The New ‘Apple a Day’

YourUpdateTV

Experts say there are many positive health benefits to plant-based diets, and that means more people than ever are interested in the benefits of plant-based supplements. From protein powders to superfoods to skincare formulas, there are a growing number of products made from plant-based ingredients that can support your wellness goals. Recently, Registered Dietician and Founder of Nutrition by Mia, Mia Syn, teamed with The Vitamin Shoppe to discuss some great green and plant-based supplement options. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/krB7vGGQ0JM Overall Health and Wellness Plant-based supplements are becoming increasingly popular as people become more intentional about what they’re putting in their bodies. Aside from fitting within a range of diets and eating styles, they are a convenient way to support your immunity, stress levels, and even skincare routine. Kuli Kuli’s SuperGummies are a great example. They are a delicious way to get a daily dose of superfood ingredients that pack a powerful nutritional punch. Coming in three amazing flavors, each 2-gummy serving contains over 400mg of superfoods, like turmeric and moringa, that research suggests may support things like weight management and blood sugar management. Supporting Immunity Health professionals have predicted that this may be an especially severe flu season. Keeping your immune system healthy year-round is key. Making healthy lifestyle choices like eating nutritious foods, getting enough sleep and exercising are great ways to support your immune health. But supplements can also be of benefit and help ensure your body gets the vitamins and minerals it needs. The Super Green Smoothie Mix from Your Super is packed with 6 powerful superfood ingredients including wheatgrass and spirulina and is designed to support immunity and overall health. Greens Superfoods + Digestion Powder from Force Factor not only provides essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber from more than 40 fruits, veggies, and superfood ingredients, but it also contains digestive enzymes and probiotics to support gut health. It tastes amazing and is a great way to support digestion, immunity, and daily wellness. Beauty from Within Green and plant-based beauty supplements are definitely having a moment – think of it as beauty from the inside out. Some studies suggest that ingesting vitamins and supplements may have a more noticeable effect on your appearance, compared to topically-applied products. The Sea Moss Superfood Powder from Atlantic Naturals is packed with 92 vitamins, minerals, and collagen, which studies suggest can help improve skin appearance. It also includes Ashwaghanda, beet root and maca, making it beneficial for mood support, energy levels and brain health. It’s actually delicious and can easily be mixed into water or a smoothie. Another option is from The Vitamin Shoppe brand. Their Liquid Chlorophyll supplement supports immunity and healthy skin, and can even act as an internal deodorizer. Managing Stress This is a busy time of year for most, so it’s no wonder many people are feeling stressed. While there is no quick fix for busy schedules, we can support and manage our stress with exercise, meditation techniques, and also by monitoring what we put into our bodies. For example, Plnt Ashwagandha helps the body manage stress. It is a natural herb that has been used for centuries to promote relaxation and help the body adapt to stress by naturally reducing cortisol levels. It is certified non-GMO and comes in vegetarian capsules. Plnt wellness solutions are made with whole food ingredients that nourish your body and respect the planet, and are available exclusively at The Vitamin Shoppe.

Brüush CEO (NASDAQ: BRSH) Talks To Benzinga About Disrupting Oral Care

Bruush Oral Care Inc.

