Hemp Hero

With so many CBD brands and products on the market, what makes the Wellness NanoHemp Everyday different? It’s more affordable than most, so you can enjoy the benefits of CBD every day. It’s also a broad-spectrum hemp oil that is nano-emulsified for greater absorption and bioavailability. In essence, it’s an accessible all-rounder to support your body’s own ability to address inflammation, promote sleep and calm, and enhance overall health. It’s also peppermint flavoured, making taking your daily drops of goodness a tasty and refreshing experience!

 

Terrific Trios

New on the market, SOiL’s gift-worthy essential oil trio boxes have been lovingly curated to meet a range of different needs. I love the Clarity set, which includes rosemary, peppermint, and lemon essential oils to promote concentration and sustained energy throughout the day. To feel focused and fresh, I use their Inhale trio, which features cedarwood, orange, and the SOiL Easy Breathe blend. The Exhale set is great for winding down in the evenings, as it includes their De-Stress Blend, frankincense, and rose geranium oil, all known for their calming, grounding properties. And if, like me, you are a walking mosquito target, you will no doubt treasure the First Aid trio, with lavender, tea tree, and eucalyptus to ward off the bugs as well as calm and soothe bites, itches, and more.

 

Paleo Skincare

It’s rare to find a truly innovative skincare product these days. Just when I thought I’d seen it all, I discovered the Sapienic minimalist range of microbiome skincare products. Designed specifically for sensitive skin, it really does offer a radically different approach to anti-ageing. The ‘Paleo BioTech’ formulations include a gentle, kaolin clay Makeup Remover; a Probiotic Mist with 10 million live probiotics per ml; a rich Lipids facial oil; a Sapienic Boost for problem skin; and an aqueous phase active Serum. While I started using the range for novelty’s sake, I am absolutely going to continue – for the sake of my now dewy, vibrantly healthy skin.

 

Cheers to Gut Health

We’ve written about the benefits of liquid probiotics before, and I remain a committed advocate. The health of my gut can be attributed to the Rawbiotics Daily Balance I drink every morning. It’s multi-strained, live-fermented, non-freeze-dried, and worth of every hyphen in this sentence. While this one is my go-to for restoring the natural bacteria needed for optimal daily wellbeing, I use the Gut Correct formula when dealing with any digestive disorders, and the Defence option when I’m in need of a bit of immune support.

 

A Drink a Day

Regular readers will know that I’m a big fan of an all-in-one solution. When I first heard Terra Nova’s Life Drink described as ‘an intensely nourishing and highly synergistic blend’, I reckoned it was definitely worth a try. And I’m happy to report feeling duly nourished! The pea and rice proteins leave me feeling well sated; the spirulina and chlorella comprise my daily greens; the freeze-dried berries give me an antioxidant kick; the fungi meet my medicinal mushroom needs; the omegas are great for my brain health and skin; and the digestive enzymes and microflora keep my gut in tip-top shape. What more could I possibly want in a glass?

 

The Skinny on Skinny

Strong may be the new skinny, but I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t want to feel slim and sexy this summer. Enter Skinny Green, the natural weight management product that also boosts energy. My summer-ready morning ritual includes a cup of their Green Tea or Green Coffee, or a capsule, if I’m on the run. The combination of the polyphenols in the green tea with the blood sugar-regulating chromium polynicotinate and garcinia cambogia sees me full of energy and supported in my weight management goals each day.

 

Protect & Defend

No matter the season, a strong immune system is always our greatest health ally. While I usually resort to good ol’ vitamin C and zinc, I’ve recently discovered the potential benefits of beta-glucans and acerola cherry for immune support, and am grateful to be able to take them both daily, thanks to BioFend from Flora Force. The natural nutritional supplement also includes the brand’s immune-modulating Wellmune® formula, and protects against the harmful effects of stress while strengthening immune defences.

 

Pimp Your Sip

After sharing the recipe for PrimeSelf’s Keto Adaptogen Hot Chocolate in our last issue, I simply had to stock up on the ingredients to keep enjoying it, even into the summer months! PrimeSelf offers cutting-edge nootropic and adaptogenic supplements, and their Collagen Peptides, Keto Creamer, and Shroom Elixir Powder can all be enjoyed in the most delicious way possible…in your morning coffee or creamy after-dinner hot chocolate!

 

Well Women

While I’m still in my thirties and haven’t yet entered menopause, I’ve seen how some of the wonderful women in my life can really struggle from its symptoms. I was encouraged to see that natural women’s health brand Salome offers dedicated menopause support supplements. Their M-Pause formulation contains a combination of herbal extracts including St John’s Wort and black cohosh rhizome to help improve symptoms like hot flushes, profuse sweating, and moderate depression and anxiety. I’ve shared the box I received to review with a loved one, and can’t wait to hear how it has helped her through this pivotal time in her life.
