#EvergreenPure Women's Multivitamins - Customized Energy Food Based Blend Just For Women

It's really important for me to take my supplements daily.  I have found a great multivitamin blended with whole food ingredients that is just for women.  It's the Women's Best Multivitamin from Evergreen Pure.

The Women's Best Multivitamin is a superior food based formula that gives women the essential vitamins, superfoods, minerals and herbs that we need to feel our best, everyday.  It's a unique multivitamin and mineral blend which has been customized to nourish, protect and support a women’s body and her daily health needs.

Here's what you will find with the Women's Best Multivitamin:

  • Calcium, Magnesium, and Vitamin D to support strong bones and breast health
  • Potent Vitamin B complex promotes brain health, stress management and energy (100% or more of your Daily Value)
  • Contains Folic Acid, one of those B vitamins, to support female and heart health (400mcg - 100% of your Daily Value)
  • Contains plant-sourced enzymes and probiotics to promote easy, gentle digestion and overall intestinal health
  • Supports women’s immune health with natural immunity boosters including Echinacea, Garlic, Goldenseal Root, and Spirulina
  • For Balanced Female Support, this supplement includes Wild Yam Isoflavones, Red Clover, Lutein, Lycopene, and Cranberry PE
  • An energy blend of green tea, pomegranate fruit, and other nutrients provide women with an all-natural energy boost without caffeine additives
  • Does not contain soy, yeast, milk, eggs, nuts, fish or shellfish 
  • All natural blend is free of sugar, lactose, wheat, artificial colors, flavors, dyes, waxes, preservatives or additives
  • Includes Vitamins A, C and E to promote skin, eye, immune health and help boost metabolism
  • Certified for purity and potency
  • Manufactured in an FDA registered facility that follows GMP guidelines
  • All Evergreen Pure bottles are BPA-free and recyclable 
I really do like this formula.  Even though the tablets are uncoated, they are easy to swallow.  After I take this supplement in the morning with my breakfast, I do feel more energized to get things done. 

This supplement does not contain iron.  In reality, not having iron does not bother me at all as I prefer to take ferrous gluconate as opposed to ferrous sulfate which is found in most multivitamin formulas. 

For vegans/vegetarians - don't worry about seeing that gelatin is in the ingredients list.  It is a vegetable based gelatin, and Evergreen Pure plans to updating their labels to be more specific with this.

I do like this women's formula a lot, and I highly recommend it.  You can find the Evergreen Pure Women's Best Multivitamin at Amazon.  It is manufactured right here in the United States in an FDA registered facility that follows GMP guidelines.  All Evergreen Pure bottles are BPA-free and recyclable.  Evergreen Pure is so confident that you will love their products that they offer a hassle-free 100% Lifetime Manufacturer Guarantee.  Evergreen Pure takes pride in their products, and take care of their customers.

Choosing Evergreen Pure means you’re helping change lives and help the planet.  Evergreen Pure will donate $1 from each purchase to support one of the dedicated non-profit organizations listed below. 
  • The Nature Conservancy’s ‘Plant a Billion’ Trees Project - plant a billion trees worldwide by 2025.

BOB Revolution Pro Single Stroller Review - Guest Post

A dominant name in the jogging stroller industry, BOB has outdone itself with the BOB RevolutionPro jogging stroller, proving once again why the name commands such respect among runners.  Simply put, the Revolution Pro is an upgrade to their existing BOB Revolution SE model.  Equipped with top of the line functionality and industry leading safety features, you can be confident knowing the BOB Revolution Pro Single Stroller with enhance your workouts and let you maneuver around town with ease.

Hand Activated Rear Drum Brake

One of the top features we review on this jogging stroller that is not included in any other model is the hand­ activated rear drum brake. The hand brake is located on the handlebars and connects directly to the rear tires. When engaged, it activates drum brakes on the tires. Any runner who has experience on steep hills can tell you this is instrumental in providing an added level of safety for you and your child. While the wrist strap included in this and many other models will keep you attached to your stroller should you start to lose control, it will not give you the ability to stop the stroller. The hand brake will allow you to physically “pump the brakes” as you go downhill to prevent the stroller from getting away from you.

The feedback for this feature alone has been entirely positive. Many customers have said this feature was the deciding factor when selected the BOB Revolution Pro over other BOB models.  When running with your child, their safety is our paramount concern and BOB has noted that with the inclusion of this feature.

Adjustable, Padded Handlebar

One complaint many customers have with other models of jogging strollers is that it is not “user friendly” for running of varying heights. That is not the case with the BOB Revolution Pro as they have provided a padded, multi­positional handlebar that can be used comfortably by parents of any height. The handlebar can be adjusted into 9 different positions, from 34” up to 45” above the ground. This means parents on both ends of the spectrum (shorter or taller than average) can feel like the stroller was designed for them specifically.  Jogging strollers are often purchased to be used by multiple members of a family as well as outside help sometimes. BOB definitely took that into consideration when it designed the handlebar that can suit all people comfortably.