Click Here To Download The Latest Research Report on Brüush Benzinga had the pleasure of speaking with Brüush CEO and Founder, Aneil Manhas about the company’s history and where they are going. Here is what Manhas had to say: Benzinga - What was the inspiration for Brüush? Manhas was really interested in the success of two brands in particular - Harry’s and Dollar Shave Club. He had witnessed both of those companies take off in the early 2010s with a subscription-based model and oral care products seemed like an ideal fit for a similar model, but no one was doing it. Manhas saw a lot of similarities between the hassle of purchasing razor heads and replacement brush heads for an electric toothbrush. In both instances, the cost is expensive and the retail buying experience is annoying. He saw an opportunity to disrupt the electric toothbrush industry in the same way that Dollar Shave Club and Harry’s disrupted the razor market. Manhas shared, “If you’re going to the store to purchase an electric toothbrush or replacement brush heads, they are often locked up in cases within the aisle, which requires finding a store attendant to gain access and then figuring out what brush head is compatible with your device. It’s a miserable experience. I saw a problem and Brüush was my solution.” Benzinga - What sets your company apart from other brands offering electric toothbrushes? Currently, Brüush’s main competitors are the major brands like Oral B and Phillips. These brands are selling their high-end models for over $200, so the first thing that sets apart the Brüush toothbrush is the price point. Brüush is selling a top-of-the-line quality electric toothbrush that’s comparable to high-end models that retail for over $200 for a much cheaper price of $79. Manhas believes that the company has done an excellent job of creating a premium product for an affordable price. “When you get your Brüush toothbrush, you can immediately tell it is a premium product.” It’s what he likes to call “affordable luxury”. Manhas also highlighted how Brüush’s brush head refill subscription model is incredibly convenient for consumers. If someone likes their product, they can sign up for the subscription model, where they are shipped 3 brush heads every 6 months for $18 ($6/head). That level of convenience really appeals to consumers, especially post-pandemic, by helping them avoid needless store trips. The subscription model is something that Manhas believes is a strong draw, as he says that over 80% of customers opt-in for the brush head refill subscription. Manhas also believes Brüush has created an “experience” for consumers. He spent a lot of time focusing on the product's design, as he wanted to avoid creating a clunky and outdated toothbrush that looked like a medical device. He wanted to create a sleek unit that people would be proud to showcase in their bathroom. He paid a lot of attention to detail not only to the toothbrush itself, but also the packaging. The box is sleek, sexy and clean. When you open the Brüush packaging, it is a very Apple-esq experience that’s unlike any other electric toothbrush on the market and naturally becomes a very shareable moment on Instagram. Benzinga - Why do you think Millennials and Gen Zers gravitate to your brand? Manhas highlighted an estimated 70% of Brüush’s customers are within the 18-45 range, which is different from other electric toothbrush brands that skew to an older customer base. He shared that they are having wild success with millennials and Gen Zers, largely coming from their willingness to do what he called “disrupting oral care”. For the majority of their customers, the Brüush brand is their first electric toothbrush and Manhas noted that the company is very much going after that big market of manual brush users and trying to convince them there has never been a more opportune time to upgrade from manual to electric. Brüush has positioned itself as the go-to oral care brand for millennials and Gen Zers by shying away from traditional marketing initiatives such as television advertising and print media and instead directing their marketing efforts on digital channels where they have seen success. Brüush is also less focused on the type of statistics that oral care marketing has traditionally used like “9 in 10 dentists recommend” and opted for more personal messaging that resonates with their target audience. Manhas explains that the brand is trying to breathe life into oral care, which has typically been a very dull and boring category. “I want people to look forward to brushing their teeth. We want to deliver customers more than just a great product…we want to have a brand that speaks to them and one they can relate to on a personal level.” Brüush was super excited to partner with comedian Kevin Hart, a partnership that evolved organically. "I loved Brüush from the first time I tried it. Our partnership makes a lot of sense given we both are obsessed with smiles, everything about it feels natural and authentic.” said Hart in a statement. Manhas added that he believes the partnership has helped position the brand in a unique way but notes that Kevin Hart is just one piece of Brüush’s marketing puzzle. Brüush is active on social media and works with micro-influencers who showcase their real-life experience with the product. This, again, comes back to creating an experience for potential customers that is both authentic and enjoyable. Benzinga - What is on the horizon for Brüush? Manhas shared that Brüush has a lot in store over the next few months. Being the perfect gift, the holiday season is a peak period for sales. The company will also be releasing some holiday limited edition colors, so stay tuned for that announcement. Brüush is also expanding its oral care product line in early 2023, with the launch of toothpaste, mouthwash, dental floss, and a whitening pen in the first quarter, and an electric toothbrush designed for kids in the second quarter. Manhas shares that all the new products will have the same premium look and feel as the Brüush toothbrush. Manhas says that his ultimate goal for Brüush is to “own the bathroom” and create a diverse product line that appeals to millennial and Gen Z customers. He is optimistic about his goal, sharing that currently Brüush has a 90% 5-star rating on its website, a very low churn rate on the brush head refill subscription, and a product return rate of only 1%, which is pretty much unheard of for an e-commerce CPG company. He says, “We have a value proposition that is really resonating with the consumer. Our biggest challenge is awareness, so we just need to continue to work on getting the word out.” About Bruush Oral Care Inc. Bruush Oral Care Inc. is on a mission to inspire confidence through brighter smiles and better oral health. Founded in 2018, Brüush is an oral care company that is disrupting the space by reducing the barriers between consumers and access to premium oral care products. The Company is an e-commerce business with a product portfolio that currently consists of a sonic-powered electric toothbrush kit and brush head refills. Brüush has developed a product to make upgrading to an electric brush appealing with three core priorities in mind: (i) a high-quality electric toothbrush at a more affordable price than a comparable electric toothbrush from the competition; (ii) a sleek, countertop-friendly design; and (iii) a convenient brush head refill subscription program that eliminates the frustrating experience of purchasing replacement brush heads at the grocery/drug store. The Company is rooted in building a brand that creates relevant experiences and content, with the goal of becoming the go-to oral care brand for millennials and Generation Z.For more information on Bruush Oral Care Inc visit https://bruush.com.

