As a teen, Jessie had no idea that her part time job at a local gym would lead to a career in fitness. After all, working at the gym was only temporary while she made her way through university. Plus, teaching fitness classes seemed to balance out the increasingly hectic party lifestyle she was adopting in her twenties.
Indulging in unhealthy foods and celebrating with a little too much alcohol left Jessie with painful intestinal cramps and frequent visits to the bathroom – symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Preparing for her first fitness competition meant that she had to completely change her diet, and along with it, her IBS symptoms disappeared. “I used to think I was fit because I worked out all the time,” says Jessie, “but I realized you can’t be healthy unless you change your diet, too.”
CanPrev Core for Women
“I wake up at 5 am and teach yoga and train clients all day long. In the morning I throw in some overnight soaked oats or cooked oatmeal into my blender, plus a banana, some goji berries, chia seeds, avocado and spinach with some unsweetened soy milk or water and a scoop of CanPrev Core.”
I’ve been taking CanPrev’s Prenatal Multi for years prior to having my baby girl. It’s basically my go-to multivitamin and I’m confident that it gives me the nutrients I need to thrive on my day-to-day activities. Now more than ever, it’s crucial that I take my Prenatal Multi daily, as I need to keep up with my daughter and make sure she’s also getting all the nutrients she needs.
Iron Bis-Glycinate 20
During my pregnancy and postpartum, it’s been really important for me to keep my iron levels in check. I’ve added CanPrev’s Iron Bis-Glycinate 20 into my regimen, which my midwife approves and likes very much, as it contains added B vitamins to help with absorption and assimilation of iron.
