Discover the miracle of magnesium…

magnes

Our need for magnesium has never been so great. Modern diet and pressured lifestyles have resulted in a drastically poor magnesium intake, significantly lower than anything experienced before. Tests on over 28,000 individual trials since 2012 have shown that four out of every five people tested were found to have worryingly low levels of magnesium.

As well as building bones, magnesium is vital for proper working of nerves and muscles. It is essential for heart health and helps control blood pressure and blood sugar. Deficiency impacts the body’s ability to function properly, causing symptoms including migraine, irritability, anxiety, extreme fatigue, insomnia, irregular heartbeat and lack of concentration.

Andrew Thomas, founder and managing director of BetterYou said: “More and more we are seeing vulnerable groups of people such as pregnant women, the infirm and infants enjoying the tremendous benefits that come from elevating elemental magnesium levels.

“Our Magnesium Oil ensures that no one misses out on the benefits of spray-on-the-skin supplementation – which we believe is the most effective way of making sure our bodies get the magnesium they need.”

To complement their award winning magnesium range, BetterYou have now added a specially formulated spray for the most sensitive of skin. BetterYou™ Magnesium Oil Sensitive Spray has undergone extensive dermatological testing, ensuring uber-sensitive skin can make the most of transdermal magnesium, which has been scientifically proven to supply essential magnesium faster than tablets and capsules.

BetterYou™ Magnesium Oil Sensitive Spray is available from www.betteryou.com

Nourkrin hair products

Nkr_Man_Woman_front

At Nourkrin we’re really aware of the relationship people have with their hair. Discovering problems such as hair loss or thinning can be very distressing, but it’s not only about the reasons behind the hair loss, it’s also about how it affects the lives of sufferers in terms of a loss of self-confidence, lower self-esteem and self-image.

One of our aims is to make the issue of hair-thinning and hair loss less of a taboo subject; a person’s hair can be a source of pride, joy and self-confidence, so it’s important they feel there’s something they can do if they’re worried or concerned about their hair. But just because a person is having difficulties with hair loss doesn’t mean they want to turn to chemicals and artificial substances to try and solve the problem, so we work hard to make sure all our products are based on drug-free ingredients and free from synthetic substances.

We’ve completed over 20 years of research and worked with professionals including GP’s, pharmacists, dermatologists and hairdressers to increase our understanding of the issues behind hair loss and as well as our seminal Nourkrin Woman and Nourkrin Man products, which are formulated to nourish the hair follicle and support the hair growth cycle in those who are experiencing hair thinning or loss, we also have a proactive range of products which help women defend against hair thinning and loss before the onset of a problem. And of course, we stay true to our core principles of using natural, drug-free ingredients in all our products.

A herbal education

Chris and Gemma 2

Potter’s Herbals has taken some creative steps to educate about the beauty of medicinal plants.

The herbal experts teamed up with award-winning British gardener, Chris Beardshaw, and actress and model Gemma Merna, during the recent Chelsea Flower Show as the pair wore specially designed hats created out of Potter’s Herbals plants and herbs.

Chris, a member of the Henry Potter Advisory Committee, and Gemma are champions of plant-based herbal remedies, and the hats were created by the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies.

Their appearance at Chelsea Flower Show comes amid new research from Potter’s Herbals, which shows nine out of ten people (87 per cent) believe we are a nation of gardeners, yet only one in six (17 per cent) of Brits could recognise echinacea – also known as coneflower. Furthermore, only 13 per cent of consumers can recognise the Traditional Herbal Registration (THR) logo.

Beardshaw commented: “Plants provided our very first medicines and they still have a lot to offer. Getting the perfect combination of colour and form is the key to an award-winning garden at Chelsea, so it makes sense that a herbal product made from the right combination of plants, and the right combination of tradition and technology, will provide the perfect natural remedy.”
