1. Rich & Fudgy Almond Flour Brownies
Simple Mills founder Katlin Smith started following a gluten- and additive-free diet to alleviate years of aches and pains and fatigue. When she couldn’t find any baking mixes to suit her eating habits, she developed her own. Her line includes sprouted crackers, organic frostings, baking mixes, and Almond Flour Brownies, which just launched. These luscious chocolate brownies are made with almond flour, arrowroot, organic coconut sugar, organic coconut flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and sea salt. On a Paleo diet? Make this your go-to sweet treat.
2. Hello Glow
Nourish and exfoliate your skin with Desert Essence Body Scrubs. These spa-style formulas are infused with mineral-rich sea salts and sugar, a natural skin polisher. Choose from three scrubs: Hydrating Sugar (with jojoba, coconut, and chamomile), Nourishing Pink Himalayan Salt & Sugar (with jojoba and sunflower), and Detoxifying Sea Salt (with jojoba and sweet almond).
3. Super Healthy Soil
Ancient Nutrition Ancient Probiotics use soil-based organisms, known as SBOs, which are naturally resistant to the harsh environment of the upper digestive tract and stomach. Two key strains—Bacillus coagulans and Lactobacillus plantarum—are combined with triphala, fenugreek, ginger, and other Ayurvedic herbs known for their gut-healing properties. There are eight formulas to choose from, including Ultimate Once Daily, Skin, and Brain.
4. A Honey Like No Other
Flora Manuka Honey is UMF-certified and every jar is 100 percent traceable. (Not all brands of this New Zealand honey contain pure Manuka honey.) You can scan the code on the label to find out where your honey was made, its lab tests results, and its UMF rating. The UMF trademark (New Zealand’s Unique Manuka Factor Honey) guarantees the honey has been third-party tested to ensure it contains three signature compounds. Flora Manuka Honey is non-GMO and sourced from an eco-friendly Maori-owned beekeeping operation in New Zealand.
5. Powdered Mushroom Magic
Host Defense Mushroom Powders are activated, freeze-dried, certified organic mycelium, with a full spectrum of constituents. Best part: they can be added to your favorite beverages and foods. The line features seven blends (both single mushrooms and mushroom-herb combinations), including Cordyceps, Brain Energy (with lion’s mane, yerba mate, and eleuthero), and Stamets 7 Daily Immune Support (with reishi, maitake, chaga, and other mushrooms).
