Enjoying a bit of local love from the Marin IJ - thank you Colleen Bidwell @marinij for the fabulous snapshot piece about our founder (link in the bio above). It’s been such a remarkable first year with tremendous support from the community and bliss it’s been to hear the delight from customers, business neighbors, and friends alike as they stumble upon this awesome press. As a business that's actively working to engage in meaningful conversations with every customer, this kind of local love is the cream of the crop for us. ✨🤗 When women share their stories we all benefit and right now a remarkable turning of the tide is occurring with women speaking up about their health in ways like never before. We are here to shout from the mountain tops to women: stay present in every conversation about your body and your wellness and proactively support the numerous complex processes in each cell of your being while working with the body to facilitate healing and energized living! Please challenge the notion that every prescription is necessary. Always remember that putting one's health first is not selfish but an act of courage and one powerful way to create the kind of change that makes herstory. 👊🏼👩🏻Shoutout to @paulapagepr for believing in us so completely and to @thefprojectco for galvanizing our efforts with fierce female founders nationwide! #marin #womenshealth #energizedliving #vegetariansupplements #bywomenforwomen #marinij #hervitalway #proactivesupport

Gratitude. It’s everything. So simple and yet powerfully transformative. Giving thanks for all of the many wonders in our lives on a daily basis is pure energetic bliss for our cellular health. Here is our loving reminder as we embark on what is for some a very hectic several weeks of trying to balance it all: swell with gratitude for all that you have and all that you are, and genuinely take care of YOU. 💕💕 Yes that’s right. Do things for yourself. This notion that it’s selfish to put yourself first is pure rubbish. Self care is one of the most loving acts that you can do for others. When we properly care for ourself we are better equipped to care for the world. 💕💕 So take some time for you. Exercise, eat what you enjoy and what you know to be energizing - before you go to big gatherings, schedule time with people who you are crazy about, make thoughtful cards instead of buying more stuff. Show up to parties calm, clear, centered, and nourished and then truly connect with others while coming from a place of tremendous self love. 💕💕 Then, if anyone around you starts to encroach on your bliss, simply smile and walk away. #wisdom2share #strongertoday #selfcare #healthyholidays #womenshealth #blissout #belovesharelove #proactivesupport #fierceandvital #gratitude

Our personal health journeys and stories are so important; ultimately they unite us in beautifully powerful ways that lead to healing. Full of gratitude for people like @whatrobineats who use social platforms to engage in honest and thoughtful dialogues with women every day. It’s never just about selling product, it’s about empowering women to advocate for their own health. Grateful for the unexpected mention 💛 ...#repost From pregnancy glow to what the heck is that?! 🤤😳 #postpartumskincare . Throughout pregnancy my skin was on it’s best behavior. Minimal red spots, not too dry, and not too oily. About a week after Poppy was born I noticed my skin getting all sorts of wonky. #hormones 😬Postpartum our body is going through SO much so of course your skin is going to be a little crazy. I recently learned a few tricks for my skin after chatting with Amy from @hervitalway and have seen major improvements. This is not sponsored, Amy has been helping me rebalance my hormones since before getting pregnant. I am so thankful for her knowledge! Here’s what she suggested below: * Evening Primrose Oil capsules every day. * A tea blend with equal parts: - Lady’s Mantle - Red Raspberry Leaf - Lemon Balm - Holy Basil You can get these at a local herb shop or order online from Mountain Rose Herbs. This tea blend is ok to drink 1-3 times a day. Total game changer. * Schisandra * Ashwagandha - helpful for restoring energy levels while nourishing and balancing. Amy suggests taking these herbs every other day to start. Both are safe with nursing but she always staggers a new herb so that you can ease into introducing it to your milk supply. Please talk with your doctor if you are taking medication and do your research before taking these herbs. They have helped my skin so much but everyone is different and needs different things for their body. Hoping that some of the herbs Amy suggested can help you because she has helped me so much. Shoutout to @instagram for bringing women together to help each other! 🙏🏻❤️ #whatrobineats

