    VitaFusion Gummies 30-Day Challenge

    I am so excited to be taking part in a 30 Day Challenge! Lately I have been trying to instill some good healthy habits into my daily routine and remembering to take vitamins is one of them. The best thing about Vitafusion is that they are chewable gummies that are just like candy. I don’t need water and there is no aftertaste or hard to swallow.  I keep it by the computer desk now so every day I remember to take it! I love how it tastes and it’s hard to eat only 3.

    Vitafusion Gorgeous Hair, Skin and Nails is a great-tasting gummy multivitamin containing 12 key nutrients, including Biotin and Vitamins C and E to help nourish beautiful hair, skin, and nails from the inside out.

    • 2X the Biotin, an essential B vitamin that supports a healthy metabolism and gorgeous hair, skin and nails
    • 4X the powerful antioxidant Vitamins C and E
    • Vitamin C, an essential vitamin for the body’s production of collagen
    • Provides 100% of the recommended daily value of additional nutrients Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin B-6, and Vitamin B-12

    Versus the leading hair, skin and nails gummy supplement

     I’ll post an update in July!

     I also tried the Cherry Sleep Well Gummy too! These taste amazing and I love taking them!  Super health nuts may shy away from dummies because of the ‘extra’ carbs but this vitamin is made with real tart cherry extracts that have health benefits and not just flavor. I will continue to use these for the convenience and how easy it is.

    A good night’s sleep makes everything better, so catch some ZZZs and optimize your beauty rest with vitafusion™ Beauty Sleep. One serving of these great-tasting gummies provides 3 mg of Melatonin to support sleep, sleep cycle regulation, and to help you awake refreshed*, and 400 IU Vitamin D to support bone, teeth, muscle and immune health*

    • Infused with natural cherry-vanilla flavor
    • Gluten free

  • My Dog Jacob

    8 is the new 5 I’m so Hot Still @Arknaturals Treats

    …better crib, better food better automobiles…!  Jacob just turned 8 this year but he is still often mistaken for a puppy by people we meet. His energy level, health and attitude is still playful and happy and I attribute this to his diet and also some great supplements and all natural human-grade food we feed him!

     photo 2

    If 60 is the new 40 in human years, then why shouldn’t 15 be the new 10 in dog years.

    Recognizing that dogs – like their human companions – are indeed living longer and more fulfilling lives than ever before, a new brand of delicious vet-recommended soft chews called Gray Muzzle has just been introduced specifically to enable senior dogs to retain or recapture levels of heart, joint and cognitive health which they enjoyed in their youth.

    The most comprehensive senior-specific remedy products of their kind on the market, Gray Muzzle is the result of years of research into the specific formulations best able to help turn the canine clock back on the physical and mental effects of aging among all breeds and sizes.

    Unlike other products labeled “for senior dogs” that in reality feature re-purposed and re-branded non-senior formulations, Gray Muzzle very specifically addresses such vital age-related concerns as joint discomfort, heart function, cellular metabolism, blood flow, and canine cognitive dysfunction (CCD).

    A standalone brand created by all-natural pet product leader Ark Naturals, Gray Muzzle is sold exclusively at independent pet and natural product stores, as well as via select etailers, at a MSRP of $13.50. Manufactured entirely in the U.S. in USDA-APHIS approved facilities, all Gray Muzzle products are free of wheat, corn, yeast, and soy, as well as artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

    • Old Dogs! Happy Joints!for improved mobility and flexibility. Ingredients includeGlucosamine HCL (a shellfish source) to help build synovial fluid that creates space between the joints and keep cartilage from rubbing bone on bone; Fish Oil (Omega-3) components to help reduce joint discomfort; and Turmeric, an Ayurvedic herb from India used for thousands of years to help reduce the pain caused by sore joints. Contains 90 bite-size soft chews.

    Jacob loved this one!  The chewy pieces were easy for him to eat and he was excited as soon as the package opened. The ingredients make this product great and since we live in a walk-up apartment and duplex, Jacob’s joint health is very important for all the stairs he has to climb up and down everyday!

