ARIIX  Rejuveniix

ARIIX Rejuveniix

ARIIX's Rejuveniix is targeted to be a natural energy and alertness booster. We like that Rejuveniix is a food-based supplement, combining a unique blend of superfruit extracts from the acai berry, mangosteen, lycium berry, Hawaiian noni fruit and sea buckthorn. This product also includes the maqui berry which contains high level of the class of antioxidants known as anthrocyanins, which helps to reduce the harmful effects of oxidative stress by intercepting the chain reaction of free radical damage, which subsequently, boosts immune function.  This product also contains kava kava, L-theanine, and caffeine from green coffee bean extract. We typically don't suggest a supplement with added caffeine as many people have to much caffeine in their diets as is. The l-theanine is a great amino acid that reduces anxiety and decreases brain inflammation by binding to and inhibiting glutamate receptors. Ariix is a multi-level marketing company, which we typically don't often promote, however the product is a good one. When used in moderation (because of the added caffeine) this is a safe and effective way to stay awake and energized and certainly beats out a daily sugar or Starbucks habit!

Aquafina

Aquafina

Aquafina is purified, reverse osmosis water. It originates from public water sources and is then purified through a rigorous, seven step purification process called Hyrdo-7. This process removes things like chloride, salts and other substances that can affect water's taste. Mineral water is always leaps and bounds better, cleaner and healthier but Aquafina's process is good. We are never thrilled with the plastic component of bottled water because of the environmental havoc it wreaks and because who knows how long those plastic bottles might have sat on a truck or in the sun and how much leaching occurred.

Annie's Goddess Dressing

Annie's Goddess Dressing

When we don't have time to make our own dressing, this is one of our go-tos. Annie's Goddess dressing is made from tahini (sesame paste) so it gives you that rich, creamy consistency without the dairy. We love the lemon juice, cider vinegar, sea salt and herbs in this product but are a bit leary of the oil. They list (canola, soy and/or sunflower oil) on the ingredient list and we must say, we really don't like when companies do that because there is no way of knowing how much and what particular oil you are consuming. We dropped their rating when this change came and hope it doesn't stick. Nonetheless, of the dressing choices on the shelves, if you are not going to make your own, this is a good one. And no sugar on the ingredients list makes us happy.

Annie's Cowgirl Ranch

Annie's Cowgirl Ranch

This is a huge upgrade from Hidden Valley Ranch or many other conventional ranch dressings because they do not use soybean, modified food starch, MSG or the long list of preservatives you find at the end of the ingredient list with conventional brands. They use less sugar than these other brands as well. What we love most about Annie's dressings are that they use apple cider vinegar in many of them. What we wish we could upgrade is the oil. They use high quality canola oil (expeller pressed) but it is not organic and we are concerned about the fast-growing genetic modification of canola (or the rapeseed plant, which is what it comes from). This dressing does contain sugar as well.

Anne's Cranberry Lime Kombucha

Anne's Cranberry Lime Kombucha

Kombucha Tea is a fermented probiotic drink made with a live Kombucha culture comprising of healthy bacteria, yeasts and other micro-organisms. We love the properties of Kombucha tea because it is a great way to alkalize the body and load up on probiotics. One bottle has 1 billion lactobacillius bacterium which will help keep the flora of the GI tract healthy and support healthy digestion and elimination. Kombucha Tea is detoxifying, loaded with antioxidants and great for a natural afternoon pick-me-up. Anne's Kombucha is uniquely made with flower essence which “incorporates the use of “chi” energies within living organisms.” While there are no additives or preservative in this beverage, it does contain evaporated cane juice so it looses a star for that reason. Note that kombucha tea is contraindicated for those struggling with systemic candida/yeast overgrowth.
