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.

We often get asked when is the best time to take probiotics – morning, evening, before or after food. Taking probiotics at any time is better than not taking them at all, of course, but taking probiotics at the right time can optimize the health benefits of this supplement. Staying on a regular routine can be difficult for some people, as hectic lifestyles can make it hard to do anything at the same time each day. Other people take so many medications that they simply add probiotics to the handful of pills they already take, with little regard as to.... [Read More...]

What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a long-lasting or chronic disorder that causes muscle pain and an overall feeling of tiredness. People with this condition experience pain and tenderness throughout many parts of their body. It is often associated with other chronic conditions such as Chronic fatigue syndrome, endometriosis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and more. Anyone can get this but it does occur more frequently in women and often starts in middle age.
