As more and more people work toward balanced wellness, self-care, intentionality and leading better lives, holistic wellness has grown in popularity. Self-care encompasses physical and mental health as well as social, spiritual, and emotional well-being, fitness, nutrition, and diet. For the month of February, we will anchor on the concept of self-love from a holistic approach and how our products can help you manifest your goals and start your journey.
1. Source Naturals Alkaline Balance
Our modern diets prompt a shift in acidic levels in both the gut and the urinary system. This supplement regulates the body’s PH by increasing blood and urine PH. Apart from neutralizing the body’s PH, it also aids in weight loss, detoxification, improves kidney function, energize body cells, preserve bone mass, and improves muscle mass.
Additionally, the gut produces neurotransmitters like dopamine that affects how we feel. So, when our gut is healthy and balanced it triggers the release of this feel-good hormone from the brain.
2. Organic India Turmeric and Ginger Tea
This tea is a hydrating, stress relieving and harmonizing beverage that supports immunity. It also promotes healthy inflammatory response and digestion, whilst increasing circulation and providing a rich source of antioxidants. Further, it is vegan and caffeine free, and is best taken first thing in the morning before any meals to cleanse the body’s systems.
Turmeric and ginger tea improves mood and well-being as it influences serotonin and dopamine, which in turn increases feelings of calmness and euphoria.
3. Earth Science Almond-Aloe Moisturizer
Self-love results manifest physically through our skin, fitness, and general body appearance. This product is a fragrance-free facial moisturizer with Jojoba, Shea and Hyaluronic Acid which have hydrating, replenishing and anti-ageing properties that moisturize, soften, and reduce the appearance of premature ageing and wrinkles. It is suitable for all skin types and is best applied after cleansing and toning to both the face and neck.
Clear, hydrated and well moisturized skin elevates serotonin levels, boosts confidence, increases self-esteem and overall happiness.
4. Neocell Collagen
Our bodies naturally produce collagen, however, its production gradually reduces with age hence the need for supplementation. Collagen is a type of protein found throughout the body including skin, bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, teeth, and connective tissues. Collagen supplements are often used to promote healthy, elastic, hydrated and soft textured skin.
Neocell Collagen is a holistic beauty brand that aims to bring out your inner beauty and make self-care easy, since beauty is much more than how you look, it is about how you feel.
5. Green and Black Dark Chocolate
Dark chocolate contains Cocoa solids and Cocoa Butter without the milk or butter found in milk chocolate. Dark chocolate usually has at least 55% Cocoa solids—but typically lands at 70-80%, which causes it to have its dark colour and slight bitter taste. This bitterness allows it to pair well with a diversity of flavours.
It is a nutritious snack rich in antioxidants, fiber, Iron, Magnesium, Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Potassium and Selenium. It may increase blood flow, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, reduce the risk of heart disease and aid brain function. Further, it may help protect skin from sun damage and increase skin density and hydration.
If you need any more reason to tuck into some dark chocolate, you may be interested to know that it may also help improve your mood and make you feel calmer and more content. This is partly because dark chocolate stimulates the production of endorphins and contains serotonin, chemicals in the brain that create feelings of pleasure and improve mood.
