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.

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!

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!

 

Where to Start?

Where to startI’ve been asked several times lately where to start with vitamins and supplements and just generally being more healthy.  As I’ve said many times before, I’m not a doctor or a natural health expert.  I’m just passing on the things I’ve learned and recommending some products that have helped my family.

Sometimes I get excited about something I’ve learned and my gush comes across sounding like, “You really ought to try this!”  But what I really mean is, you really ought to read about this and see if you think this will be good for you or your family.

So, where to start?  The first thing to do is to check your daily water intake.  If you’re not already drinking half your body weight in ounces of water every single day–more if you’re exercising or working outside–start now.  If you weigh 120 pounds, drink at least 60 ounces of water every day.  Just rehydrating your body can do wonders for your overall health.  How cool is that?  You don’t have to order anything to get started!  Click here to read more about the benefits of drinking water.

If your diet is providing all the essential vitamins and minerals needed for good health, great!  But, if it’s not, consider taking a multivitaminBeeyoutiful provides a multivitamin for every member of the family:  SuperMom, SuperLady, SuperDad and SuperKids.  You can click on the links to read about each one, or you can click here to see all our vitamins on one page.

If you have specific health interests, search this blog and others you trust.  Read, read, read.  Talk with your health care provider and make informed decisions before you add supplements to your health regimen.

There are ten products, some of which have already been mentioned, featured in the picture at the top of this post.  You can click on the links below to read more about each one and to decide if one or more of these might be a part of your own getting started.

Where to start

Help for Hypoglycemia

I was recently asked to recommend supplements for someone who deals with hypoglycemia.  Since I didn’t know much about hypoglycemia, I turned to the official website of the University of Maryland Medical Center where I found suggestions for nutrition and supplements.

Following these nutritional tips may help reduce symptoms:

  • Eliminate suspected food allergens, such as dairy (milk, cheese, and ice cream), wheat (gluten), soy, corn, preservatives, and chemical food additives.  Your health care provider may want to test you for food allergies.
  • Eat foods high in B-vitamins and iron, such as whole grains (if no allergy), fresh vegetables, and sea vegetables.
  • Eat antioxidant foods, including fruits (such as blueberries, cherries, and tomatoes) and vegetables (such as squash and bell pepper).
  • Avoid refined foods, such as white breads, pastas, and sugar (unless you need them for an immediate blood sugar increase).
  • Soluble fiber, such as flaxseed and pure oat bran, can slow the rate at which dietary sugars enter the blood and help regulate blood sugars throughout the day.  Consume 1-3 tsp. of either of these fiber sources before meals.  Talk to your doctor first if you have a history of digestive disorders.
  • Some doctors may suggest a high protein diet, although evidence is mixed on the benefits.   A “Zone”-style diet combines proteins, fats, and carbohydrates in a 30/30/40 ratio and can be very helpful in maintaining stable blood sugar throughout the day.  Eat lean meats, preferably those that do not contain hormones or antibiotics.  Cold water fish or beans can also be used for protein.  Limit the intake of processed meats, such as fast foods and lunch meats.
  • Use healthy cooking oils, such as olive oil or coconut oil.
  • Reduce or eliminate trans fatty acids, found in commercially baked goods such as cookies, crackers, cakes, French fries, onion rings, donuts, processed foods, and margarine.
  • Avoid alcohol and tobacco.  Lower caffeine intake, as caffeine impacts several conditions and medications.
  • Exercise, if possible, 30 minutes daily, 5 days a week.  Light exercise may be advisable at first until you learn how to control your blood sugar and how to manage your diet to tolerate higher intensity exercise.

You may address nutritional deficiencies with the following supplements:

  • A daily multivitamin, containing the antioxidant vitamins A, C, E, the B-complex vitamins, and trace minerals such as magnesium, calcium, zinc, and selenium.  SFR recommendation:  SuperDad, SuperMom, or SuperLady
  • Omega-3 fatty acids, such as fish oil, to help decrease inflammation and help with immunity.  Omega-3 fatty acids can have a blood thinning effect.  People taking blood thinning medications should speak to their doctor before taking omega-3 fatty acids.  SFR recommendation:  Omega-3
  • Vitamin C, as an antioxidant and for immune support.  SFR recommendation:  Rosehip C
  • Magnesium, for nutrient support.  If you are taking blood pressure medication or other heart medication, speak to your doctor before taking magnesium.  Magnesium can interfere with certain medications, including some antibiotics and biphosphate medication.  SFR recommendation:  Magnesium Citrate
  • Chromium, for blood sugar regulation.  People with liver or kidney issues or history of psychiatric issues should talk to their doctor before starting chromium supplements.  SFR recommendation:  SuperDad (50 mcg of Chromium per serving); SuperMom (100 mcg of Chromium per serving); or SuperLady (150 mcg of Chromium per serving).
  • Probiotic supplement (containing Lactobacillus acidophilus), 5-10 billion CFUs (colony forming units) a day, when needed for maintenance of gastrointestinal and immune health.  SFR recommendation:  Tummy Tuneup (provides eight strains of bacteria, including Lactobacillus acidophilus, with 4 billion cultures in each capsule) OR Acidophilus Blast (provides one strain of bacteria, Lactobacillus acidophilus, and has 8 billion cultures per capsule). 

If you have hypoglycemia, please talk with your health care provider BEFORE adding any of these supplements to your daily regimen.  If you’re given the go-ahead to try these supplements, consider adding just one at a time.  Try it for a month or so before adding another, so that you can determine which supplements work best for you.  If you are helped by these suggestions and supplements, we would love to hear from you!bee

My Beeyoutiful Pantry

The title of this post is misleading.  My kitchen pantry is anything but beautiful.  Well, my daughter did just recently organize it for me, so it looks a lot better than it did.  Still, it’s not beautiful.  But it IS Beeyoutiful!My Beeyoutiful Pantry ~ Beeyoutiful products in my pantryI guess you can tell from this photo that this family loves Beeyoutiful!

It all started with SuperMom.  That was our first purchase from Beeyoutiful.  Now there are SuperMom tablets and Vcaps for the ladies and SuperDad for the guys.   (In case you’re looking for it, there’s no SuperDad in the picture.  We’re out except for the ones in the keepers on the top right shelf!)   Other favorites are Cod Liver Oil, Cranberry Power CleanseRed Raspberry Leaves, and, of course, Tummy Tuneup.  And we can’t forget the Miracle and all the awesome essential oils.  Do you see anything else here you recognize?

You know, we’d have a lot more room in the pantry if we didn’t use so many Beeyoutiful products!  But that is completely out of the question!

Thanks, Beeyoutiful, for beeyoutifying my pantry!  🙂
