Swiss Natural Giveaway!

Pin It Alright, folks! Here it is- my first giveaway!

Swiss Natural sent me a care package a few weeks ago and since I've been feeling amazing by using their supplements. I didn't have my giveaway right away because I wanted to actually use the product for a significant amount of time! My favourites include Solutions® Energy With Green Tea, Vitamin B12 & Guarana, BendEZ with Arnica, Glucosamine and MSM Gel, Chewable Peppermint Vitamin D, and Glucosamine and Chondroitin with MSM

Oh, right. Carter likes them too. Swiss- are you looking for a spokesmodel??
I started taking Glucosamine and few years ago when I began to run longer distances. Combined with the BendEZ Gel after long runs, my knees have been feeling much better in the last month than they have in a long time! I've also added in a ton of skipping to my routine and believe the combination of Swiss's capsules and topical gel not only will help me now, but in the long run. It's hard to think of our health long-term sometimes but let's face it- the majority of people reading this blog put their bodies through a LOT! Most of us take care of our bodies through exercise and nourish ourselves with nutrition. Supplements and vitamins are meant to help your body with things that we can't always get in our diets (and none of us are perfect!).

I love the chewable Vitamin D- Peppermint flavoured! It's like I'm eating a mint. Actually, a lot of their products are available as chewable- such as Vitamin C, Glucosamine, Multivitamins, Cranberry- to name a few! I love this!

I really like that the products come from natural sources and that Swiss's main goal is to promote longevity and create healthy active living within families and communities. As a Phys Ed teacher, I can't tell you how much their goals coincide with mine! They are a part of Breakfast for Learning- dedicated to the support of school nutrition programs within the province- ensuring students have healthy choices available to them within their school's vending machines, cafeterias, and to those in need.

Check out the video of the Flash Mob raising money for this worthy cause- using Hula Hoops in the middle of one of Toronto's busiest intersections!

They have generously donated a gift basket as a giveaway for one of my lucky blog readers!

  1. Already follow you on my google reader :)

  2. I would definitely like to try the Vitamin B12, I'm usually lacking in that so supplements are often my solution!

  3. Follow you! Obviously...you are my hero.

  4. Follow Swiss Natural on Twitter already too :)

  5. Just checked their site! There are so many I'd like to try but I think Glucosamine would be one of my top ones. After my knee injury last year, it was recommended to me and I still haven't tried it out! I have anxiety about my knee when I go on longer runs so maybe it would help :)

  6. One of my friends recommended glucosamine and I haven't tried it yet. I def want to...especially now that I'm marathon training again!

  7. Already follow you on my reader and on my twitter, obviously! :)

  8. This is such a fab giveaway! Whoever wins is one lucky duck!! I went onto their website and was bloody boggled by all the choice but I would have to say I would really love to try the solutions energy one... or one for your joints, seeing as i'm 84 and have a plastic hip! ;)

  12. I'd be looking forward to the Herbal Varicose Vein Tablet , let's just say the Doc gave me a prescription for ... compression socks...

  13. I follow you on GFC as Avrora Davidovna.

  14. I checked out the Swiss Natural website...
    There are numerous things that I would like to try! For sure glucosamine as my knees have been bothering me quite a bit lately (too many squats and lunges!). I'm interested in trying glucosamine hydrochloride black raspberry. Apparently THIS product helps you to avoid 'loose ligaments' (not to be confused with 'loose morals', though a pill that promises that would probably be well received too). I didn't see a product that promises to undo a Cadbury's chocolate button binge... (they came for me on Sunday night. Yep... the big bag.)

  15. Liked Swiss on Facebook :)
