Enjoying Summer with Smart Stack

I have started paying more attention to my health and skincare since hitting the big thirties. Health is wealth, and being a busy mum of 2 very active toddlers means I have to be on top of my general health to keep up with them. I recently came across Smart Stack by Smart Nootropics and I have been taking it religiously everyday.

For those who have never heard of this food supplement, it is a complementary stack built to improve focus, memory, energy and concentration. It consists of Alpha GPC, L-Theanine, Rhodiola Rosea, Acetyl-L-Carnitine, Bacopa Monnieri, Guarana, Magnesium, Zinc, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12 and Black Pepper Extract. All ingredients have been carefully picked to help increase productivity and mental clarity.

 

The Benefits of Smart Stack

Smart Stack is a dietary supplement made in the UK. There are quite a number of benefits you could get from taking these supplements everyday. The benefits I am most interested in are –

 

Energy Levels

These supplements will improve my energy levels which is what I need the most. Summer means long days and short nights, and with this current heatwave, some days can be very hard. Juggling the home and work full-time is exhausting. But with the right diet, rest and food supplements like this Smart Stack, I can go about my day with sufficient energy levels. I am sure many mothers would find this supplement very handy.

 

Memory and Focus

As a work from home or from anywhere mum, I need to focus on quite a number of things to get my work done quickly and properly. Errors are expensive and time-consuming. So it is very important to get things done right first time. I also need to remember what needs to be done each day since everyday is different. And with the many school activities lined up for the kids in the next few weeks, I need to ensure my memory is sharp. There is nothing worse than forgetting your child’s school trip day or dental appointment.

Smart Stack helps improve memory and focus, so this supplement is now my new best friend. I will be taking it everyday.

Mental Clarity

Smart Stack also helps improve mental clarity which is a big one for me. I am easily stressed so I am pleased this food supplement would be able to help. Working from home alone comes with many issues. My busy schedules and few hours of sleep (on some nights) can affect my state of mind. So I am pleased to know that my mind will benefit from this dietary supplement.

A pack of Smart Stack contains 90 tablets. It currently retails at £21.59 as there is a discount going on. But the normal price is £23.99.

The brand recommend taking 3 capsules daily to gain the desired effects. Also, the capsules are not to be taken in the evening due to its caffeine content.

Topping Energy Levels this Spring

Spring is finally upon us and the warmer is getting warmer. I have been busy getting myself and my household ready for the new season. We have been busy spring cleaning our home, getting our garden spring-ready and also staying on top of our health. The spring/summer months are usually very busy. So I have been paying attention to my health and well-being in time for the season.

I have been taking some supplements from Professional Supplement Specialists – Biocareto help me get ready for the new season. With all the hustle and bustle, I needed a helping hand. So I was happy to get my hands on these supplements below.

 

Methyl Multinutrient – 60 Capsules £30.95

This Magnesium Citrate Food Supplement is a potent supplement of magnesium that is easily absorbed and used by the body. It provides 100mg of elemental magnesium per capsule and is suitable for everyday use.

I have been taking both food supplements for weeks now and I feel amazing. My energy levels have gone up and I have been walking with a spring in my step.

If you are looking for ways to top your energy levels this spring, here are tips from Chris Newbold, Head of Clinical Nutrition at BioCare –

 

Avoid caffeine after 2pm

This is a tricky one for me but I working on it. I have noticed, I sleep better if I do not take any caffeinated drink after 2pm. Caffeine is great for increasing alertness, so starting the day with a cup of cappuccino may help sharpen your mind. But It can cause sleep problems if taken after 2pm. 

 

Give yourself a breakfast boost

Having a good breakfast is the best way to feel alert in the mornings. It’s important to go for healthier options, such as porridge and fruit, an omelette or wholemeal toast. Avoid fatty, deep-fried foods such as fry-ups, as these take a while for your body to digest and will leave you with less energy.

 

Get some sleep

This is an obvious tip but making of us do not get the right amount of sleep needed to function properly. A bad night’s sleep can leave you feeling drained for days, so make sure you’re well rested every night to feel reenergised the next day.

 

Add some protein

High quality protein will fill you up and give you all-day energy. So ensure you add some protein into your daily diet. There are many different options to choose from such as salmon and eggs for breakfast, followed by tuna or chicken for lunch and dinner.

 

Don’t ditch the complex carbs

Complex carbs such as brown rice, sweet potatoes, chickpeas, and wheat fuels the body and mind to help you make it through the day. These complex carbs are turned into glucose (blood sugar) in the body and are used as energy.

 

Ditch the drink before bed

Now this is a great tip as I believe many are not aware of it. Alcohol can trick you into thinking that you will sleep better as it can often make you feel drowsy and can make it easier to fall asleep. However, this can also affect your energy levels the next day, as you’re more likely to wake up and feel terrible. Drinking alcohol can dehydrate the body, so reach for a glass of water between alcoholic drinks to ease the hangover symptoms the next day.

 

How are you topping up your energy levels this spring? Are you taking any food supplements this season?

Food Supplements are Autumn/Winter Essentials

Autumn is in full swing and I can smell winter already! I tend to catch a cold and other cold-like symptoms, thanks to the bugs flying around this season. So I like to take extra care of myself once the chill is in the air, which is now. I still remember how badly I suffered in January when I caught  a flu for the first time. I won’t want that to ever happen again, so I have taken a flu jab and I plan to be on top of all my food supplements.

Some days ago, I received some supplements and I plan to make sure I take them all religiously. The problem I usually have is, I get excited about a new food supplement, take it for a few days/weeks, and then stop taking it. But I am hoping this won’t be the case with these here.

 

BioCare Food Supplements

I am loving this food supplement so far.

Vitamin D is so very important, especially in the autumn/winter months when we don’t get enough of it naturally. The UK government now recommends that everyone in the UK takes a vitamin D supplement daily during the autumn and winter months. So this is now a health essential, and this is where this Vega Vitamin D Range comes into play.
