As a blogger with a bit of a natural/organic slant, I often find myself with a challenge. See, this blog is a small business, and there are a ton of companies out there that I just can’t work with. No soda pop reviews, no recipes with ingredients that contain food dyes, you know how it goes. It’s disheartening sometimes, but it makes it just that much better when I find an opportunity to write about what really drives me. My passion. My reason for blogging. Natural products from a brand that is committed to empowering their customers to lead healthier lives.
When I was asked to spend a month as a #NOWWellness Ambassador for NOW Foods and tell you about their mission, I couldn’t reply fast enough. I was familiar with the name, but I had never used their natural, organic and non-GMO products, so this will be venture into new territory for me. A venture that, I hope, will help you decide if they might be right for you.
In case you’re wondering if my kids are into the idea, here’s a quick unboxing video of our NOW Foods stash.
They’re all in. And they’re very discerning little reviewers, so I’m sure they’ll offer some great insight.
But until then, here’s what I already know about NOW Foods
Here’s the part that hooked me: “In 1968, NOW Foods was founded under the belief that good health was not a luxury available only to the wealthy.” That’s a direct quote from their website, and it indicates a great foundation. The NOW® mission is: To provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. To me, the keyword there is “value.” Great products only matter if you can get your hands on them, so the value proposition is gold for budget-conscious folks like me. Knowing that NOW manufactures and distributes more than 1,400 dietary supplements, GMO-free natural foods, sports nutrition and personal care products, has a six-decade-long legacy, and is still family-owned? Well, those things tell me that this is a company where my dollars will be well-spent.

Why I’m Proud to be an Ambassador
I’ve noticed that the ambassadors on the Now Foods website are pretty hardcore (but I mean that in the best way.) They’re triathletes, marathon runners, fitness experts. I’m not going to sugarcoat the fact that although I consider myself an advocate for health, I do get a little intimidated sometimes. I’m a busy mom with two little ones and a growing business, so triathlons aren’t happening around here anytime soon. (But half marathons are!)
Why I’m proud to be a #NOWWellness Ambassador
Despite the chaos, good health and quality natural products are a priority for us every day, especially as I deal with my own health goals and try to teach my children the importance of being aware of what they put into (and on) their bodies. That’s why I’m super thankful for this opportunity. I want to approach these products from a real mom’s perspective and tell you the truth about how they work for me. Because better health happens one decision, one action at a time – and I really think NOW Foods can help make those actions easier and more attainable.
So, in case you missed anything in the video above (distracted by my son’s fly moves, maybe?) here’s a rundown of everything NOW Foods sent.
