probiotics and D3 but the new Gold formula now has both probiotics and d3 in it so I was able to eliminate to vitamins which my kids were happy about!! 
3. Organic Coconut Palm Sugar - This is one of my newer discoveries! I bought this more for my husband so he can use it in his morning coffee instead of the organic cane sugar. I have heard great things about it and excited to try. This is a great substitute for sugar because it has a low glycemic level, contains high levels of vitamins and minerals, and has 16 amino acids in it. 
4. Coromega 3 kid gummies - We have tried a million different kinds of omega chewables for the kids and by far they like these the best! It's so important to give your kids omega supplements because there is a good chance they aren't eating enough foods high in omegas. The healthy fatty acids from omega 3s help with your children's brain, heart, and joint development. And it helps with preventative disease for the future too. 
5. Arniflora also known as arnica gel - This is a miracle gel! It's a natural holistic pain reliever gel that you can put on sore muscles, joints, and bruises. Pretty much anything that hurts and its ingredients are all natural!  I've used it on my neck, back, and wrists! 
6. Biotin - Bottom line if you want your hair and nails to grow take this! 

The best advice I have for buying any vitamin or supplement is to check the ingredient list. Try to pick the one with the least amount of ingredients and fillers. And try to go organic and or all natural if possible. I even try to buy them without gluten, soy, and dairy.
