Proper hydration is the most essential step to keeping healthy in the warmer months and Essentia Water is the best tool to do so. Essentia is created using a proprietary process that results in a supercharged ionized alkaline water with a 9.5 pH or higher that’s better at rehydration*. Essentia is available nationwide in over 50,000 U.S. retailers in most major grocery stores, as well as in most health or natural food stores. Essentia Water is also available for purchase online at Amazon.com.

Junkless chewy granola bars are made in a way similar to those typically found in recipe books with Non-GMO ingredients you can find right in your household pantry. Each food product contains just 8 or less all-natural Non-GMO ingredients that you know and trust. In front of me here are four fabulous flavors – Cinnamon Roll, Strawberry, Chocolate Chip and Peanut Chocolate Chip.

Tervis Tumbler manufactures insulated tumblers that use double-wall technology to harness the natural insulating properties of air. The double-wall insulation is made by inserting an inner liner that fits inside an outer shell, creating a layer of air between them. The two liners are then permanently fused together. The insulation reduces condensation and keeps beverages hotter or colder longer than non-insulated cups and glasses. You can order these essential warm-weather items in a variety of customized designs!
