7 Supplements, Teas, and Treats That Target Brains and Beauty

Thira Burns

There are a number of wellness products designed to support cognition as well as the health of your
skin, hair, and nails. Our director of wellness product development, Thira Burns, doesn’t like the limelight, but
we convinced her to explain. Burns has a BS in clinical nutrition from UC Davis and an MS in nutrition science
from San Jose State University, and she is a registered dietitian nutritionist. She has thick, silky hair and
glowy skin and a sharp mind. These are her favorite tools for internal and external benefits.

Burns’s team vets the documentation verifying the purity and quality of the supplements goop carries by diving
into third-party testing and double-blind studies on ingredients. So she knows that these products are manufactured
according to the FDA’s current good manufacturing practices. And she knows that the label claims are backed by research.

  1. WELL-ROUNDED

    Beauty in a Bottle has ingredients associated with beauty like MSM and biotin. But it’s also a multivitamin
    in disguise. Dr. Nigma Talib—the naturopathic practitioner who designed it—knows the value of niacinamide, selenium, and vitamins A, C, and E for skin health. And she knows the value of a well-rounded multi for
    supporting all cells: those that show and those that don’t.*

  2. TURN IT UP

    Keep B Famous around for when you want a potent boost of B vitamins. The B vitamins are crucial for a
    well-functioning brain and for metabolism. But—common theme here—they also contribute to healthy skin,
    hair, and nails.*

  3. SCAFFOLDING

    The third product in Dr. Nigma’s trio—my colleague Gerda Endemann is taking all three right now—contains
    generous amounts of vitamins D and K. You may want these for appearance’s sake: to support strong, healthy
    bones. Or you may appreciate their value for inner beauty—that is, for your cardiovascular and immune systems.*

  4. CEREBRAL

    Magnesium is good for almost every bodily process, but magnesium threonate in particular supports the brain
    and healthy cognition. It comes in a liposomal gel to be consumed in one gulp.*

  5. HOT

    House of Waris Sweet Clarity tea is great for an afternoon slump. It’s made with organic ingredients. I
    love that it has calming tulsi (also known as holy basil), and the blend of that with energizing rhodiola is
    just right.*

  6. SPARKLING

    The green-tea-and-grapefruit flavor of SkinTē—a sparkling, refreshing drink—contains hibiscus, hawthorn,
    passion flower, and nettle. It’s lightly sweetened with erythritol. And it includes 3,000 milligrams of
    collagen peptides. There’s nothing else remotely like or as good as this product.

  7. FOG LIFTER

    It was incredibly rewarding designing Nerd Alert. Being able to incorporate the perfect amounts of
    L-theanine and caffeine into a café au lait–flavored chew with organic raw cane sugar was so satisfying.
    There’s great clinical research showing benefits of this combination for memory and attention. People who
    don’t want to drink coffee after lunchtime can try one of these instead.*
