It is the time of year where we all want to do better. We want to put down the electronics and spend more time with the kids. We want to get out and get more exercise and we want to purge the foods we eat and introduce new, healthier options. I am all for making changes to enhance your life in the beginning of a new year. But, let’s face it, sometimes the new recipes, kale smoothies and onslaught of fruit does not sit well in the stomach. So when you are in the store picking up all of the essentials that will replace the mass emptying of the cabinets of things that are not good for you, don’t forget the soothing stomach relief of Pepto Bismol.
As a mom and a woman who likes to try new things, I always have a supply of Pepto on hand. I remember my mom and grandmother always having it in home too. No wonder, of course, we all know it works. The 5 Symptom relief formula for heartburn, indigestion, nausea, upset stomach and diarrhea has withstood the test of time and we all know that when we reach for it, we will get relief.
I prefer the liquid but there are now chewable tablets on the market which are perfect for on the go as well. Plus, if you like peppermint, there are now Pepto-Bismol InstaCool Peppermint Flavored Chewable Tablets that can sooth you in no time at all.
Now listen, I have looked at some of the recipes I want to try for the new year. They are heavy on fruits, vegetables and grains. I want to be full in a healthier way than downing a whole bag of cookies. But with the experimentation process comes things that won’t agree with me. I do suffer heartburn on occasion and my stomach has never digested things well. So, as with any new dietary updates, I like to know that if I have an episode with a new food, I can sooth my insides and get back to life with ease. Pepto has offered that to me for years!
So when you are in the veggie aisle, the fruit aisle and looking at recipes that may look a little foreign to your system, have Pepto on hand to counteract anything that might throw your system for a loop. It has been a trusted product in homes for decades for a reason!
