Drink Your Detox
When it comes to natural detoxification and overall liver health, it’s hard to beatLiverCare by Himalaya Herbal Healthcare. Now this award-winning formula is available as LiverCare Powder, in single-use packets. Why is this so great? First off, the gluten-free powder is the same clinically studied blend used in the original capsules. And second, the powder is versatile-add it to smoothies, mix it into water or juice, or try cooking with it (no-bake cookie bars and balls are a good way to go). It also doubles as a natural hangover remedy for those mornings when you need a little extra help.
Dive Into Magnesium
Most forms of magnesium come from rocks such as limestone. But you can also get magnesium and other minerals from plant sources. In particular, minerals extracted from marine vegetation are thought to be easier for the body to absorb. Enter Plant Based Magnesium from Nature’s Answer. The form of magnesium used is called Aquamin Red Algae Seawater, and it’s harvested just off the coast of Iceland. This also contains Aquamin’s trace minerals, which help improve how the body takes in and uses magnesium.
White Smile Secret
If we told you that charcoal made from coconut shells is one of the best natural teeth whiteners around, would you believe it? Maybe not. But once you try My Magic Mud Whitening Toothpaste, you’ll be convinced. The results are worth the toothpaste’s initially off-putting black color and messy quality. This stuff really works! Available in Peppermint, Wintergreen, and Cinnamon Clove, the toothpastes also boast lots of other gum- and teeth-friendly ingredients, including bentonite clay, and coconut and tea tree oils.
Mood, Stress, & Sleep Rx
Depression, stress, and sleepless nights-it’s a cluster of health issues that often go together. That’s one reason why Quality of Life developed Positelle, a smart combination of nutrients that addresses all three conditions. The star ingredient is Venetron, a patented extract of the herb Apocynum venetum, clinically shown to support a positive mood. You’ll also find rhodiola, lavender oil, vitamin D3, and folate, which work synergistically with Venetron to promote restful sleep and ease depression and stress.
You’ll Flip for These Veggie Burgers
We recently discovered (and quickly fell in love with) No Bull Burger The Gourmet Veggie Burgers. There’s no meat (or soy), but that won’t stop you from craving one of these juicy burgers. A blend of organic ingredients, including lentils, barley, brown rice, and spices, gives these patties a gourmet-style flavor comparable to any meat burger. Choose from four varieties: Original, Sun-Dried Tomato & Spinach, Savory Mushroom & Roasted Garlic, and Mama Mia Spicy Italian. All of them are vegetarian, but a few are also vegan and gluten-free.
