Do you have persistent inflammation, perhaps with pain and discomfort e.g. in joints, skin or the gut, or perhaps you’ve had an injury that is taking a long time to heal? Or do you react to certain natural environmental substances like pollen, dust, fur, mould or even foods you eat?
You might need support to balance your immune response
Do you have severe issues with tiredness all the time, running out of energy really easily, even with simple daily activities? Do you find your feelings of fatigue are not relieved even after long periods of sleep or rest? Or perhaps your energy is severely affected when you train or do exercise, and you take a long time to recover?
You might need support for cell energy metabolism.
Are you are always tired, perhaps also feel the cold, generally overweight with thinning hair, water retention, and have poor skin quality? Have you been told, or suspect, your thyroid blood test (TSH/thyroxine) is out of range?
You might need support for your thyroid gland.
Thyroid disorders affect one in twenty people in the UK – could you be one of them?i
The thyroid gland is small, but mighty. It regulates how quickly our mitochondria produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the ‘energy currency’ of our body, and in doing so, underpins metabolism and the health of every body system.ii Its key tools are thyroid hormones that communicate with our body cells - thyroxine (T4) which can be converted to the more active triiodothyronine (T3).
Are you often ill, picking up infections easily and/or finding it hard to shake them off?
You might need support for your immune system.
Your immune system is your body’s defence mechanism, but it needs to be trained and supported to work well. A lack of immune supporting nutrients, stress, robust skin, lung and gut barriers or an imbalance of bacteria can all inhibit immunity, resulting in more frequent or more serious infections.
Are you worn out by stress, feel tired but wired, struggle to wake up, unable to relax and have difficulty sleeping? You may rely on coffee and sugary foods to boost your energy, crave salt or sugar, have low mood and motivation and struggle to maintain your weight, particularly around the middle?
If you’ve answered yet to any of these questions, you might need support for your stress response and adrenal hormones.
We should feel alert upon waking and energised over the course of the day to help us rise to and meet the challenges of the day, gradually becoming tired into the evening to prepare us for sleep. Stress is unavoidable in today’s life with constant notifications on our phones, busy jobs, relationship troubles, financial worries, busy family life and trying to achieve a work-life balance. It is not so much the number of stressors we have, but rather how we process and manage it.
Do you have energy slumps especially after eating, sugar or carbohydrate cravings, and are perhaps overweight?
If so, you might need support for your blood glucose (blood sugar) levels.
When we eat high carbohydrate or sugary foods, we raise the levels of glucose in the blood. This has to be well-controlled as high glucose levels have a negative effect on health. The hormone insulin helps us use the glucose or store the excess as fat. If this process is disrupted, we may have energy slumps when high sugar levels drop, experience weight gain, and perhaps even permanently disrupted metabolism.
Modern life has created a metabolic ‘energy crisis’. Many people seem to have dysfunctional energy metabolism resulting in persistent fatigue, high stress levels, weight gain and long-term metabolic dysfunction. ‘Unexplained’ fatigue is commonplace, comprising 5-7% of primary care appointments1 and is occurring in younger people too.2 Yet medical practitioners struggle to find solutions and are restricted to looking at a limited range of blood tests to identify obvious culprits such as anaemia. In fact, often the symptoms are sub-clinical and wrapped up in the complexities of energy homeostasis and the wider picture of stress and environmental demand.
New Energy Solutions to meet life’s demands
We are excited to let you know that our Energy Solutions have been re-energised and are available to order now!
Energy is at the heart of everything we do every activity we undertake and everything our body’s cells are doing for us in the background. It’s a complex process that works at different levels and can easily misfire with our modern diet and lifestyle. When it does, not only do we feel tired and unable to work or play, but it can also affect our emotional wellbeing and wider health, for example causing hormone imbalances or low immunity.
So, we’ve created a range of energy supplements to support all these areas and help you optimise your energy. To help you get started, we’re giving you 15% off our new energy range throughout September!
Our NEW synergistic combinations use naturally sourced, cutting-edge ingredients with no unnecessary additives making them even more advanced and effective than before! They also come in our NEW recyclable glass packaging.
Whatever the individual concern, we have the right energy solution for you.
It has been more than a year since the COVID pandemic hit us with full force. It’s taken a toll on all of us, affecting our finances and health. Some of these effects are more forceful and some are more subtle, with consequences yet to unveil themselves in the months and years to come.
Whilst the social restrictions are lifting in many countries, for many people who have had the virus, life isn’t quite getting back to normal as they’re left with prolonged effects of the infection – the so called ‘Long COVID’, or ‘Post-acute COVID-19 syndrome’.
