As summer comes to an end and Fall creeps its way back in, our energy and motivation might be taking off along with it. You know what we’re talking about: you’re more tired these days, nervous or moody. You would rather be wrapped in a blanket with a cup of hot cocoa and the remote than taking a brisk jog or hitting the gym. We get it.
As the days get shorter and the nights get colder, even the best of us can get a little down. To help you stay healthy, energized and on track with your health and fitness goals, we teamed up with our sponsor NOW® Foods to bring you the season’s best immunity and energy enhancers – from foods to supplement to essential oils. Plus, scroll down for a BIG prize opportunity to boot.
NOW Real Food® Raw Energy Nut Mix: Raisins and walnuts and pecans, oh my! We think this mix of nuts and fruit is the perfect pick-me-up to any fall afternoon. It’s also ideal as a portable healthy snack for kids’ lunches or adults on the go. As a natural source of healthy fatty acids, this mix also gives you a natural burst of energy. Full list of ingredients include raisins, walnuts, pecans, almonds, pumpkin seeds and cashews.
NOW Real Food® Full Tilt™ Tea: For all you tea-lovers out there, this mix of spices and fruits will keep you naturally high powered. Naturally occurring caffeine, botanical energizers and tannins are some of this tea’s key ingredients that energize and sharpen the senses. Drink up!
NOW Real Food® Berry Energy Slender Sticks: With only 15 calories of deliciousness, and sweetened with the natural, sugar-free goodness of BetterStevia™, these drink sticks are a great alternative to artificially sweetened beverages. They’re high in antioxidants, provide 50% or more of nine daily vitamins and contain 8330% of the daily value of vitamin B-12.
NOW Real Food® Instant Energy B-12: Looking for a convenient way to stay sharp and well-fueled? Look no further than Instant Energy B-12! You’re sure to get the energy boost you need, as each packet contains 2000 mcg of fast-acting B-12. Just mix a packet into water, juice or another favorite beverage and you’re good to go!*
NOW® ENERGY: Somedays we just don’t have the energy to get through the day. That’s where ENERGY comes into play. It’s a dietary supplement that works as a nutritional and herbal energy booster.* It’s also packed with naturally-formulated ingredients such as B Vitamins, Green Tea, Panax Ginseng, and Rhodiola.
NOW® Sports L-Carnitine: While L-Carnitine can naturally be found in red meat and other proteins, a daily supplement is still advised – especially if you’re a die-hard gym-goer or athlete.* Why? Research has shown maintaining optimal levels of L-Carnitine may promote optimal athletic performance.*
NOW® Quercetin with Bromelin: A flu shot might be your top priority when it comes to battling cold and flu season – but it can only do so much. We recommend adding in a dietary supplement such as Quercetin with Bromelin to support healthy seasonal immune function. In other words, this supplement will aid in keeping you free from the discomforts of cold and flu symptoms.
NOW® Probiotic-10™ Packets: No one likes dealing with mild stomach upset – especially when you’re busy with work, school and the stresses of everyday life. Support your GI health with probiotics.* These take-with-you-anywhere packets contain at least 10 billion live organisms proven to colonize the GI tract plus promote intestinal tract health.* They’re also dairy, wheat and gluten-free (which, for some, is why we experience these issues in the first place!). Mix a packet into water or juice 1-2 times per day.
NOW® Solutions Cheer Up Buttercup Essential Oil Blend: The shorter days and longer nights can easily make the days feel grey. But there’s an easy way to brighten up the day. We recommend diffusing Cheer Up Buttercup Essential Oil Blend – a mix of Bergamot Oil, Orange Oil, Lime Oil, Grapefruit Oil and Lemon Oil that’s uplifting, energizing and refreshing.
