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!

Are You Smarter than a 7th Grader?

7th grade Life Science questions: 

  • Are bones alive?
  • What two substances comprise the bone matrix?
  • True or False:   Bones increase or decrease their mass as needed.

Are you smarter than a 7th grader?

If you’ve studied the 7th grade Apologia textbook, Exploring Creation with General Science, you know the answers to these questions!

IMG_2153[1]

Are bones alive?  Yes, your bones are composed of living cells.  Bone continually changes to meet your body’s needs.

What two substances comprise the bone matrix?  Collagen and minerals.  Collagen is a flexible substance that belongs to a class of chemicals known as proteins.  Minerals are substances found naturally in the earth.  Collagen and minerals work together to make bones both strong and flexible.  The collagen gives bones their flexibility; the minerals give bones their hardness.

True or False:  Bones increase or decrease their mass as needed.  True.  Bones that bear weight must be firm.  So, if you exercise, your bones will be stressed and will respond by increasing their mass to become more firm.  If you are inactive, bone tissue will be taken away.

General Science

Now!  We’re all at least as smart as the 7th graders who’ve studied this book!

I’m getting the exercise my bones need now, but I still have a lot to learn about the minerals.  Calcium is only one of the minerals my bones need.

What have you learned?  Care to share?  I’d love to hear from you.  Email or comment and tell me what you’ve added to your diet to help your bones.  Thanks!
