Some of the key reasons to consider supplements

There are many reasons why people now use supplements on a regular basis to help boost their health. One of the key benefits is that is offers a simple and very convenient means of boosting health. We all want to enjoy good health but achieving this with today’s fast pace of life can be difficult. Often, we end up eating lots of fast food, failing to get enough necessary nutrients, and failing to live a healthy lifestyle, all of which can take its toll. With the use of the right supplements, you can counteract some of these issues by boosting your immune system and aiding your health.

Another key benefit of using supplements to help improve your health is that there are so many different options available these days. Finding the right supplements for your needs is much easier now because you can get online and browse a huge variety of options designed to meet different needs and goals. You can also more effectively research the various supplements you are interested in when you go online.

You will then be able to determine with far greater ease whether these are the right supplements for your needs.

For example, people who are vegetarian or vegan may miss out on many valuable nutrients in their day to day diet but can make up for this by taking the right supplements. Those that cannot tolerate dairy products may miss out on nutrients such as calcium but can make up for this by taking supplements.

With so many different supplement options open to you these days, boosting your health has never been easier. You can also find plenty of supplements made from totally natural ingredients to provide greater peace of mind.

Key factors you need to consider when choosing supplements

There are a number of key factors that you need to take into considerations when you are choosing supplements to aid your health. This is something that will make it much easier for you to find the best ones for your needs. Some of the key considerations you need to look at include:

  • Pricing: The cost of supplements can vary widely based on a number of factors. This includes the brand of the supplements, where you purchase from, the size or quantity of the order, shipping costs, and whether you purchase in bulk. The price is obviously an important factor to ensure you can afford the supplements. However, you should never base your decision on price alone when it comes to products such as this, as quality is vitally important
  • Reviews: It is important to take time to look at reviews of any supplements you are considering buying for your health. The more reviews you can look at the better. This is something you can do with ease simply by going online and using trusted review sites to get unbiased reviews and opinions from others who have already tried the supplements. This then enables you to make a more informed choice and learn more about the safety and effectiveness of the supplements you are thinking of buying.
  • Ingredients: You need to make sure that you purchase supplements that are not only effective but also safe. As such, you should make a point of checking the ingredients before you purchase. You may be looking for supplements that are all natural or you may have sensitivities to certain ingredients.

By making sure you check the list of ingredients before you buy, you can avoid any issues and boost safety measures for yourself. Another key point to bear in mind is that not all supplements are suitable for vegetarians. So, if you are veggie or vegan, make sure you check and see whether they are suitable before you purchase.

  • Special deals: With products such as supplements, you can often get special deals if you purchase more than one bottle or pack. This is something that is well worth looking at if you want to save yourself time, hassle, and money. Often you will get web based exclusives where you can get two or three bottles at a knock down price. If you have already used the supplements before in the past and know they work for you, it is well worth doing this.
  • Effectiveness: You need to ensure that the supplements you purchase are designed for your needs and that they are effective in terms of what they do. Some supplements are created only for one thing while others can help you in multiple ways. You need to take time to think about your goals and what you want to achieve from taking the supplements. You can then check the different options to see which ones are best suited to your needs and are likely to be the most effective for you.
  • The supplier: In addition to looking at the supplements themselves, it is also worth looking at the website or supplier you are considering buying from. You should ensure you buy from a reputable supplier that provides a good level of service as well as high quality products. This will provide you with greater protection and peace of mind when it comes to buying supplements to aid your health.
Enjoy the benefits of taking the right supplements by doing your research

By taking all of these factors into consideration, you can look forward to the benefits that come with using the right supplements. You can also avoid paying over the odds and you can get a great deal on the supplements you wish to purchase. In addition, you can benefit from finding out what others thought about the product before you buy, which means you are less likely to end up with an ineffective or low quality product. By doing your research thoroughly, you are far more likely to find supplements that are ideal for your needs, your budget, and to help you achieve your goals.

How This Twice Bankrupt Founder Built Herself Up To A $240M Net Worth

Nobody knows what it's like to be sh*t out of luck like Suzy Batiz. Maybe that's why her million-dollar idea was a spray to stop your sh*t from stinking.

Yes, this woman is on a mission to keep your bathroom dos (and don'ts) on the DL, and she is doing it all with a hefty dose of personal philosophy and spirituality. It's hard to pick just one place to start with a maverick like Batiz. Though, maverick doesn't quite do her justice.