Empower Kids to Prevent Racially Motivated Bullying

YourUpdateTV

All kids connected with bullying—those who experience it, engage in it, and even witness it—can suffer long-term mental health consequences. Recently, VP of Education, Research, and Impact at Committee for Children & Mom of 2, Dr. Tia Kim, participated in a satellite media tour campaign to talk about racially motivated bullying and ways to empower kids to activate their upstander power. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/WKlo9vIaKdk It's back-to-school season and it's never too early to start talking to kids about racially motivated bullying and empower them to recognize, report, and refuse it so they are set up to make responsible decisions and thrive. Committee for Children is launching its fifth annual Captain Compassion campaign during National Bullying Prevention Month to teach kids how to prevent bullying in all forms, with a special emphasis on behavior motivated by racial bias. Developed by Committee for Children in 2018, Captain Compassion is an anti-bullying superhero who teaches upstanders how to recognize, report, and refuse bullying through a series of engaging, age-appropriate comic strips. One out of five students report being bullied during the school year. In 2019, of the students who reported being bullied, race was the most frequently reported characteristic referred to by hate-related words. To help address this issue, this year’s Captain Compassion comics focus on a school community that’s struggling with the social-emotional effects of racially motivated bullying. With the help of Captain Compassion and her trusty sidekick Kid Kinder®, the entire school community learns how to stand up against bullying to create safe, welcoming, and inclusive environments where children of all backgrounds can thrive. Drawn from Committee for Children’s decades of work in the field of bullying prevention, the Captain Compassion campaign presents free, award-winning comics that provide families, teachers, and caregivers with powerful, research-backed tips to empower their children and communities to stand up to bullying. The Captain Compassion site also includes resources like a Secret Decoder Wheel puzzle for kids, informative videos, downloadable posters, and more. To learn more about Captain Compassion and bullying prevention, visit CaptainCompassion.org each week this October to read brand-new comics and solve the Secret Decoder Wheel puzzle with the children in your life.

NO DOGS LEFT BEHIND TO LEAD PUBLIC AWARENESS MEET-UP IN FRONT OF SPANISH CONSULATE IN NEW YORK CITY ON SUNDAY, OCTOBER 16th

