Sponsored – Natural nourishment from Suma – a dozen ways to help your skin feel good.

rsz_2suma_soap-2

It’s almost a year since we introduced our range of 12 essential oil handmade soaps. Each one has unique properties that will help you relax and indulge your senses, and all are beautifully packaged into perfect little boxes.

Made just a hop, skip and a jump from Suma HQ, high in the Yorkshire Pennines, this range of hand crafted soaps are free from Parabens, SLS and palm oil, and are loaded with ingredients to hydrate, sooth and pamper your skin! Made using only the finest natural ingredients, pure essential oils, herbs, spices and flowers, these soaps are kind on the environment too.

Every bar is carefully hand crafted using a blend of olive oil, coconut oil, and shea butter, using an age-old traditional process which helps each bar retain all of the soap’s naturally released glycerine. It’s a method which

helps produce a wonderfully natural moisturising soap, with a rich creamy lather which is kind and nourishing to even the most sensitive of skins.

Each of the soaps is made using only the finest essential oils. They are beautifully coloured using herbs, spices, flowers and clays, with some wonderfully unexpected exfoliates, try the aduki bean soap and see what we mean! Each bar is individually boxed, making them ideal as a little gift. The only problem is working out which one you’ll try first!

Sponsored – Your daily dose of sunshine guaranteed…

rsz_dlux_range

A 2014 study by Cambridge University found that an average 1 in 10 men and women aged 40 – 80 were vitamin D deficient, probably because they were spending too much time indoors.

Spending a lot of time indoors during the summer months can contribute to deficient levels. Think about your lifestyle. Do you spend all day in an office? Do you travel by car? Do you use suncream of factor 15 or above when out in the sun? Do you socialise indoors? All of these factors prevent us naturally producing vitamin D from the sun.

Vitamin D supplementation should be considered by everyone. With only 10% of our required vitamin D coming from our diets, using sun cream to protect our skin and wash out summers make it even harder to achieve optimal levels. In this case supplementation is a convenient and reliable method for maintaining adequate levels within your body.

The award winning BetterYou DLux Vitamin D Oral Sprays are fast, convenient and an effective way to boost your vitamin D levels. Sprayed directly into the mouth and formulated for optimum absorption, the DLux range bypasses the digestive system delivering this vital vitamin straight into the bloodstream, providing faster nutrient uptake than tablets or capsules.

More information on the BetterYou DLux Vitamin D Oral Sprays is available from www.betteryou.com.

SPONSORED – Nourkrin hair growth supplements

Pharmamedico Nourkrin_group

There are many different types of hair growth disorder, including Androgenetic Alopecia, Telogen Effluvium, Alopecia Areata, Traction Alopecia, Trichotillomania, Cicatricial Alopecia and diffuse hair loss, which are caused by a range of internal/external factors, such as stress, hormones, diet, health conditions, medicine, hairstyling and genetics, among others. However, regardless of the hair-loss type or cause, the Hair Growth Cycle is almost always affected. This is because the major contributor to increased hair shedding and weaker re-growth is often a disruption to the normal, healthy Hair Growth Cycle.

The Hair Growth Cycle becomes ‘disrupted’ when internal/external factors de-stabilise the well-balanced system regulating hair growth within the follicles. A major aspect of Hair Growth Cycle disruption is a disturbance to the influential function provided by the critical proteoglycan proteins.

Effectively treating a disrupted Hair Growth Cycle requires providing the correct formulation of ingredients directly to the hair follicle, which is best achieved with regular supplementation to form a continuous, baseline treatment comprising essential bioavailable ingredients. Marilex® is a fractionated fish extract with specific lectican proteoglycans, which are the essential proteoglycan proteins influencing the normal function of the hair follicle. Marilex® is based on more than 25 years of research and development, and is the proprietary ingredient of Pharma Medico found exclusively in Nourkrin® products. The latest clinical study, published in a peer-reviewed clinical journal in 2015, concluded that, “supplementation with this bioavailable ingredient can revitalise dysfunctional hair follicles, and is beneficial to use as a continuous, baseline treatment for all types of hair loss”.

SPONSORED – 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
