1. Sour Stomach SOS
We’ve all been there, especially during the holidays: You eat too much and then pay for it later with an upset stomach, heartburn, and/or acid indigestion. Get relief in minutes with Country Life Acid Rescue. We’ve tried this out, and it really works fast to settle digestive woes. This is a clean formula made with calcium carbonate—think of it as a natural alternative to Tums or Rolaids. There’s no talc, corn starch, sugar, or GMOs. Choose from Berry or Mint flavor.
2. A Mood Booster with Mettle
KAL Lithium Orotate is a secret weapon in the battle with depression. This safe form of lithium differs from prescription lithium (lithium carbonate and lithium citrate)—most notably, the dose is considerably less than the drug. While there isn’t much research on lithium orotate, anecdotal reports show that it may help boost mood, alleviate stress, and enhance memory and energy. This advanced formula features ActivMelt Instant Dissolve technology for fast uptake. The micro tablets come in Lemon Lime flavor.
3. Antiviral Herbs to the Rescue
There’s never a good time to get sick, but it seems especially unwelcome during the busy holiday season. Protect yourself against viruses, alleviate stress, and replenish your Qi (life force) with Redd Remedies IMMUNE Vrl Pro. Adaptogenic and immune-supportive herbs—astragalus, eleuthero, elderberry, ginger, and licorice—help balance your body, including healthy respiratory function. Every batch of this non-GMO formula undergoes third-party testing.
4. Soap (& Scrub) Up
Ready for a treat? Pacha Soap Whipped Soap + Scrub is a dreamy blend of cleansing coconut oil; skin-smoothing pumice; exfoliating organic, fair trade sugar; and revitalizing essential oils. Use it daily as a soap/body wash and foot and body scrub. Bonus: Pacha Soap purchases help fuel clean-water initiatives, small-scale soap shops, and other sustainable ventures in developing countries. Choose from a variety of scents, including Vanilla Almond and Coconut Papaya.
5. Sweet as Honey
Love honey and maple syrup but not the calories and high sugar content? Here’s a sweet find: Pyure Sugar Free Organic Honey Alternative and Sugar Free Organic Maple Flavored Syrup are made with stevia, erythritol, and tapioca fiber—and they taste remarkably like real honey and maple syrup with a fraction of the calories and no sugar. Each is a source of gut-friendly prebiotics. Add the honey to tea or spread on toast. Drizzle the maple syrup over oatmeal, waffles, and pancakes.
