Swiss Natural is a Canadian company, and their mission is to produce safe and efficacious products that are scientifically formulated from natural sources. Swiss Natural products are developed by an expert team of Biochemists, Chemists, Formulation Scientist, Nutritionists and a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine.  Each product is researched, using the most up-to-date clinical data available, to ensure the product delivers on its health promise.

They are passionate about the health benefits that nature can deliver and they realize that they have a responsibility to take care of our environment to enjoy the gifts that nature provides well into the future. Most recently, they have:

  • Installed shrink bundling equipment on all packaging lines that use 100% recyclable low density polyethylene film.  This reduces the amount of cardboard used in our operation by 108,000 lbs annually.
  • Switched bottles to HDPE, a 100% recyclable material endorsed in all community Blue Box programs.
  • Recycle 87,000 lbs of paper, corrugate and plastic waste annually.

Swiss Natural Solutions EnergyI have used Swiss Natural products quite a bit, and most recently I had the chance to try out some products that I haven’t used before. Solutions® Energy With Green Tea, Vitamin B12 & Guarana was one that I was very interested in trying. Like many Moms, I am always tired!

Product Description

Fatigue occurs due to poor nutrition, lack of sleep, lack of exercise, or undue stress. Solutions® Energy can help combat fatigue while metabolizing foods to help build the supply of energy. Siberian Ginseng is traditionally used as an adaptogenic herb to energize the body, Vitamin B12 helps metabolize food for use in energy production, and Guarana positively stimulates the central nervous system, heart and muscles.Swiss Natural Solutions Sleep

I found that this vitamin did seem to keep more a little more awake and alert during the day, which was helpful especially on the days when I worked the night shift and still have to take care of kids and get things done around the house.

Since I work in someone else’s home overnight, I need to be ready to react if there is a problem through the night. I can sleep, but I would never take a supplement to help me sleep more soundly, so I did not try the Solutions Sleep. My husband did use it several times though.

Swiss Natural Total One WomanSolutions® Sleep with Passionflower, Valerian & Lemon Balm is intended to help people get the rest they need to function better throughout the day. Mike tried it and said that he felt more rested after using it. I think I will give it a try the next time I have several days off in a row. I could definitely use some rest!

Total One® Women Timed Release is formulated for the optimal health of women under age 50 with 36 vitamins, minerals and supplements including:

  • Cranberry: Helps decrease the incidence of UTI by preventing the adherence of bacteria to the wall of the urinary tract
  • B Complex vitamin:  Helps the body metabolize carbohydrates, fats, and proteins which aids in energy production
  • Iron: Helps deliver oxygen to tissue.  Iron is lost during the menstrual cycle and needs to be replaced at a higher quantity in women at this stage. swiss natural microlactin


Microlactin™ 500mg Capsule Box  – Helps relieve joint pain and stiffness due to osteoarthritis.

swiss natural bend ezBendEZ with Arnica, Glucosamine & MSM Gel

Provides soothing relief from sore muscles and joints and helps to minimize bruising. It’s the perfect add-on to traditional glucosamine supplements. Oral glucosamine products can take up to 4 weeks for the user to start feeling the benefits to their joints. By using a topical product in conjunction with an oral supplement user will begin to feel pain and discomfort dissipate right away.

Microlactin and BendEZ are great for people with arthritis and joint problems. My husband had knee surgery several years ago and it still acts up sometimes so these are great supplements for him. My father has three different kinds of arthritis, so I shared these items with him as well.
