CALL ON COLLAGEN
I used to think of wine and spa days as girl’s best friends. These days, it’s collagen! Not only does it help support my skin, hair and nails, but it also gives my muscles, tendons and ligaments that something special they need to thrive. Our bodies crave a variety of amino acids to function optimally, and as we age, they produce less and less of these maintenance marvels. I love the fact that our Wellness Collagen is available in both a hydrolysed collagen and vitamin C formulation, as well as a vegan solution for the plant-based amongst us.
SENSATIONAL SYSTEM SUPPORT
With over 70 years of experience in the health and wellbeing industry, Solgar alchemises some of the finest nutritional and natural supplements in the biz. Formulated with the ultimate combination of immune-strengthening ingredients, these super supporters are easy to swallow and absorb. In addition to bolstering your immune defences, they also help to support heart health, energy production and healthy ageing, to name just a few of their myriad benefits.
RUNNING ON CHOCOLATE
No matter the question, chocolate is always the answer. More specifically, the Life Matrix Chocolate MCT Powder. It’s complete with all the energy-boosting advantages of the original Lifematrix MCT, and tastes delicious to boot. Medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) rapidly convert into the energy us fitness folks need to boost stamina while avoiding those pesky kilos. Not only will this clean fuel bulletproof your coffee, but it is also a perfect addition to a keto or paleo diet.
OUT OF THE BLUE
Most of us are exposed to blue light through our phones, tablets, laptops, televisions and more each day. It’s a type of light with short wavelengths that emit higher energy and penetrate deep into the eye. Over-exposure could lead to damage to the retina, long-term vision problems, cataracts, and a suppression of the natural release of melatonin and resultant sleep distuption. I swear by my OPTIC BLUE supplements, which have been scientifically formulated with lutein, zeaxanthin, l-taurine, and a unique blend of vitamins, minerals and omega 3 fatty acids to help protect against the damaging effects of the blue to which I am exposed every day.
I’ve always viewed my cuppa coffee or smoothie as a treat to look forward to, but it's never been more appealing than now that I’ve got my hands on some water-soluble CBD powder sachets! Tasteless and easily dissolvable, these little helpers will turn your beverage of choice into a cup of calm. While CBD is not soluble in its natural state, these peaceful powdered packs have been broken down into smaller particles in order to blend with the water molecules, so you’ll still get all the goodness CBD has to offer in its oil state!
If it looks like chicken and tastes like chicken, it must be chicken - right? Wrong! These plant-based chicken alternatives are the perfect choice for the veggie-conscious, with their combination of soy protein, fava bean, pea protein, lentil and chickpea flour. Thanks to these protein-packed meatless meals, you no longer need to scrifice on taste and enjoyment. Did somebody same flame-grilled tender fillets? Yes, please!
