The month of May has been declared “Family Wellness Month”. The first thing we ask is – why only a month? Of course, these designated “months” are a great opportunity to draw attention to a particular cause – and this is one that is particularly worthy, and we have dedicated our company to fulfilling.
Family wellness means wellness inside and out for everyone. Obviously, as a probiotic manufacturer and supplier, we have a huge focus on digestive health for the entire family – from our Life Start products for infants and expectant mothers, through to our Healthy Start powders, which can be subtly added to any food to add probiotic goodness to any meal, and our most potent flagship probiotic – Healthy Trinity capsules – all intended to keep the whole family fit and healthy.
This is great for health and physical fitness, but there is more to it than that. Which of these scenarios best describes “Family Wellness”:
1. Kids on the sofa with a bag of Cheetos, playing X-Box. Mom in the kitchen microwaving yet another pre-packaged TV dinner, no interaction, no family connection.
2. Family working together. Kids helping Mom prepare a healthy meal using fresh ingredients, chatting and teaching while doing so. Big happy smiles all round.
OK, we all know that these are two extremes, and not everyone is the model family straight from a soap-powder advertisement. But it does make a point – which of these scenarios best describes your family?
Perhaps family wellness month can be a little motivation for us all to get closer to that “live-right-eat-right” nirvana. We can use it at as trigger to get the kids to eat their greens, to get the family out for a weekend hike, to pay another visit to Grandma. To connect.
All of this sounds good on paper – here are a couple of ideas that may help turn these ideals into reality.
Only Natren probiotics can be customized to each family members’ needs. A probiotic regimen is as important as the right amount of exercise and a healthy diet. Digestive health leads to immune and brain health which leads to healthier, happier and more productive lives.
Family Wellness can be more that just making you feel good – it can mean making your family feel special too.

Halloween can be a lot of fun, for kids and adults. First, there are the costumes. Many families make a project out of this and actually make their own. If not, store bought costumes are easy to find and offer a huge range for all interests. This is your chance to be whomever you want.Then there are the parties. Some schools even have Halloween parades, which may just be the cutest thing ever. Adult Halloween parties can also be quite entertaining, especially with themed food and treats. Candy Is Not Dandy And then… there is the candy. Bags and plastic.... [Read More...]

From the moment we bring them home, our pets become members of the family. Obviously it is much easier to hug a dog or cat and feel a special bond with them than it is a goldfish, but animals of any kind bring much joy and happiness to our lives. We would do anything for our animal kin. Safe And Secure October is National Animal Safety And Protection Month. Perhaps it is not ironic that it is also Emotional Wellness Month. If our pets are not doing well it can take a huge emotional and mental toll on us, as.... [Read More...]
