Working with the seasons is a very simple and powerful tool that brings with it great opportunity to improve our physical and emotional well-being, whether indulging in the abundance of nutrient-rich seasonal delights of asparagus or strawberries, or embracing the warmer, lighter evenings with a light evening supper with friends or wild swimming with your family. Whichever ritual you choose to celebrate natures gift of summer, do so with abandon and gratitude. Here are my recommendations for a seasonal supplement regime this summer:
TurmaForte® Full Spectrum Turmeric
Our TurmaForte® Full Spectrum Turmeric is an advanced, clinically-proven, organic Turmeric, harnessing a proprietary extraction process to provide not just one but three therapeutically active constituents of this beneficial plant, including curcuminoids, turmerosaccharides and turmerone volatile oils. Standard Turmeric preparations focus on curcuminoids and curcumin alone, ignoring the potent and therapeutic value of these other fractions of this powerful ayurvedic plant.
KSM-66® Ashwagandha Plus
Our KSM-66® Ashwagandha Plus provides 500mg of ashwagandha root with Food-Grown® Magnesium to support the body's resilience. Ashwagandha is an exceptional indian herb traditionally used to support the body's resilience to physiological and psychological demand. KSM-66® Ashwagandha provides exceptional quality, organically certified ashwaghandha without the use of solvents or alcohol during the extraction process. Over 11 double -blind, placebo controlled studies have been conducted on KSM-66® and supported its use in anxiety, depression and stress as well as statistically significant improvements in memory, cognition, immunity, sports endurance and recovery as well as promoting libido in both men and women.
Our Food-Grown® Magnesium is in a highly bioavailable form meaning that mega-dosing becomes unnecessary. Magnesium is involved in 300 + processes within the human body and brain - and just some include support for a healthy nervous system, energy production and psychological function. It is therefore known as 'nature's tranquilliser'. It is estimated that up to 70% of western women are deficient in this key mineral. Magnesium is an important co-factor for the absorbency of other nutrients such as calcium and therefore is helpful in musculoskeletal health.
Women's Food-Grown® Skin Hair & Nails
Uniquely formulated for women, a complex of Food-Grown® vitamins and minerals, whole–food nutrients and herbal extracts to support natural beauty from within. Including zinc for healthy skin and nails, selenium and iodine for hair, copper for normal skin pigmentation and the antioxidants manganese and vitamin E. With sulphur to support connective tissue and botanicals stinging nettle extract and ashwagandha.
