Some pink drink for me and some for him. 💕
Some of you may think...”You’re giving that to him?? Omg, what are you thinking?” #sharingwhatworksforus
👍🏻 So, why do I give a few ounces of my beloved “pink drink” to my tiny sweetness? 🤷🏼♀️ 3️⃣ words....ALPHA. LIPOIC. ACID
Once we received Ethan’s dx of EDS & Dysautonomia I was on the hunt for good ways to combat his symptoms. To help his body function the best it can WITHOUT using meds. I had already started him on the xfactor kids which has helped him with constipation and regular poops. #hooray
💩 ALL WHILE, giving his body key vitamins/minerals without sugar. #thegutfeedsonsugar #toomanyantibiotics #malabsorption
Unfortunately, fatigue is a VERY real part of his life. Napping for hours and struggling after therapy sessions. Pain has also been an ongoing issue.
I HAD to find an alternative. #mamasjob
ALA has many benefits. A few being... 🌱it plays a key role in energy production. #fatiguehelp
🌱It also functions as an antioxidant, protecting the cells from damage and helping restore levels of other antioxidants, like vitamins C and E. These 2 vitamins are key for E’s health because they help prevent bruising and promote collagen. #edsprobs
🌱Alpha-lipoic acid also reduces #inflammation
which helps with pain in his joints and muscles.
On top of the ALA, this Slim contains XOS which is a prebiotic that FEEDS the probiotics in his multivitamin. Key for his immune health and sleep. #twothumbsup
SO, now you know. 🗣 You know Slim is more than what you might have thought. You know it’s benefiting my child and the symptoms he struggles with daily. This gem is WAY more than losing some pounds. It’s, LITERALLY, helping my child’s body function as appropriately as possible. #BOOM