Every day our body is tasked with a multitude of remarkable functions that are key to our survival. Adding a little cellular strength training can improve energy, immune response, nervous system health, and mental focus while giving the body additional support to combat stress - of all kinds. CoQ10 is a coenzyme that is used in the energy center of every cell in the body. Not only does CoQ10 scavenge and destroy free radicals that cause cardiovascular problems and heart disease, it sparks the heart’s energy production allowing it to pump more efficiently and is fundamental for daily energy levels. When CoQ10 levels decline, energy wanes. 😴 We believe that every woman after the age of 30 can benefit greatly from CoQ10 supplementation. CoQ10 exists naturally in food sources but in small doses primarily from meat that aren’t significant enough to increase CoQ10 levels. At her vital way we use USP Grade, fermented, vegan CoQ10 to provide optimal antioxidant and cellular energy support, particularly to the heart. ❤️✨ When you think of all of the complex processes that a woman’s body performs it’s no wonder that there is ample clinical evidence to support the very real systemic benefits to CoQ10 supplementation. CoQ10 has many benefits, but long-term cardiovascular support is perhaps its most vital property. We celebrate daily proactive support that’s kind to the body while promoting energized living. If you’d like to try a sample of CoQ10, her vital way is happy to ship a free two week supply out in your next order. Just let us know and consider it done. #womenshealth #vegetarian #strongertoday #energizedliving #heartsupplements #energy #proactivesupport

As a founding member of The F Project we will be featuring each of our partnering brands to shine a light on rockstar female founded businesses that everyone should know about. We’re using our collective voices, sharing our stories, and celebrating one another in a collaborative commerce model unlike any other. Take the pledge @thefprojectco and exercise your spending power! When women come together, we flip the script! 💫👊 Meet Janie Cooke and Caroline Nix, the founders of O-Venture and the coveted Big O Key Ring.

The longtime friends and working mothers have taken their patented products and grown O-Venture from modest beginnings into a widely distributed and cherished brand sold in over 2000 boutiques throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Japan. Their life-changing, patented Big O Key Ring was named by @OprahMagazine as one of Oprah's Favorite Things and Janie and Caroline have been awarded the Leg Up Award for Female Entrepreneurs by Sara Blakely, founder and CEO of @SPANX. 🙌💖 Everyone @hervitalway is obsessed with the The Big O Key Ring calling it a total game changer in the daily purse-fishing pursuit for keys!!! An oversized bracelet that slides over the wrist, the Big O Key Ring gives you a free hand for the many things that you juggle every day and ensures that you'll never lose your keys again. We love the bright, whimsical colors, sleek designs, and the vegan options. Women have big things on the agenda; now is not the time to get distracted by clutter or stress the small stuff. The Big O Key Ring is one thoughtfully designed, elegantly executed product made by women and for women and the perfect gift for the multi-tasking, rockstar, super-hero women in your life (including you). 😉👩🏻👵🏼👷🏽‍♀️👩🏾‍🔧 O-Venture is truly a family affair with Janie and Caroline’s husbands and now grown children all helping out to bring their practical and stylish solutions to women everywhere!

Echinacea purpurea never stops being extraordinary! When we talk about proactive support here is what we strive for: adding subtle changes to the body’s intake of key phytonutrients, minerals, and vitamins that nurture, energize, balance, and defend our cellular health. No one should just accept that getting sick is part of every winter. If you stay attuned to your body and really listen and pay attention you’ll notice ample cues that trouble is brewing, and the beautiful thing about the body is that if you act swiftly and give it what it needs, illness will simply pass you by. So how do we stay well? In addition to getting adequate sleep, staying away from processed sugar, exercising, and eating an abundance of brightly colored, whole foods and nourishing soups, we take premium echinacea, zinc, and non-GMO vitamin C at key times throughout the season. ❄️✨ Like with so many herbs, scientists still don’t completely understand the power of echinacea. Used as medicine for centuries, numerous studies show echinacea’s robust antiviral action and keen ability to increase white blood cell counts (the cells that fight infection). We use a pure and potent echinacea at her vital way with guaranteed levels of the cichoric acid, along with essential zinc, and non-GMO vitamin C. While everyone’s body is different we have used echinacea in practice with huge success, particularly at the first sign of illness. What are some ways that the body tries to tell us that it’s under attack? Headaches, low energy, sore throat, a general ache in the neck and shoulders. If you feel any of these things - rest, get out your herbal teas, broths, and take Our Defense, Immune Formula twice a day - and you’ll be leaping, bounding, and soaring above the fray! 🌸 ✨👊 #womenshealth #proactivesupport #energizedliving #hervitalway #womenempowerment #winterwellness #wellness #coldandflu #echinacea #supplements #healthylifestyle

