#Stressed? Need Energy?

If I could put my finger on the two things I hear most often from people in my personal life, it's almost always 1) Sure could use some more energy! and 2) A little less stress would be nice!  Sound familiar?  The problem is, short of pulling all your hair out and running away, there really ain't a heck of a lot you can do.  Or is there?

Since my diagnosis of Pernicious Anemia, I'm pretty hip into the whole vitamin thing.  Who knew that one little missing vitamin could cause such damage to one's body.  Best Price Nutrition approached us again about doing some more reviews and I didn't even hesitate.  This time we were able to try out Perfect Calm and Perfect Energy supplements.  The names sound sorta heavenly; like take me away to the land of Perfect Calm and Perfect Energy.... nice cool breeze.... cold drinks.... maybe some sand and dancing to steel drums in the background... ok, ok but it does sound lovely.

Perfect Calm is "A complete multi [vitamin], provides a combination of 25 whole-food vitamins and minerals formulated to promote optimal health while targeting the nutrients your body needs most during times of stress, like whole-food complexed Vitamins B and C."*  We definitely felt that the Perfect Calm made a difference in irritability levels and helped with the ability to sleep better.  The main anti-stress herb in the complex is Holy Basil  "which has been shown in scientific studies to modulate cortisol and ease a worried mind."*

Perfect Calm is available at Best Price Nutrition in:
Perfect Calm 144ct  A great value!

The Perfect Energy formula "is the ideal organic whole-food multi-vitamin herbal and nutrient formula for those seeking enhanced energy, performance and endurance."* Perfect Energy contains Chromium, something you will often see in nutritional drinks, which helps promote energy production.  After trying Perfect Energy, we felt that it is a very good multi-vitamin for overall health, energy and focus.

Perfect Energy is available at Best Price Nutrition in:

So cut a little of the chaos out of your life and try these formulas - they're on sale now!!
