Disclosure: This post for keeping kids healthy was generously sponsored by A. Vogel and I was compensated and given product to facilitate this post, but as always, my opinion is my own.
Every year as the weather changes and school starts we end up sick. This year was no exception but man it was a roller coaster of sickness that started the first week back to school and finally ended last week with my last little finally getting over a cold and finding out he may be asthmatic. It’s been a crazy couple of months and I decided that we needed to up our game and really start fighting back. I started giving my kids a multi-vitamin more regularly and I started giving them Echinaforce Jr. from A. Vogel supplements daily as well. Since they started taking those daily, I have noticed a decrease is stuffy, runny noses and I love that it’s an all-natural choice to help keep them healthy especially during the cold and flu season.
I think my favourite product in the arsenal of winter cold fighting supplements that I received from A. Vogel, is the Echinaforce Jr. This is one my kids are taking daily and I love that I can give it to all my kids that are going to school to help them fight off all the germ bugs that ultimately come home with each and every one of them. This little chewable can help them stay healthier this winter and help make sure the baby doesn’t get sick too.
A.Vogel Echinaforce® Junior Echinacea Tabs helps your immune system stop germs before an infection takes hold. The active ingredients in this remedy decrease the ability of infectious agents to penetrate within the body’s cells. They also improve the speed at which the immune cells respond to invading germs.
A.Vogel Echinaforce® Junior Echinacea Tabs can be taken daily for prevention of infections. Prevention is especially important for those who are more vulnerable to developing infections, it helps to:
- maintain an immune system that remains on alert and deals promptly with the first signs of infection
- reduce the need for antibiotics or other prescription medication
- helps maintain a better quality of life with fewer sick days away from school or the office
Next up in the arsenal, is Bio-Strath. This elixir helps promote well-being by decreasing fatigue and supports the body during periods of physical and mental stress. With my daughter being in high school and the added stress that it can bring as well as being a work-at-home mom, I will tell you that having a product that can help us get through some of the crazy days is welcome in my house.
Bio-Strath contains 61 vital substances in an easily absorbable formula allowing the body to tap into its full potential. A clinical study showed a 64% improvement in regards to concentration, fatigue, vitality and reaction, physical and mental efficiency. Honestly, after using it for the past few weeks, I feel less tired, more alert and less scatter-brained. I can’t say 100% for sure that it is the Bio-Strath but I can tell you that is the only extra I have added to my daily routine. If I had one complaint about the product at all is that the smell is less than appealing but I think that could be easily rectified by taking the tablet form instead of the liquid. I do like the liquid for the kids though as it’s easier for them to take.
Last but definitely not least, is the AromaForce lavender essential oil. I have been using essential oils for the better part of a year now, although at first, I was a skeptic. I have now found several different blends have helped me deal with things like headaches and achiness and the lavender has been an essential part of my relaxation routine. I used it in my Epsom salts for my baths and I diffuse it in my diffuser at nighttime to help us sleep better. The A. Vogel AromaForce essential oils are 100% pure and natural, unaltered and undiluted (except for Frankincense) giving you the highest quality assured by laboratory testing. WIth uses such as body care, home spa, home ambiance and household uses, essential oils can become a big part of your everyday.
Overall, I am happy with all of these essentials for our cold and flu season and I am sure that any of you would be too. For more information on any of the A Vogel products or to find out where you can purchase your own, please visit A. Vogel Canada.