No Dogs Left Behind

No Dogs Left Behind and a coalition of over 120 Spanish and international organizations have united to protect the Galgos Greyhounds in Spain by initiating a public awareness meetup in New York City. The goal is to bring awareness to new legislation that will exclude the Greyhounds in Spain from animal welfare protections afforded to other dogs because they are considered working dogs and are used for hunting. The meetup will take place in on Sunday, October 16 th at 12:00 PM in front of the Spanish Consulate, located at 150 East 58th Street (between 3rd & Lexington Avenues) in New York City. Please show your support for the Greyhounds in Spain by joining this coalition. The Greyhounds in Spain need your help to bring U.S. and international attention and to halt the new legislation and to ask the Spanish Consulate for support in defending the Galgo. Each year after hunting season is over, Galgos have the perilous fate of being abused, killed or released to starve in the streets in Spain. These beautiful sentient beings have no voice and need the public’s support to stand up for them and to demand the equal protections they deserve like other dogs in Spain. MEDIA ALERT: WHO: No Dogs Left Behind and a coalition of 120 Spanish and international organizations WHAT: Meetup for Galgos (Spanish Greyhounds) to bring awareness to new legislation seeking to exclude these dogs from animal welfare protection in Spain WHEN: Sunday, October 16, 2022, 12 PM ET WHERE: In front of the Spanish Consulate, 150 East 58 th Street (between 3 rd & Lexington Avenues) No Dogs Left Behind is a voice for the voiceless, beyond borders, and the voiceless Galgos need to be protected. “Many organizations in Spain have been fighting to improve the Galgos’ situation,” explains No Dogs Left Behind Founder Jeffrey Beri. “We need to help the Galgos, we cannot allow this legislation to pass. It is a backwards move that will result in countless lives lost.” What happens in Spain matters in countries like the U.S., which have better animal protection laws have a responsibility and an opportunity to both teach and hold other countries without equitable animal protections accountable. Given the closure of the Greyhound racing tracks in the U.S., more adoption programs are collaborating with programs in Spain to rescue Galgos and bring them to the US to be adopted. “Your next Greyhound may be a Galgo,” says Beri. “Let’s do what we can to help ensure that their lives and treatment are protected.” About the Galgo: The Galgo, a member of the greyhound family, is a unique and peaceful dog. They make wonderful family pets and are content to live in most any setting, even in urban apartments. They are social dogs and feel most secure in a multi-dog family. Their exercise level is no more or less than most dogs. About No Dogs Left Behind: No Dogs Left Behind (NDLB) operates boots on the ground in East Asia, fighting on the frontlines to rescue dogs from the illegal dogmeat trade. NDLB works hands-on with local activists through emergency response, pulling dogs directly from slaughterhouses, dogmeat trucks, wet markets and traffickers. NDLB’s mission extends beyond borders, advocating for the creation and enforcement of animal welfare laws, and raising awareness for a cruelty-free, sustainable world in which no animal is violated, exploited, tortured or slaughtered for commercial goods or profit.

How Trauma Can Affect Disaster Survivors

The Chicago School of Professional Psychology

Beyond the physical devastation of hurricanes, floods, earthquakes and other natural disasters, there could be emotional and psychological trauma with long-lasting impact. According to the National Institute of Health, the negative mental health effects of a disaster such as Hurricane Ian are not unusual, especially among children, women and the dependent elderly population who suddenly feel even more vulnerable. “Any disaster has the potential to trigger psychological/emotional distress and even post-traumatic stress, depression, anxiety, and other mental health disorders,” said Dr. Michele Nealon, Psy.D., President of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. “Studies show that suicide can increase 23 percent or more after a catastrophic event and minor symptoms can quickly escalate.” Dr. Nealon says disaster survivors may experience many different signs and symptoms, including: Reliving the traumatic event as if it were happening again (flashbacks) Upsetting dreams or nightmares about the traumatic event Avoiding thinking or talking about places, activities or people that remind you of the traumatic event Negative thoughts about yourself, other people or the world Lack of interest in activities you once enjoyed Trouble sleeping, eating or concentrating For children 6 years old and younger, signs and symptoms may also include: Re-enacting the traumatic event or aspects of the traumatic event through play Frightening dreams that may or may not include aspects of the traumatic event Anyone experiencing any of these symptoms, should be encouraged to check in with a mental health professional or their primary care physician to access the support they need, advises Dr. Nealon. “For the thousands who are affected by something like Hurricane Ian--many of whom live in rural areas or are from underprivileged communities-- access to counselors and psychologists may be difficult. As natural disasters continue to increase and worsen, we need to do a better job of ensuring that survivors can get the services they need. Developing the mental health pipeline of diverse mental health practitioners is more important than ever before,” she said. About The Chicago School of Professional Psychology Integrating theory with hands-on experience, The Chicago School of Professional Psychology provides education rooted in a commitment to innovation, service, and community for thousands of diverse students across the United States and globally. Founded in 1979, the nonprofit, regionally accredited university now features campuses in iconic locations across the country (Chicago, Southern California, Washington, D.C., New Orleans, Dallas) and online. To spark positive change in the world where it matters most, The Chicago School has continued to expand its educational offerings beyond the field of psychology to offer more than 30 degrees and certificates in the professional fields of health services, education, counseling, business, and more. Through its engaged professional model of education, commitment to diversity and inclusion, and an extensive network of domestic and international professional partnerships, The Chicago School’s students receive real-world training opportunities that reflect their future careers.
