Herb-Infused Honey Is the Newest Way to Get Your Vitamins
By Elise Minton Tabin |
Popping a vitamin daily is one of the best ways to keep your body fueled with the nutrients and minerals it needs. Without them (as well as any sort of supplement), you probably deprive your body of the essentials it needs to look and stay healthy inside and out.
While taking an oral supplement every day may seem easy, it isn’t always that cut and dry. Some are huge and are difficult to swallow. Others need to be taken with food to prevent nausea. And a handful come in small packets that require you to swallow multiple pills in one sitting.
So what are you to do if you can’t down the pills but still want to get your daily dose of vitamins? You can try the new Herbal Remedies teas, tinctures and fortified honeys from wellness giant Naturopathica.
Designed by founder and CEO Barbara Close, who also happens to be a master herbalist, this new collection helps to boost your body’s health and vitality internally and externally. While they aren’t exactly the same as a typical vitamin in pill form, they’re the next best thing.
“Herbal remedies play an essential role in bringing wellness full circle as we continue to educate our community about ways they can live better and take charge of their health,” states Close. “With the rise of chronic imbalances due to the stress of our 24/7 lifestyles, consumers now want a more holistic approach to wellness.”
It’s the Herbal Tinctures ($29) and Fortified Honeys and Remedies ($18) that really caught our eye. The tinctures, which are basically herbal extracts in liquid form, are said to be more effective than capsules because they are absorbed and broken down by the bloodstream faster. The honeys are created with raw, organic wildflower honey and are infused with adaptogenic and balancing herbs, which work to increase the body’s ability to fight off stress and disease. Whether you use them daily or more on an as-needed basis, these little jars of deliciousness really deliver results.
