Healthy living with Nature Made® And Walmart!

This post was sponsored by Nature Made® as a part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central.

Healthy living. It's something we all strive to achieve! I have definitely been putting a pep in my step when it comes to my health. I've been pescaterian since middle school, but I'm trying new recipes and making healthy eating fun! With my recently acquired fitness tracker and my walks to work or school or exploring, I am quite literally stepping it up. With both of these, I find myself feeling more energized... Even when work and class and life-in-general leaves me emotionally drained.

Even though I've been trying my best, up until now I've been severely lacking in one specific area: vitamins, supplements, and/or probiotics. So, another trip to Walmart was in order! I dipped my toe into that broad pool by picking up these VitaMelts Fast Dissolve vitamins from Nature Made®. They seemed like the best option for me, a vitamin newbie as an adult, because they're the #1 Pharmacist Recommended brand for many key dietary supplement categories*. Plus, there were so many little yellow bottles to pick from when I was in the aisle! Nature Made® has such a variety to help support nutritional gaps with your health goals in mind ranging from Digestive Support, Heart Health & Function, Energy Metabolism, Women’s Health and much more!† To help me even further in my fitness journey, the Nature Made® Healthy Habit Builder program to help with motivation and tips regarding my specific goals!

As per usual, Walmart has low prices so it's easy to stock up on different vitamins, supplements, and probiotics any time without needing to wait for a rollback sale (though one might be going on, anyways!).

Like I said, I feel like I'm dipping my toe into the Nature Made by buying their vitamins. Both their vitamins and supplements are an easy, convenient way to help your body get the nutritional support it needs every day, whether it be to support bone health, immune health or energy metabolism (helping convert food into energy).† Maybe I just started here because the word "vitamin" has been so very integrated into my life from an early age? Whatever weird sociological impulse led me to this point, though, I'm really pleased with my vita melts! They're quick, they taste delicious (like actual fruit, instead of artificial weirdness), and I definitely give myself a pat on the back for working on my fitness (reference? Anyone?) daily.

Supplements feel like a midway point between vitamins and the active probiotics, so I'll probably give those a try next! Then, what Nature Made is pretty much known for: Nature Made® Advanced Dual Action Probiotic has been clinically studied and provides dual support to both your small and large intestine for comprehensive coverage to help support digestive balance and healthy gut flora.† Probiotics are available at Walmart Supercenters! Talking or thinking about probiotics is always a little mind-blowing because they're active- like, whaaaaat? Amazing. And kind of intimidating. But I'm willing and excited to work my way up to it!

Super exciting! Nature Made is teaming up with Walmart in order to give you the chance to win one of 60 (6-0!) Walmart giftcards for $50! You can enter to win here.

Do you live a healthy lifestyle? Do you take any vitamins, supplements, or probiotics in order to do so?
