1. The Optimal Omega
Did you know that omega-3s boost your microbiome diversity? Specifically, combining DHA and EPA (key fatty acids in omega-3s) with DPA (also a fatty acid) creates the optimal ratio for inner healing. Enter Enzymedica Aqua Biome, products featuring DHA, EPA, and DPA from wild- caught, sustainably sourced anchoveta. This is the first fish oil to earn the Clean Label Project’s Certification. There are five formulas: Classic Strength; Maximum Strength; Digestive Relief (with boswellia); Meriva Curcumin (fish oil plus curcumin);
and Sports Performance (with quercetin). The best part? When you buy a bottle, the company donates to the Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium to rebuild the Florida Keys reef system.
2. CBD for Cats & Dogs
Pets have the same endocannabinoid system as humans. This helps explain why many people are giving their pets CBD oil for arthritis and other health issues—and having great results. Smart Organics Hemp Pet CBD Oil features European-grown hemp, and it’s produced using a solvent-free, non-chemical, and eco-friendly CO extraction process. The formula is gluten-free, third-party tested, and non-GMO for maximum potency and efficacy.
3. Adaptogen All-Star
Adaptogens are a class of herbs that help bring the body back into balance, with benefits such as stress reduction, energy, immune health, and improved mood. Paradise Herbs Imperial Adaptogen is a blend of these prized herbs, including eleuthero, rhodiola, reishi, ashwagandha, cordyceps, and holy basil. This formula incorporates the plants’ full profile of naturally occurring constituents, and it’s extracted without toxic solvents.
4. Go a Little Nutty
It’s time for a new nut butter experience. Ellyndale Nutty Infusions start with fresh almonds and cashews, which are carefully roasted for the perfect flavor. The nuts are ground in small batches without any oils, sweeteners, or preservatives. In addition to Roasted Almond Butter and Roasted Cashew Butter, the line features three inspired flavors: Ginger Wasabi Cashew Butter, Mango-Chili Cashew Butter, and Salted Caramel Cashew Butter.

5. Seriously Good Iced Coffee
Hot summer days and iced coffee are a perfect match. We’re in love with the new line of iced lattes and coffees from Chameleon Cold-Brew. They’re super smooth, consciously crafted, and made with organic beans. Pick from four on-the-go cans: Original Latte; Cinnamon Dolce Latte (our favorite); Black Coffee; and Churro Coffee. The lattes are coffee-forward with a touch of sugar and organic whole milk. A sweet treat for any day of the year!
