Living Well with GNC -- Review & Giveaway Ends 1/12/12


Like most of you, I have a few New Year's Resolutions to make (and hopefully not break).

One of them is to take better care of myself and my family.

GNC is a truly great place to start. From Vitamins and Supplements to Energy and Endurance to Diets -- GNC has it all for your every need.

Although I'm beyond the baby-making days, I am still keenly interested in providing my daughters (Michelle and Liz) with positive information to help them make good nutritional choices.

Michelle was born with a condition known as Spina Bifida, a Neural Tube defect. Although she has experienced many operations and many painful days as a result -- her spirit never falters. She walks... she runs... she drives... and she's been blessed by G-d.

Spina Bifida is caused by a lack of Folic Acid during pregnancy. It can be devasting to some children. Some, like Michelle, are able to function normally.

January is National Birth Defects Prevention Month.


GNC has an amazing line of products to aid pregnant or planning-to-be-pregnant women.


GNC Women's Prenatal Program (30 Day Supply)

Complete multivitamin and nutritional support:

*Prenatal Formula - 60 Caplets
*Calcium 600 - 30 Caplets
*DHA 200 - 30 Solfgels
*1000 mcg folic acid, essential for mom-to-be and her developing baby
*200 mg DHA, vital for a baby's brain and eye development
*1200 mg bone-strengthening calcium
*400 IU of vitamin D-3 to enhance calcium absorption

GNC Prenatal Program is a daily multivitamin program that provides nutritional support for both mother and baby before, during and after delivery. Pregnancy is a special time in a woman’s life and an important time to be mindful not only of your individual nutritional needs, but the nutritional needs of your baby as well. Maternal nutrition before and during pregnancy affects both your well=being and your infant’s growth. As your baby develops through the early phases of life, your nutritional needs will also increase. After delivery, you will need an adequate diet rich in essential nutrients such as calcium and folic acid to support nursing and replace depleted nutrient stores. This delicately blended multivitamin offers supplemental nutrition support for both you and your baby.


I am confidant that both of our girls will be taking nutritional supplements and vitamins all during their child-bearing years.

For myself, I no longer need pre-natal vitamins. Nope -- I need ENERGY!!!

My go-to energy booster is Click Protein Powder. I seriously can't function without it.


Clickco Click® Espresso Protein Drink™ give me everything I need to get up and get moving.
It contains:
*15 Grams of Lasting Protein
*23 Vitamins and Minerals
*Low in Sugar and Calories

The perfect fit, the all-in-one energy drink with a rich, creamy delicious taste. A healthier alternative to sugary coffee and energy drinks. Perfect to start your day, as a mid afternoon snack or before or aftera workout.
Now you can CLICK On to a healthier for you, long lasting energy lift.
Make every moment CLICK!

Their website is not working properly and I keep getting this error message: "ERROR: CookieManager.get URIError: malformed URI sequence" so I couldn't see all they have to offer. BUT I do see that they carry 100% Pure and Avalon Organics brands and I know I would use my GC to get stuff from those two brands!
