Usually I’m pretty good about eating yogurt, but sometimes my stomach gets a little cranky. All Bestowed subscribers received a 7-day sampler of Align Probiotic Supplement, along with $5 off coupon for the full-sized box. I don’t take these daily, but when I do my stomach always feels fine afterward. What’s unique about Align is that it includes a unique patented pure-strain probiotic bacteria that was developed by gastroenterologists, which helps maintain the perfect digestive balance in the gut. Sounds promising!
I tried Justin’s Almond Butter before, but never the maple kind. It was thick, nutty, and delightfully almondy with a hint of sweetness. I’m an almond person rather than a peanut person and don’t really care for peanut butter, so this was the perfect sample for me.
Miracle Tree Moringa Organic Tea was another product I tried in the past. It has a very different taste; it’s like an herbal tea that kind of resembles rooibos, but less sweet. Does that make sense? Moringa leaves are actually antioxidant powerhouses – they contain over 90 nutrients vital for good health, including 25 vitamins and minerals and all 8 essential amino-acids. Now thinking about it, I should really pick up this one.
Natralia Heel Balm sample is something I don’t really need, but I’ll keep it around in case my feet get in bad shape. It’s made in Australia using natural ingredients to relieve very rough dry feet, providing drastic results after just three days of use.
Nature’s Bakery Gluren-Free Fig Bars are well-known, and they also happen to be my favorite fig bars. They are packed with calories so densely, one bite can fill me up for hours! I always carry around one of these in my bag, and thanks to Bestowed I get to try a kind I never tried before.
I love the idea behind Quest Nutrition Protein Chips, but I still didn’t have the opportunity to try them. I took a quick look at the label and noticed that they have a really good calorie vs protein ratio, containing 21 grams of protein per only 120cal. That makes a perfect post-workout snack to feed those muscles and help them recover quicker.
The box also included coupons for Ruby Rocket’s Veggie & Fruit Pops and a free one-month membership to Yoga Anytime online classes. I wasn’t able to find the fruit pops at my local store, but I haven’t checked “nicer” retailers yet. Yoga classes sound great, too! I usually just look on Youtube for free classes, but this one sounds interesting, so I’ll check it out.
[BONUS] Nektar Honey Crystals were included as a bonus in the box, and I used them together with my Moringa tea. They are delicious together!
THE VERDICT: This particular box seemed lighter than usual and didn’t pack much retail value, so this has to be one of my least favorite I’ve gotten this year. The products inside will be used for sure, I just wish it was more substantial.

P.S.: Due to time constraints I didn’t do the price breakdown, but the value was lower than the cost of the box this month, which doesn’t happen often.
