This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Rainbow Light.
All opinions are 100% mine.
As you know I’m super picky about vitamins and supplements. I believe they are 100% important to supplement our distance runner lifestyles, as we know that food no longer gives us the same amount of nutrients that it did in the past.
The truth is that I say no to most supplement companies who reach out because I want to ensure I’m only getting and sharing things that will truly support our bodies..
I was very intrigued by Rainbow Light Women’s One for a whole variety of reasons beyond the daily vitamins. Our bodies NEED to be supported for optimal recovery (checkout my chart on vitamins athletes need).
This multivitamin is taking things to the next level by saving me time and money on other supplements. Here’s what else it includes:
- Probiotic (the most recommended supplement of nutritionists)
- Digestive Enzymes (an absolutely daily thing for me already)
- Organic Superfood blend of chlorella, spirulina, beet, broccoli, pomegranate and so much more
- Non-GMO verified (whooop)
- Potent B complex (everything you need for a great energy)
- Vitamin D (because a shocking number of us are low!)
- Calcium (bone health, especially needed for us dairy free folks)
- Easy to digest!
- Gluten free
Not only that, but this vitamin gives back!!
As an added bonus, this vitamin can give you a second feel good boost knowing that a portion of the proceeds from Rainbow Light Women’s One and Prenatal One will be donated to Vitamin Angels, their partner of 25 years.
Purchase your Rainbow Light today — seriously why wait! It’s now available at Sam’s Club, which we know makes it even easier to buy more at once so that you don’t need to remember to restock every month!
What is Vitamin Angels?
This charity is committed to resolving malnutrition, which is the #1 cause of childhood deaths. They’re doing this with partners like Rainbow Light who help to provide vitamins to expectant mothers and children under age 5. In fact, they’ve been working together for over 25 years now!!
For those of us who run, we may often take our ability to receive nutrients from food or access to a great multivitamin for granted. But that’s not the case for many people around the world and Vitamin Angels is determined to help change that.
It’s amazing to see a brand with that kind of long term commitment. Rainbow Light celebrating that big anniversary with some special drop offs of vitamins from April to June, 2019, in these areas:
- Los Angeles, CA + surrounding area
- West Florida
- Dallas/Houston area
- Chicago + surrounding area
- North East: New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania
They have over 1,100 local non-profits globally to help reach those truly in need of their services. While you might already know about the importance of a Prenatal Vitamin like the one Rainbow light provides, what do you know about Vitamin A??
Vitamin A Deficiency
I admit this is one vitamin that I simply took for granted, but not Rainbow Light! They know how important it is and that’s why it’s part of their ongoing partnership with Vitamin Angels all year long.
In children, a lack of vitamin A can have serious consequences including:
- illnesses including diarrhea and measles
- stunted growth
- even death because of their weakened immune systems
Vitamin A is NOT produced by the body, so without access to leafy greens, sweet potatoes, fish or liver, children quickly become deficient in this vital nutrient. And of course it starts not just after the child is born, but my helping the mother improve her nutrition or vitamin status before birth.
I think this quote says it all so beautifully:
“One of the most compelling investments is to get nutrients to the world’s undernourished. The benefits from doing so – in terms of increased health, schooling, and productivity – are tremendous.”
–Vernon Smith, Nobel laureate economist
Knowing that something is good for our health and choosing to do it, aren’t always the same thing. But as runners, we’ve taken the first step by showing up for ourselves everyday with movement. Now it’s important to make sure we’re also choosing to remember our daily vitamin, not taking our health for granted.
Because we’re busy, no better option than an all-in-one which takes care of MANY supplements that we’d need to take anyways! Find out more about where to purchase your Rainbow Light today
Could there be any better reason to embrace a Vitamin?!
