This Month’s Special: Immucore from Metagenics Every winter, patients ask me what they can take to help keep them healthy through cold and flu season.  One of my favorite immune-boosting secret weapons is medicinal mushrooms. Mushrooms have been used for centuries to enhance immune function, and there are plenty of clinical studies to back them up.  ImmuCore from Metagenics combines medicinal mushrooms (Reishi, Shiitake, Turkey Tail, Oyster, Cordyceps and Maitake) with vitamin C, vitamin D, and zinc to provide broad spectrum immune support.  Take one daily through the winter. Also great for travel and times of stress when your immune …

This Month’s Special: Hemp Oil from Metagenics If you are looking to try “CBD,” it’s super important to know that you are getting a high quality product that complies with FDA regulations, contains what it promises, and is clear of contaminants. Very few products on the market live up to these qualifications, and I encourage you to read my blog to learn more about the tricky legalities of buying and selling CBD. Hemp Oil from Metagenics is my go-to for CBD and other phytocannabinoids. It’s pure, non-GMO, and organic. Metagenics is totally transparent when it comes to ingredients, contaminants, and …

This Month’s Special: Beautycounter’s Countertime Collection As a Beautycounter Consultant, I’m always watching for the latest in clean beauty products made with safe, non-harmful ingredients. They’ve recently launched Countertime, a new collection to help skin get better with age! The collection uses Retinatural Complex – an innovative blend of bakuchiol and Swiss alpine rose – to visibly firm, plump, and brighten skin. It’s a plant-derived alternative to retinoic acid, which many avoid due to concerns about skin irritation and cancer risks. Countertime has been causing a lot of buzz, so if you’ve been thinking of checking out the regimen, why not treat …

This Month’s Special: Countersun Mineral Sunscreen Mist SPF 30 With summer coming (hopefully soon!) it’s time to start thinking about sun protection. I’ve recently become aware of the dangerous chemicals lurking in the sunblocks and sunscreens that I’ve been using for years.  Not only do most sunscreens contain chemicals that are bad for our bodies, but they also contain chemicals that are destroying the reefs in our oceans.  For this reason, I’m using this safer sunscreen from Beautycounter – it sprays on evenly and blends beautifully.  It utilizes non-nano zinc oxide which means that there is no risk of inhalation when …

This Month’s Special: Liquid D3 by Metagenics This is my FAVORITE vitamin D.  It’s a liquid, which makes for easy dose adjustments, and the bottle literally lasts forever.  Each drop is 1000iu, so you can adjust your dose accordingly as your needs change.  It has a subtle minty flavor and can be put into water, your smoothie, or right on to your tongue.  The D3 is carried in medium chain triglyceride oil, which is important since vitamin D is fat soluble and needs some fat to be absorbed.  To order, go to Aswan.metagenics.com and use code SWAN for a discount on your …

UltraFlora Spectrum

This Month’s Special: UltraFlora Spectrum When it comes to probiotic supplements, what you see isn’t always what you get! Quality is of utmost importance when choosing a probiotic off of the shelf. Be sure to read the fine print – if a probiotic states that it has 5 billion CFU per capsule (for example), check to make sure that means at the time of expiration, not at the time of manufacture. If the bottle can’t confirm that the dose on the labeling is accurate at the time of expiration, there is no knowing how many bacteria are actually in the capsules …

This Month’s Special: Golden Fusion(TM) Have you tried golden milk? Golden milk is an ancient beverage from Ayurvedic tradition that combines anti-inflammatory herbs like turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, and cardamom with soothing coconut milk. It’s perfect as a bedtime ritual, especially on these long, chilly winter nights. Turmeric gives golden milk its bold yellow color and its main compound, curcumin, is used medicinally to treat joint pain, inflammatory conditions, and even depression.  Metagenics makes a lovely golden milk blend called Golden Fusion that makes preparing golden milk a cinch – just add one scoop to warm water, coconut milk, or almond …
