Why I Launched Checkable

Hi, Patty Post here, Checkable's founder and CEO. Ok, so I'm not the healthiest person on the planet. Are you? If yes, you rock (insert sarcasm). Kidding. I fall short of my health goals at times because I like food, I'm busy, and sometimes I don't have time to get a sweat in. But I want to be healthy, and I want to feel better today than yesterday.


When I started researching how I could achieve this, I found supplements. I wanted high-quality American supplements, and that's what I got. Ashwagandha, collagen, apple cider vinegar, melatonin, and UTI prevention supplements. I chose these five supplements that would optimize any women's health AND ones she could give to her family. Here they are, in no particular order.

1. UTI Prevention: Urinary Tract Balance

If you know, you know. UTIs are the worst, and if I can offer an all-natural supplement for women to prevent a UTI, I'm on it. I use it, and I haven't gotten one since taking it. Urinary Tract Balance provides urinary tract and bladder health support in one powerful dose. 

2. Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies

I used to drink Bragg's Apple cider vinegar every morning to help digestion. I'd put it in my water but had to quit the habit when I was diagnosed with Laryngopharyngeal acid reflux. The solution was the gummies. It doesn't have the same harsh effects going down. I actually like the taste. I eat two of them in the afternoon for a little snack to cut the afternoon's sweet/salty craving.

3. Collagen with 5 Parts Collagen: Glow & Grow Beauty

Who doesn't want that pleasant plumpness back in their face? If you answered no, you're lying, or you're too young to be reading this. Collagen helps you look and feel your best while improving the health of skin, bones, muscles, nails, hair, joints, weight, and gut. Yup, all of that in one supplement. 

4. Melatonin Sleep Gummy: Sleep Easy

The melatonin gummy at a 1% dose is perfect for me. I take it when I start my nighttime routine, and by the time I slip into bed to read my book, I get 7-10 pages in, and I'm out like a light. The low dose of melatonin combined with passion flowers and vitamin B6 helps you not to have a hangover feeling In the morning. Take more if you need it; many of the pill forms are 5-10 mg per pill.

5. Ashwagandha: Stress Less

You probably have no clue what this is, but this ancient root has been used for centuries as an herbal alternative to decrease stress & anxiety, increase energy, improve brain function and focus, and be an overall mood booster. My teenage boys were actually taking it to help build muscle mass. I researched the supplement and found the many benefits were accurate, including reducing cortisol and increasing testosterone. Another great effect is the energy boost I get each time I take it. I even open the capsules and pour them directly into my smoothies.

My why behind Checkable is to help you, me, and our families optimize our health with quality supplements that are US-made and with no added fillers. I hope you love them as much as I do.
