Cold and Flu
Cold and Flu! Has it Hit Your House Yet?
(Originally Cold and Flu was posted on Chat with Sandy 12/30/10. I am bringing it back because I like these products. I am no longer a GT VIP blogger and I’m not getting compensated in any way for this post. But I do believe in these products and use them myself and wanted to let you know)
Cold & Flu has hit mine… several times. We have had colds, bronchitis, walking pneumonia, strep throat, sinus infection in the last 3 months between the 10 of us.
Not fun is it? Yuck!!
What have I had? I will tell you that I thought 2 different times that I was getting sick. But it was like 1 day of a little sore throat and then it was gone. Last night was the first night that I wondered about a cold. My nose was stuffy, but so far today it seems fine.
You know.. I hate even writing this! Because as soon as I start bragging that I haven’t gotten sick… I’m going to get whammied!!
I was going to put this video at the end of this post….but I want you to see this. Dr. Lindsay Duncan was on the View and did a great job explaining some of these… After the video… check out the rest of our adventure with these juices. Consider this a commercial break! lol
What have I been doing that the rest of my family hasn’t been? I’ve been drinking Omega Orange Juice from Genesis Today. Do I know that is why I haven’t been sick and they have been? Nope, I don’t. Could it be? Sure…
My boys got home from the first 3 weeks of basic, both with congestion and the beginnings of colds and coughs. I started them drinking the Omega Orange and also the Resveratrol, Acai juices along with taking the new Vitamin C and Acai chews that I received from them.
Neither of them have gotten worse like you would expect with a cold. They are both doing great. The first several days that took Nyquil at night and Dayquil during the day. But then that was it. About 3 days and they are better. Again… can I say it is from the Genesis Today products that they are better? No… I can’t.
We had several different juices from Genesis Today to try. The favorite of my older boys (we were out of Omega Orange) was the Pomegrante & Berries with Resveratrol. We also tried the Cranberry Goji and the new Veggie Blast.
The Vitamin C chew has 200% of vitamin C in it, along with some other great stuff. It tastes good, reminds me of a starburst piece of candy.
The Acai chew is the same size. The consistency is slightly different. It is just a little firmer. The taste is very much the same as the Acai juice. It is a little tart, and I like to have my coffee to drink after I eat it. It doesn’t taste bad, but my mouth is actually watering as I type this. lol
My thoughts on the new Cranberry Goji juice – taste wise, I don’t care for it. But… remember!!! The Genesis Today products are about the health benefits for you and what they can do… Let me tell you… the pure form of these things do not taste good. You can get the concentrated form and take 1 oz a day.. and it is terrible! But they have made these juices in a diluted 8 oz serving form that I get at Walmart. So those of us who want the health benefits but want a better taste.
The Veggie blast tastes like cold tomato soup. I personally have never liked V-8 because of the peppery taste. The Veggie Blast did not have the peppery taste when I was drinking it. Now – what I did notice was an “after burn” in my throat – not really my tongue. Kind of strange really – but a good way to get your veggies in!
I have to start eating healthy and this year is going to be kicked off right. Genesis Today is going to be part of my healthy lifestyle for 2011 and beyond!
Disclosure: I am on the Genesis Today VIP Superfood blogger team. I did receive samples of the Veggie juice, Goji juice and chews to try. I was allowed to use the video if I wanted to (which I did). The pictures are my own and opinions are my own.