Reignite, find, nurture, and protect the giddy part of your being and never underestimate how critical it is for energized living. The journey to good health can be fraught with frustration. When you’re tired, stressed, and juggling multiple responsibilities - finding the time and energy to completely change the way that you eat, live, think, exercise, behave, etc. can be daunting which is why resolutions and radical changes are so hard for most people to stick with. But what if there’s something that most of us are forgetting about? We are charged beings. We are energetic entities; from a practical standpoint alone there are billions of electrical functions happening within each of us - there’s a complex electrical system that controls every bodily function and a disruption to that system can lead to illness. ✨🤒 Think about what is the fastest way to influence the over 30 trillion cells that are all working to maintain balance, harmony, and energized living inside the walls of your being? Every cell in the body is 'digesting’ the world around you and what you say, think, feel, eat, do, even who you surround yourself with – impacts your cellular health and your energy. Cells want to be energized. Cells want to have optimal nourishment. Cells want to rid the body of toxins. Cells want to perform thousands of elaborate processes on your behalf and they want to have the energy to be able to succeed. ✨🙌💫 So what’s your charge today and how can you keep the energy flowing? Only you can answer that question. I know for me it means waking up every morning before the sun and doing my own improvisational part dance, part tai chi - in the dark, it means meditating, fasting on occasion, gardening every day even if it’s just for 30 minutes, and surrounding myself with people who talk about big ideas and who believe in loving kindness. Health is not a linear journey. Don’t get stuck in one approach. Find ways to bring you to your health journey; the you that came into this world full of play and exploration and yes, giddy energy. Explore health from many angles and stay charged. Fantastically complex and staggeringly beautiful. That’s you. Bring you to your health. ✨👍❤

Simple, beautiful solutions that work with the body ✨ today we’re celebrating our clinically validated, Cranberex® Oregon Cranberry 36mg PAC that you can take as an everyday tonic ($13/month) to help avoid unpleasant occurrences, or when you really need it most. At her vital way we feel that a healthy UTI-free life is definitely worth dancing about, and it shouldn’t break the bank or disrupt one’s life to achieve this. 🙌 Disruptive UTI’s will affect about a half of all women in their lifetime; athletes, diabetics, and the vast majority of dementia patients. For many this problem will be a re-occurring one. Unfortunately, research now shows that today’s favored solution, long-term antibiotic use, may also be one factor that increases this problem as resistant strains of bacteria develop. Made from 100% Oregon Cranberries with the highest levels of active proanthocyanidins (PAC’s) - many times higher than other brands, Cranberex’s power has been confirmed by two clinical studies at Rutgers University. 🌿👩🏻‍🔬 About 85% of the world’s Cranberry crop is produced in the Northeast (primarily Wisconsin and Massachusetts). But a small percentage of U.S. Cranberry is grown in the cool coastal areas of Oregon, and this climate produces some special qualities in the harvested fruit: the proanthocyanidin content in Oregon grown Cranberry is significantly higher than in fruit harvested in the Northeast. This high content of therapeutic constituents is why the source of Cranberex® begins on the Oregon coastline. We utilize the whole fruit (rather than from juice or pommace) for the most consistent, highly concentrated cranberry product on the market. 👊🤗 #strongertoday #wisdom2share #womenshealth #energizedliving #UTI #proactivesupport #beyourownhealthadvocate #cranberex #cranberry

