Why Izumio and Super Lutein are Perfect for Kids

izumiokids

As parents, we definitely want only the best for our kids, and in my 10 years’ experience as a parent, I’ve realised how challenging it is to be a parent.  How we need to trust our instincts sometimes, how we need to make that call as to whether to do this or that, and how we have to be on our toes at all times, regardless of whether we are tired, sleepy, busy or sick.  Our kids will always come first and their well-being is always right there at the top.

With three kids now, it sometimes does get more challenging because the way we handle a tween (my eldest will be a teenager really really soon) is different from the way we handle a toddler.  Health and nutrition-wise though, I try my best to instill an awareness of eating right and healthily so that my kids are well-informed of their choices.  Of course, as kids, they have the occasional “junk food” and “candy that’s far too sweet for my liking”, but I’m so grateful that they are now on Izumio and Super Lutein natural health supplements, which I am 150% confident will bring their bodies back into equilibrium despite the snacking that they do occasionally.

Every parent ought to know that these supplements, Izumio and Super Lutein, exist because if they did and knew what these supplements are capable of, they would definitely want them for their kids (and for themselves).

Izumio hydrogenated water and Super Lutein carotenoid capsules are what I like to call “The Super Duo That Packs a Healthy Punch”!  In a nutshell, this is how these wonderful supplements work:

In a healthy individual, our body is in perfect equilibrium, hence we are termed healthy with no sickness or disease.  However, once we are exposed to free radicals, the state of our body becomes imbalanced.  Free radical activity is a chain process which keeps on replicating and causes our cells to mutate and become diseased.

While we are able to control the onset of certain free radicals in our body, we are not able to do so most of the time.  Factors like food intake and exercise are controllable, however certain factors like environmental exposure, stress and exposure of infection from third parties are beyond our control.

This is where a healthy and strong body plays an important role.  If your body is strong and healthy, it can ward off free radicals and infection easy.  But if your body is weak, it will succumb to free radical invasion and as a result, illnesses and diseases will follow.  Most people seek medical intervention in the form of drugs and medicine but these only treat the symptoms of the illness.  Once you recover, your body doesn’t get stronger.  Instead, it heals but contains drugs and medications and toxic material in it.

If your body is strong enough to fight off the infection WITHOUT drugs and medication, then it will only get stronger and stronger with time.  A strong, fit and healthy body can only be attained through healthy living and healthy eating.

Super Lutein and Izumio helps to ensure our bodies stay healthy and strong, naturally…without the need for drugs and medication.  Even more so with kids, who are in the process of building their immunities, Super Lutein and Izumio will definitely give them a headstart towards a healthier future.  Because Super Lutein and Izumio have successfully treated major diseases like cancer, heart attack and stroke, taking these supplements whilst they are kids will prevent the onset of these diseases as adults too.  Health investment, much?

Over the past year since we started on these supplements, I’ve stopped all other supplements we were previously on, because why would I want to waste money on other supplements which contain fillers and binders and other stuff which I cannot even pronounce, which could endanger my kids’ kidneys? Izumio and Super Lutein are pure and natural supplements and they are all we will ever need.  My kids consume 1-2 capsules Super Lutein daily (more if they are unwell or feeling under the weather), and 1 pack Izumio every other day.

Here’s why I say Super Lutein and Izumio are perfect for Kids:

A Boost to the Immunity

On so many instances, I have seen with my own eyes, my kids healing from illness like fever, coughs and cold just by upping their dosage on Izumio and Super Lutein.  Sometimes if I feel they are exposed to someone else who might be contagious, I increase their dosage too, and they don’t catch on.  Sometimes they catch the bug, but they heal super quickly.  I hardly ever give them antibiotics, and I believe they have even healed from bacterial infections without antibiotics… it takes longer but I know that their bodies are getting stronger in the process.

It’s not just my kids, mind you… many of my friends who have taken that leap of faith have reported astounding results with kids’ immunities too!

A friend whose daughter had been suffering from persistent chronic cough for at least 7-8 months, gave her 1 pack of Izumio on that night she bought this product from me and her daughter’s cough healed overnight!

Another friend gave her daughter just 1 capsule Super Lutein and half a pack of Izumio water and her flu and cough recovered with needing medication from the doctor.

For the Super Lutein capsules, kids either swallow them whole or you can snip off the end with a pair of sharp food scissors, and squeeze out its contents into the kids’ mouths.  You could also soak the capsule in a little bit of drinking water and let it soften for about 10 minutes.  This makes the swallowing easier.  Recently my daughter suffered the tail-end of a phlegmy cough.  For coughs and sore throats, I highly recommend squeezing the contents of Super Lutein straight into the throat or chewing or biting it.  However, my girl does not like the taste of the carotenoids and fish oil, so I masked it with some Manuka honey for her.  After 2-3 doses, the cough went away.

The Ultimate in Eyecare Supplements

If kids are exposed to radiation via television, computers, iPads, iPhones etc, they need exceptional eye protection.  Super Lutein contains two of the most potent carotenoids that work wonderfully to maintain healthy eyes: Lutein and Zeaxanthin.  These are sourced from the best natural sources in the world and wouldn’t you agree that your eyes and your kids’ eyes deserve the best?

