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

Health is wealth, and beauty shines from within. So taking these BioCare food supplements daily is a must for me.

Here are the food supplements I got from BioCare –

 

BioCare Mega EPA (Omega 3 Fish Oil), 30 Caps, £10.96

I am loving this food supplement so far.

Mega EPA is a high potency fish oil capsule providing omega-3 fatty acids in a natural triglyceride form, naturally concentrated using NEO-3™ – a unique lipase enzyme process which results in a fish oil of outstanding quality and high potency.

 

BioCare Hair and Nail Complex, 90 Capsules, £29.95

As you should all know by now, I am growing my natural afro hair and I need all the help I can get. My nails are also in a bad shape, so I am hoping these Hair and Nail Complex helps.

Hair and Nail Complex is a multivitamin and mineral complex with lysine and horsetail extract. It includes biotin and zinc which contribute to the maintenance of normal hair and nails and copper which contributes to the normal hair pigmentation.

BioCare EyeCare Plus, 60 Capsules, £25.55

I am shortsighted. I wear contact lenses most of the time but you can also catch me wearing my recommended Burberry glasses sometimes. My vision is very important to me. So this EyeCare Plus is one of my favourite food supplements at the moment.

EyeCare Plus is an innovative blend of vitamin A, minerals, bilberry, ginkgo biloba, lutein & grapeseed extracts in a capsule. Also includes zinc, astaxanthin & zeaxanthin. Vitamin A, bilberry and lutein contribute to the maintenance of normal vision
 
BioCare Zinc Citrate, 90 Caps, £6.40

Zinc is very essential as it contributes to normal metabolism of vitamin A and can treat dry skin, acne and psoriasis. So this food supplement here is right up my alley!

Zinc has many general health benefits including its contribution to normal cognitive function, maintenance of normal hair, skin, nails and bones and normal fertility and reproduction. The citrate form of zinc has a high absorption rate.

 

Vega Vitamin D Range

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.

EveryDay-D: 400IU Vitamin D3 Spray £5.95

I like this Vitamin D3 spray a lot. It is easy to use, tastes great and compact enough to take around with me.

EveryDay-D: 400IU Vitamin D3 Chewable Tablets £5.95

I have a modern active lifestyle, so I found these food supplements very appealing. Here are the products I got from LithoLexal

It is very important we ensure that we get the necessary nutrients to maintain healthy bones. This Bone Care food supplement promises to maintain healthy bones.

This plant-based and drug-free food supplement is for developing and maintaining strong, healthy bones.

 

LithoLexal Marine Plant Extract Advanced Joint Health £29.95

Collagen formation is important for the normal function of cartilage, however, sometimes, external factors have a negative impact on collagen formation. This is where LithoLexal Advanced Joint Health comes in.

This plant-based and drug-free food supplement is for maintaining normal cartilage throughout life. It ensures normal function of joints.

The Benefits of Drinking Green Tea

I have heard a lot of good things about green tea, and I have been dying to try some for myself. So I was over the moon when I got the opportunity to try some Dream Matcha Green Tea the other day. I have been having a good cup of green tea everyday now. The benefits of drinking green tea are too numerous to mention here, but my aim is to touch on the main benefits.

When I think of Nootropics, the first thing that comes to mind is Green Tea. Green Tea leaves are full of amazing benefits and it is certainly more highly recommended than any beverage. I have always known green tea to be full of health benefits, but I was blown away by the amazing benefits a cup of freshly brewed green tea could do for me.

I have been loving this Dream Matcha Tea. The green tea comes as an extremely fine, bright green powder. It has a silky smooth taste, which is great. I am a huge fan of this brand  of Green Tea.

If you are contemplating trying some green tea, here are some of the main benefits of drinking green tea.

 

Helps with weight loss

Green tea contains no calories. Aside from that, green tea is known to have a higher dose of antioxidants than that contained in vegetables. The antioxidants in green tea called catechin polyphenols help to speed up the rate of your metabolism and burn your calories faster. That’s what makes it extremely effective in weight loss.

 

Lowers cholesterol levels

Most fatty foods contain what is called LDL cholesterol, which is also known as “bad cholesterol”. Bad cholesterol is known to block the linings of your arteries and if not kept under check, can lead to several cardiovascular diseases like stroke or heart attack.

