Here’s where I tell you that I’ve struggled with water bottles for my kids for 8 years now.

Here’s where I also tell you that it ends now. Right here. With the Gululu Go! Those of us with kids know that finding the best summer camp or back to school gear can be daunting. Everything is “too something.” Too big or too little. Maybe too leaky or not leaky enough! Whatever it is, I want to pack my kids’ camp or school bags with something to feel great about. We all know that hydration is one of the most important facets of kids health this time of year. This year, we’re prepared.

We had one road trip a few years ago in which we forgot to bring water bottles. It was unusually hot in northern New England and we had to stop at a rest area and buy disposable cups that the kids didn’t even like or want to use. We learned from our mistakes never to get those things again! My kids need solid, sturdy and effective water bottles. There are so many reasons that the new Gululu Go is awesome. For one thing, it’s an interactive water bottle that not only keeps your kids hydrated, but it informs parents like you of your children’s water intake via a connected smartphone app! How cool is that?

For another thing, the fun water bottle has a screen on it that features a “pet”. Together, your child and the pet can go on underwater adventures – helping the pet to get back to the lost Planet Ima. Your child can “help” the new pet-friend by drinking water. So when your child drinks, two things happen. 1 – it’s helping the pet and 2 – you can stay updated via the app. The bottles come in yellow, blue or pink. AND, for every bottle purchased, one child in a developing country is provided with clean water for life with Gululu’s partnership with Generosity.org AND, the water bottle is 35% until June 24th!

When I think of summer camp, I can’t help but think about hydration, and most of that has to do with a kids water bottle, and how effective it is for them, and for you. I think about kids health at camp nearly every day that they go, and they’re signed up for many camp sessions this year. Scarlet and Des can’t wait to get their water bottles! Scarlet is old enough to understand that it’s not just the fun of the game – it’s that Gululu has a mission to hydrate children all over the world!

Here are some pretty cool tidbits about this kids water bottle:

  • Gululu complies with COPPA (children’s online privacy protection act)

  • The water bottles launch today and are available 35% off on pre-sale. Now is the time to get yours!

  • As mentioned, Gululu Go ensures your kids’ hydration by engaging them to care for a virtual pet. As they drink more water, the virtual pet (that they get to choose) grows and makes friends.

  • The bottles connect to your smartphone via an app, and you can see how much your kids are drinking throughout the day.

  • There are speakers that enable the virtual pets to talk and play sound effects and voice stories.

  • The water bottles are small in size – they’re light, easy to carry, and portable.

  • There’s a special cap and Spout – attached to the bottle and easier for drinking. There’s a latch for easy on-the-go.

  • The Gululu Go uses improved material – better Tritan inner layering.

  • There’s a magnetic charging cable – more portable and still cool.

  • The water bottles are fun to use! My kids’ eyes lit up just from hearing about it!

  • The product was featured in main media publications in more than 20 countries, including Vogue and Forbes

The Many Benefits of Curcumin For You and Your Dog!

This is a paid partnership with CurcuminPro, but all thoughts, photos, and product love are clearly my own!

CurcuminPro makes curcumin products of all kinds, including capsules, shakes, drink mixes, bottled drinks, jelly beans, chocolates, and even a pet food topper. See all the ways you can use it, and its many benefits!

That’s right. I’m about to blow your mind. When you think of ways to feel great, do you think of your pets too?

I’m no stranger to curcumin, as we’ve had it in our house for years. You may be wondering what it is? Curcumin is a substance found in turmeric, and it may help reduce inflammation. It may also help you manage aches and pains. That’s why I was excited to find CurcuminPro – a company that makes curcumin products of all kinds! And they’re really creative! They make capsules, shakes, drink mixes, bottled drinks, chocolates, and even jelly beans! That’s right. Jelly beans.

If that isn’t the coolest thing ever, then I don’t know what is! CurcuminPro also makes a pet food topper, which is also pretty exciting to this growing family. They developed a curcumin-protein conjugate called CPro. It makes curcumin 36 times more soluble than standard curcumin, which you generally have to take with pepper or piperine. This inflames the digestive tract to help you actually absorb it. This is the world’s first biosoluble curcumin supplement line, and it’s been on my radar for my family. To get more in-depth about curcumin, it’s a polyphenolic compound that is derived from the plant Curcuma Longa – commonly known as turmeric. And it’s awesome that it’s been used for centuries as a food preservative.

Curcumin has also been used to treat a wide variety of ailments in Ayurvedic medicine.

So here are the benefits! Curminoids are derived from an extraction of turmeric. They’re a rich source of anti-inflammatories and anti-oxidants, and this small plant is the subject of thousands of studies worldwide regarding its ability to assist the healing of the body. This is important because so many of our current illnesses and diseases are rooted in an issue of inflammation happening within different parts of the body. It has 3,000 years of use behind it, with no signs of stopping! It’s like the superfood of the supplement world! Basically there’s no reason not to use it. The jelly beans even say on the label to eat them and feel great. And CurcuminPro has made this great formula for various products.

Did I mention that there’s no soy, additives or fillers? 36 times more soluble. Super awesome. Jelly beans. Maximum bioavailable curcumin per dose. Yummy shakes and drinks. Easy capsules. And that gorgeous turmeric color we all love.

I am SUPER impressed! And not least because they made a pet food topper – CurcuminPro® UltaPet.

This is the only meal topper that offers the highest level of natural curcumin benefits in a BioSoluable™ food enhancer combined with TerraPro™ clay and superior joint supplements. Athena’s multi-action health additive includes TerraPro™, which is a rare earth mineral clay known as one of the best absorbents for aflatoxins. And aflatoxins are acutely toxic and carcinogenic in many animals, but especially dogs. CurcuminPro® UltaPet is an amazing source of the minerals silicon and calcium, which are necessary for joint health. Also, all of this amazingness is super tasty to dogs! Athena loves the powder.

This is a wonderful and convenient way for you to help your pet lives a healthy and awesome life. Here are key benefits:

• BioSoluble™ curcumin — all natural with whey protein isolate (WPI) quickly absorbed and assimilated

• Helps remove aflatoxins

• Supports heart, joint, brain and immune system health

• Natural pain relief and joint support

• High level of curcuminoids — each serving contains approximately 600mg of protein-curcumin complex Key ingredients: The topper is made from defatted beef liver powder and contains CPro whey protein isolate, TerraPro™ clay, MSM, glucosamine HCL, chondroitin sulfate, cetyl myristoleate, and bromelain.

Don’t forget to check out CurminPro here. We have used curcumin products in our house for years, and I’ve written about it too. I’m so impressed with a company that has so much science and data behind it, but also great-tasting, easy-to-use products. We have the jelly beans, of course, and we have the chocolates! Not to mention capsules and powders for yummy drinks and shakes. We have it all and I was bursting to share about it. I’d love to hear what products you’ve tried/will try.

*CurcuminPro® UltaPet is not meant for puppies!

Have you heard of CurcuminPro? Are you a total believer in curcumin? I know I am!
