Healthy for the holidays multi review and giveaway (closed)

Pedia-lax Fiber Gummies
My girls have "tummy issues" a lot and I try to get them to eat a balanced diet but it is not as easy as it sounds. Paige eats most anything I give her but Piper is a tough one. She refuses to eat anything green and will only eat a small selection of meats. In only 2 weeks I have seen a reduction in their "tummy troubles".

The holiday season can be a hectic time of year, making it difficult for parents to know whether or not the kids are eating enough of the right foods. In fact, did you know a four-year-old child should consume 25 grams of fiber daily, while an 11-year-old boy needs at least 31 grams.
While food options are the best, Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies, a tasty, daily fiber supplement that helps kids ages 2-11 stay regular and maintain better digestive health*, are a great way to supplement the fiber found in fruits, vegetables and other fiber-rich foods. One daily serving of three Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies provides 6 grams of fiber, the amount of fiber equivalent to 21 spears of asparagus!
Retail price is $7.99 for a bottle of 60 gummies; available at Walmart, Target and Walgreens

Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies is also on Facebook, so be sure to find Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies on Facebook to sample products and for a chance to win more fan prizes.

Pedia care
I was sent these 2 medications for my girls:
PediaCare Children's Fever Reducer/Pain Reliever & PediaCare Children's Fever Reducer Plus Multi-Symptom Cold
They get sick a lot and I always keep cold medicine and fever reducer on hand. Piper is actually still getting over a cold and I have been using these for a couple days. They seem to keep her comfortable and reduce her symptoms.

 Statistics show that preschool-aged children have around nine colds per year, kindergartners can have 12 colds per year and adolescents have about seven colds per year (cold season runs from September through March/April).



Introducing, the PediaCare® line of products – with and without acetaminophen -- for children and infants – which address most sick-child situations: cough, cold, allergy, flu, congestion, fever and pain. Product offerings, in kid-pleasing flavors, match the formulations of the recent recall of children’s Tylenol products and are arriving in stores just in time for the cold/flu season.
PediaCare products retail for approximately $6.99

Cystex Liquid Cranberry Complex with Proantinox

As a mom I am the last one I worry about when it comes to my needs and health. Only dealing with it when I have to go to the doctor because something is wrong. I have started taking these 2 products as a preventative.

Cranberries have long played a role in helping many women, particularly those with recurring urinary tract infections (UTIs), to promote better bladder health. In fact, some 50 percent of women report drinking a lot of cranberry juice when they suspect they have a UTI, according to a survey conducted for Cystex. But drinking eight glasses of cranberry juice is not enjoyable or tolerable, and can be loaded with sugar and calories. A clinically-proven alternative is just one tablespoon of new Cystex Liquid Cranberry Complex with Proantinox taken daily (equals 8 glasses of cranberry juice) to promote urinary tract health, which can benefit millions of women most susceptible to recurring, painful urinary tract infections.


Kinoko AHCC

A new clinical study at Michigan State University conducted by Dr. Elizabeth Gardner, one of the country’s top researchers in nutritional immunology, showed that AHCC enhances the effectiveness of the seasonal flu shot. So whether you are getting a flu shot or skipping it, make AHCC a part of your immune arsenal to fend off viruses both during the flu season and all year round. Kinoko AHCC from Quality of Life Labs is available at independent health food stores as well as online at www.yesAHCC.com. AHCC is also now available at Vitamin Shoppe and at most Whole Foods stores nationwide.

New Certain Dri Solid Antiperspirant (for men & women)

When I put on deoderant in the AM by late afternoon I feel the need to put it on again. I have started using the Certain Dri antiperspirant I was sent and it has eliminated that insecure feeling. You put it on at bedtime and it protects all day long. The smell is a nice baby powder fresh too.

Certain Dri is the number one over-the-counter antiperspirant recommended by doctors for treating excessive perspiration. New to the Certain Dri line of antiperspirant products is Certain Dri Solid, equally effective and specially-formulated for those with sensitive skin. While other over-the-counter antiperspirants claim to be “clinical strength” and “waterproof” the Certain Dri formulations – 12% aluminum chloride and 25% aluminum sesquichlorohydrate - are the strongest available, providing 72-hours of protection with each application. Retail price is $5.50-$6, almost 40% less than the other clinical strength antiperspirant products.


Dermatologists have been recommending Certain Dri Anti-Perspirant Roll-On to help control excessive sweating of the feet (helps prevent blisters) and hands, too. Same directions apply. Apply sparingly at night and let completely dry before washing hands or feet, getting dressed or slipping into bed.