For kids with short-sightedness (Myopia) or astigmatism or even any congenital eye diseases, Izumio and Super Lutein are perfect.  There are already cases of kids having to change their glasses to reduce the power, and I pray that in time, these kids do not have to wear glasses altogether.  Izumio, which contains hydrogen, has the capability of reversing genetic abnormality and targets cells at mitochondrial level.  No other element in the world can do that.

For occasional eye complaints like sore eyes, red eyes, tired eyes and itchy eyes, I simply drop a few drops of Izumio into their eyes (like eye drops), and have them close their eyes for about 10 minutes. The effect of Izumio is almost instantaneous!  Red eyes become less irritated, and tired eyes seem more lively.

For Scrapes, Nicks and Cuts

Getting hurt is part and parcel of childhood and growing up and is inevitable.  I like to soak some sterilised cotton gauze in some Izumio and let it sit on the wound or cut for about 2-3 minutes.  It helps the wound heal much faster, without irritation.

Recently, my daughter had her ears pierced and one side of the ear developed some redness a few days after.  I simply dried her ears after showering and placed cotton gauze with Izumio for 2-3 minutes.  The redness subsided and went away within 1-2 days.  No crusty lesions formed (as is often for pierced earlobes) and she is none the happier!

See, I use Izumio for everything!  My kids know how to ask for it when they want it too!

For the Picky Eater

Kids who don’t eat enough nutritious food every day fall sick more easily because their immune system is compromised.  Super Lutein is a supplement that will provide 4 servings of fruits, 5 servings of vegetables in all the colors of the rainbow, with just 3 capsules daily.  I can also be assured of the quality of the nutrients it provides, unlike the food we buy outside.  How sure are we that organic is truly organic?  Of course, eating whole foods is definitely better but it’s reassuring to know that when the whole foods fall short of supplementing my kids with the food they need every day, Super Lutein steps in effortlessly.

For Skin Problems and Skin Issues

I’ve noticed that kids nowadays have more and more problems with their skin.  It could be due to the environment or to the food/junk they put in their bodies.  Regardless, Izumio and Super Lutein are designed to fix that imbalance.

This is a testament I hold near and dear to myself, because my own daughter who has had eczema since birth is well on the way to full recovery now.  I am eternally grateful to Super Lutein and Izumio for giving her that lease of life, and I am truly touched when friends and relatives come up to me and comment on how her skin has improved so much.

Not just for eczema, but for rashes, hives and occasional itching, Izumio truly relieves and heals.  Don’t just take my word for it, you gotta try it.

To Counter Dehydration

No matter how much my kids drink, I still think they don’t drink enough.  So I get extra paranoid when they are out having their activities.  Soccer, swimming …all takes a toll on their water levels.  When I know they are going to be exposed to external factors, especially in the hot sun, I give them 1 pack Izumio to hydrate and rejuvenate them.  This gives them more energy too, and reduces the dehydration…because if you know kids…they WILL forget to drink their water when they have fun.

A Relaxing Laid Back Day – The Giddy Tigress Way

On public holidays, we try to steer clear of crowded places like the malls, cinemas, tourist attractions and the like.  However, we love to spend time together as a family but at the same time we need to find ways to incorporate some personal pampering on our own too.  How do you make your kids part of your “me-time”?

Last Monday was such a day, so let me tell you how we did it…

In the morning, the kids had their swimming coaching session at the pool, so we took the opportunity to play around the slides in the pool area too, after the coaching session.  It was some good exercise and fun, because Daddy got to take the littlest one up and down the slides while Mommy enjoyed the “baking in the sun”….. NOT.  It was definitely scorching hot by noon, so we packed up and left by then.  Thank goodness we remembered to stay cool and hydrated with Izumio hydrogen water… felt so much better after downing a pack or two.

relax1

After a quick shower for all of us at home, we drove out for a quick and easy lunch at a nearby coffee shop.  Then Daddy took care of all the kids while I left for a 1-hour massage session.

relax2

This has been our arrangement every 3-4 months on the average.  Since we do not have extra help with the kids, we take turns going for our massages.  Would be awesome to get a massage together with your spouse (like a couples massage, y’know..) but since we cannot afford to do that yet…this will have to do.  The masseuse commented that my shoulder muscles felt very tense and knotted, so she concentrated on that part.  Getting a massage now and then really helps relieve the stress and everyone could certainly do with one every now and then.  Good stuff (except I am rather ticklish…but that’s my own problem…haha).

After my massage I drove back and then it was hubby’s turn for his massage.

That day, I decided to book a pedicure with a home manicurist/pedicurist.  It was a first time for me, and since my daughter had been asking for a session for a few weeks now, I decided to give it a go.  After all, I could still have all my kids with me at home whilst I had the pedicure!  Sure beats doing it in a mall with me having to worry about kids running around everywhere!

The session was very thorough, and both Mommy and daughter are very happy with the pedicure.  We will definitely book her again in future.

