Squatty Potty

Squatty Potty

Dietary Needs:
None

The Squatty Potty is a stool that’s shaped to fit around the foot of a toilet, allowing your feet to be elevated and your body to assume a squatting position. That posture straightens the bend in your rectum (the anorectal angle) so it’s easier for you to eliminate. The Squatty Potty makes elimination faster, easier, and more complete, which relieves constipation and prevents hemorrhoids.

Premier Research Labs D3 Serum

Premier Research Labs D3 Serum

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Dairy Free, Gluten Free

The most natural way to get vitamin D is by exposing your bare skin to sunlight, but most people are seriously deficient and may require additional dietary supplementation. Vitamin D is essential for healthy calcium metabolism, as it promotes intestinal calcium and phosphorus uptake and can also reduce urinary calcium excretion. It supports multiple body organs, including healthy bones, nerves, heart, brain, lungs, esophagus, breasts, colon, stomach, pancreas, prostate, uterus, ovaries and the kidneys. PRL's high-quality, live-source vitamin D3 liquid provides targeted immune and cardiovascular support with no toxic tagalongs. Studies propose ideal vitamin D3 intake should be 2000 IU or more daily, but it really depends on your personal test results. The Vitamin D Council suggests that a level of 50 ng/ml is the optimal level to aim for.

NOW Foods Ubiquinol (CoQ10)

NOW Foods Ubiquinol (CoQ10)

Dietary Needs:
None

CoQ10 (and Ubiquinol) can help protect your body from free radical damage, support your immune and nervous system, help maintain normal blood sugar levels, boost your energy and stamina levels, promote cardiovascular health, and reduce the normal signs of aging. There are two forms of CoQ10, and the better, more effective version is called ubiquinol. Ubiquinol is the form your body actually uses to achieve its benefits. Substantial research shows that if you are over 25, this reduced form is superior for your health. If you're under 25 years old, your body is capable of converting CoQ10 to the reduced form fairly well and the additional expense of purchasing the reduced form is unnecessary. However, if you're older, your body becomes increasingly challenged to convert the oxidized CoQ10 to ubiquinol.
