Back to School with True Botanica: Teacher Must-Haves

Part 3: Teacher Must-Haves

This year, we are excited to kickoff a multi-part Back to School Blog Series! In case you missed our previous posts, check out our Student Survival Guide and Parent Must-Haves

We know how important it is for teachers to stay healthy during the busy school year. Here are a few of our suggestions of Back to School natural Products for teachers to keep you healthy and present this year!

Lung Root:
A full spectrum, completely non-alcoholic product containing high quality pelargonium root. The root of Pelargonium sidoides has been known in traditional medicine, and confirmed by modern research, to be a significant support for the immune system and support the health of the lung and upper respiratory tract. Available in Lemon and Menthol.

Throat Defense:
Contains mouth specific probiotics to support the natural respiratory barrier against airborne microbes. The probiotics, BLIS K12, have a dual function: they discharge bacteria-fighting proteins AND replenish the desirable normal cells in the lining of the mouth, crowding out and making it more difficult for the “outside” invaders to establish themselves. Throat Defense comes in two flavors: Berry and Menthol

Prunus Spinosa 6X
This refreshing restoring tonic provides relief, especially from exhaustion. As with all of our OTC Homeopathic/Anthroposophic products, the Kolisko Validation test has been used to show how the final product is significantly greater than a water control!

Strophanthus Kombe 6X
This product helps provide relief against stress, especially exam anxiety (important not just for students, but for teachers too!)

Hawthorn Plus
This product contains organic Hawthorn berry plus the salts of the hawthorn plant. Hawthorn helps keep the heart strong and healthy and supports a normal blood pressure. It also lessens fatigue by invigorating the cardiovascular system.

Multivitamins Plus:
Like many multivitamins it delivers over 100% of the recommended daily dietary needs for most vitamins and basic mineral – but what makes ours stand out is we also include rhythmically prepared herbs, trace minerals and spices that enhance the absorption and utilization of all nutrients. Plus, we include the energizing herb Guarana.

Vital Mind AM
We know the importance of teachers needing to be on their toes, so stay sharp throughout the year, this ginseng containing formula can help you do just that! Ginseng is known for improving functions like: vitality, concentration, attention accuracy, arithmetic ability, working memory speed and more.

Coffee/Pero Products
The newest addition to the True Botanica product line, we are excited to now offer Fresh Roasted Coffee and Decaf Coffee and Regular and Extra Dark Roast Pero! If coffee/pero is already a part of your morning routine, consider purchasing ours, as the profits directly support anthroposophic medical research!

Hand & Body Cream
This hypoallergenic, natural cream provides a deep lasting most moisturizing and renewing effect that absorbs quickly and won’t leave behind a greasy residue.

It’s that time of the year again – Back to School! This year, we are excited to kickoff a multi-part Back to School Blog Series! Be sure to check back as we continue to post our top suggestions on how to have an A+ school year!

Students with Throat Defense bottles

Let’s start with our Student Survival Guide, a list of products essential for helping your student succeed in and outside of the classroom. 

Throat Defense:
Contains mouth specific probiotics to support the natural respiratory barrier against airborne microbes. The probiotics, BLIS K12, have a dual function: they discharge bacteria-fighting proteins AND replenish the desirable normal cells in the lining of the mouth, crowding out and making it more difficult for the “outside” invaders to establish themselves. Throat Defense comes in two flavors: Berry and Menthol

Available in Lemon and Menthol.

Elderberry Thyme Syrup:
Our formula contains pure, organic elderberry syrup. There’s nothing like it to keep the immune system going and provide a soothing effect in times of temporary coughs and congestions.

Multivitamins Plus:
Like many multivitamins it delivers over 100% of the recommended daily dietary needs for most vitamins and basic mineral – but what makes ours stand out is we also include rhythmically prepared herbs, trace minerals and spices that enhance the absorption and utilization of all nutrients. Plus, we include the energizing herb Guarana.

Berberine Plus
This is the most full spectrum barberry root formula available. Not only does it contain high amounts of the naturally occurring berberine, it also includes rhythmically prepared ashes and salts derived from the root. This product promotes increased workout and exercise effectiveness, an “upbeat mood,” a strong heart and normal sugar level.

Vital Mind AM
Help your student stay sharp this year with this Ginseng containing formula. Ginseng is known for improving functions like: vitality, concentration, attention accuracy, arithmetic ability, working memory speed and more.

True Botanica Fall Favorites

As we are now in to our first official week of Autumn, the True Botanica team thought we would share some of our Fall Favorites! 

Heidi

As much as I wish summer could last forever, I will admit that Fall does have certain advantages.  Obviously the changing colors of the surrounding Wisconsin landscape are nothing short of breathtaking and nothing compares to the feeling I get when I catch that first whiff of autumn in the air.  But there is more than that.  Around the middle of September, after a long summer hiatus, I rediscover my love for baking.  And it is exciting when those creative juices start to flow and I get to put together Halloween costumes for the kids.  Here is a photo of my son in his costume, maybe it will help to get your creative juices flowing.

Philia

Halloween is always a blast, I really love getting creative with costumes for both myself and my husband (whether he likes it or not). I also get very in to pumpkin carving, it’s such a fun Fall art project! Another perk is being able to get “fall fresh” apples and squash from the Farmer’s Market. My favorite fashion part of Fall is black sweater turtlenecks. I’m made fun of for this, but every year since college I find a black sweater turtleneck and buy 2 of the same one I like and wear them all the time!

Alyssa

Fall is hands down my favorite season! Especially living in Wisconsin and seeing how beautiful the trees look as their leaves change colors. The tree outside of the True Botanica office is still one of my favorites to watch change, as you can see in this picture from last year. This is also my ideal time to enjoy running outside because the extreme heat from the summer has tapered off and the cold has yet to set in, making it the perfect climate for a mud run! I also love fall clothes when I can finally bring out all of my scarves and my favorite boots!

 

 

True Botanica

We also have a few Fall Favorite True Botanica products, perfect to keep you healthy during all of your favorite fall activities: Lung Root and Elderberry Thyme Syrup help soothe the throat while the Throat Defense provides the immune support you need for all of your favorite Fall activities. Since many of these favorties take place outside, try the Hand & Body Cream to keep your skin smooth as the weather changes.

What are some of your Fall Favorites?

True Botanica Travel Essentials

One True Botanica coworker is going on vacation and of course couldn’t forget to pack a few of her True Botanica Travel Essentials.

Suitecase with True Botanica products

In my suitcase you’ll find:

  • Throat Defense: Let’s be honest, crowded planes are not the most germ-free of places. Thankfully my Throat Defense Berry is small enough that I can bring it with me when I travel to give me extra immune support.
  • Clear and Calm: I’m not a fan of flying, but the Clear and Calm helps keep me relaxed before and during my flight. I’m sure my travel buddies will be relieved to hear of that!
  • AKBA Plus: The last thing I want to spend my vacation doing is sneezing and wheezing. I already take AKBA Plus daily, so why stop on vacation?
  • Face Moisturizing Cream: This is part of my morning routine so whenever I travel I make sure to bring my Face Moisturizing Cream, especially when I know I’ll be outside in the sun and need to keep my skin moisturized.
  • Relief 4x Cream: I’m sure we’ll be walking around and seeing all there is to see, so I know the Relief 4x Cream will be just what I for my aching legs at the end of the day.