    • Heart Healthy! Wags Plenty!for improved heart health. Ingredients include Taurine, an amino acid that has beneficial effects on the heart and cardiovascular system; L-Carnitine, another amino acid that benefits the heart and has been shown to have a remarkable effect in the cellular metabolism of dogs; and Egg Albumin, which contains excellent sources of vitamin B6, B12 and riboflavin and helps regulate blood volume. Contains 60 bite-size soft chews.

    This heart one he chewed, spit out and ate again. He was not quite sure about this one but I told him it’s yummy you should eat it and he ate it anyway!  Heart health is important for dogs, especially when living in an exciting city like New York 😉

    • Brain’s Best Friend!for improved cognitive function in older dogs evidencing signs of CCD such as confusion, pacing, anxiety, staring into space, or inability to recognize family members. Ingredients include Fish Oil (Omega-3), which helps brain function; Vitamin E to protect cells and prevent free radical damage; Resveratrol, containing antioxidant properties that promote healthy brain activity and function; and Pyridoxine (Vitamin B6), which plays a significant role in making proteins and neurotransmitters that carry signals between the cells more effective. Contains 90 bite-size soft chews.

    Jacob was really excited about this one. He gobbled them up in 2 seconds no problem and wanted more!  Since the package advise to feed 2-4 a day for a dog 60 lbs he had his samples this morning and will have to wait until tomorrow for more!

    A dog is a forever friend! Make sure you take care of them and give them what they need so they can age gracefully.

    Susan Weiss, President of parent company Ark Naturals (and a founding member of the National Animal Supplement Council), said, “As a result of advances in pet care, many dogs are living well past the average life expectancy for their breed. Gray Muzzle was created to benefit those dogs who may chronologically be considered senior, but who aren’t at the end stages of their lives. The response to the brand among retailers and pet owners has been extraordinary, and we’re very proud to be helping dogs and humans alike get the most out of life every single day they’re together.”

    About Gray Muzzle – An Ark Naturals Company
    Introduced in 2013, Gray Muzzle is dedicated to keeping older dogs healthy so they can enjoy many of the activities they enjoyed when they were younger. GrayMuzzle offers exhaustively researched formulations to help senior dogs regain their youthful physical, cognitive, and emotional health and well-being.

    Pecans……Just Not Another Nut!

    Ways to Incorporate Pecans into a Healthy Lifestyle

    Pecans are easy to add to your eating plan; simply grab a handful!  Pecans are healthy and delicious, and just a one-ounce serving (15- 20 pecan halves) packs more than 19 vitamins and minerals, fiber and protein to keep you going.  They’re a perfect snack for both children and adults.    Often associated with indulgences and occasional treats, pecans can also be eaten in healthier forms and cooked or baked in a wide variety of foods to add flavor and nutrition.  Delicious recipes can be found or created using pecans for breakfast, salads, entrees and side dishes.

                                                           Warm Pasta Salad with Pecans and Spinach 

                                                   Check out these  recipes at  http://ilovepecans.org/

                                                                 Romain, Pecan and Pear Salad               

                                    Heart-Healthy Pecans

    Nearly 60 percent of the fats in pecans are monounsaturated and another 30 percent are polyunsaturated, leaving very little saturated fat in pecans. The unsaturated fat in pecans is heart-healthy fat meeting the new Dietary Guidelines that recommend Americans keep intake between 20 and 35 percent of calories, with most fats coming from heart-healthy sources like fish, nuts and vegetable oils. In addition, pecans contain no trans fat.

                                   Nutrient-Dense Pecans

    Pecans contain more than 19 vitamins and minerals – including vitamin A, vitamin E, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, several B vitamins and zinc. One ounce of pecans provides 10 percent of the recommended Daily Value for fiber. Pecans are also a natural, high-quality source of protein that contain very few carbohydrates and no cholesterol. Pecans are also naturally sodium-free, making them an excellent choice for those on a salt- or sodium-restricted diet.
