1. Package Deal
The philosophy behind Plant Fusion is a simple but powerful one: a fusion of exceptional vegan ingredients married with amazing tastes. They have revamped their formulas and packaging to complement their mission. Our favorites: Complete Protein, featuring artichoke, algae, and pea proteins and natural sweeteners like monk fruit; Complete Lean, which boasts Ecolean, a protein that has been shown to curb hunger 35% more than whey; and Complete Meal (formerly Phood), packed with sprouted grain and pea proteins, 21 whole-food-sourced vitamins and minerals, green foods, plant-based essential fatty acids, and more.
2. On Everyone’s Lips
Doctor Lip Bang’s Lip Freak Tinted Lip Balms are not your ordinary lip conditioners. That’s thanks to a unique buzzing sensation that kicks in once the balms are applied. We love that they’re packed with natural, nourishing ingredients, including essential oils, sweet almond oil, and beeswax, and come in four richly pigmented shades: Pinky Swear, Sweet Villain, Nude Attitude, and Bleeding Heart. It’s time to get your buzz on!
3. The Power Apple
Looking for a natural way to lose weight? Apple cider vinegar and cayenne have
been used for years to promote a healthy metabolism. Dr. Mercola combines the two in Fermented Apple Cider Vinegar and Cayenne, which is designed to help you feel full and less likely to eat large amounts of food when taken before meals. It may also aid in curbing appetite and helping with insulin sensitivity after a high-carb meal. Both ingredients are organic, and the apple cider is fermented for easier absorption.
4. You Won’t Miss the Moo
Creamy, smooth, and rich, Daiya Non-Dairy Frozen Desserts come in four varieties and feature premium ingredients such as semisweet chocolate, Fair Trade dark chocolate, real vanilla extract, and 100% Arabica coffee. Trust us: these decadent treats are a must-try—even if you normally go for regular ice cream. Pick from Espresso Coffee, Chocolate Fudge Crunch, Classic Vanilla Bean, and, our favorite, Sea Salt Caramel Swirl.
5. Gutsy Kids
Arthur Andrew Medical has introduced its first probiotic for youngsters: Syntol Kids Daily Probiotics. A combination of probiotics, prebiotics, and vitamins C and D, these berry-flavored sachets help strengthen immune, gut, and digestive health. They dissolve instantly and are sugar-free (sweetened with erythritol and xylitol). Use daily to help ease kids’ digestive issues, irregularity, and cold and flu prevention.
