Heather’s Reviews

Lovin the mood boost that comes with this protein powder

The specs on this protein powder are incredible! I recommend pumpkin seeds all the time to my clients with anxiety, so to get it in a concentrated protein form is very exciting. I think my favourite part is the amount of magnesium it contains. 62% of your needs in a...

Burnout support that shows a lot of promise

To say I'm a fan of herbs and adaptogens is an understatement. My most frequently recommended category of supplements to clients (as an anxiety-focused Nutritionist) AND the type I most take myself are adaptogens! I'm always playing around with the balance of herbs and this product from Health First has...

A delicious way to get more energy!

I was so excited to try this B12 supplement from Pure'le because I actually take a B12 supplement every day! As a plant-based Holistic Nutritionist I know that you're at risk of B12 deficiency if you follow a vegan diet. Vitamin B12 is key for mood and energy, and helps...

Sleep support with solid ingredients!

I recently got to try Suku's Restful Sleep supplement. I was excited by the ingredients in the supplement! Melatonin is present in a small amounts, which is needed for your sleep cycle. And also GABA, a relaxing neurotransmitter the body needs to feel calm. This ingredient is great for anxiety...

One of my fav anxiety adaptogens: rhodiola

Rhodiola has been on my radar for many years as a Nutritionist that focuses on anxiety! I love using herbs to balance out the body and always appreciate anything natural to support the brain. This flowering plant has roots that are adaptogenic. Adaptogens are plants that help the body naturally...

Bring on the calm with reishi

This shiny mushroom is incredible for immunity! It can help reduce infection and fatigue in those with cancer, and reduces depression and pain in people with fibromyalgia. Reishi is all about longevity! It's been used for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine as an herb of "spiritual potency", it's said to...

Support your mind with mushrooms

I'm all about supplements that support my mind. As a long-time anxiety sufferer I often suspect that my brain has been impacted from this illness, and I'm always looking for a way to get back an edge. When I saw the ingredients in Havn Life's Mind Mushroom supplement I was...

Find brain & body balance with lion's mane

Ah lion's mane, this amazing shaggy mushroom! I've used it in cooking before, but never had it in supplement form! Here's why I was excited to try it. Lion's mane has been shown to help with inflammation and oxidative stress. Chemicals in our daily lives cause stress on the body,...

Get ready for peak performance with cordyceps

I was excited to try this supplement as my days are packed full with seeing clients, teaching yoga & meditation, and doing corporate wellness. I find I'm gassed at the end of the day from all that moving around. I need something that will give me more energy and cordyceps...

A true superstar ingredient for inflammation!

Chaga - the charcoal looking substance that grows on trees is one of the BEST antioxidant ingredients out there. And it is HOT right now, having a real moment in supplements and drinks. While it's hot and new to us, it's been used for many years by people in the...

Boost your memory with bacopa!

Bacopa is sometimes called "rejuvenator of intellect" and is a nootropic. This means it helps brain & nervous system function. As someone who has struggled with anxiety, and massive amounts of stress, I often forget things! Bacopa has been shown to reduce the rate at which we forget things! Bacopa...

A gluten-free flour alternative that stands out in savoury dishes too!

I love experimenting with different flours in the kitchen! Many of my clients are sensitive to gluten, and with typical all-purpose or wheat flour options off the table the outlook can seem bleak. I tried this potato flour from Ecoideas as a fun alternative to traditional flour. With only one...

Nutritionist approved source of sugar!

This alternative to traditional sugar peaked my interest when I saw the ingredients...just dates! I usually recommend my clients reduce refined sugar as it affects pretty much every cell in the body. And working in the area of anxiety management, blood sugar stability is KEY for feeling calm and happy....

Adaptogens to the rescue for stress & anxiety

This was my first time trying Niyama's Daytime Zen supplement, although I'm no stranger to adaptogens! I'm a big fan of using what nature has to offer (plants!!) as a way to cope with stress and anxiety. Our lives are stressful and there's a lot of uncertainty to deal with;...

A delicious chocolatey protein powder that's smooth as silk

I was excited to try Niyama's chocolate protein powder as I've tried their vanilla one in the past and enjoyed it! This one was even better! I wanted to work it into something more exciting than a smoothie so I recipe-tested a protein pumpkin loaf with awesome results. The pros...

A fun and flavourful snack to curl up with

Before trying this snack I actually had to google what "lotus seeds" were as I'd never seen them in a snack. But I think these little guys are going to be big in the coming years! The nutrition on them is solid with 14% of your fibre needs for the...

Culinary lavender used in a new way!

I've never used lavender in food before, but have always wanted to try it! I've only used the essential oil version to calm anxiety, but I was excited to try using it in a new way. I know lavender is calming and this is English lavender, which tends to be...

Lavender essential oil worked before a big presentation!

There's lots of research to support the use of lavender essential oil for anxiety, results are comparable with prescription benzos! It's something I use myself before nerve-wracking meetings or presentations, and I recommend it to many nutrition clients to help with sleep. What I like about this specific lavender is...

Organic spread that's a great alternative to dressing in salads!

I love the flavour of this organic vegetable spread! I used it in place of dressing in a salad because regular ol' oil & vinegar just doesn't do it for me anymore. I appreciate that the ingredients are fairly minimal, not a lot of extra stuff in the list. I'm...

A mood boosting oil that goes great with breakfast

I'm already a huge fan of styrian pumpkin seeds from Austria, I've used them in whole form before, and as a powder, but they can be tricky to work in. So I was really excited to find it in oil form for more versatility! The nutrition on them is solid,...

Supplement with the BEST adaptogenic herbs! Bye bye anxiety

Pretty pumped about this one! I've only just started taking it, and feel pretty good, but these types of herbs usually take a bit to ACTUALLY start working. Here's what I love about this product and why I'll be recommending it to my clients with anxiety:  ashwagandha - amazing for...

My natural chill pills for anxiety

I've been taking these for about 2 months now. I think the most interesting part was when I stopped taking them for a week (because I ran out) I noticed my anxiety returned. I started to feel panic at the grocery store like I used to. That's when I could...

A supplement to support mood and immunity!

We are living in an unprecedented time, and I'm sure we could all use a little extra support. For me, this support comes in the form of ramping up what supplements I use. I'm always talking about that gut-brain connection and how the bacteria in our body can support our...

First few sips are soothing and calming

This was my first time trying this tea with california poppy and chamomile! Luckily I'm having it before bed because the sleepies are setting in. The taste is pretty mild which I like, some chamomile teas are too strong for me.  As someone who works in anxiety and stress management...