Product Features

The BOB Revolution Pro is such a well designed jogging stroller that the list of fabulous features included is quite long! Here are the top features included with the jogging stroller

  • Hand activated rear drum brakes for increased safety
  • 9­ position adjustable handlebar with padding is ideal for taller (or shorter!) parents
  • Wrist strap for added security when in use
  • Lower parking break will lock the stroller in place
  • Front wheel can be locked for stability or set to swivel for increased maneuverability
  • State of the art suspension system
  • Enhanced child seat with extra padding, 5 point harness and the ability to recline
  • Canopy that can be extended to added protection
  • Polymer composite wheels with pneumatic tires
  • Two ­step folding process
  • Available in three color choices: Wilderness (green), Orange and Black
  • Can become a travel system with the use of BOB B­Safe Infant Car Seat and Car Seat
  • Adapter
  • Wide variety of additional accessories available for purchase

  • Weight: 28.2 lbs.
  • Capacity: up to 70 lbs. or 44 inches
  • Rear tires: 16” and Front tire: 12.5”
  • Frame material: High strength aluminum alloy

Customer Reviews for BOB’s Revolution Pro Jogging Stroller

As of the writing of this review, I was able to find 44 customer reviews of the BOB Revolution Pro Single jogging stroller. This stroller has an average feedback score of 4.8 / 5.0 with 89% of customers giving the stroller a 5.0 / 5.0 rating. Customers have said:

“If you're looking for the best jogging stroller or even just the best all around stroller on the market, this is it.”

“The stroller has a wonderfully smooth ride and takes bumps and goes up sidewalks very gracefully.”

“It is the sturdiest stroller we’ve owned (probably 7 total!) and so well made.”

“I absolutely love the BOB and enjoy it so much whether it be on runs, walks or strolls through the mall. I have used this in mountains and on rough terrain and it's just amazing.”

Overall, the feedback on this stroller has been overwhelming positive. A few customers have noted they wished BOB would include some of the accessories as standard with the stroller.  Instead, all accessories must be purchased separately. However, there are a variety of great accessories available for this stroller, including:

  • Car Seat Adapter
  • Weather Shield
  • Single Handlebar Console (a favorite among most parents!)
  • Child Snack Tray
  • Fitness Kit

While some parents may be surprised by the high price of the BOB Revolution Pro Jogging Stroller, once you realize just how much you are getting both in functionality and safety, it becomes clear that this is one of the best options on the market. Serious runners and casual joggers alike agree that the BOB Revolution Pro provides them with an exceptionally smooth ride and the peace of mind of knowing their child is safe during their run. The hand operated rear drum brake is a feature that cannot be overlooked since it provides such a strong level of safety not found on other models. When combined with its other features, including an enhanced child seat for optimal comfort and 9-­point adjustable handlebar, the BOB Revolution Pro wins out as the jogging stroller of choice.

#HolidayGiftGuide Xteme Canteen: The Most Innovative Canteen Ever

My husband is off every day working.  I like to make sure that he has enough liquids with him to keep him hydrated throughout the day.  When it's summer, he loves his ice water, but now that it is winter, and, yes, it does get cold here in the desert, he likes to bring hot tea with him to drink.  He needs a big container that will keep his beverages just the way he likes them any time of the year.  That's why one of his gifts this year is the Xtreme Canteen.

No more plastic for my husband!  Now he has the most innovative beverage container with the Xtreme Canteen.  This 32 ounce beverage container is made of 18/8 food grade stainless steel - inside and outside.  The only plastic you'll find with the Xtreme Canteen is the plastic washer in the lid to keep it from leaking.  This really is the most Xtremely environmentally conscious water bottle.

Xtreme Canteen designed this container correctly.  They advertise that it will keep cold drinks cold for up to 24 hours, and hot drinks hot for up to 12 hours.  I thoroughly tested the Extreme Canteen to see if it lives up to this claim.  It Does!  The other day, I filled this bottle with ice and water to see if it will keep the water icy cold - as it claims it will - for a full 24 hours.   I waited the full 24 hours and found that there was still ice with icy cold water at a full 24 hours.

The only plastic - the O-ring to keep the bottle from leaking.
I then tested the bottle to see if the claim of a hot beverage will stay hot for 12 hours.  At 9 am in the morning, I poured in boiling hot water - just what my husband would do for his tea.  When 9 pm rolled on in, I took off the top and found steamy hot water still within.  The Xtreme Canteen is just as good as it claims!

Don't worry about putting ice into this bottle.   It has a wide mouth opening that measures 2 1/8 inch in diameter.  I have a few of those huge ice cube containers.  This wide mouth opening just swallows those ice cubes up.

With the double wall insulation, you will never find any condensation developing on the outside of the Xtreme Canteen.  It does not get cold on the outside, nor, when there is a hot beverage within, it does not get hot on the outside.  I did notice that can feel cold and heat from the lid - the heat is never hot enough to burn.  The double wall insulation of this bottle really really works well.

Because this container is double walled insulated, there will never be any condensation on the outside.  The powder coated paint finish makes sure that the Xtreme Canteen will not slip out of your hands.  It is 100% recyclable and BPA free.  Having that stainless steel interior means that no flavors will leach into your beverages.  Xtreme Canteen designed their bottles in Honolulu (but they are made in China - wish it was the USA).

Xtreme Canteen has a vision to raise awareness about the over accumulation of plastic water bottles and address the problem by trying to eliminate the need for so much plastic being dumped into our landfills and oceans, daily. The Xtreme Canteen embodies their goal - not only is it an environmentally friendly product, but it also provides comfort when experiencing the xtreme conditions of every day life.

An Xtreme Canteen would make a great present to put under the Christmas tree or stuffed into a stocking!  The Xtreme Canteen 32 oz stainless steel vacuum insulated stainless steel bottle, just like I received, can be purchased at Amazon.  It's available in five cool colors: Royal Blue (mine); Blush Pink; Midnight Black; Shark Grey; and Tiffani Blue.  It is the most innovative drinking bottle I have yet to come across.
