Our Best Health Finds of the Week


With all the great (and not-so-great) health products on the market these days, it’s tough to wade through all the nonsense just to get to the quality. That’s why we’re bringing you our best health finds of the week.

From glasses that protect your eyes from blue light to the absolute best matcha green tea you’ve ever had in your life, there are plenty of quality goods here to help you stay fit, focused, and healthy. Combine any (or all) of these great products with a regular fitness regimen, and get your body in summer shape by Memorial Day.

What’s On Tap This Week?

Have you ever been concerned about the effect on your eyes from all the screen time modern life requires? At this point, there’s no way to tell. No generation before has been on screens as much as we are. And young kids today? They start staring at screens far earlier than even we did. That’s why Ambr developed eyeglass lenses that filter blue light.
We love matcha green tea. We’re also suckers for an entrepreneurial success story. That’s why Material Matcha Uji is so intriguing. These two guys gave up cush jobs to share their love of true Japanese matcha with the world. And their discovery can help all of us live healthier lives.
Gainful is one of our favorite protein powders because they blend the stuff to our body’s precise nutritional needs. The fact that gainful doesn’t cost any more than store-bought protein powders makes it all that more rewarding to enjoy. If you still haven’t yet tried Gainful, see below and find out what all the fuss is about.
Juice in the RAW is a company from Upstate New York that cold presses fresh organic fruits and vegetables daily, then flash-freezes and overnights it all over the US. That’s amazing in itself! But the fact that anyone, anywhere can purchase it through Walmart is particularly impressive.
Cronometer is a new app that helps you track not just calories, but the nutritional value of all the foods you eat daily. It syncs with your fitness trackers, too, so now you can dial in your daily regimen and achieve your goals with the help of technology.
Finally, a snoring helper that works for everyone—not just the snorers among us. Keeping your nasal passages moisturized and clear helps not just snorers breathe easier but those with colds and allergies, too. This awesome humidifier can moisturize a room that’s nearly 500 sq. ft.

Here are our best health finds of the week.

Juice From the RAW Organic Cold-Pressed Juice Cleanse

The Whenever Cleanse has the perfect combination of essential vitamins and minerals. It’s great for beginners looking for an introduction to a detox juice cleanse that’s both refreshing and invigorating.

Cold-pressed from fresh fruits and vegetables in New York state, this case of juices (16 oz. bottles, 18 in total) are shipped frozen to maintain freshness. Juices will arrive cold, and must be put in the freezer till ready to use. They are sent unpasteurized and are meant to be consumed within 3-4 days once defrosted. Juice from the RAW is delivered overnight to most places (some locations require 2-day delivery).

Along with the detoxing green juices, this cleanse comes with the health tonic UpBeet!, made with a tasty combination of root vegetables, and Coconut Fusion, a delicious and hydrating juice created from coconut water and coconut flesh.

The Cold-Press process preserves the nutrients and enzymes by limiting its exposure to oxygen which breaks down the cells of the vegetables. Drink six bottles a day for three days, and detox your body the natural way.

Ambr Eyewear

Ambr Eyewear look just like regular glasses. But they’re precisely engineered to block blue light, which has been linked to short-term issues like eye strain and sleeplessness as well as long-term eye damage.

Screen lenses (shown) are for anyone who wants to be protected from blue light but avoid the tint. They look like regular lenses but filter the harmful blue light emitted when you’re staring at a computer all day at work or binge-watching all weekend.

Sleep lenses black out almost all blue light, which aids melatonin production and results in better quality of sleep.

Transition lenses let you go straight from screen to beach without taking your glasses off. They’re light-responsive computer glasses indoors, sunnies outside.

Sun lenses are polarized for UV and blue light protection. Stronger than your average pair of shades, they’re perfect for poolside and making your friends jealous.

If your eyes tend to go bleary after a few hours of screen time, consider a pair of Ambr Eyewear glasses. All are available in non-prescription and prescription forms.

Material Matcha Uji

Two young Frenchmen living and working in Japan fall in love with real Japanese matcha tea, not the stuff they’d been sold back home. So they quit their IT and finance jobs and start a company to share their discovery with the world. It’s the classic entrepreneurial fairy tale.

Material Matcha Uji (MMU) produces insanely good matcha green tea. It collaborates with traditional tea-masters, using ancient blending techniques and the highest quality tea leaves from Uji to create the most exclusive blends of matcha ever offered outside of Japan.

Some studies have shown it lowers cholesterol and blood sugar, and of course a delicious cup of green tea can enhance your mood and aid concentration.
