1. Fair Trade Beauty

Treat age-related skincare concerns while using Fair Trade products. That’s the aim of Alaffia’s new line: Age Defying Body Scrub, Age Defying Serum, Age Defying Face Scrub, and Age Defying Mask. Designed to target common aging concerns, including loss of skin elasticity and dehydrated skin, these spa-style products contain an intriguing, detoxifying blend of superfoods and nutrients such as okra extract and jasmine stem cells enriched with mangosteen. Okra is a great source of vitamins A, K, and C, which are instrumental in collagen production—who knew? Everything is handcrafted and infused with essential oils and West African shea and coconut oils.

2. Natural Fibers

Yerba Prima Daily Fiber Formula Orange Flavor boasts a clean, crisp taste and ultra smooth texture. With so many fiber supplements on the market, this one, which was recently reformulated, attracts attention thanks to its great taste and blend of five soluble and insoluble fibers. For best results, take in the morning with 8 oz. of water or juice. This is a gluten-free, non-GMO formula.

3. A Calm Day

Achieve a blissful state of calm the natural way. Bluebonnet Simply Calm powder is a water-soluble mix ultra-concentrated in elemental magnesium (magnesium carbonate and citrate). This essential mineral helps ease stress, occasional sleeplessness, and tension. Magnesium can also help support bone and immune health, among other benefits. Choose from four flavors: Unflavored, Cherry, Orange Citrus, and Raspberry Lemon.

4. Setting a High Bar

Here’s the delicious way to get probiotics and protein into your diet—PROBAR Live. Available in four flavors (Almond Butter, Coconut Cashew, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, and Peanut Butter), these probiotic-enriched bars have 10 grams of plant-based protein per serving and no sugar. We love the blend of creamy nut butters, dates, and seeds. These bars are filling and work as an on-the-go breakfast or lunch. Refrigerate them for best results.
