Jason Lee:
Bahar you've always got some great stuff for us. What do you have this morning?

Bahar Takhtehchian:
So I don't know if you know this, but June is national headache month and with weekends and summer plans coming up there's nothing that can ruin a good time more than a terrible headache. And it's interesting Web MD recently did a survey that found that one of out of three respondents actually suffers from weekly headaches, yet 46 percent of these people choose to just tough it out despite their doctor's advice. So that's rough.

The good news however is that the makers of Excedrin actually have developed a suit of fast-acting headache relief products that really no matter what kind of headache you're suffering from whether it's tension headaches or migraines they give you fast specific treatments that way you can get along with your life and enjoy your summer and your summer plans. Really it's important to treat those headaches so you can have a quality of life that you really want.

For more information you can go to and that's where you'll find out about headaches and treatments.

Now I also wanted to mention in the summertime it's really important for you and your family to stay healthy. One healthy habit you should add to your everyday life is taking vitamins. People don't like to pop pills, they forget to do it.

The good news is that Zarbee's has these great vitamin drink mixes which essentially is an easy and delicious way for you to drink vitamins. These are made from handpicked wholesome ingredients.

SPF 30 every single day for your kids, for yourself.

It's very very important to protect yourself.
