Coffee. It’s a beverage that connects us—to our morning routine, to our friends, to the stories we hear and read and tell while enjoying it. And, it should also connect us to the place it was grown, which is the reason for Birds & Beans. The only U.S. coffee brand that’s 100% Smithsonian Bird-Friendly Certified, every bag helps preserve over 100,000 acres of tropical habitat for migratory and local birds. It’s shade-grown, on family farms, the way coffee traditionally flourished, before monoculture production stripped away vegetation and habitats to mass-produce it. Plus, it’s Organic and Fair-Trade Certified, too. So, whether you tell your best stories to the chocolatey notes of the Medium-Dark Roast or you’d rather the sweet-toffee smoothness of the Espresso, let Birds & Beans connect you to details that matter.

Energy—it’s often something we associate with the kids or ourselves after that second cup of coffee. Did you know that your immune system requires energy, too, for proper function? And that B vitamins play a vital role in supplying that energy? They also help synthesize neurotransmitters and maintain healthy brain cells, which has a positive impact on our mental wellbeing, but there’s a catch. Our bodies don’t store B vitamins, so they need to be replenished daily. They also must be in their metabolically active, coenzyme form, to be effective, which is why you need to know about Natural Factors Biocoenzymated Active B Complex. This formula takes it a step beyond effective with its proprietary EnviroSimplex® Technology. The synergistic power of plant phytochemicals and coenzymated B vitamins combines to deliver the most metabolically active nutrients straight to your cells. Forget about that second cup of coffee—it’s time to energize your health with B vitamins!*
Gimme some zinc and make it tasty! When we’re thinking about immune support, this mineral is top of mind. And, when we’re thinking about getting our daily dose of zinc—Zand HerbaLozenges is a no brainer. Plus, they’re yummy and soothing! In case you haven’t heard, zinc plays a critical role in supporting healthy immune function, especially because of its impact on T cells—the white blood cell warriors of the immune system that seek and destroy infected cells. Without enough zinc, T cells suffer impaired development and function, which is the last thing that your immune system needs in 2020. Zand Lozenges combine zinc with botanicals like elderberry, echinacea, or eucalyptus to give you a well-balanced, easy-to-take approach to supporting healthy immune function. Sweetened with brown rice syrup instead of sugar, they’re corn and GMO-free and vegan. Get yourself some Zand zinc today!*
