Maintain eye health with goji berries

For your eyes only.
To maintain eye health, go for goji berries.
Just a handful of goji
berries have been found
to help improve the
density of the protective
pigments in your eyes.
At the University of
California people aged 45-65 participated in a trial that found that those eating
28g (a handful) of goji
berries five days a week
for 90 days had an
improvement in the
protective pigments that
filter out blue light and
act as a sunscreen for
the eyes. Another group
took specific eye health
supplements, but their
levels of this protective
pigment remained
the same by the end
of the study. So go ahead, go for some gojis 🌿

All you need is me for your muscles

Almost everyone has had sore and aching muscles at some time. It’s then easy to reach for the anti-inflammatory warming ointments that are marketed everywhere. They promise to relieve pain. But did you know that some of them contain the poisonous substance Diclofenac. Diclofenac causes a serious threat to fish, aquatic organisms, plants, and mammals. It’s also difficult to break down in wastewater treatment plants so there’s a risk it ends up polluting our waterways. The Swedish medical products agency (Läkemedelsverket) are proposing a ban on these and other products that harm the environment in retail outlets except pharmacies. In my opinion there should be a ban on products that harm the environment everywhere. Check the ingredients in your ointments or tablets and try to avoid using one that contains Diclofenac. All the ingredients in All you need is me balm are anti-inflammatory. 100% of the ingredients are natural and 95% organic so it won’t damage the environment plus it comes in a sustainable tube made out of sugarcane. . Its lovely and soothing on tired, tight muscles, so why not try it next time? Even better if you can convince someone to give you a nice massage ;)

Best protection against sunburn, windburn and the elements

Again, All you need is me balm proved to be invaluable when skiing in cold, windy and snowy weather. Best protection against sunburn, windburn and the elements. In the morning we applied it to our faces. All you need is me doesn’t clog the pores, it lets your skin breathe but locks in moisture. In the evening we applied it to our legs for relief of our aching sore muscles. Next morning we were good to go again. All the ingredients in All you need is me are anti inflammatory. There are only a few ingredients but they are all active and work in synergy. Castor oil, beeswax, olive oil, sheabutter, vitamin E, blueberry seed oil and rosemary leaf extract. That’s it. As it contains no water it won’t freeze on your skin like water based creams do. As it has a limited ingredient list, All you need is me likely won’t irritate your skin. Of all my products, this is the one I’m most proud of. It was created for my son when he was a baby. Now he is my big “baby” and (reluctant) model in this post 😊

Increase skin elasticity

I think we all know that broccoli is a super healthy food. But did you know that broccoli sprouts are even healthier and have 50-100 times more healing properties than the broccoli plant. The sprouts are three-to-five-day old broccoli plants. They are a great source of vitamins, minerals full of protein, fibres, and phytochemicals.

Broccoli sprouts provide around 100 times more glucoraphanin. Glucoraphanin converts into the phytochemical sulforaphane. Studies show that Sulforaphane may protect against cancer, reduce inflammation, protect against some brain conditions like stroke, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and improve autism conditions. It may improve digestive health, heart health, lower blood sugar levels and improve joint health. Broccoli sprouts protect your skin from sun damage, reduce wrinkles, increase the elasticity in skin and strengthen hair follicles while slowing down the aging process. The sprouts are easy to grow but must be carefully washed as they are prone to bacterial contamination. I prefer to use organic broccoli sprout powder. It has a umami flavour and improves any dish but also great as a topping on popcorn and in smoothies.

Cult organic winterbalm

Little did I know many years ago when I was frustrated that I couldn’t find an organic balm for my baby without alcohol, fragrance and synthetic ingredients that I would create All you need balm. It’s still feels humbly surreal that All you need is me balm has become such an international cult product loved by men, women, makeup artists, royalty, celebrities, parents and animal owners. I’m so grateful 😊 All you need is me balm is sometimes compared as the organic version of the “other hour” cream and vaseline, both based on petroleum. Honestly, I don’t understand why choose to put petroleum on your skin that then ends up doing further damage to the environment. ..
Just some thoughts on a sunny ☀️ Sunday in the afternoon

Protect your face from harsh weather

Walking may be the simplest and most underrated form of exercise.

There is a lot of information out there about the positives of running and lifting weights, but the simple activity of walking can provide a whole host of benefits too.

Walking is simple, free, and nearly any able-bodied person can do it.

As well as burning calories, studies show that brisk walks may help to reduce the intake of high calorie snacks by half. Walking increases bone strength, every step counts. People who walk at least 1,5km a day have a higher bone density than those who don’t.

Walking is just as effective as running for fighting major diseases.

Regular brisk walking may help to maintain a healthy weight, prevent various conditions including heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and stroke. Improves your cardiovascular fitness level, strengthens bones, muscles, and improves muscle endurance. May improve your mood, sleep, balance, and coordination. Builds up your immune system and reduces stress. Researchers found that walking for 30 minutes, 3 times a week for 3 months had the same mood boosting result as antidepressants.

As for myself, I have a dog who is a very fast walker, come rain or shine, I’m out there walking. I have noticed that my normal winter lows are not as bad since I got my dog Spencer. If it’s very cold or harsh weather I protect my face with All you need is me balm. Since it contains no water but let’s your skin breathe, it’s perfect for protecting the face. My best ideas and thinking also happen out there on the walks.

See you out there :)
