5. Organic Olivia | Immune + Gut Health Tinctures + (the best) Probiotic

Bridging the gap between the gifts of Western medicine and the wisdom of traditional herbalism, Herbalist Olivia, of Organic Olivia believes the two can coexist and in fact, work better together- and we couldn’t agree more. OO’s herbs are what they call “wildly clean” — meaning they’re a mix of both organically grown and ethically harvested from their natural habitats by our community of wildcrafters. (another thumbs up from us!) Unlike classic alcohol-based tinctures, OO’s “juice” is alcohol-free, easy to take, and tastes delicious.

Simply fill the dropper and drip under the tongue! Our top picks: Liver Juice to support those natural detox pathways leading to radiant skin and balancing hormones, Digestive Juice to get in bitters to support healthy digestion and reduce any unpleasant bloating and heaviness prior to a meal and Peace Juice to keep your calm in check. OO’s Not Your Average Probiotic is hands down the best Probiotic with a 3-in-1 approach combining pre and probiotics with enzymes. Your gut and immune system will thank you.
