Natural Vitality Kids Natural Calm Multi Vitamin

Natural Vitality Kids Natural Calm Multi Vitamin

Dietary Needs:
None

This liquid supplement is a smart one for kids as they have covered all of the bases in this formula. It is loaded with 24 organic fruits and veggies as well as incorporating some of the superfoods we love such as: organic pomegranate, açaí, goji and noni. This mixture also includes EPA and DHA and the fish oil is sourced from wild sardine and anchovy sourced off the coast of South America where there are significantly less environmental impurities. Omega-3's (EPH and DHA) are an integral part of cell membranes and precursors of several important cellular messengers. DHA has been recognized as necessary for brain, visual and nervous system health and development. This kids multi includes components of Natural Calm as well including a balance of magnesium and calcium. We liked the taste and think kids will too. It's fruity and sweetened with organic stevia and organic agave. We appreciate that is all Natural Vitality products there ingredients are organic and never genetically modified.

Bumble Bar

Bumble Bar

Dietary Needs:
Soy Free, Dairy Free, Gluten Free

The Bumble Bar is a sesame seed bar that contains an abundance of Omega 3 (EFAs), which we recommend all the time because they help to maintain healthy cell structure in the body, protect against heart disease, cancer, arthritis and much more. Sesame seeds are also one of the best sources of calcium.  They contain THREE times as much calcium as milk. Other ingredients include organic brown rice, syrup, organic flax seeds, vanilla, organic peanuts, sea salt, and vitamin E. All bars are gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free, and certified organic. They are a good source of fiber as well. Sadly, this bar is sweetened with evaporated cane juice which drop their rating by one star. We would love to see them come out with a product with just brown rice syrup. All ingredients are free of GMO's.

Natural Vitality NutraRev

Natural Vitality NutraRev

Dietary Needs:
None

NutraRev is a potent blend of antioxidants, which helps to protect the body against free-radical damage. We love that NutraRev is made with whole-food antioxidants including a blend of açaí, goji, mangosteen, grape, grapeseed, wild blueberry, raspberry, raspberry seed, cranberry, prune, tart cherry, wild bilberry and strawberry. This blend also includes alpha lipoic acid (fatty acid that plays a crucial role in the energy producing structures of the cells), D-ribose (used by all the body’s cells and essential in energy metabolism), ALC (a modified amino acid which, like alpha lipoic acid, enhances energy production in the cells) and CoQ-10 (a vitamin-like substance that plays a crucial role in energy production and is one of the body’s most powerful antioxidants.) This is a good way to boost your energy and is a quick, easy source of superfoods.

Soy Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, Low Glycemic, Gluten Free

Rise bars are designed with different formulations, for various times of day. The ingredients in the different formulations are carefully thought out. For example, the body needs a different sort of fuel first thing in the morning than it needs mid-afternoon, or than just before a workout. Different varieties include energy +, protein + and breakfast bars. This crunchy perfect pumpkin rise bar is designed to give you lasting energy in the morning. The ingredients include honey, which give you a quick source of energy first thing in the morning, fruit including dates, raisins, cranberries and apricots in big chunks to digest slower, and pumpkin seeds along with amaranth crisp for sustained energy and to slow the release of glucose. This is a smart snack to grab on the go, however it doesn't count as your breakfast. All rise bars are free of gluten, preservatives, GMOs, dairy, soy and peanuts. This company has been making these bars for years under the names Boomi Bar and Prana Bar so you might recognize those names as well as this concept.
