1. Wake Up and Smell the Keto Coffee
Know Brainer makes it easy to fuel up on fat (necessary for activating ketosis) while enjoying your morning cup of Joe, with Ketogenic Creamers. Rich, creamy, and satisfying, these grab-n-go packs are a game changer for coffee lovers. They feature a blend of focus-enhancing MCT oil from coconut, grass-fed butter, ghee to curb cravings, and adaptogenic herbs (turmeric and ashwagandha) to stave off stress. They are sugar-, gluten-, dairy-, and GMO-free too. Flavors include Hazelnut, Mocha, Vanilla Bean, French Vanilla, and Original. The creamers are available in dairy and nondairy versions.
2. Eye Opener
Protect your eyes from diseases such as macular degeneration—the leading cause of vision loss—with the help of Bluebonnet Targeted Choice EyeCare AREDS 2 + Blue. This whole food-based formula contains clinically studied nutrients recommended by the National Eye Institute and used in the well-known AREDS 2 study, including vitamins C and E, zinc, lutein, and zeaxanthin. It also features hyaluronic acid for its moisturizing properties and superfruits (e.g., bilberry and wild blueberry) to combat excessive blue light/LED exposure.

They’re made with whole foods, and have no more than 2 grams of sugar per serving. There’s zero gluten, gelatin, dairy, soy, high fructose corn syrup, glucose, sugar alcohols, or artificial sweeteners—just real food you can taste.
4. Lip Treats
Give your lips a soft, dewy look with MyChelle Dermaceuticals Lip Hints. Available in four shades (Berry, Nude, Plum, and Sheer), these rich, lightly tinted balms feature a moisturizing blend of shea butter and coconut, Kalahari melon, and meadowfoam oils—they’re a must for any makeup bag.