Our TurmerZing mention in Massage Magazine perfectly joins two of our favorite ways to keep inflammation at bay: massage and high potency turmeric + ginger extracts. Massage is bliss. Massage is powerful. Let’s be honest - the pace of life, this complex world of ours - it can impact our health and our energy. Staying open and vulnerable is what life asks of us all and so the challenge becomes how do we clear the stuff? How do we go forth with love in our hearts and purpose in our being amidst all of the noise? Massage helps. Addressing inflammation helps. 👍💗 We used to rarely get massages and viewed them only as a luxury - but now that we’re mothers and business owners who are wildly passionate and protective about staying energized, we get massages regularly. More important than new clothes, eating out, and worth occasionally ditching our daily coffee shop trip for - massage is a giving over; a time to acknowledge that getting help to work out the kinks that come from living and caring is sooooooo necessary. 🙌🤗 So often we are encouraged in our society to make health decisions that don’t honor the vastly complex, interconnectivity of our beings. To stay on track to be the best version of ourself while at the same time staying open to all of the true beauty that exists in the world, takes work. Work in accordance with the body to keep inflammation at bay and use it all - massage, yoga, wholesome nutrition, sound healing, exercise in nature, herbs, supplements, and a joyfulness practice that involves dancing silly at least once a week - because health is not just the absence of disease. 😏 If you’re local to Marin or anywhere nearby, give yourself a treat and book an appointment with the best healing massage therapist that we know @wellneststudio - Here’s to Energized Living! ✨👊 #womenshealth #proactivesupport #energizedliving #hervitalway #turmeric #ginger #inflammation #wellness #massage

Being kind to yourself and to others is a radical act of ‘change' that is deeply energizing. So often in life when we want to see progress we forget about the little things that truly fuel us. Everyone’s health journey is different and finding what works for you is wonderfully empowering - in a crazy, exhilarating sort of way. Which is why we are on a mission to inspire every women to put their health first and to reconnect with their own intuitive healing energy. Today. A superb way to make a shift towards wellness is to step outside of yourself and to offer kindness to someone who is NOT expecting it. 😯✨ An energized system is closer to health than to disease and so to move the pendulum toward health start inviting acts that energize your spirit; your heart spirit to be very specific. We have a lot more control over what’s circulating through our being than we realize. If you’re finding life a struggle right now and if you feel less than energized and less than happy - we are here to remind you to be generous with yourself (in thoughts, feelings, and actions) and then to pause the hamster brain that is telling you everything that you are not doing correctly and shift into a mindset of: what can I do right now to shine a light on someone else? It’s an odd thing to think about in times of discomfort, but there is a great deal of magic that comes from stepping outside of yourself to simply lift up someone else. 💫💕 When we’re healthy and living with more energy it’s easier to be generous in life, but even when you’re not feeling 100% you can actually use generosity to get you back to being whole. The reality is that most of us have an extraordinary amount of abundance in our lives and deep down, we all know that. If life becomes too self focused or negative, it becomes stagnant because at a cellular level we are hardwired to want to contribute and to be part of something much greater than ourselves. When we feel good about who we are and what we’re doing in the world; we take better care of ourselves. So enjoy this little daily mantra of ours to inspire you to randomly engage in acts of kindness that energize the spirit. 🤗✨👊💕

