And they are ideal as on-the-go snacks.
A healthy microbiome begins in the mouth, which is why Enzymedica developed Digest Gold Smiles. This no-sugar-added mint contains 12 billion cells of the probiotic HK Lactobacillus plantarum L-137. Backed by years of research, HK L-137 helps promote good oral bacteria, supports gum health, and encourages hyaluronic acid production for reduced “pocket depth.”
To promote healthy levels of dopamine (the “feel-good” neurotransmitter), Life Extension Dopamine Advantage combines phellodendron tree bark and vitamin B12 as adenosylcobalamin. Research shows these nutrients support the brain’s levels of dopamine to help maintain overall cognitive health, contributing to a positive mood and optimal focus.

The active ingredients include reishi mushroom, passion flower, ashwagandha, lavender, and hops. It’s also melatonin-free.
