I’ve recently fallen in love with a vitamin supplier and I just have to share – Swanson Vitamins. Now hear this: I bought vitamins and supplements from Swanson Vitamins long BEFORE I was approached to host a giveaway and review. Remember back in January when I told you guys about my digestion/gut woes? I’m still working on the problem, but it has improved VASTLY! A great part of that healing is due to my morning cocktail of Swanson’s Super Green Max Plus and apple cider vinegar.
I mix 1 tablespoon of the greens with 2 teaspoons of Bragg’s ACV in lukewarm water. Drink it immediately upon rising.
I can’t even remember how I found the greens, but now I have at least 2 canisters on hand at all times. I tweeted my love for this product and pretty soon after, I had made a contact at the company (and scored a jar of their Organic Coconut Oil for every Blend swag bag!! Full size!) I was given a $50 credit for Swansonvitamins.com and told to “shop till I dropped.” <-they didn’t really say that.
I had a little too much fun perusing this website. Swanson seriously sells EVERYTHING (except Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter – every other flavor except this coveted one. WHY?!) Vitamins, supplements, healthy treats and snacks, organic shampoo, coffee, loofahs. They sell anything and everything that one might need to lead a healthy life. Honestly I was a bit overwhelmed (and spent a solid two hours going through the products). Swanson always has a sale of some sort and their “house labeled” products are always a good deal!
Here’s what I got:
A closer look:
Like I shared earlier, I drink 2 tbsp. of Bragg’s every day, so this was a must! Plus, it’s pretty expensive in my small town – very reasonable online.
I couldn’t find my favorite green powder (discontinued?? please no), so I got this green powder to try instead. Fingers crossed that it works well!
In love with Avalon Organics! Swanson had all of their Avalon products reduced at 20% off! Clara’s skin is so sensitive that we have to be careful what to bathe her in.
I currently have no anti-aging regimen. Trying to fix that.
I’ve tried the Honey Mustard flavor of Lundberg’s Rice Chips (and love them), so when I saw this new-to-me flavor, I just had to scoop it up.
I knew I wanted to get a specialty flour to experiment in the kitchen– it was either this quinoa flour or coconut flour. I’ll order coconut next.
Thank you, Swanson, for letting me shop!

Probiotic & Vitamin D!
Just FYI, it’s SUPER easy to make your own quinoa flour! It’s recommended to toast it in the oven first, but all you have to do is pop the raw stuff in the blender and let it do its THANG! Coconut flour on the other hand…YOU TOTALLY NEED! Lol
Following and tweeted! :)
For the last couple of month (since my knee started acting up), I’ve been taking a glucosamine/chondroiton supplement…I figure since they found quite a bit of arthritis in my joint during my surgery, it couldn’t hurt to start taking something for my joints! Gah, it makes me feel so old to say that! Lol
I take Tumeric (720g) on a daily basis for it’s anti-inflammatory as well as antibacterial/antiviral properties. Other supplements I take are Spirulina, Goji Berry, Royal Jelly, Bee Propolis and Cinnamon Gymnema Mulberry Complex.

I love Swanson! They are located right down the street from my Grandma’s house! They were a HUGE sponsor of the Fargo Marathon when I ran the half two years ago. I got sooo many awesome free samples! Swanson is such a generous company. I always take a multi-vitamin, but I just ordered magnesium to take in place of calcium. I’ve heard good things…hope I like it! :)

My doctor tells me I have to be careful with my calcium levels, so I try to take a calcium supplement. I also just started taking multivitamins every day because I haven’t been feeling as energized lately!
I take some sort of multi vitamin (almost) daily. Aslong it’s chewable and doesn’t taste nasty, I’m down.
I regularly take Omega 3, vitamin C, and calcium.
I take a probiotic and Fish Oil supplement everyday!
After being sick far too many times this winter, I finally started taking a probiotic daily. Between that, a multivitamin and my allergy medicine, I feel like a 90 year old that needs one of those pill cases for each day!
I’ve actually been taking the Klean probiotic that you recommended! Also, gummy pre-natals, you know, to be prepared (not that there’s anything to be prepared for at the moment.)
I try to take a multivitamin daily. I’m going to have to try your morning “cocktail,” because it looks better than similar recipes I’ve seen!:)
I (if I can remember…) drink an ACV cocktail- 2 tbs ACV, lots o’ H20, 1 stevia packet, and a couple shakes of cinnamon. So tasty and it helps keep my skin from being so oily. Whoop!
I usually take biotin for my hair and nails. I have terrible skin and it really does help :)
I take a vitamin D Rx supplement once a week because my vitamin D levels are extremely low. Since taking them, I have noticed that I have less joint pain, fatigue, and moodiness. So, it’s safe to say it’s working for me! :)
we love alll things BRAGGS in this house!
I take daily vitamins, coQ10 and a B complex..but I need to start taking probiotics again regularly!