We could talk about her early life, growing up poor in Arkansas with two parents struggling with addiction and mental health problems. Or we could discuss her two bankruptcies and a lifelong history of failed hustles and side-hustles. Then there's her personal life; she's been divorced twice, has three kids, and is a survivor of abuse. You could say she's been through some sh*t. (Okay, the poop jokes end here, I swear.) If this all sounds too crazy to believe already then you better stop reading now because it gets wilder. This woman is all that and then some.

But, there's no time like the present, so I guess we'll start there.

Suzy Batiz is one of the richest self-made women in America with a net worth of $240 million. She's currently working on uplifting other business owners and creative-thinkers with her personal and professional philosophy of "alive ideas" as well as running her own companies, Supernatural, a 100% natural cleaning product company, and Poo~Pourri, the famous odor-eliminating toilet spray line that started it all with a bang (or a plop). (Okay, now the poop jokes are really done.)

Poo-Pourri's first commercial, which has now garnered almost 50 million views since its release in 2013, absolutely blew away viewers with its hilariously crass yet poetic verbiage surrounding this lovely woman's "cavernous bowels." Even I remember first seeing it almost seven years ago. Though I wasn't even sure if it was a real product at first. I was so busy laughing that I almost missed the line: "Yes, it is a real product. And yes, it really works." No one but Batiz could have thought up an idea so new, so wild, and at the same time so deeply necessary for people everywhere. It seems that poop is the market's natural equalizer.

(Seriously though, how good is this commercial?)

She's reached some of the highest peaks of success when it comes to consumer goods, but Batiz's newest venture asks people to turn inward and evaluate their thoughts and personal processes to support a culture of deeply conscious creation. Alive Ideas represents all of the lessons in both entrepreneurship and spirituality that Batiz has learned firsthand. Because, for her, the entrepreneurial and the spiritual are often one and the same. In her own words:

"Your external reality is just a reflection of your internal reality, so you have to do your personal work to shift from the inside out."

She takes this marriage of philosophies very seriously and infuses it into every level of her business, offering her employees training in transcendental meditation (a non-negotiable daily activity for Batiz) and Headspace app subscriptions. Batiz knows that good work has to start from the inside out, and that's why she's so keen to share this philosophy with the world and help other people realize that, too. That's what this new enterprise is all about.

Alive ideas are those twinges of inspiration that you can feel in every inch of your being — the ones that are just bursting to take shape in the world. Take Poo-Pourri as a perfect example, it was something that no one could have expected. A product that needed to exist, but a need that had never before been conceptualized (let alone actualized) by anybody. Until Batiz, that is.

Suzy Batiz

She's always been a "natural creator," so it's only natural that her current state of being revolves around bringing to life new ideas and products. But even that could only have come about through what she describes as the "luxury of losing everything."

It took 38 years and a lifetime of both personal and professional hardships before Batiz was ready to call it quits. After all the hustles, there was just no hustle left in her.

So she took a four-year spiritual sabbatical, during which she realized that she'd spent her entire life thus far "selling out" and "making deals" for all the wrong reasons. "Basically, I'd lost it all and didn't even have a good time doing it!" That was what really set her off. "It was only when I changed my mindset to only follow ideas that lit me up that the real success started flowing." There's those alive idea's she's talking about!

Suzy Batiz is the antithesis of your stereotypical entrepreneur. She wears flowing skirts, makes poop jokes, and has the vibe of a fun-loving guru. She basically spent her entire life trying (and failing) to find success through financial means, only to lose everything and then some. It took hitting rock bottom to realize that she needed to start fresh. It was only once she'd chucked all of the typical toxic motivators out the window that her real genius could shine through all the bullsh*t.

Full Interview Transcript

1. How would you describe your climb from growing up, to bankruptcy, to millionaire? And how does it feel to have come so far?

I grew up in Arkansas very poor, with a mother that was depressed on pain pills and a father that was a bipolar alcoholic. From an early age, I had the impression that money was my way out. If I could just make money, I would be somebody and I would mean something in the world.

