Here’s our hand-picked list of energy packed options to give you the extra momentum to soar in 2022.
Dr. Mercola Fermented Ginseng - Classic herb to boost energy, improve work performance, and mental sharpness and focus.
Perfect Rhodiola - A stellar adaptogen, that will boost energy noticeably for most people. Rhodiola rosea is able to stimulate the production of ATP in our cells, therefore rhodiola is able to pump up the fuel available to our body.
Perfect Desiccated Liver - The natural equivalent to a “multi-vitamin” because it’s loaded with B vitamins, Vitamin D, folate and a ton of other micronutrients (zinc, copper) that otherwise are difficult to get daily. Plus, it comes in a form that the body easily recognizes since it is a whole food. No wonder its Tim Ferriss' favorite only natural energy supplement.
Here are some helpful additions to your nighttime routine to get a better night's sleep.
Bioray Get Sleepy - This product’s main component is Mimosa bark (Albizia julibrissin) which is often used to promote sleep as well as emotional and mental calmness. Used in Traditional Chinese Medicine commonly as a treatment for insomnia.
Other Herbs: Valerian (Valeriana officinalis) - Valerian root is a sedative and will help to induce sleep.
Need a little help taming an active nervous system or a much needed break for your adrenals?
These are the best stress reducing and restorative options in one handy list.
Perfect Rhodiola Rosea - Rhodiola helps ease daily stress and to manage anxiousness, as well as improve mood.
Gaia Adrenal Health - By supporting and optimizing adrenal gland function this adaptogenic blend of herbs provides nourishment to the adrenals, enabling the body to adapt to stress in a healthy way. Contains Ashwagandha, Tulsi, Rhodiola, Wild Oats, and Schisandra berry.
I’ve got a double solution for you on this one…
Perfect Matchinga - Help to clear out the cobwebs with a nutrient dense cup of Matcha and Moringa blended together for focus and perkiness. This 50/50 blended powder is loaded with antioxidants, iron, calcium, vitamins, minerals, and all the essential amino acids.
Perfect MCT - The body uses MCTs for energy, translating to reduced brain fog and increased mental clarity. Use in your coffee, smoothies, as a dressing, or cook with it for energy benefits plus inflammation reduction.
(Pro Tip: combine with Perfect Matchinga for a “bulletproof matchinga” effect. Caffeine needs fats for better absorption. Combine this with a caffeine profile that doesn’t lead to afternoon crashes, and you’ll be in good shape.)
Bioray Mind Focus - Chock full of probiotics and Chinese Medicine herbs like Schizandra Berry, Eleuthero, and Soloman’s Seal, helps enhance memory and focus.
Other Herbs: Bacopa - (also known as ‘Brahmi’ in Ayurveda) This herb enhances mental clarity, which daily use will lead to an improvement in all aspects of mental function, learning, retention, and problem-solving. Classically used to treat mental fatigue and to enhance focus during meditation.
We asked ourselves the same question and put together this
must-have list of daily self care essentials for great skin, hair, and nails.
Perfect Hydrolyzed Collagen - Each bulb of hair on your head is surrounded by a sheath of collagen with tiny micro vessels that deliver nutrients. Having plenty of collagen is the key to keeping your hair nutrient rich and therefore thick, shiny and healthy.

Perfect Hydrolyzed Collagen - Collagen gives your skin strength and elasticity. 70% of the protein in your skin is collagen. Collagen can repair those skin fibers stop it from showing on your skin.
some healthy options to get your flora back on track
and to address some specific issues, these were my favorite picks:
Smidge Digestive Enzymes - These enzymes help ease common digestive symptoms from tough-to-digest foods, like cramping, bloating, gas, and occasional constipation.
Just Thrive Probiotic & Antioxidant - It contains 3 of the most viable and effective strains of probiotics and also includes an antioxidant-producing strain. This product has been shown to increase gut bacteria diversity by 30-50% in roughly 3 weeks time.
Just Thrive Ultimate IgG - “Leaky gut” occurs when there is a loss of integrity of the intestinal lining, allowing toxins from bacteria, microorganisms, and undigested food to leave the digestive track and enter into bodily circulation. IgG binds bacteria before they can pass into the circulation and attracts other components of the immune system to destroy them. Individuals with intestinal problems, including inflammatory bowel disease, gluten sensitivity, and diverticulitis should take IgG regularly.
to ensure you're getting vitamins, minerals, and some healthy protein.
Perfect Aquatic Greens - An all-star with the amount of vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and proteins packed in each capsule. Very high in iron and over 100% Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of B12 from a single serving.

Perfect Type II Collagen - For targeted joint health support, it would be hard to find a better ally. Its great if you have a specific injury to your cartilage, perhaps a knee injury, due to its high content of chondroitin, proteoglycans, and glycosaminoglycans (just to name a few).

Take it for your immune system and the rest of your body will benefit as well!
Garden of Life - Vitamin Code - Raw Zinc - Boost up the deep reserves in your immune system with extra Zinc. Zinc has been shown to help optimize immune system function and to reduce duration of the common cold.
