Talking to Young Adults About Digestive Health -- Plus a Giveaway for a $50 Gift Code to ReNew Life!

One of my sons just left for college for the first time, so he’ll no longer be eating good home-cooked meals. He’ll be making his own choices about what he puts into his body, and he may not make the best selections for a healthy digestive system. ReNew Life recently launched their Young Adult Education Initiative with the goal of getting young adults like my son to pay closer attention to their digestive health. Obviously, this is not normally a very exciting subject, so they’ve added some humor to their education efforts. Check out this video that features a little, er, “potty humor”!



[Email subscribers, please click on the title of this post to access the video online.]

When you visit ReNew Life’s Facebook page and click on “HowDoesPooMoveU,” you’ll find many other videos about digestive health that were submitted by people for a video contest as part of ReNew’s Young Adult Education Initiative.

ReNew Life produces quality nutritional supplements that range from high-potency probiotics to fiber and Omega-3 fish oils. Their goal is to “keep you regular and then some”! They have just about any product you might need for optimal digestive health for adults, children, and even pets! I was given the opportunity to choose a product from their website and elected to try their bestselling product: Ultimate Flora Vaginal Support, which is specially designed for women to promote vaginal and urinary tract health. My body tolerated this product very well, and I had no side effects or health issues while taking it. Of course, I can’t say for sure if there was a connection between taking this product and my good health, but I’m willing to continue taking it in the hopes that I will continue to enjoy excellent urinary and vaginal health!

If your family’s digestive health is important to you, you’ll want to visit www.renewlife.com and check out all of their products. And if, like me, you have a young adult in your family, steer them over to the “HowDoesPooMoveU” section of ReNew Life’s Facebook page! It’s a great way to break the ice in bringing up a subject that’s not necessarily pleasant to discuss.
