Geek Stuff: School Survival Kit
Life Choice Neurotransmitter Support
As Kanye West would say (or in fact our very own Ian Batt), this product will make you feel "smarter, faster, better, stronger," #KanyeforPresident. Seriously though, this is basically a (healthy) snack for the brain. Assisting with production of neurotransmitters and aiding in the transport of vital nutrients into brain cells, it supports mood, memory, and overall brain power. In essence, it will help you work at your most efficient and get your working memory directing brain traffic appropriately. It also helps reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer's and dementia. Overall, we call this one a #VitaWin.
Prairie Naturals OCU-FORCE
As a recovering university student (yes, four years later the trauma lives on) I can tell you there's nothing worse than defective vision when you've got 50 page research papers to write and never-ending textbooks to read. I used to suffer through blurry vision and difficulty with vision focus late at night and my prescription reading glasses failed to repair the situation. Ocu-Force contains a blend of super-antioxidants for promoting healthy eyes and vision including benfotiamine, astaxanthin, lutein, zeaxanthin and black currant extract. Translated, this means it works to improve night vision and increase circulation to the eyes, while soothing eye strain and strengthening eye tissue. It also reduces damage caused by free radicals.
Prairie Naturals Liquid B Complex Solution
B Vitamins are somewhat of a superhero. Not that all vitamins aren't heroic in their effects, but lacking in B vitamins can be host to countless ailments. This solution is a complete B vitamin profile containing B12, B6 ,B5, B12, folic acid & biotin. Proper levels of B vitamins promotes energy and stress management, iron absorption, and prevents anemia. It's also essential for metabolizing carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, and establishing normal growth and development. Needless to say, lacking in any of these makes everyday functioning near impossible. Personally I love any supplement that comes in liquid form as I can easily add it to a smoothie or mix with one of my 800 glasses of water. Convenience is key!
A. Vogel Echinaforce ExtraEvery time I hear the word "Echinacea" I have vivid memories of my childhood and being forced to take some with my breakfast. At the time, it was a cause so unjust I couldn't wait to bid farewell to Echinacea forever. However, as the years went on, my disdain for the "common cold buster" went out the window. With fall, back to school, and cold weather on its way, now is a pretty fantastic time to prepare yourself. A. Vogel's formula is filled with 1200 mg of fresh Echinacea tincture per tablet and works to strengthen your immune system. It has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties making it all-around MVP of the supplement world.
And with that, we wrap up our Geek Stuff: School Survival Kit, which as you can see, is useful for anyone looking to optimize their vision, immunity, energy and more. Throw in a couple healthy snacks and you've got yourself a winning combination.
