Hero Nutritionals Slice of Life Vitamins

Hero Nutritionals Slice of Life Vitamins

Dietary Needs:
None

Slice of life offers a full spectrum of nutritional supplements for all ages. These gummy vitamins are easy to chew and are gluten and allergen free. The line includes a standard multi, a fish-free Omega 3-6-9 complex, and vitamin C. We don't like the fact that the first two ingredients are glucose syrup and natural cane sugar, however.  Each vitamin dose is 22 calories, with 4 grams of sugar. It's important to consider if you take several vitamins from the Slice of Life line, you’ll be ingesting the sugar equivalent of a serving of Cap’n Crunch. That makes us drop the star rating quite a bit.

Lundberg Brown Rice Crisps

Lundberg Brown Rice Crisps

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

Just when we thought Lundberg couldn't get any better they came out with these incredibly tasty brown rice crisps. These are a Whole Journey favorite to pair with hummus or guacamole. These chips are made with all organic grains and the product is 70% organic. This company is Non-GMO-Project verified with that logo on every bag of chips. This brown rice crisp is a wholesome, healthy-for-you snack, which adds fiber and B vitamins. Lundberg has removed the ingredient yeast extract from this product to improve the quality even more, which we love. Check out the four new flavors: Sesame and Seaweed, Fiesta Lime, Santa Fe Barbeque and Original. Thank you, Lundberg. You rock!

Vaska Oxygen Brightener

Vaska Oxygen Brightener

Dietary Needs:
None

This product is the natural version of bleach. While bleach has many harmful chemicals, this product has three simple ingredients: hydrogen peroxide, plant based surfactants and filtered water. Most people don't know that bleach is actually a pesticide which is also found in many household cleaning products that contain a "disinfectant" to kill germs. Vaska is a HUGE upgrade to bleach and will keep linens clean and white without weakening fibers. Be aware that it does not brighten quite as much as bleach does. We love supporting a company like this one with strong values in sustainability and environmental consciousness.

BLK Water

BLK Water

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

BLK water is a whole new experience when it comes to keeping hydrated. This water is actually black! It is different than any other water on the market because they have taken spring water and added fulvic trace minerals. Fulvic trace minerals are sourced from ancient, organic humus bed (highly mineralized soil). It also has the ability to remove toxins and act as a powerful antioxidant. Fulvic trace minerals play a critical role in the growth of plant life, assisting in the transport and absorption of nutrients inside the plant cell. Once these minerals are extracted and added to pure water, the water turns black naturally without the use of any artificial dyes or colorings. We are constantly encouraging clients to add trace minerals to their filtered water because all filtered water has been stripped of trace minerals. By adding the fulvic trace minerals the water is naturally high in ectrolytes and is naturally alkaline which can help to boost pH.
