Remember when GNC was the only place that came to mind when you thought of vitamins and supplements? That or a dusty old aisle in the drugstore your grandmother might take you to. Not anymore.

The vitamin and supplement world, in particular the rise of “adaptogens,” has ignited a full-on renaissance for the vitamin world. The industry has had a total makeover and after the past year of difficulties, we could all use one, too! Lucky for us, there are now bounteous brands and formulations to cure our ills. So many in fact, with pretty packaging and celebrity endorsers, it’s hard to comb through them all.

Because it’s a new year, we’re homing in on products to help detox the body (ousting last year’s funk) and improve mental health (calming the nerves and increasing focus), because who knows what’s next. If looking at your health holistically is the future, as so many experts espouse, you’ll want to explore all that mother nature has to offer. The holistic paradigm shift is no longer just for health celebrities, it’s here in New Orleans so let’s explore!

Here’s to your health!
