The NS Code is a stamp of approval is for products, brands, and information we share with you. It's our way we maintain the integrity of our favorites and product recommendations — products that get approved by NS have these following standards met: More
Mission: From sourcing to company mission, we love to learn about small businesses and companies making an impact in the health of the community.
IRL use: It's one thing to recommend a product, but it's another that we use them ourselves. We try these products to see their impact and we sometimes write about it in the Trend series.
Efficacy: Does it actually work in the way it says it does? Do the products have clinical trials, evidence-based research backing their use or ingredients or claims? We've assessed the nutrition and health benefits from recommended products from our vast knowledge as a team.
