Being a mom is always challenging, never-ending, and oft-times exhausting. It is for these very reasons I must take vitamins! I have two rambunctious boys, ages 2 and 4, who are always, always on the go and, of course, never sit still until naptime or bedtime. I need the energy to keep up with them and the healthy immune system to keep the sickness away from myself and my family!

Before having children, I didn’t take vitamins and suffered the consequences. When the fall season came around, I knew exactly what was in store for me: sickness, sickness, and more sickness. If I came into contact with someone who was sick, there was no doubt I would soon have it.
Having very active children has given me all the inspiration I need to be a better, healthier Mama! When I was pregnant with my second son, I took my daily prenatal vitamins and, just as with my first, I noticed how healthy I felt, how radiant my skin was, and how much energy I had. When he was born, I continued taking prenatal vitamins to produce healthy breastmilk for him and provide for him all the nutrients and vitamins needed as a preemie. This turned out to be pivotal for him gaining weight and being very, very healthy.

I’ve continued taking prenatal vitamins and also take an echinacea supplement for an extra immune system boost. I want to be the best Mama I can be and vitamins help me achieve more than I ever could without them. Being able to provide for my children is a wonderful feeling, but being able to keep up with them, stay active and participate in fun activities with them is even more fulfilling. The children grow up so quickly and I want to experience as much as possible with them and create wonderful memories. Thanks to taking vitamins, I not only feel better and have a healthier immune system, but I feel like I’m a much better Mama.
