H&A Serenity Compound™ Named Best Stress Relief Product of the Year!
The national healthy lifestyle magazine Delicious Living chose David Winston's Serenity Compound as the Best Stress Relief Product of 2017. The purpose of the awards is to educate consumers about making trusted and safe supplement choices.
"We are honored to receive this recognition and gratified that David's skill, experience and knowledge as demonstrated by this formula have been once again acknowledged," said Beth Lambert, H&A CEO.

Adaptogens are Hot!
Adaptogens have come of age. Recent articles on growing trends identify Adaptogens as being hot and getting hotter. It makes sense given the high stress levels of the modern lifestyle and the ability of Adaptogens to balance the body's systems. More brands are jumping on bandwagon and launching Adaptogenic formulas, but no one can touch the deep knowledge David Winston brings to the H&A line of Adaptogens. He literally wrote the book on them! 

Because of David's expertise, H&A's line of Adaptogens has always been acknowledged for their efficacy. As more patients and consumers pick up on the benefits of Adaptogens, you can be sure H&A products will meet their needs and expectations. ..see the New Products section below for details.
New Products, Name Changes & Updated Book
We're pleased to introduce several New Products, expanding our Adaptogens and Digestive Health lines.

Calm Adapt, Energy Adapt and Women's Adapt expand our Adaptogens joining newly renamed Daily Adapt (formerly Ginseng Schisandra) and Men's Adapt (formerly Men's Formula) and our popular Immune Adapt and Fit Adapt.
