Go to yoga and pack the fridge with organic foods. Soak in an Epsom salt bath and diffuse some essential oils. Meditate, journal then jog your worries away. These are all healthy living activities to fill up your days and become a way of life. With the cornerstones of health sorted (nutrition and exercise), it feels pretty good. But you deserve to feel GREAT. And all it takes is introducing a few small, but impactful daily products into your everyday wellness.
So, you know how the gut is called the second brain, right? Let’s start here because, lovely, everything is a more difficult with tummy troubles.
1. Introducing Life 9…
Gut health is something that we rarely focus on unless there’s a problem. You know, the distended, ‘pregnant’ stomach that makes you want to live in leggings (and never look at jeans again).
The digestive system impacts many important functions in the body, which includes maintaining a healthy immune system, energy, and mood regulation. It’s an ecosystem that speaks directly to the brain, via chemical neurotransmitters.
Life 9 is a full-spectrum probiotic that combines 17 billion live cultures, from nine beneficial bacterial stains, to support gastrointestinal health. Probiotics are the microorganisms (yes, those found in yoghurt) that help the gut absorb nutrients to get the most from our food. The Life 9 capsule supports the natural cleansing of the gut and promotes healthy digestion in adults. The delay-release technology ensures the ingredients emit in the small intestine.
What to take: One capsule daily, after your evening meal.
We bet there’s one area of health that probably isn’t a part of your daily repertoire … eye nutrition.
Yes, vision wellbeing. We stare at screens all day long; phone-laptop-TV-repeat, without giving it much thought. Interesting, isn’t it? Go on, check the Screen Time function on your iPhone, just to see how many hours you’re staring at just this device.
Eye health goes beyond sight. For one;exposure to light late at night can impact our sleep. It’s an epidemic that experts have coined, ‘Digital Eyestrain.’ Big screen televisions, computer monitors, smart phones, tablets and even some fit-bit watches, are all culprits in emitting blue light.
Be sure to addYoung Living’s IlluminEyesto your morning regime. It’s a dietary supplement you’ll never forget to take, before a long day’s work. IlluminEyes helps reduce eye strain and visual fatigue and supports healthy eyesight.
Vitamins A and C nourish your eyes and the botanical ingredients, lutein and zeaxanthin, sourced from marigold flower extract helps reduce eye strain and maintain healthy eyesight. It’s also got carrot concentrate inside. Suddenly, your parents telling you to “eat your carrots to see at night” makes complete sense.
Oh, and don’t be fooled by the name. IlluminEyes is also fab for the skin, in terms of vibrance, strength, and elasticity.
What to take: One capsule daily.
