green gift guide: naturally nova scotia {fruit antioxidant & vitamin C giveaway $34.45 – 4 winners}

Naturally Nova Scotia is a true holistic, herbal company whose products are completely manufactured on site from start to finish, in my home province of Nova Scotia! Naturally Nova Scotia’s primary goal is share with consumers certified organic products, whole foods and herbs all sourced from organic plant materials. They use state of the art technologies in order to preserve the most densly nourishing health products which means, no cheap machines and processes stripping your products of vital nutrition. They’ve actually mastered a process that removes 96% of water from fresh botanicals while leaving every important part of the botanical uncompromised! What exactly does that mean? High quality natural health products.

Vitamin D is known as the super vitamin for overall great health. Current guidelines call for women ages 19 to 50 to get 200 IU daily, but experts recommend an extra 2,000 IU a day if you have some sun exposure (about 20 minutes a day), or more if you have little or no sun exposure. In winter, most people need 5,000 IU daily.

I’ve been taking the Naturally Nova Scotia Vitamin D3 1000 IU daily, and I believe it had everything to do with Ethan and I not catching the horrible flu that my son and husband had a couple weeks back. Vitamin D3 is fantastic for your immune system, bones and teeth, fatigue and lack of stamina, and just basic maintenance of health.  I do feel like I have a little more pep in my step lately and it’s no wonder. Vitamin D3 supplementation is particularly important for those who live in Northern latitudes {that would be me!} during the winter months when sun exposure is significantly reduced.I don’t drink much milk {to get 5000 IU of vitamin D, I’d need to drink 50 cups!}, and I barely see the sun since we’re in heavy winter gear from October to April….my body was probably screaming for vitamin D!

I also received a package of Nausea Relief which is a certified organic all natural tablet made with 500mg of ginger. This brand new product from Naturally Nova Scotia is helpful with motion sickness by taking two tablets before departure {I’ll definitely be keeping this in my travel bag from now on!} and the exciting news – it’s safe to use while pregnant! Ingredients are simple and include: Organic Ginger root extract 500mg,  Organic Acacia Gum, Organic Maltodextrin and Organic Carnauba Wax.

Now back to cold & flu talk – another product you’ll want to get your hands on is Vitamin C. Naturally Nova Scotia’s Vitamin C Acerola is an adult’s and children’s fruity chewable tablet that contains 250 mg Vitamin C from organic Acerola berries and blended with blueberries, red raspberries, and cranberries. Something you need to know is that most Vitamin C supplements are synthetically made from genetically modified corn. Many harsh chemicals such as hexane and acetone are used in the process and while they are not in the finished product, workers are exposed to them and waste pollutants from them are given off into the environment. Naturally Nova Scotia’s Vitamin C derives its nutritional content entirely from organic fruit; Acerola Berries.

Combine that with the immune system supporting Fruit Antioxidant to keep your immune system in top notch condition over the sniffley winter months. The Fruit Antioxidant also helps children’s health, constipation, eye health: eye fatigue, night vision, microcirculation, macular degeneration, health maintenance, immune system support, and urinary tract infections.

I don’t know about you, but in our family, I’m the one who takes charge of our health. Moms are always the one’s scoring the shelves for healthy food, healthy supplements, making the appointments, etc., so mommies – here’s a perfect gift to give yourself and your loved ones. The whole idea behind taking supplements and vitamins is to keep healthy – we’re hardly doing that when we’re ingesting ones that have been sprayed with chemicals, include unhealthy fillers and “watered down” ingredients. With Naturally Nova Scotia, you truly are getting quality, GMO-free, certified organic health products that contain no artificial flavors, fillers or synthetics of any kind. Grab a couple packs of chewable vitamins and supplements to throw in your hubby’s sock this year  ;)
