When you find a supplement or personal care product that “wows” you, you know you’ve found something special. We’ve been bowled over by many of the innovative products introduced on the natural health market this year. Some of them are just plain genius. And we think they deserve special recognition! Hence, the first-annual Amazing Wellness New Products awards.
All of these products stood out for us in one way or another. They include supplements with original delivery systems, those that incorporate new scientific research, formulas that use organic and non-GMO ingredients, and exciting new forms or flavors. All good news for consumers and supplement takers.
Products were nominated by manufacturers and sought out by our on-staff team of sleuths who regularly attend natural products shows. We polled Vitamin Shoppe store managers and supplement shoppers, and we tried and tested the products ourselves (the best part for Amazing Wellness staffers!).
So without further ado ... our Amazing Wellness 2017 Best New Products winners!
