Supplements for Optimal Health
We Don’t Always Have Time to Eat the Way We Know We Should
It’s best to get nutrients – vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and enzymes from a whole and varied organic diet, but there are times when we need to augment and enhance our diet with a solid foundation of supplements. When shopping for supplements, buy the very best quality you can afford. I recommend nutraMetrix.
The nutraMetrix line of advanced nutraceuticals are formulated using the latest reasearch, cutting-edge ingredients and industry-leading best practices. Many nutraMetrix nutraceuticals are available using the Isotonix delivery system – the scientifically-proven most effective way for nutrients to be absorbed and utilized by the body, providing maximum results.
Neal’s Yard Remedies (“NYR”)
NYR is a nontoxic skin and personal care line that offers products for both men and women.
When it comes to ingredients, NYR prides themselves on their honesty, integrity and transparency. They make our products with the maximum organic, natural and wild ingredients, and carefully select other functional ingredients (detergents, emulsifiers, surfactants etc) with a view to safety, efficacy and biodegradability. NYR’s entire range makes use of high quality organic plant-based ingredients, and they fully disclose the ingredient information.
What’s not in NYR products
NYR believes that what you leave out of a product can be as important as what you put in. Here’s just a few of the ingredients you won’t find in any of their products, and why:
No silicones – they coat skin, and impede its natural function
No mineral oils – derived from petroleum, and have a tendency to block the skin
No parabens – these are linked to hormonal imbalances
No GM ingredients – not enough is known about possible long-term implications
No phthalates – it’s reported they have toxic impact on humans and animal life
No propylene glycol – derived from petroleum
No animal testing – unnecessary and cruel
No DEA – associated with known carcinogens
No EDTA – (powerful metal chelator), and doesn’t biodegrade readily
No acrylates – derived from petroleum
No nano – not enough is known about its long term implications
No BHT – linked to breathing and lung impairment
Young Living Essential Oils
Essential Oils are aromatic liquids. They are distilled from flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and the seeds of plants, and are rich in antioxidants, nutrients and compounds beneficial to health and vitality.
The distillation process is what makes essential oils so concentrated – it takes, for example, thousands of flower petals to create the drops that are in a single bottle of rose oil, and adding just one drop of peppermint oil to a glass of water has approximately the same concentration as 20 bags of tea.
