An industry rep took things to new heights when she scaled Everest Base Camp.
Lynda Lucas, South West Area Rep for Kinetic, took on her greatest challenge to date, following other challenges in 2014 that included completing three Walk the Walk Marathon Challenges to raise funds for a breast cancer charity.
Commenting on the eight-day trek, Lynda said: “It was an amazing experience. I trekked through four seasons in that week from sunny 25 degrees to -10 at Base Camp. I saw some amazing scenery and met some lovely people on the way. The trek was very tough at times, especially coping with the lack of oxygen at high altitude. The trek was not for the faint hearted as a couple of my fellow trekkers had to turn back due to altitude sicknesses, with one being airlifted by helicopter to hospital at Katmandu.”.
Lynda was well stocked with Kinetic products, including Terranova Beetroot, Codyceps & Reishi Super Blend, Dr Bronner’s Tea Tree Liquid Soap & Lavender Hand Santiser and Amazing Grass Raw Reserve Berry Green Superfood.
60% of women and 80% of men will experience hair loss in their lives. However, 46% of women suffer in silence, feeling alone and unsure of where to turn for help, because female hair loss and hair thinning remain a greatly stigmatised ‘taboo’ subject.
Learning about hair growth, and the major causes of hair loss, can help to break this taboo and offer effective treatment.
A normal Hair Growth Cycle has a 3-5 year duration, with each strand growing to its own schedule. At any given time, 85-90% of hairs are in the Growth Phase, with 10-15% in the Resting Phase, having reached full growth potential. The hair is then released from the follicle and a new hair grows to replace it, completing the cycle.
Almost all types of hair loss have one thing in common – a disrupted Hair Growth Cycle – but despite many different causes of hair thinning and hair loss, achieving normal hair growth requires supporting and maintaining a normal Hair Growth Cycle.

Increasing numbers of people are turning to vegetarian, vegan and gluten free diets. More and more consumers want wholesome, ‘clean label’ products, with no added nasties, no GM ingredients, and everything ethically sourced.
