Zellie's - For Healthy Teeth!

Hey Everyone!

Sorry this is late.  The first day I was going to post the internet went down because of storms, and the second day I was going to post I had it almost completely ready to post, and it wouldn't upload my pictures, and wouldn't go back to my post, so I lost my whole post!  Not very fun trying to re-write a post!

I have to tell you that both my mom and myself both love chewing gum, but we don't buy it very often just because we go through it so fast!  I try and ration mine out, but my mom can go through a pack in one sitting.  I know that gum is supposed to be "good" for you, but probably not to that extent!  Today, I want to tell you about...

Zellie's

Yep, you read that right... for HEALTHY teeth!  We were really excited about the chance to try Zellie's, and the whole family gathered 'round when the box arrived.


Before we get started I want to take a minute to tell you about Zellie's "Promise of Pure Goodness"!  "Zellie’s has always been committed to offering the purest xylitol-based gums, mints and candies available anywhere. Our supply chain is closely managed every step of the way and we are proud to produce our products here in the United States. In 2014, we took our commitment one step further by eliminating titanium dioxide, an ingredient no longer necessary in our production process. And as we always have done and unlike most other gums available, we produce our products without adding glycerin."

Wow!  I LOVE the fact they they don't have a gazillion and one ingredients in their products.  There are way too many things out there that have too many ingredients, while Zellie's sticks to only a few.  I really appreciate that!  One of my other favorite things about Zellie's is the many health benefits of xylitol.  It is a healthier for you than sugar/other sweeteners (I learned that is has about 40% less calories on their website!), and it will HELP (yes, I said help!) strengthen teeth, prevent tooth decay, and heal cavities early on.  


Did you know that "Studies show 6 to 10 grams of xylitol daily, in frequent small doses, helps prevent damage from dental plaque, dry mouth and acidity."

It's great that just by having a couple pieces of gum or mints a day, you can get in your recommended servings of xylitol.  I received... 2 Zellie's 100ct. Gum Jars (1 Peppermint, 1 Cinnamon), 1 Zellie's 18ct. Blister Pack Gum (Peppermint), 1 Zellie's 250ct. Mint Jar (Cool Fruit), 2 Zellie's 65ct. Mints Tins (Spearmint and Peppermint), and 2 Zellie's 70ct. Polar Bear Jars (1 Cherry, and 1 Tropical fruit.  Sounds great, huh?!?  


Although they were all tasty of favorites were the Peppermint flavored Gum (and mints), the Cool Fruit Mints (we think they taste like those Smarties candies!), and the Cherry flavored Polar Bears.  We have a little friend visiting us right now that was really surprised at how good everything tasted!  My mom took possession of the peppermint mints, and I literally had to HIDE my gum at my desk so that she didn't take it.  I'd keep changing hiding spots, and she'd keep finding it so I'd hide it somewhere else.  Really interesting!  She really like the kick that the Cinnamon gum had.  Very flavorful!  I am very happy that the family can enjoy great tasting gum/mints/etc. and do it without a guilty conscience.  


So, these are definitely worth purchasing for the taste and the benefits.  You can head on over to the Zellie's website to purchase your own appetizing goodness right now!  You can also Like them on Facebook and Follow them on Twitter

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this. Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes).