Exploring the numerous ways that alternative remedies can support the body with kindness, intelligence, and patience - while encouraging a deep respect and understanding for the body's ability to heal is a service that we applaud, wholeheartedly. We love, love, love the focus of publications like Natural Solutions Magazine that give a voice to all types of wellness practitioners. When we wrote this article on heart health and women it was with a passion and 100% commitment for proactive support; we are here, first and foremost, to inspire women to advocate for their own health. 👊✨💕 It’s shocking that heart disease is the number one cause of death amongst women with 1 in 4 women dying from heart attacks each year - and we feel strongly that this is entirely preventable. Education and outreach are essential so that an understanding of the heart, hormones, and the nervous system, along with access to solutions and lifestyle choices that are clinically proven to protect and support heart health, are known by women everywhere. 💫👍 Adding a little cellular strength training with heart protective supplements can improve energy, nervous system health, and counter inflammation all while supporting optimal heart function and arterial health. Along with regular joyful exercise, whole food fresh nourishment, mindfulness, and restorative sleep cycles - we celebrate daily proactive support that works with the body. If you are a woman we want you to know about unadulterated premium forms of Turmeric, Ginger, Milk Thistle, CoQ10 and L-Theanine and we want you to take special care of your hard working, vital heart. 💕✨💕#womenshealth #hearthealth #proactivesupport #hervitalway #energizedliving #turmeric #milkthistle

A day at the beach frolicking in the cool salty water is transformative. The ocean is magical splendor and it serves as the finest source of calcium for some of the world’s healthiest cultures. ✨🌿 An essential element that helps our bones stay strong and hardy, calcium is used by the body to: transmit impulses via the nervous system; control important nutrients, such as magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium; release hormones and enzymes that keep the body working properly; and aid in the reduction of PMS symptoms. 👊💫 Aquamin, a sustainably harvested, red algae sea calcium with wildly impressive human clinical validation, is a whole food calcium source containing a full complement of minerals such as magnesium, potassium, phosphorus and the trace minerals boron, strontium, vanadium, copper, silica, selenium and zinc - all of which are involved in bone health. 😉👍 What we consume along with our calcium is just as important as the form that we use. K2 and D3 are vital cofactors for calcium delivery, absorption and utilization. Which is why we’ve created one powerful all in one whole food calcium supplement with optimal cofactors that is stupendous for strong bones, hair, nails, skin, enzymatic action, circulatory health, nervous system function and much much more. 🙌 At around 25 years of age we all start to lose more bone mass than gain, but what most people don’t realize is that we can replace most of what is lost each day. ✨✨So here’s to proactive support and energized living, and more time frolicking in the sea.🧜🏼‍♀️🐳💦

Let’s nourish the complex clusters of beauty within. As we wrap up Mental Health Month we’re reflecting a lot on the meaningful work that has happened. The power of platforms like Instagram is that they allow for sharing - little glimpses into the lives of strangers - that ultimately have the ability to unite us and set into motion collective healing. 💫 To assume that we learn about mental health and/or how to manage it in school or in families, is a mistake. Most of us don’t know about mental health issues it until we, or someone we love, are battling with it. 🤼‍♂️ Inflammation, poor circulation, genetics, and a compromised gut microbiota have all been shown to cause mental illness. For people suffering from debilitating symptoms, one step in the right direction can set in motion a series of positive changes that together bring healing. That’s why for the last 30 days we have been giving away samples of one of our favorite proactive supplements: L-Theanine. With a unique ability to calm and focus the mind this mighty amino acid found in green tea leaves crosses the blood brain barrier and works within 20 minutes to reduce anxiety and nervous tension and promote mental clarity. We love its consistency, safety, and numerous immune enhancing benefits and how it settles one into a place where an optimistic thought, followed by healthful actions, can occur. It’s not an answer, it’s simply a very powerful, kick-starting tool. ✨🌿👊 "WOW, all I can say is what a difference L-Theanine makes. Anxiety runs in my family. I usually wake up feeling full of anxiety and often end up getting so overwhelmed with it. Since taking this, I have felt calm, rational and, most importantly, in control of my emotions. Thank you so much for introducing me to it.” Email support@hervitalway.com if you or someone you know would like a free 2 week sample. 🙌Our personal approach to mental wellness: exercise out in nature daily, consume a variety of fresh whole foods and healthy fats, avoid alcohol and sugar, follow an anti-inflammatory diet, limit time online, sing, take 200mg of pure L-Theanine once daily, and schedule downtime regularly. 🙏💕🌲🥦🥑
