Most people try to live a healthy lifestyle but it’s not always easy to do. Sometimes things get a little crazy and you can’t squeeze your exercise routine in or you grab take-out instead of a nice healthy home cooked meal. I know it happens at my house more than I want it to. That’s life. I do take a multi-vitamin and we try to get exercise 4-5 times a week, mostly with outdoor routines like riding bike. When winter rolls around we tend to get a little more sluggish – yikes! I don’t know about you but I always feel better when I am getting my exercise in – I think it’s a great stress reliever.
I’m always on the look-out for ways to lead a healthier lifestyle. I was recently asked to try a new supplement product from the makers of Centrum. It’s a new line of products that are just now hitting the market called ProNutrients. I visited the ProNutrients website for more information on the product and then visited the Centrum Facebook Page for a $3 dollar off coupon. There are three varieties in the new line of supplements; Fruit & Veggie, Probiotic and Omega 3. According to the website all three supplements are designed to naturally work with your multivitamin to further support your health. I wonder if the Fruit and Veggie supplement comes in kid size? One thing that I really liked about the ProNutrients Omega3 mini-gel capsule is that it is small, much smaller than its competitor.
I have always heard a lot of talk about how important fish oil is for your body but wasn’t sure why. So I wanted to find out more about it. Here’s a quick run down of what I found on the ProNutrient website with regards to Omega3. In general, what I found is that Omega-3s are essential fatty acids. Two of these fatty acids are referred to as EPA and DHA which the body can synthesize in only small amounts. Research has shown that EPA and DHA help support heart health, brain structure, and eye structure. I have also heard that fish oil along with a healthy lifestyle including exercise was good for your cholesterol levels. Since my husband is currently trying to lower his cholesterol levels we decided to give it a try. In addition to taking the ProNutrient Omega-3 supplement, he has started playing basketball two times a week and has been trying to watch what he eats. It won’t be until the next check-up that we find out if any of this is working, but it can’t hurt. We’re hoping this works, but we’ve also got a few other ideas to lower his cholesterol if this treatment doesn’t work. One of my friends was trying to lower her bad cholesterol levels not too long ago. She found that Atorvastatin helped her to achieve better health, so she recommended that we find out more about it to see whether it would be beneficial for my husband. Alongside his current exercise schedule, that medication could be really useful. Perhaps we’ll try that out if this current medication doesn’t work. Stay tuned to see if it does work!

I am all for anything that makes nutrition easier! I saw these recently at the store and just found a coupon for them last week!
Interesting! I took fish oil capsules (I’m a vegetarian so I didn’t get it through my food) during pregnancy and was warned about mercury…but I looked it up and it seems they are safe. They use fish lower on the food chain that have less mercury contamination. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for sharing this. I take 6 vitamins most days (I’d say about 4 days a week is how often I remember) and although I can’t stand the process, I do admit that it’s been great for me. I’d be interested in checking out the Omega 3s or Fruits & Veggies. The last thing I want is more vitamins, but I will admit that adding them, lots of water, and being more regular with my work out schedule has made a load of difference for a blogger who sits at a computer all day (off and on the job).
I’m taking the fruit and veggie supplement and think I will start the Omega 3 soon!
