- LUO HUAN GO: MONK FRUIT SWEETENER more info here
“In remote mountain highlands of Asia, a group of Buddhist monks called the Luohan achieved enlightenment and ascension through meditation and pure living. In this primeval forest, the monks discovered a rare superfood prized for its sweetness and its ability to raise chi, or life energy.”
2. GARDEN OF LIFE MULTIVITAMIN FOR WOMEN
Whole Foods based multi, with vitamins, iron, folate (no fake folic acid!), probiotics & more. Garden of life makes products that are USDA Organic and Non-GMO Project verified. They are all about real, whole and plant-based foods.
What I love about this multi is that it is backed by consumer labs – meaning it is a supplement that actually contains what it claims to on its label! Since it is whole foods based you can take it on an empty stomach or with food, your choice. I only take 1/4 the recommend dose because I feel my diet is full of fruits and veggies. I supplement with this because even with a healthy diet it is smart to fill in those nutritional gaps! Plus, they add in just the right amount of immune and gut support.
GARDEN OF LIFE’S MULTI FOR MEN:
FOR MEN 50+:
FOR WOMEN 50+
3. TRUVANI’S ASHWAGANDHA
I like to think of adaptogens as nature’s pharmaceuticals. Stress can cause physical changes in the body, and many of them harm our neurological, endocrine, and immune systems. With the magic of their stimulant properties, adaptogens like ashwagandha neutralize those harmful effects. I have been searching for an organic ashwagandha supplement with organic black pepper powder that comes in a tablet form for years, well before this amazing ayurvedic herb was all the hype! Truvani is the true deal. The black pepper is key for optimal absorption and you can also blend the tablets in your smoothies or hot drinks if you prefer. Feeling the effects of that stress?
4. CALM MAGNESIUM GLYCINATE & LEMON BALM
I alternate between Vital Protein’s Marine Collagen and Collagen Peptides Powder. If your goal is hair health, go with the Marine Collagen as it is the one that has been shown to be the most effective on hair health in multiple studies. When it comes to benefiting your connective tissue, both of these products get the most valuable player award. I alternate between both because the peptides have more protein per serving – so I will add it to my lunch beverage if my meal needs a lil’ protein boost.
