Since suffering through some debilitating morning sickness in my last pregnancy, I mentioned to the Carrots FB community that I was brainstorming nutrition and supplement changes in order to get healthy and (hopefully) avoid the extreme morning sickness if we’re blessed with another pregnancy. In addition to decreasing sugar intake in order to promote a healthy gut, I want to work hard to increase my magnesium levels and B vitamin intake (two big players in the anti-morning sickness league!). Carrots reader and Shaklee representative, Angela Thomas, sent me some B-Complex and agreed to a giveaway so we can all get healthy together!
A Little Bit About Shaklee:
My mom was green before it was cool and we grew up using Shaklee products because they’re non-toxic and high quality, but I haven’t tried out their supplements in my adult life until now. Shaklee performs over 100,000 quality tests a year. The ingredients are tested before they even go into production – both in house and 3rd party. What I didn’t know until recently is that Shaklee is the first company in the world to be Climate Neutral certified which means they fully offset their carbon emissions for a net-zero impact on the environment. I knew they were a green company, but I didn’t know they took sustainability so seriously. So I was excited for the chance to try out some Shaklee supplements!
B12 is known for providing a boost in energy and after a couple of weeks of taking the supplement, I did notice that I was feeling more energetic (despite those middle of the night nursing sessions with Baby Gwen!). It also contains Folic Acid, which I try to take regularly (my Dr. told me that all sexually-active women should take folic acid because it decreases risk of neural tube defects in babies.) But Folic Acid is really hard for your body to absorb in supplement form, so Shaklee’s B-Complex has a Patented Bioactivated Absorption System to help your body effectively absorb the vitamins. I take the supplement first thing in the morning because B vitamins can help reduce sugar cravings which is something I struggle with. I’ve been very happy with the product and I’m excited to give my readers the opportunity to win a bottle!
The giveaway winner will receive Shaklee’s B-Complex (a blend of all eight B vitamins) and a Shaklee membership which includes 15% off Shaklee purchases. Giveaway closes on Friday, August 30th at midnight EST. Residents of the U.S. only (sorry, international readers, we love you!)
There are two ways to enter the giveaway and you can do one or both.
1. Visit the Shaklee website and leave a comment telling us what product you are most interested in.
2. “Like” Angela’s Shaklee FB page and leave a separate comment telling us you did.
Keep in mind that you have to leave a separate comment if you enter a second time.
I think Shaklee’s B-Complex is a great product to take between pregnancies, for busy moms, or for anyone who wants to boost their energy and replenish their B vitamin levels. I will announce a winner next week. Good luck!
