Herbal Cocktail

Cranberry extract is great for maintaining urinary tract health. But sometimes you need a stronger ally against bladder infections and bloating. Enter Cran • Essence from Flora. This tangy liquid gets its power from a blend of nine herbs known for their diuretic, cleansing, and antimicrobial actions: juniper berries, uva ursi, parsley seed, calendula, heather, knotgrass, rupturewort, yarrow, and cranberry fruit. You can take this daily for kidney and urinary tract health-mix 2 Tbs. in a glass of water and drink twice daily. Cheers to your health!

Now You're Jammin'

Paradise Herbs Vitality Nectar is a tasty jam and health elixir rolled into one. Plus it enhances energy. And it tastes great in smoothies. Needless to say, we can find endless good reasons to enjoy this nutrient-packed spread. Vitality Nectar is a version of chyawanprash, a honey-based jam used in Ayurveda for overall health. But the addition of body-balancing herbs-amla, ashwagandha, and Indian long pepper-give this one "super-charged" status. It's made with wild-crafted and organic ingredients in a base of clarified butter and raw honey. Try it on your morning toast.

Real Relief for Sinus Troubles

It can be hard to find lasting relief from sinus pain, congestion, and headaches. Even antibiotics and allergy medications often fail to provide relief. It's time to try a natural approach: Xlear XlearMax Sinus Spray is designed to help ease-and in many cases resolve-sinus inflammation. The main ingredient in the spray is capsicum, which works by increasing blood flow to the nose and sinuses, thereby easing inflammation and congestion. Also key to this formula is xylitol-a natural sugar that helps prevent bacteria from adhering to mucous membranes in the sinuses.

Go Against the Grain with Cassava

Step aside, almond flour. The hot new grain-free flour is cassava, and no one does it better than Otto's 100% Natural Cassava Flour. Made from yucca, a root vegetable, cassava flour bears a striking resemblance to wheat flour in terms of taste and texture. It can be used as a 1:1 substitute in many recipes, including cake, cookie, brownie, pancake, and crepe recipes. This is a pantry must if you are following a gluten- or grain-free diet. Why Otto's? The husband-and-wife couple who started the company (both had intolerances and sensitivities to grains) named it after their son, Otto.
