It is not a secret that what we eat has a huge impact on how we feel. Have you ever over-eaten or not felt well after you ate something? That feeling is often your body’s way of letting you know it’s not impressed with your dietary choices.

It should be a wake-up call to pay attention to our lifestyle choices, but in the busyness of everyday living, we often don’t pay attention to those signals.

Benefits of Tart Cherry

I know what I should be eating each day, but I don’t always do it. For instance, a kale salad is typically a better choice than a bowl of pasta, but we don’t always follow the dietary advice as we should. Even if we always chose the healthier option, we sometimes wouldn’t be able to get enough of the vitamins and minerals we need from food alone. This is why we take daily supplements. 

Tart Cherries are different from sweet cherries sold at the grocery store. Tart cherries (or sour cherries) are normally found dried or frozen and have been found to have benefits including helping to aid in muscle recovery from exercise.*

Benefits of Ester-C® Vitamin C

Most people may not be aware that not all Vitamin C is created equal. Ester-C® differs from traditional Vitamin C, such as Ascorbic Acid, due to the unique manufacturing process. Since Ester-C is manufactured using a water-based process it results in a pH-neutral form of Vitamin C which makes it gentle on the stomach. Some people find that their stomach becomes irritated when taking regular forms of Vitamin C, but Ester-C’s® unique metabolite is non-acidic and stomach-friendly due to this unique process and is better retained than regular Vitamin C.*

Supporting our immune system and joint health are important as we age.* As our bodies change, our needs change, which is why I have started to think more long-term about my joint health. I want to keep moving as I age so I can enjoy my morning walks and quiet time in nature. I’ve started taking Osteo Bi-Flex® supplements, so I can keep doing the things I love with joint support on my side.* The joint health brand has a range of products designed to help people stay active as they age.
