The hustle is real. Career ladders to climb, bedtime stories to read, personal trainers and PTAs… If plate-spinning is your superpower, you need the right balance of nutrients to keep you at the top of your game.
And that’s where our good friends at Wild Nutrition come in. Their Food-Grown® supplements, sourced from Mother Nature’s most potent ingredients, are formulated to help you thrive, not just survive. So let’s take a look at three health concerns affecting many of us as we navigate today’s ‘always-on’ world.
Not all stressors are created equal. Short-term stress can actually be beneficial to your health, when your fight-or-flight response kicks in to improve cognitive function if you’re up against a tight deadline at work or when you’re on high alert from a perceived threat.
The problem arises when your stress response continues firing, keeping stress levels elevated. That’s when it can take a toll on your health. Problems with mood, sleep, hormone balance, energy, headaches, blood pressure and friends saying “you look really tired” are just a few of the tell-tale symptoms of chronic stress.
“Your stress hormone-producing adrenal glands are hugely influenced by your blood sugar levels, so eating whole, natural, rainbow foods will really help minimise spikes and stabilise the levels of sugar in your blood.” Lorna Driver-Davies, Head of Nutrition
So too will Ashwagandha, a beautiful herb that helps you find calm in the chaos. Scientifically proven to increase your body’s levels of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), the relaxing neurotransmitter that reduces anxiety, this stress-reducing herb is so effective that it’s been used in Ayurveda medicine for over two millennia. Wild
Nutrition’s Ashwagandha KSM 66, a particularly therapeutic and potent form of the herb, is sourced from organic farms in southern India.
Craving caffeine to get through the day? Feeling sluggish by 2pm? If you’re struggling to cope with days that start early and finish late – with countless distractions in between – a little energy intervention could be required.
Let’s start with prioritising protein. Eat it with every meal, every day. Why? Because it slows the breakdown of foods and absorption of glucose into your bloodstream. Eggs, fish, meat, beans, legumes (lentils and chickpeas) and nuts are all great sources of protein.
So too is Wild Nutrition’s Vegan Protein + Superfood Blend. This remarkable supplement is formulated with earth-grown energy to help power your day with all-natural endurance. How? By harnessing the powerhouses of the plant world: vegan protein, super greens and adaptogenic mushrooms, some of Earth’s most nutrient-dense foods, all packed into one convenient powder.
“It’s hard to overestimate the importance of protein in our diets; every cell in our bodies contains it. One of the first signs of protein deficiency is fatigue – the good news is that it’s easy to remedy with diet and supplementation.” Lorna Driver-Davies, Head of Nutrition
Struggling to sleep?
To sleep well is to live well. Yet sometimes that well-rested feeling doesn’t come easily, particularly when the pressure’s on and everything just feels a bit off-kilter, including memory, motivation and mood.
Step forward, magnesium. This mighty mineral is known as ‘nature’s tranquiliser’, helping you drift off to a blissful slumber, as well as prompting over 300 enzyme reactions in your body. So it seems quite extraordinary that 75% of western women are magnesium-deficient.
How is that we’re so badly lacking? Processed foods are a primary culprit (thank goodness for Mindful Chef’s goodness) but it also comes down to lifestyle factors: stress, alcohol, coffee, sweating, digestive ill health, heavy menstruation and the contraceptive pill are just a few of the magnesium-zapping effects of 21st century living.
Fortunately, there are plenty of magnesium-rich foods to nourish your body. Think pumpkin seeds, almonds, walnuts, wheat germ, oats, millet, buckwheat, avocado, barley, brown rice, kelp, collard greens, kale, figs and dates.
“Our Food-Grown® Magnesium is molecularly bonded into raw, live whole food that’s instantly recognised and absorbed by the body. It’s my go-to supplement for mind and body, soothing the nerves and calming the spirit.” Lorna Driver-Davies, Head of Nutrition
