Summer is officially upon us—and with it, double-digit heat, smothering humidity, and sun umbrellas. And while we may not experience the the flu, and seasonal allergies that arise during other parts of the year, summer certainly brings its share of health concerns like sunburn, bloating and trouble sleeping. Thankfully, there are some natural supplements that relieve these common summertime ailments. That way you can ensure glowing skin and maximise wellbeing wherever you go this summer.
To keep your skin looking nourished and healthy throughout the summer, try collagen. As the most abundant protein in our bodies, it helps replace dead skin cells and gives our skin strength. Studies show that taking 2.5-5 grams of collagen can help improve skin moisture and elasticity, while reducing dryness and roughness—a plus when skin becomes dry and rough after hours in the sun. Plus, collagen may help reduce cellulite and stretch marks (hey bikini season!). Try our hydrolysed Swiss-made collagen Beauty Boost.
Probiotics are the good bacteria that populate the intestinal tract and keep digestion, immune function, and a host of other functions in check. As you navigate a summer full of barbecues and parties that don’t always include the healthiest food and drink options, probiotics can aid digestion and reduce bloating, while also providing an extra hedge of protection against possible food poisoning. Probiotics also help improve your skin’s health, so they may reduce acne and other inflammatory skin conditions. We like the probiotic caps from The Change.
Vitamins like Vitamin C and other essential vitamins make you more resistant to the summer sun and boost the body's own UV protection. Our Glow Gummies not only give you that summer glow but also provide you with a natural barrier from within. Try our Vitamin Glow Gummies here.
Magnesium is partially responsible for more than 300 biochemical functions in the body, including protein synthesis and blood glucose control. It helps relax the muscles in your digestive tract, neutralises stomach acid, releases pain-reducing hormones, and improves blood circulation. Taking magnesium supplements help battle common health concerns, like headaches, digestive issues, and trouble sleeping. In addition to supplementing with magnesium, we also recommend adding magnesium-rich foods to your diet, like spinach, almonds, cashews, avocado and broccoli.
Why not make a green smoothie with all these yummy ingredients and top it up with a sachet of collagen and some probiotics? Enjoy the summer and stay healthy!