Tannins found in green tea can reduce the level of bad cholesterol in your blood. What this does is to clear the buildup of cholesterol. Green tea also reduces the rate at which cholesterol is absorbed into your system.

 

Ensures a healthy heart

Cardiovascular disease can be really scary as it presents no symptoms especially at the early stages. Drinking green tea regularly helps to promote a healthy heart. It does this with the flavinoids contained in the green tea. The flavinoids also help in lowering your blood pressure. For those who are suffering from a heart condition or who have experienced a heart attack, green tea could help you recover faster.

Relieves you from stress

One of the most common problems we face in the world is stress. When not controlled, stress can cause a lot of harm. Green tea does help relieve stress, which is fab!

 

Promotes healthy skin

Green tea does wonders for the skin, thanks to its antioxidants. It contains anti-ageing properties that help to minimize the signs of wrinkles or fine lines.

 

What do you think of Green Tea? Are you a fan? Have you tried Dream Matcha Green Tea?

Beauty & Health Products

Trying new products and writing about them is one of my favourite things. So I have been trying some beauty and health products I received recently, and I have been dying to tell you about them. Here are a few of the products –

Eyelergy Eye Drops

I suffer from very bad hay fever, which some of you may already know about. It usually starts around June and eases off gradually in August. So I am fine now. I got this pack of Eyelergy Eye Drops some days ago, and I am holding on to it until my next hay fever season.

Some of us suffer from hay fever at various points, so if you are still struggling with hay fever or dry eyes, you could try this Eyelergy Eye Drops.

 

Eyelergy eye drops are sterile and preservative-free, so they are suitable for use when wearing contact lenses. They are designed to work fast, for effective relief of itchy, inflamed and irritated eyes caused by dust or pollen. The drops are also recommended to relieve dry eyes caused, for example, by wearing contact lenses.

CURAPROX Carbon Whitening Chewing Gum

I love this chewing gum. I am chewing it as I type this. Usually, I shy away from mint chewing gums because I find most of them too minty. But this is not the case with this CURAPROX Carbon Whitening Chewing Gum. It has a mild minty taste I love and it keeps my mouth smelling great which is fab!

Apart from keeping my breath smelling fresh, it also helps keep my teeth white and prevents tooth decay. What more could a girl ask for?

 

NEW Black is White chewing gum with activated charcoal whitens and re-mineralises teeth using Hydroxylapatite and contains Xylitol that helps to prevent tooth decay. Comes in a refreshing lemon-mint flavour which lasts for hours.  A must have for between brushing for a super everyday clean.

PURE Oral Hyaluronic Acid

I am usually not a fan of any health stuff I need to drink. I usually find that they don’t taste as good as I would like.  So I was a bit worried about this product at first. At the end, my love for trying new things that may benefit my life, or skin in this case won, and I added a satchet of this PURE Oral Hyaluronic Acid to a glass of water.

I love the mild saline taste. It was definitely not what I was expecting. I hardly tasted anything in my glass of water which was good. I have been adding to my glass of water everyday since then, and I am looking forward to seeing the difference. So far, my skin is looking a lot clearer and smoother since I started drinking PURE.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) or Nature’s Moisturiser as it is often called is found naturally throughout the body but most abundantly in the skin, where it helps create a smoother, plumper appearance. Each pack contains 30 days supply of PureHA.

 Each sachet simply contains 17mg of HA, 12mg of Vitamin C which equates to 15% of reference intake both in a light saline solution. That’s it and because PureHA is created from non-animal source it is also suitable for vegetarians and vegans too.

Prevasore Everyday Lip Therapy

The cold season is almost here and my lips usually suffer when the weather gets really cold. So I am very pleased to have this Prevasore Everyday Lip Therapy.

Prevasore comes in a pale green gel form, and it helps create a barrier between the lips and harsh environment – the weather. I love how it moisturises my lips, leaving it feeling smooth and soft.

 

Its unique formulation is designed to increase moisture retention, helping to keep lips soft, protected and cold sore free. Using Prevasore every day will help keep your lips healthy and looking great.

 

Good to know I can kiss away dry, chapped and sore lips with Prevasore.

Sudocream Skincare Cream

I like the fact that there is now a grown up version of the original Sudocream Antiseptic Healing Cream. I like how portable this Skin Care Cream is to. It is so easy to pop in a handbag and use on the go.
