Boosting My Kids' Health with Izumio and Super Lutein

If you've been following my posts from my personal blog, you would have read about my encounter with Izumio and Super Lutein. Well, after I finished the first bottle of Super Lutein consisting of 100 capsules and 1 box of Izumio (30 packs of 200ml hydrogenated water), I was almost healed from my hand numbness syndrome and saw no reason to continue with this super pricey yet effective supplements. It took me ONLY 2 weeks JUST to spend such a large sum in order to solve my 3 months long suffering. So why did I choose to continue being a faithful consumer of these products?

Our Izumio Baby :)
1. All-in-ONE Supplement for All Age Group
The reason is S-I-M-P-L-E. This is a good combination of an all-1-in supplement that cater for all of my family members' needs regardless of age. I do not need to source for individual needs, nor different capsules for different parts of my body. Previously I need a high omega dose of DHA & EPA, calcium, magnesium and zinc supplements for my bones, hair and nails, Vitamin B Complex or Neurobion for my nerves, Vitamin C to boost my immune system and not to mention a separate kids-friendly version for my children. Then there's VCO and Manuka honey for my baby as I refrain from giving any supplements to her, since they contain lots of fillers, binders, etc. For my baby, I go for natural raw organic produce to ensure she got the safest and toxic-free, whole nutrients, not processed food. When all this add up, the amount spent would definitely not be less than this 1-stop health investment per se.


Recommended dosage chart

As shown in the table above, Super Lutein's dosage recommendation covers all age groups. Whereas for Izumio, it is suitable for everyone from the young to the elderly as it's just hydrogenated water that retains minerals (please refer here for details). 


So when Super Lutein came into the picture, it has solved my problem because it contains 6 of the most important carotenoids and 5 essential nutrients as shown below. But most importantly, even though it's in capsule form, it does NOT contain any fillers, binders or preservatives whatsoever. 



2. No Fillers, Binders and Preservatives
Why am I so particular about fillers & binders? These are listed at the bottom of your supplement panel on the back of the supplement bottle as inactive ingredients. They are used to inexpensively bind, fill, and lubricate capsules or tablets to expedite processing. Some of the most commonly used additives have been shown to negatively impact your health, by hindering the body's absorption of certain nutrients. I am most particular to those labels that indicate "with permitted thickener", or "food conditioner and preservatives as permitted, etc.."  

3. Convenient Health Insurance
Super Lutein is 100 percent natural. 3 capsules of Super Lutein contains the equivalent nutritional value of 4 servings of fruits, 5 servings of vegetables and 6 colors of natural extracts from fruits and vegetables. All this while, I've been ensuring my kids' diet contains a variety of colors and balanced combination from each food group. 


However, I couldn't deny that I couldn't possibly cover each group every day, the most is within a week (if I cook every single day). That's still okay to me, as I accept my limitation in being a busy mom of three. But how about those times that the kids refuse a particular type of food, no matter how much I coax them? Or the time when I didn't cook, or when they are sick? How do I ensure that they not only get the adequate nutrients during times of good health, but in times of sickness, they would definitely need an added boost for faster recovery. These supplements come in so handy and convenient, especially when we ever decided to eat out, or if they requested to indulge in their favourite junk food, for I wouldn't be so lost or guilty as I know that they will be somehow covered by this 'health insurance'. Yes, even though junk food is a No-No to me, I couldn't stop my kids from occasional craving for them due to peer influence, and other external factors. Thanks to Izumio, this hydrogen water is swift and effective in flushing out all those toxins and removing free radicals from the body.

4. Great Eye Supplement
As some of you have known, I've been battling with my kids' short-sightedness for quite sometime. I've invested in an eye-exerciser, myopia control lenses, and eye supplements, but their power keep on increasing. Ever since hubby's eyesights improved after consuming this supplement in less than a month, it has given us hope that we could somehow maintain, if not reduce our kids' eyesight. Till that day arrive, we would be diligently consuming this, for it contains lutein and zeaxanthin which have proven to either help or slow the progression of macular degeneration (AMD). Taking this together with Izumio, we hope to see the results faster, and I do feel my tired eyes are refreshed instantly every time I dropped some of these water into my eyes.

5. Immune System Booster
So with all these goodness, we have used these supplements as our first line defence against the viruses out there. When SY complained of sore throat, I'll give her a pack of izumio to wash down her throat, and the effects were almost immediate. She was much better instantly. When Yao fell down and hurt her finger, I dabbed it with Izumio and Super Lutein on the wound for faster healing and scar prevention. When I went for my company badminton practice, I was expecting lots of muscle aches for I have never exercised in months but to my relieve, I experienced little to no aches or pains. But the best of all, when the people around me were sick, I was not as badly affected as compared to previously. I felt more energetic during the day, and thus able to accomplish more as well.  

A Price to Pay...
Unfortunately, I can't deny that every good thing has something 'bad' in it. For these supplements, it's none other than the price. How I wish they are sold much cheaper so that everyone can afford them. But considering the facts that they have strict quality control, and come from the highest grade of raw material, it's understandable. We pay a fortune for designer bags and watches too. So all good things come with a price. Super lutein is approximately RM4 per capsule, while Izumio is ~RM15 per pack. We have not consistently stay at a fixed dosage due to cost concern. But in general, a healthy adult goes with 3 capsules of Super Lutein and 1 pack of Izumio a day, while my two elder girls take 2 capsules with half a pack of Izumio a day. Yao would get a few sips of  Izumio from us each time, and a capsule of Super Lutein on alternate days. That's what we do to minimize our cost, but we do realise that for faster results, we should probably maintain our dosage daily.

They say that health is wealth. It's especially true when we can save so much on hospital bills and medical fees trying to treat our loved ones back to health. Not to mention the agony that we have to go thru, the pain of seeing our loved ones suffer, and the toll that it took on our times and eventually our health. That's why, I'm willing to spend a little more just to avoid all these, as the saying goes, better be penny wise, rather than pound foolish. 

A carton of Izumio (30 packs of 200ml Hydrogenated water) and a bottle of Super Lutein (100 capsules) cost RM435 each if purchased individually at member price. However, this month the company (Naturally Plus) is offering a buy-12-free-3 promotion, with waived membership fees of RM122 till 30th April 2015. So I'm taking this opportunity to reduce my cost by organising a group buy, which would amount to RM350 each. For those interested to join me, please kindly drop me an email at tylic@yahoo.com or text me @ 012-4212010. I would be glad to share the details with you. I can assure you that this would be your smartest health investment ever.

(Note: Price of products quoted above are only valid till 30 April 2015. The prices will probably increase from 1st May 2015 onwards as there are rumours that the package would be reduced to buy-12-free-2 instead, as practiced in other country like USA this month. Furthermore, there would be an additional RM122 for membership fees after 30th April).
P/S: The baby is not sale, the Izumio is :)
