Rebooting my Wellness Routine with Nature Made

Written by

This post is sponsored by Nature Made® as a part of an Ambassador Program for Influence Central.

Spinning back the clock a couple of years, many longtime readers might recall my "2014 Fitness Challenge" here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine, and my quest to get fit. I changed my diet, joined a gym, and began a routine that did me well. I was posting regular updates on the site, and even into 2016 I posted "gym selfies," but as some noticed, those became less frequent. Making a lifestyle change is a big deal, and you have to do it when it's right for you. Unfortunately, my plans were derailed a few times, first with gallbladder surgery in January of 2015 that knocked me out of routine, and again with a knee and hip issue. I'd dropped around 40 pounds, and now it's all been gained back. The time has come to get back into my routine, and a big part of that is overall "wellness" - not just the weight loss and strength training (which I'm getting back into again), but the things I'd not considered the last time around. One of those things is digestive health, and while picking up my supplements at my local Walmart Supercenter, I recently added Nature Made® Advanced Dual Action Probiotic into the mix. Yep, digestive health!

Digestive Probiotics

Nature Made® is the #1 Pharmacist Recommended brand for many key dietary supplement categories*, and the wide selection of vitamins, minerals and supplements available at Walmart's every day low prices makes it easy to stock-up on the right things to help me along in the journey to reaching my health goals. Paired with their new "Healthy Habit Builder," they've even provided additional tools to lend a hand.

Nature Made® vitamins and supplements: An easy, convenient way to help your body get the nutritional support it needs every day, whether it be to support bone health, immune health or energy metabolism (helping convert food into energy).† I'm taking a few of these right now, and will continue to do so as I work to achieve the perfect mind-body balance.
