Let’s talk about vitamins and supplements for a minute. Does anyone else feel completely confused buying them? I feel like you never really know what you are buying. Where did it come from? Is the product safe? Who chose the ingredients? Is this worth the price? Most importantly, does the product actually do what the label says it will? Or am I just overthinking about this? In all fairness, let’s say all of the above.
That’s exactly why I’m obsessed with Balance Blends, which is a line of supplements containing a blend (hence the name), of vitamins and herbs personally formulated by Colette Widrin, L.Ac., MTOM*. Colette is a holistic practitioner in Beverly Hills and Malibu, who has been making bespoke supplements for the rich and unbalanced for years (and maybe even Real Housewives, but obviously she can’t tell).
The ingredients in Balance Blends are hand chosen by Colette herself, as opposed to a nameless cog in a large corporate wheel. These formulas are affective in treating a variety of health issues. We will get to what those are in just a minute.
All of the herbs have been sourced from wholesalers who are compliant with the Food and Drug Administration’s Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) as well as the Natural Product Association (NPA), using third-party quality control. Everything is triple-tested for safety and authentic. The capsules are 100% natural, and free of GMO starch, gluten and chemicals. On a side note, who would think those things are okay to put in a nutritional supplement anyway?
If you have a medical condition, are pregnant or taking any prescriptions, be smart and consult your physician before integrating supplements into your routine. But, you’re smart, so you probably knew that already.
Let’s take a look at the blends.
I feel like if there were one Balance Blends product that everyone needs, it’s this. Just Breathe (which is a good idea, always breathe), releases stress, moves Qi and helps you relax. I like to take this before bed to wake up feeling peaceful and ready to start the day.
If Just Breathe isn’t enough to just knock you out, Quiet Please could be exactly what you need. This formula stops your mind from racing (doesn’t that always happen when you can’t fall asleep? So annoying, right?), promotes deep sleep and nourishes the blood.
Acne Be Gone
When you are breaking out, all you need to do is go to the mirror and say, “Acne be gone” to yourself five times. Just kidding! If your breakouts can’t be controlled with topical creams, it’s probably time to nourish your skin from outside in. Acne Be Gone clears and prevents acne-causing toxins from ruining your skin and probably your day, possibly your life.
Speaking of breakouts, let’s talk about another awful side affect of PMS, cramps. Cramps cramp up your body and usually at least one week of your life. Cramp Whisperer whispers to your cramps to go away (and perhaps bother that annoying co-worker instead, she totally deserves cramps), nourishes your blood and reduces spasms to restore balance in your body, life, etc.
If you feel illness coming on, you probably pop a Vitamin C or Echinacea, but we all know that doesn’t really cut it. That’s why you need Force Field. Think of this blend as a personal trainer for your immune system, strengthening your body’s natural defenses, lifting Qi and restoring balance.
