When the New Year rolls around, so many of us start looking for ways to take better care of ourselves. We vow to eat healthier foods, lose weight, stop worrying so much…and the list goes on. My personal struggle at the moment is getting better sleep, which is challenging because of baby Juliza, who’s never been a good sleeper. Most of our New Year’s resolutions have be achieved using focus and willpower, but there are a few that could get a little boost elsewhere. So when Walmart asked me to try a new line of herbal supplements from BioTerra Herbs, I thought they’d be a great jump start.
BioTerra Herbs offers drug-free herbal supplements that are non-GMO Project Verified, made in the USA, dairy free, gluten free and vegan-friendly. They’re designed to treat specific symptoms you might find yourself dealing with, and the line includes:
- Boing: Energy (that I could sorely use right this second)
- Ahhh: Detox
- Shush: Snoring
- Z-z-z: Sleep
- Gahh: Stress
- Zap: Immunity
- Huh?: Mental Focus
- Belch: Digestion
- Zoom: Vision
We received the first four to try. I was genuinely excited to try the energy supplement, but like many, they’re not recommended for anyone who is pregnant or nursing. Alas, another product test foiled by breastfeeding. Thankfully, my husband was more than willing to get in on the fun and try a few of the supplements. Check out our video review:
In case you’d prefer to read the review or you’d like more details, my hubby tried Boing and Ahhh, the energy and detox supplements.
He has recently started working out again, first thing in the morning. Given our very relaxed morning routine, he often needs a little boost to get going. He usually would drink a cup (or two) of black coffee, no sugar, no cream, or opt for Red Bull or some other energy drink. These did the job, momentarily, but the problem with caffeine or other stimulant-based supplements is that your body eventually comes down from the temporary high and crashes. He says that echinacea provided a similar energy boost, but without the crash a little while later. It was a more gentle energy source that offered a slightly more gradual increase of energy than what he was used to, but it was sustained through his workout.
As for the Ahhh detox supplement, it requires a two-day schedule. This is one of those products for which the effects are tough to describe. Detox does its work internally, so the effects are less tangible than some of the other options, but my husband insists he can feel the difference. It is designed to offer improved liver function, help remove toxins from the body and provide a gentle, internal cleanse. And…ummm…make you go to the bathroom more effectively. In other words, it’s supposed to help with overall wellness and feelings of energy and health. My husband really seems to like it, and he plans to continue using both supplements until he feels they’re no longer needed.
If you’d like to try some natural, herbal options for those nagging symptoms, you can get a 60-count supply of each supplement for only just $14.99 at Walmart.com or at your local store.
