More Than Alive

For the last 4 or so years I have been using Super Mom vitamins and other products made by a company called Beeyoutiful. They have amazing natural health and wellness products available. I also buy dried herbs to make my own capsules from a company called Bulk Herb Store. Then there is No Greater Joy, who have parenting and family resources.

Ordering from each of these companies individually can add up to a lot of shipping charges. Then I discovered More Than Alive. This company carries all of the products from these 3 resources along with several others all in one website. Best of all they offer free shipping for all orders of $99 or more. Sometimes I have a big enough order by myself to get free shipping and when I don't, i call someone who also buys these products and we combine our orders. Just click the link on the side bar to see what they have or the link at the bottom.  Very easy to do!

Here's some of the products I (we) use and their descriptions:

Super Mom/Super Dad/Super Kids
Beeyoutiful’s SuperMom multi-vitamin is the supplement that made the company so well known. When you take the recommended 2 tablets or 4 capsules each day, you take in a powerhouse of energy to keep you well during the stresses of teen growth spurts, pregnancy, lactation, mothering, and aging.
Many of the vitamins and minerals exceed daily requirements. All of the folic acid you need is there, making SuperMom a great vitamin to take all the time. That way, if you’re blessed with a pregnancy, you’ll be well stoked up on this critical aid for avoiding possible birth defect from the start. SuperMom also reduces or eliminates swelling and nausea during pregnancy. And it excels at helping your body make rich, healthy breast milk.
Vitamins A and D—which Weston Price noted are crucial for delivering healthy offspring—are present in full force. The all-important B-vitamins, which support the nervous system, are well represented as are abundant minerals to cover for the depleted soils in which most of our fruits and vegetables are grown. Lycopene, from real tomatoes, provides antioxidant protection from free radicals.
SuperMom builds oxygen-rich blood to keep you energized by supplying iron from amino acid chelate, the easiest form of iron for the body to absorb. Additional blood enrichment comes from chlorophyll—present as a stand-alone ingredient and also as part of superfoods like spirulina and chlorella, as well as barley grass and alfalfa juice.

Bone Ami
The liquid bottle is 16 fl. oz. / the tablet bottle is 250 tablets of Calcium and Magnesium supplemented with Boron and Vitamin D.
NEW Formula reduces separation! Guar gum has been added and the manufacturing process altered. We really love how it turned out and hope you do too!
Bone Ami - friend of my bones!
"The arthritis in my back injuries faded away within two days of taking this great tasting liquid supplement. I found that standing up straight was actually comfortable, and many of my elderly friends who have tried Bone Ami have said the same."
"Pregnancy especially takes it's toll on a woman's bones, and I highly recommend taking Bone Ami along with SuperMom as a prenatal." ~ Rebekah Anast
Our modern diets are lacking in natural sources of calcium, magnesium, and boron. Prevention is the best medicine, and no matter how young or old you are, a bone supplement can ensure a strong healthy frame. There are a myriad of calcium tablets available on the market today, but more often than not, our systems cannot absorb calcium alone and in tablet form. Bone Ami covers all the bases of bone health and comes in a great tasting liquid form that our bodies can easily access.

Spirulina is an exceptionally potent nutrient substance that has shown strong activity in many areas. It is the source of one of the most easily digestible forms of protein; it is 85 percent protein, compared with 20 percent in beef. It contains all the essential amino acids and most of the nonessential ones. In addition, it is extremely high in vitamins and minerals.
Spirulina has been found to be hepatoprotective and antihepatotoxic in several in vivo studies, protecting the liver against CCl4 – induced hepatoxicity. Spirulina also contains phycocyanin, a blue-pigment biliprotein that has been shown in scientific studies to inhibit formation of cancer cell colonies.
Micro-algae, which is highly nutritious and an excellent source of protein, chlorophyll, vitamins and minerals and amino acids. It has 26 times the calcium of milk, contains phosphorus, B12, RNA and DNA, and easily digested. It is a safe food with no side effects. It would be good for survival purposes as it is easy to store. Has sometimes been called “Manna of the future.” It has been tested in Japan and Europe and found to benefit people who suffer from many ailments including: anemia, cataracts, diabetes, gastrointestinal disorders, glaucoma, hepatitis, physical imbalances, aids weight loss.
*I take this to help give me more energy. I make my own capsules and take 4 a day in addition to the SuperMom vits. I also give them to my hubbie. I add a little cayene pepper to the top of each capsule for blood circulation.*

SOS for PMS- Tea
"Everyone knows the phrase “that time of the month.” It’s a “time” no woman looks forward to, or at least I’ve never met a woman who did. For many, it involves some kind of pain or discomfort such as bloating, depression, headaches, weight gain, cravings, etc. For a small percentage it’s not “that big of a deal,” but nonetheless women tolerate it only because there is no way to avoid it.
Through study, I found particular herbs to use for each of the symptoms I experience during my cycle. After months of experimenting, I arrived at what a friend dubbed SOS for PMS. All my reading led me to conclude that this recipe would provide key nutrients a woman’s body tends to be low on before and during her bleeding. Therefore, drinking this tea should prevent some of the common symptoms of PMS by supplying those needed nutrients.
After only one month of use, I found it to be amazingly effective. Not only did my bleeding lessen, but there was no bloating, no headaches, and no cramps. Wow! Eager to share my findings, I sent my tea blend to a number of friends and family members. All have given it raving reviews. It accomplishes its intended purpose, and tastes great in the process. I am amazed at how something so simple could make that dreaded time much more bearable.
And so began a monthly ritual of drinking a few cups a day of this blend the week before and the week of my cycle. I add one tablespoon of the blend for every cup of boiling water. Then, turn off heat, and steep covered 15 to 20 minutes.
I’ve also found other uses for it, such as during pregnancy, for postpartum healing, and even to increase and enrich milk production." Joy Robles

*This product has been unavailable for a while so I bought the individual herbs to make my own tea mixture. I drink one large mug full twice a day the week before and during and have lessened and shorten my cycle!!! I also take Bone Ami twice a day because a calcium/magnesium deficiency can cause PMS symptoms too.*
