Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Nature Made as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

My first impression of how to have a healthy lifestyle came from my Grandfather. As a very young child, I remember him doing his daily exercises in the dining room. My Grandfather, a military man, knew the importance of a balanced lifestyle. Even in his elderly years, he rode his bike daily. He also took his daily vitamins!

As I grew older I too had an active lifestyle. Then when I hit middle age, I realized I needed more to stay healthy.

I take Nature Made Gummies Every Day!

I draw my inspiration to live a balanced, healthy lifestyle from my Grandfather, and from nature. Hiking, nature walks and spending time outdoors are activities I love. Enjoying time with my pup Lyla, we go on walks together often.

I love fruits and veggies and eat them daily. I also enjoy blending and creating new smoothie recipes.

Nature gives us so many wonderful ways to enjoy life and stay healthy. We receive Vitamin D from the sun. The soil gives us the ability to garden and to grow plenty of veggies. We get fruit bearing trees if you are lucky enough to live in a place where they grow. Nature provides us beautiful places to explore, ride bikes, and work out.

Still, with a midlife metabolism, that may not be enough.

With all the wonders nature provides us for good health I still choose to one-up what is already provided. I take Nature Made®  vitamins for that extra step.

Nature Made Daily One-Up To Enhance and Balance My Life

We need different types of vitamins at different stages of life.

As a mid-life woman, I have learned that it is the little choices we make each day that paves the way to a healthy lifestyle.

Nature Made vitamins play a critical role in helping me maintain balance, and be able to stay active!  I choose Nature Made because they are active in the pursuit of health and wellness. They are also the #1 Pharmacist recommended brand! You can find them easily at your local Dillions or Kroger locaion.

My personal opinion – the gummies taste amazing and I actually look forward to taking them each day! I kind of feel like I am cheating because they are such a treat to eat!

I do not claim to be the perfect person when it comes to eating healthy. I try, like most, I do my best. Exercise is certainly an area I could work on. I know I need to do more when it comes to getting my heart rate up. What I can do, and do daily is take my vitamins. That is how I one-up my lifestyle for balance and health.

    It is so important to take daily vitamins. Nature made is a brand I trust.

  2. March 15, 2017 / 1:23 pm

    I take these daily. I love the flavor and the fact they are gummies.

    • March 15, 2017 / 4:55 pm

      I love the flavor as well Kathy. I always feel like I am cheating and eating candy!

    Great article. You have fond memories of your grandpa. Thanks for sharing! I have purchased Nature Made Vitamins and Supplements for decades. It is a great brand!

  4. March 15, 2017 / 3:12 pm

    Muliti-vitamins have come along way. I remember when they use to taste really bad! Now you can get them in gummies! So awesome!

    • March 15, 2017 / 4:53 pm

      They really have. I remember those days too – they had chewable but they were so chalky! These are great I always feel like I am eating candy!

  5. March 15, 2017 / 5:31 pm

    I am not big on taking vitamins because I am so forgetful but love the idea of gummy vitamins. Love that they’re making them for adults now!

    I take these same gummy vitamins and I love them. They are easy on my stomach and taste great, which makes it much easier to remember to take them.

    • March 15, 2017 / 10:13 pm

      They really are easy on the stomach! LOL they do taste good! I feel guilty sometimes because I enjoy them as a treat!

    Honestly, I love that Nature Made has gummies instead of the usual large pill that other brands offer. It’s easier to take and it’s quite tasty as well! It makes being healthy even more fun.

    • March 16, 2017 / 12:23 am

      They ARE tasty! We can actually ENJOY taking our vitamins! Makes it easier to remember to take them too!

  8. March 15, 2017 / 11:19 pm

    I think all of us, no matter how healthy we eat, can benefit from daily vitamins. I think that becomes even more important as we begin to age. Nature Made is a great brand, trusted and recommended. The fact that they offer gummies is a great bonus too!

