Growing up my family owned and operated approximately 30 grocery stores and 10 pharmacies. The pharmacies were my father’s baby and ever since I can remember, the smell of vitamins have permeated my nose. Within his stores he was able to marry pharmaceuticals and natural remedies where they perfectly co-existed. When the company sold my father took his love for vitamins and opened Just Be Natural, a mail-order (now turned internet) company.

My first vivid memory of taking a multi-vitamin was Dinosaurs vitamins that tasted like what my mom called “Sweetarts.” We were not allowed candy unless at the movies, on a vacation, or for our birthdays. I truly believe this was my mother’s way of training my sister and I Pavlov-style to take our vitamins daily.

Years later, I do take my vitamins daily and I am asked often what I do to get my physique to look the way it does. I always tell everyone that it is a lifestyle choice and a perfect mixture of diet, exercise and vitamin supplements. The following are my CANNOT live without supplements:

Woman’s Multi-Vitamin: I’m a fan of our formula because it is made with an active lifestyle in mind, supplying you with the recommended daily allowance. This product contains Vitamins A, D, E and K, a complete serving of Vitamin B and Vitamin C. There are countless minerals such as Calcium, Iron, Iodine for thyroid function, Manganese for the formation of cartilage and lubrication of the joints, Magnesium and Zinc. What makes it special is the consideration of the woman’s reproductive system with essential herbs for symptoms of Menopause and PMS, to prevent and treat urinary tract and pelvic inflammation symptoms and feelings of nervousness.

Super Omega – 3: An essential fatty acid that your body needs in for the process of healthy fat product. Essential fatty acids improve cardiovascular health and function, immune system support, reduces inflammation, lowers cholesterol and triglyceride levels, as well as normal brain transmission and proper nervous system function. Recent research studies show that individuals with pain and inflammatory problems are deficient in Omega 3 fatty acids in over 60% of test subjects. With some Omega-3 products there hare complaints of a fishy aftertaste, but with this product we have molecularly distilled with an enteric capsule to eliminate the odor and aftertaste of fish oil.

Joint Support: I was a figure skater for 13 years that results in countless injuries, aches and pains. With the help of the Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfates, two powerful nutrients help support healthy joints and connective tissue I am to keep my game face on. The benefit is that this formula contains servings of Other ingredients include the anti-inflammatory actions of MSM, Boswellia and Quercetin along with the collagen building properties of Vitamin C, and Proline. Bromelain, Ginger and Turmeric have been included to help reduce the risk factors of arthritis, which is poignant in the over use of phones and computers now a days.

Cardio Support: JBN’s Cardio Health contains the fuel your heart needs like CO-Q-10, L-Carnitine and a vitamin blend to supply a long term functional energy pipeline. This formula also contains a wide variety of electrolytes, antioxidants, amino acids and herbs to help maintain your entire circulatory system and reduce risk factors of conditions like chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), elevated cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease, and blood-related disorders like hepatitis.

Get Slim Pack: There’s a lot more to maintaining a healthy weight than just exercise. You need to eat right too. One of the keys to a proper diet conducive to weight loss and fat burning is to make sure you consume the right kind of “good” calories (i.e. calories from foods that the body can easily and more completely digest and burn for energy instead of being stored as fat). This Pack includes: Whey Superior to provide the body with these low glycemic, highly digestible calories that the body can quickly and easily convert into energy instead of being stored as fat. CLA 1000 boosts the body’s ability to efficiently burn calories and existing fat stores as energy instead of allowing them to attach to tissues and be stored a body fat. JBN’s Ultra Cleanse System gently cleans and detoxifies your body to help proper and efficient digestion functionality to promote more weight loss potential

As you can see food and vitamins have not only been my families livelihood, but our way of life. I attribute much of my success in life because of the healthy habits I have acquired through growing up in a health conscious family. Until next time my friends, visit www.raylenebartolacci.com. To health and wellness, Salute.
