Say what you will about Kanye, but he was right about one thing, ‘Hey Mama, I appreciate what you allowed for me, I just want you to be proud of me.’
Big shout out to all the beautiful mum’s out there. We get our inspiration from you. You taught us to treat our bodies right, love who we are, and to always only moisturise UPWARDS on our faces. Here’s to you.
Mother's Day for us is all about giving back to our beautiful mum's. Therefore, we have listed some facts why our natural & organic supplements support your super-mama's health just wherever she needs it most:
HORMONAL BALANCE - HEMP SEED OIL
Hormone imbalance symptoms are very likely caused by sensitivity to the hormone prolactin. Did you know, Hemp Seed Oil can assist with reducing symptoms of PMS and Menopause?! It can also help with pain and tenderness, depression, irritability and fluid retention associated with PMS. #youbeauty
Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), found in hemp seeds, produces prostaglandin E1, which reduces the effects of prolactin. The GLA in hemp seeds regulates the hormone imbalances and inflammation resulting in less swinging moods and better times all round, no matter what time of the month it is!
PLUS: The linoleic acid and oleic acids found in hemp oil can’t be produced by the body but play a crucial role in skin health and anti-aging.
DIGESTION - APPLE CIDER VINEGAR (WITH THE MOTHER FOR THE MOTHER)
Tonik No. 2 contains 600mg of pure, concentrated Apple Cider Vinegar which DOES contain the mother. In ACV particularly, “the mother” is a complex structure of beneficial acids. As with many things in nature, vinegar in its unfiltered, unadulterated and unrefined form has a variety of benefits that are lost when it is filtered and heated, hence why Tonik No.2 Apple Cider Vinegar Capsules are 100% #organic & #raw with ZERO heat treatments, hooray!
SKIN CONDITIONS - COCONUT OIL
About 52% to 85% of organic coconut oil is made up of medium-chain fatty acids, also known as medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). These MCT’s assist with cell regeneration and have been linked with benefits to hair, skin and nail health when taken both internally and applied topically. Research suggests also that organic coconut oil has a beneficial effect on vascular health and our cardiovascular systems generally. It has also been documented that Coconut oil assists with gut health through an anti-inflammatory action which can assist with Crohn’s disease and Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
INFLAMMATION & DIGESTION - TURMERIC
When you think of improving your gut health, typically probiotics and fermented foods come to mind. However, adding a turmeric supplement to your diet can also support a healthy gut and can prevent serious intestinal health problems. Turmeric is beneficial for several components of the digestive system:
- The Intestines: Curcumin supports digestion by relaxing the smooth muscles on the walls and gently pushing food through the intestines. It also helps to prevent gas and bloating as food is being digested.
- The Colon: A healthy colon is essential for efficient gut function, as well as the promotion and growth of friendly gut bacteria. Curcumin facilitates the balance between your gut flora and the immune response by encouraging the glands on the surface to regenerate and heal when pathogenic bacteria or leaky gut is present.
- The Stomach: Turmeric helps the stomach lining in several ways. It inhibits the enzymes that compromise stomach health and boosts the secretion of stomach mucous. This mucous is the primary defence against damage from gastric acid.
- The Liver: Turmeric helps to increase cholesterol elimination by boosting the production of bile. When you combine turmeric with fiber-rich foods, your liver is more efficient at cleansing cholesterol by trapping it and moving it directly to the colon for elimination.
