And the Win­ners Are ...

Better Nutrition - - EDITOR’S NOTE - nbrechka@ aim­me­dia. com

Wel­come to our 10th An­nual Best of Sup­ple­ments Awards ( BOSA) is­sue! Start­ing on p. 37, you’ll fi nd 75 nat­u­ral prod­ucts that topped our list of fa­vorites this year. Af­ter re­view­ing hun­dreds of sup­ple­ments, we se­lected for­mu­las fea­tur­ing the high­est- qual­ity nu­tri­ents and ad­vanced pro­cess­ing meth­ods, among other dis­tin­guish­ing fac­tors.

Like ev­ery­thing in life, sup­ple­ments have changed a lot over the past decade. For ex­am­ple, a hand­ful of past BOSA win­ners are no longer around. Th­ese have been re­placed by a fresh crop of in­no­va­tive prod­ucts with easy- to- ab­sorb and clean in­gre­di­ents, in­clud­ing many non- GMO and farmto- tablet herbs and foods. I don’t want to for­get the clas­sics, though— you’ll fi nd sev­eral time- tested gems on our list too.

One of the hottest sup­ple­ments right now is hemp CBD oil, used to ease anx­i­ety, pain, de­pres­sion, in­som­nia, and other health is­sues. CBD oil is so pop­u­lar that health food stores can’t keep it in stock. We added a CBD- specifi c cat­e­gory to the awards to refl ect the grow­ing craze. Other in- de­mand sup­ple­ments in­clude col­la­gen for beau­ti­ful hair, skin, and nails; adap­to­genic herbs for stress, im­mune health, and en­ergy; turmeric and cur­cumin for pain and infl am­ma­tion; and cus­tom­ized pro­bi­otics for men and women.

Speak­ing of trends: Our “Keto Thanks­giv­ing” fea­ture on p. 52 is a fat lover’s guide to Thanks­giv­ing sides and desserts. How do Crispy Brus­sels Sprouts and Ba­con with Hazel­nuts, Spinach au Gratin, and Pe­can Pie Mini Cheese­cakes sound? If you like cream, but­ter, cheese, and ba­con, this is the Thanks­giv­ing menu for you! The keto- ap­proved recipes are very low in carbs, and are de­signed to help keep your blood su­gar steady.

In the spirit of giv­ing thanks, I’d like to thank every­one who picked up this is­sue of Bet­ter Nu­tri­tion. Keep it and share it with friends and fam­ily. The BOSA sec­tion, par­tic­u­larly, is the ideal year- round re­source for all your sup­ple­ment needs. Wish­ing you a Happy Thanks­giv­ing, and a healthy win­ter!
