And just like that, 2018 is over. You’ve probably begun to list down your New Year’s resolutions, and maybe have started ticking a few off your list—but as the months go by, you’re going to need the strength and motivation to keep on track. Our advice? Stay on top of your game by taking supplements.
We’re not just talking about your daily dose of vitamin C. When it comes to the rigorous grind of daily life, herbal blends and gut-friendly bacteria can help you manage stress, stay focused and energized, and even fight an entire spectrum of sickness. In other words: If staying healthy is your goal for 2019, then these all-natural enhancers can get the job done!
To get you started, we’ve listed down the buzz-worthy boosters you definitely need on your shelf! Check them out, below!
These powered-up plants have their roots in Chinese and Ayurvedic healing traditions, and have climbed their way back to the health industry for one prevailing reason: they shield the body from long-term stress.
Ginseng, basil, and licorice—all of which you’ve probably already tried—fall under this category. They restore harmony in the endocrine system, lower anxiety and increase stamina, and even improve sexual performance. Since they also boost energy levels, they’re perfect to take together with your morning smoothie.

Want to clear out some brain fog? These memory-enhancers should help improve cognitive function, stimulate creativity and clarity, and even balance your mood. Some notable examples include ginkgo biloba, rosemary, and turmeric.
So how do they exactly work? Nootropics are chockfull of compounds and nutrients that help increase circulation to the brain, support neuroplasticity (A.K.A. the brain’s capacity to change and adapt), and stimulate cellular production. Consider them as as the anti-aging serum of the brain!

Microflora—otherwise known as healthy bacteria—does a whole lot more than prevent the occasional tummy ache. They improve the function of your internal organs, and this leads to better metabolism, stronger immunity, and even clearer skin. Did we also mention that they help you trim and slim down?
Yogurt, kefir, and kimchi are some crowd-favorite sources of probiotics. However, a daily supplement should give you a good dose (we’re talking billions) of Lactobacillus or Bifidobacterium, which help restore your gut microbiome and help break down fiber, proteins, and other nutrients!
