Hot Hot Hot
A comforting cup of hot broth is nothing new. But now that research has uncovered bone broth’s benefits for joints, skin, and digestive health, it’s becoming a trendy choice for health-conscious consumers. We like Jarrow’s Beyond Bone Broth, which provides the incredible nutrition of homemade bone broth in a convenient powder. This savory drink mix supplies a concentrated range of vitamins, minerals, and compounds including bioactive type I and type II collagen peptides, cartilage chondroitin sulfate, calcium, marine minerals, and silicon. Just mix a heaping scoop with hot water and enjoy.
“Senior moments” (forgetting small things, such as where you left your car keys) is a phenomenon that tends to become more frequent as we age. Could avoiding these memory blips be as simple taking a daily supplement? Clinical research shows that silk protein hydrolysate, the key ingredient in Natrol Cognium, may improve memory and cognition in as little as four weeks. In studies, it was shown to work by increasing blood flow and glucose to the areas of the brain responsible for memory and cognition, while also protecting the brain from free-radical damage.
Seize the Daiya
You may be lactose intolerant, vegan, allergic, or simply living a healthy lifestyle, but don’t tell your taste buds that. They still crave a gooey grilled cheese or pizza dripping with molten mozzarella. Now you can tantalize (and trick) your taste buds with Daiya’s seven deliciously dairy-free new products-Slices, Cutting Board Collection Shreds, Salad Dressings, Pepperoni-Style Gluten-Free Pizza, Greek Yogurt, and Deluxe Cheeze Sauce. Seriously, you won’t be able to tell the difference, and many people (even hardcore dairy lovers) prefer Daiya cheese over the real thing. Plus, they’re soy- and gluten-free, and made with natural ingredients such as pea protein and coconut oil.

They’re great as an after-workout reward or guilt-free dessert. And you can feel good knowing you’re also surreptitiously supplementing with collagen, known to benefit skin and joints.
