World Osteoporosis Day is happening on 20th October and Claire from our most popular magnesium supplement MAG365 came to pay us a visit and reminded us that their range of products does not stop at magnesium! Claire has very kindly penned the below blog for us focusing on their bone products.
What Is Osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis is a very common condition in Ireland, it is a ‘thinning’ of the bones and is a disease that manifests itself in childhood. However it often doesn’t become an issue until later in life when we become more aware of our bone density and maybe Osteopenia is a concern.
With knowledge of nutritional health continuously moving at a tremendous pace there’s always a ‘new trend’ and the most successful companies tend to be those who engage in research and use it to produce products with new and unique benefits. BetterYou is a UK based natural health company who certainly fit this bill and, over the last few years, they have time and time again introduced innovative and truly effective products to the market which have won many loyal customers. BetterYou was set up to provide availability of superior supplementation, using pioneering delivery mechanisms of those vitamin and minerals increasingly under represented or omitted due to modern diets and lifestyles, including transdermal (through the skin) magnesium and oral vitamin sprays. read more →

We think it does what it says on the tin!
We are often asked for something natural to deal with stress and, despite the fact that there are many great products on the market to do just that and it’s never a one size fits all situation as everyone’s needs vary, I often find myself recommending Higher Nature’s Balance for Nerves Capsules as one of the best of them.
The formula contains, among other things, the following :
A number of nerve soothing B vitamins including 50mg of Pantothenic Acid (B5) per capsule to support the adrenal glands and, over time, bring down the body’s production of ‘cortisol’ the ‘fight or flight’ hormone so relieving us of the need to be on ‘alert status’.
Magnesium, calms the muscles, nature’s relaxant.
L Theanine, an active principal of green tea, increases the body’s production of dopamine and serotonin, both of which are important in relaxation and mood stabilization. L Theanine is thought to affect the body in the same way as meditation does by leading to a state of relaxed alertness.
Lemon Balm which is regarded as a calming herb to reduce stress and anxiety and promote sleep.
Passion Flower which is also beneficial for anxiety and insomnia.
Taurine is an amino acid which encourages the production of the neurotransmitter GABA which in turn decreases the production of cortisol and adrenaline. This allows the body to manage anxiety so that thoughts don’t go spiraling out of control.
So if stress is an issue for you either in the shorter or the longer term consider a natural supplement to help bring you back into balance and remember how good life can be. We think that Higher Nature Balance for Nerves might just be a good first port of call.
30 capsules (two or four daily) retail for €7.99 and 90 capsules for €21.99.
