So What are the hottest new natural products for 2011?
Dragons blood Extract is just one. Attending the Natural Products Expo 500 exhibits last weekend gave us at Wally’s Natural the chance to preview the line-up of new products from all over the world. Natural does not mean age-old plant remedies and plain foods. Cosmetics, cleaning products, Pet products, baby products and supplements all had new items to display. The latest scientific discoveries involving botanical ingredients and formulations give rise to better safer natural products. A buzz word is for body products is “Bio-Available”, or the ability of the body to use the nutrients, energy, and healing properties from products ingredients. Over-heating or pastuerizing may destroy some nutrients, Some ingredients are more potent when combined with other ingredients, or when processed in new ways. We at Wally’s are always interested in what is the best ingredients and products for your health, and care about bio-availability, how we source and package, and in bringing knowledge to you. In the last few years the darlings of the show have been Acai Berry, Aloe leaf juice, Stevia and products with Reservatrol. So what are some of the products getting attention now? Cherry, Baobab, and Maqui products, wheat grass shots, coconut juice products, and agave nector to name a few.
In the food section we decided the raw seaweed biscuits and flax-seed crackers took a backseat in taste to the newest organic chocolates, which are being fortified and improved to help with heart health. A new juice extractor that claims to deliver considerably more juice and more nutrients due to slow mashing rather than spinning was one now on our wish list. Cute Sippy cups for kids using safe plastics and other fun products were on display in the New Products section. We hope to share some of the most interesting with you soon. Keep well!
