I’m so excited to report that I’m teamed up with several of my favourite brands to offer up this giveaway; I shall be doing the giveaway in two parts; one for May and the second for June.
All of these products feature in a healthy may morning ritual providing extensive health boosting benefits and so this giveaway celebrates HEALTHY MAY MORNINGS!
Here’s a bit more about each of products:
Together Health tops my list of favourite health brand supplements because as they put it ‘from soil to the ocean, all of our products are grounded in nature. The ingredients we use are sourced from whole foods, powerful plants, and the mineral-rich depths of the seas.’ I take their Ashwagandha DAILY and it’s made such a massive difference in how I feel and my energy levels. Likewise my partner and I also take their B12 and Magnesium. Their magnesium for example is sourced from the ocean and comes from sustainable waters. Likewise the Together Health doesn’t use any artificial product additives or processing aids in our products
Vegan Health is something I strongly believe in! And while I think it’s wonderful so many new vegans are born each day, I also believe that veganism needs to be done right! So many vegans (including myself) have made the mistake of not supplementing with B12 and like me have learned the hard way and have suffered from fatigue and low energy because of the lack of it! Thankfully with the help of Together Health’s B12 this is much easier to do. This B12 is taken from their whole food form, our bodies understand them better and this makes them far easier to absorb. Using carefully controlled low-heat conditions, Together Health preserve all the naturally occurring goodness ‘you find in fresh foods, like live enzymes and phytonutrients, amino acids, trace minerals and other bioactive co-factors. Their calcium seaweed is complete in a natural marine multi-mineral complex providing bioactive calcium with 72 other trace minerals.’ Sounds pretty Awesome to me!
Like B12, Vitamin D is a significant aspect of Vegan Health and especially given the lack of sunshine in England, this is such an important mineral to supplement with! From Web MD, ‘Known as the sunshine vitamin, vitamin D is produced by the body in response to skin being exposed to sunlight. It is also occurs naturally in a few foods — including some fish, fish liver oils, and egg yolks — and in fortified dairy and grain products’. As vegans we don’t get vitamin D through most of these foods so its crucial we supplement. Furthemore,
Low levels of Vitamin D can cause increased risk in:
- Increased risk of death from cardiovascular disease
- Cognitive impairment in older adults
- Severe asthma in children
Omega 3 – This is another wonderful supplement for Vegans. Omega 3s have numerous benefits including brain health, fighting inflammation and keeping depression at bay. It’s often found in fish like anchovies and oysters and oils like walnut and flaxseed. As vegans we are probably not getting enough of this, so it’s also important to supplement. Thankfully Together Health does a wholesome product and have sourced omega 3 from pure algae. The algae is grown in a 100% contamination-free environment and extract the omega without using any chemicals at all. Each softgel is filled to the brim with plenty of naturally extracted DHA- and EPA-rich algae oil.
Finally! To my favourite deodorant Elsa’s. I absolutely Love THIS PRODUCT! I have been looking for a clean deodorant for awhile now and have tried Jason’s and LUSH until I found out that some of the ingredients in these ‘natural’ deodorants were quite high up on the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Cosmetic’s List (Danger Will Robinson!).
Synthetic fragrances found in anti-perspirants usually contain propylene glycol along with parabens and aluminum. These toxins can build up and cause irritation and have even been linked to toxic effects. Also with anti-perspirants they block the sweat ducts and so then you have a build up of lymphatic waste.
So my search led me to Elsa’s. Clean, with minimal ingredients; what I loved WERE the ingredients; coconut oil, Vitamin E, Shea Butter, Himalayan Pink salt, Kaolin Clay and not much else AND BEST OF ALL, the deodorant works. I feel confident knowing that I won’t have any emanating odors from my armpit using this brand. Plus the Flavours smell heavenly!
In sum, these vitamins and minerals and deoderant are a perfect way to start your HEALTHY MAY MORNING! Be sure to participate in the giveaway and do keep an eye out for later on this summer when I’ll be doing my Part two!
