I recently received several products to review from Swanson, and wanted to use them each more than once before I put my name next to an opinion.
Before I get started….go check out my guest post on Lindsay’s blog, Cotter Crunch!
Anthony from Swanson Health Products sent me: Tom’s toothpaste, Xylosweet, Dulse powder, ground flax, and hand soap. I had used most of these things in a different variety before, so I was happy to try them out. Read the review…or skip to the bottom and enter the giveaway! You can win a $25 gift certificate to Swanson Health Products—it’s an online store where you can get all kinds of healthy products.
The reason all the pictures have me holding the products is because I live in NY where it’s dark and gray, and in order to use natural light…I need to be near a window (and my desk was covered with papers!).
I like this Fine Milled Flax—and will definitely buy it again. It’s different than regular ground flaxseed because it is finely ground into a powder, so it blends better into smoothies and other stuff. I put it in several smoothies, and only noticed it when I put in too much… The benefits of flax? Omegas, dietary fiber, antioxidants, immune boost…
I put the Xylosweet in my coffee for a few days (and then I decided to stop drinking coffee again). I put it in a few smoothies, and in some protein ice cream. It was good! It doesn’t taste exactly like sugar, but there’s no weird aftertaste or anything.
The hand soap—it’s great. Not a ton to say about the hand soap, except that I like it and it doesn’t feel or smell like chemicals but it still seems like it works!
I saved the best for last….I was not super excited about this one. I once used a trial size of Tom’s a few years ago and thought it was yucky. This? It’s like brushing your teeth with black jelly beans! In a good way. Joe loves it too. I got Fennel flavor, and I would have never chosen this flavor, but I like it a lot. Plus, it works really well–my teeth felt really clean after I used it. I totally recommend this, especially if you are a fan of licorice. It’s a little more gooey than regular toothpaste.
Anthony told me we could give one person a $25 gift card.
