September Staff Picks
Allison - Organic Tahini by Once Again
Simply put, Tahini is a paste made from ground sesame seeds. A staple of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cooking, and a major staple in the Wear household! Tahini is the key ingredient in two of my favorite recipes, zucchini hummus (or zummus as I like to call it) and goddess dressing. At World of Nutrition, we carry the Once Again brand of Organic, unsweetened and salt free tahini, or if you find yourself with some extra time, make your own tahini!
Kris - DIM Supreme by Solaray
Diindolylmethane (try saying that 3 times really fast!) or DIM (if you aren't up for the fun with herbal words challenge) is a supplement that I have taken for years and years. It is one of the supplements I take that I notice when I run out. The most noticeable result I get by taking DIM is that I store less belly fat and have better hormone balance. There are also a lot of great healing and protective properties that I don't physically notice so much but I know it is benefiting my health. The first and most important thing DIM does is reduce the amount of bad estrogens in the body. This is so important for a variety of reasons but breast cancer prevention is the biggest one. It can also be helpful if you suffer from typical female troubles like PMS, period pain, headaches, cellulite and moodiness. And for the men it helps reduce prostate issues, man boobs and the dreaded beer belly. With all of the harmful estrogens and xenoestrogens we are exposed to on a daily basis, we should all be taking a DIM supplement!
Kristen - Ultimate Ginseng by Herbs Etc.
Ginseng is one of my most favorite herbs, as I have relied on it for years to help balance the side effects of physical and emotional stress. Ultimate Ginseng is a blend of 8 different types of Ginseng that each have their own unique benefits. It is my go to for sustained and reliable energy throughout the day without any side effects. I also have used it to help me through times of major life stress when emotions can become physically exhausting and I need support to push me through and keep me mentally strong.
Brenda - Rhodiola by Jarrow
After using Jump Start by Gaia to strengthen my adrenals, I needed a supplement that would help maintain my restored energy. Taking rhodiola has kept me from returning to a state of fatigue that was starting to feel debilitating. Rhodiola has helped me feel like myself again, and I have full, productive days and the drive to keep doing more.
Emarene - Raw Resveratrol by Garden of Life
I started taking Resveratrol three months ago, and I have noticed an amazing difference in my skin. It looks more youthful and my skin tone is becoming more even and healthy looking. Not only has this product made me more beautiful, but I didn’t get sunburned at all this summer, and I hardly wore sunscreen. I love this product for all its anti-aging benefits.
