Himalayan Crystal Salt



Himalayan Crystal Salt


Accept no other--Swanson Himalayan Crystal Salt is the only real Himalayan Salt in America endorsed by the founder of the European crystal salt movement, Dr. Barbara Hendel. As the ancient seas evaporated and the Himalayan Mountains rose from the earth, ribbons of pure crystal salt were stretched throughout the rock. Its structure, mineral composition and purity were thus preserved to this day. This crystal salt is finely ground and 100% pure and natural. It's not refined like table salt; it's more pure and wholesome than sea salt or rock salt. Dr. Hendel's Himalayan Crystal Salt is hand-mined to preserve its integrity and provide pure elemental energy from the earth. While many of Europe's leading chefs now demand Himalayan Crystal Salt in their kitchens, there's more to this natural wonder than culinary applications. Dr. Hendel recommends its use in baths, skin-care solutions, vaporizers and more--all detailed in her booklet Water & Salt, available exclusively through Swanson Health Products.

10 Herbal Supplements to Boost Your Energy


10 Herbal Supplements to Boost Your Energy


Energy is often a top priority when thinking about health—after all, if your energy levels are low, it’s hard to accomplish everything on your task list, much less get out of bed in the morning!

Whether you’re looking for a solution to the afternoon slump, a boost before your workout or a way to perk yourself up for the entire day, there are a variety of herbal supplements to help support your energy levels. Here are our top 10!

Korean Ginseng 
Korean ginseng is a well-known herbal energizer. Ginseng is an adaptogen, meaning it helps you adapt to stressful situations without crashing. It’s a stimulant free way to promote sustained energy and a feeling of balance.

American Ginseng 
Like Korean ginseng, American ginseng supports physical and mental energy, fights stress and aids immune health. Can’t pick between the two? We have a supplement that contains both!

Eleuthero 
Also known as Siberian Ginseng, this herb energizes the body and mind while fighting stress. It’s popular among professional athletes to gain endurance.

Suma Root 
This Amazonian herb was traditionally used for overall vitality and energy support. Today, it’s still revered for those benefits!

Guarana 
This natural fatigue fighter has a high concentration of caffeine (about three times more than coffee), which makes it a popular ingredient in modern energy drinks. It helps promote mental alertness and aids weight loss efforts.

Green Tea 
Popular for its potent antioxidant content, green tea also provides an energy boost due to caffeine. For those who don’t like drinking the tea, supplements are one option. But our tea-drinking customers love our organic matcha green tea!

Yohimbe 
While this herb’s primary claim to fame is sexual support for men, it also has energy-boosting qualities. Many athletes find yohimbe useful before a workout.

Gotu Kola 
A subtle energizer that also supports memory and mental performance, gotu kola is popular around the world. This Ayurvedic herb promotes vitality and healthy circulation, too!

Kola Nut 
Also called cola nut, the active ingredient in this herb is caffeine. Kola nut is commonly used as a flavoring agent for food and beverages, but it supports energy and a metabolic boost as an herbal supplement!

10  Rhodiola Rosea 
This Arctic herb is adaptogenic, meaning it helps you adapt to physical and environmental stressors. It will help fight fatigue and stress simultaneously—score! Many people find that rhodiola rosea provides sustained energy and mood support for the day.


Everyone’s body is different, so if one supplement doesn’t work for your needs, just move on to another. There’s certainly a lot to pick from!

Why Use Handcrafted Natural Soap?



Why Use Handcrafted Natural Soap?
Save the Environment!
by LaShonda Tyre


Now what in the whoo-whoo does soap have to do with the environment? Well I am glad you asked. I know  all the rave today in body care is those over glorified body washes and shower gels. Think about how many of those you go through in one year. Instead of using those landfill nightmares why not consider using bar soap and help save the environment. Those shower gel containers are mostly likely not biodegradable and you can’t recycle them.
With bar soap the packaging is most likely paper or very minimal. Plus you get to use the whole product. With shower gel you most likely don’t finish the entire bottle. There is probably an ounce-ish you can’t get out of the bottle….money wasted.
Now it may be a challenge going cold turkey in the beginning but think about how much you will be decreasing your carbon footprint. Give bar soap a chance. You may find it rewarding to your skin and to the environment.

Virgin Coconut Oil



Virgin Coconut Oil




Did you know that Virgin Coconut oil can take the place of other oils used in baking, frying and even for lotions, dry cuticles, wrinkles and shaving cream?  In cooking the fatty acid is converted into an energy source which is great for low-carb diets. Some people call it the all purpose oil with a healthy advantage. Give it a try.
