Dr Oz Ultimate Shopping List: Drugstores

One of the things I dread most about shopping, especially food shopping, is sitting down and writing a list of what I need. Today Dr. Oz has done that for me with his Ultimate Shopping List. He outlined items we should all buy at the health food store as well as several at the grocery store, some specific to blasting away fat. What might be my favorites, though, are the packaged foods that he shared because every now and then we all need something convenient to grab, but we still want it to be healthy. Doctor Oz made sure that list contained foods that were high in fiber and protein, while be quick and easy to prepare.

Dr Oz’s Drugstore Must-Haves

Dr Oz Ultimate Shopping List for Drugstores: Ginger Chews & Epsom Salt

Dr. Oz Ginger Chews offer the dual benefits of easing indigestion as well as curbing your appetite.

One of my favorite places to walk the aisles and find good deals is at my local drugstore. I’m often surprised at the great prices I can find, but sometimes I am not quite sure what I should be buying that will benefit my family the most. When creating this particular list, Dr. Oz’s goal was to find items that had multiple purposes and would save you time and money while addressing your biggest health complaints.

Dr Oz: Witch Hazel for Skin Irritations

Many people spend a lot of money on different skincare products, but often times the products do not work, so they purchase something else that may or may not work either, leading to a bathroom filled with bottles of products and a lot of money down the drain.

Witch Hazel – Witch Hazel is an astringent and it has many uses. It can be used to immediately relieve many skin irritations from bites to rashes pretty much anywhere on your body.

  • Apply with cotton to rough, oily, or acne-prone skin
  • Soothes itchy rashes, irritation, or bug bites
  • Witch Hazel is found in the first aid aisle and costs $4 per bottle.

Dr Oz: Ginger Chews for Appetite

Indigestion problems can be a big issue for many people, but finding the right product for such a sensitive concern can bring a huge challenge. Dr. Oz says the key to choosing a product for your intestinal issues is to find one that can travel easily so you can bring it with you where ever you go.

Ginger Chews – Ginger Chews come individually wrapped making them extremely portable to carry around in your purse or have stored in a desk drawer.

  • Ginger Chews alleviate bloating, cramps, nausea, and gas.
  • Ginger works to reduce acid and inflammation in your intestinal system.
  • Ginger Chews offer the added benefit of curbing cravings.
  • They are found near the throat lozenges (in some stores they are in the candy aisle) and cost about $3 per box.

Dr Oz: Magnesium in Epsom Salt Relaxes Muscles

By the end of a long day many of us are often feeling sore with an aching back or tired feet, but finding the best way to relieve that pain or discomfort can be challenging, especially if you want to find something that isn’t a pill and doesn’t expire.

Epsom Salt – Epsom Salt is Dr. Oz’s personal favorite pain reliever at his house. He says it can last virtually forever, but you will want to use it so it will not last very long.

  • Epsom Salt offers relief from joint pain – Use it in a warm bath to ease body aches and sore muscles or with a warm damp cloth directly on the skin.
  • Use Epsom Salt on your skin with a warm towel to reduce swelling and bruising.
  • Epsom Salt contains Magnesium which will help alleviate inflammation and relax the muscles, but since it is outside of the skin you don’t have the side effects that you would if you took a pill.
  • It is found in the first aid aisle and costs about $4.

Dr Oz: Personal Steam Inhaler for Allergy Relief

Runny noses and watery eyes are common symptoms of allergy problems, but you don’t want to constantly be taking expensive over-the-counter medications or keeping your children home from school or yourself from work, so finding something else that works could be hugely beneficial when allergy season rolls around.

Personal Steam Inhaler – Dr. Oz says when he was a little boy he would watch his Dad sit over a pan of boiling water with a towel over his head, inhaling the steam. Dr. Oz admits it never made sense to him and he didn’t believe that it even worked, but now he says he understands why his Dad did it and he explains that as soon as that moisture enters your body it immediately eases your nose, throat, and sinuses.

Fill the Steam Inhaler with boiling water, turn it on, and put your face into it and inhale for about 5-10 minutes. Dr. Oz says it is great for the whole family and costs $10.

  3. I found them at Whole Foods grocery. My problem is they have a lot of sugar, although it is cane sugar. It hardly seems to be a good appetite supressant if it it so high in sugar,
