Tara Pittman is a blogger from Albuquerque, NM whose passions are health and fitness. She shares her health tips on Mom Knows Best. To celebrate the new year, she pulled together a list of her top eleven healthy product suggestions and where to find them.
1. Natural Sleep Supplement
With the stress of our new normal, it’s not surprising people may be having trouble getting to sleep. The first healthy product is a natural sleep supplement that can help alleviate this issue. Pittman tried JustCBD’s vegan gummies, good for relaxing before rest. Another suggestion she had for coping with nighttime anxiety is CBD oil.

2. All Natural All-Purpose Cleaner
Another helpful and healthy product, especially during the pandemic, is an all natural all-purpose cleaner. When it comes to cleaning, it can be challenging to keep the cost down as the products start to pile up. With an all-purpose cleaner, you can stretch your dollar while still cleaning your house effectively. Tara recommends Powerizer Complete Pods for its versatility. It can be used as a detergent, in the dishwasher, and on most surfaces in your home. They have the added benefit of of being plant and mineral-based. Additionally, the wrappers are biodegradable.
3. Heart-Healthy Fiber Supplement
Taking supplements can be an easy way to get your body what it’s lacking. If you need some extra love for heart health and cholesterol care, try BranPure Oat Bran Powder. Each Serving of Bran Powder Contains 1.5g of Soluble Fiber Oat Beta Glucan. Soluble Oat Beta Glucan Fiber in Oat Bran is legtiabtment, as it’s Approved by the FDA for Heart Health Claims. The powder is great for those who eat oatmeal or smoothies in the morning. But if you’re looking for an option that’s even easier, you can try BranPure Oat Bran Capsules. The capsules are convenient, as they are easy to swallow and odorless.
4. Tiger Nuts
Need something to munch on throughout the day but don’t want to be unhealthy? Try out Tiger Nuts. Though the name may confuse you, these nuggets are not nuts but are tubers that have the texture of nuts. Not only are they non-GMO, they are also great for someone with a lot of health restrictions. This is because they are nut-free, gluten-free, allergen-free, and dairy-free. Some of their additional benefits include being high in prebiotic fiber, low calorie, low fat, and nutritious.
5. Hydrating Vegan Hair Products
A common hair problem shared by many is dry hair. That’s why hydrating hair products are essential for this list. Pitman suggests MASMI, a premium haircare brand. The products are clean—without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. They contains a Japanese mean botanical that focuses on hydration. The neutral clean scent makes it perfect for anyone.
6. Semi-Permanent Hair Color
Though possible a bit niche for some, this product can help spice up your hair for the new year. The brand Celeb Luxury provides a semi-permanent hair dye in the form of shampoos and conditioners. They help rebuild and heal your hair, all while being 100% vegan and cruelty-free. The dyes come in a variety of colors, from traditional blondes and browns to vibrant pinks and blues.
7. Vegan Frozen Desserts
If you have a sweet tooth, this ones for you. Tara found a healthy frozen dessert that you can even eat for breakfast. Snow Monkey is an ice cream brand made from healthy ingredients like superfoods, seeds, and fruits. It’s even full of protein, antioxidants, and fiber. Currently, there’s 8 delicious flavors.

8. Professional Vegan Haircare Products
Mayraki Ultra Repairing & Weightless Moisture Shampoo is a vegan shampoo option that adds body while also repairing hair. Its sustainably sourced ingredients include Gingko Biloba, Aloe, and Canarium Album Leaf Extract. Additionally, the shampoo is also sulfate and paraben free.
Another product by the brand is the Mayraki Proactive Hair Repairing Treatment. This 100% vegan product check all the boxes, as it’s sulfate-free, paraben-free, and silicone-free. The fatty acids and vitamins helped to balance and strengthen hair, making it healthy, strong, and bouncy.

9. Energy IQ
Drinking caffeine in the morning can lead to a mid-day slump. Typically, drinking caffeine in the afternoon keeps people up at night. To solve this problem, Tara turned to Energy IQ. Energy IQ uses a blend of polyphenols and MCT oil. This combination, in addition to ingredients like blueberries, dark chocolate, and turmeric, helps provide higher energy levels and makes it a great, healthy product. Furthermore, it also helps with mental and physical stamina.

10. Feetures Youth Socks
Tara has been using Feetures socks for the past years and still loves them. They now have a Youth collection of Elite No-Show Tab socks, perfect for kids on the go. They don’t slip, don’t show, and hold up during athletic activities. Their warmth is especially great for the winter chill a lot of states are experiencing.

11. Rata Honey
Honey is very versatile. It can be used in baking, nightly teas, and also when sick to soothe a sore throat. Rata raw honey is derived from bees gathering nectar specifically from the Rata tree native to New Zealand’s West Coast Southern Alps. The honey is smooth, delicate, and floral. But what makes this honey stand out? Rata Honey goes through less processing than conventional honey, is not stirred for long periods of time, heated above normal beehive temperatures (approximately 95°F/35°C), and retains a higher content of healthy enzymes and micro-nutrients.
