A Sweet Deal
Bake and sweeten your favorite foods and drinks just as you would with traditional sugar‚ but without all of the calories or glycemic impact. Ellyndale Naturals Sugarless Sugar tastes-and bakes-just like sugar. Made with a blend of stevia leaf (BetterStevia), erythritol, and inulin, this sweetener can be used confidently in any recipe as a one-to-one sugar replacement-just use an equal amount to substitute for the usual sweet stuff. And sprinkle away in coffee, fruit, yogurt, cereal, and on anything else that you want to sweeten naturally. There are zero grams of sugar and just 5 calories per teaspoon.
Why are yeast flakes such a perfect health food? They add texture, flavor (they’re amazing on popcorn!), and loads of nutrition to almost any food. Bluebonnet’s Super Earth Brewer’s Yeast Flakes are a natural, vegan source of high-quality protein with all of the essential amino acids-plus fiber, B vitamins, and trace minerals. And these flakes are cultivated on certified non-GMO sugar beet molasses, giving them a nonbitter, savory flavor-unlike typical grain-derived brewer’s yeast that tends to have a bitter taste. They just may become your next healthy addiction!
Plant Protein Power
Non-GMO and made in a facility that uses sustainable solar energy, VegiDay Bars and Protein Powders are good for you and the planet. The organic vegan snack bars contain raw, whole-food ingredients, and use only natural flavors and sweeteners. Choose from Caramel Apple, Coconut Mango, Coconut Acai, and Breakfast Espresso flavors. Also raw and organic, the vegan protein powders are made with a blend of pea, rice, chia, pumpkin, quinoa, spirulina, and chlorella. Pick from four flavors: Berrylicious, French Vanilla, Decadent Chocolate, and Unflavored Both the bars and the powders are soy- and gluten-free too.
Hit the Bull’s-Eye
Developed based on the rise in specific bacterial infections, Vibrant Health BullsEye helps to guard against infection and restore healthy bacterial balance. Harnessing the power of plant extracts such as clove, rosemary, thyme, and eucalyptus, this formula targets bugs with an arsenal of concentrated herbal extracts, including flavonoids, tannins, and alkaloids. Take it with you when you travel, such as on an airplane or camping trip, or use it as an everyday way to shore up your defenses.
Activate Internal Cleansing
Some charcoal supplements are made by burning wood, bamboo, or peat moss. But Nature’s Answer Coconutz Activated Coconut Charcoal uses only tropical coconut husks that are steam-activated (not burned) to enhance their absorptive powers. The result is a superfine charcoal powder that works to detoxify the body, improve digestion, and reduce gas. DGL licorice is added to enhance the product’s digestive benefits.
