Evaluating Health Habits for 2022
Pharmacist and Owner of Town & Country Compounding says:
“I don’t typically like to make resolutions, but January is a good time to evaluate what health habits, vitamins and supplements are important to me and get into a new routine as the New Year starts. I don’t feel bad if something doesn’t work out for me right away, because my plan is to re-evaluate every month or so, and make changes as necessary based on my progress.”
This is what I’m going to try in January:
- Collagen in my drink once daily
- Take Hyalife2 capsules daily
- Protein shakes once daily *or at least every other day
- Take my Probiotic 23 daily
- Always be aware of my immune health

CollaGEN in my Drink Once Daily
I try adding 1 stick (packet) a day into my coffee.
Everyone seems to rave about collagen powder, especially my staff and friends of theirs who have given them feedback. I’m hearing about benefits for skin, aches, and pains. I hope my hair will grow. Women seem to talk about how their nails grow very fast, but I don’t have that goal!
People often put the unflavored powder in their morning coffee or their drink of choice. The portable single serving “sticks” make it easy to carry in a pocket, purse, or backpack.

Take Hyalife2 Capsules Daily
I want to take 3 capsules daily.
A compounding colleague of mine introduced this to me in March, and we have had excellent feedback from people about it.
“Hyaluronic acid is used to protect the eye during surgery, reduce inflammation in arthritis and joint pain, and to help prevent post-surgery scar tissue. Also referred to as hyaluronan, it has become commonly known in the cosmetic industry for plumping up facial wrinkles and lips.”
Age, Hyaluronic Acid, and the Skin
Hyaluronic acid is considered the ultimate internal moisturizer. It is present throughout the layers of the skin and acts like a sponge to hold moisture and keep the skin fresh and youthful looking. As we age, the distribution of hyaluronic acid among the layers of the skin changes. As we get older, hyaluronic acid significantly decreases in the upper layers of the epidermis, causing the skin to look dull and wrinkled. Unless HA is replaced constantly, collagen and elastin can become brittle and lose their structural function.
Hyalife2 hyaluronic acid capsules are made with a patented technique that makes it easily absorbed without altering its chemical structure.

Drink More Protein Shakes
Part of my goal with healthy eating is to have protein shakes more often.
My protein shake regimen will include Strawberry Protein Reboot & Recover.
Tip: Try adding 1 shake (with 2 scoops of protein) a day to your diet. This tastes amazing with frozen strawberries and greek yogurt blended in the shake.
Our new, delicious STRAWBERRY vegan protein powder, manufactured for Town & Country Compounding by Ortho Molecular
Protein Reboot and Recover (Strawberry InflammaCORE® from Ortho Molecular) is an advanced nutritional formula built to address immune challenges, maintain normal inflammatory balance, and strengthen gastrointestinal barrier function. It provides high amounts of L-glutamine and glycine, amino acids crucial for intestinal reinforcement and mucosal cell regeneration.
Take my “Probiotic 23” capsule daily
Probiotics have been extensively studied and are characterized as having broad GI and immune benefits, including (1) increasing the population of healthy bacteria following microflora imbalance; (2) supporting healthy bowel function; (3) increasing the production of short-chain fatty acids, which provide energy to the cells of the intestinal lining; (4) strengthening the gut-immune barrier by promoting a healthy gut mucosa; (5) aiding in the digestion of difficult-to-breakdown compounds like lactose and casein; and (6) enhancing detoxification of harmful compounds.
Our product is a unique probiotic formula (with 23 billion CFUs) designed to deliver active organisms shown to promote healthy gut microflora, protect intestinal integrity, and boost immune function. Included in this formula is Saccharomyces boulardii, an extensively researched microorganism shown to help restore microflora balance by enhancing commensal organism function.
Each capsule provides seven proven probiotic strains chosen for their ability to withstand the harsh gastrointestinal environment and adhere to the intestinal tract to deliver superior results.
Always be Aware of My Immune Health
Immune System Health will always be a top priority.
Immune Health will always be on my mind. Some of these products are great to keep on hand if an illness occurs or take daily:
Hyaluronic Acid: The Ultimate Moisturizer
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is the ultimate internal moisturizer, and 50% of the body’s amount of hyaluronic acid is located in the skin, with the remaining abundance in the joints and vitreous of the eyes, although it is also located in smaller amounts in many other areas. As we age, hyaluronic acid levels decline, which helps explain why our skin wrinkles after losing moisture with aging, cartilage and joints lose lubrication, and eyes become drier.
