Swanson Loot Review

6 Oct

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I have a review of the Swanson Vitamins website.

Swanson is small, family owned business, with a website filled with tons of great products, ranging from food items, supplements, vitamins, and anything in-between. You will find that their prices are pretty darn cheap, as is their shipping, at $4.99. Plus, if you sign up for emails, you’ll get more great deals and be able to keep up with their weekly specials..they have a lot of them!

Here’s my loot:

  • Nooch!: aka nutritional yeast flakes. I love the cheezey flavor of this, plus it has tons of vitamins and minerals. I use it as a topping for savory dishes, to make dressing/sauces, or to use anywhere I want a cheezey flavor.
  • Nutiva hempseed bar: This was really good! The ingredient list was clean and simple, using whole ingredients and just slightly sweetened with a touch of honey. I loved that is was chock full of nuts and seeds, including hempseeds, sunflower seeds, flaxseeds, and pumpkin seeds. Just look at it!

  • Acai lemonade drink sticks: I drink a lot of plain H20, but sometimes it’s nice to switch things up and add a little flavor. These are perfect for just that. They are stevia sweetened and fortified with a vitamin and mineral blend, so you get a lot of bang for your buck. I really enjoyed the flavor!
  • Yogi Relaxed Mind tea: I have been drinking this every night lately. It’s the perfect drink to cozy up with after dinner when I *sometimes* get to relax for a bit.
  • 5-HTP:  This is supposed to help with with mood and sleep. It promotes good levels of Serotonin, the “feel-good” chemical in your brain. I took it in the evening and would sleep REALLY well. It also had a nice mind-calming effect that was perfect for me to unwind at the end of the day. Unfortunately, I have stopped using it because I noticed some racing heart issues. I’m sad to not be using it anymore, but sometimes the bad outweighs the good.
  • Fem Flora probiotics : I am a big believer in probiotics as part of an overall health regimen. I decided to give Swanson’s brand a try after finding the awesome $6.99 price that it had. I have no complaints!

Overall, I am very happy with Swanson’s products and friendly customer service. Don’t be afraid to try something out from them…they have an awesome return policy as well!

***

Do you order supplements online? I have saved a lot of money from online shopping, not only for supplements, but anything in general. Nowadays, anything you can get in a store, you can get online…usually at a discount if you search for deals. One of my go-to websites for deals and coupons is Retail Me Not. Anyone else have any good ones??

That’s all for me today. Time to unplug the brain!
