  • Love yourself and your gut

    Love yourself and your gut

    Great health starts in the body’s digestive system, where nutrients from food and supplements are broken down, absorbed and distributed to the rest of the body. We are all aware of how the food that we consume today has deteriorated in vitamin and mineral value. 
     
    An unhealthy or damaged digestive tract and diseased organs will starve the rest of the body of essential nutrients and allow toxins into the bloodstream.

    Probiotic means ‘for life’ in Greek.
    These friendly microorganisms, when taken in adequate amounts, form the core of nutritional supplements, as their use positively influences the whole body and your overall health.
     
    As much as we think that we are healthy, most of us have a deficiency of some sort. 
     
     
    Before we consider taking any supplements  watch  this video explaining why we should be taking OptiFlora daily. 
     
     Taking OptiFlora improves the following:  

       Impact of food poisoning.
       Food allergies.
       Lactose intolerance – it helps to break down lactose from milk.
       Infections like sore throat,candida and bladder infections.
       Prolonged times of stress.
       After surgery or a course of antibiotics.
       Constipation or any bowel problem like:

     IBS
    Belching
    Indigestion
    Diarrhoea
    Cramps
    Thrush
    PS: It may be necessary to supplement up to 3 times the normal dose of 1 capsule per day when taken after a course of antibiotics or to fight off an infection.

     

     
     
    If you have unhealthy gut flora,  no matter how many good supplements you take, they are not absorbed by your body! You are, in effect, throwing your money down the drain!!
     
    The Annique OptiFlora is the start to building up a good immune system.

  • KIDNEY HEALTH....easy with Rooibos Tea

    KIDNEY HEALTH....easy with Rooibos Tea

    During the month of March, awareness is raised around the importance of our kidneys.  Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) affects 1 in 10 people worldwide.  The good news is that kidney disease is largely preventable.  Education and awareness of the risks of obesity and a healthy lifestyle, including proper nutrition and exercise, can dramatically help in preventing obesity and kidney disease.

    How can I prevent kidney stones?

    Most teas, like green or black, contain a compound called oxalic acid.  It's also found in chocolate, certain fruits, vegetables, and raw leafy greens.  Normally, oxalic acid is naturally eliminated through your urine.  But when you don't drink enough water, consume too much sugar, and have a diet high in oxalic acid, oxalate crystals can form.  This is one of the most common causes of kidney stones.

    But  Rooibos tea does not contain oxalates.  That is why it is a great alternative to green or black tea for those who are prone to kidney stones. 

    Obesity linked to kidney disease

    Obesity is a high-risk factor for the development of kidney disease, but by replacing just one cup of coffee for Rooibos Tea every day, you could lose as much as a kilo every month. 

    Rooibos Tea contains no fat or carbohydrates and the weight loss properties further inhibits fat-storage hormones within the body. 

    Rooibos' unique bioflavonoid, Aspalathin, helps to reduce stress hormones that trigger hunger and fat storage, typically associated with high blood pressure, heart disease, metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance and Type 2 diabetes.  

    In a nutshell, Rooibos Tea can prevent the body from storing and even forming new fat cells.

    Kidney disease linked to heart disease

    All across the world, we are seeing a huge move towards alternative and more natural ways of treating illnesses such as heart disease, which is primarily a result of poor lifestyle behaviours.  These natural methods include everything from diet, exercise and quitting smoking to destressing via music therapy, meditation, and even drinking home-brewed Rooibos Tea

    Spanish researchers also found that drinking Rooibos can prevent the development of heart disease by preventing the liver from storing excess fat under the skin and around major organs.  There is a mounting body of scientific evidence which shows that Rooibos Tea is a potent antioxidant, has anti-inflammatory, antihypertensive and cholesterol-lowering properties.

  • Beloved companions

    Beloved companions

    The pitch of the whine is reaching decibels that are almost too much too handle!  As you get closer to the door and are about to turn the key, the pitch reaches unbearable heights, changing into a yipping sound!  

    I am sure that there are many who would know what I am describing  

    Yes, you are right, it is the welcoming committee of your fur-child or children! 

    Even if I am away for only 30 minutes, it is exactly the same excitement welcoming me home for as when I have been gone all day.  I feel so special that it is difficult to keep a straight face and not be enthusiastic back. 

    A little while ago our little Coco decided to eat something outside that did not agree with her at all. She was nauseous and limp, really causing us much worry.  

    The voices in my head were arguing that Rooibos would help her with the nausea,it had helped me!  After she had drank a full cup of Annique Rooibos with Mentha Longifolia  it has anti-inflammatory properties) and licked up an OptiFlora from my hand, the eyes were shining and she was demanding attention again! 

    Needless to say this .....BUT    

    It just goes to show that Rooibos tea is good for our beloved pets too

     Be sure to keep your emergency kit on hand for your fur child or children, just click on the links below to place your order

  • Your start to a new you

    Your start to a new you

    You might have heard of OptiCLA and wondered what it is all about  😶❓
     
    Let me explain:  OptiCLA is a safe fat burner that contains no stimulants or unhealthy weight-loss or performance enhancing ingredients.  It is specifically formulated to reduce body fat and increase lean muscle mass, resulting in improved body shape. 
     
    Well, when I first read these specs, I was blown away.  How can a capsule do so much? 
     
     
     
    A brief summary is that it prevents fat from accumulating in fat cells.  😯  
     
    Now, who will benefit from this?
     
    I think the obvious answer would be all men and women who would like to lose weight.
     
    My investigations showed the following benefits:
     
    Weight loss and increased metabolism  (yay!)
     
    By combining OptiCLA with a good diet and excercise regime, weight loss and decreased body fat is speeded up  ( yes please!)
     
    Enhanced muscle growth ( mm, looking toned sounds good!)
     
    Decrease the fat percentage and enhance the growth of lean muscle mass ( sounds so lovely!)
     
    Supports the immune system especially for those who exercise regularly  (always needed!)
     
    Shorts and t-shirts expose so much skin....
     
    While I am concentrating on looking good before the summer arrives, the skin that will be exposed also needs to be looked after!
     
    When I see the orange-peel like dimples, my Circulex Cellulite Treatment is applied before shower time by rubbing onto the affected areas vigorously.
     
    After removing the unwanted rough skin the application of Lipo-Sculpt+ Body Toning Creme, breaks down the fat stored by the body on the stomach, upper arm and thigh areas. (gym in a tube!!!) 
     
    The results are awesome!  I have lost centimeters without  much effort ( I do love healthy living, though)  I do drink plenty of Metabolism tea ( this is an appetite suppressant as well) 
     
     
    This month I have put together a package to help you to get started on your weight loss regime:
     
    1. Vanilla Lifestyle Shake 500g
    2. OptiCLA 60 capsules
    3. Lip-Sculpt Body Toning Creme 150ml
    4. Cellulite Scrub 150ml
    5. Metabolism Tea 50g
    The total value of these products are R1 231.00
     
     
    They are available for only R900.00 when you place your order here and pay via the website.
     
    You will receive a brand new tape measure to help you monitor those centimeters! 
     
    What have you got to lose?
