Frequently Asked Questions
How Do I Know Which Multivitamin Is Right For Me?
With so many different options, it can be difficult to choose a Multivitamin that is right for you. Multivitamins come in many forms: liquids, capsules, tablets, and even powders. The form of Multivitamin should be the first thing you consider, it won’t do any good if you don’t take it. For those who have a hard time swallowing large pills, there are options. If Multivitamins tend to upset your stomach perhaps one that is food-based would be a better choice. Garden of Life, MegaFood, New Chapter, and Source of Life are all Non-GMO certified food-based choices that can be taken on an empty stomach. If you are over the age of 40 there are specific
Multivitamins which are formulated to suit your daily needs. Finally, if you don’t want a gender specific Multivitamin because you want to share with someone else in your household, we have options for that category too.
Does S&S Carry Protein Powders?
Yes! S&S has a wide variety of protein powders to suit your every need. Some of our protein options include: Whey, Pea, Rice, Hemp, Egg White, Soy, as well as a blend of Sprouted Grains. If you want a yummy flavor like vanilla, chocolate, berry, or even chai, we’ve got it. Otherwise if you prefer a plain unsweetened option that you can add to anything, we have that too. Protein powders can be added to your favorite milk product, juice, water, and even your baked goods. There are trial sizes from several different companies, so you can find what works for you. We offer over 17 different brands to choose from, so there is something for everyone.
Why Should I Take Probiotics?
Lately, Probiotics have really been in the spotlight. Since the human body contains trillions of microbes, it makes sense that bacteria are such a hot topic. Many of us have used our fair share of antibiotics, which not only work to fight illness and infection but also drastically reduce populations of beneficial bacteria inside the body. An unhealthy diet and environmental toxins can also contribute to a lower number of beneficial bacteria. Unfortunately the average American diet is lacking in fermented foods which naturally help restore beneficial bacteria. This is where Probiotic supplements that everyone is talking about come into play.
Probiotics can be beneficial in supporting immune function, aiding in digestion, producing and releasing digestive enzymes, promoting healthy skin, aiding stress, and countless other bodily functions. There is a lot of fascinating research on the subject of Probiotics that can allow us to decide if a Probiotic supplement would be a good addition to our daily routine.
