Natural Vitality Calm Magnesium

Use: constipation, leg cramps, sleep, anxiety, swelling reduction, treatment of preterm uterine irritability. 

Magnesium and calcium are fundamental nutrients that need to be in balance with each other in order for you to fully experience good health. Their importance on a cellular level is critical. Calcium and magnesium are like opposite sides of a coin. Calcium excites nerves, while magnesium calms them down. Calcium makes muscles contract. Magnesium is necessary for muscles to relax. Calcium is needed for blood clotting, but magnesium keeps the blood flowing freely.

Calcium & Magnesium: A Matter of Balance

Floradix®

Use: blood building to give energy, strength and safety in child birth.

In my ideal world, each women would have access to this for a short time during each trimester. Early on for nausea as it is packed with B vitamins, at 20 weeks to aid in blood building, and then again at term to help prepare for recovery. 

Floradix® is the best-selling natural liquid iron supplement in North America. It helps fight back against iron deficiency by promoting the formation of healthy red blood cells.* Plus, this safe, low dose, liquid iron supplement is formulated for easy absorption and assimilation and is gentle on the digestive tract due to its use of ferrous gluconate, a highly soluble iron compound.

Floradix® also contains carefully selected plants and ingredients, chosen for their effectiveness and digestibility, including carrots and spinach, among others, and the juices of pears, red grapes, and other nutrient-rich fruits.

Fem-Dophilus®

Use: treatment of bacterial vaginosis, yeast and UTI  by stabilizing vaginal flora. Reduction in GBS colonization in pregnancy. 

Fem-Dophilus® contains two patented and clinically documented probiotic strains, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, GR-1® and Lactobacil/us reuteri, RC-14®, discovered and developed by Dr. Gregor Reid and Dr. Andrew Bruce at Urex Biotech.

 

"Of the 110 participants, 99 completed the study (49 in the probiotic group and 50 in the placebo group). The GBS colonization results changed from positive to negative in 21 women in the probiotic group (42.9%) and in nine women in the placebo group (18.0%) during this period (Chi-square p = 0.007)."

Überlube

I have not been one to connect to a single product, but this lubrication really impressed me from day one. I meet the rep at the ACNM conference in 2019. As I wandered by their table I found my hand reached out for a what I assumed was a sample packet, but ended up being a pump of lubrication, on my hand, in the middle of a convention center, in full day light, in front of everyone! Blush

I have had access to lube in my life, both professional and personal products. They all leave an oily, moist or sticky feel that just yells "wipe me off when you are done with me." This product is different.

It's simple ingredients mean it can be used for a variety of things, but I mainly recommend it for vaginal dryness during the postpartum healing phase, vaginal dryness dur sex and for comfort and maintenance during the post menopausal years. Their website also lists skin and hair benefits related to holding in moisture or preventing skin breakdown during athletic events.
