The Vitality Expo took place the last weekend in September in the RDS so of course I took myself up to Dublin for the weekend. Like last year the Show was an opportunity both for health store members and our customers to see all the latest in innovative supplements and new wholefood products as well as to listen to the latest research from the most up to date thinkers in our industry.  Below are just some that I spoke to but these in particular got me excited!

Coyne Healthcare

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Here I meet the founder of Coyne Healthcare, a South African Company specialising in the distribution of supplements which are the very best in their class. Of particular interest were a great value liposomal vitamin C supplement, a turmeric supplement scientifically proven to be just as effective as anti inflammatory medication (but without the side effects) for severe rheumatoid arthritis and digestive illnesses like Crohn’s disease and, unheard of by me, a supplement called PQQ. These are the scientifically proven actions of PQQ:[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”13513″ img_size=”medium” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_outline” border_color=”green”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

  • Mitochondrial biogenesis – the creation of new mitochondria.  Mitochondria are known as the powerhouses of human cells as they create adenosine triphosphate (ATP) which is the main source of energy in humans.   As we age we have less and fewer mitochondria, PQQ is therefor able to counter this process.
  • Enhance Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) by 40-fold. As its name suggests, NGF is involved primarily in the growth, maintenance, survival of nerve cells and stimulating neurogenesis the creation of new neurons in the brain.
  • Reduces inflammation. A study revealed users of PQQ reduced creactive protein (CRP) by up to 45%. CRP is a major inflammatory marker.
  • Improved sleep and well-being.
  • Improved mental cognition and memory recall.

I can’t help but get excited at the prospect of bringing the very best and most up to eat supplements to Wexford.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Grahams, our new skincare range to alleviate eczema, psoriasis and rosacea

Grahams Natural Skincare is an extensive selection of natural Skin Care and Hair Care treatments for the conditions of Eczema & Psoriasis, Rosacea, and dermatitis. This range of clinically tested balms, lotions, shampoos, Body washes, and Deodorants provide effective relief from these conditions, for you and your whole family.

There are several types of eczema, some of which include dyshidrotic eczema & atopic dermatitis, and it is now believed to affect approximately 10% to 15% of the world’s population.

What is Psoriasis?  Psoriasis is a very persistent auto-immune skin condition that may also have an impact on the joints too. It usually leads to scaling and redness on the skin of the affected individual, and in most cases, outbreaks come in the form of patches known as psoriatic plaques.

What is Rosacea?  Rosacea is one of the most common skin problems today. This is a specific type of disorder that affects the blood vessels and causes the natural colour of the skin to turn to red (in patches). Rosacea can occur everywhere, but in most cases, it occurs on the forehead, nose, and cheeks.

Who are Grahams Natural Skincare?

The Grahams Natural Skincare story is a story of a desperate and passionate need for Geoff Graham (Co-founder of Grahams Natural) to create a natural and effective Eczema treatment for his son. With a lot of trial and error, Graham finally developed a cream full of natural, effective and clinically tested ingredients, that effectively treated the dry & itchy skin conditions of both him and his son.  Since then, Grahams Natural Skincare have spent seventeen years formulating products with only the highest quality natural ingredients to effectively treat a variety of different types of skin problems.

Where are Grahams Natural Skincare products manufactured?

Grahams Natural Skincare products are manufactured in Australia under the strictest of GMP compliance.

Why should I choose Grahams Natural Skincare over the regular treatments?

Many of the standard skin treatment products contain chemicals which have toxic ingredients that can exhaust your skin over time. Many of us will often turn towards chemical products as they are perceived as a ‘quick fix’ for the treatment of eczema but what we don’t know is that our skin will become prone to the steroids within them.

Grahams Natural Skincare products are derived from natural resources which happen to be one of the best ways to keep your skin vibrant and safe from harmful side effects.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
