I recently had the opportunity to fly to Chicago with some really amazing bloggers to learn more about NOW Foods brand and products and it was really a lightbulb moment for me, or an eye opener if you will. You see, I’ve been using NOW supplements for as long as I can remember mainly because they’re all natural. It wasn’t until my trip that I really got a good look at their products and the wonderful people behind them, making sure each and every supplement and product meets the highest standards in the world, perhaps, that I knew I was making the best decision of my life by choosing this brand.
Now Foods test and retest each batch and then they have 3rd party testing to test their tests. This is a company that doesn’t just want to get everything perfect, they want to perfect every single move they make from the bottom to the top. It was incredible to see how everything was made and all of the equipment they use to make sure no mistakes are made. When their products are ready to sell, their customers can have peace of mind that they’re getting the best product available anywhere in the world.
As previously mentioned, I’ve been using NOW products for as long as I can recall and after my trip, it’s safe to say they’re the only company I will use and recommend because I formed a trust of this company in ways I can’t explain. If any of you are in the Chicago area or are going to be, call them to set up a tour to see for yourself why you should buy their products over the rest.
After I arrived at the Eaglewood Resort & Spa, I had time to go through all of the swag they had waiting for me in my room. I had no idea that NOW Foods offered so many products with a comprehensive approach to wellness, over 1,400 to be exact. They even sell essential oils and toothpaste just to give you an idea. Their bath products were a nice surprise because I’m so picky about what I put on my skin. And even foods are available from brownies to oils to macaroni to nuts. There are just too many items to name in one post. Now I can buy just about everything I need from one company. And let me tell you, their sports line is impressive.
After a little rest, we were shuttled off to learn how to cook a meal for busy moms at Cooking Skills Academy, using NOW brand ingredients. We were divided up into teams, and I was on the red team. I was really excited that our team placed 2nd in a cook off. I have to say that our chicken was pretty impressive. My video is terrible but I’m sharing it anyway.
Later that night we were treated to a wonderful meal and we were able to mingle with some of the head honchos of NOW Foods to ask questions and learn more. I’ve never in my life met employees of a company who LOVED their jobs as much as these guys and gals do. They know everything about everything if that makes sense. They were so informed, that it impressed me to no end. After arriving back to the resort, I shot a few photos of my room and my amazing view of the golf course from the 10th floor.
The next day, we participated in pyro on the terrace at the resort. I believe it’s the combined baby of yoga and pilates. My body is just now recovering from the moves, hee hee, many of which I couldn’t do, lol. It was fun to learn something new though and I can’t think of a better way to get the day started. Even though I hit the coffee shop first. You know how I am about my coffee.
We then went to a health and beauty class to learn how to make some DIY products using NOW oils and essential oils. I haven’t had time to make more since being home because I headed off on another adventure, but I will. I plan to make the ladies in our auxiliary some foaming hand wash this weekend. I can’t wait to see their reaction to using it. The scent is incredibly uplifting.
After that, we had breakfast and got ready for our tour of the NOW Foods facility. It was a learning experience I won’t soon forget. I guess you could say it was a life changing moment for me because I realized that there were products I needed that I wasn’t even aware existed. I’ve been taking them religiously and without fail since returning home. I was planning to start an energy product next week but I went ahead and started it yesterday. There’s no caffeine in it, just good all natural products that even after 2 doses, is giving me the boost I needed to sail into the weekend.
We were then treated to another amazing meal and we learned more about the different products and line of products before flying safely home. What I learned during my tour is that NOW’s Quality Control and Quality Assurance programs are really what sets it apart. I learned all of the reasons that make it a trusted natural products manufacturer. Despite what many in the media are saying, the supplements industry is regulated and NOW goes above and beyond what is required to ensure it brings pure and effective natural products to market. I have confidence that what’s on the label is what’s in their products.
