Happy Summer!

DSC_0131.JPGMonday was the official first day of summer!

For those of you who are teachers and homeschooling parents, summer brings a change of pace from the rest of the year.  During this time of regrouping and planning for next year, I hope you’ll also consider the supplements that will help your family in the year to come. Even if summer is just a change of temperature for you, it’s still a good time to consider adding a multivitamin to your daily regimen.

It’s my personal belief that every American needs to take a multivitamin!  I know you make healthy choices and prepare nutritious meals for your family.  But because of the food options that are available to us, not many of us can meet all of our nutritional needs with diet alone.  Thankfully, the Beeyoutiful Supers are available to help fill in the nutritional gap.

If you’re not already taking a multivitamin, resolve to change that this summer!  This is an especially good time to start because of our referral points plan!  As I said, I think EVERYONE needs a multivitamin.  So talk to your friends and encourage them to start this summer, too.  When your friends purchase any Beeyoutiful’s multivitamins from Smith Family Resources- SuperDad, SuperMom, SuperLady, SuperKids, or SuperMom 2 Bee- you can earn referral points which can be redeemed for FREE multivitamins!

If your friends are ordering online, tell them to click the box by “Referral?” and enter your name.  If they’re ordering by email or phone, they should mention your name at the time the order is placed.  You’ll automatically receive one point for each individual vitamin order and four points for a Beeyoutiful Family Pack order!  (Maximum referral points per friend=4)

Ten points may be redeemed for one bottle of the Super vitamin of your choice- absolutely free with no shipping charge!  (Referral points have no cash value and may not be redeemed for any other products.)  When you’ve earned ten points, we’ll contact you by email and send your free vitamins on their way to you.

Get started earning referral points!  Invite your friends to try Beeyoutiful multivitamins by sharing these links:

SuperDad!

We think every man can benefit from SuperDad!  SuperDad is a high-potency multivitamin with spirulina and green foods and is recommended for teenaged boys as well as adult men.

Here’s what Beeyoutiful customers say about SuperDad…SuperDad pic

• Valerie:  My husband is a farmer and works very long hours.  He complained of always feeling drained, tired and no energy.  When he takes this, there is a difference in him.  He is getting the vitamins and nutrients that his body needs to work so hard!!

• Steven:  I’ve been using SuperDad for a few years now. I can really feel a difference if I run out and don’t take it for a few days.

• Hannah:  My husband has never been a big vitamin taker, but once he started taking these he really noticed a difference.  He said he had more energy and over all felt good!  He is now the one that reminds me that he needs more vitamins, not me reminding him he needs to take them!

SuperMom – More than the RDA?

SuperMomSuperMom vitamins are fortified with green foods and are chock-full of vitamins and minerals, including Beta-Carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, and the all-important B vitamins.  If you peruse the ingredient list below, you’ll notice that the quantities of some vitamins and minerals actually exceed the RDA.

More than the RDA?  Should you take more than the Recommended Daily Allowance?  In many cases, yes!

The RDA is based primarily on the prevention of deficiency disease, rather than the promotion of optimum health.  Consider the lesser-known UL, which stands for Tolerable Upper Intake Level.

Take Vitamin C for example…  The RDA of Vitamin C for females aged 19-70 is 75 mg. SuperMom provides 500 mg, 830% of the RDA.  That sounds excessive until you consider that the UL of Vitamin C for females aged 19-70 is 2,000 mg.

Check the numbers for yourself at the USDA National Agricultural Library website.  You’ll find that SuperMom provides more than just what you need to get by; it provides what you need to actually feel better!

Be Focused!

Is anybody out there dealing with attention deficit issues?

If you or someone you love has ADHD, you know that being focused is nothing to take for granted!

We deal with ADHD at our house, and we choose not to use prescription medications.  Instead, we’ve opted to drink more water, eat more nutritiously, get more exercise, and to take healthy supplements.

A multivitamin is in order for most people.  The average American diet just doesn’t provide the body with everything it needs.  And the brain, just as every other part of the body, needs good nutrition to work properly.  We recommend SuperKids for children between the ages of 4 and 12.  For teens, we recommend SuperDad for the boys and SuperMom or SuperLady for the girls.

Cod Liver Oil has been called “Food for the Brain” because of its potential benefits to the brain and nervous system.  Some research suggests that the omega fatty acids in Cod Liver Oil may play a role in healthy brain development in babies and children.

Studies have shown that many people who have ADHD also have a deficiency of Vitamin B.  For that, we recommend B-Better,  a B Vitamin complex that includes thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), biotin, folic acid and the cobalamins (vitamin B12).

Bee FocusedAnd now, Beeyoutiful has introduced a blend of essential oils known for being both kid-friendly and extremely supportive of those struggling with attention problems.  Bee Focused can be applied on the bottoms of the feet, on the chest, and down the spine and neck.  We just started using Bee Focused today in our home, so it’s too soon to talk about results just yet.  But it might be worth noting that, while an unfocused school day sometimes lasts into the evening, today we finished school at 2:00!

 

Vitamin B Complex

Just what is the Vitamin B complex?  The vitamin B-complex refers to all of the known essential water-soluble vitamins except for vitamin C:  thiamine (Vitamin B1), riboflavin (Vitamin B2), niacin (Vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (Vitamin B5), pyridoxine (Vitamin B6), biotin, folic acid, and cobalamin (Vitamin B12).

I’ve been gleaning as much nutrition information as I can from Sally Fallon’s Nourishing Traditions.  Here are some excerpts about B vitamins and their importance to our overall health:

Nourishing Traditions, Sally FallonDark green, leafy vegetables, such as spinach, chard and beet greens contain abundant vitamins and minerals, particularly B vitamins, calcium and trace minerals, and should be included in the diet on a regular basis-at least once or twice a week.

Pineapple is high in fiber and contains carotenoids, B-complex vitamins and vitamin C.

Deficiency of the B vitamin complex can result in the enlargement and malfunction of almost every organ and gland in the body.

If you aren’t sure your diet includes a sufficient quantity of these very important B vitamins, consider supplementing with Beeyoutiful’s B-BetterB-Better contains thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, biotin, folic acid, and pantothenic acid.  Click on the links or the picture below for complete nutrition facts.  B-Better
