Health and wellness product reviews
Well, August is wrapping up so it’s time to share the products I’ve been trying out this month. We’re on a health and wellness theme right now, because both things in this month’s reviews are dietary supplements.
Here’s what I love about LoveBug’s probiotic. First of all, the packaging is very Eco. The supplement comes in an attractive, dark blue glass bottle which could totally be re-purposed. The stuffing inside the bottle (you know, the stuff to keep it from jostling in transit) is organic cotton. I commend LoveBug for making probiotics hip through design and branding!
The tablets contain 8 probiotic strains designed especially for digestive health. When choosing a probiotic, I always look for one like LoveBug’s that is time-released so your digestive tract will get more of the goodies without stomach acid eroding them. Read more about the fascinating science of probiotics here.
In addition to a sample bottle of Here’s the Skinny probiotics, LoveBug also sent me a heart shaped ice pack. So cute!
Natural Goal L-Arginine
L-Arginine is an amino acid that’s made by the body and found in protein-rich foods. It helps with many things, commonly blood pressure and circulation issues. I added it into my regimen because it’s supposed to help supply blood flow to your muscles during workouts and I wanted an extra boost for my Irish dance training. Sometimes it’s also prescribed for wound care and healing after surgery. For the purposes of this review, Natural Goal sent me a bottle to test. The generously-sized bottle contains 100 capsules. The capsules are standard size and deliver 1,000 mg of L-Arginine. I feel pretty good after trying it, but I need to keep taking it longer to see if I have more results.
