1. Pine Away
Interesting fact: All pine trees produce tiny cones filled with a powdery yellow dust—and that dust may be as good as gold for enhancing your health. Bio Nutrition Pine Pollen can help you reap the benefits of this superfood, which has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries to boost libido, amplify energy, and promote a hearty immune system. You’ll find this formula easy to absorb because it contains “cracked cell wall broken” pine pollen (a technical but important detail when it comes to pine pollen supplements).
2. Soup’s On!
Bonafide Provisions Organic Soups with Bone Broth are a true standout in the sea of store-bought soups. They come in frozen packets, so each one tastes like a freshly cooked batch of soup. And they couldn’t be any cleaner or healthier—organic, gluten-free, Paleo, and made with non-GMO ingredients. The real star here is organic bone broth, rich in nourishing protein, amino acids, and collagen. Pick from six varieties, including Creamy Mushroom Soup with Bone Broth, Broccoli Cheddar Soup with Bone Broth (our favorite), and Chicken Vegetable Soup with Bone Broth.
3. Come Clean
You might know Schmidt’s for their plant-powered deodorants (featuring amazing scents, we might add!). Now, the company is delving deeper into the personal care space with natural toothpastes, soaps, and body washes. Two of the newest products: Jasmine Tea Plant-Based Body Wash and Cedarwood + Juniper Plant-Based Body Wash. These argan oil-infused cleansers are enhanced with nori and bladderwrack extracts, plus ocean-sourced algae for healthier skin. Just like the deodorants, the body washes smell terrific, thanks to pure essential oils. There’s no sulfate, PEG, artificial fragrance, or dyes.
4. Simple & Sweet Treats
We’re always on the hunt for tasty protein bars. Our new favorite: Garden of Life GōL Bars. Part of what makes these special are their simple, whole-food ingredients—milk protein, dates, nuts, and blueberries. Plus, they are Non-GMO Project Verified, Certified Organic, and Certified Gluten-Free. Choose from four flavors: Chocolate Coconut, Blueberry, Chocolate Sea Salt, and Maple Sea Salt.
5. Land of Apples & Honey
We love the seemingly endless health applications of apple cider vinegar, from heartburn and acne to weight loss and detox. Wedderspoon is kicking things up a notch now with Apple Cider Vinegar with Manuka Honey. Yes, the two superfoods have come together in one tangy-tart-slightly-sweet elixir. It’s unpasteurized, unfiltered, and crafted with organic apples (featuring the all-important “mother”) and Manuka honey from New Zealand. Try it in detox drinks, salad dressings, and dishes where you might add vinegar.