By the time I was 22, I'd already been married, bankrupt (for the first time), divorced and attempted suicide. Shortly after that, I met and married a wealthy man who turned out to be abusive. I clawed my way out of that terrible situation to find myself divorced again and homeless with two boys under the age of 2. I continued to work multiple jobs and soon met my ex-husband of 26 years. He was a drummer who didn't have much to offer aside from his love at the time, which sounded like a dream after the last situation I was in. I constantly hustled and side hustled, but all my business ventures typically ended in failure. At 38 years old, I lost funding for a dot com recruiting platform that I'd invested our life savings into, leading to my second bankruptcy and what I call "the luxury of losing everything".

I vowed to leave business behind entirely and went on a four-year spiritual sabbatical. I looked back and realized that I'd spent my whole life husting, selling out and making deals that felt wrong in order to get something I thought I wanted. Basically, I'd lost it all and didn't even have a good time doing it! This is when everything changed for me. It was only when I changed my mindset to only follow ideas that lit me up that the real success started flowing. I was no longer living for external validation, but rather from the inside out. Ironically, it was once I'd sworn off business and chasing money that my success and wealth came.

2. You seem to be innately entrepreneurial person, was there any moment or experience in your life that made you really think: "This is what I have to do."

I've always been a natural creator. Growing up we had very little, so if I wanted a new outfit for my Barbie, I'd sew it myself. I've always had that spirit in me — but at one point I actually believed I was the worst entrepreneur in the world. I had more than a dozen failed businesses and two bankruptcies by the time I was 38, so I swore off business altogether. It wasn't until I realized chasing money and success wasn't making me happy and I did my internal work that Poo~Pourri was born.

A few years later, a friend of mine was interviewing and asked how I knew which ideas to follow — how could I tell which ones would turn out to be successful? The question piqued my interest. I realized it had nothing to do with the analytical or rational reasons a business should succeed. Rather, I remembered the feeling in my body when I first got the idea for Poo~Pourri. I felt a zing up my left arm, I got chill bumps, it felt like everything went into hi-def and I had so much energy to research and create because the idea wouldn't leave me alone. My curiosity continued and I had a conversation with Dr. Bruce Lipton to ask him a burning question: Can ideas be alive? His answer, in short, was: absolutely! He said that everything, including thoughts and ideas, has energy, and "every living thing is seeking more life-force energy." This was my aha moment. When I focused on ideas that gave me energy, that felt ALIVE, they turned out to be more resilient and successful. I followed the breadcrumbs of what made me feel alive and it's led me to here — what a wild ride!

3. What drives you to keep moving forward in life and in business after all the success you've attained thus far?

My ultimate goal is to reach my highest evolution in this lifetime. I strive to be lit up daily in my personal and business life and follow only things that resonate (though it's a practice and I misstep all the time). I love bringing alive ideas into physical form, and my businesses are those manifestations. I truly believe that I was lucky enough to have the luxury of losing everything. I know that at any time I can lose it all, and if that happens, I want to make sure I can look back and know I had a damn good time.

4. A lot of people feel that there is a big disconnect between capitalism and spiritually, but you seem to have found a sweet spot for both yourself and your business ventures. How closely intertwined is your spirituality with your entrepreneurial ventures? And why?

I don't think of things as being a part of my work life or a part of my personal spiritual life. It's all the same for me. Your external reality is just a reflection of your internal reality, so you have to do your personal work to shift from the inside out. Daily transcendental meditation is my number-one non-negotiable. Starting my day with space to clear out the noise of the outside world has been just as essential for my business as it has for my personal wellness. I share this gift with Poo~Pourri employees as well by offering TM training and Headspace app subscriptions and providing only healthy fuel and snacks in the office so we are all operating at optimal levels.

I also believe that there's nothing wrong with wanting money and success. Who wouldn't? But where I've found the most impact is in my actions. If I'm doing something or chasing an idea only to get money, it doesn't come. When I do my internal work and follow what's resonant because it feels good within my being, wouldn't you know that's when the money flows.

5. If you could go back in time and tell your younger self that you'd one day be one of America's richest self-made women by way of selling poop products, how do you think you'd react?

I'd lose my shit and probably laugh in your face because it would be so far beyond what I could have imagined. When I was little, I had the dream of working in a factory or at the post office because those were steady and consistent jobs. I wouldn't have ever even known to dream of being the one to finally break a pattern of generational poverty.

Breaking these types of patterns, the ones that are outdated and no longer serve us, is a huge passion of mine. I've got the world comfortable talking about shit, now what else can we get people to talk about?
