WelliBox February 2015

Can I just start off by saying how much I dislike that useless extra r in February???  Seriously no one says the word or pronounces it with it so we should just take a vote and have it changed.

Anyways…WelliBox is a Canadian box focusing on healthy options.  It sends you 5-10 samples per month and you can choose your category from womens, mens, 50+, or performance.  Boxes are $10 per month, less with longer plans,  and you are promised $25 worth of products.  Since I’m trying to get healthier and lose some weight I thought it would be a good idea to get a box that might help me out.

I ordered the womens box and it arrived after only a 5 day shipping period. Love things that come from my own country!  Oddly there is no info card or letter telling me what I received or how to use it.  Also there is no place on the website to look that up either, so that’s a bit of a downer.  I’m not sure if that is normal or if this was just an oversight but we’ll see next month. On to the products.

Garden of Life Raw Protein Vanilla Whisper 24g-$2.27

This is a single serving, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, gmo free, and organic brown rice protein.  I am glad this is vanilla flavored because I strongly dislike the taste of protein powders.  I will toss this into my next smoothie because I’m pretty sure it will be icky just mixed in water as they say to do.

Biovita Therapeutic Herbal Tea Chamomile-3 Pack $0.91

I drink tea all the time and love chamomile so this is great.  It helps with digestion, as does all chamomile tea, so I usually have a cup just before bed.

Wild Rose Black Currant Dietary Supplement

I cannot find this online anywhere.  The website on the bottle doesn’t take me to a useful page at all.  Really wishing for that info card right now. Black currant oil is an essential fatty acid used to for anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, and anti-viral purposes.  It is supposed to help block the flu, slow aging, and relieve arthritis symptoms.

Biocore Food Science CoreOmega Capsules

You are supposed to take 3 capsules a day.  Considering these expire in March of this year that’s the only way you could finish this bottle.  Omega-3 is useful for maintaining mental health and digestive health.

Biocore Food Science CoreVitamin D2 Capsules

I already take a vitamin D but this one is made from mushroom powder.  This one also expires in March so I guess I need to switch and use this one first.

Emergen-C Acai Berry Vitamin C Effervescent Powder Sample

I actually have this brand and product but in pill form so I’m interested to try it as a drinkable source.

I could not find a pricing on most of these products.  While I was able to locate manufacturer’s websites they just gave information and not items for sale.  When I signed up for this box I was hoping for more items like the protein and vitamin packets then the supplements but I’m sure that they will find all kinds of things in the coming months that I’ve never tried to send me.  For the price I paid for the box I feel like I got a good array of products.  I can’t say if the value is for sure the $25 they promised but I know vitamins are never cheap so it’s probably close.
