I’m a sucker for health potions, powders and elixirs, I’m always looking for easier ways to incorporate more vitamins and minerals into my diet. Holland and Barrett is my favourite shop (even above Zara and Space NK) Crazy I know but there’s no better feeling than feeling good inside.
These are three health products I try to incorporate into my diet daily. I keep them in little suspicious looking bags and whip them out now and again…
Chia seeds – Consumed by the aztecs and Mayans, Chia seeds were thought to contain magical properties due to their ability to increase stamina and energy. The word ‘Chia’ came from the Aztec word for ‘strength’. People have been raving about Chia for a while, there’s been a lot of controversy surrounding this seed, positive and negative may I add! Chia seeds can curb your appetite making you feel fuller for longer, are packed with omega 3 fatty acids, are a great natural source of antioxidants and helps aid intestinal regularity. I notice a big difference in my energy a few hours after consuming them.
Supergreens – On the go super nutritious powder, You can add to water, smoothies, soups – Just about anything. I add a teaspoon or two into my morning smoothie because I will warn you, this does not taste good in water alone! The great thing is that it provides you with more than your 5 a day per serving It gives me a super morning boost and after continued use I noticed more of a glow to my skin.
Linwoods Milled organic Flaxseed – Sprinkle into soups, salads and yogurts. This powder is a great source of fibre, high in protein and iron and lowers cholesterol.
Always do your research before adding crazy looking stuff to your diet. These do not substitute for a poor diet, Think of them as superchargers you can add to enhance your healthy diet