How did you spend your recent holidays?

Diary of a Meal-Planner-Wannabe (Weeks of Jan 11 – 15 & Jan 18 – 22)

I’m doing a two-in-one post for the meal-planning post this week.  I realize I have been lagging again, so please forgive me… Well, things on the homefront seem all right.  It looks like I have the laundry under control now too, but I still need to find more time to do more spring cleaning and decluttering.  Ooooh…and curtains need to be laundered before the Chinese New Year too!

Thursday

Lunch: Lotus root soup with steamed rice.

Dinner: Lotus root soup from lunch, ginger sauce chicken with mushrooms, baby bok choy stir fried with oyster mushrooms, steamed rice.

Decluttering Project: Kids’ Craft Table

I have several “dumping grounds” in my home where I am ashamed to say that I conveniently dump things and make it messy.  Then I forget that I dumped the stuff there and the mess just keeps growing.  Hence I’m making myself tackle these “dumping grounds” as often as I can…hopefully one location per week…declutter and get it organised.

It would be easier if everything can be tossed out but it’s harder than it looks.  Definitely.

Anyway, I decluttered the kids’ craft table last week.  Yes, my kids have a craft table.  How lucky huh…

This is actually a repurposed baby crib.  We bought this crib when we were expecting our first child about 10 years ago, but when we came back from the States with baby no.3, we shipped the crib we bought from US, and so this first crib was not being used.  Hubby (ever the “throwing away” type) suggested we throw the crib away, but I saw this excellent idea on the net where the crib was repurposed into a craft table and decided to give it a go.  That was about a year ago, and the craft table has been well used by the kids.

Look at how messy it is…

crafttable1

I started by taking every single thing off the table.  Important key to start decluttering: Always start on a clean slate.

I then wiped down the whole table and started to sort and corral everything into groups.  Groups of brushes and painting equipment, groups of markers, highlighters, colored pens, tubes of watercolor, poster colors, papers, crayons etc.

I also made use of these fabulous containers purchased recently from Ikea.  Very helpful and neat too!

crafttable2

The entire project was finished in about half an hour, right before the baby woke up.  And I even had time for a quick shower!

Loving these Ikea containers that store almost anything!  If you have kids in your home, get some of these, seriously!  They come with lids and are super useful!

crafttable3

We use them for crayons, color pencils, paints, and I have a couple on my dresser for makeup stuff like lipsticks, blushers and so on too!  More on that later…

But anyhoo…here’s what the craft table looks like now.. I’m loving how neat it is, and how inviting it is for the kids to get imaginative!  I’m thinking of adding a whiteboard somewhere too…. :)

And of course, here is the before and after of this decluttering project:

Now, what shall I declutter next….???

Diary of a Meal-Planner-Wannabe (Week of Jan 4 – 8)

I know, I know…I’ve read all about meal-planning and the wonders of how it helps to set the pace for the week, how it helps mothers stay organised and all.  However, I have never managed to get it to work for me.  A good friend of mine was seeking for meal plans and grocery lists just last week and yet another one proclaimed that she already had her meal plan sorted out for January!

Where does that leave me?

Well, I decided to try out a simple meal plan for the first week of school for the year.  It was going to be just a trial run and I wanted to see how well I could keep to it.  I was going to allow myself to be flexible but yet try to get meals prepared in an organised manner, and hopefully by putting it down for the whole word to see, it would spur me on to stick to the plan.

And oh yeah…I managed to get some fruits for the whole week too, one of them were these succulent and juicy champagne grapes….they were teeny tiny but so good!!  And seedless!!!

Monday

Lunch: Mcdonald’s takeout. Yeah I know…kill me already.  But seriously, it was because the kids had their swimming coaching session  in the morning and it was the most convenient lunch on our way home.

Dinner: Orange chicken (recipe), Dragon beard vegetables stir-fried with roast pork served with steamed rice. Yay me! :)

Tuesday

Lunch: Chicken and pumpkin porridge; leftovers orange chicken from dinner last night.

Dinner: Soy sauce pork belly a.k.a. my kids’ favorite, apple and pork ribs soup, leftover orange chicken with steamed rice

Wednesday

Lunch: Chicken and pumpkin porridge leftovers; leftover soy sauce pork belly

Dinner: ABC soup (tomatoes, onions, carrots, potatoes), leftover soy sauce pork belly.  I have been cooking double the amount of soy sauce pork belly for the past 2 weeks, because it really does taste better on the second day.  Plus it saves me the time and effort to cook one dish on the second day.  Score!!

Thursday

Lunch: Chicken and pumpkin porridge; chicken pie (bought from store cos chicken porridge tak laku :P)

Dinner: Chicken cacciatore reinvented, served with spaghetti.

cacciatore

Friday

Lunch: Leftovers from chicken cacciatore with spaghetti.

Dinner: Almost starved to death while waiting for my man to come home.  Will probably cook dinner on Friday next week.  For the record, we had Tex-Mex food that day.

And there you have it.  Not too bad for a meal-planner-wannabe, wouldn’t you say so?
