We all have those daily staples we can't go a day without using right?

I wanted to share with you my top 5 wellness products that I use EVERY day to help my mind stay sharp and just to stay healthy overall!

All of these products have helped me 

1. Activated Charcoal- Capsules + Toothpaste
This has been an ABSOLUTE life saver for me! Activated charcoal is known as a more trendy product these days I feel. A lot of people use activated charcoal in their toothpaste or face masks, which obviously why wouldn't you?

I remember years ago when I worked in a vets office, they would use activated charcoal for pets who may have eaten something toxic. Back then, I don't think it was as widely used as it is today, so I really had no idea about all the amazing benefits of activated charcoal.

As someone who has many many food allergies, I use activated charcoal to combat my allergies rather than taking a Benedryl or an Allegra. 

Some more benefits of activated charcoal include:

  • Gas reduction: Some studies report that activated charcoal may help reduce gas production following a gas-producing meal. It may also help improve the odor of gas.
  • Teeth whitening: Using activated charcoal to brush your teeth is anecdotally said to whiten them. It's said to do so by adsorbing plaque and other teeth-staining compounds. 
  • Hangover prevention: Activated charcoal is sometimes used as a hangover cure. While consuming it with alcohol may reduce blood alcohol levels, its effects on hangovers haven't been studied.
  • Skin treatment: Applying this charcoal to the skin is touted as an effective treatment for acne.

Another go to staple in my house is-

2. Lions Mane + Medicinal Mushrooms

I know you're probably thinking... what in the world. MUSHROOMS!?

Hear me out. I wasn't a fan of mushrooms either but you'd be surprised at how JAM PACKED they are with health benefits!

Lion’s mane mushrooms not only supports memory and concentration but also supports cognitive function and the nervous system. 

You can take it in capsule form, or try this awesome lions mane elixir by Four Sigmatic.

I'd definitely recommend Four Sigmatic medicinal mushroom elixirs to anyone. I've tried several of them and they're all SO good! I'm not a huge coffee drinker, so by drinking mushroom coffee, I get the extra boost of caffeine, plus all the other health benefits.

NUMBER  THREE!! 

Actually I'm tying 2 into one here.. wait.. I've been doing that all along haven't I?

Ooops! Well I guess you're getting double the information than you bargained for lol!

3. Barlean’s Seriously Delicious Omega-3 Flax Oil, Strawberry Banana Smoothie, + Barlean’s Seriously Delicious Omega-3 Fish Oil, Lemon Crème

Even in the name it says seriously delicious, this stuff is legit! Honestly, you'll want to drink the whole bottle!


Omega-3s are essential fatty acids that cannot be produced by the body, so we need to get them from foods or supplements.


About Flax Seed Oil
Flax is a plant with seeds filled with flaxseed oil, which contains more than twice as much omega-3 oil as fish oils. Several studies have validated the use of essential fatty acids, such as omega-3s in fish and flaxseed oils, in relieving joint discomfort and mobility. Fatty acids can also help support healthy bone density, energy endurance, a healthy cardiovascular system, and cholesterol levels. There is also evidence to suggest that flaxseed oil can promote IQ, improve behavior, and enhance focus in children.

4. Spirulina

 

spirulina

Spirulina is an organism that grows in both fresh and salt water.

It is a type of cyanobacteria, which is a family of single-celled microbes that are often referred to as blue-green algae.

It also has a ton of health benefits such as:

-It's a powerful antioxidant and has anti-inflammatory properties

-It can lower “bad” LDL and triglyceride levels

-It may have anti-cancer properties

-It improves symptoms of allergic rhinitis

(Allergic rhinitis is characterized by inflammation in your nasal passageways)

-It may aid blood sugar control

The Bottom Line

It may improve your levels of blood lipids, suppress oxidation, reduce blood pressure and lower blood sugar.

While more research is needed before any strong claims can be made, spirulina may be one of the few superfoods worthy of the title.


Finally number FIVE! 
Last but not least,

5. Adrenal Health Supplement!
I can't tell you enough good things about taking an adrenal health supplement!

I used to deal with some pretty bad anxiety, stress, fatigue, brain fog, you name it.

I found out about adrenal glands and about how they our stress levels, and decided to do some research on adrenal fatigue then stumbled upon an adrenal health supplement that has literally changed my life. 
I can finally control my stress, and anxiety, I have mental clarity, and I have a clean energy throughout the day.


So that's about it for the 5 products I use on a daily basis! I've noticed such a huge difference in my overall well being and I think that's such an important aspect when it comes to self care. It's not all bath bombs and face masks. We really need to take care of our bodies and our selves first in order to function as the best versions of ourselves.
