1. Activate Weight Loss
Here’s a weight-loss supplement with real science behind it: Life Extension AMPK Metabolic Activator. It’s a combination of hesperidin, a citrus flavonoid, and ActivAMP G. pentaphyllum extract—two compounds that trigger AMPK, an enzyme that prompts the body to start burning unwanted fat, particularly around the abdomen. Studies have shown that increasing AMPK activity can encourage cells to stop storing fat and start burning it for energy.
2. Stomach Troubles?
Gas, bloating, cramping, upset stomach? If you can relate to these symptoms, there’s a new supplement to try: Terry Naturally Clinical Strength Peppermint Forté. The key ingredient is peppermint oil, which excels at easing occasional intestinal and digestive issues such as gas and bloating. This formula also contains caraway, cardamom, and coriander oils—remedies known to help relieve gas and bloating, as well as support bacterial balance and mucosal lining health in the intestines.
3. Love Your Liver
Focusing on liver function offers huge health benefits—from hormone balance to better energy to clearer skin. Enter Barlean’s Liver Detox + Repair, part of the company’s new Platinum line. This nutrient-dense formula features high-quality ingredients known to help the liver function at its peak, including milk thistle, dandelion, artichoke, and L-glutathione. You can use this product daily to support your liver’s natural detoxification and repair processes. It comes in a powder form (Tropical Twist flavor), and blends easily into water, juices, and smoothies.
4. A Gummy Chill Pill
Natural Vitality Calm Gummies are a tasty antidote to stress. These raspberry-and-lemon-flavored chews contain 83 mg (per gummy) of magnesium citrate, the most important mineral for relaxation and stress relief. During times of stress or heavy physical activity, the body often requires more magnesium. Keep these travel-friendly gummies on hand for those unavoidable tension-filled moments. Adults can take up to four gummies per day, and kids can take one per day.
5. Sensitive Skin Savors
Babo Botanicals Sensitive Skin Care Therapy is a line of nourishing products designed for dry, sensitive, or eczema-prone skin. There are four products in the line (from left): Sensitive Skin All Natural Healing Ointment; Sensitive Skin Fragrance Free Hydra Therapy Lotion; Sensitive Skin Fragrance Free Hydra Therapy Wash; and Sensitive Skin Dry Relief Hydrating Stick (not shown).