      So true Jessica! It’s like using a moisturizer on our skin. We KNOW we should but really do not see it as important until we get older. Then we wished we had done it since we were young! Taking vitamins is such a great habit to get into. I am glad my mother gave them to me as a kid! I really do feel better when I am taking them regularly and when I stop for whatever reason, I notice a difference!
      The gummies are so good it’s sinful lol

    I eat healthy foods all the time, but I know it is still not enough for a recommended dose of nutrients for a day. That is why I still have my food supplement that can fill in the missing vitamins and minerals that I get from my food.

      Exactly. I do try to eat healthy but honestly I do not think I COULD eat the required amounts of fruits and veggies each day. I would be way too stuffed lol.

    This is really important to support our health, I prefer this brand. And this is the easiest to take!

  11. March 16, 2017 / 7:03 am

    Nature Made has been in my family for years! We’ve always trusted the brand for quality products. I’m pleased to see they offer gummies as well.

    • March 16, 2017 / 11:55 am

      Same here Fatima! My mother swears by them too. I remember this brand from WAY back lol. The gummies are tasty and make taking them fun!

  13. March 16, 2017 / 10:11 am

    I’ve been meaning to take vitamins but I always forget. I need to make it part of my morning routine.

    • March 16, 2017 / 11:52 am

      I used to be the same way but since starting the gummies, I never forget – they are so good!

    I take these daily and I have never felt better!! These are amazing.

  15. March 16, 2017 / 12:14 pm

    Nature made os a great brand. I take the multi vitamin and vitamin d of theirs.

    • March 16, 2017 / 3:38 pm

      I need to get some Vitamin D next time I am at the store. Thanks for the reminder!

    • March 16, 2017 / 3:38 pm

      Please do! I am taking their Vitamin C and the Mulit. I love the extra energy I have.

    • March 16, 2017 / 11:16 pm

      Nature Made has been around so long – absolutely a brand I trust. I am glad you take vitamins. So many people do not realize how important they are.

  16. March 17, 2017 / 3:17 am

    I love these most because I can get my kids to take them! Nothing better than making it easier on moms to give the kids!

  17. March 17, 2017 / 9:36 am

    I do take vitamins daily, but they’re not gummies. 🙂 I would love to try the Nature Made gummies. I’ll grab me a jar next time I’m at the grocery store.

    • March 17, 2017 / 12:28 pm

      Nice! The last time I was at the store they were buy one get one! Love those deals!

  18. March 17, 2017 / 11:33 am

    That’s so awesome that you have those memories of your Grandfather! I am very close to mine and I have so many good memories of my own *warm fuzzies*

    PS – that muscle pic of you is sooo cute Joely!

      Awee thank you Erin. It’s a little cheesy but I could not help myself. I am so glad you are so close to your Grandfather. Grandparents are the best!

  19. March 17, 2017 / 12:51 pm

    I do currently take some vitamins but like you I do forget sometimes. This gummy multi-vit sounds like a cool idea for adults. Who doesn’t want a treat? I know I do

  20. March 17, 2017 / 1:14 pm

    At one point I had added daily multi-vitamins to my routine, but quickly fell of the bandwagon. I need to get back on and start being more active, too. I like the idea of gummy vitamins. They’re so much easier than pills.

  24. March 20, 2017 / 12:18 pm

    I have similar childhood memories, but they were my dad, not my grandfather! I use other nature made vits, but I’ll pick these up on my next run! Thank you!

    • March 20, 2017 / 3:19 pm

    • March 20, 2017 / 6:19 pm

      Oh me too! I love both the multi and the Vitamin C ones … they are literally like candy (tasting of course).

  27. March 20, 2017 / 7:06 pm

    Gummy multi-vitamins — those sound a lot better than the pills I take! I think it’s so important to take small daily steps to make sure our bodies are nourished. Thanks for sharing!

    • March 20, 2017 / 7:33 pm

      Happy to share and thank you for commenting. I agree it’s in the small things and this is so easy to do every day to help ourselves be healthier.
