For me, Spring is epitomised by the word “flourish”. We experience longer hours of sunlight, the hopeful colour of the daffodils and an abundance of seasonal produce but it is also the opportunity for our health to flourish. Our natural synergy with the seasons and the arrival of the Spring Equinox, signifies our transition from the darker and colder days of winter into the physically lighter months of Spring and our need for a shift in health regime too. Here are my recommended products to support this changing season:
Looking for the ultimate cleanse?
Total Cleanse Programme
A spring cleanse can optimise this time, and is in my view a better time than the new year detox’s that have become so popular. Far from being a starvation diet, a spring cleanse is simply a way of lightening the load on the body and although gentle, it can be deeply nourishing and, believe it or not, enjoyable. Our Total Cleanse Programme provides synergistic nutritional and herbal supplements to support the cleansing period. The programme includes a downloadable booklet with more information on recipes, foods to relish, those to be mindful of and a shopping list.
Poor gut function or immune balance?
Multi Strain Biotic
Our Multi Strain Biotic is a bespoke formula using 8 strains of beneficial bacteria necessary for normal gut function and immune balance. This high strength provides 30 billion colony forming units (CFU) in a unique combination per dose. All our beneficial bacteria are micro encapsulated (with a protective coating) and freeze dried to substantially improve stability and absorption. Wild Nutrition’s Multi Strain Biotic does not contain FOS to minimize growth of unwanted bacteria and side effects such as bloating and digestive discomfort. This formula is safe in conception, pregnancy and breastfeeding and is recommended during these times by our co-founder and nutritional therapist, Henrietta Norton.
Our Digestive Enzyme Complex is a unique blend of GMO-free broad acting digestive enzymes derived from natural fermentation of natural substances including Aspergillus oryze, used in traditional Japanese cultures to produce fermented foods.This natural process produces a broad spectrum of enzymes required by the digestive system to break-down carbohydrates, plant fibres, proteins, fats and milk sugars. The advanced production method supports the enzymes resistance to gastric juices, while retaining their digestive activity to aid digestive health.
Caring for your skin?
Our award winning, extra low weight hyaluronic acid, is clinically proven to reach the skin surface. Found naturally in skin and connective tissue, it is used to retain water within the second layer of the skin. Hyaluronic acid when present in the body supports skin looking soft and supple. Hyaluronic acid levels decline over the age of 50 and supplementation may be supportive for mature skin, however Hyaluronic Acid also has value for young sensitive skin.
